        Full Production Without War

      Princeton University Press, Princeton 1946 - First edition. Spotting on the boards and a small paper remnant adhered to the base of the spine from the jacket, as well as a pencil note from a bookseller dated in 1985 giving the provenance of the book, thus very good in very good dustwrapper with some small chips and tears at the extremities. Inscribed by the author: "To Susan Jenkins affectionately Harold Loeb." Jenkins was the wife of William Slater Brown, designer for the Provincetown Theatre, and a close friend of Eugene O'Neill's. Loeb's inscriptions are scarce. He was an important figure in Paris' expatriate community. He is also remembered in the literary world as the model for Jake Barnes' rival for the affection of Lady Brett Ashley in *The Sun Also Rises*, wherein his early kindnesses to Hemingway (using his influence with Horace Liveright to get In Our Time published) was repaid by being portrayed as Robert Cohn, the cowardly and especially "Jewish" villain.

        [Photo Album]: Hot Shot Swing Band

      Oblong small quarto. String-tied Japanese-style lacquer-illustrated boards. 38 mounted photographs, black and white, various sizes (between 3.25" x 4.25" and 7" x 5"); laid in are an additional 17 black and white snapshots (mostly 3.74" x 2.25"). Boards detached but present, overall very good, internally near fine. Pictures in the album feature the Hot Shot Swing Band, a jazz band made up of mostly African-American Air Force servicemen, presumably in Japan during the occupation in the late 1940s (two of the service men we could identify both enlisted in 1946). A clipping tipped-in shows the probable owner and compiler of the album, saxophone player, Private Donald L. Turner. The band (piano, sax, bass, drums) shares top billing in the album with (probably) Japanese exotic dancers, several featuring full frontal nudity (most of the laid in pictures depict the dancers nude; the images of dancers that are mounted in the album are mostly just scantily clad). An interesting vernacular album of a young African-American serviceman playing jazz in Japan. .

I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green. I even thought of scenting the paper with seaweed, and imagined clients commenting to each other: Strange thing about this book - it seems to bring a breath of the sea! The idea was humorously reported by my friend Robert Harling in Alphabet and Image, and I now hear that some advertisers are using my idea by scenting their paper suitably to obtain particular effects. The printing of John Buckland-Wright's magnificent engravings in green ink on gray-green paper was not entirely successful, as it diminished the essential brilliance obtained only by a contrast of full blacks on whites"" (Christopher Sandford, the printer, in Cockalorum, Bibliography of the Golden Cockerel Press, 170)."

        POSTER - Plaza de Toros de Vista-Alegre - Bilbao

      Ortega, Valencia 1946 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1946 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 104cm x 54.5cm, it is by J. Reus and it advertises a bullfighting event in Bilbao for 24 March 1946 starring the matadors Pedro Robredo, Ricardo Baldera de Mejico and Lorenzo Pascual Belmonteno. The poster was printed by Ortega of Valencia and it bears the printer's name at the bottom and also the square stamp of authenticity to the lower right side with a print number of 1572. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as light damage to the top edge. All of this could be rectified by a skilled archivist and, of course, the poster would be best conserved by professional linen-backing. We believe that few of these would have survived so long in anything approaching collectable condition, as they were meant to be pasted up on billboards. Our shop acquired this poster (one of a collection of 5) many years ago from a customer who used to live in Spain. We're now having a clear out of our basement and we have decided to put it on sale internationally. The poster will be sent, well packed, in a sturdy tube. Please note that by selling such a piece of original art, we do not necessarily approve of or support the sport of bullfighting.

      . WILLIAMS, William Carlos. Signed Photograph. A 6- by 9-inch reproduced photograph of Williams, removed from the special Oct. 1946 William Carlos Williams issue of the "Briarcliff Quarterly," which was dedicated to Williams and contained numerous works by and about the New Jersey-based poet. [See Wallace C374]. Information below the image states the photograph is by Charles Sheeler at the time of the Dial Award to Williams in 1926, age 43. Inscribed by Williams beneath the image: "To [Nick?], by virtue of a man who wants to do my portrait. William Carlos Williams." Williams used two pens for the inscription- his signature is in a darker ink than the inscription and he was gone back and touched up about four letters in the original inscription. $875.00.

        HISTORY OF WESTERN PHILOSOPHY. And its connection with political and social circumstances from the earliest times to the present day

      London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1946. FIRST LONDON EDITION. 8vo., 8-7/8" x 5-7/8", 916pp. Bound recent full brown morocco, ribbed gilt decorated spine, gilt lettered red morocco spine label, covers ruled in gilt, top edge gilt. A finely bound copy of Russell's hugely popular history, broadly covering covering philosophers and philosophical thought from the Pre-Socratics up to John Dewey and William James, and finishing with Logical Analysis. Russell won the Nobel prize for Literature in 1950, with the Nobel committee listing this title among the works that influenced their decision. While criticised by some as being too general, many found the book an accessible and easily readable introduction to Philosophy and it became a best seller which has not been out of print since.
