        Autograph Postcard Signed

      Autograph Postcard Signed and dated 13 January 1946 to artist Theodore Spicer Simson, granting him permission to produce a medallion of Shaw's wife, who had died three years before. Old glue remnants on the verso, not obscuring the recipient's address, very good. Earlier, Simson had published Men of Letters of the British Isles: Portrait Medallions from the Life (1924) which included G.B.S. In full: "My wife died in 1943. She was sensitive about her personal appearance, and resented the slightest attempt to pass her off as a conventionally pretty woman. The result was that she could not bear any sort of portrait. The photographs I have were forced on her by the passport authorities. Your medallion, which was kindly if not flattering --- a bit sonsie perhaps --- shared the general fate. But there is now no reason why you should not reproduce the medallion ad lib. I, as her executor, have no objection. Both medallions are at your disposal if you can reproduce them and find any market for them. Glad to hear from you again after all the dangers. G. Bernard Shaw." .

      1946 - KELLER, Helen. HELEN KELLER TYPED LETTER, SIGNED, 1946 ON PERSONAL LETTERHEAD. 1 folded 8 1/2 x 11" sheet, Helen Keller's personal stationery, addressed (with original stamped envelope) to a Mr. Bachand of Worcester, Massachusetts, and dated November 30, 1946. The letter, which is an entreaty for financial support for the newly formed Committee on the Deaf-Blind of the American Foundation for the Blind, refers to Mr. Bachand as "dear friend," and is signed in ink in Keller's hand. At the time, Keller had been working for the AFB for twenty years (as she reiterartes in the letter). The letter's eloquent appeal contains descriptions of the experience of being without sight or hearing. Note the following paragraph: "All your pleasure would vanish in a dreadful monotony of silent days. Even work, man's Divine heritage -- work that can bind up broken hearts -- would be lost to you. Family and friends might surround you with love, but consolation alone cannot restore usefulness, or bring release from that hardest prison -- a tomb of the mind and a dungeon of the body." The letter is creased but not terribly so. A small two-color brochure (not in Braille) soliciting funds is included, with the Board of Trustees of the Committee printed on the back.

      Verlag Buch und Bild, Berliner Verlag GmbH Berlin. 1946-1948.. je 12 S. 4°, OBrosch.. Komplette Folge Nrn. 1 bis 63. Das seit dem 15. April 1946 unter sowjetischer Lizenz im Zweifarben-Offsetdruck vierzehntägig erschienene Satire- und Humorblatt 'Frischer Wind' war der Vorgänger des 'Eulenspiegel'. Chefredakteur war zunächst Lex Ende, danach Walter Heynowski. Am 1. Mai 1954 nahm die nun im attraktiveren Vierfarbdruck hergestellte Zeitschrift den Titel 'Eulenspiegel' an, nachdem 1950 die unabhängige, in der Nachkriegszeit sehr erfolgreiche Zeitschrift 'Ulenspiegel' eingestellt worden war. 'Frischer Wind' war sicherlich kein Oppositionsblatt, sondern unterstand - wie alle anderen Medien in der DDR - der Abteilung Agitation des ZK der SED. Dennoch waren seit dem Sommer 1953 verhaltene bürokratiekritische Ansätze zu beobachten. Auch der eine oder andere Parteioffizielle bekam nun mal 'sein Fett' weg. In den ersten Jahrgängen wurde überwiegend die lasche Entnazifizierung in den Westzonen thematisiert. Ausgabe Nr. 1 etwas lichtrandig und mit zarter Knickspur, Nr. 2 Titelumschlag lose, Nr. 22 leicht berieben und Nr. 63 hinterer Umschlag mit kleinem Einriss.

      Los Angeles: Pamphleteers, Inc. 725 Venice Boulevard, 1946. First American edition, first issue. 12mo. 98 pp. Original wrappers, printed in black. Fine. Perinn A2b. Provenance: from the Estate of New York architect, ELY JACQUES KAHN . Rand's anti-Collectivist novella was first printed in London in 1938; she revised it for the first American edition (1946), which comprised the entire issue (2000 copies) of "The Freeman" , vol. III, No. 1, and mailed to subscribers. The second issue (1500 copies) has the front cover printed in red and was destined for book stores. This copy has an especially important provenance, being from the library of the famous New York architect ELY JACQUES KAHN, in whose office Rand worked during 1937 while researching the profession of architect for her novel, THE FOUNTAINHEAD (1943). Laid into this copy is an early piece of ephemera bearing on Kahn's career: loosely inserted is the printed page from the 1909 exhibition catalogue of his two architectural drawings for the Salon. He was 23 years old at the time, and would later build over 30 major buildings in New York City. For a stunning illustrated list of his achievements, see ELY JACQUES KAHN, NEW YORK ARCHITECT (NY, Acanthus Press, 1995) His association with Ayn Rand is equally important to her career, and, in particular, her masterwork novel about the architect Howard Roark, THE FOUNTAINHEAD. According to Barbara Branden in her biography THE PASSION OF AYN RAND (1986, pp. 143-144), in 1937 "Ayn decided to spend a few months working in an architect's office, without pay, in order to become familiar with the day-to-day activities of the profession. Through a friend she met the famous New York architect Ely Jacques Kahn and he agreed to her plan ... Ayn spent six months working in Kahn's office as a filing clerk, typist, and general assistant. He was the only one in the office who knew that her real purpose was research for a novel, and he seemed charmed by the adventure of having her there ... It was while working for Kahn that Ayn solved the problem of devising a climax for her novel. One day, she asked Kahn 'What is the biggest technical problem in architecture at the moment?' He told her it was in the field of housing projects, and that the difficulty lay in finding a means of building modern structures at the lowest possible cost ... 'When he said "housing," something clicked for me. I thought that this was both a political issued and an architectural issue, and that it fitted my purposes. I knew that it was a good lead ... Suddenly - like Newton's apple - the total of the climax fell into place ... From then on, it was easy ... ' Ayn's idea for the climax of THE FOUNTAINHEAD was that Howard Roark would dynamite Cortlandt Homes, the housing project he had created." When the galleys for the book came out several years later, Rand asked Kahn to check it for any architectural inaccuracies. Kahn made a couple of corrections, Rand recounted, and, as quoted by Branden, "'I was tremendously pleased - I was really delighted ... I asked if he wanted an acknowledgment for his assistance, and he said no, it was not professionally appropriate, but that he would like me to give a general acknowledgment to the profession because they get so little recognition. And that's why I put the note in the front of the book, I felt I had to."' Rand's note of acknowledgment - which might well have been to the man himself - does indeed follow Ely Jacques Kahn's suggestion, and reads: "I offer my profound gratitude to the great profession of architecture and its heroes who have given us some of the highest expression of man's genius."

        THE CASE OF THE BACKWARD MULE (Superb Presentation Copy of the First Edition)

      New York: William Morrow, 1946. Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE BACKWARD MULE. New York: William Morrow, 1946. First Edition, first printing. A NEAR FINE copy (minor edge-wear, tiny bit of discoloration to the bottom edge) in a beautiful and bright NEAR FINE ORIGINAL PRICED ($2.50) DUST JACKET. SUPERB PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION BY THE AUTHOR in the year of publication relating directly to the Chinatown setting of the novel: "To Tee Rose/ from a guy who thinks she turns in some real writin'/ And may Chow Kok Koh [a character in this mystery] show you that the hill never seems so steep as just before the top/ Love from/ Yours/ Erle." Underneath the inscription, Erle Stanley Gardner has added his full signature followed by the date: June 1946. Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG and she always received Gardner's latest book in the mail -- usually immediately upon publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her dating from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE CASE OF THE BACKWARD MULE is the second and last China-flavored Terry Clane mystery, the previous Terry Clane mystery MURDER UP MY SLEEVE having been published nine years earlier in 1937. Terry Clane is a government secret agent who has harnessed some of the spiritual power of his Far East experiences to deal some very deadly mysteries in San Francisco's Chinatown. . Signed by Author.

Pierre Daguerre, 'Quand les jours reviendront': 'Oeuvre qui est beaucoup plus politique et sociale que roman proprement dit, malgré l'idylle captivante sur laquelle il est construit. Style d'un classicisme dont la pureté rappelle la grande époque. C'est l'oeuvre d'un 'honnête homme', au sens où on l'entendait au XVIIIe siècle. Le roman traite, dans le cadre d'un grand building parisien, de l'émigration des jeunes, de la gabegie présente, du manque de scrupule de la société actuelle. C'est une oeuvre d'une qualité trop rare pour qu'elle ne soit pas retenue, oeuvre dont toutes les idées sont pleines de justesse.' Editions Flammarion, Nov. 1946. In-4 En feuillets. Etat d'usage. Livré sans Couverture. Dos satisfaisant. Intérieur acceptable Classification Dewey : 840.091-XX ème siècle [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        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)."
