        London The Bastion of Liberty

      London.: Chromoworks, Limited.. Ca. 1946.. Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 38 1/2 x 48 1/2 inches (97 x 123cm), folded (probably as issued). 1/2 inch separations at the intersection of several of the folds, one of which has a 1/2 inch tear leading from that separation; overall in very good clean condition. This attractive pictorial map by artist Kerry Lee dates from the period 1945 to 1948. It is a post World War II celebration of London and the British spirit with Winston Churchill's words in the banner at upper right: "We would rather see London in ruins and ashes than that it should be tamely and abjectly enslaved," with evident reference to the fall of Paris. It was issued in different sizes over the years (this being the largest and the earliest; this printing also has a slightly glossy print quality). The main railway stations are named according to railway company (LNER etc) with additional location name (King's Cross etc) (newer versions of this map name only by location, following the nationalisation of the railway system in 1948). The Festival Hall has not yet been built (so pre 1951), with 'County Hall' being named in its place. The map shows the area of London from Earl's Court Road in the west to The City in the East, and from Regent's Park in the north to Lambeth and Bermondsey in the south. Bordering the map are vignettes of London attractions and important places (Epsom is the lower centre vignette) with coat of arms at the top centre. The map names and depicts important buildings (including all the major department stores along Oxford Street) and is liberally sprinkled with pictographs of historical characters. The publishing line at lower edge reads at left "Published in Great Britain by Chromoworks, Limited." At right: "Copyright in all countries. Published by The Travel Association of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, 6 Arlington Street, London, S.W. 1, England, for the Sole Distributors Messrs Sydney Walton and W. E. Bevan (all enquiries to the Blandford Studios, 71 Blandford Street, London, W.1.)" .

      New York: Dutton, 1946. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by the author on the half title page. Very good plus in a very good dust jacket.Williwaw was Gore Vidal's first publication, and it earned him the reputation as "the best all-around American man of letters since Edmund Wilson"(Newsweek). The military novel marked the beginning of his writing career, aged twenty-one, and is based upon his Alaskan Harbor Detachment duty. Williwaw is a quasi-autobiographical novel, and its value comprises not merely Vidal's excellent writing but the insight it offers into the author's experiences.

        Untitled [The Adventure of the Balloons in Upside Down Land]

      - Untitled collection of nine original watercolors that tell the story of juvenile balloons sold at a carnival and released into the air, where they find their way into "Upside Down Land". N.d., circa 1946, or in the immediate aftermath of World War Two. The order of the pictures telling the story -- there is no text -- is subject to debate, and one can not be certain that these illustrations represent the fully intended story, whether or not it was ever fully realized by the artist and storyteller. In any case, the balloons lose themselves with the manifold temptations of a candy shop. When outdoors, they are attacked by unsavory "balloon" monsters who puncture one of the balloons, who is then administered to by a balloon doctor who patches the hole. The balloons fly off rejoicing, and they dance a circle in the sky, Whether or not a complete suite of illustrations, there can be no denying the cleverness of the basic premise and the charm and skill by which the illustrations were executed. Not only is no published version of this story known, but also, there is no known story in which the concept of an "Upside Down Land" was used. An imaginary land is a commonplace in juvenile fiction, of course, but the ingeniousness of the Upside Down idea created here is that it allows for the illustrations to be viewed with equal appropriateness from top or from the bottom, and indeed, what is the top or bottom of the page is unanswerable, at least in six of the illustrations. The illustrations also capture a mid-twentieth century milieu superbly well. Nothing is known of the artist other than the name signed in one place, which is also not completely clear but appears to be Alberin. The watercolors are not all the same size but are generally about 27 by 20 cm.

        CHIAREZZA. Settimanale di vita sociale. [Direttore Salvatore Francesco Romano]. Anno I. 1946, n. 1-49. Annata completa.

      - Palermo, [Flaccovio], 1946, 49 fascicoli in-folio, in forma di giornale quotidiano, ciascuno di 4 pagine, rilegati insieme e protetti da una cartonatura di poco successiva (questa con lievi strappetti). La rivista terminò con fascicolo del 9 marzo del 1947. Marina Giordano, "Collage un'esperienza di esoeditoria d'avanguardia" in: TECLA, rivista dell'Università di Palermo n. 2: "Chiarezza" costituì un fondamentale strumento d'analisi della situazione politica, sociale e culturale siciliana negli anni della ricostruzione, dopo il secondo conflitto mondiale, ed ebbe una funzione di rinnovamento «pubblicando testi di autori europei di grande spicco e di alcuni americani (Paul Eluard, Louis Aragon, Andrè Malraux, Sherwood Anderson, John Dos Passos). Pur avendo una connotazione eminentemente letteraria e sociale, con interventi di autori come Vittorini, Quasimodo, Aleramo, Chiarezza dava spazio anche alle arti visive, ad esempio, con gli scritti dello storico dell'arte siciliano Giuseppe Bellafiore e con un ricco corredo illustrativo che alternava disegni di Grosz, Picasso, Guttuso e di artisti locali, accanto alle fotografie di Bronzetti".

        Brave New World

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1946. First Modern Library edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original red cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Signed and dated by the author in 1962 on the title page. Rather uncommon signed. After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision… The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode).

        Two questionaires submitted to Shaw in the form of letters from the Daily Mail, with annotations by Shaw, 4 pages various sizes, 5 and 20 July 1946.

      - The first letter, on two sides, submits six questions, to only the first of which (whether it is true that he will receive a party of well-wishers from Dublin on his 90th birthday) has Shaw given a response ('Nothing settled yet / GBS / 8/7/46'). The second letter, on a smaller sheet, proposes only four questions, the first again about his birthday celebrations (still nothing settled) and the others eliciting more typical responses:[Is it true that he had discarded the beginning of his latest play?] 'I don't know. I write my plays as they come, quite unplanned'.[How will he keep his mind occupied etc.] 'I am never at a loss for something to do. Have you any notion of the mass of business my works involve. Count them'.[Has he been approached about a film on the life of Dickens?] 'No'.

        The War Speeches 1940-1945

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1946. 1st Edition. Paperback. Near fine. This is the first collected edition of Churchill's war speeches, published as a paperback only in 1946. The book measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches, bound in pale blue paper wraps with turn in flaps like a DJ, and with contents printed on cheap pulpy paper. With only one softcover printing, this has proven a scarce and fragile edition - among the most difficult of Churchill's books for collectors to find in respectable condition. Offered here is an unusually excellent example for collectors. The covers are remarkably bright and clean, retaining beautiful blue color and showing no losses, even on the spine. The only exterior flaws to report are a slight lean to the spine, fractional wear to the very ends of the rear hinge, and a small triangular crease at the lower front corner. The contents are age-toned, as is unavoidable given the pulp paper, but otherwise clean and tight. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind. The front flap is neatly price-clipped. The book is protected in a removable, archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A224, Woods/ICS A113, Langworth p.241.

        Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo - Scheherazade: Programme cover concept drawing

      New York: , c.1946-7. Gouache on Bainbridge Number 80 art board (509 × 382 mm). Corners a little bumped, tape-mark verso, but overall very good. Unsigned, but possibly the work of Corrado Cagli, who did other not dissimilar work for the company during this period. As an Italian Jew Cagli fled Rome for Paris in 1938 when the enactment of the Manifesto of Race showed Mussolini's intentions to align his policies on race with Hitler's Germany. Cagli subsequently settled in New York, becoming an American citizen and enlisting in the US Army during the Second World War. On his return from service in Europe, where he had been involved in the D-Day landings and the liberation of Buchenwald, Cagli executed design work for a number of theatrical and ballet companies, including Lincoln Kirstein's New York City Ballet, and the exiled Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. In 1948, Cagli returned to Italy, becoming part of the second phase of the Scuola Romano, moving further into abstraction in a conscious reaction to the Neoclassicism of the Novecento Italiano with its taint of Fascism, but within this context continuing to work in the theatre, producing costume and set designs for the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, and also for the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

Scarce in this condition. (#126947). First edition. Author's first novel.

        Heed the Thunder

      New York: Greenberg. 1946. First. First edition. A fairly worn, but presentable, good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed by the author in pencil: "For Lois and Jim[?] very gratefully Jim Thompson 2-20-46." We do not know who the recipients were, but curiously, the dedicatees were Lois and Elliott McDowell. Whether this is the same Lois, with another companion is not immediately clear to us. Books signed by Thompson are very rare. We have sold three other books signed by Thompson in the past 20 years, and of those, two were considerably later paperback titles. The only other inscribed hardcover was another copy of this title inscribed about ten months after this one, thus making this the earliest inscribed Thompson book we have seen. To put it in context, we have handled more books signed by either J.D. Salinger or Thomas Pynchon than we have of Thompson. A superb copy of an exceptionally uncommon book, the second of only three hardcover novels published during the hardboiled author's lifetime. .

      New York, 8 April 1946. Letter. Normal creases from folding. Near Fine and a superb letter. Exceptional two-page Autograph Letter of @435 words on two separate sheets completely in the hand of and SIGNED by Charles Olson to poet, editor, and librettist Ronald Duncan, a literary acquaintance of T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. In part: "I have had [T.S.] Eliot's regrets on 'our' mss, as you are gracious to call it. His letter crossed me from [Ezra] Pound urging him to publish. Eliot said he thought it ought to be published, but in America first. It looks now as though it will be. Reynal & Hitchcock plan to take it, with changes, and expansions in the second half.... The fact is England has always been more hospitable to Melville, from his own books on.... It would be luck if Eliot would consider.... Pound said: Duncan will help. Will you please--and take my thanks? I am asking Eliot, if the new plan doesn't take, to let you have the mss. Do with it what you think best. It may well be that Eliot's doubts of an English audience may obtain for others as well. I should like to think not. But you are boss. I don't think when I wrote you last, I had read the Pisan Cantos. They are beautiful,and Pound last summer, after the torture of the 'Gorilla Cage,' had more power over his line than ever. He is fretting at Laughlin for not getting his Confucius out and not pushing the Cantos more, but he is generally in better spirits, has now the privilege of games[?] in the prison yard, and reads with ease." SIGNED "Charles Olson." Magnificent content.

Printed on Cardstock. Contains 115 photographs of the destruction of the Jews by the Nazis. Each page contains 3 or 4 pictures. The introduction of the book poignantly describes its purpose: "The incentive to produce this collection gave us our deepest desire to show the world the crimes of Germany, to give expression to the throttled cry of pain of the Jews. The desire to bring back our memories of Jewish Settlements which drowned in torrents of Jewish Blood. May the world have this knowledge and ponder on it. When words are too weakand too poor to convey the destruction and extermination of Jewish life, may these pictures found by accident on arrested SS soldiers, speak for themselves of the bestiality which will forever bring shame on human kind. " Attached paper front coversheet in facsimile only, mounted on front cover. Original coverboard, now inside, has chipped corners and other light wear as often found, very clean and solid inside. (HOLO2-101-36) .
