      [Prague] 1946 - Quarto (26.5 × 19 cm). Full leather binding over two raised bands; spine and boards embossed; decorative endpapers; elaborate calligraphic title page, eighty leaves of heavy laid paper. Very good. A custom-bound book produced for Frantisek Haehnel, who owned and operated the Smichov publishing house of Vanek & Votava from 1907 through WWII. Contains signatures and inscriptions by some of the leading cultural figures of First Republic Czechoslovakia. A fantastic example of the Czech genre of memorial books, it features the signatures of figures such as Jaroslav Seifert, Vitezslav Nezval, Viktor Dyk, Felix Salda, Josef Hora, Alois Jirasek, Jiri Karasek, Karel Weis, Emanuel Lesehrad and others. The most evocative signatures are found on the first page of the register, however, the only page to feature two signatures. Tomas Masaryk, then President of Czechoslovakia, was the first to sign the book on February 9, 1928. Nearly seventeen years later, on November 7, 1945, six months after the end of the Nazi occupation and just two weeks after his inauguration as the first president of the Third Republic of Czechoslovakia, Edvard Benes, Tomas Masaryk's loyal deputy and longtime Foreign Minister, signed his name dutifully below.

        Small Mama & Big Shoes (aus der Serie "Art-Mama") C-Print

      verso u. r. handschriftlich signiert "Tatsumi Orimoto", passepartouriert 55,6 x 45,2 cm (Bildmaß) Erster Teil einer ursprünglich zweiteiligen Arbeit aus Vorder- und Rückansicht. Die ganzfigurige, frontale Aufnahme der kleinen Frau irritiert und belustigt. Inmitten einer Straße auf einem Abflussdeckel steht sie in überdimensionalen Schuhen mit Gehstock in der rechten und Einkaufsbeutel in der linken Hand und blickt uns skeptisch an. Der Fotograf Tatsumi Orimoto, geb. 1946 in Kawasaki/Japan, widmet sich in seiner Serie "Art-Mama" seiner demenzkranken Mutter. Durch die Diskrepanz zwischen der kleinen, alten Frau und den absurd großen Schuhen zeigt er auf einfühlsame und humorvolle Weise die Traurigkeit und die Skurriliät der Krankheit und des Älterwerdens. Tatsumi Orimoto studierte am Institue of Art in Chicago und war 1972 Assistent von Nam June Paik, seit Ende der 70er-Jahre lebt und arbeitet er in Japan.

        Fun Work, a Folk Song in a New Way" ("Vesela pratsia, narodnia pisen'ka na novyi lad"). Set of seven illustrated Ukrainian postcards, most likely printed in a Ukrainian Displaced Persons Camp in post-war Germany

      [Germany] 1946 - Seven original postcards, printed in green and brown on card stock, with address sides blank, measuring ca. 10 × 14.5 cm. Edges lightly toned, else very good or better; each housed in protective mylar sleeve. A striking series of propaganda postcards, most likely issued by Ukrainian nationalists in a Displaced Persons (DP) Camp in post-war Germany. As was recently discovered, the illustrations are quite certainly based on a Ukrainian children's book by Okhrim Sudomora, entitled Fun Work, a Folk Song (Krakow and L'viv, 1944). It seems likely that Sudomora, or another Ukrainian artist, "transformed his harmless child's drawings into powerful anti-Soviet and anti-Nazi propaganda by changing a number of symbols, slogans, and texts to symbolize the Soviet and German regies" (Emil Allakhverdov, "Okhrim Sudomora's Anti-Soviet and Anti-Nazi postcards," Journal of the Rossica Society, no. 168). A series of paired animals thus symbolize both the Nazi and the Soviet regime: two bears thresh peas, whose husks are labeled Bulgaria, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania and so forth. Two roosters carry the victims of their "harvest" to a concentration camp. Two crows who have drunk the poison of "National-Bolshevism" are dancing and singing their leader's praises. The final image shows a sparrow sweeping away Nazi symbols against the background of a house in ruins. This, and the fact that the bird wears a helmet with the letter "A", may suggest that the postcards were indeed printed after the end of the war, in the American Zone of Germany. Regardless, as Allakhverdov notes, Sudomora--who had worked as an illustrator in Lviv and Kharkov during and shortly after the war, and about whom little else is known--was arrested for anti-Soviet activities in 1949 and received a twenty-five-year sentence. Whether this means Sudomora himself was involved in this "adaptation" of the images remains unclear. Regardless, the series stands as a remarkably daring attempt to visually capture the Ukrainian view on the two regimes. Not in KVK, OCLC, which only located a copy of the 1944 children's book by Sudomora at the University of Toronto. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Emléklap, a Nasser Péter Attila vándordij 1945-46 évi 2. helyezettjének. Czinkota Lászlo részére

      Januar 21, 1946, Ujpest - Illustrated. Title page with a montage of an original photograph. 2 full page illustrations, and one page with a clipped photo. Handmade leporello. Handwritten throughout in black and red ink. Signed by the designer. Leporello of brown card board. (8) pages. "Péter Attila Nasser challenge trophy" memorial award, a hand made leporello, created by the father to commemorate his son who was killed in Auschwitz, given to Lászlo Czinkota. The cover of this small booklet is a photo montage using an original photo of the baby boy Péter Attila Nasser, it follows the touching textual part which tells that the boy died in Auschwitz when he was only 15 months old, together with his mother, both grandmothers, aunts, and uncles, and illustrated with two watercolors. The Nasser family lived in Ujpest a small city close to Budapest (today a district of the capital), where the father ran a jewelry shop. During the Holocaust, about ten thousand Jews were deported from Ujpest to Auschwitz in July 1944, among them many children and babies like Péter. Today a "Stolperstein", a concrete cube bearing a brass plate with name and life dates, commemorates the memory of Péter Attila Nesser (1943-1944), at the entrance of his former domicile in Ujpest. More details of the family and the death of Péter could be found in his cousin's, Stephen Nasser's book (My Brother's Voice. Stephens Press, LLC, 2003.), who witnessed his death in Auschwitz and survived the Holocaust. Title and last pages stained, their illustration slightly damaged. Corners bumped, broken. Overall in good condition. Handmade leporello. Handwritten throughout in black and red ink. Signed by the designer. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Complete Poems and Stories of Edgar Allan Poe.

      New York, NY: Alfred A Knopf, 1946.. FIRST BORZOI EDITION. Two volumes. Octavo, pp.x, 542; x, 1087. Illustrated with suitably arresting colour plates by McKnight Kauffer. Bound in recent half blue calf, the original cloth boards laid down, with raised bands, gilt compartments, twin red labels, gilt titles and decoration to spine. Housed in a custom-made slipcase, bound in blue cloth. A fine example, inside and out. A handsome set of the works of the extraordinary Gothic savant. When considering his traumatic and brief life story, it is easy to see how his sensibility for the darker side of human nature arose - but this still fails to explain the sheer fecundity of his imagination, or the brilliance of his writing.

        Photo Album]: Baltimore Family Travels

      North Dakota 1946 - Oblong small quarto. Measuring 8.5" x 12". Black textured cloth over stiff paper boards with "Photo Album" stamped in silver on the front board. Contains 147 black and white or sepia toned silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 3" x 5", with captions. Very good album with chips, tears, and spotting on the front board with very good photographs with some edgewear.A photo album kept by the Chiodi family of Baltimore between 1934 and 1946. The photographs are not strictly in chronological order but show the family working, at their family home, and on vacation through the mid-1930s and early 1940s. The album begins with a trip to Jamestown, North Dakota, where they had lived before relocating to Baltimore, with photos of family friends on their front porch, children in their Sunday best, and workers on the Northern Pacific Railroad. Following this there are photos of a sheep ranch, a farm in Edmond, North Dakota, and Jamestown State Hospital. Friends and family are seen throughout the album in a variety of portraits, candids, and photo strips. They visited upstate New York and Niagara Falls, went camping and hiking, and enjoyed leisurely boating. As the war began the photos start showing more men in uniform including a Navy seaman and a man, Ernest Chiodi, in an Army uniform who is later mentioned in a newspaper clipping as dying in Germany in 1944. "A member of Company I 395th Infantry, 99th Division, 'Ernie' proved himself one of the highest caliber servicemen."A nice collection of family photos including travel and war related images.
