        SEPTEMVRIJCETA: POEMA ZA DECA I JUNOŠI / SEPTEMBER: FEAST FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

      Sofia: Septembrijce, May . 1946 - 8°, 54 pp. with illustrations within text, [1], original illustrated blue wrappers (Very good, margins hardly are-toned, cover slightly dusty with scuffed corners). A rare children's poetry book with a strong WWII, Communist, pro-Soviet Union and Georgi Dimitrov propaganda, was written by a famous Bulgarian writer Assen Bossev (Asen Bosev, 1913-1987). The September in the title refers to September 1944, when Bulgaria during WWII left the Axis forces, and joined the Allies and the Soviet Union. In 1946, when this book was published, the Bulgarian Communist leader Georgi Dimitrov, and the president of Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito, formed an alliance, which fell apart two years later in 1948, when Yugoslavia also broke contact with the rest of the Communist Eastern Bloc countries. We could only trace one example in the libraries worldwide (National Library in Sofia).

        Wilfred Rabbit and Augustus Fox [with] the original artwork

      Slim 4to. London: Harrap, 1946. Slim 4to, [30]pp. printed in color with illustrations on every page and 7 full-page illustrations within the pagination. Original color-printed boards, blue cloth backstrip, a little darkened around the edges. The original artwork, present in two versions (see below). First edition of the book accompanied by a set of all the original watercolors for the book with the text written out calligraphically, and a second set of some 22 watercolors with the text in printed format (as in the final version) -- this latter probably being an early maquette or mock-up for the final version. The first set is likely to be the way Thornhill originally envisioned the book being printed but for whatever reason (perhaps cost) the publisher decided to set the text in type-- hence the mock-up and second set of watercolors. Other books by Thornhill include Puffer, Muffer and Pip-Pip (1943), Wilmot Lamb and his Friends (1946), Bosky Goldfish (1948), The Blue Elephant (1948), and The Winkle Society (1952). Oddly absent from institutions -- only four copies listed on OCLC, none in the US.

        DOS FANTASÍAS MEMORABLES.

      Oportet & Haereses (Imprenta López),, Buenos Aires 1946 - 14x22.8. 34pp. 1h. Tirada de 300 ejemplares numerados. Este libro es un bellísimo ejemplo de la fantasía bibliográfica; no solamente es ficticio el autor, también lo es el crítico citado en la faja publicitaria 'Gervasio Montenegro' quien recomienda el libro por su "más atrayente y engañosa de las vulgaridades." e incluso la editorial. Yo pensé que Oportet & Haereses era solamente un sencillo juego de palabras - Oporto y Jerez - que encaja con el 'Domecq' del autor, pero no, hay más: la cita completa "Nam oportet et haereses esse" (pues conviene que haya herejes) es de la primera carta de San Pablo a los corintios. Con Borges hay fondo, trasfondo y más. Muy buen ejemplar de este raro libro. Holandesa tela editorial; conserva la faja publicitaria. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dipilogicheskaia azbuka [The DP-logical alphabet]

      self-published, Munich 1946 - Small octavo (14.5 × 10 cm). Original staple-stitched self-wrappers; 14 pp. Front wrapper reattached with tape; small owner signature; else still about very good. The first book published by Irina Saburova (pseudonym of Irina Kutitonskaia, 1907-1979) in post-war Germany, as a refugee waiting to resettle to North America. In her "alphabet book" about life as a Displaced Person (DP), Saburova lent expression to the hopelessness and frustration felt by many compatriots with keen sardonic wit: "Capital N, as in 'no documents'. None. One of the main features of the DP. And a small one for niks fershteen, a laconic formula for explaining oneself to foreigners, should they express surprise that the DPs travel without tickets, cross train tracks, catch fish in a stranger's pond, and generally march boldly through a foreign country" (9). Her book also displeased many DPs, who feared that Saburova's frank treatment of their precarious situation, as well as her satirical depiction of the DPs themselves, would displease the Allied powers in Germany. Published without censorship approval, as was generally required of DP publications, and thus semi-illegally.KVK, OCLC show only two copies, at Indiana and Notre Dame. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Original b/w photograph on archival paper. Different formats. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Most of them titled by John Minihan verso. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Most of the photographs in this collection unframed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

(Wikipedia) Thomas Kennerly "Tom" Wolfe, Jr. (born March 2, 1931) is an American author and journalist, best known for his association and influence over the New Journalism literary movement in which literary techniques are used in objective even-handed journalism. Beginning his career as a reporter, he soon became one of the most culturally significant figures of the 1960s after the publication of books such as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (a highly experimental account of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters) and two collections of articles and essays, Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers and The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. His first novel, The Bonfire of the Vanities, released in 1987, was met with critical acclaim and was a great commercial success. He is also known, in recent years, for his spats and public disputes with other writers, including John Updike, Norman Mailer, and John Irving. (Wikipedia)
