        Come, Tell Me How You Live (Archaeologists in Syria). An engaging record of an archaeological expedition to the Near East before the war (WWII).

      Dodd, Mead, New York 1946 - Handsomely bound in finely woven blue cloth stamped brightly in gilt on the spine. Light rubbing to the extremities; corners lightly bumped and tiny nibbles at the bottom center of the of the fore-edges. With numerous photos of Syrian life decorating the endpapers. Clean and tight throughout. In an original dust jacket, heavily worn and chipped and separated along the front fold. The price of $3.00 is at the top of the front inside flap. Several large pieces missing at the top of the spine ends and along the top of the front panel edge, not affecting any of the title lettering. Small chips at the bottom of the spine ends and the corners. Light soiling to the rear panel. Unaccountably scarce, especially in an original jacket. Christie writes as the memoir opens: "This book is an answer. It is the answer to a question that is asked me very often. ‘So you dig in Syria, do you? Do tell me all about it. How do you live? In a tent?’ etc, etc," adding a little later: "This is not a profound book It is, in fact, small beer – a very little book, full of everyday doings and happenings." Its opening pages see her describing her travails attempting to find a suitable outfit for her travels: "‘Of course, Modom, we are not being asked for that kind of thing just now! We have some very charming little suits here - OS [outsize] in the darker colours.’ Oh, loathsome OS! How humiliating to be OS! How even more humiliating to be recognised at once as OS!" writes Christie, cheerily. More than 70 years ago, Christie recorded her arrival at Palmyra, her usually light tone giving way to one of genuine emotion. "After seven hours of heat and monotony and a lonely world – Palmyra! That, I think, is the charm of Palmyra – its slender creamy beauty rising up fantastically in the middle of hot sand," she writes. "It is lovely and fantastic and unbelievable, with all the theatrical implausibility of a dream. Courts and temples and ruined columns I have never been able to decide what I really think of Palmyra. It has always for me the dreamlike quality of that first vision. My aching head and eyes made it more than ever seem a feverish delusion! It isn’t - it can’t be – real." Going to the "holy shrine of Sheikh Adi situated in the Kurdish hills near Mosul", described last year as "hell on earth" in a Guardian piece, she writes that "there can be, I think, no spot in the world so beautiful or so peaceful". "You wind up far into the hills through oak trees and pomegranates, following a mountain stream. The air is fresh and clear and pure," records the novelist. "And then, suddenly, you come to the white spires of the shrine. All is calm and gentle and peaceful there. There are trees, a courtyard, running water. Gentle-faced custodians bring you refreshments and you sit in perfect peace, sipping tea." (The Guardian) First Edition with matching dates of 1946 on the title and copyright pages.

        Animal Farm

      118 pages. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 1/4") bound in black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. First American edition.Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950), known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic. His work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and commitment to democratic socialism. Commonly ranked as one of the most influential English writers of the 20th century, and as one of the most important chroniclers of English culture of his generation, Orwell wrote literary criticism, poetry, fiction, and polemical journalism. He is best known for the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) and the allegorical novella Animal Farm (1945). His book Homage to Catalonia (1938), an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, is widely acclaimed, as are his numerous essays on politics, literature, language, and culture. In 2008, The Times ranked him second on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". Orwell's work continues to influence popular and political culture, and the term Orwellian — descriptive of totalitarian or authoritarian social practices — has entered the language together with several of his neologisms, including cold war, Big Brother, thought police, Room 101, doublethink, and thought crime.Animal Farm is an allegorical and dystopian novel, published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalin era in the Soviet Union. Orwell, a democratic socialist, was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow-directed Stalinism, an attitude that was critically shaped by his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. The Soviet Union, he believed, had become a brutal dictatorship, built upon a cult of personality and enforced by a reign of terror. In a letter to Yvonne Davet, Orwell described Animal Farm as a satirical tale against Stalin "un conte satirique contre Staline", and in his essay "Why I Write" (1946), he wrote that Animal Farm was the first book in which he had tried, with full consciousness of what he was doing, "to fuse political purpose and artistic purpose into one whole". The original title was Animal Farm: A Fairy Story, though the subtitle was dropped by U.S. publishers for its 1946 publication and subsequently all but one of the translations during Orwell's lifetime omitted it. Other variations in the title include: A Satire and A Contemporary Satire. Orwell suggested the title Union des républiques socialistes animales for the French translation, which recalled the French name of the Soviet Union, Union des républiques socialistes soviétiques, and which abbreviates to URSA, the Latin for "bear", a symbol of Russia. Orwell wrote the book from November 1943 – February 1944, when the wartime alliance with the Soviet Union was at its height and Stalin was regarded highly by the British people and intelligentsia, a circumstance that Orwell hated. It was initially rejected by a number of British and American publishers, including one of Orwell's own, Victor Gollancz. Its publication was thus delayed, though it became a great commercial success when it did finally appear partly because the Cold War so quickly followed World War II. Time magazine chose the book as one of the 100 best English-language novels (1923 to 2005);[8] it also featured at number 31 on the Modern Library List of Best 20th-Century Novels. It won a Retrospective Hugo Award in 1996, and is also included in the Great Books of the Western World selection.Condition:Spine ends and points rubbed. In a price clipped jacket with light edge wear with a few small closed edge tears else a very good copy in like jacket.

        Nuremberg Trials: Allied Opening and Closing Speeches

      1946. (WORLD WAR II) (NUREMBERG TRIALS). Nuremberg Trials: Opening Speech, Soviet Union; Closing Speech, Britain; Closing Speeches United States, France and Soviet Union. Nuremberg: no publisher, August 1946. Three volumes. Folio (8-1/2 by 13 inches), original half blue linen, manuscript title labels affixed to front covers, mimeographed typescripts. $6500.Dramatic collection of opening speeches and closing arguments made by the Allied prosecutorial teams during the 1946 Nuremberg Trials, including the Opening Statement of the USSR, the final speech by the British prosecutor against Nazi Organizations, the closing statement by the United States against the German General Staff and High Command, the Final Argument for the United States by Thomas Dodd, and final statements against Nazi organizations by France and the USSR. From the working library of Eric Bourne, head of the Reuters team covering the trials, with his owner signatures and annotations in shorthand, almost certainly used by him and his team to file stories and convey the drama and consequences of the Nuremberg Trials to the world.At the Nuremberg Trials the prosecution entered indictments against 24 major war criminals and six criminal organizations: the leadership of the Nazi party, the Schutzstaffel (SS) and Sicherheitsdienst (SD), the Gestapo, the Sturmabteilung (SA) and the ""General Staff and High Command,"" comprising several categories of senior military officers. Volume I records the Opening Statement of the USSR Chief of Counsel, Lieutenant General R.A. Rudenko, ""Crimes Against Peace"" by Deputy USSR Chief of Counsel, Colonel W.V. Pokrovsky, and ""Aggression Against the USSR"" by M.D. Zorya. Volume II records the Final Speech by the British prosecutor Maxwell Fyfe, against Nazi Organizations and the Final Argument for the United States of America by Thomas J. Dodd. Volume III records the Closing Statement for the USA by Telford Taylor, et al., against the General Staff and High Command and final statement on the Organizations by R.A. Rudenko on behalf of the USSR and the final statement on the Organizations by Auguste Champetier de Ribes on behalf of France. The closing arguments by the prosecutors at the Trial concluded on August 20, 1946, and the following day the defendants were given a chance to make final statements before the Tribunal. All 21 defendants elected to address the Court. The Tribunal was adjourned for one month while the Judges considered their verdicts. Owner signature of journalist Eric Bourne, head of the Reuters team covering the Nuremberg Trials, to five of the part titles, together with sporadic shorthand notes by Bourne in pen or pencil, plus occasional pencil marks, underlining, and word corrections. It is not clear from Bourne's notes in these three volumes when he made them, or what the shorthand says, though presumably they were all made around the time of the trials and to aid him and his team in filing stories. Bourne later recorded that when Rudolph Hess was brought in for sentencing, he produced a ""torrent of gabbled words""—having earlier declined to accept the Court's jurisdiction. Bourne recalled getting the entire rant down in shorthand and sending the story to Reuters with ample direct quotes, skipping the other reporters. ""Once sure his story was through, he shared his notes with the rest"" (Guardian, March 18, 1999).The first volume is slightly browned and dampstained at front, affecting covers and first few leaves, with frayed boards; the other two volumes are lightly rubbed only. A very good, scarce, and important contemporary record of major speeches and arguments from the Nuremberg Trials.

        Les Maladies des Plantes cultivées à Madagascar

He was awarded Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, du mérite, des Palmes académiques. The colour illustratons, of which the original watercolours are included here, are by Marc Rabarijaona, and the Avertissement (Foreword) thanks, '. Notre dévoué collaborateur Marc Rabarijaona pour la minutie avec laquelle il a reproduit nos dessins et exécuté les aquarelles qui illustrent cet ouvrage'. Marc Rabarijaona was an illustrator at the Laboratoire de phytopathologie de l'Institut Pasteur de Madagascar, and afterwards at l'Institut de Botanique appliquée de Tsimbazaza.A publisher's note states that the type setting of this work was completed in 1939, when the author corrected the proofs, but on the outbreak of war he was sent to Madagascar, where he remained for some years away from France. The book therefore was not printed until 1946. Title page is dated 1946, but the colophon at the rear states 'Achevé d'imprimer le 17 Avril 1947'. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Past All Dishonor

      1946. CAIN, James M. Past All Dishonor. H.N. Swanson, [circa 1946]. Quarto, original mimeographed typescript measures 8-1/2 by 11 inches, bound with brads, original black wrappers, 185 leaves with typescript on recto only (paginated at 183), paper label affixed to front wrapper. $1650.Advance mimeographed typewritten draft of CainÂ’s Civil War crime novel, a favorite of CainÂ’s for its use of “the old switcheroo,” in manuscript format for submission to Hollywood studios, preceding the 1946 publication of his novel and containing parts changed in the final published edition.Submitted by James M. CainÂ’s agents at H.N. Swanson to Hollywood studios at the height of his career, this early manuscript of Past All Dishonor contains elements altered in the final published novel. Though it would ultimately be one of the few Cain novels not filmed, the novel, published in 1946, remained one of the writerÂ’s favorite works, expressing a theme that defined his art—the excitement of chasing a dream and the ruin hidden in its capture. Years later Cain recalled the novel with particular pride, particularly its use of “the old switcheroo” that was perfected in this story of Civil War deserter, a prostitute and a train robbery. “This was a very nice situation,” he noted, “and I was able to top it, and thatÂ’s always what you try to doÂ… You pull it, you switch it, you top it” (Paris Review). H.N. Swanson, CainÂ’s literary agency, also represented writers such as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Raymond Chandler. See Hubin, 62. Interior fine; several tiny closed tears to original fragile wrappers in near-fine condition. A unique and memorable piece of literary and film history.

        Case No. 5 The United States of America against Friedrich Flick, Otto Steinbrinck, Odilo Burkart, Konrad Kaletsch, Bernhard Weiss, and Hermann Terberger Defendants

      Nuremberg: 1946-1947. Hardcover. Very Good. olio, 57 volumes, containing thousands of pages of the mimeographed transcript of the trial, in English, on rectos only. Photostats, many folding, of original Nazi documents, and photographs of Flick's facilities, utilized in the trial laid in to several volumes, these transcripts were the daily translated transcripts produced each day for the use of the military tribunal, there are a variety of paper stocks employed. The present set was likely the personal set of presiding judge Charles B. Sears. Several volumes bear groupings of pages marked "Judge Sears." There are numerous manuscript notes, and commentary throughout the text, presumably in the hand of Judge Sears. Bound in later black buckram, ex-library, call numbers on spines, rubberstamps, else in very good condition. The volumes contain the indictment, testimony, documents, closing statements and briefs, defense motions and final pleas of each defendant. With pamphlet (see image above), outlining the case, names of the defendants, prosecution and defense teams, the judges, and the indictment of the accused, bound in to front of first volume. The Flick trial and the evidence gathered for its prosecution is important for establishing the insidious, symbiotic relationship and complicity of German business interests and the Nazi Party. Without the active and willing participation of Flick and others Hitler would never have come to power and been able to sustain his hold over Germany and the lands he conquered. People like Flick made it happen. Flick was complicit in the sickening "economics of death" constructed by Wilhelm Keppler and Heinrich Himmler, involving the use of slave labor as a part and parcel of "the final solution," from which Flick profited enormously during the Nazi years. The United States of America vs. Friedrich Flick, et al, was the fifth of twelve Nazi war crimes trials held by United States authorities in their occupation zone in Germany after World War II. It was the first of three trials of leading industrialists of Nazi Germany; the two others were the IG Farben Trial and the Krupp Trial. These trials were all held before American military tribunals. The Flick trial was one of the 12 Subsequent Nuremberg Trials of the military, political, and economical leadership of Nazi Germany, held after the Nuremberg Trials, the Trial of the Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal, the most well-known trials which tried 22 of the most important captured Nazis. Like the other trials, the Flick trial took place at the Palace of Justice. The defendants in this case were Friedrich Flick and five other high-ranking directors of Flick's group of companies, Flick Kommanditgesellschaft, or Flick AG. The charges centered on various war crimes, slave labor, plunder, "aryanization" of the property of Jews and others, but Flick and the most senior director, Otto Steinbrinck, were also charged for their membership in the "Circle of Friends of Himmler." The circle was a group of influential German industrialists and bankers - founded early in 1932 at Hitler's suggestion by his economic advisor Wilhelm Keppler and taken over by Himmler in 1935 - members of the circle contributed a million Reichsmark annually to finance the activities and policies of the SS. The money was donated to a "Special Account S" in favor of Heinrich Himmler. Flick himself contributed 100,000 Reichsmark to this fund annually. The Circle participated in effecting Hitler's rise to power and made plans for the reorganization of the German economy in accordance with Hitler's plans. Thereafter the Circle met regularly, up to and including 1945, with Himmler, Keppler, and other high government officials, and was a means of maintaining close cooperation between the largest business and industrial enterprises on the one hand, and the German Government, Nazi Party, and the SS on the other. The judges in this case, heard before Military Tribunal IV, were Charles B. Sears (pr
