        Les Maladies des Plantes cultivées à Madagascar

      Paul Lechevalier, Paris 1946 - 545, (3), 1 portrait, 7 col plates, 230 text figs, 41 b/w plates. . HB. Bound in buckram, gilt title to spine. Book plate of the mycologist J. Nash-Wortham. Fine copy. Together with the original watercolours by Marc Rabarijaona for the seven colour plates in this work and the corresponding annotated printed proofs, with colour separations for some of the plates. All presented in a specially made Solander box. Gilbert Bouriquet (1903-1975) was a French agronomist, who in 1929 established the Laboratory of Plant Pathology in Tananarive (Antananarivo), 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

May the world have this knowledge and ponder on itÂ… When words are too weak and too poor to convey the destruction and extermination of Jewish life, may these pictures, found by accident on arrested S.

        KZ Mauthausen

      1946. First Edition . (HOLOCAUST) WIESENTHAL, Simon. KZ. Mauthausen. Linz and Wien: Ibis-Verlag, 1946. Quarto, original tan paper wrappers printed in red and black. $2000.First edition of Simon WiesenthalÂ’s rare first book, published only one year after his liberation from the brutality of Mauthausen death camp, one of the first published narratives of the Holocaust, with his text in German, a full-page duotone of Mauthausen, red-and-black front wrapper and 25 full-page duotones after striking original drawings and photo-montages by him, in original wrappers.This scarce first edition of KZ. Mauthausen, the first book by Simon Wiesenthal, is one of the first published narratives of the Holocaust. In this workÂ’s text and its 26 powerful duotone plates, including 25 after drawings and photo-montages by Wiesenthal, he records the horror of Mauthausen, which “had the highest death rate of all the concentration campsÂ… Of the 335,000 prisoners estimated to have passed through Mauthausen and its satellites, 122,767 were murdered” (Encyclopedia Judaica). Imprisoned in the Janowska camp, Wiesenthal was among those forced on a brutal death march in the face of the advancing Red Army, “with stops at the camps in Plasgow, Gross-Rosen and Buchenwald and ending at Mauthausen in Austria. There Wiesenthal, weighing 97 pounds, was liberated by Americans on May 5, 1945. Almost as soon as he could stand, he began collecting evidence on the atrocities for the War Crimes Section of the United States Army” (New York Times). To Wiesenthal, “the Holocaust was not only a Jewish tragedy, but a human oneÂ… he deserves to be remembered for his contribution to the culture of memory and the belief that remembering the dead is sanctifying life” (Segev, Simon Wiesenthal, 7-10). His lifelong work in tracking down Nazis famously led to the capture of Eichman and he also found the man “responsible for arresting Anne Frank and her family in their secret annex in Amsterdam, a feat of sleuthing that buttressed the credibility of AnneÂ’s diary in the face of neo-Nazi claims that it was fabricatedÂ… Governments, security agencies and lonely survivors turned their eyes to him when no one else had hard information or a sympathetic ear” (New York Times). Text in German. OCLC lists 35 copies worldwide, including the U.S. Holocaust Museum, Stanford, Princeton, Museum of Jewish Heritage, Brandeis, Ben Gurion University, Tel Aviv University and the National Library of Israel. A fine copy.

        Hiroshima.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1946 - Octavo. Original pale grey cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind lettered front cover, top edge brown. With the dust jacket. Jacket spine toned and a little rubbed at extremities, a few nicks and chips, spine of binding slightly rolled. A very good copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Dear Charlotte Chapman: Thanks for all the protection, and all the forwarding, and all the phoning. Put this away somewhere in the fervent hope that you've heard the last of it. Best, John Hersey Nov. 46". An excellent association copy: Charlotte Chapman was secretary to William Shawn, the much-loved and long serving editor of the New Yorker, who first published the story on 31 August 1946 (with a tipped-in note from her confirming the provenance and explaining that "Often Mr Hersey and Mr Shawn would be closeted behind a closed doors for hours at a time, while I, just outside the door, would see that nobody disturbed them"). John Hersey's famous account of the experiences of six Hiroshima atomic bomb survivors "was the first significant account in English of the devastation of Hiroshima; it remains an enormously influential book, the account that introduces Hiroshima to most Western readers" (Richard M. Minear ed., Hiroshima: Three Witnesses, 1990, p. 7). Hersey (1914–1993) was one of the first proponents of New Journalism, which blends factual reporting with a novelistic prose style. He served as a war correspondent for Time and Life during World War II and became interested in the atomic bombings while covering the reconstruction of Japan. It's initial publication in the New Yorker is the only time that the magazine has devoted an entire issue to a single story. It remains one of the twentieth-century's most significant pieces of journalism. Copies presented by the author so close to the date of publication are decidedly scarce.

        Contact Mercury

      1946. First Edition . Signed. (BERG, Morris “Moe”) NASON, Leonard H. Contact Mercury. Garden City: Doubleday, 1946. Octavo, original brown cloth. $1500.First edition of this espionage novel, the copy belonging to major league baseball player and O.S.S. officer Morris “Moe” Berg, with his ownership stamps and pencil markings, also signed by his sister.NasonÂ’s own World War II service in the Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S., forerunner of the CIA) informs this thriller about “a fiendish and almost successful plot against the Allies.” “If what you have read about the secret of the atomic bomb has not already scared the pants off you,” commented a contemporary New York Times review, “this novel will go a long way toward completing the job.” This bookÂ’s previous owner, Morris “Moe” Berg, was a Major League Baseball player—and, according to Casey Stengel, “the strangest man” in the game. “In his 15 major league seasons, in which he played just 662 games, Berg was a lifetime .243 hitter. He started out as a slick-fielding utility infielder before the Chicago White Sox in 1927 moved him to catcher, where he then found his niche as a substitute backstop, filling that role until he retired in 1939Â… But he was a brilliant scholar, picking up degrees from Princeton and Columbia Law School and studying philosophy at the Sorbonne. His linguistic skills inspired this observation by a teammate: ‘He can speak seven languages, but he canÂ’t hit in any of them.” In 1943, Berg became an O.S.S. officer; he would carry out one of its “more ambitious endeavors—a plot to possibly assassinate Werner Heisenberg, the head of Nazi GermanyÂ’s atom-bomb projectÂ… BergÂ’s assessment of the situation was that Germany was not close to having a nuclear bomb, and there was never an attempt to kill Heisenberg” (ESPN). Without original dust jacket. BergÂ’s ownership stamp appears on the front and rear pastedowns and on the half title. In addition, Berg heavily marked in pencil the first third of the text; pages 16 (“lingo ‘Krauts”) and 24 (“Germans = Ger-ries”) bear marginalia in his hand. BergÂ’s sister Ethel, with whom he lived for the last eight years of his life, signed the book twice on the front free endpaper, recto and verso. Another ownerÂ’s stamps appear beneath BergÂ’s on the front pastedown.Front paper hinge split, binding sound. Light rubbing to spine and extremities, light soiling to cloth. A very good copy with exceptionally intriguing provenance.
