        Stanley Reed signs excerpts from the historic desegregation case Morgan vs. Virginia

      no place: , [1946]. no place, [1946]. 4to. "Typed document signed ""Stanley Reed"", 6pp, 4to, being an excerpt of the Court's opinion of Morgan vs. Virginia. In part: ""...Irene Morgan, a Negro passenger on a bus operating between Virginia and Maryland, refused to change her seat upon the order of the bus driver, who by Virginia statute was under a duty to see that segregation was maintained...Mr. Justice Reed deliverd the opinion of the Court...this statute so burdens interstate commerce...the requirements of national uniformity as to be invalid....As no state law can reach beyond its border...the need for national uniformity in the regulations for interstate travel...Reversed."" This case was one of the first to end lawful segregation. Upon Morgan's conviction and an affimation by the Virginia Supreme Court, she appealed to the United States Supreme Court. Thurgood Marshall, who was Morgan's lawyer, argued that since the bus was traveling between Virginia and Maryland and Maryland did not have segregation, Morgan was not required to change her seat. The court decided in favor of Morgan, concluding that uniform laws must exist for interstate commerce and effectively outlawed segregation on interstate passenger carriers. The case foreshadowed the Montgomery Bus Boycott and Brown vs. Board of Education, where Marshall argued before the Supreme Court that segregation was unconstitutional. Very fine."

        Seamus Heaney - photographed for his 70th birthday at his Dublin Home.

      Extra Large Original Photograph on archival paper. 31 cm x 43 cm (Image only) / Framed 62,5 cm x 73 cm. From the private library of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan below the image. Unusual, large print of this stunning and intimate photograph of Irelands beloved poet. Beautifully framed. 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.

        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.
