        There Shall Be Wings: Title Page for Airmails of the World

      Kasimir Bileski, Winnepeg, Canada 1947 - Herman Jaffe, New York (Printer); Copyright 1947, stamped verso "First Edition"; Color process art print, signed in ink lower right; 8 x 6.5 inches, image; 11.5 x 10 inches, overall Aviation themed print with a central illustration of Leonardo Da Vinci holds a drawing of a Renaissance flying machine labeled "there shall be wings." Above him is a 1940s airplane. The elaborate decorative border contains 12 illustrations from the history of aviation: balloons, zeppelins, airplanes and a helicopter. In the top border is a winged hourglass above a propeller, in the bottom border, a world globe flanked by wings. Both are surmounted by a star. This illustration was one of 60 commissioned in 1945 by Canadian publisher Kasimir Bileski for an international stamp album. Szyk only completed 10 of these images prior to his death in 1951. The offered example is a separately issued print signed by Szyk in ink. Arthur Szyk (pronounced ¿shick¿) was a widely admired illustrator and political caricaturist, known for his illuminated manuscript style based on 16th-century miniatures as well as for his profound humanism, devoted to the ideals of democracy and Judaism.  A well-traveled man, he began studying art at the age of 15, at the Académie Julian in Paris, continued his studies in Krakow in 1913, and visited a community of artists who were Polish Jews living in Palestine the following year.  After a stint in the Polish army, he moved with his wife and family to Paris in 1921, where he remained for many years and illustrated several books in French, many on Biblical or Jewish themes, worked on major commissions from the French government and the League of Nations, and exhibited his work in one-person shows.  In 1937, he relocated to London, where he published his Haggadah in 1940, a project he had begun in the 1920s, which was dedicated to King George IV. When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Szyk began producing anti-fascist satirical works, which he toured in North America at the suggestion of the Polish and British governments to raise awareness of the growing threat of Nazism.  In the Forties, he emigrated to the United States and became a successful illustrator in his adopted country, doing covers for magazines such as Time, Esquire and Collier¿s and advertisements for U.S. Steel and Coca Cola, as well as continuing to produced illuminated books. He worked tirelessly for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.  He became an American citizen in 1948, but was investigated in 1951 by the House Un-American Activities Committee for potential Communist activities.  Although prominent citizens asserted that this was specious, the stress took its toll, and he died of a heart attack later that year.  The Arthur Szyk Society was established in California in 1991 to document and promote his legacy as an artist and champion of democratic and Jewish values Condition: Generally very good with the usual overall light toning, handling and wear.

Light toning and spotting to the text block which has encroached on to the page edges in places. Light offsetting and spotting to the prelims. Free from inscriptions. The fragile thin paper WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. It bears the correct price of 12s 6d. net. The rear lower flap fold is clipped. Some toning to the spine with some loss at the spine ends. Some tape to the spine ends on the verso which shows through to the front. A few age related markings but the wrapper presents well in the removable Brodart archival cover. A collection of essays to act as a memorial of friendship between the poet and author Charles Williams (who had died in 1945). The various contributors include C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers and J.R.R.Tolkien. Williams had been a close friend of Tolkien and Lewis. He had been part of Lewis' literary society, 'The Inklings Group'. Williams published prose and poetry and was the author of the acclaimed fantasy title 'The Place Of The Lion' which C.S. Lewis had greatly admired. A very scarce title more-so with the original wrapper.

        Pierre A Feu: Les Miroirs Profonds

      Paris: Maeght Editeur, 1947. Original wraps. Very Good +. Henri Matisse. The 1947 1st edition, one of 950 copies issued (this one designated "Number H.C." {"Hors Commerce" or "outside the trade; not for sale through regular commercial channels"}). FURTHERMORE, THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED BY THE BOOK'S EDITOR, MADAME ROSEMOND RILEY at the foot of the "Justification du Tirage". This collection more than anything celebrates the illustrations of Henri Matisse and includes 1 original color lithograph (constituting the wrappers), 1 lithographed portrait, 1 wood engraving and 14 heliogravures, all of which showcase Matisse's virtuosity and work nicely to complement the text. Octavo, solid and VG+ to Near Fine. The wrappers are harmlessly bound upside down (making this a unique copy?) and show just the slightest touch of creasing and light soiling. Literary contributions by Louis Aragon, Paul Eluard, Luc Decaunes, Rene Lacote, Jacques Kober, Edouard Jaguer, Rene Char, etc. A very sharp, impressive copy.

        Important Typed Letter Signed about the book "End of Man

      New York, 1947. unbound. very good. 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, New York City, April 20, 1947, to Professor William Seward, concerning the book "End of Man," in part: "I am glad to hear that you think so well of END OF MAN. Perhaps you have not heard, but the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice has taken action against the novel on charges of obscenity, and there was a hearing in Court on April 14. We will get a decision from the Magistrate on May 2nd...I believe the best way we can handle the matter of an inscribed copy of the novel would be this. Next time I am down at Vanguard Press, I will inscribe one to you, and have them send one down to you COD as customary. If this is not all right with you, then let me know. It is best for Vanguard to send it, because first I do not have any copies, except one, and second, I do not have any means of wrapping and sending it, because first I do not have any copies, except one, and second, I do not have any means of wrapping and sending it. But, I will be glad to have Vanguard send it on to you if you like..." Note: When Willingham wrote this letter, he was suffering severe economic difficulties, brought on by the lawsuit and injunction against the sale and distribution of his book. The truth was that he could neither afford the cost of postage and insurance nor the cost of printing personal stationery for his correspondence. Faint paperclip stain at the top; narrow stain along the right edge; still in very good condition. 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, New York City, April 20, 1947, to Professor William Seward, concerning the book "End of Man," in part: "I am glad to hear that you think so well of END OF MAN.

        Bookjackets by Alvin Lustig for New Directions Books

      New York: The Gotham Book Mart Press, 1947. 7½ x 6¼ inches. Title and two leaves text: Statements by Laughlin and Lustig. 18 color plates of New Directions jackets designed by Lustig (of 20? see below). Original comb binding, printed wrappers. Lower third of each sheet with pale dampstain and minor associated cockling. A SCARCE PROMOTIONAL BROCHURE FROM NEW DIRECTIONS. Laughlin states: "It is obvious that the series of jacket designs which Alvin Lustig has made for my New Classics books is a constant pleasure to the eye. There is nothing in the book world today which compares with them for color, for variety, for life, for appeal to the intelligence. Again and again I find myself lining the books up to gloat at them. What is quite as important: these jackets have enormously increased the sale of the New Classics Series. About eight books were in print before Lustig came into the picture. They were jacketted in a very conservative, 'booky', way. Sales were pretty dreary. Then we brightened the books up with the Lustig covers. Immediately they began to move..." Sales in fact increased by three hundred percent. Lustig notes that he conceived of "a series of symbols that could quickly summarize the spirit of each book" in order to "hold the roving eye of the potential buyer." "The jackets were also always planned for maximum visual effectiveness when displayed together, as well as when shown singly against the confused background of the average book store. As the publisher's remarks testify, the primary aim of reaching the audience was achieved. I hope too that the secondary aim, that of projecting a series of 'public' symbols of higher than usual standards, was also achieved." Following the text are eighteen front panel jacket designs from the series: Rimbaud's A Season in Hell and Illuminations; Stein's Three Lives; Forster's The Longest Journey and A Room with a View; James' The Spoils of Poynton; Flaubert's Three Tales; Waugh's A Handful of Dust; Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby; Kafka's Amerika; Barnes' Nightwood; Patchen's Selected Poems; Joyce's Exiles; Fournier's The Wanderer; Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil; Lawrence's The Man Who Died and Selected Poems; and Boyle's Monday Night. Missing from the sequence are nos. 1 and 15 in the series. This ephemeral promotional pamphlet was sent to book stores to solicit orders, and is a scarce survival in any condition.
