      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1947. 2 volumes. First Edition and a FINE ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY ROBERT FROST, dated 1950. 8vo, publisher’s original light blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spine. In the original dustjacket. [6], 23, [1 blank] pp. A very fresh and well preserved copy, the blue cloth excellent but for trivial rubbing at the extremities, quite handsome with only some expected age mellowing and a small chip at tip of the lightly faded jacket spine panel. A few unobtrusive spots on three early leaves likely caused by something once laid in. FIRST EDITION AND A FINE AND PLEASING SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY, inscribed by Frost to Virginia Proctor, secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. Though Frost tenure at Harvard was short, his friendship with Mrs. Proctor lasted well beyond his years in Cambridge. It was President Conant who first cited Frost as "The Poet of New England" when Frost was given an honorary degree of Litt.D. in 1937. In 1938 Frost resigned from Amherst and was elected to Harvard's Board of Overseers and that year also saw him placed in the English department at the university. Conant reappointed Frost for the years 1939 through 1942. Though Frost's formal ties with Harvard would end in that year, his association with Virginia Proctor would continue for years following. The inscription on this 1947 publication reads, "To Virginia / From R. F. Frost / 1950" This is the FIRST EDITION of Robert Frost’s experiment in blank verse play in which Biblical characters in modern settings discuss ethics and man’s relation to God. “Mr. Frost, who has never been impressed by superficial orthodoxies, rolls up his poetic sleeves and discusses the possibility of reconciling justice with mercy in a sharp wit, a firm logic, and a strong faith in God and man. Here is proof again, and shining proof, of his genius.”- Publisher

        Trial of the Major War Criminals

      October 1946, 1947 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A fascinating collection of transcripts and records from the Nuremberg war criminal trials of 1945-46. Volume I contains pre-trial documents together with the Tribunal's judgment and sentence of the defendants. Volumes II-XXII deal with the proceedings of the trials, and contain transcripts in English, whilst volumes XXV onwards contain documents admitted in evidence for the trial. Containing volumes:1-171921-2225-262832-3537-39With a folding diagram of the organisation of the German police to volume XXXVIII, and photographic illustrations in the text of the evidence volumes. The Nuremberg trials were held by the Allied forces after World War II, most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, and economic leadership of Nazi Germany. The trials were held in the city of Nuremberg, Germany. The first, and best known of these trials, described as the greatest trial in history by Norman Birkett, one of the British judges who presided over it, was the trial of the major war criminals before the International Military Tribunal (IMT). Held between 20 November 1945 and 1 October 1946, the Tribunal was given the task of trying 23 of the most important political and military leaders of the Third Reich, though one of the defendants, Martin Bormann, was tried in absentia, while another, Robert Ley, committed suicide within a week of the trial's commencement. Not included were Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Joseph Goebbels, all of whom had committed suicide several months before the indictment was signed. Defendants included Hermann Goring, Rudolf Hess, Dr Hjalmar Schacht, Albert Speer and twenty other prominent members of the Nazi regime. Thirty volumes of forty-two only. Condition: In blue cloth bindings. Externally, quite smart, though with some sunning and a few marks. Light bumping to the extremities also, and some slight wear to the extremities of five volumes. . Seven hinges are strained, with two failed. Ink signature to front board of one volume. Slight dampstaining to two volumes. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean, though with some marginal browning to the pages of thirteen volumes. Ink inscription to front pastedown of eight volumes, with institutional ink stamps to fifteen volumes and an institutional label to front pastedown of one volume. Overall: VERY GOOD..

      [Munich?] : Prometheus, 1947. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 90 pages. 21 cm. First Edition. In Ukrainian. Translated by Igor Shevchenko under the pseudonym John Chernyatynskyy. Includes a black and white portrait of George Orwell. In the introduction for this edition, Orwell explains his experiences during the Spanish Civil war and his connection to what he describes as "the negative impact of Soviet myth in Western socialist movement." Shevchenko first read the book in English while living in a displaced persons camp. He chose to publish it under the title 'Kolghosp Tvaryn' which directly referenced collectivized farms instead of choosing the more direct translation of 'Ferma Tvaryn.' "Shevchenko wrote to Orwell in London, and, working with him by letter, published Animal Farm in Ukrainian. In March 1947, Shevchenko printed around 5, 000 copies to distribute among the Ukrainian refugees in the displaced persons camps of postwar Germany and Austria. But only 2, 000 books were given out; U. S. Soldiers, suspecting the books of being anti-Stalin propaganda, confiscated the rest and handed them over to Soviet authorities to be destroyed." (Chalupa, "Orwell and the Refugees.") Subjects: English fiction -- 20th century -- Translations into Ukrainian. OCLC lists one copy worldwide. (British National Library) Some age toning and rubbing. Wrappers detached with tear along backstrip. Institutional stamp (M. Y. H. Youth of CDWU. ) on half-title page. Number stamped on half-title and cover. Numbered label and hand written number on cover near top edge. Good condition. (UKR-1-24c)

        La difficulté d'être

      Paul Morihien, 1947. - Paul Morihien, Paris 1947, 11,5x17cm, broché sous chemise - étui. - Prima edizione, una copia del servizio stampa. autografo prezioso firmato da Jean Cocteau a Jean - Paul Sartre: "... il suo amico con tutto il cuore ..." Senza essere della stessa generazione e nonostante tutto ciò che li potrebbe opporsi, Jean Cocteau e Jean - Paul Sartre frequentati regolarmente alla fine del 1940 e l'inizio del 1950; la morte del filosofo Jean Marais si ricorderà chiamate regolari telefonici, ma anche infinite cene e meraviglioso discussione. Dopoguerra, Cocteau sembrava davvero avere il cuore a dimenticare alcuni dei suoi compromessi occupazione e gli amici per le posizioni impegnato come Sartre potrebbe opportunamente contribuire. Cocteau è stato anche un curioso che non poteva non essere interessato al sorgere di una personalità complessa. Così i due uomini lavoravano insieme con il riconoscimento di Jean Genet e hanno pubblicato nel mese di luglio 1948 a combattere una lettera aperta al Presidente della Repubblica, Vincent Auriol, per la scarcerazione del poeta - hooligan . Pochi anni dopo, Sartre Cocteau contribuiscono a creare un Comitato di sostegno Henri Martin, avversario comunista nella guerra in Indocina condannato a 5 anni di reclusione per aver distribuito volantini. Cocteau partecipano anche alla messa in scena di Dirty Hands, il gioco di Sartre ha debuttato nel 1948 al Théâtre Antoine. Offrendo il papa dell'esistenzialismo una copia autografata della difficoltà di essere dandy infaticabile lo sottopose una delle sue opere più intime. Nel libro, ricorda Sartre, notando anche con l'impegno politico, "sollevò una grande lepre." Raro esempio di legami tra le due grandi figure della scena letteraria e intellettuale del XX secolo. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Jean Cocteau à Jean - Paul Sartre : « son ami de tout cœur ». Sans être de la même génération et en dépit de tout ce qui pouvait les opposer, Jean Cocteau et Jean - Paul Sartre se fréquentèrent à la fin des années 1940 et au début des années 1950 ; à la mort du philosophe, Jean Marais évoquera des coups de fil réguliers mais aussi des dîners aux interminables et merveilleuses discussions. C'est ainsi que les deux hommes œuvrèrent de concert à la reconnaissance de Jean Genet et qu'ils publièrent en juillet 1948 dans Combat une lettre ouverte au Président de la République, Vincent Auriol, en faveur de la libération de prison du poète - voyou. Quelques années plus tard, Cocteau aidera Sartre à créer un comité de soutien à Henri Martin, opposant communiste à la guerre d'Indochine condamné à cinq ans d'emprisonnement pour distribution de tracts. Cocteau participera également à la mise en scène des Mains sales, pièce de Sartre créée en 1948 au Théâtre Antoine. En offrant au pape de l'existentialisme un exemplaire dédicacé de La Difficulté d'être, l'infatigable dandy lui soumet l'une de ses œuvres les plus intimes. Dans l'ouvrage, c'est en poète qu'il évoque d'ailleurs l'engagement politique de Sartre : « mais pourquoi se borne - t - il à l'engagement visible ? L'invisible engage plus loin. [...] Les poètes s'engagent sans aucune autre cause que de se perdre. » Rare témoignage des liens entre deux figures majeures de la scène intellectuelle et littéraire du XXème siècle.

        L'espèce humaine

      La cité universelle, 1947. - La cité universelle, Paris 1947, 14,5x18,5cm, broché. - Edizione per il quale non è stato redatto carta di grandi dimensioni, copia con una buona copertura. Molto raro autografo firmato Robert Antelme a Francesco Ambrière. "Non c'è nessuna specie umana, non vi è una specie umana. Questo perché siamo uomini come loro che le SS in ultima analisi, impotenti davanti a noi.". Questo lavoro fondamentale sull'esperienza di nazisti campi era la terza e ultima pubblicazione della casa editrice effimera fondata da Marguerite Duras e Robert Antelme, il marito 1940 - 1946. Inosservato in questa prima versione confidenziale, solo poche copie sono state vendute, è stato messo in vendita l'anno successivo sotto nuove coperture da Robert Marin, il libro soffre la concorrenza dei tanti scritti sull'argomento sono apparsi subito dopo la guerra. Eppure, come riferito da F. Lebelley "in un momento in cui le storie abbondano, il potere speciale di quel libro, una prima sobrietà, sconvolge come scrittore fondazione libro di testo che ha anche preso riconosce Duras. , "l'ampia letteratura." Robert Antelme mai scrivere altro. Nonostante i riconoscimenti e onori, la specie umana sarà solo il lavoro di una vita. " (In Duras, o il peso di una piuma.) Grazie all'intervento di Albert Camus, il libro riappare dieci anni più tardi nel 1957 da Gallimard e poi sa una più ampia diffusione. Pertanto, questo libro è parte della storia della letteratura come uno degli scritti più importanti per la riflessione dolorosa ma necessaria sui campi di concentramento e la condizione umana. E 'dopo di lui che scrittori come Jorge Semprun suo amico inizieranno un nuovo approccio alla scrittura dei campi impossibili. Nel 1947 Antelme ha annunciato nella sua prefazione "solo tornando, abbiamo ridotto la nostra memoria con noi, la nostra esperienza di vita insieme e ci siamo sentiti un frenetico desiderio di raccontare così com'è. E nei primi giorni, però, sembrava impossibile colmare la distanza che abbiamo trovato tra linguaggio e abbiamo avuto questa esperienza [...] Come rassegnarsi a non cercare di spiegare come avevamo venire qui? eppure eravamo lì. Eppure era impossibile. Basta iniziare a dirci che eravamo soffocante. Per noi stessi, quello che avevamo da dire, allora abbiamo cominciato a sembrare inimmaginabile. " Torna un po 'incrinato e con piccole lacune alla testa e piedi, un piccolo mancanza nell'angolo in alto della prima piatta colpito anche un piccolo strappo insignificanti, bella copia. Raro e significativo copia, assente dalla maggior parte delle biblioteche nazionali e internazionali, tra cui il BNF. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers, exemplaire comportant les bonnes couvertures. Très rare envoi autographe signé de Robert Antelme à Francis Ambrière. "Il n'y a pas d'espèces humaines, il y a une espèce humaine. C'est parce que nous sommes des hommes comme eux que les SS seront en définitive impuissants devant nous.". Cet ouvrage fondamental sur l'expérience des Camps nazis fut la troisième et derniere publication de l'éphémère maison d'édition fondée par Marguerite Duras et Robert Antelme, son mari de 1940 à 1946. Passé inaperçu lors de cette première parution confidentielle, seuls quelques exemplaires furent vendus, il fut remis en vente l'année suivante sous de nouvelles couvertures par Robert Marin, l'ouvrage souffrira de la concurence des nombreux écrits sur le sujet parus immédiatement après guerre. Pourtant, comme le relate F. Lebelley : "à une époque où les récits abondent, la puissance particulière de ce livre - là, d'une sobriété première, bouleverse tel un texte fondateur. Livre d'écrivain aussi qui a pris, reconnaît Duras, "le large de la littérature". Robert Antelme n'en écrira jamais d'autre. Malgré les éloges et les honneurs, L'Espèce humaine restera l'oeuvre unique d'une vie." (in Duras, ou le poids d'une plume.) Grâce à l'intervention d'Albert Camus, le livre reparaît dix ans plus tard, en 1957 chez Gallimard et connaît alors une diffusion plus large. Dès lors, ce livre s'inscrit dans l'histoire littéraire comme un des plus importants écrits affrontant la douloureuse mais nécessaire réflexion sur les camps de concentration et la condition humaine. C'est à sa suite que des écrivains tel que son ami Jorge Semprun pourront commencer une nouvelle approche de l'impossible écriture des camps. Dès 1947, Antelme annonçait dans son avant - propos « nous revenions juste, nous ramenions avec nous notre mémoire, notre expérience toute vivante et nous éprouvions un désir frénétique de la dire telle quelle. Et, dès les premiers jours cependant, il nous paraissait impossible de combler la distance que nous découvrions entre le langage dont nous disposions et cette expérience [...] Comment nous résigner à ne pas tenter d'expliquer comment nous en étions venus là ? Nous y étions encore. Et cependant c'était impossible. A peine commencions - nous à raconter, que nous suffoquions. A nous - mêmes, ce que nous avions à dire commençait alors à nous paraître inimaginable. » Dos légèrement fendillé et comportant de petits manques en tête et en pied, un minuscule manque au coin supérieur du premier plat également affecté d'une petite déchirure sans conséquence, agréable exemplaire. Rarissime et important exemplaire, absent de la plupart des bibliothèques Nationales et internationales, notamment de la BNF.

Remarquable publication tirée à 250 exemplaires, tous sur papier vélin d’Arches à la forme filigrané à l’épi de blé et à l’abeille.

Lioré et Cailler, dans le Catalogue de l’œuvre gravé de Dunoyer de Segonzac, ont rapporté ce qu’a écrit l’artiste sur ce livre : « Si j’ai choisi le thème des Géorgiques, c’est pour tenter d’accompagner d’eaux-fortes les scènes de la vie rurale qui sont demeurées presque les mêmes depuis l’Antiquité. « De nos jours, la motorisation à outrance ayant envahi la vie des champs, il ne serait plus possible d’illustrer le texte de Virgile en observant la vie paysanne telle qu’elle est devenue. « C’est le poète Roger Allard qui le premier, vers 1920, a eu l’idée de me faire graver des eaux-fortes sur les thèmes virgiliens. « Plus tard, le grand éditeur Ambroise Vollard m’ayant demandé d’illustrer un livre avec des eaux-fortes, me proposa un texte de Colette, mais, me souvenant des conseils de Roger Allard, je l’orientai vers Les Géorgiques de Virgile : il accéda à mon désir « J’ai gravé toutes les planches des Géorgiques devant le merveilleux spectacle du terroir de la Provence et de l’Ile de France aucune n’a été gravée à l’atelier, toutes devant le thème éternel de la vie rurale : le labour des blés et des vignes, les semailles, la moisson, les vendanges, les abeilles Pour le Chant III, consacré au bétail, je m’installais avec mes cuivres dans les pâturages, au milieu des troupeaux de vaches et de bœufs, gravant directement et m’efforçant d’exprimer leur beauté plastique puissante et paisible » (Lioré et Cailler, Catalogue de l’œuvre gravé de Dunoyer de Segonzac, V, pp. 11 à 13). Exemplaire parfaitement conservé malgré d’inévitables mais légères rousseurs éparses présentes dans pratiquement tous les exemplaires. Quelques usures aux étuis. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Field Guide of Birds of the West Indies

      New York, NY: MacMillan, 1947.. FIRST MACMILLAN PRINTING. Octavo, pp.xii, 257, [1], blank. With colour plate illustrations and line drawings by Earle Poole. Publisher's brown cloth titled in black to spine and front board, map endpapers, original dust-jacket. Book is fine; jacket a little soiled and torn, price-clipped to foot but showing $3.75 to top of flap. A very good copy. The acclaimed work by the ornithologist James Bond, whose name was famously appropriated for fiction's most celebrated hero. The original edition was published by the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, in a different format. This eyecatching edition 'has been completely rewritten in a popular style', and is certainly the printing which influenced Fleming; when writing his debut novel in 1952, this version of the book was on his shelf and not the obscure original work; Fleming had purchased land and built a Jamaican home in 1945 and, according to Ben McIntyre, (and re-affirmed by Fleming throughout his life), while pondering his character Fleming 'simply lifted the name from his bookshelves, his eye having alighted upon 'Field Guide to [sic] the Birds of the West Indies' by James Bond, the standard reference book published by MacMillan in 1947'. Due to the connection, this book has simply dried up in recent years- whilst reprints may be obtained, this 1947 first edition is rather scarce, with no copy appearing in book searches at the time of writing.

Others have come out in the last 2 decades, but this was the first (many, though by no means all, photos are by Vishniak) . Documenting Jewish life in Eastern Europe with over 600 photos (and text in English and Yiddish) , this work was an early post-war portrayal of these communities within the obvious context that they were gone forever, some with almost no trace of their thousand year histories remaining. Abramovitch himself was a refugee from this world--he was a leader of the Mensheviks in exile who worked at the Jewish Daily Forward and was also active in the Bund. Published as a memorial to these extinct communities, the book is bound in attractive heavy red linen with gilt spine and cover lettering in English and Yiddish, with a paper label (with a woodcut design) on the front.

        We The Living

      Cassell & Co., Ltd, 1947. EIGHTH EDITION PRESENTATION COPY. 1 vol., inscribed and dated on the front blank endleaf by Rand "To Eugene D. Williams - - with sincere admiration - Ayn Rand July 21, 1951". Bound in the publisher's original blue/gray cloth, head and foot of spine ever so slightly rubbed, inner and outer hinges fine, some light offsetting to front blank otherwise VERY GOOD. "We the Living" is Ayn Rand's first novel. Published in 1936, the story is set in Soviet Russia, from which Rand had fled to America ten years earlier. The immigrant Rand was startled by the failure of American intellectuals and politicians to uphold the American ideals of individualism and freedom, and she was horrified by the widespread acceptance, even sympathy, that greeted the spread of communism, socialism and fascism in Europe. Rand resolved to expose the "noble ideal" of collectivism, through the story of three young people whose lives are sacrificed by an all-powerful state. Originally titled "Airtight," this unvarnished account details the methods by which the spirits of its best citizens are suffocated by the collectivist state. The initial American publication of "We the Living" was not a commercial success. Macmillan did not expect the novel to sell and did little marketing. Initial sales were slow and although they picked up later, Macmillan destroyed the plates before the first printing of 3000 copies sold out. Eighteen months after its release, the novel was out of print. Rand's royalties from the first American edition amounted to $100. An edition revised by Rand was published in 1959, following the success of Atlas Shrugged (1957).
