      New York: Forward Association. 1947. First Edition. Oblong 4to; 575 pages; First edition. Original Publisher's Cloth. Oblong 4to. 575, [7] pages. illus. 20 x 27 cm. In Yiddish and English throughout. A defining work on the lost Jewish communities of Europe. 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. Bit of discoloration to covers, faint shadow from spine label, otherwise Very good condition. Excellent copy, much better than usually seen. (HOLO2-75-11) .

        Dreams That Money Can Buy

      NY: Films International, 1947. Paperback. Green wraps slightly darkened at the edges, otherwise a nice copy of this promotional booklet for Richter's film with a cover design by Max Ernst from his book La Semaine de bonte. One of the most influential members of the cinematic avant garde, Richter In this film made the bold attempt to introduce this work to a wider audience Using the framing story of a man who discovers how to craft and sell dreams to a series of anxious clients, Richter allotted each dream (seven in all) to artists who included Max Ernst, Fernand Leger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder. Some chose to reprise their work in cinematic form - Ernst recreates a sequence from his collage novel La Semaine de Bonte - and Richter uses music by composers ranging from Darius Milhaud and John Cage to Duke Ellington. Very good.

        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).

        Economie & Interet.

      Paris: Imprimerie National, 1947. First edition. Octavo, 2 volumes, original wrappers as issued. Inscribed by Maurice Allais on the title page of volume one. From the library of fellow Nobel Prize-winning economist Kenneth Arrow, with his name in each volume. In near fine condition with light shelfwear, minor mending to the first few pages of volume one. A nice association linking these two Nobel Prize winning-economists and giants of twentieth century economics. In ?conomie & Int?r?t, Maurice Allais introduced the first overlapping generations model (later popularized by Paul Samuelson in 1958), introduced the golden rule of optimal growth (later popularized by Edmund Phelps) or described the transaction demand for money rule (later found in William Baumol's work). In 1988 Maurice Allais became the first French citizen to receive the Nobel Prize in economics. He won it for his contribution to the understanding of market behavior and the efficient use of resources. Allais also showed that his insights could be applied to help set efficient prices for state-owned monopolies, of which France had many. Allais's work paralleled, and sometimes preceded, similar work done by English-speaking economists Sir John Hicks and Paul Samuelson. He also proved a result in growth theory in 1947 that had been credited to Edmund Phelps. Allais did not get credit as early as his English counterparts because his work was in French. "Had Allais' earliest writings been in English," commented Paul Samuelson, "a generation of economic theory would have taken a different course.

It is MacNeice's most well-known radio play. The Dark Tower is one of the most acclaimed creative works written and produced for BBC Radio. Louis MacNeice (Irish/British poet, 1907-1963). He attended Oxford, where he majored in classics and philosophy. In 1930, he married Giovanna Ezra and accepted a post as classics lecturer at the University of Birmingham, a position he held until 1936, when he went on to teach Greek at Bedford College for Women, University of London. In 1941, he joined the British Broadcasting Company as a staff writer and producer. Like many modern English poets, MacNeice found an audience for his work through British radio. He was part of the generation of "thirties poets" which included W. H. Auden, Stephen Spender and Cecil Day-Lewis; nicknamed "MacSpaunday" Although he chose to live the majority of his adult life in London, MacNeice frequently returned to the landscapes of his childhood, and he took great pride in his Irish heritage. His poetry is characterized by its familiar, sometimes humorous tone and its integration of contemporary ideas and images.This collection is on consignment with LDRB.

Dust jacket illustration and coloured frontispiece by John Piper. Spines slightly toned. Excellent copies in bright jackets with a few minor nicks and chips to extremities. Two copies, first editions, first impressions. Both presentation copies, inscribed by the author to Anthony Powell. The first, in blue biro, in a scrawling hand: "For Tony, the host of Bats with deep respect from Evelyn" and with a half-page caricature drawing by the author, of a woman with curly hair and a veil and a man (self portrait?) in evening dress. The second copy is inscribed, conservatively and somewhat sheepishly: "Dear Tony, I am conscious of having abused your hospitality by defacing a copy of this story. I accordingly inscribe this with simple esteem & gratitude. Evelyn Easter Tuesday 1955." Each copy with Powell's bookplate to the front pastedown. An exceptional association linking two of the great novelists of the twentieth century.

        1st Infantry Division Report on "Operation Elephant", Palestine, 1947.

      Printed and reproduced by Survey of Palestine, April, 1947. Foolscap quarto. Original printed light card wraps. Cartoon vignette to the title page, three folding maps, folding itinerary, plans and tables to the text. Just a little rubbed on the wraps, slight scuff at the tail of the spine, but overal very good. First and only edition, this copy 196 of just 200; extremely uncommon, no copy traced on either Copac or OCLC, a single copy located in the Stockwell papers at the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives. Secret report giving a highly detailed account of the operations connected with the implementation of martial law in Tel Aviv, Petah Tiqva, and Ramat Gan in March 1947; "As a result of the constant activity of the Jewish illegal para-military organisations, culminating in the kidnapping of Judge Windham and Major Collins, the Government decided to clear the field for concerted action against the dissident groups, by the evacuation of civilian and military families and the placing of essential civilians into cantonments Â… the imposition of Martial Law and the withdrawal of Civil Government from the area Â…" (p.4) "Aptly-named" in view of its scale, Elephant "required a larger and more formal organisation" than the simultaneous operations in the Jewish sector of Jerusalem (Charters, The British Army and Jewish Insurgency in Palestine, 1945-47, p.122). In Jerusalem 129 people were detained and a mine factory uncovered, in Tel Aviv the security forces carried out four major searches, making over 50 arrests, some 24 of those being members of Irgun and Lechi; "Although martial law did not eliminate terrorism - incidents occurred even in the controlled areas - the arrests were apparently a major blow to the insurgents; during the next quarter of 1947 the rate of insurgent operations declined by more than 50 per cent" (p.123).
