        KOLGHOSP TVARYN [ANIMAL FARM]

      [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 â??the negative impact of Soviet myth in Western socialist movement. Â? Shevchenko first read the book in English while living in a displaced persons camp. He chose to publish it under the title â??Kolghosp Tvarynâ? which directly referenced collectivized farms instead of choosing the more direct translation of â??Ferma Tvaryn. Â? â??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. Â? (Chalupa, â??Orwell and the Refugees. Â?) Subjects: English fiction -- 20th century -- Translations into Ukrainian. OCLC lists one copy worldwide. (British National Library) Some age toning and rubbing. Small edge tears on cover foredge. Backstrip corners bumped. Institutional stamp (M. Y. H. Youth of CDWU. ) on half-title page. Number written on half-title and cover. Small puncture through cover near fore edge continuing to page 11. Puncture hole does not affect text, but does affect Orwell portrait. Good + condition.

        Photo Album]: Military Hospital South Africa 1947

      South Africa 1947 - Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 10". Green plastic photo album with "postcard album" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 98 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" and 3.5" x 4.5" with some captions. Album is near fine with slightly bowed boards with fine photographs.A collection of photos from the Baragwanath Military Hospital, also referred to as BMH, in South Africa shortly after World War II beginning in 1946. Commissioned in 1940, BMH was built in response to the hostilities of World War II and the large number of causalities. The British War office requested that South Africa create two hospitals with a total of 1,200 beds for the Middle East Command. Fueled by a war that was not going well for the Allies, the hospital was completed and able to admit it's first patient six months after it's approval and was named "The Imperial Military Hospital, Baragwanath". By the end of the war the hospital was treating men from both the Middle Eastern and Far Eastern Commands, most of whom suffered from Tuberculosis.The photos here show the hospital post war where British and Commonwealth soldiers were still recovering from their war wounds and disease they contracted while fighting. The album appears to have been kept by one of the medical staff of the hospital and shows uniformed men on and off duty in South Africa. The barracks and tented encampments used throughout the facility are shown here with men posing for pictures. One photo shows an orderly dressed up in scrubs with a face mask and a knife tucked into his belt. There are photos of the coast depicting battleships, including the HMS Bermuda, as well as men swimming during their leisure time with action shots of diving and men lounging on beaches. The city of Johannesburg is seen in pictures of the locals, the town center, and shops. One drug store has a sign that announces they speak English. In 1947 the Royal Family made the journey to South Africa and stopped at BMH to visit soldiers and present medals to those wounded in action. The photos here show the preparation for the Royal family with men laying a carpet for the King to stand on when handing out the medals. There is a distant shot of the Royal Family standing in front of the crowd and a photograph of the crowd as they stand aside while the Royals pass through. The hospital was eventually bought by the government of South Africa and began to focus it's care on the indigenous black population. It is now the largest hospital in South Africa.An intriguing collection of post war photography from a military hospital. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MASQUE OF MERCY

      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

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.
