        The Victim.

      The Vanguard Press, New York 1947 - First edition of the author's second novel. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed twice by the author. Signed "good wishes Saul Bellow" on the title page and again on a notecard on the front free endpaper. Light rubbing, near fine in the original dust jacket with a few small chips to the spine and overall wear. Looking back at his first two novels later in his career, Bellow "distanced himself from them by calling Dangling Man his M.A. and The Victim his Ph.D." Like many of his works, the protagonist is a young Jewish man. In a New York heat wave he is accosted in the park by a stranger who accuses him of ruining his life. "The best novel to come out of America-or England-for a generation" (The New York Review of Books). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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).

An old school journalist in many ways, he became best known for his personality pieces, "His major at Harvard had been Latin and Greek, which is evident in his writing style: superbly classical, terse, graceful, and lyrical with detail" (New Yorker obituary).

        The Moment and Other Essays

      London: The Hogarth Press 1947 - First edition, first printing. One of 10,000 copies. Personal copy of author's niece, Angelica Garnett, presented and inscribed by the author's sister Vanessa Bell: "Angelica / from VB" in blue ink to the front free endpaper. Publisher's pale ruby red cloth boards, lettered in gilt; pink dust jacket with vase of flowers illustration printed in black. About good (this copy appears to have taken a bath, dust jacket and all): bright cloth and gilt, tidemarks and paper residue to boards, pink bleeding from the dust jacket to the first and last few pages of text and the page edges, hint of spotting to the top edge, light rippling to the otherwise clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, faded and rippled from dampstaining, with loss to the spine ends, toning to the spine, wear and chipping to the extremities, panel text and illustrations unfaded. Housed in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Kirkpatrick A29a. The Moment and Other Essays is a collection of twenty-nine of Virginia Woolf's essays, selected and published posthumously by her husband Leonard Woolf. Her second posthumously published set of essays, following The Death of the Moth in 1942, The Moment contains a mix of previously published and unpublished essays, including: "On Being Ill," "The Artist and Politics," "The Leaning Tower," "On Re-reading Novels," and "Sterne's Ghost," among others. Many of the essays contain Woolf's trademark literary commentary in which she commemorates rather than analyzes literary figures and their works. Vanessa shared a very close relationship with her daughter Angelica Vanessa Garnett (née Bell, 1918-2012), the youngest of her three children. Writing to her son Julian in May 1936, Vanessa describes her affection for Angelica: " having a daughter has been in a way the most terrific experience of my life - that's to say the most penetrating, intimate, I don't know how to put it, experience."

        weibliches Portrait, in Original Pastell-Kreide hinter Passepartout,

      (1947). 1947 - schönes signiertes Blatt. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger (* 30. Juni 1892 in Buchen im Odenwald; &#134; 12. April 1966 in Karlsruhe) war ein deutscher Maler. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger zählt zu den Vertretern der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Er ist der Sohn eines Gymnasialprofessors und machte 1911 sein Abitur. Von 1911 bis 1915 besuchte er die Königliche Kunstgewerbeschule München und studierte parallel in München Architektur. Ab 1913 war er Schüler des Gebrauchsgrafikers Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke und ein Freund von Karl Rössing. 1918 wurde er zum Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg eingezogen. Er war 1919 für die Zeitschrift Der Weg und ab 1920 für die Zeitschriften Wieland und Simplicissimus tätig. Schnarrenberger unterrichtete von 1921 bis 1933 an der Badischen Landeskunstschule. 1924 war er Gründungsmitglied der ORNA-Werkstätten für Werbung und Innendekoration. Unter den Nationalsozialisten war seine Kunst verpönt und wurde 1937 als entartet gebrandmarkt und verboten, nachdem er bereits seit 1933 nicht mehr unterrichten durfte. 1933 übersiedelte er mit seiner Familie nach Berlin, wo er versuchte, als freischaffender Gebrauchsgrafiker seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Den bevorstehenden Krieg voraussehend zog er 1938 nach Lenzkirch im Schwarzwald, wo er zusammen mit seiner Frau Melitta (1909-1996) eine kleine Ferienpension eröffnete. Hier entdeckte er das für sein späteres Werk so wichtige Thema des Stilllebens. 1947 wurde er zum Professor an die Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe berufen. 1962 erhielt er für sein künstlerisches Werk den Hans-Thoma-Staatspreis. Schnarrenberger legte stets auf das handwerkliche Können seiner Schüler großen Wert, so mussten diese zuerst das Zeichnen von architektonischen Gebäuden und Alltagsgegenständen erlernen, bevor er sie malen ließ. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger war der ältere Bruder des Generalmajors der Wehrmacht Ernst Emil Schnarrenberger (* 27. Juli 1893 in Buchen im Odenwald; &#134; 10. Juni 1966 in Bad Mergentheim).[1][2].

        Album of Aerial and Cultural Photographs]

      np nd [ca. 1947], (Alaska, various) - Oblong folio commercial hardcover album made by The Burkhardt Company, Detroit, model X 89500, 13.5" x 10.75" x 2.5". Screw binding, 74 black paper pages with a single black and white gelatin print mounted recto only to each, most measuring approximately 7.5" x 9" with brief, typed captions mounted below. Additional print mounted to front cover; 75 photographs total. Album exterior moderately worn, cloth dry and flaking. Three sections of material loss at outer edge of covers and to upper rear, likely mouse-bitten, similar loss to edges of final two pages (not effecting photos). Two images missing captions. Photographs well preserved, occasional mild wear. About very good. An impressive collection of 75 well-annotated, predominantly aerial photographs of pre-statehood Alaska, likely compiled by a U.S. Army Officer stationed at Fort Richardson near Anchorage, just after WWII. 49 images captured from aircraft of some of the most spectacular, unspoiled environments anywhere. Cities, settlements and geographical locations include Galena, Ketchikan, Port Alexander, Sitka, Port Althrop, Skagway, Juneau, Fort Seward, Valdez, Anchorage, Barrow, Nome, the Taku Glacier, Mount McKinley, Mount St. Elias, and Mt. Moffet. The remaining 26 prints, equally as beautiful, though taken at ground level, display the cultural and trade aspects present around 1947. Highlights include an Eskimo mother and daughter on Nelson Island, fishing boats in Ketchikan, totem poles on Wrangell Island, a midnight baseball game, and a full salmon scowl at a cannery in southeast Alaska. Five prints with lettering in the negative, though none with clear evidence as to the purpose behind their creation. Clearly the work of a skilled photographer, an immediately engaging collection of images. NOTE: High resolution scans of this complete album are available. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Economie & Interet.

      Imprimerie National, Paris 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." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Middle of the Journey.

      New York: Viking Press,, 1947. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in yellow, pictorial vignette in blind to front board. With the dust jacket. 10 items laid-in, most folded and with light toning, some with mild rust-marking from staples, in very good condition overall: contents detailed below. Agent's ink-stamp to front free endpaper. Sunned along extremities, tips very lightly bumped, a few pale markings to boards, free endpapers tanned. A very good copy in the slightly rubbed and nicked dust jacket. First edition, first printing. Roger Senhouse's copy, sent to him by literary agents Pearn, Pollinger & Higham for the preparation of the first UK edition, published by Secker and Warburg the following year, here containing an illuminating collection of ephemera and correspondence exchanged between Senhouse, Frederic Warburg, Trilling, and critic Cyril Connolly over a period of two years, tracing the novel's UK publication from Senhouse's lukewarm assessment of Trilling's capabilities to its eventual success. The Middle of the Journey, a roman-à-clef of the McCarthyist era in American politics, was Trilling's first and only novel. As professor of English at Columbia University, New York, he had already published two books of criticism, on Matthew Arnold and E. M. Forster, and a number of short stories. Roger Senhouse and Fredric Warburg established Secker and Warburg when they assumed control of failing Secker in 1935. They soon became known as "the Trotskyist publishers" owing to their willingness to publish anti-Communist works by left-wing authors. As a young man Senhouse had notably been the last lover of Lytton Strachey: the sadomasochistic nature of their relationship was revealed with the publication of their letters in 2005. Cyril Connolly was close friends with Senhouse and responsible for arguably his greatest success as a publisher, suggesting to George Orwell that he try Secker and Warburg after the author had parted company with Communist-sympathiser Victor Gollancz following the publication of The Road to Wigan Pier (1937). The laid-in material includes two typed letters each from each of Trilling (both signed) and Connolly (one signed), various documents annotated extensively by Senhouse, as well as two further letters from him to Trilling (both signed). Those involved in the novel's publication consistently express concerns over Trilling's style and characterisation, though appear to have been divided over the appeal of its political message; Connolly and an unnamed reviewer both identify the influence of E. M. Forster. Senhouse's own letters refer to his continuing friendship with Lytton Strachey's sister Dorothy Bussy, and also to the postwar recession in British publishing that would lead to the absorption of Secker and Warburg into Heinemann in 1951. A full catalogue of contents is available on request.

        The New Economics: Keynes’ Influence on Theory and Public Policy.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1947. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Fine in a very good dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities. Signed by economists Paul Samuelson and James Tobin, who contributed essays to this volume. Other contributors include John Maynard Keynes, Wassily Leontief, Lloyd Metzler, Gottfried Haberler, Wassily Leontief, Abba Lerner, Joan Robinson, Joseph A. Schumpeter and Jan Tinbergen among others. A very nice volume dedicated to the work and influence of Lord Keynes. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1970. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics. His inspiration for doing so came, in part, from his mentor, polymath Edwin Bisdwell Wilson who was a former Yale student of the founder of chemical thermodynamics, Willard Gibbs. Samuelson, therefore, is a successful example of interdisciplinarity, and he combined these ideas in his magnum opus Foundations of Economic Analysis.

      [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. Small edge tears on cover foredge. Backstrip corners bumped. Institutional stamp (M. Y. H.
