        Photo Album - A British Commonwealth Forces Officer's Account of the Aftermath of WWII - Occupation Souvenir of Japan

      Japan, 1947. Japan, 1947. Uniquely commemorative photograph album containing snapshot views of Hiroshima, Etajima, Bepuu, of war scenes and civilian life, taken by a member of the British Commonwealth Occupation Force serving in Japan. from July 1947. Contains 197 gelatin silver photographs neatly mounted with corners onto taupe cardstock leaves, with occasional manuscript captions. 8vo. purpose made album, navy blue satin boards skilfully illustrated and titled with embroidery to front, measuring approximately 31 x 23 x 3,5 cm. Photographs measure approximately 8 x 5,5 cm. Minor wear to extremities of boards, otherwise in Very Good Condition, bright and captivating images. A well balanced visual chronicle illustrating Japan's post war era of restoration, reformation and Westernization, a British Commonwealth Occupation Force officer has captured indigenous celebrations, undamaged Japanese monuments and gardens, quaint villages and tiered rice fields. Striking views also draw attention to Second World War devastation including the Hiroshima bombing, subsequent collaborative rebuilding efforts, and oil works - the coveted resource and cornerstone of control in industry and war. The author of these photographs is unknown. For most of the occupation period the large majority of the BCOF's personnel were Australian, although the force was also composed of British, Indian and New Zealand men. The album spans several months, possibly a year as some of the soldiers are wearing the summer uniform wand others are in the more elaborate uniform for colder months. All men all wearing the white belts, braces and gators, representing a peacetime uniform. The album begins with views of the BCOF Headquarters at Etajima still smouldering from a fire that consumed it on 26 July 1947. [One year earlier, in April 1946, HQ BCOF had moved from Kure to the island of Eta Jima.] Also in Etajima City, in Hiroshima Bay, we find several photographs of Japanese citizens enjoying a grand festivity with a parade of floats and entertainers. The troops held a march of recognition of the Independence of India, 15 August 1947, which was the officially partitioning of British India into the two new independent dominions of India and Pakistan. Photographs of the Hiroshima destruction include the Ruin of Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall. [The ruin serves as a memorial to the people who were killed in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945. Over 70,000 people were killed instantly, and another 70,000 suffered fatal injuries from the radiation. Now known as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, the Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Domu, it is part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.] Several views are taken at Beppu on the nearby island of Kyushu, the soldier evidently being granted a sojourn to visit its famous "onsen" or hot springs and grand carved statues. Here also lay abandoned carcasses of wartime aircraft and a half sunken iron vessel. Terraced rice fields, mountain views, and city scenes are captured, including what appears to be Nagarekawa-dori - an important shopping street. A rail journey also takes he and a comrade to Mount Fuji. The official British Commonwealth Occupation Force (BCOF), composed of Australian, British, Indian and New Zealand personnel, was deployed on February 21, 1946. While U.S. forces were responsible for the overall occupation, BCOF was responsible for supervising demilitarization and the disposal of Japan's war industries. BCOF was also responsible for occupation of several western prefectures and had its headquarters at Kure. At its peak, the force numbered about 40,000 personnel. The major task of the BCOF force being conducted was the destruction of the Japanese war machine. A vast quantity of equipment and warlike stores of all kinds existed in the BCOF area, troops having located caves and tunnels containing large quantities of explosives, ammunition and poison gases. Japanese military equipment and stores were disposed of, destroyed, or whenever possible re-purposed by the Japanese Home Ministry in the rehabilitation of Japanese industry and civilian life. In 1947, the BCOF began to decrease its activities in Japan. By September 1947 it had been suggested to incorporate the three Australian MP units (23,24 Independent Provost Platoons and 34th Australian Infantry Brigade Provost Company) into one organic Provost unit. The units were already operating together under the same command, it was a logical step which soon came to fruition. By this stage of the Occupation, India had withdrawn its contingent, including Indian Military Police. The occupation force officially wound up in 1951. . Very Good.

        Vor ofødte søn. Skuespil i fire akter.

      Köpenhamn; Nyt Nordisk Forlag / Arnold Busck, 1947. Originalets titel: Vår ofödde son (Stockholm, 1945). Översättning av Carl Erik Soya. 21,5x16 cm. 120 s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Det överdimensionerade omslaget är något veckat i yttre och nedre marginalerna. Ryggen är delvis loss i limningen och är något skrynklad. Rygghuvudet är aningen nött, kort reva i nedre framfals och några riss i yttermarginalerna. Fin inlaga. Dedikation: ''Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

Two hundred and forty stencils were made in order to reproduce the contents oft the eighty pages [...]. The text was conceived, designed and organized by Bezalel Schatz [...].

        50 Photographs

      Duell Sloan & Pearce, New York 1947 - FIRST EDITION, one of only 1500 copies initialed by Weston. In the rare original dust jacket in exceptionally good condition. With essays by Robinson Jeffers, Merle Armitage, and Donald Bear. Illustrated with folio reproductions of fifty of Weston's photographs. "Though [50 Photographs] includes all of Weston's genres--landscapes, nudes, still lifes, and portraits--it is an unusual selection, more edgy than iconic. The overall effect. is to make visible the real legacy of Weston's work, the way it influenced so much of what would come after. The 50 photographs are followed by a portrait of Weston himself, taken by his son Cole in Point Lobos in 1946, in which the old man is shown wedged between boulders: alert, watchful, mobile, and as sound as stone" (David Levi-Strauss inThe Book of 101 Books). Roth 128. Open Book 150. New York: Duell Sloan & Pearce, 1947. Folio, original cloth, original dust jacket. Owner bookplate and stamp on front free endpaper; owner stamp also on rear pastedown and at bottom of limitation page. Cloth very clean; dust jacket with light edgewear. An excellent copy in the rare dust jacket - one of the finest examples we've seen of the notoriously fragile jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      NY Henry Holt 1947 - First edition. One of 751 copies signed by Frost. Title page decoration by Loren MacIver. In a review in the June 1, 1947 issue of the New York Times, Randall Jarrell singles out "Directive," an early poem in Frost’s penultimate collection, for possessing "so much longing, tenderness, and passive sadness." For Jarrell, the dirgeful majesty of "Directive" was a reminder of Frost’s greatness as a poet who has "written so well about the actions of ordinary men."

        Rid i natt! Roman från Värend 1650. Illustrerad med trägravyrer av Harald Sallberg.

      - Stockholm; Bonniers, 1947. (Romaner i folkupplaga). 19,5x13 cm. 347, (2, 3 blanka) s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Ouppskuren. Det överdimensionerade omslaget är veckat i nedre marginalerna samt vid ryggfoten. Några obetydliga fläckar på ryggen. Fint ex. Dedikation: "Kristina -- till minnet av den 2-3 juni 1947 -- Författaren / 'Du sjöng för mig om kärlek intill döden -- än brusar i min själ din blå koral' (Gullberg)". )? [?Kristina ? to the memory of the 2nd-3rd of June 1947 ? The Author / 'You sang to me of love unto death ? still hums in my soul your blue choral' (Gullberg)?]. Vilhelm Moberg (1898-1973), Swedish journalist, social critic, and one of Sweden?s foremost authors of the 20th century. He was born in Algutsboda in the province of Småland, where his father served as a soldier. Moberg worked in his youth with farming and forestry. After a few years of schooling, he worked as a journalist at different provincial newspapers, in which he also published his first short stories. His breakthrough as an author came in 1927 with the novel ?Raskens. The Story of a Soldier?s Family?, where he depicts the life of the tenant farmers in 19th century Småland. His foremost work, which has been widely translated and is considered one of the finest epic works in Swedish 20th century literature, is ?The Emigrant Novels? (1949-1959). In this tetralogy he describes the Swedish emigration to North America through the story of the farmer Karl Oskar Nilsson and his wife Kristina. Moberg was politically engaged and always fought for individual rights, and for the abolition of the monarchy and the State Church of Sweden. He intervened in affairs of corrupt legal practice and published the bestselling book ?Why I am a Republican? (1955). His political views were inspired by his visits to USA and by the Swiss constitution. Moberg had a love affair with a woman named Kristina, whose name he used for the main character Kristina from Duvemåla of ?The Emigrant Novels? This love affair has remained unknown for over half a century, until a collection of his novels, all inscribed by Moberg to Kristina [Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005)], appeared on the market. Judging from the tone in the inscriptions, the relation between Moberg and Kristina was initially intimate and loving, and gradually devolving into affection. In the early inscriptions from the 1940s Moberg writes, for instance: ?To Kristina, my confidant and beloved!?, and in the play ?Chastity? he writes: ?Vilhelm Moberg?s chastity ? what is left of it is hereby dedicated to Kristina? The later in-scriptions from the 1960s contain phrases like: ?with a devout greeting? and ?from her affectionate Vilhelm? In the copy of ?The Emigrants? (?Utvandrarna?, 1949) Moberg writes: ?To Kristina, my be loved, who has lent her name to the female main character in this book, with gratitude and love from The Author.? In the last inscription, in the pocket edition of ?The Emigrant Novels? from 1969, he returns to the fact that she has given her name to Kristina from Duvemåla, which shows that the thought of her had occupied his mind during all these years, and it is also a sign of her probable influence on his writing from 1945 onwards. What further strengthens this opinion is the copy of ?Our Unborn Son?, a play from 1945, which deals with the issue of abortion. This is the only one of these books that has been bestowed with a fine leather binding, with a pocket at end of the volume where Kristina has collected newspaper cuttings on the book and its author, suggesting that the theme of this novel was essential to her. The book was translated into Danish in 1947, and in the collection there is a copy of the Danish edition which has been inscribed to Kristina by the translator thus: ?? This book, which is partly about you?? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Roger Vieillard (9 février 1907, Le Mans - 1er mars 1989) est un graveur buriniste et illustrateur français, proche des artistes de la nouvelle École de Paris. L'oeuvre de Roger Vieillard, qui compte 662 estampes, est très personnelle, il utilise un trait précis d'une grande habileté, il possède un style unique et identifiable. L'oeuvre de Roger Vieillard est considérée comme l'une des plus importantes dans la gravure du XXe siècle et l'artiste comme « le plus pur des burinistes ». Pour lui le burin «est le seul qui suit avec fidélité les fantaisies de l'esprit. Pénétrant profondément dans le cuivre dont il déchire la surface, son ouvrage est plus proche du ciseau du sculpteur que du pinceau du peintre ». Tenté par l'abstraction et le surréalisme, il a fait évolué sa technique pendant des décennies, jusqu'à ses derniers reliefs gravés, des tirages sur plâtre. L'illustration de livres, une trentaine, représente la moitié de son oeuvre gravé. Il est aujourd'hui exposé dans le Cabinet des Estampes de la Bibliothèque nationale, le musée de Beauvais, la Bibliothèque de Bordeaux, le Musée du dessin et de l'estampe originale de Graveline, le Musée des beaux-arts de Nantes, le Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg, Limited Edition
