        Finnegan's Wake

      NY: Viking Press, 1947. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Finnegan's Wake was Joyce's last work and has received increased and growing accolades over the years. As comic prose, the structure is formed around convoluted, complex word puns with references to intellectual, scientific, and literary sources. Stream of consciousness, literary allusions, and free dream association develop an unique language. To further complicate the reading, the sentence fragment at the end of the book is the beginning of the sentence that begins the book as a fragment. Owner book plate. This a 1st US edition, 5th printing.

"Jeg tror nok det kan la seg ordne å få istand en generalprøve på den måte De skriver om i Deres brev. (...) Jeg har tenkt på om Max Tau og hans kone, Tove Tau, kunne være med. De var begge flyktninger under krigen, men er meget sympatisk innstilt overfor Hamsun, og ser på rettsoppgjøret på en rolig måte." Hendelsen omtales i Thorkild Hansen "Prosessen mot Hamsun" s. 548-549

        Biblioteca Hispano Americana Setentrional o Catalogo y Noticias de los Literatos que o nacidos o educados, o florecientes en la America Septentrional Espanola, han dado a luz algun escrito, o lo han dejado preparado para la prensa. 1521 - 1850

      Ediciones Fuente Cultural, Mexico City 1947 - Two volumes, 19.5 x 15 cm, pp Five volumes in two, plus supplements. Five hundred numbered copies were done of this edition, in 5 volumes, and "ademas se tiraron algunos ejemplares en papel biblia." of which our copy is one of these. This set of Beristain, the last published, incorporates all the additions and emendations made by Leon, Icazbalceta, Medina, etc., right up through Henry Wagner. In addition, reference sections, e.g. on "marcos de fuego," and Genaro Estrada's "160 Notas Bibliograficas," and several very useful indices not contained in the original. In short, the best edition of Beristain, who, in turn, is absolutely essential for studying colonial Mexico. Every author is located biographically, with his works enumerated. Is is true that the entries are not up to the modern critical standards -- the work was written over many years ending only at his death in 1817, though additions have been made in this edition up to 1850 . Not at all common on the market. Fine copies in publisher's blind-stamped cloth. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        PICCOLA PRETURA. Oltre il varco c'è il paese. (MANOSCRITTO originale autografo).

      Manoscritto 1947 Manoscritto autografo dell'Autore del suo romanzo più famoso, dal quale venne anche ricavato il film di Pietro Germi ?In nome della legge?. Sette quaderni (dimensioni 20x28 cm) di 88 pagine l'uno. Copertina rosa. Quaderno prodotto dalla Società Cremona Nuova, nel 1944. Sulla copertina del primo quaderno il titolo manoscritto ?Piccola Pretura. ?oltre il varco c'è il paese?. ? Scrittura ad inchiostro, calligrafia ben leggibile, con correzioni, biffature, aggiunte (a volte con inchiostro rosso). All'inizio del primo quaderno è applicata una carta trasparente con il disegno a china raffigurante co n una veduta a volo d'uccello i luoghi di svolgimento del romanzo, nella realtà il centro di Barrafranca, con pretura, chiesa, Municipio, barbiere, Poste, ecc. ? A pag. 1 il distico: ?I fatti e i personaggi di questo libro sono del tutto immaginari e, pertanto, qualunque riferimento ad avvenimenti o a persone reali sarebbe infondato?. Data: Roma 10 dicembre 1946 / 18 febbraio 1947. E la sigla di Lo Schiavo. Il quaderno 7, in fine, contiene un elenco dei personaggi di Piccola Pretura: Autorità Giudiziaria, Polizia, il Dottore, il Barone, don Fifì, don Peppino Cilombo, massaro Turi Passalacqua, il Sindaco, il Parroco, ecc.Alla fine del quaderno, spillati, due cartoline e una lettera indirizzate a Lo Schiavo (grafia usata anche Loschiavo), e due cartoline illustrate degli altari della chiesa di Barrafranca. - Il romanzo venne pubblicato nel 1948 dall'editore Colombo, Roma, ed ebbe immediato successo: una seconda edizione venne pubblicata già nello stesso anno. Una terza e una quarta edizione nel 1949, anche sull'onda del film di Germi ?In nome della legge? tratto dal libro (tra gli sceneggiatori anche Fellini, Monicelli e Pinelli). Nel 1950 le edizioni stampate da Colombo erano già 7. Successivamente Lo Schiavo scrisse altri romanzi in qualche modo ispirati al rapporto tra autorità e potere mafioso: Gli Inesorabili (1950), Condotta di paese (1952); Terra amara (1956): il Mare di Pietra (1960). Giuseppe Guido Lo Schiavo, nato a Palermo nel 1899, morto a Roma nel 1973, è stato uno scrittore, un giurista e un magistrato, esperto in Diritto del Lavoro, Criminologia e Procedura Penale. Il tipo di rapporto tra Pretore e mafia descritto nel suo romanzo Piccola Pretura e poi nel film di Germi suscitò molte polemiche: L'ambiguità di un finale in cui il pretore stringe un patto di lealtà con la banda del mafioso Passalacqua, in "... una concezione romantica e, certo, discutibile del fenomeno mafioso", furono sottolineate da diverse parti , anche da Leonardo Sciascia (La Sicilia nel cinema).

Die Gleichschaltung' Muse-Niclaus kannte ich schon, aber die Umstellung der Akte (Giulietta zum Schluss) war mir neu. Sehr logisch und sehr schön. - Vielleicht komme ich Anfang Jänner nach Basel (via Rom, wo ich am 4.1.48 zu dirigieren habe.) Dann könnten wir alles besprechen. (Ich könnte dann auch die Schubert Opern sehen, was mich sehr interessiert.) Dass Sie an dem Sommerkonzert in Interlaken Freude hatten, freute mich besonders. Dieser Krieg wurde ohne Zweifel von der Nazi Ideologie gewonnen. Es handelt sich um einen neuen Krieg (ohne Waffen) [ ] Dieser Krieg wird schwieriger, langwieriger, ernster sein wie der letzte war. Der Kulturspiegel' scheint mir eine grosse Hilfe. Ich lese den Kulturspiegel mit grossem Interesse. Was geschah nur vor einigen Tagen in Wien mit Furtwängler? Ich wüsste es sehr gerne und kann hier keine Information erhalten. Würden Sie sie mir geben?" - Der Brief ist in sehr zittriger Schrift geschrieben, bedingt durch eine partielle Lähmung als Folge einer Hirnoperation im Jahr 1939. Offenbach war während der Arbeit an "Hoffmanns Erzählungen" gestorben, bevor er die endgültige Fassung und Reihenfolge seiner Oper bestimmen konnte. Diese ist dann in der Folge mehrfach bearbeitet worden, u.a. gibt es eine Fassung von Otto Maag und Hans Haug, von der im vorliegenden Brief die Rede ist. Furtwängler war im Jahr 1947 in Berlin vom Verdacht der Kollaboration mit den Nazis freigesprochen worden; über das Ereignis in Wien, das Klemperer in seinem Brief erwähnt, konnten wir nichts ausfindig machen.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1/2 page on a single sheet of letter-size paper, signed "Fritz" in green ink, dated 5 August 1945, to "Dear August" [Derleth]

      Faint fold crease and some mild edge-rumpling, else near fine.. (#116646). A businesslike letter to Derleth, as editor of Arkham House, concerning the edition of Leiber's tales that he was preparing. NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS appeared in 1947, Leiber's first book, and Arkham's 29th. (It was also the first of their titles which went subsequently into a paperback edition, brought out by Ballantine Books in 1961.) In this letter, responding apparently to Derleth's request for blurb material, Leiber refers to a letter he had received from H. P. Lovecraft late in 1936 after sending him the novella, "Adept's Gambit." He points out several sections of the letter, which he had enclosed, that might be suitable for quoting. "... I was delighted to receive a letter from Lovecraft containing not only some general comments, but an unexpected list of detailed criticisms and corrections, which I hastened to make use of in preparing a second writing of the story ... ." The front dust jacket flap did, in fact, wind up using some of this copy. "'Some day I hope the Fafhred Cycle will get into print,' wrote H. P. Lovecraft after reading the manuscript of the novel herewith, 'leading off with Adept's Gambit.'" Bleiler calls NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS "one of the landmark volumes in modern fantastic fiction" (Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1002) -- though he didn't care much for the Fafhred/Mouser story, which, in fact, was the only part of NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS omitted in the Ballantine paperback. The letter links three of the most important figures in mid-twentieth-century American fantastic fiction.

        Cup and saucer used by representatives of the United States, United Kingdom, Soviet Union, and France at meetings of the Allied Control Council which issued directives, laws, and proclamations to the four occupied zones of postwar Germany

      "3.5? cup and matching 6? saucer, the manufacturer is ?1747 / F / 1947 / Fürstenberg.? The flag of each of the ?Big Four? nations adorns the dish. Small chip just inside the rim of the cup, otherwise fine condition. After Germany?s unconditional surrender on May 8, 1945, government power ceased to exist in Germany. On June 5, 1945, the Allied Control Council was established. Government power was taken over by the Commanders-in-Chief of the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and France. Although the country was divided into occupation zones, the idea of a unified Germany was preserved: decisions on ?the chief questions affecting Germany as a whole? were to be made by the Allied Control Council and these decisions needed to be unanimous. The Allied Control Council met in the former building of the Kammergericht, the Supreme Court of the State of Prussia, in the American sector of Berlin. On August 30, 1945, the Allied Control Council issued its first proclamation informing the German people of its existence, explaining that the commands and directives issued by the Commanders-in-Chief in the four zones would not be affected by the establishment of the Council. Representing the ?Big Four? were General Dwight D. Eisenhower (USA), Field Marsha; Bernard L. Montgonmery (UK), Marshall Georgi Zhukov (USSR), and General Jean de Lattre de Tassigny (France). In 1945 and 1946, the Council issued numerous proclamations, laws, and directives dealing with the abolishment of Nazi laws and organizations, demilitarization, and denazification, as well as all issues affecting the German people such as Law No. 7 (November 30, 1945) regulating the distribution of electricity and gas in the various occupation zones, Directive No. 14 (September 13, 1946) equalizing the wages of female and minor workers with male workers, Law No. 49 (March 20, 1947) abrogating the German law of 1933 which governed relations between the German government and the German Evangelical Church, while keeping the independence of that church in internal matters, and Law No. 62 (February 20, 1948) repealing all Nazi laws regulating the activities of churches in Germany.On June 5, 1947, U.S. Secretary of State George C. Marshall announced a comprehensive program of American assistance to all European countries wanting to participate, including the Soviet Union and those of Eastern Europe. The European Recovery Program which became known as the Marshall Plan was opposed by Soviet dictator Josef Stalin. He did not want American aid to Soviet-controlled nations such as Poland, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia. To coordinate the economies of the American and British occupation zones, these were combined into what was referred to as Bizonia, later re-named the Trizone, when France joined in.Representatives of these three governments, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg, met in London in January 1948 to discuss the future of Germany, despite Soviet threats to ignore any decisions taken. The Soviets then began stopping British and American trains to Berlin, in order to check the identities of the passengers. On March 12, 1948, Stalin outlined a plan to force the policy of the western allies into line with the wishes of the Soviet government by ?regulating? access to Berlin. The Allied Control Council met for the last time on March 20, 1948, when Soviet representative Vasily Sokolovsky, commander in chief of Soviet forces in East Germany, demanded to know, from the American, British, and French representatives, the outcome of the London conference. Being told that they had not as yet received the final results from their governments, he said, ?I see no sense in continuing this meeting, and I declare it adjourned. The entire Soviet delegation rose and walked out."
