Shifreen & Jackson, A60a: ""The copyright page notes that this edition was limited to 800 copies, however, this is in error. 800 sets of the sheets were printed in 1947 along with the silk screen blue cloth used for the binding. Somewhat less than 200 copies were bound, enclosed in slipcases and put on sale in April 1947, and with the remaining sheets stored in Miller's closet. In 1971 and 1977, additional binding of the first edition sheets would occur (see Shifreen & Jackson A60b and A60c).

        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).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Amsterdam, 19. November 1947.. 4 SS. Folio. Bleistift. Gelocht.. Ausführlicher Brief an den Musikkritiker Otto Maag in Basel. "Ihr lieber Brief hat mich gefreut; nicht weniger die Restituierung Hoffmans. Ich beeile mich, den Auszug zurück zu schicken, das kleine Textbuch kann ich wohl behalten. Ich will es nämlich nach Budapest schicken wo ich den Hoffmann an der National-Oper im Februar oder März 1948 einstudieren soll. Ich bin durchaus überzeugt von Ihrer und Herrn Haugs Bearbeitung und will es in dieser Fassung gern machen. Hoffentlich ist man in Budapest einverstanden. 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."

        High-Speed Computing Devices

      New York: McGraw-Hill. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN THE EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET of the first textbook on digital computers. Popular and influential, it served as the first "how-to" guide for building an electronic digital computer. "High-Speed Computing Devices was written to satisfy a perceived need, following the end of World War II, for a compendium of technologies applicable to the emerging field of the electronic digital computer. Because published technical information was scarce in the US, there can be little question that the book was an important contribution to the computer literature of the 1950s. For today&#39;s student of computer history, whether a professional historian or a history buff, the book, with its state-of-the-art picture of the period 1947 through 1949, establishes a well-documented baseline for tracking and evaluating subsequent technological progress" (A.A. Cohen, "Introduction", Charles Babbage Institute Reprint Series Edition of the ERA Report, 1983). Supervised by C.B. Tompkins and J.H. Wakelin; edited by W.W. Stifler, Jr. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1950. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. With neat ownership stamp and address on front free endpaper. Book fine with spine gilt remarkably bright. Dust jacket with fading to spine and very light edgewear and a few tiny spots of rubbing. SCARCE in the original dust jacket.

        Menachem Begin "Manifesto" attacking UN Resolution to Partition Palestine into Jewish and Arab States

      1947 - Broadside. December, 1947. 1p. 14" x 19 3/4". In Hebrew. Partial Transcript"this 'solution' will not solve the problem .and will not bring peace in Palestine. Such a bisected state will not be able to absorb the mass Jewish Diaspora.The Jewish homeland.like every nation's homeland, requires historic entity."Menachem Begin's politics put him increasingly at odds with David Ben-Gurion. Emblematic of this divide was the militant stance taken by the Irgun, whose ideology was characterized by its symbol, a raised rifle over both sides of the Jordan River.

From the library of Theodore von Karman (1881-1963), with his characteristic docketing on the first offprint&#39;s front wrapper. <p>First Separate Editions. The first theoretical study of rocketry published in the United States after World War II, written by three members of Cal Tech&#39;s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The three-part paper, published two years after the end of the war, reflects the advances in rocket science made available to the United States after the collapse of Nazi Germany, which during the war had developed the first long-range guided rockets (the V-1 and V-2) and used them as weapons in the last months of the conflict. The paper also discusses the work on liquid- and solid-propellant rocket systems done at Cal Tech&#39;s Jet Propulsion Laboratory under the guidance of the lab&#39;s director, Theodore von Karman. Topics covered here include the dynamics of rocket jets, the theory of solid-propellant operation, fundamental of liquid-propellant rocket motors, sounding rockets and escape from the earth, and rockets utilizing nuclear energy.</p><p>This set of offprints is from the library of Theodore von Karman, who in addition to directing the JPL at Cal Tech was also the founder of the Aerojet Engineering Corporation, one of the industrial giants of the jet age. "At Caltech, Karman and his students laid the foundations for aerodynamic design leading to supersonic flight" (DSB). Ley, Rockets, Missiles and Space Travel (1951), p. 415.</p>

        HAUTE SURVEILLANCE.

      - Paris, Les Cinéastes-Bibliophiles, 1947, in-12 (13 x 19cm) broché, 103 pages. Edition originale hors commerce tirée en tout à 60 exemplaires sur papier Lana de Docelles (un beau vélin fort). Celui-ci a été imprimé au nom du cinéaste Claude Autant-Lara. Bel exemplaire conservé dans son cristal d&#146;origine, une décharge sur le faux-titre. Il a été exceptionnellement enrichi par Claude Autant-Lara de deux documents : 1) Un feuillet dactylographié au recto, 188x130 mm, contrecollé sur l&#146;enveloppe d&#146;expédition à Claude Autant-Lara, suscription manuscrite (quelques similitudes avec l&#146;écriture de Cocteau), timbres oblitérés. Il s&#146;agit d&#146;une lettre signée par Jean Cocteau et Jean-Paul Sartre dans des conditions bien particulières de la vie de Genet. En effet, après sa libération du camp des Tourelles en mars 1944, celui-ci croyait en avoir fini avec la prison. Mais, au terme de divers recours formés par ses avocats, la Chambre des appels de police correctionnelle de la Cour d&#146; Appel de Paris le condamne en mai 46 à purger le reste de sa peine, une dizaine de mois semble-t-il. Pour empêcher l&#146;exécution de cet arrêt, et surtout l&#146;application possible de la peine de relégation, Sartre et Cocteau adressent un recours en grâce au Président de la République Vincent Auriol sous la forme d&#146;une supplique dactylographiée. Leur appel est publié dans Combat le 16 juillet 1948. Simultanément, les deux parrains de Genet adressent à des personnalités du monde littéraire et artistique la lettre dont nous parlons : « Cher Monsieur, / Nous vous prions instamment de répondre par votre signature à la demande de recours en grâce que nous adressons au Président de la République en faveur de Jean Genet, frappé par la relègue. Il est inutile de vous dire combien votre nom aura de poids dans une démarche si urgente et si nécessaire. Nous vous remercions à l&#146;avance et vous prions de croire, cher Monsieur, à nos meilleurs sentiments. J. Cocteau &#150; J.P. Sartre ». Document rarissime, manquant notamment au Jean Genet. Essai de chronologie par Albert Dichy et Pascal Fouché qui reproduit le brouillon de Cocteau, le fac-similé de la lettre dactylographiée au Président et l&#146;article de Combat mais pas cette lettre. 2) Un billet autographe de 7 lignes sur un morceau de nappe en papier : « Cher confrère, / venez boire un alcool / avec nous à Saint-Damien / Nous vous admirons tous beaucoup / On vous donnera la main / Amitié / Jean Genet ». Le billet comporte au verso 5 lignes manuscrites de Jacques Natteau « Tu vois que je ne peux / pas m&#146;éloigner trop de / l&#146;équipe. C&#146;est ici que je viens tenter de ne / pas penser à Cordier / Jacques Natteau ». Jean Genet et Jacques Natteau, qui fut un des grands directeurs de la photographie de l&#146;après-guerre, réalisèrent ensemble en 1950 le film Un chant d&#146;amour qui fut aussitôt censuré. Natteau, directeur de la photographie attitré d&#146;Autant-Lara durant plusieurs années (c&#146;est probablement au héros, Cordier, du projet de film Tu ne tueras point que fait ici allusion Natteau), fit sans doute les présentations. Le ton du billet du cinéaste néophyte Genet, mêlant insolence, familiarité et respect à l&#146;égard du monument du cinéma français qu&#146;était Autant-Lara, est inimitable. Provenance archives du cinéaste Claude Autant-Lara. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
