      Lenox, [Mass.], oct. 13, 1947 - "Your pictures were good seventeen years ago, the were excellent ten years ago and they are wonderful now. I hope we will be here in another ten, twenty and thirty years from now; you taking pictures, me admiring them and raving that they are magnificent, superb, unsurpassed, in short: not bad, not bad at all. "With best wishes "Stefan Lorant "Lenox, Oct. 13, 1947" Stefan Lorant (1901-1997) is widely acknowledged as a founder of modern pictorial journalism. Born into a family of studio photographers in Budapest, he pursued a career in silent-film making in Vienna and Berlin, then went on to both found and edit illustrated magazines in Germany, Hungary, and England. As editor of the Münchner Illustrierte Presse, Lorant transformed it into the first modern photojournalistic paper in Europe; his political commentaries after the Nazi putsch in 1933 enraged Hitler, who ordered him imprisoned. A year later, he was released through the intercession of the Hungarian government and began editing a paper in Budapest. Lorant wrote a memoir, I Was Hitler's Prisoner, and took the manuscript to London; it was published in 1935. Lorant became editor of Odham's Weekly Illustrated and then the influential British magazine Picture Post. "His innovative layouts, his 'exclusive' interviews and thirst for knowledge became a familiar part of millions of everyday lives, largely through his own creations, and in particular the legendary media icon Picture Post. His vision of photography as a documentary medium inspired Life and Look magazines in America" (biographer Michael Hallett). In 1940 he came to America where he wrote and edited pictorial history books, including the noted Lincoln: His Life in Photographs 8-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches. Pen and ink on paper.

        La Peste

      Gallimard, Paris 1947 - FIRST EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY CAMUS; one of 2000 copies of Alfa Navarre. Inscribed on half-title: "au Reverend Père Dubarle / avec la confiance / Albert Camus". Dubarle was a prominent critic who wrote several studies of Camus's work. "When The Plague was first published in 1947, the majority of French critics greeted it as an allegorical presentation, not only of la condition humaine in general, but also of the particular experience of the German occupation. Yet it would be an extremely limiting interpretation to see in The Plague only the description of a single historical experience. The struggle against plague and occupation are part of a wider struggle, not only against the physical evil inherent in the world, but also against the evil which men, by their blindness and indifference as well as by their cruelty, do to one another" (Philip Thody). La Peste, Camus's second novel, is perhaps his most effective demonstration of two of the central themes of his work, namely personal morality and the "man in revolt". Paris: Gallimard, 1947. Octavo, original wrappers; glassine; custom box. Book slightly cocked with a little bit of toning to spine; pages a little toned (as usual). An extremely well-preserved copy in original wrappers. Rare inscribed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Bandeau à décors ornementaux en couleur rehaussés d’or pour la page de titre encadrée d’un filet doré. 10 peintures à la gouache encadrées et rehaussées d’or sur papier paraffiné « à l’indienne », dont 1 double page. Chaque peinture est encadrée d’un filet doré et surmontée d’une légende expliquant la scène représentée. Reliure souple en plein maroquin rouge brun de l’époque, très bel exemplaire en parfaite condition. Rare. Superbe manuscrit érotique enluminé indo-persan réalisé à la fin du XVIIIe ou au tout début du XIXe siècle. Les 10 peintures très vivantes et détaillées représentent différentes scènes de harem ou zenana (en Inde musulmane) dans plusieurs lieux de résidence d’un grand personnage musulman ou nawab (souverain indien de religion musulmane). Un érotisme discret mais présent et bien agréable pour le lecteur apparaît sur certaines peintures au fil des pages. Nota Bene : À la suite de la conquête musulmane des Indes, les rajputs (fils de râja), en particulier, utilisèrent un mode similaire d’enfermement des femmes dans des pièces isolées, partie d’habitation ou aile de palais, appelées Zenana Mahal ou « palais de reines », dont la fonction était de soustraire les femmes, épouses, filles et sœurs au regard et à la convoitise des hommes et des envahisseurs.

        Announcing the UN Resolution to Establish a Jewish State in Israel

      1947 - Broadside. November 29, 1947. 1 p. 27.5 x 39.5 in. To the Workers of Israel, celebrating the historic decision of the United Nations General Assembly authorizing the establishment of a Jewish state in the land of Israel. Full TranscriptionTo the Workers of Israel and to the the Jewish Settlement in Israel!A historical event for all the workers of Israel: Here comes the historical decision that we have hoped for 2,000 years. We will awaken conscience throughout the world. Indeed, we have not yet completely obtained our rightful claim. However, it is our joyful right to swear independence in the State of Israel right now. It was the Israeli resilience, it was our fateful declaration, it was in our government's resolving mandate, it was in our displacement. It was the plot [for us] to be broken. Two significant, powerful countries- The United States and the Soviet Union, along with the majority of the world's nations, faithfully protected our right and stood beside us demanding a State of Israel. Against the "White Paper" [of 1939], The Worker's Party of the State of Israel brought immigrants to Israel. The flag [ie flagship?] of the Israeli Government called for the salvation of the Jewish settlement, the Zionist Movement, and the common masses of Israel throughout the whole world. All around were signs for us to withdraw our outlandish plans- they urged us to fold and to neutralize. We were not hostile towards outside council, but we did not flinch from our path. Today we are standing on the threshold of our realized dream. Since the creation of our people and the struggle in our land, our nation has been troubled; we have progressed in the day of our government's campaign- those who stood against us are convinced. It is not the day to take our opponents into account. We have faced the histories of our past. We were without observers along the way, who were we to go beyond establishing the entirety of the Israeli Government, to gather the Diaspora, to deepen the roots in the soil of our homeland [reference to immigrant's agricultural work?], to create the socialized worker, to propose friendly relations and peace with the Arabs of our land and our neighbors.Witnesses were blind to our difficult struggles and the criticalness of our past and current obstacles. It is the strange historic hour from which the working population, Jewish settlements of Israel, and the entirety of the Jewish people are bound-To rise up with a renewed and refreshed spiritTo focus on building our StateTo volunteer together and help on anotherTo support our military and defend our nationTo go out and settle the deserts and uninhabited landsTo be welcoming to all immigrants To be disciplined settlers and citizensTo be united as Laborers of IsraelTo all of the Jews of the Diaspora, the Refugee Camps, and immigrants who were smuggled in during the British Mandate it will be said: You have not suffered and struggled in vain. We have approached the great hour of your freedom and your emancipation! The Labor Party has carried on for two generations in the dimmed Zionist vision and the pioneering project, managed the ranks in preparation for our generation's duty and called to all the workers in the land to come and to glorify the camp of the united pioneering Zionists- the issue of the dream [for Israel] the Israeli Government was robbed of that has now been achieved. The Labor Party of Israel.Center Saturday Night, Kislev, 29.11.1947Historical BackgroundOn November 29, 1947, the U.N. General Assembly voted 33 to 13, with 10 abstentions, in favor of the Partition Plan (General Assembly Resolution 181). The division was to take effect on the date of British withdrawal from Palestine. Both the U.S. and U.S.S.R. voted yes. Afghanistan, Cuba, Egypt, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen voted no. Great Britain was one of the abstentions.ConditionOn thin paper, folded, some creasin. (See website for full description)

        Song of Robin Hood

      Cambridge, MA: The Riverside Press, 1947. First edition. Quarto, original cloth. Inscribed by Virginia Lee Burton, "Greetings to the 'Caner' from Virginia Lee Burton." Near fine in the original dust jacket with some wear and tear.Anne Malcolmson, Grace Castagnetta, and Caldecott medalist Virginia Lee Burton joined forces in 1947 to produce the definitive edition of The Song of Robin Hood. Their triumphant achievement was one of the most distinctive presentations of the legend ever published, and it received a Caldecott Honor Medal in 1948. Through meticulous research and unfailing perseverance, Anne Malcolmson rediscovered fifteen of the original ballads of Robin Hood; Grace Castagnetta adapted them to modern musical notation. Virginia Lee Burton spent three years on drawings to accompany the songs, ultimately producing a work of art filled with exquisite detail and worthy of comparison to the greatest illuminated manuscripts of the medieval era.

        Calculating Machines: Recent and Prospective Developments and Their Impact on Mathematical Physics.

      Cambridge, Cambridge Unversity Press, 1947. 8vo. In the original printed wrappers. A 2 cm long tear to lower part of spine, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. 40 pp. + 2 photos.. First printing of Hartree's famous inauguration speech, which not only "marks the introduction of the knowledge about electronic digital computing into Britain [...]" (Erwin Tomash Library, H31) but also constitute "the first booklet on electronic computers separately published by a conventional publisher, and also one of the earliest discussions of how these machines could be used in scientific calculations" (Origins of Cyberspace 649).The present publication marks shift from computers being seen as a purely technical toy to an invention with a huge potential to the scientific community and society in general: "This can be seen as the start of Hartree's work on bringing computers and their potential to the attention of the scientific community." (DSB)."It reports on information he acquired while on a research trip to the United States earlier in the year. During his visit he was able to use the new ENIAC to solve a problem of integrating differential equations. He points out that the entire computation and punching of the result took less than four minutes, and it would have taken a human at least two days to simply write down the out produced during that time, let alone do any calculations. Such computing power must have seemed like a dream come true to his audience, but Hartree went on to describe the new machines under development that would be much easier to set up, more flexible to use and, more importantly, have more storage for data than the ENIAC." (Erwin Tomash Library, H31)."In 1945, Hartree paid an official visit to the United States on behalf of the British government, during which he visited the Harvard MARK I and ENIAC projects-both large-scale calculating machine projects. The ENIAC was built at the Moore School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania; it led directly to the development of the stored program computer concept, influencing computer design around the world. In 1946, Hartree again visited the ENIAC at the express invitation of the U.S. War Department in order to explore the ENIAC's application to scientific problems, with particular reference to the laminar boundary flow problem. Hartree was thus well placed to understand the advances being made in the United States and to promote computer development in the United Kingdom. It is unclear whether Hartree knew of the top secret Colossus machines built at Bletchley Park for code-breaking purposes, but he certainly moved in social and scientific circles with those who did. Hartree sat on advisory committees and executive groups and gave very positive support to the development of computers. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, electronic computers were developed in three main locations in the United Kingdom-at the University of Manchester, Cambridge University, and the National Physical Laboratory at Teddington. Hartree influenced all three projects, usually acting behind the scenes to promote, enable, or support the work." (DSB)Erwin Tomash Library H31Origins of Cyberspace 649
