        Report to the General Assembly by the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine.

      London H.M.S.O. August 1947 - Sextodecimo (24.5 x 15.4 cm); iv, 98 pp., original printed paper wrappers with small marginal tears. The United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) was created on 15 May 1947 in response to a request by the United Kingdom government, for the General Assembly to make recommendations concerning the future government of Palestine. The British government had also recommended the establishment of a special committee to prepare a report for the General Assembly. The General Assembly adopted the recommendation to set up the UNSCOP to investigate the cause of the conflict in Palestine, and, if possible, devise a solution. UNSCOP was made up of representatives of 11 nations (Australia, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Guatemala, India, Iran, Netherlands, Peru, Sweden, Urugay and Yugoslavia). The request came following the failure of the predecessor commission: the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine and the Morrison Grady plan. The submitted report supported the termination of the British Mandate in Palestine, and contained a majority proposal for a Plan of Partition of Palestine into two independent states with Economic Union (see p. 72) as well as a minority proposal for a Plan for one Federal union with Jerusalem as its capital (see p.88). On 29 November 1947 the General Assembly adopted Resolution 181, based on the UNSCOP majority plan (with slight modifications to the proposed recommendations, including modifications to the border lines of the two future states – the Jewish and the Arab).

        Exhibition catalogue of ceramics by Marguerite Mahood, 1947 (with handmade card by the artist)

      Exhibition of earthenware figures, lustre and filigree ware by Marguerite Mahood : David Jones' Art Gallery March 27th to April 16th 1947.Sydney : David Jones' Art Gallery, 1947. Duodecimo, illustrated wrappers (detached), [24] pp, illustrated with 3 full-page b/w plates and listing 261 works with prices; loosely inserted are a group of press cuttings relating to Mahood dating from the 1940s-70s; a typed letter signed in full by Mahood, dated 20 April 1978, encouraging a friend's writing; and an exquisite handmade season's greetings card by Marguerite Mahood, featuring a linocut design titled Australian Ringtail Possums, dating to December 1964 and with a handwritten message from the artist to a young student of Philosophy at the University of Melbourne, in very good condition. Melbourne artist Marguerite Mahood's oeuvre - which from the early 1930s until 1956 consisted almost exclusively of ceramic works - has in recent years achieved a resurgence in interest after decades of critical ambivalence. Mahood was one of only a small number of Australian professional women artists active prior to the 1950s.A single copy of the David Jones' Art Gallery catalogue - which dates to Mahood's most creative and successful period - is recorded in Australian collections (State Library of Queensland).

Volume 15 has red cloth over the spine and boards, and volumes 16 and 17 are bound with a red cloth spine and and red and silver printed stiff card wraps. Very good condition. The extremities are lightly rubbed, and the pages are tanned. The Exploration of the Colorado River in 1869. The Exploration of the Colorado River and the High Plateaus of Utah in 1871-72. From the introduction- "More than three-quarters of a century has passed since Major John Wesley Powell's parties began their exploration of the Colorado River country, yet the records of the Powell exploration have a freshness, an immediately contemporary interest, that few records in the annals of American exploration still possess. Roads, even superhighways, have been built into the most parched of the West's deserts, and over or through its most formidable mountain barriers, but one who would know the Colorado country must still penetrate it as Powell and his men did in 1869 and 1871-72, by taking to boats or resorting to pack trains.

        Escales d'Asie.

      Paris, Laborey, 1947. 4to. Contemporary tan crushed morocco, top edge gilt, lime-green reversed goat endpapers, illustrated front wrapper bound in, morocco-lined slip-case; pp. 134, [18, the final 3 blank], title printed in green and black and with hand-coloured vignette, one map of Arabia with hand-coloured vignette, numerous hand-coloured illustrations (one double-page size); apart from light rubbing to slip-case, a very fine copy. First edition, number 333 of 450 copies printed of an extremely rare and beautifully produced work describing the Arabian coast and the Persian Gulf. Frédéric-Charles Bargone, who published mainly under the pseudonym Claude Farrère, was a French novelist and traveller who had been in the French Navy up to 1919. The artist Charles Dominique Fouqueray, official Navy painter since 1908, participated in two Asian voyages, in 1921 and 1924. His rich pictorial material resulting from the Arabian part of these voyages is published here for the first time with the text commissioned for this edition. Both artist and writer where perfectly suited for a book on the coastal scenery and navigation of these waters, as well as traditional sailing and ship building techniques.The section on the Gulf starts on p. 89, taking up the rest of the volume, and includes a little excursion up the Tigris. There are not many books with artistic illustrations of the places on the Western coast of the Gulf. It is also unusual that the book is entirely illustrated in original watercolour over very faintly printed grey and black outlines and shades, and not, as one would expect from a French mid-century book, pochoir-coloured.

        ROCKET SHIP GALILEO

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1947].. Octavo, cloth. First edition. The author's first book, preceded by a pamphlet printing a convention speech. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. It is the first published novel by a major, perhaps the most important, science fiction writer of postwar America. Heinlein began publishing SF in 1939 during the golden age of ASTOUNDING SCIENCE FICTION. After World War II, he expanded the market for SF genre material, publishing his fiction in upscale magazines of the period (THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, BOY'S LIFE, and others). In 1947 he introduced a generation of postwar young readers to this literary genre with the first of a series of juvenile novels which were published as hardcover books by the renowned mainstream publisher Charles Scribner's Sons, and later by G. P. Putnam. Their circulation was wide and they could be found in the children's section of most public libraries of the day. This title is "... the first U.S. juvenile SF novel to reflect the new levels of characterization, style and scientific plausibility now expected in the field ... it was the first in a series that represents the most important contribution any single writer has made to children's SF ..." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (1994), pp. 554-7. "A pioneering novel that began American mainstream science fiction for children and combined young protagonists, gadgetry, current science, and adventure in such a way that even today the book retains interest." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-515. George Pal's 1950 film Destination Moon is loosely based on this novel. Heinlein co-authored the screenplay and served as a technical advisor to the production, along with German rocket expert Hermann Oberth. Destination Moon, the first of Pal's many SF films, "has great historical importance: its commercial success initiated the SF film boom of the 1950s, after a decade that had contained almost no SF cinema at all. It has interest in hindsight, too, in the partial accuracy with which it anticipated the actual Moon landing of 1969. To this day, Destination Moon stands as a film obvious made by people who knew about science ..." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (1993), p. 324. Private owner's bookplate with name in ink affixed to half title page. Light damp stain at the bottom right edge of the front cover and another at the lower left rear corner of the rear cover, a very good copy in very good first state dust jacket (printed price of $2.00) with a damp stain on the inner surface along the lower edges with no show through on the outer surface and mild rubbing along the front flap fold.

Size: 21 x 14.5cm [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Tales of the South Pacific

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1947. First edition of Michener's first book, with the statement of "First Printing" on the copyright page and the date 1947 on the title page. Octavo, original cloth. In 1940 Michener began a nine-year association, interrupted by World War II, with the Macmillan publishing firm as a social-science editor. In October 1942 Michener enlisted in the U.S. Navy reserve, was commissioned the following February, served for a year at desk assignments in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, and in April 1944 was sent to the Pacific theater of operations. He was partly an aviator inspector but mostly a publications officer. His visits to some 50 islands inspired his Tales of the South Pacific (1947). Originally scheduled for publication in 1946, the book did not actually see print until the next year, when Macmillan issued it with a new, tipped-in title page dated 1947, as here. Although the book won a Pulitzer Prize for fiction, it remained little known until South Pacific, the 1949 musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, made him famous and rich. Then he began to write full time" (ANB). Contemporary name to the inside panel, near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket.
