        Het Achterhuis

      Contact Amsterdam 1947 - Het Achterhuis. Dagboekbrieven van 12 Juni 1942 – 1 Augusten 1944. FRANK, Anne. Published by Amsterdam: Uitgeverij, Contact, 1947. Amsterdam: Uitgeverij, Contact, 1947. Octavo. Original boards, title to front board on a terracotta-colour background. The spine is slightly browned, some say it is a deliberate colour, I think it is genuine browning from age and consummate to materials used at the time. Minor, expert tissue repairs to head and tail of the spine, an exceptional copy. Prior to minor repair, this copy had come away from the spine, as you will notice starting to happen in other copies. Having repaired this copy, the book restorer noted that the spine liner were the words “Die Vergeltung” (possibly included in other copies). It is believed that the publishing company, Contact Publishing, were probably in-charge of the printing and binding of the book in house. “Die Vergeltung” is literally translated to “Retribution” or “Revenge”. It is thought that this was a deliberate addition to the spine liner; something hidden to the eye unless the spine is to come apart from the text block. Maybe this is the only copy like this with the specific binder taking offence or seeking to bring about “revenge” on one side or the other, though one cannot be sure unless they were to find another copy detached from the spine, or unnecessarily damage a copy of the like. This wonderful and unique first edition, first printing copy has the original bookshop ticket on the front free fly leaf: a small blue ticket with the bookshop's name, "Boekhoven's Boekhandel Sommelsdijk". This copy was most likely sold as new from this bookshop; it was a very active and well known bookshop at this time. This wonderful and unique first edition, first printing copy is now housed in a full pale blue Morocco box with a terracotta panel on the front. Raised bands on the box with the title, author and date, marked as first edition. This first edition as stated, portrait frontispiece, two photographic plates, a plan and two facsimiles of Frank's handwriting. One of the genuinely emblematic books of the 20th century. Anne's dispassionate recording of life in the concealed attic room of her family's Amsterdam home during the Nazi occupation have led to her achieving a rather narrowly "iconic" status, a figurehead for the experience of Europe's Jews, so for Ilya Ehrenburg she could represent "one voice [that] speaks for six million." An Exceptional Copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed

      ("C.S. Lewis" with a couple of handwritten corrections) in black ink, Magdalen College, Oxford, October 27, 1947. 8" x 3 1/2"; 1 page (recto only). Fine (staple holes in the upper left corner). To Mr. Anderson: "Thanks for your letter. Bleiben*, oddly enough, was our Vicar in the Oxford suburb where I live when not in College; his death was quite unexpected, and he will be much missed. I think I explained when we met why nothing can make it possible for me to go abroad at the present; I am chained to a bedside by obvious and unanswerable duty. It will be distressing if people think I'm standing out for higher fees! Thanks very much for the cutting. . ." During World War I, Lewis had lost his best friend and had promised to take care of his friend's mother in case he died at war. Lewis eventually took his friend's mother in. This made it difficult to make appearances, giving the outward impression that he was holding out for higher appearance fees. *The Rev. Thomas Eric Bleiben (1903-1947), Vicar of Holy Trinity, Headington Quarry. Lewis found him too much of a liberal (see footnote 108, page 272 in Collected Letters). This letter is not in The Collected Letters.

        Photographs]: 1940s Amateur Nudes from Philadelphia: Photo Album, Slides, Negatives (processed film)

      - A collection of clearly amateur nude photographs of one woman, circa 1947-1948. A large group of images of a woman, unidentified; anecdotally found in Philadelphia. One can safely speculate that they were taken by her husband or a regular companion, during several sessions in different rooms or locations, and involving various erotic scenarios, presumably over a year or more. The archive consists of:1. Photo album: Blank album with 70 mounted photographs. Mostly full or partial nudes, largely in a domestic setting, including in a bath tub, on a bed, on a couch, stripping, etc. Different sizes, different qualities in keeping with home development, most are very good. The album has clearly been pillaged or "curated" (whether by the subject or a subsequent owner is unclear) with a significant amount of images lacking (most of those, we think, might be represented in the slides and negatives that accompany the archive).2. Slides: 102 slides of the same subject in two metal slide boxes (one of the boxes is damaged, although the slides are largely very good or better). Slides are in both metal and cardboard frames.3. Loose negatives. Approximately 150-200 loose negatives depicting the same subject. Near fine. Negatives also depict some images not in the photo album including several images outside, and one depicting sexual activity with a man.4. Eight contemporary metal film canisters containing negatives of 35mm Super XX film, mostly cut into small strips of two images each depicting the same subject, perhaps a total of approximately 250-300 negative images.An interesting compilation of nude images depicting a single subject and informing how erotic relationships evolved in the dark ages before polaroids and cell phone cameras changed everything.

        Steeple Bush

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1947 Decorated by Loren MacIver. First edition, limited issue of 751 numbered copies. Signed by Frost on the limitation page. Publisher's tan linen cloth and gray-green paper boards, with MacIver's flower illustration stamped in gilt to the front board, printed on white watermarked wove paper; housed in the publisher's green-gray slipcase. A fine copy; in a near fine slipcase, with just some light soiling and minor wear. A very clean and bright copy. Crane A30. Steeple Bush is a collection of Robert Frost's poetry, and it includes "Directive," "One Step Backward Taken," "Home Burial," "The Gift Outright," "An Old Man's Winter Night," and "A Young Birch," among others. Published well after he had established his reputation as one of the best living American poets, Steeple Bush reflects the work of a mature poet who possesses more of a jaded wisdom than his youthful self. However, as Randall Jarrell declares in his 1947 review for The New York Times, "no other living poet has written so well about the actions of ordinary men." Indeed, he avers that "anyone should know this after reading" the poems in the collection. This first edition of Steeple Bush was issued in a limited edition of 751 copies in April 1947 and was followed by a trade issue (the "first impression from the limited edition plates") in the same month, issued in a much larger print run of 7,600 copies.. Illus. by MacIver, Loren. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Street Corner Society

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1947. Reprint. Cloth. Good +/good +. Stated fourth impression of this seminal volume on ethnic studies in an "Eastern City" (Boston). The books subtitle reads "Corner Gangs, Racket and Political Organizations - Their Leadership and Control in an Italian-American Slum". 284 pp. Author's first book. Reprinted many times, the book has become a standard college text, but when first published in 1943, it received little notice. Wikipedia has given over an entire page to this work. Prior owner bookplate afixed to the front free endpaper. Small stamp to same page. Prior owner name sticker afixed to the inside front pastedown and that same individual has printed his last name on the bottom of the page textblock. The remainder of the book is quite clean and presentable in decorated green cloth binding. The dustwrapper is clipped at front flap and has several chips and paper loss about the edges of the wrapper, especially at the top of the spine area. Despite these flaws, the book presents very well. Scarce early edition of a classic in the field of sociology.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      New York, 26. VI. 1947. - An den steirischen Schriftsteller und Journalisten Rudolf List (1901-1979). - „[.] Ein Aufsatz über meine Arbeiten in Ihrer Austria wäre von großem Wert für mich. Nur weiß ich nicht, wie das praktisch zu machen wäre. Viele - und gerade meine besten Sachen, die ich noch in Wien geschrieben habe, sind aus wohlbekannten Gründen unbekannt geblieben [.]. Den Mahler Aufsatz werde ich mit größter Freude schreiben, nur bitte ich um Geduld. Erst muss ich die neue Partitur vom Hals schaffen, dann meine Erinnerungen wecken [.]. Die zwei Briefe von seiner Hand gehören zu meinen kostbarsten Schätzen, sind aber inhaltlich bedeutungslos [.]. 1903 wurde Weigl Mitglied in der ‚Vereinigung schaffender Tonkünstler‘, die er gemeinsam mit Zemlinsky und Schönberg gründete und deren Ehrenpräsident Gustav Mahler war [.]". - Weigl „studierte in Wien Klavier und Komposition, unter anderem bei Alexander von Zemlinsky, und wirkte nach seiner Promotion in Wien als Lehrer am Konservatorium und an der Universität. Der jüdische Komponist wanderte 1938 in die USA aus und erwarb 1943 dort die Staatsbürgerschaft. Er war ein hochgeschätzter Musikpädagoge und besonders bei Musikern respektierter Komponist. Er schuf sechs Sinfonien, weitere Werke für Orchester, Instrumentalkonzerte, Vokal- und Kammermusik. ‚Ich habe Dr. Weigl immer als einen der besten Komponisten dieser alten Generation betrachtet; einer derer, die die glanzvolle Wiener Tradition weiterführen. Er bewahrt zweifellos die alte Haltung jenes musikalischen Geistes, welcher einen der besten Teile der Wiener Kultur darstellt.‘ Diese Worte schrieb Arnold Schönberg im Juni 1938 in einem Empfehlungsschreiben über Karl Weigl, der sich anschickte, seine unsicher gewordene Heimat zu verlassen. Karl Weigl, der vor allem in den Zwischenkriegsjahren als Komponist und Lehrer einen bedeutenden Anteil am Wiener Musikleben innehatte, muss wohl zur großen Gruppe der ‚Entwurzelten‘ gezählt werden, die, durch die Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten zur Emigration gezwungen, in ihrer neuen Heimat nie mehr an die Erfolge ihrer Vergangenheit anknüpfen konnten" (Wikipedia). - Knickspuren. - Beiliegend eine kleine Broschüre (8 S. inkl. Umschlag) über den Komponisten mit einem Portrait u. Daten zu Leben und Werk. - ge Gewicht in Gramm: 350 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mohandas K. Gandhi Signed Photograph.

      Photograph signed on the lower center, "Sincerely MKGandhi," It is a bust portrait showing him looking downward. The photograph measures 4.75 inches by 3.5 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 12 inches by 13 inches. Photographs signed by Gandhi are rare. Mohandas K. Gandhi was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He is unofficially called the Father of the Nation. Gandhi's vision of an independent India based on religious pluralism, however, was challenged in the early 1940s by a new Muslim nationalism which was demanding a separate Muslim homeland carved out of India. Eventually, in August 1947, Britain granted independence, but the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two dominions, a Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan. As many displaced Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs made their way to their new lands, religious violence broke out, especially in the Punjab and Bengal. Eschewing the official celebration of independence in Delhi, Gandhi visited the affected areas, attempting to provide solace. In the months following, he undertook several fasts unto death to stop religious violence. The last of these, undertaken on January 1948 when he was 78, also had the indirect goal of pressuring India to pay out some cash assets owed to Pakistan. Some Indians thought Gandhi was too accommodating. Among them was Nathuram Godse, a Hindu nationalist, who assassinated Gandhi on January 30, 1948. Gandhi's birthday, October 2, is commemorated in India as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Nonviolence.
