        Midnite Show.Original painting, oil on canvas, 30 ¼ x 24 inches, signed lower right with the artist's initials, as was his custom

      (No date) - An arresting image of Harlequin standing alone on stage in the glare of a bright circular spotlight. A painting of a "Jester", dating from 1947, is in the Tennessee Williams collection at the Humanities Research Center in Austin, Texas.Provenance: The Family of Edmund J. Perret, Rye, New York.Edmund Perret was a personal friend of Tennessee Williams, and their relationship is documented in Lyle Leverich's bookTom: The Unknown Tennessee Williams. Aside from the painting's obvious homoerotic considerations, the theatrical context enhances the psychology of the picture with the figure, standing alone in the spotlight, perhaps reflecting something of the playwright's own vulnerability.

        Het Achterhuis

      Amsterdam: Uitgeverij, Contact,, 1947. Dagboekbrieven van 12 Juni 1942 ? 1 Augusten 1944. Octavo. Original speckled grey boards, titles to front board reversed out of a brown ground and to spine in brown. Portrait frontispiece, two photographic plates, a plan and two facsimiles of Frank's handwriting. A little rubbed, joints started at ends, front free endpaper verso separating from text block at head, text toned as usual, a good copy. First edition, first impression; the true first edition of 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," and her book was included in New York Public Library's Books of the Century Exhibition, being one of eighteen titles in the section dedicated to "War, Holocaust, Totalitarianism." But her achievement is both wider and far more profound than this, as Roger Rosenblatt wrote in his piece on her for Time Magazine's Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century: "The passions the book ignites suggest that everyone owns Anne Frank, that she has risen above the Holocaust, Judaism, girlhood and even goodness and become a totemic figure of the modern world - the moral individual mind beset by the machinery of destruction, insisting on the right to live and question and hope for the future of human beings ? The reason for her immortality was basically literary. She was an extraordinarily good writer, for any age, and the quality of her work seemed a direct result of a ruthlessly honest disposition" (Time, 14 June 1999).

        L'écho des Fantaisies

      [ca. 1947?]. 60 original silver print photographs by Victor Grandpierre, mounted on bristol boards with rounded, gilt edges. 29 x 22 cm. The images depict somewhat surrealistic arrangements of decorative household objects, each illustrating a poem by Louise de Vilmorin, printed in facsimile of her manuscript. The decorator Victor Grandpierre became best-known for his design for the first Christian Dior boutique, at 30, Avenue Montaigne, which introduced Dior's first collection at about the same time this edition was published. No other collections of his photographs appear to have been published. One of 255 sets. OCLC records only three institutional holdings. The Bristol boards are, inevitably, curled. In the two original portfolio boxes, which are worn. With an autograph letter from Vilmorin dated Dec. 31, 1947 to Germain Lecureur*, business partner of her brothers. *From the Yad Vashem web site "At the beginning of World War II, the seven members of the Meller family, originally Polish Jews, were living in Blanc-Mesnil, near Paris. Blanc-Mesnil was very close to the Drancy camp, where French Jews were taken, pending deportation to the east. From their house, the Mellers watched the construction of the fence of this infamous detention camp. M. Meller, a loyal and skilled flourmill technician, worked for two French brothers, Germain and Camille Lecureur, who valued and befriended him. Meller was also on good terms with the de Vilmorin brothers, the Lecureurs' partners. In August 1942, when the Lecureurs discovered an impending police roundup of Jews in the Blanc-Mesnil area, they feared that the Mellers would be arrested and deported. They moved the husband, wife, and three of their children to Verrières-le-Buisson, about twenty-five kilometers from Paris, where the de Vilmorins lived. They provided the two oldest Meller boys, aged seventeen and twenty, with forged identity cards and moved them to two farms near Paris, where they worked for seven months, changing residence often because the gendarmes frequently inspected farms. They finally found safe shelter in Verrières. For two years, until the liberation, the Meller family remained in Verrières-le-Buisson, with the assistance of the de Vilmorin brothers. On June 17, 1990, Yad Vashem recognized Germain and Camille Lecureur and Roger and Olivier de Vilmorin as Righteous Among the Nations."

        L'espèce humaine

      - La cité universelle, Paris 1947, 14,5x18,5cm, broché. - Edizione per il quale non è stato redatto carta di grandi dimensioni, copia con una buona copertura. Molto raro autografo firmato Robert Antelme a Francesco Ambrière. "Non c'è nessuna specie umana, non vi è una specie umana. Questo perché siamo uomini come loro che le SS in ultima analisi, impotenti davanti a noi.". Questo lavoro fondamentale sull'esperienza di nazisti campi era la terza e ultima pubblicazione della casa editrice effimera fondata da Marguerite Duras e Robert Antelme, il marito 1940-1946. Inosservato in questa prima versione confidenziale, solo poche copie sono state vendute, è stato messo in vendita l'anno successivo sotto nuove coperture da Robert Marin, il libro soffre la concorrenza dei tanti scritti sull'argomento sono apparsi subito dopo la guerra. Eppure, come riferito da F. Lebelley "in un momento in cui le storie abbondano, il potere speciale di quel libro, una prima sobrietà, sconvolge come scrittore fondazione libro di testo che ha anche preso riconosce Duras. , "l'ampia letteratura." Robert Antelme mai scrivere altro. Nonostante i riconoscimenti e onori, la specie umana sarà solo il lavoro di una vita. " (In Duras, o il peso di una piuma.) Grazie all'intervento di Albert Camus, il libro riappare dieci anni più tardi nel 1957 da Gallimard e poi sa una più ampia diffusione. Pertanto, questo libro è parte della storia della letteratura come uno degli scritti più importanti per la riflessione dolorosa ma necessaria sui campi di concentramento e la condizione umana. E 'dopo di lui che scrittori come Jorge Semprun suo amico inizieranno un nuovo approccio alla scrittura dei campi impossibili. Nel 1947 Antelme ha annunciato nella sua prefazione "solo tornando, abbiamo ridotto la nostra memoria con noi, la nostra esperienza di vita insieme e ci siamo sentiti un frenetico desiderio di raccontare così com'è. E nei primi giorni, però, sembrava impossibile colmare la distanza che abbiamo trovato tra linguaggio e abbiamo avuto questa esperienza [...] Come rassegnarsi a non cercare di spiegare come avevamo venire qui? eppure eravamo lì. Eppure era impossibile. Basta iniziare a dirci che eravamo soffocante. Per noi stessi, quello che avevamo da dire, allora abbiamo cominciato a sembrare inimmaginabile. " Torna un po 'incrinato e con piccole lacune alla testa e piedi, un piccolo mancanza nell'angolo in alto della prima piatta colpito anche un piccolo strappo insignificanti, bella copia. Raro e significativo copia, assente dalla maggior parte delle biblioteche nazionali e internazionali, tra cui il BNF. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers, exemplaire comportant les bonnes couvertures. Très rare envoi autographe signé de Robert Antelme à Francis Ambrière. "Il n'y a pas d'espèces humaines, il y a une espèce humaine. C'est parce que nous sommes des hommes comme eux que les SS seront en définitive impuissants devant nous.". Cet ouvrage fondamental sur l'expérience des Camps nazis fut la troisième et derniere publication de l'éphémère maison d'édition fondée par Marguerite Duras et Robert Antelme, son mari de 1940 à 1946. Passé inaperçu lors de cette première parution confidentielle, seuls quelques exemplaires furent vendus, il fut remis en vente l'année suivante sous de nouvelles couvertures par Robert Marin, l'ouvrage souffrira de la concurence des nombreux écrits sur le sujet parus immédiatement après guerre. Pourtant, comme le relate F. Lebelley : "à une époque où les récits abondent, la puissance particulière de ce livre-là, d'une sobriété première, bouleverse tel un texte fondateur. Livre d'écrivain aussi qui a pris, reconnaît Duras, "le large de la littérature". Robert Antelme n'en écrira jamais d'autre. Malgré les éloges et les honneurs, L'Espèce humaine restera l'oeuvre unique d'une vie." (in Duras, ou le poids d'une plume.) Grâce à l'intervention d'Albert Camus, le livre reparaît dix ans plus tard, en 1957 chez Gallimard et connaît alors une diffusion plus large. Dès lors, ce livre s'inscrit dans l'histoire littéraire comme un des plus importants écrits affrontant la douloureuse mais nécessaire réflexion sur les camps de concentration et la condition humaine. C'est à sa suite que des écrivains tel que son ami Jorge Semprun pourront commencer une nouvelle approche de l'impossible écriture des camps. Dès 1947, Antelme annonçait dans son avant-propos « nous revenions juste, nous ramenions avec nous notre mémoire, notre expérience toute vivante et nous éprouvions un désir frénétique de la dire telle quelle. Et, dès les premiers jours cependant, il nous paraissait impossible de combler la distance que nous découvrions entre le langage dont nous disposions et cette expérience [...] Comment nous résigner à ne pas tenter d'expliquer comment nous en étions venus là ? Nous y étions encore. Et cependant c'était impossible. A peine commencions-nous à raconter, que nous suffoquions. A nous-mêmes, ce que nous avions à dire commençait alors à nous paraître inimaginable. » Dos légèrement fendillé et comportant de petits manques en tête et en pied, un minuscule manque au coin supérieur du premier plat également affecté d'une petite déchirure sans conséquence, agréable exemplaire. Rarissime et important exemplaire, absent de la plupart des bibliothèques Nationales et internationales, notamment de la BNF.

        Field Guide of Birds of the West Indies.

      New York, NY: Macmillan, 1947. FIRST MACMILLAN PRINTING. Octavo, pp.xii; 257; [1], blank. With colour plate illustrations and line drawings by Poole. Publisher's brown cloth titled in black to spine and front board, map endpapers, original dust-jacket.Book is very good, faint evidence of an old bookplate; jacket a little soiled and torn, price-clipped to foot but showing $3.75 to top of flap. A very good copy. The acclaimed work by the ornithologist James Bond, whose name was famously appropriated for spy fiction's most celebrated hero. The original edition was published by the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, in a different format. This eye-catching edition 'has been completely rewritten in a popular style', and is certainly the printing which influenced Fleming; when writing his debut novel in 1952, this version of the book was on his shelf and not the obscure original work; Fleming had purchased land and built a Jamaican home in 1945 and, according to Ben McIntyre, (and re-affirmed by Fleming throughout his life), while pondering his character Fleming 'simply lifted the name from his bookshelves, his eye having alighted upon 'Field Guide to [sic] the Birds of the West Indies' by James Bond, the standard reference book published by MacMillan in 1947'. Due to the connection, the availability of this book has simply dried up in recent years- whilst reprints may be obtained, this 1947 first edition is rather scarce, with no copy appearing in book searches at the time of writing.

        DARK PASSAGE (1947)

      Warner Brothers 1947 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Agnes Moorehead, Bruce Bennett, Tom d'Andrea; dir.: Delmer Daves. A much darker journey into the film noir realm for Bogart and Bacall than their early, wildly successful BIG SLEEP, this time from a lurid David Goodis novel of a man (Bogart) wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife, rescued by a concerned courtroom spectator (Bacall) and who must change his notorious face through back-door plastic surgery in order to find the real killer. One of the truly great films of this now-revered genre, as well as one of the best period films set in and depicting San Francisco. Bogart hid is face from camera for more than half of the film, something which did not please WB head Jack Warner! The film fell off at the box office as it was released right at the time that the Bogart's received negative press because of their support for the Committee for the First Amendment during the heated House Un-American Activities Committee hearings.

        Le Surréalisme en 1947

      [Paris]: Maeght, 1947. 139, [1] p., 1 l; 241 x 207 mm. (9 1/2 x 8 1/16 in.) First edition. One of 999 numbered deluxe copies. Original wrappers, in fine condition, in the chemise with Duchamp's original Ready-made painted latex foam breast adhered to a piece of black velvet, and publisher's slipcase,with the "Prière de toucher" label. In the catalogue there also are five color lithographs, by Victor Brauner, Max Ernst, Jacques Herold, Wifredo Lam and Joan Miro, five etchings, one in color by Hans Bellmer, Marcel Jean, Maria, Yves Tanguy and Dorothy Tanning, two woodcuts by Jean Arp, and twelve lithographs in black, by Brigogni, Calder, Capacci, E. Van Damme, J. De Diego, Donati, D. Hare, J. Lamba, Matta, K. Sage, Tanguy, Toyen. With the inserted 4-page leaflet catalogue of the exhibition in the order of display. The breast multiple has been treated by a professional conservator, and, although hardened, is in very good condition, the catalogue in fine condition, the cardboard slipcase with only slight wear. Duchamp and his collaborator Enrico Donati ordered 999 falsies to be used for the multiple, but it seems that far fewer copies of the catalogue actually had the object affixed, (some remained in Donati's estate and have from time-to-time been sold to substitute for damaged or missing examples). Complete original examples are rare.

        Signed Yearbook

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. The Retrospect yearbook, dating from Armstrong's senior year at Blume High School in Wapakoneta, Ohio in 1947, hardcover, 8 x 11, 88 pages. Armstrong's senior portrait is at the top of page 12, and signed in ink under his activities, "Neil Armstrong." Among the activities he participated in during his three years at school are "Band (2,3,4) Vice-President 4," and "Student Council 3,4." Armstrong is pictured an addition six times in the yearbook, two in the band (one with the other officers), two for Student Council (one with the other officers), and two with the Senior Hiâ??Y, whose information reads, in part: "Clean Livingâ??self-discipline in everyday life, Clean Speechâ??decency in conversation, Clean Scholarshipâ??honesty in school, Clean Sportmanshipâ??fairness in athletics." In fine condition, with inside pages detached from covers, loose front hinge, expected handling wear, and light wear and soiling to covers. <br><br><br />Twenty-two years before his name would be etched into the history books, young Mr. Armstrong was associated with less-stellarâ??but no less noteworthyâ??pursuits such as band and student council. At age 16, he graduated 11th in his class of 78 students. His dedication to such creeds as those endorse by the Senior Hiâ??Y, including "clean living," "self-discipline," and "decency," would go on to serve him well in lifeâ??especially in the Apollo 11 moon landing and the demands of a post-NASA life as a living legend. Extremely uncommon in such early material!

        L'espèce humaine

      The first edition, of which there were no large paper copies - this copy with the right covers.Small tears, not serious, to the margins of covers and to foot and head of spine."There are no human beings, there is just humankind. It's because we are people just like them that the SS will be forever powerless before us." This fundamental work on the experience of the Nazi concentration camps was the third and last book published by the fleeting publishing house established by Marguerite Duras and Robert Antelme, her husband from 1940 to 1946.This first - unadvertised - appearance of the work sank without trace, selling barely a few copies. It was reissued the following year with a different cover by Robert Marin, but nonetheless suffered stiff competition from a number of other works on the subject that appeared immediately after the war. Nevertheless, as F. Lebelley notes, "at a time when there were many such accounts around, the power of this book - possessed of a singular sobriety - hit you with the force of a seminal text." The book is the work of an author who, according to Duras, "dove right into literature. This was Antelme's only book. Despite the praise and the prizes, L'Espèce humaine will remain the only work he'll ever write" (in: Duras, ou le poids d'une plume). The work was re-published, thanks to Albert Camus' efforts, ten years later (in 1957) by Gallimard and enjoyed a much wider circulation. Since then, the book has entered the history of literature as one of the most important works dealing with the painful necessity of thinking about the concentration camps and the human condition. It was thanks to this book that writers such as Antelme's friend Jorge Semprun could begin a new approach to the impossible task of writing about the camps. From 1947 onwards, Antelme noted in his foreword to the book: "we only just came back, bringing with us our memories, our experience still so fresh, and were filled with a frenetic desire to tell it as it was. But, from the very beginning, it seemed to us impossible to bridge the gap we faced between the words we had and this experience...How to keep ourselves from trying to explain how we'd found ourselves there? We were there still; and yet it proved impossible. Hardly had we begun our account, we found ourselves suffocating. What we had to say started to seem unimaginable then, even to ourselves."A rare and important copy, not in most national and international libraries, most notably the French National Library.
