        Kriath Kodesh [call to Yeshiva students]

      1947 - (JUDAICA""ZIONISM). Kriath Kodesh [Call to Yeshiva Students]. (Jerusalem): Kislev, 1947-48. Broadside (measures 10 by 13-1/2 inches), printed on recto. $1800.1947 Jerusalem Orthodox broadside against "the Zionists who wish to uproot the Torah," illustrative of the conflicts among Zionists and other factions in Jerusalem just prior to the creation of the state of Israel.This broadside states that it is the scholars of Torah who are the Neturei Karta, "the protectors of the city." "The forces which were contending over the nature of the new society were divided into three broad groups". Socialist Zionists, known as the Histadrut". middle-class elements [anti-Socialist Revisionists]". and the Orthodox, who could not imagine a Jewish presence in the land which did not exemplify the values and practices of the religious tradition" (Encyclopaedia Judaica). These three factions came to maturity as the Zionist settlement in Palestine increased tenfold, from roughly 60,000 in 1919 to 600,000 in the 1940s. This broadside goes on to claim, "Whomever has any relationship with the Zionists-even enlisting in the Haganah-becomes a partner in actions against Judaism." "[Orthodox elements] were dedicated to the building of an institutional power base for religious Jews, so that they could compete as equals with the other groups and provide equal opportunity in the new country for those who shared the Orthodox religious faith. This body of opinion was deeply concerned that the total temper of the Jewish community should not be secularized. They did not want to become a religious ghetto in a non-religious Jewish society, and they believed that it was their duty to bring religion even to those who opposed it". The struggle between the Socialist and the middle-class elements in Israel's society has been muted in the generation of statehood, for a mixed economy now prevails. The conflict over religion and its relationship to public life has, if anything, become sharper within the sovereign parliamentary life of the Jewish state" (Encyclopaedia Judaica). Text in Hebrew. Faint fold lines. Fine condition. Scarce.

        Scott-King's Modern Europe

      Chapman & Hall, 1947 - First edition; 8vo; original cloth and John Piper designed dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "from Evelyn Waugh March 1947." Bookplate of historian Hugh Trevor-Roper to the front pastedown. It is interesting that this copy belonged to Trevor-Roper as Waugh disliked him intensely, referring to him variously as "that blackguard" and "the demon don". In a letter of 1950 Waugh described his writing as 'vulgar'. Their most famous public spat was in the pages of the New Statesman in 1954 over relatively obscure points concerning the history of the Roman Catholic church in England. Waugh thought the appointment of Trevor- Roper as Regius Professor at Oxford as an insult to English Catholics. Waugh does not name the recipient of the inscription (he normally did), and it is interesting to speculate as to whether Waugh presented a copy of this work to a figure for whom he held a strong dislike. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with minor creasing to foot, lower panel and flaps a little spotted. A superb copy of this title with an interesting association.

        TALES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC

      The Macmillan Company, New York 1947 - Michener's first book and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy with a very early INSCRIPTION dated 27 May 1947 SIGNED by the author: "Dear Jim,/The first serious writing I/did came your way. This one/had a better fortune, thanks to the/passing of time and some millions of/acres of the Pacific. It's been a treat knowing you./Jim Michener." We can only speculate who Jim was, but obviously he was of some importance to Michener very early in his career. Housed in a handsome and recent navy blue half morocco clamshell box. The brittleness of the cheap paper, found in every copy we have seen, is much in evidence with a very short tear at the top margin running through nearly every page of the book. The covers also have short tears near the spine at the top and bottom. The upper front corner is bumped, and a darker shade at the very head of the spine indicates that a dustwrapper was present on this book for quite some time. All that is left is the rear flap which is laid in. Good copy only, but a great, early inscription and housed in a Fine box [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Nightmare Alley (Original screenplay for the 1947 film, producer Darryl F Zanuck's working copy)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1947. Final Shooting script for the 1947 film. Copy belonging to studio head Darryl F. Zanuck, with his holograph pencil initials on the front wrapper and holograph pencil edits and changes throughout. Also included are two color tinted studio photographs from the film. Based on Gresham's 1946 novel, a dispassionate descent into the world of the carnival sideshows, based largely on the author's own experiences and investigations. Tyrone Power plays against type as a devious swindler who works his way from a traveling carnival to high society, only to inevitably fall down again. Filmed with a larger budget than most film noirs due to Power's stardom, the film was initially a flop but has since become regarded as a classic of the genre. Shot on location in Illinois. Beige titled wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 193 and production No. 2317, dated April 17, 1947. Title page present, dated April 17, 1947, noted as Shooting Final, with credits for screenwriter Furthman and novelist Graham. 168 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 165. Mimeographed. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus bound with internally with three gold brads. Grant US. Lentz II. Selby US Masterwork. Silver and Ward Classic Noir. Spicer US. Weldon 1983.

        Jail-Bird Jottings: The Impressions of a Singapore Internee

      (Kuala Lumpur, Malaya: The Economy Printers. 1947). First. First (and only) edition. Small square quarto. 84pp., illustrated throughout with reproductions of the author's watercolors (in both black and white, and in color) painted while interned at the Changi prisoner of war camp. Illustrated stiff paper wrappers. Ownership signature of Phyliss White dated in 1948, small tears and some small stains or foxing on the wrappers, a sound, very good copy. Complimentary slip laid in with the letterhead of Malaya House in London.London-born Iris Parfitt was a teacher at the St. George School in Penang at the time Malaya fell to the Japanese (after the War she served for a time as the school's Principal). During the occupation she was an internee at both the Changi and Sime Road Camps. In Changi she was the chairperson of the camp's Entertainment Committee, and "played a key role in staging all kinds of entertainment in the camp. Capitalizing on the variety of ages, races, and nationalities, professions and social backgrounds of the internees she put on magnificent entertainments, that were remembered as a great source of encouragement, joviality and humor." (Michiko Nakahara. "The Civilian Women's Internment Camp in Singapore" in New Perspectives on the Japanese Occupation of Malaya and Singapore 2008). Parfitt's memoir provides one of the the most important eyewitness accounts of daily life in the infamous Japanese internment camps. Her watercolors and sketches, with their accompanying explanatory notes contain an enormous amount of highly detailed observation, and range in tone from the satirical to deeply poignant. Rare. OCLC locates six copies in the U.S. .

Elle fréquente ainsi le milieu cubiste, expose au Salon des Indépendants à partir de 1907 et au salon d'automne. Elle peint alors des portraits, des autoportraits et des groupes de personnages. Amie de Picasso et Derain elle devient la compagne et la muse du poète Guillaume Apollinaire. Après un mariage raté et un exil en Espagne au moment de la guerre elle rentre en France, et devient en quelque sorte une portraitiste du milieu mondain féminin ; son style s'épanouira dans un univers poétique, feutré, aux couleurs douces et pâles; elle excelle dans les portraits de femmes et de jeunes filles comme dans des scènes de la vie les mettant en jeu. Elle illustra également une trentaine d'ouvrages (Gide, Lewis Carroll, etc.) et créa un décor pour les ballets russes. Apollinaire a écrit que " l'art de Marie Laurencin danse comme Salomé entre celui de Picasso et celui de Rousseau ". Son oeuvre et sa vie, étonnamment libre pour l'époque, fascinent toujours beaucoup.

      Type : Eau-forte originale en couleurs Dimensions de l'illustration: 12x18,5cm Dimensions avec les marges: 22x28cm Tirage : 300 exemplaires Papier : vélin pur fil Signature : non signée Etat : très bon Remarque : eau-forte originale réalisée en 1947 pour l'illustration de " La Princesse de Clèves " de Madame de La Fayette, (ref : Monod, 6665) Marie Laurencin (Paris, 1885-1956) étudie à l'Académie Humbert où elle rencontre Georges Braque qui l'introduit auprès des artistes du Bateau-Lavoir. Elle fréquente ainsi le milieu cubiste, expose au Salon des Indépendants à partir de 1907 et au salon d'automne. Elle peint alors des portraits, des autoportraits et des groupes de personnages. Amie de Picasso et Derain elle devient la compagne et la muse du poète Guillaume Apollinaire. Après un mariage raté et un exil en Espagne au moment de la guerre elle rentre en France, et devient en quelque sorte une portraitiste du milieu mondain féminin ; son style s'épanouira dans un univers poétique, feutré, aux couleurs douces et pâles; elle excelle dans les portraits de femmes et de jeunes filles comme dans des scènes de la vie les mettant en jeu. Elle illustra également une trentaine d'ouvrages (Gide, Lewis Carroll, etc.) et créa un décor pour les ballets russes. Apollinaire a écrit que " l'art de Marie Laurencin danse comme Salomé entre celui de Picasso et celui de Rousseau ". Son oeuvre et sa vie, étonnamment libre pour l'époque, fascinent toujours beaucoup.

        [Original Manuscript]: Gillian Benedict

      [Circa 1947]. Two drafts of the original typed manuscript. First draft: 348pp. Final draft: 334pp. The first draft is heavily corrected, both copy edited, and edited for content, presumably by the author; the second draft is clean and with only minor corrections in pencil, although it still retains the author's original title Gillian Benedict. Housed in folders and worn Bobbs-Merrill manila envelopes, the pages are near fine. A romance novel about a woman living in London, desperately battling alcoholism, and spanning the time between the two World Wars. Wadelton was an Irish woman who moved to the U.S. at age twelve, and published at least four books, including at least two that were autobiographical, The Book of Maggie Owen (1941) and Maggie No Doubt (1943); the Gothic ghost story Sarah Mandrake (1946); and Gay, Wild and Free (1949), which seems to be an autobiographical novel, all of them published by Bobbs-Merrill. One of the envelopes bears a pencil notation Gay, Wild and Free, but a comparison with the text of that novel indicates this is an entirely different work. It may be unpublished. In any event a little known novel by a published woman writer. .

        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 aside from a bookplate affixed to the verso of the half title page, which has caused some crinkling; 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.

        A Collection of E J Oxenham Novels

      1966 - London - Collins 1947 - A collection of twenty-five novels by Elsie Jeanette DunkerleyElsie Jeanette Dunkerley (25 November 1880 - 9 January 1960), was an English girls' story writer, who took the name Oxenham as her pseudonym when her first book, Goblin Island, was published in 1907. Her Abbey Series of 38 titles are her best-known and best-loved books. In her lifetime she had 87 titles published and another two have since been published by her niece, who discovered the manuscripts in the early 1990s. She is considered a major figure among girls' story writers of the first half of the twentieth century, being one of the 'Big Three' with Elinor Brent-Dyer and Dorita Fairlie Bruce. Angela Brazil is as well-known - perhaps more so - but did not write her books in series about the same group of characters or set in the same place or school, as did the Big Three.
