        Israel's War of Independence and the Early Days of the IDF

      Israel, 1948-49 58 gelatin silver prints (various sizes, on average 4 x 6 ½ inches), mounted on Bristol paper. Minor wear and stains. Cloth folder. "As a people, our monuments never commemorate victories. They commemorate the names of the fallen. We don't need the Arc de Triomphe; we have Masada, Tel-Hai, and the Warsaw Ghetto - where the battle was lost, but the war of Jewish existence was won." - David Elazar This splendid collection of dramatic photographs documents the activity of the IDF during the second stage of the War of Independence, following the second cease-fire. Subjects include Egyptian prisoners of war in Nitzana during "Horev Operation"; conquest of Uja el-Hafir (Nitzana); Nitzanim; Negba; Medical care of prisoners; Jeep unit of "Shualey Shimshon"; conquest of villages and bombing buildings; plane towards landing; horsemen near Gedera; Metzudat Ko'ach (Nebi Yosha fort); and military ceremonies and parades. These riveting images were made by highly skilled professional photographers documenting the birth of the modern state of Israel. One of the photographs has been identified as by the celebrated military photographer Boris Carmi (1914-2002). It is likely that most of the other photographs were taken by Carmi and other professional photographers working as military photographers during the War of Independence. Provenance: IDF officer (and later convicted spy) Israel Ber (Beer), with a printed and manuscript presentation label in Hebrew: "to Lieutenant Colonel Israel Ber as a souvenir for joint work in the Operations Directorate." Ber served in the IDF as a Lieutenant Colonel during the war and subsequently was a noted authority on the War of Independence. In 1961 he was arrested on suspicion of spying for the USSR, and he was sentenced to fifteen years in prison.

        Kaputt.

      Roma: Aria D'Italia, 1948. Octavo, original wrappers. Inscribed by Curzio Malaparte with a full page inscription on the front free endpaper. In very good condition. Books signed and inscribed by Malaparte are uncommon. "Curzio Malaparte was a disaffected supporter of Mussolini with a taste for danger and high living. Sent by an Italian paper during World War II to cover the fighting on the Eastern Front, Malaparte secretly wrote this terrifying report from the abyss, which became an international bestseller when it was published after the war. Telling of the siege of Leningrad, of glittering dinner parties with Nazi leaders, and of trains disgorging bodies in war-devastated Romania, Malaparte paints a picture of humanity at its most depraved" (New York Times Review of Books). "[Kaputt] is like a report from the interior of Chernobyl. Malaparte had gotten very close to the radioactive core of the Axis Powers and somehow emerged to tell the tale, simultaneously humanizing things and rendering them even more chilling as a result. Required reading for every citizen of the Twentieth Century" (Walter Murch).

Votre lettre de faire-part m'a cependant causé aussi une petite émotion mélancolique, parce que j'ai senti que ce mariage nous poussait, un peu plus, - vous, moi, tous ceux de notre génération, - dans le passé... J'embrasse vos mains avec toute mon affection, déjà si ancienne. Pierre Loti". Notre exemplaire comporte aussi une carte de visite de Claude Farrère agrémentée de quelques mots manuscrits de Pierre Loti qui excuse son ami de n'avoir pu dédicacé cet ouvrage.

        Finnegan's Wake

      Faber and Faber London 1948 - A super copy of the 3rd reprint of the handsome Faber first edition, in a complete and protected unclipped jacket. Near Fine takes into account the age of the book. Wine dark stained top, as required, and a rough cut base to the text block, also required. Binding is a deep red cloth, almost entirely unfaded because it has always been jacketed. Original unclipped price on the jacket, 30 shillings. The publisher, to economise, had the original jacket price machine clipped and updated to the then current price. In 1948 the paper used in books was often still under War Economy conditions I suppose. No owner marks, not ex library. A great and attractive copy of an important book. Tiny signs of its age on the top of the jacket, but no real damage. A handsome production from Faber of a book which, if I can be perconal about it, is one of the undoubted masterpieces of the 20th Century. And let's not overlook the fact that it is also a very funny book. I find one can 'dip' into Finnegan at any time and unravel a page or two, and chortle while doing so. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jeanne d'Arc.

      Amsterdam, G.A. van Oorschot, (1948). Ingenaaid. 56 p. 1e druk. Omslag licht beschadigd.l Uit de bibliotheek van Gerard Kornelis van het Reve, die begin 1949 op de Franse titel met potlood allerlei vermenigvuldigingen en staartdelingen uitvoerde. Vermoedelijk rekende Reve met behulp van deze uitgave uit hoeveel woorden hij nodig had voor de in dezelfde reeks te verschijnen novelle Werther Nieland. Berekeningen als '9,5 woord per regel/ 36 regels per pagina/ 58 pagina's tekst' en 'geschreven: 14 woord per regel/ 50 regels per bladz' leidden uiteindelijk tot de conclusie 'Ik moet dus leveren [...]'.Mooie illustratie van de moeizame totstandkoming van Reve's novelle, die in druk 70 pagina's zou omvatten. Dit vroege document zou niet misstaan in een vitrine van het Gerard Revemuseum in de OBA. In De Vrije Bladen: jaargang 19, schrift 10.Bijgevoegd: REVE, Gerard Werther Nieland. Amsterdam, Van Oorschot, 1949. Ingenaaid. 72 p. 1e druk. Rug minimaal verbruind.De Vrije Bladen, jaargang 21, schrift 3.
