        The Second World War

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd.,, 1948–54. 6 volumes, octavo (207 × 131 mm) Bound in near contemporary red half morocco on matched boards by Maurin - miniscule ink-stamp top corner verso of the front free endpapers - flattened bands with gilt foliate roll forming 6 compartments with single fillet panel, title in the second and author in the fourth, floral spray corner-pieces to the rest, single gilt rule to the spine and corner edges, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Maps and diagrams, some folding. Minimal shelf-wear, internally clean and bright, a very handsome set. First editions, first impressions of Churchill's masterpiece in a highly attractive fine binding. Undoubtedly the single most important historical account of the Second World War. Max Beloff observed that there was no statesman of the twentieth century "whose retrospective accounts of the great events in which he has taken part have so dominated subsequent historical thinking." A man who had always primarily made his living by his pen, Churchill was the only major war leader to give an authoritative account of the conflict, and his ringing phrases seeped into the collective memory. As J. H. Plumb noted in his essay in A. J. P. Taylor's Churchill: Four Faces and the Man "Churchill the historian lies at the very heart of all historiography of the Second World War, and will always remain there… [we still] move down the broad avenues which he drove through war's confusion and complexity."

        LENINGRAD DURING THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR (18 Woodcuts in Portfolio)

      1948. Original Wrappers. Folio. A prominent Russian Jewish artist and illustrator, Yudovin typically depicted life of Jewish township and people in both Soviet and imperial Russia; this suite of engravings was an unusual departure for Yudovin near the end of his life as he passed the Second World War in Leningrad. Scenes of besieged Leningrad are powerfully rendered in these prints. The suite is complete with 18 engravings--a few with some marginal spotting (the first is particularly heavy, but limited to the margins)--laid in to a printed portfolio with a single bifolium introduction with list of contents; the text is in Russian; this is quite an uncommon suite; digital images can be made available upon request.

A characteristically blunt letter from the 33rd President of the United States, in defense of his cabinet appointee, John W. Snyder, who was a close personal friend: "- I appreciated very highly your letter of the twenty-third in regard to your visit with the Secretary of the Treasury at Shreveport. I've always known the Secretary for what he is but he was misrepresented by the columnists and press people here. The regular people are just beginnng to find out what a pack of lies that was -"

      CLAUDE IMBERT 1948 - R320036627: 66 pages illustrées de nombreuses copies de reproductions en coulerus et noir et blanc hors texte et un frontispice en couleurs + GRAVURES (EAUX FORTES AVEC SUITES ET ETATS) sous serpentes protéges d'une chemise cartonnée souple - Exemplaire VELIN DE RIVES N°III SIGNE PAR CLAUDE IMBERT, L'EDITEUR / emboitage en carton rigide (abimé sur une tranche) muet . PREFACE DE PIERRE ORLAN / Armand NAKACHE est le né le 11 janvier 1894, Officier de la Légion d'honneur, Chevalier des Arts et Lettres, membre fondateur du Salon Pomuliste et de la société de Gravure "Le trait", Président honoraire du salon des indépendants, Président honorarie des Peintres-Graveurs "Le Trait" - Grande médaille vermeil de la Ville de Paris pour l'ensemble de son oeuvre, en 1960. Pls de quarante oeuvres dans les Musées (France et Etranger), dont el Musée National d'art Moderne a Paris et le Musée de la Ville de Paris. etc. / Armand Nakache ne recherchait ni les honneurs ni la gloire, ne vivant en fait que pour sa peinture, intensément et sans concessions.Nakache n'a pas voulu plaire mais plutôt montrer avec dérision et violence l'Homme dans tous ses états. Il a été avant tout le chantre de l'Expressionnisme en France, un domaine si injustement boudé par le public qui a été plus attiré les charmes de la peinture classique, de l'Impressionnisme, du post-Impressionnisme ou même par les mystères du cubisme. Il a opté pour la réalité de la vie en faisant appel à l'hallucinant, le burlesque ou la violence, et ce sans aucune tricherie. Dur et tendre à la fois, il sait nous émouvoir profondément par le côté fantastique qu'il a donné à ses oeuvres, flirtant parfois avec Jérome Bosch, Breughel, Goya, Daumier ou Rouault. Armand Nakache, tourmenté par l'horreur de la guerre, certainement irrité par l'insouciance de ses contemporains, a voulu à travers son œuvre nous laisser un message, une sorte de mise en garde contre les errements de notre société. Dérangeant et attachant à la fois, Armand Naka [Attributes: Soft Cover]
