        Raskolnikov och Sonja.

      Sketch for cover illustration to Vol. II of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, signed ''TB'' at lower left corner. 16x13,5 cm. Different techniques, for instance pencil and watercolour. Pinholes in margins. Two small sketches of heads on the verso. The book has been published twice with Billman's woodcuts, in 1948 and in 1980. After the first publication he continued to make sketches for this novel, which had made a great impression on him, and the second publication contained several new woodcuts, as well as a coloured woodcut for each of the two covers. In lower margin of this sketch he has made some comments in pencil, for instance: ''Handen för lång! Flytta den!!'' [The hand is too long! Move it!!] The sketch has another athmosphere and is more colourful than the printed version. The Swedish woodcut artist, book illustrator and fresco painter Torsten Billman (1909-1989) grew up in Kullavik on the Swedish west coast, went to sea at 17 as an ordinary seaman, and again at 18 as a stoker; an occupation which he kept for a couple of forming years, combining the hard labour under deck with visits to seaports of the Mediterranean and the Far East. During the 30s he studied book illustration and wood engraving in Gothenburg, and returned to the Gothenburg art school in the 70s, then as an appreciated teacher. An avid reader, he found much inspiration in the works of Strindberg, Balzac, 19th century Russian literature, Harry Martinson, and Gunnar Ekelöf; and it is the illustrations for Balzac's Cousin Pons, Dostoyevski's Crime and Punishment and Martinson's Nomad on which his reputation as a book illustrator chiefly rests

        The Second World War, Volume I, The Gathering Storm, a pre-publication galley proof with comments

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. 1st Edition. Paperback. Good. This exciting find is a galley proof of the first volume of Churchill's history of the Second World War. This offers a snapshot of Churchill's masterwork being prepared for publication. This is the only such galley proof we have seen on the market in memory. In July 1945, so near the victory he did so much to secure, Churchill lost the premiership to the Labour Party. Writing his history of the Second World War consumed most of the years he spent as Leader of the Opposition, before his second premiership in late 1951. Seldom, if ever, has a statesman had such singular ability to both make and write history. The sixth and final volume of The Second World War would not be published until 1953 - the year Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. A galley proof is an early printing of a work, usually produced after a manuscript has been typeset but before proofreading. They are typically printed for the author, editors, and proof readers. They are normally produced on long sheets of paper with wide margins (for comments) and bound inexpensively. While galley proofs can also be used by publicists or sent to book reviewers, their primary purpose is the editing process. More polished Advance Reading Copies (ARC) come later, more closely resemble the final published form, and are typically produced in greater numbers for circulation to reviewers. This galley proof of The Gathering Storm measures 12 by 7 inches and bulks 1.5 inches. It is produced on long, single-sided sheets, untrimmed at the top and bottom edges and unpaginated. The manuscript is bound in plain brown paper with a simple title and author label printed black on white paper affixed to the front cover. It is printed with wide blank side margins, with the text occupying a centered column 4.25 inches wide. Textual differences between the U.S. (true first) edition and the later British first edition attest that this is a U.S. edition galley. This galley was evidently produced early enough in the pre-publication process that it lacks the preface, table of contents, acknowledgements, moral of the work, theme of the volume, and maps and diagrams of the published text. The text appears to closely conform to that of the published version. This copy bears extensive comments which appear likely to have been made by an early stage reviewer, whose identity is unknown, as is the precise date of publication. However, we know that "The Gathering Storm" title was not selected until at least early February 1948, with publication of the U.S. edition on 21 June 1948. The extensive margin comments appear consistent with those of a reviewer than those of an editor or proofreader. The reader's comments and underlining are in pencil, extending 29 pages into the text. A total of 17 pages bear notation and/or comments, these being pages 1, 3, 4, 6, 9-11, 14, 15, 20, 22-24, 26-29. All notations appear consistent in style and handwriting, indicating that they were made by a single reader. Several margin comments either dissent with or augment certain points of history addressed in the narrative, particularly with respect to the deficiencies and draconian demands of the Treaty of Versailles. The reader shows detailed knowledge of events, as comments sometimes name specific individuals. Moreover, there is some indication that the comments may be those of an American reader, since there is sharp criticism of England both expressed and implied, as well positive comment about Wilson; however, this is interpretative speculation. Overall condition is very good given the perishable nature of such an item. The brown paper binding is square, tight, clean, and complete, though dog-eared at the corners and with some wear and separation at the spine ends. The contents are clean and bright with some wear at the page edges of the first few dozen pages of text, as well as the final few pages. A hint of spotting is confined to the text block fore edge.
