La revue était reprit après la guerre avec le 8e année. - "La Revue Juive de de Genève relève de l'histoire spirituelle du judaïsme, mais elle a aussi sa place dans une histoire de la lutte contre l'antisémitisme ou de l'exil. Fondée par le philosophe et journaliste Josué Jéhouda dans le but de propager l'unité du peuple juif depuis Genève, berceau de la Société des Nations, cette riche revue menuselle parut de 1932 à 1948, à, l'exeption des années de guerre. Elle trouvait son inspiration chez le romancier Albert Cohen, éditeur de la Revue Juive publiée à Paris, et chez le poète André Spire. Elle participait à la lutte contre l'antisémitisme en préconisant avec force un universalisme idéaliste, basé sur la défense spirituelle et culturelle des valeurs juives. Jéhouda tenta de réconcilier la conception individuelle et sociale de la morale au sens que lui avait notamment donné le philosophe Henri Bergson et la relativisation moderne de toutes les valeurs, en définissant le judaïsme comme une entité à la fois religieuse et temporelle. Les personnalités qui s'exprimèrent dans cette revue au service de la défense spirituelle contre l'antisémitisme venaient de tous les horizons géographiques et culturels; parmi elles, Edmond Fleg, Alexandre Hérenger, Max Brod, Lion Feuchtwanger, Hugo Bergmann ou Jakob Klatzkin, mais aussi la direction politique du Congrès juif mondial." (Picard: La Suisse et les juifs. p. 139).

        Typed Letter, signed ("Harold L. Ickes") to Harry Barnard of Chicago, objecting to Barnard's preference for Carl Sandburg over Paul Douglas for the Senate

      Washington, D.C., 1948. One page on personal letterhead. Small pinholees in upper left corner, text unaffected. In brown cloth folder. One page on personal letterhead. Paul Douglas vs. Carl Sandburg for the Senate. Ickes (1874 -1952), former Secretary of the Interior under FDR (and briefly under Truman) and the administrator of the Public Works Administration, grew up in Chicago himself, and after leaving the administration, remained active not only in nationa but in Illinois politics. Here, in a letter to the newspaper columnist Harry Barbard of the CHICAGO DAILY NEWS, Ickes opines: "A man whom I don't know has sent me a tear sheet from the CHICAGO DAILY NEWS of January 23 in which appears a communication from you with reference to the Senate situation in Illinois. I believe that I will not fall behind in my esteem for Carl Sandburg, but the suggestion of support for him for the Senate seems to me to be entirely futile. Neither can I understand your expressed opposition to Paul V. Douglas. I have known Douglas for years, and I believe that he would make a great Senator."You concluded that Mr. Douglas is for the Truman Doctrine as applied in Greece and Turkey because he is for the Marshall Plan for West Europe. This certainly is not necessarily so. Personally I have opposed the Truman Doctrine for Greece and Turkey from the very beginning. It was a bad conception, and it was done in too much of a hurry, and I believe that as a result of it, we are in a highly dangerous position in those two countries today … However, I am in favor of the Marshall Plan for Western Europe. I do not believe that Western Europe can recover economically without our aid, and if Europe doesn't take a nose dive …"Paul Douglas - not Carl Sandburg - served as Senator from Illinois from 1949-1961.

        Cry, the Beloved Country

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1948. First American edition of the Paton's classic novel. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and dated by the author in the year of publication on the front free endpaper, "Alan Paton Johannesburg May 27, 1948." Some rubbing to the cloth in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Rare and desirable signed in the year of publication. The most famous and important novel in South Africa's history, and an immediate worldwide bestseller when it was published in 1948, Alan Paton's impassioned novel about a black man's country under white man's law is a work of searing beauty. The eminent literary critic Lewis Gannett wrote, "We have had many novels from statesmen and reformers, almost all bad; many novels from poets, almost all thin. In Alan Paton's Cry, the Beloved Country the statesman, the poet and the novelist meet in a unique harmony." "The greatest novel to emerge out of the tragedy of South Africa, and one of the best novels of our time" (The New Republic). Two cinema adaptations of the book have been made, the first in 1951, which was directed by Zoltan Korda, starring Canada Lee, Sidney Poitier, and Charles Carson. The second in 1995, starring James Earl Jones and Richard Harris. The novel was also adapted as a musical called Lost in the Stars (1949), with a book by the American writer Maxwell Anderson and music composed by the German emigre Kurt Weill.

        The Second World War - C C Wood's copies - Proof-reader to Churchill - SIGNED to volume 3 by Churchill

      Cassell, 1948. Hardcover. Very Good. First Edition, First Printings, published by Cassell and Co., 1948. From the library of Charles Carlyle Wood, proofreader of this work for a new corrected edition (or indeed editions, judging from the span of dates). Six volumes. 8vo. Publisher's black cloth titled in gilt to spines. Very good indeed in like dustwrappers, light toning to spine panels, slight shelfwear, strong and handsome. Internally clean. Inscribed by Churchill to C. C. Wood, his proofreader, in Volume 3: "For C.C. Wood from Winston S. Churchill (not to be read by you) 1950". Also present (and indeed present in all volumes in varying forms; alongside a copious number of content changes, proof marks and marginal annotations is "Examined, no corrections marked herein May 1st 1952" in Wood's hand. All volumes are annotated as "marked copies" if nothing else, Volumes I, II and IV bearing ink notations to the dustwrappers, and all volumes having at least one or two corrections marked in the text. Volume I; "The Gathering Storm" is famously a mass of errors and inconsistencies, the publicising of which were catalytic in Churchill following Bill Deakin's advice and passing the job of proofreading on to Wood (who had previously worked as part of the Churchill machine during the production of "Marlborough" in the 1930's and would continue to be the sand in the gears for a good few years subsequently. The process of proofreading at Chartwell was known rather ruefully as "Wooding." This copy of Volume I is packed to the gunwales with corrections ranging from the repositioning of maps and charts, through simple corrections of spelling and punctuation (Churchill and Wodd differed vociferously on this subject, Wood was the original Grammar Nazi) by way of date, place and name corrections through to the occcasional plea for clarification. Also present in the volume are a hnumber of rather censorious editorial pencil comments in another hand; these are somewhat critical of WSC's honesty and integrity and comment on his gernal reliability in terms of historical accuracy. Also laid in to the prelims of Volume one is a copy (or mimeograph) of a typed note from Wood to Churchill thanking him in surprisingly florid fashion for the inscribed Volume III. Examples detailing the mechanical workflow of Churchill's literary team are rare, especially in the case of what could be considered his most important work. An impressive and unique record.

        CICLO. Revista bimestral. Arte, literatura, pensamiento, modernos. Nº 1 nov,/dic; Nº 2 marzo abril

      Boris Kordon e hijos 1948/49, Buenos Aires - "Debates On Aesthetics Iin The Second Phase Of Surrealism In Argentina". 2 vols.; 8vo; original wrappers. ALL PUBLISHED. THE "NEW" ARGENTINE AVANT-GARDE. In the second half of the 1940s a productive encounter took place in periodical publications of the time between the plastic arts and literature. This encounter led the way towards a new avant-garde aesthetic. The main thrust of this new aesthetic was to leave behind the preponderance of expressive elements in favor of pure invention. It is within this context that the journal CICLO appears, although its pages also dealt with topics of broader interest to the Americas, and included contemporary and international themes, as well as local production. Aldo Pellegrini, one of the periodical’s founders, was the creator of Surrealism in Argentina. These two issues of CICLO are printed in book format; both covers are illustrated with small portraits of artists, the first of Lazlo Mohogy-Nagy and the second of Piet Mondrian. From the first volume we highlight an article entitled "Surrealismo y surrealistas" ("Surrealism and Surrealists") from 1948, in which Aldo Pellegrini discusses the topic of Surrealism and its connections with political movements of the time. Another article worthy of mention, this one by Pellegrini and published in the second issue, is a long essay on "La conquista de lo maravilloso" ("The Conquest of the Marvelous"), a key topic in the construction of a Surrealist aesthetic. This second phase of the Argentine avant-garde, twenty years removed from the first one, sprang from a more mature outlook of this group of writers and artists who paved the way towards the development and fate of Surrealism in Argentina. 2vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) varias pp páginas [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ohne Titel (1948). Abstrakter Expressionismus. Öl auf Holz. 36 x 25,5 cm. Monogrammiert.

      Hans Hofmann: Ohne Titel (1948). Abstrakter Expressionismus. Öl auf Holz. 36 x 25,5 cm. Monogrammiert. Bezüglich des Erhaltungszustandes sehen Sie sich bitte die Photos an. Das Bild hat vor allem im Randbereich Farbabplatzer. Auf der Rückseite des Werkes befindet sich ein Moisio-Photographie-Aufkleber aus den Vierziger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts, auf dem zusätzlich handschriftlich Hans Hofmann Provincetown 1948 vermerkt ist. Diese Arbeit Hofmanns stammt aus dem Besitz des Photographen Walfred Moisio (1910-2002). Hans Hofmann, einen der bedeutendsten abstrakten Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts, gilt es in Deutschland noch zu entdecken. Ausgebildet in München und Paris, wo er Künstlern wie Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris und Georges Rouault begegnete, etablierte sich der gebürtige Mittelfranke von 1930 an in den USA. Mit außerordentlich erfolgreichen Kunstschulen in New York und Provincetown übte er eine nachhaltige Wirkung auf eine ganze Generation amerikanischer Künstler der Nachkriegszeit aus. Er gilt als Katalysator des Abstrakten Expressionismus und beeinflusste Maler wie Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell oder Barnett Newman maßgeblich. Seine stilistisch variantenreichen, in kraftvollen Farben virtuos gestalteten Gemälde wurden in allen führenden Museen der USA ausgestellt und fanden Eingang in deren Sammlungen.

        RAR Eames Plastic Armchair. Schaukelstuhl.

      - Das Designerpaar Charles & Ray Eames gehört zu den bedeutendsten Designer-Persönlichkeiten des 20. Jahrhunderts, ihre zeitlosen Entwürfe zählen zu den Inkunabeln einer zeitlosen, am Bauhaus orientierten Avantgarde. Ihre bahnbrechenden Beiträge zu Architektur, Möbel- und Industriedesign, sowie ihre Haltung zur und Nutzung von Fotografie machten sie unsterblich, ihre Möbel werden bis heute (hierzulande bei Vitra International in Weil am Rhein) gebaut und sind in den wichtigen Museen der Welt ausgestellt. In der Produktentwicklung waren sie die Vorreiter: 1948 glückte ihnen der erste Stuhl aus Kunststoff, der überhaupt in Serienproduktion ging. Ihr eigenes Wohnhaus, das »Case Study House No. 8« in Kalifornien, setzte seinerzeit Maßstäbe: Das Innovative im Entwurf der Architektur, im Design des Interieurs und in der ungewöhnlichen Kombination der verwendeten Materialien und ihre Behandlung in den Details machen das Eames-Haus zu eine Mekka für Architekten und Designer der ganzen Welt. Es wird als eines der bedeutendsten Bauwerke der Nachkriegszeit weltweit anerkannt. Die für das Haus gebauten Möbel werden bis heute produziert, die »Vintage-« Originalmöbel erzielen auf dem Sammlermarkt exorbitante Preise und bilden eine sichere Wertanlage. Mit einer kleinen aber feinen Auswahl an Eames-Produkten möchten wir das Designerpaar würdigen und Ihnen einen unvergänglichen Wert ans Herz legen, sei es für Zuhause oder für die Praxis. Der legendäre »fiberglass chair« war der erste industriell gefertigte Stuhl aus Kunststoff. 1948 präsentierten Charles und Ray Eames den Entwurf des Stuhls auf dem Wettbewerb »International Competition for Low Cost Furniture«, der vom Museum of Modern Art in New York ausgeschrieben wurde. Die organisch geformte Sitzschale aus glasfaserverstärktem Kunststoff wurde später mit unterschiedlichen Untergestellen, wie beispielsweise den hier angebotenen Schaukelkufen des RAR, kombiniert und millionenfach produziert. In ihrer aktuellen Version aus Polypropylen bieten die Armchairs einen nochmals verbesserten Sitzkomfort, er sollte allerdings nicht länger als nötig in der Sonne ausgesetzt sein, dann könnte er verfärben. Mit seinen Kufen und seinem klassisch-zeitlosen Design wertet er das Kinder- oder Wohnzimmer ebenso auf wie die Praxis. 67 hoch x 62,5 breit, 52 cm tief, Sitzhöhe 33 cm, Schaukelstuhluntergestell verchromt mit Ahornkufen gebeizt (RAR), Sitzschale durchgefärbt aus Polypropylen, Farbe weiß.

"Une femme doit avoir l'air sylphide : un soulier plat lui donne l'air matériel ; au lieu qu'un talon haut l'empêche de toucher la terre en quelque sorte et en fait une créature céleste [.] Parmi nous, les Duchesses s'en tiennent presque toutes à ce dernier privilège : elles font les Sylphides chez elles, vont quelquefois se montrer à la Cour, s'enorgueillissent d'un sourire, d'un regard de la souveraine, et reviennent dans leur palais faire le même rôle qu'elles ont vu faire à leur égard. [.]" (Rétif de la Bretonne) La Femme-Sylphide ou Femme-Sylfide est une nouvelle tirée des Contemporaines de Rétif de la Bretonne parues pour la première fois en 1783. La première édition séparée de ce texte date de 1946 seulement (Paris, Librairie Lefrançois, 1946). Cette première édition séparée, de petit format, est ornée d'un frontispice et d'une planche hors-texte de Marcel Jean. L'édition de 1948 (date fournie par Dutel) que nous proposons ici est peu connue et Dutel ne donne aucun nom d'illustrateur pour cette superbe suite de 20 eaux-fortes en couleurs. Personne ne semble d'ailleurs s'être risqué à en donner un. Il s'agit pourtant d'un grand artiste au trait sûr et délicat. BEL EXEMPLAIRE DE CE SUPERBE ET RARE LIVRE ÉROTIQUE CLANDESTIN ILLUSTRÉ. TRÈS RARE EN PLEINE RELIURE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
