        Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)

      Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1949-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 1st American edition. Hardcover and dust jacket (with blue background as called for by Fenwick). Good binding and cover. 314 pp. Clean, unmarked pages. Minor shelf wear to dust jacket, in mylar. Also includes original brown paper "Exchange Book & Gift Shop" wrapper. 1984 was Orwell's most significant novel. Phrases as 'Double Think', 'Newspeak' and 'Big Brother' were coined in the book. The first US edition was printed by Harcourt, Brace and Company in 1949, only five days after the U.K. edition. The UK edition first printing ran 26,575 copies, the US edition was 20,000. This is the first American trade edition with "first American Edition" on copyright page and no book club dot on rear cover. Refs: Fenwick A.12b. Connolly 100. <br> <br> A wonderful contemporary review by William Soskin, "The disease that has a frenzied world in its grip has been accurately diagnosed. It is the disease of Power-state power and economic power immorally exploited. We know the disease. We do not know the cure. We do not even know the prognosis -whether men will survive or be utterly quelled and defeated.Various writers have attempted to instill in us a dread of the ominous shape of things to come, and they have not succeeded, chiefly because their prognosis has involved time-machines, flights into mechanical and biological fantasies, brave new worlds such as Aldous Huxley's, and erotic ballets of the future such as Robert Graves's recent "Watch the North Wind Rise." They know the symptoms of the disease of Power, these writers, but they somehow have not been able to construct the future in terms close enough to the reality, the fear in our hearts.It is the great realists of literature rather than the satirists and fantasy-spinners, who have had the gift of leading us quietly from what is to what can be. And George Orwell's novel escorts us so quietly, so directly, and so dramatically from our own day to the fate which may be ours in the future, that the experience is a blood-chilling one. Here is a novelist who understands the nature of the beast, the quality of the future to be possessed by Power, and who projects that future not in terms of gadgets or mechanical miracles, not even in terms of such lurid though horribly real machines as the atomic bomb. It is because he creates the totalitarian future in terms of passion and human feeling close to our own that his book has immense stature. Orwell has created a new kind of novel. He has told the story of a comparatively normal fellow, Winston Smith, who is caught in the inexorable machinery of the monolithic state, hounded by the forces of hatred, fear, and cruelty which the new civilization exalts, pursued and beaten into mental and spiritual death. His privacy is dead. In his squalid apartment the telescreen tells him always what to do, how to move and talk and think; what to believe. His every motion may by observed by the Thought Police through this telescreen. Smith works in the Ministry of Truth, falsifying official records and news reports every time the state changes its domestic or foreign policy. Thus history is destroyed and the state controls the past as well as the present and the future. Thus ignorance, an essential condition to the survival of such a state, is exalted. This is an important conception in Orwell’s drama of the disease of Power run rampant, but is it not close enough to our own statistical and communications systems to contain terrifying meaning for our own way of life?In this world which condemns personality, where the dictatorship has conditioned men and women against love, where food is revolting and language has been altered into something called doublethink, whereby you may believe two contradictory things at once (our party-faithful will understand the need for this!), there is still a spark of surviving individuality in Smith. The novel depicts his heroic search for an underground movement in revolt against the nightmare that is the State. It also tells of the sad course of his attempt to escape the frustrated conception of sex and to carry on a love affair that bears some resemblance to romance, some relation to physical joy.He fails, this individualist, and the gestapo which undoes him and the inquisitors who force his confessions and his final submission make our own police methods and our cardinals' trials seem like child's play. The chapters dealing with this final inquisition easily stand comparison with the inquisitor's scene in "The Brothers Karamazov." The story of official pursuit has all the suspense and melodrama of a super-detective novel, but instead of an exercise in criminal chase we are confronted with the grim pursuit that hangs over the head of every modern man. It is a pursuit that makes us examine our own lives with a new eye. It is a novel that heightens today's problems with the light of their wrong solution. It turns a skeptic's gaze on all forms of regimentation, even though momentarily they may seem to be of social benefit.You look again at your radio and television sets with all their bright possibilities for entertainment and education, and you see with horror the spying eyes and ears they may become in every room of the house in the hands of people who have seized a government for the sake of power and power alone. You look again at your daily newspaper which disseminates facts, or at the reports of statistical bureaus which plot and curve the rise and fall of national income, population, and employment, and you suddenly realize that a newspaper or a statistical bureau in ruthless hands are entries to your brain - another possible instrument for the regimen of slavery.The slogans of the super-Party that governs the state in this story are: WAR IS PEACE and FREEDOM IS SLAVERY and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. Other products of a public-relations technique not so different from our own are a Hate Party, a Hate Week, and a rigorously enforced TWO MINUTES OF HATE period. Does this seem so remote, after all, in a world that contains populations inculcated with the creeds of Fascism or race superiority? And does it seem so strange that the world of 1984 is divided into three great warring powers - Oceania, Eastasia, and Eurasia- and that these wars are constantly sustained, without victories or defeats, as an economic policy? Have we not learned in our own civilization that there are no victories or defeats, and that wars are all too effective economic instruments of inflation?Nineteen eighty-four is, after all, only thirty-five years off!" WILLIAM SOSKIN, What Can Be, 1984 Review, The Saturday Review, June 11, 1949.

Handmade book of original gelatin silver prints, 9 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches, documenting "old doors of the west" the author photographed on a trip down the "'49 Gold Route in the Motherlode country". Handwritten captions under the photographs, including the author's name on the front cover, which appears to read "Allen Chilole". 23 images counting the covers.

        El Aleph.

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Losada,, 1949. Octavo. Original brown wrappers, spine and front cover lettered in black and red. Bookseller's ticket to rear wrapper. Wrappers toned and a little foxed, text block toned. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. This copy is from the library of Jorge Luis Borges's controversial English-language translator, Norman Thomas di Giovanni (1933-2017), though unmarked as such. Produced in collaboration with Borges, di Giovanni's translations were the first concentrated efforts to translate the majority of Borges's works into English. The working relationship between di Giovanni and Borges was so close that di Giovanni was given a creative credit and a share of the royalities. The short story "El Aleph", first published in September 1945 in the literary magazine Sur, lends its name to the title of this collection of short stories. Di Giovanni's English-language edition of El Aleph was published in 1970 as The Aleph and Other Stories 1933-1969.

        Amère lettre de Francis Picabia sur les artistes des Réalités nouvelles.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 1 In-4 24/12/1949 Avec enveloppe. bon Picabia a 70 ans, au printemps 49, quand le galeriste René Drouin organise la première rétrospective de son oeuvre. C'est l'heure des hommages. Autant dire, un enterrement à vif. Il est las, l'envie s'en est allée, l'avenir est derrière lui. L'un de ses derniers tableaux, des points de couleurs parsemés sur un fond monochrome, s'intitule Je n'ai plus envie de peindre, quel prix ? Le Salon des Réalités nouvelles, initié par Sonia Delaunay et Hans Arp, et qui promeut l'art abstrait, est devenu l'exutoire de ses amertumes. Il est désormais un peintre du passé ; des artistes audacieux, Soulages, Vieira da Silva, de Staël, Klein, le relayent au rang d'artiste académique. Une injure. « Je viens de recevoir votre papier, que je trouve très bien, je l'ai donné à René Drouin, je vous remercie, cela m'a fait grand plaisir d'avoir ces lignes de vous. Hier, j'ai été au bal nègre où j'ai rencontré votre frère, il m'a dit que la famille devait être représentée. Cette exposition va être curieuse. Je me demande en voyant ces tableaux quel peut être le peintre qui a peint tout cela. Je pense aux artistes des réalités nouvelles qui ont le sentiment d'être les peintres élus parmi les peintres, et cela parce qu'ils se donnent le génie moral parmi les artistes grâce à la faculté qu'ils ont de mépriser tout, faculté développée chez eux plus que chez n'importe quel idiot. Je suis très heureux que vous reveniez avant le 20. Je vous serre les deux mains très amicalement. Olga vous envoie toutes ses amitiés. Francis Picabia J'ai fait ce dessin après une soirée à notre cercle, très XVIIIe, vous ne trouvez pas ? Il va y avoir 120 tableaux. » Peintre dadaiste puis surréaliste. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Cette rare plaquette est dédicacée par ce dernier à un comédien. RARE ENSEMBLE. 3 volumes. ***** Breton par un article publié dans Combat le 19 mai 1949 fut le premier à dévoiler la mystification de LA CHASSE SPIRITUELLE.

Deux mois après Breton sort FLAGRANT DELIT où il expose ses arguments, s'appuyant en particulier sur ce qu'est pour lui la véritable connaissance artistique : "Les grandes oeuvres sont toujours voilées et la connaissance ne parvient à l'essentiel que si elle accepte ses limites.".

      Heidelberg : Office Of Adviser On Jewish Affairs,(1949). 1st edition. Original paper wrappers, 4to (large) , 60 mimeographed leaves. 27 cm. Publication of the minutes of a conference held in Heidelberg on July 31, 1949, with speeches and discussions on such problems as rebuilding Jewish communities in Germany, relations with non-Jews, social welfare programs, religious and cultural programs, and restitution. Includes fairly detailed descriptions of the state of Jewish communities of Stuttgart, Darmstadt, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Berlin, Wiesbaden, Frankfurt, Hanover, Duesseldorf, Kiel, Cologne and Hamburg. "Reports from American Jewish chaplains, American Jewish soldiers, survivors and members of the American Press persuaded the American Government to investigate the army's treatment of the Jews. As a result, in August 1945, the Office of Advisor on Jewish Affairs was created to keep the Commanding General in the European Theater of Operations (ETO) informed of problems facing Jewish DPs. The office which remained in operation until December 1949, served as an advocate for the needs of the Jewish survivors. " (Grobman, Battling for Souls, p.76) . "The founding of the German Federal Republic in May 1949 was the turning point that evoked negotiations concerning the future of the Jewish community. On September 1, 1949 [sic July 31, but report was signed Sept 1] Harry Greenstein, the adviser on Jewish Affairs in the in the American Zone, called a conference on 'The Future of the Jews in Germany. ' He had two primary objectives: first to bring together the representatives of the Jewish Communities and of the major local and international Jewish organizations in Germany; and second to lay the foundation for coordinating the work of all the interested parties and organizations concerned with the welfare of the Jews in Germany. Greenstein emphasized the need to concentrate on the practical issues rather than on the complicated ideological or moral questions regarding the future relations between Germans and Jews" (Lavsky, New Beginnings, p 212) . Greenstein notes in his preface: "The meeting represented the first comprehensive Jewish conference held in Germany in the last sixteen years. " The following individuals are also mentioned in the publication: Barish, Louis; McCloy, John J. ; Kogon, Eugen; Auerbach, Phillip; Klein, Isaac; Kreuzberger, Max; Van Dam, H.
