        Nineteen Eighty-Four

      Secker & Warburg 1949 - Published by Secker & Warburg, London in 1949 This 1st edition 1st impression of the literary classic by George Orwell is in Near Fine Condition. With its original light green boards and red lettering to the spine, the only flaws to speak of are a slight lean and fading to the spine, very slight bumping to the base of the spine and some minor ageing and spotting to the pastedowns and the free endpapers. Otherwise, the pages remain bright and clean. The book is encased in its original, unclipped red dustjacket, which is in Very Good + condition. There is some wear to the edges of the wrapper, fading to the spine and a small tear at the base of the front cover. The jacket is worn at the spine ends, predominantly at the top, with a small section torn away. The back panel of the jacket has been smudged with red ink. There is the original price of 10s. net on the front flap of the cover. In all a lovely copy of this classic book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Bien-Aime Comedie de Sacha Guitry. Illustrations by Georges Lepape. In a Design Bookbinding by John Franklin Mowery.

      Paris: Henri Javal. 1949 - Size: 10 in. x 8 in., 118+ [2] pp., including limitation and printer’s pages. Illustrated with seven full-page colored engravings as well as 14 other decorative illustrations. Printed in red and black. Text is in French. This is number 53 of the 40 copies numbered 26 to 65 (of a total edition of 295) printed on “Velin de Rives a la forme” paper, and it is accompanied by two separate suites of illustrations, one of 13 colored plates with remarques, the other of 21 black-and-white; each of the 34 signed by Charles Mazelin, an important French engraver. A third portfolio contains one of the copper engraving plates used in the printing of the edition (the illustration on page 85). The illustrations are engraved on copper by Charles Mazelin; typography by Pierre Bouchet. Handsomely bound in 1978 by J. Franklin Mowery, a well-known Design Bookbinder and Paper Conservator, associated with the Folger Shakespeare Library. The book is bound in natural oasis goatskin with black, blue and red inlaid leather borders. The centers of the covers are gray velvet, the front cover having the title stamped in blind. The title on the spine is gilt on a red leather title label; the cover edges and turn-ins are tan and black leather; top-edge gilt. Each group of plates is laid into two separate, gray velvet-covered portfolios, and the copper plate is mounted in a card frame and is in a matching portfolio. The book and portfolios are housed in specially crafted drop-back box, with black cloth spine and gilt red leather title label, with the sides and edges repeating the gray velvet with red leather borders; the interior is lined with gray velvet. This binding was exhibited at the Watson Library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York in 1982 and is pictured in the publication: John Franklin Mowery Bookbindings. All are in very fine condition. The design and choice of colors and velvet suggest the theatrical nature of the contents of the book, a comedy featuring King Louis XV, Queen Marie Leczinska, Madame De Pompadour, Voltaire, Fragonard and others. The play premiered in October 1940. Weight: 8 lbs. Postage may be extra on this item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Absorbent Mind

      Adyar - Madras - India : Theosophical Publishing House, 1949 - , viii, 421pp., very good peachy-orange hardcover, bumped at bottom of spine, but with spine call number and stamps of the Bureau of Jewish Education, Boston on endpapers and on title page, subject-catalog notation in ink on rear endpaper; paper and binding well-preserved including color fold-out illustrations, additional small label on title page: Sold by The Theosophical Press, Wheaton, Illinois, With 2-page preface by Mario Montessori dated Karachi, May 1949. The story of Montessori's engagement with India and with the Theosophists is told in Rita Kramer's biography, particularly pages 341-348. Kramer notes that The Absorbent Mind "was first published as a summary of her training-course lectures in less than adequate English. She later rewrote it in Italian, and that version was published in an English translation made by Claude A. Claremont" (356) [the 297pp. Edition published by this same publisher in 1959]. This history may account for the scarceness of the 1949 printing. With respect to the content of her work in India, Kramer remarks: "Watching the early development of babies in the Indian family, where they were stimulated by being in the center of things, seeing, hearing, being touched and handled, she worked out the ideas that she set down in the books written during the Indian years, particularly The Absorbent Mind" (347). .

      New York: Harper & Brothers, [1949]., 1949. First edition. Author's third hardcover book. Fine in dust jacket with light professional internal restoration to spine ends and corners and some minor light rubbing to front fore-edge. An attractive copy with no loss and the last to be published during his lifetime. Joe Wilmot and his wife Elizabeth own a small movie house. Not being particularly fond of her husband, when Elizabeth catches Joe kissing another woman, she tells him that she is willing to "disappear" if Joe agrees to pay her $25,000. The three decide they will murder a stranger, leave the woman's body in Joe's garage, set the garage on fire, and then, pretending that the dead woman is Elizabeth, collect the $25,000 from the insurance company. This is a tale of fraud, murder, and adultery ... a powerful tale of suspense that leads to a shuddering, disturbing conclusion.

        [Photo Album]: Girl's High School Album from Connecticut

      New Haven, Connecticut: 1949. Oblong quarto. Green leather over paper boards embossed with gilt decorations measuring 10" x 13". Assembled are 230 black and white photographs of various sizes from roughly 2" x 3.5" to 7" x 9" affixed to stiff black paper with captions. Some toning, creasing on occasional photos, and tiny tears on the paper leaves thus very good. A photo album documenting New Haven, Connecticut native, Rhoda Sochrin, while attending Wilbur Cross High School and later Southern Connecticut State University. The exploits of young New Englanders in the late 1940s and early 1950s plays out through the extensive pages of Sochrin's album. Beach excursions filled with antics of boys trying to impress their female counterparts with handstands and silly poses; a girl smoking with the caption, "for blackmail use"; another of Rhoda and "Howie" states, "the lovers? Either I'm asleep or I'm dreamy eyed." Later pictures show the group at a Phi Beta dance and include professional "souvenir" photographs with a live band pictured behind them. Sochrin also collected autographs and publicity photos of celebrities, present are Howard Smith, Karen Rich, and Artie Shaw. Rhoda was a member of the current affairs club and aspired to be a writer and contributed to her university's literary journal. A nice insight on the goings on of the life of the American teenager after the war.
