        Mural-Scrolls [Mural Scrolls]

      New York: Katzenbach and Warren, Inc. 1949. RARE PORTFOLIO WITH ORIGINAL SILKSCREENS by Matisse, Calder, Miro, and Matta. A rare complete sample book created by Katzenbach and Warren, Inc. in 1949 to promote an intended limited series of large scrolls by the artists. The series of large scrolls never materialized although a handful were completed, generally for people associated with the project.

Although relatively large, (12 x 18 inches including the burlap mount), the silkscreens in this collection are reduced versions of the intended larger scrolls (six to ten feet in length and four to six feet wide). 

Printed on canvas and mounted on burlap, the four silkscreens show exquisite depth of color and rich texture. Includes: "A Piece of My Workshop" by Calder; "Arbre en Fleur" by Matisse, "Sun-Dice" by Matta, and "El Sol" by Miro. The Matisse and Miro prints have a small stamp "MS" (for "Mural-Scrolls", as issued).With introduction by James Thrall Soby and statements by each of the artists. New York: Katzenbach and Warren, Inc., 1949. Folio, original spiral-bound color boards; housed in an exquisite box by noted book designer Sjoerd Hofstra. Rear board neatly detached (but holding securely under the added mylar jacket); a few abrasions to boards. Tape residue to both inside covers (as in all copies we've seen), offsetting to last page of text (as always). A little paste action and burlap impression to Matisse. A stunning set, with the silkscreen colors remarkably bright. RARE.

        Judaica

      1949. Rare Edition in Hebrew: <I>“Emile Zola / J’Accuse / 1898.”</I> Hardcover, 92 pages, 6” x 9.5”. Jerusalem: Bialik Foundation, 1949. Soiled front and back free-endpapers, damaged spine. Uncut. No dust jacket. Bound between pages39 and 40 is a folded, four page, 10” x 13.5” reprint of the January 13, 1898 issue of the French newspaper <I>“L’Aurore”</I> with Zola’s <I>“J’Accuse...!”</I> letter to French President Felix Faure on the front page, in fine condition. Seven page <I>“Prologue”</I> by Leon Blum, signed by him in facsimile. Except for spine, in very good condition.<br /><br />From “The Palestine Post,” September 30, 1949: “The Jewish Agency, through its Bialik Foundation, has repaid a debt due by all Jewry to Emile Zola in republishing in facsimile the issue of ‘L’Aurore,’ the newspaper containing his history-making article ‘J’Accuse....!’ 50 years after its explosive appearance in the midst of the Dreyfus affair ... It is fitting that it should be given anew to the generation which, by creating the State of Israel, has struck the most effective blow against the anti-Semitism which Zola fought so resoundingly. At the same time, the fact that the volume containing the reprint was prepared for publication last January but could not be issued till now owing to the siege conditions in Jerusalem early this year might well be taken as symbolic of the fact that vigilance must never be relaxed. The commemorative volume which being published by the Bialik Foundation, is naturally in Hebrew, contains a preface specially contributed by M. Leon Blum, who as a young lawyer took part in the preparation of the defence for Zola in the subsequent trial. Two translations of ‘J’Accuse....!’, one newly made by Itzhak Shenberg and one by A.A. Rakovsky in 1898, provide an instructive contrast between the fluid Hebrew of today and the stilted phraseology of then. There follows an appraisal by Mr. Benzion Dinaburg of the historic effects of Zola’s article, and a chronological record of the Dreyfus affair. The whole has been produced with the good paper, good print and general good taste that have come to be expected of the Bialik Foundation’s publications.”<br /><br />Alfred Dreyfus (1859-1935), a Jewish French army officer, was accused of selling military secrets to the German military attaché. Convicted of treason in 1894 despite his protests of innocence and flimsy evidence, Dreyfus was imprisoned on Devil's Island. French novelist Emile Zola (1840-1902), who was Jewish, wrote a scathing letter to French President Felix Faure beginning “J'Accuse” which was published on the front page of the French newspaper “L’Aurore” on January 13, 1898. His letter led to an investigation which proved that the papers on which Dreyfus had been convicted were forged. Lieutenant Colonel Georges Picquart had found evidence that Major E.F. Esterhazy had engaged in espionage, not Dreyfus, and it was Esterhazy's handwriting that was found on the evidence incriminating Dreyfus. Instead of remedying the injustice, Picquart was removed from his post and the French staged anti-Semitic riots. Dreyfus, however, was given a second trial, and, although he was again found guilty, received a pardon from French President Emile Loubet who had succeeded Faure in 1899. Following yet another trial in which he tried to clear his name, in 1906, Dreyfus’ original conviction was finally set aside and he was restored to his rank and awarded the Legion of Honor.<br /><br />The Dreyfus Affair brought Leon Blum (1872-1950) into politics. Campaigning as a Dreyfusard brought him into contact with socialist leader Jean Jaures whom he greatly admired. He began writing for the socialist daily newspaper and eventually joined the Socialist Party. Blum became France’s first Socialist and first Jewish Prime Minister, serving from 1936-1937 and March-April 1938. In 1940, after the fall of France, he was arrested by the Vichy government and indicted on charges of war guilt. Blum was freed by U.S. forces from a German concentration camp in May 1945. From December 1946 to January 1947 he headed a caretaker government, pending the election of the first President of the Fourth Republic. Leon Blum died six months after this book was published.<br />

        Portrait d'Aimé Césaire.

      Paris: Editions Fragrance,, 1949. Etching with drypoint on Montval paper with 'Montval and Corps Perdu' watermark. Sheet size 56.5 x 39.3 cm. Excellent condition. Presented float mounted in a white gold leaf frame with acrylic glass. Edition of about 200 unnumbered. Signed in pencil lower left by Picasso. A proof printed together with the uncorrected title page of Corps Perdu. Picasso and poet Aimé Césaire (1913-2008) met in 1948 at the Communist-led World Congress of Intellectuals for Peace, in Wroclaw, Poland. Césaire had been the figurehead of the 1930s Negritude movement in France, a group of writers who hoped to foster a sense of shared heritage throughout the African diaspora, reasserting their identities in opposition to Western colonial perspectives. Both Picasso and Césaire challenged and renewed the conventions of their respective mediums, and, in addition to their interest in Communist politics and African art, they shared Surrealism's interest in dreams, the power of the unconscious mind, and the irrational and fantastic. Césaire's text explores society's brutal positing of the black man as half-human, half-beast, while Picasso's illustrations fuse male and female sexual organs with plant-inspired forms. (MoMA)

        A Season in Hell, Une Saison en Enfer [DESIGN BINDING - Paul Delrue]

      London: John Lehmann, 1949. 1st Edition. Leather. Fine. Vaughan, Keith. First edition, in a custom binding, octavo size, 69 pp., signed by binder Paul Delrue. First edition, in a custom binding. Paul Delrue (b. 1944) bound his first book at the age of 15 in 1959, and knew he had discovered his calling. He became an apprentice at the University College, London from 1961-64 and worked there as a binder until 1971. He set up his own bindery in 1971 and in 1981 was elected a Fellow of the Society of Bookbinders, having founded and served as chairman of the Chester and North Wales branch in 1979. Paul has earned numerous awards and honours, including the Silver medal and three other awards in 1991 in The Bookbinding Competition. He was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in the same year; the following year he was awarded two Bronze medals in the prestigious Prix Paul Bonet. Paul developed the lacunose style of binding which is now used by other binders; his work is highly prized and springs from within him; as he writes on his web site, "A book and its binding are inextricably linked - the one complements the other in a way which creates something more than just a book with an attractive cover. My design bindings draw on what a book says to me and how it inspires me emotionally". Rimbaud is Delrue's favorite poet, and this is a sumptuous design binding of the first edition, including illustrations and the dust-jacket which is inlaid to the upper board of the case. ***DESCRIPTION: Full blue marbled sheepskin by Thomas Schmitz, onlay to upper board depticts Arthur Rimbaud at 17 smoking a pipe and is hand drawn in black by the binder, small circular onlay to lower board, housed a blue cloth fall-down-back box, with the upper wrapper of the original dust-jacket inlaid to the upper board and ruled in blind, lined in grey suede, bound with marbled endpapers, frontispiece and eight full-page illustrations, [i-vi], 1-69 pp., first edition in a custom binding, signed on the final page of text by Paul Delrue. ***CONDITION: A stunning, fine example of both the condition of the first edition, and the binding, in a fine box. Some might disapprove of a rebinding of a first edition, but in this case it is more of an homage or collaboaration, a loving new home built by a kindred spirit, and a very fine way to enjoy the first edition of the text. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Negro in Sports [INSCRIBED, ASSOCIATION COPY]

      Washington, D. C.: The Associated Publishers, Inc, 1949. Second edition, Revised. Octavo (20 cm). Brick red cloth stamped in black; xvi, 507 pp.; profusely illustrated with photographic plates; dust jacket. First published in 1939, Henderson's seminal history of and reference work on African-American athletes, has been greatly expanded and revised in this second edition. This copy owned by Hall of Fame college football coach, Harvey Harman (1900-1969), who played football for the Univ. of Pittsburgh before coaching at Haverford Univ., the Univ. of Penn. & Rutgers. Inscribed by the author to Harman with further collegial inscriptions from James Guy Tyson (1899-1970), Howard Univ. football star, lawyer, and director of the American Red Cross, Augustus Oliver Thornton, educator and member of the Improved Benevolent, Protective Order of Elks of the World (IBPOEW) and two names we've yet to identify. The event that appears to have brought these men together was the 1950 meeting of the Pigskin Club [of Washington], a largely African-American fraternal organization based around football and organized by Dr. Charles B. Fisher in 1938. Although white, Harman gave the 1950 principal address, a testament to the organization's attempt to overcome racial prejudice through democracy in sports. Both Henderson and Tyson served in various officer capacities, although it does not appear that Harman was a member. A Near Fine copy with the slightest cock to boards and one faint mark to the bottom front board; in the scarce pictorial dust jacket, which is unclipped ($4.00), but rubbed and worn with chipping to spine ends; a few water droplets to front panel; Good+. A highly, collectible copy with a significant association that signifies an attempt by men such as Henderson and Harman to extirpate racial prejudice through sports.

        Nineteen Eighty-Four.

      London Secker & Warburg 1949 - First edition, 8vo, original cloth, mild sunning around spine, in the original red dust-jacket, usual loss of tone to spine, small splits and chipping to spine ends, rubbed at fore-edge of upper panel, but otherwise a better copy than one usually finds. An attractive unsophisticated copy of one of the 20th century's landmark works of fiction, and a classic of dystopian literature. The jacket is found printed in either green or red, with opinions vacillating over the years as to which is preferred or most scarce. The red in particular is notorious for losing colour at the spine, but this example is better than many, with both panels in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In his 1949 New York Times review of the novel, Tennessee Williams described it as "a chronicle of startling adventure against a background of the Sahara and the Arab-populated regions of the African Continent... In this external aspect the novel is an account of startling adventure. In its interior aspect, "The Sheltering Sky" is an allegory of the spiritual adventure of the fully conscious person into modern experience...a first-rate story of adventure by a really first-rate writer" (Williams). Modern Library Best 100 Novels in English. Fine in Very Good + dust jacket. Fine in Very Good + dust jacket.
