        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. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help.

        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.

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]

Bookplate to the front pastedown. Jacket with a touch of nicking to the extremities, and a tiny closed tear to the front panel, repaired with cello tape on the verso.

Bowles' first novel, which follows Port Moresby and his wife Kit's harrowing Saharan travels after WWII, established his literary reputation and is considered a landmark of 20th century literature. 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).

        The Dreams UNCORRECTED PROOF

      London: Jonathan Cape. Good with no dust jacket. 1949. Uncorrected Proof. Paperback. Sandy-ish coloured paper wraps printed in black to the front and back covers only. Dusty covers, with some edgewear and splits to the spine (now repaired). Also the covers have some light creases and a few marks. Page fore-edges dust ingrained and with a few small spots - brown and pink. Internally page corners were curled/creased, and the top of the first blank endpaper and the top of the title page both have a repaired tear - but no loss. One small closed tear further inside but apart from those repairs, the text block is generally very clean with no inscriptions, and is otherwise unmarked. Interestingly this Proof is DATED 1949 - and although most proofs are sent out pre-publication - the fact that this actually bears the printed date "First Published 1949", would indicate that it was going to be published in 1949 and not in 1950 when it was finally published. A scarce novel, the last of three by an author whose work often teetered on the border of Kafkaesque fantasy. Friedl Benedikt was a German Jew who fled first to France, and then England before the war, along with Elias Canetti with whom she had both a personal and professional relationship. She died at the age of 37 in 1953 in Paris. A Very Scarce Title and particularly so with the date anomoly. See Images. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall .

A drama of revenge, the film follows the machinations of a war veteran, Nick Garos, employed as a truck driver hauling California produce. Complications involve the crooked produce dealer who is out to cheat him as well as the two women in his life, his fiancà Polly, and the amoral Rica. The poster, extremely scarce and in very good condition, was the product of Western Poster Company, San Francisco. It is a striking graphic, bold in design and color, a worthy addition to a motion picture film noir archive.
