        Za Trvalý Mír, Proti Podn covatel m Války [For Lasting Peace Against Warmongers]

      Praha [Prague]: Nakladatelstvi Mir ? Dru?stevní Práce, 1951. First Edition. Jefimova, Boris [Efimov, Boris]. A collection of anti-Hitler and anti-U.S. cartoons by the great Soviet cartoonist Boris Efimov [1900-2008], whose name is rendered in Czech as Boris Jefimova.The anthology starts in the 1930s with the rise of Hitler and carries forward to the late 1940s, attacking the Marshall Plan, Wall Street fat cats, the Western alliance, and the U.S. position in Korea.By contrast, and not surprisingly, the Soviet Union is portrayed heroically, having single-handedly defeated Hitler. Given the preponderance of Wall Street financiers in the cartoons, Wall Street appears to be behind Western imperialism and belligerence and even abetted the rise of Hitler.The book opens with a quote from "J. Stalin" and contains 60 cartoons, mostly in black-and-white but some containing deep red, representing, of course, the supposed nobility of the Soviet Union and its allies.4to, 27.5 by 23 cm, unpaginated, in very striking illustrated boards. Light soiling and wear to the boards, but the pages are clean and bright.Copies of this Czech-language book are uncommon in the market. OCLC lists just three holdings: the College of William and Mary, the National Library of the Czech Republic, and the University of Leipzig.A very good, striking example of Czech-Russian agitprop during the dark days of the Cold War. SCARCE.

      Melbourne: Murfett, n.d., circa 1947-1951. A very scarce set of six volumes of the Ben and Bella series, each in first edition.

Her talent as a flower painter caught the eye of the publishers Murfetts who commissioned fifteen paintings of fairies and gypsies in woodland settings, which became her first book, Peg's Fairy Book. This work was overwhelmingly successful, selling 180,000 copies in five editions. She followed this success with the Pip and Pepita series, and then Ben and Bella. The titles in this collection are: Ben and Bella Down on the Farm; Ben and Bella in the Clouds; Ben and Bella in the Hills; Ben and Bella and the Apple Tree; Ben and Bella in the Gardens; and Forever Cuckoo! Six works, folio, illustrations; near fine in original coloured wrappers, preserved in a folding cloth box.
