        The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1952. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a superior first printing set of the three-volume "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches, published during Churchill's second and final premiership. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - Member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner, painter. But his enduring preeminence owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle.? Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. Charles Eade played a critical role in their original publication, as well as in the publication of this edition issued during Churchill's second premiership. Charles Eade (1903-1964) was a noted figure in British journalism. In 1938 he became editor of the Sunday Dispatch, a post he held until 1957. Eade was also an early radio sports commentator, and during the Second World War served as public relations advisor to Louis Mountbatten. In 1942 Eade stepped in as compiler of Churchill's wartime speech volumes, replacing Churchill's son, Randolph, who had been called to wartime service. Notably, he offered his services free of charge, stating, "my reward for the task would be the pleasure of doing it" (7 May 1941 letter from Charles Eade to Kathleen Hill). Eade ultimately edited six of the seven wartime volumes - all except the first, Into Battle. For this "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches, Eade returned to the role. In 1952, during Churchill's second premiership, the publisher reissued the War Speeches as a new, three-volume edition. This edition is, in many ways, superior to the original seven wartime editions in both aesthetics and content. Gone is the cheap economy paper of the wartime editions. The binding is a heavy navy cloth with attractive, uniform dust jackets. Further, the books each measure a substantial 10 x 6.25 inches. New speeches are added, as is a very helpful index. Some of the original speeches considered peripheral are eliminated while others are retitled and chronological dates are replaced with brief transitional or introductory notes. This first edition, first printing, three-volume set is fine in very good dust jackets. The blue cloth bindings are exceptionally clean ? square, clean, bright, and tight with vivid spine gilt. We note only a few minor corner bumps. The contents are immaculate with no previous ownership marks or spotting. The page edges are likewise immaculate, with no dust soiling or spotting. The dust jackets are complete, unclipped with no losses. Shelf presentation is quite good, with only a hint of uniform spine toning. Apart from light wear to extremities, what prevents our grading these dust jackets as near fine or better is some unobtrusive, scattered light spotting. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A263.1(I-III).a, Woods/ICS A136(a.1), Langworth p.303.

        "Japonaises"

      Fusain, crayon et crayons de couleurs, 41x31 cm, (1952-1953), signé en bas à gauche et marqué du cachet, encadré. Croquis probablement réalisé lors de son voyage au Japon qui dura 6 mois, entre août 1952 et mars 1953. Il saisit et restitue sur le papier son émerveillement pour la culture traditionnelle japonaise. Il croque sur le motif des Japonaises en furisode aux couleurs chatoyantes. L'une d'elle porte un bébé dans ses bras. Albert Brenet (1903-2005), de ses origines havraises, a gardé un goût certain pour la mer. C'est tout naturellement qu'il sillonna les mers et les océans du monde dont il témoigna son amour par des vues de navires et de cargos, de ports, d'équipages. Tel un ethnographe, il rapporta de ses nombreux voyages des vues de paysages méditérranéens, d'Espagne, du Maroc, de Tunisie, de France et des Antilles Françaises, de Turquie, d'Iran, d'Autriche, du Japon, des Etats-Unis... Son voyage au Japon lui permit d'illustrer le Guide Odé "Le Japon, un portrait en couleurs". Il devint peintre de la Marine en 1936, mais aussi, fait assez rarissime pour être souligné, peintre de l'Air et de l'Armée de Terre. a

Clot. Premier tirage, exemplaire n°69, nominatif, tirage unique à 135 au total, sur pur fil Lana à la forme. Dos de la chemise légèrement passé, sinon bel exemplaire de ce texte célèbre magistralement illustré par Edouard Mac'Avoy, à commencer par un étonnant portrait de profil d'Henry de Montherlant. Né à Caudéran en Gironde (1905-1991) Edouard Mac'Avoy va peindre très jeune (19 ans) et rapidement connaitre le succès car il a tout de suite un style à part. Plus tard, il se spécialisera dans le portrait et réalisera celui de Cocteau, Maugham, Honegger, Gide, Picasso, Jouhandeau, Montherlant, Maurice Béjart, Ionesco, etc. Très proche de Montherlant, il sera son dernier visiteur avant son suicide le 21 septembre 1972 et racontera, dans Le plus clair de mon temps 1926-1987 qu'il avait "craqué" le jour de l'incinération du corps de Montherlant.

        The Old Man and the Sea.

      New York: Charles Scribner's & Sons, 1952. First edition. Octavo, original light blue cloth. Near fine in an excellent first issue dust jacket with the blue tint and $3.00 price with very light rubbing and wear to the extremities. Upon its publication in 1952 by Charles Scribner's Sons, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction the following year and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. The novel reinvigorated Hemingway's literary reputation. It initiated a reexamination of his entire body of work. The novel was received with such alacrity, that it restored many readers' confidence in Hemingway's capability as an author. Indeed, the publisher even wrote on an early dust jacket, calling the novel a "new classic," and it was compared by many critics to such revered works as William Faulkner's "The Bear" and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick.

        Fables, Eaux-fortes originales de MARC CHAGALL.

      Paris, Tériade Editeur (Presses de l'Imprimerie National de France), 1952, - 2 volumi in-folio (mm.390x305), a fogli sciolti sotto copertine editoriali illustrate da due incisioni dell'artista, in astucci di cartone. Illustrati da 100 acquaforti originali di Chagall in tavole fuori testo. Tiratura complessiva di 210 esemplari su carta forte ''vélin de Rives'', tutti portanti la firma autografa dell'artista sul foglio di giustificazione. Il presente è l'esemplare n. X (su XV) fuori commercio, riservati ai collaboratori. Questa edizione delle Favole fu voluta dall'editore Ambroise Vollard, il quale chiese a Chagall di esserne l'illustratore. Egli aderì e incise i 102 rami dal 1927 al 1930, i quali vennero conservati e impressi in tiratura originale e, in seguito, inseriti nella presente edizione Tériade del 1952. E' certamente una delle più significative serie d'incisioni del XX secolo, tra i capolavori dell'artista. Vollard scelse l'artista russo come illustratore di un poema classico francese per la sua fantasia, per la sua vicinanza natale alla cultura orientale, al guardare gli animali come personaggi con le qualità ed i vizi degli uomini. Esemplare in perfetta conservazione. Sorlier, chagall e Vollard, pp.75-126. Rauch, n.147. Chapon, Le peintre et le livre, pp. 219 e seguenti. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
