         Folklore Music Map of the United States

      1946 - Date: 1946 (Published) New York Dimensions: 23.25 x 31 inches (59 cm x 78.7 cm) This fascinating, colorful map of the United States depicts American folk music and the influences which shaped it in each area of the country. Various regional songs are depicted pictorially with the title of the song, a line of musical notes, and a corresponding whimsical vignette illustrating the song. Across the top of the map is an inset with the words “Explanation to Illustrations and Music on Map”. Below it are short descriptions or simply names of various nationalities whose influence helped shaped folk music in different parts of the country. Along the northeastern seaboard are vignettes suggesting the influence of the first explorers, of British sailors, of the Pilgrims, and a ballroom scene suggesting Continental European influence in the colonies. Farther south are depicted African Americans engaged in various industries, farming enterprises and indigenous peoples in their brightly-colored costumes. Farther inland and toward the west coast vignettes are effectively used to convey the sense of time and place for different sorts of music. The border contains lovely illustrations of musical instruments of sundry origins, from ancient to modern. Some of the songs depicted include Bayou ballads, Creole folk songs, early California music, songs of the open range, Louisiana folk music, folk hymns, African American spirituals, and songs for children. Seven Zuni Indian symbols and colors representing the notes of the musical scale also appear in the upper border. Dorothea Dix Lawrence was a successful opera singer in the 1930s and 1940s, and then became a leading champion and scholar of American folk music. She gave hundreds of lecture-recitals across the United States and Europe. In these recitals, she sang American Indian songs in their original language as well as art songs by established composers. In 1945, she produced the "Folklore Music Map of the United States," which was widely distributed in American schools. She later published her songs in the book Folklore Songs of the United States. She gave "Musically Mapping America" talks throughout the United States and Mexico until her retirement in 1970. Her papers are in the Dorothea Dix Lawrence Collection at the Library of Congress. Condition: This superb linen-backed pictorial map is in A condition. Inventory #10937

         GENOCIDE

      Phi Beta Kappa(1946). 1st Separate Edition. No Wrappers. 8vo. 4 pages ; 25 cm. "Re-printed from American Scholar, Volume XV, no. 2." An early introduction to the term genocide from Raphael Lemkin, the lawyer who coined the term, two years after Lemkin first introduced the term in his book Axis Rule in Occupied Europe: Laws of Occupation, Analysis of Government, Proposals for Redress, and two years before he initiated the Genocide Convention. This is one of the first publications to ever define the term; in it, Lemkin writes, "Would mass murder be an adequate name for such a phenomenon? We think not these considerations led the author of this article to the necessity of coining a new term for this particular concept: genocide. The word is made from the ancient Greek word genos (race, clan) and the Latin suffix (killing) . Thus genocide in its formation would correspond to such words as tyrannicide, homicide, patricide. " OCLC lists no copies worldwide. Some edgewear and creases along the edge. Overall Good+ condition. (HOLO2-135-85)

         Hawaiian Lu'au

      Fisher Corporation, Waikiki (Honolulu) 1946 - Quarto. (126)pp. Illustrated with twenty-nine color plates, which richly depict different aspects of a Hawai'ian luau. Images of the food, dancing, music, and people together evoke the joy and excitement of a traditional luau. Each illustration is preceded by a transparent guard sheet, on which is printed a descriptive lyrical stanza. At the back, Sanders has provided a dictionary of Hawaiian words used in the volume's text. Though Sanders is unknown outside of this present work, Marcel Cailliet spent much of his life as an art instructor, employed by Arizona State Teacher's College, Navy Pacific University, and a private school in Honolulu. He was also an ensign in the U.S. Navy during World War II, being stationed in Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Pearl Harbor. Cailliet's style is reminiscent of the colorful and exaggerated characteristics of other early twentieth-century artists in the western United States, such as Thomas Hart Benton and Milford Zornes. Cailliet's work bears particular similarity to his fellow Californian Millard Sheets, with whom he studied in Pomona, CA. This volume exemplifies the richness and vitality of the work of Cailliet and his peers of western America. Bound in boards and fastened with screw-type rivets, corners slightly bumped, upper board splayed. Scant foxing to first and final pages, else a fine copy of a scarce volume rich in color and culture. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A zatim co valka. Sbornik. (And in the Meatime War)

      Brno: Edice Ra (Rovnost) 1946 - Large octavo 21x15 cm., wrappers, 61(4)pp. Cover and book design by Vaclav Zykmund. A Festschrift of writings and art by the postwar surrealist group Ra. In the brief era following the liberation and restoration of Czechoslovakia and before the communist takeover, there was an upsurge of experiment and pioneering in the arts and literature. The Ra group was consisted of young surrealists connected with Karel Teige and the journal Kvart in the 1930s. They didn't accept psychic automatism, were more ironic and had a bent for self-parody, and didn't share the self-importance and pretense of the Paris surrealists. These Czech surrealists set the pattern of outsider art that would persist through the communist era. During the war they worked and published underground. This collection brings the principals together, with art, photography and writings both pre- and post-liberation by Josef Istler, Milan Korecek, Ludvik Kundera, Bohdan Lacina, Vilem Reichmann, Vaclav Tikal and Zykmund among others. An important document of the time, it is uncommon, with only three North American institutional holdings (Yale, MOMA, Getty). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Photographs of the Disposition of Ships in Bikini Test of Atom Bomb

      [Washington, D.C.: GPO, 1946. Collection of 23 gelatin silver images mounted on thick card. Images and mounts vary slightly in size, most images are approximately 4.5" x 3.5" on slightly larger cards. Each image is identified in the negative. Undated but certainly very nearly contemporary with the test. Near fine or better. The first image shows a map of the disposition of the ships for the Test, two show aerial views of the disposition, and the remaining 20 images are of the various ships that were used in the text; a few show more than one angle of the same ship. In July, 1946 the Navy gathered a group of obsolete American ships, as well as captured Japanese and German warships in order to test the atomic bomb against a fleet. This group of photographs was for the Able test held in July of 1946, the first of two tests. The Able Test was for an air dropped bomb; the Baker Test, launched against the remaining ships, was for an underwater based nuke. During the Test, the Japanese battleship Nagato, from which the Pearl Harbor attack had been directed was positioned near ground zero in order to guarantee being sunk, but the combination of the bomb missing the drop point and the battleship's stern-on orientation to the bomb protected her, and the symbolic sinking had to wait another three weeks until the Baker Test. The images here are exclusively of American ships that were used in the test. Nice documentation of the infamous Tests.

         LE DOCTORAT IMPROMPTU.

      Editions Eryx, Paris, 1946 - ANDREA DE NERCIAT. Paul-Emile BECAT (illustrateur). LE DOCTORAT IMPROMPTU. Illustrations de Paul-Emile Bécat. Editions Eryx, Paris, 1946 1 volume in-4 (26,5 x 20,5 cm), en feuilles, de 101-(2) pages. 8 compositions hors-texte et 10 compositions in-texte mises en couleurs au pochoir. Couverture rempliée crème imprimée en rouge avec vignette. Emboîtage cartonné de l'éditeur (légèrement frotté). Livre à l'état proche du neuf. Avec suites (7 hors-texte + 8 hors-texte refusés x 2). (voir le détail ci-dessous). Tirage à 695 exemplaires plus 50 exemplaires hors-commerce. Celui-ci, 1 des 50 exemplaires hors-commerce imprimé sur vélin de Renage et accompagné d'une suite des 8 compositions refusées (en double, soit 16 gravures) et des 7/8 des compostions hors-texte standard. Le tout en coloris au pochoir. 2 gravures présentent de légères traces de plis visibles seulement au verso. "Ce conte érotique tient en deux missives envoyées par Erosie à son amie restée au couvent : l’héroïne y raconte comment, au lieu de son futur époux, elle trouve dans l’auberge où ce dernier devait l’attendre un petit vicomte qui la guérit de sa haine des hommes, et quels obstacles à sa découverte du plaisir va dresser un abbé jaloux devenu maître chanteur. Le Doctorat impromptu est une leçon de sagesse amoureuse qui, dans le même mouvement, devient une invitation à l’appliquer – autrement dit c’est un livre de philosophie où le gai savoir de l’amour se réalise dans la simple description du plaisir de le faire. Andréa de Nerciat, auteur du Diable au corps, de Felicia ou Mes fredaines, est né à Dijon en 1739 et mort en 1801. Après de solides études, des voyages en Allemagne et en Italie, il se consacre assez tôt à une vie aventureuse faite de vagabondages littéraires – on lui prête aussi une carrière d’espion – et à son oeuvre personnelle." (Présentation de l'édition moderne Babel éditeurs, 2008). Jolie édition "officiellement vendue" (qui n'est donc pas une édition clandestine) et délicatement illustrée par Paul-Emile Bécat. A noter que dans la suite des 8 compositions refusées le caractère très libre ne s'affirme que pour un seul dessin (voir photo ci-dessous). Bel exemplaire du tirage hors-commerce avec suites des hors-texte en double (moins une gravure). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

In-4to.Navy blue paper-board (spine of vol 6 damaged), title piece stamped on the front page, light browning throughout due to poor paper quality, but overall in very good condition. Unpaginated, but ca. 10,000pp. Tokyo, International Military Tribunal Far East, The International Military Tribunal for the Far East, abbreviated as TMIEO was created on January 19, 1946 to prosecute major Japanese war criminals of the Second World War.Tamura Hiroshi was Head of the Prisoner of War Information Bureau. He was considered an A-class war criminal and was sentenced to 8 years in prison in February 23rd, 1949. The trial was conducted under the direction of the Supreme Command of the Allied Powers (SCAP).In order to show the international dimension of trial, an Australian officer was appointed president of the proceedings. The charge against Tamura was willful disregard of duties in contravention to the Geneva Conventions, in particular his refusal to allow members of the Red Cross access to POW camps. His defence argued that Tamurawas entirely dependent on the orders from above. This extremely detailed archive of examination of evidence and counter-evidence shows the remarkable will of the Allied Forces to be seen to be following the letter of the law to the highest possible standard.

         History of Western Philosophy

      London: George Allen and Unwin Ltd,, 1946. and its connection with political and social circumstances from the earliest times to the present day. Octavo. Original grey cloth, spine lettered in yellow on a brown background. With the dust jacket. A little bit of foxing to text block, otherwise an excellent copy in the jacket, spine ends lightly creased. First UK edition, first impression. Russell's compendious account of the history of philosophy, from the Orphism of Ancient Greece to the Logical Positivism of the author's present day, was a triumph of his populist craft and is perhaps his most famous book. Written during the Second World War, Russell's project was in part conceived to explain to his audience the exact nature of the "civilisation" for which they were fighting. Appropriately, the dust jackets were printed on the backs of surplus Second World War maps, this one showing a part of Germany. Simon & Schuster published the first US edition in the preceding year.

"Je me rappelle toujours avec le plus vif plaisir mon séjour à Princeton, j'aimerais infiniment y revenir. Je crains que pour mille raisons ce ne soit possible avant longtemps. Mais si jamais vous venez à Paris je serais très heureuse de pouvoir avoir un moment avec vous.".

         The Complete Poems and Stories of Edgar Allan Poe.

      New York, NY: Alfred A Knopf, 1946.. FIRST BORZOI EDITION. Two volumes. Octavo, pp.x, 542; x, 1087. Illustrated with suitably arresting colour plates by McKnight Kauffer. Bound in recent half blue calf, the original cloth boards laid down, with raised bands, gilt compartments, twin red labels, gilt titles and decoration to spine. Housed in a custom-made slipcase, bound in blue cloth. A fine example, inside and out. A handsome set of the works of the extraordinary Gothic savant. When considering his traumatic and brief life story, it is easy to see how his sensibility for the darker side of human nature arose - but this still fails to explain the sheer fecundity of his imagination, or the brilliance of his writing.
