    Soft cover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Paperback, 7.6 x 4.8 inches, 48 pages of text in Polish + 4-page summaries in English & French & Yiddish & German + 51 b&w plates + 8 colour plates on glossy paper, NOT ex-library. Gently aged copy showing limited wear. Interior clean, mildly age-toned, free of tanning, staining, and any markings in text; a hint of wear to tips of page corners, no readily noticeable creasing. Age-toned outer page edges showing some faint storage marks; secure binding. Spine noticeably leaned, gently rubbed, with mild indentations and creasing. Cover shows (mostly faint) dusty marks to edges, faint shelfworn marks, small creases and scratches, some light smudges, scuffing to edges. -- Henryk Beck, a doctor and artist, one of the Robinson Crusoes of Warsaw, fought in the Warsaw Uprising and, when the unconditional capitulation was signed, went into hiding in cellars of the ruins of Warsaw. Although the living conditions were extremely appalling, he - along with 35 other people - spent there 110 days. This common life in the cellars, incessantly strained, continually filled with danger, in suffocating air, heat and darkness, was a veritable torture. Yet Professor Beck managed to paint and draw there, and created a series of 46 drawings on papers of all possible kinds, using a drawing-pen and water-colours. These documentary drawings, done in conditions defying all standards of humanity, created by a physician and artist, were titled 'The Bunker of 1944'. --- Robinson Crusoes of Warsaw were people who, after the end of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising and the subsequent planned destruction of Warsaw by Nazi Germany, decided to stay and hide in the ruins of the German-occupied city. The most famous of the "Robinsons" was the composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, whose story was the subject of the 2002 film The Pianist.
