        The Grace Line Dedicates this carte to ye olde Spanish Maine...

      Grace Line.. Copyright 1933.. Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, map 31 x 22 3/4 inches on sheet 32 x 24 inches, mounted on linen. There is some light undulation to the poster from the older linen mounting process, only noticeable in raking light. Otherwise the poster is clean and bright. Jo Mora is perhaps the best known and well loved of all the pictorial map makers of the early and mid twentieth century. This is a colorful, lively and informative map of Mexico and Central America, created by Mora as an advertising promotion for the Grace Line company. There are several inset maps: the Panama Canal, Cartagena, Guatemala, and El Salvador, plus a highly decorative border with images highlighting the history and wealth of the area. The image in the lower border is titled "Father Nepture presenteth ye Grace Line fleet to ye Olde Spanish Main." One of Mora's more uncommon cartes: only 2000 copies were printed. .

        (La.Fi.) Die Lagerfibel. (Ein Wegweiser für den inneren Dienstbetrieb in den F.A.D-Lagern).

      Berlin: Verlag \"Offene Worte\" 1933. Mit 38 Bildern u. Zeichn. i. Text. 73 (1) S., 1 Bl. Halbleinen d. Zeit. m. 2 Rückenschildern. 18x13 cm. - ein Vorsatzblatt fehlt, Vor- und Nachsatz etw. fleckig. -- äußerst selten! -- Der Freiwillige Arbeitsdienst (kurz FAD) war ein 1931 eingeführtes öffentlich gefördertes Beschäftigungsprogramm der Reichsanstalt für Arbeitsvermittlung und Arbeitslosenversicherung der Weimarer Republik. Zu den Trägern zählten Jugendbünde, Verbände, politische Parteien, konfessionelle Vereinigungen, Jugendgruppen, Bewegungen aller Art, Gewerkschaften, aber auch Militärfreunde und –gegner. Ende 1931 umfasste die Organisation zunächst nur 6.800 Personen. Bis Mitte 1932 stieg deren Zahl aber auf 97.000 Freiwillige an. Im Dezember 1932 erfuhren rund mehr als 241.000 Personen eine Förderung als Arbeitsdienstwillige im FAD. Nach der Machtübernahme Hitlers entstand 1935 schließlich der Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD), der für männliche Jugendliche zwischen 18 und 25 Jahren verpflichtend war. (zit. nach Wikipedia). -- Nach der \"Notverordnung des Reichspräsidenten zum Schutz von Volk und Staat\" vom 28. Februar 1933 und der damit verknüpften legalen Aufstellung der Hilfspolizei \"zur Abwehr kommunistischer staatsgefährdender Gewaltakte\" die Verhaftungswelle. Sie ermöglichte die \"Schutzhaft\" als vorbeugende Maßnahme zur \"Ausschaltung der von staatsfeindlichen Elementen drohenden Gefahren\". Zunächst wurden Funktionäre der KPD \"in Schutzhaft genommen\". Ihnen folgten bald Sozialdemokraten, Mitglieder des Reichsbanners, Gewerkschafter, Intellektuelle, widerstrebende bürgerliche Politiker und innerparteiliche Widersacher. Bald waren die Polizeigefängnisse überfüllt. Auf der Suche nach neuen Unterkünften für die \"Schutzhäftlinge\" griff man unter anderem auf die FAD-Lager des Reichsbanners zurück und wandelten diese in Konzentrationslager um. In diesen staatlichen Einrichtungen der Polizeidirektion übernahmen SA- oder SS-Hilfstruppen die Bewachung der Häftlinge.

        An exceptional rarity: large archive of material relating to the editing and publishing of Churchill’s Marlborough: His Life and Times , comprising 28 excellent content letters signed by Churchill, nearly all to his notorious proofreader, C.C. Wood, together with many other items accumulated in the creation of this masterpiece

      Various, 1933-1938. various. "John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, started his court service as a page during the reign of Charles II and ended it as Master-General of the Ordnance of the English army under George I. He served under five sovereigns, distinguished himself on the battlefield and as a diplomat, and was once even imprisoned in the Tower of London for treason. Handsome and charming— Lord Chesterfield described him as “irresistible to either man or woman”— Marlborough’s military strategy led the Duke of Wellington to say that he could “conceive nothing greater than Marlborough at the head of an English army.” Future prime minister Winston Churchill, who was named after Marlborough’s father and was the nephew of the Eighth Duke of Marlborough, wrote this history of his famous ancestor to refute earlier criticisms of Marlborough by the historian Thomas Babington Macaulay. “Though it was a commissioned work, Churchill would not have invested nearly a million words and ten years had it not had special significance for him. For he wrote about a man who was not only his ancestor, an invincible general, the first of what became the Spencer-Churchill dukes of Marlborough, and a maker of modern Britain, but also a supreme example of heroism in the two vocations which mainly interested Churchill and in which ultimate triumph seemed to have eluded him— politics and war making” (Wiedhorn, 110). “It may be his greatest book. To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough. Only in its pages can one glean an understanding of the root of the speeches which inspired Britain to stand when she had little to stand with” (Langworth, 164). “The scholarship seems formidable, as in no other of his works. Picking his way through conflicting testimony and evaluations, Churchill, while leaning on William Coxe’s 1818 biography of the duke, carefully weighs each writer’s reliability. Yet the tone is not as detached as might be expected from an academic historian… Marlborough, with his broad European view and his apparent sense of Britain’s imperial destiny, is the fulcrum, and all the other characters, parties, and issues take their places accordingly… the literati hostile to Marlborough— Pope, Swift, Thackeray, Macaulay— are harshly expelled from the witness stand” (Wiedhorn, 113-114).This archive of correspondence highlights both Churchill’s meticulousness as a writer and editor and his relationship with his editor Charles Wood. Although Charles Wood first worked with Churchill on his book Marlborough in the 1930’s, he was hired full-time in 1948 to proofread Churchill’s massive multi-volume work-in-progress, The Second World War, joining Churchill’s literary staff of secretaries (who typed on silent typewriters as Churchill dictated), research assistants, and advisors. Wood became “an essential member of the team and no error escaped his eye” (Gilbert VIII: 344). “The main addition to Churchill’s literary entourage in 1948 was Charles Wood— a retired proofreader who had worked on Marlborough in the 1930s. Slight and small, Wood was the same age as Churchill but did not smoke or drink. His main virtue… was ‘a ruthless eye for misprints and inconsistencies.…. A meticulous proofreader, Wood was pedantic and opinionated. This, as much as Churchill’s habitual parsimony, probably explains the reluctance to bring him on board. Even then, Churchill issued firm instructions about reducing, not increasing, the number of commas, identifying inconsistencies without arguing their merits, and certainly not going through original documents. But Wood was soon exceeding his brief in typically abrasive style….. [Churchill once called] Wood ‘indefatigable, interminable, intolerable— but he was determined not to repeat the errors in The Gathering Storm. So… [Wood] became a fixed if fractious member of Churchill’s team… [The work was] subjected to the green pen of Mr. Wood— a process that became known as ‘Wooding” (Reynolds, In Command of History: Churchill Fighting and Writing the Second World War, 149-150, 153).Typed letters signed from Churchill to C. C. Wood, chief copy editor at George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd. relating to the publication of his monumental biography Marlborough: His Life and Times. Most letters addressed “Dear Mr. Wood” in Churchill’s hand and all letters signed by Churchill in his hand unless otherwise noted. 1. April 18, 1933, one page: “I have sent you by Mr. Ashley the three last chapters for reprint. There will now come in quick succession all the chapters for final galley proof. I shall want twelve copies of all the reprints and you had better order any extra ones you may require yourselves. I am also send you the key to the new chaperisation—two copies so that you may send one to the printers.” Several corrections in Woods’ hand. “Dear Sir” and “Yours sincerely/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand. Two ink spots, pencil markings and underlinings.2. April 30, 1933, one page: “I am most carefully considering of course the question of modernising the old letters and documents. Up to the present I am modernising Marlborough’s letters and those of the Duchess where quoted, but I am not modernising old documents which are cited in the text for the purpose of creating atmosphere. It may be that a further revision will be necessary later on.” With diagonal line across page in ink. “Yours very sincerely/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.3. May 9, 1933, one page: “What do you advise about the old style and new style printing? Our plan is to print in old style events clearly English in their preponderance, and in new style those that are clearly Continental. When a date affects both England and the Continent we print both styles i.e. 4—14, 8—18. How should this be printed? Should it be a 4 with a diagonal line, or 4 on top of the 14 like a fraction, or 4 with 14 in brackets as you have done in certain dual dates. The complications of the year also comes in. It is very tiresome to the reader and should be minimized. Pray state what typography you advise.” Churchill has made two corrections in the text and inserted “sometimes” towards the end. In the left margin, in ink, he has shown three forms of the date. With diagonal line across page in ink. “Yours very sincerely/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.4. May 13, 1933, one page (small sheet): “Thank you for your letter. I am having the book carefully read by Mr. Marsh for his orthography, and will send him your instructions at the same time.” With diagonal line across page in ink. “Dear Sir” and “Yours W S Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.5. July 13, 1933, one and ½ page: “I send you herewith (1) a list of illustrations, (2) those photographs not already send you yesterday. From these two sets you can make up a complete series according to my table. The arrangement is provisional and the captions which require further study will be supplied later. In all there are 38 illustrations. As you mentioned 32, I have therefore marked 6 with red crosses which can if desired be omitted. Pray let me know promptly. I send you also 6 facsimiles, only one of which, the Camaret Bay Letter cannot be printed with the text. This letter requires special treatment. It never works to have a fold both ways i.e. with an angle in it. I have therefore been forced to cut the sheet so as to make two pages of equal length. This can be printed as simple fold-outs on the lines I have folded them which will be quite convenient to the reader and not get crumpled. A note will explain that the actual size of the document has thus been affected. This letter is vital to the text. The numerals which are provisional as regards order will be convenient for reference in our correspondence. You might decide on technical grounds whether N. 8 the Deed of Annuity and No. 25 Marlborough’s letter to William of Orange should not be interleaved instead of being printed in the text. On the whole I should prefer them interleaved. In addition to all these there are 13 maps and plans 3 of which fold out, 2 of them in two colours. All the rest make up in the text.” Two ink diagonal green lines across first page indicate it has been read. Light foxing and paper clip stain to left margin. “Dear Mr. Harrup” and “Yours sincerely/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.6. July 18, 1933, one page: “Marlborough illustrations. Do not for the present proceed with (5) Arabella, (19) Prince George of Denmark or (26) William III. I have found better pictures which I will send to you shortly. Do not proceed also with (4) Winston and Arabella, (16) Dartmouth, (22) Sunderland, (23) Rochester. Nos. 32, 33 and 34, Fenwick, Ailesbury and Shrewsbury could be reproduced as vignettes on one page. I am awaiting your letter about the illustrations.” Diagonal thin green line across page indicating it had been read. “Dear Sir” and “Yours sincerely/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.7. August 21, 1934, one page: “I send you herewith Volume I with the corrigenda dealt with. You will see from the enclosed letters that there are one or two extra points which have been brought to my notice. I accept all the corrections which are found in this volume and I am very much surprised to find how few errors there are—nearly all of which are trivial. Kindly note the dedication, page 7, also pages 53, 130, 132 and 358. I have dealt with Professor Trevelyan’s complaint. Do you not think there should be a short prefatory note to the new edition? If so I attach a draft.” Some spotting and browning to lower edge. “Dear Mr. Wood,” “month Index” and “Yours sincerely/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.8. January 9, 1935, one page: “I am not expecting to publish Volume III of Marlborough till the spring of 1936, as there is so much political distraction at the present time.” “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours sincerely/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.9. May 21, 1935, one page: “Please see the enclosed letter from Colonel Pakenham-Walsh and the sketches illustrating Ramillies. You said that if instead of going to Swaines I would come to you, you could save me much expense for the drawings of Volume III. Could you let me know what you can do about them. These sketches of course are only in the rough, and I have to put my own comments upon them. Therefore kindly send them back after using them to explain to the draftsman the kind of work he would be expected to do…” With date correction in Churchill’s hand. “Dear Mr. Wood” and “21st” and “Yours WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.10. May 28, 1935, one page: “Would there be any objection to my seeing if I can get a competitive offer from Swaine? He might be ready to come down in price himself, and it would be convenient to work with him as he knows my methods. If he is not prepared to come near to the new level, I shall certainly put myself in your hands.” “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours very truly/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.11. August 6, 1935, one page: “I send you herewith chapters V and VI which have been completely reconstituted and a new chapter, VIII. For your convenience I append a list of the chapters; VII ‘The Year of Triumph’ is nearly done. It may be possible to cut down the correspondence later. I also send you chapters I, II and III for second revise, leaving only ‘The Battle of Ramillies’ which I will send in a few days. Pray let me have six copies of all these as they come through. I will send you very shortly a number of maps and I shall be glad if your man would draw them out and let me have them in draft. Please therefore make the arrangement you proposed with him. I will not worry about Swain’s.” With “for revise” in Churchill’s hand. [Together with one page of typed list of chapters]. “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours sincerely/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.12. October 10, 1935, one and ½ pages: “Many thanks for your letter. The aid I want is not researching but checking and verifying facts which have already been ascertained. I will dictate a section of a chapter from the many works of reference I have read. I will then mark the various points which require to be more precisely verified, for instance the actual words of a quotation, the exact reference in the footnotes, dates, names, chronology, etc. This is very similar to the work which your readers already do when they read the proofs only it would be rather more extended. At the same time as I send the section for checking I will mention the books where the references occur and give the closest indication I have as to where they can be found. This will enable me to get on a good deal more quickly. Let us anyhow make the experiment and see what trouble is involved for your staff.” With notes “abouts in the books” and “Also I will send some of the books you may not have. W.” in Churchill’s hand. “Dear Mr. Wood” and “With many thanks/ Yours sincerely/ W S Churchill” in Churchill’s hand. Rust stain from paper clip at upper left corner.13. October 14, 1935, one page: “I send you another chapter [in pencil in another hand, “Chapter XI, ‘Harley’”]. There are a good many queries in my mind about it, but it is maturing sufficiently to be printed straight away. I will then read it over and mark the points which require special attention. I am afraid there will now be a break in Marlborough of at least six weeks. But I hope you will have Oudenards before Christmas. The back is then broken.” “Dear Mr. Wood” and Yours v(ery) t(ruly)/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.14. March 2, 1936, one page: “I now send you Chapter XVII (re-numbered) ‘The Winter Struggle’ All the chapters after XI or XII require renumbering, as a new one has come in. I should be glad to have this chapter back in priority after the first and before the main block of reprints. Six reprints will be required in all cases. I see no advantage in spelling Wynendaele ‘Wynendale.’ Marlborough always uses the shorter version, but we can discuss this later when the general question of names is considered. Meanwhile stet ‘dale.’ I think the principle to adopt about modernising the letters is to print the new ones which first see the light in their old style and modernise the rest. At any rate do not worry about these changes at this stage in the work.” Pen and ink notations in another hand. “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours sincerely/ WSC” in Churchill’s hand.15. April 28th,1936, one page: “I send you herewith two chapters and also a number of documents which you have already printed. These documents should be inserted in the proofs where I have marked them. I presume they are still in type so will not have to be set up again. I have not modernised them at this stage as they have never yet been published. We shall have to consider later on whether these letters should go into an appendix. It will be easy to lift them from the text as they are in sold blocks. Of course I should very much like to have these chapters back again by Saturday afternoon. I fear however this will not be possible.” Pencil and ink notations in another hand. “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours v(ery) t(ruly)/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.16. June 5, 1936, one page: “Yours of June 3: Will you kindly ask your brother for a list of all the plans on which he is working which have not been made into zinco blocks, and what state they are in and what is holding them up. I will then deal with each point.” Diagonal green ink line across page.“Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours v(ery) t(ruly)/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.17. June 16th, 1936, one page: “I have now reached a series of chapters beginning with The Seventh Campaign which have been so recently revised that they do not require immediate reprint. Before I send them in I am anxious to have the maps especially of Oudenarde and Lille. The Brigadier has sent me a list of maps in chronological order of which I send you a copy ticked showing their condition. Perhaps you would mark on this the ones already included in the proofs. Could you accelerate as much as possible the completion of the others which are passed finally in ink.” “Yours sincerely/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand. Rust stain from paper clip to upper left corner.18. June 22nd, 1936, one page (small sheet): “Please note where I have said a new slip is to be taken, these pages have to be interleaved in several various chapters.” “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours sincerely WSC” in Churchill’s hand.19. July 8, 1936, one page: With regard to the letters quoted in the text, I will finally decide about any cuts in these when the final slip-proofs leave me. As I am having one more re-print, I do not alter them now, neither do I deal with all your queries, ‘spelling, capitals and punctuation’. I think the original letters now published for the first time had better be printed in their original form subject only to an occasional adjustment to make them read intelligently. All the other letters already published by various authors should be modernised upon a regular principle. Perhaps in sending me back this new re-print you will ask your readers to carry this out in pencil throughout.” Lengthy notes in red ink by a copy editor in blank left margin and underlinings to text. “Yours very truly/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.20. July 17, 1936, one page: “Sketch 46. This does not give a good idea, as La Motte is obviously going to reach Wynendale before the convoy gets within miles of it. Actually La Motte should be further back where I have shown in red, and the convoy further forward. Sketch 42. Berwick ought to be in the same type as Vendome as he is a foe and not a friend. Can these alterations be made without redrawing and re-engraving? How long will it take, and how much will it cost?” [signed in secretarial hand]. Together with two printed maps, each 7.5 by 10 inches, with wide margins, one map bearing corrections in red ink by Churchill of troop movements of the French commander La Motte. Included is a photocopy of the map, captioned “Situation, Morning September 28” from Chapter XXVI “Wynendael,” showing Churchill’s red ink corrections specified in the letter. The other map, corrected as per Churchill’s instructions, is in Chapter XXV “The Siege of Lille,” captioned “August 27—September 5, 1708.” Signed in secretarial hand.21. July 18, 1936, one page: “I send you herewith a note for the ‘blurb’ about which one of your colleagues wrote to me. You see I have wavered between the present and past tense. Pray take this as a contribution and let me see what you propose to write upon it.” Pencil notations in another hand. “Dear Mr. Wood,” “Also 3 more pictures” and “Yours very truly/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.22. August 1, 1936, one page: “You send me a new copy of the enclosed map. It is already in the text, and I commented on it on the proofs ‘Where is Villeroy?’ Also Ghent and Bruges should (I think) be black as they were in Marlborough’s hands. I am sending a duplicate of this letter to the Brigadier. It is of the utmost importance now to know where the remaining maps are. I will get on with the preface as soon as I have completed the chapters. I agree with what you said about the spelling of Wynendael. By all means continue the spelling as ‘dale.’” Attached on the upper left is a small printed map captioned in another hand “Flanders: July 1706/ Sketch 14 (slip 199).” Two green ink lines on page. “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours sincerely/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.23. August 1, 1936, one page: “I have altered the Ramillies text so as not to be dependent on the old map, which I cannot find. I must ask the Brigadier to make a folder of the Ramillies as well as the one of Oudenarde now under construction. There will have to be a general map of the Low Countries, but that can be repeated with a few more places in it from Volume II, also a general map of Europe and the theatres which can likewise be repeated. The Ramillies playing card was photographed by the King’s librarian. It is very old, small and well-worn, and I doubt if any new photograph would be any better. There is no reason why you should not make a print of it slightly larger, and let us see how it looks. I return it to you herewith meanwhile. You have everything now, so far as illustrations and facsimiles are concerned. I shall keep you well supplied day by day with chapters.” Green ink lines and underlinings, rust stain from paper clip on top of page. Signed “WSC” and with a few words in his hand (“with a few more places in it”). 24. August 3, 1936, two pages: “I send you now everything except the last chapters. Mr. Deakin will be with you tomorrow. There are a number of points for him from the ‘Jacobite Raid’ chapter onwards, nor are Mr. Marsh’s corrections in from that point. Some of these chapters are a good deal pulled about, and if you think fit you had better put them into slip again, keeping enough of the earlier chapters to go on continuously with the page proofing. Chapter 19 about Ghent and Bruges is split in two, altering the numbers thereafter. I do not feel like a lengthy preface, nor is it worth your while to await it. I will, however, do it next before I finish the last chapter, if you wish. What maps are still outstanding? Please discuss all these points with Mr. Deakin. Would you mind asking your proof readers to put down quite clearly their rule about hyphen words. I do not like Mr. Marsh’s very full use of hyphens, but what rule do you follow? Macaulay frequently runs the words together with a hyphen, e. g. ‘panicstricken.’ The great thing is to have a principle and stick to it. With regard to modernization of letters, here is the rule. All letters which have been printed before, unless specially marked by me, should be modernised as you have proposed. All original letters or letters inserted because of their archaic character should only be corrected here and there as I have done for punctuation and to make sense. Contrary to what is said in the preliminary note, all starred documents will have in addition a footnote, Blenheim mss or other source. All spellings of places must agree with the maps unless the maps are definitely wrong. With regard to numbers, I think the following will work: viz. When there is a computation of armies in battalions, squadrons, etc. numerals should be used. Where there are broken numbers, e. g. 7,500 ditto. When numerals are used in some old quoted letter “. Otherwise it is better to spell. In sending these proofs to the printers, please enforce this system. I find we are in practise spelling almost everything and I must say it runs better except as mentioned.” Included are twelve edits in Churchill’s hand including five words. Titles of seven chapters from Vol. III are penciled at top of first page in another hand. “I do not like the high punctuation… Yours very truly/ Winston S. Churchill,” “Dear Mr. Wood” and 12 ink edits including five words in Churchill’s hand.25. November 28, 1937, two pages: “Illustrations. Kindly send me a list of the sixteen photographs and two prints which I sent you. With regard to your observations: 1. I never thought that Malplaquet and Bouchain should go on one page. On the contrary I contemplated a flap-out for Bouchain one. 2. I agree with you about Wolf; it must be cancelled. 3. Cancel also Godolphin, Shrewsbury, Burnet, Marlborough 11 and Marlborough 13. I must try to find another Marlborough for the frontispiece. Perhaps I can find a miniature. 4. Cancel also Nos. 14 and 16, Cadogan and George I are already used. 5. We must try to find better ones of Blenheim for 17 and 18. These two prints are cancelled. Out of the 16 photographs eight are rejected. This leaves us with eight. I now send you: (a) Lord Orrery (b) Duke of Argyll (c) Jonathan Swift (d) Craggs (the younger) (e) The Old Pretender (or alternatively 9e) 2, whichever is thought the better (f) Townshend (g) Cowper (h) Ormonde (i) Vanbrugh. These have been procured from the National Gallery by Mr. Deakin, and he has been asked to supply the captions for them. Thus I send you the nine, which with the other eight, makes a total of seventeen. It is increasingly difficult to find illustrations which have not been used in the previous volumes. I shall be very glad of any suggestions which you, or your proof readers, feel able to make. Good progress is being made with the maps. I fear we shall not be able to get the book finished by the end of the year; but I hope to have it finally off my hands by the end of February.” Together with a sheet in another hand with more information about the portraits. Two words and “Yours very truly/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.26. December 14, 1937, one page: “This is an addition to the chapter called The New Regime. You could make the slips 200 A, B, C etc. I do not think it necessary to reprint Chapters XX to XXV at present, as their condition has very nearly reached its final form. I send you the latest Contents Table whch will enable you to keep track of the various changes which impose themselves at this stage. The five chapters following those you now have, namely XX to XXIV inclusive, do not require reprint at this stage, as there are not structural changes, and the minor revisions can be effected on the current proof.” Accompanied by two carbon typed pages of the contents of Vol. IV. “Sincerely WSC” in Churchill’s hand. Some foxing.27. January 1, 1938, one page: “I am very much obliged to you for the extraordinary expedition with which the whole of the eight chapters have been returned. I send you the enclosed letter to Mr. Harrap, which kindly read and deliver to him. Perhaps you will inform me upon the points mentioned. In my absence please keep in touch with Mr. Deakin. All letters to Chartwell will be forwarded to me.” “My dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours v(er)y t(ruly)/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand. Rust stain from paper clip to top of page.28. January 4, 1938, two pages: “I send you herewith three chapters in which I have made heavy cuts, in order to see how the changes will look. We waste space in having a great many extracts of only five or six lines in small print; there are the short heads, there are the dates and the white lines attaching to each of them. It is much better in these small extracts to use the large type in inverted commas, and run straight through the paragraph with dots representing omissions where necessary. I have also run several letters together, separated by dots to make one continuous paragraph, although retained in small print. In this case there will be no quotation marks the necessary phrases such as ‘Marlborough wrote to so-and-so’ or ‘so-and-so reported to Marlborough’ should either go in a square bracket as you have sometimes done or merely protected by commas. You will see specimens of both these methods applied in the abridged text. I think there is more to be said for the square brackets but let me know your view. Please send two copies only of each of these chapters to me in three separate envelopes at the Chateau de l’Horizon, Cannes, as soon as possible. Have any of the diagrams to be inserted in the text yet been put on the stone? I have passed at least twenty. Please get in touch with the Brigadier and with your brother and have all I have passed put on the stone and struck off. There will be others still to come but let us get as many as we can. Will you write to me also about reducing the index to twenty pages. I hope you got the blurb all right. It was intended for a guide and you are at liberty to make additions to it as the responsibility for it rests with the firm. It would be well, however, to send me a proof if time permits. Pray write to me fully on these various points.” Titles of the three chapters from Vol. IV are penciled at top of the first page in another hand, on letterhead of the British Embassy, Paris. “Yours very truly/ Winston S. Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.29. October 29th, 1938, one page (small sheet): “I am aware of no correction which I desire to make, and I have not noticed any serious mistakes pointed out by the reviewers.” On smaller sheet, with handwritten note by Churchill: “I enclose you a letter wh has reached me. Yours truly, W. S. Churchill.” “Dear Mr. Wood” and “Yours very truly/ WS Churchill” in Churchill’s hand.30. Together with: One large page of a gallery proof entitled “Marlborough—II Slip 241D,” 10 by 14 inches. Tear at mid-horizontal fold in blank margin, not near writing, expertly repaired on verso. Edits in red and blue pencil with 22 words in Churchill’s hand: “in the history of the Fall of the House of Stuart has bequeathed us a monumental work” and “Imperial commander Prince Louis of Badin” along with cross-outs and other editorial marks. 31. May 30, 1933, a Typed Letter Signed with Churchill's handwritten salutation and closing, yet signature excised.32. 12 letters dated between July of 1933 and April of 1938 with excellent content concerning the book, copious annotations (possibly some in Churchill's hand), and signed secretarially for Churchill.33. 14 pages of proof corrections, copiously annotated in multiple hands (possibly some by Churchill).34. 2 proof maps, one showing Minorca, the other Piedmont and Lombardy, giving troop positions and showing the positions of opposing armies and lines of circumvallation.35. 10 telegrams sent from Churchill to Wood, as well as several other miscellaneous notes.

      Early Reprint London Constable 1933 Second Printing of the Second Edition, new and enlarged (pp. 282-86 list "New and Additional Cocktails"), of this classic mixology guide. Signed by Craddock, in very elegant script, on copyright page: "Here's How! / Harry Craddock / December 10, 1934." 8vo: 287,[1]pp. Publisher's finely woven tangerine cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in black, decorative end papers; wanting the dust jacket. Presented in two parts: Cocktails and Wines with an introduction by "Colette." A superlative example, square, tightly bound, internally fresh and bright, virtually pristine, with the author's scarce autograph. Fine ¶ First published in 1930, three years before this new and enlarged edition (complete with all of Gilbert Rumbold's stylish color illustrations from the first edition). A compendium featuring some 750 of Craddock's popular classics, including the famous Corpse Reviver #2, which he invented, and the Dry Martini, which he popularized. Craddock decamped to London's Savoy Hotel after Prohibition put a crimp on his career in the United States. His bar book was one of the first to not only list drink recipes but also to provide a wine guide. (Craddock contended every good bartender possessed a solid wine knowledge.) It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight in the years between the Wars. The legendary Savoy opened in 1889; César Ritz was its first manager, and Auguste Escoffier created its fine cuisine. N. B.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, 2pp., Trinity College, Cambridge, January 8, 1936. With embroidered napkin, framed, referenced in letter, and with Autograph Letter Signed and Typed Document Signed from philosopher and colleague G. E. Moore endorsing Ambroise's continuing study in "Finitism" within the philosopohy of mathematics

      Philosophy professor Wittgenstein writes to Alice Ambroise, American philosopher and former student saying it would take a book to explain why he disagrees with her, notes his immodesty by quoting Swift, and sends a New Years gift included. Wittgenstein returned to Cambridge University for the 1933-4 term which he began his by providing two sets of lectures: one entitled, "Philosophy," and the other, "Philosophy for Mathematicians." He distributed these lectures to his class and gave them to his five favorite students including Alice Ambroise. This duplicated set of notes was bound in blue paper covers and has been known ever since as "The Blue Book." Another set of notes created in 1934-5 was an attempt by Wittgenstein to formulate the results of his own work and became known as "The Brown Book" which was dictated to Alice Ambroise among others. Ambroise worked with Wittgenstein on this for between two and four hours daily, four days per week. By July of 1935, Wittgenstein had begun to accuse many of plagiarizing his work. During the dictation of "The Brown Book," Ambroise encountered Wittgenstein's wrath. Encouraged by G. E. Moore, Ambroise planned to publish in "Mind" an article entitled "Finitism in Mathematics" where she would present what she understood to be Wittgenstein's view. The article upset Wittgenstein who requested that she not to publish the article. She refused, but Wittgenstein ultimately did not blame her, rather he blamed the academics who encouraged her to publish the article. Wittgenstein broke off his working relationship with Ambroise as a result. She returned to the United States to teach. Wittgenstein writes our letter after their break occurred. "It was very nice of you to send me the detective mags. I've been reading one of them on my way from Vienna to Cambridge & enjoyed it thoroughly. The enclosed handkerchief is a belated New Year present. I got your letter about 8 weeks ago but didn't answer it for it seemed to me to be in a sense all wrong, & at the same time felt that I'd have to write a book to explain why. But the gist of what I could have written is expressed in a wonderful saying of Swift's which I found quoted somewhere: 'No man ever made an ill figure who understood his own talents, nor a good one who mistook them'. But if an angel came from heaven to tell you this, I wonder if you'd believe him. It is damn difficult to be modest in your heart; I know this because I lack modesty myself. (Though of course it's easy for me to say a few modest sounding things). I wish you lots of good luck, good thoughts & decent feelings." The letter is written and signed in black fountain pen, "Ludwig Wittgenstein". His New Year's gift of the embroidered napkin, as referenced in the letter, is included and separately framed with the unframed letter. Three years after he penned this letter, Wittgenstein was offered the prestigious Chair of Philosophy at Cambridge. Letters of Wittgenstein are rare. Images and price on request. Three years after he penned this letter, Wittgenstein was offered the prestigious Chair of Philosophy at Cambridge. G. E. Moore, Autograph Letter Signed, 4to, Cambridge, April 24, 1935. He writes that he acted "as Supervisor to Miss Ambroise during the first year" and endorses her "re-election to the studentship she now holds."she would "profit by a further year's research in Cambridge,'' He signs, "G. E: Moore." The letter is followed by a Typed Document Signed the next month, Cambridge, May 13, 1935, giving further details of her study. Moore notes her research subject in the "so-called 'Finitist' school in the philosophy of mathematics...." Signed, "G. E. Moore, Professor of Philosophy." Alice Ambrose (1906-2001), American philosopher who studied with Wittgenstein and G. E. Moore at Cambridge and earned her second doctoral degree in 1938 from Cambridge University. She taught philosophy first at University of Michigan then for most of her career at Smith College. Focused on analytical philosophy, her early works include "Fundamentals of Symbolic Logic" (1948) and "The Theory of Formal Inference" (1962) along with several papers published in the 1930s on mathematics, pi, and the mind. She co-authored with her husband, Morris Lazerowitz (1907-87) "Essays in Analysis" (1966), "Philosophical theories" (1976) and "Essays in the Unknown Wittgenstein" (1984). G.E. Moore, author of the groundbreaking "Principia Ethica" (1903) had been one of the first to welcome the young Wittgenstein on his arrival at Cambridge in 1911. They met regularly after Wittgenstein's return to Cambridge in 1929, Wittgenstein acknowledged the importance to him of Moore's views.

She married the heir to Lang Syne, one of the state's richest plantations, which became the setting for Roll, Jordan, Roll" (Roth, 101 Books). Peterkin was at the time applauded for her telling of the accounts which accompanied Ulman's portraits, despite their paternalistic tone. Parr & Badger I, 135; Roth, p. 78.

      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode 1933. First Cheap Edition. Uncommon in jacket. Octavo, pp.381. Original lilac cloth in photographic dust wrapper. Minor edgewear, some light toning else a clean, fine copy. WSC's second book, written while he was still an Army officer, describes the background to the Sudan conflict between the British forces under Lord Kitchener and the fanatical Islamic Jihadists led by a self proclaimed second prophet of Islam, the relationship of the Upper Nile to Egypt, the murder of General Charles George Gordon in the siege at Khartoum, the political reaction in England, and Kitchener's elaborate preparations for the war.

      First Edition, as stated New York Harcourt, Brace 1933 First Issue (silver-blue cloth), one of 5400 copies ("no known breakdown between the [three] various issues"?Wilson). 8vo: [8],310pp, with frontispiece and 15 further photographs.

A Fine, unread copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a better than Near Fine jacket with brief edge wear, slight toning to spine, few stray spots on back panel. Haas & Gallup XXI. Wilson A20a. Fine From May to August 1933, several chapters of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. The book was not available until August, and in the United States the first printing sold out by August 22, nine days before the official publication date. At the age of 59, Stein had become a popular success. As she explained in Everybody's Autobiography (1937): "Well anyway it was a beautiful autumn in Bilignin and in six weeks I wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas and it was published and it became a best seller . . . I bought myself a new eight-cylinder Ford car and the most expensive coat make to order by Hermes . . . I had never made any money before in my life and I was most excited. "Gertrude Stein's life-long companion, Alice B. Toklas, is the narrator of this book written by Stein, which describes their life together in Paris from Alice's point of view. Thus, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas is not, in fact, Alice B. Toklas's autobiography; instead it is Gertrude Stein's idea of what such a book might look like. . . . [It] can also be described as a selective history of artistic and literary developments in Paris in the 1910s and 1920s, [with] witty stories of how Stein and her brother Leo began to collect early paintings by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso . . . first-hand accounts of numerous social gatherings, including the famous banquet for Rousseau given by Picasso and his wife . . . [and, in] one frequently cited story, Alice explain[ing] that, at a dinner party with many of the well know artists in Paris at the time, 'After a while I murmured to Picasso that I liked his portrait of Gertrude Stein. Yes, he said, everybody says that she does not look like it but that does not make any difference, she will, he said.' . . .

Outstanding Autograph Letter Signed, 6 pp on 3 sheets, 4to, Bimini, BWI, June 28, 1936

      In this timely and substantial letter, Hemingway responds to Abner Green's request to write press releases for The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. Hemingway's opinions are clear, especially with the suggestion that he write about the "murder of sending people guilty of political offenses back to Fascist countries and advocating some provisions for the right of asylum for political refugees." Specifically, he describes the brutal murder of Otto Richter, a 21-year old anti-Nazi German who had fled to the United States in 1933. Hemingway refers to his Esquire and Cosmopolitan magazine articles and Cuban politics. This a remarkable letter. Additional background information on the letter follows the text: "Dear Green...Was in Cuba 6 weeks working on something and did not see your Richter releases or [other] releases as P.O. not forward 2nd class mail. However, you're so much better than my own conscience that sometimes wonder if you must not feel pretty happy at what a good man you are. Certainly you have a damned worthy job and presumably are being paid for doing it as well and you have the satisfaction of being morally superior to Guerillas or just call it bandits.. O.K. pal. To please you and see what difference it would make haven't written an Esquire article for 4 months. Have given them 2 good stories I could have sold elsewhere...and have been working like a son of a bitch... Now I am a shit because I've sold my 3rd story in 4 years to Cosmopolitan. The other two were good stories and so is this one. You go to hell. Now what do you want me to do about your press releases? By the time they catch up with me is too late to protest as now on Richter who you have sadly on 13th and today is 18th and you sent that one by airmail. Will you write a telegram to be addressed to Sec. Perkins which I can sign and you send and I pay for. any such cases. Can have it on file in KW office of Western Union and you wire there collect giving name of deportee etc. and the girl there will send it and charge it to me. Or do you want me to write an Esquire piece on the murder of sending people guilty of political offenses back to Fascist countries and advocating some provisions for the right of asylum for political refugees. It is a subject I can write a good piece on. In that case please give me list of cases and their disposition. Also information as to what countries would accept Richter for instance if he were deported to another country than Germany. What do you think would be proper solution if a man is convicted of illegal entry? Give him a choice of where to be deported? What countries will accept him under that circumstance? As I see it the principal difficulty is that a political refugee now cannot enter legally since he must make an escape from his own country therefore his is always liable for illegal entry and you've got to find a legal way to pass him on somewhere else or provide for asylum of political refugees. Otherwise you are simply going to publicize an endless series of deportations which is o.k. if anybody wants martyrs but god damned impractical as tactics. Will you please write me this [doll] to Box 406-Key West-Fla. Anyway out west with my wife and [Bob} The [kids] middle of July and will take your [doll] with me and write a piece or will send the telegrams. Arrange for them in advance or both. I didn't answer your letter before this one about mu stuff because it was so bloody righteous. Maybe it wasn't. What the hell. Anyway if righteousness is your bread and cheeze [sic] and red wine for Christ sake eat and drink it well. People in the church die happiest. It doesn't matter what form the church takes and if feeling superior is all you've got for Christ sake feel superior. I get the same kick when I write a good story. Send me the dope. I'm sorry as hell about Richter. I'm also sorry they took a pal of mine out 4 weeks ago and broke both his ankles, pounded his balls, broke all his finger bones and then poured a gallon of gas over him and set him on .fire alongside the road to Gruajoy [?]. As near as anyone can figure the couldn't make him talk either. Nobody's gotten it since. What are you doing about Batista and Jose Pedraza? What do you know about what the last names has been getting away with? or do the fish bit too good with money and Cosmopolitan stories have to be written in the afternoons? You've a nice lead there for the next time you [pan.] Pan [sic] ahead pal. I'll be a son of a bitch if I'm [?] to want any friends...." .." Signed, "So hay, Good luck Ernest Hemingway.''. Abner Green, a writer, was in charge of educational materials for the American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born (ACPFB) and would become its Executive Secretary of from 1941 to 1959. As the person in charge of publicity and educational materials for the ACPFB, it would have been Green who sent out press releases on various issues the committee was addressing. Hemingway is referring to the press releases that Green was sending out regarding Otto Richter , a German immigrant who became a cause celebre. Fleeing Nazi Germany, Richter got to the United States in 1936, but faced deportation back to Germany where he likely would have been killed. A protest movement supporting Richter and a letter writing campaign to Pres. Roosevelt, failed. Richter went on a hunger strike, wound up in the hospital and was finally granted permission to emigrate to Mexico. The US and Mexico had agreed to allow some refugees arriving in America to be relocated to Mexico. According to "The Mexican Right: The End of Revolutionary Reform, 1929-1940," by John W. Sherman (Praeger, 1997), Richter was one of the "leftists whom New York communists routed to Mexico - spared from certain death in Germany." However, our research makes it unclear whether Richter was actually a communist at the time or whether he was so labeled in the 1950s when the ACPFB was also deemed communist, not just left leaning. Among the press releases that Abner Green must have sent out and to which Hemingway referred, were the following, each with further interesting bits of information on Richter and the American Committee for the Protection of Foreign. -In the July 11, 1936 issue of the "Oakland Times," an article reads, "The American Committee for the Protection of Foreign Born New York announced today that arrangements have been made to give Otto Richter… German awaiting deportation, 30 days to leave the United States… Richter, arrested here [San Francisco] during the 1934 longshoremen's strike, expressed fear of Nazi retaliation if he was deported to his native country. He was active against the Nazis prior to 1933, he informed immigration officials… has been held at Ellis Island since June 12, but was freed yesterday under $1000 bail furnished by the committee." The article further states that Richter was hoping that he would be granted permission from "some foreign country" to go there with his 19-year old American wife. In the October 5, 1936 issue of the Reading [Pennsylvania] Times, an article notes that the ACPFB announced that Mexican authorities had consented to receive Richter as a "political exile." It further notes, "Last June he marched down Broadway with a sign on his back saying 'Shoot me'. He contended he would suffer that fate if sent back to Germany. And, in the Indianapolis Star of October 6, 1936, an article entitled "Nazi Foe Gets Refuge," it is stated that "Otto Richter, 21 years old, anti-Nazi German, who fled his native land three years ago, has obtained permission to enter Mexico as a political refugee, the American Committee for the Protection of Foreign Born announced today. Richter and his American-born wife will leave for agencies caring for the sick."[Seems this quote should read "leave with agencies…"]. A correspondence between Hemingway and Green began when Green, using his pen name Paul Harris, wrote an open letter to Hemingway, entitled "Please Mr. Hemingway!" which appeared in "The American Criteria," December 1, 1935. He implored Hemingway to stop writing the kind of stories he was writing for "Esquire Magazine" and instead to write of more important issues. The letter was distributed by The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. From this letter, a correspondence developed between Green and Hemingway. As a result of Green's call to Hemingway to take on the issue of immigrants, both men began a correspondence which would likely include this letter. Hemingway became the Co-Chairman of the Committee of Sponsors of the American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. The other Co-Chairman was Dr. William Allan Neilson, a Scottish-born American and President of Smith College who advocated for the acceptance of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany into the United States. The open letter to Hemingway is referenced in "The Legacy of Abner Green: A Memorial Journal," edited by Harry Carlisle, published by the ACPFB in 1959. This is referred to in "Ernest Hemingway. Supplement to Ernest Hemingway: A Comprehensive Bibliography," by Andre Hanneman, p. 146.  The open letter is reprinted in "Hemingway and the Mechanism of Fame," by Matthew Bruccoli, University of South Carolina Press, 2006. The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born [ACPFB ]was founded in 1933 on "the initiative of Roger Baldwin of the ACLU to defend constitutional rights of foreign-born persons in the United States. The new organization assisted individuals facing deportation, aided persons seeking to become naturalized citizens, attempted to combat harassment and official persecution of the foreign-born, and opposed discriminatory legislation." [See University of Michigan Special Collections summary of the Records of the Committee 1926-1980s, The Joseph A. Labadie Collection;]. The ACPFB also supported the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade - Americans who fought in the Spanish Civil War. While there is no mention of Hemingway in the papers at the University of Michigan, the connection to Hemingway is clear. During the Spanish Civil War, Hemingway reported for the North American Newspaper "Alliance" and was a proponent of the Republicans against the Fascists. The ACPFB was formally dissolved in 1982 when it was absorbed by the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee. Hemingway's reference to "Sec. Perkins," in our letter suggests that Green might have been thinking of having him write a telegram to Perkins who served as President Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor at the time. Senator Frances Perkins became the first woman to serve as a cabinet secretary and she is considered the "principal architect of the New Deal. " She is known especially for the Social Security Act which she spearheaded in 1935. Perkins held a firm stand on the issue of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany and worked diligently to force FDR and America to take in refugees. Until 1940, the Department of Labor was in charge of immigration and naturalization. According to the University of Michigan website, "Throughout its history, the Committee was run by a small staff, with considerable assistance from those sponsors who served as honorary chairpersons. Abner Green was executive secretary from 1941 to 1959.

      Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband im Großformat 30 x 42 cm) mit fotoillustriertem Deckeltitel. 63 Seiten, ohne Zählung, Schrift: Fraktur, Druckvermerk: " N i c h ti mf r e i e nV e r k a u f " und vielen - teilweise ganzseitigen - Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (diese mit Bildunterschriften wie z.B.: "Die gespannten Blicke der Kreisleiter und Amtsleiter der Gauleitung bei den Fragen des Reichsorganisationsleiters an die Anwärter / Man betrachte den erwartungsvollen Blick und das rassisch gute Aussehen des Anwärters / Der Arzt, SA-Sanitäts-Brigadeführer Dr. Streck, ein alter Parteigenosse, Träger des Blutordens der NSDAP und Amtsleiter der Reichsleitung der NSDAP, bei der Auslese"). - Aus dem Inhalt: Worte des Führers und des Reichsorganisationsleiters der NSDAP - Der Weg zur nationalsozialistischen Ordensburg - Wie werden nun diese Parteigenossen auf den Ordensburgen zu Führern der NSDAP herangebildet? - Wie wir unsere Anwärter musterten - Der Aufbau der nationalsozialistischen Erziehungsarbeit für die Politischen Leiter in der Partei und den angeschlossenen Verbänden - Unsere Ordensburg Vogelsang (Eifel): Gesamtansicht und Teilaufnahmen - Unsere Ordensburg Crössinsee (Pommern): Gesamtansicht und Teilaufnahmen - Unsere Ordensburg Sonthofen (Allgäu): Gesamtansicht und Teilaufnahmen - Anschreiben an Gauleiter der NSDAP, von O. Marrenbach - Meine Rede bei der Musterung des Führernachwuchses im Traditionsgau München-Oberbayern - Triumph der Technik (Fotostrecke mit Bildern von Waschsählen, Küche, Heizung und Kraftanlage) - Das Wachsen und Werden der nationalsozialistischen Ordensburgen. - Mit zeittypischen Ausführungen wie z.B.: "Der gigantische Kampf, den der Führer und seine Gefolgsmänner 14 Jahre lang um die politische Macht geführt haben, war die beste Auslese und ein ununterbrochenes Exerzitium für die nationalsozialistische Weltanschauung. Die Männer, die dem Rufe des Führers folgten, mussten zumindest anders sein als die große breite Masse des Volkes. Denn wer sich unter den damals vorhandenen 47 politischen Parteien Deutschlands ausgerechnet die kleinste und nach den damals herrschenden Begriffen des Weimarer Systems die bedeutungsloseste und die von allen verfolgt, beleidigt und beschimpft wurde, aussuchte, der musste eigenwillig und eigensinnig, mutig und tapfer, opfer- und einsatzbereit zugleich sein. Wer diese Tugenden des Mannestums nicht besaß, wurde durch den ununterbrochenen Kampf, den diese Bewegung führte, augenblicklich wieder ausgemerzt. Denn von früh bis spät war jeder Tag für die Mitglieder dieser Partei ein einziger Opfergang. Von Zeit zu Zeit schaltete das Schicksal dann besonders schwere Prüfungen für die Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei ein, und wer dann noch nicht bis zum letzten geläutert war, fiel alsdann ab und verließ unsere Reihen. Mit einem Wort: der Kampf des Führers und seiner Partei war eine nie erreichte Auslese und Erziehung von Kämpfern für ein politisches Ideal. Darüber müssen wir uns klar sein das war nun nur einmal und wird in der Geschichte Deutschlands und aller Völker einzigartig dastehen und ist durch nichts zu ersetzen, und damit sind auch die Männer, die aus diesem Kampf als die endgültigen Führer des neuen Deutschlands hervorgegangen sind, einmalig und einzigartig. Auch das ist ein Beweis für die Behauptung, daß die nationalsozialistische Revolution eine von den ganz wenigen Revolutionen im Laufe der Jahrtausende darstellt, die war und echt ist . . . Diese Auslese und dieser Kampf fanden mit dem 30. Januar 1933 nach außen ihren Abschluss. Von nun ab war die Partei nicht mehr verfolgt, sondern sie herrschte. Es fanden keine Saalschlachten mehr statt, vielmehr wurden die übrigen Parteien aufgelöst und verschwanden . . . Jedoch der Führer und seine alte Garde wussten, daß jetzt erst der eigentliche Kampf begann. Es galt nun, diese Erkenntnis in den Mitgliedern der NSDAP immer wieder und von neuem wachzuhalten und die Führer der Partei, Politische Leiter, SA-, SS-, NSKK- und Hitler-Jugendführer auf die nun kommende Phase des Kampfes um Deutschland vorzubereiten und auszurichten. Um es klar zu sagen, dieser Kampf um Deutschland ist erst dann beendigt, wenn der letzte anständige Deutsche Nationalsozialist geworden ist und die nationalsozialistische Weltanschauung im Volk so verankert ist, daß für Jahrhunderte und Jahrtausende niemand anders den Anspruch auf die geistige Führung Deutschlands erheben kann als die Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei" / "Wir werden Ihren Charakter, Ihren Mut und Ihre Disziplin immer wieder prüfen. Wenn Sie diesen Anforderungen körperlich nicht gewachsen sind, werden wir Sie wieder zurückgeben und dann auch dafür sorgen, daß Sie in Brot und Arbeit kommen. Ganz anders ist es jedoch, wenn Sie aus charakterlichen Gründen versagen oder gar auf den absurden Gedanken kommen sollten, uns hintergehen zu wollen. Dann allerdings treffen Sie die unerbittlich harten Gesetze des Ordens. Wem die Partei das Braunhemd auszieht, der verliert damit nicht allein Amt und Stellung, sondern er ist auch persönlich vernichtet. Das sind die harten Gesetze des Ordens. Das müssen Sie wissen und das muss ich Ihnen heute mit aller Rücksichtslosigkeit sagen. Wenn Sie heute "Ja" sagen, sind Sie uns verfallen. Wenn Sie sich bewähren, werden Sie mit dem, was wir mit Ihnen vorhaben, zufrieden sein. Unsere drei Ordensburg Vogelsang, Crössinsee und Sonthofen sind von uns völlig neu gebaut und nicht etwa alte renovierte Ritterburgen. U n s e r eW e l t a n s c h a u u n gk a n nm a nn i c h ti na l t e mG e m ä u e rp r e d i g e n ,u n s e r eW e l t a n s c h a u u n gg e d e i h tn i c h ti mR e i c hd e rF l e d e r m ä u s e ,s i ev e r l a n g td a ss t r a h l e n d eL i c h te i n e rs c h ö n e nW e l t. Auf unseren Ordensburgen wird Ihnen jeder neue Tag zum neuen Geschenk werden, umso mehr, als Sie durch den von mir vorgesehenen Aufenthaltswechsel Gelegenheit finden sollen, jede der drei Burgen und damit auch drei völlig verschiedene deutsche Landschaft mit ihren Menschen kennen zu lernen. Wir beginnen jetzt mit der Ausmusterung. Sie vollzieht sich nach den Ihnen dargelegten Grundsätzen. Diese Grundsätze sind klar und einfach. Wir brauchen keine Schädelmessungen und ähnliche Dinge. Wir schauen Ihnen in Ihre Augen, richten einige Fragen an Sie, wir werden Ihr Gesamtverhalten mustern. Das mag sehr einfach und sehr leicht aussehen, aber die Amtsleiter, die ich bitte, an dieser Musterung als Beobachter teilzunehmen, werden die Härte und die Strenge des Musterungsaktes richtig zu erkennen vermögen" / "Wer versagt oder wer gar die Partei und ihren Führer verrät, wer der Gemeinheit in sich selber nicht Herr zu werden vermag, den wird dieser Orden vernichten. Wem die Partei das Braunhemd auszieht - das muss jeder von uns wissen und erkennen - , dem wird dadurch nicht nur ein Amt genommen, sondern der wird auch persönlich mit seiner Familie, seiner Frau und seinen Kindern, vernichtet sein. Das sind die harten und unerbittlichen Gesetze eines Ordens. Auf der einen Seite dürfen die Menschen in den Himmel greifen und sich alles holen, was ein Mann nur wünschen kann. Auf der anderen Seite ist der tiefe Abgrund der Vernichtung. Jeder nationalsozialistische Führer muss wissen - das will ich auf diesen Ordensburgen als ein unermüdliches und immer wiederkehrendes Gewissen den Männern einhämmern -, er wandelt auf einem steilen Grad. Es lässt sich hier nur wandeln, wenn eine nachtwandlerische Sicherheit vorhanden ist. Diese nachtwandlerische Sicherheit erhalten die Menschen erst, wenn sie beseelt sind von einem unbändigen Glauben und von einer unerschütterlichen Treue zu A d o l fH i t l e r und seiner Idee." - Erstausgabe in ganz guter Erhaltung (abweichend von den Fotos: Einband mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren und etwas fleckig, erste und letzte Seite etwas stockfleckig, sonst sehr gut) weitere Fotoabbildungen siehe Nr. 19596 !
