        A small Second World War archive chronicling gifts exchanged by Winston Churchill and an Austrian Jewish emigree, including The World Crisis 1911-1918 inscribed by Churchill in early 1942 and correspondence from 10 Downing Street

      Thornton Butterworth, Limited, London 1937 - This Second World War archive chronicles gifts exchanged by Winston Churchill and R. F. Kallir. A jacketed British first abridged and revised edition, final printing of The World Crisis is inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To | R. F. Kallir | from | Winston S. Churchill | Feb. 1942". Accompanying the inscribed volume are two letters from Churchill’s Private Secretary to Kallir dated 20 December 1941 and 27 January 1942. Both letters retain their franked envelopes. There are also two mimeograph sheets, one a copy of Kallir’s letter to Churchill, the second apparently a transcription of the document gifted to Churchill. Provenance is the collection of Churchill’s bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Austrian Jewish emigree Rudolph Franz Kallir (1895-1987) was a steel industry executive and noted collector of musical manuscripts and autographs who consulted on acquisitions to institutions including the Library of Congress, New York’s Pierpont Morgan Library, and Harvard University’s library. R. F. Kallir was father to pianist Lilian Kallir Frank (1931-2004) and younger brother to Otto Kallir (1894-1978), the prominent art dealer credited with introducing the works of Klimt and Schiele to the U.S., as well as pioneering the restitution of Nazi-looted art to Holocaust victims. Both Kallir brothers, born with the surname Nirenstein, fled Hitler’s Reich. Kallir sent a gift to Churchill on 19 December 1941, twelve days after Pearl Harbor, while Churchill was secretly en route to the U.S. The next day, Churchill’s Private Secretary Katherine Hill wrote to acknowledge the gift, which she said "will be handed to him as soon as possible." On 27 January, less than ten days after Churchill returned to Britain, Hill again wrote to Kallir to thank him for his gift, concluding: "Mr. Churchill sends for your acceptance a copy of his book "The World Crisis", which he has inscribed for you." Kallir’s 19 December letter to Churchill does not specify the nature of the gift, but provides context: "When I heard your speech several months ago you quoted the verses of Clough and when I saw at Sotheby’s a few weeks later the original manuscript of this poem, which finally came into your hands, I wondered whether it would be presumptuous of me to ask you to accept from my collection a document which I feel might be of interest to you so I ask you to accept the enclosed as a token of grateful admiration from a Viennese who found refuge in your country." A second mimeograph transcribes (in French) a message from Napoleon Bonaparte in his capacity as "Le Premier Consul" to the Minister of War inquiring about the status and disposition of bread rations. This was presumably the document Kallir gifted to Churchill. Fold creases indicate that the mimeographs previously resided in the third envelope, franked 1942 and addressed to "Dr. Kallir" in Kensington. There were three printings of this British first abridged edition of The World Crisis – 1931, 1932, and 1937 – all with the same dust jacket design, the 1932 and 1937 printings typically on heavier, lined paper with paler green hue than first printing jackets. A vividly bright green cloth binding variant is unique to the third printing. This inscribed third printing features a near fine plus variant binding in a near fine plus dust jacket. The jacket suffers only fractional chipping to the upper rear hinge, light wrinkling and a few short closed tears to extremities, and a little soiling to the rear face. Notably, the entire jacket retains uniform pale green hue, even on the jacket spine. The binding is square and tight with strikingly bright color, trivial wear to extremities, and a hint of cloth blistering to the upper boards. The contents and page edges are exceptionally clean with no spotting or previous ownership marks apart from the author’s inscription. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.6.c, Woods/ICS A31(bb.3), Langworth p.113 First abridged and revised edition, third printing. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Great Contemporaries

      Thornton Butterworth Ltd, London 1937 - RARE ADVANCE PROOF COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION. One of Churchill's most enduring works, Great Contemporaries contains Churchill's candid and insightful portraits of some of the most influential and intriguing individuals of his time. Includes essays on Shaw, Chamberlain, Balfour, Clememceau, T.E. Lawrence, Hitler, and others. Illustrated with full-page photographic portraits of each subject. Excerpts: On T.E. Lawrence: "Lawrence was one of those beings whose pace of life was faster and more intense than the ordinary. Just as an aeroplane only flies by its speed and pressure against the air, so he flew best and easiest in the hurricane. He was not in complete harmony with the normal." On George Bernard Shaw: "Few people practise what they preach, and no one less so than Mr. Bernard Shaw. The world has long watched with tolerance and amusement the nimble antics and gyrations of this unique and double-headed chameleon, while all the time the creature was eager to be taken seriously." On Hindenburg: "We may be sure that the renowned veteran had not motive but love of country, and that he did his best with declining mental strength to cope with problems never before presented to a ruler." London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1937. Octavo, original wrappers; custom silk box. Some soiling to wrappers (particularly to spine); small blemish on rear wrapper. An excellent copy of the rare proof. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A small Second World War archive chronicling gifts exchanged by Winston Churchill and an Austrian Jewish emigree, including The World Crisis 1911-1918 inscribed by Churchill in early 1942 and correspondence from 10 Downing Street

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Limited, 1937. First abridged and revised edition, third printing. Hardcover. This Second World War archive chronicles gifts exchanged by Winston Churchill and R. F. Kallir. A jacketed British first abridged and revised edition, final printing of The World Crisis is inscribed on the front free endpaper: ?To | R. F. Kallir | from | Winston S. Churchill | Feb. 1942?. Accompanying the inscribed volume are two letters from Churchill?s Private Secretary to Kallir dated 20 December 1941 and 27 January 1942. Both letters retain their franked envelopes. There are also two mimeograph sheets, one a copy of Kallir?s letter to Churchill, the second apparently a transcription of the document gifted to Churchill. Provenance is the collection of Churchill?s bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Austrian Jewish emigree Rudolph Franz Kallir (1895-1987) was a steel industry executive and noted collector of musical manuscripts and autographs who consulted on acquisitions to institutions including the Library of Congress, New York?s Pierpont Morgan Library, and Harvard University?s library. R. F. Kallir was father to pianist Lilian Kallir Frank (1931-2004) and younger brother to Otto Kallir (1894-1978), the prominent art dealer credited with introducing the works of Klimt and Schiele to the U.S., as well as pioneering the restitution of Nazi-looted art to Holocaust victims. Both Kallir brothers, born with the surname Nirenstein, fled Hitler?s Reich. Kallir sent a gift to Churchill on 19 December 1941, twelve days after Pearl Harbor, while Churchill was secretly en route to the U.S. The next day, Churchill?s Private Secretary Katherine Hill wrote to acknowledge the gift, which she said ?will be handed to him as soon as possible.? On 27 January, less than ten days after Churchill returned to Britain, Hill again wrote to Kallir to thank him for his gift, concluding: ?Mr. Churchill sends for your acceptance a copy of his book ?The World Crisis?, which he has inscribed for you.? Kallir?s 19 December letter to Churchill does not specify the nature of the gift, but provides context: ?When I heard your speech several months ago? you quoted the verses of Clough and when I saw at Sotheby?s a few weeks later the original manuscript of this poem, which finally came into your hands, I wondered whether it would be presumptuous of me to ask you to accept from my collection a document which I feel might be of interest to you? so I ask you to accept the enclosed as a token of grateful admiration from a Viennese who found refuge in your country.? A second mimeograph transcribes (in French) a message from Napoleon Bonaparte in his capacity as ?Le Premier Consul? to the Minister of War inquiring about the status and disposition of bread rations. This was presumably the document Kallir gifted to Churchill. Fold creases indicate that the mimeographs previously resided in the third envelope, franked 1942 and addressed to ?Dr. Kallir? in Kensington. There were three printings of this British first abridged edition of The World Crisis ? 1931, 1932, and 1937 ? all with the same dust jacket design, the 1932 and 1937 printings typically on heavier, lined paper with paler green hue than first printing jackets. A vividly bright green cloth binding variant is unique to the third printing. This inscribed third printing features a near fine plus variant binding in a near fine plus dust jacket. The jacket suffers only fractional chipping to the upper rear hinge, light wrinkling and a few short closed tears to extremities, and a little soiling to the rear face. Notably, the entire jacket retains uniform pale green hue, even on the jacket spine. The binding is square and tight with strikingly bright color, trivial wear to extremities, and a hint of cloth blistering to the upper boards. The contents and page edges are exceptionally clean with no spotting or previous ownership marks apart from the author?s inscription.

         AIR FRANCE. Réseau Aérien Mondial.

      Paris, Perceval, 1937. Lithographie en couleurs de 600 x 975 mm. Superbe affiche publicitaire réalisée pour la compagnie aérienne Air France, dessinée par Lucien Boucher et publiée à Paris par Perceval en 1937. C'est l'un des tous premiers planisphères Air France (le premier date de 1934), sur lequel on peut voir les premières lignes aériennes de la compagnie, fondée en 1933. La ligne Paris-New York, encore à l'étude en 1937, est ici représentée en pointillés. Elle sera officiellement ouverte en 1946. A cette époque, seul le paquebot le Normandie rallie Paris à la ville de New York. Les pays et continents sont superbement décorés de monuments et personnages en costumes traditionnels, jusqu'aux aborigènes d'Australie et aux Inuits du Groenland. Les océans sont décorés de bateaux, de Neptunes, d'une rose des vents et de deux hydravions traversant l'Atlantique. L'Asie est ornée d'une grande rose des vents entourée du célèbre logo Air France figurant un cheval ailé avec une queue de dragon. Le titre est inscrit sur une banderole flottante. Dans les bordures figurent les quatre vents et points cardinaux symbolisés par des têtes d'anges aux joues gonflées. Dessinateur, graveur, affichiste et illustrateur français, Lucien Boucher (1889-1971) est surtout connu pour sa longue collaboration avec la compagnie Air France, pour laquelle il a réalisé une série d'affiches publicitaires et de planisphères en couleurs destinés à décorer les bureaux de vente de la société. Petite déchirure dans la marge supérieure affectant très légèrement l'encadrement de la carte. Bel exemplaire en pleins coloris de l'époque, non entoilé.
