CHODOWIECKI, Daniel, Alexander Demetrius Goltz, Karl von Binzer, Johann Nepomuk Höchle, Erich Hermès, Karl Alexander Wilke, and Others
[Austria, 1940. Oblong octavo (7" x 4.25"). A German autograph album containing over 80 elements (laid-down or tipped-in), including many original watercolors, gouache paintings, pen and ink drawings, pencil drawings, autographs and inscriptions, a few prints and photographs, etc., spanning the years from the 1830s to the early 20th Century. Bound in mid-18th Century gilt-decorated leather (with the initials "E.S." stamped in gold on the back board), original binding laid onto cloth boards, red paste paper endleaves, edges stained red. The leather is rubbed, front hinge is loose, a few detached leaves, very good. A remarkable album of original drawings and autographs, most likely kept by a German-speaking artist and illustrator with close ties to the theater. Included is a pencil drawing of Gutle Schnapper Rothschild (and what appears to be a portrait of her husband Karl Mayer), which would link the album to the Rothschild family of bankers in Austria. The album consists of mostly drawings, either tipped-in or mounted on the laid paper leaves. Among the many notable pictures are: two oval ink drawings (double-portraits of two young women and two girls), and one pencil drawing of Frederic the Great, all identified by the album's owner as works by the painter and printmaker Daniel Chodowiecki; a watercolor and charcoal portrait of an actor by Karl Alexander Wilke; two watercolor drawings of troopers in costume by Johann Nepomuk Höchle, and two fine gouache and watercolor portraits of the actor Christian Rub by an unknown artist. Also included is an ink drawing of the escape t … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERRAND-WEYHER, Yvonne
[Années 1940]. 8 volumes in-16, en feuilles, couvertures ornées de dessins à l’encre de Chine de l’auteur. Charmante collection de cahiers manuscrits décorés par l'auteur renfermant des poésies inédites. La poétesse Yvonne Ferrand-Weyher (1873-1963) publia ses premiers recueils pendant l’entre-deux-guerres. Elle se fit connaître avec ses Huit poèmes en forme de Chant Royal (1931), salués et admirés par Paul Valéry qui rédigea l’avertissement de son recueil suivant Fontaines de Mémoire (1935). Ses poésies rigoureusement construites et structurées lui valurent les éloges des milieux de la « poésie officielle » de son temps, qui se réjouissait de ces productions classiques bien éloignées des poésies surréalistes qui connaissaient alors un certain succès. Ces recueils intitulés Automne; Hiver; Printemps; Eté; La mer ensoleillée; La Nuit; Versailleset A la Porte de Marbre et Construction. Poèmes composés durant l’occupation, sont chacun constitués d’une vingtaine de pages, et contiennent 72 poèmes dont la plupart sont inédits. Une lettre autographe signée de l’auteur nous indique qu’ils ont été offerts par elle à une amie souffrante en 1949. Jeanine Moulin. La Poésie féminine. Epoque moderne.

Lindbergh, Charles) Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, 1940. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed in full by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on the half-title page. Stated first edition, first printing, with no mention of a later printing on the copyright page. This small book is basically a statement of the case against involvement in the unfolding war in Europe, widely considered an isolationist tract. What is important about this copy is that it is also inscribed by Charles Lindbergh on the front fly as follows: "For Senator Pat McCarran/ from Charles A. Lindbergh/ October, 1940" the "1940" being slightly smudged, though readable. Charles Lindbergh had, a month earlier - in September 1940 - become the most prominent chairman of the America First Committee. Although he later completely supported the U.S. in World War II after Pearl Harbor, he has been remembered as perhaps the most prominent isolationist American (among several others one should look up). This book with its inscription to a prominent U.S. senator marks that important phase of the great pilot's political life. Unusual signed by Anne, it is highly uncommon signed by both husband and wife. Small format hardcover. Fine copy in a near-fine, price clipped dj with a tiny chip at fold, an almost invisible tiny stain front cover, and a small scuff to the rear panel. An excellent bright copy.

L'indépendance d'esprit que manifestent ses ouvrages - un antimilitarisme virulent dans Clavel soldat, paru en 1919, ou un anticolonialisme peu à la mode en 1926, quand sort Cochinchine − suscite toujours de vives polémiques.

In a bright and lovely example of the scarce dust jacket which has received minor restoration to the foot of the spine.

holland, Loren Robert and Beverly
[No place], 1940. Oblong folio measuring 14 "x 11". Black boards with gilt decorations. Contains 57 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2" x 1" and 5" x 4" with captions and some negatives. Edgewear, a small indent on the front board, and bumped corners, thus very good album with near fine photographs. A young couple's photo album featuring photographs of their wedding and life together. Beverly Keister and Loren Robert Holland were married in the 1940s during a Twelfth Night Ceremony, which is celebrated on the 5th of January 12 days after Christmas. Pictures of the event are in the first part of the album showing Keister receiving gifts and spending times with friend and family. Holland flew jets for the United States Air Force in World War II and many photographs show the air crafts as well as pictures of the landscape from within the cockpit. One picture shows the full interior of the jet that Holland was piloting as well as shots of other planes flying next to Holland's. There are also pictures of Holland while he was at the aviation base playing on both the boxing and basketball team. A few of the photographs show young children, presumably the couple's children greeting Holland, who is wearing a Groucho Marks mask. Another funny photo shows Holland holding and caring for his peculiar pets, a raccoon and a monkey. An interesting photo album of a young couple marrying before the husband went off to fight in World War II. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First Edition. -- Condition: Very good, small patch of rubbing to front board, minor wear to corners and spine ends, sunning to spine, internally fine, in near fine dust jacket with small accordion tear to spine with corresponding neat repair to verso. -- Details: A clean and wonderfully bright, thus rare, jacketed first edition of this thrilling tale of international intrigue, beginning in Istanbul at the outbreak of World War II. 'Returning to his hotel room after a late-night flirtation with a cabaret dancer at an Istanbul bo"te, Graham is surprised by an intruder with a gun. What follows is a nightmare of intrigue for the English armaments engineer as he makes his way home aboard an Italian freighter. Among the passengers are a couple of Nazi assassins intent on preventing his returning to England with plans for a Turkish defence system, the seductive cabaret dancer and her manager husband, and a number of surprising allies.' [from a later edition] Eric Ambler (1909-98) is considered by many to be the creator of the 'suspense' genre as we know it today, as author of some of 'the most accomplished and innovative modern thrillers'. He was one of the first authors to employ the literary devices of flashbacks and multiple narrators, and wrote over fifteen novels in his lifetime, of which The Mask of Dimitrios was most successful, bringing him to world-wide fame at the age of thirty. Later in his life he turned his attentions to screenwriting, and became the head writer for films such as Encore (1951), The Clouded Yellow (1951) and … [Click Below for Full Description]

The classic focuses on four anthropomorphized animals Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger in a pastoral version of Edwardian England. The classic is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie, and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the Thames Valley. In 1908, Grahame retired from his position as secretary of the Bank of England. He moved back to Berkshire, where he had lived as a child, and spent his time by the River Thames, doing much as the animal characters in his book do - to quote, "simply messing about in boats" - and expanding the bedtime stories he had earlier told his son Alastair into a manuscript for the book.

SHERWOOD, Robert E.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1940. Early reprint. Fine, in supplied, near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper. Full-page Inscription by the author to the subject of this Pulitzer Prize-winning play: "for Katherine Imbrie, who, starting with birth in New Bedford, Mass., has seen and suffered much the same kind of tragedy that comes to Miranda Valhoven in this play - with all hope for a better world - Robert Sherwood. January 1, 1941." Laid in is a letter from Katherine Imbrie to Benjamin Fairless, President of U.S. Steel, objecting to the broadcasting of the play on the U.S. Steel radio program in 1950 because of pending legal proceedings concerning "The Imbrie Incident." Attached is a typed memo from Mrs. Imbrie to William J. Walsh, Jr. concerning the proposed radio production of the play. The Imbrie Incident occurred on July 18, 1924, in Tehran, Iran. Then American Vice Consul, Robert Whitney Imbrie along with an acquaintance, Melvin Seymour, were attacked by a mob while visiting a public well in the center of Tehran. Though local police and soldiers were close by, they failed to render assistance and some even participated in the assault. Finally, the two Americans were taken away to a nearby police infirmary for treatment. The mob followed them and continued the attack until they finally killed Imbrie. Seymour was somehow spared. Later, the Persian government executed a lone soldier for inciting the mob against the two Americans (by claiming that Imbrie was a Baha'i, a religious minority persecuted in Iran) and awarded Imbrie's widow $60,000 for the loss of her husband … [Click Below for Full Description]
