Ernest Hemingway
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1940. Detailed description of. For Whom the Bell Tolls HEMINGWAY, ERNEST Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons Location: New York, NY Date: 1940 Binding: Octavo, original full bound beige cloth, original dust jacket Pages: 471 Original Price: $2.75 Edition: First Edition Printing: First Printing Description: First Edition, First Printing of Ernest Hemingway's classic novel in its very rare and exceptionally delicate First -Issue Dust Jacket. "This is the best book Ernest Hemingway has written, the fullest, the deepest, the truest. It will, I think, be one of the major novels of American literature... Hemingway has struck universal chords, and he has struck them vibrantly" -J. Donald Adams, The New York Times, 1940. The first edition of For Whom the Bell Tolls was one of Hemingway's more successful books. Though the first printing run is estimated at approximately 100,000 copies, it can now only be distinguished from later printings with the presence of the original dust jacket lacking the photographer's credit on the rear panel. Like most titles of the time, the jacket was fragile, and far fewer survived. With more and more jackets being lost or damaged, the scarcity of this first printing continues to increase. Condition: Fine Book in Near Fine Dust Jacket. Book has tight square binding. Pages clean, bright, and unmarked. Beautifully preserved original tan full cloth boards. Vibrant stamped red and black lettering on spine with very minor spotting. A crisp, clean, exceptional example. Dust jacket presenting very well.

Robinson, Jackie
1940. Rare black and white photograph signed by the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era, Jackie Robinson. Inscribed by the baseball legend in the bottom left corner of the photograph, "To John, best wishes, Jackie Robinson." In near fine condition. The photograph measures 7 inches by 8.25 inches. Double matted and framed. Photographs signed by Robinson are scarce. "Probably no other athlete has had a greater sociological impact on American sport than did Robinson. His success on the baseball field opened the door to black baseball players and thereby transformed the game. He also helped to facilitate the acceptance of black athletes in other professional sports, particularly basketball and football. His influence spread beyond the realm of sport, as he emerged in the late 1940s and 1950s as an important national symbol of the virtue of racial integration in all aspects of American life" (ANB).

Lindsay, Howard and Russel Crouse
Alfred A. Knopf, 1940. First Edition. Humorously INSCRIBED to author Horace McCoy on the front endpaper by Russell Crouse: "For Horace McCoy / They shoot authors, don't they? / Russel Crouse." An interesting Hollywood association between two screenwriters whose work outside cinema (McCoy a novelist and Crouse a playwright) was even more significant than their work for the silver screen. Though undated, the inscription here is almost certainly from the year of publication, the final year that McCoy and Crouse worked as screenwriters for Paramount. "Life with Father," Lindsay and Crouse's adaptation of Clarence Day's popular "New Yorker" stories about upper class life in turn-of-the-century New York, became the longest running non-musical play on Broadway, a record it still holds today. It, in turn, was the basis for the hit 1947 film, directed by Michael Curtiz and starring an Academy award nominated William Powell, Irene Dunne, and Elizabeth Taylor. About Near Fine in a Very Good plus, price-clipped copy of the dust jacket. Faint spotting to the boards, light bump to the upper front tip. Jacket has minor nicking to the extremities, two short closed tears to the front panel, and a corresponding bump to the upper tip. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

SMITH, Jennie L.
[Newark?]: Laboratory in Elementary School Problems, University of Delaware, 1940. Softcover. Very Good. First edition. Quarto. Paginated in two parts separately: 62, [1] (lacks one leaf p.49-50, which appears never to have been bound in); 62pp. Quarter canvas and printed blue wrappers. Mimeographed pages. Undated, but the brief bibliography mentions several books from the 1930s, with the latest being published in 1939. Grammar school stamp inside front cover, tiny "x" on front wrap, faint spotting on wrappers, a sound and very good or better copy. The contents page indicates there should be four illustrations, but none are present and there is no indication that they were ever produced or included - presumably the mention of them on the contents page was more aspirational than factual. A history of the early days of a Southern New Jersey county, concentrating on the Native Americans in the first part, and on the early Swedish settlers in the second part. Apparently a project for a degree in education, and a very DIY production, which likely accounts for the missing portions. *OCLC* locates no copies.[Attributes: First Edition]

McCullers, Carson
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1940. First edition, early printing of the author's first novel and masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Mary, Aristide, Mikey, Aimee, Poppins, With all the love you want from me. Carson." Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp example, uncommon signed and inscribed. With the publication of her first novel, The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, Carson McCullers, became a literary sensation. With its profound sense of moral isolation and its compassionate glimpses into its characters' inner lives, the novel is considered McCullers' finest work, an enduring masterpiece. "To me the most impressive aspect of The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter is the astonishing humanity that enables a white writer, for the first time in Southern fiction, to handle Negro characters with as much ease and justice of those of her own race. This cannot be accounted for stylistically or politically; it seems to stem from an attitude toward life." (Richard Wright) "A remarkable book . . . [McCullers] writes with a sweep and certainty that are overwhelming" (The New York Times). Chosen by Modern Library as one of 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century.

Graham is considered the first proponent of Value Investing, an investment approach he began teaching at Columbia Business School in 1928 and subsequently refined with David Dodd through various editions of their famous book Security Analysis. Well known disciples of Graham include Jean-Marie Eveillard, Warren Buffett, William J. Ruane, Irving Kahn and Walter J. Schloss. Buffett, who credits Graham as grounding him with a sound intellectual investment framework, described him as the second most influential person in his life after his own father. In fact, Graham had such an overwhelming influence on his students that two of them, Buffett and Kahn, named their sons, Howard Graham Buffett and Thomas Graham Kahn, after him.

It reads, "My dear Lewis: I've read "The Brown Decade" you so kindly sent me and it is a useful work in your splendid style. I didn't agree in total but admire and respect. I was sorry to see so little of you in New York- intending to see you if I saw no one else. And the stupidity of wandering around in the Lehigh Starret building while you were waiting for me at 41 west 12th street rises to plague me still. Dutchy and I saw something of Catherine Bauer in New York. The Guggenheim has asked me for a recommendation for the new work she wants to do and I my best- but wrote her what I thought of her thesis. You know what I must think about that. Enclosed is a copy of what I think about it for your files if you care for it.

[Various places in the American West, as described below below, 1940. Sixty-nine photographs, each measuring 8 x 10 inches, mounted on linen and bound in two volumes. Oblong small folios. Black pebbled vinyl, secured by brads. Moderate wear to covers, a few photos creased at edge and most starting to curl, linen backing fraying on some photos, but overall very good. A collection of striking promotional photographs created to enhance Union Pacific Railroad travel brochures. This collection is focused almost exclusively on the Western United States.

Photographs portray the Universities of Nebraska, Oregon, Wyoming, Colorado, Denver, Kansas, Idaho, and Montana; Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Kansas State Universities; and finally Stanford University, College of Idaho, Midland College (Nebraska), Doane College, and Creighton University. The last five photos are images of entrees, perhaps for dinner menus on western routes. A number of these photos are stamped "Please Credit Union Pacific Railroad Photo" on the verso. The second volume is composed exclusively of scenes from Colorado, with typed captions on the verso. There are images from Rocky Mountain National Park more broadly, including Alberta Falls, Pike's Peak Railway, and the Hidden Inn, but the majority are in and around Colorado Springs. There are shots of the Broadmoor and Antlers Hotels, downtown Colorado Springs, Seven Falls, Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Cheyenne Mountain Lodge, and Wil … [Click Below for Full Description]

(N.p, 1940. Oblong small quarto. (9)ff., illustrated on rectos only. A handmade children's counting book featuring animals in parent-child relationships. Each family group increases in number as the reader pages through the book, starting with one mother and one baby turtle and ending with a mother otter and her ten pups. Along the way, one encounters owls, bees, and salamanders, among others. The illustrations are skillfully completed in charcoal on thick paper. The pages are bound together with two metal rings between a card front cover, which bears a title label, and a board back cover. Covers show some wear and soiling, with a few closed tears at bottom edge. A delightful take on an apparently unpublished counting book, near fine.

Benjamin Graham (born Benjamin Grossbaum, May 8, 1894 - died September 21, 1976) was an influential economist and professional investor. Graham is considered the first proponent of Value Investing, an investment approach he began teaching at Columbia Business School in 1928 and subsequently refined with David Dodd through various editions of their famous book Security Analysis. Well known disciples of Graham include Jean- Marie Eveillard, Warren Buffett, William J. Ruane, Irving Kahn and Walter J. Schloss. Buffett, who credits Graham as grounding him with a sound intellectual investment framework, described him as the second most influential person in his life after his own father. In fact, Graham had such an overwhelming influence on his students that two of them, Buffett and Kahn, named their sons, Howard Graham Buffett and Thomas Graham Kahn, after him.

STEAD, Leslie (1899-1966), [STUDIO STEAD; WARDILL, Tom, and CRITCHARD, George].
no date [circa 1940s]. [Children's Adventure Artwork] ORIGINAL PAINTING (38 x 57cm). Gouache painted directly onto a Winsor & Newton Fashion-Plate Drawing Board, details printed on reverse. A little rubbed, chipped and bumped to edges, but clean and bright generally. Very good. An original painting produced by Leslie Stead, or one of the members of 'Studio Stead,' believed for a Biggles title, but apparently never published. Winsor and Newton's art supplies factory in Wealdstone, Middlesex, opened in 1937, providing a terminus post quem. The style of their advertisement on the back suggests a date between the late 1930's and the early 1950's, but otherwise there is no direct evidence to suggest a date for the painting, unless the title of the book it was intended to illustrate could be established.

1940. very good, some cloth rubbing, mostly minor at corners and edges, light pencil mark line on page 80, otherwise clean tight and very good. Very rare volume Jesse LivermoreHow to Trade in Stocks: The Livermore Formula for Combining Time Element and Price. published in 1940 1st edition Duell Sloan and Pearce, NY Publishers blue cloth, silver lettering, silver cover i illustrated with charts 133pp. Time Magazine described Jesse Livermore as the most fabulous living U.S. stock trader. His progress from office boy to Wall Street legend - his trading lessons - his triumphs and disasters - is probably the most fascinating of any of Wall Street's stories. Even today, many stock and commodity traders owe Jesse Livermore a deep debt of gratitude for sharing his experiences in this book. The techniques he made public have endured through many decades right up to today; his trading rules earned him millions of dollars, provided he stayed faithful to them. Livermore also lost his entire fortune on more than one occasion, when he ignored his own trading rules. Jesse Livermore was a self-made man trading with his own money - not other people's money, like modern investment banks and hedge funds. Depending how you measure it, his fortune peaked between 1.1 and 14.0 billion dollars in today's money. see my other rare stock market volumes too priority mail insured. [Attributes: First Edition]

Zane Grey
Revised Final script, USA. Hollywood: Twentieth Century Fox, Sept. 10, 1940 [with revisions dated up through 12/4/40]. Vintage original film script, mimeograph, 157 pp., plus 8 additional pages of retakes, brad bound, printed covers, wear to edges of yapped covers, distribution slip torn off (as usual), VERY GOOD+. WESTERN UNION was one of the first Western movies to be shot in the three-strip Technicolor process, following directly on the heels of THE RETURN OF FRANK JAMES (1940), also shot in Technicolor, for the same studio, Twentieth Century Fox, and by the same director, Fritz Lang. According to a Wikipedia article on best-selling Western author Zane Grey â€" the writer of the novel on which this movie was based â€" the success of Lang's film, released shortly after Grey's death, "helped bring about a resurgence in Hollywood Westerns." It was the fourth American film of Austrian-born director Fritz Lang (1890â€"1976), and, as noted, his second Western, and his second film in color. However, the movie's subject matter â€" America's expansion into the Western frontier by way of the telegraph wire â€" echoed the subject matter of some of Lang's best known German silent films. Like Lang's SIEGFRIED and KRIEMHILD'S REVENGE (1924), it was a meditation on national myth. Like his WOMAN IN THE MOON (1929), it celebrated the exploration of new frontiers. For Twentieth Century Fox and producer Daryl Zanuck, WESTERN UNION was not only a follow-up to Lang's successful THE RETURN OF FRANK JAMES, but also a kind of companion piece to the studio's BRIGHAM YOUNG (Henry Hathaway, 1940). … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prag, Jüdischen Kultusgemeinde In Prag, 1940. 1st edition. Folio. Newspaper. Illustrated throughout. Includes many advertisements and numerous personal family announcements. Following the Kristallnacht pogroms of November 1938, Jewish life in Germany and Czechoslovakia was even further curtailed and all remaining Jewish newspapers were shut down by the government. In their place, the Nazi Party ordered the creation of a single, new Jewish newspaper, "Das Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt, " that would be directly under Gestapo control. It was published concurrently in Berlin, Vienna and Prague and was occupied to a large extent with announcing the ever-increasing number of anti-Semitic discriminations, orders and exclusions imposed by the Reich government. Over the course of its history, the editors of the Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt were Leo Kreindler (1938-42) and Willi Pless (1942-43) . The Berlin edition ran from the 23rd November, 1938 until the final issue of 4th June 1943. The Prague edition continued until 1945. In a ghoulish twist of Nazi irony, Gentiles were forbidden from reading the Jüdische Nachrichtenblatt yet the newspaper's targeted readership, the Jews, were literally hounded to their deaths by the very authorities who presided over the newspaper's ownership! See Reiner Burger, Von Goebbels Gnaden: "Jüdisches Nachrichtenblatt" 1938-1943 (2001) . A mixed collection of 102 issues from Berlin and Prague sold at auction in 2015 for 9225.00 USD.
