        Babes in the Darkling Wood

      1940. First Edition . Signed. WELLS, H.G. Babes in the Darkling Wood. London: Secker & Warburg, 1940. Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. $3000.First edition of Wells’ wartime novel, inscribed by him on the title page to his close friend and scientific advisor Richard Gregory, ""To RAGs oldest friend of all. From H.G. 22-1-14.""In his introductory essay to Babes in the Darkling Wood, H.G. Wells describes this story of young people in wartime as a novel of ideas dedicated to ""the tradition of discussing fundamental human problems in dialogue form."" Currey, 416. Hammond A28. Wells, 41. Inscribed to noted British scientist and Wells' lifelong friend Sir Richard Arman Gregory. In Wells' first work of fiction, he dedicated the work to Gregory as his ""dearest friend."" The two met while students at the Normal School of Science in South Kensington. They jointly authored a textbook, Honours Physiography, in 1891. Reportedly, Gregory was the one person with whom Wells never quarreled. A professor of astronomy, Gregory also possessed expertise in physics, chemistry and other disciplines; he wrote several textbooks and eventually assumed the editorship of the journal Nature, to which Wells frequently contributed. The author often turned to Gregory, and to the experts Gregory contacted on Wells' behalf, for insight and encouragement when writing his famous ""scientific romances."" After Wells' death, Gregory worked to establish the H.G. Wells Memorial to preserve public attention to his friend's body of work. Throughout his life Gregory was a passionate advocate for science—""It is necessary to believe in the holiness of scientific work,"" he once declared—and ""an optimist about man's future"" (Horrabin, in New Scientist, April 11, 1957).Scattered light foxing; original cloth with fading to spine, faint stain to top board. Price-clipped dust jacket with chips to spine ends. An extremely good copy with notable provenance.

        [Commercial Printer's Compendium of In-house Product Labels]; Old Whiskey Labels, Samples and Index [cover title]

      1940. Folio-sized, commercial album, with pages on tabs (43 x 35 cm.), containing reference exemplars of labels collated with index numbers to printer's plates. More than twelve hundred chromolithograph and color lithography labels, of various shapes and sizes, designed for spirits bottles. The labels were produced by an unidentified color lithographer under contract with approximately one dozen mostly Midwestern distilleries. Includes also a comparatively small number of in-house samples representing other printing contracts, not only labels for nonalcoholic syrups, salad dressings, and toiletry products, but also billheads, envelopes, warehouse receipts, commercial checks, and insurance certificates for disparate clients. The samples are accompanied by a small printed "index" with handwritten notes, which appear to be a finding aid for the print plates in a storage or warehouse facility, should the labels need to be reprinted. Included principally are main, band, and shoulder labels in multiple formats (for bottles of different size by volume) for widely recognized brand names of the era, mostly produced by two large Detroit-based distilleries, Arrow Distilleries and Mohawk Liquor. Among the brands: Magnet Kuemmel, Arrow Blackberry Brandy, Arrow Karavan Rum, Arrow Rock & Rye, Julius Marcus Crème de Cacao, Red Bird Bourbon, Walsh White Label Whiskey, Chicco Corn Whisky, Hawthorne Gin, Kreamy Hed Sloe Gin, Mohawk Peppermint Schnapps, Mohawk Grenadine. Though the name of the printing house is wanting, a marked - that is not to say exclusive - geographical emphasis on Detroit is apparent; secondary emphasis on the Ohio River (Lawrenceburg, Cincinnati, Louisville) can also be discerned. The prominence of these regions has to do with the historical disposition of corporate distilleries, on the one hand, and with the interaction of trademark and federal interstate commerce laws before, during, and after Prohibition. The notable absence of reference to Chicago, despite its famed liquor trade distribution relations with Detroit, is attributable to the same historical developments. During the latter half of 1933, a host of distilleries incorporated-or reconstituted-in anticipation of federal legalization on 5 December. Chief among the distilleries represented by labels here are Arrow Distilleries Incorporated, Mohawk Liqueur Corporation, Marcraft Liquor Company, Julius Marcus Liquor Corporation, all of Detroit; United Distillers & Winers Company (of Detroit and Cincinnati); James Walsh & Company (of Cincinnati & Lawrenceburg); Rossville Alcohol Corporation (of Lawrenceburg); National Distillery, Calvert Distillery, Hill & Hill Distillery (of Louisville); Old Kennebec Distilling (of Frankfurt); Reliance Distilling (of Philadelphia); Vincent Chicco Distilling (of Charleston); Ed Phillips & Sons (of East Minneapolis). Two of the warehouse documents are dated 1936 and 1937, confirmation that at least some portion of the otherwise undated contents originated after passage of the 21st Amendment. The labels bear witness to the galvanized demand in the 1930s for spirits generally-rums, bitters, whiskies, gins, cordials, schnapps-as well as for distilled drinks with strong ethnic associations for populations of East Central- and South-European descent, e.g., Polish ubrówka, Baltic Allash, German Kuemmel, Swedish Punsch, Ukrainian Vishnevka, Croatian Pelinkovac, Balkan Slivovica, Mediterranean Anisettes. The largest client was Arrow Distilleries (incorporated 15 September 1933), and concentration in the Midwest but excluding Illinois is explained in part by interstate commerce requirements resulting from litigation over the use of the trademark "Arrow" by competing distilleries in Detroit, Baltimore, and Peoria. Companies could proceed without relinquishing the trade name only insofar as they did not compete in the same state markets (this in the context of Repeal's stipulation that the separate states could decide how alcohol markets would operate within their respective borders). Related interstate commerce accommodations may also be in evidence; Phillips Brand Ginger Schnapps, for instance, one of the Minnesota distillery's most successful cordials, appears here on labels produced for Marcraft of Detroit. The labels as objects themselves testify to yet another sort of transitional moment. Numerical codes for retained stone plates are included in the tabulations. In addition to numbers handwritten also on the album pages are several instances of the word "zinc" alongside one or more labels. The notation would seem to indicate a late-stage use of metal plates, which in most printing houses had already replaced smoothed stone in mass-production lithography by 1930. The following decade witnessed, in turn, the wholesale abandonment of the oil-and-water process, as photomechanical offset printing revolutionized mass commercial printing, eliminating the need for in-house lithograph artists altogether. The fact that the indicator "zinc" was needed means that, elsewhere, either surfaced stones of an earlier time were still in use (the most likely explanation), or newly devised offset plates had already been introduced. The album endured vicissitudes of use. For a time, care was clearly taken to stack multiple formats of a label type intended for different-sized bottles of a single product. But at some point, too, pages and labels alike were sliced, suggesting that they were no longer kept for active use. The volume itself had been repurposed. Having begun with numbered pages at what is now the end, whose original pasted contents were subsequently removed, the entire album was flipped. The new upper bears a handwritten title of uncertain origin: Whiskey Label Sample Book. It should be reiterated, nonetheless, that this is not in fact a commercial sample book, having nothing to do with prospective sales; it is rather a working in-house reference for use in the manufactory, during the years immediately following Repeal. Throughout the pages are browned and somewhat brittle, with edgewear and chipping. Some of the labels and the separate pages of labels affixed to the binder, are now loose. The labels themselves are attached with staples, tape and other adhesives, a testament to the fact that reference, and not preservation was the aim here. The very large gray binder is labeled on the front board and on the spine. Good. Despite all faults, still an impressive and focused collection, and a rare example of a working printer's warehouse index.

        Collection of six Cosway-style portraits

      1940. BINDING. Collection of six Cosway-style portraits. [possibly Bath: Bayntun-Rivière, circa 1940]. Six miniature watercolor portraits set into custom dark blue straight-grain morocco clamshell cases, blue watered silk doublures. $5800.Wonderful collection of six Cosway-style portraits of literary luminaries: Wordsworth, Whittier, Longfellow, Burns, Bacon, and Ruskin, housed in handsome matching morocco cases.Cosway bindings (named for renowned 19th-century English miniaturist Richard Cosway) were first commissioned in the early 1900s by J.H. Stonehouse, managing director of London booksellers Sotheran & Company, from the famous Rivière bindery, who employed Miss C.B. Currie to faithfully imitate Cosway’s detailed watercolor style of portraiture. These delicate miniature paintings, often on ivory, were set into the covers or doublures of richly-tooled bindings and protected by a thin pane of glass. Cosway bindings executed by other than the original collaborators (Stonehouse, Sotheran, Rivière, and Currie) are designated as “Cosway-style” bindings— still splendid productions— by such esteemed binderies as Sangorski & Sutcliffe, Morrell, Bayntun, and Bumpus. Cosway-style paintings rose in popularity in the mid-20th century. These six intricate watercolor portraits of British and American authors represent the exquisite craftsmanship of the foremost binders of that period. Fine condition.

        Exceptional collection of clandestinely accumulated proclamations and propaganda posters from the Nazi Occupation of Northern France

      Lille?Roubaix?Tourcoing conurbation: Militärverwaltung in Belgien und Nordfrankreich,, 1940-3. Various sizes between 518 × 448 mm and 680 × 1005 mm. Three of the group are illustrated propaganda posters, the rest being largely typographical proclamations. In view of the circumstances under which these pieces were gathered it is unsurprising that condition is somewhat compromised. Official proclamations, they were removed from the walls of the northern French conurbation of Lille-Roubaix-Tourcoing under threat of death. Meticulously reassembled, most often requiring the collaging of more than one example to complete, with patching and in-fill often provided by hand. All but one have been carefully annotated in pencil as to the exact time and specific location where they were obtained, in the case of the five bilingual proclamations the French and German halves of four of them were taken on separate occasions from different sites. Overall distressed, but striking. Haunting documents of oppression and resistance in Nazi-occupied northern France. Intensely evocative, the marks of making on these composite posters clearly reveal the driven process behind their creation; the riskful gathering of the fragments, their painstaking collaging, careful docketing, and vigilant concealment as important evidence in the future prosecution of the administration of occupation. The resultant fragmented, jagged typography and buckled surfaces of the pieces serve to accentuate the record of degradation narrated by their texts. Under the Nazis, the départements Nord and Pas-de-Calais were combined with Belgium as the Militärverwaltung in Belgien und Nordfrankreich [Military Administration in Belgium and Northern France], with its headquarters in Brussels, a move partly designed to weaken France by the annexation of an area with considerable industrial resources. The Military Administration's field headquarters, OFK [Oberfeldkommandantur] 670, was in Lille based at the Chamber of Commerce, headed by General Hermann Niehoff, over whose signature the majority of the proclamations were issued. The flat terrain of the region rendered the type of clandestine activities considered to typify the maquis extremely risky, a situation exacerbated by the posting of numerous Wehrmacht contingents in Lille itself. Resistance tended to take the form of civil disobedience, theft, and the occasional act of sabotage, most often against industrial targets, factories or railways. Proclamations among those present here announce the death sentence on a captured suspect - "Léon Szklarek ... ouvrier mineur" in a case of sabotage against the Compagnie des Mines d'Ostricourt; reprisals - "vignt otages ont été fusillé" - for the theft of explosives and subsequent attempts "au moyen d'explosifs" against military and civilian transport; the deportation of 50 hostages in revenge for the cutting of a "nombre cosidérable de fils téléphoniques et télégraphques" and destruction of switchboards, to be followed in two weeks by a further 50, "au cas que les coupables ne seraient pas découvert"; and the offer of a 10,000 Reichsmark reward for information leading to the capture of Henry Talboom, a baker, and Robert Lelong, a mechanic, wanted in connection with the murder of two members of the "police de sûreté allemande" - Sicherheitspolizei, or SiPo, comprised of the Gestapo, Secret State Police, and Kripo, Criminal Police - during the commission of a robbery "de l'argent et des bijoux". Of the pictorial propaganda posters, two of three relate to the La Relève (The Relief), an early scheme instituted by the Vichy government whereby an exchange was set up with one French POW being returned for each volunteer worker who went to Germany to support the Nazi war effort. In one image returning French prisoners wave from the windows of a train carriage marked "il en rèste, relevez les (Some still remain, relieve them)", while the other exhorts: "Je travaille en Allemagne: pour la Relève; pour ma famille; pour la France. Fais comme moi! (I'm working in Germany: for the release of POWs; for my family; for France. Do like me!)". The remaining image has no caption, dated 1942 it shows a schematised map of the Nazi advance against Soviet Russia, the main force represented by a Swastika roundel being accompanied by those of foreign "legions" including Latvian, Croatian, Belgian, and Spanish. Early on the Nazi régime was forced to declare the defacing of official posters to be an act of sabotage punishable by death, to remove and retain documented examples is an act of defiance of a higher order.

        The Narracong Riddle: A Judge Peck Mystery

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1940 225 pages. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's blue cloth with yellow lettering to spine and cover in original pictorial jacket. Inscribed. First edition.To most of his family, and to the residents of the Wisconsin town in which he had lived so many years, the death of cynical, blasphemous old Van Vliet Narracong was quite natural. He had led a hard life and his exit from it was nothing to arouse conjecture. But his stern old sister thought otherwise and called in Judge Peck, the juridical detective whose uncannily penetrating mind had solved other strange cases of murder. For it was soon apparent that Van Vliet had been murdered--so cleverly that only the most observant eyes could discover the method. There were plenty of people who disliked him but it was Judge Peck's job to find out who hated Van Viet enough to go to the extreme of murder. So Judge Peck probed the secrets of the curious Narracong household, sounded its devious undercurrents, and untangled the strange family relationships that concealed a stranger mystery, and his earlier exploits, will find him even more interesting to watch in his unraveling of the sinister secrets of a proud and secretive family, living in a brooding old mansion that makes a perfect background for a thrilling and mystifying yarn.Condition:Inscribed on front end paper. Previous owner's bookplate on front paste down. Jacket spine ends rubbed, some small closed edge tears else a better than very good copy in a very good to fine jacket.

        Die Hermetischen Schriften: Corpus Hermeticum. Deutsche Ausgabe mit Einleitungen und Kommentaren von Maria Magdalena

      Das Corpus Hermeticum, auch bekannt unter dem Namen Die 17 Bücher des Hermes Trismegistos, ist der Nachwelt in verschiedenen Handschriften in griechischer Sprache überliefert. Hinzu kommen weitere Einzelfragmente, sowie der lateinisch überlieferte Asclepius. Maria Magdalena Miller, Altphilologin und Privatgelehrte, hat in den Jahren 1940 bis 1944 diese Übersetzung aus den Original-Sprachen angefertigt, die damals aus zeitbedingten Gründen nicht erscheinen und erst jetzt ediert werden konnte. Eine ausführliche Einleitung in die Thematik des Corpus Hermeticum und in die Hermetik ist den Texten vorangestellt. Hiermit wird die erste hermetisch-wissenschaftlich fundierte deutsche Gesamtübersetzung des Corpus Hermeticum vorgelegt, mit Kommentaren und Einleitungen. Der Beitrag des Philologen Alexander Schmid Neues Licht auf alte Thesen liefert einen aktuellen Überblick zur Forschung zum Corpus Hermeticum.

        Lawyer Addressing the Bench with Portrait of Lincoln

      New York: Circa 1940s. - Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. 25 x 30 inches.The legal name of Jack Levitz was likely Ebbitt Abraham Levitz, born September 27, 1896 in Vilna, also known as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. There was civil unrest in Vilna in 1897 due to agitation for worker's rights by the General Jewish Workers Union, also known as the bund. It is likely that Levitz immigrated to the United States with his family around the end of the nineteenth century.Levitz became friends with William Saroyan, the author of many children's books. In 1941 Saroyan wrote a profile of Levitz for Don Freeman's Newsstand journal. He describes Levitz as "roly-poly" with a cigar in his mouth. According to Saroyan who got it from Levitz, Levitz could not recall his original first name and simply made up the name "Ebbet." Levitz was prolific and tossed off drawings and casual paintings with ease which he sold for a few dollars. According to Saroyan, "The paintings he really paints. are usually great."Ebbitt Abraham [Jack] Levitz died in December, 1964 at the age of 68. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
