        Fine unsigned portrait photo (The Queen Mother, 1900-2002, Queen of George VI)]

      1940 - showing the Queen Mother seated on a sofa, wearing a bejewelled gown with orders and tiara, surrounded by her attendants also in evening dress, in original blue leather presentation frame by Jarrolds, 8" x 10" in frame, 10" x 12", Buckingham Palace, no date but circa She is wearing the same outfit that she wore when she was photographed by Cecil Beaton whose famous photographs of Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace in 1939 established a new romantic image for the monarchy. He subsequently photographed her five times between 1947 and 1957 and deliberately tried to re-create the spirit of the 1939 image - the be-spangled crinoline dress with lots of diamond jewellery.

        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. These posters reputedly at one time formed part of an exhibition on the occupation in Lille, the needfully anonymous original "curator" was surely deserving of such a memorial. The collection comprises: 1) La relève continue! (5768 × 404 mm) - indistinct "Lundi 28-9-40 (20h 40) Tourcoing". 2) Avis, Brussels 10-11-9141 (626 × 925 mm) - "Vendredi 21-11-41 (20h 30) ... rue de la France, Roubaix". 3) Avis, Lille le 26 Septembre 1941 (663 × 1035 mm) - annotated on the left-hand side "Jeudi 6-11-41 (20h) - ?La Viquette - Luiselles"; right-hand side, "Dimanche 25-9-41 6h 40 - ? rue de Tourcoing". 4) Avis - Lille le 18 Septembre 1941 (456 × 631 mm) - annotated "Mercredi 12-11-41 20h 50 Maison Vanesse Le Bellem, Luiselles" 5) "Je travaille en Allemagne" [ O.R.A.F.F. (Office de Répartition de l'Affichage) VII - 230] (555 × 373 mm) - annotated "Mardi 29 -12-42 Tourcoing" 6) Avis, Lille 1 April 1942.

(près rue de Clinquet Tourcoing)". 8) [Untitled Eastern Front Map] 1942 (530 a 450 mm). 9) Avis, Lille 12 Janvier 1943 (590 × 810 mm) - annotated on the left-hand side; "Lundi 18-1-43 (19h 00) ...

        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.

        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]

        Pat the Bunny

      NY: Simon & Schuster, 1940 12mo, (4 1/8" wide x 5 3/8), pictorial boards, Very good in publisher's box (worn). A now classic book, illustrated in color. Every other page offers a different activity for the youngest child to enjoy and TOUCH (7 in all). It was partly an experiment in using interactive elements in a book, which was unusual at the time. This is the very rare first issue of this iconic title, with a ball that was designed to squeak when the child pressed it. Because it malfunctioned most of the time, it was replaced with a box of real buttons. The mirror in the first issue was also later replaced with scented flowers. This is one of the rarest of all modern picture books, especially in the first issue with the original ball and mirror pages and in the original box. (Actual mirror not present.) See Bader p.238- 9. Housed in a custom-made slipcase. $20,000.

        [Four Quartets, comprising] East Coker; Burnt Norton; The Dry Salvages; Little Gidding

      London Faber & Faber [through 1942] 1940 Four uniform first impressions of the separate appearances in pamphlet form of Eliot's wartime masterpiece. East Coker: 16pp; yellow paper wrappers printed in black (Near Fine, barring the usual toning) over white card covers, stapled. Light foxing throughout, the final 8pp uncut [Gallup A36c]. Burnt Norton: 16pp; aquamarine paper wrappers printed in black folded over stiff white covers; stapled. Fine, with just a hint of fading along the spine crease. [Gallup [A37]. The Dry Salvages: 16pp; pale blue paper wrappers printed in black folded over stiff cream (Gallup's first state) paper without the Adelphi watermark. Very Good or better, the wraps faded and lightly foxed, with a stain on the inner flap fold, but the pages bright and unmarked, except for an owner's inscription in a neat hand on the half-title [Gallup A39]. Little Gidding: 16pp; stiff mauve wrappers printed in black, stapled (Gallup's second state). Near Fine or better with traces of foxing to the back panel, internally bright and fresh [Gallup A42]. First Faber printing of the first title (East Coker first appeared in two forms associated with its publication in The New English Weekly.), first separate edition of the second title (first published in Collected Poems, 1936), and first editions of the latter two titles. East Coker is the village in Somerset from which Eliot's ancestors departed for the New World in 1669; Burnt Norton refers to the Gloucestershire manor house erected on the foundation of a house that burned to the ground in 17th century; The Dry Salvages is a group of rocks off Cape Ann, and so harks to the poet's New England roots, and Little Gidding was the manor in Huntingdonshire that was the destination of poets' pilgrimages as the site where Nicholas Ferrar founded an Anglican religious community in the mid-17th century.

        Shell Shock in France 1914-18. Based on a War Diary.

      8vo., original cloth. A near fine copy. First edition, inscribed by Myers "To Sir Wilson Jameson in warm regard, C.S.M". Wilson was Chief Medical Officer to the Ministry of Health and one of the architects of the National Health Service. From 1915 to 1919 Jameson was in the Royal Army Medical Corps, working mainly on hygiene and laboratory services, and serving in France and Italy. In 1915 Myers was given a commission in the Royal Army Medical Corps and in 1916 he was appointed consultant psychologist to the British armies in France. Frustrated with opposition to his view that shell-shock (a term he coined in an article in The Lancet) was a treatable condition, after the war he returned to his Cambridge position. But here too he was deeply dissatisfied, wanting wider opportunities for the development of his more practical interests, and feeling that official and academic circles showed little genuine interest in psychology. In 1922 he left Cambridge for London, thereafter devoting himself to the development of the National Institute of Industrial Psychology which he had founded with Henry John Welch in 1921. He was also involved in what became the industrial health research board and was the first president of the British Psychological Society.

        In the Money: White Mule - Part II

      Norfolk, CT: New Directions, 1940 First edition, first printing. Presentation copy; inscribed by Williams to Norman Mcleod: "To / Norman Mcleod / - with expectations / of the best for the new / novel - / William Carlos Williams / Oct 29/40". Publisher's indigo cloth, lettered in silver. Very good, with some light sunning and a slight lean to the spine, a touch of fraying to the spine ends, small spot to the rear board, light offsetting to the endpapers, otherwise clean interior. A very sturdy copy, signed by the author. Williams inscribed this copy of In the Money to his long-time friend and fellow poet Norman Macleod. In this inscription, Williams references Macleod's second novel, The Bitter Roots, which was published in 1941. The two men maintained a long-term correspondence, and Williams edited several of Macleod's collections of poetry. A fan of the younger poet's verse, Williams professed his admiration poetically with "A Poem for Norman Macleod." In addition to writing his own poetry and prose, Macleod founded the Briarcliff Quarterly magazine and was the first director for the Poetry Center at the 92nd Street Y. In the Money is the second volume in Williams' trilogy featuring the Stecher family. Inspired by his wife's family history and his experiences working in pediatrics, Williams uses this trilogy to examine the life of a European immigrant family in New York, and specifically focuses on Flossie, the Stecher's young daughter whose birth begins the trilogy. In the Money follows Flossie's father Joe Stecher as he establishes a printing company and moves to the suburbs of New Jersey as an endeavor to cultivate a more middle-class life for his family. This novel is preceded by White Mule (1937) and followed by The Build-Up (1952).. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.
