        King Cole Trio Bow Tie Display with Six Bow Ties!

      1940. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Extremely rare 1940's display piece holding six differently colored and patterned clip-on bow ties as worn by "Royal Rockin' Rhythm Stars," The King Cole Trio. With a glossy photo of the group, featuring Nat King Cole, Oscar Moore and Wesley Prince. The photo, showing the musicians in their bow ties with the caption "Slidewell Bows Worn By King Cole Trio" was part of the display, and has been mounted on cardboard with an easel back. It can be attached at the top of the rack or placed in the lower section for a fantastic presentation of this special piece.Corner tip wear and some scattered dust soiling to the photograph, overall in very good to fine condition, 7.75 x 10". Wire rack  with allover light oxidation, in very good condition, 7 x 8 x 22.5". Ties have aged evenly and are in fine condition, each 5" wide.Dating from ca. 1944 when the "Royal Rockin'" phrase was first used in the press for the Trio's tour with Benny Carter and His Orchestra, this is a rare celebrity endorsement by an African American at this time, and most probably the first endorsement undertaken by Nat King Cole.  At this early date, the "celebrity game was in its infancy and there were few opportunities" for black entertainers and athletes "to cash in on their hard-won fame.  Razor, beer, and cigarette ads featuring white sports stars in various guises weren't uncommon in the mainstream media; but black athletes, like black Americans in general, just didn't show up on Madison Avenue's radar.  Even one of America's favorite pop singers, Nat King Cole, had an otherwise stellar variety show cancelled because of the lack of a national sponsor. In his day, Cole was as successful at vocalizing as Frank Sinatra, but the value of his name on anything but a record label wasn't even considered." (Kenneth Shropshire, "Being Sugar Ray," p. 10)

        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.

        Early World War Two Army and Marine Corps shoulder patch collection.

      circa 1940-1942. 189 Army and Marine Corps shoulder patches mounted on 13? x 15? scrapbook pages. The patches are all in nice shape; a couple have a little light soiling. They are affixed to the album with what appears to be white school-type paste and should be easy to remove if desired. Almost all of the patches are identified by captions on the album pages, and the few that aren?t are readily found on-line and in reference books. All of the pages show edge-wear and have pulled loose from the study scrapbook binder, but could be easily reinforced with hole-reinforcement-stickers (available at any office supply store) and reinserted. The patches include all of the major units that were active by mid-1942 except for the armored divisions. The patches are grouped by unit type: * 3 Autonomous Services patches (the largest three Army components; Army Ground Forces, Army Air Forces, and Army Service Forces); * 8 Army patches (old and new style patches for the Fifth Army); * 16 Army Corps patches (old and new style patches for XI Corps); * 8 Service Command patches; * 67 Infantry and Airborne Division patches; * 10 Cavalry Division patches; * 5 Frontier Defense Sector patches; * 31 Regional and Functional Commands and Department patches; * 7 variations of the Army Air Corp and Army Air Force insignia; * 15 numbered Air Force patches; * 8 Air Force Specialist and Cadet insignia; * 6 Marine Corps Division patches (old and new style patches for the 2nd Marine Division); and * 5 Marine Corps Defense Battalion, Air Wing, and Amphibious Corps insignia. ce. It isn?t very difficult to imagine a teen-ager?who in a year or two would be serving in Europe or the Pacific?acquiring these patches (most likely from an ?approval service? much like collectible stamps are often sold) and listening to the beat of war drums on radio news while painstakingly crafting the album pages upon which they are mounted. Some of these patches are very scarce and command prices well into the hundreds of dollars (for example a 101st Airborne Division patch with a white-tongued eagle and an original Army Air Force patch). Over half sell individually for $20 to $60 a piece.

        Tropic of Cancer

      NY: Medusa, 1940, 1940. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION PRESENTATION COPY. 1 vol., Inscribed and signed by Miller on the title page: "For Bill Meek with pleasant memories of Washington. Henry Miller. 10/31/40.". Bound in the original magenta wrappers, spine sunned, covers sunned unevenly, corners rubbed, slight slant to spine, internally clean and bright, overall still a VERY GOOD copy. A nice early inscription the year of publication. Shifreen & Jackson A9q. This work went through five legitimate editions in Paris before the first pirated version of this book appeared in America. This was the so-called "Medusa" edition of 1940, published by Jacob R. Brussells and was printed on Lexington Ave. The ruse of printing "Imprenta de Mexico" on the last page failed to mislead authorities, and Brussells served a 2 year sentence in jail for his involvement in the project. Miller new about this edition. The bulk of the 2000 copies were sold through Francis Setloff at Gotham Book Mart and through Ben Abrahamson in his bookshop in Chicago for $10 per copy. It has been suggested that Miller received a lump sum of $1,000 from each of the booksellers instead of a 10% royalty on sales, nut he makes no reference to any such windfall in his letters, and the story is probably apocryphal.

        Britain's Strength: Speech by the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Winston Churchill, in the House of Commons, August 20, 1940

      New York: The British Library of Information, 1940. British Library of Information edition, only printing. Pamphlet. This is a beautifully preserved copy of one of Churchill's most famous speeches, occasioned by the Battle of Britain and honoring the RAF pilots who almost single-handedly prevented Nazi invasion of England. The British first edition - with gray wraps printed in red - is the edition most commonly seen. Here is the considerably more scarce British Library of information edition, published in New York for the American audience. This pamphlet is one in a series of Churchill's speeches printed by the British Library of Information in New York. The British Library of Information published twenty-nine editions of statements, speeches, and broadcast addresses by Prime Minister Winston Churchill, beginning with his first speech as Prime Minister of May 13, 1940 and ending with the broadcast address of November 29, 1942. These editions were often issued within two or three days of delivery and "reveal the political determination of the British government to bring the inspiration and steadfastness of the Prime Minister and the British nation to an American nation not yet engaged in the war. Indeed, twenty-two of the BLOI speech pamphlets were published before Pearl Harbor." (Cohen, Volume I, p.513, A120) Churchill encapsulated and immortalized the struggle that America would not formally join for more than a year when he uttered the words: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." The famous bibliographic reference Printing and the Mind of Man, which surveys the impact of the printed word on Western Civilization, singles out this speech. This rare first U.S. edition of this remarkable Churchill speech is in truly exceptional, fine condition. The pamphlet is 8 pages, wire stitched, in self-wrappers, and measures 9 x 6 inches. The paper is bright, crisp, and clean with no wear or creases. The binding staples are bright and tight with no corrosion. A flawless copy in all respects. The pamphlet is protected in an archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A131.2, Woods A60(b), Printing and the Mind of Man (PMM) 424.

        For Whom The Bell Tolls.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1940. First Edition. Octavo, original beige cloth. Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket without the photographer's name on the rear panel, with a touch of rubbing and a closed tear to the rear panel. A very nice example. For Whom the Bell Tolls combines two of the author's recurring obsessions: war and personal honor. "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).

        FANTASY.

      - PANORAMA. FANTASY. no publication information or text (but purchased with a group of Hebrew books from 1940). Oblong 4to (9 1/4 x 8 1/4"), pictorial boards bound accordion style with 8 illustrations (4 panels illustrated on both sides), VG+. This unusual book actually shows 2 fantasy trips that take place in the Middle East. It begins in a child's room with the window wide open and toys on the floor but no child. The child is seen flying on top of a giant winged insect, he is then seen walking toward a large castle, then boating down a river, then in a flying chariot pulled by a giant bird. Meanwhile the toys have come alive and are guided by a wizard. They visit the Sphinx in Egypt, a walled city (Jerusalem?) and end up back in the room with the wizard performing magic. Theoretically the child could make up any story to accompany the pictures which are fine color lithographs filling each panel. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Early World War Two Army and Marine Corps shoulder patch collection.

      circa 1940-1942. 189 Army and Marine Corps shoulder patches mounted on 13” x 15” scrapbook pages. The patches are all in nice shape; a couple have a little light soiling. They are affixed to the album with what appears to be white school-type paste and should be easy to remove if desired. Almost all of the patches are identified by captions on the album pages, and the few that aren’t are readily found on-line and in reference books. All of the pages show edge-wear and have pulled loose from the study scrapbook binder, but could be easily reinforced with hole-reinforcement-stickers (available at any office supply store) and reinserted. The patches include all of the major units that were active by mid-1942 except for the armored divisions. The patches are grouped by unit type: * 3 Autonomous Services patches (the largest three Army components; Army Ground Forces, Army Air Forces, and Army Service Forces); * 8 Army patches (old and new style patches for the Fifth Army); * 16 Army Corps patches (old and new style patches for XI Corps); * 8 Service Command patches; * 67 Infantry and Airborne Division patches; * 10 Cavalry Division patches; * 5 Frontier Defense Sector patches; * 31 Regional and Functional Commands and Department patches; * 7 variations of the Army Air Corp and Army Air Force insignia; * 15 numbered Air Force patches; * 8 Air Force Specialist and Cadet insignia; * 6 Marine Corps Division patches (old and new style patches for the 2nd Marine Division); and * 5 Marine Corps Defense Battalion, Air Wing, and Amphibious Corps insignia. ce. It isn’t very difficult to imagine a teen-ager—who in a year or two would be serving in Europe or the Pacific—acquiring these patches (most likely from an “approval service” much like collectible stamps are often sold) and listening to the beat of war drums on radio news while painstakingly crafting the album pages upon which they are mounted. Some of these patches are very scarce and command prices well into the hundreds of dollars (for example a 101st Airborne Division patch with a white-tongued eagle and an original Army Air Force patch). Over half sell individually for $20 to $60 a piece.

        Why England Slept.

      New York: Wilfred Funk, Inc, 1940. First edition. Octavo, original red cloth. Signed by "Jack Kennedy" on the dedication page in a contemporary hand. Light rubbing and wear, an excellent example in a very good dust jacket with some chips and wear to the extremities. Published the year Kennedy graduated from Harvard, Why England Slept was an expansion of his senior thesis. The title is a variation on the title of Winston Churchill's work, While England Slept, published about two years before Kennedy's. It was dedicated to John's parents, Rose and Joe Kennedy. In this work he attempts to explain why England was so poorly prepared for World War II and why England's leaders settled upon the disastrous policies of appeasement. The book served as a warning to those in our country who felt that appeasing Hitler and staying out of the war was a viable option. It became a bestseller in the United States and went through several printings in its first year. (Newcomb, 10)

        Chief of Longview, The Great Parader [rare]

      Privately Printed [Colt Press], San Francisco 1940 - The text is in near fine condition ¿ tight, with no marks, tears, or dog ears. The pages are age-tanned. The previous owner¿s bookplate is tipped in on the first free end paper. The grey-green cover is in very good condition, but for fading and discoloring. The upper corners are lightly bumped. Two full-paged illustrations and a lineage chart. Another copy of this rare book sold at auction for $570 at PBA Galleries in 2008. Chief of Longview was deemed ¿one of the best bred stallions of saddle horse history.¿ He was born in 1922 at Longview Farm, Missouri, where he was then raised and trained. Bought by San Francisco shipping fortune heiress Lurline Matson Roth, Chief of Longview was the World Champion stallion four times. He was the only horse to win the $10,000 stake at the Kentucky State Fair two successive years ¿ 1928 and 1929. His fame as a model five-gaited horse was so wide that he became Ralston Purina¿s advertisement for their new horse feed. Chief of Longview competed in all the major American horse shows over an eight-year period and then was put out to stud at the age of ten in Kansas.[Info from Wikipedia and the book itself.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Letter to the World (Swirl)" - Original Barbara Morgan Photograph

      - Signed, titled, and dated by the photographer in ink in the lower margin; her signature, title, creation and print dates (1940; c. 1980) on the reverse. In fine condition. 13 1/4" h x 15 1/2" w (image), 21 1/4" h x 21 1/4" w. References: Barbara Morgan (Aperture, 1999), cover; Curtis L. Carter and William C. Agee, Barbara Morgan: Prints, Drawings, Watercolors & Photographs (Marquette University, 1988), pl. 71; Beaumont Newhall, The History of Photography from 1839 to the Present Day (The Museum of Modern Art, 1964), p. 151; Chorus of Light: Photographs from the Sir Elton John Collection (High Museum of Art, 2000), p. 181. "The present image of Martha Graham in her 1940 ballet, 'Letter to the World,' is among Barbara Morgan's finest images and arguably the most famous dance photograph of the twentieth century. The premiere of Graham's important 'Letter to the World' took place on 11 August 1940, at the Bennington College Theater in Vermont. Martha Graham, Erick Hawkins, Merce Cunningham, and Jane Dudley were the original performers. The ballet was accompanied by the spoken poetry of Emily Dickinson; the title of the ballet is taken from a Dickinson poem which begins, 'This is my letter to the World/ That never wrote to Me. . . .' The present image was not made at a performance of the live ballet; rather, the photograph was taken in one of the studio spaces used by Morgan in New York City. It was Morgan's custom to attend repeated rehearsals and performances of the dances she planned to photograph, and watch for significant moments that she would later re-create in a studio setting. In collaboration with the dancers, most especially Graham herself, Morgan would discuss the choreography, music, and philosophy behind each ballet, then focus on a small group of movements that would represent the essence of the work as a whole. Morgan called these selected moments of action '"instants of combustion'" (quoted in Aperture, Barbara Morgan, p. 7). The legacy of Martha Graham in dance of the twentieth century is without parallel. Even those who have never seen a Graham ballet, however, are familiar with her work through Morgan's photograph. In its perfection of lighting, its deft capture of the floating costume, and its evocation of Graham's arrested, fluid motion, the photograph has become synonymous with not only 'Letter to the World,' but also with the world of modern dance."

        Verve: The French Review of Art. Nr. 7, Vol. 2. April-July 1940.

      Paris: Éditions de la Revue Verve,, 1940:. [subtitled:] Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. Calendar by Pol de Limbourg and Jean Colombe. Text by Henri Malo. Translated by Robert Sage. Quarto (345 x 246 mm). Contemporary three-quarter cream-coloured morocco designed and finished by L. Mounteney, decorative gilt spine with red morocco circular onlays, sides with gilt fleur-de-lys motif, purple moiré silk sides, all edges gilt, blue moiré silk endleaves. 12 mounted colour plates. Joints cracked at head and tail of spine, sides faded at periphery, some old water stains on back cover, a little wear to extremities. A very striking binding designed and finished by Leonard Mounteney, "an exhibition finisher for Riviere & Sons of London. Like many other European and British binders, Mounteney emigrated to America where, in his case, he found employment at the Donnelley Bindery in Chicago and later went to work for the Cuneo Fine Binding Studio of Milwaukee" (Philip R. Bishop, Extra Binding and The Mosher Books, IOBA Standard: The Journal of the Independent Online Booksellers Association). This particular example was most probably executed for the American collector Earl J. Brady (his catalogue file cards are loosely inserted). The quality of colour reproduction is remarkable considering the circumstances of the time.
