        The Big Sea: An Autobiography.

      New York:: Knopf,, 1940. . A Very Good, tight copy with foxing to the board edges in a Very Good plus, bright, unclipped dust jacket with foxing to the folds of the jacket. There are two closed edge tears. This very uncommon autobiography chronicles the life of Langston Hughes with a special focus on his coming of age in Paris in the 1920s and his role in the Harlem Renaissance. As a black poet, novelist and playwrite, Hughes became of one of the pre-eminent writers of the modern movement, but not before working at a number odd jobs along the way including working as a seaman on tramp freighters to Europe, teaching English in Mexico and working in a night club in Paris. .

        Sammlung jiddischer, neuhochdeutscher und rumänischer Lieder mit eigenh. U. Bukarest und Wien, 1940-1949.

      1940. 8 eh. SS. und 37 SS. Typoskript (teils Durchschläge), vielfach mit eigenh. Zusätzen und Korrekturen, zumeist mit eh. U. Zusammen in Mappe der "Societatea Comunala a Tramvaielor Bucuresti", eh. beschriftet "Moderne Walzer-Bostons | Proprietatea: Tedi Weinberg". Unter der jiddischen Liedern (durchwegs in lateinischer Schrift) das immer wieder überarbeitete Hauptwerk "Oi, a Jeschie! (Jüdisches Klagelied)", das eine beeindruckende zeitgenössische literarische Reaktion auf den Holocaust darstellt: "Oi a Jeschie, oi a Jeschie, Gottiniu schick ins a Hilf bald fin dir. Genig gestruft host di ins of a mul, Beweis ein Wess far dein trei Volk Jisruel [...] vertrieben fin Haus in Hoif sennen mir. A tell fin ins Jiden hot menn gemacht, ganze Familien, verschleppt in der Nacht. Schiessen in Hängen, Brennen in Tränken, dus is gewesen dem Rusche sein Plan [...] Gekimmen is die Zeit, mir senn schoin bereit, zi fuhren in inser Land, Erez Jisruel, dorten is keiner nit mehr ganz allein, dort senn mir Jiden bei ins in der heim [...] Denn di beste S'choire of der großen Welt, is doch ins're Toire wie Gold in Geld [...]". Weitere jiddische Werke sind "Die Jesoime", "Die hantige Welt", "Die jüdische Chasene" und das Säuferlied "Oi Mame! Dus Lied fin dem Schicker". - Ferner enthalten sind die Tangos "Die Liebe ist ja wie ein Hauch", "Spiel du Zigeuner" und "Sag' es mir noch einmal", das Wienerlied "Wien, du herrliche Stadt!" im Walzer-Takt, außerdem die rumänischen Lieder "Munta evreascha!" ("cântat de Al. Rony") und "Lui Soli" sowie ein obszönes Liedchen "Die 12 Schwestern". Teils datiert "9. Mai 1940 Bucarest" bzw. "Soli Border, ha Barmizwa 12. III. 1944". Wie weitere Datierungen (28. II. 1949, "Herb. d. St. Wien") zeigen, überlebte der Komponist die Shoah; enthaltene Aufzeichnungen zur Übernahme von Behandlungs- und Verpflegungskosten durch die Magistratsabteilung 13 zeugen von Weinbergs Zeit als Flüchtling im Nachkriegswien. Mappe verso beschriftet "30 Compositionen gemacht bis Jänner 1951 Wien"; der ursprüngliche Aufdruck läßt möglicherweise auf eine frühere Anstellung Weinbergs bei den Bukarester Straßenbahnlinien schließen.

        FIREWALL

      New York: Random House, 1940. First Edition. Very Good Plus/Very Good. New York: Random House, 1940 The first "biker" novel. This rare and groundbreaking novel centres on a motorcycle run more than a decade before anyone else wrote obout the subject. Clark's first novel. Compared to Fitzgerald by Random House publisher Robert K. Haas. Lots of "machine age angst" and of interest to the academic and anthropologist as well as the biker and collector of motorcycle literature. The run to Massachusetts climaxes with a firewall crash event, where the riders crash through a barricade of boards ablaze with gas. There doesn't seem to be room for both Goose and club president Dolph Berger at the controls. Too much whiskey too. Gunplay and violence and the cops are looking for Smoky and the Berkshire Ramblers. This is the oldest American novel about a motorcycle clubs/gangs by years, and an exceptional rarity. The classic of vintage bike books; both deep and raw. The book is hard bound in original brick cloth with black titling. The original wine and white pictorial endpapers front and rear show the Firewall. The original dust jacket by A. T. Lougee shows a rider in wine, red and white. P. 221. The book is clean and tight with no former ownership marks. The dust jacket is complete with original $2 price intact. The high spot and rarity of a serious rider's collection. Scans on request, questions cheerfully answered and customer satisfaction quaranteed.

        Original Signed Halsman Photograph as Don Giovanni

      - Superlative original 1940's doubleweight photograph of the great Italian Basso in his most celebrated role, inscribed and signed in white ink: "To Jean with happy remembrances of our stay together in the South Pacific and warmest wishes for Your happiness and future Ezio." Photographed by the American portrait photographer Philippe Halsman, with photo credit printed in white on bottom right and stamped on the back. 8 x 10 inches.Pinza, famed for his charm and sex appeal as well as his rich bass voice, first appeared as Don Giovanni in 1929. He would become particularly associated with the role after Bruno Walter engaged him to sing it in Salzburg in 1934. Walter was convinced that Pinza would be right for the part when he remembered the effect the singer had had on the Walters' cook when he visited the family in New York: after answering the door, she ran back to Elsa Walter and whispered, "Ma'am, there's such a beautiful man outside." After the war years, Pinza became a major celebrity in the USA as the first Emil de Becque in Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific, winning hearts across the country with the hit "Some Enchanted Evening."Born in Riga to a Jewish family, Philippe Halsman began his career as a photographer in France in the 1930's, and gained a reputation as one of the best portrait photographers in France. He escaped France for the U.S. after the German invasion with help from Albert Einstein. After working as a fashion photographer and collaborating with artists including Salvador Dali, he became best known for his portraits of figures such as Einstein, JFK, Alfred Hitchcock, Judy Garland, Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, and Pablo Picasso, many of which appeared on the cover of Life magazine.

        La Doctrine Communiste de Marx - Engels - Lénine - Staline en six cours. Complet. Les Bases Théoriques du Communisme. Vers la Réalisation du Communisme. La IIe Internationale. Vingt ans de Luttes. Que veulent les Communistes ?

      Parti Communiste Français (S.F.I.C.)Exceptionnelle réunion des 6 volumes de ces cours pour cadres du Parti Communistes, rédigés, imprimés et distribués dans la clandestinité entre 1940 et 1942 et sur lesquels on ne dispose pas d'informations précises (auteurs, lieu d'impression, mode de diffusion) hors de ce que l'on peut déduire de la lecture. Le virage politique dû à l'invasion de l'URSS par l'Allemagne nazie est marquant pour le dernier cours paru. Il est probable que l'on a cherché à détruire une partie des brochures antérieures à celle-ci. 6 vol. de format in-12, agraffés. Cours n°1 : Les Bases Théoriques du Communisme. 28 p. Ce 1er volume est un résumé de l'"Histoire du Parti Communiste-bolchevik de l'URSS", parue en français en 1939 (trad. G. Cogniot) et proposée ici afin de redorer le blason d'une URSS qui apparaît alors au public français comme l'alliée de l'Allemagne nazie ; la guerre en cours étant qualifiée de "guerre impérialiste" entre deux blocs impérialistes rivaux. Ce tome est probablement imprimé à l'automne 1940. Cours n°2 : Vers la Réalisation du Communisme. 33 p., là aussi pour l'essentiel un résumé de "L'Histoire du Parti Communiste-bolchevik de l'URSS", qui invite le lecteur à se réjouir de la "libération pacifique" des Pays Baltes et de la Bessarabie, ainsi que des invasions de l'Est de la Pologne, et de la Finlande. Porte une mention d'impression en décembre 1940, mais pourrait avoir été rédigé durant l'été. Cours n°3 : Vers la Réalisation du Communisme. Deux systèmes : Capitalisme et Socialisme. 46 p. Probablement rédigé en novembre 1940 (mentionne la nomination de René Belin au Ministère du Travail, le décret de dissolution de la CGT et le 23° anniversaire de la Révolution d'Octobre) et imprimé en décembre, comme mentionné en fin de volume. La rédaction de ces trois premiers tomes pourrait être l'oeuvre de Maurice Tréand, responsable de la Commission des Cadres du PC, connu pour avoir été à la manoeuvre dans les négociations avec l'occupant nazi pour la reparution légale de L'Humanité et la légalisation du Parti (interdit en septembre 1939). Il pourrait avoir été supervisé par Eugen Fried. Cours n°4 : La IIe Internationale. Sa Dégénérescence et sa Décomposition. 46 p. Tréand désormais sur la touche, Fried a pu là aussi co-rédiger ce cours, avec l'aide possible d'intellectuels (Gabriel Péri, Georges Politzer ou Jacques Decour par exemple). Mention d'impression en mars 1941. Ce cours défend toujours le pacte germano-soviétique. Cours n°4 : Vingt ans de luttes pour le Salut du Peuple de France. Histoire du Parti Communiste Français. 81 p. Un document plus complexe et nuancé que les précédents, où la dénonciation de l'impérialisme allemand occupe une place plus importante : la ligne commence à s'infléchir. Des intellectuels, peut-être des historiens, ont participé à sa rédaction. L'impression est d'une qualité très inférieure à celle des brochures précédentes. Mention d'impression : mai 1941. Cours n°6 : Que veulent les Communistes ? 86 p. Alors que la fin du cours précéden annonçait un tome consacré à la lutte pour le "renversement de l'oligarchie", le programme du cours est brutalement changé (et reporté) par lés événements : l'Allemagne nazie a brisé le Pacte germano-soviétique en juin 1941, et l'asservissement par l'Allemagne hitlérienne est (enfin !) mentionné dès la première page comme l'ennemi principal. Le double objectif étant alors de "libérer complètement et définitivement la France" et de sauver l'URSS, patrie de "l'homme civilisé". La France est alors à "l'arrière du front nazi", et les Etats-Unis comme l'Angleterre sont ses alliés. Appel à l'action, ce document passionnant vante la lutte économique et syndicale contre l'occupant et le Régime de Vichy et la lutte pour la Culture française contre l'obscurantisme. La deuxième partie est un véritable programme politique pour la France libérée. Impression datée de février 1942 et de bien meilleure facture que le volume précédent. Ce rare ensemble de documents est en bel état de conservation, sans annotation ni rature, sans tache, rousseur, déchirure ni autre défaut notable.Bon Etat

        Design for an "Umbrella Barrage Aerial Bomb

      s.l.: s.n., n.d. (not after 1940). Very good antiquarian condition. Three blueprints, 17 x 20.75 inches, attached along the shorter size, folds visible, with accompanying black leatherette folder. A strange and unsettling juxtaposition of white snowflakes on blue ground, the aesthetic appeal of these technical designs betray the potentially horrific damage rendered by an array of explosives. The decidedly Art-Deco borders and technical drawings, the artist indentified only by the monogram PRH, convey a cold, austere elegance. Inscribed and signed "Read and understood, J.H. Payne, Sept. 12th, 1940." This is almost certainly Joseph H. ("Bubbles") Payne who was, at the time of this death, Lead Navigator, 100th Bombardment Group. Payne was killed in action on 28 April 1944 over Sottevast, France, and is buried at the Omaha Beach Cemetery.

Illus. with 19 mounted silver-gelatin photographs with spider-web tissue guards, 29 b/w photo-reproductions on 7 plates, and two small portraits. Over forty original signatures and inscriptions, some a paragraph long, on the front pastedown and verso of first leaf, plus one or two later on, all presumably members of the regiment. Includes a short history of the Regiment. A group photo of 28 officers has a separate bound-in key identifying them by name and rank. Created on May 29, 1810 and immediately sent as part of the relief expedition to the interior provinces, Regimiento no. 3 de Infanteria "General Belgrano" is the most prestigious brigade in the Argentinean army. This 1940 album, produced on the 140th anniversary of the regiment, was a crucial time for the military in Argentina, with the country officially neutral, but much influenced by the German military. The Regiment was led by General Ambrosio Vago (first photograph), a supporter of the Allies, who had refused to take part in the coup of 1930, though at this time was urging a new coup, along with a number of Axis-leaning officers, to oust President Ramón Castillo, with the goal of holding non-fraudulent elections. But it would be Peron who would lead the coup in 1943, with Vago, though ostensibly a Peronist, not participating, and exiled to Bahia Blanca. A rare photographic record of the Argentinean military before Peron's ascendancy. We could locate no copies of this nor any similar items in OCLC or other Latin American or European library databases.

        Archive of paste-ups for radiofax news articles from the Buffalo Evening News, 1940

      Buffalo, NY: Buffalo Evening News, 1940. Archive of ten original paste ups of radiofax news articles by the Buffalo Evening News, dated variously between January 17 and December 7, 1940. Radiofax, or radiofacsimile, was developed in the early twentieth century as a way to transmit images wirelessly using radio waves. RCA began manufacturing teleprinters for home use in the late 1920s, allowing people to receive and print local newspapers, as well as receive updated and breaking news, at home. Radiofax news services remained popular into the 1950s, when they were largely replaced by television. The technology is still used today by government weather services and the shipping industry. The paste ups in this archive would have been prepared at the offices of the Buffalo Evening News, scanned and transmitted by radio to subscribers in the area. Each paste up is date stamped, most with page numbers or brief layout guidelines in red pencil. Two of the paste ups feature copies of two comic strips (Adamson's Adventures by Henry Thol and Smatter Pop by Payne). The rest feature news items, including a visit by FDR to Buffalo and several items regarding the war in Europe, with photographs tipped directly onto the page. An archive of scarce ephemera regarding a mostly forgotten method of media communication, which nevertheless served a precursor to both television and the wifi of today. Paste ups 8.5. x 11 inches, generally Very Good plus or better. Tipped in photographs Near Fine.

        For Whom The Bell Tolls.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1940. First edition, with the Scribners A on the copyright page. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Ernest Hemingway on the page following the front free endpaper. Fine in a excellent near fine first issue dust jacket with a few small closed tears. 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).
