        For Whom The Bell Tolls.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1940 - First edition with the Scribners A of the novel that is regarded as one of Hemingway's best works. Octavo, bound in full morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. A very nice presentation. For Whom the Bell Tolls combines two of Hemingway'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). It was the basis for the 1943 film directed by Sam Wood, starring Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman. It was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress; however, only the Greek actress Katina Paxinou won an Oscar for her portrayal of Pilar.

        Archive of Hundreds of Manuscript, Handwritten Scraps, and Typed Pages

      [No Publisher] [1940], [No Place] - An extensive collection of the poems of Frances Frost. Frances Frost (August 3, 1905 - February 11, 1959) was an American poet, novelist and the mother of poet Paul Blackburn. This collection contains hundreds of typed pages of poetry as well as clippings of published poems from newspapers and literary magazines dating from the early 1930's to the late 1940's. Many of the typed pages indicate that they have been copied from another source. The vast majority of the poems are by Frances Frost, but a few poems are attributed to other poets, such as a handwritten copy of Ballad of the Bloodthirsty Reader by Ethel Jacobson, indicated at bottom of page: Sat. Rev. of Lit. 10-27, 45. There are also contemporary newspaper clippings about Frances Frost that date mostly from the 30's and during World War Two (including a wedding announcement for her second marriage). The pages are in various states, but most are very good quality. The cache of papers is held in an envelope (mailed from Canada) addressed to a Dr. C. L. Hubbs of the Scripps Institution in California, though there is no known or apparent connection between Ms. Frost and Dr. Hubbs (who was a well-known ichthyologist). A known photocopy of Ms. Frost's handwriting is similar enough to the handwritten items in this collection to warrant further study, and may indicate that these pieces were her personal notes, copies and compositions. Some of the poems may be original unpublished works; Frances Frost published four books of poetry during the 30's and wrote and published many more children's books throughout the 1940's and 1950's. Her poetry was published in numerous magazines including The New Yorker, Harpers, The Saturday Review, as well as numerous newspapers. Among the hundreds of poems in this collection, the typed pages include the poems: Poem for an Autumn Morning? Return,? Pattern of Summer, Verge, Poem for the Body, and Voice for the April Dusk. Many handwritten poems are also included; some are incomplete and without titles, while some are complete; including the poems: Rebellion, To a Light-Hearted Love, Maine Island, and Old Pasture.

        Five Young American Poets

      Norfolk, Connecticut: New Directions, 1940. Fine/Very Good. First edition. Fine in modestly age-toned very good or better dustwrapper. The first commercial book appearance of these five poets, preceding Berryman's and Jarrell's own separate first books by two years. Inscribed by John Berryman to a philosophy professor at Columbia University: "To Irwin Edman: On page 45, a paper on aesthetics long overdue. with sincere regard, John Berryman. Boston 18 Oct 1941." Laid in is the front of the original mailing parcel hand-addressed by Berryman to Edman, with his name repeated in the return address. Page 45 contains Berryman's introduction to the selection of his poems entitled "A Note on Poetry." Both Edman and Berryman both belonged to the Boar's Head Society at Columbia, a social group devoted to poetry. Berryman graduated from Columbia in 1936, so, indeed, his paper (whatever it was) was long overdue.

Single leafs, regiment stationery featuring the regiment's China Dragon insignia, measuring approximately 11,5 x 17,5 cm, at least half of which are in their original covers measuring approximately 12 x 9,5 cm and featuring censorship stamps. Together with 4 army documents pertaining to his transfer to the Royal Berkshire Regiment in 1940, one photographic string-tied Christmas greeting card issued for use by the regiment officers in 1941, and one portrait photograph. Army documents creased, otherwise the lot in very good condition. Cyril James Lear (1911-1987) was a British newspaper editor, who served with the Royal Army during World War II. On 18 April 1939 he was enlisted as a rifleman with the Queen's Westminsters. He obtained a commission as a Major in the Royal Berkshire Regiment in September 1940. The present stationery suggests that he was attached to the sixth battalion. Glimpses of army duty and camp life during the Second World War are dispersed in Lear's affectionate letters to his wife. Over the four year span he reveals the dangers of travel, his concerns for the welfare of his family, worry for the civilians of Plymouth during the Blitz. He shares both heart-warming and distressing encounters with some of the local folks in Ireland.. Manuscript.

Most of them were snapped in my favorite places in Perth Amboy, usually near the [word?]. They are snaps of myself and my friends and are both comic and serious pictures. These are a few memoirs of some of the swell times I have had." Underneath this it reads, "P.S. since I began this book, more years have passed than I stated above: hence, this book also covers, 1939 & 1940, with pictures at plays & at work." The album does just that, follows Olsen over three years spending time with her friends and visiting her favorite places in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Olsen and her friends are pictured lounging on the beach and later ice skating all while smiling and obviously aware of the camera. The photos are a mix of portraits and candid snaps of people laughing and enjoying each other's company and coastal landscapes. One photo shows a ferry at night and a plane at Newark Airport as well as one that is captioned, "freighters at anchor in Raritan Bay." Olsen tried her hand at more artistic shots of water, the docks, boats, and even a still life of a park bench covered in snow. Towards the end of the album there are group photos of several school activites Olsen was involved with including the Triangle Club, the N.J. Club, and varsity cheerleading.An interesting collection of photographs of a young woman and her friends in the late 1930s.

Contains 347 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.25" x 1.25" and 7" x 9", with captions and related ephemera. Album is very good with worn edges and tears on the tissue guards with near fine photographs with occasional creasing.A photo album kept by a pilot while working for Air Dispatch, Ltd. out of the United Kingdom beginning in the late 1930s, many focusing on the war years, and with a few later photos from the 1950s. The company specialized in shipping goods as well as providing special charter planes out of the Airport of London in Croydon and Heston Airport in Middlesex, and also from a hub in Cardiff, Wales. The album shows a variety of different planes with captions listing the type of vessel and the date that the photo was taken. The compiler also documented numerous crashes, as well as planes that were used by famous aviators of the time including Amy Johnson's Percival Gull aircraft with Johnson barely visible in the background. Johnson had just set a racing world record on a trip to South Africa. The album shows take-offs and landings, as well as mid-flight photographs taken from both the ground and while flying. One photo of a German plane with a swastika on the tail which reads, "Sept. 1st 1939 on the last regular scheduled airline run by Seutche Luft Hansa before the outbreak of war." One page shows the process of repairing a plane from a severe crash in 1940.Many of the planes in the early 1940s were involved in the war effort and the airports were used to repair and refuel before the next mission. A French Potez 63-11 plane is featured here after being "shot down near Eastbourne after a German raid on London Sept. 1940." Later a similar plane is seen that was part of a Free French Air Force. There are also wonderful aerial photos from the skies over England and the Channel. One photo reads, "cargo boat in mid-Channel from 2000 ft. Dec. 39;" another reads, "Croydon control tower seen while coming in to land 1939." A photo of Hawker Hurricane aircraft in a V-formation reads, "hurricanes over Wallington February 1941." The Hurricane, while often overshadowed by the Spitfire, was an important part of the British victory during the Battle of Britain. Many of the German planes at the base are referred to as "junkers." Laid-in are some larger photos measuring 6.5" x 8.5" of aircraft and one of the pilots of the Channel Islands Airways. Also present are a pad of unused "store requisitions" forms, a 1956 customs inquiry, a Rolls-Royce aircraft engine advertisement, and a charter plane advertisement.A rich and extensive look at the war time efforts of a merchant airline company.

        [Photo Album]: English Nurse after Dunkirk and in India World War II

      India, 1940. Near Fine. Oblong quarto measuring 9" x 12.5". String-tied green leather over paper boards. Contains 175 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 1.5 and 6" x 10" with captions. Worn edges, tears, and rubbing else very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a British nurse in England and India from 1940-1944. The first page shows photos from the grounds of a hospital in Leatherhead, England. Known as Leatherhead Emergency Hospital it was actually the Royal Blind School which had been requisitioned by King's College Hospital as a "national emergency hospital" for the duration of the war. Here the nurse poses with colleagues and wounded survivors of Dunkirk who sit smiling while in wheel chairs, on crutches, and with some covered in bandages. The weeks of fighting in France lead to the evacuation of the British and sent thousands home to England to be treated for wounds. One photo shows the queen exiting a building of the hospital with a nurse and getting into her car. Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, was known for visiting wounded soldiers throughout the country to boost morale as part for the war effort.In 1941 she was sent to India where she started her time at the Western Ghats. These photos show the splendor of the mountain ranges and jungle and include some hand colored snapshots. She continued to explore the country over the next three years attending the Poona Races, visiting the Bombay museum, and taking a trip to Meerut. Throughout the album it is clear she was interested in honing her photography skills and had a good eye for the art. She captured the locals of the cities she visits while they work and interact with each other. One photo shows a snake charmer performing at the Hotel Cecil in Dehli, another captioned, "New Camel, New Wife" shows a recently married couple atop a camel. Women in Kashmir are seen in colorful clothing holding their babies, another photo shows a young man making papier-mache bowels, another shows a group captioned as "prisoners" being marched away. In Meerut she took numerous photos of the wild life and included a photo of a graveyard built for monkeys. She attended local events including the Hindu, Durga Poojah, and Tibetan festivals and took pictures of the gatherings. One of the most striking images is of a man lounging on a bed of nails in Sadhu. She worked at the Poona (Pune) Barrack Hospital which can be seen towards the end of the album. Here she poses with soldiers from the China-Burma-India Theater recovering from their wounds. There are photos captioned "staff" and "patients" that capture the life at the hospital with smiling men goofing off with the nurses. She also attended a military wedding for an officer in Meerut which included uniformed men holding swords for the new couple to walk through. The final photos show a grave site with a large angel statue and a hand colored photo of a meditating statue of Buddha.An interesting account of a British nurse's time serving on both the home front and in India with the medical corps during World War II, especially interesting for the immediacy of the Dunkirk images.
