      We offer for sale this collection of 18 letters and hand-written cards, which span the years 1940 to 1967 and contain many interesting comments and observations, not only about Ms Brittain's writing, philosophy, and her relationship with Winifred Holtby, but also of a personal and family nature. All of the correspondence is addressed to Dorothy Perkin, a friend and admirer of Vera Brittain. Throughout the comments below Vera Brittain is referred to as "VB", and Dorothy Perkin as "DP". "ALS" means "autograph letter signed, i.e., the letter is entirely in the author's hand. "TLS" means "typed letter signed", i.e. a typed letter, signed by the author.1) Hand-written card measuring 9 x 11 cm dated 30/4/40 from Lyndhurst, Hants., to DP thanking her for sending an admiring letter about "Testament of Friendship", and remarking that "through it you have learnt still more about Winifred Holtby's beautiful life and work". Signed "Vera Brittain". 2) Folded ALS, dated Feb. 20, 1941, from 43 Atheneum Court, London W. 1, 22 lines in pen, written on both sides, and signed "Vera Brittain", addressed to "Dear Miss Perkins". It begins: "Thank you very much for writing me such a kind letter about my books. I am glad that they mean something to you in this world of crises and catastrophes. You certainly have known little else in your short life. I am often glad that I am just old enough to remember the pre-1914 period in which I was at school [Brittain was 42 when she wrote this]". VB then goes on to discuss her pacifist views and hopes for peace. 3) Folded TLS, dated 19th November, 1941, in stamped envelope, addressed from 67 Richmond Hill Court, Richmond, 20 lines, signed by VB, addressed to "Dear Miss Perkin". First paragraph thanks DP for two letters and regrets not having had a chance to speak to her at Youth Forum. Second paragraph explains why she will not be traveling in the near future due to the pressures of her work. 4) Folded typed letter, dated 20th November, 1942, headed "Vera Brittain's Letter", and from 67 Richmond Hill Court, Richmond, 32 lines, signed by secretary "p.p. Vera Brittain", addressed to "Dear Miss Perkin". First paragraph acknowledges and comments upon DP's letter about VB's book "Humiliation with Honour". Second paragraph discusses the teaching of history, closing with the comment "If people could learn history from a really wide and truthful perspective, it would be one of the most valuable ways of preventing wars. This is why I insist so much upon this in my book". Third paragraph contains interesting observations on pacifism. 5) Folded TLS, dated 12th January, 1943, addressed from 67 Richmond Hill Court, Richmond, 24 lines, signed by VB, addressed to "Dear Miss Perkin". First paragraph acknowledges and comments upon DP's letter asking about "the religious attitude in my Letters". Much longer second paragraph sets out an explanation of how religion affects pacifism and war, and vice-versa. 6) Hand-written postcard measuring 9 x 11 cm, dated 21/VI/43, from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, S.W. 3, addressed on stamped side to DP, thanking DP for the page from "The Accountant" which VB indicates will be included in her anthology. 7) Hand-written postcard measuring 9 x 14 cm dated 3/VI/43 from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, addressed on stamped side to DP, acknowledging receipt of letter and cheque "for Kingsley Hall". VB tells DP that "I am opening a meeting with Patrick Figgis to-night & shall give it to him then". There are a few concluding remarks. 8) Folded ALS, dated Dec. 15th, 1943, in stamped envelope, addressed from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, 31 lines, signed by VB, addressed to "Dear Miss Perkin". VB acknowledges further DP contributions to her Anthology, particularly those referencing Sweden and Czechoslovakia. Second paragraph talks about the difficulty of sorting through these contributions. Third paragraph is more personal: VB speaks of her children, and of "trimming a Christmas tree for the first time since 1939". Last paragraph mentions VB's greeting card with "three recently written sonnets of mine". 9) Folded ALS, dated 9.10 43., in stamped envelope, addressed from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, 26 lines, signed by VB, addressed to "Dear Miss Perkin". Again, VB acknowledges receipt of contributions to Anthology, and discusses her progress in first two paragraphs. In last paragraph VB comments "If only it can mitigate the growing indictment of each nation against the other, and contribute even a beam of light to the atmosphere of peace-making, it will have done its job." 10) Hand-written postcard measuring 9 x 14 cm dated 9/VIII/43 from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, addressed on stamped side to DP, acknowledging receipt of Anthology contribution and commenting on "comfortably placed officials advocating hardships for others wh. [when] they wd [would] never dream of enduring themselves." 11) Hand-written card measuring 9 x 14 cm dated 29/2/44 from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, addressed on stamped side to DP, acknowledging further contributions. In the second paragraph VB comments: "The raids [air raids] have meant domestic chars [i.e. cleaning ladies] for me, as thanks to them I have lost members of my staff and my son is at the bomber school in the London area which was rather a shock." Signed "Yours VB". 12) Hand-written card measuring 9 x 14 cm dated 19/7/45 from 2 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, addressed on stamped side to DP, acknowledging DP's letter about "the Birmingham meeting". In the second paragraph she discusses the Potsdam conference. 13) Folded TLS, dated 14th April, 1943, in stamped envelope, addressed from 4, Whitten Court, Westminster, S.W. 1, 16 lines, signed VB, addressed to Dear Mrs. Perkin [sic - Dorothy Perkin never married]. VB comments in the first paragraph about DP's observation that VB's daughter was standing as socialist candidate for Harwich [born Shirley Caitlin, later the Baroness Williams of Crosby, socialist politician and academic]. "It is quite a minor triumph in its way, since she is only 22, and I do not think that a girl of that age has ever been selected before." In the second paragraph, VB comments on the work in progress (i.e. "Testament of Experience"). 14) Hand-written card measuring 9 x 14 cm, dated 8.10.58, from 4 Whitehall Court, S.W. 1, contained in stamped envelope addressed to DP The card is in VB's handwriting, written on both sides (25 lines). VB apologizes for the brief reply explaining she is in the midst of packing for a six month visit to North America, and suggests to DP that she read her most recently published book "Testament of Experience": "I think it might interest you as it continues the story told in the two other Testaments". She continues with comments about Winifred's Holtby's "dust-cover introduction" to "Testament of Youth". Continuing, she relates about her daughter's election win and present activities. Finally, she reveals to DP that she is planning "to publish a new volume of Winfred Holtby's letters - her letters to me - in 1960, when it will be 25 years after her death." The card is signed VB. 15) Folded TLS, dated 16th June, 1959, in stamped envelope, addressed from 4, Whitehall Court, Westminster, S.W. 1, 32 lines, signed VB, addressed to Dear Miss Perkin. The letter brings DP up to date after VB's return from her North American trip, and responds to DP's comments about reading "Testament of Experience". The third paragraph comments on Holtby's "reaction to the prefatory letter in 'South Riding' [Holtby's major work]. The lengthier fourth paragraph contains comments on VB's plan to publish the following year the book of letters, as well as her next book "The Women at Oxford". The fifth paragraph talks about a paperback edition of "Testament of Youth". The last paragraph talks briefly about her recent trip and her visits to Vancouver and Victoria, B.C. 16) Folded TLS, dated February 22nd, 1960, in stamped envelope, addressed from 4, Whitehall Court, Westminster, S.W. 1, 23 lines, signed VB, addressed to Dear Miss Perkin. The first paragraph comments about the recent release of her new book, "The Women at Oxford" and the press reviews of it. The second paragraph refers to the brochure for VB's next book, "Selected Letters of Winifred Holtby and Vera Brittain" and refers to the enclosed brochure for the book [which is present]. The last paragraph gives an account of VB's upcoming trip to Africa where she has been invited by the University of Natal "to take part, as the main woman lecturer, in a conference they are holding in July to celebrate the Union of South Africa's Jubilee..." She continues: "It will be a wonderful opportunity to see things for myself and perhaps try to emulate Harold Macmillan by making clear our attitude towards racial questions without offending my hosts. In this case, they can be subtly discussed in terms of the women who have gained their freedom, but were once in subjection." 17) Folded TLS, dated 9th December, 1960, in stamped envelope, addressed from 4, Whitehall Court, Westminster, S.W. 1, 15 lines, signed VB, addressed to Dear Miss Perkin. This letters mainly discusses VB's newest book "Selected Letters of Winifred Holtby and Vera Brittain". 18) Folded TLS, dated 17th January, 1967, in stamped envelope, addressed from 4, Whitehall Court, Westminster, S.W. 1, 9 lines, signed VB, addressed to Dear Dorothy Perkin.

        Another Time. Poems.

      New York: Random House,, 1940. Octavo. Original orange cloth, device to front board and titles to spine gilt. Spine rolled, an excellent copy in the jacket with toned spine, small chip to head of front panel and some nicks to extremities. First edition, first printing. This copy is annotated by Auden at the foot of each poem, noting the place and date of its composition, and is from the library of Caroline Newton, with her bookplate to the front pastedown. Caroline Newton (1893-1975), a rich psychiatrist, met Auden in the spring of 1940, appointing herself "a kind of patroness to him"; she quickly became infatuated, giving him gifts of money and expensive presents. This was a not infrequent occurrence for Auden, who "'had an amazing effect on women'" - particularly wealthy ladies, which his friends regarded with much amusement. In return for Newton's largesse, Auden would present her with original manuscripts. Auden seems to have found the relationship tiresome, and maintained the flirtation for largely financial reasons, possibly motivated by the burdensome expense of supporting Chester Kallman. Newton became the butt of jokes by Auden and his friends, who privately nicknamed her the "dog-lady" due to her love for the animal; in his letter of 30 July 1942, he writes of Newton that "ladies who were meant to be unselfish maiden-aunts should not read Freud". Their friendship was over by 20 December 1944, terminated by Auden before a poetry reading which she had organised; she was later referenced as the "huge sad lady" in his poem The Duet (1947). Laid-in is a torn slip of Newton's headed paper, with the address of her home, The Maypole in Berwyn. Auden was often invited there, and his 1942 poem, In War-Time, was written for her house-warming.

        Cutting continuity script for CITIZEN KANE

      N.p.: RKO Pictures, 1940. Mimeograph, 71 leaves, rectos only. Folio. Blue paper wrappers, stapled at top margin, final leaf and rear cover detached, front cover loose, some edgewear, front cover numbered in pencil, "257". Mimeograph, 71 leaves, rectos only. Folio. Citizen Kane Cutting Continuity Script. An early cutting continuity script of Citizen Kane, predating the final cutting continuity script of February 21, 1941 (reproduced in Kael, The Citizen Kane Book, 1971) but post-dating the film's cut down from 122 minutes to 119 mintues. This version differs in numerous small ways from the published one. The most significant discrepancy occurs in scene 17 - the glass snowglobe in the dying Kane's hand contains a "snow-covered house with snowmen surrounding it" in the published version, but in this version contains a "snow-covered sled" - an early reference to Kane's obsession. A scarce artifact from the production of a film that is overwhelmingly regarded as the greatest ever made. Provenance: probably Robert Asher (1915-1979), British film director, his handwritten time-sheet of a day at Elstree Studios dated "Thursday Oct 5/44" on the verso of the last leaf, in a custom half-morocco clamshell case

Buisman, 1940, op schutblad."Buisman 1833; Kleerkoper/Van Stockum pag. 279. De eerste druk van dit zeldzame boekje dateerde uit 1677 (adv. J.C. ten Hoorn in Amsterdamsche Courant 13-10-1677). De tweede druk, bij Jan ten Hoorn, verscheen in 1691. Deze derde druk is de enige die in de STCN wordt genoemd (één exemplaar: K.B.).$Behalve het vals spelen met kaarten, dat vooral in herbergen plaats vindt, behandelt de onbekende auteur (hij tekent het 'Aan den leezer' met N.N.) ook het recent aangevangen spel met drie 'ronde zilvere holle bolletjes of dopjes, hebbende de gedaante als een half doorgebrokene okkernoot' waar met een of twee ronde bolletjes van kurk mee gespeelt wordt. De derde variant van vals spelen geschiedt met een leren riem die rond wordt opgewonden en waarin een ijzeren priempje wordt gestoken. De omstanders moeten dan gokken of dit priempje bij loswinden van de riem los is of vast aan de riem zit. De laatste twee methoden komen vooral in trekschuiten voor. Het boek is oorspronkelijk Nederlands en bevat kostelijke verhalen hoe reizigers in Hollandse steden en onderweg bedrogen worden. Enkele verhalen zijn gedateerd (1673,1676). Aan het slot een aantal een aantal praktische 'lessen hoe men zich voor het valsch speelen zal konnen wachten'."

        [Manuscrits autographes inédits] "L'heure de choisir : civilisation humaniste ou coenolâtrie humanitaire ?" (1940) et trois textes sur "humanisme et humanitarisme"

      1940. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. In-4. A) "L'heure de choisir" : 15 pp. in-4, manuscrit signé, situé (Marlotte) et daté (4 janvier 1940) ; B) "Sur l'humanisme", 4 pp. 1/3 in-4 ; C) "Soyons humanistes", 2 1/2 pp. in-4 ; D) texte sans titre de 12 pp. in-4. Alors que la guerre fait rage et qu'il sent sa fin proche, le psychanalyste expose sa doctrine politique, très nettement maurrassienne : "Au moment où, avec les armées, les flottes et les escadrilles, se heurtent les idées et plus encore les conceptions morales, il n'est pas inutile d'essayer de déceler nettement, sous les nuances variées et les aspects multiformes que lui imposent les circonstances particulières, l'antagonisme foncier qui déchire l'humanité." L'opposition est selon lui entre d'une part "l'humanisme" (centré sur la personne) et "l'humanitarisme" (centré sur l'individu) d'autre part. "Les humanistes visent au bien de l'homme, les humanitaires à celui de l'humanité. La doctrine de l'Eglise, celle de Renan, celle de Barrès, celle de M. Maritain, celle de M. Maurras, celle de M. Bergson, celle aussi des anarchistes libertaires sont des doctrines humanistes ; M. Bernanos lui-même est, dans le sens où nous prenons ce terme qu'il renie, un humaniste. Au contraire la déclaration des Droits de l'Homme, le radicalisme à la Ferdinand Buisson, l'anti-capitalisme de Charles Marx, le national-socialisme de M. Adolphe Hitler sont des doctrines de l'ordre humanitaire." Les trois autres manuscrits sont des ébauches de ce long article. Le texte "Sur l'humanisme" est d'orientation plus monarchiste encore, et s'oppose violemment au "scientisme". Dans le plus long des textes, resté sans titre, Pichon parle plus en sa qualité de psychanalyste et expose ses idées (très conservatrices) sur l'éducation : "Nous psychanalystes et psychopédiatres savons maintenant de façon pertinente comment se développent les névroses et les états de révolte sociale". Il s'y oppose au "fameux bobard que le génie soit une névrose" et s'intéresse au cas de Baudelaire tel qu'analysé par Laforgue. Il évoque ensuite le "sentimental gauchard" qui "pleure presque s'il apprend qu'il y a 250 victimes dans un accident au fond de l'Oklahoma. C'est qu'il est bon, lui, nom de Dieu ! Mais nous, qu'il vient consulter pour sa psychasténie, pour ses obsessions, ou pour sa sexualité ratée, nous connaissons le revers de la médaille : nous savons qu'il n'aime si vastement, si compréhensivement que parce qu'il n'a pas un amour qui sache étreindre. Son soi-disant amour ne s'adresse pas au prochain, selon le précepte du Maître, mais à du lointain, à de l'abstrait, même si cet abstrait a figure présente." Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

Evidently officially compiled by the regional Luftschutzamt - Air Defence Organisation - the collection offers a highly-detailed visual record of the effects of the raids, each image also being accompanied by meticulous analysis, noting dates, precise location, type of ordnance, impact and effects, for example; "Raid of 10 August 1941 from 3 a.m. Köperstraße Oberhausen-Sterkrade, 850kg mine-bomb. Garden area behind the houses, 3 houses completely destroyed, 8 houses badly damaged, 29 houses substantially damage, and more than 100 houses with windows or roofs damaged. No fatalities, 22 wounded, of which the majority were in the shelter. Crater photographed from above. Particularly noteworthy is the perimeter of the crater"; and "Raid of 24 April 1943 - Incendiary. Mixture of phosphorus and magnesium-aluminium alloy incendiaries - Herz-Jesu-Kirche and surroundings. The vault was hit and the tower burnt out. View from the tower". The Ruhrchemie AG synthetic oil plant had made the area a key target during the bombing campaign against the Axis oil industries. The loosely inserted sketches expand on the verbal descriptions accompanying the photographs, offering diagrams detailing particular bomb strikes. The three incidents referred to are at the railway station at Mülheim, of which there are two photographic images; a strike on a bunker in the washrooms of Ruhrchemie, three images; and to a bunker on the premises of Die Gutehoffnungshütte foundry, five images. The album was looted during the invasion of Germany in 1945, an inscription on the front free endpaper reads:"The Ruhr 1945. Received this book during our occupation of Germany. They have had it, eh?".
