        DR. CYCLOPS

      Phoenix Press, Publishers [1940], New York - Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-255 [256: blank], original red cloth, front and spine stamped in black. Novelization of the 1940 film starring Albert Dekker as the ruthless and sadistic mad scientist in the Peruvian jungle who uses radioactivity to miniaturize living things, including a group of human beings who are reduced to one fifth of their natural size. "Not only is Dr. Cyclops a literate horror/sci-fi film with good animation and special effects; it is also filmed in Technicolor, something unheard of for such a low-budget film at that time." - Parish & Pitts, The Great Science Fiction Pictures, pp. 104-105. The novel, often attributed to, but not by, Henry Kuttner, was perhaps written by Alexander Samalman. Kuttner did write a shorter magazine version from the film script which was published in THRILLING WONDER STORIES, June 1940. A just about near fine copy, some age darkening to edges of paste-downs from aging glue, slight rubbing to spine ends and corners in a near fine dust jacket, mild shelf wear along upper edge, some glue residue from old jacket protector to verso of jacket along upper and lower edge.

        SIDUR HA-TEFILOT. HELEK 1: ROSH HA-SHANAH. HELEK 2: YOM HA-KIPURIM [PRAYER BOOK FOR NEW YEAR AND DAY OF ATONEMENT, 1940]

      Congregation Of The Central Promenade Camp]. 1940. Paperback. 1st edition. Later stiff binder with original covers bound in, 4to (legal size) , 34 pages. Original mimeograph High Holidays prayerbook for Reform German and Austrian Jewish refugees interned at the Central Promenade Camp on the Isle of Man. A reference to the prayerbook is made in the memoirs of former internee Gerald Friedman (online on his website, geraldfriedman-com/files/Internment_Gerald_Friedman-pdf) . ?"As Britain went to war in September 1939, there were around 80, 000 potential ?'enemy aliens?' in the country, that is, Germans and Austrians who might conceivably support Germany as spies. 55, 000 of these were refugees from Nazi Germany and most of them were Jewish…. First came the May 12th order to intern temporarily all German and Austrian males over sixteen and under sixty years old who were in the coastal regions of England and Scotland. A second order on May 16 ordered the internment of all category ?"B?" people — male and female — throughout the United Kingdom. And then, following the surrender of France to German forces on June 2, 1940, the British government interned most remaining adult males of enemy nationality from ages 16-70. Approximately 27, 000 people were interned: among them were German and Austrian artists, doctors, scientists, open opponents of the Nazi regime and even those who had lived in Britain since they were infants. Eighty percent of the refugees in England were Jewish…. Early in July [1940], ...a steamer took …internees to the Isle of Man…At the Isle of Man the internees realized they would no longer to be treated as civilians but instead as prisoners of war. ?" (judeninthemar-org 2014) . By the end of 1940 the number of ?"enemy aliens?" on the Isle of Man had reached 14, 000. Original owner?'s name and ?"House?" nr penciled on original cover, with later typed explanation tipped in inside later binding. Searching OCLC/Worldcat, British OPAC, and the library catalogs of the Wiener Library, the Imperial War Museum, the Manx National Heritage Library, and others, we could locate not a single surviving copy of this prayerbook. Nor could we locate a single copy having been every offered for sale at auction nor in the trade. Perhaps a unique surviving example of this important prayerbooks for Jewish internees as they considered their fate for the coming Jewish year. Light wear, Very Good Condition. (holo2-122-60) .

        General Ernst-Eberhard Hell World War II Diary FRANCE July 1940 to June 25, 1941 with many photos

      1940. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. 16cm x 18cm, hard cover album, 18pp of manuscript with 10 B&W photos (7.5cm x 4.5cm) affixed inside diary book and 16 B&W photos (10cm x 7cm) mounted to paper outside diary - 26 photos in all.FRANCE diary with photos of General Ernst-Eberhard Hell factually written about his World War II military posting. This album features maps and photographs with accompanying captions and texts and is devoted to a period spent in Burgundy, France in 1940-41. From the vocabulary and tone of these materials they are intended as personal records or mementos rather than official military memoirs. However, what makes these diaries of greater interest is the combination of the written personal reflections combined with the personal photos visually telling his war memoirs. Insightful personal memoirs and eye-witness accounts from his perspective, later written (we believe the diaries were written and put together by General Hell after he returned from Russian captivity of10 years, as he lived for almost 20 years after his release) of a highly decorated German General. The text is very neat and tidy as are the pasted-in photos which are unusual and appealing. Written in German with English translations for the two diaries available. Fine condition. Ernst-Eberhard Hell was a German general who held several divisional commands and was later elevated to Corps level during World War II. He was also a recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves. The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross and its higher grade Oak Leaves was awarded to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership. Ernst-Eberhard Hell was captured by Soviet troops in August 1944 during the Jassy-Kishinev Offensive (August 1944) and was held until 1955. Awards and decorations, Iron Cross (1914), 2nd Class (11 September 1914), 1st Class (14 August 1916), Eiserner Halbmond, Cross of Honor in 1934, Iron Cross (1939), 2nd Class (12 May 1940), 1st Class (17 May 1940), Eastern Front Medal, German Cross in Gold (14 June 1942), Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Knight's Cross on 1 February 1943 as General der Artillerie and commander of VII. Armeekorps, 400th Oak Leaves on 4 June 1944 as General der Artillerie and commander of VII. Armeekorps, Mentioned in the Wehrmachtbericht (12 March 1944) quoted from Wikipedia FRANCE DIARY & PHOTOS SUMMARY:The French album is titled: "With the Fifteenth Infantry Division in the Field. Reserve Period in Burgundy from July 1940 to June 25, 1941." It consists of photographs with headings and captions, a map of the sectors occupied by different German Divisions in Burgundy, and a list of officers and staff members in General Hell's Division. General Hell's Division apparently stayed for a significant period in the town of Commarin, where officers were headquartered in a chateau, which is shown in several photos (3644_26 to 30_LR). The building was organized with areas for leisure and socializing as well as offices, and was the scene of outdoor meals (see 3644_26_LR) and an outdoor marksmen's competition (3644_27_LR). One section of the album is devoted to photographs of training and other exercises (e.g. bridge construction and drills in river crossing) in which General Hell's soldiers were involved during this reserve period (3644_16_LR through 3644_19_LR). Monuments to German war dead are a recurring theme: German soldiers are seen erecting a memorial to the dead of the Franco-Prussian War in two pictures (3644_25_LR), while others show graves of earlier and recent German casualties (3644_21_LR, 3644_12_LR).Many of the photographs are a military tourist's souvenir photos from visits to Paris and to towns in Burgundy such as Beaune and Saulieu, as well as pictures of scenic landscape features (the Burgundy Canal, spring flowers, an overgrown forest). Other locations mentioned are Chateau Neuf (3644_24, 25 and 26_LR) , Chatillon sur Seine (3644_12_LR), and Alise (3644_10_LR) .In addition to a list of General Hell's subordinate officers (3644_01_LR) , officers from other units are mentioned on a few pages and appear in photos. These include Generals Wäger and Vlaskowitz (3644_18_LR) and Division Commander and Colonel Pavel [3644_20_LR]. It is clear from the sentimental title of one album section ("Special Memories") and the caption to one photograph ("We take along these pictures of Commarin in our memories" - [3644_30_LR]) that General Hell enjoyed this time in Burgundy. It appears he may have returned to the area at a later time: File (3644_35_LR) shows a card reading "bon Friedenstein Sommer 1960" and includes colour snapshots depicting the same scenes as the black and white photos mounted in the album.

No es ilícito considerar la publicada por Editorial Séneca como la primera edición de hecho de este poemario definitivo y desgarrador de César Vallejo. Desaparecida en la práctica la legendaria impresión hecha por los soldados republicanos del Ejército del Este, que supervisó Manuel Altolaguirre, la promovida y prologada por Juan Larrea en México es la primera que ve la luz en forma independiente, ya que el año anterior el texto había sido incluido en una edición de los “Poemas humanos” publicada en París. Se incluye aquí por primera vez el retrato de Vallejo por Pablo Picasso, que alcanzaría ulteriormente una gran celebridad. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

After service in the Pacific during WWII, Schoener served as an instructor, department chairman, and dean at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA. Schoener's other teaching assignments included Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Athens Technological Institute in Greece. Meanwhile, Schoener continued to use his Georgetown and then Robinhood homes Maine as a summer studio. Over the span of almost two decades, Schoener had several solo exhibitions at the Midtown Gallery on East 57th Street in New York City. His works are in many museum and private collections, including the Oakland Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York. He died in 1997. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Dago Red

      Viking Press, New York 1940 - B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ to Near Fine- condition and has a Very Good dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is a slight slant to the spine of the book. The text pages are clean and bright. The front endpaper has four spots of glue residue by the top edge. The rear endpaper has a square patch of glue residue where something (possibly a card pocket) was adhered and removed. The dust jacket is clean and bright, but has several edge tears, including a two inch semi-closed tear to the bottom front panel which has been repaired on the reverse with brown paper tape by a former owner. "From Fante's pages one learns what it means to be an Italian by emotion, as American by conviction. To be called a Wop, to take first communion, to steal a stick of candy, to stand at a child's grave, to bat out a three-base hit, to pummel a boy and kiss a girl." From Wikipedia: "Recurring themes in Fante's work are poverty, Catholicism, family life, Italian-American identity, sports and the writing life. Ask the Dust has been referred to over the years as a monumental Southern California/Los Angeles novel by a host of reputable sources (e.g.: Carey McWilliams, Charles Bukowski and The Los Angeles Times Book Review). More than sixty years after it was published, Ask the Dust appeared for several weeks on the New York Times' Best Sellers List." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1940 First edition, first printing. Publisher's coarse tan cloth, lettered in maroon; in the original first issue green dust jacket, with "Summer's Lease" to the rear flap, pictorial maroon and white letters to the front panel and spine. Book fine; unclipped dust jacket, with minor wear and a few tiny closed tears to the extremities, light rubbing to the rear panel, else bright and clean. Overall, a near fine and unsophisticated copy. Housed in a custom green slipcase, with a dark brown morocco label lettered in gilt to the spine, with matching chemise. Published when she was only twenty-three years old, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is McCullers' debut novel and was an instant success. It tells the story of six outcasts in a small town in Georgia. The novel centers on John Singer, a deaf-mute who finds himself alone after his best friend, also a deaf-mute, is sent away to an insane asylum. Singer's presence becomes the focus of four different misfits, including a musically talented tomboy, a soft-spoken diner owner, an idealist African-American doctor, and a violent social reformer who struggles with alcoholism. Each of the characters is burdened by a sense of moral isolation and finds a confidant in Singer, whose silence proves comforting. At the time of its publication, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter was revolutionary for its use of social outcasts as main characters and quickly became a best seller. Today, it remains an acclaimed modern novel and one of McCullers' most popular works.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        The War Speeches of the Right Hon. Winston Churchill, P.C. (Prime Minister of Great Britain): full set of all three First, Second, and Third Series wartime speech pamphlets

      Bombay: H. W. Smith at The Times of India Press, 1940. First edition, only printing. Pamphlets. Here we offer a quite rare three-pamphlet series of Winston Churchill wartime speech publications. Each is quite scarce individually and we have never seen another dealer offer all three in the series. These three are notably clean and complete, with the original illustrated covers fully intact. Most collectors know about the popular wartime Churchill speech pamphlets, such the HMSO pamphlet bearing "The Few" speech of August 20th, 1940. These are readily available and reasonably common, even if expensive. However, many other wartime Churchill speech pamphlets were produced, some of which are far more scarce, bibliographically notable, and hardly ever seen. This set is an example. During the early years of the Second World War the Times of India produced a series of three pamphlets. Each is a collection of Churchill speeches published in Bombay in 1940 and 1941, each measuring 7.125 x 4.75 inches and bound in wire-stitched paper wraps, with an iconic photo of Churchill on the front cover. The "First Series" features speeches spanning May 14th to July 14th 1940. The "Second Series" includes speeches spanning August 20th to November 21st 1940. The "Third Series" and final pamphlet features speeches spanning February 9th to August 24th, 1941. In addition to being rare, all three pamphlets are bibliographically significant. The "First Series" pamphlet is the first volume appearance of Churchill's House of Commons speech of 25 June 1940 regarding the fall of France. The "Second Series" pamphlet is the first volume appearance of the speeches of 5, 11, and 19 September, 8 October, and 9, 13, and 21 November 1940. These speeches from the first two pamphlets were subsequently collected in Into Battle. The "Third Series" pamphlet is the first volume appearance of the speeches of 9 April, 16 June, and 9, 14, and 15 July 1941. These speeches were subsequently collected in The Unrelenting Struggle. On most of the few occasions we have any of these pamphlets offered, they have either lacked the pictorial wraps or been crudely repaired. Each of these three pamphlets is fully intact, in very good or better condition. Condition of each closely matches, consistent with the fact that we acquired these three as a set with the representation that they had resided together in a collection for many years. The illustrated wraps remain complete and attached and the original binding staples are firmly intact, though the "Second Series" wraps are tender with small tears at the staples. The illustrated wraps show only mild soiling and no spotting. The contents of all three pamphlets remain bright. The sole previous ownership mark is two initials discretely inked on the First Series front cover verso. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A130, A135, and A154; Woods D(a)7(a), Woods D(a)7(b), and not found in Woods (Third Series).

        [Archive of original art]: Greeting Card Art featuring Anthropomorphic Animals and other subjects

      1940-1943. 19 different works on 18 leaves of white card stock (one has two images on one leaf). Various sizes (10" x 11", 14" x 10", and similar) in several different media, mostly airbrushed and/or pen and ink. Some modest smudging in the margins, one has a neat crease, mostly near fine. Two are color tempura, the rest are black and white. Unsigned but apparently by the same artist. Most are date-stamped on the verso between 1940 and 1943, and have printer's notations in the margins. Within the group there is a proliferation of ducks and bunnies, and other cute animals, as well as more traditional figures. Included are obvious Easter cards, get-well cards, wedding cards, Father's Day and Mother's Day cards, new arrivals birth cards, etc., as well as one including a man with a harem girl and a caricature of a black person. Another has a duck in a straw boater, with a detached arm holding binoculars: presumably the arm would have been printed, cut out, and pinned on as a moveable element. Exceptionally well accomplished. A charming collection .
