      New York, Institute Of Jewish Affairs. ; American Jewish Congress. ; Inter-American Jewish Conference, 1941. 1st edition, Later cloth with original wrappers bound in, 4to, approximately 200 leaves. 28 1/2cm. "Published ... Under the auspices of the American Jewish congress. "-- Foreword. Collection of detailed reports on the Jewish persuctions as of late 1941 throughout Europe, and organized by region, with anecdotal as well as statistical evidence and sources cited. The report came out just 2 months before the notorious Wansee Conference where German extermination policy became official, and the reports here, in detail and in in broad brush stroakes, reflect the quickly deteriorating situation for Jews under German occupation. For example from the Polish section: ?We must declare at the very outset that words are powerless to portray the agony and suffering of Polish Jewry in the 80 days of Germany role. The hell-like reality of the Polish Jews, a hell-like reality which has already lasted more than 80o days, and where literally every minute, every second demands Jewish victims, without a stop, without any interruption, and the hand of the torturer and murderer, the robber and offender is still unwearied, --this reality is not to he described in words. Let the reader multiply what is described tenfold, twentyfold, and he will perhaps come near to an idea of the life of our brothers under the German lash? (p. POL-9) Sections include: Greater Germany, Rumania, Hungary, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxemburg, Holland, France, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Greece, Finland, Nazi-Soviet War Area, Refugees, Relief, & Conclusions. ?Prepared by the Institute of Jewish Affairs ; submitted to the Inter-American Jewish Conference, November 23-24-25, 1941, Baltimore, Md. ? Includes refugee and relief activity at conclusion, and 2 pages of corrections and addenda at rear. Even at this date, of course, the nature of the what was to be the total devastation was not yet clear. Very Good Condition. Rare. With original hole punches, as issued. Ex-library, but only one stamp on original pages, to blank rear of title page. Other markings are only to later-added endpapers and binding, not to any original pages, Very Good Condition thus. An important collection of evidence from the period. (Holo2-120-27)

        [German soldier's photograph album of service with a Flak unit in occupied Norway.]

      Rhineland & Norway: 1938-, 1941. Quarto photograph album (230 x 185 mm). Contemporary sheep-backed marbled boards, spine ruled in gilt. 272 original photographs (various sizes, from approx. 60 x 45 to 80 x 130 mm, both gloss and matt, and mostly deckle- or wavy-edged) and 4 professional photographs or postcards (of which one full-page, depicting an 8.8 cm Flak gun), all mounted on 30 black thick card leaves with tissue guards, neatly captioned and dated throughout in white grease-pencil. Occasional inked arrows indicating the compiler of the album in group photographs. A little rubbing and wear to board-edges and tips, photographs occasionally lifting slightly at edges, a very small number toned or slightly marked, a few tissue-guards loose, but excellent condition overall, the images overall very well preserved indeed, retaining their sharp tonal contrasts. A superbly presented and exhaustively (often humorously) captioned album of original photographs compiled by a young member of a German Flak unit posted to Norway in May 1940, shortly after the invasion. The first few photographs record his initial service in the Reichsarbeitsdienst, Abteilung 215, "W" company, from 4 April to 25 October 1938. In December he appears to have been transferred to the Düsseldorf Flak-Kaserne, and then the Münsterlager training camp. From this period there are several photographs of training exercises and troop movements, forming an excellent overview of German hardware including a manned 2 cm Flak gun. The soldier's unit appears to have been very mobile in the months leading up to war, with detachments to Stolpmünde (now Ustka, on the Polish coast) and across north-west Germany. One leaf, dated 25 August 1939 is emphatically marked "Krieg"). This was the day that Hitler closes all telecommunications beyond borders and warned Mussolini that war with Poland was imminent, before receiving news of the Anglo-Polish Treaty. The next sequence of images include a number of posed photographs comprising members of the soldier's unit in Leverkusen, where he spent the winter. This is followed by an unsurprising Phoney War lacuna; the next dated photographs depict the mobilisation to Norway in early May 1940, in the midst of the German invasion which had begun in April, one caption reading "Denn wir fahren gegen Engeland [sic]". There are sharp photographs of German destroyers and of various preparations including the loading of Flak guns onto cargo ships at Swinemünde (now Swinoujscie). The soldier's unit arrives in Oslo on 12 May, the city already occupied, and the soldier himself declaring it "die Stadt mit dem grossen Herzen!" He is then sent to Sandvika on 21 May, before transferring a week later to Trondheim. The striking photographs from this period depict an array of views, German armour and anti-aircraft guns, bombed-out vehicles and bridges, downed Norwegian fighter planes, Norwegian prisoners, and most notably General Nikolaus von Falkenhorst, ground commander of the invasion, looking over a bridge. The next placement appears to have been more casually spent in fine weather at nearby Værnes, though there is a superb image of General Kitzinger inspecting a Flak emplacement among the images of landscapes and soldierly recreation. This is followed by a dramatic series of photographs illustrating the extent of the destruction at Narvik, with buildings and transporter ships destroyed or in flames. There are also up-close images of the wreckages of German destroyers, Juncker 55s and Heinkel 111s, and an excellent image of Fallschirmjäger in descent. With Narvik apparently won, or nearly so, the soldier's unit then appears to have travelled northward into the fjords. There is a series of arresting landscapes, and a photograph of the town of Bodö, which was largely destroyed by German action on 27 May 1940. Allied forces surrendered on 10 June, and aside from some images of Stukas and Juncker 87s in flight, portrays the comparatively easy life of soldiers in pacified territory: an unidentified winter landscape is captioned "unser Heim", and there are photographs of raucous Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations, and soldiers skiing. The final leaf in the album is dated 1 May 1941.

        Very Large Vintage Photograph of Winston Churchill watching a Stirling Bomber take Off, RAF Warboys, 6 June 1941

      War Office, Cambridgeshire/ Huntingtonshire 1941 - (70x40cm) Very large oblong vintage silver gelatin photograph of Winston Churchill walking towards a Stirling Bomber which was being piloted by Captain Gerry Blacklock on 6 June 1941 at RAF Warboys in Huntingdonshire. Blacklock was the RAF's first Stirling Captain and the image was taken by the War Office's official photographer Captain William G Horton at the inception of Bomber Command's campaign against German cities; a few minutes after this photograph was taken Horton recorded the arrival of the first Flying Fortress bomber from the United States. Despite its simplicity the image has a peculiar dynamism on account of Churchill's walking movement towards the plane which is actually in the act of taking off with its tail wheel already off the ground. The image is in very good condition and probably dates from shortly after the war ended. It is mounted on its original board with some scuffing, now matted to conceal an apparent signature of Churchill which after expert examination has been deemed to be a later addition and definitely not in Churchill's hand. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like any information about this photograph.

        Aminadab. Manuscrit original

      S.n, 1941. - S.n., S.l. s.d. (ca. 1941), 13,5x21cm, en feuilles. - set di fogli dattiloscritti e manoscritti di Thomas the Obscure con molte correzioni e molte pagine di difetti possono essere causa di tagli dell'autore. (?). - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] « Tout récit qui ne se contente pas de visées réalistes exige un sens secret dont la lente mise au jour est liée aux péripéties de la narration. Si le sens correspond sans ambiguïté à l'anecdote, mais peut aussi être exprimé complètement en dehors d'elle, c'est une allégorie. Si au contraire, il ne peut être saisi qu'à travers la fiction et se dissipe dès qu'on cherche à le comprendre pour lui - même, c'est un symbole. [...] Le sens d'une histoire, c'est l'histoire elle - même. Elle semble mystérieuse, parce qu'elle dit tout de ce qui justement ne supporte pas d'être dit. » (Prière d'insérer d'Aminadab, octobre 1942)   Manuscrit complet abondamment corrigé du second roman de Maurice Blanchot, Aminadab, qui paraît en 1942, un an après Thomas l'Obscur dont il constitue une forme de suite. Le manuscrit d'Aminadab comporte 348 feuillets numérotés écrits au recto. Par intervalles on trouve une feuille ou une demi - feuille intercalée entre deux pages dont elle constitue généralement un brouillon ou une refonte partielle. On assiste ainsi au processus même par lequel l'écriture de ce roman a atteint son état définitif. Lors de ce processus, Aminadab subit une véritable cure d'amaigrissement. Il n'y a pas une page du manuscrit qui ne présente des remaniements et des coupes pouvant aller jusqu'à une dizaine de lignes. La version manuscrite est donc beaucoup plus étoffée que la version finale.   De nombreux aspects de la narration dite « réaliste » sont systématiquement éliminés, comme si Blanchot cherchait constamment à épurer sa vision narrative. Mais, plus qu'un allègement, ces coupes témoignent d'une transformation décisive de la volonté auctoriale au cours de l'écriture. Est - ce la tentation allégorique (évoquée dans le prière d'insérer) que Blanchot affronte et dont il décide de faire l'économie par ces coupes ? Ainsi, au début du roman, la jaquette que revêt Thomas et dont, dans la version publiée, il apprécie simplement l'élégance se sentant « à peine gêné par les entournures trop étroites des manches » dans la version publiée, bénéficie d'un traitement que l'on ne saurait qualifier de simple réalisme descriptif dans la version manuscrite : « Il était [...] assez curieux de voir si le gardien ne serait pas surpris de la bonne tenue de ce nouveau costume. [...] Sans se contenter de l'admirer de loin, [le gardien] voulut tâter l'étoffe, passer la main sur le revers de l'habit qu'il lissa doucement. Les plis surtout l'enchantaient. Il aurait aimé qu'il y en eût partout, Thomas dut se fâcher pour l'arracher à cette curiosité et l'empêcher de changer l'ordre des boutons qui fermaient le gilet. » Blanchot élimine également systématiquement le réalisme psychologique qui imprègne le manuscrit, en adoptant vis - à - vis de sa propre écriture la sévérité dont Thomas vient de faire preuve à l'égard du gardien. En effet, dans le manuscrit, Thomas (comme d'ailleurs le gardien, réduit ensuite à l'état de simple figurant), fait preuve de sentiments, états d'âmes, calculs et réflexions inspirés par sa situation aporétique.  Autant d'éléments systématiquement raccourcis ou éliminés dans le roman final. Psychologie et Raisonnement sont ainsi deux composantes importantes du manuscrit primitif et leur suppression systématique marque une étape significative de la conception romanesque de Blanchot. C'est enfin l'enjeu même de ce roman - raconter ce qui dans tout acte de raconter empêche qu'on prononce jamais le mot de la fin - qui est mis à l'épreuve dans ce manuscrit. Blanchot doit ainsi « dompter» l'inépuisable quantité de narration engendrée par cette recherche de l'épuisement du dire. Les coupes faites par Blanchot dans la version manuscrite exposent très clairement le choix de l'auteur de sacrifier des scènes et des personnages qui pourraient figurer dans le roman mais qui doivent être réduits ou éliminés pour que celui - ci ne s'étale pas indéfiniment sans jamais se rapprocher de son but. Ce but, qui n'est rien moins qu'une sorte de cogito narratif, occupera Blanchot jusqu'à la fin de sa vie d'écrivain.   Ces 348 feuillets, où ratures, reprises, ajouts et divers signes diacritiques suspendant la décision ("...", ou "x...x", ou " - - - ") montrent un auteur en constant dialogue avec lui - même, sont plus qu'une trace de la création, ils constituent l'acte d'écriture même.   Abîme de sa propre narration, ce manuscrit d'Aminadab est semblable au bâtiment labyrinthique dans lequel Thomas s'enfonce. Comme son héros avec les personnages qu'il rencontre, l'auteur semble interroger les situations et les personnages qu'il crée « pour savoir où il est, qui ils sont, et plus généralement comment tout cela va finir » (Michaël Holland in Maurice Blanchot, Archives de la fratrie, catalogue raisonné).

        Heute gehört uns Deutschland | Today, Germany is ours; | Morgen die ganze Welt!" | Tomorrow, the whole world. | OH, YEAH"? (poster)

      U. S. Government Printing Office, 1941 - Poster. Halftone printed in black, olive green, and red on uncoated off-white paper. 19.7 x 15.9 in. / 50 x 40.4 cm. Verso blank. Formerly folded. This very early World War II propaganda poster depicts a hideous quintet of helmeted Nazi soldiers with wild eyes and filed teeth singing from sheet music against a bright red background. The original German text to the song appears above in olive green in modernized German Gothic type; the interlinear English translation is in black. The rejoinder, below, is in large, italic sans-serif capitals. Only one copy located, at Northwestern University. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 7, 1941, the US declared war on Monday, the 8th. Isolationist opposition to US involvement in the European war crumbled on Thursday, the 11th, when both Germany and Italy declared war on us, and America returned the favor. Until then, we had been a neutral nation, ostensibly, though Roosevelt’s invention of Lend Lease to provide war matériel to the Allies was anything but neutral. It is almost inconceivable that this inflammatory design could have been used publicly by the War Department before hostilities began. It must have been created within the first three weeks of the war and published shortly thereafter. The poster was folded, but it has been cleaned and flattened professionally. A few pale marginal stains remain, but it is a fresh and harrowing image.

        Never Give a Sucker an Even Break [The Great Man] (Original screenplay for the 1941 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1941. Draft script for the 1941 film, here under the working title %The Great Man,% with holograph annotations on nearly every page. W.C. Fields' last starring film before his death in 1946. Told as a "real life" film starring Fields as himself, "Never Give a Sucker an Even Break" is an off-beat and slightly bizarre spoof on the Hollywood and filmmaking industry of Fields' time. The film doesn't quite follow a storyline, and is instead intentionally riddled with inconsistencies, forgotten characters, and wacky plot holes. Light blue titled wrappers. Title page integral with the first page of text, with credits for screenwriters John T. Neville, Prescott Chaplin, and Fred Cribblecobbis (W.C. Fields pseudonym). 156 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 156. Typescript on onionskin stock. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine bound internally with two gold brads.

      The Independent Jewish Press Service, Inc, New York. 1941. Paperback. 1st Edition. Original Stapled Wrappers. Folio. 161 Issues between October 3rd and December 30th, [about 864 pages]; 36 cm. Of tremendous historical importance. These 161 American press releases from before and after US involvement in World War II contain detailed day-to-day reporting on the ongoing Holocaust atrocities and were distributed in America. A November 17th 1941 article entitled, ?Polish Jews Advertise Own Execution? describes a gruesome scene in the Fort VII concentration camp. ?Having been forced to wear large posters on their backs with the following notice in German? ?I shall be hung tomorrow at eleven o?clock? three Jews were hanged in by the Nazis in Poznan? one? for having stolen a piece of bread, the other two for illegally possessing honey?. Their execution was watched by all the Jews from the camp gathered at the athletic stadium of Poznan. ? Dozen of reports like this one throughout. Titles include, ?Nazis Plan to Mobilize Jews for War, ?800, 000 Jews in Hungary, ? ?95 Jewish Hostages Slain, 5 Others Reprieved, ? ?70, 000 More Jews For Warsaw Ghetto, ? ?Nazis Distribute Anti-Jewish Placards in Ukrainia, ? ?Hitler ?Black Book? To Blame Jews for US Axis War, ? ?Mass Arrests of Rumanian Jews, ? ?Nazi Paper Demands Abolition of Riga Ghetto, ? ??Reports 7, 000 Jewish Businesses ?Liquidated. ? In Slovakia, ? ?More Jewish Girls Abducted and Forced into Prostitution, ? ?Nazis to Enlarge Lemberg (Lwow) Ghetto, ? and ?Slovak Jews Can?t Use Phones. ? Other reports detail stories of Jewish resistance. One resistance article tells an almost midrashic story about Gestapo who raid a Jewish home and find a notebook. They turn to the first page and read, ??God preserve Adolf Hitler?? Astonished, one of the Gestapo said: What a strange Jew! So patriotic despite all persecution?? He turned the page? ?God preserve Joseph Goebbels?? Looked at page 3, which said, ?God preserve Heinrich Himmler?? We must make this fellow an Honorary Aryan, the Gestapo burst out in unison. Then they turned to page 5. On it was written: ?God Preserve Ernst Roehm?? below this was the penciled note: ?Preserved ? June 30th, 1934.? Other resistance titles include, ?Jewish Workers Wrecked Homes Nazis Hoped to Occupy, ? and ?Mein Kampf Burned on Pulpit. ? The releases also include many many contemporary reports on American Jewish Culture, Palestinian Settlement, and refugee resettlement in Palestine, the US, and Latin America, including habitual updates on Ships of Jewish refugees landing and being turned away from the Americas. Releases also include Pearl Harbor Attack, and the first month of US Involvement in World War II including articles on Jewish Soldiers relieving the duties of Non-Jewish soldiers. Other titles on this topic include ?Former Pacifist, Albert Einstein Says, ?Strike Hard, ?? and ?Gun for Greenberg, ? on Hank Greenberg?s decision to enlist. Lastly, includes several original printings of articles by very notable Americans including the first appearance of ?The Jew Needs Normality? by Dorothy Thompson. OCLC lists no holdings anywhere. A colleague of ours offers a much smaller collection, one-fifth the size of this one, from before US entry in the war for over USD 5700. Some of the releases are chipping. In Fair to Good condition.
