        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.

We've only seen only a half-dozen or so examples of this dust jacket in the last twenty years. As a first printing, THE BLACK STALLION is very hard to find, especially so unblemished. In original first issue DJ? You might wait years for another copy. THE BLACK STALLION, written by a remarkable young man in his early 20s, has sold tens of millions of copies over the last seven decades. The fine 1979 film adaptation of THE BLACK STALLION won several Oscar nominations. This is a chance to acquire a special copy of the enduring and endearing book which gave birth to what the New York Times called "the most famous fictional horse of the [20th] century." . Signed.

        Short Stories of De Maupassant

      GARDEN CITY N.Y.: Book League of America, 1941 This Edition is for the true collectors of first editionsBook League of America printed and published contemporary and classic books. The clothbound hardcover was commonly a "dark navy-blue", though sometimes red or black. There was an "embossed logo" on the front. Depending upon a variety of exposure conditions and perhaps publishing years, the spine cloth faded differently, with some of the spines remaining dark navy, while others turned purple or navy-green. The spine featured book title and author in gold or silver gilt lettering, along with decorative scrolling, sometimes in an art deco motif.Most of the pages were smooth-cut on the top and bottom edges, and deckled on the outer edge. Some books contained the note: "This book is standard length, complete and unabridged. Manufactured under wartime conditions in conformity with all government regulations controlling the use of paper and other materials." This explains the "yellowed or tanning paper condition", more noticeable in some books than others. Some books were illustrated. Many of the books did not include a publish date.

      Bourke-White, Margaret. Silver chloride photograph (4 x 5 1/2 inches) of Bourke-White and Erskine Caldwell each in Russian fur hats, beneath a sign stating "MIND YOUR HEAD." The photo is mounted on the front of a folded card stock with this printed caption "...your heart, and your pocketbook," White Sea, 1941. The inside of the card reads "1942, Horseplay Hill, Darien, Connecticut." Slightest of foxing on card, else very good; the photo is bright. A well known self-portrait by Bourke-White, made aboard ship after leaving the Soviet Union in 1941. Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bourke-White and Caldwell decided to separate with Caldwell going to Hollywood and Bourke-White joining the war effort; they divorced in 1942. The photo is reproduced on p. 187 of Bourke-White's PORTRAIT OF MYSELF, but the printed legend on this card is unique - given the sarcastic tone, it is presumed that Bourke-White sent this card to her intimates to announce her divorce.

      Inter-American Jewish Conference. 1941. Paperback. 1st edition. Original paper wrappers. 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. Markings on endpaper, title page, and back wrapper. Very Good Condition thus. An important collection of evidence from the period. (Holo2-120-27A) .
