        PRESS RELEASES OF THE INDEPENDENT JEWISH PRESS SERVICE, INC OCTOBER-DECEMBER, 1941

      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.

        THE BLACK STALLION (True First Printing in Original First Printing Dust Jacket)

      New York: Random House, 1941. Farley, Walter. THE BLACK STALLION. New York: Random House, 1941. Illustrations by Keith Ward. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (so stated). The book itself is in fine bright condition without wear or finger-soiling; you might find an equal copy but you won't find one better. Clearly protected by a dust jacket the last 75 years. The endpapers are a little browned but the pages themselves are still white and fresh. The exceedingly rare first issue dust jacket, on the other hand, is spine-faded and has some chips, stains, creases, and has been trimmed. That said, it is the original and genuine first printing DJ with all the accurate first issue points including the five correct book titles on the back panel and the original unclipped $1.75 price. 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. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Keith Ward.

        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. Dust jackets were not included.Stories include: Ball-of-Fat; The Necklace; The Piece of String; The story of a Farm Girl; In The Moonlight; Madame Tellier's Excursion; Love; Mademoiselle fifi; Monsieur Parent; Useless Beauty; An Affair of State; Babette; A Cock Crowed; Lilie Lala; A Vagabond; The Mountebanks; Ugly; The Debt; A Normandy Joke; the Father; The Artist; False Alarm; That Pig of a Morin; Miss Harriet; The Hole; the Inn; A Family; Bellflower; In The Wood; The Marquis de Fumerol; Saved; The Gignal; the Devil; The Venus of Braniza; The Rabbit; La Morillone; Epiphany; Simon's Papa; Waiter, A Bock!; The Sequel to a Divorce; The Clown; The Mad Woman; Mademoiselle; A Bad Error; The Port; Chali; Jeroboam, Virtue in the Ballet; The Double Pins; How he Got the Legion of Honor; A Crisis.FIRST PRINTING Spine is Tight & Crisp.

        MIND YOUR HEAD ORIGINAL PHOTO OF ERSKINE CALDWELL AND MARGARET BOURKE-WHITE

      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.

        JEWS IN NAZI EUROPE, FEBRUARY 1933 TO NOVEMBER 1941: A STUDY PREPARED BY THE INSTITUTE OF JEWISH AFFAIRS, SUBMITTED TO THE INTER-AMERICAN JEWISH CONFERENCE, NOVEMBER 23-24-25, 1941, BALTIMORE, MD.

      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) .

        La Topographie Legendaire Des Evangiles En Terre Sainte (inscribed by Halbwachs) // The Legendary Topography of the Holy Land // On Collective Memory

      Paris: Presses Universitaires de France, 1941. First edition. Paperback. Very Good. True first edition, inscribed by Halbwachs to a Sorbonne colleague, philosopher Rene Le Senne. Halbwachs was later taken by the Nazis and died at Buchenwald in 1945. Halbwachs' death is described in Jorge Semprun's harrowing account of the concentration camp. Halbwachs first studied philosophy with Henri Bergson, but later became Emile Durkheim's most important student. The Legendary Topography is his masterpiece, one of the truly great works of European sociology. The book is by far the most sophisticated discussion of how the monuments we see in the Holy Land were created by humans looking for the sacred. Halbwachs reaches an intellectually elegant and humane conclusion about the shrines of the Holy Land: "These are not traces of a human or supernatural individual but rather of groups animated by a collective faith that remains moving even if one does not really know its true nature." The first edition is rare and inscribed copies are nearly impossble. Book is clean throughout, paper loss at the base of the spine (just clipping off "de France" at the bottom of the publisher's information), still very good.

        Black Lamb and Grey Falcon, A Journey Through Yugoslavia

      New York: Viking Press, 1941. First American Edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. Two volumes in original black cloth with mounted paper labels, original dust jackets and slipcase. An exceptionally fine set in all respects, with the only flaws being some minimal rubbing to the top edge of the jacket of Volume 2 and some light wear (one small split) to the slipcase. West's most celebrated work, named one of the Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the 20th Century. Aiming "to show the past side by side with the present it created," it is a travelogue, history, and ethnography combined. In a contemporary review, The New York Times called the work a "brilliant mosaic of Yugoslavian travel," commenting that "as travel book it is unique. In two almost incredibly full-packed volumes one of the most gifted and searching of modern English novelists and critics has produced not only the magnification and intensification of the travel book form, but, one may say, its apotheosis. Rebecca West's "Journey Through Yugoslavia" is carried out with tireless percipience, nourished from almost bewildering erudition, chronicled with a thoughtfulness itself fervent and poetic; and it explores the many-faceted being of Yugoslavia -- its cities and villages, its history and ancient custom, its people and its soul, its meaning in our world.

This is one of the high-quality lithographs created to be part of a set of the plates in portfolio. Fine condition.Many of the Hirschfeld images in Harlem have become iconic representations of the African-American experience in the 1930s and are considered by many to be the artist's best work. Just before he died at age 99 in 2003, Hirschfeld wrote: ""I have lived almost my whole life on the outskirts of Harlem … Harlem was as familiar and as accessible to me as the blocks around your house are to you, or the fields around your homestead, or the ice floes around your igloo.""

        "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.
