        Two Typed Letters, Signed, and one Autograph Postcard, Signed, to Lyn Lloyd Newman.

      Washington, D.C. and Firle, , 1941-1955. Two folded type written letters, on headed note paper of The Mayflower, Washington, D. C. two pages and one page respectively, 20 and 12 lines, approximately 130 and 80 words, with autograph amendments, signed by J. M. Keynes. The postcard 3 lines long, approximately 15 words, signed by Lydia. Small ink blot to head of second letter, folded for mailing; in very good condition. Two letters written by Keynes to Lyn Lloyd Irvine, Journalist and Writer, husband of the Bletchley Park mathematician Max Newman, hoping to meet whilst in America, but noting "My visit to this country is meant to be as short as possible and, as I have come on a definite job, that is what I must attend to. In the main I shall be here in Washington. But I shall be spending some days in New York before we go back. So shall I let you know a little later on? If I can come to Princeton, all the better.". In the second letter he announces a planned visit to Princeton "to stop with Walter Stewart" but adds that Lydia will not be accompanying him: "If you really can face the journey to Washington, she says she would be more than delighted to see you here for lunch, almost any day in the near future, except the 27th and the 30th." The post card, written some 12 years later, has Lydia declining a meeting: "So sorry my dear, I am too far tucked away, and lazy. Love, Lydia Keynes". In 1941 Keynes was in Washington on the first of several important visits to America, making arrangements for Lend-Lease and explaining in detail Britain's financial predicament after two years of war.

The work was created by Willard B. Golovin, an interesting figure in advertising history. In addition to being an advertising executive (other clients included Harry Winston), he was a poet, painter, photographer and director of the Bayer Art Gallery in New York. A rare group of these fascinating volumes issued in editions of 750 copies.

      1941,1944,1946,1950, 1941. Four letters on varying letterheads (The Admiralty, South East Asia Command Headquarters etc.) From Admiral Lord Mountbatten to novelist and historian C.S. Forester thnking him for various books sent, commenting on the undesirability of a Mountbatten biography (no matter who wrote it) and correcting many of Forester's naval terms, slang, ranks etc. It appears from the length and enthusiasm of the correspondance that Mountbatten had a tremendous respect and liking for Forester and admired his work greatly. Also present are two pieces of correspondance from Robert Lusty of Michael Joseph Publishers recounting the acknowledgement of a package of Forester books by Winston Churchill.

        Aminadab. Manuscrit original

      S.n. 1941 - - S.n., S.l. s.d. (ca. 1941), 13,5x21cm, en feuilles. - « 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 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Journal]: Notes on the Period of August and September 1939 at the Start of the European War of 1939

      (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) 1941 - Small black three-ring binder. Quarto. Binding is very good with wear to the edges and the bottom front joints starting. Contents very good with reading wear at the ring holes and some modest toning and offsetting. Contains roughly 350 densely-typed pages, both recto and verso, with occasional ephemera mounted throughout. More than 150,000 words, and appears complete. An extraordinary vernacular history of the outbreak of World War II. Though the title page suggests a diary covering only a brief period, the project seems to have quickly outgrown Bacon's original intentions. From the German invasion of Poland (September 1, 1939) through the bombing of Pearl Harbor, for more than two years Bacon records the latest news and developments from Europe and elsewhere.Summarizing (and sometimes transcribing) both radio reports and newspaper headlines, Bacon writes clearly and with a strong narrative, often deftly juggling multiple developments throughout the world. Bacon's father appears to have been a prominent Quaker from the Philadelphia area, which may account for his obsession with the war. He attended Haverford College from 1920-23. Curiously, the Haverford yearbook contains this remembrance of Bacon: "[B]y no means the least marvelous of his accomplishments is his uncanny ability to sit down at a typewriter and tear off unlimited numbers of theses at the terrific rate of nearly a thousand words per hour."An intriguing day-to-day account of the war by a Philadelphia pacifist.

      McCLOSKEY, ROBERT. McCLOSKEY,ROBERT. MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS. NY:Viking / Junior Literary Guild 1941 (1st published August 1941). 4to, rust colored cloth with picture of a duck in lower right corner, bottom edge rubbed and the inevitable and always present offset on endpapers from binding else VG+ in dust wrapper with price intact, with no award medal and with no mention of the Junior Literary Guild. (Jacket has 1/4" piece off spine ends and corners, fraying with some closed tears on bottom edge, rough at crease). 1st edition, CALDECOTT AWARD WINNER. [A word of explanation about the Junior Literary Guild: The Junior Literary Guild was created in 1929 as a literary book club for children. It prided itself in often selecting the best award winning books before publication. This is most likely due to its editorial board that included amongst others Carl Van Doren and Eleanor Roosevelt who was an active member of the board. Unlike other book clubs that offered cheap reprints, the Guild books used first edition sheets with the only changes being different binding color and the inclusion of the words "Junior Lit. Guild" on the title page and spine. Because they are in fact first editions, Guild books are almost as valuable as the Viking copies but they can sell for a bit less]. Because every child who read this book, read it to death, first editions in dust wrappers are notoriously rare, and ardently sought after. This one is a prize. See Bader p. 155-6.

        Soviet propaganda poster - Great Patriotic War, TASS, c. 1945.

      Soviet propaganda poster - OUR JUST CAUSE! WE HAVE CONQUERED - (TASS No 1254)Medal showing Stalin bearing same inscription as the caption"The medal of a holy and just war!To wear it is a great honour:There is part of the motherland in it,There is a reflection of national glory in it."Author: V. Lebedev Kumach. Artist: V. Ladyagin. Dimensions: 177 x 86 cm.The major role in Soviet poster art in the war was played by the TASS Windows. They were large, brightly coloured, hand-painted posters, stencilled and produced in runs of up to 1000 copies. They usually were accompanied by a didactic text or often quite lengthy poem. They were the direct descendants of the comparable ROSTA Windows of the Civil War period, so-called because they were displayed in the empty shop-windows of that period. Like ROSTA, TASS was the official Soviet telegraphic agency of the day, and the purpose of the association of this propaganda effort with the agency was both to provide a continuing visual chronicle of the war and to respond immediately, often within hours to the latest telegrams of TASS. M M Chermnykh, who had initiated the ROSTA Windows, also took the lead in the 1941 project. On 24 June the organisational committee of the Union of Soviet Artists established the TASS Window collective and the first poster appeared already on 27 June 1941. The Windows were numbered through to no. 1485 in June 1945. About 1250 were made in the original manner with stencils during the war itself.The theme and the text of each TASS Window were agreed with the leader of the collective, and ultimately with the agreement of TASS. TASS was the official news agency for dissemination of Soviet news abroad and for reception of news from abroad and consequently was strictly controlled by the Party. Most posters were completed and reproduced within 24 hours, the team working in three shifts. After the artist had completed the drawing and painting of the illustration, the poster was cut up into sections and stencils were cut out appropriate to each colour used in the composition. The most elaborate posters used up to 60 stencils. The stencils were then passed to the copy room where each section was copied on a lithographic machine in waterproof oil colours, initially in very few copies but eventually in up to 1000 copies. When all the colours had been applied to each stencilled section, they had to be glued together to make the completed poster and the text was added in a separate operation.The Hallward Library of the University of Nottingham holds a large collection of TASS Posters. For more information, the collection is described in detail here. Price: € 2.500,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

        Triad and Tabut.

      Singapore: Printed at the Government Printing Office, , 1941 (1957). A survey of the origin and diffusion of Chinese and Mohamedan Secret Societies in the Malay Peninsula A. D. 1800-1935. 2 parts bound as one, folio (340 x 215 mm). Contemporary green quarter calf, gilt lettered spine, green cloth sides. Light wear to spine. A very good copy. First and only edition of this fascinating and detailed history of Malay secret societies, published as "confidential for authorised issue only". Although well represented institutionally (Copac locates 16 complete copies in British and Irish institutional libraries, OCLC around two dozen worldwide), it is uncommon commercially. The Foreword to Part I (dated 1957) is by the former colonial secretary for Singapore, W. L. Blythe, who writes "the author had hoped to continue his work by a more detailed analysis of the activities of particular societies in Malaya, but owing to the Japanese occupation of Malaya during which he died, this was never completed. Wynne wrote at a time when Chinese Secret Society activity was just about at its lowest ebb in Malaya. For years there had been few prosecutions of persons for comparative study and of members and officials of such societies who could be interrogated". He then adds that "as the material contained in this book may be of interest and use to a wider group of research workers, permission has been given by the Governments of the Federation of Malaya and the Colony of Singapore for the issue of such copies as still remain, to libraries and centres of learning"; to which a pencilled marginal note adds: "partly true". There are a number of pencilled marginal notes clearly by someone familiar with the subject. A publisher's note at the end of the Foreword states that "throughout this work, references will be found to various Appendices, but these did not survive the Japanese occupation of Malaya. There are also references to 'Part II' and to chapters numbered from XXII onwards. These concern the projected second part of this work which was planned and partly written but was unfinished at the time of the Japanese occupation". Part II, present here, is often absent. Mervyn Llewelyn Wynne (c.1891-1942) was a Dublin-born officer with the Malayan Police, who had been deputy inspector general Straits Settlements Police Force, after serving with the Rifle Brigade (Prince Consort's Own) 1914-1922; he died in internment at Sumatra. Triad and Tabut was issued at the height of what the British refer to as the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960) when Commonwealth armed forces fought a protracted guerilla war against the Malayan National Liberation Army; it is quoted extensively in Anoma Pieris, Hidden Hands and Divided Landscapes: a penal history of Singapore's plural society, 2009.

        New Year Letter.

      London: Faber and Faber,, 1941. Octavo. Original grey cloth, spine lettered in red. With the dust jacket. 3 leaves from Horizon magazine III, 18 (June 1941), bearing the first printed appearance of Auden's poem "At the Grave of Henry James", bound in at rear. Near-contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper. Cloth lightly soiled, corners bumped. A very good copy in the spine-sunned dust jacket with a pencilled annotation and small mark to the rear panel. First UK edition, first impression. With the ownership inscription of surrealist poet David Gascoyne, dated May 1941 (the month of publication) to the front free endpaper. Gascoyne was a frequent contributor to Harry Grigson's New Verse, a literary magazine in which "Auden received almost unqualified approval Â… and was honoured in November 1937 in a special double number - studded with encomiums from the 'group' Â… However, it would be an oversimplification to describe the poetic house style of New Verse as 'Audenesque'. It is not really possible to identify any stylistic commonality between Auden and the neo-romantic poetry of Dylan Thomas and George Barker, the surrealism of David Gascoyne and Philip O'Connor, or the witty juvenilia of Gavin Ewart" (Harding, The Criterion: Cultural Politics and Periodical Networks in Inter-war Britain, p. 96). New Year Letter was originally published two months earlier in the US as The Double Man, the present edition differing from the US in that "the 'Modern sources' section is omitted from the notes, and the notes themselves have numerous changes, the UK edition often being fuller" (Bloomfield and Mendelson). One of 2,000 copies printed, scarce in the dust jacket.

        [Photo Album]: World War II Engineers

      1941-1943. Oblong quarto. Measuring 11" x 15". String-tied black papercovered boards and "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. A collection of 168 sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring between 2.5" x 2.5" to 4" x 5", some with captions. Very good with wear on the edges containing near fine or better photographs. A photo album compiled during World War II by a native Floridian soldier in the U.S. Corps of Engineers Army Map Service with the 957th, 911th, and 904th Engineer Corps. According to a 1968 report issued by the Army, "between 1941 and 1945, the Army Map Service prepared 40,000 maps of all types, covering 400,000 square miles of the earth's surface." The album covers the years 1941-1943 from his enlistment to his discharge, beginning with a newspaper clipping showing a group of soldiers outside of an armory in Baltimore awaiting induction. The photos show the men involved in "camouflage doings," with the unit hiding amongst ferns and what appears to be tropical growth with weapons, as well as "making nets." The album also shows the men playing baseball and sleeping in crowded train cars while being shipped off to their next location. One photo of a soldier showing off his new camera boasts, "now this is a camera." A few photos of domestic scenes show the soldier at home in Tampa, Florida posing with his dog and girlfriend. He then travels to Mango, Florida's engineering post, with photos of men posing with guns and a sentry up in a tree. The crude tents set up near foxholes can be seen here along with a makeshift altar for Christian services. By 1943 the young man is sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado near Colorado Springs serving at the Peterson Army Airbase. Throughout the album are wonderful amateur portraits of men participating in drills, posing in uniform, and with various weapons and tools. An interesting look at an important branch of the Army on the home front." .
