        Original Photograph

      - Original 1941 photograph by Lotte Jacobi of the composer and celebrated tenor, seated together at the keyboard. Signed lower right margin by the photographer and titled lower left, undated and probably printed ca. 1960. Mounted to rigid backing, matted and framed with only the image showing [3.75 x 2.75 inches]. Jacobi photographed Britten and Pears during their American tour (August, 1939 to March, 1942), while they were staying at the NY home of William and Elizabeth Mayer, a psychiatrist and a pianist who were friends and frequent hosts of Britten and Pears during their American visits. This photograph, taken 29 December, 1941 shows the two musicians seated side by side at the piano, apparently during an evening of chamber music playing. The unique creative partnership between these two artists may be claimed to have been without parallel elsewhere in musical history.

        ["The Saint's Second Front"] Typescript of an unpublished novella

      N.p., 1941. 237 pp., rectos only, typescript with manuscript corrections in pencil by the author. 4to. Unbound leaves in remnant of original envelope, with typist's note, and "Pearl Harbor" in red ink on cover and small label. Some light creasing and evidence of handling, a few spots, in very good condition. 237 pp., rectos only, typescript with manuscript corrections in pencil by the author. 4to. A Long-Lost Saint Typescript. The complete unpublished typescript of Leslie Charteris's long-lost Saint novella, The Saint's Second Front - the plot of which foreshadows the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Written just months before the attack, Charteris's story involves a plan by the Japanese to use a clandestine army - the Black Dragon - to attack Southern California as prelude to a larger invasion. The story was submitted to Cosmopolitan, who rejected it and wrote to Charteris that "we do not think this is the time to publish anything which might aggravate the tensions with our Japanese friends." Charteris referenced the story several times in interviews and in writing, describing it in the introduction to the May 1957 issue of The Saint Detective Magazine : "I wrote a book in which the Saint averted a fair facsimile of Pearl Harbor, except that the attack was to be on California instead of Oahu. That is the only story I have written since becoming a professional which never got published: nobody would touch it, because it was too preposterous, and might even offend our good friends, the Japs." It was believed that the only surviving typescript of the story was destroyed in the 1950s when Doubleday purged its archives. This copy, which clearly once belonged to Charteris and bears his corrections, was part of a small archive of material given by the author to a friend in Ireland and only recently rediscovered.

        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.

        And Quiet Flows the Don [Signed] [Tikhiy Don]

      Moscow: Foreign Languages Publishing House, 1941. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good copy of the scarce first edition in English translation, first printing (some dulling to the spines, modest rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, small tide mark to the bottom of Volume 4's closed page block -- only mildly invasive of the bottom page margins near the gutter -- lacking the exceedingly scarce dust jackets); the first printing in English translation of Mikhail Sholokhov's complete epic novel in 4 Volumes, SIGNED BY MIKHAIL SHOLOKHOV on a small sheet of paper loosely laid in to Volume 1, and complete with the Key to Principal Characters also loosely laid in to Volume 1; each Volume has a place-marker ribbon integral to the Volume. First published in Russian as "The Quiet Don", the work was issued in serial form from 1928 to 1940. While a portion of the novel (being only the first half of the book) was published in English translation in 1934, the entire work was not published in English until 1941, with the 4 Volumes offered here constituting the first English translation of the completed work. The 1934 partial publication is itself quite uncommon, and the complete 4-Volume edition offered here is quite scarce. The book tells the tale of the Cossacks living in the Don River Valley during the turbulent early Twentieth Century, a period which saw World War I, the Russian Revolution(s), the Russian Civil War, and the Bolsheviks' harsh repression of the Cossacks. Quite well received, the work became one of the most-read Russian novels of all time. In awarding him the 1965 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Swedish Academy, in support of its choice, spoke of "the artistic power and integrity with which, in his epic of the Don, Sholokhov has given expression to a historic phase in the life of the Russian people" and the Presentation Speech stated: "With magnificent realism the book portrays the unique character of the Cossack, the traditional mixture of cavalryman and farmer, with instincts that seem to conflict with one another but which nevertheless allow themselves to be welded together to form a firmly co-ordinated whole. There is no glamorization. The coarse and savage streaks in the Cossack temperament are displayed openly; nothing is hidden or glossed over, but, at the same time, one is aware of an undercurrent of respect for all that is human." The novel was three times adapted to film (1931, 1958, and 2006). Signed copies of Sholokhov's work in English translation are quite scarce, and signed copies of the first complete edition of this major work are remarkably scarce. A Very Good or better copy of Mikhail Aleksandrovich Sholokhov's masterpiece for which he won the 1965 Noble Prize in Literature, SIGNED BY SHOLOKHOV. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        Let us Now Praise Famous Men

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1941. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. pp xvi, 471, + 31 b/w plates by Evans. Original black cloth, lightly sunned at spine ends, with a few small scuffs to the boards, a few introductory pages roughly opened. Binding sound and square, text and endpapers unmarked. Dust jacket sunned at spine as usual, and with some chipping to the top edge, mostly at the spine and one short closed tear to the rear panel. Internal archival reinforcement at one fold. Rear flap clipped, but front flap with original $3.50 price intact. This important work was the outcome of a 1936 assignment from Fortune magazine to do a photographically illustrated article on southern sharecroppers. After Agee and Evans returned from two months in Alabama, the magazine found they had more than they bargained for, when instead of a straightforward report of Depression-era woe, Agee submitted what one biographer has called "a mixture of lyricism, painstaking description, scathingly personal confession, and moral outrage." Although Fortune rejected the article, and the book sold poorly when finally published in 1941, the collaboration has since been recognized as masterpiece of both literature and photojournalism.

        1940 - 1941. Ansichten und Ereignisse in diesen wichtigen Jahren. [Unikat zum Exil in Guatemala. Typoscript]

      Puerto San Jose (vermutlich), 1941. 159, 39, 18 Blatt 4°(=30-35cm), Ledereinband der Zeit (braun) Heutzutage wäre es wohl ein \"blog\". Über den Autor ist mir nur sehr wenig bekannt, er schreibt nur sehr wenig über sich selbst und seine Familie. Selbst der Name ist nur aufgrund einer beiligenden Quittung zugeordnet. Jedenfalls war er zur Zeit des 2. Weltkriegs in Guatemala und hat vorher in Österreich gewohnt. Es ist davon auszugehen, dass er Österreich nicht freiwillig verlassen hat. Für seinen Sohn beschreibt er in einer Art Tagebuch die aus seiner Sicht wichtigsten Ereignisse des Krieges. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf militärischen Ereignissen und geostrategischen Überlegungen. Faszinierend ist dabei weniger die Sachkenntnis des Autors, sondern gerade seine beschränkte Perspektive. Im südamerikanischen Exil war er vermutlich auf Radioberichte und nur gelegentliche schriftliche oder mündliche Informationen angewiesen. Es wird deutlich nachvollziehbar, wie schwer es dabei war, zwischen Propaganda und tatsächlichen Nachrichten zu unterscheiden. Gerade auch durch gelegentliche Fehleinschätzungen entsteht ein starker Eindruck von jemandem, der fernab der geschichtlichen Ereignisse doch Tag für Tag sehr lebendig daran teilhat. Die Einschätzungen sind dabei immer definitiv parteilich gegen das sogenannte \"Nazionien\" und immer (fast zwanghaft) optimistisch. Schon 1940 beginnt er, die baldige Niederlage der Achsenmächte vorherzusagen. Das Buch besteht aus ca. 159 einseitig maschinenbeschriebenen Seiten und dazwischen beigeheftet ca. 39 Blatt Zeitdokumente (beidseitig bedruckt), das sind ganz überwiegend die \"Noticias Oficiales de Londres\", herausgegeben von der Legacion Britanica, Guatemala, Centro America. Lose beiliegend nochmal ca. 18 Blatt mit Berichten und Kommentaren zur Lage Januar bis August 1944 (diese mit Randläsuren). Die maschinengeschriebenen Texte sind fast alle deutsch, nur wenige spanisch. Die gedruckten Texte sind auf spanisch. Insgesamt gering bestoßen. Einbandinnenseiten vorn und hinten fleckig. Wenige Seiten mit kleiner Fehlstelle am rechten unteren Rand (minimaler Textverlust). Papier normal gebräunt. Es finden sich durchgängig handschriftliche Anmerkungen, kleine Ergänzungen und Hervorhebungen durch den Autor, in der Regel zum Herausstreichen der wichtigsten Stellen. Versandkostenfreie Lieferung

        First Edition of FDR's Committee for Civil Service Improvement Report, Signed by Three Supreme Court Justices

      1941 - Signed Book. Report of President's Committee on Civil Service Improvement. [Washington, D.C.], This presentation copy to William H. McReynolds, the Liaison Officer for Personnel Management, is signed by all the committee members, including the chairman, Justice Stanley Reed, Justice Felix Frankfurter, Justice Frank Murphy, Attorney General Robert H. Jackson, Leonard D. White, General Robert E. Wood, and Cooper Union President Gano Dunn. Historical Background On June 24, 1938, President Roosevelt extended the Civil Service Act of 1883 to approximately 24,000 higher-level positions. While most positions were quickly reorganized within the Civil Service, roughly 5,000 positions required a more complex transition. Officially classified as professional, scientific, or otherwise specially-skilled jobs, most were attorney positions. To facilitate the attorneys' smooth shift into the Civil Service, Roosevelt issued a second order at the beginning of 1939 that postponed the application of the earlier order and created a special committee to "make a comprehensive study of methods of recruiting, testing, selecting, promoting, transferring, removing, and reinstating personnel." The Committee on Civil Service Improvement, after several intensive meetings, produced this report, which offered extensive recommendations for integrating legal, engineering, architectural, natural science, administration, and social science positions into the Civil Service.Committee members included Supreme Court Justices Stanley Reed, Felix Frankfurter, and Frank Murphy; Attorney General (and future Justice) Robert H. Jackson; the President's Administrative Assistant and Liaison Officer for Personnel Management William H. McReynolds; public administration expert Leonard D. White; Sears, Roebuck executive and U.S. General Robert E. Wood; and electrical engineer and Cooper Union President Gano Dunn. All eight committee members approved the report by signing on a sheet, bound in after the free front endpapers. The Library of Congress has a photograph of the members of this committee, taken as they began open hearings at the Supreme Court Building on November 1, 1939. Condition Near Fine.

        Les Fossoyeurs du Progres - Les Mandarins contre les Pionniers de la Science - SIGNED

      Imprimerie Leon Sezanne, Lyon. 1941. F 1st Edition. H Hardcover. Good. No Jacket 322 pages (complete). This rare book is even further rarified in that it is INSCRIBED (to Paul Berney) by Auguste Lumiere on the front page (dated: 2 - 2 - 42). Auguste Lumiere, together with his brother Louis, created the modern Cinema. Their bringing together of techniques and developments and showing the results to, crucially, large groups of the public changed the story of moving pictures forever. Together they also changed, irrevocably, the way photographs were developed with their introduction of the 'dry development' technique that required a dark room. Once they had made their fortunes and assured their names in history, the Lumiere brothers settled into their own paths. Auguste's passion was science, development and techonology. He settled in Lyon for the rest of his life where he researched and wrote on scientific and medical matters. This is a polemic against the bureaucracy that stifled scientific research. Published in Vichy Lyon by the indefatigable and impervious Leon Sezanne publishers. Rebound in marbled board and quarter leather. In good sound, sturdy, strong condition. There is wear to the board corners and to the leather spine. The spine is muscular and dignified. The gilt print is bright. The early pages have slight user marking to the right edges. There is some very mild foxing to these pages. The pages are firm, sturdy, very confident and assured. Considering that the book was published in wartime and its consequent economic restrictions the paper is of exceptional quality. The pages are healthy, clean and clear. They are tight to the binding, vigorous and sure. French Text fk Signed: I Inscribed by Author(s)

By the end of January 1942, there were 5,601,892 Americans enrolled in civil defense programs including 334,666 auxiliary police, 670,673 air raid wardens and 265,580 medical personnel. 8,478 defense councils had also been organized" (https://www.nh.gov/nhsl/ww2/ww52.html).
