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.

        The archive of Churchill's wartime nurse, including an inscribed copy of My Early Life, her wartime diary, wartime photographs and correspondence, and later letters from Churchill's official biographer

      London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1941. Hardcover. This remarkable Second World War archive from ChurchillÂ’s wartime nurse, Dorothy Pugh (1919-2014), includes her inscribed copy of ChurchillÂ’s autobiography, her personal wartime diary, wartime photographs, and later correspondence from ChurchillÂ’s official biographer. In February 1943, Churchill was struggling to recover from a series of illnesses, including pneumonia. ChurchillÂ’s doctor, Sir Charles Wilson (made Lord Moran that March), Dean of St. MaryÂ’s Hospital Medical School, hired a young St. MaryÂ’s nurse to attend the Prime Minister. Her diary records that all she knew on 19 February 1943 was “Am to go out on a case tomorrowÂ… all very exciting.” The next day she “Met Sir C Wilson who duly introduced me to Mr WSC met Mrs C a little later. Both of them very nice indeedÂ… it all feels strange and unreal but no doubt I shall soon get used to it…” By the next day, it was decided she would reside with the Prime Minister: “Am going to live in as itÂ’s a rush to get here in the morning.” She would stay with him for several weeks, and thereafter as needed. During her first week with Churchill, he gave her a copy of My Early Life inscribed: “To | Nurse Dorothy Pugh | from | Winston S. Churchill | February 1943”. For the next eighteen months, Nurse Pugh would not only serve the Prime Minister in London, but also accompany him to Chequers and travel with him to both the First and Second Quebec conferences with Roosevelt. Her inscribed copy of My Early Life is the 1941 first printing of the wartime Macmillan reprint from the 1930 first edition plates. Nurse PughÂ’s inscribed copy is in near fine condition except for wrinkling to the front cover binding cloth, which appears to be a binding flaw rather than the result of any subsequent damage. The dust jacket is in near very good condition, showing overall age and wear, including modest spine toning, with only minor losses to extremities. The inscribed book is significant, but Nurse PughÂ’s remarkable personal diary truly anchors this archive, with myriad unique glimpses of wartime history – and of Churchill himself. The diary, in superior condition in the original blue leather binding, bears entries spanning 1942 to 1946. Nurse PughÂ’s entries juxtapose movie reviews, enthusiasm for eggs, and concern for her RAF husband (252 Squadron, flying Bristol Beaufighters in the Mediterranean, including Libya and Greece) with first-hand accounts of Churchill and key wartime figures that range from humorous and poignant (“Bed bathed P.MÂ…. Mrs C as an audience”) to grave import (“PM told me that Tunisia will be O.K. now.”). PughÂ’s entries interweave daily London life of rationing, air raids, and “carry on” ethos with the momentous figures, events, and decisions shaping wartime Britain. This thought must have been shared by ChurchillÂ’s official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert, who contacted Nurse Pugh on 22 March 1982 asking for her recollections about Churchill. Nurse Pugh replied on 6 April 1982 and some of her reflections were recorded in ChurchillÂ’s official biography, including her conversation with Churchill aboard the Queen Mary en route to the second Quebec conference with Roosevelt in September 1944. Three letters from Gilbert are included in this archive, as are five photographs of Nurse Pugh, among them two taken in Quebec during her travels with Churchill, as well as a Christmas 1944 letter to Nurse Pugh from her superior at St. MaryÂ’s Hospital. The archive is housed in a purpose-built half leather clamshell case with a nested cloth chemise. Nurse PughÂ’s husband survived the war; they would have two children and six grandchildren. At the end of her long life she was remembered for many things – a generous nature, charity work, love of gardening and keenness for ornithology – but perhaps most for her wartime service to Churchill. Her unique experience is remarkably encapsulated and illuminated in this archive, in both ChurchillÂ’s hand and her own. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.6.a

        A rare broadsheet from Frank Lloyd Wright expressing his opposition to American involvement in World War II, sent to Lewis Mumford

      Taliesin, Spring Green, Wisconsin, [May1941]. 8.5" x 8.5"(folded),17" x 17"(open). "Broadsheet, A TALIESIN SQUARE-PAPER A NONPOLITICAL VOICE FROM OUR DEMOCRATIC MINORITY. (Taliesin, Spring Green, Wisconsin, [May 1941]) 4pp. 8.5"" x 8.5"" (folded), 17"" x 17"" (open), this issue (No. 5) titled, ""TO BEAT THE ENEMY"" Addressed on the verso in type to ""MR. LEWIS MUMFORD AMENIA NEW YORK"" who tersely writes, ""Return to"" with an arrow pointing to ""TALIESIN,"", crossing out his name and writing ""'Take,"" as well as adding a date in pencil: ""July 41"". Light toning toward original folds and margins, else fine condition.Subtitled, ""A FREE FEARLESS ENLIGHTENED MINORITY IS THE CONSCIENCE OF A DEMOCRATIC NATION. WHEN IT IS STIFLED, DEMOCRACY IS GONE FROM THE LIFE OF THE PEOPLE AND FROM THE LIFE OF THE NATION,"" this was an occasional series of publications published by Wright at Taliesin between 1941 and 1953. The early issues, focused on Wrights' resistance to the United States entering the war in Europe???though Wright, who was a principled opponent of war and empire, would not characterize his stance as isolationist. Entitled ""TO BEAT THE ENEMY,"" Wright decries all forms of ""despotism,"" whether it German, Russian, Japanese, or American. ""No matter who wins this war, we, the people will eventually have to resolve this clash between two despotisms: the visible despotism of the axis powers and the invisible despotism of the so-called Democratic powers... Democratic despotism is losing visibility rapidly as we sneak toward total war. If we ask we will find the answers to be the same. Winning the war is not going to help the people if either set of rulers win if orthodox-finance governs heir use of the victory as it most surely will, unless the people act NO. If the people do not act no, democracy is no longer a living issue! If Hitler wins he would have to remain a visible despot. If Churchill wins he would have to become one with Franklin Roosevelt a likely a second.""Lewis Mumford and Frank Lloyd Wright first began corresponding in the 1920s, after Mumford had contributed an essay to the Dutch journal Wendingen in 1925 in which he discussed Wright's work as a continuation of a line of innovation begun by H. H. Richardson and Louis Sullivan as well as placing Wright in contrast to the European modernists like Le Corbusier. Mumford also characterized Wright's work as an ideal of form and expression ideally suited to the American landscape. An article along similar lines authored by Mumford for The American Mercury, elected a response from Wright in August 1926, in which the architect questioned the depth Mumford's understanding of his work. A set of exchanges culminated in their first meeting, a luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York, during the winter of 1926-1927 that would being a long and productive dialogue and friendship.This friendship, born of mutual respect and a love of argument, came under enormous strain in the years leading up the Second World War. Mumford, a liberal Democrat, viewed the rise of Nazism and Fascism anxiously???as he detailed in numerous articles and two full-length works: Men must Act (1939) and Faith For Living (1940) . Wright held a different view. His general distrust of empire compelled Wright to take a stand against American involvement in the escalating European conflict that struck many as merely isolationist???a charge that the architect roundly rejected.The final straw for Mumford had already arrived in a May 1941 issue which declared ""HITLER IS WINNING THIS WAR WITHOUT A NAVY. We are facing a new kind of warfare that the British Empire, owing to traditional faith in a great navy, cannot learn in time even if we furnished the equipment... Our frontier is no longer England, nor in any sense, it is European. Our frontier is our own shores.... "" An infuriated Mumford shot back to Wright: ""You dishonor all the generous impulses you once ennobled... Be silent! lest you bring upon yourself some greater shame."" To this, Wright retorted: ""There is no good Empire, there never was a just war."" True to his principles, Wright remained steadfastly opposed to the Second World War, and war in general. Escalating the feud, Mumford published his response to Wright in the interventionist journal, the New Leader. The two did not speak for over a decade. Wright, despite Mumford's hostility, continued sending along his ""Square-Papers,"" together with New Year's greetings and other pleasantries, all of which went unanswered by Mumford.The postwar period saw a thaw in their relationship, and Mumford remained a great admirer of Wright's work, despite their personal and philosophical differences. And Wright, despite Mumford's public shaming of the architect in print, continued sending New Year's greetings, unanswered by Mumford. However in the spring of 1951, Wright forwarded Mumford a copy of Sixty Years of Living Architecture, inscribed: ""In spite of all, your old F. Ll. W.""The gesture moved Mumford to respond and the two began the process of reconciliation, and the pair continued to correspond until Wright's death in 1959 (Wright, Mumford, et al., Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford: Thirty Years of Correspondence, 2001, 22-26)."

Frank verlangte eine eidesstattliche Versicherung der beiden Verlobten vor einer Behörde, daß sie von ansteckenden und erblichen Krankheiten frei seien; er verlangte eine staatliche Förderung der Heirat wohlgearteter Menschen mit miteinander und ein Eheverbot für missgeschaffene Menschen: "Das Heiraten der gänzlich ausgearteten, zwergartigen, sehr krüppelhaft verstellten Menschen darf nie gestattet werden; hingegen soll man darauf sehen, daß schöne, mit starken, wohl gebauten und gesundem Körper prangende Menschen im Eheschließung mit ihresgleichen unterstützt werden. Die Kindererzeugung ist die erste Absicht der Ehe" / "Gegenüber der Anweisung an Erblich-Minderwertige, lieber ledig zu bleiben, muss aber Vorsicht empfohlen werden: Menschen, die leichte Erbmängel bei sich feststellen, sollten sich noch nicht deshalb zu den Erblich-Minderwertigen rechnen. Sonst wird es leicht dahin kommen, daß Kluge und Gewissenhafte, die am meisten befähigt sind, die Folgen unerwünschter Fortpflanzung für das Gesamtwurf zu bedenken, auf Nachkommenschaft verzichteten, was umso bedenklicher wäre, als doch die minder klugen und minder gewissenhaften Menschen, besonders diejenigen schmarotzerischer Veranlagung, die mit staatlichen Beihilfen rechnen, unbekümmert heiraten und Kinder zeugen" - 21.-30.Tsd in sehr guter Erhaltung (Stempel auf Nachsatz, sonst sehr gut)

        ORIGINAL ART: SCALAWAGONS OF OZ

      NEILL, JOHN R.. NEILL,JOHN R. ORIGINAL ART: SCALAWAGONS OF OZ. When Ruth Plumly Thompson left Oz publishers Reilly and Lee, John R. Neill took over as author of the Oz series while still continuing to illustrate the books. The first Oz book Neill wrote was Wonder City of Oz and Scalawagons was the next (1941). This is a wonderful large finished pen and ink drawing by Neill. Depicted is a Scalawagon (a magical car) and a man rushing to get into the car. He is surrounded by 10-15 strange winged creatures called Bell-Men (because they have bell's on their heads). The image measures 12 1/2" wide x 8 1/2" matted. This does not appear in the book. It is from the estate of the Neill family.

      1941. 90pp folio scrapbook with 51 large photographs (most measuring 7-1/2 x 9 in.) laid down, plus newspaper clippings and printed ephemera including a menu and concert program. [Plus] 15 original photographs, most mounted with typed captions in Spanish. Folio. Black cloth, extremities rubbed. Very good. 90pp folio scrapbook with 51 large photographs (most measuring 7-1/2 x 9 in.) laid down, plus newspaper clippings and printed ephemera including a menu and concert program. [Plus] 15 original photographs, most mounted with typed captions in Spanish. Folio. ONE OF THE GREAT UNTOLD STORIES OF HOLOCAUST REFUGE. A remarkable survival, documenting the attempt to resettle European Jews in the Dominican Republic in the Second World War. Comprised mostly of material relating to the first anniversary of the signing of the agreement to establish the Sosua settlement, this is a significant collection of material documenting a little known episode in World War Two: a valiant attempt to establish a Jewish colony in the Caribbean. In the wake of the German Anschluss of Austria in March 1938, President Roosevelt convened a 32 nation conference at Evian-les-Baines to discuss the resettlement of German and Austrian Jews. With anti-Semitism (and fears of German spies) running high in the west, it was a largely thankless task and there was swift agreement that no one nation should be expected to receive in excess of a few thousand people. Although there were transit camps in Jamaica, Trinidad, Martinique and Curacoa, there was a single unlikely nation prepared to accept as many as a hundred thousand Jews on a permanent basis - so long as they agreed to work in agriculture. Thus the Dominican Republic Settlement Association (DORSA) was formed and 26,000 acres of land were purchased at the town of Sosua. President Trujillo's motives weren't entirely altruistic, he was partly motivated by the hope that the 1937 massacre of 15,000 Haitians might be overlooked and partly to prosecute his ambition to "whiten" Dominica: importing Central Europeans was one way to achieve this. One can't help but wonder at Trujillo encouraging Jewish immigration to achieve the same ends the Germans were persecuting the very same group for. An agreement was signed with the Trujillo government on 30 January, 1940. The contract read in part: "The Republic ... hereby guarantees to the settlers and their descendants full opportunity to continue their lives and occupations free from molestation, discrimination or persecution, with full freedom of religion ... civil, legal and economic rights, as well as other rights inherent to human beings." The uptake was slow, initially only 50 Jews made it across the Atlantic arriving in May 1940. They were given eighty acres of land and ten cows and received instruction in farming from kibbutzim in Palestine (only 13 of the refugees had farming experience). The population peaked in October 1941 at about 500 before the Third Reich suspended Jewish emigration and additional problems were encountered with submarine warfare in the Atlantic. A meat processing plant and cheese factory were soon established. However, the settlement performed significantly below expectations - conditions were difficult, morale was poor and in early 1941 the Vice President of DORSA even considered freezing the project. This group of material belonged to either James N. Rosenberg, president of DORSA, or more likely to Robert T. Pell, Assistant Chief of the Division of European Affairs, State Department. There is a presentation inscription on the front pastedown of the album reading, "To the "Chief" With deepest affection faithfully Alfred Wagg 3rd April 17th 1941". Wagg served as Secretary to the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees and was Pell's assistant. However, there are letters addressed to Rosenberg (including a TLS from Trujillo) laid down in the album which might indicate him as owner. Rosenberg's varied career combined work as a lawyer, playwrite, artist and art patron. He attended Columbia College and Columbia Law School. The photographs divide neatly in two groups - the majority depict the celebration of the anniversary of the signing and include shots of Wagg and Rosenberg as well as the various festivities. The second group documents those who made it to Sosua and we see them engaged in work and at play. This latter group are certainly publicity shots for the project. On the verso of one of the photographs is stamped: "Foto Conrado. (Dr Kurt Schnitzler) ... Republica Dominicana ... Reproduccion Prohibida" The ephemera tipped into the album includes: 1. Program in Honor of The International Committee on Refugees. January 27, 1941. 8vo. Bifolium. Government of Puerto Rico Institute of Tourism U.S.A. [1941] 2. Entertainment at Ciudad Trujillo for the Members of the Intergovernmental Committee. Typescript. 2ll. 4to. [plus] Two single sheet typescript invitations to the celebrations.

Speeches and Statements by Officials participating in the celebration of the first anniversary of the agreement between the Dominican Republic and The Dominican Republic Settlement Association. 13ll carbons. [Np, nd] Despite the reservations and slow uptake ("Today there are only 300 settlers at Sosua This year we plan for no more than another thousand"), Rosenberg's report is uniformly upbeat and enthusiastic on the improved health of the settlers. He describes the advances made in agricultural production and the increased diversity of their crops. There are comments on the generosity of the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company and the Falk Foundation who both made significant contributions toward the settlement's industry. Rosenberg signs off with a note of thanks: "It is fitting, therefore, your Excellency, that in the name of oppressed countless thousands to whom the Dominican Republic spells hope and home and haven, I voice again from the depths of my heart a thankfulness that cannot be measured." A rich archive documenting an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to resettle Jewish refugees in the early years of the Second World War. Any contemporary material regarding the experiment is extremely scarce, let alone so substantial a group compiled by one of the participants.

        A rare broadsheet from Frank Lloyd Wright expressing his opposition to American involvement in World War II, sent to Lewis Mumford

      Taliesin, Spring Green, Wisconsin, [May1941]. 8.5" x 8.5"(folded),17" x 17"(open). "Broadsheet, A TALIESIN SQUARE-PAPER A NONPOLITICAL VOICE FROM OUR DEMOCRATIC MINORITY. (Taliesin, Spring Green, Wisconsin, [May 1941]) 4pp. 8.5"" x 8.5"" (folded), 17"" x 17"" (open), this issue (No. 5) titled, ""TO BEAT THE ENEMY"" Addressed on the verso in type to ""MR. LEWIS MUMFORD AMENIA NEW YORK"" who tersely writes, ""Return to"" with an arrow pointing to ""TALIESIN,"", crossing out his name and writing ""'Take,"" as well as adding a date in pencil: ""July 41"". Light toning toward original folds and margins, else fine condition.Subtitled, ""A FREE FEARLESS ENLIGHTENED MINORITY IS THE CONSCIENCE OF A DEMOCRATIC NATION. WHEN IT IS STIFLED, DEMOCRACY IS GONE FROM THE LIFE OF THE PEOPLE AND FROM THE LIFE OF THE NATION,"" this was an occasional series of publications published by Wright at Taliesin between 1941 and 1953. The early issues, focused on Wrights' resistance to the United States entering the war in Europe?"though Wright, who was a principled opponent of war and empire, would not characterize his stance as isolationist. Entitled ""TO BEAT THE ENEMY,"" Wright decries all forms of ""despotism,"" whether it German, Russian, Japanese, or American. ""No matter who wins this war, we, the people will eventually have to resolve this clash between two despotisms: the visible despotism of the axis powers and the invisible despotism of the so-called Democratic powers... Democratic despotism is losing visibility rapidly as we sneak toward total war. If we ask we will find the answers to be the same. Winning the war is not going to help the people if either set of rulers win if orthodox-finance governs heir use of the victory as it most surely will, unless the people act NO. If the people do not act no, democracy is no longer a living issue! If Hitler wins he would have to remain a visible despot. If Churchill wins he would have to become one with Franklin Roosevelt a likely a second.""Lewis Mumford and Frank Lloyd Wright first began corresponding in the 1920s, after Mumford had contributed an essay to the Dutch journal Wendingen in 1925 in which he discussed Wright's work as a continuation of a line of innovation begun by H. H. Richardson and Louis Sullivan as well as placing Wright in contrast to the European modernists like Le Corbusier. Mumford also characterized Wright's work as an ideal of form and expression ideally suited to the American landscape. An article along similar lines authored by Mumford for The American Mercury, elected a response from Wright in August 1926, in which the architect questioned the depth Mumford's understanding of his work. A set of exchanges culminated in their first meeting, a luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York, during the winter of 1926-1927 that would being a long and productive dialogue and friendship.This friendship, born of mutual respect and a love of argument, came under enormous strain in the years leading up the Second World War. Mumford, a liberal Democrat, viewed the rise of Nazism and Fascism anxiously?"as he detailed in numerous articles and two full-length works: Men must Act (1939) and Faith For Living (1940) . Wright held a different view. His general distrust of empire compelled Wright to take a stand against American involvement in the escalating European conflict that struck many as merely isolationist?"a charge that the architect roundly rejected.The final straw for Mumford had already arrived in a May 1941 issue which declared ""HITLER IS WINNING THIS WAR WITHOUT A NAVY. We are facing a new kind of warfare that the British Empire, owing to traditional faith in a great navy, cannot learn in time even if we furnished the equipment... Our frontier is no longer England, nor in any sense, it is European. Our frontier is our own shores.... "" An infuriated Mumford shot back to Wright: ""You dishonor all the generous impulses you once ennobled... Be silent! lest you bring upon yourself some greater shame."" To this, Wright retorted: ""There is no good Empire, there never was a just war."" True to his principles, Wright remained steadfastly opposed to the Second World War, and war in general. Escalating the feud, Mumford published his response to Wright in the interventionist journal, the New Leader. The two did not speak for over a decade. Wright, despite Mumford's hostility, continued sending along his ""Square-Papers,"" together with New Year's greetings and other pleasantries, all of which went unanswered by Mumford.The postwar period saw a thaw in their relationship, and Mumford remained a great admirer of Wright's work, despite their personal and philosophical differences. And Wright, despite Mumford's public shaming of the architect in print, continued sending New Year's greetings, unanswered by Mumford. However in the spring of 1951, Wright forwarded Mumford a copy of Sixty Years of Living Architecture, inscribed: ""In spite of all, your old F. Ll. W.""The gesture moved Mumford to respond and the two began the process of reconciliation, and the pair continued to correspond until Wright's death in 1959 (Wright, Mumford, et al., Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford: Thirty Years of Correspondence, 2001, 22-26)."

        The straw that broke the camel's back: Lewis Mumford marks "Return" on Frank Lloyd Wright's anti-war publication?a stance that led the pair to cease communications for over a decade. An amazing WWII item

      Taliesin, Spring Green, Wisconsin, [May 1941]. 8.5" x 8.5"(folded),17" x 17"(open). "Broadsheet, A TALIESIN SQUARE-PAPER A NONPOLITICAL VOICE FROM OUR DEMOCRATIC MINORITY.

Light toning toward original folds and margins, else fine condition. Offered together with a portion of a large envelope, 18"" x 7"", address in Wright's artistichand in marking pen: ""MR. LEWIS MUMFORD AMENIA NEW YORK"" with a ""SPRING GREEN, WIS."" cancellation over a three cent ""WIN THE WAR"" stamp, and a short note written by Mumford in ink beneath: ""F.L.W. in wartime? Spectacle for posterity LM 19 Jan 45."" Some minor soiling and folds, else very good. Together two pieces.Subtitled, ""A FREE FEARLESS ENLIGHTENED MINORITY IS THE CONSCIENCE OF A DEMOCRATIC NATION. WHEN IT IS STIFLED, DEMOCRACY IS GONE FROM THE LIFE OF THE PEOPLE AND FROM THE LIFE OF THE NATION,"" this was an occasional series of publications published by Wright at Taliesin between 1941 and 1953. The early issues, focused on Wrights' resistance to the United States entering the war in Europe?"though Wright, who was a principled opponent of war and empire, would not characterize his stance as isolationist. Entitled ""OF WHAT USE IS A GREAT NAVY WITH NO PLACE TO HIDE,"" Wright fires a broadside at Roosevelt's support for England in its war with Germany, citing his opposition to the idea of empire as the enemy of democracy and bemoaning what he termed America's hypocrisy for advocating involvement in the war. Lewis Mumford and Frank Lloyd Wright first began corresponding in the 1920s, after Mumford had contributed an essay to the Dutch journal Wendingen in 1925 in which he discussed Wright's work as a continuation of a line of innovation begun by H. H. Richardson and Louis Sullivan as well as placing Wright in contrast to the European modernists like Le Corbusier. Mumford also characterized Wright's work as an ideal of form and expression ideally suited to the American landscape. An article along similar lines authored by Mumford for The American Mercury, elected a response from Wright in August 1926, in which the architect questioned the depth Mumford's understanding of his work. A set of exchanges culminated in their first meeting, a luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York, during the winter of 1926-1927 that would being a long and productive dialogue and friendship.This friendship, born of mutual respect and a love of argument, came under enormous strain in the years leading up the Second World War. Mumford, a liberal Democrat, viewed the rise of Nazism and Fascism anxiously?"as he detailed in numerous articles and two full-length works: Men must Act (1939) and Faith For Living (1940) . Wright held a different view. His general distrust of empire compelled Wright to take a stand against American involvement in the escalating European conflict that stuck many as merely isolationist?"a charge that the architect roundly rejected.The final straw for Mumford came in the a present issue of Wright's Square Paper which declared ""HITLER IS WINNING THIS WAR WITHOUT A NAVY. We are facing a new kind of warfare that the British Empire, owing to traditional faith in a great navy, cannot learn in time even if we furnished the equipment... Our frontier is no longer England, nor in any sense, it is European. Our frontier is our own shores.... "" An infuriated Mumford shot back to Wright: ""You dishonor all the generous impulses you once ennobled... Be silent! lest you bring upon yourself some greater shame."" To this, Wright retorted: ""There is no good Empire, there never was a just war."" True to his principles, Wright remained steadfastly opposed to the Second World War, and war in general. Escalating the feud, Mumford published his response to Wright in the interventionist journal, the New Leader. The two did not speak for over a decade. The postwar period saw a thaw in their relationship, and Mumford remained a great admirer of Wright's work, despite their personal and philosophical differences. And Wright, despite Mumford's public shaming of the architect in print, continued sending New Year's greetings, unanswered by Mumford. However in the spring of 1951, Wright forwarded Mumford a copy of Sixty Years of Living Architecture, inscribed: ""In spite of all, your old F. Ll. W."" The gesture moved Mumford to respond and the two began the process of reconciliation, and the pair continued to correspond until Wright's death in 1959 (Wright, Mumford, et al., Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford: Thirty Years of Correspondence, 2001, 22-26)."

        The Mysterious Affair At Styles

      London: The Bodley Head, 1941., 1941. Author's first novel, reissued. Octavo., pp. 296. Publisher's red cloth, titles in black to spine. Pictorial dustwrapper illustrated by H.T. Warren, shows titles and a horrified face in the shadows to front cover, titles to spine, and publisher's advertisements to rear cover; unclipped, originally priced at 2s 6d. Binding is slightly rubbed, a little cocked and shaken, with some bumping to corners. Internally clean and free from spotting. Rare in the dust wrapper, which is rubbed and a little dusty, with some loss to corners and at the base of the spine, removing the "ad" from Bodley Head. The first appearance of the cerebral Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, perhaps the only rival to Doyle's Sherlock Holmes for the position of greatest fictional detective in the public imagination. This novel, Christie's first, also introduces two other favourite characters, Captain Hastings and Inspector Japp. Truly a tour de force, and the best place to start improving the little grey cells with a little light detective work.
