        The Forge

      London: Faber and Faber, 1941. Hardcover. Acceptable. Signed. 349 p. Oatmeal cloth with gilt lettering, an ex-institutional copy with unfortunate stamps on ffep next to inscription, stickers at rear endpaper, call number wear spot and dot at foot. First edition, second impression. Our best guess of the fep inscription in Spanish is "a mis fravers en recuerdo / de un ano felis en Rose Farm. / Rose Farm House April 1945 / Arturo Barea [underlined]" badly translated as "My sentences (?) in memory of a happy year [at] Rose Farm." Barea was a broadcaster for the BBC late in life. According to Michael Eaude in Triumph at Midnight of the Century Rose Farm House was apparently where the BBC's monitoring service and the author's wife Ilsa moved in 1943. Fair in a supplied Very Good dust jacket with some spine panel sunning and short closed tears. The book's ex-library status is too bad, but Barea's signature is exceptionally rare. His memoirs were hailed by George Orwell and other critics and are widely considered among the best accounts of the Spanish Civil War.

        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.

        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).

        Original photo portrait.

      Probably Saudi Arabia, 19. V. 1941. - Original gelatin silver print (228 x 180 mm). John Bagot Glubb (1897-1986), seated within a tent, in conversation with an Arab skeikh. Caption mounted on reverse: "Major John B. Glubb, the 'second Lawrence of Arabia,' (right) confers with an Arab chieftain in the near East". - Glubb, known as "Glubb Pasha" and nicknamed "abu Hunaik" for a jaw injury sustained in WWI, became an officer of the Arab Legion (later the Jordan Royal Army) in 1930 and in 1939 succeeded Frederick Peake as commander. During this period, he transformed the legion into the best trained force in the Arab world. "Arab nationalists believed that he had been the personal force behind the pressure to make King Hussein I of Jordan join the Baghdad Pact [.] During WWII, he led attacks on Arab leaders in Iraq, as well as against the Vichy regime" (Encyclopaedia of the Orient). - Some wrinkling; traces of glue on reverse.

        Reflections in a Golden Eye

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1941. First Edition, First Printing. Fine in original two-toned decorated cloth and an almost fine dust jacket with the original $2.00 price on the front flap. This poorly conceived jacket has an acetate "window," a rectangle cut out on the upper panel that reveals the "Reflections in a Golden Eye" title on the cover of the book below. Almost every copy of this jacket is compromised by the sizing up or shrinking of the acetate over time causing tears and disinegration to the jacket and window. The copy has a short closed tear at the upper front fold but is otherwise nearly flawless. Truly a superior copy.. Octavo. 14 x 21 cm. 183 pp.

        The Pure Theory of Capital.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1941 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Plain book label of "Elwyn Jones, November 24th 1943, Cambridge". Jacket spine toned, nicks and chips to extremities, binding lightly creased at head and tail of spine. An excellent copy in the rare dust jacket. Figures in the text. First edition, first impression, of this scarce title, which showed "the very complex nature of capital and its importance in economic booms and slumps, and stands as a classic in the field." (Butler). Hayek "provides lucid expositions of his notions of 'inter-temporal equilbrium', the 'physical productivity of investment', and the 'vertical or successive division of labor'. Although Hayek rejects the concept of a 'supply of capital' as a measurable quantity, he derives a meaningful 'marginal productivity of investment'" (IESS). IESS 1941b. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Bolszewizm oznacza panowanie ?ydów. [Bolshevism Means the Jewish World Domination.]

      S. n. (ca. 1941-1944.), N. p. - Original, vintage photographic poster. Printed in blue and yellow. Text in Polish. 420 × 620 mm. Polish antisemitic, anti-Bolshevik Nazi propaganda poster. The poster is composed of six photographic images and a printed yellow Star of David in the upper left corner, and printed yellow "contrast-lines". The six individual images are numbered and their description is printed to the lower left corner. They show desecrated churches, exhumed and distorted corps, and the text claims all were perpetrated by the Bolsheviks. The title of poster is "Bolszewizm oznacza panowanie ?ydów" (Bolshevism means the domination of the Jews), and the lower text tells that between 1918 and 1936 48,600 priests were killed in Russia, while there are no reports about the murder of any rabbis. Scarce Nazi propaganda poster. We could trace only one copy in institutional holdings in Germany (Bundesarchiv; Plak 003-039-004). Small tears to edges, no effect to the images. Water stain to lower part. Yellowed due to acidic paper. Folded. Overall in very good condition. Original, vintage photographic poster. Printed in blue and yellow. Text in Polish.

The front gilt is very bright and the spine gilt is only slightly faded , one of the best spine gilts I have seen on a 1941. Internally it has very clean pages and it cannot have been opened too many times as the hinges are very springy. Small mark to page block, pictures taken with and without flash. A very nice, rare, Wisden that is hard to beat.

        Tortilla Flat (Original screenplay for the 1942 film)

      Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1941. Revised Shooting script for the 1943 film. Likely a crew member's copy, with director Fleming's name on the front wrapper in holograph pencil, although the signature is not in the hand of Fleming. Brief notations throughout in holograph pencil. The fourth Steinbeck script to be adapted in as many years. Not as well known today as "The Grapes of Wrath" or "Of Mice and Men," but still a wonderful, warm adaptation of what is perhaps Steinbeck's lightest and most anecdotal novel, with expert interplay among Spencer Tracy, John Garfield, and the great Henry Morgan. John Garfield plays a Mexican-American named Danny whose grandfather leaves him two houses as inheritance. Unfortunately Danny's friends quickly move into Danny's newfound homes, and Danny must struggle to find employment and get the girl. Set in Northern California. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Goldenrod studio wrappers, rubber-stamped COMPLETE and copy No. 71, dated 7/16/41, with credits for producer Zimbalist and screenwriter Mahin. Title page integral with revision summary page, dated 7/16/41. 140 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 127. Mimeograph, with revision pages throughout, dated variously between 7/18/41 and 11/12/41, and a few yellow revision pages dated 10/28/41. Very Good overall, lacking rear wrapper, bound with two gold brads.

Eine Freundschaft verband ihn mit Henry Gowa. der ihn nach Saarbrücken holte. wo er von 1947 bis 1951 die Meisterklasse für Malerei an der neugegründeten Schule für Kunst und Handwerk leitete. Frans Masereel regte am 26. September 1953 gemeinsam mit den deutschen Künstlern HAP Grieshaber. Erich Heckel. Gerhard Marcks. Ewald Mataré. Otto Pankok. Max Pechstein. Karl Rössing und anderen in Zürich an. die \"XYLON Societé Internationale des Graveurs sur Bois\" zu gründen.

        Remembrance of Things Past: Swann's Way, Within A Budding Grove, The Guermantes Way, Cities of the Plain, The Captive, The Sweet Cheat Gone, Time Regained

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1941-1944. Twelve octavo volumes, modern three-quarter blue morocco lettered in gilt, blue cloth boards, top edges gilt. Spines lightly toned. Uniform Edition of Proust's great novel, first published in Paris between 1913 and 1927, handsomely bound. The first eleven volumes follow C.K. Scott Moncrieff's first English translation; the final volume, Time Regained, is translated by Stephen Hudson. In À la Recherche du Temps Perdu, now usually translated as In Search of Lost Time, Proust attempted to "encircle the truth with a single -- even if long and sinuous -- stroke," evoking an entire sensual world of experience through his narrator's fluctuating memory: "the whole of Combray and its surroundings, taking their proper shapes and growing solid, sprang into being, town and gardens alike, from my cup of tea." Original invoices for books (W. & G. Foyle, London) and bookbinding (Crane Bookshop, Surrey) laid into Volume I. A bright near-fine set.

        The Pure Theory of Capital.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1941. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Figures in the text. Plain book label of "Elwyn Jones, November 24th 1943, Cambridge". Jacket spine toned, nicks and chips to extremities, binding lightly creased at head and tail of spine. An excellent copy in the rare dust jacket. First edition, first impression, of this scarce title, which showed "the very complex nature of capital and its importance in economic booms and slumps, and stands as a classic in the field." (Butler). Hayek "provides lucid expositions of his notions of 'inter-temporal equilbrium', the 'physical productivity of investment', and the 'vertical or successive division of labor'. Although Hayek rejects the concept of a 'supply of capital' as a measurable quantity, he derives a meaningful 'marginal productivity of investment'" (IESS).

        Ava Gardner's Completed Questionnaire for Employment at MGM, 1941

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM] (presumed), 1941. Actress Ava Gardner's completed questionnaire for "Employees of the Motion Picture Industry" form issued by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Completed in black holograph ink, signed, with Ms. Gardner indicating her current married name ("Ava Gardner Rooney") her birth date, her age (19), her place of birth (North Carolina), birthday, marital status, height, weight, etc. Rubber-stamped with a file number, and other holograph secretarial notations in the margin. Attached at the top right corner is a "mug shot" of the actress, with an MGM clapboard held just below her face. Though undated, the form, based on the information provided, must have been filled out in 1942, after Ms. Gardner was married to Mickey Rooney (January 10, 1942) and prior to her 20th birthday (December 24, 1942). This was the same year she arrived in Hollywood, at the peak of the studio system era. MGM was the first studio to offer work to the young actress following a New York screen test. Gardner came from a large family of poor cotton and tobacco farmers in North Carolina, and while she required a speech coach to rid her of an incomprehensible southern drawl, her presence on film was magnetic from the very beginning. 8.5 x 11 inches, printed on recto only, Very Good plus. Photograph is .75 x 1 inches, Near Fine.
