        Apollo Chorine

      New York: , 1941. Colour lithograph (31 × 23 cm), mounted, framed and glazed. Slight mottling in the lower right-hand corner, else very good. Limited edition of 50, signed and numbered in pencil by the artist, this number 7. One of the illustrations from Hirschfeld and Saroyan's "Harlem as seen by Hirschfeld", this one of the high-quality lithographs printed with the intention of issuing a set of the plates in portfolio. The idea never came to fruition, but a number of the plates did make it onto the market. A splendid image of one of the Apollo Theater's famous "No.1" Chorus, so called because when they extended an open challenge to all the chorus-lines in town for a "dance-off", response came there none. In fact in the year that Hirschfeld's sassy image of a top-hatted danseuse was being printed, the chorus-line was laid off as a cost-cutting measure, times were tight, and the girls' notorious strike of the previous year probably did not help their case. So from 1941 the famous sign above the stage door at the Apollo, "Through these portals pass the most beautiful girls in Harlem" was redundant, as were the girls themselves. When Hirschfeld had joined the American artistic exodus to Paris in the 20s, he did so without the financial security possessed by so many of those bright, young things, and he supported himself by working as a tap-dancer in clubs. His work has always been noted for its informed affection for the performing arts, his personal engagement with dance is clearly evident here.

        Raskens. En soldatfamiljs historia. I-II. Elfte upplagan.

      - Stockholm; Bonniers, 1941. (Vår egen tids bästa moderna svenska berättare, utvalda av Radiotjänst). 19x13 cm. 210 & (4, 1 blank), 212-380 s. Två volymer i förlagets tryckta linneband. Pärmhörnen lätt tilltryckta. Fina inlagor. Dedikation i första volymen: "Till Kristina med tillgivenhet från hennes Vilhelm". [?To Kristina with affection from her Vilhelm?]. Vilhelm Moberg (1898-1973), Swedish journalist, social critic, and one of Sweden?s foremost authors of the 20th century. He was born in Algutsboda in the province of Småland, where his father served as a soldier. Moberg worked in his youth with farming and forestry. After a few years of schooling, he worked as a journalist at different provincial newspapers, in which he also published his first short stories. His breakthrough as an author came in 1927 with the novel ?Raskens. The Story of a Soldier?s Family?, where he depicts the life of the tenant farmers in 19th century Småland. His foremost work, which has been widely translated and is considered one of the finest epic works in Swedish 20th century literature, is ?The Emigrant Novels? (1949-1959). In this tetralogy he describes the Swedish emigration to North America through the story of the farmer Karl Oskar Nilsson and his wife Kristina. Moberg was politically engaged and always fought for individual rights, and for the abolition of the monarchy and the State Church of Sweden. He intervened in affairs of corrupt legal practice and published the bestselling book ?Why I am a Republican? (1955). His political views were inspired by his visits to USA and by the Swiss constitution. Moberg had a love affair with a woman named Kristina, whose name he used for the main character Kristina from Duvemåla of ?The Emigrant Novels? This love affair has remained unknown for over half a century, until a collection of his novels, all inscribed by Moberg to Kristina [Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005)], appeared on the market. Judging from the tone in the inscriptions, the relation between Moberg and Kristina was initially intimate and loving, and gradually devolving into affection. In the early inscriptions from the 1940s Moberg writes, for instance: ?To Kristina, my confidant and beloved!?, and in the play ?Chastity? he writes: ?Vilhelm Moberg?s chastity ? what is left of it is hereby dedicated to Kristina? The later in-scriptions from the 1960s contain phrases like: ?with a devout greeting? and ?from her affectionate Vilhelm? In the copy of ?The Emigrants? (?Utvandrarna?, 1949) Moberg writes: ?To Kristina, my be loved, who has lent her name to the female main character in this book, with gratitude and love from The Author.? In the last inscription, in the pocket edition of ?The Emigrant Novels? from 1969, he returns to the fact that she has given her name to Kristina from Duvemåla, which shows that the thought of her had occupied his mind during all these years, and it is also a sign of her probable influence on his writing from 1945 onwards. What further strengthens this opinion is the copy of ?Our Unborn Son?, a play from 1945, which deals with the issue of abortion. This is the only one of these books that has been bestowed with a fine leather binding, with a pocket at end of the volume where Kristina has collected newspaper cuttings on the book and its author, suggesting that the theme of this novel was essential to her. The book was translated into Danish in 1947, and in the collection there is a copy of the Danish edition which has been inscribed to Kristina by the translator thus: ?? This book, which is partly about you?? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Into Battle, inscribed by Churchill on his birthday, a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor, to his first cousin Clare Sheridan, "the nearest thing to a sister that Winston ever had"

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1941. First edition, seventh printing. Hardcover. This is the first volume of Churchill's war speeches, inscribed and dated to his first cousin Clare Sheridan, "the nearest thing to a sister that Winston ever had." The unusually personal inscription inked in black in four lines on the first free endpaper reads: "To Clare | from | Winston | November 30 . 1941". The date is Churchill's own birthday, just a week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Clare Consuelo Frewen Sheridan (1885-1970) was an accomplished sculptress and writer. Strong-willed, restless, fiercely independent, and intellectually curious, Clare shared many characteristics with her famous cousin, but lived a hedonistic, promiscuous life that was both financially and socially turbulent. Her cousin Winston was a presence throughout that life, as she was in his. Clare was the middle of three children born to Winston's Aunt Clara Jerome Frewen (1851-1935) and Moreton Frewen (the famously slipshod editor of Winston's first book). Clare was the only girl among the eight children born to the three famous Jerome sisters. In Clare's childhood, Winston was already a formidable presence. "Winston was a large schoolboy when I was still in the nursery... He filled me with awe." (Nuda Veritas, Clare Sheridan, p.14) Clare married Wilfred Sheridan in 1910. When their second daughter, born in 1913, died in her first year, "Clare was devastated and began her first attempts at sculpture to escape her grief." (Fortune's Daughters, p.302) Their only son Richard was born on 20 September 1915 and Wilfred was killed a few days later leading his men at the Battle of Loos. (FD, p.303) Winston wrote to Clare: "I know there is nothing I can write can ease a single throb of your immense sorrow, or soothe a moment of your loss. In the face of this terrible event I feel by how fond I am of you, how we have always been friends since you were a little tot... (Letter of 3 October 1915) Wilfred's death both devastated and released Clare; for the rest of her life she would make her living sculpting and writing. Clare and Winston's relationship was tested by her Bolshevik sympathies in the early 1920s, but endured. At the height of the war in 1942, Clare sculpted Winston. "...she came to him in the morning while he was still in bed... in the underground shelter, which had become the night-time annexe of the Prime Minister's residence... Clare grew frustrated trying to capture him, as he refused to keep still or to give up his cigar... but one morning managed to seize a few uninterrupted hours and finished the piece." (FD, p.378) Bronze versions of Clare's bust of Winston reside at Blenheim Palace, Chartwell, Harrow School, and Hastings Town Hall. A year after this inscription, Clare wrote to Winston: "You have pulled us through the dark tunnel into the light of dawn!" (8 November 1942 Letter from Clare to Winston). Into Battle contains speeches from May 1938 when Churchill was still out of favor and out of power, to November 1940, six months after Churchill became wartime Prime Minister. This inscribed volume is the first edition, seventh printing of July 1941. The volume is good condition, with superior contents. The blue cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners and only light wear to extremities, but marred by dark staining to the top, bottom, and fore edges of the front cover that looks almost like an artist's careless exposure of the book to paint overspray. The contents are crisp and bright with spotting primarily confined to page edges. The author's inscription is the sole ownership mark. Clare apparently preserved the original dust jacket by pasting most of it within the book. The dust jacket front panel is affixed to the front pastedown, the front flap to the first free endpaper verso, and the rear panel to the second free endpaper recto. We have left the original binding intact, but a fine rebinding might be worthy of consideration. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A142.1.h, Woods/ICS A66(a.7), Langworth p.204

        The Pure Theory of Capital

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1941. Octavo. Original publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered gilt, with the rare dust jacket. With figures in the text. Pastedowns with some offset from the boards, dust jacket with minor abrasion to the rear panel, the spine darkened with a small paper label to the foot, slightly chipped at the head. An excellent copy. First edition 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).

        RANDOM HARVEST (First Edition, Inscribed to Horace McCoy, referencing his admiration for McCoy's masterpiece: "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?")

      Little, Brown, Boston 1941 - Hilton, James. RANDOM HARVEST. Boston: Little, Brown, 1941. First Edition, first printing. A NEAR FINE copy (top edge lightly foxed) in a Very Good to Near Fine dust jacket (spine panel also lightly foxed, small closed tear to rear panel, tiny bit of creasing, slight wear to the extremities). A REMARKABLE HOLLYWOOD PRESENTATION COPY: "For Horace McCoy/ with admiration for 'They Shoot Horses, Don't they?'/ James Hilton/ Jan. 1941." Hilton authored the modern Utopian masterpiece LOST HORIZON (1933) as well as the beloved novel GOODBYE MR. CHIPS (1934). RANDOM HARVEST is no less brilliant and it is often cited as James Hilton's best written novel. It was memorably filmed in 1941, starring Ronald Colman and Greer Garson as two lovers thwarted by amnesia in the aftermath of the first World War, earning 7 Oscar Nominations including Best Picture. Horace McCoy's THEY SHOOT HORSES DON'T THEY? (published in 1934) is now regarded as one of the most striking and upsetting tales of the Great Depression, a novel which follows the desperate lives of a doomed group of Hollywood failures who seek their last hope in the winning of a dance marathon and its prize money. It was belatedly filmed in 1969, winning 9 Oscar nominations. For those who enjoy math, the film adaptations of RANDOM HARVEST and THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY? received a total of 17 Oscar nominations between them. An ideal association copy.

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

      Imprimerie Leon Sezanne, Lyon, 1941, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st Edition, Inscribed by Author(s)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 Quantity Available: 1. Category: Modern First Editions; Science; Inscribed by Author(s). Inventory No: anoh.

        Veterans and Other Poems

      Cuala Press, Dublin 1941 - Pages, 35. LIMITED EDITION number 107 of 270 copies. Set in Caslon type, and printed by Esther Ryan and Maire Gill on paper maed in Ireland and published by the Cuala Press, 133 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin. Finished in the second week of April, nineteen hundred and forty one.SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY. The inscription on title page reads: "Inscribed for Jack Hanlon Donagh MacDonagh May 1941". Presented by the author to the artist Father Jack Hanlon. Partially uncut at top edge of endpapers and title page. Rare. Donagh MacDonagh (1912-1968) was an Irish writer, judge, presenter, broadcaster, and playwright. He was born in Dublin. He was still a young child when his father Thomas MacDonagh, an Irish nationalist and poet, was executed in 1916. Tragedy struck again when his mother died of a heart attack a year afterwards while swimming at Skerries to Lambay, County Dublin in July 1917. The two children were then taken care of by their maternal aunts, in particular Catherine Wilson. His parents' families then engaged in a series of custody lawsuits, as the MacDonaghs were Roman Catholic and the Giffords were Protestant; in the climate of Ne Temere, the MacDonaghs were successful. He and his sister Barbara (who later married actor Liam Redmond) lived briefly with their paternal aunt Eleanor Bingham, County Clare before being put into the custody of strangers until their late teens, when they were taken in by Jack MacDonagh. He was married twice, to Maura Smyth and, following her death after she drowned in a bath whilst having an epileptic seizure, to her sister, Nuala Smyth. He had four children, Iseult & Breifne by Maura and Niall & Barbara by Nuala. He died on 1 January 1968 and is buried at Deans Grange Cemetery. MacDonagh was educated at Belvedere College and University College Dublin (UCD) with contemporaries Cyril Cusack, Denis Devlin, Charlie Donnelly, Brian O'Nolan, Niall Sheridan and Mervyn Wall. In 1935 he was called to the Bar and practised on the Western Circuit. In 1941 he was appointed a District Justice in County Mayo. He was Justice for the Dublin Metropolitan Courts at the time of his death He published three volumes of poetry: "Veterans and Other Poems" (1941), The Hungry Grass (1947) and A Warning to Conquerors (1968). He also edited the Oxford Book of Irish Verse (1958) with Lennox Robinson. He also wrote poetic dramas and ballad operas. One play, Happy As Larry, was translated into a number of languages. He had three other plays produced: God's Gentry (1951, a ballad opera about the tinkers), Lady Spider (1959, about Deirdre of the Sorrows and the Three sons of Ussna and by far his best writing) and Step in the Hollow a piece of situation comedy nonsense. He also wrote short stories; published Twenty Poems with Niall Sheridan; staged the first Irish production of ‘’Murder in the Cathedral’’ with Liam Redmond, later his brother-in-law; and was a popular broadcaster on Radio Éireann.

        Into Battle, inscribed by Churchill on his birthday, a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor, to his first cousin Clare Sheridan, "the nearest thing to a sister that Winston ever had"

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1941. First edition, seventh printing. Hardcover. This is the first volume of Churchill's war speeches, inscribed and dated to his first cousin Clare Sheridan, "the nearest thing to a sister that Winston ever had." The unusually personal inscription inked in black in four lines on the first free endpaper reads: "To Clare | from | Winston | November 30 . 1941". The date is Churchill's own birthday, just a week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Clare Consuelo Frewen Sheridan (1885-1970) was an accomplished sculptress and writer. Strong-willed, restless, fiercely independent, and intellectually curious, Clare shared many characteristics with her famous cousin, but lived a hedonistic, promiscuous life that was both financially and socially turbulent. Her cousin Winston was a presence throughout that life, as she was in his. Clare was the middle of three children born to Winston's Aunt Clara Jerome Frewen (1851-1935) and Moreton Frewen (the famously slipshod editor of Winston's first book). Clare was the only girl among the eight children born to the three famous Jerome sisters. In Clare's childhood, Winston was already a formidable presence. "Winston was a large schoolboy when I was still in the nursery... He filled me with awe." (Nuda Veritas, Clare Sheridan, p.14) Clare married Wilfred Sheridan in 1910. When their second daughter, born in 1913, died in her first year, "Clare was devastated and began her first attempts at sculpture to escape her grief." (Fortune's Daughters, p.302) Their only son Richard was born on 20 September 1915 and Wilfred was killed a few days later leading his men at the Battle of Loos. (FD, p.303) Winston wrote to Clare: "I know there is nothing I can write can ease a single throb of your immense sorrow, or soothe a moment of your loss. In the face of this terrible event I feel by how fond I am of you, how we have always been friends since you were a little tot... (Letter of 3 October 1915) Wilfred's death both devastated and released Clare; for the rest of her life she would make her living sculpting and writing. Clare and Winston's relationship was tested by her Bolshevik sympathies in the early 1920s, but endured. At the height of the war in 1942, Clare sculpted Winston. "...she came to him in the morning while he was still in bed... in the underground shelter, which had become the night-time annexe of the Prime Minister's residence... Clare grew frustrated trying to capture him, as he refused to keep still or to give up his cigar... but one morning managed to seize a few uninterrupted hours and finished the piece." (FD, p.378) Bronze versions of Clare's bust of Winston reside at Blenheim Palace, Chartwell, Harrow School, and Hastings Town Hall. A year after this inscription, Clare wrote to Winston: "You have pulled us through the dark tunnel into the light of dawn!" (8 November 1942 Letter from Clare to Winston). Into Battle contains speeches from May 1938 when Churchill was still out of favor and out of power, to November 1940, six months after Churchill became wartime Prime Minister. This inscribed volume is the first edition, seventh printing of July 1941. The volume is good condition, with superior contents. The blue cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners and only light wear to extremities, but marred by dark staining to the top, bottom, and fore edges of the front cover that looks almost like an artist's careless exposure of the book to paint overspray.

Clare apparently preserved the original dust jacket by pasting most of it within the book. The dust jacket front panel is affixed to the front pastedown, the front flap to the first free endpaper verso, and the rear panel to the second free endpaper recto. We have left the original binding intact, but a fine rebinding might be worthy of consideration. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A142.1.h, Woods/ICS A66(a.7), Langworth p.204

XXI + 709 Seiten / XVII+ 686 Seiten / XV+ 705 Seiten / XVII+ 685 Seiten; jeder Band mit zahlreichen, teilweise ausfaltbaren Faksimiles und sehr viele Abbildungen auf Kunstdrucktafeln sowie umfangreichem alphabetischem Namen-, Orts- und Sachverzeichnis, Schrift: Fraktur. - Luxuseinband, vierte, völlig neu bearbeitete Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung. - Aus dem Inhalt: 1. Band: Volk (800 - 1740) / 2. Band: Geist (1740 - 1813) / 3. Band: Staat (1814 - 1914) / 4. Band: Reich (1914 - 1940) und Generalregister sowie Literaturangaben zu allen vier Bänden. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14.- Außerordentlich schöne, wohlerhaltene Ausgabe in prächtigem Handeinband der Vorkriegszeit 0 Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 2000 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Leaf From the Kelmscott Chaucer. Together with a Monograph by Carl Purington Rollins

      Kelmscott Press and Philip Duschanes, Hammersmith and New York 1941 - Number 88 of 150 copies. Carl Purington Rollins was the head of the manufacturing department of the Yale University Press for over thirty years, starting in 1918. In that role he oversaw the design and production of over two thousand books and greatly influenced the standards of university presses nationally. This portfolio houses a handsome leaf from the great Kelmscott Chaucer along with an essay by Rollins on the history of the Chaucer and its enormous influence on fine printing. He describes the book as one of the greatest monuments of modern printing and unrivalled of its kind. This leaf is from pages 352-353 of Book III of Boethius de Consolatione Philosophie. It is not illustrated but has one 10-line initial, one 6-line initial, and twenty 3-line initials. It is printed in black with red section headings and side titles. In near fine condition. The essay, which is printed in Lutetia types on French Vidalon handmade paper, states that this leaf is from an incomplete copy of the Chaucer.

        The Last Tycoon (John Cheever's Copy)

      New York: Charles Scribner, 1941. First edition. Very good; lacking the jacket. Boards slightly soiled, spine lettering dulled. The typical offsetting to the pastedowns. This copy from the library of John Cheever, with his (rather small) ownership sticker on the front free endpaper. In both the Donaldson and Bailey biographies of Cheever, mention is made of the connections between Cheever and Fitzgerald; then too, one of Cheever's few forays into nonfiction was a brief biography he wrote of Fitzgerald for "Atlantic Brief Lives" (1971). The topic could be explored at length, but not here. A solid copy of this title, with the additional bonus of a resonant association between two masters of American short fiction. Provenance available upon request.
