        Holy Communion

      NY: Harlem Friendship House News. [c. 1941-1948]. A broadside poem by "Tom Merton." Published by the Friendship House, a missionary movement dedicated to interracial justice where Merton volunteered for two weeks in 1941 before journeying to the Abbey of Gethsemani. The Friendship House News became the Catholic Interracialist in 1949, hence the above date range. Fragile and edge-chipped, not affecting text. "Holy Communion" was collected in In the Dark Before Dawn: New Selected Poems of Thomas Merton in 2005, but it is not mentioned at all in Dell'Isola's Thomas Merton: A Bibliography, which was published seven years after Merton's death. We have never seen another copy. OCLC lists only one copy, at SUNY Buffalo, albeit with an incorrect estimated date. Rare. First Edition.

        MACHZOR LE’ROSH HASHANAH VE’YOM KIPPUR, SHENATH 5702 [PRAYER BOOK FOR NEW YEAR AND DAY OF ATONEMENT, 1941]

      Toulouse, No Publisher (The Author). 1941. Paperback. 1st edition. Mimeograph sheets. Loose as issued. Folio, 10 pages. Square Hebrew letters with nikud (vowel points) . The colophon reads in Hebrew: ?"Joshua Bindiger, Toulouse. ?" In French was added, ?"Rue Belle Paule 11?". Pp. 10 (all published) . Soon after the outbreak of the Second World War, foreign-born Jews, especially recent refugees from Germany and Austria, were summarily arrested and interned by the French government in bleak detention camps in South-Western France. Suffering under severe conditions and quite cut off from the outside world, some enterprising inmates of the camps succeeded in clandestinely producing - from memory- this mimeograph edition of the Festival liturgy. A more well-known example of this genre is the Gurs Haggadah (see B. Gutterman, The Gurs Haggadah: Passover in Perdition, 2003) . The present High Holiday Prayer Book was handwritten by Joshua Bindiger and then mimeographed. Yerushalmi provides in facsimile the final page of the more common Hagadah, written by the same individual and issued under the aegis of ?"S. R. Kapel, Rabbin de Mulhouse, Aumonier des Camps, Toulouse?" [Yerushalmi, Haggadah, plate 162]. Exceedingly rare. Searching OCLC/Worldcat, British OPAC, The French National Library, and the library catalogs of the Wiener Library, the Imperial War Museum, the Bibliotheque du Toulouse, and others, we could locate not a single copy of this prayerbook in any library or archive anywhere. According to our research, it has been offered for sale only once at auction or in the trade in the past 70 years. Formerly housed in sheaths in 3-ring binder, with slight edgewear (not holes) where sheaths touched rings; otherwise Very Good Condition. (holo2-122-61) xx .
