        Hand signed autograph letter by Albert Einstein (HA auctions) -Make an Offer

      Guaranteed Authenticity by Heritage Auctions (HA sales)Einstein admires that his cousin, who has come to San Francisco from Nazi Germany via Russia, China, and Japan, is able to write down his experiences in English ("I certainly could not do that"), telling him he does not have to repay the money Einstein gave him for the trip.Albert Einstein Typed Letter Signed "Albert," one page, 8.5" x 11". Princeton, New Jersey, October 23, 1941. In German with full English translation, embossed at top center with his name and "112, Mercer Street" address. To an unidentified cousin. The name "Otto Nathan" and his New York City address has been penned in red at the lower left in an unknown hand. Nathan, Princeton economics professor, was the sole executor of Einstein's estate after the scientist's death in 1955 and was co-trustee of his literary property along with Einstein's secretary, Helen Dukas. In full "I am happy to learn from your letters that you are getting along fine and adjusting well to your new environment. I know that it is hard to find work at our age. I admire your ability to know the language so well that you can write down your experiences in English. I most certainly could not do that. Please do not give back the money that I have given you for the trip. It could not have been spent in a better way, and I am happy about that. Please do not mention it anymore and forget about it. Heartfelt greetings and wishes to all of you." Einstein's cousin had left Germany and came to San Francisco via Russia, China, and Japan. He later wrote a series of articles published in the San Francisco Chronicle, "Exodus from Mizrahim," about his experiences. In his letters to Einstein, he most probably told his cousin that he was writing about his trip in English. Four light stains and folds, none touching Einstein's signature. Einstein family letters signed "Albert" are virtually unobtainable.

        The War Speeches, a full set of seven British first editions - Into Battle, The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, and Secret Session Speeches

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1941. First edition. Hardcover. Here is an exceptional set of British first edition, first printings of Winston Churchill's seven war speeches volumes. This set features near fine or better volumes in near fine dust jackets. It has become quite difficult to assemble jacketed, first printing sets in such condition. Few books are as emblematic of Churchill's literary and leadership gifts as his war speeches volumes. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of note - Member of Parliament for more than half a century, soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner, painter. But Churchill's preeminence as a historical figure owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." When Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953, it was partly “…for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. The British first editions are visually striking, but were printed on cheap wartime paper, bound in coarse cloth, and wrapped in bright, fragile dust jackets. They proved highly susceptible to spotting, soiling, and fading, so the passage of time has been hard on most surviving first editions. This set is a noteworthy exception. The blue cloth bindings remain tight and clean with bright spine gilt and only trivial wear to extremities. The contents are unusually bright throughout the set. We find no previous ownership marks in any of the volumes. The spotting endemic to these first editions appears confined to the page edges of the first volume and the page edges and first and final leaves of the fourth and fifth volumes. The Unrelenting Struggle is also first state, denoted by irregular pagination at page 281. Victory is likewise first state, denoted by p.177 misprinted as “77”. The first and final volumes are of special note. Into Battle has the most vividly bright and complete dust jacket we have been able to offer in many years, with a beautifully bright book beneath suffering only a bit of page edge spotting. Secret Session Speeches is likewise a superlative copy, with beautifully fine book beneath a complete and unusually bright dust jacket. All seven first printing dust jackets retain unusually bright spines. All dust jackets except The Unrelenting Struggle retain the original publisher's prices on the lower front flaps. All seven dust jackets are complete apart from fractional chipping to a few extremities. Modest soiling, primarily to the white rear faces of the dust jackets, trivial wear to hinges and extremities, and a tiny, stray ink mark to the front face of Victory jacket do not compromise the exceptional shelf presentation and overall caliber of this set. All seven dust jackets are newly fitted with removable, archival quality clear covers.

Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket, unclipped ($2.50), slightly chipped at head and tail, creased closed tear at top of back panel, lightly worn along edges. Former owner's name written on front free endpaper.Burnham was a one-time Trotskyist who officially rejected dialectical materialism not long before publishing this book, an acclaimed critique of the worldwide authoritarianism that precipitated WWII. Burnham along with many other ex-communists like Daniel Bell and Dwight Macdonald would help inluence mainstream American cold war thought immensely, forming a consensus view that was mistrustful of totalitarianism in all forms, interventionist, capitalist, and much more pragmatic than it has generally been given credit for being.

        Original Cartoon Drawing Signed, pen and wash, on a 3.5 x 5.5 inch board, docketed on verso "1941." Unpublished as far as our research indicates

      - Addams has drawn a humorous cartoon of a presumably naked hunter bathing in a lake surprised by a moose, close up. The moose's expression shows disapproval. The hunter, surprised, drops his soap in the lake. His shoes, hat and gun lay beside the lake. Addams signs in the lower left, "Chas Addams." Full docketing on verso: "Dec. 9, 1941" in pencil; "Sent Nov.12, 1941, Rec'd Dec. 9, 1941" in ink, both in another hand. A fine early cartoon ideal for a cartoon caption contest. Addams created the characters that became known as The Addams Family, the basis for two live-action television series, two cartoon series, and many motion pictures. He also created a syndicated comic strip, "Out of This World," which ran in 1956.

This non-pornographic piece must have disappointed publishers anticipating something more lurid from Miller afer his "Tropic of Cancer" because ten New York publishers rejected it before Colt Press accepted it with an advance of only 100 USD [Shifreen & Jackson A26b]. INSCRIBED -- "TO TAMAR, THE FLAMING MEDEA OF BIG SUR WHO IMPROVISES 'UNITS' AND ISLANDS OF FOG AND SEA ANEMONES. HENRY MILLER. 4/2/44." The recipient is, perhaps, Robinson Jeffers who, though not a friend of Miller's, was a fellow inhabitant of Big Sur and whose most famous poem is titled "Tamar." Or more likely, though a bit disturbingly, it is perhaps inscribed to Tamar Nais Hodel, who was named for the poem and was the young daughter of Miller's friend and fellow inhabitant of Big Sur, Dr. George Hill Hodel -- a suspect in the infamous 1947 "Black Dahlia" murder and mutilation of Elizabeth Short. Tamar Hodel would have been around 9 years old at the time of the inscription, a tender young age to receive an inscribed book from a friend of ones father. But this was a father who allowed Man Ray to take nude pictures of her when she was 11 years old and whom she accused at 14 of sexual molesting her beginning when she was 11. (He was acquitted and fled the country soon after.) Name at base of front endpaper, cloth at spine ends and corners slightly frayed, general light cover wear, front hinge repaired where previously loose otherwise good to very good, lacking dust jacket. .

        The man who loved children (First edition; Florence James' and Christina Stead's copy)

      London : Peter Davies, 1941. First U.K. edition. Octavo, red cloth boards (upper board lightly marked), the personal copy of both Florence James (19 David St. Mosman) and later Christina Stead (Camberley, Surrey), the ownership signatures of both women on the front free endpaper, 480 pp (edges flecked), a well read copy, housed in a quarter blue morocco and blue cloth clamshell box. A highly important association copy of Christina Stead's most acclaimed novel. The New Zealand-born writer and literary agent Florence James had settled in Sydney in 1920, where she met and became a close friend of Christina Stead while the pair were studying English Literature at Sydney University. In the late twenties Stead and James spent time together in London and Paris, a formative period in the lives of both women. James married William 'Pym' Heyting in 1932, and is perhaps best remembered as the co-author with Dymphna Cusack of Come in Spinner (1951). She was also the model for Stead's eponymous character in her late novel, Miss Herbert (1976). The copy of The man who loved children which we offer here is in some respects the ultimate copy of Stead's most acclaimed novel: not only did it originally belong to her dear friend Florence James, but it subsequently passed back into the author's own hands, a tangible record of how Stead's brilliant literary achievement was cherished and shared in one of Stead's most important personal relationships.
