        A Collection of Original Illustrated Artwork including New Yorker-related material

      A collection of original art, prints, and biographical material by or related to the Swiss-born artist Paul Degen (1941-2007), who created more than 30 original covers for The New Yorker, and countless illustrations for Harper's, Esquire, Atlantic Monthly and The New York Times. The collection is housed in three portfolios. The first portfolio contains 56 original works. A few are sketches, but most are fully realized and full color drawings or paintings. Most are apparently intended to be submitted for magazines, and several are clearly marked as intended to be New Yorker covers, although we cannot determine if they were ever used, and indeed are relatively certain they were at least not used in their current form. The first binder also contains 2 etchings by Degen. Sizes vary, and all of the works are Signed in full by the artist. The second portfolio contains 22 original works, all of a sexual or erotic nature. They range from relatively demure nudes to elaborately contrived, and indeed in some cases impossibly ambitious sexual images. Additionally in the second folder are 3 additional etchings, and 4 silk screens, some of which have been altered by hand, all on erotic or sexual subjects. As before, all are Signed in full. Also in the portfolio is some biographical material on Degen, including an article on the artist by Steven Heller. The third portfolio contains 49 original works, all also all of a sexual or erotic nature. These tend to be stand nude and nude studies with several more, lets says, fanciful erotic images. The images are produced in a range of medium -- pen and ink, charcoal, watercolors and gauche -- and a range of states, from simple sketches to finished images. And all are Signed by Degen. In all, nearly 129 original works. .

Inscribed in black ink on the front free endpaper in the year of publication: Demetrios / With best wishes / from / John Lehmann / 24 vii. 41". "John Lehmann played a significant role in bringing Between The Acts to publication. When Woolf felt the novel not worth publishing, she and Leonard agreed to give Lehmann the 'casting vote'. (VW Letters Vol. 6). Lehmann replied to her letter praising the novel however, she had decided it was 'too silly and trivial'. She committed suicide soon after writing this to Lehmann and in his memoir, Thrown To The Woolfs, Lehmann speaks of bringing the book out as a kind of homage to her". Hussey, Mark. An important association copy. Published July 1941. Kirkpatrick A26a; Woolmer 488. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        World War II Signal Corps Diary

      Monmouth, New Jersey / England. 1941-1942. A fascinating diary of 2nd Lieutenant Leslie Wright, Jr. while serving in the U.S. Army Signal Corps starting in September of 1941, just before the advent of the U.S. entry into WWII, at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, September 1942 where he was deployed overseas. The remarkable document describes the early days of the corps itself, the term "radar" having only just been accepted by the Army in 1940, along with a harrowing journey in a tiny convoy to England with minimal protection, and other personal accounts of his time during the war. Pasted within are stamps, various headlines, such as "U.S. to call up 10,000,000 -- war on Axis," and photographs of an assortment of women he made acquaintance with throughout his tour of duty. 24mo. Brown leatherette "A Page A Day Diary" with lock and clasp. Rubbed with some loose pages, very good. .

        Collection of 13 Typed Letters and one Autograph Letter, all signed ("Marty") to George Brown ("Flash"), who was Hemingway's and Martha's trainer, tennis partner, and friend

      Sun Valley, Idaho, San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, and one from Washington, D.C., on White House stationery, oct 18, 1941 - dec. 2, 1946. (HEMINGWAY, ERNEST) 4to. In all 16pp. Generally very good to fine. With two accompanying envelopes . A fascinating glimpse into the marriage of Martha Gellhorn and Ernest Hemingway in this series of letters from the journalist, war-time correspondent, novelist, and, for five years, the third wife of Ernest Hemingway - all but the final letter written while she and Hemingway were together. George Brown was their most athletic friend - Hemingway's boxing coach and personal trainer, Martha's tennis and shooting partner - and her letters are filled with humorous reports of their physical condition, orders for Brown's rubber reducing pants, etc. " ... our weights are fairly okay. I can't seem to get under 127 and Ernest can't get under 215 ... But we are definitely out of the stylish stout class, and into the husky category. I wish I were one of those delicate wan women, looking like a piece of transparent paper and able to eat a horse and still apear frail and tubercular ... " " ... I returned [from Europe] weighing 121 pounds, and feeling slightly more glamorous than Miss Dietrich. After two weeks at home I weigh 123-1/2 but am not going to gain more. Ernest on the other hand looks exactly like Toto the Gorilla, and weighs about 230 I think and that, plus his flowing white beard, has made him into a phenomenon ... " And again: "Ernest has a black and white beard and looks like Moses if Moses had been a seagoing man, and he weighs 234 pounds. He is so big around the middle that he has allmost gotten out of the human into the whale class ... It is of course ghastly for him to weigh so much but I don't know what to do about it; the only way he could lose would be to cut down on liquor and really take exercise and I guess only you can make him do that. And you are not here. So hell ... " At one point she speculates on rumors that Hemingway has a mistress: "He is now so sick of Tom Collinses that he has a tendency to be nauseated when he sees anything pale yellow. I see by the gossip columns that Ernest is supposed to have an unknown 19 year old Russian actress down here: he is taking picture of her himself, as a film test for the part of Maria. If she is here, God knows where she is keeping herself. I wish she would get out of the basement or wherever she is living and come upstairs ... "

        Some Chungking Types

      Shanghai, Kelly & Walsh, 1941 (first edition). - 1 volume in-quarto, 37 pages, hard cover, internally fine. A wonderful set of Doris' sketches in Chungking Province, including The Cooton Yarn Worker, The Peddling Haberdasher, The Comb seller, The Letter Writer and Fortune Teller, the Portable Hat Shop. A very rare book by Doris Worcester who was an artist, excelling in pastel and water colours. She and her husband were prisoners of the Japanese during the second Word War. She died in 1945 after release from the Japanese concentration camp in Shanghai. A Publishers'note in the second edition of this book ( Hong kong, Vetch & Lee, 1970) indicates that this first edition ( 1941) was printed in Shanghai, but before it could be put on sale, the Japanese seized the International Settlement Of Shanghai and this edition was destroyed. There-fore this edition is very valuable. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit Initialen.

      O. O., 24. VII. 1941. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "J'ai eu beaucoup de travail et en supplément peu agréable une fermeture dans les oreilles qui m'a fait passer de mauvais moments. Cela commence à s'arranger. Nous partons la semaine prochaine chez Ch. Munch qui nous a très gentiment invité dans sa maison [.] pres de Montfort. Cela fera un petit changement d'air [.] Vous avez vu que j'ai eu la faiblesse d'accepter le poste de critique a Comedia et cela a absorbé toutes mes possibilités d'ecrivain [.]". - Erwähnt auch den unerwarteten Tod des Komponisten Philippe Gaubert, der am 8. Juli des Jahres in Paris verstorben war: "Je l'ai vue deux jours avant à la répétition de son ballet, cela m'a fait de la peine car c'était un bon ami et il sera difficile à remplacer à l'Opéra [.]".

        Autograph letter signed, in German, to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch

      1941 - "You Have Always Been the one Dearest to Me in the Entire Family"Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph letter signed, in German, to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch (d. 1941). 1 page. N.p., n.d. [Princeton, 1941?]. 278 x 211 mm. Evidence of folding, 2 faint rust spots, but very good."It is always a great joy to us when we hear from you and about you. You have always been the one dearest to me in the entire family. I am not surprised that you are still able to maintain in such times your inner equilibrium and that you remain such a pillar of moral strength for your family. Recently, when [Caesar's daughter and Einstein's cousin] Alice visited us, we thought of you with special warmth, and I only wish that we could meet one more time in this strange world [translation]."Einstein's wish was not granted, as Koch died a few months after receiving this letter. The form of the signature used in the letter--"deinem Albert" (your Albert)--is quite unusual, but it is the same as the one Einstein used in his youthful 1895 letter to Koch.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Zülow").

      Hirschbach, 30. XII. 1941. - 1½ SS. Gr.-4to. An Herrn Lechner: "[.] Mein Sohn teilte mit etwas verspätet von Deinem Anruf mit. Er sagte mir, dass es sich um den keramischen Fries 'Brigittakirtag' handelt und um eine Ausstellung desselben u. a. m. Er hätte Dich auch nicht deutlich gehört, wie das manchmal im Telefon vorkommt. Ich bitte Dich daher wenn möglich um kurze schriftliche Nachricht, da ich jetzt längere Zeit nicht nach Wien komme. Ich bin ab 5. Jänner wieder in Unken bei Lofer (Kaffee Wimmer) Salzburg, weil ich dort einen dringenden Auftrag von der N. S. V. zu erledigen habe. Den Fries habe ich vor einigen Monaten bei den Wienerbergern fertiggestellt. Die Wienerberger wollten ihn auch auf der Messe ausstellen und wenn er jetzt nicht an Ort und Stelle, wo er hingehört montiert werden kann, glaube ich, ist nichts gegen eine vorherige Ausstellung desselben einzuwenden [.]". - Franz von Zülow war seit 1908 Mitglied der Klimt-Gruppe, trat 1933 der Secession und 1939 dem Künstlerhaus bei und wurde 1946 Ehrenmitglied der (neuen) Secession. Sein Werk umfaßt Ölbilder, Entwürfe für Tapeten und Stoffe, Holz- und Linolschnitte sowie Wand- und Möbelmalereien. Vgl. Thieme/B. 36 583f.

        Evil Under The Sun - in correct first issue wrapper

      Collins [The Crime Club] 1941 - A first edition, first printing published by Collins (Crime Club) in 1941. A very good+ book without inscriptions and no foxing. Boards a little faded to the spine and a little grubbiness to the board edges. In a very good+ (or better) unclipped wrapper (showing 7s 6d as called for) with a little rubbing and wear to the spine tips and corners. This was the last of the 'semi-thick' editions produced by Collins before the War saw the production of Collins first editions printed on thinner paper and bound similarly thinner than this. A very rare Hercule Poirot to find in a collectable wrapper and rare to find without chipping - as with most of the copies advertised. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
