        SAINT'S VACATION, THE (1941)

      RKO 1941 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Hugh Sinclair, Sally Gray, Cecil Parker, Arthur Macrae, dir: Leslie Fenton; RKO. Bold graphics and color highlight this outstanding poster entry for the RKO series featuring Leslie Charteris character Simon Templar, aka The Saint. For this outing, the seventh in the series, Charteris wrote the screenplay and the lead role which had been played to that point by George Sanders was taken over by Hugh Sinclair. This film was a departure as it was the first movie made under RKO's newly formed British company, and therefore the British cast and crew. The company was formed to utilize funds frozen by the British government "Films Act." The movie was shot at the D and P Studios, Denham, Buckinghamshire, England. In this story, The Saint vacations to Switzerland and become involved in solving a mystery concerning a music box. Though the production values were lesser, this had one of the strongest scripts in the series. On linen, NEAR FINE.

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

      1941. <p>"You Have Always Been the one Dearest to Me in the Entire Family"</p><p>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.</p><p.Einstein&#39;s last letter to his favorite uncle, his mother&#39;s younger brother Caesar Koch. Koch had long held a special place in Einstein&#39;s affections; in 1895, when Einstein was still in his teens, he sent Koch one of his first scientific manuscripts, titled "Über die Untersuchung des Ätherzustandes im magnetischen Felde" (On the examination of the state of the ether in a magnetic field), together with a cover letter announcing his intent to go to the ETH in Zurich (see Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 130). Koch, a widely traveled grain merchant, eventually settled in Antwerp; in 1941 he was in his mid-eighties, but still very much in Einstein&#39;s thoughts:</p><p>"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&#39;s daughter and Einstein&#39;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]."</p><p>Einstein&#39;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.</p>

        Astounding Science Fiction / April 1941 / American and British Editions / "Reason" (Isaac Asimov); "Microcosmic God" (Theodore Sturgeon)

      New York: Street & Smith Publications, 1941. New York: Street & Smith Publications, 1941 New York: Street & Smith Publications, 1941. First Editions, one each of both the American and (shorter) British editions. Both Octavo, both illustrated wraps. American Edition, 162 numbered pages, better than Very Good, not quite Near Fine. British Edition, 64 pages. Very Good. See scans for a clearer idea. A seminal and oddly scarce issue of the memorable Astounding Science Fiction fiction periodical, which carried the first appearance of many stories. Notable among those in this issue was the first appearance of Isaac Asimov&#39;s "Reason" a very early robot&#39;s-emerging-awareness tale which has earned its own wiki article, L. Sprague De Camp&#39;s "The Stolen Dormouse", which was the feature story here (see scans of cover), A.E. Van Vogt&#39;s "Not the First" and Theodore Sturgeon&#39;s "Microcosmic God" (&#39;novelette&#39; length, and recognized as one of the best science fiction stories of all time by the Science Fiction Writers of America in 1970, as well as in various later polls). Also in this issue: Kurt von Rachen&#39;s "The Mutineers" (also &#39;novelette&#39; length), Harry Walton&#39;s "The Scrambler", Malcolm Jameson&#39;s "Slacker&#39;s Paradise" and P. Schuyler Miller&#39;s "Bird Walk". NOTE: The shorter British edition included carries only the Asimov, De Camp, Sturgeon and Miller pieces - hence its shorter-ness. An apparently hard-to-find number from one of the beacon periodicals of the Golden Age of science fiction. (see also, under our Science fiction and sci/fi fantasy original art categories, the original artwork by noted illustrator John Grossman, titled "Microcosmic God", though that was executed several years later than this issue and was either an homage or an illustration for a later printing).

        You & Me "Toi et Moi

      , 1941 1941. Full Morocco. Near Fine. A stylish twentieth century version of the illuminated manuscript, which honors the tradition while not slavishly hewing to its Medieval ornamentation. 8vo. 17.5 by 11.5 cm. Unpaginated, 64 pp. Rendered on vellum leaves. Contains 31 poems, translated from the French, by Paul Geraldy. The beautiful calligraphy is rendered primarily in black, with red used for most titles and gilt reserved for the most salient titles. Most extraordinary, though, are the many vignette illustrations and ornaments of birds, butterflies, seraphs, flowers, stars, masks and shells. These are integrated seamlessly with the text. They somehow manage to exhude a charisma without a wisp of vulgarity, and their effect is bound to be sheer intoxication.The anthology of naive, or deliberately simple, poems, "Toi et Moi" first appeared in 1912. Dedicated to Lisbet Marx, who was the original owner of the manuscript and might have commissioned it.Minor rubbing to the spine bands. Clean, bright and tight otherwise.

        RANDOM HARVEST (First Edition, Inscribed to Horace McCoy, referencing his admiration for McCoy&#39;s masterpiece: "They Shoot Horses, Don&#39;t They?")

      Boston: Little, Brown, 1941. Boston: Little, Brown, 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 &#39;They Shoot Horses, Don&#39;t they?&#39;/ 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&#39;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&#39;s THEY SHOOT HORSES DON&#39;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&#39;T THEY? received a total of 17 Oscar nominations between them. An ideal association copy. . Inscribed By Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.
