      New York: Viking Press 1941 - A true first edition in a first edition first issue dust jacket, with First Published August 1941 stated on the copyright page and no mention of the Caldecott Medal on the front flap of the dust jacket.

A near fine book in a very good dust jacket with a small chip at the top of the spine, as shown in the photograph. Housed in a custom-made collector's clamshell case with leather spine with gold gilt lettering and decoration. Perhaps the rarest, most important and most desired of all the Caldecotts. A remarkably scarce book, read to death by or to children, and especially beloved in Boston, where the ducks are commemorated in bronze statues in the Public Garden.

        o. T. [Flüchtlinge]. Oel auf Leinwand.

      1941 1941 - 45 x 27 cm, Links unten monogr. u. dat. FM 1941. - Frans Masereel (1889-1972) bedeutender belgischer Grafiker, Zeichner und Maler, enger Freund von Stefan Zweig, der vor allem für seine beeindruckenden, von starken Emotionen geprägten Holzschnitte bekannt ist. Er vertrat in seiner Kunst einen konsequenten Humanismus. Er stellte die Menschen in ihrer Verlorenheit und Verlassenheit in der modernen Zivilisation dar, ohne indessen als Pessimist gelten zu können. Denn gleichzeitig lieferte er Beispiele für Handlungsmöglichkeiten, um dem Menschlichen in einer sich entmenschlichenden Welt den ihm gebührenden Platz zu sichern. Beispiele hierfür sind die 80 Holzschnitte ?Das Gesicht Hamburgs? oder die 100 Holzschnitte des Zyklus ?Die Stadt? (1925). 1919 erschien seine Folge von 167 Holzschnitten ?Mein Stundenbuch?, die in Deutschland 1920 von Kurt Wolff verlegt wurde.Eine Freundschaft verband ihn mit Henry Gowa, der ihn nach Saarbrücken holte, wo er von 1947 bis 1951 die Meisterklasse für Malerei an der neugegründeten Schule für Kunst und Handwerk leitete.Frans Masereel regte am 26. September 1953 gemeinsam mit den deutschen Künstlern HAP Grieshaber, Erich Heckel, Gerhard Marcks, Ewald Mataré, Otto Pankok, Max Pechstein, Karl Rössing und anderen in Zürich an, die ?XYLON Societé Internationale des Graveurs sur Bois? zu gründen. Diese Gründung der Internationalen Vereinigung der Holzschneider XYLON wurde beschlossen und Masereel war ihr erster Präsident.1956 schuf er ein weiteres großes Holzschnittwerk, 100 Blätter unter dem Titel ?Mijn Land? 1964 erhielt Masereel den Kulturpreis des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbundes.Eine Dauerausstellung von Masereel-Werken gibt es im Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee bei Antwerpen. 3000 gr.

        Dilo Jana Zrzaveho (The Work of Jan Zrzavy) 1906-1940

      Prague: Umelecka beseda & Druzstveni prace 1941 - 4to, cloth, 312 pages, in an edition of 1000, with a signed lithograph by Zrzavy, numerous color tipped in reproductions and b/w photo reproductions, in dust jacket. A catalogue raisonné of the work of Zrzavy to date, this book also was a strong rallying-point of Czech national pride under the oppression of the German occupation and dismemberment of the country. Jan Zrzavy (1890-1977) was one of the strong personalities of the Czech modern art world. He lived through and participated in many of the Czech movements, beginning with Sursum in 1910 through Devetsil and thereafter stood out as an isolated individual pursuing his own path away from the avant-garde movements of constructivism and surrealism. He was tolerated under both the Nazis and communists, largely because they found his work politically inoffensive, but they failed to understand the strong undercurrent of his championing a spiritual and especially Czech spiritual mentality and he, like the illustrator Josef Lada, came to represent what many Czechs like to consider unique to themselves. At the point this book was published, Zrzavý had executed a portrait of Karel Hynek Mácha, the famous Bohemian poet of the 19th century who was seen to rescue the Czech language from near-extinction. This image became a clandestine point of power and furthered a will to survive under continued denigrating circumstances. The book had a similar value to the reading public. This is a rare book, in very good condition overall, with a clipped upper dust wrapper. 2500.00 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Time Exposure

      London & New York: B. T. Batsford Ltd., & Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1941. With a Commentary and Captions by Peter Quennell. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine gilt, orange topstain.

Covers a touch faded with a few faint marks, corners rubbed, but a very good copy, internally bright and fresh. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by Cecil Beaton on the front free endpaper to his close friend Ruth Ford, "For Ruth, love Cecil". As much a socialite as an actress, Ford knew (and, reportedly, introduced) everybody, and was one of Beaton's frequent photographic subjects. She has in this copy bookmarked the photographs in which she appears in this book.

        UN CANTO PARA BOLIVAR

      [Mexico City]: [Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México], 1941. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Original stiff wraps in glassine (as issued). Glassine toned with some chipping at spine, mild soil here and there. Some minor bumping to corners. Front hinge a little tender. Pages unopened along top edge. Very good overall. Limited edition, one of 500 unnumbered copies. With drawings and vignettes by Julio Prieto. INSCRIBED by Neruda: "para / Mercedes de Acosta / afectuoso [indecipherable, possibly "recuerdo"] de / Pablo Neruda / 1943 New York." [16]pp. Handsomely letter-pressed poem printed on the occasion of Neruda's Bolivar Ampitheater reading at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México on July 24th, 1941, the 111th anniversary of Bolivar's death. Inscribed to writer and gay pioneer Mercedes de Acosta. Acosta was a writer, poet, novelist, and dramatist, but is perhaps best remembered today for her relationship with Greta Garbo, as well as for her 1960 memoir HERE LIES THE HEART which at the time was groundbreaking for its (admittedly veiled) acknowledgement of her sexuality and relationships. It went on the become something of an underground classic and two recent biographies have revived critical interest in her life and work. An interesting association. [Becco 68].

        Into Battle

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1941. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. This is a superior copy of the first edition of the first volume of Churchill's famous war speeches. 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. 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, painter, Nobel Prize winner. 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." Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. In this first war speeches volume the great battle of the Twentieth Century and Churchill's life begins. There were twelve printings of this edition. Here is the first printing, first state (identified by Churchill bibliographer Ronald Cohen as missing pagination on pages 78 and 294). The binding is a smoother blue cloth variant, which in our experience is exclusively associated with the first state of the first printing. The British first editions of Churchill's wartime speech volumes 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, fading, and wear, so the passage of time shows on most surviving first editions. Condition of this copy is near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with bright gilt and only trivial wear to extremities. The contents remain crisp and bright. The book definitively feels unread. Spotting is primarily confined to prelims and page edges. The sole previous ownership mark is a vintage decorative "Book Society" plate affixed to the first free endpaper, but with the name space remaining blank. The dust jacket is the correct first printing (with unique text on the front flap differentiating the first printing dust jacket from all 11 subsequent printings). The dust jacket is exceptional both for completeness and for an unusually bright, wholly unfaded spine. The front flap is unclipped, retaining the original price. We note mild spotting to the white rear face, a trivial hint of wear at the spine ends and corners, and a small scratch to the lower spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A142.1.a, Woods/ICS A66(a.1), Langworth p.204.

      Praia, Minerva de Cabo Verde, 1941. - 48 pp., (2 ll.). 8°, Original printed wrappers (upper and lower edges frayed, spine defective at head and foot). Internally fine; overall in good to very good condition. Author's signed and dated presentation inscription on recto of front free endleaf: "Ao Exmº Sr. Coman? // dante M.A. Ferrez // ? Com os comprimentos de // Jorge Barbosa // Stª Maria da // Ilha de Sal, 11/8/942." ---- FIRST EDITION of Barbosa's second collection of verse; rare. Born in Cidade da Praia in 1902 (he died in 1971), Barbosa worked as a customs and municipal official in Cabo Verde while simultaneously pursuing a distinguished literary career. With his first poetry collection, @Arquipélago (Praia, 1935), he introduced a new and distinctive Cabo Verdean poetry, no longer imitative of European forms. The following year, Barbosa joined with the writers Manuel and João Lopes and Baltasar Lopes da Silva to found the pioneering Cabo Verdean literary journal @Claridade: "It can truly be said that Cape Verdean literature is divided into two periods: before and after @Claridade" (Moser & Ferreira). Barbosa's later verse collection, @Caderno de um Ilhéu (Lisbon, 1956), was awarded the first Prémio de Poesia Camilo Pessanha by the Agência do Ultramar. ---- Moser & Ferreira, @Bibliografia das literaturas africanas de expressão portuguesa pp. 129-30 and 138-9.

        RANDOM HARVEST (First UK Edition in Dust Jacket Inscribed to Jean Hersholt)

      London: Macmillan, 1941. Hilton, James. RANDOM HARVEST. London: Macmillan, 1941. First English Edition, first impression. A FINE, bright copy in publisher's green cloth gilt, in the original publisher's priced dust jacket (large chip at top panel affecting several letters in the title but otherwise complete and sharp and Very Good with eye appeal). Extremely uncommon in dust jacket. Even more remarkable is the fact that this copy, an unlikely survivor as it was literally being published in Britain while London was enduring its World War 2 Battle Of Britain blitz, is a PRESENTATION COPY, the only one we know to exist. The recipient was Jean Hersholt (1886-1956), well-known Hollywood character actor (the grandfather in the 1937 Shirley Temple film HEIDI, for example) who appeared in 140 movies and had his own television series during the 1950s. He was also a great believer in helping others in need. His energy created the Motion Picture Relief fund and it is entirely due to his efforts that the Motion Picture Country Home and Hospital was built to house elderly and impoverished former Hollywood employees. The Writer's Guild of America offers a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award each year to that individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry. Hilton's inscription to Hersholt reads: "For Jean Hersholt with warmest regards and admiration, James Hilton, Nov. 1943" and the book bears Hersholt's distinctive book plate on the front paste-down. RANDOM HARVEST was Hilton's best written book, despite the greater fame of his LOST HORIZON and GOODBYE MR. CHIPS. It was the winner of numerous awards and accolades, and its film adaptation starring Greer Garson and Ronald Colman has been named by the American Film Institute as one of the greatest 100 love stories in the history of the movies. The novel was one of the very first to address shell shock and amnesia and its particular tale of a man who loses his memory during battle, then makes a new life and finds new love after WWI, only to lose it all when he regains his real self, is one of those rare tales that is emotionally powerful and yet avoids all the usual romantic love story conventions. Reading it today, or seeing the film, reminds us how enduring and endearing Hilton's story has remained all these years. Housed in a custom half-morocco slipcase.. Signed. First English Edition. Fine/Very Good.

        The War Speeches - full set of seven British first editions finely bound in half morocco over marbled boards - Into Battle, The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, Secret Session Speeches

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1941-1946. First edition, first printing. Leather_bound. Here is a finely bound British first edition set of Churchill's seven 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, painter, Nobel Prize winner. 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." 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. Here is a beautiful alternative to original bindings. Here are seven British first editions, bound in uniform burgundy red morocco over marbled boards. The bindings feature raised spine bands, gilt spine decoration and print, and double blind rule transitions. All contents are first edition, first printing. Of note, the beautifully crisp contents of Into Battle are not only first printing, but first state (denoted by pagination missing at pages 78 & 294) and Victory is likewise first state, with page 177 mispaginated. The bindings are in flawless condition with no signs of wear or use. The contents are bright with no previous ownership marks. The spotting endemic to the cheap, wartime paper is mostly confined to page edges and the prelims of the sixth volume. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A142.1.a, A172.1.b, A183.1.a, A194.1.a, A214.1.a, A223.1.a, A227.2.a; Woods/ICS A66(a.9), A89(a.2), A94(a.2), A101(a.3), A107(a.1), A112(aa), A114(b); Langworth pages 204, 213, 218, 223, 228, 234, 250.

As told to V. S. 'Pete' Hidy. Foreword by V. S. Hidy. Introduction by Reuben R. Cross. Laid-in is a three page holograph letter to a friend and member of The Angler's Club of New York. The letter is dated February 15, 1944 and Mr. Leisenring instructs his friend on how best to employ the leader wallets he made for him [shown in pencil in the photo diagrams]. And he goes on to point out to the club member how to select the best chicken feathers for tying wet flies. Mr. Leisenring says he would like very much to see the nymphs sent to the club member by G. E. M. Skues: 'Yes I would like to come down sometime and meet you. I saw Hidy last week he told me you had a set of Skues nymphs illustrating Skues book Nymph Fishing for Chalk Stream Trout. I would like to have a good look at the materials he uses as to the colour.I have had the book and the colour plate in the front is exquisite but those colours don't mean a thing that is why I would like to see your set that Pete says you got from him and have a good look at the colours and materials so when I come down [I] can make some notes.' The master work on tying and fishing the wet fly. The book is bound in beige cloth with black titles. James Leisenring letters are rare and this letter particularly illuminating because it brings together through correspondence the two world masters on wet flies and nymphs, Jim Leisenring and G. E. M. Skues. The book is bound in its original beige cloth with black titles. Spine a little age-toned otherwise very good. The letter is in fine condition with folds and comes with the original mailing envelope.
