        Vertical. A Yearbook for Romantic-Mystic Ascensions

      New York: Gotham Bookmart Press,, 1941. Octavo. Original black cloth, white paper title label to spine, design by Alexander Calder gilt stamped to upper board, red topstain, fore-edge untrimmed. With the original glassine wrapper. Three black and white illustrations by André Masson. Unobtrusive chip to title label, but otherwise a fine copy in the wrapper chipped at the extremities. First edition, first printing. One of 100 copies, and signed by Eugene Jolas, one of the great manifesto-makers of the modernist period. This book is the culmination of his project of Verticalism, which he describes in the foreword as "a romantic, cosmological and mystic theory of ascent". Jolas was intensely involved with the literary scene of pre-War Paris (though he fled to his native America when the Nazis invaded France), and along with Samuel Beckett was a staunch supporter of the linguistic revolution that he saw brewing in Joyce's divisive project Finnegans Wake. This volume collects those European and American authors and artists who, in Jolas's eyes, were attempting to, "establish an ascending direction in an integration of the telluric and the marvellous by means of a brotherhood of initiates of the numinous". This brotherhood includes Guillaume Apollinaire, Georges Bataille, Kay Boyle, Paul Claudel, Richard Eberhart, Léon-Paul Fargue, Ralph Gustafson, Pierre-Jean Jouve, Dallas Kenmare, Oscar Milosz, and Patrice de la Tour du Pin.

        Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

      Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1941. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. Classic collaboration with text by Agee and images by Evans. A fair only copy that has evidence of moisture staining to the fore edge and about 2 inch wide band throughout but with none of the pages sticking together and also to the edges of the boards in an about fair price clipped dust jacket that has the same corresponding moisture stain and some small chips and tears as well. An affordable alternative that despite the flaws is a serviceable copy. (Parr & Badger v1 144: Roth 1018-109)

        ORIGINAL ART Accomplished When Plath Was 8 and 9 Years Old

      1941 and 1942. Autograph. The first and third show some foxing (the latter with one closed edge tear); the second some even acidification. Very Good and most unusual. Three pencil drawings, executed when Plath was eight and nine years old, shortly after the death of her father, Otto, in 1940. It was at this young age that Plath first retreated into the worlds of both poetry and art: her first poem was published in THE BOSTON HERALD in 1941, the same year that a drawing of hers, of a plump lady in a feathered hat, won a dollar prize in another newspaper contest. Plath has claimed that it was her mother's reading Matthew Arnold's "The Forsaken Merman" to her that sparked her poetic imagination, and the first drawing here, "Mer-maid Land," is an underwater scene of a mermaid, fish and castle, with the mermaid shown again, larger, on a fold-over leaf. SIGNED "Sylvia July 20, 1941." In 1941, Plath was flower girl at her Aunt Dorothy's wedding; in 1942 she performed the same role for her Uncle Frank. The second drawing is of a bride, in profile, in wedding dress, and is SIGNED "Sylvia" and dated "1942" by Plath's mother, Aurelia. The final drawing, of a woman preparing to curtsey, is described on the verso by Plath's mother: "Sylvia drew this to illustrate the costume planned for the Minuet Group in the Pageant given May 1942. Sylvia was in the group." Aurelia (presumably) has also written "Keep" on the front. This drawing is also in pencil, but with the costume colored in orange crayon. The first drawing is approximately 5-1/2" x 5"; the second and third each 4" x 6".

        Someone in the Dark

      Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1941. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. True first edition of this second book from Arkham House, containing Derleth's favorites of his weird fiction shorts up to this date. One of 1115 copies of this version. Shorter than the reprint, with thinner boards and (easiest way to tell without a comparison copy) with no headband or footband on the spine. Nice copies of this version are scarcer than the 300 copy (unacknowledged) reprint from the 1960s. This is a very nice copy: spine slightly faded on the dustjacket, minimal wear, book clean, bright and tight. In jacket protector. Much more desirable than the reprint. TW

        Autographed photographic portrait: "Our Skipper"

      London, Photochrom Company Ltd.,, [1941/1950]. 16 x 12 inches. A head and shoulders photograph entitled Our Skipper in the lower margin. Framed behind glass in dark brown wood. Signed "Winston S. Churchill" in the lower margin. Light crease to top left corner with a dab of restoration but an excellent example. The photograph was taken late in 1941 and circulated quite widely throughout 1942 in postcard form. For the 1950 general election the Conservative Party revived the image as a poster and we believe the present photogravure to be contemporaneous with that. What is certain is that this is a rare and charismatic portrait and exceptionally uncommon signed. Framed on the verso is a typed letter on Downing Street letterhead from Churchill's personal private secretary thanking the original owner of this picture for a kindness and confirming that Churchill had been delighted to sign the image.

        Signed Photograph of Churchill and A.V. Alexander, First Lord of the Admiralty outside Downing Street, Winter 1941

      London, , 1941. Good large press photograph, (258 × 175 mm), mounted on card. Very slight damage at the top left-hand corner, but overall very good contemporarily mounted on card and framed and glazed. Churchill and Alexander are shown on a snow-covered Downing Street, both wearing heavy top coats and with highly Churchillian cigars. Churchill is waving his hat to the photographers. Boldly signed and dated by Churchill on the snowy part of the image, Alexander has signed across the bottom of his coat, so that his signature is a little indistinct. Despite having clashed with Churchill in the past over his protectionist policies whilst Chancellor, Alexander was one of the Labour ministers who pushed for Churchill as leader of a coalition government. At the end of April 1940 Alexander, Clement Atlee and Sir Archibald Sinclair met with Churchill to discuss the formation of a coalition, a process that Chips Channon described in his diary as "Churchill prematurely choosing his cabinet." In early May when he did become PM Churchill invited Alexander and Sinclair to become First Lord of the Admiralty and Secretary of State for Air respectively. Alexander enjoyed a good working relationship with Churchill, carrying some of the latter's inspirational enthusiasm to the Admiralty whilst patiently representing their practical concerns to the PM. An appealing war-time image with contemporary signature.

        THE LAST TYCOON: AN UNFINISHED NOVEL; TOGETHER WITH THE GREAT GATSBY AND SELECTED SHORT STORIES [“May Day,” “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz,” “The Rich Boy,” “Absolution” and “Crazy Sunday”]

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1941. First Edition; First Printing. Hard Cover. Good dust jacket. Octavo. A scarce first printing of Fitzgerald's final novel, edited by Edmund Wilson after Fitzgerald's death. Many feel it was shaping up to be his finest. Given its size it was packaged with several of his early short stories as well as The Great Gatsby. Surprisingly, this was only the fifth appearance of The Great Gatsby, preceded by the first two Scribner's printings in 1925, a British edition, and the scarce Modern Library edition in 1934. Also included in this edition are some of Fitzgerald's most successful short stories; a very nice copy in blue cloth; offsetting at the endpaper else contents clean and binding sound; dust jacket retains its $2.75 price on the front flap; generally shelfworn with a chip at the top of the spine; now protected in a mylar cover; additional images available upon request.

        UNDER THE SEA-WIND. A Naturalist's Picture of Ocean Life

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1941 First Edition of Rachel Carson's first book, an established classic of the genre & the first book in her Sea Trilogy. 8vo. 316 pp. A near fine copy in blue cloth, (discreet previous collector's neat name to the front free endpaper & rear pastedown), gilt titles and decorations in a bright, fresh, rather scarce, pictorial dustwrapper (price intact) showing some light overall use, some creasing to the front panel, a few tiny chips and miniscule closed tears. Stunning illustrations by Howard French. Originally published by Simon & Schuster in late November, 1941, it received very good reviews but sold poorly but this had more to do with the world's focus having shifted to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was not a good time for publishing anything. After Carson's success with The Sea Around Us (1951), Under the Sea Wind was republished by Oxford University Press & became a bestseller & was an alternate Book-of-the-Month Club selection. Considered today as one of the "definitive works of American nature writing," describing the behaviour of fish & seabirds accurately, but in story form, often using the scientific names of species as character names. Carson's stated goal in doing so was "to make the sea and its life as vivid a reality for those who may read the book as it has become for me during the past decade." A very collectible copy.. 1st Edition.

        Dropping In. Canada Goose

      New York: The Derrydale Press 1941 New York: The Derrydale Press, 1941. No. 1 of an edition of 250 prints, signed. Image 19 x 15-1/2 inches, plus caption and margins; handsomely matted and framed to 32 x 25 inches overall. Hand-colored aquatint, signed in pencil "Roland Clark" at lower right. Fine condition. Original black frame with gilt rule. Siegel 194-95; Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, pp. 29-31; Ordeman (2005) pp. 37-48. Provenance: Eugene V. Connett 3rd; his son, Eugene V. Connett IV . "Roland Clark's works are among the most sought after" states Siegel in his bibliography of The Derrydale Press. Two of Clark's paintings, each depicting a single bird in its appropriate landscape, were issued in editions of 250 prints from 1937 through 1941; this print, "Dropping In" was the exception, as it shows a single goose in the foreground and a pair of geese in the middle distance as well. Echoing Siegel, Ordeman notes, "The Roland Clark waterfowl prints are among the most highly regarded of the works published by the Press, and they certainly are the best known of the Derrydale prints." Roland Clark (1874-1957) was one of America's finest sporting artists; his etchings, drypoints, aquatints, oils and watercolors are highly sought after, as are his four books, Stray Shots, Gunner's Dawn, Roland Clark's Etchings, and Pot Luck. He studied at The Art Student's League in New York, had a number of successful one-man shows, and won the 1938 Federal Duck Stamp Competition. The popularity of his work has remained undiminished over the years. THE MOST DESIRABLE COPY, EUGENE CONNETT'S OWN

        Beating the Invader

      "If invasion comes, everyone - young or old, men and women - will be eager to play their part worthily." This wartime leaflet is a tangible reminder that, in the early days of 1941, the outcome of the war was not a foregone conclusion and Britain's peril was quite real. The leaflet provides instructions from the Ministry of Information and the Prime Minister regarding what to do in the case of invasion. Measuring 11 inches by 8.25 inches, the leaflet is printed on both sides of a thin, single sheet of paper. On 10 March 1941, at the request of the Ministry of Information, Churchill wrote the introduction to this leaflet. His introduction takes up two-thirds of the first page. After sober consideration of the timing and effect of such a message to the British people, the War Cabinet decided on 24 April 1941 to print more than 14 million copies and distribute the leaflet to all British households. Today these leaflets are quite scarce indeed. Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen writes: "The huge print run might leave one with the impression that the leaflet would be commonly found today. It was, however, only a leaflet anticipating an event that never came to pass. Few copies have survived." Here is a beautiful, nearly perfect example for collectors. The paper is bright and clean with no losses. Three corners are still square, with the fourth showing a trivial bit of wear. The original horizontal creases can still be seen, but are not soiled and only faint, indicating that this copy has long been stored flat. This is as fine a copy as we have seen of this fragile and compelling bit of history. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B76, Woods A69.

        The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, three volume set

      This is a full, first edition, first printing set of the three-volume "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches.  During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner. But more than anything else, it was Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War that made him a preeminent historical figure. His soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world during the greatest war the world has ever known. 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 1952, during Churchill's second premiership, the publisher reissued the War Speeches as a new, three-volume edition. This edition is, in many ways, superior to the original seven wartime editions in both aesthetics and content. Gone is the cheap economy paper of the wartime editions. The binding is a heavy navy cloth with attractive, uniform dust jackets. Further, the books measure a substantial 10 x 6.25 inches. New speeches are added, as is a very helpful index. Some of the original speeches considered peripheral are eliminated while others are retitled and chronological dates are replaced with brief transitional or introductory notes. These sets have become quite scarce in the original dust jackets. Here is a very good plus first printing set in near-fine first printing dust jackets. The notable feature of this set is bright and entirely complete dust jackets with excellent shelf appearance owing to dust jacket spines that show absolutely no toning - a rarity.  The jacket spines retain bright and distinctly pale yellow color, rather than the tan color to which these jackets are almost inevitably sunned.  The dust jackets are unclipped, retaining the original front flap pricing, and show only fractional wear at the spine heads.  The dust jackets do show modest overall spotting, heaviest at the flap folds, but only a few small spots show on lovely, bright dust jacket spines.  The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.  The books beneath are in very good plus condition.  The navy blue cloth bindings are square and tight with bright spine gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear.  The contents are bright and crisp with no previous ownership marks.  The only thing preventing this set from being fine is spotting.  Internally, spotting is confined to just the endpapers.  We note light spotting to the Volume I & II edges, heavier spotting to the Volume III fore and top edges.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A263.1(I-III).a, Woods/ICS A136(a.1), Langworth p.303.

        The War Speeches - full set of 7 British first editions - Into Battle, The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, Secret Session Speeches

      During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner. But more than anything else, it was Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War that made him a preeminent historical figure. Here is a full set of first editions of Churchill's war speeches - the soaring and defiant oratory that sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world during the greatest war the world has ever known. 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 collector-grade set of seven first edition, first printings. All seven correct first printing dust jackets retain bright color. Spine presentation is excellent. None of the dust jackets is price-clipped. Dust jacket losses are minimal, confined to a few small chips at extremities. The Into Battle dust jacket is of particular note, having a vivid, entirely unfaded spine and only a fractional chip loss at the spine head to detract from superlative spine presentation. The Unrelenting Struggle is likewise a bright and highly complete example of a very scarce dust jacket. All seven bindings are exceptionally clean with virtually no wear, square corners, and bright gilt. The contents of all seven volumes are unusually clean and bright. Spotting is confined to the text block edges of only four volumes. Of particular note, Into Battle is a truly fine, crisp, unread, first state copy (confirmed by missing pagination on pages 78 and 294) with absolutely no spotting and immaculate text block edges. The Unrelenting Struggle (irregular pagination on page 281) and Victory (with incorrect pagination on p.177) are also first state copies.

        Swamp Water

      Little Brown and Company Boston: Little, Brown and Company. 1941. First. First edition. Corners very slightly bumped, and some offsetting to the front fly from a clipping, thus near fine in very good dustwrapper faded at the spine and with several very small nicks and tears. Nicely Inscribed by the author: "For my friends Frances and Joe Jones with regards, Vereen Bell. Nov 25 '41." Bestselling first and only novel by the Georgia-born son of that state's Chief Justice. Basis for the 1941 film directed by Jean Renoir, and featuring Walter Brennan, Walter Huston, Anne Baxter, and Dana Andrews, and with appearances by John Carradine and Ward Bond. Also remade in 1952 by Jean Negulesco with Jean Peters, Jeffrey Hunter, Constance Smith, and Walter Brennan (this time in a different role). Bell was killed in 1944 while serving at sea during the war (the subject of the aforementioned clipping), and very few signed copies of this title appear. .
