The film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2016. It would make an excellent addition to a pre World War II film poster collection.

It is in Very Good+ Condition The boards are very clean and presentable, there is one small line to them but otherwise excellent. The front gilt is very bright and the spine gilt is only slightly faded , one of the best spine gilts I have seen on a 1941. Internally it has very clean pages and it cannot have been opened too many times as the hinges are very springy. Small mark to page block, pictures taken with and without flash. A very nice, rare, Wisden that is hard to beat.

        Broadcast By The Prime Minister Mr. Winston Churchill To The Polish People, May 3, 1941 (Poland's 150th Constitution Day), a pristine copy in the original franked wartime envelope, accompanied by the May 21, 1941 Bulletins from Britain Supplement and an unused order form for the Air Ministry Record of the Battle of Britain

      New York: British Library of Information, 1941. First edition, only printing. Leaflet. This compelling Second World War time capsule testifies to the vigorous campaign by Churchill's Britain to win American empathy and support. Within an original, franked “Bulletins from Britain” mailing envelope we discovered a pristine copy of the first edition, only printing of Churchill's broadcast speech to the Polish people of 3 May 1941 on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the adoption of the Polish Constitution. The fragile, leaflet publication is the best-preserved copy we have encountered. The envelope also includes an original order form for the U.S. edition of The Battle of Britain (the 1941 official report of the British Air Ministry to the British people) as well as a four-page pamphlet titled "Bulletins from Britain SUPPLEMENT" (Number 38) dated "May 21, 1941". The SUPPLEMENT bulletin is in fine condition, with just a few faint corner creases. The order form for The Battle of Britain is creased at the upper right corner with a tiny blemish at the lower left corner. The original postmarked envelope is age-toned, but fully intact. Churchill's broadcast speech to the Polish people of 3 May 1941 was delivered during a terrible time for Nazi-occupied Poland, but also for a beleaguered Britain. The Blitz continued over Britain, merchant shipping losses in the Atlantic mounted, and there were imminent battles in Crete, Cyrenaica, and Iraq, with consequent threats to Egypt and the Middle East - all with the United States still more than half a year away from formally entering the war. The Polish people were suffering the fate of invasion and occupation that Britain had only narrowly avoided. "It is to you, Poles, in Poland who bear the full brunt of the Nazi oppression, at once pitiless and venal, that the hearts of the British and American democracies go out in a full and generous tie." Churchill's relationship with Poland would have its controversies. On 5 July, 1943, the Liberator bomber carrying General W adys aw Eugeniusz Sikorski, the preeminent Polish figure of the Second World War and leader of the Polish government in exile, crashed immediately after taking off from Gibraltar. Sikorski's death fueled conspiracy theories, as the cause of Polish sovereignty, for which Sikorski advocated, was a thorn in the side of relations between the American, British, and Soviet Allies; Poland would be effectively ceded to the Soviet sphere of influence for the long Cold War that followed the Second World War. Churchill speaks of Sikorski in this 3 May 1941 speech: "It has been my privilege to come to know your Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief General Sikorski, whose leadership, energy, and unfaltering confidence is a source of great encouragement to all who meet him." This first edition, only printing of Churchill's 3 May 1941 speech is one of a series of Churchill's speeches printed by the British Library of Information in New York. The British Library of Information published twenty-nine editions of statements, speeches, and broadcast addresses by Churchill, beginning with his first speech as Prime Minister of May 13, 1940 and ending with the broadcast address of November 29, 1942. These editions were often issued within two or three days of delivery and "reveal the political determination of the British government to bring the inspiration and steadfastness of the Prime Minister and the British nation to an American nation not yet engaged in the war. Indeed, twenty-two of the BLOI speech pamphlets were published before Pearl Harbor." (Cohen, Volume I, p.513, A120) This is a single leaflet, printed on both sides and measuring 9.125 x 6 inches. Most speeches in the series bear a front cover design featuring three vertical rules along the right side and a coat of arms at the top. This edition bears only the Royal arms at the top right, plausibly owing to space needed to fit the entirety of the speech on the double-sided leaflet. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A146, Woods A71.

        Winged Words An early wartime speech pamphlet previously unknown to Churchill's bibliographers or the collecting community

      Liverpool: John Peck & Company Limited, 1941. First edition. Pamphlet. This is a wartime pamphlet featuring excerpts from Prime Minister Winston Churchill's speeches, spanning the first ten months of his premiership, from May 1940 to February 1941. This is the only copy we have encountered and of which we are aware. We have confirmed with Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I Cohen, that this pamphlet is, indeed, a new discovery, previously unknown. The pamphlet measures 5.25 inches (18.5 cm) x 4.75 inches (12.25 cm) and is eight pages in length, wire-stitched and printed in black and red on cream card stock. The front cover features a photographic portrait of Churchill framed by a double red rule above the title “Winged Words” printed above a red double horizontal rule. Seven pages within feature eleven excerpts from Churchill's speeches of May, June, July, August, September, October, and November 1940, as well as three excerpts from Churchill's speeches of February 1941. Each excerpt is dated by month and titled as follows: Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat May 1940; This was Their Finest Hour June 1940; We shall Fight on the Beaches June 1940; Alone in the Breach July 1940; The War of the Unknown Warriors July 1940; The Task Before Us August 1940; A Message of Good Cheer September 1940; Every Man to His Post September 1940; The Salvation of Europe October 1940; Empire and Liberty October 1940; We Will Never Cease to Strike November 1940; Pride of Empire February 1941; American Opinion February 1941; A Message to Roosevelt February 1941. The rear cover is printed “Presented with the Compliments of John Peck & Company Limited” (a Liverpool clothing manufacturer) above an illustrated advertisement for “Pexwear” overalls, billed as “The uniform of Britain's war workers”. At the foot of the page is a five-line advertisement for Into Battle, the first volume of Churchill's war speeches published by Cassell and Company on 6 February 1941. Condition is very good plus. The cardstock wraps remain complete with no loss, tears, or spotting. Both binding staples are firmly intact, though rusted with some adjacent staining of the pamphlet. Soiling is light. The contents are clean with no previous ownership marks. 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. Publication of this wartime pamphlet precedes all but the first of these war speeches volumes. Bibliographic reference: unknown to either Cohen or Woods.

        The War Speeches, 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 a superior set of British first edition, first printings of Winston Churchill's seven war speeches volumes. This set features near fine volumes in very good plus or better dust jackets. First printing sets have become quite difficult to assemble thus. 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 collector-worthy exception. The blue cloth bindings remain square and tight with bright spine gilt and only trivial shelf wear. The contents are unusually bright throughout the set. The spotting endemic to these first editions is almost entirely confined to the page edges of the first, second and final volumes. The sole previous ownership marks we find in the set are on the front free endpaper of The Unrelenting Struggle – a wartime gift inscription dated “6th Oct 1942” above a small, illustrated bookplate. The Unrelenting Struggle is first state, denoted by irregular pagination at page 281. Victory is also first state, denoted by incorrect pagination at page 177. The first printing dust jackets all retain unusually bright spines including Into Battle, which has been spared the customary spine toning. Secret Session Speeches is the best copy we have seen in several years, with beautifully fine book beneath a complete and unusually bright dust jacket. All seven dust jackets retain the original front flap prices and are complete apart from fractional chipping to a few extremities. Modest soiling, light wear to some hinges and extremities, and a tiny ink mark to the Victory front face do not detract from the compelling shelf presentation and overall caliber of the set. All seven dust jackets are newly fitted with removable, archival quality clear covers.

Lüpertz dringt darauf, den Darstellungsgegenstand mit einer archetypischen Aussage seines Daseins festzuhalten. Viele seiner Werke werden dem Neoexpressionismus zugeschrieben. Von 1988 bis 2009 war Lüpertz Rektor an der Staatlichen Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. In der Öffentlichkeit stilisiert er sich als exzentrischen Maler, der seinen eigenen Geniekult betreibt.

        Curious George

      Houghton Mifflin Co, Boston - An uncommon, very early --but not 1st-- edition of "Curious George". Based on the dustjacket price of "$2.75", we're surmising this edition was published in the mid to late 1950s, some 14 to 17 years after the exceedingly scarce 1941 original edition was published. Even though this copy is missing its front free endpaper, it remains solid and very presentable. Tight, clean and VG- in its red cloth. And in a crisp, price-intact, VG- dustjacket, with 2 separate 1" pieces of tape --and several small closed tears-- along the panel edges. A bit of light, forgiveable soiling as well at the panels. Octavo, written by an uncredited Margret Rey and wonderfully illustrated thruout in rich color by her husband H.A. Rey. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS

      - McCLOSKEY,ROBERT. MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS. NY:Viking / Junior Literary Guild 1941 (1st published August 1941). 4to, rust colored cloth with picture of a duck in lower right corner, bottom edge rubbed and the inevitable and always present offset on endpapers from binding else VG+ in dust wrapper with price intact, with no award medal and with no mention of the Junior Literary Guild. (Jacket has 1/4" piece off spine ends and corners, fraying with some closed tears on bottom edge, rough at crease). 1st edition, CALDECOTT AWARD WINNER. [A word of explanation about the Junior Literary Guild: The Junior Literary Guild was created in 1929 as a literary book club for children. It prided itself in often selecting the best award winning books before publication. This is most likely due to its editorial board that included amongst others Carl Van Doren and Eleanor Roosevelt who was an active member of the board. Unlike other book clubs that offered cheap reprints, the Guild books used first edition sheets with the only changes being different binding color and the inclusion of the words "Junior Lit. Guild" on the title page and spine. Because they are in fact first editions, Guild books are almost as valuable as the Viking copies but they can sell for a bit less]. Because every child who read this book, read it to death, first editions in dust wrappers are notoriously rare, and ardently sought after. This one is a prize. See Bader p. 155-6.
