        Collection of autographs by northern European political and military leaders of WWII: Carl Gustav Fleischer, Risto Ryti, Gustaf Mannerheim, and Edward Raczynski.

      London and Helsinki, 1940-1941. - 4 sets of autographs laid down to album leaves, including original envelopes, numerous photo reproductions and newspaper clippings. Interesting wartime collection, assembled by the young Uruguayan nobleman Alejandro Zorrilla de San Martin (1909-87; Foreign Affairs Minister from 1963 to 1965 and grandson of José Luis Zorrilla de San Martín, the National Poet of Uruguay) by direct application. The Norwegian general Carl G. Fleischer (1883-1942) sends "mes meilleurs voeux pour vos et votre pays" from his London exile on 10 April 1941. The clipped photo reproduction shows the Polish Prime Minister in Exile, Sikorski, conferring upon Fleischer the "Virtuti Militari" medal for bravery. A year later, the strong-headed Fleischer (the first land commander to win a major victory against Germany in WWII) took his own life after being bypassed for the post of commander-in-chief of the Norwegian Armed Forces. - The Finnish statesman Risto Ryti (1889-1956) signs only his name and the date (6 March 1941). Ryti served as Prime Minister during the Winter War; later he served as President during the Continuation War. Having signed the Ryti–Ribbentrop Agreement in 1944, he was the main defendant in the Finnish War-responsibility trials. His countryman, the statesman and officer Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim (1867-1951), signs his surname (1940, Helsingfors), adding a caption to the image provided by Zorrilla: "Les dernières manoevres de l'armée finlandise avant la guerre 1939-40". The diplomat Edward Raczynski (1891-1993) initials a 5-line dedication. - Also includes a 3½-page letter from Scotland (with inscribed photograph) by the Polish army captain Moscicki, to whom Zorrilla had written after wrongly identifying him as former president Ignacy Moscicki (actually in Switzerland).

        A unique archive of investigative manuscript notes and photographs of the architecture and decorative arts of colonial Brazil compiled in 1941.

      - The archive comprises: 410 filing cards (11.5 x 17.5cm) with notes in Spanish in ink and pencil, many on both sides, interspersed with sketches of the art objects discussed, arranged under locations setting out the compiler’s conclusions of his detailed studies, intended for publication; 636 negatives with 240 positives in 67 envelopes of which 60 give precise locations of where the images were taken by a Voigtländer Brillant camera; 256 photographs (11 enlarged) in slip reference files classified under these locations: Iguarassú, Olinda, Parana, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salva, Santos, Sao Paulo, Tirandentes. The Argentine art historian Olivier was commissioned by his government to study Luso-Brazilian influences in interior design and architecture in the region of the River Plate. He travelled to Brazil between 1935 and 1941 to study the colonial buildings and arts of Sao Paulo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and Pernambuco. His article ‘ Historia del mueble colonial’ (in Rosalinda, Buenos Aires, Mar.-Oct.1939) is described by Mario Jose Buschiazzo (Bibliografia de arte colonial argentino, B.A.1947) as ‘the most serious and thorough study of colonial furniture. He begins with Spanish furniture and then continues with that of the ‘conquistadores’, the household furniture of the missions, 18th century French influences, Portuguese furniture in the River Plate region and the Jesuit artisans.’ The results of Olivier’s studies in Brazil were published in 1942 in the Memoria of the Comision Nacional de Cultura, and his conclusions led to a series of lectures citing examples of how Luso-Brazilian characteristics had affected the artistic styles of the River Plate. To illustrate his work Olivier assiduously photographed many buildings and furniture of the colonial period. The chief glory of the churches are their sacristies, their Portuguese and Spanish paintings and the baroque furniture copied in the dark woods of Brazil from European models, often influenced by trade relations with the Orient (Indian or Chinese).

        Falstaff. [Full score in autograph musical manuscript facsimile]

      Milano: G. Ricordi, 1941. Limited Edition, this number 16 of 500 copies. Scarce. Published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Verdi's death. Verdi's final opera, Falstaff is a commedia lirica in three acts to a libretto by Arrigo Boito after William Shakespeare's plays The Merry Wives of Windsor and King Henry IV. It was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on February 9, 1893. "Few would deny how richly Verdi deserved this final triumph, or how heartening a message Falstaff offers. The opera leaves us with a musical image that exactly reflects those famous photographs of Verdi in his last years: an old man, in black hat, with eyes that have lived through a lifetime of struggle, smiling out wisely at the world." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Quarter dark blue morocco with blue cloth boards, facsimile of Verdi's autograph signature to upper. 1f. (title), 394 pp. autograph musical manuscript facsimile + 1f. (recto printed colophon, verso blank). Binding very slightly worn; endpapers slightly browned and cockled.

        Reflections in a Golden Eye

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston 1941 - First edition. Near fine in a price-clipped, fair only first issue dustwrapper with wrinkling caused by drying of the glue that is holding the glassine window on the front panel, and several internal repairs. This disastrous construction technique inevitably led to the shrinkage of the acetate which in turn wrinkled and tore the jacket. A less than ideal copy of the author's scarce second book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
