"Both historically and artistically, Lucia deserves its reputation. When it was new it was regarded as the apogee of high Romantic sensibility. Although all the principal roles are vocally challenging, their music is uniformly grateful. Cammarano's libretto moved him deeply and, inspired by his recent first exposure to Paris, Donizetti produced what is certainly his masterpiece." William Ashbrook in Grove Music Online.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      , 1941. ("C.S. Lewis") in black fountain pen ink on engraved Magdalen College, Oxford letterhead, May 17, 1941. 8vo (4 3/8" x 7"). 2 pages (1 leaf recto and verso). Fine, dark and clean example. A fine letter with some fascinating insights into the author's views on his early work, book dealing and the collector value of his earlier works. To [Joseph] McCulloch: Interesting letter about Lewis' book The Pilgrim's Regress and doubting that it would "be useful for a Forces' Programme" as "it's too darned meta-physical and full of unnecessary difficulties." Noting that "forwardness' about my own books I always regard as meritorious" the author states that the book "has been blitzed" and laments that he finds difficulty in dealing with the publisher, Mr. Sheed. Providing a list of people who might have a copy, the author states "I also have a strong suspicion that I might may be found for 4d in Charing + Rd. - at least I can't imagine any book of mine not reaching that destination." The author concludes "I hope you won't think my reluctance to risk my own solitary copy churlish, or conclude that, like Wodsworth, I make my own books my favourite reading! Mirrors have other uses than those of vanity." Together with a copy of C.S. Lewis' "The Problem of Pain", London, The Centenary Press, February 1941, third printing, with the ownership signature of "Joseph McCulloch / Oxford. May 1941." Joseph McCulloch, as Rector of St. Mary-le-Bow, would later host "Bow Dialogues" comprising a series of dialogues held at the church of St. Mary-le-Bow, London, from 1964 to 1979.

        The man who loved children (First edition; Florence James' and Christina Stead's copy)

      London : Peter Davies, 1941. First U.K. edition. Octavo, red cloth boards (upper board lightly marked), the personal copy of both Florence James (19 David St. Mosman) and later Christina Stead (Camberley, Surrey), the ownership signatures of both women on the front free endpaper, 480 pp (edges flecked), a well read copy, housed in a quarter blue morocco and blue cloth clamshell box. A highly important association copy of Christina Stead's most acclaimed novel. The New Zealand-born writer and literary agent Florence James had settled in Sydney in 1920, where she met and became a close friend of Christina Stead while the pair were studying English Literature at Sydney University. In the late twenties Stead and James spent time together in London and Paris, a formative period in the lives of both women. James married William 'Pym' Heyting in 1932, and is perhaps best remembered as the co-author with Dymphna Cusack of Come in Spinner (1951). She was also the model for Stead's eponymous character in her late novel, Miss Herbert (1976). The copy of The man who loved children which we offer here is in some respects the ultimate copy of Stead's most acclaimed novel: not only did it originally belong to her dear friend Florence James, but it subsequently passed back into the author's own hands, a tangible record of how Stead's brilliant literary achievement was cherished and shared in one of Stead's most important personal relationships.

        Dr. Roberts' Rejuvenator Rings

      None Kennebunkport, Maine [1941] - First Edition. Original printed sheet folded over, two pages of text signed in facsimile by Roberts, without publisher information or date but Kennebunkport, Maine, circa 1941- 1945. An unusual ephemeral piece by Roberts, two pages of puffery for the use of metallic bracelets and necklaces as made by "old Dr. Roberts himself in his Kennebunkport, Maine, laboratory". The text gives the historical and literary examples of the success of such Magnetism. Roberts's biographer, Jack Bales, had a few photocopies of this pamphlet in his papers now at the Dartmouth College Library, but there are no copies recorded on WorldCat or anywhere else for that matter.

        WWII GERMAN ALPHABET BOOK FOR SLAVIC AND AUSTRIAN CHILDREN: LESEFIBEL. KINDERWELT.

      8°, [1] printed title, 108 pp. with lithographed colour illustrarions within text, [1] full page colour lithographed illustration, hardcover binding with pasted illustration on the cover, tan linen spine (cover rubbed, scuffed corners, loss of linen to the spine, paper slightly stained, some tears and loss of paper in white margins, WWII primary school library stamp on the title page). - Graz: Leykam-Schulbuchverlag, 1941. A rare German alphabet book was printed in the first year of WWII in Styria, Austria, a partialy Salvic region, that the Nazis wanted to Germanise. Laden with political propaganda, but very high quality illustrations by the Austrian painter Norbertine von Bresslern-Roth. - This rare alphabet book, accompanied by high quality illustrations educated children in reading, as well as accepting the new political regime. The book was printed in 1941 in Graz, Styria in Austria, a partialy Salvic region, that the Nazis wanted to Germanise. Following the Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941, virtually all of Lower Styria, in addition to some adjacent territories, was annexed to Nazi Germany. Hitler, upon his visit to Maribor (German: Marburg am Drau), the main city?of Lower Styria, declared that he "wanted to make Styria German again". The Nazis then embarked upon a dastardly design to &#145;remove&#146; the majority of ethnic Slovenes, as well as other non-Germans, from both Lower Styria and Carinthia. In their place, ethnic Germans would be resettled into the regions, giving them German demographic super-majorities. Heinrich Himmler, the heinous head of the SS, was charged with devising the basic plan. He decided that all non-Germans who had moved to Lower Styria and Carinthia after 1914 (the start of World War I) should automatically be deported from the region (many people from other parts of Yugoslavia had moved to Lower Styria since then). Additionally, Nazi doctors should examine all ethnically "suspicious" people, and if they did not meet their racial criteria, they should also be deported. Next, all Slovenian and non-German intellectuals and political activists should be removed. is would have the e ect of decapitating the local society, removing virtually all of its leadership and, supposedly with it, the possibility for organized resistance. Finally, Himmler would remove most Slovenian farmers, so that their land could be given to German settlers. e only Slovenes and others who would be exempt from deportation would be mine workers (necessary for the Nazi war effort) and collaborators. If followed, this diabolical plan would establish ethnic German super-majorities in both Lower Styria and all parts of Carinthia. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Himmler&#146;s plan for Lower Styria and Carinthia was similar in many respects to the ones he had already instigated to ethnically cleanse parts of the Czech Republic and Poland, although the details are unique to this situation. The Nazi high command decided that the ethnic cleansing programme for Styria and Carinthia would be orchestrated in collaboration with the newly established Axis-puppet Usta&#154;e regime in the Independent State of Croatia. e Usta&#154;e had their agenda that dovetailed into the Nazi programme. e Croatians desired to remove ethnic Serbians, who were overwhelmingly Orthodox Christians, from their territory, particularly in Slavonia and Bosnia, populations that they wanted to replace with either ethnic Croatians or Roman Catholics of other nationalities. e overarching principles of this horri c programme were devised in Berlin and approved by Hitler on May 25, 1941. The illustrator Norbertine von Bresslern-Roth (1891 - 1978) was a famous Austrian illustrator and printer from Graz. She was schooled in Dachau an at the Art academy of Vienna, where she got specialised in linocuts and animal illustration, as well as illustration of children&#146;s books. Von Bresslern-Roth was active in her native Graz in Styria, Austria, during WWII, where she illustrated this politically powerful children&#146;s book. At the same time she was also making illustrations, critic to the regime. Von Bresslern-Roth husband Georg von Bresslern (&#134; 1952) was of Jewish origins, but she refused to get a divorce during the war. We could only trace two other institutional examples in libraries worldwide (Slovenian School Museum and German National Library, Frankfurt am Main). This example bear
