Octavo, original orange cloth, original dust jacket. $3600.First edition of this work warning about the end of the capitalism and the rise of bureaucracy in the form of despotic rule by managers.This book is a warning about managers, framing World War II not as a war about fascism, but rather as a war about the managerial society. The question Burnham presents is whether the United States has reached the end of capitalism and whether the United States will ultimately succumb to rule by managers. The threat, he argues, is that control is becoming divorced from access

        The Defenders of Tobruk: Special number issued on the occasion of Delivering The Fortress.

      Limited edition, bound with treasury tag in top left corner, 70 pages, each 340 by 215 mm. This copy is numbered 66. Printed on coarse textured paper. Text in English and Polish. Numerous articles, poems and letters by members of the garrison, the majority being from the Polish Carpathian Brigade, with c.40 superb illustrations, some full page. William Forrest's copy, with an inscription from the editor to him at the head of the title page. Given the conditions under which the magazine must have been produced the production values are exceptional, especially the use of different typefaces for the item headings. Rommel's victories in 1941 failed to include Tobruk. He tried three times to take the city and it became a cause celebre. Churchill signalled General Morshead the officer commanding 'The whole Empire is watching your steadfast and spirited defence of this important outpost of Egypt with gratitude and admiration.' Towards the end of 1941 the Australian troops holding Tobruk were partially replaced by British troops and the Polish Carpathian Brigade. The garrison broke out of the city on the night of 26 November and linked up wth the 2nd New Zealand Division. William Forrest was one of the last of the great Fleet Street foreign correspondents; the final echo from that school of remarkable reporters who, along with Hemingway, Arthur Koestler and company, covered the Spanish Civil War with pencils and notebooks and cables filed from postal depots under shell-fire, long before the electronic revolution brought warfare into our sitting rooms. (Independent - obituary). He covered many of the most important events of the war in Europe and North Africa and was actually wounded at Tobruk. A rare and important document which survives in fine condition, with just a few small chips to the covers.

        Out of the Night

      New York: Alliance Book Corporation, 1941. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Polly and June _____ with admiration and cordial fond wishes from Jan Valtin June 1, 1941." A bestseller in 1941, described as". . . full of sensational revelations and interspersed with episodes of daring, of desperate conflict, of torture, and of ruthless conspiracy . . . It is, first of all, an autobiography the like of which has seldom been." The son of a seafaring father, Richard Julius Herman Krebs, a.k.a. Jan Valtin, came of age as a bicycle messenger during a maritime rebellion. His life as an intimate insider account of the dramatic events of 1920's and 1930s, where he rose both within the ranks of the Communist Party and on the Gestapo hit list. Known for his honesty and incredible memory, Krebs dedicated his life to the Communist Party, rising to a position as head of maritime, organizing worldwide for the Comintern, only to flee the Party and Europe to evade his own comrade's attempts to kill him. As a professional revolutionary, agitator, spy and would-be assassin, Krebs traveled the globe from Germany to China, India to Sierra Leon, Moscow to the United States where a botched assassination attempt landed him a stint in San Quentin. From his spellbinding account of artful deception to gain release from a Nazi prison and his work as a double-agent within the Gestapo, to his vivid depiction of a Communist Party fraught with intrigue and subterfuge, Krebs gives an unflinching portrayal of the internal machinations of both parties. Writing at age 36 under the name Jan Valtin, Krebs lays bare a young life filled with idealism and devotion—disillusionment and loss—in a world full of revolutionary promise gone immeasurably wrong."An exciting, real book without a trace of unnecessary melodrama" (H.G.Wells).

        [Photo Album Pages]: Oberlin College

      Oberlin, Ohio. 1941. Eleven loose sheets removed from a photo album, all measuring 9" x 12". A collection of 73 black and white and sepia toned photographs in various sizes from 2" x 3" to 3.5" x 9", with captions. Slight creasing and small tears else, near fine. Removed pages from a girl's college photo album from 1941 while attending Oberlin College. The assemblage begins in the girl's dorm with a group of friends reading on a bed with captioned nicknames like "Augsie," and "Fish." College sports are heavily featured including action scenes of archery, fencing, swimming, basketball games, baseball, and two panoramas of a football game. The year 1941 marked the 50th anniversary of the football program and it was documented here with photos of the speeches and the marching band. One section has individual head shots of the girls with commentary like "Barb and our dream man," under one that featured a poster of Frank Sinatra. A cool looking woman named "Bets" sits at a desk in a dorm room smoking, the picture of a budding fashionista. A nice compilation of Oberlin life in the 1940s. .

      1941 - Carbon Typescript of the "CONTINUATION OF ORIGINAL TREATMENT". The was the treatment for the, yet unnamed, Hitchcock Film SABOTEUR, that was released on April 22, 1942. This Film Treatment was written by ALFRED HITCHCOCK and JOAN HARRISON. It is dated 10/14/41. SABOTEUR originally had some trouble getting produced. Hitchcock was under contract to Selznick Studios, but Selnick passed on the film. Hitchcock had a treatment that he provided to Universal. Universal wanted a longer treatment, which is where this "Continuation of Original Treatment" comes in. Universal agreed to finance the film, but the budget was reduced and the production timetable was substantially shortened. Filming began shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor. At the time of this treatment, the film's title had not yet been finalized. Carbon sheets, 8.5" x 11", three staples on the left side, 38 pages (numbered 92-129) plus a cover page. Hitchcock story "treatments" are VERY SCARCE, especially his earlier story treatments. About JOAN HARRISON (from Wikipedia): ******Joan Harrison (26 June 1907 ¿ 14 August 1994) was an English film producer and screenwriter. Born in Guildford, Surrey, Harrison studied at St Hugh's College, Oxford and reviewed films for the student newspaper. She also studied at the Sorbonne. In 1933 Harrison became the secretary of Alfred Hitchcock. Eventually she began reading books and scripts for him and became one of Hitchcock's most trusted associates. When Hitchcock moved to Hollywood in March 1939 to begin his contract with David O. Selznick to direct films, Harrison went with him as an assistant and writer. She gained the title of screenwriter when she wrote the film Jamaica Inn (1939) based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier. Harrison continued writing screenplays for films Rebecca (1940), Foreign Correspondent (1940), Suspicion (1941), Saboteur (1942), Dark Waters (1944), and Nocturne (1946).****** [Attributes: First Edition]

        Federazione Italiana di Atletica Leggera: Manuali di Tecnica Athletica (in 11 Volumes)

      Florence, Italy: Editoriale Olimpia, 1941. 1st. Original wraps. Very good. A wonderful --and uncommon-- piece of Olympics history. A collection of 11 volumes of Italian training manuals for the Track & Field events of the Summer Olympics. The first and last booklets serve as introductions to the principles of competitive running and an overview on training methods respectively and the 9 booklets in between focus on specific Track & Field events. The duodecimo booklets were issued in 1940 and 1941 --as the War was brewing-- and the summer games of 1940 (to be held in Tokyo) and 1944 were both cancelled, rendering the booklets superfluous. They have very solid content though (with dozens and dozens of crisp black-and-white photos) and a terrific look and all 11 volumes are tightly-bound and VG in their pictorial wrappers, with light foxing along some of the panels and spines. The 11 volumes are as follows: "Teoria generale della corsa e della marcia" (General theories of running and walking); "Corse di velocita e staffette" (The 400 Meters); "Corse di mezzofondo e di fondo" (800 Meters, 1500 Meters, 5000 and 10,000 Meters); "Corse con ostacoli" (The 400 Meter Hurdles); "Lancio del disco e lancio del martello" (The Discus); "Lancio del giavellotto" (The Javelin); "Lancio del peso" (The Shotput); "Salto in lungo e salto triplo" (The Triple Jump); "Salto in alto" (The High Jump); "Salto con l'asta" (The Pole Vault); and "L'allenamento" (Training). A very handsome set, with terrific cover art to each volume.

The Kamishibai performers -- mostly men -- were itinerate street storytellers who eked out a living by selling candy to their audience members. Daily they would travel from place to place via bicycle, with their stage and stock of sweets in tow, and they would clap two wooden sticks to announce their presence and draw children to them. As they narrated their story, they would slip one card after another into the grooves on the stage to illustrate the action. The typical Kamishibai story had a strong moralistic message. During the Second World War, not surprisingly, the stories took on more patriotic themes. The performer would conclude a day with a cliffhanger, and so the listeners would have to return the following day to hear what happened. While Kamishibai is a thing of the past, its influence is evident in the work of many manga artists. The central character of the three stories contained in the cards on offer here, Ikkyu-Sojun, is a Buddhist priest of Daitoku-ji Temple, a figure well-known to Japanese audiences of the time as a clever, crafty problem solver. Paper theater has suffered minor insect damage, with occasional marks. Top card is creased. Scattered foxing and soiling of cards besides.

        Soviet propaganda poster - Great Patriotic War, TASS, c. 1945.

      Soviet propaganda poster - OUR JUST CAUSE! WE HAVE CONQUERED - (TASS No 1254)Medal showing Stalin bearing same inscription as the caption"The medal of a holy and just war!To wear it is a great honour:There is part of the motherland in it,There is a reflection of national glory in it."Author: V. Lebedev Kumach. Artist: V. Ladyagin. Dimensions: 177 x 86 cm.The major role in Soviet poster art in the war was played by the TASS Windows. They were large, brightly coloured, hand-painted posters, stencilled and produced in runs of up to 1000 copies. They usually were accompanied by a didactic text or often quite lengthy poem. They were the direct descendants of the comparable ROSTA Windows of the Civil War period, so-called because they were displayed in the empty shop-windows of that period. Like ROSTA, TASS was the official Soviet telegraphic agency of the day, and the purpose of the association of this propaganda effort with the agency was both to provide a continuing visual chronicle of the war and to respond immediately, often within hours to the latest telegrams of TASS. M M Chermnykh, who had initiated the ROSTA Windows, also took the lead in the 1941 project. On 24 June the organisational committee of the Union of Soviet Artists established the TASS Window collective and the first poster appeared already on 27 June 1941. The Windows were numbered through to no. 1485 in June 1945. About 1250 were made in the original manner with stencils during the war itself.The theme and the text of each TASS Window were agreed with the leader of the collective, and ultimately with the agreement of TASS. TASS was the official news agency for dissemination of Soviet news abroad and for reception of news from abroad and consequently was strictly controlled by the Party. Most posters were completed and reproduced within 24 hours, the team working in three shifts. After the artist had completed the drawing and painting of the illustration, the poster was cut up into sections and stencils were cut out appropriate to each colour used in the composition. The most elaborate posters used up to 60 stencils. The stencils were then passed to the copy room where each section was copied on a lithographic machine in waterproof oil colours, initially in very few copies but eventually in up to 1000 copies. When all the colours had been applied to each stencilled section, they had to be glued together to make the completed poster and the text was added in a separate operation.The Hallward Library of the University of Nottingham holds a large collection of TASS Posters. For more information, the collection is described in detail here.Price: ?2.500,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

        "Heute gehört uns Deutschland | Today, Germany is ours; | Morgen die ganze Welt!" | Tomorrow, the whole world. | OH, YEAH"? (poster)

      U. S. Government Printing Office, 1941 Poster. Halftone printed in black, olive green, and red on uncoated off-white paper. 19.7 x 15.9 in. / 50 x 40.4 cm. Verso blank. Formerly folded. This very early World War II propaganda poster depicts a hideous quintet of helmeted Nazi soldiers with wild eyes and filed teeth singing from sheet music against a bright red background. The original German text to the song appears above in olive green in modernized German Gothic type; the interlinear English translation is in black. The rejoinder, below, is in large, italic sans-serif capitals. Only one copy located, at Northwestern University. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 7, 1941, the US declared war on Monday, the 8th. Isolationist opposition to US involvement in the European war crumbled on Thursday, the 11th, when both Germany and Italy declared war on us, and America returned the favor. Until then, we had been a neutral nation, ostensibly, though Roosevelt's invention of Lend Lease to provide war matériel to the Allies was anything but neutral. It is almost inconceivable that this inflammatory design could have been used publicly by the War Department before hostilities began. It must have been created within the first three weeks of the war and published shortly thereafter. The poster was folded, but it has been cleaned and flattened professionally. A few pale marginal stains remain, but it is a fresh and harrowing image.
