Odets, Clifford
Random House, New York, 1942. First Edition. Association copy, INSCRIBED by Clifford Odets to Robert Rossen on the front flyleaf, and dated 2/42, the year and month of publication. Basis for the seminal 1952 film noir, directed by Fritz Lang and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan and a young Marilyn Monroe. A tremendous association. Like Odets, Rossen's career began as a playwright in New York, and like Odets, Rossen had a tremendous passion for literature, the theatre, and radical politics. His intuitive understanding of the working class informed his first three screenplays after moving to Hollywood, all for director Raoul Walsh: "The Roaring Twenties" (1939), "They Drive By Night" (1940), and "High Sierra" (1941). During this period he also wrote the screenplays for a number of seminal films noir, including "Out of the Fog" (1941), "Blues in the Night" (1941), "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" (1941), among many others. Rossen's work in what became known as classic film noir culminated in three of his most powerful endeavors, which he would also direct: "Johnny O'Clock" (1947), "Desert Fury" (1947), and "Body and Soul" (1947). He and Odets connected in the making of "Body and Soul" by way of Abraham Polonsky and actor John Garfield, both of whom shared Odets' leftist leanings. He ended the 1940s with "All the King's Men" (1949), a powerful adaptation of Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. In 1961, Rossen would adapt and direct the film that was the pinnacle of his career, "The Hustler" (1961), a brave and unsettling study of a complex man whose psycho … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hughes, Langston
New York: Knopf, 1942. Hughes, Langston in SHAKESPEARE IN HARLEM. Signed and Inscribed. With drawings by E. McKnight Kauffer. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1942. 1st edition, 124p., frontispiece, illustrated.Hughes was called the Shakespeare of Harlem and his Chicago neighborhood's poet laureate.By the time Hughes produced Shakespeare in Harlem, in 1942, he had already made a name for himself as a poet, novelist, playwright, short story writer and more. This was the first book of poetry he wrote after moving permanently to Harlem in the early 1940s (he had also lived there in the 1920s). He was also writing a column for The Chicago Defender, an African American newspaper. The Chicago Defender is still published today.Hughes did not like the drawing on the dust cover. He considered the symbols of a wishbone and dice "tawdry" and cliche symbols of black people. He wasn't the only one. When the book was published, several of his supporters and friends complained about the cover and the publisher's choice of a white illustrator when there were African American artists who could have been chosen. Hughes had the same complaint. The publisher agreed to change the cover for future editions.Beautiful collection from The Negro Poet Laureate. Inscribed and signed to Margaret April. Margaret worked for Chicago bookseller Stuart Brent for many years. Very scarce!Very good; dust jacket.Requires Additional Shipping [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

WILDER, Thornton
Michael Myerberg, New York, 1942. Quarto. Brad bound mimeographed leaves printed rectos only in blue wrappers. p. 1-39; 2-41; 3-31. Slight wear on the yapped edges, else very near fine. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which ran for over 10 months and 359 performances at the Plymouth Theatre, was directed by Elia Kazan and featured Tallulah Bankhead, Frederic March, and Florence Eldridge. This copy Inscribed by both Bankhead: "To Harold Bone - Thanks for everything and Bless You. Tallulah Bankhead" and Frederic March: "To Harold Bone - who was the first to call the turn on this one! Sincerely, Frederic March." Harold Bone was the theater critic for *Variety* from the 1930s until 1975. We think "call the turn" means "predict success" in this usage. Michael Myerberg, whose name is listed as publisher on the front wrap and title page, was the producer of the play. *OCLC* locates a single copy (NYPL) and Yale seems to have a copy or copies in Wilder's papers.

SPENDER, Stephen.
London: Faber & Faber Limited, 1942. London: Faber & Faber Limited,, 1942. Inscribed to W. H. Auden Octavo. Original green cloth, title to spine gilt. With the supplied dust jacket. Housed in a custom green flat-backed folding case. Spine darkened, a little soiling and spotting to cloth, spotting and splashes to rear endpapers, contents otherwise clean and unmarked, in a nice example of the dust jacket, spine slightly faded. First edition, first impression, presentation copy of a work rarely found inscribed, to his lifelong friend and fellow poet W. H. Auden on the half-title, "To Wystan, with love from Stephen. March 1942". This is a key association, inscribed using Auden's first name, which was reserved for friends. Auden was a major influence on Spender: "A pontiff where canoncial poetry was concerned, Auden struck Stephen as being like a cabinet minister in his aim to set up a collective of new British modernist writing... Auden's touch left an indelible mark - if not on the poetry then certainly on Stephen's idea of what it was to be a poet" (Sutherland, p. 79-81). Auden's first book of poetry was privately printed by Spender in 1928. Connolly, The Modern Movement, 91; John Sutherland, Stephen Spender: A Literary Life, Oxford University Press, 2005.

Des croquis de camarades de caserne que le jeune conscrit réalise à Casablanca lors de son service militaire aux aquarelles du Petit Prince, la vie de Saint-Exupéry est rythmée par cette activité marginale mais omniprésente, le dessin.

Shostakovich, D[mitry]
Shostakovich, D[mitry]. Simfonicheskiy Koncert: Sed'maya Simfoniya [Symhonic Concert Symphony No. 7] Moscow: [Iskusstvo], 1942. First Edition, First Printing. Single sheet folded to create [4] pages, measuring 8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches (223 x 145 mm) when folded. Rare program for the Moscow premiere of Dmitry Shostakovich's acclaimed Seventh Symphony, dedicated to the heroic people of Leningrad during the Nazi siege of the city. The Moscow performance took place at the House of the Unions on March 29, 1942, with Samuil Samosud conducting. According to research since the fall of the Soviet Union, Shostakovich conceived the symphony even before the Nazis had attacked in 1941. He started writing it in Leningrad and completed it in Kuybyshev (now Samara), where he and his family had been evacuated. The premiere took place in Kuybyshev on March 1, 1942. The symphony was hailed as a masterpiece, according to an Associated Press report published in The New York Times the following day. "A selected audience, including members of the diplomatic corps, Soviet intellectuals and Red Army officers, was invited to the noontime premiere," the report notes. "They received the work enthusiastically. Mr. Shostakovich was called four times to acknowledge the applause." This program, written entirely in Russian, is rare; only 1,600 copies were printed and many likely did not survive. RARE. CONDITION: Horizontal fold, soiling to lower wrapper. A Very Good copy.

J.R.R. Tolkien
1942. Used. Once thought to have no dust jacket as none had been seen. Arguably more scarce than a 1st/1st. Thin book as printed on war time paper. The dust jacket is also war time paper that develops a pinkish tinge to the paper. The book is very good to near fine, scuffing to the spine cloth end, top page green slightly faded. The jacket has much paper loss to spine and spine ends, tearing and chipping, but otherwise complete with no restoration. There are many small tears and minor tattering to corners and edges, preserved from further damage with many small pieces of removable archival tape, keeping it all together. Sadly each time it is handled, small piece break off as the paper is so brittle due to the paper coating. The lower spine has completely split from the covers and the top of the spine paper. The top spine section is still attached to the cover, but detached from the back cover over along the seam. It is all original 3rd printing jacket no restoration. Because the 83 year old war time paper on this edition is thinner and has distinctive color on the reverse, it would not be possible restore the jacket or swap flaps etc.his would be obvious to see this on the reverse of the jacket. Note that because the book is half the depth of the 1st or 2nd and the jackets were sized for the thicker books, the jacket wraps around the book oddly and it creases differently near the flaps. Its wear patterns are different than later Hobbits. See all our Hobbits listed.

Odets, Clifford
New York: Random House, 1942. First Edition. First Edition. Association copy, INSCRIBED by Clifford Odets to Robert Rossen on the front flyleaf, and dated 2/42, the year and month of publication. Basis for the seminal 1952 film noir, directed by Fritz Lang and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan and a young Marilyn Monroe. A tremendous association. Like Odets, Rossen's career began as a playwright in New York, and like Odets, Rossen had a tremendous passion for literature, the theatre, and radical politics. His intuitive understanding of the working class informed his first three screenplays after moving to Hollywood, all for director Raoul Walsh: "The Roaring Twenties" (1939), "They Drive By Night" (1940), and "High Sierra" (1941). During this period he also wrote the screenplays for a number of seminal films noir, including "Out of the Fog" (1941), "Blues in the Night" (1941), "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" (1941), among many others. Rossen's work in what became known as classic film noir culminated in three of his most powerful endeavors, which he would also direct: "Johnny O'Clock" (1947), "Desert Fury" (1947), and "Body and Soul" (1947). He and Odets connected in the making of "Body and Soul" by way of Abraham Polonsky and actor John Garfield, both of whom shared Odets' leftist leanings. He ended the 1940s with "All the King's Men" (1949), a powerful adaptation of Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. In 1961, Rossen would adapt and direct the film that was the pinnacle of his career, "The Hustler" (1961), a brave and unsettling study of a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lt. Clarence Dickinson
1942. VG/VG: ffep sunned with library "DISCARDED" stamp. Extremely Rare 1st Edition, Signed and Inscribed by Naval Aviator Lt. Clarence Dickinson: his personal story as a pilot on the USS Enterprise - catapulted early morning December 7, 1941 for a short flight to Hawaii, shot down by the Japanese over Hawaii; returned to the Enterprise, after some "difficulty"; flew missions against the Japanese at Wake, The Marshall Islands, Marcus Island and Midway -- and recorded these actions in this book. Lt. Dickinson (a Lt. Commander by the time he signed this copy) became a Rear Admiral some years later. The book is a special piece and part of American History. As a footnote here: "Discarded" from Wesley Manor Library - no date -- a sad reflection of the public's lack of interest in such narratives of that special time in our history.
