Holocaust era Soviet publication in English which spares no detail in printing the grizzliest possible descriptions of German torture and dissection of Soviet children.

For them it is immaterial?be the child Ukrainian, Jewish, Uzbek, Georgian, or Tatar. For them it is immaterial be the child Czechoslovakian or French, English or American?. Once they are non - Aryan, once they are not Fritzes?away with them! ? Interesting period example of the Soviet description of German psychology, much more unforgiving than that which one finds in Western publications from the same time.

        Collection of WWII Correspondence: Letters to and from Six Servicemen from Illinois

      [Forrest, Illinois]: August 1942 - November 1946 (most 1944-1946) 156 letters and two envelope fragments. Near fine, with a few letters dampstained, usual soiling and offsetting to the envelopes, wear where opened, else very bright and clean. This collection of correspondence was carefully collected, arranged and preserved by Virginia Huber, a young secretary from Illinois. The letters sent from the soldiers are grouped according to the writer, arranged in reverse chronological order and held together with simple string bindings. The soldiers' letters are primarily written on blank leaves or military stationary, and are housed in the envelopes they were originaly mailed in. Virginia, apparently careful in the planning of her letters, preserved typed drafts of her letters and not the handwritten copies she sent to her enlisted correspondents. Nearly all of her letters are printed on thin carbon paper, although a few greeting card mock-ups are on cardstock. Virginia's letters to the men are also grouped by addressee, arranged in reverse chronological order, and housed in cardstock paper folders printed with each correspondents' name, hometown, and station location. Virginia Huber, who was active in her local church and community activities, wrote to several enlisted servicemen whom she knew from her hometown of Forrest, IL. Because they were united by geographical location rather than branch of service, the soldier letters included here represent a wide range of American military experiences during WWII. Virginia, whose beauty was noted by nearly all of her correspondents, was also a notably vivacious and spunky writer. Related People: Huber, Virginia - Secretary from Forrest, IL, and arranger of this collection Funk, Norman - Naval airman from Roanoke, IL, stationed in Jacksonville, FL Funk, Ray - Army serviceman from Gridley, IL, stationed in Camp Crowder, MO and Camp Polk, LA Hartman, Art - Army serviceman from Strawn, IL, stationed in Peoria, IL & Camp Lee, VA Johnson, Roy - Naval serviceman from IL Sauder, Howard - Army sergeant from Roanoke, IL, stationed in the Aleutian Islands Steffen, Albert - Naval serviceman from Elgin, IL, stationed in Okinawa, Japan I. Letters from Six Soldiers to Virginia 1. Howard Sauder (11 August 1942 - 30 December 1945) Twenty-eight hand written letters written to Virginia Huber. Howard was one of Virginia's longest-lasting correspondents. Stationed in the Aleutian Islands, Howard was often highly isolated and many of his letters to Virginia express the sense of disconnect that plagued him. Notably, because of the location of his station, he was privy to both American and Japanese radio broadcasts and remarked on the curiousness of thinking of the Allied troops as criminal. 2. Raymond Johnson (23 December 1943 - 22 February 1944) Two handwritten letters and one copied letter written to Virginia Huber. Although she kept no record of any correspondence to him, Virginia's friendship and Ray's association of her with his home, and indeed all that he had left behind, provided him a strong sense of comfort. As Ray wrote in his letter from February 22, 1944: "You never miss home till you a long long way from it." 3. Art Hartman (3 January 1944 - 20 November 1946) Twenty-two handwritten and typed letters written to Virginia Huber and one empty envelope addressed to Virginia. Art and Virginia's close friendship is evident in the familiarity of Art's letters; in addition to asking about her love life and telling her about his dates, Art includes several cutouts from military newspapers - often the joke sections. Notably, Art was stationed at the newly rebuilt Camp Lee, which is now better known as Fort Lee. 4. Albert Steffen (6 November 1944 - 29 July 1946) Fourteen handwritten letters addressed to Virginia Huber. Although he boasted of several excursions to the Japanese mainland, Albert primarily describes his adventures on Okinawa, which he calls "the rock," and the many servicemen he met who also hail from his hometown. In addition to his letters, Virginia preserved. Near Fine.

        Worksheets on Morale. Seminar in Psychological Problems of Morale

      Published by Harvard University, Department of Psychology. 1942 - 152 leaves, complete in 15 sections, ca. 90,000 words. (Two copies of this work are located via WorldCat: Harvard and Illinois State University). *Provenance: OSS (Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA) Library via the Library of Congress. *This work by Gordon Allport and Henry A. Murray contains several sections on what has been recently hailed as the earliest psychological profile of Adolf Hitler. The sections include: (1) Aim of Seminar, 2 lvs; (2) Selected Bibliography, 1941, 3 lvs; (3) Notes on the Definition of Morale, 3+3lvs; (4) Determinants of Good and Bad Morale, 18 lvs; (5) Historical Trends of National Socialist Ideology, 14 lvs; (6) Hitler the Man, Notes for a Case Study, 22 lvs; (7) Education in Nazi Germany, 8 lvs; (9) Strategy and Tactics for anti-Nazi propaganda, 10 lvs; (10) Democratic vs. Totalitarian Morale in Groups, 5 lvs; (11) Standards of Democratic Morale-Building in the U.S., 6 lvs; (12) Civilian Morale Building Techniques, 7pp; (13) Psychology of Influence (Education Persuasion) Applied to Morale Building in America, 16 lvs; (14) Long-term Aspects of Democratic Morale-Building, 7 lvs; (15) Analysis and Execution of Propaganda Campaigns, 18 lvs. The portions of this publication concerning the psychological profile of Hitler seem to pre-date the very recent re-publication of Murray's very obscure 1943 work again published for the OSS on the psychological composition of Hitler. The date of publication of these sheets is somewhat uncertain, although there are no references dated after 1941. These sheets were obviously not intended for a wide distribution. It is interesting to note the circulation card in the pocket at the rear of this work as it bears the signature of David N. Yerkes. I spoke with Mr. Yerkes a dozen years ago and inquired after his interest in this work (taken out on 7 June 1944 and returned 14 June 1944), and he told the story that Henry Murray was a pupil of his father's, who was Robert Yerkes, former president of the American Psychological Association, Professor of Psychology at Harvard and innovator in the use of psychological testing and training of American servicemen during WWI. This work by Gordon Allport and Henry A. Murray contains several sections on what has been recently hailed as the earliest psychological profile of Adolf Hitler. Evidently there were only 30 copies of this report made; it is exceptionally rare. The sections include: (1) Aim of Seminar, 2 lvs; (2) Selected Bibliography, 1941, 3 lvs; (3) Notes on the Definition of Morale, 3+3lvs; (4) Determinants of Good and Bad Morale, 18 lvs; (5) Historical Trends of National Socialist Ideology, 14 lvs; (6) Hitler the Man, Notes for a Case Study, 22 lvs; (7) Education in Nazi Germany, 8 lvs; (9) Strategy and Tactics for anti-Nazi propaganda, 10 lvs; (10) Democratic vs. Totalitarian Morale in Groups, 5 lvs; (11) Standards of Democratic Morale-Building in the U.S., 6 lvs; (12) Civilian Morale Building Techniques, 7pp; (13) Psychology of Influence (Education Persuasion) Applied to Morale Building in America, 16 lvs; (14) Long-term Aspects of Democratic Morale-Building, 7 lvs; (15) Analysis and Execution of Propaganda Campaigns, 18 lvs. *The portions of this publication concerning the psychological profile of Hitler seem to pre-date the very recent re-publication of Murray's very obscure 1943 work again published for the OSS on the psychological composition of Hitler.

        The Art of Walt Disney.

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1942. First edition. Quarto, original tan cloth. Humorously inscribed by Walt Disney on the frontispiece: "To Clyde, Haven't you any better use for your money? Walt." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small chips and tears. Wonderfully illustrated throughout from photographs and drawings. Art critic Robert Feild's purpose in writing this book was "to present the art of Walt Disney as a growing force in our midst." Formal criticism of cartoon art was so entirely new at the time that "we have no standards by which to judge the art of today, no terminology with which to discuss, for instance, the work of a man like Walt Disney? How is one to write about Walt Disney if his art, which is that of the Animated Sound Picture, is to most people still a mystery while the artist himself is an enigma invariably associated with a Mouse?

        Deutscher Faustkampf nicht pricefight. Boxen als Rasseproblem. Mit einem Vorwort von Max Schmeling

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP., Franz Eher Nachfolger, 1942 - Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Broschur / Kartoneinband im Format 12,3 x 19 cm) mit Deckeltitel, 102 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. - Aus dem Vorwort von Max Schmeling: "Kein Geringerer als unser Führer Adolf Hitler hat den charakterbildenden Wert des Boxsportes erkannt und sich deshalb dafür eingesetzt, daß die heranwachsende deutsche Jugend im Faustkampf ihrem Mut erprobt und stärkt." - Mit einem geschichtlichen Rückblick: "Der öffentliche Zweikampf mit den Fäusten vor einer Zuschauermenge war im Vorkriegsdeutschland bekanntlich verboten. Als dann die feige Novemberrevolte dem ruhmreichen Frontheer die unbefleckte Klinge aus der Hand schlug und die Truppen unbesiegt aus dem Felde zurückkehrten, da brachten zivilgefangene deutsche Matrosen, unter ihnen Hans Breitensträter, gewisse Boxkenntnisse in die Heimat mit, die sie sich in einem englischen Internierungslager angeeignet hatten. Die damalige Regierung hob das Boxverbot auf. Man hätte nun annehmen sollen, daß diese Leibesübung, die den kämpferischen männlichen Tugenden unseres Volkes voll und ganz zu entsprechen schien, breiteste Schichten ohne Unterschied des Standes und der Person im Sturmlauf gewinnen werde. Leider kam alles wieder einmal anders. Die Novembermänner, die es fertig gebracht hatten, im Jahre 1918 unsere alte stolze Armee, jene anerkannt beste Schule der Jugendertüchtigung, zu zerschlagen, diese verj. Schädlinge und Kreaturen wollten ja gar nicht den Boxsport zum Volkgut werden lassen! Sie, die selber keine Ehre besaßen, hatten niemals ein Interesse daran, im Volke Ehrgefühl und Heroismus zu fördern, denn dann hätten sie ja die längste Zeit in ihren bequemen Sesseln gesessen. Das Boxen war ihnen daher lediglich Mittel zum Zweck. Es wurde vom rein geschäftlichen Standpunkt aus betrachtet und diente vielfach dazu, die Sensationsgelüste einer blutwitternden Menge aufzupeitschen, wie das zu Zeiten des Niedergangs schon häufig in der Geschichte war. Ich denke dabei nur an die Eisenfaustschläger der Griechen oder an die Gladiatoren während des Sittenverfalls im alten Rom, die sich zur Wollust entarteter Herrscher und im Beisein eines entmenschten Pöbels auf Leben und Tod bekämpfen mussten. Spricht es nicht Bände für die ungeheuerliche sportliche Verantwortungslosigkeit der Nachkriegszeit, daß man die Polsterung der Handschuhe für Berufskämpfer bis auf das bedenklich dünne Polsterungsgewicht von 4 Unzen herabsetzte, während nach den internationalen Bestimmungen allgemein 5 Unzen als Norm galten.?Adolf Hitler hat es fertiggebracht, was die anderen jemals weder gewollt noch konnten: er hat das Boxen weltanschaulich und gedanklich im Volke verankert. Die von ihm eingesetzte Reichssportführung begann mit eisernem Besen auszufegen, um dann desto gründlicher wieder aufzubauen. Sie beseitigte den ewigen Zwiespalt zwischen Amateuren und professionals und schuf somit endlich eine einige deutsche Boxbewegung. Diese Bewegung nahm bald gigantische Ausmaße an."- Erstausgabe in guter Erhaltung - Sport im Nationalsozialismus, Preisboxer, arteigener Faustkampf, Schlüssel zum Faustkampf Boxen unabhängig von fremd rassischen Schulen und auf der Wurzel arischer Geisteshaltung und Seelenstruktur, Sportskameraden, Vorherrschaft der amerikanischen Kampfesweise, englischer Stilboxer, Boxkämpfer unter Bejahung der deutschen Rasseeigenheiten, deutscher Boxstil, Boxschule, geschichtliche Entwicklung des Boxstils, Ernährung für Boxer, Bodenübungen, Muskeltoilette, Lockerungsübungen, Lauftraining, Schlagtechnik bei Geraden, Konter als wirkungsvolle Waffe, rechter und linker Haken, Aufwärtshaken öffentlicher Zweikampf mit den Fäusten, deutscher Boxsport, Boxsportliteratur, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut, Adolf Hitler als Sportsfreund, der Führer als Freund des Boxens bzw. des Boxsports Bitte beachten Sie: Auf Grund der besonderen Versandkostenvorgaben vom ZVAB und Abebooks, kann es bei schwereren oder mehrbändigen Werken zu höheren Portokosten kommen, da der Pre [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Canada and Newfoundland Their Natural and Industrial Resources. During the World War...

      London.. Dated in plate 1942. Ca. late 1940s.. Color pictorial / pictographic map, 19 1/4 x 29 inches (49 x 73cm) on sheet 20 x 29 3/4 inches. Originally issued folded, now mounted on archival paper; tiny pinhead size infill at central fold intersection, short tear into lower right border now scarcely visible. Very good bright condition. One of a series of maps of the colonies highlighting their rich resources which was designed by MacDonald Gill in 1942 for the British Government; the poster was then issued over a period of several years with changing text in the decorative circle at lower left. This particular copy was issued in the immediate post-War years, the text reading: "During the World War the Dominion of Canada and her Atlantic neighbour, Newfoundland, threw all their material resources into the struggle. Canada's output of munitions, arms, ships, metal and food, was made possible by tremendous industrial growth. With these increased resources Canada moves forward to a great industrial future with added strength to help defend the peace." While the design emphasis is on clarity in visually portraying the wealth of resources, Gill's superior aesthetic sensibility is evident in the brilliant color, use of lettering and attractive design features such as the stylised steam from the boats off shore and the compass rose. A huge North West Territories stretches from the Yukon to the Hudson Bay and beyond the Arctic Circle; the Coast of Labrador is located above Quebec. The rich mineral wealth of Canada is clear from the colored symbols, with several marked in the north as "not yet developed." At lower left: "Printed in England by A. C. Ltd. 51-9322." At lower right: "O.P.D. 39/219/5." .

      [Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands, 1942. Sixty-two photographs, most 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Contemporary leatherette covers, string-tied to black album pages. Some edge wear to album. A few photos edgeworn, but overall the photos are in very nice condition. An astonishing, at times gut-wrenching, collection of photographs featuring the experiences of American military personnel in the wake of the Guadalcanal Campaign during World War II. The Guadalcanal Campaign, or the Battle of Guadalcanal, was an extended military campaign comprising several battles fought between August 1942 and February 1943. It was the first major offensive by Allied forces against Japan, and resulted in a valuable strategic victory for the Allies in the Pacific Theater. There are numerous photos of wounded subjects in this album, with eight grisly photos showing dead human casualties in various horrific conditions, likely all of the enemy, and including not one, but two photos featuring American soldiers posed with severed heads. In one, an African-American soldier smiles calmly while holding the maimed and severed head of a Japanese combatant. There are several action shots of the American soldiers in battle, with two photographs showing explosions, one shot of troops storming a beach, and one presumably showing a sinking submarine. The album also includes photos of downed aircraft and other after- effects of recent battle, including at least one shot of a destroyed Japanese transport ship, the Kinugawa Maru, which was attacked and sunk by American Marines just offshore of Guadalcanal on Nov. 15, 1942. In addition, there are several shots of native islanders, scenes of the American troops at mealtime and at prayer, troops on the march, and more. Two photographs contain images of morale-boosting signs posted on Guadalcanal and intended to encourage the American troops. One reads "KILL THE BASTARDS! Down this road marched one of the regiments of the United States Army...Twenty of their wounded in litters were bayoneted, shot and clubbed by the yellow bellies. KILL THE BASTARDS!" Another sign features a quote by Admiral Halsey, reading, "Admiral Halsey says 'Kill japs, kill japs, kill more japs!' You will help kill the yellow bastards if...YOU DO YOUR JOB WELL." The album concludes with several vernacular photographs of the soldier who owned this album, presumably taken after his return from the war. In one photo of three soldiers, the compiler identifies each subject, writing in pen "ME," "RICHY," and "WEB." He also poses with other soldiers, family members, and friends. The album was likely compiled from photographic prints available to soldiers just after the war, and mounted in the album by the soldier himself, or was perhaps prepared for, and dispersed to, American military personnel by the armed forces. In any case, it is a stunning photographic record of the stark realities of war in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.

        Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

      Philadelphia: David McKay Co., 1942. - A Finely Bound RubaiyatIllustrated by Willy PoganyPOGANY, Willy, illustrator. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald. Illustrations by Willy Pogany. Philadelphia: David McKay Co., [1942]. Small folio (9 7/8 x 7 1/16 inches; 250 x 180 mm.). [vii], 1-101, [1, printers mark] pp. Sixteen full-page and four smaller black & white drawings, all with decorative borders.Bound ca, 1942 by Maurin (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in). Full orange-brown morocco, covers ruled in gilt with a central 'arabesque' design surrounded by four richly gilt decorated corner pieces. Spine with four raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, gilt-ruled board edges, elaborate gilt turn-ins, marbled end-papers, top edge gilt.Very slight crack (but perfectly sound) at top of front joint, otherwise near fine.First published in 1859, Edward FitzGerald’s version of Omar Khayyam’s quatrains was widely read only after it was taken up by the Pre-Raphaelites in 1861. The height of the poem’s popularity corresponded with the heyday of the illustrated book, and such well-known illustrators as Willy Pogany, Edmund Dulac, René Bull and Frank Brangwyn received commissions to illustrate the poem. The drive to illustrate the Rubáiyat was given extra impetus first by the development from the 1860s onwards of wood-engraved colour illustrations and later, around the end of the century, by the coming of color halftone printing. The lushly exotic and sentimental colored illustrations, enabled by Victorian print technology, matched the melancholy hedonism of FitzGerald’s version of the Rubaiyat. Apart from the vast number of illustrated Rubáiyats, the proliferation of Omar Khayyam clubs was another manifestation of the cult. Their meetings furnished excuses for rumbustious drinking and the composition of appalling doggerel. The membership of London’s Omar Khayyam Club included an impressive number of convivial bookmen including Andrew Lang, Arthur Pinero, Arthur Conan Doyle and Edmund Gosse. Justin McCarthy, the politician and prolific hack novelist, presided. The literary dinners and the pastiches of Khayyam’s quatrains tended to stress the heedless bibulousness of the original work. But there is another aspect to the appeal of Khayyam to the Victorian and Edwardian reading public. The first version of the Rubáiyat had been published in 1859, the same year that Darwin’s Origin of the Species had appeared. A few years later, Matthew Arnold would publish "Dover Beach", in which the melancholy long retreat of the "Sea of Faith" left humanity on a "darkling plain". Already in 1850, in "In Memoriam", Tennyson had raised questions about Christian doctrine and the immortality of the soul, only to dismiss them with suspicious glibness. The doubts and fears of the twelfth-century Persian philosopher were shared by many of his English and American readers. In the Rubáiyat, as the day wears on, its mostly agnostic protagonist becomes increasingly preoccupied by thoughts of mortality and judgment in a possible afterlife, and this too perfectly matched the Victorian preoccupation with death. Deathbed scenes were a popular staple of fiction and the cowled figure stalked through quite a few novels.
