        Into Battle, the first volume of Churchill's war speeches, with a wartime inscription from Churchill to his War Office photographer, accompanied by a full set of British first editions, first printings - The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, and Secret Session Speeches

      Cassell and Company Ltd. 1942-1946, London - This a full set of seven British first editions of Churchill’s war speeches volumes. The first volume, Into Battle, is a significant association copy, inscribed to Churchill's War Office official photographer. The inked, five-line inscription on the first free endpaper reads: "Winston S. Churchill | To | Major | W. G. Horton | With best wishes". Into Battle is the first edition, tenth printing of December 1943. The other six volumes are first edition, first printing. The War Office assigned Major William G. Horton to Churchill throughout the Second World War. Horton began the war as a captain and was with Churchill for the secret "Atlantic Conference" in Placentia Bay off Newfoundland. On 10 August 1941 Horton took a famous photo of Churchill welcoming President Roosevelt and his son, Elliott, aboard HMS Prince of Wales, developing the image in time to have it signed by both Churchill and Roosevelt. In December 1941, Horton was again with Churchill for the voyage on the Duke of York to meet Roosevelt and address the U.S. Congress and Canadian Parliament. The Imperial War Museum holds numerous wartime images of Churchill taken by Horton, including another notable photo of Churchill in June 1942 making a radio address at his 10 Downing Street desk, clad in his 'siren suit'. In December 1942, as a Christmas gift, Churchill inscribed a copy of The Unrelenting Struggle to then still Captain Horton. Horton's War Office assignment to Churchill lasted the war. Horton took photographs on 21 February 1944 of Churchill inspecting bomb damage outside 10 Downing Street from a German raid the night before. (Gilbert, Volume VI, p.689, image No.21 at p.684) And on 8 May 1945, Horton photographed Churchill giving his WWII victory radio broadcast from 10 Downing Street. During the war, Horton was promoted from Captain to Major, certainly with Churchill's blessing, plausibly at his instigation. Into Battle contains speeches from May 1938, when Churchill was still out of favor and out of power, to November 1940, six months after Churchill became wartime Prime Minister. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." William G. Horton witnessed and chronicled this time, making many of the images that illustrate Churchill's wartime narrative. Though the inscription is undated, it likely occurred between December 1943 publication of this tenth printing and May 1945 publication of the eleventh printing, and thus before Churchill's wartime premiership ended in July 1945. Whether this volume was to congratulate Horton's promotion to Major is unknown. Either way, it is an important wartime inscription, substantiating an association that spanned Churchill's wartime premiership. The inscribed volume is near-fine. The binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, a small indentation to the front cover, and trivial wear to extremities. The contents are bright and clean with just a hint of page edge spotting. The dust jacket is about very good, unclipped with wear to extremities and hinges, minor chipping to edges and spine ends, and closed tears at the lower front hinge and upper front flap fold. The other six volumes are all first edition, first printing, extremely clean and bright copies, near fine or better in correct first printing dust jackets that are very good plus or better. Volumes II & VI are not only first edition, but first state, denoted by pagination errors. Though all six dust jackets are neatly price-clipped, all are unusually bright with only minor wear. The only notable flaw is a .75 inch closed tear and associated wrinkling near the head of the Volume IV spine. All seven dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.

        Two-page autograph working draft of key passages from Churchill's address to the Conservative Party Central Council.

      Caxton Hall: 26 March,, 1942. 2 leaves quarto, wove paper embossed "G.R." in the top left-hand corner, manuscript rectos only, fastened with a pin to a neatly torn half sheet of the same stationery bearing a typed note identifying the speech. Faint rust-marking verso of the second leaf, otherwise very good. Heavily amended manuscript representing early drafts of two key paragraphs - of ten as published (Eade, The War Speeches, II, pp229-232) - with considerable differences from the final version, and showing all the signs of the flow of rapid composition and revision - palpable evidence of a mind at work. Material of this nature is seldom encountered on the market. Against a background of "an almost unbroken series of military misfortunes" - the Eighth Army driven from Cyrenaica, the loss of Greece and Crete, the fall of Hong Kong, the disaster of Singapore, and severe set-backs in the Battle of the Atlantic - Churchill delivers a powerful appeal for national unity, calling for harmony and understanding in the service of a greater cause. In the first excerpt he appeals for personal sympathy in the view of the enormity of his task; "We are certainly aided by a great volume of criticism & advice from which we will always endeavour to profit in the highest degree Â… there may sometimes steal across the mind a feeling of impatience with the airy & jaunty detachment of some of those critics who feel so confident of their knowledge & so sure that they c[oul]d put things right. If ever I yield to such temptation, I hope you will remember how difficult it is to combine an attitude of proper meekness & humility towards assailants at home, with those combative & pugnacious qualities, that spirit of the offensive and counter-attack which we are all agreed were never more needful against the foreign enemy." The second paragraph relates the need for this spirit of conciliation to Britain's world historic rôle; "This is a v[er]y hard war. Its worrisome & fearful problems reach down to the v[er]y foundations of human society. Its scope is world wide. It involves all nations & every man woman & child in them Â… We must aid each other. We must stand by each other. We must confront all perils & trials with a national unity that cannot be broken, with a national force that is inexhaustible Â… with that inflexible will power to endure & yet to dare for w[hic]h our island has been long renowned. Thus alone shall we be worthy champions of the Grand Alliance Â… w[hic]h without our resistance w[oul]d never have come into being, but which now has only to march together till Tyranny is trampled down." A superb piece of Churchillian rhetoric, focusing and personalizing the task at hand, then opening it out, inclusively, to embody his conception of Britain's historic destiny. This portion of the manuscript was clearly gifted by Churchill soon after it was written, the typed "label" is on the same paper stock as the manuscript itself, and the typed note amended in pencil in his hand clarifying that this is "part of" the manuscript. A highly desirable vestige of Churchill's creative process.

        Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy

      New York: Harper & Brothers,, [1942]. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Spine slightly rolled, small bump to head of front cover, tips lightly bumped and a little worn, internally fine; an excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy was Schumpeter's most important and controversial book, a philosophical analysis of economics and history in which he coined the term "creative destruction". Blaug, who calls this his masterpiece, notes that in this work, Schumpeter "paradoxically rejected the Marxian diagnosis of the imminent breakdown of capitalism and, at the same time, predicted the almost inevitable arrival of socialism as a result of the betrayal of capitalist values by the intellectuals of the western world" (Great Economists Before Keynes, p. 216). Scarce.

        Photo Album]: German Soldiers in Minsk and Greater Belarus during World War II

      Belarus; Minsk 1942 - Small quarto. Measuring 8" x 9.5". Maroon pebbled cloth over paper boards. Contains 181 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 3.5" x 5.5", without captions. Album is near fine with near fine photographs with occasional creasing.A photo album kept by an unnamed German soldier while stationed in Belarus and Minsk during World War II. Belarus was occupied by Nazi Germany from 1941 until 1944. During this time one of the largest ghettos in Eastern Europe was created in Minsk housing roughly 100,000 Jews most of whom were killed during their internment. German soldiers stayed in the city and can be seen throughout the album practicing with firearms, marching through the streets in formation, and participating in the company marching band. The death toll on both sides was substantial amounting to a total of 2,230,000 people killed in Belarus during the occupation. Numerous German grave sites are pictured here, some marked with the Iron Cross, as well as a funeral procession for one of the men. High ranking officers are seen posing for photos as well as in candids while addressing their troops. Soldiers are depicted loading trucks and being transported via train. The nearly empty streets of Belarus are shown with photos of buildings, churches, and views of Minsk from a rooftop as well as rundown barns and buildings. One photo shows two men writing letters, another shows a group of soldiers having a drink outside. Later in the album the troops are seen in the snow, digging trenches, using carts pulled by horses, and standing at attention on patrol. An interesting compilation of arresting images depicting the occupation of Belarus in World War II from a German perspective. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Pierre Mac Orlan a écrit à son sujet : « Lobel-Riche fut toujours un artiste profondément attiré par les disciplines éprises de calme et d'équilibre, que la beauté féminine domine quand elle a dépassé les créations un peu faciles de la galanterie. Dans le monde de ses dessins classiques et savants dans leur classicisme, la lumière originelle est celle de la beauté conçue dans les mythologies esthétiques. » Edition illustrée [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Emei zhi wu tu zhi Icones plantarum omeiensium

      Chengdu: The National Szechuan University, 1942. Vol I, number 1 only, folio. (14 1/4 x 9 1/4 inches). Parallel title and text in Chinese and English. 50 lithographic plates, titled in Chinese and English. Later green cloth covered boards by Pan Iordanidis, sections of original wrappers loosely inserted A significant and beautifully-presented fragment of this amazing work. A survey of the spectacularly varied botany of the world heritage site Mount Emei and its environs, in Sichuan province. Mount Emei is the tallest of the four Sacred Buddhist Mountains in China. Produced at the height of the second World War, this work is beautifully presented with carefully designed and botanically accurate lithographs which recall the long Chinese tradition of woodcut illustrations. The informative text includes the plants botanical bi-nomial, the family to which it belongs, where it was first recorded, a detailed technical description, notes of the specific locations of examples examined for the publication, and then generally-short notes by W.P. Fang about the plant. This is the first number of a series that by 1946 had been extended to two volumes, made up from a total of four numbers, with 200 plates. This volume is particularly rich in images and descriptions of Rhododenrons - 20 different varieties are described. This was a species in which W.P. Fang came to specialise, and during his long career, he identified more than 100 new species of plants. He is now considered to have been one of the most distinguished Chinese botanists.

        Go Down, Moses and Other Stories.

      New York: Random House, 1942 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom black cloth solander box. An exceptional copy in the bright unclipped jacket, with tiny chip to upper tip of rear panel expertly repaired. First trade edition, first printing. From the library of Stephen Longstreet (1907–2002), with his signature to the front pastedown. Longstreet, an author and screenwriter who wrote over 100 novels, was also renowned as an artist, publishing five books on jazz illustrated with his own drawings and watercolours; his artwork includes portraits of jazz artists such as Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington. Longstreet first met Faulkner in 1937 at Random House, just before Longstreet's first novel was commissioned. The two men became drinking companions, and Faulkner calmed Longstreet's "first writer shakes", saying "'Yo' just keep the words coming. No trick to it all if the writing is in yo'. Nothing will come if yo' haven't got the stuff.'" Later, in 1944, Longstreet persuaded Warner Bros to hire Faulkner as a screenwriter when he was in tightened financial straits. To Longstreet's dismay, Faulkner's first assignment was his own novel Stallion Road. Faulkner's response to Longstreet was: "'I don't think much of yo' young writers, but they are paying me for this, so I'll go through it'". The resulting script was "'a magnificent thing utterly impossible to be made into a trite movie of the period'", and Longstreet told Faulkner that, though the script would have to be rejected, he liked it for "its quivering alertness". He was touched to find that, although not given to signing books, the next day Faulkner had signed the six copies of his works that Longstreet then kept in the office. "'Some ardent but dishonest Faulkner collector'" stole four of the books the following day; Longstreet retained The Wild Palms, and gave away the other remaining book to another writer.

        Merida en el ano de mil novecientos cuarenta y dos.

      Mexico 1942 - Only edition, limited to 300 copies, signed and numbered. Quarto portfolio with ties, pp xvi, 50 silver gelatin black and white photos, mounted on heavy card stock with backing. Wonderful, moody black and white studies of architecture in Merida. Cervantes (1868-1953) was a prominent engineer and restorer of ancient monuments in Mexico. Among his major publications, however, are collections of photographs of colonial Mexican cities. His photographic views of Mexican cities -- he did 9 of them, this being his last - were all done in the same format and included original photographic prints mounted individually on card stock and enclosed in a decorative portfolio with ties. Over the years they have been become desireable for their artistry. His eye for colonial architecture is very fine. He also published several volumes on Puebla tile-work, and enamel ware from Uruapan -- all virtually self-published. This particular volume is the finest I have ever seen condition-wise; virtually as new. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
