        Cross Creek Cookery

      Scribners, NY 1942 - "First published in 1942, ‘Cross Creek Cookery’ was compiled by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings at the request of readers who wanted to recreate the luscious meals described in ‘Cross Creek’ -- her famous memoir of life in a Florida hamlet. Lovers of old-fashioned, down-home cooking will treasure the recipes for Grits, Hush-Puppies, Florida Fried Fish, Orange Fluff, and Utterly Deadly Southern Pecan Pie. For more adventuresome palates, there are such unusual dishes as Minorcan Gopher Stew, Coot Surprise, Alligator-Tail Steak, Mayhaw Jelly, and Chef Huston's Cream of Peanut Soup. Spiced with delightful anecdotes and lore, ‘Cross Creek Cookery’ guides the reader through the rich culinary heritage of the deep tidal South with a loving regard for the rituals of cooking and eating. Anyone who longs for food - and writing - that warms the heart will find ample portions of both in this classic cookbook. [Pub. Info] Scribners" A"; desirable and collectible.

        [Exhibitor's Annual] RKO Radio Pictures 1940 1941

      Plastic spiral. Alligator on boards. . Fine. Lavish exhibitor's annual with splashy spreads on movies to be released in the upcoming year. Folio, 36 by 29 cm. Unpaginated, 27 leaves. Also with the original card stock envelope, whose preservation most definitely contributed to the near pristine condition of this copy of the Annual. The exhibitor's annual was a marketing tool used by the studio's to generate excitement among its exhibitors, who were a sense its most direct customers. To that end, no expense was spared for these publications. In this particular annual, the extravagance is manifest in its cover, in the flaps or movable pieces in a few of the advertisements, and the overall quality of the production. Nonetheless, because only a small number of these annuals were printed, combined with the ephemeral nature of the promotion, few copies survive. Because the annuals were about the movies on deck during the upcoming year, one finds titles and casts sometimes different than the final release, and there are projects scuttled and others spoken of in very general terms, such as "And a second adventure film with ___ yet to be announced." And this annual is no exception, with the most conspicuous example, the ad for Orson Welles in "'John Citizen, U.S.A.' and one other production". The former became, of course, "Citizen Kane", and the latter ended up becoming "The Magnificent Ambersons", which was released a year later, in 1942. Promised is also Cary Grant in "Passport to Life", to be directed by Garson Kanin, with the illustration and the title itself suggesing a melodrama of some sort. This film was never made. In its place, starring Grant and directed by Kanin, would be the screwball comedy, "My Favorite Wife". Other examples of unmade, or unreleased, movies are Anne Shirley in "I Married a Cheat", Charles Boyer in "Ariane Pretends", Ginger Rogers in "Two on an Island", Maureen O'Hara in "Three Girls and a Gob", and Ronald Colman in "One Production". Titles were to be changed for several Lupe Velez projects. The ad for "Kitty Foyle", the movie for which Ginger Rogers was to win her Oscar, has a flap which replicates the cover of the novel. Lifting the flap reveals a brochure reprint of a Life article about the novel. A similar book cover flap is used for "Sister Carrie", a movie that was not then made. (A Paramount version would be released in 1952 with the title "Carrie".) Movies touted, and made in a form that correlates generally with the promo, include "Too Many Girls", "The Devil and Miss Jones", "Men Against the Sky", "No, No, Nanette", "Mr and Mrs. Smith", "Tom, Dick and Harry", and on and on. Other elements of interest are pages devoted to the RKO producers, directors and writers. RKO also had an arrangement with Disney, and so touted are "Mr. Duck steps out" and other one reelers. With only the most superficial signs of wear, close to mint.

        The Masculine Dead Poems, 1938-1940

      Prairie City, IL: Press of James A. Decker. Very Good. 1942. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. SIGNED EDITION. This book is in Very Good to Near Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The text pages are mostly clean and bright. The endpapers have noticeable toning as does the title page. This copy has been signed by William Everson as William Everson (dated 1944) with an inscription, and signed again in 1962 as Brother Antoninus. This is the author's third book of poetry and is quite scarce. From Wikipedia: "Everson was an influential member of the San Francisco Renaissance in poetry and worked closely with Kenneth Rexroth during this period of his life. Throughout his life, Everson was a devotee of the work and lifestyle of poet Robinson Jeffers. Much of his work as a critic was done on Jeffers's poetry.Everson registered as an anarchist and a pacifist with his draft board, in compliance with the 1940 draft bill. In 1943, he was sent to a Civilian Public Service (CPS) work camp for conscientious objectors in Oregon.[1] In Camp Angel at Waldport, Oregon, with other poets, artists and actors such as Kemper Nomland, William Eshelman, Kermit Sheets, Glen Coffield, George Woodcock and Kenneth Patchen, he founded a fine-arts program in which the CPS men staged plays and poetry-readings and learned the craft of fine printing." ; Signed by Author .

        Now and On Earth

      Modern Age, 1942 First Edition of the author's first book, in the scarce dust jacket. One of three hardcover titles issued under his name before moving to a career of writing paperback originals. Modern Age was a short-lived entity, very nearly a vanity press, and copies of any of their books have always verged on unattainability. "Now and on Earth" could be described as both autobiographical and Steinbeck-esque, but with Thompson's inimitable writing style fully formed. The story concerns a worker in a World War I aircraft factory who has a struggling family and few prospects, flirting constantly with temptations that could rid him of both. Very good in an unrestored dust jacket. A few tears and chips in a few pages in the rear of the book, not affecting any print. Housed in a custom-made quarter leather solander case.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good.

        THE BEATLES (Signed photograph)

      INSCRIBED "To Carol" and signed by all four Beatles, on the verso of an early original black and white 8" x 10" of the Fab Four, taken on a street in London. Ringo's autograph in light brown ink, the others in bold dark blue. Framed in a museum quality frame, showing the autographs, an engraved biography of the Beatles and a handsome color photo of the Boys. The Beatles were certainly one of the most popular and successful musical groups of the 20th century. The group consisted of: Paul McCartney. b. June 18, 1942. Ringo Starr. b. Richard Starkey. July 7, 1940. John Lennon. b. October.9, 1940-d.1980 George Harrison. b. February 25, 1943-d.November 29, 2001. All were born in Liverpool, England or suburbs. They were awarded the M.B.E. (Member of the Order of the British Empire) title by the Queen in 1964. Lennon and McCartney composed hundreds of songs and may were held in high regard by serious musicians. The Beatles will be remembered for their music. Lennon and McCartney wrote the words and music for the documentary "All This and World War II" (1976), and McCartney composed songs for several films, notably "Live and Let Die" (1973). It is truly hard to locate anything signed by all four together. All our autographs are unconditionally guaranteed to be authentic.

        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

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1942-1946. First edition, mixed printings. Hardcover. 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.
