        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." .

        [STUNNING PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD OF GUADALCANAL DURING WORLD WAR II, WITH PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF AN AMERICAN SOLDIER AFTER HIS RETURN FROM THE WAR]

      [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.

        LEAVES OF GRASS.; With an introduction by Mark Van Doren and photographs by Edward Weston

      The Limited Editions Club, NY 1942 - 2 volumes. 4to., xxix, 123 pp.; 124-264 pp., 50 photographic plates. Illustrated boards with leather labels. There are barely perceptible spots of light rubbing at base of the spines and on the leather spine labels, otherwise these are fine and bright. Housed in the publisher's cloth slipcase with an edge rubbed paper label on spine. SIGNED by the photographer. In 1917, Edward (Henry) Weston was elected a member of the London Salon, then considered the highest honor in Pictorialism. Later that year, after learning of Stieglitz, Steichen and Strand's break with Pictorialism, he too repudiated Pictorialism; "That whole soft focus period in retrospect seems like a staged act; I even dressed to suit the part." Also in 1917, Weston claims to have started his famous DAYBOOKS, and a copy of LEAVES OF GRASS bearing Weston's signature has passed through this bookseller's hands. Although highly romantic, many regard Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS as a forerunner of modernism, long an influence to artists of all fields. To say that this book is responsible for Weston's transformation as an artist is to presume more than would seem reasonable without a direct statement from him; however, it can be said that Whitman's influence endured, for in 1941 Weston accepted a commission from the Limited Editions Club to illustrate a new edition of LEAVES OF GRASS, published in 1942 with 50 photos by Weston. Earlier, in 1930, Weston made this statement which rings of the influence of Whitman, "Life is a coherent whole: rocks, clouds, trees, shells, torsos, smokestacks, peppers are interrelated, interdependent parts of the whole. Rhythms from one become symbols of all." (See the article by Alan Trachtenberg "Edward Weston's America: The Leaves of Grass Project" in EW 100: CENTENNIAL ESSAYS IN HONOR OF EDWARD WESTON. Untitled 41, 1986.) Limited to 1500 copies, signed by Weston. [Attributes: First Edition]

        ORIGINAL TYPED LETTER, SIGNED

      State College, PA, 1942. original typed letter, addressed to "Miss Jane S Colten, 226 East Hancock Street, Detroit, Michigan" on two pieces of The Pennsylvania State College letterhead stationery. The recipient had written to Roethke requesting that he critique some of her poems. Included with the letter are two pieces of paper with six poems by Miss Colten. Roethke has annotated the manuscript with his many corrections and suggestions, all written using Roethke's signature green ink. The present offering is a terrific example of Roethke the teacher, freely giving his corrections and suggestions to a young woman who was obviously not a student in his classes at Pennsylvania State College. Throughout the letter, Roethke expounds upon his literary theory and poetics. He encourages Miss Colten to read the work of emerging modern poets, and lists by name who to read, and who not to read. The letter is both socially engaging and academically elucidating. A truly unique Roethke letter, ideal as a teaching tool. Folds for mailing, else very little wear, fine condition.

        Männliches Portrait, in Original Pastell-Kreide hinter Passepartout,

      (1942). 1942 - schönes signiertes Blatt. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger (* 30. Juni 1892 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 12. April 1966 in Karlsruhe) war ein deutscher Maler. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger zählt zu den Vertretern der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Er ist der Sohn eines Gymnasialprofessors und machte 1911 sein Abitur. Von 1911 bis 1915 besuchte er die Königliche Kunstgewerbeschule München und studierte parallel in München Architektur. Ab 1913 war er Schüler des Gebrauchsgrafikers Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke und ein Freund von Karl Rössing. 1918 wurde er zum Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg eingezogen. Er war 1919 für die Zeitschrift Der Weg und ab 1920 für die Zeitschriften Wieland und Simplicissimus tätig. Schnarrenberger unterrichtete von 1921 bis 1933 an der Badischen Landeskunstschule. 1924 war er Gründungsmitglied der ORNA-Werkstätten für Werbung und Innendekoration. Unter den Nationalsozialisten war seine Kunst verpönt und wurde 1937 als entartet gebrandmarkt und verboten, nachdem er bereits seit 1933 nicht mehr unterrichten durfte. 1933 übersiedelte er mit seiner Familie nach Berlin, wo er versuchte, als freischaffender Gebrauchsgrafiker seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Den bevorstehenden Krieg voraussehend zog er 1938 nach Lenzkirch im Schwarzwald, wo er zusammen mit seiner Frau Melitta (1909-1996) eine kleine Ferienpension eröffnete. Hier entdeckte er das für sein späteres Werk so wichtige Thema des Stilllebens. 1947 wurde er zum Professor an die Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe berufen. 1962 erhielt er für sein künstlerisches Werk den Hans-Thoma-Staatspreis. Schnarrenberger legte stets auf das handwerkliche Können seiner Schüler großen Wert, so mussten diese zuerst das Zeichnen von architektonischen Gebäuden und Alltagsgegenständen erlernen, bevor er sie malen ließ. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger war der ältere Bruder des Generalmajors der Wehrmacht Ernst Emil Schnarrenberger (* 27. Juli 1893 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 10. Juni 1966 in Bad Mergentheim).[1][2].

        Total War Battle Map.

      Winchester, MA.: Ernest Dudley Chase.. Copyright 1942.. Color pictorial map, 15 x 35 1/4 inches, on sheet 16 x 36 1/2 inches. Professionally mounted on linen, minimizing abrasion to fold lines. SIGNED IN PENCIL AT LOWER LEFT by the artist. Light discoloration along right vertical fold. An inspirational World War II map of the world designed and published by Ernest Dudley Chase with poetical note at lower centre: A Battle Map, to set the stage For "total war" on land and sea; And, in the border, just a hint - A prayer - for total victory! In addition, the cartouche declares: "Certain Victory Will be Ours!" The five border vignettes feature 'A Yank Tank,' 'Coast Artillery,' 'Mobile Field Gun,' 'Flying Fortress' and 'New Anti Aircraft Gun Mounts by Westinghouse.' Germany and Japan are marked in black. There is extensive treatment of the Pacific Islands, a major battle field. It is signed in pencil by the mapmaker with his full name Ernest Dudley Chase (his maps were often signed E.D.Chase). This map is often seen with red accents (to the V signs in the border, in the vignette images at map edges, to the title lettering) which are not present on this copy. The blue coloration is also different in quality from other examples (here a deeper, brighter color) suggesting that there were different printings made of this iconic map, designed to inspire the patriotism of the American public. .

        Original Pen-and-Ink Portrait of Mary Church Terrell, African-American Author and Club Woman

      [1942]. One of twelve portraits produced by acclaimed African-American artist Lois Mailou Jones for her 1942 calendar celebrating the lives and careers of fellow African-American women. The subject of this portrait, author, educator and activist Mary Church Terrell (1863-1954), was a major figure in the civil rights and suffrage movements of the early 20th century. She was one of the first African-American women to obtain a college degree (Oberlin, 1884) and the first ever appointed to a public school board (Washington, D.C., 1906). She would be one of the founding members of the NAACP in 1909. A representative and especially well-rendered example of Jones's pen-and-ink style of the period, which differed sharply from her later explorations of African tribal decorative motifs. Original pen-and-ink illustration, with hand-lettered descriptive text caption, for Jones's 1942 "Twelve American Women" calendar. Initialed in image at lower right of figure, "LJM". Image size approximately 20-1/2" x 12-1/2", on 27" x 20" sheet. Blank space for calendar sheet at center below image. A fine, bright example.

        SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH

      - A fine 7" x 9-1/4" informal photographic "head shot" portrait by Carl Van Vechten of a seventy-year old Dreiser with a smile bordering on a laugh. INSCRIBED and SIGNED at the bottom with fine contrast: "To lovely Helen/with love and/admiration-/from T.D./Hollywood/January--/1942." Helen Richardson first met Dreiser in 1919 and married him in 1944. Dreiser left his entire estate to her in his will and, after her death in 1955, she was buried next to him. In 1942, however, Dreiser and Helen were often apart with Dreiser often romantically involved with another woman. Just a few months after inscribing this photograph to his future wife, Dreiser had an eleven-day fling with one of his ardent female admirers. Still, Dreiser's inscription captures the great feeling he had for Helen from the beginning. W. A. Swanberg in his biography DREISER sums up well their relationship: "Although he still threatened at times to leave her, Dreiser needed Helen for survival, Helen knew that he needed her, and he knew that she knew" (p. 478).
