In a 1965 interview Welty recalled The Robber Bridegroom: “I had such a good time writing it! I had been working for the WPA or for the Mississippi Advertising Commission ... I had to do a lot of reading on the Natchez Trace ... Reading these primary sources ... fired my imagination. I thought how much like fairy tales all those things were. And so I just sat down and wrote The Robber Bridegroom in a great spurt of pleasure”. (Prenshaw, Conversations with Eudora Welty, 24). The result became the model for a new kind of novel, one now recognized as a modern American classic .

Kapitel steht schon und das zweite ist im Werden. Das Material ist riesig, aber dadurch ist es auch so aufhellend, dass ich vorläufig noch gar nicht im Dunkeln tappte, wie es mir so oft bei Arbeiten passiert. Mich interessiert’s namenlos: da das aber so lange Zeit erfordert, so kann ich mich publizistisch nur mit kleinen Sachen nebenher spielen und davon schicke ich Ihnen eine Probe, die ich eigentlich für die Soldaten gemacht habe. Ich glaube die Ausstattung ist diesmal gelungen. Sonst ist noch ein geheimer Zweck vorhanden: Leuten, die nie dazu zu bringen sind, ein wirkliches Geschichtswerk zu lesen, via Anekdote genannter leichter Erzählungen ein bißchen Geschichtskenntnis einzuflössen [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 1. Mai 1942). – Conte Cortis „Marie Caroline" sollte 1950 unter dem Titel „Ich, eine Tochter Maria Theresias.

Kämmerers quittierte 1918 seine militärische Laufbahn, studierte Geschichte und lebte als freier Schriftsteller in Wien. Conte Corti verfaßte „historisch genaue biographische Romane" (Czeike I, 593), so etwa „Maximilian und Charlotte von Mexiko" (1924). – Meist mit kleineren Randläsuren und einrissen sowie mit tls. stärkeren Faltspuren und etwas knittrig.

Apparently he was also the designer of the advertisement posters for his theatre and this is an example of such pictures. The puppet that jumps as the head of a spiral with shouting face expression is the caricature self-portrait of Rév.

      s.l.|(Paris): S.n. (Journal des débats), 1942. Fine. S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1942), 13,5x21,5cm & 4 pages in-4, 4 1/2 pages in-8. - Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated 23 December 1942 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the publication of several new novels, including "The sun rises" Marius Grout. Full typescript is attached. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought. " (C. Bident). The autograph manuscripts of Maurice Blanchot are of great rarity. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 2 pages et demie in-4 publiée dans le numéro du 23 Décembre 1942 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire publiée à l'occasion de la parution de plusieurs nouveaux romans dont "Le jour se lève" de Marius Grout. On joint le tapuscrit complet. Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au cœur même d'un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l'écho de l'impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (...) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d'une œuvre qui commence (...) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d'un critique qui a transformé l'occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d'une grande rareté.

        TARZAN OF THE APES (Signed By the Author AND Maureen O'Sullivan "JANE")

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1942. Burroughs, Edgar Rice. TARZAN OF THE APES. NY: Grosset & Dunlap, (c. 1942). Reprint edition of the very first Tarzan tale SIGNED BY BOTH BURROUGHS and MAUREEN O' SULLIVAN. Burroughs' signature comes first and then the actress who played "Jane" in six Tarzan films (1932-1942) writes "&" followed by her signature. Judging by the matching ink, proximity of the signatures, and the actress' use of the ampersand, there is the distinct possibility that the autographs were acquired at the same time. A Very Good copy (some light finger-soiling to cloth, stain to top-edge) in a Good to Very Good original dust jacket which is chipped at the spine tips and edges and, in general, moderately used. Actor-signed source books are highly collectable and rarely encountered.. Signed. Decorative Cloth. Very Good/Very Good.

        The Problems of Lasting Peace

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran and Company, Inc. 1942 - 8vo., blue cloth lettered in gilt; slightly sunned spine. First edition. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Philip C. Jessup, with the kind regards of Herbert Hoover," additionally signed by Hugh Gibson, on the front free endpaper. ---- Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a U.S. representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a member of the International Court of Justice at The Hague. He also served as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then-Secretary of State Dean Acheson. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. Meanwhile, at the request of President Truman, Herbert Hoover made several relief trips, supported the Marshall Plan, and called for the rehabilitation of Germany and Japan, positions also advocated by Jessup. A significant presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        In the midst of World War II, Shaw writes about the future of democracy, mentioning Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, and Hitler, commenting, "Democracy is indestructible; but the world is strewn with the ruins of empires." Over 30 words in his hand!

      n.p., March 10, 1942. 8" x 10". "Typed Manuscript Signed ""Exclusive to Miss Dorothy Royal / G. Bernard Shaw / 10/3/1942"" and additionally annotated, 6 pages, 8"" x 10"", separate sheets, pages numbered by Shaw. No place, March 10, 1942. Upper margins (with original questions) clipped and reattached, chips at margins, penciled editor's marks throughout, light soiling. Fine condition.In this questionnaire, Shaw provides answers to six questions submitted to the playwright by journalist Dorothy Royal of London Sunday Express in early 1942. Titled, most probably by Royal: ""Democracy is indestructable says George Bernard Shaw in a Questionnaire submitted by Dorothy Royal.""Excerpts(1) Do you think that, in the event of the complete victory of Great Britain, the U.S.A., Russia and China, the form of National Socialism called Nazism or Fascism would be entirely destroyed in Germany and Italy? ""... Russia is up to the neck in National Socialism and all the rest are up to the knees in it. None of them could exist for a week without a good deal of National Communism...""(2) Assuming that the war lasts some years longer than Winston Churchill anticipates, do you think it possible that, all the belligerents becoming war weary, a negotiated peace will result? ""Any peace must be a negotiated peace, unless it is the peace of extermination of the vanquished ... Even Versailles, where the vanquished were pitilessly steam-rollered, had to be negotiated.""(3) Assuming the almost impossible happening; would to defeat of the Allies result in the disintegration and downfall of the British Empire? Would this mean the enslavement of Europe and the destruction of democracy? In war nothing is impossible; and its results are never expected by the belligerents. If the Allies are defeated we shall have to do what the German Führer orders: that is all ... But at this time the old British Empire is already disintegrated in the Far East and badly cracked in the Nearest West, now called Eire ... If China recaptures Hong Kong, Singapore, and Burma, she can hardly she expected to make us a present of them ... We may have to drop India as we have had to drop Eire, and leave her to become an independent federation like the U.S.A. or the U.S.S.R. These are all possibilities ... If they are realized, the fat will be in the fire again, with Roosevelt and Churchill contra mundum ... Democracy is indestructible; but the world is strewn with the ruins of empires."" (4) Do you regard Hitler, judged by the atrocities committed in Poland, Holland and Belgrade, to be the enemy of the human race and would you suggest that he and his associates in guilt should, if defeated and captured, be tried by an international jury and dealt with as common felons? ""This is only the old Hang the Kaiser rubbish over again. Adolf Hitler may be in some danger in Germany if he provokes a revolution there; but if he escapes this all he will have to do is to step across the frontier into neutral Switzerland to be as safe as the Kaiser was at Doorn."" Shaw has handwritten: ""If we start recriminating about atrocities he has only to say 'He that is without sin among you let him cast the first stone.'""(5) If Russia wins a complete victory over Germany and thereby ends the war as far as Europe is concerned, do you think that the various countries will adopt communism and federate with the Soviets, or will they continue as Kingdoms and republics under capitalistic conditions? ""Each country will have its own problem, its own readiness for more or less communism. Without a good real of communism no State, no tribe even, can exist at all ... The U.S.S.R. cannot take on the whole world...""(6) Whom do you think is the greatest man this war has yet produced? ""Stalin, of course; but then he is not a product of this war. No other living statesman has been through such a terrific apprenticeship. Others who went through it have been killed by it or had their heads turned. Stalin alone has taken it easily without losing his sense of humor."""

        SPECIAL ATTACK FLOTILLA

      Tokyo: Japan Times, 1942.. [8],82,[1]pp. plus frontispiece and twenty-three pages of photographs. Quarto. Half-title. Original green cloth, gilt, with two string ties. Minor sunning around the edges, light wear along the spine and front joint. Internally clean and bright. Very good. First and only edition of a very rare volume of Japanese propaganda, curiously published in English at the height of the battle for the Pacific in World War II. Subtitled BUSHIDO IN THE WAR OF GREATER EAST ASIA on the half-title page, it is a tribute to the nine Japanese sailors who launched an undersea attack on the United States fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, December 7, 1941 in a "Special Attack Flotilla" of two-man "midget" submarines. None of them survived. The sailors were treated as heroes and the text is nothing short of worshipful of the "Hero Gods". Includes a fantastic account of the attack, biographies of each of the crew members and skippers, the text of their final letters to their families, an interview of the Japanese Chief of the Naval Press Section of the Imperial Headquarters by Japanese novelist Eiji Yoshikawa and more. The closing text advises: "The end of the War of Greater East Asia is still far off. In order to gain a final victory, the present total war must be fought with unflagging energy to a finish, and for this purpose the nation must form an even firmer resolution to gain complete mastery of all seas." It is not at all clear why this work was published in English, as the colophon, printed in Japanese at the end of the text, warns that it is not for sale; this warning does not appear in English anywhere in the book. OCLC locates only six copies (three in the United States). OCLC 3530134, 12420612.

        My Fifty Years of Chess

      vi+242 pages with 13 illustrations, portraits and diagrams with index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering with in a black box on cover and spine in original red dust jacket with a picture of Marshall on front cover and white lettering. Volume 2 in the chess classic series. Signed limited edition of which this is 1501942 of 500 copies. (Betts: 29-72) This signed limited edition in not referenced in Betts. First edition.Frank James Marshall (August 10, 1877 ?" November 9, 1944) was the U.S. Chess Champion from 1909 to 1936, and one of the world's strongest chess players in the early part of the 20th century. Marshall was born in New York City, and lived in Montreal, Canada, from age 8 to 19. He began playing chess at the age of 10, and by 1890 (aged 13) was one of the leading players in Montreal. He won the 1904 Cambridge Springs International Chess Congress (scoring 13/15, ahead of World Champion Emanuel Lasker) and the U.S. congress in 1904, but did not get the national title because the U.S. champion at that time, Harry Nelson Pillsbury, did not compete. In 1906 Pillsbury died and Marshall again refused the championship title until he won it in competition in 1909. In 1907 he played a match against World Champion Emanuel Lasker for the title and lost eight games, winning none and drawing seven. They played their match in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Chicago, and Memphis from January 26 to April 8, 1907. Marshall finished fifth at the St. Petersburg tournament in 1914, behind World Champion Lasker, future World Champions Capablanca and Alekhine, and former World Championship challenger Tarrasch, but ahead of the players who did not qualify for the final: Ossip Bernstein, Rubinstein, Nimzowitsch, Blackburne, Janowski, and Gunsberg. In 1915 Marshall opened the Marshall Chess Club in New York City. In the 1930s Marshall captained the U.S. team to four gold medals at four Chess Olympiads. During one round, he returned to the board and found that his teammates had agreed to three draws. After he finished his own game, he gave each of them a stern talk individually on how draws do not win matches.Marshall was best known for his great tactical skill. One aspect of this was the "Marshall swindle", where a trick would turn a lost game around. Andrew Soltis writes that, "In later years his prowess at rescuing the irretrievable took on magical proportions". Not so well known now, but appreciated in his day, was his endgame skill.Condition:Jacket spine sunned, corners chipped, spine ends chipped else a very good to fine copy in a very good jacket.
