        The works of Flavius Josephus. Containing, I. The life of Josephus, as written by himself. II. The antiquities of the Jewish people; with a defense of those antiquities, in answer to Apion. III. The history of the martyrdom of the Maccabees; and the wars of the Jews with the neighbouring nations till the final destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman power. IV. Account of Philo's ambassy from the Jews of Alexandria, to the Emperor Caius Caligula.

      First edition, "Newly Translated from the Original Greek, by Ebenezer Thompson, D.D. and William Charles Price, L.L.D." Josephus (b. A.D. 37) provides one of the very few non-biblical sources of Jewish history; the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, though noting the author's lack of prestige among Talmudic rabbis and his tendency to "omit and add" where he saw fit, says, "Writing a history of the Jews which non-Jews would read and believe, Josephus was an innovator in bringing together references to the Jews to be found in non-Jewish histories" (1942 ed., VI, 200). The 1910 edition of the Catholic Encyclopedia adds that these works are "our only sources for many historical events . . . the value of the statements is enhanced by the insertion of dates which are otherwise wanting, and by the citation of authentic documents which confirm and supplement the Biblical narrative." The two volumes are illustrated with a total of => 69 copper-engraved plates (out of 70 called for), including a number of maps, all engraved by several different hands after the work of various artists.

        [Original Pen and Ink Drawing]: First Lady of Haiti [Madame Elie Lescot]

      1942. Original pen and ink drawing for a rare 1942 calendar celebrating African-American women which was titled "Twelve American Women." Portrait is approximately 12.5" x 20.5"; framed 20." x 27.5". Signed and additionally titled in her hand by Jones, and with nine lines of handwritten text about the modest accomplishments of Lescot (mostly about her social graces when her husband was ambassador in Washington), and she has drawn an additional Haitian symbol incorporating "L'Union fait la Force" on both sides, written beneath the drawing "Pen and ink drawing." Between the two symbols is the only printed element, a small calendar for September. Madame Lescot was the second wife of Elie Lescot. His regime was made up largely of light-skinned Haitians. They went into exile in 1946 when they were replaced by a military junta. The accomplishments of Lois Mailou Jones were considerably more plentiful than those of Madame Lescot, she was one of the most influential female African-American artist of the 20th Century, beginning in the late Harlem Renaissance when she exhibited at the Harmon Foundation. She married the Haitian artist Louis Vergniaud Pierre-Noel, and split her time between Haiti, New York, and Paris. Unlike her watercolors which tend to be impressionistic landscapes, this is a precise and detailed portrait of an African-American woman. .

        WITNESS TREE

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1942. First edition, first printing, A VERY FINE ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY ROBERT FROST, to a friend and colleague at Harvard University WITH A HANDWRITTEN POEM, SIGNED and dated by him. With portrait frontispiece from a sketch by Enit Kaufman. 8vo, original blue/green buckram lettered in gilt within a gilt framework on the upper cover and gilt lettered on the spine, in the publisher's original dustjacket. 63, notes pp. A fine copy, the book near perfect, the jacket a bit mellowed at the spine panel and with minor edge wear. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING AND A FINE AND SCARCE SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY WITH A HANDWRITTEN POEM BY ROBERT FROST. The book is inscribed by Frost to Virginia Proctor, secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. Though Frost tenure at Harvard was short, his friendship with Mrs. Proctor lasted well beyond his years in Cambridge. It was President Conant who first cited Frost as "The Poet of New England" when Frost was given an honorary degree of Litt.D. in 1937. In 1938 Frost resigned from Amherst and was elected to Harvard's Board of Overseers and that year also saw him placed in the English department at the university. Conant reappointed Frost for the years 1939 through 1942. This book was inscribed to Ms. Proctor at roughly the end of the academic year, in late April, on the 23rd, publication day of the book, during his last year at Harvard. Though Frost's formal ties with Harvard would end in that year, his association with Virginia Proctor would continue for many years following. INCLUDED WITH HIS INSCRIPTION TO PROCTOR IS THE HANDWRITTEN TWO-LINE POEM 'THE SECRET SITS', which is published on page 72 of the book. Thus, the entire inscription reads;"We dance round in a ring and suppose / But the secret sits in the middle and knows / Robert Frost / To Virginia Proctor / April 23 1942 / Harvard In addition to the poem Mr. Frost has penned in his inscription, A WITNESS TREE includes 44 others, including such classics as ?Come In?, ?The Gift Outright?, ?The Lesson for Today?, ?The Rabbit Hunter? and ?Trespass?.

        Merida en el ano de mil novecientos cuarenta y dos

      Mexico, 1942. First printing. 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.

        The German Supply Problem on the Eastern Front.

      [Washington, D. C. ?] Office of Strategic Services,, 1942. (June 22 - December 6, 1941). Monograph No. 6. Prepared by Economics Division Research and Analysis Branch Coordinator of Information. Square octavo (269 x 205 mm). Original pale blue wrappers secured by a metal clasp. Carbon copy typescript. 5 plates (one map of the Eastern Front, 4 diagrams showing rainfall). Library stamps on front cover and title page: "War Office Library, 10 Jan 1955".Wrappers a little used, peripheral red stain at foot of back wrapper and a handful of leaves. In good condition considering its fragile nature and provenance. First and sole edition, very scarce: OCLC records just 3 copies in institutional libraries worldwide (Hoover Institute, US Army Heritage & Education Center, Harvard), Copac locates no copies in British and Irish institutional libraries. There are three variants recorded by OCLC with either the imprint of the Office of the Coordinator of Information (COI) or the United States Department of State Office of Intelligence Research, or our copy, with the imprint of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), which would seem to be the same as that at Harvard. In 1942 Roosevelt split the functions of the COI to form the OSS and the Office of War Information. There is a fascinating, and lengthy, description of this work online at the CIA Library, but here is an extract: "If transport had been a bottleneck for [the Germans] in 1941, the Allies could be more sanguine about 1942 and would know better what their own strategy should be. But had it? The task of answering this question was undertaken by the Office of the Coordinator of Information, a six-months-old hybrid soon to be split into the Office of Strategic Services and the Office of War Information, and specifically by its Research and Analysis Branch, a constellation of brains assembled by Wild Bill Donovan which was to become in one way or another the progenitor of many a production component in the present-day intelligence community. Before the winter was over these analysts had resolved the thousand and one shadowy unknowns of the problem into tables of hard figures on the German forces' supply requirements and the capacity of transport to their front lines and issued a 166-page report entitled The German Supply Problem on the Eastern Front (June 22-December 6,1941). This was the first historic effort to devise a methodology for military-economic studies of a kind that are now routine in the intelligence community, and if the techniques used and the resulting estimates seem crude, it is because there was no background of previous experience or knowledge from which to draw. Moreover, the analysts found that in those first months of U.S. involvement in the war the information available in government offices here was incredibly meager. They had to build up their estimates of German troop strength, for example, by attempting to reconstruct the campaign day by day and division by division from the New York Times. No one in Army Ordnance could give the slightest clue as to the probable expenditure of ammunition in various types of fighting. The analysts could not go either to experts or to sources; they had to become the one and to invent the other".

        Photo Album - WWII - Papua New Guinea - USO Celebrities - Bob Hope & Jack Benny

      Papua New Guinea, 1942. Papua New Guinea, 1942-1945. Album of photographs taken by a U.S. Army private who served under General Woodruff in Papua New Guinea and Japan during World War II, illustrating interaction with indigenous Papuan tribes and their customs, and also featuring rare snapshot photographs of famous American USO celebrities. Oblong Quarto album, navy blue paper covers with army inspired eagle insignia to front, containing 107 photographs and 12 photographic postcards. The postcards and a scant few photographs are from Japan. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 5,5 x 8 cm, and the largest approximately 12 x 10 cm, each pasted to cardstock leafs. Wear to boards, scant few photographs creased, otherwise in Very Good Condition. A unique and well rounded visual chronicle of one man's service in the Pacific theatre of World War II, these images offer a glimpse of collaboration between a highly industrialized Western army and a third world society still embracing ancestral tradition as a daily way of life. Especially uncommon, the album also contains several original photographs of famous American celebrities associated with the USO (United Service Organizations) tour, who performed in Papua New Guinea in August 1944, including Jack Benny and Bob Hope standing together, movie star Carole Landis climbing out of a PBY aircraft, and Patti Thomas performing a dance in haltertop outfit. Singer Frances Langford appears in a few photographs, entertaining, interacting with the soldiers, and talking with musician June Bruner. Singer Martha Tilton and skilled harmonica player Larry Adler were also among the American concert party, who had arrive in New Guinea on 15 July 1944 to perform for servicemen. There is also a single photograph of a Hawaiian music troop performing for the servicemen. The photographer / compiler of these images is identified as L.H. Arrington on his 180th meridian crossing certificate, made onboard troopship SS Explorer in December 1945 on the return voyage to New York. A newspaper clipping placed within the album suggests that he served in a unit under the command of Major General Woodruff of I Corps, specifically with the 260th Quartermaster Rail-head company which was in Luzon, Philippines from 25 July 1945 to 19 October 1945, and which established quartermaster supply in Wakayama, Japan. Arrington may have also been part of Operation VICTOR V of the Battle of Mindanao in the Philippines in March 1945, Woodruff's 24th Infantry Division being one of the two principal ground combat units in the attack against Japanese forces. Most of the images being taken in New Guinea, Arrington would have previously participated The New Guinea campaign (January 1942 - August 1945). Although busy with daily war and camp duties, he managed to snap a good number of photographs of the islanders performing their indigenous routines, be that fishing with their dugout boats, harvesting bananas, washing, or balancing awkward items on their heads. Papuan men and their young boys were tireless assistants to the army, unloading cargo, constructing shelters and other buildings, clearing brush for landing strips, and so forth. A most impressive and large chapel appears to have been a combined effort of the Americans' skilled tradesmen and the Papuans knowledge in the use of Sago Palms. War wreckage scenes feature ships and aircraft on Pacific island beaches, including the Japanese ship Kinugawa Maru, which was beached and destroyed in November 1942 during Battle of Guadalcanal. Camp setup is also well illustrated, the American troops having erected a large temporary tent city to accommodate their numbers, each structure built on an elevated wood platform. The New Guinea campaign (January 1942 - August 1945) was one of the major military campaigns of World War II. Approximately 216,000 Japanese, Australian and U.S. soldiers, sailors and airmen died. The US Navy Construction Battalions (C.B.) or 'Seabees' combat construction unit endured oppressive heat and humidity, nagging insects, tropical diseases, and enemy bombings. Roscoe Barnett Woodruff (1891-1975) was a career U.S. Army officer who served in World War I, and also in World War II as a combat division and corps commander in European and in the Pacific. In November 1944, Woodruff's chance at large-scale combat command finally came as commander in the Southwest Pacific of the 24th Infantry Division. He led his command in the five month Battle of Mindanao to liberate that island of Philippine archipelago from Japanese occupation in the closing phases of the Leyte campaign. In November 1945, Woodruff became commander of Eighth United States Army's I Corps, part of the allied occupation force in southern Japan. On Thursday, 20 January 1944, SS Explorer joined convoy Convoy UT.7, along with USS Stanton, USAT Excelsior, USAT General George W. Goethals, SS Borinquen, NS Britannic, and SS Exchequer. [The Convoy Identification Code UT.7 designated the route (UT = United States to United Kingdom) and the chronological number (7). The return trip of this convoy would be designated TU.7 (reversed). There were more than 200 convoy routes in existence during the war, of which 94 routes were under attack by U-Boats.] . Very Good.

        Ilha de nome santo. Novo Cancioneiro, 9.

      Coimbra, Tipografia da Atlântida, 1942. - 55, (1) pp. 4°, original illustrated wrappers (some spotting; slight defect to foot of spine; a bit frayed at head of spine, small nick at bottom edge of front wrapper). Internally very good (some slight browning). ---- FIRST EDITION of the author's first book of poetry, and his first published work. With @Ilha de nome santo, Tenreiro "became the first negritude poet to write in Portuguese" (Moser & Ferreira), and he also played an important role in promoting the work of other African poets. Attracted at an early age to the writers and poets of the Harlem Renaissance, Tenreiro reveled in their positive affirmations of blackness and pan-Africanist sympathies. In @Ilha de nome santo and in the later poems collected in the posthumous @Obra poética (1967), Tenreiro explored the alienation he felt as a @mestiço in a white, colonialist society and the foundations of his identity as a black man and African. He later published a study of contemporary American and African-American writers, @Panorâmica da literatura Norte-Americana (Lisbon, 1945). With Mário de Andrade, Tenreiro wrote the influential @Poesia Negra de expressão portuguesa (1953) and compiled an accompanying anthology (1958), as well as another anthology of contemporary Angolan and Mozambican poetry (1962).Tenreiro (1921-63) was born on the island of São Tomé in the Gulf of Guinea. After schooling at the Escola Superior Colonial, he undertook graduate studies in geography in Lisbon, at the Universities of London and Cambridge, and at the London School of Economics. As a specialist in the geography of West Africa, Tenreiro held positions in the Ministério do Ultramar before obtaining a teaching position at the University of Lisbon; he later was appointed professor at the Instituto Superior de Estudos Ultramarinos. From 1958 to 1962, he served as the deputy for São Tomé in the Assembleia Nacional. In addition to his literary publications, Tenreiro published widely on the geography of Portugal's Atlantic and West African colonies and on Portuguese colonialism.---- Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (1976), pp. 1130-1: giving publication date as 1943.

        The Moon is Down

      New York: The Viking Press, 1942. First edition, second state. Hardcover. Near fine/near fine. SIGNED. 188pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] in blue cloth with silver-gilt-stamped spine and blind-embossed front board. Very light rubbing to jacket at extremities; light fading to faintly cocked spine; interior is clean and tight. First edition, second state, with line 11 on page 112 having no period between 'talk' and 'this'. Flat-signed by Steinbeck on title page. John Steinbeck won the Pulitzer Prize for The Grapes of Wrath. From the dust jacket- "The Moon is Down continues the experiment begun with Of Mice and Men, that of writing a short novel having the time and place disciplines of the stage. The scene of the book is any conquered country in any time. The author has purposely refrained from making it literally true to actual events. Although the weapons and ideologies may be of the present, they are only vehicles for the theme that a free brave people is unconquerable.

        Pilote de Guerre

      1942 - 253 pp. New-York, Editions de la Maison Française, 1942, in-4, 253 pp, broché, couverture imprimée dans un emboîtage en demi maroquin brun à coin, Édition originale, tirage limité à 526 exemplaires, un des 450 imprimés sur papier Corsican (n°61). Bel exemplaire enrichi d'un amical envoi signé de l'auteur à Madame Ping Lawrence, femme de Laudy Lawrence, représentant de la société de production MGM en Europe et ami de l'auteur : « Pour Madame L. Lawrence, avec l'espoir que, malgré son refus de tels livres, elle voudra bien faire, une fois, une exception, et lire ces quelques souvenirs d'un pilote de guerre, avec mon très amical souvenir». Cet envoi a vraisemblablement été rédigé lors d'une soirée mondaine chez Madame Anne Morgan, présidente du Comité de coordination des sociétés d'entraide françaises, où Saint-Exupéry fut convié pour présenter son livre. Après son discours, il fut happé par la foule au milieu de laquelle il reconnut un visage familier, celui de Ping Lawrence, qu'il entraîna dans une autre pièce pour pouvoir lui parler à l'abri des regards. Dans l'exemplaire, des articles du New York Times à propos de l'ouvrage, datés de 1943. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        VINTAGE TYPED & SIGNED HELEN KELLER LETTER 1942 WORLD WAR II EFFORT AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR THE BLIND FUNDRAISING PASKUS

      Helen Keller 1942 - Personally addressed, typed and signed Helen Keller letter. This well-preserved letter is typed on fine watermarked paper with clean typeface, Keller's address at the top, and her signature cleanly written at the bottom. This piece measures approximately 7.5" by 10.5". This letter, dated November 21, 1942, is addressed to one Mr. Paskus, to whom Keller advocates for her "blind fellows" in their desire to contribute to the ongoing war effort, and to that end requests financial support for the American Foundation for the Blind "to arm the courage of the blind with work. If you do, there will be an added sweetness for you in the victory of light over darkness and generous ideals over barbarism." The letter is typed and shows Keller's signature in pencil at the bottom. Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film "The Miracle Worker." Her birthplace in West Tuscumbia, Alabama, is now a museum and sponsors an annual "Helen Keller Day." Her birthday on June 27 is commemorated as Helen Keller Day in the U. S. State of Pennsylvania and was authorized at the federal level by presidential proclamation by President Jimmy Carter in 1980, the 100th anniversary of her birth. A prolific author, Keller was well-traveled and outspoken in her convictions. A member of the Socialist Party of America and the Industrial Workers of the World, she campaigned for women's suffrage, labor rights, socialism, and other similar causes. She was inducted into the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame in 1971 and was one of twelve inaugural inductees to the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame on June 8, 2015.

        Work Suspended.

      London: Chapman & Hall Ltd,, 1942. Two Chapters of an Unfinished Novel. Octavo. Original red cloth, gilt lettered spine. Some dampstaining to covers and top edge, spine rubbed, tiny area of surface worming to back cover, partial staining to inner joints, internally a few signs of handling. First edition, first impression, one of 500 copies printed. Remarkable presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Randolph Churchill: "Randolph from Evelyn Christmas 1942"; inscribed (in another hand) "S.A.S. Regt./ No. 9". Christopher Sykes summarises this period of Waugh's wartime service: "By the end of 1941 No. 8 Commando were back in England and their battalion Headquarters were at Sherborne in Dorset. There Evelyn remained with them during most of 1942, with several special assignments to Combined Operations Headquarters in London as an Intelligence Officer. In July 1943 Colonel Laycock was ordered to take No. 8 Commando to Italy. Evelyn, to his lasting embitterment, was not included by Laycock among the officers selected for this operational mission. He endeavoured to obtain a reversal of the decision in vain. However, in the course of the subsequent dispute with Lord Lovat, who was acting as Laycock's representative at Combined Operations Headquarters, a friend, Lord Lovat's cousin Colonel William Stirling, invited him to become one of his officers in a new unit which, with the support of Winston Churchill, he was in the process of raising: the 2nd Special Air Service Regiment. The nucleus of the unit had been raised and was serving in North Africa. Evelyn was officially transferred to Bill Stirling's command in October 1943 and (with myself [Sykes]) he was under instructions to join the SAS in North Africa in November, but the orders were cancelled owing to the happily changed situation of the Allied Forces" (Sykes, Evelyn Waugh: a Biography, 1975, pp. 200-01). Randolph Churchill, Winston's son, also served in the SAS and was with Waugh during the 1944 military mission to support Tito's partisans in Yugoslavia; Put Out More Flags, the follow-up to Work Suspended, was dedicated to Randolph. Also with the ownership inscription of fellow SAS officer Captain P.L.J. Le Poer Power MC (1912-1998), Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers then 2nd SAS Squadron, who served in Italy and Normandy, who has been described as "an SAS raider par excellence" (Damien Lewis, The Nazi Hunters: The Ultra-Secret SAS Unit and the Quest for Hitler's War Criminals).A wonderfully evocative copy from Waugh's wartime years.

        Springtime in the Rockies (Original screenplay for the 1942 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1942. Revised Final Script for the 1942 film musical, "Springtime in the Rockies," directed by Irving Cummings, based on the screenplay for the 1936 comedy "Second Honeymoon," written for the screen by Walter Bullock, Ken Englund, Jacques Thery, and Philip Wylie and starring Betty Grable, Carmen Miranda, John Payne, Cesar Romero, Edward Everett Horton, and Harry James. Betty Grable's starring debut remains one the greatest Technicolor musicals produced by Fox in the 1940s, making grand use of the "let's move the action from the city to the country" approach, employing Harry James and his orchestra at their peak, and pulling out all the stops on the musical numbers--with Carmen Miranda's version of "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" and the debut of the classic song, "I Had the Craziest Dream" topping things off. Red studio wrappers, stamped REVISED FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 763 and copy No. 47, dated June 11, 1942, and with the holograph file notation "Env. #1443" at the top right corner. Distribution page present, with receipt intact. Title page present, with a date matching the front wrapper. 129 leaves, with 1 retake page paper-clipped to the rear wrapper, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 6/13/42 and 7/20/42. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads.

        The Undying Monster (Original screenplay for the 1942 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1942. Revised Final Script for the 1942 horror film, based on the 1936 novel by Jessie Douglas Kerruish. A well-crafted (and in some ways, superior) variation on Universal's "Wolfman" films of the 1930s and 1940s, released as a double-feature with the equally intriguing "Dr. Renault's Secret" in 1942, in the heat of the studio's incredible run of horror classics. Red studio wrappers, stamped REVISED FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 801 and copy No. 139, and dated July 30, 1942. Distribution page present, with receipt intact. Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Hayward and Jacoby. 108 leaves, mimeograph, with a few blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 8/3/42 and 8/5/42 Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus with one fingernail-size bruise on the front panel, yapped edges, and a couple of short closed tears, internally bound with two gold brads.

'Lawrence Lokken, the University of Miami School of Law professor of economics, credits Fisher's 1942 book with the concept behind the Unlimited Savings Accumulation Tax, a reform introduced in the United States Senate in 1995 by Senator Pete Domenici (R-New Mexico), former Senator Sam Nunn (D-Georgia), and Senator Bob Kerrey (D-Nebraska). The concept was that unnecessary spending (which is hard to define in a law) can be taxed by taxing income minus all net investments and savings, and minus an allowance for essential purchases, thus making funds available for investment' (Wikipedia).

        3 (davon 2 eigenh. und 1 ms.) Briefe mit eh. U. („Geno" bzw. „Geno Hartlaub").

      Heidelberg, Metz und o. O., 1941 und 1942. - Zusammen (3+½+1=) 4½ SS. auf 4 Bll. (Gr.-)4to. An den Publizisten Rudolf Goldschmit-Jentner (1890–1964) mit der Bitte, „auf der Elmau [.] für mich einen Platz zu bekommen [.] ich möchte nun so bald als möglich hier fort. Seit die nächtlichen Besuche wieder eingesetzt haben, feiert meine Schlaflosigkeit wieder Triumphe und von Arbeiten ist gar keine Rede mehr [.]" (Br. v. 28. August 1941 aus Heidelberg), und sehr ausführlich über ihre augenblickliche Tätigkeit: „[.] Einen Roman-Plan habe ich allerdings schon jahrelang und seine gedankliche Fixierung und Ausarbeitung ist nun auch seit einiger Zeit schon so weit, daß es höchste Zeit wäre, etwas davon zu Papier zu bringen [.] Thema ist eine Künstler-Kindheit im Armeleutehaus, die Entwicklung eines Menschen von der engsten und schmerzhaftesten Bindung an das Schicksal, die Tragödie seiner Familie[,] zur inneren Freiheit und endgültigen Überwindung der Kleinbürger-Dämonenwelt. Das tragische Moment, an dem sich die Familie, und darüber hinaus auch das Glück und Alltagsleben der kleinen Stadt zerstört, ist denkbar einfach [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 21. Juni 1941 aus Metz). – „[.] Mein Schicksal ist noch immer nicht ganz entschieden. Es läuft noch die Osloer Sache, die ich im Angesicht des nahenden Frauenarbeitsgesetz[es] (dem ich auch als Verlagsangest. nicht entrinnen könnte) nicht abbrechen wollte [.]" (Br. v. 21. März 1942; wohl auch aus Metz). – Die Tochter des Kunsthistorikers und Museumsdirektors Gustav Friedrich Hartlaub war als Lektorin bei der von Dolf Sternberger gegründeten Zeitschrift „Die Wandlung" und anschließend bei verschiedenen Verlagen tätig. In den 50er Jahren gab sie den literarischen Nachlaß ihres verschollenen Bruders Felix Hartlaub heraus; von 1962 bis 1975 war sie Redakteurin beim „Deutschen Allgemeinen Sonntagsblatt" in Hamburg. Ihr Werk umfaßt Romane und Erzählungen, Reisebücher und Hörspiele. Hartlaub war Mitglied der Gruppe 47, des P.E.N.-Zentrums der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, der Freien Akademie der Künste in Hamburg und der Deutschen Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung in Darmstadt. – Mit kleinen Randläsuren und einrissen und etwas knittrig; die Unterschrift im Br. v. 28. August 1941 in Bleistift. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Bezeichnung u. dem Datum der Aufnahme 1857.- Die Texte zu den Bildern wurden von Sophia und Reginald Poole verfaßt.- Francis Frith (1822-1898) war der größte Verleger der Ansichtsfotografie seiner Zeit. Vor allem die Aufnahmen seiner drei Orientreisen (1856-59) begründeten seinen Ruhm.- Text leicht gebräunt u. nur gering fleckig, Trägerkarton meist etw. stockfleckig, überwiegend schöne tonige Abzüge, Ebde. etw. berieben.# First edition.- 2 folio volumes, complete with 76 mounted albumen photographs, preceded by a tissue guard, and followed by a leaf explaining the image. Cloth with leather spine and corners.- Frith was among the best known European photographers of the 1850s. His three trips to Egypt, Palestine and surrounding areas during 1856-58 were conducted on the model of the European Grand Tour. Starting out as an amateur photographer, Frith's work eventually became so popular that he built one of the largest photography businesses in England. The images in the present volumes are the first that Frith made in that part of the world, and are pivotal to his eventual success as a businessman. The technical challenges of taking and developing photographs in the dark and in very hot temperatures were formidable, and the fact that Frith was able to do this well is a testament to his skills.- Mild foxing throughout, occasionally severe in the margins. 6 of 76 plates have minor blemishes to the images, internally clean noting the foxing above.- Very good.
