        Columbia Review -- Autumn 1941-Winter 1942

      [New York: Columbia University], 1942. Near Fine. Four issues. Autumn 1941 -- Winter 1942. Stapled wrappers. Some wear to the yapped edges with a remnant spot on the Autumn 1941 issue, overall near fine. These issues each feature several very early appearances by Louis Simpson, the 1964 Pulitzer Prize winner for poetry, including possibly his first published poem. Simpson became involved with the magazine during his freshman year at Columbia, contributing prose stories, essays, and poetry. Eventually he became editor-in-chief under the guidance of faculty advisor, Mark Van Doren, himself a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1940. A nice collection of early writings from a prize-winning poet in training.

        [Photo Album]: Lawrence E Ashbrook, The Kentucky Whittler

      [Lexington, Kentucky, 1942. Near Fine. Oblong 64mo. Measuring 3.25" x 2". String-tied green stiff card wraps. 48 small black and white gelatin silver photographs, each measuring approximately 2.75" x 1.75". Mild handling wear and curling, images with small holes at left margins for string binding, overall very near fine.A diminutive photograph album compiled and annotated by folk-artist Lawrence E. Ashbrook (circa 1890-1953), also known as The Kentucky Whittler. Ashbrook worked and operated a roadside museum on his property approximately 14 miles south of Lexington, Kentucky on U.S. Highway 25 and traveled frequently around Kentucky and the Southern United States, selling his wooden sculptures and teaching the art of whittling to children. A likely-1930's advertisting postcard held in the University of Kentucky's John Jacob Niles Photographic Collection shows Ashbrook in front of a traveling display with the text: "The Kentucky Whittler / Will Visit Your School by Appoint- / ment. And Give a Demonstration in / Clay Modelling. L.E. Ashbrook - Lexington, Ky."We suspect this small but detailed album was likely used to promote these or similar demonstrations, or perhaps his museum. The album consists of images of The Whittler's work: figures, architectural models, busts, sculptures, vehicles, etc., with 32 of the photographs identified or otherwise annotated on the versos. Many of Ashbrook's figures and dioramas were known to incorporate mechanical elements as well, including an intricately carved skeleton shown here, titled: "Animated Skeleton / or Reckless Driver."Additionally, a series of 12 well-annotated prints detail his process on a figure of F.D.R. from start to finish, capturing images of Ashbrook selecting wood, rough-cutting it with a hatchet, fine carving, and the like. His work is described in one notation as "[...] at random no place in particular but all over in general." Further noted within this series is mention of its filming for a program called "Unusual Occupations," a long-running series of roughly 10-minute films released by Paramount Pictures between 1938-1949; The Whittler was featured in a 1943 episode. Suriving examples of Ashbrook's work are scarce and aside from the aforementioned image at Kentucky, visual or written records are not apparently held institutionally. A rich photographic archive of a noted folk artist in the American South, assembled and annotated by the artist himself.

        Frontovoi iumor: pervyi sbornik krasnoarmeiskogo satiricheskogo tvorchestva [Front-line humor: first collection of Red Army satirical writing]

      [Leningrad Region?]: politicheskoe upravlenie severo-zapadnogo fronta, 1942. Octavo (16.5 × 13.2 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers; 45, [3] pp. Lightly worn and creased; spine some- what rubbed; still about very good. [An Anti-Nazi Alphabet for Front Soldiers]. A very scarce survival, this fully illustrated volume of anti-German anecdotes, ditties, rhymes, chastushki, and caricatures was compiled and produced by Red Army soldiers serving on the North-Western Front during World War II (presumably somewhere in the Leningrad Region or close to Finland). Of particular interest is a section titled "The Red-Army ABC": here each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with an anti-Nazi vignette, accompanied by a rhymed couplet that combines whimsy with a vicious hate of the fascist enemy. The entry for the final letter, "ia" (which means "I" in Russian), reads: Ia - vsei azbuke venets, ia - dlia Gitlera konets! ("I am the crown of the entire alphabet, I am Hitler's demise!" None of the authors and caricaturists (primarily one F. Sigal) appear to be known. The postal address for contributions is a military field post office of the North-Western Front. Rare: Not in KVK, OCLC; not held by the Russian State or National Library.

Der Feldzug Barbarossa begann am 22. Juni 1941. Schon im Dezember 1941 nach dem Scheitern der Wehrmacht vor Moskau stand fest, dass die Strategie als Blitzkrieg gescheitert war.

Dennoch wurde der Krieg als rassistischer Vernichtungskrieg fortgesetzt. In diesem Buch wird unter anderem die saubere Handwerkskunst (!) der Russen als auch ihre Fähigkeit zur Tarnung hervorgehoben. Diese Befestigungs- und Tarnanlagen werden mit zahlreichen Abb. nach Photographien dokumentiert.

        Geopolitics: The Struggle for Space and Power

      New York: George Putnam's Sons, 1942. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. xiii, 274pp. Black cloth with yellow lettering. Near Fine with slightly bumped corners, small pinhole near upper tip of front board, in about Very Good original unclipped ($2.75) dust jacket with faint stain to front panel, spine toned, worn and chipped at extremities. Scarce. A prescient work of geostrategy. It brought the work of German political geographer General Karl Haushofer to the United States in the midst of World War II, years before the cold war necessitated America's re-examination of geostrategy in earnest. Today much less well-known than geostrategists such as George Kennan and Henry Kissinger, Strausz-Hupe nevertheless managed to make quite a mark on American politics and diplomacy. The Foreign Policy Research Institute think-tank he established continues to this day, publishing the international affairs journal Orbis.

        [Photo Album]: Lawrence E. Ashbrook, The Kentucky Whittler

      (Lexington, Kentucky, 1942. Near Fine. Oblong 64mo. String-tied green stiff card wraps. 48 small black and white gelatin silver photographs (each measuring approximately 1.75" x 2.75"). Mild handling wear and curling, images with small holes at left margins for string binding, overall very near fine.A diminutive photograph album compiled and annotated by folk-artist Lawrence E. Ashbrook (circa 1890-1953), also known as The Kentucky Whittler. Ashbrook worked and operated a roadside museum on his property approximately 14 miles south of Lexington, Kentucky on U.S. Highway 25 and traveled frequently around Kentucky and the Southern United States, selling his wooden sculptures and teaching the art of whittling to children. A likely-1930's advertisting postcard held in the University of Kentucky's John Jacob Niles Photographic Collection shows Ashbrook in front of a traveling display with the text: "The Kentucky Whittler / Will Visit Your School by Appoint- / ment. And Give a Demonstration in / Clay Modelling. L.E. Ashbrook - Lexington, Ky."We suspect this small but detailed album was likely used to promote these or similar demonstrations, or perhaps his museum. The album consists of images of The Whittler's work: figures, architectural models, busts, sculptures, vehicles, etc., with 32 of the photographs identified or otherwise annotated on the versos. Many of Ashbrook's figures and dioramas were known to incorporate mechanical elements as well, including an intricately carved skeleton shown here, titled: "Animated Skeleton / or Reckless Driver."Additionally, a series of 12 well-annotated prints detail his process on a figure of F.D.R. from start to finish, capturing images of Ashbrook selecting wood, rough-cutting it with a hatchet, fine carving, and the like. His work is described in one notation as "[...] at random no place in particular but all over in general." Further noted within this series is mention of its filming for a program called "Unusual Occupations," a long-running series of roughly 10-minute films released by Paramount Pictures between 1938-1949; The Whittler was featured in a 1943 episode. Suriving examples of Ashbrook's work are scarce and aside from the aforementioned image at Kentucky, visual or written records are not apparently held institutionally. A rich photographic archive of a noted folk artist in the American South, assembled and annotated by the artist himself.
