        Romans nouveaux Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      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 In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric,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.

        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.

        A translator's archive of poetry from the Russian. [Including first editions of Marshall's translations, corrected typescripts including that of an unpublished anthology, etc.]

      - 1966 1942 - FIRST EDITIONS and FIRST REVISED EDITIONS of books, various sizes and formats for manuscript and typescript material, some with handling marks, original cloth or boards to books all with dustjackets where called for, some with Marshall's own corrections to the text as well as various inserts relating to the poets or Marshall's various activities, condition variable but ranging from good to sound (the latter in relation to the Indian revised edition, where it is the author's corrected proof copy), manuscript and typescript material all within folders, some with original folds and marks from paperclips etc, good condition overall. Marshall, a professor of film and theatre, studied dramatic production and cinematography in Russia with Sergei Eisenstein on whom he would later write - he and his wife, the Polish sculptor and actress Fredda Brilliant, lived there for the latter half of the 1930s and this is where his contact with, knowledge of, and affection for Russian language and literature was formed. His are the first English translations of the majority of the poems here and as the letter to Marshall from Roman Jakobson included in the Mayakovsky folders suggests, the existence of the translations marks a valuable contribution to our understanding of Russian literature - even if the translations themselves were found wanting in the eyes of some. This large archive documents every stage of the process of translation, including publication, and includes an abundance of material not included in the published volumes. A summary of the contents follows: - Two folders relating predominantly to the Dennis Dobson expanded edition of his translations from Mayakovsky in 1965: one with typescripts of the text with holograph emendations and notes, as well as a typescript of C.M. (Sir Maurice) Bowra's Foreword along with a TLs presenting it; second folder containing notes for articles, talks and various ephemera regarding them, a TLs from Roman Jakobson from 1960 asserting that 'the decision of translating Majakovskij is welcome' but regretting that he 'found poor' the translations themselves, academic correspondence, correspondence with booksellers and publishers, reviews of his work, notes for updates and revisions, annotated and corrected typescripts of his translations. A copy of the Dobson edition, as well as 2 copies of the earlier 'Mayakovsky and his Poetry' (Pilot Press, 1942), and a copy of the Indian edition of the same (Current Book House, 1955). - Two folders relating to his translations of Yevtushenko: one a typescript of the text with additional poems not featured in published book as well as a draft preface and notes showing Marshall's original conception of a much larger volume - his dismay regarding this is one the subjects in his correspondence with his publisher (Dutton) that is found in the second folder, which also includes typescripts of notes, text and surrounding material for the edition with holograph emendations as well as photocopies. A copy of Pergamon's edition of Marshall's translations, as well as the Collins and Harvill edition of 'A Precocious Autobiography' (not translated by Marshall) - Five folders relating predominantly to his edition of Vosnesensky's work, three consisting of typescript and manuscript copies of the poems (and surrounding material), one with 4pp. typescript of notes in Russian marked - on a photocopy of the same with Marshall's notes - as being from the poet himself, another with a typescript version of the text (with one or two holograph emendations the other including correspondence with publisher, holograph notes, typescripts with holograph notes and emendations, various ephemera relating to Marshall's activities. A copy of Methuen's edition of Marshall's translations. - Spiral bound photocopied typescript for unpublished anthology '50 Years of Soviet Poetry', with translations by Marshall.

Loose prints slightly curled at ends, showing light handling wear. Overall very good. A stylish selection of ca. 1942 window display views from Franklin Simon's flagship location on Fifth Avenue at 38th Street. These show 12 intricately constructed sets populated by mannequins in period clothing surrounded by classic graphics, signage, and furnishings of the era. Each is stamped by Worsinger Photo with a catalog number, store, and photographer name written in the negative. Franklin Simon's store windows were Fifth Avenue landmarks, rising to legendary status when, in the late 1920's, their primary designers were Norman Bel Geddes and Donald Deskey. These later images demonstrate their continuing influence and provide a valuable look at WWII-era retail design and decoration in New York City.

        SHERLOCK HOLMES and the SECRET WEAPON (Unique Manuscript Archive for the 1942 Universal film adaptation of Doyle's 1903 story "The Adventure Of The Dancing Men")

      Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1942. Doyle, A. Conan (Scott Darling & Edward T. Lowe & Edmund L. Hartmann, screenwriters). SHERLOCK HOLMES and the SECRET WEAPON. Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1942. This unique film studio archive consists of FIVE scripts: three hand-corrected original manuscripts, a mimeographed copy of the shooting script, and the final dialogue and continuity script. In short, a treasure trove of primary material relating to one of the most endearing and enduring film series of the 1940s. The twelve Sherlock Holmes films produced by Universal Pictures during the years 1942-1946 are legend; they are surely the best known screen-adapted adventures of English Literature's most iconic character and Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are still cherished, despite our current superb 21st century film and TV adaptations, as the definitive Holmes and Watson. 1. Dated March 24th, 1942, Edward T. Lowe & Scott Darling's brad-bound "first rough draft" script includes 7pp of ribbon copy outline and notes for the story, along with a 95pp ribbon copy manuscript with the early and discarded title: "Sherlock Holmes #2". The typescript is complete, here found in typically bland WW2 Universal Studio covers stamped with the production number (7038). Although the cover is chipped and worn, the contents are pristine. There are a few penciled notes scattered throughout. 2. Dated April 22nd, 1942, Scott Darling's complete 110pp ribbon copy manuscript of Sherlock Holmes #2 with "Third Draft" on the cover. Also sports matching drab brown covers which are chipped but contents are Fine. 3. Dated May 22nd, 1942, Edmund L. Hartmann (the third credited writer) is the name on the cover of this remarkable complete 100pp manuscript draft which consists of a mix of original yellow carbon typescript and studio-mimeographed pink revision pages, most of which are covered in detailed penciled marginal corrections, additions, and emendations. Further the first leaf sports an original ribbon copy location manager report complete with a reproduced photo of one of the key settings. 4. Dated May 28th, 1942, this 107pp shooting script credits all three screenwriters, as well as Conan Doyle and "The Adventure of the Dancing Men." The new (but also later discarded) title is "Sherlock Holmes Fight Back" and the script consists of both studio-issued white pages and revised June, 2nd, 1942 blue pages; The drab studio covers are a bit tattered and used, as befits a shooting script but the contents are Very Good indeed. In addition, inserted is a 3pp revised step outline. 5. Dated August 6th, 1942, the complete studio-mimeographed self-wrapper final dialogue continuity script, bound with two brads at the top, bearing the film's final, accurate title "Sherlock Holmes and The Secret Weapon." In Very Good condition. Although 20th Century Fox produced two films from the Sherlock Holmes canon in the 1930s (also starring Rathbone and Bruce), they were set in Victorian England. Once Universal purchased the rights to all of Conan Doyle's characters from his estate, they took a hard look at World War Two audiences and realized that, for a world at war, cobblestoned streets and hansom cabs might seem irrelevant. So the inventive and pragmatic minds at Universal, faced with competing movies full of modern gunplay, car chases, film noir, and horror, made the controversial but essential decision to update Sherlock to modern times and have him take on the Nazis. Thus, although this film was inspired by one of A. Conan Doyle's personal favorites -- "The Adventure of the Dancing Men," the only retained element of the original tale was the dancing men "code" which is the key to solving the mystery. The producer of SHERLOCK HOLMES and the SECRET WEAPON was Howard Benedict (from RKO's Saint and Falcon series). The screenwriters were Scott Darling ("The Ghost of Frankenstein") and Edward T. Lowe ("The Hunchback of Notre Dame"). Additional script rewrite was provided by Edmund L. Hartman ("The Scarlet Claw"). The director, Roy William Neill, became, from this film on, the guiding creative force for the entire Universal Sherlock Holmes series, directing and producing each film. His long directing career included "The Black Room" and "Black Angel" amongst many other credits. SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SECRET WEAPON opened on January 4th, 1943 to mixed critical reviews but overwhelming praise from a delighted public. A comprehensive one-of-a-kind archive. Please check out the other Sherlock Holmes original screenplays we have in stock.. Signed. Original Wraps. Very Good.

        THE HOUSE OF FEAR (Original 1944 First Draft Script for the Universal Studios film adaptation of A. Conan Doyle's 1892 Sherlock Holmes story "The Five Orange Pips")

      Universal Studios 1942 - Doyle, A. Conan (Roy Chanslor, screenwriter). THE HOUSE OF DEATH [here bearing the initial, later discarded, title "The Murder Club."] Based on the short story "The Five Orange Pips" published in THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOMES in 1892. Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1942. Dated April 4th, 1944, Roy Chanslor's complete first draft 111pp original typed carbon copy manuscript is accomplished on onion-skin paper, brad-bound and housed in original drab brown studio covers (production number 7234), with each leaf rubber-stamped "Contract File Copy" in red block letters save for a 4pp neatly inserted set of revisions (pages 80-83) which boast a few penciled notations. Given the fragile nature of WW2-era scripts, this example is in excellent original condition, very good indeed. If not a unique survival, this "Contract File Copy" would certainly never have existed in more than a few copies circulated in-house. [WITH:] a studio-mimeographed copy of the final continuity and dialogue script for THE HOUSE OF FEAR, complete and dated July 26th, 1944. THE HOUSE OF FEAR was released in New York on March 16th, 1945 to positive reviews. Producer and director Roy William Neill (who directed 11 of the 12 Universal Holmes movies) is often praised for the moody feel of this particular movie which many consider more Victorian in feeling and tone than the first few films in the series. Screenwriter Roy Chanslor ("Johnny Guitar") is occasionally given some credit for the general critical opinion that this is one of the better Universal Sherlock scripts. The twelve Sherlock Holmes films produced by Universal Pictures during the years 1942-1946 are legend; they are surely the best known screen-adapted adventures of English Literature's most iconic character and Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are still cherished, despite our current superb 21st century film and TV adaptations, as the definitive Holmes and Watson. A very rare script. Please check out the other Sherlock Holmes original screenplays we have in stock. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        SHERLOCK HOLMES and the SECRET WEAPON (Unique Manuscript Archive for the 1942 Universal film adaptation of Doyle's 1903 story "The Adventure Of The Dancing Men")

      Universal Studios 1942 - Doyle, A. Conan (Scott Darling & Edward T. Lowe & Edmund L. Hartmann, screenwriters). SHERLOCK HOLMES and the SECRET WEAPON. Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1942. This unique film studio archive consists of FIVE scripts: three hand-corrected original manuscripts, a mimeographed copy of the shooting script, and the final dialogue and continuity script. In short, a treasure trove of primary material relating to one of the most endearing and enduring film series of the 1940s. The twelve Sherlock Holmes films produced by Universal Pictures during the years 1942-1946 are legend; they are surely the best known screen-adapted adventures of English Literature's most iconic character and Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are still cherished, despite our current superb 21st century film and TV adaptations, as the definitive Holmes and Watson. 1. Dated March 24th, 1942, Edward T. Lowe & Scott Darling's brad-bound "first rough draft" script includes 7pp of ribbon copy outline and notes for the story, along with a 95pp ribbon copy manuscript with the early and discarded title: "Sherlock Holmes #2". The typescript is complete, here found in typically bland WW2 Universal Studio covers stamped with the production number (7038). Although the cover is chipped and worn, the contents are pristine. There are a few penciled notes scattered throughout. 2. Dated April 22nd, 1942, Scott Darling's complete 110pp ribbon copy manuscript of Sherlock Holmes #2 with "Third Draft" on the cover. Also sports matching drab brown covers which are chipped but contents are Fine. 3. Dated May 22nd, 1942, Edmund L. Hartmann (the third credited writer) is the name on the cover of this remarkable complete 100pp manuscript draft which consists of a mix of original yellow carbon typescript and studio-mimeographed pink revision pages, most of which are covered in detailed penciled marginal corrections, additions, and emendations. Further the first leaf sports an original ribbon copy location manager report complete with a reproduced photo of one of the key settings. 4. Dated May 28th, 1942, this 107pp shooting script credits all three screenwriters, as well as Conan Doyle and "The Adventure of the Dancing Men." The new (but also later discarded) title is "Sherlock Holmes Fight Back" and the script consists of both studio-issued white pages and revised June, 2nd, 1942 blue pages; The drab studio covers are a bit tattered and used, as befits a shooting script but the contents are Very Good indeed. In addition, inserted is a 3pp revised step outline. 5. Dated August 6th, 1942, the complete studio-mimeographed self-wrapper final dialogue continuity script, bound with two brads at the top, bearing the film's final, accurate title "Sherlock Holmes and The Secret Weapon." In Very Good condition. Although 20th Century Fox produced two films from the Sherlock Holmes canon in the 1930s (also starring Rathbone and Bruce), they were set in Victorian England. Once Universal purchased the rights to all of Conan Doyle's characters from his estate, they took a hard look at World War Two audiences and realized that, for a world at war, cobblestoned streets and hansom cabs might seem irrelevant. So the inventive and pragmatic minds at Universal, faced with competing movies full of modern gunplay, car chases, film noir, and horror, made the controversial but essential decision to update Sherlock to modern times and have him take on the Nazis. Thus, although this film was inspired by one of A. Conan Doyle's personal favorites -- "The Adventure of the Dancing Men," the only retained element of the original tale was the dancing men "code" which is the key to solving the mystery. The producer of SHERLOCK HOLMES and the SECRET WEAPON was Howard Benedict (from RKO's Saint and Falcon series). The screenwriters were Scott Darling ("The Ghost of Frankenstein") and Edward T. Lowe ("The Hunchback of Notre Dame"). Additional script rewrite was provided by Edmund L. Hartman ("The Scarlet Claw"). The direc [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Poster: "Become A Nurse. Your Country Needs You."

      Washington DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1942. OWI Poster No.22 - an iconic image of innocence, purity, and patriotism in the form of a recruiting poster for homefront nurses during World War II. By the time it was issued by the Office of War Information, "Pearl Harbor had fallen six months earlier and President Franklin Roosevelt foresaw a long war with heavy casualties. He made the training and recruitment of new nurses a priority and launched a major poster offensive. 'Become a nurse, your country needs you,' was one of the most successful." The woman photographed in the poster is Weslee Price Wootten D'Audney, who at the time was a pre-med student at Barnard College, Columbia University, and whose modeling career began completely by accident when a talent scout spotted her playing in the courtyard. Her image on the recruiting poster, having a pair of uniformed hands placing a nurses cap on her head, is still relevant and widely-used today. See: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sunday-star-times/features/feature-archive/399030/The-face-behind-a-famous-poster. Original photo-illustrated poster, lithographed in colors and measuring 56.5cm x 71cm (22 1/8" x 28"). Professionally linen-backed, with old fold lines faintly visible; minute, expert retouching to upper fold, center; Fine.

        SHERLOCK HOLMES and the VOICE OF TERROR (Unique Script Archive for the 1942 Universal adaptation of "His Last Bow")

      Burbank, Ca: Universal Studios, 1942. Doyle, A. Conan (John Bright and Lynn Riggs, screenwriters). SHERLOCK HOLMES and the VOICE OF TERROR. Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1942. This unique film studio archive consists of two hand-corrected original manuscripts, a mimeographed copy of the shooting script, and the final dialogue and continuity script. In short, a treasure trove of primary material relating to one of the most endearing and enduring film series of the 1940s. The twelve Sherlock Holmes films produced by Universal Pictures during the years 1942-1946 are legend; they are surely the best known screen-adapted adventures of English Literature's most iconic character and Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are still cherished, despite our current superb 21st century film and TV adaptations, as the definitive Holmes and Watson. 1. Dated March 10th, 1942, John Bright's brad-bound first draft includes a 4pp ribbon copy outline of the story along with a 120pp annotated carbon copy manuscript with the early and discarded title: "Sherlock Holmes vs. Lord Haw-Haw." The typescript is complete in typically bland WW2 Universal Studio covers stamped with the production number (7025), the pages are pale yellow, and there are a few notations in pencil and pen. The cover is a worn but the contents are Very Good indeed. 2. Dated April 2nd, 1942, Lynn Riggs' complete 121pp ribbon copy manuscript entitled "Sherlock Holmes #1" with numerous penciled annotations. It also sports drab brown covers with handwritten notes in red and regular pencil. Cover worn, contents in excellent condition. 3. Dated May 4th, 1942, this 113pp studio-mimeographed shooting script credits both John Bright and Lynn Riggs, as well as Conan Doyle and "His Last Bow." The new (but also later discarded) title is "Sherlock Holmes Saves London" and consists of both studio-issued white pages and revised blue pages. The studio covers are slightly tattered and worn, as befits a shooting script. Contents still fresh and Very Good indeed. 4. Dated July 28th, 1942, the complete studio-mimeographed self-wrapper final dialogue continuity script, bound with two brads at the top, bearing the film's final, accurate title "Sherlock Holmes and The Voice of Terror." In Very Good condition. Although 20th Century Fox produced two films from the Sherlock Holmes canon in the 1930s (also starring Rathbone and Bruce), they were set in Victorian England. Once Universal purchased the rights to all of Conan Doyle's characters from his estate (for $300,000), they took a hard look at World War Two audiences and observed that, for a world at war, cobblestoned streets and hansom cabs might seem irrelevant. So the inventive and pragmatic minds at Universal, competing with other movies full of modern gunplay, car chases, film noir, and horror, made the controversial but essential decision to update Sherlock to modern times and have him take on the Nazis. Thus, although this film was inspired by Conan Doyle's "The Last Bow" which had an espionage plot set in WW1, very little of that plot found its way into the film. The producer of SHERLOCK HOLMES and the VOICE OF TERROR was Howard Benedict (from RKO's Saint and Falcon series). The screenwriters were John Bright ("Public Enemy") and Lynn Riggs ("The Garden Of Allah"). The director, John Rawlins, known for quick and cheap serials, was the weakest link in this creative group. He was soon replaced by the genius behind the Universal Sherlock films Roy William Neill who directed the other eleven Universal Sherlock Holmes movies. SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE VOICE OF TERROR opened on September 18th, 1942 to mixed critical reviews but a wildly enthusiastic embrace by a thrilled public. One might call this The Case of the Once-In-A-Lifetime Opportunity. Please check out the other Sherlock Holmes original screenplays we have in stock. . Signed. Original Manuscript. Unbound. Very Good.
