        SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS (1942)

      Paramount 1942 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Joel McCrea, Veronica Lake, Robert Warwick, William Demarest, Franklin Pangborn, Porter Hall, dir: Preston Sturges; Paramount. One of Hollywood's top classic films and considered to be one of the best films ever about America. Though certainly a film which was a huge gamble during the days of the slick Hollywood studio system, the system sometimes afforded and encouraged experimentation and creativity and, for a few years, Preston Sturges was allowed this -- even so far as to criticize the very industry which allowed him his freedom, as he did in this film. A director of escapist films, living the posh life, decides he wants to make a film about the realities of the downtrodden and poor. He becomes a homeless tramp to learn about this lifestyle, and the film becomes Sturges' study of the hypocrisy of America, which still rings true. In this image we see Joel McCrea as film director John Lloyd Sullivan and Veronica Lake, simply characterized as "the Girl," during a scene at the film maker's posh Beverly Hills home. There are tiny pinholes at each of the four corners and at the top and bottom center and slight smudges in the blank white background. ABOUT FINE.

      [N.P., N.D.]. 1942 - This Paramount film was Chandler's only solo screen-writing credit for which he received an Oscar nomination and in James Agee's judgement that it was, "barring occasional victories and noble accidents, about as good a movie as can be expected from the big factories." The 3" x 2-1/4" glass slide shows black & white close-ups of all three stars, plus action vignettes. It is hand-tinted in blue, yellow, and pink, with no writing in the space provided to crayon in the dates of its local showing. By 1946, few theater operators were still using slide projectors, as they had since the silent movie era, to announce coming attractions, and this was one of the last slides Paramount would manufacture for that purpose. It was produced in only a very small fraction of the numbers of posters and lobby cards that were printed, and because of its fragile nature, few examples have survived. This slide has a peripheral crack on one side but it does not affect the image, else in very good condition and apparently unused, in a 4"x 3-1/2" cardboard mount, stamped on one border with the title, and with die-cut cardboard inserts to protect the fragile glass from breakage. This is the only the second example we've seen for this title and none has been offered at auction, to our knowledge, for the past several years, during which time a number of one-sheet posters of The Blue Dahlia have sold in the $3000 to $5000 price range.

        Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy

      New York: Harper & Brothers,, [1942]. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Embossed ownership stamp of Rev. Emora T. Brannan and ownership inscription dated 1943 to front free endpaper. Gilt to spine a little faded. A very good copy. First edition, scarce. Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy was Schumpeter's most important and controversial book, a philosophical analysis of economics and history in which he coined the term "creative destruction". Blaug, who calls this his masterpiece, notes that in this work, Schumpeter "paradoxically rejected the Marxian diagnosis of the imminent breakdown of capitalism and, at the same time, predicted the almost inevitable arrival of socialism as a result of the betrayal of capitalist values by the intellectuals of the western world" (Great Economists Before Keynes, p. 216.)

        Ballistik *With German Swastika Ink Stamp Atop Front Board*

      Berlin, Germany: Walter De Gruyter & Co.. Hardcover. 267 pages. Index. Text in German. An advanced treatise on ballistics from the second world war era. This copy highly noteworthy for its apparent provenance from the wartime library of a technical institute in Stuttgart as evinced by identical black inkstamps in the upper right corner of the front board, front free endpaper and title pages respectively. This circular stamp depicts an eagle, wings spread, atop a swastika. Around the stamp is lettering which appears to be the name of a technical institute in Stuttgart. A four-digit handwritten book number appears atop each stamp and at foot of backstrip. The swastika portion of the stamp on front endpaper and title page has been neatly covered over in black marker. No other markings. Light external wear to beige boards. Crease to lower corner of front free endpaper and first several pages. Binding sound. It is left to our imaginations to wonder how many German trainers and students learned from this book, and the impact they had on hostilities with the Allies. Author was a prominent mathematician and member of the Nazi party. A quality copy of this important historical item. . Good. 1942. Zweite Auflage (Second Edition).

      [New York]: Howell, Soskin, Publishers, [1942]. - First U. S. edition. Author's first book. Near fine, tight copy in dust jacket, professionally restored at spine ends and corners with two small closed tears at bottom edge of rear panel. Tough and important hardboiled mystery about the kidnapping of an heiress by a mob of ruthless gangsters. Dave Fenner, an ex-reporter turned private eye, is the hero of this tale. It was made into a film in 1948 with an all-British cast except for American actor Jack La Rue, who starred as Slim Grissom, the leader of the Grissom Gang. In 1971, Robert Aldrich filmed the story using the title THE GRISSOM GANG, that starred Kim Darby as Barbara Blandish, Robert Lansing as Dave Fenner, with Scott Wilson, Tony Musante, Connie Stevens, Ralph Waite, and others in supporting roles. The book provides a tough, hardboiled story and THE GRISSOM GANG is carefully constructed, exciting, full of suspense, with much attention to the story detail. An exceptional copy.

        The Managerial Revolution or What is Happening in the World Now

      Putnam, London,, 1942. Octavo. Original oatmeal cloth, spine and front cover lettered in red. With the grey paper dust jacket printed in red. A few light pencil marginal notes. A small spray of ?rust-spots to rear cover and a single blemish on front cover, else a fine copy in the very good jacket just a little tanned at the spine. First English edition, first impression. Burnham's book caused some consternation when first published in England as, originally writing in 1940, Burnham took a German victory more or less for granted. George Orwell reviewed the book critically at length in an essay originally printed in Polemic under the title "Second Thoughts on James Burnham", later reprinted as a pamphlet as James Burnham and the Managerial Revolution 1946. But Burnham's general forecast, that capitalism would be replaced not by socialism but by the rule of managerial administrators, still seems prescient.

This special copy is signed by the author on the front end paper in blue felt tip pen and with the 'Steinbeck Family' bookplate to the front pastedown. In this masterful tale set in Norway during World War II, Steinbeck explores the effects of invasion on both the conquered and the conquerors. As he delves into the emotions of the German commander and the Norwegian traitor, and depicts the spirited patriotism of the Norwegian underground, Steinbeck uncovers profound, often unsettling truths about war—and about human nature.

        Helen Keller Writes A Sympathy Letter: ?I Am Exceedingly With You In A Loneliness And A Struggle Towards The Light Which I Too Have Experienced?

      TLS. 1pg. 7 ¼? x 10 ½?. February 2, 1942. Westport, Connecticut. A typed letter signed ?Helen Keller? in purple pencil. She wrote to her friend Villa about the recent death of her husband Thurston: ?After some days absence from home I find your nephew?s letter on my desk. I cannot tell you how distressed and hurt I am over all that has happened to you. It seems like a dreadful dream, I cannot realize it yet with the vivid, happy mental picture I have always had of you and Thurston together. I can only grieve with you in that accumulates suffering and pray for your renewed strength. My lonely heart understands yours, and I know how you will feel in a home bereft of your beloved?s actual presence. But you have ever met fate with an unconquerable spirit, and as the darkness lifts from your inner sight, faith and memory will bring Thurston back to you, yes, even closer than was possible on earth. According to your brave philosophy he has gone on to encounter more wonderful adventures, to acquire greater knowledge and do higher good unto his fellow-creatures. But why should I write thus when words bring no comfort at such a time? Only to let you know that I am exceedingly with you in a loneliness and a struggle towards the Light which I too have experienced. Perhaps you will sometime glance at the booklet, ?We Bereaved? which I am going to send you. If it gives you even one soothing thought, I shall be thankful. Polly [Thomson] was as shocked as I was when Mr. Curren?s letter came, and she joins me in tenderest sympathy.? When Keller is common in letters, she is scarcer in letters with personal content. There is some red staining to the bottom margin, leaving the letter in very good condition.

        GOLD RUSH

      1942. Fine. [MOVIE POSTER, lithograph]. THE GOLD RUSH (United Artists, R-1942). "The Gold Rush" is considered by many to be Chaplin's greatest masterpiece. This is a poster for the 1942 re-release of the 1925 film, for which Chaplin composed and recorded a musical score and added a narration which he recorded himself. British Door Panel (20" X 60"). This color poster shows the "Little Tramp," wrapped in a shawl and shivering in the snow, before a large wooden sign that reads: "THE WORLD'S GREAT | LAUGHING PICTURE! | CHARLIE | CHAPLIN | in | THE | GOLD RUSH | Written and directed by | Charles Chaplin | with MUSIC | and WORDS." In the bottom left corner is a small seal: "Distributed by UNITED ARTISTS," and in the bottom right corner is another small seal, that of the British Board of Film Censors. Printed in very small type in the bottom border, beneath the image, is "Printed in England," a two-line terms-of-use statement, "STAFFORD & CO., LTD., Netherfield, Nottingham : and London," " No 6128A." There is a 2" tear at top, a 1.5 inch tear at the bottom, and a few nicks along the borders. Overall fine.

        Let's Be Offensive: A Revue With Political Punch

      Unity Theatre (1942), London - London's Unity Theatre was organized in 1936; decidedly left-wing in outlook, it had ties to the Communist Party of Great Britain and to Victor Gollancz's Left Book Club Theatre Guild. The Theatre's annual satirical revues, which pioneered the use of such agitprop techniques as dramatic documentary (akin to the "Living Newspapers" of the Federal Theatre in the U.S.), improvisation, and audience participation, marked an important phase in the evolution of dramatic performance art in Great Britain. A really lovely early work by S. John Woods, noted for his film and travel posters (including several for London Transport) in the 1950s. Not found in the Unity Theatre archives at Southern Illinois University. Original lithographed poster, 54cm x 41cm (21" x 16"). Professionally matted and framed (not laid down) beneath UV-protective glass. Fine, unfaded example; Grade A.

        Libertad de Palabra - Una de las Cuatro Libertades Por Las Que Luchan Los Aliados

      El Coordinador de Asuntos Interamericanos, Washington 1942 - A brilliant design, clearly incorporating the surrealist influences that appeared in Brodovitch's work beginning in the late Thirties. This is one of a series of posters commissioned by the Office of Inter-American Affairs in the early years of World War Two, created specifically for Latin American distribution and intended to highlight President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Four Freedoms: Freedom from Fear, Freedom from Want, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion. Other posters in the series were created by E. McKnight Kauffer, John Atherton, and Herbert Bayer. This is an extremely rare wall-size example from the series; the majority of those produced were window-card size. Pictured in Grunberg, Brodovitch (Abrams: 1989). Lithographed poster in four colors, 102cm x 70cm (ca. 40" x 27-3/4"). Several repaired marginal tears; tape adhesion and ink attribution at extreme upper margin; Grade B/B+. Archivally backed on linen.

        Collection of correspondence from Elizabeth Arden Ltd to agents Franklyn and Doris Rogers, Messrs Titcumbs, Chatham, including an Autograph Letter Signed ('Elizabeth Arden') from Arden, and 40 Typed Letters Signed from director T. Gordon Yates.

      Between and 1956; most items on the letterhead of the Elizabeth Arden Ltd British headquarters at 25 Old Bond Street, London. 1942 - The collection of fifty-three Typed Letters Signed and six mimeographed circulars, in various formats, is in good condition on lightly-aged paper, with all texts clear and complete, and with a couple of items with closed tears. Providing an interesting sidelight into workings of the English branch of one of the twentieth-century's leading multinational corporations. Arden's letter (8vo, 1 p), dated 8 April 1955, is addressed to the Rogers' daughter 'Miss J. Rogers'. She writes that she is 'always so delightedf to hear from a member of my world-wide 'family'', and is pleased to read the comments regarding the 'Firmo-Lift promotion'. Of interest is the fact that the signature does not correspond with the stylized one on the letterhead. The letterheads of the other items in the collection carry Arden's real name as 'FLORENCE N LEWIS CITIZEN USA FORMERLY BRITISH'. Yates's letters to the Franklyns, mostly in 4to, and almost all signed 'Gordy', range in topics from sales figures, schedules, dates for visits from the firm's representatives. The Rogers' concession was clearly a successful and well-run one. Yates's letter of 24 May 1950 begins 'Mr. Livonius, once a man of steel, girded his loins and charged towards the Chatham, Rochester, Gillingham area [.] The charm that brings birds out of trees reduced him to a mere pulp and his report talks about nothing but what a wonderful Blush Rose window, wan an excellent stock situation, and the trememndous enthusiasm on the part of Mac and the entire staff. I am completely disgusted!' On 27 October 1953 he writes 'Even superlatives seem inadequate when used in connection with the Titcumbs' treatment visits, and one deplores the poverty of the English language.' Yates's playfulness is apparent on several occasions. His letter of 24 April 1951 begins 'Thank you so much for your rude letter suggesting Doris be relieved of the whole burden of my correspondence. She is so attractive, how can I help myself from making every possible excuse to write?' Also present are six circular news releases from Yates, and six letters from Nancy R. Hall of the firm's display department regarding window displays and signs, together with another sixletters from individuals in the Old Bond Street headquarters. Also included are two copies of 'Elizabeth Arden News', the first from October 1969 (with first and last leaves detached) and the second from June 1972. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        HATTER'S CASTLE (Remarkable Archive of 107 Original Key Book Movie Stills from the 1942 Film Adaptation)

      London: British Paramount, 1942. Cronin, A. J. HATTER'S CASTLE. 107 Original Double Weight key book stills from the infamous 1942 British Film Noir HATTER'S CASTLE based on the 1931 novel by A. J. Cronin. The film, made and distributed by British Paramount, was shot in England during the middle of WW2, few artifacts survive from the film, and finding another nearly complete set like this is a hard-to-imagine situation. The stills are all different, no duplicates, and the condition is uniformly VG-Fine with minor blemishes. The movie starred Robert Newton, a very young and beautiful Deborah Kerr, an equally young and handsome James Mason and Enid Stamp-Taylor who, although perhaps a long forgotten actress, is lovingly photographed here as befits her beauty. All double weight, all roughly 8 x 11, glossy originals with holes, as called for, to insert into 1942 "key book" publicity binders. Exceedingly rare survival.. Unbound. Near Fine.
