        [World War II Poster:] WE FRENCH WORKERS WARN YOU DEFEAT MEANS SLAVERY, STARVATION, DEATH [caption title]

      Washington, DC: GPO / Office of War Information, 1942.. Oblong folio broadside (28.5 x 40"; 72 x 102 cm). Printed by offset lithography in colors, with OWI/GPO imprint and date in extreme lower margin. Professionally linen mounted, retaining full margins, with no signs of restoration in the process. A bright, fine example. A superb poster attacking the suppression of workers' freedom under the Vichy government as symptomatic of the far greater possibilities of brutality. The image depicts a group of French workers, from shoulders up with hands raised above their heads, against the background of a brick wall on which is posted a scarlet broadside printing in pseudo-Gothic lettering an "Official Vichy Decree" ordering the compulsory service of all men between 18 and 50 in matters "necessary in the superior interest of the state." This is one of the two posters produced from artwork by Shahn during his tenure with the OWI from the Autumn of 1942 until the Summer of the following year. Although he produced a number of images for the agency, the others were dismissed as too violent, or as not sufficiently appropriate to the topic of the home front and were not used. Shortly thereafter, he began his work with the CIO-PAC. war litgraph

        London Replanned: The Royal Academy Planning Committee's Interim Report (October 1942 First Printing)

      London: Country Life, 1942. First Edition. Softcover. October 1942. Large 4to. Red and b/w pictorial cover. 32 pp. B/w plates, maps and plans throughout. Detailed and highly ambitious plans from 1942 for the eventual post-war rebuilding and remodelling of key areas of central London. Many of these plans did not reach realization, but offer an intriguing glimpse into the thinking of the architects and planners of the time. Similar and slightly earlier plans had been mooted, around 1940 (and working on modernist designs of the 1930s), but this 1942 report was perhaps the first to offer substantial detailed plans, as well as real hope to the battered but unbowed capital. Book is in very good bright condition. All pages complete including advertisements at rear. No inscriptions or markings. Very light and unobtrusive cockling crinkle to the outer edges. Spine joint of the cover had some splitting, so has been carefully and neatly repaired and reinforced on reverse side. Overall this is a superb first printing of this fascinating publication. VG+

        Collected Poems

      Garden City, New York: Garden City Publishing, 1942. Later edition. Frontispiece portrait photograph of the author by Doris Ulmann. [xviii], 453, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth. Head of spine browned, else near fine in chipped dust-jacket with loss along top edge. Later edition. Frontispiece portrait photograph of the author by Doris Ulmann. [xviii], 453, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed with the Early Poem "Forest Flowers". Inscribed by Frost to Reginald Cook with the 8-line poem "Forest Flowers." Reginald "Doc" Cook was a Middlebury professor and friend of Frost's. He was an honorary pallbearer at the funeral of Frost's wife Elinor, and Cook would visit Frost during the poet's summer stays in Ripton, VT. The early poem "Forest Flowers," which opens with the lines "Some flowers take station close to where we stay, And some draw up on either side of the way," was originally published in 1917 in The Pinkerton Annual, the literary magazine of Pinkerton Academy, Derry, New Hampshire, where Frost taught from 1906 to 1911. The poem did not appear in any of Frost's lifetime editions, though a ten-line variant titled "Tutelary Elves" was published in 1966. The original poem was separately published in 1978 as Forest Flowers: An Early Poem Recovered by the Friends of the Amherst College Library. Frost has added a note beneath his transcription of the poem, "This was written almost earlier than anything else in this book." This volume is a later printing of the 1939 Collected Poems and includes the 1942 collection A Witness Tree.

        Invent for Victory [poster]

      Washington, DC: National Inventors Council, Department of Commerce, [1942]. Poster Poster. Near Fine. Roughly 20.25 by 27.75 inches. Offset lithographed poster. Text reads: Invent for Victory. All Americans who have an invention or an idea which might be useful to their country are urged to send it immediately to National Inventors Council, Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C.' The poster depicts a ship, a jeep, artillery pieces, a tank, and airplanes on the right-hand side and an easel with a drawing of a tank on the left. A well-known and widely-reproduced poster from the Second World War. Originals, however, are rather uncommon. The artist, Elmo White, was a career artist for the federal government. He began work at the Government Printing Office early in the war and spent most of his later career with the US Department of Agriculture. A few small surface nicks in the upper left (not affecting the image), one old center fold; mounted on linen. A very nice example.

        Porcelain insulation piece and barbed wire bracket from the electric fence system encircling Stalag Luft III ? ?The Great Escape? POW camp

      From the electric fence system encircling Stalag Luft III:(1) Enamel porcelain insulation piece, 2.5? diameter, enamel chipped. Underside damaged. Good condition.(2) Curved metal barbed wire bracket, 21? x 0.75?. Fine patina. Good condition.Stalag Luft III POW camp was situated in Sagan, 100 miles southeast of Berlin, now called Zagan, in Upper Silesia, Poland. All the prisoners of war were flying officers of the British Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm and American U.S. Army Air Force. The first camp compound opened in March 1942, followed by other compounds in 1943 and 1944. It held about 10,000 officers. Stalag Luft III was immortalized in the 1963 motion picture, ?The Great Escape,? starring Steve McQueen. On the night of March 24-25, 1944, 76 of the 600 prisoners involved in the plan escaped through tunnels they had dug before German guards spotted them. The escape from the camp was the single greatest freedom attempt by POWs in World War II. Of the 76 who tried to escape, 50 were recaptured and executed by the Gestapo on Hitler?s orders, three successfully escaped, and the rest were returned to Stalag Luft III.Closed at the end of January 1945 as the Russians advanced through Poland, the camp was bulldozed completely by the middle of 1946. Polish souvenir hunters began unearthing pieces for the British market from the mid 1950s. These pieces were purchased from a British source in the 1970s and sold to University Archives by the British auction house, Bonhams.
