        Columbus Erdglobus in 12 Segmenten und zwei Polkappen. Modell 200, politisch-physisch mit wirtschaftsgeographischen Eintragungen. Maßstab 1 : 40 000 000. Bearbeitet von O. Winkel. Pappkugel mit 12 kolorierten Papiersegmenten, Halbmeridianring aus Aluminium, Holzfuß mit eingearbeitetem Kompaß umd Aluminiumfassung. Durchmesser etwa 34 cm, Höhe ca. 52 cm (in Australien eine kleine Fehlstelle, wenige ganz kleine Schabstellen und ein paar kleine Braunflecke, sonst wohlerhaltenes Exemplar).

      Berlin - Lichterfelde: Columbusverlag Paul Oestergaard [1942 oder 1943].. . Seltener Globus aus der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus mit den entsprechenden Gebietsansprüchen. Österreich ist "angeschlossen", Tschechien und Polen existieren nicht mehr. Die Grenze zur Sowjetunion ist bereits bis kurz vor Minsk und Odessa verschoben, während auf einem vorliegenden, verlagsseitig auf 1941 datierten Globus "nur" Polen in das Deutsche Reich eingegliedert ist und die Grenze zu Rußland durch die ehemalige polnische Grenze bestimmt ist. Dementsprechend kann der vorliegende Globus frühestens 1942 und spätestens 1943 hergestellt worden sein und dürfte damit die letzte Auflage des berühmten Globus vor Kriegsende sein, da vom Columbusverlag nach 1943 keine Globen mehr hergestellt wurden. - Vgl. Lehmann 96.

        Archive of Eight Typed Letters Signed

      Maryland and Ontario, 1942. unbound. All of these letters were written to Mr. Rodgers, a member of the Executive Board of the Council for Democracy. Four of the letters (totaling six pages) are on 7.5 x 5.75-inch personal stationery from Maynard's home in Westminster, Maryland, dated June 23 to August 19, 1942. Three of the letters (totaling four pages) are on 11 x 8.5-inch letterhead from Assumption College in Windsor, Ontario, dated from July 6 to September 23, 1942. The remaining letter is on a plain sheet of 11 x 8.5-inch paper with the Westminster address typed in, dated September 17, 1942. In this correspondence, Maynard agrees to write an article about why Catholics should support Russia and also expresses that he does not want to be party to ousting Liam O'Connor, in part: "With regard to the problem of Protestant pacifists, well, I understand that matter rather well, having been brought up as a Protestant..." He disparages Fr. Coughlin: "I hear that [his] school for diplomats is a bluff..." He talks about the request to soften his remarks in a magazine article: "...a delicate subject...and I have tried to handle it with discretion, my main fear now is that I have been so careful as to be a bit colorless..." He also expresses his need to make money. At the time Maynard wrote these letters, he was not in the best of health and was also undergoing economic hardship. The following year, he spent long periods away from home doing research and giving lectures, while the family was chronically short of money (according to T.W. Hendricks "A Historian of American Catholicism"). These letters provide a window into his life and thinking in the summer of 1942. The letters all have natural folds; several have small stains (including one with a paperclip stain), but are all in very good(-) to very good(+) condition. English poet and literary critic who was best known as one of the most influential historians on Roman Catholicism in the United States.

        The Stranger; a novel of the Big Sur [*SIGNED*]

      New York: William Morrow and Company. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1942. First Edition. Hardcover. [a nice solid copy, very light wear to the extremities, tiny tear in cloth at top of spine, light browning to fore-edge; jacket shows wear (tiny tears, a bit of creasing) along top and bottom edges, shallow chipping at spine ends (no text affected)] (illustrated endpapers) INSCRIBED to friends ("Mudge" and "Herbert") and SIGNED (as "The Stranger") by the author on the half-title page, at "Shanagolden / Big Sur, California / Sept. 13th, 1942," several weeks prior to the publication date. The novel is set in the 1870s and tells the story of a rugged man of action and his mail-order bride; eventually (1973) there was a movie version, "Zandy's Bride," starring Gene Hackman and Liv Ullmann. The author's first novel, it is not only a key work of California fiction, but it also had a profound effect on the life of the writer who would come to be most identified with Big Sur: Henry Miller. Miller read the book a few weeks after first coming to the area, and years later he wrote: "Till then I had been only a visitor. The reading of this 'little classic' ... made me more than ever determined to take root here." (Baird & Greenwood 2136) Signed by Author .

        Les Bucoliques *

      A. Gonin/L. Grosclaude, Lausanne/Zurich 3.1942. - Feuillet d'annonce de publication de 4 pages 33 x 26 sur japon mince. Où l'on apprend que le projet originel était d'illustrer Les Bucoliques de Virgile, dont un extrait figurera dans les "Eglogues" parues 5 mois plus tard, ce qu'annonce cet avis de lancement collectif des éditeurs Gonin et Grosclaude pour avril 1942. La raison de la modification de ce projet au bénéfice du premier reste une énigme. Il semble que le second se rabattit sur Morgenthaler pour imager cet ouvrage paru sous sa seule enseigne en octobre, deux mois après les Eglogues.Les deux entreprises, hormis le texte, étaient assez proche, tirage (à 10 exemplaires près) et nombre d'estampes similaires.Notre dossier comporte une lithographie originale refusée de Barraud, avec mention référant au projet initial. Un scoop puisque nous n'avions pas connaissance de la chose lors de l'établissement du catalogue raisonnée des livres illustrés de l'artiste, recyclé dans le sixième chapitre de mon premier essai, OR ANGE, publié chez Slatkine à Genève en 2008.[Cailler & Darel 202-225; Gindrat 27]

        Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy

      New York: Harper & Brothers,, [1942]. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. In a black solander box. An excellent copy in the bright jacket that has a few tiny nicks to extremities, spine a little sunned, and some loss to spine ends. First edition, extremely scarce with the dust jacket. 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).

        [Vintage World War II Poster:] THIS IS NAZI BRUTALITY

      Washington, DC: GPO / Office of War Information, 1942.. Folio broadside (38 x 28"; 97 x 72 cm scant). Printed by offset lithography in colors, with OWI/GPO imprint and date in extreme lower margin. Professionally linen mounted, lower margin with imprint retained, top and side margins trimmed. With signs of minor color fill at apexes of top folds, but otherwise a very good to fine, bright example. Rolled. An exceptionally powerful image, prepared by Shahn in response to the massacre at Lidice, depicting a shackled and hooded man against a brick wall, with the dated newswire report of the Lidice massacre superimposed over the figure, and the brilliant red caption: "This is Nazi Brutality." Shahn worked for the OWI from the Autumn of 1942 until the Summer of the following year, and although he produced a number of images for the agency, only two were actually utilized -- the others were dismissed as too violent, or as not sufficiently appropriate to the topic of the home front. Shortly thereafter, he began his work with the CIO-PAC.
