        Teenie Weenie Town; Days; & Neighbors. 3 Book set

      McGraw Hill, New York 1942 - DONAHEY TEENIE WEENIE TOWN, DAYS & NEIGHBORS, REALLY NICE !! Featured here is the Complete 3 Book Set of WILLIAM DONAHEY'S Last FIRST EDITION TITLES, done during WORLD WAR II, and, as a result, are Exceeding Difficult to find as publishers faced paper restrictions due to the war effort, and I rarely find Complete Sets, and I have never had one with ALL THREE IN FIRST PRINTING!! Published by Whittlesey House for McGraw-Hill, and done in 7" x 9" Format for the first two, and slightly smaller 6+" x 8" for the last title. Each Title was illustrated by Donahey with 10 FULL PAGE PLATES, + numerous in text illustrations and FULL COLOR ILLUSTRATED END PAPERS. The 1942 TEENIE WEENIE TOWN was done with ALL 10 PLATES in COLOR, whereas both the 1944 TEENIE WEENIE DAYS & 1945 TEENIE WEENIE NEIGHBORS were done with 5 in COLOR and 5 in B&W. (Restrictions and Cost). These first printings of this series were done in cloth, with only the First Book having a Paste-on Illustration. Others have only a stamped illustration. The Cloth became increasingly difficult to publish with, so later printings were done in paper covered boards. The exteriors of the books are all VG++ - F with just a hint of light dusting, soiling or a faint mark. NOTE: The first two books simply left the bottom of the copyright page blank with no "First Printing" stated. The last book finally did indicate it. With all 3, all additional printings were indicated. The Interiors are Nearly Pristine, with NO NAMES, MARKS or DAMAGE !! They are sequenced first to last. Well, there it is - Pictures speak a thousand words! Sorry, I will neither split them up nor discount them! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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 .
