        Go Down Moses and Other Stories

      Random House, New York 1942 - Octavo. . One of 100 copies, signed by the author. Published May 11, 1942, by Random House, dedicated "To Mammy Caroline Barr, Mississippi, [1840-1940]: Who was born in slavery and who gave to my family a fidelity without stint or calculation of recompense and to my childhood an immeasurable devotion and love." One of Faulkner's masterpieces, Go Down, Moses is an episodic novel consisting of short stories, most of which were published elsewhere. A difficult novel at times, the novel tells the story of the McCaslin family, beginning with the family patriarch Lucius Quintus Carothers McCaslin, and his many descendants, both black and white. It is a noteworthy exploration of race, particularly as it is compounded with miscegenation, and is concerned also with the vanishing wilderness. Faulkner intended the stories as a novel and the words "and Other Stories" were dropped from the trade edition. This is the smallest limitation of any of Faulkner's books and as such drastically limits the number of complete collections of his works. [Petersen, Clark. Each In Its Ordered Place: A Faulkner Collector's Notebook A.23.2a] Two tiny stains on foredge, otherwise an immaculate copy in original tissue wrapper, housed in a custom made slipcase three-quarter brick red cloth over salmon colored, textured paper boards, top edge gilt [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

"Taking her cue from her small sons, Aristides and Michael, Burton chose subjects that would intrigue children [including] Mary Ann, the steam shovel [Burton's books] have heroes and heroines children can understand and enjoy, ingenious and satisfactory endings and lively illustrations. The books survive because they exhibit so effectively the elements most basic to children's literature" (Silvey, 109-10). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The citizens of Ciudad Real were almost excited when news broke that a black jaguar was on the loose in their city.

Then, a young girl is found ... nothing left but a mangled, bloody body. The roaming black jaguar is blamed, but one man wondered if possibly there was NO black jaguar ... it was created as an alibi for the killer. Handsome, bright copy.

Im II.Band werden in unverblümter wissenschaftlicher Offenheit und erschöpfender Ausführlichkeit das Wesen und Verhalten des Zigeuners (insbesondere natürlich seine Kriminalität) behandelt, mit Ausführungen wie z.B.: "Ihre (d.h. der Zigeuner) sonstigen charakteristischen Eigenschaften: . . . eine sonderbare Mischung von Eitelkeit und Gemeinheit, Ziererei, Ernst und wirklicher Leichtfertigkeit; dabei zeigen sie noch eine entwürdigende Kriecherei im Tun und Wesen, darauf berechnet, andere durch List zu übervorteilen; sie nehmen nicht die geringste Rücksicht auf Wahrheit und behaupten und lügen mit einer nie errötenden Frechheit, da ihnen die Scham gänzlich mangelt. Diese Schilderung ist noch durch zwei Eigenschaften zu ergänzen, die der Zigeuner in hohem Maße besitzt: seine Rachsucht - auch im internen Leben der Zigeuner spielt heute noch das Gesetz der Blutrache eine wichtige Rolle - und vor allem seine Feigheit" / " Erwägt man, daß der Zigeuner an sich nicht weniger begabt ist als der Kulturmensch, daß dieser aber alle seine Kräfte seit Jahrtausenden den verschiedensten, höchsten Zwecken zugewendet hat, während die Zigeuner von jeher all ihr Wissen und Können dem einen Zweck, auf Kosten der anderen zu leben, angepaßt haben, dann läßt es sich allerdings begreifen, daß sie darin Leistungen aufweisen können, die den anderen Sterblichen als unmöglich erscheinen" / "Seit 1938 wurde eine großzügige Bestandsaufnahme aller in Deutschland lebenden Zigeuner und Zigeunermischlinge und deren rassenbiologische Sichtung in die Wege geleitet, die die Grundlage entsprechender Maßnahmen bilden soll. Zigeuner und Zigeunermischlinge I. Grades sind als artfremd zu betrachten, ihre Verehelichung mit Deutschblütigen ist aufgrund der Nürnberger Gesetze untersagt" / "Daß ein Zigeuner den Begriff von jungfräulicher Ehre, von Heiligkeit der Ehe usw. nur einigermaßen hochhielte, kommt nicht vor. Er balgt und rauft mit seinem Nebenbuhler um das Weibchen, aber das tut das Tier auch; Ehre und Scham im Sinne des Kulturmenschen kennt der Zigeuner nicht" / "Was bei Diebstählen der Zigeuner kriminalistisch am wichtigsten ist, dürfte die große Geschicklichkeit sein, mit der sie hierbei zu Werke gehen. Dies ist namentlich deshalb von Bedeutung, weil man es bei einem vorgekommenen Diebstahl oft für unmöglich hält, daß ein Fremder der Täter sein könnte und man Dienstboten verdächtigt. Und trotzdem waren es in manchen solchen Fällen Zigeuner, welche die niemandem zuzutrauende Geschicklichkeit, Frechheit und Beobachtungsgabe doch gehabt haben. Was der Dienstbote bei jahrelangem Aufenthalt im Hause, der Nachbar bei jahrzehntelangem Nebeneinanderwohnen nicht bemerkt hat - die alte Zigeunermutter, die bettelnd, wahrsagend oder kurpfuschend gekommen ist, hat es binnen wenigen Minuten so genau gesehen und kombiniert, daß aufgrund ihrer Wahrnehmungen der verwegenste Diebstahl durchgeführt werden konnte. Wo angeblich "keine Katze durchschlüpfen kann", dort rutscht der kleine Zigeunerjunge aus und ein, als ob man ihm Flügeltüren geöffnet hätte, und wohin kein Akrobat mit aller Geschicklichkeit hinzukommen vermöchte, dorthin langt der Zigeuner mit der niemals fehlenden, immer greifenden Wurfangel . . . Nur sein Geruch bleibt zurück, sein eigentümlicher, unverkennbarer, langhaftender Geruch, den niemand vergißt, der ihn einmal wahrgenommen hat. Er soll dem ebenfalls charakteristischen Negergeruch etwas ähnlich sein"

        The Insolence of Man. [Unpublished carbon typescript.]

      [1942] 1942 - 92 leaves (255 × 205 mm) of carbon typescript, comprising title page, introductory quote, table of chapters, and text pages 1-86, housed in an olive cloth chemise and slipcase. Small holes along left margin from removed staples, otherwise clean and all in excellent condition. Original carbon typescript to White's unpublished "philosophical pamphlet" The Insolence of Man, with over a hundred notes and corrections in White's hand, and several critical notes in the margins by David Garnett, to whom White sent this carbon typescript for critique. There are numerous corrections by White and annotations by Garnett. T. H. White, "during the first half of this destitute year [1942]. wrote a treatise, never published, called 'The Insolence of Man.' Since 'The Book of Merlyn' was held up he compressed its non-Arthurian contents into a tract for the times. The Insolence, Importance, Ferocity, Ingenuity, Problems and Future of Man were severally dealt with as though he were lecturing to a class. The lectures are eloquent and convinced - for they are enlargements of his convictions; but the lecturer's tone of voice is contemptuous and the Jack-of-All-Trades quality of White's mind - which he gave England Have My Bones and The Sword in the Stone their flicker of learning lightly worn - shows as parade and arrogance." (Sylvia Townsend Warner, T. H. White, A Biography, p. 194). David Garnett's letter to White regarding this manuscript was written January 31, 1943, and caused a short break in their friendship: "Dear Tim, I was very glad to get your letter and the M.S. Here I shall note down one or two criticisms of the matter which occur to me. (1) You are definite enough about not accepting a God in Man's Image, or a God as judge of man's importance, & I am glad to find it so. But you are still uncritically accepting an absolute ethic which happens to be vaguely Christian & 19th Century. For example you say: 'You can be ingeniously cruel or ingeniously wicked.' Chapter 4. But wickedness, like Justice & other such concepts varies according to place & time." (David Garnett, The White/Garnett Letters, p. 123). A unique, unpublished text, and an important mouthpiece for White as Merlyn-esque preacher, revealing the the far-reaching thought operating behind the scenes of his Arthurian "children's" books.

        THE BLUE DAHLIA: RARE GLASSCOMING-ATTRACTION SLIDE FOR THE 1942 MOVIE, BASED ON CHANDLER'S ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY, STARRING ALAN LADD, VERONICA LAKE, AND WILLIAM BENDIX

      [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.

      Typed Letter Signed ?FDR? as President, one page, 7? x 9?. The White House, Washington, August 25, 1942. To Frederic A. Delano, his mother?s brother. Fine condition.In full, ?Dear Uncle Fred:- Many thanks for sending me that clipping about Tom Paine. I, too, have always had a keen interest in him. His principal mistake lay in his rather violent opposition to Washington in the campaign of 1792 [sic, 1796].?FDR meant 1796, not 1792. There was no campaign in 1792; Washington was unanimously reelected. By 1796, two political parties had been formed. For President, Federalists supported John Adams and anti-Federalists (also known as Republicans and Democratic-Republicans) supported Thomas Jefferson. In 1791, Paine had dedicated the first part of his ?Rights of Man? to Pres. Washington. On May 6, 1792, Washington wrote Paine, in part, ?My thanks for the token of your remembrance, in the 50 copies of ?Rights of Man? ... I rejoice in the information of your personal

        Corregidor: Isle of Delusion

      Shanghai, China: Press Bureau of the Imperial Japanese Army General Headquarters in China. Printed by The Mercury Press, 1942. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good -. First Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 114 pages; photographs throughout. Slightly bowed cover; worn with taped spine. Lightly soiled pages. Dampstain to rear cover and endpapers. Owner&#39;s name (Lt. Col. R. W. Carlton) inside front cover. The number &#39;166&#39; is stamped in the upper left corner of the rear free endpaper. An exceptionally scarce propaganda account of the fall of Corregidor, prepared by a Nisei traitor who served as an officer in the Japanese Army Propaganda Corps. The book was apparently published for use in the Philippines and also distributed to at least some Allied civilian internees in Shanghai prior to their repatriation in 1943. Chapters include General Wainwright Surrenders, Prisoners of War, Fort Mills Hospital, Racial Discrimination, Goodbye Corregidor, an interview with Lieutenant Commander F. H. Callahan, General Wainwright&#39;s Appeal, Official Communiques, and Santo Tomas Interment Camp. Uno was a American citizen and strong supporter of Japanese aggression in China. Although he spoke little Japanese, Uno moved to Japan in 1937 and wrote pro-Japanese articles from the Chinese front for publication in the pro-Tokyo Far Eastern Review and other Nisei publications. Between tours in China, Uno returned to the US and made numerous speeches in Japanese communities throughout the west, often with the support of the Japanese American Citizens League. He also engaged in confrontational debates about war with Chinese-Americans. He lost his American citizenship after joining the Japanese Army in 1941. Following the publication this book, Uno was instrumental in broadcasting a propaganda radio program, "The Zero Hour," to US forces in the Pacific that featured Iva Toguri D&#39;Aquino, better known after the war as Tokyo Rose. Uno had three loyal brothers who served in the US Army; each publically requested the opportunity to execute their bother should that become possible. OCLC notes copies at only seven libraries. No auctions recorded at ABPC or AmericanaExchange.
