        De complete clandestiene productie van deze prachtige serie bibliofiele werken, in het geheim gedrukt in een klein aantal exemplaren onder de bezetting door de Nazi's. (22 titels).

      'De naam van de pers was een sardonische verwijzing naar het maximale gewicht van papier voor onofficieel drukwerk, dat door de bezetter was toegestaan' (Purvis). Het fonds van de Vijf Ponden Pers, gesticht door A.A. Balkema, W. Hellinga en J. van Krimpen in 1942, vormt een verzameling van zeer diverse, verfijnd ontworpen boeken, sommige heel groot, andere heel klein. De typografie is vaak van J. van Krimpen, soms van Dick Elffers, Susanne Heynemann, S.H. de Roos en anderen. Volgens H.N. Werkman in een brief aan August Henkels waren de boeken van de Vijf Ponden Pers bijna té mooi: 'Het was me of ik de producten van lettergieterijen in handen had. Wat is dat allemaal onberispelijk van uitvoering en wat is dat van uiterlijk en innerlijk weergaloos select. Je slaat je handen van verbazing ineen als je zooiets ziet in deze tijd. In déze tijd waarin je haast geen vel goed papier machtig kunt worden'.De staat is in het algemeen prima.* 1. Charles BAUDELAIRE Le vin. Cinq poëmes choisis dans Les Fleurs du Mal.

Mynors Bright from the shorthand manuscript in the Pepysian Library at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Samuel Pepys (23 February 1633 26 May 1703) was an English naval administrator and Member of Parliament who is now most famous for the diary he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. Although Pepys had no maritime experience, he rose by patronage, hard work and his talent for administration, to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and subsequently King James II. The detailed private diary Pepys kept is one of the most important primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Fire of London.

        HOW TO COOK A WOLF

      New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1942. New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1942 Fisher, M. F. K. HOW TO COOK A WOLF. New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1942. First Edition. Fisher, M.F.K. New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1942]. 8vo., light gray cloth decoration with wolf's head surrounded by vegetables stamped white at the upper cover & with titles stamped white at the spine. A fine copy [a bit of foxing at the spine], Contents fine & fresh, in a very good or better attractive price-clipped dustwrapper with some neatly executed professional conservation primarily at the extremities. Author's scarce third book, especially so in dustwrapper - nicely preserved. A very attractive copy. Fisher wrote "How to Cook a Wolf" in 1942, in the midst of World War II, just as food rationing programs were kicking into high gear with strict limits placed on basics like sugar, butter, meat, & coffee. War-time slogans encouraged American households to "make do, or do without." [Fisher wrote "How to Cook a Wolf." as a reminder of the pleasure - the rapture - you could still find in food, even under a tight budget or war-time rationing. "I early on thought, as long as we have to eat to live, we may as well have fun doing it. There should be some enjoyment of food, as we do with making love, or keeping warm. It's one of the three basic needs of our lives," she said. "How to Cook a Wolf" reads like an issue of Lady's Home Journal, if the editorial staff were taken over by a philosopher with an empty stomach, a slightly tipsy poet and your mischievous, foxy godmother who once kept many lovers. Best lines include: "Probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg, until it is broken." On cooking during a war-time black-out: "Use as many fresh things as you can, always, and then trust to luck and your blackout cupboard and what you have decided, inside yourself, about the dignity of man." And this advice, from the chapter called "How to Lure the Wolf": "One way to look your prettiest in the kitchen, and make the wolf think that even if his hot breath whuffs through the keyhole and ruffles your very curls you are nigh adamant, is to put up a little mirror." "How to Cook a Wolf" is part cookbook, part essay collection. Fisher shares practical recipes that can be made cheaply: how to make your own toothpaste; a recipe for fried calves' brains, since that cut of meat was cheaper and more readily available under rationing programs; instructions for a good, low-cost sherry cocktail.] - Weekend America.. 1st Edition.

        Corregidor: Isle of Delusion

      Shangai, China: Press Bureau of the Imperial Japanese Army General Headquarters in China. Printed by The Mercury Press, 1942. Shangai, China: Press Bureau of the Imperial Japanese Army General Headquarters in China. Printed by The Mercury Press, 1942. 114 pages; photographs throughout. Bowed cover; worn with taped spine. Lightly soiled pages. Dampstain to rear cover and endpapers. Owner's name (Lt. Col. R. W. Carlton) inside front cover. 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'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'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 four libraries (Cornell, University of Pittsburgh, New York Public Library, and the Hoover Institute). No auctions recorded at ABPC or AmericanaExchange.. First Edition.

        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.

(frontispiece portrait, B&W photographic plates) Memoir by a pioneering recording engineer, whose career in what was not yet called the "music industry" went back to the very beginning: "As Emile Berliner's assistant, he helped to perfect the disc record, and in 1898 [1898!] was sent to Europe to persuade the musical celebrities of the day to make the first Red Seal records. As chief recorder for the British Gramophone Company he knew Caruso, Tamagno, Patti, Melba, Paderewski, Kreisler, Nikisch, Toscanini, Walter, and all the other glamorous personalities of an age already legendary. He also journeyed far afield on the hunt for folk and special music to record, to Russia, India, and the Far East, encountering many adventures amusing and otherwise on the road." .
