Frühzeitig und rasch hatte der Reichsführer SS die besondere Begabung, die speziellen Fähigkeiten Heydrichs erkannt: schon 1931 übertrug er ihm das schwierige Spezialgebiet! Damit war der rechte Mann am rechten Platz. Nur ein untadeliger Nationalsozialist, ein Mann größter Tatkraft, ein Mann mit ebenso sicherem wie klarem Urteilsvermögen konnte die gestellte Aufgabe meistern. R.H. unterschied mit durchdringendem Verstand und untrüglichem Instinkt Echtes von scheinbar Echtem, Menschlich-Allzumenschliches von wirklich Schlechten . . . Verfolgung von Feinden der Partei und des Staates. In wirklich kürzester Zeit überlegte Heydrich sich jeweils alle Möglichkeiten seiner Gegner, breitete sie wohlgeordnet, wie einen Fächer, vor dem Reichsführer SS aus und konnte meistens in kürzester Zeit Erledigung von Auftrag und Aufgabe melden . . . Er sah, daß der Führer sich keine Ruhepause könnte, und deshalb kannte auch er weder sattes Behagen noch pflegliche Ruhe, sondern rastlos arbeitete sein schöpferischer Geist . . . Wer mit SS-Obergruppenführer H. zusammenarbeitete, hatte immer wieder helle Freude an seiner sportlich-soldatischen Haltung, an seinem umfassenden Wissen und seinem sicheren Urteil. Stets blieb er mit unbeirrbarer Härte auf der von ihm als weltanschaulich richtig erkannten Linie! So beweglich seine Methoden waren, so zäh und stur blieb seine nationalsozialistische Haltung. Die NSDAP verlor mit R.H. einen ihrer Besten!" (Reichsleiter Bormann) / "Wir müssen an uns selbst arbeiten. In unerhörte Selbstzucht müssen wir die ewigen Grundsätze der uns vom Führer gegebenen Weltanschauung in uns verankern und einhalten. Um unser Volk zu erhalten, müssen wir dem Gegner gegenüber hart sein, auch auf die Gefahr hin, dem einzelnen Gegner menschlich damit einmal wehe zu tun und eventuell auch bei manchen sicherlich wohlmeinenden Menschen als unbeherrschte Rohlinge verschrieen zu werden. Wenn wir nämlich als Nationalsozialisten unsere geschichtliche Aufgabe nicht erfüllen, weil wir zu objektiv und menschlich waren, dann wird man uns trotzdem nicht mildernde Umstände anrechnen. Es wird einfach heißen: vor der Geschichte haben sie ihre Aufgabe nicht erfüllt. . . Wir müssen vorbildlich die vom Führer gegebenen ewigen Grundsätze vorleben. Wir, die SS, wollen der weltanschaulichen Stoßtrupp und Schutzstaffel der Idee des Führers sein und gleichzeitig in der Erfüllung der Aufgaben der Staatspolizei ein innenpolitisches Schutzkorps des nationalsozialistischen Staates" (R.H.) / "In diesem Geist politischen Soldatentums führte er seine SS-Männer in äußerster Zucht, so hart zu sein, wie es die Sicherheit des Ganzen verlangte, aber niemals härter, als es das Gesamtschicksal des Volkes notwendig machte. In dieser Entwicklung, die Heydrich der SS unlösbar verband, und die ihn polizeiliche Mittel aus dem großen Ordnungswillen des Reiches in Europa handhaben ließ, übertrug ihm der Führer die Stellvertretung des Reichsprotektors für Böhmen und Mähren" (Oberstgruppenführer Daluege) / "Mit dem Tode des SS-Obergruppenführers REINHARD HEYDRICH, Stellvertretenden Reichsprotektors in Böhmen und Mähren und Chef des SD und Sicherheitspolizei, hat die nationalsozialistische Bewegung abermals einen opfervollen Beitrag zum Freiheitskampf unseres Volkes gegeben. So unfassbar für uns der Gedanke war, daß dieser strahlende, große Mensch nach kaum vollendetem 38.Lebensjahr nicht mehr unter uns weilen und in seiner Freunde Mitte kämpfen sollte, so unersetzbar sein einmaliges Können, verbunden mit einem Charakter von seltener Reinheit und einem Verstand von durchdringender Logik und Klarheit ist, so würden wir nicht in seinem Sinne handeln, wenn wir nicht hier an seinem Sarge die heldischen Gedanken vom Stirb und Werde, die einstmals unser Volk beim Tode ihrer Liebsten bewegt haben, wieder zu unseren eigenen machen würden . . . Die Jahre 1933-36 waren erfüllt von vieler Arbeit und zahllosen Anfangsschwierigkeiten, tatenfrohem unbekümmerten Zupacken im Ausland gegenüber Emigranten und Landesverrätern, harter schmerzvolle Pflichterfüllung im Inneren . . . Ich darf hier auch einmal vor aller Öffentlichkeit die Gedanken dieses von den Untermenschen gefürchteten, von Juden und sonstigen Verbrechen gehassten und verleumdeten und auch einst von manchem Deutschen nicht verstandenen Mannes darlegen. Alle Maßnahmen und Handlungen, die er traf, packte er als Nationalsozialist und SS-Mann an. Aus den tiefen Gründen seines Herzens und seines Blutes heraus hat er die Weltanschauung Adolf Hitlers erfüllt, verstanden und verwirklicht. Alle Probleme, die er zu lösen hatte, fasste er aus der grundsätzlichen Erkenntnis echter rassischer Weltanschauung und aus dem Wissen heraus an, daß Reinerhaltung, Sicherung und Schutz unseres Blutes das höchste Gesetz ist . . . Am 27. Mai aber traf ihn die hinterhältige Bombe englischer Herkunft, geworfen von einem bezahlten Subjekt aus den Reihen wertlosesten Untermenschentums, und brachte ihn zur Strecke. Furcht und allzu große Vorsicht waren ihm fremd, ihn, der einer der besten Sportsmänner der SS war, ein kühner Fechter, Reiter, Schwimmer, Fünfkämpfer, ein Sportsmann an Können und an Gesinnung. Kennzeichnend für seinen Mut und seine Energie jedoch ist es, daß er selbst, schon schwer verwundet, sich noch wehrte und zweimal auf den Attentäter schoss" (Reichsführer SS Himmler) / "DER FÜHRER: ICH HABE DIESEM TOTEN NUR NOCH WENIGE WORTE ZU WIDMEN. ER WAR EINER DER BESTEN NATIONALSOZIALISTEN, EINER DER STÄRKSTEN VERTEIDIGER DES DEUTSCHEN REICHSGEDANKENS, EINER DER GRÖSSTEN GEGNER ALLER FEINDE DIESES REICHES. ER IST ALS EIN BLUTZEUGE GEFALLEN FÜR DIE ERHALTUNG UND SICHERUNG DES REICHES. ALS FÜHRER DER PARTEI UND ALS FÜHRER DES DEUTSCHEN REICHES GEBE ICH DIR, MEINE LIEBER KAMERAD HEYDRICH, NACH DEM PARTEIGENOSSEN TODT ALS ZWEITEM DEUTSCHEN DIE HÖCHSTE AUSZEICHNUNG, DIE ICH ZU VERLEIHEN HABE: DIE OBERSTE STUFE DES DEUTSCHEN ORDENS" (ADOLF HITLER)

        Papers Relating to the Foreign Relations of the United States: 1919 - The Paris Peace Conference, Volumes I - XIII (The Complete Thirteen Volume Set)

      Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 1942 - A very good copy of the apparent first hard cover edition (no explicit edition or printing statement) of the complete thirteen volume set, lacking dust-jackets (as issued). The text of each volume is wholly unmarked, pristine -- no owner's signature(s), marks, notes, or highlighting of any kind -- and the red cloth binding with gilt lettering of each volume is remarkably bright and fresh in appearance, though the brilliance of the spines varies (see scan), due to variable sunning. These are NOT ex-library copies, having issued from the personal library of a scholar whose work was focused on the early history of the international peace movement. A stunning copy of the complete set. [Please note: Due to the size and weight of the set extra shipping may be required depending on the destination and speed of delivery requested. International buyers especially may wish to inquire. Quotations gladly provided, and additional scans are available upon request. We do ship daily.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Franklin Delano Roosevelt Thanks His Uncle for a Piece on Thomas Paine

      Washington, D.C. 1942 - Typed Letter Signed as President, to Frederic A. Delano. Washington, D.C., August 25, 1942, 1 p., 7 x 9 in. On White House stationery. Complete TranscriptDear 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].Historical BackgroundFranklin Delano Roosevelt thanks his Uncle Fred, his mother's brother, for sending an article on Thomas Paine, a Revolutionary figure in whom the president had "a keen interest." However, FDR was mistaken in his reference to Paine's opposition to Washington in the presidential campaign of 1792. There was no campaign in 1792; Washington ran unopposed and was unanimously reelected. Paine's opposition came in 1796, after two parties had formed: the Federalists and the anti-Federalists, the nascent Democratic - Republican party. In 1792, Paine and Washington were on good terms, as evidenced by a series of correspondence between the two. In 1791, Paine dedicated the first part of his "Rights of Man" to Washington and President Washington wrote Paine on May 6, 1792, "My thanks for the token of your remembrance, in the 50 copies of 'Rights of Man' . I rejoice in the information of your personal prosperity."While in Paris in 1793, Paine, a naturalized American citizen since 1774, was arrested and imprisoned. On Sept. 20, 1795, Paine wrote Washington hoping that the president could affect his release. "After you were informed of my imprisonment in France, it was incumbent on you to have made some enquiry into the cause." Paine concluded."I cannot understand your silence upon this subject.I shall continue to think you treacherous, till you give me cause to think otherwise." During the campaign of 1796, Paine again wrote Washington on July 30, 1796, "I also declare myself opposed to almost the whole of your administration; for I know it to have been deceitful, if not perfidious." Paine then published his letter, cementing the acrimony between him and Washington, and by extension John Adams, the Federalist candidate in 1796.

        JIM'S BOOK A COLLECTION OF POEMS AND SHORT STORIES.

      New York: Privately Printed, 1942. - Large octavo. Cloth and boards, lettered in gilt. Spine faintly sunned, with a few stray marks to the upper portions of boards, usual toning of the endsheets, but a very good copy. Enclosed in a custom half-morocco folding clamshell box. First edition of the poet's first book, privately printed by his father for presentation. At the time, Merrill was sixteen, and enrolled at Lawrenceville School. This copy bears the poet's presentation inscription, dated contemporary with publication: "To Miss Evans with love and Merry Christmas James Ingram Merrill. 1942." Though the exact number of copies printed has long been a subject of speculation, the bibliographers hypothesize that the edition consisted of "about 200 copies." Whatever the size of the edition, the author presented copies to friends over the following five decades in sufficient numbers to make those inscribed upon publication the very distinct -- and manifestly most desirable -- minority. The nature and occasion of the inscription suggests the recipient may have been a close family friend or teacher. HAGSTROM & BIXBY A1a.
