        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's name (Lt. Col. R. W. Carlton) inside front cover. The number '166' 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'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 only seven libraries.

        Tafereelen, geschilderd door Gerard de Lairesse, in de Raadkamer van den Hove van Justitie van Holland, Zeeland, en Westvriesland; ... Les tableaux qui se trouvent a la Haye, dans la Chambre du Conseil de Justice de la Cour d'Holande, de Zelande, & de Westvrise.Amsterdam, printed for Nikolaas Verkolje, 1737. Large folio. With 7 engraved plates illustrating 7 paintings by Larisse at the old provincial Court of Justice in the Binnenhof at The Hague, engraved by Pierre Tamjé and Claude Duflos after drawings by Verkolje. 19th-century half roan, marbled boards.

      Timmer, Gerard Lairesse (1942), p. 83, nr. 26; cf. Snoep, "Gerard Lairesse als plafond-en kamerschilder", in: Bulletin van het Rijksmuseum, Vol. 18 (1970), Nr. 4, pp. 198-209. First and only edition of a set of plates illustrating seven paintings by Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711) in the council room of the former Court of Justice of Holland, Zeeland and West Friesland (now called the Lairesse room) in the Binnenhof in The Hague. The Court commissioned the paintings in 1684 and they were completed by 1688. They depict Aeneas carrying his father Anchises, an allegorical figure of Justice and five scenes from ancient Roman history, each representing a different virtue: Pompei (prudence), Scipio (moderation), Horatius Cocles (courage), Scipio again (steadfastness) and Papyrius (clemency). The printed image of each plate measures about 40 x 28 cm. In three cases the painting fills the plate; the other four paintings, being more or less square (about 23 x 23 cm to 29 x 29 cm in the plates), are depicted within the architectural context. Binding used. A very good copy.

        Romans nouveaux. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      S.n. (Journal des débats) 1942 - - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1942), 13,5x21,5cm & 4 pages in-4, 4 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l&#39 auteur de 2 pages et demie in-4 publiée dans le numéro du 23 Décembre 1942 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l&#39 écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire publiée à l&#39 occasion de la parution de plusieurs nouveaux romans dont "Le jour se lève" de Marius Grout. On joint le tapuscrit complet. Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l&#39 obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu&#39 il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L&#39 Entretien infini" et "L&#39 Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d&#39 une acuité d&#39 analyse dépassant largement l&#39 actualité littéraire qui en motive l&#39 écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d&#39 une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d&#39 une pensée exercée "au nom de l&#39 autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au coeur même d&#39 un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l&#39 écho de l&#39 impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (.) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d&#39 une oeuvre qui commence (.) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d&#39 un critique qui a transformé l&#39 occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d&#39 une grande rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Song of The Cotton Picker. With photos by Carl Julien

      Clinton, South Carolina: Jacob's Press. 1942, 39. First edition. 8vo. Publisher's red rexine, leather effect cloth with onlay photgraphic title label to front board. Bright and sharp, small square of fading to head of spine. In a very good dustwrapper, frayed and chipped to head of spine, some light edgewear elsewhere, closed tears to upper front corner and rear panel, a couple of small splash marks, eseentially strong, clean and respectable. The contents are a collection of poems and contemporary photographs written in a manner guaranteed to make most people's heads hurt. The introduction by Archibald Rutledge contains such insightful gems as "It has validity, charm and all the whimsical naivete of the Negro himself." Awesome. The various poems, apparently highly thought of at the time, have titles like "Whar De Massa?" and "Whar Do Mose Lib?" presumably there was no other way at the time of capturing the "meaning and feeling of the South Carolina Negro", which suggests to me that people maybe weren't trying hard enough. Inscribed by the author to the front flyleaf; "With every good wish to Marjorie Cawte - Madeline Horres Hantske Aug 23, 1954". Interesting, in its historical context, and scarce in dustwrapper.

      [Sagan, Poland], 1942 - 1945 Stalag Luft III POW camp was situated in Sagan, 100 miles southeast of Berlin, now called Zagan, in Upper Silesia, Poland. All the prisoners of war were flying officers of the British Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm and American U.S. Army Air Force. The first camp compound opened in March 1942, followed by other compounds in 1943 and 1944. It held about 10,000 officers. Stalag Luft III was immortalized in the 1963 motion picture, ?The Great Escape,? starring Steve McQueen. On the night of March 24-25, 1944, 76 of the 600 prisoners involved in the plan escaped through tunnels they had dug before German guards spotted them. The escape from the camp was the single greatest freedom attempt by POWs in World War II. Of the 76 who tried to escape, 50 were recaptured and executed by the Gestapo on Hitler?s orders, three successfully escaped, and the rest were returned to Stalag Luft III.(1) Rare empty Red Cross box that had contained food and soap for the POWs at Stalag Luft III.

        Autograph Letter Signed, on 12mo lined note paper, Magdalen College, Oxford, Oct. 10, 1942

      - Written to Mr. Kirkby, Lewis explains that his R. A. F. commitments cause him to decline future invitations.".I shall then be in the last (and most hectic) week of term. and even in the vacation, I am so heavily committed to the R. A. F. that I can do little else. With much regret." He signs, "C. S. Lewis." Lewis' brief letter alludes to his tour of R.A.F. bases to give talks on Christianity, an outgrowth of his popular BBC broadcasts between 1941-1944. These broadcasts formed the basis for his book, "Mere Christianity." The BBC radio occurred in four series, beginning August 6, 1941 and ending April 4, 1944,and prior to the broadcasts, his work with the RAF began on April 9, 1941. The Screwtape Letters" (1942) first appeared in book form in February, of the year of this letter, 1942.

        Two Autograph Letters Signed, one in English and Yiddish, 4pp on folded 8vo sheet, June 7, 1942; and one in Yiddish, 4pp on one large 8vo sheet, Great Neck, NY, March 31, 1943

      In both war-time letters to his cousin, Charles Getz, Weber writes mostly of support for Russia against the Nazis but he also discusses his art. In the letter dated 1942, Weber offers Charles congratulations on his marriage. Weber comments on his cousin no longer being lonely. "One can read the greatest books... but reading is not living. Life without human (and (social) [sic] contact is pretty barren." Weber continues by commenting on an "excellent appreciation of my work in the &#39;Morning Freiheit&#39; by Dr. Kloomok... his is one of the best Jewish writers...." Dr. Isaac Kloomok was a scholar who wrote about Jewish artists, including Weber and Marc Chagall. Weber writes of current events. "At the moment the news from Russia is not so very good, and you know how grieved I am, but in the end the Nazi bastards will be conquered and sent to hell for all time!...." He continues in English until the last paragraph which he writes in Yiddish. "I would like to apologize for not writing in Yiddish, it takes too long…I was in Chicago but after my lecture in the museum m whole time was take up by receptions…." He signs, "Max - Motel," and continues in an end not in English. "They are talking about a second front while Hitler has opened four fronts. How long can Soviet Russia keep on fighting 90% of this war?" In the second letter written almost a year later and fully in Yiddish Weber apologizes for not writing for some time saying that he had to prepare for two exhibitions, "one in New York [possibly the 1942 Paul Rosenberg & Co. gallery exhibition], and the other, for The Carnegie Institute, museum of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania [the Carnegie Institute exhibition took place in 1943]." He says that the other reason for not writing was because he was in a bad mood as his son "Meinard was drafted on the 29th January; he had to interrupt his studies in college." Weber then opens up to his cousin about how he feels, specifically about current world problems. "I got used to the thought of the terrible war lead by the &#39;Capitalist locust&#39;... You are... a more decent human being than the millions of professional &#39;Intellectuals&#39;. A person can be very learned, and despite his knowledge be a moron, with lack of insight about himself, who becomes an enemy of himself and an enemy of other people... my heart aches about the fact we witness that after the accomplishment of the Soviet Union to rescue the world from the Nazi snake, she is being criticized and made fun of by her own allies... Now... a trial of two labor leaders in Poland. It&#39;s unbelievable how the God of the capitalists provides them with material, accusing them the same way as the previous traitors did at the last trial." He continues in this vein, upset at the "capitalists" and closes by saying that his son, Meinard, is a colonel in the Chemical Impregnating Division of the army. He signs, "Max - Mordecai.

        Gästebuch begonnen am 26. Januar 1942 nach genau siebenjährigem Ehekrieg und -frieden während des ersten Fliegeralarms 1942 in Leipzig-L1, Hauptmannstraße 4 II, von Elfriede Kellner geb. Schinze und Otto Kellner. - [Handgeschriebenes Gästebuch einer Leipziger Familie aus den Jahren 1942 bis 1989]. -

      (Leipzig 1942-1989),. 64, 24 Seiten, krude Fadenheftung in einem mehrfarbigen Basteinband mit Kordelbindung, 27 x 22 cm. Das Gästebuch der Leipziger Akademiker- und Künstlerfamilie Kellner enthält zahlreiche Einträge aus den Jahren 1942 bis 1989. Dr. Otto Kellner, geboren am 19. April 1899 war Kunsthistoriker und Schriftsteller; in seinem Haus trafen sich zahlreiche Künstler und Schriftsteller - darunter auffallend viele Porzellanmaler. Zu den Gästen des Hauses zählten der Künstler und Bildhauer Kurt Feustel ("Einst Maler u. Bildhauer - jetzt Kammerbulle u. Bauer-Obergefreiter" - 24.5.1942), der Künstler und Schriftsteller Johannes Behrbohm (1861-1956 - von ihm stammt eine montierte und signierte Tuschezeichnung - ein Porträt Otto Kellners - und ein signiertes 17zeiliges Gedicht), der Schriftsteller Carl Felix von Schlichtegroll (1862-1946), Artur Schmidt-Alken (Schrifttsteller und Ãœbersetzer), der Schriftsteller Heinz Scheibenpflug, der Maler Hans-Joachim Krantz, etc. - Etwa 30 Seiten stammen aus der Kriegszeit. Aus den Jahren 1948 und 1949 liegen keine Einträge vor, dann setzt das Gästebuch wieder ein - jetzt mit neuer Heimat in Hamburg. In den 80er Jahren werden die Einträge sehr spärlich (1985 feiern Otto und Elfriede Kellner goldene Hochzeit; fünf Jahre später erfolgten die letzten Einträge zum 90. Geburtstag Otto Kellners). Viele der Einträge bestehen aus teils umfangreichen Texten, teils auch mit Zeichnungen versehen. --- Beigebunden nach Art eines Vexierbuchs befindet sich ein älteres Gästebuch, das offensichtlich nur als Papierlager für das Gästebuch der Familie Kellner diente. Es wurde 1926 von den Norwegern Jack Bjerknes (Jacob Aall Bonnevie Bjerknes, 1897-1975) und Kristian Bjerknes (1901-1981 - der Bruder von Jacob) im Oktober 1926 im norwegischen Bergen angelegt und reicht bis in den März 1931. Das 24seitige Gästebuch enthält zahlreiche Einträge von Reisenden aus aller Welt (Japan, Indien, Frankreich, England, Deutschland...), darunter zahlreiche Meteorologen und Geowissenschaftler. Es finden sich u.a. die Namen von Honoria Bjerknes (1864-1928), Theodor Hesselberg (Meteorologe, 1885-1966), Knut Knutzen, Hurd C. Willett (Meteorologe), Babo Nath Baneiji (Geophysiker), Georges Bronner, Boris Belonoschkin, etc. --- Der Einband, vor allem im Bereich der Vorsätze ramponiert, die Bindung etwas gelockert. Innen teils etwas fleckig, teils etwas angerändert. Sonst und insgesamt jedoch gutes, attraktives Exemplar..
