        LOS ANGELES (CARTE/MAP)

      Monterey, CA:: Jo Mora Publications,, 1942.. First printing. Fine condition; colors are striking, fresh and strong. Color pictographic map. Image size 30 1/4" x 22 7/8". Printed on white paper, one of only 2,000 examples printed on this type paper; only a few examples are known to exist today. "This carte, in either variation, is among the rarest ones to find!" - Grandeau/Shorts. This map was dedicated to Charles F. Lummis, a 'buen amigo' of Jo's and a well-known Industriallist from Los Angeles, who foretold of the great Metropolis that LA would become. As shown in the map, the population in 1910 was only 50,000 people. Jo also included the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, who, like Jo, loved to draw animal figures with human clothes and traits." (Jon Gilmore) Only 2,000 copies were printed thus this image is considered to be one of the more scarce Jo Mora cartes. As with all his cartes, this one is packed with historical information and details, creatively and colorfully illustrated. (Grandeau & Shorts Cartes 10b; Gilmore M16)

        The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, Secret Session Speeches: full set of Australian editions of Churchill’s war speeches in dust jackets

      Melbourne and Sydney: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1942. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner. But more than anything else, it was Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War that made him a preeminent historical figure. Here is a full set of first Australian editions of Churchil's war speeches - the soaring and defiant oratory that sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world during the greatest war the world has ever known. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." In Australia, Churchill's war speeches were published in six individual volumes between 1942 and 1946. Collectors should note that there are only six volumes (rather than the seven published in Britain and the U.S.) because there was no Australian issue of Into Battle. Here is a full jacketed set of all six Australian editions. Condition ranges from very good to truly fine. Far more scarce than the British and U.S. editions and rarely seen jacketed in this condition. The bindings are all clean, bright, and tight. All dust jackets are bright and unclipped with only minor wear and losses. Spine presentation of all volumes is excellent with the exception of Secret Session Speeches, which is so scarce that fine jacketed examples are virtually unobtainable. A high point of the set is The Unrelenting Struggle, which is an outstanding fine copy with crisp white pages in a stunning clean and bright dust jacket. It is the finest example we have seen. It is also an unusual binding variant, being bound in very dark, nearly black cloth with a wavy pattern over light vertical scoring. Previous owner markings are limited to an ink stamp in Unrelenting Struggle and a Christmas inscription dated 1946 in Secret Session Speeches. The balance of the volumes bear no inscriptions. Spotting is limited and light, being confined to the text block edges of only two volumes. This is rare, collector-worthy set in unusually good condition. All six dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: A172.4, A183.4, A194.4.b, A214.4, A223.4, A227.4.b; Woods/ICS A89(d), A94(d), A101(d), A107(d), A112(d), A114(d); Langworth pages 215, 221, 225, 230, 236, 252

        To Maintain the Entente: Speeches of Winston Churchill

      New Delhi, India: Services Francais d'Information, 1942. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. This striking and rare Churchill speech pamphlet was published in India during the Second World War. There were two editions, one in English and one bilingual in both French and English. Both editions are quite elusive. This is the English language edition. The pamphlet is bound in thin card wraps. The front cover bears double vertical stripes in blue and red, within which is a cross of Lorraine (adopted as a wartime symbol of the French Resistance) below which is a quote about Churchill's importance to the Franco-British Entente and a quote by Churchill. The rear cover bears the same vertical stripes in blue and red as well as crossed French and British Flags and olive branches. The pamphlet is 30 pages in length, measures 8.375 x 5.625 inches, and is wire stitched. Included are excerpts of varying lengths from Churchill's addresses or speeches of: 9 May and 5 October 1938, 19 May and 3 September 1939; 19 May, 17 June (complete broadcast), 18 June, 25 June, 4 July, 14 July, 20 August, 8 October, and 21 October 1940; 9 April, 14 July (entire message to General de Gaulle), 15 July, 9 September, 10 November, and 30 December 1941; 10 May (broadcast) , 10 November, and 29 November (broadcast) 1942. The contents include two black and white illustrations, including a photo of Churchill. The cover versos each bear a list - in French - of wartime brochures offered by the publisher, who appear to have issued material of interest to French forces, citizens, and speakers, mainly in French, about the progress of the war. Condition is near-fine given the age, fragility, and Indian origin of the pamphlet. The covers are firmly attached and entirely intact with no tears or losses. Trivial wear at extremities, mild toning, and very light soiling are the only exterior flaws. The original single binding staple remains tight with only light surface corrosion. Interestingly and testifying to the pamphlet's wartime Indian origin, the lower rear cover bears Indian postal stamps in black ink, one circular and no longer quite distinguishable, the second square and reading in three lines: "D.L.O / BOMBAY / 16 OCT. 44". The contents remain clean and bright with no spotting or previous ownership marks. The pamphlet is protected in a clear, removable, archival quality sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A176.1, unknown to Woods.

        Men At War, INSCRIBED BY WINSTON S. CHURCHILL

      New York: Edited with an introduction by Ernest Hemingway, Crown Publishers, 1942. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. INSCRIBED BY WINSTON S. CHURCHILL AND DATED 1949 IN HIS HAND on the half title. First edition, later printing. This is the only copy we have ever seen or heard of inscribed by Churchill, whose contribution to the volume, "The Cavalry Charge at Omdurman", appears at p. 813. The inscription is an excellent example. It reads "Winston S. Churchill" with "1949" appearing below written in black ink. The ink shows just a bit of age-spreading and is visible on the reverse of the thin paper. Consistent with Churchill's deteriorating health in 1949, there is just a hint of shakiness to the signature. The condition of the book itself is very good in a very good dust jacket. As with a first edition, the top edge is stained yellow and the $3.00 price is present on the dust jacket front flap. However, the words "First Edition" do not appear on the dj flap and there is no "A" on the copyright page. The black boards and spine are clean with bright gilt and only a trivial hint of shelfwear and tiny bumps to both corners of the rear board. The contents are bright and tight with no internal spotting. There is transfer browning to the pastedown and endpapers and an inked owners name dated "Christmas, 1942" on the ffep (confirming that this is an early printing given that the first printing was published 22 October 1942). The yellow-stained top edge retains bright color with very light soiling. The fore and bottom edges of the text block show very light spotting. The black and white dust jacket is clean and unclipped, but shows some edgewear, most notably wrinkling to .125 inch at both the head and tail of the spine and at the corners of the front flap fold. A truly rare prize inscribed thus. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B81.1, Hannemann A19.

        An Address Delivered Before Members of the Congress December 26, 1941, the copy of a contemporary member of Congress

      Stamford Connecticut: The Overbrook Press, 1942. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Here is a beautiful limited edition of Churchill's famous address to Congress only weeks after Pearl Harbor, formerly owned by a contemporary U.S. Congressman. In the days after the Japanese attack, the United States formally entered the Second World War, marking the end of Britain's solitary stand against Hitler's Germany, which it had sustained since the fall of France. Churchill immediately decided to travel to the United States, and on the 12th of December 1941 he boarded the battleship Duke of York and began the 10-day trip across the Atlantic - a perilous journey at a time when German U-Boats plagued the North Atlantic. Churchill addressed the U.S. Congress on the 26th and the Canadian Parliament on the 30th. Churchill's speech to Congress was sober, resolved, and eloquently defiant, but of course also featured the sparkle of Churchillian wit, which was irrepressible even in the dark hours of the war: "I cannot help reflecting that if my father had been American and my mother British, instead of the other way around, I might have got here on my own." His speech was also an important personal introduction to the elected leaders he needed to embrace and sustain the alliance so vital to his nation. This is one of 1,000 copies printed and has interesting provenance, having belonged to a U.S. Congressman serving at the time of Churchill's speech. The front pastedown bears the inked signature of "Karl Stefan, MC". Stefan (1884-1951) served as a Member of Congress from Nebraska for nearly 17 years, from January 1935 until his death in October 1951 - the same month that Churchill began his second and final premiership. Condition of this copy is near-fine. The maroon cloth binding is tight, clean, and square, with sharp corners and minor bumps to the spine ends. The fragile paper title label is intact, with only fractional nicks at the perimeter. The contents are clean with no spotting and no markings other than the ownership signature on the front pastedown. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A163.7, Woods A84(c)

      Originalteckning till nothäftesomslag. Svart tusch. Monogramsignerad. 43 × 32,5 cm. Proveniens: Georg och Hanna Pauli, utställd 1942. Se Förteckning över Georg och Hanna Paulis efterlämnade samling av egna och andra konstnärers verk, Svensk-Franska konstgalleriet 19-20 mars 1942, Stockholm 1942, s. 28 (kat. nr 275). I arv i familjen Hirsch till 2011. Litteratur: Den tryckta omslagsbilden avbildas på s. 188 i Nils Forsgren, Ständigt denne Andrén (2002). Möjligen utförd för den utgåva från Hirschs förlag som utannonserades i pressen 1887. Sångens refräng går: "Vid böljors gång så klingar deras sång: Fiskarflicka lilla".. Vicke Andrén var en mångsidig konstnär verksam både som målare, reportageillustratör och skämttecknare. Han har utfört takmålningar i bland annat Kungliga Operan, Södra teatern, Oscarsteatern, Gustaf Vasa kyrka och van der Nootska palatset, dekorationer på Café Opera och andra krogar, reportageteckningar i Ny Illustrerad Tidning och Idun och skämtteckningar i Puck, Kasper och Strix. Som tecknare var Andrén känd för att ge kvinnor ovanligt stort utrymme i sina bilder, inte sällan fullmogna kvinnor i sinnliga scener, och han har som konstnär beskrivits såsom »av epikureisk läggning» (K. A. Arvidsson). Den karakteristiken fäster kanske inte vid denna relativt oskyldiga framställning, som däremot uppvisar den virtuosa elegans som är så typisk för Andrén

        The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, Secret Session Speeches: full set of Australian editions of Churchill’s war speeches in dust jackets
