        Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More than Six Thousand Men and Women have Recovered from Alcoholism (Hardcover)

      New York: Works Publishing, 1942. First Edition. Third printing. The First Edition was published in 1939, but the book didn't achieve its phenomenal popularity until a few years later, with the second printing coming in 1942, the third the following year, and a 12th printing by the end of the decade.& & The front pastedown, recto and verso of the front endpaper have been completely inscribed with contemporary owner names, presumably members of the original owner's AA group (making this a somewhat ironic copy).& & Very Good plus in the variant light blue cloth lacking dust jacket. Boards are lightly rubbed, with slight bumping to the tips, and light fray at the heel with an accompanying bump to the text block. An early edition of the founding title for one of the twentieth century's most important social movements, one whose influence and value are inestimable.

        SONGS FROM "THIS IS THE ARMY

      n.p. [New York], 1942. First Edition. Hardcover. Light rubbing to edges and spine with slight loss at the tips. Despite the light wear, Near Fine with a superb inscription. Small folio (9" x 12") bound in full "army khaki" flexible leather with gilt lettering on the front cover. Includes sheet music for 19 of Berlin's songs, including "This Is the Army, Mr. Jones" and "Oh! How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning" from the Broadway musical that later toured the nation and the world and was made into a movie starring Ronald Reagan with much of the proceeds from all of its various guises donated to the U.S. Army. At the time of the original production, the U.S. Armed Forces were segregated; as a result of Berlin's insistence, the unit performing THIS IS THE ARMY became the only integrated company in uniform. Which leads to an interesting connection with the SIGNED INSCRIPTION by the great composer in this volume: "To Roy Lord/with gratitude/for helping to make/'This is the Army'/what it was in/the U.K./Irving Berlin." General Roy[al] Lord was the chief of staff to General John C. H. Lee, nicknamed "Jesus Christ Himself" for his arrogance. Lee had a number of roles in World War II including commander of the supply services for the U.S. Army in the European Theater and General Eisenhower's deputy commander. It was at Lee's suggestion that Black troops were allowed to serve in combat for the first time in the war in the Battle of the Bulge after 50,000 soldiers were killed or wounded in the first week of action. He received an Honor Roll of Race Relations from the New York Public Library's Schomberg Collection of Negro Literature for this action.

All volumes are in the publishers different coloured dustwrappers.The seventh volume (Secret session speeches) has some minor foxing to the front panel of the wrapper and a closed tear to the rear and a couple of volumes have minor chipping to the top and bottom of the spines but overall the wrappers are, on the whole, in very good condition. First volume wrapper is the correct 12th edition wrapper but has been supplied from another copy and is very good but with some uniform fading of the red on the spine. The other volumes are all in original dustwrappers and have some minor rubbing and very small areas of chipping to extremities but overall this is a very good, bright, tidy set of this important collection. A very good complete set of Churchill's War Speeches with the bonus of being signed in volume one. Any copies of Into Battle signed by Churchill are surprisingly difficult to find, with first edition copies being rarest of all.:

        The World Crisis 1911-1918, INSCRIBED and dated by Churchill on 10 Downing Street stationary

      This jacketed first abridged and revised Macmillan edition of The World Crisis is inscribed by Churchill on Prime Minister stationary and dated "Easter 1942". Early 1942 was a low point of the war, full of challenges, compromises, and disappointments, both military and political, across the globe for the British. Easter weekend 1942 saw terrible losses of aircraft, ships, and men to the Japanese, with the day after Easter seeing Japanese forces land in the Solomon Islands and bombing British India for the first time. For obvious reasons, inscribed books from this time are scarce. This book was almost certainly a gift for someone Churchill knew personally. The stationary bearing the inscription is affixed to the front pastedown. The stationary is printed with the Prime Minister's seal on the upper right and "10 Downing Street, Whitehall." on the upper left. The inscription is typed "Inscribed for Mr. J.W.R. Hill by" with Churchill's signature in black ink appearing directly below. Below Churchill's signature is typed "Easter 1942". We are informed that J.R.W. Hill was Joseph William Roland Hill (1905-1977), who apparently served as film projectionist for Churchill at Chequers, the Prime Minister's country residence, which Churchill frequented during the war, and where Churchill enjoyed films in the "Long Gallery". Churchill was at Chequers in late March and early April 1942. We have no definitive evidence of Mr. Hill's presence at Chequers at that time. Nonetheless, being able to definitively place Churchill at Chequers at the time is strong corroboration. Mr. Hill's association with Churchill is further corroborated by another book inscribed to him by Churchill dated "Christmas 1942". Moreover, the inscription stands on its own merits as an outstanding, dated wartime inscription on official stationary. In early 1942, the setbacks faced by Churchill during the first world war when he served in the War Cabinet and on the Front must have been on his mind, as he now faced the Second World War from the position of high command and ultimate responsibility. This abridged and revised volume of The World Crisis is not simply an abridgement, but an important edition in its own right; Churchill made significant revisions and added a new introduction and an entire new chapter on the Battle of the Marne. Macmillan acquired the rights to several Churchill books after Thornton Butterworth went under in 1940. Thus this edition - the first printing of the Macmillan edition produced using the original Thornton Butterworth first edition plates. We are pleased that the condition of this book befits the inscription it bears. This copy is in fine condition in a very good+ dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are likewise bright and clean with no spotting and no inscriptions apart from that of the author. Even the text block edges remain clean. The dust jacket is unclipped and highly complete, with just fractional losses at the corners and spine ends. The spine is lightly soiled, but the red title lettering remains vivid and unfaded. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.14.a, Woods/ICS A31(bd.1), Langworth p.116.

Robbins, Jr. Heller & Magee 368; Howes W-312. Tiny nick to front cover, a touch of rubbing to joints and extremities, otherwise an extremely fine copy, the binding scarcely worn, and pristine internally. California historian Carl Wheat (1893-1966) compiled this definitive annotated bibliography of Gold Rush maps illustrated with facsimiles of 27 of the maps described. In addition to being a key work on California cartography, this is one of the finest productions of the Grabhorn Press, especially in the luxurious presentation edition. This special presentation copy, printed on smooth handmade paper in Janson linotype, was presented to type designer, author, teacher, and Linotype president Harry L. Gage (1887-1982). Afterwards, it was owned by prominent California collector Irving W. Robbins, Jr., whose collection had two main focuses: fine press books and Western Americana, obviously combined in this item. Robbins served as honorary curator of rare books and manuscripts at Stanford, and donated his Ashendene collection to the university library. He received the prestigious Warren R. Howell Award for distinguished service and exceptional contributions to the development of libraries and special collections at Stanford in 1986. ABPC lists just two presentation copies at auction since 1975, the last selling in 1994 for a hammer price of $3,250.

        ORIGINAL ART - GOUACHE PAINTING OF YOUNG GIRLS SINGING By Leo Politi

      Signed and dated 1942. This is a gouache painting by Leo Politi, artist, author, and illustrator, known for his stories in writing and depictions in art of the young children and their parents and culture in the neighborhoods of Los Angeles. This painting is of three young girls singing. The girl in the center is holding a (song? ) book and the eyes of all three are lowered or closed as if following from the book or singing from memory. They all have long sleeve blouses and skirts and are wearing sandals. Completed in reds and neutrals - no background scene. The medium to deep reds and neutrals are vibrant and intense. Signed and dated 1942 in the upper right corner. This painting was previously framed and there is what appears to be a burn mark at what was, most likely, the frame opening which is 10 7/8" high x 9 7/8" wide. There is a pencil border drawn beyond that at 11 " high x 10 1/8" wide. The outside dimensions of the paper are 15 " high x 11 7/8" wide. This print has been professionally top hinged and matted using archival materials to fit an 18' x 14' frame (frame not included) . No other glue was used in matting, however, there are remnants of glue at the edges of the watercolor paper, most likely from the original old framing job. There may have been an original wash for the background of a faint, light green, which has turned a rich, solid beige which is very complimentary to the colors in the painting. The image is modest and charming. There is a half circle indent in the paper near the foot of the girl on the right. The print is clean and without soil or stains. The matboard has been precisely cut, workmanship is professionally fine, the camera work is imperfect. ; .
