        [Four Quartets, comprising] East Coker; Burnt Norton; The Dry Salvages; Little Gidding

      London: Faber & Faber [through 1942], 1940. First Impressions. Staple bound Wraps. Four uniform first impressions of the separate appearances in pamphlet form of Eliot's wartime masterpiece. East Coker: 16pp; yellow paper wrappers printed in black (Near Fine, barring the usual toning) over white card covers, stapled. Light foxing throughout, the final 8pp uncut [Gallup A36c]. Burnt Norton: 16pp; aquamarine paper wrappers printed in black folded over stiff white covers; stapled. Fine, with just a hint of fading along the spine crease. [Gallup [A37]. The Dry Salvages: 16pp; pale blue paper wrappers printed in black folded over stiff cream (Gallup's first state) paper without the Adelphi watermark. Very Good or better, the wraps faded and lightly foxed, with a stain on the inner flap fold, but the pages bright and unmarked, except for an owner's inscription in a neat hand on the half-title [Gallup A39]. Little Gidding: 16pp; stiff mauve wrappers printed in black, stapled (Gallup's second state). Near Fine or better with traces of foxing to the back panel, internally bright and fresh [Gallup A42]. First Faber printing of the first title (East Coker first appeared in two forms associated with its publication in The New English Weekly.), first separate edition of the second title (first published in Collected Poems, 1936), and first editions of the latter two titles. East Coker is the village in Somerset from which Eliot's ancestors departed for the New World in 1669; Burnt Norton refers to the Gloucestershire manor house erected on the foundation of a house that burned to the ground in 17th century; The Dry Salvages is a group of rocks off Cape Ann, and so harks to the poet's New England roots, and Little Gidding was the manor in Huntingdonshire that was the destination of poets' pilgrimages as the site where Nicholas Ferrar founded an Anglican religious community in the mid-17th century.

        Greece Fights On

      Washington, D.C.: Greek Office of Information, 1942. First Edition. Lithographed poster in four colors, 81cm x 61cm (ca 32" x 24"). Signed in plate, lower right, dated 1942. Original fold-lines; repaired marginal tears, Grade B. Archivally backed on linen.& & Known primarily for his commercial work, this is one of a handful of political graphics by the pioneering American-born designer E. Mcknight Kauffer (1890-1954); it is one of two designs created by Kauffer to support the Greek Resistance movement during World War Two. Produced shortly after his repatriation to the United States (after a 25-year career in England), this poster exemplifies Kauffer's bold use of symbolic, modernist design with minimal imposition of text - an aesthetic which played less successfully in the United States than it had in England.

        ARCHIVE consisting of 27 TYPED LETTERS SIGNED (TLSs) to novelist Alan Kapelner

      Letters. Near Fine. A sizable group of 27 TYPED LETTERS SIGNED (TLSs) dating from 1942 to 1946 to novelist Alan Kapelner, who died in 1990, one of the last discoveries of famous Scribner's editor Maxwell Perkins. Perkins, who died in 1947, worked on the first novels of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Thomas Wolfe. Kapelner published two novels, LONELY BOY BLUES in 1944, which earned acclaim for its evocation of New York City and which is on several neglected books lists, and ALL THE NAKED HEROES in 1960. Braziller, the publisher of the latter book, touted its author as Maxwell Perkins's last discovery. Nearly all of the letters here are single page on Charles Scribner's Sons stationery and SIGNED in full. The correspondence begins with requests to see Kapelner's manuscript [LONELY BOY BLUES] as well as politely declining the author's requests for a job at Scribner's. Some selections: "I should never think of making a decision on a book of such ability without reading it carefully,- and what's more, I am certain that I shall personally enjoy it greatly." "Thomas Wolfe used to want me to go out and beat up critics--who often were bigger men than I-- but I never could see that any particular good could come of it." Several of the letters deal with specific advice about LONELY BOY BLUES, tentatively titled IN AT THE KILL. Wonderful archive from arguably the most important editor of the twentieth century whose advice resulted in often substantial changes in the final versions of THE GREAT GATSBY, LOOK HOMEWARD ANGEL, THE YEARLING, and FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, among others. Hemingway dedicated THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA to Perkins. FROM WIKIPEDIA: Unlike most editors, he actively sought out promising new artists; he made his first big find in 1919 when he signed F. Scott Fitzgerald. This was no easy task, for no one at Scribner's except Perkins had liked The Romantic Egotist, the working title of Fitzgerald's first novel, and it was rejected. Even so, Perkins worked with Fitzgerald to revise the manuscript and then lobbied it through the house until he wore down his colleagues' resistance. Its publication as This Side of Paradise (1920) marked the arrival of a new literary generation that would always be associated with Perkins. Fitzgerald's profligacy and alcoholism strained his relationship with Perkins. Nonetheless, Perkins remained Fitzgerald's friend to the end of Fitzgerald's short life, in addition to his editorial relationship with the author, particularly evidenced in The Great Gatsby (1925), his masterpiece, which benefited substantially from Perkins' criticism. It was through Fitzgerald that Perkins met Ernest Hemingway, publishing his first major novel, The Sun Also Rises, in 1926. A daring book for the times, Perkins fought for it over objections to Hemingway's profanity raised by traditionalists in the firm. The commercial success of Hemingway's next novel, A Farewell to Arms (1929), which rose to number one on the best-seller list, put an end to questions about Perkins' editorial judgment. The greatest professional challenge Perkins ever faced was posed by Thomas Wolfe, whose talent was matched only by his lack of artistic self-discipline. Unlike most writers, who are often blocked, words poured out of Wolfe. A blessing in some ways, this was a curse too, as Wolfe was greatly attached to each sentence he wrote. After a tremendous struggle, Perkins induced Wolfe to cut 90,000 words from his first novel, Look Homeward, Angel (1929). His next, Of Time and the River (1935), was the result of a two-year battle during which Wolfe kept writing more and more pages in the face of an ultimately victorious effort by Perkins to hold the line on size. Grateful to Perkins at first for discovering him and helping him realize his potential, Wolfe later came to resent the popular perception that he owed his success to his editor. Wolfe left Scribner's after numerous fights with Perkins. Despite this, Perkins served as Wolfe's literary executor after his early death in 1938 and was considered by Wolfe to be his closest friend. Although his reputation as an editor is most closely linked to these three, Perkins worked with many other writers. He was the first to publish J. P. Marquand and Erskine Caldwell. His advice was responsible for the enormous success of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, whose The Yearling (1938) grew out of suggestions made by Perkins. It became a runaway best-seller and won the Pulitzer Prize. Alan Paton's Cry, the Beloved Country (1946) was another highly successful Perkins find. His next-to-last discovery was James Jones, who approached Perkins in 1945. Perkins persuaded Jones to abandon the novel he was working on at that time and launched him on what would become From Here to Eternity (1951). By this time, Perkins' health was failing and he did not live to see its success, nor that of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea (1952), which was dedicated to his memory. Perkins last discovery was Marguerite Young, who started her mammoth Miss MacIntosh, My Darling in 1947 with his encouragement, signing a contract in 1947 based on her 40 page manuscript. The novel was finally published in 1965.

        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.

        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.

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.

        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.

        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. ; .
