        De complete clandestiene productie van deze prachtige serie bibliofiele werken, in het geheim gedrukt in een klein aantal exemplaren onder de bezetting door de Nazi's. (22 titels).

      'De naam van de pers was een sardonische verwijzing naar het maximale gewicht van papier voor onofficieel drukwerk, dat door de bezetter was toegestaan' (Purvis). Het fonds van de Vijf Ponden Pers, gesticht door A.A. Balkema, W. Hellinga en J. van Krimpen in 1942, vormt een verzameling van zeer diverse, verfijnd ontworpen boeken, sommige heel groot, andere heel klein. De typografie is vaak van J. van Krimpen, soms van Dick Elffers, Susanne Heynemann, S.H. de Roos en anderen. Volgens H.N. Werkman in een brief aan August Henkels waren de boeken van de Vijf Ponden Pers bijna té mooi: 'Het was me of ik de producten van lettergieterijen in handen had. Wat is dat allemaal onberispelijk van uitvoering en wat is dat van uiterlijk en innerlijk weergaloos select. Je slaat je handen van verbazing ineen als je zooiets ziet in deze tijd. In déze tijd waarin je haast geen vel goed papier machtig kunt worden'.De staat is in het algemeen prima.l 1. Charles BAUDELAIRE Le vin. Cinq poëmes choisis dans Les Fleurs du Mal.

        WWII PROPAGANDA: [ST’?K. SATIRI?ESKIJ SBORNIK. K XXIV GODOVSHCHINE PKKA- / DAGGER. SATIRICAL MAGAZINE. AT THE 24TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE RED ARMY].

      4°, 16 pp. full page illustrations printed in red, green and black, stapled (Very Good, wrappers slightly dusty, soft folds in margins). - Sukhumi, Abkhazia (Georgia): February 1942. A magnificent rare magazine with anti-Nazi caricatures by Abkhazian artists, printed in red, green, and black, was issued during WWII in Sukhumi. - This highly decorative satirical magazine with full size caricatures, printed in green, black and red only, was published in 1942, the year of the Battle of Caucasus and just before the Battle of Stalingrad. The Russian army, here always marked with red colour, is shown overpowering, tricking and beating up somehow ridiculous looking Germans. This is a superb example of WWII Russian propaganda and printing in provincial centers. According to the imprint on p. 2 the magazine was printed in 3000 examples. We could not trace any other examples of the magazines on the market nor in institutions worldwide.

        The Screwtape Letters

      The First UK Printing published by Geoffrey Bles in 1942. The Book is in near Fine condition having been rebound in full black morocco with five raised bands, gilt titling and decoration. Top edge gilt with new marbled end-papers. Very light toning and the occasional spotting to the text block. Free from inscriptions. The original book spine with the paper title label has been pasted to one of the rear end-papers. The Screwtape Letters is a Christian apologetic novel by C. S. Lewis which is written in a satirical, epistolary style and while it is fictional in format, the plot and characters are used to address Christian theological issues, primarily those to do with temptation and resistance to it. The story takes the form of a series of letters from a senior Demon Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood, a Junior Tempter. The uncle's mentorship pertains to the nephew's responsibility in securing the damnation of a British man known only as 'the Patient'. A very attractive rebinding and scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Springtime in the Rockies (Original screenplay for the 1942 film)

      Twentieth Century Fox, Los Angeles 1942 - Revised Final Script for the 1942 film musical, "Springtime in the Rockies," directed by Irving Cummings, based on the screenplay for the 1936 comedy "Second Honeymoon," written for the screen by Walter Bullock, Ken Englund, Jacques Thery, and Philip Wylie and starring Betty Grable, Carmen Miranda, John Payne, Cesar Romero, Edward Everett Horton, and Harry James. Betty Grable's starring debut remains one the greatest Technicolor musicals produced by Fox in the 1940s, making grand use of the "let's move the action from the city to the country" approach, employing Harry James and his orchestra at their peak, and pulling out all the stops on the musical numbers--with Carmen Miranda's version of "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" and the debut of the classic song, "I Had the Craziest Dream" topping things off. Red titled wrappers, stamped REVISED FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 763 and copy No. 47, dated June 11, 1942, and with the holograph file notation "Env. #1443" at the top right corner. Distribution page present, with receipt intact. Title page present, with a date matching the front wrapper. 129 leaves, with 1 retake page paper-clipped to the rear wrapper, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 6/13/42 and 7/20/42.

        Mein Kampf ( signed By Seyss-Inquart )

      NSDAP, Munich 1942 - Black leather spine, cream boards, pp.xxx, 406, 407 - 781 + rear ads leaves. Frontis portrait. Two books in one volume, German text. 1942 743 - 747 auflage dieser Ausgabe, published by the Zentralverlag der NSDAP, Franz Eher Nachf.GmbH, Munich. Interesting copy having been signed by the then Reichs Commissar for The Netherlands, Dr Arthur Seyss-Inquart. This has a wedding presentation page bound into the endpapers, this translates as " The young couple Schultz / Rutz. With best wishes for a happy and blessed marriage on 15 May 1943. The Reichs Commissar for the blessed Dutch Territories. ( signed by ) Dr Arthur Seyss-Inquart. Seyss-Inquart was appointed Reichs Commissar for the Netherlands by Hitler in May 1940 , holding the honorary SS rank of Gruppenfuhrer. As a result of his part in sending prisoners to the concentration camps, amongst other war crimes, he was found guilty and sentenced to death at The Nuremburg War Tribunal. He was hanged on October 16 1946. I have not been able to find any information about the couple ( Schultz and Rutz ). In February 1941 Seyss-Inquart organised a system for giving Dutch girls to German soldiers as brides, changing the law to let him assume parental / guardianship rights over the girls to allow him to override the wishes of her parents if they refused to let her marry the soldier. Perhaps this applies to one such marriage, although as both surnames seem Germanic it is probably not the case. The spine is somewhat rubbed on its seams, spine bands and ends, but the gilt titles and oak leaf remain bright and distinct. The boards are a little marked but otherwise sound. Contents are clean and tight. VG Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED

      Washington D.C., 1942. Fine. HAUNTINGLY ELOQUENT LETTER BY AMERICAN ICON ELEANOR ROOSEVELT ON THE SACRIFICES OF WAR. This letter, typed and signed by revered First Lady and humanitarian Eleanor Roosevelt on White House letterhead and dated April 1, 1942 (World War II), is addressed to Mr. Porter, and reads in full: The White House Washington April 1, 1942 Dear Mr. Porter:     I am glad to know that you have enlisted and my very best wishes go to you into the service.  I am sure that you will gain much from it and our main job right now is to win the war, no matter at what cost.  It means a sacrifice for everybody and, while the plans we make for the future may not materialize, it is well for all of us to concentrate now on the job at hand and gain a victory that will make it possible to live a happy and normal life after this is all over.        Good luck, and I shall be glad to hear from you from time to time.                                         Very sincerely yours,                                        [signed] Eleanor Roosevelt "America's isolation from war ended on December 7, 1941, when Japan staged a surprise attack on American military installations in the Pacific. The most devastating strike came at Pearl Harbor, the Hawaiian naval base where much of the US Pacific Fleet was moored. In a two-hour attack, Japanese warplanes sank or damaged 18 warships and destroyed 164 aircraft. Over 2,400 servicemen and civilians lost their lives [...] In the months after Pearl Harbor, the nation swiftly mobilized its human and material resources for war. The opportunities and sacrifices of wartime would change America in profound, and sometimes unexpected, ways" (The National World War II Museum). And change it did. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt recognized the necessity not only for change, but also for sacrifice. In a radio broadcast the night of the Pearl Harbor attack, she reflected: "In the meantime, we the people are already prepared for action.  For months now the knowledge that something of this kind might happen has been hanging over our heads and yet it seemed impossible to believe, impossible to drop the everyday things of life and feel that there was only one thing which was important - preparation to meet an enemy no matter where he struck [...] We know what we have to face and we know that we are ready to face it…. To the young people of the nation, I must speak a word tonight [...] I have faith in you. I feel as though I was standing upon a rock and that rock is my faith in my fellow citizens" (Eleanor Roosevelt's radio broadcast the evening after the Pearl Harbor attack, December 7, 1941). April 1942 marked a tumultuous time for the United States and for the Roosevelts, as recent intervention in World War II had reaped disastrous results, with Japan continuing its string of military successes in the Pacific Theater.  However, these trying times imbued the First Lady with a sense of duty: "Consequently, Eleanor Roosevelt increased her already daunting pace to one that amazed reporters, admirals, defense workers, and soldiers. Eleanor Roosevelt believed that promoting democracy at home and keeping up people's spirits was a vital part of the war effort. Eleanor Roosevelt did this in many ways. She strongly supported women working outside the home and urged their employment in defense industries... She played a key role in convincing FDR to establish the Fair Employment Practices Commission, which outlawed racial discrimination in industries that received federal contracts, urged equal treatment for blacks in the military, and helped to ensure that black units, such as the Tuskegee Airmen, had the opportunity to engage in combat. Finally, She urged citizens to accept volunteer assignments and tried to make those assignments useful" (George Washington University).   Not only a hero in the United States, Eleanor Roosevelt also made several trips to decimated war zones, including the British Isles and Guadalcanal.  Aptly, she reflected in her syndicated newspaper column "My Day", "if the generation that fights today is to lay the foundations of which a peaceful world can be built, all of us who have seen the war close range must remember what we see and carry a crusading spirit into all of our work." This letter, in addition to being composed in a year of escalating tensions in the Pacific and heightened domestic anxiety, is significant as it reflects the kind of empathetic pragmatism that characterized the groundbreaking and generous wartime work of Eleanor Roosevelt. Washington, D.C.: April 1, 1942.  Quarto, one page.  Signed in ink at the end of the letter.  Usual folds, otherwise in fine condition. A rare and poignant letter by one of America's most cherished first ladies.
