        Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy.

Spine ends and corners bumped, extremities worn, spine lettering faded, hinges cracked but firm, contents evenly browned and a little foxed, a very good copy. First edition, first printing. Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy was Schumpeter's most important and controversial book, a philosophical analysis of economics and history in which he coined the term "creative destruction". Blaug, who calls this his masterpiece, notes that in this work Schumpeter "paradoxically rejected the Marxian diagnosis of the imminent breakdown of capitalism and, at the same time, predicted the almost inevitable arrival of socialism as a result of the betrayal of capitalist values by the intellectuals of the western world" (Great Economists Before Keynes, p. 216).

      Colour off-set printing (Good, some wear along old folds, printed on very fragile paper, some minor chipping and loss to blank margin in upper left), 59.5 x 83.5 cm (23.5 x 33 inches). - [Fascist Spain], July 1942. A fantastic large-format propaganda broadside, or ‘wall newspaper’, made to celebrate the exploits of German General Erwin Rommel, the ‘Desert Fox’, and his Afrikakorps, printed in Fascist Spain in July 1942, before the pivotal showdown at El Alamein had been decided. - This wonderfully designed large-format propaganda broadside, or ‘wall newspaper’, celebrates the Western Desert Campaign (1941-3) of Lieutenant General Erwin Rommel, the ‘Desert Fox’, considered to be by far and way to best World War II German military commander and the only Nazi officer who was internationally esteemed. While ultimately unsuccessful, the exploits of his Afrikakorps in North Africa, often undertaken against numerically superior adversaries, are today the stuff of military legend. The broadside was printed in the Castilian language, as part of a series of pro-Axis propaganda wall newspapers issued in Fascist Spain. A masterpiece of persuasive art, the broadside shows a full length portrait of General Rommel, labelled, ‘El guerrero victorioso, mariscal Rommel, en su automóvil de Campania durante la batalla’ [The victorious warrior, Marshal Rommel, in his campaign vehicle during the battle’], while the silhouette of a palm tree harkens the exotic nature of the Maghreb. To the right are a series of photographs of battle scenes and captions all designed to portray Rommel as lion and his Afrikakorps as all-conquering heroes. No mention is made of the fact that the contest between Rommel and the Allies was largely a hard-fought stalemate; here one gains the impression that the Germans were effortlessly mowing down the opposition. The lower part of the composition features a map of the military theatre extending from Benghazi, Libya over to Alexandria Egypt, marking key battle points, notably the Siege of El Tobruk and the epic showdown at El Alamein. Arrows show the progress of Rommel’s army, for the east to the west. Erwin Rommel’s Western Desert Campaign - The Western Desert Campaign (1941-3) was a German initiative to dominate North Africa and to cut-off and conquer British Egypt. Although it ultimately proved unsuccessful, the Germans gave the Allies a run for their money, and when this poster was printed in July 1942, it looked quite possible that Rommel might break through the last British lines of defence, taking the vital city of Alexandria, upon which the rest of the Egypt would fall like dominos. In the winter of 1941, the British army had successfully beaten back Italian attempts to invade Egypt from their colony of Libya. The Italians were then on the back-foot and feared a successful British invasion of Libya. The German responded by sending a small, but highly trained, army known as the Afrikakorps to Libya with the intention of not only defending Libya, but also attacking British-Allied positions in Egypt. Lieutenant General Erwin Rommel (1891 - 1944) was by far and way the most talented German general, but Adolf Hitler despised and feared him, so decided to banish him to this far-away campaign. The Afrikakorps quickly engaged the far larger British Allied forces, led by Rommel’s arch-nemesis and mutual admirer, General Bernard Montgomery. The Germans pinned the Allies down at the Siege of El Tobruk (April 10 to November 27, 1941), in far western Libya, whereupon the Allies withstood a siege of 241 days, before Rommel moved westwards into Egypt. The Allies tried, on numerous occasion to destroy the Afrikakorps with superior numbers and firepower, but every time Rommel slipped way only to head ever closer to Alexandria. This earned Rommel the nickname, the ‘Desert Fox’. At the beginning of July 1942, Rommel’s forces arrived at El Alamein, Egypt, only a short distance east of Alexandria. There they fought a fierce, nearly month-long battle (July 1-27), which ultimately proved inconclusive. The present broadside was made in the middle of the First Battle of El Alamein, when the outcome was unclear, and when it s

Drau (i. e. Maribor, Slovenia): Bundesführung des Steirischen Heimatbundes 1943. A disturbing, highly confidential Nazi statistical atlas was printed during WWII as a part of a project to Germanize a largely Slavic populated region of South Styria. - This larger detailed atlas shows statistic of the population of South Styria in 1942, in majority populated with Slovenians and Croatians, but at the time under Nazi German occupation. The chats, tables and colour maps give a detailed insight on the population of the region, such as average age, economical and housing situation etc. The text, printed on the back of the title page strictly forbids distribution of contents of this atlas physically or by word of mouth, without a special permission, during the time of the war. South Styria during WWII and Hitler’s ethnical cleansing - To set the ugly scene, following the conclusion of World War I, the traditional Austrian Habsburg duchies of Styria and Carinthia were divided between the new republic of Austria and the nation of Yugoslavia. The line of division was, and remained, highly contentious, as Yugoslavia was awarded Lower (southern) Styria (which had a large German-speaking minority); while Austria retained almost all of Carinthia, even though many of its southern areas were majority ethnic Slovene. Following the German invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941, virtually all of Lower Styria, in addition to some adjacent territories, was annexed to Nazi Germany. Hitler, upon his visit to Maribor (German: Marburg am Drau), the main city of lower Styria, declared that he "wanted to make Styria German again". The Nazis then embarked upon a dastardly design to ‘remove’ the majority of ethnic Slovenes, as well as other non-Germans, from both Lower Styria and Carinthia. In their place, ethnic Germans would be resettled into the region, giving it a German demographic super-majority. Heinrich Himmler, the heinous head of the SS, was charged with devising the basic plan. He decided that all non-Germans who had moved to Lower Styria and Carinthia after 1914 (the start of World War I) should automatically be deported from the region (many people from other parts of Yugoslavia had moved to Lower Styria since then). Additionally, Nazis doctors should examine all ethnically "suspicious" people, and if they did not meet their racial criteria, they should also be deported. Next, all Slovenian and non-German intellectuals and political activists should be removed. This would have the effect of decapitating the local society, removing virtually all of its leadership and, supposedly with it, the possibility for organized resistance. Finally, Himmler would remove most Slovenian farmers, so that their land could be given to German settlers. The only Slovenes and others who would be exempt from deportation would be mine workers (necessary for the Nazi war effort) and collaborators. If followed, this diabolical plan would establish an ethnic German super-majority in the region. Unsurprisingly, Himmler’s plan for Styria and Carinthia was similar in many respects to the ones he had already instigated to ethnically cleanse parts of the Czech Republic and Poland, although the details are unique to this situation. The overarching principles of this horrific programme were devised in Berlin and approved by Hitler on May 25, 1941 in his telegraph no. 344 to Zagreb, however, the mechanisms of its implication were to be decided regionally. On June 4, 1941, a ground of nineteen German and Croatian officials met in the Nazi Office in Zagreb to work out the particulars of ethnically cleansing Lower Styria, Carinthia and parts of Croatia. The first transportation of people from Styria to Serbia started within weeks, but the plan was abruptly slowed down, after Serbia had not had enough facilities for transported inhabitants. Also resistance on the occupied areas of Yugoslavia grew stronger after the first months of the war, which forced German soldiers

Original red cloth, spines and front covers lettered in gilt; pp. viii, 292; xi, 346, highly illustrated with plates, maps and plans, four large maps in rear pockets, cloth a little marked, rear endpapers with light spotting; provenance: volume one neatly inscribed by Professor Kenneth Mason, the director of 17 titles of this Naval Intelligence Division series, bookplate of the Library of the University of Oxford School of Geography inside front cover of volume II. First edition, association copy. B. R. 506 and 506 A. Geographical Handbook Series. - Probably one of the best-researched set of books on the North African country. 'A series of intelligence handbooks produced during the First World War had proved valuable both during the conflict and as subsequent reference sources. Early in the Second World War the Director of Naval Intelligence ordered the preparation of a new and improved series to meet the requirements of the day. The Handbooks were designed to provide, in the words of the Preface, "for the use of Commanding Officers, information in a comprehensive and convenient form about countries which they may be called upon to visit, not only in war but in peace-time; secondly, to maintain the high standard of education in the Navy and, by supplying officers with material for lectures ... to ensure for all ranks that visits to a new country shall be both interesting and profitable"' (Cambridge Archive Editions, who reproduce a few titles of the series, online). Provenance: Kenneth Mason (1887-1976) was a geographer-soldier, mountaineer and the first statutory professor of geography at Oxford University. Inspired by Younghusband's Heart of a Continent as a child, he conducted intense surveys of the Himalayas and was awarded an RGS medal in 1927 for his surveys of India and Russian Turkestan as well for his leadership of the Shakshagam Expedition. 'Mason also revitalized the links between geography at Oxford and practical service. These had begun with the RGS's involvement in the establishment of the discipline at Oxford and were fostered by Halford Mackinder and particularly his successor, A. J. Herbertson. Under Mason, with his extensive contacts in the military services, government, the city, and the RGS, the school consolidated its practical focus, linked to regional planning, surveying, exploration, teaching, and colonial service. A notable product was the Admiralty handbooks produced during the war when the school became an intelligence unit' (ODNB).

      8°, 16 pp. printed text with red title, stapled (Very Good). - Drinici, Bosnia & Herzegovina - Belgrade, Serbia: Centralni komitet Komunisticke partije Jugoslavije [Organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia] December 1942. The last number of the most important Yugoslavian Communist underground newspaper Proleter (Proletarian) includes first printings of articles by the most prominent Yugoslavian Communists, active in Partisan underground movement. - This is the last number of a famous Yugoslavian Communist newspaper Proleter, printed illegally in various locations between 1929 and December 1942. It includes first printings of articles, by most famous Yugoslavian (Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian) members of the National Liberation Army: Josip Broz Tito (1892 - 1980), Moša Pijade (1890-1957), Sreten Žujovi? (1899 – 1976), Aleksandar Rankovi? (1909 – 1983), Milovan ?ilas (1911 - 1995), Veselin Masleša (1906 — 1943), Mitra Mitrovi? (1912 - 2001) and Ivo "Lola" Ribar (1916 - 1943). The articles are written in Latin and Cyrillic script. The newspaper was distributed in the underground movement of Partisans, where articles were then reprinted in separate publications. The first number of Proleter, published by a forbidden Communist Party of Yugoslavia, was published by an underground press in Zagreb in 1929. After the police confiscated the complete numbers 3 and 5, the printing was moved to Vienna. In the next decade the newspaper was printed in Paris, Brussels and Prague, after which, in 1940, it moved back to Zagreb, then to Ljubljana and Belgrade, where during WWII it became a part of the underground Partisan printing production. There were only three war numbers and the last two war numbers were printed in Drini?i and Fo?a (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and reprinted in occupied Belgrade. A facsimile of all editions was published in 1968. Today we could not trace any original examples in institutions worldwide. References: Bibliografija, no. 8812.
