        PROPAGANDA / WORLD WAR II / ROMMEL’S AFRIKAKORPS: ROMMEL PERSIGUE A LOS INGLESES EN EL AFRICA DEL NORTE. [ROMMEL PURSUES THE ENGLISH IN NORTH AFRICA]. -

      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.

      1942. First Edition . Signed. HOOVER, Herbert and GIBSON, Hugh. The Problems of Lasting Peace. Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1942. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $2200.First edition of President Hoover and co-author Gibson's critically praised analysis of a world in crisis, published in the midst of World War II, an exceptional presentation/association copy inscribed to Admiral William V. Pratt, Hoover's Chief of Naval Operations—""To Admiral Wm. V. Pratt, With the affection of Herbert Hoover,"" continued in the hand of Gibson, ""and Hugh Gibson.""This thoughtful and timely work of statesmanship was written in the midst of WWII by former President Hoover and diplomat Hugh Gibson. On publication Problems of Lasting Peace was highly commended as a ""sane, forceful, stimulating discussion filled with many shrewd truths. It would be a fine thing if many of our own leaders would read it… [Co-author] Wallace's fervent idealism and Hoover's conservative realism both lead to the same conclusion: America's necessity to play a far greater role on the international stage of the future"" (New York Times). ""First Edition"" stated on copyright page. In this work Hoover singles out Admiral Pratt, stating that never ""did American military leadership ever rise to greater heights than under General Pershing and Admiral Benson, Pratt and Sims"" (90). Pratt ""expertly managed the enormous burdens placed on the department by American entry into World War I. In August 1918 Pratt became assistant chief of naval operations, one of the most responsible positions in the navy…. By 1929 he had achieved an admiral's four stars as commander in chief, U.S. Fleet, the top seagoing command."" President Hoover then ""asked the admiral to head the technical staff at the London Naval Conference in 1930…. Hoover hoped the admiral's moderate views would neutralize the more conservative stance his colleagues in the department had adopted"" (ANB). Hoover subsequently appointed Pratt chief of naval operations and later wrote: ""Admirals Pratt, Hepburn, and Jones genuinely supported what we were trying to do (Memoirs II:341). Book fine; light edge-wear to original dust jacket. A near-fine presentation/association copy, very scarce inscribed by both Hoover and his co-author.

Black cloth; trifling signs of use and age; an excellent copy with the dustwrapper, fresh and bright, having been removed, folded and stored since new (albeit with heavy vertical and horizontal creases and a small tear at the rear). Provenance: Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist and author, with his 1942 bookplate (by George Perrottet). Loosely inserted is an autograph letter signed from the author, Jeannie Gunn (nee Taylor) to Pescott (small quarto, 3 pages, 29 July 1940, complete with the envelope addressed by Gunn). She begins with thanks for his recent birthdays greetings to her, but the bulk of the letter concerns matters (not) arising in Pescott's 'little Bonwick book. . . Personally I would like to say from myself how much I appreciate your most tactful leaving unsaid of any reference to poor little Auntie Annie's first & disastrous marriage that left only bitterness & recrimination in the hearts of so many of those most nearly concerned - Poor children! Auntie Annie was just a gay spoiled little child of 16 - & gay and spoiled she remained all through her 90 years. And poor Uncle John was just a broken-hearted boy in his young twenties at her desertion of him in his bitter adversity . . . There is just one thing in it all to dear old James Bonwick's honour - He remained the truest & most loyal friend to John Taylor's parents all their life - especially perhaps to my mother!'. Auntie Annie was Esther Annie Bonwick, one of the children of James Bonwick. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges.

        Maskinskrivet manuskript med ett flertal egenhändigt skrivna änringar och tillägg

      Brev, dokument, handskrift. Ett manuskript som omfattar tre maskinskrivna sidor, skrivet av Vilhelm Moberg, med ett stort antal egenhändigt skrivna ändringar och tillägg. Moberg använde manuskriptet vid ett tal som han höll i Lund den 31 oktober 1942 på inbjudan av Smålands nation. I manuskriptet står bland annat: "Detta är roten och blodsbandet, detta är för mig fosterland och hembygd, det omistliga, som aldrig kan utbytas mot något annat, det okränkbara området, där intet främmande får inkräkta". "Det är de dödas land och de levandes, och det är allas vår andliga arvslott. Den arvslotten skall icke släppas så länge fria män och kvinnor ännu trampar marken i denna fria bygd". Det går inte att ta miste på att detta tal hölls mitt under det andra världskriget. Småland får här representera hela vårt land. Talet hölls av den anledningen att Moberg hade utsetts till hedersledamot av Smålands Nation i Lund. Manuskriptet innehåller många handskrivna ändringar och tillägg. Det är på tre sidor och mäter 28,5 cm x 22,5 cm. Det förekommer veck och kantrevor, men texten är helt intakt och i gott skick.

        Speech Broadcast by The Prime Minister Mr. Winston Churchill, May 10, 1942

      The British Library of Information, New York 1942 - This is a beautifully fine copy of the first English-language edition, only printing of Churchill's May 10, 1942 broadcast address, made on the second anniversary of his becoming wartime Prime Minister. Churchill spoke that night to the British people live from the Cabinet War Room. It was five days later, on a tour of bomber stations, army units, and armaments factories, that Churchill most aptly summed up the overall theme of his broadcast address when he told a Leeds crowd: "We have reached a period in the war when it would be premature to say that we have topped the ridge, but now we see the ridge ahead." Churchill’s 10 May broadcast address looks both back to darker times earlier in the war, and to present challenges that herald a better future. By the end of his second year as Prime Minister, the imminent threat to Britain had eased sufficiently that Churchill faced political divisions in the wartime coalition and growing criticism of his war leadership. Addressing this criticism, he had drafted a passage which began, "Everyone feels safer now, and in consequence the weaker brethren become more vocal ", seeking to diminish his critics and stave off their efforts to reduce his "power of direction and initiative." Wisely, Churchill deleted this passage at the last moment. Perhaps as a gentler and more deft assertion of his leadership, Churchill recalled the early days of the war when France had fallen and Britain was alone: "It fell to me in those days to express the sentiments and resolves of the British nation in that supreme crisis of its life For a whole year after the fall of France we stood alone " He spoke of his difficult and uncomfortable ally, Russia, complimenting Russia for her tenacity, but attributing her victory to the Russian winter. He spoke against gas warfare, promising that Britain would be prepared to retaliate massively in kind against Germany in kind should Germany resort to poison gas – echoing the deterrence through threat of massive retaliation strategy that would characterize the coming Cold War. He also spoke of Japan, and the promise of combined British and American sea power. Churchill concluded with a bracingly Churchillian attaboy: " tonight I give you a message of good cheer. You deserve it, and the facts endorse it. But be it good cheer or be it bad cheer will make no difference to us; we shall drive on to the end, and do our duty, win or die " This pamphlet is one in a series of Churchill's speeches printed by the British Library of Information in New York. As do most in the series, this example bears a cover design featuring 3 vertical rules along the right side and a royal arms device at the top right. The British Library of Information published twenty-nine editions of statements, speeches, and broadcast addresses by Prime Minister Winston Churchill, beginning with his first speech as Prime Minister of May 13, 1940 and ending with the broadcast address of November 29, 1942. These editions were often issued within two or three days of delivery and "reveal the political determination of the British government to bring the inspiration and steadfastness of the Prime Minister and the British nation to an American nation not yet engaged in the war. Indeed, twenty-two of the BLOI speech pamphlets were published before Pearl Harbor." (Cohen, Volume I, p.513, A120) This twelve-page, wire-stitched pamphlet measures 9 inches tall x 6 inches wide. We find this particular BLOI pamphlet to be especially scarce, and doubly so in such condition, which is genuinely fine. The pamphlet remains crisp, clean, and complete. We find no tears, no losses, no previous ownership marks, and virtually no wear or soiling. Both binding staples remain firmly intact and show no corrosion. We note only mild age-toning. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, clear mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A169.2, Woods A88/1 First English-language edition, only printing. [Attributes: First Edition]

        CARTOGRAPHIC PROPAGANDA / WORLD WAR II / JAPANESE EMPIRE: LA BANDERA VICTORIOSA DEL JAPÓN ONDEA SOBRE EL PACÍFICO. [THE VICTORIOUS FLAG OF JAPAN FLIES OVER THE PACIFIC].

      Colour off-set printing (Good, some wear along old folds, printed on very fragile paper), 59.5 x 83.5 cm (23.5 x 33 inches). - [Fascist Spain], December 1942. A magnificent large-format propaganda broadside, or ‘wall newspaper’ made in December 1942, during World War II, to celebrate the conquests made by Japan across the Asia-Pacific region, published in Fascist Spain. - This brilliantly designed, large format propaganda broadside, or ‘wall newspaper’, was issued in December 1942 to celebrate the impressive conquests that Japan had made during the early stages of World War II in the Pacific Theatre. The work was issued in the Castilian language in Fascist Spain, likely sponsored by an unknown agent of the Nazi German government, Japan’s key ally. The focus of the work is a powerful map that shows the entire theatre of the war, extending from India, across East Asia, and then all the way over to the west coast of North America. Japan enjoys the pride of place, with bright arrows branching out in all directions, showing the paths and targets of Japanese conquests and attacks. Indeed, by this time, Japan had vanquished all British, American and Dutch positions in East Asia, and was mounting sporadic attacks upon Allied positions as far war as Alaska and Sri Lanka. The red cloud which rests over East Asia shows the extent of Japanese conquests to date, while imperial Japan’s ‘Rising Sun’ flag flies over the scene in the upper-left corner. The balance of the composition is filled with photographs and rhetorical text that proclaims how Japan is mowing down its opposition. Japan & the Early Stages of the Pacific War - Although they had suffered some set backs, in December 1942, Japan was the dominant force in the Asia Pacific region, with the Allies, based in India, Australia and the North America, on the defensive. World War II in East Asia, or at least the Japan vs. the Allies element of it, began in December 1941, over a year later than in the Western theatre. Japan famously mounted a successful seek attack upon the U.S. base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. From there, Japan quickly found itself at war with the U.S., Britain, Australia and the Netherlands. For the next six months, Japan enjoyed rapid and almost complete success everywhere. On December 25, 1941, Japan conquered Hong Kong from British-Canadian forces. In January 1942, she conquered Burma and Malaysia from the British, and most of the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) from the Netherlands; and the Philippines for the United States. In February, Japan took Singapore, the last major British base in East Asia. That same month, the Japanese air force made a devastating air raid upon Darwin, Australia, and in the following months made air raids into the Indian Ocean, striking Colombo, Ceylon (Sri Lanka). .

        [Archive]: U.S. Navy Officer's Letters and Bluejacket's Manual with Photo Album from World War II, 1942-1946

      New Jersey / Massachusetts / Ohio / Pennsylvania / Texas. 1942-1946 (a few earlier). A collection of 79 letters to and from Marion Alexander Cassell during his time in the Navy from 1942 through 1946 as well as a photo album and his copy of the Bluejackets' Manual. Album is an oblong octavo measuring 11" x 7". Brown cloth boards bound together with string. The album contains 66 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1.5" x 1" and 5" x 3.5" with some captions written on the back of the photographs. The Bluejackets' Manual: is a tenth edition. 12mo. 784pp. Blue cloth boards with stamped green titles. All items are near fine. The letters have light creasing from mailing; the book has modest spotting on the top page-edge with lightly bumped corners; and the photo album has tiny tears and small chips. Letters to and from Marion Alexander Cassell during his time in the Navy from various locations some being, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Most of the letters are from Cassell's mother, Mary, in Oak Hill, Ohio. She writes often of how much she misses him and dotes on his health; "You boys need all you can get and for all you have done! Be sure and have a heart check!" She also brings up the women her son is dating, as she mentions Doris Wallentine and three other women, Edith, Florence, and Alice Dodds. There are a couple of letters written by Cassell addressed to his mother. He mostly writes about his time traveling from place to place and though he was in the navy, he frequently got seasick, "Now I know what it's like to be seasick. You just get so sick you don't care whether the world comes or goes". He writes often about how he is sick and tired but enjoys the journey. He also writes to his mother about the many different "blondes" he flirts with, "I really do love her (Florence)... Coincidentally, I met a beautiful blonde the other day. I really do like blondes, I just can't seem to help it." Several letters are from Doris Wallentine, an admirer or romantic interest of Cassell's from Dallas, Texas. She often writes very flatly and rarely shows interest in their relationship. Only a few times does she write anything about the two of them, "Frankly, I was quite flattered that you thought enough of me to travel 1400 miles to see me -- and maybe also by the fact that you say you didn't flirt with any blondes -- because, knowing you, I know that must have been quite a strain! Ha! Ha!" Wallentine also expressed an interest in joining the WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), "I have been thinking about rather seriously joining the Waves -- what would you think of that -- as I know you never had much a woe for women in uniform?" Another admirer, Alice Dodds also frequently writes to Cassell. Her earliest letter (from Wellesley, Massachusetts) to Cassell attempts to reconnect with him after 18 months of not talking, "I had to decide whether not to reply to your last letter sent 18 months ago...At this time you may be a dignified married man who no longer desires to carry a 'pole,' of candy under his arm... Pardon my terrible correspondence." However, the letters written from her to Cassell after are warm and friendly. Cassell did not end up marrying or continuing his romantic relationship with Wallentine, Edith, Florence, or Alice Dodds as in 1955, he married Hazel Clare Moreland. According to sources not in this archive, Moreland traveled across the country to start a new life in Los Angeles. There she met Naval Commander Marion Cassell. After their marriage in 1955, they traveled the world together as well as across continental North America. Moreland worked for the founders of MGM during the golden era of Hollywood. She became involved with script writing and film production, and considered herself fortunate to know many of the stars during that period. Cassell never had any children and passed away in 1990 at the age of 80.Additionally featured in the Bluejackets' Manual is a gelatin silver sepia photograph of Marion Alexander Cassell laid in as well as names and addresses of fellow Navy men handwritten on the front free endpaper and Cassell's name stamped on the rear pastedown. Other ephemera includes a couple letters from friends asking how Cassell is doing, some mail from a construction company talking about building more structures for Army bases, and an envelope containing all of Cassell's information from the Naval Training School in Princeton, New Jersey. The photo album presents something of a mystery as it centers primarily on a young women's photographs of her time in the WAVES and in college. Several show her in Navy uniform with other women standing together or laughing and hugging each other. The other photos are of her with college friends and of different couples in the Navy. All the pictures are filled with smiles and not a single one solemn. The young woman's name is not written in but it can be assumed she was either a close friend or romantic partner of Cassell's, as she is seen in several pictures with him. How Cassell acquired the album is not entirely clear, but it did come with the archive, and provides at least some content on his relationships.An interesting look back on a man's life during World War II and his many relationships and adventures. .

        Spleen de Paris.

      Edition illustree etornee par le peintre d'Essertine[Illustrated and decorated edition by a painter of Essertine]. Theoule sur Mer [France] : Phillipe Gonin, 1942. Quarto, original hand-lettered wrappers, collated in sections (as issued), pp 81, bookplate to colophon leaf. Housed in faux leather portfolio with hand-lettered spine (hinges split), original faux leather slipcase. Consists of 13 poems, extensively illustrated with gouache and watercolour portraits, still lifes, and initials."Cette edition a ete faite sur l'Initiative de Mr Jean E. Bonna. Il a ete fait vingt exemplaires numerotes de 1 a 20. Chaque livre est illustre et peint a la main." [This edition made on the initiative of Mr Jean E. Bonna. It was done in twenty copies numbered 1 to 20. Each book is illustrated and hand painted.] Baudelaire'sSpleen de Paris(first published in 1869) represents an important early precursor to literary modernism, written exclusively in newly established poetic prose to capture the essence of modern, urban life. Baudelaire was heavily influenced by Aloysius Bertrand’s Gaspard de la nuit and sought to apply a new, modern poetic language to themes of pleasure and debauchery, metropolitan poverty, class divides, and the inevitable march of time.The full fifty vingnettes were originally published as the compilationPetits Poèmes en prose and represented writings from across the last twelve years of Baudelaire's life. This war-time publication, printed no doubt to combat the images of desctruction so prevalent in Europe at the time, includes the poemsÀ une heure du matin,Les Foules, L’Horloge, Un Hémisphère dans une chevelure,Les Projets,La Belle Dorothée,Enivrez-vous,Déjà,Les Fenêtres,Le Désir de peindre,Les Bienfaits de la lune,Le Port, andPortraits de maîtresses.Illustrated with original artworks composed in homage to impressionists such as Pissaro as well as the semi-eroticism of Gaugin, this rare edition of Baudelaire's seminal work appears to not be held in any institutional collection.
