        Der Untermensch

      1942. NATIONALSOZIALISTISCHE Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei. Reichsführer-SS; Hauptamt. Der Untermensch. 50 pp. Illustrated throughout with photographs. Folio, bound in original photographic illustrated wrappers in a new black cloth folding box. Berlin: Vertrieb Nordland Verlag, 1942.|~| |~||~||~||~||~||~| A truly grim and unsettling piece of German wartime propaganda illustrating and describing Der Untermensch or 'subhuman'. Created as a means to dehumanize victims of the Nazi's atrocities, this publication juxtaposes airbrushed photographs of happy, healthy German citizens with darkened images of Jews and other Eastern Europeans. Most disturbing are the illustrations of starving Jewish and Soviet children captioned 'All this is the result of the Jewish politics regarding families. The sea of bitter children's tears, which cannot be dried even through hundreds of years' (Translated from the German). A rare survival, as most propaganda of this sort would have been destroyed following the war. Near fine.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED

      Washington D.C. 1942 - 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 p [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photographs]: Bennett Lake [and] Yukon River: Yukon Territory, circa 1933-1942

      (Yukon Territory) 1942 - Three black and white photographs, each measuring approximately 14" x 9". A set of landscape photographs taken in the Yukon Territory during the late 1930s by a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal public work relief program from 1933 to 1942. They include a portrait of a man canoeing on a mist enshrouded Bennett Lake, a herd of caribou swimming across the Yukon River, and mountain sheep grazing high up on a rocky heath near the Watson River. The first photograph has a note on the verso indicating that it was taken by "guide Johnie John"; the other two only state that they were "taken by C.C.C." All three evoke the wild, open grandeur of this remote area along the Alaskan border.

        Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1942 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. 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). Scarce in commerce. Swedberg S.011. [Attributes: First Edition]

        SERBO-CROATIAN WWII UNDERGROUND PRINTING: Ucenje o partiji [Learning about the Communist Party].

      8°, [1] mimeographed illustrated cover, 61 pp. mimeographed text, stapled (slightly age toned, paper with tiny tears and loss of paper in margins). - [Probably Croatia, between 1942-44] A seemingly unrecorded book in Serbo-Croatian language on the principles of the Communist Party, was printed by an underground press during WWII.- This very rare booklet, mimeographed on thicker fragile paper explains the principles of the Communist Party, as the main source to fight Fascism. The book was printed by an unknown (probably) Croatian underground Partisan press during WWII. We could not trace any examples in institutions worldwide. Bibliografija mentions several underground WWII Partisan publications with the same title, but none matches the collation of our book.
