        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

      [Various printers for H.M. Stationery Office], December 1941 [vol. II October 1942]. 8vo, two volumes. 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).

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.

        Problems of Lasting Peace

      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.

Erste und einzige Ausgabe. Eins 2500 Exemplaren. \"The purpose of this book is to serve as a catalogue to the permanent collection exhibited at ART OF THIS CENTURY. As most things change unexpectedly during the course of their development this catalogue has, to my great surprise, become an anthology of non-realistic art covering the period of 1910 to 1942. Its limitations are due to the fact that it contains only reproductions of paintings and sculpture owned by me. I do hope that the next edition will be more complete and that I shall be able to acquire several other important works that represent phases of the evolution of this art.\" (Peggy Guggenheim, S. 9) Beide Kapitale leicht rasiert, sonst gutes Exemplar.

        We of the Never-Never

      Hutchinson, London 1942 - 151st thousand [1942]/ 1908. Octavo, 248 pages with a map plus 16 plates. 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.

        Poems for a Competition / Emily Chamberlain Cook Prize in Poetry / Twenty-sixth Award -- 1942

      The Fugitive Press, Sacramento, California 1942 - Robert Hayward Barlow (1918-1951) was 13 when he started corresponding with pulp magazine writers H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. But he already had the instincts of a preservationist -- he convinced Lovecraft to stop throwing away his scrawled manuscripts after a story was published; Barlow offered to type the stories and send Lovecraft the typed copies if he could keep the autograph manuscripts. Barlow was attempting to write fantasy tales; Lovecraft -- who traveled to Florida for several extended visits -- undertook to tutor the youth in fiction writing. The two collaborated on six stories, including "The Night Ocean" (which new research has shown to be almost entirely Barlow's.) Barlow went on to write superb short stories without Lovecraft's help, including "A Dim-Remembered Story," "The Root-Gatherers," and "Return by Sunset." The older members of Lovecraft's coterie took offense when they learned he'd named young Barlow -- then 19 -- his literary executor. Barlow donated all the original materials to the John Hay Library at Brown. But Lovecraft disciples August Derleth and Donald Wandrei wanted to collect the master's stories in a book; they were not amused when Barlow published Lovecraft's commonplace book in a letterpress edition of seventy-five copies. They spread rumors that Barlow had pilfered books from Lovecraft's library. The macabre writer and artist Clark Ashton Smith responded by sending Barlow a note: "Please do not write me or try to communicate with me in any way. I do not wish to see you or hear from you after your conduct in regard to the estate of a late beloved friend." Barlow wrote the effect of the letter "was of cutting out my entrails with a meat cleaver," notes Paul La Farge in The New Yorker (March, 2017). He had been exiled from the literary universe that had been the focus of his life. He thought about killing himself, but instead decided to pursue an (apparently unrelated) interest in anthropology, ending up at Berkeley, where he studied under Alfred Kroeber, whose work with Ishi, the last of California's Stone Age Indians, had made him famous. Barlow's poignant memoir of Lovecraft, "The Wind That Is In the Grass" can be found in "Marginalia" (Arkham House, 1944.) In 1942, when Barlow was finishing up his degree at Berkeley, he wrote "Poems for a Competition," which won both the 26th Emily Chamberlain Cook Prize for the best unpublished verse submitted by an undergraduate, AND the Ina Coolbrith Memorial Prize. After accepting a teaching position at the City College of Mexico, where he became a noted expert on the Nahuatl language and was appointed head of the Anthropology Department, he produced a second book of verse, "View from a Hill" (1947.) Lovecraft biographer S.T. Joshi describes both volumes as "scintillating." But where are they? Afraid of being outed as a homosexual by a disgruntled student (he probably would have lost his job and could even have been prosecuted), Barlow committed suicide in 1951. Although Barlow wrote numerous learned papers, and the book "The Extent of the Empire of the Culhua Mexico" (University of California, 1949), the only books of general interest in his known bibliography are the two slim volumes of verse, "Poems for a Competition" (Fugitive Press, 1942) and "View from a Hill" (Azcapotzalco, 1947). Look for them, and all you'll learn is that "their entire contents are reprinted in 'Eyes of the God,'" a 2002 anthology. Of the originals, no trace. Except that two copies of "Poems for a Competition," a 16-page octavo on quality paper in brown wraps, turn out to have been neatly hand-taped into boards and stored away in the archives of the University of California, stamped "July 31, 1942," with the words "UNIV OF CALIFORNIA" neatly hole-punched to the title pages. These were archival copies, not lending copies; they bear no card-holders of date due slips. This one is labeled "Cop. 2." In some years of looking, it's the only original we've ever found.
