        Art of this Century. Objects - Drawings - Photographs - Paintings - Sculpture - Collages 1910 to 1942. Edited by Peggy Guggenheim

      New York, Art of This Century - Thirty West Fifty-Seventh Street NY, 1942 - 156 S. mit sehr zahlreichen schwarz/weiss Abbildungen. 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. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 1200 4° Farbig bedruckter Originalleinenband (nach einer Zeichnung von Max Ernst).

        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.

        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]

      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). .

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.
