        The High Window

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1942 First edition, first printing of the author's third Philip Marlowe mystery. One of 6,500 copies. Publisher's light grayish brown cloth, lettered in purplish red; in the original pictorial blue dust jacket designed by Hans J. Barschel, with an illustration of a man falling from a window to the front board and spine, lettered in white and yellow. Near fine, with some wear from a removed bookplate to the front pastedown, light offsetting to the endpapers, a few faint spots to the top edge, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with a few minor chips to the spine head, some light toning to the spine and panel edges, a few faint spots of light soiling to the otherwise very clean panels. Overall, a handsome copy. Bruccoli A3.1.a In The High Window, private investigator Philip Marlowe searches for the wealthy Murdock family's missing rare coin, the Brasher Dubloon. What seems to be a simple case turns into a complicated web of crime and deceit. In classic Chandler fashion, he keeps the reader guessing until the very end. This novel is also demonstrative of Marlowe's sensitivity underneath his tough exterior, which distinguishes him from similar hard-boiled detective characters such as Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op and Sam Spade. After uncovering the victimization of the Murdock family's secretary Merle, Marlowe makes a point to remove her from her harmful living situation.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        FRONT #1-2

      1942 - [FRONT MAGAZINE] Okada Kuwamitsu(?), editor. FRONT 1-2 1942. Tokyo, Toho- sha, Showa 17 [1942]. Photo-illustrated wrappers, 42.3 x 29.7 cm. This is the Chinese language edition, meant for the continent, of the great propaganda magazine FRONT, which appeared in some 15 different languages. This is the first issue (number 1-2), dedicated to the Imperial Navy and its "defense of Asia". The work combines the talents of some of the most important of Japan's photographers, working under the direction of Kimura Ihei. The layout was designed under the direction of Hara Hiromu. Our copy is a bit worn and stained, but the Chinese language versions are very hard to find, having been sent to what was, in effect, an active war zone. Very unusual. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Total War Battle Map.

      Winchester, MA. Ernest Dudley Chase. Copyright 1942. Color pictorial map, 15 x 35 1/4 inches, on sheet 16 x 36 1/2 inches. Professionally mounted on linen, minimizing abrasion to fold lines. SIGNED IN PENCIL AT LOWER LEFT by the artist. Light discoloration along right vertical fold. An inspirational World War II map of the world designed and published by Ernest Dudley Chase with poetical note at lower centre: A Battle Map, to set the stage For "total war" on land and sea; And, in the border, just a hint - A prayer - for total victory! In addition, the cartouche declares: "Certain Victory Will be Ours!" The five border vignettes feature 'A Yank Tank,' 'Coast Artillery,' 'Mobile Field Gun,' 'Flying Fortress' and 'New Anti Aircraft Gun Mounts by Westinghouse.' Germany and Japan are marked in black. There is extensive treatment of the Pacific Islands, a major battle field. It is signed in pencil by the mapmaker with his full name Ernest Dudley Chase (his maps were often signed E.D.Chase). This map is often seen with red accents (to the V signs in the border, in the vignette images at map edges, to the title lettering) which are not present on this copy. The blue coloration is also different in quality from other examples (here a deeper, brighter color) suggesting that there were different printings made of this iconic map, designed to inspire the patriotism of the American public.

        Zozo (Curious George)

      Chatto & Windus, London 1942 - "Zozo (Curious George)" written and illustrated by H. A. Rey. First UK edition, first printing, with "1942" on the copyright page, with no subsequent printings mentioned. The first American edition of "Curious George" was published a year earlier in 1941, and with the original dust jacket, retails for over $20,000. The book measures 8.5" x 10.25", unpaginated, with illustrated endsheets. Softcover. Published by Chatto & Windus, London. The reason the title is "Zozo" instead of "Curious George" is a reflection of the times in the UK. In British vernacular at the time, "curious" meant homosexual. George was the name of the King at the time of publication, so the publisher changed the title of the book to "Zozo" to avoid causing offense to King George VI. Publisher's original pictorial card covers with integral dust jacket. The dust jacket is in very good condition. Minor soiling and foxing to the covers with a few short closed tears. The front flap is clipped, but retains the original price of 5s. net. The book is in very good plus condition. Light foxing to the softcovers, fore-edges of the textblock, and throughout the text. The contents are entirely complete with a just about visible erased pencil name on the "this belongs to" page and the odd finger mark to the margins throughout.

        Maps of the California Gold Region 1848-1857 a biblio-cartography of an important decade

      San Francisco: Grabhorn Press, 1942. Leather Bound. xlii, 153p., 9.75x14.5 inches, foreword, introductory, background maps, alphabetical index, 26 folding maps beautifully reproduced and expertly folded (printed b&w, or monochrome, in colors, the "Ornamental" one hand-colored whether at the bindary or in full photographic reproduction). First edition, one of 300 copies, the binding is green paper-over-boards and blond quarter-calf backing with red leather spine label gilt. Textblock and endsheets are fine and clean, with no misfolding of maps. Externally, there is a small square sunned area to calf on the rear board that may reflect the tanning of the hide used for this copy; but there is also some scuffing (very mild, evened-out scuffing) to spine panel that contrasts to the calf surface on the boards, which has a smooth, pressed look and feel; that oddity makes us wonder if the panel is sandpapered. But the spine label is perfect, the boards likewise, the volume handsome and handleable and we can confidently call it a very good copy.
