        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.

        Autograph Letter Signed Twice to British author an film producer, R. J. Minney (1895-1979)on printed address stationery, 4to, London, March 3, 1942

      - Wells writes a philosophical letter to the editor of "The Strand Magazine," R. J. Minney (1895-1979) who was also an author and film producer. Minney was the editor of "The Strand Magazine" from 1941-42, after working at other magazines which published Wells' works. By the time Wells writes this letter to Minney, they had established a long working relationship. At the beginning of the letter, Wells answers Minney's request for a "tiny contribution" for which he has been paid 10 pounds. He, rather sarcastically suggests that he is giving Minney "The gist of a life's experience for" 10 pounds. The first section of the letter is bracketed "Private & Personal." Here Wells writes, "My dear Minney, 'Tiny Contribution' indeed. The gist of a life's experience for £10! I like your check. It will take me hours to compose the brief message below?." He signs for the first time, "Yours H. G. Wells." What follows can be described as that "gist of a life's experience." Whether this was intended for inclusion in an article for "The Strand Magazine," it is difficult to say. It does not appear to have been published. Wells writes as if he is proofreading his own work as well, with a cross-out correction and periods circled. In his fine hand he writes, "For the future life of the species see my 'outlook for Homo Sapiens'.," recently published in 1942 when this letter was written. He inserts and arrow from the words above to insert "lower case" fonts. He continues, "but if you mean the conscious individual life I see nothing worth carrying over and no means of carrying it over. Conscious life is dependent on a supply of aerated blood to the brain. When that stops we stop. When it weakens or is interrupted we sleep or faint. Yet those whom we have known & loved & who have died may live on in us more powerfully than when they were alive I have done things & not done things in the past year because of the silent influence of X who died fifteen years ago. But we defile & destroy such precious memories [here he is referring to his second wife, Amy Catherine Robbins, whom he called Jane and who had died in 1927] altogether if we finish the foul intervention of Sludge this Medium or if we talk too freely [here Wells has crossed out two words, first "freely" which appear to be misspelled, then above that "Falsely", then below rewrites "freely" ] and make an egotistical parade of our loss." He signs a second time, "H. G. Wells," adding a paraph connected to the "s" Around the same time as this letter, Wells was likely working on the last few articles and essays he published, all dealing in some way with the concept articulated here. Wells published a series of essays "'42 to 44: A Contemporary Memoir," which also included a thesis he submitted in 1942 to the University of London for the Doctorate of Science. The thesis was on the "Quality of Illusion in the Continuity of the Individual?." In all of these final writings, Wells presents himself as more of a scientist than an artist, not as much a novelist as a thinker. In "The Happy Turning," which was published in 1945, he says, "The human mind may be in a phase of transition to a new, fearless, clear-headed way of living in which understanding will be the supreme interest in life, and beauty a mere smile of approval? in a universe completely conscious of itself, Being achieves its end. Wells was remarkable for his foresight and imagination in such famous works as "The Time Machine" and "The Invisible Man." Wells was deeply concerned about society's future, an interest that led him to seek answers from such political groups as the Fabian Society. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
