        THE LOITERERS

      MANUSCRIPT ILLUSTRATED NOVEL "THE LOITERERS" . BOGUE, Ida M. [1886-1972] Manuscript novel with watercolour illustrations by the author. Pp [xxii],824 written in a tidy 1940's "printed" hand in blue ink. Thirty watercolour illustrations plus manuscript map frontispiece with a further seemingly unrelated scraper-board picture.Approx 26cm. x 21 cm. Bound by the author in natural linen, decorated and lettered. Recently re-cased with new endpapers, retaining the original covers.The illustrations are very well done, and are typical of the period. The story revolves around two boys and their adventures- subtitled " a light-hearted Chronicle".Also included as an illustration leaf are five extremely rare Chinese Washerwomen's labels dating from the 1880's and originating in Hongkong, Shanghai, and Foochow. Ida M Bogue was born to William and Mary Bogue in 1886 in Walthamstow Essex .During the 1901 UK Census she was 15 years old and lived in Weymouth and Melcombe Regis, Dorset. She worked as a teacher and artist, with an interest in miniature painting, exhibiting at Weymouth Art exhibitions. She spent much of her life painting from nature, focusing on the Weymouth Bay and the surrounding Dorset villages. She was a spinster who had spent much of her adult life caring for elderly parents and in her latter years led a solitary life and became blind. Intriguingly another literary work of hers "Child Hazel" appeared on the BBC "Antiques Road Show" with her descendants stating that they wished to publish the work. She made up the story, which she described as "An idyll of the nature world", hand lettered it, and painted a series of watercolours as colour plates, as in this work, also making the binding. In her will she left it to her descendants, among them her great-niece Fiona Duncan, who took it along to Antiques Roadshow.We have seen prints of some of the illustrations for sale. "The Loiterers" is an astonishing piece of work , with the immaculately lettered text and extremely accomplished illustrations evoking a more innocent age.That the book has survived at all is unusual, but to have survived in such excellent condition is exceptional. The binding is aged and evocative-and now stable and secure. There is some light foxing throughout, but this does not detract greatly from the overall impact of the book.A unique item.

        The Little Prince

      New York, Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. Hardback first edition and first impression. A very good copy. The boards have a little bumping and edge wear, endpapers a little toned, some light foxing to the foreedge. The jacket has an area of loss to the lower edge, and a chip to the top edge, one large tear to the top. Similar wear to the spine tips, and similar to the rear of the jacket. Flaps in good shape. One of the best known works of Children's literature. It is the fourth most translated book in the world, having been translated into 250 languages. A wonderful story with a history almost as intriguing as the novella itself. It's hard to stress the importance of the book; Britain had Alice in Wonderland, America had The Wizard of Oz, France had The Little Prince. A true highlight of book collecting.

        The German National Registration System

      [Lansdowne, Pa]: Published by the author, 1943. First edition. Softcover. g- to vg. Quarto. [4], 74 leaves. Original printed wrappers. In this Staff study published only for OMGUS (the Office of Military Government, United States), Robert Kempner* considers it likely that the condition of German society immediately after the upcoming collapse of the Nazi regime would be chaotic enough to require the maintenance of a modified version of what he terms the 'National Police Registration," the Nazi centralized and police-operated 'Reichsmeldeordnung' system**. Kempner's conclusions were to become the basis of occupation policy on this issue throughout the rest of the 1940s. Minor age-toning and sporadic creasing along edges of covers. Some moderate abrasion along foredge of front wrap and the first 24 leaves (not affecting text), as they were pulled out from the book block. The remaining leaves are all stapled together, along with the back cover. Wrappers in overall good- to good, interior in good+ to very good condition. * Robert Kempner (1899-1993) was a German-born American lawyer. After the Nazi rise to power in 1933, Hermann Goering fired Kempner from his position because of his anti-Nazi activities. He was then arrested and held for two months in a concentration camp after being accused of leaking information about Germany's rearmament, activities forbidden under the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles. In 1935, Wilhelm Frick, then the Interior Minister, used Kempner's Jewish background to revoke his German citizenship. Kempner was then expelled from Germany. He taught law for a few years in Italy before immigrating to the United States. After World War II Kempner returned to Germany, the land of his birth, to serve as assistant US chief counsel during the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. In a spectacular reversal of fortune, Kempner would prosecute two of his former superiors and persecutors - Hermann Goering and Wilhelm Frick. ** The 'Reichsmeldeordnung' system administered the following registers:A. Register of Persons (Melderegister)B. Register of Buildings (Hausregister)C. People's Card Index (Volkskartei)D. Alien Card Index (Auslaenderkartei).

        [Large Scrapbook Archive of Undergarment Packaging Samples from Consolidated Lithographing Corporation]

      Brooklyn, NY: Consolidated Lithographing Corp., [1943-1958]. Hardcover. Near fine. Elephant folio. Grey cloth screw-bound boards. Measuring approximately 24" x 16.5" containing 350+ color lithographed and chromolithographed paper packaging elements in a wide variety of sizes adhesive mounted recto and verso to 38 paper leaves. Additional 65 leaves blank. Top board stamped "Consolidated Lithographing Corporation." Pencil notations recording catalog numbers and dates throughout. Mild handling wear to exterior. Penned notation to cover notes "Set 5, Book 5." Likely one volume from larger company archive. Contents clean, well preserved, and apparently complete. Near fine overall. An enormous scrapbook of chronologically-arranged printing samples from the Consolidated Lithographing Corporation of Brooklyn, preserving the company's packaging work for the undergarment industry. Labels include bands, tags, wraps and labels from predominantly women's products: stockings, hosiery, lingerie, bras, panties, and the like. Men's and children's products also represented, however (socks, undershirts, etc.). The printing processes evident in the samples evolve from chromolithography to color lithography to photo mechanical in the later examples - all vivid and exhibiting elegant postwar design. Hundreds of brands and products in total: Regent Hosiery, Artemis Underthings, Treo Undergaments, Spick and Span Hosiery, Lowenstein Fabrics, Sport-Wear, The Lone Ranger and Superman Branded Socks, among many others. Consolidated Lithographing Corporation was founded by Jacob A. Voice around 1925 and operated as one of the finest and most prolific American commercial printers of the era, specializing in cigar labels, dust jackets (for Doubleday), liquor labels, garment packaging and more. This rich archive, likely containing the only extant examples of numerous works, offers numerous worthy avenues for future study: from commercial printing methods to mid-century design and marketing.

        Scrapbook of Soldier's WWII Service in the Persian Gulf Command. Tehran and other places, 1943-1946.

      1943. Folio (312 x 324 mm). Green 1940s photo album. 38 pp. on 20 leaves. Includes 48 gelatin silver b/w photographs of mid-1940s Iran stored within two tipped-in envelopes. Intriguing mixed-media scrapbook of W. W. Boger (1915-90), a WWII soldier stationed for the majority of his service with the Persian Gulf Command, Iran. The album was probably assembled by his wife, Louise, during and/or after the war. Unlike many similar war service albums with their training photos, personal documents, correspondence and memorabilia, this scrapbook is unique in that it boasts a remarkable collection of fourty-eight original photographs of Iran during the end and immediate aftermath of the War. The snapshots and souvenir photos (some apparently removed from an earlier scrapbook) include the Shah and his wife, numerous specimens of architecture, street scenes and children, bazaars, executions (one of two body-less heads; the other notes on reverse: "A couple of thieves they just finished shooting"), a photo of a woman nursing an older child on the street ("Chow time"), etc. (most captioned on reverse, some not well legible). Also present are five mounted photos of the US hospital, base, etc.; a Dec. 1945 Time magazine cover story on the Shah; and a mimeo 27-page soldier's guide to Iran. The typescript of an original, unpublished poem (very likely by Boger himself) describes the disillusionment of the U.S. servicemen in the land of a Thousand and One Nights: "[...] Toilets know no water, sewers there are none, / Streets, mud holes, and offal that stinks in the midday sun. / Body sores and blindness, limbs twisted, what a sight / To see these helpless people asleep, on sidewalks cold at night. / [...] The women and the donkeys share in all the labors, / While their lazy, useless men-folks go calling on the neighbors. / You walk around from morn to night and many sights you see, / But the funniest one you gaze upon is the men who squat to pee. / If toilets were built in the thousands, in this very a[n]cient land, / The natives would use them to sleep in, they still prefer the sand. [G]raft and corruption, dysentery and smells / Are constantly beside you, no matter where one dwells [...]". - The Persian Gulf Command was a relatively small station; its establishment marked the beginning of formal modern U.S. military involvement in the Middle East. The command was originally founded to assist both British and Russian forces in maintaining supply lines, but also - and perhaps more importantly - to secure oil fields from both Germany itself and Persian Axis sympathizers within Iran. It also served as host to several important U.S. military hospitals. Boger, a Montana native, was sent to Iran after completing his training as a medic at Fort Douglas, UT, and Fort Barkeley, TX. He was assigned to 256th Station Hospital in Ahwaz, the first U.S. Hospital in the Persian Gulf theatre. Additional scrapbook material includes censored letters, telegrams, and V-Mail home, copies of Boger's orders and life insurance policy, uniform patches, newspaper clippings, currency from numerous countries, Iranian bottle labels, etc.

        The Golden Carpet. (London), the Golden Cockerell Press, (1943).

      1943. Large 4to. 128 pp. With a portrait frontispiece. Original green half calf and cream cloth boards. Includes: Autograph letter signed. No place, 29 June 1943. 8vo. 2 pp. Additional material. First edition. An account of the British Army's 1941 campaign in the Middle East, advancing from the Mediterranean to Baghdad. Published during the ongoing war, with several poetic pieces about the Middle East appended. Number 45 of 500 copies printed on Arnold's mould-made paper (nos. 1-30 of which were bound in full morocco). Signed and inscribed by the author to the Anglo-Armenian poet Ernest Altounyan: "for Altounyan / the conversations are resumed (on paper), with the author's sincere friendship / Somerset de Clair / 21 June 1943". Tipped in is a 2-page ALS from the author to Altounyan: "Let me lay the Golden Carpet before you. I have used you in the preface as a link between the Levant fighting in this war and the Revolt in the Desert [...]". He discusses some "security cuts" made to the ms. before publication, "such as the fact that [...] Glubb had only 150 men with him in the Desert Patrol although he was so much feared by the Iraqis." - Altounyan, based in Syria, wrote "Ornament of Honour" in 1937 addressed to T. E. Lawrence, written in Aleppo after Lawrence's death. He had known Lawrence for a long time and wrote the poem as a memorial embodying everything he believed to be their common philosophy of life. Of Altounyan, Lawrence wrote (in a letter to Robert Graves): "I think Frederick Manning, and an Armenian called Altounyan and E. M. Forster are three I most care for since Hogarth died." - Laid in is an autograph letter signed (21 April 1945, 1 p.) to Altounyan from Col. Franklin Lushington, author of "Yeoman Service: A Short History of the Kent Yeomanry 1939-1945", returning the volume with thanks. - Spine sunned; boards somewhat fingerstained; some browning to de Chair's ALS, otherwise in fine condition.

        WHERE THE TWO CAME TO THEIR FATHER A NAVAHO WAR CEREMONIAL.

      New York: Pantheon Books / Bollingen Series, [1943]. - [8],84,[4]pp. Quarto book of text, in printed wrappers, accompanied by printed cloth portfolio (62 x 47 cm) with ribbon ties, containing eighteen original color pochoir prints. The upper and lower paper folding flaps enclosing the plates are a bit rumbled and snagged, slight bumps to extreme lower corner of a few plates, some occasional isolated marginal smudges or tiny spots (some inherent in paper), otherwise an unusually nice set, very good to near fine. The uncommon and beautiful first edition of the first publication in the numbered sequence of the Bollingen Series, and one of the most elaborate productions to appear under its imprint. Jeff King (Hashkeh-yilth-e- yah; 1865-1964) lived on the Pinedale Navaho Reservation, and performed this ritual on the occasion of the departure of Navaho men to serve in the US Army during WWII. Oakes, who was then living on the reservation, was allowed to record the two day ceremony, and kept a record of the elaborate sandpaintings that are integral to the ritual. Based on his service as an Army scout from 1891-1911, King was the first Navaho to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery. The Bollingen Series, published under the auspices of the Bollingen Foundation with the support of Paul Mellon and his first wife, Mary, has to be reckoned one of the most ambitious and significant publishing enterprises of the 20th century. And it was highly appropriate that it was inaugurated by this beautiful production incorporating commentary by Joseph Campbell, who was long associated with the Series as author and editor.

        Photographs: 40 M-M M2 Gun Carriage. Exhibit 3 (title from cover)

      Album of 63 linen-backed photographs by J.H. Schaefer & Son in Baltimore, Maryland, depicting scenes of wartime production needs being fulfilled mostly by women and African-American machinists, at the Bartlett Hayward munitions factory, specifically the production line for the M2 anti-aircraft gun including milling machines, preparation of the chassis, drilling, and assembly of the carriages, along with photographs of blueprints and commercial photographs of Koppers machine parts, possibly assembled for sales purposes. Each photograph with typed label to verso identifying date, location, and part and production details, along with photographer's stamp. Photographs 8" x 9-3/4", album oblong 8vo. Cloth boards, title stamped to cover, "1943" hand-written in black in on spine. Baltimore (Koppers Company/Barlett Hayward Division) n.d. (circa 1943). The Bartlett-Hayward Company was started in 1840 as Hayward and Company and was founded by three stove manufacturers, including George Hayward. Not long after, Thomas Bartlett was added to the company and it was renamed Bartlett-Hayward. During the 19th and 20th centuries Bartlett-Hayward was a leading manufacturer nationwide, expanding into foundry, machinery, engineering, and architectural ironwork, among other fields. During World War I, regular production lines were shut down to make shrapnel shells for the war effort, a change in business that Barlett-Hayward approached with enthusiasm. After merging with the Pittsburgh-based Koppers Company in 1936, production again came to a halt during WWII and the firm became a main government supplier, producing the 40 MM M2 anti-aircraft gun carriage used by most of the Allies. By the end of the war, more than 2270 carriages had been produced in the factory. The industrial boom resulted in women and African-Americans being brought into the workforce in huge numbers, especially in Baltimore. As of September 2016, WorldCat does not show any listings for this album.

        1940's Radio Host Autograph Album Signed by Dozens

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. An interesting and attractive album of warm personal inscriptions and autograph signatures assembled in the 1940s by Dick Gilbert, a DJ on Arizona radio station KTYL who hosted on his show a veritable who's-who of popular music of the era. The leather album, embossed with Gilbert's name, contains signatures and personal inscriptions from jazz musicians, bandleaders, singers, actors, and Latin stars including Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Gene Krupa, the Andrews Sisters, Ed Sullivan, Tito Guizar, Cab Calloway, Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, Roy Rogers (and Trigger!) and many more. Most of the stars have written notes of thanks to Gilbert, some even adding sketches (the first page of the album has an amusing self-portrait caricature by Xavier Cugat). Frank Sinatra writes "It's kinda hard to think of the proper words to show my gratitude - so I'll just say thanx Dick - and you'll know what I mean," dated January 1943, and Krupa inscribes "To Dick - Thankz Ten Million For All The Fine Plugs." Included with the album in its original box are four brightly colored posters from Gilbert's show, each advertising a new record of the late 1940's and featuring a great caricature of Gilbert with a pile of records. Also included is a further unidentified signature on a brochure from an Arizona golf course.<br>The album, in very fine condition with decorative stamped endpapers, upper forË?edge in gilt and embossed leather cover, 6.5 x 8.75 inches (17.7 x 22.5 cm); posters have been trimmed to 14 x 8.5 inches (35.4 x 21.5 cm).<br>The signatures include: Xavier Cugat (with caricature); Carmen Cavallaro; Frank Sinatra; Duke Ellington; Larry Adler (with caricature of himself playing harmonica); Connee Boswell; Abe Lyman; Jimmy Dorsey; Joan Edwards; Bob Crosby; Dick Todd; Enrique Madriguera; Patricia Gilmore (a singer with Enrique Madriguera's orchestra); Bea Wain; Laverne, Maxine, and Patricia Andrews (the complete Andrews Sisters) on one page; Tito Guizar (two signatures); Johnny Long; Ed Sullivan; Allan Jones; Russ Morgan; Ted Fiorito; Frankie Carle; Vaughn Monroe; Lina Romay; Charlie Spivak; Cab Calloway; Eddie Howard; Les Brown; Gene Krupa; Johnnie Johnston; Andy Russell; Jo Stafford; Guy Lombardo; Louis Jordan; Erskine Hawkins; Tommy Dorsey; Roy Rogers & Trigger.

        The Golden Carpet

      London: The Golden Cockerel Press 1943 - Description: London: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1943. Single volume quarto. Full green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, titles gilt to spines, gilt edge-roll, single fillet gilt to the turn-ins, top edges gilt, the others uncut. In the white linen slipcase as issued. Spine sunned, board edges chipped and worn to the board in places, but overall very good. Photogravure portrait frontispiece. First edition, each in a signed edition limited to 300 copies of which just 30 were in the full morocco binding as here, copy 22. Golden Carpet is signed at the front of the volume. Somerset de Chair was Intelligence Officer with "Kingcol", a Flying Column of less than 1,500 men under the Command of Brigadier General Kingstone. This tiny force was sent from Palestine to Baghdad to deal with the effects of the "Golden Square" coup amongst pro-Nazi Iraqi Military Officers. Despite the air support extended to the Iraqis by the German and Italian air forces, the operation was a complete success, Baghdad falling on 30th May 1941, the books cover this and subsequent operations in Syria. Reviewed in the Spectator on the issue of the composite trade edition in 1944 as "a fascinating and well-told story in the tradition of T. E. Lawrence, and one worthy to take its place in the history of British soldiers' heroic campaigns in the Near East".

Betty Smith's coming-of-age novel set in turn-of-the-century New York was an immediate bestseller, gaining enormous popularity among front line US servicemen via an Armed Services Edition produced in a huge numbers: "Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was perhaps the most popular ASE of them all.

        Pilote de guerre

      Sans, Editions de la Maison Française, 1943 In-8 (18,5cm x 13cm) de 254pp. Broché, à couverture imprimée, sous un emboîtage réalisé par Julie NADOT illustré d'une reproduction du dessin original sur le premier plat. Première édition autorisée. Exceptionnel exemplaire comportant sur le faux-titre un dessin original représentant le petit prince ainsi qu'un envoi autographe signé à Pierre Douzé : "Pour Pierre Douzé et madame Pierre Douzé. (Pardon, Pierre Douzé s'est cité le premier !) Avec ma vieille amitié pour lui en le groupe 2/33 (et si Pierre Douzé est un type bien c'est parce qu'il fait parti du groupe 2/33). Avec ma vieille amitié. [Signature]". Très bel exemplaire, étui en parfait état, ouvrage en bel état. LE GROUPE 2/33 (1939-1940) Dans les jours qui suivent la déclaration de guerre de la France à l'Allemagne le 3 septembre 1939, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry est mobilisé. Il est affecté à la base de Toulouse-Francazal dans une unité de bombardiers où il doit suivre des cours de formation. Cette situation à l'arrière lui déplaît : il veut voler. Volontaire pour la chasse, il est cependant refusé à la visite médicale en octobre 1939. Fin novembre, malgré ses 39 ans et son état de santé, il obtient enfin d'être affecté au 2/33, le groupe de reconnaissance basé à Orconte (dans la Marne) qui vole sur une quinzaine de Potez 63. C'est dans la vieille ferme, reconvertie en PC, que Saint-Exupéry retrouve le 2 décembre 1939 l'escadrille La Hache à Orconte. Le capitaine Antoine de Saint-Exupéry est immédiatement mis dans le bain par le lieutenant Gavoille, chargé de son instruction qui dira : « Bien que n'ayant pas l'expérience des avions modernes, Saint-Exupéry s'adapte très facilement au Potez 63-7 ». Ce mois de décembre 1939 est particulièrement vigoureux. Les sorties sont rares et réfrigérantes : Saint-Exupéry vole à 10 000 mètres par moins 51 degrés dans des combinaisons chauffantes. Le 18 janvier 1940, le 2 /33 est transféré à Monceau-le-Waast et est confié au commandement d'Henri Alias. Les mois suivants, la situation de Saint-Exupéry est plus délicate et il doit plaider pour son maintien dans le groupe 2 /33. Son âge et ses erreurs de pilotage jouent contre lui. Cependant, ses arguments convainquent et pendant tout le mois de mars il essaye et convoie les nouveaux Bloch 174 qui sortent des chaînes. La guerre éclair se poursuit et le 2 /33 doit constater la progression allemande dans les Ardennes. Le 10 mai 1940 les troupes allemandes attaquent la Belgique. Presque tous les pilotes sont en permission ! Saint-Exupéry rejoint son unité qui, du Bourget (17-21 mai 1940), puis d'Orly (21 mai 1940) et enfin de Nangis ( 3-10 juin 1940) multiplie les reconnaissances au-dessus d'Arras, d'Amiens, de Péronne, de Soissons, de Château-Thierry. Ces missions lui offrent la trame de son livre Pilote de Flight to Arras. Mi-juin 1940, le capitaine Alias fait partir ses escadrilles vers l'Afrique du Nord. Saint-Exupéry convoie un Farman et, via Perpignan, rejoint Oran et Alger. Il poursuit vers Mers et Kébir où il se trouve le 3 juillet 1940 lorsque la Royal Navy attaque la flotte française. Démobilisé le 4 août 1940, Saint-Exupéry embarque pour rejoindre la France. Et le 21 décembre 1940, il part en exil aux Etats-Unis.

        Poésie et vérité 1942

      Neuchâtel, Edition de la Baconnière, Collection des Cahiers du Rhône, 1943 In-12 (19,3 x 14,5 cm), broché, couv. imprimé, 108 pp., 1 f. n. ch. Seconde édition augmentée, en partie orginale. L'un des 12 premiers ex. num. imprimés sur vélin du Marais (le nôtre portant le n° III). Important envoi autographe de Paul Eluard à son éditeur : " à Albert Béguin avec ma gratitude et mon admiration, Paul Eluard. Genève 20.VI.45" Les poèmes de la seconde partie, "N", "Façons de parler, façons de voir", "Hasards noirs des voyages", "Rêves", "La Tête inerte" et le premier poèmes en fac-similé autographe "L'Ane"ne figuraient pas dans l'édition de 1942 à la Main à plume. Albert Béguin, né le 17 juillet 1901 à La Chaux-de-Fonds, Suisse, mort le 3 mai 1957 à Rome, est un écrivain, critique et éditeur suisse. Il s'intéresse à la montée du nazisme et dénonce le rôle des universitaires, les camps de travail et la persécution contre les juifs. En 1934, Il obtient un poste d'enseignant au collège Jean-Calvin et, en 1937, soutient sa thèse de doctorat à l'Université de Genève : Le rêve chez les romantiques allemands et dans la poésie française moderne. De 1937 à 1946, il occupe la chaire de littérature française à l'Université de Bâle. Dès 1942, Albert Béguin crée et dirige les Cahiers du Rhône (la Baconnière). Il réussit ainsi, en publiant des uvres de Charles Péguy, Louis Aragon, Paul Eluard Pierre Emmanuel, Loys Masson, Pierre Jean Jouve, Guy Lévis Mano, Jean Cayrol ou Jules Supervielle, à soutenir, pendant la guerre, la lutte des écrivains français pour les valeurs de la France au cur de l'Europe menacée. Il collabore à d'autres publications suisses résistantes, comme la collection Le Cri de la France (Librairie de lUniversité de Fribourg) où il publie sa célèbre traduction de la Quête du Graal. En 1946, il retourne à Paris. À la mort d'Emmanuel Mounier en 1950, il occupe jusqu'à sa mort la direction de la revue Esprit.
