        Autograph letter signed in full to an unidentified male correspondent regarding the production of his opera Bolivar

      Completed in 1943 during his American exile, Bolivar premièred at the Opéra de Paris seven years later, on May 12, 1950. As this and other letters indicate, Milhaud had originally composed his opera to suit American tastes, and "worked hard to convince American opera houses to take it on." In April 1944 he wrote to music librarian Harold Spivacke: "I played my opera Bolivar to the Metropolitan. They seemed (as Lily Pons told me) very interested, but they do not have the money to produce it." (Annegret Fauser in Sounds of War: Music in the United States during World War II, pp. 194-195.) It therefore seems likely that this letter was addressed to Edward Johnson, General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera from 1935 until 1950. "... the subject of Bolivar suited me admirably because I wanted a libretto full of action, with a masculine hero. Moreover, the central idea of the play was that of liberation and freedom, which in 1943 occupied my every thought... In May 1950 the Paris Opéra put on my Bolivar... The Opéra's best singers took part: Jeannine Micheau, Hélène Bouvier, Roger Bourdin, and Giraudeau. The production by Max de Rieux was superb, and Fernard Léger's ten sets again attested to his great theatrical artistry..." Milhaud: Notes without Music An Autobiography pp. 301 and 314. Milhaud "was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. An interesting assemblage of documents relating to this war-time work.. 1 page. Large octavo. Dated Mills College, Oakland, California, September 9, 1943. In black ink. In French (with translation). Milhaud asks his correspondent if he is still interested in mounting a production of his opera Bolivar. The composer would like to meet him in New York to show him the score. "When I had the pleasure of seeing you last December, you seemed interested in the possibility of producing my opera Bolivar. My score is finished. I intend to come to New York in December to show it to you." Slightly worn and soiled; creased at folds; small staple holes to upper left edge; small ink stain to verso. Together with: - A typed cast list. 1 page. Large octavo. On onion skin. In French. With autograph annotations in English in black ink describing the relative importance of each character. Slightly worn and creased; small staple holes to upper left margin. - A typed list of scenes describing the important events in Bolivar's life. 1 page. Large octavo. On onion skin. In English. A brief biography of Jules Supervielle, author of the play upon which the opera is based, is given at the head. With autograph annotations in English describing the décor of each scene in black ink to left margin. Slightly worn and creased; edges slightly browned; several small staple holes to upper left margin.

        The Fountainhead

      Indianapolis and New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943 First edition, first printing. Publisher's red cloth, lettered in gilt to the front board and spine; in the first issue dust jacket, with sixteen titles to the back panel, lettered in red, white and silver. Near fine, with light wear and rubbing to the extremities, a hint of faint spotting to the rear endpapers, former owner's pencil inscription to the front free endpaper; unclipped dust jacket, with some creasing to the front panel and spine, some toning to the spine, light soiling to the panels, small chips to the spine ends, light rubbing to the folds. Overall, a bright and pleasing copy in the rare original dust jacket, scarce in any condition. Housed in a custom brown folding box with brown morocco spine. The Fountainhead is Ayn Rand's first commercially successful novel and is centered on her philosophy of Objectivism, which maintains that individualism exists outside of consciousness and that the each person's moral life purpose should be one's own personal happiness. She continued to develop this philosophy in later novels, including Atlas Shrugged. The Fountainhead tells of protagonist Howard Roark, an architect determined to stay true to his personal ideas and ideals, even if it means rejection by mainstream society. As the dust jacket explains, "This book is based on a challenging belief in the importance of selfishness, on the provocative idea that man's ego is the fountainhead of human progress." Appropriately, this novel about individual struggle in the face of conformity had its own struggle to be published; The Fountainhead was rejected by thirteen publishers before being published by Bobbs-Merrill. The novel received a lack of critical success, but managed to become a popular best-seller, largely due to its fans' word of mouth.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Lady in the Lake

      NY: Knopf, 1943. Bound in light green cloth, stamped in forest green. Only flaws to book are a bit of dustiness to edges and a small number 5649 written on the ffep.

        Group portrait taken at the famous Casablanca Conference - signed by the participants.

      Casablanca: 14-24 January, , 1943. Original photograph on card mount, image 250 x 305 mm, overall size 430 x 455 mm, now window-mounted and handsomely presented, glazed in a dark wood frame with gilt slip. The photographic mount has a degree of damp-staining, with slight encroachment onto the image, and a few creases and cracks (lateral crease across the image in the area of the knees of Roosevelt and Churchill) , now professionally cleaned, stabilised and masked by a double-window mount isolating the image and signatures, the latter are, in the main, strong and clear. A sensitively restored and carefully presented example of this uncommon and highly desirable photographic "souvenir" presentation. Rare signed photograph of Churchill, Roosevelt and their Chiefs of Staff at the Casablanca Conference, showing Churchill and Roosevelt seated in the garden of the Anfa Hotel, Casablanca, with, standing behind them, the British and American Joint Chiefs of Staff (King, Marshall and Arnold for the United States and Pound, Brooke and Portal for Britain). The officers present are, from left to right: Lieutenant-General Brehon B. Somervell (head of US Army Services of Supply), General H.H. Arnold, Admiral Ernest J. King, Lieutenant-General Sir Hastings Ismay (Churchill's Chief of Staff), General George Marshall (directly behind Roosevelt), Admiral of the Fleet Sir Dudley Pound, General Sir Alan Brooke (directly behind Churchill), Air Chief Marshal Sir Charles Portal and Commodore Lord Louis Mountbatten (Head of Combined Operations). This is one of the most memorable images from the historic Casablanca Conference of 14-24 January 1943; it is particularly appealing in that Roosevelt and Churchill are facing each other and clearly locked in conversation. FDR wears a mourning band on his left arm (in memory of his mother, who had died a couple of months before Pearl Harbor) and Churchill clutches a trademark cigar. "The work of the conference was primarily military - deciding on the invasion of Sicily (after completion of the North African campaign) rather than an immediate invasion of western Europe, apportioning forces for the Pacific theatre and outlining major lines of attack in the Far East, and agreeing on the concentrated bombing of Germany. Roosevelt and Churchill also found time to discuss nuclear bomb research, to consider competing claims between Henri Giraud and Charles de Gaulle for the leadership of the French war effort against the Axis powers, and, most important of all, to demand an 'unconditional surrender' from Germany, Italy, and Japan" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). Casablanca also brought Churchill and Roosevelt closer at a personal level - on the closing day of the conference "That night, at dinner, Roosevelt and Churchill made what the doctor [Sir Charles Wilson] described as 'affectionate little speeches to each other, and Winston sang'" (Martin Gilbert, Road to Victory: Winston S. Churchill 1941-1945, 1986, p. 311).

        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.

        Original Typescript; THE CASE OF THE SMOKING CHIMNEY (with Holograph Corrections and Text Added By Gardner, Sometimes Adding an Entire page)

      - 4to. 258 typed pages (one side) with added text and corrections by the author throughout, often times, an entire page in manuscript. The story was originally titled "THE CLUE OF THE SMOKED CHIMNEY" and was later changed for publication to "THE CASE OF THE SMOKING CHIMNEY" [together with] a fine copy of "THE CASE OF THE SMOKING CHIMNEY" , New York, William Morrow and Co. 1943 (first edition), bound in gray cloth lettered in red, in chipped and worn pictorial dust jacket. Both the typescript and book presented in a custom made 1/2 morocco clamshell which presents the book on one side and the manuscript on the other. A unique presentation. Long before Gardner died, he arranged for his manuscripts and books to be donated to the University of Texas, in Austin. They have 140 manuscripts in their collection and we have seen none coming to market; therefore, one must conclude that very few, if any are privately held.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U. ("H. Hesse").

      O. O., [nach 1943]. - 2 SS. 8vo. An Margarete Philips in Konstanz über sein Buch "Das Glasperlenspiel", das 1943 in Zürich erschienen war: "[.] Mein Buch, das mich fast zwölf Jahre lang begleitet und beschäftigt hat, erschien zu einer Zeit, wo für dergleichen kein Raum auf Erden ist: ich will nicht davon reden, daß ich es ja nur verschenken konnte, und dabei verhungern kann, nein, fast überall fehlt auch die Bereitschaft und Echo, die Leute sind gehetzt, haben keine Zeit, haben das Denken, und oft auch das Fühlen verlernt, und so verdoppelt sich um mich her die Leere, die das Weggeben einer vieljährigen Arbeit ohnehin zurückläßt. Ich konnte das eigentlich voraussehen, es konnte kaum anders sein. Ich bereue es auch nicht; das Buch mußte gedruckt werden, da es sonst zu vielen Zufällen und Gefahren ausgesetzt war; jetzt existiert es, es kann nicht mehr vernichtet werden und kann mich überleben. Also ist eigentlich alles in Ordnung, und dabei wollen wir uns begnügen. Daß dasrüber hinaus einige wenige male [sic] das Buch auch in Hände fiel, die es anzufassen wissen, und in Seelen, von denen ein verstehendes Echo kommt, ist ein Geschenk [.]". - Der Briefkopf mit einer gedruckten Zeichnung von Günter Böhmer (Hesse an einem Lagerfeuer kniend).
