        Edgar Burroughs

      November 11, 1943. Typed Letter Signed "Papa" in blue pencil on his personal letterhead, one page, 8.5" x 11", Honolulu, November 11,1943 to his daughter Joan Burroughs Pierce (1908 - 1972). Usual folds, else fine condition. Burroughs writes, "enclosing modest Christmas remembrances for the children [not present]. If you see Jack, tell him that I received that booklet he sent me that I wrote him recently I had not received. It is bully. / Had supper with Phil Bird yesterday at the officers mess of the outfit to which he is attached. He is still hoping for a letter from you. / Now things seem to be moving faster in the Pacific, maybe the war will be over sooner than I had expected. I hope so. I want to live long enough to see all you children again. Lots of love! / (signed) Papa."At the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Burroughs had become a resident of Hawaii. Despite his advanced age, he applied to become a war correspondent. The request was granted, and Burroughs became the oldest war correspondent for the U.S. during the Second World War. In 1945 he moved back to California but died only five years later after suffering from poor health.

        Newsmap for the Armed Forces. Monday, October 25, 1943. Target Berlin. 215th Week of the War - 97th Week of U.S. Participation.

      Washington, D.C. Army Air Forces. 10-25- 1943. Volume II No. 27. Color poster / map, 47 x 35 inches (120 x 90 cm), folding as issued to 9 x 12 inches.Fine example of this huge map. (IMAGE is a STOCK IMAGE for this very large piece). One side shows a hemispherical view with Berlin at the centre. The map maker is F.E. Manning, one of the distinguished news illustrators of the war, working in a style very similar to that of Richard Edes Harrison. There is a paper scale at the lower edge which was intended to be clipped to measure distances of places on the map from Berlin. Text reads: "This map is a photographic view of the world with the center at Berlin. Thus, with the detachable scale, distances can be measured along any line running thru Berlin. It should be noted that an inch at the center represents less mileage than an inch closer to the edges. The detachable scale has been designed to compensate for this and should be used only with the center on Berlin. The photographic process used in making this map makes all distances measured with the tape approximate only. Distances are shown in statute miles. Lines between key cities do not represent regular air routes in all cases. They show distances between points that do not fall on a line going thru the center of the projection." The other side has 4 two-color maps: Bridgeheads across the DNEPR river; map of northern Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia area; map fo the eastern Mediterranean area; Operations begin in Burma. Another Newsmap "Target Berlin" was also issued; two important and striking propaganda maps of the World War II era.

This copy was signed, inscribed and dated by Samuel Barber: To my boss and friend Dan Saidenberg Samuel Barber June 1944. 26 cm. x 19cm. Front cover chipped and detached, spine chipped, otherwise good. Samuel Barber (1910 1981) was one of the most celebrated composers of the twentieth century. Barber was a triple prodigy in voice, piano, and composition, entering the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia at age 14. Best remembered internationally for his hauntingly beautiful Adagio for Strings, first championed by Arturo Toscanini, his music has been used at times of national and international crisis to honor the dead and console the living. Who could ever forget Barbers music at Princess Graces funeral ? The First Symphony dates from 1936 and bears the opus number 9 on the first page of the score. The first performance was by Bernardino Molinari and the Augusteo Orchestra in Rome, December 13, 1936. The first American performance was given by Arthur Rodzinski and the Cleveland Orchestra, January 22, 1937. Samuel Barber enjoyed the distinction for winning the Pulitzer Prize twice, as well as distinguished commissions, such as writing the opera for the opening of the new Metropolitan Opera House in 1966 (Anthony and Cleopatra). In 1942, Barber joined the Army Air Corps. The dedicatee here is Daniel Saidenberg, a violoncellist in the Philadelphia Orchestra starting in 1926, and in 1930 he was a cellist in the Chicago Symphony. Saidenberg was the first cellist to win the prestigious Walter W. Naumburg International Competition, after which he pursued a solo career; and, in later years, he was a Manhattan gallery owner, known for his sponsorship of faculty recitals at New Yorks Juilliard School. He died in 1997 at age 90.

      New York, American Jewish Conference.(1943). First edition. Original paper wrappers. 4to. About 8 pages each issue; 28 cm. Folded in half like a newspaper. Daily during the conference from 1943-1947. The American Jewish Conference "was an ad hoc organization that first met in Pittsburg in January 1943, and had its first official conference in August that year [these issues are from that conference]. The initial meeting included delegates from thirty-two national Jewish organizations. It was called to decide upon the role that the American Jewish community would play in representing Jewish demands after the war and helping to build Jewish Palestine. The result was the creation of the American Jewish Conference, which consisted of sixty-four Jewish groups, including American Jewish Committee; it constituted the most representative gathering of American Jews ever" (Wikipedia 2017) . Reflecting the concerns of this very middle-of-the-Holocaust period, articles cover the proceedings of the conference, as well as topics such as "Action Taken on Rescue and Postwar Status of Jews, " Conference Adopts Palestine Resolution, " and "Solemn Memorial Service Held for Martyred Jews. " "During its five day assembly at the Hotel Waldorf-Astoria, New York, which began on Sunday afternoon, August 29, the Conference, composed of 502 elected representatives of the Jews of America, considered and recommended action 'on problems relating to the rights and status of Jews in the postwar world' as well as 'upon all matters looking to the implementation of the rights of the Jewish people with respect to Palestine. ' The latter took the form of a resolution demanding the fulfillment of the Balfour Declaration and of the Mandate for Palestine 'whose intent and underlying purpose was to constitute Palestine as the Jewish Commonwealth. '" SUBJECT(S) : Jews, Congresses, Palestine. Significant browning to pages, but solid, not fragile. Significant wear at paper fold that affects text. Minimal pencil markings that do not affect text. Good condition overall. (HOLO2-134-30)

        Schachnovelle.

      Stockholm: Bermann-Fischer Verlag. First Edition. . Excellent condition first edition with only very minor signs of external wear.. First Edition. Stockholm, Bermann-Fischer Verlag, 1943. 11 cm x 17.5 cm. 117 pages. Original hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in Protective Mylar. Excellent condition first edition with only very minor signs of external wear. Die Schachnovelle ist eine Novelle von Stefan Zweig, die er zwischen 1938 und 1941 im brasilianischen Exil schrieb. Es ist sein letztes und zugleich bekanntestes Werk. Die Erstausgabe erschien am 7. Dezember 1942 in Buenos Aires in einer limitierten Auflage von 300 Exemplaren. In Europa wurde das Werk im Dezember 1943 im Stockholmer Exilverlag von Gottfried Bermann Fischer verlegt. 1944 erschien in New York die erste Übersetzung ins Englische. In Deutschland hat sich das Buch seit dem Erscheinen der Taschenbuchausgabe 1974 zu einem Dauerbestseller entwickelt. Mittlerweile wurden weit über 1,2 Millionen Exemplare verkauft. Das Buch wird vielfach als Schullektüre verwendet und wird auch von einigen Literaturwissenschaftlern bis heute geschätzt, obwohl es in der wissenschaftlichen Germanistik nicht gleich stark rezipiert wurde wie von der breiten Öffentlichkeit. 2012 bezeichnete der Germanist Rüdiger Görner die Novelle als einen "Glücksfall ausgereifter Erzählkunst". Im Zentrum der Handlung steht die Konfrontation der psychischen Abgründe, die ein Gefangener der Gestapo erlebt hat, mit der oberflächlichen Lebenswelt wohlhabender Reisender in der Rahmenhandlung. Das Schachspiel spielt anfangs nur die Rolle einer bloßen Unterhaltung bzw. eines einträglichen Sports und erhält erst durch die Figur des Gefangenen Dr. B., der sich während seiner Haftzeit intensiv mit Schach beschäftigt hat, seine tiefere Bedeutung.

        A Method for the Calculation of the Zeta-Function.

      C. F. Hodgson and Son, London 1943 - First edition, journal issue in the original printed wrappers, of Turing?s ground-breaking work outlining a method (which he hoped could be performed by a machine) to decide the most famous open problem in mathematics, the so-called Riemann hypothesis. This is a conjecture about the location of the zeros of the ?Riemann zeta function? ? it asserts that, apart from some ?trivial? zeros, they all lie on a certain ?critical line.? If true, this would have enormous implications for the study of prime numbers. Turing had worked on the zeta function since 1939 and he aimed to calculate the zeros using a mechanical computer. ?The Turing archive contains a sketch of a proposal, in 1939, to build an analog computer that would calculate approximate values for the Riemann zeta-function on the critical line. His ingenious method was published in 1943 [as the present work]? (Downey, p. 11). Although he received a grant to build his zeta-function machine, the outbreak of World War II and Turing?s role in it as cryptanalyst postponed the work, and it was not until four years later that he was actually able to publish his first paper on this important subject. Rare on the market in unrestored original printed wrappers (we know of only one copy at auction, in the Weinreb Computer Collection, Bloomsbury Book Auctions, 28 October 1999).The Riemann zeta function is defined as the sum of an infinite series?(s) = 1/1s + 1/2s + 1/3s + 1/4s + ? This actually makes sense when s is any complex number (except s = 1, when the sum is infinite). It is known that ?(s) = 0 when s = ?2, ?4, ?6, ? ? these are called the ?trivial zeros? The Riemann hypothesis (RH) is the assertion that all the non-trivial zeros are complex numbers of the form s = ½ + t?-1, where t is a real number ? these complex numbers form a line in the complex plane, called the ?critical line? The RH, first put forward by Bernhard Riemann in 1859, is known to be true for the first 1013 non-trivial zeros, but remains unproven. ?The RH is widely regarded as the most famous unsolved problem in mathematics. It was one of the 23 famous problems selected by [David] Hilbert in 1900 as among the most important in mathematics, and it is one of the seven Millennium Problems selected by the Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000 as the most important for the 21st century? (Hedjhal & Odlyzko, p. 266).?The first computations of zeros of the zeta function were performed by Riemann, and likely played an important role in his posing of the RH as a result likely to be true. His computations were carried out by hand, using an advanced method that is known today as the Riemann-Siegel formula. Both the method and Riemann?s computations that utilized it remained unknown to the world-at-large until the early 1930s, when they were found in Riemann?s unpublished papers by C. L. Siegel ? In the mid-1930s, after Siegel?s publication of the Riemann-Siegel formula, [the Oxford mathematician] E. C. Titchmarsh obtained a grant for a larger computation. With the assistance of L. J. Comrie, tabulating machines, some ?computers? (as the mostly female operators of such machinery were called in those days), and the recently published algorithm, Titchmarsh established that the 1041 nontrivial zero with 0 t ibid., p. 268).?Turing encountered the Riemann zeta function as a student, and developed a life-long fascination with it. Though his research in this area was not a major thrust of his career, he did make a number of pioneering contributions? (ibid., p. 266). ?Apparently he had decided that the Riemann hypothesis was probably false, if only because such great efforts had failed to prove it. Its falsity would mean that the zeta-function did take the value zero at some point which was off the special line, in which case this point could be located by brute force, just by calculating enough values of the zeta-function ? There were two aspects to the problem. Riemann?s zeta-function was defined as the sum of an infinite number of t

        THE LITTLE PRINCE

      Reynal & Hitchcock, New York 1943 - Signed. One of 525 signed numbered copies, this being #365, with the number penned on the spine of the dustjacket as well as on the limitation page. The binding has a trace of wear to the corners; the dustjacket is price-clipped, with loss to the spine ends affecting the "T" in the title. In the Grolier One Hundred Books Famous in Children's Literature, it is noted that "Saint-Exupery's complex personality was mirrored in the melancholy charm of the Little Prince". A year after this signed issue, Saint-Exupery disappeared over the Mediterranean while flying on reconnaissance. (Grolier, 100 Children's Literature, 88). Very Good binding / Very Good dust jacket.

        Manuscript Diary.

      - 1944 1943 - pencil and black ink on grey-lined paper, [unpaginated], 8vo, original quarter red cloth with blue cloth sides, blue-speckled edges, some general wear, good . A lengthy and detailed diary, written almost daily from January 1943 to December 1944 by Regimental Sergeant-Major Ward of the 56th Heavy Regiment, Royal Artillery, for his wife Elsi/Elsa(?). Ward diligently records the names (occasionally misspelled) of every town and village he passes through, as the Regiment provides artillery support to battles such as Longstop Hill and Medjez el Bab in North Africa and the Volturno Line and Monte Cassino in Italy. His entries are suffused with a pride in his work and sympathy for the PBI (Poor Bloody Infantry), but steer clear of the gory details of war - even after a short hospital stay following a gunshot wound to the arm, gained at the start of Germany's Operation Ochsenkopf. In a moment of particular understatement, he sums up the infamous Battle of Romini with 'what a do', before adding as a 'point of interest we have fired 546 tons of ammo in the last 7 days'. Ward shares his opinions on the weather, food, picture shows and local sights: Rome is grand, Florence disappointing. He marvels at the sight of a lifetime: 'Naples burning on one side & Vesuvius throwing out red hot ash on the other side', but there is wistfulness too. Overlooking the harbour at Bizerte reminds him of the view from Beachy Head looking down on Eastbourne, and he celebrates his wife's birthday with 'some daffs stuck in a bottle which of course keep reminding me of home'. The entries grow shorter out of necessity towards the end of 1944 as Ward reaches the end of his notebook. Squeezed onto the final line of the final page: 'This ends the diary, hope if all's well that I shall be able to read it at home one day. Here's to the New Year - 1945'. The 56th Heavy Regiment famously included among its numbers the comedian Spike Milligan, until he was wounded in the heavy and protracted fighting of the Battle of Monte Cassino; neither man mentions the other in his diaries that we can find, although Ward makes note of the direct hit suffered by Milligan's 19th Battery on 18th January 1944. It seems likely the diarist is Warrant Officer Class I (Regimental Sergeant-Major) Douglas John Ward, who received a Military Medal in July 1944. ('Mick tells me that he saw RSM Ward name in the Honours List in the Times, I expect that is me', 30/07/44).

        Baumkrone.

      - Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, verso signiert, bezeichnet und datiert &#132;C. Hummel. Auf Rügen 63." 33,3:23,4 cm. &#150; Mit einigen kleineren Wasser- sowie wenige Braunfleckchen. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Inv. 203. Sehr souverän gezeichnete Baumstudie. Der Landschaftsmaler und Radierer Carl Hummel war 1834-1842 Schüler an der Weimarer Zeichenakademie bei dem Maler und Radierer F. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878), der Hummels spezielle Vorliebe für die &#132;heroische Landschaft" prägte. Gemeinsam mit Preller unternahm er 1839-1841 Studienreisen nach Holland, Norwegen, Rügen und nach Tirol. Neben dem Studium bei Preller machte er zudem bei J.B. Schwerdgeburth (1759&#150;nach 1822) eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher. 1842 reiste er nach Italien; in Rom, auf Capri und Sizilien hielt er sich längere Zeit auf. 1844 kehrte er in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1845-1846 besuchte er erneut Rom, danach reiste er in die Schweiz. 1855 erfolgte auf Einladung des Erbprinzen Georg von Meiningen ein Aufenthalt auf dessen Villa Carlotta am Comer See. 1859 wurde er als Professor an die Weimarer Zeichenschule berufen. 1869 unternahm er eine Reise nach Korsika, in den folgenden Jahren jedoch meist nur noch Reisen in die Mittelgebirge. Hummel, Sohn des gefeierten Pianisten und Komponisten Johann Nepomuk Hummel, zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern seiner Heimatstadt. Sein Vater war von Maria Pawlowna (1786-1859), Großfürstin von Rußland, Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar und Großherzogin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach 1818 als Kapellmeister nach Weimar berufen worden, eine Stellung, die er bis 1838 innehatte. Die Großfürstin, die nach ihrer Heirat 1804 aus St. Petersburg nach Weimar kam, förderte mittels ihrer reichen Mitgift in besonderer Weise Musik, Theater, Bildende Kunst und Literatur und verhalf damit dem zwar geistig und literarisch hoch entwickelten, aber verarmten Hof zu neuem Aufschwung. Auch Carl erhielt bekanntermaßen von der Großfürstin einige Aufträge.

        Women][World War II] Photo Album Depicting a Husband and Wife's Military Service in World War II.

      1943- ca. 1948., Harlingen, Texas; Boca Chica Key, Florida; France And Elsewhere 1943 - 10¼" x 13½". String tied brown faux leather over boards. 64 pages with 342 black and white photographs inserted into corner mounts; 9" x 11" pencil sketch of a WAC laid in. Most photos measure 2½" x 2½" to 3½" x 5" and most are captioned. Album very good plus with moderate corner wear and two gouges on the back board, a few leaves partially detached; photos generally near fine or better, 14 are lacking. This is a photo album documenting the wartime and early postwar years of a husband and wife who served in World War II. Len and Jessie Hoover were married November 16, 1940. Jessie was a WAC who likely served stateside in the Army Air Force. Len enlisted in 1943 and was sent to radio school after basic training. He was part of the 90th Infantry Division that liberated the Flossenburg concentration camp in April 1945. According to contemporary newspaper accounts, Lin was part of a small group asked to tour the camp with instructions to remember all that they saw, and was subsequently asked to testify at the Nuremberg Trials. The album starts with shots of Jessie in basic training at Camp Ruston in Louisiana as well as attending the United Radio and Television School in Newark, New Jersey. Several excellent shots here show groups of WACS marching, standing at attention and going to class. We know she was stationed at Harlingen and Boca Chica and photos here show her and friends around the base and in town, as well as relaxing and interacting with the men. At least 60 photos in the album feature women in uniform and a fair amount show them in civilian clothes during R&R. One great shot shows women in military dress at an NCO club, cigarettes in hands, the table covered in beer bottles. The military photos of Len begin with him at infantry training at Camp Gordon Georgia and show men lined up with rifles and standing at attention. There's a series of approximately 40 photos showing him in France near the end of, and just after, the war. These photos mostly show the men at rest, and some show them at the Moselle River as well as a series of shots of a bridge that they had to guard after taking it along with 200 German prisoners. Alas, none of the photos here show Lin at Flossenburg. There are also around 60 images showing the Hoovers' civilian life, posing with friends and family as well as shots of their young children after the war. An excellent collection of well composed military photos, featuring a WAC and a soldier who testified against Nazis in their war crimes trials.
