        An Address By Winston S Churchill Prime Minister of Great Britain Delivered Before Members of the Congress of the United States - 19 May 1943, signed by Churchill

      Stamford Connecticut: The Overbrook Press, 1943. Limited Edition, signed. Hardcover. This is the scarce limited edition of Churchill's 19 May 1943 address to the U.S. Congress, the only copy signed by Churchill we have offered. Churchill's signature in black appears on the first free endpaper. This was Churchill's second address to Congress, seventeen long months of war having passed in the interval since his first, just after Pearl Harbor. Churchill's address came only days after the Allies' total victory in Tunisia. Allied victory in North Africa not only removed Nazi Germany from Africa, but also cleared the way for invasion of Sicily and opened a vital route via North Africa for Stalin to be sent promised supplies - politically important, particularly given the strain placed upon Allied relations by discovery of the Katyn massacre. Churchill departed for the four-day voyage to the United States aboard the Queen Mary on 6 May. From the 11th on, Churchill was with Roosevelt in Washington and at "Shangri-La", the President's Allegheny mountains retreat, discussing and planning the course of the war. Churchill nonetheless took considerable time to prepare this address to Congress. "Churchill spent most of May 18 preparing the speech for the United States Congress. Beginning that morning at 9:30, he dictated until 4:30 in the afternoon... There was then further dictation from midnight until 2:30 in the morning: a total of nine and a half hours dictation." (Gilbert, Volume VII, pages 408-409) Churchill's task was to continue to reinforce common cause, unified strategy, and mutual resolve. "I do not intend to be responsible for any suggestion that the war is won or will soon be over." Churchill cautioned, invoking, for his American audience, the prolonged outcome of the U.S. Civil War. "No one after Gettysburg doubted which way the dread balance of war would incline. Yet far more blood was shed after the Union victory at Gettysburg than in all the fighting which went before." Churchill concluded: "By singleness of purpose, by steadfastness of conduct, by tenacity and endurance, such as we have so far displayed, by these, and only by these, can we discharge our duty to the future of the world and to the destiny of man." This edition was limited to 600 copies specifically for members of Congress, published in September 1943, and is the first volume appearance of this speech. This edition is both more scarce and more elaborate than the publisher's limited edition of Churchill's first address to Congress. The binding is black paper covered boards with a red, gilt-stamped label inset on the front cover. The binding measures 10.5 x 7.5 inches. The contents are printed in red and black on thick stock. The two-page Colophon Note includes excerpts from Churchill's 8 June 1943 address to the House of Commons upon his return from Washington. This signed copy is in good condition overall, sound with some cosmetic wear and blemishes. The fragile black paper covered boards remain firmly attached with unbumped corners and the red front cover label is fully intact. The boards show some modest overall scuffing with a 1.5 inch split to the lower hinge, slight blistering of the paper at the lower left front cover, and a small amount of a waxy blue substance adhering to the bottom margin of the red label and the black paper directly below. The contents remain bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks apart from the author's signature. Churchill's signature is distinct and clearly legible, with only minor age-toning. The blank endsheets show light soiling and we find a tiny moisture stain at the upper blank margin, as well as a creased upper corner at the final free endpaper. Protecting the slim volume is a custom clamshell case in full black morocco (no cloth surfaces either internally or externally) with raised spine bands, marbled paper interior lining, and the date "1943" in gilt on the lower spine. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A181.4, Woods A93(b).

        Spifire Pilot

      London: Faber and Faber Limited,, 1943. Octavo. Original sky blue cloth, red lettered spine. Portrait frontispiece and 6 plates. Ownership inscription and note on front free endpaper. Spine sunned and rolled. First edition, fourth impression; originally published in June 1942. With an autograph letter signed from the author to "Thompson", thanking him for his letter and apologising for his slowness in replying as he has "been away", saying that he will "certainly come to Wigton on January 9 - the only difficulty being transport, as I have no car now and being Sunday I don't suppose the buses will be much use", then enquiring if "any of your people come out from Carlisle by car?"; he closes by way of a postscript: "Excuse paper - written at aerodrome". Dated from RAF Kingstown, Carlisle, 17 December 1943 and written on a sheet roughly torn from an exercise book. A wonderfully evocative wartime letter from a noted Spitfire ace, who was killed a year and a day later. Flight Lieutenant David Moore Crook DFC was a member of 609 Squadron and was involved in the Battle of Britain. During his career he was credited with six "kills". On 18 December 1944 he took off from Dyce in Scotland on a high level photographic sortie; his plane went into the sea near Aberdeen and his body was never recovered.

        L'etre et le neant (Being and Nothingness)

      Librairie Gallimard, Paris 1943 - SARTRE, Jean Paul. L'etre et le neant (Being and Nothingness). Librairie Gallimard, Paris 1943 - Half-title + TP + Dedication page + half-title + [11]-722 + [723]-[724] = Table des Matieres + 2 leaves, Octavo. First Edition (Douglas 327; Contat 43/34a)Along with the Critique de la raison dialectique, this is one of the two major philosophical works by the Nobel laureate and dominant intellectual force in the cultural life of mid-century France. The very rare first edition, first impression from "Bibliothèque des idées", printed on 25th of June 1943 ("Le vingt-cinq juin mil neuf cent quarante-trois" (colophon) ), with the printed dedication "au CASTOR" (i.e. for Simone de Beauvoir"). While there is considerable controversy regarding Sartre's technical and systematic contributions and to their ultimate place in the history of philosophy, it remains true that "the extraordinary fecundity and energy of Sartre's mind must be recognized. Again and again, when he seems most deeply involved in some hopelessly sterile logomachy, he will offer an insight that make the tortuous complications of his terminology a small price to pay in turn. In this respect he is like Hegel, whom, among the great philosophers, he may most resemble" (Frederick A. Olafson). CONDITION: Original paper covers. Clean pages throughout. Light browning to spine. Review copy with "SP" SERVICE DE PRESSE printed to title page and rear wrapper. Housed in a cloth clam shell box. Overall, a very good or possibly near fine copy of a delicate and fragile work.

        Fabrik: Ein Bildepos der Technik / Factory: A Photoessay on Technology

      Erlenbach-Zurich: Rotapfel-Verlag, 1943. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. Introductory text by Arnold Burgaurer in German. An interesting collection of black and white photographs all taken in Switzerland in the early 1940s. While the rest of Europe was undergoing the massive upheavals of World War II, Tuggener was able to take these modernist industrial images and portraits in the calm of a neutral country. A very near fine copy in brown cloth boards in an about very good dust jacket that has some edge wear, small tears, some rubbing and other wear as well. Original caption list laid in along with a contemporary publisher brochure as well as a gallery biography sheet from 1982. Despite the small flaws, a very nice copy of a powerful book.

        Komponist (1864-1949): Masch. Briefkarte mit eigenh U. (voller Namenszug).

      Wien, Juni 1943.. Quer-Kl.- 8°. 1 S. - Mit Kuvert (Poststempel: 16. 6. 43).. "Für die liebenswürdigen Glückwünsche zu meinem Geburtstage [11. Juni], spreche ich meinen verbindlichsten Dank aus. // Wien, Juni 1943 // [eigenhändig:] Richard Strauss" - // - Das Kuvert (adressiert an einen Oberlehrer in "Grossteinback / Steiermark") mit Wiener Poststempel u. Briefmarken "Deutsches Reich" mit Hitler - Portrait trägt auf der Rückseite den Absenderstempel von Strauss: "Dr. Rich. Strauss / Wien III / 40, / Jaquingasse 10." - Die dortige Richard-Strauss-Villa nannten die Wiener das "Strauss-Schlössel" (heute Botschaftsgebäude der Niederlande). Die Villa wurde 1922-1926 von Michael Rosenauer im Auftrag der Stadt Wien erbaut und Richard Strauss geschenkweise überlassen. - // - Ab 1917 hatte Straus die von Max Reinhardt und Hugo von Hofmannsthal begonnene Initiative zur Gründung der Salzburg Festspiele unterstützt. 1920 wurden die ersten Festspiele mit dem "Jedermann" eröffnet. 1922 dirigierte Strauss die erste Opernaufführung (Don Giovanni).bei den Festspielen. 1919 bis 1924 war Strauss Operndirektor in Wien und dort entstanden viele seiner Opern. - Nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten spannten diese den international bekannten Richard Strauss für ihre Zwecke ein. Ab Nov. 1933 war Strauss Präsident der Reichsmusikkammer. Von diesem Amt musste er 1935 zurücktreten, nachdem die Gestapo einen kritischen Brief an Stefan Zweig abgefangen hatte. - Durch die Zusammenarbeit mit Stefan Zweig, der für seine Oper "Die schweigsame Frau" das Libretto schrieb, war Strauss bei den Nationalsozialisten in Ungnade gefallen. 1944 jedoch wurde Strauss von Hitler auf die Gottbegnadeten-Liste und auf die Sonderliste mit den drei wichtigsten Musikern gesetzt. - DABEI: Portraitpostkarte mit schönem Foto von Strauss ("phot.

      London: Robert Hale, 1943. First British Edition. First Impression. Octavo; black textured cloth over flexible boards, with titles and revolver design stamped in red and silver on spine; dustjacket; 216pp. Slight lean, contemporary owners name on front endpaper, with light foxing to text edges; Very Good+. Dustjacket is unclipped, with a triangular chip at lower right corner of front panel (affecting neither titling or artwork), with a few small nicks and closed tears to the extremities, and six small tape mends verso; Very Good. An intriguing intersection of hard-boiled literature, the Hollywood novel, and film noir. The US edition of the book, Fisher's first novel, a key Hollywood novel as well as a high point of late hard-boild literature, was purchased by Twentieth Century-Fox prior to publication in 1941. The film was released the same year, and is today not only viewed as a foundational film noir, but also one of the first in which the cinematography and deeply damaged characters were utterly soaked in the noir ethic. The film was released in the UK in 1942 - about a year after the US release - under the title "Hot Spot," and this edition, issued in typically miniscule quantities of 500 or fewer by Robert Hale, advertises itself as the basis for that film. A seriously rare book, perhaps even more so that the US edition; indeed, we were unaware of the existence of the Hale imprint until this copy was located. The Dark Page, Vol.1, p.98-99.

        L'Entree En Lutte (Into Battle), inscribed and dated by Churchill to Charles Montag

      London: Heinemann & Zsolnay, Ltd., 1943. First French language edition. Hardcover. Fine. This is the first French edition of the first volume of Churchill's war speeches, finely bound, inscribed and dated by Churchill to his longtime friend and painting companion Charles Montag (1880-1956). The inked inscription in four lines on the second blank endpaper reads: "To Charles Montag / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1946". Churchill met and befriended Charles Montag during the First World War. May 1915 saw Churchill scapegoated for the bloody failure in the Dardanelles and forced from the Admiralty. By November Churchill was serving at the Front, leading a battalion in the trenches. But during the summer of 1915, as he wrestled with depression and decisions, he rented Hoe Farm in Surrey, which he frequented with his wife and three children. There, one day in June, Churchill noticed his brother's wife sketching in watercolors and impulsively borrowed her brush. He swiftly found solace in painting, which would serve as a beloved source of release and renewal for the rest of his long life. Charles Montag shared and supported Churchill's passion. Montag was a Swiss painter and art dealer who met Churchill in 1915, soon after Churchill began painting. Montag became a lifelong friend and compagnon d'art for nearly four decades, painting with Churchill from the south of France to Lake Como to Marrakech. More than just a companion, Montag also served as a mentor, supporter, and technical advisor. In 1915, it was Montag who took Churchill "round the galleries of Paris" and introduced him to the work of the impressionists. In 1921, Montag arranged an exhibition of Churchill's paintings at the prestigious Galerie Druet in the rue Royale, shown under the pseudonym "Charles Morin". Letters from Churchill to his wife testify that, over the years, Montag would "comment & guide" Churchill's painting, an influence Churchill regarded positively: "he has a vast knowledge and one cannot paint in his presence without learning." In 1946 Montag helped arrange for Churchill to stay at Chateau Choisi on Lake Geneva to paint, work on his war memoirs, and prepare his famous speech of 19 September promoting a United Europe. Just a half a decade earlier, Churchill's soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world as Europe was violently torn apart. Now, in 1946, Churchill's words would help catalyze a peacefully united Europe, lending bold impetus to formation of what would eventually become the European Union. Radically in the wake of the Second World War, Churchill called for "a partnership between France and Germany" and for a Council of Europe, which would convene in The Hague in 1948 as a Congress of Europe with Churchill as Honorary President. Churchill was known, on occasion, to gift finely bound and inscribed copies of his books to significant friends who hosted him on his trips. Given the inscription date it seems highly probable that this finely bound volume in his friend's preferred language was such a gift. This gift to Montag bridges the war that called Churchill to leadership and lasting fame, the complex peace he was still laboring to secure, and a friendship and pastime that had sustained Churchill during momentous world events for more than three decades. Into Battle was the first of Churchill's war speeches volumes, published in England in 1941 with this French edition following in 1943. This volume is bound in dark red half morocco over marbled cloth boards. The binding features raised spine bands, gilt spine lettering, black rules bordering all spine bands and transitions, and gilt top edge. Condition is truly fine. The binding remains bright and clean with no fading or deterioration of the leather and virtually no wear. The contents are likewise superior. There are no previous ownership markings apart from the author's inscription. We note just a trace of spotting confined to the first and final leaves and the fore and bottom edges.
