        The Picture of Dorian Gray (Original screenplay for the 1945 film)

      Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], Beverly Hills, CA 1943 - Complete script for the 1945 film. Based on the 1890 novel by Oscar Wilde. Equivalent to a nearly 3-hour version of the classic film, finally released at a length of 110 minutes.A man has his portrait painted, and the portrait magically takes on the ability to absorb the sins of his debauched life while he remains unaged. The tale becomes a tragic warning against a selfish and unconsidered life, as Gray becomes increasingly paranoid that someone will discover the image of his true self. The painting of Dorian Gray was commissioned expressly for the film, by artist Ivan Le Lorraine Albright, and evolved during production. The piece is now at the Art Institute of Chicago. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Black-and-White Cinematography, and nominated for two others. Set in 19th century London. Goldenrod studio wrappers, noted as COMPLETE on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 69 and production No. 5069, dated 11-5-43, with credits for screenwriter director Lewin and producer Berman.

        The Little Prince

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943 Illustrated by Saint-Exupéry. Translated by Katherine Woods. First edition, first printing, first issue.

Book with just a touch of light wear, former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with minor nicks to the spine ends, some toning to the spine and panel edges. Overall, a very good and pleasing copy. The Little Prince is a beloved children's novella that tells the story of a little boy from the tiny Asteroid B-612 who falls to Earth and meets a pilot who has been stranded in the desert, based loosely on Saint-Exupéry's own experience in the Sahara Desert. The text is complimented by the author's watercolor illustrations, which add to its dreamlike quality. The Little Prince was first published in the United States while Saint-Exupéry, a native of Lyons, was living in self-imposed exile in North America after France signed an armistice agreement with Nazi Germany. The text was published simultaneously in English with Katherine Woods' translation and in the original French under the title Le Petit Prince. Translated into over 250 languages and selling nearly 2 million copies per year, The Little Prince is indeed, as the dust jacket proclaims, one of the "few stories which in some way, in some degree, change the world forever for their readers.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        THE MASS EXTERMINATION of JEWS in GERMAN OCCUPIED POLAND. Note addressed to the Governments of the United Nations on December 10th, 1942, and other documents.

      London, New York, Melbourne (printed in Great Britain), Published on behalf of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, (1943). 8vo. Stapled as issued. Title-page printed in red. A very fine, near mint, copy. 16 pp.. The scarce first printing of this hugely important publication, which constitutes one of the very first official reports on Holocaust and one of the most accurate accounts that had been presented to the West, changing their knowledge of what was actually going on. It is made up of 1) Raczynski's account of the ongoing Holocaust, based among other reports, on the eye-witness-report by Jan Karski, a Polish Government emissary in occupied Poland, who bribed his way into a German concentration camp and witnessed the mass extermination of Jews, 2) the seminal "Joint Declaration" by members of the United Nations, in which "The above-mentioned Govenments and the French National Committee condemn in the strongest possible terms this bestial policy of cold-blooded extermination. They declare that such events can only strengthen the resolve of all free-loving peoples to overthrow the barbarous Hitlerite tyranny. They reaffirm their solems resolution to ensure that those responsible for these crimes shall not escape retribution, and to press on with the necessary practical measures to this end." (p. 12), 3) an extract of Deputy Prime Minister Mikolajczy's statement on behalf of the Polish Government, and 4) the text of Raczynski's broadcast of December 1942, in which pleaded for action, wishing to make the public and the Allied nations "understand how real is the tragedy which is taking place not so very far from the shores of this island, on the continet of Europe - on the soil of Poland. For more than three years the Germans have consistently done everything they could to hide from the eyes of the world the martyrdom of the Polish nation, the like of which has never been known in the history of humanity. But "when we would keep silence the very stones will cry out"." (p. 15). While the details were neither complete nor wholly accurate, the Allies were aware of most of what the Germans had done to the Jews at a relatively early date. The mass murder of the Jews was of such dimensions, however, that, at first, they could not believe the reports that reached them. This quickly changed, though. In February of 1942 Jacob Grojanowski, an escaped prisoner of the Chelmno extermination camp, provided the Oneg Shabbat group with detailed information about what went on at the Chelmno camp. His report became known as the Grojanowski Report. It was smuggled out of the Warsaw Ghetto via the Polish underground and reached London in June of 1942. It is not known exactly what happened to the report at that point, but by February of 1942, the United States Office of War Information had decided not to release information about the extermination of Jews (thinking that there was a risk of the public viewing the war as only being a Jewish problem). Thus, the Grojanowski Report was not released. By at least October of 1942 British radio had broadcast news of the gassing of Jews to the Netherlands, and in December 1942, the Western Allies released their Joint Declaration [which is printed in the present publication], describing and condemning in the strongest manner Hitler's violent attempts at exterminating the Jews of Europe.In 1942 Jan Karski (1914-2000), a Polish World War II resistance movement fighter and later professor at Georgetown University gave his first report to the Polish, British, and U.S. governments on what was going on in the German extermination camps in PolandIn 1942. Karski reported to the Polish government in exile (i.e. Raczynski, who was the Ambassador and one of its most prominent leaders) and the Western Allies on the situation in German-occupied Poland. Karski personally met with Franklin Roosevelt and British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden to explain what went on in Poland, and Raczynski wrote up the report. Eventually, the American Government confirmed the reports to Jewish leaders in late November 1942, and shortly thereafter they were publicized [i.e. in the present publication]. Karski's report (through Raczynski) became one of the most important reports in the history of the Holocaust, being a major factor in informing the West. It sparked one of the first official publications from the Allies on the mass extermination of Jews in Poland and resulted in the official reports and condemnations from the Allied countries, i.e. the "Joint Declaration" [also published here]. "The purpose of this publication is to make public the contents of the Note of December 10th, 1942, addresses by the Polish Government to the Governments of the United Nations concerning the mass extermination of Jews in the Polish territories occupied by Germany, and also other documents treating on the same subject. [...] In the hope that the civilized worlds will draw the appropriate conclusions, the Polish Government desire to bring to the notice of the public, by means of the present White Paper, these renewed German efforts at mass extermination, with the employment of fresh horrifying methods." (From the Introductory Note, p. 3). "Most recent reports present a horrifying picture of the position to which the Jews in Poland have been reduced. The new methods of mass slaughter applied during the last few months confirm the fact that the German autorities aim with systematic deliberation at the total extermination of the Jewsih population of Poland and of the many thousands of Jewswhom the German authorities have deported to Poland from Western and Central European countries and from the German Reich itself.The Polish Government consider it their duty to bring to the knowledge of the governments of all civilized countries the following fully authentical information received from Poland during recent weeks, which indicates all too plainly the new methods of extermination adopted by the German authorities." (p. 4)

        David M Crook

      London: Faber and Faber limited, 1943 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 4th Edition. [4] pp 5-104 A wartime reprint of David M Crook's autobiographical account of his role as a Spitfire pilot in the Battle of Britain with a letter laid in. The note was written twelve months before Crook died in the air at the end of 1944 and is written on a sheet of paper roughly torn from an exercise book. Crook apologises for the paper at the foot of the page: 'Excuse paper - written at the aerodrome'. Dated 17 December 1943 and with the address R.A.F. Kingstown Carlisle, Crook writes to a Mr Thompson to thank him for his letter, noting that 'I've been away' and makes arrangement for what was probably a lecture to the Royal Observer Corps agreeing 'to 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. Do any your people come out from Carlisle by car?', signing the letter in full. At this time Crook was training fighter pilots at RAF Kingstown in nearby Carlisle. He would die in 1944 while flying a Spitfire during a high level reconnaisance mission off the Scottish coast; his name appears on the Runnymede memorial.

        Gideon Planish [Signed]

      New York: Random House, 1943. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (quite mildly askew, a light touch of fading to the topstain), married to a Very Good dust jacket (mild edge wear and small chipping at the panel corners, presumably some expert light repair to the spine head and to a short closed tear to the front panel's top edge), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the first front free endpaper; a novel centered on a social climber with a knack for public speaking who becomes involved in shady, ostensibly philanthropic, organizations in order to obtain a high social status. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humor, new types of characters." Of him, H.L. Mencken wrote: "[If] there was ever a novelist among us with an authentic call to the trade ... it is this red-haired tornado from the Minnesota wilds." In our experience, signed copies of the book are not at all common. An altogether Very Good to Very Good + copy, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS.

        THE LITTLE PRINCE

      New York City: Reynal & Hitchcock. 1943. First edition. larger 8vo pp. 91 The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince), first published in 1943, is the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, . poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944). The novella is both the most-read and most-translated book into more than 250 languages and dialects, selling nearly 2 million copies anually with sales totaling over 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published. After the outbreak of WWII, Saint-Exupery was exiled to North America. In the midst of personal upheavals and failing health, he produced almost half of the writings for wihch he would be remembered, including a tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love, and loss, in the form of a young alien prince fallen to Earth. An earlier momoir by the author had recounted his aviation experiences in the Sahara Desert, and he is thought to have drawn on those same experiences in The Little Prince. The first printing was in 1943 by Reynal & Hitchcock, Inc. whose offices were, at that date, located at 386 Fourth Avenue, New York City, and it preceded the first French edition by two years. The dust jacket should show the price of $2.00 and the rose should appear on page 27 and face left. Later Harcourt printings had the rose facing right and on page 28. The colophon should have five lines, all in italics. The cloth should be salmon in color with red lettering (later printings had black lettering). All of these points exist in our copy. The dust jacket is age-toned, with a few minor scrapes to the front and rear panels. The cloth is exceptionally clean. Overall, a new fine copy in a good plus dust jacket. .

Overall, a very good and pleasing copy. The Little Prince is a beloved children's novella that tells the story of a little boy from the tiny Asteroid B-612 who falls to Earth and meets a pilot who has been stranded in the desert, based loosely on Saint-Exupéry's own experience in the Sahara Desert. The text is complimented by the author's watercolor illustrations, which add to its dreamlike quality. The Little Prince was first published in the United States while Saint-Exupéry, a native of Lyons, was living in self-imposed exile in North America after France signed an armistice agreement with Nazi Germany. The text was published simultaneously in English with Katherine Woods' translation and in the original French under the title Le Petit Prince. Translated into over 250 languages and selling nearly 2 million copies per year, The Little Prince is indeed, as the dust jacket proclaims, one of the "few stories which in some way, in some degree, change the world forever for their readers."
