        The Story of Dr. Wassell

      Boston: Little, Brown. 1943. First. First edition, preceding the English. Endpapers foxed, else near fine in near very good dustwrapper with some modest chips and tears. Signed by both James Hilton and the subject of the book, Dr. Corydon Wassell. Based on Wassell's heroic stance against orders to save the wounded during the Japanese invasion of China. Basis for the Cecil B. DeMille-directed film starring Gary Cooper. This copy also bears the contemporary signature of actor John Burton, who appeared in several films either scripted by Hilton or based on his novels, including Lost Horizon, Mrs. Miniver, and Foreign Correspondent (though he was not in The Story of Dr. Wassell.) At any rate a scarce book to find signed by both Dr. Wassell and Hilton. .

        THE ANGEL IN THE ALCOVE

      Audrey Wood, [n.p.] New York: [n.d.] 1943 - Williams, Tennessee. THE ANGEL IN THE ALCOVE. [n.p.] New York: [n.d.] 1943. 8vo., 13 pp. rectos only. First Edition. Original carbon typescript short story [basis for Vieux Carré], punch bound blue stiff wrappers of the Liebling-Wood Agency, 551 Fifth Ave. New York. A fine House File Copy. [Audrey Wood was Williams' literary agent. From 1939 Wood helped guide & focus Williams' writing. With her nurturing, he created some of his greatest works, including: Menagerie, Streetcar & Cat]. Very uncommon example in private hands. Recognized as Williams's (quasi) autobiographical coming-out narrative which found major success not in the US but in the UK. "Of the numerous plays written in the later portion of Tennessee Williams's prolific career, perhaps the most satisfying and undoubtedly the most favorably received was the 1978 British production of Vieux Carré, directed by Keith Hack, presented first at Nottingham Playhouse (16 May 1978) & later in London at the Piccadilly Theatre (9 August 1978). The British staging came a year after the play's disastrous Broadway premiere. "What was potentially strongest in this chamber-music play of time, place, & memory has been botched by inept direction," noted T. E. Kalem in Time magazine, & Walter Kerr in the New York Times indicted the director for what he termed an "irresponsible production", suggesting that the play be given another staging with different personnel. He concluded his review: "I'm game for a second go". The British production proved to be the "second go" that Kerr had championed, and under Keith Hack's direction it emerged as a major success, evoking comparison with A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie. Michael Coveney's review in the Financial Times was a rave: "Mr Williams returns to the London stage in blistering form" - Craig Clinton, Finding the Way: The Evolution of Tennessee Williams's Vieux Carre - Resources for American Literary Study 26:1 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        THE GASTRONOMICAL ME.

      Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1943, New York - Fisher, M.F.K. THE GASTRONOMICAL ME. New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, 1943 . "Like most humans, I am hungry. . . our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it. . . ." First Edition, Publisher's green cloth stamped in silver at the spine. 8vo., 295pp, with the more common dustwrapper of a handsome Fisher three quarter portrait on the back panel that replaced [by the publisher] the more provocative reclining pose shot by Hurrell. A fine copy in the publisher's smooth green cloth in a fine bright dustwrapper with one tiny chip at the spine crown of this admired tightly woven memoir & collection of cooking essays written over a twenty year period that have more to do with the entanglements of life & the appreciation of good things. Considered by many as her best book, TGM is about hunger in all its variant forms. The book starts with: "There in Dijon, the cauliflowers were very small and succulent, grown in that ancient soil. I separated the flowerlets and dropped them in boiling water for just a few minutes. Then I drained them and put them in a wide shallow casserole, and covered them with heavy cream, and a thick sprinkling of freshly grated Gruyere, the nice rubbery kind that didn’t come from Switzerland at all, but from the Jura. It was called rape in the market, and was grated while you watched, in a soft cloudy pile, onto your piece of paper". John Updike called Fisher "Poet of the appetites". A beautiful copy.

        Cloth of the Tempest

      New York: Harper and Brothers. (1943). First. First edition. Small owner's label of Arthur Sturcke, a small image of Patchen and other clippings affixed to the front and back blanks, thus very good in near fine dustwrapper with some modest age-toning. Inscribed by Patchen: "for Arthur with all the etc. etc. Kenneth." Laid into the book at page 60 is a printed rejection slip from The Saturday Review, on the bottom of which however is a handwritten note Initialed by Stephen Vincent Benet: "We are taking 'O My Darling Troubles Heaven with Her Loveliness' & glad to have it! S.V.B." The poem is printed on page 60 of this book. Sturcke, a lifetime friend of Patchen, was a painter and pacifist who exhibited in the 1930s and 1940s, and who did much to help and support the author. Patchen mentions him in his book Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer in a dialogue discussing art and artists: "And what about DeNiro? There is a serious young painter. All right what about Kamrowski? -- Or Lee Bell? Or Jackson Pollock? -- Or Arthur Sturcke?" .

Stamped "Received New York Legal Department Jul. 19 1943." Apparently prepared for the legal department to review, and dated just one month before the film was released. The Ernst Lubitsch-directed classic, highlighed by Raphaelson's witty script, featured Don Ameche as a would-be sinner not quite bad enough to get into Hell on his deathbed, and Gene Tierney as his long-suffering love.

        The Little Prince

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943 Illustrated by Saint-Exupéry. Translated by Katherine Woods. First edition, first printing, first issue. Publisher's pictorial pale orange cloth, with an illustration of the Little Prince to the front board in burgundy, lettered in burgundy; in the original first issue dust jacket, with the publisher's 4th Avenue address to the front flap, illustration of the Little Prince on Asteroid B-612 to the panels, lettered in black and blue. Near fine, with a hint of light wear to the extremities, very light offsetting to the endpapers, bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with very light toning to the spine and panel edges, a few chips to the bottom edges of the panels, short closed tears and minor creasing to the edges, a few faint spots of light soiling. Overall, a 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. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        McSORLEY'S WONDERFUL SALOON

      New York:: Duell, Sloan and Pearce,. (1943).. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 5-5/8". 1st edition. [10], 253, [1 (blank)] pp.. Red cloth binding with black spine lettering. Dust jacket.. VG+/VG (bit of chipping to spine ends).. Opened in 1854, McSorely's Old Ale House is the oldest, continuously- operated Irish pub in New York City. As a measure of its 'traditionally minded' owners, the tavern was men-only until 1970, when the National Organization for Women won a legal suit, thereby gaining admission [if not welcome]. By the time I had a beer or two there in the late 70s, the female gender had become a vital ingredient to a congenial evening imbibing amid general convivality, though McSorleys had yet to make any concession in terms of facilities- there was one... if a lady wanted to use it, she took her chances... the memory of the subsequent clapping on her exit, all the while the waiter was bringing 14 mugs of beer to the table [sans tray], is as vivid today as if I had been there just last night. .

        Fabrik: Ein Bildepos der Technik (Factory: A Photoessay on Technology)

      Rotapfel-Verlag 1943 - Erlenbach-Zurich: Rotapfel-Verlag, 1943. (12.25 x 9 in, 31.4 x 23 cm). 112 pp. First edition. Fine in very good dust jacket. 95 black and white gravure plates. Introduction by Arnold Burgaurer. Original beige cloth covered boards, front cover lettered in red (spine a bit slanted, else fine); original printed and photographically illustrated dust jacket (light wear to extremities, 3.2 cm closed tear at head of upper panel near fore-edge, .5 cm tear and associated creasing at top edge nearing spine, .5 cm closed tear at crown, complete and quite nice); original sheet of plate captions laid in (edges age toned to a degree). "As Arnold Burgaurer cogently states in his introduction, Tuggener is a jack-of-all-trades: he exhibits, 'the sharp eye of the hunter, the dreamy eye of the painter; he can be a realist, a formalist, romantic, theatrical, surreal.' Tuggener moves effortlessly between large-format lucidity and grainy, blurred impressionism, in a book that is a decade ahead of its time." (Parr/Badger, "The Photobook" Volume I, p. 144). Additional references: (Roth, ed., "The Open Book", p. 134-135; Auer, "802 photo books", p. 300) A fine copy in a very good, complete and unrestored example of the dust jacket.

        The Golden Carpet.

      (London), the Golden Cockerell Press, (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.

        Sudenten German Anti-fascist Fortnightly. Vol 4, No. 1, 1st January 1943 bis No. 26, 18th December 1943.

      London., Publishing Board of Einheit and Management 1943 - Je zw. 24 und 32 S. Kl.8°, OLn. (Exilarchiv xxx) Kompletter gebundener Jahrgang der von 1942 bis 1945 existierenden Exil-Zeitschrift sudenten-deutscher Antifaschisten, um die sich kommunistische, sozialistische, sozialdemokratische und parteilose Kräfte sammelten. Die Einheit firmierte zwischenzeitlich unter dem Titel young czechoslovakia / deutsche ausgabe . Unter dem Beitragstitel Antisemitismus und Judenschlaechterei von Karl Kreibich heisst u.a.: Auf der ganzen Welt aber muss aus diesem Judenmord die Lehre gezogen werden, welch furchtbare Gefahr der Antisemitismus ist und dass er mit Stumpf und Stil ausgerottet werden muss. Der Antisemitismus muss als ein Verbrechen verfolgt werden, wie das in der Sowjetunion schon vom Anfang festgelegt worden ist. Und in dem großen Kriege, in welchem wir heute stehen, muss jeder Antisemitismus als Verbündeter des Feindes, jeder Antisemit als Angehöriger der Fünften Kolonne betrachtet und behandelt werden. Die entsetzlichen Judenabschlachtungen der Nazis müssen ein Ansporn zu noch energischerer Kriegsführung, zu noch verstärktem Kriegseinsatz sein, um die Bestie so rasch wie möglich unschädlich zu machen. Des weiteren enthält der Jahrgang folgende Beiträge und Artikel: Georg Lukacs: Nikolaus Lenaus Albigenser . Zum 100 jaehrigen Jubilaeum des Erscheinens; Paul Reimann: Juden am Scheideweg; Heinz Schmidt: 10 Jahre Hitler; Gustav Beuer: 25 Jahre Rote Armee 1918-1943; Alfred P.
