      New York, 1943. - Oblong 8vo. 1 p. Reverse with autograph musical quotation signed by Arthur Rubinstein.

Neruda noted this stanza in an autograph album in New York in 1943.

        Blätter einer Fächerpalme.

      - Bleistift, auf braunem Papier. 52,3:35,5 cm. – Fehlstelle im rechten Rand, mehrere Randbeschädigungen ergänzt, Knickfalte links unten. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Inv. 134. 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 „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–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.

        Typed Draft of Arturo Toscanini's "To The People of America," with Corrections in Toscanini's Hand

      N/P. LOOSE_LEAF. New York, September 3, 1943. A late typed draft of Arturo Toscanini's "To The People of America," which appeared ten days later in Life Magazine. Corrections in the hand of Walter and Arturo Toscanini. From the Toscanini estate. "On 13 September 1943 the editorial page of Life Magazine was occupied by an article entitled "To the People of America," and signed by Arturo Toscanini; It was the only extensive declaration he ever wrote - and it was about politics, not music... The article had originally been intended as a letter to President Roosevelt and the first drafts had been prepared for Arturo Toscanini by the Italian historians in exile Gaetano Salvemini and Giorgio La Plana, who were both teaching at Harvard University at the time. They knew that their beliefs and Arturo Toscanini's coincided perfectly, and they wanted the letter to appear over his signature because his fame was much greater than theirs... In their letter to President Roosevelet, the exiles stated their hopes and fears for Italy's immediate future, and they tried - as the text illustrates - to influence allied policy toward their native country." Harvey Sachs, The Letters of Arturo Toscanini, page 389. Sachs wrote in his 1978 biography of Toscanini that Toscanini wrote the article on his own, but then found evidence to the contrary. Regardless of its hidden origins, this letter was a defining moment in Toscanini's career in the United States. This copy, from September 3, would have been one of the final drafts. The text is nearly identical to the published version with a few small changes - "defying everything" is added in the fourth paragraph of the published version, the "..." marks are replaced by simple periods in a few instances, and "just" has been replaced by "righteous" in the published version. Strangely, the one error in AT's hand - moving the word "either" in the sixth paragraph - did not make it into the printed version. A remarkable piece of Toscanini ephemera. Four pages, carbon paper, with text on rectos only. Excellent condition overall with some normal tanning. A few stray corrections in pencil, which an accompanying folder from the estate states are in Walter's hand. Please contact us for additional pictures or information about this item. . Very Good. 1943. First Edition.

        Laura

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1943. Good/Good. First edition. A bit cocked, small tears and light fraying at the crown, a good copy in a price-clipped good later issue dustwrapper which is sunned at the spine and has some chipping on the front panel. An exceptional association copy of this title. Inscribed by Caspary in the year of publication to George and Miriam Sklar: "For Miriam and George - who feed and shelter me, sympathize with me in my worst moods, listen to my beefs, and still collaborate, with my best, first-class, grade-A love - Vera Jan. 21, 1943." The Sklars were very close to Caspary. George Sklar was a leftist playwright and novelist and the co-author with Caspary of the play adaptation of Laura, as well as several other plays. One of the scarcest film source books, basis for the classic 1944 film directed by Otto Preminger (and Rouben Mamoulian) and starring Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Vincent Price, and Clifton Webb. The film is reportedly to be remade. The only significant association copy we've ever seen offered for sale.

        TYPESCRIPT (Sinclair's Own Working Ribbon Copy) of WIDE IS THE GATE

      (New York): (Viking Press)((1943)). First Edition, Complete text, 1034 pages continuously numbered with variations; numbered consecutively by chapters. Placed into three large binders. Sinclair's own working copy, apparently a second draft and first complete early copy to be located. Extensive pencil annotations by the author with thousands of corrections, deletions, and additions to the text, from single words to entire pages. Many revisions greatly differ from the published novel. For instance, at the end of the first paragraph after describing Lanny Budd's inner convictions--"...that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that My fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of Hosts"--Sinclair has added, then crossed out: "For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot." After a narrow defeat in a bitter campaign for the California governorship, Sinclair created Lanny Budd, "America's self-diagnosed schizophrenic liberal." This is the fourth in the series of eleven novels about Lanny Budd, the third-- DRAGON'S TEETH-- having won the Pulitzer Prize. Sinclair considered this series the most important part of his literary production, which also included, of course, THE JUNGLE., Manuscript, Near Fine

      [Washington DC]: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1943. Treasury Department-issued War Bonds poster, featuring an illustration of a Russian peasant woman weeping in front of the smoking rubble of her home directly beneath the slogan "...and WE talk about sacrifice."

The message is quite clear: during wartime, all must sacrifice, and some sacrifice more than others. Designed by Canadian artist Roger Couillard, best known for his numerous travel posters and ads for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Original illustrated poster, lithographed in colors and measuring 51.5cm x 71cm (20.25" x 28"). Professionally linen-backed, with old fold lines faintly visible; some expert, pinpoint retouching to a few spots along lower edge, else Fine.

        Laura

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1943. Good/Good. First edition. A bit cocked, small tears and light fraying at the crown, a good copy in a price-clipped good later issue dustwrapper which is sunned at the spine and has some chipping on the front panel. An exceptional association copy of this title. Inscribed by Caspary in the year of publication to George and Miriam Sklar: "For Miriam and George - who feed and shelter me, sympathize with me in my worst moods, listen to my beefs, and still collaborate, with my best, first-class, grade-A love - Vera Jan. 21, 1943." The Sklars were very close to Caspary. George Sklar was a leftist playwright and novelist and the co-author with Caspary of the play adaptation of Laura, as well as several other plays. One of the scarcest film source books, basis for the classic 1944 film directed by Otto Preminger (and Rouben Mamoulian) and starring Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Vincent Price, and Clifton Webb. The film is reportedly to be remade. The only significant association copy we've ever seen offered for sale.
