        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 marks are replaced by simple periods in a few instances, and "just" has been replaced by "righteous" in the published version.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

        THE LITTLE PRINCE

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. No. 29 OF 525 SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. This is a really excellent copy in dust jacket of the first printing of Saint-Exupéry's final volume, a work translated into 250 languages and one of the most frequently published books of the 20th century; a children's book on the surface, it is actually a profoundly philosophical adult fable. It was written while the dashing French writer, aristocrat, and aviator was in exile in New York, following the fall of France in 1940, a time of considerable distress over the fate of his country. The narrator of the story is a pilot who has crashed in the Sahara--as the author had in 1935 (that incident is recounted in his award-winning "Wind, Sand, and Stars"). The pilot meets a small boy, a prince from a distant asteroid, who tells the story of his life, imparting the wisdom he has gained in his travels from planet to planet. The overall theme is encapsulated in the observation, "One sees clearly only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eye." Saint Exupéry's biographer Stacy Schiff noted that "rarely have an author and a character been so intimately bound together as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his Little Prince." Although written in French, our English version of the work appeared first, while France was still in the hands of the Nazis. Just weeks after publication, Saint-Exupéry (1900-44) left to join the Free French forces. His plane disappeared over the Mediterranean in 1944.. 232 x 185 mm. (9 x 7 1/4"). 1 p.l., 91, [1] pp., [1] leaf. Translated from the French by Katherine Woods. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. No. 29 OF 525 SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. ORIGINAL TAN CLOTH AND PICTORIAL DUST JACKET. Housed in a custom quarter morocco black cloth box. Numerous full-page and in-text color illustrations by the author. Half-inch chip to head of dust jacket (affecting one letter in author's name), tiny snag near title (no loss), a little light soiling, extremities of binding faintly rubbed, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and bright, in a good dust jacket. This is a really excellent copy in dust jacket of the first printing of Saint-Exupéry's final volume, a work translated into 250 languages and one of the most frequently published books of the 20th century; a children's book on the surface, it is actually a profoundly philosophical adult fable. It was written while the dashing French writer, aristocrat, and aviator was in exile in New York, following the fall of France in 1940, a time of considerable distress over the fate of his country.
