        THE GREMLINS (with near fine jacket)

      Random House 1943 - Near fine First edition, First Printing, with the Original Scarce First edition dust jacket, of THE GREMLINS by Roald Dahl, published by Random House, New York 1943. A clean, handsome copy of this rare book with its original unclipped dust jacket of Roald Dahl's first book. Please see images. The book is in a large format hardcover (about 9" x 11") and is profusely illustrated throughout in both black and white, and in color. The boards are in great condition, still maintaining their original sheen. The boards have no edgewear and only one corner with some very slight soft wrinkling. The binding is tight and square. The original end papers are clean and bright with no bookplates, no bookstore stamps, and no stains. Rear end papers have a penned owner name. The internal pages are very clean, bright and flat with but two pages with scuffing (image shown), otherwise no writing, no handling marks, no stains, no bent pages, and no foxing.

The very scarce original first edition, first printing dust jacket has benefited from some slight restoration by an expert paper conservator and presents as a near fine example. The jacket has strong vibrant colors with no edgewear, no chips, no rips, no stains, no rubbing and no fading. Touch of very slight toning to rear panel. The dust jacket is NOT price clipped and has a stated price of $1.00. Stunning jacket presenting the book beautfully. Please see images.

        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.

        ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE PRAIRIE YEARS and THE WAR YEARS

      New York Harcourt, Brace and Company ca. 1926-1943 - 6 volumes. Early issues of THE WAR YEARS and in the matching format of THE PRAIRIE YEARS. With 426 half-tones of photographs, and 244 cuts of cartoons, letters and documents, and with over 100 maps, additional photographs, and facsimiles. Large 8vo, beautifully bound in three-quarter red crushed morocco for Charles E. Lauriat, the spines righly gilt with raised bands gilt tooled, separating the compartments, which are lettered in two panels and decorated in the remaing four with gilt ornamental devices at the centers, sides with gilt lines bordering the morocco, t.e.g. xvi, 480; vi, 482 including index; xxxi, 660; xi, 655; xiii, 673; xii, 515 + index A very fine, pleasing and handsome set, the bindings very attractive with very little indication of use, internally uncommonly fresh with no foxing whatsoever. AN EXTREMELY PLEASING AND FINELY BOUND SET OF THIS CLASSIC WORK, STILL THE BEST AND MOST DEFINITIVE BIOGRAPHY OF THE GREAT AMERICAN PRESIDENT. Carl Sandburg was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his Complete Poems (1950), and then again for his Abraham Lincoln: The War Years (1939). The Prairie Years’ covers Lincoln’s life from his birth to his first inauguration. Originally printed in two volumes, the author himself has this to say about this edition, "I first planned this book for one large volume. When completed, however, it was necessary for initial publication to issue it in two. It is [here] made available to a large part of the public I had in mind all the time." The War Years covers the Civil War period until Lincoln’s death by assassination shortly after war’s end. In a real sense, this is the definitive biography of Lincoln, illustrated with photographs and reproductions of paintings, drawings and sketches. Carl Sandburg felt a close tie to Abraham Lincoln because of similar childhood experiences. Sandburg’s and Lincoln’s youths had not been easy. Their understanding of the common man was mutual. Each in his own lifetime would think of himself as a common man, a struggler from among ordinary people, according to one historian. Sandburg put it this way: "There’s a certain level of human existence below which one must sometime have lived if one is to really know the ways of the masses." Reviewers from all over the world called Sandburg’s book a classic. Sandburg, with a reputation as a labor advocate, gained favor with Republicans. After the first two volumes were published, William Randolph Hearst offered Sandburg a job with substantial pay and the Republican Party invited him to be the main speaker at the Lincoln Dinner. When Sandburg died in 1967, it was said of him what he had once said of Lincoln: "Now he belongs to the ages.".Franchere [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Lady in the Lake

      Knopf, NY 1943 - Bound in light green cloth, stamped in forest green. Only flaws to book are a bit of dustiness to edges and a small number 5649 written on the ffep. The dustwrapper has had some minor restoration work done to the top of the spine. Shows a little darkening to the rear panel. But no chips, tears to speak of. One of 6000 copies in the first edition. Overall, a tight, clean copy of the book in original dustwrapper -- rare in this protected condition. Basis for the bizarre movie directed by George Haight of the same title that starred Robert Montgomery as Marlowe -- but because of the "subjective camera" method -- you rarely see the actor.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED

      Jan 25 1943 - A long four page letter (some 350 words), written on four sides of folded sheet of letter paper, signed H.B. Heelis, to Charles Forrester, a Carlisle cattle farmer. With original envelope. Heelis asks for another bull stirk to be purchased. "I must save up petrol against sending the lorry", and talks in detail about the cross breeding of cattle. Farming in wartime was "getting wearisome is it not Mr Forrester? I am turned 76 which is not old compared to your mother and mine but I begin to want a holiday". She had met Mr Hudson (minister of agriculture) - "a wash out - a fiasco!" - she had been on Kirkstone Pass to meet him - "thick white mist and the Galloways were two miles off. Mr Hudson said some uncomplimentary things about the wasted grass in the borders; and I said a lot about the uselessness of trying to grow potatoes on a sheep farm - but potatoes he insists on having, he only laughed". She finished by mentioning that her staff have been off with flu, "the men are having flu one after another." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Santino id. 01 San Francesco Da Paola

      - San Franciscus De Pau Finissima miniatura su pergamena. L'immagine è cavata dalcelebre dipinto di Jean Bourdichon nella Chiesa di S. Maria della Pace a Roma. L'artista sostenne di aver realizzato l'immagine basandosi sulla maschera mortuaria del Santo. S. Francesco da Paola, Patrono degli eremiti, protettore dalla peste e dalla infertilità matrimoniale e, dal 1943, patrono dei naviganti italiani, fu il fondatore dell'ordine dei Frati Minimi, che lui aveva chiamato, in verità, ordine degli Eremiti di S. Francesco d'Assisi. Fu al servizio dei Re di Francia, dapprima di Luigi XI il Prudente, che lo convocò al proprio capezzale di morte, poi del figlio e successore Carlo VIII. Francesco morì in Francia, a Plessis-le-Tour, il giorno del Venerdì Santo, e fu sepolto il Lunedì dell'Angelo. Sulla sua maschera mortuaria il Bourdichon, pittore di corte, dipinse il suo ritratto che fu poi donato da Francesco I a Papa Leone X in occasione della canonizzazione del Santo (1519). L'originale è scomparso, ma si conoscono numerose copie. Dimensioni cm. 13,5 x 7,5 Epoca Secolo XVII

        THE GASTRONOMICAL ME. Inscribed to her sister.

      Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1943, New York - Fisher, M.F.K. THE GASTRONOMICAL ME. Inscribed to her sister. New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, 1943 . First Edition, Publisher's unknown variant of apricot cloth covered boards stamped in silver at the spine. Not the smooth green cloth normally encountered & likely one of the earliest author's copies. 8vo., 295pp, with the more uncommon first issue dustwrapper with the more provocative reclining pose shot by Hurrell. A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper showing moderate use including two chips at the spine crown. Inscribed by Fisher to her sister in black fountain pen on the ffe: "For Aimee, with my love always / Mary". A superb family copy of this much 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. "When I write about hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth, and the love of it - and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied. " Her lovely description of one of her meals speaks volumes about her craft: "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". An excellent copy. "M. F. K. Fisher . brings onstage a peach or a brace of quail and shows us history, cities, fantasies, memories, emotions." - Patricia Storace, The New York Review of Books.
