He worked extensively in radio drama (most notably for Orson Welles), composed the scores for several fantasy films by Ray Harryhausen, and many TV programs including Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone and Have Gun ? Will Travel. He became Chief Conductor to the CBS Symphony Orchestra in 1943 and was responsible for introducing more new works to U.S. audiences than any other conductor.

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

      N/P, 1943. 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 marks are replaced by simple periods in a few instances, and "just" has been replaced by "righteous" in the published version.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.

        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)

        L'art de la nouvelle. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      S.n. (Journal des débats) 1943 - - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) _s.d. (1943), 13,5x21,5cm & 3 1/2 pages in-4, 4 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 4 pages et demi in-8 publié dans le numéro du 21 juillet 1943 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire publiée à l'occasion de la parution, entre autres, des recueils de Marcel Aymé (Le Passe-muraille) et de Colette (Le képi). On joint le tapuscrit complet. A travers l'analyse de nouvelles de Colette, Marcel Aymé, Marcel Arland et Marius Richard, Blanchot s’intéresse à l'exigence d'unité entre les nouvelles d'un recueil "pour nous donner l'impression d'un monde véritable". Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l’écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au cœur même d'un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l'écho de l'impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (.) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d'une œuvre qui commence (.) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d'un critique qui a transformé l'occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d'une grande rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Hans le marin [with] Un scandale au XVIIIe siècle [with] La femme et le pantin [with] Le manchot. Eaux-fortes originales de Paul-Louis Guilbert

      Inter Nos 1943-1945, Paris - A COMPLETE SET--PERHAPS UNIQUE--OF THE FOUR BOOKS PUBLISHED BY "INTER NOS" IN PARIS DURING WORLD WAR TWO, THE FIRST TWO OF WHICH WERE ISSUED DURING THE OCCUPATION. The first three are EXTREMELY RARE because of the tiny edition sizes (by the time the fourth was published, the Germans had surrendered, so a somewhat larger edition could be printed). While many livres d'artiste were printed in France under the Occupation, they were subject to Nazi censorship, and thus limited themselves to uncontroversial subject-matter. "INTER NOS", as the name implies ("among us", in Latin), was the only organization (in fact a small group of friends) that published clandestine livres d'artiste, with texts and illustrations depicting graphic sex and sadistic violence. *****(1) Edouard Peisson, "Hans le marin" (1943), with 22 origlnal etchings by Paul-Louis Guilbert. EDITION LIMITED TO 17 COPIES PRINTED ON FINE WOVE PAPER, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF ONLY FIVE "EXEMPLAIRES DE COLLABORATEURS" ("collaborators" in a positive sense, we must assume). THIS COPY WAS SPECIALLY PRINTED FOR EDOUARD PEISSON, THE AUTHOR. This copy includes a second suite of the 22 etchings in first (remarque) state, as well as a suite of the three "planches refusées". One of the subversive remarques features a small portrait of a German officer complacently smoking a cigarette, with the etched text, "26 MARS 1943 / 1.005e jour / DE L'OCCUPATION_". Folio. Loose as issued in original wraps, housed in a custom clamshell box. FINE AND BRIGHT. ******(2) Frédéric Boutet, "Un scandale au XVIIIe siècle" (1943), with 20 original etchings by Guilbert. EDITION LIMITED TO 17 COPIES PRINTED ON FINE WOVE PAPER, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF FIVE COPIES WITH A REMARQUE SUITE OF THE ETCHINGS AND TWO SIGNED ORIGINAL DRAWINGS. This copy additionally has two etchings justified "épreuve unique", a working proof of one of the etchings, two additional drawings, the "planche refusée", two signed letters from Guilbert, and a signed original drawing opposite the half-title. This book and the following one have an extremely unusual feature: many of the etchings in the suites are actually other versions of the etchings in the book, rather than merely other states (in other words, they were not printed from the same plate). In some cases, the etchings used in the book are "decent" and the etchings in the suites are most certainly not. Folio. Loose as issued in original wraps. Board chemise and slipcase. FINE AND BRIGHT. ONE COPY IN WORLDCAT (BN). *****(3) Pierre Louÿs, "La femme et le pantin" (1945: completed April 25, two weeks before VE Day), with 41 original etchings by Guilbert. EDITION LIMITED TO 30 COPIES PRINTED ON FINE BFK RIVES WOVE PAPER, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF 13 WITH THREE SUITES OF THE ETCHINGS AND TWO ORIGINAL DRAWINGS. This copy additionally has four drawings (in addition to the two announced in the justification); two additional proofs of etchings (including one signed and annotated "épreuve unique"); twelve pages of typographical proofs (including two with etchings); a proof of the title-page with an original drawing; and two additional proofs of the spine label. 4to. Loose as issued in original wraps. FINE AND BRIGHT, in the slightly worn original chemise and slipcase. NO COPIES IN WORLDCAT. EVEN THE BIBLIOTHEQUE NATIONALE DOESN'T HAVE THIS ONE. *****(4) Charles-Théophile Féret, "Le manchot" (1945), with 21 original aquatints by Guilbert. Edition limited to 66 numbered copies beautifully printed on fine Arches wove paper, of which this is ONE OF TEN WITH AN ORIGINAL SIGNED GOUACHE PAINTING IN FULL COLOR. In this copy, the gouache is the preliminary design for the aquatint on p. 37. 4to. Loose as issued in original wraps, board chemise, and slipcase. A bit of light foxing, else FINE AND BRIGHT. Very rare. ******** COMPLETE SETS LIKE THIS ONE ARE OF THE GREATEST RARITY: EVEN THE INDIVIDUAL BOOKS ARE EXTREMELY RARE, AND I HAVE FOUND NO REFERENCE TO THE EXISTENCE OF ANY OTHER COMPLETE SET.

        L'armee francaise par Lucien Rousselot. 2 Bände

      . Ein außergewöhnliches Werk, auf das Uniformliebhaber lange gewartet haben: Die vollständige Ausgabe der Uniformtafeln des berühmten Militärmalers Lucien Rousselot, die eine unentbehrliche Quelle für die Napoleonische Epoche darstellen. Rousselot, der offizieller Maler des französischen Heeres war, schuf diese 106 Tafeln zur Napoleonischen Zeit zwischen 1943 und 1971, wobei er sich auf seine gewissenhaften Recherchen in den Militärarchiven stützen konnte. Etwa 68 Zeichnungen sind dem Ersten Kaiserreich gewidmet, die übrigen befassen sich mit dem Ancien Regime, der Zeit der Restauration und dem Zweiten Kaiserreich. Diese Ausgabe hält sich getreu an das Original, nicht nur was die ursprüngliche Farbgebung anbelangt, sondern sie gibt auch Rousselots Texte genau wieder. Diese beiden Bände kommen in einem schmucken Schuber, der zweifelsohne einen Ehrenplatz in manch einer Bibliothek einnehmen wird. Festeinband. 2 Bände im Schuber. Französischer Text, 106 doppelseitige Farbtafeln, Großformat. 450 Seiten. Obere Buchecken leicht gestaucht, ansonsten sehr gut erhalten..
