        La lutte avec l'ange *

      Éditions du Haut-Pays, (Yverdon) 5.3.1943. - Broché, fragile couverture rempliée, imprimée en sépia et noir. Un brin défraîchi come presque toujours. Bon exemplaire de ce livre fragile, soigneusement imprimé en 2 couleurs. Reparu en 1948 chez Gallimard, sous le titre "Les noyers de l'Altenburg". Cet ouvrage passe pour avoir été détruit par les Allemands, ce qui ne va pas sans soulever quelques contestations de l'ordre du simple bon sens , par exemple liées au lieu d'édition. Un voisin de feu l'éditeur Pierre Rigo, un homme épatant dit-on, nous précisa que c'est à Gide que l'on doit la publication de ce texte, l'écrivain ayant été publié à deux reprises sous le label du Haut-Pays - A ce sujet, il est amusant de signaler que Yverdon (qui n'avait pas encore droit à "Ses-Bains" à l'époque) est non seulement en Plaine mais que cette petite ville de vingt mille âmes est l'endroit le plus plat du monde. On ne parle que de géographie bien sûr. Édition originale, L'un des 1436 exemplaires numérotés sur vergé, après 4 Hollande, 5 Auvergne, 20 Marais et quelques HC.

        Noces et autres histoires, d'après le texte russe de Igor Strawinsky *

      Ides et Calendes, Neuchâtel 24.3.1943. - Broché 23 x 17, couverture illustrée rempliée. Un pari fou de l'éditeur pour cet ouvrage artisanal comme on n'en fait plus; ce n'est pas moins en effet de 19551 planches que Rosselet dut colorer à raison de 19 images par ouvrage, dont la couverture et un in-texte, au lieu des 20500 annoncés (et 20 hors texte) dans le catalogue de la neuchâteloise BPU de 1991 qui rendait un hommage à l'éditeur.Pour en avoir pu consulter plusieurs, nous pouvons préciser qu'il en existe de plus gais (coloris plus vifs, plus lumineux) que d'autres, comme le cas de notre exemplaire relié. Quoi qu'il en soit, ils sont bien tous un peu différents, et donc, en quelque sorte uniques.Notre exemplaire comporte le programme (24 pages illustrées) de la saison 1965-66 de l'Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne où fut donné cette pièce.Hollande truffé d'une gouache originale sur demande.[Bringolf 70] Édition originale. L'un des 980 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin, après 17 Japon et 32 Hollande.

        DOCUMENT SIGNED (DS): Statement by HERBERT HOOVER for release to all editions of morning papers

      28 June 1943. Document. Near Fine, a remarkable and scarce piece. A scarce one-page press release of @300 words, SIGNED both in type and holograph by Hoover at the conclusion, regarding the need to pass the Fulmer Bill and to create the position of Food Administrator in the Roosevelt administration. Hoover was appointed this very position by Woodrow Wilson at the end of the World War I. During this time, Franklin Roosevelt said about him: "He is certainly a wonder, and I wish we could make him president of the United States." That wish did, of course, come true, and Hoover served during the worst economic depression in the nation's history, sans technology stocks. He was overwhelmingly defeated for reelection by the very man who wished he would become president. In part: "No responsible person has proposed a Food 'Czar,' nor an Angel Gabriel. What large sections of the country and the House Agricultural Committee have demanded is a Food Administrator, acting within laws passed by Congress and under the President. We need a manager, not a 'dictator.'" An interesting Hoover piece, probably limited to distribution to certain major newspapers, and quite unlikely that many have survived. This comes from the estate of an editor for a major New York newspaper.

        The Grand Project or the Sapper's Nightmare. (2nd. Edition)

      Maldon, August 1943 - Quarto, original dark blue calf on bevelled boards, blind panelling to the boards. A little rubbed at the spine, else very good. 6 original pen and ink "plates" and 3 similar illustrations to the text, carbon copy type-script. A "revised edition" of a spoof produced in perhaps two copies by "Arthur," the commander of a Sappers unit attached to the 79th Armoured Division, this one being sent to his friend Major Douglas Bain of the Hampshire Regiment. Relates, with typical facetious British Army humour, the events surrounding the development and testing of the DD (Dual Duplex) Amphibious Tanks at Fritton near Great Yarmouth. Part of the secret preparations for D-Day, the amphibious Valentines and Shermans had to be kept "under wraps," a idea which was nearly taken literally when it was found that they they had to be run back to HQ via a public road. The GOC suggested "we'll wrap them up in canvas like a lot of Moslem Women," and the name stuck. Perhaps we learn nothing new on the technical battles with problems of flotation, but this an evocative piece which gives a good idea of the humour with which the impossible was achieved, and the drawings are very stylish and far more competent than amateur.

        A MINGLED CHIME An Autobiography

      New York, G. P. Putnam's Sons, (1943).. FIRST EDITION (1943), INSCRIBED TO BERNARD HERRMANN BY SIR THOMAS BEECHAM. 8vo, 235 x 155 mm, 9¼ x 6 inches, pages viii, 330 including index, bound in original publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Spine slightly darkened, gilt dull, head and tail of spine just very slightly worn with a couple of minute nicks to cloth, small water spot on upper cover, lower cover slightly marked, corners just very slightly worn, otherwise a clean tight copy. From the library of Bernard Herrmann inscribed to him in ink on the half-title by the celebrated conductor Sir Thomas Beecham: "To my friend Bernard Herrman with his kindest wishes, Thomas Beecham May 7/43". Bernard Herrmann (1911 – 1975) was an American composer famous for his work in motion pictures. An Academy Award-winner (for The Devil and Daniel Webster, 1941), he is particularly known for his collaborations with director Alfred Hitchcock, most famously Psycho, North by Northwest, The Man Who Knew Too Much, and Vertigo. He also composed notable scores for many other movies, including Citizen Kane, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Cape Fear, and Taxi Driver. 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. During the 1940s, Herrmann's own concert music was taken up and played by such celebrated maestri as Leopold Stokowski, Sir John Barbirolli, Sir Thomas Beecham and Eugene Ormandy.

        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

      Affairs By Hutchinson & Co.. [1943]. Stapled as issued in original wrappers. 8vo. 16 pages. 22 cm. National Government Publication. Printed in red and black ink. One of the first official announcements of the Holocaust. Jan Karski-Kozielski, a Polish Government emissary in occupied Poland, bribed his way into a German concentration camp and witnessed the mass extermination of Jews. “In November 1942 he arrived in London to report on German atrocities in occupied Poland. He reported to the Polish Government, Szmul Zagielboin and Ignacy Schwartzbart (Jewish members of the Polish National Council), Anthony Eden (the British Foreign Minister) and the British parliament. In America, he reported in Washington to President Roosevelt and in New York to the International Jewish Council. As a result, the Allied governments issued a statement that the people responsible for atrocities would be punished. On 10 December 1942, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a note to Allied and neutral governments on the mass extermination of Jews in German-occupied Poland and requested retaliatory bombing of German cities. Both the British and American governments refused to act" (Andrzej Dabrowa, "Breaking the Enigma code: Polish contribution to victory").Lucy Dawidowicz cites the book in her now classic work, “The Holocaust and the Historians” (Harvard, 1983, p. 167) , as an example of the Polish Government in Exile’s statements on the murder of Jews in Poland. Indeed, the report could not be more explicit in its description of the horrors nor in its plea for help: "The new methods of mass slaughter applied during the last few months confirm the fact that the German authorities aim with systematic deliberation at the total extermination of the Jewish population of Poland and of the many thousands of Jews whom the German authorities have departed 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 civilised countries the following fully authenticated information received from Poland during recent weeks, which indicates all too plainly the new methods of extermination adopted by the German authorities." The report then elaborates: "The actual process of deportation was carried out with appalling brutality. At the appointed hour on each day the German police cordoned off a block of houses selected for clearance, entered the back yard and fired their guns at random, as a signal for all to leave their homes and assemble in the yard. Anyone attempting to escape or to hide was killed on the spot. No attempt was made by the Germans to keep families together. Wives were torn from their husbands and children from their parents. Those who appeared frail or infirm were carried straight to the Jewish cemetery to be killed and buried there. On the average 50-100 people were disposed of in this way daily. After the contingent was assembled, the people were packed forcibly into cattle trucks to the number of 120 in each truck, which had room for forty. The trucks were then locked and sealed. The Jews were suffocating for lack of air. The floors of the trucks were covered with quicklime and chlorine. As far as is known, the trains were despatched to three localities – Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor, to what the reports describe as ‘Extermination camps.’ The very method of transport was deliberately calculated to cause the largest possible number of casualties among the condemned Jews. It is reported that on arrival in camp the survivors were stripped naked and killed by various means, including poison gas and electrocution. The dead were interred in mass graves dug by machinery." Subjects: World War, 1939-1945 - Jews - Poland. World War, 1939-1945 - Poland - Atrocities. Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Poland. Jews - Poland. Staples with minor rust, light aging and light soiling to front wrap, internally very clean and fresh. Very Good condition. A copy with similar rust stains sold in June 2013 at auction for over USD 3800. Rare and very important. (HOLO2-97-48) .

A fairly early presentation as the novel was published in April of 1943 and certainly an important one as Lillian Gish and her sister Dorothy were friends of Lewis's. The book is cocked and likely Lewis was also at the time of the presentation as he inscribed the book upside down on the rear endpaper, obviously holding the book upside down while writing.

        â??America is not and never was a matter of race or ancestry.â?

      U.S. Government Printing Office: Wartime poster, 27 ¾ x19 ¾, large eagle engraving at the top of the poster, printed in red and black. Creases where folded. This rare U.S. Government wartime poster attempts to promote equality by reminding Americans that race and ancestry shouldnâ??t matter in our country. It reminds us that every American â??should be given the opportunity to serve the countryâ? and help the war effort. While this was certainly a noble goal, this poster was printed at a time when our armed forces were still largely segregated.

Une bonne lettre autographe signée de Ramuz à celui ci, du dernier jour de l'an, en remerciement et félicitations, est jointe à l'ensemble; en une page A5 de 16 lignes à l'encre verte, sur papier vergé à en-tête du timbre à sec de La Muette, l'écrivain fait part de son étonnement de découvrir des aspects méconnus de l'auteur ". l'amoureux, le père, l'homme d'Etat et que, j'imagine, beaucoup de lecteurs ne connaissent guère davantage."Quelles remarques s'imposent; si le volume "Prose" a été intégralement coupé, donc probablement lu, celui de "Poésie" est encore vierge; un infime résidu d'encre verte sur la tranche du premier nous interpelle ? Ce volume fut-il celui de Ramuz, récupéré par Raymond ? Le recoupement avec les notes de la lettre autographe, passant sous silence l'aspect poétique du second tome irait dans le sens de cette hypothèse.Belle truffe cueillie l'automne passé, tandis que les champignons, comme toujours, nous fuient inexorablement ?

Kennedy served with valor in WW II and the Korean War, Later became Captain of the aircraft carrier USS Leyte CVS32 (Essex Class Aircraft Carrrier) Blue Hardback dated July 1958 thru April 1961 KENNEDY, COMMANDER JEFFERSON JR. - (U.S. Navy, Ret.) of Margate, died at his home on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at the age of 94. Kennedy was born December 4, 1917 to Jefferson Kennedy, Sr., a prominent businessman, and Jimmye deLashmet Kennedy in Chicago, and attended Westminster School for Boys in Connecticut, and Rollins College in Florida. He came from a distinguished military family. He was descended from the youngest of four brothers all of whom fought in the Confederate cavalry and, except for his grandfather, died in the Civil War. Early in 1940, realizing that war was highly probable, he joined the US Navy as an aviation cadet, and was commissioned an Ensign in the US Naval Reserve a year before Pearl Harbor, having qualified as an aircraft carrier pilot. After commissioning, he served as an instructor. Following the outbreak of war at Pearl Harbor he was assigned to squadron VFB 16 which was a fighter bomber squadron based on the aircraft carrier USS Lexington, then based in San Diego. Kennedy served with valor in WW II and the Korean War, receiving ten medals for bravery, including five Air Medals, three Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Purple Heart. During his naval career he commanded the first jet recon squadron in the US Navy, graduated from the US War College, taught Naval and Military History at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, and served as Flag Secretary and Aide to the US Chief of Naval Operations. He subsequently served as Executive Officer and then Captain of the aircraft carrier USS Leyte. Among the naval experiences Kennedy relished was sharing drinks with Winston Churchill when he came to the US early in 1946 to give his famous "Iron Curtain" speech. Kennedy also enjoyed an honorary appointment as "Admiral of the Texas Navy", an award presented to him by Texas Governor Price Daniels in recognition of his wartime service. Kennedy was honorably discharged from the US Navy with the rank of Commander in 1961. Thereafter he served in several corporate posts including as Vice President of American Distilling Company and subsequently as President of Schenley International, where he oversaw marketing to Asia and Europe. He retired to Margate in 1986 and joined the Atlantic City Country Club, where he enjoyed many rounds of golf with his friends over the years. Kennedy is survived by his four nieces: Whitney Clay Diller of Nashville, Ashton deLashmet Clay of Chicago, Courtney Clay Peraza of Solana Beach, California, and Leslie Clay of Managua, Nicaragua. He is predeceased by his beloved wife, Berenice Connor Kennedy of Margate and his sister Patricia Kennedy Clay of West Virginia. Although Commander Kennedy's status as a decorated WWII veteran entitled him to a full military funeral, his wishes were for a private service. DATE PUBLISHED: EDITION: [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Personal Diary while I was in Mesopotamia [manuscript] T. W. Slingsby December 13, 1916-June 30, 1918

      [Ms, North Riding, Yorkshire?] 1943. Manuscript; 56 leaves, 4 sketch maps; 23 cm. Thomas William Slingsby, born 6 March 1876, entered the Army in 1899. In 1905 he transferred to the Indian Army, in B Squadron, 22nd Cavalry, "The Sam Browne Cavalry" of the Frontier Force. The Army List for 1912 (p. 685) enters him as a Captain. He was promoted Major 1 March 1914 (cf. 1919 Army List, p. 319a). This diary covers his service in the Mesopotamian Campaign where Slingsby won the D.S.O. (An article in the London Gazette of 16 December 1919 published the details of the action that resulted in the award.) December 13, 1916 was the date of the beginning of General Sir Frederick Stanley Maude's invasion of Turkish Iraq after the disaster at Kut. Major Slingsby's diary provides a daily account of the campaign in territory now familiar to a generation that has its own war defending oil interests in the Persian Gulf as a reference. The 1932 Army List (p. 220) lists Slingsby as a retired Major in the Northern Command of "The Remount Service" at North Riding. He died 8 November 1962 and is buried with his wife, Dorothy May Hole Slingsby, in the Northallerton Cemetery. stock#OB760.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED

      Magdalen College Oxford May 26th 1943 - A single sheet of letter paper written closely on both sides, to Rufus Buxton, who had written for advice about his own poetry. "I am quite incapable of helping people about this kind of poetry, 'modern' in the technical sense.". On Eliot in particular, "My appreciation of Eliot himself. is v. limited and even where I get pleasure from him I am quite doubtful whether it is the kind of pleasure he intended to give. I liked many of the images and disliked all the gnomic-cryptic passages ('your aloneness is not necessary') - but so do I in Eliot and I haven't the least idea whether I'm right in either case. I suspect the whole thing is a lit too like Eliot: but one wd have to be much more 'in the movement' than I am to say where fruitful discipleship ends and mere derivativeness begins." Rust mark to upper cover and a couple of stains to the verso. Rufus Buxton, 2nd Baron Noel-Buxton (1917-1980) published several volumes of poetry including No Smooth Journey (1938) and The Ford (1955).

        Typed Letter Signed

      Thirty-first president of the United States. TLS, 1½pp, 7¼" X 10½", Waldorf Astoria Towers, New York, NY, 1943 April 6. Addressed to O. Glenn Saxon of Yale University. Fine. Staple holes at upper left. Outstanding content regarding Hoover&#39;s views on constructing a lasting peace after World War II. "I receive constant demand or expression of hope for the formulation of more adequate, more realistic and more definite bases of peace policies.... It has occurred to me that it might be of some service to develop some of the ground of common agreement, although it might not be a complete and final program. Some twelve months ago Mr. [Hugh] Gibson and I published a book [The Problems of Lasting Peace] advancing some new ideas upon the subject. Those ideas received extraordinary support from all sections of the press, Democratic as well as Republican.... We proposed wholly new approaches to the machinery for making lasting peace so as to avoid another debacle like Versailles. And we proposed new approaches to the long-view peace settlements. The problem covers so many and such complicated issues that they cannot be stated in a brief formula on a single sheet of paper.... ...I have had the book condensed... hoping that you would consent to read it and mark upon the margins those paragraphs to which you feel yourself in agreement.... I am writing you confidentially.... I am sending you an extra copy of the pamphlet for you to keep. I am sending this letter out initially only to a limited list to see what the feeling is." In the upper left corner of the first page Saxon has written, "Let me have your ideas directly -- But you might write the chief on some other excuse." Comes with Saxon&#39;s "extra copy" of the 37-page pamphlet, "New Approaches to Lasting Peace," in very good condition and bearing Saxon&#39;s pencilled notes. Also present is a photocopy of Saxon&#39;s reply, addressed to "Chief" and dated April 20, 1943. Accompanied by vintage 8" X 10" news agency photograph of Hoover. An important and fascinating look into Hoover&#39;s activities during the war.

        Mathematical Tables and Other Aids to Computation [ MTAC ]

      Washington, D. C.: The National research Council, 1943. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. We offer a nearly complete run of this important early computer serial: Nos 1, 2, 5-59, 66-70, each in original wraps. Small quarto and octavo sizes, approx 12 inches shelf space. MTAC is the first period journal devoted entirely to the literature of computation. The journal had a very small subscription base in the early years. Through 1946, it&#39;s subscription list was less than 350 readers. Many were discarded as computing advanced at a rapid pace. As of this writing, Worldcat shows less than 80 institutions with even partial runs. The first volume contains lists and descriptions of printed tables, where they were published, as well as new errors discovered in the published sources. These errors, introduced by humans whose job description were "computers", continued to appear until mechanical computers significantly reduced and eventually eliminated them. Large businesses, military and financial operations used these tables to save time - so error notices were important. Later issues particularly in Volume 2 of this serial) contained interesting and groundbreaking material related to the development of computers as we know them today. From the library of Frank M. Verzuh, with his name on some covers. Verzuh attended the Moore School lectures and was a participant in early computering at MIT. The fact that this serial was still present on his shelf at his retirement is an indication of it&#39;s importance. Scarce in the marketplace. See Origins of Cyberspace 777 for a detailed description and history of the serial, which was published in a total of 14 volumes until a title change in 1960. Important articles included in this run include Origins of Cyberspace 577, 579, 1077, and 1078. "MTAC remains the primary periodical source of information on the electromechanical and electronic digital computers designed and built during the late 1940s and early 1950s, as well as on the scientific uses of punched-card machines, mechanical desk calculators, etc" It also served as a journal of record for the newly formed Association of Computing Machinery until the founding of their own journal in January 1954.

        Shark-net Seahorses of Balmoral: A Harbor Memoir. Twenty-one Linocuts by Peter Kingston and Twelve Poems by Robert Adamson. Together with a Song Composed by Peter Kingston

      Sydney, Australia: Chowder Bay Press. 2012. Artist&#39;s book, one of 26 lettered copies, A-Z, all on Japanese Iwaki Mulberry paper for the linocuts and Rising Stonehenge paper for the poems, with wrapper supports of Suecia Antiqua Chamois, each book signed and lettered in pencil, by the artist, Peter Kingston, and the author, Robert Adamson. There are twenty-one prints by Kingston, including three long internal wrappers, a folding leporello, the upper lid of the box, and the illustrated colophon in the base of the lining. Page size: 13-3/4 x 13-3/4 inches; 14 folios consisting of poem title on recto, poem on verso, linocut (chine colle) on recto (one of which is double page fold), verso blank; plus titlepage and colophon, plus wrappers consisting of double- page linocut on Iwaki Mulberry paper to hold colophon and color photograph of Mr. Kingston and Mr. Adamson. Bound: loose as issued in linocut-printed green wrappers of Iwaki Mulberry paper showing wide-eyed, iridescent silver - pink - and blue seahorses in a black net on green ground on front of wrapper with groper swimming into the net on the back cover; the wrappers are one continuous double-size linocut - and quite an extraordinary one it is. Housed in custom-made wood box (radiata pine) with Peter Kingston&#39;s view of Sydney Harbor on a cream painted ground (by Peter Kingston) then printed silk screen with his view of Sydney Harbor in red, blue, black, and yellow and finished by hand. One the inside front cover of the box is Peter Kingston&#39;s musical score for piano, "Francis Webb&#39;s Song" printed on Rising Stonehenge paper. Francis Webb, well- regarded Australian poet and Adamson&#39;s poetic hero, was the subject of his inaugural lecture as founding Professor, CAL Chair of Poetry, University of Technology, Sydney. A light sensitive circuit plays this song without words when the box is opened. Another linocut, the logo of Chowder Bay Press, is revealed on the inside pastedown of the box, again printed in color with the wood spoon technique by Peter Kingston, again signed and numbered by him.& Each of the 21 linocuts is hand finished by Peter Kingston, especially the cover wrapper of sea horses which are accomplished by hand (eyes, scales, etc.) The sea horses enchant and invite the viewer / reader to get caught in the "net" of this wonderful memory of a shared environment. Meticulously printed, designed and assembled by Nicholas Pounder, set in Bembo type, using archivally stable Japanese pigment ink, the book reflects a true collaboration between author and artist and printer. & The poet Robert Adamson and the artist Peter Kingston, both born in 1943, grew up on opposite sides of Sydney Harbour: the poet on the north shore at Neutral Bay with Taronga Park and Balls Head nearby, and the artist on the south side at Vaucluse, near the now lost Wintergarden Cinema and Sydney Stadium. They shared a deep attachment to the foreshore and water, although their paths diverged: Kingston was sent to a prestigious private school, and Adamson graduated from delinquency to Long Bay Gaol; and Kingston eventually moved across the Harbour to Lavender Bay, while Adamson left for the Hawkesbury River. However in this autobiographical collaboration they recall some of the landmarks, formative events, and magical experiences of their childhood, like the seahorses that Robert Adamson used to see taunting a groper on the other side of the shark net at Balmoral, where he swam every day.& Peter Kingston is a well-known Australian artist whose work is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney; the Museum of Sydney, several regional galleries and internationally by the Biblioteque de la ville, Belgium; and the National Film Library in Tokyo. A monograph of the artist&#39;s work titled &#39;Harbourlights: the art of Peter Kingston&#39; was published in 2004. Robert Adamson, one of Australia&#39;s leading poets, has been a key player in the growth of the &#39;New Australian Poetry&#39; and was editor of the Poetry Society of Australia&#39;s magazine, was President of the Poetry Society of Australia, and has been writer-in- residence at Australian universities. & Infrequently, a book with text and images can so capture "spirit of place" that all who read it make the place their own. This is the accomplishment of SHARK-NET SEAHORSES. This remarkable book is accompanied by a recent trade publication, PETER KINGSTON DRAWINGS, signed by Peter Kingston, reproducing 62 drawings by Kingston and an essay by Hendrik Kolenberg. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10659.jpg >Image.</A><br>
