        All This and Beven Too" original pen and ink drawing

      Sussex or Soho?,, 1943.. Original pen drawing, 29 x 21cms, signed "Peake 1943" lower left, mounted and framed in fine condition. Superb original pen and ink drawing of a miserable kangaroo in London, done for Quentin Crisp's 1943 war time book of poetry, All This and Bevin Too (and illustrated at page 13 of the book). The drawing depicts a kangaroo sitting in his blacked-out flat, struggling to fill out a civil service questionnaire; Ernest Bevin, of course, was the Minister of Labour in the United Kingdom as a member of the wartime coalition.The fine and intricate detail of Peake's drawing was poorly served by the subsequent publication in Crisp's book, a victim of the wartime paper rationing, but this original drawing captures the artist's marvellous skill. It is also an example of Peake's main artistic endeavours over the period of World War Two - depicting war scenes in both painting and poetry. Highly respected by his peers, Peake's friends included Dylan Thomas and Graham Greene and his work is included in the National Portrait Gallery and the Imperial War Museum.Mervyn Peake was born in Jiangxi Province of central China the son of missionaries with the London Missionary Society. He was educated at Tientsin Grammar School before moving to England in 1922. This drawing dates from what is genuinely agreed to be the most productive years of Peakes' career, not least his writing of the Gormenghast trilogy.

An original typewritten letter and first edition. 22 x18 cm and 8vo, the lettered typed on Treasury Chambers stationary, the first page with letter head and the remaining with embossed seal, stapled in the top left corner, the printed book in a binding for the Institute of Bankers Library of black cloth, printed paper label on the upper cover and institute emblem in gilt, the spine lettered in both gilt and manuscript. The letter is 10 pages on five sheets filling both sides of the paper; the book is 20 pp. Both letter and document in n excellent state of preservation, the letter very lightly creased from the original folding, the printed document with typical markings. AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT LETTER OF EXCELLENT ECONOMIC CONTENT BY ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL MEN OF THE 20TH CENTURY. THIS LETTER HARKENS TO ISSUES RELEVANT IN OUR OWN DAY WITH ITS EMPHASIS ON DEVELOPING AND STABILIZING AN INTERNATIONAL AND WORKABLE MONETARY SYSTEM. This original 10 page letter of roughly 2000 words was reprinted in Volume 25 (Activities 1940-44 shaping the Post-War World: The Clearing Union) of the Collected Writings of John Maynard Keynes. The letter is from Keynes to Jacob Viner. Viner was a noted opponent of Keynes during the Great Depression. While he agreed with the policies of government spending that Keynes pushed for, Viner argued that Keynes's analysis was flawed and would not stand in the long run. Known for his enduring economic modeling of the firm, including the long- and short-run cost curves, his work is still used today. Viner is further known for having added the terms "trade creation" and "trade diversion" to the canon of economics in 1950. He also made important contributions to the theory of international trade and to the history of economic thought. While he was at Chicago, Viner co-edited the Journal of Political Economy with Frank Knight. In the letter Keynes provides a running commentary of his responses to reading through a paper Viner was soon to have published in the Yale Review. Keynes calls Viner's paper "one of the few important contributions to the discussion (of an international Clearing Union) which have yet come to hand." Keynesian economics is the view that in the short run, especially during recessions, productive activity is strongly influenced by aggregate demand (total spending in the economy); and that aggregate demand does not necessarily equal the productive capacity of the economy. Instead, aggregate demand is influenced by a host of factors and sometimes behaves erratically, affecting production, employment, and inflation. The theories forming the basis of Keynesian economics were first presented by the British economist John Maynard Keynes in his book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, published in 1936, during the Great Depression. Keynes contrasted his approach to the 'classical' (more commonly 'neoclassical') economics that preceded his book. The interpretations of Keynes that followed are contentious and several schools of economic thought claim his legacy. Keynesian economists often argue that private sector decisions sometimes lead to inefficient macroeconomic outcomes which require active policy responses by the public sector, in particular, monetary policy actions by the central bank and fiscal policy actions by the government, in order to stabilize output over the business cycle.[ Keynes's ideas became widely accepted after WWII, and until the early 1970s, Keynesian economics provided the main inspiration for economic policy makers in Western industrialized countries. Through the 1950s, moderate degrees of government demand leading industrial development, and use of fiscal and monetary counter-cyclical policies continued, and reached a peak in the "go go" 1960s, where it seemed to many Keynesians that prosperity was now permanent. In 1971, Republican US President Richard Nixon even proclaimed "I am now a Keynesian in economics." However, with the oil shock of 1973, and the economic problems of the 1970s, modern liberal economics began to fall out of favor.

        Stallion and Jack Fighting

      Associated American Artists, 1943. unbound. very good(+). View. Black and white lithograph. Image measures 11.75" x 15.5". Dramatic view of two horses intertwined in an aggressive embrace (catalogue number C-39) from an edition of 250. Stone is signed with initials and date. Title, signature and edition number (2) in pencil. Inscription in pencil reads "Use this print but get it no darker", indicating that this is perhaps an artist's proof. George L. Miller's signature is also present. This print is related to earlier oil painting (1930), a watercolor study and a drawing. John Steuart Curry (1897-1946) was an American Regionalist painter and print maker, known for his scenes of rural America. This print was part of a series printed by George L. Miller and distributed by the Associated American Artists. From 1934-1949, the AAA sought to disseminate their work to the public in an affordable manner: they produced each print in editions of 250 and sold them for $5 a piece, first through department stores and later by themselves. The group focused on representational and regional artists including Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton. Tape residue in top corners.

      Collection of seven (7) printed World War Two propaganda leaflets, each approximately 4½" X 7", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1943-44]. Near fine. All are evenly and moderately age toned, being printed of course on low quality pulp paper, but all are completely free of edge tears and there is no brittleness whatsoever -- overall remarkably clean and attractive. Two are printed on one side only, another two are printed identically on recto and verso, and the remaining three bear texts on both sides. Two are in German, three are in Italian, one each in French and Arabic. All were apparently distributed in Tunisia in the later stages of the war, often dumped unceremoniously from airplanes, in an effort to dispirit German soldiers and other combatants and induce them to surrender. Individual descriptions follow: 1) "Die Toten Kommon Nicht Nach Haus Aber die Gefangenen Bleiben am Leben und Sehen die Heimat Wieder / Afrika 1943 oder Deutschland 1944." (The Dead Do Not Come Home But Prisoners Remain Alive and See Home Again.) Recto bears above text -- below "The Dead Do Not Come Home" is a depiction of a desert cemetery with a German helmet on each cross, and below "But Prisoners Remain Alive and See Home Again" is a depiction of a cozy Alpine home in a mountainous setting and a returning soldier greeting wife and child. Verso text in German discusses massive German deaths, the futility of the Nazi war effort, and stresses "Nur einen Ausweg!" -- Only One Way Out! A "Passierschein" (safe conduct pass) with English instructions at the bottom: "To British and American Outposts: Any German soldier presenting this safe-conduct is to be disarmed and made prisoner." 2) "Es Gibt Kein Zuruck Mehr!" (There Is No Going Back!) Recto bears question-and -answer text in German, the gist of which is that Tunisia is a lost cause and the soldiers' best chance for survival is to give himself up. "Du Hast die Wahl!" it concludes -- The Decision Is Yours! Verso bears safe conduct information similar to #1 above. 3) Titled "Marinai d'Italia!" this two-sided leaflet in Italian urges those in the Italian Navy to surrender. Leaflets #4 and #5 are largely pictorial: 4) Titled in Italian "Soldato Italiano! Lascia la Corda e Sara Finita la Commedia" in bold red, the large graphic in black depicts an Italian soldier straining to hoist a rope with a caricature of Hitler hanging from the end of it. A caricature of Mussolini hangs from Hitler's legs. Verso is identical. 5) Titled in Italian "Hitler Porta l'Oppressione Mussolini Porta le Illusioni" in bold red, the large graphic in black depicts a caricature of Hitler, laughing maniacally, squeezing bright red blood out of Italy. On the other side of Italy stands a caricature of Mussolini; with his left hand he holds a large goblet to catch the blood (which also spills out and splatters the floor and their legs) and with his right hand he holds a straw up to his puckered lips through which he blows large red blood bubbles (individually labeled "Somalia," "Abissinia," "Eritrea," "Cirenaica" and "Tripolitania"). Below Hitler and Mussolini is the caption "E il Popolo Italiani da il Sangue" in red. Verso is identical. 6) Titled "Francais de Tunisie!" in large black typeface, this French text discusses the importance of an Allied victory in Tunisia. "La liberation de Tunis sera la premiere etape vers la liberation de la France." Recto only. 7) Black text, recto only, entirely in Arabic (not translated). All in all an exceptional little collection in superb condition -- fascinating and provocative. Very scarce and quite displayable. Though printed and distributed in large quantities, relatively few of these delicate throwaways seem to have survived, much less in such choice condition, and they seldom surface on the market. To find seven fine examples from one theatre of war is most unusual.

      [n.p.] New York: [n.d.] 1943: Audrey Wood, 1943 Williams, Tennessee. THE ANGEL IN THE ALCOVE. [n.p.] New York: [n.d.] 1943. 8vo., 13 pp. rectos only. First Edition. Original carbon typescript short story [basis for Vieux Carré], punch bound blue stiff wrappers of the Liebling-Wood Agency, 551 Fifth Ave. New York. A fine House File Copy. [Audrey Wood was Williams' literary agent. From 1939 Wood helped guide & focus Williams' writing. With her nurturing, he created some of his greatest works, including: Menagerie, Streetcar & Cat]. Very uncommon example in private hands. Recognized as Williams's (quasi) autobiographical coming-out narrative which found major success not in the US but in the UK. "Of the numerous plays written in the later portion of Tennessee Williams's prolific career, perhaps the most satisfying and undoubtedly the most favorably received was the 1978 British production of Vieux Carré, directed by Keith Hack, presented first at Nottingham Playhouse (16 May 1978) & later in London at the Piccadilly Theatre (9 August 1978). The British staging came a year after the play's disastrous Broadway premiere. "What was potentially strongest in this chamber-music play of time, place, & memory has been botched by inept direction," noted T. E. Kalem in Time magazine, & Walter Kerr in the New York Times indicted the director for what he termed an "irresponsible production", suggesting that the play be given another staging with different personnel. He concluded his review: "I'm game for a second go". The British production proved to be the "second go" that Kerr had championed, and under Keith Hack's direction it emerged as a major success, evoking comparison with A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie. Michael Coveney's review in the Financial Times was a rave: "Mr Williams returns to the London stage in blistering form" - Craig Clinton, Finding the Way: The Evolution of Tennessee Williams's Vieux Carre - Resources for American Literary Study 26:1.

        Albania Basic Handbook

      London: Ministry of Economic Warfare,, 1943. Foolscap quarto. Original green and buff cord-tied binder. 4 folding maps, 2 of them coloured, 2 folding tables printed in red and black. A touch rubbed, else very good. First editions, comprising of four sections, all designated secret: part I Pre-Invasion, August 1943 (pp. 92): part II Post-Invasion, August 1943 (pp. 73); Map Section, August 1943 (2 general maps, together with roads and railways map, and administrative map); and Supplement No. 1, November 1943, containing lists of Albanian and Italian "personalities," a local directory, and a section of food and agriculture. This detailed report on Albania was produced by the Ministry of Economic Warfare at the time that the Special Operations Executive (SOE) had just infiltrated their liaison party - including Julian Amery, Anthony Quayle, David Smiley, and Neil "Billy" McLean - into the country. Roundell Palmer, Lord Selbourne, who succeeded Hugh Dalton as Minister for Economic Warfare in 1942, estimated that economic warfare took up "about a fifth of his time"; it was essentially a cover for the management of the activities of SOE. Suggestions for amendments were to be sent to the splendidly anonymous Box 99, Western Central District Office, New Oxford Street, WC1. Uncommon: COPAC finds four (BL, Oxford, LSE and IWM) to which OCLC adds NYPL and University of Wisconsin.

        Ministry of Fear, The

      New York: Viking Press, 1943. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine+. First American Edition. 8vo: [8],3-239,[1]pp. Publisher's finely woven black cloth lettered in white and sky-blue, the top edge stained grey; in a pictorial dust jacket priced $2.50. A Fine copy, square, tight and probably unread; in a better than Near Fine jacket, the spine lightly toned and rubbed, a short closed tear to the top of the front panel and minor dust-soiling to the back panel. A rather exceptional example. Subtitled “an entertainment”—Greene 's way of distinguishing his novels that turn on duplicitous sexual relationships, unethical financial dealings and political violence from his more "serious" novels of faith. The Ministry of Fear, the only novel Greene wrote during the War, centers on Arthur Rowe's attempt to regain an ordinary life amid a German bombing campaign over England. After the mercy-killing of his wife, Rowe is thrust into a world of espionage, double dealings and mistaken identities. "Greene’s characteristic emphasis on the redemption of a psychologically broken man . . . echoes Joseph Conrad’s characterization of Verloc in The Secret Agent, as well as Conrad’s penchant for creating a dualistic world in which definitive answers are rarely, if ever, found." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Black and Gold. Portrait of a Woman Reading

      Melbourne,, 1943.. Oil on canvas, 390 x 332 mm., signed, in original frame. A very attractive painting by one of Australia's more mysterious painters. Although one of her close friends was Streeton, and she studied with the many gifted Heidelberg school artists, Muntz Adams "disdained the blue and gold of Heidelberg, and its copyists [and this] could partly account for her obscurity, despite her 'firm, free modelling and broad effect' being consistently acclaimed since 1896" (Juliet Peers, Heritage: The National Women's Art Book).This atmospheric and charming work shows the artist's expressive freedom of brushstroke, with large slabs of colour in her usual sombre colour tones.Muntz Adams studied under Folingsby at the National Gallery School, Melbourne then in Paris and England. In 1898 she was awarded a gold medal at the Greater Britain Exhibition in London.. Unusually for a woman artist, she earned several thousand pounds a year, and charged up to 150 pounds for a portrait. She exhibited with the Victorian Artists Society between 1896 and 1915.Black and Gold was exhibited in the Exhibition of Paintings at the Athenaeum Gallery, Melbourne, 1943, no.75.
