        VVV. Almanac for 1943. Number 2-3

      New York: VVV, 1943. Quarto, 144 pages. First edition of this double issue of the New York surrealist periodical. VVV, in large part Breton's reaction to the co-opting of surrealism by the American advertising world, and a dismissal of the periodical View, lasted only four issues (in three parts). Breton refused to accept advertising, and the money ran out, but not before a significant contribution was made to avant-garde magazine design. With contributions by Andre Breton, Victor Brauner, Frederick Kiesler, Arthur Cravan, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington and others. Illustrations by some of the above, plus Max Ernst, George De Chiricho, Oscar Dominguez, Wilfredo Lam, Andre Masson, Matta, Joan Miro, Gypsy Rose Lee, Kurt Seligmann, Yves Tanguy, and others. With covers designed by Marcel Duchamp. Some general wear to edges of Duchamp-designed wrappers, one small chip from the bottom right corner of the front panel. Still, the chicken wire rear panel is present, and the interior is very good.

        [ALBUM OF APPROXIMATELY EIGHTY ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS IN AND AROUND KODIAK ALASKA DURING WORLD WAR II, INCLUDING PHOTOS OF SOLDIERS AND SAILORS, SCENES IN KODIAK, AND IN THE SURROUNDING WILDERNESS. PLUS ANOTHER TWO DOZEN COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHS]

      [Kodiak, and elsewhere in Alaska. 1943].. Eighty original photographs, measuring 2 x 3 inches to 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. Tipped into a contemporary oblong octavo pictorial suede photo album, leather ties. Binding a bit soiled and worn. A few mount leaves are detached and a few photographs are loose. Condition of the photographs is near fine overall. An album of very interesting original photographs, taken by a member of the United States armed forces stationed in Kodiak, Alaska, during World War II. The island of Kodiak was the site of an American joint operations center, and was a primary military base in the north Pacific. It was the site of a navy base and an infantry unit, and the compiler of this album was in one of the two services - the images of military men are about evenly split between army and navy. Included are a large number of images of soldiers and sailors, in uniform and on leave, among them group photographs of troops as well as pictures of soldiers in uniform in the field, shots of military men working on construction projects, in town, fishing, playing baseball, and more. Several other pictures, both original candids and commercial photographs, show scenes of Kodiak and the surrounding countryside. A nice album of World War II-era photographs from this strategically important north Pacific locale.

        Gremlins on the Job

      London, Canada: London Printing & Lithography, 1943. Quarto. 12 ff. First edition. Illustrated in color. Like Roald Dahl's book, which bears a similar title, Varga's text is based on an R.A.F. legend of capricious sprites whose raison d'être is to sabotage aircraft. Both books were published in the same year, and it is not known which actually appeared first, though inscribed copies of Dahl's book suggest it was published toward the end of 1943. This book, however, did not benefit from having Disney as a collaborator, as Dahl did; nevertheless, its colorful depictions of these aeronautic mischief-makers have a folk-art quality that, in some respects, fits better with the subject matter. Original color pictorial wrappers show some light toning, name stamp at top of cover and title page, corners very lightly creased, else a fine copy of an ephemeral item.

        THE WAY SOME PEOPLE LIVE

      New York: Random House, (1943). First Edition. hardcover. Minor wrinkling and roughness to front endpaper, likely from the careful removal of a bookplate; otherwise, the book is fine and bright without any of the gutter darkening or spine wear typical to this title. The spine of the dustwrapper has minor wear to the heel with small chips at the head just extending to both panels. Other than minor corner wear and a short closed tear to the rear, the dustwrapper also is superior to the typical example. It is price-clipped but most of the dollar sign still remains. About Fine in a nicer than usual dustwrapper with absolutely no restoration. Author's superb first book, a collection of short stories.

        LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE SIGNEE

      - CARLOS Jean-Chysostome DOLTO dit (Paris 1943 - Clichy 2008), chanteur français. Lettre autographe signée adressée à « Doudou » (régisseur retraité de l’Olympia). Paris, 19 avril 1990; 2 pages in-4°. En-tête illustrée à son nom. Lettre emprunte de nostalgie, tranche de vie à l’Olympia. “ Que de souvenirs bien sur, que de soirées dans ces coulisses de l’Olympia et que de fêtes dans ces loges où on passait bien plus de temps que sur scène ! Chérix avec les parisiennes, les décors que l’on passait des nuits à finir à peindre et que de conneries avec ce pauvre garçon coiffeur qui habitait la maison. – il y avait aussi le bar Romain et ses « papillons’, les cop défiles et Paul le barman, les putes avec qui on jouait à la pétanque avec des oranges en bloquant la circulation ! Le garage en face où l’on se faisait servir quand on était « fachés » avec le bar Romain – Jean Pons, soupaut, Gilles Ragnet, Alain Wartz toute notre « équipe » « Johnny – Sylvie » dans les bureau du dessus – enfin.- Ces jolis moments, on t’en dit une grande partie, Doudou c’était pour moi le petit coin de cœur et de talent à gauche en passant la petite porte coupe feu en fer devant la guitoune de l’entrée des coulisses. – Là on trouvait Doudou « deüs ex machiniste » du temple avec toujours un sourire, un mot gentil, un coup à boire souvent une jolie dame ! – J’ai passé avec toi les plus belles « premières » et tu savais rassurer et trouver les mots qui détendent alors que mort de trac les artistes attendaient que ce superbe rideau rouge s’ouvre sur le public – Je me souviens des étranges « phénomènes » qui se passaient dans les coulisses pendant les messes de minuit ! et du trou de 40 cm derrière le micro qui nous a permis de voir les dessous des chanteuses ! Tu as si bien tenu ta cour que tu as le droit de cultiver ton jardin ! ”. Belle lettre

        Destination Tokyo

      D. Appleton-Century, New York 1943 - First edition. Owner name, and a touch of soiling to the boards, a near fine copy in a not quite very good dustwrapper with sunning at the spine, slight loss and a small stain at the crown, and some other small chips and tears. Second WWII novel by the hardboiled author of *I Wake Up Screaming*. A wartime book that apparently got little distribution. Basis for the excellent 1944 Delmer Daves-directed film featuring Cary Grant, John Garfield, and Alan Hale. Considered one of the best, and most action-filled WWII films, it remains a classic war drama to this day. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Is Bombing Decisive? A Study in the Organisation and Tactical Employment of Modern Air Fleets. WALTER CRONKITE'S COPY IN WWII

      Allen & Unwin, [1943] 1943 Sm. 8vo., First Edition; original yellow boards printed in black, blue cloth back with printed paper label, a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped pictorial dustwrapper, the latter wanting about one sixth of rear panel. WALTER CRONKITE'S COPY WITH HIS HOLOGRAPH SIGNATURE ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. The signature reads 'Walter Cronkite, United Press' in blue ink. There is an additional signature in pencil on front paste-down. Cronkite joined United Press in 1937 after a year as sports announcer (only his second job in broadcasting) at KCMO in Kansas City, Missouri. This switch from national to international status was effectively the birth of an American legend, for Cronkite went on to become one of the best-known and most respected American reporters of WWII. After covering the North African theatre he turned his attention to Europe, where he was one of eight journalists selected by USAAF to accompany B-17 bombing raids over Germany. During MARKET GARDEN he landed by glider with 101st Airborne and subsequently covered the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes. His extended post-war career as anchorman with CBS created an American icon. A SPLENDID ASSOCIATION COPY FROM THE EARLIEST PERIOD OF HIS BROADCASTING CAREER. THE WORK ITSELF IS SCARCE; THIS COPY IS VERY POSSIBLY UNIQUE.

        The Human Comedy

      New York: Harcourt, Brace & Company, 1943. Early printing. Hardcover. Don Freeman. 291pp. Octavo [22 cm] Red cloth with title and author in black on the backstrip. Good/Very good. Jacket is nicked and rubbed with some splitting and tape "repairs" at the folds. & & Attached to the front pastedown is the following letter from the author "May 9 1943 / Mrs. Robert _____ / My dear Mrs. _____ / I am so grateful to / you for bringing around the snapshots Bob / took - I didn't get to know him until / a moment before he went off to / Shanghai, but I liked him a very / great deal - he is a real good / soul. / I'm so I've been so rushed - / the few free hours are gone before / I know it is a new day is on / hand, with a sleepy writer trying / to get through it. / When you write Bob give / him my best + even though we / haven't met the same to you from my / wife and myself / William Saroyan." The letter is on The Lombardy [Hotel] letterhead. & & Attached to the recto of the front free endsheet are two original (4" by 2 1/2") black and white photographs of William Saroyan in his Army Uniform. In one of the photographs he is smoking with three other GIs in front of a fence. In the other he appears to be signing a book. There is a third photograph of Saroyan smiling that is attached to the copyright page. Beneath the photograph is the following inscription: "For a fellow soldier / with warm regards / to Bob ____ / with the best of luck / always sincerely / Bill Saroyan / May 9, 1943 nyc." Presumably these three photographs are the same as those mentioned in the letter. A nice association copy from the author to a fellow soldier.
