        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.

      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= >Image.</A><br>

      Cotchford Farm, Hartfield, Sussex. 10 May 1943.. Two pages, very densely written, in ink, on recto and verso of octavo sheet of letterhead. Folded for mailing, a few light spots not affecting legibility, else very good. To an unnamed "Dear Madam," in reasoned response to her letter about Milne&#39;s stance on the war. He writes, in part: "1. I believe as I said in PEACE WITH HONOUR that war is wrong, and I hope to see it abolished. 2. I also believe that torturing and murdering millions of people (without &#39;justification&#39; of war) and prostituting the minds of children, is wrong; and that is what Germany has been doing, is doing, and will do in every country she conquers. 3. I also believe that to sit by comfortably and watch this wholesale murder and corruption is wrong. Being offered the choice of (1) and (2) I unhesitatingly choose (1). 4. In addition to this: I am a practical pacifist. It gives me no satisfaction whatever to say &#39;I am not fighting&#39; in the middle of a war in which my country is engaged. I want to stop everybody fighting, not just in this war, but in all possible wars of the future. I know that if Germany won this war, or was allowed to make a compromise peace, war would not end. Therefore, as the only hope of lasting Peace, Germany must be fought and defeated. The whole of my book was valid for the sort of war I was then writing about: 19th century war, the war of convention, the only war we knew. This war is something utterly different ... This is barbaric invasion, when the losers are sold to slavery, shot, or (if young enough) sent to schools where they are taught Hitler is good ... I am more convinced than ever ... that no price is too high to pay for freedom, and for the preservation of children from the corruption of the Hitler cult ... It was my opinion, when I made it, that there was nothing more horrible than war. Now I know that there is another thing much more horrible: Peace under Hitler. My boy (an only child) is in the M.E.F. I hope yours are somewhere safer. Yours sincerely A.A. Milne." Milne had served with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment in the Great War, and in 1934, published his eloquent statement against war, PEACE WITH HONOUR. In the face of Hitler&#39;s onslaught, he published WAR WITH HONOUR, and served as Captain in the Home Guard.

        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.
