"Arthur Rowe, on an aimless afternoon stroll through the streets of [World War II] London, dropped into a charity bazaar, had his fortune told and guessed the weight of a prize cake, and found himself groping his way down the obscure and unmarked corridors of the Ministry of Fear. As it happened, Mr. Rowe had for some time been incapable of being frightened, and the Ministry staff showed bad judgment in admitting him. It was their only diplomatic blunder, but it proved to be fatal" (from the jacket blurb). Fritz Lang filmed a highly moody version in 1944 with Ray Milland. Hubin (1994), p. 349.

        THE SPECTRUM: COMPLETE SET OF GEORGIA STATE COLLEGE FOR WOMEN YEARBOOKS FEATURING FLANNERY O'CONNOR

      Milledgeville, GA: The Students of Georgia State College for Women, 1943-1945. First Edition. Hardcover. All three volumes belonged to a classmate of O'Connor's and contain many inscriptions by other classmates, but alas none by O'Connor. A bit of wear and fading to the 1945 volume. Oveall Very Good and quite scarce to have all 3 years together. Three quarto (9" x 12") volumes, two bound in dark brown cloth, one in white, comprising all three years of O'Connor's college life. She was in an accelerated program at the Georgia State College for Women that allowed her to skip her junior year which accounts for three rather than four yearbooks. These books provide wonderful examples of the early creative work of one of the premiere short story writers of the 20th century and bear proof of her talents as a writer and editor but also as an illustrator and cartoonist. The 1943 volume contains her freshman picture, a photo of her in the Newman Club, a photo of her as a member of the literary journal staff, and mention of her in the Allegro Club. The 1944 volume contains her sophomore photo, Colonnade Staff photo, several more mentions/photos, and most importantly 8 linoleum cut cartoons. Her senior 1945 book has many photos including Who's Who, Art Editor, Phoenix Society, International Relations Club, and many cartoons including the endpapers. Flannery O'Connor was quite busy in her three years at Georgia State College for Women. She is listed as a member and Editor of The Corinthian, the outlet for creative writing, the campus newspaper, the yearbook staff, the International Relations Club, the Town Girls' Club (for student relations) and, tellingly, the Newman Club, a group for Catholic students (in an overwhelming Protestant South). She was chosen by the student body as one of only twelve seniors (less than 10% of the class) who made exceptional contributions to life at the school, and she was one of only three Bachelor of Arts graduates to receive highest honors.

        Spanish Speaking Americans in the War

      Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs, [Washington, D.C. 1943 - Olson's first book, a tribute to the Spanish-speaking Americans involved in the war effort, both overseas and on the home front. The 24 page pamphlet was written in collaboration with Ben Shahn, roughly a year after Olson began working for him at the Foreign Language Division of the Office of War Information (OWI). The text borders on being inspirational, coupled with powerful images of soldiers, farmers, families, machinists, and doctors whose lives had been caught up in the war. While none of the images are credited, several would likely have been taken and contributed by Shahn, who had worked as a staff photographer for the Farm Security Administration before taking over as Creative Director for OWI in 1940. A stopper for collectors of Olson's work, and quite rare; this is the only copy we have handled, and we are aware of only one other example in the trade in the past decade. Quarto (28cm); illustrated stapled wrappers; [24pp]; chiefly illus. Some marginalia (in pencil) on front wrapper, some of which is partially erased; light edgewear, a few tiny nicks, and a shallow 3" chip to left edge of rear wrapper; a Very Good, sound copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Here is Your War

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1943. First Printing. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. Carol Johnson. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR. [10], 304 pages. Tan cloth, 5.75 x 8.5 inches. INSCRIBED on the front flyleaf by author Ernie Pyle 'For Ann Ronell - with love - from Ernie Pyle' and underneath in an unknown hand 'Washington Nov 16, 1943 - (The last night before the last trip.)'. Also included is a warmly written Jan. 7, 1944 V-Mail letter from Ernie Pyle to Ann Ronell. In part it notes: "Yes, dear Ann, your letters have reached me ... I'm pulled back from the lines, laid up for a few days with a mild cold...I think I'll go with the Air Corps a while when I recover. Wish Lester [ Cowan ] would write me what progress he's making" (V-Mail letters were photocopied, reduced size, censor reviewed letters from the war zone). Ann Ronell was married to Lester Cowan who produced 'The Story of G.I. Joe' which was based on two of Pyle's books - 'Brave Men' and the present novel 'Here is Your War'. Pyle, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1944 for his wartime coverage, was killed in action April 18, 1945 on Ie Shima (an island northwest of Okinawa Island) just 2 months before the film's premier. Pyle was perhaps the best known WWII war correspondent, and although the note here says his last trip overseas was in Nov 1943, this isn't quite true - he returned to the US for some mental health leave time in 1944 before returning to front, apologizing to his readers at the time for what he considered a weakness on his part. A unique piece from the World War II correspondent beloved by many for his wrenching and personal portrayals of the average G.I. Joe on the line. Mild spotting to the binding, clean internally. Dj has mild wear to the extremities, with a few minor spots and edgewear. Paperclip ghosting/staining on front dj flap and first few pages.

        [Complete set of New Yorker cartoon collections:]

      New York: Random House,, [1943; 1949; 1957; 1966]. You're Sitting on my Eyelashes"; "Please Pass the Hostess"; "Stop, Miss!"; and "Give Up? 4 works, quarto. Original boards, with parts of the illustrated dust jacket panels preserved at the rear of work 2, and the dust jackets present in works 3 and 4. Original illustrations to front free endpapers of each (watercolours to works 1-3, charcoal to work 4), black and white cartoons printed in the text throughout. Work 1: edges worn; work 2: edges worn and some loss to spine, panels of the jacket laid in at the rear; still very good copies, sound and internally clean; works 3 and 4: ends and corners a little rubbed, but excellent copies with the jackets a little dust-soiled with chips to ends and corners. First editions, first printings, presentation copies; the complete set of all four New Yorker cartoon collections of famed cartoonist Whitney Darrow, Jr. (1909-99), whose career spanned fifty years, contributing 1,500 cartoons to the magazine, publishing 18 books including these four collections of New Yorker cartoons, for which Darrow was best known and justly loved. Each copy in this superb set is a presentation copy to Darrow's Random House editor, Pat Read, inscribed on the front free endpaper in the year of publication and each with an original illustration. The first work has a full page presentation inscription made of two limericks, "I'm giving this book to the Reads / With hopes that the pictures are seeds / Of future delight / Far into the night - (Which is all that anyone needs)." followed by an amusing caveat necessitated by the viciously satirical nature of many of Darrow's cartoons, "Please don't let your spirits sink low - / For as far as the characters go / (Whether he-one or she-one) / Your elation will be re-won / When you realise you can see and not be one!", four lines of excuse for the bad verse: "(It rhymes at times / But I fear I hear / You panning / The scanning!"), and a small original watercolour illustration showing an African mother and three children holding up a sign bearing the inscription, "From Whitney, Sept 26 - '43". The second work has a full page colour pastel drawing of a young girl bearing, again, a sign with the inscription, "For Pat, Cliff and Sheila, with love from Whitney, 9/21/49". In the latter two works the images (one watercolour, one charcoal) reflect the cartoons illustrated on the jackets, with a "Merry Christmas to Pat, from Whitney" in the third, and a "To Pat with love from Whitney, 11/8/66" in the fourth. A superb set comprehensively collecting the work of a man who, already in a Manhattan gallery exhibition in 1978, was acclaimed by New York Times critic John Russell as "one of the best cartoonists around for as long as anyone can remember." The Graphics Collection at Princeton University (Darrow's alma-mater) holds over 1,000 of his original drawings, donated by Darrow's family in 2006.

      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.
