        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.

      - 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 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.

        The Gremlins

      New York: Random House,, 1943. From the Walt Disney Production. A Royal Air Force Story. Quarto. Original red cloth backed red boards, titles to spine in black, colour illustration to upper board, yellow and red pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout. Upper edges of boards rubbed, partial tanning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with faded spine panel and some nicks, closed tears, and creased areas. First edition, first impression of Roald Dahl's first book, and his only book with Walt Disney. "Disney tried to make a film of one of Dahl's stories called 'The Gremlins' (1943), which concerned a tribe of goblins who were blamed by the RAF for everything that went wrong with an aircraft. Gremlin stories were rife in the RAF at the time, and several other books about them had already appeared, but Dahl was happy to boast that he had invented them. 'The Gremlins' was such a success that the self-dramatizing RAF hero became a frequent guest of Eleanor and Franklin D. Roosevelt at the White House and their weekend retreat, Hyde Park. This entrée was exploited by the British intelligence services, who made him a spy – on the Americans. Or so Dahl later claimed" (ODNB).

        Vote The Defeatists Out Of Public Office! Unconditional Surrender of the Hitler Axis and the 5th Column! All-Out Production For Victory

      New York: Artist's League of America, [ca 1943]. An extremely scarce example of an American hand-stenciled propaganda poster, inspired by and executed in the style of the Soviet "Tass Windows." The Artist's League of America was a group of socially-concerned artists in New York, organized in the wake of the American Artist's Congress and headed by such notable figures as Lynd Ward, Phillip Evergood, Rockwell Kent, Charles Keller and others. The "Victory Workshop" was a small working group within the ALA tasked with producing material to support the American war effort. The group held a well-publicized exhibition in March-April 1943 at the New School For Social Research, titled "Art, A Weapon of Total War", emphasizing work "[suitable for] murals and panels for factory rest-rooms, cafeterias, union halls and workers' housing....exhibition and silkscreen murals....window and lobby displays; and various visual aids" (see Hemingway, Artists on the Left: American Artists and the Communist Movement, 1926-1956, New Haven: 2002, p.192-194). It is at this exhibition that the current work, calling for a United Front against Hitler's Germany and the removal from public life of such divisive (i.e., anti-New Deal) figures as Dies, J. Edgar Hoover, Hamilton Fish, etc.& & The degree to which such Victory Workshop stencils can be attributed to Charles Keller is debatable; however, Keller is generally acknowledged to have been the main creative force behind the workshop and it ia likely that he at least played an overarching creative role in all posters produced there. Extremely rare; no other examples in commerce of any Victory Workshop works, and only one example known (of a different work) at the Wolfsonian Museum, Miami. Original stenciled poster in 7 panels, overall size approx. 52" x 76". Panels assembled at an early date (probably as issued), the whole professionaly stabilized and laid down on archival linen backing. Small losses at folds, slight offsetting at panel junctures from adhesive backing; still Very Good, with no incursions into image area. Grade B.

        Autoportrait (III) *

      1943. 1943 - Eau-forte originale 17 x 12, feuille 33 x 25, signée à la mine de plomb en bas à droite, tirée à 25 exemplaires numérotés par Reynold Disteli à Genève, encadrée. Belle épreuve que ce vernis mou désimposé dans le tirage de tête du livre de Francis Carco: Barraud un peintre chez lui ? Editions Galerie Beaux-Arts, Zurich 1943. Dans l'édition ordinaire, la reproduction est réduite et tirée en sauguine avec une cuvette fictive et trompeuse évoquant une estampe alors qu'il s'agit d'une impression en offset.Notre tirage mentionnant "Etat", comporte des traits de pointe sèche en rehauts.Il s'agit peut-être d'une planche d'essai, unique.C'est l'un des plus délicat autoportrait de l'auteur, qui a largement exploré le genre jusque dans moult dédicaces de livres où il aimait à se figurer, par dérision, coiffé de trois cheveux ? Il semble avoir été chauve assez jeune.[Cailler & Darel 230; Gindrat 29]

        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.

      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.

        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.
