        Shadows at Noon (First Edition, Signed in the Year of Publication)

      Chicago: Ziff-Davis, 1943. First Edition. First Edition. Near Fine in a Very Good or better example of the dust jacket. SIGNED and warmly inscribed in the year of publication by the author on the front endpaper. Apart from his screenplay work, Goldsmith authored only four books, including Detour. This book, an ambitious fantasy novel about the bombing of New York City, was the third. Goldsmith did not achieve notoriety as an author in his lifetime, and his signature is certainly uncommon.

      [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. Unsigned Playscript. 1st Edition.

        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."

        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.

Echoing the Soviet Five Year Plans and the Nazi government's Four Year Plan, Churchill attempts to catch the leftward drift of war-time public opinion in a speech which envisages the imposition of national insurance, the establishment of the National Health Service, the broadening of educational provision, and the rationalization of taxation.

        Where the Two Came to their Father: A Navaho War Ceremonial

      NY: Pantheon Books, (1943). Portfolio of eighteen large pochoir plates, together with a descriptive booklet containing text by Jeff King and commentary by noted mythologist Joseph Campbell. (18)ff; 84, (4)pp. First Bollingen edition; first issue booklet. The plates are reproductions of sand paintings by Navajo Shaman Jeff King, as recorded by the artist and ethnologist Maud Oakes. The original paintings were made in 1943 as part of a two-day ceremony to prepare young Navajo men who had been drafted into the army. The plates are printed in earth tones, reflecting the original materials used to create the paintings: cornmeal, ground flowers, pollens, and charcoal, typically on a background of buckskin or earth. King’s text explains the symbolism of each element of the images, and the painting’s ritual significance. According to King, Plate XIV: Earth and Sky, which shows sacred mountains beneath deities of sun, moon, and stars, is intended to give warriors “the strength and protection of their Earth Mother and Sky Father.” This is the first book in The Bollingen Series, which was established by philanthropists Paul Mellon and Mary Conover Mellon in 1943. The plates are housed in a buckram portfolio, and the booklet is bound in gray wrappers. Slight soiling and wear to spine of booklet; plates and portfolio fine and bright.

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1943. Revised Final script for the 1944 film musical, "Four Jills in a Jeep," directed by William A. Seiter, written for the screen by Robert Ellis, Helen Logan, Fred Niblo, Jr., Frome Sand, and Snag Werris (among these only Logan and Ellis--the latter uncredited in the final film--are credited here), and starring Kay Francis, Martha Raye, Carole Landis, and Mitzi Mayfair. & & This composer Jimmy McHugh's copy, with his name and phone number (BING 218) in holograph pencil at the top right corner of the front wrapper.
