        Personal Diary while I was in Mesopotamia [manuscript]. T. W. Slingsby. December 13, 1916-June 30, 1918

      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 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#OB760b.

        The Fountainhead [Signed]

      Indianapolis - New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943. Signed by Ayn Rand on signature cut adhered inside front board. First edition, early issue. Contains first edition points (errors): page number 9 appears as o; referred mispelled refrred at 5th line of page 321; G. W. at page 381; Dominique mispelled Domininque at page 480. Navy full-cloth boards, gilt cover and spine titles, moderate shelf wear. Pages fine; no writing. Architect dedication at copyright page. Bind fine; hinges intact. Fine facsimile of original first edition wrapper; protected in new clear sleeve. Very attractive. An unprecedented phenomenon in modern literature. Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, when first published it created a public furor and worldwide interest in Ayn Rand. On the surface, it is the story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. In his fight for success, he first discovers then rejects the seductive power of fame and money, finding that individual integrity must ultimately triumph. Also addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the creative soul, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism, whether overt or hidden. The confrontation of these themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give The Fountainhead its enduring influence. More relevant today than when written. 754 pages. Insured post.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.

      London: Benj. Dodd, August 1743 . First Edition. Hardcover. Four vignettes partially hand-colored, browning and occasional moderate waterstaining, final leaf trimmed, a few contemporary marginal notes. A Very Good, attractive example, nearly complete but for the missing half of the table, of this uncommon early title with much on the American colonies. George Bickham. Folio (7-1/2" x 12-1/2") bound in contemporary marbled boards rebacked with a modern calf spine and a maroon gilt-lettered leather spine label. Engraved frontispiece of Britannia (strengthened), title, "Conditions," subscribers' list (2 leaves), engraved double-page map, engraved table (torn at fold with half loss), and 190 numbered plates (lacking plate 163, which is the missing half of the previously noted table), plates 83 and 164 loosely inserted from another copy). All pages entirely engraved and printed on the recto only, with most pages illustrated. Among the illustrations are four maps, numerous scenic views, and vignettes of people engaged in various activities. Separate title page dated 1747 for the American Colonies section which includes 21 pages with illustrations of Native Americans, colonists, ships, etc., with descriptions of Carolina, New England, Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. Africa and India are also represented, though very briefly. Sabin 5222. Contemporary armorial bookplate of James Norman, likely a relation to John Norman, a listed subscriber, on the front pastedown. The title page is a subscribers variant, with non-subscribers editions omitting "Proposals for Engraving by Subscription" and with a different imprint. George Bickham the Elder (1684-1758) was an English writing master and engraver. He is best known for his engraving work in THE UNIVERSAL PENMAN, a collection of writing exemplars which helped to popularize the English Round Hand script in the 18th century.

      New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1943. First Edition. Hardcover. Small owner's address label on the front endpaper, gilt on the front cover and spine strong. The dustwrapper is bright and attractive free from any major defect but for a large chip at the head of the spine, extending to 1-3/4" at its deepest and obliterating nearly all of the title. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. Autobiography and first book by one of our greatest songwriters, author of this country's unofficial national anthem, "This Land Is Your Land." This title, quite scarce in the first edition, especially in dustwrapper, served as the basis for the Hal Ashby film starring David Carradine. Bob Dylan, in his autobiography CHRONICLES, recounts reading BOUND FOR GLORY for the first time: "I went through it from cover to cover like a hurricane, totally focused on every word, and the book sang out to me like the radio.... BOUND FOR GLORY is a hell of a book. It's huge. Almost too big.

      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.

        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.

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.

        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.
