        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.

        Four Jills in a Jeep (Original screenplay, copy belonging to soundtrack composer Jimmy McHugh)

      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.

        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

      Chowder Bay Press Sydney, Australia: Chowder Bay Press. 2012. Artist'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'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's musical score for piano, "Francis Webb's Song" printed on Rising Stonehenge paper. Francis Webb, well- regarded Australian poet and Adamson'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's work titled 'Harbourlights: the art of Peter Kingston' was published in 2004. Robert Adamson, one of Australia's leading poets, has been a key player in the growth of the 'New Australian Poetry' and was editor of the Poetry Society of Australia'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.

        Two Serious Ladies

      NY: Knopf. 1943. Her first book, a wartime production and a very scarce book in nice shape.

Laughlin's ownership label on the front flyleaf, with the holograph notation "Please return to." Cloth fraying at the spine extremities; near fine in a good dust jacket with only light edge wear but professionally strengthened on the verso along the edges and folds.

All right what about Kamrowski? -- Or Lee Bell? Or Jackson Pollock? -- Or Arthur Sturcke?" .

        Tibetan Word Book

      London: Oxford University Press, Indian Branch. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. 1943. First Edition. Hardcover. Circular blind-stamp of the "Preparatory Research Council / American Aero-Medical Mountain Mission" on the front endpaper and title page. Dust wrapper spine has some tears and losses and signs of label removal.; xvi, 447 pages. Green cloth boards. Page dimensions: 247 x 182mm.The dust wrapper and endpapers are of hand made paper manufactured in Bhutan for the Tibetan market. The front panel of the dust wrapper has the same type setting as the title page. Printed in India. Scarce, particularly with the dust wrapper. Aurel Stein's Preface is dated "Camp, Bahawalpur January 1, 1943". "His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Jetsun Jampel Ngawang Lobsang Yishe Tendzin Gyatsho, was born on the sixth of June 1935 near Kumbum in the district to the south-east of Lake Kokonor which the Tibetans call Amdo. A visit to Lhasa in 1940 in connexion with his installation gave opportunity for much of the work which has been done on these books. Based on an examination of syllables, the books show how it is that Dalai means Ocean, that Lama means one who is Above All, that Kumbum means the Hundred Thousand Images, that Lhasa means the Place of God, that the word Serthringaso which we render as Installation means the Request to Take Possession of the Golden Throne, and that the names of the Dalai Lama mean The Holy One, The Tender Glory, Mighty in Speech, Of Excellent Intellect, Of Absolute Wisdom, Holding the Doctrine, The Ocean" - from the author's "General Preface". Basil Gould and Hugh Richardson, working for the Indian Civil Service, featured very prominently in the story of Britain's political relations with Tibet in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Hugh Richardson became a notable British scholar of Tibetan history, many of Richardson's writings on Tibetan history were collected in the book "High Peaks, Pure Earth" (1998). For more on the British cadre in Tibet before 1950, see Alex McKay's "Tibet and the British Raj: The Frontier Cadre 1904-1947" (1997), and the works of Sir Charles Bell. ; 4to .

        Erläuterungen zu Hölderlins Dichtung. [Andenken an den Dichter. "Heimkunft/ An die Verwandten"].

      Frankfurt, Klostermann. [Freiburg im Breisgau, 1943]. 8vo. Original proof-sheets, with "Korrekturabzug 26. Nov. 1943" stamped to first leaf (i.e. half-title), held together by the contemporary/original paper-clip, inserted through holes in upper inner corner. Small nicks and tears to extremities of first and last leaf, not affecting text nor inscription. Several pencil-corrections, presumably in the hand of the recipient. 13 leaves, printed on rectos only, in consecutive order, being four unnumbered leaves (numbered in hand, in pencil 3,4,5,6) + pp. 7-15. WITH A SIGNED (M.H.) PRESENTATION-INSCRIPTION FROM HEIDEGGER TO FIRST LEAF: "Mit herzl. Gruß u. Dank / Freiburg 6. XII. 43 / M. H.". Original proof sheets, with a signed and dated presentation-inscription, for Heidegger's elucidation of Hölderlin's poem "Heimkunft/An die Verwandten", which was published in 1944, and which constitutes one of only six philosophical pieces that Heidegger publishes within the 10 year period between 1937 and 1947. Heidegger's memorial speech ("Andenken"), the six first pages of which are present here, together with his entire "Heimkunft/An die Verwandten", is a speech that Heidegger gave on the celebration of the 100th year of Hölderlin's death, at the University of Freiburg, July 6th 1943. The 100th year speech was centered around Hölderlin's poem "Heimkunft", which is present in its entirety. It was published in 1944, together with the 100th year speech and "Hölderlin und des Wesen der Dichtung" (originally published in 1936) under the title "Erläuterungen zu Hölderlin's Dichtung", the half-title, title-page, preface, and separate title for "Andenken an den Dichter. "Heimkunft/An die Verwandten" of which are also present here as proof sheets here. The interpretation of Heidegger's elucidation of Hölderlin's "Heimkunft" has played a significant role in Heidegger scholarship, both because it is one of merely six philosophical pieces that Heidegger writes over a period of 10 years, because these years cover the Second World War, and because the theme of the poem "Homecoming" - the transcendental homelessness from the fatherland - causes one to reflect over what connection the "fatherland" has with nationalism and patriotism, or whether, in this poem Heidegger rather sees "the fatherland" in the light of the broader history of being and the essence of Western fate
