        Murree - Srinagar - Nainital - Kashmir - Himalayan Regions

      Murree, Srinagar, Shimla, Agra, Delhi, Northern India, August 1943 - August 1946. Mini archive comprising two photograph albums with excellent views of northern India, two war campaign medals, and ephemeral documents including an army pass, of an English officer Stanley E. Dean of Warminster, Wiltshire, who was a surgeon with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section based in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, and serving in India during the Second World War. Together with 43 letters and 8 telegrams written by Dean to his wife Joan in England while away with the army. The albums together contain 321 gelatin silver print photographs, mostly snapshot views, with detailed manuscript captions, mounted onto cardstock leaves separated with tissue guards. An additional 7 photographs are loosely placed within. Two oblong 8vo. string-tied albums measuring approximately 26 x 19 cm, cloth boards, one brown, the other taupe. Front pastedown to second album is annotated and dated in manuscript. Fourteen (14) newspaper clippings are placed within the volumes alongside related photographs. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 5,5 x 5,5 cm, the largest 10 x 12 cm, and 2 panoramic views measuring 15,5 x 6 cm. The letters are numbered in manuscript by the writer, the vast majority accompanied by their original covers and written in 1946 from India. The telegrams precede the letters, most sent in 1943-1944. Two campaign medals and one accompanying ribbon bar were awarded to the officer for his service in India, here contained in the original O.H.M.S. box of issue with the entitlement notice leaf. Stanley E. Dean, Rank SGN, army identification number 14532788, received the Defence Medal and corresponding ribbon bar for his service in Bengal and Assam between 1 January 1944 and 2 September 1945, as well as the War Medal 1939-1945 for his full-time service in the war during its two latter years. A telegram herein, dated 5 October 1943, reveals that prior to serving abroad, he was an instructor at 48 Air School in Woodbrook, near East London, Eastern Cape. Nostalgic and striking views of Kashmir and Jammu, the Himalayan foothill regions, high altitude hill station towns, and New Delhi, are abundant in the two albums of photographs compiled surgeon Stanley Dean of the Royal Corps of Signals Telegraph Operating Section. Dean departed for India from Liverpool on 14 August 1943 with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section. During the Second World War, the Supplementary Air Formation Signals were augmented to at least nineteen units. Several were formed in Kirkburton in Yorkshire in 1943, some of which were for service India, their main purpose being to supply signal personnel for advanced air fields. The 19th regiment, for example, supported Gemeral Slim's 14th Army as it liberated Burma from the Japanese. On a grander scale, the Signals Units were tasked with improving signals, communications, and radar, which also involved improving the Indian Army post and telegraph departments, and constructing long-distance overhead carrier systems. Travelling and mountain trekking extensively throughout northern India, photographs capture the vastness of the mountainous region of Kashmir. Highlights include panoramic views of Nainital and of the Himalayan Range with the Nada Devi summit at its center, multiple views of Dal Lake near Srinagar some of which show the long houseboats for which it is famed, rare photographs of the Northwest Frontier customs post at Domel, nostalgic photographs of Shimla and Srinagar, and ancient ruins such as the Kashmiri Pandit Martand Sun Temple. His voyage home, departing from Bombay on 14 August 1946 precisely three years to the day after his departure from England, is captured in 20 photographs. The passage took him to Aden and through the Suez Canal, with a stop at Port Said. The first album begins in what is now Pakistan, with the scenes at the remote town of Jhika Gali and the Topa Hills. Superb professional photographs capture life in the historic town of Murree which was founded in 1851 as a sanatorium for British troops. At least one photograph shows the officer at Islamabad, now the capital city of Pakistan, with rickshaws behind him. Twelve images show army camp life on Kuldana Mountain, Murree, Pakistan. A cantonment named "Kuldana" was established in the 1860s by the British Army, in the verdant hills of Murree. [Several renowned British regiments have camped at Kuldana, some of which include the Northumberland Fusiliers, Devonshires, Duke of Wellington's, Leicestershires, Bedfordshires Regiment, 3rd Battalion The Rifle Brigade, 1st Battalion Gordon's Highlanders, West Yorkshires, East Surreys and 57th Wilde's Rifles.] Two (2) panoramic photographs and nineteen (19) other snapshot views capture the magnificent natural history of the lake and mountains of Naini Tal [Nainital], including Chena Peak [Cheena, china Peak], where the officer and some colleagues enjoyed their leave. A significant mountain climb affords a clear view of the Himalayan Range. The album continues at Simla [Shimla] in the Himalayan foothills with more high altitude treks, including a thirteen kilometer walk through forested hills to Wildflower Hall and the marker for Tibet. The famous Kohala bridge, which at the time marked the border between Kashmir State and the Northwest Frontier Province, was evidently crossed, as the officer ventured into what is Pakistan today. In the Jhelum Valley he takes notice of terraced hillsides and small river bank villages. Especially rare are the views of Domel, a little town complete with a Customs house, on the Northwest frontier border. One of the images shows a caravan of oxen-pulled tent carriages. A lovely and captivating visual memoire of Srinagar unfolds in some twenty-five photographs, featuring, as expected, its famous houseboats, but also other indigenous watercraft, and the Bund. - Kashmir - Jhelum Valley Nine photographs show officer Dean and company touring the Taj Mahal at Agra. He also visited the ruins of the Martand Sun Temple which overlooks the whole of the Kashmir Valley, and the ruins of Awantipora. The other album is centered in and around Delhi, in the year 1945. Pertaining to the war, are scenes of the airshow which took place in March of 1945 at the Willingdon Airport [now Safdarjung Airport]. Also part of the five-day 'Victory Celebration,' Dean photographs the parade participants including an Indian regiment, a Scottish bagpipe procession, the Women's Royal Naval Service (Wrens), a camel corps, a group of Naga tribesmen from Burma, among others. A tour of Old Delhi features the historic Red Fort with five snapshot views taken of its interior, the Ghantaghar clock tower in the famous Chandni Chowk market as seen from Nai Sarak street, and other street scenes busy with pedestrians and cyclists, and a tram. [From 1908 to 1963 trams operated in Old Delhi] In New Delhi, the officer visited the Lakshmi Narayan Temple and courtyard [Laxminarayan Temple, Birla Mandir Temple] which had only recently been completed in 1939, the Jama Masjid mosque, and the India Gate memorial next to the King George Memorial. Another view from the memorial site provides a distant snapshot view of the ancient fort called Purana Qila, with the King George V Coronation Memorial, complete with statue standing in the foreground [the statue has since been relocated, leaving only the canopy structure]. A tour of the Qutb complex results in lovely snapshot images, inclding a view of the Qutub Minar iron pillara which is famous for its testament to skillful ironwork of ancient times. Other views include Rashtrapati Bhavan, a Presidential Residence formerly known as Viceroy's House and now the official home of the President of India, including views of the Mughal Garden and Viceregal Garden, and the circular shaped Council House, built between 1921-1927, and which is now the Parliament Building [The opening ceremony was performed on 18 January 1927 by Lord Irwin, the then Viceroy of India.] Here he also includes photographs of the Corps of Signals' Headquarters and telegraph operations systems. The Defence Medal is a campaign medal which was instituted by the United Kingdom in May 1945, to be awarded to subjects of the British Commonwealth for non-operational service in the Armed Forces, the Home Guard, the Civil Defence Service, and other approved civilian services during the period from 3 September 1939 to 2 September 1945, inclusive. It was issued for specific campaigns and service parameters, including service in Bengal and Assam, west of the Brahmaputra, from 1 January 1944 to 2 September 1945. The War Medal 1939-1945 is a campaign medal which was instituted by the United Kingdom on 16 August 1945, for award to subjects of the British Commonwealth who had served full-time in the Armed Forces or the Merchant Navy for at least 28 days between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945. Signalling in the British Army was the responsibility of the Telegraph Battalion until 1908 when the Royal Engineers Signal Service was formed. The Royal Corps of Signals was officially come to be on 28th June 1920, then simply called Corps of Signals. Before the outbreak of the Second World War, recruits were required to be a minimum of 5 feet 2 inches tall, all recruits were taught to ride horses, and they did their signal training at Catterick, North Yorkshire. During the Second World War, the majority of the Corps was stationed overseas, with around a third stationed in India. Participating in every major battle, at the end of the war the Corps numbered 8,518 officers and 142,472 soldiers. The Corps motto is Certa Cito, which translates to Swift and Sure.

        Lettre autographe signée à Denise Rollin : «Maintenant je n'aspire plus qu'à une chose c'est à vous prouver que je n'appartiens plus qu'à vous, que je suis rivé à vous [.]»

      1943 - - s.l. s.d. [circa 1940-1943], 20,7x27 mm, 2 pages sur un feuillet. - Belle et longue lettre autographe signée de Georges Bataille à Denise Rollin, inédite, déchirée en cinq morceaux n'affectant pas la lecture, 34 lignes à l'encre noire sur un feuillet. Fréquentant tous les deux les milieux intellectuels et artistiques parisiens, Georges Bataille et Denise Rollin se rencontrèrent au cours de l'année 1939. Elle fut notamment l'amie de Cocteau, Prévert et Breton. Bataille la décrivit ainsi dans ses carnets pour Le Coupable : « une illusion aussi fragile qui se dissiperait au moindre souci, au moindre relâchement de l'inattention. » Il reste peu de détails sur leur relation car la vie privée de Georges Bataille, particulièrement à cette époque, n'est pas tant documentée. Il apparaît dans cette lettre les sentiments profonds que Denise Rollin provoquaient chez Bataille : « Maintenant je n'aspire plus qu'à une chose c'est à vous prouver que je n'appartiens plus qu'à vous, que je suis rivé à vous [.] » L'absolu de cet amour est tel que Bataille est prêt à tout : « [.] que vous le sachiez à tel point que si je ne devais plus avoir d'autre moyen qu'une profanation pour vous le prouver, je ferais devant vous cette profanation. » Il se sent pourtant coupable : « Je ne peux pas parler de l'état auquel je suis arrivé, je suis trop agité. Je sens, j'espère que c'est absurde. J'ai honte même de tant souffrir et de vous ennuyer avec ma souffrance quand vous seule êtes malade. » L'année précédente, il avait perdu sa compagne des suites de la tuberculose. Démuni devant la maladie, il admet : « [.] moi je ne peux pas vous guérir, je ne peux même pas vous soigner [.] » Seule Denise Rollin serait capable de l'apaiser : « Tout était noir auparavant [.] ce que je souffre et que vous pouvez si facilement guérir chaque fois que vous le voudrez [.] ». Abandonné aux affres de l'angoisse, Bataille admet : « Je suis tellement fou en ce moment (et de cela je veux vous parler) que je ressens comme une complicité et une perfidie de tous pour me faire mal, comme si vous vous prêtiez au jeu pour que je sois encore plus désespéré [.] » Au bord de la paranoïa, il supplie Rollin : « La seule chose dont je veux vous supplier [.], c'est de ne plus douter sans cesse de moi comme vous l'avez fait. » Il comprend pourtant : « [.] il y avait en moi et dans mon passé de quoi vous paraître insupportable [.] » Il lui offre une solution : « Ce qui m'apaiserait le plus si vous m'écriviez, ce serait que vous me disiez que vous me croyez, que vous voulez bien que je sois votre chose. » [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Beautiful and long autograph letter signed by Georges Bataille to Denise Rollin.

        Panzer vorwärts! . . aber mit Verstand. 30 Kampfgrundsätze, von einem Kompanie-Chef aufgestellt und zusammengefasst aufgrund der Erfahrungen des Feldzuges gegen Sowjet-Russland

      Wünsdorf, Verlag der Vorschriftenstelle der Panzertruppen Wünsdorf Kreis Teltow, um 1943. - Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband kl.8vo im Format 13 x 18 cm) mit farbig illustriertem Deckeltitel. 63 Seiten, mit Einem Geleitwort des General-Inspekteurs der Panzertruppen Heinz Guderian und vielen ganzseitigen Farbzeichnungen. Die Tips lauten wie z.B.: "Ein Panzerangriff ist nie so eilig - auch dann nicht, wenn höchste Eile gefordert wird - als daß Du nicht noch Zeit hättest, Deine Unterführer über Lage, Auftrag und besonders über Deine beabsichtigte Kampfführung zu unterrichten. Verluste, die durch einen überhasteten Angriff eintreten, kannst Du nicht verantworten, ganz abgesehen davon, daß auch der Erfolg infrage gestellt wird / Angreifende Feind-Panzer darfst Du nie angreifen, da sie Dich dann vorzeitig sehen und deine Stärke erkennen, ehe Du ihnen Schaden zufügen kann; vielmehr muss Du geschickt ausweichen, um sie in einer günstigen Feuerstellung auflaufen zu lassen und sie dann überraschend in der Flanke oder im Rücken anzugreifen und zu vernichten. Geschlagenen Panzerfeind musst Du aus eigenem Entschluss rücksichtslos verfolgen! / Vergiss nie, daß Deine Soldaten nicht Dir gehören, sondern Deutschland! Persönlicher Ehrgeiz und sinnloses Draufgängertum führen nur in Ausnahme-Fällen zum Erfolg, kosten aber fast immer Blut; im Kampf gegen die Sowjets-Russen musst du Deine Tapferkeit mit Deinem Verstand, Deiner List, Deinem Gefühl und Deinem taktischen Können verbinden. Nur so hast Du die Voraussetzung, im Gefecht siegreich zu sein, und nur dann werden Deine Soldaten Dir vertrauen, Dich verehren und Dir stets in unermüdlicher Einsatzbereitschaft im Kampf treu zur Seite stehen!" - Später Kriegsdruck, Erstausgabe in guter Erhaltung (Einband etwas stockfleckig, sonst sehr gut). - Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Großdeutschland im 2.Weltkrieg, Panzerkampf an der Ostfront, deutsche Panzer gegen die Rote Armee, illustrierte Bücher, Wehrmacht im Kampfeinsatz, Landser am Feind, Hinweise und Tips für die Panzertruppe, Kriegführung im Nationalsozialismus Versand an Institutionen auch gegen Rechnung Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 2000 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Flash Spencer - No. 2

      1943. Very Good. Loose quarto sheets brad bound into blank manilla folder. 42pp., illustrated rectos only. Very good with folder toned with a nick at the foredge and the first interior sheets with some rubbing and a tiny tear. A delightful and ambitious hand drawn comic by Russ Smith in the style of the Golden Age comic books of the day. A header on each page reads "Army-Navy" suggesting Smith may have been an soldier but this is only speculation. Likely inspired by the matinee adventures of Flash Gordon, this comic follows Flash Spencer, "Captain of the Space Patrol," taking on an alien scouting party headquartered in a hidden mountain base. Spencer defeats enemy ships, infiltrates the base, and faces down a monstrous beast while his men rush to his aid. Each page is hand drawn and inked, then embellished with color pencils. While not a professional artist, Smith's illustrations express a charming enthusiasm and a flair for page layout with a use of large and small panels at a time when many commercial comics stuck to six and eight panel grids. Only the first page (or "cover") is left somewhat unfinished with some pencil background details not inked and only the hero's tunic colored. Given the level of work that went into this issue, we strongly suspect there was indeed a first issue and the final panel teaser of the next issue, "The Invasion of Earth," was a serious pursuit. Obviously unique.

        Souvenirs de Captivité 17 juin 1940 - 16 aout 1941

      Paris: Printed by Draeger Frères for the author, 1943. Limited First edition. Softcover. vg. 1/50. Folio (12 x 9 1/4"). 95, [3]pp. Original printed dust-jacket over blind wrappers. Published in June 1943 in occupied France, this illustrated diary depicts not without a good sense of humor various episodes of the author's captivity in a German prisoner-of-war camp from June 1940 to August 1941. Jean Dugrenot was captured in the later stages of the Battle of France, on June 17, 1940. He was first interned in Nuremberg, then Munster. Some of the author's drawings featured in this work depict French prisoners of war in the shower, in the restrooms, exercising outside their barracks, studying, eating their meager meals, etc.. In 1941, Jean Dugrenot was fortunate enough to be part of an early limited repatriation of certain classes of POWs, which started to occur in the Fall of 1940. Indeed, the Vichy French government was keen to encourage the return of prisoners, even launching the unpopular 'relève' system in order to exchange prisoners of war for French laborers going to work in Germany. Nevertheless, many prisoners remained in German captivity until the defeat of Germany in 1945. One of 50 copies on Vélin de Rives, of which this is No. 33. Minor offsetting at lower margin of dust-jacket. Text and captions in French. DJ in overall good+ to very good, wrappers and interior in very good condition.

A header on each page reads "Army-Navy" suggesting Smith may have been an soldier but this is only speculation. Likely inspired by the matinee adventures of Flash Gordon, this comic follows Flash Spencer, "Captain of the Space Patrol," taking on an alien scouting party headquartered in a hidden mountain base. Spencer defeats enemy ships, infiltrates the base, and faces down a monstrous beast while his men rush to his aid. Each page is hand drawn and inked, then embellished with color pencils. While not a professional artist, Smith's illustrations express a charming enthusiasm and a flair for page layout with a use of large and small panels at a time when many commercial comics stuck to six and eight panel grids. Only the first page (or "cover") is left somewhat unfinished with some pencil background details not inked and only the hero's tunic colored. Given the level of work that went into this issue, we strongly suspect there was indeed a first issue and the final panel teaser of the next issue, "The Invasion of Earth," was a serious pursuit. Obviously unique.

        Nine James Cagney Letters to Artist Will Crawford, Totaling 19 Pages, with Original Photo and Drawing

      1943 - A collection of Two Autographed Letters Signed and seven Typed Letters Signed from screen legend James Cagney (1899-1986) to his close friend, artist Will Crawford (1869-1944), dating from 1926 to 1943. Also with two Signed letters (one typed and the other in holograph) from the actor's wife, Frances "Billie" Cagney; an original photo of the three of them together; and an envelope addressed and illustrated by Crawford to Cagney. The letters have some toning due to age and a couple of oxidation spots but are in remarkably nice shape; on average they are near fine or better.As newlyweds in the 1920 the Cagneys lived in the Free Acres artist colony in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. There they formed a bond with Crawford, an original Free Acres resident and career artist who illustrated a host of children's books and popular magazines, including Puck, The Century, McClure's, Scribner's, and Redbook. It was a relationship that lasted until Crawford's death in 1944.The letters to Crawford stretch from Cagney's early years as a vaudevillian player to his emergence as one of the biggest stars of the silver screen. They demonstrate Cagney's close friendship with the older artist as evidenced by his financial assistance to Crawford, visits to Crawford from California, and even a special effort to arrange a meeting between Crawford and the noted journalist Lincoln Steffens. The letters reveal Cagney as a man who never forgot his friends or stopped giving to those for whom he cared and who needed it most. A wonderful collection of letters that present a peek into the private life of a true Hollywood legend.James Cagney Letters1. ALS, 4pp., [No place: 1926]. A somewhat glum letter from before he was a star. In it he describes doing some vaudeville to "keep the wolf away," and how he would like to "chuck it all. But it can't be done."2. TLS, 1p., Beverly Hills, California: August 9, 1933. Explains why he hasn't been home to visit, that his latest film shoots for another six weeks, and that he will be in New York this fall but "don't mention that to anybody as I don't want to be bothered with publicity stunts and fan troubles."3. ALS, 6pp., [No place]: November 15, 1933. He describes a visit to see muckraking journalist and communist sympathizer Lincoln Steffens, his plan to get Steffens and Crawford together for dinner as soon as he finishes filming "this next bit of tripe," and a few complaints about getting paid: "these bastards out here who pay out the checks find a way to keep me dangling . They steal my time -- and my life. And what do I get --- a fortune! Isn't it awful!?!?!"4. TLS, 2pp., Beverly Hills, California: June 11, 1935, written on Cagney's stationery. Some comments about doing some amateur wood carving, offering to return some antique guns he purchased from Crawford, and a mention of mutual friends, including blacklisted actor Vic Killain who was also from Free Acres.5. TLS, 2pp., Beverly Hills, California: February 17, 1936, written on Cagney's stationery. A letter concerning some deceitful behavior involving the sale of his house in Free Acres, the profit of which was to be used to help pay some of Crawford's bills.6. TNS, 1p., Beverly Hills, California: September 16, 1941, written on Cagney's stationery. A quick note to say he received Crawford's letter and would get back to him soon.7. TLS, 1p., Beverly Hills, California: August 5, 1942, written on Cagney's stationery. A short letter saying he is glad to hear Crawford is out of the hospital after a fall and that he will be visiting "unless the Government keeps me too occupied." Likely a reference to his USO efforts during WWII.8. TLS, 1p., Beverly Hills, California: December 26, 1942, written on Cagney's stationery and with original mailing envelope. Cagney expressing his happiness at Crawford having a new place to live, some nostalgic reminiscences about watching snow fall at Free Acres, and a few comments about Christmas Day.9.

        The Way Some People Live

      New York: Random House. (1943). First. First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a very small nick near the base of the spine and a faint spot on the spine, but an especially bright and fine example. Signed by the author and dated in 1976. Cheever's uncommon first book, a collection of short fiction that he never allowed to be reprinted. Only three of the stories have ever been subsequently printed, in an obscure paperback published in the 1960s. Consequently Cheever was loathe to sign copies, and this is one of only a very few thus. Combined with the especially nice condition, this may be the best copy we've seen. .

        The command to look by Mortensen, William

      Camera Craft, 1943-01-01. Third Printing. Very Good/Spiral-Bound Illustrated Wraps. Spiral-bound Softcover-1943 Third Printing Camera Craft Publishing 190 pages. Very Good in spiral bound illustrated wraps. Minor shelf/edge wear to covers-one small closed tear to front cover and one to the rear cover. No other notes or writing-All pages are bright, clean and crisp. If you're a professional photographer, you either already have this on your shelf, or are looking to put it there. That goes double if you are interested in the occult. A classic in understanding how to make a picture effective, commanding in presence and necessary to look at. Images from this book have influenced the occult founder of the Church of Satan, Anton Szandor LaVey. Lavey acknowledged his debt to Mortensen on various occasions, most prominently in the first edition of The Satanic Bible. This featured a dedication page containing nineteen names, together with a short descriptive phrase for each (the list does not appear in later editions). occultists, scientists, thinkers, artist, explorers and entertainers are included - some of them are famous, but others are obscure. The eighth name certainly falls into the latter category: " William Mortensen, who looked...and saw " . Blanche Barton, LaVeys partner, confidante and biographer relates in her biography of LaVey, The Secret Life of a Satanist, in the chapter, Angles of Madness, writes that the future Black pope discovered Mortensen's The Command to Look as a teenager in the 1940s. He recognized its importance at once. Here was a manual of magical theory that was itself occult, in the sense of being hidden in plain sight, concealed between the covers of a seemingly innocuous handbook for amateur photographers. In the years that followed his discovery, Lavey picked up every Mortensen book he could get his hands on, and also visited exhibitions of Mortensen's work. Scarce in any original printing.LOC-SSS-34

        The Atlantic Charter. The President of the United States of America and the Prime Minister, Mr. Churchill, representing His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom, being met together, deem it right to make known certain common principles in the national policies of their respective countries on which they base their hopes for a better future for the world.

      Washington, DC: Office of War Information, 1943 - Folio broadside (712 x 507 mm): OWI Poster No. 50. Creased where folded, one panel on verso toned and with a few ink splashes. In excellent condition. An attractive copy of the decidedly uncommon Atlantic Charter poster issued by the US Office of War Information: no copy located by Copac in any British or Irish institutional library; OCLC cites copies at McGill, Penn State, New York Public Library, Wooster, Denison, West Texas A&M only. "The Atlantic Charter was a joint declaration released by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill on August 14, 1941 following a meeting of the two heads of state in Newfoundland. The Atlantic Charter provided a broad statement of US and British war aims. Churchill and Roosevelt met on August 9 and 10, 1941 aboard the USS Augusta in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, to discuss their respective war aims for the Second World War and to outline a postwar international system. The Charter they drafted included eight 'common principles' that the United States and Great Britain would be committed to supporting in the postwar world. Both countries agreed not to seek territorial expansion; to seek the liberalization of international trade; to establish freedom of the seas, and international labor, economic, and welfare standards. Most importantly, both the United States and Great Britain were committed to supporting the restoration of self-governments for all countries that had been occupied during the war and allowing all peoples to choose their own form of government. While the Atlantic Charter of August 1941 was not a binding treaty, it was, nonetheless, significant for several reasons. First, it publicly affirmed the sense of solidarity between the U.S. and Great Britain against Axis aggression. Second, it laid out President Roosevelt's Wilsonian-vision for the postwar world; one that would be characterized by freer exchanges of trade, self-determination, disarmament, and collective security. Finally, the Charter ultimately did serve as an inspiration for colonial subjects throughout the Third World, from Algeria to Vietnam, as they fought for independence" (US Office of the Historian online). This handsomely printed poster, designed by the distinguished typographer W. A. Dwiggins, has echoes of eighteenth century proclamations - from the choice of typeface to the distinctive bracketing of the names of Roosevelt and Churchill - lending the piece a gravitas and a sense of "the weight of history".

        Photo Album): A Photo Album of an Ohio Family's Life through Two Generations, 1918 to 1943

      Canton, Ohio / Chicago 1943 - Oblong quarto measuring 11" x 7". String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 295 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1" x 2.5" and 4.5" x 4" with some captions. Cover and first page detached but present, small chips and tears thus good with fine photographs. A collection of photographs from Canton, Ohio in 1918 through 1943 showing a young woman's family and friends when she is a young girl and following her life until she has children of her own. There are two magazine cut outs showing the "Members of the Ohio State Dental Laboratory Guild and Their Ladies," in which the woman is seen with her husband F. C. Hoffman. The first few photos are of the woman's family standing solemnly together with very few smiles; however, the vast majority of the photos are of the woman and her friends having adventures together. Some of the photos are of the young people at a lake, swimming at the beach, camping in the woods, and visiting different cities and locations some of which include Chicago and Geneva, Ohio. Later photos show the group of friends getting older, having kids, and then their kids becoming adults in a 25 year time span. The woman's son at 18, is pictured wearing a World War II Army uniform in some of the last photos of the album. This extensive multiple era piece shows three decades of fashion, automobiles, and general tom-foolery that young people of the time got into in Ohio. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
