        The Little Prince

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Book very Nearly Fine with clean, bright cloth and internal contents in excellent condition. Very slight mottling to the cloth otherwise a Fine copy. The dust jacket is Near Fine with two short tears and a small wrinkle at the base of the spine and a faint offset on the front panel, otherwise an excellent example. "The Little Prince" is the best-selling French language book of all time, beloved around the world. It tells the story of a pilot, stranded in the Sahara, who encounters the Little Prince, visiting our world for a brief time before returning to his home planet. Unlike so many children's books with one simple message, "The Little Prince" offers several profound insights for readers of all ages. "Antoine de Saint-Exupery, most metaphysical of aviators... has written a fairy tale for grownups. The symbolism is delicate and tenuous. It challenges man the adult, and deplores the loss of the child in man." (Contemporary review in "Time" magazine). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

      , 1943. 1943. Good. OZAKI Kohachi, author. ONCHI Ko^shiro. KOMAKUSA. To^kyo^,Sho^wa 18 [1943]. Single sheet, 29.2 x 34.3 cm. Meant to fold in fourths as a simple species of "book" during the wartime shortage of paper. The lightly colored woodblock print by Onchi is some 11.0 x 15.4 cm. It was cut and printed by members of the Hanga Kurabu. Ozaki [1892-1974] had known Onchi for many years when he collaborated with him on this little illustrated poem, named after a species of mountain flower common to Japan. Extremely ephemeral. I can find no reference to it in either the English language or Japanese sources, nor does it appear in the Onchi print raisonne. It has, of course, been folded and then flattened again. Overall good condition, a good impression of the print.

        (Manhattan Project) LA Report 24. Lecture Series on Nuclear Physics.

      A rare pre-publication copy of the Manhattan Project Lecture Series on Nuclear Physics. The text comprises forty-one talks on nuclear physics given by the project's leaders between September 14, 1943 and March 12, 1944. Like everything produced at Los Alamos, these lectures were highly classified. Only a small number of copies were mimeographed for the use of high-level employees, and it is likely that many of them were destroyed for security reasons before the content was declassified in October 1945. The texts were first officially published by the US Government Printing Office in 1947. Only three other copies of the mimeographed edition have appeared at auction, and a global library catalogue search through WorldCat locates eight in institutions. Given the secrecy and scarcity of pre-publication copies, this copy must have originally belonged to a Project employee. It bears the ownership inscription and manuscript notes of Princeton student John "Jack" Howard Irving, so the original owner was almost certainly either Walter Kauzmann or Eugene Wigner, both of whom worked on the Manhattan Project and taught Irving at Princeton after the War. Jack Irving earned his undergraduate degree at Caltech in 1942. He worked at MIT's Rad Lab during the war and completed his MA in Physics at Princeton between 1946 and 1948. He then accepted a fellowship to study statistical mechanics at Caltech, after which he became Head of Systems Planning and Analysis at Hughes Aircraft, where his group developed the first airborne digital computer for fighter aircraft. In 1954 he joined the Ramo-Wooldridge Corporation where he worked on synchronous orbit satellites, and in 1960 he was hired by the not-for-profit Aerospace Corporation as head of the Systems Research and Planning Division. Irving returned to Princeton to complete his PhD between 1963 and 1965. (Los Angeles Times obituary, November 16, 2008.) The Princeton Mudd Manuscript Library has confirmed the dates Irving was a student at the school and informed us that that a number of his classes and most of his dissertation and research work was done with Eugene Wigner. The title of his dissertation was Wigner Distribution Functions in Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, and Walter Kauzmann served as one of the principal examiners. While it is possible this was Wigner's copy, Kauzmann returned to Princeton from the Manhattan Project in 1946, about a year before Wigner, and the ownership inscription on the cover is dated 1946. It therefore seems likely that Kauzmann gave or loaned this copy to Irving during the first year of his MA.  There are manuscript annotations in pen and ink throughout the text, and while most of the ink (and a few other pencil) annotations appear to be Irving's, there are a number of pencil notations in an unidentified hand. They are not Wigner's, and while it is possible they could be Kauzmann's, we have been unable to verify one way or the other. The lectures printed here include an introductory series on terminology and basic nuclear physics by E. M. McMillan; a series on radioactivity, including radioactive decay, particle interactions, and the properties of nuclei, by Emilio Segrè, Edward Teller, and Felix Bloch; six lectures on neutron physics by J. H. Williams; four lectures on the two-body problem and proton/neutron interactions by C. L. Critchfield; a series on the statistical theory of nuclear reactions by Victor Weisskopf; a series on diffusion theory, including the damping of neutrons, by Robert F. Christy. [Los Alamos, NM: Los Alamos Scientific Laboratories, 1943-44.] Perfect bound in contemporary brown Accopress card binder, 329 mimeographed leaves printed on the rectos only. Hand-written title and ownership stickers to the upper cover. Contemporary or near-contemporary pencil and ink annotations to the text. A little rubbing and some spots to the binder, lower corner of binder torn, contents faintly toned. Excellent condition.

Wie im Vorjahr haben wir uns bemüht, allen etwas zu geben. Den Volksgenossen, die aus den Gauen des Reiches herkamen, um in der deutschen Verwaltungs-und Parteiarbeit, im Rahmen des Wirtschaftsausbaus oder als Soldaten und Männer von SS und Polizei hier ihre Pflicht zu tun.

Treasury Department-issued War Bonds poster, featuring an illustration of a Russian peasant woman weeping in front of the smoking rubble of her home directly beneath the slogan "...and WE talk about sacrifice."

        [MISSIONARY; NEW GUINEA] Dictionnaire Français-Pokao & Roro

      par le P. Paolo Coluccia M.S.C. compilé à Waima le 27-X-1943. Quarto, palm leaf wrappers (some loss to the edges and along spine), stitched, front endpaper and title with the violet wet stamp of the Roman Catholic Mission, Yule Island (run by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Issoudun), typescript, the title bearing a presentation inscription, 'En hommage à Son Excellence Andreas Sorin. Votre in Corde Jesu, P. Paolo Coluccia MSC', 575 pp, contents clean and sound. In all likelihood this is a unique copy of Father Coluccia's dictionary of the Austronesian languages Pokao and Roro, which are spoken by three tribal groups on the New Guinea mainland and on Yule Island, to the immediate northwest of Port Moresby. It appears that this copy, compiled by Father Coluccia at his mission station on the mainland, is the original, and possibly the only copy of this work, and that it was formerly in the possession of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bereina, Bereina, Papua. This copy was filmed to create the microform version made by the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau, Canberra.

        Original cartoon illustration, "The Colossus Leans," ca 1943

      [ca 1943]. A large and accomplished caricature in which a panicked Hitler attempts to prop up a collapsing statue of Mussolini; probably drawn following the Allied invasion of Sicily in July, 1943. Groth was at this time Art Director for Parade Publications, for which this cartoon was likely illustrated (though we are unsure whether it was ever published). Though best remembered as a wartime sketch-artist and book illustrator, Groth began his career as a printmaker and cartoonist very much in the social-realist mold, publishing some of his earliest work in such left-wing forums as The New Masses and PM. He was also the first Art Director at Esquire, which was founded in 1933. Groth's mastery as a printmaker is on display in these early works, which manage to convey a simultaneous sense of urgency and delicacy which would become the hallmark of his battlefield sketches made during WW2 and the Korean War. Original cartoon illustration in black ink on watercolor paper; sheet size 63cm x 50cm (ca 24-13/4" x 19-3/4"). Signed in ink lower right. Drawing spotted and lightly soiled; glue remnants to margin, apparently from a removed mat; title in pencil below image; Very Good.

        Maine Patriarch in a Rocking Chair

      Robinhood, Maine: 1943. Watercolor. Signed and dated lower right. 18.5 x 13 inches on watercolor paper; matted. Provenance: Estate of the artist. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1919, Jason Schoener came from a family of distinguished American artists. He was the nephew of sculptor/painter William Zorach and his wife, painter Marguerite Zorach. Beginning in 1939, Schoener spent his summers at the Zorach family farm in Georgetown, Maine, where he studied art with his Uncle William. After service in the Pacific during WWII, Schoener served as an instructor, department chairman, and dean at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA. Schoener's other teaching assignments included Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Athens Technological Institute in Greece. Meanwhile, Schoener continued to use his Georgetown and then Robinhood homes Maine as a summer studio. Over the span of almost two decades, Schoener had several solo exhibitions at the Midtown Gallery on East 57th Street in New York City. His works are in many museum and private collections, including the Oakland Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York. He died in 1997.

      Bierens de Haan 1943; Cat. NHSM, p. 687; Crone Library 807, cf. pp. xlvii-xlviii; Maritieme Gesch. der Nederlanden III, p. 216; Picarta (2 copies); Saakes VIII, pp. 371-372; WorldCat (same 2 copies). Very rare first edition of a guide introducing Hazewinkel's method of calculating latitude, which was subsequently implemented as the standard method in the national Dutch marine and remained in use until the end of the 19th century. This method by Abraham Cornelis Hazewinkel (1772-1842), a ship's captain who established a Dordrecht school for training sailors in 1817, was also invented simultaneously, but independently, by the Dutch mathematician Rehuel Lobatto (1797-1866), and is known as the Lobatto-Hazewinkel method. It replaced the longer method of Cornelis Douwes, introduced in the late 18th century. An equally rare second edition, published in 1839, was reprinted in facsimile in 1992.With a library stamp on title-page, some occasional foxing, one leaf slightly soiled in the lower margins, binding slightly rubbed and rebacked, with the top of the spine torn. Good nearly untrimmed copy, with most of the deckles intact.

        Christmas - This Way! [with] Original Brass binding die-stamp for the spine of the book

      Oxford University Press, New York 1943 - First edition. Illustrated by Robb Beebe. Octavo. Slight wear, about fine in handsome near fine dustwrapper with a short tear and modest age-toning.[With]: Original brass binding die stamp for the spine of the book. Approximately 0.5" x 6.75". A little tarnished, else near fine. The die reads (in reverse lettering): "Beebe / Christmas This Way / Oxford".The provenance presents a mildly interesting story: a local colleague was buying books out of the trunk of a gentleman's car and came across a bag of brass die-stamps from the Oxford University Press from the late 1930s through the early 1950s, when Oxford did much of their printing in the U.S. My colleague inquired and the gentleman revealed that his next stop was the scrap yard where he was going to sell the dies to be melted down for the brass. My colleague paid him double the scrap price for them. We paid a bit more. In any event, a unique artifact from this charming children's book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      New York: Pantheon Books / Bollingen Series, 1943. [8],84,[4]pp. Quarto book of text, in printed wrappers, accompanied by printed cloth portfolio (62 x 47 cm) with ribbon ties, containing eighteen original color pochoir prints. The upper and lower paper folding flaps enclosing the plates are a bit rumbled and snagged, slight bumps to extreme lower corner of a few plates, some occasional isolated marginal smudges or tiny spots (some inherent in paper), otherwise an unusually nice set, very good to near fine. The uncommon and beautiful first edition of the first publication in the numbered sequence of the Bollingen Series, and one of the most elaborate productions to appear under its imprint. Jeff King (Hashkeh-yilth-e- yah; 1865-1964) lived on the Pinedale Navaho Reservation, and performed this ritual on the occasion of the departure of Navaho men to serve in the US Army during WWII. Oakes, who was then living on the reservation, was allowed to record the two day ceremony, and kept a record of the elaborate sandpaintings that are integral to the ritual. Based on his service as an Army scout from 1891-1911, King was the first Navaho to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery. The Bollingen Series, published under the auspices of the Bollingen Foundation with the support of Paul Mellon and his first wife, Mary, has to be reckoned one of the most ambitious and significant publishing enterprises of the 20th century. And it was highly appropriate that it was inaugurated by this beautiful production incorporating commentary by Joseph Campbell, who was long associated with the Series as author and editor.
