        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.

        Flash Spencer - No. 2

      1943 - 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.

        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.

      Mystery House, 1943., New York - First edition. Former owner's bookplate to front pastedown sheet else fine in dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends and extremities, and a faint small crease to top edge of the rear panel. The milieux of Robert Avery's Murder on the Downbeat are the swing clubs in midtown Manhattan and the after-hours joints in Harlem. Recording company scout and jazz columnist Malachy Bliss assumes the role of amateur detective when first one and then another jazz musician is murdered and his girlfriend is jailed as a suspect. Although this book moves breezily along after the fashion of Dashiell Hammett's Thin Man series, it nevertheless carries a modest but meaningful racial subtext in its portrayal of Harlem as a place where musicians, both black and white, can go after work "to play honest, uninhibited jazz with the best musicians in the world" (Rife, David. Jazz Fiction: A History and Comprehensive Reader's Guide, p.43). A scarce title from this Arcadia House imprint. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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]

        The Gang's All Here [The Girls He Left Behind] (Original screenplay for the 1943 film)

      Twentieth Century-Fox, Los Angeles 1943 - Revised Final Script for the 1943 film musical, here under its working title, "The Girls He Left Behind." Directed by Busby Berekeley, written for the screen by Walter Bullock, Tom Bridges, George Root, Jr., and Nancy Wintner (with only Bullock credited here), and starring Alice Faye, Carmen Miranda, and featuring Benny Goodman and his orchestra. Considered by many to be Berkeley's masterpiece (though there are several high spots to choose from), "The Gang's All Here" is indisputably the master film choreographer's wildest and most ambitious effort, with staging and camerawork that are still somewhat unexplainable today, and shot in blazing Technicolor to boot. The film also boasts Carmen Miranda's finest hour, the sparkling "Girl in the Tutti-Frutti Hat." Red titled wrappers, stamped REVISED FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 870 and copy No. 53, dated April 19, 1943, and with the holograph file notation "Env. 1474" at the top right corner, and the correct final title, "The Gang's All Here" in the same hand just above the printed working title. Distribution page present, with receipt intact. Title page present, with a credit for screenwriter Bullock. 115 leaves, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 4/26/43 and 6/2/43, Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads. Hirschhorn, p. 232. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

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

      , [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.
