        TUCKER'S PEOPLE - INSCRIBED

      New York: L.B. Fischer, 1943. First Edition. First Printing. A Very Good copy of the author's first novel, lacking the dustjacket. Spine panel slightly faded, moderate edgewear to the spine ends and corner tips, with the top foredge lightly soiled. Wolfert has inscribed this copy "For Sidney Cohen with best wishes, Ira Wolfert." Like Wolfert, Cohen was a native New Yorker, and a noted psychiatrist who reported the effects of LSD during the 1960's. Wolfert didn't sign much, which makes the association here all the more interesting. 'Tucker's People' is a novel Walter Rideout credits as "one of the most distinguished American novels of the whole forties," and basis for the sinister 1948 film noir directed by Abraham Polonsky. A key film noir source title, and one that is seldom encountered signed.

        Ministère de la reconstruction et de l'urbanisme : Charte de l'urbanisme

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale 1943 - In-8° broché, 24 pages. Mythique chartre qui préfigure la célèbre chartre d'Athènes et que Le Corbusier ne laissera jamais évoquée par crainte d'un rappel de son travail auprès du gouvernement de Vichy. Selon l'Encyclopédie Larousse : « Personnalité provocante : cet homme que les militants d'extrême droite qualifiaient si aisément de bolchevik était membre d'une organisation fasciste. » De même source : « En 1941 Destin de Paris reprenant le « Plan Voisin » est un appel ouvert à l'autorité de Vichy. » En 1926, Le Corbusier se rapproche de membres du Faisceau de Georges Valois, un des premiers partis fascistes organisé en France23 et dissout en 1928, associant antiparlementarisme et syndicalisme révolutionnaire, où certains participants prônent la mise en place d'une politique nationale d'aménagement du territoire et de planification urbaine. En janvier 1931, il devient ainsi membre du comité de rédaction de la revue Plans fondée en 1930 par Philippe Lamour, considéré comme le père de l'aménagement du territoire en France, un ancien membre de ce parti, tout comme Hubert Lagardelle, François de Pierrefeu et Pierre Winter membres du comité de rédaction. En 1933, il participe à la revue Prélude dirigée par son ami Winter, ancien membre du Faisceau également. Néanmoins, dans un article publié la même année dans cette revue, Le Corbusier attaque à la fois « l'architecture mussolinienne moderne » et le régime lui-même : « Rome imitant Rome, une folle redondance. » François de Pierrefeu contribue pour sa part à la revue Plans et à la revue Prélude. Bien que d'origine suisse, Le Corbusier a tenté en vain de vendre ses idées au régime de Vichy, à l'occasion de la modernisation mise en oeuvre de la règlementation de l'urbanisme et des futures reconstructions, pendant les 17 mois et demi de son séjour dans cette ville, de janvier 1941 à juillet 1942, malgré la nomination d'Hubert Lagardelle comme ministre du Travail dans le gouvernement Pierre Laval (avril 1942-novembre 1943). Pour ce faire, François de Pierrefeu est aux côtés de Le Corbusier, période durant laquelle ils signent ensemble le livre La Maison des hommes. En juin 1942, son plan d'urbanisme pour Alger est rejeté. Après le départ de Le Corbusier de Vichy, le 1er juillet 1942, il devient de mi-1942 au 20 avril 1944 conseiller technique à La Fondation française pour l'étude des problèmes humains dirigée par l'eugéniste et prix Nobel de médecine de 1912, le professeur Alexis Carrel. François de Pierrefeu continue de défendre les intérêts de l'architecte auprès des autorités gouvernementales. Par la suite, en 1944, Pierre Winter sera quant à lui nommé inspecteur général du Travail du gouvernement de Vichy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Typed letter signed

      Faber and Faber, London, 13 October 1943 - One page, approximately 350 words, to the art scholar Hartley Ramsden explaining at some length a delay in the publication of his essay, apparently in an anthology: "I have your letter of the 5th October and am much distressed to learn the facts which you set before me." "The delay is entirely due to circumstances arising out of the war. The available printers have limited resources and we have to have those books printed first which are needed first, and after printing there are often similar delays owing to the difficulties of the binders." The book which took precedence was `Education through Art' by Herbert Read, with whom Ramsden had been at handbags drawn the previous year in the pages of Cyril Connolly's `Horizon' magazine. Folded twice for mailing else in nice condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Oblong 8°, 110pp. mimeographed text with illustrations within text, [1] folding map, [3] pp. mimeographed maps, with originaly card binding, with mounted title page, red linen spine (Very Good, binding slightly stained and scuffed, old ink marks and annotations on the inner side of the wrappers. Pages 1-2 mounted on cover, therefore complete collation). - Baghdad: Wydawnictwo Referatu K.O. Dywizji Strzelców Karpackich [Publishing House of Carpathian Rifle Division] 1943. The book, accompanied with mimeographed illustrations, gives information on the history of Iraq as well as the contemporary description. The images at the back include a folding map of Mesopotamia, and Assyria and Babylonia, a map of modern Baghdad, Ur and ruins of Babylon, with a key. The book was published by the Carpathian Rifle Division, which was a part oft he Polish II Corps (Drugi Korpus Wojska Polskiego), stationed in Iraq in 1943 during WWII. The II Corps was formed in the same year, from the Polish soldiers, imprisoned in Gulags by the Soviets from 1939. The soldiers were released in 1941, after the Polish-Russian Military Agreement on 14 August, which allowed for the creation of a Polish Army on Soviet soil. In 1943 the Polish II Corps was formed from various units fighting alongside the Allies in all theatres of war, one of them being located in British-held Iraq. The corps consisted not only of Polish soldiers, but also of Jews, Belorussian and Ukrainians. The Polish Carpathian Rifle Division played a major role in the North African and the Italian Campaigns (1941–1945) as part of the British Eighth Army. After the war the devision was was housed at various locations in England, where they maintained a presence until 1962. The back cover is decorated by a symbol of the Carpathian Rifle Division – a pine tree, which also gave the division name Christmas Tree Division. The book is very rare. We could only trace five examples in institutions worldwide (4 in Polish libraries and one in the British Library).

        A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

      New York: Harper & Brothers, [1943]. 8vo. Original green cloth, printed paper title label on spine; original pictorial dust jacket. A fine association copy, inscribed by Smith to her niece on the front free endpaper: "For my favorite niece Marylynn Hall Best love (Aunt) Betty Smith October, 1943." Signed copies of Smith's classic tale of life in Williamsburg, Brooklyn are scarce, and inscribed copies scarcer still. The present copy, inscribed to a close family member just two months after publication, was preserved and passed down through Smith's niece's family. In 1945 Elia Kazan made his directorial debut in the film adaptation of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Following the trials of a tenement family living in Brooklyn during the turn of the century, Smith's novel would also serve as the basis for a Broadway musical. According to auction records, no inscribed copies of the first edition have been offered since publication. Light spotting to cloth; jacket with chips and losses at edges affecting several letters of publisher's name on front cover and spine, $2.75 price preserved, generally an above-average copy of this work known for the fragility of its poor war-time paper.

        The Atlantic Charter.

      Washington, DC: Office of War Information, , 1943. 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. 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".

        The Little Prince (Signed Ltd )

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. First edition. Near Fine/Good +. One of 525 copies of the signed first edition, this copy number 329, as numbered on the colophon and the jacket spine. Book Near Fine with clean, bright cloth and internal contents in excellent condition. Old newspaper clipping ghost to the front end papers and closed page block with very slight insect damage. The dust jacket is original to the book as per the matching spine number, but has been price-clipped and has seen better days. Several cracks and tears professionally closed on the verso with archival tissue, tape ghosts along the edges, some insect damage. Priced accordingly. "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 Good + dust jacket.
