        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.

        Oklahoma! A Musical Play.

      New York: Random House, 1943. First edition of this classic play. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Signed by the entire cast on the night of the London premiere, on the front endpapers and preliminary blanks. Signatures include those by each member of the premiere cast, including Mary Marlo, Harold Keel, Betty Jane Watson, Henry Clarke, Dorothea MacFarland, and Marek Windheim; as well as signatures by each singer and dancer, and the production director Jerome Whyte and the orchestra director Salvatore Dell'Isola. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Rare and desirable. Oklahoma! is the first musical written by the team of composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II. The musical is based on Lynn Riggs' 1931 play, Green Grow the Lilacs. Set in Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906, it tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancee, Ado Annie. The original Broadway production opened on March 31, 1943. It was a box-office smash and ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, later enjoying award-winning revivals, national tours, foreign productions and an Academy Award-winning 1955 film adaptation. It has long been a popular choice for school and community productions. Rodgers and Hammerstein won a special Pulitzer Prize for Oklahoma! in 1944.

        The Greatest Gift

      Privately Printed for Distribution to His Friends, [No place] 1943 - First edition. Small octavo. 21, [1]pp. Stapled orange wrappers with printed paper label. Bumps at the spine ends, light wear to the wraps with a few tiny spots and near invisible tidemark on the rear wrap, near fine. Signed by the author on the last page. Reportedly one of 200 copies. Stern wrote the first draft of this story, about a man who doesn't realize how much he has given to others until he wishes that he had never been born, in 1938. He set it aside and rewrote it with a Christmas setting in 1943. Unable to sell the story to magazines, he issued it privately as a holiday greeting to friends. The story made its way to Hollywood, where the wife of an RKO studio chief insisted that Frank Capra make a film from it. Dalton Trumbo, Marc Connelly, and Clifford Odets all attempted scripts based on the story, but all were essentially scrapped in favor of a screenplay by Capra, Albert Hackett, Frances Goodrich, and Jo Swerling. For the lead Capra chose Jimmy Stewart who, like the director, had just returned home from distinguished service in the war. The film, *It's a Wonderful Life*, was released Christmas Day, 1946 and received largely positive reviews. Surprisingly it did not do particularly well at the box office, losing money on its initial release. For the next several decades the film receded to the relative obscurity as did many quality productions of the era. In the early 1970s, however, the copyright to the film was not renewed and it quickly became a staple of holiday programming for local television stations across the country. With this refreshed accessibility it quickly gained a new and appreciative audience and in the last quarter century the film's status has grown well beyond "classic," so that it now stands as an icon of popular culture and is clearly one of the half dozen most-beloved films ever made. This volume was reprinted several times during the 1940s and later printings are often confused with the first edition. A very nice true first edition of this rare film source book.

        Den fuldkomne fisker.

      1943 1943 - The Compleat Angler or The Contemplative Man's Recreation. Oversat ved Johanne Kastor Hansen, digtene oversat af Otto Gelsted. 1. danske oversættelse. Kbhvn.: Martin 1943. Illustr. af Ib Andersen, og efterfølgende håndkoloreret af Ove Heide. XXXVIII + 432 s. Ubeskåret eksemplar uden nummer af 1000 nummererede eksemplarer med navneliste. Samlet oplag 2500 eksemplarer. * Et af de meget få eksemplarer, der, uden Ib Andersens accept, var blevet farvelagt af tegneren Ove Heide, og formodentlig det eneste eksemplar af førsteoplagets 1000 eksemplarer trykt på normalt papir og med navneliste. Ifølge oplysninger fra Martins forlags direktør Erik Halkier blev der efter trykningen af førsteoplaget trykt 10 - 12 eksemplarer på specielt papir, der var bedre egnet til at blive håndkoloreret med vandfarve. Iflg. det oplyste, blev der ikke koloreret nogen eksemplarer af 1. oplaget på normalt papir. [Heinz Gerhard: Historien om den fuldkomne Fisker]. Eksemplaret, der er uden nummer, er delvist forberedt til indbinding, da ryggen er løsnet fra bogblokken og hæftningen delvist fjernet. Helt rent eksemplar. Ib Andersens uforlignelige illustrationer visende engelske landskaber og fiskeredskaber m.v., ligesom det også var ham, der stod for bogens smukke omslag og for hele tilrettelægningen af den, noget der på mange måder var nyskabende. 'Det er næppe for meget at sige at denne bog er et fuldkomment bogarbejde i forfinet engelsk stil' [Esben Hiort].

      New York, JWB. N.D.. Paperback. 1st edition. Original illustrated paper wrappers, 4to (magazine size) 24 unnumbered pages. Printed on glossy paper and loaded with black and white photos of Jewish servicemen at different social events. 28 cm. WWII-era photo-publication promoting the social events and services provided by the JWB for Jewish servicemen. Photos of Jewish GIs at USOs, getting info, at libraries, signing in choruses, playing cards, playing ping pong, playing pool, eating meals, working on puzzles, with celebrities, taking dancing lessons, listening to “professional entertainers” square dancing, conga dancing, getting their portraits painted, participating in religious services, receiving books and magazines, receiving victory kits, watching movies, playing guitar, etc. Audience for this publication was certainly Jewish GI's, as nearly every photo shows both GIs and attractive young women! Includes printed letter introducing the publication, from chairman Ralph E. Saumel, laid in, dated March 25, 1943, which had been stapled to front cover (staple still in corner of cover)—this letter is apparently lacking from the single copy on OCLC, as they have a wild guess at the date of 1939-1945. SUBJECT(S): Jews -- New York (State) -- New York -- Societies, etc. Jewish soldiers. World War, 1939-1945 -- Participation, Jewish. OCLC/Worldcat lists only 1 copy worldwide (Balch), which, apparently, lacks the laid in letter. Light wear, a beautiful copy of a gorgeous illustrated period piece. (kh-3-2) .

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.

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.

        Lettre autographe signée (1943)

      - Lettre autographe signée, Lyon, 7 septembre (1943), à Clément Bouvetier (son ancien professeur de français), 3 pages in-8, en-tête personnelle avec adresse. Enveloppe autographe jointe. Belle lettre du jeune Frédéric Dard alors âgé de 22 ans. « Je joue à l’homme expérimenté et je ne suis qu’un gosse - fort heureusement ». « Cher Monsieur Bouvetier, Si j’ai un peu tardé à vous répondre c’est que les voyages ont engloutis la plus grande partie de ma vie ce dernier mois. Je me démène beaucoup au sujet de mon affaire, laquelle je suis heureux de vous l’apprendre, réussit pleinement. Mon bouquin a obtenu l’autorisation tant désirée. Il est composé et la semaine prochaine très certainement notre imprimeur l’installera sur ses presses. Je tire à huit milles exemplaires. Ils sont déjà tous vendus. Rien de surprenant à ce que vous n’ayez pu dénicher mes précédents ouvrages, voilà en effet plus d’un an qu’ils sont parus, achetés, vendus, effeuillés, bref qu’ils ont disparus des vitrines. Les nouveautés maintenant sont éphémères comme les neiges du printemps. J’ai eu une grande joie en me voyant en nouvelle dans Candide. C’est un journal très hermétique et je connais beaucoup de « noms connus » qui s’y sont brisés la plume. Cependant ce conte est pompier et je trouve votre critique pertinente. Quant à ce qui concerne votre « Clarissage » laissez moi protester. J’ouvre une parenthèse pour vous affirmer qu’à mon avis les hommes intelligents et actifs n’y tombent pas. Et puis - passez moi le conseil - mais il est facile d’y échapper, le mariage se porte beaucoup ces temps-ci et n’avez-vous pas l’exemple de vos confrères et de vos élèves ? Se marier est une expérience amusante à faire je vous assure et qui ne correspond à aucune autres curiosités de l’amour. Evidemment !!! mais on s’habitue à tout y compris à la même femme, c’est une question d’endurance, une fois que le rythme est pris cela fonctionne à peu près. Et lorsqu’on fait la balance je crois que le solde doit être créditeur. Mais je joue à l’homme expérimenté et je ne suis qu’un gosse - fort heureusement. Je pars à Paris mardi prochain. J’espère ramener le manuscrit « Chandet la vraie dame aux camélias » et vous l’enverrai. Vous recevrez également mon livre dès qu’il sera paru. Je pense pouvoir tirer quelques exemplaires de luxe. Je vous en enverrai également un pour Gourney. J’ai conservé un bon souvenir de ce grand bonhomme intelligent, original et blasé - bien qu’il m’est particulièrement mal mené lors de mon passage entre ses mains. J’aimerais vous lire avant mon départ. Votre dévoué Frédéric Dard ». Dans cette lettre, Frédéric Dard fait référence à sa nouvelle, « Clarisse Valère », qui était parue dans Candide en août 1943. Le livre dont il prépare la sortie est son roman Le Norvégien manchot. Enfin, Le Vrai roman de la dame aux camélias d’Henriette Chandet fut édité en décembre 1943 aux Éditions de Savoie (maison d’édition qui appartenait à Frédéric Dard).
