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).

        Roitarmeish [= The Red Army Man]

      ICUF Yidisher kultur-farband, 189 Second Avenue, New York, 3, New York 1943 - Title page illustration by Marc Chagall. hinges exposed. Front blank endpaper detached. Damage to boards. Itzik Feffer (September 10, 1900 ¿ August 12, 1952), also Fefer (Yiddish ¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿, Russian ¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿, ¿¿¿à¿ ¿¿¿¿¿ò¿¿¿¿¿ ¿è¿¿¿) was a Soviet Yiddish poet executed on the Night of the Murdered Poets during Joseph Stalin's purges. Itzik Feffer was born in Shpola, a town in Zvenigorod uyezd (district) of Kiev guberniya, Imperial Russia. During the Second World War, he was a military reporter with the rank of colonel and was vice chairman of the Soviet Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee (JAC). He and Solomon Mikhoels traveled to the United States in 1943 in a well-documented fund-raising trip. In 1948, after the assassination of the JAC Chairman Solomon Mikhoels, Feffer, along with other JAC members, was arrested and accused of treason. Feffer had been an informer for the NKVD (predecessor of the KGB) since 1943. Feffer reportedly cooperated with the investigation, providing false information that would lead to the arrest and indictment of over a hundred people, but at the trial, he made openly nationalistic statements and expressed pride in his Jewish identity. Feffer had also allegedly been one of the "most loyal and conformist Yiddish poets", who had helped to enforce strict ideological control over other Yiddish writers, and had a history of denouncing colleagues for their "nationalistic hysteria". However, in 1952, Feffer, along with other defendants, was tried at a closed JAC trial, and executed on August 12, 1952, at Lubyanka prison. Feffer was rehabilitated posthumously in 1955, after Stalin's death. The American concert singer and actor Paul Robeson met Feffer on July 8, 1943, in New York during a Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee event chaired by Albert Einstein, one of the largest pro-Soviet rallies ever held in the United States. After the rally, Paul Robeson and his wife Eslanda Robeson, befriended Feffer and Mikhoels. Six years later, in June 1949, during the 150th anniversary celebration of the birth of Alexander Pushkin, Robeson visited the Soviet Union to sing in concert. According to David Horowitz, In America, the question "What happened to Itzhak Feffer?" entered the currency of political debate. There was talk in intellectual circles that Jews were being killed in a new Soviet purge and that Feffer was one of them. It was to quell such rumors that Robeson asked to see his old friend, but he was told by Soviet officials that he would have to wait. Eventually, he was informed that the poet was vacationing in the Crimea and would see him as soon as he returned. The reality was that Feffer had already been in prison for three years, and his Soviet captors did not want to bring him to Robeson immediately because he had become emaciated from lack of food. While Robeson waited in Moscow, Stalin's police brought Feffer out of prison, put him the care of doctors, and began fattening him up for the interview. When he looked sufficiently healthy, he was brought to Moscow. The two men met in a room that was under secret surveillance. Feffer knew he could not speak freely. When Robeson asked how he was, he drew his finger nervously across his throat and motioned with his eyes and lips to his American comrade. They're goin to kill us, he said. When you return to America you must speak out and save us. During his concert in Tchaikovsky Hall on June 14 - which was broadcast across the entire country - Robeson publicly paid tribute to Feffer and the late Mikhoels, singing the Vilna Partisan song "Zog Nit Keynmol" in both Russian and Yiddish. Recordings of the concert survived, but Robeson's spoken words are lost. Feffer was a prolific poet who wrote almost exclusively in Yiddish, and his poems were widely translated into Russian and Ukrainian. He is considered one of the greatest Soviet poets in the Yiddish language and his poems were widely admired inside and outside Russia. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

Es setzt sich aus Abfolgen von Zeichnungen zusammen, deren erste für jede Folge eine Studie in Kohle ist, die eine Folge von Zeichnungen in Feder oder Bleistift nach sich zieht, wie Parfüm, das aus der ersten Zeichnung emporsteigt.“ Im französischen Originaltext: ” Depuis un an j´ai fait un très important effort, un de plus importants de ma vie. J´ai mis au point mon dessin et j´ai fait un progrès surprenant comme aisance, sensibilité librement exprimée avec une grande variété de sensations et un minimum de moyens. C´est une des choses por lesquelles j´ai voulu continuer la vie. J´ai fait une abondante quantité de dessins tout a fait suprenante.Ils se composent de suites dont le dessin initial pour chaque suite et un dessin d´étude au faisain qui donne une suite de dessins à la plume ou au crayon qui sont comme les parfums qui sortiraient de ce premier dessin matrice.“ Seinen begleitenden ausführlichen Begleittext verfaßte Aragon in Villeneuve, wohin er sich während der deutschen Besatzung zurückgezogen hatte. Mit Rücksicht auf das Erscheinungsjahr 1943 legte der Verleger dem Autor nahe, seinen Text anonym zu veröffentlichen. Aragon lehnte ab: ” Die Arbeit ist mir wichtig, ebenso wie mein Stolz als Schriftsteller.“ [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        EL REFERI CUENTA NUEVE: NOVELA

      [Ciudad de] Mexico: Editorial Cultura, 1943.. Octavo, pp. [1-10] 11-425 [426: blank] [427: colophon] [428: blank] [note: first leaf is a blank], original cream wrappers printed in black and green, all edges untrimmed. First edition. Canedo worked more successfully in the science fiction genre than most other Mexican writers, according to Juan Carlos Ramírez-Pimienta on his website. He was a prolific and popular author, continuing to turn out novels up into the 1970s, but is now forgotten by most Latin American critics and historians, not to mention scholars elsewhere. He wrote three SF novels: EL REFERI CUENTA NUEVE, PALAMAS ECHEVETE Y YO EL LAGO ASFALTADO, and LA NOCHE ANUNCIA EL DIA, published, respectively, in 1943, 1945 and 1947. LA NOCHE deals with a mind-reading machine. PALAMAS concerns time travel. EL REFERI (the present work) uses the motif of the parallel universe to address political issues. It is a long work, blending two tales, told from different times and different worlds, featuring a 1961 invasion of the United States by the Nazis, who have formed an alliance with Mexico. Canedo wrote the work as a cautionary tale to urge his fellow Mexicans to join with Americans to fight Germany. "The United States has very few champions among the writers of Latin America; this is especially true in the case of Mexico. A notable exception is Diego Cañedo ... who, although perhaps better known for his light entertaining fantasies, has written ambitious works of social importance. During the Second World War, Cañedo was dismayed by the general acceptance in Mexico of Nazi propaganda. In order to influence public opinion against Hitler and in support of the United States, he wrote an impressive futuristic novel which he entitled EL REFERI CUENTA NUEV (1943)." - Ross Larson, Fantasy and Imagination in the Mexican Narrative. Some foxing and soiling to covers, internally fine. (#111168)

Many women who joined were assigned service jobs such as cooks, drivers, or laundry workers, but many also became photographers, gunnery instructors, cryptographers, etc. The poster features the principal recruitment slogan for the Corps, "Be a Marine...Free a Marine to Fight," and depicts a uniformed woman in the foreground, and marine infantry in the midst of an attack behind her.

        The Golden Carpet; The Silver Crescent. Published by Permission of the War Office.

      London: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1943 - 2 volumes, quarto. Full green and full blue morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, titles gilt to spines, gilt edge-roll, single fillet gilt to the turn-ins, top edges gilt, the others uncut. Each in the white linen slipcase as issued. Spine sunned as usual, narrow strip of tan-burn from the turn-ins to the free endpapers, slightly later gift inscriptions to both, but overall very good. Photogravure portrait frontispiece to each and numerous similar illustrations to the text of the second, the majority full-page, maps to the endpapers. First editions, each in a signed edition limited of 300 copies of which just 30 were in the full binding as here, copies 16 and 25 respectively. De Chair was Intelligence Officer with "Kingcol", a Flying Column of less than 1,500 men under the Command of Brig.-Gen. Kingstone. This tiny force was sent from Palestine to Baghdad to deal with the effects of the "Golden Square" coup amongst pro-Nazi Iraqi military officers. Despite the air support extended to the Iraqis by the German and Italian air forces, the operation was a complete success, Baghdad falling on 30 May 1941; the books cover this and subsequent operations in Syria. The books were reviewed in the Spectator on the issue of the composite trade edition in 1944 as "a fascinating and well-told story in the tradition of T. E. Lawrence, and one worthy to take its place in the history of British soldiers' heroic campaigns in the Near East". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
