        WWII MANUSCRIPT NEWSPAPER: KURENT

      Ljubljana, Komenskega ulica 5: March 7 , July 29 1944, August 29 1944, April 8 1945. 1943 - Large 8°. 4 Vol. (complete), each 4 pp. typed and hand-written text, with partly coloured drawings in ink and pencil within text (Very Good, light horizontal fold). ( An unusual hand-made series of four entertaining Slovenian family magazines, made during WWII, with a light anti-Partisan and anti-Allied note. This set of four magazines was made by an unknown author, signed on one of the magazines as "?išrov Jurij«, in a center of Ljubljana, in order to entertain his family and neighbours. The first number starts enthusiastically on March 7 1943 as an entertaining magazine, with a letter from the editor (here pretending of being Piro P. from Mumbai), it continues with a poem and finishes with short detective stories, jokes and riddles. The first three winners, who solve these riddles would receive writing paper as the price. Some parts have been corrected and some censored. The magazine was supposed to be published every two weeks. The next number does not appear until a year and a half later (the time gap is also mentioned in the introduction). The issue includes, beside short stories and riddles, also a short article against the Partisans and the Communist Party. The last two numbers, dated August 29 1944 and April 8 1945 (latter exactly a month before the liberation) are not finished. The last number mocks the limited hand-made production as "a press, where a highly respectable magazine Kurent is printed a mass of people is waiting to get it for 5-6 hours before it is published the number of copies has been raised from 50000 to 12-15 million the press and editors reach the number of 4756 750 copies are bought by the royal and state research libraries from all over the world". There short hand-made newspapers, offer a short view into a family life during the occupation of the city of Ljubljana during WWII. The author is not named. In the last number he quotes his address as Komensky Street 5 (or Petrarca Street 5 – as it was renamed during the Fascist occupation) – a respectable address in the city center, today behind the building of National Radio and Television. The text shows light right-wing political tendencies, such as a dislike for the resistance (the Communist Party or the Partisans) and dedication to Catholic faith. The word Kurent means an extravagant god of unrestrained pleasure and hedonism in early Slavic customs. In Slovenian culture it became a traditional figure, announcing spring and one of the symbols representing the country. As these magazines are unique, we could not trace any other examples or references in literature. Because of their light anti Communist texts, their survival through the years of Yugoslavia has to be accidental, since the owner of these sheets would be punished with prison. The building, where these magazines were made, was demolished in the late 2010s. It is possible the magazines were hidden in the building for decades after WWII without being discovered.

One of the only yeshivas to survive as a whole body was the Mir Yeshiva, which managed to escape miraculously to Shanghai, China, and then on to America. Many of the new leaders of the American and Israeli yeshivas in the post-war period were students of the Mir, and thus followers of Rabbi Leibovitz. SUBJECTS: Litvak – Holocaust – Displaced Persons.

      1943 - regarding the status of the United States Canteens in the Bahamas, saying that as he is "no longer 'on the spot' . it is fairly clear that to have the other Canteen supplied, the Group Captain would have to arrange to make it part of the R.A.F. Station, which hardly seem practical . we are distressed over not receiving any food as the Canteen runs at such a loss when we have to purchase in Nassau and I am hoping that on the next trip of the boat, you will have been able to fill Miss Amoury's last order. Regarding the Christmas arrangements, we have decided to have an 'At Home' due to the increase in the number of troops here. We will give sandwiches, snacks, etc. and I am writing to ask you if I could have six turkeys and six hams, enough candy, nuts and raisins for 1,000 people, also one hoop of cheese ", she ends by thanking him for his help and saying that she does not think that the ladies will persist as he is "well within his rights .", 1 side 4to., Government House headed paper, 29th November Major Tolle was the Army Quarter Master responsible for supplies in the Bahamas.

        Rosie the Riveter Cartoons

      1943-44 1943 - Two finished pen and ink drawings and a pencil study of a man and a woman working side-by-side in a factory. All three signed 'Garth.' Largest is 15 by 11 inches. Drawn by Williams when he was a staff artist for the New Yorker. Plus a small pencil study. The images depict a woman apparently very happy to be doing 'men's' work and a perplex man who can't believe his eyes. In addition to being an interesting contemporary take of the Rosie the Riveter phenomenon during the Second World War, the three sketches also show a cartoonist working through an idea, looking for the best was to present the subject. In the pencil sketch, the man appears middle aged and seems to be yelling at the woman; in the second version, a similar man seems resigned to the fate of working with a woman as he mumbles something; in the final, largest drawing, the man is now elderly and appears perplexed more than anything. Williams's career at the New Yorker did not work out - he had only a couple of small items published, but the experience nevertheless changed his life: He met E. B. White at the magazine and became the illustrator of White's two iconic children's books, Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little. Fine or nearly so.

      Durchgängig mit zahlreichen Faksimiles der Handschriften Hölderlins. 4 (31 x 20,5 cm). Orig.-Leinenbände mit Titelschildern auf den Rücken und Orig.-Schutzumschlägen in Pappschubern, sowie 1 Faksimile-Edition im Folioformat (2 42 cm), verpackt in Orig.-Leinenschachtel mit montiertem grünem Titelschild auf der Vordersdeite. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. Die Frankfurter Ausgabe entstand in einem Zeitraum von 25 Jahren zunächst in Kritik zur von Friedrich Beißner 1943 herausgegebenen Ausgabe sämtlicher Werke Hölderlins. Die von Sattler herausgegebene Historisch-kritische Ausgabe in 20 Bänden wurde mit den "Gesängen" der Doppelbände 7 und 8 im Jahre 2000 fertig gestellt und bildet die maßgebliche und erste wissenschaftlichen Kriterien genügende Ausgabe von Hölderlins Schaffen. Da auch Schmidt und Knaupp eigenständige Entscheidungen bei der Textherstellung getroffen haben, konkurrieren derzeit also vier Ausgaben mit zum Teil erheblich voneinander abweichenden Texten, so dass selbst der am bloßen Wortlaut interessierte Leser gezwungen ist, auf die in der Frankfurter Ausgabe wiedergegebenen Reproduktionen der Handschriften zurückzugehen. - Dem Exemplar liegen der Einleitungsband der Frankfurter Ausgabe aus dem Jahre 1975 sowie die Hefte 1,4 und 5 der "Le pauvre Holterling" Blätter zur Frankfurter Ausgabe bei. - Dezente Besitzervermerke auf den Vorsätzen. Bände und Schuber gering angestaubt, Schutzumschläge minimal berieben. Ansonsten sehr gutes und sauberes Exemplar der vollständigen Reihe. - Mit der Faksimile-Edition "Homburger Folioheft". - Die später erschienenen Faksimiles "Stuttgarter Foliobuch" und "Frankfurter und Homburger Entwurfsfaszikel" unserer Ausgabe nicht beiliegend.

        NAZI MASSACRES OF THE JEWS & OTHERS : SOME PRACTICAL PROPOSALS FOR IMMEDIATE RESCUE MADE BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY AND LORD ROCHESTER IN SPEECHES ON MARCH 23RD 1943 IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS

      London : Victor Gollancz, 1943 - 1st Edition. Original Paper Wrappers. 8vo. [16] pages ; 19 cm. In English. In this historic speech, Temple concludes, "My chief protest is against procrastination of any kind The Jews are being slaughtered at the rate of tens of thousands a day on many days. We know that what we can do is small compared with the magnitude of the problem, but we cannot rest so long as there is any sense among us that we are not doing all that might be done. We have discussed the matter on the footing we are not responsible for this great evil but it is always true that the obligations of decent men are decided for them by contingencies which they did not themselves create We stand at the bar of history, of humanity, and of God. " Holocaust-era speeches by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Rochester made to the House of Lords outlining ongoing atrocities and calling for the British government to approach the problem of resettling Jewish refugees with more urgency. "William Temple (1881–1944) was a bishop in the Church of England. He served as Bishop of Manchester (1921–29) , Archbishop of York (1929–42) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1942–44) . A renowned teacher and preacher, Temple is perhaps best known for his 1942 book Christianity and Social Order, which set out an Anglican social theology and a vision for what would constitute a just post-war society . Against the background of persecution of Jewish people during World War II, Temple jointly founded with Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in Britain. In March 1943, Temple addressed the House of Lords, urging action to be taken on the atrocities being carried out by Nazi Germany. " (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) .

        Archive: World War II-era Pacific Maps

      1943. (WORLD WAR II) (U.S.S. YORKTOWN). Archive: World War II-era Pacific Theatre Maps. Pacific Ocean: 1943-45. Sixteen maps, many folding, various sizes. $6000.Important archive of contemporary maps, including a hand-drawn map of Okinawa during World War II, some of which were used in planning the daring U.S. raid on the main Japanese naval base in the Pacific at Truk Atoll. This superb collection of 16 maps, together with related documents, mostly date between 1943 and 1945 and were used by members of a torpedo squadron based aboard the carrier U.S.S. Yorktown.Of particular interest are a pair of large 17 by 16-inch target maps of the Truk Islands, marked ""RESTRICTED"" and prepared by the Joint Intelligence Center on February 4, 1944 and used in the planning of the daring U.S. raid on the island—code named ""Operation Hailstone."" Nicknamed ""The Gibraltar of the Pacific"" by the Allies, the Truk Islands served as the main Pacific base for the Imperial Japanese Navy. The Japanese received advance warning of the raid and managed to evacuate their heavy battleships and carriers, but the two-day American raid destroyed 12 smaller warships, as well as 32 merchant vessels, which significantly weakened the installation's ability to support Japanese naval efforts in the South Pacific. As the U.S. advanced toward Japan, the base at Truk Atoll became increasingly isolated, but did not surrender until August 1945, although the garrison was near starvation by that point. The highly detailed map, printed in black, bears updated intelligence comments in purple ink noting the locations of the main anchorage, known radar and anti-aircraft installations, airfields, seaplane bases, as well as the passes used by Japanese ships in and out of the coral reef which surrounds the island group. The second map offers a detailed analysis of the various anti-aircraft guns and fortifications guarding the island as well as comments on searchlights and electric generators that merited targeting. The collection also includes several other smaller maps covering the same general region.Another map, titled ""TARGET LOCATION MAP KWAJALEIN ATOLL,"" together with 15 pages of mimeographed areal photos and commentary (many of which are stamped ""CONFIDENTIAL"" on the verso), was used in the planning of the American attack on that island installation known as Operation Flintlock (January 29 – February 4, 1944). The accompanying aerial images offer precise locations of a variety of targets including anti-aircraft guns, radar installations, barracks, shops, warehouses, anchorages, piers, ammunition storage, fuel tanks, hangers and more. The collection also features an unusual clear plastic overlay map (14-1/2 by 14 inches) of a portion of the Marshall Islands, including the Kwajalein Atoll.The collection also features a beautifully hand inked and colored oilcloth map of the Island of Okinawa, in which the U.S.S. Yorktown played a supporting role in 1945. Signed at the lower right, ""Drawn by D-Haydon 9/10/45 China,"" the map shows the various Marine divisions that took the island during the epic Spring 1945 battle for the island. Beside a large National Geographic folding map of the Pacific (1936) which makes for excellent reference, are a set of eight 8 by 10-inch photographs depicting various theatres of the Pacific Theater of Operations. Complied by the Associated Press, each photo has a small printed explanation tipped to the verso explaining the details of each map. Light soiling, folds, and other minor wear consistent with use—overall very good condition. Scarce and desirable.

        Autograph letter signed

      1943. Signed. PORTER, Cole. Autograph letter signed. New York: June 9, 1943. Original letterhead leaf (measures 5-3/4 inches by 9-inches) in manuscript on recto only, with tinted photogravure (measures 8 by 10-inches), matted and framed (total measures 19-1/2 by 26-inches). $3100.Scarce June 9, 1943 autograph letter signed by Porter, entirely penned by him on Waldorf-Astoria letterhead the same year his busy career composing for both Broadway and Hollywood kept him moving between his large apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria and his home in California, with this letter handsomely matted and framed with a superb tinted photographic portrait of a smiling Cole Porter.In the year Porter penned this wonderful letter on Waldorf-Astoria letterhead, the legendary songwriter was writing for Broadway—composing songs for Something for the Boys (1943)—as well as Hollywood, including Something to Shout About (1943) and the unproduced Mississippi Belle. Porter, pictured smiling in the photographic portrait framed with this letter, ""brought such an individuality of style that a genre known as 'the Cole Porter song' became recognized"" (New York Times). In 1943, ""between Broadway shows and Hollywood films, Cole's career kept him sufficiently busy that he found it necessary to maintain residences on both coasts—a large apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, and a luxurious mansion in California. He lived in them alternatively during the year"" (Schwartz, Cole Porter, 4). This letter, dated by Porter above the letterhead, ""June 9th, 1943,"" reads: ""Sam—It's 4 A.M. & I'm slightly plastered but you must know that my big event of 1943 was The Great Gertzen. As for the gifts, Number One, Number Two and Number Three, they merely make me repeat the fact that Cole Loves Sam! [underlining in original]."" He also drew an arrow to the Waldorf-Astoria address and wrote along the margin, possibly referring to a recent address change, ""Isn't it curious how quickly one moves."" The recipient of Porter's letter is likely Samuel Stark Gertzen, whose extensive collection of theatre memorabilia is housed at Stanford University.Only faint foldlines to letter. A fine letter and portrait, handsomely framed.

        The Author's Original Typed Manuscript for "Journey in the Dark."

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1943 - The author's original hand-corrected typescript for his most important work, "Journey in the Dark," which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1944. Donated by Flavin to the US Treasury Department "to help the war financing campaign," with a certificate from "The Books and Authors War Bond Committee" dated May, 1945. This typescript purchased by or for Seton Hill College in Greensburg, PA, as printed on the certificate. A note in the author's hand reads as follows: "This is the original MS of "Journey in The Dark," as I wrote it at the rate of about 500 words a day between April 1941 and July 1943. I compose on a typewriter, and though I may write a page a dozen times, when I finally leave it, it is finished. Indeed, long before this book was finished, it was going into galleys. I use loose leaf paper - keeping the work in binders as it progresses. Martin Flavin | May 15th 1944." Two cover sheets typed by the publisher with the title and list of other works by Flavin precede the typescript. Dedication page typed by the author, stamped "Received Aug. 17, 1943." The complete typescript comprises 611 one-sided typed sheets (three-hole punched) with publisher and editor notations throughout. The author's holograph corrections in blue ink on approximately 125 leaves and several other leaves with pencil corrections transferred from the galleys. In addition to grammatical corrections, the author clarifies "why the flak was unalarming," removes racial references, changes a character's name to Mr. Ginsberg from Mr. Bergman, and deletes a page and a half aside about American apathy towards WWII up until the bombing of Pearl Harbor.How many Pulitzer Prize winning manuscripts from the 20th century still remain in private hands?

        Romancières d'aujourd'hui. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages 8vo published in the issue dated 25 August 1943 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary chronicle about, among other novels Elsa Triolet, Germaine Beaumont and the young Marguerite Duras. Typescript is complete seal. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" made its first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that would later develop Many in these trials, "La Part du feu" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing of the Disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrated analytical acuity far beyond current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classic and modern, first-class writers and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking that will mark the second half of the twentieth century. Transformed by writing and by war breaks Blanchot, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism in philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer of his own rhetoric, delivered more to the echo of the impossible or the lure of disappearing.

Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal a critical genealogy that has transformed the opportunity to chronicle the necessity of thought.

      - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1943), 13,5x21cm & 6 pages in-4, 4 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 4 pages et demie in-8 publiée dans le numéro du 2 Juin 1943 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire de l'oeuvre de Georges Dumézil On joint le tapuscrit complet. Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au c

        Report on Operations of 77th Indian Infantry Brigade in Burma, February to June 1943

      New Delhi: Printed by the Manager, Government of India Press,, 1943. Octavo. Original green quarter cloth, printed paper sides. Large folding coloured map in end-pocket, diagrams and plans to the text. Laid-in newspaper clipping Sir Robert Thompson and Brigadier Peter Mead's letter to The Times, 31 July 1978, regarding the treatment of Wingate in Kirby's War Against Japan. Extremities rubbed and bumped, covers marked, inner hinges superficially cracked at ends, but holding, occasional pencil-marks to margins, folding map creased at edges, the image unaffected. A very good copy of a book with a high rate of attrition. First and only edition, number 162 of 200 copies printed, of this secret and highly controversial report, withdrawn and redacted shortly after publication. Rare: Copac lists the IWM copy only, with the note "back pocket empty"; OCLC shows only a reprint of 1984 in the library of the Australian Defence Force Academy. This copy with a cyclostyled "Note by H.E. the Commander-in-Chief" (Auchinleck), tipped to the title page, and the contentious passages thoroughly blacked out (a transcription of the obliterated portions is laid in). Auchinleck's note begins: "I wish to emphasize that this report is the report of the Commander 77 India Infantry Brigade to the Commander 4 Corps. It contains opinions with which I am not necessarily in full agreement. Certain remarks which are unsuitable in a report of this nature have been deleted. While passages of questionable propriety remain, I have decided to sanction a limited distribution in order that Commanders should have without delay the benefit of the great quantity of valuable information which it contains". Wingate's report on Operation Longcloth, the first operation of the Chindits, was to become one of the founding documents of long range penetration. The first incursion into Burma had three objectives: to cut the railway line between Mandalya and Myitkyina; to harass the Japanese in the Shwebo district; and to cross the Irrawaddy and cut the railway between Mandalay and Lashio. They were successful in the first objective, and Japanese reaction to their presence indicates a degree of success in the second. However, at the railway line, two columns were ambushed and incurred heavy casualties. Wingate ordered a general dispersal and retreat back to India. They had spent twelve weeks in the jungle and marched almost a thousand miles; their losses were 833 out of 3,000 men. Wingate saw the operation as a failure, but, though it lacked material results, Longcloth recast future strategic thinking. It had been shown that the British could attack in the jungle, an alien environment for them, and take the war to the Japanese. According to Peter Mead, a former officer on Wingate's staff, "Wingate's report on the operation was written between the end of May and the middle of June 1943, in the 19th Military Hospital, Imphal ? Sheets were typed and cleared daily with Gen. Scoones, his corps commander, who subsequently approved the report as a whole. Wingate interpreted this approval ? as conferring the right to obtain a printing and to show it at his discretion ? although he arranged for the Government of India Press at New Delhi to print the report he seems to have made no approach to GHQ on the matter; typed copies of the report had previously been sent by Scoones to the commander of Eastern Army, however, and thus found their way to GHQ; the latter did not like it. By 7th July, however, the report had been printed, proofs read by Wingate at New Delhi and copies of the corrected edition sent [to several people]. GHQ promptly withdrew the report, to be issued later with offending passages censored in black, but Leo Amery's uncensored copy was the important one, for Amery sent it to Churchill" (Mead, Orde Wingate and the Historians). Churchill "suddenly saw a gleam of light in what he had characterized as a 'welter of lassitude and inefficiency' ? Wingate was flown home, met Churchill, and was added to his entourage for the voyage to the Anglo-American summit at Quebec in August 1943 (the 'quadrant' conference)" (ODNB), where he sought to persuade the Allied chiefs of the soundness of the long range penetration concept.

        André Gide et Goethe. Manuscrit autographe

      1943. - 1943, 3 feuillets in-8 (21,2 x 13,6 cm) paginés, en feuilles. - Manoscritta autografa sul Journal of Discussioni del 3 febbraio 1943 e Faux Pas. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 5 pages in-8 publié dans le numéro du 3 février 1943 du Journal des Débats, repris, légèrement modifié, dans Faux Pas (1943). Manuscrit recto-verso complet, à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreux ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique parue à l'occasion de la publication du Théâtre de Wolfgang von Goethe dans la « Pléiade » avec une introduction d'André Gide.   Maurice Blanchot avait consacré dans les pages du Journal des débats une première étude à André Gide en novembre 1942 ; à propos des Nourritures terrestres, dont il louait « la grandeur authentique », il écrivait alors, dans une forme de réhabilitation : « Cet ouvrage n'est pas seulement un essai dans un sens impersonnel, un essai sur quelque chose, à propos de quelque chose, mais un essai de l'auteur sur lui-même, où il s'essaie par l'intermédiaire de pensées et d'images, où, en se donnant dans une complète adhésion à une certaine vue du monde, il entreprend une expérience dont il est le sujet, dont il accepte aventureusement le risque et qui ne peut pas le modifier d'une certaine manière. » Cette nouvelle étude est l'occasion pour Blanchot de revenir à Gide, cet auteur « si divers quoique si fidèle » à lui-même, et à l'étonnement que lui a causé sa préface au Théâtre de Goethe parue dans la « Pléiade » : « Ce qu'André Gide voit dans Goethe, ce n'est pas le devenir infiniment riche d'une existence qui a su être quantité d'êtres et tant de choses tout en étant de plus en plus elle-même, mais ce qu'il y a de plus stable, d'un peu guindé dans l'éternel, la figure mythique glorifiée par Eckermann ; ce qu'il admire, ce n'est pas le Titan qui cherche à étreindre plus qu'il n'est, qui veut tout sans se perdre, c'est le vieillard solennel des dernières années, devenu le modèle de l'univers et préoccupé de tirer de chaque chose une leçon. » C'est aussi l'occasion d'écrire sur Goethe, étudié à l'Université de Strasbourg, et sur lequel Blanchot reviendra notamment dans un article publié en 1950 dans L'Observateur et intitulé « Le Compagnon de route ».   Intéressante lecture des liens unissant Gide à Goethe.

        Bivector Fields" [Einstein & Bargmann] WITH "Bivector Fields II" [Einstein] in Annals of Mathematics 45, No. 1, January 1944 [Papers received August 1943], pp. 1-15; pp. 15-24

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF EINSTEIN'S TWO BIVECTOR PAPERS - HIS PENULTIMATE ATTEMPT TO ARRIVE AT A UNIFIED FIELD THEORY & HIS "HIS LAST MAJOR NEW SCIENTIFIC MODEL" (Sauer, Einstein's Unified Field Theory Program, 22; Raab Collection). What Einstein (and Bargmann) propose is "in effect, an attempt at a nonlocal relativistic theory of gravitation" (Janssen, Cambridge Companion to Einstein, 299). Weil 213; Boni 248-249). In 1943, Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli proved "the non-existence of regular solutions to the vacuum field equations that would asymptotically behave like the Newtonian gravitational potential, regardless of symmetry conditions for the field in regions of finite field strength. Moreover, the proof showed that this result was valid not only in four dimensions, but also for the Kaluza-Klein five-dimensional theory. In effect, this result indicated that, under very general conditions, any attempt to base a unified theory on the Riemann tensor would necessarily involve singularities in particle-like solutions. Clearly, the latter result was at odds with core requirements of Einstein's program, and it therefore does not come as a surprise that he was willing to reconsider key assumptions of his earlier efforts" (Janssen, 299). The immediate outcome of Einstein's reconsiderations was the new approach he pursued in these two papers, the first authored with Valentin Bargmann, a mathematical physicist and one of Einstein's assistants at the Institute for Advanced Study. The starting point of their work "was to keep the four-dimensionality of the theory and also the requirement of general covariance, but to give up the postulate that a generalized theory of gravitation should necessarily be based on the existence of a Riemannian metric" (ibid). "Concerned with the geometry of curved space, [Einstein] turned to a new theory called bivectors based on mathematical equations not of the standard differential variety he had used with General Relativity, but rather a more algebraic approach in which he wrapped in more variables. He assumed the four-dimensionality of space, but the bivectors mathematical construct depended on two distinct points of the four-dimensional continuum to measure distance in space. Each point was a different mark in space not infinitesimally close to the other. Since each point is four dimensional, this requires 8 variables for two points. It becomes a more complex algebraic equation. He wrote two papers on this subject (these papers) in 1943 and 1944; this was to be his last major new scientific model. After 1945, while still believing in the unified forces of nature, his method of determining them would revert to his earlier methods of calculation with four variables" (Raab).
