        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.

        Dessins. Thèmes et Variations. Précédés de "Matisse-en-France" par Aragon

      M. Fabiani / Paris 1943 - Signierter Linolschnitt von H. Matisse als Front., Tit., 2 Bll., 39 S. Mit 3 Orig.-Lithographien im Text und 158 Tafeln. Lose Bogen in Chemise, Ohlwd. -Mappe. Eines von 20 Exemplaren der Luxusausgabe II, auf Vélin d´Arches, num. 11 bis 30 (gesamt 950) mit dem signierten Linolschnitt, 21,3:14,5 cm. Verzeichnet und ausführlich beschrieben in Duthuit/Garnaud, Matisse, ouvrages illustrés , Nr. 9, mit ausführlichem eigenen Text von Matisse zur Enstehung des Werkes, das insges. 17 Zeichnungen in 3 bis 19 Variationen reproduziert. Zitat aus dem Text von Matisse zu dem vorstehenden Werk: ” Seit einem Jahr steigere ich meine Anstrengungen (im Zeichnen), vielleicht die Wichtigsten in meinem Leben. Ich habe meine Art zu Zeichnen vervollkommnet und erstaunlichen Fortschritt gemacht,um Leichtigkeit und Sensibilität auszudrücken, in einer großen Vielfalt und einem Minimum an Mitteln. Das ist wie ein großes Erblühen. 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.

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]

(Bd. 2 u. 3). - Musil, (1880 - 1942), begann 1897 ein Studium an der technischen Militärakademie in Wien und schloß es 1901 in Brünn ab. Nach dem Examen als Maschinenbauingenieur und dem Militärdienst arbeitete er 1902/03 als Volontär an der TH Stuttgart. Nachdem er die Reifeprüfung nachgeholt hatte, wurde M. 1903 zum Studium der Philosophie an der Univ. Berlin immatrikuliert, wo er 1908 mit einer erkenntnistheoretischen Arbeit über Ernst Mach promoviert wurde. Während des Studiums verfaßte Musil den kurzen Roman „Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törleß„ (1906), der einen jungen Mann auf der Suche nach selbständigen Erkenntnismöglichkeiten in der beengenden Umgebung eines Internats beschreibt. Dieser moderne 'Bildungsroman' ist der einzige wirkliche Publikumserfolg Musils geworden. Bereits hier zeigt sich, daß die technisch-mathematische Ausbildung und die Philosophie sein Werk viel stärker prägen als die eigentlich literarischen Anregungen aus der Lektüre von Novalis, Dostojewski und Maeterlinck. Bis 1910 freier Schriftsteller in Berlin, heiratete M. 1911 nach dem Übertritt zur evang. Konfession die Malerin Martha Marcovaldi-Heimann in Wien, wo er bis 1914 Bibliothekar an der TH war. Er entwickelte eine rege journalistische und publizistische Tätigkeit und war im Ersten Weltkrieg zum Teil an der Front, zum Teil bei der Militärpresse eingesetzt. Nach dem Krieg intensivierte er seine kunst- und theaterkritische Arbeit und veröffentlichte „Die Schwärmer" (1921) sowie „Vinzenz und die Freundin bedeutender Männer" (1924), dramatische Varianten des Themas der Ich-Spaltung. Die Antinomie Männlichkeit/Intellekt versus Weiblichkeit/Empfindung bildet den theoretischen Hintergrund des Novellenzyklus „Drei Frauen" (1924). In zahlreichen Essays, in Tagebüchern und Briefen entwickelte er seine philosophische Auffassung der Wirklichkeit. Der "gestaltlose" Mensch wird erst in den Wechselbeziehungen zu seiner Umwelt zur individuellen Gestalt, in der das "Ratioide" (die Sphäre der Logik) und das "Nicht-Ratioide" (die emotionale Sphäre) eine sich ständig dialektisch verwandelnde Einheit bilden. Aufgabe des Dichters ist es, den Austausch zwischen diesen Bereichen zu fördern. Das Bedürfnis, alles einem -- an sich unendlich möglichen -- Prozeß der Sinn-Entwertung zu unterwerfen, ist das Vorhaben Ulrichs, der Hauptfigur in dem umfangreichen und trotzdem Fragment gebliebenen Roman „Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften", an dem Musil von 1925 bis zu seinem Tod arbeitete. Im Stil ironisch-sarkastisch, unaufhörlich zwischen Denksystematik und Erzähllust pendelnd, spiegelt der Roman eine generelle Erkenntnis-Krise: Welt, Geschichte, Ich und auch das Erzählen selbst bleiben einer sinnlosen Zersplitterung ausgesetzt. Der "Möglichkeitssinn" ersetzt den "Wirklichkeitssinn"; das so erweiterte Denk- und Erlebnispotential erlaubt die Erfahrung des "anderen Zustandes" (durch Inzest, Mystik, Wahnsinn, dionysische Entfesselung), in dem die Gegensätze wenigstens momentan aufgehoben werden. "Kakanien", die k.k. Monarchie, bildet die Kulisse des diskontinuierlichen Romans und gilt als Paradigma der modernen Welt, in der sich nie etwas grundsätzlich Neues ereignet. So ist auch die "Parallelaktion" der Regierungsjubiläen Franz Josephs und Wilhelms II. zu verstehen, die in eine doppelte Beerdigung zweier Monarchien mündet. Trotz zunehmender Depressionen und ständiger Geldsorgen Musils erschien der erste Band 1930 bei Rowohlt; 1933 veröffentlichte er, seit 1931 wieder in Berlin, weitere 38 Kapitel als zweiten Band dieses "radikal endlosen" (Hermann Broch) Romans. Nach Hitlers Machtergreifung kehrte er nach Wien zurück, wo er seine früheren Essays und Prosastücke als „Nachlaß zu Lebzeiten" (1936) veröffentlichte. Nach dem Verbot seiner Bücher durch die Nationalsozialisten emigrierte er sc [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(2), 16, (1), 520; 31 full page color plates (each with a descriptive leaf of text), 149 text-figures, 1 double-page fine halftone plate of 17 stages of embryological development of a tailed amphibian, three full page maps (partly colored).

The volume was limited to 1000 numbered copies, this is copy no. 344. This massive monograph covers the salamanders of Imperial Japan including Formosa (Taiwan) and Korea. According to Adler (vol. 1, p. 122-123), "this is a masterful treatise, with beautiful color plates, and includes systematics, life histories, embryology, and chromosome morphology." The author, Ikio Sato, was Japan's leading expert on salamanders and was Professor of Biology at Hiroshima University. "On August 6, 1945, while waiting for a streetcar to his laboratory, he suffered extensive radiation exposure during the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and died six days later in Hiroshima City at the age of 42" (Adler, p. 122). Sato had been working on an English translation of his 'Tailed Amphibians of Japan' at the time of his death; unfortunately, that manuscript was burned when his home was destroyed in the bombing (Adler). Additionally, any copies of the monograph that Sato or his Hiroshima colleague had were also destroyed in the bombing making the work all the more scarce. The text is in Japanese with Latin names of species used through the volume. The color plates are very well done. No ownership marks and few signs of use. Light rubbing to the silver lettering on the spine, the title page is lightly tanned, the text is bright and clean as are the fine color plates, there is light edge wear to the slipcase; a tight copy in near fine condition.

        Mini Archive Comprising Two Photograph Albums with Excellent Views of Northern India, Two War Campaign Medals, and Ephemeral Documents.

      India: 1943-1946 Mini Archive comprising: two photographs albums of northern Indian, two war campaign and ephemeral documents including an army pass, of an English officer Stanley E. Dean of Warminster, Wiltshire, who was a surgeon with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section based in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, and serving in India during the Second World War. The albums together contain 321 gelatin silver print photographs, mostly snapshot views, with detailed manuscript captions, mounted onto cardstock leaves separated with tissue guards. An additional 7 photographs are loosely placed within. Two oblong 8vo. string-tied albums measuring approximately 26 x 19 cm, cloth boards, one brown, the other taupe. Front pastedown to second album is annotated and dated in manuscript. Fourteen (14) newspaper clippings are placed within the volumes alongside related photographs. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 5,5 x 5,5 cm, the largest 10 x 12 cm, and 2 panoramic views measuring 15,5 x 6 cm. Two campaign medals and one accompanying ribbon bar were awarded to the officer for his service in India, here contained in the original O.H.M.S. box of issue with the entitlement notice leaf, in excellent condition as issued and never worn. Slight wear to album boards and medals box, otherwise the lot in Very Good Condition. Nostalgic and striking views of Kashmir and Jammu, the Himalayan foothill regions, high altitude hill station towns, and New Delhi, are abundant in the two albums of photographs compiled surgeon Stanley Dean of the Royal Corps of Signals Telegraph Operating Section. Dean departed for India from Liverpool on 14 August 1943 with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section. During the Second World War, the Supplementary Air Formation Signals were augmented to at least nineteen units. Several were formed in Kirkburton in Yorkshire in 1943, some of which were for service India, their main purpose being to supply signal personnel for advanced air fields. The 19th regiment, for example, supported Gemeral Slim's 14th Army as it liberated Burma from the Japanese. On a grander scale, the Signals Units were tasked with improving signals, communications, and radar, which also involved improving the Indian Army post and telegraph departments, and constructing long-distance overhead carrier systems. Travelling and mountain trekking extensively throughout northern India, photographs capture the vastness of the mountainous region of Kashmir. Highlights include panoramic views of Nainital and of the Himalayan Range with the Nada Devi summit at its center, multiple views of Dal Lake near Srinagar some of which show the long houseboats for which it is famed, rare photographs of the Northwest Frontier customs post at Domel, nostalgic photographs of Shimla and Srinagar, and ancient ruins such as the Kashmiri Pandit Martand Sun Temple. His voyage home, departing from Bombay on 14 August 1946 precisely three years to the day after his departure from England, is captured in 20 photographs. The passage took him to Aden and through the Suez Canal, with a stop at Port Said. The first album begins in what is now Pakistan, with the scenes at the remote town of Jhika Gali and the Topa Hills. Superb professional photographs capture life in the historic town of Murree which was founded in 1851 as a sanatorium for British troops. At least one photograph shows the officer at Islamabad, now the capital city of Pakistan, with rickshaws behind him. Twelve images show army camp life on Kuldana Mountain, Murree, Pakistan. A cantonment named "Kuldana" was established in the 1860s by the British Army, in the verdant hills of Murree. [Several renowned British regiments have camped at Kuldana, some of which include the Northumberland Fusiliers, Devonshires, Duke of Wellington's, Leicestershires, Bedfordshires Regiment, 3rd Battalion The Rifle Brigade, 1st Battalion Gordon's Highlanders, West Yorkshires, East Surreys and 57th Wilde's Rifles.] Two (2) panoramic photographs and nineteen (19) other snapshot views capture the magnificent natural history of the lake and mountains of Naini Tal [Nainital], including Chena Peak [Cheena, china Peak], where the officer and some colleagues enjoyed their leave. A significant mountain climb affords a clear view of the Himalayan Range. The album continues at Simla [Shimla] in the Himalayan foothills with more high altitude treks, including a thirteen kilometer walk through forested hills to Wildflower Hall and the marker for Tibet. The famous Kohala bridge, which at the time marked the border between Kashmir State and the Northwest Frontier Province, was evidently crossed, as the officer ventured into what is Pakistan today. In the Jhelum Valley he takes notice of terraced hillsides and small river bank villages. Especially rare are the views of Domel, a little town complete with a Customs house, on the Northwest frontier border. One of the images shows a caravan of oxen-pulled tent carriages. A lovely and captivating visual memoire of Srinagar unfolds in some twenty-five photographs, featuring, as expected, its famous houseboats, but also other indigenous watercraft, and the Bund. - Kashmir - Jhelum Valley Nine photographs show officer Dean and company touring the Taj Mahal at Agra. He also visited the ruins of the Martand Sun Temple which overlooks the whole of the Kashmir Valley, and the ruins of Awantipora. The other album is centered in and around Delhi, in the year 1945. Pertaining to the war, are scenes of the airshow which took place in March of 1945 at the Willingdon Airport [now Safdarjung Airport]. Also part of the five-day 'Victory Celebration,' Dean photographs the parade participants including an Indian regiment, a Scottish bagpipe procession, the Women's Royal Naval Service (Wrens), a camel corps, a group of Naga tribesmen from Burma, among others. A tour of Old Delhi features the historic Red Fort with five snapshot views taken of its interior, the Ghantaghar clock tower in the famous Chandni Chowk market as seen from Nai Sarak street, and other street scenes busy with pedestrians and cyclists, and a tram. [From 1908 to 1963 trams operated in Old Delhi] In New Delhi, the officer visited the Lakshmi Narayan Temple and courtyard [Laxminarayan Temple, Birla Mandir Temple] which had only recently been completed in 1939, the Jama Masjid mosque, and the India Gate memorial next to the King George Memorial. Another view from the memorial site provides a distant snapshot view of the ancient fort called Purana Qila, with the King George V Coronation Memorial, complete with statue standing in the foreground [the statue has since been relocated, leaving only the canopy structure]. A tour of the Qutb complex results in lovely snapshot images, inclding a view of the Qutub Minar iron pillara which is famous for its testament to skillful ironwork of ancient times. Other views include Rashtrapati Bhavan, a Presidential Residence formerly known as Viceroy's House and now the official home of the President of India, including views of the Mughal Garden and Viceregal Garden, and the circular shaped Council House, built between 1921-1927, and which is now the Parliament Building [The opening ceremony was performed on 18 January 1927 by Lord Irwin, the then Viceroy of India.] Here he also includes photographs of the Corps of Signals' Headquarters and telegraph operations systems. The Defence Medal is a campaign medal which was instituted by the United Kingdom in May 1945, to be awarded to subjects of the British Commonwealth for non-operational service in the Armed Forces, the Home Guard, the Civil Defence Service, and other approved civilian services during the period from 3 September 1939 to 2 September 1945, inclusive. It was issued for specific campaigns and service parameters, including service in Bengal and Assam, west of the Brahmaputra, from 1 January 1944 to 2 September 1945. The War Medal 1939-1945 is a campaign medal which was instituted by the United Kingdom on 16 August 1945, for award to subjects of the British Commonwealth who had served full-time in the Armed Forces or the Merchant Navy for at least 28 days between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945. Signalling in the British Army was the responsibility of the Telegraph Battalion until 1908 when the Royal Engineers Signal Service was formed. The Royal Corps of Signals was officially come to be on 28th June 1920, then simply called Corps of Signals. Before the outbreak of the Second World War, recruits were required to be a minimum of 5 feet 2 inches tall, all recruits were taught to ride horses, and they did their signal training at Catterick, North Yorkshire. During the Second World War, the majority of the Corps was stationed overseas, with around a third stationed in India. Participating in every major battle, at the end of the war the Corps numbered 8,518 officers and 142,472 soldiers. The Corps motto is Certa Cito, which translates to Swift and Sure. Stanley E. Dean, Rank SGN, army identification number 14532788, received the Defence Medal and corresponding ribbon bar for his service in Bengal and Assam between 1 January 1944 and 2 September 1945, as well as the War Medal 1939-1945 for his full-time service in the war during its two latter years..
