        GREATER NEW YORK ARMY & NAVY COMMITTEE OF THE JEWISH WELFARE BOARD: IN SERVICE FOR THE SERVICES.

      New York, JWB N.D. - 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.

        Christmas - This Way! [with] Original Brass binding die-stamp for the spine of the book

      New York: Oxford University Press, (1943). New York: Oxford University Press. (1943). First. First edition. Illustrated by Robb Beebe. Octavo. Slight wear, about fine in handsome near fine dustwrapper with a short tear and modest age-toning.[With]: Original brass binding die stamp for the spine of the book. Approximately 0.5" x 6.75". A little tarnished, else near fine. The die reads (in reverse lettering): "Beebe / Christmas This Way / Oxford".The provenance presents a mildly interesting story: a local colleague was buying books out of the trunk of a gentleman's car and came across a bag of brass die-stamps from the Oxford University Press from the late 1930s through the early 1950s, when Oxford did much of their printing in the U.S. My colleague inquired and the gentleman revealed that his next stop was the scrap yard where he was going to sell the dies to be melted down for the brass. My colleague paid him double the scrap price for them. We paid a bit more. In any event, a unique artifact from this charming children's book. .

        PSYOP - PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE: Afrika-Post. Wochenblatt für Deutsche Truppen in Tunesien

      [Constantine, Algeria] January 11th, ; [Tunisia] February, 8th 1943; March 8th, 1943. - 3 numbers: 4°, 2 pp. mimeographed text on both sides; 8°, [1] printed text on both sides; [1] printed text on both sides (Very Good, soft folds, slightly stained in margins) Three numbers (of 6) of an extremely rare newspaper "Africa-Post. Weekly Newspaper for the German Troops in Tunisia", printed by the Allies in Tunisia during WWII, in German language for the German troops, in order to cause a psychological warfare. The articles include news of the world, with a special focus on German affairs in a subtlety disquieting way. The first issue was made on January 11th, 1943, as it became clear Hitler is about to lose the battle of Stalingrad, which was a turning point in WWII. This was the first major battle lost by the Germans, which meant a huge boost of self-confidence for the Allies. At the same time the German army in North Africa was already strongly demoralised after the Battle of El-Alamein. This Allied fake German newspaper was issued at a perfect timing in order to demoralise German troops, which were at the time psychologically weak and unsure about the news they were receiving from Germany as well as about their future. The Africa-Post gave them details on the Hitler’s defeat at Stalingrad and the financial troubles Germany was facing at the time. It also gave the soldiers hints about their being neglected by their homeland. Short tips were given to German soldiers, how to desert to the Allied camps in North-Africa, in case they had doubts about them still being there. These are number 1, 4, and 5 of 6 issues of this newspaper were published. The first 2 issues were mimeographed in Constantine, Algeria, and distributed in German territory by companies of foot soldiers. The other 4 were printed. We could only trace one set of the newspapers in the British Library and one number (nr. 4.) in the State Library in Berlin.

        EL REFERI CUENTA NUEVE: NOVELA

      Editorial Cultura, [Ciudad de] Mexico 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.

        Pesmi [Songs]

      1943. Large uncut and unbound sheet containing the blueprint text for a book of Partisan and International revolutionary and liberation songs from the underground Communist Press of Slovenia, including Slovenian, Russian, and popular international songs in Spanish and Italian, each with a brief caption explaining the song's significance to the Communist movement and accompanied by a Soviet or Communist illustration, 36 songs total. Soft creases, small tears to margins, overall very good condition. 94.5" x 9.8". Blueprint text on thin paper, loose as issued. Ljubljana (Okrožna Tehnika Komunisti ne Partije Slovenije) 1943. The Communist Press of Slovenia operated for the duration of the war in Axis-occupied Ljubljana, which was under Italian occupation from 1941 to 1943 and German occupation from 1943 to 1945. The press specialized in publishing propaganda pamphlets through improvised printing techniques and existed underground out of necessity, constantly in danger of being discovered and its members arrested or killed. This sheet was meant to be cut into leaves and bound as a book, but this rare example survived uncut, straight from the press. Each song has some significance to the Communist movement, and the illustrations depict relevant iconography, including marching Partisans, naval vessels, airplanes, flags, and citizens. Incredibly scarce; as of March 2017, WorldCat only locates three holdings of the bound book in Slovenia and no examples in North America.

        LAURA

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1943., 1943. First edition. First edition. Original blue cloth, titles in red on front cover and spine. Faint evidence of bookplate removal from the front free fly leaf, else a near fine, bright copy in a lightly restored dust jacket that is sunned on the spine and with minor wear to top and bottom edges of the rear cover panel. This book is the author's first mystery and a Haycraft/Queen mystery title. The story opens and Laura's life is ended ... killed in the doorway of her apartment with a shotgun blast that obliterated her face. Three men who knew her best tell the story. Some of it is told by the newspaper columnist, some by her fiance, and most by the detective involved in the case. Laura Hunt was the ideal modern woman: beautiful, elegant, highly ambitious, and utterly mysterious. No man could resist her charms—not even hard-boiled NYPD Detective Mark McPherson, who was sent to investigate the murder. As McPherson investigates the mystery of Laura’s death, he becomes obsessed with her strange power. He soon realizes he’s been seduced by a dead woman ..... or has he? The story is told on screen in 1944 by Twentieth Century-Fox using the title "Laura" and directed by Otto Preminger. The cast starred Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, Vincent Price, and Judith Anderson.

        MURDER ON THE DOWNBEAT

      New York: Mystery House, 1943., 1943. First edition. First edition. Former owner's bookplate to front pastedown sheet else fine in dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends and extremities, and a faint small crease to top edge of the rear panel. The milieux of Robert Avery's Murder on the Downbeat are the swing clubs in midtown Manhattan and the after-hours joints in Harlem. Recording company scout and jazz columnist Malachy Bliss assumes the role of amateur detective when first one and then another jazz musician is murdered and his girlfriend is jailed as a suspect. Although this book moves breezily along after the fashion of Dashiell Hammett's Thin Man series, it nevertheless carries a modest but meaningful racial subtext in its portrayal of Harlem as a place where musicians, both black and white, can go after work "to play honest, uninhibited jazz with the best musicians in the world" (Rife, David. Jazz Fiction: A History and Comprehensive Reader's Guide, p.43). A scarce title from this Arcadia House imprint.

        Archive: World War II-era reports, photographs, and medals

      1943. (WORLD WAR II) (U.S.S. YORKTOWN). Archive: World War II-era reports, photographs, and medals. Pacific Ocean: November 1943-February 1944. Nineteen pages of documents, four photographs, five service medals and Navy aviator's badge, various sizes. $3000.Archive of contemporary documents, photographs, and service medals from the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Yorktown, chronicling the carrier's cruise to the Gilbert Islands in November 1943 to support the Allied invasion of the island of Tarawa, as well as the attack on the main Japanese anchorage at Truk Atoll in February 1944. The archive also includes a series of World War II service medals including American Defense, American Campaign, Asiatic Pacific Campaign, and World War II, as well as the Air Medal (with one star) and a Navy aviator's badge. The archive includes 13 contemporary mimeographed battle reports submitted by various pilots of Torpedo Squadron Five (VT-5) aboard the Yorktown during Operation Hailstone, a major U.S. raid on the main Pacific Japanese naval base at Truk staged in February, 1944.Nicknamed ""The Gibraltar of the Pacific"" by the Allies, the Truk Islands served as the main Pacific base for the Imperial Japanese Navy. In February of 1944 the U.S. planned and carried out a raid on the base, code-named Operation Hailstone. The Japanese received advance warning of the raid and managed to evacuate their heavy battleships and carriers, but the raid nonetheless 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 became increasingly isolated, but did not surrender until August, 1945, although the garrison was near starvation by that point.Lt. (jg) W. Laliberte's after-battle report is one of the more interesting accounts. After taking off at 1300 local time, he rendezvoused with his squadron and climbed to 14,000 feet before mounting a diving attack on his target, a ""fat little AKÂ… At the bottom of my dive I was making 36 knotsÂ…"" Laliberte's bombs fell short, but as he was pulling away he noticed ""what appeared to be a little ship towing an even smaller one, but the wake showed a speed of nearly 20 knots. Upon closer investigation these two little ships turned out to be a submarine. I immediately attacked, and dropped one 500# bomb which either landed on top of or directly below the just submerged submarine. A terrific explosion resulted and a large oil slick covered the surface for about 20 yards. When I got back to the ship I was informed that while attacking the submarine a Tony [Kawasaki, Ki-61, Hein Army Type 3 Fighter] made a run on me, which I didn't know anything about at the timeÂ…"" (Interestingly, the official list of sunken and damaged vessels from that raid does not include a submarine.) Lt. Commander R. Upson's account provides an excellent account of the action below him as he circled above Truk at 14,000 feet, and reads, in very small part: ""One heavy cruiser and two destroyers were sighted just south of North Pass, maneuvering and firing AA guns. There were two destroyers approaching the cruiser's position from the south. One or possibly two fighters were strafing the cruiser at that timeÂ… A large number of fires, presumably airplanes, were seen on the western side of the Moen bomber stripÂ… The break-up of the bombers and torpedo planes occurred almost directly over Eten Island. Divers made toward the northeast. Torpedo planes went into their dives at almost the same time that the bombers went in, 0835, and in the same directionÂ… My drop was interfered with by the cross-wind, which was stronger than I had anticipated."" Much more fine content is included in this archive, with four excellent contemporary photographs documenting the Truk Island strikes.The archive also concerns an earlier mission conducted in support of the U.S. Marine landings at Tarawa, which took place between November 20 and 23, 1943, and include daily schedules for the Yorktown's crew for November 15, 19, 20 and 21, 1943, as well as two pages of teletype news from the fleet's radar station, dated in pencil ""26 Nov. 1943 1900 [hrs.]"" The carrier, on its return from the Gilbert Islands encountered ""BOGIES AT 040 AT 40 MILES CROSSING., OUR COUSRE.,..BOGEYS STILL ORBITING AT 040 DIST 40 MI.,..BOGEY ABLE AT 048 DIST 38 MIÂ… TWO WHIE FA XX FLARES SIGNTED 15 MI., ON SÂ….BOGEY DOG AT 107 DIST 19 MI."" The radar continued to track the enemy planes until ""BOGEY ABLE FADED FROM SCREEN."" Another one appeared soon afterwards which ""LOOKS TO US LIKE SNOOPER WHO HAVE,.PASSED AHEAD OF DISPOSITION."" Soon after the ""LEXINGTON REPORTS SAME BOGEY AS SURFACE.,CONTACT,"" the ""ENTERPRISE HAS JUST REPORTED UNDER FAIRLY,.HEAVY AIR ATTACK . ENTERPRISE POSITION. AT PREP XX PRESENT TIME APPROX 23 MI.,WEST OF TARAWA.,..SURFACE CONTACT ONLY INDICATION AT PRESENT.,ON RADAR SCREEN., CORRECTION – SARATOGA AND PRINCETON., - NOT ENTERPRISE – ARE UNDER ATTACK."" File holes, very light toning, else fine condition overall.
