        FU^DO

      1943. Very Good. KITASONO Katue, poet. FUDO. Shoshinsha, Showa 18 [1943]. 8vo, 20.4 x 14.0 cm. One of 1500 copies. An example of Kitasono's "plastic poetry". The dustwrapper, cover, the typography, all combine as a fluid visual container for Kitasono's brilliant poems. There is not space here to even begin to describe Kitasono's importance to world art and literature. I would refer you to the several works of John Solt, both translations and critical essays, as well as several exhibitions dedicated to Kitasono mounted here and in Europe, as well. Very good condition, complete as issued.

        Tailed Amphibians of Japan

      Osaka: Nippon Publishing Company, . First edition. 1943 - Pp. (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). Publisher's original dark blue cloth, lettered in silver on the spine, front cover with silver vertical rule, in original cardboard slipcase lettered in black on the front cover and spine, sm 4to. 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..

        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. Some foxing and soiling to covers, internally fine. (#111168) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.
