        The Big Rock Candy Mountain

      New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, (1943). First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 515 pages. Stegner's attempt at the Great American Novel, a tragedy of a family striving for the American dream but ending up in shady, half-baked schemes. Stegner's first big book. According to Colberg, Wallace Stegner: A Descriptive Bibliography, the first printing was around 15,000 copies (A7.1.a). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket with light wear to the edges. This copy is inscribed, 'To Staunton Calvert, with warm remembrances. Wallace Stegner. Breadloaf, Aug. 20, '44.' Calvert appears to have been an aspiring writer from Washington, DC, who published a bit here and there. Below Stegner's signature is a second inscription, probably from one of Calvert's fellow students: 'and the best of regards Lewis Lofton Moneyway - 'Jim'.' Moneyway worked at the Post Office in Washington, DC, and lived at the University Club, where he wrote plays and musicals for the members. A somewhat uncommon book signed, particularly with a contemporary inscription.

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

      London: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1943 - 2 volumes quarto. The first in full green, and the second 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. 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]

        CAPTIVE WILD WOMAN (1943)

      Universal 1943 - Vintage original 36 x 14" (90 x 35 cm.) insert poster, USA. Acquanetta, John Carradine, Evelyn Anker, Milburn Stone, Lloyd Corrigan, dir: Edward Dmytryk; Universal. A mad scientist is on the prowl and, after he does a brain transplant into a giant gorilla, the results are predictably disastrous. The film relied heavily on stock footage shot for The Big Cage (1933), and thus the crediting of Clyde Beatty. The star Mildred Davenport, renamed Acquanetta, did not say a word throughout. This poster is a very scarce size, seldom seen. It has nice, bright colors. Poster is unfolded, there was very discreet touch-up work addressing several tiny tears to the blank margins; the result is a bit of conservation done to the margins with a little paint, and some archival paper reinforcing the poster on the back. The body of the poster itself is unrestored and really nice. Includes a grading certificate from MP Grading of 9.5. FINE-

        WWII British Intelligence Deception Scheme to Mislead German Attention and Permitted the Invasion of Sicily

      England, 1946-2004. Research portfolio of English solicitor Sir Robert Ricketts, 7th Baronet Ricketts, endeavoring to ascertain the particulars of the "true incident" which inspired the plan for Operation Mincement, and the fate of the mysterious 'Man Who Never Was.' Comprises 3 signed letters, 9 photographs, 17 newspaper articles and announcements, 1 calling card, 2 maps, and 7 pages of personal notes. Of special interest are two early letters from 1946 by Captain Guy Dingwall Williams, Vice-Consulate and Assistant British Naval Attaché in Madrid, who collected some of the deceased aviator's garments at the site of the Barrosa Catalina crash near Cadiz one year prior to Operation Mincement. The third letter is from Ralph Bennett, author and historian who worked for four years at Bletchley Park as a senior producer of the intelligence (Ultra). Documents and photographs range in size; the manuscript notes are initialed R.C.R. [Robert Cornwallis Ricketts]; contained in plastic sleeves in a binder, and neatly organized and indexed for easy reference. A morbidly clever World War II strategy which utilized a human corpse for a grand deception is investigated by British nobleman Sir Robert Cornwallis Gerald St Leger Ricketts (1917-2005) who is particularly interested in the "true story" - the inspiration for the unusually macabre plot devised by the otherwise conservative and high-principled British Government. As a young lad serving in the Royal Army during the Second World War, Ricketts was posted in Gibraltar the year after "Operation Mincemeat", and only two years after the preceding tragic incident which occurred on a Gibraltar beach in September 1942, the latter of which he believed inspired the former - a most egregious yet victorious 1943 British Intelligence Strategy. According to a captioned photograph taken on the grounds of Government House in January 1944, Ricketts was serving as Assistant Deputy Fortress Commander at Gibraltar, and evidently acquainted with three of the Governor's assistants. These connections surely provided Ricketts with details then unknown to the public, enough to pique his curiosity and raise further questions, in particular of the crash of an RAF FP119 seaplane Barrosa Catalina near Cadiz in 1942, and of the body of the plane's pilot, Eric Turner, to be washed ashore with a secret letter for authorities still present in his pocket. Seeking primary source information, in 1946 Ricketts wrote to his friend Captain Guy Dingwall Williams "Don Guido" (1889-1959), who was British Vice-Consulate in Spain during the war. The portfolio contains two (2) response letters from Williams, specifically recollecting details surrounding the RAF seaplane crash of 1942. Affixed to the letter, Williams includes three news clippings pertaining to the incident. Residing with his wife Nina in Cadiz at the time, Guy Williams describes scouring the shore and finding some clothing which belonged to Lieutenant Turner of the felled aircraft. Excerpts from letters by Captain Williams, dated 13 and 26 March, 1946, respectively : "Now, with regard to the Barrosa Catalina... as far as I was involved... 18th October 1942,, we picked up a pyjama coat marked E.J. Turner..." "... the Catalina crashed on or about the 25th September 1942, and when we went down on Sunday the 27th, our keeper told us that he had heard an explosion... that the day before, viz. Saturday the 26th (?)... the two bodies had been washed up and also a dispatch case with papers on the beach within half a mile of our little house." "... the Spanish Authorities warned Algeciras who in their turn told Gibraltar... Bobby... brought the bodies back and when they were searched in Gibraltar an envelope containing the most "Top secret" letter addressed to the Governor of Gibraltar was found in a pocket..." "... what had been picked up... several lists of names... must have been some form of black list. Further bodies and wreckage were washed up afterwards." "Collie [British Consul at Cadiz] at one time assured me that the Spaniards knew everything... the Admiral at San Fernando was very pro-German..." "Collie from Cadiz... had been told for a fact that the papers found on the beach had been sent up by hand by a naval officer called Cuvillo very urgently and with strict orders that he was to hand them personally to Franco in Madrid, and that Franco passed them on at once to the German Embassy, who said they were too late to do anything but they sent them to Berlin. I do not think this can be very true... Berlin could have found plenty of time to look into the question of the huge North African convoy crossing the Atlantic..." We also find a signed letter addressed to Ricketts, 28 June 1994, from Ralph Bennett, an author and historian who worked at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. In his letter he mentions Bletchley's 'Ultra' Secret; he acknowledges receipt of notes from Ricketts on the 1942 crash which inspired the movie 'The Man Who Never Was'; and he discusses his books. [Bennett wrote, "Behind the Battle: Intelligence in the War with Germany, 1939-45," published in London, 1994, and several other works on Second World War intelligence.] In 1953, Ricketts travelled to Spain with his wife Anne Theresa to visit the beach where the bodies and debris had been found in 1942, staying at the residence of Guy Williams. A photograph here shows the Ricketts, together with Williams and his wife Nina, as well as the affluent wine and sherry merchant John Harvey, at the Madrid airport. [Ricketts most likely became friends with Captain Guy Dingwall Wiliams during the war while both were in Spain. Popularily known as Don Guido, Captain Wiliams was sent to Cadiz to control revolutionary activities in Spain and to set up a so-called anti-Bolshevik Department. They later had a connection through family as well, Ricketts' wife being the daughter of Sir Stafford Cripps, and Guy Williams' sister having married Lady Islabel Cripps' brother.] Also of interest, he includes a photograph of Lieutenant General Sir Frank Noel Mason-MacFarlane, Governor of Gibraltar from 1942 to 1944, and the intended recipient of the letter being carried by aviator Turner. This image makes an interesting diplomatic connection between Governor MacFarlane and Ricketts' father-in-law Sir Stafford Cripps by way of a 1941 mission to Moscow. The important discovery in 1996 which finally revealed the true name of the body used for Operation Mincemeat, and which was substantiated with an official statement by the British Government, evidently re-ignited Ricketts' interest in the mysterious affair. Having consistently gathered more information through the decades, in 1997 he began making manuscript notes, continuing until the year before his passing in 2004, to connect the details and summarize the events of this great puzzle. [In 1996 Roger Morgan, an amateur historian from London, uncovered an array of evidence in the Public Record Office revealing the identity of the corpse, not as that of a Major Martin, but that of a Welsh labourer named Glyndwr Michael. Research done by historian Christopher Andrew came to the same conclusion, which he published in his book on the history of the Secret Service entitled "The Defence of the Realm". Cementing the theory, at least for most, in 1998, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission added an inscription on Major Martin's grave in Huelva which reads "Glyndwr Michael served as Major William Martin." The research of Canadian Professor Denis Smyth, published in 2010 in his book, "Operation Mincemeat: Death, Deception and the Mediterranean D-Day", would further supporting these claims.] A fascinating war story still shrouded with ongoing controversy, most of the speculation surrounds the proof of true identity of the body. Others such as Baron Ricketts, seek to uncover the roots of the bizarre and ingenious plan. It is most widely accepted that approximately one month after the Turner crash, British intelligence officer Charles Cholmondeley of MI5 outlined a plan based on the tragedy, a plan which was improved upon by Ewen Montagu, Naval intelligence officer and Judge Advocate of the Fleet. Historian and author Ben Macintyre and others, believe that the plan was conceived by Ian Fleming, an assistant to the head of British Naval Intelligence, and later the creator of James Bond. Fleming evidently claims that he'd lifted the idea from a detective novel.

        Der Weg zum deutschen Sieg

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP Franz Eher Nachf., 1943 - Vollständige Ausgabe im Original Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband 8vo im Format 21 x 15 cm) mit farbig illustriertem Deckeltitel (Umschlagzeichnung: Arno Krause/Berlin), 30 Seiten. Aus dem Inhalt: Die große Wende - Die bolschewistische Winteroffensive 1942/43 - Der anglo-amerikanische Terror - Die Kämpfe in Nordafrika und Tunesien - Der U-Boot-Krieg und die Schlacht auf den Ozeanen - Die moralische Front des deutschen Volkes und der totale Krieg - Nur die Tat bringt den Erfolg, und der Erfolg allein beweist die Richtigkeit einer Annahme: Leistungsbereitschaft und Leistungssteigerung - Der deutsche Genius triumphiert. - Mit zeittypischen Ausführungen wie z.B.: "Das Schicksal machte uns den Kampf immer härter. Mit den unvorstellbar grausamen Methoden bolschewistischer Kriegführung konnte kein zivilisierter Mensch rechnen. Alles das zusammen fügt uns dann gegen Ende 1942 und zu Beginn des Jahres 1943 schwere Schläge zu, d i e n u r e i n A d o l f H i t l e r p a r i e r e n k o n n t e ; sie kamen uns Deutschen in der großen Mehrzahl überraschend. Gewiss, wir Nationalsozialisten wussten, daß der Kampf mit den Juden hart auf hart geht, daß nur äußerste Verbissenheit und Zähigkeit gegenüber Juda den Sieg davontragen. Wir hatten es zu oft in heißen Saalschlachten vor der Machtübernahme erlebt, wie gemein, hinterhältig und hartnäckig der Jude sein kann." Die Schrift schließt mit den Worten: ". im vierten Kriegsjahr die große Wende zum endgültigen Sieg Deutschlands vollzogen. Wenn der Sieg greifbar nahe ist, ist es kein Kunststück mehr, von einer großen Wende zu reden, aber wenn die Gegner scheinbare Erfolge erzielt haben und in hysterisches Triumphgeheul verfallen, dann bedarf es der Überlegungen des kühlen und bloßen Verstandes, um die tatsächlichen Chancen richtig werten zu können. Das habe ich durch meine Ausführungen klarzulegen versucht, das habe ich auch in meiner ganzen Arbeit während des Krieges - sowohl als Reichsorganisationsleiter der NSDAP. als auch als Leiter der Deutschen Arbeitsfront - dem deutschen Menschen, insonderheit dem deutschen Arbeiter, immer wieder vor Augen gehalten.

      N. P.: Privately photographed, 1943 & 1944., 1943. First edition. First edition. Original photograph album. Oblong 10 1/2" x 13 3/8" padded and string-tied faux leather with a color decoration of an inn and horse and carriage of the front cover. 133 total photographs, the album contains 59 original images (mostly 3 1/4" x 4 1/2," some 3" x 3," and one 8" x 10." Each photograph is fitted into red-white-blue photograph corners on 10" x 12" black paper stock. The compiler refers to himself as "Jack" or "Jackie," and he is pictured with wife Madge and small son â??Little Billyâ?, and his father â??Big Jackâ?. He traveled to the WWII Pacific theatre on the â??USS Canberraâ?, the only US warship named for a foreign city. The â??Canberraâ? entered service in 1943 and was later torpedoed in the Aerial Battle of Taiwan-Okinawa in 1944 and returned to the US for repairs. Jack was probably at Guadalcanal just after the Campaign ended (Feb. 3, 1943), when it became a major base for the Allies.

        Den fuldkomne fisker.

      1943 1943 - The Compleat Angler or The Contemplative Man's Recreation. Oversat ved Johanne Kastor Hansen, digtene oversat af Otto Gelsted. 1. danske oversættelse. Kbhvn. 1943. Illustr. af Ib Andersen. XXXVII + 402 s. Eksemplar nr. 351 af 1000 numr. eksemplarer med navneliste. Samlet oplag 2500 ekspl. Indbundet med de originale omslag og helt guldsnit med enkeltbladsforgyldning og håndsyede kapitælbånd i smukt auberginefarvet oaseged. Permer og ryg dekoreret symmetrisk med guld- og blindtrykte dekorationer. Kanterne dekoreret med streger i guld. Bindet signeret Anker Kyster 1951. [Henrik Park]. Opbevaret i bogæske, hvorfor skindet er helt uden misfarvning eller falmning. * Bindet er omtalt i Dansk Kunsthåndværk 1952: "Anker Kysters Eftf., H. Park og Bent Andrée: Den fuldkomne fisker fremtrådte i et beundringsværdigt fint helbind, men de korsformede stempler gav bogen et lidt gejstligt præg". Et godt gæt på designeren af dekorationerne vil være Thyge Hvass. Eksemplaret har tilhørt Valter Hansen, der også er opført i navnelisten og fra hvis bo eksemplaret stammer. Eksemplaret har således, indtil nu, kun haft en ejer, som også har fået lavet det fantastiske smukke bind. Bogen blev udgivet af Lystfiskerforeningen. Bogens særpræg skyldes tegneren Ib Andersens uforlignelige illustrationer visende engelske landskaber og fiskeredskaber m.v., ligesom det også var ham, der stod for bogens smukke omslag og for hele tilrettelægningen af den, noget der på mange måder var nyskabende. 'Det er næppe for meget at sige at denne bog er et fuldkomment bogarbejde i forfinet engelsk stil' (Esben Hiort). First Danish translation. Well-preserved copy bound in extra ordinary beautiful full leather. This is regarded as the main work of the illustrator Ib Andersen. Limited to 2500 copies. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
