        The Mass Extermination of Jews in German Occupied Poland.

      London: Published on behalf of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs by Hutchinson & Co.,, 1943. Note addressed to the Governments of the United Nations on December 10th, 1942, and other documents. Octavo. Original self-wraps, wire-stitched. Front wrapper faded, minor rust stains from staples. A very good copy. First and only edition. An early revelation of the methods of the Holocaust based upon the extraordinary work of Jan Karski. Karski was a remarkable figure: a graduate in law and diplomacy from Jan Kazimierz University, he served as a diplomat in Germany, Britain and Switzerland in the late 1930s, before joining the ministry of foreign affairs in 1939. Mobilised on the outbreak of war, he was captured by the Red Army, but managed to conceal his true rank and was exchanged into German hands, thus avoiding Katyn. He escaped from the train taking him into captivity, and made his way to Warsaw where he joined the resistance. He was instrumental in setting up a secret courier system to communicate with the Polish government in exile, and himself made a number of trips to France and Britain. In 1942 Karski was selected to carry this special report to Sikorski in London, detailing Nazi atrocities in Poland. In gathering eyewitness evidence he made two visits to the Warsaw ghetto, and also gained access to an extermination camp, believed by him to have been Belzec, disguised as a Ukrainian guard, a selection of which evidence is presented here. For the next three years he travelled the world, committed to publicising the plight of Polish Jewry, obtaining personal interviews with a wide range of influential figures, including Anthony Eden, Roosevelt, Cordell Hull and Felix Frankfurter, but failing to initiate any major intervention. Frankfurter said of his meeting with Karski: "I did not say that he was lying, I said that I could not believe him. There is a difference." As part of his efforts he also gave hundreds of lectures to organizations all over America, and after the war settled there, teaching Eastern European affairs at Georgetown for 40 years. In 1982 Yad Vashem recognised Karski as Righteous among Nations, and in 1994 he was made an honorary Israeli citizen; he died in 2000. A study of Karski's work, Karski: How One Man Tried to Stop the Holocaust, by Wood and Jankowski was published in 1994. An important, uncommon, and fragile pamphlet.

        Bread and Democracy in Germany. Latifundia perdidere Germaniam. (Inscribed by Gerschenkron to his parents and sister during World War II.)

      Berkeley & Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1943. - First Edition. viii, 1 leaf, 238 pp; 2 maps; graph. Original cloth. Some mottling of covers. Else Very Good, in torn dust jacket. Inscribed: 'To Papa, Mama, and Lydia/with love and gratitude, a/book which I hoped I would be able to/present in person. Shura/December 17, 1943'. 'Bread and Democracy in Germany is his longest single piece of published writing. Like everything he wrote, it is much less a comprehensive study than an essay. Shura [the name Gerschenkron was known by] chose big topics -- in this case the rise of German fascism -- and mastered them with muscular reading and archival research. Then, when it was time to write, he did so with a lathe, turning his ideas over and over as he honed them into lean meditations. Published in 1943, when Shura was thirty-nine, Bread and Democracy has served him as an elegant calling card among other scholars ever since. Martin Peretz picked it up as a Harvard graduate student in the 1960s and says, ‘I read it twice -- I couldn't believe how good it was.’ Writing in the New Yorker in 1991, Patrick Smith praised Shura’s book at length as a ‘classic of economic history.’ In truth, Bread and Democracy is really a classic of Austrian scholarship, a book whose eclectic intellectual pedigree makes it as much a work of political science and sociology as anything economic. The book’s subject is the Junkers, the powerful Prussian planter aristocrats who owned the sprawling wheat, oat, barley, and rye fields east of the Elbe River. The Junker landowners’ influence with the German government was such that in modern times they wrested a medieval privilege for themselves -- the right to supply all of Germany with bread grains. The grain monopoly enabled the Junker estate owners to charge wildly inflated amounts for their crops, meaning that the German population was paying double the market price for bread. Bread and Democracy argues that the tolerance of such blatant government protectionism was symptomatic of an antidemocratic sensibility in German politics that left the country vulnerable to fascism. Hitler made shrewd use of the situation. The public welcomed the dictator partly because he seemed likely to stand up to the abuses of the monied establishment. And the Nazis did spend a lot of time loudly denouncing the Junkers. Then they slipped into back rooms and cut deals with them, an insidious pattern that led Shura, writing in 1943, to conclude that ‘if the grain of the Junkers grows, the grain of German democracy will wither and perish from the earth.’ That wasn’t a bad sentence for someone with less than five years of English. It was also the closest the author would come to suggesting that the Nazis were anything more to him personally than garden variety villains' (Nicholas Dawidoff, The Fly Swatter: How My Grandfather Made His Way in the World, 2002, pp. 126-7).

        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 en u re i nA d o l fH i t l e rp a r i e r e nk 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.

        FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943)

      Paramount 1943 - REVISED FINAL, JULY 20, 1942. The famous screen adaptation which starred Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman, directed by Sam Wood. Studio mimeograph, self-wrappers, the original two staples are missing, and so the pages are loose, 202 pp. the title page and the final page are a bit fragile, overall VERY GOOD+. This film, when released in 1943, had an epic running time of 170 minutes, but this script's massive length implies an even longer film, which in turn suggests that some of the scenes in this script were either never shot or else were not included in the finalized version.

        Handleiding om op verschillende wijzen de breedte buiten den middag of meridiaan te vinden, door waarnemingen aan de zon of starren. Groningen, R.J. Schierbeek, 1827. 8vo. With a lithographed folding plate and numerous letterpress tables (numbered I-VI, but some spread over several pages). Contemporary boards, covered with red sprinkled paper, rebacked with brown paper tape.

      - Bierens de Haan 1943; Cat. NHSM, p. 687; Crone Library 807, cf. pp. xlvii-xlviii; Maritieme Gesch. der Nederlanden III, p. 216; Picarta (2 copies); Saakes VIII, pp. 371-372; WorldCat (same 2 copies). Very rare first edition of a guide introducing Hazewinkel's method of calculating latitude, which was subsequently implemented as the standard method in the national Dutch marine and remained in use until the end of the 19th century. This method by Abraham Cornelis Hazewinkel (1772-1842), a ship's captain who established a Dordrecht school for training sailors in 1817, was also invented simultaneously, but independently, by the Dutch mathematician Rehuel Lobatto (1797-1866), and is known as the Lobatto-Hazewinkel method. It replaced the longer method of Cornelis Douwes, introduced in the late 18th century. An equally rare second edition, published in 1839, was reprinted in facsimile in 1992.With a library stamp on title-page, some occasional foxing, one leaf slightly soiled in the lower margins, binding slightly rubbed and rebacked, with the top of the spine torn. Good nearly untrimmed copy, with most of the deckles intact.

        A Song about Tsar Ivan Vasilyevich, the Young Oprichnik, and the Valorous Merchant Kalashnikov].

      Goslitizdat Moskva 1943 - Folio (33 x 24 cm). 20 pp., illustrated throughout in B&W. Publisher's wrappers; small marginal tears, corners slightly creased. One of the Bilibin's last works in book illustration; unusually fine edition published during the outbreak of the Second World War. The "Song of the Merchant Kalashnikov" is a poem by Mikhail Lermontov written in 1837 in the manner of bylina, the Russian folk epic. The plot of the poem is set during the times of Ivan the Terrible and Oprichnina. Ivan Bilibin (1876 – 1942) was a member of the renown artistic circle "Mir Iskusstva" and one of the most famous illustrators of children's books both in and out of Russia and. This Lermontov's work captivated the artist's imagination when he was still a young man. In 1904 Bilibin illustrated two episodes from the poem - "Kiribeyevich and Alena Dmitriyevna" and "A feast the the Ivan the Terrible's". More than 30 years later, in 1938, Bilibin received an order from the state publisher to illustrate the whole book. The first edition was published in 1941 followed closely by the second in 1943. Fine and expensive production of the book comes as a surprise given that the country was badly affected by the ongoing war. Indeed, the Soviet government knew well that books with the right message were a powerful source of courage and patriotism in the difficult times. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Blick über Eisenach mit dem Stadttor und der Nikolaikirche zur Wartburg.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin. 36,5:53,5 cm. – Zu den Rändern hin leicht vergilbt, drei Ecken mit kleinen Fehlstellen sowie einem Farbfleck. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Inv. 71. Der Landschaftsmaler und Radierer Carl Hummel war 1834-1842 Schüler an der Weimarer Zeichenakademie bei dem Maler und Radierer F. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878), der Hummels spezielle Vorliebe für die „heroische Landschaft" prägte. Gemeinsam mit Preller unternahm er 1839-1841 Studienreisen nach Holland, Norwegen, Rügen und nach Tirol. Neben dem Studium bei Preller machte er zudem bei J.B. Schwerdgeburth (1759–nach 1822) eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher. 1842 reiste er nach Italien; in Rom, auf Capri und Sizilien hielt er sich längere Zeit auf. 1844 kehrte er in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1845-1846 besuchte er erneut Rom, danach reiste er in die Schweiz. 1855 erfolgte auf Einladung des Erbprinzen Georg von Meiningen ein Aufenthalt auf dessen Villa Carlotta am Comer See. 1859 wurde er als Professor an die Weimarer Zeichenschule berufen. 1869 unternahm er eine Reise nach Korsika, in den folgenden Jahren jedoch meist nur noch Reisen in die Mittelgebirge. Hummel, Sohn des gefeierten Pianisten und Komponisten Johann Nepomuk Hummel, zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern seiner Heimatstadt. Sein Vater war von Maria Pawlowna (1786-1859), Großfürstin von Rußland, Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar und Großherzogin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach 1818 als Kapellmeister nach Weimar berufen worden, eine Stellung, die er bis 1838 innehatte. Die Großfürstin, die nach ihrer Heirat 1804 aus St. Petersburg nach Weimar kam, förderte mittels ihrer reichen Mitgift in besonderer Weise Musik, Theater, Bildende Kunst und Literatur und verhalf damit dem zwar geistig und literarisch hoch entwickelten, aber verarmten Hof zu neuem Aufschwung. Auch Carl erhielt bekanntermaßen von der Großfürstin einige Aufträge.

        Sammlung von 51 privaten Photos eines deutschstämmigen Soldaten der Hagana und Notrim im damaligen Mandatsgebiet Palästina.

      Palästina ca. 1938 bis 1943. - Militärische Photosammlung eines deutschstämmigen Juden im damaligen Mandatsgebiet Palästina. Einige Photos mit deutschsprachigen Beschriftungen und teils mit Photostudiostempeln auf den Rückseiten (Photo Spezial Kaufman, Tel-Aviv; Photo Brenner Haifa; Photo Sonia; Photo Mordhai Haifa; Foto SPORT, Tel-Aviv), 3 Photos mit Datierungen: 1938, 1942 und 1943. Einige Photos mit Namensnennungen der Abgebildeten: Ephraim Rosenzweig, Sry Kesnik und Kurt Humberg, ledigleich einmal eine Ortsnennung: Kalkilia. Allerdings gehören zur Sammlung auch 2 Bilder von Gizeh (wahrscheinlich von einem Ausflug zu den Pyramiden). Aufnahmen der Hagana und der Notrim (jüdische Polizeitruppe im Völkerbundsmandat für Palästina), bei der Wache und bei Kontrollgängen, wohl auch Aufnahmen verschiedener Kibbuzim, einige Photos zeigen zu militärischen Nutzen umfunktionierte Transportmaschinen, teils auch auf Eisenbahnschinen, beim Straßenbau, LKWs, verunglückte Autos etc. Es könnte sich um eine Einheiten der Jewish Settlement Police (J.S.P.) handeln, einer Unterabteilung der Notrim. 1936 im Völkerbundsmandat für Palästina gegründet, wurden die Soldaten der J.S.P. aus der Hagana rekrutiert und zu einer Elitetruppe ausgebildet. Die Mitglieder der J.S.P., bekannt als Nodedot, wurden von ihrem Kommandant Jitzchak Sadeh für eine unkonventionelle Kriegsführung trainiert. Diese zeichnete sich durch ihre hohe Mobilität und überraschende Angriffe aus. Die J.S.P. war bei den Arabern sehr gefürchtet. Eine spannende private Sammlung vor der Gründung des Staates Israel zumal von einem deutschstämmigen Angehörigen dieser Einheit! Meist im Kleinformat (ca. 6x9 cm) und einige wenioge im Mittelformat (ca. 14x9 cm). Meist etwas ausgeblichen, gelegentliche leichtere Knickspuren, sonst eine gut erhaltene Sammlung.

        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.

        Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves (Original screenplay for the 1944 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1943. Revised Draft script for the 1944 film.

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.

        Signed Photograph, signed as Prime Minister during World War II, 6.5 by 5.9 inches, 1944. Gelatin silver print signed on original mount

      - Prime Minister Churchill, shown seated with his right arm resting on the edge of his Cabinet table and facing directly into the camera, has signed on the original manilla mount, "Winston S. Churchill. He had apparently written the date as "1943," then crossed out "3" and changed it to "4" suggesting he signed the photograph in early 1944. This is the well known image taken by Walter Stoneman with his studio stamp on verso. Stoneman made the well known war time image for the national Photographic Record at the Cabinet Office on April 1, 1941, probably about 3 PM. Churchill would give out this image, typically in smaller format, to those who worked for him during the war. Condition: Image is noticeably silvered with pinhead size break at upper left corner; some soiling to mount and slight wear at corners. Note that what looks like fingerprints appear more prominent in this image due to scanning. Exceptional in size for this well known image. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
