        Collection of pencil sketches made by Salisbury at the Vauxhall Motors factory, together with a series of large photographs, mainly of the Churchill Tank, together with correspondence making arrangements for factory visits and Salisbury's own 'Factory Pass'.

      1943 - various sizes and formats, largely in clean state, preserved in card folder along with a related newspaper clipping and a large booklet on 'Achievement in Arming the Army' by Guy Leonard (with a section on tank-production), very good. An interesting record of war-time heavy industry. Salisbury's correspondent at the Ministry of Supply was Duncan Sandys, Churchill's son-in-law: 3 of his letters are TLS and 1 is autograph. There are 12 sketches, mostly on cartridge paper. The photographs seem to be official: one has a red printed notice on the back: 'Not to be published without the approval of the Press Officer, Ministry of Supply'.

      New York:: Harcourt, Brace. (1943).. First U.S. edition, preceding the UK hardback edition. Collects BURNT NORTON, EAST COKER, THE DRY SALVAGES, and LITTLE GIDDING--the four titles comprising FOUR QUARTETS, which were first published separately as pamphlets in London in 1941 and 1942. Cyril Connolly included FOUR QUARTETS in his "Modern Movement: 100 Key Books 1880-1950," saying it was "the most important poem since Yeat's 'The Tower,' and, as many think, of the century." This first printing states "first American edition" and is one of only 788 copies released. A good to very good copy in black cloth with corners sharp but a few scattered spots of foxing on endpapers, previous owner's name on front endpaper and gilt on spine somewhat dulled (but still very readable); in the first-state dust jacket with $2.00 price in upper corner of front flap, back flap blank, and the nine titles listed in bold print on the back panel ending with "Old Possum's." The dust jacket, designed by E. McKnight Kauffer, shows a little aging and on the back you can see where a professional conservationist filled in some chipping on top edge as well as a short closed tear. Still, overall, very good. .

        New Zealand Her Natural and Industrial Resources. The New Era.

      London.: H.M. Stationery Office.. Signed in image 1943. Published circa 1948.. Color pictographic / pictorial map, 29 x 19 1/4 inches on sheet size 30 x 20 inches, two folds as issued. Two tiny tears in lower margin, mounted on archival paper Very good condition. One of a series of maps of the colonies highlighting their rich resources which was designed by MacDonald Gill in 1943 for the British Government; the poster was then issued over a period of several years with changing text in the text block at lower right. This particular copy was issued following World War II; the text at lower right reads: "THE NEW ERA. The demands of war caused New Zealand to expand her industries and develop new ones. Their conversion to peaceful purposes and the continued production of vital foodstuffs will be used by New Zealand for two purposes - to maintain her own high standard of living and social security and also to contribute to the well-being of the world at large." Exquisite pictographs of the natural resources, strong color, textual interest, a striking compass rose: these design features all attest to Gill's graphic genius which had a profound impact on the course of 20th century pictorial mapmaking. "Printed for H.M. Stationery Office by Fosh & Cross Ltd. 51-9316" at lower left edge of poster. "O.P.D. 39/219/6" at lower right edge. .

        Faux-Pas] Digressions. Jeu complet d'épreuves abondamment corrigées par l'auteur.

      S.n. 1943 - - S.n., s.l. s.d. (1943), 18,5x41cm. - Epreuves complètes de Faux-Pas - originellement intitulées Digressions, dont le titre est modifié au crayon - comportant de nombreuses corrections et annotations manuscrites et plusieurs passages supprimés. Petites déchirures sans manques sur certains feuillets ainsi que quelques pages cornées. L'on joint trois feuillets tapuscrits avec placards abondamment corrigés. Document unique témoignant du travail de Maurice Blanchot en vue de la publication en volume de ses meilleures chroniques parues dans le Journal des Débats. Ce faux-pas qui ne devait être qu'une digression dans le parcours du jeune écrivain, deviendra la première étape du plus important travail de critique littéraire du XXeme siècle. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision . ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 1950) . So the first story is meant at once the last word and the refusal of its unveiling. "Surely begin to write immediately to achieve at the end (.), this means at least hope not to make a career and finding the shortest path to finish early." In this "Apocalypse" Blanchot leads his own novel being written: Thomas, the hero, and is ironically called the new power otherwise without express "what happened to him [that] saying nothing happened ". But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished. And when the book is finally published, it will be more of a work already substantial: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadab, Faux pas, the Most High, Death Sentence and The Share of fire. Therefore, the last word is not "waiver be Master and Judge," but a written waiver of this "itself in vain." It can no longer be "the unusual resolution to deprive [Language] to support (.) that is to say more than language" but, as part of the work, there is a "word to say and do not say. ". A word rewritten by the writer he became transformed by writing and by war. This is the inaugural version, first draft of thirty young Blanchot, we present here and C. Bident his biographer, thought "probably never know." Narrative foundation, basic writing, many scholars have studied the last man, "painfully complicated" as even the author, but who calls a few "prophetic" pages a reflection on language (and, through him, totalitarianism) marking the second part of the century. Now we present the manuscript written in 1935 and until then unknown, differs considerably from the following two versions of 1947 and 1983. Written in the third person (the later will they, homodiégétiques) the story is much longer. It contains descriptions and including many deleted scenes that will be removed in the published versions: "The sun bathed [plaza] a fiery light of huge mirrors, placed at the four corners, be kicked around in a maze of colors . " A cloud was soon raised to the ceiling, black cloud crossed by small glowing pa [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      United States Government Printing Office, 1943., Washington - First edition. Thick 8vo. Inked presentation inscription "To Col. Truman R. Young with best wishes and pleasant memories of our service together. J. L. DeWitt, Gen. U. S. A. Ret., Washington, D. C., Nov. 11, 1959." Cloth, titles stamped in gold gilt on the front cover and spine, xxiii [blank], 618 pp., foreword, illustrated from photographs, charts, tables, maps, diagrams, and three large folding maps, glossary of terms, appendices, index. Illustrated government report on the need for and means of relocating Japanese citizens of the United States during World War II. Includes several leaves of photographs showing happy internees going about daily tasks. This copy has an especially interesting and desirable provenance: it is inscribed by Gen John L. DeWitt to Col. Truman R. Young on the front endpaper. Gen. DeWitt (1880-1962) was in charge of the Western Defense Command at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As such he was responsible for recommending the removal and internment of Japanese Americans from the West Coast, a plan which he then proceeded to implement, as laid-out in the present volume. When the bombs fell on Pearl Harbor in 1941, and thrust the Unites States into the war, Truman Young was aide-de-camp to DeWitt, and from March 16 to Aug. 8, 1942, he was temporarily reassigned to the new Civil Affairs Division established under the Wartime Civil Control Administration to implement President Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066 of February 1942, expelling "all persons of Japanese ancestry, including aliens and non-aliens," from West Coast military zones. Accompanying this copy is a related archive of papers and photographs. The archive includes three original photographs of DeWitt and Young together, DeWitt by himself, and a Signal Corps photograph of DeWitt and other officers on parade, saluting. Additionally there are fourteen letters signed by DeWitt and addressed to Young (three are hand written, the others typed), dating from November 1943 to April 1947, with a number from 1946, referring to Young's run for Congress. Stamp of "JAG, USAF" on front pastedown sheet and rear fly leaf, small inked page numbers at top of front pastedown sheet that refer to pages where Col. Young is mentioned in the book, and minor wear to spine ends, else a very good, clean copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Is Bombing Decisive? A Study in the Organisation and Tactical Employment of Modern Air Fleets. WALTER CRONKITE'S COPY IN WWII

      Allen & Unwin, [1943]. Sm. 8vo., First Edition; original yellow boards printed in black, blue cloth back with printed paper label, a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped pictorial dustwrapper, the latter wanting about one sixth of rear panel. WALTER CRONKITE'S COPY WITH HIS HOLOGRAPH SIGNATURE ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. The signature reads 'Walter Cronkite, United Press' in blue ink. There is an additional signature in pencil on front paste-down. Cronkite joined United Press in 1937 after a year as sports announcer (only his second job in broadcasting) at KCMO in Kansas City, Missouri. This switch from national to international status was effectively the birth of an American legend, for Cronkite went on to become one of the best-known and most respected American reporters of WWII. After covering the North African theatre he turned his attention to Europe, where he was one of eight journalists selected by USAAF to accompany B-17 bombing raids over Germany. During MARKET GARDEN he landed by glider with 101st Airborne and subsequently covered the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes. His extended post-war career as anchorman with CBS created an American icon. A SPLENDID ASSOCIATION COPY FROM THE EARLIEST PERIOD OF HIS BROADCASTING CAREER. THE WORK ITSELF IS SCARCE; THIS COPY IS VERY POSSIBLY UNIQUE.

        The Greatest Gift

      [No place]: Privately Printed for Distribution to His Friends. Christmas, 1943. First. First edition. Small octavo. 21, [1]pp. Stapled orange wrappers with printed paper label. Bumps at the spine ends, light wear to the wraps with a few tiny spots and near invisible tidemark on the rear wrap, near fine. Signed by the author on the last page. Reportedly one of 200 copies. Stern wrote the first draft of this story, about a man who doesn't realize how much he has given to others until he wishes that he had never been born, in 1938. He set it aside and rewrote it with a Christmas setting in 1943. Unable to sell the story to magazines, he issued it privately as a holiday greeting to friends. The story made its way to Hollywood, where the wife of an RKO studio chief insisted that Frank Capra make a film from it. Dalton Trumbo, Marc Connelly, and Clifford Odets all attempted scripts based on the story, but all were essentially scrapped in favor of a screenplay by Capra, Albert Hackett, Frances Goodrich, and Jo Swerling. For the lead Capra chose Jimmy Stewart who, like the director, had just returned home from distinguished service in the war. The film, It's a Wonderful Life, was released Christmas Day, 1946 and received largely positive reviews. Surprisingly it did not do particularly well at the box office, losing money on its initial release. For the next several decades the film receded to the relative obscurity as did many quality productions of the era. In the early 1970s, however, the copyright to the film was not renewed and it quickly became a staple of holiday programming for local television stations across the country. With this refreshed accessibility it quickly gained a new and appreciative audience and in the last quarter century the film's status has grown well beyond "classic," so that it now stands as an icon of popular culture and is clearly one of the half dozen most-beloved films ever made. This volume was reprinted several times during the 1940s and later printings are often confused with the first edition. A very nice true first edition of this rare film source book. .

        The Gremlins.

      New York: Random House,, 1943. From the Walt Disney Production. A Royal Air Force Story. Quarto. Original red cloth backed red boards, titles to spine in black, colour illustration to upper board, yellow and red pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout. Tips a little rubbed. An excellent, bright copy in the jacket with some short closed tears to spine ends and foot of panels, light tissue repairs to verso. First edition, first printing. Roald Dahl's first book and his only collaboration with Walt Disney, The Gremlins was written as a promotional device for a feature-length Disney animation that was never produced, partly because the studio could not establish firm copyright in the "gremlin" characters (Dahl claimed to have invented them, though they had been common currency in the RAF and had appeared in print at least once before) and partly because the British Air Ministry wanted final approval of the script and production. It was eventually agreed that royalties would be split between the RAF Benevolent Fund and Dahl. The book is still described on the title and the front cover as being "From the Walt Disney Production", although the Disney studio had written to Dahl in August 1943 cancelling any further preproduction work.

Inscribed on the front cover by Kapitsa: «Tov[arishch] Zverev look on p.13 about Narkomfin. P. Kapitsa»;. Markings in text by Kapitsa. This report was read by Kapitsa on 18th of May 1943. The inscription was probably addressed to Arsenii Zverev (1900-1969), Soviet finance minister since 1938 to 1960. In 1942 he was commissioned to supervise issuance of radium and platinum to start work in the nuclear industry. Kapitsa referred to p. 13 because that fragment he dedicated to Ministry of Finance and criticized its financing of the Institute (which he founded in 1943).

        [Faux Pas] Digressions. Tapuscrit original avec corrections manuscrites.

      1943. - 1943, en feuilles. - Molte correzioni. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Tapuscrit recto seul, présentant des biffures et des corrections autographes à l'encre noire. En ouverture de la troisième partie, « Digressions sur le roman », huit feuillets manquent : « Mallarmé et l'art du roman », paginés de 128 à 135.   Début 1943, Gaston Gallimard et Dionys Mascolo proposent à Maurice Blanchot de publier en volume une sélection de ses chroniques littéraires. En mai 1943, l'ouvrage, sous le titre de Digressions, est autorisé par la Commission de contrôle du papier d'édition de Vichy. Mais, avant la fin de l'été, Blanchot décide d'en changer le nom, en témoigne une lettre datée du 30 août de Mascolo à la secrétaire de la Commission, Mme Antelme (alias Marguerite Duras) : « Le texte des "Digressions" autorisé en mai (n° 18159) paraîtra sous le titre de "Faux-Pas". » Toutefois, Blanchot conservera le terme de digression pour baptiser trois de ses parties : « Digressions sur la poésie », « Digressions sur le roman » et « Digressions sans suite ».   Ce jeu d'épreuves, corrigé entre le mois de mai et le mois d'août 1943, révèle un stade intermédiaire et passionnant de la conception du livre. En effet, il dévoile la nécessité du choix consciencieux des articles (qui met davantage l'accent sur les luttes de l'écrivain à l'

Two of the reports in particular are inscribed by his superior General Marshall, Chief of Staff. Volumes from the 'United States Army in World War II' series were evidently presented to General Somervell as they were published, though only a handful have made it into this collection. His family seems to have continued receiving the books after his death in 1955, explaining the later dated items.

        [Faux-Pas] Digressions. Jeu complet d'épreuves abondamment corrigées par l'auteur.

      - S.n., s.l. s.d. (1943), 18,5x41cm. - Primo nuova versione del manoscritto autografo di 17 pagine, scritto nel 1935. Manoscritto di scrittura molto denso, pieno esclusi gli ultimi 13 righe di testo stampato, con molte cancellature, correzioni e aggiunte. Dattiloscritto completo con alcune variazioni rispetto al manoscritto e una copia della edizione originale pubblicato nel 1947 e, infine, pubblicato nel 1950 è allegato. Nel 1935, Blanchot ha lavorato per tre anni a Thomas the Obscure (ha completato nel 1940), quando interrompe la sua scrittura "che non stop" per scrivere l'ultima parola, un racconto che descrive come "un tentativo di aggirare un altro libro in corso per superare la interminabile e ottenere una narrazione più lineare, ma dolorosamente complesso, una decisione in silenzio ... ". Nel 1983 Blanchot riferendosi alle motivazioni di questo "testo innocente dove gli assassini presagi di tempo risuonavano futuro", può non dire "come è scritto e come sconosciuti requisito, esso ha la risposta." "Non è stato un testo per la pubblicazione," dice nella postfazione del senno di poi. L'ultima parola sarà infatti pubblicato 12 anni dopo in 550 esemplari della collezione età d'oro (anche se andò in bancarotta, allo stesso tempo, il libro sarà in vendita nel 1950) . Così la prima storia si intende subito l'ultima parola e il rifiuto della sua inaugurazione. "Sicuramente iniziare a scrivere immediatamente per raggiungere alla fine (...), questo significa almeno spero di non fare carriera e trovare il percorso più breve per finire presto." In questa "Apocalypse" Blanchot porta il suo romanzo essendo scritto: Thomas, l'eroe, ed è ironicamente chiamato il nuovo potere in altro modo senza espressa "cosa è successo a lui [che] dicendo: non è successo niente ". Ma se, iniziando con l'ultima parola, Blanchot segna la fine della scrittura, è un fine che rimane inedito. E quando il libro viene finalmente pubblicato, sarà più di un lavoro già notevole: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadàb, gaffe, l'Altissimo, Death Sentence e la quota del fuoco. Pertanto, l'ultima parola non è "rinuncia sia Maestro e Giudice", ma una rinuncia scritta di questa "si invano." Non può più essere "la risoluzione insolita per privare [Lingua] per sostenere (...), vale a dire più di linguaggio", ma, come parte del lavoro, c'è una "parola da dire e non dire. ". Una parola riscritto dallo scrittore divenne trasformata dalla scrittura e dalla guerra. Questa è la versione inaugurale, prima bozza di trenta giovane Blanchot, vi presentiamo qui e C. Bident suo biografo, pensiero "Probabilmente non sapremo mai." Fondazione narrativa, la scrittura di base, molti studiosi hanno studiato l'ultimo uomo ", dolorosamente complicato", come anche l'autore, ma che chiama un paio di pagine "profetici", una riflessione sul linguaggio (e, attraverso di lui, totalitarismo), che segna la seconda parte del secolo. Ora vi presentiamo il manoscritto nel 1935 e fino ad allora sconosciute, differisce notevolmente dalle seguenti due versioni del 1947 e del 1983. Scritte in terza persona (il più tardi saranno loro, homodiégétiques) la storia è molto più lungo. Esso contiene le descrizioni e le cui molte scene tagliate, che verranno rimossi nelle versioni pubblicate: "Il sole bagnata [piazza] una luce di fuoco di grandi specchi, posti ai quattro angoli, essere preso a calci in un labirinto di colori . "" Una nube fu presto elevato al soffitto, nube nera attraversata da piccole chiazze incandescente. "" Sono preoccupato, ha detto. Ho sbagliato lasciare prima questa casa quando torno a casa, circondata da fiaccole sono spente ad una ad una. Cosa trovo adesso? Come vivere senza di I linea guida? Puoi dirmi qualcosa? "" Alcuni bambini, testa annerito carbone, rimosso la sabbia in cui sono stati sepolti, e cercando di raggiungere con piccole pietre bianche che traevano dalla tasca, insultarono nella loro lingua incomprensibile. "" Approfittando della tregua, i cani dal loro buco, come se fossero stati segretamente eccitato da un maestro, si precipitarono alla dormiente tirando loro link. Hanno cercato di destra, sinistra, poi scoprendo sotto le coperte, sono scivolato malamente, prima in piccolo, poi il grosso cane, come un gruppo vizioso di bambini. "" L'ebbrezza di stare insieme avendo perso più giovane li ha spinti nella propria casa come se avesse cessato di essere loro, e si gettò grida di veglia gli intrusi dalle loro case. "Ma questo manoscritto offre l'esegeta soprattutto dimostrative alcuni passaggi che forniscono chiarimenti sul significato della storia:" Fino a quando non è un modo indifferente per il passato e il futuro. Se si intende estendere un velo su quale approccio, se un collegamento tra, da repulsione reciproca, momenti di tempo separato risulta da qualcosa, qualcosa d'altro non è mostrato, tuttavia, che tale limite. "" Hanno cui nulla è stato proibito di parlare e che conosceva, si comportava come se la loro conoscenza fosse stato a rompere con la lingua. "" Il discepolo su questa ammissione, l'adorazione raddoppiata, si danno colpi che li trasformano in quello che può essere. In un primo momento l'inganno comune, correvano, uno da un mondo animale, l'altra ad un se stesso ribattuta uno schiavo. "" Volevano a ridere senza senso, sta torturando una bugia, ma, non avendo altra via di presentarsi come l'apoteosi, hanno perso di vista il loro reciproco desiderio di morte e beatamente apprezzato l' riposare. "Una chiave di lettura di questi cambiamenti addizione preziose che riflettono cambiamenti reali dell'autore. Se la più importante è, naturalmente, la scelta della prima persona nelle versioni successive, alcune varianti lessicali sono anche molto significativo. Così: «Offro lo spettacolo dei miei vizi" nel manoscritto e dattiloscritto 1935 diventa: "Offro lo spettacolo dei miei errori" nella versione pubblicata della stessa nel 1947 "Questo è un estratto dal discorso. la terza città "diventa" Questo è un estratto del discorso sul terzo allo Stato terzo "; "Un rumore (...) è stato un colpo tutta la città" diventa "è stato un colpo tutte le persone" e "... su un ponte di onomatopea" diventa "... un farneticante gateway." Infine, si tratta di una Blanchot lirica che rivela questa "improvvisa chiamata del linguaggio": "Aveva i capelli appendere queste ampie ali di velluto sono una promessa di trasformazione." "... Quando il sole getta la sua luce splende contro gli specchi ovunque, si fermò sopra la spianata e udì questa voce, privato misteriosamente le vocali e le consonanti, che annuncia la condivisione degli spazi" "Esclamazioni di: la folla è venuto e ha portato chiede un disagio immenso. "" Ha funzionato sul libro e morse i denti, come se avesse fatto insensibile, nonostante l'amarezza di quelle vecchie pagine. ". Col senno di poi Blanchot esitate a commentare, tuttavia, che questo testo prevede la terza volta e si prese cura di rivedere ancora una volta, a 50 anni dalla sua prima release. Tuttavia, porta alcuni pezzi di spiegazioni che rivelano l'importanza di questa piccola storia nella vita e l'opera di uno dei più misteriosi scrittori del ventesimo secolo: "L'ultima parola deve raccontare linea principale, come aventi invece, il naufragio totale, la narrazione in sé non può quindi essere conservato, e impossibile o assurdo, a meno che non dovrebbe pretendere profetico, annunciando un futuro in passato già lì o dicendo che ci sempre quando non c'è niente: o non portare nulla ed evitare l'annientamento che non può sfuggire al suo processo a lungo termine che viene rimasticare e l'eternità.

        Union of South Africa. Their Natural and Industrial Resources.

      1943 - Nottingham: Printed by Thomas Forman & Sons Ltd, c.1943. Colour lithographic map. Sheet 490 x 745mm. Folded as issued. A propaganda map of South Africa, showing how the industry and agriculture of the continent was helping the war effort. Little vignettes mark the cattle, sheep, grain and wood regions, and icons note the various types of mining. The map is decorated with a coat of arms, a large compass rose, a flagpole and a map showing the continent of Africa. A text box reads: 'South Africa is to-day an arsenal and repair base for the Armies of the United Nations. Known originally as an agricultural and pastoral country and as a producer of gold and diamonds, the Union has so accelerated her industrial production that in four years of war it has reached a figure which could not have been attained in peace-time in less than 25 years. The industries which have developed under the stress of war will form the basis of peace-time manufacture when hostilities have ceased'. This map continues a series of maps of Commonwealth countries published during the Second World War. Most were signed by Leslie MacDonald Gill; the artist here is unknown. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Tree Grows In Brooklyn.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1943. First edition of the author's classic first novel. Octavo, original green cloth. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Sincerely, Betty Smith Brooklyn, N.Y." An excellent example in a near fine first issue dust jacket with light rubbing and wear to the spine and extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice copy of a novel rarely encountered signed. "Forty years before Holden Caulfield abandoned Pencey Prep to begin his ill-fated Manhattan odyssey, Francie Nolan struggled to obtain an education in the teeming tenement neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Francie grows up nurtured by the loving gallantries of her father, a singing waiter who drinks too much, and the rigorous austerities practiced by her brave mother, a janitress who reads to her children each night from the complete plays of Shakespeare and the 'Protestant Bible'. The book was an instant best-seller, with 300,000 copies purchased in the first six weeks. Writing in the Yale review, Orville Prescott praised A Tree Grows in Brooklyn as a 'rich and rare example of regional local color writing, filled to the scuppers with Brooklynese, Brooklyn folk-ways and Brooklyn atmosphere" (New York Public Library Books of the Century, 207).

      New York: Duell,Sloan, and Pearce, 1943. First Edition, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY STEGNER "For Jinny ...Wally". Jinny was a very personal friend of many years. She and Stegner remained in touch with one another and were close for decades. 8vo, publisher’s original rust boards, the spine lettered in gilt, in the original dustjacket. 515 pp. A fine copy but for some subtle mellowing or evidence of age to the spine tips and wear to the jacket. The jacket does have some significant chipping to the spine panel and some edgewear. A FIRST EDITION PRESENTATION COPY OF THIS VERY IMPORTANT STEGNER TITLE. THE RECIPIENT WAS A PERSONAL FRIEND OF THE AUTHOR'S FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. In every sense this is a "big" book. It was the author's big book, it was a big source book for the author's ongoing writing. It is big in the sweep of its canvas through the developing West from Nevada to Saskatchewan. It is big in its characters who, come hell and high water, never abandoned their pursuit of fat lands beyond the next range. And it is biggest of all perhaps in the stature of the major American novelist which it reveals.

        Historia Cuculi Canori

      1943-1949 1943 - Highly unusual, handsome manuscript of the scientific data, findings and proceedings of a small ornithology club dedicated to the collection and study of cuckoo eggs, enlivened with sixteen original watercolors of cuckoos, club members, etc. Folio, 39.5 by 29 cm. 171 leaves. (First part unpaginated, followed by 117 pp.) The club was called the Cuculus Canorus Club and was formed in 1943, with four members -- Gordon and Saxon Pagesmith and Douglas and Walter Kemp. A stated objective of the club was to present the collection it would be assembling to the Natural History Museum, and in fact, Gordon Pagesmith did make a significant contribution of bird eggs to that museum, separate from the club's collection. The club ended up collecting about 83 clutches of eggs of cuckoos and the host birds. Besides the diligent compilation of scientific data presented in the text, a source of interest is this club's eccentric rules and proceedings. One of the most entertaining watercolors is of a dinner of the club members, in which they are caricatured. This is in addition to the charming colorful portraits of the birds, their eggs, and various locations. The front cover states it is Vol. 1. Vol. 2 is included, and this manuscript is complete. Housed in a custom half red morocco box. Heavy soiling of the front cover, and some lighter soiling on just a few other leaves. Mostly clean. The manuscript's leaves are loose, with some leaves collected into loose gatherings. A few creases along the edges.

        Misfortunes of the Immortals.

      New York: the Black Sun Press,, March 1943. Translated by Hugh Chisholm. Quarto. Original pale green boards, spine and front cover lettered in black, large design by Ernst on front cover. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout, printed on both yellow and pink wove paper. The boards themselves only a little faded and rubbed at the corners, leaves browned and somewhat brittle around the margins with small chips to the occasional fore-edge, nonetheless a sound copy in good condition, with the jacket dust soiled and chipped around the extremities. First edition thus, presentation copy to Betty Parsons, limited edition of 610 copies (of which one of 110 copies were specially bound and signed by Ernst). This copy of the unsigned edition, which survives in the very scarce and fragile dust jacket, is rendered superior by being inscribed on the title page by Max Ernst to the prominent New York artist and gallerist Betty Parsons (1900-1982). From 1940 Parsons managed a contemporary art gallery in the Wakefield Bookshop,k 64 East 55th Street, using her full curatorial control to exhibit the likes of Joseph Cornell. From 1944, she moved to managed the contemporary art division of Mortimer Brandt's gallery. Then in 1946 she opened her own eponymous gallery 15 East 57th Street, Manhattan, exhibiting twelve shows a season. After Peggy Guggenheim had closed her gallery and returned to Europe in 1947, Parsons was then the only dealer willing to represent avant-garde American artists, showing the work of Abstract Expressionists such as Mark Rothko. This first English edition of Ernest & Eluard's Les malheurs des immortels (Paris 19222) was printed by the Black Sun Press and designed by Caresse Crosby, with the English translation set above the original French in the letterpress. It is one of the key works of surrealism, and the association connecting the production to New York's leading Abstract Expressionist gallerist is compelling.
