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

      S.n.. 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 But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished.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 patches. "" I am worried, he said. I was wrong to leave earlier this house when I get home, surrounded by torches are extinguished one by one. What will I find now? How to live without I guideline? Can you tell me anything? "" Some children, head blackened coal, removed the sand in which they were buried, and trying to achieve with small white stones they drew from their pocket, they reviled in their incomprehensible language. "" Taking advantage of the lull, dogs out of their hole, as if they had been secretly excited by a master, they rushed to the sleeper by pulling on their links. They tried to right, left, then discovering it under the covers, they are slipped badly, small first, then the big dog, like a vicious bunch of kids. "" The intoxication of being together having lost younger pushed them into their own home as if she had ceased to be theirs, and they threw screams waking intruders from their homes. "But this manuscript provides the exegete especially demonstrative few passages that provide clarification on the meaning of the story:" Until is not an indifferent manner to the past and the future. If it is intended to extend a veil over what approach, if a link between, by mutual repulsion, separate time moments it appears from something, something else is not shown, however, that such limit. "" They whom nothing was forbidden to speak and who knew, behaved as if their knowledge had been to break with the language. "" The disciple on this admission, redoubled adoration, give themselves shots that change them into what they can be. At first common deception, they ran, one to an animal world, the other to a riveted himself a slave. "" They wanted to laugh again nonsense, is torturing a lie, but, having no other way to stand as the apotheosis, they lost sight of their mutual desire for death and blissfully enjoyed the rest. "A key reading these valuable addition changes that reflect real shifts of the author. If the most important is, of course, the choice of the first person in later versions, some lexical variations are also very significant. Thus: "I offer the spectacle of my vices" in the manuscript and typescript 1935 becomes: "I offer the spectacle of my mistakes" in the published version of the same in 1947. "This is an extract from the speech the third city "becomes" This is an excerpt of the speech on the third on the third State "; "A noise (...) was one stroke the whole town" becomes "was one stroke all the people" and "... on a deck of onomatopoeia" becomes "... a gateway ranting." Finally, it is a lyrical Blanchot that reveals this "abrupt call of language": "She had her hair hanging these broad wings velvet are a promise of transformation." "... When the sun casting its light shining against the mirrors everywhere, stopped above the esplanade and heard this loud voice, private mysteriously vowels and consonants, which announces the sharing of spaces" "Shouts of the crowd came and brought calls for an immense distress. "" He ran on the book and bit his teeth, as if he had made insensitive despite the bitterness of those old pages. ". In hindsight Blanchot hesitate to comment, however, that this text provides for the third time and he took care to revise again, 50 years after its first release. However, it brings some bits of explanations that reveal the importance of this little story in the life and work of one of the most mysterious writers of the twentieth century: "The last word has to tell main line, as having instead, the total wreck, the narrative itself can not therefore be preserved, and impossible or absurd, unless he should claim prophetic, heralding a future in the past already there or saying there always when there is nothing: either there wearing nothing and prevent the annihilation that it can not escape its long-term process which is rehashing and eternity. " S.n. s.l. s.d. (1943) 18,5x41cm

        Operation Citadel: The South Vol 1 The South The Battle in the South [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Jean Restayn N Moller Nicole Restayn

      Fedorowicz (J.J.),Canada, 1943. Das Buch zur Operation Zitadelle! "Citadel" was the code name designated for the German offensive at Kursk-Orel in July, 1943. This large "photo album" is actually the first of three publications. It will be followed by a similar book dealing with the battles in the northern sector and a text history of the battles. This review will consider Operation "Citadel" as a reference for modelers. Numerous black and white photographs, complemented by the color artwork, illustrate various armored vehicles in service with soldiers of the 3rd, 6th, 7th, 11th Panzer Divisions; Panzergrenadier Division Grossdeutschland, Panzer Brigade 10; Stug Battallions 911,228,905 and 1st, 2nd and 3rd SS Panzergrenadier Divisions. A few photographs and four pages of color illustrations are devoted to Soviet equipment, often shown destroyed or abandoned. A section is devoted to the T34s rebuilt and employed by Das Reich and photographs illustrate T34s in service with 6th Panzer Division. German armor modelers will find ample inspiration for dozens of modeling projects. The coded division insignia are shown on three color pages. Camouflage and markings information is mostly clear and well presented. Those with an aversion to zimmerit will enjoy this period as the authors state "impossible for a tank with a coating of Zimmerit anti-magnetic paste to appear in the battle of Kursk." A number of "new" photographs do appear. More familiar photos are more accurately captioned; for the most part. Whenever possible the authors provide unit,date and location. Presentation of the photographs range from double page spreads to five or six per page, with most two per page. A few of the photographs have been printed in better resolution elsewhere, but overall the printing is well done. As indicated by the title, this publication takes the "German" point of view regarding the Kursk campaign. The authors usually do not completely identify the vehicle by type. Generally Panzer IIIs and Panzer IVs,etc. are not further described. Readers will have to determine if they are looking at a Pz. III Ausf.J, L or M; likewise with Pz IV Ausf. G or H. Most Mark IVs shown in the photographs are Ausf. G, or at least G standard,while few photos clearly depict Mk IV Ausf H. Several color illustrations describe Mark IV as Ausf. H, although corresponding black and white photos do not support the statement. A few photos show a white or light colored recognition square, described as a unit device; there is no discussion as to whether this system may have been more widespread or not. Color illustrations include a Sdkfz. 250 Neu and a Sdkfz. 251 Ausf. D. While some of these appeared later in "Kursk" markings, their presence in July, 1943 may be questionable. (Production of Sdkfz. 251 Ausf. D did not begin until September and the Sdkfz. 250 in October) No index is provided, which is a pity as a work of this size, would welcome its inclusion. The cost of this book will be a deterrent to many potential buyers. Overall, this publication should be very usefull to German armor modellers.

        Substantial Autograph Letter Signed Twice, 2pp on one sheet of USO stationery while onboard Transport Vessel SS Sea Porpoise, June 10, 1944. With signed transmittal envelope

      Guthrie writes to his music producer Moses Asch aboard the Merchant Marine vessel SS Sea Porpoise four days after the D-Day invasion at Normandy by the Allied forces. Rich in content about music and recording, in part, "... a big poker game is going and Cisco [Houston, singer-song writer] is fifty ahead. He is thinking of giving up the guitar and to be a slick finger gambler. Our guitars, fiddles, mandolins are fine, somewhat primed with sea water, yet they make noise. It is similar to music. " He notes the significance of D-Day and expresses optimism about the end of World War II. "Invasion Day was the best news in many years but there are even bigger days coming as we close in on Berlin...." He changes direction back to music and asks Asch about the recording business. "How's things with the records? I suppose you have enough on hand...check them very carefully and criticize them pretty close Me, I think I've got some of our nation's best where Sonny [Terry, blues and folk musician known for his blues harmonica] is there. Lots of musicians could do them better but they haven't yet. I feel we should do some ten and fifteen minute records to dish out to radio stations...If no dough at least it will be publicity...When albums or single records are ready for release I'll be glad to write some piece which I will leave with you...I would travel a half a day if need be to hear one of our records on a juke box. But hoping of course a feller won't have to travel so far...Hel, the last place on earth I expected our records to sell was upper New York State...How goes things with Burl? [likely Burl Ives, folk singer and actor]. Have you done his album a ninth time yet? How goes the world with my chief critic Mr. Tom Glazer? [folk singer and song writer]. I like Tom. I got off wrong that night when we argued. I was too tired to sing and didn't want to preach...We've found several good singers and guitar pickers...I'd still like to meet that Railroad worker that sings like Jimmy Rogers [country singer and yodeler]..." Guthrie ends noting that he has to write to his wife and baby. Rare in content on music, the recording business and contemporary folk singers. Condition: Damp stain along one fold on text on both sides, writing is legible; envelope also bears damp stain and easily legible. To avoid being drafted into the Army as a soldier, Woody Guthrie, along with his friends and fellow folk musicians Cisco Houston and Jimmy Longhi, joined the Merchant Marines in 1943. In 1944, they were aboard the Sea Porpoise which took troops across the Atlantic for the D-Day Invasion. The ship was torpedoed off Utah Beach on July 5, 1944, but was able to get to Britain to be repaired. Guthrie returned to the U.S. later in July of 1944. [See: Ronald D. Cohen, Woody Guthrie: Writing America's Song.] Guthrie writes, in this letter, "Invasion Day was the best news in many years…." The postmark and address on the letter require some explanation. This letter is postmarked Belfast, 15 June 1944. After D-Day the ship was sent to Newcastle for repair, but before D-Day the ship was in Liverpool, then Belfast before heading down to Normandy for the invasion. This letter was written and sent after the invasion, but nevertheless postmarked Belfast.   Wikipedia reports that Guthrie married and moved to Mermaid Avenue after his discharge in 1945 from the US Army, but this 1944 letter notes a return address of Mermaid Avenue in Coney Island, clearly earlier. His wife might have been there before his arrival home, and that is where he planned to live upon his return.   While Guthrie was home in New York at one point during his time in the Merchant Marines, he met Moses Asch, to whom he wrote our letter. According to Karen Mueller Coombs in her Woody Guthrie: America's Folk singer, "Beginning on April 16, 1944, Woody - joined off and on by Cisco Houston, Sonny Terry, Leadbelly, and Alan Lomax's sister, Bess - recorded one hundred thirty-two songs for Asch. During the last session, Woody threw in This Land Is Your Land, probably the first time he had sung it since writing it in his New York hotel room four years earlier."   Guthrie writes this letter to Moses Asch, and to all in the studio starting his letter, "Hello folks," a short time after meeting them and recording with them. All of the people he mentions in the letter, Sonny Terry, Burl Ives, Tom Glazer, each recorded with Asch. Guthrie collaborated with many of them on recordings for Asch and his Folkways Records (Asch from 1939-1947, then Folkways). He recorded with Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee on a number of songs as well as Cisco Houston alone and with Sonny Terry.   Burl Ives sang with the Almanac Players at times and in 1944 recorded with Asch, but later went to Decca and Columbia. The Almanac Players were a loose knit group who performed anti-fascist and folk songs in New York. All of these people and more performed at various times with the Almanac Players, including Tom Glazer.

        THE LOITERERS

      MANUSCRIPT ILLUSTRATED NOVEL "THE LOITERERS" . BOGUE, Ida M. [1886-1972] Manuscript novel with watercolour illustrations by the author. Pp [xxii],824 written in a tidy 1940's "printed" hand in blue ink. Thirty watercolour illustrations plus manuscript map frontispiece with a further seemingly unrelated scraper-board picture.Approx 26cm. x 21 cm. Bound by the author in natural linen, decorated and lettered. Recently re-cased with new endpapers, retaining the original covers.The illustrations are very well done, and are typical of the period. The story revolves around two boys and their adventures- subtitled " a light-hearted Chronicle".Also included as an illustration leaf are five extremely rare Chinese Washerwomen's labels dating from the 1880's and originating in Hongkong, Shanghai, and Foochow. Ida M Bogue was born to William and Mary Bogue in 1886 in Walthamstow Essex .During the 1901 UK Census she was 15 years old and lived in Weymouth and Melcombe Regis, Dorset. She worked as a teacher and artist, with an interest in miniature painting, exhibiting at Weymouth Art exhibitions. She spent much of her life painting from nature, focusing on the Weymouth Bay and the surrounding Dorset villages. She was a spinster who had spent much of her adult life caring for elderly parents and in her latter years led a solitary life and became blind. Intriguingly another literary work of hers "Child Hazel" appeared on the BBC "Antiques Road Show" with her descendants stating that they wished to publish the work. She made up the story, which she described as "An idyll of the nature world", hand lettered it, and painted a series of watercolours as colour plates, as in this work, also making the binding. In her will she left it to her descendants, among them her great-niece Fiona Duncan, who took it along to Antiques Roadshow.We have seen prints of some of the illustrations for sale. "The Loiterers" is an astonishing piece of work , with the immaculately lettered text and extremely accomplished illustrations evoking a more innocent age.That the book has survived at all is unusual, but to have survived in such excellent condition is exceptional. The binding is aged and evocative-and now stable and secure. There is some light foxing throughout, but this does not detract greatly from the overall impact of the book.A unique item.

        The Little Prince

      New York, Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. Hardback first edition and first impression. A very good copy. The boards have a little bumping and edge wear, endpapers a little toned, some light foxing to the foreedge. The jacket has an area of loss to the lower edge, and a chip to the top edge, one large tear to the top. Similar wear to the spine tips, and similar to the rear of the jacket. Flaps in good shape. One of the best known works of Children's literature. It is the fourth most translated book in the world, having been translated into 250 languages. A wonderful story with a history almost as intriguing as the novella itself. It's hard to stress the importance of the book; Britain had Alice in Wonderland, America had The Wizard of Oz, France had The Little Prince. A true highlight of book collecting.

        The German National Registration System

      [Lansdowne, Pa]: Published by the author, 1943. First edition. Softcover. g- to vg. Quarto. [4], 74 leaves. Original printed wrappers. In this Staff study published only for OMGUS (the Office of Military Government, United States), Robert Kempner* considers it likely that the condition of German society immediately after the upcoming collapse of the Nazi regime would be chaotic enough to require the maintenance of a modified version of what he terms the 'National Police Registration," the Nazi centralized and police-operated 'Reichsmeldeordnung' system**. Kempner's conclusions were to become the basis of occupation policy on this issue throughout the rest of the 1940s. Minor age-toning and sporadic creasing along edges of covers. Some moderate abrasion along foredge of front wrap and the first 24 leaves (not affecting text), as they were pulled out from the book block. The remaining leaves are all stapled together, along with the back cover. Wrappers in overall good- to good, interior in good+ to very good condition. * Robert Kempner (1899-1993) was a German-born American lawyer. After the Nazi rise to power in 1933, Hermann Goering fired Kempner from his position because of his anti-Nazi activities. He was then arrested and held for two months in a concentration camp after being accused of leaking information about Germany's rearmament, activities forbidden under the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles. In 1935, Wilhelm Frick, then the Interior Minister, used Kempner's Jewish background to revoke his German citizenship. Kempner was then expelled from Germany. He taught law for a few years in Italy before immigrating to the United States. After World War II Kempner returned to Germany, the land of his birth, to serve as assistant US chief counsel during the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. In a spectacular reversal of fortune, Kempner would prosecute two of his former superiors and persecutors - Hermann Goering and Wilhelm Frick. ** The 'Reichsmeldeordnung' system administered the following registers:A. Register of Persons (Melderegister)B. Register of Buildings (Hausregister)C. People's Card Index (Volkskartei)D. Alien Card Index (Auslaenderkartei).

        Scrapbook of Soldier's WWII Service in the Persian Gulf Command. Tehran and other places, 1943-1946.

      1943. Folio (312 x 324 mm). Green 1940s photo album. 38 pp. on 20 leaves. Includes 48 gelatin silver b/w photographs of mid-1940s Iran stored within two tipped-in envelopes. Intriguing mixed-media scrapbook of W. W. Boger (1915-90), a WWII soldier stationed for the majority of his service with the Persian Gulf Command, Iran. The album was probably assembled by his wife, Louise, during and/or after the war. Unlike many similar war service albums with their training photos, personal documents, correspondence and memorabilia, this scrapbook is unique in that it boasts a remarkable collection of fourty-eight original photographs of Iran during the end and immediate aftermath of the War. The snapshots and souvenir photos (some apparently removed from an earlier scrapbook) include the Shah and his wife, numerous specimens of architecture, street scenes and children, bazaars, executions (one of two body-less heads; the other notes on reverse: "A couple of thieves they just finished shooting"), a photo of a woman nursing an older child on the street ("Chow time"), etc. (most captioned on reverse, some not well legible). Also present are five mounted photos of the US hospital, base, etc.; a Dec. 1945 Time magazine cover story on the Shah; and a mimeo 27-page soldier's guide to Iran. The typescript of an original, unpublished poem (very likely by Boger himself) describes the disillusionment of the U.S. servicemen in the land of a Thousand and One Nights: "[...] Toilets know no water, sewers there are none, / Streets, mud holes, and offal that stinks in the midday sun. / Body sores and blindness, limbs twisted, what a sight / To see these helpless people asleep, on sidewalks cold at night. / [...] The women and the donkeys share in all the labors, / While their lazy, useless men-folks go calling on the neighbors. / You walk around from morn to night and many sights you see, / But the funniest one you gaze upon is the men who squat to pee. / If toilets were built in the thousands, in this very a[n]cient land, / The natives would use them to sleep in, they still prefer the sand. [G]raft and corruption, dysentery and smells / Are constantly beside you, no matter where one dwells [...]". - The Persian Gulf Command was a relatively small station; its establishment marked the beginning of formal modern U.S. military involvement in the Middle East. The command was originally founded to assist both British and Russian forces in maintaining supply lines, but also - and perhaps more importantly - to secure oil fields from both Germany itself and Persian Axis sympathizers within Iran. It also served as host to several important U.S. military hospitals. Boger, a Montana native, was sent to Iran after completing his training as a medic at Fort Douglas, UT, and Fort Barkeley, TX. He was assigned to 256th Station Hospital in Ahwaz, the first U.S. Hospital in the Persian Gulf theatre. Additional scrapbook material includes censored letters, telegrams, and V-Mail home, copies of Boger's orders and life insurance policy, uniform patches, newspaper clippings, currency from numerous countries, Iranian bottle labels, etc.

        The Golden Carpet. (London), the Golden Cockerell Press, (1943).

      1943. Large 4to. 128 pp. With a portrait frontispiece. Original green half calf and cream cloth boards. Includes: Autograph letter signed. No place, 29 June 1943. 8vo. 2 pp. Additional material. First edition. An account of the British Army's 1941 campaign in the Middle East, advancing from the Mediterranean to Baghdad. Published during the ongoing war, with several poetic pieces about the Middle East appended. Number 45 of 500 copies printed on Arnold's mould-made paper (nos. 1-30 of which were bound in full morocco). Signed and inscribed by the author to the Anglo-Armenian poet Ernest Altounyan: "for Altounyan / the conversations are resumed (on paper), with the author's sincere friendship / Somerset de Clair / 21 June 1943". Tipped in is a 2-page ALS from the author to Altounyan: "Let me lay the Golden Carpet before you. I have used you in the preface as a link between the Levant fighting in this war and the Revolt in the Desert [...]". He discusses some "security cuts" made to the ms. before publication, "such as the fact that [...] Glubb had only 150 men with him in the Desert Patrol although he was so much feared by the Iraqis." - Altounyan, based in Syria, wrote "Ornament of Honour" in 1937 addressed to T. E. Lawrence, written in Aleppo after Lawrence's death. He had known Lawrence for a long time and wrote the poem as a memorial embodying everything he believed to be their common philosophy of life. Of Altounyan, Lawrence wrote (in a letter to Robert Graves): "I think Frederick Manning, and an Armenian called Altounyan and E. M. Forster are three I most care for since Hogarth died." - Laid in is an autograph letter signed (21 April 1945, 1 p.) to Altounyan from Col. Franklin Lushington, author of "Yeoman Service: A Short History of the Kent Yeomanry 1939-1945", returning the volume with thanks. - Spine sunned; boards somewhat fingerstained; some browning to de Chair's ALS, otherwise in fine condition.

        Photographs: 40 M-M M2 Gun Carriage. Exhibit 3 (title from cover)

      Album of 63 linen-backed photographs by J.H. Schaefer & Son in Baltimore, Maryland, depicting scenes of wartime production needs being fulfilled mostly by women and African-American machinists, at the Bartlett Hayward munitions factory, specifically the production line for the M2 anti-aircraft gun including milling machines, preparation of the chassis, drilling, and assembly of the carriages, along with photographs of blueprints and commercial photographs of Koppers machine parts, possibly assembled for sales purposes. Each photograph with typed label to verso identifying date, location, and part and production details, along with photographer's stamp. Photographs 8" x 9-3/4", album oblong 8vo. Cloth boards, title stamped to cover, "1943" hand-written in black in on spine. Baltimore (Koppers Company/Barlett Hayward Division) n.d. (circa 1943). The Bartlett-Hayward Company was started in 1840 as Hayward and Company and was founded by three stove manufacturers, including George Hayward. Not long after, Thomas Bartlett was added to the company and it was renamed Bartlett-Hayward. During the 19th and 20th centuries Bartlett-Hayward was a leading manufacturer nationwide, expanding into foundry, machinery, engineering, and architectural ironwork, among other fields. During World War I, regular production lines were shut down to make shrapnel shells for the war effort, a change in business that Barlett-Hayward approached with enthusiasm. After merging with the Pittsburgh-based Koppers Company in 1936, production again came to a halt during WWII and the firm became a main government supplier, producing the 40 MM M2 anti-aircraft gun carriage used by most of the Allies. By the end of the war, more than 2270 carriages had been produced in the factory. The industrial boom resulted in women and African-Americans being brought into the workforce in huge numbers, especially in Baltimore. As of September 2016, WorldCat does not show any listings for this album.

        Gedichte des deutschen Barock (= Insel-Bücherei Nr. 313).

      Insel, Leipzig 1943 - 81 S. Orig.-Pappband. "Die blaue Mauritius der Insel-Bücherei" (Matke). "Dieses Inselbändchen ist nicht nur wegen seines einmaligen Einbandes eine Kuriosität. Inselbändchen wurden während des Krieges nur broschiert herausgebracht. Lediglich ausnahmsweise erhielt der Verlag bei einigen Titeln die kriegswirtschaftliche Genehmigung, eine kleine Binderate in Pappbändchen fest binden zu lassen. Die fest gebundene erste Binderate der einzigen Auflage der Barockgedichte wurde nach Abschluß der Bindearbeiten im November 1943 an die Buchgroßhandlung Fleischer in Leipzig ausgeliefert. Diese führte noch am gleichen Tag die von Leipziger Buchhändlern vorliegenden Bestellungen aus. Bei einem Bombenangriff in der darauffolgenden Nacht sind die Bestände in der Buchgroßhandlung von Fleischer und auch in vielen Leipziger Buchhandlungen verlorengegangen. Mit der Zerstörung dieses Inselbändchens ist auch das hierfür verwendete Überzugspapier restlos verlorengegangen. Das hell-sienabraune Kleisterpapier mit senkrechten Blüten- und Tannennadel-Borten in Chamois kommt nie wieder vor" (Gerd Plantener in: Imprimatur NF, Bd. IX (1980), S. 209f.). Heute sind - laut Jenne - lediglich ca. 25 Exemplare bekannt, die der Vernichtung entgangen sind. Unser Exemplar ist bis auf geringe Bereibungen der Gelenke und der Deckelkanten sowie eine leichte Bräunung des Rückenschildchens nahezu makellos. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        1940's Radio Host Autograph Album Signed by Dozens

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. An interesting and attractive album of warm personal inscriptions and autograph signatures assembled in the 1940s by Dick Gilbert, a DJ on Arizona radio station KTYL who hosted on his show a veritable who's-who of popular music of the era. The leather album, embossed with Gilbert's name, contains signatures and personal inscriptions from jazz musicians, bandleaders, singers, actors, and Latin stars including Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Gene Krupa, the Andrews Sisters, Ed Sullivan, Tito Guizar, Cab Calloway, Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, Roy Rogers (and Trigger!) and many more. Most of the stars have written notes of thanks to Gilbert, some even adding sketches (the first page of the album has an amusing self-portrait caricature by Xavier Cugat). Frank Sinatra writes "It's kinda hard to think of the proper words to show my gratitude - so I'll just say thanx Dick - and you'll know what I mean," dated January 1943, and Krupa inscribes "To Dick - Thankz Ten Million For All The Fine Plugs." Included with the album in its original box are four brightly colored posters from Gilbert's show, each advertising a new record of the late 1940's and featuring a great caricature of Gilbert with a pile of records. Also included is a further unidentified signature on a brochure from an Arizona golf course.<br>The album, in very fine condition with decorative stamped endpapers, upper forË?edge in gilt and embossed leather cover, 6.5 x 8.75 inches (17.7 x 22.5 cm); posters have been trimmed to 14 x 8.5 inches (35.4 x 21.5 cm).<br>The signatures include: Xavier Cugat (with caricature); Carmen Cavallaro; Frank Sinatra; Duke Ellington; Larry Adler (with caricature of himself playing harmonica); Connee Boswell; Abe Lyman; Jimmy Dorsey; Joan Edwards; Bob Crosby; Dick Todd; Enrique Madriguera; Patricia Gilmore (a singer with Enrique Madriguera's orchestra); Bea Wain; Laverne, Maxine, and Patricia Andrews (the complete Andrews Sisters) on one page; Tito Guizar (two signatures); Johnny Long; Ed Sullivan; Allan Jones; Russ Morgan; Ted Fiorito; Frankie Carle; Vaughn Monroe; Lina Romay; Charlie Spivak; Cab Calloway; Eddie Howard; Les Brown; Gene Krupa; Johnnie Johnston; Andy Russell; Jo Stafford; Guy Lombardo; Louis Jordan; Erskine Hawkins; Tommy Dorsey; Roy Rogers & Trigger.

Full green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, titles gilt to spines, gilt edge-roll, single fillet gilt to the turn-ins, top edges gilt, the others uncut. In the white linen slipcase as issued. Spine sunned, board edges chipped and worn to the board in places, but overall very good. Photogravure portrait frontispiece. First edition, each in a signed edition limited to 300 copies of which just 30 were in the full morocco binding as here, copy 22. Golden Carpet is signed at the front of the volume. Somerset de Chair was Intelligence Officer with "Kingcol", a Flying Column of less than 1,500 men under the Command of Brigadier General 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 30th 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".

Betty Smith's coming-of-age novel set in turn-of-the-century New York was an immediate bestseller, gaining enormous popularity among front line US servicemen via an Armed Services Edition produced in a huge numbers: "Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was perhaps the most popular ASE of them all. It provided such a vivid account of childhood that many men felt as though Smith were writing about theirs" (Molly Guptill Manning, When Books Went to War: the stories that helped us win World War II, 2014, p. 105).

        Pilote de guerre

      Sans, Editions de la Maison Française, 1943 In-8 (18,5cm x 13cm) de 254pp. Broché, à couverture imprimée, sous un emboîtage réalisé par Julie NADOT illustré d'une reproduction du dessin original sur le premier plat. Première édition autorisée. Exceptionnel exemplaire comportant sur le faux-titre un dessin original représentant le petit prince ainsi qu'un envoi autographe signé à Pierre Douzé : "Pour Pierre Douzé et madame Pierre Douzé. (Pardon, Pierre Douzé s'est cité le premier !) Avec ma vieille amitié pour lui en le groupe 2/33 (et si Pierre Douzé est un type bien c'est parce qu'il fait parti du groupe 2/33). Avec ma vieille amitié. [Signature]". Très bel exemplaire, étui en parfait état, ouvrage en bel état. LE GROUPE 2/33 (1939-1940) Dans les jours qui suivent la déclaration de guerre de la France à l'Allemagne le 3 septembre 1939, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry est mobilisé. Il est affecté à la base de Toulouse-Francazal dans une unité de bombardiers où il doit suivre des cours de formation. Cette situation à l'arrière lui déplaît : il veut voler. Volontaire pour la chasse, il est cependant refusé à la visite médicale en octobre 1939. Fin novembre, malgré ses 39 ans et son état de santé, il obtient enfin d'être affecté au 2/33, le groupe de reconnaissance basé à Orconte (dans la Marne) qui vole sur une quinzaine de Potez 63. C'est dans la vieille ferme, reconvertie en PC, que Saint-Exupéry retrouve le 2 décembre 1939 l'escadrille La Hache à Orconte. Le capitaine Antoine de Saint-Exupéry est immédiatement mis dans le bain par le lieutenant Gavoille, chargé de son instruction qui dira : « Bien que n'ayant pas l'expérience des avions modernes, Saint-Exupéry s'adapte très facilement au Potez 63-7 ». Ce mois de décembre 1939 est particulièrement vigoureux. Les sorties sont rares et réfrigérantes : Saint-Exupéry vole à 10 000 mètres par moins 51 degrés dans des combinaisons chauffantes. Le 18 janvier 1940, le 2 /33 est transféré à Monceau-le-Waast et est confié au commandement d'Henri Alias. Les mois suivants, la situation de Saint-Exupéry est plus délicate et il doit plaider pour son maintien dans le groupe 2 /33. Son âge et ses erreurs de pilotage jouent contre lui. Cependant, ses arguments convainquent et pendant tout le mois de mars il essaye et convoie les nouveaux Bloch 174 qui sortent des chaînes. La guerre éclair se poursuit et le 2 /33 doit constater la progression allemande dans les Ardennes. Le 10 mai 1940 les troupes allemandes attaquent la Belgique. Presque tous les pilotes sont en permission ! Saint-Exupéry rejoint son unité qui, du Bourget (17-21 mai 1940), puis d'Orly (21 mai 1940) et enfin de Nangis ( 3-10 juin 1940) multiplie les reconnaissances au-dessus d'Arras, d'Amiens, de Péronne, de Soissons, de Château-Thierry. Ces missions lui offrent la trame de son livre Pilote de Flight to Arras. Mi-juin 1940, le capitaine Alias fait partir ses escadrilles vers l'Afrique du Nord. Saint-Exupéry convoie un Farman et, via Perpignan, rejoint Oran et Alger. Il poursuit vers Mers et Kébir où il se trouve le 3 juillet 1940 lorsque la Royal Navy attaque la flotte française. Démobilisé le 4 août 1940, Saint-Exupéry embarque pour rejoindre la France. Et le 21 décembre 1940, il part en exil aux Etats-Unis.

De 1937 à 1946, il occupe la chaire de littérature française à l'Université de Bâle. Dès 1942, Albert Béguin crée et dirige les Cahiers du Rhône (la Baconnière). Il réussit ainsi, en publiant des uvres de Charles Péguy, Louis Aragon, Paul Eluard Pierre Emmanuel, Loys Masson, Pierre Jean Jouve, Guy Lévis Mano, Jean Cayrol ou Jules Supervielle, à soutenir, pendant la guerre, la lutte des écrivains français pour les valeurs de la France au cur de l'Europe menacée. Il collabore à d'autres publications suisses résistantes, comme la collection Le Cri de la France (Librairie de lUniversité de Fribourg) où il publie sa célèbre traduction de la Quête du Graal. En 1946, il retourne à Paris. À la mort d'Emmanuel Mounier en 1950, il occupe jusqu'à sa mort la direction de la revue Esprit.
