        FOREVER AMBER

      1944 - WINSOR, Kathleen. FOREVER AMBER. NY: The Macmillan Company, 1944. 8vo., green cloth in dust jacket; 972 pages. First Edition, first printing (so stated). Adapted into a successful 1948 movie, the 972-page novel was edited down to one-fifth of the manuscript Winsor originally presented to the publisher. Condemned for blatant sexual references, 14 states banned the book as pornography. Despite its ban, "Forever Amber" was the best-selling U.S. novel of the 1940s, selling more than 100,000 copies in its first week of release and eventually selling more than three million. Signed by Winsor on verso of the front endpaper. I have noted two variant dust jackets but I have little information to offer about them. This dust jacket, which is uncommonly fragile, is entirely printed in black- both text & the photograph on the rear cover. It is my experience that this is the more common dust jacket (the other is entirely printed in blue) but, if it is the earliest one, I do not know. Very Good (little wear covers; contents clean & tight); some edgewear (small chips & tears; price-clipped) d/j. $750.00. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed with initials "SDH" in pencil.

      The Aleutians 1944 - Typed Letter, Signed by Hammett HAMMETT, Dashiell. Typed Letter Signed. with initials "SDH" in pencil. The Aleutians: 1944. One page, quarto, on typing paper. Addressed "Dearest Pru" (Whitfield). [Whitfield, the estranged wife of fellow Black Mask detective fiction writer Raoul Whitfield, and a possible lover of Hammett’s]. Fold lines. Tiny red ink checkmark to top right corner. Small green ink number (29) on the top left corner. Quarter-inch closed tear along one fold line, not affecting text. In fourth paragraph, Hammett has inserted a pencil correction to the word "cesor" making it "censor." The back of the letter contains an address for Hammett in pencil, reading "3118358/Sgt. S. dashiell Hammett/Als Dept. Orientation/ APO # 942- c/o PM/ Seattle/ Washington" Overall near fine. [Hammett enlisted during WWII, and while serving with the Army Signal Corps in Alaska, he collaborated on The Battle of the Aleutiansand edited the camp newspaper]. The Aleutians 27 July 1944 Dearest Pru-- Tonight I need a sooting hand and I wish yours were around. It's been a day of petty--what the Army calls chicken-shit --annoyances and he who writes this letter is an irritable and somewhat disgruntled old man who wishes they would get their God damned war over with and let him go home, even of that would mean the loss of the only steady employment he has had since the Army let him go home in 1919. The way I feel tonight, I may not enlist in any more of their lousy wars; but i guess that's going too far. Yesterday I soaked up a great deal of very fine sunshine, but today just enough haze hung around to put the sun a little on the impotent side and I did not manage to do myself very much good with it. The was news continues good. I imagine we've landed enough stuff by now to mount a fairly large-scale offensive and that things will soon be humming in Western Europe. I liked the Cummings verse you sent: I had forgotten it, and there wasn't any ce[n]sor for it to puzzle. In-coming mail isn't examined. And you better not complain about this being a short letter, darling, if you know when you're well off. A long one would be full of whining complaints, self-pity, pleas for your tears and miscellaneous belly-aching, because I've really got the vapors. Much love, dear.

Original printed boards, yellow endpapers, spiral bound. An important work from two of the great pioneers in the fields of information design and information architecture. "For a wide range of American businesses, Sutnar developed graphic systems that clarified vast amounts of complex information, transforming business data into digestible units. He was the man responsible for putting the parentheses around American telephone area-code numbers when they were first introduced" (AIGA National Design Center). An émigré to America in 1923, Lonberg-Holm was a fundamental correspondent with prominent European architects and their modernist counterparts in the U.S. The exhibition will feature a selection of letters to Lonberg-Holm from a pantheon of the European avant-garde including László Moholy-Nagy, Walter Gropius, Theo Van Doesburg, Buckminster Fuller, Hannes Meyer, J.J.P. Oud, El Lissitzky, and Richard Neutra. "Beginning in the late 1930s, Lönberg-Holm was the Director of Research for Sweet's Catalog Service, a division of F.W. Dodge Corporation in New York. Then as now, Sweet's was a clearing house for trade and industry catalogs selling common and arcane building, plumbing, electrical, and other construction supplies, to architects, contractors, and craftsmen" (Steven Heller, 'The Graphic Design Reader,' 1999).

        The Lost Weekend (First Edition, signed in the year of publication)

      Farrar and Rinehart, New York 1944 - First Edition. INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper in the year of publication to actress Kay Campbell: "For Kay Campbell / who is almost my favorite actress - and so damned nice (plus attractive) besides / Love and kisses from / Charlie Jackson / March 2nd, '44." Campbell is best known for her television roles in "Guiding Light" (1957-1964, as Helene Benedict) and "All My Children" (c. 1981-1983, as Kate Marin); the latter she held until her death in 1983. She began acting in radio serials in the mid 1940s, notably as Evey Perkins on the serial, "Ma Perkins" (1945-1960). Since Campbell had yet to hit the big screen, Jackson likely referred to her acting owing to what he heard on the radio.An attractive copy of the author's best-known title, basis for the 1945 drama directed by Billy Wilder and starring Ray Milland. Jackson's book was an overnight success, and the author went on to become an iconic spokesman for Alcoholics Anonymous, being one of the first to expand the scope of AA to discussion of drug use (something very common today). Early inscriptions by him are uncommon, particularly on this title.Very Good plus in a Very Good plus jacket. Spine ends lightly bumped, spine moderately faded, with slight discoloration at the top edge of the front board. Jacket lightly rubbed overall, with brief chipping at the extremities, a few tiny closed tears, and slight fading at the lower spine text. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Father of the Blues (Inscribed to Jack Teagarden)

      Macmillan, New York 1944 - Later printing. INSCRIBED by Handy to Jack Teagarden on the front endpaper: "To Jack Teagarden / With [heartfelt] apprecation [sic] / W.C. Handy / 5-16-1946." Teagarden, who was 40 years old at the time this inscription was made, is generally considered the father of the jazz trombone, and was one of the most important and influential musicians in jazz just prior to the bebop era. He played with virtually every key big band of the swing era, including Benny Goodman, Bix Beiderbecke, Red Nichols, Jimmy McPartland, Mezz Mezzrow, Eddie Condon, Glenn Miller, Louis Armstrong, and Earl Hines, as well as a number of successful ensembles and big bands that he led himself. Teagarden was also a singer, and recorded memorable duets with Louis Armstrong and Johnny Mercer. His broad figure and personage became something of a symbol of the Swing era by way of his appearance in films such as "Birth of the Blues" (1941), "The Glass Wall" (1953), and the noted documentary of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, "Jazz on a Summer's Day" (1960).The title of Handy's autobiography would not be an overstatement in any musician's or historian's mind. An intellectual and a natural musician, he traveled throughout Mississippi just after the turn of the century and absorbed the music being played by African-Americans throughout the Delta region, and by 1912 single-handedly introduced the 12-bar blues in Memphis with the publication of the sheet music for "Memphis Blues." Handy was 73 years old at the time this copy of his autobiography was inscribed to Teagarden, a period during which he resided on Striver's Row in Harlem. This was 3 years after a fall from a subway platform rendered him blind, accounting for the imperfections in this inscription, as well as all those made after 1943.A tremendous association between the father of blues and jazz and a legend of the Swing era.Good to Very Good overall, lacking dust jacket. Very slightly shaken, but binding tight, moderately shelfworn, with some chipping and tearing at the crown (titles not affected). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Twentieth Century-Fox, Los Angeles 1944 - Revised draft script for the 1944 film. Presentation copy, bound in brown cloth with gilt titles and Presidential Seal design on the front board, with lavish title and credits pages bound in. A lush chronicle of Wilson's political career, beginning with his decision to step down as the head of Princeton University and concluding with the end of his presidency. Twentieth Century-Fox's most expensive picture to the date of its release, costing close to five million dollars, the production had 162 sets, many that recreated rooms in the White House to a high degree of authenticity. Winner of five Academy Awards, and nominated for five others, including Best Picture. Though highly critically acclaimed, the film was unsuccessful at the box office, and it is rumored that producer Zanuck, a hearty Wilson admirer, forbade his employees from mentioning the film in his presence. Set in Washington DC, Princeton, New Jersey, and places on the campaign tour, shot on location in Princeton and Washington DC.Title page present ,with credits for producer Zanuck, director King, and screenwriter Trotti. 183 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 155.

        Novos contos da montanha.

      Coimbra, Coimbra Editora, 1944. - 8°, later quarter morocco over cloth boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, crimson morocco lettering piece in second compartment from head, gilt letter and gilt fillets on bands, original illustrated wrappers bound in. Uncut; overall in very good condition. Author's six-line signed and dated presentation inscription on recto of initial (blank) leaf: "Ao José Maria // citadao honorário da Montanha, // com um afortado abraço de // Miguel Torga // Coimbra // Out. de 44". Ticket of the Porto bookseller Manuel Ferreira in upper outer corner of front pastedown endleaf. Much larger engraved armorial bookplate of Dom Diogo de Bragança (Lafões). (1 blank l.), 197 pp., (1 l. colophon, 1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 50 NUMBERED SPECIAL-PAPER COPIES, signed by the author, of this collection of short stories, one of the author's more important works. On p. [6] is the justification stating that this is one of fifty copies on "papel C.E.", numbered and signed by the author. Below is indicated that this was "Exemplar n.º 11", with the number stamped in and "Miguel Torga" signed beneath. The wrappers were illustrated by Victor Palla.Among the most important Portuguese authors of the twentieth century (?figura cimeira das Letras portuguesas? - @Grande enciclopédia, Actualização, X, 397), the physician Adolfo Rocha was at the center of the "Grupo @Presença". His poetry is said to reflect "ainda as apreensões, esperanças e angústias do seu tempo, dentro de um ângulo individualista e, no fundo, religioso de visão, e a sua pureza e originalidade rítmicas, a coerência orgânica das suas imagens impõem-se ." (Saraiva & Lopes, p. 1061). Adolfo [Corrêa] Rocha, who wrote under the pseudonym Miguel Torga, made major contributions to Portuguese prose and poetry. Born in 1907 in S. Martinho de Anta, Trás-os-Montes, he made his literary debut in 1928 with @Ansiedade (not offered for sale to the public), followed by @Rampa, 1930, @Tributo, 1931, and Abismo, 1932 - all innovative in form and nonconformist in content. He gained wide public acclaim in 1936, with @O outro Livro de Job, and his autobiographical series @A criação do Mundo (os dos primeiros dias), 1937, @O terceiro dia da criação do Mundo, 1939, and @O quarto dia da criação do Mundo, 1939, is considered one of the major Portuguese prose works of this century. Torga was associated with the second Modernist movement, but broke away from it in 1930 to follow his own path: "verdadeiramente inconfundivel, caracterizado por um realismo de sentido individualizante, de feição violenta e vitalista, socialmente responsabilizado e responsabilizador" (Magalhães Gonçalves p. 12).@Provenance: According to a penciled inscription (in the hand of the Porto bookseller Manuel Ferreira [?] or Dom Diogo de Bragança [?]) on the front free endleaf recto of this volume "Jose Maria" was José Maria Reis Pereira, who wrote under the pseudonym José Régio, one of the most important forces in the second wave of Portuguese modernism. Régio collaborated with Torga on the influential literary review @Presença. However, we have been informed by a colleague who has handled a similar volume in which the full name of the recipient was present in the inscription, that "José Maria" was José Maria Lopes Gomes, apparently an old friend. Dom Diogo de Bragança (Lafões) (Lisbon, 1930-Lisbon, 2012) was an accomplished equestrian, author of books on dressage, and a dedicated bibliophile whose collection focused on books about horses and horsemanship, plus works on Portuguese history and literature. Dom Diogo used the courtesy title Marquês de Marialva, by permission of his elder brother, Dom Lopo de Bragança, Duque de Lafões, the actual holder of the title.

No copies located in the WorldCat/OCLC. $1500 Pagination: Table of Contents (5pp), introduction (3pp), then followed by sections 60.1 through 60.6 and 60.8 to 60.14 with evidently no 60.7: 60.1 (1pp), 60.2 (6pp), 60.3 (18pp), 60.4 (18pp), 60.5 (4pp), 60.6 (8pp), 60.8 (with the penciled note of “No 60.7”), 60.9 (1pp), 60.10 (12pp), 60.11 (6pp), 60.12 (10pp), 60.13 (14pp), and 60.14 (8pp) for a total of 115pp. NOTE on completeness: This is a confusing and seemingly-contradictory work bibliographically, or at least so far as the pagination goes. Perhaps this speaks to the administration of the places that this document was trying to describe: there are numerous versions of the document issued over several years, some replacing parts of sections and other replacing entire sections though leaving in place sections contiguous to and within the new sections; the tiny sub-pagination at the bottom right of each sheet doesn't necessarily follow from one page to another although the text does (for example, there is a page “C-109 2 p1 of 11 nubu-cos-pun-wp”; further, the pagination which is the most useful is the section/page designation at top right, however the numeration of sections and paragraphs in the actual text seems a little thick, starting sections as “.1” rather than “1” and the “.1 A.” rather than 1A or some such. In any event, I have determined that this document is complete in spite of some of these irregularities in logical pagination. The War Relocation Authority was formed on March 18, 1942 via Executive Order 9102, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the U.S. Entry into WWII, with Milton S. Eisenhower as the director. This was the action taken in the interests of national security resulting in rounding up and deporting to remote internal U.S. Destinations more than 125,000 people—mostly U.S. citizens—of Japanese heritage. The WRA was the consequence of the larger initiative, the Roosevelt administration’s Executive Order 9066 (19 February 1942), which was the legal bombshell that gave the War Department the authority to authorize the removal of the Japanese and theoretically prevent those people from engaging in sub rosa and fifth column activities as wartime terrorists fighting for Imperial Japan within the United States—and this effort concentrated mainly on the Pacific coast and West.+++The overall introduction to the document is signed (in the original, and then reproduced) by Dillon S. Myer, who was the Director and oversaw the WRA from 1942 until 1946; other sectional introductions in the document are signed similarly by Duncan Miller (who in 1945 was at the Colorado River Relocation Center at Poston, AZ), Malcolm Pitts (who was an executive administrator and who wrote Administrative Highlights of the WRA in 1945), E(?)D. Brooks, and Leland Barrows—all but Brooks are located as being “Executive Officers” of the WRA. From my reading this series of rules and regulations for the possibility of an "evacuee" to leave the relocation center is a Menkenian example of using 10 words where one word will do.
