        Typed letter signed "Hammett" in pencil, to Isadore Gottlieb. (APO Seattle). Dec. 28, 1944

      1944 - One page, 8 1/2 x 11 in Fine condition with envelope. On "Yank" Alaska edition letterhead. Writing to an Army friend in Detroit "Don't let this paper fool you.It only means I'm using Yank's office tonight and I'm going to stop it and take my trade elsewhere if they don't put darker ribbons in their typewriters.Last week I wound up on a four-month--some ten thousand miles in all--romp.Anything you want to know about Alaska and the Aleutians, just ask me. Yes, the Eskimo girls at Nome are often very pretty, usually very good-natured and practically always very diseased. No, there's no sense in trying to rig up a sea otter poaching racket on Amchitka, because, while you could angle it OK there, you couldn't peddle the skins anywere except, perhaps, in the London black market. Yes, Kodiak is a little gem, whether you want to shoot, fish, drink or futz around with dames." Hammett continues for another paragraph with discussion of his future travel plans, closing "I'm going to.get something to eat before I go back to bed--and with a bottle, brother, always with a bottle here! Luck to you, keed." This is the only letter to Gottlieb that was included in Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett, ed. Layman, 2001. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        World War II African-American Unit Photograph Album - North Africa and Italy

      North Africa and Italy, 1944. Homemade Photograph Album. Very Good. Homemade album of manila file folders and stiff green file dividers bound with two leather thongs. Approximately 9" x 8". 34 photographs are glued on the album pages with an additional 7 photographs laid in. Photographs range in size from 3"x 2" to 3" x 4". The album cover and pages are soiled and worn. Pictures are all in nice shape; some show corner wear, perhaps from being first mounted elsewhere. This album, probably made in country from army supplies, documents a small POL (Class III: petroleum, oil, lubricant) supply unit (probably a squad or platoon) of African-American soldiers that served in the North African and Italian campaigns (in one photo a Tech 4, Sergeant equivalent, is wearing a North African Theater Command patch above his chevron and other photos show pictures of Rome). The photographs include many typical buddy photographs, a group of men posing at their POL point, several men manning machine guns and recoilless anti-tank rocket launchers (bazookas), Italian girlfriends and girlfriends from home, a female Italian partisan fighter, three men shooting craps, an Italian hooker displaying her wares, and two different images of one man displaying his genitals. Quite an unusual and exceptional group of photos; a seldom seen, realistic documentation of junior enlisted life in an overseas African-American army unit.

My health remains good, though I have been useless since I've exercised. This a.m. I had a teletype from Jerry Matjka, saying you were in good health & sprits, and indicating that you had the reports on our current operations. Now you can see only I've been talking lately of 'pressure.' Everything is going well at the moment. I hope we can keep on in the same way. My correspondence is in arrears. I owe a hundred letters ?" but I can't help it. I hear from people who say they are intimate friends ?" they've become so since my name got into the papers. But [Commander] Butcher or [Lieutenant Colonel] Lee tries to answer all except those palpably looking for signature - those they throw into the wastebasket.

        Le premier roman de Joyce. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-8 published in the issue dated 18 May 1944 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Important literary review published on the occasion of the publication of the new edition of the French translation of "Dedalus", the first novel by James Joyce. Full typescript is attached. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought. " (C. Bident). The autograph manuscripts of Maurice Blanchot are of great rarity. S.n. (Journal des débats) s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1944) 13,5x21,5cm & 2 pages in-4 2 1/2 pages in-8

      n.p., May 1944. 8" x 10.5". "Rare Autograph Letter Signed ?Eleanor Roosevelt? as First Lady, 1p, 8? x 10.5? (visible). [May 1944, no place] To Mr. [Walter Francis] White. Double matted with a photograph of Mrs. Roosevelt and attractively framed to 20? x 17?. In apparent fine condition. In full ?I want to add my words of appreciation & gratitude to this twenty-fifth anniversary of your service in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. What you do for your own people is indirectly done for us all, since, when conditions are bad for the colored they are usually bad for the white as well. You have been patient & courageous & inspired others to unselfish service & I send you my best wishes for many more years of profitable work.? The May 26, 1944, edition of The New York Times headlined ?600 Pay tribute / to Walter White / Willkie and Mrs. Roosevelt Join / in Honoring Him for 25 Years? / Service to Negroes.? In part, ?Wendell Willkie and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt joined last night with 600 citizens and civic leaders of all parties and faiths in paying tribute to Walter White at a dinner in the Hotel Roosevelt in celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of his service as secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ... Mr. Willkie gave $5,000 from the Wendell Willkie Trust Fund, established with the proceeds of his book ?One World.? It was his first public appearance since his withdrawal from the contest for the Republican Presidential nomination [he had been his party?s nominee against FDR in 1940]. Mrs. Roosevelt, who brought the President?s greetings to Mr. White, added her praise of the Negro leader, by saying that he always had known how to grasp victory from defeat...? Photocopy of the article is included. Undoubtedly, Mrs. Roosevelt personally presented the letter here offered to White expounding on her praise since she was, ostensibly, speaking at the dinner representing her husband, the President. ?After Walter Francis White (1893-1955) graduated from Atlanta University in 1916, the son of Madeline and George White left his job selling insurance and joined the Atlanta branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the influential civil rights organization he would eventually lead through four decades of the twentieth century. Able to ?pass? as white because he was light-skinned with blue-eyes, and armed with boundless wits and energy, White became the NAACP's foremost undercover investigator of Southern lynchings, and he personally traveled thousands of miles every year between 1918 and 1927, and reported first-hand on forty-one lynchings, eight race riots and at least two major cases of peonage. ""?I Investigate Lynchings,? a 1929 piece by White in H.L. Mencken's ?The American Mercury,? is an overview of this decade of his investigations, reports that had appeared in the NAACP's monthly ?The Crisis,? or were serialized in major African American newspapers like the ?Chicago Defender? and ?Pittsburgh Courier,? and which had reached national audiences through periodicals such as the ?New Republic,? ?American Mercury?,? Nation? and ?Saturday Evening Post?... ?In 1931 White succeeded James Weldon Johnson as the national secretary of the NAACP, and he would later chronicle much of that important organization's mid-century struggles for civil rights in his autobiography and in the posthumously published ?How Far the Promised Land?? (1955). In July 1943, White and NAACP Special Counsel Thurgood Marshall co-authored ?What Caused the Detroit Riot?,? an analysis of the June 1943 race riot that left thirty-four people dead, twenty-five of them black. In 1944 and 1945 During World War II, White visited the European, North African and Pacific theaters of war, sending back to the ?New York Post? and other periodicals accounts of what he saw, including his analyses of the experiences of black servicemen on American military bases, much of which he later described in ?A Rising Wind: A Report on the Negro Soldier in the European Theatre of War? (1945)...? [Georgia Writers Hall of Fame]"

        [Ford Motor Dealers "Hail and Farewell" Dinner Album]

      (Chicago), (1944). Good +. Oblong red gilt leather string-tied 4to. photo album, 7.25" x 11.25" approx. With 47 5" x 7" B&W photographs mounted recto and verso to 25 leaves, plus several pieces of related scrap. Album good only with extremities heavily worn and leather separating from top board. But contents entirely sound and easily very good or better. Commemorative photo album specially assembled for retiring executive Arthur Hatch (with his name gilt to front cover). The album chronicles the December 14, 1944 retirement party held for Hatch (who was the area manager of the Ford auto dealers Chicago branch) at the Morrison Hotel, Chicago. The event also welcomed W.K Edmunds as his replacement, with the dinner menu and program brochure mounted to the interior. Several photographs showing attendee Henry Ford II. Other images include various attendees posing with Ford engines, a complete dealer parts counter recreated in-situ (top right), plus hardware displays, and the evening's entertainments, which included acrobats and an erotic dancer (top left). A particularly striking pair of photos, in a brash display of period corporate male chauvinism, show an unnamed man holding a shotgun opposite the aforementioned topless female dancer. Also present are images of toasts and other apparent burlesques, posed group shots, images of diners and attendees, etc. A frank auto industry memento.

        Alain Campbell White Letters to Frederick Gamage

      Self Written, Summerville, Littchfield and New York 1944 - Alain Campbell White letters to Frederick Gamage cover the years from April 4, 1935 to September 15, 1944. For this ten year period there are 364 dated letters and 28 incomplete letters (lacking front date page). The letters are an ongoing correspondence between White and Gamage which covers all aspects of problem chess. The letters show a development of mentor (White), encouraging ad occasionally prodding his protégé (Gamage) in developing skills in problem construction. As the letters progress over this ten year period, the reader can observe the relationship develop between the two men, from a formal intercourse to a more comradely banter. White offered suggestions, comments and themes for problems. White¿s vast and profound technical knowledge, his artistic appreciation, his ability in expressing himself, and his enthusiastic and friendly encouragement were the great inspiration of many problems Gamage constructed, and he was lucky enough to be among his host of correspondents. Some of the letters were multiple pages hand typed, but often hand written, some unsigned or just initialed, usually with the location White was residing and the date written. Included with the letters are the limited edition work by Alain White on Gamage Frederick Gamage: An Artist in Chess Problems and Mike Prcic¿s book Frederick Gamage. The letters in the latter work have been reproduced from the original letters offered now. Newman Guttman was one of a few problemists to visit Frederick Gamage. After the passing of Gamage, the letters from Alain White along with Gamage¿s other chess papers were given to Guttman. He, in turn, gave these papers to Edgar Holladay. Holladay came into the possession of what problemists would consider as ¿treasures,¿ one-of-a-kind items from famous and well-known problemists. Robert Moore and Holladay were good friends and these were passed to him by Holladay¿s wife, Rita. Serious buyers may inquire about more information regarding this collection. Condition: The letters have folds for postage, some occasional stains, and occasional edge wear else a very good collection. They are housed in individual archival holders held in a multiple three ring binders. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        LAND OF UNLIKENESS Inscribed to Randall Jarrell

      Cummington Press, (Cummington, MA) 1944 - Publisher's blue boards stamped in orange, title page printed in red and black with woodcut in blue by Gustav Wolf. Housed in a half blue morocco leather slipcase. Introduction by Allen Tate. Lowell's scarce first book, limited to a total of 250 copies printed. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper to poet Randall Jarrell: "For Randall/with affection and admiration/and no apologies for dogma,/Cal." Lowell was nicknamed Caligula at preparatory school, and the diminutive "Cal" stuck with him throughout his life. Lowell and Jarrell met at Kenyon College, where they were roommates, and became lifelong friends, each providing valuable criticism of the other's work. In 1965, Lowell eulogized the friend who had been one of two beneficiaries of his will: "Randall Jarrell was the only man I have ever met who could make other writers feel that t heir work was more important to him than his own." Along with the copies Lowell presented to John Crowe Ransom--at the University of Texas--and Allen Tate--in a private collection--this is one of the three most compelling association copies imaginable. Allen Tate, in his introduction to this collection, tempers his praise with a fair assessment of Lowell's current stature and potential, heralding a lasting presence in American poetry: "The history of poetry shows that good verse does not inevitably make its way; but unless, after the war, the small public for poetry shall exclude all except the democratic poets who enthusiastically greet the advent of the slave-society, Robert Lowell will have to be reckoned with." Two years later, Lowell would win the Pulitzer Prize for LORD WEARY'S CASTLE, at the age of 30. Small ink date of 1944 at the bottom right corner of the title page, likely in Jarrell's hand. Mild sunning to the spine which has a small, neat repair at the head; lacking the plain tissue dustwrapper. Near Fine in a Fine box [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
