With letter of provenance. Le Malentendu [The Misunderstanding], was written by Camus in 1943 and first performed on August 24, 1944. It "is a highly subjective presentation by Camus of the human condition as he saw it in the desperate circumstances of 1942-43" and was once described by Camus as "the play that resembles me the most" (Freeman; Williams, The Misunderstanding and Caligula). Caligula, written in 1938, but not performed until 1945 was based on the life of the notorious Roman Emperor. Along with The Stranger and The Myth of Sisyphus, it constitutes part of what Camus referred to as his "Cycle of the Absurd". With original promotional slip by Gallimard laid-in.

        Four Quartets.

      London: Faber and Faber,, 1944. Octavo. Original tan cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine rolled and covers bowed, leaves cockled, grey mark to top corner of pp. 38-40. A very good copy in the dust jacket, spine panel slightly faded, slight soiling to rear panel and small brown mark to front panel. First UK collected edition, first impression. Presentation copy, signed by the author on the title page, and accompanied by a typed and signed presentation letter from the author to P. T. R. Gillett. Gillett was a long-time friend of Eliot's, and they had been colleagues during the poet's eight year career as a clerk with Lloyd's Bank from 1917 until 1925. Eliot presented numerous copies of his books to Gillett over the years. The presentational letter for this book is typed on Faber and Faber stationary and reads thus: "Dear Mr. Gillett, I should have written before this, but for a spell of influenza, to apologise personally for the mistake about your copy of the Quartets. I trust that you duly received the second copy that was sent: as for the first, there is no possibility of retrieving it. It was sent by an odd mistake to a man I know slightly, and though no doubt he was surprised at receiving a signed copy of my book, I think he might be rather hurt by being told that it was not intended for him! Yours sincerely, T. S. Eliot". A fine association copy.

        [Photo Album]: R.A.F. India and South Africa World War II

      India, 1944. Near Fine. Oblong quarto measuring 9.5" x 12". String-tied green cloth over paper boards. Contains 130 sepia toned or black and white silver photographs measuring between 2.25" x 3.5" to 5.5" x 8" with captions. Album is very good with age toning and wear on the board edges with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by Sergeant K.J. Turner while serving with the Royal Air Force (R.A.F.) in World War II between 1942 and 1944. Turner split his time with the Air Force between the R.A.F. station in Leeming, North Yorkshire, India, and Durban, South Africa. The photos show Turner with a number of different units including the men of the Number 14 and Number 7 squadrons posed for group photos around various bases including Skegness on the coast of England. Number 7 was also referred to as the "pathfinder force" and was used to scout bomber locations and eventually mark targets for Bomber Command. Turner then found himself with the 429 Transport Squadron, originally formed as a Bomber squadron combining Canadian and English pilots.The base at Durban was used as a training facility by the Royal Air Force during the war and Turner is pictured here with other trainees in a rickshaw, among native South Africans in traditional clothing, and watching Zulu dancing. One page entitled, "studies of African native life," shows a collection of commercially produced photography of the native Africans Turner was seeing including "Piccannins at meal time," "a Maxosa in meditation," and "native hairdressers in South Africa putting on the finishing touch." Turner takes snapshots of Bombay and Karachi with images showing the police directing traffic, the Bay of Bombay, and the Taj Mahal Hotel. Two photos show Karachi before and after a monsoon. They traveled throughout India to various cities including Jodhpur, and Allahabad as well as the Pakistan city of Lahore. These photos show R.A.F. boys with local railway officials, at the museum at Lucknow, and impersonating "Sikhs" which involved wearing a turban and posing as a yogi. Towards the end of the album the men are seen enjoying Christmas and a State dinner at Headquarters with snapshots of jovial officers after a drink or two. The album ends in 1944 and according to online war records Turner was captured and kept as a prisoner of war until the end of the conflict, although it is not clear who he was held by.An extensive collection of an R.A.F. Sergeant in India and Africa in the years leading up to his capture during World War II.

        The Greatest Gift: A Christmas Tale

      Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1944. First edition of this classic Christmas story, the basis for Frank Capra's beloved movie, "It's a Wonderful Life." Small Octavo, original cloth. In near fine condition, contemporary inscription to the front free endpaper. Inspired by a dream, remarkably similar to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol published in 1843, Stern finished the 4,100-word short story in 1943 after working on it since November 1939. Unable to find a publisher, he sent the 200 copies he had printed as a 21-page booklet to friends as Christmas presents in December 1943. Stern privately published the short story in 1945, and it was copyrighted in 1945. The story came to the attention of RKO Pictures producer David Hempstead, who showed it to actor Cary Grant, who became interested in playing the lead role. RKO purchased the motion-picture rights for $10,000 in April 1944. After several screenwriters worked on adaptations, RKO sold the rights to the story in 1945 to Frank Capra's production company for the same $10,000, which he adapted into It's a Wonderful Life. The film starring James Steward and Donna Reid was nominated for five Oscars and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made.

      1944 - CIOS November 1944. Intelligence report X-1. ** Note: One of the especially rare and early Combined Intelligence (CIOS) SECRET reports, every copy numbered for additional security. As the front cover shows, these numbered reports were issued solely by CIOS, not by the commonly-found joint CIOS/HMSO name. Many of the reports in this 'CIOS only' format were suppressed and were not subsequently declassified and re-issued with the CIOS/HMSO imprint. Only a very few original numbered CIOS reports, of which this is one, survived the post-war years. Few collectors know they exist; only a tiny handful actually owns one. ** SECRET Copy No. 115 on the storage facilities for V2 rocket fuel at Bas Moriers, Vaas, in the Pays de la Loire in North-west France.

        [Military][World War II] Kriegsgefangener (Prisoner of War) #13017.

      Germany. 1944-1945*. Germany: 1944-1945 [though probably printed in the 1980s]. 11” x 8½”. Typescript leaves, three hole punched and held by prongs in upper and lower holes. Pp. [title leaf] [introduction leaf] 1-22; 1-63 (approximately 60,000 words). Very good: title leaf heavily worn and foxed with chipping at extremities, the rest with minor wear and light toning. Dr. Chester W. Morse, from Decatur, Georgia, was a graduate of Harvard Medical School who served in the medical corps attached to the 35th infantry. He was captured by the Germans on August 8, 1944 and was imprisoned at various camps in Darren, Bonn and Koln until April 13, 1945 when he was freed by the 13th Armored Division. His densely packed journal is filled with numerous accounts of kindness and atrocity, hope, despair, humor, terror, agony and more. The journal begins with his first experience of war at the Battle of St. Lo in July 1944, where he treated 326 wounded men the first two days: “men came in walking with part of their faces gone. One walked in with holes through the back of his hands so large that you could stick three fingers right through. His fingers dangled from the ends. ” He wrote that by the time he left St. Lo, over 50 percent of his battalion was wounded or dead. On August 8, 1944, he was captured along with three other officers and 50 other men. During this phase of his captivity, he moved a lot, and wrote about treating German soldiers as well as dodging the shells of the Allies who were getting ever closer. At one point, his group was so hungry they were on the brink of cannibalism. Interspersed throughout are his thoughts on war and peace, his memories of family back home, and through it all an invaluable record of the daily life wherever he was: from the creation of barter economies to the contempt the various nationalities had for one another, the scarcity of supplies, the thoughts and treatment of the local populace and a lot more.

        Fêtes galantes *

      Mermod, Lausanne 1944. - Reliure demi maroquin bordeaux signée de Michalak 26 x 19, couverture Chine imprimée. L'un des 15 exemplaires de tête numérotés (VIII) sur Chine. 1 lithographie originale en frontispice et 14 dessins de René Auberjonois. Du tirage le plus précieux, bien complet de la lithographie originale annoncée en sus et réservée pour l'édition de tête. En ayant déjà disposé d'un exemplaire, il se trouve que cette dernière (un guitariste) devait truffer le tirage des bonnes feuilles du livre de Ramuz sur Auberjonois paru chez Mermod en 1943. La plus grande fantaisie régnant dans la gestion de l'oeuvre gravé et lithographié de l'artiste, ce décalage n'est pas bouleversifiant. Ce qui l'est par contre c'est qu'une planche volante de l'estampe manquante (dame à la coiffe de plumes) y est jointe sur feuillet 26 x 19.L'exemplaire est également (considérablement) enrichi :- D'une dédicace autographe signée de l'artiste à la date du 1er janvier 1949, avec légère décharge d'encre au verso vu le papier pompant ? j'ai pas dit pompeux !- D'une carte autographe signée du même deux jours plus tard- En sus enfin de légendes à la mine de plomb qui riment avec cinq illustrations.Bel ensemble, personnalisé, comme aimait parfois à le faire Auberjonois.[Bringolf 74a]

        ANTI-ALLIED / ANTI-COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA:] Smesno. ti anglesko-ameriski programi. Jaz imam svoj program! [Funny these Anglo-American Programmes I have my own Programme!].

      [Probably Ljubljana, circa ]. 1944 - Flyer (14,5 x 21 cm / 5.7 x 8.2 inches), printed on both sides of green paper (Very Good, some light toning and minor tears to margins). An extremely rare flyer lampooning Stalin and decrying the Bolshevik’ threat, seemingly made by the Domobranci, the collaborationist Slovene Home Guard. This curious double-sided flyer depicts Joseph Stalin as laughing while throwing international treaties into the trash, upon which he reveals his "own programme": a gun and a whip. The text on the verso claims that England is incredibly foolish for allowing itself to "bleed out" on behalf of Bolshevik intentions, and that nobody else should follow such a path. It would be wiser to join "smart" countries, such as Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, who are already fighting on the German side. Not surprisingly, given its ephemeral nature, a flyer is extremely rare.

        Judaica

      August 2, 1944. Oskar Schindler witnessed a German raid on the Jewish ghetto in Krakow in the summer of 1942 and watched innocent people being packed onto trains bound for certain death. He later said, "Beyond this day, no thinking person could fail to see what would happen. I was now resolved to do everything in my power to defeat the system." After the Krakow ghetto was liquidated, many Jews were sent to the Plaszow concentration camp. Schindler wrote the names and jobs of 1200 Jews at Plaszow that he needed to work at his enamelware factory in Krakow and gave this list to the Nazi SS. His workers were called the Schindlerjuden (Schindler Jews). He called them "my children." The camp at Plaszow had been opened in December 1942. As the Russian forces advanced in late 1944, the Germans began the evacuation of the slave labor camps in their path. From the camp at Plaszow, many were sent to Auschwitz.
