        Rare War time Autograph Letter Signed to Martha Gellhorn, 6 separate 8vo pp of tan graph paper, August 6, 1944. This letter is one of a handful of surviving Hemingway letters to Gellhorn. According to her son Sandy Gellhorn, some months before her death in 1998, Martha burned most of her correspondence files, including her letters from Hemingway. Sandy was able to interrupt the process, saving this letter from destruction

      Very Good. Hemingway writes to Martha Gellhorn who was stationed at the time as a war correspondent with the Allied forces in Normandy but was on assignment in Italy. Hemingway was at Mont. St. MIchel recuperating from injuries in a jeep accident caused by a German shell. In part, "Am so glad you are happy and having a fine time and getting some sun. Am sure you will get good stories too and anyway living and being happy is better than stories. Please take everything I say straight and do not read in hidden meanings nor insults...Hung around with some flying pals a while then hooked up with an Infantry division... We took 6 SS Panzer bastard prisoner Aug. 2 -- You may have seen something about it in Aug 5 Stars and Striped...Day before yest while in advance of infantry I got knocked down by a tank shell. enemy tank then fired on us and on me playing dead by road with machine gun. threw dirt all over head and cut leaves from hedge all over helmet. They also had at least 2 machine pistols in cross fire on each side of road. Two Germans crawled up to hedge and could hear them talking. Was quite a time...If we had not run into that place first they would have killed many people. Am very good at imitating a dead [man] under such circumstances...Think instead of piece will write short stories of life in [the infantry] Division. Have good ones and will write them and cable them...The stuff is too wonderful to write as journalism...So I will just write the stories as well as I can. Please do not think I have been being a crazy. Have been working very close to the bull but everything have done has been useful...I am going to stay with it [the Division]. I don't care about being the first into any place nor about 'the story'. Would rather be with those who do the fighting in some useful capacity and then go home finally and write book & be buried in a good country like France which I have always loved very much anyway and see and love better than ever did before. Only hope I can write as well about it as I should...." He signs, "E. Hemingway, War Correspondent." Hemingway was a war correspondent for "Colliers" and was embedded with the US 4th Division that landed on the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944. He stayed with the division as they marched into Paris to liberate it from the Germans on August 25, 1944. As mentioned in this letter that if he had to die, he would want to be "buried in a good country like France which I have always loved very much anyway...." This letter was written toward the end of Gellhorn and Hemingway's marriage. Hemingway had already met his fourth wife, Mary Welsh. Hemingway mentions some friends in this letter. Buddy North (Henry W.R. "Buddy" North) was one of the owners of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circle. According to "Dear Papa, Dear Hotch: The Correspondence of Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner," Buddy and Hemingway "caroused together in London during World War II...."  Hemingway says that Buddy North is "somewhere around but have not seen him." Capa is Robert Capa, the war photographer and photojournalist who was the only photojournalist at the landing at Omaha Beach on D-Day. He, too, worked for "Colliers" and then for "Life" magazine. He was a good friend of Hemingway and Gellhorn whom Hemingway met during the Spanish Civil War.  A Youtube video from "atelierdesarchives.com" shows footage of Hemingway and Capa on Mont St. Michel in August of 1944 and in this letter Hemingway states, "Capa is here now.".

        Ficciones

      Buenos Aires, 1944 First edition. One of 3000 copies. A nice, near fine copy and not often found like this. It's a fragile publication and doesn't have the muscle of the similarly styled Ulysses to withstand the punishment of time. Rubbing along front joint, a small water spot on the spine, little stains here and there, and the super cheap paper stock has browned per usual. Faults notwithstanding, this is a money copy. It's bright and unrepaired - well worth a space on the shelf.The Argentine's mind contorting collection of short stories - a mash up of myth, history, fantasy, parables, mysticism, and philosophy. Human consciousness has levels of malleability and multi-dimensionality that we largely ignore. This is a hobbyhorse of mine via meditation, but drugs will also take you to similar places in a much more ill advised manner. Reading Borges is yet another alternative to unlocking our steel traps and beyond that, he's simply an important and influential writer.

      1944. England, 1944 - 1987. Octavo. c. 400 pages Original Softcover. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. John Francis Alexander Heath-Stubbs OBE (9 July 1918 – 26 December 2006) was an English poet and translator, known for his verse influenced by classical myths, and the long Arthurian poem Artorius (1972). nHeath-Stubbs was born in London, and educated at Bembridge School and Queen's College, Oxford. He co-edited Eight Oxford Poets in 1941, with Sidney Keyes and Michael Meyer, and helped edit Oxford Poetry in 1942–43. Held the Gregory Fellowship of Poetry at Leeds University (1952–55) and he had professorships in Alexandria (1955–58) and Ann Arbor, Michigan (1960-61). He taught at the College of St Mark and St John in Chelsea (1962–72), as well as at Merton College, Oxford for twenty years from 1972. He lived for a time in the 1950s at Zennor in Cornwall. Translated, among others, Sappho, Horace, Catullus, Hafiz, Verlaine, and most notably Giacomo Leopardi. He was a representative figure of British poetry in the early 1950s, editing the poetry anthology Images of Tomorrow (1953) and, with David Wright, the Faber Book of Twentieth Century Verse, among others. He was elected to the RSL in 1954, awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 1973, and appointed OBE in 1989. Although afflicted by blindness from the 1960s, and completely without sight from 1978, he continued to write almost to the end. Ibycus: A Poem by John Heath-Stubbs, documentary film was made by the Chilean director Carlos Klein in 1997.nHis diction was strong, yet subtle. Running through his work, like that of most romantic poets, was a nostalgia for "classicism". He was consciously literary, and his work was elaborately wrought rather than spontaneous, so it was not the kind of poetry likely to have mass appeal. However, his devotion to the craft of poetry makes his work impressive. Few writers of his time had a deeper knowledge of the English language, or cared for it more devotedly. (Wikipedia)

Gütt, aus dem Vorwort). - Umfangreicher und eindringlicher Einblick in das medizinische Feld zur Zeit des Nationalsozialismus. Der Herausgeber Arthur Gütt, Urheber der nationalsozialistischen Zwangssterilisationspolitik, möchte mit dem Blatt die bis dato verschiedenen Organisationen des Gesundheitswesen einigen, und "ermöglichen, die Ärzte und Hilfskräfte der Gesundheitsämter im Sinne nationalsozialistischer Staatsführung und nationalsozialistischer Weltanschauung zu erziehen, um sie zu befähigen, das nationalsozialistische Wollen der Gesetze Adolf Hitlers und seiner Regierung auf dem Gebiet des Gesundheitswesens praktisch durchzuführen".

        [Photos]: Prisoners in German POW Camp. Christmas 1944

      1944. Five black and white gelatin silver photographs. Each image is 6" x 4.25". Wear or small chips in the corners not visibly affecting the images, very good. "POW Camp" written in ink on the verso of four of the images, the remaining image has "Officer Quarters" in the same hand on its verso. The images are all of the same group of POWs, both British and American, in their ramshackle barracks in a German POW camp. Two of the images are group shots of the men, in widely varied uniforms, and with several in silly costumes (French waiters, a Beefeater). Another shows prisoners playing a guitar and harmonicas, as other prisoners dance together, a fourth shows a man in a kilt playing percussion on a bottle accompanied by the guitarist, and the final image is of a man in a flannel robe wearing a Santa hat and a white wig handing another prisoner an American Red Cross Prisoner of War Food Package. In two of the images there is a sign reading "Merry Christmas 1944" (although there is a light penciled mark on the verso of one that reads "Xmas 43 Howe," but it seems likely they were all taken at the same time). The men are from both the army and navy, and are wearing several different uniforms: British, American, and possibly Australian, and French. Each man has a number affixed to the upper right of his uniform blouse. A few bottles, possibly of beer, are in evidence. Compelling images of men imprisoned during WWII. .
