        Women at War Collection : The Tiddley Times ; Three Page Typed 'Naval Message' Letter ; We Skirted the War! (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Services, Wartime 'zine)

      Ottawa, ON: Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service, 1944. Paperback. Near Fine. 1. The Tiddley Times, 12mo (7 inches tall), pp. various, illustrated with line drawings, photo reproductions and portraits by Lieutenant Grant Macdonald. A nice, unbroken run of The Tiddley Times (April/May 1944 - Jan/Feb 1945), 7 issues complete. 2. An uncredited, three page story titled "We've Been Waiting For You Canada" (n.p./ n.d.) typed in red ink onto "Naval Message" India paper stationary (7-5/8 square - hole punched, stapled and folded), describing the women's journey by steamer and train from Canada to their London West End barracks. The Feb/March '44 issue herein states on p. 31 "3rd draft arrives in UK ... in Feb", which coincides with the letter's title of "We've Been Waiting For You Canada" as well as the timing - so likely the story dates from then. 3. A copy of We Skirted the War by Phylis Bowman, 8vo (8-3/8 inches tall), pp. 133, illustrated with B&W photo reproductions and line drawings. Good. Stains to a few pages, wear and sticker abrasion to dust jacket. A small but focused collection of these "snapshots" of the lives of the working WRCNS during wartime, with art work by the Naval Art Service and Portraits by Royal Canadian Academy member Lieutenant Grant Macdonald. Each issue is informative, sharing the latest news by, for and about Canadian women at war - both those at home and those serving at their various stations abroad. The final issue of The Tiddley Times was Dec. 1945, exactly two years after the first (as yet unnamed) issue in Dec. 1943. The typed letter likely served as an in-service announcement of the arrival of the latest contingent of WRENS to the UK from Canada. Also included is Phylis Bowman's autobiography "We Skirted the War" who served in the Canadian Woman's Army Corps during the same period.

        Signed Framed Embossed Panel Engraving

      , 1944. 1944. unbound. Inscribed in a calligrapher's hand: "To E.L. Alperson, for his help in the fight against infantile paralysis," no date, circa 1944. Alperson (1895 - 1969) was an American film producer at Warner Brothers who later formed Grand National Distributors as an outlet for independent films in the 1940s. In 1942 he became the general manager of RKO Pictures' theater circuit, and it is likely that his work with the March of Dimes earned him this personally signed engraving from the President. 13.75 x 10.5 inches, set in a gorgeous wood burgundy stained frame measuring 17 x 14 inches. Roosevelt has signed this boldly with a brown fountain pen. The engraving has a few scattered small spots, but is still in near fine condition. Evidence suggests that Roosevelt signed this piece in early 1944. In February 1943, motion picture theaters organized a drive to raise funds for the March of Dimes. On his birthday (January 30) in 1944, Roosevelt signed lithographs such as this one in order to thank those whose work helped make the drive successful. According to auction records, Roosevelt presented a similar engraving to Frank Meyer, an executive at Paramout Pictures Corporation. Accompanying Meyer's engraving when it was sold at auction was a copy of a book titled "So They May Walk Again...A Book of good Deeds / Report of Collectors by Motion Picture Theatres / March of Dimes / February 18 to 24, 1943 / In Co-Operation with National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.

Dated May 16, 1944. 1 p. Small tear at the head, else fine. <br>Porter began working on the score for the planned Warner Brothers film Mississippi Belle in 1943, but his dealings with producer Arthur Schwartz were difficult from the beginning of the project. Porter did not take kindly to Schwartz's many suggestions for changes to his songs, and eventually complained to the studio head. Schwartz was forced to back down, but after this conflict the project was shelved and the film was never made.<br><br><br>

        L'Écrin des gemmes en quatre caractères

      XVI-557 pages, suivi d'un Saigon, SILI, 1944, in-4, XVI-557 pages, suivi d'un index français 55p. et chinois 50p, broché, Recueil de sentences parallèles tirées d'auteurs classiques chinois ou du folklore. Il constitue une introduction aux formules en quatre caractères. Les sentences parallèles prennent leurs sources dans la littérature chinoise. Appelées duilian en Chine, ou Doanh thiep au Vietnam, elles constituent un art poétique ancestral. Les sentences utilisent l'antithèse par les idées et les mots employés. Cependant, les vers doivent répondre à une symétrie dans la forme, dans les caractères (nombre) et le sens (parallélisme des idées). Le poète souligne ainsi sa pensée, grâce au contraste des mots ou des idées contenus dans un même vers ou d'une strophe à l'autre. Pierre Daudin précise la fonction de ces sentences : "Les formules en quatre caractères entrent (...) dans la composition des ming, épitaphes en vers gravés sur les stèles, dans celle des brevets impériaux". Elles sont "associées à toutes les manifestations de la vie chinoise : aux frontons des pagodes et des temples, sur les bandes de papier rouge apposées aux portes de toutes les maisons à l'occasion du Nouvel An, parmi les décorations florales qui rehaussent la pompe des grands mariages, enfin sur les bannières de deuil qui accompagnent les morts et qui relatent leurs vertus". Couverture légèrement défraîchie, quelques mouillures sur la 1ère de couverture.

        Archie: Senior Year at Tri-State

      Newell, California / (Tule Lake): Tri-State High School Journalism Department. 1944. First. Small square quarto. [36]pp. Illustrated. Stapled mimeographed leaves in illustrated mimeographed wrappers. Tiny chip at one corner of the front wrap, else fine. Combination high school magazine and yearbook issued by students attending school at the Tule Lake Internment Camp for Japanese Americans. "Archie" was a fictional character created by the students to represent the typical student of the November, 1944 Senior Class. He is represented throughout the magazine suffering various indignities at the hands of his fellow students as well as the usual conventions of high school yearbooks: the "Class Wills," the "Hall of Fame" (listing the Smartest, Cutest, etc.), news of sports and events, etc. The Tule Lake Segregation Center was one of 10 camps built to house interned Japanese Americans during World War Two. Of the 10 such camps built, Tule Lake was the largest and most controversial, housing draft resisters and Japanese Americans who were considered the most disloyal. After the war it became a holding area for Japanese Americans slated for deportation or expatriation to Japan, including some who had renounced their United States citizenship under duress. Very cheaply produced for an interim Fall, 1944 graduating class. Rare. OCLC locates no copies. .

Commercial black pebbled leather screw-post binder with general wear to covers, top cover with gilt lettering, 35 leaves of black construction paper with 132 black and white photographs, some 2" x 2", most larger, three blank leaves at rear, captioning to approximate 27% of the images, some photos show yellowing and fading but most are quite clear; very good + condition. 133rd Infantry 34th Division: The 34th Infantry Division (called the Red Bulls) was the first U.S. division deployed to Europe in World War II as it was deemed one of the most service-ready units. It included troops mostly from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. After fighting in French Algeria and Tunisia, the 34th assisted in the Allied invasion of Italy, called Operation Avalanche. They landed in Salerno, took Benevento, assaulted Monte Patano, and persevered through intense fighting along the Mignano Gap, using goat herds to clear the minefield. They were nearly successful in Monte Cassino in January, 1944 at a cost of approximately 80% in the infantry battalions. This photo album is of the communications platoon within the 34th division. There are photos of German prisoners and both German and American wounded, along with some coffins being made in Italy. There are working pictures of soldiers: looking at maps, using communications equipment, peeps (later called a Jeep), German radio gear, ambushed peep, rifles/guns/mines, cooking, shaving, playing cards, meeting locals. Pictures of local areas include Pompei, Rome, Florence, Cassino, Futa Pass, Anzio, and St. Angelo D’Alife (where a member of the platoon lost his life). Misc. pictures of interest include: a pile of ammunition with a local dog sitting on top, vapor trails of flying fort bombers, and a soldier holding an official ballot for Kalamazoo County for the presidential election of 1944. Includes 1940s World War II Honorable Discharge insignia patch on front paste-down endpaper
