        Rectal Surgery - A practical Guide to the Modern Surgical Treatment of Rectal Diseases. With 2 Colour Plates and 105 illustrations in the Text.

      Cassell and Company Ltd.,. Second Edition. London / Toronto / Bombay / Melbourne and Sydney, Cassell and Company Ltd., 1944. 8°. VII, 359 pages. Original Hardcover with the very scarce original dustjacket (unclipped). Excellent condition of the Volume itself. The dustjacket with some staining. With the very important preface to the second edition in which Miles gives his opinion on the longevity of some of his own medical findings and his regret towards the tendency of his colleagues "to revert to less radical measures in the surgical treatment of the rectum". Extremely rare, rather scarce and very sought after publication ! William Ernest Miles (15 January 1869 - 24 September 1947) was an English surgeon known for the Miles' operation: an abdomino-perineal excision for rectal cancer.nnSources differ as to whether Miles was born in Trinidad or in Uppingham, England. He received his medical education at St Bartholomew's Hospital, from where he graduated in 1891. At age 25, he became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.nnFormerly, surgery for rectal cancer was by perineal excision, which was less efficient in removing neoplastic tissue but easier to perform and carried less risks for the patient. Miles studied the reasons for recurrence following perineal resection and showed that many cases involved the upwards spread of cancer. His approach was to combine surgery via the perineum with surgery from above the cancer via the abdomen, known as abdomino-perineal resection. Miles perfected this technique over a number of years from 1907,eventually achieving long term remissions and gaining the acceptance of other surgeons. Miles' operation became the gold standard for surgical treatment of rectal cancer. (Wikipedia)

        Of Human Bondage (Original screenplay for the 1946 film, presentation copy belonging to actress Alexis Smith)

      Warner Brothers, Burbank, CA 1944 - Second Revised Final script for the 1946 film. Presentation copy belonging to actress Alexis Smith, with her initials in decorative gilt on the front board, bound in full calf. Throughout the script are 5 black-and-white film stills on tipped-in leaves, all featuring Smith and costar, Paul Henreid.Based on W. Somerset Maugham's classic 1915 novel, about a forlorn artist in France who gives up the trade to become a doctor. Philip Cary (Henreid), the artist, meets Mildred Rogers (Eleanor Parker), a waitress, and becomes dreadfully infatuated, in spite of the waitress' complete disregard for him. Eventually the waitress' charms wane and Cary reconnects with a beautiful young writer, Nora Nesbitt (Smith), and their romance flourishes--until Mildred Rogers returns, pregnant and in need. First adapted to film in 1934, directed by John Cromwell, and starring Leslie Howard and Bette Davis, the novel was also adaptated in 1964 by Ken Hughes, starring Kim Novak and Laurence Harvey, and has been adapted several times for television. Brown full sheepskin boards with gilt titles. Distribution page present, receipt intact.

        Melody Limited (Original manuscript treatment for an unproduced film, with brief notations by Wright)

      N.p.: N.p., 1944. Original manuscript treatment for an unproduced film by Richard Wright. Ribbon copy typescript, with Wright's name and the name and address of noted composer and arranger of Negro spirituals, Jester Hairston, on the first page in holograph ink in Wright's hand. With a foreword and a three page "Basis for Story" by Wright discussing the historical context and thematic goals for the production. A lengthy and fully developed treatment of the story, with settings and actions described in paragraph form and the dialogue broken out and labeled by character. During the 1940s, Wright became interested in film as a means to bring the African American experience to white audiences, and help bridge the gap of understanding between the races, using the story of the Fisk Jubilee Singer's 1871 tour, where they helped popularize Negro spirituals among northern white audiences, as an example. Wright tried unsuccessfully to get the film made, at one point even forming his own short lived production company. Loose leaves, text on rectos only, 104 pages. Typed. Very Good to Near Fine. Pages lightly toned, with occasional silverfish damage, mostly at the edges, still quite supple.

        Normandy Invasion D-Day Landing archive: Liberty Ship’s log, photograph album, and assorted ephemera

      France and the United Kingdom, Primarily 1944. This collection of material was authored/compiled by a Signalman aboard the American Liberty Ship, S.S. William A. Jones. It contains a “Signal Log” kept by George A. Lille and William E. Mixon, a photograph album, General Eisenhower’s D-Day Letter, the transcript of the 5 May 1945 message announcing that although reports of a formal German surrender were premature, “Fuehrer Karl Donitz . . . read [an order] over the Flensburg Radio” that ended all offensive U-boat operations, a 1990s mimeograph guide and postcards from the Normandy invasion site, and a magazine clipping announcing the end of the Navy’s Signalman (SM) rating in 2003. All of the items are in nice shape. The front cover and first two leaves are little loose and have been reinforced with now-yellowed cello tape. Eisenhower’s invasion letter has folding creases and an ink annotation at the top margin reading, “June 6, 1944.” The photograph album (5” x 8”) contains 55 pages with 109 4.5” x 3.25” photographs of convoy operations, firing practice, and life aboard ship. The highlights are 29 images of the Normandy Invasion including the ship at anchor on D-Day +1, allied soldiers and equipment on board awaiting landing craft, warships off the coast, Sherman tanks being off-loaded and going ashore, tanks advancing up Gold beach, sunken vessels used as a breakwater, a ship laying smoke, etc. The signal log (5” x 8”) contains over 120 pages recording every signal sent or received by the Jones between 6 March and 7 September 1944 as well as 43 pages of narrative entries for the same dates. Highlights include: * June 7, 1944: Convoy left Southend 0545. 28 ships, speed 9 knots. . . .

As of 2016, no similar collections of D-Day naval material are in the trade, and neither ABPC of the Rare Book Hub contain any auction records.

This is a unique first-person record of one of the most significant events of the 20th century The William A. Jones was an active participant in the Normandy invasion. She left Firth-of-Forth, Scotland on June 6, 1944 transporting Canadian forces to Gold Beach. Following the initial invasion, the Jones returned to Britain and continued to shuttle forces to the beachhead until the end of July including elements of the British 43rd Wessex Division, which captured Mount Pincon, tying up two German panzer divisions and facilitated the breakout of the General Omar Bradley’s First United States Army which was then exploited by Lieutenant General George Patton’s newly formed Third United State Army.

Framed with the original air mail envelope addressed to Brown at his New York City gym, which Hemingway has inscribed in ink, "Ernest Hemingway, war correspondent."Undated letter listing Hemingway's address as "Ernest Hemingway, War Correspondent, PRO HQ ETOUSA, APO 887, c/o Postmaster New York, NY" reads in full: "Dear George: Have been very bad about not writing you pal but it is because am so damned busy all the time. First got conked on the head with that car going into the static water tank. That is a metal tank set in the road to hold reserve water in case of fires. It wasn't lighted and the driver hit it square and I went through the shatter-proof glass. Kept my head down and didn't even break my glasses but bunged up my good knee and one hand where I braced against it and and [sic] cut the head from above the left ear in a horse shoe shaped cut through that old scar and way back into the scalp straight back from that old scar. Doctor did a swell job; [f]ifty two stitches and there is no welt and it really does not look bad now the hair is grown out. But I lost about two quarts of blood and for a while thought might bleed out. I got out of the hospital four days after it happened by lying about no headache and feeling fine etc. but was awfully weak and wobbly. Had the last stitches out on the attack transport and the life there; no drinking; lots of good chow, salt air and finally lots of salt water on the head the day we went in with the assault boats cured it well. But if you would have seen me, with two bad legs going up and down those landing nets in the dark (we had to go over to another ship after lowering our own boats), you would have had a laugh. I couldn't do that landing net stuff in a heavy sea before I hurt my knees."After the landing, (have a piece on it in Colliers) came back here and wrote the story and since then have been attached to the R.A.F. and have had a chance to do quite a lot of flying. I like flying in the fast planes very much and often wonder why we used to pay out good money to hunt those animals in Africa when you can have this for nothing. Lately, though, my head doesn't feel good all of the time but I suppose that is natural after getting conked like that and not haveing a chance to rest and then workout and get in shape. But am surely grateful to you for putting me in shape so had a reserve to work on."Marty [Martha Gellhorn, Hemingway's third wife, who was also a writer and war correspondent] has gone to another front because on this front it it very hard for a woman correspondent to work."This is a wonderful town, rich and beautiful and I would like to be here some time in peace-time with lots of money. We will have to come over sometime."Take care of yourself kid and I can never thank you enough for how good you were to me. xxxxxx Bumby is okay. Heard from him a couple of weeks ago. The kids are at Cataloochee Ranch, Waynesville, North Carolina. You might write them you heard from me in case they do not get my letters. I wrote them to Key West and again to the ranch but I gave the letter to Marty to mail and more than likely she forgot the hell about it."If you read the piece in Colliers you will have pretty good idea about how it was going in to the beaches. Have some good stories to tell you when we get together again."Could. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Photograph album. WITH: Photographs of Abraham Lincoln

      1944 - (LINCOLN, Abraham) MESERVE, Frederick Hill. Photograph album. WITH: Photographs of Abraham Lincoln. No place, no date; New York: Harcourt Brace, 1944. Loose album sheets (9 by 12 inches) featuring 191 photographic images. Housed in a cloth four-fold portfolio binder. WITH: Octavo, original navy cloth, original dust jacket. $22,000.Extraordinary album comprising over 191 photographs, primarily silver and platinum prints, of Abraham Lincoln, his family, and contemporaries assembled by Frederick Meserve. Accompanied by the first trade edition of Meserve's landmark work, accomplished in collaboration with Carl Sandburg, Photographs of Abraham Lincoln, featuring 100 images of the 16th President, in daguerreotypes, cartes-de-visite, stereoviews, and more by photographers including Matthew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and Alexander Hesler.Photographer "Frederick Hill Meserve was an important collector of Lincoln photographs. Sandburg asserts". that 'it is quite probable that certain Lincoln photographs would not have come to light but for Meserve'" (University of Illinois). This unbound photograph album appears to confirm that assertion. In 191 photographs, some of which bear penciled identification in Meserve's hand, Meserve carefully creates a tableau of Lincoln's life in portraiture, capturing both Lincoln and his social circle""the friends, acquaintances, political figures, and social reformers who shaped him. The photographs, primarily silver and platinum prints, each measure 2-1/4 by 3-1/2 inches, and are inserted into double-sided loose album pages, which are housed in a cloth portfolio. The first portion of the album, hand-numbered from 1-100 in pencil, featured 94 portraits of Lincoln arranged chronologically. The subsequent pages house an additional 91 images, which include additional portraits of Lincoln, as well as Mary Todd Lincoln, Robert Todd Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth, John Brown, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Stephen Douglas, Jefferson Davis, General Grant, General Sherman, President Hayes, and many other luminaries of the period. The purpose of the album is unclear, but it may have served as a working set of prints used by Meserve as he prepared the first volume of Photographs of Abraham Lincoln for publication. In 1911, Frederick Hill Meserve privately published his landmark work, Photographs of Abraham Lincoln, featuring 100 photographs of the 16th President that he had collected over many years including daguerreotypes, cartes-de-visite, stereoviews, and other formats by photographers such as Matthew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and Alexander Hesler. Meserve published additional volumes over the ensuing years featuring other portraits of Lincoln and his associates, an endeavor that coincided with the growth of his personal photograph collection, which grew to over 70,000 pieces. It was only recently acquired by the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale. This trade edition of Photographs of Abraham Lincoln is preceded by numerous privately printed editions and privately printed supplements that commenced publication in 1911. Album extremely good, with mild toning to page edges and a few corners torn, some photographs lightly silvered. An exceptional photographic archive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Kirchstetten, 21. XII. 1944.

      1944. 3 SS. auf 3 Bll. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Freund (d. i. der spätere Verlagslektor Hans Rössner): "Die beiden neuen Bücher ['Dokumente des Herzens' und 'Gedichte'] sind längst abgesetzt, ich konnte mit einiger Sicherheit auf ihr Erscheinen vor Weihnachten rechnen. Leider schweigt sich der Verlag [d. i. Langen-Müller] über das Schicksal der Bücher [...] aus. Man gibt mir [...] großmütig 200 RM im Monat, meine gewöhnliche Honorarrate. Wie stellen sich die Herren das vor? Du hast mein Haus gesehn. Du kannst Dir denken, daß ein solcher Besitz mit einem Bettel von 200 RM nicht in Ordnung gehalten werden kann, abgesehen davon, daß wir ja auch zum Leben für uns und die Haustiere etwas brauchen. Der Verlag hat doch gewiß schön an mir verdient. Es wäre seine moralische Pflicht, mich in Zeiten der Not nicht im Stich zu lassen. Dementgegen stellt sich der Verlag auf einen stur merkantilen Standpunkt. Als ich von hier aus zum Schanzen bestimmt wurde (das ist mittlerweile durch die Einziehung in den Volkssturm illusorisch geworden) habe ich den Verlag um Geld gebeten [...] Darauf hat man mir großzügig - 500 RM, also das Monatssalär eines mittleren Beamten, geschickt. Da geh Du hin und wälze die Gedanken des Abendlandes! Im übrigen glaube ich fest an die echte Abendländische Mission Adolf Hitlers. Wenn jetzt amerikanische und russische Analphabeten vorgeben, das Abendland vor uns 'Barbaren' retten zu müssen, so ist das doch der blödeste propagandistische Schwindel, der je ausgeheckt wurde. Wo ist in der Gegenwart bei denen eine derart geschlossene geistige Gestalt wie die meine, die mit allem Mut zur Konsequenz (Adel und Untergang) das Abendländische zusammenfassend aufgezeigt und beschworen hat?! Ich spüre wie es bei mir wieder aufwärts geht. Nur jetzt nicht nachlassen! Die drüben haben sich die Kriegsweihnachten 44 jedenfalls anders vorgestellt! [...] Hier haben wir die Bestien jeden Tag. Erst vorgestern griffen sie ein Gut in unserer Nähe an, auch auf die Bahntrasse haben sie es jetzt sichtlich abgesehen [...] Heil Hitler [...]". - Bl. 1 rechts oben mit rotem Farbstift vom Adressaten ebenso markiert wie die Sätze "Im übrigen glaube ich fest an die echte Abendländische Mission Adolf Hitlers" (Bl. 2) und "Ich spüre wie es bei mir wieder aufwärts geht. Nur jetzt nicht nachlassen! Die drüben haben sich die Kriegsweihnachten 44 jedenfalls anders vorgestellt!" (Bl. 3) sowie die Grußzeile; Bll. 2 und 3 rechts oben korrekt vom Autor numeriert.

        Wag-by-Wall.

      Boston: The Horn Book, Inc., 1944 - Small quarto. Original brown and white cloth, titles to front cover red, pictorial label to front cover, red patterned endpapers, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom white cloth folding case. A fine copy in the jacket with a couple of shallow chips to extremities and short closed tear to front panel. Portrait frontispiece and woodcut decorations by J. J. Lankes. First edition in book form, first printing. A limited edition of 100 copies was published in the UK, likely simultaneously, though the exact date is unknown. Potter originally conceived the story "as a pendant to The Tailor of Gloucester – the lonely old man and the lonely old woman, but I could never finish it." It was first written in 1909 under the title "The Little Black Kettle". Potter picked up the unfinished story again in 1929 and rewrote it, intending it as part of Fairy Caravan, but the story was not included in the final text. In 1940, editor Bertha Mahony Miller asked for a story to print in the Horn Book Magazine and Potter set to re-writing the story yet again. Miller was so pleased with the story she decided to hold it for their 20th anniversary edition, where it was finally published in May 1944. Beatrix Potter had died in December 1943, aged 77, and never saw it published. Linder, p. 432; Quinby 32. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Reinhard Heydrich. Ein Leben der Tat

      Prag, Volk und Reich Verlag, 1944. (noch zu Nr.22640:) . . . \"Unsere Aufgabe sehe ich unter der Parole: \"Feind allen Feinden und Hüter alles Deutschen\" - Mit zeittypischen Beiträgen wie z.B.: (über die Lage in der Tschechei beim Amtsantritt des Reichsprotektors) \"Eine illegale militärische und politische Organisation, ausgerüstet mit den modernen Kampfmittel des Terrors und der Sabotage, schickte sich an, führungsmäßig und propagandistisch Einfluss auf die Massen zu gewinnen. Diese Widerstandsbewegung verfügte nicht nur über den durch Kurzwellensender hergestellten engsten Kontakt zur Londoner Emigrantenregierung; sie besaß vielmehr in dem Ministerpräsidenten der autonomen Regierung einen geheimen Mitwisser und Förderer, der sich nicht gescheut hatte, durch Verpfändung seines Offiziers-Ehrenwortes dem Reichsprotektor Ergebenheit und Treue vorzutäuschen, während er mit dem Anschlag gegen das Reich im Bunde war. Die Front des aktiven Widerstandes und der passiven Resistenz zog sich von der höchsten Spitze der autonomen Regierung über die Minister bis herunter zu den Schleichhändlern, Schiebern, Saboteuren und Juden. Die Methode, mit der Heydrich die gefährlichsten Gegner in wenigen Tagen, den gesamten illegalen Apparat in weniger als drei Wochen traf und vernichtete, ließ bereits den politischen Instinkt erkennen, mit dem er über die Notwendigkeit einer exekutiven Bereinigung hinaus Maßnahmen anordnete. Einem außenstehenden Beobachter mag in diesen Wochen, abgesehen von den Sperrstundenbeschränkungen, kaum der Gedanke gekommen sein, daß er Zeuge der Niederschlagung eines planmäßig vorbereiteten Aufstandsversuches war. Es sind weder Verbände der Wehrmacht oder der Polizei marschiert, noch kam es zu bewaffneten Zusammenstößen. Heydrichs Schlag richtete sich auch nicht gegen die Menge der Mitläufer, die nur das Produkt illegaler Verhetzung waren. Er griff sich die Köpfe des Anschlags und damit die Hauptschädlinge, allerdings ohne Rücksicht auf den Rang der von ihnen bekleideten staatlichen Ämter. Das Ergebnis des Prozesses gegen den Ministerpräsidenten Elias, dessen umfangreiches Geständnis sowie die standgerichtlichen Verfahren gegen eine Anzahl von Generalen und Offizieren der ehemaligen tschechoslowakischen Armee, gegen hohe Ministerialbeamte bis herunter zu kleinen unbelehrbaren Fanatikern, bewiesen die Treffsicherheit des Zugriffs. Da sich der Jude auch im Rahmen dieser Widerstandsarbeit als der Bazillus jeder politischen Destruktion erwiesen hatte, wurde gleichzeitig auch diese Frage mit aller Konsequenz aufgegriffen und die Kenntlichmachung der Juden und ihre Unterbringung in Gettos verfügt. Nach wenigen Wochen konnte nicht nur die Sofort-Aufgabe gelöst und die ernste Gefährdung der Sicherheit beseitigt werden, sondern es gelang darüber hinaus trotz der Härte der Maßnahmen . . .\" / \"Ihr Mädels und Maiden! Ihr habt heute Abend in Wort und Lied einen Querschnitt aufgezeigt durch all das, was Ihr mit Euren Kräften für den Führer und das deutsche Volk im Kriege mitzuhelfen imstande seid. Manch verwöhntes Püppchen hat in Eurer Gemeinschaft arbeiten und Sinn der Arbeit verstehen gelernt und ist ein ordentliches, deutsches Mädel geworden. Gerade auf diesem kämpferischen und geschichtlich bedeutsamen Boden Böhmen und Mährens erscheint es mir richtig, jene Grundsätze aufzuzeigen, deren innerste Erkenntnis die Voraussetzung ist nicht nur für Eure Leistung, sondern für die Zukunft der deutschen Jugend überhaupt. In früheren Zeiten war die Jugend zunächst oft oberflächlich, vergnügungssüchtig und gegenüber den Problemen der Zukunft des Volkes und Reiches reichlich gleichgültig.
