        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.

        Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings - SIGNED SCORE & PROGRAM

      Boosey & Hawkes, London 1944 - Miniature score to the important English composer's Serenade, op. 31, signed on the title page by both Britten and Peter Pears, his lifelong companion and the tenor who first performed the work. Dated May 1954 with an ownership signature on the inside front cover. [PN] 8934. 38 pp. Some light overall toning, but otherwise in fine condition. 5.5 x 7.5 inches (13.5 x 18.7 cm). Together with an original program from a 1955 performance of Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings with Peter Pears and horn player Dennis Brain, for whom the piece was composed in 1943. The program, with the Scottish National Orchestra under Karl Rankl, also included Mozart's Horn Concerto no. 3, Mozart arias, and Beethoven's Symphony no. 8. Dated January 21, 1955. A few small scuffs; overall in fine condition. 15 pp. 5.5 x 8.5 inches (13.8 x 21.5 cm)."There was a lull in Britten's flow of composition around this time [1942-50], owing partly to a serious attack of measles for which he was in hospital and then off work in March and April 1943. Several projects were abandoned, but during the months he was resting he composed, at Snape, the Serenade for tenor, horn and strings. In this work he invented his own kind of shadowed pastoralism, not the ideal England of the folksong composers but a place in which the worm finds the bud and a darker side of medieval experience is explored (in the Lyke Wake Dirge); the high ostinato that is also the strophic vocal line enabled a particularly fruitful orchestral dialogue to suggest deeper levels to this poem." (Philip Brett/Heather Wiebe, New Grove.)

        La Decoración Mural del Pabellón Martirene de la Colonia Saint Bois

      Asociación de Arte Constructivo 1944 - Consta de 16 carillas y de 10 carillas con fotografías en blanco y negro de algunos murales. En la tapa hay una foto del Pabellón Martirené, donde se aprecian en su arquitectura, las señas de la modernidad de la época. (Arq. Luis Surraco y Sara Morialdo). Contribuciones escritas en la publicación: Esther de Cáceres. (Poeta y escritora de relevancia en el Uruguay) - Carmelo de Arzadum: (Pintor de larga trayectoria) - Dr. Alfredo Cáceres. (Médico de gran prestigio) - Dr. Pablo Purriel (Director del hospital) - Arq. Juan R. Menchaca (Arquitecto) - Prof. Guido Castillo (Escritor y poeta) - Esta publicación Torres García explicita, en un recorrido que va desde la prehistoria, pasando por las grandes civilizaciones de Occidente hasta los momentos actuales. Y digo momentos actuales porque si bien la publicación es de 1944 o sea han pasado 72 años, desde el momento que la escribió.la mirada de Torres hacia el pasado antiguo, moderno y contemporáneo tiene una vigencia total. Las valoraciones, análisis, conclusiones, de gran condensación de conceptos, sobre lo que preocupa o debería de preocupar a los artistas, mantienen un vigor y una certeza insoslayables. Torres detalla aquí el valor de la decoración Mural y su poderosa conexión con la Arquitectura. Palabras de Torres García "El problema de la decoración mural forma cuerpo, en unidad perfecta, con la arquitectura: y esto en cualquier sentido. ¿Se ha considerado bien esto, aquí entre nosotros, y tanto por parte de los pintores como de los escultores y arquitectos? Rotundamente hay que decir que no. Es más: no se ha intentado siquiera. Y la prueba es, de que no hay ni un solo ensayo en tal sentido. Si se dice pues, que todo está por hacer, incluso una teoría para llevarlo a cabo, no se exagera". Joaquín Torres-García, Universalismo Constructivo, Lección 119: Nuestro problema de decoración mural, 1944".

        Un roman de Jarry. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit signé complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats) 1944 - - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1944), 13,5x21,5cm & 2 pages in-4, 2 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 2 pages et demie in-8 publié dans le numéro du 13 avril 1944 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit recto-verso complet, à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreux ratures, corrections et ajouts. On joint le tapuscrit signé complet. Chronique parue à l'occasion de la publication du roman posthume de Jarry, La Dragonne. Dans cette chronique consacrée à Alfred Jarry et au Père Ubu, Maurice Blanchot s'intéresse à la confusion de l'un avec l'autre et à ses conséquences : « [.] on peut penser que Jarry, en s'entêtant à être le Père Ubu, a pendant sa vie gaspillé une partie de ses ressources d'écrivain et après sa mort égaré le jugement littéraire sur sa véritable valeur. » Pourtant, cette confusion témoigne de la cohérence de l'auteur : « Chez Jarry, le choix d'un masque aussi peu flatteur a un sens fort clair. Il y a d'abord une volonté de mettre à mal tout sérieux et particulièrement cette volonté même ; il n'est pas question de tracer des frontières au ridicule ; on rit d'abord de soi, on en rit parce que ce rire n'est qu'un écho du vide. Et puis ce double grotesque que l'auteur revendique comme une représentation dont il est fier, affirme sa complicité, pleine de défi, avec les travers qu'il caricature. » La Dragonne, dernière œuvre du père d'Ubu que Gallimard publie alors, étonnera donc Blanchot pour « le sérieux avec lequel Jarry a accepté son métier de romancier », qui louera également « les soudains mouvements d'imagination poétique qui dérangent le plan ». Unique texte monographique consacré par Blanchot à Jarry. Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au cœur même d'un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l'écho de l'impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (.) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d'une œuvre qui commence (.) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d'un critique qui a transformé l'occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d'une grande rareté.

        AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED together with a carbon copy of a WORLD WAR TWO TYPED LETTER OF COMMENDATION SIGNED in INK by COLONEL BRUCE C. CLARKE, who was later promoted to General.

      Headquarters Combat Command "A", Fourth Armoved Division, October 12th & 17th, 1944.. 1944.. Very good. - A 2-page letter of commendation densely typed in carbon on two 10-5/8 inch high by 8 inch wide sheets of onion skin paper. Annotated as a "Memo", the letter is addressed to "All units that have served with CC "A" during period 31 July 44 to date", Colonel Bruce C. Clarke writes that "Upon this headquarters reverting to support status today, after 75 consecutive days in the command of troops in the front, I wish to express to the officers and men of the units it has been my privilege to command in battle my appreciation for a good job well done. You have accomplished seemingly impossible missions and have made history of which you and yours and our Nation are and will be proud...." Colonel Clarke goes on to elaborately detail 9 particular battles where the 4th Armored Division has distinguished itself, the first being a "Move through Avranches at 1500, 31 July and the breaking out in four columns with tanks leading and by midnight the capture of 4 bridges and dams across the Duay River which made possible the pouring through of the Third Army for the Brest Peninsula Campaign". He goes on to list several events including "The move to and taking of Troyes by a combined direct and encircling attack against 3000 Germans 25 August. The assault on the city led by Lt. Col. West, using tanks and armored infantry in close formation, was a classic example of the close cooperation of Tanks and Infantry". He goes on to relate the establishment of the Nancy Bridgehead following the crossing of the Moselle onf August 13th, describing that "Holding the ground gained required the fighting of the greatest Tank vs Tank Battles of this war wherein Lt. Col. Abrams and the 37th Tank Bn and Co 'C' of the 704 TD particularly distinguished themselves...." He concludes with a list of substantial enemy losses compared to the comparatively small losses suffered by American troops. Signed "Bruce C. Clarke" in ink at the bottom of the second page. <p>An AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED by BRUCE C. CLARKE is stapled to the top of the letter. The note, penciled on a 6 inch high by 4 inch wide sheet of "Fourth Armored Division, Headquarters Combat Command" memorandum stationery personalized with "Bruce C. Clarke / Colonel, Corps of Engineers, Commanding" printed at the bottom, is dated October 17, 1944. The note, simply addressed to "Ralph", simply relates that "This might be of interest", closing with "Regards" and signed "Bruce". Several annotations and initials, apparently from those who have read the note and attached commendation, are present on the note. The note is stapled along the top to the letter of commendation with punch holes along the top edges. Both the letter and the note are folded. There is a crease to the top right corner of the first page of the letter and staple holes as well as a small chip to the top right corner of the second page.<p>Wonderful historical material with superb content.<p>A career officer, General Bruce C. Clarke (1901-1988) served in the first and second World Wars as well as the Korean War. He Commanded the U.S. Army, Pacific from December 1954 to April 1956. He was commander of the Continental Army Command from 1958 through 1960 and subsequently served as Commander, U.S. Army Europe from 1960 through 1962. As a Colonel and subsequently Brigadier General in the Second World War, he commanded Combat Command A ("CCA") of the 4th Armored Division of General Patton's Third Army. In 1944, he led his troops to victory over superior German armored forces at the Battle of Arracourt. Later in December, he led the relief of St. Vith during the Battle of the Bulge, slowing the German attack. His actions were credited by General Eisenhower as the turning point in the battle. General Clarke commanded the I Corps and the X Corps during the Korean War and trained the First Republic of Korea's Army. He held several commands during peace time and, a Mason, he was awarded the third highest Masonic award, the Grand Cross of the Court of Honor by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite for the Southern Jurisdiction.

        To Juan At The Winter Solstice

      Np Privately Printed 1944 - 178 x 131mm, pp. 4. Single sheet, folded once. Sunned at the leading edge and with a little foxing inside and out. Old horizontal fold, with small tear just starting at leading edge. First edition, INSCRIBED BY GRAVES ON THE FRONT LEAF: 'Honor with love from Robert. New Year 1945'. The recipient was the journalist Honor Wyatt, a member of the Graves-Riding inner circle at Deya. Graves' son Juan had been born on 22nd December 1944 -- the winter solstice -- and this poem was circulated to close family and friends to celebrate his arrival. It was later anthologised in Graves' Poems 1938-1945 [Cassell, 1946]. The handwritten correction to l. 17 is present on every copy we have examined, and is presumed to be by Graves himself. The exact limitation is unknown but very few copies were printed, destined as they were for Graves' intimate circle only. Rare.

Miniature score to the important English composer's Serenade, op. 31, signed on the title page by both Britten and Peter Pears, his lifelong companion and the tenor who first performed the work. Dated May 1954 with an ownership signature on the inside front cover. [PN] 8934. 38 pp. Some light overall toning, but otherwise in fine condition. 5.5 x 7.5 inches (13.5 x 18.7 cm). Together with an original program from a 1955 performance of Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings with Peter Pears and horn player Dennis Brain, for whom the piece was composed in 1943. The program, with the Scottish National Orchestra under Karl Rankl, also included Mozart's Horn Concerto no. 3, Mozart arias, and Beethoven's Symphony no. 8. Dated January 21, 1955. A few small scuffs; overall in fine condition. 15 pp. 5.5 x 8.5 inches (13.8 x 21.5 cm).<br style=""><br style="">"There was a lull in Britten's flow of composition around this time [1942-50], owing partly to a serious attack of measles for which he was in hospital and then off work in March and April 1943. Several projects were abandoned, but during the months he was resting he composed, at Snape, the Serenade for tenor, horn and strings. In this work he invented his own kind of shadowed pastoralism, not the ideal England of the folksong composers but a place in which the worm finds the bud and a darker side of medieval experience is explored (in the Lyke Wake Dirge); the high ostinato that is also the strophic vocal line enabled a particularly fruitful orchestral dialogue to suggest deeper levels to this poem."

        FOREVER AMBER

      1944 - WINSOR, Kathleen. FOREVER AMBER. NY: The Macmillan Company, 1944. 8vo., green cloth in dust jacket; 972 pages. First Edition, first printing (so stated). Adapted into a successful 1948 movie, the 972-page novel was edited down to one-fifth of the manuscript Winsor originally presented to the publisher. Condemned for blatant sexual references, 14 states banned the book as pornography. Despite its ban, "Forever Amber" was the best-selling U.S. novel of the 1940s, selling more than 100,000 copies in its first week of release and eventually selling more than three million. Signed by Winsor on verso of the front endpaper. I have noted two variant dust jackets but I have little information to offer about them. This dust jacket, which is uncommonly fragile, is entirely printed in black- both text & the photograph on the rear cover. It is my experience that this is the more common dust jacket (the other is entirely printed in blue) but, if it is the earliest one, I do not know. Very Good (little wear covers; contents clean & tight); some edgewear (small chips & tears; price-clipped) d/j. $750.00. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Berlin, Oberkommando des Heeres; Breslau, Brehmer & Minuth., 1944.. Octavo. Pp. 230. Text figures, tables, model forms, notations space. Original printed wrappers, spine bit frayed in places, old institutional stamp to title. In about fine condition. Excellent copy, practically unused, some leaves still unopened. ~ First edition. Extremely scarce. One of the rarest of all Wehrmacht H.Dv. publications. An indispensable source of information on military educational cinematography used during WW II. Divided into two main parts, the book is a guide to the principles of the making and the use of cinematography for military education, and a catalogue of all such available films used by the Wehrmacht at the time of publication. The greatest part of the book, some 200 pages, comprises of a very detailed catalogue of all Wehrmacht educational films, divided into several subject- and search groups. It lists in considerable detail hundreds of films and image series by title, subject, category, date, duration, etc. with a brief but comprehensive description of the contents. Length of films in meter and minutes is given, as well as variations of small- and large formats. Extensive categorizing system is applied with cross references. There are chapters dedicated to all films for the use of individual Military Branches: infantry, artillery, pioneers and field engineers, armour, signal corps, supply and logistics, smoke and gas defence, railway pioneers, sanitary, technical troops, etc. Films for special circumstances such as mountain war, winter war, desert and steppe war, etc. General military education films such as military history, espionage, antiaircraft defense. And miscellaneous films such as politics, current international affairs, foreign armies, science, etc. The material is listed by title and subject as well as by item number. The first part of the book is an introduction of the principles, terms, technique, and implementation of image and film in military education. It is clearly intended for the use of rank officers who might commission or use such a film. This part explains the essence of combining words and images, story board, wall- and table displays, photography, principles of projection of transparencies, working on light table, editing and montage, the various film sizes i.e. 16mm, 35mm, and medium- and large formats, motion picture, sound, etc. It later discusses the implementation of the film in education, the projection room, design and production of films and slideshows, managing an archive, etc. etc. Issued for the use of the higher echelon at the regimental level, this guide has been published in a limited number of copies. Hardly any survived. OCLC locates a single holding in Germany, that in Universität der Bundeswehr München.

Original printed boards, yellow endpapers, spiral bound. An important work from two of the great pioneers in the fields of information design and information architecture. "For a wide range of American businesses, Sutnar developed graphic systems that clarified vast amounts of complex information, transforming business data into digestible units. He was the man responsible for putting the parentheses around American telephone area-code numbers when they were first introduced" (AIGA National Design Center). An émigré to America in 1923, Lonberg-Holm was a fundamental correspondent with prominent European architects and their modernist counterparts in the U.S. The exhibition will feature a selection of letters to Lonberg-Holm from a pantheon of the European avant-garde including László Moholy-Nagy, Walter Gropius, Theo Van Doesburg, Buckminster Fuller, Hannes Meyer, J.J.P. Oud, El Lissitzky, and Richard Neutra. "Beginning in the late 1930s, Lönberg-Holm was the Director of Research for Sweet's Catalog Service, a division of F.W. Dodge Corporation in New York. Then as now, Sweet's was a clearing house for trade and industry catalogs selling common and arcane building, plumbing, electrical, and other construction supplies, to architects, contractors, and craftsmen" (Steven Heller, 'The Graphic Design Reader,' 1999).
