SITWELL, Osbert
Macmillan -1950, 1945. Five volumes, all first UK editions. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt titling and decoration to the spine. All in pictorial dustwrappers with pictorial endpapers featuring the author's handprints. Each volume inscribed by Sitwell to E. M. Forster "For Morgan" on the half-title, dated on publication sometimes with a short epithet "With affection and admiration" (vol 1), "whose only fault is his invisibility" (vol 3). Forster's bookplate to each volume. A near fine set, in very good to near fine dustwrappers. The first volume shows chips to the spine ends and corners and internal repairs to the spine joints of the dustwrapper. Small chips to the head of the spine of volume three. A magnificent association set. "Osbert Sitwell combines sensibility, humaneness, and the desire to write well. The strands of the aristocrat, who wants to lead, and the artist who wants to create are finely combined" E. M. Forster reviewing the first volume for BBC Eastern Service, May 1945. Forster was an acquaintance of Osbert Sitwell and his siblings, often meeting at social gatherings and poetry readings - one of which, in September 1943, was punctuated by a doodle-bug raid while Edith Sitwell read "Still Falls The Rain". Though friends, Forster remained on the periphery of the Sitwells and their literary set, perhaps earning the inscription of the third volume; "For Morgan, whose only fault is his invisibility".

1945. Oblong quarto. String-tied striped cloth over paper board measuring 11" x 9". Contains 123 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs with some captions in German measuring between 2" x 3.5" and 5" x 7". Slight toning and short tears else near fine with near fine photographs. A German family photo album spanning the years from 1930 to 1945. The album shows a variety of events and family members throughout the 15 years that are represented. People are shown posing in silly, lighthearted ways and are also captured in candids. There are also photos of a young man and woman on a motorcycle in 1930 and posing with their car. A handful of photos show the family on a trip of the S.S. Bremen in November of 1930. Later in the album hints of the gathering storm of World War II are scattered throughout. One photo shows a young Nazi soldier with a swastika armband standing at attention and reads, in English, "mom's brother," most likely written later. Another photo shows a small parade marching through town with soldiers and civilians holding up a swastika banner and one that reads, "Schumacher'sche fabrik" or "Schumacher's Factory." The album continues with group photos of smiling families celebrating holidays and enjoying the warmer months outside. It seems at some point they visited or immigrated to Aldenville, Pennsylvania because some of the later photos from 1945 are taken there. It is possible they were attempting to escape the war. A nice collection of German family images with ties to World War II. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

France, Germany, Belgium, 1945. Oblong folio. Measuring 15" x 11.5". String-tied cream-colored leather over stiff paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 123 sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 2" x 2.5" and 4.75" x 7", with some captions on the verso. Additionally included are cards, bank notes, military papers, and stamps. Very good album with some detached pages, chips, and tears with near fine photographs. A scrapbook and photo album kept by an army sergeant from Pennsylvania while serving with the Army Transportation Corps during World War II. He enlisted in 1944 and was eventually sent overseas in 1945, with the opening pages showing a certificate of his return to the United States in 1946 on the USAT *Wooster Victory* from Belgium. The page includes French Francs, an assignment card, a Belgium napkin, an Easter card from his father, and stamps from Belgium. The photos begin in France and show the sergeant visiting various landmarks around Paris including one with his company in front of the Eiffel Tower. He is also photographed with fellow soldiers, at their barracks, on transportation trains, and posed by vehicles including tanks. Other photos have the sergeant walking around the ruins of France and later Germany showing the remnants of buildings and landmarks destroyed by the war and by rows of crosses marking a grave site. Also featured throughout are local people and Catholic parade through a Belgium town.

Smyth, Henry D.
Washington D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1945. 1st edition (the pre-publication 1st issue) of the U. S. Military's official report on the Atomic Bomb. 1st printing of 1,000 (lithoprinted, 7 1/2" X 10") issued Aug. 12th, 1945 (Hiroshima was Aug. 6th), and then reprinted in an altered format. The correct 1st issue (serial no. 12867) with 3 leaves in chapter 9 on different paper (2 of them rectos only) and the confidential page, VI-12, listing details of plutonium production. This page was excised from many copies and replaced with a blank page, or no page, but the Soviet Union got a copy that had it, and it saved them from finding out for themselves that reactor bred plutonium was unusable in the gun-type trigger they were designing. Covers gone, neatly rebacked (secured by a small wedge of marbled paper), Naval Library stamps, else very good and otherwise complete, and not all copies are, because there was a hasty and impetuous rush to collate and assemble them. Despite the small printing and ephemeral nature, this item is not rare, questioning the evasive linguistic gyrations used to claim it's so by sellers not realizing they are makingthemselves seem as desperate as cannibals during a shortage of missionaries.

(IWO JIMA)
1945. (IWO JIMA). Perhaps the most famous World War II battle in the Pacific, Iwo Jima lasted for six weeks from February to March 1945. An estimated 110,000 American servicemen fought bitterly against 20,000 Japanese defenders to seize the small, volcanic island. ALS. 2pg. 6 ¼" x 9 ½". March 13, 1945. Iwo Jima, Volcano Island. An autograph letter signed "Byron" from Iwo Jima. He wrote to Nan Edith Payne (perhaps a relative) from the hellscape: "Dearest Nan Edith, I received your birthday card yesterday and want to thank you for remembering, but how you did it I don't know. It was certainly well done and clever, I think. I enjoyed it as much as I did the cute Christmas card. I don't know whether you are surprised or not upon learning that I was at Iwo. Several have made good guesses. I suspect you have read about the operation in the newspapers. There is not much that I can add. Sometime when I see you I'll tell you of some of my personal experiences i.e. getting fired at by a machine gun and having a couple of sniper's bullets come whizzing by. Another doctor and I share the same dugout and finally we have learned to get a fair night's rest lying on covers on the floor of our fox-hole. However, during the last two days I've caught a cold or am developing an allergy to dust, the former I hope. There is quite cool weather here. I've just finished evening chow and am sitting outside on a camp stool with an alpaca lined jacket on and I just feel comfortable. At night we sleep in our own clothes under three blankets.

Williams, Charles
Faber & Faber, 1945. First Edition. Hardcover. First printing, duodecimo size, 206 pp., in original dust jacket, in a custom chemise and slipcase. Fine / near fine. Charles Walter Stansby Williams (1886-1945), a companion of Lewis and Tolkien and a lecturer at Oxford, was a prolific writer, perhaps best remembered today for his fantasy novels which usually have strong Christian elements. T.S. Eliot wrote of William's novels: "[they are] 'supernatural thrillers' because they explore the sacramental intersection of the physical with the spiritual while also examining the ways in which power, even spiritual power, can corrupt as well as sanctify" (n.b., quote from Wiki). Williams first met C.S. Lewis when, each having read one of the others' books, each sent a note to the other which crossed in the mail; the two became life-long friends, with Lewis becoming one of Williams' most ardent admirers. Many believe that Lewis had Williams in mind as an inspiration for "That Hideous Strength" (published the same year as this work, 1945), the third of the three novels comprising Lewis' "Space Trilogy". "All Hallow's Eve", the last of Williams' novels to be published during his lifetime, can be considered an allegory in that "a primary purpose of the book is to illustrate Williams's particular mystical brand of Christianity." Many Christian themes are explored including redemption, substitution, and the release of the soul into the afterlife. However, it can also be enjoyed at a level not dependent upon those allegorical themes, for "[i]n it one finds the ambiguity of realistic fiction, … [Click Below for Full Description]

CILLEY, Charles D.
[Limburg, Germany, 1945. A series of eight pen and ink and watercolor drawings by Charles D. Cilley, an American sergeant with the 52nd Armored Infantry Division, depicting his wartime experience at a German POW camp after his capture during the Battle of the Bulge. All eight drawings are on paper sheets measuring about 12" x 9.5". Scattered old tape stains on the back edges, near fine. Though not numbered or captioned, the eight drawings chronicle the main events after Cilley's capture in December 1944, beginning with a drawing of an endless column of American GIs snaking its way through a cold winter landscape under a starry night. A second drawing shows prisoners being transported in railroad boxcars (one of which is marked "Deutschland Reichseisenbahn" or "German Railroad"): they are shown during a break while under guard, high up in a mountainous area on a clear day. Cilley and thousands of other American prisoners were sent to Stalag XIIA, a "notoriously bad" POW camp located in Diez, a small village on the Lahn River near Limburg, Germany. It was initially set up to serve as a transit camp, where newly captured prisoners were interrogated before being sent on to other better organized POW camps deeper inside of Germany. However, by the end of the war Stalag XIIA served both as a transit hub and makeshift permanent residence for prisoners captured on both the Eastern and Western Fronts, including many British and Russian soldiers, as well as Indian soldiers captured in North Africa. Cilley remained at Stalag XIIA until it was liberated by troops of the American 9th Ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Williams, Charles
Faber & Faber, London, 1945. First printing, duodecimo size, 206 pp., in original dust jacket, in a custom chemise and slipcase. Charles Walter Stansby Williams (1886-1945), a companion of Lewis and Tolkien and a lecturer at Oxford, was a prolific writer, perhaps best remembered today for his fantasy novels which usually have strong Christian elements. T.S. Eliot wrote of William's novels: "[they are] 'supernatural thrillers' because they explore the sacramental intersection of the physical with the spiritual while also examining the ways in which power, even spiritual power, can corrupt as well as sanctify" (n.b., quote from Wiki). Williams first met C.S. Lewis when, each having read one of the others' books, each sent a note to the other which crossed in the mail; the two became life-long friends, with Lewis becoming one of Williams' most ardent admirers. Many believe that Lewis had Williams in mind as an inspiration for "That Hideous Strength" (published the same year as this work, 1945), the third of the three novels comprising Lewis' "Space Trilogy". "All Hallow's Eve", the last of Williams' novels to be published during his lifetime, can be considered an allegory in that "a primary purpose of the book is to illustrate Williams's particular mystical brand of Christianity." Many Christian themes are explored including redemption, substitution, and the release of the soul into the afterlife. However, it can also be enjoyed at a level not dependent upon those allegorical themes, for "[i]n it one finds the ambiguity of realistic fiction, the development of complex characte … [Click Below for Full Description]

The following has been copies from a blog found at recoverycollectibles.com THE WARTIME BIG BOOK EDITION DEBACLE - 7TH & 8TH PRINTINGS February 16, 2020 • Alcoholics Anonymous • First Edition • History During World War II, The United States Government placed regulations on book printings. These regulations were put in place to conserve paper by limiting the size and weight of books. The Alcoholics Anonymous book was given the nickname "The Big Book" because Bill Wilson and Hank Parkhurst wanted to justify the cost of $3.50. Which at the time was almost unheard of for a book. Consequently, the printer began using thick paper with large margins to increase the size of the book, hence the name "The Big Book." Clearly, there was no need for such a large book for the amount of text that was inside. It obviously needed to be decreased in size. In January 1945, Alcoholics Anonymous started printing the "7th Printing" of the 1st Edition. It was intended for this printing to be smaller in size to conform to the government mandate but for some reason, this was never done. It is unknown exactly why … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morgenthau, Henry
Harper & Brothers, New York. B0006AQNBO Stated second edition apparently printed in 1945, as was the first edition. pp. xiii, [3], 239. Sm. 8vo. Index. Appendices. Four-page reproduction of a photographic copy of the memorandum summarizing "The Morgenthau Plan" which President Roosevelt took to the historic Quebec conference in September of 1944. Fold-out two-color map entitled "Proposal for Post-War German Boundaries". The infamous Morgenthau Plan charted a course for Germany post WWII intended to revert it to a pastoral state. Senator Henrick Shipstead denounced it as "America's eternal monument of shame, for the destruction of the German people." - Congressional Record, Senate, May 15, 1946, p.5039. Morgenthau's "punishment policy deeply betrayed the will of the American people against indiscriminate vengeance, which had been demonstrated in the nationwide condemnation of the Morgenthau Plan." - James Bacque, Other Losses, p.158. "The Morgenthau Plan would wipe out everything in Germany except land, and the Germans would have to live on the land. Thus only 60 percent of the population could support themselves and the other 40 percent would die." - The Memoirs of Cordell Hull, p.1617. When word of this ominous plan leaked to Goebbels in the latter stages of WWII he exploited it to stiffen German resistance, thus extending the war and adding to the American casualty count. Considerable criticism was brought to bear upon Morgenthau as a result. Clean and unmarked with moderate wear to navy blue cloth. Binding sound.

Refugees] Eskelund, Paula & Schiff
Hwa Kuo Printing Co, (Shanghai), 1945. Oblong 8vo, unpag.; sewn with red cord in printed card wrappers. A lighthearted examination from a postwar vantage, illustrated with cartoon drawings, of the life of refugees in Shanghai during the war years. Thousands of European refugees, many of them Jews, had sought safety in the relative freedom of Shanghai when war broke out at home, but they were trapped there once the city fell to Japan. Confined to a restricted "ghetto" area for the duration of the war, they thus survived the Holocaust. This is a cheaply produced volume, subject to severe wear, offering a rare glimpse into a lesser-known aspect of the conflict. Small chips to lower corners; small stain on rear wrapper; wrappers evenly toned, though leaving a ghost-image on the rear from a bookend. Despite these flaws, an excellent copy of a delicate publication. [Attributes: First Edition]

Morgenthau, Henry
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1945. New York: Harper & Brothers. Hardcover. B0006AQNBO Stated second edition apparently printed in 1945, as was the first edition. pp. xiii, [3], 239. Sm. 8vo. Index. Appendices. Four-page reproduction of a photographic copy of the memorandum summarizing "The Morgenthau Plan" which President Roosevelt took to the historic Quebec conference in September of 1944. Fold-out two-color map entitled "Proposal for Post-War German Boundaries". The infamous Morgenthau Plan charted a course for Germany post WWII intended to revert it to a pastoral state. Senator Henrick Shipstead denounced it as "America's eternal monument of shame, for the destruction of the German people." - Congressional Record, Senate, May 15, 1946, p.5039. Morgenthau's "punishment policy deeply betrayed the will of the American people against indiscriminate vengeance, which had been demonstrated in the nationwide condemnation of the Morgenthau Plan." - James Bacque, Other Losses, p.158. "The Morgenthau Plan would wipe out everything in Germany except land, and the Germans would have to live on the land. Thus only 60 percent of the population could support themselves and the other 40 percent would die." - The Memoirs of Cordell Hull, p.1617. When word of this ominous plan leaked to Goebbels in the latter stages of WWII he exploited it to stiffen German resistance, thus extending the war and adding to the American casualty count. Considerable criticism was brought to bear upon Morgenthau as a result. Clean and unmarked with moderate wear to navy blue cloth. Binding soun … [Click Below for Full Description]
