      (noch zu Nr.19083:) . . . an der eigenen Rasse. - Die Familie ist der heilige Hort deutscher Kraft, der Urquell alles Lebens.

Die nationalsozialistische Rassenlehre und Rassengesetzgebung ist die Anwendung des uralten und ewig wahren ungeschriebenen Gesetzes der Natur, daß der Stärkere siegt und seine Art ewig lebt, daß aber der Schwächling untergehen und im Wege der Auslese erliegen muss. Es war daher die Aufgabe des nationalsozialistischen Gesetzgebers, durch den Erlass einer dieser einen naturgegebenen und geschichtlich erhärteten ewigen Wahrheit entsprechenden Gesetzgebung, das deutsche Blut vor fremdrassiger Vermischung zu schützen, festzulegen wer Deutscher, Mischling oder Jude ist, und die Erbgesundheit des deutschen Blutes durch Verhinderung erbkranker Ehen zu sichern, und damit durch gesetzlichen Zwang eine weitere Schädigung des Volkskörpers zu unterbinden . . .

        [Scrapbook]: World War II Air Force Pilot and POW Album

      Oregon, Texas, 1945. Very Good. Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 15". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "The Ideal Scrapbook" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 35 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 2.5" and 6" x 10" with captions, as well as 193 letters, 16 newspaper clippings, 3 pictorial postcards, and various military ephemera. Photo album is good with detached pages, spotting, and tears with near fine photos and letters with occasional tears.A scrapbook kept by First Lieutenant Richard "Dick" H. Spooner and his mother, Ruth, while Richard was serving with the 8th Air Force during World War II between 1943 and 1945. Spooner wrote his mother often beginning with his basic training and continuity through his shipment overseas, all discussed in just under 200 letters he composed to her during the war. Many of the letters are on military letterhead including Spooner's Air Force stationary as well as various bases. Originally from Oregon, Spooner joined the war effort in 1943 and attended the San Antonio Aviation Cadet training center. There he took classes and underwent exams to determine whether he would be trained as a bombardier, navigator, or pilot. An official Air Forces letter dated January 29, 1943 states that Spooner was given his classification, pilot, and began his preflight training which would take about nine weeks. In a letter dated January 30, 1943 he writes to his family, "By the time you get this letter you will probably have gotten my note and the copy of my classification for pilot training. That is really super isn't it? God but I was really nervous when I took that darn physical and I was damned anxious when I was waiting for my classification."A letter from Major General G.C. Brant, at Randolph Field, Texas dated March 2, 1943 to Ruth Spooner reads, "I note that your boy, now an Aviation Cadet, has been specially selected for training as a Pilot in the Army Air Forces...The duties of an Army Pilot call for a high degree of mental and physical alertness, sound judgement, and an inherent aptitude for flying. Men who will make good material for training as Pilots are rare...Comprehensive tests indicate that your son stands a very good chance of successfully completing the rigid training for an army pilot and you have every reason to be proud of him."By May, 1943 Spooner was preparing to fly and was moved to Corsicana Field in Texas to begin his flight courses. "After ten months of waiting I am just about ready to fly." Later in June of '43 he writes, "I got great news for you today. We just got in from the flying line and guess what, I soloed today - (long pause)." He writes in a letter soon after, "We have been flying in the mornings and we get out as early as possible. I got two hours and a half in the air today and my instructor said I gave him a damned good ride." While nearly the end of his flying training he writes, "Am having a lot of fun flying as we are now on the acrobatic phase. This is really fun and it is just like riding around with a stunt flyer. We started doing loops and snap rolls today. These are exciting as hell and it's more fun than going to Jantzen Beach." He continues, "everything sure looks queer upside down but in a loop you have no sensation of being upside down."After completing flying school Spooner was shipped to Enid, Oklahoma for basic training at the Enid Army Flying School. By the end of August Spooner had been promoted from Cadet Major to Cadet Colonel. He wrote to his mother saying, "I am the King Commander and thus the hour charger of the entire Cadet Detachment on this post. I was very happy about getting a crack at this job as it will mean plenty on my service record." As they neared the end of their training the cadets went on flights outside of Oklahoma to nearby states. On September 17 Spooner took a night flight to Anthony, Kansas writing, "It isn't a very long fight but it should be a lot of fun and by the time that I leave here there will be a full moon...At night the moon is really beautiful from about 5000 feet and it seems that you are even nearer to God."The final step in Spooner's flight training was "Advanced Flying School" at Foster Field in Victoria, Texas. These letters are written on letterhead from the field with the header, "University of the Clouds." During these advanced classes the focus was on instrument training, radio communication, and problem solving to assure the success of the pilots in combat situations. "It will be a lot of hard work but will be good life insurance in case we are ever lost in bad weather." In November he discusses the planes he's been working with saying, "Flew the P-40 again today for an hour and it is getting to be more and more fun. As I get used to flying it I think I will really enjoy it. It is so much more powerful and faster than an AT-6, but of course no two types of planes will fly alike." On December 5, 1943 Spooner graduated from Foster Field as a "Pearl Harbor class of flyer." In an official letter to his parents by H.H. Van Auken, Colonel Air Corps, his commanding officer writes, "Your son, Richard, graduated today...behind him now are many months of tough, hard training -- training so severe that only the best qualified have made the grade. The silver wings he has won are proof he belongs in the finest group of pilots in the world today, the Army Air Forces." After graduating Spooner was stationed at the Army Air Field in Galveston, Texas as a Lieutenant in the Air Corps where he awaiting his overseas orders. On June 6, 1944 he writes, "I'd surely like to be over there in it. Everyone has had their ear pressed to a radio all day trying to get some news. Tonight one of the nurses and I went to Chapel as there was a special prayer meeting to say a few for the guys over there." In July he writes, "Well I guess that what I've been expecting and hoping for for quite a while is just about ready to materialize and I'm not exactly sad about it. We expect to ship overseas in the near future but when only the Lord and the brass hats know. In the meantime we are impatiently chomping at the bit and waiting for that big day." By the end of the month he was at an air field in England where he piloted both a P-47 and P-51 for the 8th Air Force. He writes, "I was so struck with this country and by its peacefulness that I wrote a poem. Sort of corny but nevertheless a poem." His poem begins, "If this be England, then I know why so many men were willing to die; why so many heroes gave their all that this fair land should never fall." He writes his mother, "can't tell you much about my flying as this is a combat outfit and hence it is all forbidden." The letters stop at the end of 1944.In January of 1945, while on a mission to Germany his plane was shot down and Spooner was declared missing in action. He was accompanying a bomber squadron targeting a train near Bruehaal, Germany when he was shot down. The official report reads, "While strafing in the vicinity of Bruehaal on January 15, 1945, Lieut. R.H. Spooner was attacking a train...On the second pass while he was firing, small arms fire was returned from the train. Black smoke and flame appeared under the left side of the engine. Lieut. Spooner pulled up and jettisoned his external tanks and canopy after being warned his plane was burning. It appeared he did not have specific altitude to bail out. The plane went down, apparently under control, for an attempted forced landing. As he neared the ground, his right wing struck a tree, the ship was broke up and burned. Circling aircraft could see no signs of life."Later it was discovered that he had been taken prisoner after his crash. According to a newspaper clipping, "the P-47 Thunderbolt pilot was credited with damaging a Junkers 88 and had been awarded the air medal for meritorious achievement in his plane, "Portland Rose," shortly before his capture. Spooner was liberated from prison camp in April of 1945. Two small clippings document the news with headlines reading, "Portland Pilot Among Liberated," and "Richard Spooner Freed."An extensive collection of letters, photographs, and ephemera documenting a World War II pilot's entire training process as well as his tour of duty and his capture after a near fatal plane crash.

        YUGOSLAVIAN POLITICAL CHILDREN'S MAGAZINE: CICIBAN. 1945-46.

      Ljubljana: Mladinska knjiga, September -June 1946. 1945 - Small 4°, 10 numbers in 9 volumes, 194 pp., [1], with colour illustrated covers and colour full page illustrations and colour illustrations within text, stapled, accompanied with original hard-cover pink binding with illustrated cover and linen back. (Very Good, magazines loose inside binding with broken binding, paper with light foxing, some leaves loose, white endpapers loose, tiny tears in margins, binding slightly rubbed and scuffed on the edges) The complete first year of highly influential Yugoslavian children’s pro-Communist and pro-Tito propaganda magazine, published in the first months after WWII in Slovenia, was richly illustrated by academic artists. This is the complete first year of the children’s magazine Ciciban, issued in 10 numbers in 9 volumes between September 1945 and June 1946, for the first year of school in Slovenian language after the end of WWII in May 1945. The magazines include stories, poems, riddles and plays for children, all richly illustrated with colourful images. The thematic of the articles and songs rotates mostly around war subjects and post-war problematic, such as young orphans, refugees, children, who were prisoners of war and who saw their houses being destroyed and their families murdered, children, who helped assassinating the Nazis etc. These somehow disturbing and sometimes extremely cruel articles are accompanied with colourful illustrations of the highest quality, made by the leading academic artists of the time, most of which worked in underground Partisan printing presses during WWII. These articled with attractive illustrations were meant to speak to the smallest readers, highly traumatised after WWII and many of them living as orphans with their grandparents or refugees in other parts of Yugoslavia, to join in political groups of Pioneers, led by president Tito. The Pioneers, the term which corresponds the Cubs in North America, were a mandatory political children group, which primal job in the post war years was to help each other and with hard work contribute rebuilding the country. They have also received free schooling, meals, uniforms, school trips and membership at sport clubs. With these organisations, supported by children’s magazines such as Ciciban, Yugoslavia was keeping the youth, which after the war years was traumatised, poor and without a reliable future, on the straight and narrow. Ciciban remained the most popular children’s magazine in Slovenia in the times of Yugoslavia, with obligatory subscription for every child between 7-9 years of age. It included literature, educational articles, high quality colour illustrations by academic artists and political propaganda. After Tito’s death and the division of Yugoslavia, the magazine lost its political and propaganda note. It is still published today as one of the most influential educational magazines in the country. The early editions are rare, because they were printed in smaller numbers. Especially rare are the editions until 1948, when after the fall-out between Tito and Stalin, Yugoslavia strictly forbade the pro-Russian and pro-Communistic propaganda. The authors of the stories in these first editions were famous writers of children’s books such as Josip Ribi?i? (1986-1969) and Venceslav Winkler (1907-1975), and as well as foreign authors, such as Lev Tolstoy (1828–1910). The illustrators were Ive Subic (1922-1989), who was one of the most active underground Partisan artists during WWII, Maksim Gaspari, with one of the longest careers as illustrator of Children's books, Tone Kralj (1900-1975), known for his wall paintings, the architect and Art-Deco illustrator Janko Omahen (1898-1980), and many other famous painters and designers. The issues are accompanied with an original binding, which could be ordered at the end of the year by subscribers from the publisher.

        Ballet

      New York: J.J. Augustin, 1945. First edition. Original boards, original dust jacket. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, AN OUTSTANDING COPY IN THE SCARCE ORIGINAL SLIPCASE, of Brodovitch's masterpiece. "Although known primarily as a mentor and patron of photographers, due in large part to his position as art director and graphic designer at Harper's Bazaar, Alexey Brodovitch also made a legendary photobook of his own. Ballet, published in 1945 by J J Augustin in New York, has become a photobook legend for two reasons. Firstly, only a few hundred copies were printed, so the book is more talked about than actually seen. Secondly, the volume was extremely radical, both in terms of the images themselves and their incorporation into the design and layout... "The 104 pictures in Ballet had been taken by Brodovitch between 1935 and 1937. He photographed ballet companies visiting New York, including the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo, with whom he worked in Paris in the 1920s. Brodovitch shot the photographs with a 35 mm Contax camera, during both rehearsals and performances, by available light, hand-held, and using shutter speeds as slow as a fifth of a second or more. This resulted in blurred images of the moving dancers and in high-contrast, grainy negatives exhibiting burnt-out areas of flare from the stage lighting. These pictures totally violated the accepted conventions of good photographic technique, which demanded a sharp rendition of the subject and a wide, smooth tonal scale. Far from trying to mitigate these shortcomings, Brodovitch deliberately exaggerated them. He printed on high-contrast paper, bleached areas with the chemical ferricyanide to create more contrast, and enlarged tiny portions of the negative to increase grain - familiar strategies in the 1950s and 60s, but not in the 1940s. "Brodovitch's layout was as radical as his pictures. He divided the book into eleven segments, each corresponding to a ballet. Every section was laid out in a continuous strip, each image bled across its own page, so that a double-page spread can often be read as a single panorama, and the whole section like a strip of movie film. This gives the book a vibrancy and a fluidity that perfectly captures the motion of the dance... Ballet is one of the most successful attempts at suggesting motion in photography, and certainly one of the most cinematic and dynamic photobooks ever published" (Parr/Badger, Vol 1; 240-1). Roth 101. Housed in a spectacular custom box by noted book artist Sjoerd Hofstra. New York: J J Augustin, 1945. Text by Edwin Denby. 104 black and white photographs. Oblong folio (8 3/4 x 11 x 1/4 in), original boards, original French fold dust jacket; original slipcase. Housed in custom half-leather box. Slipcase lacking spine and separated at base; front label with paste action and one corner lifting. Book and dust jacket nearly perfect with only a hint of fraying to dust jacket corners. A stunning copy.

        [Photo Album]: German Family Album

      1945. Near Fine. Oblong quarto. String-tied striped cloth over paper board measuring 9" x 11". 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.

Data on the War Losses of Hungarian Jewry. 1941-1945." One of the earliest book about the Hungarian Holocaust. Published by Hechaluc (Hehalutz), the Zionist resistant movement, whose legendary headquarters was located at the Üvegház (Glasshouse) in Budapest, a former glass-store. During the Holocaust about 3000 people found shelter there and it was the center for producing fake identification documents to save Hungarian Jews from persecution. Shraga Weil (Ferenc Ferdinánd; 1918-2009) was a Hungarian born Israeli painter. He studied at the Academy of Art in Prague and École des Beaux Arts in Paris. During WWII he was active in the Zionist underground movement in Budapest, working in the workshop for forging documents. After the war he sailed for Palestine on an illegal immigrant ship and became a member of Kibbutz Ha'ogen where he lived until his death. In 1959 Weil was awarded the Dizengoff Prize for painting. He created the doors of the main entrance to the Knesset building and the President's residence in Jerusalem. Weil painted the wooden panels in the Israeli Hall at the Kennedy Center. Sándor Groszmann (Alexander Grossmann, Ben Erec; 1909-2003) was a journalist and publisher, one of the main activists of the Hungarian Zionist movement and co-founder of "Hashomer Hatzair" in Hungary. He was one of the leaders at the "Glasshouse". "When the argument arose about whether to absorb more Jews into the 'Glass House' as they might endanger the lives of those already living there, he said: 'For the sake of one hundred thousand Jews it is worth to endanger our own lives'". (Gur, D.; 2007). After the liberation he was the secretary of JDC (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee) in Budapest and member of the board of the Hungarian Zionist Association and of the "Eretz-Israel" office. In 1949 he left Hungary and after living in Austria and Israel he settled down in Switzerland where he started to publish books and the periodical "Jöv?" (Future).

These pictures totally violated the accepted conventions of good photographic technique, which demanded a sharp rendition of the subject and a wide, smooth tonal scale. Far from trying to mitigate these shortcomings, Brodovitch deliberately exaggerated them. He printed on high-contrast paper, bleached areas with the chemical ferricyanide to create more contrast, and enlarged tiny portions of the negative to increase grain - familiar strategies in the 1950s and 60s, but not in the 1940s."Brodovitch's layout was as radical as his pictures. He divided the book into eleven segments, each corresponding to a ballet. Every section was laid out in a continuous strip, each image bled across its own page, so that a double-page spread can often be read as a single panorama, and the whole section like a strip of movie film. This gives the book a vibrancy and a fluidity that perfectly captures the motion of the dance... Ballet is one of the most successful attempts at suggesting motion in photography, and certainly one of the most cinematic and dynamic photobooks ever published" (Parr/Badger, Vol 1; 240-1).

Lurie also created stage sets for the military song and dance group in the camp, which was founded by Eliahu Goldberg and Mordechai Zeira.

        TLS to A.W. Brickell, Esq. on the headed paper of Faber & Faber Ltd, Feb. 6th 1945.

      1945 Six lines typed on verso only of paper, signed by Eliot in ink, with a short ('B's') pencil annotation in an unknown hand; letterhead sl. marked, old folds, a few small marginal tears.Brief letter returning a 'drawing of Shelley's home in Marlow', regretting that no suitable book for it is forthcoming, and declining to keep it on file. A.W. Brickell was an art collector, insurance broker, and associate of Graham Greene and Lloyd Osbourne. He appears to have written constant letters to famous writers, which may explain the politely detached tone of this missive from the great modernist.
