        [Archive]: World War II Letters Correspondence

      Island of Tinian. March 1 - September 8, 1945. A collection comprised of 35 letters written while Andrews was in the Service, serving on the Island of Tinian in the Marianas of the South Pacific, just three miles from Saipan. All letters are near fine, some are on Red Cross Stationary, nine retain the original mailed envelopes with the appropriate "Soldier's Mail" notations, as well as censor stamps. All are to Lillian, Andrews sister who resides in their hometown of St. Albans, Vermont, and are all signed "E." These can best be described as "Camp Life" letters written in the aftermath of the Battle of Tinian after which the island became an "important base for further Allied operations in the Pacific campaign." Used as an airfield due to it's proximity to Japan, Tinian was the sight of the loading of the Atomic bombs into the Enola Gay. A complete list of letters with descriptions is available upon request.The writer is a perceptive, decent, caring, young soldier, unsure about his post war life, but well-grounded, honorable, and self-effacing. In a letter dated March 6, 1945 Andrews writes, "We are now running cable underground thru to another switchboard and personally, I'm enjoying the work. We are by ourselves, out in the open fields. Planes fly above our heads and we usually raise our heads to watch their antics." Another letter dated March 26, 1945 reads, "if we could be together tonight we'd have one heck of a long visit but this censorship business puts a ball and chain on my writing. Guess we'll have to wait and visit after the war." On April 2, 1945 he writes, "the war with Germany stands pretty good and I hope those Hammerheads fold up soon. None of us expect to get home until this war with Japan is finished up, but with Germany out things would pick up over here a lot faster. I wish they'd have me do more to help finish off Japan. It's about like being back in the States here now, in a way. No more air raids." A letter from May discusses the prison camps reading, "I've been reading the news of the Nazi prison camps and death traps. It seems almost impossible to believe that a supposedly civilized people could do such destruction of human life." Provides interesting insights into the thoughts and attitudes of a member of "the Greatest Generation". .

        A l'ombre du romanesque. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of three and a half pages in-4 published in the 23 of November 18, 1945 Landscape Sunday. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Chronic literary work of André Dhôtel. Full typescript is attached. When the apostle of silence literature novelist speaks of the invisible, it gives a strange apology of a work "intended to save [...] the essence of the novel, his pure life and secret", "exciting into its monotony, as the pace of the most beautiful romantic stories where nothing happens, but where the unexpected is always imminent. " Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought. " (C. Bident). The autograph manuscripts of Maurice Blanchot are of great rarity. S.n. (Paysage dimanche) s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945) 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4 3 pages 1/2 in-4

        Naked City.

      Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in grey morocco, titles to spine and front board in silver, wraparound black morocco of New York's skyline, twin rule to turn-ins silver, black endpapers with the original bound in, silver edges. A fine copy. Illustrated with black and white photographs throughout. First edition, first printing. Weegee's first book. Arthur (Weegee) Fellig is one of the centuries most eccentric artists, famously he would appear at crime scenes before the police. He achieved this by the simple device of spending night after night in the tougher sections of New York listening to the radio traffic on a police radio he had at some time "liberated". Famous as a sensationalist in his day, time has treated him more kindly and the hard eye with which he shaped his pictures gave them qualities like no others. Parr & Badger.

But times are catching up these days/ so here's luck from your Uncle Erle/ Love/ Erle Stanley Gardner/ June 1945." Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG and she always received Gardner's latest book in the mail -- usually immediately upon its publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her dating from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE CASE OF THE GOLDIGGER'S PURSE plot goes like this: Mason is surprised to hear that someone wants to consult him about a sick goldfish, which leads to a crooked partner, a secret formula, and a gold-digging ingénue accused of murder..

        Il canzoniere (1900-1945)

      Einaudi, Roma 1945 - Un volume in 8°piccolo(15,5 x 20,5); legatura editoriale in tela rigida grezza, autore e titolo in oro su tassello al dorso; sovraccoperta editoriale trasparente, con fac-simile di firma del Poeta; pp. 610, (2). Qualche difettino alla sovraccoperta (rarissima a trovarsi), timbro ex-libris al frontespizio, qualche leggera annotazione a lapis all'interno, ma è copia molto buona. Rara prima edizione del secondo Canzoniere del Saba (dopo quello di Trieste del 1921), con poesie della maturità, fortemente voluta dal poeta stesso. Dei vari editori consultati, tra i quali Preda e Carabba, solo Einaudi accettò la pubblicazione. Il risultato non fu gradito all'autore: stampato in tempi di ristrettezze economiche, il Canzoniere aveva una modesta brossura come copertina, e la carta è quella tipica del periodo postbellico, di colore grigio sporco e di cattiva qualità. Per venire incontro alle esigenze dell'autore, Einaudi fece rilegare qualche centinaio di copie (la tiratura era di 2900 esemplari) con legatura più lussuosa e più solida, in tela grezza rigida. Non potè però fare nulla per quel che riguardava la qualità modesta della carta [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Applied Mathematical Research in Germany, with particular Reference to Naval Applications

      London: H.M.S.O.,, (1945). Report No. 79. British Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee. Folio (195 x 255 mm), [iv], 65 pp., stapled roneoed typescript in printed wrappers as issued (2 early leaves bound out of sequence but complete), marked 'Copy No. 438' and stamped 'Restricted' in red, later stamped 'Unclassified' in blue (with, however, one paragraph on p. 2 blacked out), covers discoloured towards edges, considerable fraying around spine, internally very good. First edition, the report of an investigation carried out in Germany during June-July 1945, which included visits to A. Walther at the IPM, Darmstadt, and to the University of Göttingen. Page 63 gives a brief account of "Ing. Zuse's calculating machines", written before direct contact had been established with him. As the war in Europe was drawing to a close, the Allies planned to find out as much information as possible about the work of German scientists and mathematicians, particularly those engaged in rocketry and atomic weapons. This report documents an intelligence mission to Germany by a six-man team of mathematicians in June, July and August 1945. Eight 'targets' were selected for investigation, each of which is the subject of a section in the report (see Table of Contents). Notable among them was the 'Peenemünde Group' working on the trajectories of V2 rockets at Niederhausen near Darmstadt (Section 1, Group 1), and the Mathematisches Reichsinstitut at Oberwolfach, founded in 1944 by Wilhelm Süss, then Rektor of Freiburg University. Pages 63-4 give a brief account of Konrad Zuse's electro-mechanical binary computer (the Z4), evacuated to Göttingen in February 1945. The team was led by the British mathematician John Todd (1911-2007), who would go on to end his distinguished career at Caltech, after doing pioneering work in numerical analysis and playing a key role in the development of some of the first large computers. In 1943 he had founded the Admiralty Computing Service, from which he recruited this team. Fred Hoyle was added for his expertise with radar. 'There is no possibility of "controlling" mathematical research, i.e. preventing work being carried out on "war" subjects. It is abundantly clear from our observations in Germany and from information obtained from U.S.A. (and, to a much less extent, from our experience in U.K.) that almost any top-class mathematician practising in the most abstract fields can very quickly make substantial contributions in the mathematics of technology' (pp. 2-3). Elsewhere Todd recounted how on this mission he earned the title 'The Saviour of Oberwolfach', by preventing Moroccan soldiers from burning the entire mathematical library of Freiburg which Süss had evacuated to the Black Forest for safe-keeping (interview with Don Albers, 'John Todd—Numerical Mathematics Pioneer', The College Mathematics Journal, Volume 38, Number 1, January 2007 , pp. 2-23)

        Spellbound (Original photograph of Ingrid Bergman from the Salvidor Dali-designed dream sequence)

      Los Angeles: Selznick International, 1945. Vintage single weight photograph of Ingrid Bergman from Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 film noir. Taken from a dream sequence design for the film by Salvador Dali, wherein Bergman turns into a statue of the Roman goddess Diana. The sequence was set up, and possibly filmed, but does not appear in the final cut of the film. Shot by still photographer Madison Lacy. Both Hitchcock and producer David O. Selznick were less than fond of Dalí's ideas, and Bergman is quoted in David Spoto's Hitchcock biography, "The Dark Side of Genius," as saying that the Dalí sequence ran for almost twenty minutes before much of it, including the Diana portion, was cut by Selznick. The cut footage no longer exists, and only a few of Lacy's production stills have survived. This particular example, one of a purported 6 known shots from the unfilmed (or unused) portion of the dream sequence, shows the actress in a quintessentially sophisticated pose. It has become quite famous over time, and has been used repeatedly in books about Ms. Bergman, most recently on the rear cover of the 2008 Taschen book on Bergman in its "Movie Icons" series. Lacy's other work includes still photography for Erich von Stroheim's "The Wedding March," as well as promotional work for the films of Busby Berkeley. 8.5 x 7 inches. In an archival mat. Very Good, with some faint creasing from use, but no pinoles, tears, or loss. Criterion Collection 136. Grant, p. 601. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, p. 311. Selby Canon, p. 123. Silver, p. 275. Spicer, p. 419.
