        Research Portfolio of English solicitor Sir Robert Ricketts, with Letters from WWII Vice-Consul in Spain. Investigations Into Spy Episode Which Formed the Basis for the Movie THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS

      England, 1946-2004, 1946. Research portfolio of English solicitor Sir Robert Ricketts, 7th Baronet Ricketts, endeavoring to ascertain the particulars of the "true incident" which inspired the plan for Operation Mincement, and the fate of the mysterious 'Man Who Never Was.' Comprises 3 signed letters, 9 photographs, 17 newspaper articles and announcements, 1 calling card, 2 maps, and 7 pages of personal notes. Of special interest are two early letters from 1946 by Captain Guy Dingwall Williams, Vice-Consulate and Assistant British Naval Attaché in Madrid, who collected some of the deceased aviator's garments at the site of the Barrosa Catalina crash near Cadiz one year prior to Operation Mincement. The third letter is from Ralph Bennett, author and historian who worked for four years at Bletchley Park as a senior producer of the intelligence (Ultra). Documents and photographs range in size; the manuscript notes are initialed R.C.R. [Robert Cornwallis Ricketts]; the lot is in excellent condition, contained in plastic sleeves in a binder, neatly organized and indexed for easy reference. One of the most successful wartime deceptions ever attempted was a scheme called "Operation Mincemeat," a plan to deceive the Germans into believing that Allied forces were planning to attack in Greece, as opposed to their true aim, Sicily. To this end, the British carefully prepared a corpse, disguised as a British Royal Marines officer, and carrying a briefcase of secret documents. These papers, complete with original signatures from the War Office, together with proper identification proving the concocted identity of a Major Martin, and typical personalia of a military man, revealed a fictitious Allied plan for an invasion of Greece, coined "Operation Brimstone." From a submarine, at 4:15 am on 30 April 1943, the body was made to drift onto the shores of Spain. The body of 'Major Martin' was found at around 9:30 am by a Spanish fisherman. it was taken to Huelva by Spanish soldiers, where it was handed over to a naval judge. Upon performing an autospy and other investigations, the Spanish deemed the man to have died from 'asphyxiation through immersion in the sea.' The information was passed to the Germans on May 8th, and the German intelligence department did in fact accept the documents as authentic, subsequently diverting much of their defensive effort from Sicily to Greece. Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel was sent to Greece to assume command. The Germans transferred a group of "R boats" from Sicily, laid three additional minefields off the Greek coast, and moved three panzer divisions to Greece from other fronts. With the Allied invasion of Sicily, codenamed Operation Husky, which lasted from 9 July to 17 August 1943, the island of Sicily was successfully taken from the Axis powers (Italy and Germany). Since the epic wartime deception, questions have arisen as to the body's true identity, as well as the origin of the scheme itself. The present archive is the work of one man who was seeking to answer the question of origin. Sir Robert Cornwallis Gerald St Leger Ricketts (1917-2005), 7th Baronet Ricketts, was a solicitor who practised at Stroud, in Gloucestershire He graduated from Magdalene College, Cambridge University, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, in 1943 with a Master of Arts (M.A.). In 1944 he was in Spain, serving with the army as Assistant Deputy Fortress Commander at Gibraltar. From 1945 to 1946 he was Aide-de-Camp to the Lieutenant-Governor of Jersey. He a practising solicitor in 1949, and became a partner of Wellington & Clifford. His wife, who is seen with him in one of the photographs, was Anne Theresa Ricketts, a daughter of British politician Sir Stafford Cripps who Churchill appointed ambassador to the Soviet Union in 1942. She was made CBE for her work as chairman of the National Association of Citizens' Advice Bureaux. Their son, Robert Tristram Ricketts, 8th Baronet, was born on April 17 1946. [The Ricketts baronetcy had been created in 1828 for Sir Robert Tristram Ricketts, an admiral in the Royal Navy who served the Napoleonic Wars and in the War of 1812.] A morbidly clever World War II strategy which utilized a human corpse for a grand deception is investigated by British nobleman Sir Robert Cornwallis Gerald St Leger Ricketts (1917-2005) who is particularly interested in the "true story" - the inspiration for the unusually macabre plot devised by the otherwise conservative and high-principled British Government. As a young lad serving in the Royal Army during the Second World War, Ricketts was posted in Gibraltar the year after "Operation Mincemeat", and only two years after the preceding tragic incident which occurred on a Gibraltar beach in September 1942, the latter of which he believed inspired the former - a most egregious yet victorious 1943 British Intelligence Strategy. According to a captioned photograph taken on the grounds of Government House in January 1944, Ricketts was serving as Assistant Deputy Fortress Commander at Gibraltar, and evidently acquainted with three of the Governor's assistants. These connections surely provided Ricketts with details then unknown to the public, enough to pique his curiosity and raise further questions, in particular of the crash of an RAF FP119 seaplane Barrosa Catalina near Cadiz in 1942, and of the body of the plane's pilot, Eric Turner, to be washed ashore with a secret letter for authorities still present in his pocket. Seeking primary source information, in 1946 Ricketts wrote to his friend Captain Guy Dingwall Williams "Don Guido" (1889-1959), who was British Vice-Consulate in Spain during the war. The portfolio contains two (2) response letters from Williams, specifically recollecting details surrounding the RAF seaplane crash of 1942. Affixed to the letter, Williams includes three news clippings pertaining to the incident. Residing with his wife Nina in Cadiz at the time, Guy Williams describes scouring the shore and finding some clothing which belonged to Lieutenant Turner of the felled aircraft. Excerpts from letters by Captain Williams, dated 13 and 26 March, 1946, respectively : "Now, with regard to the Barrosa Catalina... as far as I was involved... 18th October 1942,, we picked up a pyjama coat marked E.J. Turner..." "... the Catalina crashed on or about the 25th September 1942, and when we went down on Sunday the 27th, our keeper told us that he had heard an explosion... that the day before, viz. Saturday the 26th (?)... the two bodies had been washed up and also a dispatch case with papers on the beach within half a mile of our little house." "... the Spanish Authorities warned Algeciras who in their turn told Gibraltar... Bobby... brought the bodies back and when they were searched in Gibraltar an envelope containing the most "Top secret" letter addressed to the Governor of Gibraltar was found in a pocket..." "... what had been picked up... several lists of names... must have been some form of black list. Further bodies and wreckage were washed up afterwards." "Collie [British Consul at Cadiz] at one time assured me that the Spaniards knew everything... the Admiral at San Fernando was very pro-German..." "Collie from Cadiz... had been told for a fact that the papers found on the beach had been sent up by hand by a naval officer called Cuvillo very urgently and with strict orders that he was to hand them personally to Franco in Madrid, and that Franco passed them on at once to the German Embassy, who said they were too late to do anything but they sent them to Berlin. I do not think this can be very true... Berlin could have found plenty of time to look into the question of the huge North African convoy crossing the Atlantic..." We also find a signed letter addressed to Ricketts, 28 June 1994, from Ralph Bennett, an author and historian who worked at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. In his letter he mentions Bletchley's 'Ultra' Secret; he acknowledges receipt of notes from Ricketts on the 1942 crash which inspired the movie 'The Man Who Never Was'; and he discusses his books. [Bennett wrote, "Behind the Battle: Intelligence in the War with Germany, 1939-45," published in London, 1994, and several other works on Second World War intelligence.] In 1953 Ricketts travelled to Spain with his wife Anne Theresa to visit the beach where the bodies and debris had been found in 1942, staying at the residence of Guy Williams. A photograph here shows the Ricketts, together with Williams and his wife Nina, as well as the affluent wine and sherry merchant John Harvey, at the Madrid airport. [Ricketts most likely became friends with Captain Guy Dingwall Wiliams during the war while both were in Spain. Popularily known as Don Guido, Captain Wiliams was sent to Cadiz to control revolutionary activities in Spain and to set up a so-called anti-Bolshevik Department. They later had a connection through family as well, Ricketts' wife being the daughter of Sir Stafford Cripps, and Guy Williams' sister having married Lady Islabel Cripps' brother.] Also of interest, he includes a photograph of Lieutenant General Sir Frank Noel Mason-MacFarlane, Governor of Gibraltar from 1942 to 1944, and the intended recipient of the letter being carried by aviator Turner. This image makes an interesting diplomatic connection between Governor MacFarlane and Ricketts' father-in-law Sir Stafford Cripps by way of a 1941 mission to Moscow. The important discovery in 1996 which finally revealed the true name of the body used for Operation Mincemeat, and which was substantiated with an official statement by the British Government, evidently re-ignited Ricketts' interest in the mysterious affair. Having consistently gathered more information through the decades, in 1997 he began making manuscript notes, continuing until the year before his passing in 2004, to connect the details and summarize the events of this great puzzle. [In 1996 Roger Morgan, an amateur historian from London, uncovered an array of evidence in the Public Record Office revealing the identity of the corpse, not as that of a Major Martin, but that of a Welsh labourer named Glyndwr Michael. Research done by historian Christopher Andrew came to the same conclusion, which he published in his book on the history of the Secret Service entitled "The Defence of the Realm". Cementing the theory, at least for most, in 1998, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission added an inscription on Major Martin?s grave in Huelva which reads "Glyndwr Michael served as Major William Martin." The research of Canadian Professor Denis Smyth, published in 2010 in his book, "Operation Mincemeat: Death, Deception and the Mediterranean D-Day", would further supporting these claims.] A fascinating war story still shrouded with ongoing controversy, most of the speculation surrounds the proof of true identity of the body. Others such as Baron Ricketts, seek to uncover the roots of the bizarre and ingenious plan. It is most widely accepted that approximately one month after the Turner crash, British intelligence officer Charles Cholmondeley of MI5 outlined a plan based on the tragedy, a plan which was improved upon by Ewen Montagu, Naval intelligence officer and Judge Advocate of the Fleet. Historian and author Ben Macintyre and others, believe that the plan was conceived by Ian Fleming, an assistant to the head of British Naval Intelligence, and later the creator of James Bond. Fleming evidently claims that he'd lifted the idea from a detective novel. .

        BLUE DAHLIA, THE (1946)

      Paramount 1946 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, William Bendix, Howard Da Silva, dir: George Marshall; Paramount. One of the finest classic film noir titles and written by the master of the genre, Raymond Chandler. The story involved a war vet who returns home to see his wife with another man. She is murdered and he is the prime suspect. The Blue Dahlia is a nightclub where much of the action takes place. Chandler initially had the returning vet (Bendix) as the murderer, but the patriotic atmosphere of the time would not permit a war vet to be seen in that light, so he had to rewrite the story and character. In this card are Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake and Howard da Silva. There is a mended left edge tear and a few soil spots to the top blank white margin. There are two pinholes near the top left corner and two at the top right corner of the image. NEAR FINE

        Anthem.

      Los Angeles: Pamphleteers, Inc.,, 1946. Octavo. Original grey paper wrappers with red lettering to front cover. Markings in margin. Toning and creasing to spine and edges of covers, nicks to extremities, browning to edges, glue visible at gutter of title and on inside of covers, slight tears to pp. 3/4 and 55/6; still a very good copy. First US edition, second printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on title, "To Mary - Cordially - Ayn Rand. Oct. 5, 1950". Anthem is the second novel Rand published in the West. The reception of her first - We The Living (1936) - had been critically ambiguous and, in terms of sales, poor, so much so that no American publisher could be persuaded to publish this book (it was however published in the UK by Cassell in 1938). Indeed only after the success of The Fountainhead and the end of the Second World War did Anthem appear in this American edition. This second printing of February 1947 comprises the "book store edition" of Number 1 of Volume III of The Freeman. The Freeman was the journal owned by two of Rand's friends, Leonard Read and William Mullendore, "devoted exclusively to individualism, limited government, and economic liberty.

[Aiken, Howard Hathaway (1900-1973) and Grace Murray Hopper (1906–92).] A manual of operation for the Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator by the staff of the Computation Laboratory. [16], 561 [3]pp. 17 numbered plates (including frontispiece), text illustrations. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1946. 268 x 200 mm. Original dark blue cloth, dust-jacket (skillfully repaired). Minor finger-soiling, but very good. From the library of computing pioneer Frank M. Verzuh (1918-2000), with his stamp on the front free endpaper. First Edition, in the Extremely Rare Dust-Jacket. This is the only copy of this work in dust-jacket that we have ever handled. The Harvard Mark I, also known as the IBM Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator, was the brainchild of Howard Aiken, who first conceived of building a powerful, large-scale calculating machine in 1935 while pursuing graduate studies in physics at Harvard University. In 1937, after Aiken had become a professor of applied mathematics at Harvard’s Graduate School of Engineering, he proposed his idea to a number of calculating-machine manufacturers, receiving several rejections before finally convincing IBM to undertake the project. Construction of the Mark I was completed in early 1943, and a year later the machine was dismantled and shipped to Harvard, where it became operational in May 1944. After the Mark I was set up it was immediately commandeered for war work by the United States Navy. Aiken, a commander in the United States Naval Reserve (USNR), was put in charge of the navy’s computation project, and he later joked that he was first naval officer ever to command a computer. One of Aiken’s staff was Lieutenant (later Admiral) Grace M. Hopper, a mathematician who, in her own words, had “never met a digit” until joining the Computation Laboratory; she would go on to become one of the most famous of the postwar computer pioneers, making fundamental contributions to the development of the first compilers. The operating manual for the Mark I calculator—published as Volume 1 of the Annals of the Computation Laboratory of Harvard University—was written largely by Hopper, who was the chief author of chapters 1–3 and the eight appendices following chapter 6. The Mark I was an electromechanical machine, based largely on existing IBM punched-card technology. It was the first programmable calculating machine to actually produce mathematical tables, fulfilling the dream of Charles Babbage originally set out in print in 1822. Aiken saw himself as Babbage’s intellectual successor, and he and Hopper placed the Harvard Mark I in its historical context in an excellent historical introduction to this technical manual. This copy is from the library of Frank M. Verzuh, an early pioneer in the computing field. “Frank M. Verzuh worked at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1940 until 1960, beginning as a research assistant in the Department of Electrical Engineering, earning his SM degree in 1946 and his SCD in 1952 and becoming the first Assistant Director of the Computation Center in 1956 . . . Before and during World War II he worked under Vannevar Bush on differential analyzers and the Rapid Arithmetic Machine. Together with other leading researchers he attended the renowned Moore School Lectures in 1946. His notes are the only remaining ones for some of those lectures” (“Dr. Frank Matthew Verzuh.” IT History Society. N.p., 31 Dec. 2015. Web. Accessed 17 Nov. 2016). Origins of Cyberspace 411.

        Le Trou de la serrure

      [12] pages Paris [Éditions du Palimugre], c.1946, in-4, [12] pages, feuilles sous couverture rempliée sur carton, Édition originale. Tirage à part du Palimugre, 250 exemplaires numérotés sur papier d'Arches (n°74). Dans ce court essai, Marcel Aymé (1902-1967) parle de sa vision de l'art du romancier, changé depuis la découverte des camps d'extermination et de concentration nazis. Le "trou de la serrure" est l'accès du romancier à l'humanité, qu'il observe et dont il "laisse apparaitre" les comportements humains, notamment les plus troublants. A la sortie de la guerre, et au regard des crimes nazis, Marcel Aymé s'interroge sur une cruauté qui prend le visage d'un homme "comme tout le monde". Ainsi, il traite brièvement du rôle et de la conduite possible du romancier, face à un matériau humain complexe. Quelques rousseurs.

        L'hypothèse de l'atome primitif. Essai de cosmogonie

      de 201 et (7) pages Neuchatel, Éditions du Griffon [et] Bruxelles, Éditions Hermès, 1946, in-8, de 201 et (7) pages, exemplaire broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, Première édition, peu courante, du seul ouvrage scientifique publié par le physicien belge qui forme une synthèse de vingt années de recherche en astrophysique et l'aboutissement de dizaines d'articles publiés en revue entre 1925 et 1945. Lemaître proposa en 1927 un modèle cosmologique non-statique, élaboré à partir des travaux d'Einstein sur la conceptualisation d'un univers statique (fondé sur la théorie de la relativité générale) et indépendamment des équations posées par Alexandre Friedmann en 1922 et 1924. Il entérinait en cela la théorie d'un univers en expansion (idée longtemps refusée par Einstein lui-même). En 1931, lors d'un débat avec Eddington au moment du Centenary Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science qui se tint à Londres, il formula, pour la première fois, une idée qui allait connaitre une grande postérité dans l'histoire de l'astronomie, celle du Big-Bang : "At the origin, all mass of the universe would exist in the form of a unique atom. The radius of the universe, although not strictly zero, being relatively small. The whole universe would be produced by the the desintegration of this primeval atom [L'univers tout entier aurait été produit par la désintégration de cet atome primitif]". L'édition de 1946 est donc la synthèse majeure d'un des pères de la théorie de l'expansion de l'Univers et du Big-Bang. Exemplaire correct, couverture fanée. Ex-dono sur une garde blanche, daté du 21 novembre 1946 à Istanbul (signé Carl Weisglan) et ex-libris manuscrit.

        Churchill War Coalition Cabinet Presentation Medal.

      1946 - Cast and engraved bronze circular medal, 4 inches in diameter. A little oxidation otherwise a very good example preserved in remains of the original suede case (missing fold over flap) This medal was prepared at Churchill's personal instruction for presentation to senior members of the wartime coalition government and members of the armed forces following the end of the coaltion government in the General Elections of 1945. The medal was ordered in December 1945 and delivered in August 1946 for personal distribution by the former Prime Minister to some 133 individuals. Each recipient's name was engraved on the reverse, with the legend: "To . from Winston Churchill". The obverse said "Salute the Great Coalition 1940-1945". This medal was presented to Robert Hudson. Robert Hudson (1886-1957) was Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries from 1940 to 1945. He came to the post with a reputation for hard work but his support for certain free trade practices was deemed harmful to England's farmers, and many wondered if Hudson was fit for the job. He proved more than able and was instrumental in ensuring that England didn't starve during the war. "With a determination, as Lord Winterton commented, 'to see that farmers and landowners alike used every acre of soil to help keep the nation from starvation' (Winterton, 272), Hudson and his junior minister, Tom Williams, undertook a massive organizational and publicity task. Through guaranteed prices and markets for most goods, and the development of a nationwide network of decentralized county and district committees involving local farmers themselves in the monitoring of land use, farming output was increased greatly. The acreage in England and Wales of wheat, for example, was by 1944 increased by 82 per cent, potatoes by 116 per cent, sugar beet by 24 per cent, and the total area under tillage by nearly 4.75 million acres (69 per cent)" (ODNB). Vita Sackville-West considered Hudson an ally, and in the opinion of many, he "'was by far the best of Ministers of Agriculture in either war' (Winterton, 272)" (ODNB). After the war, Hudson was made first viscount Hudson, retired from politics, and established a successful Friesian herd in Wiltshire. He died in Southern Rhodesia, where he had some farming interests Engstrom. The Medallic Portraits of Sir Winston Churchill No. 13
