        WAR SPEECHES 4 Volumes (of 7 total) Fancy Rebound

      London: Cassell, 1946. First editions. Hardcover. A near fine set, with light foxing on edges. The 4 volumes are: THE UNRELENTING STRUGGLE (second of seven volumes, contains 72 speeches) - THE DAWN OF LIBERATION (the fifth of seven volumes, contains all speeches from 1944) - VICTORY (the sixth of seven volumes; speeches, broadcasts, messages, statements, a letter, and the text of the Crimea Declaration made, sent, and issued between 18 January and 16 August 1945.) - SECRET SESSION SPEECH (seventh and final volume of Churchill's war speeches. This slim volume contains five speeches Churchill made to the House of Commons sitting in Secret Session - those of 20 June and 17 September 1940, 25 June 1941, and 23 April and 10 December 1942.

        Maschinenschriftlicher Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Pacific Palisades, 24. 1. 1946. - Mit gedrucktem Briefkopf. 1 Bl. 27 x 18,5 cm. An Mrs. Edda Hankamer am Seton Hill College in Pennsylvania (1895-1982, gest. in Las Vegas; 1925-33 Privatdozentin für Germanistik in Köln, seit 1945 Professur Seton Hall College, 1953 University of Tennessee), Gattin des Germanisten und Publizisten Paul Hankamer, der nach Kriegsende eine Schussverletzung erlitt, der er wenig später erlag (München, 29. Juni 1945). Thomas Mann antwortet auf den Brief mit der Todesnachricht und beklagt, "dass er glaubte, unserem Lande eine Treue halten zu muessen, die es in diesem Zustand, in dem es geraten ist, keineswegs verdiente. Er hat für diese Treue mit seinem wertvollen Leben bezahlen muessen". - Desweiteren berichtet er von Überlegungen, in die Schweiz zu reisen - meint aber, "die Verhältnisse dort waehrend dieser Zeit noch schlimmer und anarchischer werden als sie schon sind". - Edda Hankamer, die bereits am 1. Oktober 1938 über Rotterdam in die USA emigrierte, ersuchte Mann, ihr bei der Abwicklung des Nachlasses ihres Gatten behilflich zu sein. Thomas Mann weicht höflich aus und ergänzt: "Immerhin koennte sich die Moeglichkeit bieten einen Dritten damit zu betrauen, und wenn ich hoere, dass einer meiner Soehne, die sich noch in amerikanischen Diensten in Europa aufhalten, wieder nach Muenchen kommt, so will ich ihn gern veranlassen, sich der Sache nach Moeglichkeit anzunehmen". - Zu dem Literaturwissenschaftler Paul Hankamer vgl. NDB 7, 617. - Gefaltet, unterschiedlich gebräunt, kleine Randläsuren.

        The Baker Street Journal. An Irregular Quarterly of Sherlockiana.

      New York, Ben Abramson 1946-7, 1946. The scarce first eight numbers (two years) of the famous journal which has been in print ever since it first appeared in 1946. Named after the original Irregulars, a group of street urchins whom Holmes would employ for a shilling a day (plus expenses), with a guinea prize (worth one pound and one shilling) for a vital clue, The Baker Street Irregulars is an organisation of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts founded in 1934 by Christopher Morley. Members have included Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Rex Stout and Isaac Asimov. The BSI is considered the pre-eminent Sherlockian group in the United States and convenes every January in New York for a weekend of study, debates and celebration. This set compises the first two volumes of quarterlys, in original printed yellow wrappers. Some trivial toning to spines otherwise in truly fine condition, housed in a gilt-titled black buckram box.

Bound in recent half blue morocco, the original cloth boards laid down, iwth raised bands, gilt compartments, two red labels with gilt titles to spine. In a slipcase, bound in blue cloth. Internally clean and fresh, with no signs of wear, plates clean, bright, and vivid. Binding is tight and presentable. A handsome set of the works of the extraordinary Gothic savant. When considering his traumatic and brief life story, it is easy to see how his sensibility for the darker side of human nature arose - but this still fails to explain the sheer fecundity of his imagination, or the brilliance of his writing.

        Portrait photograph of soprano Camilla Williams

      New York, 1946. Bust portrait in profile. Gelatin silver print. 1 vols. 25.2 x 18.7 cm. (approximately 9-7/8 x 7-3/8 inches). Fine. Atelier stamp on verso, and docketed in pen, giving the name of the sitter, date, and print reference ("III - cc - 15"). Bust portrait in profile. Gelatin silver print. 1 vols. 25.2 x 18.7 cm. (approximately 9-7/8 x 7-3/8 inches). She Broke the Color Barrier in American Opera. In 1946, the year Van Vechten shot this fine profile portrait of the young soprano, Camilla Williams (b. 1922) became the first Afro-American to sign a contract with a major American opera company (the New York City Opera). Her debut with the company was as the title role in Madame Butterfly; she was also the first to appear in a role not specifically created for black performer. Over the next six years Williams was to perform Nedda in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, Mimì in Puccini's La Bohème, and Verdi's Aida. In 1954, she appeared as Madame Butterfly with London's Sadler's Wells Opera and later the Vienna State Opera. Miss Williams was also a distinguished concert artist, and performed on tour throughout the United States, in fourteen African countries, in South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, New Zealand, and Australia. From 1977 to 1997, she was professor of voice at Indiana University's School of Music. William died January 29, 2012 The Library of Congress possesses two other images of Williams from this same session; both are half-length views, and neither conveys the intimate detail of this warm bust portrait, which is inscribed to Saul Mauriber, Van Vechten's assistant. From the Estate of Saul Mauriber, Van Vechten's assistant, and the editor/compiler of PORTRAITS: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF CARL VAN VECHTEN (1978); EXTRAVAGANT CROWD: Carl Van Vechten's Portraits of Women (Beinecke Library, Exhibition Catalogue, 2003)

        Maschinenschriftlicher Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Pacific Palisades, 24. 1. 1946.. Mit gedrucktem Briefkopf. 1 Bl. 27 x 18,5 cm. An Mrs. Edda Hankamer am Seton Hill College in Pennsylvania (1895-1982, gest. in Las Vegas; 1925-33 Privatdozentin für Germanistik in Köln, seit 1945 Professur Seton Hall College, 1953 University of Tennessee), Gattin des Germanisten und Publizisten Paul Hankamer, der nach Kriegsende eine Schussverletzung erlitt, der er wenig später erlag (München, 29. Juni 1945). Thomas Mann antwortet auf den Brief mit der Todesnachricht und beklagt, "dass er glaubte, unserem Lande eine Treue halten zu muessen, die es in diesem Zustand, in dem es geraten ist, keineswegs verdiente. Er hat für diese Treue mit seinem wertvollen Leben bezahlen muessen". - Desweiteren berichtet er von Ãœberlegungen, in die Schweiz zu reisen - meint aber, "die Verhältnisse dort waehrend dieser Zeit noch schlimmer und anarchischer werden als sie schon sind". - Edda Hankamer, die bereits am 1. Oktober 1938 über Rotterdam in die USA emigrierte, ersuchte Mann, ihr bei der Abwicklung des Nachlasses ihres Gatten behilflich zu sein. Thomas Mann weicht höflich aus und ergänzt: "Immerhin koennte sich die Moeglichkeit bieten einen Dritten damit zu betrauen, und wenn ich hoere, dass einer meiner Soehne, die sich noch in amerikanischen Diensten in Europa aufhalten, wieder nach Muenchen kommt, so will ich ihn gern veranlassen, sich der Sache nach Moeglichkeit anzunehmen". - Zu dem Literaturwissenschaftler Paul Hankamer vgl. NDB 7, 617. - Gefaltet, unterschiedlich gebräunt, kleine Randläsuren.

        POIROT AND THE REGATTA MYSTERY

      London: Vallancey Press Limited, n.d. [1946]., 1946. First edition. First separate edition. 5" x 7" pictorial stiff wrappers. Several of Christie’s short stories were published separately in the 1940s and all are extremely desirable and very scarce. This copy is slightly dusty and a bit rubbed on the spine, but otherwise a fine fresh copy and rare in this condition. A World War II publication. In this story a diamond merchant and his party step off their yacht to enjoy the festivities at shore. But when the youngest member of the party, Eve Leathern, decides to play a trick with a £30,000 diamond named The Morning Star, the fun suddenly escalates into a dramatic jewel theft. The most suspected member of the party begs Hercule Poirot to solve the disappearance of the valuable gem, pleading that he is not the thief. But if he isn’t, who is?

        Matthew Flinders' Narrative of his Voyage in the Schooner Francis: 1798. Preceded and Followed by Notes on Flinders, Bass, the Wreck of the Sidney Cove, &c, by Geoffrey Rawson.

      Small folio. Original green full morocco, blocked in gilt, top edges gilt; pp. 100 [2]; 9 wood-engravings by John Buckland Wright, these printed in dark green; spine slightly darkened otherwise a very good copy in the slipcase. One of 750 numbered copies, this one of 100 specially bound.. "Another book of daring exploration in our Sea Series. I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green." (Cockalorum 170). The author Geoffrey Rawson's own copy, with his bookplate. Also loosely inserted are: 1) A two page autograph letter (16.4.54) on Golden Cockerel Press headed paper from Christopher Sandford to Geoffrey Rawson (with a chip to top edge and some browning). Sandford, the proprietor of the Golden Cockerel Press, discusses the reviews that Rawson's Nelson's Letters had received. "The Birmingham Post gave us a splendid review; the TLS a long but stupid one - they would!; and Time and Tide a so-so one". He goes on to say that further review copies will be sent out. Sandford then makes an interesting economic point. "Times are not good for selling expensive books but I am satisfied with the progress of Nelson. I feel it is sterling worth and will continue to sell itself out slowly. Of course one cannot compare its sales with those of Flinders which came out at such a good time when everyone had money and little to spend it on." 2) A typed royalties statement (1 June 1955) to Geoffrey Rawson on Golden Cockerel Press headed paper detailing sales from 1954 - 1955. This statement would seem to confirm Sandford's assessment of the marketplace in the letter detailed above. In the year from April 1954 to March 1955 the Press sold 5 ordinary and 2 special copies of Nelson's Letters and 2 ordinary copies of Flinders' Narrative, netting Rawson a total of 2 pounds 8 shillings and 4 pence. 3) A short typed letter (22 May 1947) to Geoffrey Rawson from John King Davis, the dedicatee of the book, thanking him for the copy that had been sent to him and for the honour of the dedication, "Although I feel quite unworthy of the distinction you have conferred upon me, I am most appreciative of your kindness, and thank you for it." 4) A long autograph airletter from John King David to Geoffrey Rawson (6 June 1947). King fulsomely thanks Rawson again for dedicating the book to him before discussing the state of India. This leads into a discussion of what Rawson might include in his upcoming book on the Antarctic before discussing the sorry state of Australian politics.

        Stone tablet from the Cathedral of Notre Dame.

      Cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris, May 26, 1946. 5" X 7.5". "Stone tablet measuring 5” x 7.5”, three-eighths inch thick. Five crosses are carved into the stone, one in each corner and one in the center, beneath which has been affixed the elliptically shaped seal of Cardinal Suhard, Archbishop of Paris. On verso, a 4” x 5” printed label was affixed upon which is stamped the seal of the Archbishopric of Paris. Much of the printing on the label has worn off. In French, headed “Archbishopric of Paris.” “I ... certify that this Stone Altar ... consecrated to the Archbishopric of Paris.” Dated Paris, May 26, 1946. Most of the signature of the Secretary of the Archbishopric certifying this statement has been worn off.Emmanuel Cardinal Suhard (1874-1949), the Archibishop of Paris during the German occupation, was promoted to that position on May 11, 1940, just before the fall of France. Along with many of his colleagues, he supported the Nazi’s Vichy regime. In April 1944, he had welcomed the regime’s “Head of State,” Marshal Petain, to Notre Dame and in June 1944, celebrated the funeral of Philippe Henriot, Minister of Information and Propaganda, assassinated by the Resistance fighters. Because of this, he was despised by the French Resistance. On August 26, 1944, a week after Paris was liberated, Cardinal Suhard was prevented from attending the mass of liberation in his own Cathedral of Notre Dame. The mass was attended by General Charles de Gaulle whose new provisional government had declared the Cardinal persona non grata. Suhard always denied that he had gone beyond his clerical duties in requesting his congregants to accept the Petain regime and in his relations with the German occupying forces."
