        The War Speeches 1940-1945

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1946. 1st Edition. Paperback. Near fine. This is the first collected edition of Churchill's war speeches, published as a paperback only in 1946. The book measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches, bound in pale blue paper wraps with turn in flaps like a DJ, and with contents printed on cheap pulpy paper. With only one softcover printing, this has proven a scarce and fragile edition - among the most difficult of Churchill's books for collectors to find in respectable condition. Offered here is an unusually excellent example for collectors. The covers are remarkably bright and clean, retaining beautiful blue color and showing no losses, even on the spine. The only exterior flaws to report are a slight lean to the spine, fractional wear to the very ends of the rear hinge, and a small triangular crease at the lower front corner. The contents are age-toned, as is unavoidable given the pulp paper, but otherwise clean and tight. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind. The front flap is neatly price-clipped. The book is protected in a removable, archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A224, Woods/ICS A113, Langworth p.241.

        Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo - Scheherazade: Programme cover concept drawing

      New York: , c.1946-7. Gouache on Bainbridge Number 80 art board (509 × 382 mm). Corners a little bumped, tape-mark verso, but overall very good. Unsigned, but possibly the work of Corrado Cagli, who did other not dissimilar work for the company during this period. As an Italian Jew Cagli fled Rome for Paris in 1938 when the enactment of the Manifesto of Race showed Mussolini's intentions to align his policies on race with Hitler's Germany. Cagli subsequently settled in New York, becoming an American citizen and enlisting in the US Army during the Second World War. On his return from service in Europe, where he had been involved in the D-Day landings and the liberation of Buchenwald, Cagli executed design work for a number of theatrical and ballet companies, including Lincoln Kirstein's New York City Ballet, and the exiled Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. In 1948, Cagli returned to Italy, becoming part of the second phase of the Scuola Romano, moving further into abstraction in a conscious reaction to the Neoclassicism of the Novecento Italiano with its taint of Fascism, but within this context continuing to work in the theatre, producing costume and set designs for the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, and also for the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

        Heed the Thunder

      New York: Greenberg. 1946. First. First edition. A fairly worn, but presentable, good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed by the author in pencil: "For Lois and Jim[?] very gratefully Jim Thompson 2-20-46." We do not know who the recipients were, but curiously, the dedicatees were Lois and Elliott McDowell. Whether this is the same Lois, with another companion is not immediately clear to us. Books signed by Thompson are very rare. We have sold three other books signed by Thompson in the past 20 years, and of those, two were considerably later paperback titles. The only other inscribed hardcover was another copy of this title inscribed about ten months after this one, thus making this the earliest inscribed Thompson book we have seen. To put it in context, we have handled more books signed by either J.D. Salinger or Thomas Pynchon than we have of Thompson. A superb copy of an exceptionally uncommon book, the second of only three hardcover novels published during the hardboiled author's lifetime. .

      New York, 8 April 1946. Letter. Normal creases from folding. Near Fine and a superb letter. Exceptional two-page Autograph Letter of @435 words on two separate sheets completely in the hand of and SIGNED by Charles Olson to poet, editor, and librettist Ronald Duncan, a literary acquaintance of T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. In part: "I have had [T.S.] Eliot's regrets on 'our' mss, as you are gracious to call it. His letter crossed me from [Ezra] Pound urging him to publish. Eliot said he thought it ought to be published, but in America first. It looks now as though it will be. Reynal & Hitchcock plan to take it, with changes, and expansions in the second half.... The fact is England has always been more hospitable to Melville, from his own books on.... It would be luck if Eliot would consider.... Pound said: Duncan will help. Will you please--and take my thanks? I am asking Eliot, if the new plan doesn't take, to let you have the mss. Do with it what you think best. It may well be that Eliot's doubts of an English audience may obtain for others as well. I should like to think not. But you are boss. I don't think when I wrote you last, I had read the Pisan Cantos. They are beautiful,and Pound last summer, after the torture of the 'Gorilla Cage,' had more power over his line than ever. He is fretting at Laughlin for not getting his Confucius out and not pushing the Cantos more, but he is generally in better spirits, has now the privilege of games[?] in the prison yard, and reads with ease." SIGNED "Charles Olson." Magnificent content.

        The Heavenly Tenants

      New York: Harper & Brothers. (1946). First. First edition. Quarto. Pictures by Ilonka Karasz. Some foxing to the page edges, very near fine in very good dustwrapper with two chips on the front panel and some short tears. Author's scarce children's book, illustrated by a New Yorker colleague. This copy with a long Inscription by Maxwell at a later date, to an important editor: "May 7, 1980. Dear Bob, It was the artist's idea to put a salt-box house on a Wisconsin farm, and since the illustrator wanted it done, and also was my friend, I didn't have the heart to ask her to do it over again in the interests of verisimilitude. But the farm is a real farm, ten miles from Portage, and so far as I know unchanged to this day. I don't believe there has been much change in the heavens, either. You will find that same farm in 'Bright Center of Heaven' if you succeed in getting a copy, a thing I would not consider possible for anyone but you. Scarce as hen's teeth. But so is this. W.M." A wonderful inscription in an uncommon book. .

The introduction of the book poignantly describes its purpose: "The incentive to produce this collection gave us our deepest desire to show the world the crimes of Germany, to give expression to the throttled cry of pain of the Jews. The desire to bring back our memories of Jewish Settlements which drowned in torrents of Jewish Blood. May the world have this knowledge and ponder on it. When words are too weakand too poor to convey the destruction and extermination of Jewish life, may these pictures found by accident on arrested SS soldiers, speak for themselves of the bestiality which will forever bring shame on human kind.
