Printed photographic postcard, measuring 5-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches, inked manuscript hand on verso, stamps and postmarks above address. $3600.Printed photographic postcard depicting the Lahori Gate in Fort Delhi addressed entirely in Eleanor RooseveltÂ’s hand to a Mr. Robert Largo and with a message also written by Roosevelt that reads: “Dear Mr. Largo, Thank you for your wise note. Very Sincerely. Eleanor Roosevelt.”This wonderful autograph postcard was written during Eleanor RooseveltÂ’s trip through Asia in 1952. Her travels took her through the Middle East, then to Pakistan, then India, and finally to Nepal. Ultimately, her favorable impressions helped to influence AmericaÂ’s perceptions of India as both a potential democracy and as a potential ally. In a speech, Roosevelt said, “So I've come back with tremendous hope that India is going to be the country of Asia”—a statement that had consequences for IndiaÂ’s future in trade and politics. With two India stamps affixed to verso and usual postal markings.A fine autograph signed item.

        The War Speeches of the Rt Hon Winston S Churchill

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1952. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed, first printing set of the three-volume "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches, published during Churchill's second and final premiership. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - Member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner, painter. But his enduring preeminence owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle.” Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. Charles Eade played a critical role in their original publication, as well as in the publication of this edition issued during Churchill's second premiership. Charles Eade (1903-1964) was a noted figure in British journalism. In 1938 he became editor of the Sunday Dispatch, a post he held until 1957. Eade was also an early radio sports commentator, and during the Second World War served as public relations advisor to Louis Mountbatten. In 1942 Eade stepped in as compiler of Churchill's wartime speech volumes, replacing Churchill's son, Randolph, who had been called to wartime service. Notably, he offered his services free of charge, stating, "my reward for the task would be the pleasure of doing it" (7 May 1941 letter from Charles Eade to Kathleen Hill). Eade ultimately edited six of the seven wartime volumes - all except the first, Into Battle. For this "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches, Eade returned to the role. In 1952, during Churchill's second premiership, the publisher reissued the War Speeches as a new, three-volume edition. This edition is, in many ways, superior to the original seven wartime editions in both aesthetics and content. Gone is the cheap economy paper of the wartime editions. The binding is a heavy navy cloth with attractive, uniform dust jackets. Further, the books each measure a substantial 10 x 6.25 inches. New speeches are added, as is a very helpful index. Some of the original speeches considered peripheral are eliminated while others are retitled and chronological dates are replaced with brief transitional or introductory notes. This first edition, first printing set features very good plus volumes in very good dust jackets. The blue cloth bindings remain square and tight with bright spine gilt and only minor wear to extremities and incidental scuffing. The contents remain crisp, notably with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. We note mild age-toning to the otherwise clean page edges. The first printing dust jackets are all unclipped, retaining the original front flap prices. The jackets show only fractional loss to a few spine ends and corners, with modest overall wear to extremities and light soiling most evident at the lower spines. Shelf presentation is nonetheless quite respectable, with the spines showing only light toning, uniform across all three spines. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A263.1(I-III).a, Woods/ICS A136(a.1), Langworth p.303.

        Old Man and the Sea

      1952. First Edition . HEMINGWAY, Ernest. The Old Man and the Sea. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1952. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $4200.First edition of Hemingway's classic story of Santiago and his epic battle with the marlin and the sharks, winning him the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and contributing to his award of the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature.William Faulkner, who reviewed The Old Man and the Sea for the magazine Shenandoah, called the novel Hemingway's best: ""Time may show it to be the best single piece of any of us. I mean his and my contemporaries"" (Baker, 593-94). ""Here is the master technician once more at the top of his form, doing superbly what he can do better than anyone else"" (New York Times). In this short novel Hemingway perfected the minimalist style that he had been honing and refining throughout his career. While working on it he wrote to Scribner, ""This is the prose that I have been working for all my life that should read easily and simply and seem short and yet have all the dimensions of the visible world and the world of a man's spirit. It is as good prose as I can write as of now"" (Letters, 738). With Scribner's ""A"" beneath copyright notice. First-edition dust jacket, with no mention of the Nobel Prize. Hanneman A24a. Book with faint staining to cloth, bright price-clipped dust jacket with only light rubbing. A handsome near-fine copy.
