         Le Petit Prince. Avec dessins de l'auteur. (The Little Prince). True first edition. Limited to only 260 copies signed by Saint-Exupery.

      Reynal & Hitchcock 1943 - The rarest (and the only true first) edition of the Prince. Number 119 of a scant war-time limited edition of only 260 copies printed in America from the author's original French manuscript. The book was published simultaneously in an edition translated into English by Katherine Woods & limited to 525 copies but it's uncontroversial that the book was written in French and that the English translation was dictated by the publisher and certainly unread by the author who proudly didn't speak or comprehend English (the signature sheets were signed separately & then inserted into the finished books). One might (though Saint-Exupery certainly wouldn't) excuse Woods' bowdlerized translation of the original manuscript (e.g., rendering of "tippler" for what should have been translated as "drunkard," and substitution of "charming" for "ravishing"), but not the translation of the author's "ami" into "sheep:" "Il était une fois un petit prince qui ___ avait besoin d'un ami" ("Once upon a time there was a little prince who ___had need of a friend") into "Once upon a time there was a little prince who ___had need of a sheep." Consider as well the less egregious description of baobab trees as "large as castles" whereas the original French is (& is purposefully intended to be) "grands comme des églises." Chip to head of darkened spine jacket; closed ¼ inch tear to front fore edge. See supplied images and please request further detailed images to assess jacket condition. Other than archival prophylactic strengthening of jacket head, no ownership marks, no paper burns, no inserts, no labels, no sophistications, no repairs, no additions, no alterations. Publisher's faded "119" limitation penned to jacket spine. Description copyright 2017 by William Chrisant.; Octavo; 93 pages; Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         THE LITTLE PRINCE

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. No. 29 OF 525 SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. This is a really excellent copy in dust jacket of the first printing of Saint-Exupéry's final volume, a work translated into 250 languages and one of the most frequently published books of the 20th century; a children's book on the surface, it is actually a profoundly philosophical adult fable. It was written while the dashing French writer, aristocrat, and aviator was in exile in New York, following the fall of France in 1940, a time of considerable distress over the fate of his country. The narrator of the story is a pilot who has crashed in the Sahara--as the author had in 1935 (that incident is recounted in his award-winning "Wind, Sand, and Stars"). The pilot meets a small boy, a prince from a distant asteroid, who tells the story of his life, imparting the wisdom he has gained in his travels from planet to planet. The overall theme is encapsulated in the observation, "One sees clearly only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eye." Saint Exupéry's biographer Stacy Schiff noted that "rarely have an author and a character been so intimately bound together as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his Little Prince." Although written in French, our English version of the work appeared first, while France was still in the hands of the Nazis. Just weeks after publication, Saint-Exupéry (1900-44) left to join the Free French forces. His plane disappeared over the Mediterranean in 1944.. 232 x 185 mm. (9 x 7 1/4"). 1 p.l., 91, [1] pp., [1] leaf. Translated from the French by Katherine Woods. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. No. 29 OF 525 SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. ORIGINAL TAN CLOTH AND PICTORIAL DUST JACKET. Housed in a custom quarter morocco black cloth box. Numerous full-page and in-text color illustrations by the author. Half-inch chip to head of dust jacket (affecting one letter in author's name), tiny snag near title (no loss), a little light soiling, extremities of binding faintly rubbed, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and bright, in a good dust jacket.

         [Handmade Journals]: A Soldier's Experience at Home and Abroad, 1943-1945 [with] For Gentlemen Only, 1945-1947 (with later additions)

      (East St. Louis, Illinois). Near Fine. Two small quartos volumes. Bound typed manuscripts with hand-painted cloth covers and pictorial endpapers. A Soldier's Experience at Home and Abroad, 1943-1945. 324pp. with three added maps and tipped-in letter; For Gentlemen Only, 1945-1947 variously paginated [approximately 300pp], with a few holograph text illustrations. Mild external wear, else fine. The first volume is Signed by Spotz.A pair of substantial, elaborately produced, and highly unusual handmade books, reflecting the experiences, preoccupations, and humor of an enlisted serviceman in World War II. Created by Robert F. "Bob" Spotz, an Army quartermaster who saw service in the 347th Quartermaster Battalion in Accra, Gold Coast (now Ghana) and the 4152 Quartermaster Battalion in North Africa. Spotz mustered out of the Army in 1945 as a Staff Sergeant; genealogical websites provide no further details on his life or post-army career, but we do find a 1998 death notice for a "Robert F. Spotz" at Sun City Center, Florida.The first title provides a meticulous, almost day-by-day manuscript recollection of the author's wartime service, beginning with basic training in Virginia and ending with quartermaster duty in Italy and North Africa. Spotz is less concerned with recording the larger events of the war than with conveying a realistic picture of what daily life was like for a rank-and-file enlisted man, and he accomplishes this in an artless, vernacular style: despite frequent misspellings and grammatical errors the manuscript is deeply engaging and unquestionably authentic. Of added interest is a letter, tipped into the manuscript following the final page of text, addressed to Spotz by one "Benjamin Ansah-Okrofi" of Accra (then Gold Coast, now Ghana), who is identified by context as a civilian typist assigned to Spotz's unit who produced the typed manuscript of this memoir. In the letter, dated 1947, Mr. Ansah-Okrofi recounts these recently past events and complains that, since the Army's departure, life has been reduced to mere subsistence for residents of Accra.The second manuscript is a rather eccentric compendium of racy, and at times pornographic materials, including jokes, one-liners, short-stories, and doggerel verse gathered by Spotz from around the globe during his years of military service. In his foreword Spotz states: "The following fictitious stories and poems were compiled by me in the United States, Italy, North-Africa and on the Equator at the Gold Coast. There is very little doubt that you have ever read or heard any of the stories in this book. Many were given to me that were written in a foreign language, which of course had to first be translated for me [...] read at your own risk and happy reading to you all... ." Though the foreword is dated 1943-45, the pagination is not continuous and the text includes several additions that were obviously made later (with one insertion dated as late as 1978!) suggesting the manuscript may have been the lifelong project of a connoisseur of racy stories.Together, a significant manuscript journal of the times during World War Two, paired with a remarkable work of amateur anthologizing, each housed in an exceptional hand-painted vernacular binding.

         Typed Draft of Arturo Toscanini's "To The People of America," with Corrections in Toscanini's Hand

      N/P 1943 - New York, September 3, 1943. A late typed draft of Arturo Toscanini's "To The People of America," which appeared ten days later in Life Magazine. Corrections in the hand of Walter and Arturo Toscanini. From the Toscanini estate. "On 13 September 1943 the editorial page of Life Magazine was occupied by an article entitled "To the People of America," and signed by Arturo Toscanini; It was the only extensive declaration he ever wrote - and it was about politics, not music. The article had originally been intended as a letter to President Roosevelt and the first drafts had been prepared for Arturo Toscanini by the Italian historians in exile Gaetano Salvemini and Giorgio La Plana, who were both teaching at Harvard University at the time. They knew that their beliefs and Arturo Toscanini's coincided perfectly, and they wanted the letter to appear over his signature because his fame was much greater than theirs. In their letter to President Roosevelet, the exiles stated their hopes and fears for Italy's immediate future, and they tried - as the text illustrates - to influence allied policy toward their native country." Harvey Sachs, The Letters of Arturo Toscanini, page 389. Sachs wrote in his 1978 biography of Toscanini that Toscanini wrote the article on his own, but then found evidence to the contrary. Regardless of its hidden origins, this letter was a defining moment in Toscanini's career in the United States. This copy, from September 3, would have been one of the final drafts. The text is nearly identical to the published version with a few small changes - "defying everything" is added in the fourth paragraph of the published version, the "." marks are replaced by simple periods in a few instances, and "just" has been replaced by "righteous" in the published version. Strangely, the one error in AT's hand - moving the word "either" in the sixth paragraph - did not make it into the printed version. A remarkable piece of Toscanini ephemera. Four pages, carbon paper, with text on rectos only. Excellent condition overall with some normal tanning. A few stray corrections in pencil, which an accompanying folder from the estate states are in Walter's hand. Please contact us for additional pictures or information about this item.

This tiny force was sent from Palestine to Baghdad to deal with the effects of the "Golden Square" coup among pro-Nazi Iraqi military officers. Despite the air support extended to the Iraqis by the German and Italian air forces, the operation was a complete success for the British column, Baghdad falling on May 30, 1941. The author's poignant poem appears on a front leaf.

The spine of the dustwrapper has minor wear to the heel with chipping to the head just extending to "The" on the spine and to the edges of both panels. The rear panel is soiled, as usual, and the front panel is very attractive. The dustwrapper retains the original printed price. All in all, a nice example. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper without any restoration whatsoever [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Kurze Zusammenstellung der Bekämpfungsmaßnahmen gegen die wichtigsten Schädlinge - Anhang: Anweisung zum Bau behelfsmäßiger Entwesungsanlagen (Allgemeine Vorschriften über Bau und Betrieb von Entwesungsanlagen und Behandlung des Entwesungsgutes / Temperatur und Einwirkungszeiten / Temperaturmessung und Erfolgskontrolle / Behelfsmäßige Anlagen für Heißluft / Behelfsmäßige Anlagen für strömenden Wasserdampf / Behelfsmäßige Badeanlagen / Ortsfeste Entlausungsanstalten / Schutzmaßnahmen für Bedienungspersonal / Weitere Maßnahmen zur Verhütung einer Verlausung der Truppe - Schrifttum (mit Titeln wie: Tesch und Stabenow, Die kleine Testafibel über Zyklon / Die kleine Testa-Fibel für Normal-Gaskammern). - Heft 3 der Reihe "Arbeitsanweisungen für Klinik und Laboratorium des Hygiene-Instituts der Waffen-SS, Berlin". - "Die schlechten hygienischen Verhältnisse in den früheren polnischen und sowjetischen Gebieten, das Auftreten von im deutschen Raum überhaupt nicht oder doch nur ausnahmsweise vorkommenden Seuchen zwingen jeden, der für die Gesunderhaltung des deutschen Menschen verantwortlich ist, sich vordringlich mit der Bekämpfung von Krankheitserregern und Krankheitsüberträgern zu befassen. Die hier gegebene Anweisung soll in kurzer, zusammengefasster Form dem wenig geschulten truppenärztlichen Hilfspersonal die Möglichkeit geben, die Aufgaben und Ziele der Seuchenbekämpfung zu erkennen, und ihm bei der Erlangung der praktischen Durchführung, soweit es dafür zuständig ist, behilflich sein. Darüber hinaus soll das Büchlein zur Auffrischung des Wissens von Truppenärzten und ausgebildeten Sanitätsdienstgraden dienen, die in den Ostgebieten, fast stets auf sich allein gestellt, Maßnahmen durchführen oder überwachen müssen, die sonst von staatlichen Stellen, beamteten und besonders geschulten Ärzten, Desinfektoren usw. durchgeführt werden. Eine kurze Arbeitsanweisung zum Bau behelfsmäßiger Entwesungsanlagen soll die vordringliche Bekämpfung des Fleckfiebers auch unter den primitivsten Verhältnissen gewährleisten und hat die Hinzuziehung eines medizinisch-technisch geschulten Fachmannes notwendig gemacht. SS-Obersturmführer (F) Dipl.-Ing. Gerstein möchte ich an dieser Stelle für seine Beratung in allen technischen Fragen meinen Dank aussprechen" (aus dem Vorwort).- "Zyklon. Ein Entwesungsmittel, das neben der Blausäure einen Reizstoff enthält, ist das Zyklon der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Schädlingsbekämpfung (Degesch), welches etwa 98 % reine Blausäure und etwa 2 % Reizstoff, der gleichzeitig als Stabilisator dient, enthält. Das Gemisch wird in flüssigem Zustand durch eine poröse Masse aufgesaugt und in luftdicht verschlossenen Büchsen geliefert. Der Doseninhalt verdunstet nach Ausstreuen. Anwendung: Blausäure und Zyklon werden wegen ihrer guten Wirksamkeit gegenüber sämtlichen Schädlingen zur Entwesung von Kleidungsstücken, vor allen Dingen aber zur Entwesung ganzer Gebäude benutzt. Stets muss wegen der starken und blitzschnellen Giftwirkung das ganze Haus, Unterkunft usw. von Menschen geräumt sein. Der Gebrauch von Blausäure und Zyklon ist nur staatlich konzessionierten Stellen, die über ausreichend geschultes, geprüftes und zugelassenes Personal verfügen und die Gewähr führt ein ordnungsgemäßes Arbeiten mit Blausäure und Zyklon bieten, den Dienststellen der Wehrmacht und der Waffen-SS innerhalb ihrer Dienstbereiches sowie den Anstalten des Reiches und der Länder für Forschungszwecke erlaubt. Die Schulung von Zivilpersonen erfolgt durch folgende zur Ausbildung zugelassene Firmen: Degesch / Frankfurt am Main, Heerdt-Lingler GmbH (Heli) / Frankfurt am Main und Tesch und Stabenow Internationale Gesellschaft für Schädlingsbekämpfung mbH (TESTA) / Hamburg. Die Prüfung von ausgebildeten Zivilpersonen erfolgt durch das zuständige Gesundheitsamt. Die Zulassungen nimmt der Reichsernährungsminister im Einvernehmen mit dem Reichsinnenminister vor. Für die Zulassung zur Behandlung von kleinen Objekten bis zu 3000 cbm ist die oberste Landesbehörde (das die Volksgesundheitsbelange bearbeitende Ministerium) zuständig" / "Reine Blausäure wird wegen der außerordentlich großen Giftigkeit ohne Warnreiz in der Praxis heute wenig angewandt. Verwendung findet fast ausschließlich Zyklon, das sowohl zur Entwesung von Kleidern, Pelz, Ledersachen, Uniformen, Tornistern, Decken usw. in Gaskammern als auch zur Durchgasung ganzer Gebäudeteile, Unterkünfte usw. benutzt wird. Zyklon ist zur Zeit das beste chemische Entwesungsmittel für Großdurchgasungen. Eine Schädigung des Entwesungsgutes tritt nicht ein . . . Zyklon wird in die zu durchgasenden Räume ausgestreut. Die nach der Durchgasung verbleibenden Rückstände sind ungiftig" - Verf. wurde 1943 stellvertretender Amtschef im Amt XVI des Führungshauptamts der Sanitätsinspektion der Waffen-SS und habilitierte sich 1943 mit der hier vorliegenden Schrift.

         Shrewsbury School Library bindings : Catalogue raisonné

      Oxford, University Press for Shrewsbury School, 1943. (35 cm), xl, 183 (1) pp., colour frontispiece (with tissue guardsheet) and 62 plates (mainly from photographs by Percy William Pilcher). Publisher's red cloth, white cloth spine lettered in gilt. - The Shrewsbury School library was founded under Queen Elizabeth and the first books reached the library before 1600; most were purchased out of school funds, or were presented by benefactors, and bindings decorated by panel stamps or rolls therefore outnumber gold-tooled bindings by a wide margin. Oldham worked on the catalogue for twelve years, during which he visited 120 libraries and took rubbings or notes of 6000 bindings, painstakingly listing the binding materials, signed and unsigned, documenting the migration of tools from one binder to another, and the result is much more than a normal catalogue raisonné. G.D. Hobson wrote "there can be no doubt that [Oldham] has handled far more English sixteenth-century bindings than anyone now living", while marvelling at Oldham's tally of 336 bindings by John Reynes, and 156 hitherto unrecorded with the tools of the Cambridge binder Godfrey van Graten (from a review in The Times Literary Supplement, 9 October 1943, p.492). In addition, the book contains a useful introduction on the interpretation of ownership inscriptions and other evidence of ownership, and on distinguishing English from foreign bindings by their structure and other physical features. "A model for a future History of Bookbinding in England which still remains to be written" (E.P. Goldschmidt, Catalogue 95, 1951, p.41 item 95). B.H. Breslauer, The Uses of bookbinding literature, New York 1986, p.24. ¶ Copy 163 of 200 printed. Exlibris: H.E. The Governor of Bengal (perhaps Sir John Arthur Herbert, colonial governor of Bengal, 1939-1943), sold by Christie's South Kensington, 13 September 1985, lot 16. Very good copy.
