Why England Slept-John F Kennedy-First Edition
Item #: NEW-0017208

Click image to enlarge
I believe this to be a first edition.  It was published in New York in 1940 by Wilfred Funk. I bought this from a book seller who stated it was a first edition and my research has borne it out.  It is in poor condition with a damaged dust cover.  There is staining on the end pages but the interior pages are clean. There is a stamp on the interior pasted down blank page which indicated that it was "a gift of the People of the United States through the Victory Book Campaign A.L.A -ARC-U.S.O To the Armed forces of the Merchant Marine. Binding is true though the paper was worn off at the interior spine.The dust cover is a mess as can be seen in the scan. Priced at what I paid for it 20 years ago.

Why England Slept is the published version of a thesis written by John F. Kennedy while in his senior year at Harvard College. Its title was an allusion to Winston Churchill's 1938 book While England Slept, which also examined the buildup of German power.

Parker Davis Jugate Celluloid Clicker
Item #: NEW-0012087

Click image to enlarge
Attractive one and a quarter inch celluloid that looks like a button but is actually a clicker.  This is only the second one I have ever seen and the last one was many many years ago and went very high.  Looks perfect to the eye but a strong loupe, a 10X one, shows quite a few defects.  I don't recommend anyone use such strong magnification as you will see imperfections. The exception of course is when you are buying buttons.  There are some pin pricks in the celluloid and many deep indentations and some light scratches. Some foxing to the left edge of Parker's oval  and some small grey spotting under that. I can send a high resolution scan to anyone interested.
