124 ALBERTI, Rafael. MALLAN, Lloyd, trans. Poets of the Year series). Selected Poems of Rafael Alberti. First Edition.
New Directions, New York, 1944,

Unpaginated. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with red decoration of bull to front cover, red and black lettering to front cover, french flaps. A volume in The Poets of the Year series. "So great has grown the fame of Garcia Lorca that another modern Spanish poet -- Rafael Alberti -- who deserves to rank with hum has been unjustly obscured. Alberti, a friend of Lorca's is now in exile, living in Argentina. It is hard to present an important poet in a brief selection, but Mr. Mallan has made an excellent choice of significant poems from different phases of Alberti's evolution.His early lyrics, his poems in surrealist vein, his great elegy for the de ath of the bullfighter Ignacio Sanchez Mejias, and finally poems inspired by the Spanish Civil War are all represented here. To them Mr. Mallan has prefaced a brief but revelatory account of Alberti's work." - from the front flap. Includes the following poems: "Three Poems from 'Marinero en Tierra':Vendor's Submarine Cry, If My Voice Should Die On Land, and Physical Geogr aphy', "Open Letter", "Buster Keaton Searches Through the Forest for His Sweetheart, a Full-Blooded Cow (A Poem for Recitation)", "Guests of the Mists(Thre Recollections of Heaven, in homage to Gustavo Adolfo Becquer)", "Tha t Burning Horse Through the Lost Forests (An Elegy for Fernando Villalon, 1881-1930)", "To See and Not to See You (An Elegy for Ignacio Sanchez Mejias)", and "Four War Poems: They Fell and Did Not Fall, The Soldiers Sleep, Nocturne, And After the War".

"The Great Adven turer is a fresh and lively narrative of the Trojan War, that conflict which was first recounted in the ancient Grecian mytns about the deeds of gods and heroes and men. Homer, the half-legendary poet ot the ninth century B.C., derived from these myths his vivid account, in The Iliad, of the long siege of Troy. In The Odyssey the poet told of the long wanderings of the Greek hero Odysseus in his attempt to reach home atter Troy had fallen. The Great Adventurer combines these stories in a single account.

Illustrated. 8vo, dark grey cloth with gilt titles to spine. "The Second World War is the subject of a large and growing literature. We have heard from he novelists and the newsmen, from the politicians and the generals. This book, however, tells an entirely different story. It tells the story of an ordinary airman, a Canadian who served as a navigator in the RCAF from 1941 until 1945, first in the Boston and then in the famous Mosquito. The narrative is based on personal diariesand is all the more moving for the simple, straightforward manner in which Douglas Alcorn, who flew 51 operations against the enemy and won the DFC, describes the events that helped to decide the outcome of the war. To the military historian, this book will be of unique value ion that it establishes the importance of Intruder operations in the ultimate defeat of the Luftwaffe. To the general reader it will be something more than that: an exciting, highly readable and extremely touching account of what it is like to be young and to live, gaily and with dignity, in the presence of death." - from the dust jacket.
