Views: 125

Charles A. Lindbergh's copy, signed and inscribed to him by his fellow seeker of peace, justice and historical truth, Harry Elmer Barnes [1889-1968], whom Murray Rothbard eulogized as "the last of the truly erudite historians." A truly magnificent provenance for this work which "shows how the extension of military operations to civilian populations and property, and the increasingly destructive nature of total warfare, menace the very future of humanity and Western civilization. [This work] makes it clear how the [Nuremberg] war-crimes trials, far from curbing the barbarism of present-day warfare, will make it absolutely certain that every known form of destructiveness and mass-murder, however fiendish and devastating, will surely be brought forth in the desperate effort to avoid a defeat which, in all future wars, will mean the summary liquidation of the political leaders and top military officers of the vanquished countries." - dust jacket. Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, among others, would probably concur. As the most prominent spokesman for the America First Committee which sought to keep America out of WWII, Lindbergh most likely endorsed the conclusions of this book, first issued in England in 1948 under a nom de plume by Veale, "a lawyer and student of history with a lifelong interest in the cause of peace and international justice." - xi. On page vii Veale refers specifically to Barnes by stating "in accordance with what Dr. Harry Elmer Barnes has called 'The Historical Blackout,' the bulk of the British press, newspaper and periodical alike, rigidly ignored the [first edition of this book]. Not one London newspaper with a nation-wide circulation reviewed it." Eventually, this work was issued in 18 editions and three languages. pp. xvii, [1], 305. Index. Bibliography. Black and white reproductions of photos. Unmarked with average wear to publisher's red cloth lettered in gilt. Narrow openings along each hinge bear narrow remnants of earlier tape repairs. Small erasure patch atop front free endpaper. Tanning to photo endpapers. Moderate wear to dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. Housed in new custom acid-free slipcase. An extraordinary memento from the collection of Charles Lindbergh [1902-1974], the legendary American aviator who rose to global prominence in 1927 by being the first to fly nonstop from New York to Paris.
