New York, N.Y. American Association for a Democratic Germany, 1945. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Pamphlet. 15,  pages. Some discoloration and wear. RARE. Foreword by William Ernest Hocking, Alford Professor Emeritus, Harvard University. This pamphlet includes a brief chronological account of concentration camps in Germany from their inauguration in 1933 until the beginning of the war in 1939, based on contemporary records published in the democratic countries and available to the general public. William Ernest Hocking (August 10, 1873 – June 12, 1966) was an American idealist philosopher at Harvard University. He continued the work of his philosophical teacher Josiah Royce (the founder of American idealism) in revising idealism to integrate and fit into empiricism, naturalism and pragmatism. He said that metaphysics has to make inductions from experience: "That which does not work is not true." His 22 books included works on philosophy and human rights, freedom of the press, and human nature.
London: BBC Books, 1989. Third Printing. Hardcover. 22 cm. Approximately 150 pages Illustrations. Based on the BBC television series, this very funny book takes the form of René Artois' diary, recounting his exploits as a cafe owner and member of the resistance in occupied France during WWII. The television scripts were written by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd. Gordon Fitzgerald Kaye (7 April 1941 – 23 January 2017), known professionally as Gorden Kaye, was an English actor and singer, best known for playing womanizing café owner René Artois in the television comedy series 'Allo 'Allo!. In 1982, David Croft sent Kaye the script for the pilot episode of 'Allo 'Allo! inviting him to play the central character of René Artois. He accepted and appeared in all 84 episodes (the main series ran from 1984, two years after the pilot, until 1992) and 1,200 performances of the stage version. Kaye was the subject of This Is Your Life in 1986 when he was surprised by Eamonn Andrews at the curtain call of the West End stage version of 'Allo 'Allo! at the Prince of Wales Theatre. Kaye returned as René Artois in a 2007 one-off television revival of 'Allo 'Allo! and in a stage show in Brisbane, Australia, at the Twelfth Night Theatre in June and July, alongside Sue Hodge as Mimi Labonq and Guy Siner as Lieutenant Gruber.
