A rare collection of books and original government documents, archival press photos, and correspondence relating to the events described by Whittaker Chambers (1901-1961) in his landmark 1952 autobiography Witness. As detailed in his classic spiritual autobiography Witness (1952), and the posthumously published Cold Friday (1964), Chambers was an American writer, translator, and editor who, after years operating as a devoted Communist Party member and Soviet spy, left the Soviet underground in 1938 and testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1948 about the Ware espionage cell. Chambers' testimony before HUAC would lead to the "trial of the century" when, from 1949 to 1950, he was called as a witness to testify against Alger Hiss in the infamous Hiss perjury case. The Witness Collection includes a bright first edition of both Witness and Cold Friday together with rare publications and ephemera relating to Chambers' years as a Communist Party member, his defection from the Soviet underground, and his role as a witness against the Ware Group and Alger Hiss. Readers of Witness will recognize Scott Nearing's The Law of Social Revolution (1926) as the book "in bright red paper covers" (Witness, Regnery History, 2014, p. 173) that Nearing's study group produced in 1926 in an effort to formulate a "law of social revolution." Although Chambers joined the co-operative with "ten or fifteen others" (171), meeting weekly to discuss the concept of social revolution with fellow Communists and sympathizers, he did not ultimately contribute content to the book. This uncommon first edition of Nearing's book has been inscribed by Nearing to James H. Wolfe, who appears to have been a fellow professor and colleague of Nearing. Following what Chambers described as his failure as an "organization Communist," he sought to advance Communism by other means, including literature. In 1931 Chambers composed a short story called Can You Hear Their Voices about "a farmers' rising in the West and the part played in it by an intelligent Communist" (218). The story, which was based upon an actual farmers' rebellion in the American Midwest, became an instant hit across a variety of media, and was ultimately published in the New Masses magazine, highlighted by the New York World-Telegram, published by International Publishers (the official Communist publishing house), and converted into a play by Hallie Flanagan, then head of Vassar's Experimental Theater, and shown in workers' theaters throughout the world. The collection includes the rare 1932 International Publishers pamphlet publication of Chambers' story. Following his defection from the Soviet underground in 1938, Chambers testified before HUAC regarding the espionage activities of a covert organization of Communist agents operating within the American government led by Harold Ware and referred to as the "Ware Group." The collection includes an original 1948 transcript of certain HUAC hearings and testimony, including testimony provided by Elizabeth Bentley, Whittaker Chambers, and Alger Hiss-an exceptional transcript officially stamped as having been delivered by influential HUAC member, Congressman John E. Rankin of Mississippi. The collection also includes an exceptional collection of original mimeographed hearing transcripts from the HUAC testimony of Whittaker Chambers, Alger Hiss, and Adolf Berle, Jr., with questioning from Richard Nixon and other influential HUAC members. Officially prepared for HUAC committeemen and their staffs, these rare and original transcripts offer a unique view into the contentious hearings that would ultimately expose the Ware Group and lead to Alger Hiss's two-count conviction for perjury in 1950. Also included are eighteen original press photographs from the tumultuous years of the HUAC proceedings and Hiss trial, complete with press stamps and archival notes to verso. The capstone of the Witness Collection is a handwritten letter composed by Chambers to C. P. Ives, who wished to quote Chambers on Alger Hiss and the appeal of Communism-both of which were topics that Chambers remarked upon at "Dr. Freedom's house some weeks ago." In a beautifully written response covering five pages (three sheets) on his Pipe Creek Farm letterhead, Chambers responds to Mr. Ives by discussing the twin nature of freedom and responsibility and relating a story of his encounter with a foreign immigrant running a clothing booth at a local livestock show-an encounter that embodied the promise and purpose of American freedom for so many around the world. Chambers ends his letter with a note to Mr. Ives that "there's a very good story here." A rare and original collection of Witness-inspired books, correspondence, and ephemera that document Chambers' remarkable journey from Soviet spy and Communist leader to an enduring champion of the higher values that animate the American spirit.

1664 1st ed NEW YORK George Downing Discourse on DUTCH Settlements Indians 2v
Two exceedingly rare first editions of George Downing's defense of New York!
George Downing was an Irish preacher and political apologist known for his service under Oliver Cromwell in Scotland. In 1664 he wrote a short political letter describing the details of his arrangement of the acquisition of New York from the Dutch. 'A Discourse', as it is called, was written to clear his own name from any misconduct in the exchange. One of the most notable discussions in this work is a report on the miserable interactions of the Dutch settlers with local Indian tribes, as well as business and trade in New York. It should be noted that this work is considered one of the earliest works relating to New York in English! (Stevens).
A year after his first letter was written, he wrote his own reply – a work, which according to 'Rare Americana', was
"privately printed, and relates principally to the affairs of the English and Dutch West… Read More
