To Thomas Mann
Stamford, Overlook Press, 1937. The first separate printing of an article by Thompson published in the New York Herald Tribune the previous week, welcoming Mann to the United States from Switzerland where he had been in exile since the Nazis rise to power. In small part: "We are glad you are here, Thomas Mann. No nation can exile you. Yours is a larger citizenship... Wherever men love reason, hate obscurism, shun darkness, turn toward light, know gratitude, praise virtue, despise meanness, kindle to sheer beauty; wherever minds are sensitive, hearts generous and spirits free -- there is your home. In welcoming you, a country but honors itself." One sheet folded to make four 10" x 13-1/4" pages. Fine. OCLC locates 12 copies. [#032938] $75
