        [Photo Album]: CCC Camp and Various Life Photographs

      Pittsfield, Massachusetts. 1930-1946. Oblong quarto. String-tied album lacking the boards measuring 8" x 11" containing over 400 captioned black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1"x 1" and 9.25" x 7.25". Good only with chips, tears, and lacking the boards. A collection of photographs of a young New England man, captioned as Joseph Guarnieri, as he goes through the Great Depression and into the 1940s.The son of an Italian immigrant, Joseph documents the decades of the 1930s and 40s in a series of photographs seemingly displayed in no particular order. Here his life in New England can be seen through jobs he took on like that of a postal telegraph carrier, seen here in a group photo and riding his bike down a city street, a photograph captioned "barber school" from 1936, one of himself and a young woman captioned, "lifeguard and new acquisition," as well as family shots and vacation photos. Scattered throughout the album are numerous images of the time he spent in a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in Becket, Massachusetts possibly working with a crew constructing roads. Considered the most popular of the New Deal programs, the corps was available to unmarried men ages 18-25 who were members of relief families. As members of the C.C.C. they earned a $30 a month wage, $25 of which was to be sent home, and were provided with housing, food, and clothing. Joseph took pictures of the camp itself with one blurry image captioned "the wash room," as well as his other compatriots posing on hills, in gravel pits, and in front of cars with "CCC Life" written under them. One photo of a tough looking man is captioned "fighter 1934 CCC Camp." One section labeled "Old CCC" shows a picture of two men smiling outside of a tent captioned, "when CCC Camp was in tents."Although he never went into the service, friends of Guarnieri did and their pictures are pasted among the rest of the assortment. Towards the end of the album are drawings, cards, and letters sent to Joe. In one letter from an A.H. Balorch stationed overseas with the Air Engine Group he writes, "I didn't know what happened to you I thought maybe they caught up with you and drafted you. I'm glad they didn't though, I'll shake anybody's hand that managed to keep out." Eventually Joseph started a construction company in Boston Massachusetts, presumably from the skills gained during his time with the CCC. A business card on the final page states, "Joseph D. Guarnieri: Contractor & Jobbing for Cleaning up House Gardens, and also new ideas for gardens."An interesting and complete look at the life of a young man finding his way through the America of 1930s. .

        L'Afrique qui Disparait.

      c. 1930 - Twenty-one silver gelatin prints, postcard size. Very good tonal range and in good condition. This collection consists of postcards made from photographs taken by Casimir Zagourski in Africa between 1924 and 1941, which formed a part of his overal project, "L'Afrique Qui Disparait" (Disappearing Africa). The photos are set in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly known as the Belgian Congo), Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Chad, Kenya, Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Congo-Brazzaville. The postcards depict a variety of aspects of everyday life in these different settings. Casimir Zagourski, of Polish parentage, was born in Ukraine in 1880. After a military career in the Russian air force and the Polish army, he left Eastern Europe and moved to Africa in 1924, settling in Leopoldville, now Kinshasa, Congo, where he began his career as a photographer. During the next seventeen years, until his death in 1941, Zagourski traveled around Central Africa photographing its people, places, and local traditions. At the same time, he established and maintained a store in Leopoldville to sell these images as postcards and large prints. He also exhibited his work at the Paris World's Fair in 1937.

        Fever Pitch.

      New York. Horace Liveright. 1930. - First Edition with the statements: "Copyright by Frank Waters 1930" and "Printed in the United States of America" on the copyright page. "This is the story of a Mexican dancing girl who led a man across the scorching, uninhabitable desert in her avarice for the gold which lay in the mountains behyond. When finally they reached the mountains––and the man who awaited them--there arose a tragedy of human passions which sent only one of the three back to civilization alive. ."Here is the real desert--suffocating heat, blinding light, unending level sands; here are a man and a woman roused to fever pitch by hunger and thirst, by dizziness and pain--their water gone bad, their horses dead, their bodies blistered and sore." A very handsome copy in finely woven orange cloth stamped brightly in blue and silver on the front boards and on the spine. Very clean and tight throughout with a discrete name in ink at the top of the half-title page. With dark, blue-gray topstaining. In the colorful, striking, and scarce dustjacket designed by Paul Wenck printed in red and yellow. The original price of $2.50 is at the top of the inside front flap. Several small chips at the top and bottom of the spine ends and the corners. Light edgewear and two short closed tears at the top and bottom of the front panel and one on the bottom of the rear panel. A very handsome, collectible copy of this tale of passion and avarice reminiscent of "The Treasure of Sierra Madre." Especially unusual in the original dustjacket. First Edition with the statements: "Copyright by Frank Waters 1930" and "Printed in the United States of America" on the copyright page. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      n.p., [c. 1930]. Image approx. 7-1/2 x 6 inches. Pencil and watercolor. Matted . The fantastic fairy shop, set in a dark, mysterious grove of tall trees. William M[itcheson] Timlin was born in Northumberland, England, and studied art in Newcastle before following his parents to South Africa, where he completed his studies in art and architecture.

He also wrote stories and music, and did periodical illustrations. In 1923 he published "The Ship that Sailed to Mars", which has become a fantasy classic. His "The Building of the Fairy City" remained unfinished at his death, apart from a few elegant and imaginative watercolors, such as the one offered here

        This flag and crew patch were flown aboard the Space Shuttle "Columbia" (STS-1) / April 12-14, 1981 / Presented to / Adlai Stevenson / In recognition of the significant contributions you made to the success of this mission.

      - Original space-flown flag (5½" X 4¼") and cloth patch (4¼" X 4 3/4") presented on a 12 3/4" X 16 3/4" cream colored heavy stock, in turn mounted to a 16" X 20" pale blue mat board. Very good. Bit of slight soiling. The cream colored stock bears glossy photographs on the upper left (takeoff) and lower right (landing) corners. At lower left is a circular flute-edged NASA gold foil seal, and the space-flown flag is mounted at upper right -- consisting of the State Seal of Illinois, with the word "ILLINOIS" below, against a white background. The printed text cited above appears immediately below this flag, and the crew patch below this text. JOHN YOUNG (born 1930) signs boldly in black ink to the left of the patch, while ROBERT L. CRIPPEN (born 1937) signs to the right. The Columbia STS-1 flight was called by NASA "The boldest test flight in history." It was the first orbital flight of the Space Shuttle program, lasting 54½ hours and orbiting the Earth 37 times; commanded by John Young and piloted by Robert Crippen, it was the first to use solid-fuel rockets in a U.S. manned launch. These rare relics were presented to Illinois' then-senator, ADLAI E. STEVENSON III (born 1930), who was instrumental in guiding U.S. space policy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
