        Scarce Typed Letter Signed on "Pierpont-Morgan Library" stationery

      New York, 1931. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 8 inches, New York City, February 7, 1931, to acclaimed military surgeon Frank Lester Pleadwell, in full: "In reply to your letter of January 31, we will be very glad to have you make any use you desire of the Halleck and Drake's Croaker poems in this library, of which we sent you Photostats." Minor fraying at the right-hand margin, but still in very good condition. African-American librarian, who as the personal assistant to J.P. Morgan, and later his estate, from 1905 to 1948, personally helped amass one of the world's greatest libraries of books, rare manuscripts, and art. Note: Belle da Costa Greene was born Belle Marian Greener, the daughter of the first black man to graduate Harvard, changed her name, obliterated her true background, invented a Portuguese ancestry, and successfully "passed" for white in turn-of-the-century New York Society, never acknowledging her African lineage. All of this might help to explain why she is absent from some of the most prestigious and permanent collections of Africa-American history. There are currently no offerings on the internet of anything signed by da Costa Greene.

        PHOTOGRAPH ***Signed***

      - Inscribed "To Mark / Love & Kisses, / Mamie Van Doren" in black ink. Mamie Van Doren (born February 6, 1931) is a United States actress, model, and entertainer. Van Doren was born as Joan Lucille Olander in Rowena, South Dakota. Her mother named her after Joan Crawford. In the early 1940s her family moved to Southern California. She entered beauty contests, winning the title of Miss Palm Springs in 1948, and was a singer for various local bands. She appeared in various bit parts in movies starting in 1950. That year she had her brief first marriage to Jack Newman. She posed for famous pin-up girl artist Alberto Vargas in 1951. In 1953 she was signed by Universal Studios with the hope she could bring the studio success similar to that of Marilyn Monroe at 20th Century Fox. The studio gave Joan Olander her new name of Mamie Van Doren. The Mamie may have been inspried by Mamie Eisenhower, wife of newly inaugurated President Dwight D. Eisenhower. She changed her name on January 20, 1953. While Van Doren didn't atain the level of stardom of Monroe, she did become one of the era's leading sex symbols. With Jayne Mansfield, Mamie, and Marylin were known as the Three M's. Van Doren played more of the bad girl archetype. She appeared in some of the first Hollywood films to include Rock & Roll music. She became identified with this rebellious style, and made some Rock records in the 1950s. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photo Album - British Burma & India - Rare Views of Ngapali Beach

      Burma, 1931. Burma, India, 1931-1936. Photograph album of a high-ranking officer who served with the Rangoon Battalions of the Burma Military Police, containing scenes in Burma from 1931-1933, mostly centered in Rangoon where he was posted, as well as tours throughout India from 1935-1936, and a scant few images from a leave taken in England in between. Contains 113 gelatin silver print photographs and 1 photographic postcard, with detailed manuscript captions, mounted with corners onto black cardstock leaves. Oblong 8vo. black cloth 'Cambrian' album measuring approximately 29,5 x 24 cm. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 8,5 x 6 cm, and the largest 11 x 15 cm. Some wear to boards, otherwise in Very Good Condition. Over half of the album is centered in British Burma, with 64 photographs providing a unique window into the charmed life of a colonial military police officer, as well as a glimpse of indigenous custom. Identified only as George, with the initials G.C.B., the officer served under Brigadier John Francis Bowerman (1857-1934) who is seen in the album with George, and who is renowned for his leadership of the para-military police force in Burma. Views center around officer George's travels, special events of the Burma Military Police, equestrian competitions and sporting events in which he participated. Some significant persons connected to colonial Burma are seen in the album, including Captain John Francis Bowerman Assistant Commandant of the Burma Military Police, and Colonel Welbourne, Chief of the Police Service. The original photographs of Ngapali from the era of British rule are especially scarce, this album containing eight (8) lovely views. Officer George and his wife stayed in a large bungalow on the beach there. Here he observes local fishermen working together at hauling long nets into the Bay of Bengal. The earliest event captured in these views is the Proclamation Parade held 1 January 1931 in Rangoon (Yangon), where officer George was posted. Other photographs taken the same year show river journeys to small villages, as well as the officer's posh residence. Christmas 1931 was spent in Rangoon. In 1932 evidently officer George's influence, and perhaps also with his funds, an outdoor spectator's club house was built. Sojourns of the country included Sandoway (Thwande), Andrews Bay (near Kathit Island and Headlam Point), and in December, together with his wife, a riverboat cruise to Paletwa (Palangvum) on a steam vessel called the Hector. Views of Paletwa show but a few cottage style dwellings dispersed in a valley. An "Inspector General Parade" held January 1933 shows the Burma Military Police standing in formation for inspection, officer George and Captain Lyle on horseback, and being saluted by Police Chief Colonel Welbourne. Other events in 1933 include the Rangoon Horse Show, officer George being a prize winner in the jumping competition, an event at Kokine swimming club, and a polo match. In one of the polo tournament photographs George poses with team mates, one of whom is Brigadier John Francis Bowerman, and their opponents, which include a Captain de Salis and Geoffrey Bostock who was at the time the manager of Bombay Burma Trading Corporation and later an Air Evacuation Officer at Schwebo during WWII. Officer George and his team evidently won the Lim Chin Tsong Polo Cup in Rangoon in 1933. [The Lim Chin Tsong Polo Cup Tournament in Rangoon was started in 1917] The Burma Military Police (B.M.P.) was created from units of the Indian Army after the suppression of the disorders following the 1852 annexation of the country by the British. The force was expanded in the same manner after the 1885 annexation of Upper Burma following the Third Anglo-Burmese War. European Officers were seconded from the Indian Army (and sometimes from the British Army) and Indian Officers and men were recruited from the Punjab and Nepal. Its purpose of the force was the maintenance of internal security. Whilst maintaining peace among the quarrelsome hill tribes, the officers gained excellent experience in military operations in Burma's jungle-covered mountainous frontier lands. A special manual published by the Burma Military Police in 1902 became the primary and authoritative source for jungle warfare training. The manual was revised in 1928. It was strictly officers and men of the Burma Military Police who were trained in jungle warfare in Burma in the 1920s and 1930s, and they were regularly tested on infantry tactics in the jungle, and inspected annually. As such, officer George would have been one of the select officers specially trained in jungle warfare. The frontier battalions of the Burma Military Police were reorganized into a special army, in April 1937, becoming the Burma Frontier Force. In 1932, at the time of these photographs, the strength of the Burma Military Police was distributed as follows: Rangoon (2 battalions); Mandalay (1 battalion); Chin Hills (1 battalion); Lashio (Northern Shan States Battalion); Taunggyi (Southern Shan States Battalion); Bhamo (1 battalion); Myitkyina (1 battalion); and Pyawbwe (reserve battalion). In 1930, the Burma Military Police began training wireless operators for the Army. By 1934 a comprehensive wireless network was established throughout the country. Following a visit to Cornwall, England, in August 1934, illustrated in 14 photographs, it seems that officer George and his wife have returned to the Indian subcontinent and settled in Poona (Pune), From 1935 to 1936, the couple visited some of the country's most notable cities and monuments, the present album containing 36 photographs. Photographs from India capture tranquil views of Karwar, Karnataka, and the nearby beach of Belekeri, and an early visit to the Bhatghar Dam (Lloyd Dam) which was constructed only eight years prior in 1927, and the headquarters of the Indian Armed Forces, in the Secretariat building which was built in New Delhi from 1912-1927. As far as antiquity is concerned we find photographs of the tomb of Jahangir at Shahdara Bagh on the outskirts of Lahore, a single photograph of the small Sas-bahu Temple at Gwalior Fort, and the ornamental Anup Talao pool and central platform, built for Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great, in Fatehpur Sikri in the late sixteenth century, surrounded by important royal buildings including Akbar's residence, and partly restored under Lord Cruzon (1859-1925). In Delhi, the couple also photographed the Qutub Minar iron pillar situated in the Qutb complex and famous for its testament to skillful ironwork of ancient times. They paid a visit to Fort Delhi, including here views of the hammam (emperor's bath house). And, at Agra in February 1936, they preserved photographs of the tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah and its exquisite minarets, the Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) at Agra Fort, and of course the Taj Mahal. Brigadier John Francis Bowerman (1857-1934), C.B.E., K.P.M., served in the British Army from 1914 until 1918, transferring to the British Indian Army in 1918 and serving until 1946. He is most notable for his service with the Burma Military Police, which coincided with the expansion of the Myitkyina Battalion of the B.M.P. (by far the largest unit in the force) into two separate units, the Eastern and Western Myitkyina Battalions. He served on the Northwest Frontier of India, 1930-31, and was seconded to Burma from 26th January 1931, Burma Military Police, being appointed Assistant Commandant. He fought in the Saya San Rebellion, Burma, 1930-32, and became Commandant of the Myitkyina Battalion, Burma Frontier Force, in 1937. He was Inspector General of Burma Frontier Force, in 1938 until his 9 month leave. Upon his return, from 1938-1942 he was Commandant of the Southern Shan States Battalion, Burma Frontier Force. He became Liaison Officer to Chinese Army in the Southern Shan States, April 1942, and assumed command of the Burma Frontier Force in Myitkyina on 4 May. On 1st October 1942, he was assigned as Brigadier-General, C.O. 2nd Burma Brigade in India, following which he was made Commander of British troops at Fort Herz in North Burma. After spending several years in Burma, Bowerman left this post to become the British liaison officer to the Chinese 6th Army. He was granted the award of CBE in 1946. Geoffrey Bostock (1894-1979) was a British Army officer and important man of business in Burma. From 1919 to 1940 he was engaged in teak extraction from the jungles of Burma, as manager and senior up-country representative of the Bombay Burma Trading Corporation (BBTC), its headquarters being in Rangoon. He was also a forest inspector. Previously, during the Great War, he served with the Royal Army in the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, and the Western Frontier Force. He is mentioned in despatches 3/4/1918 and 16/3/1919 and was awarded OBE for military services, and promoted to Major. During the Second World War he served with RAF in both India and Burma as Squadron Leader. At Schwebo he was Air Evacuation Officer. Lim Chin Tsong (1867-1923) was a Chinese tycoon who successfully built a business empire on rubber cultivation, textiles and the oil, rice trading, mining and banking sectors. He made significant contributions to colonial Myanmar. He was the son of a Chinese Hokkien migrant from Fujian province in China. His father, Lim Soo Hean, came to Yangon in 1861 and began trading rice and selling agricultural products. In 1919, Lim Chin Tsong was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his fundraising efforts during World War I. He was also a prominent member of the Rangoon Turf Club, becoming owner around 1919. The Lim Chin Tsong Polo Cup endured long after his death. Whilst it is known that Rangoon Turf Club was in charge of racing at the Rangoon Club, limited detail is known about the Club or its history. . Very Good.

There were 59 people on the island, mostly eskimos who lived previously in other villages (on the mainland). Polar station was set up here. In 1928 The icebreaker Fyodor Litke (in honour of the Arctic explorer Fyodor Petrovich Litke) came to the island with an expedition. During the expedition ice was blocking the way to the island and the ship was often on shallow but the ship was able to come to the island from the north west. They were the first ever to do it. The discovered way from the north was very important for future expedition and navigation. Expedition and discoveries regarding the ship and island are described in this book. Two other books on this subject were published the same year (one of them by the same author), all were the first books on that expedition.

        Original drawing unsigned, " Embarrassing Moments" Daily Comic Strip" panel, dated 12-9 and docketed in pencil at top margin 1931. Also along top margin in pencil is the title, "'Embarrassing Moments' Geo Herriman."

      Printed "1931 King Features Syndicate" strip is laid onto artwork between drawing and caption, "Being a bit too proud to have had your tailor patch your trousers - you'd given the job to your dear wife - and so found out hat she was very color blind ." The art measures 7 x 7 inches on drawing board measuring 8.25 x 8.75 inches. Artwork is in fine condition, margins are soiled at edges. In 1910, Herriman launched "The Dingbat Family," later renamed "The Family Upstairs," for The New York Evening Journal, a Hearst paper. An interesting side note is that Herriman is credited with creating the word, "dingbat." The strip featured the adventures of an ordinary family dealing with their annoying upstairs neighbors. Herriman was the first to use the word "dingbat" to indicate a silly, empty-headed person. [see] Krazy Kat and Ignatz Mouse began as space fillers for The Family Upstairs then expanded into their own comic strip. King Feature Syndicate owned by William Randolph Hearst supported Herriman's art throughout his career. Herriman's comics did not enjoy a mass following, but they were popular among an artistic and intellectual set [].

      212 (1) Seiten (1 Blatt Verlagswerbung 8, gebundene Ausgabe, Original Ganz-Leineneinband mit Schutzumschlag, sauber und frisch, auf dem Vorsatz vom Autor signiert. Nicolas Thomas Bernhard (* 9. Februar 1931 in Heerlen/Niederlande - + 12. Februar 1989 in Gmunden/Österreich) war ein berühmter und umstrittener österreichischer Schriftsteller. 1970 erhielt Bernhard den Georg-Büchner-Preis seit den 1980er Jahren wird er international zu den bedeutendsten österreichischen und deutschsprachigen Autoren gerechnet. Rudolf, der Erzähler dieses 1982 erschienenen Buches, bereitet seit einem Jahrzehnt mit leidenschaftlichem Ernst eine größere wissenschaftliche Arbeit über seinen Lieblingskomponisten Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy vor. Nachdem er zuerst durch den Besuch seiner Schwester und dann, nach ihrem Weggang, durch die quälende Furcht, sie könnte wieder zurückkommen, am Schreiben des ersten Satzes seiner Studie gehindert wird, quält ihn die Hölle des Alleinseins. Deshalb packt er die Koffer, nimmt nur die wichtigsten seiner Schriftstücke mit, um in Palma seine Arbeit zu realisieren. In einem dortigen Cafe erinnert er sich an eine junge Frau, die ihn bei seinem letzten Palma-Aufenthalt vor eineinhalb Jahren angesprochen hatte. Sie war verzweifelt, ihr Mann hatte sich nachts vom Balkon des Hotels Paris gestürzt. Auf dem Friedhof von Palma, in einem der sieben Stock hohen Betonbestattungskästen, ist er beerdigt worden. Noch jetzt, eineinhalb Jahre danach, sieht er das verzweifelte Gesicht der Frau. Nun hat er eine Reihe von ersten Sätzen für seine Arbeit im Ohr, aber auch das Unglück der jungen Frau. Er nimmt ein Taxi, fährt zum Friedhof und findet an der Tafel neben dem Namen des Mannes nun auch den Namen der Frau: suicido erfährt er. Wir wünschen einen entspannten Rutsch ins Jahr 2017 bei wunderbaren Büchern und entspannender Lektüre!
