        [Photo Album]: Navy World War II

      South Pacific, Connecticut, and New Jersey. [circa 1937- early 1940s]. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". String-tied cream leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front cover. A collection of 136 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 5" x 7" affixed to stiff black paper with captions. Near very good, the album has a detached front board with very good or better photographs, some with tape repairs. A photo album kept by a Navy seaman while serving in the Pacific in World War II featuring portraits and photos of his comrades. The photos show men working on ships including a nice amateur photo of sailors staring into the sunset. Two photos show a Navy baseball game on the beach likely somewhere in the South Pacific. A few photographs from the attack on Pearl Harbor are included but they appear to be contemporary reprints. The second half of the album shows photos of the sailor back in the United States in 1945 visiting people in Danubury, Connecticut, many times while still posing in uniform, as well as a trip to the Atlantic City beach with his girlfriend as well as Lake Oberst in Glassboro, New Jersey. An interesting collection of a sailor's wartime memories including friend's portraits and his joyous return home. .

        The Commerce Clause Under Marshall, Taney and Waite, Inscribed by FF.

      1937. With a Warm Inscription by Frankfurter Frankfurter, Felix [1882-1965]. The Commerce Clause Under Marshall, Taney and Waite. Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 1937. 114 pp. Lightly shelfworn cloth in moderately worn and lightly edgeworn and moderately soiled dust jacket, faint dampstaining to rear panel. Warm author inscription, most likely to Robert H. Jackson, signed "Felix," interior otherwise clean. * First edition. The inscription reads: "Dear Bob/ This is not a Roland for an Oliver, but law, at least in my poor hands, is only on the river of philosophy./ But 'we live by symbols,' and this brings you my gay devotion & ardent hopes./ Yrs/ Felix/ 18 December 1936." "Bob" is probably Robert H. Jackson [1894-1954], one of Frankfurter's closest friends. In 1936 Jackson was the assistant attorney general heading the Tax Division of the Department of Justice. He was attorney general from 1937 to 1941 and an associate justice of the Supreme Court from 1941 to 1954.

        The Road To Oxiana.

Minor wear to extremeties, some fading to spine. Internally clean, including the photographs. Byron, who died young in the Second World War, was one of the Brideshead set immortalized by Evelyn Waugh, but he was also the foremost travel writer of his age.

Paul Fussell recently suggested that what Ulysses is to the novel and what The Waste Land is to poetry, Byron's book is to travel writing.

To Belgian author, filmmaker and documentarist Henri Storck, telling him about his imminent making of 'La Grande illusion' and expressing his wish to come and visit him in Brussels as well as to work with his Club du Cinéma (28. X. 1936). - "J'aurais dû commencer déjà depuis longtemps un film 'La Grande Illusion' et je ne le commence que lundi prochain. C'est vous dire que je ne serai libre ni le 10, ni le 22 Février. [ ] Remarquez que, en dehors du désir de collaborer à votre Club à l'occasion d'une séance, je grille d'envie d'aller à Bruxelles que je ne connais pas du tout. C'est assez ridicule quand on habite Paris., c'est-à-dire à 3 ou 4 heures de chemins de fer. [ ]" (20. I. 1937). - One letter with printed letterhead, the other with punched holes (not touching text). Accompanied by an ALS from Belgian screenwriter Charles Spaak to Renoir in which Spaak accuses the addressee of having cheated him out of the rights of "La Grande illusion", for which Spaak had been a coauthor: "Vieux traitre ! [ ] tu m'a volé les trois quarts de mes droits d'auteur. Elle fut belle, la séance où le père Rolmer a sorti les papiers et les a mis sous le nez de Devalde qui était de la couleur de ce papier. Et Rolmer se marrait derrière son bureau : - Renoir vous a roulé! Devalde ne disait rien, n'en croyant pas ses yeux. Mais ton papier dégueulasse était mal foutu. Tu leur donnais les droits de " la grande Illusion " pour dix ans [ ] Mais je n'avais vendu mes droits que pour sept ans Impossible de resortir le film ! Demande à Devalde si c'est vrai : on m'a proposé de me rembourser [ ] ce que tu m'avais volé ! On m'a proposé de me laisser tous les droits pendant trois ans. J'ai refusé ! J'ai voulu ignorer [ ] qu'on te donne soixante pour cent des droits [ ] puisque que tu avais mis le film en scène. [ ] Tu as touché le fric dont je te faisais cadeau et tu ne m'as pas écrit pour me remercier. Tu rentres à Paris, [ ] à cause de certaines explications qu'on pourrait te demander Tout se passe bien ! On a oublié les vieilles histoires et on fait semblant ! Et tout de suite, tu [ ] trahis un copain ! [ ]". - A certain Rolmer had financed "La Grande illusion". Jean Devalde (1888-1982) was a Belgian actor. - Mounted on paper.

        2 je 2-seitige, eigenhändige Briefe und ein eigenhändig gewidmetes Foto von [19]37,, beide Briefe im Format DIN A5, jeweils einfach gefaltet,

      1937 - der Original-Fotoabzug in Gestalt einer Postkarte datiert mit oct. (19)37 zeigt Valery schreibend an einem Tisch sitzend, Beide Briefe sind an den Journalisten und Verleger Hans Paeschke (1911 - 1991) gerichtet, wobei Paeschke im 1. Brief (mit eingeprägter Adresse "Paris, le 24 Oct. (19)37") unbenannt bleibt. Valery lernte Paeschke kennen, als dieser von 1932 - 1934 Sekretär der "Deutsch-franz. Gesellschaft" war. Valery bedankt sich im ersten Brief für ein Schreiben Paeschkes und nimmt Bezug auf ein Treffen der beiden und ein Gespräch, in dem man auch über die Entwicklungen in Deutschland sprach. Der 2. Brief ("Dimanche 20.12 (19)37") ist auf persönlichem Briefpapier (mit eingedruckter Provenience: "Centre Universitaire Méditerranéen" geschrieben. Die ursprünglich eingedruckte Adresse wurde handschriftlich gestrichen und durch eine geprägte neue Adresse ersetzt). Darin geht Valery (1871 - 1945) neben den üblichen Höflichkeitsfloskeln auf die außergewöhnlichen Umstände der Zeit ein und bezieht sich dabei vermutlich auf die politischen Umstände in Deutschland. Er erwähnt auch eine gerade angetretene Lehrtätigkeit. Tatsächlich wird Valery 1937 als Dozent für Poetik an das Collège de France berufen. Die Anstellung in diesem höchst angesehenen und traditionsreichen Institut, das den offiziellen Auftrag hat, "Das Wissen in seiner Entstehung zu lehren", versetzte den bereits etablierten Lyriker, Philosophen und Essayisten in eine wirtschaftlich endgültig sorgenfreie Position. Paeschke wird später von 1939 - 44 Chefredakteur der von Peter Suhrkamp herausgegebenen Zeitschrift "Die Neue Rundschau" werden. 1942 - 45 hatte er als Mitglied der deutschen Spionageabwehr auch Beziehungen zur Résistance, bevor er schließlich 1946 in Baden-Baden, dem Sitz der franz. Militärregierung, die Monatszeitschrift "Merkur, Deutsche Zeitschrift für europäisches Denken" gründet, deren Herausgeber er bis 1978 blieb. Valery wird sich in der Zeit der Besetzung Frankreichs durch deutsche und italienische Truppen weigern, mit den Besatzungsmächten zusammenzuarbeiten. Als er dann den Nachruf auf "Den Juden Henri Bergson" schreibt, kosteten ihn dieser Text und die Verweigerung seiner Kooperation die Position des Präsidenten der Académie Française.

Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit dem Publizisten Rudolf Goldschmit-Jentner (1890–1964): „Ihre ‚Welt schreibt an Goethe’, mir weitergereicht als Ihr Gruß, hat mich sehr gefreut und auch gleich als einen willigen Leser gefunden. Es ist belehrend, unterhaltend und berichtigend, weitend und aufschlußreich, was man durch die Briefe in solcher Auswahl erfährt. Goethe nicht ausstrahlend, sondern als Ziel von Wünschen, Gedanken, Verehrung und auch Bedenken, Vertraulichkeiten und argloser Freundschaft – das ist eine Blickrichtung der man bisher nicht gefolgt ist [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 30. August 1937). – „[.] So sage ich denn für meine Berufung in das Preisrichter Kollegium gerne zu und erwarte nähere Nachricht über die erste Sitzung [.]" (Br. v. 24. Juni 1929). – Rudolf G. Binding begann nach Reisen durch Italien und Griechenland Novellen und Gedichte zu veröffentlichen und wurde nach Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs Bürgermeister in Buchschlag bei Frankfurt. „In einem Offenen Brief (‚Antwort eines Deutschen an die Welt’, 1933) an Romain Rolland sowie in zahlreichen Reden und Essays bekannte sich Binding zum Nationalsozialismus; 1934 wurde er stellvertretender Präsident der Deutschen Akademie der Dichtung" (DBE). – Tls. auf Briefpapier mit gepr.

Dezember 1937), die gerade von einer Feier von Gerhart Hauptmanns Geburtstag zurückgekommen war, sowie eine ms. Postkarte, die vermutlich ebenfalls von Elisabeth Jungmann stammen dürfte (dat. 23.

        A relic of the 1937 Hindenburg disaster, collected by the chief boatswain in charge of the mooring lines at Lakehurst?who was also a survivor of the Shenandoah

      [May 6, 1937], [Lakehurst, NJ]. 12" x 4.5". "A 12"" x 4.5"" section of the aluminum-coated fabric skin recovered from the wreck of the Zeppelin airship Hindenburg after it crashed in Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6, 1937. Expected wear consistent with exposure to fire.The aluminum powder coating on the fabric has been suspected of having contributed to the Hindenburg's flammability; the solution included cellulose acetate butyrate, aluminum powder and iron oxide.The fragment was recovered by Frederick J. ""Bull"" Tobin (1892-1978), one of the chief boatswains managing the mooring lines at Lakehurst, New Jersey when the Hindenburg caught fire and crashed to the ground in flames. Tobin became famous for ordering the fleeing ground crew back to their posts in order to assist the survivors. Twelve years earlier, Tobin survived the crash of the airship U.S.S. Shenandoah in southeastern Ohio. He had been asleep near the tail of the airship at the time and managed to escape just as the rear section crashed to Earth (John Toland, The Great Dirigibles: Their Triumphs and Disasters, 1957, p. 140-141, 328)."

        Exceedingly Rare and Important Typed Letter Signed as "Eliahu Epstein

      Jerusalem, 1937. unbound. 1 page on "Palestine Review" letterhead, 10.25 x 8 inches, Jerusalem, May 3, 1937. Written to fellow Zionist Heinrich Margulies, Director of the Anglo-Palestine Bank, Tel Aviv, in part: "I am glad you are giving us your co-operation, for I am anxious to make our paper not only an interesting but also an authoritative journal. In regard to the subject we discussed in our editorial 'East of Suez', we did not lay down permanent principles but rather referred to passing winds. It is our purpose to keep our readers both here and abroad well abreast of movements affecting the welfare of this country and we believe that we should not conceal facts which may not be palatable.I think also that you will agree that British policy, not only in regard to Zionism, has not always been consistent but is liable to fluctuation. In regard to Alexandretta, our comment has been on the lines which you suggest. I shall certainly be glad to take advantage of your suggestion to meet and discuss this and similar matters in person. I wonder why you wrote your article in German, since your English letter shows that you have a command of this language too." Note: Alexandretta was an area traditionally considered part of Syria that came under Turkish control in 1938. Israeli archives offer interesting insight into Epstein / Eilat's conduct with the posting of the following: "Eliyahu Epstein visited Iraq in February, 1937, pretending to be a journalist. Epstein was concerned about the Pan-Arab and pro-German spirit among the youth." Another document states: "Eliahu Sassoon and Eliahu Epstein, two officials of the Jewish Agency's Political Department, paid an eight-day visit to Iraq. Epstein was in touch with British political circles." There is little doubt that Epstein / Eilat was more concerned with intelligence gathering rather than journalistic endeavors. Natural folds and light creasing; two holes punched in the left margin with tearing. Otherwise in very good condition. A champion of the Zionist cause who helped found the State of Israel. In 1934 he became the head of the Political Department of the Jewish Agency, which itself was the precursor to the Israeli Government that was created at the nation's independence in 1948. It was Eilat who sought and received President Truman's recognition of Israel's establishment as a state. He was also Israel's first Ambassador to the United States upon its founding.

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a fine British first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives are a good model for many of today's more polemic writers. And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This is as engaging a read today as it was in 1937. Here is a collector-grade copy, fine in a very good, unclipped first printing dust jacket. Collectors should note that the first printing dust jacket is unique, with changes to the front flap on the second and subsequent printings. The binding is beautifully square, clean, bright, and tight, with vivid gilt and sharp corners. We note only a touch of wrinkling at the spine heel. The contents are likewise notably bright and clean. We find no previous ownership marks. Differential toning of the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this copy has spent life jacketed. The blue-stained top edge is clean and retains uniform, unfaded color. A trace of spotting appears confined to the bottom edge of the text block and a single, tiny spot on the fore edge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original front flap price. The vivid orange color remains very good, just slightly darkened on the jacket spine. Losses are quite modest, confined to fractional loss at the corners and spine heel, a .5 x .5 triangular loss at the upper rear hinge, and just a little loss accompanied by some wrinkling associated with a one inch closed tear at the upper front hinge. A few other short closed tears at the extremities show no loss. There is vintage brown tape reinforcement on the backside of the jacket at the spine ends. A 2 x 1.5 inch semi-circular stain at the front panel fore edge is the only blemish of note. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
