        [Photo Album]: Female World War II Pilot Trainer

      Canada, 1941. Near Fine. Oblong folio. Measuring 11" x 15". Screw bound black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 451 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" to 8" x 10", with captions. Near fine album with some rubbing with near fine photographs.An album compiled in 1941-42 by Marion Angelina Gillies (1915--64), a pilot and one of only a few Canadian women certified as an aviation instructor. She worked for her father's private flying school, filling a void left by the experienced, mostly male, training pilots who were drawn into the task of preparing pilots for military duty. A newspaper clipping pasted at the rear of the album shows Marion with her father and another aviatrix who was also training to become a private aviation instructor.Gillies Flying School operated out of Barker Field at Portage La Prairie, Manitoba which was also selected as the location for the No. 7 Air Observers School. Recruits trained in the Avro Anson airplane for eight weeks and learned basic navigation techniques and also studied aerial photography. Based on the photos in the album, Marion clearly had unique access to the training facilities and a close relationship with many of the pilot training instructors, who likely formerly worked for her father. For example, included are several candid photos of Russell Leslie "Ginger" Coote (1898--1970), a legendary World War I fighter pilot and Bush pilot. The BCATP (The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan) was a massive, joint military air crew training program created by the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand during World War II. Canada was chosen as the primary location for the training schools because of its ideal weather and wide-open spaces suitable for flight and navigation training, as well as minimal threat from either the Luftwaffe or Japanese fighter aircraft. Schools and facilities were set up at 231 locations across Canada.The album is also filled with numerous photos of trainees. Among them is a group photo of the first class of observers at #7 A.O.S.: a caption pasted into the book names each of the graduates. Another group photo is captioned "New Zealand class at P.A." There are photographs of top-ranking officials visiting #2 A.O.S. in Edmonton in 1941, including a photograph of Prince George, Duke of Kent (1902--42) with other military leaders, as well as two photographs of Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon MacKenzie King (1874--1950) touring the installation. Another photo shows someone practicing jumping from a plane with a caption which reads "bail" underneath it. One photo of a plane with its front end nose to the ground reads, "one of the several reasons why you shouldn't over run your field and then slam on the brakes." There are also photos of fun and leisure time with a photo of Marion drinking from a flask and the men playing poker. She also kept photos of other aerial of locations around Canada.Throughout the album various planes are shown including Ryan S.T., Airspeed Oxford, Avro Anson, Republic p-43, Lockheed "Yippy" P-38, Boeing B-17, Spitfire, Curtiss Helldiver, E.F.T.S. Tiger Moth, Bristol Blemheim Mk. VI., Consolidated B-24, Brewster Buffalo, Curtiss P-40, Gee Bee A, Eaglerock A-2, General Aristocrat IIIc, Boeing 40b4, Flamingo G-2, American Eagle OX5, Bristol Monolane of 1918, Martin Bomber MB-I 1918, British R.E. 8, among many others. Some of the airplanes are photographed on the runway, but there are also numerous photographs of planes in flight as well as the interior with photos of pilots at the yoke. The album also includes photos of a variety of Naval ships, including the U.S.S. Raleigh, U.S.S. Barracuda (submarine), U.S.S. Enterprise, U.S.S. Preston, U.S.S. Idaho, U.S.S. Wyoming, and HMCS Kenora.There are a number of photos of a fire on May 21, 1941 at A.O.S. Portage La Prairie hanger number two. According to newspaper accounts, a trainee at the school was killed when he crashed his Tiger Moth training plane into the hangar, also destroying six Avro-Anson planes. A series of four photos of the fire carries the caption "four reasons why airplanes should not spin out of climbing turns." The album contains another dozen photos showing the burning hangars and attempts to save planes, along with the aftermath. One photo shows a close up of the remains of the airplane with the caption: "the root of all evil. The remains of the pilot and Moth."Marion included a wide variety of airplane crashes, some more serious than others. The caption under one reads, "Plop! And another Tiger Moth bit the dust!" Another is more gruesome, with two photos showing "remains of a Cessna and its crew after a wing blew off." Marion and Fred Gillies likely were pulled into military service when the Canadian government shut down civilian flying schools in 1942 as part of gas rationing efforts.While there is no definitive proof within the album that Gillies was training military pilots, all of the context seems to indicate that this was likely. An extensive and interesting collection of aviation photography from an early aviatrix during World War II.

        Hand signed autograph letter by Albert Einstein (HA auctions) -Make an Offer

      Guaranteed Authenticity by Heritage Auctions (HA sales)Einstein admires that his cousin, who has come to San Francisco from Nazi Germany via Russia, China, and Japan, is able to write down his experiences in English ("I certainly could not do that"), telling him he does not have to repay the money Einstein gave him for the trip.Albert Einstein Typed Letter Signed "Albert," one page, 8.5" x 11". Princeton, New Jersey, October 23, 1941. In German with full English translation, embossed at top center with his name and "112, Mercer Street" address. To an unidentified cousin. The name "Otto Nathan" and his New York City address has been penned in red at the lower left in an unknown hand. Nathan, Princeton economics professor, was the sole executor of Einstein's estate after the scientist's death in 1955 and was co-trustee of his literary property along with Einstein's secretary, Helen Dukas. In full "I am happy to learn from your letters that you are getting along fine and adjusting well to your new environment. I know that it is hard to find work at our age. I admire your ability to know the language so well that you can write down your experiences in English. I most certainly could not do that. Please do not give back the money that I have given you for the trip. It could not have been spent in a better way, and I am happy about that. Please do not mention it anymore and forget about it. Heartfelt greetings and wishes to all of you." Einstein's cousin had left Germany and came to San Francisco via Russia, China, and Japan. He later wrote a series of articles published in the San Francisco Chronicle, "Exodus from Mizrahim," about his experiences. In his letters to Einstein, he most probably told his cousin that he was writing about his trip in English. Four light stains and folds, none touching Einstein's signature. Einstein family letters signed "Albert" are virtually unobtainable.

        The War Speeches, a full set of seven British first editions - Into Battle, The Unrelenting Struggle, The End of the Beginning, Onwards to Victory, The Dawn of Liberation, Victory, and Secret Session Speeches

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1941. First edition. Hardcover. Here is an exceptional set of British first edition, first printings of Winston Churchill's seven war speeches volumes. This set features near fine or better volumes in near fine dust jackets. It has become quite difficult to assemble jacketed, first printing sets in such condition. Few books are as emblematic of Churchill's literary and leadership gifts as his war speeches volumes. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of note - Member of Parliament for more than half a century, soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner, painter. But Churchill's preeminence as a historical figure owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." When Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953, it was partly “…for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. The British first editions are visually striking, but were printed on cheap wartime paper, bound in coarse cloth, and wrapped in bright, fragile dust jackets. They proved highly susceptible to spotting, soiling, and fading, so the passage of time has been hard on most surviving first editions. This set is a noteworthy exception. The blue cloth bindings remain tight and clean with bright spine gilt and only trivial wear to extremities. The contents are unusually bright throughout the set. We find no previous ownership marks in any of the volumes. The spotting endemic to these first editions appears confined to the page edges of the first volume and the page edges and first and final leaves of the fourth and fifth volumes. The Unrelenting Struggle is also first state, denoted by irregular pagination at page 281. Victory is likewise first state, denoted by p.177 misprinted as “77”. The first and final volumes are of special note. Into Battle has the most vividly bright and complete dust jacket we have been able to offer in many years, with a beautifully bright book beneath suffering only a bit of page edge spotting. Secret Session Speeches is likewise a superlative copy, with beautifully fine book beneath a complete and unusually bright dust jacket. All seven first printing dust jackets retain unusually bright spines. All dust jackets except The Unrelenting Struggle retain the original publisher's prices on the lower front flaps. All seven dust jackets are complete apart from fractional chipping to a few extremities. Modest soiling, primarily to the white rear faces of the dust jackets, trivial wear to hinges and extremities, and a tiny, stray ink mark to the front face of Victory jacket do not compromise the exceptional shelf presentation and overall caliber of this set. All seven dust jackets are newly fitted with removable, archival quality clear covers.
