Light offsetting to front and rear pastedown sheets caused by bleeding of binder's glue, else a near fine in dust jacket with a faint vertical crease to the front cover and a miniscule chip to bottom edge of foot of spine. Gruber knows his pioneer history very well and uses this knowledge to bring us a fine mystery with the tragedy of the Donner Party as its basis. An old prospector turns up at book collector Simon Lash's office and claims to be Lansford Hastings, author of THE EMIGRANT'S ROUTE TO OREGON AND CALIFORNIA, and wants Lash to find the owner of a redwood box carved in an intricate design of buffaloes. Simon knows that Hastings was considered partly responsible for the Donner Party tragedy and also that he had died some seventy years previously. Lash isn't much impressed with Hastings until he learns that the buffalo box was carved by Isaac Eckert, a very wealthy member of the Donner Party who died in the snowbound pass. Later that same day an attractive female, who claims to be Eckert's descendant, tries to sell a copy of THE EMIGRANT'S ROUTE in a secondhand bookstore, Lash becomes more interested in spite of himself. A well-preserved World War II book complete with Gruber's patriotic war message on back panel of the dust jacket.

        Deutscher Faustkampf nicht pricefight. Boxen als Rasseproblem. Mit einem Vorwort von Max Schmeling

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP., Franz Eher Nachfolger, 1942. Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Broschur / Kartoneinband im Format 12,3 x 19 cm) mit Deckeltitel, 102 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. - Aus dem Vorwort von Max Schmeling: \"Kein Geringerer als unser Führer Adolf Hitler hat den charakterbildenden Wert des Boxsportes erkannt und sich deshalb dafür eingesetzt, daß die heranwachsende deutsche Jugend im Faustkampf ihrem Mut erprobt und stärkt...\" - Mit einem geschichtlichen Rückblick: \"Der öffentliche Zweikampf mit den Fäusten vor einer Zuschauermenge war im Vorkriegsdeutschland bekanntlich verboten. Als dann die feige Novemberrevolte dem ruhmreichen Frontheer die unbefleckte Klinge aus der Hand schlug und die Truppen unbesiegt aus dem Felde zurückkehrten, da brachten zivilgefangene deutsche Matrosen, unter ihnen Hans Breitensträter, gewisse Boxkenntnisse in die Heimat mit, die sie sich in einem englischen Internierungslager angeeignet hatten. Die damalige Regierung hob das Boxverbot auf. Man hätte nun annehmen sollen, daß diese Leibesübung, die den kämpferischen männlichen Tugenden unseres Volkes voll und ganz zu entsprechen schien, breiteste Schichten ohne Unterschied des Standes und der Person im Sturmlauf gewinnen werde. Leider kam alles wieder einmal anders. Die Novembermänner, die es fertig gebracht hatten, im Jahre 1918 unsere alte stolze Armee, jene anerkannt beste Schule der Jugendertüchtigung, zu zerschlagen, diese verj... Schädlinge und Kreaturen wollten ja gar nicht den Boxsport zum Volkgut werden lassen! Sie, die selber keine Ehre besaßen, hatten niemals ein Interesse daran, im Volke Ehrgefühl und Heroismus zu fördern, denn dann hätten sie ja die längste Zeit in ihren bequemen Sesseln gesessen. Das Boxen war ihnen daher lediglich Mittel zum Zweck. Es wurde vom rein geschäftlichen Standpunkt aus betrachtet und diente vielfach dazu, die Sensationsgelüste einer blutwitternden Menge aufzupeitschen, wie das zu Zeiten des Niedergangs schon häufig in der Geschichte war. Ich denke dabei nur an die Eisenfaustschläger der Griechen oder an die Gladiatoren während des Sittenverfalls im alten Rom, die sich zur Wollust entarteter Herrscher und im Beisein eines entmenschten Pöbels auf Leben und Tod bekämpfen mussten. Spricht es nicht Bände für die ungeheuerliche sportliche Verantwortungslosigkeit der Nachkriegszeit, daß man die Polsterung der Handschuhe für Berufskämpfer bis auf das bedenklich dünne Polsterungsgewicht von 4 Unzen herabsetzte, während nach den internationalen Bestimmungen allgemein 5 Unzen als Norm galten.?Adolf Hitler hat es fertiggebracht, was die anderen jemals weder gewollt noch konnten: er hat das Boxen weltanschaulich und gedanklich im Volke verankert. Die von ihm eingesetzte Reichssportführung begann mit eisernem Besen auszufegen, um dann desto gründlicher wieder aufzubauen. Sie beseitigte den ewigen Zwiespalt zwischen Amateuren und professionals und schuf somit endlich eine einige deutsche Boxbewegung. Diese Bewegung nahm bald gigantische Ausmaße an...\"- Erstausgabe in guter Erhaltung - Sport im Nationalsozialismus, Preisboxer, arteigener Faustkampf, Schlüssel zum Faustkampf Boxen unabhängig von fremd rassischen Schulen und auf der Wurzel arischer Geisteshaltung und Seelenstruktur, Sportskameraden, Vorherrschaft der amerikanischen Kampfesweise, englischer Stilboxer, Boxkämpfer unter Bejahung der deutschen Rasseeigenheiten, deutscher Boxstil, Boxschule, geschichtliche Entwicklung des Boxstils, Ernährung für Boxer, Bodenübungen, Muskeltoilette, Lockerungsübungen, Lauftraining, Schlagtechnik bei Geraden, Konter als wirkungsvolle Waffe, rechter und linker Haken, Aufwärtshaken öffentlicher Zweikampf mit den Fäusten, deutscher Boxsport, Boxsportliteratur, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut, Adolf Hitler als Sportsfreund, der Führer als Freund des Boxens bzw. des Boxsports Versand D: 5,90 EUR Sport im Nationalsozialismus, Preisboxer, arteigener Faustkampf, Schlüssel zum Faustkampf Boxen unabhängig von fremd rassischen Schulen und auf der Wurzel arischer Geisteshaltung und Seelenstruktur, Sportskameraden, Vorherrschaft der amerikanischen Kampfesweise, englischer Stilboxer, Boxkämpfer unter Bejahung der deutschen Rasseeigenheiten, deutscher Boxstil, Boxschule, geschichtliche Entwicklung des Boxstils, Ernährung für Boxer, Bodenübungen, Muskeltoilette, Lockerungsübungen, Lauftraining, Schlagtechnik bei Geraden, Konter als wirkungsvolle Waffe, rechter und linker Haken, Aufwärtshaken öffentlicher Zweikampf mit den Fäusten, deutscher Boxsport, Boxsportliteratur, völkisches/nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut, Adolf Hitler als Sportsfreund / Freund des Boxens

        An original painting by Mona Thrasher of Inuvik.

      This framed canvas measures about 34 inches in height, about 28 inches wide. It is a portrait of an aged Inuit woman wearing a parka. Condition is very good - there is one small perforation in the upper part of the canvas, but it is not near to and does not affect the image. Mona Thrasher was born in 1942 in a bush camp between Aklavik and present day Inuvik. At a young age, a hunting accident left her partially deaf and mute. Mona is a self taught artist, with no formal training . At the age of 18, she was approached by Father Adam to paint the Stations of the Cross in the Roman Catholic Church in Inuvik (the Igloo Church). Even though she had never done such a large project, Father Adam knew she was capable. It took Mona just three months to paint all 14 Stations, which still hang in the church today. Since then she has created many paintings, mainly using the colours Blue and White because she believes they best represent the traditional Inuit life - the sky, water, snow and ice. She hopes that through her art, people get a better understanding of the North and its people.

        BABY KILLERS.

      Moscow, Foreign Languages Pub. House, 1942. 1st edition. Original Paper Wrappers, 12mo, 22, [1] pages. Includes illustrations (including portraits) . 20 cm. Holocaust era Soviet publication in English which spares no detail in printing the grizzliest possible descriptions of German torture and dissection of Soviet children. Also includes less graphic text, such as: ?These German fascist cutthroats, Hitler?s protégés, aim to exterminate all children who are not of German or, as they say ?Aryan, ? race. For them it is immaterial?be the child Ukrainian, Jewish, Uzbek, Georgian, or Tatar. For them it is immaterial be the child Czechoslovakian or French, English or American?. Once they are non - Aryan, once they are not Fritzes?away with them! ? Interesting period example of the Soviet description of German psychology, much more unforgiving than that which one finds in Western publications from the same time. SUBJECT(S) : World War, 1939 - 1945 - - Atrocities - - Russia. World War, 1939 - 1945 - - Children. OCLC lists 7 copies worldwide, none in New York.

        Collection of WWII Correspondence: Letters to and from Six Servicemen from Illinois

      [Forrest, Illinois]: August 1942 - November 1946 (most 1944-1946) 156 letters and two envelope fragments. Near fine, with a few letters dampstained, usual soiling and offsetting to the envelopes, wear where opened, else very bright and clean. This collection of correspondence was carefully collected, arranged and preserved by Virginia Huber, a young secretary from Illinois. The letters sent from the soldiers are grouped according to the writer, arranged in reverse chronological order and held together with simple string bindings. The soldiers' letters are primarily written on blank leaves or military stationary, and are housed in the envelopes they were originaly mailed in. Virginia, apparently careful in the planning of her letters, preserved typed drafts of her letters and not the handwritten copies she sent to her enlisted correspondents. Nearly all of her letters are printed on thin carbon paper, although a few greeting card mock-ups are on cardstock. Virginia's letters to the men are also grouped by addressee, arranged in reverse chronological order, and housed in cardstock paper folders printed with each correspondents' name, hometown, and station location. Virginia Huber, who was active in her local church and community activities, wrote to several enlisted servicemen whom she knew from her hometown of Forrest, IL. Because they were united by geographical location rather than branch of service, the soldier letters included here represent a wide range of American military experiences during WWII. Virginia, whose beauty was noted by nearly all of her correspondents, was also a notably vivacious and spunky writer. Related People: Huber, Virginia - Secretary from Forrest, IL, and arranger of this collection Funk, Norman - Naval airman from Roanoke, IL, stationed in Jacksonville, FL Funk, Ray - Army serviceman from Gridley, IL, stationed in Camp Crowder, MO and Camp Polk, LA Hartman, Art - Army serviceman from Strawn, IL, stationed in Peoria, IL & Camp Lee, VA Johnson, Roy - Naval serviceman from IL Sauder, Howard - Army sergeant from Roanoke, IL, stationed in the Aleutian Islands Steffen, Albert - Naval serviceman from Elgin, IL, stationed in Okinawa, Japan I. Letters from Six Soldiers to Virginia 1. Howard Sauder (11 August 1942 - 30 December 1945) Twenty-eight hand written letters written to Virginia Huber. Howard was one of Virginia's longest-lasting correspondents. Stationed in the Aleutian Islands, Howard was often highly isolated and many of his letters to Virginia express the sense of disconnect that plagued him. Notably, because of the location of his station, he was privy to both American and Japanese radio broadcasts and remarked on the curiousness of thinking of the Allied troops as criminal. 2. Raymond Johnson (23 December 1943 - 22 February 1944) Two handwritten letters and one copied letter written to Virginia Huber. Although she kept no record of any correspondence to him, Virginia's friendship and Ray's association of her with his home, and indeed all that he had left behind, provided him a strong sense of comfort. As Ray wrote in his letter from February 22, 1944: "You never miss home till you a long long way from it." 3. Art Hartman (3 January 1944 - 20 November 1946) Twenty-two handwritten and typed letters written to Virginia Huber and one empty envelope addressed to Virginia. Art and Virginia's close friendship is evident in the familiarity of Art's letters; in addition to asking about her love life and telling her about his dates, Art includes several cutouts from military newspapers - often the joke sections. Notably, Art was stationed at the newly rebuilt Camp Lee, which is now better known as Fort Lee. 4. Albert Steffen (6 November 1944 - 29 July 1946) Fourteen handwritten letters addressed to Virginia Huber. Although he boasted of several excursions to the Japanese mainland, Albert primarily describes his adventures on Okinawa, which he calls "the rock," and the many servicemen he met who also hail from his hometown. In addition to his letters, Virginia preserved. Near Fine.

        GO DOWN, MOSES And Other Stories.

      Random House [1942], New York - 8vo. This copy is inscribed by Faulkner on the front free endpaper and signed by him on the title page as was his custom. "To A. I. Bezzerides. Many happy returns. Bill Faulkner. 9 Aug. 1945." Faulkner and Bezzerides met in Hollywood at about the time "Go Down, Moses" was published, though this Faulkner novel was not among those of his books to make it to the screen. The two were part of the Warner Bros. stable of screenwriters and collaborated on more than a few movie scripts, some of which were filmed, some not. Faulkner, who was struggling financially to get by, lived with Bezzerides and his family during this period and was driven to the studio during the week by the younger man. When Faulkner periodically became incapacitated by his alcoholic binges, Bezzerides saw to it that he received medical intervention. This copy may have been inscribed to his by-then good friend when Bezzerides visited Faulkner in Mississippi. All this is documented in Faulkner biographies. Bezzerides was himself a published author, two of whose novels were made into Warner Bros. film noirs -- "The Long Haul" and "Thieves Highway." Provenance: The A.I. Bezzerides estate. A very good copy in a somewhat worn dust jacket, whose use can be seen as endearing if not ennobling. An association copy of the first rank. Housed in a custom-made quarter morocco clamshell box.
