Once the 462nd was moved to the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theater, they not only flew over the Hump to China with supplies and soon began attacks on railroad shops in Thailand and beginning in June 1944 took part in the first AAF strike on the Japanese home islands since the Doolittle Raid. Their daylight attack on the iron and steel works at Yawata, Japan in Aug 1944 was among the most spectacular. Then, came the bombing of the industrial areas in Tokyo and Yokohama in May 1945. Finally the massive attack on the aircraft plat at Takarazuka on July 24, 1945. Two weeks later the Atomic Bomb led Japan to surrender.

      Princeton: Princeton University Press; London: Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1944. Princeton: Princeton University Press; London: Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press,, 1944. A Fragment of Life. Translated by David F. Swenson and Lillian Marvin Swenson. 2 volumes, octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spines gilt. With the dust jackets. A few tiny white specks to boards. An excellent set in lightly tanned jackets with very minor chipping and one small faint green mark to rear panel of Vol. II. A particularly fresh set in excellent condition. First edition in English, first impression. Søren Kierkegaard wrote Either/Or in his late twenties, "under a variety of pseudonyms (all recognizable), the chief advantage of this method seems to have been to give Kierkegaard the opportunity of letting different sides of his mind converse as individuals with each other, in a semi-Socratic fashion. Without disclosing his real beliefs, he confronted his readers with a choice of different possibilities [...]. Choice, as the title of his work suggests, was at the root of Kierkegaard's theory. There can be no system of existence, only a system of ideas. From this he develops his theory of 'Existence' (since taken up by the modern Existentialists), in which human beings considered as subjects not objects are the only real existence: their reflective as opposed to active nature being focused on the 'acts' of making perpetual decisions" (PMM). Originally published in Denmark in 1843, a centenary before its first English translation, under the title Enten-Eller. With the original publisher's invoice laid in.

Forty-six issues (including several double numbers, as noted). Printed wrappers. Some shallow chipping to a few overlap edges early on, II:2 has a piece chipped away around toe of spine, some occasional soiling to a few wrappers, but generally a very good lot, and often better. Edited by Warren Carrier (volume I) and T. and Renée Weiss, and others. A good, long only slightly broken run of this important quarterly, devoted to "stimulation and innovation rather than on consolidation, evaluation, and scholarly taste- making" - T. Weiss in 1974. Notable for the special issues devoted to single authors, including M. Moore, Kafka, Montale, Hölderlin, et al, as well as for printing longer works, complete, than are normally fare for periodicals. ANDERSON & KINZIE, pp.730-1. HOFFMAN, et al, p. 366.

Third edition of this wartime map of the Bushehr area on the southwestern coast of Persia, on the Arabian Gulf.

Interestingly, the present map was copied by the German Luftwaffe as early as 1942 and distributed as "Weltkarte 1:1.000.000 (Iran) / H-39/G-39, Bushire. Hergestellt im Auftrage des Generalstabs des Heeres, Abt. für Kriegskarten und Vermessungswesen (II)". - Somewhat dusty and showing slight edge wear.

        The Road to Serfdom

      Chicago: University of Chicago, 1944.. Chicago: University of Chicago, 1944. First edition, sixth printing published a few months after the first. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly inscribed by the author, "To Max Palin, Jr. from F.A. Hayek" on the front free endpaper. In near fine condition, the front flap of the dust jacket has been glued to the inner gutter. Hayek has written one of the most important books of our generation. It restates for our time the issue between liberty and authority with the power and rigor of reasoning that John Stuart Mill stated …in his great essay, 'On Liberty'" (Hazlitt, 82). [I]n my opinion it is a grand book. . . . Morally and philosophically I find myself in agreement with virtually the whole of it: and not only in agreement with it, but in deeply moved agreement" (John Maynard Keynes). The Road To Serfdom placed fourth on the list of the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century by National Review magazine.
