        Collection of Photographs]: India 1944

      India 1944 - Loose photographs and ephemera housed in a wooden box measuring 11" x 9" x 5" with "India 1944" etched into the lid. A collection of 319 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.5" x 1.75" and 4.5" x 4" with some captions on the verso, and with an additional 24 commercial cards measuring 3.5" x 2.75", one typed letter, and four English-language pamphlets from India published during World War II, as well as Japanese yen. All photographs are very good or better with curling at the edges and occasional spotting. An archive of photographs and papers from an American Airman ("Andrew") stationed as a labor supervisor in India in 1944 during World War II in the India Burma Theater. The photos are a combination of military personnel and barracks, with some stamped "Official Photo - USAAF [U.S. Army Air Forces]," as well as life in India during the war. One photo of a group of children has a caption that reads, "the big stomach on this kid is caused by starvation. They can be seen by the millions." One uncaptioned photo shows two Indian soldiers standing with a dead body between them covered in a Union Jack flag. Many of the pictures were sent home to his wife "Anna" in Connecticut with captions directed towards her such as, "This doesn't look like a stump of a tree but it is just that. I'm thinking of you in this picture." There are numerous pictures of Indian landmarks such as the Taj Mahal as well as photos of fisherman on the Ganges in Calcutta, hot springs, and one entitled an "action picture of softball game in organized softball league." The 24 commercially produced cards have images of India printed with captions as well as a stapled leaflet *A Pocket Guide to India* and *India Through the Camera's Eye*. Included among the total of 319 vernacular photos are 78 pictures of his young daughter and their friends back home that his wife sent to him to boost his morale and let him know the goings on on the home front. An interesting insight into Americans serving in India during the War.

        RANGER MOSBY [WITH A LETTER AND ENVELOPE, EACH BEARING JOHN MOSBY'S SIGNATURE]

      Chapel Hill, North Carolina: University of North Carolina Press, 1944. Second Printing. Hardcover. Very Good. Brown cloth, octavo. Text clean, cover is very good, very marginal nudging to corners. Stated second printing. 347 pages. Notes, appendix. Frontis plate of Mosby. 17 pages of illustrations, endpaper maps. A handwritten letter, signed by Mosby, dated Washington, December 1914, tipped-in to half-title recto. Also tipped-in, on verso of publisher's frontis portrait of Mosby, a photo plate of Mosby in uniform sitting in a wooden chair, and signed "Very Truly Yours, John Mosby. (Because the only other copy of this particular photo located bore a printed title of "Mosby in 1866", the signature is being treated as autopen. Since the photo is pasted, without printed title, to the extant page, this description will not treat it as authentic. The partial envelope which is addressed by Mosby, with return address in top left corner reading "From John Mosby, Washington", and addressed by him to Mrs. Wilma Lee Read...Morristown East Tenessee, postmarked Dec. 18, 1914. Washington D.C. is pasted down on the recto of the tile page. A bookplate on the copyright page states "From the Books of Wilma Lee Carter , whom we might assume was the daughter of Mrs. Read. The letter, in ink, begins with he salutation "My dear Cousin" and is in reference to a letter Mrs. Read sent Mosby inquiring about a common relative, to which he replies that he doesn't have any information and doesn't know about the relative she has inquired about, then then refers her to a certain book (VIRGINIA COUSINS by Goode) for possible answers, and then mentions that he has corresponded with a man in Missouri(?) named John Speed Mosby. The letter is eleven lines and signed "Very Truly, John Mosby" A commonly-found, but well researched account of "The Gray Ghost", with fabulous Mosby material tipped-in! John Singleton Mosby was a legendary battalion commander from Virginia who in contradistinction to a traditional military commander, seemed more guerilla/ninja than traditional soldier. He was renowned for his ability to effect daring, inconceivably dangerous strikes into Union-held camps with lightning speed, and then disappear. Mosby was acting under authority of General Robert E. Lee who in 1863 had granted him permission to set up the company (under the Partisan Ranger Act of 1862). By 1864, Mosby's Rangers (also Mosby's Men, or Mosby's Command) had expanded to around 400 men, consisting of six cavalry companies and one artillery company. Their ability to annoy and distract, and to repeatedly cause signficant expense to the Union side, who committed vast resources in an attempt to outwit Mosby's Men, made them a force to be reckoned with. On another occasion at the Union-held Fairfax County Courthouse, Mosby captured Brigadier General Edwin H. Stoughton. Having found Stoughton asleep in bed, he awakened the General with a slap to the rear, and asked 'Do you know Mosby, General?' The General replied 'Yes! Have you got the rascal?' 'No," said Mosby. "He's got you!'". (Wikipedia) One of their most celebrated raids was the derailing of a train and taking a $170,000 payroll from the paymasters of Sheridan's army. Each of the 80 raiders received $2100 share, though Mosby himself took nothing....(Munson, REMINISCENCES OF A MOSBY GUERRILLA) ...Mosby's correct estimate of men, his absolute freedom from jealousy and selfishness, his unerring judgment at critical moments, his devotion to his men, his eternal vigilance, his unobtrusive bravery and his exalted sense of personal honor, all combined to create in the mind and hearts of those who served him a sort of hero worship. Long before I ever set eyes on him I looked forward to the day when I would be able to take my hat off in his presence, and offer to follow him. As a Command we had no knowledge of the first principles of cavalry drill, and could not have formed in a straight line had there ever been any need for our doing so. We did not know the bugle-calls, and very rarely had roll-call. Our dress was not uniform in make or color; we did not address our officers, except Mosby, by their titles; in fact, we did not practice anything usually required of a soldier; and yet withal there was not another body of men in the army under better or more willing control of their leader. Two things were impressed upon us well, however; to obey orders, and to fight..." (Munson).

        Framed Typed Letter Signed about conducting

      Beverly Hills, CA, 1944. unbound. 1 page, 7.75 x 5.25 inches, Beverly Hills, California, July 3, 1944 -- thanking the recipient for sending a newspaper article, in part: "Thank you for the clipping from the New York Times. I imagine there will be several repercussions of this nature because the people of the United States like fair play. Many people know that the players of the NBC Orchestra are obliged to play with many conductors and on all kinds of commercial programs. So the idea of two styles conflicting seems ridiculous when there are more than a dozen conductors under which these artists play..." Two horizontal folds but still in fine condition. Double-matted in black and white beside a 7.75 x 5-inch photo of Stokowski conducting; set in a decorative black frame measuring 16.5 x 20.5 inches. British conductor of Polish and Irish descent.

        Four Quartets

      London: Faber and Faber,, 1944. Single square octavo sized 44pp. quire stapled at the spine. Original blue wrappers, titles to front wrapper in brown. Ink ownership inscription of "M. D. Connor" to half-title. Slight rusting at the staples, wrappers lightly creased and marked, light spotting within, vertical crease throughout from the book having been once folded, very good condition. An unusual and intriguing iteration of Eliot's Four Quartets. Certainly contemporary, and most likely unique, this curious printing takes the text and imprint of the first UK edition, published by Faber in 1944. Its exact status has outfoxed even Eliot's bibliographers, but the use of only capital letters has led to the suggestion that this may have been a private experiment produced through the use of telegraph or a military system of some kind. The four poems which make up Eliot's Quartets, "Burnt Norton", "East Coker", "The Dry Salvages" and "Little Gidding", were published separately between 1940 and 1941, and the first collected edition was published in the US in 1943. This Faber edition was the first UK edition of the Four Quartets under this title.

        Advertising Mock-up for Bourjois New York Cosmetics

      1944 - A collection of mock-ups and one photographic proof for several Bourjois New York advertising campaigns with several based on photographs by legendary fashion photographer Erwin Blumenfeld. They measure 9.5" x 12.5" and 11" x 14" with three on artists boards and two on art paper. Each mock-up has tipped-on photos or drawings of perfume bottles and one with a photograph of a glamorous model. The lone proof consists of a photographic reproduction of a completed ad with a shot of Blumenfeld photographing a model with the finished shot featured below. All in remarkably fine condition with only one tipped-on element lacking.Blumenfeld was the highest paid photographer in the world and the cover artist for *American Vogue* during the 1940s and 1950s. His use of non-traditional coloring for this Bourjois advertising campaign was lauded in the October 1944 issue of *Popular Photography* which called his work a "symphony of color harmony." Two of the mock-ups here undoubtedly used his original photographs as the basis for their compositions, adding hand lettering and pasted on elements. A less avant-garde photograph, possibly also by Blumenfeld, is featured on a different mock-up and is artfully torn along the bottom edge. The final mock-up is an original drawing by an unknown artist that features a debonair gentlemen walking toward a beautiful seated women in a flowing dress with the same pasted on perfume bottles as the others ads. Also included are six proofs of Bourjois advertisements including one for a mock-up in this collection.A wonderful archive of 1940s advertising mock-ups based on work by a world premiere fashion photographer.

The building on the right belongs to the Louvre; it is known as Pavillon de Flore. The black smoke is coming from tanks and turrets. Note the book-sellers stands that are closed." The second image shows the same scene with increasing black smoke: "The fight is turning into a real battle as Leclerc's Shermans start firing their guns. One after the other the German Tigers are knocked out and set ablaze." The following image show the first Allied Troops entering the city. At 4:05 the caption notes: "The fight has been over for a few minutes.", and shows a Sherman tank and a Red Cross truck with a few citizens coming out. The next images shows the Rue de Castiglione with abandoned German vehicles and awash in citizens, Leclerc's Moroccan troops entering the city on a troop carrier, one of Leclerc's Shermans with a priest on a bicycle; a group of "300 German prisoners caught in the Tuileries.", crowds beginning to gather in La Place de la Concorde Suisse, and other scenes from the area.Housed in an envelope marked in pencil "au Major Dunbaugh, " which we have not been able to definitively identify. A wonderfully immediate document of the liberation of Paris.

        WW II UNDERGROUND PRINTING - POETRY & FINE ART: JAMA [THE PIT].

      4°, 26 pp. with printed title and 25 lithographed text pages with illustrations within text, bound in parachute linen with lithographed title (Very Good, slightly age toned, tiny tears in margins). - [Topusko, Croatia: Naprjed] Izdanje kluba kulturnih radnika Hrvatske [Publishing House of Cultural Workers of Croatia] [End of November] 1944. In 1942 he joined the Partisans and participated in battles through the difficult terrain of Bosnia. In the months of seeing cruel battles and slaughtering of civilians, he wrote his most famous poem Jama (The Pit). This epic poem was inspired by a genocide made by the Croatian Nationalistic Army, Ustashe, upon the Serbian people. In first person, with cruel, yet beautiful verses, he describes torture, and eventual death as a part of mass killings. In 1943, only 30 year old Kova?i? was killed in Case Black – a joint attack by the Axis, which aimed to destroy the main Yugoslav Partisan force in Bosnia, mostly known by its final phase final phase, the Battle of the Sutjeska. After the battle of Sutjeska, Kova?i? was hiding in a farmhouse, weakened by a lung illness, listening the Serbian Nationalist Army Chetniks killing wounded Partisans. Eventually he was also tracked down by Chetniks, slaughtered and buried in an unmarked grave. Kova?i?’s death was accepted by the Partisans with great sadness. The journalist and politician Moša Pijade (1890-1957) described his death: "Goran Kova?i? did not survive the horrendous fifth offensive. This young Croatian poet, who in "The Pit" formed the strongest poem of a protest against the Ustasha massacres against the Serbs, was killed by "Serbian vigilante" Chetnik degenerates, these Swabian and Ustasha allies. They cut the throat, which had so sincerely and strongly thundered from the Croatian fraternal soul against Ustasha crimes against Serbian youth. Never before a more honest and humane work of a poet was punished and never a forehead of a murderer was tainted by more disgraceful crime. Reading the Goran's "Jama", hearts of generations and generations of Serbian youth will tear over the crimes, which caused such a cry of a poet, but also over the crime, which slit the throat of this beautiful seagull. " The poem is considered one of the most beautiful war poems ever made and one of the greatest poems of Croatian literature. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        Photo Album]: Capture of Natzweiler-Struthof Concentration Camp and related Allied Occupation

      Natzweiler-Struthof Camp, Offenburg, and Heidelberg, Germany 1944 - Oblong octavo. Measuring approximately 11.75" x 8.25". String-tied red cloth over paper boards. Contains 96 gelatin silver photographs, several with detailed captions on the verso, mounted (and easily removable, with care) with clear corners onto gray cardstock leaves. Although some images are as late as 1948, most are from 1944-5. An additional 19 family photographs and two newspaper clippings are placed at the end of the volume indicate Scottish lineage, and include two large press photographs. War photographs measure approximately 2.75" x 2.5". Private and press photographs range in size from smallest 4.75" x 3.5" to largest 8.25" x 6.25". Wear to front boards, a few photographs creased, otherwise very good.Second World War album of snapshot photographs taken by an Allied soldier who participated in the capture of the German camp features striking views from the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp situated in the Vosges Mountains in Alsace in France. Natzweiler-Struthof was the only purpose-built concentration camp constructed by the Germans on French soil (although there were some temporary camps to accommodate battlefield prisoners). Originally conceived of as a labor camp manned by politically undesirable German citizens, it was expanded to include a crematory for the mass extermination of Jews, Gypsies, and captured resistance fighters. The writer Boris Pahor wrote his novel *Necropolis* based on his experiences there. The Germans had largely evacuated the camp by the time it was captured (over 2000 died when the remaining prisoners were marched to Dachau) although a small staff of SS soldiers remained.The soldier who took these photographs is not identified, however a newspaper clipping together with two press photographs made in Edinburgh suggest that the soldier was from Haddington, about 20 miles east of Edinburgh, Scotland. It seems he was posted in Germany during the period of Allied occupation, deduced by a photograph showing the Karlsruhe Bridge over the Rhine river, captioned with the date of 4 May 1948. A substantial number of photographs reveal peripheral evidence of the atrocities which took place at this particularly remote and notorious location, the captions adding details gleaned while bearing witness to the years and final breaths lost by so many.Although the photos are relatively small, among other things they illustrate are multiple urns on a shelf, captioned: "used to send ashes of political persons back to Germany - cost for earthenware urn 60 marks, metal urns 90 marks." A crematorium: "furnace used to burn bodies in gasoline, fire used to heat boiler for hot showers in next room." A surgical table upon which medical experiments and dissections were performed on "dead and live patients." A table of "human scalps - after the laundry treatment scalps were pulled off victims before body was burned." Prisoners (presumably German soldiers) tied to one another with ropes at the wrists and marching on a road, captioned noting the white stripes on their pant legs. Prisoners pulling a heavy cart uphill: "SS prisoners pulling cart up steep mountain road. SS prisoners are serving 20 years in camp. Nazis used to make Allied prisoners do the same thing." From the entrance of the camp: ".the clock in the watch tower is run by hand by an S.S. prisoner." Another of a long range view of the camp: ". scaffold is in front where Germans used to hang Allied prisoners found escaping. The drop is only 2 feet when the trap door is open - not enough to break a man's neck - the victim was suffocated to death while the other prisoners lined up to watch."*New York Times* reporter Milton Bracker toured the camp on December 5, 1944, about two weeks after the camp was liberated by the French. In his report he mentioned the dissection table and the small storage room of burial urns. Three days later the camp was inspected by American officers who also reported the disinfection unit, a large pile of human hair, a gas chamber, a [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photo Album]: British Navy Mobile Maintenance Unit India World War II

      India 1944 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 9" x 12". String-tied brown cloth over paper boards. Contains 167 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 6" x 8", with captions. Very good photo album with split board edges, wear and rubbing, with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a British soldier stationed with Number 12 RAF (Royal Air Force) Mobile Maintenance Unit in India in 1944. The album is extensively captioned with different sections marked by titles written in calligraphy. It begins in Nainital (written "Naini Tal") with photos of the lakes and mountain ranges of the region. One photo of local men reads, "Coolies carrying wood down the mountain side. These men, quite small in stature carry huge loads; supporting themselves with their sticks." Another photo of two uniformed British men being pulled in a cab by local boys reads, "Allen and Dearden in a gharry. No motorized transport is allowed in Naini Tal." A photo of the album's creator in full uniform is captioned, "uniform had to be worn after eight o'clock in the evening." The unit was moved to a more permanent location at the C.O.S.M.O. Barracks (Combined Operations Signal Maintenance Officers) in Bombay at Sassoon Dock. Here the photos show "the crew" in group photos as well as the "coolies" who were employed at the station. The camp is seen here through candids taken of his colleagues lounging in a hammock, posing outside their barracks, and working outside with the caption, "always disobeying to be done." The city of Bombay is captured and laid out on a page titled, "Bombay Scenes," and shows the Taj Mahal Hotel, the Gateway of India, and the University clock tower. A photo of the Bombay Town Hall declares it was used as a "really tip top canteen for Forces." Another photo shows the "Breach Candy" swimming pool which was a "favorite haunt of servicemen." A large 6" x 8.5" photo shows the men enjoying a Sunday morning "orchestral concert" at the Bombay Y.M.C.A. in 1944.The people of India are depicted throughout in photos of "quack medicine women," "a carpet maker" in the midst of his work, and "street barbers," among others. One group of photos shows the marriage of "Mr. and Mrs. K. Emery" among uniformed friends and colleagues followed by the celebration of Christmas in 1944. The group also spent time in Srinagar and Kashmir in 1945, the region shown here in photos of the rivers, houseboats, and temples of the area. A few photos show an Indian pipe band marching through the city with a caption that reads, "the Maharajah has his own Army with a very up to date barracks." One photo of four men raising glasses is captioned, "VJ day, 1945." After victory was announced the unit stayed in India for post-war work throughout the rest of the year. Since this led to more leisure time the photos emphasize sporting activities such as rugby, field hockey, and watching Indian wrestling. The final pages are taken from the ship home and show the Suez Canal and passing a "Yankee Trooper" ship.An extensive collection of photography from a British soldier at the end of the war featuring sightseeing, soldier's barracks, and the camaraderie that close quarters in a war brings out.

      Kirchstetten, 21. XII. 1944. - 3 SS. auf 3 Bll. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Freund (d. i. der spätere Verlagslektor Hans Rössner): "Die beiden neuen Bücher ['Dokumente des Herzens' und 'Gedichte'] sind längst abgesetzt, ich konnte mit einiger Sicherheit auf ihr Erscheinen vor Weihnachten rechnen. Leider schweigt sich der Verlag [d. i. Langen-Müller] über das Schicksal der Bücher [.] aus. Man gibt mir [.] großmütig 200 RM im Monat, meine gewöhnliche Honorarrate. Wie stellen sich die Herren das vor? Du hast mein Haus gesehn. Du kannst Dir denken, daß ein solcher Besitz mit einem Bettel von 200 RM nicht in Ordnung gehalten werden kann, abgesehen davon, daß wir ja auch zum Leben für uns und die Haustiere etwas brauchen. Der Verlag hat doch gewiß schön an mir verdient. Es wäre seine moralische Pflicht, mich in Zeiten der Not nicht im Stich zu lassen. Dementgegen stellt sich der Verlag auf einen stur merkantilen Standpunkt. Als ich von hier aus zum Schanzen bestimmt wurde (das ist mittlerweile durch die Einziehung in den Volkssturm illusorisch geworden) habe ich den Verlag um Geld gebeten [.] Darauf hat man mir großzügig - 500 RM, also das Monatssalär eines mittleren Beamten, geschickt. Da geh Du hin und wälze die Gedanken des Abendlandes! Im übrigen glaube ich fest an die echte Abendländische Mission Adolf Hitlers. Wenn jetzt amerikanische und russische Analphabeten vorgeben, das Abendland vor uns 'Barbaren' retten zu müssen, so ist das doch der blödeste propagandistische Schwindel, der je ausgeheckt wurde. Wo ist in der Gegenwart bei denen eine derart geschlossene geistige Gestalt wie die meine, die mit allem Mut zur Konsequenz (Adel und Untergang) das Abendländische zusammenfassend aufgezeigt und beschworen hat?! Ich spüre wie es bei mir wieder aufwärts geht. Nur jetzt nicht nachlassen! Die drüben haben sich die Kriegsweihnachten 44 jedenfalls anders vorgestellt! [.] Hier haben wir die Bestien jeden Tag. Erst vorgestern griffen sie ein Gut in unserer Nähe an, auch auf die Bahntrasse haben sie es jetzt sichtlich abgesehen [.] Heil Hitler [.]". - Bl. 1 rechts oben mit rotem Farbstift vom Adressaten ebenso markiert wie die Sätze "Im übrigen glaube ich fest an die echte Abendländische Mission Adolf Hitlers" (Bl. 2) und "Ich spüre wie es bei mir wieder aufwärts geht. Nur jetzt nicht nachlassen! Die drüben haben sich die Kriegsweihnachten 44 jedenfalls anders vorgestellt!" (Bl. 3) sowie die Grußzeile; Bll. 2 und 3 rechts oben korrekt vom Autor numeriert.

        Bell X-1A rocket-powered Aircraft Signed by Chuck Yeager and Arthur W. Murray.

      Printed illustration of the Bell X-1A rocket-powered aircraft. Signed in a contemporary hand by "Chuck Yeager Maj. USAF." Additionally Signed by "Arthur Murray Major USAF." Triple matted and framed. The entire piece measures 15 inches by 17.5 inches. A very nice piece of avionic history. The Bell X-1 was a rocket engine-powered aircraft, designated originally as the XS-1, and was a joint National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics-U.S. Army Air Forces-U.S. Air Force supersonic research project built by Bell Aircraft. Conceived during 1944 and designed and built in 1945, it achieved a speed of nearly 1,000 miles per hour (1,600 km/h; 870 kn) in 1948. A derivative of this same design, the Bell X-1A, having greater fuel capacity and hence longer rocket burning time, exceeded 1,600 miles per hour (2,600 km/h; 1,400 kn) in 1954.[1] The X-1, piloted by Chuck Yeager, was the first manned airplane to exceed the speed of sound in level flight and was the first of the X-planes, a series of American experimental rocket planes (and non-rocket planes) designated for testing of new technologies and often kept secret. Arthur W. Murray flew test flights on the Bell X-1 and the Bell X-5 aircraft.

        Fonarik.

      Moscow, Leningrad: Gos-Izd Detskoi Literatury, 1944 - SCARCE First Edition. Illustrated by K. Kuznetsov. 68pp. 12.5 x 18cm. Original colour illustrated papercovered boards, cloth spine. Colour illustrations. Light even toning to paper stock, light indiscriminate felt pen markings, very minor shallow creasing, minor nudging. Even rubbing to boards, light even soiling, nudging to corners, foot & cap of spine, rubbing pronounced to board extremities. With restricted allocations for any industry not directly related to the military, resources for children’s books were an extremely low priority during the Second World War. That a children’s book would be published in full colour is quite incredible. Having died in ‘43, Kuznetsov had at least one other book published in colour that year which indicates to some degree the respect held for him in spite of accusations leveled at him throughout his career of not sticking to Soviet realism. Also notable for the illustrations depicting the military forces at war. Copies recorded in the US at Oclc: 619611617 at Indiana Bloomington, Los Angeles Public Library.
