Arsacio (Kid) Vanegas Arroyo, 1922-2001
Mexico, 1945. Approximately 9 x 26 1/2", each poster printed in color on thin tissue paper. Two early Lucha Libre posters which includes matches by Kid Vanegas, aka Arsacio Vanegas. Vanegas was the wrestler who taught Che Guevara, Fidel Castro and the soldiers of the Granma Yacht expedition self-defense, and harbored several of the combatants in his home. The Vanegas Arroyo family was no stranger to the Cuban struggles. His grandfather, the printer Antonio Vanegas, was friends with José Martí and printed early texts of Cuban Independence, as well as works by Posada. Vanegas died in September of 2001. Fidel Castro wrote the following elegy for him in an open letter to his friends: "He conocido con profundo pesar la noticia del fallecimiento de Arsacio Vanegas, y deseo hacerles llegar mi más sincero sentimiento de condolencia. Vanegas fue un firme y leal colaborador del grupo de revolucionarios cubanos que en México nos dimos a la difícil tarea de preparar la etapa definitiva de la lucha por la libertad de nuestra patria. Los múltiples y muy valiosos servicios que, con el más absoluto desinterés y con plena identificación con la causa de la Revolución Cubana, prestó durante los largos meses de preparación de la expedición del Granma, lo hicieron acreedor de nuestra perenne gratitud y del reconocimiento de todo el pueblo cubano, que siempre lo consideró como uno de sus hijos y como otro de sus combatientes. Reciban ustedes el testimonio de mi más sentida pena y mi mayor aprecio." Both posters folded once, with additional creasing, but the fragile paper is still vivid.

Frontispiece and 25 colour plates plus 263 monochrome plates. Some wear and creasing to the jacket with a few small losses to the edges and some tissue repairs on the verso, generally very good. Wentworth's letter is addressed to a Mr. Rourk promising to send the stud catalogue under separate cover.

The two named horses are described and illustrated in the stud catalogue, the former described as a "Red Bay, one of the tallest pure Arabs on record" and the latter as a "Golden Chestnut. A perfect type with ideal head" with details of their respective sires and dams. She continues by saying she has written to a fellow horse breeder who might have something more suitable.

n/a
Centralna Zydowska Konisja Historyczna W Polsce, Lodz, 1945. Oblong quarto. [19], 104pp., [15]. Original paper wrappers. Considered as one of the single most important documentary photo books on the Holocaust ever published, this book became the defining collection of photographic images from the period. Illustrated with 252 b/w photographic reproductions documenting the debasement and destruction of European Jewry, with pictures of cities, ghettos and the camps. This multilingual photographic album was published in Poland a few months after the end of World War II when relatively little was known on the magnitude of the genocide perpetrated upon the European Jews. In addition to a short introduction, the 252 photographs contain shocking footage from the Jewish settlements at the onset of German occupation, the ghettos into which they were later crowded, and finally, photographs of the atrocities committed in the forced labor camps and the extermination camps. Another section of the book is dedicated to the Jewish partisan movements. The photographs were mostly taken as mementos by German soldiers, and are still as shocking today as they were in 1945. Text and captions in Polish, Russian, English, French, Yiddish and Hebrew. Wrappers are creased and cracked. Otherwise in good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Enola Gay's 12-person crew left their home base at Tinian, in the Northern Mariana Islands, at 2:45 am Tinian time on August 6, 1945. Their objective was to drop an atomic bomb, called Little Boy, on the city of Hiroshima, Japan, located some 2,500 km to the northwest. The reproduction navigation log documents Van Kirk's notes as they passed landmarks, such as Iwo Jima and Mishima, Japan. The plane gradually gained in altitude until it passed over its target of Hiroshima. At 9:15 Tinian time, at an altitude of 31,060 feet and an air speed of 200 mph, Van Kirk listed "Bomb Away" in the Position column.

Kastner, Rudolf
Office of the U.S. Special Counsel, (London), 1945. Small thin folio.13x8". 10pp. Original mimeographed and stapled pages. This important historical document is a direct translation from Rudolf Kastner's sworn affidavit, recorded September 13, 1945 in London, providing a detailed account of the events relating the Holocaust in Hungary, the deportation of Jews to Auschwitz, the effort to save them, and the roles of SS officers Kurt Becher and Adolf Eichmann. This statement was used as part of the Nuremberg Trials and related investigations into Nazi crimes. At the time Kastner was working as executive vice-president of the Aid and Rescue Committee (ARC). This Jewish organization helped Hungarian Jews escape the Holocaust during the German occupation of Hungary, in 1944-1945, and Kastner was its de-facto leader. It was during this period that Kastner made a financial bargain with the Nazi leadership (under Adolf Eichmann) in charge of the deportation and murder of the Hungarian Jewish community. In exchange gold, diamonds and cash the SS officials involved allowed a train of 1,670 Jews (June 30th 1944) to be re-routed to Switzerland, where they were protected and ultimately saved from being gassed at Auschwitz. This famously came to be known as the "Kastner Train". Included in the statement are some statistics related to the deportation of Hungarian Jews, and the final pages of this affidavit contain a detailed list of individuals and organizations related to the testimony, ranging from Nazis who perpetrated crimes to individuals responsible for saving and protecting Jews.

Honma, Lizo

Most photos measure from 2½" x 3" to 3" x 4½"; approximately 100 are captioned on rectos and an undetermined amount are captioned on versos (see note regarding captions below). Album good due to small areas of loss at the spine tips and 12 detached leaves; photos generally very good with scattered instances of light staining with around 20 loose under the mylar.This is a deep and comprehensive album created by a member of the 442nd Infantry Regiment's anti-tank company, Lizo Honma. Lizo was born in the Puna District of Hawaii National Park in 1921 and was living in Honolulu when he registered for service in February, 1942. The 442nd was a segregated unit of Japanese American soldiers, nearly all of whom were Nisei, and, according to several sources, it was the most decorated unit for its size in United States military history. Lizo received a number of commendations including a Purple Heart and he was awarded a Bronze Star for "heroic achievement in action 4 and 5 July, 1944 and 6 April 1945 in Italy." While approximately 20,000 Japanese Americans served in the army in World War II, the 442nd's anti-tank company had only around 300 men. Honma was a talented amateur photographer committed to documenting the history of his unit. This album is proof enough of that commitment, but a laid-in thank you letter from the Robert Kenner Films company in August, 2001 further cements his dedication to th … [Click Below for Full Description]

From "Walter
Manilla, Philippines: Santo Thomas Internment Camp: , 1945. File copy of a letter describing a woman's horrifying but tenacious effort to save herself and her children from massacre by Japanese soldiers as American forces liberated Manila during World War TwoThis onion-skin file copy of a letter measures 8.5" x 11". It was written by "Walter" (who identifies himself as an employee of Trans World Airlines) immediately after his liberation from the Saint Thomas Internment Camp run by the Japanese Army in Manila and reunification with his presumably Filipina or Chinese wife and their children, who had been forced to fend for themselves in Manila. In it, Walter describes their ordeal during the liberation of the city by American troops as the Japanese Army retreated.The letter reads in part: "I watched from my window the district where Hetty and the children lived . . . without being able to lift as much as a finger to aid them. The atrocities committed by the Japs in this struggle are beyond description as they were firing on or bayonetting any living being they encountered. All residential districts were systematically fired by the Japs and the occupants of houses, were machinegunned upon leaving their burning houses. "Hetty and the Girls had a most horrifying experience but were saved by the Grace of God and her tenacious will. . ..

[GUINEA PIG CLUB.] BIEL, Josef.
1945-1950. 'My beauty treatment' - poignant archive providing a glimpse into the mental and physical toll of pioneering reconstructive surgery after WWIIA fascinating, and often poignant, archive of letters penned over a five year period, between Josef 'Joe' Biel, and his friend Miss Betty Stanford, during which time Biel underwent a number of reconstructive surgical procedures under Sir Archibald McIndoe at the famous Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. In addition to giving occasional details of the procedures involved, the letters provide an invaluable and highly personal insight and account into the physical and mental effects this often long and painful restorative and recuperative process had upon Biel - no doubt a reflection of the experiences of the many others who similarly underwent, and ultimately benefited from, the pioneering work undertaken by McIndoe, all of whom became members of 'The Guinea Pig Club'. Established in 1941, membership of this social club and mutual support network for British and allied aircrew injured during World War II, was made up of patients of McIndoe, all of whom underwent experimental reconstructive plastic surgery, including facial reconstruction, often after receiving burns injuries in aircraft. What began with 39 patients grew to 649 by the end of the war and included Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders as well as Americans, French, Czechs and Poles. His pioneering plastic surgery techniques restored function and gave hope to these young man with life-changing disfigurements, and with his encouragement, rather than hiding … [Click Below for Full Description]

Labarthe, Andre, editor
New York: Labarthe Publishing,(1945). 4to (Large); 1st edition. Original color illustrated paper wrappers, 4to, 128 pages. This issue includes a very early postwar (July 1945) eleven-page photo section (pp. 24-34), sarcastically titled "The triumphs of the Master Race," showing 14 large photos of concentration camp victims, murdered POWs, and other atrocities revealed as the Allies took over Nazi territory. The photos are variously attributed to the US Signal Corps, Sovfoto, and British Combine. The US Holocuast Museum notes that the Signal Corps "played a crucial role in documenting evidence of Nazi atrocities and the Holocaust. Many of the early still and moving pictures of newly liberated Nazi concentration camps were taken by Army photographers such as Arnold E. Samuelson and J Malan Heslop. A number of these images were later transmitted to news agencies in America and other countries, where they helped to inform the world about the horrors of Nazism and the plight of concentration camp prisoners. The US Army and the Allied military governments of Germany eventually used these photographs to confront German prisoners of war in the United States and the German population with the evidence of Nazi crimes" (USHMM). Tricolor was the American edition of French resistance/literary/art magazine, published by Labarthe, a member of Free France, and best known for magazine La France Libre, which he founded in London in 1940 and led to the end of 1945. The American edition, Tricolor, was an ambitious literary and art magazine spanning April 1944 thru September 1945 (17 issues to … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORWELL, George
Secker & Warburg, 1945. First edition. Original green cloth with white lettering in printed green and grey dustwrapper. A fine copy, with a contemporary gift inscription to the front pastedown, in a fine dustwrapper, which is exceptionally clean and crisp with just the most trivial wear to the spine ends and a tiny abrasion at the head of the rear panel. An exceptional example of a notoriously fragile production. The author's brilliant short novel now regarded as a minor masterpiece of twentieth century literature. Although it took only three months to write, the gestation of a short fable to express Orwell's growing dissatisfaction with the USSR and Communism in general had been some six years in the making. Orwell flippantly dismissed the work prior to publication as "a little squib, which might amuse you when it comes out" (letter to Gleb Struve, Feb 1944), adding prophetically, "it is so not O.K. politically that I don't feel certain in advance that anyone will publish it." Within a month, Orwell's long term publisher and supporter, Victor Gollancz, had refused the manuscript out of hand, as had several other publishers. T.S.Eliot, though rejecting it on behalf of Faber, clearly admired the work, "a distinguished piece of writing. the narrative keeps one's interest on its own plane - and that is something very few authors have achieved since Gulliver." Frederick Warburg, shrewdly assessing that publishing a work of genius and the possibility of gaining Orwell as an author outweighed the political risk, agreed to publish it on the spot. Further difficulty was encountered … [Click Below for Full Description]

1945. [World War II][German/Jewish Refugees] Photo Album Given to Joseph Biermann of the High Commission of Germany (HICOG) After World War II. Berlin: 1945-1954. 7¼" x 5½". Half leather over boards. 27 thick card leaves interleaved with tissue, with 45 black and white photos inserted into corner mounts, most measuring about 4" x 3". Overall near fine with crisp photos. This album was given to Franz Joseph Biermann from a Mr. A. Hinz in what we surmise is a going away gift, based on a drawing at the end of the album showing the Biermanns with suitcases headed toward the Statue of Liberty and the caption "Auf Wiedersehen!" Biermann emigrated from Germany and enlisted in the United States Army in 1943, serving in the European theater. He worked for the High Commission of Germany (HICOG) and is depicted along with three other people in a well drawn comic with Biermann at his desk titled, "The 4 Chiefs of the Berlin Office (in our view)." A photo of him is captioned, "Chief No 4." In an article by Pamela Elbe, Collections, Archives, & Exhibitions Coordinator of the National Museum of American Jewish Military History, she writes about the details of Biermann fleeing Germany, and his involvement during World War II. One particularly compelling tidbit is the mention of Biermann as part of a combat intel/document team, and his role in collecting German scientific papers.
