        Photograph Album showing members of the African-American 8th Marine Ammunition Company

      Montford Point (Camp Lejeune, North Carolina) and The Pacific, 1945. Album. Very good. This 8.5" x 13" leather USMC Photo-Log contains 115 photographs showing members of the 8th Marine Ammunition Company. Some of the photos show the African-American boot camp at Montford Point), hand-to-hand combat training, bar girls at a cabaret, and Bowen's wife. Most pages contain Bowen's annotations, and many of Marines' photos are identified. 16 Marines signed the album's autograph log. Bowen's Neptunus Rex certificate for crossing the equator is present, and several newspaper clippings about his purple heart ceremony are glued to the last page. Photographs are in nice shape. The album is edge-worn and the leather binding thong has been replaced. Although the Army had a long tradition of illustrious, although segregated, African-American units, the Marine Corps adamantly refused to allow blacks to enlist, and at the onset of World War II, Commandant Thomas Holcomb declared that he would prefer to have a Corps of 5,000 white men than a force of "250,000 Negroes." After Holcomb was forced to accept blacks, they were trained at a segregated base in North Carolina, Montford Point, and organized into Defense Battalions. The overwhelming majority of these black Marines served in areas far behind the combat zone. One exception was the 8th Ammunition Company which was attached to the 5th Marine Division. When the division assaulted Iwo Jima, the 8th Ammunition Company shuttled ammunitions from ships to the beachhead under enemy fire. After the battle ended, the company established itself at the northern end of the beachhead along with Army Air Corps squadrons, and unarmed personnel awaiting evacuation. On 28 March 1945, ten days after the Marines had declared Iwo Jima officially secured, a heavily armed force of 300 Japanese staged a nighttime Banzai attack upon the basecamp. The attack was defeated, however one African-American Marine was killed and two were wounded in furious hand-to-hand fighting. Bowen was shot in the jaw. Truly rare. While any African-American World War Two photograph album is scarce; African-American Marine albums are seldom found, and other photograph albums by African-Americans wounded during the Battle of Iwo Jima are simply non-existent.

        TLS-typed Letter Signed "Last Minute Preparations"

      A Signed Statement on the Last Minute Preparations For the Enola Gay signed by Paul W. Tibbets Written shortly after the dropping of the Atomic Bomb about the Last Minute Preparations made on August 5, 1945. Typical of Tibbets typing were strikeovers and occasional misspellings. He notes that the clouds over Japan were breaking up, the lettering on the nose of the plain which the painter took less than half an hour to complete on the Enola Gay and the loading of the bomb. He gathered the so-called Tinian "joint chiefs" including himself, General Thomas F. Farrell, the Manhattan Project's key ranking officer, Admiral William R. Purnell, Navy Captain William S. "Deak" Parsons, who would be the chief weaponer on the flight: Commander Frederick L. Ashworth, another weaponer, Professor Norman F. Ramsey, who I first met in General [Uzal] Ent's office and Professor Robet Brode. General Farrell sent a message in code to General Groves who in turn passed the word of our scheduled 2:45 A.M. takeoff time to General Marshall. The tension in the Pentagon must have equaled that on Tinian. In the messages that flew back and forth across the Pacific during our period of preparation, there were code names for everything. I was "Yoke", Deak was "Judge", General Farrell was "scale", and General LeMay was "Cannon". The recent atomic test in New Mexico was called "Trinity", atom was "Top", atomic was "Topic" and uranium fission was "Urchin Fashion". At this morning's meetings, Captain Parsons startled us all by expressing concern over our plans to take off with a live atomic explosive in the bomb bay. In the few days since he had arrived on the island, he had witnessed a number of fiery crashes as overloaded B-29's failed to become airborne. Four crashes had occurred the night before with thunderous explosions of bombs, torpedoes, and incendiaries that lit up the sky and cost the lives of all crewman aboard. Deak Parson, who knew just about all there was to know about the workings of our bomb, having participated in its development, was blunt and convincing as he spoke of risks. [note: this is why at the last minute Deak Parsons persuaded it should be done in spite of the close quarters] "If we crack up and the plane catches fire," he said, "there is danger of an atomic explosion that could wife [sic wipe] out half of this island."/Paul W. Tibbets/ [stamped in black] Pilot of the Enola Gay/Hiroshima, Japan 6 Aug. 1945.

        Typed Letter, Signed, to Fred. M. Vinson, Secretary of the U.S. Treasury.

      Washington D.C.: , November 16, 1945. Two pages, (280 x 216 mm), 29 lines, double spaced, approximately 350 words, signed Keynes. Staple removed from top left corner, folded for mailing, one or two light creases; in excellent condition. A typed letter signed, on headed notepaper of the United Kingdom Treasury Delegation, Washington D.C., written to Judge Frederic Vinson, who had taken over British financial matters from Harry Dexter White. Negotiations to finalise the American loan agreement began on September 13, 1945 and were finally concluded on December 6, when Halifax and Vinson signed the Anglo-American Financial Agreement. November 16, 1945. "Dear Mr. Vinson, After you had mentioned last week the high importance you attached to the Bretton Woods Plan being brought before Parliament as soon as possible, I cabled to the Chancellor of the Exchequer to ask him whether his arrangements were now sufficiently clear for me to be able to tell you anything about them. Yesterday I received a reply from him of which the substance is as follows. The Chancellor's present intention is to present the Bretton Woods Agreement to Parliament for approval as soon as possible. The procedure will probably take the form of the presentation of a Bill in which the House is asked to signify its approval of the signing of the Agreement. The Government will recommend to Parliament the approval of the Final Act. But the Chancellor of the Exchequer asks me to let you know that he must expect considerable criticism and opposition from both sides of the House. The Chancellor does not propose to wait until Congress has accepted any financial agreement which we here may reach with your Administration, though the Bill may take the form of authorising the signature to be given by our Government at the appropriate date. This would mean that the approval by Parliament would not necessarily commit us to signing but would put the Government of the U.K. in a position to sign at any convenient moment. Except in the event of our present financial talks breaking down, the Chancellor assumes, of course, that signature will be given before the operative date of the 31st December. It would only be in the event of a break-down in the financial talks that this programme would be interfered with. That, as I remember, was your understanding, namely, that whilst you hoped we would not wait for Congress, you were not expecting any action until our present talks had reached a successful conclusion. The Chancellor also asks me to emphasise to you that in any case the period in which we could hope to bring the Final Act into operation must depend, among other things, on the scale and terms of the assistance we receive from the U.S. Yours sincerely, Keynes The Honourable Fred M. Vinson U.S. Treasury Washington, D.C."

In: Silberklang, D. (Ed.): Yad Vashem Studies. Vol. 35:1. Jerusalem, 2007]This work is illustrated with 28 pages of photogravures depicting members of the Commission, Nazi prisoners who used to run the camp, and survivors alike testifying before the Commission.

        Futuristic Vacuum Train (1945) // New York-Philadelphia Vacuum Tunnel, Preliminary Design Features and Economic Analysis.

      Carbon copy of original. - 11x8 inches, 36 leaves, including 7 full-page figures. Carbon copy, formerly in the collection of the Library of Congress. I can find no other copies located by the WorldCat/OCLC. Punch bound in an original plastic cover, the front board of which is detached. Very good condition. John B. Prather launched an idea in 1945 for building a high-speed pneumatic passenger/freight train connecting New York City to Philadelphia. His New York-Philadelphia Vacuum Tunnel, Preliminary Design Features and Economic Analysis was exceptionally hearty. The idea is interesting in a removed, lets-not-do-it way because, well, it just doesn't seem to make sense in the long run, at least beyond the building of the thing to show that it could be done. And I don't doubt that could be the case--I just don't know why it was necessary. Mr. Prather's approach seems to be the work of an engineer, or at least he had some help. I doubt though that he had any help from a structural engineer or site geologist--his proposal was to build this tunnel 100' down through bedrock when it could be found, a level hundred-feet below the surface, from NYC to Philadelphia. The tube would accommodate an aluminum-shelled 400'-long train that would be hauling 350 people and 175 tons of freight at speeds of 400-600+ mph, making the run between the two cities in about 20 minutes. Not bad. He figures too that all of the freight could be offloaded in 7.5 minutes. This would make for a very busy train, though Prather doesn't tell us how many runs a day it would be making. This was all preliminary. The 16.2'-wide tunnel would be 456,720 feet long, and would cost $173 million to excavate and $41 million to line with cement--according to the author. The total cost for the ordeal would be about $334 million and would take 6 years, start to finish--that includes all of the tunneling, which would swallow/excavate/face 300' per day. I don't see, really, how this could be so narrow a tunnel--I'm not an engineer but it would seem that wear, heat and the abuse and so on that a massive and dense 400'-long missile going 400+mph would require something that was more than 125% of the width of its trains. There is however precedence for a massive tunnel of something like this size being built in something like this time--the Delaware Aqueduct is 82 miles long and 13 feet wide, and was built during the Second World War (1939-1945) , so, perhaps if enough people and money were thrown at a project like the vacuum tunnel could actually be built (barring geological problems). But it would all be worth it: Prather suggests that the overall revenue from the operation of the train to be $196 million/year with $32 million in yearly operating expenses. Which means that the whole thing could be paid for in three years or thereabouts. So if the things was started in 1946, it would all be finished and paid for by 1956. I've looked at a number of proposals like this over the course of this blog--like almost filling up the Narrows between Staten Island and Manhattan with an airport and seaport, and making a series of transoceanic airports for flights between the continents, and dropping a gigantic shell filled with people from the top/interior of the Eiffel into a narrow hole filled with water, and covering Midtown Manhattan with a rooftop airport, and covering Midtown Manhattan with a glass-ish dome, and so on--and I know that it is good for at least one thing: superb classroom discussion fodder of why something like this does or doesn't make good physical/economic etc. sense.

        Vintage Official War Office photograph showing Fieldmarshall Montgomery ("Monty") investing the Military Cross to later writer Peter Luke (Hadrian VII). Signed by "Monty".

      London, (c.) 1945 - Vintage Photograph. 9 cm wide x 16,2 cm high. Very good condition. The photograph protected by a letter from Peter Luke to his father Harry Charles Luke. The photograph signed by Field Marshal Montgomery. Peter Luke (August 12, 1919 – January 23, 1995) was a British writer, editor, and producer. Peter Ambrose Cyprian Luke was born in St Albans, he was the first son of Harry Luke. He had wanted to be a painter, and went to art school for 2 years before World War II occurred. He was awarded the Military Cross for his efforts. Some time after, he worked under producer Sydney Newman on the British television drama anthology Armchair Theatre, as a story editor. In 1959, he adapted Frederick Rolfe's novel Hadrian the Seventh. He was married to Carola Peyton-Jones (deceased), then Lettice Crawshaw (one daughter, one son deceased; marriage dissolved), and finally June Tobin (two sons, three daughters). He died in Cadiz on January 23, 1995. (Wikipedia) Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, KG, GCB, DSO, PC (17 November 1887 – 24 March 1976), nicknamed "Monty" and the "Spartan General", was a senior British Army officer who fought in both the First World War and the Second World War. He saw action in the First World War as a junior officer of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. At Méteren, near the Belgian border at Bailleul, he was shot through the right lung by a sniper, during the First Battle of Ypres. He returned to the Western Front as a general staff officer and took part in the Battle of Arras in April/May 1917. He also took part in the Battle of Passchendaele in late 1917 before finishing the war as chief of staff of the 47th (2nd London) Division. In the inter-war years he commanded the 17th (Service) Battalion, Royal Fusiliers and, later, the 1st Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment before becoming commander of 9th Infantry Brigade and then General Officer Commanding (GOC) 8th Infantry Division. During the Second World War he commanded the British Eighth Army from August 1942 in the Western Desert until the final Allied victory in Tunisia in May 1943. This command included the Second Battle of El Alamein, a turning point in the Western Desert Campaign. He subsequently commanded the British Eighth Army during the Allied invasion of Sicily and the Allied invasion of Italy. He was in command of all Allied ground forces during Operation Overlord from the initial landings until after the Battle of Normandy. He then continued in command of the 21st Army Group for the rest of the campaign in North West Europe. As such he was the principal field commander for the failed airborne attempt to bridge the Rhine at Arnhem, and the Allied Rhine crossing. On 4 May 1945 he took the German surrender at Lüneburg Heath in Northern Germany. After the war he became Commander-in-Chief of the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) in Germany and then Chief of the Imperial General Staff. (Wikipedia)

Le sue acqueforti di notevole espressività grafica e stile molto personale sono senza dubbio la più fedele rappresentazione grafica della Verona della prima metà del Novecento. Il famoso architetto, autore di decine di costruzioni civili private e pubbliche, era uso incidere per diletto poche copie non numerate, che spesso regalava agli amici. Ottimo esemplare con restauri al margine destro che non intaccano l'incisione.

        TLS-typed Letter Signed "Last Minute Preparations"

      - A Signed Statement on the Last Minute Preparations For the Enola Gay signed by Paul W. Tibbets Written shortly after the dropping of the Atomic Bomb about the Last Minute Preparations made on August 5, 1945. Typical of Tibbets typing were strikeovers and occasional misspellings. He notes that the clouds over Japan were breaking up, the lettering on the nose of the plain which the painter took less than half an hour to complete on the Enola Gay and the loading of the bomb. He gathered the so-called Tinian "joint chiefs" including himself, General Thomas F. Farrell, the Manhattan Project's key ranking officer, Admiral William R. Purnell, Navy Captain William S. "Deak" Parsons, who would be the chief weaponer on the flight: Commander Frederick L. Ashworth, another weaponer, Professor Norman F. Ramsey, who I first met in General [Uzal] Ent's office and Professor Robet Brode. General Farrell sent a message in code to General Groves who in turn passed the word of our scheduled 2:45 A.M. takeoff time to General Marshall. The tension in the Pentagon must have equaled that on Tinian. In the messages that flew back and forth across the Pacific during our period of preparation, there were code names for everything. I was "Yoke", Deak was "Judge", General Farrell was "scale", and General LeMay was "Cannon". The recent atomic test in New Mexico was called "Trinity", atom was "Top", atomic was "Topic" and uranium fission was "Urchin Fashion". At this morning's meetings, Captain Parsons startled us all by expressing concern over our plans to take off with a live atomic explosive in the bomb bay. In the few days since he had arrived on the island, he had witnessed a number of fiery crashes as overloaded B-29's failed to become airborne. Four crashes had occurred the night before with thunderous explosions of bombs, torpedoes, and incendiaries that lit up the sky and cost the lives of all crewman aboard. Deak Parson, who knew just about all there was to know about the workings of our bomb, having participated in its development, was blunt and convincing as he spoke of risks. [note: this is why at the last minute Deak Parsons persuaded it should be done in spite of the close quarters] "If we crack up and the plane catches fire," he said, "there is danger of an atomic explosion that could wife [sic wipe] out half of this island."/Paul W. Tibbets/ [stamped in black] Pilot of the Enola Gay/Hiroshima, Japan 6 Aug. 1945.

        Machines for Selling

      1945 - "THE KAWNEER COMPANY. Machines for Selling. Niles, Michigan: Kawneer Company, circa 1948. Large, oblong folio (18 by 24 inches), original blue paper wrappers, original morocco portfolio with snap tab. $2500.First edition of this early guide to modernist architecture and design for retail, profusely illustrated with drawings and diagrams."In the early 1940s, the Kawneer storefront company invited architects Ketchum, Gina & Sharp to remodel a full block of old commercial buildings along main street in Niles, Michigan, home of the company's plant; this new architectural firm was not ashamed to incorporate bold graphics. Store after store received the open-front treatment in the firms 1944 proposal Most of the storefront designs suggested a first story composed entirely of glass, with either a side wall or ceiling plane projecting beyond this glazing, like freestanding panels, out over the sidewalk. Free-floating display cases, some as low as coffee tables, rested in the void between the sidewalk and entrance. New wall sign lettering, significantly larger than the old and displaying great variety from business to business, announced the purpose of this design approach: to be accessible, appealing, and profitable. These were machines for selling, as the Kawneer ads for that year trumpeted. In 1948, Ketchum had produced enough work to publish a book that included his many drawings for proposed stores that emphasized large, recessed lobbies and angled sign panels Ketchum's storefront designs, including his love for creative lettering and graphics carefully integrated with the design whole enjoyed constant media exposure" (Treu, Signs, Streets, and Storefronts: A History of Architecture and Graphics Along America's Commercial Corridors, 165). Machines for Selling includes tabbed sections on Drugs, Foods, Jewelry, Furniture, Hardware and Appliances, Women's Apparel, Men's Clothing, Shoes, Variety Stores, Restaurants, Service Stores, Sporting Goods, Theatres, Flowers, and Candies.

        Denn eigenen Worten aus dem Sinn - Edition Galerie auf ZeitBerlin, November 2004. Künstlerbuch mit Gedichten vonThomas Brasch (aus dem Nachlaßband "Wer durch mein Leben will, muß durch mein Zimmer"), Siebdruckgrafiken von Klaus Zylla und einem eigens für dieses Buchprojekt geschriebenen Prolog von Th. Günther. - Format 50 x 40 cm. 30 numerierte und signierte Exemplare + ein e.a. - Exemplar. Hier handelt es sich um das e.a. - Exemplar !

      Thomas Brasch (19.2.1945 Westow/Yorkshire-England - 3.11.2001-Berlin) gehört zu den großen Dichter-Persönichkeiten deutscher Sprache. Sein Werk umfaßt Lyrik, Prosa, Theaterstücke, Filme und Übersetzungen. Sein Denken war stets so komplex, daß er in keine Schublade paßte (er machte es anderen nie leicht - zu deren Vorteil). Von besonderer Magie sind Braschs existentiell geprägten Gedichte, wortgewaltig und zärtlich zugleich.- Klaus Zylla hat sich in der Abgeschiedenheit eines portugiesischen Dorfes von diesen Versen vereinnahmen lassen. Herausgekommen ist dabei ein Buch, das wie aus einem Guß wirkt.- Und schön zu vermelden, daß mit dem Tag der Buchpremiere am 18.11.04 im Literaturhaus Berlin die Auflage als so gut wie vergriffen gilt... Im Ernst. Qualität braucht keine Werbetrommeln.

        WOMEN . . . OUR WOUNDED NEED YOUR CARE! [. . . ] Join a Hospital Company

      Recruiting Publicity Bureau United States Army, 1945. 1st Edition. Cream paper printed in blue, grey and white. Backed in linen with white paper coating to poster side. Fine condition.. Broadside. Linen-backed. Large illustration of a woman in a blue WAC uniform carrying a surgical tray. Poster: 37-3/4" x 25-1/4". Backing: 39-1/2" x 27-1/4" Although the U.S. Army Medical Department was one of the slowest to integrate women, when over 5,000 of its combat-ready men -- including many trained technicians and orderlies -- were forced to transfer to the Infantry in early 1944, the department began a major push to recruit women to fill the positions. The Female Medical Technician campaign, as pictured here, was hugely successful, despite the high qualifications demanded of applicants, many of whom were required to have advanced degrees and at least two years of experience in their fields. WACs also served as laboratory technicians, psychiatric social workers, medical stenographers, and in a variety of other technical and/or skilled medical positions; by the end of the war, the Medical Department employed approximately 20,000 WACs, nearly a fifth of the Corps. [Treadwell, United States Armies in WWII. Special Studies: The Women's Army Corps]The poster reads, in full: "Women . . . our wounded need your care! | You can help to give it . . . The U.S. Army Medical Department is calling for help -- the help of WOMEN -- needed in Army hospitals to serve as medical technicians, surgical technicians, and in other important assignments. Assignments also available at Army Air Forces, Ground Forces, and Service Force Installations. | Join a hospital company. | For information apply at any U.S. Army Recruiting Station or ask your local Postmaster."Uncommon, particularly in this fine of condition.

        A bori halálút regénye (The novel of the deadly path to Bor) [INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR]

      Gábor Áron, Budapest 1945 - Octavo (7 7/8 x 5 3/4"). 94, [2]pp. Original illustrated wrappers. Title page inscribed and signed by the author, and dated 1945. Palásti László's "A bori halálút regénye" is a survivor journalist's report on the Bor death camp where the author was called up for forced labor in 1944. Located in eastern Serbia, Bor has one of the largest copper mines in Europe. During World War II, the mines were under German rule, and an internment and labor camp was established at the site. During the period, roughly 6,000 people were imprisoned at the camp, including László Palásti, the author of this work, and worked at the copper mines. The prisoners were mostly of Jewish descent, as well as Sabbatarians and Jehovah's Witnesses. Later on, shortly before World War II ended, the mines were evacuated, with most of the prisoners executed. As one of the very few who survived the living hell that was Bor, László Palásti's "A bori halálút regénye" sheds a valuable light on the atrocities and dreadful conditions experienced at that camp.Wrappers age-toned, with minor rubbing along edges. Previous owner's stamp (Eder Gyorgy) on inside of front cover. Pages slightly age-toned along margin. Text in Hungarian. Wrappers in overall good to good+, interior in good+ to very good condition.
