        Record of the Technical Companies of the 40th County of London (G.L.C.C.) Battalion, Home Guard. 1942 – 194 [With:] Photographs of the Training and Operational Tasks carried out by the Technical Companies of the 40th County of London (G.L.C.C.) Battalion, Home Guard. 1942 – 1945.

      [London: 1945] - 2 volumes, folio and landscape folio. Original grey light card wrappers, ruled and lettered in black to front, volume 1 staple-bound, volume 2 with red cloth spine. Volume 1 spine a little chipped, volume 2 wrappers slightly marked, extremities bumped, rear wrapper a little nicked and creased along top edge, inked number to margin of first leaf, light marginal toning to a few other leaves, the images never affected. Very good condition overall, the contents clean, the prints crisp and fresh. 10 folding text-leaves printed on india paper; 17 mounted silver gelatin prints, of which 15 approx. 110 x 150 mm, and 2 of smaller dimensions. Text and prints rectos only. Fascinating mimeographed report on the Home Guard battalion formed by engineers from the Gas Light and Coke Company in 1942, with a volume of fine photographs. Rare, with no other copy traced in libraries or in commerce, except an ambiguous reference in the National Archives at Kew. After repair work from the Blitz eased off in the autumn of 1941, company engineers sought special permission from the War Office to form a "mobile Royal Engineer platoon based at Ilford, in which capacity they could be available to undertake specialist engineer tasks, subject to the prior claims of Civil Defence" (Introduction). Authority was granted in January 1942 and units were formed at Ilford, Westminster, Pound Lane, Seven Sisters, Goswell Road, and Heston. The report comprises a diary of events, summaries of field works, training, and inspections, letters of commendation and details of awards and social events. The photographs depict inspections by Arthur Smith and Charles Lloyd (GOC London District 1942-4 and 1944-7 respectively), bridge construction over the Roding, a Sten gun range at Chiswick, the demolition of various strong points to clear Heathrow airfield, and plans "for work carried out at Becher Street, Kensington, to demonstrate methods of placing groups of houses in a state of defence". "From the very beginning industrial concerns made a considerable contribution to the growth of a voluntary movement The reliance upon industry did bring difficulties even if urban units invariably had greater access to convenient premises Many of the original factory units were not incorporated into local battalions initially but allowed to remain separate with the result that large numbers of men were not fully utilised in local defence plans: their only concern was the defence of their own premises. Similarly, the public utility battalions clearly faced something of a conflict of interest in the event of an emergency and were generally organised on a regional basis unsuited to any active participation in local defence. It was not long before most factory units were integrated into local defence schemes" (Beckett, The Amateur Military Tradition 1558-1945, pp. 278-9). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Statistics of Food Supply in the United Kingdon

      Ministry of Food. London 1945 - [February]. Statistics of Food Supplies, Stocks and Utilisation 1940 - 43. Loosely bound into heavy grey boards tied with cord. SECRET printed to front board, this being copy No.90. Contents: Introduction; Index; 86pp. of tables. A very significant document, this dense collection of statistical analyses represented intelligence of the highest importance. Despite great efficiencies and unparalleled investment in an agricultural sector which had reached near-bankruptcy in the 1930s, the UK never achieved total self-sufficiency in food production during WW2. The data summarised in this document was essential to the planning and allocation of the strategic resources required to sustain a war economy. The three years covered here were especially challenging; prior to 1943 the U-Boats of the Kriegsmarine had been inflicting extensive losses on shipping supplying the imported goods required by the UK economy. This document is a product of the extensive administrative and planning apparatus required to record and allocate foodstuffs. From the introduction: "These tables are circulated for internal use within the Ministry of Food with the primary object of establishing standard data for working purposes. They have been compiled from information supplied by the statisticians attached to the Commodity divisions, the information itself being derived from the returns and records maintained by the Divisions under the schemes of control which they administer. The statistics are for the most part secret (especially those relating to stocks) and should be kept under lock and key." There follows 86 pages of folding tables detailing every aspect of the supply, stocks, importation, and utilisation of all manner of foodstuffs available to the UK economy between 1940 and 1943. Includes data on losses through Air Raids and "Disappearance". Covers soiled and marked. Contents fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Une étude sur l'Apocalypse. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated November 3, 1943 the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the publication of the study of Father HM Feret on the Apocalypse of St. John and the Christian view of history. Full typescript is attached. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought. " (C. Bident). The autograph manuscripts of Maurice Blanchot are of great rarity. S.n. (Journal des débats) s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945) 13,5x21cm & 4 pages in-4 4 1/2 pages in-8

Until the publication of A General Account research and development had been undertaken in conditions of the utmost secrecy and the report was also prepared in secret. However, the British and American governments decided that the widest dissemination of this "remarkably full and candid account" (PMM) was in the public interest, and this first edition was distributed to journalists for radio use on 11 August and for press use the next day. This first edition with a Foreword by L.R. Groves is described as a "lithoprint" and was printed in the Adjutant General's office in the Pentagon from a typescript."All pertinent scientific information which can be released to the public at this time without violating the needs of national security is contained in this volume. No requests for additional information should be made to private persons or organizations associated directly or indirectly with the project. Persons disclosing or securing additional information by any means whatsoever without authorization are subject to severe penalties under the Espionage Act" (Groves, from the Foreword).Although it does not state anywhere, this copy belonged to American physicist and director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Norris Bradbury. In July 1944, Bradbury a naval commander, transferred to Los Alamos to work on the Manhattan Project. In 1945, Oppenheimer resigned as director of Los Alamos and recommended Bradbury for his replacement.Norman Library 1962. Printing and the Mind of Man, 422e.HBS 67805.$5,000

Zitat: "Als Anfang Mai 1945 der Zweite Weltkrieg beendet war, hatte es Nierendorf trotz aller Widrigkeiten geschafft: die Galerie in New York war fest etabliert, er hatte Klee, Kandinsky, Feininger, Hofer, Scharl, Lehmbruck u. a. in Amerika zur Anerkennung verholfen, ihre Werke wurden von amerikanischen Museen ausgestellt und von neuen Sammlern erworben. Seine erste, vermutlich im Oktober 1945 gezeigte Ausstellung nach Kriegsende, "Forbidden Art in the Third Reich", diente wieder der Bewußtmachung. Doch diesmal ging es darum, was das gerade ausgelöschte Dritte Reich der Kunst im Namen der "Reinhaltung" der deutschen Kultur angetan hatte und was es Kunstliebhabern in aller Welt trotzdem nicht hatte rauben können: die Verbundenheit mit der deutschen modernen Kunst."

Noted by Kennedy in lower left ""Airmail.""In full, ""Dear Eleanor: I've been waiting to hear from you for some time, and your valentine (for which I thank you) let me know that you were still with us and not in defending your country's honor and your own - in the Philippines or some place like it. I still have great hopes that you will be coming out this way. If you do - please - I say again, please - let me know where you are going - for if it is near - I will come on the double. Try and take any leave you get on this end - as it is wonderful country and you would love it. Wonderful air - riding etc. and I think I'm getting in better shape - though it goes surprisingly slow.

Kennedy, USNR, was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps medal ""for extremely heroic conduct as Commanding Officer of Motor Torpedo Boat 109 following the collision and sinking of that vessel in the Pacific War Area on August 1-2, 1943. Unmindful of personal danger, Lieutenant (then Lieutenant, junior grade) Kennedy unhesitatingly braved the difficulties and hazards of darkness to direct rescue operations, swimming many hours to secure aid and food after he had succeeded in getting his crew ashore. His outstanding courage, endurance and leadership contributed to the saving of several lives and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service."" The Medal was presented to John F. Kennedy by Capt. Frederick L. Conklin, Commandant of the Chelsea Naval Hospital. It was while he was at the Chelsea Naval Hospital for surgery in the summer of 1944, that the 27-year-old Navy Lieutenant met 24-year-old Navy nurse, Elinor Dooley.Michael O'Brien wrote, in John F.

Jack and his father agreed; Jack should spend an indefinite period, perhaps as long as a year, resting in Arizona."" In Arizona, Jack stayed at the Castle Hot Springs Hotel in Castle Hot Springs, a health spa leased by the U.S. military, from January to March 1945.In 1947, Navy nurse Elinor Dooley (1920-2009) married Navy doctor Clyde J.

        First Iwo Jima flag raiser John H. Bradley's very own dramatic, huge color Official Poster, signed by him and Fellow raiser Gagnon

      n.p.: , n.d, 1945. n.p., n.d.. 18.5" x 26". "Original, twice signed, Vintage Official U.S. Treasury Poster with the official U.S. Government Printing Office stamp, dated 1945, followed with the code of 0-637980, and with the statement 'Official U.S. Treasury Poster / U.S. Marines at Iwo Jima, painted by C.C. Beall from Associated Press Photo"" along the bottom edge. 18.5"" x 26"". Personally owned by John Bradley, and handed down to his son, James Bradley. Signed by both John Bradley and Renee Gagnon. The poster has strong vibrant colors with a 1/4"" reinforcement to the verso top edge. A few locations of thinning paper, and a few very tiny pin holes, all of which are not visible unless the poster is held up to light. Expected folds, else near fine.A signed magnificent original poster; personally owned by John Bradley and handed down to his son James Bradley, who has certified the piece was from his personal collection.One of the most iconic images of U.S. Marines Iwo Jima , this picture was first caught as a photograph by Joe Rosenthanl of the Associated press and eventually won the Pulitzer prize. This image was later memorialized in Arlington Virginia as a national moment. Signed by both John Bradley as ""John H. Bradley Ph. M2C Navy"" and Renee A. Gagnon as ""Pfc Rene A. Gagnon U.S.M.C."" The flag raising at Iwo Jima occurred twice in the battle. The first was at 8 AM on February 23, when Bradley and Navy corpsman, PhM2c. Gerald Ziehme (replaced PhM3c. Langley who was wounded in action on February 21), were part of the 40-man combat patrol (mostly from Third Platoon, Easy Company) were sent to climb up the east slope of Mount Suribachi to seize and occupy the crest and to raise an American flag to signal that the mountaintop was captured. On top, the Marines found a steel pipe to attach the flag unto. The flagstaff was taken to the highest position on the crater. Seeing the raising of the national colors immediately caused loud cheering from the Marines, sailors, and Coast Guardsmen on the beach below and from the men on the ships near the beach. After the flag was raised, Bradley, who was with the group of Marines near the flagstaff, pitched in to help the flagstaff stay vertical in the terrific winds on the volcano.The Second Flag raising, the one memorialized by the Pulitzer prize winning photo, was initiated using a larger flag in order for the American flag to be seen more easily from the ships, beaches, and land off and around Mount Suribachi. Marine Sgt. Michael Strank was ordered to ascend Mount Suribachi with Marines from his squad and raise the replacement flag and return with the first flag that was flying on top.A moment of enormous historical importance, beautifully memorialized in this stunning twice signed poster by two heros from Iwo Jima. John Bradley was one of the first flag raisers at Iwo Jima, and a awardee of both the Navy Cross and the Purple Heart for his contributions during the battle, and Rene Gagnon is best known for being one of the six flag-raisers who helped raise the second U.S. flag at Iwo Jima. A spectacular example made that much more significant with its important provenance. Documentation from Bradley's son who authored ""Flags of our Fathers""."

        Photograph titled "Native Huts in Tangong Cattong" TOGETHER WITH Original Watercolour "Under the Equator near Malacca Straits".

      Watercolour dated1945. Photograph undated (1930?). A pair of Singapore images - a photograph and a watercolour from the photograph.Undated gelatin silver photograph by G.R. Lambert & Co laid down onto card. Title directly beneath the photograph. Photograph measures 19.3 x 26cm, card 24 x 30cm.Watercolour on thick paper, signed "Arnold 1945" near the lower left corner, "Under the Equator near Malacca Straits" pencilled along lower edge. Some minor damage with loss to the paper two corners not affecting the image, a little occasional spotting, sections of mounting tape on reverse, but overall very good. 38 x 46cm. A scarce pair: a gelatin silver photograph of Katong from the studio of G.R. Lambert and an original watercolour painted from the photograph.The image depicts a typical Malay house beside a river situated in what is today Katong an area in central Singapore spanning Upper East Coast Road and Tanjong Rhu. Scenes such as this would have been common in Singapore showing a traditional house built from local materials, nipah palm for the walls with an attap roof, would have been common in the days prior to removal of the kampungs. These old houses were typically built on stilts - this not only protected the building from flooding and animals, and provided storage space but also, along with the design of the roof and the full-length openable window spaces - increased the overall ventilation and kept the interior cool. Shade from nearby palms and other trees was also important in reducing the build-up of heat in the kampung. In this image a family is shown squatting near a flat-bottomed boat on the edge of the river near a boat, indicating that their likely main source of income was from fishing.

        Das königliche Schloß in Potsdam (Stadtschloss), 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 24 x 39 cm. Blattgröße 44,5 x 63 cm.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (Träger etwas gebräunt und angestaubt, mit kleinen Randläsuren, am linken Rand etwas blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie. Wohl erstes großformatiges Foto des von Knobelsdorff erbauten, 1945 zerstörten und 2014 neu errichteten Schlosses. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive (dieses nicht) wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwa dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl.

        They Seek a City

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran. 1945. Inscribed by the authors to poet and all-around rogue Max [Bodenheim], "the King of Greenwich Village." A June 13, 1945 inscription from Bontemps reads, "To Max - the kind of friend that sustains the weary traveler seeking a city - with warm regards and deep appreciation - Arna." To which Conroy has added, "& Jack/ who makes Max's pleasant joint his headquarters." A wonderful triple association, between one of the key figures of the Harlem Renaissance (Bontemps), one of the most highly regarded of the "proletarian writers" of the 1930s (Conroy), and the "king" of the Greenwich Village bohemians, and linking the three social movements they represented. A history of African-American migration in the United States; an updated edition was published in 1966 as Anyplace But Here. The inscription is on the front flyleaf; there is a small foredge tear on the half title. Minor edge wear to boards; a near fine copy, in a supplied, very good dust jacket with several small edge chips and one at mid-spine. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

      Washington DC: War Department, 1945. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Preface dated July 1, 1945. 4to (263 x 199 mm). [8], I:1-19 [1], II:1-10, III:1-7 [1], IV:1-15 [1], V:1-9 [1], VI:1-14, VII:1-15 [1], VIII:1-17 [1], IX:1-13 [1], X:1-10, XI:1-13 [1], XII:1-12, XIII:1-3 [1], A1:1-6, A2:1-2, A3:1-3 [1], A4:1-5 [1], A5:1 [1]. Leaf IV-9/10 a dublicate. With the printed version of page VI-12. Original printed cream paper wrappers, staple-bound as issued. Front wrapper somewhat buckled at edges and with light water, a few leaves with short tear to blank fore-margin, otherwise clean and unmarked. Added is the first printed edition of the General Account by the Government Printing Office, Washington DC (Coleman No. 5), stapled and pasted into printed cardboard case as issued, 8vo (229 x 148 mm), vii, 182 pp. The set is housed in a custom-made clamshell box. A fine copy. ----PMM 422e; Norman 1962; Coleman, The "Smyth Report": a Descriptive Check List, No. 3. This is the rare lithoprint version of the Smyth Report on the creation of the atomic bomb and one of Henry DeWolf Smyth's own copies, signed by him on the title page, complete and in original wrappers, one of only 1000 copies printed, accompanied by a copy of the first printed edition of this work in octavo format. The Smyth Report is renowned for its "remarkably full and candid account of the development work carried out between 1940 and 1945 by the American-directed but internationally recruited team of physicists, under the code name 'Manhattan District,' which culminated in the production of the first atomic bomb" (PMM). This is a copy of the lithoprint version, preceding the first printed edition and intended for press release distribution immediately after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945. The lithoprint version was produced from stencils made by several typewriters in the Adjutant General's Office, along with a virtually unobtainable 12-chapter mimeograph version (Coleman No. 1) and a very small number of 'ditto' printings with text in purple (Coleman No. 2), sent out to project leaders and a few others belonging to the Manhattan District work. All copies of the mimeograph version were probably destroyed. It is not yet determined if the Ditto version precedes the Lithoprint version or not, and it might be just a proof copy. This copy includes the secret page VI-12 which is left blank in most copies, because it deals with production rates of plutonium. Since the leaves were gathered for binding in great haste and under tight security, surviving copies often contain missing and/or repeated leaves. No leaves are missing in this copy. Very Good....
