        Richard Wright's Blues

      [s.l.]: Reprinted from the Antioch Review, Summer 1945 - First separate edition. Publisher's white paper wrappers, lettered in black. About near fine, with some light toning and faint soiling to the wrappers, minor chip to the spine tail, a few faint stains to the otherwise clean pages. Overall, a very clean and attractive copy of this exceedingly scarce publication. This essay was first published in The Antioch Review in the Summer of 1945 and was republished from a newly set text for this separate format. However, as the wrappers only cite the details of the original serial, it is difficult to say whether this publication is also from 1945 or from 1952 (based on the nondescript "52" next to the publisher's slug on the rear wrapper). Regardless, Richard Wright's Blues is a scarce and important text in Ellison's oeuvre, published before (or in the same year) he achieved literary fame for Invisible Man (1952). Only five copies are listed in OCLC's WorldCat. Richard Wright's Blues is Ellison's review of Richard Wright's then recently published autobiography, Black Boy, which tells of the author's childhood in Mississippi and coming of age in Chicago. Throughout the essay, Ellison uses the Blues, itself an artistic expression of the Southern African-American experience, as a focal point to examine Black Boy and to place it within the larger context of the historical expression of the collective African-American experience. As Ellison explains, "The Blues is an impulse to keep the painful details and episodes of a brutal experience alive in one's aching consciousness, to finger its jagged grain, and to transcend it, not by the consolation of philosophy, but by squeezing from it a near-tragic, near-comic lyricism. As a form, the Blues is an autobiographical chronicle of personal catastrophe expressed lyrically." He argues that Black Boy is Wright's expression of the struggle of growing up African-American in the United States. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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)

        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.
