        President Harry S. Truman’s Presidential Proclamation Announcing the End of the War in Europe

      Washington, D.C. 1945 - Printed Document Signed as President. Washington, D.C., May 8, 1945. 1 p., 15 x 21 1/2 in. "The Allied armies, through sacrifice and devotion and with God's help, have wrung from Germany a final and unconditional surrender . The victory won in the West must now be won in the East. The whole world must be cleansed of the evil from which half the world has been freed." Complete TranscriptBy the President of the United States, a Proclamation. The Allied armies, through sacrifice and devotion and with God's help, have wrung from Germany a final and unconditional surrender. The western world has been freed of the evil forces which for five years and longer have imprisoned the bodies and broken the lives of millions upon millions of free-born men. They have violated their churches, destroyed their homes, corrupted their children, and murdered their loved ones. Our Armies of Liberation have restored freedom to these suffering peoples, whose spirit and will the oppressors could never enslave. Much remains to be done. The victory won in the West must now be won in the East. The whole world must be cleansed of the evil from which half the world has been freed. United, the peace-loving nations have demonstrated in the West that their arms are stronger by far than the might of dictators or the tyranny of military cliques that once called us soft and weak. The power of our peoples to defend themselves against all enemies will be proved in the Pacific was as it has been proved in Europe. For the triumph of spirit and of arms which we have won, and of its promise to peoples everywhere who join us in the love of freedom, it is fitting that we, as a nation, give thanks to Almighty God, Who has strengthened us and given us the victory.Now, therefore, I, Harry S. Truman, President of the United States of America, do hereby appoint Sunday, May 13, 1945 to be a day of prayer. I call upon the people of the United States, whatever their faith, to unite in offering joyful thanks to God for the victory we have won and to pray that He will support us to the end of our present struggle and guide us into the ways of peace. I also call upon my countrymen to dedicate this day of prayer to the memory of those who have given their lives to make possible our victory. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States of America to be affixed.Historical BackgroundAfter nearly six years of conflict across the European continent, President Truman was pleased to announce that Germany had surrendered to the Allies. Though Japan would fight on for another three months, Truman read this proclamation at a news conference held in his office at the White House at 8:35 A.M. on Tuesday, May 8, 1945. His wife and daughter, members of his Cabinet, high ranking United States and British Army and Navy officials, and Congressional leaders were grouped in chairs around the President's desk. Before reading the proclamation, President Truman said, "This is a solemn but glorious hour. General Eisenhower informs me that the forces of Germany have surrendered to the United Nations. The flags of freedom fly all over Europe. It's celebrating my birthday, too -- today, too." Reporters responded with shouts of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President." May 8, 1945 was President Truman's 61st birthday, his first as President following the death just 26 days earlier, of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. As he was reading the proclamation, Truman stopped after certain passages to comment. After "The victory won in the West must now be won in the East," he said, "I want that emphasized time after time, that we are only half through." After "the tyranny of military cliques that once called us soft and weak," Truman commented, "I would like to know what the Germans think about that now." After proclaiming the day of prayer, he added, "And it's exceedingly fitting that it is Mother's Day, too.

        [2 Photographs of Atomic Bomb Damage in Hiroshima]

      Hiroshima: United States Strategic Bomb Survey, [ca. 1945]. Very good +. Two black-and-white gelatin silver photographs, each measuring 4” x 5” approx. Typed captions to versos. One bearing large ink stamp of the Hiroshima-Matsuyama ferry line. Mild wear. Very good or better. A pair of official United States Strategic Bomb Survey (USSBS) damage prints of Hiroshima taken November 28, 1945. One is an exterior view of the Chugoku Coal Distribution Control Company (designated Building 12 by the Survey); the other captioned as: “Building 300 ft. NWW from GZ [Ground Zero]. No structural damage.” The history of photo documentation in the months just after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is one of official censorship. General Macarthur’s order in late 1945 explicitly banning photographs of the sites has meant that images of the immediate aftermath are scarce, and these survey photos remain perhaps the best and most accurate sources extant. The largest collection of such photos is at the I.C.P.; individual examples are rarely seen.

      1945. Original photograph album. Original Cloth. Very Good. This album contains 67 high-quality b/w photographs, 41 taken by Col. Swift, the remainder taken by Col. Jay D.B. Lattin. Swift's photos are two sizes: the smaller, numbering 34 shots, with images measuring approx. 3 ¼" or 3 ½" by 5 ¼" or 5 ½"; and the larger, numbering 7 shots, measuring approx. 6" x 8 ½". Col. Lattin's photos are approx. 4 ½" x 3 ½" or 5 ¾" x 9 ½". Of the 67 images, 45 depict scenes in Algiers, Algeria (41 taken by Swift, 4 by Lattin). The remaining shots (all Lattin's) include scenes in Marseilles, Montargis, and Toulon. All photographs are labeled in Swift's very precise printing by hand. The album also contains originals, and some copies, of documents relating to Swift's postings April-May, 1945, Also present are two maps: folded map of Paris and the Metro system, and a one-page map of London and its Underground stops, along with a small four-page booklet on the Cumberland Hotel in that city. The physical album measures 11" x 14", post-bound white cloth bordered by red tape, and contains 50 pages. The album was created by Col. Robert Gray Swift, Signal Corps, with a hand-printed cover reading: "Trip to E.T.O./ [Signal Corps insignia]/ Spring-1945/ Algeria/ Col. R.G.Swift". All lettering throughout the album is in Swift's precise, draughtsman-like hand. Col. Swift (a "Lt. Col." in the earlier documents) was serving at the Central Signal Corps School at Camp Crowder, MO, when he and Col. Jay D.B. Lattin, (HQ, Second Service, Command, Governor's Island, NY) were ordered to report to Washington prior to being sent to Paris for 30 days to survey training installations there and to recommend improvements. (Document #1, April 10, 1945). On April 25, Swift receives a document (printed in French and English and accomplished by hand) signed by French General Merlin, (Chief Signal Officer of Ground Air and Naval Forces), "honouring him for his services" and authorizing Swift to wear the French Signal Corps insignia (Document #2). On May 2, 1945, Swift receives orders to go from E.T.O. Headquarters to Algiers for 10 days, along with Col. Hattin and Lt. Col. Paul Gilbert Raymond of the French Army (Document #3). The terms of Document #1 are then extended by 15 days (Document #4, May 16, 1945). On May 27, Swfit is ordered to London for 7 days (Document #5), and on May 30, (Document #6) he receives notification from the E.T.O. office that he is indeed authorized to wear the French insignia bestowed on him in Document #2. ~~ The photographs Swift takes in Algiers include highly evocative glimpses of the native populations in the streets and at the Casbah and public market, well as shots of French and American military personnel. Photos include birds-eye views, the mosque used as an air raid shelter, the King George Hotel (which was "Gen. Eisenhower's North African HQ"), the French Signal School, the Governor General's Palace and its guards, the "harbour", the Church of Notre Dame, ruins of an old Roman temple near the city, and the Christian Martyr's Tomb and its "keeper". Personnel at the French Signal School and French Radio Intercept Station are seen: two "Merlinettes" (i.e. women "pigeoneers" holding their birds), and Lt. Touche and other staff including two "French WACS". Three photographs document "Arab soldiers entertaining their military "guests" at an outdoor feast of pit-roasted lamb and side dishes. Lattin's five views of Algiers include the French Signal School and its staff, along with a mosque and worshippers. Of Col. Lattin's other photos, 6 were taken at the Montargis Signal School and include "German P.W.s", the School buildings and staff officers "at the officers' chateau", and a shot of Swift, Col. Raymond and the School Commandant together. Seven views taken in "Marsailles" (Marseille) include street scenes, Notre Dame church, the waterfront, and candids of the officers, including Le Man and Raymond. Also seen are two views of the waterfront at Toulons showing bombed buildings, and two of a "Mediterranean waterfront" en route from Marseille to Cannes.

Text in Spanish. Paper sl. browned although in very good/ fine condition, see picture. This (scarce) magazine is edited by 'Father Julio Meinvielle (31 August 1905 - 2 August 1973) an Argentine priest and prolific writer. A leading Roman Catholic Church thinker of his time, he was associated with the far right tendency within Argentine Catholic thinking. As a polemicist he had a strong influence on the development of nacionalismo. Meinvielle studied for his Doctorate in Philosophy and Theology in Rome and soon afterwards became a prolific writer of religious, historical and economic books within the school of Thomism. Meinvielle was a staunch critic of what he perceived as slipping standards in Catholic teaching. On this basis he had a well publicized feud with Jacques Maritain' - source, wikipedia. 2040g [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A General Account of the Development of Methods of Using Atomic Energy for Military Purposes Under the Auspices of the United States Government (1940-1945)

      Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1945. Printed Wrapper. Quarto. A complete copy of the rare Litho-print issue, of the Smyth Report. (193)pp., Single sheets, stapled, with textured cream-colored wrappers. The following litho-printed on the front: "Released for Publication on__________." As professor Smyth states, the litho-printing was done, under heavy security, in the Adjutant General's Office, in the Pentagon. Perhaps that would explain why the several copies, which have come to market, are missing a leaf or two, or have extra leaves. The PRESENT COPY IS COMPLETE, and includes the VERY SECRET PAGE VI-12, with the following leaves in duplicate: VII-9 and VII-II. Page VI-12 is blank in most copies, because it deals with plutonium production rates; page VI-12 is present in our copy. A very good to fine copy. Housed in a handsome half-leather clamshell box. NOTE: The preface is dated July 1, 1945 and precedes the Princeton University edition of August , 1945. Wayne W. Johnson's copy, director of human resources, with his ink signature on front wrapper.

        Commentarios Reales de Los Incas and Historia General del Peru 5 volumes

      Buenos Aires: Emece, 1945. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 2nd Edition. Five volumes, VG, burgundy leather, five compartments, gilt spine titles, Edited by Angel Rosenblat, prologue by Ricardo Rojas, 2nd edn, Spanish text, occasional spotting on fore-edges, wonderful condition of very important historical work. Lovely woodcut designs for chapter heads and tails. Volume five has complete index. While in Spain, Garcilaso wrote his most well-known work, Comentarios Reales de los Incas, published in Lisbon in 1609. It was based on stories and oral histories told by his Inca relatives when he was a child in Cuzco. The Comentarios have two sections and volumes. The first was primarily about Inca life. The second, about the Spanish conquest of Peru, was published in 1617. It was first published in English in London in 1685, translated by Sir Paul Rycaut and titled The Royal Commentaries of Peru.[6] More than a century and a half later, in 1758 when the uprising against colonial oppression led by Tupac Amaru II gained momentum, Charles III of Spain banned the Comentarios from being published in Quechua language in Lima or distributed there for its "dangerous" content. The book was not printed again in the Americas until 1918, but copies continued to be circulated secretly. It was translated and printed in English in 1961 in the United States. Ángel Rosenblat (1902, Wegrów, Poland - 1984, Caracas) was a Venezuelan philologist, essayist and Hispanist of Polish descent. He and his family moved to Argentina when he was six and he spent his whole education there, including at the University of Buenos Aires (where he was teaching when he edited this collection), where his classmates included Amado Alonso, and in its Institute of Philology, where his teachers included Pedro Henríquez Ureña. He is the author of at least seventeen important works. Bio data from Wikipedia. .

      Une maquette préparatoires à la gouache, 21 x 13.5 cm, en couleurs, joint une carte publicitaire imprimée (1945). Deux arlequins "siamois" sont masqués et on ne voit que leurs visages, leurs cous et leurs mains. L'un tient un coquillage, l'autre un miroir en forme de fleur. Ils sont habillés de capes qui cachent leurs corps et ne laissent apparaître qu'une de leur main qui attrape un flacon de Parfum RIVAL. Le fond vert-amande contraste avec le bleu et le rouge profond. Joint un calque, sur lequel une imagerie XIXè représentant une licorne a été collé, à superposer sur la maquette. Raymond SAVIGNAC se forme en autodidacte jusqu'à ce qu'il rencontre CASSANDRE en 1933 ; il devient son élève, et s'associe avec Bernard VILLEMOT. Ses publicités séduisent par des gags visuels et des associations ludiques. Il travaille pour les marques Rival, Air France, Frigeco, Bic, Citroën... RIVAL, célèbre maison de parfums, a été fondée en 1939 par Jean CLAVELIER à Neuilly.

        TLS-typed Letter Signed "Last Minute Preparations"

      1945. A Signed Statement on the Last Minute PreparationsFor the Enola Gay signed by Paul W. TibbetsWritten 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.
