        [PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF ORIGINAL IMAGES, RECORDING AMERICAN SCENES AND EXPERIENCES IN OCCUPIED JAPAN JUST AFTER WORLD WAR II]

      [Various locations in Japan, 1945. 124 silver gelatin photographs, mostly 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches, 106 of them in corner mounts. Contemporary blue cloth photograph album. Moderate edge wear and rubbing. Photos in generally nice shape. Very good. A fascinating vernacular photograph album capturing scenes in American-occupied Japan just after the Second World War. Most of the photographs are captioned in white ink on the black album pages, and organized in sections such as "Landmarks," "The People," "The Cities," "The Military," and "Personalities." "Landmarks" include views of sites in Kokura, Yakata, Okayma Prefecture, picturing shrines, country homes, water works, the "International Military Tribunal Far East," and more. "The People" shows Japanese residents of all ages, some in Western dress, others in traditional Japanese garb, standing in front of structures, on the streets, at a military checkpoint, playing "yakkyu national game" [baseball], swimming, and other activities. The section on the cities comprises street views in Okayama, Kokura, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Yakata, Tokyo, Kyoto, and Yokohama. Surprisingly, the four shots of Hiroshima do not contain much evidence of destruction, and provide a rare, contemporary glimpse of areas of the city not leveled by Little Boy. Views of Tokyo include the Dai Ichi Building, the Imperial Museum, and an image of an American soldier "on the Ginza." The various views in the other cities show Japan's largest steel works, a partially-demolished department store, temples, and the Yokohama wharf. The military section includes photographs of Okayama Post, the "A.G. Office," barracks, headquarters of the 24th Division in Kokura, Kyushu, the Kokura Arsenal and Post Exchange, Fukuoka's 118 Station Hospital, and more. The "Personalities" section is comprised of shots of American soldiers in and out of uniform, almost all of them identified by their first names or nicknames. This section also includes photographs of "A.G. Girls," a few Japanese people identified by name, American soldiers at the War Ministry Hotel in Tokyo, U.S. soldiers at the "4th Repl. Depot" in Sobudai," and more. A handful of the captions, and some of the loose photographs, are captioned in Japanese. Some of the loose photographs are stamped on the verso "Jack Woytych" with his Wisconsin address, though it is unclear whether this refers to the owner/photographer of the album or the printer of the photographs. Most of the loose photos emanate from Okayama. A noteworthy collection of personal images from an American serving in Japan at the end of World War II.

        Een Oorlog trok over Rotterdam / A War Drew Over Rotterdam 10-14 Mei 1940 A photographic record of the Blitz of Rotterdam.

      A wonderful photographic tribute to the people of Rotterdam. This leather-bound album contains over 140 original photographs of Rotterdam before, during, and after the German blitz bombing of the 14th May 1940. Full green leather with the crest of the city of Rotterdam to the front cover. A frontis photograph shows a memorial to the fallen of the blitz. This would seem to place this photograph in circa 1945 - but despite finding postcards and online images, this would seem to have been a temporary memorial pending a permanent one. A title page, shows a ruined church - with the title 'Een oorlog trok over Rotterdam 10-14 Mei 1940.' (all titles and ornamentation has been done with a dark graphite pencil). There are then several large photographs of the docks before the war. The last of these is a beautiful shot of the bridge with the imposing Witte building across the Maas. The following large photograph shows the Witte building standing amidst the smoke and flames, whilst the buildings around it are consumed by fire. A further 15 smaller photographs show smoke and burning buildings throughout the city. Three fascinating photographs follow. The first shows the SS Statendam before the war - following by the flagship ablaze, and finally as a burnt out hulk. The Statendam had the misfortune to be docked in the port when the Germans invaded. They occupied it and set up guns upon it during the invasion, and during a firefight with the Dutch army, it caught fire and was destroyed. The rest of the photographs show buildings, streets and churches before and after the blitz. The photographer was obviously a keen architectural photographer at the time Most of the photographs show a 'before and after' Nearly always from the same point and angle. It seems that after the blitz, he re-visited his previous subjects, to give the two perspectives and to make a unique record. Towards the end of the volume, are a small number of photographs showing the clear up of the damage and debris (including an 'action shot' of one building caught in the act of falling). This is a wonderful and unique documentary record of the blitz of Rotterdam. 139 original photographs (plus another few loose in an envelope). These are in three sizes. Large - (24cm W X 18cm H), Medium (17 cm W X 10cm H) and small (14cm W X 8cm H). Most are large or medium. The album itself is 35cm H x 25cm W.The Germans invaded the Netherlands on the 10th May 1940. Following fierce resistance within Rotterdam, they were unable to secure the centre of the city. Despite giving time for an ultimatum prior to a surrender, at 13.20 on the 14th May, a blitz of the residential parts of the city began. 117 bombers destroyed 25,000 buildings, and almost 900 people were killed.

        Franklin Delano Roosevelt Funeral ("FDR Funeral 1945") signed by the photographer Ed Clark

      Signed and inscribed by the photographer: "FDR Funeral 1945, Edward Clark - Life." Famed Life photographer Edward Clark took this celebrated picture in 1945 at the funeral of Franklin D. Roosevelt in Atlanta. "The area was in front of the building at the polio clinic where Roosevelt had spent so much time, [Clark] saw Navy bandsman, CPO Graham Jackson, playing away on his accordion while tears streamed down his face" (Clark, Decades). "Ed Clark's photograph, meanwhile, of an openly weeping Chief Petty Officer (USN) Graham Jackson playing "Goin' Home" on his accordion as FDR's flag-draped casket passes by in April 1945 has, through the years, come to symbolize not merely a nation's grief, but black America's acknowledgement of Roosevelt's efforts on behalf of civil rights while he was in office" (Life website). Gelatin silver gelatin print. 8 x 10 inches.

        Scrapbook]: World War II Air Force Pilot and POW Album

      Oregon, Texas 1945 - Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 15". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "The Ideal Scrapbook" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 35 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 2.5" and 6" x 10" with captions, as well as 193 letters, 16 newspaper clippings, 3 pictorial postcards, and various military ephemera. Photo album is good with detached pages, spotting, and tears with near fine photos and letters with occasional tears.A scrapbook kept by First Lieutenant Richard "Dick" H. Spooner and his mother, Ruth, while Richard was serving with the 8th Air Force during World War II between 1943 and 1945. Spooner wrote his mother often beginning with his basic training and continuity through his shipment overseas, all discussed in just under 200 letters he composed to her during the war. Many of the letters are on military letterhead including Spooner's Air Force stationary as well as various bases. Originally from Oregon, Spooner joined the war effort in 1943 and attended the San Antonio Aviation Cadet training center. There he took classes and underwent exams to determine whether he would be trained as a bombardier, navigator, or pilot. An official Air Forces letter dated January 29, 1943 states that Spooner was given his classification, pilot, and began his preflight training which would take about nine weeks. In a letter dated January 30, 1943 he writes to his family, "By the time you get this letter you will probably have gotten my note and the copy of my classification for pilot training. That is really super isn't it? God but I was really nervous when I took that darn physical and I was damned anxious when I was waiting for my classification."A letter from Major General G.C. Brant, at Randolph Field, Texas dated March 2, 1943 to Ruth Spooner reads, "I note that your boy, now an Aviation Cadet, has been specially selected for training as a Pilot in the Army Air Forces.The duties of an Army Pilot call for a high degree of mental and physical alertness, sound judgement, and an inherent aptitude for flying. Men who will make good material for training as Pilots are rare.Comprehensive tests indicate that your son stands a very good chance of successfully completing the rigid training for an army pilot and you have every reason to be proud of him."By May, 1943 Spooner was preparing to fly and was moved to Corsicana Field in Texas to begin his flight courses. "After ten months of waiting I am just about ready to fly." Later in June of '43 he writes, "I got great news for you today. We just got in from the flying line and guess what, I soloed today - (long pause)." He writes in a letter soon after, "We have been flying in the mornings and we get out as early as possible. I got two hours and a half in the air today and my instructor said I gave him a damned good ride." While nearly the end of his flying training he writes, "Am having a lot of fun flying as we are now on the acrobatic phase. This is really fun and it is just like riding around with a stunt flyer. We started doing loops and snap rolls today. These are exciting as hell and it's more fun than going to Jantzen Beach." He continues, "everything sure looks queer upside down but in a loop you have no sensation of being upside down."After completing flying school Spooner was shipped to Enid, Oklahoma for basic training at the Enid Army Flying School. By the end of August Spooner had been promoted from Cadet Major to Cadet Colonel. He wrote to his mother saying, "I am the King Commander and thus the hour charger of the entire Cadet Detachment on this post. I was very happy about getting a crack at this job as it will mean plenty on my service record." As they neared the end of their training the cadets went on flights outside of Oklahoma to nearby states. On September 17 Spooner took a night flight to Anthony, Kansas writing, "It isn't a very long fight but it should be a lot of fun and by the time that I leave here there w

        Genshi Bakudan].

      - Tokyo, Domei Tsushinsha September 1945. Octavo printed wrapper; 32pp including wrapper, untrimmed and loose (as issued?). Expected browning of the paper, a couple of corner creases and short tears to the spine. Published as Domei Sosho No.1 by Domei - the national news agency - on 20th September 1945, apparently the day before the US occupation censorship had time to be fully implemented. Domei Sosho no.2 was on the Potsdam declaration and there, I think, the series ended. I have read that 200,000 copies of this were printed. Worldcat locates no copies - though there are copies in perhaps nine Japanese libraries - and it doesn't appear in the catalogue of the Prange collection - the world's largest collection of occupation era documents, collected by the official historian to the occupation. There is nothing much to be found in English on Takeo or his pamphlet. As I can best figure, the story is that Takeo was a scientific and/or political correspondent for Domei and spoke English. He and a colleague listened in to allied broadcasts, translated Truman's statement on the bombing of Hiroshima and was the first to tell the Japanese government that the "new bomb" was an atomic bomb. Takeo's widow and son published a memorial book in 1995 with background and contemporary papers which doesn't seem to have worked its way to writers in English. From my stumbling through a review of that book I get the impression that Takeo was seen as an apologist for the US and their use of the bomb which was unfair. He was attempting to give as objectively as possible as much information as he could and what information he had came only from what could he could scrape together from radio broadcasts. How much of this view of him was long after the fact I don't know. He had been or became - I'm not clear on this - a communist journalist which can't have endeared him to any authorities. There is a modern facsimile of this which may or may not be related to the book published by Mrs Takeo - it seems likely. That should not be mistaken for this. Neither should Takeo Takei the journalist be confused with Takeo Takei the illustrator.

        Scrapbook and Photo Album of Philadelphia Attorney and Artist William J. Conlen

      [Philadelphia]: [no publisher], 1945. Very Good. Small quarto. Blue cloth gilt, entitled Book Shelf Scrap Book. Very good condition, with some yellowing to newspaper clippings and occasional loose items. Contains newspaper clippings, 32 gelatin silver photographs, typed poems and notes, letters to Conlon, and an original pen and ink design for a bookplate for Conlon by designer William Lewis Plack, all apparently compiled by William James Conlen's wife, Jean, and focusing on the years 1932-1939. Much of the material details the Conlen's relationship with the family of Jasper Yeates Brinton, a justice and later President of the international court presiding in Alexandria, with whom Conlen attended the University of Pennyslvania law school.Conlen was also an enthusiastic amateur artist and friends with noted artist Walter E. Baum, and there are original photographs of Baum and Conlen painting in rustic outdoor locations, as well as a newspaper clipping of an article written by Baum. A number of the photographs are taken in Egypt, but the photos primarily detail painting expeditions and family visits outside Philadelphia, in Rockport, Massachusetts and (perhaps) Chicago, as well as a number of undetermined locations. The final set of clippings focuses on relations with Mexico in the mid to late 1930s. Besides being a prominent admiralty lawyer and a skilled amateur painter, Conlen was the author of a number of books and articles, including Philadelphians Abroad and Vignettes of Mexico. The entire work provides an interesting overview of the concerns, work and leisure time of this well-connected Philadelphian, with some emphasis of the Buck's County art scene in the 1930s.

        [Scrapbook]: World War II Air Force Pilot and POW Album

      Oregon, Texas, 1945. Very Good. Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 15". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "The Ideal Scrapbook" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 35 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 2.5" and 6" x 10" with captions, as well as 193 letters, 16 newspaper clippings, 3 pictorial postcards, and various military ephemera. Photo album is good with detached pages, spotting, and tears with near fine photos and letters with occasional tears.A scrapbook kept by First Lieutenant Richard "Dick" H. Spooner and his mother, Ruth, while Richard was serving with the 8th Air Force during World War II between 1943 and 1945. Spooner wrote his mother often beginning with his basic training and continuity through his shipment overseas, all discussed in just under 200 letters he composed to her during the war. Many of the letters are on military letterhead including Spooner's Air Force stationary as well as various bases. Originally from Oregon, Spooner joined the war effort in 1943 and attended the San Antonio Aviation Cadet training center. There he took classes and underwent exams to determine whether he would be trained as a bombardier, navigator, or pilot. An official Air Forces letter dated January 29, 1943 states that Spooner was given his classification, pilot, and began his preflight training which would take about nine weeks. In a letter dated January 30, 1943 he writes to his family, "By the time you get this letter you will probably have gotten my note and the copy of my classification for pilot training. That is really super isn't it? God but I was really nervous when I took that darn physical and I was damned anxious when I was waiting for my classification."A letter from Major General G.C. Brant, at Randolph Field, Texas dated March 2, 1943 to Ruth Spooner reads, "I note that your boy, now an Aviation Cadet, has been specially selected for training as a Pilot in the Army Air Forces...The duties of an Army Pilot call for a high degree of mental and physical alertness, sound judgement, and an inherent aptitude for flying. Men who will make good material for training as Pilots are rare...Comprehensive tests indicate that your son stands a very good chance of successfully completing the rigid training for an army pilot and you have every reason to be proud of him."By May, 1943 Spooner was preparing to fly and was moved to Corsicana Field in Texas to begin his flight courses. "After ten months of waiting I am just about ready to fly." Later in June of '43 he writes, "I got great news for you today. We just got in from the flying line and guess what, I soloed today - (long pause)." He writes in a letter soon after, "We have been flying in the mornings and we get out as early as possible. I got two hours and a half in the air today and my instructor said I gave him a damned good ride." While nearly the end of his flying training he writes, "Am having a lot of fun flying as we are now on the acrobatic phase. This is really fun and it is just like riding around with a stunt flyer. We started doing loops and snap rolls today. These are exciting as hell and it's more fun than going to Jantzen Beach." He continues, "everything sure looks queer upside down but in a loop you have no sensation of being upside down."After completing flying school Spooner was shipped to Enid, Oklahoma for basic training at the Enid Army Flying School. By the end of August Spooner had been promoted from Cadet Major to Cadet Colonel. He wrote to his mother saying, "I am the King Commander and thus the hour charger of the entire Cadet Detachment on this post. I was very happy about getting a crack at this job as it will mean plenty on my service record." As they neared the end of their training the cadets went on flights outside of Oklahoma to nearby states. On September 17 Spooner took a night flight to Anthony, Kansas writing, "It isn't a very long fight but it should be a lot of fun and by the time that I leave here there will be a full moon...At night the moon is really beautiful from about 5000 feet and it seems that you are even nearer to God."The final step in Spooner's flight training was "Advanced Flying School" at Foster Field in Victoria, Texas. These letters are written on letterhead from the field with the header, "University of the Clouds." During these advanced classes the focus was on instrument training, radio communication, and problem solving to assure the success of the pilots in combat situations. "It will be a lot of hard work but will be good life insurance in case we are ever lost in bad weather." In November he discusses the planes he's been working with saying, "Flew the P-40 again today for an hour and it is getting to be more and more fun. As I get used to flying it I think I will really enjoy it. It is so much more powerful and faster than an AT-6, but of course no two types of planes will fly alike." On December 5, 1943 Spooner graduated from Foster Field as a "Pearl Harbor class of flyer." In an official letter to his parents by H.H. Van Auken, Colonel Air Corps, his commanding officer writes, "Your son, Richard, graduated today...behind him now are many months of tough, hard training -- training so severe that only the best qualified have made the grade. The silver wings he has won are proof he belongs in the finest group of pilots in the world today, the Army Air Forces." After graduating Spooner was stationed at the Army Air Field in Galveston, Texas as a Lieutenant in the Air Corps where he awaiting his overseas orders. On June 6, 1944 he writes, "I'd surely like to be over there in it. Everyone has had their ear pressed to a radio all day trying to get some news. Tonight one of the nurses and I went to Chapel as there was a special prayer meeting to say a few for the guys over there." In July he writes, "Well I guess that what I've been expecting and hoping for for quite a while is just about ready to materialize and I'm not exactly sad about it. We expect to ship overseas in the near future but when only the Lord and the brass hats know. In the meantime we are impatiently chomping at the bit and waiting for that big day." By the end of the month he was at an air field in England where he piloted both a P-47 and P-51 for the 8th Air Force. He writes, "I was so struck with this country and by its peacefulness that I wrote a poem. Sort of corny but nevertheless a poem." His poem begins, "If this be England, then I know why so many men were willing to die; why so many heroes gave their all that this fair land should never fall." He writes his mother, "can't tell you much about my flying as this is a combat outfit and hence it is all forbidden." The letters stop at the end of 1944.In January of 1945, while on a mission to Germany his plane was shot down and Spooner was declared missing in action. He was accompanying a bomber squadron targeting a train near Bruehaal, Germany when he was shot down. The official report reads, "While strafing in the vicinity of Bruehaal on January 15, 1945, Lieut. R.H. Spooner was attacking a train...On the second pass while he was firing, small arms fire was returned from the train. Black smoke and flame appeared under the left side of the engine. Lieut. Spooner pulled up and jettisoned his external tanks and canopy after being warned his plane was burning. It appeared he did not have specific altitude to bail out. The plane went down, apparently under control, for an attempted forced landing. As he neared the ground, his right wing struck a tree, the ship was broke up and burned. Circling aircraft could see no signs of life."Later it was discovered that he had been taken prisoner after his crash. According to a newspaper clipping, "the P-47 Thunderbolt pilot was credited with damaging a Junkers 88 and had been awarded the air medal for meritorious achievement in his plane, "Portland Rose," shortly before his capture. Spooner was liberated from prison camp in April of 1945. Two small clippings document the news with headlines reading, "Portland Pilot Among Liberated," and "Richard Spooner Freed."An extensive collection of letters, photographs, and ephemera documenting a World War II pilot's entire training process as well as his tour of duty and his capture after a near fatal plane crash.
