        Signed Vintage Photograph

      1945. unbound. Exceedingly rare black-and-white portrait on a 10.5 x 8.25-inch heavy-stock board, taken by "Starvis & Ewing," official photographers of the British Royal Family. The photo shows Abdullah as King Regent and Field Marshall, war-dated January 1, 1945, boldly signed "Abdullah" in English and Arabic, not personalized as it would be considered demeaning. Authentic signatures of Starvis and Ewing on the lower border attest to the fact that this is an official portrait. Abdullah is extremely rare due to the fact that he was assassinated at age 45. Unevenly trimmed along the bottom edge, but still in very good condition. Cousin and brother-in-law of King Ghazi, brother of King Faisal II, son of King Hussein. Abdullah assumed power upon the death of King Ghazi, serving as Regent for the underage Faisal II. He was overthrown in 1941 in a coup d'etat by pro-German Iraqi leaders but emerged two years later, with the rank of Field Marshall, reinstating the royal family to power in Iraq. In 1945 Abdullah was the honoree at the very first State Dinner hosted by newly sworn-in President Truman. In 1958 Abdullah broke from Nasser's United Arab Republic and was butchered and murdered along with all of the Royal Family. "The people dragged Abdullah's body into the street and tore him apart limb from limb....burning what was left...effectively ending the Iraqi monarchy," -- Time Magazine, July 21, 1958.

        Eighteen page handwritten letter, signed twice, to his intimate friend revealing a devastating past, his love for his wife and the rationalization of his feelings for both women

      Autograph Letter Twice Signed, 18 pages on 81/2 sheets of lined notebook paper, 8" x 10.5", December 18, 1945, Las Vegas, Nevada. Stapled at upper corner. Neat and bold cursive with folds. Lower half of final leaf excised with some loss of text. Near fine condition.This extraordinary December 1945 letter from Guthrie to his close and often intimate correspondent Charlotte Strauss offers a rare glimpse into his personal life through moving declarations of love for his wife Marjorie, the devastation of his mother?s death ?in the pads and cells of the asylum for the insane? (of the same illness, then unknown to Guthrie, that would cause his own death), the contrast of his blunt honesty set against known infidelities, and his loneliness on the Las Vegas air base awaiting his discharge. As biographer Joe Klein notes, Guthrie?s letters, always compelling, now ?became a dark, convoluted, and frightening maze in which he spent [this] month of December 1945...

      Monterey, CA: Jo Mora Publications, 1945. Fine condition; colors are crisp and bright. Color pictographic map. Image size 24 3/8" x 18 1/4". This was the second and smaller California map Jo Mora drew as well as his last map. The Del Monte Canning Co. commissioned the map for promotional give-aways. As a means to save money, they used somewhat thin paper for the first run and some of the colors (blues and green) did not take as strongly as others. Within a short period of time, they switched to a heavier paper resulting in the colors keeping their strength and brightness. This map is on the heavier paper with the darker greens and blues. As with all Jo Mora cartes, it is packed with historical information and details, creatively and colorfully illustrated. He added details to this version, such as the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges that were not around in 1927 for his first, larger map. (Grandeau & Shorts Cartes 11; Gilmore M17)

      Jo Mora Publications. Monterey, CA. 1945. - Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, map 24 3/8 x 18 5/16 inches on sheet 25 x 19 inches. Professionally conserved with paper backing, very good condition. Jo Mora is perhaps the best known and well loved of all the pictorial map makers of the early and mid twentieth century. Mora experimented with printing this map on different types of paper; a few maps were printed on this tan paper before Mora settled on the glossy white paper which is the more common paper for these 1945 maps. This lively and informative map of California has place names, mountains, railroads etc marked and named, with small cartoon-like pictures (pictographs) to indicate the main attractions eg. a movie being made with a couple embracing for Hollywood, a football player for the University of California at Berkeley, and grapes and winemaking at various locations including San Bernadino and Fresno. At the upper right where Nevada would be on the map, there are pictures depicting various aspects of California life and history - all done with a great sense of humor. The frieze starts with "California's Melting Pot" depicting the people of California from historical figures (Sir Francis Drake) to the people of modern California (ending with G.I. Joes and Football Heroes). Below that is "California Transportation Throughout the Ages" from Early Spanish Caravels to "Our state-wide highway system is a mecca for tourists." In the ocean are inset pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and S.F. Oakland Bay Bridge, and a section of 20 small images of the missions of California.

        Pipe Night

      NY: Duell, Sloan and Pearce. (1945). An uncommon book by the author of Butterfield 8 and Appointment in Samarra, among others. Inscribed by the author to WEAF radio personality Mary Margaret McBride in the year of publication: "To Mary Margaret/ and how are your/ taste-buds?/ Sincerely/ John O'Hara/ WEAF/ 20 March 1945." Books inscribed by O'Hara are uncommon, although later in his career he did a number of signed limited editions. A fragile book, cheaply produced under wartime conditions, this is a very attractive copy. Some spotting to rear board and fading to spine cloth; near fine in a very good dust jacket with a couple of small, internally tape-mended edge tears. First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Big Sea: An Autobiography [*SIGNED*]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1945. 3rd printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . [nice clean copy, slight crimping at the spine ends and very minor bumping at the corners; jacket very lightly rubbed, minor wear evident at a couple of corners]. INSCRIBED and SIGNED (in 1948) by the author on the ffep, to noted African-American artist and collector William McBride; the inscription reads "To Bill McBride -- / my first / autobiography, / Sincerely, / Langston Hughes. / Chicago, May 22, 1949." The African-American poet/novelist/activist's first memoir, first published in 1940. (He would produce another volume, "I Wonder as I Wander," in 1956.) This later printing, at the tail end of World War II, occasioned the inclusion on the second front endpaper of "A NOTE REGARDING THE PAPER on which this book is printed," which explained that when this edition was being prepared "at a time when the kind of paper normally used for books simply was not available" due to wartime restrictions, so the publishers had gone ahead with the paper they could get, a goldenrod-colored stock (which is actually quite attractive). A nice association between two major African-American cultural figures; in addition to being a highly-regarded artist, noted for the many murals and posters he produced under WPA aegis in Chicago during the Depression, McBride assembled an outstanding collection of posters, programs and political pamphlets documenting African-American life in the city, which he ultimately donated to the Chicago Public Library.

Accompanying the manuscript is an Autograph Note Signed from Burman to his book editor delivering the finished work. Burman, born in Covington, Kentucky in 1896, published numerous novels set in the South, with many centered on life along the Mississippi. His earlier novel, Steamboat Round the Bend, was the basis for the 1935 film of the same name starring Will Rogers. A world traveler and veteran of both World War I and World War II, Burman was among the first correspondents to reach the Free French capital of Brazzaville in independent French Equatorial Africa during WWII, an experience that greatly informed this story. With a supplied copy of the first edition of Rooster Crows for Day (New York: E.P. Dutton 1945). .
