        'Coastal Scene, Morotai'. A well-executed watercolour on paper (an impressive 274 x 397 mm) mounted on cardboard and captioned on the original attached matt (external dimensions 405 x 505 mm). The painting (featuring tents and simply-constructed dwellings nestled among palm trees), is in fine condition; the matt has a thin light tidemark along the bottom left-hand margin

      The artist is unidentified, but he was possibly attached to No. 9 Repair and Salvage Unit RAAF (9 RSU). The Australian War Memorial website states that in 1945 three artists already serving with the RAAF were seconded to the RAAF War History Section as artists - Harold Freedman (1915-1999), Max Newton (1919-1975), and Eric Thake (1904-1982) - but they may be excluded as possibilities. According to the Operations Record Book of 9 RSU (in the National Archives of Australia), an advance party arrived at Morotai on 31 January 1945, with the main party and equipment following in mid-March. The Spitfire Association website adds: '457 Squadron, as part of the 1st Tactical Air Force ... was deployed to Morotai in the Indies in early 1945. Beginning on the 10th February 1945, operations continued at a high intensity for the next three months. Then the Squadron relocated again, commencing operations from the island of Labuan, on the Borneo coast, on the 19th June, primarily in support of the Australian land campaign in British North Borneo. It mounted its last operational sorties on 13 August, two days before the Japanese surrender'. The painting would appear to be contemporary.

        A Diabetic Manual for the Mutual Use of Doctor and Patient SIGNED

      Lea & Febiger 1945 - "A Diabetic Manual for the Mutual Use of Doctor and Patient" by Dr. Elliott Joslin, 7th Edition. Published in 1945 Lea and Febiger in Philadelphia. The book measures 5.5'' x 8.25'' and is 238 pages. Signed by the author. The book is in very good plus condition. The corners are bumped. Slight foxing on the title page, fore-edges, and at limited points throughout the book.The boards are slightly stained and sunned, with light shelf wear. The text block is bright, complete and largely clean. Inscribed "With best wishes, Live ever fully, but remember sometime there will be still better methods of treatment". Dated November 20 1945. "Elliott Joslin was the first doctor in the United States to specialize in diabetes and was the founder of today's Joslin Diabetes Center. Dr. Joslin was involved for seven decades in most every aspect of diabetes investigation and treatment, save for the fact that he did not discover insulin. Following the Toronto group's blockbuster discovery of insulin in 1921, and the group's disbanding several years later, Joslin became effectively the Dean of diabetes mellitus. In the mid 1920s, Joslin, in his mid 50s, took the reins as the world spokesman for the "cause of diabetes." He was the first to advocate for teaching patients to care for their own diabetes, an approach now commonly referred to as "DSME" or Diabetes Self-Management Education. He is also a recognized pioneer in glucose management, identifying that tight glucose control leads to fewer and less extreme complications." - Wikipedia Dr. Joslin was a Yale and Harvard graduate, and the Joslin Diabetes Center is affiliated with Harvard Medical School. This will make this book of special interest to any Harvard alumni, medical professionals, or those interested in medical history. The book is an important part of the history of medicine and the fight to make diabetes a livable illness instead of a death sentence. Inventory # (H6-66) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The largest part of the book describes Surinam's flora and fauna, in particular commercial crops like sugarcane, coffee, cacao and cotton.

        Jonques et Sampans.

      Paris Horizons de France 1945 - 4to., 154, [iv]pp., 148 colour illustrations including 16 full-page, in sheets in original wrappers, card chemise and slipcase, a fine example. First edition of this beautifully illustrated work, limited to only 525 copies. The illustrations, printed in a very high quality, offer a sharp-eyed account of Charles Fouqueray's voyages from Singapore to Hong Kong, Macao, and Shanghai. Representing the different shapes of boats in these regions, the watercolours also focus on the local sailors and fishermen in action. Fouqueray's use of a large range of colours to depict the sea's various tints and shades conveys a poetic atmosphere to his illustrations, signed with his orientalist monogramme. A map, at the very beginning of the book, represents part of the Asian coast that was explored and drawn by Fouqueray. The French author Claude Farrère (1876-1957) became known for his novels set in exotic places. After a twenty-five year career in the Army, he decided to concentrate entirely on writing. Winner of the Prix Goncourt in 1905 for his novel Les Civilisés, he was elected chairman of the Academie Française in 1935. Farrère wrote this work on the suggestion of his friend the illustrator Charles Fouqueray, who had sent him watercolours made during a trip in Asia. Charles Fouqueray (1869-1956) studied art at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris, where one of his masters was the well-known Academic painter Alexandre Cabanel. First interested in painting, he then specialised in illustration, in particular in news magazines such as Le Monde Illustré and L'llustration. In Jonques et Sampans, these two artists convey, mixing text and illustrations, their personal impressions on the East-Asian navigators, ships and waterways. The introductory chapter, written by sea captain and author of several naval history books Auguste Thomazi, gives a thorough but readable description of the two Chinese boats that compose the title of this work: the junks and sampans. In a very personal and easygoing style, Claude Farrère narrates his memories and thoughts about past experiences related to sailing on the East Asian coast. On the original covee are four Chinese characters. They read, as translated in French by the publisher, L'apparition des voiles and Le clapotis des rames.

Geographical Handbook Series. - Probably one of the best-researched set of books on China during the turbulent period, covering all aspects of the vast country under occupation, with revolutionary movements thriving, civil war and uncertainty of the future. Volume I contains information about physical geography, history and peoples, followed by chapters on modern history and administration in the second volume. Economic geography, ports and communications are illustrated and described in the concluding volume. 'A series of intelligence handbooks produced during the First World War had proved valuable both during the conflict and as subsequent reference sources. Early in the Second World War the Director of Naval Intelligence ordered the preparation of a new and improved series to meet the requirements of the day. The Handbooks were designed to provide, in the words of the Preface, "for the use of Commanding Officers, information in a comprehensive and convenient form about countries which they may be called upon to visit, not only in war but in peace-time; secondly, to maintain the high standard of education in the Navy and, by supplying officers with material for lectures ... to ensure for all ranks that visits to a new country shall be both interesting and profitable"' (Cambridge Archive Editions, who reproduce a few titles of the series, online). The series was edited by Kenneth Mason (1887-1976), a geographer-soldier, mountaineer and the first statutory professor of geography at Oxford University. Inspired by Younghusband's Heart of a Continent as a child, he conducted intense surveys of the Himalayas and was awarded an RGS medal in 1927 for his surveys of India and Russian Turkestan as well for his leadership of the Shakshagam Expedition. 'Mason also revitalized the links between geography at Oxford and practical service. These had begun with the RGS's involvement in the establishment of the discipline at Oxford and were fostered by Halford Mackinder and particularly his successor, A. J. Herbertson. Under Mason, with his extensive contacts in the military services, government, the city, and the RGS, the school consolidated its practical focus, linked to regional planning, surveying, exploration, teaching, and colonial service. A notable product was the Admiralty handbooks produced during the war when the school became an intelligence unit' (ODNB). China Proper seems to be amongst the rarest Naval Intelligence Division Georgraphical Handbooks of the Second World War.

        [Notebook of poetry]

      Unpublished; Handwritten by the Author, 1945. The only copy in existence. Hardcover. VG- (Content clean and tight but with age toning to leaves. Covers rubbed; wearing at outer edges.). Outer Physical Description: Red leatherette covers with a Merkbuch notebook, originally blank, with grid graph paper, inserted into slit in back cover. Notebook is removable, to be replaced with another in the red folio cover. Includes slant pocket inside front cover and upper/lower flaps inside back cover, both for placing receipts, photos, and extraneous pieces of paper. The gilt front lettering is, "Erste osterreichische SPAR-CASSE, WIEN," the oldest savings bank in Austria, founded in 1819. The book measures 16x21 cm and 1 cm in thickness. Internal Physical Description: Inscription page followed by a mix of 33 pp. with writing on only one side, 10 with writing on both sides, and the remaining 15 pages blank until the end of the book. Two pages have been torn out and are not present. Two small pieces of other paper, one hand-written, one typed, are laid in. Content Description - all content is handwritten, presumably by Neris: The front free end paper contains the writing, "Wien 23.11.44, A. Civilyte," although the A could possibly be an F. This notebook was in the personal book collection of American artist Will Barnet and his wife, Elena Civilte Barnet, who was Lithuanian. The book could have belonged to a family member, or it could have been given directly to Elena by Neris. An inscriptionon on the following page is in Lithuanian and appears to be a short poem. The handwriting makes it somewhat difficult to differentiate among the letters m/i/u/n/ and f/p/h/k, etc. It reads, as far as I can guess, as: "Musu dienos-kaip švent kaip žyd jimas vypuios! / Tad skub kim gyventi, nes praeis, nebegri jos! - S. Neris 1945. Geguzes 5d. Wittenwater," which translates loosely as "Our days - how the feast is like flowering! / So let's rush to live, because it's gone, do not stop it! - S. Neris, 1945. May 5th. Wittenwater." (Neris died two months later, in July in Moscow.) The notebook contains other poetry by Neris and by another Lithuanian poet, Henrikas Nagy, as well as some poetry and prose by Rilke, Nietzsche, Neris, and Akhmatova. The works of Rilke and Nietzsche are written in German; the poem by Akhamatova is written in Russian (Cyrillic); and all poems by Neris and Nagy are in Lithuanian. Two of Neris's other poems are Gyvenimas giesme (A Song of Life) and Tokios Tolimos (So Far Away). Some of the pages look as if there is narrative written below the poetry. I am surmising that these may be Neris's comments or critiques of the works. Description of the separate two pieces of paper laid in: One is a half piece of lined tablet paper. On it is a poem, Chanson d'Automne, by P. Verlaine, written in French by hand (probably Neris's), in ink, with a free-hand sketch of a woman and two flowers. The other piece is a half sheet of plain paper, typed, with a hand-written note in the margin, dated 1946. The text of both the poem and the note is in Lithuanian, and the poem it titled, "Lietuvaitei" (For Lithuanians) The poem is dated "Stutthofo Koncentracijos lageris, 1943. VIII. 26 diena," meaning it originally was written August 26, 1943 in the Stutthof Concentration Camp. I cannot find information about Neris in the Stutthof camp, but the Lithuanian poet, Balys Sruoga, was, and his dates correspond with Neris's, so the poem could be his. Family of Neris: Neris married Bernardas Bucas, a sculptor. She had a son, Saul Bucas, who died in 2004. Saul was married to Laima Bucas. Supposedly, Neris had/has 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Her granddaughter, Salome Buca, attended an event on July 7, 2015 honoring the 100th anniversary of Neris's death, held at the Salomeja Neris Museum in Kaunas. Final Note: The initial inscription/poem seems quite poignant (something about passing and not returning...). If this is, indeed what it seems, this could well be one of the last handwritten compendiums by Neris with her own poetry and examples of her favorite poetry by other writers. There is a little flower tucked between two pages of the book. Unique. No other in existence.

        Notorious (Original screenplay for the 1946 film)

      Los Angeles: RKO Radio Pictures, 1945. Temporary screenplay for the 1946 film. At 162 pages (the equivalent of nearly 3 hours' running time), this script is much longer than the final edited version, and like many Selznick scripts in the draft stage, is not quite complete (though the camera direction is already quite detailed), ending with the line "Alex, are you mad?" as called for. One of the great Hitchcock films, and one of a handful he made that ventured into more serious dramatic content outside the thriller genre. Though not credited as a screenwriter in the final film, Hitchcock and Hecht holed themselves up in a room in New York City for days developing the inital screenplay draft, this being the immediate result. Nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay. Pale blue titled wrappers, noted as Temporary Screenplay on the front wrapper, dated June 11, 1945, with credits for director Hitchcock and screenwriter Hecht. Distribution page present, with receipt intact, rubber stamped Script No. 2578. 162 leaves, mimeograph, with white revision pages dated 6/12/45. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine bound with three silver brads. Criterion Collection 137. National Film Registry. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime. Selby Canon US. Silver US. Spicer US.

        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.
