        The Pursuit of Love - In the first issue wrapper

      Hamish Hamilton, 1945 A first edition, first printing published by Hamish Hamilton in 1945. A very good book with one small name to the front free endpaper. Some spotting to the page edges and a little fading to board edges. In a very good unclipped wrapper (notoriously frail), which has a little soiling to the rear panel and some little loss to the corners and to the tail of the spine. One closed tear to the top of the spine. A little creasing and a thin circular faint stain to the front panel. A very rare book in the true first issue blue wrapper designed by Roger Furze.

        Naked City

      New York: Essential Books,, 1945. Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to front cover and spine in dark blue. Spine ends and tips a little worn, cloth darkened, front hinge cracked but holding. A very good copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, below the printed dedication to the people of New York, "+ especially to Frank McFadden, 'who helped bring The Naked City to the flickers'. Weegee. 1947." McFadden was employed by producer Mark Hellinger, who acquired the rights to the Naked City for his 1948 film, directed by Jules Dassin. Naked City, Weegee's first book of photographs, partly inspired the visual style of the film; Weegee was hired as a visual consultant for the project. His nickname (from the Ouija board) derived from his apparently psychic ability to beat authorities to the crime scene, a feat actually made possible by eavesdropping the emergency services on a portable police-band shortwave radio. He maintained a working darkroom in the trunk of his car in pursuance of this urgent street aesthetic.

        Manuscript

      Princeton, NJ 1945 - The calculations in the first two pages relate to a generalization of the general theory of relativity that Einstein was working on in connection with his unified field theory. In a paper of June 19, 1945, Einstein had proposed a generalization of the mathematical foundations of general relativity. He proposed to generalize the theory such that distances in space would be invariant (unchanging) not only under changes of the frame of reference (as in the original theory) but also invariant under so-called Hermitian transformations. In a follow-up paper of January 24, 1946 (co-written with E.G. Straus), the authors note that Pauli had shown them that the limitation to Hermitian transformations is not necessary for the theory.Indeed, in the first two pages of the document Pauli shows that a restriction to Hermitian transformations is problematic, and he suggests an even more general transformation group, and thereby provides a generalization of the alleged structure of space and time that goes further than that proposed by Einstein in his 1945 papers.The pages were very likely written for Einstein. They are not formally addressed to him, most likely because Einstein and Pauli were both at the same Institute at the time and Pauli could just put his notes in Einstein's departmental pigeonhole himself. Still, the calculations finish on a personal note: "Best regards, on Monday morning I'll come to the Institute, Yours, W. Pauli"; likely an invitation for further discussion between two of the greatest minds of the twentieth century.Einstein was at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton from 1933 to his death in 1955. Pauli was a visiting professor in 1935 and then again from 1940 to 1946. When Pauli received the Nobel Prize in 1945, Einstein gave a speech in which he called Pauli his intellectual heir. Indeed, there are many signs that Einstein and Pauli had regular contact and conversations on physics during their joint time at Princeton, and the first two pages of the manuscript are likely an important testament to their collaboration.The third page is also in Pauli's hand, but it is not directly related to the preceding pages, even though it, too, contains differential geometric calculations, related to curvature of spacetime and which paths through spacetime are the straightest ones.Pauli (1900-1958) was certainly one of the foremost theoretical physicist of modern times. He was one of the co-creators of quantum mechanics, he formulated the Pauli exclusion principle (which allows for a quantum mechanical explanation of the periodic table of chemistry), gave the first theoretical account of electron spin, and successfully predicted the elementary particle we today call the neutrino. Pauli formulated the CPT Theorem, which links the symmetries of space and time to the properties of elementary particles. For decades, he was the nexus of international correspondence on theoretical physics, maybe the last theoretician who overlooked the entire field, and was aptly called "the conscience of physics" by most of his contemporaries due to his relentless criticism of everyone's work, no matter their stature.By the age of 21 Pauli had authored a comprehensive textbook on the general theory of relativity that was immediately praised by Einstein as an astounding piece of work. It remained one of the most important textbooks on the topic for at least four decades.Thanks to Dr. Dennis Lehmkuhl of the Einstein Papers Project at Cal Tech for his help in translation and explanation.

        Autographs of Yalta Conference Members Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin.

      Autographs of the three world leaders that met at the historic 1945 Yalta Conference held in Crimea. Signed by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, "October 7, 1948. W. Churchill"; President Franklin D. Roosevelt in full on a White House card; and Joseph Stalin on a clipped Stalin Prize Certificate with the USSR Seal, "J. Stalin" and "Y. Chadev" of the Council of the People's Commisars. Matted and framed with an original photograph of the three members of the conference. The entire piece measures 22.5 inches by 22.5 inches. Signatures of Stalin are exceedingly scarce. The Yalta Conference was held in the Crimea in February of 1945 brought together the 'Big Three' Allied leaders of WWII. The conference's aim was to negotiate the terms of the End of WWII and Europe's postwar reorganization, most importantly the defeat of Nazi Germany and re-establishment of the nations conquered and destroyed by Germany. In his Address to Congress on the Yalta Conference on March 1, 1945, President Roosevelt stated, "There were two main purposes in this Crimea Conference. The first was to bring defeat to Germany with the greatest possible speed, and the smallest possible loss of Allied men. That purpose is now being carried out in great force. The German Army, and the German people, are feeling the ever-increasing might of our fighting men and of the Allied armies. Every hour gives us added pride in the heroic advance of our troops in Germany--on German soil--toward a meeting with the gallant Red Army. The second purpose was to continue to build the foundation for an international accord that would bring order and security after the chaos of the war, that would give some assurance of lasting peace among the Nations of the world".

        Original and Carbon Material from the U.S. Navy Bombardment Survey, July 1945

      Manuscript 1945 - +++Original and Carbon Material from the U.S. Navy Bombardment Survey, July 1945+++ This small archive—from the estate of J.D. Coker, who served in the U.S. Navy on the US Strategic Bombing Survey Ships' Bombardment section, and who later became a leading official in the U.S. Atomic Preparedness programs (such as the President's Committee on Emergency Preparedness)—are mimeographs and manuscripts that comprise what seems to be the summary of the Navy's bombardment of Kamaishi, Muroran, Hitachi, Kushimoto, Shimizu and Hamamatsu. This was about the extent of the Allied naval bombardments against Japan, as it was not possible for battleships to maneuver close enough to the Japanese homeland to fire against industrial and production centers. (It may have also been the case that the aircraft used to protect the assaulting ships could have perhaps done as much damage to the targets as the ships themselves.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [EXTENSIVE ALBUM OF OVER TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY-FIVE PHOTOGRAPHS DOCUMENTING A FOUR-MONTH AMERICAN MILITARY TOUR IN JAPAN DURING THE OCCUPATION AND THE VOYAGE HOME TO SAN DIEGO, SEPTEMBER 1945 TO JANUARY 1946]

      Nagasaki; Isahaya; Kumamoto; Sasebo, 1945. 277 photographs, mostly 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches, plus five Japanese newspapers and several other clippings. Folio. Black leatherette album, front board blind stamped and gilt tooled, plastic binding rings. Front hinge detached, corners lightly worn. Photos in silver corner mounts on black card supports with captions in white ink. Clear and well-composed images throughout. Very good. A significant and thorough visual record of the early occupation of Japan in Nagasaki, Isahaya, Kumamoto, and Sasebo by the U.S. 2nd Marine Division during the last months of 1945, taken and compiled by a member of the unit, Edmond Catrow. Elements of the 2nd Marine Division participated in the Japanese occupation from September 1945 to July 1946. This album is remarkable for the level of skill in execution and the extent to which it documents a complete experience. The album begins with the embarkation of the 2nd Marine Division at Garapan Harbor in Saipan and continue with images of the convoy en route. Arriving in Nagasaki, Catrow was met with abandoned and destroyed Japanese ships and the skeletal remains of the Mitsubishi factory in the harbor. The photos from Nagasaki itself show to the destruction of the atomic bomb, and document street scenes and some of the few remaining buildings, such as the train station. There are also several pictures of the Isahaya airfield, including a number of Japanese airplanes. After Nagasaki, Catrow moved to Kumamoto where he was assigned to a Military Police company. His photos include pictures of Japanese soldiers still in uniform, numerous images of post-war life in Japan and military life at the barracks and in town for the American occupation forces, and well as a number shots of military duties and activities. During this time, Catrow apparently provided photos for the local newspaper, the Kumamoto Nichinichi Shimsun, of which five examples containing his work are tipped into the rear of this album, which also contains a picture of Catrow in front of the newspaper office. A translation of one of the articles states that, "Catro-San... keeps a sharp eye on the city as he patrols on his jeep, but he casts another 'cultural eye' on what happens around him." After a weekend leave at Mt. Aso, which is documented in twelve photographs, Catrow left Kumamoto for Sasebo, whence he was due to return to the United States. The images there concentrate on the harbor and several Japanese and American vessels, and the rest of the album is devoted to the voyage home to San Diego, including an organized wrestling match and the celebration of Christmas aboard the ship. Catrow's arrival in California is well documented, and the final images of the album are at Camp Pendleton, where he stayed while awaiting his discharge. A unique, fascinating, and complete document of a vital period in the immediate aftermath of the destruction of Nagasaki and the surrender of Japan, recorded and compiled by a talented amateur photographer and active participant in events.

        1945 ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY ANNA & KING OF SIAM Presentation Copy to HERBERT RYMAN

      1945 - ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM. SCREENPLAY by TALBOT JENNINGS. PRESENTATION COPY to HERBERT RYMAN, the Great Disney Imagineer. Handwritten in pencil on the front cover is: "to herbert Ryman / July 7, '45". I don't know who presented this copy to Ryman, whether it was Talbot or?? Carbon typescript. Paper Covers, bound with 2 brass brackets, 8.5x11", printed on one side only (rectos), pages numbered in three parts - 87, 74 and 32 pages (193 total pages). Cover has a typed title and author. The script does not have a printed date, but the written presentation on the cover is dated July 7, 1945, and clearly this is a draft that was written prior to Sally Benson being brought on as a co-writer, so early 1945 is most likely the date of this version of the film script. CONDITION: The covers are very worn, the edges have chips, tears and creases, the covers have some stiff creases and lighter creases from handling, nonetheless the covers are still doing their job well, and the typed titling and written presentation on the front cover are bright and fully legible. Internally, the title page has torn from its upper bracket, is coming loose, and has numerous creases; the next couple of pages have a few crease but are still sturdy and in place; all the pages are lightly toned / browned with age; otherwise the pages are just lightly used and still complete, bright, clean and unmarked. A VERY RARE EARLY DRAFT of ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM with the GREAT ASSOCIATION to HERBERT RYMAN. You can read about Talbot Jennings on Wikipedia and about Herbert Ryman on Wikipedia and many other online sites. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Plotnov, made in (August?) 1945.Officers watching air display and parachute landings?Glory to the masters of the high sky,To the brave commanders of military exploits:To the valiant pilots, Stalin?s falconsTo the proud heroes, to the soldierconquerors.??Author: A. Zharov. Artist: A. Plotnov. Dimensions: 159 x 86,5 cm.The major role in Soviet poster art in the war was played by the TASS Windows. They were large, brightly coloured, hand-painted posters, stencilled and produced in runs of up to 1000 copies. They usually were accompanied by a didactic text or often quite lengthy poem. They were the direct descendants of the comparable ROSTA Windows of the Civil War period, so-called because they were displayed in the empty shop-windows of that period. Like ROSTA, TASS was the official Soviet telegraphic agency of the day, and the purpose of the association of this propaganda effort with the agency was both to provide a continuing visual chronicle of the war and to respond immediately, often within hours to the latest telegrams of TASS. M M Chermnykh, who had initiated the ROSTA Windows, also took the lead in the 1941 project. On 24 June the organisational committee of the Union of Soviet Artists established the TASS Window collective and the first poster appeared already on 27 June 1941. The Windows were numbered through to no. 1485 in June 1945. About 1250 were made in the original manner with stencils during the war itself.The theme and the text of each TASS Window were agreed with the leader of the collective, and ultimately with the agreement of TASS. TASS was the official news agency for dissemination of Soviet news abroad and for reception of news from abroad and consequently was strictly controlled by the Party. Most posters were completed and reproduced within 24 hours, the team working in three shifts. After the artist had completed the drawing and painting of the illustration, the poster was cut up into sections and stencils were cut out appropriate to each colour used in the composition. The most elaborate posters used up to 60 stencils. The stencils were then passed to the copy room where each section was copied on a lithographic machine in waterproof oil colours, initially in very few copies but eventually in up to 1000 copies. When all the colours had been applied to each stencilled section, they had to be glued together to make the completed poster and the text was added in a separate operation.The Hallward Library of the University of Nottingham holds a large collection of TASS Posters. For more information, the collection is described in detail here.Price: ?3.000,- (incl. frame, excl. VAT/BTW).

        1945 ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY ANNA & KING OF SIAM Presentation Copy to HERBERT RYMAN

      ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM. SCREENPLAY by TALBOT JENNINGS. PRESENTATION COPY to HERBERT RYMAN, the Great Disney Imagineer. Handwritten in pencil on the front cover is: "to herbert Ryman / July 7, '45". I don't know who presented this copy to Ryman, whether it was Talbot or?? Carbon typescript. Paper Covers, bound with 2 brass brackets, 8.5x11", printed on one side only (rectos), pages numbered in three parts - 87, 74 and 32 pages (193 total pages). Cover has a typed title and author. The script does not have a printed date, but the written presentation on the cover is dated July 7, 1945, and clearly this is a draft that was written prior to Sally Benson being brought on as a co-writer, so early 1945 is most likely the date of this version of the film script. CONDITION: The covers are very worn, the edges have chips, tears and creases, the covers have some stiff creases and lighter creases from handling, nonetheless the covers are still doing their job well, and the typed titling and written presentation on the front cover are bright and fully legible. Internally, the title page has torn from its upper bracket, is coming loose, and has numerous creases; the next couple of pages have a few crease but are still sturdy and in place; all the pages are lightly toned / browned with age; otherwise the pages are just lightly used and still complete, bright, clean and unmarked. A VERY RARE EARLY DRAFT of ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM with the GREAT ASSOCIATION to HERBERT RYMAN. You can read about Talbot Jennings on Wikipedia and about Herbert Ryman on Wikipedia and many other online sites. Good .

      Vollständige Ausgabe in 2 Original-Verlags-Handeinbänden der Zeit: feingenarbtes Ganzleder / GLdr / Leder im Format 16 x 21,5 cm mit Rückentitel und Deckel-Liniendekoration in Goldprägung sowie Kopfgoldschnitt, beide Bände mit jeweils ganzseitiger Frontispiz-Fotoabbildung "Der Schirmherr des Hauses der Deutschen Kunst Adolf Hitler." Band 1 mit 143 (Text) + 72 (Abbildungen) Seiten, Band 2 mit 168 (Text) + 64 (Abbildungen) Seiten, die Fotoabbildungen jeweils auf Kunstdruckpapier, mit Verzeichnissen der ausgestellten Werke (Architektur, kunsthandwerkliche Gegenstände) und der Aussteller von kunsthandwerklichen Gegenständen (Adler / Berchtesgaden - Zwengauer Marie / München). - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        Lo que Sabía mi Loro. Una colección folklórica infantil reunida y ilustrada por.

      Isla , Litografía El Cromo, México 1945 - 1ª ed. 24x31. 56pp. sin numerar. Profusamente ilustrado en negro y color. Cartoné editorial. El libro tiene el lomo de tela, y se ha perdido buena parte del papel que recubría esta tela; las cubiertas tienen algunas huellas, con las esquinas algo golpeadas. En el interior hay algunas huellas de óxido, pero se notan más las huellas que han dejado la tinta de color de algunas de las imágenes en la página de enfrente. En conjunto, buen ejemplar de este raro libro infantil, sin formas ni garabatos infantiles. En los últimos años han salido varias reediciones de este hermoso libro infantil tanto en México como en España, pero el WorldCat no recoge ningún ejemplar de esta primera edición. Hemos localizado un ejemplar en la biblioteca de la Residencia de Estudiantes, pero no figura en el catálogo de la Biblioteca Nacional de España, ni en el CCPB. El libro está publicado por la editorial Isla, de Manuel Altolaguirre, pero, como el texto entero está manuscrito y ricamente ilustrado a todo color, es probable que saliera de las prensas de Litografía El Cromo, y no de las del malagueño. Este es uno de los libros más raros de Moreno Villa y de la producción editorial de Manuel Altolaguirre. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        Record of the Technical Companies of the 40th County of London (G.L.C.C.) Battalion, Home Guard. 1942 – 194

      [London: , 1945]. [With:] Photographs of the Training and Operational Tasks carried out by the Technical Companies of the 40th County of London (G.L.C.C.) Battalion, Home Guard. 1942 – 1945. 2 volumes, folio and landscape folio. Original grey light card wrappers, ruled and lettered in black to front, volume 1 staple-bound, volume 2 with red cloth spine. 10 folding text-leaves printed on india paper; 17 mounted silver gelatin prints, of which 15 approx. 110 x 150 mm, and 2 of smaller dimensions. Text and prints rectos only. Volume 1 spine a little chipped, volume 2 wrappers slightly marked, extremities bumped, rear wrapper a little nicked and creased along top edge, inked number to margin of first leaf, light marginal toning to a few other leaves, the images never affected. Very good condition overall, the contents clean, the prints crisp and fresh. Fascinating mimeographed report on the Home Guard battalion formed by engineers from the Gas Light and Coke Company in 1942, with a volume of fine photographs. Rare, with no other copy traced in libraries or in commerce, except an ambiguous reference in the National Archives at Kew. After repair work from the Blitz eased off in the autumn of 1941, company engineers sought special permission from the War Office to form a "mobile Royal Engineer platoon based at Ilford, in which capacity they could be available to undertake specialist engineer tasks, subject to the prior claims of Civil Defence" (Introduction). Authority was granted in January 1942 and units were formed at Ilford, Westminster, Pound Lane, Seven Sisters, Goswell Road, and Heston. The report comprises a diary of events, summaries of field works, training, and inspections, letters of commendation and details of awards and social events. The photographs depict inspections by Arthur Smith and Charles Lloyd (GOC London District 1942-4 and 1944-7 respectively), bridge construction over the Roding, a Sten gun range at Chiswick, the demolition of various strong points to clear Heathrow airfield, and plans "for work carried out at Becher Street, Kensington, to demonstrate methods of placing groups of houses in a state of defence". "From the very beginning industrial concerns made a considerable contribution to the growth of a voluntary movement Â… The reliance upon industry did bring difficulties even if urban units invariably had greater access to convenient premises Â… Many of the original factory units were not incorporated into local battalions initially but allowed to remain separate with the result that large numbers of men were not fully utilised in local defence plans: their only concern was the defence of their own premises. Similarly, the public utility battalions clearly faced something of a conflict of interest in the event of an emergency and were generally organised on a regional basis unsuited to any active participation in local defence. It was not long before most factory units were integrated into local defence schemes" (Beckett, The Amateur Military Tradition 1558-1945, pp. 278-9).
