         Hiroshima.

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1946 - First edition of Hersey's classic work, which has sold over three million copies. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Debbie Keller John Hersey. Bookplate, near fine in a very good dust jacket with light wear. Jacket design by Warren Chappell. Uncommon signed and inscribed. Hiroshima is a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Hersey. It tells the stories of six survivors of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, covering a period of time immediately prior to and one year after the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945. "The quietest and the best of all the stories that have been written about the most spectacular explosion in the time of man" (New York Times Book Review). "John Hersey once described himself as a novelist of contemporary history In 1946 he visited Hiroshima, interviewed survivors of the first atomic bomb attack, and published the New Yorker article which changed him profoundly. In Hiroshima Hersey drew from the victims themselves the understanding of history that had eluded him as a war correspondent. The six Hiroshima residents told him how they had lived before the bomb struck, why they were not killed, and precisely how illness, exhaustion, and personal sorrow had qualified their survival" (Contemporary Novelists, 634).

         EXTRAORDINARY VERNACULAR PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM WITH OVER 265 IMAGES DOCUMENTING AN AMERICAN AIR FORCE OFFICER'S EXPERIENCES IN OCCUPIED JAPAN JUST AFTER WORLD WAR II].

      [Various locations, including Stillwater, Ok., Lubbock, Tx., Guam, and Japanese cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Kofu, Kobe, and Nikko. ca. 1943-1946]. - 277 silver-gelatin photographs in corner mounts. Oblong folio. Contemporary red leatherette photograph album, string- tied. A young soldier's record of his experiences in occupied Japan at the end of World War II. The photographer was likely an officer, given his proclivity of shooting the officer's clubs and quarters in various locations. His journey begins with training in Oklahoma and Texas in 1943 and 1944, then includes a brief stay in Guam in February 1946. These locations constitute the first ten photographs. The remaining 267 photographs document numerous aspects of the soldier's life across occupied Japan in 1946. The photographs are occasionally annotated, sometimes taken from elevation or from an aerial viewpoint, and depict a wide variety of subjects, including but not limited to the following: Japanese landscapes, military parades, the "71st Sig Shan Shin Bild 'O' mess," the American Embassy in Tokyo, the the Cabaret Mimatsu and other parts of the Ginza district of the city, the great Buddha of Kamakura, Osaka Palace, the Imperial Hotel and Electric Building in Tokyo, "Kofu-en Jap Operated Hotel," General MacArthur's headquarters, the "Diet Bldg" - home to the Japanese Congress, Koshein Stadium in Kobe, a cable car and tracks in Rokosan, "Mitsui GHQ Officers Club Open House," and numerous shots of Nikko shrines. Two photographs depict a building in Tokyo annotated "After Bombing" and then "Rebuilt." The photographer captures an abundance of Japanese citizens going about their lives on the streets - men, women, and children of all ages traveling, gathered together in commerce, and posing for the camera. He even takes the time to snap photos of a street vendor making the traditional Japanese dish of sukiyaki. Combining these everyday street scenes of Japanese people with the landscapes, buildings, and neighborhoods, this album constitutes a valuable record of literally street-level Japanese history just after World War II in a region rarely recorded in such detail.

         [Photo Album]: World War II Antiaircraft Battalion

      Camp Davis, North Carolina; Europe, 1946. Fair. Small oblong quarto measuring 6" x 10". String-tied stiff black paper. Contains 237 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 5" x 7" with some captions as well as some newspaper clippings and postcards. Front board lacking, page wear, fair only with chips, tears, and loose pages, with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by an unidentified soldier with the 115th and 134th Antiaircraft Battalions, often referred to as AAA, during World War II. The album begins with basic training in 1943 showing photographs of the other recruits in Camp Davis posing around the barracks in uniform, many holding guns and smiling at the camera. Once basic had finished they went on to Fort Bragg, North Carolina for antiaircraft gun training. Men are seen posing on motorcycles and at attention around the barracks. There is a section of photos that show men working in a sandbag trench with large antiaircraft guns as well as tanks. A few photos show planes and aerial views. 1943 saw the United States move to form a "number of high-tech mobile antiaircraft artillery" in response to the Luftwaffe's continued aerial assault throughout Europe. The new units, such as the one seen throughout this album, now combined large 90mm guns along with radar and electronic fire control computers for a more effective offensive.During the last year of the war the battalion was sent to Europe. They spent time in Belgium and Germany, which included the cities of Aachen, Stoblburg, Kassel, Gotha, Bonn, Wetzlar, Heilbronn, Magdenburg, and Laudenbach. These photos show the ruins of cities and men posing around foreign barracks. One photo shows a young man with his hair pulled up like devil horns, another shows a soldier holding the hand of a young child, possibly a refugee, and another shows an Army jeep parked next to a newly dug grave. One page of photos shows a man standing in the ruins of Helsa, Germany, a hamlet near Kassel. The group made their way to Nice, France where they stayed at the U.S.R.R.A., "United States Riviera Rest Area." The rest stations had been set up along the "war-deadened French Riviera" using the luxury hotels that had been abandoned due to hostilities to host "war weary soldiers." The U.S.R.R.A. was often referred to as "heaven" by the various G.I.s and was pronounced "the best thing the U.S. Army ever did." These pictures show the men with young women along the French coast with photos of beaches and palm trees. It also includes a cocktail menu from one of the Army sanctioned lounges simply named "Riveria." The end of the war was marked with an "Organization Day," the program for which is tipped into this album. Held in Wetzlar, Germany on June 11, 1945 it celebrated the 134th AAA Gun Battalion's efforts during the war. The program lists units, actions, and commendations. Also includes is a copy of the commendation sent out by General Timberlake which praised the "performance of duty in the Ardennes, Rhine, and Central German Campaigns."Following a page break, the final pages show a strange collection of German snapshots, which included uniformed German soldiers, most likely collected in various sites around Germany. There are several anti-German articles and poems most likely from the Stars and Stripes publication, as well as numerous postage stamps with Hitler on them. A group of which are used to make a "V" shape, most likely as a sign of "victory." One article reads, "All Germans Guilty," and under a photo of a young German boy it says, "he must be shown."An interesting collection of late World War II photography and articles from a unit that saw considerable action in France and Germany.

         Jerome Bosch (Hieronymus Bosch)

      Paris Pierre Tisne 1946 - First edition. An attractive book with numerous colour and black and white images of Bosch's work, as well as some pastiches, but probably chiefly of interest for the design / craft binding, which looks to be contemporaneous with the publication date and is a work of some skill and invention; full red leather with surreal inlaid illustrations and lettering intended as a homage to the book's subject. The book is firmly bound, the leather is slightly toned to the spine and there are minor marks and dents. The text block is slightly toned with minor marks, it is free from inscriptions. A tactile, visually appealing book, both internally and externally, which would make an excellent gift for medievalists and surrealists alike. [Attributes: First Edition]

         The Skylark of Space

      Buffalo Book Company, Providence 1946 - 1st edition (preceded only by the novel's appearance as a 3 part serial in Amazing Stories magazine). Smith's first book Just 500 copies were published (Hadley's 1947 edition is a reprint). Near fine in a very good dustjacket. Ref: Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-114, "The archetypal pulp space opera.". Although earlier snippets of science fiction, imaginary voyages, and futuristic military fiction, touched the concept of what is now called space opera, The Skylark of Space is the modern template, the first significant science fiction sub-genre development since H. G. Wells, and one of monumental effect, encompassing among its themes the vast interstellar stage, horrific alien civilizations (the despotic circumstance), and ongoing battles with arch-enemies possessing advanced technologies, laying the baseline for the likes of Asimov's Foundation, Herbert's Dune, Roddenberry's Star Trek, Lucas' Star Wars, and all those that followed (and will follow) in their wake.
