Ray Bradbury
Sauk City, WI: See description. USA ONLY DARK CARNIVAL by Ray Bradbury. Arkham House, 1946 First edition. The author's first book. A fine book (former owner's book plate and inked date of acquisition on ffep) in a fine jacket with just a hint of rubbing at the crown of the spine panel. The red lettering on the spine is unfaded. The rubbing is accentuated by the digital photography. Housed in an archival cloth over boards, gold stamped leather panel clamshell case. An excellent copy of this book which, while not super scarce in lower grades is very difficult to find in this condition. The jacket was printed on a thicker, almost card paper stock and was trimmed slightly taller than the book making it difficult to find in fine shape. The mylar jacket protector was removed for photographing but is back on the book now. Priority postage in the USA ONLY is $10.00. I've listed several other nice books today.

Houston, TX: Self published, 1946. Self published, Houston, TX, 1946. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+ Condition/Good+. Illustrator: Mark Storm. Book Signed by Author. A collectible copy of a scarce Word War II unit history issued as "a limited signed edition because it was originally planned only to be printed for sale to Marsmen" (from the front flap). It is marked as copy 1347 and signed by the author on the limitation page at the front of the book. From the front flap: "'Marsmen' were the men of the Mars Task Force, a little publicized brigade which was organized in Burma in 1944, to fight jungles and Japs behind the enemy lines." "They story of the Marsmen might be the last of its kind in the annals of warfare. They trekked as Genghis Kahn's men did -- through heavy jungles and over precipitous mountain trails. Portage was by the strong back of determined men, Missouri mules and native horses." "The Mars Task Force was comprised on the Texas National Guard, 124th Cavalry (Horse, but dismounted), the 475th Infantry (remnants of Merrill's Marauders and 'casual' replacements), two mule-pack field artillery battalions, pack troops, portable surgical hospitals ('ported' by horses), etc." In addition to Storm's illustrations and maps, there are two leaves (4 pp.) of color plates on coated stock between the Introduction and Part I. There are brown spots in the outside edges of pages 2 and 3, which are the only spots that appear in the book. There is also an extensive 64 page collection of black and white photos printed on coated stock at the rear of the book. Size: … [Click Below for Full Description]

Presents as near fine. "[T]his is a strange film. In order to talk about it you have to consider the period during which it was shot. when many Americans allowed themselves to be influenced by a certain propaganda attempting to represent all of France as collaborationist. Therefore I did this film, which was not intended to be shown in France, but only in America, to suggest to Americans that daily life in an occupied country was not as easy as some people may have thought. I must say that the results were extraordinary, and I'm pleased." (Jean Renoir, Jean Renoir Interviews edited by Bert Cardullo, Jackson: 2005. p. 15). (#10031).

Robert K. Merton ( 1910-2003 )
1946-1998: Various Publishers An important collection of 14 separately titled items, 7 books and 7 offprints, spanning the years 1946-1998, all SIGNED AND INSCRIBED by Robert K. Merton (RKM) to his former student, friend, colleague and noted sociologist Thomas Gieryn. Robert K. Merton is considered to be a founding father of modern sociology and the founder of the sociology of science. In 1994 he became the first sociologist awarded the National Medal of Science. His contributions to the field include such ideas as focus groups, role models, self-fulfilling and self-defeating prophecy, reference groups, and unintended consequences. He was himself a role model, inspirational teacher,mentor and friend to a whole generation of sociologists, as evidenced by these 14 inscriptions. Thomas Gieryn, Rudy Professor of Sociology Emeritus at Indiana University, studied under RKM at Columbia University. He is known for his concept of "boundary work" which has been cited more than 6300 times since its 1983 introduction in the American Sociological Review (IU Dept. of Sociology). The 7 books, either solely authored or edited with others by RKM, are "Mass Persuasion: The Social Psychology of a War Bond Drive" (Harper & Bros., NY. 1946, later ptg.), "Varieties of Political Expression in Sociology" (U. of Chicago, 1972, essay by RKM), "Scienza, Tecnologia E Societa Nell' Inghilterra Del XVII Secolo" ( Franco Angeli Editore, Milano, 1975 ), "Contemporary Sociological Problems 4th Edition" (HBJ, NY, 1976), "The Socilogy of Science in Europe" ( S.I.U.

These books have become highly collectible among cocktail aficionados and culinary historians. He was born on Christmas Day in 1895 in Zellwood, Florida to Jane Paul Baker (1859-1916) and Charles Henry Baker Sr. (1848-1924). Both of his parents were from Pennsylvania.[3] He later attended Trinity College.[1] By 1918, he was working at Norton Abrasives as a grinder in Worcester, Massachusetts;[4] he later worked as a district sales manager.[5] He moved to New York City, where he worked as a magazine editor and submitted stories to small publications. In 1932, Baker met Pauline Elizabeth Paulsen, an heiress to the Paulsen mining fortune, on a world cruise where he had signed on as the cruise line's publicist. After they were married they had built for them an art deco house called Java Head in Coconut Grove, Florida in which they lived for thirty years. Baker spent much of his life traveling the world and chronicling food and drink recipes for magazines like Esquire, Town & Country, and Gourmet, for which he wrote a column during the 1940s called "Here's How". Baker collected many of those recipes in his two-volume set The Gentleman's Companion: Being … [Click Below for Full Description]

First page of carbon typescript treatment is a contract with Samuel Goldwyn Productions, Inc., signed and dated by Fuchs in holograph ink, with date illegible. Daniel Fuchs began his writing career in his mid-twenties with the novels "Summer in Williamsburg" (1934), "Homage to Blenholt" (1936), and "Low Company" (1937) (published in a single volume under the title "Three Novels," in 1965, and in a subsequent edition in 2006 as "The Brooklyn Novels," with an introduction by novelist Jonathan Lethem), as well as short stories and personal essays, primarily for The New Yorker. At the age of 26 Fuchs moved to Los Angeles to begin a career in screenwriting. Fuchs' films include Robert Siodmak's 1949 crime noir "Criss Cross," Elia Kazan's 1950 noir "Panic in the Streets," Joseph M. Newman's 1954 crime noir "The Human Jungle," and Charles Vidor's 1955 musical biopic of Ruth Etting "Love Me or Leave Me," which won Fuchs the Academy Award for Best Screenplay. He retired from screenwriting in the late 1950s and in 1971 published his short Hollywood novel "West of the Rockies" and in 1979 the collection of short stories "The Apathetic Bookie Joint," which won him the National Jewish Book Award in 1980. John Updike said of Fuchs, "Nobody else writes like Daniel Fuchs. I think of him as a natural - a poet who never had to strain after a poetic effect, a magician who made magic look almost too easy."

[World War II Photographica]
[Okinawa, 1946. Overall very good.. 363 original photographs, most 3.25 x 4.5 or 3.75 x 5 inches. Loose photos, some curling to approximately half of group. About 200 images neatly removed from previous album or other housing, with adhesive remnants on blank versos. Pencil annotations with dates and locations on a substantial minority of photographs. Occasional minor wear, some fading to several photos, but mostly clean, crisp images. A remarkable and large collection of over 360 vernacular photographs taken by an American soldier on Okinawa and several other outlying islands in the Amami and Tokara chains, following the final surrender of Japanese forces and the end of World War II. The images present here depict a wide array of subjects, including the destruction on Okinawa, the building of American military camps, cleanup and disarmament of Japanese military installations, remnants of local villages, and Japanese residents attempting to resume their lives. One of the most fascinating and extensive series of images present here documents the disarmament and deconstruction of Japanese island military installations, carried out by their own soldiers still in uniform. Numerous photographs depict soldiers carrying bombs, arms, and equipment out out bunkers and other installations being dismantled under the supervision of American forces. Many images incongruously depict American and Japanese officers deep in consultation, or mixed groups of enlisted men working or milling about together. Several shots show Japanese soldiers Japanese soldiers posed at stations in the bu … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is marked as copy 1347 and signed by the author on the limitation page at the front of the book. From the front flap: "'Marsmen' were the men of the Mars Task Force, a little publicized brigade which was organized in Burma in 1944, to fight jungles and Japs behind the enemy lines." "They story of the Marsmen might be the last of its kind in the annals of warfare. They trekked as Genghis Kahn's men did -- through heavy jungles and over precipitous mountain trails. Portage was by the strong back of determined men, Missouri mules and native horses." "The Mars Task Force was comprised on the Texas National Guard, 124th Cavalry (Horse, but dismounted), the 475th Infantry (remnants of Merrill's Marauders and 'casual' replacements), two mule-pack field artillery battalions, pack troops, portable surgical hospitals ('ported' by horses), etc." In addition to Storm's illustrations and maps, there are two leaves (4 pp.) of color plates on coated stock between the Introduction and Part I. There are brown spots in the outside edges of pages 2 and 3, which are the only spots that appear in the book.

GPO, [Washington, D.C, 1946. Collection of 23 gelatin silver images mounted on thick card. Images and mounts vary slightly in size, most images are approximately 4.5" x 3.5" on slightly larger cards. Each image is identified in the negative. Undated but certainly very nearly contemporary with the test. Near fine or better. The first image shows a map of the disposition of the ships for the Test, two show aerial views of the disposition, and the remaining 20 images are of the various ships that were used in the text; a few show more than one angle of the same ship. In July, 1946 the Navy gathered a group of obsolete American ships, as well as captured Japanese and German warships in order to test the atomic bomb against a fleet. This group of photographs was for the Able test held in July of 1946, the first of two tests. The Able Test was for an air dropped bomb; the Baker Test, launched against the remaining ships, was for an underwater based nuke. During the Test, the Japanese battleship Nagato, from which the Pearl Harbor attack had been directed was positioned near ground zero in order to guarantee being sunk, but the combination of the bomb missing the drop point and the battleship's stern-on orientation to the bomb protected her, and the symbolic sinking had to wait another three weeks until the Baker Test. The images here are exclusively of American ships that were used in the test. Nice documentation of the infamous Tests. [Attributes: First Edition]

It is accompanied by Patch's pilot's log, which has entries starting in April 1946 and ending in September 1973, with a laid-in note in rear. Eisenhower toured Alaska after the war to review the troops as the Cold War was ramping up. Alaska was an important bulwark against possible Soviet aggression at the time. Photographs from this trip can be found in the Cecil H. Kornegay Photography Collection held in Alaska's Digital Archive. A short snorter is a bank note signed by members of a group traveling or meeting together and used to memorialize the occasion. When departing, each person would sign the bill. When you next met them, you were to produce the note. If you could not show them, you owed them a drink or "snort." The tradition was started by bush pilots in Alaska in the 1920s and spread with the growth of aviation, culminating with the extensive use during WWII. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

It remains one of the classic works of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

Williams' work is more expressive of American sensibility, and more saturated with American speech and its rhythms, than any poet's since Whitman... He has entered the bloodstream of American poetry" (Hamilton, 584).
