This report describes the unprecedented destruction caused by the dropping of two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August, 1945, summarizing the information available on damage to structures, injuries to personnel, morale effect, etc. The end result of years of planning and research by the scientists of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Manhattan Project, the full effects of the atomic bomb on a populated area were not understood at the time of its use. Accordingly, the Special Manhattan Engineer District Investigating Group was dispatched to Japan in September, 1945, in order to gather information on the level of physical devastation the bombings had caused. This report offers grim testimony as to the sheer destructive power of the atomic bombs through its photos of flattened and burnt out cityscapes.

1946. BOOK AND DUST JACKET FINE CONDITION. ******PRICE REDUCED $200****** Very Rare. Fine copy of Alcoholics Anonymous First Edition 10th Printing. Boards and binding are like new. Hard to believe this book is 73 Years Old! Even the normal yellowing is very minor. Pages are unmarked and there are none missing. The Original Dust Jacket is the finest I have ever seen from the mid forties with a small chip in the right front corner and only a few tiny chips overall otherwise--as pictured. Jacket has been carefully preserved in a mylar sleeve and seems to have been safely kept for decades. Doubtful that the book has ever been read. What an amazing gift this would make for an AA sponsor, friend or self. Now that many people cover their first editions with new reproduction jackets, you will be one of the few people to have your very own Jacket that looks so incredible because it is the real thing!! Also pay close attention to the fresh look the gilding has. Normally, in this year, the gilding is greatly worn or gone completely. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
