        Aaron Bohrod's America Its History.

      1946. 1946 - Color pictographic / pictorial map, 22 x 33 inches, linen backed with wooden dowels at upper and lower edge (contemporary with its publication date). Light wear to edges and a little soft creasing from being rolled; a stain on the linen backing does not affect the image. Overall very good condition. Plate 21 in Stephen Hornsby's "Picturing America"; Hornsby writes of it "Bohrod's sweeping and popular depiction of American history owes much to the murals he and other artists designed for the Treasury Department's Section of Fine Arts during the 1930s. John Brown's Slave Raids in Kansas set against a glowing sun create a powerful central image for the map."

        ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      Saginaw MI, 1946. Original handwritten three page letter by Roethke on his mother's printed letterhead. The letter is dated March 23, 1946, and addressed "Dear Hugh" in Roethke's signature green fountain pen ink. The text of the letter is personal and friendly, mentioning Roethke's favorite sport of tennis, "black market" tennis balls, Bennington College, "private questions about what goes on in Old Main, but they will keep . . . " (assuming reference to the Old Main building at Penn State where Roethke taught from 1936-1943). The printed letterhead reads "Mrs. Otto Theodore Roethke / 1805 Gratiot Avenue / Saginaw, Michigan" in black ink. Letters from Roethke are now quite uncommon and scarce in the market. Folded twice for mailing, else fine.

        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, 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.

        Hiroshima

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 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).

        Secret Session Speeches. Compiled by Charles Eade.

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1946 - Octavo. Original mid-blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, three vertical gilt rules to front cover. With the dust jacket. Jacket with closed-tears at head of spine and panels, smudge in margin of p. 81. A superior copy: clean, bright and tight. 16 plates from photographs. First UK edition, sole impression, originally published in America a month earlier. Presentation copy from Churchill to his literary agent Emery Reves, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Emery Reves from Winston S. Churchill - 1947". Secret Sessions Speeches is rarely encountered inscribed, or even signed, and this is a superb association copy. Emery Reves (1904-1981) had been instrumental in promoting Churchill's pre-War international profile by the world-wide syndication of many of his prophetic articles during the late 'thirties. Churchill biographer Jonathan Rose gives the background to their early association: "[At this time] Churchill was trying to disseminate his dissenting views as widely as possible, with the help of an indispensable agent. Emery Reves was a Hungarian Jew who in 1930 launched the Cooperation Press Service. Based in Berlin, he distributed articles by prominent politicians to publications outside their home countries. Within two years he had about a hundred political writers in his stable publishing them in 400 newspapers in 70 nations. 'Naturally the organization was rather profitable,' he recalled On 1 April 1933 Nazi stormtroopers attacked Jewish businesses throughout Germany, and Reves took the night train to Paris, where he opened a new office on the Champs-Eylsees. Reves was keen to recruit Churchill, and Austen Chamberlain set up a meeting on 25 February 1937 in Churchill's London flat at Morpeth Mansions. Having just emerged from his bath, Churchill was as skeptical as he was naked, so Reves handed him a fat folder of Austen's clippings. Promptly telephoning Lord Beaverbrook's office, Churchill was dismayed to learn that 'Chamberlain's articles are much more widely distributed than mine.' In June Churchill and Reves signed a contract, and the latter became the conduit for distributing Churchill's jeremiads against Hitler to Europe, the British Empire and the United States. A senior Foreign Office official urged Reves to stop &#150; for in fact he was enabling Churchill to run around Neville Chamberlain's media blockade, with some assistance from the latter's half-brother. 'He was really in the political doghouse,' Reves remembered. 'Through my service he got on the front pages of the newspapers in twenty-five languages, with up to a fifteen, even twenty million circulation'" (The Literary Churchill: Author, Reader, Actor, Yale 2015, pp. 257-58). Their association blossomed again after the War when Reves negotiated the sale of the US rights for The Second World War, and purchased the international rights himself, selling serialization to twenty-seven newspapers across the globe and securing book rights in eleven European countries. Churchill said of this feat, "I am sure that no one could have done it except Reves, who buzzed around the world for nearly a year making contracts." They subsequently worked closely together on the book itself, Reves having what Martin Gilbert has described as "considerable editorial input".
