        Archive]: British Liberation Army Electrician

      England, Belgium 1946 - An archive of 110 photographs, six diaries, two business cards, a fuel ration book, and a page of notes all housed in a small leather makeup case kept by a soldier electrician's wife during World War II. All items very good with curled edges on the photographs and some small tears and age toning.An archive of ephemera kept by an electrician, Arthur Charles Payne, serving with the British Liberation Army between 1943 and 1946. All the items were kept by his wife, "Kay (Kathleen)," after being sent the diaries and photos once they were completed and kept in a leather makeup case. The diaries begin in 1943 and are small daily "note-a-day" style books discussing the day to day of Payne's life in the army. Some of the diaries are dedicated to his wife and all of them request they be returned to his wife if found. Payne began his training at Bovington Camp in January of 1943 learning to repair tanks. The camp was used beginning in 1937 as a training facility for driving and maintenance. These entries discuss his early training as well as leaves taken, phone calls with Kay, and his daily life at the camp. A typical entry reads, "Practical test this morning. Disposal lecture 49.4%. 3rd class electrics recommended 2nd. Packing for my departure." An entry from March 1943 simply reads, "making arrangements for wedding" when he married Kay in London and they took a short honeymoon before he returned to his duties. The second diary continues into 1944 with similar entries discussing crashed planes, trips to the "pictures," and his work. A charming entry on September 5th reads, "Kathleen's birthday, my darling wife. Wherever I may be on this day I shall be thinking of her, loving her more and more -- happy birthday. Many happy returns of the day my pet -- I love you dearly." He was assigned to overseas duty in mid-1944 and the diary ends then with a note reading, "handing this diary over to my wife for safe keeping. If anything should happen to me all I have is her. I hope nothing will. I love her dearly, she is so sweet. May I come back for her sake. Love her, she does work too hard though. God bless her."A diary stamped "Agenda 1944" is hand titled "Souvenir of Watteren, Belgium British Liberation Army June 22nd 1944 to ---- West Yorkshire Regt 269 Forward Special Delivery Squadron." He begins, "our first sighting of France, smoldering buildings, some explosions from the shore, huge masses of ships on either side down the coast a little way battleships, bombarding shore batteries." Later he writes, "saw our first Jerry plane, heavy ack ack." Later he writes, "a dog fight overhead & ack ack fire, Jerry got away." Many of the entries discuss crashes, overhead dogfights, and the ever present ack ack fire. When he wasn't busy with the war he used his leisure time to go to the movies, write home, and play cards with other soldiers. Payne was in Belgium for the liberation and stayed through the rest of year and into 1945. Once the war was over Payne participated in the British Army of the Rhine which was involved in operations in occupied Germany. Most of the photographs featured here are from his time in Germany after the war which show uniformed men with Army equipment, refugees, and captured enemy equipment. Almost every photo is captioned in detail on the verso. Also included is a photograph of Kay encase in plastic with a dried four leaf clover, a lucky charm used by Payne during his tour of duty.An interesting collection of diaries and photographs detailing a British soldier's time during World War II.

        The Iceman Cometh

      New York: Random House 1946 - 8vo., blue cloth lettered in gilt; dust jacket, soiled with several inconsequential chips. First edition. (Atkinson A 35-I-1.a.) A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Justine Gallant -- with the deepest appreciation for her kindness and sympathy and infinite tact during my long illness. God bless you! Eugene O'Neill, April 1948," on the front endpaper. On the second front endpaper, Jason Robards, Jr., the legendary actor, penned: "Jason Robards, `The Iceman Cometh,' Circle in the Square, 1956." Below Robards's inscription, the actor E. G. Marshall added, "To J. Gallant, with pleasure E. G. Marshall." ------ For the last ten years of his life, O'Neill suffered from multiple health problems, notably depression, alcoholism, and a severe Parkinsons-like tremor in his hands. He would labor to write, his penmanship sometimes rather shaky, as was the case with this intimate inscription to Justine Gallant. Like O'Neill's other close friend, the restaurateur Barney Gallant, Justine was an ardent admirer, who cared deeply for the playwright's wellbeing. Gallant thought the world of E. G. Marshall and Jason Robards for helping to ensure O'Neill's legacy. ------ "The Iceman Cometh" premiered on Broadway at the Martin Beck Theatre on October 9, 1946, directed by Eddie Dowling. E. G. Marshall played Willie Oban, a Harvard Law School alumnus. Marshall had struck up a friendship with the playwright, claiming after their first meeting that he "had known O'Neill a thousand years." Marshall and other established actors, including Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift, would become original members of the Actors Studio. Perhaps Marshall's best known performance was in Sidney Lumet's 1957 courtroom drama "12 Angry Men." ------ An Off-Broadway production of "The Iceman Cometh," staged after O'Neill's death in 1956, featured Jason Robards as Hickey, the iconic philosophical salesman. Directed by José Quintero, the production, an unqualified success, established the play as a great modern tragedy. Robards revisited "The Iceman Cometh," starring in the acclaimed 1960 television film production, which earned him an Obie Award. He would portray Hickey in another Broadway revival also staged by Quintero in 1985. A powerful presentation copy with a distinguished provenance.

        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."

        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.

        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]
