Dobell's 'caricature' of Penton is also included. This copy is signed by Dobell (who was later knighted) on the verso frontispage. Apparently leather bound for presentation.

        LA POBLACION NEGRA DE MEXICO 1519-1810 THE BLACK POPULATION OF MEXICO

      While a string of books and articles were written in the 1920s and 30s onAfro-Mexicans, it was in the 1940s when the so-called birth of Afro-Mexicanhistorical studies began. The credit is usually given to the work of, GonzaloAguirre Beltr?n, whose La Poblaci?n Negra de M?xico (1946) has become thecornerstone of the field. Having been trained by Melville Herskovits atNorthwestern, Aguirre Beltr?n's book was the first to systematically employa methodology for examining the African roots of Mexico's population. Hisbook also offered a sweeping demographic analysis of the colonial blackpopulation, stressing the extent to which blacks could be found throughoutNew Spain. One of the book's main arguments took a cue from the MexicanRevolution. As revisionist as it was in giving space to Afro-Mexicans in thenation's history, La Poblaci?n Negra emphasized assimilation and hybridity,noting that the colonial Mexican caste system and its abolition during theIndependence era created superb circumstances for racial mixture. Apart from a few isolated regional pockets, Aguirre Beltr?n wrote thatAfro-Mexicans had eagerly and spontaneously blended into the broadernational population by the early years of Independence.It is important to stress that Aguirre Beltr?n's work, while pioneering,was not written in isolation. German Latorre (1920) had already started thedemographic work that proved foundational to the writings of AguirreBeltr?n. Carlos Basauri's (1943) ethnographic study of Mexico's blackpopulations proved influential to Aguirre Beltr?n's later writings. Lastly,Aguirre Beltr?n's decision to study Afro-Mexicans was not an idea heconceived of himself. Rather, he appears to have been prodded into theproject upon the suggestion of Manuel Gamio, one of the leading intellectualfigures of Mexico's Revolutionary period.The era of scholarship on Afro-Mexicans that stretched through the 1940s,50s, and early 60s can be categorized as one of gradual internationalization,as more scholars from outside of Mexico began paying closer attention theMexican case. Aguirre Beltr?n's study came at a particularly opportune timein this regard. It was published during the same year as Frank Tannenbaum'sSlave and Citizen (1946), which opened a series of debates that launched thecomparative slavery school.11 Through an increasingly internationalizedunderstanding of slave systems, scholars began trying to uncover the rootsof the "Negro problem" that had so beleaguered the United States, butwhich seemed largely resolved in Latin American societies. Tannenbaum'sthesis that Latin American slavery was qualitatively different than in NorthAmerica and the British colonies sent scores of scholars scurrying to prove(or disprove) his points.Aguirre Beltr?n's book, although engaged inconversation with a different historiography, emerged in the context of theTannenbaum debate as an important tome on Mexican slavery and LatinAmerican race relations, offering some support to the idealized, benignportrait of Latin American slave systems. The book was positioned alongsideother important classics that were written by nationalistically oriented scholarswho sought to affirm Latin American race mixture, such as Gilberto Freyrein Brazil, and to a lesser extent Fernando Ortiz in Cuba.12 The ramificationsof these early investigations into the condition of race within individual

        Panels For The Walls Of Heaven

      San Francisco: Bern Porter, 1946. First, Limited Edition. Apparently an out of series copy, as the rear panel does not include the hand-painted colophon seen on most other examples, and is not signed by Patchen. Possibly a trial copy; or Patchen might simply not have liked the dark, somewhat muddy image enough offer it for sale. It is easy to imagine a dejected Patchen not wanting to be bothered with "improving" the painting; Morgan states that Patchen so loathed the design and finished look of this title that he "refused to aid the book sales in any way" and remained enemies for years with Bern Porter, the publisher. Square octavo. Original cloth-backed boards; 67p. One of 150 special copies, with front and rear boards hand-painted by Patchen; this copy out of series, and possibly unfinished; at any rate a somewhat less compelling image than we are used to seeing on Patchen's painted books. Just slight rubbing to cloth spine, two small abrasions to board extremities; else a strong, unworn copy; lacking the original acetate jacket. MORGAN A12.

        The Inhabitants

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1946. FIRST EDITION. VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Large quarto. Unpaginated (principally illustrated with photographs and texts by Wright Morris. Original beige cloth with title embossed in large letters, unclipped original dust-jacket with some wear at extremities, thin white crease on cover. The first photo-novel about America's heartland in the 1930's and 1940's, with many strikingly simple and direct photographs that perfectly represent the time and place. The photographer writes: "I saw the American landscape crowded with ruins and believed myself chosen to record this history before it was gone." * Wright Morris is the creator of the "photo-text." In The Inhabitants, photographs were paired with fictional texts; he began the project in 1938 as he traveled through the East and was moved by artifacts from the past. To his surprise, Morris began writing short prose texts related to these images, and they began to combine with the images to form something greater than the two parts. * This body of work was the product of a Guggenheim Fellowhip (the second ever presented for photography), and allowed Morris to return to his native state of Nebraska to photograph the landscape and artifacts of the life he wanted the country to remember. "Like an archeologist, he focused not on people directly, but their artifacts -- objects (mostly made of wood) bearing their imprint" (Andrew Roth, The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the 20th Century). In a letter to the photographer, Thomas Mann wrote: "What these courageous pictures show is the harsh beauty of ugliness, the romanticism of the commonplace, the poetry of the unpoetical.

        Economics in One Lesson

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers,. Octavo. Publisher's blue cloth, spine titled in gilt, with the dust jacket. Spine ends and corners lightly rubbed. Dust jacket frayed at head and spine ends, with some chipping, rear panel darkened. A very good copy. First edition of a work which had a remarkable influence and success, not only in America. Endorsed by Hayek as "a brilliant performance... I know of no other modern book from which the intelligent layman can learn so much about the basic truths of economics in so short a time" (dust jacket blurb), Hazlitt's work, like that of his French predecessor Frédéric Bastiat, exposed the popular fallacies of his day. "A brilliant and pithy work first published in 1946, at a time of rampant statism at home and abroad, it taught millions the bad consequences of putting government in charge of economic life. College students across America and the world still use it and learn from it. It may be the most popular economics text ever written." (The Mises Institute website).

        World War II Japanese Chichi Jima War Crimes Archive - - Beheadings & Cannibalism

      United States Pacific Fleet: Commander Marianas, Guam 1946 - This is a collection of official documents from the War Crimes Trial of Lieutenant General Yoshio Tachibana, Vice Admiral Kunzio Mori, and twelve subordinates which was convened in August of 1946 at Headquarters, Commander Marianas by Rear Admiral C. A. Pownall. The Japanese officers and men were all accused of summarily executing eight of nine U.S. Navy aviators who were shot down over the island of Chichi Jima. After the senior Japanese army officer on the island, General Tachibana, declared that all of the men would be executed "to boost the fighting morale of the Japanese troops" the eight captured aviators were publicly bayoneted, beat to death with clubs, and/or beheaded. Following their death, two Japanese surgeons cut out the livers of four of the men and also removed parts of their thighs. These were presented to one of Tachibana's staff officers, Major Matoba, who had the livers grilled and the thighs made into sukiyaki as a meal to enrich the martial spirit of the island's leadership. After Japan's unconditional surrender, American forces occupied the island and were surprised to find no prisoners of war. Although the Japanese leadership initially attempted to hide the atrocity, many witnesses provided the truth and some of the perpetrators confessed. All but one of the defendants were found guilty to some degree, and three, including Tachiban and Matoba, were executed by hanging. Oh, the ninth downed aviator, the one who escaped, was George Herbert Walker Bush. His parachute landed off-shore and he managed to out-paddle pursuing Japanese in his inflatable survival raft until he was fortunately rescued by an American submarine, the USS Finback. The archive contains over 150 pages of mimeographed text that describes the grisly atrocities in detail. It includes 1) A summary sheet identifying all participants in the trial and showing their locations within the court room, 2) The convening document titled "Charges and Specifications - in the case of Lieutenant General Tachibana . . . [and all of the other defendents" 3) Two Arguments for the Prosecution by Lieutenants Field and Suss, 4) Six Arguments for the Accused by Commander Carlson, Lieutenant Commander Dickey, Mr. Ijichi, Mr. Toda, Mr. Ito, and Mr. Morikawa, and 5) An original court-room pencil sketch of Tachibana by "Hughes." For more information, see Sorties into Hell: The Hidden War on Chichi Jima by Chester G. Hearn and Flyboys: a True Story of Courage by James Bradley. These documents come from the estate of one of the court reporters who saved them after the trial.

These were presented to one of Tachibana's staff officers, Major Matoba, who had the livers grilled and the thighs made into sukiyaki as a meal to enrich the martial spirit of the island's leadership. After Japan's unconditional surrender, American forces occupied the island and were surprised to find no prisoners of war. Although the Japanese leadership initially attempted to hide the atrocity, many witnesses provided the truth and some of the perpetrators confessed. All but one of the defendants were found guilty to some degree, and three, including Tachiban and Matoba, were executed by hanging. Oh, the ninth downed aviator, the one who managed to escape was George Herbert Walker Bush. His parachute landed off-shore and he managed to out-paddle pursuing Japanese in his inflatable survival raft until he was fortunately rescued by an American submarine, the USS Finback. The archive contains over 150 pages of mimeographed text that describes the grisly atrocities in detail. It includes 1) A summary sheet identifying all participants in the trial and showing their locations within the court room, 2) The convening document titled "Charges and Specifications - in the case of Lieutenant General Tachibana . . . ." 3) Two Arguments for the Prosecution by Lieutenants Field and Suss, 4) Six Arguments for the Accused by Commander Carlson, Lieutenant Commander Dickey, Mr. Ijichi, Mr. Toda, Mr. Ito, and Mr. Morikawa, and 5) An original court-room pencil sketch of Tachibana by "Hughes." These documents come from the estate of Ms. Vivian Kilmer, one of the court reporters, who saved them after the trial.

If your friend, the South American poetess, still wishes to 'interview' me after she has read and understood it - fine and dandy; provided she'll heartily agree to [underlined] quote me (somewhere in the course of her radiotalk) as saying [underlined] exactly this and nothing else ?" Followed on a separate sheet by "individuality always was and always will be the one and only reality: I love it. What a loveless world calls 'publicity' is nothing but the disease of unreality; and I loathe it. If you ask me for an individual, I give you William Shakespeare. E.E. Cummings."[With:] One page Typed Letter, signed, from Cummings' wife, Marion Morehouse, written in 1934 during her and Cummings' stay in Tunisia at Baron Huene's villa at Hammamet, expressing disdain for the open homosexuality of the Tunisian men, "There isn't much to write about as we hardly ever leave our place. The people down here are terrible, with few exceptions. They're all queer and such queers you have never seen ?".

        APACHE. HAND-COLORED SPORTING ENGRAVING PRIVATELY PRINTED FOR WILLIAM WOODWARD BY FRANK J. LOWE, FORMERLY OF THE DERRYDALE PRESS

      [New York: Frank J. Lowe], 1946 - Martin Stainforth is regarded as Australia's leading horse painter, although he was an established artist in his native England before emigrating in 1908. In 1925 he went to America for an extended stay, during which time he painted a number of leading horses, including some of the William Woodward stable which were reproduced as prints by The Derrydale Press. He was noted for his painstaking efforts in making numerous working sketches and watercolors until he felt he had the image just right. States Mitchell: 'stainforth's detail and accuracy in likeness were very fine and very natural. He avoided the pitfalls of flatness and photographic stiffness so often found in this type of work". Printed for William Woodward, a continuation of the series originally begun by The Derrydale Press; when the Press closed in 1942, Frank J. Lowe, its vice- president and sales manager, continued the production of high-quality prints, including additional ones for presentation by Mr. Woodward to his friends First Issue. Image size 14 x 17 inches; with engraved legend and margins. Framed. Slight foxing to image and margin. Mitchell, British Equestrian Artists, pp. 407-08; Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, p. 61
