        Full Production Without War

      Princeton: Princeton University Press. 1946. First. First edition. Spotting on the boards and a small paper remnant adhered to the base of the spine from the jacket, as well as a pencil note from a bookseller dated in 1985 giving the provenance of the book, thus very good in very good dustwrapper with some small chips and tears at the extremities. Inscribed by the author: "To Susan Jenkins affectionately Harold Loeb." Jenkins was the wife of William Slater Brown, designer for the Provincetown Theatre, and a close friend of Eugene O'Neill's. Loeb's inscriptions are scarce. He was an important figure in Paris' expatriate community. He is also remembered in the literary world as the model for Jake Barnes' rival for the affection of Lady Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises, wherein his early kindnesses to Hemingway (using his influence with Horace Liveright to get In Our Time published) was repaid by being portrayed as Robert Cohn, the cowardly and especially "Jewish" villain. .

        Correspondence between bantamweight Packey O?Gatty and late 19th century referee and later ring judge Sam Austin revealing that the Marquis of Queensbury did not write the boxing rules that bear his name

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?Packey O?Gatty,? one page, 8? x 12.5?. New York, May 4, 1946. To Sam Austin, N.Y. State Athletic Commission, New York City. Usual folds, slight nick at upper left edge. On verso, in light pencil, is Austin?s reply, Autograph Letter Signed ?Sam C. Austin,? one page, 8? x 12.5?. Tuesday [May 7, 1946]. With the self-addressed stamped envelope O?Gatty enclosed, addressed by O?Gatty to: ?Packey O?Gatty / 265 Lafayette St. / New York City 12, N.Y.? Postmarked New York, May 9, 1946. O?Gatty has penned in the upper left: ?Sam C. Austin?s reply to me in reference to the Marquis of Queensberry writing the Boxing Rules.? Fine condition. From the Estate of Packey O?Gatty.Bantamweight Packey O?Gatty (1900-1966) boxed professionally from 1915-1928. Born in Italy as Pasquale Agati, Packey O?Gatty was known as the Speed Demon. O?Gatty?s record was 54 (46 KO) ?" 9 (5 KO) with 5 draws. Samuel C. Austin was the sporting editor of the ?Police Gazette? in the 1890s and refereed numerous boxing matches including World Featherweight and Lightweight Championship bouts. He was later a ringside judge.O?Gatty writes, in full, ?Some years back, I presume it was around 1921 ?" down at Feltman?s in Coney Island, sitting having some beer & hot dogs, were Jack MacAuliffe, Tom O?Rourke, Jimmy Twyford, my brother Jimmy O Gatty and me. A discussion came up about the Marquis of Queensberry and his boxing rules. In which MacAuliffe says to O?Rourke, ?Tom, my old pal Charley Mitchell once told me and John L. Sullivan that although the Marquis of Queensbury gets credit with writing the boxing rules, it really was a London sports writer by the name of Charles Chamberlain who actually wrote them?, ?Jack, when I took little George Dixon over to London in 1890 to fight Nunc Wallace for the Bantamweight championship, I was also told by Jim Mace that Charley Chamberlain wrote the Marquis of Queensberry Boxing Rules,? replied Tom O?Rourke. Knowing that you at one time was the Editor of the National Police Gazette, you are in a position to answer this one ?" as I don?t know of a better authority ?" have you ever heard or known it to be true? Thanking you for an early reply. Yours in sports.?On verso, Austin replies. In full, ?When I was in London in 1892 I talked about this with George Atkinson, the boxing editor of ?A Sporting Life? and he told me that when public boxing contests were first permitted in England the British Army boxing rules were used, but these were found to be inadequate to meet the many new angles that arose and it was decided to revise them to meet the new conditions. This was done and the old Army Rules were revised and rewritten by Charles Chamberlain, then the boxing editor of ?London Sportsman? who dedicated them to the Marquis of Queensbury who was an ex-Army boxer and a popular patron of the sport. Hope this answers your question!? In a postscript, Austin adds, ?It may be that Queensbury suggested some of the changes that were incorporated in the revision!?Accompanied by two original newspaper columns about the Marquis of Queensberry Rules."

      1946. Folio. Typed sheets, both ribbon and carbon bound in half calf and marbled papercovered boards. 118pp. Slight wear, near fine, possibly unfinished. Signed by the author on the front fly. An unpublished manuscript for a novel written in 1946. Like Mills's 1943 first published novel, The Choice, The Enemy is set in Italy. Mills was born in Griffin, Georgia and studied sporadically at the Universities of Virginia, North Carolina, and Florence (Italy), as well as at an Atlanta college. The manuscript shows numerous corrections, deletions, and additions on nearly every page, along with some cutting and pasting by the author.

        Blue Boy [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY: Viking. 1946. The first American edition of this novel by Giono, a writer whom Miller had come to admire while in France and whom he had long worked to get published in the U.S. This copy is inscribed by Miller to his muse and former wife, June: "For June/ from/ Henry, Lepska & Val/ Xmas 1947." Lepska was Janina Martha Lepska Miller, Henry's third wife, and Val was their daughter Valentin, who was born in October of 1945 and was named after Lepska's father and Henry's grandfather, who shared the same first name. June and Henry had not been in touch for several years at this point, but she had recently contacted him and was destitute. He arranged for a friend to send her some money (he was still broke in the U.S.; his books had sold well in France and he had a substantial amount of money there but no way, under postwar regulations, to get it out of the country). His renewed contact with June, however, sparked his getting back to work on the Rosy Crucifixion, which he saw as his masterpiece-to-be, but which had been languishing. The part he was about to embark on -- dealing with his time with June and Jean Kronski -- was full of painful memories that Miller would have to relive in order to write it. The contact with June -- with whom he maintained contact thereafter -- allowed him to revisit that time and those experiences, and to finally bring to fruition the long-contemplated work. The cloth is heavily and unevenly faded; corners bumped; a very good copy, lacking the dust jacket. An excellent association copy, representing numerous strands of Miller's life over the prior two decades. First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care

      New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1946. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Benjamin Spock on the half title page. Near fine in the rare dust jacket which has some chips and tear to the front, spine and rear panel. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally scarce, especially in dust jacket and signed. The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care has sold over 50 million copies since its publication in 1946 making it the best-selling book of the twentieth century in America, aside from the Bible" (Maier, 2003). As a practicing pediatrician in the 1930s, Spock noticed that prevailing methods in pediatric care seemed cruel and ignored the emotional needs of the child. He wanted to explore the psychological reasons behind common problems seen during practices like breastfeeding and toilet training, in order to give less arbitrary advice to mothers who came to his practice. He thus became trained in psychoanalysis, emerging as the first pediatrician with a psychoanalytic background. Seeking useful ways to implement Freudian philosophy into child-rearing practices, Spock would try out his advice on patients and their mothers, continuously seeking their response. He contradicted contemporary norms in child care by supporting flexibility instead of rigidity and encouraging love for children by their parents.

        President Truman appoints his Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snyder as U.S. Governor of both the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development

      "Partly Printed Document Signed ?Harry S. Truman? as President, one page, 22.75? x 19?. Washington, D.C., July 5, 1946. Countersigned ?Dean Acheson? as Acting Secretary of State. Completed in calligraphy. Superb 3½-inch diameter Seal of the United States affixed at lower left. Fine condition.In full, ?Know ye, that reposing special trust and confidence in the Integrity, Prudence, and Ability of John W. Snyder, of Missouri, I have nominated, and, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, do appoint him United States Governor of the International Monetary Fund and United States Governor of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development for a term of five years, and do authorize and empower him to execute and fulfil the duties of that Office according to law, and to have and to hold the said Office, with all the powers and privileges thereunto of right appertaining, unto him the said John W. Snyder, subject to the conditions prescribed by law. In testimony whereof, I have caused these Letters to be made Patent, and the Seal of the United States to be hereunto affixed...?The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) were established at the close of World War II to help oversee the reconstruction of Europe and to prevent further conflict by helping poor third world countries develop economically. Countries who are members of the IMF are also members of the IBRD. Currently, each organization has 187 member nations.The IMF was conceived in July 1944 when representatives of 45 countries meeting in the town of Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, agreed on a framework for international economic cooperation, to be established after World War II ended. They believed that such a framework was necessary to avoid a repetition of the disastrous economic policies that had contributed to the Great Depression . The IMF came into formal existence in December 1945, when its first 29 member countries signed its Articles of Agreement. It began operations on March 1, 1947. Today, the IMF works to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.Founded in 1944 to help Europe recover from World War II, the IBRD commenced operations on June 25, 1946. It approved its first loan on May 9, 1947 ($250 million to France for postwar reconstruction). Today, IBDR is the part of the World Bank that works with middle-income and creditworthy poorer countries to promote sustainable, equitable and job-creating growth, reduce poverty and address issues of regional and global importance. Structured something like a cooperative, IBRD is owned and operated for the benefit of its member countries. John Wesley Snyder had a broad background in banking and business. He served as Manager of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation in St. Louis (1937-1940), Executive Vice President and Director, Defense Corporation (1940-1943), Assistant to the Director of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (1940-1944),Vice President of the First National Bank in St. Louis (1943-1945), Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director, Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of Treasury (1946-1953).Snyder?s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Harry S. Truman was Colonel of Field Artillery, United States Army Reserve Corps. Lieutenant Colonel John W. Snyder was in Col. Harry Truman?s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division.His task as Secretary of the Treasury was to establish a stable postwar economy. The main points of Secretary Snyder?s program were maintaining confidence in the credit of the Government, reducing the federal debt, and encouraging public thrift through investment in U.S. Savings Bonds. He also developed programs to promote greater efficiency within the Treasury Department, including a streamlining of the Internal Revenue Service, which assured a more impartial administration of tax laws, and a reform of the federal accounting system. Snyder served as Secretary of the Treasury until the end of the Truman Presidency.On January 16, 1953, four days before the end of his term, President Truman wrote Snyder, in part, ?I am sure that no President ever received more dependable advice and assistance than you have given me during the period of almost eight years since I called you back from St. Louis in April, 1945, to join my administration...? A photocopy of this letter is present."
