Members have included Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Rex Stout and Isaac Asimov.

        Pair of Original Portrait Photographs, signed.

      1946 1946 - 2 original photographs (195 x 143 mm), mounted on card and now window mounted side by side, framed and glazed. Card mounts a little browned, inscriptions slightly faded, the photographs in fine condition. Each photograph is signed on the mount, that of Clementine with the inscription, "To Frank Clarke with happy memories of our visit to America in the Winter & Spring of 1946." Co. Frank W. Clarke, a Canadian shipowner, had first met Churchill during the General Strike in 1926, when he had worked for him on the British Gazette. In 1943 Churchill had stayed with Clarke after the Quebec Conference and, when he was at his lowest ebb, physically exhausted from his Herculean efforts of the previous six years and psychologically prostrated by defeat in the Election, he was delighted to be offered the opportunity to stay at Clarke's Miami Beach estate for the Winter. Interviewed by the Press on his arrival, and asked to say "just ten words", he settled on the formula, "The great pleasure I feel in enjoying the genial sunshine of Miami Beach." The restorative powers of the Floridian climate are well-attested to by the fact that is was during his stay with Clarke that Churchill began work on the Fulton Speech, his most powerful and important as Leader of the Opposition, a controversial statement of the post-War status quo, the public declaration of the Cold War and a call for close Anglo-American co-operation as a guarantee for future World security.

        [Cover title]: Hara Takashi Diary

      [Tokyo: General Headquarters Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers. 1946?]. Carbon typescript, clasp-bound into yellow wrappers re-used from the General Headquarters Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (SCAP). 84 leaves, printed rectos only. Modest age-toning and a faint spot on the wrappers, very good. Text in English. Undated, some indication that it might be late in 1946, but that is inconclusive. Hara Takashi was Prime Minister of Japan from 1918, following the resignation of Terauchi Masatake in the wake of the Race Riots of 1918, until his assassination in 1921 at the hands of a right wing ultra nationalist. He was the first commoner to become Prime Minister, and during his term of office Japan participated in the Paris Peace Conference and joined the League of Nations as a founding member. His voluminous diaries are considered one of the most accurate and important insights into that period of Japanese political history (including its relations to Imperially-controlled Korea), and equally important in exploring the political climate that eventually led up to the Japanese expansion that resulted in World War II. This appears to be an English transcription and abridgment of the diaries for the years of Takashi's Prime Ministership between 1918 and 1921, prepared for General Douglas MacArthur, the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers, presumably for the purpose of providing the Commander of occupied Japan with the aforementioned insights. The covers are re-used from an index of SCAP Directives to the Imperial Japanese Government. The documents indexed end on 30 November 1946, but the covers could have been used at a later date. Takashi realized his massive diary would be of great historical worth, and prior to his assassination at age 65 he made provisions for it to be safeguarded and eventually made public. It was published in Japan in the 1960s over the course of many volumes, but with the exception of only a couple of very small and specific entries, the Hara Diary [hara nikki] has never been published in English. .

        Expanding Universe and the Origin of Elements

      American Institute of Physics, Lancaster PA 1946 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of George Gamow's paper marking the beginning of the Big Bang Model. "The German physicist Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker had postulated in 1938 that most elements were formed in explosions similar to that taking place in Lemaître's primeval atom, but he did not state clearly whether the birthplace was cosmological or stellar. The turning point came in 1946, when Gamow discussed quantitatively the role of nuclear processes in relativistic cosmologies. His brief 1946 paper on the expanding universe and the origin of elements marks the beginning of modern big bang theory" (Hetherington, Cosmology). Gamow, working with his graduate student Ralph Alpher, would spend the next two years developing his theory, culminating in the famous "Alpha-Beta-Gamma" paper (The Origin of Chemical Elements) of 1948. Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Gamow indication on the possibility to explain the observed chemical elements abundance-curve by assumption of unequilibrium process of elements formation during a limited interval of time. Birth of the Big Bang model." IN: The Physical Review, Vol. 70, Second Series, Numbers 7 and 8, October 1 and 15, 1946, pp. 572-3. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Institute of Physics, 1946.

        Ink & Blood A Book of Drawings by Arthur Szyk

      Limited ed. Full Leather. Very Good. Ink & Blood, A Book of Drawings by Arthur Szyk, with a Prefatory Text by Struthers Burt. New York: Heritage Press, 1946. SIGNED by Arthur Szyk. 74 color and black and white plates. Full black leather. New slipcase. Very Good Condition.& & LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED by Arthur Szyk. The leading political caricaturist of World War Two, Szyk was a hater of hate, a fact that becomes abundantly clear in this stunning fine art book. Ink & Blood is his personal response to German militarism and 19th century Chancellor Bismarck's emphasis on Blut und Eisen, that is, “Blood & Iron”.& & Frontispiece shows tipped-in self-portrait of Szyk at his desk, creating Nazi caricatures and trashing some in a garbage can. Most of the cartoons featured in book were drawn during the war with the hope that they ultimately would be published in a single volume, giving voice and expression to the ugly face of war. While the caricatures lampooning the Nazis of Germany as well as the Japanese were published in newspapers and magazines throughout WWII, they did not appear in book format until 1946, the year that Ink & Blood was dedicated as a “Peace Book”, not a “War Book.”& & The images remind us of the hideousness and horror of war, and the inner face of tyranny; of injustice and intolerance; and how difficult it is to make Peace rather than War.&

        NIGHTMARE ALLEY.

      Rinehart and Company, Inc., (1946). - First edition. Author's first book. Very lightly foxed on front and rear endpapers, else fine in dust jacket with light professional restoration to spine ends and top edge of rear panel. The source for the troubling 1947 noir film in which Tyrone Power portrayed a charismatic carnival hustler eventually done in by his own arrogance. Stanton Carlisle starts off as a small-time magician in a travelling show. The show's kindhearted mentalist teaches him the art of fortune telling, but Carlisle soon makes a bid for more elaborate cons. He ascends to high society parlors and becomes addicted to the idea of tricking the wealthy. How he ends up selling his act to a skeptical, high-powered industrialist is a study in both psychological savvy and moral deterioration. Cons always rely as much on intuition as on sleight-of-hand, so it's no surprise that Carlisle's downfall comes from his own lack of self-understanding. After manipulating so many people for so long, he ends up as the stooge for the one person who could outthink him: his therapist lover. An exceptional copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MATTHEW FLINDERS’ NARRATIVE OF HIS VOYAGE IN THE SCHOONER FRANCIS: 1798. Preceded and Followed by Notes on Flinders, Bass, The Wreck of the Sidney Cove, &c, By Geoffrey Rawson

      London: Golden Cockerel Press, 1946. First Edition. Number 56 of 100 numbered copies designed, produced and published by Chrestopher Sandford at the Golden Cockerel Press, London, on Arnold&#146;s mould-made paper in 16pt. Aldine Bembo type, with Centaur initials, designed by Bruce Rogers, and Lyons capitals, designed by Louis Perrin. Of the 750 copies produced, only 100 are bound in full green morocco as is this copy. With wood engravings by John Buckland Wright, including a full frontispiece illustration and numerous head and tail pieces throughout. One full page map. Small Folio, bound In the publisher&#146;s best full morocco binding, lettered in gilt between two raised bands on the spine, and with a gilt ship motif on the upper and lower covers, edges tooled in gilt, and gilt ruled turn-ins. t.e.g. Housed in an off-white linen covered slipcase. 100 pp., map. A fine copy, very lightly mellowed at the spine panel, the box with some light typical age mellowing. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF THIS GOLDEN COCKEREL GEM. &#147;The principal feature of this volume is the printing in full of Matthew Flinders&#146; narrative of his voyage in the schooner &#145;Francis&#146; in 1788...Flinders&#146; voyage in the &#145;Francis&#146; was but a minor incident in his long and varied career. He made so many important voyages, encountered so many desperate hazards and adventures, and, as the greatest navigator of his time, made so many important marine surveys... But this first printing of his own carefully written manuscript, as he left it, has its interest and its value in the literature of marine exploration.&#148;<br> &#145;...[T]he voyage and wreck of the &#145;Sydney Cove&#146; were the cause of very important developments in the early history of New South Wales. The voyage itself was a very early attempt to open up overseas trade with the newly-founded settlement. The wreck of the ship and the escape of part of the crew along the coast led to the discoveries of coal. The existence of the wreck was directly responsible for Flinders&#146; voyage in the &#145;Francis&#146;. The mission on which the &#145;Francis&#146; was bound, and the reasons for why Flonders was so anxious to take passage in her are amply explained in the text.&#146;<br> The notes on Flinders, Bass, the wreck of the &#145;Sidney Cove&#146;, etc. are significant and important additions to the body of the work here presented with John Buckland Wright&#146;s superb woodcut illustrations and the fine press work of the Golden Cockerel Press. This is a very pleasing copy of the rare first edition.

Actually it is the most complete and detailed work on printing in Mexico from 1539 to 1600 ever published.Condition:Edge wear to wrappers with some closed tears else a very good copy still unread.

        President Harry Truman Seeks Support For His Civil Rights Legislation

      - ÒOur goal should be the protection and security that can be given all our people under a civil rights program designed to meet the needs of our times.ÓHarry S. Truman was the first President of the United States in the 20th century to take action on civil rights because of moral imperative. In 1946, he named a PresidentÕs Committee on Civil Rights, which in late 1947 presented him with a report that was radical for its time. Truman embraced, rather than shyed away from, its contents. Just a few months later, in February 1948, in an election year when his position would surely cost him more votes than he could hope to gain, Truman sent the first Special Message to Congress to deal specifically with civil rights. He wrote Congress that his first goal Òis to secure fully our essential human rights. I am now presenting to the Congress my recommendations for legislation to carry us forward toward that goal.We shall not, however, finally achieve the ideals for which this Nation was founded so long as any American suffers discrimination as a result of his race, or religion, or color, or the land of origin of his forefathers.We cannot be satisfied until all our people have equal opportunities for jobs, for homes, for education, for health, and for political expression, and until all our people have equal protection under the law.Ó A Gallup poll indicated that a majority of the American people opposed TrumanÕs civil rights proposals. This was especially so in the South, where opposition arose that resulted in Strom Thurmond running for President as a Dixiecrat, with the aim of taking enough votes from Truman to make the south the swing bloc and be in a position to dictate civil rights policy. Congress balked at passing the measures Truman sought.On July 26, 1948, after forcing a pro-civil rights platform on a hesitating Democratic National Convention, Truman issued executive orders desegregating the armed forces and ending discrimination in the Federal work force. This was a major victory for civil rights advocates. In the election in November, Truman won but barely avoided finding the Dixiecrats as kingmakers, which would have derailed hopes for civil rights at the time. After his inauguration in 1949, Truman remained dedicated to his civil rights program; but while he could issue executive orders and make discrimination-free appointments (naming the first black Federal judge, William Hastie, that year), he was unable to get Congress to pass civil rights legislation. He began looking for support everywhere he could.Typed Letter Signed as President, Washington, March 20, 1949, to New York State Supreme Court judge Meier Steinbrink, chairman of the Anti-Defamation League of BÕnai BÕrith. That organization had taken a strong civil rights stand and given Truman an award for promoting democracy. ÒI am sincerely grateful to have been selected as the recipient of the AmericaÕs Democratic Legacy Award, given annually by your distinguished organization.I am aware of the vigorous educational program and the practical efforts by your organization to foster an understanding of democratic rights and responsibilities. Your definition of AmericaÕs democratic legacy is admirable. It is indeed a force in the hearts and minds of the people. Our goal should be the protection and security that can be given all our people under a civil rights program designed to meet the needs of our times. Such a program I have placed before Congress.In the effort to have it translated into law, I shall look forward to the support of organizations such as yours.ÓTruman never did manage to get a civil rights program through Congress, though his Supreme Court appointees began making important rulings finding that the Òseparate but equalÓ premise of segregation was a farce and thus chipping away at segregation itself. Shortly before leaving office, TrumanÕs Justice Department filed an amicus brief in Brown vs Board of Education, advocating an end to segregation in schools. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Etching from Alternance.

      (N.p. Le Gerbier 1946) - One of 340 copies. Color etching measuring 7 3/4 by 6 1/2 inches by Marie Laurencin, a contemporary of Picasso and Braque, depicting an angel with a small guitar in her lap. Although Laurencin was one of a few women artists of the time to experiment with Cubist ideas, her focus on female subjects is often viewed as a response to Cubism's masculine modernism. This etching is from the book Alternance, a collection of works by leading writers and artists after World War II that includes Jean Cocteau, Paul Eluard, and Henri Matisse. Matted and framed in an antique-style carved wooden frame by Heydenryk in New York. The whole measures 14 by 13 inches.
