        [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. .

        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.

        Bound Group of Eight Manuscript Poems

      N.p.: N.P., (c. 1946). Octavo. (8)ff. A manuscript poetry chapbook hand-made by Robert Frost and inscribed by the poet with the dedication, "A Preview / for Nita and Doc / from / R. F. / After a good Bread Loaf / 1946." "Doc" refers to Frost&#39;s friend Reginald Cook, a Middlebury professor who was the director of the Bread Loaf School of English for many years, beginning in 1946. Frost met Cook in the mid 1920s, and they remained friends until the poet&#39;s death in 1963. Cook kept written records of his conversations with Frost and transcribed his lectures, and published the book Dimensions of Robert Frost in 1958. This collection of poems was presented to Cook and his wife after his first session as director. The eight verses copied in Frost&#39;s hand are "To an Ancient," "Something to Hope For" (published as "Something for Hope"), "One Step Backward Taken," "Why Wait for Science," "But He Meant It" (re-titled "The Broken Drought"), "The Courage to Be New," "A Mood Apart"; and "Bravado." These were indeed a preview of some of Frost&#39;s new poems, all of which would be published in his 1947 collection Steeple Bush. Apart from the changes of title, most of the poems appear in the chapbook exactly as they would in publication. However, in the chapbook, "Courage to Be New" is followed by a four line postscript, and four changes in wording were made to lines in "Something for Hope." These changes reveal slight shifts in sound and sense, showing how Frost continued to edit and refine his work. Very fine in side-stitched self-wrappers.

        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]

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1946 - Part one of Morris' groundbreaking photo-fiction trilogy depicts his native Nebraska as a depopulated world of dilapidated ruin and desolation Thomas Mann wrote to Morris: "What these courageous pictures show is the harsh beauty of ugliness, the romanticism of the commonplace, the poetry of the unpoetical."

        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 with engravings by John Buckland-Wright.

I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green. I even thought of scenting the paper with seaweed, and imagined clients commenting to each other: Strange thing about this book - it seems to bring a breath of the sea! The idea was humorously reported by my friend Robert Harling in Alphabet and Image, and I now hear that some advertisers are using my idea by scenting their paper suitably to obtain particular effects. The printing of John Buckland-Wright's magnificent engravings in green ink on gray-green paper was not entirely successful, as it diminished the essential brilliance obtained only by a contrast of full blacks on whites"" (Christopher Sandford, the printer, in Cockalorum, Bibliography of the Golden Cockerel Press, 170).

        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.

Etat satisfaisant (plusieurs fascicules frottés). La Revue "l'Apôtre de Marie", qui fait suite aux 3 tomes de la revue "Le Messager de la Société de Marie", laquelle fut interrompue par les expulsions de 1903, se consacre plus particulièrement à la présentation de l'oeuvre missionnaire des marianistes. "Echo des Oeuvres et des Missions de la Société de Marie" puis "Organes des Missions et des Oeuvres", elle propose un panorama tout à fait remarquable et passionnant des développements de ces missions dans le monde entier : par exemple au Mexique (Durango.), en Europe (Autriche, Espagne, Belgique, Italie, Suisse.), avec une prédilection pour l'Amérique et l'Asie. On remarque ainsi les nombreux articles consacrés aux missions d'Asie, celles de Chine et surtout aux missions du Japon (Urakami, Tokyo, .) ainsi qu'aux missions développées aux Etats-Unis (Dayton, Cleveland, Colombus, Erie, Chicago, Honolulu aux Iles Sandwich futur Hawaï, etc.). Les comptes-rendus de mission, ou les visites pastorales des supérieurs en Asie ou en Amérique sont souvent illustrés et font l'objet d'articles du plus grand intérêt.
