        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) TO RONALD DUNCAN REGARDING THE IMPENDING PUBLICATION OF HIS FIRST BOOK

      8 April 1946, New York - Exceptional two-page Autograph Letter of @435 words on two separate sheets completely in the hand of and SIGNED by Charles Olson to poet, editor, and librettist Ronald Duncan, a literary acquaintance of T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. In part: "I have had [T.S.] Eliot's regrets on 'our' mss, as you are gracious to call it. His letter crossed me from [Ezra] Pound urging him to publish. Eliot said he thought it ought to be published, but in America first. It looks now as though it will be. Reynal & Hitchcock plan to take it, with changes, and expansions in the second half. The fact is England has always been more hospitable to Melville, from his own books on. It would be luck if Eliot would consider. Pound said: Duncan will help. Will you please--and take my thanks? I am asking Eliot, if the new plan doesn't take, to let you have the mss. Do with it what you think best. It may well be that Eliot's doubts of an English audience may obtain for others as well. I should like to think not. But you are boss. I don't think when I wrote you last, I had read the Pisan Cantos. They are beautiful,and Pound last summer, after the torture of the 'Gorilla Cage,' had more power over his line than ever. He is fretting at Laughlin for not getting his Confucius out and not pushing the Cantos more, but he is generally in better spirits, has now the privilege of games[?] in the prison yard, and reads with ease." SIGNED "Charles Olson." Magnificent content. Normal creases from folding. Near Fine and a superb letter [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        "Fun Work, a Folk Song in a New Way" ("Vesela pratsia, narodnia pisen'ka na novyi lad"). Set of seven illustrated Ukrainian postcards, most likely printed in a Ukrainian Displaced Persons Camp in post-war Germany

      [Germany], 1946. Seven original postcards, printed in green and brown on card stock, with address sides blank, measuring ca. 10 × 14.5 cm. Edges lightly toned, else very good or better; each housed in protective mylar sleeve. A striking series of propaganda postcards, most likely issued by Ukrainian nationalists in a Displaced Persons (DP) Camp in post-war Germany. As was recently discovered, the illustrations are quite certainly based on a Ukrainian children's book by Okhrim Sudomora, entitled Fun Work, a Folk Song (Krakow and L'viv, 1944). It seems likely that Sudomora, or another Ukrainian artist, "transformed his harmless child's drawings into powerful anti-Soviet and anti-Nazi propaganda by changing a number of symbols, slogans, and texts to symbolize the Soviet and German regies" (Emil Allakhverdov, "Okhrim Sudomora's Anti-Soviet and Anti-Nazi postcards," Journal of the Rossica Society, no. 168). A series of paired animals thus symbolize both the Nazi and the Soviet regime: two bears thresh peas, whose husks are labeled Bulgaria, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania and so forth. Two roosters carry the victims of their "harvest" to a concentration camp. Two crows who have drunk the poison of "National-Bolshevism" are dancing and singing their leader's praises. The final image shows a sparrow sweeping away Nazi symbols against the background of a house in ruins. This, and the fact that the bird wears a helmet with the letter "A", may suggest that the postcards were indeed printed after the end of the war, in the American Zone of Germany. Regardless, as Allakhverdov notes, Sudomora--who had worked as an illustrator in Lviv and Kharkov during and shortly after the war, and about whom little else is known--was arrested for anti-Soviet activities in 1949 and received a twenty-five-year sentence. Whether this means Sudomora himself was involved in this "adaptation" of the images remains unclear. Regardless, the series stands as a remarkably daring attempt to visually capture the Ukrainian view on the two regimes. Not in KVK, OCLC, which only located a copy of the 1944 children's book by Sudomora at the University of Toronto.

        [ENGAGING ANNOTATED PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM RECORDING A MARINE CORPS RESERVIST'S TIME ON OCCUPIED OKINAWA AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL U.S. INVASION TOWARDS THE END OF WORLD WAR II]

      [Okinawa, Japan; Camp Pendleton, Ca.; Kinston, N.C.], 1946. 101 silver gelatin photographs, most 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches, some smaller. Oblong folio. Contemporary black leatherette photograph album, string-bound. Minor edge wear. Very good. An interesting collection of vernacular images from World War II Okinawa, documenting an American Marine Corps reservist's time on the Japanese island after the successful U.S. invasion in the Spring and Summer of 1945. He is identified simply as "Ronnie" in several photographs. The album was likely assembled by Ronnie's wife or girlfriend, as the first item is annotated "A Christmas card from my honey" and includes a greeting in manuscript from the soldier on the verso. Eighty-nine photos emanate from Okinawa, four from Camp Pendleton, and eight from Camp Lejeune in Kinston, N.C. and on the soldier's furlough at home (likely Florida). The photographs of Okinawa feature a wide variety of interesting subjects, including island views, abandoned Japanese bunkers, tombs, Shinto shrines, damaged Japanese armaments, "Korean teahouse girls - the type used by the Jap armies for entertainment purposes," Japanese natives washing clothes in the river, views of villages, "A native barber and his victim in the village of Ishikawa in northern Okinawa," "Native family of three enroute to a detention camp," "Jap dugout in the 'Suicide Cliff' area," "Japanese school children and teachers," "Native women bathing," "Remains of Jap 'Betty' pilot, Yontan Airstrip," marine and army cemetaries, "Ernie Pyle's grave," "Spot where Lt. Gen. Simon Bolivar Buckner was killed - June 18, 1945," and many more. The U.S. invasion of Okinawa began in April 1945, and lasted eighty-two days, ending on June 22. Immediately, the island became an important staging area for the planning of the U.S. invasion of mainland Japan. Ultimately, the invasion was not necessary after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in early August. Also taped-in are two Japanese yen bills and eight magazine excerpts featuring Okinawa scenes. Laid-in are three Florida newspapers detailing the U.S. Navy's invasion of Japan. A rare view of occupied Okinawa from an American Marine - itself a rare thing, as most albums of this type come from Army boys.

        Typescript:] Twenty Poems by Aragon. [in her holograph:] Translated by Frances Cornford.

      circa 1946 - COMPLETE TYPESCRIPT with various holograph corrections, largely typographical but with a handful of insertions and amendments to the translation, one pencil note glossing a pun in the original, pagination to Contents Page in translator's holograph as well as dedication to verso of title-page: 'These translations are dedicated to the memory of Jacques Raverat by FCC', and a note added at foot of Preface (which is signed in manuscript) regarding the previous appearance of a few of the translations in periodicals, pp. iv, 44 (rectos only), 4to, together in folder, light creasing to corners, good condition. An unpublished translation of a selection of poems from the three volumes of verse published by Aragon during the Second World War, undertaken with the approval of the author - as Cornford implies in her Preface - but floundering apparently due to the French publisher's part in the transaction. [With:] A 4pp. ALs from Frances Cornford to Daniel George, postmarked November 1944, expressing her enthusiasm for the project proposed - 'I shall feel proud if I'm allowed to be his translator'; she explains her slowness in responding as being down to flu and 'acute cooklessness'. [And:] 2 carbon copies of typed letters from Daniel George of Jonathan Cape in 1946 to Cornford regarding progress on the work - particularly the possibility of having Aragon contribute to the introductory material - as well as the carbon of a page of notes by the same regarding the translation.

In addition to original Ukrainian prose and lyric poetry, such as from the previously unpublished archive of Yevhen Malaniuk, much of which reflected the tribulations of the war era, it contains translations of works by Hemingway ("The Killers"), Friedrich Hölderlin, Petrarch, Federico Garcia Lorca, Karel Schulz and many others.

        Crystalline Enzymes. The Chemistry of Pepsin, Trypsin, and Bacteriophage

      First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Professor [Gemma Holmgrew ?] with the compliments of John H. Northrop". Northrop, together with Wendell Meredith Stanley, was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1946 "for their preparation of enzymes and virus proteins in a pure form". The award was also shared that year with James Batcheller Sumner, who had originally discovered that enzymes can be crystallised. Northrop's pioneering work "made possible detailed studies of the chemical nature of enzymes, and as chemists could not use well-defined enzyme preparations they were able to investigate the changes brought about by these substances in a far more systematic way than before and with far greater chances of success" (Nobel, the Man and His Prizes, p. 377). Books inscribed by Northrop are uncommon, and this is a particularly attractive copy of his key book, for which he was awarded the Daniel Giraud Elliot Medal by the National Academy of Sciences. New York: Columbia University Press, 1939. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Cloth lightly rubbed at the extremities. An excellent copy.

        A 1958-1962 Archive of the Centenary of the British Army's Physical Training Corps at Aldershot, spanning Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery's final years as Colonel Commandant, comprising two commemorative books signed by Montgomery, two holograph signed letters from Montgomery, an invitation bearing Montgomery's autograph, and a vintage photograph of Montgomery in Aldershot for the Centenary

      Aldershot - This archive centers on the Centenary of the British Army Physical Training Corps (A.P.T.C.) at Aldershot and one of its most famous sons, Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, Corps Commandant from 1946-1960. Spanning 1958 to 1962, the archive includes: two books signed by Montgomery, two holograph, signed letters from Montgomery, a signed note on the verso of an invitation, and an original photograph. The books are a 1960 Centenary publication about the A.P.T.C. and a 1960 Presentation of the Freedom of the Borough of Aldershot to the A.P.T.C. Both bindings feature the same marbled endpapers and the Corps&#146; gilt crossed swords device on the front cover. The Centenary is strikingly bound in full red morocco with an elaborate glassine jacket featuring a web motif and housed in a red cloth case lined with matching marbled paper. Profusely illustrated, the Centenary opens with a facsimile holograph Forward by Montgomery opposite his frontispiece portrait. Montgomery offers the volume as "an account of the development of physical training in our Army during the past hundred years." Affixed to the front free endpaper is a special printed plate hand addressed to "Major T. L. Fletcher | Secretary | Army Physical Training Corps Association" and signed "Montgomery of Alamein | F.M." above his printed title "Colonel Commandant Army Physical Training Corps". The Presentation book is bound in red cloth, the front free endpaper boldly signed by "Montgomery of Alamein | F.M." as well as thirteen other individuals, including T.L. Fletcher and Aldershot civic leaders. Condition of both books is exceptional. A 9 August 1958 holograph letter from Montgomery on personal letterhead from Trianon Palace Hotel, Versailles, conveys regrets for a Reunion event citing "The 13 and 14 September is my last week in NATO " and promising "Next Year, 1959, I will be with you." A red "WAR OFFICE" ink stamp is dated "12 AUG 1958" and ink notation from T. L. Fletcher at the lower right states that the letter is to be "Read out at The Reunion Dinner". A printed and autograph invitation to the 16 September 1961 "Corps Annual Reunion Dinner" is inked in red by Montgomery on the verso: "I regret it is not possible for me to attend. I will be in China in September.", and is signed "M of A | 15-7-61" with subsequent notation dated two days later by "Major Fletcher" at the upper left corner. The final piece of correspondence is an autograph note from Montgomery to the new Training Corps Commandant thanking him for a telegram regarding the Annual Reunion. This note is on "Isington Mill | Alton | Hampshire" (Montgomery&#146;s home) stationery, dated "17-9-62" and signed "Montgomery of Alamein". Purple ink stamped at the upper left reads: "ARMY SCHOOL OF | PHYSICAL TRAINING | 18 SEP 1963 | ALDERSHOT". A 13.75 x 8.5 cm photograph of Montgomery in dress uniform &#150; ostensibly in Aldershot for the 1960 Training Corps Centenary - is stamped on the verso "NATURAL FOTOS" with an "ALDERSHOT, HANTS" address. In 1854, the heathland of Aldershot became the site of the first permanent training camp for the British Army and has since remained the "Home of the British Army". Major T. L. Fletcher was an Army Physical Training Corps Master-at-Arms from 1939-1954 and served as Honorary Curator of the Army Physical Training Corps Museum. During fifty years in the British Army, Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein (1887-1976) became "the outstanding British field commander of the twentieth century." (ODNB) He earned fame in North Africa during the Second World War, later commanding Allied ground forces during the Normandy invasion. After the war he rose to Chief of the Imperial General Staff and retired in 1958 as NATO&#146;s deputy supreme commander. Lines of Aldershot barracks bear the names of great British military leaders. In April 1965 Montgomery was at Aldershot to formally open the "Montgomery lines" which are still in use.

      [Prague] 1946 - Quarto (26.5 × 19 cm). Full leather binding over two raised bands; spine and boards embossed; decorative endpapers; elaborate calligraphic title page, eighty leaves of heavy laid paper. Very good. A custom-bound book produced for Frantisek Haehnel, who owned and operated the Smichov publishing house of Vanek & Votava from 1907 through WWII. Contains signatures and inscriptions by some of the leading cultural figures of First Republic Czechoslovakia. A fantastic example of the Czech genre of memorial books, it features the signatures of figures such as Jaroslav Seifert, Vitezslav Nezval, Viktor Dyk, Felix Salda, Josef Hora, Alois Jirasek, Jiri Karasek, Karel Weis, Emanuel Lesehrad and others. The most evocative signatures are found on the first page of the register, however, the only page to feature two signatures. Tomas Masaryk, then President of Czechoslovakia, was the first to sign the book on February 9, 1928. Nearly seventeen years later, on November 7, 1945, six months after the end of the Nazi occupation and just two weeks after his inauguration as the first president of the Third Republic of Czechoslovakia, Edvard Benes, Tomas Masaryk's loyal deputy and longtime Foreign Minister, signed his name dutifully below.

      verso u. r. handschriftlich signiert "Tatsumi Orimoto", passepartouriert 55,6 x 45,2 cm (Bildmaß) Erster Teil einer ursprünglich zweiteiligen Arbeit aus Vorder- und Rückansicht. Die ganzfigurige, frontale Aufnahme der kleinen Frau irritiert und belustigt. Inmitten einer Straße auf einem Abflussdeckel steht sie in überdimensionalen Schuhen mit Gehstock in der rechten und Einkaufsbeutel in der linken Hand und blickt uns skeptisch an. Der Fotograf Tatsumi Orimoto, geb. 1946 in Kawasaki/Japan, widmet sich in seiner Serie "Art-Mama" seiner demenzkranken Mutter. Durch die Diskrepanz zwischen der kleinen, alten Frau und den absurd großen Schuhen zeigt er auf einfühlsame und humorvolle Weise die Traurigkeit und die Skurriliät der Krankheit und des Älterwerdens. Tatsumi Orimoto studierte am Institue of Art in Chicago und war 1972 Assistent von Nam June Paik, seit Ende der 70er-Jahre lebt und arbeitet er in Japan.
