        Odezwa do Ludnosci M. Kielc!" (Appeal to the People of the City of Kielce)

      NP, Kielce 1946 - The sheet is a 15'' x 12 1/4" broadside printed and distributed on July 5th, immediately following the infamous Kielce Pogrom on July 4th 1946. The appeal for calm and peace in the city was called for by a named group of seven local individuals, each representing predominantly leftist political parties and organizations, hoping for an end to the violence that had been spreading throughout the city during the day. The signatories are Stanik Marian from Local Council of Trade Professionals, Kazimierz Kasterski president of the local Labor Party, Urbanowicz H. of the Polish Socialist Party, Josef Kalinowski of the Polish Workers Party, Ponieki Czeslaw, President of the Board of the People's Party, Podrygallo Stanislaw of the People's Party, and Dr. Winiarski of the Democratic Party.*The Kielc Pogrom occurred on July 4th 1946, and was the deadliest Polish pogrom in the post-W.W. II period, occurring little more than a year after the end of the war. Local police and citizens took part in an attack on Polish Jews who returned to Kielce after the Holocaust and had been living in a building administered by the Jewish Committee of Kielce Voivodeship. Incited by false reports, rumors of a kidnapped child, and stoked by still persistent blood-libel fears, a mob shot and beat over 40 Jews to death. The event caused outrage internationally, and has been seen as one of the determining factors in increased immigration of Polish Jews to Palestine at that time, through the aegis of the Bricha (Brycha) movement. Translation of the text:"Appeal to the Population of the City of Kielce!On July 4th 1946, events took place, caused by irresponsible elements, that stained the good name of [us] Poles, a nation known throughout the world for its tolerance. Irresponsible elements, taking advantage of crowds gathered by false rumors spread by bands hired by Polish gentry, wanted to commit a criminal assault on the Jewish population, that having barely survived the gehenna of the hitlerite hell, wanted to find shelter in our city. There are wounded and killed. This stains our whole polish nation in the eyes of the outside world and of the future generations. It adds one more idea of infamy to all the crimes committed by the [true] organizers from the camp of the reactionary Polish of the ONZ gentry. The cooperative committee of six political parties wants first of all, to condemn the organizers of these events. The cooperative committee, in the name of humanity, in the name of Polish cultural achievements, in the name of the Polish history, appeals to the populace of the city of Kielce to be peaceful and dignified. At the same time, the cooperative committee of the six political parties, assures that the events will be carefully investigated by a citizen organization and the state as well. Results of the investigation will be publicly announced so that all citizens can know the truth. We appeal to the common sense of the people of the city of Kielce, in the name of the innocent blood that colored the streets of Kielce, to maintain peace and not listen to the elements that want to take advantage by encouraging hate of fellow man and interfere in the rebuilding of Polish life."Text in Polish. Paper yellowed from age-toning, and with some spotting. Three small holes and light creasing to the broadside. The paper has been stored folded and has horizontal creasing as a result. Small tape on verso. Paper with a 1/2" tear to the upper right corner, a 2 1/2" closed tear at the left side of the sheet, and some additional closed tears along edges. * See "Kielce - July 4, 1946: Background, Context and Events," page 123.

        Lincoln's Gettysburg Speech. Together with two TLs from Bernhardt Wall to Natalie Williams and a copy of the Kingsport Press Addresses of Abraham Lincoln

      Sierra Madre, CA: Bernhardt Wall, 1946. 34pp. Copy number one of 200 copies, signed by Wall, who etched the entirety of this book, including the text and illustrations, and printed and bound the edition. The book is printed in several colors of ink on a variety of papers and includes numerous illustrations of Lincoln and historical elements around his famous Gettysburg speech. The book is accompanied by two letters from Wall to his close friend Natalie Williams, in their original envelopes. Lincoln's Gettysburg Speech and Addresses of Abraham Lincoln, published by the Kingsport Press in 1929, are referenced in the letters and were included in the envelopes when they were mailed. The first letter, 2ff., dated September 25, 1939, discusses Wall's recent marriage (his second) to a widow, Doris Morey. He talks about his reasons for remarrying and how Doris had helped him in his home and work. He gives his thoughts on the progress of his Following Abraham Lincoln series, and, in a handwritten postscript, he mentions that Dard Hunter had been to visit after MIT had bought his old mill. He closes the letter by gifting a copy of the Kingsport Press Addresses of Abraham Lincoln to Williams, as he was in the process of dispersing his book collection. The book contains a dated gift inscription from Wall to Williams on the front free endpaper. The second letter, 1f., is dated July 5, 1946. Wall gifts copy number one of Lincoln's Gettysburg Speech to Williams and talks about it and its predecessor's unexpected popularity. He goes on to chat about Williams's and his families, writing, "And nearly all of your boys are back from the wars. That's something worth being thankful for, eh? Our boy says he's going to be married in August. He has never told us... The G Is are a queer lot. What the war has done to them cannot be described satisfactorily." Both letters are printed with an etching along with the typewritten text, the first announcing that Wall and his new wife would be at home in Lime Rock, Connecticut after October 1st, and the second acting as a letterhead illustrated with a cowboy on a horse. Aside from fold lines and offsetting on one page from the Kingsport Lincoln, the letters are in fine condition. The two enclosed books are sparkling copies. A fascinating archive from an important miniature book artist. (Lincoln's Gettysburg Address measures 1 7/8 by 1 3/8; 47x35mm. Addresses by Abraham Lincoln measures 7/8 by 5/8; 21x16mm).

        The Iceman Cometh

      New York: Random House, , 1946. A Play. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in gilt on a red ground, top edge red. With the dust jacket, supplied. Spine very slightly faded; an excellent copy in the jacket, small chip to head of spine, a little rubbing to extremities. First edition, first printing. Rare presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Shirlee Weingarten on the front free endpaper: "To Shirlee Weingarten / with affection and gratitude / for all she has done since the / first typing job - all the kindness / in the many small things that only / the sensitive do, as the sensitive appreciate. / I have a guilty feeling I have not / been sufficiently appreciative at times, or have even / been downright rude & taking it for granted / you should light cigarettes for playwrights! I hope / I didn't. If I did, it wasn't meant." O'Neill had Parkinsons from 1943, and copies thus inscribed (at such painstaking, if barely legible, length) are consequently rare. The recipient seems from the inscription to have been O'Neill's amanuensis, making this a touching and close association.

        Chloe Marr.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1946. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in white. Spine rolled and faded, a little foxing to endpapers. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his son on the front free endpaper, "C.R.M., with all my love. A.A.M." Shortly after the book's publication, Milne wrote a letter to St John Ervine on 4 August 1946: "Our boy is with us, and gets demobilized next week; after which he goes back to Cambridge for a year, chiefly to give the world a little time in which to cool. Having been at Trieste for the last year, he takes a gloomy view of Stalin and Titto. So do I; and of most other people". This was Milne's first novel for 13 years, and, though it would be his last, it was well-received: "'The Old Enchanter has done it again,' one of the American papers said. [There was] a general feeling that Milne had produced something rather original, certainly something quite different from anything he had written before".

So all that I can say in here is 'thank the Lord I know it.' There are also humorous cartoon drawings of animals and silly looking men and caricatures as well as fairy tale characters such as the Goose Girl and Repunzel. A beautifully illustrated volume with intriguing representations of friendships and life in 1920s England.

        David Ben-Gurion Signed Photograph.

      Black and white photograph of David Ben-Gurion seated with a book on his lap. Signed and dated in Hebrew "David Ben-Gurion 14.5.71." The verso bears a "State of Israel, Government Press Office" stamp. The photograph measures 6 inches by 8 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 14 inches by 16 inches. David Ben-Gurion was the primary founder of the State of Israel and the first Prime Minister of Israel. Ben-Gurion's passion for Zionism, which began early in life, led him to become a major Zionist leader and Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization in 1946. As head of the Jewish Agency from 1935, and later president of the Jewish Agency Executive, he was the de facto leader of the Jewish community in Palestine, and largely led its struggle for an independent Jewish state in Mandatory Palestine. On 14 May 1948, he formally proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel, and was the first to sign the Israeli Declaration of Independence, which he had helped to write. Ben-Gurion led Israel during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and united the various Jewish militias into the Israel Defense Forces. Subsequently, he became known as "Israel's founding father."

        Jazz

      Paris: Imprimerie Moriamé, n.d. , c.1946. Sheet size: 53.5 × 39. cm. Coloured lithographic poster, Light toning, slight marginal browning, but overall very good. Offered floated in black conservation box-style frame with UV glass. Superb period poster advertizing the drum kits of Marcel Faivre, Rue de Montrueil, "specialiste du jazz moderne." Bold red title across the top with a sax overlating the initial "J." Central image of an immaculately dressed drummer in club-striped tie - employing matched grip, it should be noted - smilingly addressing himself to a bright yellow, very stylish and fairly modern kit, perhaps a little let down by the presence of a trap tray with tympani beaters and a couple of cow-bells on the top of the bass drum.

        A manual of operation for the automatic sequence controlled calculator

      Harvard University Press, Cambridge 1946 - [Aiken, Howard Hathaway (1900-1973) and Grace Murray Hopper (1906–92).] A manual of operation for the Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator by the staff of the Computation Laboratory. [16], 561 [3]pp. 17 numbered plates (including frontispiece), text illustrations. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1946. 268 x 200 mm. Original dark blue cloth, dust-jacket (skillfully repaired). Minor finger-soiling, but very good. From the library of computing pioneer Frank M. Verzuh (1918-2000), with his stamp on the front free endpaper. First Edition, in the Extremely Rare Dust-Jacket. This is the only copy of this work in dust-jacket that we have ever handled. The Harvard Mark I, also known as the IBM Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator, was the brainchild of Howard Aiken, who first conceived of building a powerful, large-scale calculating machine in 1935 while pursuing graduate studies in physics at Harvard University. In 1937, after Aiken had become a professor of applied mathematics at Harvard’s Graduate School of Engineering, he proposed his idea to a number of calculating-machine manufacturers, receiving several rejections before finally convincing IBM to undertake the project. Construction of the Mark I was completed in early 1943, and a year later the machine was dismantled and shipped to Harvard, where it became operational in May 1944. After the Mark I was set up it was immediately commandeered for war work by the United States Navy. Aiken, a commander in the United States Naval Reserve (USNR), was put in charge of the navy’s computation project, and he later joked that he was first naval officer ever to command a computer. One of Aiken’s staff was Lieutenant (later Admiral) Grace M. Hopper, a mathematician who, in her own words, had "never met a digit" until joining the Computation Laboratory; she would go on to become one of the most famous of the postwar computer pioneers, making fundamental contributions to the development of the first compilers. The operating manual for the Mark I calculator—published as Volume 1 of the Annals of the Computation Laboratory of Harvard University—was written largely by Hopper, who was the chief author of chapters 1–3 and the eight appendices following chapter 6. The Mark I was an electromechanical machine, based largely on existing IBM punched-card technology. It was the first programmable calculating machine to actually produce mathematical tables, fulfilling the dream of Charles Babbage originally set out in print in 1822. Aiken saw himself as Babbage’s intellectual successor, and he and Hopper placed the Harvard Mark I in its historical context in an excellent historical introduction to this technical manual. This copy is from the library of Frank M. Verzuh, an early pioneer in the computing field. "Frank M. Verzuh worked at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1940 until 1960, beginning as a research assistant in the Department of Electrical Engineering, earning his SM degree in 1946 and his SCD in 1952 and becoming the first Assistant Director of the Computation Center in 1956 . . . Before and during World War II he worked under Vannevar Bush on differential analyzers and the Rapid Arithmetic Machine. Together with other leading researchers he attended the renowned Moore School Lectures in 1946. His notes are the only remaining ones for some of those lectures" ("Dr. Frank Matthew Verzuh."
