        [Photo Album]: Baltimore Family Travels

      North Dakota, 1946. Very Good. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 8.5" x 12". Black textured cloth over stiff paper boards with "Photo Album" stamped in silver on the front board. Contains 147 black and white or sepia toned silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 3" x 5", with captions. Very good album with chips, tears, and spotting on the front board with very good photographs with some edgewear.A photo album kept by the Chiodi family of Baltimore between 1934 and 1946. The photographs are not strictly in chronological order but show the family working, at their family home, and on vacation through the mid-1930s and early 1940s. The album begins with a trip to Jamestown, North Dakota, where they had lived before relocating to Baltimore, with photos of family friends on their front porch, children in their Sunday best, and workers on the Northern Pacific Railroad. Following this there are photos of a sheep ranch, a farm in Edmond, North Dakota, and Jamestown State Hospital. Friends and family are seen throughout the album in a variety of portraits, candids, and photo strips. They visited upstate New York and Niagara Falls, went camping and hiking, and enjoyed leisurely boating. As the war began the photos start showing more men in uniform including a Navy seaman and a man, Ernest Chiodi, in an Army uniform who is later mentioned in a newspaper clipping as dying in Germany in 1944. "A member of Company I 395th Infantry, 99th Division, 'Ernie' proved himself one of the highest caliber servicemen."A nice collection of family photos including travel and war related images.

Zu seinen bevorzugten Motiven gehörten Landschaften, Stadtansichten, Marktplätze und Volksfeste, die er meist in Aquarell- oder Deckfarben ausführte. Seit 1910 entwickelte L. eine Vorliebe für biblische und mythologische Themen, die er bevorzugt in Öl- oder Temperafarben großformatig umsetzte (Die Arche Noah, 1910).

        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.

      Knopf, New York 1946 - Book has modest cover soiling, wear to head and heel of the spine, glue residue on the front fep thus very good minus. Dj chips, tears, soiling, price of $1.75. What makes this copy of interest is the letter from Hersey to the book's owner written the day after Victory in Europe: "Well, we all got that Victory we were waiting for. Now for the Japanese." Three months later Hiroshima occurred and Hersey would write the most powerful account of that fateful day - August 6, 1945. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.

      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".

        Girl's Autograph Album

      [No place] 1946 - Oblong octavo. Measuring 8.75" x 7.25". Full vellum album with gilt titles and page edges. Illustrated. Slightly bowed with rubbing on the boards, near fine. A beautifully bound and extensively illustrated autograph album of a girl identified only as "Clarice" with most of the entries dated between 1919 and 1920 and a few marked 1946. Throughout the nearly completed album are handwritten poems and elaborate illustrations, most are signed and dated, along with some items pasted in from cards and magazines to Clarice from her various acquaintances. The artwork, mostly pen and ink and watercolors, range in skill with most being quite good, depict detailed images of butterflies, women, and even Christchurch Priory in England. Poetry is also written out, a lot of it about war memories, "the past is a closed volume, the present an open book the future endless pages;" and of course the comedians, "I cannot paint, I cannot draw, and I am not a poet. 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.
