        Original Typed Volume of Remembrances with 11 Original Watercolors.

      n.p. 1946-47, Halifax [Canada] - An autobiographical account of the childhood in Chester, England, of Charles Henry Kingsley-Baillie up until his father's death in 1897. Small octavo (). 55 pp. typewritten in 1946-47, on rectos only, with 11 additional watercolor paitings of local characters and buildings. Some manuscript corrections, foreword signed by the author, the pages contained in a contemporary small ring cloth binder, preserved in a contemporary card box with watercolor monogram IC [the author's sister Ivy Clifford] to upper cover. A charming labor of love and a very well executed piece.An interesting series of reminiscences by the third son of Edmund John Baillie, a successful nurseryman, centering on the three Chester houses the family lived in, all named Woodbine. Each of the successive Woodbines is illustrated by an original watercolor of great merit. The author remembers local characters, scenes and events as his family grew ever larger. His "father interested himself in several societies - the Chester Society of Natural Science, the Kingsley Memorial Society, the Ruskin Society, the Archaeological Society of Chester, and several others. He was most active in promoting the erection of the Grosvenor Museum in Chester, which was made possible by the generosity of the Duke of Westminster, who donated the building site, and started the fund with a cheque for £10,000". Charles also remembers an original watercolor by Ruskin given to his father by the artist which hung above his mother's desk, as well as other pictures and letters of Ruskin and "an immense brown and white decorative panel by Walter Crane". Among the other works owned was an immense picture by Dame Clara Knight and one of a Pomeranian dog "by an artist friend of father's - Arthur Boddington - a very strange man - and a confirmed agnostic. The picture was given to my mother by Boddington as a peace offering, after she and Arthur became involved in a heated argument over religion, (in which Boddington lost out), and mother ordered him to leave the house". The library at Woodbine housed 8,000 volumes, many of them very valuable. He remembers visits by Sir George Adam Smith, Walter Crane, Hugh Nisbet and Ira D. Sankey. He also describes a violent thrashing given him by his headmaster, and the ensuing showdown between his father and the headmaster and being pulled out of the school. Other family friends remembered include Dr Jaeger and Sir Isaac and Lady Pitman. The account ends with the death of his father who had been suffering from diabetes, "and I often wonder if he would have lived longer, if he had engaged a physician other than Dr Haynes Thomas, who was a homeopathist". The other watercolors are of memorable characters in Chester and one of the family dog, Old Jess. Charles moved to Canada, we know he was there by 1906, for an unknown reason and presumably died there.

        The Little Train

      Eyre & Spottiswoode [1946], London, n.d. - The first of Greene's children's books, although his name does not appear on the book or the dustwrapper. Dorothy Craigie, who illustrated the book, was a girlfriend of Greene's at the time and is credited with its authorship as well. Greene was keen that the book be published as a result of her efforts, and not, presumably, only because he was writing the text. Craigie, Greene and his brother later formed a Victorian detective fiction collection that they catalogued with John Carter under her married name of Dorothy Glover. An excellent copy in price-clipped dustwrapper - and uncommon thus. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Original b/w photograph on archival paper. Different formats. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Most of them titled by John Minihan verso. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Most of the photographs in this collection unframed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

(Wikipedia) Thomas Kennerly "Tom" Wolfe, Jr. (born March 2, 1931) is an American author and journalist, best known for his association and influence over the New Journalism literary movement in which literary techniques are used in objective even-handed journalism. Beginning his career as a reporter, he soon became one of the most culturally significant figures of the 1960s after the publication of books such as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (a highly experimental account of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters) and two collections of articles and essays, Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers and The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. His first novel, The Bonfire of the Vanities, released in 1987, was met with critical acclaim and was a great commercial success. He is also known, in recent years, for his spats and public disputes with other writers, including John Updike, Norman Mailer, and John Irving. (Wikipedia)

        The Gate Theatre - Beckett Festival 1991.

      Extra Large Original Photograph on archival paper. Image: 27 cm x 40,5 cm / Framed: 60 cm x 71 cm. From the private library of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed twice by John Minihan below the image. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men.

        The Road to Serfdom [Abridged Edition].

      London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd., 1946 - Octavo. Original white paper wrappers lettered in blue. Rear wrapper a little chipped at foot, spine very lightly rubbed. Light spotting and paper a little browned; a very good copy. Repricing sticker (3' 6 net rather than 2/6 net) to front wrapper. First abridged edition of Hayek's Road to Serfdom, originally published in 1944. "To this Preface of the original editon, published in March 1944, only a few words need be added in explanation of the present ABRIDGED EDITION. Although a cheap edition of the complete book has already been issued . many friends have urged on me the desirability of a shorter and still cheaper edition for those who can spare neither the time nor the money for the longer book. In addition, war-time restrictions still make it impossible fully to meet the demand for the complete version and by cutting the length of the book by about one-half, twice the number of copies can be produced from a given stock of paper. When, finally, a friend even offered to prepare for me the abridgement. I accepted . I hope that by the process of condensation the book has also become easier to read, though the problems with which it deals are inevitably difficult and for their adequate treatment the original book would have to be made much longer rather than shorter" (p. 8). See Cody & Ostrem B-6. Copac locates only 3 copies, at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and at the National Library of Wales. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Konzentrationslager Auschwitz: 6,500.000 Tote klagen an !

      Stern, Wien 1946 - Octavo. 39, [1]pp. Original illustrated wrappers with red lettering on front cover. Gripping account of the daily horrors and massacres committed by the Nazis at Auschwitz. This work is illustrated throughout with 13 b/w in-text photographic reproductions. Minor sunning and sporadic creasing along edges of wrappers. Pages slightly age-toned along edges. Text in German. Wrappers and interior in overall good condition. Laid in a two-page autograph letter signed by Paul Roman, an Auschwitz inmate. 6" x 8 3/4" , with information and address leaf on the integral leaf verso. Letter dated Auschwitz, Dec. 10, 1944. Auschwitz was the most notorious of the Nazi concentration camps. Some prisoners were killed immediately upon arrival. Others became slave laborers for nearby factories, and most of those were worked to death. The writer of this letter was a slave, as appears from the required use of the word Schutzhäftling before his name in the return address. The word meant a "protected detainee," one in "protective custody " of the most notorious terms in Nazi law. Unlike a judicial prison sentence, protective custody was open ended and was administered by the Gestapo rather than by the courts. A victim was held at the Gestapo's pleasure.

        Mini Archive Comprising Two Photograph Albums with Excellent Views of Northern India, Two War Campaign Medals, and Ephemeral Documents.

      1943-1946, India - Mini Archive comprising: two photographs albums of northern Indian, two war campaign and ephemeral documents including an army pass, of an English officer Stanley E. Dean of Warminster, Wiltshire, who was a surgeon with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section based in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, and serving in India during the Second World War. The albums together contain 321 gelatin silver print photographs, mostly snapshot views, with detailed manuscript captions, mounted onto cardstock leaves separated with tissue guards. An additional 7 photographs are loosely placed within. Two oblong 8vo. string-tied albums measuring approximately 26 x 19 cm, cloth boards, one brown, the other taupe. Front pastedown to second album is annotated and dated in manuscript. Fourteen (14) newspaper clippings are placed within the volumes alongside related photographs. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 5,5 x 5,5 cm, the largest 10 x 12 cm, and 2 panoramic views measuring 15,5 x 6 cm. Two campaign medals and one accompanying ribbon bar were awarded to the officer for his service in India, here contained in the original O.H.M.S. box of issue with the entitlement notice leaf, in excellent condition as issued and never worn. Slight wear to album boards and medals box, otherwise the lot in Very Good Condition. Nostalgic and striking views of Kashmir and Jammu, the Himalayan foothill regions, high altitude hill station towns, and New Delhi, are abundant in the two albums of photographs compiled surgeon Stanley Dean of the Royal Corps of Signals Telegraph Operating Section. Dean departed for India from Liverpool on 14 August 1943 with the British Army Royal Corps of Signals, No 122 Telegraph Operating Section. During the Second World War, the Supplementary Air Formation Signals were augmented to at least nineteen units. Several were formed in Kirkburton in Yorkshire in 1943, some of which were for service India, their main purpose being to supply signal personnel for advanced air fields. The 19th regiment, for example, supported Gemeral Slim's 14th Army as it liberated Burma from the Japanese. On a grander scale, the Signals Units were tasked with improving signals, communications, and radar, which also involved improving the Indian Army post and telegraph departments, and constructing long-distance overhead carrier systems. Travelling and mountain trekking extensively throughout northern India, photographs capture the vastness of the mountainous region of Kashmir. Highlights include panoramic views of Nainital and of the Himalayan Range with the Nada Devi summit at its center, multiple views of Dal Lake near Srinagar some of which show the long houseboats for which it is famed, rare photographs of the Northwest Frontier customs post at Domel, nostalgic photographs of Shimla and Srinagar, and ancient ruins such as the Kashmiri Pandit Martand Sun Temple. His voyage home, departing from Bombay on 14 August 1946 precisely three years to the day after his departure from England, is captured in 20 photographs. The passage took him to Aden and through the Suez Canal, with a stop at Port Said. The first album begins in what is now Pakistan, with the scenes at the remote town of Jhika Gali and the Topa Hills. Superb professional photographs capture life in the historic town of Murree which was founded in 1851 as a sanatorium for British troops. At least one photograph shows the officer at Islamabad, now the capital city of Pakistan, with rickshaws behind him. Twelve images show army camp life on Kuldana Mountain, Murree, Pakistan. A cantonment named "Kuldana" was established in the 1860s by the British Army, in the verdant hills of Murree. [Several renowned British regiments have camped at Kuldana, some of which include the Northumberland Fusiliers, Devonshires, Duke of Wellington's, Leicestershires, Bedfordshires Regiment, 3rd Battalion The Rifle Brigade, 1st Battalion Gordon's Highlanders, West Yor

        Two Photographs Albums from Iraq and Egypt, with Rare Post-war Snapshots.

      Iraq and Egypt, 1946-1948 A pair of photograph albums spanning two years of duty in Iraq, with tours to Egypt and the Suez Canal Zone, of Royal Air Force officer W. Derek Wilson who served with the AHQ Iraq Command, Pay and Equipment Accounts Division. Together, the albums contain some 240 photographs pertaining to Wilson's post abroad, each with a detailed manuscript caption. Additionally, some 20 photographs illustrate the return passage via Malta, and 40 photographs show his wedding and home life upon returning to England. Oblong 8vo. string-tied albums measuring approximately 18,5 x 22 cm, brown cloth over brown patterned boards, with the officer's inscription to front pastedown. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 4,5 x 6 cm, and the largest 21 x 14 cm, the majority measuring approximately 8,5 x 6 cm. Some wear to boards, particularly at extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition, crisp and uncommon snapshot views. With glimpses of indigenous life in Habbaniya, Mosul, and Baghdad, a desirable tour of the Egyptian pyramids, memorable scenes of remote military camps, colleagues and aircraft, this uncommon visual chronicle effectively illustrates the post world war years and final stages of British occupation in Iraq and the Suez Canal Zone. Wilson inscribes his first album, indicating that his departure from England had been in June 1946. Almaza, near Cairo was his first post, the Air Force Base and military camp seemingly one in the same at the time. A series of aircrafts are photographed as they arrived for service. Close proximity and regular flight service from an Anglo-Egyptian company, granted him the opportunity to visit Giza. The album includes snapshot photographs of the sphinx and pyramids, as well as views from Cairo and Heliopolis. At Habbaniya, a rare photograph captures four Sheiks in traditional dress mounting their horses for a customary race, the under-secretary of the State of Aïr being present for the event and seen in the foreground. To remember this post by, he further photographs his billet accommodations, fellow RAF officers, a flying boat aircraft having landed on the lake, and some city scenes. Lake Habbaniyah created a retreat-like reprieve from military duty with its pristine beaches. Christmas 1947 was spent at Habbaniya. Indigenous life in Iraq is best captured in photographs taken at a village called Abu Flais, situated near Baghdad. In the capital city he takes notice of the exquisite architectural ornamentation of the Al-Haydar Khana mosque and its minarets, as well as the ancient Assyrian Gate, and the statue of King Faisal I whose reign ended at the time of his death in 1933. Also at Baghdad, he embarks a small canopied row boat to cross the Tigris. Wilson and company make a journey though rugged mountainous terrain into northern Iraq, from Baghdad to Mosul, travelling through mountain passes between some camps on horseback. Describing the single winding road to Ser Amadia which pierces an endless vista of desolate hills, the officer counts 61 hairpin corners, the camp situated at an altitude of 6,000 feet. In the distance the indigenous village of Amadia is seen perched upon a rocky plateau. Views to illustrate his time of service in the Suez Canal Zone include rare camp scenes from RAF El Harma and RAF Kasfareet, the latter of which was the largest RAF unit in the area. Also uncommon are the photographs of the officer's club called Malcolm Club, situated on Egypt's Great Bitter Lake. A scant few photographs are taken at Port Said. [Despite the appearance of peace and harmony in these photographs, there was much unrest in the region at this time, which would only increase. The outbreak of the Second World War had stimulated the Iraqi economy, in particular domestic industrial production, by cutting off the ready supply of foreign goods. The influx of British troops provided an important market for local products, and the army directly employed a large number of Iraqis. British military occupation of Iraq continued until late 1947. However, the years following the Second World War were marked by instability and turmoil across the Middle East. Colonial powers retreated and social order gradually deteriorated, militant trade union movement began to challenge capitalism, nationalists and industrialists were at great odds, a resulting in a waves of strikes and a period of deep revolutionary crisis in the 1950s.] Royal Air Force Station Habbaniya, more commonly known as RAF Habbaniya, (originally RAF Dhibban) was a Royal Air Force station at Habbaniyah, about 55 miles (89 km) west of Baghdad in modern day Iraq, on the banks of the Euphrates near Lake Habbaniyah. It was operational from October 1936 until the 31 May 1959 when the British were finally withdrawn following the July 1958 Revolution. The base was extensive and included the Air Headquarters of RAF Iraq Command, maintenance units, an aircraft depot, an RAF hospital, RAF Iraq Levies barracks, the RAF Armoured Car Company depot as well as fuel and bomb stores. There were numerous billets, messes and a wide range of leisure facilities including swimming pools, cinemas and theatres, sports pitches, tennis courts and riding stables. It was self-contained with its own power station, water purification plant and sewage farm. Within the base was the Civil Cantonment for the civilian workers and their families and the families of the RAF Iraq Levies. Water taken from the Euphrates for the irrigation systems enabled green lawns, flower beds and even ornamental Botanical Gardens. After World War II the families of British personnel started living at Habbaniya and a school was started..
