        Story of Japanese Raw Silk: Told in 47 Original Photographs

      Tokyo: Japanese Government Raw Silk Bureau. Very Good with no dust jacket. Hardcover. Circa 1947-1948. A rare album with original color patterned silk covered boards, string tied on the left. Silk has light soil and fraying on edges. Image cropped due to scanner size. The album contains 47 4.3" x 6.3" original black and white photographs mounted on thick boards with corner mounts. Gilt on edges is worn. Each photo is captioned in English, from "Silkworm Moths hatching and drying their wings" to "Raw silk being loaded on ship for export." The title page is a pasted in label on the first free endpaper, "The Story of Japanese Raw Silk Presented to Major General Daniel Noce / Album and Pictures Prepared by the Japanese Raw Silk Bureau S. Hirata Director / Foreword and Explanation [captions? ] Prepared by The Silk Branch Textile Division ESS GH & SCAP R. A. Hickerson, Chief H. Shiga, Silk Consultant." The album was most likely presented to General Daniel Noce (1874-1976) for his efforts in promoting Japanese economic development through trade. From 1946 to 1948 he was Chief of the Civil Affairs Division under General MacArthur and was instrumental in promoting Japanese industry and trade. He believed that the establishment of trade was a way to lessen the danger of Communist influence and relieve the costs of rebuilding Japan for the United States. No records found of a similar album on OCLC or elsewhere. ; 10 1/4" x 14 1/4" x 1 3/4" .

        MASQUE OF MERCY

      New York Henry Holt and Company 1947 - 2 volumes. First Edition and a FINE ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY ROBERT FROST, dated 1950. 8vo, publisher’s original light blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spine. In the original dustjacket. [6], 23, [1 blank] pp. A very fresh and well preserved copy, the blue cloth excellent but for trivial rubbing at the extremities, quite handsome with only some expected age mellowing and a small chip at tip of the lightly faded jacket spine panel. A few unobtrusive spots on three early leaves likely caused by something once laid in. FIRST EDITION AND A FINE AND PLEASING SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY, inscribed by Frost to Virginia Proctor, secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. Though Frost tenure at Harvard was short, his friendship with Mrs. Proctor lasted well beyond his years in Cambridge. It was President Conant who first cited Frost as "The Poet of New England" when Frost was given an honorary degree of Litt.D. in 1937. In 1938 Frost resigned from Amherst and was elected to Harvard's Board of Overseers and that year also saw him placed in the English department at the university. Conant reappointed Frost for the years 1939 through 1942. Though Frost's formal ties with Harvard would end in that year, his association with Virginia Proctor would continue for years following. The inscription on this 1947 publication reads, "To Virginia / From R. F. Frost / 1950" This is the FIRST EDITION of Robert Frost’s experiment in blank verse play in which Biblical characters in modern settings discuss ethics and man’s relation to God. "Mr. Frost, who has never been impressed by superficial orthodoxies, rolls up his poetic sleeves and discusses the possibility of reconciling justice with mercy in a sharp wit, a firm logic, and a strong faith in God and man. Here is proof again, and shining proof, of his genius."- Publisher [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

English volume: xii, 66 pp.; Arabic volume reproduced from manuscript text: [x], 78, [1] pp. 2 vols. 4to. Dark green morocco, spine and upper cover titled in gilt (English volume titled in English in Arabic), pictorial endsheets. Minor rubbing (spine ends of Arabic volume rubbed and scuffed, small loss at head). Very good plus. Tiny owner name inkstamp on top edge. Produced in a small number. Illustrated with 14 plates with captioned photographs, figures, or charts, and a folding map. English volume: xii, 66 pp.; Arabic volume reproduced from manuscript text: [x], 78, [1] pp. 2 vols. 4to. The King's New Railroad. Fascinating glimpse of a key postwar infrastructure development project in Saudi Arabia, the report outlining possible routes between the Gulf port city of Dammam and the capital city, Riyadh, "the center of all political and financial activities ... supplied at excessive cost with food, clothing, and other materials shipped to ports on both the Persian Gulf and Red Sea and then carried on long hauls by camels over the old camel trails or by trucks over the one coast to coast road which is little more than a trail." The report, jointly produced by a consortium of the construction firms Bechtel, Morrison-Knudsen, and Sverdrup & Parcel, discusses possible routes, options for rail transit and a highway system, construction and maintenance costs, planning, benefits, and an appendix on the Sand Hills Highway in California. The project was approved by Ibn Saud, and construction on the railway began in 1949. It was the first major rail project since the 1908 Hijaz rail line on the western side of the peninsula. The first link connected Dammam with the oil center of Abqaiq in eastern Nejd, and the railroad was completed in 1952. A key document in the development of Saudi Arabia. OCLC records only a handful of copies of the English text, and no copies of the Arabic version of the report. OCLC: 17072696 (5 locations, English text only)

        Autograph Album]: Signatures of Joe Liggins and The Honeydrippers

      [New York] 1947 - Autograph album. Measuring 4 x 6 inches. String-tied maroon paper wrappers with "Autographs" on the front wrap. Very good with the silk tie a bit frayed, general rubbing and the corners a little chipped. An album containing the signatures of the five members of the rhythm and blues band Joe Liggins and The Honeydrippers," collected by "Helen" who saw them perform at The Harlem Renaissance Ballroom, the premiere venue for African-American performers and sports in New York. The group was organized by Joe Liggins (1915-1987), an African American pianist from Guthrie, Oklahoma, who had moved to California and played with a number of bands before starting his own, at once becoming a mainstay of the R&B circuit in Los Angeles. His group's breakaway hit was called "The Honeydripper" which topped the Billboard R&B chart (then called the "Race Chart") in 1945, remaining there for 18 weeks, tied with Louis Jordan's "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" for longest running chart topper. A number of other hits followed, including "Rag Mop" and "Pink Champagne." Each member of the band - Joe Liggns, Little Willie Jackson, James Jackson, Frank Pasley, and Preston "Peppy" Prince - signed the book "To Helen, best wishes, [signature], [instrument], Honey Drippers," save Liggins who omitted the name of his instrument and the band and Jackson who omitted the name of his instrument. There are five other signatures in the album that we have been unable to identify. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        "The Tin Star" [story in] Collier's Magazine

      New York: Crowell-Collier Publishing Company. December 6, 1947. First. First edition. Folio. Slightly cocked, a little foxing and minor rubbing, original mailing label of magazine subscriber, overall a very good or better copy. Original appearance of Cunningham's story "The Tin Star," which was the basis for the classic Western film High Noon starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly in her first major role, written by Carl Foreman and directed by Fred Zinnemann. The film, often described as "a western for people who don't like westerns," is notable for several reasons including its brave and not-so-subtle allegory of blacklisting, its use of a real-time cinematic scenario, and its marketing of a theme song ("Do Not Forsake Me"). Cooper won an Academy Award, and Dimitri Tiomkin won two (one for the song, one for the entire score). The magazine also includes Jack Finney's second published story, and an article by Irving Wallace. An elusive source for a seminal film, High Noon was the highest rated of the eight Westerns selected in the original AFI list of America's 100 Greatest Movies. .

        STEEPLE BUSH

      New York Henry Holt and Company 1947 - First edition, AN EXCELLENT ASSOCIATION COPY WARMLY INSCRIBED BY ROBERT FROST, SIGNED AND DATED 1947. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine. In the original dustjacket. 63, notes pp. A fine copy with only a touch of very minor mellowing to the spine tips. The jacket with some edge wear and the jacket spine panel toned and with some loss at the head and foot. FIRST EDITION AND A SCARCE SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY, warmly inscribed by Frost to Virginia Proctor, secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. Though Frost's tenure at Harvard was short, his friendship with Mrs. Proctor lasted well beyond his years in Cambridge. It was President Conant who first cited Frost as "The Poet of New England" when Frost was given an honorary degree of Litt.D. in 1937.

Conant reappointed Frost for the years 1939 through 1942. Though Frost's formal ties with Harvard would end in that year, his association with Virginia Proctor would continue for many years following. The inscription on this 1947 publication reads, "To Virginia Proctor / From her old friend / Robert Frost / August 25 1947" STEEPLE BUSH Includes over forty poems. The poems in this volume carry on the early and characteristic lyric note, which has never been clearer and surer. The people and places of New England are here too, and the earthy, warm, and hearty humor of this highly individual specimen of American character - the New Englander - is as evident and as droll as ever. For pure poetry, and for the kind of very American perception which is the woof and web of his art, this volume - which takes its title from new England’s native plant called Steeple bush - is a distinguished book."

        Important Margaret Mitchell letter: "It seems to some of us that very definite efforts are made to bring about misunderstandings and hatred between the different sections of our country---to make Northerners believe that all Southerners are ignorant degenerates bent on oppressing the Negro ? It was good of you to write that you wanted another book about the characters in 'Gone With the Wind' because you thought it might help to bring understanding of the South?"

      Atlanta, Georgia, February 6, 1947. 7.25" x 10.25". "Typed Letter Signed ""Margaret Mitchell Marsh,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 10.25."" Atlanta, Georgia, February 6, 1947. To Mrs. Chandler. On ""Margaret Mitchell"" stationery. Two tiny holes in upper left. With unrelated 1936 envelope from Mitchell to ""Mrs. Josephine Chandler, Mundelein, Ill."" Recipient used the back of the letter to compile a short grocery list for, most likely, a Southern dish (no show through). Fine condition.In part, ""...some of the thoughts you expressed in your letter were thoughts that have been in my mind and those of many Southerners for a long time---that all of us are begged to 'understand the Russians and the Chinese and the ""good"" Germans' while no one tries to make us understand our own people. In fact it seems to some of us that very definite efforts are made to bring about misunderstandings and hatred between the different sections of our country---to make Northerners believe that all Southerners are ignorant degenerates bent on oppressing the Negro, and to make Southerners believe that all Northerners are vicious busybodies bent on telling us how to run our business. As neither of these ideas is true, it would be well dir all of us to do our best to fight against the spread of such falsehoods. It was good of you to write that you wanted another book about the characters in 'Gone With the Wind' because you thought it might help to bring understanding of the South. I thank you most sincerely for the compliment, but I do not contemplate writing such a sequel..."

        Bartender's Guide.

      New York: Doubleday & Company,, 1947. With drawings by Ray Sullivan. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine and decoration to front board in black. With the pictorial dust jacket. Illustrations in the text by Ray Sullivan An excellent copy in a chipped and rubbed jacket with faint dampstaining to spine panel. First edition, first printing. Inscribed and signed by Trader Vic in his characteristically extravagant (and mostly indecipherable) scrawl on the front free endpaper, "To my Maeleen [?] aloha... Trader Vic". His inscription is followed by one in a different hand, "To a nice lady I've known a long time. Audrey Mae Chesney, from Trader's Store". Trader Vic's manual contains over 1,500 cocktail recipes for the home and the professional bartender and "also includes several chapters of advice for bartenders, covering both the joys and the perils of bartending, how to be a good host, and how to handle guests who can't handle your drinks" (jacket blurb). Vic "The Trader" Bergeron opened his first bar in Oakland in 1934, which grew into the worldwide franchise of Polynesian-themed restaurants and bars, Trader Vic's. The master mixer travelled extensively to research rum and cocktail mixology and in 1944 invented the Mai Tai (although his friend and rival Don the Beachcomber claimed to be the real inventor).

        6 highly-finished pencil drawings in the guest-book for Werzer's Gasthof "zum Weißes Rössl

      Pörtschach am Wörthersee: , 1947. Octavo. Original red three-quarter cloth, floral boards. 6 pencil drawings by Pock. A little rubbed, else very good. The guest-book for Werzer's famous Gasthof "zum Weißes Rössl" at Pörtschach am Wörthersee, now the home of the Brahms Haus Museum, containing 6 highly-finished pencil drawings by Alexander Pock; : I) Mounted officer, with New Year's wishes for 1947, dated on 26 December 1946. II) Bust-portrait of a feldmarschal, 23 March 1947 III) Two sailors, "on a cozy and beautiful afternoon" 20 April 1947 IV.) Bust-portrait of a general "Before setting out for Carinthia" dated 11 May 1947 V) Drum major, "drawn on a cozy Sunday afternoon" of 12 October 1947 VI) Mounted bugler, dated 16 November 1947. Born in Znojmo, Moravia, now in the Czech Republic Alexander Pock (1871-1950), became on of the most popular Austrian military, genre and portrait painters of his period. He studied at the Vienna Academy under Christian Griepenkerl and Carl Rudolph Huber, showing early enthusiasm for military subjects, with a special talent for equestrian portraits. He came to the attention of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, who became an important patron, and provided many prestigious commissions for Pock. Immediately after Franz Ferdinand's assassination in Sarajevo and the outbreak of the First World War, Pock signed up as a war artist, working at the Front in Galicia, Transylvania, in the Krn (Isonzo) and South Tyrol. Pock had great facility as a sketch artist, quickly working up his studies from life into full studio paintings. His extremely naturalistic representations of horses was based on intensive studies from nature, spending many hours at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. His clients were mainly of the court and aristocracy, especially the Bohemian nobility, and the military hierarchy, a clientele which was decimated by the war, forcing Pock to concentrate on developing new patronage among the bourgeoisie. But he never lost his love of the military and continued to produce images of the Austrian Army during the First Republic, work characterised by his painstaking accuracy, and meticulous rendering of detail, meaning that his work is considered a highly reliable source for historians of the period. Many of Pock's works are inevitably in private hands, but examples can be seen in Austrian Museums including the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum and Museen der Stadt Wien.
