        Typed letter signed

      1947. Signed. TRUMAN, Harry.Typed letter signed.Washington, D.C.: White House, August 5, 1947.August 5, 1947 typed letter signed by President Truman on official White House letterhead to Adele I. Springer, President of the National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL), alongside a photogravure of Truman pictured as he holds up the famously mistaken newspaper with its headline, "Dewey Defeats Truman," together handsomely matted and framed.This August 5, 1947 typed letter on official White House letterhead is signed by Truman, who rose to the presidency after the death of FDR in 1945. Truman's letter to Adele Springer, President of the National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL), reads: "August 5, 1947. My dear Miss Springer: I am pleased to extend greetings to the National Association of Women Lawyers on the occasion of its annual meeting. The increasing influence of women—particularly professional women—in our national affairs is, indeed, reassuring. 'To secure justice for all' is among your high and worthy aims. Your Association is well-equipped to furnish leadership to accomplish this noble objective—not only leadership in the legal professions, but in other fields of American life and human endeavor. Your discussions, I know, will emphasize the need for all to understand the many complex problems that confront us, to participate fully in civic affairs, and to contribute to a better appreciation of the worth and meaning of American citizenship and the needs of our Nation. Your interest in the aims and purposes of the United Nations is most gratifying. May this interest in the work of that great world organization continue, so that you may be an effective instrument in helping to enlighten and mold the opinions of our people in international affairs. In ever increasing measure, we must have leaders of intelligence and good will if our Nation is to fulfill its obligations to the cause of peace. Very sincerely yours, [signed] Harry Truman [typescript] Miss Adele I. Springer, President, National Association of Women Lawyers, 60 Wall Street, New York 5, N.Y." The letter is matted with a black-and-white photogravure of Truman grinning as he raises high the Chicago Daily Tribune with its mistaken headline, "Dewey Defeats Truman." Truman won the 1948 election by defeating Dewey in what is widely considered America's greatest election upset.Springer, who opened her Wall Street law firm in 1938, was NAWL President from 1946-47, a year in which she also represented the NAWL at the State Department Conference on Foreign Policy. In addition, after a survey found less than 50 women on the bench, Springer and the NAWL sent resolutions to President Truman, the U.S. Attorney General and state governors, calling for the appointment of more qualified women to the bench and public office. In his letter Truman's particular reference to the association between the NAWL and the United Nations comes not long after the NAWL was accredited by the State Department as an official observer at the U.N. The NAWL's goal of building "bridges of cooperation beyond the borders of the U.S. is also found in the action of Springer, who enrolled NAWL as a member of the new International Bar Association at its 1947 charter meeting in New York" (Smith, Century of Achievement, 8). A fine framed signed letter and photogravure.

        ADMIRAL HALSEY'S STORY (Inscribed By Halsey)

      New York: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1947. A great inscription which adds considerably to the value of the signature. A significant WWII related collectible. The inscription on the half title page below title reads, "To Alan Charles Sanford -- A gallant sailor on the U.S.S. Ward at the time of the treacherous attack on Pearl Harbor. 7 Dec. 1941. W.F. Halsey." Halsy gained fame for his bold leadership of the U.S. Third Fleet in the Pacific during WWII. Halsey had many great sea victories to his credit including the naval battle of Guadalcanal, and he is prominently pictured standing next to Gen. MacArthur in the famous photo of the surrender of the Japanese aboard the U.S.S. Missouri (his flagship). That he refers to the beginning of the war against Japan in this inscription is especially important. The USS Ward he refers to was a battleship at Pearl Harbor that sank a Japanese submarine near Pearl two hours before the attack from the air began. This inscription is in a very decent copy of the book. Just a bit of light wear to the cloth keeps the book from an even better grade. The inscription in dark blue ink is bold and pleasing. . INSCRIBED/SIGNED BY ADMIRAL HALSEY. First Edition. Blue Cloth. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Octavo, 310pp.

        Alexis Zorba ou le Rivage de Crete (Zorba The Greek).

      Editions Du Chene, Paris 1947 - First French edition of Zorba the Greek, published one year after the first Greek edition and six years prior to the first English translation. Octavo, original wrappers. In very good condition. Kazantzakis traveled to Paris frequently throughout his life and spoke French fluently. From 1902 Kazantzakis studied law at the University of Athens, then went to Paris in 1907 to study philosophy. Here he fell under the influence of Henri Bergson. His 1909 dissertation was titled "Friedrich Nietzsche on the Philosophy of Right and the State." Zorba the Greek is the epic tale of a young Greek intellectual who ventures to escape his bookish life with the aid of the boisterous and mysterious Alexis Zorba. Kazantzakis has made a work of stunning genius. The book is about life. How does one live it? How does one deal with the vicissitudes of it? The tragedies? The failures? Does one stand on the sidelines of life and never jump in? Does one fear getting married or fear having children or fear doing any activity that could fail or come to naught? Zorba tells us what to do. And in the end, when the whole bloody mess comes falling down around us, and all our plans and schemes are for naught, what do you do? Dance. Dance as hard and as wild as you can. Spit and fume and sing and smash your heels into the dirt. And laugh at it all. the absurdity of worry and wondering. Zorba shows us the joy of just "being" and "doing". The novel was adapted into a successful 1964 film of the same name as well as a 1968 musical, Zorba. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Photo Album - A British Commonwealth Forces Officer's Account of the Aftermath of WWII - Occupation Souvenir of Japan

      Japan, 1947. Japan, 1947. Uniquely commemorative photograph album containing snapshot views of Hiroshima, Etajima, Bepuu, of war scenes and civilian life, taken by a member of the British Commonwealth Occupation Force serving in Japan. from July 1947. Contains 197 gelatin silver photographs neatly mounted with corners onto taupe cardstock leaves, with occasional manuscript captions. 8vo. purpose made album, navy blue satin boards skilfully illustrated and titled with embroidery to front, measuring approximately 31 x 23 x 3,5 cm. Photographs measure approximately 8 x 5,5 cm. Minor wear to extremities of boards, otherwise in Very Good Condition, bright and captivating images. A well balanced visual chronicle illustrating Japan's post war era of restoration, reformation and Westernization, a British Commonwealth Occupation Force officer has captured indigenous celebrations, undamaged Japanese monuments and gardens, quaint villages and tiered rice fields. Striking views also draw attention to Second World War devastation including the Hiroshima bombing, subsequent collaborative rebuilding efforts, and oil works - the coveted resource and cornerstone of control in industry and war. The author of these photographs is unknown. For most of the occupation period the large majority of the BCOF's personnel were Australian, although the force was also composed of British, Indian and New Zealand men. The album spans several months, possibly a year as some of the soldiers are wearing the summer uniform wand others are in the more elaborate uniform for colder months. All men all wearing the white belts, braces and gators, representing a peacetime uniform. The album begins with views of the BCOF Headquarters at Etajima still smouldering from a fire that consumed it on 26 July 1947. [One year earlier, in April 1946, HQ BCOF had moved from Kure to the island of Eta Jima.] Also in Etajima City, in Hiroshima Bay, we find several photographs of Japanese citizens enjoying a grand festivity with a parade of floats and entertainers. The troops held a march of recognition of the Independence of India, 15 August 1947, which was the officially partitioning of British India into the two new independent dominions of India and Pakistan. Photographs of the Hiroshima destruction include the Ruin of Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall. [The ruin serves as a memorial to the people who were killed in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945. Over 70,000 people were killed instantly, and another 70,000 suffered fatal injuries from the radiation. Now known as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, the Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Domu, it is part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.] Several views are taken at Beppu on the nearby island of Kyushu, the soldier evidently being granted a sojourn to visit its famous "onsen" or hot springs and grand carved statues. Here also lay abandoned carcasses of wartime aircraft and a half sunken iron vessel. Terraced rice fields, mountain views, and city scenes are captured, including what appears to be Nagarekawa-dori - an important shopping street. A rail journey also takes he and a comrade to Mount Fuji. The official British Commonwealth Occupation Force (BCOF), composed of Australian, British, Indian and New Zealand personnel, was deployed on February 21, 1946. While U.S. forces were responsible for the overall occupation, BCOF was responsible for supervising demilitarization and the disposal of Japan's war industries. BCOF was also responsible for occupation of several western prefectures and had its headquarters at Kure. At its peak, the force numbered about 40,000 personnel. The major task of the BCOF force being conducted was the destruction of the Japanese war machine. A vast quantity of equipment and warlike stores of all kinds existed in the BCOF area, troops having located caves and tunnels containing large quantities of explosives, ammunition and poison gases. Japanese military equipment and stores were disposed of, destroyed, or whenever possible re-purposed by the Japanese Home Ministry in the rehabilitation of Japanese industry and civilian life. In 1947, the BCOF began to decrease its activities in Japan. By September 1947 it had been suggested to incorporate the three Australian MP units (23,24 Independent Provost Platoons and 34th Australian Infantry Brigade Provost Company) into one organic Provost unit. The units were already operating together under the same command, it was a logical step which soon came to fruition. By this stage of the Occupation, India had withdrawn its contingent, including Indian Military Police. The occupation force officially wound up in 1951. . Very Good.

        Vor ofødte søn. Skuespil i fire akter.

      Köpenhamn; Nyt Nordisk Forlag / Arnold Busck, 1947. Originalets titel: Vår ofödde son (Stockholm, 1945). Översättning av Carl Erik Soya. 21,5x16 cm. 120 s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Det överdimensionerade omslaget är något veckat i yttre och nedre marginalerna. Ryggen är delvis loss i limningen och är något skrynklad. Rygghuvudet är aningen nött, kort reva i nedre framfals och några riss i yttermarginalerna. Fin inlaga. Dedikation: ''Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''
