        Indoctrination Division, Air Training Command, Lackland Air Base, San Antonio, Texas, July 19, 1947

      Original photograph, 16-7/8 by 19-7/8 inches (paper); image size, 13-1/2 by 16 inches. A photograph of soldiers forming the air force symbol. 'Goldbeck's last major insignia effort was also his most spectacular. It enlisted the support of more than 21,000 men. Staging this formation required two months of planning as well as the special 212-foot tower that Goldbeck built.'--Louis Kaplan, American Exposures: Photography and Community in the Twentieth Century, p. 18.' The armed services were not officially integrated until 1948 so perhaps it was appropriate the most of the African American soldiers are grouped in the center of the Air Force star, surrounded by white soldiers wearing white. This image is on the cover of one of the two monographs devoted to Goldbeck's photos. Pinholes and minor loss to corners, minor soiling to margins; photographer's stamp on back. Image fine.

It was dear of you to send us this good words and good wishes it conveyed from you. I feel with the passing of the years a stronger attachment than ever to old friends, especially those who have shared family attachments as well. So to you, if you will permit me to do so, I send very affectionate remembrances, and of good wishes for 1948.Billy.Printed card with inscription and signature had been torn and tears repaired using Japanese mulberry and silk fibre paper. In very good condition otherwise. A scarce to rare personal signed and inscribed document to Canada's longest serving Prime Minister. The Mary WLMK is referring to in this note is most likely Mrs. Mary Scott, 82 South Drive, Toronto, Ont. A friend of his parents and whom he had previous personal correspondence with before and after this. WLKM had very few friends and family and rarely showed his private side in public which makes these type of personal communications insightful and rare. Highly collectable. WLMK, a man of many faces and names - Willie, Rex, Mackenzie, Billy- His mother referred to him as "Billy". Called "Billy" by his classmates - a member of the class of '95 at University of Toronto. "He may want to be a politician one day," his friend Oscar Rumpal contributed, "but if you meet Billy in a fist fight you''ll know why we call The Rebel" quoted from William Lyon Mackenzie King: p.14, Dreams and Shadows By Lian Goodall.A survey in 1997 by Maclean's magazine ranked King first among all Canada's prime ministers, ahead of Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir Wilfrid Laurier and maintained a very respectable third in the 2011 survey.

        Dark Carnival

      Sauk City, WI: Arkham House 1947 - First edition. Inscribed by Bradbury on the front free endpaper: "For Stu Oderman - / This rare first / edition of 'Dark / Carnival' signed / on the first day / of January, 1982! / With friendship! / From / Ray Bradbury". Publisher's black cloth, lettered in yellow. About near fine, with some rubbing to lettering on the spine, light offsetting to the endpapers, pages lightly toned. Overall, a pleasing copy of Bradbury's first book, inscribed by the author. Bradbury inscribed this copy of Dark Carnival to Stuart Oderman, a pianist best known for his musical accompaniments for silent films. Although the origin of their friendship is unclear, Bradbury and Oderman were long-time friends and maintained a steady written correspondence from the early 1960s through Bradbury's death in 2012. In a 2008 interview with The Star Ledger, Oderman cited Bradbury as one of his favorite authors. A collection of his macabre short stories, Dark Carnival is Ray Bradbury's first published book and includes "The Small Assassin," "Jack-in-the-Box," "The Scythe," "Uncle Einar," "The Traveler," and "The Jar," among others. Additionally it includes "The Homecoming," which Truman Capote famously discovered in a pile of submissions while working as an editor for Mademoiselle. Interestingly, Bradbury originally intended to title Dark Carnival "The Child's Garden of Terrors," which emphasized the nightmarish qualities of the collected fiction. Notably, this collection's carnival and childhood themes are personally significant to Bradbury as they both played a large role in his becoming a writer. According to his official biographer, Sam Weller, Bradbury began writing it after visiting a travelling circus that came to his town, where he met the eccentric Mr. Electrico, who cryptically instructed the young Bradbury to "live forever!" Bradbury claimed that he began writing voraciously shortly after this significant experience at the travelling circus. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      New York: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.,, 1947. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. With the dust jacket. A few small light marks to front board, edges and margins of text block gently toned. Otherwise a fine copy in an excellent jacket with lightly toned flaps and rear panel, a small hole to the slightly sunned spine, a few minor nicks, and two small tape repairs to verso. First edition, first printing of the "first book-length treatment of ... the Sequential Probability Ratio Test" (front flap), a statistical technique developed by Wald, then Professor of Mathematical Statistics at Columbia University. Originally from Rumania, Wald studied under Karl Menger at the University of Vienna, then worked with Oskar Morgenstern before moving to America in 1938 at the invitation of the Cowles Commission to do econometric research. "During World War II, Wald worked with the Statistical Research Group and developed much of the theory of sequential analysis. Although he did not create the idea of taking observations sequentially, Wald did invent the sequentiaal probability ratio test. This original material was published in 1947 after wartime restrictions were lifted." (E. R. Weintraub in The New Palgrave.)

        THE CASE OF THE FAN DANCER'S HORSE (Presentation Copy of the First Edition)

      New York: William Morrow, 1947. Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE FAN DANCER'S HORSE. New York: William Morrow, 1947. First Edition, first printing. A FINE, bright copy in a better than Very Good ORIGINAL PRICED ($2.50) DUST JACKET. The DJ has great eye appeal. Its faults include a long tear along the front fold which has been neatly reinforced with tape and a smaller tear to the rear fold. There are some chips to the edges, and a thin sliver of loss to the very top of the front panel. WARM PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION BY THE AUTHOR in the year of publication: "To Tee Rose/ and no matter if I write a hundred more books, I'll always envy you the facile wit of your pen, Tee/ My love as always/ Erle. Underneath the inscription, Erle Stanley Gardner has added his full signature followed by the date: August 1947. Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG and she always received Gardner's latest book in the mail -- usually immediately upon publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her dating from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE CASE OF THE FAN DANCER'S HORSE involves the following: there are two gorgeous fan dancers with the same name, two blood-soaked ostrich fans, a samurai sword, and a horse with a very unusual addition to its saddle. .

      Munich, Central Historical Commission. 1947-48. Paperback. Small 8vo; First Edition. Paper Wrappers, Includes photos with captions in English & Yiddish, as well as many important articles in Yiddish. One of 8000 sets issued. In Yiddish with English Cover, table of contents, & photo captions for all issues. Important journal lasting 10 issues which written & published by Jewish DPs themselves to document crimes and survival in the Holocaust. The publisher's decision to include the English table of contents, probably in part to insure the journal's use in future war crimes trials, makes these first hand accounts especially user-friendly today, almost 60 years later. Robinson & Friedman #1247: "The Historical Commission [was] established in 1945 under the auspices of the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in the U. S. Zone. [It] Ceased operations early in 1949. Details of the activities of the Munich center can be found in No. 1247 [Fun Letsten Churbn]..." Hagit Lavsky notes in the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust (Gutman, ed., 1990, p. 383) that, "Commemoration and documentation projects [by Jewish DPs] included the work of the Tsentraler Historisher Komisiye (Central Historical Commission), established in December 1945 by the Central Committee in Munich, to assist in bringing Nazi criminals to trial. A network of regional committees was set up under the commission's auspices whose task it was to take evidence and collect documentary material, including material on DPs. In August 1946, the commission published the first issue of the monthly FUN LETZTEN HURBAN." Published under DP-Publications License US-E-3 OMGB, Information Control Division.

MacKenzie was still Prime Minister of Canada in his third and final term from October 23, 1935 to November 15, 1948.INSCRIPTION and SIGNATURE on back...(Dec. 17, 1947 Christmas Eve 1947My dear Mary,Your beautiful card of Christmas and birthday greetings brought me no end of pleasure at this Christmastide. It was dear of you to send us this good words and good wishes it conveyed from you. I feel with the passing of the years a stronger attachment than ever to old friends, especially those who have shared family attachments as well. So to you, if you will permit me to do so, I send very affectionate remembrances, and of good wishes for 1948.Billy.Printed card with inscription and signature had been torn and tears repaired using Japanese mulberry and silk fibre paper. In very good condition otherwise. A scarce to rare personal signed and inscribed document to Canada's longest serving Prime Minister. The Mary WLMK is referring to in this note is most likely Mrs. Mary Scott, 82 South Drive, Toronto, Ont. A friend of his parents and whom he had previous personal correspondence with before and after this. WLKM had very few friends and family and rarely showed his private side in public which makes these type of personal communications insightful and rare. Highly collectable. WLMK, a man of many faces and names - Willie, Rex, Mackenzie, Billy- His mother referred to him as "Billy". Called "Billy" by his classmates - a member of the class of '95 at University of Toronto. "He may want to be a politician one day," his friend Oscar Rumpal contributed, "but if you meet Billy in a fist fight you''ll know why we call The Rebel" quoted from William Lyon Mackenzie King: p.14, Dreams and Shadows By Lian Goodall.A survey in 1997 by Maclean's magazine ranked King first among all Canada's prime ministers, ahead of Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir Wilfrid Laurier and maintained a very respectable third in the 2011 survey.
