        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. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.

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

      San Antonio: National Photo News Service, 1947. Photograph Photograph. Near Fine. 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.

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.

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.

Die Verhandlungen und sonstigen Materialien des Prozesses werden englisch, französisch, russisch und deutsch veröffentlicht, also in den vier Sprachen, die im Verfahren zur Anwendung gekommen sind. Die als Beweismittel zugelassenen Dokumente werden nur in ihrer Originalsprache abgedruckt. Der erste Band enthält grundlegende offizielle Vorprozeßdokumente, ferner das Urteil des Gerichtshofes und die gegen die Angeklagten ausgesprochenen Strafen. In den folgenden Bänden werden die Sitzungsprotokolle in vollem Umfang veröffentlicht, beginnend mit der vorbereitenden Sitzung vom 14. November 1945 und endend mit der Schlußsitzung vom 1. Oktober 1946. Diesen Bänden wird ein Indexband folgen. Dokumente, die als Beweismaterial zugelassen worden sind, schließen die Veröffentlichung ab. Das Verfahren vor dem Internationalen Militärgerichtshof wurde, im vollen Wortlaut stenographisch und außerdem durch elektrische Tonaufnahme festgehalten. Die Überprüfungsabteilungen haben Zitate, Statistiken und andere Angaben in den vier Sprachen nachgeprüft und augenfällige grammatikalische sowie unerhebliche Stilfehler ausgeschieden. Die berichtigten Texte wurden zur Veröffentlichung durch Oberst Ray für die Vereinigten Staaten, Mr. Mercer für das Vereinigte Königreich, M.

Zwanzig Angeklagte wurden verurteilt, sechs von ihnen waren führende Militärs. Dieser Prozess war der erste der dreizehn Nürnberger Prozesse. Die Verhandlung fand vor einem eigens von den Drei Mächten eingerichteten Ad-hoc-Strafgerichtshof, dem Internationalen Militärgerichtshof (IMG; englisch International Military Tribunal, IMT), statt. Er dauerte vom 20. November 1945 bis zum 1. Oktober 1946 und fand im Justizpalast an der Fürther Straße in der Stadt Nürnberg statt. Die Angeklagten und zahlreiche Zeugen wurden im angrenzenden Zellengefängnis Nürnberg inhaftiert. Die Folgeprozesse unter anderem gegen Ärzte, Juristen sowie führende Personen aus der Wirtschaft fanden ebenfalls in Nürnberg, der Stadt der NSDAP-Reichsparteitage, statt. Wegen des beginnenden Kalten Krieges war damit aber nicht mehr der IMG befasst, sondern amerikanische Militärgerichte. Rechtshistorisch sind der Internationale Militärgerichtshof und der am 19. Januar 1946 eingerichtete Internationale Militärgerichtshof für den Fernen Osten Vorläufer des 2003 eingerichteten Internationalen Strafgerichtshof (IStGH) in Den Haag. // Inhalt des Einführungsbandes: Mitglieder und stellvertretende Mitglieder des Gerichtshofs - Beamte des Genenalsekretariats - Anklagebehörde - Angeklagte und Verteidiger - Einsetzung des Gerichtshofs - Londoner Viermächte-Abkommen vom 8.

        BEHOLD THIS WOMAN - PRESENTATION COPY

      D. Appleton-Century Company, Inc., New York 1947 - First Printing. Octavo; light gray cloth, with titled and blocked in black on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 281pp. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Goodis to a fellow employee at Warner Brother's: "February 9, 1948. To - Helen Fahringer - who is one of the most pleasant personalities in the Writers' Building at Warners. With my fond wishes - David Goodis." Faint offset to pastedowns, else a tight, Fine copy. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.75), lightly spine-sunned, with some light edgewear, 2 short tears to rear panel, with a small scrape at upper corner of front joint; 2" of unnecessary brown paper reinforcement along edges on verso; Very Good+. Behold This Woman is Goodis' most autobiographical novel, a bizarre paean and cathartic payback to his estranged wife, Elaine Astor. The book was commercially successful, but more importantly, Goodis used the novel to lay the foundation for the type of woman his male protagonists would become entangled with; think Mommy Dearest meets The Black Widow. The novel tells the story of Clara Ervin, a manipulative, calculating, and cold-blooded woman who systematically emasculates and ruins her husband, as well as several other men, before meeting a violent death. To some degree, she embodies many characteristics of Goodis' wife Elaine, a central character in his life and the person who, ultimately, dealt him a piercing blow from which he did not recover for the remainder of his days. Books inscribed by Goodis are extremely rare; we know of but a handful of examples which have come to the market, nearly all of which were inscribed to people Goodis worked with at Warner Brothers, during some of the happier times in his life. The recipient was a much-loved secretary at Warner Brothers, working there well into her 70's. An attractive copy of the author's fourth hardcover book, and the only inscribed copy of this title we have seen or handled. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

This is one of his best collections consisting of stories for the most part published in The New Yorker from 1945 to 1947. He gives a glimpse and a memory into middle class white life, the things people thought about, the things they fretted and aimed for. It's the small detail at times that frames the atmosphere of the story. On the flyleaf, there's a explanation that Hellbox is a printer's receptacle for broken type." - OHara fan.. Signed by Author.
