        Anthony McAuliffe

      May 27, [1947]. Rare early Autograph Letter Signed <I>“Tony,”</I> two full pages, 8” x 10.5”, front and verso. Washington, D.C., May 27. With original envelope postmarked Washington, D.C., May 27, 1947. Addressed by McAuliffe to <I>“Gen. Rex Chandler, / 204 Crescent Ave, / San Antonio, / Tex,”</I> marked <I>”Air Mail,”</I> signed <I>“McAuliffe”</I> in the upper left above printed return address. On letterhead of <I>“The Joint Research and Development Board / Washington 25, D.C.”</I> Fine condition.<br /><br />Before World War II, Anthony McAuliffe and Rex Chandler (1901-1964) were Captains, First Field Artillery, stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Chandler was promoted to Brigadier General in early 1945. Brigadier General McAuliffe parachuted into Normandy on D-Day on June 6, 1944. He replied “Nuts!” to a formal German surrender ultimatum six months later on December 22, 1944. On February 3, 1945, the 1st Cavalry Division commanded by Brig. Gen. Chandler advanced into Manila, beginning the battle which ended almost three years of Japanese military occupation in the Philippines and led to Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s promised return.<br /><br />On March 7, 1946, the War Department made public the list of 212 officers whose temporary appointments as Generals had been ended in line with the Army’s cut in General officer strength. As published in “The New York Times” on March 8, 1946, the list of 54 who were “Reduced to the temporary grade of colonel, effective March 6” included “Rex E. Chandler.” Chandler, addressed as “Gen. Rex Chandler” by McAuliffe on the envelope, evidently wrote to McAuliffe about retiring as a Brigadier General which would, of course, mean a higher pension.<br /><br />In full, “When I got home last night, I found your letter. I did get busy as soon as I returned from San Antonio. All those to whom I talked gave me the same answer, that Sec. 7 of Pub. Law 101, to which you refer in your letter, prevents retirement in the higher grade if application is made later than six months after reduction. I discussed your case with a number of people; several of whom know you well and displayed a keen personal interest; namely, Cal Smith, the authority in Paul’s office on retirements & Jack Suman, authority in the same field for AGF. I am told that Eisenhower has taken a personal interest in an identical case, the Cg of local Gables Hospital; Beck, I believe. The Chief has been told that he cannot legally retire him as a B.G.” General of the Army Dwight S. Eisenhower served as Chief of Staff of the Army from November 19, 1945 to February 6, 1948.<br /><br />McAuliffe continues, “Cal Smith testified yesterday on the Army list to retire all in their highest wartime grades. He thinks it is a cinch to pass. The Navy already has it. Your case had been acted on before I got back to the office on May 6th. However, if there is any way to get around that Sec. 7, people here would like to know it, as they have several deserving cases. If you have a suggestion, please write me again. I know the whole crowd here and all are most sympathetic and sincerely desirous of finding a solution. Will return your papers, which I left at home. Helen & Pat join me in love to you all. Yours, Tony.” Chandler retired in 1947.<br />

        Neve a Clavière (1947)

      Olio/cartone, cm 50x64 olio su cartone. Opera firmata e intitolata al retro. Autentica di Enrico Paulucci in data 8/1/1980 Già Galleria e Libreria d'Arte La Bussola, Torino (etichetta al retro), 1947. . Carlo Levi (Torino, 29 novembre 1902 – Roma, 4 gennaio 1975) è stato uno scrittore, pittore, politico e antifascista italiano, tra i più significativi narratori del Novecento. La profonda amicizia e l'assidua frequentazione di Felice Casorati orientano la prima attività artistica del giovane Levi, con le opere pittoriche Ritratto del padre (1923) e il levigato nudo di Arcadia, con il quale partecipa alla Biennale di Venezia del 1924. Dopo altri soggiorni a Parigi, dove aveva mantenuto uno studio, la sua pittura, influenzata dalla Scuola di Parigi, subisce un ulteriore cambiamento stilistico, proseguito poi con la conoscenza, tra il 1929 e il 1930, di Modigliani. Con il sostegno di Edoardo Persico e Lionello Venturi, alla fine del 1928 prende parte al movimento pittorico cosiddetto dei sei pittori di Torino, insieme a Gigi Chessa, Nicola Galante, Francesco Menzio, Enrico Paulucci e Jessie Boswell, che lo porterà a esporre in diverse città in Italia e anche in Europa (Genova, Milano, Roma, Londra, Parigi). Levi, per una precisa posizione culturale coerente con le sue idee, considerava espressione di libertà la pittura, in contrapposizione non solo formale, ma anche sostanziale alla retorica dell'arte ufficiale, secondo lui sempre più sottomessa al conformismo del regime fascista e al modernismo ipocrita del movimento futurista..

        William Douglas

      May 22, 1947. Autograph Letter Signed “Bill” as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, on both sides of a Supreme Court card, 4.25” x 3.5”. Washington, D.C., May 22, 1947. Light paper clip mark and slight smudge on one word. With original postmarked Supreme Court envelope, 4.5” x 3.5”, torn open at top, addressed by Douglas to “Barnet Nover, Esq / Washington Post / Wash DC.” Fine condition.<br /><br />In full, <I>“Dear Barney, That was another magnificent piece you wrote the other day – on the D.P s of Europe. It’s the best statement and analysis of the problem I have seen. What we forget is that a policy of inaction can be as vicious and destructive as any of Hitler’s well-laid plans. Our innocence can do great damage.”</I><br /><br />From 1936-1947, Barnet Nover (1899-1974) was a columnist and an editorial writer for “The Washington Post,” becoming Washington bureau chief of “The Denver Post” in 1947, a position he held until his retirement in 1971.<br /><br />Included is a photocopy of Barnet Nover’s “Human Challenge” column from the May 20, 1947, edition of “The Washington Post,” titled “The United States And the DP’s.”<br /><br />In part, <I>“In displaced persons’ camps in Germany, Austria and Italy are approximately 900,000 men, women and children who, two years after the war, still await their liberation. For those unfortunates the war goes on. To them VE-Day represents the bitter memory of a terrible deception. The Allied victory in Europe was followed in a relatively short time by the fleeing from German captivity of many millions of Frenchmen, Russians, Belgians, Dutchmen, Norwegians, Poles and others who, during the years of Hitler’s domination of Europe, had been made slaves of the Nazi war machine … the 900,000 still left in DP camps represent the hard core of what, in the jargon of Military Government, are called the non-repatriables. They are the individuals who have no homes to go to, no country they can call their own.”</I><br /><br />Nover continued, <I>“About 20 per cent of the 900,000 are Jews, the surviving remnant who managed to surmount the tortures of the Gestapo and escape the crematoriums of Himmler’s SS. The one burning desire of most of them is to escape from the charnel house of Europe, preferably to Palestine. Of the remaining 80 per cent, the great majority are Poles and Balts – the Lithuanians, Estonians, Latvians – who, for understandable reasons have resisted every effort to get them to go back to their native lands. The United States, for the soundest of humanitarian reasons has supported their refusal to be repatriated. There can be little doubt that repatriation in many cases would mean death or at least imprisonment … Until June 30, the DP’s are, in effect, the wards of the armies of occupation and of UNRRA. On that day UNRRA passes out of the picture and is to be replaced by the International Refugee Organization which was set up at the last regular meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.<br /><br />“I.R.O. will not actually come into being and begin to function unless and until … funds have been appropriated by the members,” wrote Nover. “This means, in effect, that the I.R.O. will remain a paper organization until the United States has agreed to pay its share - $73,500,000 – which, incidentally, is just over half the sum we are spending annually for the maintenance and provisioning of the camps in our zones in Germany and Austria. Purely on practical grounds of economy, therefore, it is of the utmost importance that Congress act speedily to vote the necessary appropriations. Once it has done that, however, it cannot rest on its oars, comforted in the happy feeling that once again the United States has demonstrated its humanitarian concern with less fortunate individuals … The permanent solution must be to find new homes for the displaced…<br /><br />“There is a bill now before the House ... introduced by Representative William G. Stratton, Republican member from Illinois … Mr. Stratton would authorize the admission into the United States, outside the quota, of 400,000 displaced people over the next four years. Certainly a nation of 140 million can afford to provide a haven for so tiny an addition to American population …”</I><br /><br />Nover concluded, <I>“The enactment of the Stratton bill is the very least we can do to help solve a problem whose existence is a blot on our vaunted civilization. Failure to take constructive action on the DP problem will subject the United States to the charge that our professions of democracy and humanitarianism are the veriest mockery.”</I><br />

        Knizhka malyshke [A little book for a little kid]

      München-Schleissheim: Zlatoust (Russkoe Zarubezhnoe Izdatel'stvo), 1947. Oblong octavo (20.5 × 14 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 40 pp. Publisher's device to rear wrapper and numerous small black-and-white drawings throughout. About very good; some rust to staples and light wear to spine extremities. Rare anthology of Russian children's verse published by this publishing house of the Russian "displaced persons" (DP) camp Schleissheim, in the American occupied zone of Germany. Both the editor of the book, A. Kudriavtseva, and the illustrator, Robert Shlykevich, were likely displaced persons (nothing is known about them). The book consists of poems by a range of Russian authors, including Agniia Barto, who went on to win the Stalin Prize in 1949 for her work. Others represented in the book include: the nineteenth-century poet K. A. Peterson; Korney Chukovsky, a popular children's writer; and Sasha Chernyi, a Silver Age poet, children's author, and satirist, who emigrated after the Russian Revolution. Interestingly, in some instances the poems vary slightly from other versions of the well-known verse. For example, in Barto's "Snegir'" (1939) the first line is changed from "on the Arbat" (the famous boulevard in Moscow) to the more generic "on the prospect". The DP publisher Zlatoust was founded in 1946 and had anti-communist leanings; it published political works as well as children's literature, translations, high liter- ature and more popular books such as detective novels. Rare, with no copies in KVK, OCLC; not at the Russian State or National Library.

Cloth a bit flecked at edges, some foxing to endsheets and edges, some occasional dark marginal spotting to early leaves, but a sound copy in heavily worn dust jacket.

        POEMS BY SAMUEL GREENBERG

      Henry Hold and Company (1947), New York - Preface by Allen Tate. Elizabeth Bishop's copy SIGNED by her on the front endpaper. In a letter to Robert Lowell dated 27 June 1950 Bishop writes of THIS book: "I spent most of the weekend reading Samuel Greenberg--have you? I got so mad at the introductions, particularly Tate's--and if you haven't read the poems I recommend them highly. He was certainly one of the finest poetic characters I know anything about, and phrases are magnificent--and no critic has ever apparently appreciated either at their real value" (ONE ART: ELIZABETH BISHOP'S LETTERS, p. 204). In another letter to Robert Lowell dated August 1950, Bishop writes: "I'm reading The 'Green Huntsman' and it's marvelous--also just finished Samuel Greenberg and Isaac Rosenberg who have many strange points in common" (WORDS IN AIR: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE OF ELIZABETH BISHOP AND ROBERT LOWELL). Clearly even two months later this book was still in the forefront of Bishop's mind. While we have handled several copies of Bishop's books signed by her as well as correspondence, this is the first book from the poet's library that we have encountered. It appears, also, to be a book that had some influence on Bishop's development as a poet. Greenberg was also a huge influence on the poet Hart Crane, who first read Greenberg in manuscript. Crane was so taken by Greenberg, he lifted entire lines for his own poems. The cloth was damaged by water at some point with the result that it is discolored. There is only slight water damage to the dustwrapper. Still Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        INTO THE NIGHT LIFE. (Inscribed and signed by Henry Miller and Bezalel "Lilik" Schatz).

      [Berkeley: Henry Miller & Bezalel Schatz, 1947]. Large quarto (14.5 x 12 inches), [86] pp., text (reproducing Henry Miller's cursive hand) and color illustrations by Bezalel Schatz are reproduced in serigraph (silkscreen); bound in blue cloth with silkscreen decoration and red felt patch on front board, spine lettered in black, slipcase. The concept for this production was that of Palestinian artist Bezalel (Lilik) Schatz who, desiring to produce enlisted Henry Miller as textual collaborator. The text used is from Miller's "Black Spring." The book was printed entirely by Bezalel Schatz at his Berkeley home/studio over a period of 16 months. 800 copies were printed, but according to Shifreen & Jackson's Bibliography of Henry Miller "somewhat less than 200 copies" were bound up for sale in 1947. From the stored first edition sheets and binding materials, approximately 20-25 copies were issued in 1971 and another 190 were issued in 1977, while "Approximately 400 of the original 600 sets of sheets stored in Miller's closet were destroyed by 'worms' [also described by Miller as 'rats and fungus'." The 1977 copies were essentially those that could be salvaged and most exhibit small wormholes "on approximately 20% of the pages." Again referring to Shifreen & Jackson, among other points of identification, the primary difference between the first issue and the later ones is the absence of spine title lettering on the 2 later issues. Issued copies were signed and numbered in the colophon and S & J note that first issue copies have been seen "numbered through at least copy No. 164 . . ." The bibliographers make no statement concerning the numbering of the second issue, but the third issue copies were "numbered in the low 200's to the upper 300's." Which brings us to speculate that our copy - bearing all the first issue points but numbered in the colophon "This is copy #800" when coupled with Henry Miller's cryptic inscription on the front free endpaper: "For Theodore Bernardi who believes that the last shall come first - Bravo! (signed) Henry Miller" - was actually the first copy issued. Bezalel Schatz has also inscribed to the SF Bay Area architect and lecturer at UCB Theodore Bernardi (1903-1990): "For Theodore, a wonderful man and great architect, with warm friendship. Lilik, Berkeley." Shifreen & Jackson A60a. Slight fading to spine, rubbing to spine foot, slipcase recovered in style of original materials.

        On the Interaction Between Neutrons and Electrons

      The Physical Review, [ Lancaster, PA ] 1947 - First Edition. 1139-1146 pages. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches (8vo). Original green printed wrappers. Offprint from The Physical Review, Vol 72, No 12, pp. 1139-1146, December 15, 1947. A touch of fading to the edges, otherwise a fine copy. Wraps. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 was awarded to Enrico Fermi "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons". (Nobel site)"The possible existence of a potential interaction between neutron and electron has been investigated by examining the asymmetry of thermal neutron scattering from xenon." (abstract) "When the neutron experiments were at the end of their obvious and interesting extension, Leona Marshall and Fermi sat down and discussed the various possible neutron interactions. Mrs. Marshall recalls that her suggestion and urging led to the experiment on neutron-electron interaction (in xenon gas) described in this paper. The result was negative, but with a limit of error smaller than the magnitude of the effect which they estimated from meson theory. They were not aware of the interaction between the Pauli moment and the electric field of the electron, discovered only later by Foldy." (H. L. Anderson in the Collected Papers of Enrico Fermi Vol II)."Leona Woods [Marshall] was 23 in 1942, the only woman present when Enrico Fermi's nuclear pile at the University of Chicago went critical and into the history books. She moved to Hanford in 1944 with her husband, fellow physicist John Marshall. Mrs. Libby was one of the few women scientists in the Manhattan Project and probably the most well known." (Voices of the Manhattan Project). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
