        THE STORY OF JAPANESE RAW SILK. [Told in Forty-Seven Original Photographs]

      Tokyo:: Japanese Government Raw Silk Bureau,, 1947. Very Good++. Very Good++ album with original color patterned silk covered boards, string tied on the left as issued. Cover edge wear. The album contains forty-seven 4.3" by 6.3" original black & white photographs mounted one to a page on thick boards using corner mounts (photographs removable). Each page numbered and with corresponding numbered figure legend in English. The photographs themselves are Fine though there is some foxing to a few of the mounting boards. Note is made on the title page of a "foreword and explanation". The explanations appear to be the figure legends. There are no remnants or other evidence of missing pages. The 47 photographs trace the story of Japanese silk from "Silkworm Moths hatching and drying their wings" through "Silkworms spinning Cocoons" & "Making a skein [of silk]" finally to "Raw silk being loaded on ship for export". A unique production presented to General Daniel Noce, Chief of the Civil Affairs Division under General MacArthur with his name on the title page. No copies are located in OCLC or Via Libri. The album dates from circa 1947-1948 and likely was given to General Noce for his efforts in promoting Japanese economic development through trade. The story told through images is an important window into the state of Japanese industry and technology in the immediate post-war period. Oblong. 10.6" by 14.2". 47 Numbered Photographs. Rare.

Dear Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging letter. (followed by the handwritten) Yours is one of the nicest I've had. The rime, the river, and the gaggle of geese will remain long in my mind. Do you really call them gaggles in Canada or were you making a conscious archaism! No matter. yours sincerely, C.S.Lewis The identity of Miss Hunt is unknown at this time, but perhaps she had sent Lewis a letter in verse that included 'a river and a gaggle of geese' (?) that seemed to amuse him and have him question the use of the word 'gaggle'. The envelope has been roughly opened along the top and the note paper has been folded once in half. Other photos available if required..

        The Long Pursuit

      New York: Rinehart, 1947. First Edition. Satirical novel about an American radio troupe touring post-war Germany as part of a USO tour, drawing heavily on Freeman's own experience as a writer for the popular radio quiz show Information Please. The lengthy inscription is to American Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, who at this time would have been just seventeen years old. The connection between Sondheim and Freeman is unclear, but it is certainly plausible that they could have encountered one another - either through upper class New York circles, in which both traveled; or through the progressive preparatory school Sondheim attended (Fieldston School); or through mutual acquaintances on Broadway, where Sondheim at this time was working his first job in show-business, as a production assistant on Rodgers & Hammerstein's Allegro. Sondheim's name does not appear in the finding aid to Freeman's archives at the Hoover Institution. Octavo (21cm). Black cloth boards, lettered in gilt; dustjacket; 310pp. Warmly and lengthily inscribed to a young Stephen Sondheim in year of publication: "To Stephen Sondheim: novelist and musician - With all good wishes," followed by a lengthy quotation from Proust's The Past Recaptured. Bottom board edges rubbed; abrasions along front and rear joints (external); otherwise just light wear, in the original, unclipped dustwrapper, Very Good.

        Photography from the V-2 rocket at altitudes ranging up to 160 kilometers

      Naval Research Laboratory Washington DC: Naval Research Laboratory, 1947. The First Published Photographs of the Earth Taken from Space Bergstralh, T. A. Photography from the V-2 rocket at altitudes ranging up to 160 kilometers. N. R. L. report no. R-3083. [ii]-vi, 25pp., 12 original photographic prints included in pagination. 1 sheet of printed Library of Congress catalogue cards laid in. Washington, DC: Naval Research Laboratory, April 1947. 265 x 204 mm. Original printed wrappers, cloth backstrip, small marginal tear in front cover; boxed. Fine copy, one of only 47 produced. First Edition of the first published photographs of the Earth from space?the first photographs to show the earth?s curvature Extremely rare?the distribution list on p. iii of Bergstralh?s report indicates that only 47 copies were prepared for various military, academic and private research institutions. The photographs, which show a large portion of the American southwest, were taken from cameras mounted on a V-2 rocket launched from the proving ground at White Sands, New Mexico. The rocket, which bore the number 21 but was the 20th V-2 launched at White Sands after number 1 misfired, was one of over 60 V-2 rockets captured from the Germans at the end of World War II in 1945. At that time the German rocketry program was at least 20 years ahead of any other such program in the developed world. As part of Project Paperclip, the United States government brought both the captured V-2s and over 100 German rocketry experts (headed by Wernher von Braun) to America, where they began what is now the U. S. space program. In 1946 the Upper Atmosphere Research Panel (also known as the V-2 panel) was formed to oversee a program of high-altitude experiments conducted using the V-2 rockets. On October 24, 1946 the research team was able to obtain photographs of the Earth taken from 65 miles above the surface; however, these photographs were not published until 1950 (see Newell, High Altitude Rocket Research p. 288). The present report announces that photographs were taken from more than 100 miles above the earth. ?On 7 March 1947 the twentieth V-2 to be launched in America took to the air from the Army Ordnance Proving Ground at White Sands, New Mexico. As on several of the previous flights, an attempt was made to obtain photographs of the features of interest on the rocket and, of course, of the earth. In this attempt the effort met with considerable success. Included among the group of pictures obtained are the first ever to be taken from altitudes greater than 160 kilometers (100 miles). The quality of the photographs is fairly good. For the first time, in pictures taken at such high altitudes, it is possible to recognize clearly many geographical features. In addition a large number and variety of cloud formations were recorded by the cameras and other information of meteorological value? (p. 1). Photographs 11 and 12 are especially notable. Number 11 includes an overlay showing landmarks in New Mexico, Arizona and the Gulf of California. The caption to number 12 states that ?this picture covers approximately 500,000 square miles of southwestern United States and northern Mexico. The photographs [making up the composite] do not match exactly due to the varying camera angles.? Newell, High Altitude Rocket Research (1953), pp. 284-288.
