        The Naked and the Dead

      Rinehart and company, Inc. New York, Toronto, (1948) The Naked and the Dead is a 1948 novel by Norman Mailer. It was partly based on his experiences[2] with the 112th Cavalry Regiment during the Philippines Campaign in World War II.[3] It was later adapted into a film of the same name in 1958.In 1998 the Modern Library ranked The Naked and the Dead 51st on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.The Naked and the Dead By Norman MailerPerhaps Mr. Mailer should not be damned for attempting to reduce by frontal assault what better writers have failed to win by infiltration. "The Naked and the Dead"--the story of an imaginary battle in the Pacific--trumpets his dusty answer to the brutality of modern war. Undoubtedly the most ambitious novel to be written about the recent conflict, it is also the most ruthlessly honest and in scope an integrity compares favorably with the best that followed World War I. Even in its repetitiousness, wordiness, and overanalysis of motive, it is a commanding performance by a young man of 25 whose gifts are impressive and whose failures are a matter of reach rather than grasp. (New York Times)Rinehart and Company, Inc. New York, Toronto, 1948, First Edition. This book is in Near Fine ++ condition with a Near Fine ++ DJ. The book is solid, tight and square,no bumped corners, The only blemish on this book is a round indentation, the size of a hole punch, right, bottom, back board ( See Photos). This book is a as clean and bright as the day it was published. The dj is bright, clean and shows no shelf wear. For this book to be in this condition is a beautiful and rare occurrance.

        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM DEPICTING EVENTS Of VISIT To UNITED STATES ARMY FORCES ANTILLES PRESENTED To VISITING ECUADORIAN ARMY OFFICERS. [Cover title]

      [Puerto Rico] 1948 - 32 leaves of black mounting paper, with 72 mounted b/w captioned [text in English & Spanish] photographs [71: 4-11/16" x 6-7/8"; 1: 9-3/4" x 7-3/4"]. 4 additional b/w "snapshots" laid-in, as are a number of Ecuadorian newspaper clippings & an Esso road map of Puerto Rico. The final leaf title "Autographs", with autographs of 6 military personnel. Album: 11" x 14" This photograph album presented as a souvenir from the U.S. Army's 504th Field Army Battlion in Puerto Rico to the visiting officers of the Ecuadorian Army, who were there in late June / early July of 1948. The photographs depict the field training received by those Ecuadorian officers, who were instructed in the use & operation of 105mm howitzer artillery. Also documented is the social interaction of the two groups, including ceremonies, luncheons, visits to historical sites, and even a tour of the Don Q Rum factory.While the exact impetus for this training visit is not detailed in the souvenir album, one can speculate that Ecuador's 1941 border dispute with Peru may have played some role in occassioning this training at the hands of the 504th. Front cover professionally reattached. Bit of flaking to front cover lettering. Very Good. Photographs clear & sharp. VG+ to Nr Fine.

        The Second World War, full set of six British first editions, finely bound in three-quarter red morocco

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. First edition, first printing. Leather bound. This is a full set of British first editions of The Second World War, finely bound and in beautiful condition. The bindings feature three-quarter red morocco over red cloth boards with generous leather corners, raised and gilt-ruled spine bands, lion rampant device in spine compartments, gilt rule transitions, head and foot bands, gilt top edges, and laid paper endsheets. Here is Churchill's history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. As with so much of what Churchill wrote, The Second World War is not "history" in the strictly academic, objectivist sense, but rather Churchill's perspective on history. In his March 1948 introduction to the first volume, Churchill himself made the disclaimer, "I do not describe it as history... it is a contribution to history..." Nonetheless the compelling fact remains, as stated by Churchill himself, "I am perhaps the only man who has passed through both the two supreme cataclysms of recorded history in high Cabinet office... I was for more than five years in this second struggle with Germany the Head of His Majesty's government. I write, therefore, from a different standpoint and with more authority than was possible in my earlier books." Certainly The Second World War may be regarded as an intensely personal and inherently biased history. Nonetheless, Churchill's work remains essential, iconic, and a vital part of the historical record. Richard Langworth calls the six-volume epic "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." British first editions were printed on post-war "Economy Standards" paper, bound in coarse cloth bindings that easily wear and mildew. A fine binding thus is an aesthetically appealing first edition alternative. This set features truly fine bindings with superior contents. The bindings show no appreciable wear, soiling or fading, and shelf appearance is superlative. The contents are crisp and bright for the edition. The spotting endemic to the edition is quite light and almost entirely confined to the otherwise clean fore edges. We find no previous ownership marks. The top edge gilt remains uniformly bright.

A stirring collection, carefully curated and prepared, possibly by an American soldier in occupied Japan, though possibly compiled earlier by a Japanese collector and later annotated, as manuscript notes appear in different hands, in both English letters and Japanese characters. .

Ce roman est celui de l'initiation de Minouche, une jeune vierge, par un vieux faune ardent Stro. "Tout en lui suçant le petit bouton entre ses lèvres, il introduisait onctueusement dans sa jeune valve toute juteuse de plaisir, un index farfouilleur qui vint explorer la précieuse membrane dont il estima en connaisseur la faible résistance. [.] Avec une savante délicatesse, il vint au plus près entre les cuisses de la belle, le membre bien dardé et en introduisit d'abord l'extrémité seule entre les grandes lèvres qu'il caressa ainsi de haut en bas, en pénétrant peu à peu dans la profondeur même du vagin, jusqu'à se retrouver contre le précieux barrage de la virginité. - Le voilà donc ce charmant pucelage que nous allons forcer, dit-il [.] il se mit à pistonner doucement, dans la partie libre de la valve, tout en caressant de ses paumes les beaux galbes du ventre et des cuisses, des genoux polis, des seins et des flancs où déjà se préparait la voluptueuse montée ver le divin délire." (extrait) Minouche s'initie petit à petit, au fil des pages, à tous les plaisirs de la chair . de spasmes en spasmes . Personne, semble-t-il, n'a réussi à mettre un nom sur le pseudonyme "De Voulonges" de l'auteur ni identifier la jolie main de l'artiste-illustrateur tout à fait remarquable tout au long des 26 eaux-fortes en couleurs qui ornent ce délicieux volume. Ce volume publié clandestinement, est une vraie réussite érotico-bibliophilique. BEL EXEMPLAIRE, TEL QUE PARU. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A framed copy of the most iconic error in newspaper history: "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN"

      Chicago, Illinois, November 3, 1948. 15.5" x 11". "The front page of the Chicago Daily Tribune for November 3, 1948 bearing the infamous headline across the top: ""DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN"", 15.5"" x 11"" (visible). Simply matted and framed to 22"" x 17"". Not examined out of frame. On election night, an early deadline compelled the editors of the Chicago Daily Tribune to go to press before the polls had closed in many states on the East Coast. With incomplete data, the editors relied on the wisdom of their Washington correspondent Arthur Sears Henning, who, like most political analysts, predicted Dewey would win the election of 1948. Despite later returns which indicated a much closer race, Henning stuck to his original analysis as thousands of issues rolled off the Tribune's presses. When returns had clearly indicated that Truman had won the election, the President, in a moment captured by AP photographer Byron Rollins, gleefully held one of the mistaken headlines aloft in celebration. It was only later in the night that the editors, challenged with fresh information showing Truman winning, changed the paper's headline to: ""DEMOCRATS MAKE SWEEP OF STATE OFFICES."" Years later, the editors of the Tribune who could now laugh at the gaffe, decided to present Truman with a plaque with a replica of the paper on the 25th anniversary of the election. Sadly, Truman died before the the editors could present it to him."
