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

      [Puerto Rico], 1948. 1st Edition. Red vinyl album, with title lettering in yellow script to front board. Red cord tie. Front cover professionally reattached. Bit of flaking to front cover lettering. Very Good. Photographs clear & sharp. VG+ to Nr Fine.. 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.

There is great value in the experience of senior members - but there is also danger in accumulated experience, as a force that preserves and freezes in place, if it is not tied to a soaring vision, an ability to discern the future and initiative. These characteristics are generally found among younger people, and there is a need for a living movement that will merge the life experience of the older people with the revitalized spirit of the younger ones.""I do not know whether it is yet time to nominate candidates and whether I will have any opportunity at all to deal with the matter, but I absolutely support the opinion you expressed in your letter.

      Amsterdam, G.A. van Oorschot, (1948). Ingenaaid. 56 p. 1e druk. Omslag licht beschadigd.* Uit de bibliotheek van Gerard Kornelis van het Reve, die begin 1949 op de Franse titel met potlood allerlei vermenigvuldigingen en staartdelingen uitvoerde. Vermoedelijk rekende Reve met behulp van deze uitgave uit hoeveel woorden hij nodig had voor de in dezelfde reeks te verschijnen novelle Werther Nieland. Berekeningen als '9,5 woord per regel/ 36 regels per pagina/ 58 pagina's tekst' en 'geschreven: 14 woord per regel/ 50 regels per bladz' leidden uiteindelijk tot de conclusie 'Ik moet dus leveren [...]'.Mooie illustratie van de moeizame totstandkoming van Reve's novelle, die in druk 70 pagina's zou omvatten. Dit vroege document zou niet misstaan in een vitrine van het Gerard Revemuseum in de OBA. In De Vrije Bladen: jaargang 19, schrift 10.Bijgevoegd: REVE, Gerard Werther Nieland. Amsterdam, Van Oorschot, 1949. Ingenaaid. 72 p. 1e druk. Rug minimaal verbruind.* De Vrije Bladen, jaargang 21, schrift 3.

In the 1950s, Wood made a number of low-budget science-fiction, horror, and cowboy genre films, intercutting stock footage. In the 1960s and 1970s, he made sexploitation movies and wrote over 80 pulp-crime, horror, and sex novels. In 1980 he was posthumously awarded a Golden Turkey Award as Worst Director of All Time, renewing public interest in his work. Wood's unsuccessful career and camp approach has earned him and his films a cult following.ÑWikipedia Among Edward Woods notable movies: Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959), Jail Bait (1954), Bride of the Monster (1955), and Glen or Glenda (1953). Wood's legacy and cult following lives on with, for example, the University of Southern California holding an annual "Ed Wood Film Festival" for which students are charged with writing, filming, and editing an Ed Wood-esque short film based on a predetermined theme. His movies has been spoofed on Mystery Theater 3000 and many have been remade as pornographic movies. Additionally, many of his bizarre transvestite-themed sex novels have been republished.Ñbio. 2013 A+E Networks [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
