        Five-decade photograph collection of an extended family living in the New York-Pennsylvania region near Binghamton

      New York and Pennsylvania, 1950. Five various-size volumes holding well over 1000 photographs of differing sizes. Many of the photographs are captioned on the page, in the margin, or on the reverse. About half of the images are attached with photo corners and half have been glued/pasted to the pages. Most are in nice shape; some have creases or tape mends. Four of the albums are in good shape with some minor wear; the fifth is missing its front cover and the first page has been taped in place. This is an impressive collection of images that record changes within an American community over the first 50 years of the 20th century. The somewhat chronologically-organized albums were compiled by the Kase and Speer family and primarily consist of photographs from area surrounding Binghamton, New York, and Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. All manner of family life is depicted including home scenes, cabins, family members, pets, school, vacations, soldiers and marines, hunting, fishing, boating, swimming, barnyard animals and farm equipment, shops, wagons, horses, buggies and sleighs, bicycles and vehicles, snowstorms, etc. Highlights include * many motorcycle photos from the 1910s (Harley-Davidson, Dayton, sidecar); * many military photos including World War One (several of soldiers outside Walter Reed Army Hospital, several of a victory parade including one with a Holt Mark II tracked 155mm howitzer and one with President Wilson walking in a top hat and overcoat), between the wars (several of the 23rd Cavalry Division on parade), and World War Two (one of Corporal Donald Speer working on a B-24 Liberator engine); * a circa-1915 Boy Scout; * an interracial picnic, * two photos of Adams Express wagons in front of a store; * three photos of a train wreck at Catawissa, Pennsylvania; * a wagon caught in a flood at Castle Creek, New York; * the start of the 1916 marathon at Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania; * and more.

        Collection of Autograph Letters to Marcel Mihalovici

      1950. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. An interesting collection of nine autograph letters, 1950 - 1974,  from the important 20th-century Italian composer to the Romanian-French composer Marcel Mihalovici. Dallapiccola thanks Mihalovici for sending him the score to "Phèdre"; regrets that he was not able to hear the radio because of poor reception; hopes to see and hear him in Paris; brings up the composition of "Prisonnier" ("Un grand scandale est à prévoir..."); informs him that the O.R.T.F will not record[?] "Ulysse"; invites him to Florence; sends a small work ("Sicut umbra..." qui - peut-être - est un petit peu mon portrait"); reports on his busy life, etc. Also included is a TLS from Laure Dallapiccola dated April 12, 1968, concerning a missed rendez-vous when the composer was obliged to leave for a performance of "Ulysse" in Berlin. Various sizes and formats, most also with original transmissal envelopes (generally signed additionally). With Petrassi, Dallapiccola was the most significant Italian composer of his generation, wrote marvelous, lyrical 12-tone compositions full of impressionistic textures, two major operas (Il Prigoniero, Ulisse), and was teacher of Berio and Rands among other leading composers.

        Some Notes on No. 26

      San Francisco, CA: Three Fingers Press, 1950. Soft Cover. Very Good. 48mo - over 3" - 4" tall. Book shows a publication date of 1950, but it was actually released in 1951. Handcrafted, string bound, heavy card wrappers with 14 uncut leaves upon which are mounted a number of original photographs and ephemera relating to the Virginia and Truckee Railroad's heavy Ten-Wheeler locomotive, No. 26. Very nice shape. There are over 20 original photographs and significant pieces of ephemera that "have with loving care been gathered, collated, hand set, pasted, bound up and cursed into book form . . . on the first anniversary of the demise of V & T No. 26." The book includes a signed 3-page essay about the demise of small railroads and a description of the loss of the No. 26 in an engine-house fire in 1950. Photographs include images of the train at work as well as its flaming destruction. The ephemera includes a 1876 V&T bank check, a 1878 invoice, a timetable, and a bill of lading. The author was a mining engineer and research mineralogist who worked for the Aurora Creek Gold Mining Company and at Stanford University's School of Mineral Sciences, where he published a number of scholarly articles and monographs. A rabid rail fan, Beatty focused his hobby on the railroads of Nevada and Eastern California. Although unspecified, the distribution of this work was no doubt quite limited. Very scarce. As of 2016, no examples are listed in OCLC, no auction records are reported by ABPC or Rare Book Hub, and only one other copy is for sale (for $2,000) in the trade.

A collector's copy of this transitional voice in American Literature. Tight and gently read once. This book proves that Kerouac could write in traditional style while still interjecting the melodic driven prose which lay beneath the surface of this original American voice. "Anne for her part simply dribbled away from her husband's home in Boston in small installments, without apologies, almost without scene, leaving the earnest dogged dentist with the feeling that he had married some sort of ghost that eventually vanished from his life."

Original printed blue wrappers. The famous British explorer's extensive account of his expedition in the interior of Oman; much of the territory crossed now is part of the United Arab Emirates. Thesiger (1910-2003) set out from Abu Dhabi in 1948; the large and detailed colour map shows his journeys from 1945 to 1950. Thesiger later expanded on the subject to produce his classic travelogue, "Arabian Sands" (1959). Thesiger's highly regarded photographs depict the desert of the Empty Quarter, a settlement at Liwa, sand vegetation after heavy rain, a falconer mounted on a camel, a peregrine falcon with a caught hare, peregrine falcons on the blocks, Sheikh Wahiba of Yahahif and a young Wahiba girl, a thoroughbred Batina camel, the Farai well in Wahib country, portraits of Musallim bin al-Kamam and Salim bin Kabina, and a view of Jabal Kaur from the wadi Saifam. The paper was read in the presence of the Second Secretary at the Saudi Arabian Embassy, H.E. Abdul Rahman Halassie. Not in Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula.

      1950s]. 1950 - 55 original photographs, measuring 24,5x18,5cm or larger, loosely monted on black boards, very good condition. N.p., n.d. [but Okinawa, ca. An extremely interesting collection of professional photographs of Okinawa in the early phases of the American occupation. Okinawan infrastructure was devastated in the later stages of WWII, especially destructive was the Battle of Okinawa of 1945, in which more human life was lost than in both the atomic bombings combined. The redevelopment of Okinawa under the Occupation was slow to begin with, but accelerated significantly during the Cold War, in particular after the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950. The present collection oscillates between modernity and timelessness in its depiction of aspects of life in Okinawa during this period. They show newly built houses and other buildings, piles of bricks and timbers, and scaffolding either appearing boldly in the foreground, or subtly in the background. There is one particularly striking image of workers resurfacing a road, the motion captured and depth of contrast creates a wonderful photo. The Occupation itself is also shown - through Okinawan conscripts in the U.S. military, a plane flying over the heads of villagers, a military vehicle blocking a road, or a mother and baby looking out to the nearby U.S. air base from their home. The majority of the images focus on the lives of the Okinawans in various industries - fishing, agriculture, or in the various hubs of activity, such as the markets. In an environment we know to be developing, and can see is modernising in terms of garb and housing, many of the photographs express a certain timelessness. The rawness and honesty captured in the photographs, as well as the significance of the historical moment they were captured in, makes this a fascinating collection. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
