        Congressman Kennedy uses his influence to obtain a shore assignment for a fellow veteran of the Solomon Island campaign where JFK gained renown for his exploits saving the crew of PT-109

      "Typed Letter Signed, ""John Kennedy,"" as United States Representative, 1 page, 7.75"" x 10.5"" on his congressional letterhead, Washington, March 21, 1950 to John H. Artesani, a specialist aboard the U.S.S. Shenandoah responding to a request a shore duty assignment. Usual folds, small toned spot at left margin not affecting text, else very good. Kennedy writes in full: ""Further reference is made to your desire to secure an assignment to shore duty with the United States Navy. I am enclosing, herewith, a copy of the letter [not present] I have just received from Captain W. O. Burch, Head of the Enlisted Detailing Section of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, Department of the Navy, Washington 25, D.C., which speaks for itself. I have contacted the Commander, Service Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, in your behalf, and shall keep you posted as to the results of my efforts in that direction."" Artesani (1926-2010), a Boston native, enlisted in the Navy in November 1942 and served on several ships including the U.S.S. O'Bannon, a Fletcher-class destroyer that served in the Solomon Islands at the same time Kennedy was commanding PT-109. In a twist of fate of which Kennedy was most likely unaware, Artesani's ship, the O'Bannon fought in the Battle of Kolombangara (July 12-13, 1943) which, although a tactical victory for the Japanese, proved to be a strategic loss as it forced their naval resupply ships (popularly known as the ""Tokyo Express"") to begin using the narrow Blackett Strait. In response, the U.S. Navy deployed torpedo boats (including Kennedy's) to harass Japanese ships plying the narrow strait between Kolombangara and Arundel Islands. On the night of August 2, the Japanese destroyer, Amagiri, returning from a resupply mission, rammed PT-109, splitting the craft in two. Artesani, aboard the O'Bannon, was more than likely within 50 miles of Kennedy when this occurred, as the destroyer was patrolling the nearby Vella Gulf. Kennedy's bravery in saving his crew garnered him national celebrity and in no small part launched his political career. The O'Bannon later served in the Philippines including engagements at Leyte Gulf, Bataan, Corregidor, and Cebu. The O'Bannon also had the honor of being one of the escorts for the U.S.S. Missouri when she entered Tokyo Bay in September 1945 in preparation for the Japanese surrender ceremonies. (Muster rolls of U.S. Navy ships, stations, and other naval activities, 1939-1949.)"

        THE DROWNING POOL

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1950 - Octavo, boards. The second Lew Archer novel. "A noirish, centrifugal amorality pervades Archer's world and The Drowning Pool does not conclude nicely or neatly.

Basis for the Paul Newman film, the second in which he plays the Archer character, renamed Harper. Pederson (ed.), St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers, (4th ed.), pp. 676-678.

        Marilyn Monroe boldly signs an attractive early contract for her appearance in a movie

      "Document Signed, ""Marilyn Monroe,"" two pages, 8.5"" x 21.5"", [Beverly Hills, California], January 5, 1950, a yellow Screen Actors Guild freelance contract between Monroe and Thor Productions for her appearance as the character ""Polly"" in the 1950 film, The Fireball starring Mickey Rooney and Pat O'Brien (described in this document under the working title, ""Dark Challenge""). Countersigned by producer, ""Bert Friedlob"". File holes at top, light soiling at margins, horizontal crease, else very good to fine condition. The Fireball was the story of an orphan, ""Johnny"" (played by Rooney), who runs away from Father O'Hara's orphanage to become a roller-skating star. As his fame rises, he is chased by numerous women (including Polly) who he realizes love him only for his fame. Johnny then contracts polio and spends the balance of the film recovering. Monroe signed the contract at a relatively low point in her career. Just the year before, financial concerns prompted her to pose nude for a photo session. However, soon after The Fireball's release, Monroe's career began to gain momentum and she began booking roles in more serious films. That same year she auditioned for John Huston who cast her in Asphalt Jungle. Her performance brought strong reviews, as well as the the notice of Joseph Mankiewicz, who cast Monroe in All About Eve."

The title is derived from the last words of Confederate General Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson.The novel opens on the last day of Colonel Richard Cantwell's life. He is duck hunting in Trieste, Italy, his thoughts presented in a protracted flashback, with Cantwell thinking about a young Venetian woman, Renata, and about his experiences during World War II. Not long before writing the novel during a trip to Italy, Hemingway met young Adriana Ivancich, with whom he became infatuated; he used her as the model for the female character in the novel. The novel's central theme is death, and, more importantly, how death is faced. One biographer and critic sees a parallel between Hemingway's Across the River and Into the Trees and Thomas Mann's Death in Venice. The novel is built upon successive layers of symbolism, as in his other writing, Hemingway employs here his distinctive spare style (the iceberg theory), where the substance lies below the surface of the plot.Background:Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 ?" July 2, 1961) was an American author and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works. Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature.Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home. His wartime experiences formed the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms (1929).Condition:Condition is Very Good.  Some wear to edges of jacket, pages/hinges/text block are very good/excellent for over 60 years old!!!

        Deux aquarelles sans titre [Domination par lavement et anulinctus]

      1950 - 2 Aquarelles originales, 25 x 36 cm [35 x 33 inch], non signées, sur papier à dessin, présentant un dyptique dans une salle de bain, le placard entrouvert, au-dessus de l&#146;évier, contient une poire à lavement. Le premier dessin représente une femme dominante en nuisette de soie noire et bas nylon, tenant un bock à lavement rempli et le bout d&#146;une canule, dévisageant un adolescent agenouillé devant elle, et commençant à détacher la ceinture de son pantalon. Dans le second dessin, la femme a relevé sa nuisette pour offrir ses fesses au garçon qui lui prodigue un anulinctus ; il a enlevé son pantalon, a gardé chaussettes et chaussures et se masturbe tandis qu&#146;il subit en même temps le lavement, la canule enfoncée en lui et le broc tenue bien droit en hauteur par la femme. Depuis 2000, le web a reproduit plus de 300 aquarelles aux teintes pastel de ce genre, du même artiste anonyme (aucune n&#146;est signée). Les amateurs se perdent en conjectures sur leur origine et l&#146;identité du dessinateur, au style très élégant et développant des thématiques de domination féminine lesbienne ou sur de frêles adolescents, à base essentiellement de lavements, mais aussi de zoophilie, de fétichisme callipyge, de masturbation, de fessées et de féminisation. Des hypothèses non sourcées &#150; ou sur la base de documents douteux &#150; avancent le nom d&#146;une « Julie Delcourt » qui serait une artiste française des années 30, ou bien un Allemand du nom de « Gaggleman », voire de « Hegemann », pourtant très éloigné du style connu de Richard Hegemann qui dessinait dans les années 20. On parle d&#146;une commande privée exécutée par un Berlinois pour un riche amateur américain On peut tout au plus tenter de dater ces dessins dans le courant des années 50, début années 60, par l&#146;étude des décors, costumes et coiffures. Les femmes altières, qui évoquent plus les pin-up d&#146;après-guerre que leurs consoeurs des années 30, portent des bas sans jarretelles, bas nylon et bas-coutures. Une inscription au crayon au bas du verso du dessin avec un nom (Vora ?) et un numéro qui n&#146;éclairent pas plus la mystérieuse identité de ce remarquable artiste. VERY GOOD CONDITIONS. ORIGINAL ARTWORKS BY A FAMOUS AND UNKNOWN FEMDOM ARTIST, CIRCA 1950. (c) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
