        Banater Schwaben in Südfrankreich [ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS]

      NP ca. 1955-1965 - 3 volumes. Folio. 97 (of 98) original glossy b/w photographs by Leif Geiges, tipped-in on heavy card stock & bound in bolted green cloth. The photographs document the settlement of the Banat Swabians from the mid 1950's - mid 1960's in the various regions of Southern France, from the Atlantic coast of the Pays Basque to the Pyrenees, and from the Cotes du Rhone to Avignon. The Banat Swabians are an ethnic German population in Southeast Europe (part of the Danube Swabians) who immigrated over 200 years ago to the Banat. This once strong and important German minority has now become quite small. The photographs show the cultivation of the land, landscapes & farms, harvesting of grapes for wine production, feeding of livestock, as well as daily labor & activities of the families Hamann, Eisele, Pintz, Spittel, Hudak, Flagmeier, Grams, Müller, Blech, Daum, Schubert, Günther, Bente, Dr. Thies, Schulz, Senfft v. Pilsach, Genschow, Munch, Werner, & Kein. Includes one plate of a b/w reproduction of an oil painting, captioned "Ferme Bilau vor 100 Jahren" (artist unknown). Photographs in various sizes measuring from 6 1/2 x 9 1/4" to 9 1/4" x 11 1/2". Leif Geiger (1915-1990) was a German photographer and journalist who came from an artistic family in Freiburg. In the 1930's he worked for the famous "Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung." During the war he accompanied the Wehrmacht (Propagandakompanie) to document their experiences on the front. Geiger was not a National Socialist but considered himself a member of the 'political left'. After the war he contributed to over 30 photographic publications, the most well-known being "Geliebte alte Stadt", a work about his hometown Freiburg. Some scuffing and scratches on cloth. Small piece of cloth near head of spine on one volume missing, 1/2" closed tear along joint near head of spine on another volume. Lacking one photo "Büro des Entablissement Rural du Sud-Ouest, Ferme Bilon, Benquet/Landes.' Bindings in good+, photographs in fine condition. Photographs captioned in German. Leif Geiges is mentioned 25 times in Heidtmann. No listings anywhere on this work which most likely served as a book maquette. Verso of each photograph with Geiger's own copyright stamp. Unique.

        Two Original Australian UFO/Contact Close Encounter Investigation Reports, 1953 and 1955. From the Collection of Max Miller.

      See Text, Adelaide, Australia 1955 - Adelaide, Australia: Australian Flying Saucer Research Society / S.A. Flying Saucer Research Society; [and] Fairfield N.S.W. Australia, The Australian Flying Saucer Bureau. 1953 and 1955. From the collection of UFOlogist Max Miller. Typescripts (apparently carbons), with sketches, contained in a black two-hole paper binder. Some raggedness to some edges, some toning. About very good. Original typescripts involving interviews with two claimed close-encounter contactees, one ("K") in August, 1953 and the other ("Julia Hanna") apparently in August or September of 1955 (the interview was conducted on 9/2/55). The documents are "Document A / Copy 2" (Julia Hanna) and "Document K / Copy 2" (K), the latter marked in original hand "Not For Publication Yet -S.S.", though apparently neither ever was published. Document A is a typescript of an interview under hypnosis of Julia Hanna on 9/2/55, presented here by the Australian Flying Saucer Research Society, Adelaide, (as identified on the title page) or The Australian Flying Saucer Bureau, Fairfield N.S.W. (as identified by a piece of letterhead, laid-in, on which is a pencil tracing of a map of "part of Venus" drawn by Julia while under hypnosis). The interview occupies 41 typescript pages, followed by the aforementioned laid in letterhead, followed by four more typescript pages of what was apparently an ESP session with Julia; these include a short list of Julia Hanna's translation of eight simple alien pictoglyphs. "Document K" (the one marked "not for publication") comprises a title page and three typescript pages describing an interview with the other claimed contactee, here identified only as "K" (hence, "Document K", assumed). This one is by the "S.A. Flying Saucer Research Society", but is not South African, being also in Adelaide. It's presumably some variant of the aforementioned society, the S.A. probably denoting"South Australian". Document K contains four simple (traced) sketches by K, two of a UFO from two angles, one a "sketch of roof of house showing two 'stove pipes' [as termed by K] (this a sketch of extratrerretrial living quarters ) and one, occupying an entire 8 1/2" x 11" page, a partial plan view layout of an extraterrestrial compound, though not on earth - the sketch , which shows a nearby beach, also has a spot denoted "K landed here". To the best of my knowledge, neither claimed event was ever published. Whatever was and is going on with contactees, it's fascinating, and certainly not explained. A rather amazing original source to behold. From the collection of noted UFOlogist Max Miller. L103 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Signed by Steinbeck, who lived in Sag Harbor from 1955 until his death in 1968. A larger than usual Steinbeck signature, perhaps of the variety occasioned by someone asking for "an autograph" on a randomly available surface, as opposed to a more formal signing of one's work. 4" x 9" trifold brochure, now tipped to black cardstock. Fine. A nice memento connecting Steinbeck to his longtime, and last, home. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Journals of Captain James Cook on his Voyages of Discovery

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press for the Hakluyt Society, 1955-, 1967. Five thick octavo volumes with folding portfolio of printed charts and views, a fine fresh set in the original striking gilt decorated deep blue cloth with dust-jackets, including the slightly worn original publisher's printed sleeve for the folding case. The definitive publication. The definitive scholarly publication of Captain Cook's journals, together with Beaglehole's Life of Captain Cook published in 1974, and considered to be the fifth octavo volume in the set. Although the full text of the first voyage journal was published in the 19th century, it was not until Beaglehole had completed his work that the unabridged accounts of all three voyages, transcribed from original manuscripts, became generally available. This edition has since become an indispensable reference for the voyages of Cook. The five volumes are accompanied by a portfolio of 58 maps and charts. Loosely inserted is Beaglehole's ten-page booklet Cook and the Russians, which relates to the voyage of the Resolution and Discovery 1776-1780.
