        Chester Nimitz ALS and speech copy, "I am an obtuse admiral ... prepare for WWIII!!

      Berkeley, CA, June 11, 1958. 8" x 10.5". "Single page ALS, 8"" x 10.5"", scripted recto and verso, on Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Berkeley, CA letterhead. Dated ""June 11, 1958"", and signed by Nimitz as ""CW Nimitz"" . Near fine with small staple holes to upper left corner. Accompanied by a single typed carbon copy of Gros's response, near fine with light creasing and a staple hole. For reference, the lot is accompanied by a photocopy of the nine page single sided ""prepared speech statement"", which includes lengthy autographed annotations with an additional full page of autographed notes by Nimitz.Nimitz penned letter to Gros (possibly Vice President, public relations, for Pacific Gas and Electric Co., often lectured on international relations, according to Online Archive of California), references his prepared statement:""I enclose a copy of the statement which I had prepared for Vinson's Committee but did not use because I was not called. However, I may be called before the Senate Armed Forces Committee, and if so, will use it. I am grateful that you will hold the paper secure. You are free - however - to help yourself to such of the ideas expressed - if you believe in them....Aunt Catherine joins me in warmest regards..."" The accompanying second letter shows Gros commenting on Nimitz' speech, Gros says: ""I do hope you are called before the Senate Armed Forces Committee and I expressed that same hope to Tom Gates during the course of a pleasant visit I had with him in Washington last week.... I am utterly shocked at the hint thrown out by the Secretary of Defense yesterday that they might sack Arleigh Burke because of his testimony. is the very negation of the democratic process to inhibit a professional officer's testifying to his honest convictions when called before a Congressional Committee...""The two were referencing Nimitz's prepared speech he planned to give before one of the Armed Forces Committees, which is included with this group as a photocopy. His speech shows a fascinating viewpoint of the armed services and the tactical and strategic balance to prepare for a future war. Nimitz gives his opinion that he believes all armed services should remain independent. ""I am one of those 'obtuse admirals' who believes that if we should unfortunately engage in World War III in the predictable future - say the next five or ten years - we will use many of the methods and in considerable part the same weapons - greatly improved of course - that we used in World War II. ...It has always been my belief that each service should have the tools it needs to carry out its major function - even though other services use similar tools. ...My great concern is that during all the experimentation now going on with missiles of all kinds, none of which have as yet proved themselves at long (over 200-300 miles ) range, we will neglect the proved weapons of World War II. While there have been great advances, there have been only a few changes. Even the atom powered submarine has only a few improvements. It is a steam turbine driven ship with a reactor furnishing heat instead of a boiler. The British had steam driven subs in World War I, and long before that the Turks had a small steam driven sub...""A fantastic set which provides insight into this esteemed Fleet Admiral."

        Moroccan Moods. Twelve gouache paintings ... reproduced by hand. Text by Bernard Guillerez.

      [Casablanca, Laski Bros. for Art Editions Albert Monnet, [December 15th, 1958]. Large folio. Original illustrated wrappers in board wrappers, spine lettered in red, within the original slip case; ff. [iv, the initial blank], 14, 12 colour silkscreen plates; slipcase a little worn and with a few repairs, otherwise a fine copy. First edition in English, one of 500 copies printed, 'presented by Gordon Woodroffe Morocco to R. E. Brook Esq.' in additional print on the limitation page. Carriat-Roland was a poster designer and painter who 'commuted' between Morocco and Paris. These reproductions of gouaches give impressions of Moroccan life, towns and ports. The editors meticulously describe the silkscreen printing process applied here, which is perfectly suited to reproduce the pastose character of gouache paintings. 'This is the first time that this type of work on such a scale has been undertaken successfully in Morocco,' they claim in the preliminaries. - Gordon Woodroffe, who presented this (or all?) copies was a leading manufacturer and shipping company owner in Morocco.

Including one Volume "Desk Index for Volumes I - XXV" and 27 Volumes of First, Second and Third Cumulative Supplements (of which some are separated in two Volumes - especially for the War Years 1940-1945/46).

      London, Butterworth & Co., 1919-1958. - Includes the Volumes I - XXXI and LX - XLVIII. Large Octavo. Over 30000 pages. Includes also 4 Volumes of the "Blue Band" Replacement Edition (these Volumes are available in original and duplicate and all belong to this set). Original Hardcover (red cloth with gilt or black lettering on spine). Good to very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Only Supplement Volume 12 in very poor condition. From the library of irish independent politician and solicitor Jasper Travers Wolfe of Skibbereen. The Digest, formerly published as The English and Empire Digest, is a digest of case law. It is the "major modern work" of this kind. Its coverage is "wide" but incomplete, and it can be "complicated to use" if the user does not understand how the editions overlap. In 1994, it included cases from England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other parts of the Commonwealth, and from the European Communities. More than half a million cases from more than a thousand series of law reports were summarised. The work also serves as a citator and is "valuable" because of this. The English and Empire Digest was published in 49 volumes from 1919 to 1932. This was directed by the Earl of Halsbury and Sir Thomas Willes Chitty. The "Blue Band" Replacement Edition was published in 56 volumes from 1950 to 1970. Publication of the third edition, or "Green Band" Reissue Edition, began in 1971. In 1981, its name was changed to The Digest. It contains the fullest listing of the case law of the United Kingdom, including almost all reported decisions from the sixteenth century. (Wikipedia)

        Mani. Travels in the Southern Peloponnese; [with] Roumeli, Travels in Northern Greece

      London: John Murray [through 1966], 1958. Two First Impressions of "two of the best travel books of the century." (Financial Times) Octavos in correct pictorial dust jackets by John Craxton. Mani: xiii,[5],320pp, with frontispiece and title-page vignette by Craxton, map of the southern Peloponnese by John Woodcock, and 26 photographs by Joan Eyres Monsell (the author's wife); Mani: Publisher's scarlet cloth, spine and upper cover stamped gilt, price-clipped (rather aggressively, catching just the corner of the final letter of the photographer's name). Near Fine, pages clean and binding secure, neatly erased name from front fly leaf, two corners lightly bumped; Near Fine jacket, spine panel very gently faded and top tip lightly rubbed. Roumeli: viii,248pp, with inserted double-page map of northern Greece on heavy grey stock by Craxton and 20 photographs by Monsell. Publisher's French blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped gilt, dust jacket priced 30s. Near Fine or better (spine-tip cloth sunned, name neatly inked on front fly leaf ), very lightly read, gilt bright; Near Fine jacket (spine panel moderately tanned, tips lightly rubbed and nicked), front panel still bright and vibrant. All in all, an attractive set. ¶ During the Second World War, Leigh Fermor was stationed in Albania, Greece, and occupied Crete, where, disguised as a shepherd in the mountains, he helped organize the resistance. After the War he traveled in the West Indies and then settled in Greece. Mani, an exploration of that country's southernmost promontory, one of the most isolated regions of the world, is considered by some his finest book. ("Almost every page has its own literary tour de force, often with intimidating displays of learning and research mixed with fantasy, imagination and acute descriptions of the scene itself." Robin Hanbury-Tenison, Geographical: 76; pp. 42-49). It was followed by a sequel, Roumeli (the ancient name for the lands from the Bosphorus to the Adriatic and from Macedonia to the Gulf of Corinth) explores Northern Greece and its minority communities, taking the reader among Sarakatsan shepherds, the monasteries of Meteora and the villages of Krakora, among itinerant peddlers and beggars. Leigh Fermor was widely regarded as Britain's greatest travel writer during his lifetime, and he was once described as "a cross between Indiana Jones, James Bond and Graham Greene." N. B.

With 6 cuttings stapled and laid in. Deux: original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket and 6 documents laid in. Un: 4 double-sided photographic plates, numerous illustrations to the text. Deux: 13 diagrams to the text. A few neat pencil and ink annotations to contents. Un: spine sunned, wrappers creased, extremities nicked, hinges cracked but firm. Deux: spine ends rubbed, corners gently bumped, a few small nicks to dust jacket extremities. Both very good copies. Scarce first edition, first impression, presentation copies, inscribed by the author to fellow social anthropologist and ethnologist Sir Raymond Firth on the half-titles, "A Raymond Firth, avec l'amitié de Claude Lévi Strauss" and "To Raymond Firth, with warmest regards, Claude Lévi Strauss". Anthropologie structurale and Anthropologie structurale deux present a collection of foundational essays written over the course of nearly two decades and which were key to the development of the theories of structuralism and structural anthropology. Firth (1901-2002) was a lecturer at the London School of Economics and became particularly well known for his study of Maori culture. Lévi-Strauss admired Firth's work and contributed to the papers read at the celebration of Firth's life and works in 2004. The six cuttings laid in to Anthropologie structurale contain reviews of ethnographic, economic, and anthropological works by Raoul and Laura Makarius, Serge Latouche, and Bernard Delfendahl, as well as the front cover for the 1973 catalogue for Editions Anthropos. The five documents laid in to Deux are: a) Three-page signed typewritten draft of Firth's review of D. M. Goodfellow's Principles of Economic Sociology (1939), published in the Royal Institute of Philosophy's journal (1941), annotated by Firth. b) Four-page printed review of La Pensée sauvage by Nur Yalman from the American Anthropologist. c) Note card from Lévi-Strauss to Firth dated 15 May 1968. d) Note card from Firth to unknown recipient, dated 24 May 1977. e) Note on paper, possibly in Firth's handwriting, discussing the translation of the title of Lévi-Strauss's La Pensée sauvage. f) Note on yellow paper, possibly in Firth's handwriting, laid in to p. 139, on the distinction between formalism and structuralism.
