        Mr. Citizen.

      Bernard Geis, New York 1960 - First edition, the author's edition. Octavo, original half leatherette, slipcase. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "To Honorable John Wesley Snyder from his good friend, comrade and associate in most trying times. He was the greatest of the great Secretaries of the Treasury." The original slipcase is also inscribed to Snyder from Truman but has faded. John W. Snyder was appointed Secretary of the Treasury in 1946 by his close personal friend President Truman, with whom he had served in the Army Reserves. His task as Secretary was to establish a stable postwar economy. The main points of his program were maintaining confidence in the credit of the government, reducing the federal debt, keeping the interest rate low, and encouraging public thrift through investment in U.S. Savings Bonds. A conservative businessman, he had faith that the free economy would work itself out. He reduced the national debt while balancing the budget. He held several public and private positions including National Bank Receiver in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Loan Administrator, and Director of War Mobilization and Reconversion. In the last office he played a leading part in the transition of the Nation's economy from wartime to a peacetime basis. An excellent association. "Mr. Citizen" is a collection of articles written by President Truman after leaving the White House. "Truman belongs in the company of our great Presidents" (New York Times).

        [Photo Album]: New England Family featuring Boy Scouts and the Portland to Montreal Pipeline

      Maine, 1960. Near Fine. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 12". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with gilt decorations. Contains 208 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs and 3 later color photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 3.5" x 5.5" with captions. Photo album is very good with detached but present pages, small tears, and spotting with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a New England family between 1902 and 1960. The album details a variety of family events including trips and vacations. The album is not in chronological order and begins with photos of a Boy Scout Troop from Dracut, Massachusetts between 1923 and 1924. These photos show the troop in group photos during their "1st Overnight Hike" in New Hampshire. The boys are seen cooking, starting fires, and hiking in candid snapshots. The next section documents a trip to Quebec in 1902 with photos of Montmorency Falls and the Quebec Zoo. In 1919 the family who kept the album bought a home in Dracut, Massachusetts. The photos document the changes they made to the house, including the addition of a sun porch, and the changing of seasons. One caption reads, "several large Baldwin apple trees in full bloom added to the beauty of the spring." The album shows the beauty of the New England landscape with photos of waterfalls, rock faces, and beaches as well as working on the family farm.One section of six photos shows the welding of the Portland to Montreal pipeline in 1941. The pipeline began as a response to the oil shortages Canada was facing in World War II. The decision was made to take crude oil from Portland, Maine to Montreal with a pipeline which measured approximately 236 miles. The photos here show the construction of the pipeline, digging ditches, laying pipe, and welding. One photo shows the joining of the pipe at "the line," the border between the U.S. and Canada. Another photo shows an aerial view of the pipe "looking North."The later part of the album is a collection of travel and family photos through the 1960s. Many of the photos are taken in the 1940s depicting picnics, campsites, and road travel, including a section of photos from a camping trip to Mt. Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine, in September of 1942. These photos show people hiking up the Dudley Trail featuring snapshots of the Knife Edge peak and Chimney Pond. Later in the album the family visit Keene, New Hampshire and New York as well. The New York photos show Radio City's ice rink, Grant's tomb, and the library at Columbia, among other tourist sites. A few of the photos are in color from the 1960s and show an older couple posing together. An extensive New England family album featuring boy scouts and the homefront during World War II.

        Botteghe Oscure.

      Rome: [De Luca Editore], 1948-1960 - 25 volumes, octavo. Original printed buff wrappers. 8 volumes (IX-XVI) with wraparound bands; 9 volumes (XVII-XXV) with dust jackets. A few unopened volumes. Wrappers and jackets slightly toned with lightly creased and nicked extremities, text blocks lightly toned. An excellent set. Complete collection of the semi-annual literary journal Botteghe Oscure, with the 1949 Rome issue of Volume I (Volume I was first published in 1948 in Naples). Founded by Marguerite Caetani in Rome in 1948 and named after the street on which the editorial office was located, Botteghe Oscure was an explicitly international literary magazine, both in scope and distribution. "In twelve years it published writers from thirty countries in five languages: English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish. Most contributions appeared in the original, with no translation; the only exceptions were made for texts written in less common languages like Greek, Korean, or Dutch, which were translated into English Caetani wanted to create something different from the publications that populated the Italian literary scene in the 1940s, which she described as 'historical, critical, political, dry as dust' in a letter to her half sister, poet Katherine Biddle" (Lucamante, Elsa Morante's Politics of Writing, p.106). Caetani, together with Giorgio Bassani, her one constant collaborator and editor for the Italian section of the magazine, sought to support both established and unknown authors and published contributions by the likes of W. H. Auden, André Frénaud, Giuseppe di Lampedusa, Guglielmo Petroni, Nelly Sachs, Edith Sitwell, Dylan Thomas, and William Carlos Williams, among others. [Attributes: First Edition]
