        Extremely Rare Image! Unique Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Signed Photograph of the Surrender of Japan aboard the USS "Missouri" in Tokyo Bay, September 2, 1945 with lengthy inscription

      [San Francisco, California], 1965 / 1966. 14" x 11". "Rare Photograph Signed ""C.W. Nimitz, Fleet Admiral, U.S. Navy"" on photographic image in lower blank margin with 33-word inscription. Black and white, 10"" x 8"" image, overall 14"" x 11"". Captioned on the image: ""THE JAPANESE SURRENDER / U.S.S. MISSOURI / TOKYO BAY, 2 SEPTEMBER 1945."" Affixed to heavy board of same size. Minor flaws in blank margins. Fine condition.Inscribed by Fleet Admiral Nimitz ""To Dr. E.R. Lewis - with best wishes and great appreciation of your generous courtesy / in presenting to me a personalized copy of your very important work - 'A HISTORY OF / SAN FRANCISCO HARBOR DEFENSE INSTALLATIONS'. C.W. Nimitz Fleet Admiral, U.S. Navy.""In this unique signed photograph taken during the surrender ceremonies on board the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, September 2, 1945, Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Commander-in-Chief, Pacific, and Pacific Ocean Areas, is signing the Instrument of Surrender as the Japanese representatives, who have already signed, stand at attention. Standing immediately behind Fleet Admiral Nimitz are, left to right, Rear Admiral Forrest Sherman, Deputy Chief of Staff to Admiral Nimitz; Admiral William F. Halsey, Commander, Third Fleet; and General of the Army Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Allied Commander.In this image, after the Japanese representatives signed the surrender document, Admiral Nimitz signed as ""United States Representative."" As Nimitz signs, Admiral Halsey is whispering into General MacArthur's ear as MacArthur puts his arm on Halsey's back.Most probably because Halsey is speaking to MacArthur as Admiral Nimitz signed and there are so many photographs of the signing from all angles picturing the three officers standing at attention behind Nimitz, this image itself is rare.""A History of San Francisco Harbor Defense Installations"" by Dr. Emanuel Raymond Lewis (1928-2014) was published by the California Division of Beaches & Parks in 1965. Fleet Admiral Nimitz died in 1966. E.R. Lewis was commissioned as a First Lieutenant in the Coast Artillery Corps, but it was abolished shortly after his commission. He was then transferred to Military Intelligence where he served form 1954-1956. He was the longest serving and final House Librarian for the U.S. House of Representatives Library in the U.S. Capitol Building. Lewis was appointed House Librarian in 1973, and served in this position until January 1995, at which time the Library, along with the House Historical Office, were reorganized and placed under the new Legislative Resource Center, a division of the Office of the Office of the Clerk. As House Librarian, in July 1974, Lewis provided critical historical references to guide the House Judiciary Committee in its work during its hearings for the impeachment the President."

        Space-time approach to quantum electrodynamics" WITH "The Theory of Positrons" in: Physical Review, Vol. 76, 1949, pp. 769-89 and 749-59

      FIRST EDITION of Feynman's literal "reformation of quantum mechanics itself;" claiming "that he could not understand standard quantum theory and had to recreate it on his own, Feynman's famous diagrams, introduced and developed here for the first time, "elegantly rewrite quantum theory" (American National Biography; Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 102). This volume includes a plethora of other works of significance: Richard Feynman's "Theory of Positrons", "On the Origin of Elements " by Maria Mayer and Edward Teller; Giulio Racah "Theory of Complex Spectra" and work by Shockley, Bratten, Bardeen, Pearson, Shul, Schwinger, Zener and so many others. Of the three pivotal formulations of quantum mechanics, Feynman's was the third, following Heisenberg's matrix formulation and Schrodinger's wave equation formulation; Feynman's is the third formulation. Feynman's path integral formulation was "another way of thinking about QED that is probably as visualizable as any theory of quantum fields is ever going to be, and relatively easy to calculate with. The key idea was to represent every possible particle interaction with a space-time diagram. Photon wordlines (their trajectories through spacetime) are represented by wavy lines, while particles such as electrons and positrons are straight lines or curves" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 102). "The dramatic discovery that Feynman made is that the space-time description of a positron moving forward in time is EXACTLY equivalent to the same mathematical description of an electron moving backward through time along the same track in the Feynman diagram. In addition, because photons are their own antiparticles, there is no difference in this description between a photon moving forward in time and one moving backward in time… An electron proceeding through space and time meets an energetic photon, absorbs it, and is scattered backward BACKWARD IN TIME until it emits an energetic photon and recoils in such a way that it moves forward in time again. Instead of three particles, two electrons, and a positron in a complicated dance, we have one particle, one electron that zigzags its way through space AND time, colliding with photons here and there along the way. Feynman (along with Tomonaga and Schwinger) won the 1965 Nobel Prize "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles" (Nobel Foundation). CONDITION & DETAILS: Full volume. Lancaster: American Physical Society. 4to (10.75 x 8 inches; 268 x 200mm). Continuously paginated pp.1934. Feynman papers pp. 769-789 and pp. 749-759.

Illustration: In-text figures throughout. Exterior: Bound in tan cloth with a gilt-lettered spine; very slight rubbing at the edges; minor indentations on cover. Tightly and solidly bound.

        The End of the Game

      New York: Viking (1965) - First Edition. Quarto. A fine presentation copy, lengthily INSCRIBED by Beard to former Minneapolis Institute of Arts photography curator Christian Petersen. The inscription includes a two-page hand drawing in ball point pen, a small foot print in black ink, and an interesting history of the book's publication, as follows: "Special Delivery / from C.J. Bucher in / Lucerne 1962-1963 / another uphill battle vs Helen K. Taylor / and Bryan Holme [Viking Press retards while / I was still @ school trying to do this book / .(. subsequently delayed three years)." A scrapbook of African images, text, and other musings, culled from Beard's work in Kenya in the early 1960s, and published when the photographer was only 25 years old. Sadly, much of what Beard feared and forecast has come true, adding an uncanny prescience to his apocalyptic title. (Roth 170-171, Open Book 208-209, Auer 448). A few ink smudges to the boards, tiny bump at the spine head, else near fine in a near fine jacket. Meaningful copies of the true first edition of Beard's first and most important book are uncommon.

        I travestiti. Con una nota di Elvio Fachinelli. A cura di Sergio Donnabella

      In - 4 (cm 24x32), pp. 164. Testi e fotografie in bianco e nero di Lisetta Carmi. Leg. edit. cartonata illustrata. Inserto di 16 pagine di carta rosa sottile con riproduzione di foto e lettere dattiloscritte che i protagonisti del libro inviarono alla fotografa. Testi in italiano e inglese tradotti da Pietro Ferrari. Grande forza alle foto è data dall'impaginazione realizzata da Giancarlo Liprandi, uno tra i migliori rappresentanti del design grafico del secondo novecento e il cui contributo non può essere considerato secondario per la realizzazione di questo meraviglioso volume. "Tutto ciò che è maschile può essere anche femminile, e viceversa. Non esistono comportamenti obbligati, se non in una tradizione autoritaria che ci viene imposta sin dall'infanzia". Così scriveva Lisetta Carmi negli anni Settanta, nell'introduzione. La fotografa genovese, pioniera del fotoreportage d'impegno civile italiano, realizzò non solo una delle prime indagini sociali sul fenomeno del travestitismo in Italia, ma un racconto profondamente coinvolgente di una minoranza al margine. "Li ho conosciuti a una festa di Capodanno a Genova nel 1965, loro vivevano nel ghetto degli ebrei, tra Via del Campo e piazza Fossatella. In sei anni di vita insieme li ho sempre protetti, stimati, ho vissuto la loro sofferenza, l'emarginazione, le violenze, gli arresti. Ma grazie a loro, ho capito me e ho riscoperto la gioia di essere donna in un periodo in cui mi ribellavo al ruolo che la società ci aveva assegnato". Le straordinarie fotografie ci restituiscono i protagonisti in una dimensione privata, mentre sorridono alla macchina fotografica esibendosi senza finzioni in reggiseno e cotonature altissime, mentre si truccano, si allacciano il reggicalze, cucinano. Il libro faticò a trovare un editore e attirò la condanna della chiesa. Dopo qualche anno alcune copie furono distribuite con una sopracoperta a celare la foto di copertina."I Travestiti svolgono un servizio sociale? Sono l'espressione enfatizzata ed esasperata di un modo ormai superato (o in via di superamento) di considerare la donna come un bene di consumo? Sono l'avanguardia paradossale e contraddittoria di un modo nuovo di concepire (o di abolire) i ruoli assegnati all'uomo e alla donna? O sono tutte queste cose insieme?Io sono entrata nell'ambiente dei travestiti per caso nel 1965 durante una festa di capodanno: li ho rivisti successivamente nella loro vita quotidiana e ho cominciato a vivere con loro e a fotografarli. Li ho subito sentiti come esseri umani che vivono e soffrono tutte le contraddizioni della nostra società come minoranza ricercata da una parte e respinta dall'altra. Non è un caso però se il mio interesse e la mia partecipazione ai loro problemi ha creato fra me e loro una fiducia, un affetto e una comprensione che mi hanno permesso di fare questo lavoro con un rapporto che andava al di là di un normale rapporto fra fotografo e fotografati. Io stessa in quel tempo ero assillata - forse a livello inconscio - da problemi di identificazione maschile o femminile. Oggi capisco che non si trattava tanto di accettazione di uno "stato" quanto di rifiuto di un "ruolo".E i travestiti (o meglio il mio rapporto coi travestiti) mi hanno aiutato ad accettarmi per quello che sono: una persona che vive senza ruolo. Osservare i travestiti mi ha fatto capire che tutto ciò che è maschile può essere anche femminile, e viceversa. Non esistono comportamenti obbligati, se non in una tradizione autoritaria che ci viene imposta fin dall'infanzia. Ma chi sono i travestiti? Perché - al di là di un mezzo per vivere - cercano così disperatamente la condizione femminile? Che cosa significa per loro il mito della donna? E che cosa è "la donna"? intendo non solo per loro ma anche per i clienti. Tutte domande a cui è difficile dare una risposta, ma che sono vive e presenti nel nostro tempo e che mettono oggi in crisi il rapporto uomo - donna. I travestiti si mascherano, è vero; ma lo fanno per necessità. Hanno però il coraggio di fare quello che fanno e di affrontare una realtà spesso drammatica e violenta. Per molti di loro non esiste una alternativa di lavoro: come uomini hanno un aspetto troppo femminile,come donne hanno l'impedimento dello stato anagrafico maschile. Sopportano stati di solitudine incredibile proprio perché da una parte la società li ricerca e dall'altra li isola, li obbliga praticamente a vivere in ghetti (a Genova il loro quartiere è proprio l'antico ghetto degli ebrei), ha paura di riconoscersi in loro. Li usa, li paga, li giudica: ignorando volutamente che sono esseri umani. Ma io credo che il giudizio che noi diamo degli altri è quasi sempre un giudizio che noi diamo di noi stessi; ciò che negli altri ci spaventa è in noi; e difendiamo noi stessi sempre offendendo quella parte di noi che rifiutiamo. Mi diceva un travestito, riferendosi alla sua vita privata e non certo al suo lavoro: "Quando io ho un rapporto d'amore, non mi importa se è con un uomo o con una donna: è un essere umano che in quel momento mi dà se stesso e al quale io do me stesso". Una difesa dell'omosessualità? No. Forse è invece un'apertura verso rapporti umani più veri e più liberi e il rifiuto di rapporti standardizzati e violenti. E non è un caso che proprio lo stesso travestito, che anni fa appariva come una bellissima donna, oggi ha ritrovato la sua parte maschile, attende con gioia un figlio dalla donna che ama, e non fa più il travestito. La sua è stata un'avventura umana, un ritrovarsi da solo con le sue sole forze, in una società che per difendere dei principi non è più capace di vedere gli uomini" (Lisetta Carmi) [http: / / / dblog / articolo.asp?articolo=830] "Via del Campo c'è una graziosa / gli occhi grandi color di foglia / tutta notte sta sulla soglia / vende a tutti la stessa rosa". Così, nel 1967, cantava Fabrizio De Andrè in "Via del Campo", rendendo famose in tutta Italia le "graziose" di Genova, quelle che a Napoli chiamavano "femminielli" e altrove "travestiti". Ma l'Italia scoprì le "graziose" non solo grazie alla voce di De Andrè, ma anche al libro "I travestiti" di Lisetta Carmi, un'artista sempre interessata al sociale che ha seguito con la sua macchina fotografica i "travestiti" genovesi dal 1965 al 1971, stringendo amicizie durate anni. Sono immagini di un bianco e nero lontano, provenienti da un mondo scomparso, remoto. Ma i "travestiti" resistono, orfani di quell'antica magia, gemme di una luce futura. Amati spesso da uomini tradizionalisti con intuizioni rivoluzionarie" [http: / / / ... / arte - travestiti - resistenti - e...]

        The Orchard Keeper

      US: Random House, 1965 A Near Fine, apparently unread copy with softness at spine ends, slightest bit of splay to front board, and a couple of faint spots of foxing to front end page; in a Near Fine jacket that has slight soiling, mild curl at flap ends and a faint blue band along the top of jacket (this was apparently a production flaw on all or most of the first issue jackets) about a quarter of an inch from top edge, a very tiny chip at bottom of back flap, and a touch of sun fade to red lettering on spine. The jacket is often a problem with this title and this copy is sound but there are scored lines along the interior of jacket at the flap folds. A nice copy of McCarthy?s first novel.
