        MASSIVE ARCHIVE OF THOUSANDS OF ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS AND PHOTOGRAPHIC SLIDES, ALONG WITH NUMEROUS AUDIO RECORDINGS, COMPILED BY JACOB HARRIS, AN AMERICAN WHO SERVED AS A SENIOR POLICE ADVISOR IN VIETNAM AND THAILAND DURING THE VIETNAM WAR].

      [Vietnam, Thailand, and elsewhere in Asia, as well as the United States, Europe and the Middle East. circa 1964 - 1974]. - More than 1,700 original photographic prints and 2,000 original photographic slides, plus fourteen audio recordings. Also, miscellaneous documents. Most of the slides preserved in their original Kodak processing boxes. Some photographs loose but most bound into albums. On the whole, in near fine condition. A large and remarkable archive of images from Vietnam and Thailand, covering the decade from the Gulf of Tonkin incident and the beginning of the buildup of American forces in Vietnam to a year before the evacuation of the American embassy. The most notable aspect of the collection are the many images showing the training of local security forces by American civil and military advisors. The collection was compiled by Jacob Harris, an employee of USAID's "Office of Public Safety," whose task was to train Vietnamese and Thai police and counterinsurgency forces. Most of the images, in the form of photographs and photographic slides, were created by Harris, his wife, or his associates, and illustrate all aspects of life in those countries at the time. Harris travelled widely throughout the region, and the collection includes images from not only Vietnam and Thailand, but also from Laos, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, India, and elsewhere. The images also document Harris's lengthy career as a New Jersey State Trooper, and his travels in other parts of the world. ^Jacob Joseph Harris (ca. 1910- 2005) also known as "Jack" and "Jake" served for thirty-six years (1928- 1964) with the New Jersey State Police, eventually attaining the rank of Major. Included herein is a printed card, dated December 31, 1960, marking thirty years of Harris's service to the state of New Jersey. In 1964 he began what he called his "second career," taking a position with the United States Agency for International Development, and was stationed first in Vietnam and then in Thailand. As his postings permitted, he was joined by his wife of many years, Virginia, and she appears in a great number of the photographs. ^Harris was associated mostly with USAID's "Office of Public Safety," which was established in 1957 to train the police forces of America's overseas allies. The OPS was often used by the Central Intelligence Agency as a cover for its agents abroad, and operated in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia until it was shut down by Congress in 1974. At other times, Harris was a part of the State Department's "Office of Missions." Whether or not Harris was directly employed by the CIA has not been ascertained, and it seems that his actual role in Vietnam and Thailand was in fact the training of local police and paramilitary forces. However, Harris's proximity to high ranking officials in the governments of South Vietnam and Thailand, as well as the nature of many of the photographs in this collection, show that he played an active and important role in training local forces to fight the Vietcong and Thai insurgents. And it is certainly true that the various departments and agencies of the U.S. government in southeast Asia at this time (those working overtly or covertly) worked together toward their common goal. Jacob Harris ended his career at the State Department in Washington, and retired to Florida in 1975. ^A slide included as part of the collection explains the "Objective of U.S. Assistance to Civil Police Programs & Paramilitary Forces Overseas." Among these are "encourage humane responsible police administration; enforce the law & maintain public order with minimum use of force; counter subversion & terrorism; improve the character and image of civil police & paramilitary forces binding them more closely to the community." A large percentage of the photographs and slides in this collection show Jacob Harris with the Vietnamese and Thai officials and officers that he worked with, trained, and advised during his decade of service. Included are images of military and political leaders, members of the Thai royal family, and members of milit

        Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1974 - First American edition of the author's seventh novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Le Carre on the title page. Some fading to the cloth, very good in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy garnered instant praise for Le Carre as "[t]he premier spy novelist of his time. Perhaps of all time" (Time). "Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster" (Newsweek). Le Carre's inspiration drew from his experience of the revealing of the Cambridge Five traitors in the 1950s and '60s (Anthony, 2009), and the novel's popularity can be seen in relation to those shocking events. In 2011, the novel was adapted into a successful film, starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, and it received three nominations at the 84th Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Actor. This successful production is but one of Le Carre's numerous accolades in espionage fiction. He was awarded both the Helmerich Award and the Goethe Medal, and, in 2008, The Times ranked Le Carré 22nd on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945."

        Espingarda perfeyta, & regras para a sua operaçam . . .Lisbon, António Pedroso Galrão, 1718. 4to. With full-page frontispiece showing the crowned Portuguese coat of arms, title-page with engraved decorative cartouche, 12 engraved plates (including 4 folding) by Manuel Freire and 1 engraved illustration in the text. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, manuscript spine-title.

      Innocencio IV, 1250; KVK & WorldCat (7 copies); Schwerdt I, p. 174; cf. Daehnhardt, Espingarda Perfeita or The Perfect Gun (London, 1974). First (and only early) edition of a rare Portuguese manual devoted primarily to gun smithing, but also discussing the use of guns in hunting. It gives detailed instructions and excellent illustrations concerning the techniques of gunsmithing ca. 1700, with views of men at work at the forge, with many tools in view, a man using a lathe, men using several other tools, decorated gunlocks and other decorative elements. One plate shows a man shooting a bird. Written by two brothers, the Lisbon gunsmiths José Fransisco and João Rodrigues, it is "the most remarkable treatise on the subject of gunmaking of this period'' (Daehnhardt in the introduction of the 1974 reprint). The Rodrigues brothers broke with tradition by setting down in print knowledge that had previously been passed down from master to apprentice within the closed circles of the trade guilds.With 1 plate detached, a few minor tears, and an occasional stain (mostly in the gutter margin), otherwise in very good condition. A rare and well-illustrated practical manual of gunsmithing.

        The Darkening Ecliptic

      London: Alastair Macalpine, 1974. Quarto, colour plates, an excellent copy in original printed boards with the dust-jacket as issued (this a little rubbed). With an original crayon sketch by Nolan. Rare: with an original crayon on the front endpaper signed by Sidney Nolan. The sketch relates to the work done by Nolan relating to one of the poems in this edition, the &#39;Young Prince of Tyre.&#39; This lavish publication was sponsored by the renowned (and sometimes controversial) art critic and connoisseur Alistair McAlpine. It celebrates the Ern Malley controversy through the graphic art of Sidney Nolan, who was himself closely associated with Angry Penguins at the time of the scandal. The Ern Malley poems were the work of two young Australian writers Harold Stewart and James McAuley who confected the verse and offered it for publication in Angry Penguins as a satirical critique of modernist literature. To some extent the potency of the hoax was undermined by the literary merit of The Darkening Ecliptic, now considered a seminal work of Australian literature. In this fine edition the artwork of Sidney Nolan offers a vivid and sometimes unsettling counterpoint to the poems. Although signed by Nolan, Robert Melville and Elwyn Lynn, the three main contributors, this copy not numbered. The original deluxe issue was of 50 copies, meaning that the present copy must be out of series.

        [Original Typescript Epistolary Diary]

      Dutch Neck, ME. 18 May - 27 May 1974.. Fourteen pages on eight leaves, on rectos and versos of all but two of the leaves. Quarto. Dense, single-spaced typescript, with a few scattered corrections and deletions. Accompanied by three envelopes, two typed, one addressed in manuscript. Some annotations to one of the envelopes, otherwise very good. A fascinating sequence of correspondence from writer John Clellon Holmes, written for and sent to his wife, Shirley. The letters span a period of nine days and form a personal journal, of sorts, sent by Holmes to his wife during a solitary trip to a family cabin in Maine, touching on the daily routine of practical matters, observations about his own health and mental state, his reading, his writing and painting, his responses to the music to which he&#39;s been listening , and observations about the world and his friends and contemporaries. His topics range widely, from the mechanics of opening up the cabin and the extrication of his vehicle from a muddy bog, and comments on wildlife and the weather, to far more reflective matters, punctuated with skirmishes with a painful tooth and the "Zen of Mysteriously Malfunctioning Machinery." In part, he writes: "All the books are ahead of me. I&#39;ve kept virginal, knowing the rainy days will come, the house-bound days. I felt nervous reading the poems. I would like to scour my mind, but have scoured all the pots & dishes instead ...." He ponders "... above all the enigma of intelligence itself, and its lust for beauty - which means shapeliness, rightness, the fitting together of elements, mortised one to the other in exactly the same way that you build a table or a house. Poems, too, partake of this fastidiousness. Williams&#39; idea: NO IDEAS BUT IN THINGS. Olsen&#39;s conception of projective verse, one perception leading directly and immediately into the next. These notions viewed as aesthetic guides, rather than philosophy ... Religion begins when the multiplicity of life, and the mysteries of origins and destinations, surges into the consciousness, bringing a baffling sense of insignificance, awe, dread, and the taste of the grave, out of which men evolve symbols or ideas to worship. Art remains this side of the shroud, and as angry as it sometimes is it celebrates the very fatality it depicts, the moment of the flesh and the mind ... I&#39;ve smoked too much and succombed [sic] to drink too early - though I&#39;ve had no hangovers. I find the hard thing to jettison is the speculative tendency of the intelligence, my reflex of savoring the moment or the insight in terms of time & work, rather than simply experiencing it ...." Later: "Tried to get into Mishima, tried to get into Chinese poetry: some fixity in the consciousness wouldn&#39;t allow it ... Minor crisis of desperation, like a nagging tooth - which, by the way, I have ... Slept an hour against my tooth, and woke to Orono and Scott Momaday talking about the Kiowa Sun- Dance religion - clear and precise articulation, fine sense of Plains Indian culture, and its destruction along with the buffalo. Sad for vanished ghost faiths that were so much closer to the physical realities of this continent than anything we&#39;ve brought to it ...." He comments on reading Saul Bellow and his admiration for him: "I find his soul alien to mine, and yet I admire him enormously. He is our only old- fashioned novelist of worth ..," and on his evening rereading of HAMLET: "Perfect unity of all elements, and a largeness of comprehension that astounds even the fiftieth time around...." On listening to parts of a recording of DEATH OF A SALESMAN: " ... I respect Miller in the same way that I respect Bellow - distantly but genuinely. Both men (and perhaps me, too) are nostalgic for some European past, a social order based on values, no matter how hollow, that were universally accepted. Beginning as radicals, social critics, both men make an urban, ethnic poetry out of bafflement that never quite becomes rage." Later, he has been painting, and observes: "Artists are bums - that is, they exist in filth and chaos of spirit, they seize the moment rather than the day, they giggle in their beards, they work at all hours, and sleep when they&#39;re done, and wake again, they tend to stink, their moods fluctuate worse than Maine weather, they are haunted by the unknown, and everything they do has to be done again. They paint with rain-water, or with candles in their hats; they scribble on stray sheets of paper, or compose in their inflamed brains. Dying for love, they are unlovable ...." The same day (24 May): "Duke [Ellington] died today. Heard it on the radio as I painted in half-blear at seven, and found myself crying into my paint water, though he had a good, productive, long life, and needs no one&#39;s tears. Still, the giants of music have all gone now. I missed him suddenly, because of course my appreciation of him only came these last ten-twelve years, and there I was working, and knowing a little the joy of the work, and thus fancied I knew what kept him so joyful, and -- well, the tears came swiftly, of themselves, and went away, and I finished the painting. The poem last night about a poet sick to death of death." On the 25th, he records: "Finding it hard to read - a little more SAMMLER, some of Allen&#39;s FALL OF AMERICA poems just now. Feel him keenly these days, his reponsibleness, his life&#39;s in sync at last. Miss time to talk with him the way, now and then, I miss Jack&#39;s existence somewhere in the world with a baffling ache ... Crazy jaunt to Maine to sit here in the cold wind, worrying about whether I&#39;ll be able to chow tonight, my car stuck in the mud, the house a jumble of wet socks, poems not coming (when you&#39;re shivering it jiggles your lines), a little pleased that I&#39;ve painted after all, Lawrence stories unread, mushrooms hard as rocks, sense of once-fineness of body going to pieces like an old flivver in the weeds, warmth & companionship out of reach, specters coming to haunt me. Well, kill the dreariness, and so down to the beach." The daily record continues in the same vein, including an extended account of a late October visit to Provincetown, with mentions of Kerouac, Weldon Kees, and Ginsberg, and some exceptional comments about his affection for NY bars in previous years, and the ghosts that haunted them. In sum, the diary presents a lucid and spontaneous record kept during a few days of isolation, with frequent glimpses of self- analysis and literary reflection, by the Beat novelist, essayist and intimate chronicler of his contemporaries and friends: Kerouac, Ginsberg, Cassady, et al.
