        Men from Earth - 1st Edition/1st Printing

      Bantam Books New York: Bantam Books. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1989. First Edition; First Printing; Signed by Author. Hardcover. 0553053744 . A First Edition/First Printing in unread Fine condition in alike dustjacket. SIGNED by astronaut and author Buzz Aldrin directly on the half-title page. Advertisement card of booksigning event laid in. A very nice copy of a dramatic piece of history; In his book, Aldrin, the second man on the moon, interweaves the story of U. S. And Soviet efforts to reach the moon with his first-hand experience flying both the Gemini and Apollo missions during the height of the space race. His recounting of his two space flights is compelling, especially the account of the nearly aborted Apollo 11 lunar landing. In contrast to Aldrin's astronaut's point of view, Murray and Cox's book tells the Apollo story through the eyes of the NASA managers who guided the men and machines from the early days of the Space Task Group to the Apollo lunar missions. The result is the best account to date of how the enormous program was successfully accomplished. Full of insiders' anecdotes, this book truly humanizes the lunar landing story that too often has been told only in technological and bureaucratic terms. Relying heavily on interviews with the people behind the scenes, the authors vividly capture the spirit of Apollo, its triumphs and tragedies, and its ultimate success .

        Survival in Sarajevo: Jews, Bosnia and the Lessons of the Past [SIGNED]

B/W photographs documenting buildings and people in Sarajevo 1989 and 1993-1994, including a Muslim boy evacuating out of Bosnia to Israel with the help of Jewish-sponsored rescue convoys. Evocative images include Jacob Finci, President of LA Benevolencija in the Jewish Museum of Bosnia; Zayneba Hardaga, the first Muslim to receive a righteous gentile award; keys taken by Jews leaving Spain in 1492 from the collection of the Jewish Museum of Bosnia; Sarajevo University Library, and the Sarajevo Jewish Cemetery, which was the front line of the Bosnian War. The project was underwritten by The Doron Foundation (Tel Aviv) Mordechai Mevorach (director) and The Righteous Persons Foundation (Santa Monica) Steven Spielberg (chairman). Fine condition. Housed in original gray linen clamshell box, bumped with some cloth separation along rear hinge. As a documentary photographer specializing in contemporary Jewish life in Central Europe, when Sarajevo was besieged I wanted to see how a post-Holocaust Jewish community would react to war and "ethnic cleansing'" for the second time in fifty years. I wondered; would all the Jews leave? would those remaining lock their doors, letting their neighbors fight it out among themselves? After all, this was a war between Serbs, Croats and Muslims, in which the Jews play no contentious part. and while the majority of Jews fled the city, a vital core remained to stand with their friends and neighbors. Working together, they have turned history on its head, because for the first time during a modern European war, Jews are saving and protecting Christians and Muslims, wherever, whenever they can." Edward Serotta.

I had the President frank each envelope with his signature, returned them to you in the Capitol, and you took them to the Benjamin Franklin Post Office where they were canceled. You returned them to me. I gave them to the President, and he kept three and returned the balance to me. Of these, I gave you one. I subsequently had one copy sold in a charity auction. Sincerely, ‘Tip’ O’Neill.” (2) Photocopy of an undated statement from former Speaker O’Neill headed “Letter of Provenance for / Inaugural Free Frank Covers of 1989.” In full, “The accompanying cover with cachet was signed on the 20th of January 1989 by President George Herbert Walker Bush moments after he was sworn into office as the 42nd [sic, 41st] President of the United States, at a luncheon in the U.S. Capitol hosted by Speaker of the House, Jim Wright. Before a nationally televised audience President Bush signed this, and several other covers, including one signed with Mrs. Bush [THIS ONE!]. This occurred immediately after he signed the book nominating various members of his Cabinet. The covers were returned to me and given to my good friend Lewis F. Shull who went directly to the Postmaster of the House, Mr. Robert V. Rota. Arrangements had been made with the Postmaster General for the special Inaugural cancel to be in his possession in his office. The special cancel was applied over President Bush’s signature. The covers were then returned to me. I presented several to Lewis F. Shull and several to the President. I am giving the remainder of the covers to my grandchildren. The cover attached is one of those signed on the 20th of January 1989 by President George Herbert Walker Bush. Thomas P. O’Neill, Jr.” Provenance: Directly from the son of Lewis Shull, former President of the American Stamp Dealers of America and a poker-playing buddy of House Speaker Tip O’Neill. Included is a photocopy of an article from the January 10, 1987, issue of “The Stamp Wholesaler,” picturing Shull, O’Neill, and recently retired Chief Justice Warren E. Burger. From the article: “O’Neill was presented with a block of 10 of the 3c Supreme Court stamp (Scott #991 issued in 1950) that had been autographed by the nine active justices and retired Chief Justice Burger and mounted on Burger’s stationery. Burger was presented with two blocks of six of the 3c US Capitol stamp (#992 issued in 1950) mounted on the speaker’s stationery. It had been autographed by the Democrat and Republican leaders of both the Senate and the House … Shull had known O’Neill for many years and helped interest him in collecting covers autographed by visiting dignitaries.”

Dunham (b. 1949), American painter and print maker: "... initially influenced by Post- Minimalism, process art and conceptual art, he was soon attracted to the tactility and allusions to the body in the work of Brice Marden, Robert Mangold and Robert Ryman. Spurred on by the revival of interest in Surrealism in the 1970s, Dunham began to make abstract, biomorphic paintings reminiscent of the work of Arshile Gorky and André Masson, executed with a comic twist ..." - (Falconer, GROVE ART ONLINE). His work is widely represented in public and private collections. Extra shipping.
