        Pearl Bailey, who had served President Ford as a member of the United Nations delegation, received this handwritten letter from Gerald Ford who writes that he " was so proud to see your achievements recognized. Your article The Learning Train was magnificent …"

      n.p., May 2, 1990. 6.25" x 8.5". "Rare Autograph Letter Signed ""Jerry Ford,"" 1 page, 6.25"" x 8.5"". No place, May 2, 1990. To [entertainer] Pearl [Bailey]. Fine condition.In full, ""Dear Pearl: Thanks so much for your generous and thoughtful letter with the Scopus West and Y.N. Carmicle publications. I was so proud to see your achievements recognized. Your article - The Learning Train' was magnificent. My knee surgery was very successful. Painful for a couple of days but all's well now. I'm just impatient with the recovery time. We hope and pray your surgery will be 100%. You are in the best of hands. With all our love and admiration. Jerry Ford""In 1975, Pearl Bailey was named a Special Assistant to President Ford and a member of the United States Delegation to the United Nations. She frequently attended dinners at the Ford White House as a guest and entertainer. Bailey and her husband, jazz drummer Louis Bellson, had even spent a night at the Ford White House! She campaigned for President Ford in 1976.In 1988, President Ronald Reagan presented Pearl Bailey with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He announced: ""And the citation for Pearl Bailey Bellson: Pearl? As a girl, Pearl Bailey began singing in her father's church in Virginia and kept singing all the way to Broadway and into America's heart. Among the preeminent American entertainers of this century, she has dazzled audiences all over the world. She has also served the Nation as a Special Adviser to the United States Mission to the United Nations. And America loves Pearl Bailey, for her songs and for her soul."" Two months after Ford wrote this letter to Pearl Bailey, in July, she underwent the knee surgery - referred to by Ford in this letter - to replace her arthritic left knee with a metal and plastic joint. She left the hospital July 30th, walking with a cane but returned on August 17, 1990, complaining she was not feeling well. She died of coronary heart disease later that day."

        TYPED LETTER - Signed

      Nipomo, California 1990 - TYPED LETTER personally signed "Jeana Yeager" in blue ink. This letter in on VOYAGER ENTERPRISES, INC letterhead, measures 8.5" X 11" and is dated November 20, 1990. The letter states "Dear Victor: / Well it's been a process of YES-NO-YES-N) on the flight suits. I guess / I'm not quiet (sic) ready to let go of any of the artifacts. I haven't yet / had a chance to go through the archives and determine what all is there / and what items will need to be held onto for the Voyager museum later to / come. I apologize that I have let so much time go by. I will at last, pass / the letterhead on to Dick to allow him a chance to make a comment about / the World flights. Again, I'll say, try again later. One of these days / I may let go. I hope the Holidays bring Good Tidings. / Sincerely, / "Jeana Yeager" / Jeana Yeager. Horses, not flying, were Jeana Yeager's first love. Born in Fort Worth, Texas, Jeana moved to Garland when she was four years old. That year, Jeana's parents bought her the first of several horses. Jeana's father worked for Ling-Temco-Vought, which soon moved him and his family to Oxnard, California, where they stayed until 1963. Returning to Garland, Jeana picked up a new interest--track. Competing against other girls taught her how to win and lose--attributes which helped her when she began flying. Jeana's family moved to Commerce, Texas, when she was in the tenth grade. In 1977, she went to Santa Rosa, California, and worked as a draftsman and surveyor for a geothermal energy company. The next year she got a private pilot's license with the intention of learning to fly helicopters. However, before she could complete her lessons, the company she had contracted with failed. Still interested in flying, Jeana went to work for Robert Truax's Project Private Enterprise which sought to develop a reusable spacecraft. In 1980, Jeana's life changed when she met Dick Rutan at a Chino, California, airshow. A year later, the two of them decided to fly around the world, nonstop, unrefueled. They formed Voyager Aircraft, Incorporated, but were unable to find a commercial sponsor. Undeterred, they joined with Dick's brother, Burt Rutan, who designed, built, and sold home-built aircraft under the trade name Long EZ. Using Burt's aircraft, they set several aircraft speed and endurance records. In early 1982, Jeana set a new women's speed record for the 2,000-kilometer closed course. She broke the open-distance record of 2,427.1 statute miles in the fall of 1984 using the Vari Eze. In an attempt to set an endurance record, Jeana's aircraft lost part of its propeller--vibration shook the Long EZ so hard that the glass broke on the instruments. She skillfully landed the damaged aircraft on an interstate highway. Obtaining funds was a problem until Jeana initiated the Voyager Impressive People program which became the major source of money to build, test, and fly the aircraft. By mid-1986, Voyager was ready for the flight. She flew as copilot on a 116-hour flight and set a world's absolute distance record--the first time a woman had been listed in an absolute category. In December, the pair flew for over 9 days, setting yet another record, to complete the first nonstop, unrefueled flight around the world. Jeana's honors include the Collier Trophy (the first time ever awarded to a woman), a Presidential Citizens Medal, the Gold Medal from the Royal Aero Club of Great Britain, and many other prestigious honors.

        The Gulag Archipelago [First Russian Edition, Signed]

      Moscow: Kniga, 1990. First Russian Edition. A Very Good copy of the first (Kniga) permitted Russian edition of Nobelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn's magnum opus The Gulag Archipelago, first published in Russia in 1990, SIGNED BY ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN ON THE FIRST VOLUME'S TITLE PAGE AS FOLLOWS "ALEKSANDR SEGEEVICH TIKHOMIROV / A. SOLZHENITSYN." An outspoken critic of the Soviet Union's totalitarian government, Solzhenitsyn was allowed to publish (in an edited form) "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" (1962) and was thereafter banned from publishing his work in his homeland. Solzhenitsyn wrote The Gulag Archipelago between 1958 and 1968 based upon his own experience as a prisoner in a gulag labor camp as well as on eyewitness testimony of others and on his own research. [Gulag is an acronym for Glavnoye Upravleniye ispravitelno-trudovyh Lagerey, or "Chief Administration of Corrective Labour Camps".] The work was smuggled out of Russia and was first published in Paris in 1973. It also circulated in the Soviet Union in an underground publication -- published by hand and passed from reader to reader to avoid Soviet censorship. Solzhenitsyn won the 1970 Nobel Prize in Literature "for the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable traditions of Russian literature". Solzhenitsyn did not attend the Award Ceremony for fear that he would not be allowed to return home from Sweden. His speech was smuggled out of the Soviet Union and read at the ceremony. Solzhenitsyn was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974 and his citizenship was revoked. Portions of The Gulag Archipelago began to appear in "Novy Mir", a Russian Literary Magazine, in 1989 where approximately one third of the work was published over the course of three issues. Upon the restoration of Solzhenitsyn's Citizenship in 1990, the entire work was legally published in Solzhenitsyn's homeland for the first time (1990) in these three volumes, with Volume I containing parts 1–2, Volume II containing parts 3–4, and Volume III containing parts 5–7. All three Volumes are in Very Good condition with the third Volume having suffered some water damage to the the page block's bottom which has caused some wrinkling to the lower portion of the pages. The free endpapers and pastedowns have been renewed. A Very Good copy of the first legal publication of Nobelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn's magnum opus, SIGNED BY ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.

        Edwardian Tennis Match:Men's Doubles

      Italy, 1990. Oil on copper. Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged in polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provided a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including of course the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux.The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection.

        Germany and the Second World War: Volume 1. The Build-up of German Aggression: Vol 1. A fine first edition (thus).

      Clarendon Press 1990 - This is a fine, first English printing of this hugely important and impossibly difficult work to find. Although listed as an American publication, the copies issued in the UK (as this one was) were printed in Essex. The book is in quite magnificent condition and is without fault or blemish with the exception of a few very slight, almost imperceptible, toning spots to the top edge of the page block. Otherwise, the page block is white, tight and square. The navy blue boards are pristine as is the gilt lettering to the spine. The front end papers present a double page map showing the geographic changes to Europe between 1935 and 1939. The rear end papers present a map showing German Political and Economic Influence at the Outbreak of The Second World War. The unclipped dust wrapper is also fine; bright, complete and unmarked. The same dust wrapper was used for both the USA and British editions and thus shows no price. It is now protected by an acid free, removable archival cover. The book presents as new and unread. Generally regarded as one of the most authoritative and accurate historical works on the Second World War, the book was written by four eminent German historians (including Deist and Volkmann) and edited by the German Research Institute for Military History. This is Volume 1 of what was intended to be a ten volume series but consisted eventually of thirteen volumes. The preparation of this series has taken over thirty years and all volumes have not yet been translated. Volume 1 examines the systematic preparation for War by Germany from the outset of Nazi rule, through re-armament and the Nazification of German society at all levels, to the outbreak of the Second World War. As with most publications on the Second World War, authored by Germans, it lays the claim that the vast majority of the German people did not support Adolf Hitler and were opposed to the War. Many learned American historians paint a quite different picture. However, what cannot be denied is that this is arguably the most intensively researched and documented work on the early stages of German aggression. It has been described as a work of “unparalleled scope and authority”. Very few of these original books were purchased privately; most went to libraries and academic institutions. Copies of the first printing that are occasionally presented for sale are invariably ex library copies.

        Edwardian Golfers

      Italy, 1990. Oil on copper. Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged at polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provided a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including of course the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux. The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection.
