    Family Photo Album from Nazi Germany [1934-1935]

    1935. 13 by 9 inches. 48 leaves, with tissue interleaving. More than 200 small photographs depicting family visits around Germany in 1934-1935. All the the images are captioned in a neat hand. The album opens with four views of a Nazi rally. Other images show the Graf Zeppelin. The author of the album (unknown to this cataloguer) apparently was a doll collector, as a number of pages are devoted to photographs of doll stores. Most of the photographs show members of the family visiting sites, swimming, boating, and standing around in fine clothes. An interesting look at typical German life early in the Nazi regime. ISBN: 281AIB1037960.

    One small image missing; covers lightly stained, else very good. [JSP02; JSP04]

  • Master-Sarg [pseudonym of John Winston Heming]
    A Yank Discovers Australia

    First Edition

    Sydney: The Currawong Publishing Company, [n.d. but 1945?]. 76 pages. Illustrated by Walter Dowman. Purports to be a description of Australia written by an American soldier. However, the Bibliography of Australian Literature (by John Arnold) attributes the book to J. W. Heming, a prolific writer of the mid-20th century under a variety of pseudonyms. The publisher advertises that it only publishes Australian authors, giving further credence to the Heming attribution. A survey of the text suggests the author isn't really American. So, in summary, an interesting introduction to Australian life and culture written for American soldiers stationed Down Under at the end of the Second World War. ISBN: B0007K59CC.

    First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. An attractive copy of a poorly made book.
