A Pocket Guide To Western Africa (For Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
1 A Pocket Guide To Western Africa (For Military Personnel 1943 WWII)
Washington D.C. Special Service Division, Army Services Forces, United States Army 1943 soft cover Very Good 
Handy and truly pocket-sized guide for WII soldiers serving in Africa. It measures just 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" and has 39 pages of information. There's also a map, a short history of the region, and what to do and not to do. Booklet is very clean and attractive. An example of the cautions is this one "Treat an Af5rican with some formality. Most Africans dislike horseplay and backslapping. They like to shake hands." I also have other guides for soldiers in other countries available.

Unknown location Unknown publisher Prior to 1884 Fine condition 
This is a very attractive personalized bookplate showing what appears to be a photograph of Mary Foster Nassau and her husband, Robert Hamill Nassau, who was both an ordained Presbyterian minister and medical doctor. Mary was his second wife who accompanied him to central Africa near the Ogowe River where they, along with Robert Nassau's sister, Isabelle, served as missionaries. Mary died in 1884. Her husband retired in Pennsylvania and in 1909 wrote a book titled "The Path She Trod: A Memorial of Mary Foster Nassau." Bookplate is clean and unused and measures 3-1/2" x 4-1/2". Very nice for a collector.

The Art Bulletin June 2006 (Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises)
17 The Art Bulletin June 2006 (Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises)
New York College Art Association 2006 Vol. LXXXVIII. No. 2 soft cover Very Good 
Very handsome high quality magazine printed on coated paper. Many articles, but I bought it for the one about Andy Warhol and his Silver Elvises. The article is a very long one at 17 pages measuring 9"x11" and illustrated throughout with black and white photographs. The author, David McCarthy, titled the article "Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises; Meaning Though Context at the Ferus Gallery in 1963." Wonderful not only for Elvis and Andy fans, but those who like the movies of the period. Other articles include ancient art, 17th century art, Louis Kahn, and Judaic Threads in West African tapestries. Practically a book! Magazine is clean and tightly bound with no names or writing and no labels. Only faults are a little edge wear to bottom of back cover and two flat creases at two outer back corners.
