[EPHEMERA], [WORLD WAR I] [AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY], [SCRAPBOOKS]
World War I Scrapbook of a United States Aerial Photographer / Observer
1918. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; World War I Scrapbook (13" x10" approx) with 48 pages from an instructor at the Second Aviation Instruction Center at Tours France, 1918. The scrapbook was the property of and photographed by James F(Fred) Chappell, who is best known as one of the early photographers at the Lick Observatory, and for whom the Chappell Crater on the Moon is named. The scrapbook includes 48 pages of various sized photographs taken by Chappell, starting with photographs of shipboard activities on the transport from the US to Tours France, candid photos of France and the French rural folk on their travel from the coast to Tours, and then to the compound of 2nd AIC (Second Aviation Instruction Center) which was founded by the French at the Tours Aerodrome and then given over for the use of the United States as a place for instructors in aerial observation and aerial gunnery to teach students. James F. Chappell became an instructor in Aerial Observation -- and ironically because the airplanes were crashing so often and had so many injuries and fatalities, Chappell and other instructors were forbidden from flying into combat, to keep from having excessive losses in the instructor corps. The latter half of the scrapbook includes many photographs of different styles of airplanes (both whole, and in pieces) , the ambulance crew, fire brigade, the camera guns, and aerial photographs and sundry accoutrement dealing with aerial photography, gunnery or observation. There are several rank advancement tickets, small souvenirs and occasional newspaper clippings associated with the school. Chappell graduated as one of the first classmen of the U. S. Army Aerial Photography class held at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. In all 278 photographs plus other ephemera regarding Chappell's tour of duty, starting from his transport in the US to the fields of Tours, France. This scrapbook holds an amazing amount of visual information regarding the early days of the Army Air Corps which became the United States Air Force in 1947.. Very Good .

Cyrus did not venture into Egypt, as he himself died in battle, fighting the Massagetae along the Syr Darya in December 530 BC. He was succeeded by his son, Cambyses II, who managed to add to the empire by conquering Egypt, Nubia, and Cyrenaica during his short rule.". Very Good .

Abbott (December 18, 1835 October 22, 1922) was an American Congregationalist theologian, editor, and author." "From 1881 Abbott was editor-in-chief of The Christian Union, renamed The Outlook in 1893; this periodical reflected his efforts toward social reform, and, in theology, a liberality, humanitarianism and nearly unitarian. The latter characteristics marked his published works also. Abbott's opinions differed from those of Beecher. Abbott was a constant advocate of social reform, and was an advocate of Theodore Roosevelt's progressivism for almost 20 years. He would later adopt a pronouncedly liberal theology. He was also a pronounced Christian Evolutionist. In two of his books, The Evolution of Christianity and The Theology of an Evolutionist, Abbott applied the concept of evolution in a Christian theological perspective. Although he himself objected to being called an advocate of Darwinism, he was an optimistic advocate of evolution who thought that "what Jesus saw, humanity is becoming." ". Very Good .

The front pastedown page has the remnants of a previous owner's ink stamped bookplate (which has been partly removed) . Several text pages have been dog-eared. "The origin of the Rollo Series is in some ways similar to the origin of Dicken's Pickwick Papers. A publisher is looking for text to accompany illustrations. In this instance in 1835, T. H. Carter, a Boston book publisher and agent, had 24 diverse illustrations that he wanted to put into a book format. He approached Abbott who eventually incorporated the pictures into The Little Scholar Learning to Talk. Rollo is not mentioned until the last lines of the book but of course he becomes the main character for the series that followed. Abbott was paid $150 for the book which was published by John Allen and Company. The fourteen Rollo Books starting with Learning to Talk and ending with the 1842 Rollo Philosophy Part IV-The Sky were the earliest multi volume children's series involving stories of a central character. These moralistic little tales were printed by numerous publishing houses into the twentieth century. "(Jacob Abbott website). Very Good- .

The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. "Shana Ab was born in Texas. She spent much of her childhood living in Colorado, with a brief stint in Mexico as a foreign exchange student, and, at age seventeen, lived in Japan as a model. Throughout her childhood, Ab wrote, completing what she calls "The Silliest Romance Novel Ever" during her free time during modeling shoots. [1] Her writing focused on romance, as those were the types of books that she most enjoyed reading. She later attended college in Los Angeles, graduating with a degree in drama. Her second novel, also a contemporary romance, took third place in a writing contest. She sent the book to several prospective agents, many of which responded with questions similar to "Nice voice but what line are you writing for?" Unwilling to try to fit her writing into some of the rules that governed contemporary romances, Ab chose to concentrate on historical romances. For her first attempt at a historical romance, the newlywed Ab chose to tell the story of her own romance with her husband, set in medieval times. The manuscript was purchased by Bantam Books and published as A Rose in Winter." (from Wikipedia). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket .

This copy has been signed by the author , with a short inscription on the half title page. "The Otomi traditionally worshipped the moon as their highest deity. Even in modern times, many Otomi populations practice shamanism and hold prehispanic beliefs such as Nagualism. Like most sedentary Mesoamerican peoples, Otomis traditionally subsisted on maize, beans and squash, but the maguey (century plant) was also an important cultigen used for production of alcohol (pulque) and fiber (henequen). Although the Otomi Indians rarely eat what Westerners would consider a balanced diet, they maintain reasonably good health by eating tortillas, drinking pulque, and eating most fruits available around them. In 1943 to 1944, a report about a nutritional study about the Otomi villages located in the Mezquital Valley of Mexico, recorded that despite the arid climate and land unfit for agriculture without irrigation, the Otomi people chiefly depended on the production of maguey. Maguey (century plant) is used to produce weaving fibers and pulque, a fermented unfiltered juice that played an important part in the Otomis economy and nutrition."

"LOS ANGELES -- Dr. Murray Abowitz, blacklisted during the House Un-American Activities Committee's Hollywood Hearings in 1951 because of his alleged affiliation with the American Communist Party, has died of lung cancer. It was disclosed Sunday that Abowitz died at last Wednesday at Temple Hospital. He was 70. His membership in the Hollywood Independent Citizens Committee in the 1940s -- an organization to which Ronald Reagan once belonged -- and other political groups accused of having commmunist leanings resulted in his removal from the staffs of Cedars of Lebanon Hospital and the USC Medical School. Abowitz, who was brought before the House committee with 20 other physicians took the Fifth Amendment, saying: 'I do not wish to comment on any stool pigeon's testimony ever before the House Un-American Activities Committee which has contributed so greatly to the obstruction of Constitutional liberties and to make this country a land of spies and informers.'
