Description:

Steinkamp was a lieutenant colonel (U.S.A.F.) who, as chief of the Department of Astroecology at the School of Aviation Medicine at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas, pioneered the study of space on the human body; he built a capsule to simulate space conditions and, from February 10 to February 16, 1958, Airman First Class Farrell lived in it. TLS from Steinkamp, 1p, 8" X 10½", Randolph Air Force Base, TX, 1958 March 20. Addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Bruno J. Gianetti. Good plus. Small show-through from tape stain on verso at each corner and bit of wrinkling and wear near bottom. On letterhead of the School of Aviation Medicine headquarters, Steinkamp thanks this couple for their interest in his work, adding, "It gives me great pleasure to send you an autographed photo of myself and one of Donald sitting in the space cabin simulator." Bold full signature in blue ballpoint. The last-mentioned photograph is also present: PS from Farrell, 10" X 8", n.p., n.y. [official U.S.A.F. photo stamp on verso notes Randolph Air Force Base and dated 19 March 1958]. Very good. One small edge tear; small mounting traces on verso. Famous photo of Farrell seated in the cramped simulator, facing the viewer, with the steel door open, and Steinkamp standing outside the simulator at right. In a light portion of the steel door left of center, the airman pens "Best Wishes! / Donald G. Farrell" in black ink. An interesting, unusual and scarce pair, each signed about one month after the famed simulation. A fascinating footnote in aviation history. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Reknowned linguist, professor of philology and author whose books of cultural criticism and cultural history strove to make his subject matter enjoyable to the lay reader. Superb and meaty Typed Letter Signed, 1p, 8½" X 11", Glen Ridge, NY, 1968 October 20. Addressed to Marshall E. Bean. Fine. On Columbia University letterhead, Pei recommends an essay from his latest book, "The America We Lost," and quotes from it at length. He tells the story of Louis, an elevator operator he knew in New York who teaches him that no matter what you do in life you should master it and do it well. In part: "We cannot all be scholars or intellectuals. We can't all occupy big, important posts. All men are equal in the sight of God, but He has not seen fit to endow them all with equal equipment. To some he has given more brains, to others more brawn, a better physique, better health, a more cheerful disposition, a more fetching personality. What matters is that we put to work, honestly and faithfully, the talents entrusted to us. The man who mastered the art of running an elevator to the point where he could make a perfect stop every time is in God's eyes the equal of the man who runs wells the affairs of an entire nation." Provocative words to live by! Accompanied by an IPS, 5" X 3½", n.p., n.d. Fine. Interesting closeup portrait of the professor with a row of books in the foreground, nicely signed and inscribed. The pair. Bookseller Inventory # 28482

Book Description American editor, author and playwright well known for his many "Saturday Evening Post" appearances. TLS, 1p, 8¼" X 11", Groton, NY, 1956 October 5. Addressed to George Gianetti. Very good. Bit of wear; minor tape stains on verso. Delightful note to an admirer: "While I hope you live as long as I have and longer, I hope you won't get as beat-up looking and feeling. There must be some way of avoiding it, if you begin young. some 20 years ago, a magazine editor friend of mine asked me for a photo to run with some advertising. I sent him the best I had. Then he wrote back. asking me if I didn't have one with hair on. Since I was bald before I ever met him, I decided to really surprise him. So I went to a photographer and had a picture made with hair on my head. Around the Saturday Evening Post editorial rooms, this was considered rather funny. here is one of them. Like the girl who wasn't named Miss America, I wish I were better looking." Bold full signature. Accompanied by the aforementioned photograph: IPS, 10" X 8", n.p., n.y. Very good. Absolutely delightful closeup of a very bald Brooks in pullover sweater and tie at the right, facing left and looking into a small wall mirror (which faces the photo's viewer) -- in which Brooks' reflection WITH A FULL HEAD OF HAIR gazes out! A superb example of dark room trickery. In a light area of his sweater at the photo's lower right, he boldly inscribes and signs in black ink: "For / George Gianetti / with my best wishes / Geo S Brooks." The most fun and unusual signed photograph we've ever handled -- and we've handled a great many. Bookseller Inventory # 31339

Book Description This noted Illinois senator (1949-67) was also a respected economist, author of "The Theory of Wages" (1934), "Economy in the National Government" (1952), "In the Fullness of Time" (1972) and other titles. Outstanding TLS, 1p, 8" X 10½", Washington, DC, 1966 January 21. Addressed to Mary McCarthy and John A. Werner. Fine. On "Congress of the United States" letterhead, the famed liberal Democrat writes to two educators at the North Chicago Community High School "about guiding the direction of your lives." In part: "You and your contemporaries will do well to contemplate the fact that, although the future may seem wholly obscure to you right now, the pattern of your lives is, to a considerable extent, already determined. Your character will not change greatly, even though with the years you may acquire greater wisdom and experience. nd it is your character that determines your conduct at each moment of decision in your life. Certainly it is never too late to strive for self-improvement. But if, at the age of seventeen or eighteen, you are habitually dishonest or lazy or greedy or cruel, you probably do not have any incentive to reform yourself. If you are honest and humane and unselfish now, you have a set of standards that will guide you in the paths of righteousness and help you to shun false values." Goes on along these frank but inspirational lines excellent original content, not simply boilerplate politician pablum. Large, bold full signature in blue ballpoint. Accompanied by a superb 8" X 10" glossy black-and-white head-and-shoulders portrait of a smiling Douglas in suit and tie. Bookseller Inventory # 39180
