About this Item

World War II era Scrapbook from Charles (Charlie) Palmer. Green clothbound scrapbook housed in a brown paper covered slipcase. Folio. Approximately 36 pages used in the book, with many more unused. With a few envelopes of photo negatives, some large in size. The scrapbook contains various identification and membership cards for Charles Palmer, as well as items pertaining to his service in World War II. Serving as a private first class, it appears Palmer was an Official War Photographer (ID card present indicating such). Newsletters, paper clippings, meal cards and other paper ephemera associated with his service are present, including a letter that indicates he was nominated or received a Soldier's Medal for his actions in documenting a ship that had exploded in a port. An official letter regarding his request to find the grave of a fellow fallen soldier is included, as well as various military bulletins, photos and newspaper clippings of people, comics, theater tickets and other related type of items (from Italy) etc. also present. Some of the 3x4 inch negatives appear to depict soldiers or military type scenes, although this is hard to tell for certain, while the rest of the negatives are portraits of people. VERY GOOD condition, with minor fading and edgewear. Some fading and minor soiling to the slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 008869
