Item Description: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1946. Hardcover. First edition. Good in a good dust jacket. No statement of edition, presumed first. This copy enigmatically inscribed by Bourke-White on the front free endpaper: "Because of our mutual silences," and is signed by her as Peggy. The jacket is heavily edgeworn; the boards are stained, the cloth on the spine is frayed-- the great (and perhaps only) redeeming feature of this copy is the unusual and evocative inscription.

Item Description: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1944. Hardcover. Margaret Bourke-White (illustrator). First Edition. Illustrated with photographs by Bourke-White. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to famous pilot Eddie Rickenbacker on a large piece of paper pasted to the front endpaper: "For my good friend/Eddie Rickenbacker/with all best/Margaret Bourke-White." Medal of Honor-winning World War I aviator Eddie Rickenbacker first gained fame in the formative years of auto racing as a driver. Before owning and operating the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, he participated in some of the first 500-mile races held there finishing in tenth place in 1914. Rickenbacker flew a total of 300 combat hours, reportedly more than any other U.S. pilot in World War I, and his 26 victories as a pilot constituted an American record that stood until World War II. After the war, he started an unsuccessful automobile company, but his most lasting business endeavor was his lifelong leadership of Eastern Air Lines which Rickenbacker transformed from a small airline to a major international transportation company. A gritty account by the first female journalist to be attached to the U.S. Army in World War II of her experiences with the Fifth Army during the Italian Campaign. The only other copy of this title we have seen that was signed was also on a piece of paper pasted in. It is likely that Bourke-White was "in the field" upon publication and unable to sign the book itself. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 013929

The inside of the card reads "1942, Horseplay Hill, Darien, Connecticut." Slightest of foxing on card, else very good; the photo is bright. A well known self-portrait by Bourke-White, made aboard ship after leaving the Soviet Union in 1941. Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bourke-White and Caldwell decided to separate with Caldwell going to Hollywood and Bourke-White joining the war effort; they divorced in 1942. The photo is reproduced on p. 187 of Bourke-White's PORTRAIT OF MYSELF, but the printed legend on this card is unique - given the sarcastic tone, it is presumed that Bourke-White sent this card to her intimates to announce her divorce.

Quarto, original photographic stiff paper covers. $4200.Scarce soft-bound Modern Age edition (published same year as cloth-bound first), inscribed on the half title, ÒFor Mr. Jack Meike, Cordially Margaret Bourke-White,Ó a pioneering classic with 75 deep photogravures of the Dust Bowl by Bourke-White and text by novelist Erskine Caldwell.ÒThis Ôword-and-picture portrait of the share-cropping SouthÕ told the truth in both text and image about a reality hidden to most Americans at the timeÓ (Roth, 94). As one of Life magazineÕs first photojournalists, Margaret Bourke-White Òhelped create and define the look of picture magazines in the United States.Ó During the Dust Bowl, her skillful wedding of two seemingly incompatible styles, a Òhard-edged theatrical style partaking of the machine-age estheticÉ [and a] no-nonsense style indebted to the Farm Security AdministrationÕs photography project. [She brought] into high relief the disparity between industrial society and those displaced by itÓ (New York Times). ÒThe most commercially successful of American documentary photobooksÉ and one of the most controversial,Ó the highly influential You Have Seen Their Faces was a collaboration with Bourke-WhiteÕs future husband, writer Erskine Caldwell (Parr & Badger I:122, 140). As issued without dust jacket. See Open Book, 124. Interior fine, lightest edge-wear, minimal rubbing to spine ends of bright fragile paper covers. A near-fine copy, scarce inscribed. Signed.

Item Description: No binding. Original platinum photograph. Measuring 15.5" x 7.5". Stamped on the verso ("A Margaret Bourke-White Photograph"). Undated, but our research indicates sometime between 1934 and 1938. The photograph depicts twelve popular journalists and authors of the period, and is Signed by each of them. The photograph, apparently of King Features syndicated columnists and cartoonists, was from the estate of Fred I. Archibald, the publisher of several newspapers including the *Baltimore News-Post*, and the *Baltimore American*. Among the represented authors, all whom have Signed the photograph, are Damon Runyon, William Soskin, O.O. McIntyre (author of the most widely syndicated column of the first quarter of the 20th Century, *New York Day By Day*), B.C. Forbes (founder of *Forbes* magazine, and the father of Malcolm Forbes), journalist Bugs Baer, Wally Knickerbocker, fashion editor (and longtime Miss America Pageant judge) Prunella Wood, Alice Hughes, Gilbert W. Gabriel, Lewis Reid, cartoonist W.J. Enright, and one other gentleman we have been unable to identify. Bookseller Inventory # 56920

Item Description: 1963. New York: Simon and Schuster. First edition. Octavo. Cloth and paper covered boards. Edges have a trace of soiling. Lower tip of rear panel is slightly worn else very good in lightly shelfworn and price clipped dustjacket. This copy has been inscribed in ink on the front fly by author and photographer Margaret Bourke-White in her shakey hand, no doubt, a result of the Parkinson's disease with which she suffered from just about the time she turned 50. The inscription reads "For/charming author-/long suffering/___ ___/with best wishes/from/Margaret". On the following page Bourke-White has additionally written in a larger, apparently more shakey hand "the Hand Writing has/improyaed(sic) a little,/I hope/Sept. 10-1967". Finally the author has signed her name in full (again, with an unsteady hand) between the title of the book and her printed name on the title page. Additionally, laid in is a TLS folded twice on the printed letterhead of Margaret Bourke-White which reads "Miss Bourke-White askes me to /apologize for the delay in getting this book to you./She asks me to send you her warmest wishes for a Happy New/Year./Sincerely,/Mike White (signed in ink)/December 28, 1967". The signatory, Mike, was the nickname of the author's sister-in-law, Anne "Mike" White, who was married to Margaret's younger brother Roger. Roger Bourke White (1911Ð2002) was a Cleveland businessman who co-founded Glastic Corporation. Evidently "Mike" took care of Margaret's dealings during her period of declining health towards the end of her life in 1971. An incredible copy of an excellent autobiography by one of the great and most admired photojournalist's of the 20th century and no doubt the most famous female photojournalist in the world. This unique copy giving some insight, through the declining penmanship, into the last years of her life and her suffering. An incredible book. Bookseller Inventory # 9169 WM
