9 CLOSE, UPTON [pseudonym for HALL, JOSEF WASHINGTON] Behind the face of Japan.
New York D. Appleton-Century Co. , 1942 Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Xii,427 pages, map endpapers, cloth, dj, very good. From the archives of Time Magazine: "Nov. 28, 1960. Died. Upton Close (real name: Josef Washington Hall), 66, retired war correspondent, author and radio commentator, whose obsessive orientalism led to his dismissal from NBC in 1944 because he demanded that U.S. put Asia first on list of wartime targets (rather than Europe); in the collision of his auto with a train; near Guadalajara, Mexico. A prescient analyst of Far East developments in the 1930s. Close predicted Japanese war aims and the rise of Red China. In the 1940s he helped organize reactionary American Action, Inc., bitterly opposed the U.N. ("All this idealism is the bunk")." From the dust jacket: "Mr. Close gives a full-length portrait of what lies behind the celebrated 'face,' the 'so-sorry' attitude of Japan. He reveals the Japanee philosophy, gives thumbnail portraits of important personalities, and without a doubt supplies the Western world with one of the best background books of the War in the Pacific now available.

48 pages, well illustrated (some in color) , pictorial wrappers, very good. From the introduction; ': The object of this book therefore is to give a concise idea of the Japanese Army's background, together with details of dress and infantry weapons, etc." From the collection of Laurence Dring and with his business card "Soldier of fortune . . . You call we maul ". From the Soldier of Fortune obituary by Jim Graves: "Lawrence W. Dring II, whose almost legendary career in Special Forces was described in a three-part Soldier of Fortune magazine series - February, March and April 1982 - died 25 August 1983 of a seizure and heart attack caused by complications from wounds he suffered in Vietnam. In four tours in Vietnam - most of it with MIKE Forces (Mobile Guerrilla Force) in the Central Highlands - Dring carved out a career as a soldier that frankly, I don't know who could match. Dring started out as an enlisted man and came out in 1968 as a captain. Along the way he earned, among other decorations, many of the medals grunts have respect for: two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars, two Soldier's Medals, the Cambodian Medaille Militaire, four Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry and five Purple Hearts."

19 FLETCHER, GRACE NIES The bridge of love.
New York E. P. Dutton & Co. , 1967 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
220 pages, 4 plates, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: The marriage of Merrell Vories, young American architect, and Maki Hitotsuyanagi, daughter of a Japanese nobleman, was remarkable from the very beginning. For never before had a member of the Imperial Household been permitted to marry a foreigner, Maki renounced her noble birth and gave up a life of wealth - in exchange for a life of love and accomplishment. For Merrill and Maki had much in common: a belief in Christianity and a desire to help the people of Japan. Merrell Vories had founded the Omi Brotherhood, which started as a simple youth center and Bible class. He used his talents as an architect to earn the money for his aw-inspiring program of religious and educational projects. And he carried his ethics into his business: he insisted on shorter working hours for those who labored on his buildings . . .
