New York and London: D. Appleton-Century Company, 1942. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. Illustrated with photographs by Major F.A.R. Leitao, this manual for women shows defenses against various attack, holds, and wandering hands, including ways to use an umbrella and a matchbox for defensive purposes. Fairbairn "developed hand-to-hand combat methods for the Shanghai Police during the interwar period, as well as for the allied special forces during World War II" and has been suggested as the inspiration for Q Branch in the James Bond series (Wiki). In his introduction, the author writes, "It goes without saying that a woman should always know how to protect herself. In wartime - in America at war - this is doubly so." This copy bears the bookplate of Stewart and Annette Johnston, and is inscribed to Annette from someone named Roland, "On entering the Armed Forces - 1942" with a further note on the rear inside cover: "A hat pin is effective, too. I've heard". It's likely the gift inscription is in… Read more

Description:
A group of more than 60 letters from Bernard T. Lindsey (1922-99), Boatswain's Mate 1st Class, U.S. Navy to his wife, Julia (1924-95), in Sandersville, Georgia. Most of the content deals with Bernard's concern for Julia's health during her pregnancy with their first child, also named Bernard, and his concerns about her financial well-being in his absence. On July 15, 1943, he writes: "Sugar, I don't quite understand the full meaning of a leaking heart and just wonder if it can be fixed. It seems like everything happens to us doesn't it." She apparently is having a difficult pregnancy. He writes December 13, 1943: "I wish wouldn't feel so bad. I know your condition is bringing about all of this and Sugar I'm so sorry for you. I do wish I could be home with you like I am supposed to be. I am only hoping that everything will be OK and now you will be the proudest mother in the world when the kid comes." He writes her again on December 14, but then there is a short gap in the letters until December 27,… Read more
