    About the MAR'ASHI NAJAFI LIBRARY (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Ayatollah Marashi Najafi Library, in Qom, is the third largest library in Iran, after the Central Library of Astan Quds Razavi, and the Library of Parliament, as well as being the world's third largest Islamic library, with more than 250,000 books.

    The library began as the personal library of the founder, Ayatollah Marashi Najafi, a prominent Islamic scholar known for his dedication to religious scholarship and education throughout his life, who began collecting rare texts as a student, partly to keep them from being possessed by the British colonial authorities. Marashi Najafi died shortly after laying the foundation stone of a new library building in 1989. His will states: Bury me at the entrance of the library so that the feet of the researchers of Islamic sciences step beside my grave.

    The library was founded in 1963, with further expansion in 1974 and 1988. It is situated one hundred yards from the Fatima Masumeh Shrine in Qom, where Marashi Najafi was a cleric. The cost of the library was at first personally financed by its founder and his descendants; but, beginning in 1997, the library began to be funded as a governmental institution with its operation still overseen by Marashi Najafi's family but in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance. Ayatollah Khomeini once remarked that, "the library of Ayatollah Marashi Najafi is an unparalleled library and perhaps unrivaled in Iran".

    As of 2003, manuscripts, rare books, and lithographs amounted to 60,000 in number, with 65% in Arabic, and the rest in Persian, Turkish, Urdu, and other languages. Among these volumes are unique texts of many famous Islamic authors. The most ancient of these treasures show the history of the Qur'an from the late 2nd and 3rd centuries A.H.; including the oldest two component version of the Qur'an in Kufic script, of Ali bin Hilal, also known as Ibn Abolhasan Ali Ibn Hilal, as well as two volumes of interpretation; the Nahj al-Balagha of Sharif Razi; the Gospel in Latin; and copies of the Avesta.******

    No information about where this old photocopied archive was made or came from, possibly by and from the U.S. State Department - Documents Unit, but I have no idea. What I do know is this is the only copy I have, or have ever seen.

    Complete copy. Each page has a number stamped on the bottom margin (not stamped directly on this photocopy but on the original documents that this copy was made from). The numbers run consecutively from 64273 to 64865 (592 pages), plus there are approximately 10 pages that repeat the preceding page's number (e.g. 64423, 64424, 64424, 64425), plus one page number, 64319, that was skipped. I have examined each of the 600 pages.

    In addition to the hundreds of letters and telegrams, the archive has 10 pages that list all the documents in chronological order. There are also some blanks, pages with holographic writing, etc.

    This photocopied archive is contained in an old wooden file box that has a hinged lid and a great old metal spring clamp on the inside.

    GOOD Condition: The pages all have early photocopy machine marks, lines, spots, gray areas and smudges; they are lightly age toned; some of the pages have tears, creases and edgewear, but all are complete and fully legible. The box has some fraying to its edges and is splitting at a couple of the folds, but is still sturdy and doing its job well.

    RARE look at Italy in its Nazi period, from the eyes of the German Ambassador stationed in Rome at the time.

    About HANS GEORG VON MACKENSEN (from Wikipedia):

    ******Hans Georg von Mackensen, b.1883 d.1947, was a German diplomat who served as Secretary of State at the Foreign Ministry, German ambassador in Rome, and a SS senior Group Leader.

    In May 1933 von Mackensen became a member of the NAZI Party. In December 1933 he became Germany's senior diplomat in Budapest. Four years later he was recalled to Berlin where he took over as first Secretary of State at the Foreign Ministry. He was then appointed Ambassador to Rome. The Rome embassy was an exceptionally important posting. On 30 January 1942 he was appointed an SS Group Leader (Gruppenführer) on the staff of Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler.

    The Anglo-American invasion of Sicily in July 1943 brought forward various crises for Mussolini, including a crisis in his relationship with Hitler. The German ambassador in Italy, Hans Georg von Mackensen, was naturally involved, and suggested that Marshal Rommel be given military command over Italy. The crisis culminated in a hastily arranged meeting at Feltre between Hitler and Mussolini which took place on 19 July 1943, less than a week before Mussolini's dismissal by his king.

    On 2 August 1943, following a talk with Hitler, von Mackensen was relieved of his post. He nevertheless retained his position as a general in the SS.

    In May 1945 he was captured by French forces, held as a prisoner of war till April 1946. Following his release he remained in the French occupation zone, dying in a Konstanz hospital on 28 September 1947.******

    "Italian neorealism is a national film movement characterized by stories set amongst the poor and the working class, filmed on location, frequently using non professional actors. Italian neorealism films mostly contend with the difficult economic and moral conditions of post World War II Italy, representing changes in the Italian psyche and conditions of everyday life, including poverty, oppression, injustice, and desperation." - Wikipedia

    A novel about a fictional young musical genius who is poisoned by a jealous colleague. It is a dark and moody tale, loosely based on the idea that Mozart was poisoned by fellow composer, Antonio Salieri.

    Published by Otto Wigand, Leipzig (Germany), second edition, 1838.

    Half leather (leather spine and corners) and marbled paper covered boards, 4.5x7 inches (11x17 cm), 294 pages. TEXT in GERMAN FRAKTUR (i.e. hard to read!)

    GOOD condition: The covers are rubbed along the edges, corners, spine ends and spine folds, but are still sturdy and attractive; internally, there is a previous owner's name on the front free endpaper and bookplate on the front pastedown, light foxing and age spots to the pages, otherwise the pages are tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A solid, presentable copy of this unusual novel.

    RARE in its true 1838 printing.

    About the author GUSTAV NICOLAI:

    ******Gustav Alexander Wilhelm Nicolai, b.1795 d.1868, was a German writer and composer. His friends included the composers Adolf Bernhard Marx, Gaspare Spontini and Carl Loewe, for whom he wrote the oratorio libretto Die Zerstörung von Jerusalem, set to music by Loewe in 1833. Frederick William III of Prussia rewarded Nicolai with a golden box for the same libretto. The king was one of his main supporters, giving him the Gold Medal for Art and Science. Nicolai became widely known for his writing, especially his travelogue on Italy. Nicolai corresponded with Robert Schumann and wrote several books including Der Musikfeind: Ein Nachtstück.******

(In 1963 the Institute of the Aerospace Sciences merged with the American Rocket Society to form the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics "AIAA")

    A collection of 34 technical papers and reports related to early manned space flight, many illustrated with b&w drawings, photographs, charts and graphs. The reports include: Design for Manned Space Flight, The X-15 Program, Mercury Spacecraft Systems, Control Systems for Manned Earth-Lunar Spacecraft, The Restricted Three Body Problem, Survival Aspects of the Lunar-Landing Mission, Meteoroid Effects on Space Exploration, and Many More.

    Of special note is the PILOT'S FLIGHT REPORT, by JOHN H. GLENN, JR. It is his report on the famous February 20, 1962 Mercury Flight that circled the earth. The report is 14 pages long, consisting of 8 pages of double column text and 6 pages of b&w photographs. The report is on pages 296-309

    Softcovers, 8.5x11 inches, 318 pages.

    FAIR condition: Ex the LOCKHEED MISSILE & SPACE COMPANY (LMSC), Palo Alto, California, with the Company's ink stamp on the inside front cover and title page, an ink stamp on the front cover that says: "Discarded from LMSD Library" (Lockheed Missile & Space Division Library), a checkout label, shelving numbers and some other library marks here and there. Ex-lib aside, the covers have 1 inch of splitting at the bottom of the spine, creased corners, and some edge wear; internally there is a light crease to the upper corner of the pages, otherwise they are tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. A complete, solid, used copy with a cool ex-library provenance.

    Note that among the four people whose names are handwritten on the checkout label is Gevarter, likely William B. Geverter, NASA engineer and author of several books on Artificial Intelligence, who checked out the book in 1964. The other three last names are Plaskett, Douman, and (N?) D. Alexander. Might be interesting to research those individuals.

    A rare collection of technical papers relating to early manned space flight, including the John Glenn report.

    Boukreev had a reputation as an elite mountaineer in international climbing circles for summiting K2 in 1993 and Mount Everest via the North Ridge route in 1995, and for his solo speed ascents of some of the world's highest mountains. HE BECAME EVEN MORE WIDELY KNOWN FOR SAVING THE LIVES OF CLIMBERS DURING THE 1996 MOUNT EVEREST DISASTER (as described in his book THE CLIMB, St. Martin's Press, 1997).

    In 1997, Boukreev was killed in an avalanche during a winter ascent of Annapurna in Nepal. He was 39 years old.******
