Description: [Military/WWII] Over 42 Items. ++ Over 40 press photos related to operations in Europe (mostly in France). Signal Corps (so indicated by rubber stamps on many versos). From the collection of Robert F. Bogart (active duty Nov. 20, 1944 - Aug. 23, 1946). His service included 10 months as a Photo Unit Commander in the Signal Corps, then 6 months as a Motion Picture Cameraman, then 4 months as a Still Photographic Officer. Many have a month and date either in the text stamped on the verso and/or in the text that appears at the base of the image. The press photos are probably photographs of larger-format photographs. 2 are June 8 [1944], of which 1 shows fallen soldiers and 1 shows soldiers with what might have been considered minor wounds. A couple others show aircraft or other military hardware shortly after the D-Day invasion. Others are mostly mid-June to Dec. 1944. One verso has a note handwritten by Bogart in late 1945. Images include military vehicles, war damage, soldiers, and dignitaries. Several versos rubber stamped “For Official Use Only/ Not For Publication.” This is probably a reference to the photos not being cleared for release in the short term; they were clearly intended to be published at some point. Most images 4 ½ x 6 ¾, some a bit smaller. Very good. ++ Photograph of a handshake in front of a clergyman. Contemp mount. ++ Official Inaugural Program: January 20, 1937. (Wash: Randsell Incorporated Publishers, 1937). 4to. Orig wraps worn, foxed, lacking inserts. 1.8 Lb.
