Two unopened pages in index, corners bumped, offsetting to half-title and verso of front free endpaper from laid in article, previous owner's signature on half-title page; text clean. No dust jacket. "From May 1945 until February 1946, I served as a Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Officer in Germany. During the first four months of this assignment, I was engaged in field work which included the recovery of looted works of art from . a monastery in Czechoslovakia, a salt mine in Austria, and a castle in Bavaria . This book is primarily an account of my own experiences in connection with these absorbing tasks; but I have also chronicled the activities of a number of my fellow officers, hoping thereby to provide the reader with a more comprehensive estimate of the work as a whole than the resumé of my own duties could have afforded" (author's note).

Item Description: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis & New York, 1946. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. This is a Stated First Edition. The previous owner of this book, Elizabeth H. Jones, knew a great deal about European Art and particularly about the restoration of art. She was, for 22 years, the head conservator of the Harvard art museums. Included in the book is a postcard sent to her while she was an Instructor in Fine Arts at the Fog Museum of Art. So it should not be surprising that she 'conserved' this book with great care. The covers are unsoiled and unworn, although the absence of a dust jacket has led to some fading of the spine including the gilt lettering. The book is very square and solidly bound. Opening up the book, you can see at the edges of the inside cover little bits of paper that are likely from the dust jacket (see the 4th photo of the front end papers). The end papers are a map of the American zone in Germany after World War II and the surrounding countries. There's a little bookshop label at the bottom. There's a frontispiece of two b&w photos and there are a good number of other photos in the book. The pages and photos are very clean with a rare spot of light soiling. There's no writing or markings on any of the pages. Bookseller Inventory # 000365
