Iwo Jima Springboard to Final Victory Book by Captain Raymond Henri
A recent purchase last week was a copy of Iwo Jima Springboard to Final Victory Book by Captain Raymond Henri A US Camera Book. Published in 1945, Springboard is one of the first books published about the battle. Although there is text, the book is mostly photographs, more than half that I haven't seen published in any other book. I love the pulp two tone cover of the flag raising photograph. These usually sell for around $15 and worth picking up for the many photographs I haven't seen in any other book.
