HOSTAGE DEAL
If I manage get out of this situation how about dinner Friday?


You should always thank your human shield. It's a tough job and they deserve some acknowledgment. Piège en enfer fits perfectly into our growing collection of hostage art, and in fact it's one of the best covers of this type we've seen yet. The book was written by Paul Berg, aka André Jammet, for Editions S.E.G., published in 1965, and the title means “trap in hell,” which seems about right considering what's developing here. The art is uncredited—not unusual for S.E.G., but it's always a shame. Maybe someone should have taken the editors hostage and explained that covers should always be attributed.

HEATING UP
To Caledonia and back again.

We have more from Editions S.E.G.’s Espionnage Service-Secret collection today, this time Paul Berg’s 1964 thriller Ça chauffe,,, en Calédonie, which translates to “Things Are Getting Hot… in Caledonia.” This one was issued twice by S.E.G., and you see both covers above, one of considerably higher artistic quality than the other, but both by unknowns. Berg was a pseudonym used by French writer André Jammet, who also wrote twenty years later under the name Celine Jammet for Fleuve Noir’s Femme Viva collection. We’ll have more from S.E.G. a bit later.

PERUVIAN CONNECTION
Here's a lama, there's a lama, and another little lama


To offset the ridiculous cover above, we thought we’d share something a bit more traditionally pulp, so here you see the front of Jerôme Caval’s 1964 thriller Le lama de Lima, which means, well, exactly what it looks like it means. The book is volume 30 of the Espionnage Service-Secret collection from the Parisian publisher S.E.G., and the brilliant art is uncredited.

The headlines that mattered yesteryear.

1928—Earhart Crosses Atlantic Ocean
American aviator Amelia Earhart becomes the first woman to fly in an aircraft across the Atlantic Ocean, riding as a passenger in a plane piloted by Wilmer Stutz and maintained by Lou Gordon. Earhart would four years later go on to complete a trans-Atlantic flight as a pilot, leaving from Newfoundland and landing in Ireland, accomplishing the feat solo without a co-pilot or mechanic.

1939—Eugen Weidmann Is Guillotined
In France, Eugen Weidmann is guillotined in the city of Versailles outside Saint-Pierre Prison for the crime of murder. He is the last person to be publicly beheaded in France, however executions by guillotine continue away from the public until September 10, 1977, when Hamida Djandoubi becomes the last person to receive the grisly punishment.
1972—Watergate Burglars Caught
In Washington, D.C., five White House operatives are arrested for burglarizing the offices of the Democratic National Committee in the Watergate Hotel. The botched burglary was an attempt by members of the Republican Party to illegally wiretap the opposition. The resulting scandal ultimately leads to the resignation of President Richard Nixon, and also results in the indictment and conviction of several administration officials.

1961—Rudolph Nureyev Defects from Soviet Union
Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev defects at Le Bourget airport in Paris. The western press reported that it was his love for Chilean heiress Clara Saint that triggered the event, but in reality Nuryev had been touring Europe with the Kirov Ballet and defected in order to avoid punishment for his continual refusal to abide by rules imposed upon the tour by Moscow.
