He was a Member of Parliament (MP) and Parliamentary Private Secretary to Prime Minister Lloyd George and Winston Churchill. Additional ink signature to front free-endpaper of volume I, of D. B. E Hiths, liberal candidate for Paddington North, March 1966. David Lloyd George, 1st Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor OM, PC (17 January 1863 26 March 1945) was a British Liberal politician and statesman. He was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at the head of a wartime coalition government between the years 191622 and was the Leader of the Liberal Party from 192631. During a long tenure of office, mainly as Chancellor of the Exchequer, he was a key figure in the introduction of many reforms which laid the foundations of the modern welfare state. He was the last Liberal to be Prime Minister, as his coalition premiership was supported more by Conservatives than by his own Liberals, and the subsequent split was a key factor in the decline of the Liberal Party as a serious political force. Condition: In decorativecloth bindings. Externally sound, spines attractive though faded, slight splitting to head and tail of volume I. Water damage to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Lovely and bright and clean throughout, other than mild tidemarks to some plates, spotting to endpapers only. Overall: GOOD.

        5 eigenh. Briefe mit U. ("JBreuer").

      Meran, Wien und o. O., 1912 bis 1919.. Zusammen 12¾ SS. auf 8 Bll. (Qu.-)8vo.. An Freunde und eine Dame. Der erste Brief mit Dank für Glückwünsche zu seinem 70. Geburtstag: "Ich habe, um niemand zu übersehen, meinen Dank in alphabetischer Reihe ausgesprochen und ich kann nicht läugnen, dass allmälig meine herzlich u. innig empfundenen Worte des Dankes mir blöd, hohl u. leer vorkamen. Ich habe schliesslich nähere Freunde gebeten, alles weitere und eingehendere Aussprechen auf das mündliche Verfahren nach meiner Rückkehr verschieben zu dürfen. Ich hätte auch Sie darum gebeten, wenn nicht Ihr Brief vor mir läge. Der erneuert in mir das Gefül glücklicher Beschämung, das seit dem 15. in mir ist u. mich in einen leichten Dunst versetzt [...] Aber gesto[h]lenes Obst u. geschenktes Lob schmeckt am besten. Nicht bloss die göttliche Gabe des Calvinismus ist freies unverdientes Geschenk, auch das Beste was uns von unsern Mitmenschen kömmt, ihre Freundschaft u. Liebe ist unverdient [...] Doch ist sie ein Glück, vorausgesetzt, dass man dessen bewusst bleibt, wie freies Geschenk sie ist u. sich davor hütet, dass die Gabe einem in Eitelkeit den Character verdirbt [...]" (Meran, 23. I. 1912). - Nach einer Vermittlungs-Aktion Breuers zwischen verfeindeten Personen: "Ich höre dass Frau Jo mit den confirmirten Kindern gestern auf der H[ohen] Warte waren. Lassen Sie mich Ihnen herzlich dafür danken; ich wäre sehr froh, wenn ich denken dürfte, dass Sie es auch ein wenig mir zu Liebe getan haben. Ich weiss wol der 'Mittler' der Walverwandtschaften ist ein recht lächerlicher Patron, aber doch ein braver Kerl. Ich schäme mich gar nicht, auch so lächerlich zu sein [...]" (Wien, 3. V. 1912]). - "Es liegt u. lag mir ganz ferne, das Detail der, nun hoffentlich wieder beendeten Sachlage kennen zu lernen. Ich müsste ein sehr unerfahrener Mensch sein, wüsste ich jetzt in meinem Alter nicht, dass das unrichtige immer auf beiden Seiten geschieht u. dass es für den Dritten gar keinen Sinn hat, irgend das Detail kennen lernen zu wollen, das ihm in aller Totalität und Genauigkeit u. Tonfärbung gar nicht gegeben werden kann [...]" (5. VI. 1912). - Die weiteren Briefe über einen Wahltermin (Wien, 9. II. 1919) und einen Arzt-Kollegen (o. O. u. D.).

        Home Rule in a Nutshell

      London: The Daily Chronicle, 1912. London: The Daily Chronicle, 1912. Paperback. Near fine. This rare pamphlet publication represents itself as "A pocket book for speakers and electors, containing a brief exposition of the arguments for Home Rule, and answers to the objections raised." This third ("Revised and Enlarged") edition of 1912 is the first to contain an important 4-page introduction by Winston Churchill, lending his name, and influence to the cause. At the time of publication, Churchill served in the Cabinet as First Lord of the Admiralty. His four-page introduction is decisively favorable to the cause: "The facts and arguments collected in this brief epitome deserve the attention of fair-minded and patriotic Englishmen." Churchill frames the arguments in the pamphlet thus: "if they are favorable, what a sorry part will a man have played who out of carelessness, prejudice, or partisanship is guilty of obstructing a settlement earnestly desired by the Irish people, and politic and necessary in itself!" Churchill's family had supported unyielding British control over Ireland. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, won political victories through his support of the Unionists in Ulster. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule, spurred by the successful example of South Africa, where he had been so involved in his early career. On 8 February 1912 Winston spoke in Belfast in favor of Home Rule - the same Belfast where his father, Lord Randolph, famously opposed Home Rule, declaring in 1886 "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right." Winston's 1912 reply: "Why cannot this great settlement be made? We have made friends with our enemies; can we not make friends with our comrades too?" This was a major and controversial event, involving extraordinary precautions to protect Churchill's physical safety from hostile crowds. The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by the outbreak of World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free State Bill, which won passage in 1922. The rare pamphlet publication offered here is a small but substantive publication. It is string-bound in paper wraps, measures 5.25 x 4 inches, and is thick for a pamphlet, with 92 pages of small, dense print. Churchill's introduction is prominently advertised on the front cover. Condition is very good indeed for an item of this age and fragility. The paper wraps are lightly soiled, but complete with no loses or tears and tightly bound, with the original string binding intact. The contents are lightly age-toned, but otherwise clean and tight. The only marking found is an ink-stamped previous owner name to the blank inside front cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B10.1. (Woods mentions only the later, fourth edition, as Woods B5)

September 1912"), the last page (featuring Bissell carpet sweepers and Fireless Cookers) is lightly creased with short edge tears. (Various interior pages are dated Fall 1911 and April 1913.) The volume contains over 600 illustrated pages in color and black and white. Contents (apart from first and last pages) are in very good condition, with very occasional short marginal tears. An uncommon furniture catalogue from a Pacific Northwest manufacturer. Contents divided by seven labeled tabs, most of which have tape repairs; each section is individually numbered (one section lacks pagination.) The tabs identify a particular line of goods: "Chairs, Rockers, Upholstered Furniture"; "Porch Furniture, Go-Carts, Refrigerators"; "Ex. Tables, Buffets, China Closets"; "Standard Library Tables, Book Cases"; "Office and Hall Furniture, Mirrors"; "Lace Curtains, Rugs, Linoleum, Drapery Sundries."
