        4 (3 autogr. and 1 typed) letters signed.

      Mostly London, 1887 to 1915. - Small 4to and 8vo. Altogether 10¼ pp. To various addressees, on appointments and non-appointments: "It is with sincere and keen regret that I find myself unexpectedly disabled by the call of public duty from being present with you this evening. I had looked forward to the opportunity of hearing what Lord Haldane had to say on the subject of our National duty in these critical times, and of paying such tribute as I could to the signal service he has rendered, and the splendid example he has set, to the Empire. As I cannot be with you, I should be glad if you would convey my message to your meeting. Lord Haldane is the oldest personal and political friend that I have in the world. For the best part of 35 years we have been associated in close and unbroken intimacy. We have worked together, and fought side by side, through many vicissitudes of fortune, in the pursuit of what we have believed to be great and worthy causes, without (so far as I can recall) more than a passing shadow of difference in opinion, and always with the same ideals in view [.]" (from the letter of July 5, 1915; to Mr. Lincolnshire).

      Stepping Hill, 1915. A unique WW1 item, with c. 50 contributions from patients (all soldiers injured in the great war) at Stepping Hill Military Hospital principally dating to the period 1915-1917. From the entries it is clear that the book belonged to Nurse Hicks - and as the book is inscribed To Mary (Dec. 24/06) we can surmise that it is Nurse "Mary Hicks". The entries from the wounded soldiers vary from a few lines of doggerel to a several pages of poetry or prose, some quote poems and songs of the time and others are original compositions. Some include person accounts of the war and their injuries. A few are accompanied by illustrations generally of a cartoon nature (see images) Most of the entries are dated and signed with regimental details. Entries include "How I was Wounded at Loos", "The Battle of Hooge Flanders 9th of August 1915 by one that was Their (sic)" , "Salonika", "From one of the Boys Military Hospital Stepping Hill Hazel Grove" "Private A. H. Lange Welling B. Company New Zealand Expeditionary Force", "An Account of the landing at the Dardanelles " There are also a few entries which are pre 1914. A few loose pages, but generally in very good condition. A unique and somewhat poignant item.. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo.

        Clowns Courage / The Scarlet Fairy Book / journalist John Reed copy (Ten Days that Shook the World)

      Boston: Richard G. Badger, 1915 Boston: Richard G. Badger, 1915. First Edition. Signed and inscribed, with some tongue-in-cheek it would appear, by author Scarlet on the flyleaf to journalist/social activist John Reed, with whom he was apparently friends. Yes, that's the John Reed of the Warren Beatty film "REDS", and the one known more famously in his own time for his activist history of the October 1917 Russian Revolution, "Ten Days That Shook the World", and his avid participation in Max Eastman's controversial socialist publication, The Masses. Maybe his association with...Patrick Scarlet? a clue to what they hey this book is all about. 12mo, red cloth boards with gilt imprinting, 133 pp. Good plus; a fairly serious spine abrasion (see scan) and a variety of soil and wear spots. Firmly bound, however. A completely baffling little book. An enigma wrapped in a ...etc. Ostensibly a series of fairy tales, but it isn't, and that's so by its own tongue-in-check admonitions near the front. "Undergraduate Rubrics in part from the Magazine of the University of ***", and "Being the Scarlet Fairy Book for Wise Children, Sick People and the Half-Grown. A breviary of rising inflections for the Disillusioned, for the Compleat Sinner, a whimsey-missal and a petty psalter for the wee small voice", and "These Grotesques made in the fellowship of them Who put Gargoyles on their Churches inscribed to the companionable Shade of that Ancient who wearied of hearing Aristides called The Just". Okay... that said, "Patrick Scarlet" is clearly, to me, pseudonymic, but he was just as clearly, under some name, someone known to Reed. Unless this is some kind of code book, this is a series of (too much energy today?) iconoclastic and linguistically over-manic "Fairy Tales" by a literature major under the influence - of something. But there IS a smattering of local-scale social satire, and, since most entries involve more-or-less maidenly characters, this could be a) an account of collegiate conquests, b) an account of attempts at same, or c) tips on how to do that. Or not. You tell me. Oddly, the book is widely available as a new (well, 2008) download from a variety of sites, but no one seems to have a clue what it is or who Patrick Scarlet was. He did know John Reed. Since the book was published in Boston, and Reed attended Harvard, perhaps "Scarlet" was a classmate. But the 1915 date is a bit late for that. And the 1916 inscription date implies someone close to Reed at that time. Boardman Robinson ? Eugene O'Neill ? Or even, masquerading as a male friend, perhaps his love, Diane Keat... I mean, Louise Bryant ? Or, just a nobody, to us ? What the heck is this thing ? Does anyone recognize the handwriting of Patrick Scarlet ? Provenance provided to purchaser. L38n

        Navy Estimates in The Great War, Winston Churchill's 15 February 1915 speech in the House of Commons

      London: The Liberal Publication Department, printed by Strangeways & Sons, 1915. 1st Edition. Paperback. Fine. Here is an immaculate copy of the original, first printing pamphlet publication of Churchill's 15 February 1915 speech in the House of Commons - his final time introducing the annual Navy Budget as First Lord of the Admiralty. His first Navy Estimates speech of 1912 occurred on the eve of World War I and had laid out detailed policies for countering Germany in the growing naval arms race. This speech was well received and resulted in aggressive efforts under Churchill's Admiralty leadership to put Britain's Navy on a war footing. This 1915 Navy Estimates presentation occurs in the midst of war. Churchill reports: "On the declaration of war we were able to count upon a Fleet of sufficient superiority for all our needs, with a good margin for safety in vital matters, fully mobilised, placed in its war stations, supplied and equipped with every requirement." It would arguably be the war on land more than the war at sea that would prove Churchill's undoing. Later in the year, after being blamed for Gallipoli and the disastrous Dardanelles campaign, Churchill would resign from the Cabinet and rejoin the army to serve on the front in the trenches of France. The pamphlet offered here is 20 pages, bound in paper wraps, and measures 8 x 5.25 inches. Condition is truly fine - crisp, bright, clean, and entirely without wear. Original Churchill speech pamphlets of this era were frequently bound in annual compilations by the Liberal Publication Department. Per Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen (p.195), the number "8" hand stamped on the upper right corner of this pamphlet indicates that this pamphlet was disbound from the collected "Pamphlets and Leaflets for 1915-1918". This accounts for the wonderfully well-preserved condition. The speech pamphlet is protected in removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A45, Woods A24. Churchill's 15 Febuary 1915 speech was subsequently collected in The Conduct of the War by Sea (March 1915), Great Speeches of the War (later in 1915), War Speeches by British Ministers 1915-1916 (1917), and Winston S. Churchill: His Complete Speeches, Volume III, pp.2363-74.

        Some "Frightful" War Pictures

      London, Duckworth & Co., , 1915. Folio. 24 plates with caption-texts facing, numerous exquisitely-detailed silhouettes throughout the text, pictorial endpapers. Very good in the original red cloth-backed two colour printed boards, just a little soiled at the margins, in slightly rubbed and soiled dust jacket lacking just a couple of small pieces with no loss of image or text. A very nice copy. First Edition. Drawings, "cartoons" is too disrespectful a term for work of such precision, selected from The Sketch and the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, the Popular Edition of the following year rapidly went into six impressions. Robinson's "... line drawings had an unaccustomed bite, yet were mild compared with the excoriations of artists like Raemakers, Dyson, and E. J. Sullivan. A nearer comparison could be made with the work of Captain Bruce Bairnsfather, who strove for as much reality as he could get past the censor. Heath Robinson dealt in fantasy, yet the humour of both men, in the context of the times, was conspicuously good-natured." [ODNB]
