        The Ideal Giant. The Code of a Herdsman. Cantelman's Spring- Mate Privately Printed for the Little Review.

      London: The Little Review., 1917. First edition. Hardcover. Good. Octavo. Original cream cloth-backed white paper-covered card folder. 44pp stapled and then bound into folder with single cord. Folder illustrated with a Vorticist design by Lewis. Heavily marked, stained and darkened, edges rubbed, slight area of loss to paper cover to top edge of upper cover, a series of tiny prickmarks to upper cover, staples rusted. One of 200 copies (though Pound & Grover speculate that perhaps only fifty copies of the folder were made). With an ink presentation inscription from Lewis 'To dear Alic(k) Schepeler from P.Wyndham Lewis 1/12/17'. Alick Schepler, lover and friend of Lewis and other writers and artists notably W.B.Yeats, worked for the Illustrated London News. Addressed in letters by Lewis variously as 'Alic...' 'Alick' and 'Alec'. from 1914-1917. Alick Schepeler who worked as a secretary on the Illustrated London News , was interested in the arts and had been the model and mistress of Augustus John in 1906-7, she had been born in Russia in the same year as Lewis and grew up in Poland where her mother became a governess after the death of her father. The moody and highly-strung girl. who was obsessed by clothing, had luxurious brown hair, deep blue eyes and a rich slightly accented voice. She was unpretentious, passionate and (unlike most of her contemporaries) eager for love affairs. John who was fascinated by Alick for a time and did some very successful portraits of her, called her his "jeune fille mystérieuse et gaie". In mid 1915 Lewis wrote apologetically to Alick; "I cannot describe my resentment against a woman who made me drunk last Saturday afternoon....I was maudlin and very insolent." And in June he wrote a tantalizing letter, describing his fascination with her nightgown, and his temporary escape, which suggests she was also his mistress: "You caused me this morning to almost alter all my arrangements: for the pink nightgown on sunday (though I don't believe you've got one) captured my my sense, over-susceptible as you know. But I kept my head, and the result is that I regret to say that I shall be away on Sunday next. I am going to the country again....& could not, save by extreme dislocation of arrangements, get back in time for the pink nightdress. Prehaps when you can once more move, and our no longer wrapt round with the odour of disinfectants [She had been ill], I may yet hope tpo have a glimpse of the garment?". Lew wrote to Alick while he was at the front in 1917: and he continued to see her until 1930 when he apparently suspected her loyalty and quarrelled about malicious gossip that had been attributed to her. MEYER, JEREMY. The Enemy. A Biography of Wyndham Lewis. Routledge & Kegan Paul, London 1980. Vorticist period inscriptions by Lewis are of the greatest rarity.

      Paris, 1917. Small areas of paper loss in upper and lower margins from hanging, else very good. French broadside printing of President Wilson's address to Congress asking for a declaration of war against Germany. After years of insisting on neutrality, the sinking of the Lusitania and the infamous Zimmermann Note scandal persuaded Wilson that the time for action was at hand. On April 2, 1917, before a special joint session of Congress, Wilson asked for a declaration of war against Germany, and America entered World War I. Wilson's speech, known as "The world must be made safe for democracy" speech, would be a defining moment of his presidency, and America entering the war would, in turn, be the beginning of the end of the World War I. In the speech, printed here in French on a large sheet and no doubt hung in the streets of Paris, Wilson began with a harsh condemnation of German unrestricted submarine warfare and a review of the reasons neutrality was no longer possible. He then continued: "With a profound sense of the solemn and even tragical character of the step I am taking and of the grave responsibilities which it involves, but in unhesitating obedience to what I deem my constitutional duty, I advise that the Congress declare the recent course of the Imperial German government to be in fact nothing less than war against the government and people of the United States; that it formally accept the status of belligerent which has thus been thrust upon it; and that it take immediate steps, not only to put the country in a more thorough state of defense but also to exert all its power and employ all its resources to bring the government of the German Empire to terms and end the war.... "The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be satisfied when those rights have been made as secure as the faith and the freedom of nations can make them.... "It is a distressing and oppressive duty, gentlemen of the Congress, which I have performed in thus addressing you. There are, it may be, many months of fiery trial and sacrifice ahead of us. It is a fearful thing to lead this great peaceful people into war, into the most terrible and disastrous of all wars, civilization itself seeming to be in the balance. But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried nearest our hearts for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments, for the rights and liberties of small nations, for a universal dominion of right by such a concert of free peoples as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world itself at last free. To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is privileged to spend her blood and her might for the principles that gave her birth and happiness and the peace which she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other." A remarkable relic of the war to end all wars.

        Little Brother & Little Sister and Other Tales yy the Brothers Grimm

      London: Constable & Co., Ltd., 1917. - First Trade Edition[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. [GRIMM, Jakob and Wilhelm]. Little Brother & Little Sister And Other Tales by the Brothers Grimm. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co., 1917. First trade edition. Octavo (9 15/16 x 7 1/2 inches; 253 x 190 mm.). xi, [1], 250, [1], [1, blank] pp. Twelve mounted color plates, including frontispiece, with captions on mounts. Forty-three black and white drawings. Pictorial end-papers. Publisher's ribbed green cloth, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, spine decoratively lettered in gilt, pictorial end-papers. Slight discoloration on free end-papers (from paste-downs). Upper cover corners a little bumped, small armorial bookplate on verso of front free end-paper, neat ink inscription dated 1917 on half-title. A very good copy." it was during these years that he illustrated a new Brothers Grimm title, Little Brother and Little Sister which is in effect one of his crowning achievements. In these twelve colour plates we find the most astonishing versatility of style, and an exquisite pitch of execution. The style ranges from the delicate to the virtual burlesque caricature. On the one hand is an example of pre-Raphaelite, infinitely tender portrayals of womanhood, such as 'The True Sweetheart', or the delicate realism of Maid Maleen and her waiting woman escaping from the terrible tower of her father. Yet within the same book we find the classic Rackhamerie of the gnome with his beard caught in the cleft of the semi-anthropomorphized tree, appealing to Rose-red and Snow-white for help and the Hassell-like custard-pie of the three soldiers and the long nose. This is one of the few books illustrated by Rackham from which it would be possible to select any single-colour picture in order to demonstrate Rackham's art at its finest." (Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp. 116-117).Latimore and Haskell p. 47. Riall p. 129. Gettings p. 178. [Attributes: First Edition]

Minor fraying at head and tail of spine.Corners lightly bumped. Very Good condition.Lizzie Borden is well known from this most familiar rhyme recited at the time of her 1892 murder trial (and afterwards after she was acquitted): ""Lizzie Borden took an axe / And gave her mother forty whacks. / When she saw what she had done, / She gave her father forty-one.""It is interesting to note that ""axe"" and ""murder"" are listed in this dictionary.To escape the pressures of Fall River, Massachusetts, Lizzie Borden often would take off for Washington, D.C. ""Things were getting bad, so I've run away,"" she wrote to friends. Michael Martins, Curator of the Fall River Historical Society, said that in Washington ""she could live a life without being publicly scrutinized. She loved theater, loved traveling, loved shopping."" She evidently bought this book on one of her jaunts to Washington, D.C.Anything signed by Lizzie Borden is extremely rare. In 2003, a signed copy of a book owned by her sold for $6000. Only three ALsS signed by her have sold at auction in the last 25 years, the latest bringing over $8000. "

Oblong 4to. 526 pp. Frontispiece trademark illustration and numerous other illustrations from line drawings and photographs. Padgitt Brothers Company was established in 1869 and incorporated in 1900; the company's success "in supplying the needs of the saddlery trade of the Southwest [gave them] first-hand knowledge of materials and design that [were] recognized as standard wherever good goods are sold." Their catalogues were "a veritable encyclopedia of saddlery facts, classified for your convenience … there is no reason why this book should not prove a 'silent partner' in the success of every dealer who will utilize its pages freely." The profusely illustrated catalogue, with pricing information, is organized into sections for saddles and varieties of tack down to spurs, buckles, hobbles, canvas wagon covers, buggy tops, blankets, and feedbags.

        OUR HAWAII

      New York, 1917. Original cloth, rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Titlepage defective. Good. Tipped in are eighteen original photographs of Charmian. A presentation copy inscribed by Charmian: "In sweet recollection of wonderful friendship between Vladimir and Charodeyka - you and me." This book describes the life of Jack London and his wife, Charmian, in Hawaii from 1907 to 1915. A fine association copy, enhanced by a number of original photographs of Charmian, including a portrait inscribed: "To Sam From Charmian." On page 278 there is a lovely reference to Russian-born American Vladimir and his wife, describing how he once virtually singled-handedly saved the entire crew of the barquentine Klikitat off Maui. He adopted the name of his ship, "Sam Johnson," as Americans could not cope with his Russian name, and his wife became "Pearl." Of the few presentation copies of this book to appear at auction, this copy has by far the most touching inscription, and no others are enhanced by so many original photographs. The photographs range from tomboyish outdoor snapshots of Charmian to more lady-like studio portraits.
