        His Last Bow. A Reminiscence of Sherlock Holmes

      London, George Bell. 1917, 1917. Short mysteries. First Colonial Edition. 8vo. Publisher's light red cloth titled and decorated in gilt and blind to spine and front board. Lightly rubbed and bumped to extremities, strong and bright. In a clean, sharp dustwrapper depicting the man himself (clutching a chicken, but a chap's private life is his own, what?), lightly sunned to front panel, with some edgewear, marginal chipping and two small pieces of loss to the spine ends, compensated for by the fact that it is fabulously scarce in any form of wrapper let alone one strong and bright enough to rush out and do battle with the enemies of the Empire in its own right. Internally clean with some light occasional spotting. Neat ownership to front flyleaf. A most impressive copy of a scarce item. 'His Last Bow' marked the end of Holmes' career, though not the end of his adventures... The title story covers the great detective's war service, and 'The Bruce-Partington Plans' finds Doyle moving into the espionage genre. Green & Gibson [A40]. HUBIN; Crime Fiction IV.

        [Original Scrapbook and Photograph Album an Army Air Corp Pilot]

      np [various], [ca. 1917-1935]. Very good +. Oblong folio album. String-bound alligator pattern embossed leather covers. 42 leaves with 119 black and white photographs and dozens of documents and other scrap elements mounted both recto and verso. Additional supporting materials laid-in. Leather rubbed with some minor starting at hinges. Contents well preserved. Generally very good or better. A handsome album compiled by Colonel Robert Theodore Cronau (1896-1996) during his career in the Army Air Corps. Cronau was commissioned with a Class A designation in May of 1917 and quickly earned a reputation as one of the most skilled pilots in the newly established Army Air Service. Internal clippings capture thrilling aerial exploits from his earliest service days. The headline of a 1917 article from Americus, GA about a flying demonstration involving Cronau reads: "Daring Aviators Thrill Throng." A Tampa Morning Tribune piece called his work in the National Air Tournament of 1921, " of the most remarkable pieces of work in army air service records." As a First Lieutenant he completed Air Service Photographic School in 1922, joining the 22nd Photo Section, capturing early aerial photographs and developing an aptitude with a camera clearly on display here. Cronau would serve as a Director of Air Corps Flying Training trough the 1930's, stationed at Kelly Field, TX and Langley Field, VA, and as Commanding Officer of the XXVI Fighter Command in the Canal Zone into the 1940s and the war. A stunning, rich document covering the dawn of U.S. military air service into the WWII era, replete with compelling aviation photographs and early Air Service and Air Corps ephemera.

Inscribed by Paulhan, "pour Wladimir Weidle avec amitié, Jean Paulhan," and with a further quote from Marivaux. A rare and elegantly realized book. 1912. Jean Paulhan enseigne le malgache à l'École des Langues orientales. Lorsque la guerre éclate, il est affecté comme sergent au 9e Zouaves. On connaît de lui (sous le boléro à soutaches) une photographie assez belle. Le front haut, le regard un peu rêveur ou mélancolique, le menton, par contraste, bien dessiné et presque dur, tout y indique une vive attention à l'univers intérieur, mais aussi la faculté de voir et d'agir. Blessé le 25 décembre 1914 au bois de Saint-Mard, Jean Paulhan met à profit des loisirs forcés. Ce sera un livre bref, l'un des plus vrais qui soient sur un sujet prêtant aux effusions, LE GUERRIER APPLIQUÉ. Le titre, prétendait Valéry, est admirable : il dit tout. Publié en 1917 chez Sansot, il reparaîtra en 1930 chez Gallimard. De fort bons esprits le mettent au rang des chefs-d'oeuvre. [atelierpdf].

As such, the only copies traced are in Cambridge, who house the Francis Meynell collection, the London School of Economics and Oxford. Meynell republished the work a year later in an edition of 100 copies.

        Historically Important Archive, Compiled by E. Rich and Containing Confidential Printed Reports, Eighteen Maps and Plans, as Well as Original Documents Related to the Survey of Potential Routes for a Motor Road between Bandar Abbas and Kerman in Southern Persia; the Survey was Carried out by Rich as a Part of the Persian Campaign during the First World War; the title on the front board reads:] Report and Estimates of Cost of Motor Roads in South East Persia between Bandar Abbas and Kerman by Major Rich, R.E., 1917. General Staff, India. Vol. I.

      1917 - Simla-Delhi, 1917-1918. Folio. Custom made hardcover binding with the first publisher's wrapper of the original report pasted to the front board. With a large folding linen backed map of Persia in the pocket at rear. Several leaves slightly age toned, but overall a very good custom made copy. Special custom bound collection of original reports and documents on the survey of the potential motor road construction between Bandar Abbas and Kerman in Southern Persia, carried out by E.T. Rich on the special orders of the Chief of General Staff in India. As a part of military operations of the WW1 Bandar Abbas was occupied by British forces under command of Sir Percy Sykes in March 1916, and the survey was apparently undertaken in order to establish additional supply routes to the war's Persian front. Rich was ordered "to report as soon as possible on the best route for a road to take motor lorry traffic from Bandar Abbas to Kerman and to frame estimates from the same and proposals as to the best way of carrying out the work." The survey was done in December 1916-June 1917, and a year later Rich was promoted a Companion of the Order of the Indian Empire (C.I.E.) for his work. Nevertheless, the road hasn't been constructed, probably because of the cardinal changes on the Persian front after the collapse of the Russian front line as a result of the revolution in February 1917. The volume contains: confidential reports by Rich; printed "Working notes" on the survey; maps and plans of Bandar Abbas, Kerman, and the area in between; telegrams sent to him from the Chief of General Staff (Delhi & Simla), Surveyor General's Office in Calcutta, British Consul in Bandar Abbas; tables with distances and estimates of construction, printed views of the area et al. The volume consists of three main parts: 1) Confidential. Survey by Major E.T. Rich, R.E., of routes between Bandar-Abbas and Kerman. General Staff, India. Simla: Government Branch Press, 1917. 9, 13, [1], 7, 16 = 46 pp. With six maps and plans (two folding), a proof plate with two photo views, and thirteen leaves of original manuscript, typewritten and printed telegrams related to the report. Both original publisher's wrappers bound in. 2) Confidential. Report by Major E.T. Rich, R.E., on the Construction of Motor Roads in South Persia between Bandar Abbas and Kerman. 1917. General Staff, India. Vol. I. Delhi: Superintendent Government Printing, India, 1918. [2], iv, 38 pp. With 12 leaves of plates (including one proof plate), and eight maps and plans (three folding). Occasional red ink notes by Rich in text and on the maps/plans; both original publisher's wrappers bound in. 3) Confidential. Report by Major E.T. Rich, R.E., on the Construction of Motor Roads in South Persia between Bandar Abbas and Kerman. 1917. General Staff, India. Vol. II. Delhi: Superintendent Government Printing, India, 1918. Pp. 39-54. With three folding maps. Occasional red ink notes by Rich in text and on the maps/plans; both original publisher's wrappers bound in. The collection is supplemented with Rich's copy of a typewritten dispatch from the British Vice-Consul in Bandar Abbas to the Chief of Roodbar (South Persia) Zarghan-us-Saltaneh, dated "Bandar Abbas, 2nd December 1916". In the dispatch the consul asks for the assistance to Rich who is going to visit the area under the chief's control during the course of his road survey. The copy is signed by the consul and has his manuscript note "Original sent by special messenger direct to Zarghan-us-Saltaneh." There are also two autograph signed letters by Rich, addressed to his aunt in London and written while on field service in Southern Persia. The letters are dated 10th and 25th of December 1916, housed in the original envelope with a postal stamp of "Bandar Abbas," and contain some interesting notes about Rich's work and his observations on the native life.

        The Greenleaf Portfolio

      Flansham: The Greenleaf Press, 1917. (9)ff. Small quarto. A portfolio of eight wood engravings in black and white, with the title page printed in copper ink. The publication and illustrations were done by Stuart, Robin, and John Guthrie, the sons of James Guthrie of the Pear Tree Press. The Greenleaf Press was established in 1915 by Guthrie for his sons while they were still children. Although it is an amateur publication, it is evidence that the passion for the art of printing was shared by the whole Guthrie family. In blue wrappers with printed paper label on upper cover; one engraving is tipped in, and the last two are out of order. This extremely rare item is in near fine condition, with wrappers sunned, label foxed, and one corner bumped. This is the sole published issue of The Portfolio, and only one other copy is known.

Das Vorwort zu dem Katalog, der damals ein außerordentliches Aufsehen erregte, begann mit den Worten: "Endlich bin ich in der Lage, mir einen lang gehegten Wunsch zu erfüllen: mich nunmehr ausschließlcih mit Dingen der Kunst zu beschäftigen, dazu soll mir meine Kunsthandlung dienen." Dem in der Mitte seines Lebens stehenden Kaufmann, der vorher schon jahrelang als sehr temperamentvoller Käufer in der Kunstwelt auffiel, war das Glück nicht hold. Kaum daß er dem verhaßt Kontor entflohen ist und das Ziel seiner Wünsche erreicht hat, bricht der Krieg aus. Er wie sein Mitarbeiter verlassen, dem Rufe des Vaterlandes gehorchend, in den ersten Tagen des August ihre Galerie. Der Mitarbeiter fällt, und Flechtheim, seit August 1914 im Felde stehend, muß endlich einsehen, daß es nicht möglich ist, ein so neues Unternehmen durch einen Fremden zu halten. So ist er gezwungen, seine Galerie aufzugeben und die Bestände seines Hauses versteigern zu lassen." Zitat aus der Vorrede von P. C. [Paul Cassirer].

        Autograph Letter, signed ("J.B. Moore"), to John W. Williams, regarding the extraordinary growth of Executive Power in America

      New York, 1917. 8 pp., on two folded sheets of personal letterhead. 12mo. Fine, in a maroon custom cloth folder. "The lines of the Constitution have been almost wholly abandoned" A fine letter from this lawyer, scholar, diplomat, professor, and jurist, who became the first American to serve as a judge on the Permanent Court of International Justice at the Hague. He was "... the most prominent American authority on international law during the first half of the twentieth century. His writings on international law remain important contributions to the literature of that field. He was a significant participant in the foreign policy decisions of the McKinley and Roosevelt administrations. When his service with Woodrow Wilson proved unrewarding, Moore became an effective critic of the growth of presidential power in foreign affairs." (ANB) In this letter, Moore writes: "There can be no doubt that there has taken place during the past fifty-six years an enormous development of Executive Power. The lines of the Constitution have been almost wholly abandoned [underscored] ... between the days of Jackson and the Civil War there was no enhancement of the power of the Executive. The enhancement during the Civil War was due to circumstances, not to the personal disposition of the incumbent. Mr. [Theodore] Roosevelt while President practiced and later formulated the conception now prevalent, with the apparent approval of what old Coxe called "the Popular", that the President, as the choice of the whole people, is their chosen leader [underscored] responsible primarily too them; and, with the acquiescence of the Congress, this become the fact, primary responsibility being transmitted into final responsibility ... Naturally, in the course of time, the Senate must alter its rules so as to cease to deliberate when called upon by the Executive, as the Tribune of the people [underscored], for certain action, it having come to pass that the function of Congress as a whole has become like that of the old Parlement of Paris - the mere registering of some external will ...".

        The Newlyweds and their Baby's Comic Pictures for Painting and Crayoning

      Akron/New York/Chicago: The Saalfield Publishing Co.. Very Good+. (c.1917, 1907). Stiff wrappers. NOISBN . [moderate edgewear to covers, internally Fine except for the expected and inevitable age-toning to the pages]. (cartoon strips and panels) A remarkably well-preserved example of this rare vintage coloring book (OCLC reports only four library holdings), containing mostly undated reprints of George McManus's newspaper comic strip, "The Newlyweds," generally considered the first American "family" strip. Created by the then 20-year-old McManus for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World in 1904, the strip ran for twelve years, at various times as both a daily and Sunday feature; when McManus left the World for the New York American (a Hearst paper), he began a new strip called "Their Only Child" ("a perfect clone," in the words of one historian), while "The Newlyweds" continued in the World, drawn by Albert George Carmichael. Dating the strips in the book would be a major research task, not helped by the mishmash of dates provided: the 1917 date is on the front cover; the title page reads: "Copyrighted 1907 by the Press Publishing Co."; and several of the individual color strips bear a 1916 copyright date, also credited to the "Press Publishing Co. (N.Y. World)." All appear to all be Sunday strips, although some are in B&W (for "coloring-in" purposes, I suppose) and others in color, and despite McManus's sole by-line on the title page, Carmichael's work is also well-represented. (On quite a few, either McManus's or Carmichael's signature is visible; generally speaking, the color versions appear to be by Carmichael and the B&W ones by McManus.) To my eyes, the 1917 publication date signals the publishers' attempt to wring a few more drops of revenue out of a feature that had ended the previous year; the seemingly anomalous 1907 copyright date would seem related to the "birth date" of baby Snookums (yes, that was his name), who was introduced into the strip in that year. [Either that or it's just a "holdover" from an earlier book incarnation, "The Newlyweds and Their Baby," published the same year by the New York World, but not to be confused with the present volume.] But relax: it's not so much a collection (let alone a chronicle) as it is a sampler of "The Newlyweds," and as such is utterly charming. McManus's most successful and best-remembered strip, "Bringing Up Father" (aka "Jiggs & Maggie"), debuted in 1913 and had an amazing 87-year run -- outliving its creator by 46 years! .

        La Passion de Notre Frère le Poilu

      Paris: Léon Pichon,, 1917. Boix originaux de Hermann-Paul. Quarto (325 × 245 mm). Contemporary black morocco by René Kieffer, gilt stamp to front doublure, ticket verso of the front free endpaper, five bands, title gilt direct to spine, black morocco doublures with single fillet gilt panel, black endpapers marbled in silver and gold, the outward sides stitched with a fine silk reticulation supporting narrowly-sewn vertical golden threads, original wraps bound in, additional vivid "tricolor" marbled sheets after the wraps, and dividing the sections, lavender silk page-marker, housed in a simple marbled card, leather-entry slip-case. 17 woodcut borders to the text by Hermann-Paul, and a vignette to the upper wrap; together with two complete suites of the cuts without letters. The slip-case a little rubbed, minor paint-transfer from the red, white and blue sheets to those facing, but overall a superb copy. First published in 1916 in the Echo de Paris, La Passion … won the that year's Prix Jean Revel presented by the Société des Gens-de-Lettres for the "meilleur ouvrage regionaliste". This copy from a special edition of 50 copies only: 30, 1-30, for the author and his friends, and 20, I-XX, with a suite of plates "sur chine" for the bibliophilic society "Les XX"; this a unique, exemplary copy with printed presentation to the printer and publisher Léon Pichon, signed by the author and artist, and with an original ink and brush drawing by Hermann-Paul, signed in pencil, bound in as the frontispiece. Born in Saumur, Leclerc was trained for the law, but in his time was a journalist, author, a cabaret singer and comedian. Probably best remembered as the great literary champion of the Angevin dialect, the author of numerous books on the region, and creator of the "rimiaux"a rhymed, dialect poem or tale of which the present work is an example. Leclerc tells the story of an Angevin poilu who is killed in action and finds himself at the Heavenly Gates having to present his credentials for entry to an assembly of saints in the everyday language of Anjou. The pleasingly "mediaeval" woodcuts were by Hermann-Paul who worked extensively as an illustrator in the newspapers and satirical magazines of the period - L'Assiete au Beurre, La Rire, Gil-Blas, Le Figaro - but also exhibited his "intimiste" paintings and lithographs alongside such Vuillard, Matisse and Toulouse-Lautrec. The recipient of this copy, the printer of the work, was described by The Studio in a review of his 1924 exhibition at the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp as " the Parisian master-printer and engraver, whose fine editions have gained a well-deserved fame", remarking that this was the "first time that any artist in book-production not belonging to the town of Antwerp has been a guest in the great house where, from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century, the Plantin-Moretus dynasty carried on uninterruptedly its monumental work; and a signal honour is thereby conferred on contemporary French book-production and on M.Pichon" (Studio, LXXXIX, 1925, p.139). A matchless copy of this highly attractive First World War satire, bound in a superbly restrained, almost Jansenist style, by the binder who would go on to become one of the leading exponents of the Art Deco style in binding.

        "Kaiser Karl Huldigungs-Marsch". Musikmanuskript mit eigenh. U.

      Wien, 3. X. 1917.. Titel und 3½ SS. auf 3 Bll. Folio.. Etwas angestaubt und mit stärkeren Randläsuren. - Anfangs als Violinist und Cellist u. a. am Theater a. d. Wien, am Carltheater und am Josefstädtertheater tätig, kam Udel 1871 zum "Komischen Quartett" des Wiener Männergesangsvereins. "Dieses komische, nicht nur in Wien, auch im Auslande bekannte und beliebte Quartett ist nach einem Personenwechsel der übrigen drei Stimmen am 3. März 1880 zum ersten Male als 'Quartett Udel' vor das Publicum" getreten (Eisenberg, Das geistige Wien, zit. n. DBA I 1292, 120) und fand in Folge große Anerkennung, wurde gar "wiederholt in allerh[öchste] Kreise gezogen" (ebd.). Udel selbst war seit 1877 Professor am Wiener Konservatorium, wo er u.a. Eduard Rose und Franz Schmidt im Violoncellospiel unterrichtete. Vgl. MGG XI, 906 (Rose) und 1853 (Schmidt). Seine Stellung im Hofopernorchester hatte Udel später eines Handleidens wegen aufgeben müssen, und 1904 war er erblindet.
