Other letters relating Diallo including its demobilization very late (August 1920), show links intense friendships that have developed between the metropolitan and the rifleman during the war. Around this correspondence, the other riflemen and friends Diallo tells us the tragic death less than a month after his discharge young Senegalese per. Rare written testimony of sharpshooters on their involvement in the war which they were major players.

Une partie de cette correspondance est composée de lettres du sergent interprète Kaminado Diallo dont un étonnant lexique français-bambara à l'usage de son supérieur et ami Marcel Henrion. Les autres lettres de Diallo relatant notamment sa démobilisation très tardive (août 1920), témoignent des liens d'amitiés intenses qui se sont noués entre le métropolitain et le tirailleur pendant la guerre. Autour de cette correspondance, celle d'autres tirailleurs et d'amis de Diallo nous apprennent la mort tragique moins d'un mois après sa démobilisation du jeune interprète sénégalais. Rare témoignage écrit de tirailleurs sur leur engagement dans cette guerre dont ils furent des acteurs majeurs. Dès 1914, leur courage marque les esprits des combattants européens, en 1916, ils participent largement à la reprise du fort de Douamont et en 1917, près de 7 000 d'entre eux sont tués dans la bataille du Chemin des Dames. La ville de Reims leur élèvera un monument pour leur contribution à la défense de la ville. Sur les 200 000 engagés « sénégalais », 30 000 moururent au champ d'honneur. Pourtant ce lourd tribut n'entamera pas la très forte camaraderie qui naît entre les combattants occidentaux et africains au sein des « régiments mixtes d'infanterie coloniale ». Transcendant les différences culturelles et ethniques, ces lettres et ce lexique témoignent de la commune histoire d'hommes de tous horizons pris dans la tourmente absurde de cette guerre des Nations. Malgré l'importance de leur participation à la guerre et à la victoire, très peu de témoignages écrits des tirailleurs sénégalais sont parvenus jusqu'à nous.  Émouvants documents rédigés pas ceux que Senghor a surnommé les « Dogues noirs de l'Empire ». L'ensemble est présenté sous chemise et étui en demi maroquin noir signé Goy & Vilaine, dos lisse, titre en long, plats de papier africanisant.

        7 Photos of the Russian Revolution in Tomsk

      ca. 1917, Russia - Collection of 7 original, vintage photographs. All labelled in ink in Hungarian "Tomszk", one "Tomszk, forradalom". (Tomsk, Revolution). In various sizes (ca. 80 × 120 mm.). The Russian Revolution in 1917 (8 March - 8 November) overthrew the Tsarist autocracy and led to the establishment of the Soviet state. One of the strongest Bolshevik organization outside of Moscow was in Tomsk. During the Revolution there were massive demonstrations organized by the Bolsheviks for the Soviet power. The center of these demonstrations and riots were at the University's building (now: Tomsk State University) and at the now called Lenin Square. Two photos of the collection are showing these places. The photographer remained unknown, but most likely he was a Hungarian prisoners of war, as the 40 percent of the 600,000 Hungarian POW were held at this area (Tomsk, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk). The Hungarian POWs in Tomsk were the most active pro-Bolshevik group among them and many of the leaders of the Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919 were imprisoned here, among others Béla Kun and Ferenc Münnich. The photographs are showing revolutionary gatherings, one is in front of the University, most of the people are in uniform, someone holds a placard with the word "?????" (soil) written on it. Other photos were made on the streets of Tomsk, picturing the Cathedral of the Epiphany at the now called Lenin Square, showing traditional wooden houses of the peasants, and the river port. Collection of 7 original, vintage photographs. All labelled in ink in Hungarian "Tomszk", one "Tomszk, forradalom". (Tomsk, Revolution)

        The Broadway Anthology [Signed by Kingsley; Association Copy -- copy of Louis V. DeFoe]

      Duffield & Company, 1917, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionA Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original paper-covered boards (chipping to the upper spine, some rubbing to the spine label, minor marking to the front board label, tiny rubs to the board corners, scattered foxing, primarily to the pastedowns and free endpapers), INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY WALTER J. KINGSLEY TO LOUIS V. DEFOE on the front free endpaper with Defoe's bookplate to the front pastedown; a remarkable anthology of Poetry by four monumental individuals who through their work had a substantial effect on society. Edward L. Bernays, author of the influential book "Propaganda" (Liveright, 1928), was a nephew of Sigmund Freud -- being the son of Freud's sister Anna and of Ely Bernays -- himself the brother of Freud's wife Martha. In his Obituary, the New York Times described Bernays as "the Father of Public Relations" and, in noting his influence on Society stated that he was "an early leader in the public relations field who devised or developed many techniques for influencing public opinion...was instrumental in the formation of opinion-shaping methods that were used on behalf of many business and industrial enterprises, welfare and civic groups, and governments at home and abroad...[and] helped shape public relations by favoring the use of endorsements from opinion leaders, celebrities, doctors and other "experts" to strengthen the arguments his clients wanted to make." Bernays utilized ideas of crowd psychology propounded by Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter, along with his uncle Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytical ideas, to manipulate public opinion, a practice he viewed as necessary in order to counteract what he saw as irrational human behavior. Bernays, in short, founded the modern practice of Public Relations. Life Magazine named him one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century. On the debit side, Bernays's ideas were used to overthrow Jacobo Arbenz Guzman the democratically elected President of Guatemala, and Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter described Bernays [and Ivy Lee] as "professional poisoners of the public mind, exploiters of foolishness, fanaticism and self-interest". Screenwriter and music composer Samuel Hoffenstein wrote scripts for many notable movies, including Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931), The Miracle Man (1932), Phantom of the Opera (1943), The Wizard of Oz (1939), Tales of Manhattan (1942), Flesh and Fantasy (1943), and Laura (1944). Hoffenstein also was acclaimed for his Poetry. Walter J. Kingsley was one of the most notable Press Agents of the early 20th Century, and Murdoch Pemberton, newspaper reporter, Broadway publicist, playwright, and poet, became the New Yorker's first art critic and co-hosted the luncheon that launched the Algonquin Round Table. As noted above, this copy boasts a fine Association, being inscribed by co-author Walter Kingsley to Louis V. DeFoe, noted drama critic and editor of David Belasco's "The Theatre Through Its Stage Door". Copies of the book are quite scarce to the market, signed copies are scarcer still, and signed copies having a notable Association are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Very Good copy of this SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY LEADING PRESS AGENT WALTER J. KINGSLEY TO NOTED DRAMA CRITIC LOUIS V. DEFOE, BEING ALSO THE DEBUT BOOK OF EDWARD L. BERNAYS, ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL MEN OF THE MODERN ERA.

Couverture avec manque du coin inferieur sur premier plat, protegee avec jaquette protective en plastique transparente. Interieur tres propre. Exemplaire numerote : 210 sur un tirage de 470 sur papier bouffant. Dedicace et inscription de l'auteur sur page de faux titre " Nous ne parvenons jamais A faire entre les etats extremes de la vie autant de difference que nous voudrions. Pour Wladimir Weidle avec amitie. Jean Paulhan". / First edition of this early work, a novel of the Great War, by the eminence grise of 20th Century French letters. One of 470 hand-numbered copies on papier bouffant, with a fine unattributed art nouveau woodcut vignette at the close of the text which is repeated on the rear cover. Lower forecorner lacking from front wrap, else a very good copy in publisher's blue printed wrappers. Inscribed by Paulhan, "pour Wladimir Weidle avec amitie, Jean Paulhan," and with a further quote from Marivaux. A rare and elegantly realized book.. 1912. Jean Paulhan enseigne le malgache a l'Ecole des Langues orientales. Lorsque la guerre eclate, il est affecte comme sergent au 9e Zouaves. On connait de lui (sous le bolero a soutaches) une photographie assez belle. Le front haut, le regard un peu reveur ou melancolique, le menton, par contraste, bien dessine et presque dur, tout y indique une vive attention a l'univers interieur, mais aussi la faculte de voir et d'agir. Blesse le 25 decembre 1914 au bois de Saint-Mard, Jean Paulhan met a profit des loisirs forces. Ce sera un livre bref, l'un des plus vrais qui soient sur un sujet pretant aux effusions, LE GUERRIER APPLIQUE. Le titre, pretendait Valery, est admirable : il dit tout. Publie en 1917 chez Sansot, il reparaitra en 1930 chez Gallimard. De fort bons esprits le mettent au rang des chefs-d'oeuvre. [atelierpdf].

      - Otto Flath wuchs als eines von sieben Kindern in Staritzke in einfachen Verhältnissen auf. Mit dem Ausbruch des ersten Weltkrieges wurde die Situation für die deutsche Familie schwierig, der Vater wurde im Jahr 1917 nach Sibirien verbannt. Erst als er seine Freiheit wieder erlangt hatte, kam die Familie 1919 nach Kiel, wo der damals 13-jährige erstmals eine Schule besuchte. Im Anschluß daran nahm er an der Holzbildhauerklasse der Kunst- und Gewerbeschule Kiel teil. 1932 schloß sich Otto Flath der Künstlergemeinschaft um das Ehepaar Ellen und Willy Burmester an und zog 1935 nach Bad Segeberg, wo ihm 1971 die Ehrenbürgerschaft verliehen wurde. An seinem 75. Geburtstag erhielt er für sein Schaffen das Bundesverdienstkreuz am Bande.

Minimal rubbing to extremities, neat ink inscription "Xmas 1917" on front free end-paper, some very light foxing mainly on tissue-guards. A near fine copy."The Romance of King Arthur (1917) was another wartime book, commissioned, like the Allies' Fairy Book, to reflect - and cash in upon - the nations' mood of patriotism,and martial endevour. In preparing for the commission, Rackham turned to his own copy of Beardsley's Morte D'Arthur and, following the pattern of the Beardsley version, drew square and rectangular chapter heardings to be set at irregular intervals up and down the page. As in Beardsley, these have a stark black and white appearance, though Rackham cannot resist the occasional wryly humorous touch such as a barking dog or a jester's head. The closest Rackham comes to Beardsley, however, is in his illustration of Sangreal, a flaming lidded chalice carried by an attenuated golden-haired white-robed maiden. This homage to Aubrey is based closely on Beardsley's own angel in The Achieving of the Sangreal, the frontispiece to Volume Two of Morte D'Arthur."(James Hamilton. Arthur Rackham. A Biography. pp.111-112).Latimore and Haskell, p. 47. Riall, p. 130.

        Seven months after the United States entered World War I, Capt. George S. Patton, Jr., writes his father about the defeat of Italy at Caporetto: "This attack on the Italians seems to jolt hell out of our hopes for a short settlement ? Italy is a fine place for a winter campaign ? I hope to get made a major and get away from Hq as my job while quite comfortable leads no where ?" - three weeks later, Patton was assigned to establish the AEF Light Tank School

To his father. Fine condition.In full, ""Dear Papa: This attack on the Italians seems to jolt hell out of our hopes for a short settlement for if it works it will encourage the Bosh ... Besides Italy is a fine place for a winter campaign and we may be in a quite different state by spring. I am feeling much better and expect to be out of the hospital in a few more days. How are your affairs getting on can you sell any land or is every one buying bonds? ""There is very little news here since I have been sick but I hope to get made a major and get away from Hq as my job while quite comfortable leads no where I sent you a very good pipe about a month ago did you ever get it they are very fashionable and yours is the latest model so it ought to be nice. I have not smoked for the last two weeks and think I will end it out for the war any way it slows me down a little at least the way I smoke give my love to all Your devoted son George S Patton Jr.""In the Battle of Caporetto on October 24, 1917, German and Austro-Hungarian forces broke through the Italian line they had been fighting since 1914, surprising the Italian forces. The scale of the Italian defeat at Caporetto led to both a change in government in Italy and the dismissal of the Italian Chief of Staff.Earlier in October, Capt. George S. Patton, Jr. was assigned to AEF headquarters in Chaumont, France, as post adjutant and commander of the headquarters company. Patton began to take an interest in tanks. While in a hospital for jaundice, Patton met Colonel Fox Conner who encouraged him to work with tanks. Within days of writing this letter to his father, he applied to Gen Pershing for a transfer to tanks and on November 17, 1917, Capt. Patton was assigned to establish the AEF Light Tank School. In December, he was given the task to start an American Expeditionary Force (AEF) Light Tank School at Langres, France. Capt. was promoted to major on January 26, 1918."

        Portrait photograph signed ("Allenby F.M.").

      N.p.o.d.. 1 p. 4to.. A handsome photograph by London's H. Walter Barnett of the highly decorated and dignified looking field marshal in uniform, his folded hands resting on his sword. - Allenby's expert command of the Third Army in France during World War I was the prelude to even greater success in Palestine, then under British rule. In late spring 1917, Allenby was made commander of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force, and by autumn he had captured Beersheba and Gaza from the Turks. On December 11, two days after its surrender, a triumphant Allenby entered through Jerusalem's gates. In April 1918, a lack of reinforcements prompted Allenby to suspend his offensive against the Ottoman forces, which he resumed in August. The following month, he conquered the Turks at the Battle of Megiddo, "the last great campaign of cavalry employed in strategic mass in the annals of war, and one of the most notable," (DNB). That victory was quickly followed by the capture of Damascus, Homs and Aleppo, with Turkey surrendering on October 30, 1918. - In near mint condition, with the slightly damaged tissue guard still attached.

        The Tribute and Circe

      Cleveland, Ohio: The Clerk's Press,, 1917. Small square octavo, pp. 39. Original pale grey wrappers, lettered in black on front cover, untrimmed. Printed in red and black, opening latter "S" illuminated in gold and embellished in blue ink. Brown glue stains showing through on pastedowns. An excellent copy. First edition in book form (originally published in The Egoist, London 1917), and one of a tiny edition of 50 numbered copies only (this one numbered 42). It is one of Doolittle's earliest publications. "Charles Clinch Bubb, 1876-1936, or 'Canon Bubb' as he preferred to be called, was a notable American printer. As a curate and later rector of Grace Parish Church in Cleveland, [he] began the Clerk's Press using a hand press and operating in the Church. The name of the press comes from Bubb's consideration of himself as a Clerk in Holy Orders. Bubb was also a member of the bibliophilic Rowfant Club in Cleveland from 1912 to the early 1920s. Between the years 1908 and 1919, Bubb produced more than a hundred small editions of beautiful volumes. Bubb would move on to become rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Fremont, Ohio in 1921, at which time the output of his press appears to have ceased... His printing subjects varied widely, from a close association with the imagist school of poetry, corresponding with Ezra Pound, printing Hilda Doolittle's first book and other works by Richard Aldington, to translations from Greek, Latin, Italian, French, and Russian. Special Collections owns manuscript and typescript versions of a few of Aldington's translations" (Oberlin College Special Collections).

        PARNASSUS ON WHEELS

      1917 - MORLEY, Christopher. PARNASSUS ON WHEELS. Garden City: Doubleday, Page, 1917. 12mo., cloth & pictorial boards in dust jacket. First Edition. An immaculate copy of the first edition. First issue, with the misprint "Y ears" for "Years" on p. 4, line 8 and with the "l" missing in "goldenrod" on page 169, line 11. Also in the first state dust jacket, with "vibrating" instead of "beating" on the front cover. The entire front endpaper is covered by the following signed autograph inscription by the author, to famous movie director Frank Capra: "This is Frank Capra's copy of this little book-and I am grieved when I think how much he paid for it! It cost him 160 times as much as if he had bought it in September 1917- also, the Author is not worth 160 times what he was then! There is a mistake somewhere! With embarrassment and every good wish- Christopher Morley Jan 28-1935." It is interesting to note that the quotation on the front jacket does not agree with the text of the book, as it appears on p. 146 and leads to speculation that some subsequent issues of the book were issued without dust jackets. With the John C. Eckel bookplate. Near fine; very tiny nicks or short tears to a lovely dust jacket. Enclosed in a nice leather and cloth slipcase with gilt lettering on the spine. A great association copy in wonderful condition! $4000.00. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        TSUKI NI HOERU. HOWLING AT THE MOON

      1917. Fine. ONCHI, Ko^shiro^ & TANAKA Kyo^kichi, artists and designers; HAGIWARA Sakutaro^, poet. TSUKI NI HOERU. [HOWLING AT THE MOON]. To^kyo^, Kanjo^shisha. Taisho^ 6 [1917]. Bound in paper-covered boards with a thick paper printed dustwrapper, 20.0 x 14.0 mm. The dustwrapper has a design by Tanaka and there are 11 internal plates, as well as three woodblock prints by Onchi. This poetry collection, self-published by Hagiwara (1886-1942) in 500 copies, is regarded as creating a revolution in Japanese poetry. The spirit inspiring the work, according to Hagiwara, was "psychic terror"and, as such, broke all the traditional bonds with traditional poetics. Nothing can be said that would over-emphasize the importance of Onchi and Tanaka to the development of printmaking and book design in an abstract and avant garde idiom in early 20th Century Japan. With their fellow student Fujimori Shizuo at the To^kyo^ School of Fine Arts, they created the wonderful art magazine TSUKUHAE in 1914. It ceased production in 1915 when Tanaka died of tuberculosis. His work, along with that of Onchi were combined in this volume. Thus the combination of the two, along with the work of Hagiwara make the first edition of HOWLING AT THE MOON one of the most important treasures of the early avant garde in Japan. The copy at hand suffers from cracking and edgewear of the dustwrapper, the cloth cover has a bit of starting to the hinges. I have examined images from three copies in collections besides this one and they all seem to suffer from the same weaknesses. Simply a very fragile book, privately printed in small numbers and very difficult to find.

        With the Irish in Frongoch.

      Dublin, The Talbot Press, 1917.. 8°. XI, 211, (1) pages. With a portrait frontispiece of Adjutant Brennan Whitmore and 8 illustrations. Original, illustrated Hardcover (half cloth with prison-cell-door illustration on front board. Unusually Excellent condition ! Only the spinelabel slightly rubbed. The binding and the frontcover especially excellent. Extremely Rare in this collectable condition !. Frongoch internment camp at Frongoch in Merionethshire, Wales was a makeshift place of imprisonment during the First World War. Until 1916 it housed German prisoners of war in an abandoned distillery and crude huts, but in the wake of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, Ireland, the German prisoners were moved and it was used as a place of internment for approximately 1,800 Irish prisoners, among them such notables as Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith. They were accorded the status of prisoners of war. Another of the prisoners was the future Hollywood actor Arthur Shields. It is a common misconception that Eamon de Valera was also imprisoned at Frongoch. During this time de Valera was held at Dartmoor, Maidstone and Lewes prisons. The camp became a fertile seeding ground for the spreading of the revolutionary gospel, with inspired organisers such as Michael Collins giving impromptu lessons in guerrilla tactics. Later the camp became known as ollscoil na reabhloide, the "University of Revolution" or sometimes "Sinn Fein University". With the appointment of Lord Decies as Chief Press Censor for Ireland after the Rising in 1916, Decies warned the press to be careful about what they published. William O'Brien's Cork Free Press was one of the first papers he suppressed under the Defence of the Realm Act 1914 (DORA regulations) after its republican editor, Frank Gallagher, accused the British authorities of lying about the conditions and situation of republican prisoners in the internment camp. (Wikipedia) The camp was emptied in December 1916 when David Lloyd George replaced H. H. Asquith as Prime Minister. The local school Ysgol Bro Tryweryn now stands on the site of the former camp but a commemorative plaque stands nearby, with inscriptions in Irish, Welsh and English.
