        Lord Jim. A Tale

      London, Toronto, Paris: J. M. Dent,, November 1917. Octavo. Original olive cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles and design to spine and front in black, blue top edge. With the dust jacket. Photographic portrait frontispiece. Small Times Book Club ticket to rear pastedown. Very light rubbing and fading to ends and edges of boards, spotting to edges and a few early leaves, partial toning to endpapers, still a very nice copy indeed in the jacket that is faintly spine-tanned, generally a little rubbed at the extremities small chips to corners and slightly larger chips either side of the head of spine panel, causing some ruffling between, still a highly presentable copy. Presentation copy of the second impression of the first revised edition (first impression being June of the same year, originally serialised in Blackwood's 1898?-9 and first published in book form in 1900), superbly inscribed by Conrad on the half title, quoting the final words of the novel, "... while he waves his hand sadly at his butterflies. / Concluding words. / Joseph Conrad / 1920." The striking jacket on this revised edition, illustrated with a likeness of Conrad himself, neatly summarises Lord Jim as "the romantic story of a brave man's effort to regain self-respect after a deed of fatal and unexpected cowardice.

        Munition Drawings. From the Collection Presented to the British Museum by His Majesty's Government.

      Country Life, 1917. - Large folio [32 x 24 inches]. Consisting of title sheet, contents sheet and six tinted lithographs numbered I - VI in a stiff paper portfolio as issued. The 6 lithographs are: I. The Giant Slotters. II. Mounting a Great Gun. III. Moving Heavy Gun Tubes. IV. The Night Shift Working on a Great Gun. V. Night Work on the Breach of a Great Gun. VI. A Coring Machine at Work on a Big Gun Tube. A small tear to the edge of the front cover otherwise an excellent copy. Bone was the first Official War Artist, being appointed in May 1916. His major contribution was the two volume collection' The Western Front' and 'With the Grand Fleet'. Less well-known were these very large lithographs, probably published in relatively small numbers and obviously intended for framing. The quality of the reproduction is superior to the book versions of his drawings and they rarely turn up for sale. It is believed that only two series were issued, this one and the companion 'With the Grand Fleet', also offered for sale.

        PATIENT PERIODICAL in THE VASSARION, Volume Twenty-nine.

      1917 - MILLAY, Edna St. Vincent. "THE PATIENT PERIODICAL," in THE VASSARION, Volume Twenty-nine. Poughkeepsie, NY: Vassar College, 1917. Illustrated. Small quarto. Two parts bound as one: 204,[28]; 55,[1] pp. Black paper with a simulated leather texture, title printed in white on spine, an owl device which incorporates the year is stamped in silver gilt on upper board. Vassar-designed bookplate with student signature, a member of the class of 1918, on recto of frontispiece. Binding is sound though chipped at crown, superficially rubbed along joints, and worn through just at the tips of corners. Text and photos are clean. This is the Vassar College yearbook for the class of 1917. Printed on p. 59 are the lyrics to "The Patient Periodical," Millay's winning entry in the Class Song Contest of 1916 for which she wrote both the words and music. Millay's senior portrait appears on p. 80; and there is an informal picture of her on p. 27 of the second part in which she is identified as Vincent, her familiar name. Millay's name also appears as a member of the Tree Ceremonies Committee (p. 53), as a cast member of "The Locked Chest" (p. 122), and as President of the Spanish Club (p. 168). Millay, a scholarship student at Vassar, began her studies at the age of twenty-one. While there, she studied literature and languages, and wrote and appeared in several plays for college productions. She had trouble obeying the rules and regulations meant to protect young Vassar students and was very nearly barred from graduation but for the intervention of faculty and students. After garduation, and before the year had ended, Millay began her successful and very public career by publishing Renascence and Other Poems and moving to New York City. [a]

        [Album with 12 Chinese watercolours].[China, 19th century]. Oblong album (23.5 x 33.5 cm) with 12 delicate gouache and watercolour paintings on so-called rice paper (each ca. 19 x 28 cm), mounted on the album's leaves, each painting framed with strips of blue silk ribbon backed with paper attached at the corners. Embroidered binding (1917 or earlier), green braided ties.

      An album with 12 vibrantly coloured "pith paintings" showing Chinese junks and other boats, each mounted on a verso (so that the book opens from what in a western book would be the back). Chinese texts appear on the flag of the first boat and stern of the fifth. Pith paintings, often depicting scenes from daily life, flowers, birds or butterflies, were most popular from the 1830s to the end of the century. Parts of the image are painted with a thick layer of gouache (some parts matte and some parts glossy) that sits on the surface of the velvety paper while the watercolour soaks in, giving a distinctive texture and three-dimensional quality. Typically small and fragile, these subtle watercolours were created for the export market to meet the increasing demand for inexpensive souvenirs. There was a flourishing trade in the miniatures, until they were superseded by the less expensive picture postcard. They are painted on what is usually called "rice paper", now sometimes "pith paper", which is neither paper nor made from rice. It is a thin layer of pith cut with a knife from the plant Tetrapanax papyriferum, related to ginseng.With small tears or holes in a few paintings, mostly in the corners and affecting only the open water or sky of the background, some indentations in the paper across the sky, occasionally touching the rigging of a boat, minor spotting, first album leaves and paste-down with marginal waterstains, overall in good condition. A lovely album of brightly coloured Chinese pith paintings of boats.

        The Curtiss Standard JN-4B Military Tractor Hand Book.

      Buffalo. Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Corporation. 1917. - The First Edition. Illustrated with diagrams, 3 of which are fold-outs,detailing the specs and assembly instructions for the airplane.Laid-into volume are two Request for Transportation receipts issued by the U.S. War Department and a period Morse Code Pocket Signal Disk. 32pps. Thin 8vo (5"x8"). Bound in imprinted green cloth over boards. "The Curtiss JN-4 "Jenny" was one of a series of "JN" biplanes built by the Curtiss Aeroplane Company of Hammondsport, New York, later the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company. Although the Curtiss JN series (the common nickname was derived from "JN") was originally produced as a training aircraft for the U.S. Army, the "Jenny" continued post-World War I as a civil aircraft as it became the "backbone of American post-war [civil] aviation.Thousands of surplus Jennys were sold at bargain prices to private owners in the years after the War and became central to the barnstorming era that helped awaken America to civil aviation through much of the 1920s.The Curtiss JN-4 is possibly North America's most famous World War I aircraft. It was widely used during World War I to train beginning pilots, with an estimated 95% of all trainees having flown a JN-4. The U.S. version was called "Jenny", a derivation from its official designation. It was a twin-seat (student in front of instructor) dual control biplane. Its tractor prop and maneuverability made it ideal for initial pilot training with a 90 horsepower (67 kW) Curtiss OX-5 V8 engine giving a top speed of 75 miles per hour (121 km/h) and a service ceiling of 6,500 feet (2,000 m).The JN-4B was powered by an OX-2 piston engine, 76 built for the U.S. Army, nine for the U.S. Navy.The Jenny remained in service with the US Army until 1927.After World War I, thousands were sold on the civilian market, including one to Charles Lindbergh in May 1923 in which he then soloed. Surplus US Army aircraft were sold, some still in their unopened packing crates, for as little as $50, essentially "flooding" the market.With private and commercial flying in North America unhampered by regulations concerning their use, pilots found the Jenny's slow speed and stability made it ideal for stunt flying and aerobatic displays in the barnstorming era between the world wars, with the nearly identical Standard J-1 aircraft often used alongside it. Some were still flying into the 1930s. Small Blind embossed stamp of the State of California Bureau of Weights and Measures to lower corner of Front Free Endsheet and Title Page. A bit musty, else a Near Fine, bright, crisp copy unblemished by foxing or any other blemish to text or plates. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
