        Unpublished Manuscript Account, Describing Salonika During a Little-Known War Campaign in Greece, Part of the Macedonian Front of World War I, by a Firsthand Participant and Surviving British Officer in the Royal Army, Made After His Return to England.

      Salonika [Thessaloniki], 1917-1919, 1917. Unpublished Manuscript Account with Photographs. Rare Firsthand Account of Salonika, During a Little-Known WWI Campaign of Of the Macedonia Front. 8vo. 122 pages (consisting of 82 pages narrative in typescript, 1 page table of contents, 2 pages outlining Private Petch's personal timeline of movements, plus 37 pages of illustrations mostly in the form of on-the-spot newsprint photographic views clipped and pasted to paper leafs, but also a scant few small original photographs taken by the writer similarly pasted to leafs, and one example of local paper currency). Together with three original photographs, one "Derby Scheme" uniform armband (brassard, armlet) with the rare clear issue-stamping Red Crown emblem, two ephemeral army documents, and one identification label of Eric George Petch born 1892, and one unused field Army Book 153 for messages (issued in 1915). Together with eight additional family photographs. Some creasing to manuscript leafs, lacking the Forward (pages 1 & 2), otherwise the lot in very good condition, a most uncommon war archive pertaining to a lesser known campaign seldom reported on even in its day. Note: Some photographs and identification herein are of Private Eric George Petch of the British Army Labour Corps. The single-leaf itinerary of war-time movements, which corresponds to the manuscript, is attributed to Percival W. Petch. A cutting from a colour advertisement suggests that Percival Petch was later a comedian. Further research is warranted to ascertain whether the two names are one in the same, Eric Petch using calling himself Percival Petch as a trade name for writing and performing; or whether these are two separate men, relations who both served in the Royal Army during the First World War. Period accounts of the Salonika Campaign are exceedingly scarce, in any form, a rather alarming and certainly regrettable fact for the heros who fought and died in the decisive assaults. [Taking a back seat to the heavily reported Battle of Somme as well as the Sinai and Palestine Campaign, the perilous service and innumerable deaths occurring in Salonika saw no news coverage in Britain during the war itself. Finally, a small portion of a despatch by Sir George Milne was published in the Times on 23 January 1919, long after war's end, and thus, owing to its brevity, effectively maintaining the silence of this untold battle. Finally, a detailed account was published twenty-some years later by 'An Unprofessional Soldier' on the Staff of 28th Division, his paper titled, "I saw the Futile Massacre at Doiran" and published in the 1938/9 Issue 46 of "I Was There." This seems to have been first substantial published account in Britain to draw attention to the campaign. In it he stated, "The Battle of Doiran is now a forgotten episode of the Great War, overshadowed by the doings of Haig in France and Allenby in Palestine. There was no full contemporary account of the Battle in any British Newspaper... The very name of the battle is unknown to most. Yet, in singularity of horror and in tragedy of defeated heroism, it is unique among the records of British arms. The real work of the assault was entrusted to the men of the 22nd and 26th Divisions, who were to attack the Doiran hills, co-operating with the Cretan Division of the Greek Army and a regiment of unreliable Zouaves..."] From the frontlines of a little-known and virulent campaign in Greece during the Great War, comes a surprisingly detailed and eloquent description of indigenous customs in the environs of what was then known as Salonika, this dispersed with observations on the hardships imposed by the war, and the awkward integration of multiple nationalities trying to survive economically, physically and psychologically. Perhaps most significant, in terms of historic events in Salonika, is a chapter he titles "Flames Destroy" and which describes the devastating Great Thessaloniki Fire of 1917. . Manuscript.

        Anecdoten van paarde kenners, paarde liefhebbers, ruijters en ross-kammers. Naar waarheid en eijge ondervinding opgesteld. Door een gepensioneerd cavallerie officier.[The Netherlands, ca. 1815]. Folio (38 x 24 cm). Manuscript on paper written in brown ink in a readable Latin hand, with the title on p. 72, illustrated with 30 small watercolour drawings of horses mounted on the leaves (mostly about 8.5 x 11 cm), and a washed pen drawing with 5 caricature figures before a monument (9.5 x 16 cm), mounted above the dedication. Half vellum (1930s?), gold-tooled spine.

      Nicolaas Gerard van Huffel, in: Oude Kunst II (1917), pp. 248-252. Very beautifully illustrated manuscript by a retired Dutch cavalry officer who had been in Prussian service against Napoleon Bonaparte in the years 1806 to 1813, giving his personal account of the horses he kept and traded during his career. The fine watercolours, executed with great care and refined draughtsmanship, show portraits of all 31 horses the author once owned. The text of the manuscript is also of considerable interest. The author relates many entertaining stories and includes many personal details his lifelong schooling in horsemanship, displaying a profound knowledge of horses. He also gives accounts of his daily life in the Prussian army. The manuscript provides insight into the life of the Silesian and Saxon noblemen, proceedings at the horse market in Leipzig, the situation of the army before the Battle of Jena, etc. Moreover, it gives a detailed descriptions of the terrible plundering of the French Wurtenberger Light Cavalry in Silesia, in 1806, and of the Russian invasion of Wohlau in 1813. Separate treatises devoted to these incidents precede the main part of the manuscript (the anecdotes and other information concerning horses) and serve as a sort of preface to them. The author also gives an account of his stay at the camp of the Count van Salm near Bergen-op-Zoom, Netherlands, of a horseback trip from Vianen to Utrecht, during which his horse fell and died, and another trip, from The Hague to Zutphen, on a tireless Zeeland horse. The manuscript explicitly refers to events from 1806 to June 1813 and was probably written soon after the latter date.In 1917 the manuscript apparently belonged to Nicolaas Gerhard van Huffel (1869-1936), physicist, amateur painter, collector of graphic art and teacher at the school of graphic arts in Utrecht. The ink borders drawn around the mounted drawings have sometimes bled through the paper and on two leaves the stiffness of the mounted drawing has caused the manuscript leaf to tear along that border, a small and mostly marginal tear affects one word of the text, and there is a marginal stain in the foot margin of a couple leaves and occasional minor foxing, but the manuscript is still in very good condition, most of the watercolour drawings fine. A remarkable horse manuscript, providing insight into horse trading & keeping, and army life in the period 1806 to 1813 and with 30 beautiful watercolour drawings of horses.

This poster reportedly encouraged millions of Americans to join the Red Cross. Created by Alonzo Earl Foringer. This poster in is good condition with minor edge wear and foxing.

      Zus. 115 S., Qu.-Kl.-8 (Postkarten) bzw. 8 bis 4 (Briefe). An seinen Künstler-Freund Alfred von Schrötter. - Sehr erfreut! Merkwürdig!! Du hast nie so sauber u. deutlich geschrieben - eine Wohltat! Hans beeinflusst Dich! Erich: wie wichtig ist das Beherrschen fremder Sprachen! Da hat man in unserer Erziehung schwere Fehler gemacht! Hans wird großen Nutzen aus s. Gefangenschaft ziehen!! Wie viel Leute sollte man fangen, damit sie sich auf sich besinnen! [...] (Dachau, 28. 9. 1917). Die politische Lage!!

[...] Mein Herrichten der Bilder für meine Aprilausstellung am hiesigen Kunstverein ist 1 fürchterliches Geschäft. Vieles ist fertig zu machen, Rahmen passen nicht etc. [...] (Ebda., 5. II. 1932). - [...] Von Bedeutung war seine Freundschaft mit Adolf Hölzel, der in Dachau eine Malschule unterhielt und den er dort 1892 erstmals besuchte. 1896 übersiedelte Ludwig Dill nach Dachau, wo er sich in der damaligen Holzgartenstrasse (heute: Ludwig-Dill-Straße) ein kleines Häuschen gekauft hatte. Zusammen mit Arthur Langhammer und Adolf Hölzel gründete er die Malerschule Neu-Dachau, was ihn zu einem der wichtigsten Vertreter der Künstlerkolonie Dachau machte [...]. 1899 ging Ludwig Dill als Lehrmeister nach Karlsruhe.

Als Gründungsmitglied der Münchner Secession entwickelte er gemeinsam mit Dill und Hölzel eine effiziente Methode des Kunstunterrichtes, die den Schülern größtmöglichen Freiraum zur eigenen Entfaltung gewähren sollte. Im Jahre 1900 wurde er als Leiter einer Meisterklasse für Malerei an die Zeichenakademie in Graz berufen, an der er bis 1923 als weithin bekannter und sehr geschätzter Lehrer wirkte. Alfred Schrötter, der dem Steiermärkischen Kunstverein als Ausschussmitglied angehörte, bildete eine ganze Generation steirischer Künstlerinnen und Künstler heran, u.a. Marie von Baselli, Norbertine Bresslern-Roth, Leo Grimm, Franz Hofer, Axl Leskoschek, Karl Mader, Paul Schmidtbauer, Fritz Silberbauer und Franz M. Zerlacher. Neben Paul Schad-Rossa und Wilhelm Gurlitt stellte Alfred Schrötter von Kristelli eine Schlüsselfigur der Grazer Zeitkunst dar. - Beiliegend eine Bleistiftskizze Dills mit einer Wegbeschreibung. -

      1917 - at the Chelsea Arts Club, saying "Fancy my finding myself in this part of the world at last! It's the 3rd time that I've volunteered . There is seldom more than one point of excitement . it may be a cluster of palms about the reed huts of an Arab encampment - or a majestic dhow sailing down the river", near a village "an excited crowd of men women & children . run along the banks with fowls eggs, & fish to sell . They are . classicly grand . Yesterday a tall beauty reminded me . in features & pose of the tragic musing girl in Walker's "Vagrants" . The day before yesterday we passed Kurnah the site of the Garden of Eden . Since we left the Gulf for the river, we have been steaming for 5 days & it is at least another 3 before we reach the farthest line of the British conquest", he talks of the marvellous fertility of the riverside, "If her vision were not obscured by the startling events nearer home", Great Britain "would rub her eyes to see this enormous rich gain to her Empire . I wonder if the Dilettanti still meet . I like to imagine you stepping into the breach & giving a paper", he jokes about the subject of his next, envelope with F.P.O. postmark, 3 sides 8vo., 'On the Tigris - past Ezra's Tomb', c/o Postmaster, Bombay, 17th November Kut had been recaptured in February 1917 and Bagdad reached by river on the 11th March.

        [ALBUM OF ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS SHOWING THE SEVENTH NEW YORK INFANTRY PATROLLING THE TEXAS BORDER DURING THE MEXICAN REVOLUTION AND TRAINING IN SOUTH CAROLINA FOR WORLD WAR I SERVICE]

      McAllen, Tx.; Spartanburg, S.C., 1917. 72 silver gelatin photographs, most approximately 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches, plus two photo postcards. Oblong octavo. Black cloth album. Photos mounted directly to black card stock, with a few laid in. Several leaves chipped, first two leaves detached. Slight curling and mirroring to some images. About very good. A lively album of vernacular photographs compiled by a member of Company M of the 7th New York Infantry from when the unit was station along the Texas border at McAllen during the Mexican Revolution and when it was training for service in World War I in South Carolina. Forty of the images in the album depict the company in McAllen, Texas, and the remaining thirty-two show them at Camp Wadsworth in Spartanburg, South Carolina. New York's 7th Regiment was called up from the National Guard and reached the Texas-Mexico border in July, 1916. More military units followed, and the force at McAllen eventually numbered 10,000 soldiers. The photographs contained here show the men on patrol along the border, riding horses, posing with civilians and around the city, handling rattlesnakes, and performing exercises. Other images show the men in their tents, horsing around and gambling, and standing by the Rio Grande. One of the photo postcards shows a group of Mexican generals, including Pancho Villa. The South Carolina pictures document some of the same activities, with more emphasis on training exercises, camp activities, and group photographs. Many of the images from this period are captioned in manuscript on the versos. After its training was complete, the regiment was sent to Belgium and France, where it served with distinction. An engaging photograph album that unites two of the major American military concerns of the period.

        Cours des Téléphonistes de Ligne & des Téléphonistes d'Observation

      OFFERING: An exceptional World War I manuscript guide to the first telecommunications training course taught to technical servicemen at the École Spéciale Militaire de Saint-Cyr. An introduction to aerial observation and reconnaissance methods used by the French Navy Airship Corps, the manuscript is divided into a technical methods overview and an extensive reconnaissance appendix with graphic study examples. Completed sections are documented and dates precede the course's inception, making it likely, the maker, A. L. G. Pariset of the French Navy, participated in preparations for teaching the course. Parisets had been French Navy officers for generations. The 164 pages manuscript has 108 finely executed color illustrations and decorations, most done to scale, some in pastel, pen & ink and pencil. Some data entries, captions and texts are written in multiple inks and the title page is done with inventive letter forms, after telephone apparatus. Neatly done mounts include the medallion lithograph on the half title page, (it shows the Premier Groupe D'Aerostation logo with dirigibles and balloons), and an extraordinary lift-off and reveal topography. The Operations Manual (pages 1-97) has sections on direct current power systems with generator and battery, field telephone instrumentation, military Morse code, and the launch and positioning of captive Caquot observation balloons using motorized winch techniques. The Reconnaissance Appendix (pages 98-164) demonstrates the interpretation and recording of enemy artillery intelligence with terrain imagery tables, aerial topography exercises for accurate mapping, an exposition of projectile designs with charges, fuses, and ranges, and an overview on recording meteorology data, including the making of altitude charts. DOCUMENTATION: The title page states the manuscript is done by Monsieur Pariset. An embellished signed inscription on the final page of the manuscript's operations section is dated October 21, 1917 and sited St. Cyr L'École. He has also initialed A. L. G. P. in an artillery table in the appendix, and on a rear endpaper. A meteorology table exercise, mounted in the appendix is dated September 13, 1917. The first contents page in the appendix is dated October 31, 1917. French Navy Airship Corps: established in 1916 but reliant on collaboration with the long established French Military Airship Service. Army airship equipment was transferred to the Navy in 1917 and the Aviation Center at St. Cyr was established November 26, 1917 to facilitate training. Their motto; "they study for victory." CONDITION DETAIL: Pages: clean, colors fresh, five pages with neatly cut author excisions, four at the gutter, p. 45 with a light bottom tip crease, pp. 71-72 with a tiny fore-edge chip. / Wrappers: some fingering, rubs, edge tears, cover label with slight soiling; corners on lower side chipped; sunfaded spine, crown and foot with some wear with loss. / Boards: lower side with bent corner. / Binding: spine slant, head and foot of hinges with splitting and rearmost signatures with light separation but binding is solid and reliable. ILLUSTRATIONS: 98 with captions including schematics, figures, tables, plans, charts and topographies. There are 52 figures, done in multiple inks or ink (one double-page, eighteen full-page) + 27 finished drawings, twenty four done in pastel, ink, and pencil (fifteen full-page), three in ink + 9 tables, one mounted, and five extending multiple pages (one illustrated table extends 4.5 pages) + 5 charts, 3 plans, and 2 topographies. DECORATIONS (10): 5 footpieces (1 repeat), 3 vignettes, 1 headpiece, and 1 lithograph by P. Tabor, dated March 1916.

SIZE: 172 x 110 mm. BACKGROUND: Telephones were first used in warfare by the British in India (1877) but the telephone was first used extensively by the military in World War I. Balloons were first used in warfare by the French at the Battle of Fleurus (1794), but development of techniques and operations expanded at an enormous rate during World War I and use of balloons for intelligence reached its peak. Both sides generally employed balloons a few miles behind the front lines. By November 1918, the French Navy Airship Corps was organized into 12 ballooning aviation centers with 104 pilots, 175 technical crew and 2657 non-specialists. [Vercken, Histoire succincte de l'aéronautique navale, p. 34] CAQUOT BALLOON: Colonel Charles Renard of the French Army developed a tethered balloon system attached to a trailer in 1880. An improved design was introduced by French engineer, Albert Caquot in 1914 and adopted by the Allies. The Caquot tethered Type R has a tear-drop shape with three stabilizing fins. Its steel cable attached to a superior two-motor winch that enabled safe tethering to an altitude of 3,000 feet.

      Chromolithograph, folding into original grey paper wrappers bearing printed title and explanatory text, former owner’s pastedown slip to front cover and upper-left corner of map (Good, map with some wear and chipping along original folds with very minor loss, some light stains from old tape repairs to verso; wrappers with edge-wear and detached at spine), 98 x 126 cm (38.5 x 49.5 inches). - Buenos Aires: Oficina Cartográfica Balcarce, 1917. Extremely rare and unusual – a very large-format propaganda and ethnographic map depicting the maximal territory of the envisioned future nation of Yugoslavia, published in Buenos Aires during the height of World War I by the Croatian émigré and political activist Marcel Kolin. This extremely rare, very large-format, separately issued work is one of the most extraordinary maps concerning Yugoslavia to be made during the 20th Century. Made in 1917, at the height of World War I, but before the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it depicts the hoped-for future nation of Yugoslavia, with its maximal territorial scope as envisioned by Pan-South Slavic activists. It was published in Buenos Aires, having been devised by the prominent pro-Yugoslavian propagandist Marcel Kolin, who then resided in exile in Chile. The publication was officially sponsored by the Jugoslavenska narodna obrana (JNO, the Yugoslav People’s Defence organization), a committee of Croatians living in South America dedicated to the cause of an independent Yugoslavia. The purpose this quad-lingual map was to establish and legitimize the notion of a future ‘Greater Yugoslavia’ in the minds of both Yugoslavians and global powers in the run up to the end of World War I and the supposed defeat of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In short, it was hoped that if the notion of a ‘Greater Yugoslavia’ gained popular currency then the supposedly victorious Entente powers would be inclined to support its creation at the resulting peace conference. - SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRITION.

        A PRINCESS OF MARS

      Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1917. First edition. Three line gift inscription in ink dated 1917 on front free endpaper. Orange enamel stamping on front cover a bit dull but fully present, top edge of pages dusty, a nearly fine copy. Nice copies of this book are uncommon. No dust jacket. (19956). Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xii [xiii-xvi] 1-326 [327] [328: blank], five inserted plates with illustrations by Frank E. Schoonover, original dark brown cloth, front and spine panels stamped in orange. The first book of the Mars series. Burroughs' first published story (written in 1911) and his only story to originally appear under a pseudonym. The story first appeared under the byline "Norman Bean" (he had intended that pen name be "Normal Bean") as a six-part serial "Under the Moons of Mars" in a Munsey magazine, THE ALL-STORY, February-July 1912. This novel preceded the first publication of "Tarzan of the Apes," published in the October 1912 issue of THE ALL-STORY. This popular novel inspired numerous writers and influenced the space faring sword and raygun stories as well as influencing scientists and filmakers. "...this pioneering account of John Carter's magical transmission to the the planet Mars and his subsequent baroque adventures established a new template for fiction set on other planets, developing such imaginative spaces as arenas for exuberantly uninhibited tales of exotic derring-do ... Although it hardly qualifies as science-based speculative fiction, Burroughs's account of Barsoom was enormously influential in pulp SF, standing at the head of a rich subgenre of 'planetary romances' whose evolution was carried forward by such writers as C. L. Moore, Leigh Brackett, and Ray Bradbury." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-194. Made into a feature film in 2012 as "John Carter."

The Wessex Edition, the definitive edition of Hardy's works, and a finely bound set. Macmillan became Hardy's publishers in 1902 and "in 1912 they undertook a new and definitive edition, called (at Frederick Macmillan's suggestion) the 'Wessex Edition'. For this edition Hardy revised his novels throughout for the last time … In a 'General Preface to the Novels and Poems', dated October 1911 and printed in Vol. I, he explained his classification of his novels here adopted for the first time (revealing his estimate of their relative merits) and offered a brief apologia for his work. This is an essay of primary importance … The Wessex Edition is in every sense the definitive edition of Hardy's work and the last authority in questions of text" (Purdy). Volumes 1-18 make up the novels and volumes 19-23 the poetry; a further volume was published posthumously in 1931 but is not included within this set.

His views were accepted and from 1917 till the end of the war he was a neurological specialist in the Army, and subsequently under the Ministry of Pensions. He did excellent work in this field, practising at Maghull near Liverpool, and collaborating with Drs Bernard Hart, T H Pear, and Aldren Turner. He wrote his thesis for the London doctorate on psychoneuroses of war. After his earlier experience in surgery and tropical medicine, Culpin proved a highly original and successful psychiatrist. He was appointed lecturer in psychoneurosis at the London Hospital in 1920, and built up a large private practice at 1 Queen Street. His methods were never spectacular, but he was a pioneer of dynamic psychology. (Source: Royal College of surgeons) During World War 1 Culpin served in the Royal Army Medical Corps. As a military surgeon at Portsmouth and in France his experiences with shell-shocked soldiers led to an interest in war neuroses and its varied psychological manifestations. He published his research findings for his doctoral thesis as Psychoneuroses of War and Peace (Cambridge, 1920). In the 1920s he devoted his time to medical psychology, researched industrial health and lectured part time at the University of London. An eclectic thinker, with interests in psychoanalysis, temperament and abnormality, he was captive of no school, a loner, although well respected. In 1931 Culpin was appointed professor in industrial and medical psychology at the London School of Health and Tropical Medicine. Among his publications was a 1935 article for the Practitioner, 'Neurasthenia in the Tropics', which argued that white people could inhabit the tropics without ill effects.

        Two Summers In The Ice-Wilds Of The Eastern Karakoram. The Exploration of Nineteen Hundred Square Miles Of Mountain And Glacier

      E. P. Dutton and Company, New York 1917 - FIRST PRINTING of First Edition. ORIGINAL tan cloth covers with gilt lettering spine, black lettering front cover, color decoration lower front cover. The book measures 235mm tall x 160mm, and has 296 pages, 141 sepia photos (brown & aqua tinted), 3 folding color maps, index. CONDITION: near fine condition. The text block has been expertly re-sewn and placed with new end-papers. Most copies of the first edition require sewing since the original binding was bound with glue that deteriorated over time. The binding is now properly restored such that it will last for hundreds of years. There is minor puckering (not bad) to the upper front cover, a condition that is fairly common with this book, again due to the original glue that was used. There are no previous owner marks or writing on any pages, no foxing, solid binding. The covers are remarkably clean and bright. There is only a tiny touch of rubbing at the extreme tips of the corners. A superb condition example of a book that often suffers serious condition problems. By far the scarcest of the Workman mountaineering books, especially in collectible condition like this example. COMPLETE with all plates, fold-outs, and maps.

        Fight or Buy Bonds. Third Liberty Loan

      Forbes, Boston 1917 - Original poster. Lithograph. Measures 30 x 40" This beautifully-rendered World War I-era poster is a fine example of the work of Howard Chandler Christy, one of the foremost illustrators of wartime posters in the US. This poster features one of the artist's typical "Christy Girls" waving an American flag with a backdrop of storming troops behind her. The scene is rendered in a watercolor-like style that likely contributed greatly to the poster's effectiveness in motivating American citizens to support the war effort. The poster was released by Third Liberty Loan, which was the largest fund-raising effort in American history to that date. The poster is in good condition with minor edge wear near the top right edges. Fold along center of poster. A lovely example of Christy's work and an icon of the World War I era. Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952) was an American magazine illustrator who gained a reputation for military scenes thanks to pictures he made during the Spanish-American War. His World War I posters were incredibly popular as well, particular in his distinct depiction of charming women with strong values.
