Edgar Rice Burroughs
New York: 1918. The Return of Tarzan. Edgar Rice Burroughs. A. L. Burt Company. Hardback, publisher's green boards printed in black ink on the front and spine. 8vo. Printed from the first edition printing plates, the second book in the Tarzan series. Early reprint, but not the first Burt reprint, of the first edition published in 1915 by A. C. McClurg Company. This book published about 1919-20 and is in near fine condition, a nice attractive copy in a very nice, near fine to fine original dust jacket that has been signed and dated on the reverse by Hulbert Burroughs, the eldest son of the author on the Tarzana Ranch: 'Burroughs, Hulbert Tarzana Ranch Reseda California April 23 1925' Two strips of cello tape (and shorter one at the flap junction) are across the bottom and top edges of the verso of the jacket. I have encountered one other copy owned by Hulbert with the date and place on the verso as this one has, and it also had the tape strips on the verso. Probably something that Hulbert did to protect the jacket edges. A unique book and the A. L. Burt jacket is the best I have encountered for this title in decades of dealing with rare and used books. Near fine in near fine dust jacket with signature, date and Tarzana Ranch location. The way the name and location are written sows his business acumen and he was later to be in charge of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Incorporated. A nice piece of Burroughsiana. Quite rare.

[Oklahoma]. [Oil]
Muskogee, Ok, 1918. Very good.. [4]pp., on a large bifolium. Previously folded. A couple of very minor losses at fold points. Light tanning. Scarce, illustrated report from 1918 on the developments and production of the Oklahoma Oil Wells Company, based in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Much of the text is dedicated to an assessment of work completed on wells located at lease secured by the company near Sedan, in Chautauqua County, Kansas, to which the majority of available funds was being directed. The progress of four wells is assessed, and a report on construction and acquisition of other equipment necessary for the site is given. The production of other leases in Nowata and Muskogee Counties, Oklahoma, and Greenwood County, Kansas, is also discussed. The final page contains three photographic illustrations of a power plant and a well on the Sedan property, as well as a lengthy exhortation to invest in Liberty Bonds to support the federal government's war effort as World War I continued through 1918. Also with a separate typed letter dated January 9, 1917, soliciting investment from an Ohio resident.

Burroughs, Edgar Rice
Chicago: A. C. McClurg. Very good 1918 first edition in first edition dust jacket. Tarzan And The Jewels of Opar Edgar Rice Burroughs Chicago: A. C. McClurg, 1918 First edition in a totally unrestored very rare dust jacket with chips, missing matter and some closed tears as shown. Book is very good as shown and has the 1918 date in the title page. All 8 plates by St. John are present with the plate at page 204 professionally reattached. A name and address is written on the top portion of the front fixed endpaper in old script. Interior pages are very good with light smudging occasionally occurring. Four pages of ads about Burroughs books are in the rear of the book. The dust jacket is rare to encounter, only a handful probably exist, and it is attractive. This will be enclosed in crystal clear archival removable Mylar jacket protector without paper backing. Book will be sent well boxed and insured. I will consider fair and reasonable offers on the book. It is a rarity to find a dust jacket as this one. As I stated, not many exist now. My guess is probably five or six in existence from my experience selling books the last 30 years. Any inquires or questions please message me through eBay and I will get back to you.

Edition originale tirée à 580 exemplaires, celui-ci un des 500 sur vélin Lafuma (176). Rédigé en 1914, la guerre en différa la publication en 1918: dès 1917 Cendrars occupe un rôle de conseiller littéraire auprès des éditions de la Sirène, et c'est là qu'il publie Le Panama, choisissant le caractère Morland. "Je tiens au caractère Morland gras qui est un caractère actuel, sobre et pas artiste". C'est le même caractère typographique qu'il choisira pour La Fin de N.D. l'année suivante, qui donne un aspect effectivement moderne et mécanique.

Fascicoli in folio (cm. 31,5). Anno XV. Milano, 1918. ANNATA completa di 12 numeri in 10 fascicoli. Uso di carte differenti, applicazioni su cartoncino, illustrazioni a colori ecc. Perfetto stato di conservazione. "Il Risorgimento Grafico" fu il nome che Raffaello Bertieri diede alla rivista che seppe dare nuovo slancio alla tipografia italiana. "Nova ex antiquis" diventa, infatti, il suo motto, che traduce la volontà di recupero del glorioso passato della tradizione tipografica italiana che, va ricordato, dopo Giovanni Bodoni, era caduta nel buio della decadenza tecnica (con una sempre maggiore dipendenza dall'estero per i macchinari, la carta e i caratteri) e stilistica.

TENNYSON, Hallam (2nd Baron TENNYSON)
1918. Small octavo, one page, on the mourning stationery of his home on the Isle of Wight, Farringford House (Tennyson had lost one of his younger sons in action, and would lose another before the end of the war). Folded twice for posting; a few tiny marks; in excellent condition. The letter is brief enough to quote in full: 'Dear Lady Glenconner, I am deeply distressed not only for myself but also for all of you. Of course one cannot but be very sorry for both of them. I have spoken to L. fully, and he takes a really serious view now, I hope; and has promised not to see her during the war. L. ought to protect her against herself. I cannot write more, for I feel the thing too acutely. It was kind in you to write to me. Ever yours, Tennyson'. Lionel and Clarissa married in March 1918; she was still only 21 years old at the time. They had three children before their divorce in 1928. Each was to remarry (and redivorce) again. Hallam Tennyson (1852-1928), eldest son of the poet laureate Alfred (later 1st Baron), 'had initially sought the governorship of South Australia, but hesitated when it was offered to him in January 1899: Tennyson was influenced by speculation that after Federation the post might be subordinated to that of the governor-general, or even abolished. He arrived in Adelaide in April and proved popular: the press and the people saw him as hardworking, competent, dignified and frugal.... Appointed acting governor-general on 4 July 1902 after Lord Hopetoun's unexpected resignation, Tennyson was confirmed in this position in January 1903, at his own request for on … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bell, Gertrude].
Basrah, published by the Superintendent Government Press, [1918]. 12mo. (6), 202 pp. Original green cloth, gilt lettering to upper cover. In 1918 Gertrude Bell was the local agent of the Arab Bureau in Basrah and contributed many articles to the Arab Bulletin. She is credited with writing the second part of this book, Asiatic Turkey, and at least two articles in the first part are written by her. As a central figure in the establishment of the modern state of Iraq, no European could have been better placed to contribute to this collection of essays. Some of the essays concern the British occupation of parts of Mesopotamia during the First World War, while others are ethnographical, such as the short but fascinating description of the Sabaens. - Mild bubbling to cloth, lean to book-clock, some of the gilt lettering worn away, very good otherwise.

Pictorial covers, with glassine jacket, unopened, acheve d?imprimer on recto of final leaf (wrappers almost detached, wear at foot of spine and wrapper edges, discoloration of spine and wrapper edges). Paris [la Société d?imprimerie Levé]: Éditions SIC, 1918. First edition, ordinary paper issue, after 17 numbered grande papier copies, of this seminal work of surrealism. The preface to this work features the second use of the word ?surrealism? ? coined by Apollinaire - in print, the first being in the programme note by the same writer for the Cocteau-Massine-Satie-Picasso ballet Parade. ?Combining widely disparate elements in a cubist mosaic? (Bohn) to address the issue of falling birthrates in France, and with strongly anti-war and feminist overtones, the play was first staged as a production by SIC ? Pierre Albert-Birot?s modernist review ? on 24 June 1917 to ?tumultuous reception? (Bohn) although critical failure (Rentzou). The text is accompanied by the musical score, composed by Birot?s wife Germaine, along with seven cubist compositions by Serge Férat, who designed the costumes and staging for the performance.

McClurg, 1918 First edition in a totally unrestored very rare dust jacket with chips, missing matter and some closed tears as shown. Book is very good as shown and has the 1918 date in the title page. All 8 plates by St. John are present with the plate at page 204 professionally reattached. A name and address is written on the top portion of the front fixed endpaper in old script. Interior pages are very good with light smudging occasionally occurring. Four pages of ads about Burroughs books are in the rear of the book. The dust jacket is rare to encounter, only a handful probably exist, and it is attractive. This will be enclosed in crystal clear archival removable Mylar jacket protector without paper backing. Book will be sent well boxed and insured. I will consider fair and reasonable offers on the book. It is a rarity to find a dust jacket as this one. As I stated, not many exist now. My guess is probably five or six in existence from my experience selling books the last 30 years. Any inquires or questions please message me through eBay and I will get back to you.
