1918. BARBUSSE (Henri) - RENEFER (Raymond, ill. de). Le Feu (Journal d'une escouade). Paris, Gaston Boutitie, 1918. -------------------------------------------- Un fort vol. au format in-4 (309 x 246 mm) de 338 pp., en feuilles, sous couverture titrée à rabats rempliés et coffret cartonné. Edition en partie originale et première illustrée de cette ''intéressante et estimée publication''. (in Carteret). Tirage unique à 300 exemplaires seulement ; celui-ci comptant parmi les 200 numérotés du tirage sur papier de Rives à la forme. Il s'agrémente - ici en premier tirage - de 86 saisissantes compositions de Raymond Renefer ; dont dix eaux-fortes originales. Lequel fut ''élève de Paulin à l'Ecole nationale des Beaux-Arts. Il fut un abondant illustrateur''. (in Bénézit, citant la présente contribution de l'artiste). ''Pour les hommes du 231e régiment d'infanterie, les différences d'âge et de condition sociale n'importent plus. Tous sont venus s'enterrer dans les tranchées boueuses de Crouy, sous la pluie et le feu de la mitraille allemande. Leur seule certitude face aux armées ennemies: "I'faut t'nir". Barbusse fut l'un des leurs. Tiré de ses carnets de guerre, ce roman, prix Goncourt 1916, révéla à ceux de l'arrière le quotidien des poilus: leur courage, leur camaraderie, leur argot, mais aussi la saleté, l'attente et l'ennui. Cette guerre, l'état-major, le gouvernement et la presse patriotique la censurent. Il faudra un roman comme Le Feu pour en dire toute la barbarie mécanique, mais aussi l'espoir: celui de s'en sortir vivant.''. ''M. Renefer a été aussi riche en matière que M … [Click Below for Full Description]

PRINCE SABAHADDIN, (1877-1952).
Kader Matbaasi, Istanbul, 1918. Modern cloth bdg. Foolscap 8vo. (17 x 12 cm). In Ottoman script. Roumi: 1334 = Gregorian: 1918. Ozege: 21840. First and only edition. Prens Sabahaddin was born in Istanbul in 1879. His mother was Seniha Sultan, daughter of Ottoman Padisah Abdülmecit I, and Nalan-î Dil Kadin Efendi. His Father was Mahmud Celaleddin Pasa, the son of Kaptan-i Derya Gürcü Halil Rifat Pasa. Prince Sabahaddin, nephew of the Sultan Murad V, Abdul Hamid II, Mehmed V, and the last Sultan Mehmed VI, had a versatile education at the Ottoman palace and is considered the founding father of Ottoman liberalism. Sabahaddin fled in late 1899 with his brother and father, who had fallen out with Abdul Hamid II, first to Great Britain, then to Geneva, the center of opposition to the Ottoman Sultan.[citation needed] After a warning by the Federal Council in Geneva in 1900, they left and went to Paris and London. Sabahaddin advocated revolutionary violence and led the opposition in exile. During the first phase of his career in political opposition (1900-1908) he sought unity between Christians and Muslims met with Muslim and Christian leaders. He received support in the cause of the Young Turks. In this time he met Edmond Demolins and became a follower of the school of social sciences. Sabahaddin advocated liberal economic policies in his Tesebbüs-ü Sahsi ve Adem-i Merkeziyet, which became a rival to Ahmed Riza's Committee for Union and Progress. This division plagued the Young Turk movement before 1908 and would provide the central dispute in the more institutionalized political … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eins von 40 Exx. auf Japan, vor Verstählung der Platte.- Literatur: Hofmaier 133 B a mit dem Blindstempel der Marées Gesellslchaft. 1 von 40 Exx. auf Japan, vor der Verstählung der Platte; Beckmann Liste 177; Glaser 114; Gallwitz 104.- Vorzüglicher Abdruck mit vollem Rand. Max Beckmann zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Künstlern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Basierend auf neuen Kunstauffassungen des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts, wie etwa dem Impressionismus und Expressionismus, sowie altmeisterlichen Kunsttraditionen entwickelte Beckmann einen ganz eigenen Stil, der bewußt als Gegenposition zum abstrakt-geometrischen Stil, etwa dem Kubismus oder Futurismus, verstanden werden wollte und die Figur in den Mittelpunkt seines Schaffens stellt. Nach einer Ausbildung an der Weimarer Kunstschule bei C.F. Smith (1859-1917) hielt Beckmann sich u.a. in Paris, Holland und Florenz auf und ließ sich 1904 in Berlin nieder. 1914 war er Mitbegründer der „Freien Sezession Berlin", 1919 der „Darmstädter Sezession". 1925-1932 lehrte er am Städelschen Kunstinstitut. Daneben unterhielt er ein Atelier in Paris. 1933 wurde er von den Nationalsozialisten seines Amtes enthoben, er zog nach Berlin. 1937 wurden seine Bilder auf der Münchner Ausstellung „Entartete Kunst" ausgestellt, wo auch sie als „artfremd" diffamiert wurden. … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Wisden
Hi, This lot is an Original 1918 Hardback Wisden . It is in Excellent condition. In fact it is as good as my own. I am quite lucky at the moment to own such beautiful WW1 Wisdens. This book has wonderful front and spine gilt, there are two tiny marks to the spine cloth by the 1918 and a couple of small marks to the boards , small rounding to the board corners but overall on the outside this book is superb. Inside the hinges are strong and the pastedown a lovely yellow and not faded around the edges. Very nice photoplate and the book hardly has a spot, I had to compare it against my own and it was a tie. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cripps-Day Francis Henry
London. Bernard Quartich. 1918. Hard Cover. 4to. This is an early 19th century casebinding comprised of full vellum over stiff boards. The title is written in black ink at the top of the spine. The spine has 5 raised bands and the boards are in near fine condition with very little wear except a tiny amount at the head of the spine. There is a previous owner paste down on the front endpaper. Quite heavy foxing to the endpapers and fore edge but the rest of the prelims and text block are clean. There is a tipped in letter attached to the ffep which appears to be form the author but the provenance has not been authenticated professionally. Happy to send photos. The date looks like June 1915 and the note includes the phrase ' Thanks for reading my book. it is kind of you'. If this is an author signature this edition is truly one of its kind. He was an academic historian of arms and armour and member of the Royal Academy. This hidden gem of a first edition is full of rich history, not only of the chivalric contests of the Middle Ages that it analyzes, but also of the history of the Smithsonian Institution and book history. Delving into the nitty-gritty of the sport over its half-millennium history, this book introduces important terminology used in the study of chivalry. What may be most intriguing about this book is how it functions as a skeuomorph: an object of advanced technology that imitates techniques of a bygone era for nostalgic purposes. Beautiful and intricate contemporary woodblock illustrations festoon the initial letters of chapters, imitating the rubrication of med … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small creases on some page corners, modest age-toning to the cheap paper, very good. Detailed account of a unit that was organized in Atlanta, Georgia, which saw extensive action, and sustained serious casualties. "The 325th Infantry was organized at Camp Gordon, Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 2, 1917 as a National Army unit in the 163rd Brigade of the 82nd Division" -Pg. 4. Includes much battle correspondence, orders and other communications, lists of the dead, etc. Rare. *OCLC* seems to locate no physical copies, mentioning that the title page of a microform copy was damaged, and thus providing no publication information; from our copy we think the title page never existed, and that the front wrap is stapled on a remnant stub.

Paris, France, 1918. A collection of 40 loose photographs on double-weight stock, in the original paper folder from the photographic studio, John Daniell & Sons of New York City. Folder is good only with chips, tears, and rubbing; the photographs are fine. An archive of photographs from Armistice Day in Paris in 1918 taken by an American onlooker. The photographs are taken on the route just beyond the Arch de Triumph with it in the background of many of the photos. There are throngs of people gathered to watch the troops march by with a focus on American troops. One photo shows the American Hospital Service car and another shows a waving American flag. There are troops on foot with rifles as well as mounted troops and men in military cars and vehicles. Armistice Day is now known as Remembrance Day in France and is still celebrated. On the 11th of November 1918 the streets were full of people and the *Daily Mirror* wrote at the time "processions of soldiers and munition girls arm in arm were everywhere." A wonderful collection of original photographs taken from the crowd on Paris' Armistice Day.

SCHWIMBECK, Fritz
Munich: Verlag Parcus & Co., 1918. First edition Folio (15 z 17 3/4 inches). One of 25 copes (#) on Japan of a total edition of 150 copes. Complete with text leaf, all eight original etchings (5 x 5 or 9 x 7 inches)). Each etching in a windowed mat with the original tissue guards. The whole housed in the original printed still paper portfolio. The mat on which each etching has been tipped into is browned due to poor paper quality (published directly on the heels of WWI) and the portfolio has some light soiling and a wrinle on the rear. The plates are textual material are all very good. A very good copy. This is a series of etchings that concern the ambiance of an old deserted house and the works are appropriately eerie. Titles include; "Verlassene Muhle" ("The Abandoned Mill"), "Im Herbststurm" ("In the Autumn Tower"), "Schatzgraber" ("Treasure Grabber"), "Auflosung" ("Resolution"), "Traum" ("Dream"), "Fieber" ("Fever"), "Damon" ("Demon"), "In Schnee" ("In the Snow"). Born in Munich, Schwimbeck studied painting at the Technical University in Munich in the studio of Friedrich BodenmŸller, as well as sculpture under the guidance of M. Kaeer. He was a self-taught etcher, and studied history of art for many years.

First Edition, First Printing, First Issue with 1918 date on title page and no later printings mentioned in what we believe is the First Issue Dust Jacket with no price on spine and correct blurbs [see below for an explanation]. Very Good in Good Dust Jacket. Tight binding; light foxing else clean pages and covers; foxing to endpapers; contemporary owner's name and date (November 25, 1918) on front endpaper; only slight wear; dust jacket has foxing as well as tears and chipping along edges; a couple of small scrape marks on spine; fairly presentable example; could be restored into a very nice jacket. [The $16,800 Swann Galleries copy (2012), the Mark Terry facsimile copy, and the Between the Covers reference copy all have no price on spine. It makes sense that the priceless issue would be earlier than because the $1.40 price is missing from Comstock's novel on rear flap as well. When Doubleday decided to change the price they blacked out the $1.40 price on spine and stamped $1.50 below it. If you notice the word "Illustrated" on the spine is where the $1.40 price would be. On priced copies the word "Illustrated" is lower on the spine. We think the price was omitted in the first batch of copies but quickly added The $12,000+ Peter Harrington copy, priced at $1.50, has a Christmas 1918 owner inscription. Our copy here has a November 25, 1918 contemporary owner inscription, making it earlier than the $1.50 issue, and likely the $1.40 issue.

The present book is a collaboration of the Hungarian photographer Jozsef Pesci (1889-1956), the German photographer Wanda von Debschitz-Kunowski (1870-1935) and the 23-year old Germaine Krull (1897-1985). Though the youngest of the three photographers, Krull became the best-known of them. She was born in the then Prussian province of Posen and moved to Munich in 1912 with her mother. In 1915 she joined the State Academy for Photo design. Krull opened her first photo studio in 1917.

In others, he reduces the scale and adds a richness of detail to create an effect similar to that seen in Perian and Indian miniature art. The pictures are generally serious but Dulac's ever-present humor creeps in" (Hughey).

Signé et daté en bas a gauchde. / et contre signé au dos. Robert Charles Goff (1837-1922) was a printmaker and painter who specialised in topographical scenes.[1] As an etcher he was strongly influenced by the work of James McNeill Whistler. Goff lived in London and Brighton but travelled extensively. He moved in the 1890s to a villa overlooking Florence and he and his second wife wrote about the area. He then moved during the First World War to Villa Valerie, Bellaria, La Tour-de-Peilz (In the Canton de Vaud), Switzerland where he died in 1922. Brighton and Hove Museum and Art Gallery hold a large collection of Goff's work. In 2011 art historian Alexandra Loske researched this collection in preparation for an exhibition of Goff's work at the museum's Prints and Drawings Gallery: Robert Goff: An Etcher in the Wake of Whistler (29 November 2011 to 29 April 2012). The exhibition comprised approx. 50 works by Goff, mostly etchings and some other works on paper. On display were local views of Brighton, Hove and Sussex, as well as pictures from his travels in other parts of Britain, Italy, Egypt and Japan. Wikipedia.

Physical and Bayonet Training Course]
London: Panora Limited, 1918. London, Panora Limited, September 1918. A vintage gelatin silver photograph (visible image size approximately 178 × 1408 mm), matted and behind glass in a period-style moulded wooden frame (external dimensions an impressive 330 × 1565 mm). A couple of tiny blemishes to the sky near the left-hand edge, and a few vertical creases with light surface cracks do not detract from this impressive display item. 'In the pre-war period, an officer or NCO seeking to become an instructor would have attended a six-week preliminary course at a Command gymnasium followed by an intensive and wide-ranging four-month course ... at the HQ School Aldershot; this in turn was followed by a three-month probationary period back in his unit before fully qualifying as an instructor. September 1914, however, witnessed a dramatic truncation ... the pressure to dispatch [the men] to units to begin physical and bayonet training meant the AI Course at HQ Aldershot was cut to 21 days ... These HQ courses would run for the duration of the war, with the numbers of trainees in each class soon raised from just under 200 to 500' (Nikolai Bogdnovic: 'Fit to Fight - A History of the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, 1860-2015', Bloomsbury, 2017). Bogdnovic makes clear that these courses included Territorials and Commonwealth Dominion troops (Canadians, New Zealanders, Indians and Australians), and later, Americans as well.
