Post, Melville Davisson / Author of "The Nameless Thing," etc.
McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, Toronto, 1918. Ex Libris bookplate to front pastedown of C.F. Codere of White Oaks, who in the 1950s rose to become chairman of the board of the St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company, as well as a director of the Pullman Company. Copyright 1918 by D. Appleton and Company, no later printings mentioned. Earlier copyrights (1911-1917) are to Curtis Publishing, the Metropolitan Magazine Company, The Illustrated Sunday Magazine, and Red Book (all representing earlier magazine serializations, or appearances of these chapters as free-standing short stories in periodicals, especially the Saturday Evening Post.) As of 1998, the Ahearns in "Collected Books / The Guide to Values" valued the 1918 New York first edition of this Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone mystery at $750. However, spine and title page here tell us this is NOT the New York edition, but rather the far less common (having undoubtedly been issued in a much smaller number) 1918 CANADIAN first from McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, Toronto, evidently bound from first edition U.S. sheets, with appropriate numeral "(1)" to final page of text. In blue cloth with gilt titles, lacking rare dust jacket, this copy would grade "very good" save for a one-inch horizontal gouge through the cloth to rear board, reducing our grade here to "good." Post was a highly regarded writer of detective fiction in the early 20th century, his best work set in his native West Virginia, often involving the adventures of the justice-dispensing backwoodsman Uncle Abner. The 22 Uncle Abner tales, written between 1911 an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kuzmin, Mikhail with Ekaterina Turova (illustrator)
Petrograd: Segodnia, [1918]. Octavo (20.3 × 15 cm). Original staple-stitched linocut-printed wrappers; [4] pp. (not including wrappers). Publisher's device to rear wrapper (linocut print). Front wrapper partially colored (in yellow) by the artist. About very good; small stain to front wrapper; old Soviet bookstore label to inside of rear wrapper. First edition and the only lifetime publication of the fifth collection of poems by the Silver-Age poet and composer Mikhail Kuzmin (1872-1936), whose work was close to the Symbolists and Acmeists. Kuzmin's shortest collection of only two poems, it was published by the artist collective Artel "Segodnia" (Today). The first of the two poems is dedicated to a waking child, the second to Lili Brik. Little is know about the painter and graphic artist, Ekaterina Turova, who seems to have been a student of Mikhail Bernshtein in St. Petersburg, studying alongside Vladimir Tatlin and Vera Ermolaeva among others. Throughout the 1910s she was a member of numerous avant-garde and futurist art groups such as "Bezkrovnoe ubiistvo" [Bloodless Murder], "Svoboda iskusstvu" [Freedom to Art!], "Iskusstvo, revoliutsiia" [Art, Revolution], "Levyi block" [The Left Block] as well as the artist collective "Segodnia" [Today] (Marzio Marzaduri, Russkii literaturnyi avangard: materialy i issledovaniia, pp. 37-50). Turova married Bernshtein and the family moved to Ukraine in the late 1920s. She is last mentioned as an artist in 1927, as a participant in the Revolutionary art of Ukraine exhibit in Kharkov.

Whitehall, 25. I, 1918. 1? SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Gestrenges Schreiben des damaligen Rüstungsministers an seinen widerspenstigen Kollegen, Joseph Paton Maclay, 1st Baron Maclay (1857-1951), damals Schifffahrtsminister, über die Beschaffung von Rohstoffen aus Spanien und Narvik (Norwegen): "Your letter of the 22nd inst. does nothing to relieve my anxiety. Whether importations of Ore from Northern Spain or from Narvick are considered, it is perfectly clear that shipments are now proceeding at a rate which must lead to a complete breakdown in the Iron and Steel production and so affect every industry concerned in the prosecution of the war. The Nitrate position is even more serious than the iron and steel, because in this case the whole supply is seaborne, and the entire process of ammunition filling will come to an abrupt arrest. It is, further, very difficult for me to proceed without any idea of what the future has in store. I failed entirely to obtain any answer on this point from your Department. I have to make an enormous series of arrangements for the supply of the Army which depend absolutely upon Raw Material, and we cannot be told even generally within what limits we may expect to be supplied. I have been pressing for information on this vital point for more than three months without receiving anything in return except your invariable courtesy. I really do not know what to do [...] As it is we weem to be moving forward to a complete administrative breakdown [...]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr.

With Revista Bimestre begins an insurmountable tradition of these publications: to form around groups of intellectuals, to serve as a means of political and cultural proselytism, in some cases, and of cultural promotion, in others. The nineteenth Cuban sign, going through the magazines, the most bad cultural times, the process of shaping a national idiosyncrasy, just read the Cuban Album of the Good and the Good, the Cuban Magazine and the Elegant Habana. In the 1930s, the publications of Marxist orientation were highlighted, as intellectuals as Juan Marinello, Nicolás Guillén and Carlos Rafael Rodríguez provided an analysis of the unusual national bourgeoisie at this time. The debates between magazines have reached a dimension in bloody occasions, from the counterposition to periodicals like the Diary of the Marina, the World and Information. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Winston S. Churchill
1918. "Alas you have indeed suffered in this fearful convulsion of the world" - A strikingly poignant 30 December 1918 autograph letter signed by then-Minister of Munitions Winston S. Churchill to Editor James Louis Garvin, who lost both his only son and his wife during the First World War Winston S. Churchill Condition: Very Good This original autograph letter from Winston S. Churchill was written the month after Armistice ended the First World War and ten days before Churchill became Secretary of State for War and Air. The letter is written entirely in Churchill's hand on all four 8 x 5 inch (20.3 x 12.7 cm) panels of an 8 x 10 inch (20.3 x 25.4 cm) folded sheet of Churchill's embossed Minister of Munitions stationery and is accompanied by the original, franked envelope, which is marked "Private", addressed and also signed by Churchill. The letter is dated "30.XII.18" and reads "My dear Garvin, | Accept I beg you my | deepest sympathy in the | new & terrible loss you | have sustained. It is almost | the irony of fate that you | should be overwhelmed by | private sorrow at a time | when the victory of our | cause - for which you labored | so faithfully - has been so | wonderfully achieved. I fear | that Mrs. Garvin's death | was accelerated by the | grief she bore with | extraordinary fortitude - at | the sacrifice of yr gallant | soldier son.

GIDE (André) - (MICHELET René) - WHITMAN (Walt) -
Paris : Nouvelle revue française, 1918 (achevé d'imprimé daté du 15 septembre 1918) - un volume in-8 plein velours pourpre, dos à nerfs, pièce de titre et auteur sur maroquin, couverture conservée, 375 pages - papier uniformément jauni et rousseurs sur la page de couverture - Exemplaire à la provenance exceptionnelle : envoi autographe signé d'André Gide et daté du 28 décembre 1919 adressé « à mon petit ami » René Michelet, qui évoque la "première rencontre» qui vient d'avoir lieu avec le jeune poète belge (1900-1973). Sur la même page, ex-dono au crayon, «R à H avec une grande affection 19.1.29» : les initiales sont ceux de René Michelet et Herman de Cunsel. Cette rencontre avec les deux amis belges que Gide surnomme «les petits possédés» intervient alors que Gide vient d?augmenter Corydon, «coming out» confidentiel (seconde édition tirée à seulement 21 exemplaires en 1920), où il a le courage de s'attaquer à un préjugé tenace qui avait envoyé au bagne Oscar Wilde, le mentor de sa jeunesse. Il laissera passer plusieurs années avant d'oser signer Corydon, dans lequel il voyait son «livre le plus important». D'autant qu?en 1921, René Michelet est inquiété à son tour par la justice belge à laquelle Gide tente de le soustraire. Gide vit alors «des heures angoissées». En effet René Michelet, qui est alors, à ses yeux, «celui de tous les jeunes gens» qu?il a rencontré pour lequel il a «de plus de sympathie» («Marc à part»), est «sous le coup d?un mandat d? arrêt». Certes il «fait l? impossible pour l?aider à s?évader et à passer la frontière» afin d?«échapper à un épouvantable s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wilson, Woodrow
Princeton NJ / Washington D.C, 1918. Two TLS from Wilson, quotes from both letters were included in Hurley's 1927 book, The Bridge To France. The first letter, 11" x 8.5", 1 p., dated June 23, 1910, is addressed to Supreme Court Justice John M. Harlan from Wilson while he was serving as president of Princeton University. This was Wilson's last full year as university president prior to running for and winning as Governor of New Jersey. Responding to Harlan's letter he assures his commitment to party unity, "The last thing I should think of would be building up a machine of my own." Wilson goes on to be coy, but accessible to his political ambitions, "It seems to me as if the developments in Princeton make it pretty certain that my duty lies here in the immediate future and not in the political field, but I am eager.to help forward the rehabilitation of the great party." Letter is in near fine condition with toning along the edges, one mail fold across the center, a crease at bottom left corner and inconsequential nick at top left where a paper clip once resided. A short typed note at top left corner confirms that passages of this Private and Confidential letter appear on p. 6 of Hurley's book. John Marshall Harlan (1833 - 1911) served as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. He is often called "The Great Dissenter" due to his many dissents in cases that restricted civil liberties, including the Civil Rights Cases and Poesy v. Ferguson. His grandson John Marshall Harlan II was also a Supreme Court justice. Despite his supposed role of nonpartisanship on the Court, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Winston S. Churchill
Whitehall, London, 1918. This original autograph letter from Winston S. Churchill was written the month after Armistice ended the First World War and ten days before Churchill became Secretary of State for War and Air. The letter is written entirely in Churchill’s hand on all four 8 x 5 inch (20.3 x 12.7 cm) panels of an 8 x 10 inch (20.3 x 25.4 cm) folded sheet of Churchill’s embossed Minister of Munitions stationery and is accompanied by the original, franked envelope, which is marked "Private", addressed and also signed by Churchill. The letter is dated "30.XII.18" and reads "My dear Garvin, | Accept I beg you my | deepest sympathy in the | new & terrible loss you | have sustained. It is almost | the irony of fate that you | should be overwhelmed by | private sorrow at a time | when the victory of our | cause – for which you labored | so faithfully – has been so | wonderfully achieved. I fear | that Mrs. Garvin’s death | was accelerated by the | grief she bore with | extraordinary fortitude – at | the sacrifice of yr gallant | soldier son. Alas you | have indeed suffered in | this fearful convulsion | of the world. I know how | frail are the words | even of sincere friendship | to distract the mind from | the cause of hopeless de- | privation & loneliness; | but I wd not help adding | these few words of | sympathy to those of | yr. many friends. | I can never forget | yr unfailing kindnesses | to me in my days | of prosperity & the | smiles of encouragement | & welcome wh I always | received from yr wife | when I visited yr house. | She impressed me | much by her great | … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kuzmin, Mikhail with Ekaterina Turova (illustrator)
Petrograd: Segodnia, [1918]. Octavo (20.3 × 15 cm). Original staple-stitched linocut-printed wrappers; [4] pp. (not including wrappers). Publisher's device to rear wrapper (linocut print). Front wrapper partially colored (in yellow) by the artist. About very good; small stain to front wrapper; old Soviet bookstore label to inside of rear wrapper. First edition and the only lifetime publication of the fifth collection of poems by the Silver-Age poet and composer Mikhail Kuzmin (1872-1936), whose work was close to the Symbolists and Acmeists. Kuzmin's shortest collection of only two poems, it was published by the artist collective Artel "Segodnia" (Today). The first of the two poems is dedicated to a waking child, the second to Lili Brik. Little is know about the painter and graphic artist, Ekaterina Turova, who seems to have been a student of Mikhail Bernshtein in St. Petersburg, studying alongside Vladimir Tatlin and Vera Ermolaeva among others. Throughout the 1910s she was a member of numerous avant-garde and futurist art groups such as "Bezkrovnoe ubiistvo" [Bloodless Murder], "Svoboda iskusstvu" [Freedom to Art!], "Iskusstvo, revoliutsiia" [Art, Revolution], "Levyi block" [The Left Block] as well as the artist collective "Segodnia" [Today] (Marzio Marzaduri, Russkii literaturnyi avangard: materialy i issledovaniia, pp. 37-50). Turova married Bernshtein and the family moved to Ukraine in the late 1920s. She is last mentioned as an artist in 1927, as a participant in the Revolutionary art of Ukraine exhibit in Kharkov.

Édition originale américaine. PRÉCIEUX EXEMPLAIRE DE L'AUTEUR, AVEC SON EX-LIBRIS AU RECTO DE LA PREMIÈRE GARDE. New York, B. W. Huebsch, 1918. In-12 (177 x 120 mm) de (24) ff., le premier et le dernier blancs ; toile brune à la Bradel, titre or en haut du premier plat, non rogné, tête dorée (reliure de l'éditeur). Chamber Music, publié originellement à Londres par Elkin Mathews en 1909, est le premier recueil de vers composés par Joyce (il faut mettre à part le rarissime poème satirique The Holy Office, publication éphémère datant de 1905). Cette collection de 34 poèmes de jeunesse, admirés dès leur parution par Ezra Pound et William Butler Yeats, n'a cessé d'inspirer les musiciens, Samuel Barber et Luciano Berio notamment. Le premier feuillet après le titre porte, au recto, cette note de l'éditeur : « This is the only American edition of Chamber Music that is authorized by Mr. Joyce. » Bien qu'on ne la rencontre que rarement, cette marque d'appartenance est connue des joyciens. Il s'agit d'un cachet à l'encre grise de forme circulaire (hauteur 30 mm) enserrant les initiales de l'auteur (hauteur 8 mm). Elle se trouve notamment sur quelques volumes ayant appartenu à Joyce, conservés dans la Joyce Library (Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas). « Avant de quitter Paris en mars 1939, Joyce distribua une grande partie de ses propres livres à ses amis et aux Hôpitaux de Paris (près de deux mille ouvrages selon le témoignage de Maria Jolas). Le reste, manuscrits, tableaux et souvenirs familiaux, restait dans son appartement 34 rue des Vignes. Le propriétaire, ne pouv … [Click Below for Full Description]
