        J'AI TUÉ: PROSE PAR MONSIEUR BLAISE CENDRARS ET 5 DESSINS DE MONSIEUR FERNAND LEGER

      (LEGER, FERNAND). Cendrars, Blaise & Fernand Leger. J'AI TUÉ: PROSE PAR MONSIEUR BLAISE CENDRARS ET 5 DESSINS DE MONSIEUR FERNAND LEGER. Paris: La Belle Edition, 1918. First Edition 1/353. Small 4to. Illustrated Wrappers. Livre D'Artiste. Fine./No Jacket - As Issued.. 44pp, 6 color, 7 duotone and 5 b&w illustrations. Text in French. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Published on November 8th, 1918 to coincide with the Armistice of World War I, "J'ai Tué" - which translates to "I Killed" - is a striking collaborative work that features Blais Cendrars' brief but powerful prose describing his hand-to-hand combat to the death with an enemy soldier paired with five monochrome woodcuts by Fernand Leger. Born Frederic Louis Sauser in Neuchatel, Switzerland, he became a naturalized French citizen, adopted the nom de plume Blaise Cendrars, and lost his right arm on The Western Front in 1916. Returning to Paris, he subsequently achieved great acclaim as a poet, memoirist, and art critic. "J'ai Tué" represents Leger's first Livre D'Artiste, and the only one illustrated in the Cubist style. A bright, well-preserved example with strong colors of the exceedingly uncommon 1918 La Belle Edition first printing (cited on page 299 of Lawrence Saphire's "Fernand Leger: The Complete Graphic Work") from the standard edition of three hundred NUMBERED (118/327) copies on "papier a la forme" at the Paris presses of Francois Bernouard showing a bit of minor wear and handling along with a short closed tear to the foredge of the front cover.

        MESOPOTAMIAN DEMOBILIZATION ORDER No. UMPTEEN [caption title]

      Poona [India]: Loyal Press, 1918. Old fold lines; light soiling and wear. Very good. Broadside poem printed in Poona, India around the end of the First World War. The Mesopotamian campaign was fought in Iraq, primarily by British and Indian troops against the Turkish empire. The British had a vested interest in the oil of the region and were set on protecting refineries, etc. The poem specifically mentions the Battle of Kut, to that time the scene of the worst British defeat in the entire history of the British Army. The poem was clearly written by a survivor of the campaign, if not that particular battle. It is possible that the poem is also a nod to Kipling's 1917 poem, "Mesopotamia," which also commemorated the bloody fight in that region. The poem, which is headed with the line, "To be carried in the hand by every soldier on arrival in England from Mesopotamia," describes the madness and malady borne by soldiers upon return from the misery of that campaign. A section of the poem reads: "If I should do things that seem senseless to you, / You'll find there's a method in all this I do. / I'm a marvel at catching Flies Fever and Flu. / They teach it in Mesopotamia. ...And if in the strand I'm found charging a bus. / Or otherwise making a damnable fuss. / If I'm squashed or smashed up don't stand by & cuss. / A mad man from Mesopotamia. ...Take me up tenderly treat me with care. / I'm one of a crowd England sent over there. / To line in a desert for years trying to scare. / Some Turks out of Mesopotamia. ...And if when I die I'm sent for a spell / To some place where stained souls are made clean and well, / Pray to Peter in mercy to send me to Hell, / But not back to Mesopotamia." Priced "One Anna." Not located in OCLC. A scarce memento, commemorating the horror and madness of the Middle Eastern theatre of the Great War.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Vienna, 5 October 1918 - 2 pages, 4to. In violet ink, filing holes, verso of second page annotated in pencil "Egon Schieles Briefe an Papa" and with a draft of a letter in a later, unidentified hand. Printed letterhead. Schiele writes to his friend the painter Anton Kolig in Carinthia less than a mongh before his death. One of Schiele’s last letters, not published in Nebehay, who does however refer to Kolig’s reply, written on 8 October (see Nebehay, no. 1742).Schiele here expresses his appreciation of the drawing which Kolig had sent him, which he wants to reproduce and sell himself if need be. He hopes that Kolig has received his telegram regarding the exhibition of his nude at Lanyi's in Klagenfurt, and states that he is also sending a copy of his reply to Dr Schneider, which he asks Kolig to sign and return as soon as possible. His view is that they must decline Dr Schneider's request as they have too much else inprospect.He informs his friend that things are going well with the Hagenbund (a group of artists who were not part of the exclusive Secession group) and that there is talk of setting up an independent group called the Sonderbund (this plan never came to fruition because of Schiele's death). He also tells Kolig that the Wiesbaden exhibition will not be going ahead at present because of the political situation and suggests that they approach the Secession instead with some portraits.

        THE INNOCENCE OF FATHER BROWN

      The Macaulay Company, [ca1918]., 1918. First U. S.edition thus.This edition is preceded in the U. S. by the 1911 edition published by John Lane. Red cloth in fine condition with titles stamped in black ink on the front cover and spine, in lightly rubbed dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends and corners and a few shallow nicks to the top edge of the rear panel, one of which is mended with a small piece of cellophane tape on the verso. First appearance of Father Brown. Queen's Quorum 47 says, "The miracle-book of 1911 introduced Father Brown to an eternally grateful public. The position of Father Brown has been expressed pertinently by Barnaby Ross who wrote, 'If there is one character in detective fiction who possesses the innocence and wisdom to sit beside the immortal Holmes, it is that apotheosis of incredulity, Father Brown.' You will find in this book all the wondrous qualities of Chesterton's genius: his extraordinary cleverness of plot, his unique style, and the brilliant use of paradox both in language and in the counterplay of the supernatural and the natural. In a letter to a famous aficionado we once wrote that Father Brown is 'one of the three greatest detective characters ever invented." 1001 Midnights say, "A cornerstone volume, .... can lay claim to greatness on two counts: It introduced the priest detective whose adventures are still popular three-quarters of a century later, and it contains more classic short stories than almost any other mystery collection before or since." An important book.

        MY ANTONIA

      1918 - [a handsome copy] With Illustrations by W. T. Benda. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1918. Original brown cloth lettered in light orange. First Edition, first printing (with the date on the FRONT of the title leaf), first state (with the illustrations on coated paper, rather than on text paper). This was Cather's second great novel of immigrant life on the Nebraska frontier, following O PIONEERS! of 1913. It tells of a Bohemian immigrant girl's life there, and of the pioneer strength that carries her through numerous adversities. Cather took a major role in the production of this book, choosing the illustrator and negotiating with Houghton Mifflin regarding many aspects of the book (especially the advertising budget, which HMC would not increase above $300.00!). She was particularly upset when she learned that HMC had ordered the illustrations printed on coated plate paper; she insisted that they be on regular text paper (though individually inserted), so some of the 3,000 copies of the first printing are in that later state (but not this one).~This is an attractive copy, just about fine (a hint of rubbing at the corners, a very short tear in the front free endpaper). Since this was a modestly-produced wartime book, we seldom see copies approaching this condition anymore. Crane A9a.1. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        THE SCARECROW AND OTHER STORIES.

      New York: E. P. Dutton & Company,. [1918]. original blue cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge stained gray.. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, gold stamping on. spine panel dull, a very good copy. An uncommon book. (#149509). First edition. A dozen stories of the weird and supernatural. Named one of the Ten Best American Books [of short stories] by Edward J. O'Brien in his Yearbook of the American Short Story for 1918. "These stories by Miss Wormser are the most interesting short story discovery of the year. They are subtle studies in unfamiliar regions of the spirit, and their vivid imaginative quality is not unlike that of Algernon Blackwood, though Miss Wormser's style is somewhat more self-conscious. I believe that this volume heralds a remarkable future." - O'Brien, The Best Short Stories of 1918, p. 362. Sadly, apart from a privately printed pamphlet (ABRAHAM GOODE, 1924), Wormser seems to have published nothing else. Bleiler (1978), p. 212. Reginald 15623. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 W-893.

Very good condition. Inscribed by Bulmer Hobson to his friend Eimar Ultan O'Duffy: "Eimear O'Duffy from his friend Bulmer Hobson". A remarkable association - very rare ! John Bulmer Hobson (14 January 1883 ?- 8 August 1969) was a leading member of the Irish Volunteers and the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB) before the Easter Rising in 1916. Though he was a member of the IRB which had planned the Rising, he opposed its being carried out, and attempted to prevent it. He swore Patrick Pearse into the IRB in late 1913. [Wikipedia] Eimar Ultan O'Duffy (29 September 1893 ?- 21 March 1935) was born in Dublin and educated at Stonyhurst College in Lancashire and at University College Dublin. He and Bulmer Hobson caused disaster to the plans for thd 1916 Easter Rising when they told Eoin MacNeill that the Rising was planned for the next week; MacNeill, nominal head of the Irish Volunteers, reacted by sending messengers around the country to call off the manoeuvres which were the cover for the Rising, and advertising in newspapers to cancel them. O'Duffy and Hobson went to the North. [Wikipedia]

        Contest Friars VS. Lambs For United War Work Campaign

      New York: Carey Show Print. Poster. Page measures 85 1/2" x 40". This large scale World War I poster features patriotic red, white, and blue fonts to underscore its message. The Friars and the Lambs, two organizations operating at the time of the War (and still today), participated in fundraising contests for the United War Work Campaign or UWWR. That 1918 campaign was charged with raising $170,000,000 to help demobilize the army and maintain morale in the final few years of the war. The campaign was a success, and was at the time recognized as the largest fundraising event in history. This poster is a wonderful vestige that illustrates the willingness of all different organizations to demonstrate their devotion to the nation's troops. It is in very good condition, and is creased at the folds as issued. Scarce.

        [Photo Album]: Section 520 U.S. Army Ambulance Service Served in the World War. Saw Active Service in Italy, France, Belgium, Luxumberg[sic], Germany

      1918-1919. Oblong octavo. Cord-tied flexible cloth boards with "Photographs" stamped in blind on front board. A total of 292 gelatin silver images with 277 mounted between four and nine to a page, plus 15 loose prints, all measuring between 2.5" x 2" and 7" x 5". Most images are well-captioned in white album ink. First leaf is detached, modest wear, some fading to some images, very good or better. Newspaper clipping laid in about the experiences of Charles D. Hallman of Allentown, Pennsylvania in the Ambulance Service, that extensively quotes from his letters to his parents about his unit's journey by road in their ambulances across the Alps from Italy into France.The album commences with a group photo of the unit at Fort Dix in New Jersey, with the names of the each man in the unit noted. After a few images of training camp (in gas masks, in tents, being inoculated, etc.), a parade, a shipboard boxing match, the Rock of Gibraltar, and the coast of Spain, the location swiftly shifts to Camp "Lido" in Genova, Italy with many well-captioned images of the beach, the city, ambulances, and the camp. There are many photos of various members of the unit posing and well-identified, of ships and submarines, of the English convalescent camp, and several of their journey over the Alps. Once they reach France, mostly near the Meuse River and Argonne Forest, the scenes become more military: posing in shell holes, ambulances and planes destroyed by German fire, landscapes decimated by artillery, German bombs exploding, airplanes on patrol over the hospital, observations balloons, cemeteries, captured guns and pillboxes, barbed wire, and no-man's land.A splendid album concentrated almost exclusively on the experiences of a soldier in the Ambulance Service. .

        L'Amour et la Folie. 12 improvisierte Radierungen über erotische Themen.

      Ohne Ort und Verlag [d.i. Berlin, A. Hoennicke], Privatdruck, 1918. - Quer-Folio (40 x 30 cm). |12 Orig.-Radierungen inkl. Titelblatt| (von 5x5 bis 18x18 cm) auf Bütten (25x30 xm), montiert auf größeren Tafeln. In einer marmorierten Kartonmappe (sign. Bruno Scheer) mit montierter erotischer Lithographie mit Titel und Kollophon. |Einzige Ausgabe| dieses Privatdrucks für Freunde des Künstler in einer |einmaligen Auflage von 20 eigenhändig numerierten Exemplaren|; die Platten wurden vernichtet. Jedes Blatt von |Fingesten signiert| und einige auch von ihm eigenhändig betitelt. Fingesten schuf nur wenige erotische Mappenwerke, die alle von grösster Seltenheit sind. Das Mappenwerk "L'amour et la folie" variiert in phantasievollen Improvisationen das Thema Liebe in seinen unterschiedlichsten und für Fingesten typischen Aspekten: vom kindlich Verspielten über das Skurrile und Ausgefallene bis zur erotischen Mordlust. Innendeckel mit montierter Lithographie (8x7,5 cm) ähnlich einem Exlibris, das sowohl Fingestens Name wie auch den des Verlegers Alf Hoennicke trägt. Es handelt sich offensichtlich um sein Exemplar. Mappe und Kanten stärker berieben, Kapitale mit kleinen Einrissen. Titellitho gebräunt. Flügel fehlen. Trägertafeln teils gedunkelt, leichter fingerfleckig, teils kleine Einrisse am Rand. Die Radierungen in gutem Zustand. Hayn-Got. IX, 165. Nechwatal S. 97. Backe, Hoennicke-Bibliographie 20. Exlibris nicht bei Deeken. ------------------------ Oblong folio (29 x 39 cm). Twelve original etchings (sizes vary considerably, from 18 x 18 cm to 5 x 5 cm, but are printed on uniform 25 x 31 cm sheets, with each sheet then tipped to a larger sheet), the whole laid loose into a vellum-backed marbled board folder, with printed pictorial label (14.5 x 14cm) mounted on upper board. Boards edgeworn, vellum darkened, with small chip at crown of spine, a few of the mounting sheets have small nicks at the edges, but the etchings are in fine state. One of twenty copies of this rare portfolio of erotically charged etchings by Fingesten, with each etching signed and some titled in pencil in the margin by the artist, and with the first etching, which incorporates the title, numbered in the margin as well. According to the caption on the title label of the portfolio, the etched plates were destroyed after this edition was printed. A pictorial label (8 x 7.5 cm) resembling a bookplate, bearing both Fingesten's name and that of publisher Alf. Hoennicke, appears in the corner of the front pastedown of the portfolio, suggesting that either this was Hoennicke's copy, or that he may have had a hand in the genesis of this "private" edition. Fingesten produced several portfolios of etchings and/or lithographs such as this example, all in small editions, and all are scarce to rare. -------------------------------- |Traduction française sur demande|.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1918 - 1918 Original Hardback Wisden Very Good Condition 9/10

      1918. Hi, Here we have a very rare 1918 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. This is a fabulous book, the only downside and this is being very picky is a bookplate has been removed from the front left page. You probably wouldn't notice but I have to point it out. The front board is superb, hardly a mark and bright gilt,the spine cloth is excellent with bright gilt, it really is a top book. Super rear board too. Excellent, original hinges, and very clean inside just an ex owners name to the front right pastedown. If being picky there is a slight bobbling to front board cloth and inside a sort of corrigated iron appearance for a couple of pages. A wisden to own and brag about. Average 1918s are appearing on line at 5k , no need to pay that much.

        MY ANTONIA

      1918. [a handsome copy] With Illustrations by W. T. Benda. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1918. Original brown cloth lettered in light orange. First Edition, first printing (with the date on the FRONT of the title leaf), first state (with the illustrations on coated paper, rather than on text paper). This was Cather's second great novel of immigrant life on the Nebraska frontier, following O PIONEERS! of 1913. It tells of a Bohemian immigrant girl's life there, and of the pioneer strength that carries her through numerous adversities. Cather took a major role in the production of this book, choosing the illustrator and negotiating with Houghton Mifflin regarding many aspects of the book (especially the advertising budget, which HMC would not increase above $300.00!). She was particularly upset when she learned that HMC had ordered the illustrations printed on coated plate paper; she insisted that they be on regular text paper (though individually inserted), so some of the 3,000 copies of the first printing are in that later state (but not this one).~This is an attractive copy, fine except for the slightest of soil near the fore-edge of the front cover. Since this was a modestly-produced wartime book, we seldom see copies approaching this condition anymore. Crane A9a.1.
