        Manuscript - Unpublished Travel Journal of a German Merchant - WWI - Hankou, China Along the Tibetan Plateau - Text in German

      China, 1918. Hankou, 1918. Unpublished travel manuscript by a German merchant who travelled from Hankou as far as Xining on the Tibetan plateau during the First World War, describing in fine detail his expedition and observations in China in 1916. Qto. 286 pages in typescript, with manuscript annotations throughout. Half morocco over green cloth, titled in gilt to front, signed in the original by the author to front pastedown. All text is in German. Volume measures approximately 21 x 33 cm. Indication of moisture to boards, otherwise in very good and original condition, internally clean and bright. "Als deutscher Kaufmann bis an Tibets Grenze." [A German Merchant to the Borders of Tibet]. An adventurous expedition into Northwest China and approaching Tibet's frontier regions unfolds with firsthand observations on life and lore, on religion, economy, trade, foreign influence in China, and power plays in the late stages of "The Great Game" for Central Asia. Russia and England are frequently mentioned. The writer is a German merchant who is familiar with the country from his previous travels, and who has a reasonable understanding of Chinese language and custom, all of the latter factors surely proving beneficial during this time of complex Treaty-Port laws and short-term passports. Replete with detailed descriptions, entertaining encounters and keen economic evaluations, a few of the many topics include First World War hostilities, Russian agents conspiring with Chinese Turkomen, the important Lamasary 'Kumbum,' trades, finance, oil, tobacco, cotton, opium, Chinese military and police, and the Treaty Port of Tientsin, Sven Hedin's expeditions, ancient empires and their remaining monuments, and a massacre involving cannibalism. Splendid accounts of Tibetan culture in the early part of the century render a welcome reprieve from Western perspective and business-centered travel, including descriptions of chanting lamas, gilded monuments, butter and pigment offering sculptures, and a gold rooftop which survived early Mongol invasions and late nineteenth century Imperial expansion. Little is known of the author apart from what he offers in his work, which, by its format and manuscript annotations, appears to have been intended for publication, but appears to never have been published. The dedication suggests that he was an older man when this journey was made; his vast experience and maturity comes through in the text. His conclusion reveals intent to document yet more travels, but further research is warranted as to whether he did so, or whether the present journal was his last. During the Treaty Port era foreigners arriving in China needed a passport, and passed through Chinese landing procedures. They then also required a Chinese-issued passport to travel more than 30 miles from any recognised open port, but this was an ambiguous formality based on various nationally and locally negotiated treaties, which gave the traveller extraterritorial rights, placing them under the jurisdiction of British authorities in China rather than Chinese law. This also granted them specific zones of residence in a number of Chinese cities. The British state went to war three times to secure these rights, or to protect or extend them. Extraterritoriality was the key provision of the 1842 Treaty of Nanjing, which concluded the First Anglo-Chinese or Opium War. With a team of consular officials, the British claimed their new rights, closely followed by merchant traders and missionaries who had been waiting for their opportunity to trade in China. The Author's dedication reads: "Das Buch widme ich dem deutscher Kaufmann in China und der neuen nach Ostasien kommenden Kaufmanns-generation. Hankow, Mai 1918. [I dedicate this book to the German businessman in China and the new generation of merchants coming to East Asia. Hankou, May 1918.]" His expedition begins by rail at Hankow [Hankou], heading for Suchow [Suzhou], then Changchow [Zhangzhou], Kaifengfu [Kaifeng], Henanfu [Luoyang], and Ko Jintang [Jintang in Gaochun, Jiangsu]. "Im karren bis Tungkwan" [In carts to Tungkwan] is the heading of a fascinating part of the journey, travelling by mule-drawn cart to Tongguan County, which is located in Shaanxi and known famously for its historical pass. (In the 19th and early 20th century, it was commonly known as Tungkwan). He provides a detailed 10 page description of the journey through this spectacular mountain region, including a narrow entrance to a mine, the breathtaking gorge and pass, also remarking on ancient civilizations such as the Han Dynasty and their use of hydropower, the ancient Guan people, on antiquities, and architecture. He also discusses the region's connections to both Kansu [Gansu] and Turkistan. From Tungkwan he continues to Sianfu, still in Shaanxi where he stays at an inn, describes an encounter with Chinese police officers, and is deciphering propaganda it seems. On page 137 we find mention of Christian inscriptions at a chapel and the first German Jesuit in China Johann Adam Schall von Bell, an astronomer and missionary who spent most of his life in China and became an adviser to the Shunzhi Emperor of the Qing dynasty. This section of the volume examines Catholic missionaries, Islamic institutions, and ancient Emperors. His next stop in Gansu was Pingliang, a region well known for the nearby Kongtong Mountains, which are sacred to Taoists, and where he had a rendezvous with a Swedish missionary David Tornvall. The author discusses the Dungan Revolt or Hui Minorities War of 1862-1877, which was in essence an ethnic war although it was perpetuated by pricing dispute of bamboo poles. In this region he assesses the potential of increasing export trade with the development of new roads, "export geschaeft ist much relativ klein, wenn ein den ziemlich grossen Transitverkehr abzieht hier treffen sich einige bedeutende strassen". Along this vein he describes communications between Shanghai firms, Hankow, Tsingtau, and Tientsin, records the current value of specific commodities such as sheep's wool including conveyance, and examines currency "kupfermenzen" (copper coins). Over another high mountain pass he traverses to reach Lanchowfu [Langzhou], which suffered great damage during the Dungan revolt and which in the 1920s and 1930s would become a center of Soviet influence in northwestern China. Here the German merchant finds a mixed population of Tibetan, Mongolians, Tungusic people, and Russian merchants. Astutely focused on all aspects of trade, he makes note of the many private banks and the Bank of China, the latter of which had apparently become very important and had expanded significantly in recent times. Here he describes military factories for making of uniforms and more. Near the Tibetan border, he spends some time in Sinning-fu [Xining], which is now in Qinghai province, but in the author's time was part of Gansu province, and anciently a commercial hub for some 2000 years along the Northern Silk Road on the Hexi Corridor caravan route to Tibet, mainly used by traders of timber, wool and salt in ancient times. In these pages he describes a meeting with a British Consul, whom he says is operating under the guise of a missionary. With the consul he seems to have discussed propaganda, the Chinese character, earlier German expeditions to Tibet, the consul's association with Sven Hedin whom he knew as a second lieutenant, relations between Tibet, China and Russia, as well as the circumstances surrounding the Dalai Lama XIII Thupten Gyatso who fled from Lhasa, Tibet, to escape Chinese troops, and went to British India. A thorough description of his visit to the Kumbum Monastery ensues. Also now called "Little Tower Temple," it is a gompa (Buddhist learning place) which was founded in 1583 in a narrow valley close to the village of Lusar in Amdo, now Qinghai, China. From Kumbum he returns to Langzhou where he learns of the death of Chinese emperor Yuan Shikai on 22 December 1915, "Eine andere Neuigkeit von Bedeutung war die nachricht von Tode Yuean-shi-kais." Excerpts from the manuscript: Page 1. "Wie fuer eine grosse expedition notwendig, mit viel Gepaeck und ausserdem mit vier Chinesen, trat ich am 16. April 1916 meine Reise von Hankow aus an. Die vier Chinesen, die vorzustellen ich nicht unterlassen darf, denn sie waren treue Helfer und gute Genossen in manchen unangenehmen Lagen..." [As necessary for a great expedition, I began my journey from Hankow on 16 April 1916, with a lot of supplies and also with four Chinese. The four Chinese I must not omit, as were faithful assistants and good comrades in some unpleasant situations...] Page 107. "Nach den vertraegen, die China mit den Auslaendern hat, muss jeder Europaeer den "Treatyport" verlaesst, einen Pass seines konsula mit sich fuehren, der von der chin Behoerde des betreffenden Platzes gegengezeichnet...." [According to the contracts that China has with the foreigners, every European who leaves a "Treaty Port" must carry with them a passport issued by the consul and countersigned by the authority of the Chinese Court....] "... schauplatz des des schauderhaftesten Massakers von 1200 mandschu wo frauen und kinder auf die schrecklichste Art misshandelt... Hier, wo noch vor kuerzerer zeit 8 Europaer ermordet und verwundet wurden und die bluehenden kinder der missionare auf das kanibalischste hingeschlachtet wurden..." [... scene of the most horrifying massacre of 1200 Manchu during which women and children were abused in the most terrible ways... Here, where 8 Europeans were killed and wounded in a short time and the young children of missionaries were slain by the canibals...] Page 124. "Fuer die Grossindustrie ist Sianfu kein guenstiger Platz" [To view the large industrial Sianfu is not a favorable place...] "Lanchowfu had auch seine Fabrik fuer militaerstoffe, die unter der mandschu regierung eingerichtet worden ist" [Lanchow has a military factory which was established by the Manchu government] Page 209. "Fuer den Chinesen in Lunchowfu, der Hauptstadt einer der abgelegensten Provinzen Chinas, 6 Tage von der tibetanischen Grenze entfernt, gab es nichts anderes grosses im fernen Ausland als den englischen Kaiser." [For the Chinese in Lunchowfu, the capital of one of the most remote provinces of China, 6 days from the Tibet border, there is nothing as large and foreign as the British Monarch.] "Unter den Laeden, die sich in der Naehe des Gouverneurs yamen befinden, gibt es auch Geschaefte, die europaeische Nahrungsmittel und Spirituosen verkaufen." [Among the shops, located close to the governor's yamen (residence or office), there are also shops that sell food european and spirits.] Page 223. "Russland, England und China hatten vor einigen Jahren einen vertrag gemacht, der niemanden ausser den Chinesen erlaubte, sich in Tibet aufzuhalten." [Russia, England and China had a few years ago made an agreement, stating that no one except the Chinese were allowed to reside in Tibet.] [At Sinning-fu (Xining), then part of Gansu]... largest city on the Tibetan Plateau. "Ihre Frauen sind alle sehr hübsch, haben grosse Fuesse und arbeiten wie die Maenner. Daneben gibt es naturlich Tibetaner, Mongolen, Mohammedaner, Lamas und die kulturchinesen aus dem Reiche." [Their wives are all very pretty, have big feet and work as men. There are also of course the Tibetans, Mongols, Muslims, llamas and the Chinese culture from the kingdom.] Page 252. "Grosse Importfirmen gibt es circa vier, die all ganz gute Geschaefte machen und ziemlich vermoegend zu scheinen sein." [There are about four big importers who generate very good business and seem to be quite wealthy.] Page 254. "Mr. Radley... Sven Hedin kannte er auch, doch war er auf ihn nicht gut zu sprechen. Wahrscheinlich beruht diese Abneigung auf gegenseitigkeit, denn swen hedin, der die Englaender besser kannte als Leutnant. Wie ich spaeter in Erfahrung brachte, ist Mr. Radley englischer konsularagent unter dem Maentelchen eines missionars... Er integriert mit alter englischer Fertigkeit mit den Tibetanern gegen China und die Russen und hatte auch 1910 den Daili lama auf seiner Durchreise nach Peking empfangen." [Mr. Radley... knew Sven Hedin well but did not speak to him. This antipathy was probably mutual as Sven Hedin knew the Englishman as a Lieutenant... I learned later that Mr. Radley is an English consular agent under the guise of a being missionary... ... with Old English skill, the Tibetans against China and the Russians... received the Daili lama on his way to Beijing in 1910.] Page 286. "Ich schliesse daher mit diesem kapital mein erstes Buch und werde die Erlebnisse der weiteren Reise in einem anderen schildern" [I conclude, therefore, this chapter of my first book, and in another I will describe the experiences of further travels.] End excerpts. "The Great Game" was the strategic economic and political rivalry and conflict between the British Empire and the Russian Empire for supremacy in Central Asia at the expense of Afghanistan, Persia and the Central Asian Khanates/Emirates. The classic Great Game period is generally regarded as running approximately from the Russo-Persian Treaty of 1813 to the Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907, in which nations like Emirate of Bukhara fell. A less intensive phase followed the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, causing some trouble with Persia and Afghanistan until the mid 1920's. Baron Richthofen called Honan Fu "the Gate to the North-Western Provinces and Central Asia," and he pointed out the importance of railway communication at such a spot. A railway is now under process of construction from Kaifeng Fu to Honan Fu, crossing the main Hankow-Pekin (Ching-han) line at Chengchow, thus bringing this "Gate to Central Asia" into immediate connection with the Yangtse valley on the one hand, and with Tientsin and the sea on the other. . Very Good.

        A rare document signed by rivals Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky only two days after the declaration of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic - ordering the appointment of a military official whom Stalin would purge in 1938

      Moscow, December 20, 1918. 8.5" x 8.5". "Typed Letter Signed, ""J. Stalin"" in Cyrillic, 1 page, 8.5"" x 8.5"", Moscow, December 20, 1918 to Trotsky ordering the replacement of a military commissar for the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic. Boldly endorsed ""Trotsky,"" over the body of the letter. Vertical creases, some light soiling and marginal chips not affecting text, overall very good.The letter reads, in full: ""To the Chairman of the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (Revvoyensovet) of the Republic Comrade Trotsky[:] All the members of the Lithuanian Soviet Government unanimously asked you to replace Military Commissar Kozhura (in Dvinsk) with their candidate, Comrade Rasikas. I accede to this request.""Although Soviet forces had yet to advance into Lithuania following the end of the First World War, Lenin had already declared the existence the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic on December 18, 1918. The Soviet republic was short lived as the Red Army only managed to occupy portions of the country before retreating in mid 1919. Lithuania remained independent until the Soviet invasion of 1940. The replacement official recommended by Stalin, Rapolas Rasikas (1887-1938), was a Lithuanian communist activist. At the close of the First World War he helped establish the Lithuanian Communist Party, then operating out of Moscow. After the Red Army moved into eastern Lithuania, Resikas served as military commissar. When the Soviets pulled out of Lithuania in 1919, Rasikas moved to Moscow where he worked in various capacities for the government, organizing covert operations within Lithuania to support the Communist Party in the 1920s. In the 1930s, he lectured on economics and also worked within the Moscow Institute of Transport Engineering. On October 10, 1938, he was arrested as part of Stalin's great purge, sentenced for 10 years in prison where he died nine days after his arrest. "

"In some of the pictures for this book Dulac continues with the Chinese style developed for Princess Badoura the year before. 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... And always there is the Oriental inspiration" (Hughey)."Mr. Dulac has provided pictures which preserve to a marvel the Persian feeling" (Times Literary Supplement, Dec.. 10, 1914)."It may have been his friendship with the celebrated connoisseurs, Ricketts and Shannon, that led Dulac to a renewed and closer acquaintance with those Oriental and Greek primitives, which he had already learned to love in his youth...Persian miniatures especially have fascinated him... the fantasies which Scheherazade wove... need a jeweled commentator, and Dulac alone possesses the necessary gifts" (Art critic, Martin Birnbaum, Introduction, Catalog of Dulac exhibition, Scott & Fowles Gallery, NY, December 1916).Hughey 35c.

      Zürich, Fritz Amberger, 1918 - 105 x 145 cm, 114 x 154 cm (gerahmt), Kleine Fehlstellen sauber geschlossen, Wasserrand unten rechts (ausserhalb des Holzschnittes) - insgesamt ein schönes und dekoratives Exemplar mit Patina. Auf BFK Rives Nicolas aufgezogen, «MDCCCCXVIII Jar gedruckt durch Fritz Amberger, vormalen David Bürkli». Diese Auflage ist die 6. der insgesamt 8 Auflagen von den Originalstöcken die im Staatsarchiv verwahrt sind. - Die Orignalüberschrift lautet: Der uralten wytbekannten Statt Zurych gestalt und gelaegenhait / wie sy zuo diser zyt in waesen / ufgerissen und in grund gelegt / durch Josen Murer / und durch Christoffel Froschaower / zuo Eeren dem Vatterland getruckt / Im M.D.LXXVI. Jar.Angeregt durch Ansichtspläne anderer Städte (Venedig, Strassburg, Augsburg, Basel etc.) wollte Jos Murer (1554-1631) seiner Vaterstadt ein Denkmal setzen. Da in seiner Glasmalerwerkstatt in dieser Zeit nur wenige Bestellungen eingingen, musste sich Murer, Vater von zwölf Kindern, etwas einfallen lassen. Ausgerüstet mit einer ?Mesz-Schybe? und Schrittmass vermass er das Gebiet innerhalb der Stadtmauern und übertrug es auf Leinwand. Danach schritt er die Gassen ab und zeichnete jedes Haus und jeden Baum aus der gleichen Richtung. So entstand auf Leinwand ein farbiges Gemälde der Stadt in der faszinierenden Vogelperspektive in der Grösse des späteren Holzschnittes, aber mit viel mehr Details. Im Zürcher Rat sass auch der Drucker Christoph Froschauer (1532-1585), der Neffe des Buchdruckers Christoph Froschauer, der das Potential dieses «Stadtplanes»erkannte. Falls es gelingen würde, ihn zu vervielfältigen, könnte man ihn in vielen Exemplaren verkaufen. Murer übertrug das Original auf dünnes Ölpapier. Darauf wurde es auf sechs Platten aus Birnbaumholz von je 45 x 45 cm seitenverkehrt "gerissen". Der Formschneider Ludwig Friyg begann in seiner Werkstatt an der Froschaugasse mit grosser Kunst und unsäglichen Mühen alle Teile, die im späteren Abdruck weiss werden sollten, wegzuschneiden. Kleinere Schriften wurden erst später auf separaten Holzstreifen eingefügt. 1576 wurde der Plan trotz militärischer Bedenken erstmals gedruckt. 20000 gr.

Wie alle Publikationen Pilars sehr selten! Die südslawische Frage und der Weltkrieg (Nebentitel: Übersichtliche Darstellung des Gesamtproblems) ist ein Buch des kroatischen Nationalökonoms, Soziologen und Historikers Dr. Ivo Pilar. Die Erstausgabe des Werks erfolgte 1918 in Wien unter dem Autorenpseudonym L.[eo] v.[on] Südland. Das Buch stellt die Geschichte der Kroaten, Serben und Bosniaken aus nationalkroatischer Sicht dar. Es enthält u.a. die Warnung vor einem Jugoslawien, da dieses nur zu einem Großserbien führen könne. Der Besitz des Buches war daher im Königreich Jugoslawien verboten. Die erste Ausgabe wurde angeblich größtenteils vom jugoslawischen Geheimdienst aufgekauft und vernichtet. Sie ist dadurch zu einer bibliographischen Rarität geworden. Erster Weltkrieg,

        Villa Bortolazzi all&#146;Acquaviva di Trento.

      1918 - Villa Bortolazzi è una delle splendide ville trentine, caratterizzata da un rapporto molto armonioso tra architetture esterne ed interne, che merita almeno una visita da parte di chi ama il bello. Non più abitata, prende il suo nome dalla famiglia che la edificò e che si era arricchita con la produzione e il commercio della seta, i Bortolazzi di origine veneta. Il capostipite Giuseppe, proveniente da Asolo, acquisì la cittadinanza trentina nel 1617 e divenne cavaliere del Sacro Romano Impero nel 1647. Il titolo comitale fu conferito alla famiglia nel 1702. Nel 1650 i Bortolazzi acquistarono l&#146;Acquaviva dai Borellini. Il toponimo è dovuto al fatto che in quel luogo sgorga da secoli "la nobil sorgente, o Scaturiggine dell&#146;Acqua viva". Formato: Acquaforte a colori di cm 41×31. Buono.

        THE SON OF TARZAN ...

      Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co.,. 1918. original green cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold.. A square, bright, clean, very good white paper copy in good four-. color pictorial dust jacket correctly priced $1.30 on the spine panel. (with wraparound illustration by J. Allen St. John) with wear and. chipping, mostly shallow, along top and bottom edges, mainly spine. ends and corner tips, some rubbing along spine and flap folds, and. abrasions to rear panel, the largest measuring 12x80 mm. Despite the. rather large combined print run, this is among the most difficult of. the McClurg editions to obtain in jacket. A decent example of a rare. jacket never touched by a paper conservationist. (#151473). First edition, later (probable fourth) printing with W. F. Hall imprint on verso of title leaf, dedication leaf present, and title page dated 1918, not 1917. By late June 1917, THE SON OF TARZAN, published in March 1917, had been reprinted twice. There were two printings of the McClurg edition with the title page dated 1918; this one with the Hall imprint probably preceded copies without the Hall imprint on the copyright page. The fourth book of the Tarzan series. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 318. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 117. Bleiler (1978), p. 35. Reginald 02311. Heins ST-3.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 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.
