        The Story of Little Black Sambo

      Philadelphia: Henry Altemus, 1918. Decorative Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. A VERY EARLY EDITION IN ITS ORIGINAL PICTORIAL DUSTJACKET(!!). Published by Henry Altemus of Philadelphia as part of its "Wee Books for Wee Folks" series, the publication date can be pinned down conclusively between 1918-1921 but not more specifically than that. Dustwrappers earlier than this on editions of "Little Black Sambo" rarely appear. As it stands, this is a wonderful and colorful jacket design. The front panel of the dustjacket--which mirrors the cover of the book itself-- has a hand-colored image of "Sambo" under an umbrella with a black and white jungle relief behind him. The back panel lists other titles by Altemus in the "Wee Books for Wee Folks" series. Both the book and the jacket have held up nicely, given their age. A solid VG copy in bright boards and in a VG/VG- dustjacket with light chipping along the top and bottom edges of the covers and light chipping at the spine extremities. One dime-sized chip as well to the top edge of the front panel, affecting the word "Little" in the title. The dustjacket, though, fragile as it is, is 90-95% intact. Light foxing as well to endpapers and small former owner inscription to flyleaf. All plates and pages of text have held up nicely and are clean and bright. 64mo, 63 pgs. A truly scarce item in its original dustjacket.

        Autograph letter signed, and with original woodcut.

      Zehlendorf-Mitte (Berlin), 24. XII. 1918.. 4to. ¾ pp.. Feininger writes to Paul van Ostayen (1896-1926), Flemish avant-garde poet related to the Dada and Expressionist movements, who influenced modern literature in Belgium and the Netherlands. Towards the end of the First World War van Ostayen had gone to Berlin for political reasons, stayed for three years and befriended Feininger and other artists and literary figures. Feininger invites van Ostayen to join him and his wife on Boxing Day. "The five pictures have not arrived yet, but we mustn't wait for them in offer to be able to welcome you - Because of the pitiful state of transportation it is very uncertain now when they will arrive. We wish you a non too dreary Christmas [...] in the strange Big City! Only a very easy spirit would talk of 'Merry' now [...]" (transl. from the German original). - An original woodcut showing a church or cathedral in the upper left corner on this golden yellow sheet of onion skin paper. The woodcut is also suggestive of the Bauhaus 1919 Manifesto cover. The paper is fragile and tattered along right and left edges not affecting text. - In the year prior to this letter of 1918, Feininger had his first solo exhibit at Sturm Gallery in Berlin. He was Walter Gropius' first faculty appointment at the Bauhaus in Germany which Gropius founded in 1919. Feininger became the master artist in charge of the printmaking workshop.

        A Short History of The Irish Volunteers. [Signed and Inscribed Association copy]. With a Preface by Eoin MacNeill.

      Dublin, The Candle Press, 1918.. First and only edition. Volume 1 (all that was ever published). 12.5 cm x 18 cm. IX, 205 pages. Original Hardcover in Mylar. 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]

        Poetenleben.

      Frauenfeld: Huber, 1918.. 183, [5] S., mit einer Deckelvignette nach einer lithographierten farbigen Zeichnung von Karl Walser. Or.br., 8°. Wilpert/Gühring2, 12, - Badorrek-Hoguth (für Karl Walser) B87. Beigelegt ist der Vorderteil der sehr seltenen Bauchbinde mit einem Werbetext des Verlags: "Das anmutigste und geschlossenste der Walserschen Prosabücher!"; darunter ein 14zeiliger Text von Max Brod über Robert Walser. Bisher habe es "Zwei-Schichten Dichter", etwa Dickens, gegeben, und natürlich auch "einflächige". Noch nicht gegeben habe es bisher "Drei-Schichter", aber Walser - "da haben wir ihn". Obenauf, in der ersten Schicht sei Walser "naiv, fast ungeschickt, schlicht, geradeaus". In der zweiten Schicht spüre man die Ironie, das Raffinement, den Feinfühligen. Und unter der der tiefen zweiten Schicht sei noch eine tiefere dritte, "ein Grund, und der ist wirklich naiv, kräftig und schweizerisch-deutsch". Das Blatt ist hellgrün und misst 12x9 cm (bxh),es ist damit nur weniger Millimeter schmäler als der Buchdeckel. Walser war davon sehr angetan, in einem Brief an seinen Verleger schreibt er: "Der Auszug von Max Brod auf dem grünen Begleitzettel ist sehr gut gewählt" (Salathe, "Man muss nicht hinter alle Geheimnisse kommen wollen", Frauenfeld, 2013), S. 159, einer Dokumentation zum Briefwechsel von Karl und Robert Walser mit ihrem Verleger. Einband etwas berieben, der vordere Deckel wegen einiger kleiner Randläsuren sorgfältig doubliert, beim Rückendeckel kleinere Druckstellen am Rand unterlegt. Schnitt etwas angestaubt. Nicht beschnitten..

Fine condition.In full, ""Dear Mama: I had a most interesting evening last week. I went out in No-mans land over to the Bard wire but nothing happened the Bard whistled at us and we whistled back then having seen what we wanted we came home. It was not at all thrilling we singly had a job to do and did it. On the way back we came through a ruined village it looked in the moonlight like a skeleton of a cow in Texas we went from one house to another by holes in the wall feeling our way by holding to a wire. I picked some dasies in the bard wire which I will send to you & B [Beatrice, his wife]. Should you hear of anything in my line of work in the papers in the next month or so it will be me who did the stint. But things are too uncertain to be sure you will hear. I am very well and having a fine time I must stop now I love you all. George.""Just 11 days after Patton write this letter to his mother, he led the 1st Tank Brigade into Battle at St. Mihiel, September 12-15, 1918, the first major engagement of American troops in World War I. On the afternoon of September 12, 1918, in the midst of a battle between the American Expeditionary Force and the German Army, 32-year-old Lieutenant Colonel Patton first met 38-year-old Brigadier General Douglas MacArthur as tanks and infantry maneuvered forward to the French town of Essey. Patton's brigade was then moved to support the U.S. I Corps in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. On the morning of September 26, 1918, he personally led a troop of tanks through thick fog as they advanced into German lines. Patton was wounded in the left thigh while leading six men and a tank in an attack on German machine guns . While recuperating from his wound, on October 17, 1918, Patton was promoted to Colonel in the Tank Corps of the U.S. National Army."

        Lettow-Mappe: Kwaheri Askari/Auf Wiedersehen Askari

      Munich: Dr. C. Wolf & Sohn,, 1918. Zehn Steinzeichnungen von Walter von Ruckteschell, Dachau bei München, mit einem Vorwort von General von Lettow-Vorbeck. Folio (482 × 385 mm). Grey light card wraps containing 10 lithographs from Ruckteschell's drawings. Title page/contents leaf; foreword in facsimile holograph; and 10 Lithographs. A little rubbed, some separation at head and tail of spine of the wraps, light soiling of the title page, light toning overall, very good. First and only edition. Extremely uncommon, a single copy, at the Boston Atheneum, on OCLC. Dedicated "in gratitude to the memory of our black colleagues in German East Africa, 1914-1918", this portfolio contains a series of superbly sensitive but unsentimental portraits of African troops, auxiliaries, and their wives; "Seven of the portraits present here were published in Lettow-Vorbeck's Meine Errinerungen aus Ostafrika which identifies Hamiss and Hassan Eilal Mohamed as Askaris, Mustapha as 'signalschüler', and Manangoma as a bearer … the reproduction here is far superior and allows the quality of the drawings to stand out" (Winterton). Ruckteschell travelled out to German East in 1913 having been commissioned to design the interior of a new liner based on themes from the colony, but with the outbreak of the war he joined the Schutztruppe, becoming von Lettow-Vorbeck's aide-de-camp, and serving for the duration. Ruckteschell's efforts to ensure the commemoration of the African contribution to the campaign were considerable, as well as being the illustrator, he was Lettow-Vorbeck's "ghost-writer" on Heia Safari!; and he designed the huge "neotraditionalist expressionist" terracotta reliefs which formed the Schutztruppenehrenmal [Cenotaph of the Colonial Army] installed in 1939 at the opening of Lettow-Vorbeck Barracks in Hamburg, and now form the centrepiece of the controversially "revisionist" Tanzania Park (see Steinmetz, "A Monument under Lock and Key: Seeking Germany's Colonial Lieux de Mémoire", in The Germanic Review, 84, 3, 2009). A more remarkable - and almost serendipitous - legacy still, was his influence upon the visual style of the Harlem Renaissance through Alain Locke's anthology The New Negro, as revealed by Prof. Peter Schneck ("The New Negro from Germany", in American Art, 22, 3, 2008, see also his "Tuesday Night Talk" at the Pacific School of Religion, "Brown Madonnas, Red Mothers, and the 'New Negro' from Germany" ). An attractive and highly desirable piece.

        Manuscript - WWI American Red Cross - Racism Letter Against African American Nurse

      Honolulu, 1918. Frances Reed Elliot (1892-1965) was the first African American accepted into the American Red Cross Nursing Service, on July 2, 1918, only 16 weeks before this condescending letter. She was born in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her mother was a plantation heiress and her father an African American farm worker. When she was only five, her mother died. Shortly thereafter, her father left the area. As a result she was orphaned, and spent her early life in foster homes. After graduating from Knoxville College, she taught history for a few short years, then decided to pursue a career in nursing. She entered a nursing program at Knoxville College, but health issues forced her to withdraw. She later entered the Freedmen's Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1913. Her first job was as a private-duty nurse. Later, she worked at Provident Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, and completed additional courses at Columbia University. She applied to work for James Gavin Field Jr., formerly a surgeon in the U.S. Navy medical corps, and at the time having his own practice in Denver. She was denied this opportunity. Initially refused for American Red Cross service as well, on the basis of race, after writing a letter directly to corporate headquarters, Elliot finally succeeded in joining the organization in 1918. She wore Red Cross nursing pin 1-A, with the A signifying that its holder was African American. Freedmen's Hospital served the black community in the District of Columbia for more than a century, having been established in 1862 to cater for the medical needs of the thousands of African Americans who came to Washington, DC, during the Civil War, seeking their freedom. The first hospital of its kind to provide medical treatment for former slaves, it later became the major hospital for the area's African-American community. Since the Civil War, 30,000 African-American teachers had been trained and put to work in the South. The majority of blacks had become literate. However, while they persevered against long-standing racial prejudices to experience the equality and freedom touted by the American Constitution, they were continuously faced with oppression, lynching, random attacks, and continued segregation. In 1904 Orlando, Florida hires its first black postman. In 1908 Alpha Kappa Alpha - At Howard University, African-American college women found the first college sorority for African-American women. In 1910 The NAACP begins publishing 'The Crisis,' the official magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, designed "to set forth those facts and arguments which show the danger of race prejudice, particularly as manifested today toward colored people." In 1914 Newly elected president Woodrow Wilson orders physical re-segregation of federal workplaces and employment after nearly 50 years of integrated facilities. In 1916 Los Angeles hires the country's first black female police officer. Also in this year, The Great Migration begins and lasts until 1940. Approximately one and a half million African-Americans move from the Southern United States to the North and Midwest. The East St. Louis Riot took place in May-June 1917, and on August 23rd the Houston Riot. In 1918 Orlando's first black doctor opens practice. And, Miss Frances Reed Elliot became the first African American accepted into the American Red Cross Nursing Service. This highly tumultuous era continued for some time, and heightened activity of the most notorious Ku Klux Klan era lasted until 1924. The Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) was formed in 1882. Its primary function was to gather information on foreign navies with the goal of modernizing the American navy. But during World War I and the years after, the ONI also entered into the world of domestic security, a role solidified by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.. Very Good.

        "Arab Types". Album of Arabian portrait photographs.

      Syria, c. 1918.. 8vo. 15 black and white photographs captioned in white, plus one repeat in a smaller print. Original board album, acquired from "M. Arthur, Beyrouth". Paper label to upper cover: "Arab Types. Syria".. Small but fascinating collection of portrait photographs showing Arabian nobles as well as commoners, all captioned and the subject often identified by name and tribe. The photos, many of which are executed as highly expressive profile studies, were taken and assembled by Lt. Col. Walter Francis Stirling (1880-1958), Chief of Staff to T. E. Lawrence. While the present photographs were taken during his time with Lawrence, whom Stirling revered, it is not his British comrades but rather the striking features of the sheikhs and bedouins on which this collection is focused. Among the images are "Sheik Gawaileh of Nejd, one of Lawrence's Bodyguard", and "Sheikh Hamondi, Friend of Lawrence"; others are more ominously identified as "Yezidi Shepherd, Devil worshipper" or "Bad type of Hadadiyim Tribesman". Of many noble tribesmen here depicted, such as Fauraz ibn Sha'laan, Emir of the Ruwalla, or Sheikh Daham al-Hadi, Paramount Sheikh of the Shammar tribe, these probably constitute the only photographic record. - Sterling was trained at Sandhurst and served in the Transvaal operation during the Boer War before being seconded to the Egyptian Army in 1906. He spent five years patrolling with an Arab battalion on the Eritrean and Abyssinian borders. Throughout WWI he served at Gallipoli and the Palastinian campaign until he was appointed chief staff officer to Lawrence of Arabia, who called him "Stirling the imperturbable". In 1937, Stirling would reflect on his famous wartime comrade: "From then [early 1918] throughout the final phase of the Arab revolt on till the capture of Damascus, I worked, travelled, and fought alongside Lawrence [...] We sensed that we were serving with a man immeasurably our superior [...] In my considered opinion, Lawrence was the greatest genius whom England has produced in the last two centuries [...] If ever a genius, a scholar, an artist, and an imp of Shaitan were rolled into one personality, it was Lawrence." In 1919 Stirling became advisor to Emir Feisal and Deputy Political Officer in Cairo, then acting governor of Sinai and Governor of the Jaffa district in Palestine before moving to Albania in 1923 to take up a position advising and assisting in the reorganisation of the Albanian Ministry of the Interior.

        Yosemite Valley from near Glacier Point Hotel.

      N.p., [San Francisco] 1918 - Original oil on canvas. 12 x 8 inches. Signed, numbered and dated by Stuart in the lower left corner. Contemporary frame with mild wear. Fine condition.A fine view of Yosemite. On the back, as usual, Stuart has written all the relevant data for this painting, including its supposed retail price of it: No. 2488. $500. Original Sketch. Tenaya Peak 10000 ft. el. in the distance. Cloud's Rest and Half Dome right in the middle distance. From near Glacier Point Hotel. Yosemite National Park, Cal. Painted Aug. 2, 1918. J.E. Stuart". James Everett Stuart began his art studies in San Francisco and studied at the San Francisco School of Design under R. D. Yelland and Virgil Williams. He became part of what is now called the San Francisco Art Boom of the 1870s, and from that time on he was a noted painter of the West Coast. His work ranged greatly in quality. James Everett Stuart painted over 5,000 pictures during his long art career, this fact known because beginning in 1900 he kept a journal of all of his work. Stuart paintings often have the location and price written on the back of the paintings; the price is usually very high, exorbitant even, and he would sell the art a a fraction of the price in times of need. Stuart was primarily a landscapist who painted throughout the American West.His paintings are in the collections of the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, Alaska; the Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama; the Crocker Art Gallery, Sacramento; the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; the Fred Jones Jr Museum of Art, Norman, Oklahoma; the Golden Gate Park Museum, San Francisco; the Hearst Art Gallery, St. MaryÕs College, Moraga, California; the Joslyn Memorial Art Gallery, Omaha, Nebraska; the Kalamazoo Art Association, Michigan; the Los Angeles Museum of History and Science; the Millicent Rogers Museum, Taos, New Mexico; the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah; the Oregon Historical Society, Portland; the Southwest Museum, Los Angeles; the University of Southern California, Los Angeles; the University of Alaska Museum of the North; and the Washington State Historical Museum.

        On the Quantum Theory of Line-Spectra

      Copenhagan: Bianco Lunos, 1918. FIRST EDITIONS of all three parts of one of Bohr's most influential works: his groundbreaking paper on the "correspondence principle." On the Quantum Theory of Line-Spectra "was to have been divided into four parts. Part I: On the general theory was finished in November 1917, and was ready from the printer on April 27, 1918. Part II: On the hydrogen spectrum appeared in print on December 30, 1918. Part III: On the elements of higher atomic number was greatly delayed because of the rapid development of the field, by Bohr and others, until it was finally printed in November 1922 together with an Appendix dealing with later work and serving to bring the treatise to a natural conclusion. Part IV, in which the generally theory was to have been applied to the constitution of atoms and molecules, was never completed."The treatise was published as a Memoir of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters (Dan. Vid. Selsk. Skrifter, naturvid.-mat. Afd., 8. Raekke, Bd. IV, Nr. 1 (1918)). This medium of publication, prompted by the size of the treatise, and the unsettled conditions existing in Europe at the time, undoubtedly contributed to the slowness with which Bohr's novel way of treating the problems of quantum theory became known to most physicists."Bohr's treatise is as comprehensive as the titles of its four parts indicate. It is unified by the fundamental assumption of an analogy between the quantum theory and classical electrodynamics, a point of view which a couple of years later came to be called the 'correspondence principle.'... [T]his principle.. was destined to serve as the principle guide to the progress of the quantum theory in the early twenties, and which later was built into the quantum mechanics" (J.R. Nielsen, The Correspondence Principle).Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Bohr's invention of the correspondence principle. Nobel prize to N. Bohr awarded in 1922 'for his investigation of the structure of atoms, and of the radiation emanating from them'".Copenhagen: Bianco Lunos, 1918-1922. Quarto, original wrappers; custom cloth box. Wrappers with a little toning to edges (as usual); Part III with soiling to front wrapper. Pencil notation at top of Part I wrapper. Text extremely clean. Rare, particularly with all three parts in original wrappers and without any institutional stamps. Very Good.

        MY ANTONIA

      1918 - [a fine copy] With Illustrations by W. T. Benda. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1918. Original brown cloth lettered in orange. First Edition, 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.~This is a fine copy, with only the merest hints of usage -- virtually flawless, unusually free of wear or soil, and with no bookplates or signatures. Since this was a modestly-produced wartime book, we seldom see copies approaching this condition anymore. Crane A9a.1. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
