        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.

        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]

        Speeches and Writings […] authorized up-to-date and comprehensive collection. First edition:

      G.A. Natesan &amp: Co., Madras , [1918]. 8vo. pp. xvi, 296, [viii] adverts + pp. [xvi] b/w illustrations; original green paper wrappers, worn. Internal evidence derived from the text and the publisher's advertisements reveals that this collection was published at the very end of 1917 or early in 1918. Natesan, an Indian nationalist publisher who had sent funds to Gandhi in South Africa and who hosted Gandhi and his wife when they stayed in Madras in 1915, claims in his preface that "this is the first attempt to bring under one cover an authorized, exhaustive and up-to-date collection of the speeches and writings of M.K. Gandhi". He adds: "the publishers desire to take this opportunity to convey their thanks to Mr Gandhi for the permission accorded to them to bring out this edition of his speeches and writings and for furnishing them with copies of several of his hitherto unpublished speeches as also with English translations of some of his writings and addresses in Guzarati". Natesan reinforces this sense of Gandhi's personal involvement with by reproducing a photograph of the author and his wife with the publisher taken in Madras in 1915. It is a scarce and ephemeral title, with no copies recorded at auction and with only one recorded institutional example of this edition, held by the British Library. Another edition, tentatively dated 1917 by the British Library cataloguer, was published in Madras by Ganesh & Co. It appears to be a well-intentioned pirate edition, published without Gandhi?'s direct involvement. Establishing primacy is difficult - both books contain works dating to November 1917. It might be possible to read into Natesan?'s emphasis on printing an up-to-date authorised edition a certain annoyance that another publisher had pipped him to the post with (what he considered to be) an inferior collection, but that remains pure conjecture.

        Archive of letters and documents between Austrian President Kurt Waldheim and noted collector Jerry Granat regarding Waldheim's activities during WWII

      Austrian politician (born 1918) who was Secretary General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981 and President of Austria from 1986 to 1992. His activities during World War II stirred up a storm of controversy in the mid-1980s when gaps in his biography led many to believe that Waldheim was a former Nazi who participated in war crimes during World War II. Though a head of state, he remained a de facto outcast throughout much of the world during his presidency, and though he was essentially exonerated?"it was determined that he knew of certain crimes but was not an active participant?"the true nature of his involvement with the Nazis remains unresolved. Archive of documents related to the controversy surrounding Waldheim's wartime activities, circa 1975?"1986. Included: TLS signed "Kurt," one page, May 9, 1975, to collector Gerard Granat, explaining his activities in 1938. In part: "I did not participate at Dr. Schuschnigg's historical meeting with Hitler, but was politically active for the Socialist movement in the underground." TLS signed "Kurt Waldheim," one page, May 7, 1986, to Granat, apologizing for a delay in responding and mentioning that his son will give Granat the information he seeks. Matte-finish 4 x 5.75 photo, signed in ballpoint in the blank lower margin, "Kurt." Detailed ALS from Waldheim's son, Gerhard, three pages on two sheets, May 15, 1986, outlining evidence refuting the accusations against his father. In part: "The continued charges, clearly it is implicated [sic] that he carries at least co-responsibility as a desk lieutenant writing enemy reports ... . [It] is either a conscious effort to prove guilt by misconstruing facts or the sad result of someone who has never served in the military... ." Unsigned carbon copies of several letters from Granat to Waldheim and his son, expressing doubts about Waldheim's innocence and requesting information. Several unsigned copied pages of documents related to the case and Waldheim's activities. In fine condition overall, with scattered bends and light handling wear. From the Jerry Granat collection.

        Les Jockeys Camoufles

      1918. MATISSE, Henri. Les Jockeys Camouflés. By Pierre Reverdy. Illustrated with reproductions of 5 drawings by Matisse. 4to., bound in original printed wrappers, preserved in a recent half-morocco box. Paris: The Author, 1918.An inscribed copy of the second version of Matisse&#39;s first illustrated book. In the first version each of the poems was printed in coloured ink: green, orange, and blue, respectively. Reverdy was outraged by the final product; not only did he dislike the coloured typography, but he was annoyed that both he and the artist were referred to as "Monsieur..." on the title page - a formalism he found ridiculous. Reverdy immediately had this version prepared in black, "la seule édition approuvée par les auteurs." One of only 100 copies on Simili-Japon (there were 5 on Japon Imperial), the colophon initialed by Reverdy. The name of the recipient has been neatly excised. A rare and important book. Claude Duthuit, Henri Matisse, Ouvrages Illustres No. 41. The Artist and the Book 195 (the first version). Skira 255.

        A Royal Prisoner

      New York: Brentano's, 1918 New York: Brentano's, 1918. First American Edition. 12mo, 277 pp. Maroon cloth, lettered in gilt. Part of the Fantômas Detective Novels series, French pulp fiction in which, in early 20th century France, a series of audacious crimes are committed by an unknown criminal called Fantomas, who seems to be able to change shape and place supernaturally, speaks in cliches, and is the object of more than a little erotic interest to women - in particular Lady Beltham, who is magnetically attracted to him, yet aghast at his crimes, throughout the series. Inspector Juve (who may be Fantomas' brother) searches for him obsessively. Souvestre & Allain's Fantomas series included no less than 32 collaborative, all originally written in French between 1911 and 1913, then a subsequent eleven volumes written by Allain alone after Souvestre's death in 1914. Dominated by this essence of an archetypal villain rather in opposition to the archteypal super-detective Sherlock Holmes, the mystique of the series was immensely popular among contemporary French surrealists. A Royal Prisoner [original French title: Un Roi Prisonnier de Fantômas] is one of the scarcest titles in the Brentano's first American editions. Slightly sunned spine leaning a bit, light shelf wear, small bump to middle of rear cover; very good. L21
