        New Poems

      London: Martin Secker,, 1918. Octavo. Original grey wrappers, lettered in dark blue on front cover. Housed in a dark blue cloth chemise and slipcase. Skilful old repair to spine. An exceptionally nice copy. First edition, first impression, "the first printing consisted of 500 copies" (Roberts & Poplawski). Siegfried Sassoon's copy, inscribed on the half-title, in the month of publication: "Siegfried Sassoon. Oct. 1918" and with his monogram book label pasted inside the front cover, which was added to all the books from Sassoon's library that were auctioned by Sotheby's in 1991. "On 13th July 1918, Sassoon was just returning from a patrol in No Man's Land when he was shot in the head by one of his own sergeants, who mistook him for an advancing German. The incident is recounted in Sherston's Progress" (Robert Giddings, The War Poets, 1988, p. 159). Sassoon's diary for early October 1918, show the after effects of this trauma in terse comments such as "awful headache" and "very exhausted", alongside his participation in London's busy social whirl. Two years after the appearance of New Poems Sassoon parodied Lawrence in "Fireflies. A Set of Parodies of the Works of Some Famous Modern Poets" (Vanity Fair, September 1920).

        Typed letter signed.

      Whitehall, 25. I. 1918. - 4to. 1½ pp. on double leaf. As Minister of Munitions, a stern wartime letter to his recalcitrant colleague Joseph Paton Maclay, 1st Baron Maclay (1857-1951), on gaining essential military raw material from Spain and Narvik (Norway): "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 [.]". - On stationery with printed letterhead of the Ministry of Munitions; punched holes at top left corner.

        Slezské Písne [Silesian songs]

      Ekaterinburg: Vydáno Osvetlím odborem O.C.S.N.R. [Odbocka Ceskoslovenské Národní Rady v Rusku], 1918. Cloth. Very Good. 2mo (13.5 x 11.5 cm). 128 pp. This rather elaborately printed edition of Petr Bezruc?'s popular Czech poetic cycle, Silesian Songs, is a relic of the publishing operations of the Czechosloak Legions during their famed Anabasis during the early phases of the Russian Civil War. The Czech Legion were fighting on behalf of the Entente (the U.K., France, Russia) and specifically Tsar during the First World War in the cause of Czech independence from Austria, which was one of the opposing Central Powers. They had proved a puissant combat force, but the Bolshevik Revolution and the subsequent Soviet treaty with the Central Powers threw everything up in the air. Soon the Czech Legion was taking sides in the Civil War which ensued, with the Legion aligning itself with the Whites, or the Counter-Revolutionary forces. Initially the Legion scored great success against the disorganized, ill-trained Soviet fighters, and by 1919 the Legion had complete control of the Trans Siberian Railroad. Unfortunately for them, the Soviet army got its act together and swiftly reversed the tide by mid-1919, at which point members of the Legion became suddenly homesick and scrambled as best they could to escape from Soviet territory. Most eventually did get out, after long delays and anxieties, and members of the Legion formed the core of the Czech army formed after the country achieved independence with the Treaty of Versailles. In any case, this publication is evidence of the roots the Czech Legion very quickly was able to put down in the land they controlled in Russia, and it is perhaps also surprising at how high the production values are of this trifle. Tan cloth with embossed red title and ornament; original wrappers preserved; handwritten and illustrated text lithographically reproduced; 5-128 pp. Boards lightly soiled; text toned

        COUNTER-ATTACK AND OTHER POEMS.

      London: William Heinemann, 1918. - Original red and orange wrappers, neatly and sympathetically rebacked in light tan paper with spine lettering, Usual slight tanning to text block, small chip from lower corner of rear wrapper, but a good copy. Folding cloth clamshell box with gilt lettered label. First edition (1500 copies printed) of the first public printing in book form of many of Sassoon's most significant war poems. Inscribed by Sassoon on the half-title: "To J.M. Barrie with admiration from Siegfried Sassoon May 1919." Additionally, Sassoon has made seven corrections in the text in pencil. The circumstances of the presentation can be fairly confidently nailed down: Sassoon had assisted in various ways with the preparation of the first number of THE OWL, the lavish literary periodical edited by his close friend Robert Graves. There was a deluxe issue of 24 copies to be signed by the contributors, and in SIEGFRIED'S JOURNEY (1945, pp.147-8), Sassoon relates how he took 24 copies of the newly minted May publication to Thomas Hardy for his signature. Hardy had contributed and was then staying with Sir James Barrie. It seems possible, if not probable, that Sassoon presented this gift to Barrie on that occasion, or, if not that day, immediately thereafter. KEYNES A17a. REILLY, p.285. BLUNDEN, et al, p.9.

        Dans les ténèbres

      Mercure de France, Paris 1918 - 276 pages, 20 X 16 cm Edition originale de cet ouvrage posthume (Bloy est mort le 3 novembre 1917), un des 75 ex. sur Hollande (N°52) après 7 Chine et 11 Japon. On peut y lire : « Songez donc ! Faire fortune lorsque la ruine menace tout le monde, utiliser les catastrophes en les aggravant, féconder la désolation, fertiliser le désespoir, être les mouches prospères et la ribotante vermine des morts, après avoir été la dernière torture des agonisants ! Ne serait-ce pas le comble de la bêtise de négliger l'occasion du sommeil inexplicable de la guillotine ? Accaparer les subsistances, raréfier ou sophistiquer la nourriture de tout un peuple pour en décupler la valeur sont des pratiques traditionnelles que la potence rémunérait autrefois et que récompensent aujourd'hui l'admiration et l'envie. Il y a les grands et les petits profiteurs et c'est une question de savoir quels sont les plus hideux. Les grands assassinent les pauvres de très loin, d'une manière générale, à l'abri de telle ou telle combinaison administrative toujours mystérieuse. Les petits, ceux qu'on nomme les détaillants, égorgillent chaque jour les indigents qui leur tombent nécessairement sous la main. Admirablement concertés entre eux, ils établissent les prix qu'ils veulent, réalisant des gains de 3 ou 400 pour cent. C'est la guerre ! disent-ils avec un sourire et ils triomphent dans leur turpitude, sachant très bien qu'aucune sanction n'interviendra pour désobliger les électeurs. » Exemplaire tel que paru, à toutes marges, bien complet du portrait de Bloy par son épouse en frontispice, en excellent état, excepté quelques coupure au bord de la très fragile couverture papier caractéristique du Mercure de France au début du vingtième siècle. 950 € (1 scans) Maison [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

It was funny to see them go clear out of sight and then reappear and go on. I wish all the men could drive as well as the ones we had in the platoon this morning we would certainly kill Germans. We are having lovely weather but it is I believe too dry for the corps at least they dont look very well according to my notion. I am invited out to lunch so must stop and clean up. Much love to all Your devoted son G S Patton Jr."" Written as director of the 311th Tank Center, Langres, France. In 1919, Lieutenant Colonel Patton was cited by Gen John J.

        Traction on Bad Roads or Land; with Combined Discussion on Arthur Amos' Paper on Utility of Motortractions for tillage Purposes

      Institution of Mechancial Engineers, London 1918 - Octavo. Jan. 1918 - Feb. 1918 p.55-194, 40 pages of plates, Lucien Legros was President of the Institute of Automotive Engineers throughout World War I. In 1916 he addressed their members "this is an engineers' war, but it is more particularly a mechanical and automobile engineers' war, for the civil, mining and electrical branches of engineering, while taking their great and due share of the work, have not been responsible for the creation of either ordnance or munitions or for military transport of a kind and on a scale never before contemplated. . Yet the mechanical engineer is not a recognized factor in the army! There is no Chief Mechanical Engineer corresponding to the Engineer-in-Chief of the Fleet, and it has been necessary to create a Ministry of Munitions to deal with vital questions of production; the same applies right down the scale, with the result that men of high mechanical ability and qualifications are officered by men with only ordinary military knowledge or mere administrative capacity." The tractor trucks here shown in detail were, of course, fundamental to tank design; in fact, there were principles here that the British were late in applying since they had become dependent on tanks moving slowly ahead of the infantry. It was the engineers who saw military strategy that the older generation of British generals could not understand. Very scarce a very good copy bound in half leather over cloth, red leather label gilt, original wrappers bound in, in a slipcase. Profusely illustrated with 100 photographs (some of which clearly are early tank models) and detailed charts.

        Fibre technology

      for City of Bradford, Technical College, Dept. of Textile Industries 1918-1920], [Bradford, West Yorkshire - Folio (approx. 13¼" x 9½"), pp. [74]; manuscript text in a cursive hand on ruled paper, including 18 leaves of hand-drawn color diagrams, several diagrams showing the set-up of a loom, 54 tipped-in fabric samples on card stock, contained in a two-ring binder with ownership signature and title on front pastedown, Bradford Technical College Stamps on rear pastedown, and with a professor's signature approving the manuscript; moderately worn, some chipping and soiling to the fore-edges, some soiling to end leaves. A cotton-, silk-, and wool-weaving manuscript made by a student, with numerous tipped-in samples, hand-drawn and lettered colored diagrams throughout. A remarkable artifact showing the training a weaver received at the Bradford Technical College. These course books were judged on completeness and the aspiring weaver's skill in presenting the details about the instruction, as well as their abilities to illustrate and accurately portray the production of (in this case) rather stunning cotton, silk, and woolen fabrics. The manuscript details the instructions for preparing the loom, and weaving diagrams for producing embossed fabrics, silk neckwear and men's ties, gauze and lace weaving, silk laces, tapestry weaving, muslins, madras muslins, machine- and hand-woven carpets - all of them with tipped-in fabric samples showing the resulting product. The beautifully executed color diagrams and illustrations show an aspiring weaver's professional abilities. The lettering demonstrates a decidedly pre-War Arts & Crafts influence, and the hand-colored diagrams detail Brussels Structure, Wilton Carpet Structure, Axminster Structures, Warp Pile Structures, various styles of tufts, Upper and Lower Comber-Board, and more. The City of Bradford Technical College was founded in 1882 to train English weavers and workers on new machinery, and feed the fast growing textile industry at the end of the 19th century. Its predecessor, the Bradford's Mechanics Institute did not encourage the education of workers and resisted training them on applied weaving theory as evidenced by the Swiss, French, and German weavers surpassing their products, and the poor response to the Braford Textiles at the 1878 Paris Exhibition. Just before World War I the Bradford Technical College had substantially expanded and opened state-of-the-art facilities for teaching weaving, spinning, dyeing, and finishing fabrics, which served them well during the post-War recovery. Manuscripts of this sort are uncommon due to their fragility and heavy use. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
