        American Expeditionary Forces Tank Corps Archive

      Camp Colt, PA and France: Fletcher, Private Robert G., 1918. Letters. Very Good. This is a terrific grouping of World War I postal history from Private Robert G. Fletcher of Birmingham, Alabama that documents the birth of the U.S. Army's Armor Branch. Highlights of this collection of 16 postcards and covers with letters include two rare Treat 'Em Rough envelopes, one rare Treat 'Em Rough letterhead, one rare Tank Corps Camp Colt envelope, one rare AEF Christmas package mailing coupon, and two scarce American Red Cross 'postal' handstamps. Private Fletcher's dog tags are included as well. Fletcher was drafted in March of 1918, and by early May he had reported to Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for training in the soon to be formed Tank Corps commanded by Major Dwight D. Eisenhower. Upon deployment, he was assigned to C Company, 302nd Tank Battalion, a unit equipped with heavy British Mark VI tanks. In France, the 302nd was stationed in Langres (APO 714) at the AEF's Tank Center commanded by Captain George S. Patton. Following the Meuse-Argonne offensive, Fletcher was reassigned to the 344th Tank Battalion, also stationed at Langres, which was equipped with light French Renault tanks. Censorship was apparently very strict in the Tank Corps as Fletcher's letters are mostly requests for additional mail from home and provide little insight into unit operations. Still, this collection of materials that date from the creation of the Tank Corps at Gettysburg through the Armistice is unique, and it is unlikely that any other similar assemblages exist.

        The Stereoscopic Skin Clinic.

      . New York, Medical Art Publishing Co., 1918, 8°, 132 Stereofarblith. Tafeln; in original Leinenkasten mit Stereobetrachter.. Third edition of the first coloured stereoscopic atlas of skin diseases with 132 plates! - The Stereoscopic Skin Clinic. (The stereoscopic skin clinic; an atlas of diseases of the skin consisting of coloured stereoscopic illustrations and a text in the form of clinical lectures designed for the use of practitioners and students of medicine.) by S.I.Rainforth - The cards are arranged in alphabetic order, from Acne to Zoster, with text on the back of the cards consisting of description, diagnosis and treatment. William Culp Darrah, the historian of stereography, waxed enthusiastic in his survey of the field: "Some very remarkable multicoloured lithoprints, illustrating diseases of the skin, were first copyrighted and issued in 1910 by Doctor S. I. Rainforth of New York...The colours of the images are remarkably lifelike, the skin and pathologic conditions are scientifically accurate. It is unfortunate that these cards are so rare...because they represent some of the best stereo lithoprinting."--Darrah, Stereo Views. A History of Stereographs in America and Their Collection." p.163

        The Magic Pudding . Being the Adventures of Bunyip Bluegum and his friends Bill Barnacle & Sam Sawnoff

      Sydney: Angus & Robertson, 1918. Quarto, colour frontispiece and illustrations throughout by Lindsay; rear board a trifle worn otherwise a fine copy in illustrated papered boards with maroon cloth spine. An Australian classic. First edition, with a presentation inscription by the publisher George Robertson. The best-loved and most frequently reprinted of all Australian children's books, and a classic of modern Australian literature. This is an example of the very scarce first issue of the first edition, with green "A.& R." endpapers and maroon cloth spine lettered in gilt.'The book is spontaneous and alive, the illustrations reinforcing the text, and the characterisation brilliantly realised' (Muir). Angus and Robertson's initial belief that the book would appeal to children and collectors of Norman Lindsay alike has proven correct ever since. Their decision to print it in large format on the highest quality art paper was justified, even though it meant that the price was very high for a children's book (four times that of {i Snugglepot and Cuddlepie }published a few weeks earlier).

        "Proclamation. To the People of Wilayat of Baghdad ... F. S. Maude, Lieutenant-General, Commanding the British Forces in Iraq"

      [Baghdad: 8-Mar. 1918.]. "Together with the same, with text in Iraqi Arabic. Together 2 broadsides with (presumably) identical text, each approximately 17½ x 11¼ inches, (444 x 287 mm), different royal seals at the top of each, approximately 40 lines of type (27 in the Arabic version) under the running head, 10 floriated initials in the English version; previous folds, very minor short tears; very good condition.& & Remarkably well-preserved copies of these rare (unique?) regionally-printed broadsides (we've been unable to locate any holdings of any edition, except that at The Imperial War Museum which has a different English printing in a smaller format and with a different title). The printer's slug at the bottom (""S.P.G.B. - 1996 - 6,000 - 8-3-18"") seems to indicate that indicates that 6,000 were ordered printed.& & With the utter failure of Sir John Nixon's command of Mesopotamian forces from April 1915 to January 1916, culminating in the surrender of Sir Charles Townshend's force at Kut on 29 April 1916, Lieut.- Gen. F. S. Maude was made commander of the frontline Tigris Corps in July 1916. The following month he was given responsibility for the entire front. He immediately set about reorganizing and resupplying British and Indian forces in the region.& & Maude led his forces in a series of victories up the Tigris, starting with the Second Battle of Kut, until the capture of Baghdad on 11 March, 1917. British operations were widened to meet Turkish threats on the Euphrates, Diyala, and Tigris Rivers, and during the ensuing months, Maude claimed victories at Samarrah, Ramadi, and Tirkit before he died suddenly of virulent cholera on November 18.& & On March 19, however, Maude had issued this proclamation declaring, among other tenets: ""People of Baghdad, remember for 26 generations you have suffered under strange tyrants who have ever endeavoured to set one Arab house against another in order that they might profit by your dissensions. This policy is abhorrent to Great Britain and her Allies for there can be neither peace nor prosperity where there is enmity or misgovernment ... Our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators."" & & This notion - the army as liberator - was apparently the inspiration of Sir Mark Sykes (his papers contain a draft of the proclamation), was used, and has been used ever since, as a principle to justify invasions, particularly in the Middle East, and most recently in Iraq and Afghanistan by the United States.& & Comparison with the English text cited in various histories, records, and government documents shows a number of differences throughout, including changes in proper names, punctuation, paragraph breaks, and the addition or deletion of words. OCLC locates neither the Arabic or the English text in broadside form, and cites only its inclusion in The King of Hedjaz and Arab Independence, pp. 12-16, London, 1917. & "

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.

        [Original silver print photograph by Angus McBean]

      Thebom, Blanche (1918- 2010). [Original silver print photograph by Angus McBean]. 1950. Extremely large (20 x 15 3/4" [image]; 23 11/16 x 17 5/16" [mat]). Signed by McBean on mat. Image in perfect condition, mat with several small closed tears to margin, lower right corner chipped. Reference: Wilson, Frederic Woodbridge, The Theatrical World of Angus McBean, (2008). Thebom was the first American female opera singer to perform in Russia. With a beautiful mezzo soprano voice, and equally beautiful hair that extended six feet in length, she had a long and successful career as a soloist that began when Giuseppe Boghetti (Marian Andersonís teacher) discovered her singing aboard a cruise ship with her parents in 1938. Thebom performed at the Metropolitan Opera House in over 350 performances. Photograph by Angus McBean (1950). Pictured in the new biography of McBean (p.103): "After a series of conventional poses, the singer suggested that [McBean] might photograph her with her own hair, which reached the floor when let down. McBean contrived this pose, which required that the singer lie down on a bed of sand. He tore a sheet of wrapping paper to fit the contours of her hair in order to protect it from the grit."

        Tod und Sünderin.

      1918. Aquarellierte und Goldbronze gehöhte Lithographie, 1918, auf aufgewalztem China, signiert. Darstellungsgröße 18,8:13,5 cm, Blattgröße 33,5:25,8 cm.. Trotz großer Widerstände seitens ihres Elternhauses, das sie schon im Alter von 16 Jahren verließ, absolvierte die Künstlerin 1915-1918 ein Studium an der Dresdener Kunstgewerbeschule, parallel ab 1916-1919 Mal- und Zeichenkurse an der Dresdner Kunstakademie. Ihr Interesse galt schon zu Beginn den avantgardistischen Kunstströmungen, Dadaismus und Expressionismus. Nach der schwierigen Ehe mit dem Maler und Opernsänger Kurt Lohse, der ein liederlich ausschweifendes Leben führte, so daß sie in permanenter Armut lebte, und mehrfacher Trennungen wurde sie zeitweise obdachlos. Ein dadurch bewirkter seelischer und körperlicher Zusammenbruch führte 1929 zu einem mehrwöchigen Aufenthalt in einer Nervenheilanstalt. Hier entstanden die berühmten "Friedrichsberger Köpfe", Porträts ihrer Mitpatientinnen, die ihr große Anerkennung in der Kunstwelt, aber kaum Verkäufe einbrachten. Anschließend schaffte sie die endgültige Trennung von ihrem Ehemann. Es entstanden nachfolgend Bilder des Hamburger Hafens, des Arbeiter- und Prostituiertenmilieus sowie Selbstbildnisse. Finanzieller Erfolg stellte sich allerdings noch immer nicht ein, so daß sie weiterhin in wirtschaftlicher Not lebte. Nach der Rückkehr in ihr Elternhaus nach Dresden und zunehmender seelischer und körperlicher Zerrüttung ließ ihr Vater sie 1932 aus Unverständnis und Hilflosigkeit in die Landes-Heil- und Pfleganstalt Arnsdorf bei Dresden einweisen. "Schizophrenie" wurde kurzerhand diagnostisiert. 1935 wurde sie in der Frauenklinik Dresden im Rahmen der nationalsozialistischen Eugenik, des "Erbgesundheitsgesetzes", zwangssterilisiert. Völlig gebrochen erlischt nahezu vollständig ihre Schaffenskraft. 1940 wurde sie im Zuge des nationalsozialistischen Programms "lebensunwertes Leben" in die Landes-Heil- und Pflegeanstalt Pirna-Sonnenstein deportiert und ermordet.
