        The F - 5L FLYING BOAT HANDBOOK. Navy Department. Bureau of Construction and Repair. December, 1918.

      Government Printing Office,, Washington: 1918 - Illustrated with 57 figures/images, many from b/w photographs; 10 are fold- out diagrams at rear. This manual "is designed to give the most satisfactory method of unpacking and assembling the model F-5L flying boat, together with information and suggestions which may prove valuable in its care and maintenance." [Introduction]. The F-5L was "a variant of the Felixstowe F.5 that was designed by Commander John C. Porte of the Royal Navy. This US version had Liberty engines, which were noted in its designation with the letter "L". 138 F-5Ls were produced by the United States Navy's Naval Aircraft Factory: 60 by Curtiss, and 30 by Canadian Aeroplanes of Toronto. . In April 1919, one of these F-5L flying boats, flown by Lieutenant H. B. Grow, set a flight endurance record of 20 hours and 19 minutes." ["Ancient Seaplanes"]. Page a rather well-known individual in the aviation industry, taking his first solo flight in 1913, was one of the first to fly scheduled planes to foreign destinations as a pilot for American Trans-Oceanic [1920-21], and "who in 1943 became Director of Engineering for the entire airplane division of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation. From his headquarters in St. Louis, he was credited with designing some sixty models for the company. Perhaps his most celebrated achievement was the C-46 "Commando," the cargo-carrying bulwark of the war effort." [Horgan, City of Flight]. Light-to-average wear.

        War Drawings . A Large Portfolio of 60 ' War Drawings' of Aspects of the First World War

      London: Published By Authority of the War Office. Good with no dust jacket. 1918. Presentation Edition. Hardcover. Folio sized (c. 22" x 19" ) heavy card portfolio with ties, with a dark blue cloth spine and 'duck-egg' blue , black titled, paper boards - completely split in two and tatty, having been repaired with a black tape to the spine, at some point, but now consists basically of just the front and back covers, which are complete and of course have protected the contents, which are 60 super lithographic prints of various aspects/people and places of the First World War. Despite having been described as a 'Presentation Edition', NONE of these prints are signed separately in pencil, (as in the De Luxe Ediion of which there were only 50 copies - all signed) but have his usual integral signature on each individual drawing. The 60 prints are FINE - printed in a variety of tones, mainly duo toned - black with a coloured wash - but a few with added colour and one or two more fully coloured. They vary in image size, but most images are just a little smaller than the paper size which measured to the blank edges is c. 20" x 16". All the prints have blank margins, some are a little dusty at the edges, but all the images are Near Fine to FINE, with the exception of the first print of Sir Douglas Haig, which is foxed (has light brown spotting). A separate 'Title Page' accompanies this set listing all the Prints by title/place. This is slightly creased/marked. " Muirhead Bone (1876 -1953) A Glasgow born draughtsman and engraver, became the First Official War Artist in July 1916. The detail and accuracy of Bone's drawings made him a prime choice for the authorities at Wellington House. He was made an honorary second lieutenant and provided with a car, giving him easier access to the action at the front. Bone was sent to France on his first commission. The next year he worked on naval subjects, followed by a short period in France to record the devastation of the towns..." . This portfolio includes scenes from the Western Front as well as a few naval subjects. A Complete Set of 60 Lithographic prints. Quite Scarce. See Images. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall .

        Roosevelt thanks industrialist John Willys for ?having sent me that extract? ? most likely about his youngest son Quentin Roosevelt who was killed in aerial combat over France a month earlier

      "Typed Letter Signed ?Theodore Roosevelt,? one page, 7? x 9.75?. Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y., August 16, 1918. To John N. Willys, Willys-Overland Co., Manchester, Mass. Light horizontal fold crosses loop of ?L?. On watermarked stationery. Fine condition.In full, ?I am really obliged to you. I appreciate your having sent me that extract.? On watermarked paper. Light horizontal fold passes through upper loop of ?l? of bold, full signature. Fine condition.Just a month earlier, on July 14, 1918, TR?s youngest son, 20-year-old Lieutenant Quentin Roosevelt, was killed in aerial combat over France. It is highly likely that Willys had sent Theodore Roosevelt an extract from a local Massachusetts newspaper concerning Quentin?s death.?The New York Times? called John N. Willys (1873-1935), President of the Willys-Overland Company, the ?Napoleon of Automobile Finance? in a January 14, 1912, feature story. ?Mr. Willys,? the article continued, ?is but 38 years old. When he assumed the Presidency of the Overland Company at 34 years of age, he was the youngest President in the industry.? Coincidentally, when Theodore Roosevelt assumed the Presidency of the United States at 42 years of age, he was the youngest President in U.S. history. Willys was only 61 when he died; Roosevelt was only 60.Politically, Willys was a Republican and had served as an Ohio delegate to the 1916 Republican National Convention in Chicago. He was later appointed U.S. Ambassador to Poland (1930-1932) by Republican President Herbert Hoover."

        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.

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.

        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. & "
