      1918 - Unico stato, fuori dall’inciso: "B. Disertori" con firma autografa a penna dell’artista. L’acquaforte, che risulta citata per la prima volta nell’autunno del 1919, è databile agli anni 1918-1919, anche sulla base di una certa analogia stilistica con la stampa "L’Arco di Tito".

Formato: Acquaforte e bulino, mm. 318 x 158 (inc.), mm. 348 x 180 (las.). Buono.

An archive of material relating to the smouldering volcanic outcrop at Mount Wingen, prepared by local landholder and pastoralist William Edward Abbott (1844-1924) and his nephew John Henry Abbott (1874-1953).

The materials in this archive were presented, with manuscript dedications, to another leading pastoralist of the region, Mr. Henry White.

White Esq, with the compliments of J.H.M. Abbott October 1920'; with loosely inserted photograph measuring 205x154 mm., manuscript note to rear of the image reads: 'Photo taken shewing a portion of the Burning Mountain at Mount Wingen, near Scone NSW. Photo taken by Claire Wilson about 1891. Negative purchased by S. W. Jackson in 1896. To H.L. White, Esq. from S.W. Jackson 12.5.1921.' 2. Two further typed manuscript sections, 2 and 8 leaves respectively, housed in a brown card folder printed "Mount Wingen The Burning Mountain of Australia". These are excepts relating to the phenomenon taken from the {i Sydney Gazette }and other early newspapers. 3. Published book titled {i Mount Wingen and the Wingen Coal Measures }by W.E. Abbott (Sydney, Angus & Robertson, 1918); slim quarto, 26 pp, folding lithographic map in rear sleeve, photo plates; in special crushed morocco binding with gilt lettering, bookplate of Henry White.

        [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.

        Ministry of Munitions of War. H.M. Factory, Gretna. Description of Plant and Process.

      Dumfries: Printed for HMSO by J. Maxwell & Son, 1918 - Foolscap quarto (338 × 208 mm) Original maroon skiver, title gilt to the upper board within panel of swags in blind. Rubbed at the extremities, and neatly rebacked, contents clean and sound. Profusely illustrated with diagrams, plans and sketch-maps, many of them folding, some coloured, and a number of half-tone plates from photographs including extensive panoramas of the works and the cordite ranges. First and only edition. The massive factory site, which included the two purpose-built townships of Gretna and Eastriggs, was established as a response to the Shell Crisis of 1915. The plant's product was cordite - a smokeless propellant explosive comprised of a mixture of nitro-glycerine and nitro-cellulose, or gun cotton, and described by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle after a visit to the site as "The Devil's Porridge" - and within a year of commencing production it was turning out 800 tons a week, more than all the other factories in Britain combined. Two thirds of the close 17,000 workers were women. The site was closed at the end of the war, the buildings demolished, eventually being parcelled off into 700 lots and sold off in the 1920s. A remarkably detailed technical account of this vital contribution to victory in World War I, this copy that of Lord Moulton who was Director General of the Explosive Supply Department. Uncommon, just four copies recorded on OCLC.

        Typed Letter Signed

      1918, 1918 - SHAW, George Bernard. Typed Letter Signed concerning Sailing Ships and their numbers. A letter by Shaw, typed on his 10 Adelphi Terrace, W.C. letterhead to a S.H. Carter, Esq., Craghill, Ravenscar, Scarborough. 7th January 1918. Dear Sir I have not had a look at the docks since the war, to which thestatement in my article has of course no reference; but it is one of the standing surprises of the riverside in London, now that we have come to regard sailing craft as obsolete, to see the closely packed rows of old fashioned wooden sailing ships, most of them looking fresh from the builders' yards, moored there. It may not be literally true that an XVII century seamen [sic] would see more wooden ships today below London Bridge - even new ones- than he could have supposed the world to contain in his lifetime; but ifnot, the seamen of that day must have had robust imaginations. I daresay itis possible to find out what the wooden sailing tonnage is today; but I have not the necessary works of reference at hand here. The percentage of thetotal traffic carried in such ships must be much less; but this does not imply the number of the ships themselves is not much greater. Yours faithfully [signature:] G.

        American Expeditionary Forces Tank Corps Archive

      Fletcher, Private Robert G., Camp Colt, PA and France 1918 - 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.

George Patton had a sister, Anne, and was very close to his Aunt, whom he referred to as Aunt Nannie.
