        Photo Album of the 222nd Aero Squadron

      [England 1918 - Oblong quarto. 7.5" x 10.25". Quarter morocco over coarse pebbled cloth. Contains 95 black and white gelatin silver photographs adhesive mounted both sides. Photos measure from 1.5" x 3" to 3.5" x 5.75"; about 10 of them appear to be commercial. Album good: board edges and corners heavily worn with losses; front board mostly detached; many leaves detached. Leaves toned with occasional foxing, photos generally very good or better.A wonderful hand drawn title page introduces this album by a member of the 222nd Aero Squadron. The 222nd formed in December 1917 at Scott Field in Illinois, moving to Garden City, New York the following February. It arrived in England in March 1918, and some of the men were sent to France on November 5, 1918 but for the most part the men stayed and trained in England. The album's compiler likely was in France as there are a couple of large commercial photos from France.A good number of the images show wrecked planes. There are aerial photos, group shots including one of the band, and a number show planes in flight. Others show the men chumming it up, working at a typewriter, and one shows a man piecing aerial photos together. A few are hand tinted. The leaves are also embellished with several other drawings including a downed German plane, falling bombs, ribbon-wrapped propellers and more.Exceptionally artful and interesting view of an earlyu aero squadron.

The booklet is mostly filled in with Burchill's personal information and upcoming events as well as friend's addresses. It also includes some small poems written by Burchill, "As a beauty I'm surely no star: There are others more hansome(sic) by far; But may grace, I don't mind it, Because I'm behind it! It's the people in front get the jar!" The last entry is written as October 4th, 1917 but several pages have 1918 written in, and the 1918 calendar is crossed out until the 4th. While mostly written while he was serving in France, the war content is minimal. Burchill fought in World War I and died in combat while stationed in France on October 9th, 1917.

        The Parrot's Training. (Translated by the author from its original Bengali). Calcutta and Simla, Thacker & Spink & Co., 1918.

      1918 1918 - 4to. Pp. (12). With eight full page plates drawn by Abanindra Nath Tagore. Some staining. Original pictorial paper wrappers designed by Nanda Lal Bose, one of Tagore's most famous pupils. Rare first English edition. The Bengali original "Totakahini" was published earlier the same year in the famous journal Sabujapatra. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), renowned Bengali poet, novelist, educator and composer has been considered to be the greatest writer in modern Indian literature. Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 as the first Asian recipient. This work is Tagore's famous satire on the futility of education through rote-learning from books - 'parrot-fashion' - then prevalent in India. He was a pioneer of creative education in India and started the school Patha Bhavana at Santiniketan in 1901 with a philosophy of learning with the heart in closeness to nature as opposed to the strict, repetitive and the rote learning system that was common during Tagore's childhood. The humorous drawings are by Tagore's artist nephew Abanindranath Tagore, the founder of the Bengal School of Art. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Collectie van 52 nummers van dit literaire maandschrift (1919-1923).

      Vier complete jaargangen (1918, 1919, 1922 en 1923) en losse nummers uit 1916 (1), 1920 (4) en 1921 (3). Verschillende uitgevers en formaten. Ook met enkele bijlagen: het Bijblad, aan toneel gewijd, dat in 1921 enkele malen werd toegevoegd, een prospectus van Het Getij en een van uitgeverij Van Munster, en het vers 'Aandachtig gedicht' van Willem de Mérode op muziek gezet door Derk Ubbens, de vader van De Mérode's oogappel Ekko Ubbens, over wie het gedicht handelt. Geïllustreerd. In het algemeen in vrij goede staat, maar ook met wat scheurtjes, vouwtjes en watervlekjes enkele omslagen los.l Zeer zeldzaam en interessant literair tijdschrift, dat bestond van 1916-1924 en al die tijd onder redactie stond van één persoon, de (zeer matige) dichter en criticus Ernst Groenevelt (1887-1955). Groenevelt stelde zijn blad open voor alle stromingen, en behalve de vaste auteurs Constant van Wessem, C.J. Kelk, M.J. Premsela en Willem de Mérode (plus een keur aan geheel vergetenen) treffen we originele bijdragen aan van onder anderen Slauerhoff, Theo van Doesburg, Hendrik de Vries, Herman van den Bergh, Pierre Kemp, E. d'Oliveira, en incidentele verrassingen van Paul van Ostaijen, Jos. Leonard, Renée Dunan en A. den Doolaard. Dada, expressionisme en andere moderne bewegingen (zoals de homoseksuelen die zich juist in de jaren 10 begonnen te uiten, heel voorzichtig en gemaskerd) komen uitgebreid aan bod. In 1918 en 1919 had het blad een zeer opmerkelijke vormgeving op zwaar Zaans-bord-achtig papier (omslagontwerp Roline Wichers Wierdsma). In 1921-1923 verscheen het in liggend formaat en gedrukt in twee kolommen, een voor de originele literatuur en een voor de recensies! Dit zijn, zoals de meeste uitgaven in oblongformaat, zeer kwetsbare en daarom extra zeldzame publicaties. Ik (Paul) heb dit tijdschrift 35 jaar verzameld, en verder dan deze collectie ben ik niet gekomen. Wel heb ik desgewenst nog een aantal duplicaten voor u.

      Moscow: Knizhnyi sklad" i magazin" M.S.R.D. [Cover: Otdel' Izdatel'stva i Knizhnoi Torgovli Moscovskago Soveta R.i.K.D.],, 1918. Octavo. Original pink printed paper wrappers, unopened. Pencil marking to front wrapper. Spine sunned with some loss to head and foot, front hinge delicate, contents browned with a few nicks and creases, overall a very good copy. An exceedingly rare edition in book form, no copies listed on OCLC or KVK, comprising 20 articles celebrating Marx's jubilee on 5 May 1918 from issues of Izvestii Moskovskago Soveta Rabochikh Deputatov (News of the Moscow Soviet of Worker-Deputies) and Izvestii Vserossiiskago Tsentral'nago Ispolnitel'nago Komiteta (News of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee). Titles include "K. Marx as a philosopher"; "K. Marx and the petty bourgeoisie", and "K. Marx and the woman question". It appears the articles were selected by the Department of Publishing and Book Sales of the Soviet, who sold the book for three roubles (as the imprint implies) at the bookshop of the Moscow Soviet of Worker-Deputies.

        O kommunizme, perevod s nemetskago [In Cyrillic.]

      Petrograd: Izdanie Petrogradskago Soveta Rabochikh i Krasnoarmeiskikh Deputatov,, 1918. Sextodecimo. Original buff paper wrappers printed in black with device to front and title page, wire-stitched. Numbered paper label to spine, occasional pencil markings. Some short tears and nicks to extremities and a minor closed tear to centre of front wrapper, contents browned with a few ink marks to page 57, overall a very good copy. An uncommon post-Russian Revolution edition of The Communist Manifesto, OCLC locating just two copies worldwide (National Library of Poland, Bibliothek der Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung). It was first published in German in 1848 and then in Russian in 1869 under the more common title "Manifest Kommunisticheskoi Partii". The text is the same as Plekhanov's partially censored translation published under the same title in Odessa by Burevestnik in 1905. Published for the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies, it contains the prefaces to the 1872, 1883, and 1890 editions, together with Plekhanov's footnotes from his 1900 edition. This is a scarce publication of "perhaps the best-known and certainly the most widely translated pamphlet of the nineteenth century" (ODNB).

        Was ist ein Friedensprogramm ?

      Petrograd 1918 - In-12° broché, 43 pages. Pendant l'hiver de 1917-1918, en tant que commissaire du peuple aux Affaires étrangères, Trotski est à la tête de la délégation communiste qui négocie la paix avec l'Allemagne et l'Autriche. Alors que Lénine veut une paix, même très mauvaise, rapidement et que Boukharine et les communistes de gauche veulent une guerre révolutionnaire, Troski préconise une ligne qui est "ni la guerre, ni la paix". Mais après un long conflit avec Lénine il se rallie à son point de vue, ce qui conduit à l'accord, très désavantageux pour la Russie soviétique de Brest-Litovsk. Mais il ne se rend pas sur place pour signer le traité. Au même moment les Américains commencent à soutenir militairement les Français et les Anglais, mais les Allemands et les Autrichiens n'ont plus d'hostilité à l'est. La nuit du 11 au 12 avril 1918, en période de Guerre civile russe, une action dirigée contre les anarchistes russes (qualifiés d'« anarcho-bandits ») par le pouvoir bolchévique dont Trotski s'occupe personnellement lui fera dire : « Enfin, le pouvoir soviétique débarrasse, avec un balai de fer, la Russie de l'anarchisme ! » Au printemps 1918 il joue un rôle décisif dans les opérations militaires contre les opposants armés au bolchévisme et notamment il reprend au début juillet la ville de Kazan sur la Volga. Sa popularité parmi les communistes est très grande. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Boni & Liveright, New York 1918 - Cloth-backed boards. First issue of the First Published Edition of Dreiser's only play with all three points; there was also a pre-publication copy which obviously was printed in a very small number. Twenty-five copies of this issue were signed on the title page by the author. This copy is SIGNED on the verso of the half-title page above the ads. Boni and Liveright printed this book early in 1918, but it was not actually published until September 1919 because it was being considered for production on the New York stage. Laid in is a TYPED LETTER SIGNED from publisher Horace Liveright dated 26 September 1919, the month of publication, forwarding the book to the noted collector Lafayette Butler. Liveright states, "Instead of persuading Mr. Dreiser to finish the trilogy, I have succeeded in getting him to finish THE BULWARK," mentioning that the novel would be published the following September. In fact, unknown to Liveright at the time, Dreiser had stopped working on the novel to begin work on AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY, and he would not resume work on it for twenty-five years. THE BULWARK was not published until 1946, after Dreiser's death. This is an absolutely stunning copy of this first collaboration between Dreiser and Liveright in a bright, fresh dustwrapper that was in Butler's private collection for 80 years, from the time it was published until we purchased it in the summer of 1999. A small sticker with a crossed-out price is on the spine presumably placed there by the publisher. Quite likely the Finest copy in existence, bright and clean in a similar dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Tribal Politics in Feisal's Area

      1918 - One of three essays in Arab Bulletin Supplementary Papers. No. 5. Only edition, one of fifteen copies printed. Small folio, stapled as issued. 15pp, and title page which also serves as the wrapper. Cairo, Arab Bureau, Savoy Hotel, June 24 One of the greatest Lawrence rarities, unnoticed by the bibliographers and in none of the great American collections (quite possibly there is no copy in America). OCLC reports copies at the University of Durham and the Bodleian, and Jeremy Wilson cites one at the Public Records Office in London. The essay by Lawrence is the fruit of his researches into the attitudes among the Arabs of the north of Palestine, made while planning an advance to Damascus led by an Arab army mounted on the 2000 camels donated by Allenby (as it turned out Feisal's army did take part in the advance to Damascus but not in as prominent a role as originally intended). The essay considers the state of affairs in the Howeitat, Beni Atiyah, Naimat, Hejaya, Hegeish, Beni Sakhr, Belgawiyeh, Ruwalla, Fadhld, and Naim tribes with notes on the situation at Kerak, Madeba and Maan. The text is written with Lawrence's usual mixture of clarity and precision leavened with occasional and unexpected bits of expressive writing and detached humour. How many other intelligence officers would have been content to name Metaab ibn Abtan, without the descriptive ?a very intelligent, venturous, attractive boy of seventeen?? Or who else could have been as ironic as this passage: ?Auda is as good as ever, but more wayward, if it be possible. He has now proved to his own satisfaction that his descent from the Prophet entitles him to equality with ordinary sherifs, if not to the actual title, and with Turkish prisoner-labour, he is building himself a great kasr of mud-brick at el-Jefer, and collecting 200 telegraph poles from the railway to roof it with.? The detail in the report is astonishing: ?Hatmal ibn Zebn is at Dhaba, intending to join Mithgal. Owaisi, his son, is with Murzuk at Towana. Nail is with Nasir, and Turki is just moving to Jial (Khan Zebib) to demolish something; Fahad and Mifleh are at Towana. The Gomaan have fallen out with Murzuk about pay, and are in bad odour with the other Beni Sakhr. Most of the Zebn tents are in Wadi Hamman, and they water from Themed . . .? One of the most important paragraphs is the one discussing Feisal's difficulty in delaying a revolt, since ?a premature rising in the north, while he is enmeshed in the south, would break the frail fabric he is so carefully building up . . . Sherifian propaganda is complete to Damascus, and every possible supporter in that area is prepared for his coming. It remains to see whether there is fuel enough in their fire to keep them at rebellion pitch till he can use them.? The battle for Arab hearts and minds continures: ?The Turks have extended their humanity and toleration campaign by sending Feisal further letters proposing an adjustment. Feisal has sent back elastic and obscure replies, tending to maintain the Turkish hope that accommodation may some day be possible. It seems a pity, by unnecessary brusqueness, to pull together into firm opposition the many old-Turk and liberal-Turk elements who now half believe the Sherif justified, and take an unconscious pleasure in seeing the Arabs defeat the Germano-Turk General Staff party in the field.? The other two essays in this supplement are not insignificant either. Lieut-Col C.E. Wilson in ?King of the Arabs? recounts in great detail an account of a meeting with King Husein in which they discuss in considerable detail the government of the future Arab state, whether his title can be extended from King of the Hejaz to King of the Arabs, the difference between political warfare and Jehad (religious war) and the Sykes/ Picot ?arrangement?, and D.G. Hogarth, Lawrence's archaeological mentor, reports on a fascinating conversation with the influential Syrian born, Egypt-based newspaper proprietor Dr. Faris Nimr, who argued a

As Gilcher notes, "Owing to the attempted legal suppression of 'The Brook Kerith' and the libel suit instituted on the publication of 'Lewis Seymour and Some Women', GM decided that in the future his books would be issued privately in limited editions. As Hone (p 343) relates it, '"A Story-Teller's Holiday" was the first of these limited editions, which it pleased Moore to issue under the sign of Cumann Sean-eolais na h-Eireann (Society for Irish Folklore), but no such society has ever existed.'"

        La Guerre Totale.

      S.l. 1918 - in-folio, 32 lignes sur belle page d'1 feuillet de titre et 170 ff., maroquin bleu janséniste, doublures en maroquin rouge encadrés d'un triple filet doré, gardes moirées et dominotées, dos à nerfs, non rogné, étui (Semet & Plumelle). Manuscrit autographe daté 27 mars 1918 signé Léon Daudet. Première apparition de l'expression "Guerre totale" qui fera florès au XXe siècle, définie ainsi par l'auteur dans son essai éponyme publié en 1918 : « C'est l'extension de la lutte, dans ses phases aiguës comme dans ses phases chroniques, aux domaines politique, économique, commercial, industriel, intellectuel, juridique et financier. Ce ne sont pas seulement les armées qui se battent, ce sont aussi les traditions, les institutions, les coutumes, les codes, les esprits et surtout les banques. L'Allemagne a mobilisé dans tous ces plans, sur tous ces points. Elle s'est livrée à un débordement de propagande, toujours acharnée, parfois intelligente, parfois stupide, rarement inutile. Elle a constamment cherché, au-delà du front militaire, la désorganisation matérielle et morale du peuple qu'elle attaquait. Elle a poursuivi, pendant les hostilités, en l'intensifiant son programme d'exploitation de l'espionnage et de la trahison, qui était celui de l'avant-guerre. » En 1918, Léon Daudet, 51 ans, est rédacteur en chef de l'Action Française journal qu'il a fondé avec Charles Maurras dix ans auparavant ; depuis 1912, le violent polémiste anti-dreyfusard, royaliste et antisémite organise le procès du "défaitisme et de la trahison" par voie de presse dénonçant une prétendue infiltration des milieux des affaires et de la politique par des agents à la solde de l'Allemagne. Il est condamné pour diffamation en 1913 mais poursuit sa campagne à la Nouvelle Edition Française : L'Avant-guerre études et documents sur l'espionnage juif-allemand en France depuis l'affaire Dreyfus (1914), Hors du joug allemand, mesures d'après guerre (1915). La Guerre totale, écrit et publié la dernière année du conflit conceptualise la vision de l'éditorialiste sous un titre destiné à marquer les esprits ; Daudet y raconte l'affaire « Bonnet rouge », soutenu par l'or allemand, produisant preuves et témoignages puisés dans les colonnes de l'Action Française. [Organe d'extrême gauche, le Bonnet Rouge a défendu le rapprochement franco-allemand avant le premier conflit mondial. En 1914, à la demande du ministre Joseph Caillaux, le journal a publié des articles prenant la défense de sa femme, Henriette Caillaux, accusée du meurtre de Gaston Calmette, le directeur du Figaro. Pendant la guerre, le directeur du Bonnet Rouge, Vigo, dit Almereyda, laisse la direction de son journal à un dénommé Duval, qui reçoit de l'argent de l'étranger pour infléchir la ligne éditoriale : de pacifiste qu'il était, le journal devient franchement antimilitariste, provoquant l'intervention fréquente de la censure. Lorsqu'il enquête sur l'origine des fonds versés au Bonnet Rouge, le magistrat Bouchardon, découvre un échange de correspondances aimables entre Almereyda et Caillaux, qui devra s'expliquer sur ses relations entretenues avec les dirigeants de ce journal. (Sé )]. En 1919, Léon Daudet publiera dans la même veine Le poignard dans le dos sur l'affaire Malvy tandis que L'Offensive morale des Allemands en France pendant la guerre - L'Assaut de l'âme française de Louis Marchand paraîtra en 1920. Dernière copie manuscrite encore retouchée par l'auteur, Léon Daudet a disposé dans son texte de nombreuses coupures de presse et des passages tapuscrits que l'éditeur a intégralement reproduits dans la publication de 1918 (pagination et notes éditoriales au crayon bleu) ; en revanche, trois passages furent censurés (pages 118, 123 et 129 de l'imprimé) relatifs à l'ambassade d'Allemagne, "aux services de Mr. Malvy à la Sureté Générale et à la Préfecture de police" (feuillets manuscrits 82, 85 et 88). Joints : 2 bustes de Léon Daudet sur feuilles volantes 1. daté 1926, gravé par André de Székély de Doba ( [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Photo Album]: Female Student at Lincoln University of Missouri, 1918

      [Jefferson City, Missouri 1918 - Oblong octavo commercial album. Album covers perished, first leaf detached and laid in, pages brittle, good only; the images are well-preserved and about very good. 85 gelatin silver snapshot images in adhesive mounts. Various sizes from 1" x 1.25" to 4.25" x 2.75", some of the margins of the photos have been trimmed, others have been cut into ovals or other shapes for aesthetic reasons. Many prints are captioned, identifying locations and persons shown. A single print with a date of 1918, one with an African-American soldier in a WWI uniform, and another shows a Nash automobile matching circa-1918 models, thus our attribution of the date. An album of views compiled by a female student at Lincoln University, an historically black college in Jefferson City, Missouri. While the images are well-captioned, as usual the compiler's name is unclear (captioned as "me"), although she might have been from Oklahoma, as a few are labeled "Okla. girls" or Okla. girls & boys." Other images are of well-dressed female and male students lounging in a variety of poses both on and off campus, An image of two young women seated with their fingers laced over their knees is captioned "We are vamping kids." Others show a group of women on an outdoor staircase labeled "On Lincoln University farm." Several of the pictures identify teachers or professors, both black and white. There are images of young men next to automobiles, of students playing croquet, one showing a group of women climbing Pike's Peak, presumably.Lincoln was founded in 1866 by African-American Civil War veterans of the 62nd and 65th Regiments United States Colored Troops Infantry (USCT). A rare visual record with content on early women's education at an important black university.

        Lessons of the Revolution by Vladimir Oulianow (N. Lenin), President of the Council of People's Commissars.Translated from the Russian original, with Introduction and Appendix, and published by the Bureau of International Revolutionary Propaganda attached to the Commissariat for Foreign Affairs of the Provisional Workmen's and Peasants' Government of the Russian Republic. Russian Revolutionary Pamphlets.

      Petrograd, "Herold", 1918. - 51 pp. Original staple-stitched printed wrappers. 8vo. English translation of Lenin's article ("Uroki revoliutsii"), written in late July 1917 and first published in mid-September with an added postscript reflecting on the events of August 1917. During a period when the future form of governance was still undecided, Lenin's pamphlet promotes the idea of the "Soviet" (workers' council) rather than parliamentary democracy. Importantly, the appendix presents one of the first English overviews of the new political reality, defining and discussing such terms as the "Essers," "Mensheviks," "Fist (Kulak)," and "Soviet." The booklet was first published in 1917 by the same publisher (34 pp.); the second edition is presumably updated to reflect political developments in the interim. The pamphlet was also reprinted in San Francisco in 1919 by the People's Institute. This 1918 edition is quite scarce, with KVK and OCLC showing copies at the Danish National Library, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Harvard (Houghton Library), and Zurich. - A very good copy of a fragile title.
