Reverdy, who had not authorized this typographical caprice and was infuriated by it, forced Bernouard to issue a second version of it, in black-and-white"). "Les jockeys camoufles" has sometimes been called Matisses first illustrated book, a claim which is not strictly true, as it incorporates drawings made, in a few cases, years before, between 1903 and 1917.

        Charles A. Lindbergh Photograph Signed to an Aviator/Hero of World War I

      - Charles A. Lindbergh Photograph Signed to an Aviator/Hero of World War I.Before the U.S. got involved in World War I, Alan F. Winslow served with the legendary Lafayette Escadrille in France. In 1918, now an officer in the U.S. ArmyÕs air service, he and Douglas Cambell shot down the first two German airplanes to fall victim to American aviators with General Pershing's expeditionary forces. On August 13, 1918, Winslow was shot down and reported killed in action over France. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. At warÕs end, he was discovered in a German hospital where he had been treated after surviving the crash but losing his arm. After the war, he became assistant chief of Pan American Airways' foreign department.In 1928, a year after his historic flight, Lindbergh became a technical advisor to Pan American Airways, a relationship that would prove long-lasting. While there, he became acquinted with Winslow. An 9 by 12 inch photograph of Lindbergh circa 1928-1932, inscribed and signed ÒTo Mr. and Mrs. Alan F. Winslow, sincerely, Charles A. Lindbergh.Ó The photograph can be approximately dated because WinslowÕs luck finally ran out in 1933, when he died at age 37 in a fall from a third-floor hotel window. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        MOBILIZING WOMAN-POWER. With a Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt.

      The Womans Press,, New York: 1918 - Illustrated with a Frontis & 12 inserted plates. Blatch the daughter of suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who followed in her mother's footsteps by also becoming a leader in the late 19th/early 20th C. women's movement, a writer and an advocate for labor reform. Blatch is credited with reviving & modernizing a suffrage movement which, by the beginning of the 20th century, was listless & flagging; she is also credited with motivating its evolution from a mostly middle & upper class movement to one which exhibited a concern for rights of working women, primarily by her 1907 launching of the Equality League of Self- Supporting Women which held open-air meetings & inaugurated the first suffrage parades. Blatch's style was radical in nature, combining a militant civil disobedience with political activism. The synergy generated her personal energy, daring & political savvy spurred the Suffrage movement on, aiding it in achieving its goal of enfranchising American women with the 1920 passage of the Constitution's 19th Amendment.With the coming of WWI, Blatch directed her formidable personality & energies to aiding the war effort, and this book was written in such a spirit- it describes the European female contribution to fighting the Hun, & exhorts their American counterparts to do no less [NAW, Vol. I]. A solid VG copy (spine slightly darkened, with blue lettering a bit dull/minor extremity wear). Light brown vertically-ribbed cloth stamped in blue, with a decorative frame surrounding the front board title stamping. Crown 8vo. 1st edition. 195 pp. Appendix ('Documents Used in Women's War-Work in England and France'). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Piccadilly Jim

      Herbert Jenkins 1918 - London F/F. After 20 years of looking I now know that there is a least one copy with a full wrapper .There is a mystery about this title and the second printing late 1918 which had print runs of 5,000 and 2,000. Copies should have turned up and over the years I have been lucky and found some rare and possibly unique items but never a sign of this wrapper. Quite by chance a copy has turned up in a UK institution . I have checked auction records over the last 20 years and there has been no copy that I can find that has come onto the market including the Heinemann sale . An interesting item of legendary rarity and unique in design as it is totally different from all later Herbert Jenkins wrappers which follow a pattern of synopsis on rear panel in red ,black or green frame .The wrapper is a reproduction of the original which has been digitally enhanced, and is never likely to ever be put on the market. I have the front panel of the wrapper which was fixed to the endpaper of the Ist and have no doubt that this is the true Ist . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      (Den Haag De Zilverdistel 1918) - Small octavo. 18ff. From an edition of 70 copies, this is one of twenty Roman numeral copies reserved for owners of the Press. This copy was designated for Nelly van Eyck-Benjamin, the wife of Dutch poet Pieter Nicolaas van Eyck, who was one of the founders of the Press. De Zilverdistel is considered the first private press in the Netherlands. The text consists of meditations on the passion of Christ and is one of two books written by Bertken, who was cloistered in a small cell in Utrecht for 57 years.

H. de Roos. Bound in original limp vellum with snowflake design in gilt on upper cover, title gilt on spine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Springtide of Life, The

      London: William Heinemann, 1918. - Signed Limited Edition in the Original Glassine Wrapper[RACKHAM, Arthur, Illustrator]. SWINBURNE, Algernon Charles. The Springtide of Life. Poems of Childhood by Algernon Charles Swinburne. With a Preface by Edmund Gosse. London: William Heinemann, [1918]. Edition Deluxe limited to 765 numbered copies signed by Arthur Rackham (this copy being no. 98). Large quarto (11 1/4 x 9 1/4 inches; 285 x 232 mm.). ix, [1], 132, [2] pp. Nine full color tipped-in plates with captioned tissue guards and fifty-two black and white text illustrations. Publisher's quarter vellum over parchment boards. Front cover and spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Pictorial endpapers. A bright and fine copy in the rare and fragile original glassine dust jacket. The signed limited edition contains one extra colored plate that is not found in the trade edition - the frontispiece."[Rackham's] drawings for Swinburne's poems of childhood, The Springtide of Life attracted the admiration of Edmund Gosse, who expressed his appreciation in a preface and told Rackham personally (18th October 1918: 'This volume will not merely be he best book of the present art-season, but a joy to all sensitive people for years and years to come'" (Hudson, Arthur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 108)."As the close of his life approached, Swinburne frequently expressed his intention to extract from his various volumes those poems which were addressed to children, or were descriptive of child-life, and to publish them in a separate collection. He died without having found occasion to carry out this plan, and he left no directions with regard to the way in which it ought to be done One reason why Swinburne never brought out such a collection was his failure to find an artist who could interpret to his satisfaction the simplicity and freshness of his verses. We are fortunate in having secured, in Mr. Arthur Rackham, one whose delicate and romantic fancy is in sensitive harmony with Swinburne's, and who understands, no less than he did, how "Heaven lies about us in our infancy."

This collection of Swinburne verses written for and about children was published near the end of the four years of horror known as the "War to End All Wars," and its innocent subject matter--not exactly what the bohemian Swinburne was best known for--combined with Rackham's sweet drawings of babies and toddlers constituted just what a war-weary public was seeking. Writer Edmond Gosse told Rackham, "This volume will not merely be the best book of the present art-season, but a joy to all sensitive people for years and years to come." (Hudson) The limited edition had an additional plate (the frontispiece) not included in the trade edition.

Featuring 8 beautiful color plates and 52 b&w's by Rackham. Laid in is a 2 page handwritten signed letter dated February 5, 1930 from Rackham to a Mr. Taylor reading: "Here are the remaining drawings for Mr. Scheuer. You will see there are 23 of them. This number is reached (instead of 16) because in several cases there was more than one drawing on the same sheet of paper and they are now separated. In two cases there were two drawings: and in one, six. The above is now my permanent home address to which all communication had better be addressed as I shall be there much more than at my London studio (where I can be, at any time, by appointment). I wish I had been able to get these drawings to you before this and I very much hope Mr. Scheuer has not been incomvenienced. I need hardly say it has not been possible to do otherwise but I am now back at work again and completely recovered from my operation." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE TALE OF JOHNNY TOWN-MOUSE

      1918 - London: Frederick Warne and Co., n.d. [1918]. Original light brown paper-covered boards with pictorial onlay. First Edition of this tale which Beatrix Potter adapted from Aesop's "The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse"; she dedicated it "To Aesop in the shadows." One of her later tales, it is one of the few tales for which the first edition title page is undated.~Much has been made of the presence or absence of the "N" in "LONDON" on the title page (this copy does have the "N"). The first printing, which was done in 1918, had some copies with the "N" and some without it; it has been surmised, for example by Linder, that the first copies off the press lacked the "N", meaning that it was added during the print run; however, it is just as possible that the "N" dropped off during the print run. Either way, which copies were the first to be printed has no bearing on which copies were the first to be published (issued to the public).~This is a fine copy (one tiny hint of wear at a corner, but otherwise as nice as one could hope for). Linder p. 430; Quinby 25. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Red One [RARE Advance Copy for Review]

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1918. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of a rare Advance Copy for the first edition, first printing (small chip to the spine head's overhang, spine relaid with some excess glue showing at the rear gutter, a bit of rubbing at the board corners -- otherwise Fine for this fragile title and lacking the quite scarce dust jacket), complete with the undated advertisements; a collection of four Jack London short stories written by him as he grew closer to death and published posthumously. Only 5,342 copies were printed and, due to the low number of copies produced and the delicateness of the volume's paper-covered boards, copies in collectable condition have become quite scarce. As noted above, this is a rare Publisher's Advance Copy for Review with the Publisher's perforated statement thereof to the title page. As the number of copies produced was rather low for a London book, we expect that, in comparison to his other works, correspondingly fewer Advance Copies were produced. As only a few Advance Copies likely were produced, and as the publication was quite a delicate one, we anticipate that Advance Copies are RARE, and are especially so when in a condition as nice as is this copy. Having a notable Provenance, this copy belonged to noted London collector Willard S. Morse whose bookplate resides on the front pastedown and whose collection slip has been tipped in to the rear pastedown showing bibliographic information for the book on both the slip's recto and on its verso. An altogether Very Good + copy of a book quite difficult to find in a condition as nice as is this copy made rarer still by its being an ADVANCE COPY FOR REVIEW and enhanced by its having such an excellent Provenance. QUITE SCARCE TO RARE.

        LES JOCKEYS CAMOUFLES

      se trouve à la Belle Edition, Paris 1918 - EDITION ORIGINALE illustrée de 5 dessins hors texte d'¿Henri Matisse. Les 3 poèmes sont respectivement imprimés en vert, orange et bleu, la couverture en noir et bleu, les dessins et le reste de l'ouvrage en noir. Tirage à 343 exemplaires. Un des 300 numérotés sur vergé d'Arches. ¤¤¤¤¤ C¿est en 1912, deux ans après son arrivée à Paris que Reverdy fait la connaissance de Matisse avec qui il devient ami. Après la guerre, le poète le sollicite pour l'illustration de son sixième livre LES JOCKEYS CAMOUFLES : «Vous déplairait-il d'illustrer de deux ou trois dessins de vous (petits ou grands) une plaquette de moi : 3 poèmes assez long en 32 pages ? Il est évident qu'en acceptant vous me rendriez un très agréable service. Mais qu'aucune considération ne vous gêne pour refuser si cela ne vous convient pas». Le peintre répond favorablement et lui confie à reproduire au cliché-trait cinq dessins réalisés entre 1903 et 1917. Le livre parait en décembre 1918, publié par François Bernouard qui en a semble-t-il quelque peu hâté la sortie au grand mécontentement de Reverdy qui écrit à Matisse : «Au dernier, Bernouard s'est mis en tête d¿aller vite, trop vite et pour ça ou pour une autre raison il n'a pas attendu que je vienne corriger les dernières épreuves : titre, achevé d'imprimer, liste des ouvrages du même auteur, justification du tirage. Or tout cela est rempli de fautes, de fantaisies ridicules du crû de Bernouard [.] et enfin et surtout la première page est rédigée absolument contre nos conventions du début. C¿est-à-dire que je ne voulais pas de rose comme motif, ni du mot Monsieur devant les noms d¿auteur. Pas plus du reste que dans l¿achever d'imprimer l'hommage au roi d'Italie !!! [.] Mais dans cet état de chose il ne me restait plus qu'un parti à prendre c'était de faire paraître moi-même le livre. C¿est ce que j'ai fait». Reverdy fait donc recomposer le livre chez Birault, son imprimeur habituel qui sort une nouvelle édition en noir le 30 décembre, tout en gardant les mêmes dessins de Matisse. Si Bernouard avait bien tenu compte des exigences de Reverdy pour la couverture de l'ouvrage où figure une presse comme motif et sans le mot Monsieur, il est vrai que le titre est lui composé tout à fait différemment. Et l'impression en couleurs, achevée «pour l'arrivée de S.M. le roi d'Italie» déplut fortement à l'auteur. Cette édition originale ne fut cependant pas retirée de la vente, car l'éditeur la proposait toujours sur son catalogue de mars 1920. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
