        President WilsonÕs Vision For Post-War America

      - American Doughboys began to flood into France in the first half of 1918, and the German command determined to make a major push to gain an advantage in the war before the Americans could make their presence felt. Their offensive did not go well, and in early August a counter-attack by the Allies placed the Germans on the defensive for the bal- ance of the war. So by late August 1918, it was clear that the war would be won, and moreover would end in the fors- eeable future. As victories piled up throughout September, the President was concentrating on negotiations to end the war and the on the need to reor-der world affairs along the lines of his famous 14-points. However, he was also Òthinking deeply about the domestic scene and beginning to consider the shapeof post-war America.The men in the trenches.will return to their homes.and. will demand real thinking and sincere action.ÓWilson started his political career as governor of New Jersey and as such was leader of that stateÕs Democratic Party. He left Washington just a few times during World War I, believing that his personal presence was important to the war effort. In this spirit, he declined, probably with real regret, an invitation to speak at a banquet being held by Democrats in New Jersey in the lead-up to the 1918 election. Instead, he sent this striking message to his old colleagues, one likely to be read to the group. It constitutes his definitive view of how America would need to change as a result of the war.Typed Document Signed as President on White House letterhead, 3 pages, Washington, circa September 1918, to the Toastmaster of the Democratic Reor- ganization Banquet. Wilson started with a summation of his progressive accom- plishments as Governor of New Jersey. ÒI sincerely regret that matters of pressing importance will prevent my taking part.At the same time.I cannot overlook my re- sponsibility as leader of a great party.It is my privilege to point out what I believe to be the duty of the Democrats in New Jersey, now and in the months to come, in order that the exigency of a great hour of crisis may be properly met. During the months that I had the privilege of serving the people of New Jersey in the office of Governor, we sought to accomplish this definite purpose, namely, to open the processes of govern- ment to the access and inspection of every citizen, in order that the people might feel that the Government of New Jersey represented their hopes, their impulses, and their sympathies. It was with this great purpose in mind that we succeeded in establishing electoral machinery which took away from selfish political leaders the power to hold the mass of the party voters of the state in subjection to themselves.In every act of legisla- tion we cut a clear pathway of public service and achieved a record remarkable for its variety and humanity, in every way comprehensive in character and touching no vital interest in the state with a spirit of injustice or demagogy. We gave the people afterPage 69Page 70many tedious and discouraging years of waiting a government which they could feel was their own, free and unhampered by special privilege.ÓWilson continued with a statement about how the war and world situation were bringing dislocation and uncertainty, and would inevitably result in alteration of the national and international landscapes. He saw an urgent and vaguely discomfitting mood among the electorate in the coming post-war era, especially among returning soldiers, who would demand a more democratic and sincere government. ÒA time of grave crisis has come in the life of the Democratic party. Every sign of these terrible days of war and revolutionary change, when economic and social forces are being released upon the world whose effect no political seer dare ven- ture to conjecture, bids us search our hearts through and through and make them ready for the birth of a new day, a day we hope and believe of greater opportunity and greater prosperity for the [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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. This edition was printed to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the posthumous publication of this text and marks the first use of Lucien Pissarro’s Distel type, which is printed in three colors and augmented by various large decorative initials, likely drawn by S. 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."

Very attractive red three-quarter morocco, raised bands, spine handsomely gilt in compartments formed by plain and decorative rules, quatrefoil centerpiece surrounded by densely scrolling cornerpieces, sides and endleaves of rose-colored linen, top edge gilt.

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.

        SPRINGTIDE OF LIFE: POEMS OF CHILDHOOD

      - (RACKHAM,ARTHUR)illus. SPRINGTIDE OF LIFE: POEMS OF CHILDHOOD by Algernon Swinburne. London: Heinemann (1918). 4to, green gilt cloth, near Fine. 1st ed. 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]
