        Amorum Libri Tres

      Marees Gesellschaft, R. Piper & Co. Verlag, 1918. First Limited Edition Thus. Full Pigskin (Full Leather), with custom slipcase. Near Fine. No. 162 of 200, with one of 150 on hand-made paper of Wiggins, Teape & Co. 240 copies in all were made, including unnumbered copies (212 were numbered in one of two ways). 4to. (27 by 20 cm.) 282, [5] pp. The outstanding aspects of this edition and copy in which Ovid's verse is rendered in both Latin and German translation are magnificent decorative pigskin binding, the flowing type, and the elegant page decoration, which includes a huge variety of cameo images. These images are never repeated exactly, it should also be noted. Resulting is a book of extraordinary beauty, both exterior and interior-wise. Aesthetically the book production is true to the classical in its lines and sensibility while being securely of its own time when a sinuous Art Nouveau or Jugendstil was ripening into a modernist economy, or Art Deco. There are sensuous Rococo details, such as the gilt lines etched into the spine, while one can not but be impressed with the lack of clutter on each and every page! While the type is not a plain Roman or the like, the gentle curvature of the cursive invites and soothes the eye, and every word should be crisply clear to the modern reader. Light soiling and darkening on the spine. Clean and tight within. The slipcase has some wear.

        Original signed photographic portrait;

      [Eton: , 1918-21]. presented together with signed photographic portraits of Orwell's Eton set, including: Cyril Connolly, Godfrey Meynell, Denys King-Farlow, Denis Dannreuther, James Gibson, Ralph M. Cazalet, Roger Mynors, Bobbie Longden, Maurice Whittome, and an unidentified "Peter" and "Ronnie". Large sheet of thick sugar paper, recto with 12 mounted monochrome photographic portraits, each signed and (but for one) dated between 1918 and 1921, verso with 22 photographic prints, a collage of Godfrey Meynell childhood and family photographs. Paper mount a little creased and frayed, two closed tears to right edge, one or two photos trimmed effecting the signatures (not the Orwell). Excellent. An exceptionally rare signed photograph of George Orwell (signed "Eric A. Blair, '21"), presented as one of 12 signed photographs of his Eton College friends, collectively making up one side of a two-sided photo-collage assembled by (?the family of) Godfrey Maynall MC VC (1904-35), one of the twelve. The boys are: James Arthur Walker Gibson (later Lincoln's Inn barrister), Denis Sigmund Dannreuther (Captain of School, later Baliol Scholar, Fellow of All Souls, and barrister engaged in drafting Parliamentary legislation), Ralph Mirrielees Cazalet (later Kings College, then to Egypt for Shell Oil), Robert Paton Longden (later Oxford classicist and Master of Wellington), Roger Aubrey Baskerville Mynors (later Oxford Professor of Latin), Godfrey Meynell (more of him below), Maurice Gordon Whittome (later Corpus Cambridge, barrister, and Sir), Hugh St. Denys King-Farlowe (editor of The Chronicle, the wit of the year, and the prettiest of the bunch), Cyril Connolly himself (author of Enemies of Promise, 1938, the canonical chronicle of the post-War generation at Eton), Eric Arthur Blair (a.k.a. "George Orwell"), and an unidentified "Ronnie" and "Peter". All these (with the exception of Connolly, Meynell and the unidentified two) are Eton scholars from the "Election" of 1916. Connolly and Meynell were scholars from the 1917 Election, the year below, though evidently friends with their seniors. The signatures are dated between 1918 and 1921 (which was the final year of the 1916 Election). Gibson, Dannreuther, Cazalet, Longden, and Mynors are remembered by Cyril Connoly as "the Caucus", the "moral leaders" of the year, "scholar-athletes" with grand reputations who were notable for attempting to renovate the illiberal mores of Eton College in the wake of World War I. The existence of this collection of more-or-less uniform signed photographic portraits of these Eton contemporaries is explained by knowledge of an Eton tradition: boys would have their portrait taken (there was a local portrait photographer advertised in the Eton magazine), sign them, and gift them to their close friends. The tradition may seem somewhat perculiar now, even a little amorous (as sometimes of course it was), but it was at the time so common as to have been called a "fashion" by Connolly, who makes amusing mention of the practice in Enemies of Promise: "It was the fashion to have photographs of friends signed and put on the mantelpiece. I had sent Nigel mine. He refused to give me his. I took one, and he said I had stolen it. I collected photos after that like an old hostess collecting celebrities. I cultivated anyone who was a rarity, or who had not been taken, persuading them to get done for me, and rushing off with the scalp." This photo-collage derives from the family of Godfrey Meynell, and as such Meynell can be understood to have been friendly with (or at least admired, and at most loved) each of the boys here presented, Orwell included. Eric Blair (who adopted the pen-name George Orwell in the early 1930s), though certainly far from working-class and not even really milddle-class, was not ostensibly "one of" the usual Eton sort. His parents had little money, and he had to win scholaships to get himself through public school. His own pronounced sense of isolation and difference (and the potent observational perspective thus afforded) typifies a significant portion of Orwell's character as a writer. He notably had a horrible time at his prep-school St Cyprians (as related in his sardonically-titled "Such, Such Were the Joys", though he did first meet Cyril Connolly there), but flourished at Eton under the radical umbrage of the "Caucus", given an arena to cut his political teeth in the marginally more open post-War environment, as a writer for the school magazine and a leading voice in the College Debating Society. He presented himself as a vociferous socialist waging a one-man war from within the bastion of upper-class privilege, and his photograph here sees him deliberately distinguishing himself in a tweed jacket and tie (the others are all wearing the Eton uniform of tailcoat and white bow-tie). Though Orwell did not maintain any significant contact with his Eton friends after leaving the College, this collection of photographs nonetheless serves as a reminder of the small but select group of friends that Eric Blair did have, and a reminder too that Blair was not perhaps such a radical loner as he may have preferred others to remember. Many of Connolly's "Caucus" were, at least in Eton terms, as politically radical as Blair. For example, it was Dannreuther, as Captain of School, who opposed the ancient ethos of corporal punishment, was praised by Connolly for his "fearless intellectual justice", and who claimed in his 1922 "Retrospective" to have "substituted a more harmonious system of government for the old methods of repression and spite". There is some poignancy to be felt in considering that the central "Caucus" ethos of radically attempting to revise Eton's heritage of systematic militarism (notably opposing the Officer Training Corps, a traditionally entrenched institution of the College), did nothing to avert Godfrey Meynell (whose album this was) from following automatically in the footsteps of his army-officer father. On leaving school, Meynell went to Sandhurst, joined the army, volunteered into British India, and in 1935 died heroically in the Kyber Pass on the North-West Frontier, commanding a tiny scout troup of about 30 men, defending two Lewis guns against the advance of an overwhelmingly larger enemy force. The encounter was reportedly Thermopulaean in the proportion of casualties on either side, and according to regimental records Meynell died in hand-to-hand fighting, even attempting to defend his dead comrades from mutliation (the custom of the Mohmand tribesmen) before succumbing to his mortal wounds. He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. Meynell was buried in Mardan, in modern Pakistan. As such this photo collage may well have been put together by his family as a substitute grave, a commemorative shrine to their dead son celebrating on the one side his (rather sullen-seeming) childhood, and on the other his glory days at Eton, a friend of the famous "Caucus" scholars of the upper year, and also of Blair and Connolly, who by the time of Meynall's death had both just published their first novels. An excellent piece, the signed photograph of Orwell being unique in our experience (and exceptionally appealing thus early), evoking in a highly revealing way Orwell's pre-"Orwell" origins.

      1918. Aquarellierte und Goldbronze gehöhte Lithographie, 1918, auf feinem Japan, monogrammiert. 20,2:14,5 cm. Eins von 5 - 6 Exemplaren, die unterschiedlich aquarelliert sind.. 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.

        Hunger Breeds Madness--Woodrow Wilson: America's Food Must Save the World [poster]

      (N.-pl.): United States Food Administration, [ca. 1918-1919]. Poster Poster. Very Good. Roughly 20 by 30.25 inches. Stone lithograph printed by Schmidt Litho in San Francisco. Produced late in the First World War or soon after the armistice, the poster promoted the US Food Administration (USFA), led by Herbert Hoover, which was responsible for feeding most of Europe in the immediate aftermath of the war. The image depicts a European city in the background and a family in the foreground. A woman sits slumped over her dead or dying child, an empty bowl at her feet. The boy's father stands, fist clenched, a torch in the other hand, staring at the city. President Wilson's quote, 'Hunger breeds madness' and the image suggests anarchy if Europe is allowed to starve. Grebs (1877-1964), a native of Germany, was the San Francisco art director for Foster and Kleiser Co., which produced this poster for the USFA. He also taught commercial illustration at the California School of Fine Arts (alongside Maynard Dixon), lectured at Stanford, and later headed his own commercial graphics firm. Mounted on linen. A few small tears have been repaired in the margins. With a few small areas of abrasion where the surface was apparently cleaned, mostly in the printed border.

In his portrait you see the wound stripes on his sleeve that he acquired while he was leading his men in the capture of Hills 242 and 288 and at Cote-de-Chatillion as a Brigade Commander. For these exploits he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and, so I was told, at the same time, a threat that if he did not keep away from the front line of battle he would be sent home.

        'Hey Fellows!' Your Money Brings the Book We Need When We Want It

      (N.-pl.): American Library Association, 1918. Poster Poster. Near Fine. Roughly 20.25 by 29.75 inches. Stone lithograph in three colors. Perhaps the most famous book-related poster, produced by the ALA Committee on Public Information, Division of Pictorial Publicity for the United War Work Campaign, scheduled for the Week of November 11, 1918. The campaign united the ALA, the YWCA, the YMCA, the Jewish Welfare Board, and other civic organizations with a goal of raising $170 million to support American soldiers deployed in Europe. As the start date approached and the end of the war seemed near (as it happened, the armistice went into effect on the first day of the campaign), the emphasis shifted to the year or more that the army would remain in Europe securing the peace. The artist was a popular commercial illustrator who worked for several newspapers and provided cover art to the Saturday Evening Post and other magazines. Linen-backed. Other than a few small creases in the upper right border and a bit of evidence of surface cleaning, this is a fine example of a classic poster.

      1918. [1 of 25 copies] London: Privately printed by Clement Shorter, August 1918. Original grey wrappers. First Edition, being #8 of only 25 copies "for private distribution among my friends". This piece appeared that same month (August 1918) in the periodical Reveille. In it Conrad recalls what it was like, exactly four years earlier, when "the first news" of the outbreak of war reached his home town of Cracow, Poland. This was the second of the six very-limited issues that Clement Shorter produced for Conrad (the first had been ONE DAY MORE). The limitation page of this copy bears Shorter's initials and the number "VIII"; we have had two other copies, over the years, that were signed by Shorter but did not have an inked-in copy number.~This is an unopened copy, in fine condition (slightly irregular along some leaves' fore-edge, but that is a natural feature of this hand-made paper). With the discreet bookplate of amazing Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger. Cagle A23. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        TOSCA, LA (1918)

      Italy 1918 - Vintage original 39 x 105" (100 x 270 cm.) poster, Italy. Olga Benetti, Frecesca Bertini, Vittoir Bianchi, Luigi Cigoli, Alfredo De Antoni, dir: Alfredo De Antoni; Caesar Film. Italian version of the famous story based on the Victorian Sardou play, a print of which is still in existence. A stunning art nouveau style portrait of star Francesca Bertini as Floria Tosca. This prolific star of the Italian cinema, one of film's first true divas, was also a writer and director. She made the first of her 140 films in 1907 and her last in 1976 (most were made before 1935), Bertolucci's 1900. Bertini was the ultimate diva of 1910s era Italian film, the most celebrated and most adulated of Italian movie actresses of her generation. She married count Paul Cartier, and lived a life of luxury till her passing at the age of 103. Poster is by Tito Corbella (1885-1966), a famous painter noted for portraits, nudes, and also for his now highly collected Art Deco postcard designs, As was often the case with early silent posters, there is no title, because the poster would then be exported to numerous different countries. Poster is on linen. This rare poster has been professionally conserved and now displays like new, on linen. VERY GOOD.

        Autograph letter signed mentioning his Kunstformen der Natur

      Jena, 1918. Jena, 1918. <p>Haeckel, Ernst (1834-1919). Autograph letter signed, in German, to Mrs. Wilhelmine Storch-Kuhlmann. Jena, April 8, 1918. 2pp. 223 x 142 mm.</p><p>Letter from the German biologist and comparative anatomist Haeckel, promoter of Darwin&#39;s work in Germany, and coiner of numerous biological terms including phylum, phylogeny, and ecology. Haeckel proposed the kingdom Protista (another of his original coinages) to cover simple one-celled or multi-celled organisms that cannot be classed as fungi, animals or plants. He originated the controversial recapitulation theory proposing a link between an organism&#39;s individual development and evolution, summed up in the phrase "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny." He was a prolific author and an accomplished artist; one of his most famous illustrated works, Kunstformen der Natur (1904), is mentioned in this letter.</p><p>The letter can be translated as follows:</p><p>You have given me great pleasure with your kind greetings of spring from your garden which you sent me yesterday with your dear little daughter. Vividly they took me back to the times of 30-40 years ago when your ingenious teacher Otto Devrient charmed us with his adaptation of Faust and in which you yourself as an exceptional artist gave special glamour to his original and much admired Luther Festival.</p><p>Allow me, as a modest expression of my heartfelt thanks, to send you enclosed my monistic essay "Gott-Natur" (1914) which might interest you in regard to the special reference to Goethe (especially pages 56-61) and the "Synoptischen Tabellen" (pages 64-67).</p> Since your dear daughter showed interest in my "Kunstformen der Natur" during her Sunday visit, I am enclosing a fascicle of it (with ten plates) for her. With repeated best thanks and cordial regards, yours truly, Ernst Haeckel.</p><p>The German actor and playwright Otto Devrient (1838-94) was particularly famous for his staging of Goethe&#39;s Faust. Haeckel&#39;s Kunstformen der Natur, consisting of 100 colored lithograph prints of various organisms, was originally issued in set of 10 plates between 1899 and 1904; it was issued in book form in the latter year. Gott-Natur, published in 1914, is a study of monistic religion.</p>
