In search of action O'Brien crossed the border into Canada and signed up with the Royal Flying Corps, sailing to Britain in early 1917 for training. In July 1917 he was posted to 66 Squadron in France, and within a month he had been shot down and captured having crashed behind German lines. After his initial interrogation he was sent to the officers' camp at Courtrai, before being transferred to a camp in Germany via Ghent, but en route he managed to escape from a moving train. Making his way through Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland he returned to England in November 1917, covering the 320 miles in around two and half months. He was gazetted for the Military Cross, and had an interview with the King at Buckingham Palace before returning to America where this book was published early in 1918, with O'Brien undertaking a promotional tour in support of it. Loosely inserted newslipping in this copy promotes two nights at Carnegie Hall; "The Wildest Tales of Fiction, Fable and Fancy Outdone in Real Life". Uncommon in the jacket, and particularly attractive signed.

His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors, and the Alhambra. Irving also served as the U. S. minister to Spain from 1842 to 1846. He made his literary debut in 1802 with a series of observational letters to the Morning Chronicle, written under the pseudonym Jonathan Oldstyle. After moving to England for the family business in 1815, he achieved international fame with the publication of The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. in 1819. He continued to publish regularlyand almost always successfullythroughout his life. Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe, and Irving encouraged American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Edgar Allan Poe. Irving was also admired by some European writers, including Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Thomas Campbell, Francis Jeffrey, and Charles Dickens. As America's first genuine internationally best-selling author, Irving advocated for writing as a legitimate profession, and argued for stronger laws to protect American writers from copyright infringement.

Heath Robinson, who was an English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of eccentric machines. In two volumes complete. Franois Rabelais (c. 1494- 9 April 1553) was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor, Renaissance humanist, monk and Greek scholar. He has historically been regarded as a writer of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, bawdy jokes and songs. His best known work is Gargantua and Pantagruel. The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel is a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century by Franois Rabelais. It is the story of two giants, a father (Gargantua) and his son (Pantagruel) and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein. The text features much crudity, scatological humour, and violence. Lists of explicit or vulgar insults fill several chapters. The censors of the Sorbonne stigmatised it as obscene, and in a social climate of increasing religious oppression, it was dealt with with suspicion, and contemporaries avoided mentioning itWith letters written by Francis Rabelais M.

        Autograph letter signed, dated London, August 2, 1819, to his friend and editor Henry Brevoort

      Some minor damp stains; in very good condition.. See the Letters of Washington Irving to Henry Brevoort, (New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1918) page 317, which only partially transcribes the letter. Two pages, 8.5 x 7.5 inch plain stationery, approximately 270 words. With the original single sheet folded to make an envelope with Irving's return address and Brevoort?s New York address. A fine example of one of the many recorded letters from Washington Irving to his lifelong friend, Henry Brevoort, a correspondence which began in 1808 and lasted until the early 1840s. Brevoort played an important role in the editing and publication of the Sketch Book, which began with a letter Irving wrote to Brevoort from London in March 1819, asking him to be his agent in New York regarding the publication of his new series of articles. Soon after Irving began sending installments, via Brevoort, for the printer and publisher. The first part was published in May, 1819, and by the time of this letter, four months later, Irving had just sent along the fourth part. He comments on the slow pace of getting the next part completed, and part five was indeed not published until December 1819. The final two parts appeared in February and August of 1820. The only published version of this letter we located (noted above) inaccurately transcribes a few words (Irving's holograph is difficult) and does not include the final four sentences. "My dear Brevoort / I forward Sketch Book No. 4 to my / brother E. Irving. I find in the printer's copy of no. 1 / three or four inaccuracies in language in addition to those / already pointed out, but I have not the number by me / to correct them. These errors will take place whenever / an author has not the advantage of correcting the proofs / where he sees his sentences fairly printed / and brought out in a final compass under his eye. I wish / you would keep an eye to see that grammatical inaccuracies do not occur. I often alter / my sentences after they are written out, which is apt / to make these errors. I send the present number with reluctance for / it has grown exceeding stale with me, part of it / laid out by me during a time that I was out of spirits and could not compleat it. So much time has elapsed how- / ever that I dare not delay any longer. I shall / endeavor to get up another number immediately having / had much of the material prepared. Should you at any time / think any article is insufficient as to be likely to / affect the reputation of the work you may use your / discretion in omitting it, & delaying the number / until the arrival of my next number, out of which / you can take an article to supply the deficiency. / I write in great haste, and am as ever / Affectionately yours / W. I.

        Iraq in War-Time

      Basrah: Printed and Engraved at the Government Press, Basrah. Published by Superintendent, Governmemt Press, c.1918. Basrah: Printed and Engraved at the Government Press, Basrah. Published by Superintendent, Governmemt Press,, c.1918. Quarto. Original blue-green cloth, title in English gilt to the upper board within a stylized Baghdad roof-scape including minaret, and to the lower board in Arabic, grey-blue endpapers. Illustrated profusely throughout from photographs, captions in English and Arabic. A little rubbed and spotted, marginal fingersoiling, a few short splits, now professionally repaired, and small chips, but overall a very good copy. First edition of the first photographically illustrated book on Iraq and Central Arabia. Uncommon, OCLC shows just 2 copies of this first edition, BL and University of Canterbury, NZ, COPAC suggests copies at Durham and Oxford, IWM lists two copies. A second edition was issued in 1919. The last part "A Tour Through Central Arabia" features pictures that "were taken by a British officer touring through Central Arabia with an escort of Arabs". The officer in question was Harry St. John Philby, who at the time was attached to the Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force as Sir Percy Cox's personal assistant, but "failing to get on with Cox's deputy, Arnold Wilson, he contrived to have himself sent, in November 1917, as head of a mission to Ibn Sa'ud, ruler of the Nejd in central Arabia, whom the British were keen to woo into an attack on the Rashids of Ha'il, allies of the Turks. He travelled with a small party by camel from the coast of the Persian Gulf to Riyadh. There he spent ten days and was deeply impressed by the personality of Ibn Sa'ud. It was the start of an admiration that stayed with him for life.

        Small Archive of Vernacular Photographs of the 28th Reunion of the United Confederate Veterans at Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1918. Includes Images of an African-American Confederate Veteran

      Tulsa, Oklahoma: Unpublished, 1918. A collection of 30 vernacular photographs of the 28th Reunion of the United Confederate Veterans held in 1918 at Tulsa, Oklahoma. The photographs measure 2.5" x 3.5". Almost all photographs are annotated, some on the front and some on the reverse. None of the individuals pictured are identified by name. There are 16 different images; 14 of the images have duplicate photos. Two of the images identify one veteran as an "ex-slave." (On March 13, 1865, the Confederate Congress passed General Order 14 which authorized the induction of slaves into the Confederate Army, and U.S. census records of 1890 record over 3,200 African Americans who claimed to have served as Confederate soldiers.) Many of the other images show veterans carrying Confederate Battle, Regimental, and Reunion flags. . Photographs. Very Good.

        THE TALE OF JOHNNY TOWN-MOUSE.

      Original grey boards with mounted illustration.Original printed dust-wrapper. First edition. First issue, but with the 'N' in London. Wrapper chipped and worn; little bumped at top outer corner; else a near fine copy. The title-page of this work is undated, but a First Edition of December 1918 can be determined by the absence of Ltd from Warne's imprint on the title-page. The second printing was issued in June 1919, when Ltd was added to the imprint. Much is made of the missing N from London that some copies have. Clearly, this printing error does not constitute a separate edition, it merely attests that a number of the first printing escaped from the press before the error was spotted.

"During the past fourteen years I have been an eye-witness of events in Russia, and able to study at first-hand the manifold aspects of Reaction and Revolution, as each in its turn was exploited by our relentless foe. I was the only non-Russian civilian who participated in all the phases of the collapse of Socialism as a national force in July last during the short-lived offensive and disastrous retreat of the armies in Galicia, which was also the death-knell of the Revolution. The men who have figured in Russian affairs during that long period are personally known to me, and thanks to my relations with the Army, I have been able to study the Russian soldier under all conditions of service."- from Foreword.

        The Munitions Miracle

      National War Aims Committee, London 1918 - This exceptionally rare speech pamphlet contains the speech of 25 April 1918 Churchill delivered in the House of Commons as Minister of Munitions during the First World War. This is the only copy we know of in private ownership. Churchill began the First World War as the powerful First Lord of the Admiralty, but was scapegoated for the Dardanelles disaster and forced out in May 1915. By November 1915, Churchill was serving at the Front, spending part of his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. His May 1916 return to London saw "no upsurge in his political fortunes" and left him criticizing the war effort from an unaccustomed "position of political weakness and personal isolation" much as he would two decades later on the eve of the Second World War. (Gilbert, Vol. III) By May 1917 there was growing parliamentary opposition to the Government. "Lloyd George knew that Churchill's aim was to return to a position of authority, but that if no place were found for him, he would continue to attack the Government's war policy." (Gilbert, Vol. IV, p.15) Whether for Churchill's talents, desire to silence him, or both, Lloyd George began to consult and consider Churchill. Newspaper editorials inveighed against Churchill and several Ministers vigorously objected. Nonetheless, on 16 July 1917 Churchill accepted the post of Minister of Munitions. True to form, he proved "eager to involve himself in as wide a range of discussions as possible" (Gilbert, Vol. IV, p.32) and implemented major reorganization of his Ministry. By April 1918, Churchill commanded an optimized Ministry and was asserting exactly the sort of influence his detractors resented. Returning from a tour of the French Front to the onset of a major German offensive, on 18 April Churchill sent his Prime Minister a lengthy memorandum analyzing the strategic decisions which would have to be taken if the offensive continued. (Gilbert, Vol. IV, p.106) A week later, on 25 April, Churchill spoke for an hour and a half in the House of Commons about the military crisis and munitions production, offering what he called 'a fairly good report' detailing the Ministry's ability to replace and often exceed losses of guns, aircraft, and tanks. Churchill specifically praised the nearly three quarters of a million women employed under his Ministry at the time. "It is a striking fact that more than nine-tenths. of the whole manufacture of the shells. of the British Artillery, are due to the labours of women." Concluding, perhaps Churchill spoke for himself as much as for his Ministry: "instead of quarrelling, giving way as we do from time to time to moods of pessimism and irritation, we ought to be thankful that if such trials and dangers were destined for our country we are here to share them, and to see them slowly and surely overcome." Despite persistent detractors, Churchill would prevail in his difficult return to power, assuming control of the War Office as Secretary of State for War and Air by January 1919. This pamphlet publication of Churchill's 25 April 1918 House of Commons speech was issued by the National War Aims Committee, apparently as No. 1 in their "British Effort Series". Like Churchill, it is a remarkable survivor. Ronald Cohen notes only institutional copies in his Bibliography. The pamphlet is printed on off-white pulp stock, measures 6.5 x 3 inches, is bound in wire-stitched self-wrappers, and is 16 pages. Pages 2-15 bear Churchill's speech. Recognizing the women Churchill praised, the front cover illustration is a woman beside an enormous artillery shell. Condition is near-fine, complete with no loss or tears and virtually no wear. Both binding staples remain firmly attached, showing only modest rust. The covers are slightly age-toned and lightly soiled at the extremities. The contents remain clean and bright. We note no previous ownership marks. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A51, Woods A26. [Attributes: First Edition]

Äußerst seltene Hefte des "Zwiestrolchs", der vom Münchner Verleger Ernst Heimeran (1902-1955) 1917 als Gymnasiast gegründeten Zeitschrift. Insgesamt erschienen drei Jahrgänge. Ernst Heimeran in seinem Buch "Büchermachen": "Wieso 'Zwiestrolch'? Der Geleitgruß sagt darüber: 'Der Zwiestrolch, eine Zwiegestalt aus Geist und Witz geboren, hat, wie man sagt, in dieser Zeit das Lebensrecht verloren' usw. Soviel ich mich erinnere, verhielt es sich indessen so, daß Wolf (d.i. Wolfgang von Weber) unter seinen Skizzen zwei Strolche vorrätig hatte, und daß wir fanden ,die paßten gut für ein Titelblatt. Ergo nannten wir einfachheitshalber die Zeitschrift gleich nach der vorhandenen Zeichnung." Laut Angabe im Heft des 2. Jahrgangs wurden "als Mitarbeiter nur Jugendliche unter 20 Jahren aufgenommen. ... Honorare werden nicht gezahlt; bei Annahme eines Bildes, zweier Gedichte oder eines sonstigen Beitrages über 2 Druckseiten, wird ein Freiexemplar geliefert."
