        How They Went To School [Illustrated by the author]. OUTSTANDING COPY IN SOLANDER CASE

      Blackie and Son, n.d. [1918?] 1918 Oblong 8vo., [Second Edition?], with a fine coloured frontispiece, 23 charming coloured plates and pictorial endpapers in blue, child's pencilled inscription on blank preliminary recto; original paper boards, coloured illustration (repeated as first plate) mounted on upper board) skilfully rebacked in green cloth to style, boards very lightly frayed without significant loss, an outstanding, virtually spotless copy housed in custom-made green cloth solander case with back lettered in gilt. Arguably the finest work for children written and illustrated by Praeger. It was first published by Blackie in 1903 (see BL 12812.a.1) with a second printing in 1918 (BL 12802.aa.11). There was apparently a later US edition published by Stokes in New York. The fact that this copy is published in Blackie's 'Tiny Tots' series inclines us to the view that this is the work's second appearance (1918). Sophia Rosamund [not 'Rosamond' as here printed] Praeger (1867-1954) was the younger sister of the naturalist Robert Lloyd Praeger. Born in Holywood, Co. Down, she was educated at Sullivan School, the Belfast School of Art and the Slade in London. Renowned for her work as children's writer and illustrator, and also as a sculptor of international fame, she was appointed President of the Ulster Academy and received the MBE in 1927. THIS WORK IS EXTREMELY SCARCE IN ANY EDITION. Its survival in this condition (now protected in solander case) is extraordinary and makes this a quite outstanding copy.

        Geist der Utopie

      Munich,: Duncker & Humblot,, 1918.. Octavo, uncut and largely unopened; a superb copy in lightly worn paper wrappers, gilt decorations to front cover, preserved in morocco-backed cloth box. First edition of Bloch's first book, and rare. Bloch's treatise on the utopian spirit is the foundation work of his long career investigating utopia: Manuel called him 'the most famous contemporary commentator on the utopian propensity.'Geist der Utopie sketches out Bloch's belief in the overcoming of alienation through utopia, particularly through his formulation of the 'Not-Yet-Conscious.' Moreover, it presents a vigorous call to move past Romantic Sehnsucht (regret at the impossibility of rationality) and to build impossibly towards the horizon: 'Nun haben wir zu beginnen.' Although for some time relatively unknown in the English-speaking world, the 1995 publication of The Principle of Hope by MIT heralded a renewed interest in Bloch, and saw him assume an intellectual position alongside his better known friends and colleagues Walter Benjamin and George Lukacs. Geist der Utopie has finally been released in English translation by Stanford University Press.Bloch (1885-1977) was one of the great Marxist philosophers of the twentieth century. Exiled to the United States in 1933, he returned to Leipzig in 1948 to become professor of philosophy. Although the publication of the early volumes of his major work, Das Princip Hoffnung, was greeted with enthusiasm, the reception of the third and final volume was negative, indeed, it was deemed to be suspect and un-marxist. By 1961 his position had deteriorated to such a point that he was once more forced to flee, this time becoming professor at T¸bingen in then West Germany.

        THE RED ONE

      1918. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1918. 6 pp undated ads. Original brown paper-covered boards pictorially decorated in black, blue and orange, with dust jacket. First Edition of this collection of four tales (the title one is a science fiction tale, involving a wrecked alien spacecraft worshipped by Melanesian natives) -- which consisted of only 5,342 copies, a very low number for London&#39;s books. By the time Jack wrote these (in Hawaii, in early 1916), he was dying.~What Jack still tried to hide from her [Charmian], or what she still tried to hide from herself, was just how sick he was. He kept a brave face on things, pretending laziness instead of illness, and he slept apart from her, in order to attend to his own wants and drug injections during the nights...~His recognition of his dependence on Charmian and Eliza [his half-sister] and Joan [his daughter], his laying to rest his father&#39;s rejection of him, his Jungian discovery that his nightmares might be the good myths of his unconscious, all helped Jack to write some of his better short stories in the last months of his life. He no longer identified himself with young Anglo-Saxon heroes braving the frozen wastes and bullying the lesser breeds, but with aged Hawaiian natives telling the tales and myths of their past to skeptical foreigners. Most of the stories in ON THE MAKALOA MAT and THE RED ONE are of ancient wisdom confounding modern materialism...~Jack reached down into his own unconscious and his knowledge that death was near, and set it boldly on the page. The most haunting of his final stories was "The Red One." In it, an explorer is dying slowly, in the hut of an old shaman in cannibal Melanesia. The explorer has passed through all the stages of savagery himself, and he waits for his inevitable death from the shaman&#39;s knife as he watches the old witch doctor cure the heads of other white men... Only one mystery remains unsolved, the melodious siren call that has lured the explorer into his particular heart of darkness... What the truth was, the story does not tell -- only that, in the total dichotomy between the hallucinatory message from the stars and the utter savagery of men, the boundaries of Jack&#39;s split personality lay. At last, he had the courage and awareness to declare himself, as he prepared for his own death. [Sinclair]~THE RED ONE, fairly scarce in any event due to the small number of copies, is quite difficult to find in collectible condition because it is bound in paper-covered boards rather than cloth. This copy is just about fine, unusually clean and bright, with the slightest of wear at the foot of the spine. The scarce dust jacket, with the frontispiece portrait of Jack, is in very good condition (price cut out of spine, minor edgewear). Sisson & Martens p. 98; Blanck 11977. Housed in a cloth clamshell case with leather label.

        American Expeditionary Forces Tank Corps Archive

      Camp Colt, PA and France: Fletcher, Private Robert G., 1918. This is a terrific grouping of World War I postal history from Private Robert G. Fletcher of Birmingham, Alabama that documents the birth of the U.S. Army&#39;s Armor Branch. Highlights of this collection of 16 postcards and covers with letters include two rare Treat &#39;Em Rough envelopes, one rare Treat &#39;Em Rough letterhead, one rare Tank Corps Camp Colt envelope, one rare AEF Christmas package mailing coupon, and two scarce American Red Cross &#39;postal&#39; handstamps. Private Fletcher&#39;s dog tags are included as well. Fletcher was drafted in March of 1918, and by early May he had reported to Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for training in the soon to be formed Tank Corps commanded by Major Dwight D. Eisenhower. Upon deployment, he was assigned to C Company, 302nd Tank Battalion, a unit equipped with heavy British Mark VI tanks. In France, the 302nd was stationed in Langres (APO 714) at the AEF&#39;s Tank Center commanded by Captain George S. Patton. Following the Meuse-Argonne offensive, Fletcher was reassigned to the 344th Tank Battalion, also stationed at Langres, which was equipped with light French Renault tanks. Censorship was apparently very strict in the Tank Corps as Fletcher&#39;s letters are mostly requests for additional mail from home and provide little insight into unit operations. Still, this collection of materials that date from the creation of the Tank Corps at Gettysburg through the Armistice is unique, and it is unlikely that any other similar assemblages exist.. Letters. Very Good.

[Leipzig], [Kurt Wolff], [1918]. 30,5 x 22,5 cm, fac-similé intégral de (1) 213 pp., 2 croquis dans le texte, 8 compositions à pleine page et 19 planches contrecollées, 1 papillon inséré, cartonnage de l&#39;éditeur (signé E.A. Enders, Leipzig) reproduisant fidèlement le carnet original (gravure de Dürer au dernier plat, estampes japonaises sur les gardes...). Edition originale. Tirage à 100 exemplaires seulement, celui-ci, comme souvent, sans le feuillet de justification volant (mais la signature du relieur prouve qu&#39;il ne s&#39;agit pas d&#39;un retirage). Paul Gauguin composa cette autobiographie, qui est aussi son dernier livre, sur l&#39;île de Hivaoa aux Marquises entre janvier et février 1903. Il en confia ensuite le manuscrit au critique André Fontainas pour qu&#39;il l&#39;édite. Celui-ci, qui n&#39;y parvint pas, le restitua à Mette Gauguin. Pola et Mette Gauguin le vendirent ensuite à l&#39;éditeur Kurt Wolff en 1913, lequel parvint finalement à publier le somptueux fac-similé que voici en 1918, avant de revendre le manuscrit à Erik-Ernst Schwabach et de donner diverses versions imprimées du texte. Rarissime. Très bel exemplaire..

        Pavannes and Divisions [Signed Association Copy]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1918. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher&#39;s original blue cloth, SIGNED BY EZRA POUND on the title page with a device drawn by him below his signature; a collection of sketches and essays, some of which were earlier published in various periodicals. This copy is in Very Good condition, with wear to the corners and edges, and to the spine, and the with the spine lettering rather rubbed. The internal condition of the book is Very Good + or better. (This copy lacks the quite scarce and brittle dust jacket.) Having a marvelous Provenance, this copy belonged to John M. Lundoff whose bookplate resides on the front free endpaper and then to the American actor Jack Palance. American expatriate poet Ezra Pound left America and worked in London and Paris as the foreign editor of several American magazines. As such, Pound was responsible for the publication of T. S. Eliot&#39;s "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" (1915) and for the serialization of James Joyce&#39;s Ulysses. Of him, Ernest Hemingway wrote: "He defends [his friends] when they are attacked, he gets them into magazines and out of jail. ... He writes articles about them. He introduces them to wealthy women. He gets publishers to take their books. He sits up all night with them when they claim to be dying ... he advances them hospital expenses and dissuades them from suicide." In 1925, disillusioned with England due to the carnage of World War I, which he blamed on usury and international capitalism, Pound relocated to Italy where he later embraced Mussolini&#39;s fascism, vocalized support for Hitler, and wrote for publications owned by Oswald Mosley (founder of the British Union of Fascists). During World War II Pound, paid by Italy, made hundreds of radio broadcasts critical of the United States and, as a result thereof, American forces arrested him for treason in 1945. For one 25-day period, Pound was held outdoors in a 6&#39; x 6&#39; cage which Pound said triggered a mental breakdown. Thus unfit to be tried for treason, Pound spent the next 12 years in a Washington D.C. psychiatric hospital. This copy belonged to John M. Lundoff, an American fascist and the Chairman of the National Renaissance Program ("NRP") in Brooklyn, New York. The NRP issued propaganda rehashing Hitler&#39;s speeches and published the National Renaissance Program Bulletin in one issue of which Lundoff asked the youth of America to choose between "parliamentary democracy with its empty promises and discord or the clear, brave, and youthful Fascist principles outlined here." This copy then switched sides, so to speak, and became the property of the actor Jack Palance (born Volodymyr Jack Palahniuk), a full-blooded Ukrainian born in America, who served in the United States Air Force during World War II while Pound was denouncing America. The bookplate from the 2006 auction of much of Palance&#39;s personal property is affixed to the front free endpaper. While signed copies of Pound&#39;s limited editions abound, signed copies of his trade publications are, in our experience, considerably less common and signed copies of the book offered here are hen&#39;s teeth. A Very Good copy of a book quite difficult to find SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE SCARCE.
