        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'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'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'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'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's Armor Branch. Highlights of this collection of 16 postcards and covers with letters include two rare Treat 'Em Rough envelopes, one rare Treat 'Em Rough letterhead, one rare Tank Corps Camp Colt envelope, one rare AEF Christmas package mailing coupon, and two scarce American Red Cross 'postal' handstamps. Private Fletcher'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'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'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.

Tirage à 100 exemplaires seulement, celui-ci, comme souvent, sans le feuillet de justification volant (mais la signature du relieur prouve qu'il ne s'agit pas d'un retirage). Paul Gauguin composa cette autobiographie, qui est aussi son dernier livre, sur l'île de Hivaoa aux Marquises entre janvier et février 1903. Il en confia ensuite le manuscrit au critique André Fontainas pour qu'il l'édite. Celui-ci, qui n'y parvint pas, le restitua à Mette Gauguin. Pola et Mette Gauguin le vendirent ensuite à l'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'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's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" (1915) and for the serialization of James Joyce'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'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' x 6' 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'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's personal property is affixed to the front free endpaper. While signed copies of Pound'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's teeth. A Very Good copy of a book quite difficult to find SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE SCARCE.

        ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DELIVERED AT A JOINT SESSION OF THE TWO HOUSES OF CONGRESS NOVEMBER 11, 1918

      Washington: [Government Printing Office], 1918. First Edition. wraps. Vertical crease down center, fair amount of wrinkling. Very Good. Printed wraps, 11 pages. SIGNED by the President on the front cover. A scarce example, most especially when signed, of Woodrow Wilson's official announcement of the end of World War I. The Allies' armistice terms were first presented to German negotiators on 8 November 1918; alarmed at the severity of the terms the Germans lodged formal protests before reluctantly signing revised terms at 5 A.M. on 11 November; the armistice was to come into effect six hours later, at 11 A.M. President Wilson shortly afterwards announced details of the armistice to Congress in this speech which also outlines the terms of the armistice: "The war thus comes to an end; for, having accepted these terms of armistice, it will be impossible for the German command to renew it. It is not now possible to assess the consequences of this great consummation. We know only that this tragical war, whose consuming flames swept from one nation to another until all the world was on fire, is at an end and that it was the privilege of our own people to enter it at its most critical juncture in such fashion and in such force as to contribute in a way of which we are all deeply proud to the great result. We know, too, that the object of the war is attained; the object upon which all free men had set their hearts; and attained with a sweeping completeness which even now we do not realize. Armed imperialism such as the men conceived who were but yesterday the masters of Germany is at an end, its illicit ambitions engulfed in black disaster.

        Les Jockeys camouflés, trois poèmes par Monsieur Pierre Reverdy agrémentés de cinq dessins inédits de Monsieur Henri Matisse

      Paris: A la belle édition (François Bernouard), 1918. Livre. Illus. by Henri Matisse. Très bon. Demi-cuir. Dédicacé par l'auteur. Ed. originale. Paris, A la belle édition (François Bernouard), 1918. 25 x 22,5 cm, grand in-8, 25 ff. n. ch., y compris une planche double et trois autres, illustrées en noir, hors texte, bradel de demi chagrin noir, plats de plexiglas, titre à la chinoise en blanc cassé au dos, étui, couvertures conservées (reliure moderne signée de Bernard Bichon). Edition originale et premier tirage, avec le texte en trois couleurs. L'un des 300 exemplaires théoriquement sur vergé d'Arches (n° 285) mais fait en réalité de feuillets de papiers divers (vélin d'Arches, vergé d'Arches, vergé d'Annonay, vergé M.L.C., ainsi qu'un autre papier vélin non identifié). Le reste du tirage annoncé est de 17 Japon et 26 hors commerce "faits avec les feuilles cassées", soit, comme ici, des défets. Ce premier tirage rendit furieux Reverdy et Matisse, en raison de l'emploi de la couleur pour la typographie des poèmes (vert pour "Les jockeys mécaniques", orange pour "Autres jockeys alcooliques" et bleu pour "Piéton") et ils imposèrent à Bernouard de réaliser un second tirage, celui-ci entièrement en noir. Il semble qu'en 1947 l'ire de Reverdy se soit apaisée, puisque notre exemplaire comporte un amical ENVOI autographe signé et daté de celui-ci à René Bertelé, l'éditeur de Jacques Prévert. Rare avec envoi et plus recherché en couleurs qu'en noir. Très bel exemplaire, agréablement relié. (MONOD, 9682).

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.

From a signed edition of 300 on Arches paper, this number 283. Light soiling and edgewear to outer folder, a few minor tears along fold lines, short minor tear to spine of inner folder, light stain to caption sheet, plates fine. * The Bolo Pasha affair involved a French traitor, Paul Bolo, who convinced the Egyptian Khedive (Viceroy), Abbas Hilmi, to sponsor an anti-war movement in France through the press using from German sources. (Granted the title Pasha by the Khedive, Bolo renamed himself Bolo Pasha.) Convicted of treason, he was executed by a firing squad in April 1918. Sem's caricatures portray the judge, defendant, witnesses and judges at various points in the trial. Gorsat, or Goursat, was a French caricaturist and illustrator active from the late nineteenth century to 1934. His lasting fame rests on his depictions of French ruling class and French high society during the Belle Epoque. He was a regular contributor to the leading French periodicals, produced albums of caricatures depicting current events and social life and designed several path-breaking advertisements. His work is highly esteemed today.

        Springtide of Life, The

      1918. first edition. Signed Limited Edition in the Original Glassine WrapperRACKHAM, 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."
