        L'Enfant à la charrue. Huit contes limousins du temps de guerre.

      Paris, Jules Meynial. 1918 - Petit in-8° carré, 5ff, 100pp, 3ff, plein cartonnage décoré, étui décoré avec étiquette de titre. Edition ornée de vignettes "taillées dans le bois" par François-Louis SCHMIED: 1 frontispice en deux tons, 8 bandeaux en tête de chapitres tirés en noir, 8 lettrines en deux tons, des ornements typographiques en différents tons et 8 culs de lampe en noir. Le cartonnage, les gardes et l'étui sont recouverts de papiers décorés par SCHMIED. Tirage limité à 401 ex. Celui-ci sur vélin de Hollande signé par l'artiste. Bon exemplaire de ce charmant ouvrage peu courant. C'est le deuxième livre illustré et décoré par l'artiste, qui l'a également tiré sur ses presses. Pendant le premier conflit mondial, François-Louis SCHMIED, d'origine Suisse, s'était engagé dans la Légion étrangère. Blessé à Capy, dans la Somme, en décembre 1914, il perdit un oeil et reprit son activité artistique de dessinateur et de graveur: il produit de nombreuses estampes et grave, d'après les compositions de Paul JOUVE, les planches du Livre de la Jungle qui paraîtra en 1919. Auparavant, il agrémente donc ce recueil de Contes écrits par la veuve d'Edouard Maury, l'auteur de Sous la tente, le tout premier livre que Fr.-L. Schmied avait illustré. A propos de ce livre, Ritchie note (p.31): "This was the first of Schmied's printing that I bought when I was in Paris in 1930." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed ("G. Bernard Shaw"), to Chas. L. Brodie of the Greenock Philosophical Society

      London, 1918. 1 page. 4to. Single sheet of 10 Adelphi Terrace stationery. Old folds, faint toning. 1 page. 4to. Shaw declines an invitation, extended by the Greenock [Scotland] Philosophical Society, to speak on the "European situation" at the end of World War I. In part: "... I would rather not undertake a public appearance in Scotland just at this juncture. The times are such that unless a man has something really interesting and helpful to say on the European situation, he had better hold his tongue. I should not like to go down to Greenock and put you off with a more or less eloquent evasion. It is not so much that I have nothing to say as that I am not convinced that the time will have come for saying it in the course of your season."

        Memorial Signature Book with W. C. Matthews Autograph [AFRICAN AMERICAN BASEBALL PIONEER] [Tuskeegee Institute]

      No Publisher [Boston] [1918] - [First Edition] Small octavo, original gray cloth. Volume begins with a handwritten presentation page stating that the book was intended to be a gift to the widow of a gentleman named Oric Bates, a Harvard graduate who became a leading author and archaeologist of Egyptian history. But the collecting intrigue here is the signature of one of Bates' former classmates -- William Clarence Matthews. Born in Selma, Alabama, Matthews was educated at the famous Tuskeegee Institute before enrolling at Harvard, where he led the baseball team in batting average for the 1903, 1904 and 1905 seasons. In the summer of 1905, Matthews joined the Burlington (VT) team of the Northern League, making him the only African-American in any white professional league. Talks of him joining the Boston Beaneaters of the National League arose around this time but were quickly stifled, and it would be another four decades before Robinson would complete the task. Matthews would not live to see it, passing away at the age of fifty-one in 1928. Matthews' signature appears in 9/10 black fountain pen ink among the several dozen mourners. Extremely Rare.

        [Photo Album]: A World War I Soldiers Photo Album of his Adventures from Before he Entered the War, 1916 to 1918

      Oakland, California, 1918. Very Good. Oblong quarto measuring 11.5" x 7". String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 161 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.5" x 1.5" and 6" x 3.5" with some captions. Rubbing, bumped corners, and spotting thus very good with fine photographs.This photo album features a group of young men and their adventures together during 1916 through 1918 in Oakland, California. Several of the same young men are seen in group photos or standing and smiling together. In some photos the men are seen riding or posed next to motorcycles with "best ones" written below. A few pictures feature their girlfriends on "Picnic days" out in parks or around the city. The album focuses on one of the young men, Charles Vanina, as he is seen in most of the photos wearing a huge grin sometimes arm in arm with his girlfriend, Olympia Elaine Goodman. The last few pages are of the young couple out in the country on a farm. Also included are a few small newspaper clippings, one of which is titled, "Airman Tells Life in Italy" which includes accounts from U.S. Airman living in Italy during World War I. The Airman is Clarence M. Smith who went to Oakland's Polytechnic College of Engineering and talks about passing his first flying brevet. Smith is presumably one of the men in this photo album or a friend. Other clippings reference the college's engineering club winning competitions and several clippings about Vanina going off to war in the Engineer Corps. Vanina was the Assistant City Building Inspector for Oakland until he was drafted in the war. One clipping writes that the position of Building Inspector had not been filled when Vanina left for the war.A photo album featuring several young men and their adventures in and around Oakland together during World War I.

        Photo album]: Photos and Ephemera from a Young Soldier's Experiences in World War I.

      P. Bacon Richardson, (New York 1918 - Small quarto. 63pp. Brown quarter cloth with tan paper covered boards with an illustrated paper label titled "In The Great War." Some marks, edgewear, and waviness on the boards with foxing on the pages, else very good with fine photographs. A young soldier's war album from 1918-1919 during World War I. Filled with various ephemera including newspaper articles, a postcard, event invitations to welcome back soldiers from war, a business card, and 9 sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs ranging in size from 3" x 2" and 5.5" x 3.25"Although the photographs are not labeled, the album most likely belonged to New York native Lieutenant Herbert S. Conant whose name appears on various pieces of ephemera. A postcard is addressed to his mother and a full newspaper article featuring his experiences is also in the album. The article prints a letter Conant sent his mother "Young Trojan Lieutenant Recounts Exciting Experiences -- How 105th Infantry Section Held Line When Nearly Surrounded -- Two Hoosick Falls Boys Captured Forty-two Germans -- Prisoners Who Formerly Lived in America -- Among the Wounded." In Conant's letter he writes of his experiences in the trenches and losing fellow comrades "I gave most of my food and water to wounded men. Late that afternoon some litters came in and we gathered up the men who were still alive out in 'no-mans land' and brought them in." Several pictures of soldiers are cut from a newspaper featuring an article about Brooklyn's "Welcome Home" parade. It shows the soldiers marching through Washington Square, the wounded looking up at their more fortunate comrades, and carrying a flag with "Nearly 2,000 gold stars for the boys of the 27th who sleep in France." The album's layout features a printed illustration of a soldier on every page with a title listed and space for a photograph. The pages depict the regular struggles and daily life of a soldier with titles like, "Before the War," "In Training," "Wounded," "In Prison Camp," and "Returned Home." The photos lack captions but there are a couple photos of the young soldier, presumably Lieutenant Herbert S. Conant. One shows him dressed in a football uniform and another depicts him in his uniform with his mother and father. An interesting collection of news and photographs from a soldier in World War I and his experience in the war. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Baghdad: Dar-es-Salaam Press,, 1918. Duodecimo (120 × 81 mm). Original paper boards, red cloth backstrip, front board lettered in black. Rubbed and marked, fraying to backstrip, upper outer corners of boards extensively worn away, inner hinges sometime reinforced with paper, contents browned, final blank chipped. An extremely rare survival from the Mesopotamian Campaign or its immediate aftermath, no other copies traced in libraries, commerce or secondary sources. British forces entered Baghdad in March 1917; the final defeat of the Ottoman Forces came with the Battle of Sharqat, north of Baghdad, in October the following year. "E. R. C. P." and the author of the preface, "J. N. M." frustratingly elude positive identification, though the name of the second author, unless an Anglicisation of Musa, contains a tantalising suggestion of British reliance on Iraq's significant Jewish population in order to establish control in the wake of the Ottoman expulsion, the whole state of affairs alluded to only laconically in the preface: "it is believed that a large number of people of the British race desire to learn the Spoken Arabic of Mesopotamia". In fact the British drafted in large numbers from the Indian Civil Service who were likely to have knowledge of the region and its languages; another guide, Mesopotamian Arabic, by one Naoum Seresser (possibly an Iraqi Christian), was published the same year in Bombay. The present work comprises sections on useful vocabulary, conjugation of verbs, and useful phrases and sentences, all transliterated into Latin characters, evidently aimed at those with little prior knowledge of Arabic. There was an Arabic press named Dar al-Salaam active in Baghdad in the mid-19th century; library records yield many Arabic works published with the same imprint from 1922 (i.e. after the suppression of the Iraqi revolt) to 1930 and occasionally thereafter.

        Village of Dagestan.

      c 1918 - Charcoal on paper (47 x 63 cm), signed. Large view of a Dagestan village opening from the terrace of a traditional house. It was drawn by a Ukrainian born artist in the historically important period for this Caucasian region when it enjoyed a short-lived independence. Located in the North Caucasus, Dagestan came under full Russian control at the end of the Russo-Persian War in 1828. However, the Empire struggled to retain control over the ethnically diverse region and in 1917 Dagestan, Ingushetia and Chechnya declared independence from Russia and formed a single state "United Mountain Dwellers of the North Caucasus". The capital of the new state was moved to Temir-Khan-Shura in Dagestan. The state existed only for four years until in 1921 Russians occupied the country to incorporate it into the newly created Soviet state. Lochakow studied painting in Odessa, later fighting as an officer in the Russian Army during the First World War. He settled in Paris in 1920 and exhibited his works in various Salons. Living in seclusion and suffering from ill health, he died in 1941. The drawing comes from a private collection of Sarkis Boghossian and was published in his monumental work "Armenian Iconography" that gathers ____ prints and drawings on the subject. Boghossian's biography resembles a thriller novel. Born in 1921 in a small Armenian village in today's Turkey, Boghossian was taken to Marseille at the age of six by his family that fled famine and oppression. Passionate about art, poetry and Armenian culture, he chose a career of bookseller. In 1967 Boghossian opened a rare bookshop in Paris, "Le XIXe siècle", specialising in rare books and engravings related to Armenia. In autumn 1998 the French booksellers' community woke up to shocking news that Boghossian had been found dead in his Parisian flat, tortured and murdered, with a number of valuable books missing from the apartment. Police quickly traced the murderer, who, however, hardly resembled the idea one may have of an assassin. He was a French bookseller of Turkish origin and a renowned scholar with a PhD from Sorbonne specialising in Ottoman and Armenian history. He was apparently in dispute with Boghossian over a number of rare books that the latter kept as a guarantee against a cash loan. The bookseller was arrested and subsequently sentenced to 19 years in prison just when he was due to give a lecture at a conference in Nice titled "The Armenian merchants in the Mediterranean in the eighteenth century". Sarkis Boghossian "Armenian Iconography II" reproduces No. 889 p.151 - Paris, 1998. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Photographs]: The A.E.F. Arrives in Italy

      Genoa and others, 1918. Fine. A collection of 19 gelatin silver photographs mounted, plus two additional portraits. Various sizes between 7" x 5" and 6.5" x 9" mounted on good quality card mounts measuring 12.25" x 10.25", each with the identical caption: "Arrivo del primo contingente di Truppe Americane in Italia. 27 Giugno, 1918" ("Arrival of the first contingent of American troops in Italy. June 27, 1918"). A little silvering in the margins of some images, else fine. The images depict the 332nd Infantry Regiment of the American Expeditionary Force on the first day of their arrival in Italy. About half of the images are of the troops on shipboard and disembarking from the ship, and the remaining images are of the troops, lead by the regimental band, parading through the streets of Genoa. From there they were based at Lake Garda, and later participated in the Vittorio-Veneto offensive. Additionally there are two formal portraits of American brothers in uniform: James L. and Stephen A. Crump, Jr. Each of these images is approximately 4" x 5.5" on larger card mounts, with the embossed mark of a Genoa photographer and each is inscribed to Captain Edgar J. Williams. The Crump brothers, from Macon, Georgia, were cotton brokers in Genoa, before, during, and after the War. Conceivably this suite of images was prepared by them to emphasis their own patriotic nature and the friendship between the Italians and Americans. Excellent and clear images.

        [Photo album]: Photos and Ephemera from a Young Soldier's Experiences in World War I.

      (New York: P. Bacon Richardson, 1918. Very Good. Small quarto. 63pp. Brown quarter cloth with tan paper covered boards with an illustrated paper label titled "In The Great War." Some marks, edgewear, and waviness on the boards with foxing on the pages, else very good with fine photographs. A young soldier's war album from 1918-1919 during World War I. Filled with various ephemera including newspaper articles, a postcard, event invitations to welcome back soldiers from war, a business card, and 9 sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs ranging in size from 3" x 2" and 5.5" x 3.25"Although the photographs are not labeled, the album most likely belonged to New York native Lieutenant Herbert S. Conant whose name appears on various pieces of ephemera. A postcard is addressed to his mother and a full newspaper article featuring his experiences is also in the album. The article prints a letter Conant sent his mother "Young Trojan Lieutenant Recounts Exciting Experiences -- How 105th Infantry Section Held Line When Nearly Surrounded -- Two Hoosick Falls Boys Captured Forty-two Germans -- Prisoners Who Formerly Lived in America -- Among the Wounded." In Conant's letter he writes of his experiences in the trenches and losing fellow comrades "I gave most of my food and water to wounded men. Late that afternoon some litters came in and we gathered up the men who were still alive out in 'no-mans land' and brought them in." Several pictures of soldiers are cut from a newspaper featuring an article about Brooklyn's "Welcome Home" parade. It shows the soldiers marching through Washington Square, the wounded looking up at their more fortunate comrades, and carrying a flag with "Nearly 2,000 gold stars for the boys of the 27th who sleep in France." The album's layout features a printed illustration of a soldier on every page with a title listed and space for a photograph. The pages depict the regular struggles and daily life of a soldier with titles like, "Before the War," "In Training," "Wounded," "In Prison Camp," and "Returned Home." The photos lack captions but there are a couple photos of the young soldier, presumably Lieutenant Herbert S. Conant. One shows him dressed in a football uniform and another depicts him in his uniform with his mother and father. An interesting collection of news and photographs from a soldier in World War I and his experience in the war.

        Springtide of Life, The

      London: William Heinemann, 1918 - Signed Limited EditionBound by Zaehnsdorf for E. Joseph[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. 185). Large quarto (10 15/16 x 9 inches; 278 x 229 mm.). ix, [1], 132, [2] pp. Nine full color tipped-in plates with captioned tissue guards and fifty-two black and white text illustrations. Bound ca. 1989 by Zaehnsdorf for E. Joseph (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in full dark green crushed levant morocco. Covers ruled in gilt, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt to match the original 1918 cover design, spine paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled board edges and turn-ins, top edge gilt, others uncut, original pictorial end-papers. A fine copy. 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."
