        La Guerre Totale.

      S.l. 1918 - in-folio, 32 lignes sur belle page d'1 feuillet de titre et 170 ff., maroquin bleu janséniste, doublures en maroquin rouge encadrés d'un triple filet doré, gardes moirées et dominotées, dos à nerfs, non rogné, étui (Semet & Plumelle). Manuscrit autographe daté 27 mars 1918 signé Léon Daudet. Première apparition de l'expression "Guerre totale" qui fera florès au XXe siècle, définie ainsi par l'auteur dans son essai éponyme publié en 1918 : « C'est l'extension de la lutte, dans ses phases aiguës comme dans ses phases chroniques, aux domaines politique, économique, commercial, industriel, intellectuel, juridique et financier. Ce ne sont pas seulement les armées qui se battent, ce sont aussi les traditions, les institutions, les coutumes, les codes, les esprits et surtout les banques. L'Allemagne a mobilisé dans tous ces plans, sur tous ces points. Elle s'est livrée à un débordement de propagande, toujours acharnée, parfois intelligente, parfois stupide, rarement inutile. Elle a constamment cherché, au-delà du front militaire, la désorganisation matérielle et morale du peuple qu'elle attaquait. Elle a poursuivi, pendant les hostilités, en l'intensifiant son programme d'exploitation de l'espionnage et de la trahison, qui était celui de l'avant-guerre. » En 1918, Léon Daudet, 51 ans, est rédacteur en chef de l'Action Française journal qu'il a fondé avec Charles Maurras dix ans auparavant ; depuis 1912, le violent polémiste anti-dreyfusard, royaliste et antisémite organise le procès du "défaitisme et de la trahison" par voie de presse dénonçant une prétendue infiltration des milieux des affaires et de la politique par des agents à la solde de l'Allemagne. Il est condamné pour diffamation en 1913 mais poursuit sa campagne à la Nouvelle Edition Française : L'Avant-guerre études et documents sur l'espionnage juif-allemand en France depuis l'affaire Dreyfus (1914), Hors du joug allemand, mesures d'après guerre (1915). La Guerre totale, écrit et publié la dernière année du conflit conceptualise la vision de l'éditorialiste sous un titre destiné à marquer les esprits ; Daudet y raconte l'affaire « Bonnet rouge », soutenu par l'or allemand, produisant preuves et témoignages puisés dans les colonnes de l'Action Française. [Organe d'extrême gauche, le Bonnet Rouge a défendu le rapprochement franco-allemand avant le premier conflit mondial. En 1914, à la demande du ministre Joseph Caillaux, le journal a publié des articles prenant la défense de sa femme, Henriette Caillaux, accusée du meurtre de Gaston Calmette, le directeur du Figaro. Pendant la guerre, le directeur du Bonnet Rouge, Vigo, dit Almereyda, laisse la direction de son journal à un dénommé Duval, qui reçoit de l'argent de l'étranger pour infléchir la ligne éditoriale : de pacifiste qu'il était, le journal devient franchement antimilitariste, provoquant l'intervention fréquente de la censure. Lorsqu'il enquête sur l'origine des fonds versés au Bonnet Rouge, le magistrat Bouchardon, découvre un échange de correspondances aimables entre Almereyda et Caillaux, qui devra s'expliquer sur ses relations entretenues avec les dirigeants de ce journal. (Sénat.fr )]. En 1919, Léon Daudet publiera dans la même veine Le poignard dans le dos sur l'affaire Malvy tandis que L'Offensive morale des Allemands en France pendant la guerre - L'Assaut de l'âme française de Louis Marchand paraîtra en 1920. Dernière copie manuscrite encore retouchée par l'auteur, Léon Daudet a disposé dans son texte de nombreuses coupures de presse et des passages tapuscrits que l'éditeur a intégralement reproduits dans la publication de 1918 (pagination et notes éditoriales au crayon bleu) ; en revanche, trois passages furent censurés (pages 118, 123 et 129 de l'imprimé) relatifs à l'ambassade d'Allemagne, "aux services de Mr. Malvy à la Sureté Générale et à la Préfecture de police" (feuillets manuscrits 82, 85 et 88). Joints : 2 bustes de Léon Daudet sur feuilles volantes 1. daté 1926, gravé par André de Székély de Doba ( [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Photo Album]: Female Student at Lincoln University of Missouri, 1918

      [Jefferson City, Missouri 1918 - Oblong octavo commercial album. Album covers perished, first leaf detached and laid in, pages brittle, good only; the images are well-preserved and about very good. 85 gelatin silver snapshot images in adhesive mounts. Various sizes from 1" x 1.25" to 4.25" x 2.75", some of the margins of the photos have been trimmed, others have been cut into ovals or other shapes for aesthetic reasons. Many prints are captioned, identifying locations and persons shown. A single print with a date of 1918, one with an African-American soldier in a WWI uniform, and another shows a Nash automobile matching circa-1918 models, thus our attribution of the date. An album of views compiled by a female student at Lincoln University, an historically black college in Jefferson City, Missouri. While the images are well-captioned, as usual the compiler's name is unclear (captioned as "me"), although she might have been from Oklahoma, as a few are labeled "Okla. girls" or Okla. girls & boys." Other images are of well-dressed female and male students lounging in a variety of poses both on and off campus, An image of two young women seated with their fingers laced over their knees is captioned "We are vamping kids." Others show a group of women on an outdoor staircase labeled "On Lincoln University farm." Several of the pictures identify teachers or professors, both black and white. There are images of young men next to automobiles, of students playing croquet, one showing a group of women climbing Pike's Peak, presumably.Lincoln was founded in 1866 by African-American Civil War veterans of the 62nd and 65th Regiments United States Colored Troops Infantry (USCT). A rare visual record with content on early women's education at an important black university.

        Lessons of the Revolution by Vladimir Oulianow (N. Lenin), President of the Council of People's Commissars.Translated from the Russian original, with Introduction and Appendix, and published by the Bureau of International Revolutionary Propaganda attached to the Commissariat for Foreign Affairs of the Provisional Workmen's and Peasants' Government of the Russian Republic. Russian Revolutionary Pamphlets.

      Petrograd, "Herold", 1918. - 51 pp. Original staple-stitched printed wrappers. 8vo. English translation of Lenin's article ("Uroki revoliutsii"), written in late July 1917 and first published in mid-September with an added postscript reflecting on the events of August 1917. During a period when the future form of governance was still undecided, Lenin's pamphlet promotes the idea of the "Soviet" (workers' council) rather than parliamentary democracy. Importantly, the appendix presents one of the first English overviews of the new political reality, defining and discussing such terms as the "Essers," "Mensheviks," "Fist (Kulak)," and "Soviet." The booklet was first published in 1917 by the same publisher (34 pp.); the second edition is presumably updated to reflect political developments in the interim. The pamphlet was also reprinted in San Francisco in 1919 by the People's Institute. This 1918 edition is quite scarce, with KVK and OCLC showing copies at the Danish National Library, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Harvard (Houghton Library), and Zurich. - A very good copy of a fragile title.

        Circular Memorandum on Courts-Martial for use on Active Service

      1918 - S.S. 412b. 12mo. Contemporary olive cloth-backed paper-covered boards, worn; original green wrappers bound-in, very good. Ownership inscription to front board and upper wrapper; interleaved throughout. 47pp. Issued by Adjutant General?s Branch of the Staff General Headquarters. August, ?Convening Officers will see that a copy is laid before every Court-Martial? (insert between p. 2 & 3). An extensively annotated interleaved copy of a scarce WW1 official pamphlet on how to conduct Courts-Martial. Two versions were produced during the First World War, to provide reference and guidance to Officers in a format more transportable and less weighty than the Manual of Military Law. The first (S.S. 412a) was published in June 1917 (presumably in reaction to the large scale French Army Mutinies that took place in May of that year) and the second (S.S. 412b) in August 1918. The second was likely published to coincide with the Allied Counteroffensive. This copy, an excellent example of S.S. 412b, belonged to Major Francis Seward Laskey of the Tank Corps. It is filled with remarkably thorough ink annotations, concerning procedure, precedent and amendments. For instance, Laskey adds numerous examples to the ?Charges? section, such as ?False Pretences?, ?Allowing prisoners to escape? and ?Wilful damage? Elsewhere he utilises the blank leaves to expand upon factors capable of complicating the following of procedure, such as ?insanity? There are also various ms. deletions of the printed text, with updated information copied in on the adjacent blanks. As a body of writing, Laskey?s notes show how the pamphlet was a working document: a basic text that needed to be built upon by the Officers; a text that altered according to new orders and continued to change as the war developed, moving toward its terminus. Also inserted or tipped in, are a number of related documents, including: a copy of an ms. letter, regarding the proceedings of a Courts-Martial on T. Marshall of the 23rd Middlesex Regiment in November 1918; a rough proof of an official War Office broadside, MEMORANDUM AS TO STATEMENTS BY SUSPECTS AND PRISONERS; a 7pp. pamphlet by Major-General P.E.F. Hobbs, titled Disciplinary Powers of a Commanding Officer. For more information on F. S. Laskey, who went on to become a Lieut. Col. In the Tank Corps, see: [A.H.T. Cocks], The War History of the Sixth Tank Battalion, (Privately printed, 1919). Scarce. Copac locates one copy of this edition at the Imperial War Museum. Worldcat adds two further holdings, at the Canadian War Museum and the University of Victoria (CN). The 1917 edition is equally rare, with holdings at the Imperial War Museum, the University of Toronto and the Australian Defence Force Academy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Typed letter signed to his commanding officer during the Great War.

      A.R.C. Hospital: "Somewhere in Milano", 31 July [1918] - One page octavo, typed on one side only. Housed in a marbled paper flap-case. Lightly creased where folded. In excellent condition. Remarkable chatty and amusing letter dating from the period of Hemingway's convalescence from a wound sustained on the Italian front, signed in pencil and with an autograph note in his hand; reprinted in The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: 1907-1922, pp. 122-23. The recipient, Captain James Gamble, was a field inspector with the American Red Cross Rolling Canteen Service (for more information on Gamble see an article by Gary Brenner in The Hemingway Review, Volume 20, Number 1, Autumn 2000, ' "Enough of a Bad Gamble": Correcting the Misinformation on Hemingway's Captain James Gamble'). "Dear Capitano; Salute! On our front there is nothing to report. On our rear however all is healed and the bandages have been removed." "The chief of Section Four asked for volunteers to man the chain of canteens the Red Cross was setting up under the command of Captain James Gamble in the Oiave River Valley north of Venice. The canteens would offer coffee, soup, candy and cigarettes to off-duty soldiers and provide them with a place to write letters and listen to phonograph records. Until the canteens were operational, the tenente in charge would be expected to bicycle up to the front twice a day and pass out cigarettes and chocolates to the troops. Ernest immediately volunteered, for he had heard that the fighting along the lower Piave was the most intense since the Italian defeat at Caporetto the previous autumn. Ernest did not appear in the mess hall on the night of July 8. Instead, he rode his bicycle far out along the west bank of the Piave to see what he could do for the morale of the men in a forward listening post. While he was passing out chocolates in a dugout a trench mortar shell exploded a few feet away. Many years later he declared that the passage describing the wounding of Lieutenant Henry in A Farewell to Arms was an accurate account of what had happened to him. Attendants stripped off his trousers and the medical captain commenced dictating to the sergeant-adjutant while he worked. 'Multiple superficial wounds on the left and right thigh and left and right knee and foot. Profound wounds of right knee and foot. Lacerations of the scalp. with possible fracture of the skull. The captain removed as many scaggia from the Tenente's legs as he could under the circumstances, gave him an antitetanus shot and a snort of brandy and bandaged him up. From the dressing station he was transported by ambulance to a field hospital. Here he remained, swathed in bandages, for several days before being sent on a train to a newly established American hospital in Milan for surgical removal of the remaining shell fragments" (Kenneth S. Lynn, Hemingway, 1987, pp.79-80). Also present is a 2-page letter from the Philadelphia bookseller Charles Sessler offering this letter, with a group of other Hemingway letters, to a Mrs Henry M. Watts, Jr (headed paper, dated 19 July 1966) [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Fata-Morgana [Poetry Collection]

      Noor-Eesti, Tartu 1918 - Estonian language. Octavo 14 x 21 cm. Weight 120 gr. Wrappers, 70 pp. The book is in Near Fine without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Lightly wrapped fore-edge of book cover, cover shows some yellowing and minor foxing to the edges; internally slight foxing mainly to the top edge, previous owner’s inscription on the title. "Fata-morgana" (1918) was the first volume of poems by the most outstanding Estonian modern revolutionary and avant-garde poet Johannes Barbarus. Sensuous verses express in romantic mood pangs of love, passion, self-knowledge. Poet uses a lot of interesting expressions. Barbarus poems deal with both man's and woman's point of view. Being a male, author perfectly catches woman's character, passionate temperament and emotions. Poems are written in ABAB poetry form, which makes reading easier. "Fata-morgana" brought to the Estonian literature ideas of Expressionism, Futurism and Cubism, this poetry defies existed traditions and moral norms. Poetry volume cover and frontispiece design created by Ado Vabbe - famous Estonian avant-garde artist, one of the greatest woodcut masters. Johannes Vares (1890-1946) became a well known Estonian poet as well as radical socialist, using the pen name Johannes Barbarus. As a writer he debuted in 1910 with neo-romantic poems in the cultural magazine "Noor-Eesti" (Young Estonia). In 1917 he became a member of the "Siuru" poetry group. He wrote poems and published successive volumes of poetry up to 1939. His works reflected a sensitive humanist awareness of social conflicts and stresses. He also wrote novellas, literary criticism and travelogues. Barbarus inspired by French modernist poets made an effort to reform Estonian poetry following French example, trying to bring to Estonian literature fast urban rhythms and tempos corresponding with scientific and technical progress. Writer's most famous and provocative experiments with forms and common truth breaking were reached in constructivist poetry collections "Geomeetriline inimene" (Geometric man) (1924) and "Multiplitseerit inimene" (Multiplied Man) (1927). These verse collections is mainly graphic experiment and cubist-constructivist technologies. Such brilliant combination of book author's Johannes Barbarus and illustrator's Jaan Vahta creation may be considered as one of the cult works of Eastern Europe avant-garde.

        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.
