        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).

Very attractive red three-quarter morocco, raised bands, spine handsomely gilt in compartments formed by plain and decorative rules, quatrefoil centerpiece surrounded by densely scrolling cornerpieces, sides and endleaves of rose-colored linen, top edge gilt. With numerous black and white illustrations of cherubic children in the text, and NINE COLOR PLATES, as called for, all tipped onto brown paper and with letterpress guards.

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.

        Affaire Bola-Pacha, 68 Croquis d'Audience par Sem

      1918. Sem [Gorsat (Goursat), Georges (1863-1934)]. Affaire Bola-Pacha: 68 Croquis d'Audience par Sem. [Paris: S.n., c. 1918]. 68 lithographic images on 24 sheets and a sheet of captions in a printed wrapper housed in a printed folder. 12-1/2" x 10." 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."

        Ministry of Munitions of War. H.M. Factory, Gretna. Description of Plant and Process

      Dumfries: Printed for HMSO by J. Maxwell & Son,, 1918. Foolscap quarto (338 × 208 mm) Original maroon skiver, title gilt to the upper board within panel of swags in blind. Profusely illustrated with diagrams, plans and sketch-maps, many of them folding, some coloured, and a number of half-tone plates from photographs including extensive panoramas of the works and the cordite ranges. Rubbed at the extremities, and neatly rebacked, contents clean and sound. First and only edition. The massive factory site, which included the two purpose-built townships of Gretna and Eastriggs, was established as a response to the Shell Crisis of 1915. The plant's product was cordite - a smokeless propellant explosive comprised of a mixture of nitro-glycerine and nitro-cellulose, or gun cotton, and described by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle after a visit to the site as "The Devil's Porridge" - and within a year of commencing production it was turning out 800 tons a week, more than all the other factories in Britain combined. Two thirds of the close 17,000 workers were women. The site was closed at the end of the war, the buildings demolished, eventually being parcelled off into 700 lots and sold off in the 1920s. A remarkably detailed technical account of this vital contribution to victory in World War I, this copy that of Lord Moulton who was Director General of the Explosive Supply Department. Uncommon, just four copies recorded on OCLC.

        'Hey Fellows!' Your Money Brings the Book We Need When We Want It

      (N.-pl.): American Library Association, 1918. Poster Poster. Near Fine. Roughly 20.25 by 29.75 inches. Stone lithograph in three colors. Perhaps the most famous book-related poster, produced by the ALA Committee on Public Information, Division of Pictorial Publicity for the United War Work Campaign, scheduled for the Week of November 11, 1918. The campaign united the ALA, the YWCA, the YMCA, the Jewish Welfare Board, and other civic organizations with a goal of raising $170 million to support American soldiers deployed in Europe. As the start date approached and the end of the war seemed near (as it happened, the armistice went into effect on the first day of the campaign), the emphasis shifted to the year or more that the army would remain in Europe securing the peace. The artist was a popular commercial illustrator who worked for several newspapers and provided cover art to the Saturday Evening Post and other magazines. Linen-backed. Other than a few small creases in the upper right border and a bit of evidence of surface cleaning, this is a fine example of a classic poster.

        Poems

      Richmond: Hogarth Press. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of Eliot's second book of poetry, hand-printed by Virginia and Leonard Woolf at the Hogarth Press and issued in an extremely limited run of only 250 copies (of both issues combined). "On 15 November 1918, Eliot took three or four poems to show the Woolfs at their workplace-home, Hogarth House, in Richmond. Seven poems, including 'Mr. Eliot's Sunday Morning Service', 'Whispers of Immortality', and 'Sweeney Among the Nightingales', were printed by the Hogarth Press in 1919 and bound in one of [Roger] Fry's designs. Leonard and Virginia Woolf made 190 copies, to be sold at a half a crown each. It was a gesture of faith which helped strengthen Eliot's position" (Lyndall Gordon, T.S. Eliot). The edition, with a run generally assumed to be closer to 250 than 190, sold out in a year, bringing in a modest profit for Eliot and the Woolfs. Containing some of Eliot's most important early work, "Poems is as backward-looking as it is pushing at the confines of the present-poetic. Stylistically and formally Eliot shattered old pattern of writing, and gave the world of poetry a shock it hadn't experienced since Mallarmé declared that the Symbolists had done violence to verse" (McIntire, Modernism, Memory, and Desire). FIRST ISSUE, with "capitaux" in the uncorrected state. Richmond: Hogarth Press, 1919. Octavo, in original patterned wrappers, hand-printed and bound by Leonard and Virginia Woolf; custom box. Splitting along spine ends, archival reinforcement to a few small tears to wrappers. A superb copy of a scarce and fragile book.

        Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins

      London: Humphrey Milford. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, ONE OF ONLY 750 COPIES, of Hopkins's first book. "After Hopkins' death, Robert Bridges began to publish a few of Hopkins's most mature poems in anthologies, hoping to prepare the way for wider acceptance of his style. By 1918, Bridges, then poet laureate, judged the time opportune for the first collected edition. It appeared but sold slowly. Not until 1930 was a second edition issued, and thereafter Hopkins' work was recognized as among the most original, powerful, and influential literary accomplishments of his century; it had a marked influence on such leading 20th-century poets as T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, W.H. Auden, Stephen Spender, and C. Day Lewis" (John Cowie Reid). London: Humphrey Milford, 1918. Octavo, original half buckram over original blue boards; custom box. Complete with two portraits of Hopkins and two plates of facsimile manuscripts. A few spots to binding, but overall unusually clean. Spine label browned (as usual) with small chip at bottom. A few neat pencil marks in a few margins (noting, perhaps, favorite poems); small rust spot on rear pastedown extending into margins of the last pages of Notes. A fresh, clean, and exceptionally nice copy of a rare and important work.

        THE SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY, an extensive run from 1918 to 1963 (with gaps), totaling 968 issues

      [London: Amalgamated Press,. 1918 through 1963. most bound uniformly in red cloth with gold stamping on spines.. The bound issues are in very nice condition, with bright covers,. supple pages, and only mild tanning and edge wear. Binding these, in. effect, saved them from the fate common to most boys digests of this. period: spine damage repaired by cello-tape which exacerbated the. damage. The cloth bindings themselves are all in very good condition.. The four loose issues from the 1940s are in mixed condition; those. from 1962-1963 are near fine. Altogether, this represents a nearly. unique archive of material important to popular culture, one that. would be difficult if not impossible to assemble from scratch today.. Complete calendar available upon request. (#142127). The first story featuring Sexton Blake, "The Missing Millionaire" by Harry Blyth writing as "Hal Meredeth," appeared in THE HALFPENNY MARVEL in December 1893. The first issue of the SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY was published in 1915. This lot consists of 87 bound volumes, the publisher's own file copies with relevant paper labels on front covers or rubber stamps to endpapers. Also included are 40 unbound issues, mostly from the early 1960s. The bound issues all have their original covers and are slightly trimmed. Early volumes have four copies per volume; later ones, twelve. The serial began as a 64- or 72-page book (printed in small but readable double-columns), and generally consisted of a single short novel, sometimes with an extra short story or nonfiction filler. The magazine switched to 96 pages in 1932, then reverted to 64 pages from 1947 until its demise in 1963 (it was revised for a short period in the mid-1960s). Except for a period in the 1920s-1930s, the publisher did not date issues. The SBL used five numbering sequences (three of which are represented here). Up until the early years of World War II, four numbers were issued each month. Then it dropped to two, a pattern it maintained for the duration of its existence. Included in this lot are runs from the late 1910s; all issues for 1923; scattered runs from 1924 to 1927; all of 1929- 1932; all of 1935 through first half of 1939; most of 1940; all of 1941 through first half of 1942; all of 1943 through first half of 1945; all of 1946 through first half of 1950; all of 1952; six months each of 1953, 1954, 1955, 1957; all of 1958; all of 1959-1961; plus loose issues for all of 1962-1963.& & Michael Moorcock was closely associated with the SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY from 1958 to 1960, during which time he contributed short stories, short features, and editorial material. Moorcock's first book, CARIBBEAN CRISIS, a collaboration with Jim Cawthorn as "Desmond Reid," was published in 1962 as number 501 of the SBL (a fine copy is present here). Among the other modern Sexton Blake contributors are R. Coutts Armour (anonymously and as Coutts Brisbane, H [Hartley] Tremayne and Reid Whitley or Whitly), W Howard Baker, Lester Bidston, Ladbroke Black (anon and as Black), Sydney J. Bounds (as Peter Saxon), T. C. Bridges (anon and as Bridges), Edwy Searles Brooks (anon and as Brooks), John Lymington (as Desmond Reid), Colin Collins (anon), Cicely Hamilton (as Scott Rae and/or Max Hamilton), Wilfred McNeilly (as W. A. Ballinger, McNeilly and Desmond Reid), Jack Trevor Story (as Story and, once, Richard Williams), Martin Thomas, and E. C. Tubb (as Arthur Maclean).& & "Full-fledged sf elements are relatively rare in Sexton Blake work, though from time to time villains attempt to kill the detective in exotic ways like firing him off to the moon by rocket. Wilfred McNeilly's Let My People Be" (1965) as by Desmond Reid deals with the Irish 'Little People' as a lost race. Two of Jack Trevor Story's Sexton Blake Library titles are mildly science-fictional: The Frightened People (1958) centers on nuclear radiation leakage, and Danger on the Flip Side (1960) uses the then-futuristic McGuffin of a video disc." - Science Fiction Encyclopedia (online).& & "Sexton Blake was an enormously popular character in Britain, spanning more than a half- century, attracting over 200 authors to anonymously produce over 4000 stories. He was dismissed by some as a 'poor man's Sherlock Holmes,' but the material never concealed its true lineage: the dime novel and penny dreadfuls of the nineteenth century. The material hid its thrills under a wholesome exterior, but shifting morals allowed it to become more openly spicy as time when on. The covers of 1960s issues are more reminiscent of Mickey Spillane than Deadwood Dick. An additional element of this material is its recurrent use of super-scientific and science-fictional motifs. In its magnitude of popularity and longevity, it thus constitutes a kind of link between the nineteenth century dime novels and the Perry Rhodan serials that began in the 1960s, shortly after Sexton Blake presented his 'personal message of farewell' on the back cover of the June, 1963 issue." - Robert Eldridge. See Turner, Boys Will Be Boys (1957), pp. [117]-144. See Stephen Holland. The Sexton Blake Library (Dragonby, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire: Dragonby Press, 1988).

        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.

        Le Petit Chaperon Rouge

      London: Cyril Beaumont, 1918. Octavo. (iii), 16, (1+16)ff., frenchfold. From an edition of fifty copies, this is one of ten printed on chine and signed by the artist. This is the story of Little Red Riding Hood, with woodcut text and illustrations by Belgian artist Edgard Tijtgat. Sixteen illustrations, hors texte, appear in two states: color and bistre. Tijtgat’s illustrations are bold and expressionistic in style, and also deceptively innocent: things do not end well for Red Riding Hood in Charles Perrault's moral and more sinister version of the tale. Floral motif on the endpapers and repeated throughout the book. Tijtgat is associated with the Brabant Fauvists, a Belgian movement focused on pure, bold colors and simplified lines, similar to the Fauves led by Henri Matisse in France. During World War I, Tijtgat set up his printshop in England, where this book was published. Light foxing to upper margins of a few pages, some faint offsetting from prints, short closed tear to spine foot. Overall a fine copy in color-printed pictorial boards.

        Charles A. Lindbergh Photograph Signed to an Aviator/Hero of World War I

      Before the U.S. got involved in World War I, Alan F. Winslow served with the legendary Lafayette Escadrille in France. In 1918, now an officer in the U.S. Army's air service, he and Douglas Cambell shot down the first two German airplanes to fall victim to American aviators with General Pershing's expeditionary forces. On August 13, 1918, Winslow was shot down and reported killed in action over France. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. At war's end, he was discovered in a German hospital where he had been treated after surviving the crash but losing his arm. After the war, he became assistant chief of Pan American Airways' foreign department.& & In 1928, a year after his historic flight, Lindbergh became a technical advisor to Pan American Airways, a relationship that would prove long-lasting. While there, he became acquinted with Winslow. & & An 9 by 12 inch photograph of Lindbergh circa 1928-1932, inscribed and signed "To Mr. and Mrs. Alan F. Winslow, sincerely, Charles A. Lindbergh." The photograph can be approximately dated because Winslow's luck finally ran out in 1933, when he died at age 37 in a fall from a third-floor hotel window.

        The World Crisis: The Aftermath

      This is the fifth of six books in Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War. This volume deals with the postwar years 1918 to 1928. Here is the first edition, first printing, fine in an original dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is clean, tight, and square, retaining sharp corners, a nicely rounded spine and bright spine gilt. Blistering and separation of the cloth is a problem endemic to this particular edition, particularly along the hinges. This one of the very few copies we have seen with absolutely no trace of this flaw. The contents are crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No inscriptions. A two-line Errata is tipped in at p.9. Mild transfer browning to the endpapers confirms that this copy has spent its life jacketed. Only the text block edges testify to some age, showing some age-toning and just a few trivial spots. The dust jacket is toned at the edges and spine. Losses are modest, confined to an irregular .2 inch strip at the spine head, chips to a maximum depth of .25 inch at the spine tail, and chipping to a .25 inch depth near the lower front corner. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(IV).b, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

        [COLLECTION OF SEVENTY-ONE PIECES OF ORIGINAL COVER ART FOR THE Buffalo Bill Novels MAGAZINE SERIES]

      [Np, but possibly London. 1918-1932].. Seventy-one original painted illustrations, done in watercolor and gouache, each about 14 x 11 inches. Some light soiling and chipping around edges, but images generally bright and clean. Overall, very good. A remarkable group of original cover art for the BUFFALO BILL NOVELS, a British boys' pulp magazine published from 1916 to 1932 by the Aldine Publishing Co. in London. Despite its name, the stories were not always about Buffalo Bill, though they were always set in the Old West and featured plenty of cowboys and Indians. These illustrations are all signed by Robert Prowse (R.P.), who did artwork for this and other similar projects; some are dated below his initials. The series ran for 342 issues, though the last cover in this collection is for No. 344, possibly an unpublished issue, as we could find no trace of this title associated with the BUFFALO BILL NOVELS. Somewhere between No. 188 and No. 191, "New Series" began to appear above the issue number, though they all appear to be of the same run and the numbering is continuous. The titles are as follow: No. 23. THE MAN IN BLACK No. 24. THE MAD AVENGER No. 29. THE RED TOMAHAWK No. 41. THE PONY RIDE DETECTIVE No. 44. THE CRIMSON ARROW No. 51. BUCK TAYLOR!

        WHO'S WHO 1918. AN ANNUAL BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED "MEN AND WOMEN OF THE TIME."

      London: A. & C. Black, [nd. but 1918].. Very thick octavo. Original cloth. The spine covering is creased and partly split due to the cumbersome size of the volume and its use, the cloth is somewhat sunned and soiled, the front inner hinge is cracking, clipping from the TIMES (11 Jan. 1919) tipped to front pastedown, remnants of manuscript label formerly in spine, now laid in ("Thomas Hardy's Copy"); still, all things considered, a reasonably intact copy. Thomas Hardy's copy, with a number of neat deletions, additions and revisions in ink and pencil in the margins of his own entry on page 1059. An interesting year for this annual, as the publisher asserts: "It is natural that this year an immense number of military biographies should swell the book." In the on-line catalogue of Michael Millgate's "Thomas Hardy's Library at Max Gate ... An Attempted Reconstruction," it is noted that his copy of WHO'S WHO for 1926 bears what appear to be similar sorts of revisions. This year's annual is not there noted.
