        Shortly Before Hitler Came to Power in Germany, Winston Churchill Hopes "that a long time will be accorded us" Before Another Great War

      Major-General Sir Frederick Barton Maurice was & Director of Military Operations for the British & General Staff in World War I. In February 1918 & he became convinced that troops were being & withheld from the Western Front in order to un- & dermine the position of General Douglas Haig. & When David Lloyd George announced in the & House of Commons that British troop levels on & the Western Front were at all-time highs, Maurice & believed that he was deceiving both Parliament & and the British public, so he wrote a letter to & The Times criticizing that position. The publica- & tion of this letter on May 7, 1918 caused a minor & political storm, and Maurice was initially sus- & pended and ultimately forced to retire. He was a & prolific author with an interest in the American & Civil War, and in 1927 wrote "An Aide-de-camp & of Lee", assessing the war from the Confederate point of view using the papers & of Lee's aide Colonel Charles Marshall. & On the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Churchill became First Lord of the Ad- & miralty. However, he was blamed for the failure of the Dardanelles Campaign in & 1915 and was moved to the minor post of Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. & Unhappy about not having any power to influence the Government's war policy, & he joined the British Army and commanded a battalion of the Royal Scots Fusil- & iers on the Western Front. When David Lloyd George replaced Herbert Asquith & as Prime Minister, he brought Churchill back into the government as Minister & of Munitions and for the final year of the war, Churchill was in charge of the & production of tanks, airplanes, guns and shells. In the 1920s he served as Chan- & cellor of the Exchequer, the same position as secretary of the treasury in the & United States. Churchill was always interested in the Civil War, as his mother & and aunts were Americans who frequently discussed it at home when Churchill & was young; in fact, his grandfather Jerome owned stock in the New York Times & during the conflict. & Typed Letter Signed on his Exchequer letterhead, London, January 15, 1927, to & Maurice, alluding to the scandal, mentioning the impressions made by the hor- & rible blood-letting of World War I, and hoping that much time will be allotted & before the coming of another such awful conflict.. "...I am much obliged to you for & the information you have given me. My work, such as it is, does not attempt to be a & complete chronicle, but deals chiefly with those aspects of the war which I personally & realized. A friend, reading the proofs, drew my attention to the fact that no reference & had been made to the Maurice debate and it's after-consequences on British politics. I & thereupon drafted a paragraph and asked Eddie to inquire whether you had any fault to " & It will be a long time before a satisfactory solution is de- & vised, but happily we may hope that a long time will be ac- & corded us...& find with it. I have told him to make the alterations which I understand will avoid the & risk of any controversy between us on a personal point not in any way material to my & arguments, and on the general merits of which I take your view. As you know, I pro- & tested vigorously at the failure to reinforce the Army in November and December 1917; & but could make no headway in view of the horror and anger inspired in the cabinet by & the prolongation of Paschendale. I shall be most interested to see the effect which this & book produces upon you. I shall not expect you to agree with it. Nonetheless I hope & you'll read it with attention. I read your book about the Civil War very carefully. It & is a valuable contribution to the study of the problem of the supreme command at the & outbreak of a great modern war. It will be a long time before a satisfactory solution is & devised, but happily we may hope that a long time will be accorded us." & It is interesting how the country recoiled in horror at the slaughter in World & War I. Of course, the world was not accorded "a long time" before the next war. & Less than six years after Churchill wrote this letter, Adolf Hitler came to power & in Germany. Soon Churchill was calling for rearming in anticipation of another & conflict with Germany, and in 1940 he would himself be called upon to lead the & British Commonwealth in the Second World War.

        Lazarus [by Andreyev] and The Gentleman from San Francisco [by Bunin], SIGNED [Gospodin iz San-Frantsisko]

      Boston: The Stratford Company, 1918. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of the first edition in the English language, first printing, of each of these two works in the Publisher's original buff paper covered boards (general rubbing and edge wear, some cracking at the spine edges), SIGNED BY IVAN BUNIN on the half-title. Each work was translated to English by Avrahm Yarmolinsky. Famed Russian author of novels, short stories, and plays, Leonid Nikolaievich Andreyev was an active supporter of democracy during the first Russian Revolution (1905) which brought a number of concessions from the Tsar, and strongly opposed the Bolshevik excesses of the second Revolution, leaving for Finland in 1917. A master of the short story and author of "The Gentleman from San Francisco", Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin won the 1933 Nobel Prize in Literature for "the strict artistry with which he has carried on the classical Russian traditions in prose writing", making him the first Russian writer ever to win the Prize. Bunin also won Russia's Pushkin Prize multiple times, and counted other great writers, such as Vladimir Nabokov among his admirers. The best-known of Bunin's short stories (one could, and perhaps should, call it a novella), "The Gentleman from San Francisco" was first published in Russia (1916) to great discussion and general acclaim. At least one Russian critic of the day, A. Derman, maintained that, after the deaths of Tolstoy and Chekhov, nothing worthy of note appeared in Russian Literature until publication of "The Gentleman from San Francisco". In his 1933 presentation speech, Per Hallström, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, cited "The Gentleman from San Francisco as being "the novella that came to be his most famous work" and pointed out that it was "immediately accepted as a literary masterpiece". Here we offer the first appearance of the story in the English language. [About 4 years after publication of the book offered here, Leonard Woolf published "The Gentleman from San Francisco and Other Stories" (1922) containing a later translation of the tale by D. H. Lawrence and S. S. Koteliansky.] Copies of the true first edition in English of this important short story, offered here, are quite scarce, especially when in collectable condition, and are even scarcer when in a condition as nice as is this copy. Furthermore, this novella is Ivan Bunin's debut publication in English, adding to the importance of this edition. Signed copies of any of Bunin's works in English translation are as scarce as hen's teeth, and signed copies of the book offered here are RARE. [Auction records reveal only 2 signed Bunin works having come to auction in the last 40 years, each of them in Russian and one being a second printing.] A Very Good + copy of an important short story by the Nobel Prize-winner Ivan Bunin, his debut publication in English, published together with "Lazarus" by his acclaimed fellow Russian author Leonid Andreyev, and SIGNED BY IVAN BUNIN. AN IMPORTANT WORK AND RARE INDEED.

        Hunger Breeds Madness--Woodrow Wilson: America's Food Must Save the World [poster]

      United States Food Administration [ca. 1918-1919], (N.-pl.) - Roughly 20 by 30.25 inches. Stone lithograph printed by Schmidt Litho in San Francisco. Produced late in the First World War or soon after the armistice, the poster promoted the US Food Administration (USFA), led by Herbert Hoover, which was responsible for feeding most of Europe in the immediate aftermath of the war. The image depicts a European city in the background and a family in the foreground. A woman sits slumped over her dead or dying child, an empty bowl at her feet. The boy's father stands, fist clenched, a torch in the other hand, staring at the city. President Wilson's quote, 'Hunger breeds madness' and the image suggests anarchy if Europe is allowed to starve. Grebs (1877-1964), a native of Germany, was the San Francisco art director for Foster and Kleiser Co., which produced this poster for the USFA. He also taught commercial illustration at the California School of Fine Arts (alongside Maynard Dixon), lectured at Stanford, and later headed his own commercial graphics firm. Mounted on linen. A few small tears have been repaired in the margins. With a few small areas of abrasion where the surface was apparently cleaned, mostly in the printed border.

        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. 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.

        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.

        Citation a L'ordre de L'Armee (U.S. Marine Corps French Fourragere Certificate)

      [Washington, DC): U.S. Marine Corps, 1918. Very nice example of an official Marine Corps reprint of the French battle citation issued to the 4th American Brigade of the 2nd Division recognizing the 5th Marine Regiment, 6th Marine Regiment, and the 6th Marine Machine Gun Battalion for their actions at Belleau Wood which entitled members of those units to wear the fourragere. These generic certificates, which were issued to unit members, are scarce in their own right, however this example comes with the official English translation, and more importantly, the almost never seen mailing tube. . The multi-color certificate (12" x 18.5") is in much nicer shape than is usually found. It has some wear and soiling, but no chips, ragged edges, or missing pieces. The colors are still strong as it has been stored in its mailing tube. The certificate has been rolled for almost 100 years, but will flatten out nicely if framed. The smaller translation page is printed in black on white paper. It has some wrinkling, closed edge tears, and a small marginal hole. The mailing tube shows some wear and is missing one of the end caps; about 2/3s of the attached mailing label is present. The tube is addressed to Leo F. Hartm[an]. Hartman was a private in the 74th Company, 1st Battalion, 6th Marines. He was wounded in action at Belleau Wood on 17 June 1918 during one of the unsuccessful attempts to clear Germans from the forest. Hartman recovered and returned to his company until he was wounded a second time during the first days of the Battle of Blanc Mont Ridge on 4 October 1918. . Certificate. Very Good.

        THEY SHALL NOT PERISH Campaign for $30, 000, 000 / American Committee for Relief in the Near East / Armenia - Greece - Syria - Persia

      This the original lithograph printed by the American Lithographic Co. The image is a female with arm up holding a sword which is angled horizontally across the top of the image with a shield behind it. The figure has a helmet-like hat in red, white, and blue stars and stripes. The figure is clothed in a long dress with many folds. An American flag comes from the right of the figure around her back, then down and around a young girl who is clutching the legs of a female figure. The background is a dark charcoal, the background of the text at the bottom of the poster is a light grey. The main colors are white, cream, grey, soft blue, and a bright red and soft red. This poster was designed and executed by Douglas Volk. His name is printed in written characters on the poster with a 1918 date. His monogram is above the plate signature, in white. (Douglas Volk b. 1856 - d. 1935. He studied under Jean-Leon Gerome at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He was professor and and the first director at the Minneaolis School of Fine Arts in the years before and after 1890. He was a portrait artist, some with detailed landscape backgrounds. He was also well known for historical paintings. There are three horizontal and one vertical fold marks - gentle, soft folds. The image is in fine condition, the edges of the poster have some wear - three corners are chipped (nickel size) . There is a closed tear a little above the center on the left that extends into the image about 3/4 of an inch, then in an up direction for about two inches - closed tear. There is an edge chip at the top - about 3/4" into the margin from the edge. There are two pin punctures in the margin about 1 inch away from the image - top left corner. The paper is generally crisp and clean. No smudges, no foxing. The poster is covered with an acetate. The acetate and lighting creates a vertical glare that is not present on the print. All folds are soft folds, not hard creased. The image size is 37" h x 24 7/8" w. The outside dimensions of the poster are 40" h x 30" w. The poster will be carefully packaged. ; -

      Mountain Cottage, Middleton by Wirksworth, Derby. 26 July 1918.. One and 1/2 pages, in ink, on recto and verso of half-sheet (200 x 146 mm) of ruled notepaper. Right margin a bit ragged where sheet was halved, a few corner creases, small pinholes in upper left corner, otherwise very good. In an attractive batik paper over boards folder, and folding half morocco case. To "Dear Mrs. Henry", i.e. Nancy Henry, an editor at Oxford University Press who was involved in the editorial work on Lawrence's pseudonymously published MOVEMENTS IN EUROPEAN HISTORY (1921), and it has been suggested, was an early reader of sections of STUDIES IN CLASSIC AMERICAN LITERATURE (1923). Lawrence writes: "I send you the first three chapters. They are perhaps rather long. The others, some of them, will be much shorter. I wanted to make a serious reader that would convey the true historic impression to children who are beginning to grasp realities. We should introduce the deep, philosophic note into education: deep, philosophic reverence. I've no doubt your people won't like this style. I shan't mind if they don't want me to go on. But please tell me your own full opinion ... I wonder what Vere [i.e. H. Vere Collins, who suggested the project] has decided. " He touches on other matters in conclusion ("...my cottage is let ... I haven't any news yet about poems. It is always so slow....") and signs: "Greetings from us both D.H. Lawrence." Published in the Huxley edition of Lawrence's LETTERS (pp.450-1) but omitted from the Moore edition.
