        [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]

        A Guide to the Spoken Arabic of Mesopotamia

      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.

        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."

        WWI EAST AFRICA CAMPAIGN / MOZAMBIQUE (NORTHERN): MAP OF NORTHERN MOZAMBIQUE.

      Photo-lithograph in 3 colours, contemporary manuscript additions in red pen and pencil, mounted upon original linen with old folds, former owner’s inscription in pen to verso linen (Very Good, overall clean and bright, some minor toning along old folds, some very light stains, some wear at folds along margins), 98 x 74 cm (38.5 x 29 inches). - Pretoria: Government Printing Works, 1918. An extremely rare ‘top secret’ map that was one of the most important field maps used during WWI’s East Africa Campaign; the first scientifically accurate, detailed general map of Northern Mozambique, made by NORFORCE, a special British frontier unit, used as the blueprint to check the German General Emile von Lettow-Vorbeck’s guerrilla-style invasion of Mozambique. - This is one of the most important single maps of World War I’s East Africa Campaign. It has the distinction of being the very first scientifically accurate and detailed general map of Northern Mozambique, in addition to being the authoritative map used by British forces during their relentless, yet unsuccessful, pursuit of General Emile von Lettow-Vorbeck’s Schutztruppe through thousands of kilometres of jungles, swamps and savannas, from March to August 1918. The Northern Mozambique theatre featured some of the most dramatic action of the East Africa Campaign, which is regarded as one of the greatest frontier guerilla contests of all time, and the most suspiring, yet little known, major aspect of World War I. In essence, during this almost four-year long campaign, an increasingly large British force chased a small German-African army across modern Tanzania, Northern Mozambique and into Zambia. Lettow-Vorbeck was one of the history’s most ingenious and successful guerilla commanders, and all the while he evaded capture, while mounting devastating stealth attacks upon his enemy’s overextended supply lines. In the end, Lettow-Vorbeck was fighting in Northern Rhodesia, undefeated, when World War I ended, forcing his surrender. The present work is a separately-issued, large topographical map that specifically addresses the priorities of the cartography of military movement. Done to a scale of 1:1 000,000, the map embraces all of Northern Mozambique, Southern Nyasaland (Malawi) and adjacent areas of German East Africa (Tanzania). All significant rivers and lakes are carefully delineated, while all major points of elevation, being mountain ranges, hills and plateaus, are expressed thought hachures. The map also labels international and district boundaries, while naming internal divisions within Mozambique, such as the territory of the ‘Nyassa Company’, in the north, where most of the action occurred. Importantly, the map labels every major transport route, including ‘Railways’, ‘Motor Roads’, ‘Main Roads’, ‘Smaller Roads and Paths’; as well as the locations of ‘Missions’, ‘Bomas’ (ranches), and ‘Villages’. Critically, the map also highlights points of military interest, such as frontier forts and communications infrastructure, such as ‘wireless stations’. The accuracy and detail of the work is totally unprecedented on a general map of the region. Notably, the map features some manuscript additions, in both red pen and pencil, which seemingly trace itineraries along roads and rivers. These were almost certainly added by British military officers during the war, as the lines correspond to known British travel corridors. The map was made by, and for the use, of the Nyasaland and North-Eastern Rhodesia Frontier Force, better known as NORFORCE (its telegraphic code), a special infantry unit based in Nyasaland (Malawi), that was amongst the most effective and daring British detachments of the campaign. From 1916, NORFORCE was lead by General Edward Northey (1868 - 1953), a seasoned veteran of the Second Anglo-Boer War, who more recently was wounded while fighting on the front lines at Ypres (1915). NORFORCE maintained a strength of 4,000 men of a rich demographic mixture and background, with troops from Britain, South Africa, Uganda, Northern Rhodesia, Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland. This range of experience allowed them to acclimatize to the frontier environment much better than many of the other British units. The present map bears the line ‘Compiled and drawn by SA Topographical Section, NORFORCE – Zomba, 24th February, 1918’, r

        [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.

        THAILAND – WWI VICTORY PROCLAMATION BROADSIDE: ROYAL PROCLAMATION ON THE OCCASION OF THE GREAT VICTORY OF THE ALLIES. (TRANSLATION).

      Folio Broadside (47.5 x 28 cm / 19 x 11 inches), lithographed (Good, some old folds and light staining, mounted upon archival Japanese tissue). - [Bangkok], November 19, 1918. An extremely rare broadside issued by the Royal Court of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) of Siam, celebrating the Allied victory in World War I, translated into the English language and published in Bangkok for the benefit of Siam’s Western expatriate population. - This extremely rare broadside was printed on the orders of the Royal Court of Siam (Siam would not become Thailand until 1932), in the name of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), and celebrates the end of World War I, and Siam’s role as one of the victorious Allied powers. The broadside was issued in the English language (after a Thai language broadside) for the benefit of the many Westerners resident in Bangkok, some of whom wielded significant influence upon their home government’s attitudes towards Siam. In this sense, the broadside was a key part of Vajiravudh’s ongoing (and highly successful) nationalist propaganda campaign, which sought to stoke patriotic sentiment at home (to the benefit of this rule), while strengthening Siam’s status abroad. While the broadside was certainly issued separately, some examples were also included as insets within the November 19, 1918 edition of the Bangkok Times, a newspaper, which since its founding in 1887 had been the main public information vehicle for Westerners in Siam. Like all official royal documents, the royal vignette of the Chakri Dynasty tops the broadside. Beneath, the text commences: "On the 22nd of July of the present year I invited the Siamese people to unite in an intercessional prayer involving the Holy Buddhist Trinity and the Virtues of the departed Sovereigns of the Royal Chakri Dynasty to grant aid and vouchsafe victory to the Grand Alliance over our enemies." The King then gives details with respect to the Allies’ momentous global military achievements during the war, which are framed as "the triumph of Right over Militarism and of Civilization over Barbarism". In honour of the victory, the King then extends an invitation to the Siamese people to attend a massive patriotic-religious celebration to be convened at the Royal Plaza on December 2, 1918 (the anniversary of his coronation), where Vajiravudh will be joined by "the Princess of the Royal House, the officials of the Governments, the officers and men of My Army and Navy, and Corps of Wild Tiger Scouts [the King’s special armed corps], [and] there offer up a Thanksgiving Prayer to the Holy Emerald Image of our Lord Buddha. (M.R.) Rama R, Given at the Ambara Palace, Bangkok, on the nineteenth day of November, B.E. 2461 (1918.)" Historical Context: King Vajiravudh, the Rise of Thai Nationalism & Siam’s Role in World War I - The present broadside marks a key event in the brief, but consequential, reign of King Vajiravudh (Rama VI, 1885 – 1925, reigned 1910-25) of Siam. Vajiravudh was known for his efforts to promote Thai nationalism towards further uniting the country under the rule of the Chakri Dynasty and to augment the global prestige of Siam in an effort to protect its sovereignty. Vajiravudh succeeded his father, King Chulalongkorn (Rama V, reigned 1868 – 1910), who was considered a great ruler, responsible for the profound social and economic modernization of Siam. However, Chulalongkorn, between 1889 and 1909, had been forced to make massive territorial concessions to Britain (in Malaya) and France (in Cambodia), as well as to sign a series of ‘unequal treaties’ that gave Westerners undue legal and economic privileges within Siam. His son found these concessions humiliating and Vajiravudh became almost obsessively determined to prevent further territorial losses and to roll back the unequal treaties. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTIONS. A Note on Rary - The present broadside is today extremely rare, like pretty much all such ephemeral works produced in tropical climates. We can locate only a single institutional example, at the National Library of Thailand (Bangkok), while we cannot trace any sales record. References: Broads

This album was probably published to advertise life of the Ottoman soldiers in the newly occupied city.
