        Photographs]: World War I African-American Sailor from Philadelphia

      1918 - A collection of 108 photographs, mostly taken by Walter Timothy, Jr., an African-American sailor from Philadelphia. 96 of the images are on shipboard or related, while 12 are (mostly older) images of the Timothy family, also two post cards, commercially printed (but which help provide the identification of Timothy). Various sizes, most are around 3.5" x 3.5", a fair number are real photo postcards. Some overall fading, a few with small ink splashes or creases, most are near very good, with a few better or worse. A majority are briefly but clearly captioned on the verso, a few on the margins or edges of the images.Service records indicate that Walter Timothy, Jr. enlisted in the Navy in 1911 and served throughout the duration of World War I on convoy ships and escorts. He also later served in WWII. The vast majority of the Naval images represented here (and likely all of them) were taken during the War, and depict a number of topics that would indicate that fact, including a destroyer standing by a disabled hydroplane floating nose down in the ocean, pictures of depth charge explosions trying to sink subs, several of dirigibles and "captive" observation balloons tethered over the ship, several of troop convoys in formation, divers going down in harbors looking for mines, survivors from a French fishing boat sunk by a U-boat. Also included are a few images of ship pets including cats (one walking along the barrel of the aft-gun), a dog, a goat mascot, airing bedding on deck, an image of a collision at sea between two U.S. ships, one odd image of what looks like a German soldier attempting to bayonet a French fisherman (certainly staged, as the next image shows them laughing together), a barber giving a haircut on the deck, many images of big guns and mines on deck in racks, a few in the engine room of ships both American and British.Many are of Timothy's shipmates, almost all of them white (including one curious fellow, "Monkey Baldwin" who in a couple of images was kept on a leash and acted like a chimpanzee), another of all-bald shipmates. Only one image shows a group of black shipmates, perhaps stewards. The jovial nature on board would suggest that Timothy was on good terms with most of his white shipmates.The family images, mostly with Philadelphia photographers marks are mostly of females, several captioned, although one identifies Walter (in dress and with long hair) as a 16-month old toddler. Census records indicate that after the war Walter went to work for the U.S. Postal Service. Despite the fading that impacts the aesthetic quality of some of the images, still an easily viewable and a fascinating collection of images depicting the course of service of a black sailor during the World War I, and very uncommon thus.

      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.

Camp at Cedar Bluffs, (Nebraska?); at another Oh! Camp at Valley Park, (Missouri?); on a "St. Louis-Mazda Boat Excursion"; north of St. Louis at Chain of Rocks; at "Chautauqua" (which could be one of any number of places). In several of the images the women are dressed as men. The photos are dated through 1917 and show the women delighting in each other's company. There are photos of them in bathing costumes at various Oh! camps, hiking, and posing on a ship.

        [Photo Album]: A Photo Album of an Ohio Family's Life through Two Generations, 1918 to 1943

      Canton, Ohio / Chicago. 1918-1943. Oblong quarto measuring 11" x 7". String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 295 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1" x 2.5" and 4.5" x 4" with some captions. Cover and first page detached but present, small chips and tears thus good with fine photographs. A collection of photographs from Canton, Ohio in 1918 through 1943 showing a young woman's family and friends when she is a young girl and following her life until she has children of her own. There are two magazine cut outs showing the "Members of the Ohio State Dental Laboratory Guild and Their Ladies," in which the woman is seen with her husband F. C. Hoffman. The first few photos are of the woman's family standing solemnly together with very few smiles; however, the vast majority of the photos are of the woman and her friends having adventures together. Some of the photos are of the young people at a lake, swimming at the beach, camping in the woods, and visiting different cities and locations some of which include Chicago and Geneva, Ohio. Later photos show the group of friends getting older, having kids, and then their kids becoming adults in a 25 year time span. The woman's son at 18, is pictured wearing a World War II Army uniform in some of the last photos of the album. This extensive multiple era piece shows three decades of fashion, automobiles, and general tom-foolery that young people of the time got into in Ohio. .

        Just 18 days after the armistice was signed ending World War I, Zionist Vladimir Jabotinsky and sisters Bella and Nina Berligne, each in uniform, signed this postcard in Jaffa, Palestine.

      Jaffa (Palestine), November 29, 1918. Please update Dimensions. "Rare Photograph Signed "V. Jabotinsky" in Hebrew on verso. Silver gelatin print, postcard format, 5.25" x 3.25". Jabotinsky is flanked by sisters Bella and Nina Berligne. Dated and signed "29/XI. 18 / Yaffa. / Bella" and signed "Nina." During World War I, Jabotinsky asked the British to establish a Jewish Legion which would fight alongside their troops against the Ottoman Empire which then controlled Palestine. With Joseph Trumpeldor, Jabotinski created the Zion Mule Corps of several hundred men, mostly Russians, who had settled in Egypt after being exiled from Palestine by the Ottomans (Turks). The Zion Mule Corps served with distinction at the Battle of Gallipoli but was then disbanded. In 1917, Jabotinsky succeeded in getting the government to establish three Jewish units in the British Army, the Jewish Legion. In 1918, Jabotinsky fought against the Turks in the Jordan Valley and was decorated for bravery. He is wearing his military uniform in this photograph. Bella and Nina Berligne are wearing armbands and hats, each displaying the Star of David. There does not seem to be much information on the Berligne sisters on the web. There is, however, a letter from Chaim Weizmann to Bella Berligne, June 20, 1920, in "The Letters and Papers of Chaim Weizmann" and there is a record of a Nina Berligne (1897-1963) buried in Tel-Aviv."

        A British Soldier's First World War Keepsakes Comprising: a commendation for gallantry from Secretary of State for War Winston S. Churchill; an original, hand-annotated trench map of Lens; a 1914 Field Service Pocket Book; and six embroidered, wartime souvenir postcards

      London, 1918. This is a British soldier's archive of First World War keepsakes. Included are: a commendation for gallantry from Secretary of State for War Winston S. Churchill; an original, hand-annotated trench map of Lens; a 1914 Field Service Pocket Book; six embroidered, wartime souvenir postcards. The commendation to “(A/L/C.) J. Johnstone” states his mention in a 16th March 1919 Despatch from Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig “for gallant and distinguished services in the Field.” In the First World War, future Second World War Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) remarkably served both in the Cabinet and on the front. Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty until 1915 and then, after being scapegoated for the Dardanelles tragedy, served as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. By the war's end, he was exonerated and rejoined the Government, initially as Minister of Munitions. On 9 January 1919 - the same month that the Paris Peace Conference convened - Churchill was appointed Secretary of State for War and Secretary of State for Air. This certificate was issued six months later, “1st July 1919.” The quite large and well-worn, hand-annotated Trench Map is of Lens, France. Lens fell under German control in 1914 and was recovered by British and Canadian forces in 1917. The map measures 84 x 64 cm and is printed on cloth with later, clear lamination on the verso. We note significant annotations in blue, most of them enclosed shapes with letter designations. The 1914 Field Service Pocket Book approaches near fine condition, bound in the original waxed canvas chemise binding with integral flap that folds over the fore edge. Measuring 17 x 11 cm, the book is 290 pages with pink paper advertisements for additional military books bound in both preceding and following the text. The contents feature several color fold-out illustrations. We note the purple ink stamp of “Thacker, Spink & Co., Calcutta” at the foot of the title page. Six souvenir postcards accompany the certificate, map, and book. These post cards are embroidered, several dated in the embroidery (1915, 1917, and 1918). All are addressed to “My dearest” or “My dear Clara” from “Will” except the 1918 card, which is addressed “fondest love to my dear wife from your loving husband | Will”.

        Analyse babylonienne. Originalholzschnitt auf Maschinenpapier. Von Christian Schad unten links betitelt und unten rechts voll signiert. 1918. 12,9 x 8 cm, Blattgröße 23 x 15,9 cm.

      Christian Schad schuf im Jahr 1918 eine Reihe von abstrakten Holzschnitten, von denen er jeweils nur einige wenige Abzüge herstellte. Zu dieser Gruppe gehört auch vorliegender Holzschnitt. Er ist der einzige Holzschnitt den Schad mit einem Titel versah und der in einer Auflage von 38 Exemplaren gedruckt wurde. Der Druckstock des Holzschnittes gilt als verschollen. Der Holzschnitt war als Beilage für die Luxusausgabe der Züricher Zeitschrift Dada 4/5 vorgesehen, die in einer Auflage von 38 Exemplaren erscheinen sollte. Von dieser Luxusausgabe wurden jedoch nur wenige Exemplare hergestellt und so ist zu erklären, daß sich allein im Nachlaß des Herausgebers dieser Zeitschrift noch 11 Exemplare befanden. Siehe dazu: Bern, Kornfeld & Klipstein, Auktion 126: Dokumentations-Bibliothek III. Teile der Bibliothek und Sammlung Tristan Tzara. Paris, Nr. 154. Schad war eng befreundet mit Walter Serner und Mitglied des Züricher Dadakreises. 2 weitere, abstrakte Holzschnitte steuerte Schad auch der im November erschienenen Dadazeitschrift „Der Zeltweg" bei. Von großer Seltenheit. Gerahmt.

        Vingt-cinq poèmes. (Édition de luxe). H. Arp: Dix gravures sur bois. Collection Dada. Zürich. Imprimerie Julius Heuberger 1918. 19,8 x 14,4 cm. 52 ungezählte Seiten mit 10 Original-Holzschnitten von Hans Arp. Originalkarton mit einer Original-Tuschpinselzeichnung von Hans Arp auf den auf dem Vorderdeckel aufgeklebten Goldfolienplättchen..

      Imprimerie Julius Heuberger, 1918. Originalausgabe. Vorliegend ein Exemplar der im Druckvermerk auf der letzten Seite aufgeführten Vorzugsausgabe sur hollande. Die Auflage dieser Édition de luxe wird dort mit 10 Exemplaren angegeben. Unser Exemplar ist auf der dritten Seite des Buches von Tristan Tzara signiert und als Exemplaire No. 9 bezeichnet und auf der gleichen Seite mit einer handschriftlichen Widmung Tzaras an die französische Schauspielerin und Sängerin Marcelle Favrel versehen. Marcelle Favrel stammte aus einer Pariser Bankiersfamilie und heiratete 1921 den amerikanischen Geschäftsmann David Jefferson-Cohn, dessen Namen Sie ab diesem Zeitpunkt trug. Der Druck auf starkem, weißen Hollandbütten sorgt dafür, dass das Buch doppelt so dick ist wie die Normalausgabe. Im Unterschied zur Normalausgabe, bei der ein Original-Holzschnitt von Hans Arp auf die Goldfolie des Einbandes gedruckt wurde, hat Hans Arp bei der Vorzugsausgabe auf die aufgeklebten Goldfolienplättchen des Einbandes eine Original-Tuschpinselzeichnung gemalt. Diese wahrscheinlich mit Hilfe einer Schablone ausgeführte Zeichnung verdeutlicht in eindrucksvoller Weise die enge Verbindung von Text und Illustration. Die Luxusausgabe des Werkes enthält insgesamt 10 Original-Holzschnitte, wovon acht ganzseitig abgedruckt wurden. Die Rückseiten aller 10 Blätter, die einen Originalholzschnitt tragen, blieben unbedruckt. Die Vingt-cinq poèmes sind Tzaras erste Gedichtveröffentlichung in Buchform. Für Hans Arp stellen die in dem Buch verwendeten Original-Holzschnitte die ersten Resultate seiner neugewonnenen Formensprache der biomorphen Abstraktionen dar. Herausragende Publikation dadaistischer Buchillustration. In der vorliegenden Vorzugsausgabe eine große Rarität.

        A History of the American People: Documentary Edition.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1918. First edition. Octavo, 10 volumes, bound in the publisher's three quarters morocco, gilt titles to the spine, contains numerous plates and illustrations. One of 400 copies, signed by President Wilson on the limitation page. An excellent set of this scarce edition of Wilson's history of the American people, first published in 1902, this expanded edition was published at the start of his second term as President of the United States. Rare. "Wilson wanted to enhance the presidency by establishing a direct link to the American people. He thought the president, as their spokesman, should be the preeminent leader of the democratic nation. Long convinced that the British parliamentary government was better than the American constitutional system, he exerted personal influence on the legislative branch in unprecedented ways...The first president to hold regular press conferences, he sought to shape public opinion by managing news from the White House. Moreover, he delivered messages personally to Congress, reviving a practice that George Washington and John Adams had used on a few occasions. From Jefferson through Taft, other U.S. presidents had submitted only written messages" (ANB). As a writer, Wilson "propounded his own frontier thesis to explain American history. Influenced by conversations and correspondence with historian Frederick Jackson Turner, Wilson now credited the frontier, more than the Anglo-Saxon heritage, with the rise of freedom and democracy in the New World" (ANB). "As a lecturer and writer Wilson had a genius for simplification, for the clarification of the complex and the explanation of the relation of things. These qualities he carried into his political speeches and they account in part, at least, for the effect he exercised upon men's minds" (DAB).
