        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. Provenienz: Galleria Schwarz, Milano mit dem entsprechenden Galerieaufkleber auf der Rahmenrückwand Referenz: Dada in Zürich 59 mit Abbildung auf Seite 168 - Schad Dada.

        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).

        Contest Friars VS. Lambs For United War Work Campaign

      Carey Show Print, New York - Poster. Page measures 85 1/2" x 40" This large scale World War I poster features patriotic red, white, and blue fonts to underscore its message. The Friars and the Lambs, two organizations operating at the time of the War (and still today), participated in fundraising contests for the United War Work Campaign or UWWR. That 1918 campaign was charged with raising $170,000,000 to help demobilize the army and maintain morale in the final few years of the war. The campaign was a success, and was at the time recognized as the largest fundraising event in history. This poster is a wonderful vestige that illustrates the willingness of all different organizations to demonstrate their devotion to the nation's troops. It is in very good condition, and is creased at the folds as issued. Scarce.

        Verses Of A V A D

      The First UK Printing published by Erskine MacDonald in 1918. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light rubbing to the upper edges and a little pushing at the spine ends. Mild toning to the text block and page edges. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Very small ink mark to the lower front pastedown which has slightly offset to the half title. The book has no end papers - as issued. The binding is tight with some early hinge loosening in a few places. A slim book of only 46 pages. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good ++ condition. Mild edge wear with a little loss at the spine and flap ends. Rubbing to the spine and along the flap folds. A few nicks with a small closed tear to the rear cover edges. The red titling remains bright to the spine with the correct issue price of 2/6 net to the spine. A small area of loss with some adjacent rubbing to the front upper cover. The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The author's first published collection of poetry which was dedicated to her fiancee Roland Leighton who had been killed in action in 1915. The book also contains the poem 'To My Brother' (Capt. E.H. Brittain M.C.) which had been written four days before his death in action on the Italian Front in 1918. Brittain had abandoned her studies at Oxford University and had trained as a nurse and had gone off to France, as a member of a Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD). 'Verses of a V.A.D.' were written whilst Brittain was on active service. She would go on to have her her masterly autobiographical account of this period 'Testament Of Youth' published some 15 years later. A very rare survivor with such attributes of what was a cheap post war production. I can locate no other copies for sale worldwide at the time of listing and less than a handful of copies in institutions, mostly without the scarce wrapper. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        My Ally

      Dies ist ein seltenes, sehr gut erhaltenes und faszinierendes Kriegs-Nazi-Propagandakreis, das Churchills Kriegs-Allianz der Bequemlichkeit mit Stalin lächerlich macht. Es wurde von den vermutlich von den Deutschen speziell dazu erstellt, um gefangene britische Soldaten für den britischen Freikorps zu rekrutieren, die SS-Einheit aus britischen Truppen. Diese englische Sprachausgabe wurde an britische Kriegsgefangene verteilt. Versionen sind in Kroatisch, Französisch, Deutsch, Norwegisch und Schwedisch bekannt, aber bei weitem die wichtigste ist die englischsprachige Version. Das Format enthält Zeitungskarikaturen, die Stalin auf jeder rechten Seite mit Noten und Churchill-Zitaten kritisch gegenüber dem stalinistischen Russland auf entgegengesetzten Seiten kritisch sind. Die Wirkung ist ein stechender Kontrast zwischen Churchills Kriegsallianz der Notwendigkeit mit seiner langen Geschichte der glühenden antikommunistischen Stimmung. Das Buch misst 8 5/8 x 6 Zoll, ist 110 Seiten lang und ist in cremefarbenen Kartenverpackungen gebunden. Die Titelseite listet Winston Churchill als Autor auf, wobei sowohl der Herausgeber als auch der Redakteur nicht spezifiziert sind. Es gibt eine unsigned, zwei-seitige Vorwort am Anfang und eine dreiseitige Liste von "Source of Reference" am Ende. Die Publikation war natürlich direkt auf Geheiß der Nazi-Regierung. Churchill-Bibliograph Ronald Cohen spekuliert, dass Wilhelm Liljencrantz der Verfasser gewesen sein könnte Enthält 110 Seiten illustriert mit monochromen Reproduktionen von Original-Bildern in englischen und amerikanischen Zeitungen und Zeitschriften mit Mastheads und Cartoons mit gedruckten Beispielen von Artikeln über Russland und Bolschewismus geschrieben von Winston Churchill zwischen 1918 und 1940 veröffentlicht.

Quarto, quarter cloth over papered boards (small water stain along bottom 2 cm of lower board, touching last couple of pages), lettered in gilt on the spine, in fine original illustrated dust jacket (small chips to head and foot of spine), patterned green A & R endpapers (bookplate to front pastedown, neat owner's inscription to front free endpaper), colour title page, 171 pp., illustrated throughout by Lindsay, slight foxing to half-title and final leaf, text block slightly loose, overall a very good copy. The Magic Pudding is without doubt the most famous Australian children's book ever published, and for nearly a century has never been out of print. Written for children but enjoyed as much by adults, the iconic characters of Bunyip Bluegum, Sam Sawnoff, Bill Barnacle and of course the Pudding have delighted for nearly a century. 'No matter how much the reader gets out of the story, there is, as with the Pudding itself, always something left' (National Treasures from Australia's Great Libraries, Canberra : National Library of Australia, 2005, p. 130). It is well documented how the idea of the Pudding was first cooked. Lindsay's friend and editor of Art in Australia Bertram Stevens claimed fairies were the most popular characters for children's books (an Outhwaite reference), while Lindsay thought characters based on food were more loved. To prove his point, he wrote the book and completed the 102 illustrations in 1917, and immediately upon publication in 1918 it was hailed a success, somewhat to the embarrassment of Lindsay. Published in large format, with a dust jacket, it was designed to appeal to the art collector as much as the child. 3000 copies were printed, but bound at different times, and as such some copies have white endpapers, rather than bearing the A & R monogram, and are lettered in black on the spine. This is an example of the first issue, with the A & R endpapers and the gilt lettered spine; it is also slightly larger than the second issue. Jane Lindsay (1920-1999, later Jane Glad), the eldest daughter of Norman and Rose Lindsay, recounts in her biography of her father Portrait of Pa : Norman Lindsay at Springwood (Sydney : Angus & Robertson, 1973, p. 45) childhood memories of learning to read through Norman reading aloud The Magic Pudding to her and her sister. 'We were allowed to appear at eleven o'clock in the studio. Pa put his feet up on the mantlepiece and reached for The Magic Pudding. This was our introduction to Pa's most important work of juvenile fiction. The fact that our own Pa had written it did not impress us at all. I doubt if we realised that he was the inventor of the book's collection of crazy characters. We just enjoyed them the way thousands of other children have been enjoying them all these years.' A well presented copy of the great Australian classic, rare in this condition. Muir 4263; People, Print & Paper, 229.

        The Road from Arras to Bapaume.

      1918 1918 - Small repair to lower part of the sky, an excellent richly inked impression, untrimmed. Presented in hand-finished stained oak frame with UV conservation glass. Original lithograph on Antique Deluxe laid paper. Image size 47.2 x 38.5 cm. Sheet size: 57 x 44.4 cm. Edition unknown but not exceeding 75 copies. Signed and dated lower right in pencil by Nevinson. First exhibited at the Leicester Galleries, London, March 1918. "Nevinson first learned lithography in 1912 All Nevinson's lithographs were made on stone, not zinc or transfer paper. 'I got back (to London in 1918) to find that a bomb had fallen on the printing works where my lithographs were kept and my stones were damaged. The reason for the extra ridge on my lithograph of the Arras-Bapaume Road is because I had to put it in to cover the injury done to my original stone" (Frances Carey & Anthony Griffiths, "Avant-Garde British Printmaking: 1914–1960", British Museum, London, 1990, p. 53). The lithograph is redrawn after the original oil painted in 1917, now in the Imperial War Museum. Nevinson's portrayal of the British supply route between Arras and Bapaume, with its soft contours, is a conscious echo of the traditions of English landscape painting, consistent with his change in style in 1917, forgoing the earlier influences of Italian Futurism. However, the road stretching beyond the horizon through bleak, featureless terrain also reflects the artist's first hand experience of the harsh conditions of the Western Front. He had served as a Red Cross orderly (1914–15), and with the Royal Army Medical Corps in France and Flanders (1915–16) before illness led to his military discharge in 1916. While employed as an official war artist Nevinson's work came under the close scrutiny of the War Office censor, Major A. N. Lee. Lee objected to the painting's initial portrayal of a left-hand traffic flow—the correct alignment on the Western Front was to the right—and Nevinson dutifully repainted the vehicles. Black 30 p130.

        Verses Of A V.A.D.

      The First UK Printing published by Erskine MacDonald in 1918. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light rubbing to the upper edges and a little pushing at the spine ends. Mild toning to the text block and page edges. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Very small ink mark to the lower front pastedown which has slightly offset to the half title. The book has no end papers - as issued. The binding is tight with some early hinge loosening in a few places. A slim book of only 46 pages. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good ++ condition. Mild edge wear with a little loss at the spine and flap ends. Rubbing to the spine and along the flap folds. A few nicks with a small closed tear to the rear cover edges. The red titling remains bright to the spine with the correct issue price of 2/6 net to the spine. A small area of loss with some adjacent rubbing to the front upper cover. The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The author's first published collection of poetry which was dedicated to her fiancee Roland Leighton who had been killed in action in 1915. The book also contains the poem 'To My Brother' (Capt. E.H. Brittain M.C.) which had been written four days before his death in action on the Italian Front in 1918. Brittain had abandoned her studies at Oxford University and had trained as a nurse and had gone off to France, as a member of a Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD). 'Verses of a V.A.D.' were written whilst Brittain was on active service. She would go on to have her her masterly autobiographical account of this period 'Testament Of Youth' published some 15 years later. A very rare survivor with such attributes of what was a cheap post war production. I can locate no other copies for sale worldwide at the time of listing and less than a handful of copies in institutions, mostly without the scarce wrapper.

        Manuscript - WWI American Red Cross - Racism Letter Against African American Nurse

      Honolulu, 1918. Frances Reed Elliot (1892-1965) was the first African American accepted into the American Red Cross Nursing Service, on July 2, 1918, only 16 weeks before this condescending letter. She was born in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her mother was a plantation heiress and her father an African American farm worker. When she was only five, her mother died. Shortly thereafter, her father left the area. As a result she was orphaned, and spent her early life in foster homes. After graduating from Knoxville College, she taught history for a few short years, then decided to pursue a career in nursing. She entered a nursing program at Knoxville College, but health issues forced her to withdraw. She later entered the Freedmen's Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1913. Her first job was as a private-duty nurse. Later, she worked at Provident Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, and completed additional courses at Columbia University. She applied to work for James Gavin Field Jr., formerly a surgeon in the U.S. Navy medical corps, and at the time having his own practice in Denver. She was denied this opportunity. Initially refused for American Red Cross service as well, on the basis of race, after writing a letter directly to corporate headquarters, Elliot finally succeeded in joining the organization in 1918. She wore Red Cross nursing pin 1-A, with the A signifying that its holder was African American. Freedmen's Hospital served the black community in the District of Columbia for more than a century, having been established in 1862 to cater for the medical needs of the thousands of African Americans who came to Washington, DC, during the Civil War, seeking their freedom. The first hospital of its kind to provide medical treatment for former slaves, it later became the major hospital for the area's African-American community. Since the Civil War, 30,000 African-American teachers had been trained and put to work in the South. The majority of blacks had become literate. However, while they persevered against long-standing racial prejudices to experience the equality and freedom touted by the American Constitution, they were continuously faced with oppression, lynching, random attacks, and continued segregation. In 1904 Orlando, Florida hires its first black postman. In 1908 Alpha Kappa Alpha - At Howard University, African-American college women found the first college sorority for African-American women. In 1910 The NAACP begins publishing 'The Crisis,' the official magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, designed "to set forth those facts and arguments which show the danger of race prejudice, particularly as manifested today toward colored people." In 1914 Newly elected president Woodrow Wilson orders physical re-segregation of federal workplaces and employment after nearly 50 years of integrated facilities. In 1916 Los Angeles hires the country's first black female police officer. Also in this year, The Great Migration begins and lasts until 1940. Approximately one and a half million African-Americans move from the Southern United States to the North and Midwest. The East St. Louis Riot took place in May-June 1917, and on August 23rd the Houston Riot. In 1918 Orlando's first black doctor opens practice. And, Miss Frances Reed Elliot became the first African American accepted into the American Red Cross Nursing Service. This highly tumultuous era continued for some time, and heightened activity of the most notorious Ku Klux Klan era lasted until 1924. The Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) was formed in 1882. Its primary function was to gather information on foreign navies with the goal of modernizing the American navy. But during World War I and the years after, the ONI also entered into the world of domestic security, a role solidified by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.. Very Good. Manuscript.

        Joan And Peter ( Association Copy : Signed By The Author )

      The First UK Printing published by Cassell and Co. in 1918. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Correct first issue blind-stamped green boards with gilt titling to the spine. The latter is slightly dulled. Mild pushing at the spine ends. Light spotting to the prelims and text block. The usual mild offsetting to the end papers. The pages remain clean and fresh. Free from erasures and inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. It is the correct first issue bearing the price of 9/- net to the spine. Moderate toning to the spine and flap edges with some light edge -wear to the spine ends. It remains very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Inscribed and Signed by the author to the half-title: 'A.T.S, with love from, H G'. The recipient is Arthur Thomas (Tommy) Simmons: "Wells met Simmons at South Kensington in London whilst they were students and they became close friends, taking an active role in the Debating Society and Socialist meetings. The two became regular correspondents with Simmons taking a keen interest in Wells' writings. He was the author of numerous textbooks and was for many years the editor of 'The School world'. The description of Barnstaple's old friend in "Men Like Gods' (chapter 7, section 3) reflects the reaction of H.G. Wells to the death of Simmons." {A H.G. Wells Chronology : J.R. Hammond : Macmillan Press 1999}. Joan and Peter is a satirical portrait of late-Victorian and Edwardian England, a critique of the English educational system on the eve of World War I, a study of the impact of that war on English society, and a general reflection on the purposes of education. Wells regarded it as "one of the most ambitious" of his novels. A wonderful association copy as evidenced by the warmth of the inscription 'with love.'. Scarce with such attributes. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

Arnoux (1886-1951) illustrated almost 80 books, including several of outstanding print quality, for Parisian publisher Devambez.

        [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. .
