        Jockeys (Les) camouflés et période hors-texte. Edition ornée de cinq dessins inédits de Henri Matisse.

      Paris, sans nom (Paul Birault), 1918 (30 décembre) ; in-4, broché ; (40) pp. non paginées, 5 dessins à pleine page hors-texte et couverture crème imprimée, dos muet. Le papier vergé des dessins est plus fin que celui du texte, relativement épais.Edition originale et la seule approuvée par les auteurs, tirée à 105 exemplaires, tous numérotés (celui-ci N°48) et avec justification manuscrite du tirage inscrite dans un ovale à l'encre.Cette édition est bien l'originale ; en effet, une édition est parue chez Bernouard quelques temps auparavant mais elle n'avait pas obtenu l'accord de Pierre Reverdy et de Henri Matisse qui la désavouèrent totalement, la ramenant au rang de "contrefaçon" ou de pré-originale. Imprimée en rouge, vert et bleu pastel, cette "première" édition, tirée à 343 exemplaires, ne respectait pas l'esprit du texte et des illustrations et fut donc rejetée par les deux auteurs.Malgré quelques toute petites taches et traces de gommage à la couverture, l'exemplaire est en bel état général.

        Die Fischreise. Ein Bilderbuch. Berlin, Peregrin-Verlag (Druck: Offizin H. Birkholz, Berlin), 1923. Quer-4to. (23 : 29,5 cm). 14 nn. Blatt mit 12 ganzseitigen, handkolorierten Illustrationen von Tom Seidmann-Freud. Or.-Hlwd. mit handkolorierter Deckelillustration; etw. bestoßen u. abgegriffen, Deckel stärker braunfleckig, Kolorit verblasst.

      - Murken, Seidmann-Freud 6; Stuck-Villa II, 304; Hoffmann/Thiele, "Künstler illustrieren Bilderbücher" 193; Valentin Merkelbach in: Das Bilderbuch, S. 301ff. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe dieses Meilensteins der modernen Bilderbuchillustration. "Mit kubistischen Mitteln der Abstraktion, die an Klee und Feininger erinnern, werden aus wenigen Elementen die Bilder konstruiert und auf den jeweils zentralen Bildgedanken hin konzentriert. (.) Wenn man diese Illustrationen mit der ornamentalen Ruhe der Bildtafeln des "Neuen Bilderbuchs" von Tom Seidmann-Freud aus dem Jahre 1918 vergleicht, so zeigt sich, wie das bereits abstrahierende und stark stilisierende Malverfahren des Jugendstils dort in der "Fischreise" um im eigentlichen Sinne expressionistische Stilmittel erweitert ist" (Doderer/Müller S. 303). - Exemplar mit stärkeren Mängeln und Gebrauchsspuren: durchgängig im Unterrand u. der rechten unteren Ecke (außerhalb der Darstellung) finger- bzw. braunfleckig. 2 Blatt je ca. 8 cm seitlich vom Falz her eingerissen (bei einem Blatt bis ca. 2 cm in die Illustration). Bei sieben Seiten etwas Farbabklatsch auf den Text, aber lediglich bei einer Tafel Kolorit in der unteren Ecke leicht verschmiert. Die letzte Illustration mit kleinem, kindlichen Bleistifteintrag "Ende". Buchblock fast lose und das vord. fliegende Blatt geknittert u. mit Randeinrissen im (durchtrennten) Falz.

        Typed letter signed. Whitehall, 25. I. 1918.

      1918. 4to. 1½ pp. on double leaf. As Minister of Munitions, a stern wartime letter to his recalcitrant colleague Joseph Paton Maclay, 1st Baron Maclay (1857-1951), on gaining essential military raw material from Spain and Narvik (Norway): "Your letter of the 22nd inst. does nothing to relieve my anxiety. Whether importations of Ore from Northern Spain or from Narvick are considered, it is perfectly clear that shipments are now proceeding at a rate which must lead to a complete breakdown in the Iron and Steel production and so affect every industry concerned in the prosecution of the war. The Nitrate position is even more serious than the iron and steel, because in this case the whole supply is seaborne, and the entire process of ammunition filling will come to an abrupt arrest. It is, further, very difficult for me to proceed without any idea of what the future has in store. I failed entirely to obtain any answer on this point from your Department. I have to make an enormous series of arrangements for the supply of the Army which depend absolutely upon Raw Material, and we cannot be told even generally within what limits we may expect to be supplied. I have been pressing for information on this vital point for more than three months without receiving anything in return except your invariable courtesy. I really do not know what to do [...] As it is we weem to be moving forward to a complete administrative breakdown [...]". - On stationery with printed letterhead of the Ministry of Munitions; punched holes at top left corner.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1918 - 1918 Original Hardback Wisden. Very Good Condition. 9/10

      Hi, Here we have a very rare 1918 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. This is a fabulous book, the only downside and this is being very picky is a bookplate has been removed from the front left page. You probably wouldn't notice but I have to point it out. The front board is superb, hardly a mark and bright gilt,the spine cloth is excellent with bright gilt, it really is a top book. Super rear board too. Excellent, original hinges, and very clean inside just an ex owners name to the front right pastedown. If being picky there is a slight bobbling to front board cloth and inside a sort of corrigated iron appearance for a couple of pages. A wisden to own and brag about. Average 1918s are appearing on line at 5k , no need to pay that much.

      Formulaire contenant l'autorisation de Gide en sa qualité de tuteur de Marc Allégret à son engagement dans l'armée de Sa Majesté pour la durée de la guerre. Il se présente comme un feuillet dactylographié de papier mince, 185 X 205 mm, à compléter à la main par les parents ou tuteurs du volontaire. Les mentions manuscrites ne sont pas de la main de Gide mais la signature autographe de Gide en tant que " guardian " ne fait pas de doute. Le formulaire exigeant de mentionner le nom d'un " witness ", c'est celui de Lady Jane Strachey, qui est indiqué avec son adresse d'Hampstead et sa qualité d' " householder ". Dans son étude très complète sur " Gide à Cambridge, 1918 " (BAAG n° 125 de janvier 2000), David Steel raconte que la famille Allégret décide au printemps 18 d'orienter Marc (18 ans) vers un bac latin-langues. Un séjour en Angleterre est jugé nécessaire. Gide s'offre aussitôt à accompagner Marc et les deux voyageurs quittent la France le 19 juin. Ils feront rapidement la connaissance de la famille Strachey dont la matriarche Lady Jane était une grande figure du mouvement des suffragettes. Selon Steel, cette rencontre ouvrira à Gide les portes d'un des centres les plus avant-gardistes et créatifs de la vie intellectuelle anglaise. Gide rencontrera ainsi Dorothy Bussy (née Strachey) qui deviendra sa traductrice attitrée en langue anglaise avant de connaître la gloire avec son roman " Olivia ".Dans une lettre (reproduite par Steel) du 10 août aux Rothenstein, Gide évoquera ainsi le projet d'enrôlement de Marc : " .... Hélas, l'appel de la classe de Marc va mettre un terme à ces joies. Il fait un dernier effort pour s'engager dans l'armée anglaise - mais sans grand espoir d'y réussir. " [Notre formulaire est daté du 18 août]Steel ajoute : " L'idée de faire son service militaire en Angleterre, agréée par sa mère, faisait l'objet de sérieuses demandes. En principe du moins, les services de recrutement de Cambridge n'y étaient pas opposés. On faisait appel aux bons offices de Sir Maurice Bonham-Carter ainsi qu'à ceux de Gosse. "Ces parrainages se révélèrent infructueux puisque les deux voyageurs reprirent le chemin du retour en septembre 18.L'escapade se termina tragiquement pour Gide qui apprendra de Madeleine, le 21 novembre, que sitôt son départ pour l'Angleterre, elle a détruit toutes les lettres qu'il lui avait écrites depuis leur jeunesse : " Je souffre comme si elle avait tué notre enfant... Peut-être n'y eut-il jamais plus belle correspondance ... "Document unique.

This is also the time of prodrazvyorstka (a Bolshevik policy and campaign of confiscation of grain and other agricultural produce from the peasants for a nominal fixed price according to specified quotas). Due to the low intake of bread on the state procurement the Provisional Government introduced a 'grain monopoly' - the transfer of the entire volume of produced bread minus the established norms of consumption for personal and household needs. The 'grain monopoly' was confirmed by the Council of People's Commissars decree authority from 9 May 1918.

        Legislation of Palestine 1918-1925. Including the Orders-in-Council, Ordinances, Public Notices, Proclamations, Regulations, etc. Alexandria, Whitehead Morris Ltd., 1926.

      1918. Large 4to (194 x 257 mm). 2 vols. XXII, 668, XXIII-XXXII pp. (2), VIII, 536, IX-XIV pp. Contemp. half calf with cloth covers. Collection of all legislation issued in British Palestine since December 1917 which was still valid and in force in 1926. "The collection does not represent the whole of the Palestine Law, because the Ottoman Law which was in force at the outbreak of the War remains the basis of the legal system of the country" (vol. I, p. iv). The laws governing the administration of the Palestine Mandate which followed the Balfour Declaration constitute crucial documents for understanding the transfer of power and the gradual replacement of Ottoman, Islamic, customary law by British and eventually Israeli law. Bentwich (1883-1971), the British-appointed attorney-general of Mandatory Palestine, was a prominent Zionist and wrote widely on the establishment of a Jewish Homeland. - Slight foxing to endpapers; ownership stamp "M. Fitzgerald". A scarce work in a good set. OCLC 22644076.

      RACKHAM, ARTHUR. (RACKHAM,ARTHUR)illus. SPRINGTIDE OF LIFE: POEMS OF CHILDHOOD by Algernon Swinburne. London: Heinemann (1918). 4to, green gilt cloth, near Fine. 1st edition. Featuring 8 beautiful color plates and 52 black & whitess by Rackham. Laid in is a 2 page handwritten signed letter dated February 5, 1930 from Rackham to a Mr. Taylor reading: "Here are the remaining drawings for Mr. Scheuer. You will see there are 23 of them. This number is reached (instead of 16) because in several cases there was more than one drawing on the same sheet of paper and they are now separated. In two cases there were two drawings: and in one, six. The above is now my permanent home address to which all communication had better be addressed as I shall be there much more than at my London studio (where I can be, at any time, by appointment). I wish I had been able to get these drawings to you before this and I very much hope Mr. Scheuer has not been inconvenienced. I need hardly say it has not been possible to do otherwise but I am now back at work again and completely recovered from my operation.

        The Son of Tarzan

      A. L. Burt, 1918 The Son of Tarzan, inscribed by the author to his daughter. A very early printing, inscribed by Burroughs to his daughter Joan "With love to Joan from Papa, Tarzana Ranch, January, 1923." Famously, Burroughs did not have a first edition of Son of Tarzan, because supposedly it was stolen from him by a young relative who needed the money to support a sad habit. Joan was involved in producing the Tarzan movies, and in fact at one point was assigned to find someone who could play Tarzan in one of the movies. She selected a prominent actor named James Pierce, and later they were married. Very good in a very good dust jacket, housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.. Inscribed by Author(s). 5th or later Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.
