        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.

        "Arab Types". Album of Arabian portrait photographs. Syria, c. 1918.

      1918. 8vo. 15 black and white photographs captioned in white, plus one repeat in a smaller print. Original board album, acquired from "M. Arthur, Beyrouth". Paper label to upper cover: "Arab Types. Syria". Small but fascinating collection of portrait photographs showing Arabian nobles as well as commoners, all captioned and the subject often identified by name and tribe. The photos, many of which are executed as highly expressive profile studies, were taken and assembled by Lt. Col. Walter Francis Stirling (1880-1958), Chief of Staff to T. E. Lawrence. While the present photographs were taken during his time with Lawrence, whom Stirling revered, it is not his British comrades but rather the striking features of the sheikhs and bedouins on which this collection is focused. Among the images are "Sheik Gawaileh of Nejd, one of Lawrence's Bodyguard", and "Sheikh Hamondi, Friend of Lawrence"; others are more ominously identified as "Yezidi Shepherd, Devil worshipper" or "Bad type of Hadadiyim Tribesman". Of many noble tribesmen here depicted, such as Fauraz ibn Sha'laan, Emir of the Ruwalla, or Sheikh Daham al-Hadi, Paramount Sheikh of the Shammar tribe, these probably constitute the only photographic record. - Stirling was trained at Sandhurst and served in the Transvaal operation during the Boer War before being seconded to the Egyptian Army in 1906. He spent five years patrolling with an Arab battalion on the Eritrean and Abyssinian borders. Throughout WWI he served at Gallipoli and the Palastinian campaign until he was appointed chief staff officer to Lawrence of Arabia, who called him "Stirling the imperturbable". In 1937, Stirling would reflect on his famous wartime comrade: "From then [early 1918] throughout the final phase of the Arab revolt on till the capture of Damascus, I worked, travelled, and fought alongside Lawrence [...] We sensed that we were serving with a man immeasurably our superior [...] In my considered opinion, Lawrence was the greatest genius whom England has produced in the last two centuries [...] If ever a genius, a scholar, an artist, and an imp of Shaitan were rolled into one personality, it was Lawrence." In 1919 Stirling became advisor to Emir Feisal and Deputy Political Officer in Cairo, then acting governor of Sinai and Governor of the Jaffa district in Palestine before moving to Albania in 1923 to take up a position advising and assisting in the reorganisation of the Albanian Ministry of the Interior.

        Autograph letter signed, and with original woodcut. Zehlendorf-Mitte (Berlin), 24. XII. 1918.

      1918. 4to. ¾ pp. Feininger writes to Paul van Ostayen (1896-1926), Flemish avant-garde poet related to the Dada and Expressionist movements, who influenced modern literature in Belgium and the Netherlands. Towards the end of the First World War van Ostayen had gone to Berlin for political reasons, stayed for three years and befriended Feininger and other artists and literary figures. Feininger invites van Ostayen to join him and his wife on Boxing Day. "The five pictures have not arrived yet, but we mustn't wait for them in offer to be able to welcome you - Because of the pitiful state of transportation it is very uncertain now when they will arrive. We wish you a non too dreary Christmas [...] in the strange Big City! Only a very easy spirit would talk of 'Merry' now [...]" (transl. from the German original). - An original woodcut showing a church or cathedral in the upper left corner on this golden yellow sheet of onion skin paper. The woodcut is also suggestive of the Bauhaus 1919 Manifesto cover. The paper is fragile and tattered along right and left edges not affecting text. - In the year prior to this letter of 1918, Feininger had his first solo exhibit at Sturm Gallery in Berlin. He was Walter Gropius' first faculty appointment at the Bauhaus in Germany which Gropius founded in 1919. Feininger became the master artist in charge of the printmaking workshop.

        The giant Cormoran was the terror of all the country-side

      1918. Jack the Giant Killer"RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "The giant Cormoran was the terror of all the country-side" [London, 1918]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing, signed "Arthur Rackham" on lower left-hand corner, for the color plate facing page 76, in the Rackham-illustrated edition of English Fairy Tales. London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1918. Image size: 10 x 7 5/8 inches: 254 x 194 mm. (board size: 11 1/4 x 7 15/16 inches: 286 x 202 mm.). Matted, framed and glazed. Written on the back of the watercolor in black ink, in Arthur Rackham's hand "A. Rackham/English Fairy Tales./No. 1 (Jack the Giant Killer)"."In those days, the Mount of St. Michael in Cornwall was the fastness of a hugeous giant whose name was Cormoran. He was full eighteen feet in height, some three yards about the middle, of a grim face, and was the terror of all the country-side. He lived in a cave amidst the rocky Mount, and when he desired victuals he would wade across the tides to the mainland and furnish himself forth with all that came in his way. The poor folk and the rich folk alike ran out of their houses and hid themselves when they heard the swish-swash of his big feet in the water; for if he saw them, he would think nothing of broiling half-a-dozen or so of them for breakfast. As it was, he seized their cattle by the score, carrying off half-a-dozen fat oxen on his back at a time, and hanging sheep and pigs to his waistbelt like bunches of dip-candles." (Jack the Giant Killer).In this stupendous watercolor, Cormoran is scouting for victims in the middle of a village. He has at least two oxen slung over his shoulder and four pigs tied to his waistband. His face is exactly what a giant's face should look like - really ugly with crossed-eyes and an underbite like a bulldog. In the background, villagers are scurrying away over the fields and low stone walls outside the village and in the foreground we see a small dog running towards two villagers and their child who are hiding the other side of a pigsty.Another woman villager is ducking out of Cormoran's way and in the house to his right is a little boy peeping out of an upstairs window. The feeling of fear is overwhelming in this incredible watercolor - Rackham manages to depict the sheer terror of these poor people and the feeling of total domination that Cormoran has over them which is clearly established in the stance and demeanor of the giant.Provenance: Sessler's Bookshop, Philadelphia with their typed description on back of frame.

        KLEIN - RANIERS WELTREISE

      HILDEBRANDT, LILY. GERMAN. (HILDEBRANDT,LILY) KLEIN - RANIERS WELTREISE. Munchen: Georg W. Dietrich, 1918. Large oblong 4to (12 3/4 x 10 1/4"), pictorial boards, [32]p., a Fine nearly as new copy in the original plain dust wrapper (dw with some fraying but VG+). 1st edition. THIS COPY HAS A WARM INSCRIPTION FROM LILY TO ARTIST KURT WEINHOLD (AN ARTIST OF THE NEUE SACHLICHKEIT MOVEMENT) BELOW WHICH IS A CIRCA 1914 MOUNTED PHOTO OF LILY, HER HUSBAND HANS AND THEIR BABY SON RANIER FOR WHOM THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN. Featuring 14 fabulous, stylized color lithographs by Hildbrandt with bold geometric shaped pictures, and with pictorial endpapers as well. Written for her son Ranier, each illustration faces verse printed in a large font. Lily was experimenting using abstract design and modern art in children's books and the result is breathtaking. Lily Hildebrandt studied art with Adolf Holzel, first in Stuttgart and then in Munich where she met her husband Hans. Hans was a highly educated, leading figure in the German art and architecture world, writing, teaching and lecturing. He and Lily were close friends with Walter Gropius (with whom she had an affair), Wassily Kandinsky, Willi Baumeister, Adolf Holzel and others. In 1935 Lily's work was labeled degenerate and banned by the Nazi's because she was Jewish. Hans's work was also terminated because he was married to a Jewish woman. For years they lived in fear, especially because their son had been arrested by the Gestapo for being a conscientious objector. They all survived the war. This is a special copy of a striking book, rare in this remarkable condition. See Bilderwelt 60.

        World War One America Soldier's Trench Diaries and Papers

      France, 1918. Diary. Very Good. Exceptional two-volume journal (about 125 pages) kept by an Infantry Officer in the 7th Division during World War One. The diaries are in nice shape. Collection also has other post-war related items including a calling card engraving plate showing, medical records, will, obituary, etc. The 7th Division, the last Regular Army division to arrive in France, was rushed through in-country training to the trenches near Villers-en-haye in October, 1918 where it conducted a reconnaissance-in-force and prepared for the massive 2nd Army Offensive, which was cancelled with the signing of the Armistice at 11 o'clock on 11 November just as the doughboys were to "go over" the top. Unlike most World War One diaries or letter collections, Van Pelt notebooks provide a detailed description of life in the trenches. Some of the entries include: - "Terrific bombardment kept us awake practically all night. . . . Trenches muddy as the devil. . . . Enemy plane flying around and 'Archies' (anti-aircraft guns) got busy. Shrapnel dropped around us in trench and in front of dugout." - "About 9 o'clock . . . everything opened up until about 1:30 am we get our first gas alarm." - "Hear that Evans and Yeager were killed . . . Capt. Johnson gave me Evans ring which I will take to his mother after the war." - "Had a devil of a bombardment during the night and early the next morning the enemy opens up. . . . rifle and machine gun fire kept up at front for two hours." - "Quite a bit of small arms fire during early morning. Shelling continued . . . about 300 yards to our right. . . . Went over to outpost . . . Capt and I get sniped at by a machine gun." - "They dropped a devil of a fire all around us . . . ending about 6am. . . firing continues . . . artillery cuts loose." - "Making final setting to go over. Get everything set to pull out for jumping off place on a minutes notice. . . . Artillery continues to raise the devil. . . . About 11 a.m. we hear that all hostilities and firing ceases at 11 a. m." - "Hear I was reported Dead for several days." Van Pelt continued on active duty after the war until 1925 and died in 1928. Although his obituary stated that he died as the result of complications from a gas attack injury, Van Pelt actually died from testicular tuberculosis which he contracted while in France. The diaries are in nice shape. Collection also has other post-war related items including a calling card engraving plate showing, medical records, will, obituary, etc. As of 2016, the Rare Book Hub shows no auction records for similar American trench diaries and only three records for similar British trench diaries.

L'officier d'aviation François de Lagerie (Angers 1895- Casablanca 1921) est représenté sur la terrase du palais de Dar Batha dominant la ville de Fez au Maroc. Bernard Boutet de Monvel réalise le portrait en pied de son ami, pilote comme lui dans la 551ème escadrille commandée par le Comte de Montjou. Pendant cette période de guerre, Bernard BOUTET DE MONVEL se refusait à faire des portraits à l'huile. Il s'agit d'un dessin très abouti où la ville de Fez apparait en prolongement du portrait dans une architecture très géométrique dont l'artiste a le secret.

        Paysages: Suite de dix images inédites dessinées et gravée sur bois par monsieur Eug. Corneau.

      Paris: A la belle édition [François Bernouard], 1918. First Edition. Rare portfolio of beautiful color woodblock prints by the French landscape painter and engraver Eugène Corneau (1894-1974). Published in an edition of 416, this is one of 300 on Arches (no. 178). Square 8vo, [4], [9] pages, with 4 pages consisting of the title and edition limitation, and 9 loose pages of color woodblocks, beautifully heightened with watercolor and laid inside a paper folder. All inside an illustrated chemise that has been cut along the two folds and shows the 10th woodblock on the cover. The woodblocks are in Near Fine condition, with some showing a bit of fading. Chemise slightly soiled and water-stained at bottom of the front panel, not affecting the cover woodblock. Folder protecting the woodblocks has a split on one of the two folds. OCLC WorldCat lists only one institutional holding, at the Art Institute of Chicago. A gorgeous production and rarely seen in the market. RARE. The riotous colors of these prints indicate that the artist, Eugène Corneau, had been influenced by the Fauves. And the publisher, François Bernouard, was a key figure in the Paris literary world during the first half of the 20th century. Among many works, he published Blaise Cendrars' J'ai tué, an important livre d'artiste illustrated by Fernand Léger.

Square 8vo, [4], [9] pages, with 4 pages consisting of the title and edition limitation, and 9 loose pages of color woodblocks, beautifully heightened with watercolor and laid inside a paper folder. All inside an illustrated chemise that has been cut along the two folds and shows the 10th woodblock on the cover. The woodblocks are in Near Fine condition, with some showing a bit of fading. Chemise slightly soiled and water-stained at bottom of the front panel, not affecting the cover woodblock. Folder protecting the woodblocks has a split on one of the two folds. OCLC WorldCat lists only one institutional holding, at the Art Institute of Chicago. A gorgeous production and rarely seen in the market. RARE. The riotous colors of these prints indicate that the artist, Eugène Corneau, had been influenced by the Fauves. And the publisher, François Bernouard, was a key figure in the Paris literary world during the first half of the 20th century. Among many works, he published Blaise Cendrars' J'ai tué, an important livre d'artiste illustrated by Fernand Léger.

        "Livres Russes et Français"

      1918Paris, affiche lithographiée pour les Éditions Jacques Povolozky, (1918), 65 x 50 cm, 50 x 40 cm (format à vue), signée dans la planche. Les Éditions Jacques Povolozky, doublées de la Galerie La Cible, tirent sa notoriété de sa spécialité dans la Bibliophilie d'Art et ses travaux avec les cubistes, les Dadaïstes et plus particulièrement Nicolas Beauduin, André Lhote, Léonce Rosenberg, Albert Gleize, Marie de La Hire mais aussi Drieu La Rochelle, Fernand Léger, Ivan Goll, Philippe Soupault, et Francis Picabia. Ces travaux avec les Russes, dont Gontcharova, furent remarqués dès 1917. Natalia GONTCHAROVA (Negaevo 1881- Paris 1962) est dessinatrice et décoratrice de théâtre. Elle travaille dès 1906 avec Serge DIAGHILEV, puis avec Ida RUBINSTEIN, RIMSKI-KORSAKOV, pour les Ballets Russes de Monte-Carlo. Epouse de Mikhaïl LARIONOV, ses thèmes s'inspirent de l'icône, la paysannerie et l'image populaire russe avant de s'orienter vers l'abstraction avec le rayonnisme. L'affiche est un tirage original avant la lettre, cubisant, aux cinq couleurs et aux formes géométriques. Cette affiche de librairie, réalisée par Natalia GONTCHAROVA, représente deux lectrices en costume traditionnel Russe, dont les lectures propagent la culture Franco-Russe de l'éditeur.Infimes déchirures et plis, deux perforations en bordure hors des repères de découpes et très légères salissures.

        THE FIRST NEWS

      1918. [1 of 25 copies] London: Privately printed by Clement Shorter, August 1918. Original grey wrappers. First Edition, being one of only 25 copies. This piece appeared that same month (August 1918) in the periodical Reveille. In it Conrad recalls what it was like, exactly four years earlier, when "the first news" of the outbreak of war reached his home town of Cracow, Poland.~This was the second of the six very-limited issues that Shorter produced for Conrad (the first had been ONE DAY MORE). Though the title page says "for private distribution among my friends," these instant-collectibles were actually money-making efforts by the perennially-short-of-cash Conrad. The limitation page of this copy bears only the limitation statement; over the years we have had three other copies -- another like this, one bearing a Roman numeral (copy number?) and Shorter's initials, and one with no number but inscribed by Shorter to someone.~This is a fine copy. Cagle A23. Housed in folding cloth case -- which bears the bookplate of the notable collector Lord Esher (Oliver Brett, Third Viscount Esher, 1881-1963).

        Report of the Director of the National Parks Service to the Secretary of the Interior for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 1918

      Washington DC: Government Printing Office, 1918. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. Emerson Hough (1857-1923) was an author who specialized in stories of the American West. In the 1890s he made his first trip to Yellowstone and advocated for anti-poaching laws that applied to National Parks. A longtime supporter of National Parks, and a very vocal proponent of the establishment of the National Park Service in 1916, it is likely that this was presented to Emerson by National Park Service Director Stephen Mather in appreciation for his ongoing National Park Service Support. 284 pp. 8vo. Pebbled brown leather cover with gold embossed titling to cover and "Mr. Emerson Hough" embossed at lower right corner of front cover, light scuffing overall. Marbled endpapers. Quite clean within.

        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.

        Portrait of Alexander Pushkin.

      Yalta 1918 - Pencil and gouache on brown paper pasted on cardboard (30.5 ? 21.8 cm), signed and dated by the artist in the bottom margin, presentation inscription by the artist in pencil in the upper margin: "???????? ?????? [.] ????? ????????????? ?????? ?? ???????? ??? ??????????? ???????? ???????? ??? ? ???????? 16 IV 1951, ?????" [To my dear and gentle [.] Gleb Vladimirovich Chizhov towards the enriching of his Pushkin collection. Sincerely yours, N.Zaretskiy. 16 IV 1951, Paris]; traces of glue and paper on reverse, margins slightly chipped without affecting drawing, small marginal waterstain in right margin. A lively portrait of the great Russian poet, presented by the artist to an important bibliophile and collector. The drawing was competed by Zaretskiy (born in 1876 in Ukraine–1959 in Paris) in 1918 in Yalta, just at the start of his émigré journey through Constantinople to Western Europe. Once settled in Paris in 1951, he presented it to the Russian émigré and bibliophile Gleb Chizhov, whom he had met in the French capital. Having started his career as a military, Zaretskiy later received training as a professional artist. He first emigrated to Berlin, where he was a chairman of the Berlin Union of Russian painters, sculptors and architects [Soyuz russkikh zhivopistsev, vayateley i zodchikh]. There he started developing his interest in Alexander Pushkin's oeuvre. He designed covers and illustrations for many émigré editions of Pushkin's works, including "Domik v Kolomne" [The Little House in Kolomna] (1920), "Grobovshchik" [The Undertaker] (1923), "Arap Petra Velikogo" [The Negro of Peter the Great] (1923), "Pikovaya Dama" [The Queen of Spades] (1924) and "Eugene Onegin" (1930). Having moved to Prague in 1931, the artist organised the exhibition "Russkoe obshchestvo epokhi Pushkina" [The Russian Society at the Time of Pushkin]. The exhibits were subsequently purchased all together by the President of Czechoslovakia Tomáš Masaryk for his personal library. Two years later Zaretskiy organised another exhibition - "Risunki russkikh pisateley" [Drawings by Russian Writers], which produced a huge resonance among the Russian diaspora. Never before were drawings of writers explored as an essential part of their creative process. A unique manuscript copy of the exhibition catalogue, which included 30 reproduced Pushkin's drawings, is now part of the collection of the Columbia University. The drawing was presented to Gleb Chizhov (1892-1986). He was a singer and composer of romances, which he performed under the pseudonym of Kholmskiy. Like a few of his emigre compatriots, he was combining this activity with a job as taxi driver in Paris. He was actively collecting books, ephemera and paintings, while keeping close links with some of the best representatives of the Russian avant-garde movement, such as Remizov. Interestingly, it was an accidental encounter with Chizhov that determined the future of another prominent collector of Russian art and books, René Guerra (b. 1946). Chizhov happened to be a driver of the taxi that Guerra took in Paris as a student. A conversation with the passionate collector provided Guerra with inspiration for many years ahead. Today his collection of Russian art is one of the best in Western Europe. He has also founded the Association for the Safeguard of Russian Cultural Patrimony in France, and compiled over 300 publications on Russian émigré culture. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      1918. Signed Limited Edition[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. 558). Large quarto (11 3/16 x 9 1/8 inches; 284 x 230 mm.). ix, [1], 132, [2] pp. Nine full color tipped-in plates with captioned tissue guards and fifty-two black and white text illustrations. Publisher's quarter vellum over parchment boards. Front cover and spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Pictorial endpapers. Neat ink signature dated 1918 on front endpaper, some minor dust soiling and very light rubbing to front board. An excellent copy housed in a fleece-lined, tan cloth slipcase.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." (Edmund Gosse),Latimore and Haskell, p. 48. Riall, p. 133.
