        Two early Army Air Service relics, owned by Douglas MacArthur's closest aide, Courtney Whitney

      [Washington, D.C.], c. 1918 - 1925. various. "A most unusual pair of artifacts related to the early career of Courtney Whitney (1897-1969) who is best known today as Douglas MacArthur's closest and most loyal aide, and one of the authors of the postwar Japanese Constitution. The first piece is the core of an early airplane's wooden propeller, 19"" x 7.5"" x 4"", with the center rotor plate adorned with the Army Air Service's 'Prop and Wings' emblem and the initials ""U.S."" Offered together with a pair of aviator's goggles which have been adhered to a cloth flight 'helmet' due to an accident involving Lieutenant Courtney Whitney. Both pieces bear the expected wear associated with age, but are in surprisingly good condition.Whitney's early military experience was with the Army Air Service at Bolling Field in Washington, one of the earliest military aviation facilities in the United States serving the Army Air Service—the predecessor of the Army Air Corps. Whitney, who served as a pursuit pilot at the base, was involved in an accident involving his plane which apparently caught on fire. Safely exiting the plane, Whitney pulled off his goggles, the rubber lining of which melted in the heat of the fire. Offered with a letter of provenance from a Whitney family member. "

        Arab Types". Album of Arabian portrait photographs.

      Syria, c. 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.

        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.

        A large period map detailing the American advance into the Rhineland as the Allied occupation began, only weeks after the November 11 armistice, and used by a member of Pershing's staff

      Various, 1918-1919. 32" x 50". "Printed map in two sheets, with ink and colored pencil annotations, 32"" x 50"", c. 1918. An untitled map encompassing Luxembourg and the central Rhine Valley, printed in German. Folds, minor losses reinforced with paper, creases, some tears and chips at margins, else very good.The present map depicts the phased advance of the American Army of Occupation into the Rhineland from December 1 to December 11, 1918 as it marched from Luxembourg to its headquarters at the bridgehead at Koblenz. United States forces consisted of 240,000 men in 9 divisions and remained in Germany until January 1923. French forces remained in the Rhineland until 1930 (and did not relinquish the Saar region until a plebiscite in 1935). The present map was part of a collection kept by General Robert C. Richardson (1882-1954). By the time the United States entered the First World War, Richardson, a captain, assisted in the rapid buildup of training of the American Expeditionary Force (A.E.F.) bound for France. Fluent in French, Richardson served as an aide and observer with foreign armies before being assigned to the Operations Division, General Staff, A.E.F. as a liaison officer in June 1918. In that capacity he was involved in the St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne Offensives. Following the Armistice of November 11, 1918, Richardson served on the Reparations Board of the Peace Commission in Paris and then as part of U.S. Army occupation forces in Germany stationed at Coblenz and later at Mainz. Richardson, a career Army officer was a member of the West Point Class of 1904, serving in the Philippines and as an instructor of modern languages at the United States Military Academy. During the Second World War, Richardson served as Commanding General of the Hawaiian Department, and was instrumental in training American troops in the fundamentals of jungle warfare and amphibious assaults.

        Two Typed Letters, Signed, Addressed to Louise Bryant and George Bernard Shaw [with] Original photograph of Bryant

      New York, 1918. Letter addressed to the journalist Louise Bryant, wife of John Reed, concerning the accompanying letter of introduction addressed to "My dear Shaw" (George Bernard). Apparently Harris had offered several letters of introduction to Bryant, though here he writes "On second thoughts [sic] I do not think my letters to the other people would help you much. They are prejudiced against me; but I hope you will have a good time and come back in the two months you fixed." To Shaw, Harris writes "This is to introduce you to Mrs. Reed, the wife of John Reed who has done such good work for us here in telling the truth about the Russian revolutionaries [...] She is now going to England and Ireland as I understand, to get the true view of things [...] She is fairminded, eager, sympathetic, and I am sure you will be glad to help her on her way." These letters were composed two months prior to the publication of Bryant's collected journalistic pieces Six Red Months in Russia, and we have been unable to unearth any evidence that Bryant's trip to England and Ireland ever took place, this period coinciding with the Reeds's taking up residence at Patchin Place in Greenwich Village. Two typed letters signed by Harris (that to Shaw signed twice) on Pearson's Magazine letterhead, both dated Aug. 24, 1918; with original envelope addressed to Miss Louis Bryant. Letter to Bryant with two manuscript annotations; letter to Shaw with manuscript postscript, "Why don't you write? Pearson's Magazine now is mine--Do you get it regularly? Ever, Fr. H." Mail folds as usual, envelope with a few tears, else Very Good or better. With original photograph of Bryant, possibly intended for a passport.

He is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, although he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist. He was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his renditions of dancers, racecourse subjects and female nudes. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and for their portrayal of human isolation.At the beginning of his career, Degas wanted to be a historical painter, a calling for which he was well prepared by his rigorous academic training and close study of classic art. In his early thirties, he changed course, and by bringing the traditional methods of a history painter to bear on contemporary subject matter, he became a classical painter of modern life.

        [An original watercolour illustration from Josephine Is Busy].

      An original, signed, watercolour painting (image size 196 x 285mm), with bodycolour, by Honor C. Appleton, beautifully displayed in a cream acid-free mount hand-ruled in gilt with an onlaid marbled paper panel within a clean, hand-made, and richly gilded frame; with the original exhibition label from Chris Beetles Limited, 10 Ryder Street, St. James's to the reverse; in fine and exquisite condition with no fading to the colours, beautifully presented in an immaculate gold leaf frame. An original watercolour illustration for Josephine Is Busy by Mrs. Henry Cowper Cradock, published by Blackie in 1918. It is a design for the dustwrapper, incorporating the book title and the artist's name in red. The scene depicted is entitled "All the toys run at Josephine to get their piece of paper". Honor C. Appleton (1879-1951) was a widely appreciated, and prolific, watercolour artist and children's book illustrator who is principally known for her work on Cradock's series of Josephine books, published between 1916 and 1940. Josephine and her battered toy friends are characteristically seen from a very low viewpoint, a few inches from the floor, with the skirting board as an indicator of scale.

        Codorniu Spanish Champagne Advertising Fan.

      Folding fan, paper with wooden slats. A little damage to one slat otherwise in very good condition. Mounted in a glazed box. An interesting advertising piece. The fan has a drawing by José Navarro y Llorens of a bottle of Raventos Codorniu as the body for a car with added wheels and steering wheel, and with a driver and passender astride the bottle. The fan was clearly meant for the British market with the text on the reverse reading "Codorniu Spanish Champagne. The Favourite Wine of H.M. King and Queen of Spain. First Prizes in all Expositions. Ask for it." In 1872, Josep Raventós produced cava for the first time in Spain using the ?Traditional Method? and established a completely new industry in the Alt Penedès region. The Codorníu cellars at Sant Sadurní d'Anoia were built on the orders of Manuel Raventós between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century (1895-1915). He chose the renowned Catalán architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, to design the facility. At that time Codorníu was producing about 100,000 bottles of cava per year. Born in Valencia in 1867, José Navarro Lloréns was influenced by several of Spain's greatest Romantic and Impressionist masters, including Mariano Fortuny and Joaquín Sorolla. With an innate talent for capturing the effects of light and colour, Navarro Llorens travelled to Morocco where he was able to exercise this aptitude to its fullest extent. The bright North African sun illuminated his palette, offering new patterns of clarity, colour and shadow. Navarro Llorens also discovered in Morocco a fresh subject matter. While he had always had a proclivity for depicting scenes of everyday life, the new themes he found in Morocco gave the artist the inspiration to compose some of his most beautiful and jewel-like canvases.

        World War One hand-drawn Certificate of Appreciation from the inhabitants of 40 Rue de l'Universite, Paris 7ieme, thanking Lt. Credo Harris [with] photo of Harris at Armenian Catholic Monastery at San Lazzaro.

      1918 - A wonderful pair of commemorative items; of World War 1 Paris; a hand- drawn certificate thanking Lt. Credo Harris, who oversaw a Red Cross shelter in the 7ieme; then an American soldier in Paris, later a Kentucky newspaperman and promoter of radio (and) a photo of Harris at Lord Byron's table at the Armenian Catholic Monastery on San Lazzaro, Venice in 1911.Titled "Immeuble du 40 Rue de L'Universite. Offert par Pierre Braun au Lieutenant Credo Harris. en Reconnaissance de. Vigilance pendant les Nuits de Bombardements." Decorated and illustrated by Braun, this hand drawn, lettered and colored certificate lists the names of 45 locals who stayed in the Red Cross shelter overseen by Harris, thanking him for the work he has done. The certificate is decorated with colored French, American, English & Belgian flags. At the head, it shows a rooster crowing "Viva les Allies". Besides the Braun family, it lists the families Badosa, Carraud, Cloise, Coussier, Frenay, Garnault, Leprince, Lemaire, Mabille, Hermann, Foly, Lecorgne, Peron, Pepin, Rocle, Sordello, Pajot and Verger.The Armenian Catholic Monastery at San Lazzaro in the Venetian Lagoon continues to be an important cultural institution for Armenians around the world. Lord Byron studied the Armenian language there, hence the silver print photograph of Harris with the priest Nerses Diratzouyan at Byron's table at the monastery, dated October 14, 1911. "Newspaperman, book author, radio announcer and managing director of Louisville station WHAS. Harris tirelessly advocated for the commercial development of radio, traveling to Washington D.C., sitting in on Department of Commerce meetings, pulling at the sleeve of then department head and future President of the United States, Herbert Hoover. Harris spoke the first words ever heard over the public airwaves of Kentucky, July 18, 1922 saying, "This is WHAS, the radiotelephone broadcast station of the Courier-Journal and Louisville Times in Louisville, Kentucky." If that wasn't enough, he also helped design the modern state Kentucky flag that today flies over the capitol dome in Frankfurt.'" (Lewis, John. Radio Master: The Life and Times of Sports Broadcasting Great Ted Husing. Langdon Street Press 2010.) Harris was the author of "Microphone Memoirs of the horse and buggy days of radio", Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis, Indiana (1937). Certificate 8.5 x 13"; photograph 3.25 x 4.25".

        Photograph Album Documenting American Espionage in Siberia, 1918

      Siberia, Russia, 1918. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album appears to have been prepared by a YMCA worker and contains 20 pages of 81 3"x4" black and white photographs, all captioned and in very nice shape. Thd photographs include: Colonel Preston, the leader of the "American Mission" and his staf;, soldiers of the Czech Legion and the New Siberian Army; stations, facilities, and bridges along the Trans-Siberian Railway; the relief train; a Czech Legion armored train; Bolshevik prisoners; a pet brown bear;refugees and peasants; the house where Czar Nicholas and his family were executed; and much more. Bound with a leather thong, no cover. Very little wear to the album pages. Certainly unique and exceptionally scarce. Following the Bolshevik revolution during World War One and Russia's subsequent peace treaty with the Central Powers, America's access to its only significant source of platinum, a metal urgently needed for the production of airplane engines and "liberty" motors, was cut off. The Soviets confiscated all of the known platinum stocks within the country and major black market supplies soon became prohibitively expensive. To fill the shortfall, the Commerce Department arranged for a somewhat shadowy American fur trader operating from a business office in Riga, George L. Preston, to receive a "commission" as a Colonel in the Red Cross and lead a humanitarian mission to provide YMCA supplies to members of the Czech Legion who were moving east along the Trans-Siberian Railway. In actuality, Preston had heard of the platinum requirement and suggested to the government that he would be able to obtain what was needed from as yet unconfiscated stocks from small mines in the Ural Mountains as well as a secret stock-pile at Ekaterinberg (now Sverdlosk) that were in areas controlled by the anti-Bolshevik New Siberian Army. Preston assumed control of the relief train in Vladivostok and traveled west along the railroad avoiding both Soviet and German agents while exchanging either cash or cans of Boston baked beans for the precious metal. When the train reached Ekaterinberg, Preston was able to make his final surreptitious purchase from a local banker. Throughout the trip, Preston was hailed for his humanitarian work and treated as an important dignitary. He served as the reviewing officer for Czech and Siberian parades, and at Ekaterinberg, he was one of the first westerners to be shown the house where Czar Nicholas and his family had been executed. While at Ekaterinberg, Preston was secretly informed his real mission had been discovered and that the Soviets were planning traps to capture the train. Hurriedly, the train returned to Vladivostok where Preston turned over the platinum to the Consul General who in turn transferred it to the Admiral in charge of the U.S. fleet in the port. Preston booked passage on another vessel to the United States and upon arriving, traveled to Washington where he filed his official report. Immediately after, he traveled to his home in Campello, Massachusetts to visit his family. Within 3 hours of his arrival there, Preston mysteriously died, purportedly of exhaustion and stress. Photographs include: Colonel Preston and the staff of the "American Mission; Soldiers of the Czech Legion and the New Siberian Army; Stations, facilities, and bridges along the Trans-Siberian Railway; The relief train; "A Czech Legion armored train; Bolshevik prisoners; A pet brown bear; Refugees and peasants; The house where Czar Nicholas and his family were executed; and much more.

        Das komplette Leben des Lübecker Bürogehilfen und Soldaten Ludolf Müter (1894-1918)].

      [um 1917-1918] - Dünnes braunes Lederetui, ca. 12 x 19 cm (quer) mit Spuren eines Granatsplitterdurchschlags (?), darin verschiedene Papiere. Dazu eine Kart.-Mappe mit Kordelbindung, 35.5 cm mit weiteren Beilagen. Konvolut von hinterlassenen Papieren des Lübecker Kataster-Eleven und Soldaten Ludolf Müter (13. Oktober 1894 - 16. Mai 1918). Müter war 1909 als Lehrling zum Lübecker Katasteramt gekommen und arbeitete dort bis zu seiner Einberufung zum Militärdienst 1914 als Bürogehilfe und Hilfszeichner. Nach Stationen bei verschiedenen Regimentern wurde er Teil eines Artillerie-Meßtrupps (später Licht-Meßtrupp) und war unter anderem im Osten stationiert, wo er 1917 im Rang eines Gefreiten die Kämpfe um Riga miterlebte. Die Aufgabe der Lichtmeßtrupps war die Artillerieaufklärung. Die Position feindlicher Geschütze wurde dabei anhand ihrer Mündungsfeuer kartiert. Von März 1918 an war Müter in Frankreich, im Raum St. Quentin stationiert, wo er am 16. Mai 1918 starb. Mutmaßlich - so die tradierte Familienüberlieferung - an Verletzungen durch Granatsplitter - den selben Granatsplittern, die auch seine Lederetui, das er bei sich trug, durchschlugen. In dem Etui befinden sich Müters Tagebuch vom 16. Februar bis 31. August 1917 (42 beschriebene Seiten, OKLdr.-Umschlag, farbiger Blattschnitt, 14,5 x 8,5 cm) und Müters Tagebuch vom 1. September 1917 bis zum 14. Mai 1918 (32 beschriebene, zahlreiche nicht beschriebene Seiten, schwarzer Umschlag, Fadenheftung, 16,5 x 10,5 cm). Dazu eine Porträt-Postkarte von sich in Uniform und zwei Bilder seiner Verlobten (?) Erna Welz. Und eine halbzerfetzte Feldpostkarte, rückseitig in Bleistift beschrieben: ".doch ich bleibe bei meinem Wort: 'Der Teufel hol' sie allesamt'!". Dazu einige Papierfragmente und Fragmente zweier Ordensbänder (Müter war Träger des eisernen Kreuzes II. Klasse und des Lübeckischen Hanseatenkreuzes). Bis auf das erste Tagebuch tragen alle Papiere massive Zeichen von Geschosseinwirkung (beschädigt sind meist nur die Randbereiche - das jüngere Tagebuch wurde am unteren Rand getroffen. Die Fotos oben. Das Tagebuch mit Textverlust). - Die Tagebücher enthalten Adressen von Freunden, Listen gefallener Freunde, Angaben über empfangene oder abgeschickte Pakete und tägliche, meist knappe Notizen: Angaben zu seinem Dienst, zum Alltag in Stahlgewittern ("tägl. Trommelfeuer") und zum Wetter ("außergewöhnliches Abendrot", "starke Kälte und Schnee"). Auch Ausflüge während eines Heimaturlaubs sind notiert - so etwa ein Cafébesuch in Stockelsdorf im September 1917. Mit Wetterbeobachtungen enden die Eintragungen am 14. Mai 1918: "Naßkaltes Maiwetter". ----- Beiliegend 1.: Mappe mit Übungsarbeiten des Kataster-Eleven Ludolf Müter. Die Mappe enthält sehr saubere Entwürfe von Zeichnungen für das Lübecker Katasteramt, Katasterbuchauszüge, Planabschriften, Handzeichnungen, ein Zeugnis, etc. Als "Als Hülfszeichner wurde er mit der Anfertigung von Handzeichnungen und Plänen, einschl. deren Kolorierung und Beschreibung, mit kleineren Kartierungen [.] vertraut; er ist Stenograph und tüchtiger Maschinenschreiber und verfügt neben einer guten Handschrift und Rundschrift über eine besonders schöne Kunstschrift", so das Zeugnis vom 16. Dezember 1914. Die Zeichnungen tragen zum Teil Stempel oder Prägestempel des Lübecker Katasteramts. Zu den Plänen zählt u.a. "Projekt zur Anlage einer Verbindungsstraße zwischen der Klappen- und Wickedestraße" (1910 - mit farbigem Planausschnitt - ohne die noch nicht vorhandene Segebergstraße). Die Mappe enthält außerdem eine Bildpostkarte des Stenographen-Vereins Stolze-Schrey zu Lübeck von 1908. - Beiliegend 2.: Die Todesanzeige vom 23. Mai 1918 ("Den Heldentod für das Vaterland fand [.] der Zeichner und Bürogehilfe Ludolf Müter"). --- Das Konvolut war 2014 als Leihgabe Teil der Ausstellung "100 Jahre Erster Weltkrieg in Lübeck" im lübeckischen St. Annen-Museum. --- Alle Dokumente mit teils deutlichen Spuren der Benutzung und des Kampfes, jedoch insgesamt von sehr guter Erhaltung. 602 Gramm.
