LEWIS, John L
1919. Near Fine. Unbound. A small archive of documents pertaining to the organized labor career of W.A. Boyle. One of America's great power-brokers during his long life, John L. Lewis became acting president of The United Mine Workers of America in 1919. He finally retired in 1960 and was succeeded by Thomas Anderson, himself quite elderly and in failing health. When Anderson died three years later William Anthony Boyle took over the UMWA. "Tough Tony" Boyle consolidated the powers of the union president and was involved in widespread corruption. In 1969 Pennsylvania union leader Joseph Yablonski created a credible challenge to Boyle but ultimately lost, and was murdered with his wife and daughter a few days after the election. Boyle was convicted of ordering the murder and died in prison in 1985. Hollywood revisited the crime in the 1986 HBO film *Act of Vengeance* with Wilford Brimley portraying Boyle and Charles Bronson as Yablonski. Further details available upon request.

[Do Gravitational Fields Play an Essential Role in the Structure of the Elementary Particles of Matter?] Sitzungsberichte der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, XX (1919). Gesamtsitzung vom 10. April. Sonderabdruck [Offprint]). Berlin: Verlag der Akademie der Wissenschaften (in commission at Walter de Gruyter [Reichsdruckerei]), 24th April 1919. Imperial 8vo (25,4:18,2 cm). 8 pages, numbered 349-356. Letterpress on machine paper, in original publisher's brochure on cream stock with black title printing. First offprint in the original wrappers, of Einstein's important follow-up paper on the field equations in his General Theory of Relativity. Contents: In present paper Einstein suggests a modification of his field equations to allow for stable elementary particles. According to Pais this text "may be considered Einstein's first attempt at a unified field theory"” (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 287). Condition: Cover at margins minimally dusty, otherwise very fine indeed, probably unread. Rarity: According to Weil early offprints of Einstein's papers may also be qualified as original and also highly collectable editions, however they were printed in a certain, but still small print run for commercial use (mainly to sell them to fellow natural scientists): „No doubt, the first appearance in a periodical is the „original edition", but I have to leave it open for collectors, librarians and others to decide whether these offprints in wrappers, mostl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blasco Ibáñez, Vicente.
First English - language edition. New York, Duffield & Co., 1919. Octavo. 331 pages. Illustrated Hardcover. Near fine in publisher's illustrated boards with slight bumping to lower spine and light foxing to top of the pages. Signed by Ibañez on the titlepage. Vicente Blasco Ibáñez (29 January 1867 - 28 January 1928) was a journalist, politician and best-selling Spanish novelist in various genres whose most widespread and lasting fame in the English-speaking world is from Hollywood films adapted from his works. He was born in Valencia. At university, he studied law and graduated in 1888 but never went into practice. He was more interested in politics, journalism, literature and women. He was a particular fan of Miguel de Cervantes. In politics he was a militant Republican partisan in his youth and founded a newspaper, El Pueblo (translated as The People) in his hometown. The newspaper aroused so much controversy that it was taken to court many times. In 1896, he was arrested and sentenced to a few months in prison. He made many enemies and was shot and almost killed in one dispute. The bullet was caught in the clasp of his belt. He had several stormy love affairs. He volunteered as the proofreader for the novel Noli Me Tangere, in which the Filipino patriot José Rizal expressed his contempt of the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. He travelled to Argentina in 1909 where two new cities, Nueva Valencia and Cervantes, were created. He gave conferences on historical events and Spanish literature. Tired and disgusted with government failures and inaction, Vicente Blasco … [Click Below for Full Description]

Švec, Václav
1919. Irkutsk: self-published, 1919. Oblong octavo (23.2 × 25.6 cm). Original lithographed three-panel portfolio; eighteen leaves printed to rectos (lithographed?), measuring 22.5 × 24.7 cm. Signed and inscribed by the artist to front wrapper. Very light overall wear; a very good copy. Scarce, complete portfolio of lithographed caricatures documenting the travails, and occasional humorous moments, of the Czechoslovak Legion soldiers during their Siberian anabasis. Little is known about the artist, who was a trained sculptor from Horní Kn žeklady, in Southern Bohemia. His drawings poke fun at Czech military leaders, the Soviet enemy, the allies organizing the evacuation, and the Czechoslovaks back home, and are often difficult to decipher, containing numerous "inside jokes." This copy is warmly inscribed by Švec to a "poru ík Pištálek" in memory of "our 'sunny' days in Irkutsk." After the treaty of Brest-Litovsk effectively closed the Eastern Front, the Czechoslovak Legion forces found themselves on the side of the imperiled Tsarist troops as they moved East to Vladivostok and to transport ships bound for home. At one time, the Czech Legion controlled the majority of the Trans-Siberian Railway and significantly aided the White Russian forces during combat. Their effort on behalf of the White army was seen as benefiting their goal of an independent Czech state as propagated by Masaryk, free from Austro-Hungarian rule. This portfolio is among an impressive range of works which were printed in transit, at the mobile printing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Golechek, Kap. (Vojt ch Hole ek)
1919. Irkutsk: Izdaniem Informatsionno-Prosvietitel'nago Otdiela Chekhoslovatskago Voen. Ministerstva, 1919. Octavo (23 x 15.3 cm). Publisher's printed wrappers; 86, [1] pp. Contemporary owner signature by a Czech soldier stationed in Manchuria. Very good or better. Detailed anti-Bolshevik account of the state and activities of the Czechoslovak troops in Russia during the Czech and Slovak Legion's famous anabasis through the Russian Civil War. The work was first published in Czech in the same year, and is here presented to Russian readers interested in the Legion troops. After the treaty of Brest-Litovsk effectively closed the Eastern Front, Legion forces found themselves on the side of the imperiled Tsarist troops as they moved East to Vladivostok and to transport ships bound for home. At one time, the Czech Legion controlled the majority of the Trans-Siberian Railway and significantly aided the White Russian forces during combat. Their effort on behalf of the White army was seen as benefiting their goal of an independent Czech state as propagated by Masaryk, free from Austro-Hungarian rule. This book is among a range of works which were printed in transit, at the mobile printing shop of the Legion troops in their armored train, evidently somewhere between Irkutsk and points further east. The author, Captain Vojt ch Hole ek (1891-1969) was a Czech politician and, along with Rudolf Medek, the author of one of the definitive histories of the Czech Legion, in four volumes. Scarce in the trade.

Beston, Henry B.
First Edition. New York, Doubleday, 1919. Octavo. XIII, 254 pages. Original Hardcover in protective Mylar. Very good + condition with only minor signs of external wear. Signed and inscribed by Henry B. Beston with a letter typescript to Admiral William Sowden Sims. The inscription reads: „To Admiral Sims with every grateful good wish of the author - Henry Beston Sheahan - 1919". Henry Beston (June 1, 1888 - April 15, 1968) was an American writer and naturalist, best known as the author of The Outermost House, written in 1928. Born Henry Beston Sheahan in Boston, he grew up in Quincy, Massachusetts with his parents, Dr. Joseph Sheahan and Marie Louise (Maurice) Beston Sheahan, and brother George. Beston attended Adams Academy in Quincy before earning his B.A. (1909) and M.A. (1911) from Harvard College. After leaving Harvard, Beston took up teaching at the University of Lyon. In 1914 he returned to Harvard as an English department assistant. Beston joined the French army in 1915 and served as an ambulance driver. His service in le Bois le Pretre and at the Battle of Verdun was described in his first book, A Volunteer Poilu. In 1918, Beston became a press representative for the U.S. Navy. Highlights from this period include being the only American correspondent to travel with the British Grand Fleet and to be aboard an American destroyer during combat engagement and sinking. His second book of journalistic work, Full Speed Ahead, described these experiences. (Wikipedia).

After the First World War, Keynes attended the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 as a delegate of the British Treasury. In his book, he argued for a much more generous peace, not out of a desire for justice or fairness - these are aspects of the peace that Keynes does not deal with - but for the sake of the economic well-being of all of Europe, including the Allied Powers, which the Treaty of Versailles and its associated treaties would prevent..... =============== John Maynard Keynes, 1st Baron Keynes CB FBA (5 June 1883 - 21 April 1946), was a British economist whose ideas fundamentally changed the theory and practice of macroeconomics and the economic policies of governments. He built on and greatly refined earlier work on the causes of business cycles, and was one of the most influential economists of the 20th century. Widely considered the founder of modern macroeconomics, his ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics, and its various offshoots.
