        Collection of Letters from POW British Navy Soldier to Welsh Nurse

      Döberitz, Germany: 1915-1919 - [WWI] Collection of Letters from POW British Navy Soldier to Welsh Nurse Döberitz, Germany: 1915-1919. 41 pieces of WWI correspondence: 25 hand-written postcards, 14 hand-written letters, 1 Easter card, 1 photographic postcard of soldier Roberts. All written from William F.J. Roberts, a member of the Royal Navy Division of the British Army, a prisoner of war in Germany, to Kathleen Touzel Wynne-Edwards, a nurse from North Wales, UK (with the exception of one letter, which was written to Kathleen from Roberts' father.) Most written on Kriegsgefangenensendung "prisoner of war mail" postcards or letterhead issued by Döberitz, a few on blank paper, mostly written in pencil with the others in ink. Generally very good, with some toning and soiling, a few with tears to edges. William F.J. Roberts was a member of the Royal Navy Division of the British Army during World War I. The group notably participated in battles at Antwerp in 1914 and Gallipoli in 1915. Roberts was captured by the German Army following the Seige of Antwerp in 1914 and subsequently became a prisoner of war. He was detained at Döberitz, a military training camp in Germany that later housed POWs, and he endured the length of the Great War there. From September 6, 1915 - February 16, 1919, Roberts wrote to Kathleen Wynne-Edwards (née Touzel), a devoted and patriotic nurse from North Wales. In addition to their correspondence, Kathleen sent Roberts care packages containing food, clothes, and cigarettes. Additionally, she helped find correspondents for Roberts' fellow prisoners and assisted in war-relief efforts on the home front. Kathleen continued to write to Roberts through the war's end in 1918, her devotion not wavering even after getting married to John Wynne-Edwards in 1916 and giving birth to two daughters. In addition to chronicling the correspondence between a POW and a nurse, this collection of letters demonstrates the decomposition of romantic conceptions of war and the subsequent disillusionment that shaped the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s-1930s. Roberts is hopeful in his earliest letters to Kathleen, asking for cakes, clothing and cigarettes, and telling her of his pre-war civilian life. As his imprisonment extends, Roberts becomes less concerned about the food parcels Kathleen sends and more about the emotional sustenance of their friendship and communication. As the war continued well beyond its intended duration, soldiers on both sides became increasingly convinced that WWI would serve no purpose, leading to an increased disparity between the presentation of the war on the homefront and trench reality. Döberitz, a military training camp in Germany, was first used as a site for militaristic purposes in the 18th century. After the outbreak of World War I, a temporary prisoner of war camp was erected on the outskirts of Döberitz. By 1915, the complex included two newly erected buildings to house the increasing number of POWs. Before the war's end in November 1918, Döberitz would house more than 30,000 prisoners from seven different nations. Related People: Roberts, William F. J. - English soldier of the Royal Navy Division Wynne-Edwards, Kathleen Violet M. (née Touzel) - Welsh Red Cross nurse Roberts, J. - father of William F. J. Roberts Wynne-Edwards, Lieutenant-Colonel John Copner - married Kathleen Touzel in 1916 I. 1915 1. Roberts, William F.J. Four handwritten postcards and three handwritten letters addressed to Kathleen Touzel, from September 6 - December 26, 1915. In these letters, Roberts briefly introduces himself by referencing his involvement in the 1914 Seige of Antwerp and his home in Gloucestershire, England, where he resided with his parents. He also profusely thanks Kathleen for her parcels and makes several request for socks and other clothing items. 2. Roberts, J. One handwritten letter to Kathleen Touzel, December 15, 1915. J. Roberts writes to Kathleen to thank her for the kindness and devotion she has shown his son William F.J. Robe

Pictorial end-papers in green and white. Board edges a little rubbed otherwise a near finet copy."Rackham gave his talk to on Silhouettes to the Art Workers' Guild in November 1919, the month in which Cinderella, the first of his two great silhouette books, was published. Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty differed from Rackhams' preceding books in relying almost wholly for their effect on silhouette. It is immediately clear that Rackham is a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humour by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going. Silhouette books, even with additional colours had lower production costs than their colour plate equivalents, and so were an attractive option both for publishers and customers in the uncertain post-war market." (James Hamilton. Arthur Rackham, A Biography, p. 188).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 49-50. Riall, pp. 134-135. Hamilton, p. 189

        The Hill of Vision. A Forecast of the Great War

      Boston: Marshall Jones Company,, 1919. and of Social Revolution with the Coming of the New Race. Gathered from Automatic Writings Obtained between 1909 and 1912, and also, in 1918, through the hand of John Alleyne, under the supervision of the author. Script by John Alleyne. Octavo. Original grey boards, titles and decoration in green. With the dust jacket. Fine. First edition, first printing, an exceptionally fine copy in the jacket, of this collection of psychically produced pieces prophesying (from as early as 1909) World War I, obtained by the English architect, illustrator, archaeologist and "psychical researcher" Frederick Bligh Bond (1864-1945). He was a member of the Freemasons from 1889, the Theosophical Society from 1895, the Society for Psychical Research from 1902, the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia from 1909, and the Ghost Club from 1925. He is perhaps most famous for conducting the first ever dig in the discipline of what might be termed psychic archaeology, at Glastonbury Abbey. Convinced that the dimensions of the ruined buildings at Glastonbury were based on gematria (Cabalistic occult geometry), Bond in 1908 obtained directorship of excavations there. Using retired navy Captain John Allan Bartlett (the "John Alleyene" of this work) as his medium, Bond claimed to have contacted through automatic writing dead monks and the builder of the Edgar Chapel at Glastonbury, who advised him where to excavate. The excavations did rediscover the nature and dimensions of a number of buildings on the site, but when in 1919 he published The Gates of Remembrance, which revealed that he had employed psychial methods in his excavation, relations quickly deteriorated with his episcopal employers (who strongly disapproved of spiritualism), and he was eventually relieved of his directorship in 1921. The "ancestral voices, prophesying war" (to co-opt Kubla Khan) revealed in The Hill of Vision were obtained during the period of Bligh Bond and Captain Bartlett's Glastonbury excavations.

        Le Film (33 Issues)

      Pathe Freres, Paris 1919 - An impressive crop of 33 issues of this early, very uncommon Parisian trade magazine, issued by "Pathe Freres", one of France's (and the world's) leading film production companies at the time. Spanning 1918 and 1919 (the magazine's 5th and 6th years in existence), this weekly (and sometimes bi-weekly) offers a detailed, very sophsiticated look at mostly the world of French film and cinematography but also covers the world of French theatre, concert-going and music halls. Crisp black-and-white photos run thru each issue, as does wonderful multi-colored typography and design. Magazine-formatted, uniform, tall quartos in their stapled, pictorial wrappers. A razor-thin, innocuous crease running vertically along all of the front covers; otherwise, each issue is clean and crisp and easily VG+ to Near Fine. Internally immaculate as well, with no writing or markings to any of the issues. One of the great undertakings in early French (and international) cinema. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

IX of the preface and the statement "1.-6. Tausend". Includes eight-line autograph poem on flyleaf, signed "Th. Tiger" and dated 1920: "Ich gucke freundlich um die Oecke und greife voller Seelenruh der Muse unter ihre Röcke ... Und dabei, Leser, siehst du zu - ? Sie quitscht. Ich grinse. Sie verstehen: Nicht immer gilt der Klassik Maß. Denn was wir im Verborgnen drehen macht uns am allermeisten Spaß - ! 1920. Th. Tiger". - "This edition was printed in 50 copies, numbered, and provided by the author with an unpublished poem, signed". The book is so scarce that it is questionable whether fifty copies were indeed printed. The poem was first published by the Tucholsky Archive in 1978 (Bonitz/W. D 2790). - Slight staining to edges; spine and corners somewhat scuffed, otherwise well-preserved. Bonitz/W. C 4. Wilpert/G. 3.

      FIRST EDITION. 1st impression. Large 8vo. (10.1 x 6.5 inches). Illustrated with colour photo frontis, five maps-including one large folding, and 87 mono photographic plates. A near very good copy with the page edges browned, as usual with this book. This first impression was printed on poor quality paper and is prone to browning. Original publishers dark blue cloth with silver illustration of The Endurance to front board. Spine and front board lettered in silver. Publishers blind stamped device to back board. Inner front hinge cracked but firm. Some rubbing to the extremities and remains of a repair to a split, about 1.5 inch long, to the lower rear outer hinge where a previous owner had placed a matching blue cloth patch which covered the first few letters of the Publishers name on the spine. This patch has mostly been removed so that the spine lettering is now readable. Overall an acceptable copy of this classic and fragile book.

        On the Relation between the Specific Gravities of Bodies in their Gaseous State and the Weights of their Atoms" in Annals of Philosophy; or, Magazine of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Natural History, Agriculture and the Arts 6, July-December 1815, pp. 321-330 WITH "Correction of a Mistake in the Essay on the Relation between the Specific Gravities of Bodies in their Gaseous State and the Weights of their Atoms" in Annals of Philosophy; or, Magazine of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Natural History, Agriculture and the Arts 7, 1816, pp. 111-113, 1816

      TWO VOLUME FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST MODERN ATTEMPT TO CONSTRUCT A THEORY OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE. In the first of the two papers, "the English chemist William Prout observed that the atomic weights of the elements known at that time appeared to be whole multiples of the atomic weight of hydrogen, which has been since called the "whole number rule." This was the first rudimentary theory of the internal structure of an atom" (Wenner Collection). In the second paper, published the following year, Prout went further and proposed that the atoms of all other elements were composed of hydrogen atoms. These two assertions, the whole number rule and hydrogen as the universal atomic building block, became known as "Prout's hypothesis." Prout's whole number rule was finally proven correct more than a century later in 1919 by British physicist William Aston. In 1789, Antoine Lavoisier produced the first modern list of chemical elements, containing also the 23 elements then known. Lavoisier died in 1794 and in the years following his death, another 32 were added. "In 1815 Prout, using Avogadro's method of comparing the relative densities and weights of gases, proposed that all atoms appeared to have weights that were exact multiples of the weight of the lightest atom, hydrogen, and that the different atomic weights of elements are whole-number multiples of the atomic weight of hydrogen (Prout's hypothesis). "He took this as proof that all atoms were actually made from hydrogen atoms and the idea was adopted as atomic theory and used for later investigations of atomic weights and the classification of the elements. If all atoms are made from atoms of hydrogen, then it could be possible to transform an atom of one element into an atom of another. If atoms had been assembled from other things, then they could not themselves be the smallest things in creation" (Neilsen, Atomic Weight, A History of Science). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: C. Baldwin. 4to. Volume VI: [vii], 479 pages, [1], 4. 6 plates. Volume VII: [viii], 488 pages, [4]. 10 plates. Both volumes very handsomely rebound in three-quarter calf over marbled paper boards (purposefully rubbed a bit by the conservator for aging). Five raised bands at the spine; elaborate gilt-tooling in the compartments; gilt lettered at the spine. New endpapers. Bright and exceptionally clean throughout. Near fine condition.

Presumably written during his studies at Bonn, Freiburg, Würzburg, München, and Heidelberg, Goebbels's manuscript gives an outline of the history of the graphic arts, beginning with the second half of the nineteenth century, and ending in the early twentieth century ("der neue Stil ist der Expressionismus" [the new style is expressionism]). - Punched holes in the left margin (slightly touching text), in pencil.

      FIRST EDITION. First state text with the 2 missprints on page 13. These were corrected in later copies. 8vo. (9.2 x 6.1 inches). Sewn in original blue and white marbled paper wraps with the earliest issue title label, printed in red, to the front panel. One of fewer than 250 copies (probably circa 200) hand printed and bound by the Woolfs. The Hogarth Press accounts book shows that 180 copies were sold and twelve presentation or review copies were distributed within a year of publication. Both J. Howard Woolmer and Donald Gallup, in their respective bibliographies of Eliot and The Hogarth Press state that the earliest copies were bound up in paper wrappers of varying texture and design with a red lettered label, and that later copies were bound up in marbled paper wrappers, the majority with a label lettered in black. The fact that this copy has the earliest state, uncorrected text and the earliest state label throws some doubt on this assertion. The wrappers edges are a little chipped and show some minor fading, and there has been a neat, professional repair to a split in the fold of the wrapper but this is still overall a very good example of this fragile booklet. One of the rarest of Eliot's works, copies with the early state text and label seldom come onto the market, the addition of a family association attached to this copy, adding the strong possibilty of it being one of the 12 presentation copies, makes it rarer still.

        Zur Kritik der deutschen Intelligenz. Bern, Der Freie Verlag, 1919.

      1919. 8vo. 327 pp. Publisher's original printed wrappers. Inscribed by the author. First edition, inscribed to the managing director of the "Freier Verlag" (whose name has been effaced): "[Herrn Hans Huber] / In treuer Kameradschaft / Hugo Ball". Three years previously, the author had co-founded (with Hans Arp, Tristan Tzara, and Marcel Janco) the famous "Cabaret Voltaire" in Zurich, regarded as the cradle of Dadaism. In his present book he provides a historical analysis and critique of the "idea of the German state", which he held responsible for destroying "German thought". Prophetically, he writes: "It is my steadfast conviction that the destruction of the Prusso-German arbitrary power, as postulated by President Wilson in his famous address at Mount Vernon, will not be sufficient to protect the world from another German assassination [...]. It is of the utmost importance for the envisaged League of Nations to become fully aware of the historic strength of this foiled German plot, of the moral depletion of a people that has suffered for a thousand years under to most terrible theocracy [...]". The radical Ball, influenced by the great theorists of Anarchism, had spent most of the War years in exile in Switzerland, where he died in 1927, aged 41. Presentation copies of his books are rare.

        Some British Ballads

      , 1919 1919. ?Never did Old Poems Appear so Gayly Bedecked than Some British Ballads?"RACKHAM, Arthur. Some British Ballads. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co. Ltd, n.d. [1919]. Limited to 575 numbered and signed copies by the artist, this being copy no. 137. Quarto (10 7/16 x 8 5/8 inches; 265 x 218 mm.). Sixteen full color tipped-in plates with tissue guards lettered in red, twenty-four black and white drawings.

Corners very slightly bumped otherwise a near fine copy in a handsome binding."Several of the Ballads in this book are based on the great work of Francis James Child?" (Note)"Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures ... one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920).?Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings? It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book?Mr. Rackham?s paintings or the ballads themselves? (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).
