"Although Gibran's artistic output never matched his literary creativity in terms of popular appeal or professional influence, for him the canvas represented another form in which his poetry could be expressed. By the time of his death, his artworks numbered more than 2,000 in various mediums: oil, watercolour, pencil, and ink. Today, these works are widely scattered in public galleries and private collections in the United States; a small number are in Paris, and some 500 other are held by the Bisharri Museum in Lebanon" (Suheil Bushrui, Essays in Arabic Literary Biography 1850-1950, pp. 176-77).

        Einstein's Postcard to Heinrich Teweles

      Dated on December 23, [1919] - Signed, handwritten and typed postcard. With 3 lines postscript in Einstein's hand. The country on verso and the greeting line on recto in Ilse Einstein's hand. Written as a response to Teweles's article, appeared on 18 December 1919. It "was a humorous piece, describing the narrators nightmare of his unsuccessful struggles attempting to learn Einstein's theory in his Gymnasium physics class. Subsequently, he invited a young scholar of physics and astronomy to eat at his home and explain Einstein's work, and read various articles on the subject. Einstein may have found the article appealing since he himself had criticized the final examinations at the Gymnasium as causes of nightmares." (Kormos Buchwald et al.; 2004.) A postscript added in Einstein's hand: "Aber den Born haben Sie mit dem Drill verwechselt. Gut, dass es mein Freund Born nicht weiss, sonst kriegt er auch einen Angsttraum!" This refers to that part of Teweles's article where he describes Max Born as "a raging Kantian, a Kantian who is raging Einstein", who denied the possibility of a curved space. Heinrich Teweles (1856-1927) was a Bohemian-Austrian playwright, theatre critic and journalist, the former editor of the Prager Tageblatt. Ref.: No. 231 in: Kormos Buchwald, D.; Schulmann, R.; Illy J, J. Kennefick, D.; Sauer, T.: The collected papers of Albert Einstein. Volume 9, The Berlin years. Correspondence, January 1919 - April 1920. Princeton : Princeton University Press, 2004. pp. 323-324. Folded once. In fine condition. Signed, handwritten and typed postcard. With 3 lines postscript in Einstein's hand. The country on verso and the greeting line on recto in Ilse Einstein's hand. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Während eines Aufenthalts in Paris lernte sie den Münchner Arzt, Maler, Graphiker, Plakatkünstler und Bühnendekorateur Ludwig Kainer kennen, den sie wenig später heiratete. Das Ehepaar Kainer gehörte seit 1911 zum Bekanntenkreis von Arnold Schönberg, Franz Werfel, Herwarth Walden und Else Lasker-Schüler (Schneider-Kainer porträtierte diese auch um 1915 auf einem Gemälde). 1917 hatte sie ihre erste große Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Gurlitt in Berlin und wurde als Malerin und Illustratorin in der Metropole berühmt. 1919 -1922 entstanden lithographische Mappenwerke erotischen Inhalts mit Titeln wie "Zehn weibliche Akte" oder "Vor dem Spiegel", großes Aufsehen erregten die über 30 erotischen Illustrationen, die in einer Ausgabe von "Die Hetärengespräche des Lukian" erschienen. 1926 trennte sie sich von Kainer, verließ nach ihrer Scheidung Berlin und begleitete zwei Jahre den Dichter Bernhard Kellermann auf einer Asienreise. Während dieser Reise malte und zeichnete sie nicht nur, sondern nahm auch die Photos zu Kellermanns Reisebericht "Der Weg der Götter" (Berlin 1929) auf. 1933 emigrierte sie über Ibiza nach New York und lebte ab 1954 in Bolivien, wo sie ihrem Sohn beim Aufbau einer Stofffabrik half und 1971 starb.

        Le Bestiaire ou cortège d'Orphée

      Paris: Éditions de La Sirène,, 1919. Illustré par Raoul Dufy. Square octavo. Original yellow wrappers, black lettered spine and front cover. 30 full-page wood-engravings, head- and tailpiece by Raoul Dufy. Spine lightly sunned, chipped at head and tail. An exceptional copy. Second edition and the only realistically procurable edition of one of the great illustrated books of the 20th century, first issued in 1911. This is number 1,165 of 1,250 copies. "Apollinaire conceived of the idea of an illustrated bestiary in verse after seeing wood engravings of animals made by Picasso in 1906. He later turned to Dufy for depictions of Orpheus and his accompanying creatures. The combination of his witty and idiosyncratic poems and Dufy's thirty bold, large-scale designs makes this one of the most delightful of livres de peintres" (Ray). Apollinaire, seriously wounded in 1916, succumbed to the influenza pandemic in 1918. To this edition his collaborator Dufy contributes a brief prefatory note, commenting on the rarity of the first edition and mentioning "la mort soudaine" of the poet.Decidedly scarce: Copac records two copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Tate Britain, King's College London), OCLC adding two more in France (BnF, Mediatheque de Montpellier) and none elsewhere.

        British War Cabinet Document Receipt from the Villa Majestic, Paris, signed by Winston Churchill on 17 May 1919 during the Paris Peace Conference

      Paris, 1919. This intriguing piece of history is a document receipt signed by Winston Churchill on 17 May 1919 while attending the Paris Peace Conference.  The receipt measures roughly 5 x 4 inches, printed and stamped in purple ink on plain white stock, with autograph in both pencil and red.  The words ?"RECEIVED from ?-?" and ?"ADDRESSED to ?-?" as well as a line for ?"Signature?" are printed in purple and the upper right corner bears the oval stamp, also in purple, of the ?"BRITISH WAR CABINET * VILLA MAJESTIC, PARIS *?" date stamped ?"17 MAY 1919?".  In pencil below ?"RECEIVED from ?-?" is ?"B.E.D. Notice?" (?"B.E.D." being the abbreviation for "British Empire Delegation").  In pencil beside and below ?"ADDRESSED to ?-?" is ?"The Rt Hon Winston Churchill, M.P.?"  On the signature line, in red, Churchill signed ?"WS CHURCHILL?".  The receipt?'s upper blank verso retains a fragment of the document for which it was ostensibly the affixed receipt.  During the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, the British government delegation resided at the Hotel Majestic.  In May 1919 Churchill was serving as British Secretary of State for War and Air.  Only in his mid-40s and still two decades away from becoming Prime Minister, he was nonetheless already a polarizing national figure who had held several important Cabinet positions and been a political force since the turn of the century.  In the First World War, Churchill remarkably served both in the Cabinet and on the front, nearly losing his political life in the former and his corporeal life in the latter.  Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, but was scapegoated for the Dardanelles tragedy and the slaughter at Gallipoli and forced to resign.  He would spend part of his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches.  By the war's end, he was exonerated and rejoined the Government, initially as Minister of Munitions.  In January 1919, Churchill became Secretary of State for War and Air ?- the same month that the Paris Peace Conference convened.  On 17 May 1919, Churchill arrived in Paris at 2:00 am.  His meetings in Paris that day included Field Marshal Sir Henry Hughes Wilson (Chief of the Imperial General Staff), Lord Alfred Milner (Secretary of State for the Colonies), Edwin Samuel Montagu (Secretary of State for India), General Maharaja Sir Ganga Singh, and Edward George Villiers Stanley (Lord Derby, British Ambassador to France).  Issues commanding his attention ranged from occupation of Jellalabad, to who would be British Military Attache in Paris, to his exhaustive efforts to secure support for anti-Bolshevik factions in Russia.  Perhaps quintessentially Churchillian, Winston was described on 17 May 1919 by Sir Henry Wilson as being both ?"in good form?" and ?"very mulish.?"  (Diary of Sir Henry Wilson, Gilbert, CV IV, Part I, p.654)  Churchill expressed profound ?- and ultimately prophetic ?- reservations about harshly punitive terms in the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed on 28 June 1919, six weeks after Churchill signed this receipt.  On 7 July 1921, Churchill would tell the Imperial Conference in London: ?"The aim is to get an appeasement of the fearful hatreds and antagonisms which exist in Europe…?"  Advocating a policy of reconciliation, Churchill wanted Britain to be both ?"the ally of France and the friend of Germany?" to mitigate ?"the frightful rancour and fear and hatred?" between France and Germany which he warned ?"if left unchecked, will most certainly in a generation or so bring about a renewal of the struggle of which we have just witnessed the conclusion.?" Churchill?'s argument did not prevail.  The triumphant army of a bitterly resurgent Germany would set up its headquarters in the ex-Hotel Majestic after France?'s conquest in June 1940, a month after Churchill became wartime Prime Minister.  This item comes to us from the collection of British book collector and book seller David B. Mayou, known for his knowledge and collection of Churchill material.

        Big Little H.G. Wells. With an Introduction by G.K. Chesterton

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd, 1919. Not Published. Proof sheets, printed on rectos only. [4] ff., [17]-150 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Unbound sheets, loose in trial case binding of maroon cloth. Traces of dampstaining across top. Not Published. Proof sheets, printed on rectos only. [4] ff., [17]-150 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Not Published. The proof copy of Edwin Pugh's work on H.G. Wells, set up in preparation for publication by Thornton Butterworth, and not published after Wells took exception. The "introduction" by G.K. Chesterton is not present. The book describes in considerable detail Wells' early career, including his friendships with George Gissing, Stephen Crane, Jospeh Conrad, and others; and looks at much of Wells} early work. Portions were serialized in the weekly New Witness, July 4th to August 15th, 1919, accepted by Chesterton's sub-editor W.R. Titterton (to whom this volume is dedicated. Chesteron deflected Wells' wrath by suggesting that "sudden demands of other duties" had prevented him from "attending" to the journal, and by publishing Wells' response in the New Witness. Wells later wrote "From first to last [Chesterton] and I were very close friends and never for a moment did I consider him responsible for Pugh's pathetic and silly outburst." With two loosely inserted typed memoranda giving background on Pugh and the controversy. The first, dated 25 September 1923, and signed Joseph Anthony, notes that the book "gives a vivid and idyllic picture of Wells's early period ... he half loves well, half detests him"; the second, dated 3 October, concludes against publication. There is no indication of the American publishing house for which these memoranda were prepared. Pugh was a novelist and writer whose works included The Purple Head (1905) and The Dickens Originals (1912). A RARE AND FASCINATING SURVIVAL.

Paris: A La Belle Edition, 1919. |~||~||~||~| First Edition of one of the first written tributes to the genius of Picasso. Cocteau wrote the work in 1916 but was unable at the time to find a publisher. The clever typographical layout resulted in the accusation from John Richardson that the book is a "slick pastiche of Mallarme," but he does go on to say that Cocteau was the only writer to have understood the significance of Picasso's Seated Man. One of an edition of 339 copies, this being one of the 300 on Verge d'Arches. A remarkably scarce book.

        [Photograph Album, cover title]: Le Automobili Reali Fiat al servizio del Signor Presidente Wilson

      Roma: G. Felici. 1919. Oblong folio. Red morocco decorated and titled in gilt. Modest rubbing, mostly along the spine, else near fine. A wonderful collection of 29 large gelatin silver and gold-toned gelatin images, each measuring approximately 9" x 6.5", mounted on thick card, concerning Woodrow Wilson and his visit to Italy in 1919. Handwritten title page in ink, and three additional internal pages lettered in ink. Each image is neatly captioned in ink. Most of the images depict Wilson and other notables riding in Fiat touring cars, a few are of a small fleet of the cars unoccupied. Wilson spent six months, roughly the first half of 1919, in Europe for the Paris Peace Conference, becoming the first U.S. President to travel to Europe while in office, and the first to visit the Pope. The title page dates to Wilson's arrival in Rome on 3 January 1919. The first section depicts Wilson's triumphant arrival parading in Rome (nine images); the fleet of automobiles lined up outside a Fiat dealership or showroom in Rome (two images); Wilson's Tour of the Monuments of Rome in his Fiat Cars (12 images); and his arrival at the Vatican on January 4th (six images). Whether this album was prepared as a gift to Wilson, or perhaps issued in very small numbers for Fiat automobile officials we do not know, although we can find no other copies in OCLC or any other library catalog, including all of the major European databases. .

ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE RICH GREEN MOROCCO BY ROOT & SON (signed on rear turn-in), covers framed in gilt with triple rules, the inner rule entwined at corners with ivy leaf terminations, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments formed by double rule and featuring ivy leaf cornerpieces around an inner central panel, wide ruled turn-ins with foliate cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges rough trimmed. Original wrappers preserved. Decorative initials and title page, decorative borders throughout, and 27 COLOR PLATES BY DULAC (each laid down within a decorative frame, and with a captioned tissue guard). Printed in pale orange and black throughout. Front pastedown with bookplate of Joseph H. Haines. Hughey 35h. Upper corners slightly bumped, verso of free endpapers a little discolored (from glue?), otherwise A VERY FINE COPY. This is an attractively bound collection of tales from the "1,001 Nights," including the famous "Sinbad," charmingly illustrated by Dulac in the styles of Persian miniatures and Japanese prints. This edition contains four more plates than the English printing of the same work in 1914, and the text frames and other decorative elements are also unique to this French translation. Between 1907, when his "Arabian Nights" appeared, and 1920, Dulac's works found an appreciative audience. His illustrations have a sophisticated and exotic tone with rich color, reminiscent of the paintings of Gustav Klimt. The London bindery of William Root & Son consistently turned out excellent work, both on fine bindings as here and on trade bindings of multi-volume sets. This copy's prior owner, Joseph Howell Haines, was an avid book collector and friend of Philadelphia publisher George Lippincott.

      London, Anglo-American Oil Co., Ltd., 1919-1921.. 4to. A run, from vol. 1, no. 1, to vol. 3, no. 7. 31 original issues, each 16 pp. with numerous illustrations, occasional sketch maps and diagrams, and advertisements. Each issue near-fine in the original pictorial wrappers.. Published monthly by the Anglo-American Oil Co., Ltd., Queen Anne's Gate, London, S.W. for the information of Employees and Shareholders. Anglo-American Oil was an affiliate of Standard Oil, founded by John D. Rockefeller; in the 1930s it rebranded itself, and took as its name the phonetic abbreviation of its parent company, SO i.e. ESSO. The journal published news about the company's ships and their captains, both during the recent war and on normal service, portraits and information about director and managers, announcements of general meetings, in-house information relating to the establishment of new branches, contributions of the company to e.g. the war effort, articles on a range of subjects ('The Constitution of Petroleum', 'Production of Crude Oil in 1920', 'The Making of British Roads', etc.; John D. Rockefeller contributes a article in the second issue on 'Reconstruction in Industry'). Advertisements for Pratt's Perfection Spirit, a notable petrol of the day, feature prominently, but there are also advertisements for Brooklands, and similar interests. The front and rear cover to each issue reproduces a full-colour illustration of a prominent British building or landmark by Jessie Currie. The Anglo-American journal is rare, with few institutional holdings; copies in such well-preserved original condition are scarce.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1919. First edition. Very Good +. Folio, original white Japanese paper spine, gold Japanese paper boards, top edge gilt. Number 54 of 100 copies of the signed limited edition. The book is in Very Good + condition with the paper boards worn at the corners and edges and the gilt a bit rubbed on the vellum spine, but internally in excellent condition. Complete with the twenty drawings by the author, each with a separate tissue guard with the title printed on it. Gibran's second book printed in the US, after "The Madman" and right before "The Prophet." Signed copies of Gibran's work are becoming increasingly scarce. "Twenty Drawings" contains rare, figural drawings by Kahlil Gibran, a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. While appreciated artistically by a select few, this book remained in relative obscurity until Gibran's rise to fame for his masterpiece "The Prophet" (1923). "Twenty Drawings" exhibits Gibran's "graceful emotional exposition of form" (The Nation), and demonstrates the influence of studying with Auguste Rodin in Paris. Very Good +.

      [London: Printed for the Author at the Chiswick Press, December 1919]. - Small octavo. Sewn unlettered blue wrappers (not stapled, as the bibliographers assert). Two small pictorial vignettes. Wrappers neatly split along spine with careful restoration along the spine, mild soiling and a bit of small corner loss to the wrappers, a few smudges and bits of foxing, but a good copy. Half morocco slipcase. An association copy of the first order of the first edition of Graves's fourth book, printed in an edition of two hundred copies for private distribution. This copy is inscribed by Graves on the inside of the front wrapper: "Ivor Gurney from Robert Graves." Gurney (1890-1937), among the 16 Great War Poets honored in the Poets Corner of Westminister Abbey, is one of the most tragic. Both a talented composer and a poet, Gurney served with the Gloucestshire Regiment and was wounded in April 1917. He returned to the Front, and within the same span of time as his first collection, SEVERN AND SOMME, was accepted for publication, in September 1917 he was gassed and sent to hospital. He suffered a serious mental breakdown in 1918, the cause of which, though still controversial, has been occasionally labeled deferred shell-shock. He spent the last fifteen years of his life in psychiatric hospitals, but continue to write poetry until 1930, by which time his mental condition had sufficiently deteriorated to bring an end to his writing. Gurney likely met Graves on a November 1919 trip to Oxford at the invitation of John Masefield, and in the wake of that meeting, Gurney set six of Graves's poems to music -- at least four of the settings were published. Copies of this title almost inevitably bear presentations from Graves to friends, mentors or those from whom he wished to earn favor, so one certainly has a small but interesting world of association copies to choose from; nonetheless, this is one of the more evocative association copies of TREASURE BOX that have come our way.
