      [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.

        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 receiptÂ’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.” ChurchillÂ’s argument did not prevail.  The triumphant army of a bitterly resurgent Germany would set up its headquarters in the ex-Hotel Majestic after FranceÂ’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.

      , 1919 1919. JOHNSON, Severance. THE ENEMY WITHIN. Hitherto Unpublished Details of the Great Conspiracy to Corrupt and Destroy France. NY: The William A. McCann Company, 1919. 8vo., brown cloth stamped in gilt; 297 pages. First Edition. Signed presentation from Johnson on the verso of the frontispiece: "Jan. 17, 1920. To A. Mitchell Palmer, Attorney General of the United States. From the author, Severance Johnson." Johnson was a special investigator and correspondent at the Paris Peace Conference that ended World War I. Alexander Mitchell Palmer [1872-1936] was U.S. Attorney General under Woodrow Wilson from 1919 to 1921. Known as "The Fighting Quaker," Palmer is most famous for his controversial raids, also known as the "Palmer Raids," under the Espionage Act passed by Congress in 1917. Raids on suspected radical leftists under his administration created much controversy and on June 2, 1919 anarchists bombed Palmer's house in Washington, DC. He was also twice the intended victim of assassins. Palmer's raids, which were also suspected of using torture, rounded up as many as 10,000 radicals with many deported by ship to Russia. In 1920 the American Civil Liberties Union issued a report citing abuses under the raids and eventually they fell out of favor. A nice association copy from a very interesting and controversial period in U.S. history. Copies of "The Enemy Within" are scarce, perhaps bordering on rare- although there has been a recent reprint. With Johnson's personal Paris Conference News Service business card tipped to the front pastedown. Good condition (moderate wear with gilt on cover bright but dull on spine; lacks front endpaper). $750.00.

        Energie Nove, n. 7-8, I serie; nn. 1-12 II serie

      s.e. 1919-20, Torino - In 8, pp. 97-120; 261 + (2) di pubblicita'. Legatura in mz. tl. coeva. Seconda serie completa della primaÂrivista fondata da Piero Gobetti, progettata nel periodo delle vacanze estive fra la fine del liceo e l'inizio dell'universita', e pubblicata tra il 1918 e il 1920. In apertura si trova anche il numero 7-8 dell'1-28 febbraio 1919.ÂLa prima serie e' costituita da dieci fascicoli, numerati dall'uno al dieci (il primo datato 1-15 novembre 1918, l'ultimo 15-31 marzo 1919), la seconda, di dodici fascicoli, numerati dall'uno al dodiciÂva dalÂ5 maggio 1919 al 12 febbraio 1920). L'interruzione tra la prima e la seconda serie e' motivata dalla partecipazione di Gobetti al primo convegno dei gruppi d'azione degli Amici dell'Unita', svoltosi a Firenze dal 17 al 19 aprile 1919. Gobetti non fu soltanto il direttore della rivista ma anche - e fin da subito - il principale autore, firmando articoli di politica interna ed estera, di critica letteraria, note di costume e recensioni di libri. Dai numerosi articoli di fondo a sua firma e' possibile ricostruire il processo di maturazione sia del suo pensiero politico sia del suo stile di scrittura. Si affiancarono poi al fondatore firme conosciute come Balbino Giuliano, Angelo Tasca e Luigi Einaudi e giovani amici come Mario Attilio Levi, Giuseppe Manfredini e Ada Prospero, con il quale si fidanzo' in quel periodo e poi sposo' nel 1923.

        Essays on the surgery of the temporal bone

      London: Macmillan, 1919. Ballance, Charles Alfred (1856-1936) and Charles David Green. Essays on the surgery of the temporal bone. 2 vols. xxiv, 253, [1]; xiii, 255-612pp. 125 plates, many with separate keys. London: Macmillan, 1919. 297 x 222 mm. Original cloth, a little shaken, rear inner hinge of Vol. I partly split, cloth on front cover of Vol. II a bit bubbled. Light toning but a good copy. Ex-library, with library bookplates inside front covers, library labels on spines, embossed library stamps on several leaves, and card pockets, date due slips and bar code labels inside back covers. First Edition of this beautifully produced classic of neurosurgery and aural surgery, which contains ?much clinical wisdom and many magnificent illustrations? (Weir, p. 166). ?Ballance popularized the operation of radical mastoidectomy for advanced middle ear infection (1890), standardized an approach to drain or excise temporal brain abscesses, and was the first to clearly understand the neurological signs of cerebellar abscess (1894). Ballance also devised cranial base approaches to attack infectious thrombophlebitis of the lateral, petrosal, and cavernous sinuses. He was the first to completely remove an acoustic tumor (1894); 18 years later, the patient remained well. Ballance also drained a posterior fossa subdural hematoma (1906) and successfully sectioned the auditory nerve for Meniere?s syndrome (1908). . . . His two-volume set, Essays on the Surgery of the Temporal Bone (1919), remains a brilliantly written and illustrated classic. . . . Ballance was second only to Horsley in reputation as a pioneer British neurological surgeon. Described as a painstakingly slow but delicate and meticulous operator, Ballance made a contribution to neurosurgery and temporal bone surgery that was immense? (Stone). Garrison-Morton 4889.1.

        Sibirské Hloží Sbírka Satyrickch [Siberian Thistles -- A Collection of Satiric Cartoons]

      Irkutsku, 1919. Wraps. Good. Oblong, 23 by 25 cm. 12 leaves, including panorama plus wraps, with mostly color cartoons only on rectos. The Czech Legion was formed during the First World War by Czechoslavakian patriots hoping to gain independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire by fighting along with the Entente allies, including significantly, Russia. The Tsarist government was initially lukewarm in its handling of Czech warriors but after the Czech nationals proved themselves an effective fighting unit, Russia allowed for the formation of the Legion and permitted the Legion to recruit Czech and Slovak prisoners-of-war. (Remember that as part of the Austrian territory, Czech conscripts would have been part of the Austrian army which was fighting Russia.) Not long after, however, came the Bolshevik Revolution, and things became dicey for the Legion. The Bolsheviks first priority was suing for peace with Germany, which had in fact done what it could to stir up the Revolution, and the Central Powers, led by Germany, had a strong interest in shutting down the Czech Legion. The Czechs managed to defeat the German army though and negotiated passage through Siberia. This did not occur as planned, though, as mutual suspicions between the Czechs and the Bolsheviks grew. The upshot was that the Czech Legion not only remained intact, but it also made common cause with the White Russians fighting the Bolsheviks. With a force approximately 60,000 men strong, the Legion proved again a very potent fighting machine, winning many battles against the struggling Soviet forces, and by mid-1919 it actually controlled the entire Trans-Siberian Railroad line. But their fortunes turned during the Summer, as the Soviet troops gathered strength, both in numbers and fighting ability, and started to eat away at the territory a short time earlier controlled by the Whites. As the Legion had to give up one piece of the railroad line after another, its final efforts were dedicated to a complete evacuation in Vladivostok, which it achieved with many a cliffhanger. The returning Legionnaires would come to form the nucleus of the Czechoslavak army. In any case, these cartoons appeared at a time that the Legion was flush with success, and it obviously must have had control of a printing press in Irkutsk. The virulent anti-Sovietism may have been an outgrowth of its war against the Bolsheviks, but one can see that in many ways these cartoons anticipated much later ridicule and some of the fears expressed about the Soviets were indeed prophetic. Scarce. No copies located on OCLC FirstServe. Heavily toned, since printed on cheap newspaper stock, with considerable wear.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914?-1917. Octavo. Original midnight-blue combed cloth, title in silver to the spine and to the upper board together with a large block of Endurance stuck in the ice, publisher's device in blind to lower board. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Almost imperceptible mottling on the upper board, corners just bumped, but the silver blocking bright and unflaked, hinges completely sound, text browned as usual, but the internal binding entirely uncracked, typical short tear to the stub of the map, a very good copy indeed. First edition, first impression. An attractively, but sadly not solidly produced book, most often encountered in something less than collectable condition, this copy however is clean, tight and entirely sound, and highly desirable thus. It is bound in a previous;y unrecorded, more robust variant of the usual, fragile cloth, reminiscent of that used on the standard edition of the South Polar Times. "The failure of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to even reach the Antarctic continent, much less to cross it via the South Pole, has become the great polar success story of the twentieth century" (Books on Ice). Shackleton embarked in 1914 on the Endurance to make the first traverse of the Antarctic continent; a journey of some 1800 miles from sea to sea. But 1915 turned into an unusually icy year in Antarctica; after drifting trapped in the ice for nine months, the Endurance was crushed in the ice on October 27. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts. Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (DNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal, attributing their survival to Shackleton's exceptional leadership qualities. In recent years, this factor has led to the re-interpretation of the book in terms of a leadership and man-management manual, and several influential attempts have been made to distil from the narrative the underlying principles of Shackleton's command in order that they might be applied more widely. As Apsley Cherry-Garrard remarked in Worst Journey in the World; "For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen; and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time."

      David McKay, Publisher Philadelphia (1919) - First Edition. Octavo, original green cloth, gilt lettering at spine, gilt top page edge. From the introduction: "Whatever may be the verdict of history upon the grade of Mr. Wilson's statesmanship of this we may be sure even today he is a successful politician. He succeeds in performing at the same time the difficult exploit of keeping his ear to the ground. With a few notable exceptions he has spoken the convictions of that average man in whom Whitman saw the salvation of America and at last the world. In selecting these poems while I have sought always to emphasize those giving most vivid expression to the ideas with which the consciousness of the world today is burning I have tried to keep the organism of Leaves of Grass intact."
