      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."

        Songs of Democracy

      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." Very scarce in original dustjacket. Near Fine bright copy in Very Good dustjacket, chipped at top spine area, some soiling to white panels, few closed tears. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Stabilimento tipo-litografico militare, Bologna. 1919 - Ottimi esemplari con dedica (fatata e firmata) dell’autore ad entrambe i volumi. Quello del rifacimento degli argini era un compito vasto e complesso perché implicava altre attività inevitabilmente connesse: sgombero e risanamento dei campi di battaglia, sistemazione dei ponti e delle strade, ripristino dei fabbricati di carattere pubblico (municipi, chiese), costruzione e messa in opera di baracche per servizi pubblici, riattivazione di opifici ed officine, di fornaci e segherie, di magazzini idraulici per il rifornimento di acqua potabile. Tutte le opere sono largamente rappresentate nel ricco apparato iconografico e compaiono sul teatro dei lavori i superiori, che sia il generale Traniello capo del 3° Ufficio Lavori, o il Presidente del Magistrato alle Acque una cui visita sul Piave, nel marzo ‘19, viene testimoniata da un paio di immagini. Il secondo volume tratta del Triveneto e spesso sono ritratti paesi e valli raramente rappresentate (p.es. Val Cortella e Val Cismon, ecc.). Ottima qualità tipografica con ricchezza carte ripiegate ed eccellente conservazione. Rara da trovarsi completa dei due volumi. Formato: 2 v. (157 p., [10] c. di tav. ripieg., [74] c. di tav.; 395 p., [14] c. di tav. ripieg.), 32 cm, tela. Ottimo.

[Doubleday] argued that it must be complete 'W.D.T.', [Kipling] said what do you mean by W.D.T. to which [Doubleday] replied 'The Whole Damn Thing'. The edition was always called after that The W.D.T." (Richards). This London edition followed the American by one month but includes an extra poem: "Mowgli's Song".

        CHEWG-UM-BLEWG-UM

      - GAZE,HAROLD. THE CHEWG-UM-BLEWG-UM. Melbourne, Aukland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington and London: Whitcombe & Tombs Limited, [1919]. 4to (7 3/4 x 10"), [30]p., wraps, color plate on cover, string tie, faint corner stain on cover else near Fine. Illustrated by Gaze with 2 tipped-in color plates (plus color plate on cover repeated in-text), 1 tipped-in black and white plate and 8 pen and ink drawings in-text all featuring a koala, a fairy and a strange animal with the body of an emu and a camel's head. The story is told in verse. This is one of 3 titles in the Mite Merry Series. Gaze was born in New Zealand and except for a short stint at art school in London, he was largely self-taught. He eventually moved to Pasadena where he did some work for the Disney Studio. Although he didn't illustrate a large number of books his work is distinctive and wonderful. Holden in Golden Age p. 80 notes about the books in this series that "by Australian standards these titles were milestones in the history of children's book production. Their large quarto format and pleasing typography and layout were indicative of the publisher's understandable enthusiasm and belief that a major new talent had arrived." Marcie Muir notes that "After Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, the artist who dominated the fairy genre in Australian children's books was Harold Gaze " (Hist. Aust. Child. Bks. p77). See Muir Bib. 2699 This is a great copy of a rare book. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      [N.p.] Privately printed,, [1919]. Tall quarto. Original blue cloth, titles to front board gilt, edges uncut. Frontispiece with vignettes in the text by Frank E. Horn. Tips slightly bumped and extremities a little rubbed. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. The authors served in the 79th Division during the First World War (a unit of the US Army, created in 1917). After combat in France during the First World War, it earned the nickname "Cross of Lorraine", and for several months in 1919 the authors co-edited a troop newspaper called The Lorraine Cross. Laid-in is a typed letter signed from Cain to a fellow American, who had served in the Red Cross in France in 1919; it is dated 18 April 1976. Cain mentions The Lorraine Cross and the 79th Division, and he concludes: "I don't drive a car any more, it being unanimously agreed I could not only break my own neck but perhaps 25 others, on account of a tricky heart, but if you do, we can go to lunch and reminisce." This book precedes what is generally regarded as Cain's first book, Our Government, by 11 years. Scarce.

        1919 China Photo Album - HONG KONG - RACE TRACK - Wharf Market - Customs and WWI Celebrations

      Hong Kong 1919 - China Photograph Album - Hong Kong Wharf Market and Race Track - Custom and Celebration - also Capturing an Historic Moment - End of World War I in 1919. Hong Kong, 1919. Album of 75 original photographs immediately following the First World War, taken by an officer of the British Armed Forces in Hong Kong. Photographs vary in size, the smallest being 1.75 x 2.5 cm, and the largest being 4.25 x 6 inches. Oblong octavo album, brown cloth boards, 6.5 x 10 inches, vivid blue cardstock leaves. Exterior wear and minor aging, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a pleasing album of unusual scenes. Chinese custom is captured in photographs of a wharf market, women feeding their infants, a small sampan or canopied boat, civilians resuming their normal routine, and many celebrating peace. Officers of the regiment are seen in a parade, at a funeral, and enjoying the Chinese horse racing tradition at a large race track, and finally enjoying some leisure time. One of the barracks consists of straw thatched huts. Photographs of the city's post war celebrations serve to date the album. In particular, a banner reads "28th June 1919" in recognition of the Treaty of Versailles is mounted on a colonial building which also bears the insignia of the League of Nations, having just been founded at the Paris Peace Conference. Compiled by an officer of the Royal Scots Infantry Regiment, stationed in Hong Kong, this album contains some unique scenes, beginning with a view of Queen Street where flags of America, Japan, France, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and others, celebrate collaboration, and the phrase "VICTORY AND PEACE" flank the adjacent hillside for all to see.

        Rhythmen

      Friedrich Dehne Verlag 1919 - Grafikmappe "Rhythmen" mit 10 (von 10) jeweils hansignierte Lithographien, in grauer dekorierter Faltmappe (47,5 x 39 cm), Friedrich Dehne Verlag, Leipzig 1919. Mappe beidseitig etwas fleckig, Blätter durchweg sauber und von guter Erhaltung. zum Werk Mit seinem zweiten Mappenwerk "Rhythmen" greift Ludwig von Hofmann erneut das bereits für die vierzehn Jahre zuvor erschienene Mappe "Tänze" maßgebliche Thema des bewegten Körpers auf, um es durch die inzwischen entwickelten künstlerischen Mittel zu vertiefen. Auf den zehn Blättern entfaltet Hofmann figurative Gefüge, die in ihren übergreifenden Strukturen den einzelnen Körper übersteigen, durch den sie zugleich getragen werden. Vor dem Hintergrund der Eurhythmie fungiert der Körper hier nicht als Mittel eines subjektiven Ausdruckstanzes, sondern tritt - dem namensgebenden Titel der Mappe entsprechend - als Medium einer übergeordneten, daseinsbestimmenden Rhythmik in Erscheinung, wodurch dem bewegten menschlichen Körper eine symbolische, auf den geheimnisvollen Sinn des Daseins bezogene Dimension verleihen wird. Daher ist der menschliche Körper bei Hofmann auch nicht - wie dies für den Expressionismus charakteristisch ist - dezentriert oder in Fragmente aufgelöst, sondern er bleibt - der Kunst Hans von Marées' vergleichbar - intakt und wird aufgrund eines neuen metaphysischen Menschenverständnisses gerade in seiner Anthropomorphizität aktiviert. Dies macht den inmitten des Stromes der Moderne als Einzelgänger agierenden Hofmann zu einem klassischen Künstler. "Das Expressive hat mich interessiert, nicht das Expressionistische. Ich fühle mich der Natur gegenüber demütig, will sie nicht vergewaltigen". Ludwig von Hofmann
