E. Lawrence himself (though unattributed), and numerous coloured maps showing the progress of the campaign in sequence. The printed preface states that this document was created so that "members of the Force may be able to take home with them an acceptable account of the great advance in which they have played a part"; this is the true first edition of one of the earliest accounts of that campaign, its details being still "fresh in the memory", and constitutes, along with the reports in the Arab Bulletin and in the Times, Lawrence's first published accounts of the Arab campaign.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Starnberg, 3. X. 1919.. 2 SS. 4to.. An seinen Freund Theodor Kuh: "[...] Ich habe mich riesig über Dein Lebenszeichen gefreut. Gleichzeitig geht ein Pack Fotos an Dich ab. Darunter solche unserer Villa. Uns geht es allen glänzend. Ich schreibe mit allen vieren unaufführbare Filme, was sehr einträglich ist und nicht minder komisch, und dichte heimlich, bis das Papier, das der Teufel extra meinethalber abschaffen möchte, wieder billiger wird. Der Ochs merkt nämlich immer noch nicht, daß ich gescheiter bin als er. Auch das Entwerten des Goldes wird ihm nicht viel helfen, denn dann kann ich längst Gold machen. Ich rate Dir folgendes: such Dir mit feinem Instinkt selbst eine Wortübung aus den Psalmen aus - diese haben große verwandelnde Kraft; oder vielleicht einen Satz aus dem 'Vater unser'. Zu erwägen wäre, ob man den Psalm nicht hebräisch üben sollte. Die Wortübung höchstens 1 x im Tag und nicht zu lange (10-30 Minuten) doch desto conzentrierter, aber ja nicht krampfhaft. Die einzelnen Worte quasi aussaugen wie die Biene die Blüte. [...] brauchts nicht; sie dienen hauptsächlich, um das erforderliche richtige frische Wachsein beim Wortüben aufrecht zu erhalten. Ferner: Kauf Dir: Bo-Yin-Ra: 'Das Buch vom lebendigen Gott' [...] Ferner: zu genauestem Studium: Mary Baker Eddy's Wissenschaft und Gesundheit (Christian Science) zu beziehen durch David Salomon, Berlin Halensees [...] Ich weiss, warum ich gerade Dir die Christian Science als quasi nochmaliges Fundament empfehle. Ich rate Dir, setze Dich mit meinem alten Freund Posch, Fremdenführer beim Portier im Blauen Stern in Verbindung und lass Dir, als ob Du gänzlicher Laie wärst, von ihm über Christian Science erzählen etc. Stör Dich nicht an seinem eselhaften Getue; er hat trotzdem die Sache simpel und gradlinig genau erfasst. Lernen: wenn Du Dich vor physischen Misslichkeiten bewahren willst, so halte Dich von Sexuellem möglichst fern, auch in Gedanken. Auf dieses höchst einfache Geheimnis kommt man leider immer recht spät. Und doch stehts im Paulus klar darin. Ich wittere, es kommen höchst bedeutsame Zeiten. Manchmal scheint mir, wir kämen nach Osten (Sibirien) um ein ganz neues Zukunftsleben einzu-fädeln. Ich glaube weiter fest: die Stunde kommt mit Riesenschritten, wo die Prager sagen werden über mich: schade, den hätten wir doch fast gekreuzigt. Ich habe aber zum Glück kein Talent zum Märtyrer. Hier geht es passabel aufwärts. Deutschland scheint sich von der überstandenen Nibelungentreue allmälig zu erholen. Aber, ich glaube, der alten Zopf wird nirgends mehr geflochten werden [...]" - Briefe Meyrinks mit okkultem Inhalt sind sehr selten.

        Coppertop: The Queer Adventures of a Quaint Child

      Melbourne Publishing Company, Melbourne 1919 - Octavo, colour frontispiece and six colour plates; front endpaper damaged by removal of early owner's inscription, slight spotting, but a very good copy in the original boards with oval colour portrait onlay; the unusual dustjacket (cut to show the portrait on the front board) with some foxing, but in good condition. With the unusual dustjacket. First edition, with beautiful colour plates by the author. Gaze was one of the most prolific authors of books for children in this period, and this fantasy about the adventures of a small girl in a world where she meets people such as the Clerk of the Weather and the South Wind is one of his most popular works. Coppertop, and its sequel Coppertop Cruises (1920), were marvellous vehicles for Gaze's fine, opalescent-hued watercolours. The plates in these, and his other Australian-published works, 'established him as the most original illustrator of children's books after Ida Rentoul Outhwaite' (Holden, A Golden Age: Visions of Fantasy, p. 82).

        The Book of Folly A Volume of Original Caricatures in Pen-and-Ink from the Library of Viscount Long

      England. Full Morocco. Good. Oblong, 15 by 23 cm. Unpaginated, with 42 pages containing ink illustrations and/or verse, most of which are outlandish and nonsense often in the spirit of Edward Lear. The album had a few contributors, each of whom initialed his contribution. One poem is signed William Colquhoun. Otherwise, the contributions are initialed and their precise identities are unknown. It is probable that a number of the limericks and/or ink illustrations were done by children of the Walter Long, created the First Viscount Long, and their friends. The book carries the bookplate of Long on its FEP, and many of the items are initialed with an L. Long, known as a Irish Unionist, was a leading politician during World War One and the period directly prior and after, serving as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1919 to 1921. The level of artistic proficiency is various, the very best of the artwork has the unforced fluency of a cartoon by a Rococo master, when it is elaborate, or sure-handed and crisp, when a more minimalist sketchy line drawing. And at the lower end, even the most unskilled illustrations do not fail to amuse. (Nowadays, when no longer is artistic self-expression widely cultivated, it is inconceivable that such an album could be created.) The verse has a similar range but also should never fail to bring at least a smile of appreciation. Subject-wise, there is a generous dose of mayhem, cruelty, slapstick, and freakish traits and perverse tics -- after all, limericks predominate! There is one narrative set of five limericks about a dog who drank tea; otherwise, the works are all free-standing. There are burlesques of cats, horses, bald ladies, the fat, the skinny -- but telling you that this poem is about the "Soldier from Naples" or that one, "the old man on the moon", really doesn't relate much about their humor and warpness. Most of the entries are directly into the album, with a handful of illustrations pasted instead. Surface chips, scuffs and heavy wear to the red morocco, with repairs to the spine extremities. Toning and some light soiling to the leaves. One closed tear repaired.

      Cambridge: Privately Printed for the Author by J.B. Peace at the University Press, Cambridge, 1919 Unpaginated. Privately Printed for the Author by J.B. Peace at the University Press, Cambridge, and limited to 200 copies. Text is clean and unmarked except for a small patch of light brown off setting at poem 17, that appears to be from a newspaper clipping or bookmark. Previous owner has laid in a small print of Sassoon on the first blank page, and has a brief pencil note below it. Covers with light soiling and the paper title label is intact. The bookplate of W.A. Harding - Madingley, is on the front paste down endpaper. Harding (1870-1942) inherited Madingley Hall from his father in 1924, and the property was eventually sold to Cambridge University in 1948. Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967) is best remembered for his angry and compassionate poems of the First World War, which brought him public and critical acclaim. Avoiding the sentimentality and patriotism of many other war poets, Sassoon wrote of the horror and brutality of trench warfare and contemptuously satirized generals, politicians, and churchmen for their incompetence and blind support of the war. Much of his earlier work (1906-15) was privately printed and availability remains limited. This work predates the 1920 U.S. Dutton publication and has seven fewer poems.. Limited Edition - 200 Copies. 8vo. Vg+/No Jacket. Hard Cover.

Early edition of this beautifully illustrated trade catalogue, which was premiered by the famed California Perfume Company -- predecessor to Avon -- at the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. These large colour plate catalogues for their salesmen met with huge success, even though they were very expensive. The gorgeous plates illustrated beautiful art nouveau inspired bottles, packages, and advertising for perfumes, soaps, shampoos, cold creams, talcum powders, tooth paste, gift sets, and more. For the first few years, they were released with the screw-back post binders, allowing product pages to be removed, or added if needed, so the salesmen did not have to buy another catalogue just to replace a few products. Originally released with 40 colour plates in 1915/1916, the plates only illustrated the separate products, and the price lists were provided in California Perfume Company small supplement catalogues. However, by 1919, the smaller catalogues had been discontinued, and salesmen with these large colour plate catalogues inserted in-between leaves with product information. From 1920 to 1923, the number of colour plates was reduced to 36, with the explanatory leaves providing continuous pagination, however, the screw-back binders were eliminated, so that salesmen were required to buy new catalogues. . Colour-illustrated lithograph title, 20 colour plates [printed both sides], with linen numbered thumb tabs at fore-edges as issued. With 3 additional plates from the earlier 1915 CPC catalogue bound-in, along with folding brochure for American Ideal Gift assortment.

      (Berlin, Verlag Fritz Gurlitt 1919).. Je ca. 50 x 64,5 cm (Blattgröße - Bildgröße wenig kleiner). Jeweils unten rechts signiert.. Aus einem von 20 von der Künstlerin kolorierten Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe auf Bütten (gesamt 60). 16. Werk der Gurlitt Presse.

Entgegen den Angaben bei Dahmen unsere Blätter nicht bezeichnet. Lene Schneider-Kainer wurde als Kind jüdischer Eltern in Wien geboren. 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.

In the final section, Goddard suggested using a small portion of flash powder in a rocket directed at the moon in an attempt to visually verify a successful impact. Despite the scientific nature of the bulk of the monograph, this brief proposal captured the attention of the press, which derided Goddard's work with great skepticism and provided little comfort to the reserved Goddard." Ciancone notes but we have been unable to verify that this work was actually published in 1920 'despite stated publication date of 1919.'Ciancone in his Literary Legacy of the Space Race (#84).
