        Vom Tigris zum Nordseestrand. Eine Bilderfolge zur Erinnerung an unsere Rückkehr aus der asiatischen Türkei. Mit einer Einführung von Otto Riederer (Major im Generalstab, kais. osm. Oberstleutnant a.D.). Eine Kartenbeilage * mit Originaldokument vom 24. Mai 1920 für Obermilitär-Intendantur Sekretär Knack

      Berlin, Kultur-Verlag, 1919 - Vollständige Ausgabe im Original-Verlagseinband (Festeinband / Pappband 8vo im Format 25 x 330 cm) mit bebildertem Deckeltitel (Zeichnung: O. Trillhose). 89 Seiten, mit sehr vielen Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier . - Aus dem Inhalt: Einführung-Vorwort - Vom Tigris zum Nordseestrand, Bilderfolge (zumeist 3-4 Abbildungen pro Seite). - Aus der Einführung: Im Herbst 1918 brach nach schweren Kämpfen mit weit überlegenem Feind der türkische Widerstand in Syrien zusammen. Die Engländer rückten auf aleppo vor und unterbrachen die Bagdadbahn. Die noch 1100 Mann starke "Deutsche Abteilung bei der VI. Osmanischen Armee" in Mesopotamien, mit dem ihr zugeteilten "Austro-ungarischen Autogruppenkommando Türkei 2" war damit von Konstantinopel abgeschnitten. Die Truppen mussten, um der Gefangennahme zu entgehen, auf dem Landmarsch quer durch Kleinasien, von Mossul, über Mardin - Diarbekir - Mesere - Malatia - Siwas, nach Samsun am Schwarzen Meer verwiesen werden. Am 29.10.2018 verließ die deutsche Abteilung Mossul; am Tag darauf rückten die Engländer dort ein. Zur Unterstützung wurde der deutschen Abteilung aus den von Syrien an die kilikischen Taurus zurückgesandten deutschen Truppen die "Siwas-Expedition" entgegengesandt. Unter Führung des bayerischen Hauptmanns d.L., Freiherr von Perfall, traf diese Hilfsexpedition mit den mit Betriebsstoffen, Bekleidung und Verpflegung beladenen Kraftwagen von Bosanti über Nigde-Kaisarije Anfang November 1918 Siwas ein. Gemeinsam setzen von da an die deutsche Abteilung und die Siwas-Expedition ihren schweren Marsch über Tokat - Amasia nach Samsung fort. Zwei Monate nach dem Abmarsch von Mossul, am 1.1.1919, erreichte die letzte Karawane der deutschen Abteilung Samsun. Nahezu 1400 km haben die braven Truppen zurückgelegt, durch Steppen ohne Wege und über Straßen und Brücken, die diesen Namen kaum verdienten. Durch die Gluthitze Mesopotamiens, durch die Wildnis Kurdistans, durch Schnee und Eis der armenischen Berge, durch feindliche Stämme und gut bewaffnete Räuberbanden hatten sie sich an das Schwarze Meer durchgekämpft. Am 12.1.1919 verließen sie mit dem Handelsdampfer "Kerkyra" der Deutschen Levante-Linie Samsun, am 14. Januar trafen sie auf der Reede von Haidar Pascha (Konstantinopel) ein. Am 27.2. lichtete "Kerkyra" erneut die Anker. Durch das Mittelmeer, die Meerenge von Gibraltar, den Golf von Biskaya und den minenverseuchten Kanal führte Kapitän Barber die ihm anvertrauten Formationen sicher in die Heimat zurück. Am 23.3.1919 traf "Kerkyra" vor Wilhelmshaven ein. Was die Truppen in Mesopotamien gesehen, was sie auf ihrem abenteuerlichen und mühseligen Marsch durch Kleinasien und auf langer Seefahrt erlebt und erlitten, ist in den folgenden Bildern festgehalten." - Illustrierte Bücher, deutsche Truppen in Kleinasien im Ersten Weltkrieg, Rückmarsch aus der Türkei in die Heimat, Deutsche Abteilung bei der VI. Osmanischen Armee in Mesopotamien, Austro-ungarisches Autogruppenkommando Türkei 2, Kriegsgeschichte, Kriegserlebnisse, Kampf der Mittelmächte in Kleinasien 1918, Landser am Feind. - Beiliegend Originaldokument vom 24. Mai 1920, amtliche Abschrift / Zeugnis mit Dienststempel: "Obermilitär-Intendantur Sekretär Knack hat vom 26.5.2018 bis 25.3.1919 die Geschäfte des Intendanten der Deutschen Abteilung bei der 6. osmanischen Armee selbständig geleitet . . .", verfasst von: Chef der ehem.

        Injun and Whitey

      New York: The Britton Publishing Co, 1919. First Edition. Near fine/very good. 1st edition of the first novel by Hollywood's first Western movie star. Our Britton Co. edition precedes both the Haughton-Mifflin edition (1920) and the one by Grosset & Dunlap. Near fine in a very good dustjacket, nice looking, and plenty scarce. The jacket is probably in its only state, with no other state of it recorded, despite there being a front flap ad implying either simultaneous or pending publication of the sequel, Injun and Whitey Strike Out for Themselves, which the short-lived Britton Co. had the rights to publish, and planned to publish, but I've never seen a copy with Britton's imprint and I doubt they ever did produce it (Haughton-Mifflin published it in 1921). That's my theory, and when a theory fits all the known facts it has merit, but all reasonable conjectures must be tested before they can be be accepted as true, or in this case, confirmed by evidence to be accepted as a fact, and I have not found proof, nor have I found a credible way to go after proof that would require less than $800 of my time. If I am wrong, there will be an anodyne Biblioctopus "product recall." If I am right, $800 is a bargain. In the very earliest days of American cinema there were Westerns, and they evolved to where there were many magnificent films, and we all know which ones they were, from Tumbleweeds (1925) to Rango (2011). Then there were the others, celluloid monuments to public patience. It isn't like if you've seen one you've seen them all, it's more like if you've seen them all, you feel like you've seen one. In the ongoing effort to build a library, you are going to want friends, because friends will make the process less subjective. And you are going to want quality, because quality will make you happy, so here's the 5th rule of book collecting. Judge the friends you would make with a genial and patient sympathy, and judge the books you would buy with a godlike and superior impartiality (Book Code).

        La Guirlande d'art et de la litterature.

      Paris Francois Bernouard -20 1919 - First edition. Royal 8vo. 11 issues (all published), 57 full-page hors text colour pochoir lithographs by Jean Saudé, colour illustrations in the text. Original titled and illustrated wrappers. A rare complete set of this monthly periodical, significant both for its text and its Art Deco imagery. George Barbier (1882 – 1932), was the supreme decorative designer of the Art Deco movement, whose work centred on the human figure, displayed in a thousand different settings and costumes. He had the faculty, as Valéry wrote, of embodying myth through images in such a way that workers in mere words could only look on in awe. His drawings were rendered into print by Jean Saudé, the leading exponent of pochoir, whose prints have a vibrancy of colour that has rarely been matched. Colas 1362; Hiler 403.

        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. With the original glassine wrapper. 30 full-page wood-engravings, head- and tailpiece by Raoul Dufy. Ownership inscription (on front free endpaper) of Churchill Lathrop (1901-1996), art historian ("Paris, August, 1937"); neat bookplate of John Lewis (1912-1996), printer and notable collector of printed ephemera. A few nicks to glassine wrapper, a touch of foxing. An excellent copy. Second edition and the only realistically procurable edition of one of the great illustrated books of the 20th century, first issued in 1911 in a tiny print run of 122 copies. This is number 1,057 of 1,250 copies, decidedly scarce: Copac records only two copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Tate Britain, King's College London), OCLC adding only two more (BnF, Mediatheque de Montpellier). "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, touching, prefatory note, commenting on the rarity of the first edition and mentioning "la mort soudaine" of the poet.

        Scrapbook DOCUMENTING a STATESIDE WORLD WAR I OFFICER'S TRAINING & SERVICE]

      Camp Meade, Maryland; Camp lee, Virginia; Camp Sheridan, Alabama; Taylor Field; Alabama 1919 - 78 disbound black album leaves. Over 200 photographs and ephemeral pieces: forms, certificates, letters, notes, invitations, notices, memorandums, ms annotations &c.&c. 13" x 9-3/4" This scrapbook documents Lieutenant Alexander M. Falkenstein's WW1 service from his initial attempt to enlist as an aviator in 1917 until his release from active duty in 1919. Falkenstein appeared to has strong designs to be an aviator, but was denied upon his initial application and was appointed as a Sergeant in the 316th Infantry Regiment, 79th Division, at Camp Meade Maryland where he applied for a commission in the Army Signal Corps' Aviation Section, unfortunately he was sent to Officer's Training School instead in 1918. After graduation he was reassigned to the 45th Infantry Regiment at Camp Sheridan, Alabama, where he was finally permitted to begin training as an aerial Infantry Observer, it was unfortunately short lived, the program being canceled with the Armistice, and Falkenstein accepted reassignment in the division's military police until he was discharged in April of 1919. The scrapbook tells an intimate tale of his experiences during this time with a wide assortment of carefully collected ephemeral material. Some chipping to album leaves, minor age toning to cloth, otherwise a VG album, except for a few places wear photos might have fallen out, it appears complete.

        AUTOCRACY AND WAR [inscribed by Conrad]

      , 1919 1919. [1 of 25, this copy inscribed] London: Printed for Private Circulation (by Thomas J. Wise), 1919. Original light grey wrappers. First Edition, being one of only 25 copies (so stated; this copy is un-numbered, as it was for presentation -- see below). This was the first of Thomas J. Wise's twenty very-limited-issue Conrad pamphlets produced during the twelve months between February 1919 and January 1920; this title is long enough (66 pages) that the wrapper is glued on, rather than being stitched together with the leaves. (As spelled out by Cagle (pp 251-256), Conrad was very much involved in these items -- wanting a share of the considerable cash collectors would pay for them, but also wanting to distance himself from the implied mercantilism that angered his less-affluent fans.) AUTOCRACY AND WAR had appeared in the July 1905 issue of Fortnightly Review, and would later be collected in NOTES ON LIFE & LETTERS.~This is a fine copy (small glue-stains from the binding process near the gutter of some leaves, as we have seen on other copies). Cagle A25. Housed in an attractive morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~This is an inscribed presentation copy by Conrad: on the front wrapper appears, in his hand, "J.B.P. affectionately from J.C. 1919." The recipient was Conrad's literary agent J.B. Pinker -- not just his literary agent, but his close friend as well. Pinker was especially important to Conrad during "the lean years," the half-dozen years before the great success of CHANCE in 1914; during these years Pinker not only managed Conrad's literary efforts, he also managed, in large part, the Conrads' finances (such that, it is said, Conrad would ask Pinker if it was OK to buy his wife a new coat).

        Winesburg, Ohio

      New York: Huebsch 1919 - Original yellow cloth, printed paper spine label (spine darkened with label worn), obscured inscription on front pastedown, rare dust jacket (small chip from front panel, spine darkened with a little wear at ends). Cloth case. A rare survival. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, with top edge stained yellow, with “lay” in p. 86, line 5 and “the” on p. 251, line 3 in broken type. An outstanding presentation copy inscribed by Anderson on the front free endpaper: “To Henry J. Smith, with regards, Sherwood Anderson.” Henry Justin Smith, a Chicago-based journalist and author, was an early friend and supporter of Anderson. Smith also helped the careers of Carl Sandburg, Ben Hecht, Harry Hansen, as well as other mid-Western authors. Anderson wrote in his posthumously published memoirs that Winesburg, Ohio “has become a kind of American classic and has been said by many critics to have started a kind of revolution in American short-story writing.” H. L. Mencken observed, “Nothing quite like it has ever been done in America. It is so vivid, so full of insight, so shiningly life-like and glowing, that the book is lifted into a category all its own.” Presentation copies of the first issue of Winesburg, Ohio in dust jacket are rare. No other examples appear in the auction records of the past fifty years. Provenance: Donald Drapkin, his sale, Christie’s, 29 June 2005, lot 7. Sheehy & Lohf 9.

        Injun and Whitey

      New York: The Britton Publishing Co. 1919. 1st edition of the first novel by Hollywood's first Western movie star. Our Britton Co. edition precedes both the Haughton-Mifflin edition (1920) and the one by Grosset & Dunlap. Near fine in a very good dustjacket, nice looking, and plenty scarce. The jacket is probably in its only state, with no other state of it recorded, despite there being a front flap ad implying either simultaneous or pending publication of the sequel, Injun and Whitey Strike Out for Themselves, which the short-lived Britton Co. had the rights to publish, and planned to publish, but I've never seen a copy with Britton's imprint and I doubt they ever did produce it (Haughton-Mifflin published it in 1921). That's my theory, and when a theory fits all the known facts it has merit, but all reasonable conjectures must be tested before they can be be accepted as true, or in this case, confirmed by evidence to be accepted as a fact, and I have not found proof, nor have I found a credible way to go after proof that would require less than $800 of my time. If I am wrong, there will be an anodyne Biblioctopus "product recall." If I am right, $800 is a bargain. In the very earliest days of American cinema there were Westerns, and they evolved to where there were many magnificent films, and we all know which ones they were, from Tumbleweeds (1925) to Rango (2011). Then there were the others, celluloid monuments to public patience. It isn't like if you've seen one you've seen them all, it's more like if you've seen them all, you feel like you've seen one. In the ongoing effort to build a library, you are going to want friends, because friends will make the process less subjective. And you are going to want quality, because quality will make you happy, so here's the 5th rule of book collecting. Judge the friends you would make with a genial and patient sympathy, and judge the books you would buy with a godlike and superior impartiality (Book Code). Near fine / very good.

        Conditions de Paix / Conditions of Peace [version préliminaire du 7 mai 1919 du "Traité de Versailles"]

      1919 - Broché. 34x23 cm. XV pages de Sommaire/ Summary et 415 pages de texte. Avec 4 grandes cartes dépliantes. Texte bilingue : français/anglais. Ce document est la version originale présentée et remise le 7 mai 1919 à Versailles à la délégation allemande conduite par le Comte Ulrich von Brockdorff-Rantzau. Elle fut donc modifiée ultérieurement et les modifications sont apportées à la main ou sur feuilles dactylographiées à notre document (Le traité final fut signé le 28 juin 1919). Cette version est donc historiquement très intéressante et indique que peu de modifications y ont été apportées malgré la désapprobation générale de la délégation allemande. Les études historiques ont depuis suffisamment démontrés que le contenu de ce traité a été un des ferments de la seconde guerre mondiale . ASSEZ BON ETAT. Derniers cahiers non coupés en tête. Nom et date au stylo sur la première page de garde. Certains paragraphes biffés au crayon et accompagnés d'encarts tapuscrits (et un manuscrit) contenant les corrections en français. Quelques corrections manuscrites au crayon et à l'encre. Couverture salie, écornée. Dos insolé, avec quelques auréoles, petite déchirure en tête du dos au niveau du dernier plat de la couverture. Plis angulaires, légères salissures et petites déchirures marginales sur quelques pages. Première et dernière pages de garde brunies. Légère ondulation sur dernières feuilles, petite déchirure en tête de la dernière page. Bords de certains encarts usés. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
