      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914–1917. Octavo. Original midnight-blue 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, traces of blue top-stain still visible. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Head and tail of the spine slightly crumpled, spine lettering a touch flaked, small patch of bubbling of the cloth on the lower board, contemporary gift inscription to the front free endpaper, evenly browned as usual, short tear into the stub of the map as often, but a far better copy than is usually encountered, the cloth bright, hinges and text-block remaining tight, a highly desirable copy. First edition, first impression. "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.

Generally a very good copy but one of the plates has pink paint to the top margin that just encrouches onto the edge of the image, some of the pink has transfered to the top of the text page opposite. There are three other paint marks on text pages, one is just a couple of small light blue brush marks over opposite pages, another is bigger blue brush marks over opposite pages and the third is a couple of small yellow and pink brush strokes to the margin of another pair of leaves. (Please ask for photographs of the affected areas). Aside from these four areas with paint marks the pages are in slightly better condition than usually found with this edition. This first impression was printed on poor quality paper and is prone to browning but, on the whole, this copy is in better condition than usually encountered although the page edges do inevitably still show some level of darkening. Original publishers dark blue cloth with silver illustration of The Endurance to front board. Spine and front board lettered in silver. Publishers blind stamped device to back board. Minor rubbing to the extremities and very small split(about 0.3 inch), without loss, to the top front hinge.

        The Moon and Sixpence

      London: Heinemann. (1919). One of Maugham's most successful and influential novels, loosely based on the life of the artist Paul Gauguin but with autobiographical elements as well: a respected professional leaves his conventional life, and his family, to pursue the life of an artist -- a path that Maugham himself took shortly after writing this book. It was the first novel he published after the success of Of Human Bondage, an autobiographical novel that is still considered one of the high spots of 20th century literature, which established Maugham as a major writer of his generation. This follow-up, also a 20th century high spot, confirmed that place. The Moon and Sixpence has been filmed several times, including a 1959 television movie with Laurence Olivier in the lead role, his first American television appearance, for which he won an Emmy Award. First issue, with four pages of ads at the rear integral, not inserted. Pages browned with age, as is usual with this title. Cloth a bit edge-darkened with trace rubbing to the extremities; near fine in a very good, spine-darkened dust jacket with a few slivers of loss to the spine fold and the front flap fold. A very nice copy of an early Maugham book, which almost never turns up in dust jacket. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Rewolucja w Niemczech [Revolution in Germany]

      Lodz—Warsaw: Ksiazka i Sztuka, 1919. Original Wraps. Near Fine. SZYK, Arthur. SZYK, Arthur. Rewolucja W. Niemczech [Revolution in Germany]. Text by Julian Tuwim, in Polish. Lodz—Warsaw: Ksiazka i Sztuka, 1919. 30 pp. Original wrappers with illustrations on both covers, bound with original burgundy cord. Top right corner of front cover shows evidence of prior folding, small adhesion mark to back wrapper, otherwise, Near Fine Condition.& & FIRST EDITION of Szyk's first published book of political satire, mocking the German nation in the aftermath of World War I.& & Arthur Szyk, together with the poet Julian Tuwim, presents an illustrated story of a mentally and spiritually skewed German nation lunging towards a nonsensical revolution. The Schlegel quote on the first page sets the tone— “Deutsch sein heisst charakter haben” [To be German means to have [special quality] character]. This is surely a cutting reference to the absurdity of German arrogance and characters such as Otto Gotlieb Schmock (pun is obvious), Schweinwanz (compound of “pig” and “bedbug”), Germainer (“uncouth”) and Schwanzenhund (“tail of dog”) continue the irreverent mockery. References to the German imperial superiority and status as a god-favored nation are presented with such tongue in cheek observations as “The German God is a sturdy castle”. By the end of the book, even God has become a good German; for inspiring Schmock, He is presented a high rank as well as a black, white, and red ribbon reading “The royal Prussian God of the royal chamber”.& & Szyk's armed forces services. Szyk joined the Russian Army and served in the Battle of Lodz in the autumn of 1914. When the city was captured by Germans, he returned to his hometown and, surprisingly enough, was allowed to live normally and work as an artist. After the war, he directed his vibrant patriotic passions towards serving in the newly created Polish state. During the Polish-Soviet War of 1919—20, he was made artistic director of the Department of Propaganda for the Polish Army and was later decorated for his contributions to the war effort. It was during this tenure that he drew the illustrations for Revolution in Germany.& & Julian Tuwim (1894—1953) was born in Lodz and is considered to have been one of the outstanding Polish poets of the first half of the 20th century. From a strong Jewish background, he was also politically well educated and possessed a vibrant Polish spirit. Like Szyk, he was enthralled with Poland's liberation and his books of poetry were filled with idealism and awe. Soon enough the harsh realities of life changed his outlook and his works became sharper, more angry and full of the dark comic sarcasm so evident in Revolution in Germany.& & Extreme rarity. The scarcity of this work cannot be underscored. At the age of 25, Szyk was only just becoming known, a fact—when coupled with the delicacy of the binding—that makes this item precious indeed. OCLC lists only two institutional copies: Hoover Institution and UC Berkeley.
