        TREATY OF PEACE WITH GERMANY

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1919. 537pp., printed in French and English on facing pages, plus four maps. Large quarto. Blue cloth, stamped in gilt on front board and spine. Cloth discolored and waterstained, worn at spine ends and corners. Hinges cracked. Light dampstain throughout. Good. An association copy of the utmost significance, this is the personal copy of California Republican Senator Hiram Johnson, one of the leaders of the sixteen "Irreconcilables" in the United States Senate who opposed the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations, and were therefore instrumental in ensuring that the U.S. would not ratify the treaty. Johnson's career in politics began when he was elected the Republican Governor of California in 1910. In 1912 he was Theodore Roosevelt's vice-presidential nominee on the Progressive Party ticket, and he was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Republican in 1916. Johnson was a leading critic of Woodrow Wilson's war aims, opposing the Fourteen Points and seeking to withdraw American troops from Russia in 1919. Thomas Bailey, whose work is still the best on the fight over ratification of the Treaty of Versailles, asserts that Johnson, among all the members of the so- called "Battalion of Death" which opposed the Treaty, "was the most accomplished rabble-rouser of them all." Spurred by his fervent isolationism, and harboring plans to run for President in 1920, Johnson made Wilson's efforts to sway public opinion in favor of the Treaty especially difficult. In the fall of 1919 Johnson trailed Wilson on a cross-country speaking tour, denouncing the pact wherever the President spoke. In his bitter opposition to the Treaty, "Johnson wielded a meat- ax...His noise-making ability came to be a standing joke: he did not attack, he 'flayed.' Yet no one could deny that the man had bulldog tenacity, a ripsaw voice, and the ability to move great crowds. Friends of the League [of Nations] decried Johnson's cave-man mentality and his completely closed mind" - Bailey. When the treaty was sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification, each Senator received one clothbound and one wrapperbound copy for their own use. A typed letter from the Printing Clerk of the U.S. Senate laid into this copy informs each Senator that additional copies could not be provided quickly because the maps had to be reproduced in Europe. The present copy is Hiram Johnson's personal copy, with his name stamped in gilt on the front board. Bound into the rear of Johnson's copy is a separately printed index to the treaty. Loosely laid in is a 43pp. document prepared by former State Department officer J. Ruben Clark entitled DATA ON GERMAN PEACE TREATY, printed by the Government Printing Office in 1919. This is the official United States government printing of the Treaty of Versailles, a document of monumental importance in American and world history. The treaty, made with Germany at the end of the First World War, concluded a war of unrivalled devastation while also sowing the seeds for the Second World War, just twenty years on the horizon. The United States, guided by Woodrow Wilson's vision, played a central role in the crafting of the treaty. The U.S. Senate refused to ratify the treaty, however, based on the objection of several senators to the Covenant of the League of Nations (which was included as Part I of the settlement), thereby largely removing American influence and involvement from the international scene in the inter-war period. Especially objectionable to the Senate was Article 10, by which the members of the League agreed to protect the territorial integrity and political independence of any member of the League. This official American printing of the treaty is noted as Senate Document 51 of the first session of the 66th Congress. It was referred to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on July 10, 1919, and ordered to be printed. The Treaty of Versailles was a wide-ranging and ambitious document, which sought not only to address the immediate postwar settlement, but also to punish Germany for its actions in starting and prosecuting the war, attempted to remake the map of Europe, and created a supra-national political organization, the League of Nations. The Covenant of the League of Nations comprises the first part of the treaty. The next most famous part is that dealing with reparations, which includes Article 231, the infamous "war guilt clause." By this article, Germany and her allies accepted the responsibility "for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies." The intent of the article was to affix legal and financial responsibility on Germany, but it took on moral implications, and was used by Hitler during his rise as an example of Allied perniciousness. Germany had to agree to pay reparations to the allies in the sum of 20,000,000,000 gold marks, the amount to be modified by a reparations commission in 1921. Germany also had to recognize the independence of Austria and agree not to compromise that independence in the future. Germany's borders were redrawn, with Alsace-Lorraine being given to France, West Prussia to Poland, and other lands, such as Danzig and the Saar Basin, stripped away. Germany lost its overseas possessions, the Rhineland was occupied, and the German army was limited to 100,000 men and largely disarmed. Other provisions address issues of tariffs, ports, labor, aerial navigation, prisoners of war, and more. As has been noted, the many punitive measures of the Treaty of Versailles did much to fan the seeds of discontent in postwar Germany and to facilitate the rise of Hitler, who publicly flaunted the provisions of the treaty throughout the 1930s. The refusal of the United States to ratify the treaty and participate in the League of Nations was a crucial part in the chain of events that led to the Second World War. A most important document in an incredibly significant association, being the personal copy of one of the leading Senate "Irreconcilables" who ensured that the United States would not ratify the treaty. ANB 12, pp.78-81. Thomas A. Bailey, WOODROW WILSON AND THE GREAT BETRAYAL (New York, 1945), p.63 and passim.

        CONDITIONS DE PAIX / CONDITIONS OF PEACE

      [Paris, 1919. xv,[1],415pp. printed in French and English on facing pages, plus four large folding maps. Folio. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers rather creased and worn, with several short tears, and one tear about 1 1/2 inches in front wrapper penetrating to blank endsheet. Some tears in maps at tabs, but generally clean inside and about very good. One of several preliminary printings of the provisions of what was to become the June 28 1919 Treaty of Versailles, including as the first section the Covenant of the League of Nations, and the point-by-point demands made of a defeated Germany. As is often the case, this copy is docketed on the front wrapper in a contemporary hand: "Secret et Confidentiel." This printing transmitted authentic copies of the French and English texts for the purposes of study and discussion by the negotiating parties prior to the imminent signing. There were several preliminary printings of the text made in the weeks before June 28, 1919, with differences in form and content. The present copy contains a table of contents at the front, which is not present in another copy we have examined, perhaps indicating that this was one of the final printings made before the final version was agreed on. Shortly after the treaty was signed at least two interim printings were run off, the first with the Protocols separate and laid in, the second with the Protocols integral and incorporated in the wrapper title. Eventually, the "official" published edition, with its various forms and issues, was printed. The Treaty of Versailles is of monumental importance in American and world history. The treaty, made with Germany at the end of the First World War, concluded a war of unrivalled devastation while also sowing the seeds for the Second World War, just twenty years on the horizon.

A most important document, here in a preliminary version, printed in a small number for use by participants at the peace conference.

        Klounid ja faunid : Följetoonid (Clowns and Faun : Feuilletons Collection)

      Odamees, Tartu 1919 - Estonian language. Octavo 19 x 26 cm. Weight 330 gr. Wrappers, 153 [6] pp. Print run 1000 copies. The Book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Cover edges show light sunning and ocassional wear with some small closed tears, few foxing spots on the cover and fly-leaf; internally fine condition. Scarce and valuable edition, highly unusual selection of the early avant-garde in New Estonian Republic. This was the first Gailit's feuilleton pieces collection, but it has significant literary and artistic value. Book is a replete with illustrations and original graphics by great Estonian artists worked in Tartu, the hotbed of creativity. Here is collected best works of early classical modernists such as Konrad Mägi and Nikolai Triik, also abound works of bright avant-garde representatives - Avo Vabbe, Jaan Vahtra and others. Besides the color woodcut laid down on the original publishing cover and frontispiece (it is the same) by Rudolf Johannes Paris, book includes 92 illustrations. Here are abstract caricatures with prominent Estonian writers and artists by Rudolf Paris, portrait drawings by Konrad Mägi, ex librises and vignettes by Aleksander Tassa, collection of amazing woodcuts by Ado Vabbe and Jaan Vahtra, graphics by Nikolai Triik, great wood engravings by August Roosileht, drawings by Peet Aren, Kristjan Raud, Aleksander Uurits etc. August Gailit was a versatile Estonian writer, one of the cult literary group Siuru founders. In this feuilletons collection he satirizes Estonian literary scene, especially the same Siuru, which he established himself. It was a sharply critical stance against flaunt and bohemian literary style. Author's held a grudge against Friedebert Tuglas, Marie Under and Artur Adson, he didn't leave untouched also artists. Extremely strong is satire "Lady in Blue" there was Siuru members M. Under and A. Adson ridiculed. Book was firstly edited in 1919, but today, nearly a century later, it seems very contemporary in style. This comical book, type of literary game, sparked a furore at the time and left many colorful legends, which literary people enjoy still. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        South

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914–1917. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spines and front cover lettered in silver, front cover with large silver block of Endurance encased in ice, publisher's device in blind on back board. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Spine slightly faded and rubbed at ends, tips a little worn, short tear to map stub. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, with the three-line errata slip pasted into the gutter at page 1. "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".

        Vierhändig spielen. Original-Kaltnadelradierung. Undatiert, aber Entstehung um 1919 anzusetzen.

      Um 1919.. Format des Abdruckes ca. 25 x 16 cm, Blattgröße ca. 33,5 x 27,2 cm. Von Thoma am Plattenrand unterhalb der Radierung von Hand in Blei signiert. An den linken Rändern oben und unten auf Trägerkarton gefalzt, unter Passepartout gefaßt. Sauberer Abdruck. Bensinger, No. 187, III (von III). 3. Abdruck. - Ein sich optisch wie haptisch alle vier Pfoten bespielender Affe im seitlichen Profil. Die Graphik ist eigentlich unbezeichnet, die Betitelung „Vierhändig spielen", als auch die Datierung auf das erste Nachkriegsjahr folgt jedoch der maßgeblichen Monographie Bensingers. Angesichts der Datierung fällt es schwer, die fein gearbeitete Graphik anders zu deuten, denn als einen sehr nachdenklichen, an der Grenze zum zynisch-sarkastischen befindlichen Kommentar zu den im Entstehungsjahr 1919 allerorts sichtbaren, individuellen Folgen der ersten großen Katastrophe des 20. Jahrhunderts.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1919 - 1919 Original Hardback Wisden

      1919. Hi, Here we have a rare 1919 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. In my opinion the rarest 20th Century Wisden Hardback. The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to both the front and the spine. The boards are excellent, the bok seems a bit warped but a heavy book on top should cure that , a bobbling line to the front cover to the right with a slight knock to the right of the front board. Inside the hinges are very good, very tightly bound. The yellow pastedowns are good, it looks like a bookplate has been removed from the first page, you need to look close but I would say it has been. HD Swan to the right yellow page. Internally very good, Minimal foxing. Nice photoplate. Couple of pages have dog ears. A lovely book, a few niggles but still fabulous. Rare,
