        Iraq in War Time. Second Edition.

      - Basrah, printed and engraved at the Government Press, [1919]. Folio. Original brown cloth, front cover illustrated and lettered in gilt (in English), rear cover lettered in Arabic; pp. [104] hundreds of photographic illustrations, text in English and Arabic; only minor rubbing to the binding in places only, internally clean and fresh. This is an intriguing document of Iraq during the Great War, with excursions into Central Arabia, making this 'the first photographic book to appear on Najd' (Badr El-Hage). In 1918 Harry St John Philby ended his service with the British administration in Baghdad from 1915 to 1917 by travelling through the interior of the Arabian peninsula as head of a mission to Ibn Saud. During the nine-month journey of the Nejd he travelled some 4000 kilometres. He selected from over 600 photos taken in preparing this rare and beautiful publication. The second edition is most likely merely a re-issue of the original sheets of 1918 with a different colour of cloth chosen for the binding. The volume is divided into four sections of photos: Groups and Portraits, Local Events, Views and A Tour through Central Arabia. One photo shows 'the tourist' (Philby) amidst his Arabic-British escort. The Arabist, explorer, writer and British colonial intelligence officer (spy) known as Jack Philby or Sheikh Abdullah was stationed during the First World War with the British Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force in Baghdad, which organized the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire and secured the oil flields of the Shatt al Arab and Basrah for the needs of the Navy. He was sent on a mission to Ibn Saud, whom he favoured as the future King of the Arabs. He later became an important mediator between the house of Ibn Saud and Western oil companies. His travels earned him in 1920 the Royal Geographical Society Founder's Gold Medal for his journeys in Arabia. Badr El-Hage, Saudi Arabia: Caught in Time, 1861-1939, p. 95. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        World War One photograph album documenting life in the 13th Infantry Regiment Band

      Camp Merritt, New Jersey, 1919. Album. Very good. This 11" x 7" album contains over 265 photographs documenting life in the 13th Infantry Regiment Band while stationed at Camp Merritt after the armistice. The photos, range in size from 2" x 3" to 7" x 10". Some of the pages are captioned, and many band member photos are identified by last names. The album, leaves and photographs are all in very nice shape. The album includes a group photograph of the band members with their instruments posing in front of two barracks buildings and a second group photograph titled, "13th Infantry, Camp Merritt N.J. May 1919" that shows about 160 men seated and standing on bleachers. There are about 110 posed photographs of individual solders; in about 65 of images, the men are holding their instrument. Other photographs show the men relaxing in camp and visiting with women. One interesting image shows a soldier using a giant megaphone to make an announcement, and another shows two soldiers standing in the doorway of a Cresskill, New Jersey diner. Three photographs are of "Warships on the Hudson," and there are a number taken while on leave including one of a baseball game at the Polo Grounds. The 13th Infantry Regiment was assigned to the 8th Division, one of the last Regular Army divisions to activate during World War One. Only several of the division's units had arrived in France prior to the Armistice, which was signed while the 13th was still at sea. It never landed in France, but instead was recalled to the States and garrisoned at Fort Merritt, New Jersey. Military band photograph collections from World War One are very scarce. As of 2017, OCLC show none being held by institutions, and none are for sale in the trade. There are no auction records listed at ABPC, the Rare Book Hub, or Worthpoint.

      [Alaska, 1919. 215 silver gelatin photographs, varying sizes, plus 15 photo post cards and 28 color printed post cards. Oblong quarto. Black leatherette album. Light scuffing to covers and light edge wear. Photos mounted directly on black card stock. Several photos loose, some mild fading to a few images. Very good. A fascinating photograph album compiled by a U.S. Navy engineer, a member of the service expedition to the American naval radio stations in Cordova and Seward in Alaska in the summer and autumn of 1919. The party travelled to Alaska from the Mare Island naval base near San Francisco on board U.S.S. Saturn and at first worked on construction and renovations of the Mile 7 (Eyak) and Mile 14 (Hanscom) naval radio stations, parts of the Cordova Station located along the route of the Copper River and Northwestern Railway. After that the working party constructed cottages at the Naval Radio Station in Seward on the Kenai Peninsula. The first photograph in the album is a group portrait of the members of the "Radio Party at Childs Glacier" near Cordova, taken by a prominent Alaskan photographer and a resident of Cordova, Eric A. Hegg (1867-1947). These are followed by a series of views of the Cordova radio stations at Mile 7 (several general views, including the flooded grounds, a bridge washout, the surrounding mountains, a nearly waterfall, a flume for domestic water, and Lake Eyak) and at Mile 14 (including a work party, wood crib and radio towers, a picture of the station taken from the top of one of the towers, several views of cottage construction and completed houses, and the engine and operation buildings). Several photos show the Copper River and Northwestern Railroad: a trestle bridge at Cordova, another bridge at Childs Glacier (with distant and close up views), the railway out of Cordova, the party on a train at Mile 50, and others. There are also views of Cordova (of 1st Street, the wharf, Cordova Bay, the group members "in front of Kenney Holdens in Cordova"), McKinley Lake, Scott Glacier, and Sheridan Glacier. Photos of the expedition in Seward begin with a large group portrait of the party members taken in the city. A number of images depict the naval radio station (including a general view of the grounds, a closer view of the radio tower, and different stages of construction dated 24th of September, and 1, 3rd, and 17th of October 1919). Other images show views of Seward and its environs, "Haymaking in Alaska", a copper mine in Latouche, cabins near Roosevelt Lake, U.S.S. Saturn near Seward, and the party members on board. Included in these are photos showing the "black gang" of the ship, and party members having meals, hiking, doing laundry, crossing a glacier stream, and watching a boxing match; several members are named in captions. Also included are a number of photos of the Alaska Railroad, its engines and railcars, and portraits of the group onboard. Real photo postcards depict a part of Prince William Sound, the wreck of S.S. Olympia from December 1910, two winter scenes in Cordova and Childs Glacier by John E. Thwaites, the Mariposa wreck, views of Cordova and Mile 7 by C.F. Rosswog, and of Seward. Color printed postcards show views of Seward, Petersburg, the Treadwell Mines, Skagway, Juneau, Valdez, and the Muir Glacier. A thorough and substantial photograph album documenting the development of early naval radio communication in Alaska just after World War I.

        The art of Arthur Streeton (With an 1890 Streeton exhibition invitation and Streeton cut signature)

      Sydney : Angus & Robertson Ltd, 1919. Special number of Art in Australia. Limited edition of 1500 copies; a fair copy, but theverso of the half title has two important ephemeral items laid in: 1. an extremely early and rare Streeton exhibition invitation on thick paper, 84 x 110 mm, with photolithographed illustrated design and text, 'The honor of Mr. Walter J. Anderson's [in MS] company is requested at a private view of pictures by Mr. Arthur Streeton, Mr. C. Douglas Richardson, Mr. Charles Conder at their studios, Gordon Bdgs., Flinders Lane [between Queen and Market Streets] on Thursday, Friday and Saturday the 13, 14, 15 of March, 1890. 11 a.m - 5 p.m.' (small section of surface loss towards the left edge, otherwise in good condition. 2. a cut signature of Streeton with his 49 Murphy St. South Yarra address (the Streetons' home after their return from London in 1921), ink on thick paper, 33 x 65 mm, a few spots of foxing but clean and legible. The invitation to the viewing of Streeton's, Conder's and Richardson's pictures is unrecorded in Australian collections. A brief review of the exhibition appeared in the ArgusonMarch 14 1890: 'Local artists are beginning to prepare fortheir autumnal exhibition, and MessrsCharles Conder, Arthur Streeton, and C.Douglas Richardson have conjointly issuedinvitations to a private view of their pictures in Gordon Chambers. Heidelbergseems to have furnished some attractivelandscape subjects to the two first, und MrStreeton's large canvas, upon whichhe has depicted a somewhat strikingscene, shows a distinct advance upon hisformer work. It has gained indefinition without any loss of strength,and is truer to nature than the pictures, orsketches, which used to leave one in doubtas to what was the specific object intendedto be represented. Mr Conder remainsfaithful to his impressionist methods, whichare least objectionable, because they are no tooclosely followed, in a pleasing picture of astretch of sandy sea beach on a hot summerday. Mr Richardson introduces us to abit of bush life, the interior of ashepherd's hut, the aged occupant of whichis stretched on a bed of sickness, and isvisited by the daughter of his employer...'

        South. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition, 1914-1917

      Heinemann, London 1919 - 1919 [first edition, first impression]. Royal octavo (255 x 165 mm), [ii] (blank), xxii, 376 pages with 6 sketch maps (one full-page) plus a colour frontispiece with a captioned tissue-guard, a double-page panorama and 86 full-page plates, a large folding map, and an errata slip (tipped in at page 1). Original silver-pictorial dark blue cloth lightly rubbed and bumped at the extremities; front cover lightly marked near the leading edge; endpapers foxed; acidic paper uniformly discoloured as ever with this first impression; a few tiny edge tears, and a short tear to the map near the stub, expertly sealed; an excellent copy. Provenance: from the personal collection of Richard Walter Richards, one of the Ross Sea Shore Party, with his contemporary ownership details on the front flyleaf: 'R W Richards ITAE 1914-17'. The Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-17 comprised two teams, the Weddell Sea party in the 'Endurance' and the Ross Sea party in the 'Aurora'. 'An essential aspect of Shackleton's scheme for crossing the Antarctic was that a second and quite separate expedition should establish a base on the Ross Sea to provide support for the transantarctic party and establish forward depots'. Things went horribly wrong for both parties, with the 'Endurance' fragmenting under the pressure of being locked in the ice of the Weddell Sea, resulting in the famous journey of survival that culminated in the epic voyage of the 22-foot boat 'James Caird' to South Georgia Island. Shackleton then learned that the men of the Ross Sea party were stranded on Ross Island, 'Aurora' having been torn from its moorings during a severe storm at the onset of the previous winter and being unable to return. When the relief expedition finally reached them, three members of the party had perished. Shackleton returned 'to England in May 1917 and dictated the text of the popular account of the expedition to Edward Saunders, largely from recollection. Final editing was carried out by Leonard Hussey, with personal accounts by Mackintosh, Stenhouse and others, and the book was finally published in 1919' (Howgego, Volume 3). 'This exploit, which has captured the modern imagination, certainly struck the world differently in 1919; in the aftermath of the First World War feats of extraordinary heroism were thick on the ground, and so Shackleton's truly remarkable tale of survival at the extremes of human endurance largely fell flat. This is emphasised in the book's production: the first issue contained cheap paper prone to severe browning, a poorly crafted binding likely to split at the joints with normal usage and silver printing on the binding subject to oxidizing' (The Taurus Collection, 2001). The Ross Sea party remained stranded until January 1917, when 'Aurora', which had been repaired and refitted in New Zealand, arrived to rescue them. Public recognition of their efforts was slow in coming, but in due course four Albert Medals were awarded to members of the party, two posthumously. Richard Walter Richards (1893-1985) was one of those awarded the Albert Medal in 1923 for his efforts on the ice to save the lives of two of his comrades; this award was converted in 1971 to the George Cross. He outlived all other members of the expedition, and became the last survivor of the 'Heroic Age' of Antarctic exploration. A contemporary review by Peter Schledermann in the journal 'Arctic' of the 2003 reprint of Richards' personal account, 'The Ross Sea Shore Party, 1914-17' (first published in 1962), is less sanguine: 'The account of the Ross Sea Party remains vastly overshadowed by Shackleton's "Endurance" calamity. The fact that three men, and very nearly the entire party, died while carrying out their part of Shackleton's lofty trans-Antarctic plans may further explain the relative obscurity of this episode, as it somewhat tarnishes the heroic shine of Shackleton's efforts'.

Tales of Mystery and Imagination. Illustrated by Harry Clarke. London: George G. Harrap & Co., 1919. First Harry Clarke trade edition. Quarto (10 1/2 x 8 1/8 inches; 268 x 206 mm.). 381, [2], [1, blank] pp. With twenty-four black and white plates and ten decorative tail-pieces and vignettes repeated throughout the text (two of which were used several times in Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen). Original sage-green buckram over boards. Front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in black, spine pictorially stamped in black and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Extremities very slightly rubbed otherwise a fine copy. "Mr. Harry Clarke has allowed himself full liberty in attempting to express the features of Poe's Tales which differentiate them from others. In his drawings, the morbid imaginings of Poe's extraordinary genius are depicted without any attempt to soften their weird effects upon most readers. At the same time the drawings are extremely beautiful. They exhibit a wealth of delicate and intricate design such as few other, if any, living artists can command" (Harrap's advertising feature in the Bookman's Christmas Supplement, quoted in Bowe, p. 52).

        Edith von Schrenck Mappe. Lithographien nach dem "Kriegertanz", "Policinell" und "Gefesselt".

      München, Kunstanstalt Hubert Köhler 1919. - 20 sign. Orig.-Lithographien und 1 Blatt mit Impressum lose in Orig.-Kartonmappe. 23 x 19 cm. Nr. 18 von 50 Exemplaren. - Die ausdruckstarken Lithographien mit Darstellungen der Tänzerin und Tanzpädagogin Edith von Schrenck (1891-1971); laut Impressum können die Tafeln in einer bestimmten Abfolge zu zwei Tanzfriesen angeordnet werden. - Otto Heinrich Strohmeyer (1895–1967) studiert auf Geheiß seines Vaters Architektur in München. Seinem eigentlichen Interesse nach zeichnete, malte, komponierte und musizierte er aber daneben unbeirrt weiter. Als Architekt und Städteplaner war Strohmeyer nach dem Krieg maßgeblich am Wiederaufbau Hamburgs beteiligt. Dargestellt auf seinen hier angebotenen Lithographien sind Tanzszenen der aus Sankt Petersburg stammenden Ausdruckstänzerin, Choreographin und Tanzpädagogin Edith von Schrenck. Im Zuge der Oktoberrevolution 1917 verließ sie mit ihrer Familie Russland und startete von München aus, wo sie vermutlich auch Otto Heinrich Strohmeyer kennen lernte, ihre Tanzkarriere. Sie debütiert nach etwa einem Jahr intensiver eigener Tanzstudien in den Kammerspielen, um anschließend mit ihren Solotänzen auf Tournee durch ganz Europa zu gehen. Im Mai 1919 traf sie während eines Gastspiels in Frankfurt am Main auf den Schriftsteller Waldemar Bonsels, der für sie zur großen Liebe und zum Mentor wurde. - Die Mappe leicht gebrauchsspurig, die Tafeln sauber und frisch!

        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,

        Siuru I, II, and III (complete series)

      Kirjanikkude Ühingu, Tallinn and Tartu 1919 - Quartos (27 × 19.2 cm). Later buckram bindings, preserving original pictorial wrappers by Nikolai Triik and Ado Vabbe (front and back); 148, [2]; 115, [4]; and 134 pp. Three full-page illustrations by Triik (volume I), six full-page drawings, of which one in red and black, and one vignette by Vabbe, as well as his publisher's and series device (volume II); Vabbe's wrapper design once reproduced within (volume III). Resized to bindings; one volume with owner signature and some foxing to wrappers; else very good, clean copies. Complete run of this short-lived expressionist-influenced anthology by the eponymous Estonian literary group, published from 1917-19. Centered around the leading modernist poet Marie Under, the "Siuru" group consisted of bohemian spirits whose work emphasized sensual experience and joyous optimism. Among its members were Friedebert Tuglas, Arthur Adson, August Gailit, Henrik Visnapuu and Johannes Semper. In addition to these writers' works, the anthology also contains poetry by Johannes Barbarus, Rudolf Reimann, Arthur Valdes, Jaan Oks, Aleksander Tassa, Richard Roht and Johannes Aavik. Work in translation includes writing by Georg Heym, Franz Werfel, and Paul Boldt, Aubrey Beardsley, Zigmunt Krasinski, and Emile Verhaeren The group took its name from the mythological fire bird "Siuru" that appears in the Estonian national epic "Kalevipoeg". Its members were very visible in Tallinn, meeting not only in Under's salon, but also in Tallinn's coffee houses, and some members had a reputation for rebellious behavior. Wrappers by Nikolai Triik in an expressionist style that corresponds to the aesthetics of some of the "Siuru" writers: "Es wäre falsch, die Siuru-Gruppe in eine ästhetisierende Ecke abzudrängen, die sich nicht darum kümmerte, was in der Welt um sie herum geschah. Schon die Illustrationen von Nikolai Triik im ersten Album wiesen in die Richtung eines Expressionismus im Sinne einer Anklage gegen die Unmenschlichkeit der Welt" (Hasselblatt 418). The first issue was printed in 780 copies, of which 40 copies were printed on Alexandria paper, numbered (these copies all unnumbered). No papier copies in North America: KVK, OCLC show a copy of the first volume at Munich, a complete run at the Finish National Library and a microfilm at New York Public Library.

        48 views of the Concentration Camp, Berrima, New South Wales, Australia, 1914-1919.

      Sydney : Epworth Press, [c.1919]. First (and only) edition. Oblong octavo, publisher's printed grey wrappers. 48 pp, all half tone black and white photographic plates, internally clean and sound. Scarce. These photographs of the Berrima Internment Camp were taken by D. Speer, a Bowral photographer. Among the images are numerous shots of the internees on the Wingecarribee River with their wonderful home-made, large-scale model boats. During World War One numerous internment camps for enemy aliens were established around Australia. The internees were citizens of Germany or the various states of the Austro-Hungarian empire who were domiciled or working in Australia at the outbreak of the war. Some were employees of the German colonial administration or German commercial enterprises in New Guinea and the Pacific, captured by Austraian forces towards the beginning of hostilities. There were several camps in New South Wales, the largest being at Holsworthy, near Liverpool, west of Sydney, where almost 7000 men were confined. Other camps were located at Berrima, Trial Bay, Bourke and Molonglo. The first internees arrived at the Berrima Camp (the old Berrima Gaol) in March 1915. Between late 1915 and 1918 the number of prisoners at Berrima gradually increased from 200 to around 300. The freedoms granted to internees at Berrima were, generally speaking, generous, especially in comparison with conditions at Holsworthy. The internees were given as much independence as possible, and the camp resembled more a German-speaking township than a prison, with a constant programme of recreational activities conducted both within the camp and in the local area. Prisoners were allowed to roam free within a two-mile radius in daylight hours, but were confined to the gaol at night. They shopped with local retailers and established a cordial rapport with the community; their industry in building canoes, a bridge, huts and a garden for picnics attracted tourists. Ironically, an exclusive section for the internees had to be created near the river, surrounded by a barbed wire fence - not to prevent prisoners from escaping, but to protect them from a small number of hostile Australian citizens.
