        Some British Ballads

      London: Constable & Co. Ltd., 1919. "Never did Old Poems Appear so Gayly Bedecked than Some British Ballads..." RACKHAM, Arthur. Some British Ballads. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co. Ltd, n.d. [1919]. Limited to 575 numbered and signed copies by the artist, this being copy no. 482. Quarto (11 1/16 x 8 7/8 inches; 281 x 226 mm.). x, 170, [1, imprint], [1, blank] pp. Sixteen full color tipped-in plates with tissue guards lettered in red, twenty-four black and white drawings. Bound ca. 1992 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for E. Joseph (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in full dark blue crushed levant morocco. Covers ruled in gilt, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt to match the original 1919 cover design, spine paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled board edges and turn-ins, top edge gilt, others uncut, marbled end-papers. A fine copy. "Several of the Ballads in this book are based on the great work of Francis James Child..." (Note) "Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures ... one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920). "Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings... It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book-Mr. Rackham's paintings or the ballads themselves" (New York Times). "No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920). Haskell and Latimore p. 50; Riall, p. 137.

        The Royal Regiment of Artillery at Le Cateau, Wednesday, 26th August 1914.

      Woolwich: Printed at the Royal Artillery Institution Printing House, January, 1919 - Octavo. Original red cloth-backed printed boards. Corners rubbed, small patch of tape residue around spine tail, internally sound and clean, a very good copy. 5 folding maps and 4 folding sketches in an end-pocket. First edition, and a highly important copy, of this invaluable, extremely detailed, stage-by-stage account of the conduct of this pivotal battle. This copy has the blue-pencilled ownership inscription of Gen. H.L. Smith-Dorrien to the upper board, and his annotations to some 20 pages. On the death of Grierson, Smith-Dorrien had been given command of 2nd Corps by Kitchener, despite French's clear preference for Plumer, and despite the BEF commander's running feud with Smith-Dorrien. For his part Smith-Dorrien "stepped voluntarily into the confrontation" (ODNB). Smith-Dorrien took over 2nd Corps on 20 August, and three days later the BEF was heavily engaged in the battle of Mons, followed by a retreat closely pursued by considerably superior German forces. "In the early hours of 26 August Smith-Dorrien was advised by Allenby, commanding the cavalry division, that for once his cavalry were too dispersed to cover the 2nd Corps retreat. Fearing that the Germans would overwhelm his troops on the road, Smith-Dorrien accepted that his only choice was to stand and fight, delivering a 'stopping blow' to the enemy. Strictly, this was against French's orders to continue the retreat, but it was a situation well understood in military regulations. Smith-Dorrien's decision was supported by others on the spot who agreed to serve under him, including Allenby, and permission to fight was received from French shortly before dawn. However, French, whose conduct of the campaign was becoming increasingly erratic, let 1st corps continue its retreat rather than moving to support 2nd corps. The resulting battle of Le Cateau was a demonstration of one of the most difficult of all military manoeuvres, a delaying operation and retreat from contact. Smith-Dorrien's troops, with both their flanks in the air, fought a German attack of about twice their own strength to a standstill, and then marched away in broad daylight. Casualties for the battle were heavy but it enabled 2nd Corps to break contact, and the Germans did not locate the BEF again until 1 September. The destruction of half the BEF had Smith-Dorrien mishandled 2nd corps at Le Cateau would have had incalculable results, and his military reputation has come to rest heavily on this small but important battle." Subsequently French dismissed Smith-Dorrien in favour of his original choice for the command, Lieutenant-General Sir Herbert Plumer, and a combination of military-political machinations and ill-health meant that this command was Smith-Dorrien's last active service role. Further, in 1919 when French's memoir of 1914 began to be published in instalments, it became clear that it "contained an account of Le Cateau and Smith-Dorrien's conduct so inaccurate as to verge on the defamatory, as well as contradicting the version in French's own official dispatches. Although now Viscount Ypres and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, French was, like Smith-Dorrien, still on the active list, and the publication itself was of doubtful legality." Smith-Dorrien's request for a Royal Commission to examine the matter was refused by the Machiavellian Sir Henry Wilson, now CIGS, and he had to satisfy himself with stating his version of events in a privately circulated memoir. "Smith-Dorrien's final triumph came when the first volume of the official history of the First World War appeared in 1922, citing official documents supporting his position. Although largely forced upon him, Smith-Dorrien's dignified public silence won him much sympathy and credence for his own memoirs which appeared in 1925 after French's death." The present work was compiled by a notable military historian and gunner officer who was attached to the Historical Section (Military Branch) of the Committee of Imperial Defence, who ther [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      [c. 1919]. - Second edition. English and Arabic text. Numerous half-tone photographic plates, the majority with multiple images. Small folio. Original brown pictorial cloth, gilt; small white stain to front cover, extremities slightly rubbed. A nice copy of a book usually found in poor condition. [104] pp. Basrah: Government Press. A fascinating photographic survey of Iraq with an important final section on Saudi Arabia. This, the second edition, is structured slightly differently to the first and includes a new three page section on the Imam Husayn Shrine at Karbala. The final section is entitled: ?A Tour through Central Arabia. The following pictures were taken by a British Officer touring through Central Arabia with an escort of Arabs.? This is probably the first publication concerning Philby's mission to Ibn Saud in Riyadh in 1917. In company with Col. F. Cunliffe Owen, Philby left Bagdad on the 29th October and stopped in Basra, where he bought a camera, and all the photographic paraphernalia required for developing his own film. He pressed on for Riyadh, arriving on the 30th November, where he spent several days in diplomatic discussion, before continuing his journey to Jedda. Badr El-Hage, pp86-115; not in Macro. Rare. Copac locates just four copies of the second edition, at Exeter (two copies), the Imperial War Museum and the British Library. WorldCat adds no further holdings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Selten! Der Imaginismus (russisch: Imaschinism) war eine russische Dichtergruppierung zu Beginn der 1920er Jahre, die im Zusammenhang mit der so genannten Gruppowtschina, der Teilung der russischen Literatur in viele kleine Strömungen gesehen werden muss. Hauptvertreter waren Wadim Scherschenewitsch, Anatoli Marienhof und Alexander Kussikow sowie zum Teil Sergei Jessenin. Den Auftakt der Bewegung bildete 1919 die Veröffentlichung eines Manifests in der Woronescher Zeitschrift Sirena. Die Bewegung grenzte sich einerseits programmatisch von den Futuristen ab, indem sie anstelle des Wortes das Bild in den Mittelpunkt ihrer Dichtung stellte, andererseits baute sie in vielem auf diesen auf. Das Bild sollte in der Dichtung der Imaginisten vollständig von Form und Inhalt befreit werden. Die Bewegung war sehr kurzlebig und verschwand bereits Mitte der zwanziger Jahre von der Bildfläche. Die Klammerheftung etwas angerostet, der Deckel leichter randgebräunt, am Rücken etwas eingerissen, innen leichter gebräunt und marginalen Randläsuren. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Winesburg, Ohio: A Group of Tales of Ohio Small-Town Life. With Introduction by Ernest Boyd

      New York: Modern Library, 1919 (ca. 1930). Later edition. Flexible boards. Good -. 16mo, 303pp. This is a Modern Library reprint, in bindng style 5.1 (per Toledano), which dates the printing to about 1930, although the only date on the copyright page states 1919. Overall good at best in the publisher's brown cloth flexible boards stamped in gilt. The last few leaves are torn with old tape repairs, affecting text. The front hinge is thinly cracked and the half-title page has an old tape repair, as well. With these unfortunate flaws and the missing dust jacket, this would be essentially a worthless book, however this one is boldly and wonderfully SIGNED by Anderson on the half-title page. As noted above, there are tape repairs around that leaf, but the signature is completely unaffected. There is an old bookseller ticket, partially torn, on the rear paste-down, and a previous owner's name on the front free endpaper. An entirely unsophisticated and rather worn example, but this work remains Anderson's great literary triumph, and signed copies of this title are uncommon, regardless of edition.

Original printed wrappers, slightly dust-soiled, one corner creased. Very good copy, inscribed by Kelly on the front wrapper: "For the Library Howard A. Kelly." First Edition, Offprint Issue.

Kelly dedicated the present paper to Sir William Osler "on the occasion of his seventieth birthday . . . when he is proving himself the best refutation of his jesting computation of the years of a man's usefulness."

        World War I mail from a German Prisoner of War held at the American prison camp at Krasnaya-Retchka, Siberia during the Allied intervention in Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution

      Vladivostok, Siberia 1919 - Envelope only, no letter. The envelope is addressed to Anna Raumgarten, Altona-Elbe, Germany. The return address reads, "Prisoner of war Mail / Vladivostok / Siberia / American prison camp / Martin Prigge / No. 326." It bears a small steel circular postmark that reads, "U.S. Postal Agency Siberia, Oct 2 10 AM 1919," and a type C-5 Unit Censor handstamp that reads, "A. E. F. Siberia / Censored / Sig ????." The censor stamp has been initialed in red ink. The envelope is in very nice shape. In November 1918, a company of the U.S. 27th Infantry Regiment assumed control of the Russian prison camp at Krashnaya-Retchka (Red River) which was located about 10 miles southeast of Khabarovs. The company was augmented by command and medical personnel, with Lieutenant Colonel Morrow serving as the camp commandant. Morrow found camp conditions to be abysmal and camp records nearly non-existent. Two-thirds of the 2,000 Germans, Austrians, and Hungarians held in the camp were officers. 1,800 of them were incapacitated to varying degrees by influenza, about 450 badly so. The Americans immediately began to reorganize the camp and set the prisoners to work using Russian supplies and equipment to build barracks, establish a boiler plant, install water and electrical systems, create a mess hall and hospital, begin barber and laundry operations, organize an orchestra and athletic teams, and much more. Almost needless to say, the prisoners were overjoyed to be treated humanely. Later during the intervention when the 27th Infantry was reassigned to Verkhne-Udinsk, one thousand prisoners volunteered to fight alongside the unit against any and all forces without pay. Not much is known about Prigge, however other cards and envelopes he sent from various Russian prisoner of war camps exist dating back to 1915. While the Allied intervention in Russia was all but forgotten in the West, it remained an open wound in the mind of Soviet leadership throughout the Cold War. This remarkable envelope documents one of the least known facets of that conflict. All mail related to the American intervention in Siberia is scarce. Mail from the prison camp at Krashnaya-Retchka is rare as are signed examples of the C-5 censor stamp. Van Dam's Postal History of the A.E.F. notes only eight extant examples of American prison camp mail from Siberia, all of which are preprinted official POW cards. For more information about the American prisoner of war camp see Wolfhounds and Polar Bears in Siberia by John M. House.
