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

      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,

Bound in dark blue cloth with pictorial stamping in gold gilt to both the front and back boards, as well as gilt decorations and lettering stamped to the spine. Grey illustrated endpapers. Original color pictorial box with coloured illustrated paste down, which is also used as the second illustration in "Young Bekie". Some bumping and wear to box, but in fairly good condition overall. Original glassine jacket intact, aside from a few closed tears to the front and a larger tear to back. All 16 tipped-in colour plates by Rackham on gray card stock with accompanying captions present and in fine condition; many black and white line drawings found throughout the text as well. All edges untrimmed. Inner contents clean and binding tight. Overall, a remarkably well preserved copy of this book with the original box and glassine jacket.Although there is no stated author on this book, some of the ballads have been attributed to the work of Francis James Child. Rackham's colour illustrations are especially stunning throughout and despite some of the disturbing and grotesque imagery, they all manage to be hauntingly beautiful as well. A rare book with the incredibly scarce pictorial box and glassine jacket, all in very good condition.

Shackleton's most famous expedition was planned to be an attempt to cross Antarctica from the Weddell Sea south of the Atlantic, to the Ross Sea south of the Pacific, by way of the Pole. It set out from London on 1 August 1914, and reached the Weddell Sea on January 10, 1915, where the pack ice closed in on the Endurance. The ship was broken by the ice on 27 October 1915. The 28 crew members managed to flee to Elephant Island, bringing three small boats with them. All of them survived after Shackleton and five other men managed to reach the southern coast of South Georgia in one of the small boats, from where Shackleton organized a rescue operation to bring home the remaining men.

      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.

May 1919" show about 160 men seated and standing on bleachers. There are about 110 posed photographs of individual solders; in about 65 of the men are holding their instrument. Other photographs show the men relaxing in camp and visiting with women.

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.
