Frank Dobie said, "Once you start reading Captain Gillett's story of the dog that guarded the Indian-besieged camp in Crow Flat; of the chase of old Victorio, Apache, into Mexico; of the round-up of outlaws in the Junction country; of the desperate ride after Sam Bass; of the Peg Leg robber gang on the San Saba; of the long ride with General Baylor from San Antonio to El Paso, you can not stop until you have finished the story, and then you want to begin the next." Boldly inscribed and signed by the author, Texas Ranger J. B. Gillett on the second free end page: "Very Truly Yours, J. B. Gillett." The first free end page has an inscription that reads: "Presented to Baylen (or Baylor) Shaw by the Author, 1922. 332 pages. All 8 plates are present with the original tissue guards.

The interior of the book is remarkably well preserved. Binding is tight. Book is straight. Condition of the book is Very Good, plus. A very clean book for its age.

        Two Typed Letters, signed, to Edward A. Filene, of the American Chamber of Commerce, regarding the work of the Commission in Germany

      Coblenz, Germany, 14 october, 1921. 4to. 10 pp., and a 3 pp. cover letter, on "Interallied Rhineland High Commission" stationery; the first with numerous corrections in ink; both marked "Personal" in pencil. Some wear at edges, slight soiling, old pinholes; overall, quite good. In green and grey morocco-backed clam shell box . The Interallied Rhineland High Commission was a civil body formed after World War I to govern occupied Germany on the Rhineland. During the summer of 1921, representatives of the American Chamber of Commerce had visited the Commission in Coblenz to voice their concerns about the lack of a European market for American exports - both agricultural and industrial. Following that visit, Stone writes this lengthy, and confidential analysis to Boston merchant Filene, outlining America's goals, the goals of the various members of the Commission, and the divergence of national interests amongst the allies. In particular, the policy of the French being to ensure its security against any future German aggression; the policy of the US, Stone reassures the Chamber of Commerce, being one of opening markets. Stone writes, prophetically: "The relations between France and Germany are the key to the situation in Europe at the present time."

      Williams and Norgate.London.,1921 - FIRST EDITION.Large 8vo.(10.2 x 7.8 inches).Illustrated with 96 plates.Publishers original green cloth binding with gilt lettering and ruling to spine.Binding a bit rubbed and bumped but overall sound and the gilt still bright.This copy has a full page original ink self portrait of Orpen on the front blank endpaper,showing the artist painting the famous American Wall Street lawyer and art collector,Paul Cravath.----The drawing is inscribed by Orpen at the bottom of the page "My very dear Mr Cravath-It was a big job to tackle on those hot summer afternoons you must admit.All good wishes in 1922.-------(?) William Orpen".The drawing shows Cravath,a large man who stood 6ft 4inches,sat posing while a much smaller Orpen,the heat rising from his head and his sleeves rolled up,paints the portrait.------The book has the bookplate of the prolific author and traveller Cecil Roberts who has written a note on the blank verso of the frontis piece about Cravath and how he commissioned Orpen to paint his portrait,for a sum of £5000 plus expenses.While staying with Cravath at his Regency Long Island home,where the portrait was painted,Orpen gave Cravath this book as a memento.After Cravath died (in 1940) the house,and presumably some of the contents, was bought by Baron Eugene de Rothschild (in 1942) and Roberts notes that he was often his guest there.He doesn't explain how the book came to be his.There is one more note from Roberts,under the portrait of Lord Riddell (plate XLIX) mentioning his being at a press dinner given for him in 1919.---------Aside from being third in charge,and legal advisor,of the American War Mission during the Interallied War Conference of 1917,the first American mission to a European council in history,Paul Cravath is mainly known for his "Cravath System" which transformed the way law firms work and is still in use today. The "Cravath system" included hiring new law school graduates,then training them within the firm as associates,and eventually inviting the best to become partners.Throughout the twentieth century most of the growth of the big law firms relied on this system of recruiting,internal training,and loyalty to the firm.-----A nice self portrait of the Artist at work,all the better for being within a copy of Orpen's fascinating war memoir.:

OBrosch. 24x16 cm.. - KEIN REPRINT! -- unbeschnittenes Exemplar, Ebd. fleckig, Buchrücken beschädigt, S. papierbedingt gebräunt, Klammerung gerostet, Bindung locker. -- Mehmed Talat, bekannt als Talat Bey oder Talat Pascha (* Juli 1872 in Kardschali/Provinz Edirne, heute in Bulgarien; 15. März 1921 in Berlin), war Innenminister und Großwesir des Osmanischen Reichs und Führer der Jungtürken. Talat ordnete als Innenminister am 24. April 1915 die Verhaftung armenischer Intellektueller in Istanbul an, was den Völkermord an der armenischen Bevölkerung im Osmanischen Reich einleitete. Talat entstammte kleinen Verhältnissen und repräsentierte eine soziale Aufsteigerschicht, die mit der Jungtürkischen Revolution von 1908 im Osmanischen Reich an die Macht gelangte. Talat Pascha war Freimaurer und als solcher erster Großmeister der Großloge der Freien und Angenommenen Maurer der Türkei. Er war pomakischer Muslim und entstammte einer Bektaschi-Familie. Talat Pascha lebte vom 10. November 1918 bis zu seinem gewaltsamen Tod unter dem Namen Ali Sai in Berlin. Ein deutsches U-Boot brachte Talat, Enver, Cemal Pascha, Doktor Nazim, Bahaettin S,akir und Cemal Azmi in der Nacht vom 2. auf den 3. November 1918 nach Odessa. Am 15. März 1921 erschoss Soghomon Tehlirian Talat Pascha in der Hardenbergstraße in der Nähe seiner Wohnung. Tehlirian war Mitglied des geheimen armenischen Kommandos Operation Nemesis, das die Täter des Genozids an den Armeniern verfolgte und tötete. Er wurde im folgenden Mord-Prozess vom Vorwurf eines Tötungsdeliktes freigesprochen. Talats sterbliche Überreste wurden am 25. Februar 1943 durch das Hitlerregime unter militärischen Ehrenbezeugungen von Berlin nach Istanbul überführt und dort am Abide-i Hürriyet, dem Denkmal der jungtürkischen Revolution von 1908, beigesetzt.
