      Richmond: Printed and Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press,, 1921. Small quarto. Original hand-printed marbled blue, black and green "wallpaper" wrappers, white paper title label to upper wrapper printed in black. Housed in a blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. 12 cuts printed directly from the blocks. Some typical rubbing and wear to the wrappers, especially at the spine but a very decent copy and uncommon thus. First edition, first impression. One of just 150 copies hand-printed by the Woolfs. One of the early triumphs of the press and very scarce indeed. The wrappers are constructed from wallpaper and even more fragile in this format than when found on the smaller hand-printed Hogarth pamphlets such as Eliot's Poems and Woolf's own Kew Gardens. With the ghost of a removed bookplate to the inside of the front wrapper identifying the copy to have belonged to Angelica Garnett (nee Bell), daughter of Vanessa and Clive Bell.

        China Sea. North Coast of Formosa (Taiwan) Kiirun Ko (Keelung Harbour) From the Japanese Government Plans of 1919.

      Published at the Admiralty, New Edition 11th April, 1921. Small corrections to 1923., London, - Admiralty chart of northern Taiwan 710 by 1040mm. (28 by 41 inches). Engraved chart, including tidal information, compass roses, soundings, seabed notations, currents, sandbanks, shoals, lighthouses and beacons picked out in yellow and red, inland elevations, detailing, and buildings. Detailed chart of the Keelung Port on the north coast of Taiwan.Taiwan at the time of the chart's publication was under the control of the Japanese, who in 1895 had gained control of the island from the Chinese after the First Sino-Japanses War. Under the adminstration of the Japanese Keelung became one of the major trading ports in Taiwan. Although heavily bombed during the Second World War, the port today is one of the busiest container ports in the world.The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. The first charts were produced in 1800. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. In fact, such was their accuracy that the phrase 'Safe as an Admiralty Chart' was coined.

        Sporting Recollections. The corrected typescript of this unpublished book, consisting of chapters on Pheasant, Duck and Quail shooting, and one, "Hits and Misses" concerning the mechanics of successful shooting; with a rejection letter from Henry Holt and Co. All contained in the original mailing envelope

      n.p., n.d.. The typescript consists of 42 pages with numerous pencil corrections, including, on two pages, the printed article on Quail as it originally appeared in the August 1921 issue of Field and Stream. On 11 x 8 1/2 inch pages, some fraying to a few margins, else fine. From the Estate of Eugene V. Connett, III, proprietor of The Derrydale Press . As with most of Connett's books, this is a collection of articles written for magazines, in this instance some highly personalized accounts of the author's shooting experiences--the exception being "Hits and Misses", a more objective account of the mechanics of shooting: developing a smooth swing, knowing when a bird is in range, etc. (The typescript of this bears Connett's pencilled notation, "Sold 1947 to F & S [Field and Stream] but not published"). Connett, then at the publishing firm of Van Nostrand, submitted "Sporting Recollections" to Henry Holt and Company, and on February 4, 1960 it was returned: "We do not feel that we would have sufficient sales success with the work to warrant our taking it on". It is not improbable that the rather short length of the book, together with Connett's strong personalized style, was a factor in this decision; at any rate, the book did not appear in print--which, as the owner of this typescript will quickly discover, was a considerable loss to the literature of sport.

Scarce. Presentation Copy, inscribed by the author on the title-page: "Edgar Jepson from F.M.F. 8/4/21" Harvey A51 Harvey explains that this may have been preceded by an appearance in Poetry of Chicago, but seems rather to doubt it. In a letter to Jepson of 8 November 1921 Ford wrote that he was awarded the Poetry of Chicago prize for best poem of the year which pleased him "as the first public recognition [he] ever received - except from the Inst. de France, & that hadn’t any [dollars] attached".

        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.:

      Berlin: Deutsche Verlagsgesellschaft f. Politik u. Geschichte 1921.. 1.-5. Tsd. XI, 136 S. 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.
