        Winston S. Churchill Signed Photograph.

      Signed photograph of Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Black and white full-length photograph of Churchill reclining in a chair at his estate Chartwell, signed in the lower border, "Winston S. Churchill." Chartwell was the country house for over forty years the home of Winston Churchill. Churchill bought the property in September 1922 and lived there until shortly before his death in January 1965. In the thirties, excluded from political office, Chartwell became the center of Churchill's world and "the most important country house in Europe". At his dining table, he gathered friends to support him in his campaigns against German re-armament and the British government's response of appeasement; in his study, he composed his speeches and wrote his books; in his garden, he built walls, constructed lakes and painted. Closed up during the Second World War, the Churchills returned to Chartwell after he lost the 1945 election. In October 1964, he left the house for the last time, dying at his London home on 24 January 1965. The photograph measures 9 inches by 10 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 16 inches by 18 inches. Rare and desirable in such a large format. Winston S. Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. He was also an officer in the British Army, a non-academic historian, a writer and an artist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for his overall, lifetime body of work. In 1963, he was the first of only eight people to be made an honorary citizen of the United States. Churchill was born into the family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, was a politician who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer; his mother, Jennie Jerome, was an American socialite. As a young army officer, he saw action in British India, the Anglo-Sudan War, and the Second Boer War. He gained fame as a war correspondent and wrote books about his campaigns. At the forefront of politics for fifty years, he held many political and cabinet positions. Before the First World War, he served as President of the Board of Trade, Home Secretary, and First Lord of the Admiralty as part of Asquith's Liberal government. During the war, he continued as First Lord of the Admiralty until the Gallipoli Campaign caused his departure from government. He then briefly resumed active army service on the Western Front as commander of the 6th Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers. He returned to government under Lloyd George as Minister of Munitions, Secretary of State for War, Secretary of State for Air, then Secretary of State for the Colonies. After two years out of Parliament, he served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in Baldwin's Conservative government of 1924-1929, controversially returning the pound sterling in 1925 to the gold standard at its pre-war parity, a move widely seen as creating deflationary pressure on the UK economy. Out of office and politically "in the wilderness" during the 1930s because of his opposition to increased home rule for India and his resistance to the 1936 abdication of Edward VIII, Churchill took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on 10 May 1940, Churchill became Prime Minister. His speeches and radio broadcasts helped inspire British resistance, especially during the difficult days of 1940-41 when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood almost alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler. He led Britain as Prime Minister until victory over Nazi Germany had been secured. After the Conservative Party suffered an unexpected defeat in the 1945 general election, he became Leader of the Opposition to the Labour Government. He publicly warned of an "Iron Curtain" of Soviet influence in Europe and promoted European unity. After winning the 1951 election, Churchill again became Prime Minister. His second term was preoccupied by foreign affairs, including the Malayan Emergency, Mau Mau Uprising, Korean War, and a UK-backed coup d'?tat in Iran. Domestically his government laid great emphasis on house-building. Churchill suffered a serious stroke in 1953 and retired as Prime Minister in 1955, although he remained a Member of Parliament until 1964. Upon his death aged ninety in 1965, Elizabeth II granted him the honor of a state funeral, which saw one of the largest assemblies of world statesmen in history.

        Later Poems [together with] Plays in Prose and Verse.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1922. Two works, octavo. Original green cloth, titles gilt to spines, blind panelling designed by Ricketts to front boards, unicorn design to pastedowns. Spines faded, cloth somewhat mottled and stained, very light rubbing to some extremities, internally fresh and uncut, a very good set in spite of the unfortunate marking. First editions, first impression, both titles inscribed by the author on the front free endpapers, "S. D. Green from W B Yeats Oct 16 1928". These UK editions precede the Macmillan's US editions by two years, and are very scarce inscribed. These two collections bring together very nicely the poetry from the middle of Yeats's career (from The Wind Among the Reeds, 1899, to Michael Robartes and the Dancer, 1921) and his Abbey Theatre plays. Intriguingly, Yeats had already inscribed these same two volumes in the year of publication to another recipient - the inscriptions, above those to Green, are scribbled out but still legible, "Mrs Woodmass from W B Yeats Nov 16 1922". Edith Woodmass was his wife George's grandmother, who died in 1927. This would explain the reinscription of these copies, which have nonetheless been together since the date of publication.

        Washington and the Riddle of Peace.

      The Macmillan Company, New York 1922 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine. Boldly signed by H.G. Wells on the half-title page. In fine condition. Scarce and desirable signed. In the wake of World War I, the victor nations came together to shape the postwar era. and in doing so, laid the ground for the next great war. That was already obvious in 1921, when H. G. Wells gathered in one volume his essays for the New York World, the Chicago Tribune, and other American and European newspapers written in reaction to what he saw and heard at the Washington Conference to organize the peace. Though known, along with Jules Verne, as one of the 19th-century fathers of science fiction, here Wells explores more down-to-earth issues, from the "problem" of Russia and Japan-and how little could hope to be accomplished at this conference without their participation-to the "economic decadence" of the world and how to arrest it. Wells' intriguing foresight shines through, making this a fascinating document of the international disaster of the World Wars. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

In his preface to the book Rupert D'Oyly Carte writes "There have been many who have made great reputations in the Gilbert and Sullivan characters and have established themselves as favourites with the public who love and follow the operas, and when the roll comes to be written down finally, if ever it is, Henry Lytton undoubtedly will be assigned a foremost place. He has played a wide variety of the parts, and the scope and versatility of his work is unique. It is unlikely that his record as a Gilbert and Sullivan artiste will ever be surpassed."

        Kim.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1922. First edition, later printing of what many consider Kipling's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth, embossed black and gilt to the front panel, gilt titles to the spine, illustrated. Signed by Rudyard Kipling on the title page. In near fine condition with light rubbing to the extremities. Kim unfolds against the backdrop of The Great Game, the political conflict between Russia and Britain in Central Asia. The novel made the term "Great Game" popular and introduced the theme of great power rivalry and intrigue. It is set after the Second Afghan War which ended in 1881, but before the Third, probably in the period 1893 to 1898. The novel is notable for its detailed portrait of the people, culture, and varied religions of India. "The book presents a vivid picture of India, its teeming populations, religions, and superstitions, and the life of the bazaars and the road." Considered by many to be Kipling's masterpiece, opinion appears varied about its consideration as children's literature or not. Roger Sale, in his history of children's literature, concludes "Kim is the apotheosis of the Victorian cult of childhood, but it shines now as bright as ever, long after the Empire's collapse." Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003 the book was listed on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel."

        The Rescue.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page and Company, 1922. First edition, early printing of this later Conrad work. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt stamped to the front panel, gilt titles to the spine, frontispiece. Boldly inscribed by Joseph Conrad on the front free endpaper. In near fine condition with light rubbing to the extremities. Conrad's The Rescue was one of the last novels to be published before his death four years later. It is now sometimes called the 'Lingard Trilogy', a group of novels based on Conrad's experience as mate on the steamer Vidar. Although it was the last of the three novels to be published, after Almayer's Folly (1895) and An Outcast of the Islands (1896), the events related in the novel precede those. The story follows Captain Tom Lingard, the recurring protagonist of The Lingard Trilogy, who was on his way to help a native friend regain his land when he falls in love with a married woman whose yacht he saves from foundering.

        The White Feather

      A C Black 1922 - You may well look at this listing and think I have gone mad which is half true . As with every author some titles are rare and that is the case here. This is the first full wrapper that I am aware of and the first one I have seen .The wrapper has three creases where it has been folded and placed in the book and there have been two small chip restorations on the spine .I think the print run would have been 500.This wrapper is identical to the US Macmillan first except for the 2/6 on the back panel and A C Black is replaced by Macmillan. For those of you who have a copy of Mcilvaine youll see that the image listed under the scans is probably the rarest Wodehouse item that has survived as its the 1907 Macmillan true first . I think there were about 200 sets of sheets sent to the States to establish copyright and I doubt very much that there was a wrapper and if there was it would almost certainly have been the Black edition.

        Europa : ein Zyklus von 14 Steinzeichnungen

      München : Georg Müller, [1922]. Edition limited to 300 hand-numbered examples (this is no. 17). Portfolio, large square folio, original printed papered boards (bowed, foxed and with some staining); the preliminaries comprise two loose double sheets (lightly creased and foxed): pp [1 title], [1 blank], [1 contents], [1 colophon], [2 blank], [2 intoductory text]; followed by [14] loose lithographs, each 315 x 420 mm (sheets 460 x 540 mm), all signed by the artist in pencil beneath the image, original owner's pencilled titles in French to the upper margins; most of the lithographs with minor water staining along left edge of sheet (nos. 13 and 14 with heavier staining; nos. 1 and 14 with short edge tears); complete. Theo Scharf (1899-1987) was born in Melbourne, the son of a German-born concert pianist and an Australian mother. In 1911 Violet Teague painted his portrait (Boy with a palette), at a time when he was a young prodigy and his artistic work was being recognised by Teague, McCubbin and others. Before leaving for Germany in 1914 he held a highly successful exhibition in Melbourne. In Germany Scharf based himself in Munich. Two of his best known works date from the early Weimar period. They are his series of lithographs, Europa (1922), of which the Australian War Memorial holds the only complete portfolio in Australian collections; and a series of etchings titled Night in a city, which were published the following year. The latter featured in an exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (April-May 2006). In the 1930s Scharf contributed to several newspapers and journals produced by the Nazi Party, and during the Second World War he enlisted as an official German 'combat artist'. After the war Scharf returned to Melbourne and worked as an art teacher for several years during the 1950s, before spending the last period of his life in Munich. "Europa comprises fourteen 'lithographic designs' numbered in the following order: Das schlafende Asien (Sleeping Asia), Tyrannei (Tyranny), Revolution, Napoleon, Industrialismus (Industrialism), Entgötterung (Turning from God), Demagogie (Demagogy), Japan, Kapitalismus (Capitalism), Krieg (War), Proletariat, Asiens Entflammung (Asia aflame), Zivilisation (Civilisation), Das Ende (The end). The portfolio was released in an edition of 300 and produced in the spring of 1922 at the Dr C Wolf & Sohn printing office in Munich for Georg Müller Verlag. Scharf's imagery is uncompromising and portentous as he lashed out against the madness and greed which had brought Europe close to collapse as a result of rapacious warmongering. Industrialism, with its pollution and exploitation of the proletariat, is featured in many of these images: soaring chimneys spewing smoke and 'demonic steam' and workers bent slavishly over their task at hand; civilisation is seen as an overcrowded metropolis, the seething mass of humanity is crowded into the factories and offices, pressing the heaving streets of the cities. It is an apocalyptic vision, denying the celebration of modernity espoused by the Futurist artists, and presaging the carnage and horrors of the war yet to come." (Natalie Wilson, in Theo Scharf : Night in a city, AGNSW, 2006, p.35)
