        The World Crisis.

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd.,, 1923?31. [Vol. I: 1911?1914; Vol. II: 1915; Vol. III?IV: 1916?1918; Vol. V: The Aftermath; Vol. VI: The Eastern Front.] 5 volumes in 6, octavo (223 x 150 mm). Finely bound by Maltby's of Oxford in mid-20th-century red half morocco, twin blue-green morocco labels, raised bands with dotted rule gilt, compartments panelled in gilt, red cloth sides, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Illustrated throughout with maps and charts (many folding). Volume I with different endpapers to other volumes. The occasional spot to contents. A handsomely bound set in excellent condition. First editions, first impressions. Working with astonishing speed and energy, Churchill produced this mammoth history of the First World War in the aftermath of electoral defeat. The work deals with his reorganization of the Royal Navy in the years leading up to the War, defends his Gallipoli policy, and criticises Haig's strategy. "Although parts of The World Crisis were highly autobiographical, drawing on documents from Churchill's private papers, the book as a whole was a stupendous narrative of the war in Europe featuring masterly set-piece accounts of major battles. Dictated to secretaries as he strode up and down the room, it exhibited his passionate interest in war and his romantic conception of the 'true glory' of the troops who perished on the Somme" (ODNB). In aim and method, it foreshadows his Second World War: together they form the single most important and authoritative grand narrative of the conflicts of the twentieth century.

        Im Café. Lithographie.

       1923. Signiert \"Rudolf Schlichter\". Druck auf Bütten. 40,4 x 30,8 cm (blattgroß). Söhn HDO 72716-7. Eines von 25 Exemplaren. Blatt 7 der Vorzugsausgabe von: Die Schaffenden, IV. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1923. Erschienen im Euphorion Verlag, Berlin. - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Das Blatt ist insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. An der oberen Blattkante ist ein sehr schmaler Streifen wenig gebräunt. Der Unterrand ist teilweise minimal wellig.

        The Fleuron Complete Set of the Deluxe Editions

      London and Cambridge: Curwen Press and Cambridge University Press, 1923-1930. Hardcover. Very Good +. A complete run of arguably the greatest English typographical and fine press journal, all deluxe edition copies, all on Batchelor Kelmscott handmade paper. The paper in these deluxe editions is wonderful, all volumes here completely free of foxing. This is a very fresh set in cloth bindings that have some wear (see description). Volumes 1-4 were edited by Oliver Simon, volumes 5-7 by Stanley Morison. This set has been carefully collated: absolutely every extra and insert is present, including the signed works by Eric Gill and David Jones (both true fine). Volume 1: deluxe edition printed on Kelmscott handmade paper, with all the extras, original series prospectus laid in (worn), errata slip, no dustjacket as issued. Black buckram cloth binding is VG-: worn with splits in the upper gutters, small chips, spine a little wobbly but solidly attached, still pleasant to use, titles clear. Contents are excellent: TEG, others untrimmed. First five leaves have a single tiny dot of glue or something organic in the margin, only notable because the contents of this (and all the volumes) are completely without foxing, very fresh. Volume Two: small chip to top of spine, a little wear to the bottom edge of spine, otherwise solidly VG, nice tight binding, full black cloth. TEG, other untrimmed, no dustjacket as issued. Contents completely fresh and clean: very small PO bookplate on inside blank, no foxing, just beautiful paper. All extras and paper samples present. A single sample of Rizzi paper is loose from its mount but still fine. Volume 3 binding tight, nice solid VG+ (little wear to the bottom yapped edge of spine), small PO book plate and the remnants of another (which could probably be completely removed), no dustjacket as issued. Contents fresh, again no foxing. There is a lovely gravure photograph of Updike and print samples that include a Paul Nash extra from Genesis. Volume 4: binding tight, couple of minor scuffs, solid VG+, small PO bookplate, no dustjacket as issued. Contents lovely, all extras present. Volume 5: Binding strong VG+, contents near fine, all extras present, including the 12 page insert Eulogy of Pierre Simon Fournier le Jeune. DJ is a solid VG. This is the first volume edited by Morison, with patterned endpapers and substantially more extras than in the first four volumes. There are no bookplates or signs of previous ownership. Printed on Batchelor Kelmscott handmade paper, which is still white and gorgeous. Volume 6: The Fleuron started to escalate with volume 5 and became really over-the-top with Volume 6. Here the extras include a sample from David Jones' rare Aesops Fables, signed by Jones. Again, the edition is on handmade paper, no foxing at all, contents uniformly fresh. Binding is a strong VG: bottom front corner bump resulting in cloth splitting on the bottom edge, does not affect contents, spine looks sharp, binding tight, no DJ (as I recall, the DJ merely repeats the cloth pattern). Patterned endpapers, no bookplates. All extras (and there are many) present. Volume 7 (1930): The Fleuron's largest and most extravagant number: binding strong VG: spine faded to a neat brown, spine titles still nice and sharp, small bookplate on plain front pastedown, lacking the plain brown DJ. The extras include Eric Gill's Passion of Perpetua and Felicity insert (32 pages, wood engravings, signed by Gill). This deluxe edition is again on handmade paper and is signed by Stanley Morison. This volume includes the first printing of Morison's classic essay, "First Principles of Typography," an essay by Jan Van Krimpen on typography in Holland, and specimen pages from Officina Bodoni. The combination of scholarship and skill on display in these volumes is second to none. As a set, this is one of the great fine press achievements of the twentieth century. Note that all volumes are preserved in custom slipcases that are hard cardboard with flueron designs on the top boards. These are amateur slipcases but they've done a fine job of protecting the deckled edges from soiling. Also included is a VG copy of the later Flueron anthologiy in DJ, also housed in a matching slipcase.

        The Faerie Queene Disposed into Twelve Bookes Fashioning XII Morall Vertues [WITH] Spenser's Minor Poems

      The Ashendene Press (1923 / 1925), [Chelsea] - Limited editions, with the Faerie Queene being one of 180 printed on paper (there were also 12 printed on vellum) and the Minor Poems being one of 200 printed on paper (with an additional 15 being printed on vellum). The two volumes were designed to be companion volumes as St. John Hornby noted in his bibliography; they were printed and bound in a similar manner, and this set comes with a custom slipcase to house both volumes. Many have noted the plea he made opposite the colophon page in the Faerie Queene to future binders not to crop the edges; he had designed a "book beautiful" and wished it not to be desecrated. The volumes are indeed lovely, printed in double columns with a liberal use of red and blue ink, with large intials designed by Graily Hewitt in red and blue; in the Minor Poems there is a larger use of blue than in any of the other books. ***DESCRIPTION: The two volumes bound uniformly, with the binding stamp of "WHS" on the turn-in of the back board in the Faerie Queene, quarter bound in brown cowhide with gilt lettering on the spines, ivory vellum sides over thick boards, red and blue ink used throughout as referenced above, text pages in double columns, type Subiaco on Batchelor paper bearing the Knight in Armour water-mark; elephant folio size (almost 17" tall), pagination: Faerie Queene, (i-viii), 1-406, colophon (407); Minor Poems (i-iv), (1)-216 with colophon on final page. Both volumes are housed in a custom slipcase with a brown leather spine and white paper sides, with a black leather spine label with gilt lettering; there is an inner slipcase covered in brown cloth, divided, with each compartment having a folder of brown cloth on the outside, lined with velvet inside, into which the two volumes fit and are protected. ***CONDITION: Both volumes near fine, the brown leather spines remain deep in colour, the vellum boards are of a natural dark shade; internally both volumes have strong, square text blocks, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interiors are clean and bright, and they are entirely free of prior owner markings; there is one shallow scratch mark to the back board of Faerie Queene and both volumes have light foxing to the preliminary and final blank leaves as well as to the text block edges, both have some offsetting to the free endpapers from the leather spines, and the front free endpapers of both volumes have some darkening near the top and bottom edges. The custom slipcase is near fine with some faint soiling to one side, the inner box and two folders are fine. ***CITATION: Hornby 32 and 35. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this set is extremely large and heavy, and depending on destination some additional postage may apply; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photo Album]: Boys Brigade

      Washington DC, New York, Pennsylvania. 1923-1932. Oblong quarto. Measuring 7" x 11". String-tied red leather over paper boards with "School Day Treasures" stamped on the front cover. Contains 88 sepia toned gelatin silver and some black and white photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 2.5" x 4", most with captions. Very good album with some creasing, tears, and edgewear with near fine photographs.A boy's album kept between 1923 and 1932 during various events and schooling. The album begins in 1923 when the album owner attended a Citizens Military Training Camp. The photos show young boys in tents and "dress uniforms" performing "fatigue drills" and showing the boys standing in a line awaiting orders. From there it switches to a 1927 trip to Washington DC where they spent the summer at Fort Washington U.S. Military Training Camp. When off duty they saw the DC highlights such as the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building and even toured the District from the air in a plane. His college days are captured throughout, because of his job as an usher at the Carnegie Music Hall it is likely he attended Carnegie Mellon University in 1929. During the summer of 1929 he worked at a hotel in Lilydale, New York where he spent "most of [his] spare time in this canoe." These photos show pretty girls posing in bathing suits, boys working at the boathouse, and performing handstands on the beach. In 1931 he lived on Pelug's Farm at a campsite - he includes a hand-drawn diagram of the grounds later in the album. It isn't clear if he was working there but it seems probable. He took photos of his friends posing around the farm, animal life, and people swimming in the "ye olde swimming hole."An interesting collection of a young man's youth from childhood to young manhood, exhibiting his ties to the military and his early jobs. .

Hardcover cloth now protected with a clearcover.; First monograph on Ming wares.; "The purpose of this book is to explain and illustrate as many varieties of Ming as possible. The text is based primarily on information obtained from Chinese sources and the occasional notes made by Europeans who visited China in the Ming period. To this must be added the deductions which can be made from the study of well-authenticated specimens, and, of course, the valuable work enshrined in the books which are mentioned in the bibliography. The first twelve chapters are occupied almost exclusively by the porcelain of Ching-tê Chên; the next four by the porcelain and pottery made at other centres. For the convenience of printing, all the Chinese characters have been collected together in the final chapter, to which reference is made in each case." excerpt from the preface by R.L. Hobson, January 1923..

        Carteggio di pittori e scultori operanti tra la fine dell'800 e gli inizi del '900

      con Enrico Emilio Ximenes (1857-1923), storico e letterato responsabile del Museo dei Mille di Bologna, già direttore del giornale demoratico palermitano «Il Vespro», fervente garibaldino. Sono 15 autografi di 9 artisti che presentiamo come lotto: - a) BAZZARO, Ernesto (1859-1937), scultore, autore di numerosi marmi nel Cimitero di Milano e di monumenti pubblici. L.a.f., 1 p. in-4, Milano, 9 luglio 1908. Spiacente «che il gesso del monumento a F. Nullo in Bergamo donato al Comitato, sfortunatamente nel trasportarlo colà andò tutto in frantumi, per modo che non esiste più». b) BOITO, Camillo (1836-1914), architetto e scrittore, fratello di Arrigo. Bigl. con linee a.f., Milano, 30 aprile 1909: «Ringrazio ma non mi lascio più mettere in Comitati onorari. Devo quindi rinunciare ad entrare in quello dell'Esposizione donatelliana». c) BUTTI, Enrico (1847-1932), scultore in una prima fase impressionista, influenzato dai modi di C. Grandi e T. Cremona, successivamente di impronta verista («Il minatore», 1887). Insegnò all'Accademia di Brera. L. datt. f., 1 p. in-8, Milano, 4 maggio 1909. «. mi duole dichiarare (al Comitato donatelliano) che le mie occupazioni sono tali da non ptere assicurare per eventuali bisogni dell'opera mia. ». d) CALZOLARI, Oreste. L.a.f., 1 p. in-4, 2 luglio 1906: «Il bozzetto del monumento inaugurato a Fiesole .è molto piccolo (1/25 del vero) e dal monumento alquanto diverso. Se queste cose non sono di ostacolo, sarò lietissimo di donarlo per il Museo dei Mille. ». (Unitamente a:) L.a.f., 1 p. in-8,13 settembre (1)908. «Anche per la mia qualità di garibaldino, gradirò intervenire all'inaugurazione del Museo (di Bologna)». e) CASCIARO, Giuseppe (1863-1949), pittore, partecipò a importanti esposizioni internazionali [Parigi, Bruxelles, Monaco (1905)]. Due lettere autografe che peccano di immodestia: L.a.f., 4 pp. in-8, Napoli Antignano 16 giugno 1910: «. appunto perché sono maestro di pittura di S. M. la nostra Regina e di S. A. R. Vera di Montenegro» per accettare l'invito alla mostra collettiva all'Esposizione di Cettigne « vorrei sottoporle alcune condizioni: una sala riservata solo a me decentemente decorata; spese di trasporto delle opere a carico del Comitato; che mi siano conferiti i massimi premi : . data la mia posizione che la nostra Corte stessa mi ha creato, non credo di essere troppo esigente». L.a.f., 3 pp. in-8, Ischia, 10 agosto 1910. Ancora a proposito della Esposizione a Cettigne: «. raccomando l'addobbo decoroso della sala mia che dovrà raccogliere solo i miei pastelli . Data la mia posizione di maestro di S. M. la nostra Regina e di S. A. R. la Principessa Vera, io dovrò emergere su tutti. So che voi siete magna pars». f) JERACE, Francesco (1854-1936), scultore di solida formazione, oscillò tra accademismo e realismo estremo. Noti i suoi busti femminili. 2 cart. ill.f. e 2 lett. a.f. (di cui una del 17 ottobre 1909) di saluti e auguri in riferimento ad opere del Museo dei Mille di Bologna. «Non mi sono dimenticato del gesso che vi promisi. ». g) MATANIA, Fortunino (1881-1963), illustratore e pittore, collaborò a riviste italiane e straniere («L'Illustrazione Italiana», « The Graphic», « The Sphere»). L.a.f., 2 pp. in-8, list, lutto. 18 dicembre 1909. Sulla quarta schizzo a penna di (auto?)ritratto. «Mi giunge un biglietto firmato E. Ximenes, ora, tra gli E. Ximenes ve n 'è uno Eduardo, il quale ha mostrato di essere il peggiore dei nemici e dei denigratori miei e della mia famiglia. Stante la cosa a questo punto non si troverà strano che, almeno per salvare la forma, io desideri di sapere prima d'aver l'onore di un incontro chi è degli E. Ximenes che mi scrive e che cosa si possa desiderare da me». h) NOMELLINI, Plinio (1866-1943), pittore, allievo di G. Fattori, amico di G. Pascoli e di G. Puccini. Dopo un esordio macchiaiolo, si volse a esperienze simboliste e divisioniste. 2 cart. post, f. a) Viareggio, 21.12.09 «. stringiamo dunque l'affare. Il quadro col bambino nudo dal titolo: Baci di sole L. mille. L'altro col titolo La siesta L. 800.»: b) Viareggio 27.1.X (1910) «Pregola farmi sapere perché la cassa mia di ritorno sia gravata di L. 24 da sborsare per ritirarla. La cifra mi sembra enorme». i) ZOCCHI, Arnaldo (1862-1940), scultore [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        War Memorial.

      Small 8vo., original heavy grey wrappers. With front cover and title-page illustration from a wood engraving by David Jones and a single wood engraving by Gill. The engraving is a preliminary study for Gill's relief sculpture entitled "Christ and the Money-Changers" and was the image used for the War Memorial Gill designed for Leeds College.. Wrappers slightly browned otherwise a very good copy. First edition. This pamphlet is Gill's explanation of the work, in which he "commemorates the most just of all wars -- the war of Justice against Cupidity." With the bookplate of Michael Gerveys Sewell. Michael Gerveys Sewell, later Father Brocard Sewell, left school at 16 and found work as a general factotum in the London Office of ?GK?s Weekly?, the paper founded by GK Chesterton. Here he met writers, thinkers and artists. Among the many were, the printer and writer Hilary Pepler, a Quaker who converted to Roman Catholicism, Henry Williamson, the writer of Tarka the Otter and more controversial books, and Arthur Machen, a ?black-arts? writer. After he left GK?s he went to join the Eric Gill?s artistic community at Ditchling in Sussex. In that Catholic community he found an emotional haven and professional direction, and stayed for five years working as a compositor.

        Liebesunterhaltung. Lithographie.

      1923 - Signiert "Rudolf Schlichter". Druck auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen "Bergisch Gladbach". Söhn HDO 72716-8. Eines von 25 Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe. Blatt 8 aus: Die Schaffenden. IV. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1923. Erschienen im Euphorion Verlag, Berlin. - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Das Blatt ist insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. Es ist nur ganz minimal gebäunt, an der unteren rechten Ecke ein klein wenig stärker. Die obere Blattkante hat eine ganz minimale Knickspur.
