        World Crisis

      1923 - CHURCHILL, Winston. The World Crisis. London: Thornton Butterworth, (1923-31). Six volumes. Octavo, original navy cloth. Housed together in a custom slipcase. $6000.First English editions of Churchill’s important history of World War I. “Not only the best account of the most tremendous convulsion the world has ever seen, but one of the most brilliant treatises on war that has ever been written” (Spectator).During WWI, Churchill served variously as the head of the British Navy, Minister for Munitions, and as a foot soldier in the trenches. The World Crisis offers his first-hand account of the British government's massive efforts to win the war, and depicts the political events that would serve as object lessons for Churchill when WWII broke out. Illustrated with numerous maps (many folding), charts, facsimiles, photographs, and a large folding colored map at rear of last volume. Preceded by the American editions, although "the English is more aesthetically desirable… equipped with shoulder notes on each page which summarize the subject of that page… It is more popular among collectors who wish to own only one edition" (Langworth, 108). Each volume was issued separately. With errata slips in Volumes III-V, but without errata slip in Volume I. Without scarce dust jackets. Cohen A69.2. Woods A31(a). Langworth, 105-108.

        The Works of Herman Melville.

      London: Constable and Company, 1923-24. The Complete Works of Herman Melville. Octavo, 16 volumes bound in three quarters blue morocco, raised bands, gilt titles and tooling to the spine. The Standard edition, limited to 750 numbered sets and includes the first printing of Billy Budd, in volume 13. Volume 16 includes the first appearance of a number of Herman Melville's poems. In very good to near fine condition with a few volumes rebacked. An attractive set. Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, and poet from the American Renaissance period. Most of his writings were published between 1846 and 1857 and is best known for his sea adventure Typee (1846) and his whaling novel Moby-Dick (1851), he was almost forgotten during the last thirty years of his life. His writing draws on his experience at sea as a sailor, exploration of literature and philosophy, and engagement in the contradictions of American society in a period of rapid change. The main characteristic of his style is probably pervasive allusion, reflecting his written sources. Melville's way of adapting what he read for his own new purposes, scholar Stanley T. Williams wrote, "was a transforming power comparable to Shakespeare's."

      0 - Ausgabe B II. - 16 Aquarelle, einzeln eingelegt in Orig.-Büttenmappe. Durch Beschluß des Amtsgerichts Charlottenburg vom 25. April 1923 ist das Werk "Ecce Homo" von George Grosz beschlagnahmt worden. "Von den Abbildungen des Werkes sind die Nummern III, IV, V, VI, XI, XII u. XV durch die Art ihrer Darstellung, insbesondere die Betonung des Geschlechtlichen, in erster Linie die Hervorhebung der Geschlechtsteile, geeignet, das Scham- u. Sittlichkeitsgefühl eines normal empfindenden Menschen zu verletzen". Trotz eines Gutachtens von Max Liebermann und so renommierter Sachverständiger wie Edwin Redslob, Maximilian Harden und Max Osborn wurde Grosz verurteilt und die Blätter mußten aus der Mappe entfernt werden. Ist die Ausgabe B II ohnehin schon selten genug, so liegt sie hier vollständig mit allen 16 Tafeln vor. Sehr schönes Exemplar. - Malik 59. - Dückers S I, I-XVI.

        The World Crisis, full set of six British first edition, first printings, with a pre-publication inscription to a close associate and friend in the third book

      Thornton Butterworth Limited, London 1923 - This is a full set of six British first edition, first printings of Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, inscribed and dated in the third book by Churchill (two days before publication) to his "oldest friend" Jack Seely. Inked on the ffep of 1916-1918 Part I in four lines is "Jack Seely / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1.3.27". John Edward Bernard Seely (1868-1947), 1st Baron Mottistone CB, CMG, DSO, PC, TD, was Churchill's close friend, comrade in arms, and political ally for nearly half a century. His life and career remarkably parallel and entwine Churchill's, with a particularly strong bond during the First World War, both in politics and on the Front. As boys, Seely and Churchill both attended Harrow. Both earned distinction in the Boer War and parlayed war records into election to Parliament in the "Khaki election" of 1900. Churchill and Seely quickly became political allies and confidantes. Both left the Conservative party, becoming Liberals in 1904. Both joined the Liberal Government Cabinet in 1908. In 1911 Churchill became First Lord of the Admiralty and in 1912 Seely became Secretary of State for War. Both were forced out of the Cabinet - Seely for the Curragh Incident in 1914 and Churchill for the Dardanelles in 1915 - and both subsequently chose to serve on the Front. While on active service in Europe, the two friends arranged to see one another often and continued to correspond throughout the war. In 1916, Churchill wrote to Seely "Good luck to you my dear - count on me if the moment comes when I am worth anything again." Churchill was the first to be politically rehabilitated, returning to the Cabinet as Minister of Munitions in 1917. Seely would write from Flanders "I am so glad, not only for your sake who at last have an outlet for energies and talents, but even more for all of us who want so badly just what you can give." While Seely continued to serve with gallant distinction, Churchill faithfully advocated for a Ministerial appointment for him. In 1918, after retiring from active military service, Seely campaigned for Churchill in Dundee. When Churchill became Secretary of State for Air and War in 1919, he brought in Seely as Under-Secretary for Air. Though Seely chafed at his failure to secure his own ministry and ultimately resigned in frustration, the friendship endured. Churchill wrote to Seely "I did whatever was in my power wh sincere & old friendship suggested to assist yr return from the military to the political arena. Had greater offices been in my sphere of influence, I wd have found one for you." In 1924, both Seely and Churchill rejoined the Conservative Party. In 1927, when this book was inscribed, Churchill was Chancellor of the Exchequer and Seely Chairman of the National Savings Commission (a post he held from 1926-1943). Two years later, Churchill wrote to Stanley Baldwin urging that Seely be given a peerage; Seely was created Baron Mottistone in 1933. The inscribed 1916-1918 Part I book is in near-fine condition. The binding is square, clean, and tight, with only very light shelf wear and minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The contents are bright and crisp. Spotting is mostly confined to the prelims and page edges, of course including the inscribed ffep. Nonetheless, the inscription is excellent, with no age-spreading or smudging of the ink. The remaining five volumes make this a very nice set indeed with superior spine presentation. The bindings are uniformly clean with bright gilt and only light shelf wear, mostly confined to extremities. The contents are uniformly clean and tight. Light spotting is confined to text block edges and the prelims of two volumes. The Eastern Front and The Aftermath both have a single neat previous owner name inked on the ffep. The 1911-1914 volume bears an inked inscription on the ffep dated 4 May 1923. We find no other ownership marks.

        Outing: The Gentlemen's Magazine of Sport, Travel and Outdoor Life: 68 Bound Volumes (1886-1923)

      The Outing Company, New York 1923 - Magazine. 68 bound volumes (most with the original wrappers bound in), and seven loose issues in wrappers. A consecutive run of monthly issues from April 1886 - April 1923. *Outing* (along with *Forest and Stream*), was a leading magazine of outdoor sporting literature and activities in the United States. It featured the nature writing of John Burroughs and others, and a range of fiction and nonfiction treating all manner of traditional activities (hunting, fishing, camping, yachting, etc.) as well as new and emerging sports and technologies such as baseball, football, photography, automobiles, and aviation. It also featured many regional photographic surveys, such as Horace Kephart's famous "The Southern Highlander" series, Clifton Johnson's "The Cotton Pickers," and "Mark Twain's Country," and Sumner Matteson's "Red Man and White Man in Colorado's Game Fields" which included some of the earliest photographs of the changing American West. Other notable contributions are Walter Camp's articles on football (including many illustrated with photographs), and Jack London's five-part story: "White Fang" (which provoked a famous dispute with John Burroughs and Theodore Roosevelt on the 'true nature' of nature writing). The magazine is also important for publishing the early work of some of America's best illustrators: Frederic Remington, N.C. Wyeth, Maxfied Parrish, and others.The first 63 volumes from 1886-1917 are small quartos; followed by 5 small folios (containing monthly issues October 1917-September 1922), and seven issues from October 1922-April 1923 loose in wrappers. An ex-library set with most volumes bound in full buckram or quarter linen and dark blue cloth (five early quarto volumes are in contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards); with bookplates, ink stamps, pockets, and some volumes also with scattered perforated stamps on the title pages and plates. The five volumes in half calf are worn, with the boards detached; many early volumes with some scattered loose or detached pages, and a few with missing or torn pages. Overall a fair or better set. Still a nice assemblage of American nature writing and sporting literature in a scarce long run. A list of notable first-appearance contributions is available.

        Alpenlandschaft mit Hütte.

      O. O., 1923. - Aquarellierte blaue Schreibtusche auf Konstruktionszeichenkarton. 360:235 mm. Unten rechts signiert und datiert "R. Höss. 1923." Mit feiner Schreibfeder ausgeführte, nicht ungeschickte Tintenzeichnung einer von kahlen Bäumen umstandenen einsamen Holzhütte am tief verschneiten Hang, im Hintergrund Berge. Einzig die Hütte und der Zaun sind in hellbrauner Farbe ankoloriert, die übrige Schneelandschaft ist anscheinend mit der unterschiedlich verdünnten blauen Schreibtinte laviert; der Himmel mit stark verdünntem Braun minimal angetönt. Auf der Rückseite beschnittene Reste einer kolorierten geologischen Querschnittszeichnung aus der Baustoffindustrie. - Wohl einziges bekanntes Dokument einer künstlerischen Neigung des Kommandanten von Auschwitz, zu dessen Charakterzügen zwar eine kleinbürgerliche Naturverbundenheit (vgl. Martin Broszat, Kommandant in Auschwitz, S. 19) gezählt wird, wie sie aus dem vorliegenden Blatt leicht herausgelesen werden kann, dessen bekannte Gefühlsarmut und nicht zuletzt seine Betätigung im Freikorps und Beteiligung am Fememord an Walter Kadow 1923 aber kaum den Künstlerdilettanten vermuten lassen dürften. Wegen letzteren Verbrechens wurde Höß noch 1923 verhaftet und 1924 zu zehn Jahren Zuchthaus verurteilt (1928 amnestiert). Möglicherweise ist die Zeichnung während der Mußestunden der Untersuchungshaft entstanden. - Einige kleine Druckstellen; insgesamt wohlerhalten. Erworben von den Nachfahren der Familie des Infanteriegenerals und Eichenlaubträgers Karl Eibl (1891-1943). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Kitab al-'Ilm al-muktasab fi zira'at adh-dhahab.

      Paris: Librairie Orientaliste, Paul Geuthner,, 1923. Book of Knowledge Acquired Concerning the Cultivation of Gold. Octavo. Original printed light card wraps, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Text in English and Arabic. A little tanned, minor fraying head and tail of the spine, text toned, but an excellent copy of a fragile publication. First edition of this medieval Arabic work on alchemy, prepared by noted British historian of Islamic science Eric Holmyard (1891-1959) using the three manuscript copies of the work known to be extant, together with a manuscript of the Persian commentary by al-Jildaki. Almost nothing is known of al-'Iraqi other than that he was probably active in Mamluk Egypt or Syria during the reign of Sultan Baybars in the late 13th century, though his "'Cultivation of Gold' is valuable because it contains a clear account of the Muslim theory of transmutation, written by a man who realized the importance of experimental work … Its main argument is that all metals … differ from one another only by certain unessential properties which can be removed by suitable treatment. The metallic substance free from all such accidental and unessential properties is represented by gold. This theory was by no means universally supported by 'Arab' chemists. Thus Ibn Sina opposed it" (editor's introduction pp. 4-5). Scarce in commerce, this copy from the library of American Islamicist Nicholas Heer, with his ownership inscription dated "Stanford 1961" to the front free endpaper.

        Lost Wagons

      New York: E.P. Dutton & Companu, 1923. First edition. [viii], 256 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Red buckram. Spine faded, slight spotting to fore-edge. Very good. Bookplate of Edward Borein, reproducting one of his drawings. First edition. [viii], 256 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. From the Library of John Edward Borein. Ffep inscribed: "To my friend Ed Borein, / the greatest storyteller in California. / Dane Coolidge / Berkeley, Cal. / April 27, 1923." John Edward Borein (1872-1945), son of a California deputy sheriff, was sketching Western subjects at the age of five. Encouraged by his family to become an artist, he matriculated at a San Francisco art school, but left after a month to work as a cowboy. In this pursuit he became highly proficient, although, encouraged by his awed fellow cowhands, he continued to draw and sketch in his spare time and, in 1896, began to see his work in print. He eventually developed an enviable competence as a watercolorist, but gave up painting in oils when he compared his work--unfavorably--with that of his friend Charles M. Russell. In 1906 Borein moved to New York to work as an illustrator, and studied etching--which would become a speciality--at the Art Students' League. It was this which set him apart from his peers in Western art, and nearly 400 of his etchings are recorded. Seeped in the history and allurements of the West, he returned to California permanently in 1919, and it is to his native state that much of his work relates. By the 1930s his watercolors, produced with sparkling, vivid colors and conveying a flavor of authenticity without pretension, were enormously popular; they number over 1,000 examples. He is known as an artist "who got the details right" and his readily identifiable personal style sets him apart from others who depict the landscapes, the inhabitants, the history, and the sun-drenched aridity of the American West.

        NEW HAMPSHIRE. A POEM WITH NOTES AND GRACE NOTES with AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT STANZA

      Henry Holt and Company 1923 (1924), New York - Third Printing of the First Trade Edition of one of Frost's most notable books and winner of his first Pulitzer Prize containing such poems as "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Fire and Ice." Illustrated with woodcuts by J. J. Lankes. This copy is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the poet on the recto of the frontispiece for Harold Dickson along with a MANUSCRIPT stanza from "A Star in a Stone-Boat" in the poet's hand: "Some may [know] what they seek in school and church/And why they seek it there. For what I search/I must go measuring stone walls perch on perch." The poem is the first poem in the book after the title poem. Frost has left out the word "know," likely by accident, and changed the punctuation a bit, as was his wont, most noticeably here changing the original semi-colon after "there" to a period and beginning a new sentence after. Dickson is likely the British colonial administrator in the Middle East from the 1920s until the 1940s, author of several books on the region. Very light wear to the spine tips and corners. At the bottom blank margin of the poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay," the previous owner has penned a poem by Emily Dickinson. Near Fine, lacking the dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Haggadah shel Pesach passover hagada

      Ferdinand Osertag Verlag, Berlin, Germany 1923 - Yudlov 2888 Yaari 1952. Yerushalmi 134-136. Spine and edge of boards repaired masterfully. Yudlov writes that this is a smaller version of the 1921 edition (Yudlov 2813. Winer 266 alef). Yudlov did not see the 1921 edition, which printed in 218 copies on hand made paper and bases his entry on Winer and on a facsimile he saw that was printed in Tel Aviv in 1979. He notes the Winer erred regarding the number of pages. 35 leaves. Wine stained in places. Yerushalmi: This is one of the most truly distinguished Haggadahs published in modern times, a milestone in Hebrew book production. The artist responsible for the illustrations was Jacob Steinhardt (1887-1968). Born in Poland, he studied art in Berlin and Paris. In 1912 he returned to Berlin, where he began to exhibit. His career was interrupted by World War I, during which he served in the German army. Returning to Germany, he remained there until the advent of Hitler in 1933, and then left to settle in Jerusalem. In 1949 he became head of the graphics department at the Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts and, from 1953 to 1957, he was its director. Most of Steinhardt¿s work was done in engraving aned lithography, and, above all, in woodcut. The woodcut of the four sons displays the strong impact of German expressionism in that phase of his work. As in the Prague Hagada of 1526 the wicked son appears as a soldier, but dressed in a Prussian uniform with a spiked helmet on his head. The beautiful Hebrew characters in the text of the Haggadah were drawn by the noted type designer Franziska Baruch and executed by Steinhardt in wood. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Arrival

      1923. Watercolor on paper, signed "William M. Timlin" (lower left). 10-1/2 x 9-1/2 in. Framed. Watercolor on paper, signed "William M. Timlin" (lower left). 10-1/2 x 9-1/2 in. Born in Northumberland, Timlin emigrated to South Africa, where he studied art and practised as an architect. The Ship That Sailed to Mars (1923) is his only published book, a fantastical illustrated gift book that rivalled those of Rackham, Dulac, Goble and Nielsen. The book was published by George Harrap, who had earlier published Willy Pogany, and they followed a similar format here, reproducing Timlin's original calligraphic text mounted, like the plates, on grey matte paper. Timlin's book is divided in three parts: detailing the building and outfitting of the ship, the journey, and the arrival. "The Arrival" is the first plate of the third part, showing the ship's arrival on Mars itself, sailing high over a lake surrounded by fantastical buildings, the Martian princess watching them from a terrace overlooking the lake. Together with two original leaves of accompanying calligraphic text: the contents list for "Part three: Mars" and the descriptive text to accompany this plate (text in black with initial letters and decorations in blue). The three items individually matted and framed. Literature: Timlin, The Ship That Sailed to Mars (George Harrap, 1923), Part III, plate 1

        Sämtliche Werke, herausgegeben und eingeleitet von Rudolf Frank * H A L B L E D E R - MAROQUIN - V O R Z U G S A U S G A B E

      München, Rösl & Cie., 1923 - Vollständige Ausgabe in 10 aufwendig hergestelltem Verlags-Handeinbänden: dunkelblaues Halbleder / HLdr / im Format 15,5 x 23 cm mit Rückentitel und -dekoration in Goldprägung, Lederhäubchen und -ecken, 4 erhabenen Zierbünden, hellbraunes Lederrückentitelschild, Kopfgoldschnitt, Zeichenband, gewebeverstärkten Innenfälzen sowie Handpapierbezug (Kleisterpapier) der Deckel, Schrift: Fraktur. XXII+406 / 571 / 416 / 520 / 504 / 524 / 502 / 519 / 433 / 426 Seiten, mit einem Heine-Frontispiz-Titelportrait (samt Seidenhemdchen). Umfassende Ausgabe der Werke und Briefe Heinrich Heines, schönes großzügiges Druck in einer recht großen Fraktur auf kräftigem Velinpapier, gedruckt bei Oskar Brandstetter in Leipzig. - - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Elegante Halbleder-Vorzugsausgabe aus der Reihe "Rösl-Klassiker", Erstausgabe, EA in guter Erhaltung (Rücken etwas ausgeblichen, Einbände mit ganz leichten Gebrauchsspuren, einige Ecken leicht berieben, sonst tadellos) Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 2000 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
