        The World Crisis, full set of 6 British first edition, first printings

      Thornton Butterworth Limited, London 1923 - Here is a full British first edition set of Winston Churchill's The World Crisis published between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. This is a respectable full set of British first edition, first printings. Condition varies from very good to good minus. All six bindings remain square with the original bindings intact. Wear varies from very light for the 1911-1914 and two 1916-1918 volumes to moderate for The Eastern Front, and heavier for 1915 and The Aftermath. The 1915 volume suffers more scuffing and dulling than the other five volumes. The Aftermath suffers from some wrinkling of the spine cloth and from a considerable case of the blistering of the cloth endemic to this edition in general and this volume in particular. The contents of all six volumes are much better than average, with only light spotting that appears confined to page edges and the prelims of The Eastern Front. The Eastern Front is nonetheless a very nice copy of the elusive first printing with all maps and illustrations present, including the 8 photograph portraits and the notoriously fragile folding color map at page 368. The decorative bookplate of Arthur D. Fanshawe is affixed to the front pastedown of the 1911-1914 volume. Admiral of the Fleet Sir Arthur Dalrymple Fanshawe GCB GCVO (2 April 1847 – 21 January 1936) joined the Royal Navy as a cadet in 1860. He went on to be Commander-in-Chief, Australia Station in 1902, President of the Royal Naval College at Greenwich in 1906 and Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth in 1908. There is a single previous owner's name inked to the ffeps of 1916-1918 Part I and The Aftermath and two names (dated 1932 and 1941 respectively) inked to the front pastedown of The Eastern Front. Please note that this large set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI), Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Carl Oskar Borg (March 3, 1879 Ð May 8, 1947) was a Swedish born, American painter who was known for themes of the Southwestern United States.Borg was born into a poor family in VŠstergštland , Sweden. He moved to London at age 20 to assist portrait and marine artist George Johansen. In 1901, he sailed for the United States. Borg taught art at the California Art Institute in Los Angeles and at the Santa Barbara School of the Arts. He became a protege of American philanthropist and art patron Phoebe Hearst.

He worked in various mediums including oil, watercolor, etchings, and woodblock. He was commissioned to paint posters for the railway company, Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. His posters were put up on the company's sales offices and attracted attention. He was known for his dramatic paintings of the Grand Canyon. Borg was a founding member of the Painter's Club of Los Angeles and the California Art Club. He was one of the first art directors for a major movie studio in Hollywood and he worked with the production of silent films in the years 1925-1928 with Sam Goldwyn, Douglas Fairbanks and Cecil B. de Mille.

        Preliminary Chart China Sea. Western Approaches to Singapore (Attention is called to Notice to Mariners No.1 of each year) From Surveys by Lieut. & Commr. F.A. Reyne R.N. 1912. Lieut. & Commr. R.I. Hancock R.N. 1910, & Leuitenant and Commander H.P. Douglas R.N. 1909. H.M. Surveying Ship "Waterwitch" 1909-12.

      Published at the Admiralty, New Edition 19th February, 1923., London, - Engraved chart, including tidal information, compass roses, soundings, seabed notations, sandbanks, shoals, lighthouses and beacons picked out in yellow and red, inland elevations and detailing, a few red ink arches showing the radius of lighthouse illumination, inset chart of Tai Sami, and Goat Island. Detailed chart of Singapore to Pulau Merambong. Singapore was at the time undergoing significant dock and naval works in order to counter the increasingly ambitious Japanese Empire. The works - completed in 1939 at the cost some $500,000 - boasted the largest dry dock in the world, the third largest wet dock, and enough fuel tanks to support the entire Royal Navy for six months. The city was protected from naval attack by Royal Naval 15 inch guns and a Royal Air Force squadron based at Tenagh Air Base. Churchill was proud enough of its fortifications to boast of it as the "Gibraltar of the East". However, pride often comes before a fall and on the 15th February 1942, after just 15 days of fighting Singapore was under Japanese control. Some 130,000 allied troops were taken prisoner; Churchill called it the "worst disaster and largest capitulation in British history". 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.

Ransome kept a detailed logbook of the cruise. With encouragement from both his old mentor, W.G. Collingwood, and his publisher, Stanley Unwin, Ransome turned his log book into a manuscript for Racundra's First Cruise over the winter of 1922 – 23."

        KROMOBLANDA'-- Over't Vraagstuk van 'het Wonen' in Kromo's groote Land.

      Den Haag, 1915-1923. - EA. 6 Bände in 7 (Bd. VI in Fotokopie !) . Über 1.200(!) montierte bzw. eingeklebte fotografische Abb., eine große Zahl teils kolorierter, teils gefalteter Karten und Pläne sowie reichlich Zeichnungen, Tabellen, Register und Literaturverzeichnisse. Bd. 1 und 2 in weißem OBr., Bd. 3, 4 und 5(1. Teil) und 5(2. Teil) in schwarzem OBr., jeweils mit montierter Photographie auf dem Broschurdeckel. Der extremst seltene Band 6, der selbst bibliothekarisch kaum nachweisbar bzw. erhältlich ist, liegt hier leider nur in guter Fotokopie vor! 187,/ 266,/ 217,/ 218-685,/ 417,/ 416-960, 28 (1) S.; insgesamt über 2.100 Seiten. Folio (32x26cm). Alle Broschur- Einbände mit geringen Gebrauchsspuren, teils etwas knittrig, teils leicht fleckig; Bd. 4 mit geringfügigem Wasserschaden (keinerlei Beeinträchtigung von Text oder Bild,lediglich leichte Verfärbung und leicht wellig auf einigen Seiten), Bd. 1 etwas stärker stockfleckig. 3 Bände mit kleinen, ablösbaren Papier-Märklein auf dem Einband und einem kleinen Stempel auf dem Titelblatt. Insgesamt gute und vollständige Exemplare mit teils sauber ausgebesserten Rückenpartien. Selten! So fast vollständig wird das monumentale Werk äußerst selten angeboten. H.F. Tillema hat einen großen Teil seiner Lebenszeit in Indonesien in die Verwirklichung dieses Projektes 'Kromoblanda' gesteckt. Allein die große Zahl von ausgezeichneten Fotografien aus den unterschiedlichsten - meist wenig bekannten - Quellen zeugt schon vom enormen Aufwand. Die ganze Serie ist über viele Jahre hinweg in geringer Stückzahl und nicht über den Buchhandel produziert und verteilt worden. Dementsprechend schnell waren die einzelnen Bände nicht mehr zu bekommen. Das Werk beschäftigt sich mit den Lebensverhältnissen der indonesischen Bevölkerung unter gesundheitlichen Aspekten wie z.B. Wasserversorgung oder Hygiene. Auch die Naturvölker fast aller Inseln werden ausführlich berücksichtigt. Einmalig!

        The Wares of the Ming Dynasty. SIGNED and presented by R. L. Hobson to A. L. Hetherington

      London: Benn Brothers, 1923 - First edition, first printing. LIMITED edition of 1,500 copies. This copy is NUMBERED. Beautiful bookplate of A. L. Hetherington, SIGNED and presented by R. L. Hobson to A. L. Hetherington. 29*23*4.5cm, wt: 2.3kg, xvi+240+61 full-page plates. A fine copy with 128 illustrations, of which 11 are in colour. This copy is UNIQUE in that it has 2 additional color plates (uncalled for in the plate list) while the other copies of this same limited edition of 1,500 copies do NOT have. Presumably these 2 extra plates were added by Hetherington himself, as this and 2 other titles of Chinese porcelain books, all limited and signed by Hetherington, came from the same bookseller, and all of these titles have one or two extra plates.

Half morocco clamshell case. First edition of the first title in Pound's INQUEST series, limited to three hundred copies, a significant number of which remained, unbound and unnumbered, with the effects of William Bird, the publisher. While not a particularly scarce book in general, copies such as this, with the corners intact and sharp, and the endleaves as fresh as new snow, are seldom seen. GALLUP A23.

      Paris: Contact Editions / Three Mountain Press. 1923. First. First edition. Fine in French-folded wrappers, in a chipped, original unprinted glassine sleeve. McAlmon was the founder of Contact Editions which published James Joyce, Ezra Pound, and several others, including Ernest Hemingway's first book. He was at the center of expatriate life and helped to support various struggling artists and writers in that tumultuous time. One of 200 copies, the sleeve is pretty nearly impossible to find. .
