Die Radierung „Geneigter Kopf“, Rosenbach 35, wurde bereits 1985 in dem ersten maßgeblichen Werkverzeichnis des druckgraphischen Werks von Alexej von Jawlensky publiziert.

        The Story of the Cape to Cairo Railway and River Route, from 1887 to 1922.

      London: The Pioneer Publishing Company Limited,, 1923-6. 4 quarto text volumes and 1 map portfolio. Original black hard-grain half or quarter morocco, green cloth sides, spines lettered and decorated in gilt. Profusely illustrated with mounted photographic portraits, halftone plates (many folding) and text illustrations, and folding maps, most in colour (of which 12 in the map porfolio). Extremities lightly bumped and rubbed in places, corners worn (bumped in map porfolio), scattered faint marking to sides, mild finger-soiling to edges of text-blocks, two small punctures to vol. 1 spine, contents clean and fresh. A very good set. First edition, complete with the map volume, of this suitably lavish tribute to one of the most glorious failures of the empire, the project conceived by Cecil Rhodes as "The Iron Spine and Ribs of Africa". By 1914 there was already a 2,600-mile link from Cape Town to Bukama in the Congo; two sections of river steamer and an isolated length of Congolese railway took the route to Stanleyville. In the north, the line was continuous from Cairo to Luxor and from Wadi Halfa to Kosti; these two sections were connected by 250 miles of Nile steamer, but the route to cross uncharted parts of the northern Congo and southern Sudan was not even surveyed by the time of publication, and the scheme was never completed. Weinthal produced this encyclopaedic work as "a belated but substantial tribute to Rhodes's idea … As an advisory board for this Brobdingnagian project, Weinthal recruited every possible survivor with a connection to Rhodes and to colonial Africa, every likely expert on the continent, and every amenable viceroy, sirdar, and colonial governor, from the general manager of the South African Railways to Sir Abe Bailey, Flinders Petrie, and Lord Lugard. The contents include essays on the history, society, and natural conditions of the African states to be traversed by the prospective railway; the mercantile potential of these states and the benefit of rail transport; the railway engineering feats undertaken in East Africa; touristic topics, such as ethnographic studies of tribespeople; big-game hunting; the "mysteries" of the Great Zimbabwe; the progress of colonial society in Cairo; and genial fantasies concerning the future of an "unlocked" continent that would be crossed by great silver airships stopping airily at new cities to disembark their passengers; merchants, mining engineers, and families of colonial administrators" (Merrington). Other prominent contributors were Sir Percy Fitzgerald on "Cecil Rhodes and Dr. Jameson;" Sir Harry Johnston on the native languages along the route; the late Captain Selous on big game; and Flinders Petrie on "The Trail of the Ancients on the Route"; there is also an extract from Churchill's My African Journey, accompanied by a portrait. Typescript labels and library plates to the front free endpapers record the bequest of this set to Barclays Bank by Lady Caulcutt, widow of Sir John (1876-1943), longtime director of Barclays, in 1944.

        The World Crisis:

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1923–31. 1911–1914; 1915; 1916–1918; The Aftermath; The Unknown War: The Eastern Front. 5 volumes in 6, octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles gilt to spines, raised bands, single ruled gilt panel to compartments with rampant lion device gilt to the first, fifth and sixth, single rule to boards, autograph block to front boards, twin rule to turn-ins, burgundy endpapers, gilt edges. Illustrated throughout with maps and charts (many folding). Some occasional light foxing otherwise an excellent set in a fine binding. First editions, first impressions, with errata slip in volume IV; The Aftermath is the second state of the first printing (with the two-line errata slip at p. 9). Inscribed by the author on the front fly-leaf of volume 1 "Inscribed by Winston Churchill 1948." 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.
