        The World Crisis, full set of U.S. first editions inscribed and dated by Churchill

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. INSCRIBED AND DATED BY CHURCHILL. Any inscribed World Crisis set is a prize, but inscribed U.S. editions seem considerably more scarce than inscribed British editions. Collectors will note, the U.S. first edition of the World Crisis is the true first edition, as U.S. publication preceded the British. Offered here is a full set of U.S. first editions signed by Churchill in Volume IV, The Aftermath. A lovely inked inscription by the author in three lines on the ffep reads "Inscribed by Winston S. Churchill Feb. 1932". All volumes are first edition, first printings except for The Aftermath, which is first edition, third printing. In February of 1932, Churchill was traveling in the United States on a lucrative and successful lecture tour. He spoke in many cities throughout the month before departing for England on 11 March aboard the ocean liner Majestic. This volume was undoubtedly inscribed during the tour. Publisher Charles Scribner wrote to Churchill on the day of his departure "I sincerely hope that you made no mistake in trusting your books to us. we will continue to back them until they come into their own." Churchill's books most certainly did come into their own. The inscribed volume is in very good condition. The russet boards are bright and clean with square corners and only minor shelf wear at the bottom edge. The spine is just slightly faded with minor wear at head and tail, but is clean and retains good color and bright gilt. The contents are clean and bright with no inscriptions save the one by the author. The third printing was issued in September 1929, six months after the first. The five first edition, first printing books comprising the rest of this set are in very good to near-fine condition with minor flaws and wear. The contents are uniformly clean, tight, and unusually bright for paper that is prone to age-yellowing. There is no spotting. There are no previous ownership marks save for a bookplate on the pastedown of The Unknown War. The boards are all clean and bright with only minor scuffing or blemishes. Spine presentation shows only very mild fading. Even the notoriously fade-prone Volume I spine retains good color, although the gilt has darkened as is normal for this volume. Of special note, the folding map at p.388 of The Unknown War is properly folded with no tears; there is just some wear to the leading edge where it protrudes slightly from the text block. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1, Woods/ICS A31(aa). Langworth p.103.

        The Frontier Trail Or From Cowboy to Colonel. An Authentic Narrative of Forty-Three Years in the Old West as Cattle-Man, Indian Fighter and Army Officer. By Colonel Homer W. Wheeler (Retired) U.S. Army (Late Fifth Cavalry) With an introduction by Major-General James G. Harbord, Assistajnt Chief of Staff, United Stated Army

      Times-Mirror Press, Los Angeles 1923 - Bound in brick red cloth stamped brightly in black, the book is in very good minus condition. The front and rear boards are clean, the corners are bumped. With light wear and a touch of fraying to the top and bottom of the spine ends. The spine bulges a little because of the additional leaflets and letters glued in; and the hinges are tender and separating; the rear hinge is mostly sprung. This extra-illustrated copy is unique. First it is inscribed: "To W. Thornton Parker. M.D. With kind personal regards of the Author. Homer W. Wheeler Col. H.O. Cavalry. Retired. Los Angeles, Calif. May 13th 1924." The front paste-down bears the armorial bookplate of William Thornton Parker, M.D. The volume is then extra-illustrated with photographs, leaflets, and letters from Homer Wheeler to Thornton Parker. On the verso of the title page Dr. Parker has pasted a photograph of himself attired in buckskins, holding his rifle across his knees and cradling his dog's head with his right hand. Inscribed beneath the photo: "William Thornton Parker, M.D. Surgeon N.L. Indian Service-- White Earth Indian Reservation Minnesota 1879-80." On the next page is the photo of a Chippewa tomahawk and written in ink: "Presented to Dr. W. T. Parker by Chippewa War Chief Meeshee Kee Gee Shig." There are two sepia photos of "Fort Leavenworth Kansas, 1880" glued in between pages 196 and 197. Another striking sepia photograph is of "Fort Cummings New Mexico" tipped in after p. 124. There is an 8 page pamphlet titled: "Personal Experiences among our North American Indians from 1867 to 1885 by W. Thornton Parker, M.D. published in Northampton, MASS in 1913" tipped in opposite p. 309; and an article entitled: "The Evolution of the Colored Soldier by W. Thornton Parker, dated in ink 1899. In addition to several other pieces of ephemera glued in there are three letters (one 2 pages) written in black ink in Homer Wheeler's hand and signed by him. The letters are tipped-in at the front and rear of the book and dated 1922 and 1924. There are also a few newspaper articles glued in along with Military Testimonials from 1915.

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

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Offered 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 full set of British first edition, first printings - a sound and respectable complete set in very good condition, marred only by the common aesthetic flaws of some scuffing and spotting. All six bindings are tight, and square, with nicely rounded spines and strong spine gilt. All six bindings show some shelf wear. The Eastern Front is notable for sharp corners and minimal wear, but does show some blistering of the spine cloth along the front hinge. The contents of all six volumes are tight and complete. All maps, charts, etc. are intact, including the notoriously fragile color folding map at the end of The Eastern Front. The only previous owner mark in the set is in pencil and found in The Aftermath - a touching single previous owner inscription from 1934 on the front pastedown. Four of the six volumes show some of the spotting endemic to the British first edition. In the 1911-1914 and 1915 volumes, spotting is confined to prelims and page edges. The 1916-1918 volumes are free of spotting. The Aftermath shows heavier spotting to the page edges, with light internal spotting primarily confined to prelims. The lack of a two-line Errata is tipped in at p.9. confirms that The Aftermath is not only first printing, but first state. The Eastern Front has intermittent spotting throughout, light in the main text but heavier in the prelims. Please note that this large set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.&

        The Sun Field

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons. 1923. First. First edition. Pencil owner's name on the front fly, a couple of small splash marks and a small sunned patch near the front gutter, a very good or better copy in near fine dustwrapper with a few very small nicks at the corners. According to McCue's, Baseball by the Books: A History and Bibliography of Baseball Fiction (pg. 25): "The first novel with serious baseball content aimed at an adult audience. The book is narrated by a former sportswriter, as Broun was, in love with a free-spirited, intellectual feminist, as was Broun's wife, while she falls for a baseball player who is clearly modeled on Babe Ruth. Numerous players of the early 1920s appear by name." Exceptionally uncommon in any sort of reasonably attractive dustwrapper .

        The World Crisis, full set of six British first edition, first printings, inscribed by Churchill to a close friend before publication in the third book

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. 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. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105

        Chief Justice William H. Taft Seeks Judicial Help With a Crowded Calendar

      Chief Justice William H. Taft Seeks Judicial Help With a Crowded Calendar.& Under Taft's leadership, the Federal courts heard many cases, and seemed always overwhelmed with work. U.S. Circuit Court Judge Jacob Trieber, the first Jew ever appointed to the Federal bench, was much admired by Taft and was known as a man willing to pitch in and assume an additional caseload. Generally Trieber agreed, but this time he just could not.& & Typed Letter Signed on his Supreme Court letterhead, Washington, February 12, 1923, to Trieber. "I have yours of February 10th. I knew you were a hard-working judge, but often those who are hard-working are the only ones who have any extra time, or at least are the ones who are most likely to do extra work. However, your statement is all sufficient and I must look elsewhere for Judges."
