        The World Crisis

      This is a collector grade copy of the first abridged and revised edition, third and final printing of Churchill's history of the First World War.  Churchill's history - which he titled "The World Crisis" - was originally 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 masterwork - originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931 - far exceeds this purpose.  This important edition covering the war years 1911-1918 is not just an abridgement. It incorporates revisions by Churchill with new material, including a whole new chapter on the Battle of the Marne, as well as a new introduction.  The U.S. edition preceded the British, making it the true first edition. There were three printings of the U.S. first abridged and revised edition - 1931, 1942, and 1949.  All three are quite scarce in the original dust jackets. Here is the third printing.  A large book and quality production, it is 866 pages with fold-out maps and illustrations, bound in an attractive, vertically scored red cloth.  This is a superior copy for collectors, fine in a near-fine dust jacket.  The red cloth binding is immaculate, with virtually no wear. We note only a hint of wrinkling at the spine ends.  The contents are clean, bright, and tight.  No spotting.  No previous ownership marks.  All fold-out maps and illustrations are present and pristine.  Even the text block edges remain clean and bright.  The black dust jacket of this edition proved particularly susceptible to wear and scuffing, perhaps owing to the thin paper of the dust jacket (which was printed black on white paper), and the size and weight of the book. Here is a notable example of this dust jacket. The jacket is highly complete and unclipped, still bearing the original $7.50 price on the front flap.  Spine presentation is excellent, with Churchill's red facsimile signature entirely unfaded and only trivial wear at the head and tail.  The front face bearing the prominent Churchill photo shows only mild wear at the edges.  The white rear face is bright with almost no soiling and two tiny triangular chips - one at the top edge and another at the upper hinge.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Additional images are available upon request.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.5.c, Woods/ICS A31(ba), Langworth p.114

      Rédaction et Administration La Revue Méridionale 1923 - 30 numéros in-8 br., Rédaction et Administration, Bordeaux, 1923 Rare série proposant de manière quasi-suivie (hormis l'absence du numéro de Mai 1923) de la "Revue méridionale" fondée par le Comte Bertrand de Lur-Saluces, depuis Février 1923 jusqu'à son dernier numéro publié daté du 15 septembre 1925. A cette date, la Revue Méridionale fusionna avec la "Revue Fédéraliste" de Lyon. La présente série a été richement truffé par l'abonné de coupures de presse (collées sur des feuillets insérés dans chaque numéros) relatives à la politique, aux lettres et aux arts, mais également à la vie locale (Bordelais et Gascogne). L'aspect global de la collection en est fortement affecté (et chaque numéro est protégé par un papier kraft souvent contrecollé en marges), mais l'intérêt de la série, l'une des rares à s'ouvrir aussi largement aux Félibres de "Guyenne et Gascogne" (dont Adolphe Dumas), en est encore accru.

        The Bibendum Sketchbook. [Illustrations by Cousyn, Grand Aigle, Hautot, C. King, O'Galop, Ortiz and others]. BIBENDUM'S TWENTY-FIFTH YEAR

      [Michelin, Paris?, 1923]. Oblong 4to., First Edition thus, text in English, title and text in blue and black, with very numerous delightful cartoons throughout, neat signature on title; original illustrated wrappers, wire-stitched as issued, yapped edges, covers mildly age-soiled else a very good, clean copy of a rare booklet. One of the world's oldest trademarks, 'Bibendum' (the 'Michelin Man') was created in 1898 by cartoonist Marius Rossillon ['O'Galop'] at the instigation of Andre Michelin. The figure's first mass appearance was on the company's famous poster of 1898 since when it has continued to represent the Michelin company in over 150 companies. This very scarce booklet was produced to mark the figure's twenty-fifth anniversary. Since text and captions are entirely in English (but printed in France) we assume that this is the English version of a French promotional publication. A RARE SURVIVAL. .

Original sand cloth, titles gilt to spine and upper board, gilt scarab on black on-lay to the upper boards, green patterned endpapers. Profusely illustrated from photographs by Harry Burton, photographer for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A little rubbed and soiled, slight lean, mild foxing to the edges and prelims, more extensive in volume III, which is also lightly damped at the fore-edge of both boards with minor adhesion damage to the endpapers, overall a very good set. First editions, first impressions in original cloth of a set only rarely found complete thus. A key text of Egyptology, Carter's account of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen, is the primary source for what is surely, alongside Schliemann's discovery of Troy, the most famous archaeological excavation of all time: the first and to date the finest royal tomb found virtually intact in the history of Egyptology.

Rare in any form, this work of fiction by early - and now quite famous - Canadian women's rights activist Nellie McClung - is the story of some Canadian women who outwit the raucous local men in a small Alberta town on Christmas Eve. McClung was such a leader in Canadian Women's Suffrage that on October 18, 1999, she and four others from the movement were permanently honored in the form of five larger-than-life bronze statues (by Canadian artist Barbara Paterson) which were unveiled at Olympic Plaza in Calgary. A second set was unveiled on October 18, 2000, on Parliament Hill - an honor previously reserved for Fathers of Confederation, Canadian monarchs, and deceased prime ministers. Veyr difficult to find at all, nearly impossible to locate in its full woodcut pictorial jacketing and the matching gift box. Please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans. - Jeff Harvey L28

The excellent quality of framing and pristine condition makes this print especially desirable. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        Tory M.P.'s on Mr. Brodrick's Army Corps Scheme, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1903, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      This Bound volume contains Liberal Leaflet No. 1923 entitled "Tory M.P.s on Mr. Brodrick's Army Corps Scheme. The pamphlet is 4 pages in length and contains two excerpts from Churchill's House of Commons Speech of 24 February 1903 - the last of his famous six oratorical assaults on Brodrick's plan to expand the Army. In 1903 Winston Churchill was a brash new member of Parliament. Then Secretary of State for War, John Brodrick, had introduced a plan for expanding the peacetime Army. Brodrick was a fellow Conservative and Cabinet member. Churchill had been an Army officer and had partaken in four wars on three continents before election to Parliament in 1900. Nonetheless, Churchill vehemently assaulted Brodrick's plan. Fascinatingly, this was the same fight upon which Churchill's father, Lord Randolph Churchill, had gambled and lost his own political career in 1886. Unlike that of his father, Churchill's opposition ultimately prevailed, with Churchill making six major speeches on the subject in two years. Published here are two separate excerpts from Churchill's House of Commons speech of 24 February 1903, the last of these six speeches. The full text of the address was subsequently collected in Winston S. Churchill His Complete Speeches under the title "Army Organization" in Volume I, pp. 164-175 (the Churchill excerpts appearing on pp. 167 and 173). The only other publication is in Mr. Brodrick's Army, under the title "Promise and Performance" with an erroneous date of 23 February. Of great interest, these are the only three known published appearances of this speech and the extract that appears here differs significantly in phraseology among all three publications. The fact that these speech excerpts - by a Conservative M.P. attacking the plan of a Conservative Cabinet member - are published by the Publications Department of the Liberal Party presages the momentous impending change in Churchill's political alignment. In 1904 Churchill would leave the Conservative Party of his father to join the Liberals. He would not return to the Tories until 1924. The bound volume offered here is itself a fascinating piece of history, containing a total of 20 pamphlets and 62 leaflets, many of which are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. The volume is bound in black pebble grain leather spine over ribbed green buckram covers - the more commonly seen binding variant for Liberal Publications volumes of this era. The book measures 8 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets, as well as an Index of Subjects. Condition is very good. The black leather spine remains supple, retains bright gilt, and shows virtually no wear. The green boards show little wear, but are moisture stained. The contents are truly excellent - crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no inscriptions. The gilt top edge remains bright. Light spotting is confined to the fore edge and bottom edge of the text block. The pamphlet bearing Churchill's speech excerpts is pristine with no wear or flaws. Additional images available upon request. Bibliographic reference: Cohen D1/1, unknown to Woods.

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

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1923 (1924). First Edition. Cloth-backed boards. 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. J. J. Lankes. 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.
