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

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full British first edition, first printing, six-volume set, published between 1923 and 1931. Condition is quite respectable, superior to that of most sets we encounter and increasingly challenging to assemble thus. The final volume, The Eastern Front, was produced in smaller numbers, making it challenging to fill complete sets. This full first printing set features volumes ranging from very good to near fine. Shelf presentation is quite good, with nicely rounded spines, strong navy color, and bright gilt. Spotting, endemic to the edition, appears almost entirely confined to the page edges of four volumes. Previous ownership marks are limited to a name inked to the 1911-1914 front free endpaper, a Times Book Club sticker affixed to the lower rear 1915 pastedown, and the same, small London bookseller sticker affixed to the lower front pastedown of both 1916-1918 volumes. The binding of The Aftermath proved prone to unsightly blistering of the cloth; while the binding of this copy shows slight spine dulling and a little wear to the spine ends and corners, it is noteworthy for suffering none of the typical blistering of the cloth and the contents appear entirely free of spotting. The Eastern Front is a particularly fine example, with a strikingly bright, clean, and sharp-cornered binding. Churchill played a critical, controversial, and varied role in the First World War and his remarkable experience underpins his epic, six-volume history of the conflict. Of The World Crisis, 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. 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. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I).b, A69.2(II).a, A69.2(III-1&2).a, A69.2(IV).b, A69.2(V).a; Woods/ICS A31(ab); Langworth p.105

Small area at top of front joint expertly and invisibly repaired. A fine example.Charles de Sousy Ricketts RA (1866-1931) was a versatile English artist, illustrator, author and printer, and is best known for his work as book designer and typographer from 1896 to 1904 with the Vale Press, and his work in the theatre as a set and costume designer. Ricketts was born in Geneva to a French mother and an English father. He grew up mainly in France and Italy. He began his studies in art at the City and Guilds Technical Art School in Lambeth, in 1882, after both his parents had died. At the Art School he met Charles Shannon (1863-1937), painter and lithographer, who would be his lifelong partner in both his artistic and personal life. On the advice of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, they settled in England rather than abroad. Ricketts became a celebrated and sought-after designer for the stage. "Mr Ricketts is infallible in his ideas on costume" observed The Times. Plays on which he worked included Oscar Wilde's Salome (1906), Laurence Binyon's Attila (1907), King Lear (1909), Bernard Shaw's The Dark Lady (1910), Arnold Bennett's Judith (1916), Shaw's Annajanska, the Bolshevik Empress (1918), Maurice Maeterlinck's The Betrothal (1920), Shaw's Saint Joan (1924), and Macbeth (1926).

        Alef-Bet

      Verlag "Lasefer" S. D. Saltzmann. Printed by Richard Labisch & Co., Berlin 1923 - 8vo. 25 cm. 30 unnumbered pages, 27 of which have a chromolithographic, "illuminated" illustration of the Hebrew letter, and an object or thing which begins with that letter, as typical of ABC books, other than this one is using the Hebrew alphabet. The coloring, especially the profuse use of gold set against a gray slate backdrop, is riveting, and together with the general feel and style of the illustrations, relates easily to the Jugendstil book illustrations so prevalent in Germanic children's books of the period. Raban was a teacher of the Bezalel School of Art. The book is uncommon in its original edition, which this is. Moderate to arguably heavy wear and soiling. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Richard Dreher wuchs als ältestes von fünf Kindern in ärmlichen Verhältnissen in Dresden auf. Als er 14 Jahre alt war, begann er eine Lehre bei einem Dresdener Lithografen. 1892 wechselte er zu einem Berliner Lithografen und wurde später Retuscheur bei einem Fotografen. Während dieser Zeit beschäftigte er sich vermehrt mit Kunst und lernte 1895 Gerhart Hauptmann kennen. Bei einem Aufenthalt in Hamburg entschied er, sich nur noch der Kunst zu widmen. 1903 nahm er an Kunstausstellungen in Berlin und Dresden teil. Im folgenden Jahr zog er mit seiner Familie nach Rockau, wo er hauptsächlich Elblandschaften malte. Er nahm weiterhin an Ausstellungen teil und erhielt 1908 den Villa-Romana-Preis des Deutschen Künstlerbundes. Der einsetzende Erfolg ermöglichte es Richard Dreher, mit seiner Familie ein Jahr in Florenz und in Forte dei Marmi in der Nähe von Pisa zu verbringen. Auch danach stellt er weiter mit Erfolg aus, zum Beispiel bei der Galerie Ernst Arnold und bei Paul Cassirer. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg unternahm er Studienreisen nach Dänemark, Südfrankreich, Rom und in die Toskana. Er kaufte 1915, nachdem er ein zweites Mal geheiratet hat, ein Haus in Elbersdorf. Weil er keinen Militärdienst leisten musste, konnte er sich auch während des Krieges weiter mit der Kunst befassen. Nach Kriegsende ging er 1919 als Professor für Malerei an die Kunstakademie Dresden und unterrichtete dort unter anderem Wilhelm Lachnit und Otto Garten. 1924 fuhr er erneut auf Studienreise nach Italien. Dreher zog sich zunehmend aus gesundheitlichen Gründen aus der Öffentlichkeit zurück. Von 1927 bis zu seinem Tod 1932 wohnte er im Wasserpalais des Pillnitzer Schlosses.

"Born and initially trained in Lodz, Poland, Ze'ev Raban (1890-1970) studied in a variety of academies around Europe - the School of Applied Art in Munich, the Beaux-Arts Academy in Paris, and the Royal Academy of Art in Brussels. In 1911 he met Boris Schatz, the founder of the Bezalel Academy, a Zionist inspired school begun in 1903 to encourage a new Jewish cultural/art/craft tradition in the Jewish homeland. Schatz's goal for the Bezalel Academy and Workshops, in which Raban participated starting in 1912, was to establish a Jewish arts and crafts tradition that combined the best of European and indigenous Middle-Eastern cultures. Raban soon became a major influence at the Bezalel. He played a central role at the Academy teaching repoussé work, painting, and sculpture and then directing the Graphics Press and the Industrial Art Studio of the Bezalel Academy. By 1914 the majority of works produced in the Bezalel workshops were designed by Raban. But arguably his most important contributions were the illustrations he made for the various books he published - the Song of Songs, the Book of Ruth, the Book of Esther, the Book of Job, and the Passover Haggadah. These illustrations represent the pinnacle of the "Bezalel Style" - a fusion of ‘oriental' art and Jugendstil. (Art at the Center Judaica Gallery) Subjects: Bible. O. T. Song of Solomon. Hebrew. Raban. ; Bible. ; O. T. ; Song of Solomon. ; English. ; Raban. Colorful endpapers. Features 1923 inscription from Jacob Landau to Cyrus Adler. Ex-library with usual markings. Binding repaired.

        Swann's Way

      Henry Holt and Company, New York 1923 - 2 vols. 303; 288 p. "Remembrance of Things Past" Part One. Quarter tan cloth with gold design over green boards. Black and gold spine labels are slightly chipped. Ink initials on front loose endpapers. Vol. 1 has slight mark on title page. "Swann's Way" is the first part of Proust's monumental "In Search of Lost Time" (once translated as "Remembrance of Things Past"), introducing its major themes and its unnamed narrator. The book begins with the narrator's reminiscences of early childhood and his family's various neighbours and acquaintances. He then turns his focus on the wealthy Charles Swann and his relationship with the courtesan Odette. First appearing in 1913, the book remains a bitingly satiric but comical evocation of early 20th century French society and addresses a range of philosophical questions. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Murder on the Links

      Dodd, Mead, New York 1923 - 298 pages. Agatha Christie is widely believed to be the most popular fiction writer of all time. Books she has authored have sold over three billion copies globally. The Murder on the Links is especially popular since it was Christie¿s third mystery (of 66 total mysteries), and one of the scarcest. The story features her famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. The plot involves a millionaire, Monsieur Renauld, who asks for Poirot¿s help. Unfortunately, before Poirot can help him he is found dead in an unfinished bunker on a golf course. The first American edition was published by Dodd, Mead in 1923, following its initial first edition published in the U.K. by Bodley Head. The American edition was published in a dark green cloth with orange lettering. The book is dedicated ¿To My Husband, a fellow enthusiast for detective stories, and to whom I am indebted for much helpful advice and criticism.¿ She would subsequently divorce this husband, Archibald Christie, who was a member of Sunningdale, where they had a house in the 1920s. In her auto-biography, she states that ¿all he did was think about golf.¿ In 1971, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II. D & J C11770. Is it difficult to find good first editions. We specialize in golf books. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
