        Savonarola A Biography in Dramatic Episodes plus handwritten letters

      New York: Robert M. McBride, 1926. First Edition First Printing . Hardcover. Very Good/Good-. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. The unique correspondence that is laid in is a set of letter to Maude Merrill who had appeared in the Peter Pan stage production. They are typewritten by Van Wyck in the course of October, 1930. He has signed them added handwritten notes and post scripts. They concern Van Wyck's life and domestic situation at the time, but there are also passages where Van Wyck rhapsodizes about their earlier relationship (for example -" Peter Pan and Wendy - Dear God what a long time that was and how poignantly it affects me even yet"). There is also a Passionate hand written love letter to "My Beloved" (although a later sentence contains "I have missed my Wendy! My love..."). This stated first edition is clean, tight, basically square and unmarked in an about good dust jacket that looks better in Brodart. It is lightly rubbed at the edges and front board has a slight bow. The dust jacket has edge wear with several small chips and the spine is darkened. It has gray end papers and 263 clear pages with some minimal foxing in a one-quarter binding with maroon cloth covered boards with titles on a paste down on the spine. The boards are covered in brown cloth. The signatures are on the correspondence.

        Aus meiner Kindheit und Jugendzeit [Signed; Jack Palance's Copy] [From My Childhood and Youth; Memoirs of My Childhood and Youth]

      C. H. Beck'sche [C. H. Beck], 1926, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: very good, First editionA Very Good copy of the first German edition, first printing (spine ends modestly pushed, minor toning to the board extremities, a few tiny spots to the rear board, prior owner's ), in a Very Good toned dust jacket (chipping to the spine ends and panel corners, a small loss to the spine a bit below the center, small spot to front panel tape repairs on the verso (inside) to the spine, front panel's upper edge, upper rear flap turn), SIGNED BY ALBERT SCHWEITZER on the title page; Albert Schweitzer was all of Physician, Philosopher, medical missionary, organ virtuoso, Bach authority, New Testament Scholar, author, and winner of the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize. In presenting the Prize to Schweitzer, Gunnar Jahn, Chairman of the Nobel Committee, spoke extensively on Albert Schweitzer's youth and noted that "I have dwelt so long on Albert Schweitzer's youth because I believe that it explains all of his later life and work. Already at that time a flame burned within him, a flame which he has kept alight throughout his entire life and which has become the inspirational source for all his activity." This understanding of Schweitzer reveals the importance of the book herein described. Having a notable Provence, this copy belonged to the actor Jack Palance and carries the bookplate from the 2006 sale of this Personal Property loosely laid in.In our experience, signed copies of the book are quite scarce indeed. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY ALBERT SCHWEITZER.

Um die Gefahr einer Revolution zu begegnen, wurde das Wachregiment Berlin Anfang 1921 gegründet. Neben der Verteidigung der jungen Republik wurde das Wachregiment für zeremonielle und repräsentative Aufgaben wie Paraden und Wachdienste in der Hauptstadt eingesetzt. Das Wachregiment war kurzlebig und wurde im Juni 1921 aufgelöst. Allerdings wurde die Einheit im folgenden als Kommando der Wachtruppe (lit. Garde Troop Command), eine Einheit mit den gleichen Pflichten wie der Wachregiment reformiert. "Wachtruppe Berlin" wurde mit sieben Kompanien, einem Maschinengewehr Unternehmen und eine Artillerie-Batterie geschaffen, und es wurde an der Berlin-Moabit Kaserne stationiert. . Indem das Personal aus den verschiedensten Abteilungen und Ländern rekrutiert wurde (gut dokumentiert im Gästebuch)entstand damit eine einzigartige und im gewissen Sinne "gesamtdeutsche" Struktur innerhalb der Reichswehr. Die Truppen in jedem Unternehmen wurden aus den besten Soldaten in ihren Bereichen gewählt und sie wurden von ihrer ursprüngliche Einheit auf vierteljährlicher Basis abgestellt. Im Jahr 1934 wurde die Einheit Wachtruppe Berlin umbenannt und im Jahr 1936 die Zugabe von einem Hauptquartier und Verwaltungsgesellschaft erhöht die Größe der Einheit zu acht Unternehmen. Im Juni 1937 wurde die Einheit erneut umbenannt, diesmal in Wach-Regiment Berlin. Die Rekrutierung System wurde überarbeitet, mit Postings nicht mehr auf bereichsübergreifende Linien, sondern einzelne Soldaten der Einheit zur 6-Monats-Dienstzeiten geschrieben. Im April 1939 wurde das Wachregiment in dieser Form aufgelöst. Aus diesem und dem Infanterie-Lehr-Regiment Dallgow-Döberitz wurde das Infanterie-Regiment Großdeutschland (mot.) aufgestellt, das aus vier Bataillonen bestand. Im August musste der neu aufgestellte Verband ein "Führer-Begleitkommando" abgeben, zu dessen und seinen Nachfolgeverbänden als Aufgabe die Bewachung des Führerhauptquartiers gehörte. Nachdem im Oktober 1939 die Einheit auf den Truppenübungsplatz Grafenwöhr zur weiteren Zusammenführung und Abschluss der Umgliederung verlegt worden war, wurde das neue Regiment wiederum im November 1939 in den Westerwald nach Montabaur und Westerburg zur Reserve der Heeresgruppe A verlegt, wo es zeitgleich dem XIX. Armeekorps unter General Heinz Guderian unterstellt wurde.

      Frederick H. Hitchcock, 1926. - First edition. Cloth, 220pp., 8 plates. The author was a recognized Medal of Honor recipient; a participant in many campaigns against Comanche and Kiowa hostiles with Col. Ranald Mackenzie's 4th Cavalry. In 1919 & 1920, he published several pamphlets, now rare, about his Indian-fighting experiences on the southern plains. John B. Charlton, the "Old Sergeant", a comrade of Carter's throughout their years with the 4th Cavalry, read Carter's stories and wrote to Carter in 1921. This began a year and a half of frequent, lengthy correspondence between Carter and Charlton, that ended with Charlton's death in March, 1922. Through the detailed, warm correspondence between the two, Carter presents an insightful, first-hand account of the legendary campaigns of Mackenzie's 4th Cavalry from 1871 through 1874. "Mackenzie's Raid" into Mexico; the capture of outlaw "Red" McLaughlin by Charlton and, famous scout, Jack Stillwell; and the 4th Cavalry battles against the Comanches and Kiowas at McClellan's Creek, Palo Duro Canyon, and the north fork of the Red River are among the many incidents recorded. Of special interest is Charlton's account of the killing of Setank, by Charlton, when Setank, Big Tree, and Satanta were being transported to Ft. Richardson, Texas to stand trial for the killing of 7 teamsters of the Warren Wagon Train when they were attacked by Indians east of Ft. Richardson. In addition, Charlton tells Carter about his experience in Colorado, as an independent freight hauler, when, under escort of Major Thornburgh, they were attacked by Ute Indians and kept under siege for 6 days before being rescued. Charlton was hauling freight to the White River Agency in 1879, when the Utes killed Agent Meeker, captured Meeker's wife and daughter, and wreaked havoc throughout the region. Great history, and a warm and occasionally touching reflection by two "old soldiers". Indian wars historian, John M. Carroll wrote that "Carter's enormously important writings on frontier military history will be recognized as source material for all future historians." An important, first-hand record. Previous owners bookplate on front pastedown, else a fine, bright copy in protective slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Graven Images

      Boston & New York: Houghton Mifflin Company. The Riverside Press, 1926. First edition. ix, 101 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Blue paper over boards. Spine laid down, chip at head repaired (small loss to G). Stamps from Beverley School for the Deaf on front endpapers. Inscribed by Caresse Crosby "For Lilly from Caresse We did so love the luncheon at 'Barberry Hill', next year it must be '19 rue de Lille.'" Caresse Crosby, born Mary Phelps Jacob into a prominent New England family, married Harry Crosby and moved to France in 1922. Two years later they founded the Black Sun Press, the great modernist imprint, and published Joyce, Hart Crane, Lawrence, and others. 19, rue de Lille was their Paris residence. After Harry Crosby committed suicide in 1929, Caresse carried on Black Sun Press and founded Crosby Continental Editions. Her later memoir is entitled "The Passionate Years"; Geoffrey Wolff's "Black Sun. The Brief Transit and Violent Eclipse of Harry Crosby" offers a counterbalancing perspective.

        Der Kommandant von Kalymnos. Ein Mysterium aus dem Rokoko der Levante. Autograph Letter, signed Manuskript gedruckt. [With:] "Der verirrte böse Hund" [Typescript]

      Venedig [i.e., Vienna: printed for the author by Paul Kaltschmidt], 1926. One of 100 copies, this being no. 79. With two illustrations after drawings by the author. 60 pp., [1] f. (imprint). 1 vols. 8vo. Original lavender cloth, front board titled in gilt. Near fine copy, inscribed by the author on the flyleaf "Herrn Otto S. Kraus gewidmet vom Verfasser. Fritz Herzmanovsky-Orlando. Meran Juni 1952". With 4-Page Typescript Story, 'Der verirrte böse Hund' Rare novella, issued in an edition of just one hundred copies by the Viennese-born author, dramatist, and artist Friedrich (Fritz) von Herzmanovsky-Orlando (1877-1954), long resident in the South Tirol region.With the four-page single-spaced typescript of his comic dramatic sketch entitled "Der verirrte böse Hund", with several manuscript corrections. The piece, written late in Herzmanovsky-Orlando's career, recalls an incident when the author encountered the intransigency of the royal Bavarian bureaucracy while attempting to report a runaway dog in Munich. The story is rich in southern German dialects and comic echoes of a vanished world. The story was published in Sämtliche Werke. Band V. Zwischen Prosa und Drama, edited by Susanna Kirschl-Goldberg (Vienna: Reklam, 1986); the editor notes that the transmission of this story is fragmentary. The Herzmanovsky-Orlando archives in Austria preserve another corrected typescript and its carbon, as well as a partial draft. The present typescript, erratically typed, largely follows the text in the Austrian archive. The 1958 catalogue of a Munich gallery exhibition of Herzmanovsky-Orlando's drawings is also loosely inserted.
