        The World Crisis, 1916-1918, Volumes I & II

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. First U.S. edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. This is a jacketed U.S. first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War. Churchill's history - which he titled "The World Crisis" - was published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. 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. Rather remarkably, he spent part of 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. The events of these two 1916-1918 volumes include Churchill's time at the Front and his return to the Cabinet. Today, jacketed first editions are quite scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so. Charles Scribner's Sons originally issued the 1916-1918 volumes as a two-volume set. This set is in excellent condition, near fine in near fine dust jackets. The maroon, ribbed cloth bindings are simply immaculate as only jacketed copies can be - vividly bright, perfectly square, and showing no discernible wear. The contents remain crisp and bright and feel unread, with no previous ownership marks and no age-toning. The sole minor detraction that prevents our grading the volumes as truly fine is modest spotting to the page edges, mostly confined to the top edges. The dust jackets are entirely complete, with no losses or tears and retaining the original "$10.00 | Two Volumes" front flap prices. The jackets show light soiling, and even toning to the spines. Both dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(III-1&2).a, Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

Overall a nice example of the uncommon jacket.. (#130587). First edition. "One of the most distinctive volumes of American weird fiction, all of which were based on nightmares of the author, a classics teacher in the Baltimore area and a longtime sufferer from migraine ("sick headaches," as he called them) who killed himself after the death of his beloved wife. (He wrote an adoring memoir of her in his 1932 semi- autobiography, Matrimony). White wrote fiction in the summer to supplement his income, his most successful work being the solid but now rather dull works of historical fiction. Another motive, for the stories, was to get them out of his system. All of the stories in this collection have an unforced strangeness to them that is emblematic of their origins. The title story, anthologized twenty-three times according to Ashley and Contento, is fairly well known, but all of the others are worth reading as well. There is nothing else quite like this stuff. It is doubly unusual for its period, when American fiction underwent a divorce between the slicks and the pulps. White's nightmare stories were too grotesque for the slicks, and too "literary" for the pulps. Like the work of many another genius they turned out to be better suited for posterity than for his own time." Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 182.

Top edge stain a bit faded, a fine, bright, unopened copy in nearly. fine printed dust jacket with a bit of light foxing to spine panel. A. stunning copy of a book seldom found in jacket. (#115037). First edition. The author's third and last collection of weird fiction, this one dedicated to Maurice Baring. It includes "Tanhuser and the Gods," one of the finest humorous fantasies, "Winthrop's Adventure," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," and two others, as well as a long, interesting introduction on the sources for the stories. Lee's weird fiction earned the praise of Montague Summers, who equated her talent to that of M. R. James. "Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 256-57. "Marsyas in Flanders" is a "fine antiquarian tale but too early to have been directly influenced by M. R. James (it was written in 1900)." - Pardoe, The James Gang, p. 11.

After careful research we believe this signature to be that of Irish born HARRY PLUNKET GREENE [1865-1936] a baritone singer renown for his formal concert and oratorio repertoire. He made a great contribution to British musical life also by writing and lecturing upon his art, and in the field of competitions and examinations.

'The first eight and the last nine poems in this book are written after the manner of the Negro folk-songs known as Blues. The blues, unlike the Spirituals, have a strict poetic pattern: one long line repeated and a third line to rhyme with the first two. Sometimes the second line in repetition is slightly changed and sometimes, but very seldom, it is omitted. The mood of the blues is almost always despondency, but when they are sung people laugh.' Book - in Very Good paper covered boards with a black cloth spine and paper title label- slight darkening to the patterned paper cover boards, slight rubbing to the extreme corners and slight bumping to the extreme ends of the spine. Contents, some scattered browning and spotting as almost inevitable with this type of paper, light marking to the bottom of pages 34 & 35 NOT affecting the text, rough trimmed page edges which have been carelessly opened resulting in some slight loss to the bottom edge of the occasional page and page 89/90 missing a piece half an inch tall by one and a half inches wide from the bottom page edge, otherwise clean and tightly bound. Overall an interesting and attractive association copy of this scarce collection of poems. Size: 7.75 inches tall by 5.25 inches. 89 [94] rough trimmed pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 200 grams. Category: Poetry; Inventory No: 808006.
