        The World Crisis, full set of 6 British editions, mixed printings

      This is a full, mixed printing set of The World Crisis, comprising Thornton Butterworth volumes issued in 1927 and Macmillan & Co. volumes issued in 1941.  The British first edition of Churchill's history of The First World War was originally published by Thornton Butterworth as six individual books 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 unique position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front; Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty until 1915 and then, after bearing blame for the Dardanelles tragedy, served as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Many consider the British edition, with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page, aesthetically superior to the U.S.  Here is a full set of British mixed printings.  The first four volumes, covering the war years 1911-1918, are all 1927 printings of the British first edition.  1911-1914 is the first edition, seventh printing.  1915 is the first edition, fifth printing.  1916-1918 Part 1 is first edition, second printing.  1916-1918 Part 2 is first edition, fourth printing.   The final two volumes - The Aftermath and The Unknown War - are first edition look-alikes issued by Macmillan, which acquired the rights to several Churchill books after Thornton Butterworth went under in 1940. In 1941, Macmillan issued both The Aftermath and The Unknown War from British first edition plates.  The Unknown War is a quite scarce and collectable edition in its own right; Macmillan issued a single impression of just 600 copies.  Both volumes are similar to their British first edition counterparts and so serve as substitutes when assembling a set.  Overall condition of this set is very good.  All six volumes retain clean and tight original navy cloth bindings with bright spine gilt and quite respectable shelf presentation, with varying degrees of light wear, mostly confined to extremities.  The 1911-1914 and 1915 volumes are notable for exceptionally bright and clean bindings, the 1911-1914 volume bearing transfer browning on the endpapers consistent with dust jacket flaps, indicating that it was likely long protected by its original dust jacket, now lost.  The contents of all six volumes are internally bright.  The sole previous ownership marks in the set are a wartime gift inscription (dated 1945) on the ffep of The Aftermath and a small London bookseller sticker affixed to the front pastedown of the same volume.  Spotting appears confined to the page edges of the first five books with the exception of 1916-1918 Part 1, which shows intermittent internal spotting as well.  The scarcest volume in the set - the Macmillan issue of The Unknown War, is a very good copy.  The binding is square and tight with bright spine gilt, minor wear at extremities, slight wrinkling of the spine cloth, and slight mottling of the cloth at the bottom edge of the front cover.  The contents of The Unknown War show no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind, with age-toning of the page edges.  Please note that this large set may require additional postage.

        (Morte d'Arthur). The Birth, Life and Acts of King Arthur of his Noble Knights of the Round Table, their Marvellous Enquests and Adventures, the Achieving of the San Greal, and in the end, le Morte d'Arthur... The text as... Imprinted by William Caxton at Westminster the Year [1485] and now spelled in modern style,  Embellished with many original designs by Aubrey Beardsley. With an Introduction by Professor John Rhys. And a Note on Aubrey Beardsley by Aymer Vallance.

      (London: J.M. Dent & Co.), 1927.. Third edition thus, one of 1,600 copies, 4to, lv, (i), 538 pp. Frontispiece and one other photogravure plate plus 20 further plates (5 folding) and numerous chapter headings and other illustrations in the text. Modern bookplate to fly leaf, some marking and offsetting to the first and last two leaves from an old protective covering that was held on by tape, some cracking of the paper to the lower hinge. Original gilt decorated black cloth, t.e.g., lower cover with a few marks and a couple of minor abrasions, overall a very good copy. Originally published 1893-4, this was Beardsley's first major work at the age of 22, intended by the publishers to rival the productions of William Morris' Kelmscott Press. Much of the work shows the influence of Burne-Jones and the Pre-Raphaelites but also takes in elements of Japanese prints and his regard for Whistler. "...if [Beardsley] had never illustrated another book... Le Morte d'Arthur could stand as a monument of decorative book illustration... Some of these designs (he never called his drawings illustrations) stand as models of economy, none is impoverished" (Lewis, The 20th Century Book, pp148-9).

        Dear Bee. Loving Letters to a Daughter 1927-1935

      Marshfield Hills, MA. 2012. Artist's book, one of six copies, all on a range of papers, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Viola Kaeumlen. Page size: box of 13 pouches (tied with brown silk ribbon) as envelopes holding the "letters" and related material written by the artist, printed list of contents, box size closed is 5.5 x 7.5 x 2.25 inches. Bound by the artist: two-part box is brown book cloth over boards and adorned with medallion of young woman; box fastened tan silk cord woven through eight holes in the 2 parts of the box, lined with Canson BFK Rives Tan paper. The artist's statement and the colophon explain that the book contains texts of letters written by Mrs. Mary Arthur to her daughter Beatrice Arthur over the period from 1927 - 1935 that were found in an old suitcase by Ms. Kaeumlen in 2010 in flea market on the Boston South Shore. The letters led to an investigation of not only the women concerned but the times in which they lived, with the pertinent information on the times: the Sacco-Vanzetti case, the Lindbergh kidnapping, the Great Depression, local industry (in which Bee's father worked) The Cordage Company, their church in Plymouth where they lived (the first church established by the Mayflower colonists), social welfare programs of the times. Unusual for the times, Beatrice Arthur left her parent's home in Plymouth, MA to attend Salem State College in what was then far-off Salem. Her mother's letters of this eight year period are the very stuff of social history as well as the poignant details of one family's struggle to survive in very hard times. Four of the 13 pouches hold general information about how the letters were found, the history of the family (Mr. Arthur was an immigrant from Scotland), and a conclusion. The other nine pouches are related to one of the years Mary wrote to her daughter. Ms. Kaeumlen was able to locate the family home in Plymouth and learned that Bee had passed away in 2009 at the age of 99, a devoted educator for all of her life. The artist has located family photographs, postcards from the era, paper clippings and greeting cards, all of which were scanned in printed on an archival inkjet printer on a range of papers including Epson Matte, Red River Polar Pearl Metallic, Silver Metallic, Canson Newsprint, Strathmore translucent Vellum and Sennelier Calligraphy paper. The fonts used are Helvetica for Ms. Kaeumlen's own writing and general information texts and Lucida Handwriting for the excerpts of Mary Arthur's letters. This is a beautiful object, redolent of another time when hand-written mail meant significant time lapses in communication and correspondents had expressive and unique hand-writing as well as vocabulary. More than that, the author / artist, Viola Kaeumlen, has taken this remarkably personal correspondence and placed it firmly in a time and place in American social history. with information about health epidemics, social issues - the Arthur's must deal with payment in "scrip" instead of real money, criminal cases of local and national interest, as well as the role of the local church and welfare societies in everyday life. It is as beautiful and meaningful way of learning social history as one could find. Beatrice Arthur, the "Dear Bee" of the letters, is perhaps the prototype of the 20th century woman who earned a bachelor's degree in Business Education and completed post-graduate work at Harvard, Boston University and Bridgewater State College and worked summers in the Plymouth Cooperative Bank, the Plymouth Cordage Company office, and as a civil service secretary in the U.S. government as well as marrying and raising her step-children.

      Longmans Green & Co. New York: Longmans, Green & Co., 1927. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine, lacking the scarce dustwrapper. Cloth. Illustrated with photographs. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front endpaper by Stagg: "To Norris L. Tibbetts,/With the affectionate/regards of/Amos Alonzo Stagg/November 27, 1927." A scarce early inscription before his writing became shaky by one of the most important figures in American sports. Stagg, the first to be elected to the Football Hall of Fame as both player and coach, was active in the sport until the age of 98. He is credited with originating more plays and formations than any other man and, among other developments, is responsible for the forward pass, the huddle, and numbered uniforms. Stagg also invented the indoor batting cage and pioneered the headlong slide in baseball. In addition Stagg participated in the first public basketball game on 11 March 1892, scoring his team's only basket, and the first intercollegiate basketball game on 18 January 1896. He is said to be responsible for the concept of five-man basketball. Of the Grand Old Man of the Game, Knute Rockne once said, "All football comes from Stagg." Tibbets was pastor of Hyde Park Union Church in Chicago.

        Stellungnahme zum "Ablauf des Lebens". Handschriftlicher dreiseitiger Brief an die Redaktion des Berliner Tageblatts, datiert 28.IX.27. [Berlin], 1927. 17,5 x 14,5 cm. Gefaltete Briefkarte.

      Unikat. Der Kampf um die Anerkennung seines wissenschaftlichen Lebenswerks hält Wilhelm Fliess bis zuletzt gefangen. Er antwortet der Redaktion des Berliner Tageblatts, die ihm einen Brief von Prof. Richard Koch aus Frankfurt zugeschickt hatte. Dieser hatte sich kritisch über die Lehren von Fliess geäußert und vor deren Verbreitung gewarnt. Der so Angegriffene zeigt Wirkung und schickt der Redaktion zur Kenntnisnahme eine Abschrift seiner Replik auf Kochs "Warnruf", der die Verbreitung der Ansichten von Fliess als grob fahrlässig kritisierte. Sowohl das Anschreiben an die Redaktion auf der ersten Seite als auch die auf der zweiten und dritten Seite der Faltkarte befindliche Abschrift der Antwort an Koch sind von Ida Fliess geschrieben, ebenso sind nach Urteil von Herrn Prof. Fichtner beide Unterschriften von ihrer Hand. Herr Fichtner gab uns auch den Hinweis darauf, daß Wilhelm Fliess zeitlebens von einer übergroßen Furcht vor der Unlesbarkeit der eigenen Handschrift geplagt wurde, seine Ehefrau übernahm daher fast alle offiziellen Korrespondenzen in seinem Auftrag. Der rechte Seitenrand mit zwei Heftlöchern mit nur einem sehr geringen Textverlust. Ansonsten sehr gut erhalten und sehr selten.
