Maugham in WWI British Intelligence. A collection of stories based on the author's experiences during a year's service in Switzerland for British Intelligence during WWI, and upon the accounts of others. Not included were fourteen stories that were so close to the truth that, Maugham's biographer notes, he destroyed them "after Winston Churchill had seen the manuscripts and informed him that they violated the Official Secrets Act." The book that makes Maugham rank alongside Erskine Childers and John Buchan as the originator of espionage fiction. There are echoes of Maugham in John Le Carré's focus on the manipulative side of espionage, and in Ian Fleming's accounts of James Bond's dealings with M. ONE OF MAUGHAM'S MOST DESIRABLE TITLES.

        JEAN LORRAIN INTIME

      Paris, Albin Michel, s.d 1928 - Georges NORMANDY JEAN LORRAIN INTIME. Paris, Albin Michel, s.d. (1928) 1 fort volume in-4 (24,5 x 19,5 cm), broché de (6)-252-(1) pages. Couvertures rempliée en papier saumon avec étiquette de titre contrecollée sur le premier plat. Excellent état, dos passé, petites manques de papier au bas du dos, petite fente au mors. Volume solidement broché. Intérieur très frais imprimé sur beau papier. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. TIRAGE A 330 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, EXEMPLAIRE HORS COMMERCE SUR VERGÉ D'ARCHES. Le détail du tirage est le suivant : 10 exemplaires sur Japon impérial ; 20 exemplaires sur Hollande Van Gelder et 300 exemplaires sur vergé d'Arches. Le nombre d'exemplaires hors commerce n'est pas précisé mais il a dû être limité à quelques exemplaires seulement réservés aux amis de l'auteur. EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE OFFERT A OCTAVE UZANNE. "A mon cher maître et ami Octave Uzanne, hommage d'admiration et souvenir très affectueux de son fidèlement dévoué, Georges Normandy" (envoi autographe à l'encre violette sur le faux-titre). Biographie la plus complète à cette date de Jean Lorrain par son admirateur le plus zélé. Octave Uzanne, à qui ce volume est offert, ami proche de Jean Lorrain, a dû apporter son aide à la rédaction de ses "souvenirs intimes". Le volume est richement illustré de nombreux documents autographes, photographies, etc. Georges Normandy et Octave Uzanne ont été en relation dès les premières années du siècle. Alors que Georges Normandy s'attacha dès 1907 à cultiver la mémoire de Jean Lorrain disparu, Uzanne de son côté, rassemble en quelques traits et souvenirs, de quoi publier de manière confidentielle, un petit volume intitulé Jean Lorrain, L'artiste - L'ami, Souvenirs intimes. Lettres inédites. Cette petite plaquette de 65 pages sort des presses en mars 1913. Elle n'a été imprimée qu'à 80 exemplaires. Or, sur un exemplaire de ce livre offert par Uzanne au journaliste Ernest Leblanc, il écrit le 16 mai 1914 : « à Ernest Leblanc qui connut et apprécia Jean Lorrain, cette ébauche d'un portrait que je compte développer en grandeur nature. Amical souvenir. » Uzanne prévoyait donc de donner une étude bien plus approfondie et complète sur son ami Jean Lorrain. Changement de situation, imprévus peut-être liés à la santé très fragile d'Octave Uzanne pendant les 20 dernières années de sa vie. Quoi qu'il en soit le projet ne vit pas le jour. Uzanne ne donna jamais à l'impression un livre complet sur Jean Lorrain. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Commander Arthur Guy Norris Wyatt writes to his friend Fitzroy thanking him for the loan of the book, and remarking "sorry to hear that you are not returning to this delightful locality. Tho' I don't suppose that you are much upset", before going on to comment on recent events: "We have had a good deal of fuss here with the Sheikh of Khasab [Oman] since you left but have at least managed to get the job done. I expect Master Khasab will receive a shell or two on his village before long". The sheikh had imprisoned sultan Taimur's wali, or magistrate, there and was refusing to recognise Taimur's authority, and was indeed shelled for his pains, fleeing, but returning shortly to accept Muscati rule when he was unable to obtain tribal support (see Allen, Oman: the Modernisation of the Sultanate, p.62).

        Armenia and the Near East.

      London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd,, 1928. Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 16 other monochrome plates from photographs, folding map, head-piece, plans to the text. Price-clipped jacket with slight loss at head and tail of spine, a couple of closed-tears to front panel, peripheral light creasing, touch of foxing to fore edge, yet still an excellent copy. First edition in English, first impression, originally published in Norwegian in the previous year; copies in the dust jacket are very scarce. Armenia and the Near East relates to Nansen's last, and perhaps most problematic humanitarian effort on behalf of the League of Nations, the attempt to save the refugee remnant of the Armenian people, and the establishment of a homeland for them within Soviet Armenia. The plan was never implemented, but the Nansen International Office for Refugees later settled some 10,000 in Erivan and 40,000 in Syria and Lebanon.

        Ha mahar: dukhan le-milhemet ha idehot (Tomorrow: A Stand In the War of Ideas)

      Tel-Aviv: Lev-Hadash; New York: Yehudah 1928 - (Tomorrow: a stand in the war of ideas) Quarto 23.5x16 cm., wrappers, Issues 1, 3, 7–10. Six 32-page issues. Illustrated wrappers signed by Pesach Ir-Shai, with the motto “Hofesh ha-davor ainu rashot 'ala Huvah” (“searching for speech is not elective but mandatory”). The majority of the texts (both prose and poetry) appears to be by Hameiri. Avigador Hameiri was born in Hungary and served in the Austrian army during World War I. He was captured in 1916 by the Russians, but was released following the Revolution, and emigrated to Palestine in 1921, where he worked on the Ha-aretz newspaper. Pesach Irshai (born István Irsai in Budapest) studied architecture but became a painter and graphic designer. He designed a sans serif Hebrew typeface, which may be the one used in the “Apologies” section of each issue. This journal ceased publication in 1940. OCLC locates individual copies at OSU, Stanford, UT Austin, and Yale. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
