New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926., 1926. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Two-tone cloth and pic. boards, xxvi (2) -245 (1)p. "Songs Five" "Long Boy" follows p.246. (3). frontispiece (color) introduction, numerous illustrations by the author. John W. Thomason Jr. was an accomplished artist and author of several books; however, his true lifelong profession was as a Marine Corps officer. He served during WWI in the 49th Company of the 1st Battalion, 5th Regiment. His first combat action came at Belleau Wood. This book, long celebrated as the single finest account of Americans in battle in World War I, is a vivid depiction of US soldiers' lives in and out of battle on the Western Front during the final months of 1918 before the Armistice. The impact of the novel is considerably augmented by the author's numerous sketches and drawings of the soldiers, done contemporaneously on and near the battlefields portrayed in the book. This is not a history book, but an… Read more

Description:
Berlin: Morawe & Scheffelt, 1921. NUMBER ONE OF ONLY TEN SETS OF THIS OUTSTANDING PORTFOLIO OF EXPRESSIONIST ETCHINGS, WITH MANY OF THE ETCHINGS PRINTED ON OLD JAPANESE PAPER. In 1918 German novelist Hans Bethge wrote "Satuila oder vom Zauber der Suedsee" ("Satuila or the Enchantment of the South Sea"), the story of a young woman in Samoa. It is a sensual, escapist tale: the situation in Germany was quite terrible after the defeat in WWI, and there was great demand for escapism. This novel was a hit, and a deluxe edition, with 6 original etchings by German Expressionist artist Georg Alexander Mathey, was published in Berlin in 1921. The etchings are extremely beautiful, perfectly capturing the lush sensuality of the landscape and the unabashed sexuality of the characters (similar to the depictions of Gypsies by Otto Mueller, from about the same time). This edition of the novel was limited to 250 copies. Aside from the book edition, 10 sets of the etchings were printed, with large margins. In… Read more

London: Jonathan Cape, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +/good +. First issue (see details below), octavo size, 448 pp., in publisher's dust jacket. Robert von Ranke Graves (1895-1985) was born into a literary family and showed literary genius from a young age. Although the horrors of "The Great War" and subsequent difficulties had a devastating effect on him, he would write almost his entire life, producing more than 135 books including the popular "I, Claudius" and, in addition to earning many awards, was presented by Queen Elizabeth with her gold medal for poetry. This work made Graves famous; it has been called "a searing work of genius in which [he] offers up a heavily rewritten version of his past life upon the altar of his present love." The first issue, of which this copy is one, includes the short passage on p. 290 and a poem by Siegfried Sassoon on pages 341 to 343; these two sections were expurgated from all future printings. Per the bibliography, it is estimated that only… Read more

Chicago: The John C. Winston Company, 1940. Near fine in very good jacket. First printing of the children's book about a heroic collie, adapted into a series of beloved films and television shows beginning in 1943. Knight's collie dog Lassie first appeared in a story for THE SATURDAY EVENING POST in 1938, based upon a love for the collies Knight and his wife raised on their Bucks Country, Pennsylvania farm. This expanded book about the character was published just before the United States entered World War II, when WWI-veteran Knight enlisted to serve in the US Army Special Services. In 1943, the year the first Lassie film was released, Knight was killed in an air crash. This first edition was illustrated by Marguerite Kirmse, who was famous for her etchings of dogs, depicting them "with an understanding and originality seldom found in other artists' work" (rear flap). The first book in a larger epic story of audiences' love affair with the sweet dog Lassie. 8.5'' x 6''. Original bright orange… Read more
