Description:
Jünger's memoirs of the conflict are ajudged, transcendent of allegiance, among the greatest soldier-accounts of the Great War; in the contemporary assessment of Cyril Falls, 'there is in [them] [...] little of the personal modesty which is to be found in most British narratives of men who have done exceptionally well, but they are written with 'extraordinary zest and power' ('War Books', p. 209) and offer an insight into the sense of duty compelling what Mottram describes in his Introduction to 'The Storm of Steel' as this 'high-minded devotee of personal combat'. The earlier book gives the greatest emphasis to action, whilst the second gives enhanced consideration to the philosophy of the soldier under fire.Both books are uncommon in the dustjacket, and the present copies form an attractive pair.Second volume with frontispiece photograph, the first volume with a few faint spots to prelims, recurrent at rear, small pen-mark to margin of one page in second volume.

(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

Basrah: Printed by E. G. Pearson at the Times Press, Bombay, and published by the Superintendent, Government Press, Basrah, 1917. First edition. Hardcover. The Arab of Mesopotamia was published in Basrah in 1917 to inform British imperial considerations in the Middle East during and after the First World War. The author, Gertrude Lowthian Bell (1868-1926) was the intriguing and influential adventurer, scholar, writer, and diplomat who, like her contemporary T. E. Lawrence of Arabia, did much to frame and shape the Middle East during and after the First World War. Without doubt this particular copy informed British officialdom; this copy originally belonged to the British War Office Library.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +/fair. 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 the letter to Graves in rhyming form by Siegfried Sassoon on pages 341 to 343; these two sections were expurgated from all future printings. Per the bibliography, it… Read More
