Description:
A Four Volume set of 'Parades End'. ALL are the First UK Printings published by Duckworth between 1924-28. Vol.1 : 'SOME DO NOT' (published 1924), in olive green cloth with white lettering. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. Pushing to the spine ends and light bumping to the corners. Fading of colouring to the spine and the white lettering but sill legible. Minor rubbing to the edges in a few places. Text-block lightly toned and spotted. Light offsetting and spotting to the endpapers and prelims. Light spotting to the page edges in places. The binding remains tight. Free from inscriptions. No wrapper present. David Dow Harvey's bibliography does not mention a wrapper until under the reprints for the same year as the first impression. It is unclear as to whether the first state was actually issued with a wrapper as the reprint wrapper's price was the same price as the first issue of 7/6 net. An extremely scarce title to find in any condition. Vol. 2 : 'NO MORE PARADES' (published 1925). The BOOK and… Read more

Description:
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,… Read more

The first of two children's books on the war by Schaller(both written and illustrated by her, and both published during the war. The story depicts Boby, his two sisters, and the neighborhood children acting out the first few months of the WWI. On rocking horse, enlisting his toy soldiers, ally to Belgians. One illustration, anticipating Surrealism, enacts the battle of Liege. The Belgian army, tiny black figures less than one inch high, wages a futile assault on a pair of Prussian boots that dominate the entire landscape and sky.

First German edition. 8vo.; brown paper over brown cloth boards, 304 pp. With Adolf Hitler's bookplate to front pastedown, at the bottom of which a previous owner has inexplicably penciled "Cristallnacht [sic], 9 Nov 1938." INSCRIBED by the author on the ffep, "Dem Führer in Verehrung / vom Verfasser das deutsch Ausgabe (roughly: "The Führer in admiration / from the author of this German edition"). Some minor fraying to cloth at joints; browning to cheap paper, a VG+ copy. A baker's dozen of this edition located in WorldCat (12 in German institutions). An outwardly unremarkable title from Adolf Hitler's personal library, but one actually teeming with significance and interesting historical connections. The title is the sole German edition of J. Ellis Barker's Cancer: How It Is Caused, How It Can Be Cured (1924), a homeopathic lay approach to the disease, which was mostly panned by the medical establishment. But homeopathy… Read more

Description:
Chatto and Windus, London, 1938. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/No jacket. "Death on the Installment Plan' is a companion to 'Journey to the End of Night'. Published in rapid succession in the middle 1930s, these two books shocked European literature and world consciousness. Nominally fiction but more rightly called 'creative confessions,' they told of the author's childhood in excoriating Paris slums, of service in the mud wastes of World War I and African jungles. Mixing unmitigated despair with Gargantuan comedy, they also created a new style, in which invective and obscenity were laced with phrases of unforgettable poetry. Celine's influence revolutionized the contemporary approach to fiction. Under a cloud for a period, his work is now acknowledged as the forerunner of today's 'black humor.' [Pub. Info] Expertly rebound; paper fine, covers fine, 1ST UK EDITION, 1ST PRINTING.

Description:
London: Hutchinson. Hardcover. B001TAHD7S [4], 5-254, [2], 8 [ads], pages. This portion of Carr's life story begins after his experience as a submariner in WWI. He serves as an officer of the Mercantile Marine and experiences incredible adventures and hardships before deciding to move his young family from England to New Brunswick. Times are tough in his new land. He describes the local poverty and exposes the awful social problems of rural New Brunswick, as well as his dramatic adventures at work, with a local trapper and as a member of the C.P.R. police. In short, Carr was a man's man and this book is full of manly adventures. Later in life, Carr [1895-1959] became very concerned about what he viewed as plans for world government and wrote Pawns in the Game and Red Fog Over America, books which sold by the hundreds of thousand. The present work is vital in understanding the background and motivations of this fascinating man. Above-average wear to publisher's black cloth. Binding… Read more
