MASEFIELD, JOHN
Gallipoli
London, William Heinemann, July, 1918. later printing. Hardcover. pp. viii, 183. Small 8vo. Bound in original red cloth, lettered in black. Maps, black-and-white photos. The bottom edges of the boards of this copy are bumped, and there is light shelf wear. The contents are clean: a good plus, to very good, copy in the scarce original dust jacket (now with tape remains at folds, some closed tears and chipping, else fairly good condition). John Edward Masefield (1878-1967) was England's second longest-serving Poet Laureate (after Tennyson). At the outbreak of the First World War Masefield, at 36, was old to enough to claim an exemption from military service but chose, instead, to volunteer as a medical orderly at the Western Front. After his tour of duty was finished, he obtained the support of the British government to write a report on the failed Dardanelles Campaign, in which the Allied forces suffered 300,000 casulties and 100,000 deaths, attempting to force their way through the Turkish lines to establish a supply route for the beleagured Russian forces. The campaign was a dismal failure and a severe blow to British morale. Masefield's response was this book, which ameliorated to some extent the despair of the citizenry. Our copy carries an interesting provenance, bearing as it does the inscription: ''Ralph Connor' from R. O. [undecipherable last name] (A.I.F) / in appreciation of right good fellowship on the 'Lapland' - Dec. 1918 / London / 30/12/18.'. Connor, of course, was the pseudonym of the famous Canadian authur Charles W. Gordon. (The 'Lapland' was the White Star ocean liner which, presumably, carried the two in December of 1918).

ARLEIGH BURKE / GORDON MCLINTOCK
De-Classified Copies of Documents on the Naval Battles Off Cape St. George and Empress Augusta Bay, November, 1943
Department of the Navy, 1943 (1984).,Vice Adm. Gordon McLintock served as Superintendant of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, at Kings Point, NY, from 1948 to 1970. He was a naval historian, with a strong interest in the military career of Adm. Arleigh ('31-knot') Burke. Our offering consist of three items: (1) a photostatic copy of an ALS dated Nov. 19, 1984, from Adm, McLintock to Frank Uhlig, the editor of the Naval War College Review, following-up on McLintock's request for the 'critique of Admiral Burke's action off Cape St. George' (referencing the Battle of Cape St. George, fought off the southernmost tip of the island of New Ireland, part of Papua New Guinea, on November 26, 1943). (2) Mr. Uhlig's TLS reply, dated December 11, 1984, in which he says: 'Here is everything we have been able to find on the battles of Cape St. George and Empress Augusta Bay, in both of which Arleigh Burke participated as ComDesRon 23 (commander of destroyer corps 23)'. This includes a track chart of Empress Augusta Bay, a copy of a report from ComDesRon 23 to CinC First Fleet on the action off Cape St. George and Nauru Island, the Battle Experience bulletin on Cape St. George and Nauru Island and, lastly, the Combat Narrative for the Bougainville Landing and the Battle of Empress Augusta Bay. The documents referenced in Uhlig's letter form item (3) of this offering. The Battle Experience bulletin is a 28-page photostat, the track chart is also a copy, and the report and narrative are quite large photostatic copies of uneven quality (of reproduction). Ill.: maps, charts.
