[Barre, VT]. 1913. [Mounted Photographs] EARLY AMERICAN SOCCER TEAM, winners of the Vermont League and the 5-A-Side Champions of Vermont in 1913. Four mounted black and white photographs. Three photographs of the fourteen team members, as well as trainer, secretary and mascot, each in different attire. One photo of the five-a-side team, with trainer. Two large photographs (43cm; 64cm with mount), one medium (31cm, 46cm with mount), and one small (31cm, 39cm with mount). The three larger photographs have titles printed to the mounts; two list the names of the team members. The smaller mount has glue stains to edges and reverse. Contained within the boards of a nineteenth century folio-sized atlas. All mounts bumped and rubbed to edges. Atlas boards heavily battered. A few small marks and blooming to photographs. Good. A rare collection of photographs documenting the winning team of the Vermont soccer league in 1913, the same year of the formation of the United States Football Association (now U.S. Soccer) and its entry into FIFA. The first president of USFA was G. Randolph Manning, an Anglo-German migrant to the USA who was also influential in the popularisation of Association Football in Germany. The winning Vermont team here pictured was reportedly made up largely from Aberdonians who had migrated to Barre from Scotland to work in the granite quarries. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

WG² 14. - Nach mehreren abgebrochenen Studien und der ebenfalls nicht beendeten Buchhändlerlehre kovertierte Peter Altenberg (eigentlich Peter Engländer 1859-1919) zum Christentum und verbrachte nach kurzem Aufenthalt in München sein restliches Leben in Wiener Kaffeehäusern. Befreundet mit Adolf Loos und Karl Kraus verdingte sich Altenberg als Gelegenheitskünstler, die Zeit als Bohemien und stadtbekanntes Unikat immer wieder unterbrochen vom Aufenthalt in Alkoholentzugskliniken und Nervenheilanstalten. Die meist kurzen Prosaskizzen und -gedichte entfalten durch ihre ungeplante Komplexität eine oft widersprüchliche Vielfalt und gelten als wichtige Beiträge des literarischen Impressionismus. - Handschriftliche und datierte Widmung Altenbergs an die berühmte Puppenkünstlerin, Kostümbildnerin und Zeichnerin der Münchner Bohème, Lotte Pritzel, in Tinte auf dem Vorsatz (" 'Es ist leichter, auf sie zu verzichten als, wenn sie sich bückt, nicht die Hand … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spine ends worn with short splits (0.5 cm or less) to base of joints; slight creasing near head and tail of spine. Corners bumped (especially on the front board which shows some rippling to the surrounding cloth); corners also worn with 2 cm split to cloth along fore-edge of the front board. Spine a bit cocked. Cloth is a trifle dull and shows several light spots. Pictorial bookplate of previous owner with Moroccan theme on front pastedown. Title leaf slightly pulled at base; book is over-opened between dedication and contents leaves, but holding firmly; hinges are intact. Scattered foxing to prelims and first few leaves; occasional marginal foxing elsewhere and a few traces of marginal soiling; short (0.5 cm) tear to base of one leaf; minuscule tears to several leaves at fore-edge. Still a good copy. FIRST EDITION. Early and perhaps the first issue, with a dated, cancel title page. Roberts gave this issue priority (calling it the first of three "variants.") Schwartz identifies this as a second issue, giving priority instead to copies with undated, integral title pages. Roberts notes that review copies have been found with both of these variants of the title page and suggests that Schwartz may indeed be correct. However, both bibliographers agree that copies with integral, dated title pages were issued later. Roberts and Poplawski (3rd. ed.) A4. Schwartz, "1,100 Obscure Points," p. 27.
