      Paris : Bibliothèque-Charpentier, 1913. First edition, limited to 175 numbered copies; the present copy is one of 25 printed on papier impérial du Japonwith wide margins (copy no. 15). Tall octavo, original full black morocco, spine with raised bands lettered in gilt, with gilt dentelles at head and tail, all edges gilt, inner boards ruled in triple gilt, crimson silk lining papers, marbled endpapers, 422 pp, a fine copy in the magnificent original binding; housed in a slightly later marbled slipcase. The final novel by the French writer Octave Mirbeau, Dingo was completed by his colleague Léon Werth. The story is a disturbing allegory of the violent unpredictability and murderous impulses that lurk deep within the human psyche, the protagonist being a wild dingo whose existence within contemporary French society is described through the first-person narrative of his owner. The chief redeeming quality of the animal is, however, one that is often lacking in common human behaviour: the dingo's spontaneous interactions with its immmediate environment are instinctive and truthful, neither denying the creature's real desires nor masking its own identity. Mirbeau paints the dingo as a paradox of outward savagery and profound harmony, a depiction which perhaps comes close to inverting our general perception of so-called civilised humanity. No copy of the first edition on papier impérial du Japonis recorded in Australian collections.

        [Photo Album]: YWCA OH! Club - College Women in the Midwest

      Various Midwest locations. mostly 1913-1918. Small oblong octavo. Measuring 8" x 6". Alligator patterned cloth over flexible card. 110 mostly sepia-toned gelatin silver prints. The majority are approximately 4.5" x 2.75" with a few larger. About half are captioned. Small stain on one board, images with a little fading, very good or better, images near fine. The images follow a group of cheerful young women, members of the "Oh! Club" (possibly at Ohio University). The women are shown in large groups starting in 1913 at banquets, at initiations which includes a photo of all the women blindfolded, at a slumber party, a farmer's party, a Christmas party, a "Stag" party, etc. Many of the photos are of the girls traveling as a group to several Midwest locations: the Oh! Camp at Cedar Bluffs, (Nebraska?); at another Oh! Camp at Valley Park, (Missouri?); on a "St. Louis-Mazda Boat Excursion"; north of St. Louis at Chain of Rocks; at "Chautauqua" (which could be one of any number of places). In several of the images the women are dressed as men. The photos are dated through 1917 and show the women delighting in each other's company. There are photos of them in bathing costumes at various Oh! camps, hiking, and posing on a ship. A nice collection of photographs depicting an organization for young women in the early part of the 20th Century. .

      Paris: L'Édition D'Art H. Piazza, 1913. First French Edition DULAC, Edmond, illustrator. POE, Edgar Allan. Les Cloches et Quelques Autres Poemes. Traduits par J. Serruys. Paris: L'Édition D'Art H. Piazza, [1913]. French Limited Edition. One of 400 copies printed on Papier Du Japon. Large quarto (11 5/8 x 9 inches; 295 x 230 mm.). 96, [1 imprint], [1 blank]. 28 color plates with captioned tissue guards. 39 decorated initials, 9 head-pieces and 34 tail-piece designs. Original tan wrappers printed in gilt and rust bound in. Bound ca. 1913 in three-quarter brown morocco over batik boards ruled in gilt. Spine decoratively tooled and lettered in compartments. Top edge gilt. Handmade gold, green and tan endpapers. Housed in the original brown leather edged slipcase. Neat ink inscription on front blank leaf. A fine copy. "Dulac's pictures for The Bells were more uniform in mood and style than groupings for almost any other book of his to this time. Although water colours, they are overstreaked with gilt in some cases, crayon in others, to produce rich haunting effects. Deep shades of blue and a special deep pink-rust predominate throughout...The Outlook, which printed, in black and white, plate 22... commented: '?for the book thinking people will say with grace?sometimes Dulac's pictures are deep-coloured and intense, sometimes dim and ghost-like. But one and all are sensitized to record impressions of unearthly beauty or horror. Only Poe could have written the poems. Only Dulac could have illustrated them.'?Not to be overlooked here are the sophisticated ink drawings Dulac made for headpieces. Although many of the books he illustrated had small ink decorations throughout?he had not worked in this medium so fluently since the days of doing illustrations for The Pall Mall magazine (1906-1908)?As the 10 Bells headpieces show, he had now become truly masterful with his pen" (Hughey).

Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known. In 1907 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and to date he remains its youngest recipient. Among other honours, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he declined. The Bombay edition was initially published in 20 volumes and limited to 1000 copies. Kipling continued to write and it eventually grew to 31 volumes, but the last 11 volumes were limited to 500 copies only. This collection is twenty-two volumes of the original twenty five limited to 1050. With water marks to the endpapers. Condition: In original publishers' half cloth bindings with paper covered boards. Externally, all volumes are generally sound, with only some light rubbing and scattered marks. Spine label is slightly lifting to volume one and thirteen.

        The Interpretation of Dreams - the true first UK edition

      George Allen and Unwin, 1913. Hardcover. Very Good. Freud, Sigmund. THE INTERPRETATION OF DREAMS. London: George Allen, 1913. First English edition. First published in German as 'Die Traumdeutung' in 1899 (but dated 1900), this first English language edition is an "Authorised Translation Of [the] Third Edition with Introduction by A.A. Brill, Ph.B., M.D." The majority of the first edition sheets were bound with a Macmillan cancel title page for issue in America; ours is the original and much scarcer first state with the integral George Allen London-issue title page. Large, heavy octavo, original blue cloth lettered gilt to spine and upper board. Spine a little tanned, with short tears to the head and tail, a bump which has just broken through the cloth near the foot of the spine, and a neatly repaired tear to the bottom inch or so of the right edge; there is rubbing to the edges and extremities and a few marks to the cloth; page edges darkened; previous owner's tiny pencil signature to the top of the ffep; foxed to the first eight or so pages, as, apparently, are most copies. Still present is the publisher's tipped-in label which directs that the sale of the book is "limited to Members of the Medical, Scholastic, Legal, and Clerical professions." A keystone of psychoanalytic theory. Very good. Scarce.

        A Boy's Will

      London: David Nutt,, 1913. Octavo. Originall wrappers, titles in black to front. Housed in a green morocco backed bookform slipcase and chemise. Fine. True first edition of Frost's first published book, later issue but wonderfully inscribed with a poetic quotation: "One had to be versed in country things, Robert Frost, for Crosby Gaige". Crosby Gaige (1882-1949) was a New York based publisher and theatrical impressario, who pioneered in the late 20s the production of fine press collections for living authors (which he described as "flowers for the living" as opposed to "garlands for the dead") such as Woolf (Orlando), Joyce (Anna Livia Plurabella), Sassoon and Hardy. Gaige was also a great epicure and frequenter of New York's finest supper clubs and cocktail lounges, and wrote several books on cookery and cocktails. The poetry collection A Boy's Will was the first published book of Robert Frost - who was then already nearing 40 and, though he had written much, had not found a conducive publisher in America. He had moved to London in 1912, hoping to find the scene more receptive to new poetic voices, and, with the support of F. S. Flint and other sympathetic Imagists such as Ezra Pound, managed to secure a deal with David Nutt, who printed 1,000 copies of A Boy's Will. Only about 350 copies were issued by Nutt, who went bankrupt shortly after the war. Frost in the meantime had returned to America at the outbreak of the war, and, bolstered by his London publication and its rave reviews penned by his Imagist friends, achieved the American beginning of his meteoric poetic career with an edition of A Boy's Will published by Henry Holt in 1915. The c.650 remainder copies of A Boy's Will were later issued in a variety of bindings. This copy is in binding D, with 4-petalled flowers, and "Printed in Great Britain" stamped to title page verso. We are aware of one other copy of this same issue also inscribed for Crosby Gaige, though this copy, with its marvellous invocation of one of Frost's most redolent lines (from "The Need of Being Versed in Country Things", first published in 1920), is certainly superior. A Boy's Will was preceded only by the small collection Twilight, 1894, of which only two copies were printed and only one survives, housed in the University of Virginia. In the same library are to be found two Frost limited editions, New Hampshire and West Running Book, both inscribed to Crosby Gaige.

        1913 Photo Album of a Month-Long Trip to "Camp Welcome", Saw Mill Bay in Prince William Sound, Alaska

      1913. Original wraps. Very Good +. Wonderful album documenting a month-long camping, hunting and fishing trip (started on June 12th, 1913) among several dozen American friends (mostly couples) at "Camp Welcome" in Saw Mill Bay, Prince William Sound, Alaska. Now a popular tourist destination, Saw Mill Bay was clearly very remote at the time (this trip having taken place almost 50 years before Alaska gained statehood) and was chosen by this group for its scenic beauty and seclusion. Dozens of crisp, pasted-in black-and-white photos (most with running captions) capture the group in its various stages of engagement (or non). 2 separate ships ("S.S. Restless" and "Visators Day"), which between them stopped at Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Cordova, Alaska and Valdez, Alaska, delivered the entire group to Camp Welcome by June 12th. We know this because of the "Camp Welcome Visators (sic) Register", a full page listing all of the campers. Preceding this is a full-page menu for June 5th 1913 ("Camp Welcome Grill") and following it is 2 dense, typed pages of fun running commentary by Mr. G. Fawcett and E.W. Hunt. The album is bound in its ribbon-tied, stiff black wrappers and consists of 14 separate pages (all packed with photos and commentary) and a stiff beige re-inforcement at the rear panel. The oblong album (which measures 10 1/4"x7") is clean and crisp and has held up very nicely. This is largely because of the handsome custom-made, oatmeal-cloth box which was designed to house it. The box is tight and Near Fine and even boasts a red-leather title label (with gilt-tooling and lettering) at the spine. And finally, pasted onto the front cover of the album, a neat, typed heading which reads: "'Camp Welcome' Saw Mill Bay, Alaska. June 12th 1913. Here's to 'Camp Welcome', a place of good cheer, For even the 'Restless' must needs tarry here; Since we know that our 'BATH TUB' supplied a long need, We are glad that you used it, in return for the 'FEED'. 'RESTLESS CREW'"

      Universal 1913 - Vintage original 35 x 24" (89 x 61 cm.) poster, Sweden. Jane Gail, Matt Moore, dir: George Loane Tucker; Universal. This was, for its time, an extraordinary film about what was called "the white slave trade," a euphemism for prostitution. It was one of the early features which put the then-fledgling Universal Studios into the consciousness of the ticket-buying public. This remarkable Swedish poster, with its strong Art Nouveau design elements, bears a monogram at left of an as yet unknown artist. Folded, with a few staple holes, NEAR FINE
