        Woodrow Wilson Signed Portrait.

      Limited edition engraving by artist Frederick Reynolds, signed by both the artist and Woodrow Wilson, one of 300 numbered. Matted and framed. The entire piece measures 19.5 inches by 24 inches. In near fine condition. Rare and desirable. Woodrow Wilson was an American politician and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. Born in Staunton, Virginia, he spent his early years in Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina. Wilson earned a PhD in political science at Johns Hopkins University, and served as a professor at various institutions before being selected as President of Princeton University, a position he held from 1902 to 1910. In 1910, he was the New Jersey Democratic Party's gubernatorial candidate and was elected the 34th Governor of New Jersey, serving from 1911 to 1913. In the 1912 presidential election, Wilson benefited from a split in the Republican Party to win the presidency, gaining a large majority in the Electoral College and a 42% plurality of the popular vote in a four-candidate field. He was the first Southerner elected as president since Zachary Taylor in 1848, and Wilson was a leading force in the Progressive Movement, bolstered by his Democratic Party's winning control of both the White House and Congress in 1912. While in office, Wilson reintroduced the spoken State of the Union, which had been out of use since 1801. Leading the Congress that was now in Democratic hands, he oversaw the passage of progressive legislative policies unparalleled until the New Deal in 1933. The Federal Reserve Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, the Clayton Antitrust Act, and the Federal Farm Loan Act were some of these new policies. Having taken office one month after ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment, Wilson called a special session of Congress, whose work culminated in the Revenue Act of 1913, introducing an income tax and lowering tariffs. Through passage of the Adamson Act that imposed an 8-hour workday for railroads, he averted a railroad strike and an ensuing economic crisis.[3] Upon the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Wilson maintained a policy of neutrality, while pursuing a more aggressive policy in dealing with Mexico's civil war. Wilson faced former New York Governor Charles Evans Hughes in the presidential election of 1916. By a narrow margin, he became the first Democrat since Andrew Jackson elected to two consecutive terms. Wilson's second term was dominated by American entry into World War I. In April 1917, when Germany had resumed unrestricted submarine warfare and sent the Zimmermann Telegram, Wilson asked Congress to declare war in order to make "the world safe for democracy." The United States conducted military operations alongside the Allies, although without a formal alliance. During the war, Wilson focused on diplomacy and financial considerations, leaving military strategy to the generals, especially General John J. Pershing. Loaning billions of dollars to Britain, France, and other Allies, the United States aided their finance of the war effort. Through the Selective Service Act, conscription sent 10,000 freshly trained soldiers to France per day by the summer of 1918. On the home front, he raised income taxes, borrowing billions of dollars through the public's purchase of Liberty Bonds. He set up the War Industries Board, promoted labor union cooperation, regulating agriculture and food production through the Lever Act, and granting to the Secretary of the Treasury, William McAdoo, direct control of the nation's railroad system. In his 1915 State of the Union Address, Wilson asked Congress for what became the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918, suppressing anti-draft activists. The crackdown was intensified by his Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer to include expulsion of non-citizen radicals during the First Red Scare of 1919-1920. Following years of advocacy for suffrage on the state level, in 1918 he endorsed the Nineteenth Amendment, whose ratification in 1920 provided an equal right to vote for women across the United States, over Southern opposition. Wilson staffed his government with Southern Democrats who believed in racial segregation. He gave department heads greater autonomy in their management. Early in 1918, he issued his principles for peace, the Fourteen Points, and in 1919, following armistice, he traveled to Paris, promoting the formation of a League of Nations, and concluding the Treaty of Versailles. Following his return from Europe, Wilson embarked on a nationwide tour in 1919 to campaign for the treaty, suffering a severe stroke. The treaty was met with serious concern by Senate Republicans, and Wilson rejected a compromise effort led by Henry Cabot Lodge, leading to the Senate's rejection of the treaty. Due to his stroke, Wilson secluded himself in the White House, disability having diminished his power and influence. Forming a strategy for re-election, Wilson deadlocked the 1920 Democratic National Convention, but his bid for a third-term nomination was overlooked. For his sponsorship of the League of Nations, Wilson was awarded the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize, the second of three sitting presidents so honored.

        The Day in Bohemia or Life Among the Artists

      New York: Printed for the Author. 1913. First. First edition. Octavo. 48pp. Stiff flexible printed self-wrappers. Title in black and red. Small tears at the edges of the slightly yapped edges, small tear on the half-title, small chip at the foot, a very good copy, lacking the original slipcase. One of 500 copies printed at the Hillacre Press. Reed's first work published in book form. A long poem set amongst the artistic set of New York. This copy Inscribed by Reed to Albert Boyden: "To Alb Boyden with apologies and compliments of the author John S. Reed." Boyden was the managing editor at McClure's Magazine, one of the great publications of the so-called Golden Age of Magazines, and the pinnacle of muckraking journalism, where Reed worked alongside of Lincoln Steffens (to whom the book is dedicated), McClure's co-founder Ida Tarbell, John Phillips, William Allen White, and other notables. All of them appear in Reed's picaresque and affectionate satire of the literati of Greenwich Village and their eating and drinking habits and haunts. Boyden figures prominently:"Here comes ALB BOYDEN in the King of ShirtsHe is so fashionable that it hurts.Indeed, in gazing on him one suspectsThat clothes can vanquish physical defects.So cavalier his air, who would not be him?Young ladies come from Illinois to see him!The rest of us are good at so-and-so,-But ALB's the one who makes the wheels go.He beats down struggling authors in their price,Refuses stories with a grace so nice..."[Cataloger's note: while Reed's reportage achieved him lasting fame, his poetry seems more to presage the verse of Dr. Suess.]Boyden appears elsewhere as a subject in the poem as well.Ida Tarbell later wrote of the atmosphere at McClure's: "Was there ever a group like it? Was there ever so much fun in work?" - a sentiment that seems confirmed in Reed facetious poem. Reed's radicalism was seeded in his tenure at McClure's. Not long after this poem was published, he joined the staff of The Masses.A significant association. .

        Original silver bromide photographic portrait of John Singer Sargent's celebrated portrait of Henry James, 10 1/2 x 13 inches (image), 15 x 18 3/4 inches (image & mount), signed on the mount by both James and Sargent

      Sargent's original portrait of James was commissioned by James's friends to commemorate his 70th birthday in 1913. James would not accept the gift, but agreed to act as its "custodian" on the condition, specified in his will, that it be given to the National Portrait Gallery in London, where it now hangs. A photographic reproduction of the portrait, printed in an edition of 300 copies signed by the subject and artist, was produced for the subscribers. According to James' biographer, Leon Edel, "(James) arranged for all of them to receive a photograph of the Sargent portrait signed on the left by Sargent and on the right by himself. Sargent's name has all but faded from such of these as survive; but James's name, with its customary largeness and boldness, remains visible." - Leon Edel, The Master 1901-1916 (London: Rupert Hart Davis, 1972), p. 490. The signatures in the present example, however, show little sign of fading. James met Sargent in 1883, and the two men became close friends. Edel notes that "They had so much in common that they must have seemed to each other, in certain respects, to be mirror-images." - Edel, The Middle Years 1884-1894, pp. 45-46. James admired Sargent enormously, saying of him that he presented "'the slightly 'uncanny' spectacle of a talent which on the very threshold of its career has nothing more to learn" and that "he expresses himself as no one else scarce begins to do in the language of the art he practises." The present commemorative photographic reproduction of Sargent's iconic portrait of James, signed by the two friends, is rare

        On the Effect of Electric and Magnetic Fields on Spectral Lines. [Off-print From the Philosophical Magazine (Vol. 27) for March 1914].

      [London, Taylor & Francis], 1913. 8vo. Original printed wrappers. Excellent, very fresh copy, with only a two small marginal tears to front wrapper, no loss. Spine and cords completely fresh and fully intact. Pp. (1) +506-525. Scarce first edition, off-print issue with presentation-inscription, of Bohr's first paper on the Stark-effect, being the seminal paper in which Bohr for the first time applies his theory to electric effect and expresses his widening interest in quantum theory. The work is inscribed to the famous Danish physicist "Hr. Mag. scient. A.W. Marke/ med venlig Hilsen/ fra Forfatteren" ("Mr. Master of Sciences A.W. Marke/ with kind regards/ from the author"). Axel Waldbuhm Marke (1883 - 1942) was professor of Physics in Copenhagen. His scientific works were originally centred around magnetic investigations, for which he was trained by P. Weiss in Zürich, in 1914. Due to WWI, he had to return, however, and during the difficult journey back, he lost all of his records. In 1916 he published an important work on the thermomagnetic qualities of water, and he has written a number of highly praised text books on physics, optics, meteorology, and climatology. He was renowned for his great skills in popularizing difficult scientific results and was famous for his lectures. The Stark-effect (the shifting and splitting of spectral lines of atoms and molecules due to presence of an external static electric field) is named after Johannes Stark, who discovered it in 1913. Although Stark shortly after having discovered it became and ally of Nazi Germany and rejected the developments of modern physics, his discovery became of the utmost importance to the development of quantum theory."Once again we must go back to November 1913. On the 20th of that month Stark announced to the Prussian Academy of Sciences an important new discovery: when atomic hydrogen is exposed to a static electric field its spectral lines split, the amount of splitting being proportional to the field strength. (the linear Stak effect). After Rutherford read this news in "Nature", he at once wrote Bohr: "I think it is rather up to you at the present to write something on... electric effects."We now encounter for the first time the widening interest in quantum theory [...] Even before Bohr sat down to work on the Stark effect, Warburg from Berlin published an article in which the Bohr theory is applied to this new phenomenon. Bohr's own paper [i.e. the present] on the subject appeared in March 1914. The next year he returned to the same topic." (Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, p. 182). Rosenfeld: No. 10.

The poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of the themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings..."

        The Tale of Pigling Bland

      London: Frederick Warne & Co.,, 1913. Sextodecimo. Original red paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front board in white, pictorial label to front board, illustrated endpapers. Housed in a custom red cloth solander box. With 15 colour plates and illustrations to text by the author. Some discolouration to spine and front cover; an excellent copy. First edition. This was the last book written before Potter's marriage to William Heelis. With her marriage and the outbreak of the First World War, Beatrix's focus increasingly turned from the Peter Rabbit series to farming. Her failing eyesight and farming duties made more onerous by the onset of war meant that she would not produce another book until 1917. The first two impressions are indistinguishable.
