Hoskier, Herman Charles
Bernard Quaritch, London, 1914. Quarto (10 x 6 1/2"). [4], xv, [1], 497, [1]pp (Vol. 1); [4], 412pp (Vol. 2). Modern green cloth with gold lettering to spines. The author of this book, Herman Charles Hoskier (1864-1938), was a biblical scholar, and British textual critic. Hoskier, as textual critic, generally but not entirely supported the Byzantine text-type against the Alexandrian text-type. In "Codex B and It Allies," Hoskier compared the text of Codex Vaticanus with Codex Sinaiticus, and showed how many significant disagreements the best witnesses of the Alexandrian text have. He attempted to demonstrate that Vaticanus presents a text which has been conformed to the Coptic versions. Hoskier compared text of the Minuscule 700 with the Textus Receptus and exhibits 2724 differences. Ex-library bookplate on inside of each front cover, and pocket on inside of back covers. Ex-library stamp to top and bottom edges. Minor to moderate soiling to front cover of first volume. Bindings and interior in good+ to very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

1914. Voir la description. Micheline Auteur : G. de B. Éditeur : Mon livre secret... Date : ND (année 30) (copyright ND)Édition publiée clandestinement Résumé du livre : Roman érotique, pornographique. Ce roman nous conte, à travers un grand nombre de scènes plus scabreuses les unes que les autres, l'éducation sexuelle de la jeune Micheline, depuis ses 12 ans et durant les 4 années de la Grand Guerre entre 1914 et 1918. Les observations qu'elle a pu faire de sa mère prise en flagrant délit de plaisirs partagés avec la soldatesque, de sa tante, tout aussi délurée. Ses initiations au plaisir avec tirailleurs noirs et autres poilus . "Excité au plus haut degré par ce spectacle le troisième gars ne put attendre davantage, deux corps qui s'agitaient et sa queue raidie vint se planter entre les deux fesses de ma tante, sur laquelle il se coucha, il donna deux ou trois coups de reins, j'entendis celle-ci pousser un cri de douleur, puis plus rien que des halètements, des soupirs et trois corps qui ondulaient les uns sur les autres. Je ne pus en voir davantage, cette scène m'avait mis moi-même dans un tel état d'énervement que je m'empressai de monter dans ma chambre et de me déshabiller, à peine étais-je au lit que je mis mon doigt où vous pensez et me mis à frotter mon bouton furieusement jusqu'à ce qu'une lassitude extrême m'étourdit."

1914. Condition: Bon état. Livre en bon état, voir photos. 14-18La guerre des affichesPar Patrick Facon. Un jour d'été 1914, les panonceaux publicitaires pour les plages de Cabourg ou le Bouillon Duval cèdent la place à une affichette multicolore qui annonce la mobilisation générale. Dès lors, en France et dans tous les pays en guerre, sur les frontons et les façades, la propagande remplace la réclame. L'Affiche, facilement contrôlable, devient le mode d'expression favori des gouvernements.. Quel que soit le pays elle remplit la même mission : convaincre du bien-fondé des sacrifices demandés, rassurer, galvaniser le peuple, l'inciter à soutenir les organisations caritatives et souscrire pour la Défense Nationale. Les plus grands affichistes de l'époque s'engagent dans cette vaste entreprise de propagande et produisent des milliers d'œuvres qui constituent aujourd'hui un témoignage inestimable sur ces Années Terribles. Ce livre rassemble les plus belles et les plus parlantes d'entre-elles. Elles proviennent de tous les pays en guerre, de France et d'Allemagne, mais aussi des Etats-Unis, d'Autriche et de tous les pays alliés (Canada, Royaume-Uni, Italie). Souvent lyriques et baroques, parfois cocasses ou simplement sublimes, elles racontent les grandes heures du conflit et la vie à l'arrière. 192 pages Editeur : Editions ATLAS (9 octobre 2013) Collection : Histoire Langue : Français ISBN-10: 2723497208 ISBN-13: 978-2723497206 Dimensions du produit: 24 x 2,4 x 32 cm.

1914. <b>Guido Podrecca and Gabrielle Galantara. <i>L'ASINO È IL POPOLO: UTILE, PAZIENTE E BASTONATO. </i></b>Roma: Via del Tritone, 132, Anno XXIII, N. 33, 16 Agosto 1914 - No. 52, 27 Dicembre 1914; Anno XXIV, N. 1, 3 Gennaio 1915 - N. 33, 15 Agosto 1915. Year XXIV numbers 18 - 33 were printed on Via Principe Umberto, 46, Roma. Fifty-three consecutive issues are offered here. Each copy measures 37 cm x 27 cm, 8 pages, front and back covers are full-page color illustrations signed "Rata Langa" by Gabrielle Galantara (1865-1937) the principal cartoonist for <i>L'Asino</i>. Started in Rome by Guido Podrecca, as an anarchist publication, this weekly was shut down by the Italian Fascist Party in 1925, when its founder, Podrecca, converted to fascism. The motto on the masthead, "L'ASINO È IL POPOLO: UTILE, PAZIENTE E BASTONATO" described not only the intended readership but also the plight of the long-suffering common man: "The Ass is the people: hardworking, patient and mistreated." This collection of illustrated weekly papers covers the period just after the outbreak of World War I (July 28, 1914) when Italy was still neutral. Italy revoked its alliance with the Central Powers and entered the war on May 23, 1915 and joined the Allies. Issue 4 of January 1915 has a front cover showing the working man sweeping the crowned heads of the belligerents from their thrones.The caption under the image is: "Il terremoto che occorrerebbe per liberare l'umanità."

Wain, Louis (Author and Illustrator
Dodge Publishing Co. [printed in Scotland at the Villafield, 1914. Wain, Louis. First Edition. Hardcover. First (and only) printing, this the US imprint, octavo size, [36] pp., with rare dust jacket. Near fine / good. English artist Louis Wain (1860-1939) presents a whimsical alphabet, with each letter represented by one of his trademark anthropomorphic cats; the cats live in a rich, vibrant world and display playful personalities amidst their alphabetised actions. According to H. G. Wells, "[Wain] has made the cat his own. He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look and live like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (n. b., quote from Wikipedia). For this alphabet book, Wain creates twenty-five colour illustrations (one for each letter, except for "A", which is in black and white) and an additional six colour illustrations of some local characters, with captions for each image written in verse. This New York imprint is scarce in the marketplace; of the four other copies of this title online as of this writing, all four have the London imprint, and none of them have the dust jacket, which is here, complete, albeit with some chips (see details below). OCLC locates only four copies of this US printing (Columbia, Fresno State, Tulane University, and University of Washington). ___DESCRIPTION: Quarter olive cloth with grey cloth boards, orange lettering and colour illustration inset on the front board, light brown endpapers with line drawings in grey, frontispiece a full-colour illustration by Louis Wain, title page with line dr … [Click Below for Full Description]
