Commensurate with age. A complete set of bound Punch Almanack volumes, 1914 to 1950. - 36 years worth! Covering for me the "Fougasse" period. I only purchased these for the superb cartoons by " Fougasse " Cyril Kenneth Bird. I have now managed to obtain all the cartoons separately so no longer require these full volumes so they are up for grabs. Downsizing is such a pain! Some are whole years others half yearly. I will not sell them individually, sorry. Various bound cover colours - please see photographs of the volumes. Used condition so will carry marks from storage and wear commensurate with age. Due to size of collection and weight - collection only or possible delivery to be discussed at time of purchase. Thank you for looking - any questions please feel free to ask.

William Brown
self. Six Scrapbooks in various conditions, dating from 1914 World War I up to 1947 est.Photos in very good condition, Post cards and documents in good condition for the time period Scrapbook paper very delicate. This collection of six scrapbooks from the Estate of E. Case (Commander Brown's family) tells a visual history of a Sailor that first joined the Sewell Line in NYC in 1906 at 14 on Clipper ships "It might have been the hard way, but you really learned seamanship, real seamanship". He joined the Navy in 1906 and received the rating of Quartermaster 3rd Class, for his meritorious work during the earthquake in San Francisco. A few years later he was promoted to Lieutenant Commander during WWI on Destroyers, battleships and armored cruisers. He later received his Commission during the Haitian Revolution in 1917 and was acting Commodore of the Coast Guard. He eventually served on the USS Druid, which towed the first sub chaser built for the French (WWI). As 1917 was coming to a close he served on the USS Seneca (3 times commended for saving British sailors after their ships were torpedoed). When serving on the USS Tudnor he had fond memories of President Wilson. "On the last occasion the president put his arms around my shoulder and then slapped my back vigorously to emphasize how glad he was to be on United states property". There is also a fantastic photo of a German ship that had been torpedoed. A small drawing from the Commander can be seen where the torpedo entered the ship. Commander Brown was called to duty from retirement during WW II. (1942) The Navy was is nee … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lady Constance LYTTON
1914. [History, Politics] ~ SUFFRAGE AND SUFFERING LYTTON, Lady Constance Prisons & prisoners: some personal experiences London. William Heinemann, [1914]. 8vo. x, [2], 337, [3], 16pp. With a half-title, a photographic portrait frontispiece, a photographic plate, and a terminal publisher's advertisement catalogue. Original publisher's purple cloth, Sylvia Pankhurst's suffragette roundel to upper board, lettered in gilt, printed tan dustwrapper. Very slight shelf-wear, some chipping to wrapper edges, clear tape repairs to verso. Internally immaculate. With two A.L.S., [2]pp and [4]pp respectively, both dated 1913, and both addressed to Miss Allen regarding the publication of the book. A remarkable survival in original dustwrapper of the first edition of Lady Constance Bulwer-Lytton's (1869-1923) account of her suffragette experiences and indictment of prison conditions. The daughter of poet Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton (1831-1891) and novelist Rosina Anne Doyle Bulwer-Lytton (1802-1882), Lady Constance eschewed the conventions of aristocratic society life from an early age. Her life would change dramatically following a visit to Holloway gaol to meet with suffragettes imprisoned there, transforming her into a public figure with a single-minded vision. She joined the WSPU in 1909 and thereafter lobbied parliament, addressed meetings, and rallied her influential contacts on behalf of the campaign for women's suffrage. Her activities and protests led to her imprisonment in Holloway. There she was treated leniently due in part to to her heart condition, but primarily due to the a … [Click Below for Full Description]

WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE. CAIROLI GIGLIOTTI
Chicago, IL, 1914. Book. Woman Suffrage: Its Causes and Possible Consequences. Chicago: Press of Barnard & Miller, 1914. 92 pp. "it is clear that woman suffrage should be discarded for the following reasons: First. It disrupts the home. Second. The woman is physically unfit for certain offices. Third. Politics is the most corrupt game of the age. Fourth. The right to vote does imply the right to become eligible to nomination or election to public offices. Fifth. The influence of the woman should be of a persuasive nature, and should be exercised at home. Sixth. Jealousy would destroy domestic happiness. Seventh. Women voters are unnecessary. Eighth. Women could never control men, on account of weaker physical conditions. Ninth. The needs of the family would be increased while incomes would decrease. Tenth. When the woman is with child, she is liable to suffer as a result of any emotion or abuse." (p74-76)Gigliotti, a naturalized Italian-American attorney in Chicago, declares limited women's suffrage as a failure in reforming politics and even opposes separate ownership of property by women, because husbands use their wives to hide their assets. Excerpts:"The agitation and the propaganda which have held this country spellbound during the past five or ten years, in relation to woman suffrage, which has an equal number of female supporters and opponents, and the fact that the problem is, probably, the most interesting of all problems, have influenced me to prepare this book, which is a modest but comprehensive study of all reasons and arguments advanced for and against suffrag … [Click Below for Full Description]

Freida n'illustra que cinq ouvrages. Le prospectus annonce 100 compositions de Freida, 19 hors-texte et 81 en-tête de sonnets. En réalité, elle ne se compose que de 99 compositions (18 et non 19 hors-texte). Exemplaire enrichi de deux prospectus sur papier japon reliés en fin d'ouvrage. Les deux papiers sont un peu différents, ce qui explique que le bibliophile les aura faits relier ensemble. Notre exemplaire ne contient qu'une seule suite, l'eau-forte pure, en feuilles. Curieusement, il semble que de la quasi-totalité des exemplaires parmi ces 78 devant contenir trois suites n'en ont qu'une ou deux. De fait, de ce tirage, mis à part un exemplaire qui était enrichi de nombreuses suites (dont une sur parchemin), les cinq autres que nous avons identifiés, en plus du nôtre, n'ont qu'une ou deux suites sur les trois. Talvart & Place (XII, 81) indique la mise en vente eut lieu en décembre 1918. La guerre a donc aussi eu des effets sur l'édition en elle-même. Reliure signée Bernasconi, plein maroquin janséniste noir doublé de maroquin rouge, tranches dorées sur témoin, couvertures et dos conservés, étui bordé. Légers défauts.

[Native Americans]. [Canada]
Banff, Alberta, 1914. Very good.. Six real photo postcards, 3.25 x 5.5 inches. Light wear, images clean. Six real photo postcards depicting First Peoples for the celebrations held in Banff, Alberta, known as Banff Indian Days. Each card is captioned in print "Banff Indian Day -- An Annual Event for the past 24 years. Indian Sports held at Banff, Alta., Canadian National Park." Though the origin story for Banff Indian Days is a bit muddled, with dates varying from 1889 to 1894 to 1897, the story claims that the Bow River washed out the railroad tracks in the park, stranding white visitors. In an act of desperation to entertain guests while the railway and roads were repaired, the local Stoney Nakoda people were called upon to perform native rituals and games, providing several days of novel entertainment for visitors trapped in the park. In an article by Laurie Meyer Drees, she notes that flyers for the celebrations in 1914 claimed to be for the twenty-fourth year of Banff Indian Days, thus providing our date for these cards. The six cards all depict Stoney Nakoda people. Two show riders on horseback -- one man and one woman, both in native dress -- while a third is a portrait of a young warrior with feathers in his hair. The last three show a family group around their teepees, with women and children posed together, as well as two men. Ponies, saddles, and other camp accoutrements are visible in detail. Banff Indians Days continued through the 1970s, when they were finally seen as an exploitation of native culture and stopped. They have since been resurrected a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sets in good condition are rare, with all copies signed almost never seen. As remarkable a set of memoirs of the twentieth century as has been written. From his acutely Scottish and literary upbringing into the real human pain and misery of the Great War and onto the declaration of war again in 1939 when he moved from backbench oblivion into taking control firstly of war production under Lord Beaverbrook and then took responsibility for political affairs in the Mediterranean, reporting directly to Churchill, to the rumblings of both Cold War and Common Market, the rise of the Suez Crisis and promotion to Chancellor and shortly afterwards Prime Minister tackling the Cuba crisis with Kennedy, tensions in the Commonwealth between India and Pakistan and a scandal on his own doorstep, the Profumo affair, Macmillan interweaves political strategy, personal thoughts and his engagements with Chamberlain, Baldwin, MacDonald, Halifax, Eden, Lloyd George, Disraeli, Churchill, Herbert Morrison, Lord Beaverbrook, King George VI, Nehru, Khruschev, Eisenhower, The Queen, Adenauer, De Gaulle and J.F.Kennedy together with a personal epilogue into a masterly political autobiography without comparison and an authoritative account of the history of his times.

After the initial modeling sessions Weston became completely captivated by Wilson. In mid-1935 Weston moved to Los Angeles for a project funded by the Works Progress Administration, and he asked Wilson to live with him there. On April 24, 1939, Wilson and Weston were married in Elk, California. Soon after she began writing the text for their next and perhaps most famous book, California and the West, which was published in 1940. In 1941. Edward Henry Weston (March 24, 1886 - January 1, 1958) was a 20th-century American photographer. He has been called "one of the most innovative and influential American photographers..." and "one of the masters of 20th century photography." Over the course of his 40-year career Weston photographed an increasingly expansive set of subjects, including landscapes, still lives, nudes, portraits, genre scenes and even whimsical parodies. It is said that he developed a "quintessentially American, and specially Californian, approach to modern photography" (See Wikipedia for more information) *****The book and slipcase are in excellent condition.

[Ship Building]
Wilmington, De, 1914. Very good.. Sixty two original photographs, most measuring approximately 4.5 x 6.5 inches, a few smaller. Most numbered in manuscript at lower left corner. Crisp, clean images, with minimal wear at corners. A fine photographic record of ship building in Wilmington, Delaware, just prior to World War I, comprising nearly sixty-five original photographs that depict the construction of the shipping steamer "Francis Hanify" by the Harlan & Hollingsworth company. The ship was launched at the end of 1913, and by 1914 was in service hauling lumber, coal, and other cargos on the Pacific Coast, and was one of the first ships to be able to fill entire hold sections with water ballast in order to improve stability during empty trips. The Francis Hanify was built for lumber magnate John R. Hanify, who came to California in 1876 and began his career as a lumber company office boy. By 1893, he operated his own sales agency for Pacific lumber, and by the turn of the 20th century, the firm J.R. Hanify & Co. had its own large-scale lumber manufacturing and shipping concerns up and down the Pacific Coast. The size of Hanify's operations, which included lumber forests and mills in Washington, Oregon, and Northern California, necessitated the construction of their own freighters, of which the Francis Hanify was one of the largest. The photos present here depict numerous aspects of the ship's construction from framing to launch, and comprise an excellent document of the fabrication of a freighter that spent significant time in the service of early 20th-century indust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Conrad, Joseph
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1914. First edition, first printing with the canceled title page of Conrad's first major success. Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles and tooling to the spine, with the date 1914 to the verso of the title page, "Methven" to the backstrip, closed quotation marks around "Narcissus" in Conrad's list of works, 8 pages of publisher's advertisements dated "Autumn 1913" and 31 dated "September 1913" at rear. Due to a delay that postponed the present volume's publication until the spring of 1914, the printing of an updated title pages became necessary. Roughly 50 copies of the first printing were issued with the uncanceled title page reading "First published in 1913" on the verso. Presentation copy, lengthily inscribed by Joseph Conrad on the front free endpaper, "In this book I made an attempt to to grapple with characters generally foreign to the body of my work and tried to present them coloquially [sic] Joseph Conrad." From the library of American bibliophile Charles C. Auchincloss with his bookplate to the pastedown. In near fine condition. Although Conrad's early novel Chance was not one upon which his later critical reputation was to depend, it was his greatest commercial success upon initial publication. Narrated by Conrad's regular narrator, Charles Marlow, Chance is characterized by a complex narrative in which a number of narrators take up the story at different points. The novel is also unusual among its author's works for its focus on a female character: the heroine, Flora de Barral.

TRESSELL, Robert.
London: Grant Richards Ltd, 1914. London: Grant Richards Ltd,, 1914. Damnably subversive, but … extraordinarily real Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front cover in gilt, the latter decorated with an arabesque. A very good copy, binding square and firm, cloth unfaded, gilt letters to front cover partially rubbed, touch of foxing to endpapers and prelims, the contents clean. First edition, first impression. The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists is a classic of English working class literature, often compared with Zola's Germinal and described by George Orwell as "a book everyone should read" (Manchester Evening Times, 1946). The author, Robert Philippe Noonan (1870-1911), was the illegitimate son of an inspector in the Royal Irish Constabulary. He settled in South Africa for ten years, where he helped found the Irish Brigade, which fought against Britain in the Anglo-Boer War, with John McBride and Arthur Griffiths. However, he left in 1899 before hostilities broke out and settled in Hastings. "Working in the building trade at subsistence wages, he contracted tuberculosis, was influenced by socialist writers such as Robert Blatchford, and became an active member of the unusually large Hastings branch of the Social Democratic Federation, whose banner he painted. He spent his spare time during the last ten years of his life writing by hand the 1800-page manuscript of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, which brought posthumous fame" (ODNB). He died in the Royal Infirmary in Liverpool; having set out to start a new life in Canada he got no further, was take … [Click Below for Full Description]
