ADDAMS, Jane)
The Woman Investor, New York, 1914. Quarto (12" x 9"). 21, [3]pp. First and last leaves a little stained, detached at the spine, very good. Original publisher's mockup, containing the basic outline of the magazine with empty spaces for the still-unwritten articles. The first attempt at a magazine featuring women as investors. The lead article to be written by Jane Addams was titled "Dollars and Sense." Other projected articles (presumably never written or published) include "The Million Who are Taboo" by Anne Faulkner; "The Test of Investment Capacity" by Mrs. Russell Sage; and "The Words of His Mouth: Concerning a Finance Gentleman who was so Smooth he Slipped" by Elizabeth Beecher. On page four the editor or publisher prints a page-long statement of purpose with a decidedly feminist opening statement: "Women stockholders are denied equality with men stockholders." And further on, concerning the magazine: "It is likely to be found as militant. It will be as fair, though, as it is outspoken." We can find no further information about this intended publication and no publisher or editor is named. *OCLC* locates no copies; there is no record that the magazine was ever published. Perhaps unique. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Vredenburg, Edric; Wain, Louis
London: Tuck, 1914. Very good plus.. Original quarter cloth, pictorial paper boards with pictorial paste-on. Pictorial endpapers. Illustrated by Wain with 12 fabulous color plates plus hundred's of black-and-white images. [144] pages, including ads. Tips rubbed, light wear. First edition, with Wain's cats shown in trades and stations: tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, gentleman, thief, plough boy, and apothecary. Known as "The Edwardian Cat Artist That Went Mad," Wain was once "the most famous cat artist on earth" (Haining). His work in conceiving an entire Catland inspired the creators of Felix the Cat and even Mickey Mouse; Haining notes that Wain also "played a major part in making the cat the most popular of all domestic pets." The pictures in this book immerse the reader in Catland; as always, Wain's cats do not disappoint.

His work in conceiving an entire Catland inspired the creators of Felix the Cat and even Mickey Mouse; Haining notes that Wain also "played a major part in making the cat the most popular of all domestic pets."

[Central New Jersey], 1914. Photo album. Oblong octavo. Thick card leaves with inset grommets intended for string binding, now disbound. Contains 33 mounted gelatin silver images, mostly around 2.75" x 4.5" with several of the images either a little larger or smaller. Some of the margins of the thick card have chipped or broken away, the boards fair only, the images about very good with some uneven fading on some, and one chip in the corner of one image. The front board is hand-lettered "Triple Alliance", otherwise the album is mostly uncaptioned except for one image identified as "Centre town, New Jersey", but most with dates; all in either 1912, 1913 or 1914. An interesting album, apparently of a men's athletic club, most of the images depict younger men in athletic tank tops with the intertwined T & A logo of the Triple Alliance. The cheerful group are depicted playing baseball, brandishing tennis racquets, sailing, canoeing, swimming, on the beach or by a boathouse, and in a couple of images hugging girls. Provenance, as well as the one captioned photo, suggests that the album came from the Central New Jersey Shore area. The nearest match to Centre Town we could find in New Jersey was Centreton in Salem, N.J.

A Near Fine copy of a now very scarce Heath Robinson title. "As with Twelfth Night, Heath Robinson set out to recreate the atmosphere of the play rather than to provide a pictorial record of the action, this time with a subject that gave him greater scope for his imagination. It is the black and white illustrations that dominate the book and they fall into two main groups, the woodland scenes and the drawings of the rustics. In the woodland scenes Heath Robinson has developed a decorative style of drawing foliage which was first used by Beardsley in a number of his drawings for The Savoy...Heath Robinson started to refine the technique in the drawings to Poe's poems...In A Midsummer Night's Dream the style is refined further and combined with solid black skies and strong foreground patterns of wild … [Click Below for Full Description]

His books, particularly those done in collaboration with FranÁois-Louis Schmied are masterpieces in Art Deco book illustration. HBS 68345. $4,500

Tunesien, 1914. circa 28 x 37,5 cm., 45 Tafeln (= 90 Seiten) beidseitig mehr als 100 Original-Photos montiert. Rotes Maroquin d. Zt. Sehr elegantes Album wohl eines französischen Ehepaars, dass mit der Yacht Sagitta eine Kreuzfahrt machte und dann mehrere Ausflüge in das Landesinnere von Tunesien unternahm. Die Qualität der Photos ist bemerkenswert, ein Bild zeigt auch einen Photographen in der Wüste mit einer Plattenkamera auf einem hohen Stativ. Die meisten Photos (etwa 90) haben etwa das Format 17 x 22,5 cm, umgeben von einer Bordüre, etwa 20 Bilder sind etwas kleiner. Zu sehen ist das Schiff mit wohl englischer Besatzung - ein Bild protraitiert den Kapitän mit einem Schiffstelegraph von Chadburns, Liverpool und eine 1908 gebaute "Sagitta" ist dann im Ersten Weltkrieg in der British Navy dokumentiert (may have served as wireless-equipped A/P Group Leader or in special yacht squadrons, at home or in Mediterranean - vgl. naval-history.net). Die Bilder zeigen Exkursionen durch die Sahara, etliche Ansichten der Ruinen in Thugga (Dougga), viele ungestellte Szenen aus dem Leben der Einheimischen, Szenen an Bord und an Land mit Tunesiern. Die Vorbesitzerin verkleidet sich mehrfach entweder als alte Römerin oder als Araberin und lässt sich in entsprechendem Ambiente sehr pittroesk ablichten etc. - Karton wenig gebräunt, wenige Bilder leicht geblichen, einige etwas getönt, Einband berieben, aber sehr dekorativ.

Toronto. The Champlain Society. 1914-1916.. Soft cover. 24cm, in three volumes, xxiii,512, x,617 & xii,587p. with 49 plates & 20 maps (inc. 12 folding & one large folding pocket map), limited to 550 copies, this being #371, original gilt crested red cloth, t.e.g., spines slightly faded (titles and stamping clear), previous owner's bookplate, a fine set. (Cmt) The best contemporary authority on the death of Wolfe and the conquest of Canada. Knox, an Irishman, served in America from 1757 to 1760 with the 43rd Regiment of Foot. His journal written mostly at the time, and finished almost as soon as the events it contains, is one of the most accurate and detailed accounts available on the sieges of Louisbourg and Quebec. This journal is a blunt, full, interesting, and a matter of fact record of events from day to day. It is candid and reliable and has furnished materials for all subsequent writers. The military and naval orders are singularly valuable for the light they throw upon the operations of war as it was conducted at the time by both armies. .

Die meisten Photos (etwa 90) haben etwa das Format 17 x 22,5 cm, umgeben von einer Bordüre, etwa 20 Bilder sind etwas kleiner. Zu sehen ist das Schiff mit wohl englischer Besatzung - ein Bild protraitiert den Kapitän mit einem Schiffstelegraph von Chadburns, Liverpool und eine 1908 gebaute "Sagitta" ist dann im Ersten Weltkrieg in der British Navy dokumentiert (may have served as wireless-equipped A/P Group Leader or in special yacht squadrons, at home or in Mediterranean - vgl. naval-history.net). Die Bilder zeigen Exkursionen durch die Sahara, etliche Ansichten der Ruinen in Thugga (Dougga), viele ungestellte Szenen aus dem Leben der Einheimischen, Szenen an Bord und an Land mit Tunesiern.

"As with Twelfth Night, Heath Robinson set out to recreate the atmosphere of the play rather than to provide a pictorial record of the action, this time with a subject that gave him greater scope for his imagination. It is the black and white illustrations that dominate the book and they fall into two main groups, the woodland scenes and the drawings of the rustics. In the woodland scenes Heath Robinson has developed a decorative style of drawing foliage which was first used by Beardsley in a number of his drawings for The Savoy...Heath Robinson started to refine the technique in the drawings to Poe's poems...In A Midsummer Night's Dream the style is refined further and combined with solid black skies and strong foreground patterns of wild flo … [Click Below for Full Description]
