        Romano's Restaurant. 399, Strand, London. Wine List [ Wine and Spirit List, with detailed informations : Champagnes - Bordeaux Claret - Burgundies - Chablis - Italian Wines - Hocks - Moselles - Ports, Sherries, Australian Wines - Liqueur, Brandies - Liqueurs - Spirit, Bitters, Bottled Beers, Ciders, Minerals - Cigars - Cigarettes. April 1914 ]

      Romano's Restaurant 1914 - 4to paperback under original dustjacket (kind of "tracing paper"), April 1914, 31 pages and 15 leaves (advertisements). Astonishing wine list, coming from one of the most famous london Restaurant "Romano's", at the noontide of its fame (the fragile dustjacket is damaged, good copy otherwise). Among numerous informations (for instance, 5 pages "on the making of Champagnes, from the Wine list of the "Lion d'Or Hôtel Reims"), we find the impressive list of Champagnes (with prices) : Still White Champagne "Cramant" ("very small quantities of this wine are made, and it is difficult to obtain"), Ayala & Co, Binet Fils & Cie, Bollinger & Co, Jules Champion, Clicquot-Ponsardin, Delbeck, Deutz & Geldermann, Dagonet, Duminy & Co, Duval, Chas & Co, Giesler, George Goulet, Heidsieck Dry Monopole, Charles Heidsieck, Ernest Irroy, Krug & Co, Lanson Père et Fils, Moët & Chandon, Duc de Montebello, Mumm G. H. & Co, Perrier Fils & Cie, Perrier-Jouet & Co, Pol Roger & Co, Pommery & Greno, Louis Roederer, Ruinart Père & Fils, St. Marceaux & Co, Schuler Veuve et Fils. The same with the whole list ; Clarets : "Ch. Lafite 1864 ("Very rare and choice wine"), "Ch. Yquem Premier Grand cru 1904" ("The grapes of Ch. Yquem are allowed to ripen and dry on their stalks and are gathered in the heat of the day. The smaller quantity of juice remaining takes a longer time to ferment, and accounts for the sweet flavour and magnificent qualities developed with age by this wine" ; Burgundies : "Romanée Conti 1877 ("Perfection of Burgundy") ; Still Hock : Rüdesheimer Berg Kroneft Cabinet 1904 ("The most perfect Hock in the world") ; Ports : Martinez '75 bottled '78 ("A good example of a light and beautifully flavoured vintage") ; Very scarce brandies, like the "Café Voisin, Grande Fine Champagne 1811" !!! and so on. At the end we can find the Cigars and Cigarettes list ("Coronas Aquila Imperiales" or "Flor de Neraldo")."Perhaps it is well that Romano's should go-for the people who made it the place it was and also the life it reflected, really went down into destruction with the war of 1914. It survived long after that but never quite the same, never quite so free and easy, never quite the same true piece of Bohemia it had been in the days of golden currency, of which it was so much a part. It belonged to the days when wars were far distant, small and professional affairs, and when such things as coupons and points were unknown and unthought of. To Romano's flocked the Bohemians, men and women of the greasepaint, authors, journalists, artists of all kinds, soldiers, sailors (but not of " other ranks"), men of the law, of finance, of the race-course and the prize-rings-and crooks as well. The place was really an informal club of which they were all members and of which they respected the rules. If you were an outsider visiting Romano's you soon found out whether you " belonged- or not." (W. Macqueen Pope, "Ghosts & Greasepaint") Langue: Anglais [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Lavengro

      London, Edinburgh and Boston- T N Foulis 1914 - A beautifully illustrated edition of George Borrow's semi-autobiographicalnovel. In a signed morocco binding by Sangorski and Sutcliffe,gilt stampto front pastedown. With twelve colour illustrated plates tipped in from water colours by Edmund J Sullivan. Lavengro is one of Borrow's best known books. He wrote novels and travelogues based on his experiences travelling around Europe. As a genre, Lavengro falls between a memoir and novel. It has been considered a classic of nineteenth century literature and follows the son of an officer who after servingan apprenticeship as a lawyer, becomes a Grub Street Hack. This allows him to observe London low-life. Throughout the novel theunnamed protagonist meets many Romany travellers, of whom he gives memorable and sympathetic pen-portraits. Condition: In a full morocco binding with gilt stamping to board edges and spine. Binder's stamp in gilt to front pastedown, Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear and handling marks. Spine has faded slightly, as expected with this colour. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with the some spots to the endpapers and the odd spot throughout. Overall: FINE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Camera Work No 47, July 1914 (Signed by Stieglitz)

      New York: Camera Work, 1914. Vintage issue of "Camera Work," lengthily INSCRIBED by founder Alfred Stieglitz to friend and fellow gallery owner Charles Daniel, who contributes to this issue, on the first blank and dated March 30, 1915. Issue 47 of "Camera Work" was unusual in that it did not feature any photographs, artwork, or criticism, and instead focused entirely on the question "What is 291?" referring to Stieglitz's groundbreaking modern art gallery at 291 5th Ave in New York City. Contributors, who included Anne Brigman, Djuna Barnes, Man Ray, and Edward Stiechen, among many others, framed their answers as poems, reminisces, essays, and riddles. Stieglitz inscription references the content of the issue, saying "What is 291? This book tries to tell us - does it succeed? I think it comes close to doing so..." Daniel was a restauranteur and art collector who, inspired by 291 Gallery, opened his own eponymous gallery, one similarly focused on both photography and avant garde art. A key association between two influential figures in the popularization of modern art in the United States. Good only, with the spine missing, with wrappers and several leaves loose, but collating as complete. Light offsetting to the page with the inscription, front wrapper chipped at the lower corner. Pages generally in Very Good plus or better condition.

First published as a two-volume work in 1890 the Golden Bough was expanded to 12 volumes in the third edition (a supplementary thirteenth volume, entitled Aftermath, was published in 1936). "Frazer's true subject is nothing less than humanity's long upward struggle towards an understanding of itself and the world. In Frazer's view that movement towards the light began in earliest times with the priest?king employing magic to compel the gods to do his bidding, followed by a religious stage in which humans admit their powerlessness and now beseech rather than command the gods. Thus for Frazer religion is a necessary stage in mental evolution, but one that is based on mistaken premisses; it has now in turn been superseded by a world-view based on rationality: positive science. In focusing on the pattern of the dying and reviving god that lay at the heart of the religions of the ancient Mediterranean, while never mentioning Christianity, Frazer was more than a little disingenuous. In truth he was engaged all the while in a covert campaign against religion in general and Christianity in particular and may perhaps be seen, along with H. G. Wells, as the most important exponent of secularism in the twentieth century" (ODNB). Scarce with signature.

        Scultura futurista Boccioni

      Libreria della "Voce" (Stab. Tipografico Aldino), 1914. In-8° (250x170mm), pp. 61, brossura editoriale con logo de "La Voce". 10 illustrazioni fotografiche f.t. con riproduzioni di opere boccioniane e un ritratto fotografico di Boccioni f.t. Lievi aloni alla brossura. Un timbro di privata collezione. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione, molto rara, di questo importante saggio giovanile longhiano, il primo dedicato organicamente all'opera di Boccioni. Contiene il Manifesto tecnico della scultura futurista. "Con il libro Scultura futurista: Boccioni - uscito nel maggio del 1914 - il Longhi si affermò come il più lucido critico dell'avanguardia futurista aderendo alla problematica boccioniana e traducendola in un "ponderato dissenso col crocianesimo e con l'estetismo ancora in voga" (P. Barocchi, Testimonianze e polemiche figurative in Italia. Dal divisionismo al Novecento, Messina-Firenze 1974, p. 246)." (Simone Facchinetti in D.B.I., LXV, 2005). "L'avvicinamento di Longhi al futurismo matura nell'ambiente della "Voce" ed ha come esito l'articolo su I pittori futuristi, apparso sulla rivista il 10 aprile 1913 e il libro La scultura futurista di Boccioni, edito nel 1914 dalla Libreria della "Voce". La volontà di rinnovamento politico-sociale e insieme culturale espressa dal periodico fiorentino si traduce d'altronde anche per altri suoi collaboratori (come Ardengo Soffici, Giovanni Papini, Aldo Palazzeschi) in una più o meno precoce adesione all'unico programma artistico veramente innovatore nell'Italia di quegli anni. Longhi pur guardando con strema simpatia a certi esiti artistici del futurismo, mantiene tuttavia le distanze dagli aspetti più esteriori del movimento, mostrandosi sospettoso di fronte agli stessi manifesti ed alle loro "stracche pretese simbolistiche". .. Il saggio sui pittori futuristi viene scritto in occasione della Prima Esposizione di Pittura Futurista a Roma. Difende la "necessità lirico-pittorica di esprimere il movimento" che li accomuna ed afferma la superiorità del futurismo rispetto al cubismo. Nel libro dell'anno successivo concentra invece la propria attenzione sulla Scultura di Boccioni, esaltando la ricerca di ricreazione organica della materia dall'interno perseguita dall'artista e culminata nel capolavoro delle Forme uniche. Gli scritti longhiani sono accolti con grande favore dagli artisti, primo fra tutti Boccioni, che nel libro Pittura scultura futuriste (1914) cita con ammirazione l'articolo sulla pittura futurista. A sua volta Longhi , nei saggi di quegli anni dimostra più di un debito - anche nelle scelte lessicali - nei confronti degli scritti dell'artista. L'elemento di maggiore interesse della sua militanza futurista sta d'altronde proprio nello sforzo di adeguamento del linguaggio alle novità formali introdotte dalle avanguardie artistiche.. Anche dopo chiusa la parentesi futurista Longhi continuerà a difendere la propria scelta giovanile , definendo, ancora nel 1961, il futurismo "un movimento italiano che, dopo un'interruzione di più di un secolo, legava al resto d'Europa." (AA.VV, Il dizionario del futurismo, Firenze, 2001). Cammarota, Futurismo, 279.1. Salaris, Bibliografia, p. 111a. Italiano

        Typed Letter, Signed, to Lippmann, June 10, 1914.

      1914. Friendly Letter from Hand to Walter Lippmann Regarding Socialism and the (Often Dreary) Life of a Judge Hand, Learned [1872-1961]. [Lippmann, Walter (1889-1974)]. [Typed Letter, Signed, To Lippmann, On U.S. District Court Letterhead, June 10, 1914]. Two 10-1/2" x 8" sheets. Some toning, fold lines, two vertical and one horizontal, a few minor corrections by Hand, letter signed L.H. * A friendly letter from of the most significant American jurists of the twentieth century to one of its most influential journalists. Hand, a judge of the U.S. Southern District of New York, later a judge of the Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, was renowned for his judgments, which were also admired for their lucidity and elegance. Lippmann, a writer, reporter, editor and syndicated political commentator, was a highly influential figure in political life and one of the first to introduce the concept of the Cold War. In this letter Hand touches on social matters, mentioning that "Felix [Frankfurter] is back in town," and laments, humorously, the drudgery of faced by judges, "most of whose living hours are consumed in reading testimony. I know see why people in former times went to such extravagances in telling judges what great men they were. If they had not baited the hook in some such way the poor suckers would never have bitten." He also teases Lippmann for joining the Socialist Party and defends his allegiance to Progressivism: "I do not like your political sneers and I do not think they are sincere. My Progressive flag is nailed to the mast and I propose to play the Star Spangled Banner while the ship sinks. My position in the band is to beat the bass drum softly. I don't know what position you have in the Socialist Party; I suspect it is in the last line of the water carriers, with a distinct tendency to desert, at that." As the tone of this letter indicates, Hand and Lippmann were good friends, and would remain so until Hand's death in 1961.

        Group of three inscribed works.

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1914-1920. The Congo: The Chinese Nightingale; The Golden Book of Springfield. 3 volumes octavo (188 × 123 mm). Uniformly bound in contemporary black hard-grained morocco, titles gilt to spines, low bands, devices to the compartments, gilt panels to the boards, recipient's monogram within a laurel wreath to the front boards, marbled endpapers. City flag in colours to the title page of the last-named. Lightly rubbed at the extremities, pale toning of the text-blocks, but overall very good. The first and last first editions, the second the ?third printing of 1919, first published 1917. All three in bindings for Thomas Rénaud Rutter, and each signed and inscribed by Lindsay on the first blanks, the first to Renaud's mother, Mrs. Louise Warren Rutter, with her bookplate to verso of the front free endpaper facing; the second with "My most fraternal good wishes to Thomas Rutter"; the last "Good wishes and good will to Thomas Rutter" with the first three lines from Lindsay's ambiguous pæan to the city of both his and Rutter's birth, "Magical Springfield": "In this - the city of my discontent/Sometimes there comes a whisper from the grass/ Romance, romance is here", initialled verso of the front free endpaper. Both of these with Rutter's nautically-themed bookplate. Springfield native Thomas Rénaud Rutter, the son of tea importer and engineer J.E.T. Rutter, was a Princeton-educated lawyer who at one time served on the staff of the Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Army, before becoming an attorney for the American Sugar Refining Co. He retired to California in 1927, sometime commodore of the Newport Beach Yacht Club. All of the inscriptions are dated May 12 1921 in Plainsfiled, NJ, home town of his wife Abbie, née Holstein. A not unattractively, if rather stiffly, bound group of the works of the "Prairie Troubadour", who was famed for his declamatory, performance poetry, with a pleasing Springfield association.

        Corrispondenza autografa firmata, circa cinquanta pagine. 1914-1925.

      1914. RUSSO Ferdinando. Il poeta che con i suoi versi più si avvicinò all'animo del popolo napoletano. 1868-1927. Corrispondenza autografa firmata, circa cinquanta pagine, tra lettere e cartoline postali, compresa tra il Maggio 1914 ed il 1925, alcune senza data diretta a Angelo Flavio Guidi, giornalista e scrittore, a lungo collaboratore di Vela Latina ed Epoca. E' compresa anche una poesia: "Mò cà luntana stai". Un interessante spaccato questo carteggio sulla vita e l'opera di Ferdinando Russo che da direttore di Vela Latina accetta di buon grado l'offerta di collaborazione del giovane Guidi cui è prodigo di suggerimenti giornalistici e complimenti per i vari articoli con qualche espressione d'augurio di gloria e vittorie per il giovane sottotenente in zona di guerra. Il 2 Luglio 1919 ".ho saputo per caso che siete redattore di Epoca. Posso mandarvi i miei libri ?". Inizia così una lunga e fattiva collaborazione con Epoca e molte sono le questioni attraenti. Dalle lamentele per ritardi amministrativi, alle proteste per i tagli subiti da i suoi articoli. Un breve accenno a Giovanni Verga ".il nostro grande dimenticato.". Un ringraziamento a Benedetto Croce per la sistemazione della Biblioteca e del Museo di Napoli del quale ".io sono ispettore.". Un insieme assai interessante per una valutazione dell'opera di Ferdinando Russo.

Titles and captions in manuscript. Moderate edge wear, several small damp stains, none affecting images, 3" diagonal tear at middle top edge, crudely repaired on verso; horizontal crack on verso neatly repaired.The images show three administrators or teachers, and 18 students, each neatly identified in ink beneath their photos. Interestingly, three of the students are African-American men, and another two are Caucasian females. African-American men had been involved in the embalming business since it first became popular in the United States around the end of the Civil War but women were usually relegated to the background. That changed in 1901 when Lina Odou, a French nurse who trained with Florence Nightingale opened an embalming school for women in New York City.Presumably unique. .

        The Wonderground Map of London Town. "The Heart of Britain's Empire Here is Spread Out For Your View it Shows You Many Stations & Bus Routes Not a Few. You Have Not the Time to Admire It All? Why Not Take A Map Home to Pin on Your Wall!"

      The Westminster Press. London. Copyright 1914. [ 1928]. - Color pictorial / pictographic map sheet 29 1/4 x 36 1/2 inches, originally folded as issued, now professionally restored and mounted on linen. Tiny chips to edges and corners now infilled, light wear and separations to folds all professionally restored and virtually invisible, the poster appearing fresh and clean. Originally published in 1914 as an advertising poster for the London Underground, this design proved so popular that it was subsequently in several different editions. It has been suggested (on the blog of Tim Bryars) that this particular edition with an image of a greyhound and "On to Wembley" at the upper left of the map was issued at the time of the introduction of greyhound racing at Wembley in December 1927 "with a dog named Spin winning the very first race." The greyhound's jacket in the print carries the letter 'S' endorsing this suggestion. An outstanding and innovative graphic - an explosion of color and humor - the poster sparked a revival in interest in decorative cartography around the world which continues today, a century later.
