        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.

        (Photograph): Barnes School of Anatomy. Sanitary Science and Embalming. Class of 1914. Chicago, Illinois

      Chicago: Barnes School of Anatomy. 1914. Large poster or broadside. 28" x 22". Thick board with 21 adhesive mounted oval gelatin silver photographs, most measuring approximately 4" x 3". 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.

      London, Edinburgh and Boston- T N Foulis, 1914 Book. Fine. Hardcover. 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.

        Un grand dessin original d'Umberto Brunelleschi

      1914 - Dessin sur calque rehaussé au crayon bleu et l'encre noire. 380 x 200 mm. Aucune marque de pliure, si ce n'est le gondolage léger, fréquent sur les calques de peu de grammage et des bords légèrement dentelés mais sans morsures ni déchirures. Nous ne pouvons identifier la date avec certitude, mais les biographies laissent entrevoir que c'est surtout à partir de sa collaboration avec L'Assiette au beurre pendant la première guerre mondiale qu'il s'est mis à brocarder ouvertement les militaires. Umberto Brunelleschi, né le 21 juin 1879 à Pistoia, Toscane, mort le 16 février 1949 à Paris, est un peintre, illustrateur et affichiste italien. Après avoir étudié à l'Académie des beaux-arts de Florence, participé à diverses expositions en Italie, Umberto Brunelleschi quitte son pays natal, en même temps que son ami Ardengo Soffici, et vient s'établir à Paris, où il trouve un travail comme illustrateur pour le journal Le Rire, en novembre 1900. Dans les premières années du xxe siècle, il se lie très rapidement avec le milieu des jeunes poètes fréquentant le Quartier latin et commence à exposer au Salon des indépendants. Il donne des dessins à l'Assiette au beurre sous le pseudonyme d'Aroun al Rachid [certainement la période de ce dessin] et collabore également à différentes luxueuses revues de mode telles que Les Feuillets d'Art, la Gazette du Bon Ton, Femina, le Journal des Dames et des Modes (relancé par George Barbier). Il fut également le directeur artistique d'une revue éphémère (1919-1920), mais remarquée, La Guirlande de l'art et de la littérature. Ambitieux d'une oeuvre plus rare, l'artiste ne dédaigne pourtant pas alors de composer des panneaux-réclames pour un grand magasin. Il devient portraitiste, colorant son modernisme d'influences florentines. Dans les années 1920, Umberto Brunelleschi diversifie ses activités en créant des costumes pour les revues des Folies Bergère ou du Casino de Paris et pour le théâtre (Le Châtelet à Paris, et des théâtres à New York, en Italie et en Allemagne). Il fut le créateur de nombreux costumes de scène pour Joséphine Baker. La carrière de Brunelleschi est avant tout celle d'un illustrateur ayant entendu à la fois la leçon des maîtres galants du xviiie siècle et celle des bouffons de la commedia dell'arte. Luc Monod recense près de 30 ouvrages illustrés par Brunelleschi, pour des auteurs tels que Andersen, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Charles Perrault, Jean de La Fontaine, Boccace (le Décaméron), Diderot, Voltaire (Candide, L'Ingénu), Goethe, Musset ou encore l'abbé Prévost. Ses gouaches originales pour l'illustration de livres étaient régulièrement exposées dans les différents Salons à Paris et à la Biennale de Venise. Acheté très tôt, peu d'oeuvres circulent desormais sur le marché. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Die formale Grundlage der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie. [The Formal Foundation of the General Theory of Relativity]

      Berlin: Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften. FIRST EDITION OFFPRINT. Original Wrappers. Fine. FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT ISSUE, of Einstein's important 1914 paper on the development of general relativity. "In summer 1914, Einstein felt that the new theory [general relativity] should be presented in a comprehensive review. He also felt that a mathematical derivation of the field equations that would determine them uniquely was still missing. "Both tasks are addressed in a long paper, presented in October 1914 to the Prussian Academy for publication in its Sitzungsberichte. It is entitled 'The formal foundation of the general theory of relativity'; here, for the first time, Einstein gave the new theory of relativity the epithet 'general' in lieu of the more cautious 'generalized' that he had used for the Entwurf" (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940). "According to John Norton ('How Einstein Found His Field Equations'), this major review article was intended to convey the full content of the 1913 'Entwurf' theory: 'The principal novelty lies in the mathematical formulation of the theory. Drawing on earlier work with [Marcel] Grossman, Einstein formulated his gravitational field equations using a variation principle. Using this richer mathematical structure Einstein offered a proof purporting to demonstrate that his theory had the maximum covariance compatible with the hole argument; that is, covariance under 'justified' transformation between the 'adapted coordinate systems' he had introduced with Grossman'" (Calaprice, The Einstein Almanac). Offprint from: Sitzungsberichte der Königlich Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, XLI, 19 November 1914, pp. 1030-1085. Berlin: Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1914. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Only the slightest wear; a fine copy. Rare.
