        Training Manual, Royal Flying Corps Part II (Military Wing) (Provisional)

      Original soft covers. Size 13.5 x 11cm(approx.. Condition very good. There is a slight crease to bottom corner of front cover and a 1cm split at top of spine with wear to one edge for 3cm at bottom of spine. Some light fingerprint marks on covers. Otherwise in exceptionally good condition with firm tight binding. First 14 pages are a catalogue of military books then 80 pages of text with final pages of book catalogue up to page 22 at end. Part II came out very shortly after Part I and is the first to carry the title 'Military Wing'. Part I had a more general overview and Part II contains the greater specifics of military combat. This book is almost certainly the first English language volume dealing with the tactical doctrine for the employment of (Royal Flying Corps) aircraft in wartime. In modern parlance it is the first British book of Air Power Doctrine. Written largely by Lt Col Frederick Sykes (arguably the father of the Royal Flying Corps), it was published in early 1914, even before the British Declaration of War on Germany. It is a remarkable book, not only because its guidance is based only on observation of a very few pre-war exercises involving aircraft (the RFC only formed its first fixed-wing squadron in late 1912) but also because much of its content would still be recognisable to a modern military pilot. Extremely scarce.

        Collection of 35 Original Photographs Documenting the Adventures of the "Vagabonds": Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John Burroughs, and Harvey Firestone, c. 1918-22

      Thirty-five original sepia prints, 5 x 7 inches., showing scenes from some of the many camping trips of the group of prominent men who called themselves the Vagabonds-Ford, Edison, Burroughs, and Firestone. Two matted, the rest loose. Minor rippling, else very good. The idea for the Vagabonds summer camping trips originated in 1914, when Ford and Burroughs visited Edison in Florida. "In 1916, Edison invited Ford, Burroughs and Harvey Firestone to journey through the New England Adirondacks and Green Mountains. In 1918, Ford, Edison, Firestone, his son Harvey, Burroughs, and Robert DeLoach of the Armour Company caravanned through the mountains of West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia. Subsequent trips were made in 1919 to the Adirondacks and New England; in 1920 to John Burroughs' home and cabin retreat into the Catskill Mountains; in 1921 to West Virginia and northern Michigan; and in 1923 to northern Michigan….The trips were well organized and equipped. There were several heavy passenger cars and vans to carry the travelers, household staff, and equipment; Ford Motor Company photographers also accompanied the group. The 1919 trip involved fifty vehicles, including two designed by Ford: a kitchen camping car with a gasoline stove and built-in icebox presided over by a cook and a heavy touring car mounted on a truck chassis with compartments for tents, cots, chairs, electric lights, etc. On later trips, there was a huge, folding round table equipped with a lazy susan that seated twenty" (Henry Ford Museum). The group offered here includes some well-known and often reprinted images (e.g., Ford repairing one of his boots, Burroughs picking berries, the men traveling the countryside on horseback), but also several less common, possibly unpublished images, including one of Ford washing handkerchiefs in a creek, several showing the women of the party, and one of Ford's personal photographer George Ebling, who likely took many of the photos in the group.

        ADVENTURES OF THE INFALLIBLE GODAHL

      New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Company, Publishers, [1914]., 1914. First edition. First edition. Author's first book. With eight full-page illustrations. Neat bookplate of Adrian Homer Goldstone on front pastedown sheet, else a near fine, bright, square copy in a facsimile dust jacket. (There have probably been no more than two sightings of the original dust jacket in the past 50 years). This book narrates six adventures of a remarkable master thief. Otto Penzler says it best in TAD, Volume 19, Number 2, Pages 158-159, "He (Frederick Irving Anderson) is one of the distinguished short-story writers in the history of the American short story in general, and the short crime story in particular." "THE INFALLIBLE GODAHL, the first of Anderson's creations, is the most perfect criminal mind ever devised. He does not rely on luck or daring to achieve his ends; he employs flawless logic. It is his belief that, if he thinks a problem through to its logical end, it will be impossible for him to get caught. He achieves his aims so impeccably that he has not only never been caught, but he has never even been suspected of a crime." He states further that this book, "is surely one of the great cornerstone volumes in the far-reaching world of mystery fiction. The omission of the book from QUEEN'S QUORUM, Ellery Queen's selection of the 125 most important volumes of detective short stories, is one of the major flaws in that otherwise excellent work." An exceptional copy of an elusive title.

        [Manuscrits autographes et tapuscrits inédits] Contes et autres textes courts : "Anecdotes vraies", "De plus en plus vrai", "Tout aussi vrai qu'autre chose"

      en feuilles A) Manuscrit : "Anecdotes vraies", 20 pp. in-4, en feuilles sous chemise (17 historiettes, non signées) ; B) Manuscrit : "De plus en plus vrai", 97 pp. in-4, en feuilles sous chemise (15 contes, certains signés "Jacques Normandin") ; C) Tapuscrit (en copie carbone) : "Tout aussi vrai qu'autre chose", 236 pp. in-4 précédées de 2 pp. in-4 manuscrites (titre et pseudonyme de l'auteur puis table des contes) en feuilles sous chemise (18 contes, certains en double, avec corrections autographes - répétées sur les doubles, la chemise porte, entre autres : "Jacques Normandin, chez M. Damourette" puis son adresse à Sarcelles) ; D) 2 pp. in-4 autographes listant les 33 contes présentés en (B) et (C) ainsi que 4 longs poèmes dont nous n'avons pas trouvé trace ; E) Manuscrit (et palimpseste) : un conte autographe à l'écriture rapide et difficilement déchiffrable, 14 pp. in-4 au verso du tapuscrit (de 25 pp.) d'un rapport sur "l'allure" (en grammaire) par son neuveu Edouard Pichon daté du 20 juillet 1914 ; F) Manuscrit : "Histoire d'un avocat...", 8 pp. autographes in-4 signées "Bindin" ; G) 4 poèmes ou chansons autographes (dont deux signés) sur 5 pp. in-4, 1 p. in-8 et 1 p. in-12. A notre connaissance tous ces contes sont inédits, même si Damourette en a semble-t-il envoyé quelques uns en vue de publication (la mention "E" - pour "envoyé" ? - dans la table des contes tapuscrits correspond à ceux qui ne sont pas en double). Damourette a fait représenter en 1925, sous le nom de Jacques Normandin et sur la scène de l'Opéra comique, avec une musique de son ami Lucien Chevaillier, une pièce en un acte intitulée "Le Poème du soir" qui ne semble pas avoir été publiée et qui, de toute évidence, a beaucoup moins marqué les esprits que sa Grammaire. Cela dit, ces contes, pour le peu que nous avons pris le temps d'en lire, sont fort légers et distrayants.Jacques Damourette, célibataire et infirme (il était à la fois borgne, tuberculeux et épileptique), ne pratiqua presque pas son métier d'architecte mais consacra sa vie à l'étude de la grammaire : il est l'auteur d'un "Traité moderne de ponctuation", d'un "Projet de réforme orthographique" (avec Albert Dauzat) et surtout, avec son neuveu Edouard Pichon, d'un monumental "Essai de grammaire de la langue française" en 7 volumes et 3 suppléments, "l'ouvrage capital du XXe siècle dans le domaine de la langue française" (Grand Larousse de la langue française en sept volumes).Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours.

        2 eigenh. Vorlesungsmanuskripte, jeweils mit eh. Namenszug am vorderen Vorsatz.

      Wien, 1907-1914. - 2 Bde. (1), 314, (1) SS.; lose einliegend 2 Bll. Formeln. 260 [recte 248: Paginiersprung von 229 auf 240; 1 revidiertes Blatt vom Verfasser nach der Paginierung entfernt], (3) SS. Schwarze Tinte auf kariertem Papier, gelegentliche Ergänzungen in Blei- und rotem bzw. blauem Buntstift. Mit zahlreichen (teils fast ganzseitigen) Skizzen und Schemata. Halblederbände der Zeit mit goldgepr. Rückentitel "Vorlesungen Mechanik I. [bzw. II.] F.H.". Dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. 4to. Über einen Zeitraum der letzten sieben Schaffensjahre Hasenöhrls geführte Vorlesungsmanuskripte mit Schwerpunkt auf den Jahren 1907/08; die Bindung in zwei Halblederbände noch vom Physiker selbst veranlasst; am Vorsatz sein Namenszug: "Prof. Dr. F. Hasenöhrl / Wien, Universität". Die Bände umfassen die ersten beiden vollständigen Vorlesungen von Hasenöhrls vierjährigem Zyklus, zu dem neben Mechanik und Kontinuumsmechanik noch Elektrodynamik, Wärmetheorie und Optik gehörten. - Der erste Band enthält die "Vorlesung über Mechanik der starren Systeme. Gehalten fünfstündig im Wintersemester 1907/8 (vom Beginn 24. X, bis 14. II.)" (insoweit in Widerspruch zur Angabe bei Bittner, S. 335, Hasenöhrl habe in jenem Wintersemester nicht gelesen). Der erste Termin war Hasenöhrls Antrittsvorlesung an der Wiener Universität, wo er Boltzmann nachfolgte, der sich im Herbst 1906 in Duino das Leben genommen hatte. Bei der Neubesetzung des Boltzmann'schen Lehrstuhls hatte sich Hasenöhrl gegen die ihm vorgereihten älteren Kollegen Max Planck und Wilhelm Wien durchgesetzt. Diese Antrittsvorlesung, als einzige in Stenographie (mit gelegentlichen langschriftlichen Einsprengseln) abgefasst, bringt darum auch einen Nachruf auf seinen Vorgänger (nicht ident mit seinem 1906 in "Elektrotechnik und Maschinenbau" H. 41 veröffentlichten Nachruf auf Boltzmann). Die restlichen 28 Kapitel reichen von der "Kinematik des Punktes" über die Lagrange'schen Gleichungen und "Hamiltons partielle Differentialgleichung" bis zur relativen und zyklischen Bewegung. Markierungen in rotem Buntstift geben den pro Termin behandelten Stoffumfang an; einzelne Teile wurden auch statt im Hörsaal "im Pros[eminar] gemacht". Am Schluß (ab S. 305) stehen die Änderungen, die Hasenöhrl beim Neuvortrag im Wintersemester 1910/11 vornahm (lt. Bittner auch 1913/14 wiederholt). - Der zweite Band enthält die zweisemestrige "Vorlesung über Mechanik der deformablen Körper" (Wintersemester 1907/08: Elastizität; Sommersemester 1908: Hydromechanik; von letzterer haben die Hörer indes "wegen Stud[enten-]Streik ca. 2 Wochen verloren"). Als Motto vorangestellt ist ein Wort aus Guido Ubaldis "Paraphrasis in duos Archimedis aequeponderantium libros" (1588): "Quapropter ad Archimedem confugiendum est, si vera huius scientiae principia perdiscere cupimus." Auch dieser Band enthält am Schluß eine dreiseitige "Ergänzung 1911", mit der die Seiten 90-101 grundlegend überarbeitet wurden. Sommer 1914 folgt noch eine Neufassung der "schlamperten Seite[n] 183 ff." über Strahlenbildung, welche teils gestrichen (S. 183f.), teils ganz ausgerissen sind (S. 185f.; Blatt fehlt bis auf einen schmalen Steg); es schließen sich noch an die Abschnitte "Allgemeines über Bewegung mit Rotationssym[m]etrie" und "Kreisförmige Wirbel" (zus. 13 Seiten). Kurz vor Semesterende desselben Jahrs brach der Erste Weltkrieg aus. Hasenöhrl, dessen Mutter aus altem Offiziersadel stammte, meldete sich freiwillig als Infanterist und erhielt nach einer Verwundung im Juli 1915 das Militär-Verdienstkreuz III. Klasse. Am 7. Oktober traf ihn bei Vielgereuth (Folgaria) ein Granatsplitter in den Kopf. - Obwohl Hasenöhrl "[d]ie Vorlesungen [.] stets frei ab[hielt]" (Bittner, 198), beruhte sein Vortrag doch offensichtlich auf minuziöser Vorbereitung. Die dicht gedrängte Fülle des Stoffs läßt sich daran ermessen, daß jeder Vorlesungstermin im Manuskript meist gerade zwischen vier und sechs Seiten umfaßt; dennoch finden sich immer wieder durchformulierte Passagen, u. a. Exkurse wie zu Sven [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The volumes 103 and 110 centaining (sic) the English diplomatic correspendence (sic) from 1746-1749 give some informations about Sir Charles, who was then minister at Berlin. I am working at the publications of the documents for the subsequienet (sic) years 1750-1752 and meet often with his name. I have no idea of the picture of Walpole in the Winterpalace. Please agree the assurance of my best consideration (sic). Serge Goriainoff.? Sergej Mihajlovic Gorainov (1849-1918) was director of the archive in St. Petersburg. The recipient of his letter and this book was Sir John Hanbury-Williams (1859-1946; his bookplate to endpaper). He served in the British army as a military attaché at several different courts. During the first World War he was a liaison officer at the Russian headquarters and had direct contact with the Zar Nicolai II. The present book must have had a personal importance for him as he amply annotated it throughout. There are hundreds of remarks and references added in the margins. - Uncut, with few small tears to outer margins (no loss), bound in wrapper frayed, binding rubbed, otherwise well preserved. Unique richly annotated copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mr Justice Precedent. 21" x 15-1/2" gouache image on 26" x 19-1/2"

      1914. "His Famous Wig Composed Entirely of Split Hairs and Adorned with the Ceremonial Crimson Tape" Robinson, Boardman [1876-1952]. [Becker-Rosenthal Murder Trial]. Mr. Justice Precedent. [New York, 1914]. 21" x 15-1/2" gouache image on 26" x 19-1/2" sheet, image signed twice and inscribed by Robinson, caption in pencil below image, most likely in another hand, laid down on illustration board. Image in 30-1/2" x 24" wooden frame, glazed. Light soiling, a few minor stains and four crop-marks to margins outside of image, which could be covered with a matte, image fine. Several minor scuffs and nicks to frame. A unique item relating to a notable trial. * This piece was created to illustrate "Leaden Footed Justice in New York State," an article that appeared in the Special Feature Section of the New York Tribune on Sunday, March 1, 1914. The caption reads: "Mr. Justice Precedent wearing his famous wig composed entirely of split hairs and adorned with the ceremonial crimson tape." The caption refers to the protracted nature of the Becker-Rosenthal Murder case, which began on October 7, 1912, restarted on May 2, 1914 and finally concluded after a series of procedural events in 1915. The case involved a group of corrupt police offices led by Charles Becker who ran a protection racket on illegal casinos. Becker hired gangsters to kill a casino owner, and rival gangster, who was threatening to expose the racket. A breathtaking example of police corruption, the investigation and trial was front-page news in New York for months. In the end Becker was sent to the electric chair at Sing Sing. (This was the first time a police officer received the death penalty). The case lived on for several years in the popular imagination; it is mentioned, for example, by Meyer Wolfsheim in The Great Gatsby (1925). Robinson, the creator of this illustration, was a distinguished artist, illustrator and cartoonist. A native of Nova Scotia, he studied art in Boston and completed his training in Paris at the Academie Colarossi and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, both in Paris. "Mr. Justice Precedent" shows his affinity, acquired in Paris, for the work of Daumier, Forain and Steinlen. Robinson produced work for several newspapers and periodicals. He created "Mr. Justice Precedent" when he was an editorial cartoonist for the

        [Personal Documents and Promotional Materials From George Peabody College for Teachers]

      Nashville, TN, (ca. early 1920s to late 1930s). Very good. Collection of 100+ items/3” linear approx. belonging to student of Peabody College for Teachers, comprised primarily of personal papers relating to the student’s course materials, schedules, receipts, graduation forms and invitations, a photograph of classmates, social club rosters, directories, correspondence, and promotional material issued by the college including brochures, newsletters, bulletins, solicitations, alumni association and other assorted materials. Some toning, wear. Generally very good. Archive a student who received his BS, MA and PhD at Peabody, as well as that of his wife, who also graduated from Peabody with a BS. The couple were both heavily involved in the school, members of numerous social organizations, and active in student government (he was president of the senior class of '26). The promotional material in the collection shows that the college, which had reorganized and opened a new campus directly across from Vanderbilt University in 1914, was in the midst of major construction and expansion projects during this time; many pieces show photographs and renderings of new or planned buildings. The college, at that time the largest teachers' college in the South, was incorporated into Vanderbilt in 1979. A varied education archive, particularly rich with detail of curricula and student life.

        Typed letter signed. New York, 16. III. 1914.

      1914. Large 4to. 1½ pp. on 2 ff. On headed paper. To John Henderson, Secretary of the National Liberal Club: "I find that the Whitsuntide Holidays will be on when we arrive in London, via Plymouth, Saturday the thirtieth of May, and that Parliament will not assemble until the tenth of June. Because of this I had concluded you would not desire to hav[e] the address delivered until the holidays were over, but on re-reading your letter this morning it shows that you accept for the beginning of June. I hav[e] accepted two other banquet engagements in London early in June: one to attend the Annual Dinner of the Aberdeen University Club, of which University I am Lord Rector, and the other dinner in honor of the veteran of the House, Thomas Burt, who has had a wonderful career. I could not do otherwise than accept this, feeling as I do about him. The question is, would it be more desirable to you to hav[e] me make the address after Parliament meets, or do you prefer to hav[e] the address made the first, second or third of June? In the former case I would go direct to Skibo, and return to keep the three engagements named [...]".

Bildverlust); die Einbände teils berieben und etwas verblichen sowie an den Stehkanten teils etwas aufgescheuert; ansonsten gut erhalten. - Nach dem Vorbild der »Illustrated London News« und der »Illustration« (Paris) erschien ab 1843 im Leipziger Verlag J.J. Weber die erste illustrierte Zeitschrift in Deutschland. Zugleich das Flaggschiff und die Urmutter aller späteren «Bilderblätter», ein mutiger und kühner Versuch in einer für solche Unternehmungen eher ungünstigen Zeit, ein Experiment, das, wenn auch ein «kostspieliges Unternehmen», gleichwohl gelang und sich zu einem hervorragenden Verkaufserfolg entwickelte. Während die »Gartenlaube« - das bekanntere und etwas kleinere Gegenstück zur »Illustrirten« - als klassisches «Familienblatt», als «Hausfreund» und «Berater» fungierte, hatte die »Illustrirte Zeitung« von Anfang an ein breiteres Themenfeld im Blick. Angeboten wurden «Wöchentliche Nachrichten über alle Ereignisse, Zustände und Persönlichkeiten der Gegenwart, über Tagesgeschichte, öffentliches und gesellschaftliches Leben, Wissenschaft und Kunst, Musik, Theater und Moden.» In der Tat: Kein anderes Periodikum hat, aufs Ganze gesehen, eine derartige Materialfülle zu bieten, was schon daran abzulesen wäre, daß ein Feindaten-Generalregister seinerseits mehrere Bände würde füllen müssen. «Unser Vorsatz geht dahin, die Kultur in weitere Kreise zu tragen und die Bekanntschaft mit den Ereignissen im Staats- und Völkerleben, mit Kunst und Natur, überhaupt mit allen bemerkenswerten Vorgängen deutlicher und fruchtbarer zu machen. Die eingehendsten Schilderungen werden nur halb verstanden, ohne das Bild der Örtlichkeit, wo sie sich zutrugen, vor Augen zu haben. Nur wenn man Karten, Pläne, Gebäude, Landschaften, Kunstwerke, Maschinen, Geräte, mit einem Worte die beschriebenen Gegenstände in treuem Bilde vor sich sieht, wird die Kenntnis der Dinge klar und haftet fest in der Vorstellung und in der Erinnerung. Selbst die Persönlichkeiten, deren biographische Skizzen wir bringen, werden dem Leser vertrauter, wenn er zugleich ihre Portraits betrachtet.» Ihr enormer Einsatz an Bildern und Bildreportagen (mit eigenen Bildkorrespondenten) macht die »Illustrirte Zeitung« durch ihre lange Laufzeit von einem Jahrhundert zu einer schwerlich auszuschöpfenden Quelle an Materialien zur Geschichte und Kultur so gut wie der Politik und des Alltagslebens.

        North of Boston

      London: David Nutt, 1914. First edition. Hardcover. This is a beautifully fine first edition of the author?s second published book, which bolstered his newly minted literary reputation and precipitated his return to the United States from England, where his first two books were published.  North of Boston opens with the famous poems ?The Pasture? and ?Mending Wall? and was swiftly hailed by important reviews when published in April 1914.  Complicating the publication history, the reported 1,000 first edition sheets saw six different binding variants distributed over a period of eight years, due both to transfer of sheets for an American edition and to bankruptcy of the original publisher (Nutt) and resulting sale of remaining first edition sheets.  (See Crane, A3, pp.14-15)  In 1922, Dunster House Bookshop of Cambridge, Massachusetts, acquired the remaining 259 sets of first edition sheets, 200 of them unbound and 59 already bound in blue cloth by Simpkin Marshall of London.  These 59 copies were rebound by Dunster House in green (Binding E, per Crane).  This copy is a scarce and superlative example of Binding E, stamped gilt on the front cover as in Binding A, but with a blind rule at the top and bottom only, with trimmed text block edges, and with ?Printed in Great Britain? ink-stamped on the title page verso.  The green cloth binding remains square, tight, and improbably bright and clean.  We note only the most trivial hint of shelf wear to the bottom edge, but no soiling, spine ends wrinkling, or bumped corners.  A better eye *might* discern the faintest color shift between the spine and covers, but we do not.  The contents are mildly age-toned, but show no spotting or previous ownership marks and the page edges are clean apart from minor top edge dust soiling.  The book retains a crisp, stiff feel, as if unread.  Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England.  When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career.  There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities.  Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming.  Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children ? ?the place to be poor and to write poems? ? that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet.  The manuscript of A Boy?s Will was completed in England and accepted for publication by David Nutt on 1 April 1913.  ?Yeats pronounced the poetry ?the best written in America for some time? and Frost received ?two extraordinary tributes in the Nation and the Chicago Dial and a superb review in the Academy.? (ANB)  A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost?s second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which ?Frost?s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.?  Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst ?launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever ?subjects? he pleased at a congenial college? and ?barding around,? his term for ?saying? poems in a conversational performance.?  (ANB)  By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943).  Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life as ?the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century? with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit.  Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961).  Bibliographic reference: Crane A3

        (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 belligerent nations are represented by stereotypical breeds of dog: the British bulldog, the French poodle and the German dachshund with a great bear representing Russia. The map is further embellished with the striding figure of Winston Churchill, dressed as a sailor to signify his role as First Lord of the Admiralty, holding numerous dog leads with battleships stretching out towards the continent. Similarly, the tsar of Russia is shown riding a large steamroller towards central and eastern Europe. The four columns of Emanuel's note to the lower margin of the map is typically jingoistic and closes with the refrain "All this, and more, may be seen depicted above. Search well and you may find many things. But not Peace. Peace has gone to the Dogs for the present..."

        Jennie Gerhardt

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1914 433 pages with frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 1/4") bound in original publisher's blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine and cover with black design in original jacket. First edition in first state binding and second state text.Jennie Gerhardt was Theodore Dreiser's second novel and his first true commercial success. Today it is generally regarded as one of his three best novels, along with Sister Carrie and An American Tragedy. As submitted to Harper and Brothers in 1911, Jennie Gerhardt was a powerful study of a woman tragically compromised by birth and fate. Harpers agreed to publish the book but was nervous about its subject matter and moral stance. Jennie has an illegitimate child by one man and lives out of wedlock with another - but Dreiser does not condemn her for her behavior. As a requirement for publication, Harpers insisted on cutting and revising the text. Although Dreiser fought against many of the cuts and succeeded in restoring some material, Harpers shortened the text by 16,000 words and completely revised its style and tone. These changes ultimately transformed Jennie Gerhardt from a blunt, carefully documented work of social realism to a touching love story merely set against a social background. Passages critical of organized religion and of the institution of marriage were reduced and altered. Perhaps most important, Jennie's point of view - her innate romantic mysticism - was largely edited out of the text. As a consequence, the central dialectic of the novel was skewed and the narrative thrown out of balance.Condition:Cloth spine lightly sunned with some rubbing, previous owner's signatures to front blank and rear paste down. Jacket panels and spine toned and chipped, tears at jacket joints and edges else a very good copy in about a very good infrequently found jacket.
