        Lavengro

      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. Pages are bright with the some spots to the endpapers and the odd spot throughout. Overall: FINE..

        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]

      Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Berlin 1914 - 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. [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.

        East of the Sun and West of the Moon: Old Tales From the North

      Hodder & Stoughton, London 1914 - 206 p. 25 tipped in colour plates and over 25 b&w drawings by Kay Nielsen. Pictorial endpapers. Blue cloth hardcover with gold impressing. Small stain on frontispiece tissue guard. Thumbing and minor stains scattered throughout. Peter Christen Asbjornsen (1812-1885) and Jorgen Engebretsen Moe (1813-1882) were scholars and collectors of Norwegian folklore. To Norwegians, the names Asbjornsen and Moe have become synonymous with traditional folk tales, the way the name "Brothers Grimm" is associated with German tales. This collection of 15 Norwegian folk tales includes all of Kay Nielsen's original 25 colour plates and the black and white illustrations. Nielsen (1886-1957) was a Danish illustrator known for his Art Nouveau style (see the Art Nouveau troll on page 176). This is a great book from the "golden age of illustration" which began c. 1900 when printing technology developed to the point that drawings and paintings could be reproduced with reasonable facility. The age lasted until c.1930, after which rising costs made such beautiful books unaffordable for much of the public. The stories combine realism with the supernatural in a combination sometimes strange, sometimes humorous. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
