        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. .

        Hark! Hark! The Dogs do Bark! With Note by Walter Emanuel.

      Map dimensions 48.5 x 69.5 cm, overall 55.5 x 74.5 cm. Folding colour printed comic map of Europe, mounted on linen, folds between publisher's brown cloth boards with a printed title label to the upper cover. The cover label a little soiled, a little creasing at the folds, a single very short tear with no loss to the lower edge, a very good example overall.A richly coloured "Serio-Comique" or allegorical map of Europe in the early stages of the First World War. 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.

        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. $1,250. * 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.

        Lieu-Col. Ralph W. E. Beckett - 3rd Baron Grimthorpe Yorkshire Hussars

      Italy, Russia, France, 1914-1917. Archive of British peer Ralph William Ernest Beckett, 3rd Baron Grimthorpe, at the time serving in France as an officer of the Yorkshire Hussars, comprising 30 manuscript letters, 3 postcards, several receipts, 1 expense journal, and 5 photographs. Letters are all addressed to Beckett and penned by various family and friends, several from his wife, largely pertaining to the First World War and his father's exquisite estate in Italy, and features one letter with excellent content of his sister's Russian connections and participation in the Revolution. Most letters are accompanied by the original covers, most are 8vo. double-leafs. A large portrait photograph of Beckett taken circa 1914, shows him in formal Yorkshire Hussars uniform, the photo measuring 13,5 x 19,5 cm and mounted on thick cardstock. Also including two original photographs of Russian Prince and painter Pierre Troubetzkoy (1864-1936), who was in London in 1914 and who was most certainly affiliated with Ralph's sister the revolutionary enthusiast. Ralph William Ernest Beckett, 3rd Baron Grimthorpe (1891-1963), was best known as Captain Lord Grimthorpe, and was attached to the Yorkshire Hussars, having joined the regiment on 11 January 1914. With British Expeditionary Force 17th Crops, he was sent to France to fight in the Great War, earning the rank of Lieutenant. He was Lieutenant-Colonel of the Yorkshire Hussars from 1936 and 1940, and also fought in World War II, being mentioned in despatches. He held the office of Deputy Lieutenant of the West Riding of Yorkshire. Having inherited Villa Cimbrone in Italy, in 1917, he made it available to No. 1 Special Force as a rest and relaxation center during the Second World War. Ralph was later a banker and managed the firm Beckett & Co in Leeds, a private bank which issued its own notes, and which would later become part of the Westminster Bank. He also managed the aeronautical firm Airspeed Ltd. A well-known breeder of racehorses, his Fortina won the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1947 and Fragrant Mac won the Scottish Grand National in 1952. With the rank of Captain, Ralph Beckett, known as Lord Grinthorpe, participated in Allied campaigns in France with the British Expeditionary Force 17th Corps. There he received letters replete with commentary on the First World War as events unfolded in all parts of the globe, from his wife Mary, sister Lucille, other sympathetic relatives and friends. From the perspective of British nobility, this letter archive presents real imagery pf harsh sufferings and loss inflicted to individuals and communities by a war, oddly juxtaposed against the "sans souci" life of the privileged upper-class. On one hand reporting of bombings and tragedy, on the other pre-occupied with exquisite drapery and furnishings for a grand villa... some occasions sympathetic to those losing family and home, other occasions blind patriotism denying the possibility of national defeat... together the writers create a most unusual and somewhat paradoxical picture of wartime in Europe. Letters from his sister Lucille prove to be especially interesting as she was quite preoccupied with Russia and most enthusiastic to work alongside her Revolutionary Russian friends. In 1917 she was "in the know" of secret plans being conjured by radical youths; she was actively involved in promoting a propaganda magazine in Italy; she was invigorated by the revolutionary campaigns and envisioned her future in Russia endorsing change. Sir Winston Churchill was a guest at the Beckett's Italian villa and provided some good information regarding Italian law when Ralph inherited the historic property from his father, the latter being mentioned in a letter from Ralph's wife in 1917. Photographs of friends or acquaintances are presumably taken at Villa Cimbrone, identified as Captain Shaw-Kennedy [of the Coldstream Guards], Mrs. Menzies, Mr. Bertie Sheriffe, and the Ruissian Prince and artist Pierre Troubetzkoy. Beckett's receipts reveal some of his personal interests and commitments, such as horse racing and fine cigars, as well as the required accoutrements of a colonial mounted infantry. His sister Lucille Katherine Beckett wrote him in 1917, from Rome and from Tuscany, four letters and one postcard. One of the letters reveals her connection to Russian Revolutionaries and her personal involvement in the movement. Her correspondence largely discusses matters of their father's estate, in particular the Villa Cimbrone, lawyers in Salerno addressing Italian laws, issues of a cistern to water the gardens, a tennis court, beautiful Chinese furniture, Russian books, and other assets contained within it. She speaks of her Russian connections, likely through her husband Count Otto Czernin von und zu Chudenitz, whom she married in 1903, thus becoming a member of an ancient Bohemian noble family of Czechoslovakia. A scant few references to the war appear in her correspondence, including encouragement for her younger brother Ralph. Lucille further discusses her fascination for Russia, her revolutionary participation in spreading propaganda following the February Revolution (March 1917) and abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, and her zeal for continued involvement in the cause. Excerpts from Lucille's letter dated 25 April 1917: "How splendid the offensive has been in the West, the Boches must be beginning to feel fairly sick, if we go on this way we will have them... they will have to draw back... though judging the way they have been treating the towns of France which they evacuate... it is rather hoped that they will be forced to one for peace before evacuating Belgium... It would be ghastly if they treated Brussels, Liege, Antwerp etc as they are treating French towns. They are perfectly capable of it..." "Heaven knows where I shall live after this war. I think it is a question of Italy or Russia... Russia tempts me tremendously especially now, since the Revolution it's the most interesting country in the world... I have several friends there who are in with all the Revolutionaries, and who will certainly play a prominent rôle, so one would be right in the midst of things and find plenty of work to do." "I simply horrify Aunt Kitty with all this, she says I am a Revolutionary and will come to a bad end, and don't think people ought to accumulate wealth, but in spite of Aunt Kitty's horror..." "I am getting to know some the Italians who are really working and doing something for the country and who are in the midst of the young foreward movement... I hear what they are doing, their plans for the future, and I see Italy from an entirely new point of view." "... I know those Czechs and hear about the Slavs movement and what their aims and ideals are for their nations, both in Poland, Bohemia, and the Balkans, and I've been able to do my small bit in the way of helping. Then I am trying to push a magazine, a sort of artistic and literary one, and I have plans for things that may be done at Ravello, so you see life is deeply interesting." "... I am far too strong and energetic to lead an idle society life... Of course the only regular work I do at present is the Red Cross and Lady Rodd's shop..." End Excerpts. Thirteen (13) letters and two (2) postcards are from his first wife Mary Alice Archdale and contain details of their personal life, including their interest in his late father's Italian residence, Villa Cimbrone at Ravello, now a famous and prestigious hotel. One of her letters mentions Sir Winston Churchill, who is known to have visited the Becketts at their villa. Naturally, she reports on war news, bombings in London, and the like. When writing the earliest letters Mary was still his fiancé, living at Bushey House in the Hertsmere borough of Hertfordshire. She frequently signs, "your devoted and loving Tiny M." or simply M. They couple married on 3 September 1914. [Mary was the daughter of Colonel Mervyn Henry Archdale, Irish soldier, High Sheriff, MP for Fermanagh, Freemason, and inheritor of Castle Archdale. Her mother was Mary de Bathe born into baronetcy.] Excerpts from the letters written by Beckett's wife Mary: "Pemberton seemed a little surprised you had not written or given me verbal instructions as to your intentions with regard to Ravello... having heard at length from Mr. Churchill in the matter of Italian Law which demands you saying whether or no you intend taking Cimbrone with the obligations attached..." "Cowans... here for dinner... unpleasant remarks... 'The Italians will certainly take Trieste... The French will take the Plateau'... However he was most optimistic and fully expecting the Germans to crack up ere long..." "I hear the Nicke de Bathe has given up his job on the staff and went into the Flying Corps to France..." "... they have been suffering in America... it already has been proved of Germany, evil determination to force a war on the world, one which let's hope will teach her a hard lesson and make it impossible to repeat the crime again......" "For the moment the news looks fairly grim. Russia is so depressing... movements in France... moonlight raids are so awful the damage they do, when I went to London on Wednesday ... smashed and shattered houses... also dropped a bomb on Charing X & hospital and the little theatre" "... Cowans is coming over for tea, he goes to Paris I fancy tomorrow to have a jolly with the Duchess of R. [Russia?] who is there for more than one reason I believe..." End Excerpts. [The Mr. Cowans mentioned in the above letters may be General Sir John Stephen Cowans (1862-1921), Quartermaster-General to the Forces, who in 1919 received the highest order of Greece.] Further correspondence came from a variety of army friends and other family members, with encouraging words and informative news of family and war. His "Aunt Queenie" seems to be acquainted with the Yorkshire Hussars, perhaps through her husband. Excerpts from a letter written by "Aunt Queenie": "I was awfully glad too to get news of the dear old Regiment. I quite understand how you must wish to get... in the forefront of the battle, but the war is not over yet alas! and the occasion may yet arise when the Y.H.'s may be called upon to save a situation... the Germans are getting fretful internally and I pray that the seeds of Revolution will grow and thrive." "... I am very busy with the hospital and 'on duty' all this month." End Excerpts. Ralph William Ernest Beckett, 3rd Baron Grimthorpe (1891-1963) was the son of British banker and Conservative politician Ernest William Beckett, 2nd Baron Grimthorpe (1856-1917) and his first wife Lucy Tracy Lee (1864-1891). Ernest Beckett sat in the House of Commons as Member of Parliament for Whitby from 1885 until 1905 when he inherited the Grimthorpe peerage. He later became a partner in the banking firm of Beckett & Co, of Leeds, owned by his father. He was also a captain in the Yorkshire Hussars Yeomanry Cavalry. Ralph would succeed him at the bank and also join the Yorkshire Hussars regiment. In 1904, Ernest Beckett bought a ruined farmhouse outside Ravello, on the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy. He expanded it and transformed it into a fortified palatial residence with towers, battlements and a mixture of Arabic, Venetian and Gothic details. He called it Villa Cimbrone. Between the house and the cliff edge he redevelopped the garden, high above the Gulf of Salerno. The garden is an eccentric mixture of formal, English rose beds, Moorish tea houses, picturesque grottoes and classical temples. After Earnest Beckett's death in 1917, the villa passed to his son Ralph. Ernest Beckett's daughter Lucy (Lucille Katherine Beckett, 1884-1979) also lived at the villa, where she was a keen gardener and breeder of roses, including the "Rose of Ravello" in the thirties. Ralph made Villa Cimbrone available to No. 1 Special Force as a rest and relaxation center during the Second World War. Many famous visitors came to the villa during the Beckett family's ownership including Sir Winston Churchill, Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, E. M. Forster, John Maynard Keynes, and Lytton Strachey, D. H. Lawrence, Vita Sackville-West, Edward James, Diana Mosley, Henry Moore, T. S. Eliot, Jean Piaget, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, Greta Garbo and her then-lover Leopold Stokowski. The villa was sold in 1960 to the Vuilleumier family, who used it first as a private family home, and for the past few years as a hotel. Around the time of the Second World War the villa began to see decline. Marco Vuilleumier decided to undertake the task of recovering, conserving and protecting the cultural heritage site. It has indeed been restored to its former standing as a prestigious historical site and botanical garden. For centuries an aristocratic residence, Villa Cimbrone is now an exclusive, refined Hotel de Charme overlooking the Bay of Sorrento. The villa is now composed of many salvaged architectural elements from other parts of Italy and elsewhere. Little of the original structure remains visible. The first reliable mentions of Villa Cimbrone can be found around the 11th century, intermingling with those of Ravello's golden era. The origins of its name come from the rocky outcrop on which it stands: this was part of a large estate with lush vegetation covering over eight hectares that was known as "Cimbronium". It initially belonged to the aristocratic Acconciajoco family. In the mid 1300s it passed into the hands of the powerful and wealthy Fuscos, a noble family from Ravello who were related to the Pitti family in Florence and the D'Angiò family from Naples. Ralph's mother is an American heiress Lucy Tracy Lee (1864-1891), who died after birthing him. Known to her friends as Luie. She and Ernest Beckett, 2nd Baron Grimthorpe, married on 4 October 1883. Their marriage was announced in Vanity Fair. They had 3 children: Lucy Katherine Beckett (born 1884), Helen Muriel Beckett (born 1886), and Ralph William Ernest Beckett (born 1891). Luie died after bearing him their son and heir, Ralph William Ernest Beckett. [Ernest also fathered a son, Lancelot, and a daughter, Violet, with Mrs Alice Keppel, the mistress of the Prince of Wales and great-grandmother of the present Duchess of Cornwall. Both children were illegitimate. Ralph therefore, was a half-brother to Violet Trefusis (née Keppel), daughter of royal mistress Alice Keppel.] Ralph's great uncle Edmund Beckett, 1st Baron Grimthorpe, an architect and horologist, designed the clock mechanism of Big Ben. Yorkshire Hussars in the First World War: In May 1916 it was decided that the static nature of the war required a rethink of the cavalry role and that the cavalry regiments were to work as units within a Corps, and that the Corps Commander would control their movements. On 10th May 1916 the Yorkshire Hussars were reunited as a regiment under 17th Corps, at Gouy-en-Ternois. On 1st June there was a new Commanding Officer, Lt-Col W Pepys of 13th Hussars. They later moved to Berles, between Arras and St Pol, where they remained for more than a year. The initial delight at being a united regiment with the prospect of cavalry action began to wear off as winter approached and the new year produced no more hope. In Nov 1916 their Commanding Officer left and was replaced by newly promoted Lt-Col Eley. They spent the winter at Warne and then moved to Berles and Habarcq. Here, on 14th Aug 1917, they were given the sad news that the regiment was to be broken up and used as reinforcements to various infantry battalions. Russian Prince and painter Pietro (Pierre) Troubetzkoy (1864-1936) was from a cosmopolitan family, his father being a politician. Pietro made painting his career, although he also sculpted. He studied under Daniele Ranzoni and Achille Tominetti. He travelled to England as a youth of only eighteen and received commissions from a number of society figures, being elected to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1891. It is testament to his juvenile talent that among these was the English Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone (the portrait is now in the collection of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh). From England he went to New York and Washington, taking commissions and exhibiting his paintings at all the principle shows. In 1896 Prince Troubetzkoy married American novelist and playwright Amélie Louise Rives, the couple having met at a party hosted by the famous Irish playwright Oscar Wilde. Amelie learned everything she could about her new husband, including his life as a painter of portraits for members of the aristocracy. Together they travelled extensively, and made a trip to London in 1914. They lived in America and also in Europe. In 1914 novel, Amelie published a novel titled "World's End" which was reputed to be the best seller in New York City at the time. Pietro died in Virginia in 1936. Among his more acclaimed commissions were portraits of the American judge, John Marshall Harlan (collection of the Supreme Court of the United States), of Anna Maria Gallina and Giacinto Gallina, of his own brothers Luigi and Paolo, of the Contessa Cassini, Conte Giuseppe della Gherardesca, Miss Bessie Abbott, General George A. Gariestone, Viscountess Castlereagh, Mrs Benjamin Guinness and the acclaimed American artist James Jebusa Shannon (exhibited, Society Portraits, Colnagi and Clarendon Galleries, 1985, no. 65). His style owed something to the work of John Singer Sargent and the present work is typical of the artist's broad handling of paint, with highlights applied with a somewhat dry brush. Today his works are represented in many private collections, and in the Galleria d'Arte moderna in Milan. Pietro's younger brother Paolo became internationally acclaimed as a sculptor. Pietro's father, Prince Troubetskoy, was a Russian diplomat and general, and was sometime Governor of Smolensk. On a diplomatic mission to Italy in the 1860s the Prince met a well known American singer by the name of Ada Winans in Florence, and together they set up home at Ghiffa on Lake Maggiore. He was already married to a Russian at the time, and it was not until 1870 that he divorced his first wife and was able to recognise the three children born of Ada; the eldest of these, who subsequently inherited the title, was Pietro, who was born in Milan in 1864. An interest in botany led the Prince to create spectacular gardens at their home, Villa Ada, where he and his wife entertained many well-known bohemian figures of the day. [Pietro Troubetzkoy's papers are held at the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia. The papers of the Rives family 1822-1945 are also held there.]

        The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists.

      First edition. 8vo. (vi), 390, (2) pp. Publisher's black cloth, gilt lettered to the spine and upper board. Minimal wear to the spine ends, a few faint marks, an excellent copy. Published under the pseudonym of Robert Tressall, later corrected to Tressell when the unexpurgated version was finally published just over 40 years later, the book was written by the Irish author Robert Coker, who later went by the surname Noonan. Very much a work of working class fiction, written by a painter and decorator and set in a fictional working class town - Mugsborough - the work was politically radical. The author struggled to have the book published in his lifetime and only after his demise in 1911 was his daughter, Kathleen, able to bring the original manuscript to the attention of the publishers Grant Richards. This first edition was much edited by her friend Jessie Pope, presumably to make it more palatable to the more bourgeois book buying public. Nonetheless, its socialist credentials stood out and the book proved hugely influential, decades later George Orwell in the Manchester Evening News recommended it as "a book that everyone should read."

        Voyages d'Ibn Batoutah. Texte arabe, accompagné d'une traduction par C. Defrémery et le Dr. B. R. Sanguinetti. Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, 1914-1926.

      1914. 8vo. 4 vols. and 1 index vol. Original printed wrappers with dust jackets. Significant eyewitness account of the Arabian Peninsula during the Middle Ages. Over a period of thirty years, the Muslim Moroccan explorer Abu-'Abd Allah Muhammad ibn Batutah (1304-77?) visited most of the known Islamic world, including North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa, Southern Europe and Eastern Europe in the West, to the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China in the East - a distance surpassing that covered by his near-contemporary Marco Polo. Ibn Battuta is considered one of the greatest travellers of all time. He journeyed more than 75,000 miles, a figure unsurpassed by any individual explorer until the coming of the Steam Age some 450 years later. After returning home from his travels in 1354, Ibn Battuta dictated an account of his journeys to Ibn Juzayy, a scholar whom he had previously met in Granada. This account is the only source for Ibn Battuta's adventures. For centuries his book was obscure, even within the Muslim world, but in the early 19th century extracts were published in German and English based on manuscripts discovered in the Middle East, containing abridged versions of Ibn Juzayy's Arabic text. During the French occupation of Algeria in the 1830s, five manuscripts were discovered in Constantine, including two that contained more complete versions of the text. "These manuscripts were brought back to the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and studied by the French scholars Charles Defrémery and Beniamino Sanguinetti. Beginning in 1853, they published a series of four volumes containing the Arabic text, extensive notes and a translation into French. Defrémery and Sanguinetti's printed text has now been translated into many other languages while Ibn Battuta has grown in reputation and is now a well-known figure" (Wikipedia). - Untrimmed, partly uncut copy. Some browning due to paper. Spine chipped. Rare. Cf. Macro 1249. GAL II, p. 333. Henze II, 682 (all for the 1853-59 first edition). Carter, Robert A. Sea of Pearls, p. 63.
