        [Photo Album]: Construction of the St. Lawrence Pulp & Lumber Corporation Plant

      Chandler, Quebec: Aberthaw Construction Company. 1914. Oblong small octavo. Measuring 5.5" x 7". String tied album without boards. Contains 118 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring 3.75" x 4.75", with captions. Lacking the boards thus good only with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by an employee for the Aberthaw Construction Company of Boston, shortened here as A.C. Co., while working on the construction of the St. Lawrence Pulp & Lumber Corporation Plant between 1913 and 1914. The album begins with a schematic entitled "Job 993 Pabos Mills, P.Q. Progress Sheet." The page details an expansive plant that was to be built over the next year which included a saw mill, electrolytic plant, hot pond, and pulp storage, among other things. The men working on the project were given onsite housing including "married quarters," an "engineer house," as well as a section of the camp which contained a large community of Italian workers dubbed "little Italy." The site also came equipped with a company store. The album documents views of the worker's quarters as well as the progress of the construction. Early photos show the temporary saw mill, the excavation of the main boiler house, and construction of the pulp storage building. The photos show the men on the site with drills and other construction equipment working throughout the year. One photo is captioned "quarry before blast" and another from August 13, 1913 reads "building site looking East." There are also photos of the horses that were used to cart away debris. A railroad was also built to haul supplies to the plant. A photo here shows a locomotive wreck at the site.The men were together for nearly two years, the project was supposed to be completed in September of 1915, and created a small community which is seen throughout the album. There are photos of the Italian men getting paid, the cook shack, the living room of the engineering house, and the hotel on the site. One photo shows two men in an early automobile and another shows a man in winter clothes posing outside the construction office. There are also photos of the natural sights of the area including snapshots of snow covered trees, a dam at a nearby reservoir, and the North River. A section from the 1919 edition of Concrete Magazine discusses "Concrete Construction during Winter" and cites the Aberthaw job at the paper plant as an example. "Among many jobs successfully handled in winter a notable one handled by the Aberthaw Construction Co was the large pulp mill of the St. Lawrence Pulp & Lumber Corp at Chandler Quebec. [It] started in the late summer and carried through a severe Canadian winter with temperatures as low as 25 below. One saving feature of the work was that some of the buildings had wood roofs and by taking advantage of the best weather and placing concrete on the warmest days the men were kept busy on roof construction and other items on days when concrete could not be handled." They continue by saying that since "extraordinary supervision was exercised" the plant was built on time and without a hitch.An extensive collection of construction snapshots in Canada in 1914. .

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

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1914. First Trade. Hardcover. Very Good. NIELSEN, Kay. 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.

        Photo-Documentation of Occupational Therapy for Wounded and Mentally Ill Soldiers of World War I, in Transylvania Between 1914-1917

      Dated between 1914 and 1918 in Kolozsvár - 22 original, vintage, black and white photographs, mounted on cardboard. Many labelled on verso in Hungarian some in German, these inscriptions imply that the photographs belonged to Mrs. Zsigmond Zombory, the developer and leader of the therapy. Many photos are labelled by her, and some of the images were probably exhibited in Germany in München. Various image sizes: 15,5-18 × 21-24 cm. Occupational therapy and handicraft programs, like woodworking or basket making, became important and known as a health care profession in the Progressive Era of the first decades of the 20th century, and successfully developed as a rehabilitation method during the First World War. It used the ideas of the Arts and Crafts Movement, claimed that the occupation of the patient's body and mind fastens the recovery process. This was considered rather important in the armies of World War I, to make the soldiers return to the battlefield as quickly as possible. Most of the evidences of the use of occupational therapy during WWI are related to the Allied Powers especially to the US Army, which makes this unique photographic documentation particularly important and interesting, as it proves the very early occurrence of the method in the army of the Central Powers. The method was developed, and the therapy was led by Mrs. Zsigmond Zombory in Kolozsvár (Transylvania; today Cluj-Napoca, Romania) the city that served as military medical centre during the war. This collection of photographs belonged to her, and were presented as illustrations for an exhibition probably in Münich, Germany. Mrs. Zombory began the therapy already in September 1914 (img. I.), and soon more the 400 (img. I. 1.) Hungarian and German (img. I.3) soldiers participated in the program. The project enjoyed the support of both the civilian (img. I.10) and military leaders (img. II.), and covered the entire city. Many public buildings of Kolozsvár served as medical treatment facility and even children from the local elementary school participated in it with a contribution of making mat slippers for the patients (img. I.6). The program was extended geographically too, the handicrafts were exhibited in nearby cities (img. III. and IV.). Very less is known about Mrs. Zombory the socially aware noble woman and we could not trace any documentation of her therapy in Kolozsvár during WWI. The majority of the images are in good, very good condition, some faded, few rubbed. Cardboards stained, chipped, worn. 2 board broken that effects the photo. Please ask for detailed condition report! 22 original, vintage, black and white photographs, mounted on cardboard. Many labelled on verso in Hungarian some in German, these inscriptions imply that the photographs belonged to Mrs. Zsigmond Zombory, the developer and leader of the therapy. Many photos are labelled by her, and some of the images were probably exhibited in Germany in München. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bradley Martin copy (item #2964), with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Spine and edges slightly darkened; lower fore-edge and heel of spine very lightly frayed; some professional internal restoration.

This is a review copy, with the review slip loosely inserted requesting that no reviews appear before its London publication date. Although never published, the collection had been printed before, by George Roberts at Maunsel, the Dublin publishers who by July 1910 had destroyed an entire edition of 1,000 because of "objectionable passages", inciting Joyce's pasquinade "Gas from a Burner". The collection contains Joyce's masterpiece in the short form, "The Dead". Copies in surviving dust jackets are notably rare.

Ils garderont de leur collaboration à cette revue un socle esthétique commun et exposeront leurs œuvres sous le nom de Collaborateurs de la Gazette du bon ton. Les planches représentent les robes des créateurs de l'époque : Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet, Doucet. Certaines planches ne figurent aucun modèle réel, mais seulement l'idée que l'illustrateur se fait de la mode du jour. [ ] La naissance de la Gazette du bon ton est un événement dans l'histoire de l'édition de mode. C'est la première revue qui allie souci esthétique, exigence de beauté et d'unité plastique."

        [Photo Album]: Life at Agnes Memorial Tuberculosis Sanatorium

      Denver, Colorado. 1914-1915. Oblong octavo. String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. A collection of 67 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 4" with captions. Wear at the extremities of the album and a cord replace, still near fine with the photos fine. A photographic account of Meriwether's stay at a Tuberculosis sanatorium. Agnes Memorial Sanatorium, now part of the Lowry Air Force Base, was a non-profit, a medical campus for low-income, early-onset tuberculosis victims who could probably be successfully treated and returned to work. The complex was built in 1902 on what is now Sixth Avenue in Denver's Lowry neighborhood by Lawrence C. Philips as a charitable endeavor in honor of his mother who had died of TB. Philips began his career as a clerk at Carnegie Steel and worked his way up to become the company's first vice-president. He subsequently moved to Colorado where he became a noted philanthropist and served as a senator from 1918 to 1930.The photographs are mostly captioned and show the facilities buildings, staff, and patients. A number of the photographs show patients engaged in recreation including shooting, billiards, Halloween festivities (some in blackface), and Christmas parties as well as resting and dining in bed. A fascinating archive of quality restorative medical care for the "White Plague." .

        Sports & Divertissements. Musique d'Erik Satie. Dessins de Ch. Martin.

      Paris Lucien Vogel 1914 - First edition, oblong folio (40.5 x 44.5 cm), title page signed by Vogel with introduction and a score by Erik Satie at the back, one leaf with limitation and index, 20 Satie's manuscript scores in facsimile throughout, each with 20 plates by Martin hand-coloured in pochoir by Jules Saudé, 42 leaves in total. Original card portfolio covered in paper with an all-over pictorial design printed in pink, large label printed in maroon on light brown paper mounted on the front cover, original pink silk ties attached to one side of lower cover (missing from 5 other sides), corners and hinges rubbed and chipped, spine faded. Limited edition of 225 copies, this one number 71. Presentation copy signed by Lucien Vogel. Sports & Divertissements is a striking collaboration combining Satie's masterly avant-garde compositions with Martin's playful designs. Gillmor characterised these piano pieces as Satie's 'finest creative achievement, a superb marriage of style and idea, a crystallization of virtually everything that had preceded it, the purest distillation of an aesthetic ideal toward which he had been groping for a quarter century'. Martin, one of the most distinctive Art Deco illustrators, contributed to Gazette du Bon Ton, Harper's Bazar and many of the most luxurious publications of the age. A trade issue comprising just one plate was also published, with which this edition is sometimes confused. Gillmor, 'Musico-Poetic Form', in Canadian Music University Review 8, 30.

        Amantium Irae. Letters to Two Friends 1864-1867.

      Doves Press, Hammersmith 1914 - One of only 150 copies, the smallest limitation of all the Doves Press books. Photogravure portrait frontispiece. Printed in red and black. 8vo., original limp vellum by the Doves Bindery. Very good. Inscribed by Cobden-Sanderson, interestingly in the year before the official publication date, to Maude Stanley "in memoriam from her old affectionate friend, the writer C-S 14 October 1913". Maude Stanley (1833-1915) was Lady Amberley's sister and an important women's welfare activist - described by her nephew, the Amberley's son Bertrand Russell as "stern and gloomy aunt Maude" although he adored her and her talking parrot. The book is an attractive printing of letters from Cobden-Sanderson to his dear friends, Lord and Lady Amberley between 1864 and 1867. The letters begin when they were unmarried but C-S's friend The Hon. Lady Katherine Stanley, a campaigner for women's suffrage, married Lord Amberley in late 1864 and died in 1874, Lord Amberley died in 1876 and this is his tribute to them. The letters are spririted and extraordinary and a great insight into Cobden-Sanderson's thoughts including 2 printings of his abstract pen sketches of his state of mind which are as one might imagine with statements like "We must endure the dull & dreary monotony until the young shoots appear, the germs of a new era of Belief and fiery Energy, whtn the fabled gods shall have entirely anished and man be striking on in harmony with the deep buried music of the world! Adieu! I am blank today & shallow & stupid, but from the depths of it all look up to the light for something god-like indeed to set me on fire"

        L'ILLUSTRATION. Dessins, documents photographiques, cartes, panoramas.

      - Revista francesa magníficamente ilustrada con fotografías, mapas, desplegables, dibujos y bellas vistas panorámicas. Disponemos de 37 volúmenes correlativos que abarcan desde el julio de 1914 hasta Diciembre de 1931. Encuadernación homogénea en media piel con punteras. Muy buen estado de conservación. L’Ilustration tuvo una dilatada existencia (1843-1944) y fue una de las revistas de más calidad de las editadas en Francia en su época. El lote que aquí ofrecemos recoge toda la Primera Guerra Mundial. Aunque en los primeros números, recién empezada la Guerra, los lectores no encontraron ninguna fotografía de las operaciones militares pues la ley de 5 de agosto de 1914 reprimía las indiscreciones de la prensa en tiempos de guerra imponiendo en cinco artículos perentorios un bloqueo feroz a la información, a partir de 1915 se publican numerosas fotografías del conflicto y se dan detalles de su evolución. Los dibujos de Georges Scott, de Jonas, de L. Sabattier y de Jules Simon jalonan la epopeya. L‘Illustration al igual que otros órganos de prensa insufló un fuerte poder a los combatientes, una fe ciega que ayudó a los soldados franceses a pelear en aquella espantosa matanza. Henriot bosqueja a los soldados con inconsciente bravura. El genial caricaturista, como todos sus colegas de L’Illustration, llama a la unión de todas las Francias, exalta el coraje del pueblo belga y comienza a denunciar delante del mundo los crímenes del enemigo. Excelente lote en muy buen estado de conservación que realzará cualquier biblioteca. LIBROS ANTIGUOS

        [Photo Album]: Life at Agnes Memorial Tuberculosis Sanatorium

      Denver, Colorado. 1914-1915. Oblong octavo. String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. A collection of 67 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 4" with captions. Wear at the extremities of the album and a cord replace, still near fine with the photos fine. A photographic account of Meriwether's stay at a Tuberculosis sanatorium. Agnes Memorial Sanatorium, now part of the Lowry Air Force Base, was a non-profit, a medical campus for low-income, early-onset tuberculosis victims who could probably be successfully treated and returned to work. The complex was built in 1902 on what is now Sixth Avenue in Denver's Lowry neighborhood by Lawrence C. Philips as a charitable endeavor in honor of his mother who had died of TB. Philips began his career as a clerk at Carnegie Steel and worked his way up to become the company's first vice-president. He subsequently moved to Colorado where he became a noted philanthropist and served as a senator from 1918 to 1930.The photographs are mostly captioned and show the facilities buildings, staff, and patients. A number of the photographs show patients engaged in recreation including shooting, billiards, Halloween festivities (some in blackface), and Christmas parties as well as resting and dining in bed. A fascinating archive of quality restorative medical care for the "White Plague." .

        Katalog wystawy E.M. Liliena w Towarzystwie przyjaciol sztuk pieknych we Lwowie 1914.

      Small 4to (227 x 183 mm). Original illustrated wrappers; pp. 91, [4, advertisements], pp. 45 to 91 printed on yellow stock, with tipped-in frontispiece reproducing in photogravure an etched self-portrait of Lilien working at an intaglio press, numerous black-and-white reproductions in the text; backstrip missing, wrappers lightly dusted, corner of tipped-in frontispiece and front cover with vertical fold; otherwise very well perserved; provenance: neat collector's stamps Rudolf Mekicki of Lvov on front cover and on title, that of the architect Stanislaw Stefan Mekicki at the end, Julia Mierka Mekicka's bookplate inside front cover. This is the extremely rare first exhibition catalogue of the first Zionist graphic artist and book illustrator, designer for the international Socialist movement (some of his designs were used even by US Socialists), and photographer of the iconic Theodor Herzl portrait. Born in Drohobicz (of later Bruno Schulz fame) in 1874 he travelled together with Boris Schatz between 1906 and 1918 to Ottoman Palestine, founded the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and established the design style of Zionism and Israel. Provenance: Rudolf Mekicki (1887-1942) was a Lvov heraldic artist, collector and designer of bookplates, book covers, bonds and banknotes who provided the institutions and collectors of the capital of Galicia with bookplates. His wife Julia, son (Stanislaw) and daughter (Krystina, died in 2010) continued in this tradition, designing and collecting bookplates. Not in Thieme-Becker; OCLC locates copies in the Getty, and in NUKAT (including the Polish National Library); not in the Leo Baeck Institute (who have a Lilien collection), COPAC or the British Library.

This collection has recently been acquired by Herr Klas Fåhræus, of Brevik, Stockholm. And supplement, illustrating a few interesting pieces of bronze, ceramics and jade . from the collection of E. A. Strehlneek, which has recently been acquired by Herr Klas Fåhræus, of Brevik, Stockholm.

      Commercial Press Limited, Shanghai 1914 - First edition. highlights. Demy Quarto. Gilt pictorial brocaded silk bound in the Chinese fashion. Very good: Internally fine, some discolouration and wear to the covers. Good, some wear and tear. 327 + 75 Pages. Illustrated in colour and black and white. Text in English and Chinese. An highly interesting and rare work mainly on Chinese paintings. The supplent includes Chinese works of art such as porcelain and jades. Strehlneek's first collection was privately sold in Shanghai in 1913 to Klas Fåhraeus - a Swedish collector - and then resold in Stockholm after Fåhraeus's death in 1926, in the city's gallery auction of Chinese art. In addition to participating in the 1914 China art exhibition patronized by the Swedish Crown Prince, and another exhibition of Chinese art in Stockholm University in 1918, the auction helped to promote Scandinavian interest in China's thousand-year-long pictorial art tradition, as well as to develop an enthusiasm for sinology and collecting guhua.RARE!

        Die Nordströmsche Gravitationstheorie vom Standpunkt des absoluten Differentialkalküls,’ pp. 321-328 in Annalen der Physik, 4. Folge, Band 44, Heft 2.

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth 1914 - Complete journal issue, 8vo, pp. 177-336. Original printed wrappers (one leaf at front and five leaves at rear), front wrapper with a few small chips (no loss of text), spine worn with some loss of paper (just affecting the ‘A’ in Annalen). First edition, of “considerable interest in the history of general relativity because it contains Einstein’s first treatment of a gravitation theory in which general covariance is strictly obeyed . and particularly notable for its new derivation of the field equations” (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 236). Although Einstein and Grossmann had made significant progress with their ‘Entwurf’ theory of 1913, using the tensor calculus of Levi-Civita and Ricci, it was still a theory in which the equivalence principle in general did not hold (i.e., under particular coordinate transformations the gravitational field equations were not covariant). Einstein attempted to give various ‘physical’ arguments in order to account for this deficiency, but an important step towards obtaining general covariance was made when Einstein and Fokker, the next year, examined an alternative gravitational theory, in the framework of tensor calculus, and found that using just the condition that the velocity of light is constant, and independent of the position of the physical point, they were able to derive generally covariant field equations for this theory. “After the Einstein-Grossmann (1913) paper, Einstein’s next significant references to the curvature tensor and general covariance occur in a paper that Einstein wrote early in 1914 together with a young Dutch physicist, Adriaan D. Fokker. This paper is a discussion of a gravitational theory proposed by Gunnar Nordström, a Finnish physicist then working on the problem of finding a gravitational theory compatible with the principles of special relativity. Einstein and Fokker showed that Nordström’s scalar theory can be rewritten as a metric theory of gravitation [i.e., in the framework of tensor calculus], using only generally covariant equations, if one assumes that the metric tensor is conformally related to the Minkowski metric tensor of special relativity. They phrased the latter requirement as follows: ‘Nordström’s theory is based on the assumption that, by proper choice of reference system, it is possible to satisfy the principle of the constancy of the velocity of light’. Thus, they not only assumed the metric tensor to be conformally Minkowskian, but also adopted conformally Cartesian coordinates” (Stachel: Einstein and the History of General Relativity, p. 82). “They derived its basic equations [the gravitational field equations of Nordström’s theory] in in a very simple way, directly from the condition of the constant velocity of light and Lorentz covariance. This was an important step towards the final tensor equations of general relativity of November 1915” (Einstein Studies, vol. 10, p. 285). Einstein and Fokker concluded their paper remarking that it might be possible that a similar derivation of the field equations would be possible in the Einstein-Grossmann theory without need of the previous physical assumptions. “Thus, early in 1914, just fifty years after Maxwell’s first attempt at a gravitation field theory, Einstein was not quite there but he was closing in, as the final remark of the Einstein-Fokker paper clearly indicates.” (Pais, p. 237).
