        1914 HANDWRITTEN SPORTS DIARY of MLB NY YANKEES BASEBALL PLAYER ALEX "TOM" BURR

      New York 1914. New York, 1914. HANDWRITTEN DIARY of ALEX THOMAS BURR who was a MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYER for the NEW YORK YANKEES in 1914. Diary for the Year 1914, with diary entries for February 27 through June 6, 1914. A.T. Burr's ownership signature is on the front free endpaper. There are 90 daily pages with his handwritten entries (the February to June period), followed by a page of addresses, and then 40 pages of detailed daily expenses. Softcover, leather bound blank book titled "Daylogue For All Years" containing lined pages with printed daily dates (each page a separate day), gilt title on the cover, gilt page edges, 4.5x6 inches. Burr was on the New York Yankees for the entire 1914 season. He was brought in as a Pitcher, having had exceptional seasons at Choate prep school. "One of the most promising ballplayers I have ever seen." - Big Ed Walsh, Hall of Famer. Though an outstanding prospect, and a widely reported prize catch by the Yanks, Burr spent his year in the Majors pitching for batting practices, in exhibition games, and sitting on the bench. He ended up playing in only one major league game, and that was as a substitute outfielder for one half inning. Because he was with the team for the season, and because he was a literate writer, Burr conveys what it was like to be brought into the Yanks as a highly sought after prospect, moving around with the team, spending time with his teammates, getting scolded by the team's manager, getting paid for doing nothing, etc. Burr writes a daily log of what he did, saw and thought, including his growing increasingly tired of sitting on the bench, noting teams and scores of various Yankee games, rainouts, eating out with friends and teammates, batting practice, going to plays, who he is dating, killing time by playing cards, gambling, traveling by train and bus, playing at the polo fields, working out, what time he woke up, etc. At the back he notes daily expenses such as car fare, haircuts, food, cigarettes, etc. An exceptional, personal, handwritten account of a season with the New York Yankees, by a literate and observant young man, whose life was soon after cut short when he died piloting a plane in France in WWI. GOOD Condition: The covers are worn at their spine ends, edges and folds, but are still sturdy; the gilt edges have some scratches but the gilt remains bright; the front and rear pastedowns are starting to pull from the covers; the inner pages are nice and clean with handwriting is bright, clear and fully legible. Here are some excerpts from various daily entries (I put notable names in caps): February 27: Left Chicago 6:35 with GEORGE WRIGHT for Houston, Texas, training camp (for) New York Americans... February 28: ...Met Mr. Irwin (ARTHUR ALBERT IRWIN) and sixteen players... Played stud all afternoon with Doc Barrett (CHARLES "DOC" BARRETT), JIMMY WALSH, Maisel (FRITZ MAISEL), Hutchinson. Won about six bucks. March 2: ...Warmed up a bit, hit a few, ran around field twice and walked in. Arm felt fine. Legs tired and stiff... Mr. Chance (FRANK CHANCE) spoke about training rules. March 25: Arrived at Birmingham at 11 am. No game on account of rain. Left at 3 o'clock for Atlanta. Played poker all the way to Atlanta. Arrived there at 8.15. Shot craps until 11.30. Lost. April 2: ...Had breakfast, went out to Polo Grounds. Got new uniform and locker 11. Looks like I might stay for a while... Had lunch, went over to Brooklyn for game. We lost 5-4. Pieh (CY PIEH) forced a man in and lost the game. Came back to N.Y. Had dinner, went... April 6: ...Went out to Ebbets Field to practice. Came back, had dinner, went to Winter Garden with FRITZ MAISEL. Came home, had something to eat... April 19: Pitched against Newark (an exhibition game). Newark lost 4-2. Allowed 6 singles, passed 3. Several errors cost us game. Bed early. April 21: ...Practice all morning, beat out Washington in Ninth 3-2. Played center field for 1/2 an inning. Movies and bed early. Good

Hofmann & Comp., 1914 - 1919. 32,5 x 25 cm, rote Original-Halbleinenbände mit goldgeprägten Deckeltiteln und dem Kladderadatsch-Titelkopf (1914 und 1915) und rote Halbleinenbände (1917 - 1919) Ein halber und vier vollständige Jahrgänge mit allen Beilagen. \"Kladderadatsch war eine deutschsprachige politisch-satirische, wöchentlich erscheinende Zeitschrift, die von 1848 bis 1944 erschien. Der Name der Zeitschrift ist hergeleitet vom lautmalerischen Berliner Ausdruck Kladderadatsch, der etwa bedeutet „etwas fällt herunter und bricht mit Krach in Scherben“. Der Zeitschriftentitel machte den Ausdruck so populär, dass er zum politischen Schlagwort wurde, das – ironisch gebraucht – vor allem von August Bebel den Zusammenbruch der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft charakterisierte.\" (Wikipedia) \"1909 hatte Paul Warnke (1866 - 1933), ein erklärter Patriot, die Schriftleitung übernommen, damit war der weitere Weg des Kladderadatsch für Jahrzehnte vorgezeichnet. Mit fliegenden Fahnen eilt er im August 1914 in die \'heilige Schlacht\' gegen den \'Erbfeind\', den \'haßerfüllten Franzosen\'. . . Eine wüste Verunglimpfung der Feinde - der Politker sowohl wie der Soldaten - geht Hand in Hand mit überschwenglischen Huldigungen an die deutschen Truppen und Heerführer. Vor allem Hindenburg war es, zu dem der Kladderadatsch aufblickte. Als im November 1918 die Revolution ausbrach, da war der Kladderadatsch einer der ersten, der nach Rache schrie, (vgl. das Titelgedicht vom 17. November 1918). Er häkelte eifrig mit an dem Gespinst der Dolchstoßlegende und nahm der jungen Republik nichts so sehr übel, als daß sie den Krieg verloren hatte und sich nun um Einhaltung der Verträge und um eine Neuformung der Gesellschaft bemühte, statt sofort wieder mit den noch übriggebliebenen Wafen zu klirren. Der Kladderadatsch focht so heftig gegen den Völkerbund und gegen Frankreich, daß er schließlich im französisch besetzten Rheinland verboten wurde.\" (Liesel Hartenstein.

        LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF "BILLY" DIXON OF ADOBE WALLS, TEXAS PANHANDLE.

      [Co-Operative Printing Co., 1914]., 1914. First edition. Signed and dated on front fly leaf by Olive K. Dixon, wife of Billy Dixon. 8vo. Green cloth, titles stamped in gold gilt on the front cover and spine, 320 pp., illustrations from old photographs. "A narrative in which is described many things relating to the early Southwest, with an account of the fight between Indians and buffalo hunters at Adobe Walls, and the desperate engagement at Buffalo Wallow, for which Congress voted the Medal of Honor to the survivors." Born in West Virginia in 1850, Billy Dixon lived in Missouri from 1862 until 1865, when he took a job with a freight contractor as a bull-whacker and mule-skinner in Kansas. He freighted throughout western Kansas and Nebraska, and eastern Colorado for 4 years. In 1869, Dixon joined a hunting and trapping venture in the Saline River Valley, northwest of Fort Hays. Billy's excellent marksmanship soon led him to the highly profitable trade in buffalo hides. He invested in a supply store and did quite well until his partner "sold out" and took off with the proceeds during Billy's absence. He hunted the Texas Panhandle in the early and mid 1870's. Billy Dixon was one of 28 men and 1 woman who fought off a large party of hostile Indians in the second Battle of Adobe Walls. He scouted for Gen. Nelson Miles in 1874, when carrying dispatches to Fort Supply, Dixon and 5 others were attacked by Indians. Billy Dixon received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his part in the action. Still scouting for General Miles, Dixon was present at the rescue of the Germaine sisters from the Cheyenne in November, 1874. Dixon saved the Nolan Expedition in 1877 by leading them to water while in pursuit of hostile Comanches on the Staked Plains. Dixon returned to civilian life in 1883. He worked on the Turkey Trot Ranch before homesteading at the site of the original Adobe Walls. Eventually he homesteaded again in Cimarron County, Oklahoma, where he died in 1913. An excellent biography. Minor rub at foot of spine and corner, else a near fine, bright, tight, square copy. An unusually bright, attractive copy and the nicest copy we have handled. Rare,

Taft was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1914. Additionally, he lectured on Legal Ethics at Boston University from 1918 to 1921. When World War I did break out in Europe in 1914, Taft founded the League to Enforce Peace, which was outlined in his book The United States and Peace.

        The Wise Virgins

      Edward Arnold, London 1914 - This is a Very Good - Copy of this book in Publisher's original brown cloth with black title lettering to spine and upper cover and with vertical white lines running down the uppercover and also to spine of the book .The outer boards are showing some blotched stained marks to thwe upper cover and top edge of the lower cover.This is a very very scarce title indeed and is Leonard Woolf’s second novel which was published two years after the Author’s marriage to Virginia Stephen and begun to be written during their honeymoon. The autobiographical elements of the book are well known and it's acknowledged that Camilla Lawrence in The Wise Virgins is really a portrait of the Author's wife, Virginia Woolf.The book looks back to the early courting days after Leonard's return from Ceylon.This particular copy bears the name of Lytton Strachey (Bloomsbury Group) to the front endpaper.This title was acquired from a very impressive private collection of 20th Century Literature and Fiction with strict adherence paid in obtaining rare highlights in exellent condition.It appears to have been sent to Sotheby's Auction by James Strachey in 1965. The book has a firm binding with NO hinge weakness and there is NO leaning or rolling to spine.There is some spotting to the top edge of the book and also to the fore-edge of the book but nothing untoward for a title of this age.Great copy for the collector of this Very Rare title in original cloth.It's Woolf's second and last novel and almost unobtainable as it's circulation was restricted owing to his family's acute displeasure.The Bloomsbury Circle of which Stachey and Leonard Woolf were both invloved.They were very close and corresponded almost daily.Their early correspondence was dripping with their sexual drives and in particular with Strachey's boasting of his homosexual activities.They discussed issues of philiosophy,art and politics at length.Scarce title with this wonderful Lytton Strachey Association present and a genuine unique item.8vo 336pp plus 8 pages of ads at the rear of the book.First Edition 1st Impression Size: 8vo - over 5¾" - 7¾" Tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Berlin: Bruno Cassirer 1914. 4 Blatt, 159 Seiten. Illustriertes Original-Halbpergament, Groß-Oktav. (Deckel gering verfärbt oder ausgeblichen, der Holzschnitt nach Cezanne etwas braunflekcig, die beiden Renoirblätter sauber, die Hemdchen mit kleinen Fehlsteleln, insgesamt wohlerhaltenes, schönes Exemplar) Erstmals 1909 mit anderer Bebilderung erschienen. Die zwei Renoirs jeweils im Werkverzeichnis von Delteil nachgewiesen (als Nummern 22 \"Kinderbild\" resp. 6 \"Zwei Mädchen\"). Das Exemplar stammt laut Auskunft des Vorbesitzers - aus dem Exemplar selber ergibt sich das nicht - aus dem Besitz des schwedischen Künstlers Olaf Casimir Agren (1874-1962). Zwischen 1980 und 1938 lebte er in Frankreich und Italien, besuchte zwischenzeitlich auch Deutschland und hat wohl bei dieser Gelegenheit das Buch erworben. Nach 1938 lebte er bis zu seinem Tod in Flivik / Südschweden.

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

      Manuscrit. Bon. 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..

Aus dem letzten Absatz: \" Die Chronik der R.D.Warburg`schen Familie, die wir hiermit beenden, soll in keiner Weise erschöpfend sein; der Verfasser hat nicht den Hauptwert darauf gelegt, ein umfangreiches Bild der geschäftlichen Tätigkeit und eine umfassende Schilderung ihres Privatlebens zu geben; es ist ihm vielmehr darauf angekommen, nur das zu schildern, was er als authentisch verantworten konnte. Der Chronist ist bei seiner Schrift von dem Gedanken ausgegangen, das Werk, welches alle zweige der Warburgschen Familie umfaßt, sei nicht für die breite Öffentlichkeit bestimmt, sondern habe lediglich den Zweck, zu einer Zeit, wo dies noch möglich scheint, die Traditionen in der Familie zu erhalten....\" Einband etwas fleckig und berieben, Rücken unten beschädigt ( angeplatzt ) und geklebt.
