        A VOYAGE AROUND THE WORLD MADE BY JOEL ROOT 1802 - 1806 [cover title]

      [N.p., 1914. Small folio. Original limp blue morocco, gilt. Inscribed on front fly leaf. Light wear to extremities, slightly heavier to corners and spine ends. Internally clean. Very good. A very interesting narrative of a voyage made by Joel Root (b. 1770), a native of Southington, Connecticut, as supercargo and director of a voyage on the ship Huron which left New Haven in April 1802 in search of hair seals for the American market and fur seals to be sold in China. Clearing Cape Horn in January 1803, they arrived at the Mocha, Lobos, and St. Mary's islands off the coast of South America, where they found a large population of seals. Root and a small party were blown off course in a whale boat and temporarily separated from the Huron. After being briefly imprisoned at Concepcion, they rejoined the Huron on Feb. 25. The captain headed for the Lobos Islands off the coast of Peru, while Root chose to stay behind on St. Mary's Island off the coast of Chile. With part of the crew he was able to take ten thousand seal skins. On the return of the Huron, they set sail on Sept. 25 for the island of Massafuero, one of the Juan Ferdinand Islands, also off the coast of Chile. There Root proposed to take fur seals for the China market, while the Huron returned to the U.S. with its cargo of nineteen thousand skins. "Mr. Root was surprized to find on the island more men than seals....In all there were about 150 men." These were lone sealers left behind by various ships. Root himself took about 4,000 skins, and purchased another 5,000 or more from the loners who had been threatened by the Viceroy of Peru with imprisonment if they failed to leave the island. In fire sale fashion, Root bought the skins for twenty-five to fifty cents each, and upon reaching Canton he sold them for ninety-five cents a piece and invested the proceeds in China goods which he then sold in Hamburg. From Hamburg he sailed for St. Petersburg, where he bought a cargo of mixed goods to sell on his return to the United States. He reached New Haven again on Oct. 30, 1806. Four other manuscript versions of Root's narrative have been located, all in some way different. There is also a published account of the voyages in the PAPERS OF THE NEW HAVEN HISTORICAL SOCIETY (Vol. 5, 1894) which differs markedly from this. That version is told in the first person while this is in the third; it is generally more detailed but omits two substantial sections included here which tell of an encounter with pirates at Sumatra and an incident with a disgruntled sealer who almost murdered Root. The present narrative was written by Dr. Emile B. Gardette, Root's grandson-in-law, based on accounts related to him by Root in 1836. According to the text, Gardette wrote this in 1841. As suggested by some of the wording, he may also have used an account which was written in 1840 by Root himself for his family. The original manuscript of that account is not located, but the New-York Historical Society lists a "transcript of memoir originally written in 1840 and subsequently copied by [Root's] daughter in 1847." East Carolina University's Joyner Library also holds a copy of the 1840 memoir, photocopied from an unspecified source and previously owned by Jake D. Moore of Kingston, North Carolina. The University of Montana likewise holds a copy with more or less the same text as the present copy, though theirs is fifty-six pages rather than seventy- three, and is described as a "photocopy of a typescript" with added photographs and genealogy. As for Gardette's manuscript (the original source for our typescript and the version at the University of Montana), the Connecticut Historical Society lists what it calls a "biography" written circa 1841, a "handwritten narrative" that could be Gardette's account. For remarks on Root's successful enterprise, see Busch's WAR AGAINST SEALS: A HISTORY OF THE NORTH AMERICAN SEAL FISHERY (McGill, 1985).

        The Wonderground Map of London Town "The Heart of Britain's Empire Here is Spread Out For Your View it Shows You Many Stations & Bus Routes Not a Few You Have Not the Time to Admire It All? Why Not Take A Map Home to Pin on Your Wall!"

      London.: The Westminster Press.. Copyright 1914. [ 1928].. Color pictorial / pictographic map sheet 29 1/4 x 36 1/2 inches, originally folded as issued, now professionally restored and mounted on linen. Tiny chips to edges and corners now infilled, light wear and separations to folds all professionally restored and virtually invisible, the poster appearing fresh and clean. Originally published in 1914 as an advertising poster for the London Underground, this design proved so popular that it was subsequently in several different editions. It has been suggested (on the blog of Tim Bryars) that this particular edition with an image of a greyhound and "On to Wembley" at the upper left of the map was issued at the time of the introduction of greyhound racing at Wembley in December 1927 "with a dog named Spin winning the very first race." The greyhound's jacket in the print carries the letter 'S' endorsing this suggestion. An outstanding and innovative graphic - an explosion of color and humor - the poster sparked a revival in interest in decorative cartography around the world which continues today, a century later. .

        Kniga Razskazov o Bitvakh Tekintsev [The Book of Tales about the Battles of the Tekei: Turkmen Historical Poem of the 19th Century]: Published and translated with a Foreword and Notes by A.N. Samoilovich.

      Saint Petersburg: Imperial Academy of Sciences, Academy of Sciences 1914 - First publication of this important 19th century Turkmen poem with interesting references to the Great Game in Central Asia. It includes the original Turkmen text (with separate title page and pagination), its Russian translation, and several commentaries and articles about the poem. Abdu-s-Sattar Kazy was a religious judge in Khiva in the 19th century. In his poem he described the events he witnessed: the settlement of the Turkmen tribes in the Caspian steppes, their struggle with the Persians, the personality of Tekei Khan Nur-Verdi and his enemies etc. The text of the poem shows that Abdu-s-Sattar Kazy was acquainted with the geography of Persia, Persian manners and customs, had knowledge about Russian troops and knew how Englishmen looked (verse 686 "they plucked their beards and moustache like Englishmen"). The poem is supplemented with scientific commentaries and articles about its language, history and contents and several indexes. Published by the Faculty of Eastern Languages of Saint Petersburg University and translated and edited by Alexander Nikolaevich Samoilovich, 1880-1938, a specialist in Turkic history and philology, member of Russian Academy of Sciences and director of the Institute of the Oriental Studies of the Academy. Samoilovich was a victim of Stalin's political repression. In 1937 he was arrested on the false charge of being a Japanese spy and creating a terrorist organisation and in 1938 he was executed by shooting. Bound in later brown gilt tooled half calf with cloth boards and black gilt label. Original printed wrappers bound in. A very good unopened copy.

        Covent Garden receipt for performances by Enrico Caruso signed in full.

      Octavo. Dated [London], May 25, 1914. In black ink on blue paper. With annotations in another hand. "Royal Opera Covent Garden Proprietors: The Grand Opera Syndicate, Ltd. General Manager, Mr. Neil Forsyth" printed at head. Caruso acknowledges that he has received £500 to sing in Madame Butterfly on Wednesday, May 25, 1914. Creased at folds; some fading; two staple holes and two small perforations; remnants of adhesive and minor repair to verso; purple handstamp to central portion. . "The winning quality of the sound, the tender mezza voce (particularly in the early years), and his phrasing, based on a rare mastery of legato and portamento, enabled Caruso to sing the French and Italian lyric repertory as well as lighter operas. In addition, his noble, incisive declamation, his broad, generous phrasing, and his vigor in dramatic outbursts made him a notable interpreter of Verdi as well as of French grand opéra. In this repertory his performances were characterized by the irresistible erotic appeal of his timbre allied to a temperament as warm and vehement as his voice. His numerous recordings, now faithfully remastered on CD, not only made him universally famous, they also did much to encourage the acceptance of recording as a medium for opera." Rodolfo Celletti and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Caruso sang Lieutenant Pinkerton in this performance of Puccini's opera. The 1914 season would be Caruso's last at Covent Garden. World War One erupted shortly after the season concluded, and Caruso did not return after the War's end in 1918.

        Autograph letter signed ("Fz. Marc").

      Sindelsdorf, 18. IV. 1914. - Large 4to. 4 pp. on bifolium. Stamped letterhead, ruled paper. Fine letter to Hugo Ball (1886-1927), who was working then as a dramaturg at the Munich Kammerspiele. Marc refuses to realize a theatre project under their current circumstances: "I would rather wait until we can really create something new, with our own ensemble and with perfect freedom of movement. Otherwise, nothing solid comes to pass. Then we would have to engage Kokoschka, Kandinsky, Klee, and Macke, and as musicians we must get the Schoenberg circle (Schoenberg, Webern, Berg and others) [.]". - Furthermore, Marc mentions the Russian painter Vladimir Georgievitsch Bechteev (1878-1971), a member of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München ("Munich New Artist's Association"), who was friendly with the "Blaue Reiter" ("Blue Rider"). Bechteev was involved in the theatre project discussed by Hugo Ball, which fell apart, as did other plans with members of the "Blue Rider". In 1914, he went back to Russia, and was called up to the army. After WWII, he worked as a set designer and illustrator. Franz Marc. Briefe, Schriften, Aufzeichnungen (Leipzig 1989), p. 95.

They pioneered the 'Systeme Panhard', which consisted of four wheels, a front-mounted engine with rear wheel drive, and a sliding-gear transmission, and was to become the standard layout for automobiles for most of the next century. Arthur Krebs succeeded to Levassor as Panhard-Levassor's General Manager from 1897 to 1916, and turned the Panhard-Levassor Company into one of the largest and profitable manufacturer of automobiles before WWI.

The translation of this British edition differs from the translation used for the first U.S. edition, published in 1911 as part of the fifteen volume WORKS OF JULES VERNE. According to Taves and Michaluk the British translation (by Cranstoun Metcalfe) is a "more faithful translation." The two novels featuring Robur were the basis for Richard Matheson's screenplay for MASTER OF THE WORLD, a 1961 film starring Vincent Price as the aerial anarchist. Taves and Michaluk V054.

        Eine Praehistorische Metropole in Südamerika. Una Metrópoli prehistorica en la América del sud. Band I, tomo I.

      Berlin Dietrich Reimer 1914 - Illustrierter Ganzleineneinband mit Titel in Golddruck auf Deckel und Rücken. Einband und Seiten gut erhalten. Exlibris Immina Schömig. XI, 184 Seiten mit Tabellen und Karten sowie 84 zum Teil gefalteten photographischen Tafeln, 4°. Arthur Posnansky (1873 - 1946) was an important contributor to Bolivian culture history, being not only a pioneer in Bolivian archaeology, but also in Bolivian cinematography, in the development of the national park system, and in the introduction of the first automobile into Bolivia. He was trained as a naval engineer in his native Vienna, a skill which he quickly parlayed into a fortune in Bolivia in the rubber boom, in terms of transporting the latex by river transport. With the loss of Arce to Brazil in 1903, he shifted his focus to other fields. He brought the first gasoline-powered motorboat to Lake Titicaca that year, and while visiting the excavations of the French Crequi-Montfort and Senechal de La Grange Mission, under the direction of George Courty, during trips to the lake, he became very intrigued with the site of Tiwanaku and its place in Bolivian prehistory. Posnansky shortly thereafter began his extensive collection of material artifacts from Tiwanaku, constructing the -"Palacio Tihuanacu" in 1917-1918 to house the stela, ceramics and other materials which he collected. This structure and its collections were subsequently sold to the state, becoming the current Museo Nacional de Arqueologia.

      1914 - 36 volumes in tan half morocco with raised bands, spines ruled in blind and sprinkled edges. (Upsala bokband, C. W. Bergman and Levins bokbinderi). Wrappers preserved. Spines insignificantly faded and with slight variations in colour tone towards the end of the suite. "Nordisk tidskrift för bok- och biblioteksväsen" was founded in 1914 by Isak Collijn who also was its chief editor until 1948 when he was succeeded by Tönnes Kleberg. The main focus of the journal is the bibliography, book and library history and history of printing of the Nordic countries. Present in this suite are all of Collijn own articles in the journal, as well as his obituary from 1949, but also many other significant contributions to Nordic book history. The present copy has belonged to Gustaf Holmgren (1900-81), who was first librarian at Uppsala University Library and head of its manuscript department, among other things. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Faint (almost invisible) ink signature dated 1935 on front paste-down. Some very light foxing to borders of plates, otherwise a fine copy."Nearer to the private press style and better known are the books from Philip Lee Warner at the Riccardi Press and Chatto and Windus's Florence Press. They were not strictly private presses, but very near in heritage and example. Types for both were designed by Herbert Horn.and cut by Edward Prince. Both these typefaces have a clear and rational beauty, more economic in use than the Doves type but based upon the same models. Most of the Riccardi books were printed by Jacobi at the Chiswick Press" (Franklin, The Private Presses, p. 160)."Mr Horne also designed a similar type for the Riccardi Press, who se first book appeared in 1909. The title was assumed by the Medici Society for books 'to be finely printed and issued at reasonable prices through the usual trade channels.' The books were primarily vehicles for coloured illustrations reproduced by the Medici Process, by which a large number of single prints had already been made, but the program was soon extended.Composition and presswork were done at the Chiswick Press under the personal supervision of Mr. Charles T. Jacobi until his retirement in 1922. Texts were chiefly of familiar classics and many were illustrated by contemporary artists" (Ransom, p. 164-65).F[rederick] Cayley Robinson (1862-1927) was an English painter, decorator and illustrator. Born in Brentford, Cayley Robinson was the son of a stockbroker and studied at St John's Wood Academy, the Royal Academy Schools and at the Académie Julian in Paris from 1890 to 1892. He was a member of the Society of Painters in Tempera, the New English Art Club and the Royal Watercolour Society. He regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Painters. In 2010 the National Gallery put on an exhibition in the Sunley Room showing six works by Cayley Robinson The exhibition ran from 14 July to 17 October."The look of Cayley Robinson's paintings, so distinctive, so clear, turns out to be much more than a synthesis of past art. It is precisely what allows subversion to hide in plain sight" (Review of National Gallery exhibition, The Guardian, July 24, 2010).Ransom, p. 395, no. 7.

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

      London: G.W. Bacon & Co. Ltd 1914 - 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.".

      Riccardi Press, London 1914 - mm (). xi, [i] pp., [1] leaf, 249 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 5 of 12 COPIES PRINTED ON VELLUM, 10 of which were for sale (and 525 copies on paper). Publisher's flexible vellum, gilt titling on upper cover and flat spine, green silk ties. Ransom, p. 396; Tomkinson, p. 150. The vellum somewhat darkened and with the appearance of soiling, though both of these apparently a reflection of the original condition of the skin; in all other ways a mint copy. This is the vellum printing of the final volume in the Riccardi Press series of classical works, "Scriptorum Classicorum Bibliotheca Riccardiana," and the only work of non-fiction to be included. (Other volumes in the series were by Horace, Catullus/Tibullus/Propertius, Virgil, and Apuleius). A history covering the first seven years of the Gallic War as well as part of the Civil War, these famous "Commentaries" comprise the only extant work of Julius Caesar (102?-44 B.C.), the general, emperor, orator, poet, and historian whose name is foremost among leaders in the ancient world. Written largely as a justification of Caesar's military policy, they are famous for their simplicity, succinctness, and purity of diction: they are called by J. W. Mackail "the model and despair of later historians." Few would rank Riccardi Press books with Kelmscotts or Ashendenes, but they are of high quality and do have substantial appeal. The vellum used for the text here is certainly fine, its brightness and buttery feel providing uncommonly pleasant visual and tactile experiences. No. 5 of 12 COPIES PRINTED ON VELLUM, 10 of which were for sale (and 525 copies on paper). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Impressionisten. Pissarro, Claude Monet, Sisley, Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Cezanne, Guillaumin. Mit zwei Originalradierungen von Renoir und einem Holzschnitt nach Cezanne. Zweite Auflage.

      Bruno Cassirer, Berlin 1914 - 1914. 4 Blatt, 159 Seiten. Illustriertes Original-Halbpergament. (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. 850 Gramm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
