        Liubov k trem apel'sinam. Zhurnal Doktora Dapertutto. Complete set.

      S.-Peterburg: Meierkhol'd-1916. 1914 - Wrappers, 12mo. and larger. (Vishnevskii 353) complete set of "Love for Three Oranges", the rare important publication by Meierkhol'd. The title is taken from the exotic commedia dell'arte play "L'amore delle tre melarance" by Count Carlo Gozzi, the ardent defender of the traditional commedia dell'arte form. Meierkhol'd translated and adapted Gozzi's play and published it in the first issue. Doctor Dapertutto (a character from E.T.A. Hoffmann) was the name (suggested by the poet Mikhail Kuzmin) Meierkhol'd used as an alter ego to showcase his more eccentric pursuits in smaller theaters. In fact, Telyakovsky, the Director of Imperial Theatres, had asked Meierkhol'd to adopt a pseudonym for his private theatrical activities as they otherwise constituted a breach of contract. Meierkhol'd gave a copy of the first issue of the journal to the composer Prokofiev in 1918 and encouraged him to write an opera based on it. Prokofiev wrote a score in nine months for the Chicago Opera where it did finally premiere in 1921. Complete set of the journal - seven numbers for 1914, seven for 1915 and three numbers for 1916. Covers for 1914 were designed by Iurii Bondi. Covers for 1915 and 1916 by A. Ia. Golovin.

        (SOUVENIR) OFFERT AUX VISITEURS DE L' EXPOSITION NATIONALE-BERNE 1914, Par L'Association Suisse Des Fabricants De Papier Et Pates à Papier.

      Basel 1914. Basel, 1914. Basel 1914. Four striking color printed banners from the special paper exhibition of the Association of Swiss Paper Manufacturers at the Berne 1914 Swiss national exposition. These handsome souvenir banners printed by Graph Anstalt Wassermann were offered to those who attended the national exhibition and, presumably, saw the collective exposition of the paper manufacturers . These included Papeteries de Marly (S.A.); Cartiere di Locarno; Walty & Cie., Papier-Fabrik; Stocklin & Cie., Papier-u. Karton-fabrik, and more. Each of the four banners measures 64 x 11.3 cm. and is printed on both front and back. The back contains the names of exhibitors; the front is printed in vibrant colors - reds, greens, yellows, and black - showing persons engaged in a great variety of tasks and amusements involving paper production or use throughout the centuries. Among the many contemporary uses creatively illustrated in the first set of banners are: drawing papers; playing cards; posters; kites; paper flowers; confetti; books; wallpaper; stationery; and paper toys. In the two banners dedicated to historic paper-making are illustrations of a crusader showing a scroll to a monk; paper-making and the making of watermarks; rag pickers; Egyptian papyrus; Chinese paper (mulberry straw) and much more. The exuberant illustrations focus on people rather than technical details and are printed in solid colours that make a rich display. We were not able to find any reference to this very ephemeral item. Four rolled banners measuring 64 x 11.3 cm when extended; in two heavy paper tubes. The banners have been rolled and provided with carrying tubes; they are in excellent condition with bright, fresh color; just a faint trace of foxing in a small portion of margin of one banner, some scattered foxing across about 8 cm of the end of the second band of the contemporary illustrations.

        Documents scientifiques de la Mission Tilho 1906-1909.

      Imprimerie Nationale, Paris, 1910-1914. - EA. 3 Bände plus Karten-Mappe. Mit über 140 teils gefalteten Tafeln (überwiegend Fotografien auf Kunstdruck-Papier oder Karten auf starkem Karton),zahlreiche weitere, teils gef. Karten und Panoramen (ebenfalls teils mehrf. gef.), zahlr. Diagrammen und Abb. im Text sowie 7 mehrfach gefalteten losen Karten im Schuber. So vollständig. Original-Broschur-Bände, unbeschnitten, teils unaufgeschnitten. LX, 412 S. / VIII, 631 S. / VII, 484 S. 4°. Alle drei Bände in sehr gutem Zustand; Einbände teils angeschmutzt, lichtrandig, gedunkelt, mit kleinen Einrissen; Bd. II mit Feuchtigkeitsrändern auf den letzten 3 Seiten. Die mehrf. gef. Farb- Karten, alle 7 sehr groß, ca. 90x65cm, machen den Eindruck, nie geöffnet worden zu sein. Sie sind teils leicht stockfleckig an den Rändern, eine Karte ,Nr. 7, mit kleinem Wasserflecken. Die Mission Tilho, auch Niger-Tschad-Expedition genannt, erbrachte auf zahlreichen Gebieten eine ungeheuere Menge von wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen und Daten, u.a. ist ein anthropologisch/ethnologischer Teil in Bd. III enthalten. Das komplette Werk wird äußerst selten angeboten, die Kartenmappe (Karte Nr. 8, auf dem Schuber angegeben, ist nie erschienen!) ist sehr selten, der erst später erschienene Bd.III fast nicht zu bekommen. Die fast unüberschaubare Menge des angebotenen Materials des fast 8 kg schweren Werkes macht eine exakte Kollationierung zu einem zeitraubenden Unterfangen, zumal viele der einzelnen Teile und Unterartikel eine durchaus eigene Zählung von Tafeln und Karten haben. Davor scheinen selbst die Herausgeber kapituliert zu haben, wie man unschwer den Verlagsangaben auf der Rückseite von Bd. III entnehmen kann.

        Les caves du Vatican

      - 73 pp., (2), puis numérotées Paris, Gallimard, nrf, Janvier 1914 - Avril 1914, in-8, 73 pp, (2), puis numérotées de 220 à 304 pp, (1), puis de 438 à 485 pp, (1), de 645 à 704 pp, 12 pp. de couvertures, 20 pp. de catalogue, bradel percaline crème, dos lisse avec pièce de titre rouge, Édition pré-originale de cette "sotie" de Gide, publiée en 1914 dans la Nouvelle Revue Française, dont Gide était le directeur. Récit délibérément décousu et refusant la narration linéaire classique du genre romanesque, "Les Caves du Vatican" aborde notamment le thème de l'acte gratuit, thème emprunté à Nietzsche et à Dostoïevski, duquel découlent les concepts de la liberté et du libre arbitre. A travers les remords de son personnage, torturé par la conscience de son crime (Lafcadio tue sans raison apparente un homme en le jetant d'un train), Gide aborde ainsi, dans le contexte de la première guerre mondiale, la folie de certains engagements intellectuels et démontre la gravité des conséquences qui en découlent. Profondément choqué par la lecture de l'ouvrage, Claudel reprocha dans une lettre à Gide certains passages sur l'homosexualité et surtout l'exaltation de ce crime gratuit, qui s'oppose aux principes catholiques de Claudel. En début de volume, une page manuscrite indique que les pages de l'ouvrage sont extraites des numéros 61 à 64 de la Nouvelle Revue Française. Sont reliés en fin de volume les couvertures des trois derniers numéros, 24 pages de catalogue de l'éditeur et divers bulletins de souscription, dont celui de l'ouvrage. Bel ouvrage, intérieur très frais. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photo Album - WWI - Ancient Ruins of Greece & Tunisia - Enormous Scrapbook Album with Journal Entries

      Greece & Tunisia, 1914. England, Greece, Tunisia, 1914-1920. Scrapbook album of a young Scottish woman who volunteered with the Red Cross in the First World War, its two principal points of interest being the war, and a subsequent journey to important archaeological sites of Greek, Roman and Carthaginian origin. Contains approximately 180 original gelatin silver print photographs from her travels abroad, 6 postcards, 6 manuscript letters written immediately at war's end, sentimental wartime documents, programmes, certificates, and some personalia. Items are mounted onto heavy cardstock leaves. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 4 x 6 cm, and the largest 21,5 x 27,5 cm, many captioned in manuscript. Large leather bound folio volume measuring approximately 19 x 38 x 7 cm. Front board turn in is stamped in gilt "Asprey, No. 166 New Bond Street W." Foxing to margins, minor age-toning to some images, otherwise in Very Good Condition. Photographs of antiquities from ancient civilizations which once dominated the regions now known Greece and Tunisia, intermixed with twentieth century war memories of an empathetic young Scottish nurse, this album presents, albeit parenthetically, a striking visual reminder of man's interminable cycle between strife and harmony, to conquer for power and trade for survival. Gladys Margaret Mackinnon is from the small village of Clachan in North Kintyre. After attending Cheltenham Ladies College, Gladys received a certificate for nursing from the St. John Ambulance Association in London, March 1910. She joined the British Red Cross Society in London after passing her examination on 31 August 1914. During the Great War she volunteered in England. Gladys Margaret Mackinnon who died in 1973 at 84 yrs of age is buried in the Clachan Cemetery in Kintyre Peninsula, Argyll, Scotland. She may be a relative (possibly a niece) of Scottish ship-owner Sir William Mackinnon (1823-1893), 1st Baronet of Loup and Balinakill, also resident of Clachan, who built up substantial commercial interests in India and East Africa, and who established the British-India Steam Navigation Company, as well as the Imperial British East Africa Company. He was Colonial Head of British East Africa, from 1887-1889 and was well acquainted with Henry Morton Stanley, being most instrumental in promoting and funding 1886 Emin Pasha Relief Expedition. He married Janet Colquhoun on 12 May 1856. They had no children. Further research is warranted to ascertain a family connection. Miss Mackinnon's tour of Greece yields numerous photographs, including some panoramic views, and snapshots of ancient sites. Olympia, Sparta, Mycenae, Tiryns, Delos, and Delphi where she entered the shrine of Apollo, are all featured here. Evidently she also made a horse-back journey to the Bronze Age archaeological site of Knossos. A distant view of the island castle of Bourtzi in the harbour of Nafplio, which was built as a fortress in the fifteenth century and converted into a residence for executioners in the late nineteenth century. In Athens she captures lovely snapshot images of ancient sites such as the Parthenon, the Acropolis, the Arch of Hadrian, the Temple of Zeus, the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates and so forth. The journey also included visits to Ajaccio in Corsica and to Tunisia. In Carthage and Kairouan [Kirwan] the people and their custom captivated her attention, as well as the Punic and Roman archaeological sites. From Carthage, which became the greatest of the ancient Phoenician trading cities, photographs show Baths of Antoninus in Carthage, the El DJem Amphitheatre, and more. Additional photographs continue to illustrate ruins and highlights from touring other continental European countries. Pertaining to the Great War, Miss Mackinnon includes two photographs of the destruction caused by Zeppelin bombs at Harwich in 1915. Placed alongside these is a manuscript letter from the administration of Middlesex Hospital thanking her for her service. [Harwich was the victim of several Zeppelin raids in 1915.] Her Red Cross and St John Ambulance certificates are also present. She further preserves a few letters received from friends in November 1918, all of which reflect on tragedy and victory, marking the end of the war. Some excerpts: "Peace enters in at last! Thanks be to God who giveth us the victory... hundreds captured from the Germans..." "I am now able to realize that we have peace once more or at least the killing has ceased!" "... and then came the wonderful armistice. " "The glorious news has come at last. Victorious peace... great joy tempered with sorrow." . Very Good.

        SEN SHOKU TAIKAN: GREAT COLLECTION OF PATTERNS

      Kyoto 1914, Unsodo. Stiff pictorial wrs., accordion folded,4. vol. set, very clean, title slips, 146 woodcut color plates,. 156 [pages], no stain, no worming, very clean copy, in grass. folding Chitsu case ivory pegs, 18 x 25 cm. FIRST & EDITION. This is a stunning design work. Often called a "designer's dream or wish book." The work is replete with the designs and patterns found on Kimono, Haori [jackets], a wide variety of lacquerer ware, textiles, craftsmen's articles such as furniture, sword and other martial arts items, umbrellas, Noren [a kind of hanging curtain], Mon [heraldry items found on art objects of a wide variety], objects d'arte, ceramics, porcelains, handmade Washi paper and so many others. *** THE COVERS: The covers are polychrome [i.e. color] woodblock printed in four colors, including a very rare silver finish pattern. This silver was rare because of the technique involving the use of crushed clam shells which had a silver lining, the same kind of material found on pearls. The shell lining was crushed, ground smooth, and then used with gesso to create an ink that was used on woodblocks to print the design. Stunning sheen and light reflecting qualities. The folding Chitsu case has had some hinge repair some time ago with very natural matching Washi fiber paper, which reinfoces teh hinge. * THE SET: The set is complete in four matching volumes, each bound with the same colorful front covers, the backs are also the same, cream color matching the upper left color on the front. *** BINDING FORMAT: The books are bound in a traditional accordion folding format, with spines loose a issued. The book can also be displayed in a linear format with the left end of each joined page standing up showing two illustrated pages in each double folded leaf. A lovely effect. The book can also be laid flat to show a double-page illustration. As usual the book opens right to left. Contained in the original grass-covered Chitsu or folding case with ivory clips. The art of the traditional Japanese book ! *** SIZE: Each volume is 18 x 25 cm. and about 1.5 cm. thick. *** THE ILLUSTRATIONS: The stunning polychrome woodcuts represent a good number of colors for which a different wood block was cut then printed, some of the prints have 6-8 or even more colors per illustration. There are a good number of double-page single large illustrations, other pages have 3-4 individual illustrations per double page. The subject of the illustrations are traditional designs, firefly, flowers, geometric designs, chrysanthemum, butterfly, phoenix, Buddhist themes, crane, birds, wisteria, fans, Momiji [Japanese maple], peony, rabbit, cherry, dragon, morning glories, bamboo, dahlia &c. *** CONDITION: The work has a trivial amount of wear on the cover outer edges and with a very minor amount of rubbing. The contents are exceptionally bright, clean and flawless. The book is crisp, appears as if it was barely opened and viewed. There are no thumb or other marks whatsoever. *** A SUPERB ADDITION TO ANY ART AND DESIGN LIBRARY ! * Color scans can be sent by email.

SHAKESPEARE, [William]. Shakespeare?'s Comedy of A Midsummer-Night?'s Dream. With Illustrations by W. Heath Robinson. London: Constable & Co., 1914. Edition DeLuxe. 1/250 copies signed by W. Heath Robinson (this copy being #143). Large quarto (11 5/8 x 8 7/8 inches; 295 x 225 mm.). xii, [iv], 185, [2], [1, printer?'s imprint] pp. Twelve mounted color plates, each with a titled tissue-guard. Forty-seven full-page (including title) and nineteen smaller black and white drawings in the text (the ?"List of Illustrations?" lists thirty-two full-page black and white drawings).Handsomely rebound ca. 1970 in full dark green calf, covers ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, marbled end-papers, top edge rough trimmed, others uncut. A very nice example of this very scarce Heath Robinson signed limited edition."The streams of fairies and goblins floating across the woodland scenes in Heath Robinson's illustrations to A Midsummer Night's Dream are very much like Dicky Doyle's little figures on the cover of Punch, yet these illustrations are among the most personal and most successful that Heath Robinson ever drew." (Lewis)."There are several very pretty coloured plates, including one of a tree-lined river bank, with Heath Robinson's inevitable foxgloves in the foreground, a Greek temple across the river and the reclining figures of Hermia and Helena 'Emptying our bosoms of their counsel sweet', but the black-and-white drawings are the illustrations that add such distinction to this edition of A Midsummer Night's Dream, of which he was so justly proud." (Lewis)."At the height of his powers as an illustrator... this book was to be his finest achievement. In it he consolidated all that he had learnt during the past eighteen years... Heath Robinson considered [the] book to be his greatest achievement, and when it was published in October 1914 a reviewer [in the Times Literary Supplement, Dec. 10, 1914] described it as: 'The most complete and beautiful specimen before us of an illustrated book as a single work of art'" (W. Heath Robinson The Inventive Comic Genius of Our Age, p. 19).Geoffrey Beare, The Illustrations of W. Heath Robinson, p. 127John Lewis, Heath Robinson, p. 216Langston Day, The Life and Art of W.

        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

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,
