      Berlin: A. 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. In "Kladderadatsch" Faksimile-Querschnitt S. 15)

A handsome production and the single most important record of the achievements of the firm of McKim, Mead and White, which played a major role in the development of the classical revival in American architecture. Their work applied the principles of Beaux-Arts architecture, the adoption of the classical Greek and Roman stylistic vocabulary as filtered through the Parisian Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and the related City Beautiful movement after 1893 or so. Its vision was to clean up the visual confusion of American cities and imbue them with a sense of order and formality during America's Gilded Age.

      1914. The Book of Genesis Beautifully Illustrated by Frederick Cayley RobinsonLimited to 500 Numbered CopiesROBINSON, F. Cayley, illustrator. [RICCARDI PRESS]. The Book of Genesis. Now printed in the authorised version and illustrated after drawings by F. Cayley Robinson. London: Philip Lee Warner publisher to the Medici Society, 1914. Limited to 500 numbered copies (this being no. 473). Quarto (10 5/16 x 7 3/4 in; 262 x 197 mm). xv, [1], 88, [1, colophon], [1, blank], [1, printer's slug], [1, blank] pp. on Riccardi hand-made paper. Ten mounted color plates, including frontispiece, with captioned tissue guards. Engraved title-page printed in blue and black with central ornament. Bound ca. 1925 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in three quarter russet morocco over green cloth boards ruled in blind, spine with five raised bands ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, top edge rough gilt, others uncut. 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.

Breese, Bellevue Hospital, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Colony Club, Memorial Gateways, Princeton University, Residence of Jone Innes Kane, Payne Whitney Residence, University Cottage Club, Princeton, Trinity Church, National City Bank. First Edition. A handsome production and the single most important record of the achievements of the firm of McKim, Mead and White, which played a major role in the development of the classical revival in American architecture. Their work applied the principles of Beaux-Arts architecture, the adoption of the classical Greek and Roman stylistic vocabulary as filtered through the Parisian Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and the related City Beautiful movement after 1893 or so. Its vision was to clean up the visual confusion of American cities and imbue them with a sense of order and formality during America's Gilded Age.

        George Patton writes on hunting at Fort Riley; offered with the President's Cup awarded to the 1923 War Department Polo Team and an equestrian trophy issued to his wife Beatrice

      Fort Riley, Kansas, October 13, 1914. 8" x 10.5". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""George S Patton Jr.,"" 2 pages, 8"" x 10.5"" on Mounted Service School letterhead, Fort Riley, Kansas, October 13, 1914 to his mother. With the original transmittal envelope addressed to ""Mrs. Geo. S. Patton San Gabriel California."" Expected mailing folds, else very fine condition. Offered together with a sterling silver pitcher, 7"" x 8.5"" awarding the 1923 ""PRESIDENT'S CUP"" for polo to the War Department team and a sterling sliver trophy, 9.75"" x 4.75"", mounted on a 4.25"" diameter wooden base, an award given to Beatrice Patton for ""HAWAII'S SIXTH TERR[ITORIAL]. FAIR"" of 1927. Both pieces bear some minor blemishes and minor wear. Patton's letter reads in full: ""Dear Mama: For the last two days it has been very cold almost winter. Yesterday we had a drag-hunt and there was one bad ditch in it so before starting I warned people that I would show them the ditch. I did I fell into it and both Wing and I lit on our heads but it did not hurt us a bit and we had a fine hunt. I just sent for three new fox hounds for the pack we simply had to have them and they did not cost very much. I took a rest Sunday by going on a coyote hunt with Dr. Hewett I rode over fifty miles in eleven hours and did not see a coyote but a bunch of young mules tried to kill the hounds and we had a lot of trouble keeping them off. Mrs Ayer had been very sick so B[eatrice] has not come yet I expect her about Sunday. Every thing is about as usual love to all Your devoted son George S Patton Jr."" The letter is accompanied by two trophies. The first is a pitcher awarding the ""PRESIDENT'S CUP"" to the War Department Polo team for their June 1923 victory at the Philadelphia Country Club. Patton was an avid polo player and had captained the highly successful 1922 Army squad before heading off for Kansas the following year, where he underwent further training, including the Field Officer's Course at Fort Riley and then the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, graduating 25th in his class in 1924. His success on the polo grounds won him the admiration of his former teammates?"so much so that they apparently presented their 1923 trophy to him as a memento. Patton, like many young cavalry officers, gravitated towards polo in some part due to the sport's inherent danger as well as its role in improving riding skills. In 1931, a cavalry officer was killed in a match at the Meadow Brook Club and over 70 percent of officers who played responded to a survey that they had been injured during play. Patton suffered numerous injuries, including a serious fall in 1936 that resulted in a serious head injury. Reflecting on the season of 1922, Patton wrote in the Cavalry Journal, ?The virtue of polo as a military accomplishment rests on the following: it makes a man think fast while he is excited; it reduces his natural respect for his own safety - that is, makes him bold; it ... teach[es] restraint under exciting circumstances ... nearest to mounted combat; makes riding worthwhile; keeps a man hard ... [and] teach[es] better horse management.? (George S. Patton, Jr., ?Report of Operations of the Army Polo Team of 1922,? Cavalry Journal, April 1923, p.233.) The second trophy dates from Patton's posting in Hawaii from 1925 to 1927. His wife, Beatrice, shared her husband's passion for equestrian sports and this award was given to her during the 1927 annual Territorial Fair for ""Best Saddle Horse Ladies won by BULL RUN RIDDEN BY BEATRICE AYER PATTON.""

        Le Vrai & Le Faux Chic

      Paris: Succes, 1914. Hardbound. Condition varies, sold as a collection of plates. The front cover (with the gold scissors) is dampstained and soiled. The first three sheets of mounted ads show moisture offsetting to some degree. The next 35 pages or so (17 sheets) are virtually free of defects other than very slight waviness. Following these sheets the progression of moisture damage is rapid through the final four sheets of text and the following sheets of ads. Thus, sold as a collection of rare pochoir plates.. Large folio mounted in buckram with pochoir plates, tipped-in advertisements and additional illustrations throughout. Approx. 66 pp., including 22 pp. narrative text. See condition notes. No statement of limitation is noted, as has been described by other booksellers. Stunning and rare, a real shame that is is not in better condition. Please contact me for more information. Created by the French artist/caricaturist, George Goursat (1863-1934). His work, both written and illustrated, was full of humor, inspired by his observations of European high society.
