        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]

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).

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.".

        DE BELLO GALLO COMMENTARIORUM. [COMMENTARIES ON THE GALLIC WARS]

      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.

      - Feder in Schwarz, Bleistift und farbige Kreiden, mit einzelner Federlinie umrandet, auf chamoisfarbenem Zeichenkarton, rechts unten signiert und datiert „Lino Salini 1914". 23,8:18,5 cm, auf Untersatz montiert. Salini, Kind italienischer Eltern, lebte und arbeitete in Frankfurt als Zeichner und Karikaturist. Er wird oft mit Heinrich Zille verglichen, da er die Motive für seine Zeichnungen gern einem spezifischen Milieu entnahm: den Sachsenhäuser Apfelwein-Schenken. Salini erhielt erste Anleitungen im Malen und Zeichnen von Antonio Becker (1846-1915), Gustav Herold (1839-1927) und Alois Penz (1854-1910). Später hat er sich in der Städelschule bei Wilhelm Amandus Beer (1837-1907) und Emil Gies (geb. 1872) weiter ausgebildet.

Hubbard quickly became both popular and famous and collected a community of craftspeople around him in Aurora. Roycroft craftspeople were skilled metal smiths, leather smiths, and bookbinders. Today, items that were produced by the Roycrofters are highly sought after by collectors.

      Wien... Leipzig: Universal=Edition [PN U.E. 5334 5336]. [July 30, 1914]. Folio. In original publisher's heavy textured paper wrappers with titling and text printed in gold. 1f., 1f. (title), [i] ("Vorwort" by Schoenberg), [i] (contents), [ii] (text of the 21 poems), 5-78, [ii] (blank) pp. Engraved. Without printed price. With printed note to lower left corner of first page of music: "Copyright 1914 by Universal-Edition" and printed note to lower right corner of first page of music: "Stich und Druck von Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig." Signed by Schoenberg and with printed number 14 to verso of first blank leaf. Wrappers slightly worn, soiled, and bumped, dampstained at inner edges and spine; spine slightly frayed. Uncut. A very good copy overall. . First Edition, first deluxe issue, limited to 50 signed and numbered copies, this no. 14, printed on fine handmade paper carrying a crown watermark. Rare. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 38-40. Ringer p. 314. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 13-16. The first issue of the edition, shipped on July 30, 1914, was split: 50 copies were printed on high-quality laid paper; the remaining 200 copies were printed on regular paper. The copies on laid paper carry the printed note "Numerierte Vorzugsausgabe auf Bütten" to title. Hitherto unrecorded is the fact that all copies of this issue bear the note "Stich und Druck von Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig" to the lower right corner of the first page of music. The note "Weag" [Waldheim-Eberle A.G.] to p. 78, mentioned in the Schoenberg Complete Edition (Abteilung VI, Reihe B, Band 24, 1, critical report by Reinhold Brinkmann), is found only in the second issue of 1923. Albertine Zehme (1857-1946), an actress born in Vienna and later active in Berlin, is now exclusively remembered as the person who commissioned and first performed Pierrot Lunaire. "Read the preface, looked at the poems. I am enthusiastic. A brilliant idea, entirely in my spirit. I would do it even without a fee." Schoenberg in his diary. The poems are by the Belgian writer Albert Giraud (1860-1929) in a German translation by Erich Otto Hartleben (1864-1905).

        Antarctic Adventure. Scott's Northern Party

      London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1914. Octavo. Original blue cloth with title and pictorial vignettes in silver to spine and front board, top edge gilt, the others uncut. Frontispiece and 97 other plates, three folding maps. Silver oxidised as usual, free endpapers browned, some foxing, prize bookplate for The Thomas Morgan Memorial Essay Prize for 1916 to the front pastedown, but remains a very good copy. First edition, first impression. Priestley served with Shackleton on his 1907-09 expedition, contributing the geological sections to The Heart of the Antarctic, and returning with Scott to Antarctica as a geologist in 1910-13. "He joined the northern party under Victor Campbell. After spending 1911 at Cape Adare the six-man party was landed 200 miles further south for summer fieldwork with provisions for eight weeks. The ship was stopped by pack-ice from returning and the epic story of how the party survived and then sledged 250 miles to the main party early in the following summer is told [in the present work]. They survived the fierce winds by digging a cave in a snowdrift. A line across the middle of the 12 foot by 9 foot floor separated the wardroom from the mess deck of three petty officers. By agreement, nothing said on one side of the line could be 'heard' or answered by those on the other side. Priestley considered this splendid training for dealing with unreasonable, irascible professors in later life without loss of temper. His responsibility for the commissariat in the ice cave in these circumstances shows an early reputation for fairness and reliability" (ODNB). Priestley served in the RE Signals Section during the First World War, and thereafter pursued a career in academic administration in England, Australia and the West Indies. This is a difficult book to find in collectable condition: Spence relates that a large part of the print-run was destroyed in a warehouse fire.

        THE NOVELS AND LETTERS

      Frank S. Holby, New York and Philadelphia 1914 - 222 x 152 mm (8 3/4 x 6"). 12 volumes. Hampshire Edition. Limited to 1,250 numbered and registered copies (our copy not numbered). Quite pleasing recent tan crushed half morocco over marbled boards, raised bands, spines with blind wave rule at top and bottom, spine panels with double gilt rules and central gilt fleuron, red and green labels, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. Letter volumes unopened. With colored illustrations by C. E. and H. M. Brock, and facsimiles of autograph letters. One leaf with two-inch marginal tear (likely from rough opening), otherwise only the most trivial imperfections: A VERY FINE SET, much of it obviously unread, in unworn bindings. In addition to Austen's six novels, this set contains her delightful letters, many of them written to her sister, Cassandra, the dearest companion of her life. Their relationship was sympathetically portrayed in Jane's fiction, where the bonds of sisterhood sustain Eleanor and Marianne Dashwood ("Sense and Sensibility") and Elizabeth and Jane Bennett ("Pride and Prejudice") through all manner of trouble. According to DNB, the two sisters chose spinsterhood because it was preferable to "remain unmarried and together" rather than marry and live apart. One of the most beloved of all English novelists, Jane Austen (1775-1817) was also one of the most influential, and narrative and cinematic adaptations based on or inspired by hers are still making the bestseller lists and filling movie theatres. A clergyman's daughter who mostly lived a quiet life in Hampshire and later in Bath, she nevertheless managed to produce comedies of manners that are still noted for their accurate and acerbic observations on human relations. Austen was admired by critics in her own time, with Scott, Macaulay, and George Lewes being among her enthusiastic supporters. According to Shattock, Scott praised her "exquisite touch which renders ordinary common-place things and characters interesting." Her novels continued to draw admirers even among harsh 20th century critics, with Virginia Woolf declaring her "one of the most consistent satirists in the whole of literature." The illustrations here, as in the previous item, are by the brothers Charles Edmond Brock (1870-1938) and Henry Matthew Brock (1875-1960), prolific book illustrators who specialized in period pieces like the works of Austen, Goldsmith, and Defoe.

      - Feder in Schwarz, Bleistift und etwas Rotstift, mit einzelner Federlinie umrandet, auf chamoisfarbenem Zeichenkarton, rechts unten signiert und datiert „Lino Salini 1914". 21,7:19,6 cm. – Verso mit alten Leimspuren. Salini, Kind italienischer Eltern, lebte und arbeitete in Frankfurt als Zeichner und Karikaturist. Er wird oft mit Heinrich Zille verglichen, da er die Motive für seine Zeichnungen gern einem spezifischen Milieu entnahm: den Sachsenhäuser Apfelwein-Schenken. Salini erhielt erste Anleitungen im Malen und Zeichnen von Antonio Becker (1846-1915), Gustav Herold (1839-1927) und Alois Penz (1854-1910). Später hat er sich in der Städelschule bei Wilhelm Amandus Beer (1837-1907) und Emil Gies (geb. 1872) weiter ausgebildet. Seine Karikaturen und Bilder Frankfurter Originale finden sich noch heute in zahlreichen Wirtschaften. Sein Nachlaß wird im Frankfurter Institut für Stadtgeschichte verwaltet.

"He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled [a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!"

        From The Trenches

      T. Fisher Unwin 1914 - A first softback edition of one of the very first Great War books (published October 1914) and the first of them to report first-hand in English from the trenches of the Western Front at a time when they were freshly dug. The author went to France with a secret hoard of gold sovereigns stashed about his person to file news reports for the London 'Daily News' while the Germans were still at Namur. Once his career as a war correspondent was brought to an abrupt end Young became a founder of the Friends Ambulance Unit. As a paperback that is now more than 100 years old this book is a rare survivor in any condition but especially with both its card wraps and spine panel still attached. No foxing. No ownership inscription. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
