Designed by Lajos Gulácsy. 71, (1) p. Early work by Lajos Kassák (1887-1967) the Hungarian poet, author, painter, theoretician of art and the main figure of the Hungarian Avant-garde. In 1915 he founded the anti-militarist, activist periodical "A tett" (The Deed) in the manner of the German "Die Aktion". When it was banned in 1916 he founded and edited a new Avant-garde, activist magazine "MA" (Today). In it he published works - among others - by Georg Grosz, Kurt Schwitters, El Lissitzky, Hans Richter, Jean Cocteau, Guillaume Apollinaire, Marc Chagall and László Moholy-Nagy. After the fall of the Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919 Kassák fled to Vienna where he continued to publish "MA" until 1925. He was influenced by the Constructivist movement and he formulated the theoretical agenda of Hungarian Constructivism in his journal. In 1926 Kassák went back to Hungary and continued to publish Avant-garde periodicals "Dokumentum" (Document) in 1926 and later "Munka" (Work) between 1927 and 1938. Lajos Gulácsy (1882-1932) was a Hungarian surrealist, expressionist painter. Spine somewhat sunned, overall a good copy. In original illustrated cover, printed in red and black.

        "Vieux Marche Gand". Alter Markt in Gent.

      . Radierung und Mischtechnik, auf chamoisfarbenem Japan, links unten betitelt, rechts unten signiert "JdBruycker". 40:56,5 cm. Breitrandiger sehr guter Abdruck!. De Bruycker studierte an der Akademie in Gent, anschließend in London von 1914-1918. Am Institut superieur des Beaux-Arts in Antwerpen war als Lehrer tätig. Obwohl er auch als Aquarellist und Zeichner arbeitete, hat er seine Hauptbedeutung als Radierer. "Seine Kunst trägt metaphysisches Gepräge. Seine von spukhaften Visionen erfüllten figürlichen Kompositionen üben eine faszinierende Wirkung aus, die stimmungsmäßig an Rabelais und E.A. Poe, H. Bosch und P. Brueghel erinnert. Seine Landschaften und Architekturdarstellungen sind phantastische Träume, die nur ganz von fern noch an das Naturvorbild erinnern. Das Erlebnis des Krieges hat sich ihm zu einem Danse macabre von erschütternder Dämonie verdichtet. Aus seinen Zeichnungen und Aquarellen spricht ein philosophischer Weltbetrachter, zugleich ein erbarmungslos scharfer Menschenbeobachter, dessen Spottlust vor nichts halt macht. Gelegentlich wird man an Kubin erinnert. Seine Linie hat etwas eminent Anregendes, und Form und Inhalt kommen in seinen Radierungen restlos zur Deckung, worin das Geheimnis ihrer Wirkung liegt...." (zit. aus: Thieme/Becker, Bd. I, S. 338).

        Photograph Album Depicting Life at the Agnes Memorial [Tuberculosis] Sanatorium at Denver, Colorado in 1914-1915

      Denver, 1914. Photograph Album. Very Good. A photographic account of Meriwether's stay at the sanatorium. Album has 45 leaves with 67 photographs, most approximately 3"x4". Album and photographs are all in nice shape. A note in the album indicates Meriwether was from Paragould, Arkansas. Agnes Memorial Sanatorium was a non-profit, a medical campus for low-income, early-onset tuberculosis victims who could probably be successfully treated and returned to work. The complex, was built in 1902 on what is now Sixth Avenue in Denver's Lowry neighborhood by Lawrence C. Philips as a charitable endeavor in honor of his mother who had died of TB. Philips began his career as a clerk at Carnegie Steel and worked his way up to become the company's First Vice-President. He subsequently moved to Colorado where he became a noted philanthropist and served as a senator from 1918 to 1930. The photographs are mostly captioned and show the facilities buildings, staff and patients. A number of the photographs show patients engaged recreation (shooting, billiards, Halloween and Christmas parties), resting, dining (in bed), etc. A fascinating pictorial account of quality restorative medical care for "the White Plague."

        Auguries of Innocence.

      Flansham [Sussex]: The Pear Tree Press, Spring 1914 - Small (12mo sized) quarto. Original blue paper-covered card boards, intaglio-printed title label to front cover, pages uncut as intended (each leaf bears a plate impression). Printed on Arches handmade paper. Housed in a custom made white cloth folding case. Wrapper slightly ruffled at the edges, and with a few minors marks to wrappers and a very few internally. An excellent copy of a fragile production. Intalgio printed in blue and silver to a design by James Guthrie, the calligraphy by Lilian Frost, with 16 plates including half-title, title-page, 11 page of text, colophon, and 2 plates of Guthrie's illustrations. First Pear Tree Press edition; number 7 of just 25 copies (the limitation calligraphically inscribed on the leaf following the colophon), a much smaller limitation than the 1/100 more usually met with, and produced using more delicately coloured inks. This limitation is not recorded in the bibliographies. This beautiful production around some of Blake's best-loved lines is generally regarded as Guthrie's first really competent plate book. This copy bears the bookplate of the author (of Quest for Corvo fame), bibliographer (of Yeats), and latter-day celebrant of the fin-de-siècle decadents, A. J. A. Symons (1900-1941), who in 1922 founded the First Editions Club. A nice association to a rare production, printed moreover at a poignant date in the Spring of 1914, with such proleptic lines as: "Nought can deform the human race / Like to the armourer's iron brace; / The soldier armed with sword and gun / Palsied strikes the summer's sun." Or, to use the later words of Philip Larkin, in a poem meditating on that same year: "Never such Innocence again". Bentley 221; Tomkinson 144 [Attributes: First Edition]

        Orville Wright Signed Christmas card, sent two weeks after Pearl Harbor, to a pioneer in aeronautical engineering ? in 1917, Wright had written that after he and his brother ?built and flew the first man-carrying flying machine we thought governments would realize the impossibility of winning by surprise attacks ??

      Christmas Card signed ?Orville Wright? inside, beneath printed greeting, 5.25? x 4.25? (closed). Glue stain on front and on page opposite signature from mounting 4? x 2.25? black and white photograph of Hawthorn Hill, Orville's home from 1914 to his death in 1948, visible through cut out on cover. With original 5.5? by 4.5? envelope addressed by Wright to ?Dr. and Mrs. Porter Adams / 512 Beacon St. / Boston / Mass.? 3¢ ?For Defense? postage stamp affixed, postmarked Dayton, Ohio, December 20, 1941. Two weeks earlier, a surprise attack by Japan at Pearl Harbor led to the United States declaring war on Japan and her allies, Germany and Italy. ?We thought governments would realize the impossibility of winning by surprise attacks,? wrote Orville Wright on June 21, 1917, two months after the United States declared war on Germany, in response to an aircraft program laid out by the Aircraft Production Board. ?When my brother and I built and flew the first man-carrying flying machine, we thought we were introducing into the world an invention which would make further wars practically impossible ... We thought governments would realize the impossibility of winning by surprise attacks, and that no country would enter into war with another of equal size when it knew that it would have to win by simply wearing out the enemy.? A pioneering student of aeronautical engineering at MIT who pursued this interest throughout his life, Dr. Porter Adams (1894-1945) was President of Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont, from 1934-1939. Adams was Chairman of the Executive Committee (1922-1926) and President (1926-1928) of the National Aeronautic Association (NAA), an organization devoted to furthering the general use of planes in the United States. In 1928, he was technical adviser to the American delegation at the International Civil Aeronautics Conference held in Washington. Orville Wright was an Honorary Guest.

(why a ton of iron tied around a drowning man?s leg is as a feather compared to putting you into the HC when you can?t furnish me one man in N.Y. to sign your application.?The ?H.C.? most probably is the Harvard Club in New York.Kennedy continues, ?Why you big fakir do you think I enjoy stalling along over a period of years with this thing. The reason I have done so is because to have done otherwise would have met an inglorious defeat. To attain bank presidencies, affections of H.L. & M.K. etc (with due modesty) required only to put over that energetic, capable, pleasing young man Joe Kennedy and to compare him with you, (why even your thick squash can see the way you suffer by comparison).

        Manuscript Account of 1914 Lima Military Coup,

      n.p., var. 1914 - The author took with him in 1914 a copy of the first edition of Ernest Peixotto's "Pacific Shores from Panama" on a trip to South America. In it he recorded a diary of his trip, and inserted photographs he took along the way. Then, in Lima, he writes: "7 A.M. Feb. 4th. . The revolution broke at 4a.m. this morning. The Palace across the Plaza was taken after an hour and a half of rifle and Gatlin gun fire. and so he fills a page with his impressions of the scene. Guillermo Billinghurst was overthrown on February 4, 1914, in a military coup headed by colonel Oscar R. Benavides, Javier and Manuel Prado, and conservatives members of the Civilista Party. "Feb. 5th . The President was seized + thrown into prison, his only loyal officer the Minister of War was killed." Nearly all of the photographs are filled on their backs with descriptions; most are of a travelogue type, but some are of the coup. On one of a soldier standing before dead bodies, "The soldier . was undecided whether to chase me or have his 'picture tuk'. Vanity won." Book is worn and shaken; sold for the diary and photographs, many of which were tipped to the pages of the book. The name is taken from the owner's signature on the first page of the Preface; but the last name is a trifle indistinct and may be Cockran or something similar. All photographs are signed with "W.S.C." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Five Photographs Taken During WWI in Rabaul - Papa New Guinea

      Rabaul (New Britain, Papua New Guinea), circa 1914. Set of five (5) photographs taken in Rabaul during the First World War by a gentleman serving with the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force (AN&MEF), possibly an early member of the Australian Light Horse Brigades. Photographs measure approximately 8,5 x 13,5 cm, with placename inscription, mounted individually with transparent corners onto cardstock leaves. Very Good Condition. Especially striking are the two photographs of a young mother and an elder woman, native to Rabaul, possibly of the Baining tribe, both gathering firewood, coconut, and root vegetables along a river bank. The Australian soldier is seen in uniform in three images whilst in Papua New Guinea's capital. In one of these, an inquisitive and barefoot boy invites himself into the scene, creating a most endearing moment.The Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force (AN&MEF) was a small volunteer force of approximately 2,000 men, raised in Australia shortly after the outbreak of the First World War to seize and destroy German wireless stations in German New Guinea in the south - west Pacific. The AN&MEF began forming following a request by the British government on 6 August 1914. The force was assembled under the guidance of Colonel James Legge, and was separate from the Australian Imperial Force. Under the command of Colonel William Holmes, the AN&MEF departed Sydney aboard HMAS Berrima, meeting with with battle cruiser HMAS Australia and light cruiser HMAS Sydney plus some destroyers at the eastern tip of New Guinea, arriving at Rabaul on 11 September. Following the capture of German possessions in the region on 17 September, ending the Siege of Toma, the AN&MEF provided occupation forces for the duration of the war. A military government was subsequently set up by Holmes and continued until 1921 when Australia received a mandate from the League of Nations to govern the territory. Australian Light Horse were mounted troops with characteristics of both cavalry and mounted infantry. They served in the Second Boer War and World War I. While Australian forces fought against the Boers in South Africa, the Boer methodology of conducting war was observed and considered to be the answer for Australian defence. Volunteer Light Horse Regiments were subsequently established around Australia, supported by the Rifle Club movement which provided semi - trained reinforcements for the various formations. The raising of the famous 1st Australian Horse Regiment was due to the vision and efforts of Lieutenant Colonel Kenneth Mackay who, as a Captain, obtained permission from the New South Wales Government to travel the country districts with a view of enlisting the best horsemen in the colony. The first enrolments took place at Murrumburrah on 28 August 1897 and by 20th November, recruiting throughout the country districts was completed with 3,000 eager applicants ready and willing to join the Regiment. Detachments were formed at Murrumburrah, Gunnedah, Gundagai, Quirinidi, Mudgee, Scone, Michelago, Boggabri, Cootamundra, Braidwood, Lue, Wallendbeen and Bungendore. From 1903, now part of the Commonwealth Military Forces, all Light Horse Regiments throughout the Commonwealth were to be armed and trained as mounted riflemen and not as cavalry who carry a sword for mounted shock action. The mounted infantry remained the key to the Australian defence posture until the Kitchener Report of 1910 which envisaged formations that could be slotted directly into an Imperial expeditionary force. By the outbreak of World War I, there were 23 light horse regiments within Australia's part - time military force, consisting of 9,000 personnel. During the inter - war years, a number of regiments were raised as part of Australia's part - time military force. A number of Australian light horse units are still in existence today.
