        Vieux Marché 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 supérieur 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).

        On the Hills of Time. Calendar for 1915

      T. N. Foulis, London and Edinburgh 1914 - Scarce panorama. Closed, 14 by 11 cm, and opening to about 132 cm in length, with twelve panels on each side. With each fold, a color plate illustration representing the month in some way on the left, the month's calendar on the right, and this alternative pattern runs on both sides of the panorama. The same decoration serves as background for each month's calendar, but the facing full illustrated plate carry captions, and these and the imagery of the plate relate to the ongoing war either directly or indirectly in most instances. For example, in a few plates a man looks as if he is a soldier -- it is not always 100 percent clear that this is so -- but the sentiments are precisely the grist of wartime longing, with pleas for peace, love, a recognition of strife, etc. As to the rareness of this panorama, only two items with the same title were located on OCLC, both being calendars for 1914, which almost certainly had differences besides the monthly calendars. Soiling of outer panels. Rubbing and wear along folds. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Tarzan of The Apes

      Chicago: A.C. McClurg, 1914 First edition, first printing of the author's first book. First state of the text with "W. F. Hall Printing Co" set in old English type in two lines to the verso of the copyright page. First state publisher's red cloth binding, lacking the acorn device on the spine. A very good copy with the spine lettering dimmed, cloth lightly faded at spine. Internally, pages clean with only a few minor spots, spine shaken with the text block cracked with some separation between several gatherings, hinges sound. Overall, a bright and presentable copy. Tarzan of the Apes is the first novel in Burroughs' series of Tarzan adventure stories. Specifically, it tells the story a boy named John Clayton who was born in the jungles of central Africa to English parents and adopted by apes after being orphaned. The apes named him "Tarzan" and raised him as their own, causing the boy to feel more affinity for his primate "relatives" than human tribes. Tarzan begins to question his identity, however, when he meets his unbeknownst cousin William Cecil Clayton and the American Jane Porter, with whom he falls in love. Notably, Tarzan made his literary debut in the October 1912 issue of The All-Story Magazine, which printed the story in its entirety; the literary periodical typically serialized stories in monthly installments, making Tarzan's publication somewhat unusual - an early indication of the novel's imminent popularity.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

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.. Rare. First Edition, first issue, limited to 50 signed and numbered copies, this no. 14. 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 the copies on laid paper 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" (for 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 unique to the standard version of the issue. 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 Albert Giraud (1860-1929) in the German translation by Erich Otto Hartleben (1864-1905).

        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. 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. 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. 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".

        Across the Plains in '54 A Story for Young People of Early Emmigration to California [With:] The Captive Maidens or the Prizes Won A Sequel to Across the Plains in 54 [sic] And by the Author of "Across the Plains in 54 " A Story of the early settlement

      [San Francisco]: Chase & Rae, Printers, [c. 1914]. Two parts in one. 8vo, original printed tan wrappers, in new folding box with Plexiglas lid. [iv], 232 pp. Wrappers smudged, particularly at upper front wrapper; pervasive interior light dampstaining, with some spotting at terminal leaves; but a sound, solid copy of a most uncommon work. "Second Edition, Revised, Corrected and Enlarged by the Author" (as stated on the verso of the first title-page), and the first edition to include The Captive Maidens. The narrative tells of the author's emigration from Missouri to California in 1854, his return home in 1860, and his second overland crossing in 1865, as well as his adventures in California afterward. There seems to be little doubt of the general authenticity of Nott's travels, but he unfortunately recasts them into a fictionalized tale for young readers. Still, his plainspoken sincerity remains effective. Most of the California activity, mining, ranching, Indian-fighting, etc., takes place around Marysville. According to OCLC, the only copy of the first edition, undated and comprising just 76 pages, is at the Bancroft Library; about 15 copies of the second edition are listed. Wright Howes assumes that the first edition was not issued in book form, and he speculates that this second edition was published in 1905 and was almost completely destroyed in the San Francisco earthquake and fire of '06. But the book's appearance makes it clear that it was produced considerably later; and the printers, Chase & Rae, seem to have been active only between about 1914 and 1925. Howes & Mintz call for a portrait, but no other authorities or booksellers record it. Almost all citations of this book, in fact, are vague and confused, reflecting its remarkable scarcity. Cowan (II), p. 457. Graff 3045. Howes N-213. Mintz 142. Towneley, p. 113.

        T. TURNBULL'S TRAVELS FROM THE UNITED STATES ACROSS THE PLAINS TO CALIFORNIA

      Privately printed, 1914. - [Separate No. 158]. [From the Proceedings of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin for 1913, pages 151-225]. Edited with introduction and notes by Frederic L. Paxson, and with typographic arrangement by Reuben G. Thwaites. This copy is signed by Paxson, the Pulitzer Prize winning American historian. 22 3/4 cm. in brown printed wrappers. 75 pp., 7 route maps. Thomas Turnbull’s journey west of the Missouri was by the Mormon Trail rather than by the Oregon Trail, which was usually followed in 1852 by gold-seekers, and his journal is one of the few records of travel by that route. Dan Elbert Clark says in The American Historical Review, Volume XX, 1915, "Turnbull’s journey was made in 1852 and his route lay from Chicago across Illinois and Iowa to Council Bluffs, thence up the Platte River to Fort Laramie, along the Sweetwater River through the South Pass, and down the Humboldt River to the gold diggings in California. The journal records the incidents, the hardships, and the scenery of the trip in considerable detail, and reflects the spirit of the emigration to the gold fields which even in 1852 was so strong that at times the line of teams stretched out over the plains as far as the eye could see. Furthermore, the journal records the experiences - the disappointments, the hopes, the sickness, and the varying fortune - of one who reached California after the best claims had been taken, when the country was ‘all dug up' and prices were abnormally high.'” Kurutz 640 says, “Turnbull left Chicago, Illinois, on April 16, 1852, traveled by way of the California Trail, and reached 'Squaw Hollow,' near Hangtown, on August 18. His next entry reads: ‘went to seek my fortune but found every Creek & Kanyon, covered with men & Hundreds going round looking for work. I thought the country somewhat different to what they represented it to be.’ Turnbull, in the remaining portion of his diary, described his mining experiences, illness, trip to Benicia and Sacramento, and return to prospecting at Newcastle, Secret Diggings, and Spanish Ravine. Appended to this vivid diary is a letter from Secret Diggings dated March 29, 1853, in which Turnbull detailed his mining experiences and complained that the mines had been worked out. Turnbull’s original journal is in the library of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. Frederick L. Paxson edited and introduced the manuscript for this publication.” Eberstadt 105:302a says, “An exact transcript (never before put into type) of the extraordinarily interesting diary kept by Turnbull during his trip across the plains from Chicago to Hangtown, in 1852, and during his troubles and experiences at the mines after his arrival at the diggings. His route was unusual. After leaving Kanesville, he took the Mormon Trail on the north side of the Platte. From a point opposite Fort Laramie to the Red Buttes, near which the Oregon Trail cut across from the Platte to the Sweetwater, Turnbull’s description of his route and the country traversed in almost unique." Wrappers lightly worn at edges and with light wear to spine ends, else a very good copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
