        Typed Letter signed, "Paul Poiret

      Paul Poiret Letter on Stationery Designed by Georges Lepape Poiret, Paul. Typed letter, signed "Paul Poiret" dated 28 April 1914. 1 page, folio (8 3/4 x 11"). Eleven lines. Written on Poiret's Ave D'Antin 26 address with woodcut logo by Georges Lepape prominently in upper left hand corner. The letter is written to M. Beaulieu, director of the Comoedie des Champs Elysses urging him to consider a Poiret protege for an advantageous part in an upcoming play. "Although she does not have the 30 years of theatre experience that would make her a star, I have advised her against accepting a part that would immediately put her on dead end tracks." Poiret asks that Beaulieu give the girl a part of "l'importance qu'elle merite..." and Poiret would be very willing to show professional courtesy for anything that Beaulieu might do for her. The only play produced at the Comoedie des Champs Elysses during this period was La Victime by Vanderem & Franc-Nohain which premiered on 5 March and continued through at least 30 May. The World War began in August, closing the theatres. La Victime was a slight and stylish "petit chef-díoeuvre dans toute l'acception du mot." It is possible that the actress who was the subject of this letter was the young Vera Vorel who acted the part of a young miss of 25 ans. Paul Poiret (20 April 1879, Paris, France - 30 April 1944, Paris) was a couturier who worked in Paris in the years before World War I. His influence is greater than any other designer of the period, and he is remembered as the premiere couturier of the entire art-deco period. Poiret dressed Ida Rubinstein, Isadora Duncan, Eleanore Duse and Sarah Bernhardt, as well as, many members of European nobility.

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1914. - "The Ideal Child is the Legacy Left Us By This Remarkable Artist" First Issue, In the Scarce First Issue Box[SMITH, Jessie Willcox, illustrator]. The Jessie Willcox Smith Mother Goose. A Careful and Full Selection of the Rhymes. With Numerous Illustrations In full color and black and white by. New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, [1914]. First edition, first issue (with pictorial peach endpapers with white geese and babies in mob-caps). Oblong quarto (8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches; 215 x 299 mm.). [2] blank; 173; [3] blank pp. Twelve full-page color plates, five full-page monotone plates, and numerous line drawings throughout the text. Original black cloth, spine lettered in white, pictorial label on front cover with an additional color plate of mother Goose in straw bonnet sheltering two children under her wings. A very fine copy in the original first-issue pictorial box (with "Net $2.50") with the original glassine (fragmented) wrapper. This is the first time that we have seen a first issue in the original pictorial box (neatly repaired at corners); it has become a vanishingly scarce occasion when both are found together."The ideal child is the legacy left us by this remarkable artist" (Michael S. Schnessel, Jessie Wilcox Smith).Illustrating over forty books during her career, Jessie Wilcox Smith (1863-1935), was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She later studied with Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute of Arts and Sciences. "By 1905, her clients now included Century, Collier's Weekly, Leslie's, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and [The] Ladies' Home Journal."As the book and magazine commissions continued, the focus of her work began to gel. Children became more and more the subject, whether it was expose articles like 'While the Mother Works: A Look at the Day Nurseries of New York' (Century, 1902), books like the Scribners Classic edition of A Child's Garden of Verses (1905), or just a series of plates like 'The Seven Ages of Childhood' done for seven successive issues of The Ladies' Home Journal in 1908-9. Though she never married nor had children of her own, they became the center of her life and work."It was on the covers of Good Housekeeping that most people became familiar with her art. Month after month, from December of 1917 through March of 1933, a new Jessie Willcox Smith image was on the newsstands and in countless homes. She painted the universal child, but the dresses and play suits they wore helped shape the dressing habits of a generation of children". Old Mother Goose,When she wanted to wander,Would ride through the airOn a very fine gander.Jack's mother came in,And caught the goose soon,And mounting its back,Flew up to the moon.Nudelman, A39.

Prima edizione. Esemplare in condizioni di conservazioni non ottimali: mancano il frontespizio e la carta con la dedica a Guglielmo II (ambedue censure messe in atto dallo stesso Campana su diverse copie del libro per cancellare il sottotitolo in tedesco al front., "Die Tragoedie des Letzen Germanen in Italien" e la dedica al sovrano d'uno stato divenuto nel frattempo nemico). Nastro adesivo al margine interno bianco di alcune carte. Qualche strappetto, senza perdite. L'esemplare fa parte della tiratura con le pp. da 135 alla fine con il margine basso più corto di circa 1 cm e con l'errata sull'ultima pagina ad integrazione d'un rigo parzialmente perso. Firma di possesso sul'occhietto: "Bianca Lusena, Antignano, 17 giugno 1916". Bianca Lusena fu una crocerossina per cui Campana ebbe probabilmente una passione e alla quale donò - nel giugno del 1916, nella stessa occasione in cui verosimilmente le affidò questo libro - un autografo del testo della poesia "Domodossola 1915", poi pubblicata nel "Taccuino" curato da Matacotta nel 1949 col titolo "Canto proletario italo-francese". L'esemplare presenta anche alcune sottolineature a lapis e la cesura d'un verso (sempre a lapis). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        SINDBAD THE SAILOR AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1914]. First edition. With 23 fine colour plates by Edmund Dulac tipped-in on cream stock with decorative borders and with captioned tissue guards, each page of text is also framed by a magnificently ornate border. 4to, publisher&#146;s original tan cloth with turquoise blue floral patterns in overall design, the upper cover lettered and embellished in gilt with pictorial designs of a ship passing a castle with minarets, the spine lettered in gilt and pictorially decorated, floral endpapers. vi, 223 pp. A beautiful and very fine copy. AN EXCELLENT COPY OF THIS WONDERFUL WORK BY EDMUND DULAC. FIRST EDITION. "In the time of Harun-er-Rashid there was, in Baghdad, a rich merchant named Sindbad the Sailor, the source of whose wealth was a mystery...." <br> Within these exquisitely decorated pages, the reader finds a monumental display of Dulac&#146;s Persian sensibility and Eastern aesthetic. Sindbad&#146;s numerous adventures, Aladdin and his Magic Lamp, The three Calenders Story, and the Sleeper Awakened Story all come to dramatic realization in these 23 jewel-like illustrations. We see the influence of Persian miniatures and Oriental and Greek primitives throughout.<br> &#147;In some of the pictures for this book, Dulac continues with the Chinese style developed for Princess Badoura the year before. In others, he reduces the scale and adds a richness of detail to create an effect similar to that seen in Persian and Indian miniature art. The pictures are generally serious, but Dulac&#146;s ever-present humor creeps in to give us the whimsical figure of the mangy camel. And always there is the Oriental inspiration.... Hence the Sindbad pictures, whether one calls them a flowering or a major outburst of Dulac&#146;s preoccupation with Eastern-Near Eastern painting, certainly are no surprise. They stand almost as a hallmark of one very persistent technique among his ever-evolving styles.&#148;-Hughey.<br> "Mr. Dulac has provided pictures which preserve to a marvel the Persian feeling" - Times Literary Supplement, Dec. 1914

        2 autograph letters signed to Mrs. Benjamin Osgood Peirce

      1914-1926 1914 - Bridgman, Percy Williams (1881-1961). (1) Autograph letter signed to Mrs. Benjamin Osgood Peirce. N.p., n.d. [ca. January 1914]. 1 page plus integral blank. 175 x 139 mm. (2) Autograph letter signed to Mrs. Peirce. Cambridge, Mass., October 3, 1926. 1 sheet, on letterhead of Harvard University's Jefferson Physical Laboratory. 268 x 204 mm. Together 2 items. Tiny marginal tears in 1926 letter, but both letters fine otherwise.From American physicist and philosopher of science Percy W. Bridgman, professor of physics at Harvard and winner of the 1946 Nobel Prize for his discoveries made in the field of high pressure physics, to the widow of American mathematician Benjamin Osgood Peirce (1854-1914). Peirce, author of the influential textbook Elements of the Theory of Newtonian Potential Function (1886), was instrumental in developing the teaching of mathematical physics at Harvard. Bridgman, who obtained his PhD. in physics at Harvard in 1908 and was appointed an instructor in physics by the university in 1910, would have known Peirce both as a student and as a fellow faculty member.Bridgman's first letter to Mrs. Peirce, written shortly after Peirce's death on January 14, 1914, expresses his condolences in almost poetic fashion:"We hope that these flowers may not be too late with their message of our sympathy and love. They are late because we too have been passing through a deep experience, although ours had a happy ending. Our little daughter [Jane Bridgman] was born Thursday morning. It seemed to me through the long hours of waiting that birth must be very close to death itself. I am sure that now I realize a little more than I could before all that this means to you . . ."In his second letter, written twelve years later, Bridgman thanks Mrs. Peirce for sending him Peirce's Mathematical and Physical Papers 1903-1913 (1926), which had recently been published:"This is to thank you and to let you know how highly I shall prize the collection of Professor Peirce's papers which you have just sent me. You would be surprised if you knew how many times I think of Professor Peirce as I go about the Laboratory, or as I prepare my lectures in the courses which were once his; the influence which he had I shall never forget. . . . "In 1926 Bridgman had just been appointed to Harvard's Hollis Professorship of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy, which Peirce had held from 1888 until his death in 1914.

        La Critica. Rivista di letteratura, storia e filosofia, diretta da Benedetto Croce.

      Laterza, 1914 - 1940, Bari, - Raccolta di 27 annate consecutive dal 1914 al 1940 della storica rivista bimestrale fondata e diretta da Benedetto Croce per quasi un cinquantennio (interrottasi nel 1944, venne proseguita sino al 1951 nei 20 "Quaderni della Critica"). Le annate sono legate in solida mezza tela blu e angoli, con titolo in oro al dorso e piatti cartonati in carta di Varese. Ottimo stato conservativo. Opera editoriale che ha del prodigioso, in quanto scritta per la maggior parte dallo stesso Croce (la maggior parte della sua opera si trova qui in forma pre-originale, prima della pubblicazione in volume a sé), con un nucleo di collaboratori che comprendeva alcuni dei maggiori filosofi, storici e critici della prima metà del Novecento (Gentile, Borgese, Volpe, Lombardo Radice, Omodeo, De Ruggiero, ecc.), la rivista rivestì un ruolo di assoluta preminenza e del tutto eccezionale nella cultura italiana di un cinquantennio, concorrendo in modo decisivo a sprovincializzarla e a metterla al passo con le più fervide istanze dell'intellettualità europea. Essa fu inoltre "l'unica voce libera che il fascismo fosse costretto a tollerare, data la fama internazionale del suo direttore; di qui il significato della rivista nella storia civile italiana, come simbolo di liberalismo" (Dizionario generale degli autori italiani contemporanei, I, p. 361).

        Autographed Letter Signed on personal stationery

      Springfield, IL, 1914. unbound. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, Springfield, Illinois, April 25, 1914. Written to American book publisher Thomas Bird Mosher, concerning the Bibelot, in part: "...Grandly enclosed fifty cents - please send me as many or few as you can spare of the Bibelot that contained the translations of The Vigil of Venus, the old Latin anonymous poem: &#39;I have loved, but they last never: Love will find us in the morn.&#39; Having been haunted by the memory of that conflict for all one year, I am acting like an honorable gentleman and sending for it outright, downright, straight forward and directly." The bizarre closing of this letter is undoubtedly a cryptic reference to his tumultuous relationship with fellow poet Sara Teasdale. In February 1914 Lindsay met Teasdale in St. Louis following a period of correspondence that dates back to February 1913. The correspondence, much of it housed in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, sadly depicts Lindsay as trying to dominate her in every manner. Though she felt that Lindsay loved her, she often referred to him as a control freak that smothered her. Eight months after this letter was written she married Ernst Filsinger (Vachel Lindsay reading the announcement in the society column). In a sad postscript to this story, Lindsay committed suicide in 1931 by drinking a bottle of Lysol, and Teasdale killed herself two years later by ingesting a bottle of barbiturates. Signed "Nicholas Vachel Lindsay." Natural folds and gentle toning. Very good condition. American poet considered the father of modern singing poetry, in which verses are meant to be sung or chanted.

        RESEARCHES INTO CHINESE SUPERSTITIONS

      Shanghai: T&#39;Usewei Printing Press, 1914 - 1926.. Two parts in eight volumes (of thirteen published through 1938 ?). Open sewn cloth backed printed boards. Heavily illustrated with hundreds of plates and facsimiles printed via chromolithograph. Extremities of boards worn, a few corners bruised, spine labels largely chipped away, volume 5 shaken, with several gatherings started, endsheets a bit dusty, a bit musty, some marginal tanning; generally a good set, the plates fresh and bright. First edition in English of this mammoth undertaking, translated from the French, with historical and explanatory notes, by M. Kennelly. The First Part (comprised of the first five volume) is devoted to Superstitious Practices; the remaining three volumes, denoted the Second Part, are devoted to the Chinese Pantheon of religious figures. Given the span of years over which the work was published, many of the extant sets are fragmentary or want later volumes. Doré served as a Jesuit missionary for over twenty years in the Kiangsu and Nganhwei provinces. His original French text began publication in 1911 as elements in the VARIÉTÉS SINOLOGIQUES, and the preface to the first volume of this English text projected completion of the French work, in eight volumes, by 1915.

        BILL JONES OF PARADISE VALLEY OKLAHOMA. HIS LIFE AND ADVENTURES FOR OVER FORTY YEARS IN THE GREAT SOUTHWEST. HE WAS A PIONEER IN THE DAYS OF THE BUFFALO, THE WILD INDIAN, THE OKLAHOMA BOOMER, THE COWBOY AND THE OUTLAW

      [Chicago: M.A. Donohue & Co., 1914]., 1914. First edition. 8vo. Original maroon cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, frontis., 328 pp., preface, illustrated. "In the old days, when that part of the West, stretching from the Missouri river to the Rockies, and from the Rio Grande to the British possessions, was an almost unbroken wilderness, inhabited by roaming Indians and wild animals, there came a class of men, lured by the love of adventure, who were not afraid to brave the hardships of pioneer life." This book is the story of one of those pioneers. Six Guns 365 says, "This privately printed book was written in a humorous vein, and contains some material on the Dodge City gunmen and Billy the Kid. .... I corresponded with this old-timer before his death and bought all the remaining copies of his book. It was a very scarce item until I began releasing the remainder, and it is still scarce." Herd 398 says "Scarce." The former owner, Grant H. Clayton, has made a number of penciled comments on the front endpapers, as well as underlining sections throughout the book. Additionally, laid-in is a letter to an Oklahoma City bookseller dated December 19, 1978, from Clayton requesting titles he is interested to buy. The bookseller responds in red ink to each of his questions. Former owner&#39;s business card affixed to front paste-down sheet, notations on front endpapers and throughout the text, and front cloth lightly mottled, else very good, tight copy of a difficult title.

        Richter&#39;s History and Records of Base Ball: The American Nation&#39;s Chief Sport

      Philadelphia: Francis C. Richter. 1914. First. First edition. 306pp., illustrated from photographs. The front fly lacking, with some erosion to the cloth at the spine ends, and a little foxing. A well-worn but sound, good copy of this classic baseball book with a nice association, Inscribed by Richter to his son: "To my dear son Francis C. Jr. with the best wishes of his father. Francis C. Richter. Philadelphia Pa. March 14, 1914." As a writer, Richter was an influential force in the early development of the game. Beginning with the Philadelphia Day in 1872, then the Sunday World and Public Ledger, he was the first to set up a separate sports department for any newspaper. Richter was instrumental in the formation of the original American Association in 1882 and helped to place the Philadelphia Athletics in it. The next year he helped to organize the Phillies in the National League and started Sporting Life, a weekly newspaper, which became a great force in baseball. In 1907 he was offered the presidency of the National League but turned it down. He edited the Reach Guide from its inception in 1901 to the 1926 volume, which he completed days before his death. A splendid association copy. #314522. .

Alice Springs and the Arunta. The first, and perhaps the most significant, of White&#39;s self-published accounts of his explorations in South Australia. White was an intrepid traveller of central Australia, including a 1913 journey to Alice Springs by camel, and to the Musgrave and Everard the following year. White later accompanied expeditions to Cooper Creek, the Nullarbor, and the Finke River, and became an advocate for the central desert Aborigines. {i Into the Dead Heart} contains significant ethnological description of the desert tribes, including anecdotal descriptions of the author&#39;s interactions with individual Aboriginal people. Also included are photographs of Arunta men in ceremonial garb and paint. Other photographs show various inland scenes including the Lindsay River, the surgery and telegraph station at Alice Springs, a particularly interesting shot of native dwellings on the Hugh River, Krichauff gorge and similar geographical features of interest. An inscription on the verso of the title page reads: &#39;To J.W. Hosking Esq. with the kindest regards. From the writer & his wife. Weetunga. 3/11/14.&#39;.

        Great Catherine: a Thumbnail Sketch of Court Life in St. Petersburgh in the Eighteenth Century [3 copies].

      London: Constable & Co., 1914 - Blue-flecked paper wrappers. Housed in a green half morocco slipcase and indiviual chemises. One copy ink-stamped "Second Proof" and "R&R Clark LTD Edinburgh 27 Feb. 1914". Excellent copies. Three copies, in various states, of rehearsal or rough proof editions of Great Catherine, each inscribed by Shaw ("G. Bernard Shaw 26/7/30") with a short explanation. Two copies are in an early state, with the Byron quote on the title uncorrected, and lacking a copyright line on the verso of the title. In his inscriptions, Shaw refers to these copies as " an early rehearsal copy. The misquotation from Byron's Don Juan is uncorrected "; and "This seems to be really a spare proof and not a rehearsal copy. I do not know how it got loose " Shaw has corrected the quote in ink on one copy. The third copy is printed on thicker paper, corrects the title page quote, and includes the copyright slug. Shaw describes it in his inscription, as " a rehearsal copy, nominally a 'rough proof' " Laurence AA8. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Importante Lettre signée du Général Percin datée du 25 septembre 1914 : le général Percin expose sa justification face "aux bruits extraordinaires qui ont couru sur mon compte visant le rôle que j'ai joué dans la défense de Lille, pendant le mois d'Août 1914"

      1914 - 1 lettre dactylographiée de 14 feuillets numérotés (dactylographiés au recto), datée du 25 septembre 1914, à Saint-Georges de Didonne (Charentes-Inférieure), signée par le Général Percin Au lendemain de la prise de Lille par les troupes allemandes, confronté à l'hostilité de la population, au silence puis à la prudence du Ministre de la Guerre, le général Percin adresse cette lettre à l'un de ses amis (vraisemblablement le Général Maurice Nadal) "en vous priant de la faire lire autour de vous. Vous m'aiderez ainsi à sortir de la situation intolérable dans laquelle je me débats depuis un mois". Il expose par la suite, en détail, la situation à son arrivée à "Lille, le 3 août 1914", et ses efforts pour armer une place de guerre dont le déclassement avait été évoqué à la Chambre. Il attribue l'hostilité dont il est actuellement victime à la confusion suscitée dans les esprits par la coïncidence entre son déplacement à d'autres fonctions par ses supérieurs et la prise de Lille.
