        Mädchen mit Trachtenhaube

      . Bleistift auf leicht rötlichem Papier, unten links signiert: "Fritz Erler", rückseitig bezeichnet: "Sonntags gezeichnet, beim Kartoffelschälen in (...). Der Haubenrand ultramarin blau, schön kontrastierend zu dem tiefen (...) Braun des Gesichts u. der gelben Bordüren d. Brust (...), 30,4 x 23,4 cm. Diese Zeichnung von Fritz Erler zeugt von einem empfindsamen Künstler, der Melancholie und Anmut zu verbinden vermag. Anders als die dem Jugendstil zuzurechnenden frühen Wandbilder und Gemälde der Zeit bis etwa 1914, geht es in dieser Zeichnung nicht um Stilisierung und Flächigkeit, sondern um emotionales Nachspüren und Ergründen. Mit den großformatigen und häufig theatralisch inszenierten Arbeiten der späteren Zeit hat das Blatt ebenfalls wenig gemein. Möglicherweise ist seine Entstehung in jene Zeit anzusetzen, in der Erler sich häufig in Holzhausen am Ammersee aufhielt. In den 1910er Jahren war er dort anzutreffen. In dieser Zeit beschäftigte er sich wiederholt mit Themen und Personen aus dem ländlichen Umfeld. Von den ersten Illustrationen für die Zeitschrift "Jugend" über erste Gesamtkunstwerke wie die Gestaltung des Musikzimmers der Villa Neisser in Breslau, von der Gründung der Künstlervereinigung "Die Scholle" bis zu den Kriegsbildern des Ersten Weltkrieges: Erlers Kunst umspannt viele Bereich und Formen. Bei diesem Umfang und dem hohen Grad an Stilisierung in seinen Arbeiten ist die vorliegende Zeichnung ein wunderbarer Ausdruck spontaner Künstlerbegeisterung. Wie hingehaucht erscheinen die dünnen und sanften Bleistiftstriche auf dem rötlichen Papier. Ganz vorsichtig umreißt er die Konturen des Gesichts und füllt behutsam die Schatten mit einer breiten Schraffur. Auch wenn er in der rückseitigen Aufschrift großen Wert auf den Reiz des Farbzusammenklangs legt, so ist doch gerade die Konzentration auf den bloßen Strich bestens geeignet, die emotionale Einfühlung zu vermitteln.

        DUBLINERS

      Richards , 1914. Richards , 1914. First edition. Original maroon cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper cover. A very good copy with a little fading to the spine and a few faint splash marks to the upper cover. Internally clean with some foxing to the prelims and page edges. The gilt titles are bright and the binding crisp, a well preserved example of a susceptible book. Joyce's unsurpassed collection of short stories, in which he attempts to 'present Dublin to the world'. The book had a tortuous birth: it was to be Joyce's first published work and appear in 1906, but the publication was abandoned during printing due to disagreements between Joyce and his publishers regarding emendations. In defence of his writing, Joyce said famously in a letter to Richards "It is not my fault that the odour of ashpits and old weeds and offal hangs around my stories. I seriously believe that you will retard the course of civilisation in Ireland by preventing the Irish people from having one good look at themselves in my nicely polished looking-glass." After the publication of Chamber Music in 1907 Joyce offered Dubliners to Elkin Mathews and upon rejection approached the Dublin publishers Maunsel. They printed an edition of 1000 copies in July 1910, but all but a few of the page proofs were burned by the printer because of "objectionable" passages in some of the stories. In 1913 Richards eventually agreed to publish the book in an edition of 1250 copies, 746 of which were bound up and the remaining 504 were sold to B.W.Huebsch to form the American edition. The book was published on 15th June, 1914.

        THE TERRA NOVA AT THE ICE FOOT, CAPE EVANS

      The Fine Art Society [], 1914. The Fine Art Society [], 1914. Original tinted carbon photograph on board depicting the Terra Nova tethered to the ice with a large ice structure to the foreground. 43.5x31cm. Mounted on green card. Signed by the photographer to the lower left. Very good condition with four thin horizontal blisters to the upper part of the image. Herbert G. Ponting was a self-taught photographer who was enlisted as Scott's official photographer on his British Antarctic Expedition to the South Pole (1910-1913). As the first professional photographer to be employed on an Antarctic expedition, Ponting considered this posting to be a challenging opportunity to use the art of photography to aid geographical and natural discovery. Accompanying the Terra Nova crew for almost fourteen months, Ponting took over 1,000 photographs that chronicled every aspect of the journey in astonishing detail, including intimate shots of the crew's day-to-day life. He built himself a darkroom at Cape Evans and worked tirelessly and enthusiastically to produce perfectly balanced and composed images. This image is enlarged from the negative made by Ponting at Cape Evans, taken on 16 January 1911. Rarely found signed.

        A VOYAGE AROUND THE WORLD MADE BY JOEL ROOT 1802 - 1806 [cover title].

      [N.p. n.d., but ca. 1914]. - 73pp., typescript, printed on rectos only. Small folio. Original limp blue morocco, gilt. Inscribed on front flyleaf. Light wear to extremities, slightly heavier to corners and spine ends. Internally clean. Very good. A very interesting narrative of a voyage made by Joel Root (b. 1770), a native of Southington, Connecticut, as supercargo and director of a voyage on the ship Huron which left New Haven in April 1802 in search of hair seals for the American market and fur seals to be sold in China. Clearing Cape Horn in January 1803, they arrived at the Mocha, Lobos, and St. Mary's islands off the coast of South America, where they found a large population of seals. Root and a small party were blown off course in a whale boat and temporarily separated from the Huron. After being briefly imprisoned at Concepcion, they rejoined the Huron on February 25th. The captain headed for the Lobos Islands off the coast of Peru, while Root chose to stay behind on St. Mary's Island off the coast of Chile. With part of the crew he was able to take ten thousand seal skins. On the return of the Huron, they set sail on September 25th for the island of Massafuero, one of the Juan Ferdinand Islands, also off the coast of Chile. There Root proposed to take fur seals for the China market, while the Huron returned to the U.S. with its cargo of 19,000 skins. "Mr. Root was surprized to find on the island more men than seals. In all there were about 150 men." These were lone sealers left behind by various ships. Root himself took about 4,000 skins, and then purchased another 5,000 or more from the loners who had been threatened by the Viceroy of Peru with imprisonment if they failed to leave the island. In fire sale fashion, Root bought the skins for twenty-five to fifty cents each, and upon reaching Canton he sold them for ninety-five cents apiece and invested the proceeds in China goods which he then sold in Hamburg. From Hamburg he sailed for St. Petersburg, where he bought a cargo of mixed goods to sell on his return to the United States. Root reached New Haven again on October 30, 1806. ^Four other manuscript versions of Root's narrative have been located, all in some way different. There is also a published account of the voyages in the Papers of the New Haven Historical Society (Vol. 5, 1894), which differs markedly from this. That version is told in the first person, while this is in the third; it is generally more detailed but also omits two substantial sections included here which tell of an encounter with pirates at Sumatra and an incident with a disgruntled sealer who almost murdered Root. The present narrative was written by Dr. Emile B. Gardette, Root's grandson-in-law, based on accounts related to him by Root in 1836. According to the text, Gardette wrote this in 1841. As suggested by some of the wording, he may also have used an account which was written in 1840 by Root himself for his family. The original manuscript of that account is not located, but the New York Historical Society lists a "transcript of memoir originally written in 1840 and subsequently copied by [Root's] daughter in 1847." East Carolina University's Joyner Library also holds a copy of the 1840 memoir, photocopied from an unspecified source and previously owned by Jake D. Moore of Kingston, N.C. The University of Montana likewise holds a copy with more or less the same text as the present copy, though theirs is 56pp. rather than 73pp., and is described as a "photocopy of a typescript" with added photographs and genealogy. As for Gardette's manuscript - the original source for our typescript and the version at the University of Montana - the Connecticut Historical Society lists what it calls a "biography" written ca. 1841, a "handwritten narrative" that could be Gardette's account. For remarks on Root's successful enterprise see Busch, WAR AGAINST SEALS: A HISTORY OF THE NORTH AMERICAN SEAL FISHERY (McGill, 1985).

        35 Original World War I Photographs: Two Home Coming Parades for the First Division; New York City and Washington DC, September 10 & 17, 1914.

      1914 - "New York lived yesterday probably the last chapter in its history of great military spectacles growing out of the war. . It was the town's first opportunity to greet the men of the 1st Division, and to let them know it remembered their glorious part in the American Army's smashing drives at Toul, at Cantigny, at Soissons, at St. Mihiel, and at the Meuse and the Argonne" wrote the New York Times of the welcome parade of Sept. 10,1914. The 25,000 fighters of the First Division marched in full combat gear on Fifth Avenue from 107th Street down to Washington Square. The parade also honored General John J.

        A VOYAGE AROUND THE WORLD MADE BY JOEL ROOT 1802 - 1806 [cover title]

      [N.p. n.d., but ca. 1914].. [N.p. n.d., but ca. 1914].. 73pp., typescript, printed on rectos only. Small folio. Original limp blue morocco, gilt. Inscribed on front flyleaf. Light wear to extremities, slightly heavier to corners and spine ends. Internally clean. Very good. A very interesting narrative of a voyage made by Joel Root (b. 1770), a native of Southington, Connecticut, as supercargo and director of a voyage on the ship Huron which left New Haven in April 1802 in search of hair seals for the American market and fur seals to be sold in China. Clearing Cape Horn in January 1803, they arrived at the Mocha, Lobos, and St. Mary's islands off the coast of South America, where they found a large population of seals. Root and a small party were blown off course in a whale boat and temporarily separated from the Huron. After being briefly imprisoned at Concepcion, they rejoined the Huron on February 25th. The captain headed for the Lobos Islands off the coast of Peru, while Root chose to stay behind on St. Mary's Island off the coast of Chile. With part of the crew he was able to take ten thousand seal skins. On the return of the Huron, they set sail on September 25th for the island of Massafuero, one of the Juan Ferdinand Islands, also off the coast of Chile. There Root proposed to take fur seals for the China market, while the Huron returned to the U.S. with its cargo of 19,000 skins. "Mr. Root was surprized to find on the island more men than seals... In all there were about 150 men." These were lone sealers left behind by various ships. Root himself took about 4,000 skins, and then purchased another 5,000 or more from the loners who had been threatened by the Viceroy of Peru with imprisonment if they failed to leave the island. In fire sale fashion, Root bought the skins for twenty-five to fifty cents each, and upon reaching Canton he sold them for ninety-five cents apiece and invested the proceeds in China goods which he then sold in Hamburg. From Hamburg he sailed for St. Petersburg, where he bought a cargo of mixed goods to sell on his return to the United States. Root reached New Haven again on October 30, 1806. ^Four other manuscript versions of Root's narrative have been located, all in some way different. There is also a published account of the voyages in the Papers of the New Haven Historical Society (Vol. 5, 1894), which differs markedly from this. That version is told in the first person, while this is in the third; it is generally more detailed but also omits two substantial sections included here which tell of an encounter with pirates at Sumatra and an incident with a disgruntled sealer who almost murdered Root. The present narrative was written by Dr. Emile B. Gardette, Root's grandson-in-law, based on accounts related to him by Root in 1836. According to the text, Gardette wrote this in 1841. As suggested by some of the wording, he may also have used an account which was written in 1840 by Root himself for his family. The original manuscript of that account is not located, but the New York Historical Society lists a "transcript of memoir originally written in 1840 and subsequently copied by [Root's] daughter in 1847." East Carolina University's Joyner Library also holds a copy of the 1840 memoir, photocopied from an unspecified source and previously owned by Jake D. Moore of Kingston, N.C. The University of Montana likewise holds a copy with more or less the same text as the present copy, though theirs is 56pp. rather than 73pp., and is described as a "photocopy of a typescript" with added photographs and genealogy. As for Gardette's manuscript - the original source for our typescript and the version at the University of Montana - the Connecticut Historical Society lists what it calls a "biography" written ca. 1841, a "handwritten narrative" that could be Gardette's account. For remarks on Root's successful enterprise see Busch, WAR AGAINST SEALS: A HISTORY OF THE NORTH AMERICAN SEAL FISHERY (McGill, 1985).

Illustrated with numerous maps and plans. This is a collection of the monthly magazine Buchan published that gives a detailed history of the First World War.

The series had by far the largest circulation of any war commentary. The enterprise, together with his growing reputation as a writer and his support for the war, gave prominence to his role as correspondent for The Times and the Daily News.
