        Corrispondenza autografa firmata, circa cinquanta pagine. 1914-1925.

      RUSSO Ferdinando. Il poeta che con i suoi versi più si avvicinò all'animo del popolo napoletano. 1868-1927. Corrispondenza autografa firmata, circa cinquanta pagine, tra lettere e cartoline postali, compresa tra il Maggio 1914 ed il 1925, alcune senza data diretta a Angelo Flavio Guidi, giornalista e scrittore, a lungo collaboratore di Vela Latina ed Epoca. E' compresa anche una poesia: "Mò cà luntana stai". Un interessante spaccato questo carteggio sulla vita e l'opera di Ferdinando Russo che da direttore di Vela Latina accetta di buon grado l'offerta di collaborazione del giovane Guidi cui è prodigo di suggerimenti giornalistici e complimenti per i vari articoli con qualche espressione d'augurio di gloria e vittorie per il giovane sottotenente in zona di guerra. Il 2 Luglio 1919 ".ho saputo per caso che siete redattore di Epoca. Posso mandarvi i miei libri ?". Inizia così una lunga e fattiva collaborazione con Epoca e molte sono le questioni attraenti. Dalle lamentele per ritardi amministrativi, alle proteste per i tagli subiti da i suoi articoli. Un breve accenno a Giovanni Verga ".il nostro grande dimenticato.". Un ringraziamento a Benedetto Croce per la sistemazione della Biblioteca e del Museo di Napoli del quale ".io sono ispettore.". Un insieme assai interessante per una valutazione dell'opera di Ferdinando Russo.

        [Cycles Motos Alcyon] [Lehmann et Jolly motos Alcyon 1914]

      Colombes: Mabileau & Co., 1914. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. approximately 26 1/2 x 12 1/4 inches. approximately 35 3/8 x 17 3/4 inches. Founded in 1902 by the industrialist Edmond Gentil, Alcyon was a manufacturer of motorcycles and cycles. Renowned for their sturdiness and buoyancy, their motorbikes were built with a Swiss ZL engine beginning in 1904. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut ( 1879-1909) produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite M. Montaut, Ernest's wife, continued his work after his death producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she usually used "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      LACERBA nasce da una infuocata secessione con i protagonisti de LA VOCE e viene appunto fondata da PAPINI - SOFFICI E PALAZZESCHI, dopo la loro uscita. Lo spumeggiante e fondamentale dibattito sul futurismo ma anche su temi letterari, segno' l'epoca, con autori quali Agnoletti, Altomare Libero, Apollinaire, Balilla Pratella, Binazzi, BOCCIONI, Buzzi, Cangiullo, CARRA', Cavacchioli, D'alba Auro, Folgore, Jahier, Jannelli, MARINETTI, Moscardelli, PALAZZESCHI, PAPINI. SBARBARO, SOFFICIi, Tavolato , Tommei, ecc, ecc, Il giornale lo firma GUIDO PUGNI gerente ma i protagonisti sono ben alri. Tra i testi di questa annata notevoli i disegni di Archipenko, BOCCIOINI, CARRA' CEZANNE, PICASSO, ROSAI. RUSSOLO, SEVERINI SOFFICI, ZANNINI ,ecc. L'antico collezionista ha purtroppo rifilato i giornali (non ha leso i testi ma ferito le testate - le foto evidenziano l''accaduto) Mancano i num. 13,14,17 (possiamo collalborare a reperirli) e le pagine da 281 a 286 sul n- 21 - Il numero 24 è stato ben riprodotto.

        Men of the deep Waters

      [Quotation, 2ll.] By William Hope Hodgson, Author of “The Boats of the ‘Glen Carrig’,” “The House on the Borderland,” “The Night Land,” “Carnacki the Ghost Finder,” etc. London, Eveleigh Nash, 1914. Integral leaf publisher’s advertisements at end; pp.303+[i (blank)]+[2]; dark red fine rough buckram ruled blind on front cover, lettered black on front cover and spine; lower-edges uncut. Edges foxed, and some light foxing passim; otherwise a nice copy. This title not in Locke’s ‘Spectra’; Currey, p.243 listing two bindings: “red cloth lettered in gold on spine and front cover” and “pink cloth lettered in black on spine”. The present copy does not correspond to either, and would seem to be intermediate between the two. Eleven stories and two poems collected from periodicals in which they had appeared between 1906 and 1913. Several are fantasy or horror, and one or two give interesting glimpses into the origins of Hodgson’s novels: On the Bridge; The Sea Horses; The Derelict; My House shall be called The House of Prayer; From the Tideless Sea (two parts); The Captain of the Onion Boat; The Voice in the Night; Through the Vortex of a Cyclone; The Mystery of the Derelict; and The Shamraken Homeward-Bounder. The poems are The Song of the Great Bull Whale, and Grey Seas are Dreaming of my Death. In this copy the following errata and typographical flaws have been noted (state or issue significance, if any, undetermined): p.14, l.22, ‘i’ of ‘ice’ too heavy; p.170, l.4, ‘a’ of ‘lamp’ slightly dropped, l.6, ‘h’ of ‘hour’ too heavy; p.176, l.7, ‘moustrous’ for ‘monstrous’; p.191, l.21, ‘explained’ for ‘exclaimed’; p.198, l.25, ‘a’ of ‘reached’ too heavy; p.210, l.19, ‘i’ of ‘side’ too heavy; p.226, penultimate line, risen space after ‘This’; p.234, l.15, ‘o’ too heavy in ‘brought’. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Churchill on Ulster

      This extremely scarce wartime pamphlet reproduces Churchill's speech of 14 March 1914 at St. George's Hall, Bradford, when Churchill spoke on behalf of the British Government at the height of Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914. Churchill's family had supported unyielding British control over Ireland. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, won political victories through his support of the Unionists in Ulster. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule. In early 1912, Winston spoke in Belfast in favor of Home Rule - the same Belfast where his father, Lord Randolph, famously opposed Home Rule, declaring in 1886 "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right." Winston's 1912 reply: "Why cannot this great settlement be made? We have made friends with our enemies; can we not make friends with our comrades too?" This was a major and controversial event, involving extraordinary precautions to protect Churchill's physical safety from hostile crowds. The Home Rule crisis persisted into 1914. The crisis was of sufficient concern that on 13 March 1914 - the day before Churchill's speech - Prime Minister Asquith informed the King in some detail about the "military situation in Ulster" (then being investigated by a Cabinet committee of which Churchill was a member). Churchill was chosen to deliver a stern message to Ulster about the necessity for compromise and the consequences of rejecting it. Per Churchill bibliographer Martin Gilbert (Volume II, page 488), "The firm and measured tones in which Churchill spoke at Bradford had been approved in advance by Asquith" but the words were distinctly Churchillian, as was the eloquent and resolved gravity. The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free State Bill, which won passage in 1922. In 1943, during Churchill's wartime premiership, the Socialist Party saw fit to reproduce Churchill's 14 March 1914 speech. They republished "this prophetic speech of Mr. Churchill's as an answer to those who would have us believe that the British Government have no responsibility for the near-fascist state created by British Imperial Interests in Ireland." The pamphlet is bound in illustrated paper wraps, wire-stitched, 16 pages in length, and measures 7.25 x 5 inches. Churchill's speech fills pages 5-15. Condition of the pamphlet is very good given age and fragility. The covers remain complete and attached with no losses. The two original bindings staples remain firmly attached, with only minor corrosion. The covers are lightly soiled and bear a horizontal crease, where the pamphlet was once folded. The contents are clean and complete with no markings. This address was subsequently collected in Churchill's Complete Speeches, Volume III, at pp.2222-33, under the title "The Ulster Situation". Bibliographic reference: Cohen A178.

        Dubliners

      London: Grant Richards, (1914). Octavo. First edition. One of approximately 746 copies that were bound. When Joyce first submitted his proposal for this collection of short stories, he wrote, "I do not think that any writer has yet presented Dublin to the world." However, Joyce was far from sentimental about the city, writing, "From time to time I see in publisher's lists announcements of books on Irish subjects so that I think people might be willing to pay for the special odour of corruption which, I hope, floats over my stories." Bound in publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering on front cover and spine. Front free endpaper lacking. Faint waterstaining to bottom and top edges of pages, as well as top corner of rear pastedown, that does not affect the inside of the book. Top and bottom edges of spine slightly bumped, spine darkened with some slight rubbing, and faint rubbing to spine edges. Very small, shallow spot of biopredation to front board; still a very good copy of a scarce book. Bookplate of American diplomat and poet John Haven Ferguson.

        PLATERO Y YO, ELEGÍA ANDALUZA, con ilustraciones de Fernando Marco

      Ediciones ¿La lectura¿, Madrid 1914 - Primera edición en la colección ¿El libro escolar¿ y en la que JRJ colocó una breve advertencia dirigida ¿a los hombres que lean este libro para niños¿ en la que afirma que ¿estaba escrito para¿ ¡qué sé yo para quien! para quien escribimos los poetas líricos¿Ahora que va á los niños, no le quito ni le pongo una coma. ¡Qué bien!¿. Pero con aunque en 1914 no le ponía ni le quitaba una coma, tres años después, en 1917, publicó una segunda edición notablemente ampliada que fue la definitiva. Esta de 1914 constituye hoy una rareza bibliográfica. El ejemplar que ofrecemos está falto de la contraportada y exteriormente aparece algo fatigdo, aunque las páginas de texto permanecen limpias y enteras. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
