        Tactique des Torpilleurs d'Escadre

      [Paris: État-Major Général [de la Marine Nationale],, 1914. Quarto (272 × 203 mm). Contemporary purple skiver-backed marbled boards, marbled endpapers. 11 plates, numerous illustrative diagrams mounted in the text, tables. Chapters tagged with artificial vellum index tags. Spine discoloured and a little chipped, boards slightly rubbed, contents lightly toned but very good. First edition, designated Confidential and subsequently reclassified as Secret in manuscript, no other copy traced. A detailed handbook of French destroyer tactics which had currency throughout the First World War, corrections of January 1917 and March 1922 noted at the "Fiche des Corrections", and added to the text in red ink. That this was a practical manual rather than a classroom text is indicated by the instructions, not followed in this case, that it should be bound in a double cover of sail cloth with a pocket to each cover to take a lead plate "afin d'assurer la submersion du livre" in the case of shipwreck or "accident." A remarkable document.

      Indianapolis: Bobbs, Merrill, 1914. MacGrath, Harold. THE ADVENTURES OF KATHLYN. Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, (1914). First Edition, preceding all others, and one of the most important photoplay editions ever produced in terms of historical significance: The Kathlyn Williams Deluxe Edition, limited to 100 copies of which this is #55. It has been signed by the entire creative team for the 1913 film (serial drama) which invented the "Cliffhanger," a plot device which remains one of the most important structural innovations in the history of cinematic story-telling. Signed by Harold MacGrath (author). William Nicholas aka W. N. Selig (Producer) and Francis J. Grandon (director). Also signed by Kathlyn Williams (the star) and co-stars Charles Clary, Thomas Santschi, and Gilson Willets. Virtually a who's who of silent cinema. Before producer Grandin's death in 1929, he had directed 111 films. MacGrath was a prolific novelist and was the first author to conceive of the notion of releasing a book in tandem with a film. W. N. Selig's Polyscope Company produced over one THOUSAND films and was honored with his Hollywood Walk of Fame star as one of the most important pioneers of cinema. Kathlyn Williams was a blonde beauty who appeared in 175 silent films. This edition was produced in a special roan leather binding with gilt lettering, top edge gilt, and 16 gorgeous tipped-in full page illustrations from the film. Although our copy has chipping to the tip of the spine and general edge-wear, it is otherwise in excellent condition and the contents (including stills) remain fresh and bright. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Good.

        The Viceregal Visit to Jodhpur

      Bombay: Vernon & Co., , 1914. Landscape folio (490 × 375 mm) red morocco album, elaborately gilt on the upper board with title as above, the arms of the Marwar Durbar, or Darbar, the regional administrative body of Jodhpur; and the Star of India, all within ornate panelling with scrolled foliate corner pieces, the panelling repeated on the lower board. Around 85 silver gelatin prints, various formats up to 365 × 280 mm, mounted on card leaves, two panoramas - a three-part view of the city, and a two-part view of the crowds outside the city awaiting the Viceroy's arrival. All tissue-guarded, the guards having the studio's blind-stamps. Just a little rubbed externally, but a very handsome piece in excellent state of preservation. Superb album commemorating the visit of Sir Charles Hardinge, 1st Baron Hardinge of Penshurst, Viceroy of India 1910-16, to Jodhpur in 1914. The album contains an excellent range of views and portraits, including a fine studio portrait of the young Maharaja Sumer Singh; formal group portraits with the viceroy, Lady Hardinge and Sir Pratap Singh; views of the palace, Mehrangarh Fort, troop reviews, and the inauguration of the Powlett Nobles' and Elgin Rajput School by the viceroy and his wife. Hardinge's tenure was one of significant achievements: the visit of King-Emperor George V for the Delhi durbar of 1911, and the transfer of the capital from Calcutta to New Delhi in 1912. Although his handling of Indian troops in World War I has been criticised, and he was also the subject of several assassination attempts by Indian nationalists, overall his viceroyalty was marked by an amelioration of relations between the British administrators and the Indians.

Hardcover; Undefined language; No jacket; a fair reading copy; VERY SCARCE BOOK IN ESPERANTO WITH GREAT HISTORICAL INTEREST; this volume was in the personal library of KARL MINOR (who published an Esperanto-German dictionary in 1924) - his Ex Libris label on front paste-down; some bumping and wear to boards and scuffing on spine; pages are clean with no writing or highlighting, edges browning with age; seemingly this was to be performed at the (August) 1914 World Congress of Esperanto in Paris, which was forced to disperse as it was about to begin, as the Great War erupted and Esperantists from across the world scrambled to get back to their homelands before such border-crossings became impossible.

        MOTHER EARTH: VOL. XI, NO. 6, AUGUST 1914 - WITH A COVER BY MAN RAY

      (MAN RAY) (MOTHER EARTH). Goldman, Emma & Alexander Berkman, Editors. MOTHER EARTH: VOL. XI, NO. 6, AUGUST 1914 - WITH A COVER BY MAN RAY. New York: Mother Earth Publishing Association, 1914. First Edition. 8vo. Stapled Illustrated Wrappers. Periodical. Good. 32pp, printed by letterpress, no illustrations. Cover by Man Ray. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Mother Earth" was legendary New York-based leftist Emma Goldman's "monthly magazine devoted to Social Science and Literature". This August 1914 issue is important for its use of a drawing by the then-twenty-four year old Man Ray to illustrate the cover - one year prior to his first one man exhibition. Predating his self-published "Ridgefield Gazook" of 1915, this may very well be the first appearance of the work of the renowned Dada and Surrealist pioneer in print. It depicts the body of "Humanity" being grasped and torn between the twin-headed beast of "Government" and "Capitalism", in keeping with the magazine's labor-supportive editorial stance. The other contributors to the issue are Goldman herself, Adolf Wolff, Charles A. Breckenridge, Gustav Herve, Enrico Malatesta, Alexander Berkman, Leonard D. Abbott, Perry E. McCullough, and Charles T. Sprading. A most presentable copy of this exceedingly uncommon item showing overall light age-toning, wear and handling, a slight dent through the textblock at lower foredge corner, and some chipping with a tiny bit of paper loss to its brittle, highly-acidic wrappers. In addition, it bears the vintage stamp of San Francisco's Book Omnorium in black ink on the front cover. Still in all, this is a sound, age-appropriate example of this little-known American proto-Modernist document that looks much nicer in hand than it describes. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Typed letter signed.

      New York, 16. III. 1914. - Large 4to. 1½ pp. on 2 ff. On headed paper. To John Henderson, Secretary of the National Liberal Club: "I find that the Whitsuntide Holidays will be on when we arrive in London, via Plymouth, Saturday the thirtieth of May, and that Parliament will not assemble until the tenth of June. Because of this I had concluded you would not desire to hav[e] the address delivered until the holidays were over, but on re-reading your letter this morning it shows that you accept for the beginning of June. I hav[e] accepted two other banquet engagements in London early in June: one to attend the Annual Dinner of the Aberdeen University Club, of which University I am Lord Rector, and the other dinner in honor of the veteran of the House, Thomas Burt, who has had a wonderful career. I could not do otherwise than accept this, feeling as I do about him. The question is, would it be more desirable to you to hav[e] me make the address after Parliament meets, or do you prefer to hav[e] the address made the first, second or third of June? In the former case I would go direct to Skibo, and return to keep the three engagements named [.]".

        Home Rule for Ireland

      England, ca. 1914. (IRELAND) Original oil painting on canvas, unsigned, with caricatures of Asquith, John Redmond and Lloyd George, 19 1/2 x 30 inches, framed in gilt to 22 1/2 x 32 1/2 inches overall. Fine condition. Roy Jenkins, Asquith, pp. 174-5, et seq . A British political comment on the issue of Home Rule for Ireland. Amid celestial clouds a Union Jack-garbed figure of H.H. Asquith turns a grindstone on which a gleeful John Redmond in satanic wings sharpens a sword lettered "HOME RULE" as an angelic David Lloyd George flies away carrying by the coattails a small Irishman, shillelagh in hand. Prime Minister Asquith introduced the Third Home Rule for Ireland Bill to the Commons in 1912, in part to oblige the Irish, on which his Liberal ministry depended. Redmond, leader of the Irish Nationalists, established a balance of power favorable to the Irish and passage of the bill seemed assured. Lloyd George, (then Chancellor of the Exchequer), aware of the heavily pro-English sentiment of Northern Ireland, and of the political dangers of forcing unwilling Protestants under Catholic rule, induced the parties to exempt Ulster from the provisions of the bill, which finally passed in this form. This painting reflects the situation in early 1914: Redmond, with the aid of Asquith, prepares to sever Ireland from the mother country, while Lloyd George symbolically carries the pugnacious Catholic faithful away from the Protestant sanctuary of the North. It is, possibly, the original of a Conservative Party political poster. A UNIQUE PIECE OF POLITICAL PROPAGANDA IN THE HIGHLY UNUSUAL MEDIUM OF OILS

        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".

A fine copy in the very scarce dust jacket (jacket slightly chipped at top and bottom of spine).In the first edition of 1899, the plates, with the exception of the frontispiece, are in black and white, and the title page thus lacks the credit to W. Cubitt Cooke. Both Latimore & Haskell and Riall note binding in red or green cloth but not blue, as here.The half-title reads: Tales for Children from Many Lands Edited by F.C. Tilney."The Ingoldsby Legends commission [by Dent] was soon followed by another from Dent, for the eleven illustrations to Harriet Martineau&#39;s Feats on the Fjord. To be quite sure of getting the detail in the Norwegian costumes right, Rackham sought the advice of Dr. Hans Reusch, the friend he had made in Norway the year before" (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham: A Biography, pp. 50-51).Colorist William Cubitt Cooke was a friend of Rackham&#39;s, a fellow member of the Langham Sketching Club, a group organized by The Artist&#39;s Society, meeting at its London headquarters each Friday evening from October through May.Latimore and Haskell, p. 43.

        Churchill Ou le Courage, specially printed author's copy owned by Churchill's Aunt

      Here is a definitively unique and very special double association copy - the author Princess Bibesco's personal copy, printed specially for her by the publisher and given to her close friend, Winston Churchill's "favorite aunt" Leonie Jerome Leslie. "Churchill Ou le Courage" (published in English as "Sir Winston Churchill: Master of Courage") was authored by Churchill's longtime friend, the influential and colorful Romanian Princess Marthe Bibesco. Bibesco first met Churchill in April 1914 at a dinner party with French politicians on the eve of the First World War. They would become and remain friends until Churchill's death more than half a century later. Bibesco was highly educated, beautiful, exotic, engaging, and a prolific author. She spent her long life moving comfortably in the circles of Europe's royal, political, social, and intellectual elite. She was friend, confidante, and sometimes intimate of European monarchs and prime ministers. She knew not only Winston Churchill, but also members of his family, counting among her more intimate friends Churchill's aunt, Leonie Jerome (who would become Lady Leslie). Leonie Jerome Leslie was the youngest of the three Jerome sisters, with Churchill's mother Jennie being the eldest. Churchill maintained a lifelong relationship with his favorite aunt, growing especially close to her after his mother's death. Leonie would live to see her nephew in his finest hour, dying at the age of 78 during the war in 1943. In 1956, Bibesco turned her literary attention to her longtime friend. "Winston S. Churchill: Master of Courage" was first published in France. Here is an extraordinary copy. This is Princess Bibesco's personal copy, specifically printed for her by the publisher and then given as a gift to Lady Leonie Jerome Leslie and bearing her personal bookplate. As explicitly stated on the copyright page, two copies only were produced on Van Gelder paper (an expensive, high quality, hand made imported etching stock. It is a thick, heavy paper made in Holland. It has an ivory tonality with a soft, textured surface.) Also per the copyright page, this particular copy was "printed especially for S.A. [Sa Altesse (Her Highness)] Princess Bibesco of the Belgian Royal Academy". The ffep bears the decorative bookplate of Leonie Leslie. Inked directly below the bookplate are the words "Ex-libris de Lady Leslie née Leonie Jerome". Below that inscription is inked (in French) "Sent by Seymour Leslie your son, Palm Sunday 1956." Seymour Leslie was the third son of Leonie. For many years, it was standard practice in Europe - and particularly in France - to issue books in card covers with the expectation that the purchaser would have them bound in their preferred style. The sheets would be simply folded and bound, without edge trimming. Even given this tradition, this copy printed by the publisher for the author is clearly a flatteringly extravagant production. The Van Gelder paper is untrimmed with large, but regular, variations in the folding of the signatures, so that the untrimmed page edges present an unusual and highly distinctive appearance. Moreover, the sheets remain uncut. The Van Gelder paper lives up its reputation, remaining absolutely bright and beautiful, with a lovely appearance and texture. Spotting is confined to the untrimmed page edges and card covers, with no spotting present in the core printed contents. There is some wrinkling to the extreme corners of the largest untrimmed page edges, particularly at the lower corner. The original card stock binding is fully intact with no losses. There is light spotting to the front cover, heavier spotting to the blank rear cover, some wrinkling at the bottom of the spine, and a one inch tear at the bottom of the rear hinge. The spine is sun-toned, but all printed lettering is still legible. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A178.

        Nachrichten von der Amerikanische Halbinsel Californien: mit einem zweyfachen Anhang falscher Nachrichten. Geschrieben von einem Priester der Gesellschaft Jesu, welcher lang darinn diese letztere Jahr gelebt hat.

      - De Backer & Sommervogel I, col. 760; Cowan, 1914, p. 9; JCB 1817; Sabin 4363; Wagner, Spanish Southwest 157. First edition of a rare Americanum. Jakob Baegert (1717-1772), a German Jesuit, wrote an interesting and by no means glowing account of the natives and the country "California" (the Baja Peninsula). Cowan comments in his note that, "according to his accounts the country was absolutely unfit for habitation; it was inhabited by wild and ferocious beasts; peopled by cruel and inhospitable savages; water was unfit to use; wood was scarce; the soil would not sustain life". It was written to disabuse the public mind as to the rumoured mineral riches and pearls from California, which had spread from Mexico to Madrid, and Germany. The book is nonetheless filled with valuable ethnographical and historical information. Chapter 20 is devoted to the Waicuri language of the California Indians. The map shows the location of the many Jesuit missions in the Baja, and shows Baegert's route along the west coast of Mexico in 1751 and his return route in 1768, after the expulsion of the Jesuits.
