        NORTH OF BOSTON

      London: David Nutt (1914). 1st edition, 1st printing in original green binding with gilt lettering on cover and spine. Originally published in a printing of only 1000 copies by the firm of David Nutt in London while Frost and his family were living in England. The title did not appear in America until Henry Holt published the US edition in 1915. The original Nutt copies were variously bound in green and blue cloth. The present copy, distinguished by Crane as binding "F" featuring the blind rule along upper and lower edge, is one of only 200 thus bound. Crane further states: "Similarities of cloth and gilt-stamping in binding A and bindings E and F indicate that the work was done by the same binder in England before the later copies were sent to America" (Crane A3). The author's second major collection of poetry, which publishes many of the poems he is most noted for, including: "Mending Wall", "The Pasture", "After Apple-Picking", and others. The present copy we are offering is uncommonly bright and fine, and housed in a custom green cloth archival box.

        Fritz Lang: Two Autograph Letters Signed, including the earliest known

      N.p.: N.p., 1914. Two autograph letters signed by Fritz Lang to Friedl Weiss-Nerley, the first dated Oct. 21, 1913, making it the earliest Lang letter known, preceding even the 1914 letter to Julius Singer noted in Patrick McGilligan's definitive biography of Lang, "Fritz Lang: The Nature of the Beast."& & At the time of the letters, Lang was pursuing a career as a visual artist and supporting himself by painting posters, postcards, and other material, and had been asked by Weiss-Nerley to provide illustrations to a book he was writing titled "Genesis." The letters cover in detail Lang's philosophical and personal preferences regarding the book and his reflections on the artistic process, and demonstrate an early focus on what would become some of his dominant themes as a filmmaker, including eroticism, historical and mythological characters, and religion.& & The first letter, dated October 20, 1913, details Lang's reaction to the first chapter of "Genesis." In the letter, Lang offers some criticism of the both the prose and the apparently pornographic nature of the work, details some of this working process, and concludes by discussing his need for payment in advance.& & The second letter begins by noting an address in Vienna at which he hopes Weiss-Nerley will visit him over Christmas, followed by an account of a breakup between Lang and a pair of women apparently known to both men. He then turns again to the artwork for the book, with a strong emphasis on the nature of the erotic nudes he is being asked to draw, as well as the historic, mythic, and religious setting of the piece, demonstrating a detailed knowledge of the ancient world. Finally, the letter concludes with a business proposal to split any proceeds on a 50/50 basis, as opposed to the 10% Weiss-Nerley has apparently offered. The letter is undated, but was presumably written within a year or so of the first.& & First letter: Single leaf, 9 x 13.5 inches, writing on both recto and verso. Near Fine, folded twice for mailing, with accompanying mailing envelope, postmarked October 21, 1913 and stamped Fritz Lang - Atelier [Gallery]. Envelope Very Good, with opened corner missing. Text in German, with rough translation provided.& & Second letter: Four leaves, 9 x 13.5 inches, with writing on both rectos and versos, excepting the fourth leaf, which is recto only. Near Fine, folded twice for mailing, with accompanying mailing envelope without postmark. Envelope Very Good, with opened corner missing. Text in German, with rough translation provided.& & McGilligan, p. 30.

        DUBLINERS

      (London: Grant Richards, 1914. FIRST EDITION. One of 746 copies printed for Richards (504 copies were printed for Huebsch in America, for a total of 1,250). Hardcover. 184 x 127 mm (7 1/4 x 5"). 278 pp. FIRST EDITION. One of 746 copies printed for Richards (504 copies were printed for Huebsch in America, for a total of 1,250). Original dark red cloth, gilt lettering on spine and front cover. In a recent maroon cloth folding box. Slocum and Cahoon A-8. Spine faintly and uniformly darkened (covers with a hint of fading at edges), barely perceptible cocking to the binding, a small dent to fore edge of front board (and one even smaller at bottom edge), perhaps two dozen pages with a dot of foxing, but an excellent copy of a book difficult to find in fine condition, clean and fresh inside and out. This is an excellent copy of Joyce's first work of fiction, comprising 15 short works, including most notably the title story, "The Dead," and "Araby." The collection was initially submitted to Richards in 1905, after which two attempts to publish it were thwarted by censorship before our first edition appeared in 1914. According to Day, Joyce "intended 'to betray the soul of that hemiplegia or paralysis which many consider a city'; the paralysis is intellectual, moral, and spiritual." The work "is militantly opposed to the contemporary Celtic Renaissance. To the dreamy or patriotic effusions of his fellow Irishmen, Joyce countered with uncompromising depictions of the Irish decay, banality, and tawdriness.".

He developed a spineless cactus (useful for cattle-feed) and the plumcot. Burbank's most successful strains and varieties include the Shasta daisy, the Fire poppy, the July Elberta peach, the Santa Rosa plum, the Flaming Gold nectarine, the Wickson plum, the Freestone peach, and the white blackberry. A natural genetic variant of the Burbank potato with russet-colored skin later became known as the Russet Burbank potato. This large, brown-skinned, white-fleshed potato has become the world's predominant potato in food processing.

        London

      London: privately printed for Alvin Langdon Cobrn and Edmund D. Brooks & Their Friends,, 1914. With Ten Photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn. Octavo. Original linen-backed boards, grey paper sides, titles to spine and front board in black. 10 mounted photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn. Later gift inscription. Spine tanned, corners rubbed, covers with some mild marks, endpapers tanned, light offsetting from plates, one of the mounts a bit stained; overall a very good copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by Coburn on the front free endpaper, "To Charlie W. Hobson, in appreciation of pleasant days in Manchester from Alvin Langdon Coburn. May 15th 1919." Charles W. Hobson was a Manchester publisher with whom Coburn worked on his studies of industry in northern England, Cotton Waste: A Study of a Great Lancashire Industry (1920), and A Study in Storage (c.1920). Coburn also took a portrait photograph of Hobson, which is held at George Eastman House. Chesterton's introductory text offers an explanation for the expertise of Coburn's quietly resonant and curiously angled images of London's landmarks: "the spectator is a serious mystic (that is, a materialist also) and appreciates the bodily beauty of heights, which should always be seen from below. The Devil takes us to the top of an exceeding high mountain, and makes us dizzy: but God lets us look at the mountain. Yet this mountain made by man can only be seen in London by "sighting;" by getting it between two houses, as a pilot steers between two rocks. Get the sighting wrong and you will see only a public-house, or (what is much worse) a shop full of newspapers.

      The World: Leonard and Ada Van Noppen, [N. D.]. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. The original Travel and Signature Diary of Leonard Van Noppen and his wife Adah Van Noppen, bound in the Diary's original vellum. Leonard Charles Van Noppen was a Dutch-born, American-educated, academic and Professor at Columbia University, translator, and Poet, who also served as an American Naval Attache at the Hague and who, as a member of the United States Naval Reserves authored "The Challenge: War Chants of the Allies, Wise and Otherwise". Some of his Poems, along with those of Rudyard Kipling, John Galsworthy, Edith Wharton, G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Henry Van Dyke, Robert Bridges, Thomas Hardy, John Masefield, and others, were Anthologized in "A Treasury of War Poetry: British and American Poems of the World War, 1914—1919". Van Noppen is also noted for his translation of Joost van den Vondel's "Lucifer" into English. Van Noppen and his wife, Adah (who was associated with the Universal Order, a mystical cult), traveled the world and met numerous Literary and Political figures, many of which have signed this Diary, often with inscriptions of various natures. The many signatures and entries include the following: F. Scott Fitzgerald (signed "June 1936 / Scott Fitzgerald"), Willa Cather, Kahlil Gibran ( who wrote "and now let us sing altogether", followed by his signature), Francis Grierson (pen name of Benjamin Henry Jesse Francis Shepard) the author, composer, pianist, and spiritualist, who declared himself to be "...a world famous mystic, seer, inspirational musician, and authority on prophecies, visions, and cosmic consciousness", whose audiences often included Royalty, and who claimed that, in his performances, he channeled famous composers then deceased, Edwin Markham (who signed twice, once under his inscription "We sell our eyes for candles! /Edwin Markham / Oct. 1927") and his wife Catherine, herself a noted children's author and lecturer on child labor and social reforms, Emilie Lind-af-Hageby, a Swedish countess, feminist, and animal rights activist who founded the Animal Defence and Anti-Vivisection Society and who served as President of the London Spiritualist Alliance and who co-authored "The Shambles of Science" which led to England's "Brown Dog" affair, Jessie B. Rittenhouse, spiritualist, poet and editor of Poetry Anthologies, Max Weber, Benoy Kumar Sar Kar - an Indian author, Nationalist, and close friend of Mahatma Gandhi, Sarojini Naidu -- a leader of India's Congress Party who was arrested with Mohandas Gandhi, Eugene Higgins - the American Socialist, Painter, and printmaker, Kathryn White Ryan - who signed under her autograph poem "The Turquoise Bowl", Fashion Designer and Poet Mary Cummings Eudy - who signed under her autograph poem "I Believe", George Grey Bernard, Anatole France, Charles Elkins Matthews, Aldous Huxley who signed beneath his "with good wishes", Alma Reed, E. B. White, as well as a pasted-in card signed by James Thurber, Sherwood Anderson, John O'Hara, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Dorothy Parker. The Diary contains many other signatures, many of which we have not yet researched and many of which have been researched and identified, and comes with a document noting the Diary's many entries and information about many of the signers. The Diary is in Very Good condition, with a large yawn due to the shrinking of the vellum, and with some toning to the pages, one of which is partially loose but holding firmly. Numerous items gathered by the Van Noppens are loosely laid in. Altogether A REMARKABLE GATHERING OF SIGNATURES AND INSCRIPTIONS FROM MANY NOTABLE PERSONS IN ART, LITERATURE, POLITICS, AND SPIRITUALISM. RARE.

        THE NOVELS AND LETTERS

      New York and Philadelphia: Frank S. Holby, 1914. Hampshire Edition. Limited to 1,250 numbered and registered copies (our copy not numbered). Hardcover. 222 x 152 mm (8 3/4 x 6"). 12 volumes. Hampshire Edition. Limited to 1,250 numbered and registered copies (our copy not numbered). Quite pleasing recent tan crushed half morocco over marbled boards, raised bands, spines with blind wave rule at top and bottom, spine panels with double gilt rules and central gilt fleuron, red and green labels, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. Letter volumes unopened. With colored illustrations by C. E. and H. M. Brock, and facsimiles of autograph letters. One leaf with two-inch marginal tear (likely from rough opening), otherwise only the most trivial imperfections: A VERY FINE SET, much of it obviously unread, in unworn bindings. In addition to Austen's six novels, this set contains her delightful letters, many of them written to her sister, Cassandra, the dearest companion of her life. Their relationship was sympathetically portrayed in Jane's fiction, where the bonds of sisterhood sustain Eleanor and Marianne Dashwood ("Sense and Sensibility") and Elizabeth and Jane Bennett ("Pride and Prejudice") through all manner of trouble. According to DNB, the two sisters chose spinsterhood because it was preferable to "remain unmarried and together" rather than marry and live apart. One of the most beloved of all English novelists, Jane Austen (1775-1817) was also one of the most influential, and narrative and cinematic adaptations based on or inspired by hers are still making the bestseller lists and filling movie theatres. A clergyman's daughter who mostly lived a quiet life in Hampshire and later in Bath, she nevertheless managed to produce comedies of manners that are still noted for their accurate and acerbic observations on human relations. Austen was admired by critics in her own time, with Scott, Macaulay, and George Lewes being among her enthusiastic supporters. According to Shattock, Scott praised her "exquisite touch which renders ordinary common-place things and characters interesting." Her novels continued to draw admirers even among harsh 20th century critics, with Virginia Woolf declaring her "one of the most consistent satirists in the whole of literature." The illustrations here, as in the previous item, are by the brothers Charles Edmond Brock (1870-1938) and Henry Matthew Brock (1875-1960), prolific book illustrators who specialized in period pieces like the works of Austen, Goldsmith, and Defoe.

On the 21st October 1915 the writer gives a vivid account of the bombardment of the Bulgarian coast at Dedeagatch.The journal ends abruptly on 29th July 1916; remainder of volume blank. Fully written up on 182-pages 4to (10½ x 8¼ inches), circa 30,000 words;with, at end, a further 32-page résumé of part of the journal (15th December 1914 - 11th March 1915 only) under the heading: "Three Months on the Syrian Coast";a slightly edited version of this résumé appeared anonymously in the "Naval Review" (1915, issue 4, pages 621-637). Also a further 11-pages, being a list of ships engaged in the action. 4to, contemporary maroon cloth over green grained cloth boards; edge rubbed. 1st August 1914 - 29th July 1916. The following quote will give an idea of content. For a full description with further transcripts, please enquire."April 26th 1915: 5am received orders to steam at full speed to Anzac and give assistance in covering troops landing, at 7am we could hear heavy gun fire in the distance, 8am we arrived and found that the troops were landing rapidly under a heavy fire. The battleships and cruisers were in one line about 1500 yds from the shore, a balloon was directing fire for the ships and seaplanes were also making flights, the warships were giving the Turks some terrific shrapnel fire, about 9am our troops had gained the right edge of Kaba Tepe heights and also had field guns in position but we could give no assistance only stay on deck and watch the battle, of which we had a splendid view, reinforcements were still landing with stores etc. and boats were bringing off wounded rapidly luckily up to now are troops not getting worried by gun fire much, about 10.30am the ships opened fire very heavy on a Turkish Battery which were now shelling our troops, all the afternoon the same thing happened, all you could hear was a murderous fire everywhere. 6pm our troops seemed to have gained a good foothold, 7.30 pm darkness started to set in, making the firing, with the shrapnel burst look like a firework display (but only at a distance). 8.30pm darkness was now settled, and the battle seemed to of died down, excepting a few attacks which were very short".

        Automobile nel deserto.

      Mabileau & Co. 1914 Pochoir con ritocchi a mano di mm 415x865 su foglio di mm 440x885. Marguerite Montaut (che sovente utilizzò il soprannome Gamy) assieme al marito Ernest, si dedicò nella produzione di tavole illustranti i più svariati eventi della prima apparizione del motore in gare di motoscafi, motocicli, automobili e dirigibili. Gamy si specializzò in particolar modo nella composizione di soggetti di velivoli, spesso rappresentandoli nei loro primi voli significativi. Il complesso processo di colorazione delle litografie impegnò una numerosa squadra di artisti di alto livello, che contribuì all'enorme successo che le opere dei coniugi Montaut ebbero in tutta l'Europa contemporanea, affascinata dalla nascita e dalla veloce evoluzione che ebbe il motore nei suoi primi anni di vita. Bell'esemplare, finemente colorato.

"The testimony and documents submitted point to the fact that, immediately after the war of 1812 the Canadian Cayugas were led to believe that they had forfeited their claims under the Treaty of 1795 by reason of their hostility to the United States. Captain John Norton, an adopted Mohawk chief, so understood in December, 1815, and there is evidence that, on several occasions during the ensuing years, the Cayugas were informed by the authorities of the State of New York or by the United States Indian agent, that they had forfeited their rights." , page 32, Section 3 of Vol I: "The letter of Captain John Norton of 1st December, 1815, which is invoked by the Answer as a presentment of the claim for such interposition, was not written with, or understood as having, any such intention or object."
