See p. 71 Tolley below. * THE MISSION OF THE U.S. NAVY ON THE ASIATIC STATION: Protecting Americans in the Orient The Asiatic fleet has pursued its duties of protecting American lives and property in the Orient. When Vladivostok was thrown into disorder by the overthrow of the local government last January, the South Dakota and the Albany assisted in preserving order, and these vessels were stationed there during the evacuation of American troops from Siberia, where they had been engaged in protecting a portion of the Trans-Siberian Railway. In March Admiral Gleaves again visited Japan, his flagship returning in April to relieve the Albany, which engaged in target practice and established a summer base at Chefoo. * Asiatic Fleet Comprises 26 Vessels in 1920. The famous movie with Steve McQueen: THE SAND PEBBLES is a fine example of this time period and the kind of patrol and duty to protect Americans and missionaries through out coastal China including the river sanctuaries. * Yangtze Patrol Active Against River Pirates The Yangtze Patrol was reorganized last December, Capt. T.A. Kearney being placed in command. The Palos and Monocracy were active last spring in defending vessels from river pirates and lawless elements, who were holding up and looting steamers and junks, firing on passing craft. Our vessels aided materially in putting an end to this interference with traffic. On August 5, 1921, the Yangtze patrol force was organized under Rear Admiral W.H.G. Bullard, United States Navy, as part of the Asiatic Fleet. The mission of the Navy on the Yangtze River is to protect United States interests, lives and property, and to maintain and improve friendly relations with the Chinese people. * This has been done very effectively during the past year by a United States naval patrol consisting of the USS Isabel (flagship) and five gunboats, basing on Hankow, 700 miles from the mouth of the river. The force is now under the direct command of Rear Admiral W.W. Phelps, United States Navy. * The Yangtze River, the main artery of China, is navigable for 1,750 miles, floats about 59 per cent of China's commerce, and reaches over 50 per cent of its population of 159,000,000. * In 1920 the United States exports to China were valued at $119,000,000 and imports from there at $227,000,000. At least half of this, and probably more, were handled via the Yangtze River. Considering the perpetual banditry, piracy, and revolutionary conditions obtaining in this area, without the protection of our Navy this commerce would be practically nonexistent. * United States naval forces on the river are distributed over its entire length. In summer they are usually at Hankow and above. In winter some are locked up to the upper river with the deeper-draft craft in the lower river. Our forces cooperate with the British, taking turns at guarding certain points, each protecting the interest of the other. * The Asiatic Fleet, under command of Admiral Albert Gleaves, who, after his notable service as chief of the Cruiser and Transport Force, was assigned to this important duty, now comprises 26 vessels, including 8 destroyers * THE U.S.S. SARATOGA: Ship was built by William Cramp and Sons at Philadelphia. Laid down on September 19, 1890. Launched on The U.S.S. Saratoga, December 2, 1891 and commissioned on August 1, 1893 with Captain John Philip in command. * Officially designated as Armored Cruiser No. 2, began her career on December 2, 1891 when she was launched from a Philadelphia shipyard as USS New York. After serving as Admiral Sampson's flagship during the Spanish-American War, she steamed to Yokohama and became the US Navy flagship of the Asiatic Fleet. * World War I Service In February, 1911 she was formally renamed USS Saratoga [* see reference below for renaming several times]. During World War I she served with the Pacific Patrol Force, and in December, 1917 underwent yet another name change, becoming USS Rochester. Following service with the Atlantic Fleet and in the Caribbean, Rochester returned to Asiatic waters in June 1932 and served off the Yangtze River in China. * The following year she moved to Cavite, just outside Manila, and was officially decommissioned there on April 29, 1933. She was then towed to Subic Bay and moored off the Olongapo Naval Station, where she served for the next eight years as an auxiliary power plant and machine shop. Wartime Service In December, 1941, as Japanese forces approached Subic Bay, she moved by tug boats into Subic Bay and scuttled to prevent capture. **** WHO WAS HER COMMANDER in 1914 ? Cdr. Joseph Lee Jayne, was her commanding officer from 03/16/1910 -1917 when the command was changed to Capt. Arthur St. Clair Smith. [see http://www.navsource.org/archives/04/acr2/acr2.htm for more details.] * This ship was commissioned and decommissioned many times, and with each re-commission had a new name. See below reference site for these various incarnations. Renamed SARATOGA 16 FEB 1911 Decommissioned 6 FEB 1916 Commissioned 23 APR 1917 Renamed ROCHESTER 1 DEC 1917 Reclassified CA 2 in 1920 Decommissioned 29 APR 1933 Stricken 28 OCT 1938 Fate: Scuttled in DEC 1941 to prevent her capture by the Japanese. * Excellent early photos of this ship can be viewed at the below link, as well as a wealth of other information. * REFRERENCE: Tolley, Kemp.

A very good copy. First edition, first impression.

With Dorothy's illustrated bookplate to the front pastedown. This was the first of many of his books to be dedicated to his wife, referred to in the printed dedication as his collaborator, "who buys the ink and paper, laughs, and, in fact, does all the really difficult part of the business, this book is gratefully dedicated in memory of a winter's morning in Switzerland". The allusion to "a winter's morning in Switzerland" refers to their engagement while skiing in Switzerland in January 1913: "I proposed to her at eleven o'clock one morning in a snowstorm". This collection of comedic material was originally published in Punch, and was his third such collection. In its review of Once a Week the Times Literary Supplement argued that Milne "had one of the most engaging silly senses of humour in the world".

        Népszava

      Seidler Plakát és Cimkegyár, Budapest 1914 - Designed by Mihály Biró. Original, vintage poster. Chromolithograph. ca. 63,5 × 95 cm. Mihály Biró's striking poster, a scarce piece of the Népszava-series, the advertisement for the social-democrat newspaper with the iconic image of the "Red Man with Hammer". The image of the Red Man with Hammer as the logo of the social-democrat newspaper Népszava (People's Voice) was originally created in 1912 by Mihály Biró (1886-1948). Soon it appeared on poster: the figure superimposed on the image of a front page of the journal as an allusion to the content and the ideology of the "People's Voice". On the present, 1914 version, at the breakout of World War I, the arrangement is similar to the original poster, but here the giant Red Man with his enormous hammer is about to smite the Austro-Hungarian soldiers who chained him and threatening with their arms. Scarce poster, and an important image in the history of political propaganda. Artistically restored. In fine condition. Original, vintage poster. Chromolithograph. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Archive]: 18 Real Photo Postcards of the West Side Camping Club in Guard, Maryland

      West Side Camping Club, Guard, Maryland 1914 - 18 sepia-toned real photo postcards. Some modest fading to a few of the cards, a few have been mailed, overall near fine. A splendid group of photographs of a bunch of cheerful knuckleheads at a private hunting club in Guard, Maryland, where apparently, according to a 1914 Forest and Stream article, they specialized in hunting (and occasionally eating) groundhogs. The images feature about 20 prosperous but casually dressed white men in a tent encampment with a cook shed emblazoned with the letters W.S.C.C. and various semi-humorous signs, and manned by a black cook in white chef's outfit. In one image, one gentleman on the left pretends to play a frying pan like a banjo, while on the right another gentleman pretends to shave the neck of a sleeping man with a hand scythe, while the cook stands in the middle with knife and frying pan, looking not terribly amused. In other images the various men lounge around camp, and in a series of four images, a group of hunting dogs attack what appears to be a groundhog pelt. The few that are postmarked are postmarked in August of either 1913 or 1914, all from Guard, Maryland (about which we can find nothing!).

        North of Boston [Mending Wall]

      New York: David Nutt [sold by Dunster House], 1914. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine. A superlative copy of the poet's scarce second collection, the true first, published one year before the American edition. First Edition, 1914 (so stated on copyright page). Wide 8vo: ix,143,[1]pp. Wanting the original, unprinted wax paper dust jacket. Fine (many pages unopened), square and tight, with crisp gilt lettering; offsetting to end papers from binder's glue. Clymer & Green, pp. 22-26. Crane A3. Collects seventeen poems ("The Pasture" and "Good Hours" do not appear on the contents page), including Mending Wall and After Apple Picking.

At a later date, "Printed in Great Britain" was rubber-stamped in black on copyright page.

        Die unregelmässige Herztätigkeit.

      Leipzig, Verlag von Wilhelm Engelmann, 1914, 4, VI, 249 pp., 109 Abb., orignal geprägter Leinenband kleiner restaurierter Abriss am Titelblatt frisches Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe des bedeutenden Werk, das heute noch als Grundpfeiler der Arrhythmiediagnostik gilt." "In den Jahren 1898 bis 1901 veröffentlichte Wenckebach seine sphygmographischen Studien zur Analyse des unregelmäßigen Pulses und stellte anhand der Befunde ein Rhythmusschema zur Analyse des unregelmäßigen Pulses auf. Bereits 1898/99 hatten seine Studien zur Beschreibung der Extrasystolie und zur Entdeckung der Wenckebach-Periodik geführt, die eine besondere Form des partiellen atrioventrikulären Herzblockes darstellt und bei der das PQ-Intervall solange zunimmt, bis ein QRS-Komplex ausfällt". "In den Jahren 1906/07 beschrieb er in seinen Beiträgen zur Kenntnis der menschlichen Herztätigkeit das nach ihm benannte Wenckebach-Bündel, ein Internodalbündel, das vom oberen und hinteren Rand des Sinusknoten ausgeht, die Vena cava superior nach hinten umfaßt, den Sinus intercavernosus kreuzt und im Septum intercavernosum zum AV-Knoten zieht." "Sein Werk 'Die unregelmässige Herztätigkeit und ihre klinische Bedeutung' erschien 1914. In dieser Abhandlung, die zu einem Klassiker der rhythmologischen Literatur wurde, beschreibt Wenckebach die durch Zufall bei einem Patienten mit Vorhofflimmern gemachten Beobachtungen über die Wirksamkeit der antiarrhythmischen Substanz Chinin. Damit ist Wenckebach als Begründer der medikamentösen Arrhythmiebehandlung anzusehen." Berndt Lüderitz, Gesch. Herzrhythmustörungen, pp.62-65 Karel Frederik Wenckebach (1864-1940)"Wenckebach was the first to demonstrate (pp.173-175) the value of quinine in the treatment of paroxysmal fibrillation. The same work contains a number of excellent descriptions of various forms of cardiac arrhythmia." "As a result of his studies on the arrhythmias with the polygraph, Wenckebach had great influence on electrocardiography. He also was one of the first to suggest that the various disorders of the heartbeat which were produced in experimental animals were of the same nature as those observed clinically in man."G.E.Bruch & N.P. de Pasquale, A History of Electrocardiography, pp.83f.Garrison & Morton No.2844 Waller 10207

        Poems. Selected and Arranged by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson.

      Hammersmith: The Doves Press, 1914 - Octavo. Original pinkish-brown sealskin by the Doves Bindery, title to spine gilt, gilt compartments, single rule frame to covers gilt, all edges and turn-ins gilt. Spine slightly faded, internally fresh; an excellent copy. First Doves edition, one of a limited edition of 200 copies, 12 of which were on vellum. This copy is beautifully bound with understated elegance to a design by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery, reflecting the restrained style typical of the Doves Press, and is signed and dated "19 C-S 14". The slightly mottled appearance of the binding is characteristic of sealskin. "Cobden-Sanderson ordered sealskins from Richardson's in Newcastles. He apparently liked it, as seal was used as an alternative to goatskin for binding many other Doves Press books. The sealskin used ranges in colour from orange to brick-red or terracotta, and some of the skins were probably specially selected by Cobden Sanderson for their attractive blotchy appearance" (Tidcombe, p. 94). The book and binding were made just two years before Cobden-Sanderson threw the Doves typeface into the Thames, thus concluding the bitter dispute between him and his partner Emery Walker, and bringing the era of the Doves Press to a close. Ransom Private Presses p. 253. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Through the Brazilian Wilderness.

      New York: Charles Scribners Sons, 1914. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Illustrated from photographs taken by Kermit Roosevelt and other members of the expedition, frontispiece with tissue-guard; 3 maps, including 1 folding in the rear. Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Frederic A. Ames, a first-class American, with all good wishes, from Theodore Roosevelt June 14th 1918." The recipient, Frederic Ames was an early American automobile manufacturer in Owensboro, Kentucky, from 1910 to 1925. A beetle-backed "gentleman's roadster" and a five passenger tourer were the first models offered for sale by the company. The company also produced replacement bodies for the Ford Model T. At its peak the company produced approximately 30,000 vehicles. In near fine condition with light toning to the spine. One of the more difficult titles in the Roosevelt canon to find signed and inscribed, and with such a warm inscription. Roosevelt's popular book Through the Brazilian Wilderness describes his expedition into the Brazilian jungle in 1913 as a member of the Roosevelt-Rondon Scientific Expedition co-named after its leader, Brazilian explorer Candido Rondon. The book describes all of the scientific discovery, scenic tropical vistas and exotic flora, fauna and wild life experienced on the expedition, as well as the exciting human dramas which occurred during the expedition.

Er blieb in Weimar und unterhielt enge Kontakte zur 1906 gegründete Kunstgewerbeschule unter der Leitung von Henry van de Velde und setzte sich schließlich für die Gründung des Staatlichen Bauhauses ein. Am Bauhaus studierte er im Sommersemester 1919 Architektur, und ab 1921 in der Druckerei (unter Lyonel Feiningers) sowie in der Bühnenwerkstatt von Lothar Schreyer.
