        Once a Week.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1914. Octavo. Original purple cloth, title and decoration to spine gilt, title to front board blind. Spine faded to white, covers faded and a little mottled. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. The dedication copy, inscribed by the author to his wife, Dorothy Milne (née de Sélincourt), on the front free endpaper, "My darling's private copy of her own book. A.A.M. October 1914". 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".

      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!).

        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.

        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.

Nach dem tiefen Einschnitt des ersten Weltkrieges, veränderte sich auch bei Schrammen die Bildthemen: das Werk verlagert sich auf Holzschnitte und Zeichnungen, in denen er das Erlebte verarbeitete. 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. Er absolvierte ein einjähriges Volontariat bei einem Weimarer Drechsler und erschloß sich damit eine neue künstlerische Ausrichtung ... (Zitat nach Versand D: 7,00 EUR Kunst, Bauhaus

        Das schmerzliche Meer. Frühe und neue Gedichte.

      Erste Ausgabe. - Eins von 100 nummerierten und vom Verfasser signierten Exemplaren davon erschienen 10 Exemplare auf Japanpapier mit einem Holzschnitt von Conrad Felixmüller in Ganzleder. - Rheiner kam 1914 als einer der Jüngsten in die exzentrische Gesellschaft des Cafés des Westens, wo er schnell Anschluss fand. Besonders engen Kontakt pflegte er dort mit Johannes R. Becher, der sich zu dieser Zeit durch Narkotika und vorgetäuschte Sucht dem Wehrdienst entzog. Diese Idee, wohl von Hardekopf kommend, sollte für Rheiner erfolglos bleiben und den Beginn seiner Abhängigkeit bedeuten. Gleichzeitig fasste er hier den Entschluss, sich als Dichter zu verdingen und so erschienen bereits im Folgejahr erste Arbeiten u.a. in Pfemferts ?Aktion?. Vom Dienst an der Front suspendiert und nach Berlin zurückgekehrt, verfiel Rheiner endgültig dem Lebensstil der Bohème und seiner Sucht. Die Vormittage verschlief er, die Nachmittage saß er die meiste Zeit im Romanischen Café, wo er bis in die Abendstunden blieb, um dann, heimgekehrt, des Nachts zu schreiben. Seine Texte fanden in den bedeutenden spätexpressionistischen Blättern Veröffentlichung. Überdies beteiligte sich Rheiner an der Gründung der ?Expressionistischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dresden?, worauf die Einrichtung des ?Dresdner Verlages von 1917? folgte, in dem, bis auf eine Ausnahme, alle seine selbstständigen Publikationen erschienen. Die letzten Jahre verbrachte er vereinsamt und vergessen an verschiedenen Orten, meist ohne feste Bleibe, bis er an einer Überdosis Morphium verstarb. (Vgl. Thomas Rietzschel. In: Walter Rheiner. Kokain. Lyrik, Prosa, Briefe. Leipzig 1985, S. 285-303.) - Einbandkanten stark berieben, Bll. teils stockfleckig. - Raabe/Hannich-B. 245. 3. - Jentsch 40.

        Through the Brazilian Wilderness.

      Charles Scribners Sons, New York 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.

        Photo Album]: Baltimore College Student's Travel on the East Coast, California, and Cuba

      Baltimore 1914 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12.5". Screw bound black leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 595 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 4.5" x 7", many with captions. Very good with wear on the board edges and a detached but present final page with near fine photographs.An album kept by Maryland native J. Theo Fritz in the early 1900s, showing travel on the East Coast, California, and Cuba. Fritz lived in Baltimore and attended Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, before attending Cornell University. He appears to have come from a family of some means and traveled extensive in the United States, with photos in this album of trips to Pennsylvania, Delaware, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana, as well as California and Cuba. The images all appear to have been taken between 1899 and 1912.Fritz was an avid photographer and member of the Baltimore Y.M.C.A. Camera Club who obviously enjoyed the natural beauty of Maryland. He and his family and friends spent a lot of time on the banks of the numerous waterways of Maryland with visits to Gwynns Falls, Gunpowder Falls, and Lake Royer with photos by the water, climbing rock faces, and boating in Royal Oak. There are also shots of various people playing baseball, tennis, and general conviviality, including a wonderful image of a smiling and obviously amused African-American man in a top hat with baseball equipment. A section of 10 photographs shows the city of Baltimore celebrating its Centennial with the city decorated and various buildings lit up.There are several sections of photos in New York State including New York City, Long Island, Albany, and Ithaca. Fritz attended Cornell University and there are a number of photos showing the university and the town of Ithaca. Fritz captures his dorm room, students studying and practicing the violin, along with his family and friends hiking, fishing, and canoeing. The images from New York City feature the Statue of Liberty, including a close up of her torch, as well as people walking on the then unfinished Williamsburg Bridge and at the newly opened Luna Park amusement park on Coney Island decorated with electric lights. One section has some lovely snapshots of Central Park as well as a boat trip on the Hudson River. Fritz and company visited Gettysburg, posing with cannons, and camping at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Included are images of young men in bathing costumes around their beach house, and of crashing waves on the shore. Fritz also visited Georgia and took photos of the "cotton industry" which included bailing and machinery, as well as photos of African-Americans working in the factories processing the cotton and in a chain gang wearing striped uniforms. The photos also show the Savannah River flood of 1912 with images of people standing on roofs and rowing small boats down city streets; one captures an African-American man carrying a white man on his back to avoid flood waters.Later sections include a trip to South Carolina with images of an early American aviation field, and a plane in midair. A New Orleans trip shows photos of St. Charles Avenue and Canal Street as well as riverboats on the Mississippi. Near the end Fritz documents a trip to Florida, including Tampa and Key West with a photo of a docked USS *Miami*, before heading to Cuba. There are numerous images of Havana Harbor, the coast, market places, tropical farms, banana groves, a Spanish cemetery, and even a shot of a baseball game being played at U.S. Naval base at Guantanamo Bay.An interesting assemblage of a young man's travels throughout the United States seen here through a massive amount of amateur snapshots of better than usual quality.
