HORSBURGH, E. M. [Ellice Martin] (1870-1935) (ed.):
Edinburgh: Royal Society, 1914. FIRST EDITION. vii [1], 343 [13]pp. 7 plates, text illustrations. Contemporary ¾-leather. Very Good. Origins of Cyberspace 322. The Handbook was published in two forms: a softcover version [offered here], presented to those who registered for the exhibition; and a hardcover version issued for sale under the title Modern Instruments and Methods of Calculation. Relatively few copies of the softcover version seem to have been distributed at the exhibition, partly because the exhibition took place in Edinburgh, but mainly because war broke out just after it began. Most copies were bound in cloth and sold in London. The Napier tercentenary celebration, marking the three hundredth anniversary of the publication of Napier's Mirifici logarithmorum canonis descriptio (1614), was held in Edinburgh from July 24 to July 27, 1914-just five days before the start of World War I. Participants in the exhibition included individuals and companies from Scotland, England, France, and Germany The meeting was intended to include a colloquium on the mathematics of computation, but that was canceled because war was considered imminent. A celebration of Napier's pivotal role in the history of calculation, the exhibition featured displays of many different types of calculating machines, as well as exhibits of other aids to calculation such as mathematical tables, the abacus and slide rules, planimeters and other integrating devices, and ruled papers and nomograms. These are described in the Handbook to the exhibition, which contains separate sections, with chapters by … [Click Below for Full Description]

Douglas, George M.
G. P. Putnam’s Sons (Knickerbocker Press): New York, 1914. First edition (xv, 285, append.). Colour frontis of the author from a painting by Grier and 182 b&w photo illustrations mostly in text, two maps at rear. Large octavo (23 cm), in dark blue cloth, gilt lettering to titles, t.e.g. From the collection and with the signature of Douglas’ cousin, Lewis W. Douglas (1894- 1974), Democrat politician under Roosevelt, ambassador to Great Britain, and business executive (‘L. W. Douglas/ New York 1924’) and, later, from that of Francis Campbell Bell, once Manitoba’s minister of mines, who has copied out Douglas’ obituary notice and placed it in an envelope at the rear. Also included, separately, an offprint of the article ‘The Copper Bearing Traps of the Coppermine River’ (Ottawa 1913) by [Dr.] James Douglas, L. W.’s grandfather, (1837- 1918), mining engineer and president of the mining company Phelps Dodge, which consists largely of August Sandburg’s report of the geological findings of the expedition. Originally from Lakefield, Ontario, George Mellis Douglas (1875- 1963) was an engineer chiefly employed in the copper mining industry in the U. S. southwest. He set out in company with his brother Lionel (‘Lion’) and the geologist August Sandburg to visit the Coppermine River country in the Canadian arctic with half a mind to locate copper deposits in the area, the presence of which was suggested by tools and decorative objects worked in copper by people of the Western Arctic. Much of expedition’s success was due to the travellers’ skill with small boats and, according to Douglas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schiele, Egon. (1890-1918)
Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph letter from the important Austrian painter known for his intense, expressionist and often controversial works, to a Dr. Scheu (apparently the lawyer Dr. Jakob Scheu), regarding the repayment of a debt. May 7, 1914. Translated from the German, in part: "Dear Dr. Scheu, it is quite impossible at the moment for me to pay the whole debt of 247K for Mr. Holub; however, the week after next I will be able to pay a part, and I hope in the course of this month the rest. Best wishes, Egon Schiele." 1 p. of a bifolium on orange paper. Light creases; overall in fine condition. 6 x 8 inches (15.1 x 20.2 cm). Unpublished, not in Nebehay.Â1914 found Schiele enjoying success for the first time outside of Austria-Hungary, exhibiting in Rome, Brussels, and Paris, and beginning to learn the art of engraving from Robert Philippi and with the support of Arthur Roessler. It was also in 1914 that he first encountered Edith Harms, daughter of a master locksmith whose house was across the street from his studio, whom he would marry in 1915.ÂHowever, it was also a time of financial turmoil for Schiele. In January he exhibited in the Reininghaus Competition, and must have been disappointed not to win the prize of 3,000 kronen. Many of his letters from early 1914 find him making desperate attempts to sell paintings, while negotiating various debts. The debt referred to in this letter, to a tailor named Holub, remained unpaid for several years. On March 4, 1918, the lawyer Dr. Jakob Scheu wrote to Schiele with a reminder of his debt of 172 kronen 49 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MALLARMÉ, Stéphane
Paris: Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Française, 1914. First edition, one of 90 press-numbered copies printed on Vélin d'Arches paper. There was also a tirage de tête of 10 hors commerce copies printed on Monval paper; both of the grand papier issues were bound in Japon paper wrappers; the regular edition of 900 copies was printed and bound using ordinary paper. The colophon printed at the back of the book mentions only the two grand papier issues, with no mention of the ordinary edition. Vignes, Bibliographie des Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Française 1911-1919, 68 (ordinary paper issue). Mallarmé's last great work, Un Coup de Dés Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard, was published in La Revue Cosmopolis in 1897, the year before he died at the age of 56. The present edition, the first book publication of the poem, was prepared for publication by Mallarmé's son-in-law Edmond Bonniot, and includes the poet's final corrections and recommendations. The importance of Un Coup de Dés Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard, within Mallarme's oeuvre and within the world of modern poetry, cannot be overestimated. Upon seeing proofs for the poem in the projected Lahure edition, Paul Valery wrote: "It seemed to me that I was looking at the form and pattern of a thought, placed for the first time in finite space. Here space itself truly spoke, dreamed, and gave birth to temporal forms. Expectancy, doubt, consternation, all were visible things. . . . There amid murmurs, insinuations, visual thunder, a whole spiritual tempest carried page by page to the extremes of thought, to a point of ineffable rupture - t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sbarbaro, Camillo
pubblicato dalla Libreria della Voce (stampa: Stabilimento Tipografico Aldino), 1914. Importantissima silloge del Novecento, che incise sulla poesia dell'entre-deux-guerres, registrando in particolare una notevole influenza nei versi del giovane Montale. Comprende 29 poesie, di cui 8 già apparse sulla «Riviera Ligure. Il volume fu stampato a spese della sorella Clelia e venne definito dall'autore, «l'unico libro che ho fatto» poco prima di morire. Originariamente destinato a chiamarsi "Sottovoce", il titolo definitivo fu scelto da Papini, «ispirato da un concerto del musicista Gianotto Bastianelli a cui aveva da poco assistito» (Gambetti). Non comune e molto ricercato. Gambetti, Preziosi del Novecento, Alai 3, 2017, p. 21.

JOYCE, James
London: Grant Richards Ltd, 1914. London: Grant Richards Ltd,, 1914. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to front cover and spine gilt. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco and cloth slipcase, with matching chemise. Spine slightly faded, small white mark to centre of spine, light foxing to contents. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the month of publication on the half-title, "With the writer's compliments James Joyce Trieste 23 June 1914". This is one of the earliest copies inscribed by Joyce: under his onerous contract with Grant Richards, he was obliged to purchase 120 copies of the book himself, and this copy would have been among the first batch sent out from London to the author after the official publication date, 15 June. Trieste was then in the grip of tight postal restrictions, with the Great War only days away, and foreigners in particular were subject to customs inspections and postal delays. Joyce mentions these a number of times in his letters around this date. Rare: just three inscribed copies of Dubliners appear in auction records since 1975, of which only one other was inscribed in the month of publication (the other two were signed by Joyce much later, in the late 1920s). In a typical piece of self-promotion, Joyce has not only inscribed the book, but also inserted in it "Press Notices of Chamber Music", carefully reprinted from his scrapbook of clippings. Following Ellman, the traditional wisdom has been that Joyce requested Grant Richards to print the leaflet for him, but this is extre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Malley, Rosina L.
Akron: Saalfield, 1914. An unusual set of twenty-six muslin shaped books, one for each letter of the alphabet, housed in their original, colorfully printed box. Inside each book is simple text relating to the respective letter, with particular emphasis on vocabulary words, like "Cat," "Cake," and "Crumbs" for "C." Each book also features one or more color illustrations. Unrecorded in OCLC. The Saalfield Publishing Company operated from 1900 to 1977 and was once one of the largest publishers of children's materials in the world. When they ceased operations, a large collection of their publications went to Kent State University. Kent State, however, does not own this item. Letters show only scant soiling, but are otherwise bright and in unused condition. Box bumped at corners and edges and light staining to lid.

Schiele, Egon. (1890-1918)
Autograph letter from the important Austrian painter known for his intense, expressionist and often controversial works, to a Dr. Scheu (apparently the lawyer Dr. Jakob Scheu), regarding the repayment of a debt. May 7, 1914. Translated from the German, in part: "Dear Dr. Scheu, it is quite impossible at the moment for me to pay the whole debt of 247K for Mr. Holub; however, the week after next I will be able to pay a part, and I hope in the course of this month the rest. Best wishes, Egon Schiele." 1 p. of a bifolium on orange paper. Light creases; overall in fine condition. 6 x 8 inches (15.1 x 20.2 cm). Unpublished, not in Nebehay. 1914 found Schiele enjoying success for the first time outside of Austria-Hungary, exhibiting in Rome, Brussels, and Paris, and beginning to learn the art of engraving from Robert Philippi and with the support of Arthur Roessler. It was also in 1914 that he first encountered Edith Harms, daughter of a master locksmith whose house was across the street from his studio, whom he would marry in 1915. However, it was also a time of financial turmoil for Schiele. In January he exhibited in the Reininghaus Competition, and must have been disappointed not to win the prize of 3,000 kronen. Many of his letters from early 1914 find him making desperate attempts to sell paintings, while negotiating various debts. The debt referred to in this letter, to a tailor named Holub, remained unpaid for several years. On March 4, 1918, the lawyer Dr. Jakob Scheu wrote to Schiele with a reminder of his debt of 172 kronen 49 heller to the tailor, Holub (Nebehay, 1407) … [Click Below for Full Description]

Platten, J[ohn] R[ussell]
4to.16 leaves, ruled, pencil manuscript in legible cursive hand on rectos only. Bound in blue paper wrappers with marbled spine [light wear], paper label affixed to front cover. On each of the last three leaves, a bottom tear costs 4-8 lines of text. Good+. This is a first hand-account of the Siege of Antwerp written by John Russell Platten of the Collingwood Battalion. The Battalion was named after Lord Cuthbert Collingwood, Vice Admiral, and composed primarily of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. The Diary's abrupt change of tone, from pre-combat innocence to the horrors of war, is striking. The Battalion left Dover on Sunday, October 4, 1914, and landed at Dunkirk. They were sent to relieve the Belgians at Whybreck. On October 5th the Collingwood men occupied trenches beyond Antwerp. Bombarded for three days, they remained under fire through the night of October 8, with part of Antwerp ablaze. On October 9 the remaining garrison surrendered. Of the 700 seamen, only 22 reportedly got back to England; the rest were killed, or captured and interned in Holland or Germany. The October 4 entry describes the soldiers' jubilation upon learning that they would be "leaving for the continent." They marched to Dover, Patten's father and brother accompanying him until they reached the pier and said their goodbyes. On their way to Dunkirk the next day, they attacked their tins of "bully beef" with their bayonets and met a French torpedo boat, tossing halfpennies to the French soldiers as mementos and laughing as the soldiers scrambled after them. The excitement lasted into the … [Click Below for Full Description]
