Jackson Automotive Company
Background: The Jackson Automotive Company was known for its extraordinarily well built cars; particularly, their luxury models built in 1914 with the Jackson Imperial at $1885.00 being their largest and most expensive and while sales were made all across the Eastern United States, the New York sales division was where the greatest number of sales took place. Earlier their focus was on racing cars and in 1908 the Jackson entry led at the Indianapolis 500 which was stopped at 235 miles due to poor track conditions and a deadly wreck; therefore, the organizers refused to declare a winner. After entering three race cars in the 1911 Indianapolis 500 they moved to emphasizing beautiful cars instead of the racing variety and at one time had 500 works producing 2,000 cars a year before the assembly line concept was introduced. E.A. Dorflinger with whom they worked closely and whose letters are in this collection was known for his craftsmanship and entrepreneurial life. Among the enclosed papers is the original selling agreement giving him exclusive rights in his community to sell five Jackson Automobiles. Here we learn about early dealer percentages (22.5%) and factory breaks on shipping. The 42 items of correspondence often show the problems of ordering parts in the pre-assembly line era. Precision was needed and supplying the needed part meant individual manufacturing once the initial small stock was exhausted. In the years they produced three models: The Olympic, the Majestic, and the Imperial. In a later letter the Sultanic models as touring cars were offered and were being ad … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pennsylvania, 1914. Near Fine. Oblong quarto. Measuring 7" x 11". Black pebble grain leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 138 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring 2.5" x 4.5" to 4" x 5", with captions. Album is near fine with some rubbing and near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a nurse, Jane (last name not revealed), between 1907 and 1914. The album details her time at hospitals in Pennsylvania with her nursing friends as well as their leisure time. On the verso of the front board a poem is written that reads: "If you were feeling kind a' blue, and peace and sadness seemed to blend, what would you want to cheer you up? What would you want from your best friend? Would it be this?" The photos seem to have been taken by a head nurse with captions such as "my nurses" and show women in the starched white uniforms, hats, and capes worn by nurses of the time. She documented their "first cases" by taking pictures with other nurses and their patients, and of different shifts with a focus on the night nurses. One photo reads, "a sympathy group, we suffered together all night," which shows a group of night nurses in the early morning hours posing on the Pennsylvania Hospital grounds in front of a statue of William Penn. The nurses are shown throughout the album posing with doctors and patients. Along with the hospital photographs there are also photos of the women enjoying their time at the beach, a trip to St. Petersburg, Florida, and at farms of friends.A wonderful collection of snapshots dep … [Click Below for Full Description]

FORD, Henry
Detroit: Henry Ford. 1914. Ford provides the foreword to this pamphlet published by him; it is addressed, "To My Friend, the American Boy," and begins with a story of being in discussion with Thomas Edison and John Burroughs about the evils of smoking cigarettes. Burroughs' name doesn't reappear, but Edison's portrait provides a frontispiece, along with a reproduction of a brief letter by him explaining the science behind the harm cigarettes cause. There follows a two-page rebuttal, so to speak, by the President of the American Tobacco Company, followed by a dozen pages of counterpoint apparently compiled by Ford's secretary and covering the effects of cigarettes on the brain, the heart, athleticism, efficiency, morality, and the soul, among other things. 22 pages, stapled pictorial wrappers. Small ink stamp on flyleaf, and what looks like a partial erasure of same on the front cover. Near fine. Over the next two years, Ford published three more volumes of this Case, but the original, Volume 1, is extremely scarce: OCLC locates only one copy. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine.

Immanuel KOEZLE e. a.
Large 8°, 32 pp. printed text with illustrations within text, original printed tan wrappers, stapled (slightly age-toned, tiny tears in margins, loss of paper to the wrappes, wrappers torn on the spine). - [Aleppo, Syria: Deutschen Jung-Ma?nner-Mission im Orient (German Mission for Young Men in Orient) 1914]. A very rare magazine, published by young Christian German men in Aleppo, Syria, on the eve of WWI. Probably the first and only number. - This unusual magazine, written in German, was published in Aleppo, Syria, by young German missionaries. The articles, accompanied by photos and maps, give information on the life and missions in Aleppo, Baghdad, Armenia, Turkey etc. The cover shows the house of the publishers (German Missionaries) in Aleppo. This is probably the first (according to the first paragraphs of the first article) and last edition of the magazine, published just before the start of WWI. The magazine does not name the place or date of printing, but was, according to the text and advertisements, issued in 1914 in Aleppo, Syria. From 1917, during WWI, the magazine seems to be published in Berlin (OCLC 11808186). We could only trace one example of the magazine in one institution worldwide (Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Leipzig / Frankfurt am Main). References: OCLC 84812885.

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.

(BENSON, Robert)
xxvi, 229 pp. Large 4to, orig. grey cloth (corners bruised), gilt title on spine, t.e.g. London: Chiswick Press, 1914. Presentation copy of this catalogue of a collection described as having "a comprehensiveness that would have done credit to a professional curator." Benson (1850-1929), with his wife Evelyn, daughter of Robert Holford, "formed an important specialist collection. The senior partner of his eponymous bank, Benson was a member of the Burlington Fine Arts Club, a trustee of the National Gallery, and the editor of a number of catalogues of paintings, including that of his father-in-law's collection. The Bensons' taste was à la mode. They owned 114 early Italian paintings…as well as pictures by Gainsborough and Burne-Jones…"-Stourton and Sebag-Montefiore, The British as Art Collectors, p. 252-53."Despite the publication of his catalogue, Benson's collection is not well known today, probably because it was never the subject of a spectacular auction sale. [Joseph] Duveen bought the entire collection in 1927 and sold most of it to his American customers…today Benson's pictures are dispersed across many leading museums in North America."-op. cit., p. 253. In a possibly apocryphal story, Joseph Duveen handed Robert Benson a blank check during a dinner party. The collection was sold for 2.5 million dollars.The present catalogue lists all 114 of their Italian pictures and provides lengthy descriptions of each.Very good copy.

The book is a travel diary about the adventures and struggles of Russian immigrants in the New World. The text contains some statistical data about the immigrants, as well as Vil'chur's first impressions in New York after the arrival and his attempts to establish himself in his new surroundings. It is written with personal and emotional touch. One of the first accounts of Russian emigre life in North America. The book is signed by the author with the note: "To dear Grigorii Nikolaevich Raevskii - the author. February, 1924." Grigorii Nikolaevich Rakovskii (1889-1975) was a participant of the White Movement who was evacuated from Crimea via Constantinople and briefly lived in Prague before settling in New York. He worked as a journalist and bookseller, providing American libraries with rare Russian publications. He also collected materials on the history of the Russian emigration, which were later donated to the New York Public Library. KVK, OCLC show twelve copies, none outside of the US.

Clark, Allen C.
W.F. Roberts Company, Washington, D.C. A handsome and substantial volume bound in pebbled black leather and stamped brightly in gold with gold border rules, decorations and a gilded silhouette of Dolly Madison on the front boards. With gilded title and silhouette also on the spine which is rubbed and frayed at the top and bottom ends. Corners worn. A solid volume nearly 3" thick, 7" wide x 9 3/4" tall with a total of 517 pages. Edge-rubbing along the rear boards and along the spine. Top edges gilded. Illustrated with 45 full-page plates, mostly photographs and some paintings. With a frontispiece of Dolly Madison by Stuart Gilbert. A wonderful resource of the life of this famous First Lady, wife of James Madison, noted for her social graces and for saving the Stuart Gilbert Portrait of George Washington when the British set fire to the White House in 1814. Dolley Payne Todd Madison(1768 – 1849) was the wife of James Madison, President of the United States from 1809 to 1817. She was noted for her social graces, which boosted her husband’s popularity as President. In this way, she did much to define the role of the President’s spouse, known only much later by the title First Lady—a function she had sometimes performed earlier for the widowed Thomas Jefferson.Dolley Madison worked with the architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe to furnish the White House, the first official residence built for the president of the United States. She sometimes served as widower Jefferson's hostess for official ceremonial functions.In the approach to the 1808 presidential election, with Thomas Jefferso … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wyndham Lewis; Ezra Pound; Edward Wadsworth, Jacob Epstein, Spencer Gore, Gaudier Brzeska
London: John Lane; The Bodley Head, 1914 Book. Good. Wrappers. 1st Edition. [10] pp 11-160 [4] adverts. First edition of the scarce and short-lived literary magazine of the British Vorticist movement. Published in folio format, this desirable first issue is in fair condition only. The upper puce wrapper is present though detached from the book and chipped to the edges; the puce covering to the spine is absent and the lower wrapper also not present. Printed on soft paper, the title page is soiled with a horizontal tear about 10cm long and half a centimeter in depth across the word 'Blast' and extending in diminished form through the next leaf; the sewing is weak although the text block is intact. Happily the text has been collated and is complete though several of the half tone plates showing works of art by Wadsworth, Epstein and Brzeska are detached. Bradford Morrow has described the journal's publication thus: ' Its intentions were quite simple: to revive English art and literature, casting an electrifying light into murky corners of Georgian passivity. Lewis continued to send additional contributions to the printers during the spring, and the remarkable first issue of BLAST wasn't finally published until the end of June 1914. It caused an immediate sensation.' The opening pages contain the Vorticist manifesto; there follows a critique of Kandinsky, a patronising exhortation to suffragettes not to destroy works of art and after a review of a London exhibition of Expressionist woodcuts Wyndham Lewis couldn't resist a final dig at Marinetti.

BENSON, Robert)
1914. xxvi, 229 pp. Large 4to, orig. grey cloth (corners bruised), gilt title on spine, t.e.g. London: Chiswick Press, 1914. Presentation copy of this catalogue of a collection described as having "a comprehensiveness that would have done credit to a professional curator." Benson (1850-1929), with his wife Evelyn, daughter of Robert Holford, "formed an important specialist collection. The senior partner of his eponymous bank, Benson was a member of the Burlington Fine Arts Club, a trustee of the National Gallery, and the editor of a number of catalogues of paintings, including that of his father-in-law's collection. The Bensons' taste was à la mode. They owned 114 early Italian paintings.as well as pictures by Gainsborough and Burne-Jones."-Stourton and Sebag-Montefiore, The British as Art Collectors, p. 252-53. "Despite the publication of his catalogue, Benson's collection is not well known today, probably because it was never the subject of a spectacular auction sale. [Joseph] Duveen bought the entire collection in 1927 and sold most of it to his American customers.today Benson's pictures are dispersed across many leading museums in North America."-op. cit., p. 253. In a possibly apocryphal story, Joseph Duveen handed Robert Benson a blank check during a dinner party. The collection was sold for 2.5 million dollars. The present catalogue lists all 114 of their Italian pictures and provides lengthy descriptions of each. Very good copy. Bookplate of Robert and Evelyn Benson. Presented by Benson to Charles D. R. Williamson, with inscriptions in Latin and Greek, dated January … [Click Below for Full Description]
