        The Story of the Munsters, at Etreux-Festubert-Rue Du Bois

      , 1915. 1st edition. 56 pages in soft brown card as issued, stapled, some extremity wear, colour regimental flags on the front cover, some b/w photos of the principal officers, some red biro emendations in the margins by 'D.M.L', who shows a clear knowledge of events and officers involved. The Royal Munster Fusiliers, already a highly distinguished regiment over the previous two centuries, were involved in some of the fiercest and most courageous fighting on the Western Front in World War One, losing many troops and officers. This account of their stands in 1914 & 1915 at Etreux, Festubert and Rue Du Bois, is by the widow of Lt-Col Rickard, commander of 2nd Battalion R.M.F, who was killed in action at Rue Du Bois. An Appendix contains 10 letters, a passage from a speech by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and three messages of congratulations and appreciation from General Officers. No other extant copy online, so completely unique. Additionally, it comes with an oblong booklet also in soft covers, side-bound with cord, with some extremity wear, which contains 28 photographs of the 2nd Battalion when it was stationed in Cairo in 1920/21. The photos include officers, staff sergeants, colour sergeants, corporals, the various companies, the band, sports teams, battle honours, the 'Men of Mons' etc, many with the names of the troops on opposite pages. Again, this is a unique copy as far as we are aware. The two items together demonstrate the prowess of one of the great regiments in British and Irish history.

        Nursery Rhymes Set to New Tunes

      Chelsea: (Southernwood Press, 1915. Winser, Josephine. Small quarto. (23)ff. One of thirty copies printed on handmade paper. Illustrated throughout by Josephine Winser. The drawings illustrate popular nursery rhymes, including Humpty Dumpty, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Jack & Jill, and Sing a Song of Sixpence. Children take center stage in these depictions, whether presenting the blackbird-filled pie to the king or herding sheep into the pasture. The images appear on the versos of the pages, opposite the music and lyrics for each nursery rhyme. Winser's illustrations show elements of Art Nouveau style, with decorative pictorial borders framing each scene, and are reminiscent of the work of Walter Crane. Although not noted in the book, this title was printed by the Curwen Press for the Southernwood Press. Of exceptional scarcity, and perhaps one of the earliest deluxe books combining music and illustrations to come from the Curwen Press. Light offsetting to endpapers, else extremely fine in original vellum-backed grey boards with title in gilt on upper cover. (Tomkinson, p. 231).

        Palestine Exploration Fund Annual, 1914–1915 The Wilderness of Zin

      London: by order of the Committee,, 1915. (Archaeological Report.) With a Chapter on the Greek Inscriptions by M. N. Tod. Quarto. Original dark blue quarter cloth, grey boards, titles to spine gilt and to front board in black. 37 plates to rear with tissue-guards laid in, several plans and illustrations to the text of which 7 full-page and one folding. Slightly sunned overall, corners bumped and rubbed, a few faint scuff-marks to boards, light spotting to edges and endpapers. A very good copy. First edition, sole printing, in the first issue binding with the full stop after the date on the spine. During January and February of 1914 Lawrence and Leonard Woolley (the archaeologist who would later excavate Ur), together with a British Army surveying detachment, mapped the Negev region of the Sinai Peninsula. The Negev was ruled by the Ottoman Empire, and the survey was a military venture in the guise of an archaeological expedition, preparation for the war the British believed was imminent. Publication in the respected academic journal of the Palestine Exploration Fund was a whitewash to disguise the military nature of the undertaking. The Wilderness of Zin was Lawrence's first work to appear in book form.

        BIOLOGIA CENTRALI-AMERICANA; OR, CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FAUNA AND FLORA OF MEXICO AND CENTRAL AMERICA

      London: R.H. Porter and Dulau and Co., 1915. Quarto and oblong folio. Uniform contemporary gold-tooled red morocco, t.e.g. Some spines evenly faded. Oblong volumes in similar contemporary red half morocco, t.e.g.; original wrappers and Botany indices bound in three separate volumes in contemporary red half cloth. Several plates spotted on margins, a few plates in ARCHAEOLOGY slightly browned. A superb, remarkable set. Provenance: Frederick DuCane Godman (armorial bookplates). The editor's copy of the most comprehensive study of Central American wildlife, in fine condition, and the most complete set to have appeared on the market in the past thirty-five years. The BIOLOGIA is one of the towering achievements of natural history research in the Americas, and remains fundamental to the study of Neotropical plants and animals to this day. Almost 19,000 separate subjects are depicted in the plates and over 50,000 species described, of which almost 20,000 were first noted here. In addition, the extraordinary segment on archeology by Alfred Maudslay remains vital to Mayan studies to this day. Because of the massive nature of the work and its extended period of publication, and because subscribers could purchase sections of the work without subscribing to the whole, most holdings are fragmentary. Since this is Godman's own copy, in superb condition, it is certainly the finest in existence. Frederick DuCane Godman, who conceived, authored, and underwrote the BIOLOGIA, was born into a wealthy English family in 1834 (his father was a partner in the British brewer, Whitbread). After study at Eton and Cambridge, where he met his later co-author, Osbert Salvin, he embarked on a career of studies in ornithology and entomology. In 1861, Godman and Salvin visited Central America together, the first of a number of trips that led to their conception of the BIOLOGIA project. Work on it began in 1876 and the first volumes were published in 1879. Publication was spread over the next thirty-six years, with six or seven parts coming out annually. Most of the research for the project was done in the 1870s and 1880s, after which both men were hampered by ill health. Salvin died in 1898, and publication only terminated with World War I. Godman died in 1919. The entire BIOLOGIA project was conceived and executed at the highest level of scholarship and production, with almost 900 colored plates. It remains the single greatest published resource for New World natural history. It is still a vital reference tool, ever more so today, as issues of biodiversity and extinction move to the forefront of scientific inquiry. It is also a work of great beauty, produced on a level of lavishness that would be impossible today. Although it was not part of the original conception of the work, Godman made the fortunate decision to include a section of Central American archeology. This section was edited by Alfred Maudslay, another Cambridge polymath who became intrigued by the Mayan ruins in Guatemala in 1880. Maudslay spent the next two decades exploring the sites of Tikal, Copan, Quirigua, and Yaxchilan, as well as Chichen Itza. He made careful measurements and took hundreds of photographs, many of them reproduced in colotype in four folio atlases in the BIOLOGIA. His photographs and casts documented many sites later disturbed or plundered. Michael Coe says, "It is impossible to exaggerate the importance to Maya research of Maudslay's published work." Coe goes on to call Maudslay the greatest single recorder of Mayan inscriptions. A massive and important pictorial work of American natural history, in what is certainly the finest copy extant.

        Flickor och sol. [Äv. "Midsommarblomster.]

      Tuschlavering. Signerad och daterad: "Sandels / 1915". 16 x 20,5 cm. Proveniens: Dispaschör Conrad Pineus samling. Litteratur: "Katalog över Conrad M. Pineus konstsamling" (1940), s. 424, nr 278, avbildad, med hänvisning till MU (Minnesutställningen i Konstakademien 1932), kat. nr 242. Från den kanske allra finaste Sandelssamlingen, som omfattade 87 teckningar och många viktiga målningar. "Samlingen [av Sandelsteckningar] eller delar av den ha vid fyra olika tillfällen varit offentligt utställda: för första gången 1920 vid de bägge minnesutställningarna i Göteborgs Museum och i Konstnerforbundet i Kristiania, därefter 1925 i Göteborgs Konsthall, då konstsamlingen i sin helhet visades för allmänheten, och slutligen på den 1932 i Konstakademien i Stockholm arrangerade minnesutställningen. Endast vid sistnämnda tillfälle förekom tryckt katalog över de utställda akvarellerna och teckningarna". Pineus var mycket viktig för Sandels som ekonomisk supporter och vän. Han berör honom i förordet till sin magnifika katalog: "Min afdöde beundrade vän Gösta Sandels måste också nämnas - jag var lycklig nog att under hans sista år komma honom mycket nära och kanske göra det lättare för honom."

        Doctor Syn A Tale of The Romney Marsh

      London Thomas Nelson and Sons 1915. 8vo. 352pp. Publisher's dark blue cloth titled and decorated in white and gilt to spine and front board. Gilt bright and sharp, a little bumped to spine with some light edgewear to extremities. Very good. A solid and thoroughly good looking copy of this classic tale of smuggling and skullduggery more normally seen looking like it was fished out of a pond at midnight. Internally clean. Well. I say internally clean meaning no spotting or foxing or squashed mice jammed between the pages; in actual fact this is the Nettlefold Film Studios copy, bearing the signature of Archibald Nettlefold to the front flyleaf in pencil and a plethora of annotations, cutting instructions, edits and scene titles to each chapter. Clearly Nettlefold had every intention of producing a movie of Thorndike's smuggling novel, and this copy gives a detailed outline of the process he intended to follow. Originally Hepworth Studios, founded in 1899, the location in Waltham on Thames changed names in 1926; the demise of Hepworth's enterprise signalled a collossal disaster for the British film industry as it involved the destruction of the entire archive, meaning basically that 80% of the films made in Britain between 1900 and 1929 were forever lost to history. Nettlefold only converted to sound in the 1930's, and this marked up copy has the feel of something intended more for a silent treatment than a "talkie". The studios were taken over by Armstrong Vickers during WW2 and suffered considerable bomb damage before being sold in 1947. Eventually they were renamed Walton Studios, most famous for producing television series like "The Adventures of Robin Hood." Not only a very respectable copy of a difficult book, but also an intriguing piece of British cinema history. Doctor Syn wasn't filmed until 1963 under the title "Dr. Syn: Alias The Scarecrow." starring Patrick McGoohan and George Cole.

        Ziegenhirtin (Mutterslehn).

      - Radierung, 1915/16, auf Kupferdruckpapier, in der Platte monogrammiert und datiert „1897", signiert von Agathe Thoma sowie mit Signaturstempel von Hans Thoma. 29,5:38,5 cm. Literatur: Nicht bei Beringer, vgl. Beringer 184 und 196. Von großer Seltenheit, vielleicht ein Unikat! Probedruck einer Radierung, die Beringer unbekannt geblieben ist. Wahrscheinlich war Thoma mit dem Druckergebnis nicht zufrieden und hat die Platte „verworfen". - Papier am rechten Rand entlang der Plattenkante gebrochen und hinterlegt, Einriß im oberen Rand sorgfältig restauriert. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

        "Zeppelin"

      Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], 1915. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling in the margins and the image. Small loss upper right edge. This LZ2 was built sometime between 1910 and 1914. Five airships of this design operated by Delag, safely carried 35,000 passengers between German cities. This was the first passenger air service in the world. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.
