        The Good Soldier: A Tale of Passion

      John Lane 1915 Hardcover without jacket. Scarce first edition. Slightly cocked, with few marks on rear board. Edges and spine sides are slightly worn; leading corners and spine ends are bumped and fraying a little. Label over upper edge of front pastedown, partially visible on upper edge of front board. Very few small, minor marks on discoloured page block. Previous owner's name penned on FEP. Endpapers are tanned; minor foxing and age - related marks on a few pages within - never obscuring text. Hinge is slightly weak from age in a few places, the most noticeable instance being at p.272 / 3, but all pages remain intact. Very few pages have faintly creased leading corners. Despite these minor imperfections caused mainly by age, item is well - preserved, and all text remains clear. TS Used

Jackson also contributed to the development of laryngeal surgery. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

À Marcel MONMARCHE, directeur des Guides Bleus: « Il m’avait suffi de l’aimable obstination de Louis Hachette à ne pas agréer mes raisons pour être aussi sûr de son refus final que de notre victoire sur les Allemands : tellement sûr que déjà je cherchais ailleurs une occupation, un désennui. Si j’avais su que vous aviez pour les subséquents volumes de l’Antibédéqueur (proscrivons l’orthographe allemande) un aide éprouvé [.] je n’aurais pas posé ma candidature. Mes raisons sont bonnes, parce que malgré mon long stage ici-bas (sans croire au là-haut) j’ai encore de l’ardeur, de la rapidité, et que je m’adapte sans peine au travail que je m’impose ». Mais il comprend très bien que « l’antibédéqueur » se serve d’ouvriers expérimentés.

        Moor Park, Rickmansworth: A Series of Photographs

      London: Elkin Mathews,, 1915. With an Introduction by Lady Ebury. Small quarto. Original green paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front board black. 20 tipped-in plates. Boards toned, edges bumped, spine and tips partially worn, contents faintly foxed with clean plates, hinges sound. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by the photographer, "To Lawrence J. Gomme, with best wishes from Alvin Langdon Coburn. Xmas 1915." Gomme (1883-1974) was a friend of Coburn and an exhibitor of his works. Laid-in is correspondence between Gomme and a bookseller in 1971, who had bought the book and tracked down Gomme's address. An astonished Gomme, unsure as to how the book left his possession, writes "I am curious to know how you acquired the Volume…I remember the book very well and had it in my possession at the time I closed the shop to do war work in 1917." Gomme, later a bookseller himself, became the first President of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) in 1949.

        [Photo Album]: American Expeditionary Force WWI

      France. 1915-1917. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12.5". Black leather photo album. A collection of 244 sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 3.5" x 6", some with captions. A good only photo album with detached pages with very good or better photographs affixed to stiff black paper. A photo album containing photos of a marina around 1915 as well as photos apparently taken by a seaman in World War I. The early photographs show a group of men working on a large ship, both docked and at sea, including images of passing ships, men at the ship's wheel, and one of an unnamed lighthouse. After a break in the album, the second half shows a man's service, with either the Marines or Navy during World War I as part of the 1st American Expeditionary Force to France on the U.S.S. Seattle in 1917. They docked at Port St. Nazaire in France, seen here, and were the first American troops in France. According to historian, Fred Baldwin, "The USA had joined the war, fighting alongside the Allies, and chose Saint-Nazaire as one of their most important entry harbors to France and Western European battlefields. Between 1917 and 1919, almost 198,000 troops and a daily average of 4,000 tons of material transited through Saint-Nazaire." These pictures show the first U.S. troops marching through St. Nazaire, local women working for the war effort, and a photograph captioned "U.S. aeroplane." Depicted here are French troops dubbed "Frenchies" as well as French children. A few pages show German prisoners with captions like, "glad to talk to we Americans," "well fed and happy," and "glad to be in France," which assumes the lives of P.O.W.s in France was preferable to life in the trenches. There are uncaptioned photos of European towns and local people as well as sailors posed in uniform in front of stately homes and in town squares. One photo shows a group of U.S. Marines engaged in Fourth of July activities on board ship in 1917. The last few pages show the men leaving port with at-sea photographs of the crew, a large group of uniformed soldiers presumably waiting to be offloaded for a mission, and passing ships including an unnamed medical vessel. An extensive collection of an American seaman's duty during World War I. .

Spine a little faded, boards with a few scuffs and spots, front board slightly worn at corners, faint foxing to endpapers. An excellent copy with exceptionally bright contents.

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.

        La Ovandina. Tomo Primero [todo lo publicado]. Introducción de Don Manuel Serrano y Sanz

      Madrid, Librería General de Victoriano Suárez, 1915 [Colección de Libros y Documentos referentes a la Historia de América]. 4to. menor; CXXXV-592 pp., 3 hs. y una lámina. Cubiertas originales. El autor, nieto de Hernán Mexia, siguió los pasos de éste y fue cronista de linajes coloniales, iniciando la publicación de su obra en Lima en 1621 lo que le llevaría a un proceso inquisitorial que duró hasta 1626 y a la prohibición de la misma, por lo que quedaría inconclusa. Se le considera uno de los mayores falsificadores de genealogías, con una habilidad tal que lograba enlazar los ascendientes directos de muchos «ricoshombres» americanos con los árboles de las más antiguas familias españolas, lo que si por un lado le proporcionaba sustanciosos ingresos, por otro provocaba la ira de los que quedaban excluídos de sus eruditos manejos, quienes se encargaron de informar al Santo Oficio, que ordenó la destrucción de los ejemplares de la única, hasta la presente, edición limeña.

No. 12 OF 675 COPIES printed for sale in the United States (with an additional 100 copies signed and in quarter vellum; a total of 775 American copies) n. Hardcover. 297 x 236 mm (11 3/4 x 9 1/2"). 6 p.l., 150, [2] pp. First American Trade Edition. No. 12 OF 675 COPIES printed for sale in the United States (with an additional 100 copies signed and in quarter vellum; a total of 775 American copies). Publisher's ivory-colored cloth over gray patterned boards, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, and in the rare original dust jacket. Housed in a sturdy (slightly soiled) slipcase. CONTAINING 20 COLOR PLATES BY DULAC, with original descriptive tissue guards. Hughey 54e. Tissue guards uniformly toned as usual, jacket with extensive neat repairs to underside, small losses along top edge, sunning to spine, and other minor defects, but the volume itself in very fine condition. This is a desirable copy--in the rarely seen dust jacket--of a survey of pearls in history, culture, and legend, offered in an edition the contemporary literary critic of the "London Times" described as "fantastically Persian" and showing Dulac "at his best." After originally publishing the work under the title "Au Royaume de la Perle" in 1919, the author commissioned Dulac to produce watercolors appropriate to the text. He then arranged for Parisian publisher H. Piazza to issue a new edition with the Dulac illustrations and, later, for an English translation to be published in London. The print run for the latter edition was 1,500 copies, but when the book was commercially unsuccessful, the remaining sheets were sold to Brentano's in New York for the present American edition. Hughey says that the illustrations here "display a ripening of a Dulac style first seen in 'Sindbad the Sailor,' employed in some of his 'Fairy Book' pictures and developed fully in 'The Tanglewood Tales.' It is a Persian miniature style, but made quite his own. His plates . . . do much to bring a fanciful touch to the otherwise stark exposition of a treatise on pearls." This work is a curious amalgam of illustrative achievement and commercial strategem: at the time of the book's publication, Léonard Rosenthal was the largest dealer of natural pearls in the world and was known as "The Pearl King."

        1914 and Other Poems

      London: Sidgwick & Jackson, 1915 First edition, first printing. One of 1,000 copies. Publisher's navy cloth, with light tan paper labels lettered in black and ruled in red to the front board and spine, printed on laid paper; in the original light beige dust jacket, lettered in navy. Near fine, with some minor wear to the spine ends, light spotting and faint offsetting to the endpapers, otherwise fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and chipping to the extremities, light toning to the spine, loss to the spine ends, some light soiling to the panels. Overall, a presentable copy in the scarce dust jacket. Published shortly after his death in 1915, 1914 and Other Poems contains the poetry of Rupert Brooke, English poet and member of the literary Bloomsbury Group, from 1905-1914. Specifically it includes Brooke's five war sonnets that are collectively known as "1914," two verses he wrote prior to the war, and the many poems he wrote while in the South Seas. In these verses, Brooke eloquently captures the patriotic and romantic mood that he shared with his countrymen, including servicemen and civilians alike, at the beginning of the war. Unfortunately, Brooke tragically died at the young age of 27 in 1915, just as his poetry was reaching national acclaim, and after which time he became a symbol for the loss of youth and innocence that would plague the "Lost Generation" in the years after WWI. Indeed, Brooke's poetry influenced the writing of F. Scott Fitzgerald, even inspiring the title of his first book, This Side of Paradise (taken from the poem "Tiare Tahiti": "Well this side of Paradise!… There's little comfort in the wise."). 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        [11] Lieder. Musical manuscripts, most probably autograph, ca. 1930-40

      Folio (ca. 338 x 270 mm.). Dark pink wrappers with titling in pencil. Unbound. Notated in black ink on three different pre-printed 12-stave papers, mostly "Ashelm 1068 49" specifically designed for music for a voice/melody instrument with piano (groups of three staves, with the lower two closer to each other and braced); no. 6 notated on unidentified paper with equal spacing between staves; no. 9 notated on "[three anchors] 14" specifically designed for music for a voice/melody instrument with piano (groups of three staves, with the lower two closer to each other and braced). Music unsigned and undated. "Grete Cohn" to upper wrapper only. With occasional corrections and markings in both pencil and ink. The first three and the last of the songs are not numbered and their intended order is unclear: Zum neuen Jahr (Eduard Mörike); Kleine leichte weiße Wolke (Hermann Claudius); Früh, wann die Hähne krähn (Eduard Mörike); 4. Kleines Lied (Hermann Claudius); 5. Dein Gedenken (Will Vesper); 6. Wenn schlanke Lilien wandelten (Gottfried Keller); 7. Nachtlied (Friedrich Hebbel); 9. Sterne mit den goldnen Füßchen (Heinrich Heine); Herbsttag (Rainer Maria Rilke); 10. Beim Mondenscheine im Paradeis (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe). [11.] Ernste Stunde (Rainer Maria Rilke). Two songs (Dein Gedenken and Ernste Stunde) have the text written not only as underlay but also on the page preceding the music; in addition, Dein Gedenken has a title page. With: An untitled piano piece in E major, 32 measures. Notated in pencil on 12-stave pre-printed music paper "J.E. No. 2." Last two staves of recto and all of verso blank. The non-standard key signature in the right hand—the sharps for F and G are at the lower octave—and stylistic features suggest that this composition is a very early one. Wrappers worn and partially detached. Slightly worn, frayed and creased. . Unrecorded compositions by an unrecorded composer. It seems possible, however, that "Grete Cohn" is identical with Margarete Cohn (born 1915 in Berlin, died 2014 in Tucson, Arizona), who lived in Great Britain from 1939 to 1946 and in the United States thereafter. Margarete Cohn studied composition at the Staatliche Musikhochschule in Berlin and, after her dismissal in 1933, privately with Paul Hindemith. Some works of hers were performed at the Jüdischer Kulturbund in Berlin. She is listed in the Lexikon der Juden in der Musik. After her arrival in the United States she changed her name to Margaret H. Collin and no longer pursued a musical career. No extant works of hers are known. See the online encyclopedia LexM on the website of Hamburg University. In view of the fact that the composer was Jewish, it seems ironic that two of the poets she set to music—Will Vesper and Hermann Claudius—were ardent Nazis.

        1915. Carte d'Europe.

      1915 - Paris, 1915. Ink and watercolour on cartridge paper. 430 x 560mm. A professional-quality satirical map depicting the countries of Europe during the second year of the First World War. At the centre is a figure representing Germany, wearing a pickelhaube (spiked helmet) and a Kaiser-Bill moustache, sword in one hand and poison-gas canister in the other. Underneath is a decrepid old man on crutches waving a wooden sword, a sad indictment of the fomer glories of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Germany's third ally, the Ottoman Empire, is shown with legs amputated above the knee, with only stilts in their place. Bulgaria sharpens his sword. Surrounding Germany are its opponents: both England and Russia are turning their big guns on Germany, while French, Serbian and Italian soldiers advance with bayonets fixed. Cartographical accuracy is ignored in this satire, with the countries only rough shapes. However it should be noted that Scotland is an island, Serbia is east of Austria and there is no Bosphorus separating Europe and Asia. We assumed that this caricature was drawn for publication: however we have been unable to trace any printed version. The artist was serious when he wrote 'Reproduction interdite' in the bottom corner.

        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 quarter blue 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. Boards very faintly sunned towards edges and sometime bumped leading to very faint crease-mark towards top edge of each, old repair to bottom corner of rear board, internally bright and fresh. An excellent copy. First edition, sole printing, in the second issue binding without 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.
