        On Spinal Injuries of Warfare. Being the Goulstonian Lectures Delivered before the Royal College of Physicians of London." INSCRIBED BY GORDON HOLMES: "With kind regards/ G H." Reprinted from the British Medical Journal, November 27th, December 4th and 11th, 1915.

      London: 1915. - 55 pp; 11 figs. Original wrappers. Very Good. First Edition. INSCRIBED BY GORDON HOLMES: "With kind regards/ G H." "The First World War broke out in August 1914. Holmes applied for a commission in the RAMC but was rejected on account of myopia. Determined to serve in France, he and Percy Sargent, a colleague at Queen Square, joined the staff of a Red Cross hospital just behind the front line. . . . The result of their treatment of brain and spinal trauma were so successful that the War Office was aroused, revoked Holmes's disqualification, and appointed him Consultant Neurologist to the British Armies in France. He and Sargent set up their neurosurgical unit in No. 13 General Hospital, where they were to carry out the work for which they became famous throughout the medical world. . . . Holmes's third research was study of 300 soldiers who had sustained gunshot wounds of the spine. . ." (Parsons-Smith, "Sir Gordon Holmes", in Rose & Bynum, Historical Aspects of the Neurosciences, pp. 360-62). "There is one other aspect of Holmes's spinal cord studies that needs to be mentioned: his investigation of the acute spinal injuries of warfare, that formed the basis for his Goulstonian lectures to the Royal College of Physicians in 1915. His careful observations made under appalling conditions resolved a number of controversies about pathways in the spinal cord" (McDonald, "Gordon Holmes and the Neurological Heritage", Brain, Vol. 130, 2007, pp. 288-298).

        Entwurf einer verallgemeinerten Relativitätstheorie und einer Theorie der Gravitation. [Outline of a Generalized Theory of Relativity and of a Theory of Gravitation]

      Berlin: Teubner. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT, of Einstein's breakthrough work on general relativity: the famous "Entwurf" paper. From the library of physicist Walther Gerlach. "In this book, Einstein and Grossman investigated curved space and curved time as they relate to a theory of gravity. They presented virtually all the elements of the general theory of relativity with the exception of one striking omission: gravitational field equations that were not generally covariant. Einstein soon reconciled himself to this lack of general covariance through the 'hole argument,' which sought to establish that generally covariant gravitational field equations would be physically uninteresting. Einstein did not adopt the gravitational field equations until late in 1915 in his final formulations of the general theory. Here, Einstein contributed the physics and Grossman the mathematics" (Calaprice, The Einstein Almanac, 40). Weil 59a. Provenance: Walther Gerlach's copy, with his stamp on the front cover. Gerlach was a major figure in 20th-century physics, known primarily for his role in the Stern-Gerlach experiment, discovering spin quantization in a magnetic field. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Mathematik und Physik, volume 62. Leipzig and Berlin: Teubner, 1913. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. A hint of toning around edges. An outstanding copy, very rare in such good condition.

        The Rainbow

      London: Methuen and Co., 1915 First edition, first printing. One of 2,500 copies, "of which the majority, presumably, were destroyed." Publisher's blue-green cloth, front board stamped in blind, spine stamped in gilt. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, very light toning to the spine, bright spine gilt, a few light spots of soiling to the otherwise bright boards, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, bookseller's description tipped in to the front free endpaper, light offsetting to the free endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh interior. A tight and pleasing copy. Roberts A7.1 The Rainbow is a controversial novel that chronicles the lives of three generations of Brangwens, a farming family from Nottinghamshire, whose livelihoods and relationships are affected by the industrialization of England. Lawrence originally intended the text, which he edited and revised for several years, to be titled "The Sisters," but eventually divided it into The Rainbow and its sequel Women in Love (1920). Within a month after its publication, The Rainbow was censored for Lawrence's unapologetic descriptions of the characters' sexual desires and how these feelings affected their relationships with one another. The first of Lawrence's novels to fall victim to censorship, The Rainbow was later subject to a court action under the Obscene Publications Act of 1857. Lawrence biographer Warren Roberts notes that of the first printing of 2,500 copies, "the majority, presumably, were destroyed as a result of the court action against the book," which drastically increases the scarcity of surviving copies such as this one.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        The Birth of a Nation (Original handbill for early theatrical run at the Newark Theatre in Newark, New Jersey)

      Newark: Newark Theatre, 1915. Original handbill for a theatrical run of D.W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation" (1915) at the Newark Theatre in Newark, New Jersey. Noted on the bill are cast members Lillian Gish, Mae Marsh, Donald Crisp, and Raoul Walsh (here spelled "Raul Walsh"), who played John Wilkes Booth. Also noted on the bill is that the film is to be accompanied by a full symphony orchestra under the direction of Albert Pesce, who arranged music for four D.W. Griffith films between 1919 and 1922. An early epic from Griffith, who was inspired by the sprawling Italian productions "Quo Vadis" (1913) and "Cabiria" (1914), films that not only legitimated the feature film runtime but made extensive use of the traveling camera, something Griffith revolutionized in the United States with this film. At the time of production, American companies were skeptical of an audience's ability to endure complicated narratives and inflated runtimes, so Griffith formed his own production company to take it on, leaving Biograph in 1913, where he made numerous successful shorts. Upon release, it was an immediate hit with audiences, and screened at movie palaces like Newark Theatre for years, ultimately becoming the highest grossing film of the silent era. 5.5 x 8 inches. Faint dampstain and small chip to the upper edge, overall very well preserved, Very Good plus.

        The Rainbow

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,, 1915. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind. With the dust jacket. In a green cloth solander case. Minor bump at the top of the spine but a sparkling copy in the pictorial dust jacket with some small loss at the ends of the spine panel, two tips and with a little chip at the top edge of the front panel. First edition, first impression. Methuen published The Rainbow in September 1915, but quickly withdrew it from sale in the face of almost universally hostile reviews and impending prosecution. At Bow Street magistrates' court on 13 November it was banned as obscene, with the result that half of the print run was destroyed. This is one of a handful of extant copies in the dust jacket. Methuen's adoption of this groundbreaking style of jacket design began right at the time this book was in production, it closely resembles Conrad's Victory and a number of the other titles in the series advertised on the flaps and rear panel of this dust jacket. The innovation of having special designs made for the dust jacket which were neither taken from an image in the book itself, nor simply the printing on paper of the binding brasses made for the cloth, but rather a unique addition to the whole of the book itself seem commonplace now but were revolutionary at the time. English book design changed that year and, notwithstanding the destruction of half its edition, the dust jacket on The Rainbow was a part of that change.

First edition, first impression of the author's first novel, and the first in her 13-book cycle entitled Pilgrimage. Richardson was a clear precursor to James Joyce and Virginia Woolf, and it was to describe her work that the phrase "stream of consciousness" was first applied in a literary context, by May Sinclair in The Egoist.

        [Photo Album]: Tour of California and the American West. 1915

      Quarto album. Brown leather over flexible card covers with "Photographs" in gilt. 76 gelatin silver sepia-toned snapshot photographs. Uniformly sized at approximately 4" x 3". Most of the images are readably captioned in white, although there is some smudging and a few have worn away or are illegible. Some erosion to the leather on the spine, modest spotting on the boards, very good; internally the images are very good or better. The album depicts a tour of California, and peripherally through the West. The journey commences in New Orleans with a photo of a well-dressed woman standing on the steps of a train caboose, progresses through Texas where it shows an encampment of U.S. soldiers at Alpine, Texas, continues onto "Squa[w]s at Yuma, Arizona," and reaches California, arriving at Los Angeles. The photographs jump around a bit geographically, and include a brief jaunt to Tijuana, Fairmount Park in Riverside, and showing two women posing before lemon, orange, and almond trees, a bird's-eye view of Pasadena from Mt. Lowe, as well as of the women bathing at the beach, playing billiards, and golfing. Additionally there are several images taken at the San Diego Exposition, including several of the women feeding pigeons from a wicker rolling cart, as well as a trip to Catalina Island. Additionally there are some motoring photos of the women working their way up to Carmel, with photos taken from and of the Carmel Tower, of giant redwoods, and of the Lick Observatory in San Jose, of Hearst Memorial Greek Theatre at Berkeley, and finally several taken of the Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco (this time they are pictured in a Baker Electric Wicker rolling cart). The last few are of Barstow, Williams, Arizona, and the Grand Canyon, presumably on the return trip. As both the San Diego and Pan Pacific Expositions were held in 1915, we are reasonably confident of the 1915 attribution. A pleasing album with interesting and nicely composed images of a tour of California. .

Divided into compartments, green felt-covered background and dividers; the 10 compartments show the stages of linen production from seed through straw and yarn to the finished textile; 6 large samples, unbleached and bleached, linen damask, and finished embroidered linen handkerchiefs; each compartment neatly labelled with typed slips; some of the samples featuring stamped designs, an Irish Harp, a crown encircled by a belt, an eagle with vase and floral decoration; two with floral embroidery and printed, embossed and gilt labels for the Belgallen and Lismoyne linens. Minor dust-soiling and slight darkening to samples under glass, frame just a touch rubbed, backing renewed. This scarce and unusually complete Edwardian point-of-sale display promoted the popular, mid-range Belgallen and Lismoyne linen lines. Demonstrating the quality of raw and finished product, the case shows flax seed in a small sealed compartment, flax straw, undressed flax, dressed flax, linen yarn, and finally finished handkerchief samples. While making much of their Irishness it is possible that these were in fact American brands. Newspaper advertising of the period shows these handkerchieves carried by department stores across America—D. F. Groves "Ladies', Misses' and Children's Toggery" in the Manchester Democrat, Iowa, offering them "None better, few equal" in December 1913; two years later The Kaufmann store advertising in the Richmond Times Dispatch; "Lismoyne Handkerchiefs of sheer linen. The painstaking care of expert needlewomen is shown in every one. Scores of designs"; and in the same year Benison's (The Ideal Gift Store) drew attention in the Iowa City Daily Press to "Bengallen and Lismoyne Hand Embroidered Linen and Shamrock Lawns—in every new Handkerchief Idea".

        Psmith Journalist

      London: A. & C. Black, Ltd,, 1915. Containing twelve full-page illustrations from drawings by T. M. R. Whitwell. Octavo. Original blue cloth, illustration to front board and spine in black, yellow and white, titles to front board in yellow and black and to spine in yellow. Illustrated with 12 black and white plates. Spine very gently rolled, edges of text block faintly spotted, light tanning and foxing to free endpapers. A bright copy in excellent condition. First English edition under this title, first impression, though somewhat misleadingly listed by McIlvaine under The Prince and Betty, which was first published in New York, 1912, and again in London the same year. All three books have overlapping characters and plot, but are largely different in style. (The London Prince and Betty is a standard Mills and Boon romance.) Psmith Journalist sees the eponymous character abandoned in America by Mike, who is off teaching cricket to the natives, and getting involved in the New York underworld. It is generally regarded as the best book of the three.

        El autómata ajedrecista.

      Imprenta de Fortanet, Madrid 1915 - Torres y Quevedo, Leonardo (1852-1936). El autómata ajedrecista. Extract from Asociación Española para el Progreso de las Ciencias, Congreso de Valladolid, Vol. 2 (1915). 549-556pp. Text diagrams. Madrid: Imprenta de Fortanet, [1915]. 245 x 159 mm. Modern boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Light toning, library stamps on rectos and versos of wrappers. Very good. First Edition and very rare. Torres y Quevedo, a Spanish engineer, invented the first genuine chess-playing automaton, which he completed in 1911 and debuted in 1914 at the Paris World’s Fair. The machine, which Torres y Quevedo called "El Ajedrecista" (the chess-player), pitted the white king and rook against the black king; it was fully automatic with electrical sensing of the pieces on the board and a mechanical arm to move its own pieces. The present paper, published in the proceedings of the Asociación Española para el Progreso de las Ciencias’ Congreso de Valladolid (1915), contains several diagrams illustrating the machine’s electromechanical setup. A pioneer of automation, Torres y Quevedo invented several analog algebraic equation solvers, a radio-control system and a prototype electromechanical calculating machine. His inventions "looked beyond assembly lines to the industrial use of programmed machines. To prove that machines could do jobs that seemed to require mental ability, [Torres y Quevedo] combined electromechanical calculating techniques with his principles of automata, and showed how a machine could be assembled to perform any desired sequence of arithmetic operations" (Eames and Eames , A Computer Perspective: Background to the Computer Age, p. 66).
