She was a patroness of artists and an art donor to Texas A & M University.Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region.Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson.Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

        The Trojan Women.

      Philadelphia: Oxford University Press,, October 1915. Translated into English Rhyming Verse. Duodecimo (151 x 129 mm). 112-page manuscript on rectos only, black ink in a neat calligraphic hand, rubrication in red, capitals in various colours, 20 initials attractively illuminated in colour and gilt. Bound for presentation in contemporary blue morocco, spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, gilt ruled border to sides, gilt-rolled board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine sunned, excellent condition. Author's own copy, a unique illuminated manuscript copy of Murray's verse translation of Euripides's Troiades, prepared by the Oxford University Press (US branch) printer James H. W. Althouse, specially bound, and presented to Murray himself, with his illustrated bookplate on the first blank. Gilbert Murray (1866-1957) was the pre-eminent public authority of Ancient Greek drama in the period, whose English translations of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes were hugely influential in popularising the literature in the early 20th century. Murray's dramatisation of the Troiades had been published and performed in the UK some 10 years previously, but this manuscript was produced in tandem with the edition issued in 1915 by the US branch of the Oxford University Press, notably (for this tragedy of those bereft by war) during the early years of the First World War. In May 1915 performances of Murray's Trojan Women and Iphigenia in Tauris were taken to various American colleges by Harley Granville-Barker and his wife Lillah McCarthy. These timely productions helped to shape the interpretation, still strong today, of Euripides's Troiades as the most powerful piece of anti-war work in ancient literature. Francis H. Stoddard in his introduction to the OUP's published version noted: "Never surely can a great tragedy seem more real to us, or purge our souls more truly of the unreality of our thoughts and feelings concerning vital issues, then can The Trojan Women at this moment in the history of the world." The copy has two later Christmas cards signed to Murray from Althouse laid in.

        Die Verwandlung [Metamorphosis].

      Leipzig: Kurt Wolff Verlag,, 1915. Octavo. Original quarter imitation vellum-backed dark blue laid paper boards, spine and front board lettered in black, blue top edge. With the 5 page advertisements to the rear. Pencil inscription to front free endpaper. Extremities lightly rubbed, minor tear to pages 5–6 professionally repaired, and the occasional spot, otherwise a bright, clean copy. First edition, first printing, the uncommon case-bound issue, the state with serif type on the spine and front board (no priority assigned). The publication of this work – the first of Kafka's masterpieces and unquestionably one of the most influential works of fiction produced in the 20th century – was a rather confused affair. Two basic issues were intended: one in wrappers, the other bound in boards. Sales seem not to have been good and after a year or so the numerous copies remaining unsold were stamped on the title pages with the official stamp of the German censors. This copy has no stamp to the title page which suggests it is an early issue.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Of Human Bondage. A Novel.

      New York: George H. Doran, 1915 - Octavo. Original green cloth, title to spine and front cover in black. Slightly rolled, spine very slightly faded, hinges cracked but holding. A very good copy. First US edition, second issue with the misprint "help" corrected on page 257. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "For John Hobart, W. Somerset Maugham. San Francisco. 4 Feb 1939". It is likely that the recipient was John Hobart, the drama critic for the San Francisco Chronicle at the time. Maugham visited America in the early part of 1939: the day before this copy was inscribed, he and his lover Gerald Haxton, a native of San Francisco, had lunch with the American playwright Eugene O'Neill at his home, Tao House, in California, not far from San Francisco.

Finely bound for Asprey in twentieth century morocco, titles and centre tool to spines gilt in compartments, raised bands, pictorial onlay of Scrooge to both boards within gilt fillets, inner dentelles gilt, decorative endpapers, gilt edges. Colour frontispiece and 11 colour plates all printed directly on plate paper with captioned tissue guards and black and white illustrations in the text. Very faint contemporary inscription to half-title, minor wear to gutter at verso of the half-title, an excellent copy. First trade edition. The exact status of this impression is unclear. The bibliographies state that the first impression of the trade edition has the frontispiece mounted on dark green paper and the date 1915 on the title verso. This copy has the frontispiece printed directly on plate paper, supposedly one sign of later issue, yet with the date 1915 on the title verso. However we recently sold a presentation copy inscribed by Rackham dated 1915 with the frontispiece printed directly on plate paper, as here, which suggests that this is an early issue.

        H.R. (Hendrik Rutgers of Wall Street) First edition of Lefevre’s novel about a young man’s rise from obscurity as a bank clerk to New York business mogul headed for the White House, inscribed: "With the best wishes of Edwin Lefevre, Dorset, VT, 7 August 1919." "Edwin Lefevre was known for his close attention to the major players on Wall Street. His books, including Reminiscences of a Stockbroker and The Making of a Stockbroker, have become stock market classics, much sought after for their literary merit, their insight into Wall Street and business history, and the financial observations they contain." (Bauman)

      Harper & Brothers 1915 - Attractively bound in finely woven blue cloth stamped brightly in gold on the front boards and on the spine. Faint ringstain and light flecking to the front boards. Light wear to the top of the spine ends and at the corners. Light leeching of color to the bottom 1.5" of the spine. With the frontispiece protected by its tissue guard. Very clean and tight throughout, printed on good paper, virtually unread. Inscribed in black ink on the front endpaper: "With the best wishes of Edwin Lefevre, Dorset, VT, 7 August 1919." Edwin Lefèvre was born George Edwin Henry Lefèvre in 1871 in Colón, Colombia (now Republic of Panama), the son of Henry Lefèvre (1841–1899), who was for many years the general agent of the Pacific Steamship Company American for Panama; he was born in Jersey, in the Channel Islands and emigrated to the United States in his youth. Mr. Lefèvre sent his son Edwin to the United States when he was a boy and he was educated at Lehigh University where he received training as a mining engineer. However, at the age of nineteen, he began his career as a journalist and eventually became a stockbroker, as well. Lefèvre did work as a broker on Wall Street and was the financial writer for the New York Sun newspaper. He later returned to his home in Vermont where he resumed his literary work, providing short stories for magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and writing novels. Of the eight books written by Edwin Lefèvre his Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is considered a classic of American business writing. The book began as a series of twelve articles published between 1922 and 1923 in The Saturday Evening Post. It is written as first-person fiction, telling the story of a professional stock trader on Wall Street. While published as fiction, it is generally accepted to be the biography of stock market whiz Jesse Livermore. The book has been reprinted in almost every decade since its original publication in 1925, the latest put out byJohn Wiley & Sons in hardcover and paperback in 1994 which remains in print.

      Senefelder 1915 - Raemaekers, Louis: Europe - Satirical Propaganda WWI map: Het Gekkenhuis (Oud Liedje, Nieuwe Wijs) [The Lunatic asylum: Old song, new tune] Senefelder Amsterdam 1915 colour printed map; overall size 44 x 57 cm; plate size 40 x 52 cm. A very interesting and less common satirical map of WWI by famous Dutch cartoonist Louis Raemaekers who, at the beginning of the war, had first hand experience of the cruelty of war which compelled him to create anti-German cartoons. These depicted such poignnat criticism of Germany that the German government demanded of the Dutch to put Raemaekers on trial for compromising Dutch neutrality. Raemaeker was forced to leave the Netherlands and settled in London where he continued his work and produced hundreds of political cartoons. Europe at war: whilst all across Europe a war is raging amongst the various countries, the Netherlands, depicted by a man in a bowler hat, is sitting smoking a pipe but holding a gun in his hand, observing the chaos around him. All the countries are depicted as men except for the Sweden and Norway who are watching with interest, and Sicily and Sardinia who are turned towards each other and are showing no interest at all in the fighting around them. folds as issued; some markings; o/w vg cond. The title of this map translates roughly as: "The Insane Asylum (Old Song, New Tune)" referring to Holland's perspective of the war waging around them. Although Holland is depicted sitting peacefully, smoking a pipe, he is holding a gun and keeps an ever-watchful eye on his neighbor. In contrast, Portugal and Spain are embroiled in their own affairs, ignoring the unrest around them. France and Germany are engaged in a fist-fight, while the British Isles are depicted as a strong, fierce Highlander. Italy and a giant Russia appear to be playing tug-of-war with the Austro-Hungarian Empire. After declaring itself neutral at the onset of the war, the Ottoman Empire accepted military support from Germany, causing the Allies to declare war on the Ottoman Empire. The situation caused disorder within the Empire, which is cleverly depicted here with a Turk cutting his own throat with a sword stamped "Made in Germany." Each country is cleverly depicted as a human figure - all of which are male except for the gentle Norway and Sweden and the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. Published by Senefelder. Issued in brown paper wrappers. Issued folding with several fold separations that have been closed on verso with archival materials. Covers show very minor wear. A bright, clean example.

        [Manuscript in Ink and Pencil]

      Mexico, 1915. Octavo (18 x 12 cm.), 150 pages. Not illustrated. Text in Spanish. A manuscript cookbook, written in a single, very legible hand on unlined paper in a blank notebook. The hand suggests a single recorder, though variations in pencil, ink and size, suggest the recipes were recorded at various moments through time. One hundred forty one recipes fill one hundred eighteen pages of the blank book, with pagination provided by a dark blue rubber stamp in the upper outer corner of each page. Recipes include vol au vent shells; many breads, some French, some Italian and some Mexican. A cake recipe - Gauteau de Eloisa, Italian meringues, Tostaditas, a yeast recipe - Snow Cakes, baked peaches, muffins, both Devil's and Angel's Food Cakes, and much more, including quite a few soup recipes. This is a sophisticated collection with many European entries, but including quite a number of Mexican ones. The selection of recipes, as well as a few annotation leads us to believe this was the collection of a professional cook. A man's ownership signature, "Cutberto Monterrubia" on the front pastedown also suggests, perhaps, professional relationship with food, perhaps a chef or owner of a restaurant. Text block shaken; rear hinge started, but internally clean and text quite legible. Paper-covered boards with a red and black stipple pattern; cloth spine; edgeworn. Front cover decorated with Mexican stamps and cigar labels, worn.

        Youth

      London: I. Narodiczky, Printer, 1915. First edition, one of only about 100 copies. [3]-18 pp. 8vo. Publisher's printed wrappers, staple-bound. Near fine. First edition, one of only about 100 copies. [3]-18 pp. 8vo. First edition of Rosenberg's second book, a fragile pamphlet of 22 poems privately printed in an edition of about 100 copies. One of the most promising literary and artistic talents of the period, Rosenberg was killed at the age of 27 on the Somme in 1918. Youth was the second of three lifetime publications by Rosenberg who raised the money to pay for the printing by selling three of his drawings (see Cohen, Journey to the Trenches: The Life of Isaac Rosenberg, 1890-1918, London, 1975). A spectacular copy of a pamphlet often found with its covers chipped and worn.
