        Pottery Seller. Albuquerque

      Albuquerque, New Mexico: 1915. Original color crayon drawing. Signed, dated and titled in the image. Daged , titled and described on the support sheet. 8.875 x 5.75 inches. Provenance: Part of a portfolio of original works given to the collector Natalie Williams on June 1, 1937 by Wall. Natalie Williams, was the sister-in-law of the Texas collector N.C. Matthewson of Marshall, Texas, and both were owners of the Made-Rite Company. She a was 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. Translated into English Rhyming Verse.

      Philadelphia: Oxford University Press, October 1915 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

The Series featured terrific pitching with three of the five games ending with scores of 2-1 and another with the score of 3-1. The final game, a comparative offensive barrage, was won by the Red Sox with the score of 5-4.Ruth, a pitcher at the time, didn't pitch, and appeared in only Game One, grounding out as a pinch hitter in the 9th inning. Although Fenway Park was home to the Red Sox, the Boston-hosted games were played at Braves Field to take advantage of the newly renovated and larger park. The program includes two team photos of the Red Sox - one an official image, the other on the rear cover advertising the team in their Stag Wear brand sweaters, both are in blue-toned ink; and both picture a cheerful Babe Ruth in the back row.

        [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.

        Ampio ed interessante carteggio costituito da diciassette lettere della primogenita di Giuseppe Garibaldi e Francesca Armosino di cui otto autografe firmate, le altre dattiloscritte con firma autografa, di cui una diretta all'Avvocato Giuseppe Leti, le rimanenti ai figli dello stesso. Datate tra il 1915 e il 1955 sono scritte da Ardenza e Caprera. Di particolare interesse la nota scritta al verso di una cart. postale fotografica, che recita: "Sono nata a Caprera il 16 febbraio 1867. Questa istantanea mi e' stata fatta qui, nel mio giardino il 22 settembre 1946. Mi dispiace che non si possano vedere i pochissimi fili bianchi che ho fra i capelli che - dato la mia eta' - avrei voluto tutti candidi". Di seguito alcuni tra i passi piu' significativi dell'intero insieme, nel quale si tratta prevalentemente della collaborazione di Clelia ad alcuni scritti in onore dell'Avvocato Leti. "Ho ricevuto tempo fa il bellissimo volume di Suo Padre per il quale tanto, tanto la ringrazio. Era un'opera che ancora non conoscevo...Oggi ho ricevuto le bozze della sua monografia e mi impegno a mandarle quanto prima le bozze a cui Leti tanto tiene. E' una gioia per me poter parlare di Suo padre al quale ero legata da sentimenti di sincera e profonda amicizia. Alla nota biografica che mi riguarda leverei la parte politica, ma saro' piu' precisa in una prossima mia..." (Caprera 10/6/1951). Accluse quattro buste affr. con ind. autografi. Unite due lettere datt. con firma autografa su biglietti da visita completi di buste affr. Clelia Garibaldi fu scrittrice italiana che dedico' tutta la vita alla memoria del padre, curando la casa museo di Caprera, accogliendo ospiti e visitatori e scrivendo le sue memorie.

        Fine full-length original photograph of the noted ballroom dancer in costume, posed on a pedestal holding flowers in each hand linked by a single floral strand. Signed in ink at lower right: "Internationally yours Irene Castle," with "Campbell Studio NY." in pencil below

      1915. Irene and Vernon Castle (1887-1918) were noted American ballroom and exhibition dancers. "The Castles (married in 1911) began to appear as a dance team in New York clubs in 1912. They danced in the musical The Sunshine Girl (1913), gaining wide appeal partly because of the enthusiasm among the upper classes in New York for the new steps of vernacular dance. By 1914 they had become the city's most popular social dance team, appearing in Broadway shows and silent films, and they enjoyed great success with their book Modern Dancing (1914/R 1980). The Castles owned several entertainment centers where they performed and taught social dancing; the dances that they popularized, including the Castle Walk (a variant of the one-step, danced on the toes with stiff knees), hesitation waltz, and foxtrot, merged patrician sophistication with sexual suggestiveness and lack of restraint. Their special brand of social dancing, accompanied by the syncopated rhythms of their music director, James Reese Europe, and his orchestra, helped to popularize black urban music and paved the way for the dance styles and social life of the 1920s. A film of their lives, The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, was released in 1939." Ronald M. Radano in Grove Music Online. A rare image. "Campbell Studios was founded by Alfred S. Campbell (1840-1912) in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Campbell, an early English proponent of art photography, was invited to the United States in 1867 by Napolean Sarony to form a business partnership under the Sarony name. Sarony particularly desired access to Campbell's patented photographic processes... The New York branch of Campbell Studios was one of the active celebrity portrait studios in the 1900s to early 1920s. Its forte was the half length portrait photo of stage or screen stars in fashionable modern dress. It regularly supplied photographs to The Theatre and to movie magazines." Website of Campbell Studios. Image size 225 x 175 mm., overall size 265 x 209 mm. Very slightly worn; small chip to lower left corner, not affecting image; edges very slightly uneven.

        X Rays and Crystal Structure

      London: G. Bell and Sons, Ltd., 1915.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.viii; 228; [1], index; [1], blank; [2], ads. With four half-tone photographic plates plus numerous charts, formulae and diagrams within the text. Bound in publisher's blue cloth, titled in gilt to spine. Internally clean, contemporary ownership to flyleaf 'Ex Libris collectis F. Womack', backstrip sunned and toned, frayed to tips of same, gilt dulled. The Braggs' important summary of their landmark research into crystal structure. Subsequent work in the field proved that the Braggs had 'given the science of crystallography a new basis. Thus the fundamentally different qualities of two forms of carbon, graphite and diamond, are seen to be due to differences in the arrangements of the atoms and in the distances between them. This makes it possible in the laboratory to build new substances and materials based on an arrangement of atoms that will ensure certain desired qualities...' (PMM). For their work on crystal structure analysis, the Braggs received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1915 - the only father and son to have been so honoured.

        VICTORY

      1915 - An Island Tale. London: Methuen & Co., (1915). 4 pp ads dated Autumn 1915 plus 31 pp ads dated "8/5/15". Original red cloth with gilt-decorated spine. First English Edition. This was issued about six months after the New York edition, due to delays related to Conrad's displeasure with Methuen ("It was Conrad's last book with Methuen and one wonders who was more relieved at that, the author, the publisher or the agent" [Cagle]). During this six months' delay, with the Great War underway, Conrad added his wartime preface in which he discusses the "Teutonic psychology" of the character Schomberg. This would be the last of the five Conrad books bound by Methuen in this shell-and-coral binding (three of them red, two green).~The title page does have the comma after "Street," lacking from later copies in the print run. This is a bright copy, just about fine (the merest hint of wear at the upper spine tips -- with virtually none of the usual fading of the spine, and no foxing). Cagle A19.b.1. Provenance: partially-removed bookplate of Dorothy Furman, whose book collection was sold at the Walpole Galleries in 1923. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Imperial Germany and the Industrial Revolution.

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1915. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, single frames to boards in blind, top edge gilt, others uncut. With the dust jacket. Previous owner's initials to dust jacket panels and spine in ink, some faint pencil annotations to the text. A bright copy, endpapers tanned and lightly foxed, complete with the rare dust jacket, spine faded, a little chipped with some loss to jacket spine ends and extremities, flaps pasted to inner boards, overall in very good condition. First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed from the author in ink on the front free endpaper, "Mr W. C. Curtis with the compliments of Mr. Veblen". Published shortly after the outbreak of the first World War, Veblen's fourth book aimed to account for why and how Germany had so successfully dominated the modern industrial market, basing his arguments on business enterprise rather than "national genius". Joseph Dorfman, in his Introduction to the 2006 edition, argues that this is "the finest drama that Veblen ever wrote" (p. xii).

Two volumes, large octavo, with photogravure frontispiece in each, numerous plates (18 coloured, nine folding panoramas), and three folding maps in an end-pocket; signatures at start of first volume; original blue pictorial cloth with silver vignette on front boards; with rare dustjacket to the second volume; a very good set. First edition of this classic account of Australian Antarctic exploration: this copy boldly signed at the start of the first volume by Mawson alongside Frank Hurley and Alexander Kennedy.Mawson's first expedition was an epic of endurance and this, and his subsequent work in the Antarctic, form the most significant basis to Australia's claim to its extensive Antarctic territory. Initially intending to be a member of Scott's party, Mawson decided to command his own expedition and organised the first official Australasian Antarctic Expedition. The expedition left Hobart in the Aurora on 2 December 1911 to systematically explore the areas of Antarctica known as King George V Land and Terra Adelie. Despite extraordinarily harsh conditions the expedition achieved a great deal: over 2000 miles of unknown Antarctic coastline was charted and the scientific discoveries were so extensive that their publication continued well into the 1940s.Mawson's narrative of the expedition is fascinating reading, but most compelling is his account of his epic journey to return to base camp at Cape Denison during which his two companions perished - one falling down a crevasse with the dog team and most of the food, supplies and the tent. His struggle to survive on toxic rations which caused severe stomach cramps, made the soles of his feet detach, and his hair to fall out in clumps, is one of the most extraordinary tales of survival ever told. Provenance: Private collection (Australia) Bindings slightly rubbed and spines just slightly wearing at top and tail, but a very good set. The dustjacket with several defects and tears.

The British edition printed by Nutt preceded this printing, but most copies were not released for several years after publication. This copy with some exceptional and fragile ephemera including an AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED from William Dean Howells, with the envelope addressed and also SIGNED by Howells, to Henry Meigs dated Dec. 1915. In full: "Mr. Frost's letter is like his poetry and of the same gentle impulse. I thank you for letting me see it. Frost will go farther yet in his work." A pencil copy of Frost's letter to Meigs, presumably by him is included; it may well be the only surviving copy of the letter and though difficult to read does support Howells's assertion. Also present are pages 214-224 only of the August 1915 issue of THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY with Edward Garnett's important essay "A New American Poet" as well as a group of Frost's poems, the pages Frost would later refer to as his "American Send-off." Also, two TYPED LETTERS INITIALED and one envelope from Frost's American publisher Henry Holt & Company to Meigs dated 1915 and 1916 about Frost. In part, the earlier letter: "If we publish anything further by Mr. Frost...." The 1916 letter: "Mrs. Frost, who was with him, said the apples came and were all 'Frost-bitten' much to the delight of their children." Two 1915 newspaper clippings including a review and a poem Meigs convinced an Indianapolis paper to print. Meigs signature on endpaper and pencil notes throughout. Occasional offsetting.

        Art Deco chromolithographic perfume & cosmetics catalogue for 1926

      An early edition of this sumptuous chromolithographic beauty catalogue originally introduced at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition by the California Perfume Company. The firm was founded in 1886 by door-to-door book salesman David H. McConnell and would later become Avon. This catalogue includes 31 plates depicting perfumes and air fresheners, soaps, shampoo, skin creams, shaving kits, toothpaste, gift sets, food flavourings and colours, laundry powder, detergent, and household cleaning supplies. Of particular note are the attractive Art Deco packaging designs, a key aspect of the company's success. These catalogues were expensive to produce but extremely successful at promoting the company's products. Between 1915 and 1917 they were bound with screw-back posts so that pages could be added and removed, but after 1924 the use of screw-back posts was discontinued, so that salesmen were required to buy new catalogues. Price lists were originally issued separately, but this was discontinued in 1919, and this catalogue includes product details and prices interleaved on a lighter paper stock. New York: California Perfume Company, [1926]. Oblong folio. Original limp black cloth with fold-over lower cover, bound with metal rivets, title and floral design to upper cover gilt. Chromolithographic title and 31 plates depicting beauty products, each chromolithographic leaf with a numbered cloth thumb-tab, interleaved with informational pages on lighter paper stock. With a pink order form dated October, 1926 loosely inserted. Cloth a little rubbed with light wear at the extremities, the gilt title significantly oxidised and rubbed, spotting, discolouration and some short splits to the title, some spotting to contents not generally affecting the illustrations, lacking the final cloth thumb-tab. Very good condition.

        Signed Mishkin postcard photograph of the celebrated Russian ballerina in The Dragonfly (1915), a solo danced to Fritz Kreisler's "Schön Rosmarin."

      The most celebrated dancer of her time, "[Pavlova's] technique was so perfect that it concealed technique. her arabesque and pas de bourrée have rarely been equaled, and... her line was always impeccable... As an interpretive artist Pavlova probably, even today, remains unsurpassed. She was supreme in roles requiring feminine coquetry and light comedy; she excelled in lyrical and poetic roles in which her fluid, expressive arms and hands were remarkable; and she could be deeply moving in dramatic and tragic roles such as Nikia and Giselle. What made her performances unique, however, was not so much her technical mastery or even her talent at characterization; it was the emotion she poured into her performances, her incomparable stage presence - in short, the power of her personality." The present image is considered "a brief but brilliant desplay of Pavlova's remarkable allegro technique. The swiftness and lightness of her movements were enhanced by gossamer wings and a dress of blue, green, and purple net." Roberta Lazzarini in the International Encyclopedia of Dance Vol. 5 pp. 125-126.
