Printed slip tipped-in to title page noting change of title, as issued. Spine rolled and faded, spine ends and tips slightly worn, endleaves mildly foxed, remnants of paper label to p. 1, not affecting text; a very good copy. 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. .

        Edwardian linen manufacturer's shop display

      [Belfast: , c.1915]. Glazed oak-framed display case (419 × 546 × 32 mm). 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).

Tiny tears to the yapped edges, and a modest crease on the rear wrap, a near fine copy. On page 33 is the 17-year old Earhart's senior picture (with a small ink check beside it), with mention that she would attend Bryn Mawr, and that she came to Hyde Park from St. Paul in 1914 (one of six high schools she attended), and the accompanying caption: "Meek loveliness is 'round thee spread." Earhart is mentioned in the class prophecy (as a waitress!), but she otherwise doesn't seem to have been particularly involved in extracurricular activities, presumably because she moved so much.

Als Vertreter eines mystischen Expressionismus - der in den Illustrationen der hier vorliegenden Monographie eine kongeniale Ergänzung findet - galt Skrjabin "als ein die Grenzen der Musik überschreitender, isoliert dastehender Repräsentant neuzeitlicher Musik". - MGG IV, 757.

Meget velholdt ubeskaret eksemplar indbundet med de orig. omslag i smukt privat halvlaeder med guldtryk pa de svagt falmede rygge. Bindene signeret Erik B.

Vaerket er begraenset til den egentlige grammatik, udgiveren har dog fundet det naturligt at indlede med Rasmus Bartholin's tale "De studio lingvae Danicae" fra 1657 ligesom billedet af forskningen i det 17. arhundrede ville vaere ufuldstaendigt, hvis ikke Peder Syv's bog "Nogle betenkninger om det Cimbriske Sprog" fra 1663 var medtaget. Sidste bind indeholder Bibliografi og tekstkritik, registre samt de nye tillaeg skrevet til denne udgave..

      Cuala Press, Churchtown Dundrum 1915 - The book number above relates to three volumes from the Yeats family: "Reveries over Childhood and Youth" from William Butler Yeats; "Plates to accompany Reveries over childhood and youth by W. B. Yeats" and "Early Memories; some chapters of autobiography" by John Butler Yeats [father of W.B.]. All three are from the stable of the legendary Cuala Press a private press, started by Elizabeth Yeats. There is vivid and strong evidence in all three books of how her time with William Morris in London influenced her use of paper, print, font and decoration. "Reveries" is marked (by hand) number 56 of 425 copies published in 1915. "Early Memories" published in 1923 ("the second year of the Irish Free State") is one of five hundred copies printed. It has a preface by W.B. Yeats. Both of these books have some uncut pages. All three of these beautiful small books have board covers and cloth spines. All three have general handling and shelving wear to the covers and the corners. The slim volume of plates contains all the plates to accompany William Butler's "Reveries". The inside front and back covers and frontis and back papers have general marking and age related markings. All three spines are marked and worn. Inside, the pages are thick, thrillingly energetic and beautifully printed. The print is bold and fresh. The plates have foxing to the bottom rims. the black background of the 'memory harbour' plate is torn but the plate itself is not damaged. Some pages have foxing and handling marks, but in major generality the pages are unblemished by age or hand. These books may be owned with complete satisfaction, joy and pleasure. fk [Attributes: Hard Cover]
