        The Extra Day; Association Copy [Elizabeth Belloc's notated Copy, with Laid in signed Postcard from Algernon Blackwood to Belloc]

      MacMillan & Co., London 1915 - London: MacMillan & Co., 1915. First Edition, second state with 2 pages of ads. Laid in postcard from Blackwood to Elizabeth Belloc (daughter of Hilaire Belloc), signed by Blackwood. Association copy, that of Elizabeth Belloc, with her signature and annotations in pencil. Octavo, 358 pp. + ads. Blue cloth, decoratively blindstamped, gilt imprinting. Spine dulled but readable, some page edge soiling, substantially better than Very Good. A remarkably collectible copy of the first edition of seminal fantasy and horror author Algernon Blackwoods's The Extra Day, a tale involving time displacement and three young children. This unique copy belonged to Elizabeth Belloc, daughter of author Hilaire Belloc, and is signed in pencil by her on the flyleaf and dated April 27th, 1921. She has also penciled in a lengthy inscription in Latin on the rear free endpaper, with the cryptic comment, "[fa?]the way to Oxford, - April '21". Equally memorable is the laid-in postcard from Blackwood to Elizabeth Belloc, posted from Sannenmoseh (sic), Switzerland, in which he warmly speaks of a snowbound winter and notes that he's en route to Egypt. Blackwood, author of the such timeless horror stories as The Wendigo and The Willows, strongly influenced later genre greats such as H.P. Lovecraft, who said of Blackwood: ". Of the quality of Mr. Blackwood's genius there can be no dispute; for no one has even approached the skill, seriousness, and minute fidelity with which he records the overtones of strangeness in ordinary things and experiences, or the preternatural insight with which he builds up detail by detail the complete sensations and perceptions leading from reality into supernormal life or vision." Unique in this form. L-41n [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Art of the Moving Picture

      New York: Macmillan Company. 1915. First. First edition. Cloth professionally restored at the spine ends, white painted background on the front board mostly rubbed away, corners rounded a bit, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. A significant association copy, Inscribed: "To Susan E. Wilcox with acknowledgement of a thousand unpayable indebtednesses -- one of which is that she read this book in manuscript from end to end and helped me in all the final patching -- when her own affairs were all too numerous for her. Vachel Lindsay. Dec. 9, 1915. Springfield, Illinois." Beside the inscription is a little drawing of a potted plant captioned "A Daisy For Thee." There are several pencil notes about the text on the rear pastedown, in an unknown hand, presumably that of Wilcox. Wilcox was Lindsay's English teacher at Springfield High School, and to whom (according to his biographer Edgar Lee Masters): "he was attached for life, calling her his best and most understanding friend," and who was probably the first and greatest influence on him as a poet. While Lindsay was both a generous signer, and not averse to penning flowery inscriptions, truly significant associations are not common. The poet's interesting take on the current and future motion picture scene, including a chapter on "California and America." .

      Mass. Woman Suffrage Assn., Nov. 2 [1915., Boston: - Die-stamped metal window hanger, of a blue bird, 12" long from top of head to end of the yellow tail, 3-1/2" wide across breast. With stamp and insignia of Lithographers of America at lower left corner of tail. "Votes for Women Nov. 2" in black along gold ground (birds under belly and tail). "Mass. Woman Suffrage Assn. Gertrude H. Leonard Theresa A. Crowley" in black along outside edge of bird's tail. The bird is on a black perch, facing left, head turning right with beak open. There is soiling and some discoloration to the lower portion of the blue body, and a little rust to the margin. There are four pin holes where the bird was attached to a shade. An extremely colorful piece of ephemera. This piece was part of the advertising campaign to pass suffrage in four eastern states: "The four eastern suffrage referendum campaigns conducted during 1915 constituted a showdown unlike anything that had gone before. New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania had been home to the great pioneers of the woman's rights movement; New Jersey women had been the first in the United States to vote, for a brief period in the nineteenth century. All four were industrial states with large populations, of prime political importance. If these states, or some, or even one of them, could carry for woman suffrage, the national situation would be drastically affected"[Flexner, p. 270]. All four lost.

        The Sea-Hawk (Sea Hawk)

      London: Martin Secker. 1915. First. First edition. Some modest spotting to the boards, lettering rubbed but easily readable, a near very good copy lacking the rare dustwrapper. Along with Captain Blood and Scaramouche, one of a trio of swashbuckling novels that helped to define the genre. This was the basis for one of the great silent adventure films, directed in 1924 by Frank Lloyd and featuring Milton Sills as the Sea Hawk, with Enid Bennett, Lloyd Hughes, Wallace MacDonald, Marc McDermott, and Wallace Beery. Also well-known is the 1940 Michael Curtiz swashbuckler with Errol Flynn, which kept the Sabatini title but used an original story-line loosely based on the exploits of Sir Francis Drake and modified to draw obvious parallels to England on the verge of WWII. .

First American Edition of this gripping account of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14 led by Sir Douglas Mawson to King George V Land and Adelie Land, the almost entirely unexplored section of the Antarctic continent immediately south of Australia. In addition to carrying out geographical exploration and scientific studies, the expedition was to visit the South Magnetic Pole. On one excursion in 1912 Mawson lost one of his two companions, Ninnis, down a crevice together with six of their best dogs, most of their food rations, and some of their best supplies. Forced to use their remaining dogs as food, they began to suffer from symptoms brought on by ingesting husky liver containing extremely high levels of Vitamin A. Mertz finally succumbed following bouts of irrationality and raging. Mawson managed escape being swallowed up by a crevice himself and made it back to their base alone just a few hours after their ship had left. He and six men who had stayed behind to wait for him were forced to spend another winter until December of 1913. In 1916 the American Geographical Society awarded Mawson the David Livingstone Centenary Medal. Spence 773. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
