Amongs his earliest work Rudolph Ruzicka (1883-1978) prominent Czech-born American wood engraver, etcher, illustrator, typeface designer, and book designer. Ruzicka designed typefaces and wood engraving illustrations for Daniel Berkeley Updike's Merrymount Press, and was a designer for, and consultant to, the Mergenthaler Linotype Company for fifty years. He designed a number of seals and medals, including the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and the Dartmouth Medal of the American Library Association. Ruzicka emigrated to the United States from Bohemia at age ten, living first in Chicago where he took drawing lessons at the Hull House School before becoming an apprentice wood engraver. From 1900 to 1902 he attended further classes at the Chicago Art Institute. In 1903, he moved to New York to work as an engraver at the American Bank Note Company. In subsequent years he attended classes at both the Art Students League of New York and the New York School of Art. In 1910, Ruzicka received his first major art commission from System magazine. Many exhibitions followed,including such venues as the Societe de la Gravure, Paris, the Grolier Club, and the Century Association, New York. In 1935 Ruzicka was awarded the Gold Medal from the American Institute of Graphic Arts, and in that same year began work with the Typographic Development staff at Mergenthaler Linotype Company, for which he was to produce typeface families. He moved to Massachusetts in 1948 and eventually settled in Vermont. Vassar holds a major collection of his work and ephemera [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Sam Steele. Original Signed Studio Portrait

      Winnipeg: Campbell's Winnipeg: Campbell's 1915. (Photograph) Very good. Original Photograph tipped into studio folder glassine guard. Folder: 10 7 / 8" X 6 1 / 4" Image: 6 9 / 16" X 3 3 / 8". Original Signed Studio Portrait Col. Sam Steele. Signed: S B Steele 5th Jan 1915 Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919. Handwritten on reverse by Harwood Steele, Son of Sam Steele: "17" Col. S B Steele 'Staff in Blue' Winnipeg 1914" Major General Sir Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him..

        [Manuscript]: "The Twilight of the Manikins: Verses Written during the Great War"

      New York. Feb. 1915- Feb. 1919 [with later corrections and manuscript emendations]. Octavo. Red cloth. Over 200 pages of manuscript war poetry written in a publisher's "dummy" volume (that is, a bound volume issued with only blank pages, the book title "The Long Gallery" by Eva Lathbury and publisher Henry Holt stamped on the cloth). Trent hand-numbered the 208 pages of poetry, the verses almost entirely in holograph (a few printed pieces pasted in and amended). The volume shows a great deal of work with portions cut and pasted in later holograph (and occasionally dated) corrections and edits, etc.Trent was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1862, the son of a surgeon in the Confederate Army of distinguished Virginia ancestry. In 1880 he began studying at the University of Virginia where he became the editor of the Virginia University Magazine. He did post-graduate study at Johns Hopkins University, after which he accepted an offer to teach at Sewanee, The University of the South where he became a professor of English and the acting professor of history from 1888 until 1900, and from 1893 was dean of the academic department. He founded and edited The Sewanee Review (now the longest continuously published literary quarterly in the U.S.). He also created the Sewanee Historical Society at the University of the South. In 1900, he became professor of English literature at Columbia University where he devoted himself to the study of Daniel Defoe. He edited the Cambridge History of American Literature, and published many books on literary historical subjects, many Southern, including William Gilmore Simms and Robert E. Lee.Trent published five of the earliest poems represented here from 1915 in The Fatherland and The Texas Review, but this voluminous collection of intelligent literary poetry devoted to the cataclysmic conflict appears to be largely unpublished. .

        The Log of the Snark

      Macmillan Company, New York 1915 - 487+[5 ad] pages with 20 photo plates, including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 3/4")issued in light blue cloth decorated and lettered in gilt. Advance review copy with circular perforated stamp stating such on title page. First Edition. Charmian Kittredge London (November 27, 1871-January 14, 1955) was Jack London's second wife. After divorcing Bess Maddern London in 1904, London married Charmian Kittredge the following year. Biographer Russ Kingman called Charmian "Jack's soul-mate, always at his side, and a perfect match." She was the author of several books about her life with Jack London: The Log of the Snark, Our Hawaii and The Book of Jack London. The last is considered by scholars to be an important but flawed source of biographical information on London: Clarice Stasz calls it "an uneven account that omits Jack's illegitimacy, yet has surprisingly frank information nonetheless concerning his personality." Their relationship became the subject of a book, Clarice Stasz' American Dreamers. The couple had no children who survived them. One died soon after being born, and another pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Shortly after the death of Jack London, Charmian had an affair with Harry Houdini. A PBS source cites an Houdini biographer, saying: Most of the evidence of their affair, convincingly reconstructed by Houdini biographer Kenneth Silverman, comes from brief entries in Charmian’s diaries. They saw each other over several weeks early in 1918 while Charmian was living in New York, where Houdini was starring in the patriotic World War I extravaganza, "Cheer Up." Charmian wrote that after they saw each other a few times, Houdini made a "declaration" that "rather shakes me up." They became intimate a short time later. She wrote that one visit by Houdini had "stirred me to the deep," and that he apparently felt the same, declaring, "I’m mad about you," and "I give all of myself to you." Throughout, she refers to him alternately as "Magic," her "Magic Man," or "Magic Lover." As intense as it apparently was, their attachment did not last long. Charmian, the "New Woman" whose marriage to London had included open sexual experimentation, never stopped seeing other men. Condition: Minor wear at extremities, Embossed ownership stamp also on title page, small number and letter 4A at front end paper corner; else near fine without jacket.

        The Tommy Alphabet Valentine Toy Books. Dolly Series.

      Dundee, London and Montreal: Valentine & Sons Ltd., 1915. First Edition. Wraps. Good Plus. Scarce shaped-book with three-dimensional plaster head of General Haig on the cover. 24 by 8.5 cm (at its widest). Unpaginated, twelve leaves, plus card binding. No copies found on either OCLC FirstServe or COPAC, nor in the British Library catalogues! The text is an ABC, with several lines of rhymed couplets for an item designated by the letter. All the items relate in some way to the war-effort, and everything is intended to strike a patriotic chord. There are two letters per page. On the verso are the poems, and the facing rectos illustrate the particular object, two per page. These illustrations are black, white and red. Above all else, it is Haig's plaster head, sitting atop a chromolithograph of the rest of his body in uniform, that distinguishes this toy book, though. The rear cover shows the back of Haig in uniform. The plaster has some minor abrasions and loss, as typical of plaster. Scattered light foxing within. The last three leaves are limp by the head, with some minor loss of the paper, and the rear cover appears to have been repaired and reinforced inside by the head.

        "Könige".

      . Aquarellierte Lithographie, auf feinem Japan, auf Untersatz montiert, dort signiert, betitelt und als "Orig. Litho. Handkoloriert" bezeichnet. 29,3:20,7 cm. Etwas verbräunt und im unteren Bereich minimal knitterig. - Sehr selten! Die Signatur "N. Wächtler" bezieht sich auf das frühe Pseudonym der Künstlerin.. Trotz großer Widerstände seitens ihres Elternhauses, das sie schon im Alter von 16 Jahren verließ, absolvierte die Künstlerin 1915-1918 ein Studium an der Dresdener Kunstgewerbeschule, parallel ab 1916-1919 Mal- und Zeichenkurse an der Dresdner Kunstakademie. Ihr Interesse galt schon zu Beginn den avantgardistischen Kunstströmungen, Dadaismus und Expressionismus. Nach der schwierigen Ehe mit dem Maler und Opernsänger Kurt Lohse, der ein liederlich ausschweifendes Leben führte, so daß sie in permanenter Armut lebte, und mehrfacher Trennungen wurde sie zeitweise obdachlos. Ein dadurch bewirkter seelischer und körperlicher Zusammenbruch führte 1929 zu einem mehrwöchigen Aufenthalt in einer Nervenheilanstalt. Hier entstanden die berühmten "Friedrichsberger Köpfe", Porträts ihrer Mitpatientinnen, die ihr große Anerkennung in der Kunstwelt, aber kaum Verkäufe einbrachten. Anschließend schaffte sie die endgültige Trennung von ihrem Ehemann. Es entstanden nachfolgend Bilder des Hamburger Hafens, des Arbeiter- und Prostituiertenmilieus sowie Selbstbildnisse. Finanzieller Erfolg stellte sich allerdings noch immer nicht ein, so daß sie weiterhin in wirtschaftlicher Not lebte. Nach der Rückkehr in ihr Elternhaus nach Dresden und zunehmender seelischer und körperlicher Zerrüttung ließ ihr Vater sie 1932 aus Unverständnis und Hilflosigkeit in die Landes-Heil- und Pfleganstalt Arnsdorf bei Dresden einweisen. "Schizophrenie" wurde kurzerhand diagnostisiert. 1935 wurde sie in der Frauenklinik Dresden im Rahmen der nationalsozialistischen Eugenik, des "Erbgesundheitsgesetzes", zwangssterilisiert. Völlig gebrochen erlischt nahezu vollständig ihre Schaffenskraft. 1940 wurde sie im Zuge des nationalsozialistischen Programms "lebensunwertes Leben" in die Landes-Heil- und Pflegeanstalt Pirna-Sonnenstein deportiert und ermordet.

        [Manuscript]: "The Twilight of the Manikins: Verses Written during the Great War"

      New York. Feb. 1915- Feb. 1919 [with later corrections and manuscript emendations]. Octavo. Red cloth. Over 200 pages of manuscript war poetry written in a publisher's "dummy" volume (that is, a bound volume issued with only blank pages, the book title "The Long Gallery" by Eva Lathbury and publisher Henry Holt stamped on the cloth). Trent hand-numbered the 208 pages of poetry, the verses almost entirely in holograph (a few printed pieces pasted in and amended). The volume shows a great deal of work with portions cut and pasted in later holograph (and occasionally dated) corrections and edits, etc.Trent was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1862, the son of a surgeon in the Confederate Army of distinguished Virginia ancestry. In 1880 he began studying at the University of Virginia where he became the editor of the Virginia University Magazine. He did post-graduate study at Johns Hopkins University, after which he accepted an offer to teach at Sewanee, The University of the South where he became a professor of English and the acting professor of history from 1888 until 1900, and from 1893 was dean of the academic department. He founded and edited The Sewanee Review (now the longest continuously published literary quarterly in the U.S.). He also created the Sewanee Historical Society at the University of the South. In 1900, he became professor of English literature at Columbia University where he devoted himself to the study of Daniel Defoe. He edited the Cambridge History of American Literature, and published many books on literary historical subjects, many Southern, including William Gilmore Simms and Robert E. Lee.Trent published five of the earliest poems represented here from 1915 in The Fatherland and The Texas Review, but this voluminous collection of intelligent literary poetry devoted to the cataclysmic conflict appears to be largely unpublished. .
