        [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but this voluminous collection of intelligent literary poetry devoted to the cataclysmic conflict appears to be largely unpublished. .

        Zeppelin

      [Mabileau & Co.], Paris 1915 - This LZ2 was built sometime between 1910 and 1914. Five airships of this design operated by Delag, safely carried 35,000 passengers between German cities. This was the first passenger air service in the world. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling in the margins and the image. Small loss upper right edge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Offprint 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. </p><p>First Separate Edition. 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&#146;s Fair. The machine, which Torres y Quevedo called &#147;El Ajedrecista&#148; (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&#146; Congreso de Valladolid (1915), contains several diagrams illustrating the machine&#146;s electromechanical setup. </p><p>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 &#147;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&#148; (Eames and Eames , A Computer Perspective: Background to the Computer Age, p. 66).</p>

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS) to the Vice President of the United States asking for a pardon for one of his employees

      11 Feb. 1915, Detroit - A fine two-page TYPED LETTER SIGNED to the Honorable John R. Marshall, Vice President of the United States, on Ford's personal letterhead regarding an employee whose vindictive wife and mother-in-law keep having him arrested for parole violations. Ford begins by pointing out to Marshall, whose first name was actually Thomas, that he met the young man when he was governor of Indiana. He comments on his quality of character: "He has risen rapidly in our organization and we think a great deal of him. I ask you, who have known the boy, to kindly look into the case, believing with all my heart that he represents the kind of manhood that is a credit to our state and our nation, and I believe him fully entitled to a complete and absolute pardon. I am not taking this matter up with you in any perfunctory way, - I know this young man personally, and his case represents an opportunity for doing constructive good to manhood which, I believe you will agree with me, is one of the best and most genuinely satisfactory things we can accomplish in life." Ford adds this typed P.S. after his SIGNATURE: "I am sorry to trouble you about such a matter, when affairs of state demand so much of your time, but having met you and appreciating your sense of and desire for justice for brother men, I feel privileged to call this to your attention." Marshall, incidentally, coined the saying: "What this country needs is a good five-cent cigar." Dark pencil notation in upper left margin. Wrinkling to each page but still a fine presentation. Normal creases from folding. Very Good with fine content [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Nearly Very Good, cloth mostly split along front spine edge, first few pages almost detached from text block, piece of scotch tape at top rear spine edge. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Votes for Women Playing Cards

      New York: National Woman Suffrage Publishing Company. [ND but ca. 1915]. "Votes for Women" Playing cards, a complete deck including the joker, box opened but cards lightly used. 53 cards (52 + joker) in original purple decorative box. 2 1/4" x 3 1/2". Cards in original glassine inside box; box shows some rubbing and soiling, has minor tears at top of opening with remnant of revenue tax stamp, original glassine wrapper around cards inside box lightly rumpled and chipped, preserved with additional wrap around of mylar. A complete deck as issued, and quite unusual thus. Each card repeats the image on the box in purple, black and white of lady justice holding balanced scales against a rising sun (motif often used by suffragists, especially in New York) on the back of the card. The joker has the lady justice image on both sides. The Ace of Spades has a superb decorative emblem of the herald figure blowing a trumpet with the legend "Votes for Women". Housed in custom-made purple box. & The NAWSA sold decks of playing cards with several different designs and colors for the benefit of their association. Their use of common household items, like playing cards, to further their cause, was a masterstroke of public relations. The colors purple, white and green originated with the Women&#39;s Social and Political Union in the British suffrage movement to symbolize loyalty, purity and hope. The use of these colors was transferred to the American scene by Harriot Stanton Blatch (daughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton) after returning from her work with Emmeline, Christable and Sylvia Pankhurst, leaders of the militant suffrage movement in England. The use of the colors purple, white and green was concentrated primarily in New York where Blatch set up her own, more radical, suffrage organization, The Women&#39;s Political Union. These colors also were used in the neighboring states of New Jersey and Connecticut. As these states had strong suffrage organizations, these colors also became symbolic along with the more traditional American color, gold. Complete decks of cards are rare, although single examples turn up with some frequency. This set, in the original box, clearly has stayed together since issue in 1915- 16!& In Selling Suffrage, Margaret Finnegan makes several key points about the use of suffrage goods in the drive to win the vote for women. She points out that the early (pre-1910) use of commodities sent a message of defiant unity and confidence, while after 1910, the goods legitimized the movement. Further, they neutralized fears and anxieties about the effects of votes for women by making the goods themselves less threatening. The playing cards are a fine example of this. Not the least of their effects, the goods raised money for the movement. Finnegan, Selling Suffrage, pp. 111-139.

        Clowns Courage / The Scarlet Fairy Book / journalist John Reed copy (Ten Days that Shook the World)

      Richard G. Badger, Boston 1915 - Boston: Richard G. Badger, 1915. First Edition. Signed and inscribed, with some tongue-in-cheek it would appear, by author Scarlet on the flyleaf to journalist/social activist John Reed, with whom he was apparently friends. Yes, that's the John Reed of the Warren Beatty film "REDS", and the one known more famously in his own time for his activist history of the October 1917 Russian Revolution, "Ten Days That Shook the World", and his avid participation in Max Eastman's controversial socialist publication, The Masses. Maybe his association with.Patrick Scarlet?.is a clue to what they hey this book is all about. 12mo, red cloth boards with gilt imprinting, 133 pp. Good plus; a fairly serious spine abrasion (see scan) and a variety of soil and wear spots. Firmly bound, however. A completely baffling little book. An enigma wrapped in a .etc. Ostensibly a series of fairy tales, but it isn't, and that's so by its own tongue-in-check admonitions near the front. "Undergraduate Rubrics in part from the Magazine of the University of ***", and "Being the Scarlet Fairy Book for Wise Children, Sick People and the Half-Grown. A breviary of rising inflections for the Disillusioned, for the Compleat Sinner, a whimsey-missal and a petty psalter for the wee small voice", and "These Grotesques made in the fellowship of them Who put Gargoyles on their Churches inscribed to the companionable Shade of that Ancient who wearied of hearing Aristides called The Just". Okay. that said, "Patrick Scarlet" is clearly, to me, pseudonymic, but he was just as clearly, under some name, someone known to Reed. Unless this is some kind of code book, this is a series of (too much energy today?) iconoclastic and linguistically over-manic "Fairy Tales" by a literature major under the influence - of something. But there IS a smattering of local-scale social satire, and, since most entries involve more-or-less maidenly characters, this could be a) an account of collegiate conquests, b) an account of attempts at same, or c) tips on how to do that. Or not. You tell me. Oddly, the book is widely available as a new (well, 2008) download from a variety of sites, but no one seems to have a clue what it is or who Patrick Scarlet was. He did know John Reed. Since the book was published in Boston, and Reed attended Harvard, perhaps "Scarlet" was a classmate. But the 1915 date is a bit late for that. And the 1916 inscription date implies someone close to Reed at that time. Boardman Robinson ? Eugene O'Neill ? Or even, masquerading as a male friend, perhaps his love, Diane Keat. I mean, Louise Bryant ? Or, just a nobody, to us ? What the heck is this thing ? Does anyone recognize the handwriting of Patrick Scarlet ? Provenance provided to purchaser.
