        SOUVENIR OF THE GREAT WAR

      1915 - [First World War]. (CHURCHILL, Winston, et al.). "A SOUVENIR OF THE GREAT WAR." Circa 1914-1915. A piece of linen, 19 1/2 by 24 1/2 inches, printed with 28 portraits of heads-of-state and political and military leaders, mostly from England and Commonwealth countries, but also including those from allied countries: France, Belgium, Serbia, Russia and Japan. A central motif representing Britain's pact with Belgium, wherein Britain promised to aid Belgium if her neutrality was breached, is superimposed over flags of the allied nations. "A scrap of paper," the German Chancellor von Bethman-Hollweg's derisive remark about the pact, is printed next to the document with an arrow pointing toward it. But arching above and below the document are the phrases "Liberty & Peace" and "Our Word Our Bond." Portraits of Lord Kitchener, General Joffre, Grand Duke Nicholas, and General French, the top British, French and Russian military leaders, are printed above the pact. The remaining portraits form a border around the cloth; moving clockwise from the right corner, they are: King of Servia [sic], Czar of Russia, General Botha, Gen. Smith Dorrien, Gen. D. Henderson, Gen. Allenby, Col. Sam Hughes, King of Belgium, General Le Man, Lord Landsdowne, Rear Admiral Beatty, Hon. Winston Churchill, Lord Fisher, Admiral Jellicoe, Gen. Douglas Haig, Sir Edward Grey, Pres. Poincare, Hon. A. Bonar Law, Hon. H. H. Asquith, Lord Roberts, Maharajah of Behar, Viceroy of India, King George V, Mikado. Printed in sepia, red, blue and yellow, and mounted on mat board; the cloth is lightly age-toned, and the blue has faded to light grey, but very good overall.

        [Stock Book]: Triangle Distributing Corporation Preferred

      New York: W.N. Perrin & Company. [circa 1915]. Film corporation stock book. Oblong octavo. Green boards with red canvas spine and gilt lettering. Wear to the extremities, staple holes on the front endpapers and light tidemarks, 45 of 50 stock certificates still attached along with the receipts of four others, very good plus. A stock book for the Triangle Distributing Corporation, the distribution arm of the Triangle Film Corporation, the first vertically integrated film production company, founded by D.W. Griffith, Mack Sennett, and Thomas Ince in 1915. The idea was that by producing feature-length films with the industry's premiere talent, including Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., and others, Triangle could charge more per picture. The studio produced several notable films but mismanagement and losses from Griffith's epic Intolerance doomed the venture by 1918. Accompanied by a copy of the book, Dreams for Sale: The Rise and Fall of the Triangle Film Corporation by Kalton C. Lahue. An interesting document from the nascent days of silent films. .

        THE MASTER OF THE WORLD

      1915 - A Tale of Mystery and Marvel. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, n.d. [1915]. Original dark green cloth pictorially decorated in grey, light blue and orange. First Separate Edition, American issue. This is a story about a man's effort to rule the world, by dominating it from the air in his nefarious flying machine "The Terrible." The tale demonstrates the evolution of Verne's cynicism: earlier he had written THE CLIPPER OF THE CLOUDS, in which Robur the inventor tours the world in his magnificent flying machine -- but now Robur the Conqueror is back, seeking world domination instead of scientific discovery.~This tale was initially published in French in 1904, and then in 1911 it was included in Vincent Parke's fifteen-volume WORKS OF JULES VERNE -- its first appearance in English. Sampson Low published the book on its own near the end of 1914, and then Lippincott followed with an American edition (from the British sheets) the following year, as here. Though not mentioned on the title page, there are many illustrations.~This is an attractive copy, in just-about-fine condition (one tiny nick in the spine head, a few minor scratches); unlike the UK edition, the spine lettering is in gold and is thus quite legible -- because the UK was at war but the US was not (yet). In our experience, some of the last Verne titles are among the toughest to find, and this is a good example. Taves & Michaluk V054; Myers 37. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION AND IN THE DUSTWRAPPER. THIS ISSUE WAS ACTUALLY THE FIRST REPRINT OF THE FIRST EDITION PRINTED IN AMERICA. ‘.the absence of the spectacular is the essence of the man and the man’s mind. Truth and its beauty grow more surely from the unfolding of normal life than from any sudden heat of collision. Illumination may sometimes strike through in an unexpected flash, but wisdom is the clear light of steady living.what lies behind the poetry of Robert Frost arises from that deeper level where man engages in the unending struggle to adjust spirit to the world and the world to spirit. It was in NORTH OF BOSTON that he found himself.and in a few quiet poems that follow, the spirit matures. The settings of so many of his poems belong to NORTH OF BOSTON.but the heart of Frost’s poetry is unlimited by place or time.though much of life and its import have tended to come to him.in the garments of country life north of Boston.the substance and meaning of his poetry is human life--moving on, struggling.moving on again.’ The book is vital to his development as a great poet. It remains in all his oeuvre perhaps the most prominent of his books. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Art Deco Fashion Sketchbooks, Four in All, with an additional canvas

      1915-1919 1915 - Containing a total of 80 original watercolors, 43 of which are pure fashion plates straight out of the wardrobe for "Downton Abbey". The fashions and aesthetic are very much of the teens and World War One era when what is known as Art Nouveau was evolving into the more angular, more abstract, more brittle, more self-consciously "Modern", of Art Deco. We can still see and enjoy the lavish and extravagant rococo flourishes of Art Nouveau while also finding traces of the streamlined looks associated with the twenties. The style of illustrations resembles that we find in "Gazette du Bon Ton", the highly sought-after French fashion magazine of the day, and we can see the possible influence of Aubrey Beardsley in the lines as well. Among the best illustrations there is a celebration of the exotic, the Oriental (a particularly Viennese version of Orientalism), the theatrical, and these aspects of the illustrations are redolent of such great illustrators as Dulac, Neilsen and their ilk. In the illustrations with theatrical allusions, conjured up are the glamourous poses by the opera divas of the day, when the likes of Geraldine Farrar or Maria Jeritza could be depended on for the flamboyant gestures that fed the enthusiasm of their huge base of fans. And then there is a small selection of other images, of ships, of an Australian dough boy, of an English cottage, that underscore the versatility of this Ernest. While the full identity of "Ernest" has yet to be established, the fineness and panache of the illustrations far exceeds that of a typical amateur, and it would seem probable that the sketches might have been done for or on behalf of a fashion house or retailer, either as drafts of ideas to be executed, renderings of what designers had already done, possibly to be copied, drafts of illustrations intended for catalogues or other promotional vehicles, or some combination. It would seem unlikely, in other words, that the drawings were merely done for the amusement of the artist. The illustrations are dated, with the earliest album also bearing the title, "Modes of 1915". The existence of this title offers indirect evidence of the artist's non-avocational purpose, in our view.

      London 1915 - These are translations, perhaps best thought of as reworkings of Chinese poems, largely by Rihaku and those contemporary critics who couldn’t praise the accuracy of the translation also couldn’t deny the beauty and significance of the English verse. This copy has the tiny ownership inscription of the early twentieth century book collector, R. M. J. Knaster dated 1918. 30pp sewn into original tan card wraps. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Portrait of Abraham Lincoln

      American Defense Society, Inc, New York 1915 - A very rare original printing plate: a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. A large quarter-length portrait of Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), with his facsimile signature, and the imprint "Copyright" and "Distributed by the American Defense Society, Inc. / New York, N.Y." beneath the image (all in reverse). The President is shown gazing steadfastly at the viewer, his mind set firmly on the course he must follow. The imprint dates the plate to sometime after 1915, when the American Defense Society, Inc. was founded. The American Defense Society, Inc. was founded in 1915 in New York City, in response to the sinking of the Lusitania, as a national "aggressive, non-partisan society having for its sole aim the 'adequate national defense of the United States of America'" ( The American Defense Society: History, Purpose and Accomplishments , 1918). Theodore Roosevelt was Honorary President, and the society's board members included prominent local businessmen and professionals. The plate appears to be an almost same-size version of a chromolithogaphed portrait by Middleton, published in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1864. This chromolithograph was the only print portrait for which Lincoln provided direct advice to the artist: Lincoln suggested he consult a photograph (probably the Mathew Brady studio portrait of February 9, 1864). The original chromolithograph is oval but otherwise the two images are remarkably similar. Cf. Hozer, Boritt and Neely, The Lincoln Image , pp. 138 and 141. Original steel-faced copper printing plate, after Middleton, indistinctly signed in the image. Plate Size: 14 1/16 x 10 5/8 inches; image: 12 1/8 x 8 7/8 inches. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
