        The Masses / November, 1915

      New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1915. New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1915 New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1915. The November, 1915 issue (Volume VII, Number 1, whole number 53), identified internally as October-November. Large Folio, illustrated stapled wraps, 26 pp. Very Good by any periodical standard; as the very inexpensively-produced budget-of-the-heart icon The Masses was, this example is certainly better than very good, by its own standard. Several small spots of soil, very small-scale edge wear; modest toning to the remarkably healthy contents. See scans. Certainly one of the most seminal socio-political American publications of the last 200 years, The Masses was a collection of ideological art, opinion and reporting - usually contributed with little or no compensation - which strongly represented socialist / marxist values, but in a larger sense was representative of labor, women's rights, and radical left issues in general as those were at that time. Famous names of the era often contributed work, but the names of the regulars are themselves all now in history books. The now-timeless publication was shut down by the U.S. Government in 1918 on the basis of postal regulations, after two intense and ideologically-charged trials. Eastman and his sister, Crystal, then started The Liberator to carry on; after The Liberator closed its doors in 1926, The New Masses, under the primary leadership of Mike Gold, carried the radical flag. The Masses, as the first, is also the rarest. Text contributors to this issue of November, 1915 included Eastman, Nina Bull; Floyd Dell; Vachel Lindsay; Marguerite Wilkinson; Louis Untermeyer; Alice Duer Miller; Howard Brubaker; Amos Pinchot; B. Boyeson; Jean Starr Untermeyer; Mary White Ovington; Jeanette Eaton; and Inez Haynes Gilmore. Art was contributed by Stuart Davis; M.A. Kempf; Arthur Young; Maurice Becker; Glenn O. Coleman; John Barber; Elizabeth Grieg; Robert Minor; and K.R. Chamberlain, with Davis executing the front cover, and Chamberlain the rear cover. Check out all of these names.

        Une merveille du genie francais. Notre 75. Par un artilleur. Avec 22 reproductions photographiques et 12 figures schematiques dans le texte et une planche synthetique en couleurs.

      Paris, Aristide Quillet, 1915.. 52 SS. Mit zahlr. schematischen und photographischen Textabbildungen sowie einer farblithogr. Papptafel mit Abbildung des Geschützes und achtteiligen farbig bedr. Papierauflagen. Ill. Originalleinenband. Folio.. Eine von mehreren 1915 erschienenen Lobschriften auf die berühmte "Canon de 75 modele 1897", ein leichtes französisches Feldgeschütz, das durch die Kombination verschiedener neuer Funktionen die Artillerie revolutionierte. Die "französische 75er" war mit über 20 Schuß pro Minute das erste eigentliche Schnellfeuergeschütz; ihr deutsches Gegenstück, die 77-mm-Feldkanone "96", schaffte nicht einmal die Hälfte. Die "Soixante Quinze" oder "75er" war das Rückgrat der französischen Artillerie im Ersten Weltkrieg; ab 1917 wurden in Lizenz gebaute Modelle auch von der US-Armee eingesetzt. Viele Exemplare fanden sogar noch im 2. Weltkrieg Verwendung. - Von besonderem Reiz ist das vorliegende Buch durch die mehrteilige Farbtafel zu Beginn: die einzelnen Bauteile des Geschützes sind als aufklappbare Einzelelemente auf die Grundabbildung montiert; die beidseitig bedruckten Laschen zeigen die Kanone und ihr Bauprinzip im Querschnitt; auch die Granate wird auf diese Weise von außen wie innen dargestellt. - Bindung etwas gelockert; einige minimale Randläsuren; Kapitale leicht lädiert. Insgesamt sauber und ungebräunt; von sehr schöner Erhaltung. Selten. - OCLC 26395058 ("Superimposed plate accompanied by guard sheet with descriptive letter-press").

      London: Heinemann, 1915. London: Heinemann, 1915. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed, rubbing to spine extremities and board corners, some light spotting to the front board -- lacking the scarce dust jacket), SIGNED AND CONTEMPORARILY DATED BY JOHN GALSWORTHY TO HIS SISTER BLANCHE LILIAN SAUTER on the front free endpaper as follows: "B. L. S. / from/ J.G." and dated by him to the page&#39;s upper right corner "May 6, 1915." (Blanche Lilian Sauter also was the wife of the Bavarian-born painter Georg Sauter.) The volume gathers 21 Galsworthy satires, a few of which were previously published. John Galsworthy won the 1932 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his distinguished art of narration which takes its highest form in The Forsyte Saga", making him only the second English, and the fourth British, writer to win the Prize. The King made him a member of the Order of Merit, the most prized award for English men of letters, and his fellow authors made him the first President of PEN. At his death, Galsworthy was England&#39;s most prominent author. (Virginia Woolf had a different view of Galsworthy and on his death noted in her diary that she was glad that "that stuffed shirt" had died.) Signed copies of the book are quite scarce to the market and signed family copies are quite a bit scarcer.

        The Thirty-Nine Steps

      William Blackwood and Sons, Edinburgh and London, 1915 - 1st edition. Hardcover. Signature of the author on a laid-in slip. Beautifully bound by Asprey in full black morocco, gilt title and author lettering on the spine with gilt rules and raised bands. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. The pages are extremely clean, which is most unusual because the cheap wartime stock used in the production of this title invariably suffers to some degree from toning and/or foxing. An absolutely superb example of Buchan's most famous book, this first Richard Hannay adventure is a classic espionage novel, the subject of many screen adaptations, the best surely by Alfred Hitchcock. Unique thus, especially with the author's signature. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Vergangenheit und Zukunft der Sozialwissenschaften

      Munich & Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1915. Munich & Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1915. Octavo (220 × 153mm). Contemporary cloth-backed marbled boards. Boards lightly rubbed. Occasional neat pencil underlining. A very good copy. First edition of an analytical history of the modern social sciences, seeing their germination during the Renaissance and Reformation, and flowering in the eighteenth-century development of the natural law tradition. "According to Schumpeter, the social sciences do not constitute an organic unity, where each social science has its own, determined place. The situation is rather one of chaos, and the different social sciences have often developed by historical accident. Sometimes the development of a social science has been determined by its method and sometimes by its object. The result is that the same problem is often analyzed by several different social sciences. As Schumpeter put it:&#39;There basically does not exist one social science &#150; only different social sciences, whose circles often intersect&#39;" (Swedberg). The work was issued as volume VII in the series of publications by the Academic Social Science Association in Czernowitz, in which Schumpeter was a very active member.
