        Seven Panoramic Photographs of a Parade in Fargo, North Dakota

      - Seven panoramic photographs (six unique, one is duplicated). Each is approximately 10.75" x 3.5". Condition is just about fine. Undated and unsigned but circa 1915. One panorama depicts men in military or military style uniforms marching from the Fargo train station; another shows a downtown intersection with several easily identifiable shops and stores -- one displaying a Marine Corps banner; another shows both paraders and spectators in wagons and early automobiles; and yet another shows a large parade ground with a host of spectators. The duplicated image is of a large, probably public building, awash in flags and bunting with a sizable crowd awaiting the parade. Nice and relatively early images in a panoramic format.

        (Diaries and Scrapbook): Diary and Scrapbook filled with World War I Information and News from 1915

      [No place]. 1915. Octavo. Measuring 8.5" x 7". 132pp. Approximately 44,000 words. Diary and scrapbook from the year 1915 with black cloth boards, "Standard, No.356 Diary, 1915," is stamped in gilt on the front cover. Rear board and spine lacking, front board and several pages detached but present, and light tide marks on the bottom of the pages, good with clear handwritten or typed text.A daily diary and scrapbook from 1915 during World War I, filled with written entries and newspaper clippings. Each page has a sentence or two about the author's day but the rest of the page is filled with information about World War I. The information is highly detailed about when, where, and what is going on with the war though at times it is clear that the author was slightly unlettered. Several words lack certain letters and are spelled incorrectly; otherwise the text is easily understandable. The author writes that they have gotten a larger diary to write war news in but remarks that the war will be over soon, "Here's hoping it won't be long before I'll have no war news to write". The author focuses heavily on Russian and Turkish war news, "Russia has sent troops to Mongolia to quell a revolt," but in general, writes down anything to do with the war, either acquired through newspapers, books, or presumably word of mouth. Some of the articles include, "Torpedo Sinks British Cruiser with 190 Men," "Thirty-four Shrapnel Bullets Hit One Soldier," and various other articles about soldiers dying on both sides. Among the maps is one of the location of the "German Western Battle Line," "Position of Every Army in France," "Gulf of Saros," and "Dardanelles Fort". The last page and entry is for May 8th, 1915 as the rest of the book is missing. While a secondary resource, this is a very extensive recount of war news from 1915 by an unknown but enthralled author. .

        Broadsides]: Two Broadsides Promoting Excursions of the Willing Workers Club

      Willing Workers Club / Press of The New York Age [and] Willing Workers Club / John P. Wharton Electric Power Printer, New York 1915 - Two broadsides. Measuring 6" x 9.25" and 9" x 12". Each with a vignette and several typefaces. Paper of each is toned, small folds, tears or nicks at extremities, small old collection stamp on the backs, otherwise each is near fine. Two broadsides for excursions of The Boyer Lodge, one of the oldest African-American "Prince Hall Lodges" in America, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2012. The smaller and earlier of the two broadsides was printed in 1911 at the press of *The New York Age* at 247 W. 46th St. *The Age* was the most prominent African-American periodical of the time, closely associated with the careers of T. Thomas Fortune and Booker T. Washington. The Willing Workers Club was a sub-group of the Lodge, here described as traveling as a group to Locust Grove the ".most beautiful grove on Long Island Sound and the largest barge afloat, the Starina, have been engaged. Music will be furnished by the famous New Amsterdam Orchestra."By 1915, the 5th Annual Excursion, it had become a successful and popular annual recreational activity, with the club promoting the jaunt to Forest View Grove on the Hudson. This larger broadside, printed by John P. Wharton, Electric Power Printer at 447 Lenox Avenue, has a small woodcut illustration of a side-wheeler steamship. It claims: ".Our many friends who have gone with us before well remember our beautiful sails and lovely time. Music by the Craftmen's Band, J.R. Borroughs Leader. ." Both broadsides list Chairman William M. Stokes, along with several other committee members and information on ticket sales. Interesting view of African-American Masonry, recreation and transportation history ephemera from the early part of the 20th Century. *OCLC* locates no copies of either broadside.

        [Photographs]: Austro-Hungarian Officer's Photographs on the Eastern and Southern Fronts during World War I

      1915-1918. A collection of 182 loose original gelatin silver photographs of the First World War on the Eastern and Southern Fronts between 1915-1918. A few have minor damage, but the vast majority are fine. A few have been removed from an album, but most show no signs of ever having been mounted. All but a handful are captioned in German on the verso. There are a few duplicates, many are in real photo postcard format (a few have been mailed).Taken and/or collected by an officer in the Austro-Hungarian K.K. Landwehr Infanterie Regiment „Hohenmauth" Nr. 30, under the control of Colonel Frantisek Waldek, which saw service in the territories of modern Poland, Ukraine, and Romania until the Russian withdrawal in 1917. They were subsequently transferred to the Italian Front in the Dolomite Mountains. The earliest photographs are 12 images of the war in Ukraine, near the village of Kovel, showing the upheaval of 1915, evacuations of native populations, and the blowing up of bridges and train lines.65 of the images measuring 7" x 5", including a series of images of a visit to the Hohenmauth regiment by the Emperor Karl I. Additionally these images show very strong content relating to mountain warfare, presumably in the Dolomites, and include a series of aerial photographs of the front lines in Volhynia (Wolhynien) dated August 1916; one showing the drifting smoke from an ongoing offensive.Another 105 of the images are in smaller formats, measuring 5.5" x 3.5", including further images of Emperor Karl I, scenes of destruction and devastation on both fronts, cemeteries and coffins, prisoners being detained, trains, field hospitals, a downed barrage balloon and other lighter-than-air ships, airplanes, camps, images of mountain outposts, machine guns and artillery. Exceptional quality, good captioning, and generally arresting images, illustrating less documented areas of the War, from the point of view of the losing side. An impressive grouping. .

        A collection of vintage photographs taken on active service by Warrant Officer (later Lieutenant) Edward James Shalless, a member of the 1st Royal Australian Navy Bridging Train

      - This very small and relatively unknown unit, formed in February 1915, was diverted to Gallipoli and put under the control of the British Army. On 7 August, during the August Offensive, the Bridging Train went ashore at Suvla Bay and built a number of essential piers. The unit remained at Gallipoli until the final evacuation on 18 December; it was based in Egypt throughout 1916, before being disbanded in early 1917. WO Shalless joined the 4th Pioneer Battalion in March 1916. These 54 images (47 of them captioned in detail), some printed ephemera, and a hand-made Xmas card (from 'My Dug Out, Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, 17-11-15'), sent home to his wife and son, are a very rare record of the activities of the 1st RANBT.

        Free Poland. A semi-Monthly. The Truth About Poland and Her People.

      - [Chicago, "Narod Polski" Publishing Co. for the Polish National Council of America], January 6, 1915-September 1, 1917. 4to. 65 issues bound in one volume, contemporary green buckram, spine lettered in gilt; highly illustrated throughout, in good condition generally. This impressive tome contains a good chunk of this well-designed, illustrated and informative American periodical, promoting Polish self-determination during WWI. Free Poland was published from 1914 to 1919 and urged the American or Polish-Amercian public to support Polish independence. The main proponent in the US for the Polish cause was Ignacy Jan Paderewski, the pianist, composer, philanthropist and political activist. Before becoming Poland's prime and foreign minister he played an important role in meeting with President Woodrow Wilson and obtaining the explicit inclusion of independent Poland as point 13 in Wilson's peace terms in 1918, called the Fourteen Points. He seems to have been one of the most important driving forces behind this very rare periodical. COPAC locates the first issue of 1914 only, at UCL. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pancho Villa Recruiting Broadside

      Key Publishing 1915 - Mexican Revolution broadside measuring 14'' x 10.5'' – January, 1915. Evenly toned otherwise a great example on a matted board. The images and message evoke heavy romanticism, and tugged at the ego and greed of adventure prone Americans dripping with machismo. A really gripping piece even to this day.**** One of the iconic names and figures of the early 20th century – the charismatic and brutal revolutionary osmotically solidified himself in the Mexican and Southwestern American psyche. To this day, he is an antihero of sorts to blue collar Mexicans for his fight in the cause of agricultural workers and peasants. ****** “Villa's myth escaped institutionalization in the years after the Revolution because of his powerful, volatile image, which was caught between the government's desire for authority and his heroic status among poor Mexicans. He was still the enemy, and he was not rewarded with official celebrations or monuments, as were many other revolutionaries. Today, of course, it is impossible to miss the public, official monuments to Villa, especially in Mexico City. Why this transformation? O'Malley proposes that Villa's journey to becoming an official myth began during the Cárdenas sexenio. Villa was officially ignored, but the Cárdenas administration ‘created an atmosphere which permitted more positive attention to Villa in the press. That improvement resulted from the administration's condemnation of Villa's enemies, Obregón and Calles, and from the ultra-right's adoption of Villa.’" (Day) [Attributes: First Edition]

Dark blue buckram boards, with black lettering over white labels on the front cover and spine. The book is a near complete run, including 103 issues of the periodical publication issued by W.H. Kerr, under the names "The Christian Educator and God's Defender", "The Truth About God" and "The Truth About God and Life", spanning from its inception in 1904 until its conclusion in 1915. Missing are the very first issue (assumed to be dated December, 1903, which has been torn out) and #8 of "The Christian Educator and God's Defender", as well as #9 of "The Truth About God". The initial title ran for 18 issues until June of 1905, when it was suspended according to Kerr because it was "denied second class postal privileges." The publication was restarted in December of that year under the title "The Truth About God", then changed to "The Truth About God and Life" in April of 1908, running for 86 issues. The publication continued until March of 1915, when it was suspended for the same reason. This unique volume was bound together by the author/publisher W.H. Kerr himself, and was presented to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.," to be held as a perpetual testimonial to his discovery...". Pasted onto the front free endpaper is a handwritten letter from Kerr to the Smithsonian, explaining his reasoning and detailing the publication history of the title. Signed and dated Feb. 7th 1923.Despite its initial name, the periodical was atheistic in its perspective, (though Kerr rejected the term atheist, at the time, for not going far enough) and promoted the viewpoint of his newly established "Church of Humanity", dedicated to freeing the world from the deluded and "idolatrous" beliefs in God. Among the beliefs espoused by Kerr, were that God (and all gods) is a supernatural myth, there is no soul, and that life and consciousness end at death. By the third issue the publication started to include the subtitle that it was "devoted to teaching the discovery that God is a myth like Santa Claus..". Illustrated by occasional b/w photographic reproductions throughout. Binding with some rubbing and bumping to corners and along edges. Scratches to front and back covers. Tail of spine chipped and lightly frayed. Library stickers at the top left corner of the front cover and the tail of the spine. Interior with library bookplate at the interior front cover.

William Henry Kerr (January 20th 1855 - 1932) was a well known and successful local landowner and businessman in the Great Bend, Kansas area when he founded the "Church of Humanity" in 1905 to espouse his beliefs. Although he was gaining increasing numbers of followers nationally and even internationally, many contemporary intellectuals who agreed with with many of his ideas on theology, found him arrogant and egotistical in claiming that he himself had newly "discovered these truths", and declined joining his organization. *Contents:"The Christian Educator and God's Defender", Jan. 1904-May 1905, Issues 1-18 (missing #1 and #8).
