        Residence of Herman Shainwald 2800 Pacific Ave. San Francisco, Cal. [cover title].

      [San Francisco, 1915]. - Oblong 4to. pebbled brown calf, gilt single rule border on upper and lower covers, title on upper cover, gilt inner dentelles, floral patterned silver and purple Aesthetic movement endpapers, a.e.g. 21 silver print photographs, 7.5" x 9.5" on larger sheets. A handsome house portrait album documenting the vast and richly decorated Georgian revival home at 2800 Pacific Ave during its ownership by prominent early 20th century Bay Area real estate broker Herman Shainwald. Known as "Herbst Manor," the house was designed in 1899 by English-born architect Ernest Coxhead, who, in addition to a number of other elaborate homes, also designed Episcopal Churches throughout California. Shainwald and his wife Matilda bought the house in 1906, following the death of its first owner, Sarah Spooner, who was a wealthy art collector originally from Philadelphia. Eight years later they sold it to John McGregor, the president of Union Iron Works. The house's exterior, pictured on the first two leaves, combines different architectural palettes to create a "serene particularity on one hand and an exuberant baroque plasticity on the other" (Longstreth p. 197). The balance of the photos depict the often lavishly appointed rooms. The house has recently been on the market, and remains one of San Francisco's most expensive properties. REFERENCES: Longstreth, Richard W. On the Edge of the World, p. 197. CONDITION: Very good, moderately rubbed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Adventures of Chunder Loo

      Illustrated by Lionel Lindsay. Sydney: Blyth & Platt, 1915 Quarto, illustrated card boards (lightly creased), cloth spine, light handling marks but overall a very good copy of one of Lionel Lindsay's rarest books. The adventures of Chunder Loo is a collection of humorous verses penned by O'Ferrall and illustrated by Lindsay first published as advertisements for Cobra Boot Polish in The Bulletin  in the early twentieth century. Proving to be very popular, Blyth & Platt (owners of Cobra Boot Polish) published them in book format in late 1915, the book was printed by John Sands in Sydney and entered into legal deposit in 1916. Each page stands alone as its own witticism, however during the course of the series a journey evolves as the shoe shiner Chunder Loo of Akim Foo sails on The R. M. S. Cobra along with his companions Terrier Dog and Koala Bear. The trio travel through Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and the gold fields of Western Australia, before sailing via Colombo and Suez to cruise through Italy, Spain and then arriving in London, all the while demonstrating the advantages of the Cobra brand of boot polish. While in London they encounter a 'militant suffragette', and, dressed in uniform are inspected by Kitchener before they depart for the Great War, where they spend about a third of the book's contents in a variety of services. Rare and in very good condition.

        Photo Album]: Hunting and Fishing in New York State 1915-1923

      - Oblong octavo. String tied flexible cloth with "Photographs" stamped in blind on the top board. Modest edgewear on the boards, near fine. Contains 141 mostly sepia-tone gelatin silver photographs. Images are various sizes ranging mostly between 2" x 3" and 3" x 3.5", with several larger, mostly mounted between three and six to the page and largely captioned. Some modest fading on some of the images, one with a touch of damage, but most are near fine or better. A well-photographed album of rural images, the first page devoted to prize cattle (a few other images of cattle and horses appear) but about half of the images are devoted to hunting, trapping, and fishing in the Adirondacks, mostly between 1922 and 1923, with a few others from earlier dates. The hunting images show catches of fish, fox, skunks, muskrats, deer, mink, as well as gun-toting men, and several of hunting dogs (all it seems named "Uncas"). Most of the rest of the album is devoted to images of attractive and cheerful younger people on boats or on trips in automobiles, mostly to rural areas (with Uncas present!). An engaging, interesting, and largely subject specific group of images.

        Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane.

      Vieweg & Sohn, Braunschweig 1915 - 8vo (210 x 136 mm). iv, [2], 94 pp., 20 illustr. in text. Three-quarter cloth over marbled boards, with titled paper label and shelf-mark label to spine, interior clean and unfoxed, library ink stamps to title-page. Provenance: Handels-Hochschulkurse der Stadt Nürnberg. ----- DSB XIV, 217; Norman 2192 (journal issue). - First edition in book form of the famous work on the continental drift, the mainwork of Wegener. The text appeared first in Petermanns Mitteilungen 1912. Later editions appeared in 1920,1922 and 1929; foreign editions after 1922. Wegener began his university career at the physical institute of the University Marburg in 1909, where he worked until 1919. After his habilitation in the fields of astronomy, meteorology and cosmic physics in Marburg, he became the director of the local observatory in 1910 and in parallel worked as a lecturer at the physical institute. Wegener became widely known for his pioneering theory on continental drift, which he published in two papers in 1912, both entitled "Die Entstehung der Kontinente" (The origin of continents). Although it was thought ludicrous at first, it has since been confirmed and is now quite acclaimed. In 1915 he published a book-length extension of his work on continental displacements now entitled "Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane." Because of the First World War, Wegener's book went unnoticed outside Germany. In 1922, however, a third (revised) edition was translated into English, French, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish, pushing Wegener's theory of continental drift to the forefront of debate in the earth sciences. The present first edition is much rarer than the journal issue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Dreamer of Dreams

      London, New York, Toronto: Hodder & Stoughton, 1915. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Dulac, Edmund. Quarto size, 189 pp., 6 color plates. A breathtakingly lovely example of the incomparable work of Edmund Dulac (1882-1953), who truly needs no introduction; he was the only illustrator of his day on a par with Arthur Rackham and was known for his exquisite colors, oriental influence and versatility in his artistic endeavors. This book, Hodder and Stoughton's featured "New art gift book" of the year for 1915, is immediately recognizable for its frontispeice illustration of the snow maiden accompanied by white bears, which "makes one catch one's breath at its sheer beauty". The beautiful frontispiece was a supplement page in Hodder and Stoughton's "Christmas Bookman," which also featured a photograph of Dulac, a review of the book and its illustrations and several lavish ads. The pictures were described as "vivid and beautifully imaginative paintings."___DESCRIPTION: Original grey cloth with gilt lettering and sword design of the title-page in navy blue, similarly decorated at the backstrip, title-page printed in olive-green and grey, six colour plates mounted on tan-grey art paper, framed with three-rule green borders, tissue guards with green captions; quarto size (25.4 by 18.5 cm), pagination: [i-viii] 1-181.___CONDITION: This volume can almost be called fine; the binding appears to be fresh out of the binder's shop, with straight, unrubbed corners, a strong square text block with solid hinges, and the gilt on the front board exceptionally bright; the plates and tissue guards bright and complete, and the volume free of prior owner markings; fine except for some minor sun-toning to the backstrip and very faint scattered foxing. Lacking the rarely seen dust jacket, this copy is near fine, difficult to come by in such good condition.___CITATION: Hughey 38, true first edition, in grey rather than blue cloth, with gilt lettering to the upper board, 181 pp. vs. 177 pp. of later editions.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

        Vernacular Photograph Album 1911-1919: Hunter College; Catskills, Peach Lake, Coney Island, New York [SIGNED]

      [No Publisher] [1915], [New York] - Oblong contemporary photograph album 7 X 10 1/2 inches; Bound Black Leather over soft boards with black craft paper leaves; Initials: M.W.C. stamped in gold on cover. More than 300 black and white photos ranging in size from 2 x 3 inches to 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Some glossy prints but majority are matt finish; tipped in or held by contemporary photo corners. Very few notations, but many photos are dated in ink at lower corner. Some photos have been signed by subject, and a very few indicate the individual venue: Sullivan County, Rock View, Peach Lake (New York). Although never specifically indicated, one individual (a young woman) seems to stand out as the subject of the collection along with another individual Mary A. Powell who appears to be a dear friend. There are a great many photos of groups of young women who may be classmates at a women's college. One professional photo is of Elizabeth Vera Loeb (Stern) (and signed by her) who began teaching at Hunter College in 1915 and went on to an illustrious career with that institution, Ms. Loeb Stern established the first Hunter College Theater and the Hunter College Concert Bureau; and established the first credit courses in dramatics, including the master's program in speech and dramatics at Hunter College. Two additional photos of other young women, taken in the same setting as the photo of Loeb, may be photos of teachers in the early days of Hunter College. The majority of the photos appear to be family and friends in summer recreational activities: tennis, golf, canoeing, swimming and picnicking; as well as visits and excursions to popular vacation sites such as photos dated 1917 from Coney Island and Peach Lake 1919 (possibly the Bloomerside resort). Some photos show subjects in coats, hats and furs suggesting Fall weather. The photos are crisp and clear. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Oyster Bay 1915 - Typed Letter Signed, to R. M. Johnston, Oyster Bay, November 24, 1915. 1 p., 6 1/2 x 7 3/4 in. "the English are most sensitive about my having stated that they had failed to do what they ought to have done, thanks to their lack of preparedness in advance; and this although I stated at the same time that we would have done infinitely worse." Transcript"I feel as gloomy as you do; and I am glad you are starting that magazine. I enclose three dollars for it. I look forward eagerly to seeing your articles in the Tribune. You may be amused to know that the English are most sensitive about my having stated that they had failed to do what they ought to have done, thanks to their lack of preparedness in advance; and this although I stated at the same time that we would have done infinitely worse. Sincerely yours, / Theodore Roosevelt"Historical BackgroundIn the November 1915 issue of the Metropolitan Magazine, Theodore Roosevelt published "The Duty of the United States to Its Own People," in which he severely criticized British preparedness. "England at this moment," Roosevelt wrote, "affords a lamentable example of the punishment that will surely in the end befall any nation which fails to take its duties seriously. Relatively to her population, she has put an army of utterly inadequate size into the field. More lamentable still, she has utterly failed, even with a year during which to work, in the effort to produce the artillery and munitions of war which will make her able to be as effective as her German opponents or her French allies."[1]The former president strongly supported the Allies in World War I and was a sharp critic of the Wilson administration who he accused of failing to fulfill treaty obligations and failing to prepare for the war. He also criticized "hyphenated Americans" from Ireland and Germany whom he felt put their homeland's interests above America's.Harvard Professor and military historian R. M. Johnston published eight articles on defense in the New-York Tribune between November 21, 1915 and January 9, 1916. He considered the "problem of national defence as a military, not as a political proposition. And this distinction is vital." The ocean no longer provided an effective defense, and America's slow navy was incapable of protecting the nation. He emphasized the importance of creating and maintaining a strong army. The titles of some of Johnston's articles reveal both his subject and his perspective: "Shall Politics Keep Our Army Ineffective?"; "War Creates Grave Perils for U.S. to Meet"; "Small, Highly Trained Army Is Our Best Defence"; "Great Waste Threatens in Preparedness Plan"; and "Immediate Scientific Defence Action Necessary."Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) was born in New York City. He graduated from Harvard University and attended Columbia Law School. He served in the New York State Assembly from 1882 to 1884, and as president of the New York City Police Commissioners in 1895 and 1896, then as Assistant Secretary of the Navy from 1897 to 1898. After service in Cuba during the Spanish-American War, he won election as Governor of New York and served from 1899 to 1900. He ran as Vice President to William McKinley in 1900 and became President in September 1901, when McKinley was assassinated. He was reelected in 1904. A prolific author and naturalist, Roosevelt was instrumental in the Progressive movement of the early twentieth century, helped preserve the nation's natural resources, and extended American power throughout the world.Robert Matteson Johnston (1867-1920) was born in Paris, the son of an American physician. Educated in England, he returned to America to teach as assistant professor at Harvard University in 1908. He organized a Military History Session for The American Historical Association's 1911 annual meeting, and he convinced Theodore Roosevelt and several army officers to participate. At the 1912 meeting, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Assistant Secret. (See website for full description)

        The Good Soldier

      John Lane. New York & London: John Lane Company; John Lane, 1915, 1915. Octavo. with the 16 pp. of advertisements. First edition, first impression. The novel is a masterpiece of modernist technique, using an unreliable narrator to piece together a complex plot of sexual intrigue and betrayal through elaborate time-shifts. It is set just before World War I and chronicles the tragedy of Edward Ashburnham, the soldier to whom the title refers, and his own seemingly perfect marriage and that of two American friends. The novel is told using a series of flashbacks in non-chronological order, a literary technique that formed part of Ford's pioneering view of literary impressionism. Ford employs the device of the unreliable narrator to great effect as the main character gradually reveals a version of events that is quite different from what the introduction leads the reader to believe. The novel was loosely based on two incidents of adultery and on Ford's messy personal life.The novel's original title was The Saddest Story, but after the onset of World War I, the publishers asked Ford for a new title. Ford suggested (sarcastically) The Good Soldier, and the name stuck. This copy has been smartly rebound in half morocco and cloth with raised bands on the spine. Rebound without the half title page. This is a very smart rebind and makes for a NEAR FINE copy of this rare title. . Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1915.

        ohne Titel, 1958

      - Bryan Wynter, London 1915 - 1975 Penzance , Cornwall, ohne Titel, 1958, Kohlezeichnung, Rechts unten signiert und datiert , Blattgröße: 51 x 68,5 cm Bryan Wynter sollte ursprünglich nach Zürich gehen um dort die Geschäfte seiner Familie fortzuführen, stattdessen rebellierte er und ging 1938 nach London und studierte dort Kunst an der Slade School of Fine Art. Er zog 1945 nach St Ives in Cornwall und fand Anschluss an die britische Malergruppe St Ives Group, zu der unter anderem Peter Lanyon, Terry Frost, Patrick Heron, William Scott und Roger Hilton gehörten. In den 1950er Jahren experimentierte Wynter mit Drogen, vor allem mit Mescalin. Die Rausch-Erfahrungen hatten Einfluss auf seine Arbeiten, die Malerei wurde deutlich abstrakter. Die wesentliche Quelle seiner Inspiration blieb allerdings die Landschaft von Cornwall. Im Jahr 1959 war Bryan Wynter Teilnehmer der documenta II in Kassel. Im Jahr 1962 hatte Winter einen Herzinfarkt. Er experimentierte einige Zeit mit Kinetischer Kunst. Einige bemerkenswerte Objekte dieser Zeit sind seine Kinetischen Skulpturen, die er „IMOOS“ (Images Moving Out Onto Space) nannte, bestehend aus Parabolspiegeln und frei rotierenden, bemalten Gebilden. In den letzten zehn Jahren seines Lebens fand er wieder zur Malerei zurück.

The Red Sox, featuring future Hall of Famers Harry Hooper, Herb Pennock, Tris Speaker, and Ruth, eventually won the Series four games to one. The Series featured terrific pitching with three of the five games ending with scores of 2-1 and another with the score of 3-1. The final game, a comparative offensive barrage, was won by the Red Sox with the score of 5-4.Ruth, a pitcher at the time, didn't pitch, and appeared in only Game One, grounding out as a pinch hitter in the 9th inning. Although Fenway Park was home to the Red Sox, the Boston-hosted games were played at Braves Field to take advantage of the newly renovated and larger park.

        THE VALLEY OF FEAR. A Sherlock Holmes Novel

      , 1915. 1915. Illustrated by Arthur I. Keller. New York: George H. Doran Company, n.d. [1915]. Original red cloth. First Edition (published more than three months before the London edition) of this Sherlock tale sited half in an English manor house and half in the coal mining villages of Pennsylvania. As Doyle later recollected, the story had its origin "through my reading a graphic account of the Molly McGuire outrages in the coalfields of Pennsylvania, when a young detective from Pinkerton's Agency acted exactly as the hero is represented as doing." This was Sherlock Holmes's first appearance in ten years, following his RETURN in 1905. This was also the last of the four book-length Sherlock Holmes adventures -- the others having been A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE SIGN OF FOUR and THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. As veteran Doyle collectors know, the later Sherlockian titles (THE RETURN, this one, HIS LAST BOW and THE CASE-BOOK) are somewhat scarcer than the best-known earlier ones (THE ADVENTURES, THE MEMOIRS and THE HOUND).~This is a handsome copy, just about fine, without wear or soil; the gilt lettering while bright is not gleaming, but such was the nature of "gilt" during the Great War. Green & Gibson A39c.
