        History of Aleppo Temple

      1915. First Edition . (SHRINERS) (HALL, E.J.). History of Aleppo Temple. Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. Boston: Hall Publishing Company, (1915). Two volumes. Folio (11 by 14 inches), original pictorial brown cloth gilt, pictorial endpapers. $1600.First and only edition of this history of the Masonic order known as the Shriners, number 1483 of an unspecified limitation, richly illustrated with portraits of Shriners and images from Arabia and the Near East, many printed in color.In 1870, Freemasons Walter M. Fleming, M.D., and actor William J. Florence discussed the idea of a new fraternity for Masons stressing fun and fellowship. Not long after, Florence was invited to a lavish party given by an Arabian diplomat, at the conclusion of which the guests became members of a secret society. Florence took copious notes and drawings at his initial viewing and on two other occasions, once in Algiers and once in Cairo. Back in New York, he showed his material to Fleming, and the two converted these ideas into what would become the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine—now known by the more common name “Shriners.” Shriners International now covers nearly 200 temples (chapters) across North America, South America, Europe and Southeast Asia, and is best known for the Shriners Hospitals for Children it administers, and the red fezzes that members wear. Without two tipped-in plates: frontispiece for Volume I, and “The Pilgrimage to Mecca” opposite page 91. Near-fine condition.

        “Alone 2000 Miles In A 12 Foot Boat” – Unpublished Typescript Account Illustrated with Original Pencil Drawings of his Sea Voyage in a small boat from Boston to Key West, Florida – 1915

      The collection includes the following:Two 56 page typescript copies with corrections, of Widing's unpublished account of his journey: "A Two Thousand Mile Midwinter Cruise in a 12 foot Boat." 18 original pencil sketches by Widing executed during his trip, includes views, natural history, persons encountered on the journey and events of the voyage. The quality of the sketches vary, but it is generally high (see sample images). Original pencil and water color "title-page" (see illustration above). 5 pieces of printed ephemera relating to Widing, including advertisements for public lectures which Widing gave describing his journey. 8 pages of mounted press clippings about Widing's journey, including English and Swedish language newspapers. 3 earlier pencil sketches and pages of miscellaneous notes and addresses. Typescript account of Ivar Widing's journey by sea from Boston to Key West, Florida in a 12 foot boat, named the Nutshell. The account is illustrated with original pencil drawings by Widing executed along the way. Accompanied by printed ephemera relating to Widing's lecture tours wherein he gave accounts of his journey to the public. The account is unpublished. Ivar Widing, a twenty seven year old, artist, illustrator and yachtsman decided in 1915 to undertake a solo 2000 mile journey from Boston to the Florida Keys and West Indies in a small boat. Widing was born in Stockholm Sweden and emigrated to America with his parents. Widing lived in Dorchester, Massachusetts and was a member of the Savin Hill Yacht Club. Widing and a friend had earlier planned to sail across the Atlantic in a small motor launch they had built in 1914, but were prevented by the outbreak of World War One. Widing resolved to undertake a solo journey by sea in a twelve foot long sailing tender, about five feet wide it drew barely two inches, kept steady by a small centerboard. The craft was specially fitted for the voyage, it was cat rigged with light bamboo spars that could be unshipped quickly, and the canvas could be used as a sea anchor in event of sudden bad weather. A watertight hood of canvas kept the craft dry during rough water. Widing carried a minimal amount of equipment, which included a camera and sketching materials. Several of Widing's pencil sketches are included. Widing left Dorchester on December 8 1915, traveled to Plymouth, the Cape Cod Canal to New York, via the Sound. From Sandy Hook he skirted the New Jersey and Delaware Coasts to Chesapeake Bay. Then he took the inside route, through the Dismal Swamp Canal to the sounds of Carolina, avoiding the run around Hatteras. He reached Key West on March 31, 1916.

        Selections from American Poetry

      1915. (BERG, Morris “Moe”) BERG, Moe. Selections from American Poetry. Boston: Houghton Mifflin (Riverside Press), 1915. Small octavo, original light brown paper covers. $1600.American literature textbook belonging to major league baseball player and OSS spy Moe Berg, “the one person qualified to sneak into Europe to determine the likelihood of a German A-bomb,” signed by him multiple times.“Moe Berg has long enjoyed a reputation as the most shadowy player in the history of baseball. Earning more notoriety for being a frontline spy than for being a backup catcher, it is difficult to separate fact from fiction in Berg’s undercover career” (Nick Acocella). “Berg got his start in baseball in 1906, at the age of four, playing catch with the beat policeman in front of his father’s pharmacy” (American Jewish Historical Society). “At the age of seven he played for the Roseville Methodist Episcopal Church baseball team under the less ethnic pseudonym ‘Runt Wolfe.’ In 1918 Berg graduated from Barringer High School. During his senior season, the Newark Star-Eagle selected a nine-man ‘dream team’ from the city’s best prep and public high school baseball players, and Berg was named the team’s third baseman” (Nicholas Dawidoff). After graduating from high school at the top of his class, Moe went to Princeton, where he studied seven languages and graduated magna cum laude. He also obtained a degree from the Sorbonne, and, while pursuing his career as a major league ballplayer, took a degree at Columbia’s Law School. And he was also a spy. Berg’s career as a spy began in 1934, when traveling to Tokyo as interpreter for an all-star team that included Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx and Lefty Gomez, he secretly took movies of the city. Eight years later, when General Jimmy Doolittle’s bombers raided Tokyo, their targets were plotted by referring to Berg’s film. In 1943 the OSS decided “there was only one person qualified to sneak into Europe to determine the likelihood of a German A-bomb” (and, if necessary, to assassinate Werner Heisenberg, head of Nazi Germany’s atom-bomb project). It was agreed that the man for the job was the former backup catcher for the Boston Red Sox. Fluent in German, Berg was sent to Zurich in December 1944, in order to attend a lecture by Heisenberg (Berg’s assessment of the situation was that Germany was not close to developing the bomb, and no attempt was ever made on Heisenberg’s life). This is Moe Berg’s high school textbook on American poetry, signed by him multiple times on the covers and designated “Room 41, Seat 3— 1 Row.” Countersigned on the title page by Berg’s older sister Ethel, with whom he lived in the last eight years of his life. Later ownership stamp on title page.Detached covers affixed with tape, closed tear to title page, faint dampstain to top margin of last several leaves. An unusual item of baseball and World War II memorabilia, in fairly good condition.

Im weißen Rand typografisch bezeichnet, links unten: "Originallithographie von A. Egger-Lienz", rechts unten: "Verlag der Gesellschaft für vervielfältigende Kunst, Wien". - Der Künstler schildert in der Lithographie mit dem Titel "1915" seinen Eindruck der Südfront bei den Tiroler Standschützen. Drei Reihen von Soldaten mit Gewehren in den Händen stürmen auf den Betrachter zu. Ihre Gesichtszüge sind uniform, die Gestalten wirken wie geklont. Durch diese Gleichförmigkeit gelingt dem Künstler eine Steigerung des Ausdrucks: die Männer verschmelzen zu einer Einheit, sie werden zu einer bewaffneten Mauer, einer Kampfmaschine. In einem Brief an Heinrich Hammer schreibt er : "(.) Österreichs und Deutschlands Volk in Waffen schiebt als eine unbesiegbare Macht, eine undurchbrechliche Mauer, den Feind vor sich her. Ich mußte auf intime Charakterisierung der Menschen verzichten, wenn das "Symbolische", um das es sich bei so einer Sache immer dreht, wirksam werden soll. Entschlossenheit, Kraft, beflügelter Schritt usw.". - Die Lithographie entstand nach zeichnerischen Entwürfen, die sich im Tiroler Landesmuseum und in Bozener Privatbesitz befinden. - Soyka WV S. 63.

        The Log of the Snark

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1915 487+[5 ad] pages with 20 photo plates, including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 3/4")issued in light blue cloth decorated and lettered in gilt. Advance review copy with circular perforated stamp stating such on title page. First Edition. Charmian Kittredge London (November 27, 1871-January 14, 1955) was Jack London's second wife. After divorcing Bess Maddern London in 1904, London married Charmian Kittredge the following year. Biographer Russ Kingman called Charmian "Jack's soul-mate, always at his side, and a perfect match." She was the author of several books about her life with Jack London: The Log of the Snark, Our Hawaii and The Book of Jack London. The last is considered by scholars to be an important but flawed source of biographical information on London: Clarice Stasz calls it "an uneven account that omits Jack's illegitimacy, yet has surprisingly frank information nonetheless concerning his personality." Their relationship became the subject of a book, Clarice Stasz' American Dreamers. The couple had no children who survived them. One died soon after being born, and another pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Shortly after the death of Jack London, Charmian had an affair with Harry Houdini. A PBS source cites an Houdini biographer, saying: Most of the evidence of their affair, convincingly reconstructed by Houdini biographer Kenneth Silverman, comes from brief entries in Charmian’s diaries. They saw each other over several weeks early in 1918 while Charmian was living in New York, where Houdini was starring in the patriotic World War I extravaganza, "Cheer Up." Charmian wrote that after they saw each other a few times, Houdini made a "declaration" that "rather shakes me up." They became intimate a short time later. She wrote that one visit by Houdini had "stirred me to the deep," and that he apparently felt the same, declaring, "I’m mad about you," and "I give all of myself to you." Throughout, she refers to him alternately as "Magic," her "Magic Man," or "Magic Lover." As intense as it apparently was, their attachment did not last long. Charmian, the "New Woman" whose marriage to London had included open sexual experimentation, never stopped seeing other men. Condition: Minor wear at extremities, Embossed ownership stamp also on title page, small number and letter 4A at front end paper corner; else near fine without jacket. . Review Copy. Original Cloth.
