        Mary Fedden (1915 - 2012) An original limited edition lithograph entitled 'Still Life'. Taken from a delightful little gauche painting, the lithograph on hand made paper was produced in 2009 at the Curwen Studio. 11.45 x 14cm, sheet size 22.5 x 25cm. Signed and numbered by the artist, limited to 125 copies only. This is number 105. Mary Fedden was renowned for her modest-sized still life paintings and prints that combine a richness of colour and texture with perfect balance. Matisse and Braque were often cited as influences on the artist, whose mature style was rooted in the European tradition of belle painter, or beautiful painting. More immediately, she drew on the aesthetic of Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood.

        Collection of Letters from POW British Navy Soldier to Welsh Nurse

      Döberitz, Germany: 1915-1919 [WWI] Collection of Letters from POW British Navy Soldier to Welsh Nurse Döberitz, Germany: 1915-1919. 41 pieces of WWI correspondence: 25 hand-written postcards, 14 hand-written letters, 1 Easter card, 1 photographic postcard of soldier Roberts. All written from William F.J. Roberts, a member of the Royal Navy Division of the British Army, a prisoner of war in Germany, to Kathleen Touzel Wynne-Edwards, a nurse from North Wales, UK (with the exception of one letter, which was written to Kathleen from Roberts' father.) Most written on Kriegsgefangenensendung "prisoner of war mail" postcards or letterhead issued by Döberitz, a few on blank paper, mostly written in pencil with the others in ink. Generally very good, with some toning and soiling, a few with tears to edges. William F.J. Roberts was a member of the Royal Navy Division of the British Army during World War I. The group notably participated in battles at Antwerp in 1914 and Gallipoli in 1915. Roberts was captured by the German Army following the Seige of Antwerp in 1914 and subsequently became a prisoner of war. He was detained at Döberitz, a military training camp in Germany that later housed POWs, and he endured the length of the Great War there. From September 6, 1915 - February 16, 1919, Roberts wrote to Kathleen Wynne-Edwards (née Touzel), a devoted and patriotic nurse from North Wales. In addition to their correspondence, Kathleen sent Roberts care packages containing food, clothes, and cigarettes. Additionally, she helped find correspondents for Roberts' fellow prisoners and assisted in war-relief efforts on the home front. Kathleen continued to write to Roberts through the war's end in 1918, her devotion not wavering even after getting married to John Wynne-Edwards in 1916 and giving birth to two daughters. In addition to chronicling the correspondence between a POW and a nurse, this collection of letters demonstrates the decomposition of romantic conceptions of war and the subsequent disillusionment that shaped the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s-1930s. Roberts is hopeful in his earliest letters to Kathleen, asking for cakes, clothing and cigarettes, and telling her of his pre-war civilian life. As his imprisonment extends, Roberts becomes less concerned about the food parcels Kathleen sends and more about the emotional sustenance of their friendship and communication. As the war continued well beyond its intended duration, soldiers on both sides became increasingly convinced that WWI would serve no purpose, leading to an increased disparity between the presentation of the war on the homefront and trench reality. Döberitz, a military training camp in Germany, was first used as a site for militaristic purposes in the 18th century. After the outbreak of World War I, a temporary prisoner of war camp was erected on the outskirts of Döberitz. By 1915, the complex included two newly erected buildings to house the increasing number of POWs. Before the war's end in November 1918, Döberitz would house more than 30,000 prisoners from seven different nations. Related People: Roberts, William F. J. - English soldier of the Royal Navy Division Wynne-Edwards, Kathleen Violet M. (née Touzel) - Welsh Red Cross nurse Roberts, J. - father of William F. J. Roberts Wynne-Edwards, Lieutenant-Colonel John Copner - married Kathleen Touzel in 1916 I. 1915 1. Roberts, William F.J. Four handwritten postcards and three handwritten letters addressed to Kathleen Touzel, from September 6 - December 26, 1915. In these letters, Roberts briefly introduces himself by referencing his involvement in the 1914 Seige of Antwerp and his home in Gloucestershire, England, where he resided with his parents. He also profusely thanks Kathleen for her parcels and makes several request for socks and other clothing items. 2. Roberts, J. One handwritten letter to Kathleen Touzel, December 15, 1915. J. Roberts writes to Kathleen to thank her for the kindness and devotion she has shown his son William F.J. Robe.

        A La Baionnette. Year I, No. 1 (January 2015) through No. 24 (3 July 1915), followed by La Baionnette, Nouvelle Série, No. 1 (8 July 1915) through No. 250 (22 April 1920) (all published)

      A remarkable complete run in 274 issues of the politico-satirical periodical comprised mostly of illustrations, by many of the leading artists of the day, pertaining to events in the Great War, social conditions in France and elsewhere in Europe, class issues, etc., often with elaborate captions, brief texts at the beginning of most issues. 4to. Orig. brilliantly colored illus. wrpps. Several issues with separated covers or splitting along stapled edge; no. 250 damage with significant soiling and staining, other minor scattered soiling, overall very good. Paris (Edition Française Illustrée) 1915-1920. La Baionnette was created in 1915 by the cartoonist Henri Maigrot, with the original title. He provided most of the drawings for the first series of issues, until July 1915 when the publication changed editors, and subsequently, names. La Baionnette was a very patriotic publication, but was never elitist or meant only for members of high society. An impressive roster of some of the best artists of the time contributed artwork to the journal, including Icart, Iribe, Armegnol, Cabral, Foy, Leroy, Truchet, Zip, Sem, Willette, Cappiello, Guillaume, Hermann-Paul, Legrain, Raemaekers, MacOrlan, Laborde, and many others. Each issue was centered around a theme, with a graphically striking full-color cover and usually one or several other color illustrations as well many illustrations in black and white. The cover imagery vacillates between whimsical, playful images and ones that are quite graphic and often bloody, primarily during the war years. Although scattered holdings do exist in numerous institutions in North America, a complete run of both series is incredibly scarce.

Les hasards de l'histoire firent que, cette année 1915, la presque totalité du royaume de Belgique était occupée. Il y eut bien des cérémonies sur le site de Waterloo cette année-là, mais elles furent exclusivement prussiennes et autrichiennes, les autres nations qui avaient pris part aux combats de 1815, n'ayant pas pu y participer.

        3 patent specification for the Archduchess. Vienna, Budapest, and Berlin, 1915.

      1915. 4to and folio. 13 printed pages and 3 folding plates. Includes a photograph of the patented invention on cardboard with stamped signet of the B. Reiffenstein studio in Vienna. 113 x 150 mm. Patent specifications bound with coloured cords and secured in a limp cloth portfolio bearing the giltstamped crown of the Archdukes. Silk pastedowns. The present patent specifications in German and Hugarian, protected in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the German Reich, describe an "apparatus for the shockless transport of casulaties or persons in general in motor vehicles". - After the death of Crown Prince Rudolf, Marie Therese, née Princess of Bragança, Infanta of Portugal, and wife of the new heir apparent, Archduke Karl Ludwig, assumed a new role as "First Lady" of the Empire. She maintained this role even after her husband's death in 1896 (cf. Hamann, Habsburger, 349). During WWI she worked as a nurse under the name of "sister Michaela". It is not widely known that the Archduchess also practised as an inventor; the relevant biographical literature makes no such mention. - Rare, uncommon document in excellent state of preservation; binding shows a minute defect.
