Mann, Thomas
An Lore Rümelin (1915-1998) in Bern, die ihren Umzug nach Bonn angekündigt hat: "[...] Das ist ein harter Schlag. Ich sehe nicht, wie Sie zu ersetzen sein sollten. Gleich kann ich Weiteres nicht schicken. Aber sagen Sie mir: Wenn Sie sich in Bonn eingelebt haben werden, können Sie denn die Arbeit an der Abschrift nicht dort ebenso gut fortsetzen, wie in Bern? [...]" - Mitten in der Arbeit im Felix Krull erreichte Thomas Mann die Nachricht, dass Lore Rümelin-Wibel (1915-1998), Frau des deutschen Kulturattachés beim deutschen Generalkonsulat in Zürich, mit ihrem Mann von Bern nach Bonn übersiedeln werde.

Nach ihrem Umzug setzte sie die Arbeit für Thomas Mann von Bonn aus fort und fertigte die Manuskriptabschriften aller späteren Werke an, u.a. für "Felix Krull", "Versuch über Schiller" und "Versuch über Tschechow". - Reg 53/346. - Vgl.

Ich sehe sie gerade durch und finde nur eigene Fehler - von Ihnen so gut wie keine. Sie haben glänzend und, wenn ich alle Umstände in Betracht ziehe, mit erstaunlicher Schnelligkeit gearbeitet.

Hahn, Otto
An Hahns Frau Edith (geborene Junghans). Ausführlicher Brief mit vielen alltäglichen Details, u.a. über die Presseberichterstattung in Zeiten des Krieges und die Versorgungslage, geschrieben an der deutsch-französischen Front während Hahns Tätigkeit in Fritz Habers "Gastruppe": "[...] Neugierig bin ich, ob Du das kleine Pfundpaketchen bekommst, das ich gestern abschicken liess. Es sind ein paar Eier und Butter drin. Falls es ankommt, werde ich Frl. Meitner auch gelegentlich ein paar Eier schicken [...] Soll ich wieder Ölsardinen (für 2 M!) kaufen? [...] Arbeitstrieb habe ich gar keinen; ich habe ja allerdings auch fast nichts zu tun. Manchmal mache ich einen sehr bequemen Spaziergang. Verviers ist sehr bergisch; wir wohnen auf dem Wege nach Spa in einem Vorort Henzy, der viel höher liegt, als die Stadt selbst. An unserem Hause geht die Elektrische nach der Stadt sowohl, wie nach Spa vorbei [...]. Da für Militair alle Elektrischen umsonst sind, ist das sogar ein billiger Spaziergang und ausserordentlich bequem. Nach Spa ist es 17 km, also ein bisschen weit mit der elektr. Bahn; aber Autos giebts nur für rein dienstliche Sachen [...]. Heute hatte ich altes Zeitungslesen [...] die Vas un Die und die Kölnische Sonntagsausgabe. Ausserdem gleichzeitig den 'Berner Bund', wo Herr Stegemann seine Kritiken über den Krieg veröffentlicht. Auf den Bund sind wir hier beim Stabe abonniert, man liest da doch mancherlei, was man in deutschen Zeitungen nicht liest. Vor allem die absolut vollständigen feindlichen Heeres- und Flugberichte [...]". - Von Januar 1915 bis zum Kriegsende 1918 war O … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hahn, Otto
An Hahns Frau Edith (geborene Junghans), geschrieben an der deutsch-französischen Front während Hahns Tätigkeit in Fritz Habers "Gastruppe", über die französische Landwirtschaft, die Versorgung der Fronttruppen und Lebensmittelpäckchen für die Familie zu Hause: "[...] Ich dachte schon, Du hättest mich ein bisschen vergessen [...]. Die Gegend hier ist ganz anders als in Deutschland; gar keine bestellten Felder mit Korn oder Kartoffeln, sondern überall grosse mit Hecken umstellte Viehweiden. Hier ist ja die Provinz Limburg, wo der Limburger Käse herkam. Die Leute sind ganz auf Viehzucht eingestellt, Kartoffeln gibt es fast garnicht. Letztere sollen hier pro Kg mit Scheck bezahlt werden. Die kleinen leckigen Käse gibts hier aber ohne Marken, aber sie sind so teuer, dass man sie nicht kauft. Wir selbst essen jetzt auch wenig oder fast gar keinen Käse; dagegen oft Eier, die wir 3.F. aus Russland kriegen und uns auch kaufen können. Ich werde nach Nauheim welche mitbringen. [...] Hast du vielleicht einen Spirituskocher? Mit unserem Alkohol auf dem Kocher könnten wir uns schon welche machen, event. sogar braten [...]". - Von Januar 1915 bis zum Kriegsende 1918 war Otto Hahn Mitglied der von Fritz Haber geleiteten Spezialeinheit für chemische Kriegsführung. Er erprobte Gasmasken und neue Giftgase, beriet in der Heimat die Industrie bei der Herstellung von Gasmunition und war eine Zeit lang Verbindungsmann der Gastruppe im "Grossen Hauptquartier". Von Dezember 1916 bis September 1917 weilte Hahn hauptsächlich in Berlin, wo er seine Radium-Forschungen mit Lise Meitner zum Abschluss br … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Edition. 8vo. Finely bound in recent half green morocco. Duckworth and Co London 1915, 1915. First Edition. Author's first novel, "absolutely unafraid, with the courage that springs not from naiveté but from education, and it soars straight out of local questioning into intellectual day". Very scarce, only 2000 copies were published on March 26th 1915 and not published in America until 1920. With 6 pages of advertisements and pages 5 - 12 of a 16-page catalogue at the rear. As early as 1908 Virginia Woolf was seriously concentrating on her first novel, which she called "Melymbrosia" and would later become The Voyage Out. At least five more drafts were written until she handed over her typescript to Leonard Woolf who delivered it to her half-brother's (Gerald Duckworth) publishing house in March 1913. It was accepted but not published before 1915 and finally, under the National Registration Act, Leonard registered Virginia Woolf as "author."

Wyndham Lewis
London, John Lane. Blast. July 1915. Second of two volumes published. Original copy. Light spotting places. Lacking part of backstrip. Binding appears reasonably tight. 112 pages, dimensions 30x25.5cm. Some small pencil annotation to illustrations. Includes C R W Nevinson's On the Way to the Trenches slightly spotted. Please see the photographs for a better idea of the condition. BLAST 1 was published weeks before the beginning of the First World War, while BLAST 2 (with a woodcut by Wyndham Lewis on the cover) came out a year later. It was considerably reduced and muted in colour, and lacked the visual drama of the first one. It was subtitled 'War Number', indicating the reason for its reduced size and ambition. The content in Blast 2 is by dominated by Lewis. There are poems by Ezra Pound as well as a number of poems and pieces of prose by Helen Saunders, Jessie Dismorr and others. Saunders' contributed an essay-cum-poem called, rather evocatively, A Vision of Mud. Famously Blast 2 includes two poems by T.S.Eliot; Preludes and Rhapsody on a Windy Night. Because of the power of the visual images and the graphic design, especially of the first issue, it is often forgotten that Blast was as much a literary journal as anything else. Poetry, prose, and art criticism sit alongside manifesto statements and pictures. In Blast 2 many of the images refer to the war, with such titles as Combat and War-Engine. The most moving and expressive part of Blast 2 is a piece by Gaudier-Brezka called Vortex, with the subtitle: Written from the trenches. At the end of it there is a little noti … [Click Below for Full Description]

World War I]: [Arizona]
[Camp Douglas, Az, 1915. Panoramic silver gelatin photograph, 8 x 32 3/4 inches. Matted and framed. Minor dust-soiling, some foxing at right, a handful of tiny surface abrasions. Overall, very good. An intriguing "yard-long" panoramic photograph showing a handful of men and supplies, likely belonging to the Sixth Field Artillery at Douglas, Arizona around 1915. A pencil notation in the bottom margin identifies the location as "Douglas, Ariz." and the supplies are similar to those found in another Camp Douglas encampment photograph held by this firm. The foreground captures about a dozen large gauge artillery guns on wooden wagon wheels, likely officer's quarters atop the hill, and then hundreds of tents arranged in tight quarters in the valley below for as far as the eye can see. The photograph captures important details on the organization and supplies necessary for training troops in the American army during the early 20th-century. Military records indicate the regiment training at Douglas at this time was the Sixth Field Artillery, shortly before they participated in the Mexican Expedition of 1916-17, designed to defeat Pancho Villa in the Mexican Revolution. The regiment would soon after fold into the First Expeditionary Division (later the First Infantry Division) - known to history as the Big Red One - during World War I. Soldiers who had come from the Sixth Field Artillery to the First Infantry Division would see action in France, specifically Lorraine and Picardy, in 1917 and 1918.

EINSTEIN, ALBERT
Berlin: Verlag der Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1915. First edition. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS IN FINE CONDITION of Einstein's famous November 4, 1915 paper introducing his new version of general relativity. By autumn 1915, Einstein experienced a "crisis" in his work on his gravitational equations and the general theory of relativity, forcing him to abandon several key elements of his earlier work. In October 1915, "Einstein shifted his focus from the physical strategy, which emphasized his feel for the basic principles of physics, and returned to a greater reliance on a mathematical strategy, which made use of the Riemann and Ricci tensors... 'Einstein's reversal,' writes John Norton, 'parted the waters and led him from bondage into the promised land of general relativity'... "The result was an exhausting, four-week frenzy during which Einstein wrestled with a succession of tensors, equations, corrections, and updates that he rushed to the Prussian Academy in a flurry of four Thursday lectures. It climaxed, with the triumphant revision of Newton's universe, at the end of November 1915" (Isaacson). In this November 4th paper and lecture [On the General Theory of Relativity], Einstein presented "to the plenary session of the Prussian Academy a new version of general relativity," explaining "that he had 'completely lost confidence' in the equations [he] proposed in October 1914... His answers were still not entirely right. There was still one flaw, a much smaller one, which he eliminated three weeks later. But the road lay open. He was lyrical.

Burroughs, Edgar Rice
NY: Near fine to fine book in very good dust jacket. This book and original jacket were printed in 1915, one year after the first edition came out by A. C. McClurg, whose copies in jacket are in five figures. A. L. Burt Company printed this edition until 1927, with differences to the book, embossment and color of the imprint and cloth. TARZAN OF THE APES Edgar Rice Burroughs A. L. Burt, 1915.(1914) The book is over 100 years old. The one listed here is the reprint of this classic book. A.L. Burt Company reprinted this Tarzan of The Apes book from 1915 until 1927. Many were printed in the 1920's. This one was printed a year after the first edition by McClurg, in 1915. If you cannot afford the first edition by McClurg in a dust jacket, this is the one you should get for your collection. The jacket is not married and originally came with the book. The book and jacket have been in my collection for 35 years. No refunds on this if sent outside the USA and there is no way to insure the book once it leaves the USA. Consider please before a purchase. A 1915 copy. After 1915 the Burt Company did not use this white, chalky colour for the lettering on the emerald green cloth, but rather used a more solid, yellowy and more permanent colour. You can still find these copies with the lettering pretty much intact. They are also duller looking than the chalky white one shown here for sale.

DW Griffth
Condition: Faint dampstain and small chip to the upper edge, overall very well preserved, Very Good plus. Original handbill for a theatrical run of D.W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation" (1915) at the Newark Theatre in Newark, New Jersey. Noted on the bill are cast members Lillian Gish, Mae Marsh, Donald Crisp, and Raoul Walsh (here spelled "Raul Walsh"), who played John Wilkes Booth. Also noted on the bill is that the film is to be accompanied by a full symphony orchestra under the direction of Albert Pesce, who arranged music for four D.W. Griffith films between 1919 and 1922. An early epic from Griffith, who was inspired by the sprawling Italian productions "Quo Vadis" (1913) and "Cabiria" (1914), films that not only legitimated the feature film runtime but made extensive use of the traveling camera, something Griffith revolutionized in the United States with this film. At the time of production, American companies were skeptical of an audience's ability to endure complicated narratives and inflated runtimes, so Griffith formed his own production company to take it on, leaving Biograph in 1913, where he made numerous successful shorts. Upon release, it was an immediate hit with audiences, and screened at movie palaces like Newark Theatre for years, ultimately becoming the highest grossing film of the silent era. 5.5 x 8 inches.

CASTLE, Irene 1893-1969
[ca. 1915]. Image size 225 x 175 mm., overall size 265 x 209 mm. Very slightly worn; small chip to lower left corner, not affecting image; edges very slightly uneven. Irene and Vernon Castle (1887-1918) were noted American ballroom and exhibition dancers. "The Castles (married in 1911) began to appear as a dance team in New York clubs in 1912. They danced in the musical The Sunshine Girl (1913), gaining wide appeal partly because of the enthusiasm among the upper classes in New York for the new steps of vernacular dance. By 1914 they had become the city’s most popular social dance team, appearing in Broadway shows and silent films, and they enjoyed great success with their book Modern Dancing (1914/R 1980). The Castles owned several entertainment centers where they performed and taught social dancing; the dances that they popularized, including the Castle Walk (a variant of the one-step, danced on the toes with stiff knees), hesitation waltz, and foxtrot, merged patrician sophistication with sexual suggestiveness and lack of restraint. Their special brand of social dancing, accompanied by the syncopated rhythms of their music director, James Reese Europe, and his orchestra, helped to popularize black urban music and paved the way for the dance styles and social life of the 1920s. A film of their lives, The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, was released in 1939." Ronald M. Radano in Grove Music Online. A rare image.
