[Lenin]
Geneva, Izd. P. i N. Kievskikh, 1915. 8vo (248 x 168 mm). 196 pp. Original printed wrappers. First and only issue (a double issue) of the journal founded by Lenin, containing the first appearance of his important article "Krakh II Internatsionala" ("The collapse of the II International", written May-June, 1915). In this work, Lenin "was signalling, for the first time in his career, that the establishment had become an immediate possibility and objective" and indicated his striving towards a third International (Fobert Service, Lenin, p. 82). Two other articles by Lenin are also printed here: "Chestnyi golos frantsuzskogo sotsialista" ("The honest voice of a French socialist") and "Imperializm i sotsializm v Italii" ("Imperialism and socialism in Italy"). Work on the publication was complicated by conflicts within the editorial team: Lenin opposed the anti-Party group around Bukharin and Piatakov, seeking to expose its anti-bolshevik views and to create two seperate groups. He was extremely disappointed when the journal eventually appeared and, as a result, the editors of "Sotsial-Demokrat" began publishing a new journal, entitled "Sbornik sotsial-demokrata" beginning in 1916; "Kommunist" was discontinued. "In his subsequent account, Lenin claimed that the journal had served its purpose once it had printed Socialism and the War by Lenin and Zinoviev" (Service, Lenin, p. 112). - Rare; we are unable to locate auction records either in Russia or the West. - Wrappers lightly toned; else a very good, uncut and unopened copy. - Souvarine and Bernshtein catalog (Dekker & Nordemann … [Click Below for Full Description]

POUND, Ezra (ed.)
London: Elkin Mathews, 1915. Octavo. Original grey paper covered boards with geometric design by Dorothy Shakespear in black to covers, titles to spine and front cover black, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. A couple of pencil underlinings to text. Spine browned, wear to spine ends, joints, and tips, rubbing to extremities, light foxing to covers and contents; a very good copy. First edition, first impression, one of 500 copies, including the first appearance of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. With the ownership inscription of John Wilton Haines on the front free endpaper, "J W Haines, Hucclecote, in Gloucester". Haines (1875-1960) was a poet, solicitor, and botanist, closely associated with the Dymock and Georgian Poets, the second anthology of whose poetry was also published in 1915. He was related by marriage to Lascelles Abercrombie and was a close friend of Edward Thomas; his involvement meaning "no study of these poets would be complete without mentioning the encouragement and support he gave to them" (Parker, p. 4). Although Haines published a volume of his own poetry, entitled Poems (1921), it was in his role as a financial, legal, and critical adviser that he remains most significant. Haines's ownership of this important Modernist anthology provides an interesting association, living as he did amongst poets whose works, although seen at the time of publication as progressive, would become something of a by-word for conservatism in poetry. The Catholic Anthology contains the first appearance in a book form of five poems by Eliot, including The Love Song of J. A … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sie erschien von Jahrgang 1 (1902) bis Jahrgang 32 (1933) unter der Herausgeberschaft zunächst von Emil Heilbutt und Cäsar Flaischlen im Verlag Bruno Cassirer, Berlin. Seit 1907 wurde sie von dem Kunstkritiker und -publizisten Karl Scheffler, einem engagierten Verfechter zeitgenössischer europäischer Kunst, herausgegeben. Seinem publizistischen Einfluss ist unter anderem zu verdanken, dass die in den Jahren vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg in Deutschland noch höchst umstrittene Kunstrichtung des Impressionismus vom damaligen Publikum zunehmend akzeptiert wurde."

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]

[Lenin]
[Geneva?], Izdanie Zagr. Sekretariata Org. K-ta R.S.D.R.P, 1915. 8vo (218 x 148 mm). 148 pp. Original printed wrappers. First and only issue of the extremely scarce journal (only one issue appeared), which presents the results of the Zimmerwald Conference on September 5-8, 1915. The journel represents the views of the "Zimmerwald-Left", a coalition of revolutionary socialists who forcefully disagreed with the social democrats around Kautsky in their approach to the war. While the German Social Democrats had voted for war credits in 1914 and spoke out in favor of defending the fatherland, the socialist revolutionaries argued placing the solidary of the international proletariat over national interests and called for the dissolution of the Second International. The issue contains articles by numerous members of the Organizing Committee of the foreign secretariate of the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party, such as A. Martynov and Iurii Larin. It also reproduces the full manifesto that was approved by the participants, and into which Lenin inserted several key demands of revolutionary, anti-militarist socialism, followed by the signature of Lenin and other members of the various national delegations. - Rare; we are unable to locate auction records either in Russia or the West. - Light wear to spine extremities; still very good. - Not in the Souvarine and Bernshtein catalog (Dekker & Nordemann BV, 1980).

Donzow, Dmytro:
Berlin: Kommission bei Carl Kroll, 1915. 68 Seiten. Original-Broschur. Exemplar mit Mängeln: Äußerlich ist die Broschur in einem lichtrandigen aber guten Zustand. Die Fadenbindung ist allerdings an einigen Stellen etwas gelockert, sodass einige Lagen recht lose aber noch verbunden sind. Im Text wurde mehrfach farbig unterstrichen. Mit größerer Bleistiftsignatur des Vorbesitzers auf dem Vorsatzblatt. Buch aus einem Nichtraucherhaushalt. Dmytro Iwanowytsch Donzow (29. August 1883 in Melitopol, Russisches Kaiserreich; † 30. März 1973 in Montreal, Kanada) war ein ukrainischer Jurist und Publizist. Er wird als einflussreichster Ideologe des ukrainischen Nationalismus angesehen. Donzow studierte Rechtswissenschaften in Sankt Petersburg und trat 1905 der Ukrainischen Sozialdemokratischen Arbeiterpartei (USDRP) bei. Er musste aus Russland fliehen, studierte weiter in Wien und beendete sein Studium in Lemberg. Dort widmete er sich stärker den ukrainischen Unabhängigkeitsbestrebungen, die er publizistisch unterstützte. Vermutlich stammt auch das vorliegende Werk aus dieser Periode. Er wurde zum wichtigsten Ideengeber der Organisation Ukrainischer Nationalisten (OUN), jedoch kein Mitglied dieser Organisation. Das von uns angebotene Exemplar ist als Erstauflage nur sehr selten auffindbar. Sprache: Deutsch [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Maugham, William Somerset
New York: George H. Doran Company, 1915. First edition, second issue, with the misprint corrected at line 4, page 257. 1 vols. 8vo. The Magnum Opus, Inscribed. Inscribed simply by Maugham on the front free endpaper in ink: "For Paul North / W. Somerset Maugham." Inscribed copies of the true first (American) edition of Maugham's most famous book are extremely scarce, from any period. This inscription, although probably not contemporary with publication, has the look and feel of being early, and is in brown ink -- not at all like the blue ink which Maugham typically used in later, post-war inscriptions. A very desirable inscribed copy of Maugham's most famous work, and one of the enduring novels of the twentieth century. Stott A21. Original green linen blocked in gilt on upper cover, gilt title on spine, faint rubbing to extremities, rear cover with ink stains. Bookplate of Opha Moore, Ohio historian, and Columbus, Ohio bookseller's ticket on front pastedown. Contemporary presentation inscription on title page, "Compliments of the Season -- A.J. Messier / Dec 1915." Preserved in a green cloth clamshell box.

Die vorliegende Erstausgabe ist viel seltener als die Zeitschrift.

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. Faint dampstain and small chip to the upper edge, overall very well preserved, Very Good plus.

Lawrence, D. H
London: Methuen, 1915. First edition. [viii], 463, [1], [4, ads] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. First edition of Lawrence's controversial novel. "Methuen published The Rainbow in September 1915, but it got savage reviews, most of which attacked what was understood as the book's overt sexuality, and it was withdrawn from sale. At Bow Street magistrates' court on 13 November it was banned as obscene (Lawrence having no opportunity to defend it). Its religious language, emotional and sexual explorations of experience, and sheer length had given its readers problems, but it was Ursula's lesbian encounter with a schoolteacher in the chapter 'Shame' which had finally condemned it in the eyes of the law and of a country now focused on conflict" (ODNB). Roberts A7. Publisher's cloth, spine stamped in gilt. Hinges weak, two small tears to spine, otherwise very good. Duschnes ticket on rear pastedown.

Maurice E McLoughlin
New York: George H. Doran Company. Condition: Very Good + / Very Good -. A solid copy of the 1915 1st edition, IN THE VERY UNCOMMON PICTORIAL DUSTJACKET. Ghostwritten, by all accounts, by a young Sinclair Lewis, who 15 years later would become the first American writer to win the Nobel Prize in literature. Tight and VG+, with no writing or markings of any kind (foxing, etc.) to speak of. And in a bright, VG- (and yet still very presentable) example of the fragile dustjacket. The jacket shows a degree of chipping along the panel edges (resulting in just a touch of loss to the title at the spine crown and the publisher's address at the foot of the rear panel), a 3" chip in the center of the spine (roughly the size of a quarter and then running down a bit), inconspicuous staining and tape re-inforcing to the inside of the dustjacket and, finally, light staining --and a bit of creasing-- to the front panel. Thick octavo, illustrated with 72 crisp black-and-white photos, Introduction/Preface by R. Norris Williams, 2nd (the 1914 National Champion of the United States). Maurice McLoughlin (1890-1957) not only won the US Championships in 1912 and 1913 and earned the world #1 ranking in 1914, he was also the first men's player from the Western United States (Nevada) to become US Champion and the first US finalist at Wimbledon (where he lost to Anthony Wilding in 1913).

Sarawak: At the "Sarawak Gazette" Office, 1915. Sarawak: At the "Sarawak Gazette" Office,, 1915. Curator of the Sarawak Museum (1909-1915). Octavo. Original green cloth, bound and varnished against termites by the "Sarawak Gazette" Office (with their ticket dated 1 Feb. 1915), gilt lettered spine and front cover, manilla brown endpapers, edges speckled red. Bookplate of William George Smith incorporating Malay motifs; Java Head bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Slight rubbing to spine ends, a touch of wear to tips, faint discolouration to cloth, contents lightly toned; a very good, exceptionally bright, copy. First and only edition, collecting 15 articles first printed in the Sarawak Gazette between January 1910 and October 1914. The Gazette, founded in 1870 by Charles Brooke, the second 'white rajah' of Sarawak, is the sole newspaper in the county. Records of its articles such as this comprise "an indispensable primary source for Sarawak's history" (Leong). Decidedly uncommon, only two copies traced institutionally on both Copac and OCLC, at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Oxford. These "notes" are grouped under the headings of Expeditions, Nature Notes, Biographies, Review, and Rainfall Notes, and include a long paragraph on Roman Catholic missionary activity in the region omitted from the initial Gazette publication "as the censor ordered it to be cut out" (p. 58). John C. Moulton (1886-1926) was a British Army officer, entomologist and ornithologist. From November 1908 until January 1915 he served as the curator of the Sarawak Museum, Kuching, the oldest mus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ladies of the Monticola Club
Susanville: [Lassen Advocate], c. 1915. First edition. Original publisher's cloth binding with gilt to front board. Gentle shelfwear to crown and foot of spine; some smudges to front board. Collates 100, [11], [1, blank]: complete. Internally a pleasing copy, with occasional light spotting but none of the signs of kitchen use typical in books of its kind. Scarce in the trade and at institutions, OCLC reports only 12 copies at libraries. The first and only edition of the Monticola Club Cook Book is undated but described by Glozer as "approximate date 1915." Across the three listings in OCLC, institutions have listed it from 1914, 1915, and 1923. While the book's exact year is uncertain, what is clear is that the cookery was created within a multicultural community during a time of war. Situated in Northern California near the Nevada border, the Monticola Club's base in Susanville allowed a mixture of Spanish, Mexican, and white European settlers to blend their cultures. The cookery's dishes reflect this diversity, as they include Hamburg Loaf, Halibut and Spinach, and Bordeaux Sauce alongside Spanish Rice, Stuffed Peppers, and Tamales. The range of dishes aimed, according to the book's introduction, to "contribute something to the fine art of living and help the young housewife." Such housewives were confronting the realities of wartime rations and the need to source local ingredients and make local dishes to feed their families. They were also dealing with the return of husbands injured on the World War I front. At its opening the book directs readers on a recipe "To Make a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ka Cox, later Katharine Arnold-Forster, and Virginia Woolf first met while spending a weekend in Oxford in 1911. The women were immediately drawn to each other, and Cox became almost a member of the Bloomsbury household. Woolf appeared to have been particularly intrigued by Cox's love affair with Rupert Brooke, at Newnham, where she became a Neo-Pagan. After both their marriages (Cox married labour politician Will Arnold-Forster) the friendship seems to have cooled. Katharine, however, remained devoted to Virginia throughout her life. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A1a. Publisher's moss-green cloth boards, spine lettered in gold, upper cover ruled and lettered in black. Some wear, cloth rubbed particularly at extremities with minimal loss. Housed in quarter black morocco-backed clamshell box.

Geibel, Margarethe - (1876 ? Weimar ? 1956)
Farbholzschnitt, um 1915, auf dünnem Japan-Bütten, signiert. Darstellungsgröße 27,5:33,8 cm, oben und links auf den Darstellungsrand geschnitten, rechts und unten mit winzigem Rändchen, Falten rechts geglättet, kleine Randbeschädigungen sorgfältig restauriert. Die in Weimar als Graphikerin und Illustratorin tätige Künstlerin, Tochter des Malers Casimir Geibel (1839-1896), war dort seit 1896 Schülerin von Otto Rasch (1862-1952) und 1900-1902 in Stuttgart an der privaten Kunstschule von Leopold von Kalckreuth (1855-1928). 1902 kehrte sie nach Weimar zurück, wo sie sich die Technik des Farbholzschnitts autodidaktisch aneignete, die sie zeitlebens favorisieren sollte. Sie erlangte Anerkennung durch Ankäufe von privaten und öffentlichen Sammlungen. Besondere Bekanntheit erlangte sie durch Darstellungen Weimarer Schauplätze und geistigen Zentren der Weimarer Klassik, vorrangig das Goethehaus. Sie wurden zu ihren künstlerischen Lebensthemen. Daneben schuf sie Ansichten etwa von der Ostsee. 1918 freundschaftlicher Kontakt mit der Schriftstellerin Erika von Watzdorf-Bachoff (1878-1963). Ihre Radierungen erschienen u.a. in den Jahresmappen des ?Weimarer Radierverein? 1905-1910.

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]

POUND Ezra
Translations by Ezra Pound for the most part from the Chinese of Rihaku, from the notes of the late Ernest Fenollosa, and the decipherings of the professors Mori and Ariga. First edition. One of 1000 copies printed. 8vo., original tan printed paper wrappers. With the advertisement leaf at rear. London, Elkin Mathews. A really fine copy, virtually flawless, and not common thus. Cathay was an important book in more than one sense. It was the first of Pound's books of verse to be roundly welcomed, even by essentially hostile forces. Having attempted (and at least partially failed) to manufacture a modern school of poetry with the so-called Imagists, Pound, in these loose translations from the Chinese, found something of a back-door entrance to the reflective, unaccented mode of expression he sought. George Steiner, writing in 1975, was to write that the poems in Cathay ?altered the feel of the language and set the pattern of cadence for modern verse? and Wyndham Lewis said something complementary in very different language in the second number of BLAST: ?Demon pantechnicon driver, busy with removal of old world into new quarters. In his steel net of impeccable technique he has lately caught Li Po. Energy of a discriminating element.? (Both are quoted by Carpenter in A Serious Character). Published in an edition of 1000 copies on 6 April 1915. Gallup A9. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

LEGER Fernand
- La Maison-Forestière (Argonne) 28 mai 1915, 13,4x21,3cm, 4 pp. sur un feuillet double. - Favolosa lettera del pittore Fernand Léger al suo amico, il famoso mercante d'arte Adophe Basler. Scritto in prima linea nella battaglia di Argonne, è datato dall'autore del 28 maggio 1915. Un vero capolavoro di corrispondenza bellica, questa lettera di Léger - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Fabuleuse lettre autographe du peintre Fernand Léger rédigée en première ligne durant la bataille d'Argonne, adressée au marchand d'art parisien Adolphe Basler. 92 lignes à l'encre noire, quatre pages sur un feuillet double, daté par Léger du 28 mai 1915. La lettre a été choisie pour l'anthologie de Cécile Guilbert, Les plus belles lettres manuscrites de Voltaire à Édith Piaf, Robert Laffont, 2014. Véritable chef-d'œuvre de la correspondance, cette exceptionnelle missive de Fernand Léger révèle l'importance fondamentale de l'expérience des tranchées sur son œuvre à venir. Mobilisé dans les troupes du Génie en 1914, Léger reste deux ans en poste sur le front d'Argonne, dans le secteur de la Maison-Forestière, d'où il écrit cette lettre le 28 mai 1915, « pendant que les obus [lui] passent au-dessus de la tête ». En toute liberté de ton et de forme, la lettre surprend par le charme célinien de son style et annonce la période « mécanique » de sa peinture d'après-guerre. On assiste entre les lignes à l'éveil de sa conscience politique au contact des hommes rencontrés sur le front, dont le mérite et la bravoure marquèrent durablement le peintre. Son analyse particulièrement lucide de l'inhumanité de la guer … [Click Below for Full Description]
