        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

      London: Egoist Press,, 1916. Octavo. Original green cloth, recased with original spine laid down, titles in blind to front board and to spine gilt. Housed in a custom green cloth slipcase. A little wear to top edge of rear cover, hinges repaired, short closed tear to head of pp. 117-20. A very good copy. First edition, English issue from American sheets. A rare presentation copy with the exceptionally early authorial inscription to the front free endpaper, "To Edmund Brauchbar James Joyce Zurich, Switzerland, 12/iii/[1]917". A superb association: Edmund Brauchbar formed a long-lasting friendship with Joyce and has been proposed as a partial model for Leopold Bloom. He was one of a number of assimilated Jews who became Joyce's patrons in Zurich by taking English lessons with him, and from whom in turn Joyce sought information about Judaism. In 1939 Joyce tried to get Brauchbar's cousin out of Nazi Europe into America, and there is evidence to suggest that the publisher Benjamin Huebsch, Brauchbar, and Joyce were all involved in a kind of underground operation to help several Jews escape to America, Ireland, and Australia. When in 1940 Joyce and his family were allowed entry to neutral Switzerland, part of the exorbitant financial guarantee demanded was deposited on his behalf by Brauchbar. Joyce's first novel was published in America by Huebsch from whom Harriet Shaw Weaver, the proprietor of the Egoist Press, purchased "not more than 750" sets of sheets, issuing them here a year before her own UK printing of 1917. From the library of writer, editor, and Joyce collector Alexander Neubauer, with his bookplate to the inside of the folding case.

        The Sniggerers

      , , . 10 piccoli fogli sciolti (cm 7,5x11 c.ca) con disegni originali a china e matita al recto e racconti autografi al verso dell'artista Jessie Boswell. I disegni, numerati con numeri romani, sono spesso accompagnati da battute dei vari personaggi ritratti o didascalie. I testi autografi al verso sono ugualmente scritti a china in calligrafia molto minuta in lingua inglese. La tavola I è datata 27 luglio 1916. Solo l'ottava tavola è realizzata su quartino che riporta alla prima facciata un disegno e sulle due facciate interne un testo e un altro disegno a matita. Alcuni dei disegni di "The Sniggerers" sono pubblicati su "Jessie Boswell", catalogo della mostra a cura di Ivana Mulatero (Bolaffi, 2009). . . . "Il 27 luglio 1916 inizia il racconto The Sniggerers (Risolini maliziosi) su piccoli fogli, con i primi ritratti di Cesarina e i suoi autoritratti con i capelli raccolti di profilo e l'abito lungo da casa, la divisa blu, e altri personaggi, come il pittore che dipinge e mostra a Cesarina un quadro (Micheletti in quell'anno ritrae Lily e Renato), i genitori di Cesarina, il Maestro, Mister Heiman, il Generale, Luigina. Dei disegni realizzati a penna, otto sono attribuibili a Jessie e gli ultimi due, a matita, a Cesarina, che a sua volta si ritrae con Jessie e il fratello Ermanno, uno è di Edmea. Nel dicembre 1939, Jessie invia a Cesarina alcuni di questi piccoli foglietti e il 20 marzo 1940, mentre commenta alcune pitture di Cesarina le scrive: "Ho trovato altre pagine del volumetto di caricature "I Sniggerers" con un tuo capolavoro. Riderai. Non mi ricordo dove abbiamo visto Ermanno in vettura quella volta." (testo di Beatrice Marconi su "Jessie Boswell", catalogo della mostra a cura di Ivana Mulatero (Bolaffi, 2009).

        Chicago Poems [plus Autograph Manuscript of FOG]

      New York: Henry Holt, 1916 Original black cloth. Very good. Cloth case. FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by Sandburg: "Anna Proctor - fellow Scandinavian - here is 'skoal' - Carl Sandburg Detroit, April, 1922." Chicago Poems is Sandburg's best book of poetry and his first published book, preceded only by privately printed works. The volume includes his most famous verse including "Chicago" ("Hog Butcher for the World ... City of the Big Shoulders") and "Fog" ("The fog comes on little cat feet"). [with:] SANDBURG, CARL. "Fog" Autograph Manuscript. No place, no date. 5 ½ x 8 ½ in. Slight staining at edges, ink number at foot of leaf, neither approaching the manuscript. This is the complete text of Sandburg's beloved and much-anthologized poem "Fog," beginning "The fog comes on little cat feet ..." Harriet Monroe, the editor of Poetry, wrote "I remember the emotion with which I first read many of these poems ... That first conviction and power returns to me as I read them again. This is speech torn out of the heart, because the loveliness of ... a fog coming 'on little cat feet,'--the incommunicable loveliness of the earth, of life--is too keen to be borne." Provenance: Mrs. Charles Engelhard, Christie's New York, 27 October 1995, lot 121.

        Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám of Naishápúr

      Needham, MA: Rosemary Press, 1916. (iii), 101, (2)ff. From an edition of 75 copies printed for the 129th meeting of the American Oriental Society, this is one of fifteen reserved for the Press. A charming miniature book featuring Khayyam's celebrated couplets on the recto of each page. The edition was privately issued for the American Oriental Society, one of the nation's oldest learned societies and the oldest devoted to a particular scholastic discipline. George W. and Winthrop M. Southworth, proprietors of the Rosemary Press, were members of the Omar Khayyam Club of America, and they issued at least eight small editions of the Rubaiyat between 1916 and 1921 for various clubs and societies. All were specially bound, though only a few had a jewel on the cover. This copy is bound oblong in yellow leather with gilt stamping and cabochon-cut piece of jade inset on the upper cover. A fine copy of a select edition. (Bromer/Edison, p. 60; Bradbury, p. 247). (1 by 2 7/8; 25x71mm).

        California Perfume Company.

      New York. David McConnell. Ca. 1916. Catalog 10 ½ x 15 ¾ inches, 42 glossy pages of high quality illustrations in a thin green cloth-cover board binder secured with screw fasteners. Laid in is a folded brochure 8 ½ x 3 ¾ inches listing prices "effective January 1, 1923"; however, it is likely that the catalog featuring the company's product line was produced in the teens and was intended for use by the company's contracted regional female sales personnel over the years. OCLC/WorldCat shows only two library holdings; Hagley Museum and Library in Delaware lists two copies (1923 and 1926) and the University of California at Berkeley lists a copy with date of 1920s. There is also one reproduction copy listed. An uncommon catalog in excellent clean condition. The catalog features a magnificent range of products and superb color printing. Pages are separated by thin paper sheets featuring information regarding the products pictured, in magnificent color detail, on the page prior and the page that follows. Many of these sheets have revisionist information (pen or pencil strike-through of printed prices with "corrected" quotes - usually "up"). Text on the title page reads "Color plate catalog of perfumes, toilet waters, sachet powders, complexion creams, talcum powders, toilet preparations, soaps and soap preparation..." followed by a list of 12 additional products offered by the firm. Two sides of a medallion are pictured on the interior of the front cover with text below stating: "Gold Metal Award, Panama-Pacific Exposition, 1915." A brief history of the company can be found at http://www.californiaperfumecompany.com/products/cal_catalogs_1.html. The site provides a history of the firm (which eventually became Avon) and its founder, David McConnell. An uncommon catalog in exceptional condition.

        Dahl Playfully Writes To A Maine Elementary School Class: “If Any Of You Children Want To Apply For The [Secretary] Job, Please Do So But You Will Have To Be Very Good At Shorthand And Typing And Driving A Car And Sometimes Looking After Three Dogs…”

      - ROALD DAHL (1916-1990). Dahl was a beloved children’s author best remembered for James And The Giant Peach and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. TLS. 1pg. 8 ½” x 10 ¼”. September 28, 1978. Gipsy House. A typed letter signed “Roald Dahl” on his personal letterhead. He wrote to “Mrs. Francis Graham’s Class” in Maine after they wrote to the author: “Hello gorgeous Francis Graham and all the clever children at Newburgh. I am sorry not to have replied to your lovely letters before now. There are two reasons for this: first I wanted to wait until you were all back at school after the long summer holiday and second, I recently had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance and have a rather nasty spine operation. I am back home now and hopefully I will soon be friskier than ever. My big problem right now is finding a new secretary. Marlene, who is typing this, has been here a long time but she is going to have a baby in January so alas, she will be leaving. If any of you children want to apply for the job, please do so but you will have to be very good at shorthand and typing and driving a car and sometimes looking after three dogs and talking to my wife and feeding the tortoises and watering my orchids. Don’t apply unless you have all these qualifications.” The letter has two mailing folds, including a faint one through the large signature, and a couple browning spots that affect nothing. The original mailing envelope is included. A fine and playful Dahl missive. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Los Cuatro Jinetes del Apocalipsis [The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse]

      Valencia: Prometeo, 1916. First Edition. Wrappers. Good. 1st edition (Valencia, 6,000), 396pp, in Spanish). Original printed wrappers chips, toning and wear to the extremities, else very good (also issued in cloth with no known priority). Paris is the setting, and WWI is the time, for this novel contrasting events that engulf 2 families divided by the conflict. It was a huge success world wide (200 editions in almost every language), a 1919 American edition was the Publishers Weekly number 1 bestseller for that year. Films were made and released in 1921 (Valentino) and in 1962 (reset in the '40s). We sold a copy 8 years ago with 8,000 on the title page (our catalog 42). This one's earlier with 6,000 on the title page. My quickie census of copies held by Institutions could not find one with a number lower than 10,000, including copies in wrappers or even rebound ones. That doesn't mean they're not out there. It just may mean they are not findable by me.

        Warner Ranch.

      W.G. Henshaw / Volcan Land & Water Co.. 1916.. Huge blue line map, approximately 64 x 72 1/2 inches, folding to approximately 10 1/2 x 8 inches. Small separations at several folds, overall very good condition. In the book "Building the Ultimate Dam: John S. Eastwood and the Control of Water in the West" the author Donald C. Jackson provides background on this early 20th century period of the development of the Warner Ranch property, development intricately tied to with the history of water rights in Southern California and the displacement of the Native American Indians of the area: "In 1911, (Ed) Fletcher became associated with William G. Henshaw, a San Francisco-based businessman who owned the Riverside Cement Company and who had recently purchased the Warner Ranch at the headwaters of the San Luis Rey River. Development of the Lake Henshaw project (as it later came to be known) had begun in 1905, when Fletcher served as an agent for Henry Huntington's South Coast Land Company. When Huntington abandoned his own plans for this scheme, Fletcher arranged for Henshaw to buy Warner Ranch; in turn, Fletcher assumed management of the newly formed Volcan Land and Water Company to develop water rights along the San Luis Rey River that were tied to the ranch. The Lake Henshaw project proved more complicated than originally envisaged and remained incomplete for more than a decade. In 1914, however, Fletcher and Henshaw approached Eastwood for a dam design. This initiative foundered, but it was soon followed by plans for another multiple arch dam along the nearby San Dieguito River." In 1900 a U.S. Supreme Court ruling had authorised "the eviction of the Cupa people from their ancestral homeland at Warner Springs, leading to a forced removal two years later. May 27, 1902 Congress appropriates $100,000 to purchase land in Southern California for Mission Indians and to relocate them to the new land holdings. 1903 The Cupenos are forcibly transported to the Pala reservation by Indian agents in a three-day "Trail of Tears" and settled among the distinctly different Luiseño people with whom they eventually become integrated." (San Diego University website: Chronology of the Indigenous Peoples of San Diego County). This huge map "Surveyed and Mapped July 1916 by the Volcan Land & Water Co." provides a detailed view of the topography and rivers of the Warner Ranch land. No record of this map is found in WorldCat, but a smaller map related through its connection with the Volcan Land & Water Co. is a "Map of San Luis Rey Valley in vicinity of Foss Lake and San Luis Rey Mission : showing ground water contours" (OCLC Number: 28449808). An uncommon map from a significant moment in the struggle for and development of water rights in Southern California and the removal of the Native Americans who had long inhabited the region. .

        The Rainbow

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. First Edition. Original Cloth. Near Fine+. First American Edition of the title "universally considered by dealers and collectors alike Mr. Lawrence's scarcest book." (MacDonald) 8vo: [8],467,[1]pp. Publisher's original dark tan coarsely woven cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in black; lacking the scarce dust jacket. Near Fine or better (dust-soiled and spotted top edge, a touch shelf-worn). Neither Roberts nor MacDonald gives a separate entry for the New York edition, but both note its appearance under the entry for the London edition.) Roberts A7. MacDonald 7. ML 100, 48. The Observer's 100. Although the title page bears the date 1916, this edition was first published November 30, 1915, in order to establish the legitimacy of the American copyright date. "The Rainbow and Women in Love were originally intended to form one novel entitled The Sisters, which was begun in 1913 when Lawrence was living in Italy, but as the novel developed across 1913-14-whilst Lawrence and [his wife] Frieda moved from Italy to Germany to England and back to Italy again-its scope grew so much that in the autumn of 1914 Lawrence decided to create two novels. The Rainbow . . . is one of his major achievements, radical in both form and content." (Literary Encyclopedia) "Pronounced obscene when it was first published in 1915, The Rainbow is the epic story of three generations of the Brangwens, a Midlands family. A visionary novel, considered to be one of Lawrence's finest, it explores the complex sexual and psychological relationships between men and women in an increasingly industrialized world." (ML 100) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1916 - 1916 Original Hardback Wisden Very Good

      1916. Hi, Here we have a rare 1916 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 21st Wisden Hardback and the most expensive of the 20th Century. The rarest or second rarest since 1900. I have been agornising over which of two 1916s to keep as they are both in such amazing condition but to sum up this Wisden is as nice as the one I own in my master set. The lettering is always an issue (if you like shiny gold leaf) on 1916s , i guess they were rationed on the gold leaf in 1916, however the front board has very good gilt for a 1916. The spine is faded and no dot after the year which is correct. Small name to first page corner. The boards are very good , small line mark to the corner at the top of the front board but other than that , nice clean boards. Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy! Amazingly clean inside including the yellow pastedowns. Minimal foxing. No restoration. A lovely book. Rare,

        Native Life in Africa, Before and Since the European War and the Boer Rebellion.

      London, P. S. King and Son, [1916]. 8vo. Original terracotta pebble-grained cloth, letttered in black; pp. 352, portrait of the author, portrait of his wife; minimal marking to binding, initially and at the end a little spotted, otherwise a good copy. Very rare first edition of a milestone of the Native African Rights movement in South Africa. Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje (1876-1932) was a teacher, court interpreter and clerk to the Mafeking administrator of Native Affairs, author, journalist, linguist (he translated Shakespeare into Tswama), political activist and first Secretary-General of the SANNC (South African Native National Congress), which later became the ANC. He was only very slowly rediscovered from the 1970s onwards; in 2014 Jacob Zuma named the University at Kimberley Sol Plaatje University. COPAC lists only later editions of this title.

        Los Cuatro Jinetes del Apocalipsis [The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse]

      Valencia: Prometeo, 1916. First Edition. 1st edition (Valencia, 6,000), 396pp, in Spanish). Original printed wrappers chips, toning and wear to the extremities, else very good (also issued in cloth with no known priority). Paris is the setting, and WWI is the time, for this novel contrasting events that engulf 2 families divided by the conflict. It was a huge success world wide (200 editions in almost every language), a 1919 American edition was the Publishers Weekly number 1 bestseller for that year. Films were made and released in 1921 (Valentino) and in 1962 (reset in the '40s). We sold a copy 8 years ago with 8,000 on the title page (our catalog 42). This one's earlier with 6,000 on the title page. My quickie census of copies held by Institutions could not find one with a number lower than 10,000, including copies in wrappers or even rebound ones. That doesn't mean they're not out there. It just may mean they are not findable by me. Good.

        Le Feu. (Journal d'une Escouade).

      Paris: Ernest Flammarion, Tirage Spécial pour "Les XX",, 1916. Octavo (249 × 158 mm). 20th-century dark brown half morocco signed by Semet & Plumelle, titles gilt to spine with raised bands, marbled sides and endpapers, top edge gilt and others untrimmed. With both the outside wrappers, and the special "XX" issue marbled wrappers, bound in. Fine. First edition, tête de tirage presentation copy, number I of 20 special copies signed by Barbusse for the bibliophiles of "Les XX", this copy presented to the society's president Henri Lenseigne, with an autograph letter from Barbusse dated 6 October 1917, and the hand-addressed envelope, here bound in. In the letter Barbusse remarks how thankful he is to be included in the "beautiful and precious" editions produced for Les XX, and saying that he would be happy to sign the limitation leaves for the society. The twenty special copies for Les XX were printed on papier vélin de cuve des Usine d'Arches, in large paper format. Les XX were founded in 1897 to encourage the production of fine editions of works specially chosen to offer "an appeal of curiosity, novelty, originality, and intellectual value". Entirely unconcerned with commercial considerations, there was just a single copy for each member. Les XX distinguished themselves by publishing only the most recent contemporary works, "newborn works, which seem to possess a literary value that will make them famous tomorrow, perhaps" (from the statutes of Les XX quoted in Silverman, The New Bibliopolis). Their choice to support a special issue of Barbusse's Le Feu was very much in keeping with these standards. It was one of the earliest novels of the war to be published, directly based on Barbusse's experiences at the front, and purportedly begun in the trenches. Wounded and invalided out of active service, Barbusse finished its composition while working at the War Office. On publication it inevitably met with mixed responses, in his analysis of the French literature of the War, Jean Norton Cru described it as "a concoction of truth, half-truth, and total falsehood" (Témoins; essai d'analyse et critique des souvenirs de combattants édités en français de 1915 à 1928), and Falls identifies Barbusse as "an able and forceful writer of the school of Zola [with] even more than his master's brutality and distortion", while awarding the novel a hard-won *; however Jacques Bertillon, the French medical statistician of the war, praised him as a "moral witness … with a story to tell and re-tell", and the novel was awarded the Prix Goncourt for 1916. This copy has the bookplates of subsequent bibliophiles: Jules Exbayrat, president of 'Les Bibliophiles Franco-Suisses', and Venezuelan novelist José Fabbiani Ruiz.
