Meegeren, Han von
1916. Das Blatt von Han van Meegeren (1889-1947) ist rechts unter der Zeichnung eigenhändig in Bleistift signiert und datiert. Zentral dargestellt ist das nackte Mädchen, das sich schüchtern und neugierig zugleich vom personifizierten Tod abwendet. Dieser ist als Skelett am rechten Bildrand sichtbar und scheint auf das Mädchen einzureden. Van Meegeren malte das seit dem 15. Jahrhundert beliebte Sujet, bevor er seine Karriere als Kunstfälscher begann. - Etwas fleckig und mit kleineren Kratzspuren; gutes Exemplar. [2 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

Firbank, Ronald
The First UK printing published by Grant Richards, London in 1916. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just some light spotting to the prelims. The green top-stain is still present. Gold lettering to the spine and front cover remain very bright. The publisher's catalogue is present to the rear of the book. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Minor edge-wear with a little loss at the spine ends and some light age related markings and darkening. The coloured front panel illustration looks very striking in the removable brodart archival cover. The book has been inscribed by the artist Albert Rutherston to the front blank end-paper: 'To Norman, with apologies for this scribble, sign of the times'. The recipient was the artist Norman Wilkinson who was a British artist who was primarily a marine painter, but also an illustrator, poster artist, and wartime camoufleur. Wilkinson invented dazzle painting to protect merchant shipping during the First World War. Firbank's scarce second novel with only 500 copies issued. Albert Rutherston (formerly Rothenstein) contributes two B/W illustrations to the book. The frontis is reproduced in colour on the wrapper front panel to striking effect. Scarce with such attributes. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

LEADBITTER, Eric
London: George Allen & Unwin [and] Hodder & Stoughton 1916-[1923]. Six volumes, "Rain Before Seven" and "Shepherd's Warning" second impression, the other four first edition, 8vo. The author's copies with his annotations to the fly leaves, "Rain Before Seven" with a portion of a printed wraparound band loosely inserted showing press reviews. Publisher's cloth, four volumes ("The Road to Nowhere", "Shepherd's Warning", "Dead Reckoning" and "The Evil that Men Do") still with their d.w.'s, some loss to edges, particularly to two of the heads of the spines, "Rain Before Seven" with light wear to the top of the cloth spine. A remarkable set of Leadbitter's own copies of all six of his novels. With the exception of "Rain Before Seven", in which he has only noted the date of publication in America, Leadbitter has listed on the fly leaves the dates the novels were begun and finished plus revision and final publication dates, and in two cases noted early drafts under different titles. Leadbitter had a distinguished career as a civil servant, and his novels, written in his 20s and early 30s, have been largely forgotten. [Attributes: First Edition]

Erfurth, Hugo (1874-1948).
Dresden, 1916. 10 x 7,3 cm (Fotografie); 19,8 x 13,2 cm (Unterlagekarton). Mit einer handschriftlichen Widmung von Georg Gelbke aus dem Jahr 1918 an Frau Christa von Wiebalin am unteren Rand. Hugo Erfurth (* 14. Oktober 1874 in Halle (Saale); † 14. Februar 1948 in Gaienhofen) war ein deutscher Fotograf. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Porträtfotografen seiner Zeit. Georg Hermann Gelbke (* 12. September 1882 in Rochlitz, Sachsen; † 17. März 1947 in Dresden) war ein sächsischer Maler und Grafiker, der viel in Ostpreußen wirkte. Georg Gelbke stammte aus einer patriarchischen Arztfamilie und studierte an der Kunstakademie Dresden, wo er auch Richard Birnstengel kennenlernte, mit dem ihn viele Gemeinsamkeiten verbanden. Seine Studienreisen führten ihn nach Böhmen, Paris, Korsika und Dalmatien. Ein kunstsinniger Gutsverwalter bei Dresden ließ seine Töchter von Birnstengel und Gelbke im Zeichnen unterrichten, mit der Folge, dass beide eine der Töchter heirateten und damit verschwägert wurden. In einem Haus in der Nähe des Dresdner Hauptbahnhofes befanden sich Tür an Tür ihre Ateliers. Gelbke war nach 1930 mehrmals zu Gast in Nidden, wo Birnstengel ein Haus hatte und die beiden gemeinsame Werke, vor allem Winterbilder der kurischen Landschaft schufen. Seine Lieblingsmotive fand er in den Fischerdörfern auf der Nehrung. Ein Teil dieser Gemälde ist heute in den Archivbeständen des Kulturhistorischen Museums der Hansestadt Stralsund zu finden, der andere Teil befindet sich in Privatbesitz. Georg Gelbke war Mitglied im Deutschen Künstlerbund. Erfurth, Hugo (1874-1948). Portrait of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wildemann, Anneliese (1. Hälfte 20. Jahrhundert)
1916. Pinsel in Schwarz, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf festem gelblichem Karton, rechts unten signiert und datiert ?Anneliese Wildeman 13.?. 28,4:25,6 cm. Insgesamt nicht ganz frisch. Provenienz: Hans-Franck-Archiv, Berlin. Der dekorativ-phantasievolle Entwurf dokumentiert, daß diese Künstlerin, über die weiter nichts bekannt ist, mit dem Pinsel gekonnt umzugehen wußte. Sie fand u.a. Erwähnung in einem Artikel der Monatshefte für Kunstwissenschaft, IX. Jahrgang 1916 (liegt nicht vor). Die Herkunft des Blattes läßt vermuten, daß Anneliese Wildemann ein Bühnenbild für ein Stück von Hans Franck entwarf, der 1914-1921 als Dramaturg für das Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus und als Leiter der angegliederten Düsseldorfer Theater-Akademie, später Hochschule für Bühnenkunst, tätig war.

Yizkor Book in Yiddish published by Poalei Tziyon in New York 1916. This book was published by Poalei Tziyon (Workers of Zion)* in 1916 to commemorate fallen comrades and others, some who had settled in Zion, then Ottoman Palestine. This book is notable for memorial pages mentioning Moshe Barsky, who, at age 18, was the first Kibbutz casualty of the Arab-Jewish conflict on Degania Aleph, the first Kibbutz. The book cover is in rough condition, and is well worn, with possible moisture exposure. The white graphic on the cover is partially intact, and spells 'yizkor' with tears dropping from it. The binding is in good condition and the interior pages are in very good condition, with beautiful illustrations, portraits and silver ink on black printing. The book is entirely in Yiddish. *an organization Poale Zion (also spelled Poalei Tziyon or Poaley Syjon, meaning "Workers of Zion") was a movement of Marxist-Zionist Jewish workers founded in various cities of Poland, Europe and the Russian Empire in about the turn of the 20th century after the Bund rejected Zionism in 1901.

Andersen, Hans Christian; Clarke, Harry (Illustrator)
New York: Brentano's, [1916]. Clarke, Harry. First Edition. First American edition, quarto size, 320 pp. Hans Christian Andersen's (1805-1875) "Fairy Tales" have been beloved by both children and adults ever since they were first published, with some tales appearing as early as 1835. Often containing a moral story clothed in fantasy, but less dark than the Grimms' tales, they have been translated into 125 different languages and many of the stories have been adapted to stage and screen. One only has to give the names for the stories to infuse our minds: Thumbelina, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, The Snow Queen, and many more. This version is illustrated by Irish artist Harry Clarke (1890-1931), who was apprenticed to his father, the head of a large firm of stained glass artists, in 1906. An accomplished glass artist whose work can be seen in both secular and religious settings, Clarke's illustrations can be compared to that of Aubrey Beardsley, Kay Nielson, and Edmund Dulac, taken up during the tail end of what was considered the Golden Age of Illustration; his work is often imbued with a sinister atmosphere also exemplified by Beardsley. "Fairy Tales. . ." was published shortly before Clarke's career-making work for Edgar Allan Poe's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination"; the highly detailed drawings take on an almost psychedelic quality, far ahead of their time, and their eerie beauty still fascinates today. ___DESCRIPTION: Full original grey cloth titled and illustrated in black to the front board and spine, with an oval-cut paper illustration mounted to the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roosevelt, Theodore
George H. Doran Company, New York, 1916. First edition of this collection of essays by the twenty-sixth President of the United States. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Good luck to all good Americans! Theodore Roosevelt March 27th 1916." In near fine condition, note to the front free endpaper. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional inscription. Fear God and Take Your Own Part is a collection of articles Theodore Roosevelt wrote, largely for Metropolitan Magazine, some six years after he left the presidency. The title is another way of saying that a nation must have the power and will for self-sacrifice as well as the power and will for self-protection. In the book, Roosevelt, who also wrote extensively on the outdoors, vigorously sets forth the "principles of true Americanism" that still reverberate throughout the nation today.

[First World War]
1916. The gelatin silver stereophotographs (uniform external dimensions approximately 57 × 125 mm) are unmounted as issued; all have slight longitudinal curvature (possibly as issued); apart from a few slightly rubbed corners, they are in uniformly fine condition. The photographs are numbered and captioned in the space between the two images; this collection comprises an unbroken run of 100 from '2597. Sentinelles avancées derrière un talus' to '2696. Pêche à la ligne'. There are numerous scenes depicting the misery of life in the trenches (especially when flooded); other main themes include the bodies of German soldiers, artillery batteries, columns of infantry on the move, towns and villages devastated by artillery fire, pastimes in the trenches and military infrastructure. Most appear to have been taken around Maricourt (on the Somme, near Péronne), possibly in 1916, and possibly by the Section photographique de l'armée (SPA). This Army Photographic Section was created in April 1915, with the aim of documenting the war and producing images to counter German propaganda. A number of its photographers were equipped with stereoscopic cameras, most commonly using 6 × 13 cm negatives. Smaller than the traditional tripod-mounted cameras, the compact stereoscopic camera allowed the photographer to move freely across the battlefield (Ministère des armées website). The format and subject matter of these images would seem to support attribution to this unit.

MORGAN, Emanuel and Anne Knish [pseud. Witter Bynner and Arthur
Mitchell Kennerly, 1916. First Edition. Small 8vo. Original printed boards. Covers rubbed with some damping. Internally near fine with damping only faintly continuing to first few leaves. Good overall. INSCRIBED by Witter Bynner to Karl Shapiro: "Emanuel Morgan / has asked me to / send Karl Shapiro / this stray copy / of Spectra which / has turned up / in my house. / So here it goes, / with greetings / from / Witter Bynner / Santa Fe / March 11 / 1953." An excellent association of this infamous poetic hoax, inscribed by Witter Bynner to Karl Shapiro. Shapiro served as Poet Laureate at the Library of Congress, the same entity which administers the Witter Bynner Prize, given each year to two poets selected by the current Poet Laureate. A satire directed at the experimental "isms" invented and championed by Ezra Pound from 1912-1915, Imagism & Vorticism, SPECTRA instead was mistaken as that which is was attempting to mock: a new verse movement.

Bely, Andrei
Tipografiya Stasyulevicha, Petrograd, 1916. First edition, during the author's lifetime. In an original publisher's cover, preserved in a box. Andrei Bely (real name Boris Nikolaevich Bugaev, 1880-1934), Russian writer, philologist, philosopher, symbolist theorist. He was probably the most amazing and unusual writer and thinker of the Silver Age, in whose worldview mathematics and natural sciences intertwined with mysticism and occultism, philosophy and poetry. His acute sense of the world crisis turned into apocalyptic expectations, with hopes of restoring humanity's historical optimism. The novel "Petersburg" has long been recognized as one of the outstanding works of the Russian symbolism. The author began active work on the novel in 1912, being, according to the memoirs of the author himself, in a state of "influx". The time and place of the action is St Petersburg in the initial period of the First Russian Revolution (1905). In the novel, there is a secret terrorist organization, a major dignitary Apollon Apollonovich Ableukhov, who should become its victim, agents of the secret police and other characters. The plot of the novel is partly autobiographical. According to the writer Yevgeny Zamyatin, in this book by A. Bely, Petersburg for the first time after N. V. Gogol and F. M. Dostoevsky found its true artist. 409p. Publisher's grey wrappers. Provenance: Eden Martin, prominent American collector. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

[California]. [Railroads]
[Chicago, 1916. Very good.. [12]pp. Original pictorial self-wrappers, stapled. Small contemporary publisher's notice affixed to front wrap. Light wear and dust soiling. Rare promotional for the Salt Lake Route by rail to Los Angeles, and for the attractions of the city itself, published circa 1916. The text touts the population and commerical growth of Los Angeles from the turn of the 20th century, its many attractions, and year-round seasonability. The last leaf provides a summary of ways to arrive on the West Coast via the Salt Lake Route through Las Vegas from Chicago, Minneapolis, and Denver, and prints a full-page map of the route and intermediate stops across Utah, Southern Nevada, and Southern California. The Salt Lake Route was operated by the Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, whose line between the two cities was completed in 1905 under the ownership and direction of Montana mining baron William A. Clark, and as a result it was also known informally as the "Clark Road." With many photographic reproductions of Los Angeles and its attractions just after World War I, including many of the grand Southern California resorts of the day. Not in OCLC.

GAILLARD A.
1916.]. Landscape format watercolour album, 24 x 16 cm, with pen and ink titling design ?Album des Dessins? on front cover. c. 60 leaves, the first 23 with mounted pen and ink drawings, captioned and with trompe l'oeil framing rules. [Vaubecourt, A vigorous and primitive album, with the pencil note on the front endpaper, presumably by its author, ?A. Gaillard . commencé le 20 décembre 1916.? It appears to have been used throughout the war, as the last entry represents a bloodthirsty collaboration of French and American soldiers at the Battle of Thierry. The majority of the drawings relate to Vaubecourt, on the Meuse, with before and after drawings, particularly of the ruined church, but other neighbouring villages such as Louppy-le-Petit and Sermaize. There's no indication that Gaillard was a participant and it is likely that he or she was a local resident. Among pictures of ruined architecture we have a ?groupe de prisonniers subissant une interrogation?, a crashed zeppelin and a crashed German plane, and a version of the mythical ?L'enfant au fusil de Bois?, when the Germans were supposed to have executed a child by firing squad for having a wooden gun.
