It was primarily a botanizing trip, but the journal is devoted mostly to the general aspects of the country and to experiences with more or less hospitable humans and woods that were always hospitable. The book will be warmly welcomed, because it is intensely interesting in itself as well as for the light it throws on the development of a great naturalist."

Privately Printed, New York, 1916. 32pp. plus ten plates (including map and frontispiece). Plus [2]pp. autograph letter, signed, by Ellsworth laid in. Half title. Original red cloth, spine gilt. Spine slightly faded, a bit of light wear to the cloth. Very clean internally. Near fine. A rare and significant firsthand account of one of the last great buffalo hunts in North America. This is a presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by Ellsworth on February 17, 1916 to Marie Peary Stafford, and with her bookplate on the front pastedown. Tipped to the rear endpaper is an envelope containing an autograph letter, signed, from Ellsworth to Peary, also dated February 17, in which he presents her with this copy and comments on the hunt and the writing of the book. Lincoln Ellsworth (1880-1951) is best known for his Polar explorations and his benefactions to the American Museum of Natural History. Here he describes his adventures hunting buffalo high in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana in 1911. "The last good sized buffalo herd in this country belonged to a Mexican named Pablo and ranged on the Flathead Reservation in Montana. When the reservation was opened up for settlement, Pablo sold his herd of buffalos to the Canadian government. After a round-up of four years, some old outlaws were still at large. It was these that Ellsworth was permitted to hunt. He tells here a good story of a hunt lasting nearly three weeks in which he finally brought down one old veteran" - Streeter. The illustrations show scenes from the hunt and the text is highly descriptive of Ellswor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rackham, Arthur; Gosse, Edmund
London: William Heinemann, 1916. Fine.. Signed limited first edition, one of only 525 copies, of this patriotic wartime book of fairy tales with traditional stories from all the countries who had joined the Allied Forces by 1916. In the introduction Edmund Gosse explains that the stories were collected to connect "the fighting friends of humanity," citing the "almost universal distribution of fairy tales." In addition to familiar classics like "Jack the Giant-Killer" (England) and "Sleeping Beauty" (France), the anthology includes tales from countries less commonly remembered as allies during the First World War, including "The Fox's Wedding" (Japan) and "Cesarino and the Dragon" (Italy). Because the United States did not enter the war until 1917, no American tale is included; Gosse notes that "since we went to press, we have received the good news that Rumania has joined the eight Allies. In another edition, we hope to give a specimen of her folk-lore, and (who knows?) of that of some other friendly Power." The blue tones of the two-headed Welsh giant depicted in the frontispiece and the golden peahens of the Serbian tale are particularly stunning, and excellent examples of Rackham's disciplined use of color and line.

Edwards, J. Gordon (director); William Shakespeare (play); Adrian Johnson (screenwriter); Theda Bara, Harry Hilliard, Glen White (starring)
Fox Film, Fort Lee, NJ. Vintage bifold program for Los Angeles' Clune's Theatres' two day 1916 engagement of the 1916 silent film starring Theda Bara, now lost, with a striking four color exterior and interior composite of five black and white studio still images. Clune's Theatre opened in 1909 and was located in Los Angeles at 107 W. 5th and 453 S. Main streets, seating 1000. The date of the theatre's demolition (to make way for the Rosslyn Hotel) is unclear, with some sources saying as early as 1915, others 1917. As this program features a 1916 film, the latter is apparently correct, making "Romeo and Juliet" one of its' last features. In 1916 film studios were celebrating the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and both Fox Film and Metro Pictures had each been vying to release their version of "Romeo and Juliet". Metro Picture's version, directed by John W. Noble and Francis X. Bushman, and starring Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Baye, was released just three days prior to the Fox Film version. Bushman would later claim when he saw Fox's version he was startled to see intertitles from his version used in the Fox version and that William Fox had spies working at Metro steal them. Theda Bara, who played Juliet, was a popular silent film star whose femme fatale roles earned her the nickname "The Vamp" and made more than 40 films between 1914 and 1926, most of which were lost in the 1937 Fox vault fire. Director James Gordon Edwards was Fox Film's premiere director and would direct all of Fox Film's big budget spectacles, including all of Theda Bara's films between 19 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Piper, 1919.- Vorzüglicher Abdruck mit vollem Rand und dem Blindstempel der Marées Gesellschaft. Eins von 40 Exx. auf Japan, vor Verstählung der Platte. Literatur: Hofmaier 89 B a; Beckmann Liste 85; Glaser 83; Gallwitz 66. Max Beckmann zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Künstlern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Basierend auf neuen Kunstauffassungen des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts, wie etwa dem Impressionismus und Expressionismus, sowie altmeisterlichen Kunsttraditionen entwickelte Beckmann einen ganz eigenen Stil, der bewußt als Gegenposition zum abstrakt-geometrischen Stil, etwa dem Kubismus oder Futurismus, verstanden werden wollte und die Figur in den Mittelpunkt seines Schaffens stellt. Nach einer Ausbildung an der Weimarer Kunstschule bei C.F. Smith (1859-1917) hielt Beckmann sich u.a. in Paris, Holland und Florenz auf und ließ sich 1904 in Berlin nieder. 1914 war er Mitbegründer der „Freien Sezession Berlin", 1919 der „Darmstädter Sezession". 1925-1932 lehrte er am Städelschen Kunstinstitut. Daneben unterhielt er ein Atelier in Paris. 1933 wurde er von den Nationalsozialisten seines Amtes enthoben, er zog nach Berlin. 1937 wurden seine Bilder auf der Münchner Ausstellung „Entartete Kunst" ausgestellt, wo auch sie als „artfremd" diffamiert wurden. Im darauffolgenden Jahr zog er nach London, ging dann aber nach Amsterdam. Nach der Besetzung der Niederlande durch die Deutschen mußte er in den Untergr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ur Victor von Stedingks bibliotek, med exlibris och namnteckning. Med Hans Sallanders minneord över Otto Walde inklistrad på första delens försättsblad. Felbunden såtillvida att första textarket till andra delen (s. 1-16) är bundet i slutet av första delen. Fint proveniensexemplar av den fortfarande grundläggande studien över svenska bokrov under framförallt krigen i Tyskland, Tjeckien, Polen och Danmark under 1600-talet. Walde inventerar de svenska offentliga biblioteken och identifierar provenienser från orter som berördes av de svenska trupperna och kan därigenom belägga både från vilka orter böckerna togs och vilka samlingar som ingick. Dessutom gör han en uttömmande utredning om hur samlingarna byggts upp innan svenskarna kom, och vad som skedde med samlingarna i Sverige. Victor von Stedingk hade själv en fin samling av krigsbytesband. Bibliofilupplaga tryckt i 200 numrerade exemplar, detta är nummer 73. Den enklare avhandlingsupplagan saknar planscher.

Hi, This lot is an Original 1916 Wisden Paperback with facsimile spine. This is in Very Good condition, the only two things to note is a small rubbing to the front cover on the right and the spine is a slightly different colour to the book. Other than that is is magnificent and a very rare year. The covers are clean, nice and tall. They are nice and bright yellow too. A nice new spine with text has been added , it is neat and tidy but not an exact copy of an original Wisden. Excellent inside with clean pages and tightly bound. Tip top. New spine professionally added which makes the book readable and stops it falling apart. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Hi, This lot is an Original 1916 Wisden Paperback - the rarest 20th Century Paperback. This lot is in Good condition. The only down side is that there are 2 pieces of tape to the covers which are strengthening the spine, there is also a small loss to the spine cloth with some of the text of 1916 missing. Other than this it is a very nice book, very clean pages inside, tightly bound and 100% original. A hard year to find and at a reduced price due to the tape to the covers. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

One small group of photos shows a winter scene in the area and the album ends with a landscape photo from the peak of a small mountain. An interesting collection of photographs depicting Maine women enjoying nature. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Paris, 1916. Lunga missiva in francese su carta azzurrina in formato cm.15,9x112, su carta intestata "80, Avenue du Bois de Boulogne", compilata su tre di quattro facciate rispettivamente su 21, 22 e 10 righe, con bella firma estesa "Claude Debussy". Grafìa minutissima e diligente. "Dimanche [28 mai 1916], Cher Monsieur, À quoi répond le besoin d'une alliance musicale franco-italienne, n'existe-t-elle pas depuis longtemps et que veut-on de plus? La musique française est, au surplus, assez grande pour se défendre. Qu'elle se soit laissée envahir pendant un temps, par l'opérette viennoise, d'une part, par le drame wagnérien, d'autre part, n'est dû qu'à une évolution à laquelle il était difficile d'échapper . Remercions les Italiens et l'Italie où la musique pousse à travers les pierres, mais tâchons de faire de la musique bien française, c'est ce qu'on peut nous souhaiter de mieux, car cela fait partie des victoires futures, et pas des moindres, soyons-en sûrs. A peine convalescent d'une maladie qui dure depuis le mois de décembre 1915, vous voudrez bien excuser ce qu'à d'un peu court ma réponse à un tel sujet? Croyez, cher monsieur, à ma sincère cordialité" . Achille-Claude Debussy (Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 1862 ? 1918), sollecitato da un'inchiesta giornalistica, risponde esaustivamente sul tema della necessità o meno di un'alleanza musicale italo - francese. La lettera è scritta il 28 maggio 1916, forse inviata al corrispondente Armand Ephraim, e verrà pubblicata parzialmente, assieme ad altri illustri pareri sul medesimo tema, l'11 giugno 1916 su "Le Cri de Paris", inserita … [Click Below for Full Description]

Decorative endpapers. Original color printed dust jacket with a reproduction of the color plate facing page 16 in the book.

A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. "The tales of this book, both written and illustrated by Dulac, were drawn from the folklore of Russia, England, Flanders, Belgium, Italy, France, Ireland, Serbia and Japan. Dulac was able to employ the full scope of his versatility in creating a national mood in each illustration. During this period of his work, Dulac had immersed himself in the artistic traditions of folklore. He was partly stimulated by his friendship with Yeats (whose interest in Celtic folklore was legendary) and partly awakened to ethnic themes by his 1913 cruise through the eastern Mediterranean. Also at this time he was influenced by his encounters with the Russian-born designer Léon Bakst and Bakst's stage work for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes" (Hughey). Hughey 47a.[Attributes: First Edition]

A very good copy of this poorly produced book, in the dust jacket, a couple of short closed tears to spine ends, slight nicks, chips and creasing to extremities. First edition, first impression. This is a collection of 12 articles in which Wells offers his predictions on the political and economic changes that will come to the world in the wake of the First World War. Wells "boldly opened What is Coming?, a new book of prophesy and forecast, by invoking his modest scientific training again as one of the most important factors in his reliability as a prophet. 'But for some of us moderns, who have been touched with the spirit of science, prophesying is almost a habit of mind"' (Feir, p. 176). Gordon D. Feir, H. G. Wells at the End of His Tether (2005).

Harry Clarke Monograph, No. 27. - Seltene erste Ausgabe der wohl schönsten englischen Ausgabe der Märchen. - Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen was Clarke's first published commission. This book remains one of the scarcest and most sought after illustrated Andersen's fairy tales book. Clarke illustrated only ten books. - Harry Clarke (1889-1931) lived a tragically short, but highly successful life as an artist in Ireland. Despite his brief career, Clarke is widely considered one of the greatest European illustrators, alongside Arthur Rackham, Aubrey Beardsley, Kay Nielsen and Edmund Dulac. Known for his work in both illustration and in stained glass, he was instrumental in cementing Ireland's place in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. - „Mr. Clarke brings to Hans Andersen an entirely fresh interpretation, and he appeals to the intellectual emotions of art-lovers, who will find in his work satisfaction of their craving for new and unconventional treatment of themes which may never be exhausted while the spirit of life exists in art. Mr. Clarke is a craftsman who devotes to each drawing an infinity of pains which is little less than marvelous, and it is difficult to know which to admire most-his fresh conceptions or his delicate and intricate detail..."

JERMYN, Major Frederick David
1916. Foolscap folio, 22 leaves (rectos only) with a few manuscript addenda and corrigenda; three horizontal creases where folded; small puncture from the original metal fastener to all top left-hand corners; last leaf heavily chipped around the edges, with an old (short) tape repair; occasional chips to the edges of the other leaves; in very good condition, and now housed in individual sheet protectors. Although this significant account is transcribed, we can find no record that the original diary is held in any institutional collection, or indeed that it survives. The Australian War Memorial has a small collection of material relating to the Boer War service of 'Captain Surgeon Frederick David Jermyn', including 'photocopied extracts from the hand written memoirs ... describing his experiences as a medical officer ... in the South African War', but merely notes that he 'served as a major in the Australian Army Medical Corp during the First World War. Suffering illness, he was invalided to Australia in late 1916 [read 1915] and his appointment terminated in early 1916'. Frederick David Jermyn (1866-1948) was a Mt Gambier general practitioner aged 49 when he embarked on HMAT A35 'Berrima' in December 1914. The transcript commences when they 'Struck Camp at Heliopolis' and marched to Cairo. The first five pages describe the not uneventful journey to Lemnos Island, where, in Mudros Bay, they practised disembarking 'up and down rope pilot ladders in full landing kit.

Scoresby, William.
New York, The Explorers Club. 1916-1917. "Issued in fac-simile with reproductions in color of portraits in oils of Captain William Scoresby, Senior and of Captain William Scoresby, Junior. Introduction and notes by Frederick S. Dellenbaugh." This set is #130 in a limited edition of 300 copies. All but three copies were placed in institutions, accounting for the scarcity of this set on the market. According to an old Eberstadt catalog, "Three hundred copies printed and plates destroyed; all copies permanently deposited in institutions, except for three presented to individuals: Dellenbaugh, Bartlett, and Stefansson. Although perhaps the most important work on whaling and early far-northern exploration ever to achieve print, apparently the desire of the patron, the late James B. Ford, that no copy should ever come on the market, has until now been fulfilled. The only record of the work is an appraisal made in 1937 by a qualified person, placing its value at a minimum of one thousand dollars. The log-books, describing fourteen voyages into the Arctic seas from 1786 onward, are invaluable records of early northern navigation, whale fishing, and original exploration. Scoresby was the most successful whaler and ice navigator that ever lived; a foremost proponent of the Northwest Passage; inventor of the top-gallant "crow's nest," the ice drill, and much whaling equipment..."

One of 1,000 copies printed for Sanger by an Oregon union organizer, possibly with funds provided by Marie Equi (Helquist, p. 274).

A major achievement in quantum physics, where Schrodinger mathematically treats quantum mechanical systems as wave phenomena and describes the time-evolution of a system's wave function. Here he presents it in the first four papers, or one article in four parts, and a fifth, in which he compares matrix mechanics to his own wave mechanics. These papers had a profound effect, resulting in the emergence of wave mechanics. This would serve as the basis for Schrodinger contributions, with which he would go on to win the Nobel prize in Physics in 1933. Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]
