         Cours de linguistique générale. Publié par Charles Bally et Albert Sechehaye. Avec la collaboration de Albert Riedlinger.

      Lausanne & Paris, 1916. Lex 8vo. Uncut in the orig. printed wrappers. A bit of wear, especially to back hinge, which is a bit torn and weak. Small lack of paper to margin of front wrapper and front free end-paper. Capitals a bit worn. Internally very nice and clean. Text-illustrations. 336, (1, -errata) pp. ¶ The first edition of Saussure's seminal main work, which marks a turning point in the history of linguistics and had a monumental impact on related fields such as philosophy, logic, sociology, literary theory, etc. Because of this work, Saussure is considered the father of 20th century linguistics, and the influence of his ideas on the development of linguistic theory in the first half of the 20th century can hardly be overstated.

After having published his "Mémoire sur le système primitif des voyelles dans les langues indo-européenes" in 1878, Saussure did not publish another full-length work in his life-time, and his "Course in General Linguistics" is a summary of the three lecture-courses he gave on linguistics at the University of Geneva in 1906-07, 1908-09 and 1910-11. The work was published posthumously by two of his former students and based on lecture notes. In this monumental work, based on his lectures, Saussure sets out to examine the relationship between language (langue) and speaking (parole), both as the relation of a social phenomenon to an individual phenomenon, and as the relation of a system to the concrete use of this system. He determines that there is a structured system of common signs between the users of a language, and that language can be analyzed as a formal system of elements. These elements are signs, signs that again can be divided into expression (signifiant) and content (signifié). This theory of language has deeply influenced all later theories of language.

With this work, Ferdinand Saussure (1857-1913) thus came to occupy a seminal place in the history of language theory. In this work he is strongly focused on creating a science of language, free of its former embedment in archaeology, psychology, and also -or perhaps especially- the history of language. And he succeeds. Before his work, linguistics had had been dominated by a historical, though also partly structural, understanding of language, but now, Saussure introduced and determined the purpose and meaning of linguistics, the universal science of language.

With Sausurre, linguistics now became, not only the study of the history of languages and of the influences that determine the development of it, but also, and primarily, the study of language and the study of the manifestations of human speech, of what makes human speech possible.

Thus, there is no doubt as to the monumental impact of this groundbreaking work, and almost all language theoreticians ever since have been deeply influenced by it. In Europe, the Prague School with e.g. Roman Jakobson and the Copenhagen School with e.g. Louis Hjelmslev, and in America, Leonard Bloomfield and his followers (later Noam Chomsky), were all influenced by Saussure's theories and based their formings of structural linguistics on his basic notions.
Saussure's work reached much farther, though, and the principles of structuralism came to deeply influence thinkers such as Jacques Lacan, Claude Lévi-Strauss etc., etc.

         A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      - FIRST EDITION OF JOYCE'S CLASSIC FIRST NOVEL. "No one could overestimate the effects of [the book] on later Irish writers ? Or on the national psyche: many young Irishmen came to painful consciousness reading those corrosive pages. The Dublin of my student days was strewn with versions of Stephen Dedalus, including myself. Little failed saints. We knew eternity too early" (John Montague). "Joyce's novel remains vital, in contrast to almost all other novels published in 1916, because he forcefully strived toward an idiosyncratic form of expression, a language intrinsic to the story he wanted to tell, about the young protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, and his formative years in Dublin, in which uniqueness was the very point and the question of what constitutes the individual was the issue posed" (New York Times). Note: This New York first edition by Huebsch is the true first edition, appearing a month before the English issue (from the New York sheets). New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. Octavo, original cloth. Mild toning (as often) and a little wear to spine, a touch of rubbing to spine ends; minor browning to endpapers with ghost of early tape stubs. A very good copy in original cloth.

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

      Valencia: Prometeo, 1916. First Edition. Cloth. Very good. 1st edition (Valencia, 6,000), 396pp, in Spanish). Original cloth, ripples to the front, a tear and a split along 1 joint strengthened, wear to edges, else very good (also issued in wrappers 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.

         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,

         Responsibilities and Other Poems.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited. 1916 - Octavo. Original decoratively gilt blue cloth designed by Sturge Moore, front and spine lettered in gilt, edges uncut. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Gilt rather dull, notably at the spine. Very good. Cover design by T. Sturge Moore First edition, first impression, a canonical presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the month of publication, "Ezra Pound from W. B. Yeats Oct 1916". Below this on the front free endpaper is Pound's ownership blindstamp, giving his address at 5 Holland Place Chambers, Kensington W. Pound and Yeats lived and worked together in close quarters in Sussex over the course of three winters (1913–1916). Yeats told his father: "Ezra Pound and his wife are staying with me, we have four rooms of a cottage on the edge of a heath and our back is to the woods". They collaborated on a number of works, including Yeats's first volume of autobiography, Reveries, Pound taking dictation from the senior poet and typing the finished product for the printer. The inscription here dates from the last months of their close association: Yeats also presented him a copy of the first English edition of Reveries at the same time. Pound, as a sort of secretary, had a huge shaping influence over Yeats's prosody, pushing him to modernise his voice. Responsibilities is indeed the collection through which Yeats's poetry moved out of the mists of the Celtic twilight and into the harsher, harder light of the Modern movement. Pound's influence was central to this, and he may well be said to be the "miglior fabbro" of Yeats's verse, as he had been with Eliot's The Waste Land. A collection of Yeats's poems entitled Responsibilities was first published by the Cuala Press in 1914. This London edition, consisting of 1,000 copies, prints those 31 poems and adds "The Well and Tree", together with 19 poems from The Green Helmet (Cuala Press, 1910) and two poems from the New York edition of 1912, as well as The Hour-Glass, 1912. Pound had reviewed the shorter Cuala Press edition of Responsibilities admiringly in Poetry, March 1914, p. 223. Wade 115. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

         Goliath and David.

      London: Chiswick Press, [1916] - Octavo, pp. 20. Original plain red wrappers. Wrappers a little creased and faded to edges, a few faint spots to contents. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by Graves's father on behalf of the author to Henry Newbolt (1862–1938), the English poet and writer, on the title page: "Sir Henry Newbolt, from his admirer the author, via his father Alfred Perceval Graves. March 9th, 1917. Captain, 3rd Batt., Royal Welch Fusiliers". This copy, sent at the behest of a shell-shocked Robert Graves to Henry Newbolt, best known then, and infamous now, for his patriotic "Vitaï Lampada" poem of the 1890s comparing warfare to a game of cricket, with its much-satirised refrain "Play up! Play up! and play the game!", is particularly poignant. At the time of publication, February 1917, Graves was recuperating from bronchitis, first at Somerville College, Oxford, and then at Harlech, where he wrote to Sassoon, who had helped him edit and distribute the book, on 26 March 1917: "Dear old Sassons, please forgive my not writing: it has been one of the worst symptoms of my late collapse that I haven't been able to make up my mind to start or finish the most pressing things, and the correspondence about Goliath and David has been most exacting". At the start of the First World War, Newbolt and other leading British writers were recruited into the War Propaganda Bureau (WPB), which was formed to help maintain public opinion in favour of the war effort. Two hundred copies of this early privately printed work, the author's second publication, were produced in late 1916 and distributed early in 1917. Higginson & Williams A2; Reilly p.146.

      Prague: Frantisek Borovy 1916 - Octavo, wrappers, 154 (iv)pp. The first edition of this work, with six ink drawings by Vincenc Beneš. The most widely read and appreciated of Weiner’s expressionist collections, this work was written shortly after the author’s convalescence from a nervous breakdown he suffered at the front. The illustrations of Vincenc Beneš (1883-1979) are strong statements of the cubo-expressionist style he employed at that time. Beneš was an important figure during the Czech cubist period.

         Joe Pine

      Lamoni, IA: Herald Publishing House, 1916. Hardcover. Illustrations by Paul N. Craig. Small 8vo. Green cloth with red rules and black lettering and decorations. 352pp. Frontispiece, 7 full-page called-for plates. Very good. Binding a bit edgeworn and rubbed, though internally fine. A tight, attractive first edition of this scarce fiction by the grandson of Mormon founder Joseph Smith Jr. This superb presentation copy bears a full page inscription from the author on frontispiece verso: "Mrs Inez Kinney: / Having known the joy / and beauty of the prairie / days, now gone for-ever, / you may perhaps appreciate / my pen picture of the / prairie, even if they are / not the best. Oh, yes, / and I must thank you / for posing for the heroine / As a peace offering to / atone for the liberty taken / in drafting you for that / position, please accept / this book with my / compliments -- / Elbert A. Smith." Inez Kinney Gaylord (1882-1974) was a New York-born worker for the YWCA who in 1914 married Edward K. Gaylord (1873-1974), the noted owner/publisher of the Daily Oklahoman as well as radio and television entrepreneur and civil leader/philanthropist. How and when Smith crossed paths with Inez Kinney is not known, but she impressed him enough to become the inspiration for this book's heroine, Molly Brady. Also, laid in is an unsigned Autograph Note pencilled on a heavy stock 5" X 3" card (undated, but of relatively modern vintage) in which the unknown writer transcribes a letter written from Elbert Smith to his/her grandmother, Luda Cook Smith of Mason City, Iowa, in which the author records "I modeled two characters after your father & mother...." That father and mother were Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor winner Captain Henry I. Smith (1840-1910) and his wife Delight Bogardus Smith (1845-1924). Whether all these Smiths are related to Elbert Smith is unclear. Elbert A. Smith (1871-1959) wrote many fiction and nonfiction titles with a Mormon emphasis; he was a leader of the RLDS Church (Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), serving as a member of that church's First Presidency (1909-38) and as Presiding Patriarch (1939-58). A very scarce title with absolutely unique and lengthy author inscription to his heroine's model.

Stabilimento Trieste Zaule, Veduta generale, Piazzale, Caldaie, Sala Macchine, Magazzino Olii... Gerolamo Gaslini nasce a Monza il 3 luglio 1877 da Pietro, uno dei pionieri della moderna industria degli oli di semi, e da Bambina Baggioli. Gaslini si trasferisce a Genova all'inizio dell'ultimo decennio del XIX secolo. Nel 1896 fonda una ditta inserendosi nel commercio degli oli di semi. Nel gennaio del 1907, insieme al fratello Egidio costituisce la società in nome collettivo Fratelli Gaslini. Nel 1914 i due fratelli impiantano una fabbrica di spremitura e raffinazione di olio di semi a Bolzaneto, in Val Polcevera. L'impresa si trasforma in società anonima con sede a Genova, con un capitale che nel giugno 1916 è di 5 milioni, portato successivamente a 10 milioni, diviso in parti uguali fra i due fratelli. Nel dopoguerra la Gaslini avvia una strategia espansiva che si concretizza nell'acquisizione di impianti di spremitura e raffinazione a Trieste e a Fiume, accrescendo le sue quote di mercato.... Dal 1949, tuttavia, Gaslini opera una scelta precisa che lega le vicende dell'impresa a quelle dell'Istituto pediatrico. Il 28 novembre di quell'anno, infatti, egli costituisce la Fondazione Gerolamo Gaslini con lo scopo di potenziare l'Istituto, trasferendole in proprietà l'intero capitale sociale della società anonima Gaslini, per un valore totale di 1,3 miliardi di lire, rappresentante l'intero suo patrimonio. A partire dal momento in cui la Fondazione diventa persona giuridica di diritto pubblico, nel novembre 1950, le rendite della Gaslini e delle partecipazioni azionarie di Gaslini affluiscono alla Fondazione, contribuendo così al funzionamento dell'Ospedale.
