        A Portrait of The Artist as a Young Man.

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916 - Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles and decoration to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, plain burgundy coated endpapers, gilt edges. A fine copy. First edition, first printing. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialisation of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. So it was Huebsch that undertook the true first publication. He would send from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK in February 1917. Whilst the number of copies issued in America is undetermined the number could not have been large since he had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man was Joyce's first novel and introduces to the world one of the two key characters in Ulysses. Stephen Dedalus was created by the author as a kind of doppelganger - the author as he would have been had he not left Ireland in 1904. Its opening sentence by itself redefining what a novel could be. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Signed Manuscript Documents - Caucasus Oilfields - Signed By the Only Prime Minsiter of the Short-Lived "Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus", Abdul Tapa Tchermoeff

      Grozny, Russia, 1916. Grozny, Russia, 1913-1921. Archive of original documents pertaining to the British investment in the Tchermoeff Estate North Caucasian oilfields, owned by Abdul Tapa Tchermoeff, a leading and most active pioneer of the Grozny oil industry, and the only Prime Minister of the short-lived "Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus" state. Numerous documents are signed in the original by Tchermoef; as well by Sir Frederick Mitchell Hodgson who was a British colonial Governor of the Gold Coast, then Barbados, and British Guiana; as well as other British shareholders, directors, and the like. Also featuring the signature and wax seal of James Whishaw, a pioneering Englishman in the Russian oil market, on a manuscript double leaf vellum indenture. The lot comprises 1 large manuscript survey plan and 33 documents, including legal agreements, letters, shareholder notices, meeting minutes, and indentures (one on vellum). Some age-toning, loss to corner of one letter, otherwise the lot in very good condition, a pleasing archive of consequence in the Anglo-Russian oil connection. A fine example of British investment in the Caucasian oil fields, these legal documents outline the affairs of a company established in London in 1908, the 'Anglo-Russian International Syndicate Limited', which was voluntarily disovled in 1913 to form the 'New Caucasian Oilfields, Limited', specifically relating to investments made in the northern Caucasus on the estate of Abdul Medjid Tchermoeff - the only ever Prime Minister of the Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus, who was forced into exile by the advancing Bolsheviks. Upon the death of his father, a well known Rusian General, Tapa Tchermoeff inherited important oil-bearing land in the Grozny area when he was only 16 years old. Forthwith he immersed himself into economic and industrial activities, capitalizing on British interest in Russian oil. The lot is replete with Tapa Tchermoeff's original signatures, as he remained directly involved in all transactions. [It was the oil industry that transformed Grozny from a small town reminiscent of its position as a Russian military outpost, to a geographical center of Russia's network of oil fields, doubling its population between 1893 and 1913. [On 22 April 1914, The Times from London announced activities of the above Angol-Russo venture, "Caucasian (Tchermoeff) Oilfeilds Limited... Plots adjoining those on which the greatest companies of Russia are drilling wells in the New Tchermoeff-Belik Field, where our wells have already proved the probability of large productions... have acquire favourably situated plots... in the Grosny district. 13 mile from here a well of the Standard Russe Company (Shell) struck in January, 1913... Three other wells hare been brought in and about 30 derricks are now erected... the plan published on this page shows how many plots have been taken up by important oil companies... 'the Standard Russe, New Caucasian Oilfields, Russian and General Oil Corporation..."] Highlights of the archive include: A large manuscript survey plan of the Tchermoeff Estate drawn in now obsolete Russian units of measure, dessatines and sajens. The area encompasses 659 dessatines, 231 sq. saschens, to be leased out for the production of oil and gas, specifically highlighting sections for Grozterek Syndicate Limited. The surveyor includes bordering lands of the Bielik estate, the Komonoff estate leased to Russian Standard (Shell Co.), and the commercial lands of the villages of Aldy and Tchetchen. Plan measures 701 x 62 cm, made on a fine waxed linen, and signed by Tapa Tchermoeff. A detailed geological survey, dated 23/5th August 1913 Baku, in which is examined in fastidious detail, specific plots on the Tchermoeff Estate u, which included extraction and analysis of oil samples, performed for the Anglo-Russian International Syndicate Limited, by F.G. Rappoport of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (M.I.Mech.E.) in London. Royal Quarto, typed bound document, 12 pages plus title page. One string-tied notarized document bearing Russian stamps and the signature of George John Sargent, assistant registrar for the company, whom is certifying an Extraordinary Resolution which increases share holdings. Large vellum indenture with the signature and red wax seal of James Whishaw, a pioneering English businessman in the Russian oil market who lived in St. Petersburg, and stamped by the British Consulate in St. Petersburg. Made in January 1914, this document confirms a deed of September 1913 for the purchase of for all leasehold rights for 5 plots of land on Tchermoeff Estate, and royalties to be remunerated for any oil, gas, or crude oil products extracted. Whishaw has been further appointed as trustee of the company named New Caucasian Oilfields Limited, incorporated in London in 1908. Double leaf vellum, 3 pages in manuscript, hand ruled and measuring 26 x 40 cm. [Of British descent, and born in Archangel, Russia, James Whishaw (1853 - 1935) was one of the first investors in the Baku "oil Klondike" when in 1890 he bought the oil fields of the S. M. Shibayev company, and then, in 1897, those owned by Gadzhy Tagiyev. In the 1890s, other British capitalists led by James Whishaw founded several firms in Baku.] Original Prospectus for subscription in the New Caucasian Oilfields Limited, signed in the original by the company's Directors, including Abdul Tapa Tchermoeff, Sir Frederick Mitchell Hodgson, and Nikolai Speransky, and with the original accompanying plan of the "New Grozny Oilfield" measuring 49,5 x 38 cm. Corporate Merger Agreements, Sale Agreements, Shareholder Loan Agreements, One Expenses Agreement, all pertaining to legal transactions of two Anglo-Russian companies, the New Caucasian Oilfields Limited and its predecessor the Anglo-Russian International Syndicate Limited. Folio double-leaf manuscript documents, measuring approximately 11 x 33 cm. some string-tied, many with revenue stamps, Numerous original signatures from the following individuals, among others: • Abdul "Tapa" Medjid Bey Ortsa Tchermoeff (1882-1937), elite Russian military officer, a distinguished leader in the development of Grozni oil industry, and the only Prime Minister of the Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus • Nikolai Sergeevich Speransky (1857-1909), Special Secretary to the Minister of Finance of the Imperial Russian Government • Sir Frederick Mitchell Hodgson (1851-6 1925), who was Governor of the Gold Coast from 1898-1900, Barbados from 1900-1904 and British Guiana from 1904-1911 • Colonel William Francis Henry Style Kincaid, (late Royal Engineers) was an Assistant Quartermaster-General, Administrative Staff, Aldershot Army Corps, Companion of the Order of the Bath • Lieutenant-General Sir Reginald Pole-Carew (1849-1924), a British Army officer who served as a staff officer with Lord Roberts in the Second Anglo-Afghan War in 1878, and during the Second Boer War, and who was later a Member of Parliament for Bodmin In addition, pertaining to the company's solicitors, Messrs Mayo Elder & Co. we find a summary of titles to royalties from thirteen separate investments in Russian Oil as at 1922, together with 4 manuscript letters relating to Mayo's Gold Coast investments in the Broomasssie mines (1906). Abdul "Tapa" Medjid Bey Ortsa Tchermoeff (1882-1937) was a Lieutenant en Reserve de la Garde Imperial, and the only Prime Minister of the Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus. He was in office from May 11, 1918 until the entire government was forced into exile by the advancing Bolsheviks in 1921. Born in Grozny, Chechnya, Tapa was the eldest son of the well-known General Ortsou Tchermoeff. He was educated in St. Petersburg. In 1901 he joined an elite military unit, His Majesty Tsar Nicholas II's Own Life Guard Convoy. Upon the death of his father, a well known Rusian General, Tapa Tchermoeff inherited important oil-bearing land in the Grozny area when he was only 16 years old. Forthwith he immersed himself into economic and industrial activities, capitalizing on British interest in Russian oil. World War I interrupted Tapa's economic activity. He joined the famous native Savage Division of the Imperial Russian Army with the rank of Captain. In the war he proved himself a brilliant military leader and a fearless soldier. After the October Revolution, Tapa returned to his native land intent to preventing the rise of Bolshevism in Chechnya. Believing that the unification of all Caucasian highlanders would be the only means of staving off the Northern Caucasus from the Bolsheviks, on his initiative the various groups decided to form an independent highland state. On 11 May 1918 The Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus was officially established. Tapa was first the prime minister and then the minister for foreign affairs. Early in March 1919, Tapa headed a delegation to Paris in an attempt to take part in the Treaty of Versailles, in hopes to secure the recognition of the independence of the state. Alas, the following year later the North Caucasus were in the hands of the Bolsheviks and in January 1921 the Soviet Mountain Republic of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic was established. The Mountainous Republic of the Northern Caucasus (1917-1920) was a short-lived state situated in North Caucasus (Ciscaucasia). It included most of the territory of the former Terek Oblast and Dagestan Oblast of the Russian Empire, which now form the republics of Chechnya, Ingushetia, North Ossetia-Alania, Kabardino-Balkaria, Dagestan and part of Stavropol Krai of the Russian Federation. The "Union of the Peoples of the Northern Caucasus" was created in March 1917, and an Executive Committee of the Union was elected. The Chairman of the Executive Committee was one of the leaders of the National-Liberation movement of the Peoples of the Northern Caucasus, Tapa Tchermoeff. The "Nizam" of Imam Shamil (the Constitution of Shamil of 1847) was adopted on 5 August 1917 by the "Central Committee of the Northern Caucasus". The republic was officially established on 11 May 1918, after the collapse of the Russian Tsarist empire in the Russian revolution of 1917, when the Government of the MRNC was established. The Mountainous Republic was de jure recognized by the Ottoman Empire, Germany, the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, the Democratic Republic of Georgia and the Kuban People's Republic. In June 1920, the MRNC was occupied by the Red Army of Bolshevik Russia and the Government of the republic was forced to leave the Caucasus. In January 1921, the Soviet Mountain Republic of the Russian SFSR was established. The Grozni oil-fields are situated on the northern slope of the Caucasian Mountains, and are connected with the Vladi-Caucas railway by the Baku line. Deep boring began there in 1903, as hand-dug wells. The important oil horizons lay very deep in this field, and Grozni oil was particularly suitable for the production of high-class benzine. The total of the drillings executed in 1913 were 203,000 feet: in 1914, 290,000 feet: in 1915, 181,930 feet: and in 1916, 158,307 feet. During the 1860s Russia saw many reforms, which resulted in a powerful impetus to its economic development, and by 1900 Russia's industrial output grew seven times, increasing demand for metal, coal and especially oil. In February 1872, Emperor Alexander II approved two fundamental documents: the Rules of Oil Production and the Exacting of Excise Duties from Photogen Production; and the Rules of Turning Over to Private Producers the State-Owned Sources of Oil Leased Out in the Caucasian and Transcaucasian Regions. Restrictive feudal lease systems were lifted and the oil business in Russia had obtained its long-awaited freedom. Prince Grigory Golitsyn, a chief representative of the Russian government in the Caucasus in 1897-1904, had no illusions about the poor technical know-how, business acumen or money accumulations of the local population. "It is still very difficult to do without foreign capital in the Caucasus," he remarked sorrowfully. Sergey Vitte, Finance Minister of the Russian Empire, was in full agreement. As a result, government resolutions were issued which greatly encouraged foreign capital to the Apsheron oil fields. Subsequently, in London numerous joint-stock companies were set up whose purpose was to operate the Caucasian oil fields. And, simultaneously, Russian and British banks took active interest in railway bonds in the Caucasus. . Very Good.

        Camera Work: Issue Number 48

      Alfred Stieglitz, New York 1916 - FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST CELEBRATED ISSUES OF CAMERA WORK: Issue number 48, introducing the work of Paul Strand. Complete with 9 original photogravures, including 1 by Frank Eugene, 6 by Paul Strand, 1 by Arthur Allen Lewis, and 1 by Francis Bruguière as well as 6 half-tone reproductions after photographs of '291' by Alfred Stieglitz. With original texts by Marius De Zayas and Marsden Hartley. "When in 1915 Stieglitz saw Strand's radically new approach to photography, which embraced the inherent characteristics of the medium and its materials together with the ideas of the artistic avant-garde, he felt committed, once again, to communicate in Camera Work the importance of photography as a vital art form. Stieglitz had been striving for precisely this synthesis of formal abstraction and poetic expressiveness, a synthesis which embodied an American aesthetic and syntax. In his October 1916 issue of Camera Work, Stieglitz wrote of Strand: 'His work is rooted in the best traditions of photography. His vision is potential. His work is pure. It is direct. It does not rely upon tricks of process. In whatever he does there is applied intelligence. In the history of photography there are but few photographers who, from the point of view of expression, have really done work of any importance. And by importance we mean work that has some relatively lasting quality, that element which gives all art its real significance'" (Kaspar M. Fleischmann in American Photography: Local and Global Contexts). Photogravures entitled (in the order they appear) The Cat by Frank Eugene, New York [Wall Street], Telegraph Poles, New York [Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street], New York [Rooftops], New York [Washington Heights, New York], and New York [City Hall Park] by Paul Strand; Winter by Arthur Allen Lewis; and A Portrait by Francis Bruguière. Containing original articles entitled "From '291'-July-August Number, 1915" by Marius De Zayas and "Epitaph for Alfred Stieglitz" by Marsden Hartley. New York: Alfred Stieglitz, October 1916. Quarto (23 cm x 35 cm, approx. 9" x 12"), original gray wrappers. General edgewear to fragile wrappers with splitting to upper joint of spine. RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Red Sea and Gulf of Aden Pilot

      Washington: Published by the Hydrographic Office under the Authority of the Secretary of the Navy, Government Printing Office,, 1916. Comprising the Suez Canal, the Gulfs of Suez and Akaba, the Red Sea and Strait of Bab el Mandeb, the Gulf of Aden with Sokotra and adjacent Islands, and the Southeast Coast of Arabia to Ras al Hadd. Octavo. Original red-brown cloth, title gilt to spine and front board. Folding colour map frontispiece. Bookplate to front free endpaper. A little rubbed and spotted, spine marked and with minor damage at the head, corners slightly bumped, light toning, but a very good copy. First edition of this naval almanac, to be distinguished from the British title of the same name, first published in 1863, though deriving most of its information from the sixth edition (1909) of that publication. Uncommon: only one copy in British libraries (Oxford), though more prevalent in American institutions, and seldom encountered in commerce. Beyond the specifically maritime aspects, including coastal geography, these handbooks did provide basic background on local conditions, climate, items of trade and so forth. Of particular interest is their account of settlements unrecognisable today: Jeddah "is ½ mile square, and inclosed [sic] by a wall, with small towers at intervals, the angles toward the sea being commanded by two forts" (p. 311), whereas Aqaba "is a small Arab village, in an extensive date grove … Close to the village is a small square fort, garrisoned by Turkish soldiers" (p. 278).

        An illuminated address (visible image 390 x 260 mm) presented 'To H. Basford Esq. On behalf of the Presbyterian Church of Murray Bridge and Monarto', December 1916.

      - An attractive calligraphic testimonial to the outgoing Honorary Secretary, in blue ink on a two-tone blue background within a decorative gilt border, signed by nine senior members of the congregation. It is surmounted by a large ornamental scroll, a mass of wattle blossom and a large vignette illustration of a paddle steamer towing a heavily-laden barge on the River Murray. The copious amounts of dirty smoke belching forth are starkly realistic - an unexpected bonus on an otherwise routine production. The work is signed 'Niehuus & Lucy, Adelaide'; we are unsure when they commenced work together, but the partnership was dissolved four months after this commission was completed. Minimal foxing and light surface blemishes do not detract from this charming period piece, recently archivally mounted. Use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability.

      Chicago 1916 - A handmade illustrated book written in German of uncommon merit both in its cartoonish illustrations and verse. Indeed, the quality of the production begs the question why the author/artist did not attempt to have this published, although the German text, especially in 1916 America, might have not been helpful to such an undertaking. We can infer from his calling this the first and last edition that he did not hold hope or ambition for further dissemination.
