        El Dschihad. Zeitung für die muhammedanischen Kriegsgefangenen. Nr. 46. Turkotatarische Ausgabe.

      Berlin, 14. XI. 1916. - Folio (469 × 314 mm). 3, (1) pp. Promoting jihad: official policy. The diplomat, orientalist, and historian Max von Oppenheim (1860-1946) had published a memorandum as early as 1914 on "revolutionizing the Islamic territories of our enemies", i.e. trying to persuade religious leaders in the Muslim world to call for a Holy War against colonial powers such as Britain and France. Allied to this was a campaign to try and radicalize Muslim prisoners of war (a mosque was even erected in one camp, Wünsdorf - the first ever built in Germany) through printed matter, such as the camp newspaper "El Dschihad". Circulation began on 5 March 1915, with editions produced in Arabic, Russian, and - the largest print-run - Tartar (reaching 91 issues, the last published on 22 October 1918). Similar newspapers, under different names, were also issued in Georgian, Hindi, and Urdu. The only holdings outside Germany located by WorldCat are at the Hoover Institution (Arabic, Russian, and Tartar editions) and the Library of Congress (Russian edition). Not in COPAC. - Toned due to paper stock; two small wormholes at head; creased where previously folded. ZDB-ID 2079196-3. OCLC 643380726.

        The Luck of The Strong

      London, Eveleigh Nash. 1916, 1916. First Edition. 8vo. Publisher's original burgundy cloth, titled in black to spine and front board, sharp and clean with the a slight hint of darkening to the spine. 316pp + 100pp ads dated Spring 1916. Corners sharp. An excellent copy, with none of the usual bumping and scuffing. Internally slightly spotted with foxing to prelims. A scarce collection of Hodgson's 'straight from the horse's mouth' tales of seagoing courage and knavery. William Hope Hodgson was, for the duration of his short life, an amazing man. He ran away to sea, travelled the world, was one of the first men to photograph stalk lightning on the open ocean, ( he was an accomplished self taught photographer), taught self defense to the police force, fought for the rights of cabin boys, annoyed Houdini, founded his own school of fitness, wrote a large body of wierd and macabre fiction (much of which, unsurprisingly deals with the sea), tried very hard at everything he attempted and finally got killed in 1918 as part of an army of young men sent into battle by a Field Marshall whose contribution to history (other than to get them all killed) was to firmly believe that machine guns were overrated and that cavalry were to be the deciding factor on a battlefield which consisted of one giant, flooded pothole. Hurrah for the Empire.

        Zeppelin Nights A London Entertainment

      London, John Lane at The Bodley Head. 1916, 1916. FIRST EDITION. 8vo.; pp. 307+ 4 ads. Publisher's green decorated cloth, titles in yellow to front boards, gilt to spine, page edges untrimmed. Discreet Blackwell's label to pastedown, minor bumping to extremities, gilt dulled, otherwise a very clean and tight copy of a lesser known work dealing with Zeppelin paranoia in WWI London, and possibly one of the few places one could encounter a line like; "Her horror slowly upspreads from its nodus on the panting human breast where she squats and crouches." Arguably one of the earliest works of fiction to depict the possible social and psychological effects of an air raid. In addition to this the whole thing is as mad as a sack of ferrets; who christens their child 'Serapion', for crying out loud? Written during his time at the War Propoganda Bureau, shortly after publication of 'The Good Soldier' (1915), and just before Ford, at the age of 41, enlisted to serve with the Welsh Infantry on the Western Front, his experiences inspiring the acclaimed tetralogy 'Parade's End' (1924–1928).

        The Circus and Other Essays

      New York: Laurence J. Gomme, 1916. First edition, first issue. [viii], 79, [1] pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Publisher's half brown cloth and boards. Near fine, in orange pictorial dust-jacket with clown holding flaming circus hoop, jacket toned at spine panel, with some chipping to extremities of jacket. With obituary and other contemporary notices and poem pasted in to preliminaries and final leaf, and with manuscript poem, "Joyce Kilmer" by George Steele Seymour, on half-title. With Kilmer ALS from the Front with Mention of His War Poem "Rogue Bouquet" With a fine Autograph Letter, signed ("Joyce Kilmer"), to Miss Olson, written from the front. Headquarters Co., 165th Infantry A.E.F. France, n.d., but after Nov. 1917. 1-1/2 pages, tipped in after title-page. "It was kind of you to send me the book of tickets, and I am honored by thus becoming the guest of the Chicago Woman's Club ... I'm more homesick for [Chicago] than for any other city in America (you see, Larchmont Manor isn't a city) ... I think you will like my poem 'Rogue Bouquet.' I am a sergeant now, and never expect to go any higher. For, to get a commission I'd be obliged to go to school away from the Regiment for some months and when school was over I'd be sent - whether or not I had gained a commission - not back to this Regiment but to some strange outfit. And I'd rather be a sergeant in the 69th than an officer in any other Regiment ..." Kilmer was proud of his position in the "Fighting Sixty-ninth" (though by his time known as the 165th Infantry) and had requested permission to join its ranks. Kilmer was killed in action 30 July 1918 while scouting German machine-gun positions near the Ourcq River.

        Hausbau und dergleichen; mit 107 Zeichnungen und Photographien eigener Arbeiten.

      Berlin: Bruno Cassirer, 1916. 8vo. Original, worn, but solid hardcover boards. Spine very worn, but still solid. 146 pages. Inside clean.. 1. edition. Very scarce first printing of the most famous of Tessenow's writings, Hausbau und dergleichen ("House-Building and Such Things".). Tessenow (1876-1950) is considered together with Bruno Taut, Erich Mendelsohn, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe one of the most important personalities of German architecture."Tessenow's basic ideas were expressed in his text Hausbau und Dergleichen, a very didactic book in which he goes over the basic and permanent issues of architecture, as well as presenting his projected work until 1916. One of the basic ideas is not to subtract from architecture the dignity that it has gained over the years. This argument was shared by the Italian architects who, during the fifties and after, defended the primordial importance of tradition in architecture, of the effort accumulated during centuries of experience and the distrust versus the experimentalist rhetorics who seek the formal renewal of architecture. Another basic idea is that of identifying craftwork with traditional bourgeois values. This leads him to give importance to the aspiration for order, loyalty and rigour as fundamental bourgeois values. Order, simplicity and clarity are also related to repetition as instruments used by simple people. This makes him tend towards a sort of primitive functionalism, a minimalist architecture that seeks to produce a strong and rich impression by means of repetition. In his books and his work, Tessenow always defended a rigorous research task of the essential forms: "The simplicity to which we aspire can represent the greatest richness, just as the formal variety that we have at our disposal can reveal itself as very poor". (JOSEP MARIA MONTANER)

        Album with 20 Original Photographs, Titled on the Front Cover:] Manfred von Richthofen (1892-1918). Photo Album.

      1916 - Ca. 1916 - early 1918. Oblong Folio (ca. 24,5x32 cm), 7 card leaves. 20 mounted gelatin silver prints of various size, including two large aerial panoramas ca. 15,5x27,5 cm (6 ¼ x 10 ¾ in) or slightly smaller, and nine large photos ca. 12,5x16,5 cm (4 ¾ x 6 ½ in), the rest of images are ca. 9x13 cm (3 ½ x 5 ¼ in) and smaller. Three images numbered in negative. Handsome recent red full morocco album with gilt tooled decorative frame (with the Iron Cross) and title on the front board, and blind stamped decorative border on the rear border; white moiré endpapers. Two panoramas consist of two parts neatly stuck together, several images with minor silvering, but overall a near fine album. Rare collection of original photographs dedicated to the German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during World War I, including some of the last portraits of Manfred von Richthofen. The album opens with two views of Heidelberg and six aerial views of an airfield and a hangar constructed near a West European city, apparently one of the German airbases at the time, in Belgium or France. The photos include two large two-part panoramas and show the aircraft hangar, a small plane on the landing strip, surrounding infrastructure (service buildings, a railway leading to the hangar), and a small European city within medieval star like defensive walls. A series of six photos portray an inspection of a German air force base by the German High Command headed by Paul von Hindenburg, Germany's Chief of General Staff since 1916. There is also a picture of the German mechanics servicing a biplane fighter which is decorated with the iron crosses painted on the tail and wings (late insignia with a simple rectangular cross which was used in March/April - November 1918). The album closes with three important photograph portraits of several of Germany¿s top pilots gathered for the flying contest at the Adlershof aviation testing center outside Berlin in mid-January 1918. The photos depict exactly the same moment as the "Richthofen Film" (part 2) made by A.F.G. Fokker in 1918 (see the original video at Steven Spielberg Film and Video Archive online; copyright by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum). The first photo shows famous German ace Manfred von Richthofen or "Red Baron" (1892-1918; the top ace of the war, credited with 80 air combat victories) talking to Hans Klein (1891-1944), a German fighter ace credited with 22 aerial victories, awarded with the Iron Cross and the Pour le Merite order, or "Blue Max" in October 1917. The second photo portrays Adolf von Tutscheck (1891-1918), Commander of Jagdgeschwader 2 since February 1918, awarded with the Blue Max in August 1917. On the photo he is shown in a flight hat and wearing his Blue Max. The third photo is a group portrait of six of German fighter pilots (from left to right): Lt. Erich Löwenhardt (1897-1918; the third highest German flying ace with 54 victories, awarded with the Blue Max in May 1918); Oberlt. Bruno Loerzer (1891-1960; commander of Jasta 26, later of Jasta III, the third of the German famous "flying circuses," awarded with the Blue Max in February 1918); Manfred von Richthofen, Lt. Kurt Schwarzenberger (chief test pilot for the experimental fighter division of Idflieg); Hans Klein; Albert Mühlig-Hofmann (1886-1980, commander of the Field Equipment Service of Idflieg). Note that Hans Klein is shown wearing his Blue Max and still possesses his right index finger (shot off in combat on 19 February 1918). These portraits are one of the last depictions of Adolf von Tutscheck (killed in action on March 15, 1918), Manfred von Richthofen (killed in action on April 21, 1918), and Erich Löwenhardt (killed in action on August 10, 1918). Overall a very interesting historically significant photograph collection. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Von 1895 bis 1899 war er Professor an der Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe, von 1899 bis 1906 an der Stuttgarter Akademie. 1898 war er Gründunsmitglied des Stuttgarter Künstlerbundes, 1908 Mitbegründer des Künstlerbundes Schlesien.

        Entwurf für ein Bühnenbild.

      - 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.

      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. The lettering is always an issue 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 a small lifting of the cloth for 1cm by 3cm on the front if being picky and a dot mark to the rear boards but they are nice. Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy! Amazingly clean inside including the yellow pastedowns and photoplate. Minimal foxing. No restoration. A lovely book. Rare, Please see the large photographs. More photographs available on request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
