        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1916 - Original Hardback Wisden. Very Good.

      1916 - 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, [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Dorfkarneval ist aus" (so die Künstler-Beschriftung auf dem Keilrahmen verso). Öl auf Leinwand, 75 x 100 cm, monogrammiert unten rechts, nicht datiert (vermutlich 50er oder frühe 60er Jahre). - Schlichte Rohholzleiste.

      - Schnell (1916 Wuppertal - 1986 Berlin), hauptsächlich als Schriftsteller bekannt, gehörte zur Gruppe der Berliner "Malerpoeten" (u.a. G.B. Fuchs, Zeidler, Meckel, Mühlenhaupt). Das (im Vergleich zu Schnells anderen Bildern) ungewöhnlich großformatige Gemälde geht vermutlich auf Wuppertaler Kindheitseindrücke zurück, - ähnlich denen von Else Lasker-Schüler, eine Generation zuvor, in ihrem Schauspiel "Die Wupper".- Guter Zustand - Versandkonditionen vorbehalten.

        Eigenh. Brief m. U.

      o. O., 4. VII. 1916. - 4to. 4 pp. Hübscher und früher Brief an den Kunsthistoriker und -sammler Walter Cohen (1880-1942): „[ ]neulich besuchte ich Dr. Kaerbach in Rethel, dem es dort recht gut gefällt. Er meinte, dass sie vielleicht meine Ausstellung in München sehen würden. Nun ergab diese eine Auseinandersetzung über Preise mit dem Händler. Und ich möchte Ihnen gern über den Ankauf zweier Bilder von mir durch die Gesellschaft der Freunde der Kunst des XX. J., der ja durch Ihr Eintreten zu Stande kam, sagen dass es mir schon dem Händler gegenüber unmöglich war, die beiden Bilder für zusammen 600 Mark zu verkaufen; da ein Preis nicht ausgemacht war und sie mehrere Bilder zur Auswahl dort hatten, deren Einzelpreis Ihnen nicht mitgeteilt war (ein Versehen meiner Frau) so bitte ich doch den Ankauf eines Bildes für 600 M dagegen das zweite und zwar den Soldaten = als Ihrer Vereinigung von mir geschenkt zu betrachten. Sie werden es verstehen, dass ich der Öffentlichkeit gegenüber diese Auffassung vertreten sehen möchte. Von Nauen hörte ich vor etwa 14 Tagen das letzte Mal. Er schrieb mir aus dem Lazarett. Hoffentlich ist es mit ihm inzwischen schon besser geworden. Erinnern Sie sich noch unseres Zusammentreffens in der Galerie. Feldmann, Berlin, mitten in den Vorbereitungen zu dem Maskenfest. Ich hörte, Feldmann sei Soldat –. Er war erst spurlos verschwunden. Ich hätte Lust, dass auch einmal zu können. So für 6-8 Wochen an einen stillen See ohne Zeitung und ohne Kasernenlärm [ ]" - Vermerk von Cohen auf dem Brief Heckels in Bleistift an Herrn Geller wegen der Heckel-Bilder.

        Framewood Interiors

      New York, NY: Wm. Baumgarten, 1916. This edition was privately printed for the Sterling Postley family to commemorate the completion of their Long Island estate. The limitation is unstated but likely did not exceed 100, to judge by the lack of auction records for the sale of this book and the paucity of copies at major libraries. Arranged and printed at the Goerck Art Press, New York, NY. Full vellum binding. To the front board a gilt-stamped armorial device to the center and four corner ornaments in an Art Nouveau style, with a crisp gilt rule surround. Gilt-stamped spine with title and date. The rear board with a crisp gilt rule surround. To the left of the armorial device a faint residue mark as if from the imprint of the rim of a moist glass. The vellum cracked a bit along the top and bottom of the front gutter, a minor cosmetic issue and not affecting the integrity of the binding. Virtually unbumbed spine head and tail, and with fairly sharp corners. The binding is in very good condition. The text block is firmly bound in. 14.5 x 10.5 inches. T.E.G. Fore- and bottom edges deckled to a handsome effect. Moiré silk-satin pastedowns and FEPs. Unnumbered pages, including blank preliminaries, a title page, two pages of text, and multiple pages of plates. With 26 full-page archival B&W photo-plates, including the interior rooms of the estate as well as a porch and a loggia. There is some minor page waviness. An exceptionally clean copy. Very gently read. A Very Good copy. Also included are miscellaneous documents and photographs apparently relating to Framewood:a large photogrpah by J. G. Maugans, Plainfield, NJ, slipped in shows an oak-paneled room at Framewood. Framewood was the Oyster Bay, Long Island estate of the Postley family. "The interior furnishings were designed in the fall of 1915, and executed during the following winter in the work-shops of Wm. Baumgarten & Co. of New York. The house was completed and ready for occupancy in the spring of 1916.". First Edition. Vellum. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Privately Printed.

        Neue Jugend - Monatsschrift. Herausgeber Heinz Barger, Schriftleiter Wieland Herzfelde. Kompletter 1. Jahrgang, bestehend aus Heft 7 (Juni 1916) bis zur Doppel-Nr. 11/12 (Februar-März 1917), in 1 Band gebunden als Verlags-Sammelband.

      Berlin: Der Malik-Verlag 1916 - Seiten 123-248, Fadenheftung, Format 16 x 21,4 cm, hartgebundener Original-Pappband. * Vorgebunden ist diesem Sammelband ein Blatt "Zur Orientierung", das den Beginn des Erscheinens mit der Nummer 7 erklärt: "Da während des Krieges die Gründung von Zeitschriften ohne vorherige Konzession der Militärbehörden untersagt war, erschien die Zeitschrift `Neue Jugend` scheinbar als Fortsetzung einer bereits vor dem Kriege gegründeten Monatsschrift; sie beginnt daher im Juli 1916 statt mit der Nr. 1 und Seite 1 mit Nr. 7 und Seite 123. Aus ähnlichen Gründen zeichnete Wieland Herzfelde zunächst nicht als Herausgeber. - Als er nach Erscheinen des Oktoberheftes 1916 an die Front geschickt wurde, konnte erst nach mehreren Monaten wieder ein Heft, die Februar-März-Nummer 1917, herauskommen. Kurz darauf wurde das weitere Erscheinen der `Neue Jugend` ohne Angabe von Gründen für Kriegsdauer verboten. Sämtliche Hefte sind nur noch in einem Band zusammengebunden erhältlich, und zwar kartoniert und als Pappband.Die Zeitschrift wurde anonym als Wochenausgabe fortgesetzt. Im Mai und im Juni 1917 erschienen noch zwei Nummern, wurden jedoch sogleich unterdrückt. Diese beiden Nummern sind wegen ihres größeren Formats nicht mit der Monatsausgabe zusammengebunden, jedoch noch lieferbar." [Zitat Ende]. Das Inhaltsverzeichnis für den gesamten Jahrgang am Schluß, aber ohne Berücksichtigung der beiden Wochenausgaben; demnach nur für diesen Sammelband gedruckt, genau wie das vorgebundene Blatt "Zur Orientierung". Textbeiträge von Johannes R. Becher, Theodor Däubler, Kasimir Edschmid, Albert Ehrenstein, George Grosz, Wieland Herzfelde, Franz Held, José-Maria de Herédia, Richard Huelsenbeck, Else Lasker-Schüler, Georg Trakl, Walt Whitmann (Walt Whitman), Gustav Landauer, Hans Blüher, Samuel Friedlaender, Ernst Joel, Mynona, Johannes Reinelt. Ganzseitige Zeichnungen von George Grosz (8 x), Georges Seurat (1 x), Else Lasker-Schüler (4 x), Carlo Mense (1 x), Reproduktionen nach Gemälden von Marc Chagall (1 x), Heinrich Maria Davringhausen (3 x), James Ensor (1 x). Außerdem die Noten einer Komposition von Werner Richard Heymann mit Text von Rainer Maria Rilke. ++++++++++++ Erhaltung: Der Rücken des leicht gebunden Pappbands fehlt komplett. Die Deckel sind an den Rändern leicht gebräunt. Innen ist alles sauber und fleckenlos. Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Exemplar, nur ein neuer Rücken sollte angesetzt werden. Das darf der Erwerber gemäß dem eigenen Geschmack gestalten. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Diverse Beilagen. - 8 Tonbandkassetten mit Teilen des Interviews beiliegend. - Ferner zwei Original-Papierabzüge Persönlichkeitsfotos von Muche (1970). - U. a.

Nähres bitte auf Anfrage. - Georg Muche wird am 8. Mai 1895 in Querfurt in Sachsen geboren. Im Jahr 1913 beginnt Muche sein Studium der Malerei an der "Schule für Malerei und Grafik von Paul Weinhold und Felix Eisengräber, vorm. A. Azbé" in München. Seine Prüfung für die "Königlich Bayerische Akademie der bildenden Künste in München" besteht er nicht und will nach Paris gehen, wozu Georg Muche auf Grund des Kriegsausbruchs nicht kommt. Stattdessen begibt sich Muche nach Berlin, wo er durch Herwarth Walden in den Kreis der expressionistischen Künstler eingeführt wird. Dort arbeitet er für ihn als Ausstellungsassistent. Anfang 1916 findet die 37. Ausstellung des "Sturm" unter dem Titel "Max Ernst - Georg Muche" statt, in der er 22 Bilder ausstellt. Folgend finden Ausstellungen von "Paul Klee - Georg Muche" mit 30 Arbeiten des Künstlers sowie im Jahr 1918 "Alexander Archipenko - Georg Muche" statt. Inzwischen ist der Künstler als Lehrer für Malerei an der Kunstschule des "Sturm" tätig. Im Jahr 1920 kündigt Georg Muche seinen Vertrag mit Walden, um für seine nun beginnende Arbeit am Bauhaus unabhängig zu sein. 1927 verlässt er das Bauhaus wieder, um für drei Jahre als Lehrer an der ein Jahr zuvor gegründeten privaten Kunstschule von Johannes Itten zu arbeiten. Bis zum Jahr 1938 unterrichtet er an der Schule "Kunst und Werk" in Berlin. Darüber hinaus beschäftigt sich Georg Muche intensiv mit Freskomalerei, vertieft dieses Interesse während einer Studienreise nach Italien, verfasst ein Buch "Buon Fresco - Briefe aus Italien über Handwerk und Stil der echten Freskomalerei" und stellt in der Berliner Galerie von der Heyde seine "Tafelfresken" aus. 1938 bis 1958 leitet Georg Muche die Meisterklasse für Textilkunst an der Textilingenieurschule in Krefeld. Seine Beschäftigung mit der Freskomalerei mündet in der Ausgestaltung eines 6 x 6 Meter großen Raumes mit Fresken, der jedoch kurz darauf im Jahr 1942 durch Bomben zerstört wird. 1960 siedelt er nach Lindau am Bodensee über, dort arbeitet Muche als freier Maler und Grafiker. In den 70er-Jahren arbeitet er an seinem Zeichnungen und Gemälde umfassenden Zyklus "Tafeln der Schuld". Im Jahr 1980 findet eine große Retrospektive "Georg Muche - Das künstlerische Werk 1912 bis 1927" im Bauhaus-Archiv in Berlin statt. Der Künstler verstirbt am 26. März 1987 in Lindau. Sprache: Deutsch Enthält Vieles zu Leben und Werk Muches, wie Ausbildung, die Zeit in München, Novembergruppe, Bauhaus, Itten-Kunstschule.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

      New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind lettered front cover. Neat book label of "Alice B. Egan, Medford, Oregon". Spine slightly rolled, a couple of small pale marks on front cover, a few leaves very slightly creased at head. Still a fine bright 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. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, first published on 29 December 1916. He sent from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April.

        7(20) ?????? 1916. [Through Seas and Oceans to France. The Landing of Russian Troops in Marseilles on 7 (20) April 1916].

      Parizh E.M.B.R 1916 - Small oblong folio (19.2 x 30 cm). Title, [2], 1 map, 95 ll. with photogravures, all with original tissue guards. Publisher's maroon morocco with gilt lettering to upper cover. With a programme and dinner menu for the reception of 1st Special Infantry Brigade on 8-21 November at Mailly-le-Camp loosely inserted; programme lacks tipped-in illustration. This rare album presents a photographic account of a journey of the Special Infantry Brigade of the Russian Imperial Army to France in 1916. In the outbreak of the World War I the French requested in 1915 that the Russian troops were sent to fight alongside their own army on the Western Front. While the Russian High Command showed little enthusiasm for this proposal, Tsar Nicholas II supported it. In August same year the Russian chief of staff General Alexeyev agreed to fulfil the request, as long as the Russian troops remained under the command of Russian officers and were transported to the destination by the French Navy. The 1st Russian Special Brigade was formed in January 1916 under the command of General Nikolay Lokhvitsky. Totalling 8,942 men, it left Moscow on February 3, 1916 travelling by train to the Russian Far East. From there their journey continued on French ships through Saigon, Singapore, Colombo, Aden and Suez until they finally arrived in Marseille on April 16 of the same year. Rare: no copies found on the market; not in the collections of the Russian National or State Libraries; WorldCat locates only two copies &#150; in Stanford University library and French National Library.

        Mountain Interval

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1916 First edition, first state, with line 8 in duplicate on page 88 and "Come" for "Gone" on page 93 line 16. Publisher's dark blue cloth, lettered and ruled in gilt. Near fine, with a hint of rubbing to the spine ends, a few faint spots to the endpapers, else bright and fresh. A fantastic copy. Crane A4. Mountain Interval is Frost's third published collection of poetry, and is the first appearance of "The Road Not Taken." It also includes the poems "Christmas Trees," "In the Home Stretch," "Birches," "Snow," and "The Bonfire," among others. Throughout the volume, Frost grapples with how the choices of the past ultimately shape the future. "The Road Not Taken," the first and most famous poem of the collection, sets up this paradigm with the narrator's decision of which direction to take after reaching a fork in the road - a metaphor for decisions made along the road of life. While he had previously established his talent for verse with his first two poetry collections, Mountain Interval solidified Frost's status as a master poet.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Writings -- Ten (10) volume Manuscript Edition; with draft manuscript of The Mountains of California

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Co., 1916. Hardcover. Near Fine. One of 750 copies, with a page of manuscript tipped into Vol. I. Illustrated with 69 black and white photogravures by Charles S. Olcott and Herbert W. Gleason, eight color photogravures, many halftones. 10 vols. 8vo. The Manuscript Edition. The fragment here is rather zen: "The mountain pine towering with outstretched arms upon the rocky buttresses of the alps the lowliests and most hidden tenants -- of the dells they seek and find them all bending there in exercise this way and that stimulating their growth beautifying their forms" This is a draft version of the windstorm scene in Chapter 10 of The Mountains of California (1894), his first book. All 10 volumes bound in the original 3/4 burgandy leather by the Riverside Press. The spines have faded to a uniform, absolutely beautiful, light brown which looks great with the gilt lettering, better than the burgundy frankly. Top edges all gilt, marbelled endpapers, no markings of any kind in the volumes, no foxing, no bookplates, no signatures. Volume one has a small scuff to the leather (maybe 1/3 of an inch) on the top board (not the spine), otherwise the leather is free from notable wear. All boards tight, no splits to the leather, all corners nice and sharp. This set has been very well cared-for. Altogether lovely.

        Les "Bois" du "Monde illustré".

      - P., Au "Monde illustré", 13 quai Voltaire et Jules Meynial, 30, boulevard Haussmann, 1916, in-folio, en ff., chemise à rabat de l'éd. (CN10) "La collection des gravures sur bois parues dans le Monde illustré, le grand hebdomadaire français, depuis l'année 1857, constitue le document le plus important de la gravure au XIXème siècle. L'Administration en fait exécuter par le maître graveur SCHMIED un tirage unique à 160 ex. sur Japon. Il comprendra 800 des plus belles planches de Doré, Vierge, Lepère, Morin, Chifflart. Cet ouvrage formera un ensemble de vingt albums qui paraîtront à raison de cinq par années dès fin Mai 1917" (texte de l'éditeur). "Édition établie par l'éditeur Jules Meynial et le graveur F.L. Schmied. Épreuves tirées sur les bois originaux par F.L. Schmied. Bons à tirer donnés par A. Lepère". Le volume présenté ici contient deux notices - sur Doré et Lepère - et 84 gravures hors-texte de : CHIFFLART (François) 11, DORÉ (Gustave) 16, LEPERE (Auguste) 30, MORIN (Edmond) 19 et VIERGE (Daniel) 8. Cet ensemble nous paraît particulièrement intéressant "car il s'agit ici du Schmied graveur et non du Schmied créateur de livres, avec point d'interrogation si l'on en croit le livre de Cichocka, Gustave Miklos : un grand oeuvre caché (Fata libelli, 2013) dont nous citons le passage suivant : "Rappelons que F.-L. Schmied (qui a perdu un oeil, suite à une blessure, aux premiers jours de la Grande Guerre) est alors un excellent graveur quoique très académique, formé par des maîtres de la gravure du XIXème siècle, ayant Auguste Lepère pour idéal. Après de premières années de misère à Paris, au début du siècle, il comprend vite que l'activité du graveur, malgré un travail assidu, ne peut lui assurer son gagne-pain, surtout à l'époque où pointe, dans la presse et l'édition, la concurrence de la photogravure. Ensuite, dans l'immédiat après-guerre, Schmied, fort du succès remporté, dès sa sortie, par le Livre de la jungle - gravé par ses soins - décide de se lancer dans l'édition de luxe de ses propres livres illustrés. Pour cela, il a cherché l'homme de la situation et l'a trouvé en Gustave Miklos. Ainsi il va s'assurer la collaboration secrète de Miklos - attestée par un cahier des "Travaux pour François." (cf. "Le Pot aux roses") retrouvé (op. cit. p. 50).

        Autograph letter signed ("Marguerite Zelle McLeod").

      [Paris], 20. VIII. 1916. - 8vo. 8 pp. on 4 ff. (conjoined leaves). With a contemporary photograph of her in costume. To "Monsieur Petitpied". A wartime letter by Mata Hari in which she tells him about her life, her friends, and about Paris: "Me voilà déjà presque deux mois en voyage et il est vrai je ne vous ai pas encore donné de mes nouvelles. C'était un peu de votre faute parceque un jour que j'étais venue du consulat pour ces papiers inévitables, vous m'aviez reçu un peu brusquement. Peut-être étiez vous énervé ; ou ennuyé, soit - j'ai cru qu'il serait plus sage de ma part de ne pas venir inutilement vous déranger et voilà la raison pour laquelle je suis partie sans vous dire adieu. Tant mieux si je me suis trompée et si vous le désirez je serai toujours heureuse de vous écrire de temps en temps. Me voilà à Paris et comme vous voyez descendue au Gd. Hôtel. Ce n'est pas ce qu'il y a de mieux mais c'est central et j'ai trop d'essayages à faire pour ce que je habiterais plus loin. J'ai le grand bonheur jusque ici d'avoir mes amis en vie malgré qu'ils sont au front depuis le premier jour de la guerre et en première ligne. Quand ils sont en congé je leur suis tout ce que je puisse être, comme femme, et quand ils n'y sont pas, je suis la "marraine". D'abord je me suis amusée des marraines parceque il y a des ridicules, mais au fond il y a quelquechose de bien gentil, de bien Français, et voilà, que moi aussi je le suis devenue. [ ] L'atmosphère de Paris est toujours Parisienne, il y a l'imprévu et on a le sourire, sans savoir pourquoi. On a envie d'être gracieuse, aimable, parceque on l'est envers vous. Je pense sérieusement à revenir vivre ici, mais je n'ose en parler encore au Baron v d C. [Cappelen, one of her lovers] Je sais que je lui ferai beaucoup de chagrin et alors j'attends". - Her border-crossing and powerful connections would see her executed as a spy the following year. - On Grand Hotel stationery; light toning; together with a period photograph of her in costume.

        [Photographs]: Aerial Balloon Photographs -- 14th Photo Section

      France. 1916-1918. A collection of 357 gelatin silver print photographs measuring 7" x 9.5", most with captions in the margins. Curled edges, a very few with small tears, overall very good or better. An archive of United States Army aerial photographs documenting the Western Front during World War I by the 14th Photo Section, 1st Army. The photographs depict over 24 French and Belgium cities many of which were located along the border of Imperial Germany including Verdun, the River Meuse, St. Mihiel, and Metz. The photos of the latter show an aerial view of the famous Saint-Stephen Cathedral in the center of the city. Seen throughout the photos are the landscape of the Western Front, the Castle in Sedan, rivers, villages, and vast areas of countryside which include the ruins of towns including Nantillois, which saw a significant amount of action. One photo shows a long line of tents which belong to a G.R.S. camp (Graves Registration Service) in Romagne. The U.S. began their reconnaissance towards the end of the war using a combination of airplane and balloons reconnaissance. Balloon were typically tethered above the battlefield and manned with several observers who could communicate with the ground with signals or through telegraphy. It was dangerous work with the balloon crew at risk from enemy airplanes and incendiary shells. Many of the photography here are marked in the upper left corner of the print "14th Photo Section," as well as along the bottom edge with the number, location, and (we assume) coordinates of the balloon of the images. With the increasing sophistication of airplane photography, balloon reconnaissance was phased out altogether following the war. An extensive accumulation of images documenting the end of aerial balloon photography. .

        WWI Photo Archive - East Kent Regiment in Egypt - RARE Embroidered Silk "Buffs" Banner

      Egypt, 1916. Egypt, 1915-1919. Archive of Private Ernest Jarrett with the East Kent Regiment, Cairo and Alexandria comprising 202 photographic views, 1 embroidered silk panel commemorating the regiment's service in Egypt (46 x 46 cm), 2 entertainment programmes from Cairo, and a manuscript letter sent to him 12 May 1919. Views include 113 original snapshot photographs (mostly mounted into a small 8vo. album 11 x 13 cm and a small 8vo. journal 10 x 15 cm), 38 photographic postcards, 28 printed photographic views, and 23 professional portrait postcards of several fellow service men. The lot contained in an elegant wooden box with brass handle and studded perimeter, measuring 26 x 21 x 10 cm. Some fading to photographs in the journal, otherwise the lot in Very Good condition, crisp and fascinating images. The Buffs, officially the East Kent Regiment, participating in the Middle Eastern theatre of World War I, and encountering indigenous Egyptian custom, most for the first and only time, is well illustrated in this personal archive of photograph views. Most uncommon for this type of war archive, we find several studio portraits of the regiment's members who fought and worked alongside one another. Belonging to Ernest Jarrett of Sittingbourne in East Kent, this young lad was serving with the East Kent Regiment (The Buffs) No. 3246, and later the Royal Field Artillery Regiment No. 911593, then the Royal West Kent Regiment No. 6083. Highlights from the archive include: A small album of 24 original snapshot photographs centering mainly on the Egyptian ways of life, including women in various burquas, street merchants, rail and river transport, city streets and mosques, also with two views of war destruction, a photograph of the Cairo Kasr-el-Nil Bridge, and an excavation near the Sphinx. A spectacular collection of 23 studio portrait postcard photographs of fellow servicemen in the Buffs regiment, some of whom are merely boys, each of whom are named in manuscript caption to verso. In and of itself a pleasing mini archive which serves to remember some of the gallant soldiers and officers who may or may not have survived the war, and also to illustrate the various divisions and ranks by way of their uniforms. Several are dated. Thirteen (13) original sepia photographs of the Buffs regiment in their routine, including aviation exercises, aerial views over Egypt, interaction with the locals, land drills, camp and and the like. Seventy-three (73) small silver print photographs which thoroughly illustrate military camp life in Egypt, dispersed with occasional city views, local people, camels, and the like, mounted with incisions into a small notebook. A superb set of 25 collotype and sepia postcards, showing ancient pyramids, nostalgic Nile scenes, majestic mosques, colonial monuments, and the like, many being landscape views, printed in Cairo nearly 100 years ago now and beautifully preserved. One of these is postally used, inspected and stamped at the British Army Field Post Office 24 April 1916. Two band programmes for performances held at the Ezbekieh Gardens in Cairo, 17 June 1917 and 31 March 1918, respectively. [The YMCA rented three acres of Ezbekieh Gardens to provide roller skating, movies, swimming, food, a library of 300 books and a post office. Religious services and lectures were also provided. Thousands of men flocked there each night after work.] Scarce embroidered WWI commemorative sky blue silk tableau specific to the Buff's service in Egypt, featuring the regiment's dragon insignia and the year 1916, dentelle border. In original condition, one small age-toning spot, otherwise beautifully preserved, clean and bright. In the beginning of 1917 the Royal East Kent Mounted Rifles (REKMR), with the West Kent Yeomanry, was formed into the 10th (Yeomanry) Battalion, The Buffs (East Kent Regiment). The Buffs unit became part of the 74th (Yeomanry) Division on 21 March 1917. The new Buffs battalion left Sollum Egypt on 23 March 1917 travelling by sea to Alexandria where it disembarked for Sidi Bishr. Early in April 1917, the Regiment left Egypt for Palestine, marching via Kantara, Sheik Zawieh, and Belah to the vicinity of Gaza. The 74th (Yeomanry) Division was placed in Reserve for the Second Battle of Gaza. From April 1917 to October 1917, the Battalion had a strenuous time with little fighting, but much digging and even greater discomfort. Wadi Ghuzzi, Wadi Nukabir, Wadi Levi, Tel-el-Fara and Khan Yunis are names which the Yeoman of 1917 will never forget. They will always bring back memories of intense heat by day, extreme cold by night, shortage of clean water, and a superabundance of dust, flies and every form of torment! At the end of October 1917 the Battalion took part in the Battle of Beersheba, after which it was withdrawn to Karem for rest and re-equipment. Then began the job of pushing "Jonny Turk" northward through the Plain of Sharon, Esdud, Hamsukerieh, Kutrah, Latron and Beit Nuba. On 7 December 1917 the Battalion reached Kubeibeh and took part in the Battle of Jerusalem which was finally captured on 9 December 1917. Northwards again towards Beit Manana and onto Ramillah after which the Battalion was withdrawn to Moiya Wadi near Bethlehem where it spent Christmas 1917.. Very Good.

        Mufti. A Paper devoted to Civilian Interests. Vol. I, No. 1-7 [all published]

      Basildon: James Sellar,, 1916. Quarto (298 × 213 mm). 7 four-page issues, accompanied by a 6-page manuscript publication history in a precise and attractive hand, written in 1942 by the main contributor. Housed in black cloth folding case in black quarter leather drop-back box, title gilt to spine. Somewhat browned, some edge-splits, one issue a little cockled, but overall very good. First and only editions. The editor's set of a complete run of this short-lived fortnightly dedicated to conscientious objection, and pacifist opposition to conscription, the editor's set. Extremely uncommon: Copac has BL and perhaps Cambridge; OCLC adds Harvard, Houghton Library and Bibliothèque de documentation internationale contemporaine, Nanterre. An extraordinarily eccentric collection of anti-militarist opinion, its publication stimulated by the inception of conscription. More eccentric still is the tale of its founding, writing, printing and publication, which is fully told in the accompanying history, a unique document giving an insight into the hidden world of "objectors to military service". James Kirkby, of whom we have found no other trace, begins by explaining that, "From April 1914 to April 1916 I was a tenant on sufferance at Islington Turkish Baths … The Baths had been unfortunate, the subject of legal proceedings. They were kept open by a firm of solicitors connected with the proceedings, who had placed in them as resident temporary manager one of their clerks, a bearded Welshman ignorant of Welsh, but full of projects for the remodelling of society on a basis of Tolstoyan anarchism. His name was James Evans." Evans allows a friend of Kirkby's, Stanley Carlyle Potter ?- "who dealt in secondhand books and astrology" ?- to occupy the rooms not taken up by a small shop which "sold babies' caps and special food for vegetarians," which is run by two young ladies one of whom, "the comelier," was "informally attached to James Evans, who had conscientious objections to marriage." Kirkby himself occupied the "skylighted Cooling Room … We lay on Divans and regarded the large and dark oil-paintings all around us." Among the other refugees are three brothers, Jim, Fred and Harry Sellar, who had fled conscription in New Zealand under the Defence Acts of 1912, and their father who set up a small-holding at Basildon in Essex. Fred had "business acumen, some better education, and skill as an amateur printer," and suggests that Kirkby writes something that he and Jim can sell. "I was at the time destitute, living on credit on the little shop; arrangements were soon afterwards made for a small subscription to keep me going." The other major contributor, with a column on the back page, was the Quaker Samuel Veale Bracher, who had set up the Tolstoyan Whiteway Colony in Gloucestershire in 1898. All of them "worked at the composing stick and helped at the working of the Albion press that stood in the middle of the boys' room." They soon hit trouble with Evans, who believed that the founding of Mufti on his premises meant that "it would advertise his nucleus of a brotherhood of man and the goods in the little shop." They are forced to carry the press down to the cellar which was "dreadfully cold even when an oil-stove was kept burning … Our labours were unremitting: we had not enough type to set up all the paper; after printing one side we had to distribute a lot of type before we could complete the setting-up of the other." Finally, at a meeting, "at the Express Dairy Shop at the top of Essex Street, Strand of Bracher, Fred, and myself, on the 15th of May 1916, Mufti was declared dead." By way of summing up Kirkby tells what became of the members of this odd ménage: Evans dead, gored while milking a goat; Jim Sellar married to one of the two "young ladies" from the shop; Harry Sellar "got religion"; and Fred owned a printing business in Middlesex. And, in the midst of another global conflict, Kirby reflects on his present attitude to the principles that motivated Mufti's progenitors: "Though, not being a mystic pacifist like Evans nor a skilful evader-of-issues like Bracher, I am now convinced that the German power must be overthrown by force if life on this planet is to be tolerable … If the Germans had been a nation of Tolstoyans, nothing but misery could have resulted from the Versailles Treaty. They were far from that; and the victorious Powers were such fatheads that they neither helped Germany on to her feet nor firmly held her down." He concludes: "Mufti was not perfect in its wisdom. It was perfect in its punctuation - no other paper then could or now can say that of itself. The French War Museum wrote twice to Jim Sellar to know if there was any more of it. I hope Mufti did nothing to weaken the fibre of France to render easy Hitler's triumph there." An entrée into an unfamiliar British sub-culture of the Great War.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED BY STAGE ACTRESS HELEN TRUMAN WYNKOOP, MENTIONING THE EVENING PRESIDENT LINCOLN WAS ASSASSINATED

      Los Angeles, 1916. [2]pp., on a folded sheet. With photograph of the author. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling. Photograph mounted on cardboard; typed label at bottom of image. Very good. [2]pp., on a folded sheet. Letter written by stage actress Helen Truman, later Mrs. J.T. Wynkoop, who was among the actors on stage at Ford's Theater the evening that President Lincoln was assassinated. Wynkoop writes following an article published about her in the L.A. TIMES, which discussed her life and that evening, and the fact that she was still alive so many years later. She writes, to Mr. A.I. Mudd: "Dear Sir, Yours of June 12 enclosing program of Apl. 14th 1865 received, and thank you very much for sending me one: I did keep several of them, at that time, but they were destroyed when I lost all my papers and wrdrobes in the fire at the Halliday Street Theatre in Baltimore some years later. But one which I had in New York which I gave to Col. T. Alston Brown, when he was writing his "History of the American Stage." I enclose a photo of myself taken about three years ago. When I was first on the stage I appeared under the name of Helen Truman, but as I grew more prominent I took my own of Helen Coleman. I knew that several men of that company that night claimed at times to be the only survivors, and I knew them all personally, and I knew they did not mean it. But when I read an article in the "Times" here that Jenny Gourly thought she was the only survivor, I thought I had better say I was still alive and the "Los Angeles Times" sent reporters to interview me: and printed an article which I am sending you by this mail. If there is any further information you may desire to know, I will gladly answer any questions regarding that time."
