        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.

        Photo Album - WWI - Egypt Photo Journal

      Egypt, 1916. Cairo, Alexandria, Jerusalem, 1916-1919. Photograph album of scenes compiled by a unidentified man while serving in Egypt with Royal Flying Corps during the First World War, features 150 thematically presented photographs. A few images are from Palestine. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 5.5 x 5 cm, and the largest 10.5 x 8 cm. Includes silver print gelatin, albumen and carbon print photographs mounted in a writing journal made by Eyre & Spottiswoode in London. In addition, there are some 58 photograph illustrating the officer's home life and RFC colleagues in England. 8vo. soft maroon cloth boards, original endpapers, volume measures 17.5 x 22 cm. Boards bowed, wearing to extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a captivating collection of images from Egypt one hundred years ago. These images suggest that the compiler of this album associated with the Number 14 Squadron, which assisted Lawrence of Arabia in the Arab Revolt (1916-1918). "Indigenous life in the Near East" could very well be the title of this visual chronicle, which centers largely on Arabic tradition, customary gender roles, and the mysteriously veiled women, skilfully captured in arresting images. Seemingly unfettered by their abaya or the niqab unique to Egypt, Arab women are photographed fetching water from the Nile and carrying it in large terracotta pots, others are cautiously peering at the photographer through the small window of their garment. Especially rare however, are the images of European women donning forms of the so-called burqua in a fashionable manner, with jewellery, lace embellishments and classic heels. [In the early 20th century, the niqab was not a practice confined to Muslims. The niqab was worn by both Muslim and Christian elite women, an urban phenomenon which originated in Istanbul and was part of the harem tradition. At the time, wearing a face veil, or al-habara, was described as "a national Egyptian dress for upper-class women". Not long after these photographs were taken, however, in 1919 during Egyptian nationalist movement, upper-class women, both Muslim and Coptic Christian, protested the burqua, some walking in the city without the cover.] The men are generally photographed employing their trade, while some teach their sons the same, as with the young shepherd boy assisting his father near the pyramids. Most interesting is a man pressing garments by foot with a hot iron, ploughing crops with an ox-driven wood sledge, and other field work. Great use is made of various forms of carts, from selling tea or snacks, to general travel. Camels also prove most efficient for conveyance, as caravans cross the desert, the men leading afoot, and others are heavily laden with building materials. We also find pastoralist nomads, Bedouins fabricating a tent, and Berbers leading camel. Fascinating structures feature a beehive-like dome made of stones and mud, and a round dwelling made of vertical sticks. The album also yields firsthand snapshot images of World War I aircraft, including the popular Maurice Farman MF.11 Shorthorn, reconnaissance and light bomber used in the early part of the war. A simple wooden structure was erected for the aviation mechanics here either constructing or repairing the frame of a small aeroplane. Other men inspect crash sites of fallen aircraft, all of which would have certainly been disheartening. Also pertaining to military duty, men are seen crossing vast desert regions with select supplies and limited sustenance. Complete with some glimpses of ancient Egyptian civilization and the all important Nile, an early photograph of the sphinx of Memphis is featured. Having been discovered less than five years earlier, its foundation remains unaltered as it lays in its original state after excavation. [Also referred to as the Alabaster Sphinx of Memphis, and the Calcite Sphinx was discovered in 1912 when an affiliate from the British School in Egypt spotted a uniquely carved object jutting out of a sand hill.] A basalt statue and a large stele stand unprotected in open areas. Also included are views of the Great Sphinx and Pyramid of Giza, as well as a small village scantily covered by palms. Lovely photographs provide uncommon views of the tomb and mosque of Sultan Kait Bey, Mameluke sultan of Egypt, built in 1474 and situated in northeast Cairo. Colonial monuments include the statue of Ferdinand de Lesseps which was erected at the entrance of the Suez Canal on 17 November 1899, and the Kobri el Gezira Bridge with its two large lion statues, the bridge having been built in 1872, and later demolished in 1931. The Royal Flying Corps (RFC) was one of the main squadrons operating in Egypt during WWI. They were based at a number of locations around the Suez Canal from 1915, keeping an eye on the Turks in Palestine and tribes in the Western Desert. Towards the end of 1916 their work involved assisting T.E. Lawrence ?'Lawrence of Arabia?'. The RFC had only been formed in April 1912 as the British military began to recognise the potential for aircraft as observation platforms. It was in this role that the RFC went to war in 1914 to undertake reconnaissance and artillery observation. The massive expansion of the British Army in late 1914 was reflected in an expansion of the Royal Flying Corps. Because of the shortage of both aeroplanes and trained pilots, new squadrons were formed as cadres of semi-trained pilots around a nucleus of pilots from RFC training squadrons. During WWI, the British saw an urgent requirement, primarily for pilots, and set up an extensive training system in Egypt. Training facilities were established in Ismailia, Aboukir, Abu Sueir, El Ferdan, and El Rimal. Initially, its recruits were from Britain, but as Britain's home training facilities began keeping pace with demand, the Egyptian schools took in local cadets, as well as some from South Africa. Although the output was mainly pilots, the No.3 School of Military Aviation No3, which had opened in November, 1916 at Aboukir, also initiated a school of gunnery. On 3 February 1915, Number 14 Squadron RFC was formed, and by autumn, when air forces were needed in the Middle East theatre of the First World War, it was deployed to Egypt. By mid-1916 the Squadron was operating in support of the Army advance across the Sinai. In late October 1916, "C" Flight was deployed to the Hejaz region of western Arabia in support of Colonel Lawrence and fighters of the Arab Revolt. Conditions and terrain were harsher in the Hejaz even than the Western Desert had been, nevertheless, in six months of operations, the Flight was able to provide valuable reconnaissance for Lawrence as well as carrying out bombing attacks on Turkish facilities in the Hejaz. The Squadron continued to support the Army advance through Palestine and onwards towards Damascus up until the Turkish Armistice which was signed at the end of October 1918, whence they returned to the UK. In 1919, during the rapid reduction of the RFC, the Squadron was disbanded, at least for a short time, until the newly-formed Air Force Board created a reduced-size RAF, keeping certain squadron numbers in recognition of distinguished wartime service. In 1914 as a result of the declaration of war with the Ottoman Empire, of which Egypt was nominally a part, Britain declared a Protectorate over Egypt and deposed the Khedive, replacing him with a family member, Fuad, who was made Sultan of Egypt by the British. A group known as the Wafd Delegation attended the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 to demand Egypt's independence. Included in the group was political leader, Saad Zaghlul, who would later become Prime Minister. In the wake of the British-ordered exile of revolutionary leader Saad Zaghlul, and other members of the Wafd Party, to the island of Malta, a tremendous nation-wide uprising occurred in Egypt in March and April 1919, known as the Egyptian Revolution of 1919, to protest British occupation of Egypt and Sudan. Riots were carried out by Egyptians and Sudanese from different walks of life, Much to the surprise of the British authorities, Egyptian women also demonstrated, led by Huda Sha?'rawi (1879-1947), who would become the leading feminist voice in Egypt in the first half of the twentieth century.. Very Good.

        ALS from Jack London's widow Charmian London (dated on the one month anniversary of Jack London's death)

      1916, Book Condition: Very Good PlusAutograph letter signed in black ink on card stock, 7 x 11 cm, dated Dec. 22, 1916. Written recto and verso entirely in Charmian London's hand, together with the note's original mailing envelope, also addressed by Charmian. The envelope is neatly opened at the top, retains the flap, and has only minor soiling and wear. The enclosed card has minor soil and a faint crease to the upper right corner. Sent from Glen Ellen, CA in reply to a letter of condolence she received after her husband's death from Captain Samuel W. Noyes of Texas. The letter opens "Dear People: -", Charmian London then expresses her "heart's best thanks" for their "letter of the 7th" and states near the end "It's a bad thing / Jack was badly poisoned some way." (London's Death Certificate names uraemia following renal colic - ie. kidney failure - as the cause of his death. The Cambridge Guide to English Literature [1996] states '. ..he was an unhappy man who could not reconcile his own success with the things he had seen and endured. He died at the age of 40, perhaps by sucide.'). Thus an unpublished letter from Charmian London written on the one month anniversary of her husband's death, speaking openly to his being "poisoned". Of note is that Jack and Charmian London Correspondence and Papers, of the Utah State University Special Collections and Archives Manuscript Collection, also hold correspondence with Noyes, S.W. dated 1915 July 1, in box 8, folder 5 of their collections.

        Die Grundlage der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie.

      . Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1916. 8vo (23.2 x 15.8 cm). 64 pp. Contemporary quarter crimson calf over marbled boards. Gilt title on the spine. Original printed wrappers bound in.l The first description of Einstein's "general theory of relativity"and the first dealing with gravity, not to be confused with his 1905 introduction of the more limited "special relativity". This is the official "Sonderdruck" (offprint) from the "Annalen der Physik", Band 49, printed by Metzger & Wittig in Leipzig, with their number 314 on the title page verso (i.e. the true first edition with the pages numbered [1]-64). It includes a preface and an index that are not present in the Annalen-version. According to Weil, "This separate edition is printed on good, strong paper, the wrappers are of strong material too (163 x 243 mm) and it is described now as "t h e o r i g i n a l e d i t i o n" of this classic paper. ... There are several anastatic reprints of it". The rear wrapper lists seven other Barth publications, nearly all on physics and written by Wien, Planck, and Wiener, ending with Wiener, 1909, and Ziehen, 1916. There is also a little known later (1919) reprint, not listed in Weil, which is also dated "1916". However, in that edition the rear wrapper publication list ends with Lorentz (1919), and Wien (1919)! A clean copy, very slightly trimmed, otherwise unaltered. It is rare to see a copy with the contents and wrappers in such a good state. Horblit, 26c; Weil, 80a; PMM, 408..

        Studies Based on the Colours and Magnitudes in Stellar Clusters

      Washington DC: Carnegie Institution, , 1916. First Paper: The General Problem of Clusters. Second Paper: Thirteen Hundred Stars in the Hercules Cluster (Messier 13). Third Paper: A Catalogue of 311 Stars in Messier 67. Contributions from the Mount Wilson Solar Observatory Nos. 115, 116, and 177. Octavo. Original light greenish-blue wrappers printed in black. Charts and diagrams throughout. Light dampstain to edge of upper wrapper, wrappers a little rubbed at the edges with a couple of short splits to the upper wrapper, contents faintly toned in the margins. An excellent copy. First separate edition. The first three papers in Harlow Shapley's monumental, multi-part analysis of globular clusters of stars, from which he estimated the size and shape of the Milky Way galaxy. Though his final estimate was off due to the dimming of the clusters by dust clouds, he was the first to realise that the Milky Way was much larger than believed and that our solar system was on its periphery, not at the centre. This is now a key part of the Copernican principle, which states that the Earth is not in a favoured position in the universe.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. First edition. Very Good +. A Very Good+ copy with light wear at the spine ends and corners, an early gift inscription on the front end paper and the rear hinge starting, but unrepaired. Otherwise an attractive copy with bright gilt and clean, unfoxed pages. The author's first novel, a semi-autobiographical work, that laid the groundwork for his masterpiece, "Ulysses." This novel is more accessible than some of his later work. It tracks the physical, emotional and psychological growth of a young Joyce as he searches for his voice and his path in life, culminating with the decision to pursue his art abroad: "I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race." "It is a mosaic of jagged fragments that does altogether render with extreme completeness the growth of a rather secretive, imaginative boy in Dublin. The technique is startling, but on the whole it succeeds." -- H. G. Wells. Very Good +.
