        Autograph Letter Signed on "Supreme Court of the United States" Stationery, 2 pp on one 8vo sheet, [printed Washington, D. C.] Chatham, July 23, 1922

      Brandeis offers high praise to American historian Samuel Eliot Morrison for his recent book on Massachusetts. "Your "Maritime History [of Massachusetts] highlights...the thrills of Elizabethan Seaman and the joys of the days when the world was young...what courage, resourcefulness and perseverance may achieve...If Massachusetts is to experience the longed for rebirth, it will come again from the sea...through coastwise commerce...." He signs, "Louis D Brandeis." Brandeis settled in Boston after having graduated from Harvard Law School. He is widely regarded as one of the most important Associate Justices in the history of the American Supreme Court due to the combination of his brilliance, his writing, and his ethics. Our letter offers insight into Brandeis' appreciation for the state of Massachusetts which became his home until he left for Washington, DC, in 1916, to serve on the Court. Tape reinforcement at centerfold. Samuel Eliot Morrison (1887-1976) was an eminent American historian and distinguished naval officer. Recognized for his research on maritime history, he is perhaps best known for the classic textbook "The Growth of the American Republic " co-authored with Henry Steele Commager, first published in 1930.

        Photo Album - Egypt - Alexandria Riots

      Egypt, 1916. Egypt Photograph Album WWI Royal Flying Corps Pilot - Alexandria Riots 1916-1919 Alexandria, Cairo, 1916-1919. Photograph album of scenes captured firsthand in Egypt by an unidentified Royal Flying Corps aviator during the Great War, who also went to the Holy Land and subsequently saw action in the Alexandria Riot of 1919 as seen herein. Contains 72 photographs, mostly sepia, neatly ensconced behind window mounts, recto and verso onto 12 olive green cardstock leaves. 8vo. string-tied album, brown cloth boards, measuring approximately 22 x 18,5 cm, Photographs measure approximately 8 x 5 cm. Some images slightly faded, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a pleasing album. Glimpses of life in Egypt during wartime, particularly in Cairo, Alexandria, and desolate regions in between, are skilfully captured by a British aviator who seems to have been especially enamoured or curious of the elusive women in burqas. He includes several lovely photographs of the people in traditional costume and going about their usual routines, in Egypt, and a scant few from Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Jaffa in Israel. Camel caravans and windmills pierce the desert regions, and a charming mud village flanks the bank of an irrigation canal between Alexandria and Cairo. At a sand stone quarry near his base camp, Arabs are loading carts on a track and working to gather stones for building huts. Shown in the adjacent photograph are their beehive-like dome shaped mud and stone dwellings. At least for a time, he was stationed near Cairo, quite possibly assigned to the Number 14 Squadron which assisted none other than Lawrence of Arabia in the Arab Revolt (1916-1918). A heavy gun on large wheels and surrounded by a sandbag wall, situated at Aboukir (Abu Qir) according to the caption verso of image, suggests this as the pilot's base, which is only three hours from Cairo. Here he photographs the Saladin Citadel with the Mosque of Muhammad Ali towering from the summit, city streets mostly with only one only one circa 1920s touring motorcar, otherwise all foot traffic and horse-drawn carriages. A heavily laden horse drawn cart rides in front of the Kobri el Gezira Bridge with its two large lion monuments The bridge was built in 1872, demolished in 1931]. Exceedingly scarce are the four snapshot photographs are taken during the riots in Alexandria in March and April 1919 (Egyptian Revolution of 1919). Other views of Alexandria include The Boulevard Ramleh (officially "Rue de la Gare de Ramleh"), street scenes with more horse drawn carts, trains at the Alexandria Station, and a view of an impoverished looking neighbourhood captioned to verso "native quarters better class." A few snapshots are taken at the Antoniadis Villa and Gardens, an important surviving landmark from the cosmopolitan era of Alexandria, built by Alexandrian-Greek magnate Sir John Antoniadis (1818-1895). From Montaza Park he draws attention across the bay to the Khedive's palace on which is mounted the Union Jack flag, so captioned to verso, after the British had deposed the Khedive in 1914. 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 19419, 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. Apart from the Alexandria Riot, a scant few scenes pertain to the war, showing two types of aircraft, sandbag barricades, a large army truck and artillery. He also photographs the Montazah Convalescent Hospital, housed in the former palace of Abbas II (the last Khedive of Egypt and Sudan), where wounded British servicemen were sent. A few select views also suggest a tour of the Holy Land and passage through Zebedani [Al-Zabadani] in southwestern Syria near the Lebanon border. . Very Good.

        Over the Brazier

      London: The Poetry Bookshop. G : in Good condition. Cover edges chipped and creased. Wear to lower spine. Foxing throughout. Previous owner's inscription dated 1916. 1916. First Edition. Illustrated card cover. 220mm x 170mm (9" x 7"). 32pp. Cover illustration by C Lovat Fraser. Graves subsequently disparaged his wartime poems and excluded them from the authorised collections of his work. When he delivers himself of lines like 'The whole field was so smelly; / We smelt the poor dog first: / His horrid swollen belly / Looked just like going burst', it is easy to see why. Nonetheless, as mentor and friend to Owen and Sassoon, he remains a pivotal figure in British war literature. 'Over the Brazier' (1916) was his first published work. .

        Die Physiologische Sehnenverpflanzung.

      . Berlin, Verlag von Julius Springer Verlag, 1916, Gr.8°, XIV, 330 pp., mit 270 zum grossen Teil farbigen Abbildungen, orig. Leinenband.. Erste und einzige Auflage dieses großen Klassikers der operativen Orthopädie! - Vorwort: Obwohl die letzten 20 Jahre festgestellt haben, daß der Sehnenplastik ein sehr bedeutender Heilwert innewohnt, sind sich doch die Orthopäden über die Einzelheiten der operativen Technik und der Nachbehandlung noch nicht einig. - Die Verschiedenheit der Meinungen erstreckt sich hauptsächlich auf die Methode der Sehnenbefestigung. So stand die von Nikoladoni angegebene Methode der Befestigung von Sehne zu Sehne, deren Hauptvertreter Vulpius ist, der von Drobnick angegebenen, von Lange ausgebauten periostalen Befestigungsmethode gegenüber. Der zufällige Umstand, daß die Art der Befestigung den Namen für die verschiedenen Operationsmethoden abgab, ist der Grund dafür gewesen, daß der Art und Weise, wie man das Sehnenende vernähen müsse, eine Bedeutung beigelegt wurde, die ihr im Gesamtbilde nicht zukommt, und daß so der Blick von wichtigeren Dingen abgelenkt wurde. - Erst die Methode der Sehnenscheidenauswechselung, bei welcher die verpflanzte Sehne durch die Scheide des Kraftnehmers hindurchgezogen und je nach den Umständen tendinös oder periostal befestigt wurde, hat unseres Erachtens einen wichtigen Anstoß dazu gegeben, die Befestigungsart nur als eine Teilerscheinung der gesamten Frage aufzufassen und vielmehr das gesamte Verfahren einheitlich unter einem Gesichtspunkt zu sehen, nämlich dem der Physiologie. - Denn außer der Befestigungsmethode gingen auch in anderen Punkten die Ansichten nicht unbeträchtlich auseinander. Vulpius wählte einen subfaszialen Verlauf, Lange einen subkutanen. Der erstere nähte unter mittlerer Spannung, der letztere unter sehr starker, Stoffel ohne irgend eine Spannung. Lange empfahl eine sechswöchige postoperative Ruhigstellung, Putti fing mit Übungen gleich nach der Operation an und ließ die Patienten auf dem operierten Bein schon nach einigen Wochen gehen. Alle diese Meinungsverschiedenheiten zeigen, daß die Sehnenplastik sich noch in der Entwickelung befindet, und daß die für sie bisher aufgestellten Gesetze ganz überwiegend auf Empirismus beruhen. Jedenfalls fehlt ihr der allseitig anerkannte Typ, den der Chirurg schon bei zahlreichen Operationen kennt, z. B. in der Gastroenterostomie. Bei dieser unterwirft sich jeder Operateur ganz allgemein gültigen Grundsätzen; gleichgültig ob er mit dem Murphyknopf oder mit der Naht arbeitet, ob die Anastomose anterior oder posterior ist, immer führt er sie so aus, daß Serosa mit Serosa, Mukosa mit Mukosa zusammenheilt, und daß das Lumen die erforderliche Weite besitzt. - So muß auch in der Sehnenplastik unter allen Umständen dahin gestrebt werden, daß für bestimmte Krankheitsbilder ganz bestimmte Indikationen aufgestellt und auf Grund deren ebenso bestimmte Operationen ausgeführt werden, d. h. wir müssen für die orthopädische Chirurgie in der Frage der Sehnenplastik auf dasselbe Ziel losgehen, das die innere Chirurgie für viele Operationen bereits erreicht hat, nämlich bestimmte Typen zu schaffen. Erst wenn das der Fall ist, können klinische Erfahrungen gegeneinander abgewogen werden und kann auch erst die Operationstechnik so weit ausgebaut werden, daß der Eingriff selber in möglichst kurzer und handwerklich einförmiger Weise sich abspielt, so daß damit die Aussichten des Dauererfolges immer höher steigen. Alle diese Forderungen können vom Standpunkt des physiologischen Gedankens aus, und nur von diesem allein, restlos erfüllt werden. - Daß es der Sehnenplastik bisher an solchen als allgemein gültig anerkannten Grundsätzen fehlt, findet seine Erklärung in zwei Tatsachen. Erstens ist eine Plastik eine überaus komplizierte Operation, bei der Meinungsverschiedenheiten von vornherein gegeben sind; auch vergeht eine sehr lange Zeit, bis das Dauerresultat festgestellt werden kann; schließlich fehlen im Gegensatz zur inneren Chirurgie fast gänzlich Autopsien und anatomische Präparate zur Untersuchung. Zweitens aber, und das ist das bei weitem Wichtigere, wissen wir über die wesentlichen anatomischen und physiologischen Eigentümlichkeiten der Sehnen noch viel zu wenig, als daß wir allgemeine Grundsätze aufstellen könnten. - Hier glaubt nun das vorliegende Buch wichtige Lücken auszufüllen; es erhebt nicht den Anspruch, endgültige Lehren für die physiologische Sehnenverpflanzung zu verkündigen, sondern es möchte eine Anregung dazu geben, daß, von den gefundenen Gesetzen ausgehend, zum Leitstern allen operativen Handelns nur noch die Physiologie gemacht wird. - Wie die ersten Kapitel zeigen, hat die Natur für die in Bewegung bestehende Funktion der Muskeln und Sehnen ganz bestimmte Vorrichtungen getroffen. Es erscheint deshalb als selbstverständlich, daß der Operateur diesen physiologischen Gleitmechanismus benutzt, um auch bei der willkürlichen Anordnung des Sehnenverlaufes dieselben Gesetze in Geltung zu lassen. Die operative und klinische Erfahrung wird dann mit der Zeit erweisen, daß manches von dem, was wir hier vorschlagen, einfacher, vielleicht auch anders gemacht werden muß, wenn man den vollen Erfolge rzielen will, und es ist selbstverständlich, daß nur eine große Zahl von vorurteilsfreien Forschern im Laufe der Jahre allgemein gültige Gesetze für die operative Technik aufstellen kann. - Es würde uns eine große Freude sein, wenn dies Buch zu einer solchen von einem umfassenden Gedanken geregelten Zusammenarbeit anregen würde. Seine Lektüre ist nicht leicht. Wir haben uns bemüht, die Sprache so abwechslungsreich zu gestalten, wie der zuweilen erbarmungslos spröde Stoff es zuließ. Wer den vollen Inhalt des Buches in sich aufnehmen will, wird es studieren müssen, und zwar nicht bloß durch wiederholtes Lesen, sondern vor allen Dingen dadurch, daß er aufs neue zum Präpariermesser greift und an der Leiche nachprüft, was wir gefunden haben. Ebenso ist es unbedingt erforderlich, daß jemand, der die Operationen machen will, diese erst zu wiederholten Malen an der Leiche üben muß. Es darf ohne Übertreibung versichert werden, daß ihre exakte Ausführung mit zu dem technisch Subtilsten gehört, was es in der Chirurgie gibt; ja, das ganze Operieren ist überhaupt mehr ein liebevolles Nachgehen in den Wegen der Natur als eine brüske Zerstörung des Bestehenden. - Da das Buch fast ausschließlich nur ganz Neues und bisher Unbekanntes bringt, so haben wir uns für verpflichtet gehalten, es nicht noch durch übermäßige Literaturangaben und Zitate zu belasten. Zwar sind diejenigen Werke genannt, auf welchen die Untersuchungen zum Teil aufgebaut sind, doch muß im übrigen der Leser selbst an Hand der anatomischen und topographischen Atlanten dort sein Gedächtnis auffrischen, wo es nicht mehr ganz sicher ist. - Wie aus der Kapiteleinteilung des Werkes hervorgeht, sind die einzelnen Gebiete getrennt bearbeitet worden. Doch hat zwischen uns in jedem Stadium der zu gleicher Zeit durchgeführten Arbeit das engste Einvernehmen und der regste Gedankenaustausch geherrscht, so daß einer dem andern aus seinem Arbeitskreis neue Anregungen und Förderungen gab. Deshalb kann das Buch im ganzen wohl als eine organische Einheit angesprochen werden. Die Operationslehre, wo alte klinische Erfahrung, neue anatomische und physiologische Kenntnisse und die Praxis des Operationssaales zusammenflössen, trägt die gemeinsame Namenszeichnung. Das Manuskript, das sprachlich in allen Teilen gemeinsam abgefaßt wurde, ist etwa im August 1914 abgeschlossen worden; der Ausbruch des großen Krieges hat seine Drucklegung verzögert. - Es ist uns ein Bedürfnis und zugleich eine Ehrenpflicht, allen zu danken, die uns bei unserer Arbeit geholfen haben. Das ist in erster Reihe Herr Prosektor Dr. Koch, der in der denkbar freundlichsten Weise uns gestattete, in der von ihm geleiteten pathologischen Abteilung des Berliner städtischen Krankenhauses am Urban zu forschen und zu arbeiten, wobei uns auch der erste Assistent des Institutes, Herr Dr. Schaff er, mit unermüdlicher Liebenswürdigkeit entgegenkam. Die Zeichnungen nach Präparaten stammen von Fräulein Lisbeth Krause, Berlin, die mikroskopischen Zeichnungen von Fräulein Bertha Neresheimer, München. Die Originale sind mit der größten Sorgfalt und Mühe hergestellt worden, und die Damen haben es sich nicht verdrießen lassen, auf unser Erfordern so lange an den Bildern zu verbessern, bis auch der letzte Rest einwandfreier Darstellung herausgeholt war. Daß diese Bilder in der Reproduktion alles wiedergeben, was die Originale enthalten, ist der Sorgfalt zu danken, mit welcher die Verlagsbuchhandlung sowohl den illustrativen Teil als auch sonst das Buch bedacht hat, und wir danken deshalb Herrn Julius Springer auf das Wärmste für das große Interess, das er dem Buch bezeigt hat. - Biesalskin.

        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

        Untitled holograph sonnet

      Marblehead, MA, 1916. Single sheet measuring 7 1/2 by 9 1/4 inches, likely torn from the guest book belonging to Cummings's Harvard classmate, lifelong friend, and eventual Dial publisher, James Sibley Watson, Jr.. Both Watson and his future wife, Hildegard Lasell have signed the page toward the top, and another guest has signed in between, filling in the year. Signed with the initial "E" and dated August 30, Cummings has composed what at first glance appears to be a conventional fourteen-line sonnet, following an abbaabba rhyme structure in the first stanza: "As if the momentarily incautious reed/ Whence trembled a world's doubtful soul and dim/ Should once again remember the swift sylvan whim/ Of the first poet, -- her spirit doth proceed/ From impertinent original deed/ Of the old maker, ocean; to whose slim/ Smooth body dawn uplifts a golden hymn,/ The younger stars recite their beckoning creed." In the second stanza, though, instead of adhering to the traditional Petrarchian cdecde structure, Cummings inverts the rhyme of the last three lines so that they mirror the first: "This is her very self; wherefrom now springs/ The precise epic of amazing sun/ Now the white lyric of the waking storm;/ Upon whose symmetry fleet hours perform/ Continuing miracle; her soul being one/ With beauty of all unbelievéd things." Although best-known for his calligrammatic poems seemingly bound by neither rhyme nor structure, Cummings employed the sonnet quite often among his body of over 2900 poems. This very early example, which appears to have been composed for an occasion, has never been published. Despite the constraints of form, one can see in this poem some of the sparkling wordplay that is characteristic of Cummings's best work, especially in the second stanza. Cummings manuscripts are rare on the market: the last example to appear at auction was in 1981. Slight toning to margins, else fine.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt and to front board in blind. Ownership inscription to the front pastedown, bookseller's ticket to the rear pastedown. Spine gently rolled, spine ends frayed, inner hinge of the front board tender, paste traces to the front pastedown. An excellent 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.
