        Original Platinum Print photograph by Elizabeth "Bessie" Buehrmann, 1916

      1916 - Original Platinum Print photograph by Elizabeth "Bessie" Buehrmann, 1916. 9 x 7 inches with border and frame to measure 14 x 10.5 inches. A wonderful photo of a boy in a sailor outfit transfixed by a sunroom aquarium. The photograph is signed and dated in pencil below the print, which is on a textured canvas-like surface. A shadow around the print appears to be original, forming a sort of border or mat around the photograph. Original frame "from the Shops of the Purnell Art Company. Baltimore". Some wear to the verso but photograph is excellent. Elizabeth "Bessie" Buehrmann (c1886 - c1963) was an American photographer and artist who was one of the pioneers of taking formal portraits of people in their own homes rather than in a studio. Successful at a young age, she was accepted as an Associate Member in Alfred Stieglitz's important Photo-Secession at just 18 years old. In 1909 Stieglitz included three of her prints in the prominent National Arts Club exhibition which he organized. Another famous photographer, Robert Demachy, insisted her prints be included in an important show he was organizing in Paris the next year. A major show of hers opened at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1908, and 73 of her photographs are in the permanent collection of the Met. An excellent print by this major photographer.

        SIGNED LETTER TO SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MCADOO, 1916

      1916. Very Good. TARBELL, Ida M. SIGNED LETTER TO SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MCADOO, 1916, REFUSING A POSITION ON THE TARIFF COMISSION. One page, one side, 8 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches, blue personal stationery with Tarbell's address. Typed. Letter creased horizontally and vertically, two corners slightly creased. Overall very good condition. In this letter, dated December 30, 1916, Tarbell graciously declines the Secretary's proposal (via Wilson) that she serve on the Tariff Commission: "...I hope that you know that I do consider it a privilege and an honor ... I am not physically fit to undertake the work. I have held very confining positions for years, and recently have had to vary my work ... It only means, however, that I have had to seek a change of work, not that I am retired. As a matter of fact I was never working harder." Tarbell proposes that she might aid the Commission by "interpreting it to the public ... through my professional channels." She makes reference to her tariff work of a few years past, which left her "in a rather anarchist mood on the subject ... Still, if I do attempt to write or talk again on the subject, I shall, for the sake of the cause, sink my anarchism and be wise as a serpent." Tarbell's THE TARIFF IN OUR TIMES was published in 1911, and made investigation of how the tariff system benefited businesses rather than the public.

        Typed letter signed to Gilman D'Arcy Paul

      Baltimore 1916 - Mencken, Henry Louis (1880-1956). Typed letter signed to J. Gilman D'Arcy Paul (1893-1960). 2 pages. Baltimore, n.d. [1917]. 152 x 217 mm. Light soiling and creasing, lower edges a bit frayed, but very good.Excellent and characteristically acerbic letter from satirist and critic H. L. Mencken, regarded as one of the most influential American writers of the first half of the 20th century. His correspondent was Gilman D'Arcy Paul, a journalist, diplomat and civic leader in Baltimore.The letter opens with a brief discussion of the merits of Mencken's great friend Theodore Dreiser (1871-1945), whom Mencken championed despite acknowledging Dreiser's faults as a novelist:". . . You tell the horrible truth about Dreiser with surgical accuracy, but he still remains the best of the corn-fed herd. There is something Mary MacLaneish about him: his self-revelations are immense. Howells is too discreet and shallow. James is merely a fifth-rate Englishman. Dreiser really belongs to our fair republic, and shows the Knight of Pythias complex. I wish you knew him. He is more fun than a massacre."The other authors referred to here are William Dean Howells (1837-1920), Henry James (1843-1916) and Canadian writer Mary MacLane (1881-1929), author of several scandalous "confessional" memoirs. The Knights of Pythias is an American fraternal organization devoted to the ideals of loyalty, honor and friendship. The letter goes on to mention one of Mencken's forthcoming books (not named here, but probably the first series of his Prejudices) and touches on his pacifist politics:"My book will not appear until after the war. If I printed it now it would have to be expurgated to the point of inanity . . . I shall hold it, insert the ghastly truth, and then throw it overboard while the coroner's jury is still sitting. "I am 36, overweight, suffer from diabetes, chilblains and malaria, and am conscientiously opposed to war, Woodrow [Wilson] and capital punishment. Let the storm rage!"Mencken ends by recommending Willard H. Wright's Misinforming a Nation (1917), a diatribe against the Anglophilia of the Encyclopaedia Britannica; Wright's views would have meshed well with Mencken's own distrust of British "propaganda." Mencken was Wright's patron and mentor, and had helped the younger author obtain a position as culture columnist for the New York Evening Mail. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        World War One Tabernacle with Intricate Inlay and Marquetry Work: Wereld Oorlog's Gedenkenis 1914-15-16

      Belgium presumed, 1916 or 1917. Very Good. A highly unusual piece, probably one-of-a-kind, and as a memorial to those who sacrificed up to then in the First World War, uncommon in its general conception -- one will not find a lot of examples of artwork that is somewhat similar to this piece either. Large, measuring closed 81 by 54 cm. Each of two panels or doors is 69 by 27 cm and these open to reveal additional decoration. The doors on the outside have ten place names written with inlay running in diagonal zigzags: Vlaanderen, Antwerpen, Mechelen, Leuven, Namen, Zaleszoziki, Dunaburc, Salonika, Kaukasus and Yolmein. In between these place names, which represent battlefronts, places of contention or towns somehow suffering from the attacks by the Central Powers, there are playful inlays, that capture various instruments of warfare, or somehow loosely allude to such, such as a plane, a cannon, a ship. These are rendered with a child-like simplicity. On the inside of the doors the scheme is continued, but here the ten names are of the larger regions that these places are associated with, such as Lotharingen and the Dardanelles. The inlay motives here include a balloon, a red cross cart, a row boat. On the back panel, now also revealed, are the names of the combattants, and this includes both the Allies and Central Powers. Twelve countries are listed, including Japan, Montenegro, Bulgaria, and of course all of the main combatants at that time: England, Germany, Austria, Italy, Russia, Turkey, etc. The dating of this tabernacle, in fact, can be very confidently placed as 1916 or 1917 because of the conspicuous absence of the United States, which was still neutral and didn't enter the war until on April 6, 1917. Beside each of the twelve country names are inlays of tools and weapons of warfare -- a kind of military iconology. Included are things such as an anchor and a trumpet and bugle, however. Among the things making this a highly uncommon piece is that while it was clearly done by a citizen on the Allied side, it seems to express some sympathy for the casualties and suffering in the Central Powers as well. Minor losses of inlay pieces -- none of this is conspicuous or seriously affect the beauty and integrity of the piece. The door panels do not shut completely, as they probably did when the piece was created.

        Cours de linguistique générale

      Lausanne & Paris: Librairie Payot & Cie,, 1916. Octavo. Original printed brown wrappers. Preserved in glassine wrapper and red morocco-backed folding case. A fine copy, rare thus. First edition of Saussure's most influential work, published posthumously in 1916 by former students Charles Bally and Albert Sechehaye on the basis of notes taken from his lectures at the University of Geneva. The Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure (1857–1913) is regarded as the father of modern linguistics. A lecturer on ancient and modern languages, Saussure only began to teach the Cours in 1906, though it dominating his thinking until his death in 1913. It became one of the seminal linguistics works of the twentieth century, chiefly for the innovative approach that Saussure applied in discussing linguistic phenomena. Its central notion is that language may be analyzed as a formal system of differential elements, apart from the messy dialectics of real-time production and comprehension. Examples of these elements include the notion of the linguistic sign, the signifier, the signified and the referent. Saussurian structures provided the central tenets for modern structural linguistics in the twentieth century, and the principles and methods employed by structuralism were soon adopted by scholars and literary critics in many other disciplines.

        A MODERN ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM CONTAINING "ERIN! THE TEAR AND THE SMILE IN THINE EYES," AND OTHER POEMS

      London, 1916. Colophon SIGNED by Sangorski n. Hardcover. 219 x 156 mm (8 5/8 x 6 1/8"). 33, [1] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). Colophon SIGNED by Sangorski. SUPERB JADE GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, ORNATELY INLAID AND GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers framed by swirling leafy fronds bearing gilt flowers and inlaid red morocco berries, large central recessed panel in the shape of a shield outlined in red morocco and densely stippled with gilt and tooled with shamrocks, that on the upper cover with a central green morocco rectangle bearing the title, that on the lower cover containing an oval medallion inlaid with the poet's monogram in blue and brown morocco; raised bands, spine compartments with leafy gilt fronds and red berries, gilt titling, turn-ins framed by multiple gilt rules with floral cornerpieces, moss green watered silk endleaves (these a recent replacement), all edges gilt. In an attractive green morocco folding box lined with felt. Titles in red, a handful of initials in blue or red ink with intricate penwork, 25 LARGE, ORNATE INITIALS in colors and burnished gold, many of these with extensions, six of them accompanied by borders of various sizes; a portrait miniature (signed "AS 1916") and full border on title page, A LARGE OVAL PORTRAIT of a weeping Irish maiden within a full border of twining hairline stems, fern fronds, and burnished gold shamrocks, AND FOUR FINELY PAINTED MINIATURES of various pastoral landscapes. Ratcliffe, "Hidden Treasures," SJR-377. Five shamrocks on lower cover missing tiny patches of gilt, a couple of leaves with small dark spots from burnished gold on the opposite side, but A BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN, clean and bright internally with rich colors and shining gold, and in a glistening unworn binding. Everything about this volume proclaims "Ireland": the green leather binding tooled with gilt shamrocks, the profusion of green and burnished gold shamrocks in the borders, the black-haired, blue-eyed colleen weeping like Deidre of the Sorrows, the peaceful landscapes with soft cloudy skies and rolling green hills, and the text extolling the beauties and virtues of the author's native land. Dublin-born Moore (1779-1852) achieved in his day a popularity among the London literati second only to Byron, a close personal friend for whom he served as literary executor and who contributed to Moore's success in both direct and indirect ways. DNB observes that "in Ireland he was pre-eminent, and on his visits there could rely on an ecstatic welcome at any public occasion." Calligrapher and illuminator Alberto Sangorski (1862-1932) was particularly gifted in capturing the mood of the writings he turned into works of visual attractiveness. The portraits here are especially appealing, and his favored--somewhat melancholy--palette of blue, dark green, and purple in the borders and initials is well suited to these odes to Moore's beautiful but troubled island.

        President Wilson Defines Patriotism; Americans Should Serve Òto the utmost limits of self-sacrificeÓ

      - President Wilson Defines Patriotism; Americans Should Serve Òto the utmost limits of self-sacrificeÓ.The outbreak of World War I resulted in an upsurge in patriotism in the United States, even though it was not yet enmeshed in the conflict. One manifestation of this was Americanization Committees that were set up to promote American values and the teaching of the English language to immigrants who wanted to become American citizens. In the spring of 1916, President Wilson was running for reelection and was anxious to associate himself with patriotic sentiments. That is why, in response to an invitation from the Kansas City branch of the Committee, he took the rather unusual step of crafting a statement that reflected his personal view of what patriotism meant. Typed Letter Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, June 19, 1916, to Henry H. Rosenfelt. ÒI have learned with the greatest interest of the plans of the Kansas City Americanization Committee to celebrate Americanization Day at the Polytechnic Institute on the Fourth of July, and want to express to you my very deep interest in the objects of the meeting. I wish I might be there to join with the rest of you in expressing my deep devotion to the great country we all love and should all serve to the utmost limits of self-sacrifice. I hope that the spirit of the meeting may enter into every man who attends it.ÓWilson was not the kind of man who flaunted his patriotism and waved it under everyoneÕs nose. Therefore, statements like this are quite uncommon, this being the strongest such sentiment of his we have had. A few of the words are circled, quite possibly by a newspaper highlighting them for publication. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
