        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. .

        The Democratic Party represents a larger part of the progressive power and thought of the country than any other party

      - "The Democratic Party represents a larger part of the progressive power and thought of the country than any other party"ÒFor myself, I sincerely desire and have tried to deserve the support of all progressive, forward-looking men.Ó~WilsonÕs progressive policies brought the Democratic Party back from the wilderness where it had languished since the Civil War, and resulted in establishment of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Trade Commission, as well as passage of the Clayton Anti-trust Act and the Farm Loan Act. The nationÕs leader during World War I, his idealism had a permanent effect on the goals of American foreign policy, and his internationalist outlook favoring U.S. involvement abroad came after World War II to be seen as prophetic.The 1916 Democratic Convention was held from June 14 to 16 and renominated Wilson. The Republicans had met a few days earlier, and in a move to reunite with their Progressive faction that had split off in 1912, nominated Supreme Court Justice Charles Evans Hughes, who was acceptable to all. Then the Republicans ran their campaign on the premise that Hughes had inherited the Progressive mantle of Theodore Roosevelt. Hughes was a moderate candidate and by no means the conservative that Taft had been. However, to President Wilson, the idea that the Republicans were the Progressives in the 1916 election was wrong, and he went about setting the record straight. In doing so, he explained what the Democratic Party stood for, and reflected on why he was Òproud to be its nominee.ÓTyped Letter Signed on White House letterhead, two pages, July 14, 1916, during his reelection campaign, to J. C. Parker, Editor of Lefax Magazine in Philadelphia. ÒI have read your letter of July tenth with a great deal of attention and with very serious interest, and realize as keenly as you do the anomalous conditions by which many of the Progressive voters of the country are being confused and misled, as well as the old, inveterate attractions which seem to control the choice of many of them in matters political. In answer to the questions contained in your letter, I will say that, for my own part, I have no jealousy whatever of independent organizations intended to keep the independent voters of the country reminded of their obligations and fully informed as to parties and the conditions under which their votes are being solicited. For myself, I sincerely desire and have tried to deserve the support of all progressive, forward-looking men. I believe, and I think that recent experience has confirmed the belief, that the Democratic Party represents a larger part of the progressive power and thought of the country than any other party, and that it can be made the instrument, and is being made the instrument, of leadership in the direction which all men who love justice and progress must wish to take. It is for that reason that I am proud to be its nominee and to have the opportunity to lead it.Ó The magazine marked up page two of this letter for publication. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Passing of the Great Race or The Racial Basis of European History

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1916. First. First edition. A sound, very good copy with some light wear and a tiny hole at the edge of the first few leaves. A small note appears on the front pastedown in the hand of George Sarton: "from Mrs. Backlund, Cambridge, Mas. 1805. G.S." Below this is the ownership signature of Ashley Montagu and a small note in his hand: "Presented to me by George Sarton. A.M." A fascinating association. The most prestigious award of the History of Science Society, the Sarton Medal, is named after George Sarton, as one of the founders of the modern era in the history of science. He defined much of its content, suggested the basic questions and methods, and produced several books which are still worth consulting. He founded the journals Isis (in 1912) and Osiris (in 1936), and wrote extensively for them. He was, incidentally, the father of the poet and novelist, May Sarton. M.F. Ashley Montagu, a world-renowned anthropologist, was the foremost integrator and interpreter of sciences, and also became the most significant generalist of the 20th Century. He was also the editor of Studies and Essays in the History of Science and Learning Offered in Homage to George Sarton (New York, 1947). His association to this volume is particularly significant, as it must have influenced his first book, Man's Most Dangerous Myth: The Fallacy of Race, which demolished for the majority of his colleagues everywhere the scientific credibility of the concept of race. .

        Violanta: Oper in Einem Akt von Hans Muller

      Mainz and Leipzig: B. Schott's Sohne. 1916. First. First edition. Quarto. Rebound in black cloth, with front wrap mounted on front board. Small book label of collector Herbert Boyce Satcher on the front board, else near fine. Tipped to the page facing the first page of music is an Autograph Musical Quotation (approximately 6" x 10") Inscribed and Signed by Korngold in 1936. Korngold's second opera, written when the Austrian musical prodigy and composer was 19 years old (as a child he had been praised by Gustav Mahler, Artur Schnabel, and Richard Strauss). Korngold went to Hollywood in 1934 to adapt Mendelssohn's music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, and returned to score Michael Curtiz's The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). Fortuitously, he arrived back in Hollywood just before the Nazis annexed Austria, and, being Jewish, decided to stay in America, where he spent the rest of his life. Korngold won an Academy Award for Robin Hood and it was the first of several films scored by him, directed by Curtiz, and starring Errol Flynn, including The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) and The Sea Hawk (1940). After WWII he returned to classical composition, though today he is generally considered, along with Max Steiner, the father of film music. .

        A Portrait of The Artist as a Young Man

      New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in red morocco, titles and decoration to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, plain black coated endpapers, gilt edges. A fine 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. So it was Huebsch that undertook the true first publication. He would send from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK in February 1917. Whilst the number of copies issued in America is undetermined the number could not have been large since he had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man was Joyce's first novel and introduces to the world one of the two key characters in Ulysses. Stephen Dedalus was created by the author as a kind of doppelganger - the author as he would have been had he not left Ireland in 1904. Its opening sentence by itself redefining what a novel could be.

Original printed card wraps, except volume III which is a well-made facsimile, later printed custom dust jackets, preserved in matching cream cloth slipcases with maps of Tibet laid down on upper covers. Some wear and browning of the wraps, particularly to spines, a few minor chips, light toning to the text, particularly in the earlier volumes, but overall very good.

First and only edition. "Hedin's travels [drew] him increasingly into what Lord Curzon regarded as the British sphere of interest, and a well-orchestrated effort was set in motion to draw the Swede closer into the British camp However, his determination to reach Lhasa finally dissipated after Younghusband's mission of 1904, the justification for which Hedin needed some convincing of With Curzon's approval Hedin therefore set about planning a second expedition to Tibet, his motivation being entirely scientific." (Howgego) The removal of Curzon from India and the decision of the new Liberal government that Hedin should not be allowed into Tibet under any circumstances only spurred the furious Swede on. He quickly assembled a caravan at Srinagar and made his way to Leh from Ladakh, "By the time word got through to the British representative in Leh, ordering him to restrain Hedin by force if necessary, the Swede was already on his way to Tibet." Carried out in two "campaigns," driven by the belief that this might be his last opportunity to fill the remaining "vast blanks on the map," Hedin's survey was an incomparable feat of Himalayan exploration. "The most important and comprehensive collection of material relating to Tibet up to the date of publication. Not only does it include detailed accounts of Transhimalaya, the Karakoram, Chang Tang and Lake Manasarowar regions, but also in-depth studies of previous explorers of the region, and a particularly important collection of maps of the entire area." (Hess) An excellent set of this highly desirable record. Howgego IV, H32; Hess S 49, 5; Yakushi H105.

        The Masses - March, 1916

      New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916 New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916. The March, 1916 issue (Volume VIII, Number 5, whole number 57). Large Folio, illustrated stapled wraps, 26 pp. Very Good by any periodical standard; as the very inexpensively-produced budget-of-the-heart icon The Masses was, this example is certainly better than very good, by its own standard. Perimeter toning of front cover, thin spine slit at bottom 1/3, rear cover shows spots of soil and a thin dark stain (see scans); very small-scale edge wear; modest toning to the remarkably healthy contents. See scans. Certainly one of the most seminal socio-political American publications of the last 200 years, The Masses was a collection of ideological art, opinion and reporting - usually contributed with little or no compensation - which strongly represented socialist / marxist values, but in a larger sense was representative of labor, women's rights, and radical left issues in general as those were at that time. Famous names of the era often contributed work, but the names of the regulars are themselves all now in history books. The now-timeless publication was shut down by the U.S. Government in 1918 on the basis of postal regulations, after two intense and ideologically-charged trials. Eastman and his sister, Crystal, then started The Liberator to carry on; after The Liberator closed its doors in 1926, The New Masses, under the primary leadership of Mike Gold, carried the radical flag. The Masses, as the first, is also the rarest. Text contributors to this issue of March, 1916 included Eastman, Sherwood Anderson; Frank Bohn; Arthur Bullard; Jean Starr Untermeyer; Robert Minor; Witter Bynner; Elizabeth Gurley Flynn; Lydia Gibson; Will Irwin; Elsie Clews Parsons; Inez Haynes Gillmore (Irwin); Sara Bard Field; Ernest Untermann; John Haynes Holmes; Charles Erskine Scott Wood; and Charles Edward Russell. Art was contributed by H. Smith; K.R. Chamberlain; John Sloan; Maurice Becker; Stuart Davis; Arthur Young; Cornelia Barns; and Robert Minor, with Smith executing the front cover. Check out all of those names. An extraordinarily rare piece of American publishing and political history. Please see scans. l-lng3

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916 - Octavo. Original blue linen, titles to front board in blind and to spine in gilt. With the printed dust jacket. In a blue morocco-backed box. An exceptional copy in the little tanned and frayed dust jacket with a single piece of internal strengthening and minor loss at the ends of the spine panel and one corner. First edition in book form, first printing. A superb example of one of the legendary rarities of modern literature. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialization of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. So it was Huebsch who undertook the first publication. He also sent from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK in February 1917. While the number of copies issued in America is undetermined, the number cannot have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April. Although by no means scarce in poor condition in cloth, copies in any example of the original printed dust jacket are rare. Slocum 11.
