        The Masses - August, 1916

      New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916 New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916. The August, 1916 issue (Volume VIII, Number 10, whole number 62). Large Folio, illustrated stapled wraps, 47 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. Spots of soil at white areas of covers, moderate spine damage, primarily at top, 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 August, 1916 included Eastman, John Reed; James Hopper; Sherwood Anderson; Arturo Giovannitti; Helen Hoyt; Helen L. Wilson; Elizabeth Waddell; Louis Untermeyer; Charles Erskine Scott Wood; Helen Marot; William English Walling; Floyd Dell; Frank W. Garrison; and Dante Barton. Art was contributed by Arthur B. Davies; Cornelia Barns; Boardman Robinson; Robert Minor; Elizabeth Grieg; Arthur Young; and Eugene Higgins, with Davies executing the front cover, and Higgins the rear cover. Check out all of these names. At 47 pages, one of the longest issues of The Masses, which was usually between 20 and 30 pages long. An extraordinarily rare piece of American publishing and political history. Please see scans. l-lng3

        ALS letter from Jacob Epstein to Joseph Holbrooke and a similar ALS from Mrs Epstein also to Holbrooke. June 3rd 1916 and 15 October 1917.

      Self-published., London 1916 - Jacob Epstein. ALS letter, signed in full, dated June 3rd 1916 to the English Composer Josef (Joseph) Holbrooke. The letter asks if he can introduce Holbrooke to Joseph van Dieren (who went on to write the first mongraph on Epstein) a young Dutch composer (preferably at The Cafe Royal) he then goes on to say that he is exhibiting The Torso of the "Rock Drill" at the Goupil Gallery. He goes to mention that he is writing this in the care of the Aeolian Hall. Two sheets, 'Van Dieren!' in blue crayon on reverse of second sheet. The letter from Margaret Gilmour Dunlop Epstein (his first wife) dated 15 October 1917 on the 23 Guildford Street, Holborn, headed blue paper. This discusses the head of Holbrooke made by Epstein, saying she has 'gave permission to (Alvin Langdon) Coburn to do (photograph) your head in the Leicester Galleries where it is now', This is a reference to Epstein's first show in London at the Leicester Galleries in 1917, where the head of Holbrooke was shown; 'Your head has received very good notices some critics found it showed intellectual ferocity, another found it the study of great temperament', ; she goes on to mention that she is just off to Plymouth as Mr Epstein's regiment is stationed there. Rock Drill a work of 1913 was a pivotal work of English Modernism, first shown in The London Group show of 1915, a pivotal exhibition of English Modernism encompassing the Vorticists and the Camden Town Group' . Epstein's interest in Vorticism was short-lived and he only cast the torso in Bronze, however his Rock Drill was the masterpiece of English Modernist Sculpture even though it only exists in facsimile. Alvin Langdon Coburn (June 11, 1882 – November 23, 1966) was an early 20th-century photographer who became a key figure in the development of American pictorialism. He became the first major photographer to emphasize the visual potential of elevated viewpoints and later made some of the first completely abstract photographs. He met Ezra Pound, who introduced him to the short-lived Vorticism movement in Britain. These new visual aesthetics intrigued Coburn and, provoked by his growing spiritual quest, he began to re-examine his photographic style. He responded by making a bold and distinctive portrait of Pound, showing three over-lapping images of differing sizes. Within a brief period he moved from this semi-representative image to a series of abstract images that are among the first completely non-representative photographs ever made.To make these images Coburn invented a kaleidoscope-like instrument with three mirrors clamped together, which when fitted over the lens of the camera would reflect and fracture the image. Pound called this instrument a "Vortoscope" and the resulting photographs "Vortographs".[7] He made only about 18 different Vortographs, taken over a period of just one month, yet they remain among the most striking images in early 20th century photography. He published two volumes of portraits 'Men of Mark' in 1913 and 'More Men of Mark' in 1922. Details of Alvin Langdon Coburn's striking portrait of Joseph Holbrooke at the wheel of car in leather coat smoking a cigar can be found in the George Eastman Collection. Joseph Charles Holbrooke (5 July 1878 – 5 August 1958) was an English composer, conductor, and pianist. In 1908, Thomas Beecham premiered Holbrooke's Apollo and the Seaman -- sometimes referred to as the Apollo Symphony -- with a multimedia element in the form of magic lantern slides shown in the darkened concert hall that provided a visual narrative to go along with the piece; these got out of sync with the music and handed Holbrooke his first failure. However, the funeral march from Apollo was a favorite of Captain Robert Scott and was much played at memorials held for Scott after he perished on an ill-fated Antarctic expedition in 1912. Apollo also attracted the attention of Lord Howard de Walden, who, with Holbrooke, embarked on a cycle of music dramas based on Welsh folklore -- T [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Spine of dust jacket with minimal tape strengthening at foot and lower edge of front fold. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.“The tales of this book, both written and illustrated by Dulac, were drawn from the folklore of Russia, England, Flanders, Belgium, Italy, France, Ireland, Serbia and Japan. Dulac was able to employ the full scope of his versatility in creating a national mood in each illustration. During this period of his work, Dulac had immersed himself in the artistic traditions of folklore. He was partly stimulated by his friendship with Yeats (whose interest in Celtic folklore was legendary) and partly awakened to ethnic themes by his 1913 cruise through the eastern Mediterranean. Also at this time he was influenced by his encounters with the Russian-born designer Léon Bakst and Bakst’s stage work for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes” (Hughey).Hughey 47a.

The bottles of powders have been sealed, but the chopped chocolate and cocoa beans are still able to be opened and seen/smelled. In the door of the sample box are four chocolate samples: a bar of Baker's Sweet Chocolate Vanilla, a small tin jar of Breakfast Cocoa, a bar of pure Baker's chocolate, and a bar of German's Sweet Chocolate. All objects in sample case are in rightful places. & & The "Baker Chocolate Company" is known as the oldest producer of chocolate in the United States. Dr. James Baker met Irishman John Hannon, a skilled chocolatier on the banks of the Neponset River. Hannon's skill, previously limited to production of chocolate in England and Europe, was funded by Baker and formed the first American Chocolate company "Hannon's Best Chocolate" in 1765. 15 years later, after Hannon disappeared on a trip to the West Indies, his wife sold Baker the company and the name was changed to the Baker Chocolate Company. & & Baker's sons Edmund and Walter continued in the family business, securing their name with Walter's law studies in copyright and inheritance law. The Baker Chocolate Company offered something remarkable - a money back guarantee were their customers not fully satisfied with their purchase. As a marketing tactic, this idea was pure gold. The company continued to thrive. The Baker Chocolate Company is also well known for their logo of La Belle Chocolatiere - from a 1743-45 portrait by Liotard of a young woman serving chocolate. & & In 1896 the Baker Chocolate Company was sold to the Forbes Syndicate, which largely expanded the company over the next 30 years by adding further buildings and productions. In 1927 the precursor to "General Foods" cereal company, known as "Postum Cereal Company" bought Baker and moved the production from Dorchester, Massachusets to Delaware. By 1979, Walter Baker & Co. was incorporated into the well-known "Kraft Foods." & & While . Many b/w photographic images throughout. 6 inserted plates at rear of color illustrated chocolate wrappings/ advertisements for the items.

        THE TURTLES OF TASMAN

      1916. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1916. 5 pp undated ads. Original mauve cloth pictorially decorated in black and orange. First Edition, which consisted of 5914 copies -- far fewer than many of London's earlier works. Jack spent most of 1915 and early 1916 on two extended trips to Hawaii, and the eight tales of this collection were written there. During this time Jack reached out to his estranged fifteen-year-old daughter Joan, appealing to her to start getting to know him via the mails (since he knew his ex-wife had forbidden their daughters to meet Charmian). The title story is a fantasy "in which a dark-eyed, flashing daughter came back to a ranch with her dying father in order to hear his stories of adventure and to light his cigars until he passed away in peace" [Sinclair]. The titles of the final two tales of the book are further indication that Jack knew his days were numbered: "Finis" and "The End of the Story." Jack London died about a month after TURTLES was published.~This is an attractive book (decorative trade binding by "G.H."), in remarkably clean, unrubbed, fine condition. In our experience this is a rather scarce title, especially in decent condition. Sisson & Martens p. 90; Blanck 11968.

        "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.

        Silence *

      Librairie Kündig, Genève 28.12.1916. - En feuilles 42 x 33, sous cartable illustré au premier et quatrième plat, triple rabat en fin. 12 lithographies originales, dont 11 en sépia foncé et 1 en sanguine, tirées par Sonor à Genève. Première ouvrage imprimé de l'artiste, pas bien gai puisqu'il s'agit d'une suite d'estampes sur le thème de la guerre, et début des relations avec l'imprimeur-éditeur-libraire Kündig qui deviendra le plus fidèle défenseur et propagateur de l'oeuvre livresque de Barraud.A défaut des introuvables Japon, un exemplaire sur Fabriano au moins (l'ironie féroce de cette suite macabre y gagne beaucoup) est vivement conseillé vu la fragilité du tirage ordinaire, ces derniers étant de surcroît la plupart du temps bien défraîchis.Précisons encore que les deux premiers papiers sont signés par l'artiste et monogrammés par l'éditeur. Et enfin que l'achevé d'imprimé figure en troisième de couverture et que la première planche, "La main de fer" (sanguinolente avec, ce n'est jamais précisé, une pointe de bleu dans la chevelure) est tirée au recto d'un feuillet double, contenant en page trois la justification de ce portefeuille. Édition originale. L'un des 50 Fabriano signés, outre 5 Japon qui le sont aussi et 500 papier anglais.

        Two photograph albums of a British WWI soldier in the Palestine Campaign.

      Palestine and Egypt, 1916-1918.. Two albums: 116 and 116 (together 232) black-and-white photographs (vintage prints), mostly c. 8 x 6 cm, set in window pages (square and round windows). Meticulously captioned throughout in white and yellow paint.. Two photograph albums belonging to a British medical officer serving in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign during the latter part of the First World War. While a few of the images show the fading typical of private photos collections of the type, the majority has retained surprisingly crisp contrast, and many contain fine, well-differentiated detail in spite of the extreme lighting conditions under which they were taken, indicating an unusual proficiency of the photographer in exposing and developing his films. Edward Guest, who has signed his name to both inside front covers, served in the 2/1st East Anglian Field Ambulance, part of the 54th Division's Royal Army Medical Corps in the Territorial Force. The first album offers "photographs of the Suez Canal Zone. Ap[ri]l 1916 to Xmas 1916"; the second "contains views of the advance made by the British across the Sin[ai] desert into Palestine 1917-18". The albums are inscribed "Book 2" and "Book 3", respectively; a former "Book 1", which probably contained photographs of army training in Britain, is not preserved with the set. Among the diverse subjects are the Canal and its environs, the officers and men of the Field Ambulance, "light railways running to outposts", trenches, fortifications, and tent camps (with scenes of camp life), an Indian camel corps and transport camels used as ambulances, fishing from pontoon bridges, as well as views of the desert, an expedition into Sinai, shell-shocked men in Gaza, the ruins of shelled buildings, "Turks amo' train after naval gunnery", camping in a dried-up wadi, soldiers' graves in the desert, "laying telegraph wires" (by camel), "making a railway cutting", a railway accident, a cannon captured from the Turkish army, irrigation pumps and vegetation in Palestine, a "Beduin of Palestine", "Arab girls of P[alestine]", humongous desert insects, market scenes and merchants, grilling camel flesh, and ultimately, street scenes in Jerusalem, views of the city, the Mosque of Omar, and Jericho. - The 54th division was moved to the Egyptian Expeditionary Force under General Murray in 1916 and garrisoned the southern part of the Suez Canal. It later joined in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign, suffering heavy losses in the Second Battle of Gaza and fighting in the successful Third Battle of Gaza under General Bulfin. By the end of 1917 General Allenby's forces had taken Jerusalem.

        Illustrations by Hansi and Poulbot

      . Half Morocco. Very Good Minus. Ten mounted caricature postcards by Hansi from the 1916 series, Tetes de Boches (this is the complete series), nine, by Poulbot, all relating to World War One. Hansi, the pen name of Jean-Jacques Waltz (1873 - 1951), was famous both as an illustrator and French patriot, the latter for his unflagging contribution to the French revanchist movement to reclaim the Alsace, lost as a result of the Franco-Prussian War, and returned to France after the First World War. Poulbot (1879 - 1946) was a well-known affichiste celebrated for both his World War One posters and postcards and for his illustrations of Parisian street kids. The Hansi pictures are simple, humorous character portraits rendered in color, while the Poulbot drawings, all black and white line drawings, depict scenes in which the amusing caption explains what is going on. Children figure prominently in the Poulbot scenes; all of them, though, touch on the ongoing war in one way or another. The cards are all attractively mounted onto heavy card stock leaves within rectangular borders. There is no title page as such, but there is a presentation page. This copy was given to Abbe Jean Borde d'Arrere, Aumonier Militaire and Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur, whose name and title is actually mounted onto the page, suggesting that the same album may have been given to a number of honorees. Nonetheless, this is a scarce item, with no copies to be found on OCLC. Poulbot is mispelled on the spine as "Roulbot". Cover substantially edgeworn and rubbed, with cloth mottled and soiled. The interior is tight and clean. Former owner's pencil inscription on ffep.

        Typed letter signed to Gilman D'Arcy Paul

      Baltimore, 1916. <p>Mencken, Henry Louis (1880-1956). Typed letter signed to J. Gilman D&#39;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.</p><p>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&#39;Arcy Paul, a journalist, diplomat and civic leader in Baltimore.</p><p>The letter opens with a brief discussion of the merits of Mencken&#39;s great friend Theodore Dreiser (1871-1945), whom Mencken championed despite acknowledging Dreiser&#39;s faults as a novelist:</p><p>". . . 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."</p><p>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.</p> The letter goes on to mention one of Mencken&#39;s forthcoming books (not named here, but probably the first series of his Prejudices) and touches on his pacifist politics:</p><p>"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&#39;s jury is still sitting.</p> "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!"</p><p>Mencken ends by recommending Willard H. Wright&#39;s Misinforming a Nation (1917), a diatribe against the Anglophilia of the Encyclopaedia Britannica; Wright&#39;s views would have meshed well with Mencken&#39;s own distrust of British "propaganda." Mencken was Wright&#39;s patron and mentor, and had helped the younger author obtain a position as culture columnist for the New York Evening Mail. </p>
