        SIGNED LETTER TO SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MCADOO, 1916

      1916 - 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.

        Process (Processes) of Wood-Cut [Woodcut] Printing Explained. ["On a Boat" / "Ferry over the Sumida"]. [Mokuhan junjozuri].

      Tokyo, The Shimbi Shoin Ltd., (1916). - Duodecimo. Pp. 4 (Introduction in English), and 20 (i.e. 40) double leaves, folded once in Japanese style, comprising of 20 progressive plates, numbered 1-20, printed from wood blocks. Captioned in English and Japanese. Letterpress tail-piece. Bound in traditional oriental format, tied with red silken threads, upper wrapper hand-printed in full colour from 20 blocks. In a very good condition (minute chip to blank corner-tip of one leaf, well away from image). A lovely book, beautifully preserved. ~ First edition. A second edition apparently appeared in 1938. "The prints made by the process of woodcut printing reproduce the slightest touch of the brush and the most delicate shades of colours in the original, the result being such as can hardly be attained by lithographs." (From the Introduction.) Through 20 progressive colour spreads, each showing separately the added colour and the result on the print itself, the book creates, step by step, a charming, full-colour reproduction, made from 20 different blocks, apparently reproducing Kiyonaga's "Ferry over the Sumida". Very rare.

        Over the Brazier

      London: The Poetry Bookshop. G : in Good condition. Cover edges chipped and creased. Wear to lower spine. Foxing throughout. Previous owner&#39;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 &#39;The whole field was so smelly; / We smelt the poor dog first: / His horrid swollen belly / Looked just like going burst&#39;, it is easy to see why. Nonetheless, as mentor and friend to Owen and Sassoon, he remains a pivotal figure in British war literature. &#39;Over the Brazier&#39; (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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s music for A Midsummer Night&#39;s Dream, and returned to score Michael Curtiz&#39;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. .
