        Southern Tibet: Discoveries in Former Times Compared with my Own Researches in 1906–1908.

      Stockholm: Lithographic Institute of the General Staff of the Swedish Army, 1916-22 - 9 text volumes in quarto, folio volume of panoramas, and 2 folio portfolios of maps, together with quarto prospectus, 13 volumes in all. 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. Text volumes contain over 300 plates, some in colour, a few double-page or folding, and around 250 maps, panorama volume with 105 double-page plates, map portfolios with 99 maps, most double-page, prospectus has 6 half-tone plates, 2 double-page coloured plates and 2 folding maps, one coloured. 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.

        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.

        The Masses - August, 1916

      The Masses Publishing Company, New York 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.

        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]

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.

      Dorchester, Mass:: Walter Baker & Co. Ltd.,. 1916.. Book: Oblong format. 5-1/4" x 8-1/8". Sample box: 5-1/2" (H) x 9-1/2" (L) x 3-5/8" (W). 39 pp. 6 plates at rear of illustrations of chocolate packagings.. Maroon cloth binding, gilt stamped lettering to front board. Oak finish (varnished) box, with gold plate nailed to front with producer details.. Moderate wear to binding of book (light soiling to edges [esp. top of. rear board]). Gutter break between front pastedown and ffep. Modest. wear to sample box, gilt plate and wood slightly scratched and worn.. A VG set.. Sample box includes: 4 glass bottles of chocolates, covered in white canvas shrugs. The four bottles look to contain: Chocolate powder, full sized cocoa beans, finely chopped dark chocolate, and a while powder substance. 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.
