        A (MOSTLY BLANK) COMMONPLACE BOOK

      London, 1916. n. Hardcover. Designed for and Inscribed by Queen Mary as a Christmas Gift to a Great War Volunteer. 213 x 146 mm (8 3/8 x 5 3/4"). [14] leaves with handwritten entries. QUITE PRETTY PAINTED VELLUM BY THE ROYAL SCHOOL OF ART NEEDLEWORK (their ticket on front pastedown), front cover with elaborate design of flowers, flourishes, strapwork, and olive branches, central mandorla with the monogram "A E D" (for Aimée Evelyn Pirie, Lady Dawson) the decoration in various colors and brushed gold, flat spine painted with gilt strapwork, flowers, and foliage, rear cover framed in blue and green, with a small blue palmette in the lower left corner, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Verso of front free endpaper INSCRIBED BY QUEEN MARY to "Dear Lady Dawson" (see below) and dated "Xmas 1916." Two-inch closed tear to vellum at top of front joint, minor soiling to boards, paint a little rubbed in spots, two small water stains to front cover, but the animated binding solid and generally well preserved, and the mostly unused interior completely clean and fresh. Bearing the initials of the recipient, this binding, elaborately painted to resemble needlework, was apparently created for Mary of Teck, British Queen Consort during the reign of George V and the patroness of the Royal School of Art Needlework, as a gift to present to one of the aristocratic women who took up the queen's call for wartime volunteers. It is also an historically important binding, examples of which appear on the market only infrequently. The person receiving the volume from the queen was Aimée Evelyn Pirie, Lady Dawson (1864-1946), wife of Brigadier-General Sir Douglas Frederick Rawdon Dawson (1854-1933), who had served as Master of Ceremonies to Queen Mary's father-in-law, Edward VII. Lady Dawson worked tirelessly for the war effort, establishing hospitals for soldiers in her native France. In recognition of her valuable contributions, she was named a Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (the highest class of O.B.E.) in the 1918 New Year's honors. According to its own literature, the Royal School of Art Needlework (now Royal School of Needlework) was founded in 1872, with the expressed purpose "first, to revive a beautiful art which had fallen into decay . . . and, secondly, through its revival, to provide employment for educated women who were without the means of a suitable livelihood and who would otherwise find themselves compelled to live in poverty, or be reduced to absolute destitution." From the beginning, it had a strong Arts and Crafts connection. "It commissioned designs from leading figures in the Aesthetics and Arts and Crafts Movement including . . . William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, Walter and Thomas Crane, G. F. Bodley, Fairfax Wade, Selwyn Image, Gertrude Jekyll, and others." Our vellum binding obviously does not involve any needlework, but volumes like the present one were bound by members of the school for about a decade, beginning in 1888, and this work was both exhibited and commented on in important contexts. In her "Women Bookbinders," Tidcombe says that the bindings' designs were "very attractive, but the books will not take much handling, and many examples show signs of some of the paint, especially the gold, wearing off. This vulnerability is almost certainly the reason why painted vellum bindings virtually ceased to be produced about 1898." Tidcombe mentions the exhibition of such bindings at the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society events in 1889 and 1890, bookbinding exhibitions in London in 1897 and 1898, and even in America, at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. In the words of DNB, Queen Mary made significant contributions during World War I "to national unity and well-being. With strong ideas of female responsibility and women's sphere of usefulness, she seized every opportunity to be of service. . . . The Needlework Guild, now called Queen Mary's Needlework Guild, took up the cause with frenzied determination, and the state apartments of St James's Palace soon turned into a warehouse piled high with gifts for distribution to needy cases." Lady Dawson used our album as a commonplace book, recording favorite poems that brought her comfort. The first entry is Kipling's patriotic poem "The Glory of the Garden," followed by "The Supreme Sacrifice," honoring those who died in the Great War, the latter dated August of 1918. Other poems bear dates of 1927 and 1938, and the final entry, dated 3 August 1941, is a voice from another war: "England to France," the bitter denunciation of Vichy France by poet and diplomat Robert Vansittart.

Featured throughout the album are people working, swimming, and playing on the grounds of the estate. There are photographs of carefree women in bathing costumes in the canal, dancing and performing in the water and hanging off the bridge over a tiny waterfall. There are group pictures from a fancy dress ball as well as workers taking care of a swarm of bees and other necessary tasks around the park such as milking the cows. The stately home is pictured from all angles, including the gardens. The final pages of the album show a solider dressed in uniform named Alan posing around the estate with various women from before, presumably visiting while on leave. An interesting look at women taking over the care of a manor while the Great War was in progress. .

Coming to America in 1914, he became a noted illustrator, working for a large number of publishers and advertisers and writing and illustrating several children's books of his own. In addition, he designed textiles, wallpaper, boxes, rugs, glass and pottery, and indulged his particular fancy for marionettes. He experimented with early animated cartoons, and designed some of the gigantic balloons for the annual Macy Thanksgiving parades in New York City On paper, mounted on board. Captioned, "The professor's piercing eye took in the room with a sharper glance than usual. (Surprises) " Signed lower right "Tony Sarg 16". Fine. Reed, The Illustrator in America, p. 141

      B. F. Sturtevant Company,, Hyde Park, Boston, Mass.: 1916 - Illustrated with 28 b/w images from photographs + one schematic. "The B.F. Sturtevant Co. of Hyde park, Boston, Mass. was a big engineering firm even before the advent of the new science of aeronautics. Whilst the First World War was raging in Europe, The Sturtevant Aeroplane Co. (1915- 1918) was formed by the parent company to develop military aircraft. . They produced a number of aircraft for both the army and the navy, in particular the "Battle" S4 aeroplane of naval type, and the USN bought 12 of those machines whose inner structure was all metal, a rather innovative approach for the time applied by Mr. Grover Loening, Sturtevant's chief designer. . [however], it wasn't an elegant nor fast nor agile aircraft."The company also "designed, developed and produced a number of high quality, high performance aero engines. The 5A, here advertised, was only produced through 1917. It was "was installed in the Sturtevant S- 4 and some L.W.F. V-1 training airplanes used by the Signal Corps at North Island, Calif., and Mineola, New York. Neither of these airplanes was too successful . Part of their difficulty resulted from the 5A engine which weighed more than 3.5 pounds per horsepower." [sturtivant.org].

        Entwurf für ein Bühnenbild.

      . Pinsel in Schwarz, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf festem gelblichem Karton, rechts unten signiert und datiert "Anneliese Wildeman 13.". 28,4:25,6 cm. Insgesamt nicht ganz frisch. Provenienz: Hans-Franck-Archiv, Berlin.. Der dekorativ-phantasievolle Entwurf dokumentiert, daß diese Künstlerin, über die weiter nichts bekannt ist, mit dem Pinsel gekonnt umzugehen wußte. Sie fand u.a. Erwähnung in einem Artikel der Monatshefte für Kunstwissenschaft, IX. Jahrgang 1916 (liegt nicht vor). Die Herkunft des Blattes läßt vermuten, daß Anneliese Wildemann ein Bühnenbild für ein Stück von Hans Franck entwarf, der 1914-1921 als Dramaturg für das Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus und als Leiter der angegliederten Düsseldorfer Theater-Akademie, später Hochschule für Bühnenkunst, tätig war.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und eh. Portraitpostkarte mit U.

      O. O., 1916 und 1917.. Zusammen 4½ SS. auf 3 Bll. (Qu.-)8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Professor, wohl der Philologe und Religionshistoriker Otto Kern (1863-1942). I: &quote;Nur durch Karte antworte ich auf Ihren gütigen Brief. Ich stehe seit 4 Monaten im Gefecht und habe wenig Zeit. Es freut mich, daß das Buch über meinen Kriegsschauplatz Ihnen Freude gemacht hat. Auch ich hoffe Ihnen einst in Halle noch die Hand drücken zu können und die Mitglieder der Fakultät, die mich zu ihrem Ehrendoktor ernannt hat, zu begrüßen [...]&quote; (Portraitpostkarte v. 18. Oktober 1916; die Bildseite mit einem halbfigürlichen Portrait des Militärs in Farbe und faks. Namenszug). - II: &quote;Sie sind so gütig, meines Aufenthaltes in Ihrem gastlichen Hause so freundlich zu gedenken. Ich komme mir meist sehr merkwürdig vor, eine Rolle im öffentlichen Leben zu spielen und Beachtung zu finden. Aus den Reichstagsverhandlungen der letzten Tage werden Sie ersehn, daß das auch seine Dornen hat. Aber daraus mache ich mir ebenfalls wenig. Aber die Ereignisse dieser Tage lassen es nicht gut erscheinen, daß mein Sohn bei Ihrem Verein jetzt mitwirkt. Ich scheue mich für meine Person nicht davor. Aber um die Vaterlandspartei tobt hier jetzt der Kampf und man braucht die ganze Angelegenheit gegen den Kanzler und seine Regierung. Wir fürchten einen Konflikt nicht, aber jetzt ist er nicht angebracht. Wir brauchen inneren Frieden gerade in dieser Zeit, um unser Werk zum Abschluß zu bringen. Da ich dafür eintreten muß, daß die Politik nicht in das Heer kommt oder jetzt vielmehr, daß sie wieder herauskommt, so möchte ich meinen Sohn nicht in diese Dinge verwickeln, so gerne ich ihn sonst zur Verfügung stellen würde. Da er noch im Heeresdienst steht, so muß er auch den Grundsätzen für das Heer folgen. Ist er nicht mehr im Heere, so kann er handeln wie er es für richtig hält [...]&quote; (Br. v. 9. Oktober 1917). - Frh. von Stein war Generalquartiermeister bei der OHL, Kommandierender General des XIV. Reservekorps und von Oktober 1916 bis Oktober 1918 preußischer Kriegsminister. - Kern habilitierte sich 1894 für klassische Philologie in Berlin und ging 1897 als a.o.Prof. nach Rostock, wo er seit 1900 als Ordinarius lehrte. Von 1907 bis zu seiner Emeritierung 1931 wirkte er in Halle/Saale. Neben Arbeiten zur Epigraphik arbeitete er vor allem über die Orphik und verfaßte biographische Skizzen zur Altertumswissenschaft.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. VG+ handsome copy and true first edition/first printing. Original blue cloth w blind stamped title/author on cover and gilt font on spine.299 pps. Spine is slightly rolled, cloth rubbed at extremities. Cover corners very lightly bumped. Front and back hinge partial and light crack, 1/4" ripple of cloth on back cover. No markings, paste downs, stamps, nor writing/markings of any sort within interior pages which are completely clean, tight and bright... albeit lightly age toned."Huebsch 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..." "Stephen Dedalus describes his spiritual journey through his Jesuit education and petty bourgeois Dublin to forge through 'silence, exile and cunning' the 'uncreated conscience of his race.' Following close on 'Dubliner's' (for it appeared through 1915 as a serial in 'The Egoist') The Portrait can be read either as an autobiography or a novel. A landmark in sensibility, the prose moves forward in complexity from the child's sensations at the beginning to the adolescent subtleties at the end" (Connolly). This is the first edition of the book published in New York in 1916..

        The Night After Christmas

      Stecher Lith Co., Rochester, Ny 1916 - Folio, Nice clean crisp book. Minor wear. Extremely scarce book. Illustrator Margaret Evans Price (March 20, 1888 - November 20, 1973) was a U.S. toy manufacturer. With her husband, Irving Price, and Herman Fisher,she co-founded Fisher-Price Toys in 1930. Margaret Evans was a children's book illustrator and artist. She became the first Art Director of Fisher- Price and designed push-pull toys for the opening line, based on characters from her children's books. Cute story about a little boy named Teddy that goes on grand adventures in his dreams at night. On this night he goes in his flying machine [airplane] to visit Santa Claus and thank him for his toys. While there he sees the reindeer eating voraciously after their arduous journey around the world delivering toys. Teddy has the idea to tell Santa that he should use an airplane for his Christmas Eve journey to spare the reindeer. Santa tells Teddy that the reindeer love the trip and the best way to alleviate the burden of the load they deliver would be for children to share their toys and leave holly branches that can be loaded on the sleigh and hauled home. Really a darling little story that blends the budding fascination with modern aviation and the popular Santa themes. Very unique. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Collected Poems

      Martin Secker, 1916 - Cloth just a little soiled and label slightly foxed and chipped, free end-papers browned and a little foxing in places, else a nice copy. Presentation Copy, inscribed by the author on the front free end-paper: "Mr & Mrs Reyher from Ford Madox Hueffer New York June mcmxxiv" Harvey A43b Harvey, who describes this as "Second ‘edition’ " quotes a letter from Secker: "Secker acquired the rights and 500 copies in sheets and 226 bound copies from Goschen in May 1915 and appears to have begun selling the bound copies immediately. 500 cancel titles and 500 labels for the bindings were printed and 105 copies (presumably of the Goschen-bound copies) were sold to America (name of publisher not given) in August 1915. Total sales including the American sale had reached 222 copies by December 1920, so presumably it was about then that the Goschen copies were exhausted. I see, however, that Secker bound 100 copies, presumably including the cancel titles, as early as April 1916. The last sale recorded was in October 1935, when the sales had reached 304 copies. 238 copies in sheets were destroyed by bombing in the war."

        Lustra [Signed]

      London: Elkin, Matthews, 1916. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first UK trade edition, second impression, bound in the Publisher's original buckram with blue lettering to the spine and front board (rather modest soiling to the boards, some rubbing to the spine, foxing to the endpapers and pastedowns tissue guard to frontis portrait of Pound a bit out of line, some pages roughly opened -- no dust jacket), SIGNED BY EZRA POUND on the title page. The book was first issued in a limited edition of 200 copies stamped by Pound on the title page with his orange chop device and containing the unabridged text of nine poems that were omitted from this second impression of the first edition, of which approximately 800 copies were issued simultaneously with the first impression. (This copy is a remainder binding of the second issue with the rear board of this copy is stamped in blind.) While the first impression of 200 copies was stamped Pound but not actually signed by him, and the second impression copies were not called to be either stamped or signed, this copy was actually signed by Ezra Pound on the title page making it quite a bit scarcer than even the first impression. Gallup, in explaining the abridgment of the second impression stated: "The manuscript as submitted had been set in type. . and Ezra Pound had received page-proof, when printer and publisher (apparently frightened by the suppression in the previous year of D. H. Lawrence's The Rainbow) refused, on grounds of the indecorum of certain poems, to continue with the book as set. It was eventually agreed that 200 copies would be printed 'almost unabridged'. [Elkin Matthews referred to the expurgated Poems as "very nasty".] These copies, although technically not published, were in fact sold by Elkin Mathews to those who requested the unabridged text when ordering the book. For the second impression, nine additional poems were omitted and one title altered." A notable work, Cyril Connolly included this book in his "The Modern Movement, 100 Key Books from England, France and America, 1880-1950", which work presents a list of novels, plays and poetry which were influential in the creation of Modernism. Per Connolly, the 100 books listed, best illustrate the spirit of the modern movement which "dawned with Flaubert and Baudelaire, reached its zenith early in the century and only became past history in the fifties - if it has become past history." [The list is limited to French , English and American literature because, as Connolly stated, "without knowing German or Russian, I cannot absolutely judge a book from translation, however perfect...".] While Pound was indeed controversial, T. S. Eliot stated that Pound "is more responsible for the twentieth-century revolution in poetry than is any other individual." Agreeing with Eliot decades later, Donald Hall stated "Ezra Pound is the poet who, a thousand times more than any other man, has made modern poetry possible in English." An early Pound title, SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
