        Arrangement of the Chinese Characters according to an Alphabetical System with Japanese Dictionary of 8000 Characters and List of 22000 Charakters.

      Tokyo, Kobunsha, 1916. 15, (546) pp. Green clothbound (original) volume with gold-embossed title along spine and blind-tooled publisher`s mark on front. Illustrated endpaper with floral ornamentation. Famous study of Russian Orientalist, Sinologist and scholar of Japanese Studies Otto Julius Rosenberg (1888 - 1919) on a system of classification of Chinese characters. Rosenberg studied from 1906 to 1911 at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the University of St. Petersburg, lectured by, among others, the founder of the Russian school of Indology, Sergei Oldenburg (1863 - 1934). During a study stay in Bonn in 1909, Rosenberg befriended Hermann Jacobi (1850-1937), the greatest Indologist and Sanskrit scholar of that time. As part of an internship at the Department of Oriental Languages (SOS) at the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität two years later, he also befriended the German linguist and scholar of Japanese studies, Rudolf Lange (1850 - 1933). From 1912 to 1916 he studied Buddhist Literature and Tradition at the University of Tokyo. Here Rosenberg became acquainted with the then leading Buddhist Scholars of Japan. In the course of this stay, he explored the school of Zen Buddhism as one of the first Western scientists and also became an expert for Japanese and Chinese characters used in the writing of Chinese and Japanese. In 1924, his work \"The problems of Buddhist philosophy\" was published in German. Based on ideas of Russian Sinologist and Buddhologist Vasily Vasilyev (1818 - 1900), Rosenberg developed a method of classification of Chinese and Japanese characters. He published the results of his research in a dictionary which was published in English and Japanese and which formed the basis of the so-called \"Four Corner Method\", which is still employed today in the creation of Chinese and Japanese dictionaries. This volume is extremely rare and, according to the world`s largest bibliographic database, WorldCat, it is only found in six libraries worldwide. The copy offered here was purchased from a Japanese private collection. Boards slightly stained (esp. back cover), otherwise good copy of an extremely rare and fragile item of considerable scientific work with regards to the disclosure of far-eastern language systems.

        Fear God and Take Your Own Part

      New York: George H. Doran Company, 1916. First edition of this collection of essays by the twenty-sixth President of the United States. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated by Theodore Roosevelt on the front free endpaper. In near fine condition with light rubbing. Housed in a custom half leather clamshell box. Fear God and Take Your Own Part is a collection of articles Theodore Roosevelt wrote, largely for Metropolitan Magazine, some six years after he left the presidency. The title is another way of saying that a nation must have the power and will for self-sacrifice as well as the power and will for self-protection. In the book, Roosevelt, who also wrote extensively on the outdoors, vigorously sets forth the "principles of true Americanism" that still reverberate throughout the nation today.

        Lietopisets v litsakh o Tevtonstei brani na Sloveni [Chronicle with images of the Teutonic war on Slavic land], books 1 and 2 (of three published)

      Petrograd: Lit. Ia. P. Pavlovoi and Tipo-lit Sh. Bussel (F. G. Shilov), 1916. Octavos (22 × 14 and 23.5 × 19.5 cm). Original sewn lithographed self-wrappers; printed on thick laid paper; 16 pp. each. Lithographed text and images throughout. The first pamphlet with the author's gift inscription to the front wrapper. Pre-revolutionary private ink shelfmark; else very good. First two parts of this humorous imitation of an Old Russian manuscript chronicle, about how the German enemy has brought bloodshed and suffering to the Slavic lands, produced in a small print run during the first months of World War I. Both pamphlets contain lithographically reproduced text and satirical images, such as depictions of German women, Kaiser Wilhelm, but also numerous head- and tailpieces, in imitation of Orthodox manuscripts. The author, historian, collector, and publisher Vasilii Ivanovich Uspenskii, is perhaps better known for producing a suite of 103 anti-German popular prints entitled "Pictures of the Russian War with the Germans," which likewise imitated early Russian folkloric style. In some copies, the vignettes and head pieces were colored. Lacking the third issue; the first issue appears to be the second edition ("Vtorym Tipom izdadesia"). Colored copies are occasionally seen in the trade. A scarce example of popular anti-German writing, which draws both on the tradition of the lubok and of the Russian medieval chronicle; especially uncommon signed. See Shilov, Zapiski starogo knizhnika, p. 111. In libraries, KVK and OCLC show complete sets at Harvard, Holy Trinity Seminary, Hoover, and the University of Kansas. Princeton holds a copy of the second pamphlet.

        Archive of Correspondence Related to The Invincibles, an Early and Short-Lived Spinoff or Sub-Group of the Boy Scouts of America

      Mart, Texas, 1916. Near Fine. Approximately 80 typescripts consisting of retained letters, a few Autograph Letters Signed, and a few carbon copies manuscript. Condition is generally very good, but with several letters heavily toned and brittle; about half are two-hole punched. About 90% of the material is from October-December 1914. Norman York from Mart, Texas was the 16-year-old assistant chief of "The Invincibles Interstate Troop of Corresponding Scouts" a Boy Scouts of America spinoff created by George M. Holt, a Scoutmaster in Kansas City, Missouri. The group was a highly structured pen-pal club that boasted members in 40 states and several countries. Each scout was required to write a certain number of letters a month and this archive documents the exceptional amount of work young Norman York put forth to keep things going. He wrote numerous letters monthly, sharing interests, dreams, thoughts about girls, and most of all, the joy and promotion of scouting, all in a hurried and innocent style that often lacked any pretense to punctuation and spelling. In December 1914, he wrote a scout in England: "I know that your country is at war at present and hope them all the success that I can. We are bothers to each other and can not lay down in time of need can we. Old England is going to clean Germanys plow alright and clean it good. My oppinion of this war is that Germany will get licked off the map the entire Empire"Norman took his job seriously, with a fair amount of letters complaining to scouts that they were not fulfilling their duties. The group even had special Boy Scout letterhead created.The Boy Scout never officially recognized the Invincibles despite at least one mention of their existence in a 1914 issue of Boys' Life. Two letters show that the Boy Scout's final ruling likely occurred in early 1916 and there's nothing in the archive that suggests the Invincibles continued past this point.An interesting collection giving voice to the spirit of the early BSA and documenting a mostly forgotten subgroup.

Lawrence by his Friends gives a very good account of Lawrence?s time here, initially rubbing people up the wrong way: producing responses of ?Whoever can this extraordinary little pipsqueak be?? and eliciting ?wonder at who this young man was and of astonishment at his impudence?, and finally getting almost universal respect.This little group, which also includes letters from David Hogarth, Ronald Storrs and Ernest Dowson gives a unique insight into the inner workings of the intelligence community in Cairo, something of a focal point for the more cerebral top-brass of the second world war. The head of the map-making division was W.H. Crosthwaite, and much of the correspondence revolves around him. Material from this period is extremely rare. Of particular note is the manuscript schematic map by Lawrence. a. ALS from Crosthwaite to Logan. 11/9/15. A4 tracing paper. Concerning work on the Ladikya Sheet.?I believe the hill sheet of this is complete as far as possible. If so I think the best plan is to dispatch to Mr. Lawrence to hand over to Binosi [engraver]. I will ask Mr. Lawrence to tell Binosi to come up & see you, if he has any doubts about procedure.?Dowson reports that Logan was (understandably) ?deeply affronted when he was first presented to Lawrence and told that the latter had been charged with general control of the mapwork required by G.H.Q. Logan resented having to take orders from such a boy, and felt that the War Office had acted in accordance with the ineptitude traditionally pertaining to it in burlesque in putting such a youngster in charge of anything? [T. E. Lawrence by His Friends p.137]. b. ALS from Logan to ?R.C.? 12/9/15. Also concerning the Ladikya Sheet: ?I understand Mr. Lawrence has changed his mind about Binosi doing it & thought he would rather have Canjiani [?] do it? although for my part I would rather have Canjiani free for other work.? c. ALS signed in full from Lawrence to Crosthwaite. 12/9/15. Military Intelligence Office, War Office, Cairo official letterhead.?That map of Sinai is good: but some of the names in the heart of the hills want cleaning.Can you do this? . . Then we want 20 copies to start.? Crosthwaite has appended the following, rather telling, note: ?Mr. Logan, At leisure please.?Dowson records that in Lawrence?s first meeting with Crosthwaite he proceeded to ?criticise somewhat severely the system of transliteration of Arabic names into Roman characters that the Survey of Egypt adopted. As Crosthwaite had been closely concerned personally with the establishment of this system and had spent many months in studying the subject and in discussing it with recognised experts, his first impression of Lawrence was one of wonder as to who this young man was and of astonishment at his impudence? [Ibid p.137]. d. ALS from Crosthwaite to Logan. 12/9/15. A4 tracing paper. Continuing the war of opinion over exactly who should engrave the Ladikya Sheet: ?As verbally arranged with Mr. Lawrence this morning, please make necessary corrections& we will then have Binosi up here to make the hill plate . .

        Jüdische Grabstelen fürs Feld

      Herbert Tannenbaum, Mannheim 1916 - Large Quarto. 8pp. Original illustrated cream wraps with black lettering on cover. Brief introduction into design and building of gravestones for graves of Jewish soldiers. Issued in agreement with Rabbis of the armies of the West during W.W.I pointing out that graves of Jewish soldiers may not contain crosses for religious reasons. It provides examples for designs of so-called "Stelen" following the old Jewish tradition of grave markers. Though it is easier and more likely to find wood in the field there is no reason for the marker to lack dignity and stability. In cases when headstones are desired and available the design should also be plain and strictly follow the tradition.The booklet contains instructions on how to build wooden gravestones for soldiers in the field. It covers the crafting of the gravestones and provides detailed guidelines for the inscriptions according to Jewish tradition. Illustrated with technical drawings including scales of gravestone designs by Hermann Esch and Prof. M. v. Hugo. The samples presented are gravestones for M. Cohn, Karl Bär, O. Lippschitz, Elias Oppenheimer and others. Text in German. Wraps age toned with very light wear along edges. Wraps and interior in overall good+ to very good condition.

        WWI Manuscript Journal recording the exploits of HMS Doris in the Dardanelles in April 1915, as recorded by H. J. Bowden, Stoker

      1916. Bowden, a stoker in the British Navy, used this journal, a re-purposed "Day Book of Engineers' Stores," to record his service off the Egyptian, Turkish and Syrian coasts, in the Dardanelles, and off the coast of Bulgaria during the First World War, with near daily entries between August 1, 1914 and March 26, 1916, aboard the HMS Doris. The Imperial War Museum holds a diary of Captain Twigg of the HMS Doris, where it states that their first action was on 25 April 1915 when she bombarded forts around Bulair. "On 26 April, together with HMS Triumph, Doris shelled the area around Gaba Tepe in support of Australian troops."*Bowden's journal adds another perspective to the information from Captain Twigg. He is quite specific about which ships wee involved in the various actions, what kind of shells were used in bombardments and later tells of the drowning death of his brother, who was in the British Army, and the subsequent torpedoing of his ship."April 25th- Trawlers sweep Channell (sic) Doris, Canopus, 11 transports following up behind formed up by the Dartmouth Kennett (?) x we proceeded with Dartmouth to bombard Buliar Lines 5.40am commenced bombarding Forts Napoleon and Sultan x completely demolish them 6.15 directed our fire on trenches x entanglements 7/45 again bombarded forts seaplane went up to reconnoiter (sic) when she returned she reported no sign of guns in either fort but observed Turkish Ships on her way in Dardanelles.

" (p. 18a, b & c)Herbert H. J. Bowden (b. October 1884, Kingskerwell, Kingskerswell, Devonshire, UK, d. 9 Jun 1953, Torbay, Devonshire, UK) was the son of Louitene Hingston (1845-1926) & Charles Bowden (1840- ). He is recorded in the 1891 Census as a 6 year old living with his family in the place of his birth, Kingskerswell, Devon. His wife was possibly Sarah Rosina Treloar. The1911 Census lists a Herbert Bowen, age 31, married, born in Tiverton, Devon, residing in Woolwich (Navy) E Supply Company A S E as a baker. There is also an H. J. Bowen listed in UK, WWI Service Medal and Award Rolls, 1914-1920, 2nd lieutenant, British War Medal and Victory Medal, Lincolnshire Regiment. Herbert H. J. Bowden is listed in UK records as having died 9 June 1953 at Torbay hospital. His will was probated in Torquay, his effects L 3970 10 s. 10d. The HMS Doris was an Eclipse Class Light Cruiser. In August 1914, when Bowden's journal begins, she was part of the 11th Cruiser Squadron, performing trade protection patrols west of Ireland. In November 1914, the Doris was detached from the 11th Cruiser Squadron and sent to Egypt equipped with a seaplane to conduct an aerial reconnaissance of the Turkish positions at Beersheba. In December she was part of the force available to Admiral Peirse for the purpose of disrupting Turkish communications off the Syrian Coast. Then, under Captain Larken, the Doris attacked Turkish forces at Askalon, carried out a reconnaissance of Haifa and Jaffa, then landed a party four miles south of Sidon, cutting the telegraph to Damascus. Captain Larken and the crew of the Doris were active at Alexandretta beginning December 18, dropping a landing party north of the city, cutting both the railway and the telegraph. Bowden's journal records all this in great detail, including the tense standoff with the Turks at Alexandretta, first-hand accounts of raiding parties on shore, shelling enemy trenches, destroying rail lines and stations, fighting enemy submarines, capturing prisoners, sending out seaplanes for reconnaissance missions, landing spies, etc. According to an article by Edward J. Erickson entitled "Capt. Larken and the Turks: The Strategic Impact of the Operations of HMS Doris in Early 1915," [Routledge: 2014], these spying and intelligence gathering activities "were most likely the actual reason for the Doris' operations along the coast in late 1914 and early 1915." Its January 1915 log book remained classified 'confidential' and closed to access until 1966.The Doris saw their first action supporting the ANZAC troops at the Gallipoli Landing April 25th through 27th, 1915. "HMS Doris 1914-1918" has a presence on Facebook, and they were active in recording the action the ship saw for the 100th anniversary of the Landing at Gallipoli. On April 24th, the HMS Doris was involved with a feint off Bulair, but feel frustration that they are not involved in the main attack. Lt. Twigg reports 'There is an enormous amount of wire entanglements & trenches at Bulair. Sent up hydroplane, unmolested... Anxiously await news of main landing, I heard faint guns in early morning!" On late evening 25 April, the crew are "ordered south to join the 2nd Squadron and support the landings at Anzac Cove, where the situation is becoming desperate. On the way, HMS Dartmouth is to head to Gaba Tepe to support the troops ashore there. The rest of the squadron are to enter the Cove, with HMS Doris joining HMS Triumph, and Grant's own HMS Canopus joining HMS Majestic." **In August 1915, the Doris took some 2500 soldiers on board, the majority from the Warwickshires Yeomanry, with orders to deliver them to the Gallipoli Peninsula. In November, they were awaiting orders to fetch troops from Anzac and Suvla. In January 1916, they assisted with the final evacuations from Gallipoli which, Bowden notes tersely "the troops were preparing to leave in the hands of the Turks." The ANZAC troops retreating from Gallipoli escaped largely unharmed, due to a brilliantly conceived plan which disguised their departure with the random firing of guns which lead the Turks to believe their adversaries were present. In fact, the guns were controlled by a water drip system, and the troops had retreated to safety. Bowden and the men of the Doris received their first leave since the war commenced in May 1916. He returned home to Devonport, near Plymouth, for three weeks to see his wife and to re-qualify for work on oil engines. He passed the exam and proceeded back to Mudros on a ship carrying the Admiral "no doubt they knew it by wirewe had no less than 4 Torpedo fired at us during the Journey." He joined the Monitor 19, with orders to proceed to South of Greece submarine hunting. "… proceeded to the little Island called Stavros which was to be our Base to cover the Troops when advancing over the Bulgarian Lines. I had a Brother in the Army there in the Camp so I felt more at home as I used to see him as often as possible and him same but we had to do a Cruise around the Island for to Protect the Armenian and the English people … "While there, he and some friends were teaching his brother and friends to swim. They were ordered to suppress rioting between Turks and Greeks, and he received the news that his brother drowned.Shortly thereafter, the "message come for 2 Stokers to man Submarine Destroyer of course I happened to be one of the unlucky 2We proceed to a to relieve the other boat… we sighted a Submarine we fired and down he went and up come another and give us a torpedo the other side and down we went but thank God we were all saved 15 to the Crew and we where(sic) left in the open Sea for 15 Hours but we where (sic) all in good Spirits we had a good rest on some of the wreckage that was floating we where (sic) waiting to be taken prisoners by the Submarine but no he dipped and got away and left us the Dirty Coward…" Eventually they were saved.

      Lit. Ia. P. Pavlovoi and Tipo-lit Sh. Bussel (F. G. Shilov), Petrograd 1916 - Octavos (22 × 14 and 23.5 × 19.5 cm). Original sewn lithographed self-wrappers; printed on thick laid paper; 16 pp. each. Lithographed text and images throughout. The first pamphlet with the author's gift inscription to the front wrapper. Pre-revolutionary private ink shelfmark; else very good. First two parts of this humorous imitation of an Old Russian manuscript chronicle, about how the German enemy has brought bloodshed and suffering to the Slavic lands, produced in a small print run during the first months of World War I. Both pamphlets contain lithographically reproduced text and satirical images, such as depictions of German women, Kaiser Wilhelm, but also numerous head- and tailpieces, in imitation of Orthodox manuscripts. The author, historian, collector, and publisher Vasilii Ivanovich Uspenskii, is perhaps better known for producing a suite of 103 anti-German popular prints entitled "Pictures of the Russian War with the Germans," which likewise imitated early Russian folkloric style. In some copies, the vignettes and head pieces were colored. Lacking the third issue; the first issue appears to be the second edition ("Vtorym Tipom izdadesia"). Colored copies are occasionally seen in the trade. A scarce example of popular anti-German writing, which draws both on the tradition of the lubok and of the Russian medieval chronicle; especially uncommon signed. See Shilov, Zapiski starogo knizhnika, p. 111. In libraries, KVK and OCLC show complete sets at Harvard, Holy Trinity Seminary, Hoover, and the University of Kansas. Princeton holds a copy of the second pamphlet. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        L'Echo des Tranchees.

      1916 - Journal du 17e Territorial. Roneographed newspaper. Folio. 4pp. Some darkening to lower portion of first page. Verdun, 1 April, Rare. OCLC lists copies only at the BNF and IWM. Printed in an edition of 150 copies, the paper is the usual jumble of jokes, songs, citations and promotions. Dated 1 April 1916, this issue appeared during the second phase of the Battle of Verdun, the longest battle of WWI, in which the 17th participated. It also fought at the Battle of Artois in October 1914. Both battles featured on the regiment's flag. From the outset of hostilities, the French began producing newspapers in the trenches. In part they provided an immediate service as a way to disseminate information and a boost to morale, but they were also a reaction to the national press. The 17th were no different in this respect, the first issue of L'echo des Tranchees was printed on 30 November 1914. These publications were not meant for distribution beyond the trenches themselves, they were also produced by front-line soldiers, rather than officers, and so provide a fascinating insight into the morale and mindset of those soldiers at war. This issue was printed before censorship controls were brought into effect. As a result of mutinies in 1917, General Petain ordered a stricter control of content. L'echo des Tranchees ran until at least May 1917. WWI historian Stephane Audoin-Rouzeau estimates that over 400 separate publications were produced by French soldiers in the trenches.
