Maps by: Cartographic Institute of Freytag & Bernd, Vienna. Printed by: A. Holzhausen. An uncommon first edition of the Great Statistical and Geographical Atlas of Poland, with 32 thematic maps, by a Polish cartographer Eugeniusz Romer was crucial to establishing borders of the Second Polish Republic in 1918. - This is the first edition of the Polish Statistical and Geographical Atlas, published during WWI by a Polish cartographer Eugeniusz Romer (1917-1954). The atlas was a first modern statistical survey of the country and it played a crucial role in establishing new Polish borders after WWI, in 1918. A Polish geographer, cartographer and geopolitician Eugeniusz Miko?aj Romer (1871 - 1954) was born in Lwów (today Lviv, Ukranie) and studied history, geology, geography and meteorology at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Lwów and Halle (Saale). In 1894, Romer finished a doctorate in philosophy at Lwów University, where he became a professor in 1911. In that time he was also a president of Polish Copernicus Society of Naturalists. Before WWI Eugeniusz Romer traveled to Switzerland, to study Alpine glaciers, to Asia, and in 1913 to Alaska, to the Saint Elias Mountains. In 1916, during WWI, while staying in Vienna he started working on the Great Statistical and Geographical Atlas of Poland, which was published the same year. After the war Romer became a member of the Polish delegation at the Paris Peace Conference, 1919, helping to draw the western border of Poland. Two year later, in 1921, he published the second edition of the atlas with new boundaries. Thematic maps, embracing the area of Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic States, illustrate the following subjects: 1. Hypsometry, 2. Geology, 3. Climate, 4. Flora, 5. History, 6. Administration, 7. Population density, 8. Yearly growth of Population, 9. Polish population, 10. Roman-Catholic religion, 11. Jewish population (4 maps on one sheet showing different areas between 1870-1910) 12. Polish population in border areas (4 maps on one sheet), 13. Polish population in Latvia and Little Russia (2 maps on one sheet), 14. Churches, 15. Education (3 maps and a chart on one sheet), 16.

        Wall Street.

      New York 1916 - Photogravure on japan paper, from Camera Work No. 48, annotated on the reverse, image size 13.4 x 16.6 cm., sheet 28.1 x 20 cm, mounted and framed. An iconic image of Wall Street and a turning point in modern photography. Wall Street depicts a scene of everyday life in Manhattan's Financial District. Workers are seen walking past the J.P. Morgan building in New York City on the famous Wall Street, of which the photograph takes its name. The photograph is famous for its reliance on the sharpness and contrast of the shapes and angles, created by the building and the workers, that lead to its abstraction. This photograph is considered to be one of Strand's most famous works and an example of his change from pictorialism to straight photography. Strand moved from the posed to portraying the purity of the subjects. There is no focal point, with the lines converging off of the frame of the image. The financial building take majority of the frame. Emphasis is placed on the strong shapes created by the architecture of the building. The workers are included in the image, but are faceless and are trumped in size by the massive square shapes from the building they walk past. Also, the workers are captured in motion which on film makes them appear blurry. This aesthetic that Strand creates in Wall Street is his break toward the modern. Social change was important to Strand. With Wall Street, he sought to portray a social message. He captured the faceless people next to the looming financial building in order to give a warning. Strand shows "the recently built J.P. Morgan Co. building, whose huge, dark recesses dwarf the passers-by with the imposing powers of uniformity and anonymity."(Ollman, "Art Review: Paul Strand: A Transition, Caught on Film.) The people cannot escape the overwhelming power that this modern establishment will have on their future and the future of America. He warns us to not be the small people that look almost ant-like next to this building that has a massive amount of control over the American economy. The photo, now simply titled "Wall Street", was one of six Paul Strand pictures Stieglitz published in Camera Work. In three of the six pictures, humanity strides out from abstract ideas, and each figure was a study in itself — an irregular item complimented by modular formats that surround it. Another set of eleven Strand photos were published in the magazine's final issue in 1917, and those pictures, overwhelmingly endorsed by Stieglitz as 'brutally direct' made Strand's reputation.

This copy is in a full padded morocco binding, similar to that used on the leather-bound octavo 1916 edition, but considerably plainer than the ornate hand-tooled polished calf one-off designer bindings of the numbered copies of this edition. Not in Dornbusch (but see 204-207 for other editions); Fielding and O'Neill, page 239 (1917 edition only).

Written by A group of seven young women relatives to raise money for the War effort and rented out at a few pence a day to neighbours, friends and relatives.

Please put six penny stamps in the pocket under given name, & send it onto the next address. The money thus made goes to War Funds & the Queens Hospital for Children. B.E. Smythe (editor)". Much of the content is overshadowed by the War, such as the poems "The Fair City" (Dedicated to P-r on his return by a Perthshire Beaden" and"The Ballad of a Diable Bleu a true story by a Chasseur home on leave, & put into verse." The first story, which is the longest at 67 pages is called Robin's Wish, concerns the long awaited Christmas visit of cousin Paul. The story ends "We never saw Cousin Paul again. A year later he was killed in the Great War fighting on the Russian front (I can't spell the name of the place he was killed at)." The rear board has 15 addressed pockets for the stamps. The addresses stretch across Scotland and England, the last addressee being Lady Betty Hay, 74 Eaton Place in London. Also included is a fine album of family photographs for the 1920's onwards. The Smythes were a prosperous Perthshire family. Barbara Smythe remained unmarried and lived on the family estate until the late 1980's.

        Catalogue of the Library at Broomhill, Tunbridge Wells. The Property of Sir David Lionel Salomons, Bt

      Three photographs (two of the library room & one of the collector). 1 p.l., xiii, 948, [2], 949-52, 51 pp. Thick small folio, orig. half-morocco & cloth (lower joint cracked but strong, short crack at head of upper joint), a.e.g. N.p.: 1916. Limited to 37 copies only of this magnificent catalogue; this is copy number 32 printed on Esparto paper, signed by the collector. Born into a family of considerable wealth, Salomons (1851-1925), was a most fascinating man: "From the earliest age Salomons played with clockwork engines, building blocks, and tools. In adolescence he wandered around Clerkenwell and Soho looking into tool shops. At the age of fourteen he befriended a working watchmaker who taught him practical mechanics: he retained a lifelong interest in watchmaking, became a member of the Clockmakers' Company, and published a monograph in 1921 on the French watchmaker Breguet, of whose work he amassed a large collection. After his succession to the baronetcy he installed private workshops, laboratories, and electricity at Broomhill in 1874, and investigated electromotive force and electric conductors in association with Sir Charles Wheatstone. In 1876 he built a waterworks at Broomhill and fitted a telescope to its water-tower. Within a few years he had thousands of tools in his workshop and was constantly devising experiments. He took out patents for railway signalling, electric lamps, current meters, electric circuits, electric magnets, pressure gauges, vacuum tubes, electric torches, and electromotor apparatus. He was one of the founders of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, serving as vice-president and treasurer, but, as a non-professional electrical engineer, he was judged ineligible for its presidency. His textbook, Electric Light Installations, passed through eleven editions during the 1880s and 1890s. Salomons was first chairman of the City of London Electric Lighting Company established in 1891 with an electric-lighting franchise for the City of London and the St Saviour's district of Southwark."-ODNB. He also had an early interest in horseless carriages, the uses of radium in medicine, and aviation. Salomons was also a considerable book collector. He purchased many of the finest illustrated French books from the library of the Earl of Carnarvon (see De Ricci, p. 174). His library was rich in French and English illustrated books and scientific works, especially locomotion (ballooning, railways, automobiles, etc.). This is described as the fourth edition on the limitation page. We know of two earlier catalogues, issued in 1903 and 1909, and one later one, issued in 1919-20. Fresh copy.

        Big Game Fields of America, North and South [SIGNED, WITH DUST JACKET]

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1916. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. Bull, Charles Livingston. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 368 pp. Inscribed by Author(s). First British edition, in the scarce dust jacket, inscribed by the author. An account of big game hunting in both North and South America a century ago, illustrated throughout by vintage black and white photographs. Inscribed by the author to Jack Hegeman, likely John Rogers Hegeman, Sr., President of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company from 1891 until his retirement. It is possible the inscribee was his son, John Rogers Hegeman, Jr. - we acquired the book from the great-grandson of Mr. Hegeman, Jr., so the book has been in the family since it was inscribed allowing the dust jacket to survive all these years. ***DESCRIPTION: Light brown cloth boards with gilt lettering on the spine, brown lettering on the front, a vignette on the front board of the head of a leopard in ivory and brown, the inscription referred to above on the front free endpaper which reads: "To my good friend / Jack Hegeman, / With the compliments / of the author / Daniel J. Singer / July 11 / 18"; frontispiece (in full color) and two other drawings (in black and white) by Charles Livingston Bull, replete with vintage black and white photographs; octavo size (just over 8.5" tall), pagination: (1)-368. The dust jacket is not price-clipped, although the price is not printed on it (it sold for $2.25 when new) is ivory with black lettering on front and spine, the color frontispiece serving also on the front of the jacket as a pastedown in full color, back panel and both flaps are blank. ***CONDITION: Volume is overall in fine condition, with the gilt and the vignette on the front board bright and true, a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and other than the inscription referred to above it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some dustiness to the text block edges and a stray mark or two of foxing, else fine. The scarce dust jacket, unclipped, is near fine with the front pastedown being in perfect condition; there are a few short, closed tears, some sunning to the spine, and minor overall edgewear. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      [Denver]: Privately printed, [1916]., 1916. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Author's inked generic inscription, signed and dated in the year of publication on the half title page. Boards, with cloth spine, 56 pp., frontispiece, map, and 4 additional plates. This rare account was privately printed for family members and was identified by Edward Eberstadt to be "one of 50 copies." William Smedley spent 5 months traveling the Oregon Trail, by ox-team, from Council Bluffs to Salem, Oregon, in the summer of 1862. Smedley's day-by-day diary is recorded here, with considerable detail. An interesting and rare work. Mintz 427 says "Smedley's interesting day-by-day diary tells of still another instance where the author, quite sickly during his lifetime, develops into a robust pioneer once on the trail. His story of traveling overland to Oregon with a wagon, and usually only one companion, is a strong argument for those who lean toward the belief that small parties fared the best. His two worst enemies were mosquitoes and Indians." Very good copy.

        Mohammedan "Narratives of the Prophets" Covering the Period from Zacharias to Paul. Turki Text with English Translation.

      [Tihwafu, Sinkiang: the editor], [1916]. 4to. Original stab-sewn Chinese-style wrappers; pp. [iv (i: blank; ii: title; iii-iv: introduction)], [1-4], 5-65, [1 (blank)], parallel Turki and English text mimeographed on the rectos only of concertina-folded sheets; wrappers slightly rubbed and chipped at edges, very light even browning, but a very good copy of a rare and fragile work. First and only edition, one of 100 copies. The traveller-missionary George Hunter travelled to China in 1889 under the auspices of the China Inland Mission, remaining there (with the exception of one visit to his native Scotland) until his death. During this time he travelled widely throughout China and Central Asia, becoming well-versed in many of the languages of the region. The present work was undertaken in the course of his studies of Turki, and is a translation of a Turki manuscript of the Qissas al-anbiya, which 'contained seventy-one articles dealing with the creation, the lives of the prophets, and ended with an account of the death of Mohammet and incidents regarding his disciples' (M. Cable and F. French George Hunter (London: 1948), p. 58). From this, Hunter 'selected for our translation the New Testament period as we thought this would be the most interesting and useful for our readers' (p. [iii]). Hunter states in his introduction, 'As to the binding and printing it was my desire to see the book in a more presentable form, but being in a very remote part of the earth, and without a printing press, the best we could do was to take 100 copies off a small mimeograph, and use the Chinese style of binding. We ask our readers to bear with us if a little difficult to decipher under the circumstances it is the best we can do' (p. [iv]). The work was printed on 'coarse paper [which] was made from local material, often from the leaves of the desert iris' (Cable and French, p. 59), and it seems likely that only a small portion of the 100 copies survive, given the fragile nature of the volume and the circumstances of its production and publication. Of those that survive, 14 can be located in institutional libraries (BL, NLS, SOAS, Durham, Oxford, and Cambridge (3), BSB, LOC, Cleveland Public Library, Mount Holyoke College, University of California, Berkeley, and University of Washington), and the work is rare on the market; Anglo-American auction records only record two copies at auction since 1975. Cordier, Sinica, col. 4272.

        Die willkürlich bewegbare künstliche Hand. Eine Anleitung für Chirurgen und Techniker. Mit anatomischen Beiträgen von G.Ruge und W. Felix und unter Mitwirkung von A.Stadler.

      Berlin, Julius Springer, 1916, 8, VI, 143, (1) pp., 104 Textfiguren, original Halblleinenband frisches Exemplar. DIE WILLKÜRLICH BEWEGBARE HANDPROTHESE! ERSTE AUSGABE der berühmten, bahnbrechenden Arbeit. Angeregt durch Kriegsinvalidität forschte Sauerbruch gemeinsam mit dem Züricher Prof. Stodola an Handprothesen. 1915 unternahm Sauerbruch in Greifswald die erste Operation, in der die am Stumpf verbliebenen Muskeln des Patienten nach dem Eingriff mit einer bereits konstruierten Hand verband. Diese Operation erbrachte den Beweis, daß aus dem vorhandenen Muskeln gebildete Kraftquelle die Bewegung der Prothesenfinger ermöglichte. Infolge der damalingen Kriegsereignisse hatte diese Schrift nicht die nötige, ihr zukommende Beachtung gefunden und ist deshalb so selten. Von besonderem Interesse ist die kurze Einführung in die Geschichte der künstlichen Hand.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

      New York B. W. Huebsch 1916 - First Edition, first issue with date in Roman numerals on title-page and 1916 on Copyright page, small contemporary bookseller's label to rear inner board, small ownership name to front free endpaper, publisher's blue cloth, title blind-stamped to front cover, gilt to spine, a little rubbed on spine ends and corners, otherwise an near-fine example, preserved in leather-entry slip-case. Following the novel's serialisation in The Egoist in the preceding year, British publishers were hesitant to take it on for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws therefore this edition precedes the first English one by two months and even then, the latter was published using the American sheets in February 1917. "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'." [and] ' 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, p. 33 Slocum and Cahoon A12; Connolly 26.

        Ekstrennyi poeszd Lit. A.

      [Kiev?, Lithographer of the South Western Railway], 1916. Bifolium (c. 31 x 19.5 cm), pp. [4], i.e. title, lithographic map in colour, colour-lithographic illustration with coat-of arms including printing in gold, and additional hand-colouring, last page blank; very well preserved. The South Western Railway connected Kiev with the Russo-Habsburg border at Gretsan. Eastern Ukraine had been rather stable and under Russian control during the First World War, until 1917. This beautiful and ephemeral publication celebrates the emergency train, a tram with the red cross symbol at the front. The lithograph shows this train approaching military personnel and civilians gathering at the evakuatsionnyi punkt (evacuation point) outside a train station. We were not able to find out what exact event was commemorated with this lavish and beautifully designed ephemeral publication.

        Ausblick". Zwei junge Frauen im Vordergrund rechts blicken von erhöhtem Standpunkt über eine von bewachsenen Berghängen gesäumte Flußschleife, von links ragt ein großer Baum in Bild.

      - Farbholzschnitt in Schwarz, Grün, Blau und Rosa, 1916, auf Japan-Bütten, signiert, betitelt und als „Original-Holzschnitt Handdruck" bezeichnet. Darstellungsgröße 37,3:34 cm, Blattgröße 41,5:37,7 cm. – Verso an den Ecken Papierreste alter Montierung, sonst tadellos und frisch. Literatur: Merx 271F.- Selten! Thiemann war zunächst nach einer entsprechenden Ausbildung als Kaufmann tätig. Doch nach zehn Jahren wechselte er an die Prager Kunstakademie und studierte bei Franz Thiele (1868-1945), der seine Begabung für die Landschaftsmalerei erkannte. Durch seinen Studienfreund Walter Klemm (1883-1957), der wie er aus Karlsbad stammte, wurde er 1905-06 in der Technik des Farbholzschnitts angeleitet und entwickelte schnell seinen eigenen Stil. Beide Künstler zogen 1908 nach Dachau, wo Thiemann viele Motive für den Farbholzschnitt fand. Nach Auflösung der Ateliergemeinschaft kam es bald zum Abbruch der Verbindung. Thiemann wurde 1910 Mitglied der Wiener Sezession und des Deutschen Künstlerbundes Weimar und war Mitbegründer und langjähriges Vorstandsmitglied der Künstlervereinigung Dachau. Das Holzschneiden behielt er bis zu seinem Tode bei und hinterließ ein umfangreiches künstlerisches Werk. Seine größte Leistung sind jedoch seine Holz- und Farbholzschnitte.
