        Eigenh. Postkarte mit math. Berechnungen u. U.

      Leiden, [12. II. 1916]. - 2 SS. (Qu.-)8vo. Mit eh. Adresse und wiederholtem Namenszug im Absender. An den Mathematiker David Hilbert in Göttingen: "Empfangen Sie meinen innigen Dank für die Übersendung Ihrer Abhandlung. - Herr Lorentz und wir alle anderen hab[en] uns in der letzten Zeit hier sehr mit der neuesten Einsteinschen Theorie beschäftigt. Dadurch bin ich darauf vorbereitet um mit wahrer Ergriffenheit Ihre Arbeit zu lesen. - Momentan bin ich äußerst ungeduldig Ihren Beweis für Theorem I kennen zu lernen. Denn ich habe mich wochenlang vergeblich bemüht festzustellen ob die 'Erhaltungsgleichungen des materiellen Tensors' [folgt die Gleichung] aus den (neuen) Einstein'schen Gravitationsgleich. [folgen diese] folgen oder nicht. Ihr Theorem I beantwortet nun die Frage bejahend [.]". - Gelocht, geringf. Buchstabenverlust wie oben ergänzt, sonst tadellos.

        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.

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.

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.

        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.

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.

      Moscow, [Sazonov] for Ministerstvo Zemledeliia, Otdel Zemelnyck Uluchshenii, 1916. Large 8vo. Original purple printed wrappers; pp. xii, 344, sketch map, diagrams and tables in the text, numerous plates after photographs; wrappers a little marked, internally rather clean and fresh; provenance: from a Estonian library, with stamps on title, withdrawn. Extremely rare report of an expedition to the Amu-Darya Basin and the Khiva Oasis in Kyrgystan, undertaken in 1914 on behalf of the Ministry for Agriculture with the aim to understand the hydrological problems of the region. Once the scientists were there, they however paid attention to the ethnography, economy, and culture of the people. Another aspect of this expedition was the attempt consolidate Russian influence in the region, economic prospects, trade with China and India, as well as what we now would call ecology. And indeed, modern Kyrgystan faces some of the worst ecological problems of the world. We were not able to locate any other copy commercially or institutionally.

        Autograph letter signed

      two pages 31 January 1916, London - To Gordon Bottomley on the subject of a play he has sent to Fry: " . . . though much in the actual texture is unsympathetic to me, I did feel that something came through - the character of Gruach and the scenic quality of the corpse washer-woman. When I say the texture is unsympathetic I mean that it has the literary quality which I personally (and probably quite wrongly) dislike in all modern English poetry. I think it's a real disaster that we have a prose and a poetic diction." Ouch! In excellent condition.

        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. 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.

        The Western Front. Drawings.

      London: Published by authority of the War Office from the Offices of "Country Life," Ltd.,, November 1916 - October 1917. With an introduction by General Sir Douglas Haig. 10 volumes, small quarto. Original illustrated wrappers. With the illustrated dust jackets. Housed in a black flat-back cloth box. 20 plates (some in colour) to each volume, with an additional vignette in the text in each. A superb set, all sound, clean and fresh with only a few small nicks and marks around the edges of the books, the dust jackets having themselves received only fairly minor dust soiling, some fore-edges a little marked, and some nicks and tears around the edges - the only exception being part 8, which is somewhat spotted, and the a few bumped ends with commensurate chipping to jacket. Nonetheless a remarkable survival, excellent condition overall. First edition, complete as published in the original monthly parts, and all with the rare dust jackets, of Muirhead Bone's Western Front series, which contains the first iterations of his over 200 war images, selections from which were then reproduced in separate "deluxe" portfolios like the War Drawings. These parts issues were afterwards bound up into two volumes, so to have a set complete in parts as issued, let alone in such excellent condition (not to mention the rare jackets), is very uncommon indeed. In 1916 William Rothenstein, a friend of Bone and a fellow member of the Society of Twelve, proposed that an artist should be sent to the front to record the War, Bone was chosen for the task. He arrived in August, 1916 at the height of the Somme Offensive and toured the Southern battle-fields working rapidly in various media - pencil, pen, charcoal and chalk - sending back over 150 finished drawings by October. "He recorded mostly life behind the lines illustrating the settings for war rather than battle scenes – the work of the medical services, encampments, soldiers of duty, soldiers marching, landscapes and ruined towns... The detail and accuracy of Bone's drawings provided an authentic, eyewitness record of the immense logistic efforts of the Somme, one that proved immensely popular and resulted in more artists being commissioned."

        [Broadside]: Souvenir In Affectionate Remembrance of Field Marshall Rt. Hon. Earl Kitchener, His Staff, Captain, and Crew, Who lost their lives on H.M.S. Hampshire, June 5th, 1916... Memorial Service at St. Paul's Cathederal on Tuesday June 13th 1916.

      London: Printer, Burgess. 1916. Souvenir broadside or napkin. Approximately 13.75" x 14". Printed in black, purple, and green on thin Japanese paper or tissue. Contemporarily mounted on salmon-colored cardstock. Light bleed through and stains from glue used in mounting, near fine. A commemoration of the death of Kitchener, the hero of many wars, but of particular importance for his extraordinary effort in building up the English military in WWI. Lists the dead on Kitchener's staff, and provides his military resume. Clumsily printed on thin material and often stored folded, souvenir napkins survive to some degree, but seldom in nice condition. We acquired a few napkins where the owner had the forethought to mount them, probably almost immediately. .
