      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wrappers a little marked, internally rather clean and fresh; provenance: from a Estonian library, with stamps on title, withdrawn.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.

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."

      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. .

Rudmose-Brown and Royal Geographical Society to recto of front-free endpaper. xx, 224pp. London: Smith, Elder & Co., Very attractive copy of this rare book, the binding of which is very often badly faded and rubbed. With the characteristic ex-libris stamp of the noted polar veteran R.N. Rudmose-Brown on the front free endpaper, along with that of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. Robert Neal Rudmose-Brown (1879-1957), trained in biology before taking a post as assistant to the Professor of Botany at University College, Dundee. In 1902 he sailed as naturalist on board the Scotia, a converted Norwegian whaler, with the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition, which surveyed the unexplored Antarctic seas. Doorly joined the crew of the Morning as third officer following the intervention of Edward Evans with whom he had gone to sea as a cadet on the training ship Worcester. The Morning under the command of Capt. Colbeck, carried out the successful Relief Expedition to Scott's 1902-1904 Discovery Expedition. On their return Evans was encouraged by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to publish an account of the voyage, however having asked Doorly to join him in this venture other commitments prevented him from beginning the project, leaving Doorly to publish his own work some ten years later.

        CROQUIS D'AVIATION EN MACÉDOINE. Dessins, Croquis & Aquarelles par.

      Paris, Devambez. - S.d., in-f° oblong (41 x 32 cm), 4ff, 28 planches, sous porte-f° pleine percaline verte d'éditeur, titré et orné, à rabats et à liens. Album de 32 dessins en couleurs (présentés sur 28 planches) tirés en lithographie. Tirage limité à 285 ex. Celui-ci 1/250 sur vélin numéroté et signé. Il est ENRICHI d'UN GRAND DESSIN ORIGINAL au crayon, à l'encre et à l'aquarelle, correspondant à la planche légendée « Le vent du Vardar », monogrammé et placé sous passe-partout de papier japon. On joint une épreuve supplémentaire de la page de titre, tirée sur japon. Scènes de la vie d'une escadrille de l'Armée d'Orient à Samli pendant la Première Guerre mondiale. La plupart de ces dessins sont datés de 1916, avec le plus souvent l'indication de lieu Samli ou Thasos. L'artiste a saisi la vie ordinaire de l'escadrille, installant son campement, observant l'ennemi, au décollage (« essence. contact ! »), préparant le terrain d'atterrissage, « dans le coton » (un bombardement), observant le départ d'un aéroplane, son atterrissage, ses vols en rase-mottes ou son capotage, décrivant le quotidien des militaires (entre cafard et culture de salades) et aussi la population locale, tantôt indifférente, tantôt étonnée. L'artiste traite tout cela d'un ton souvent léger et parfois drôle. Dessinateur humoristique, René Préjelan (1877-1968), fut un des créateurs de l'image de la « petite femme de Paris ». Il a d'ailleurs été redécouvert récemment à la faveur de la « pinupmania », car « il croquait avec talent les femmes des Années Folles. » Il collabora à La Caricature, Fantasio, Le Rire, La Baîonnette, Fémina et La Vie parisienne. En 1905, il créa une B.D., « Jo et Josette », publiée par Qui lit rit. Il exposa au Salon des Humoristes et Les Maîtres humoristes lui consacrèrent leur numéro (2e série, n°3) en 1908. Il est l'auteur de La Légende de Béquinette (1902), de L'Amour en dentelles (1903), de Souvenirs d'un fusil de chasse (1949) et de Tableaux de chasse (1952). S'il avait le trait et l'esprit vifs, il avait aussi la réputation d'être un « fusil fameux » (L'Officiel de la mode, 1952) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Edmund Dulac's Fairy-Book: Fairy Tales of the Allied Nations

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1916. Signed limited edition of Edmund Dulac's Fairy Book. One of 350 numbered copies, out-of-series. Quarto, original creme cloth, gilt-pictorial, decorated and lettered. With 15 plates tipped in bordered gold. In very good condition with light rubbing and wear. Edmund Dulac was a French-born, British naturalized magazine illustrator and book illustrator. Born in Toulouse he studied law but later turned to the study of art the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He moved to London early in the 20th century and in 1905 received his first commission to illustrate the novels of the Bronte Sisters. During World War I, Dulac produced relief books and when after the war the deluxe children's book market shrank he turned to magazine illustrations among other ventures. He designed banknotes during World War II and postage stamps, most notably those that heralded the beginning of Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

      Portland, Maine: Thomas B. Mosher, 1916. Third Edition. ONE OF 950 COPIES n. This is a pleasing private press edition of the most famous poem of the English Decadents, offered here in a fetching contemporary binding. Dowson (1867-1900) was writing about his unrequited love for a waitress with the far more prosaic name Adelaide (Missie) Foltinowicz. He chose a name from Horace's "Odes" and titled the work "Non Sum Qualis Eram Bonae Sub Regno Cynarae" ("I am not such as I was under the spell of sweet Cynara"). As Day notes, "To multitudes of the young, the refrain 'I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion' was a catchphrase of cynical nonchalance; but the work is really a lament on the incapacity to love truly." Blumenthal says that Thomas Bird Mosher (1852-1923) "is the first American to have established and sustained a program . . . of splendid literary output in consistently felicitous typographic form." The books he produced between 1891 and 1923 "were bought by thousands of literate men and women whose pleasure in reading was enhanced by fine paper, good workmanship, and an unassuming and quiet typographic elegance." A. Edward Newton said that Mosher "has produced not a few, but hundreds of books which are as nearly faultless as books can be." Mosher was also a flagrant pirate of the work of European (especially British) authors unprotected by copyright laws, though a number of his victims were grateful for the exposure to American audiences that his editions created. The charming binding--signed by the unknown "Gaz"--makes a lovely package for this fine press item.. 181 x 111 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 3/8"). vii, [i], 36 pp., [2] leaves. Third Edition. ONE OF 950 COPIES. Attractive contemporary dark brown morocco by "G A Z" (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in), covers diapered with a plain rule, each diamond-shaped compartment with a central fleur-de-lys and gilt dots at the corners, raised bands, spine panels with small floral sprig in gilt and onlaid red morocco, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Printer's device in red on title page and in colophon, woodcut headpieces and foliated initials. Front flyleaf with ink inscription "From Murray to Aimee[?]" and with ink ownership signature of Georgia Lester Hexter. Bishop 78.2. Spine a richer brown than boards, a hint of fading to covers, occasional trivial foxing, but an excellent copy, the text clean and fresh, and the binding lustrous and unworn. This is a pleasing private press edition of the most famous poem of the English Decadents, offered here in a fetching contemporary binding.

        The Vulgate Version of the Arthurian Romances Edited from Manuscripts in the British Museum

      Washington: The Carnegie Institution of Washington, 1909-1916. Eight folio volumes bound in stiff textured and printed wraps as issued. One volume has an unsightly dampstain on the upper left corner of the upper board (not affecting the text), else this is a fine set, and largely unopened. Volume VII still has the laid in notice, dated 1913, apologizing for a lack of index due to Sommer's poor health. The index was indeed issued at a later date (1916) and is included. In spite of the one fault with volume IV, this is a splendid set and seldom found in such nice condition. Contents include: I. Lestoire del Saint Graal; II: Lestoire de Merlin; III, IV, V: Le Livre de Lancelot del Lac; VI: Les Aventures ou La Queste del Saint Graal; Le Mort de Le Roi Artus; VII: Supplement" Le Livre d'Artus, with Glossary; VIII: Index to Volumes I-VII. A monumental undertaking, in Arthuriana. In the language of the original manuscripts (mainly French) with notes and comentary in English. The 13th century Vulgate Cycle (also called the Lancelot-Grail Cycle and the Pseudo-Map Cycle) is considered a major literature watershed marking the abandonment of verse for prose in the evolution of Arthurian material. (Note: Extra shipping will be necessary for this set owing to its size and weight.). Near fine.

        The Clan of Munes

      Charles Scribener's Sons 1916 - Good/Lacks DJ. Blue cloth, oblong shape, large "mune" on front board. Page 16 is loose and laid in, foxing to half-title page, some wear to front board. Unusual and uncommon book. Waugh was a painter active around the turn-of-the-century, known for his paintings of the ocean. He spent two years working on this Munes fable. The Munes, troll-like creatures, were based on ancient spruce stumps he saw on an island of the coast of Maine. The book did not sell well partially because it came out right before WWI and this book for children has rather nightmarish illustrations. Profusely illustrated with seven color and 20 B&W illustrations. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Poems.

      Dublin: The Talbot Press, 1916 - Octavo. Original tan cloth-backed grey paper boards, titles to front cover and paper label to spine in red, top edge green, brown coated endpapers. Slight wear to tips of bottom fore corners of boards, occasional faint foxing; an excellent copy. Portrait frontispiece from memory by Grace Plunkett. First edition, first impression, published posthumously by Plunkett's sister Geraldine in June 1916. The collection proved so popular it ran to three editions within the year. Joseph Plunkett was executed by firing squad on 4 May 1916 for his role in the 1916 Easter Rising; he married his fiancée, artist and fellow nationalist Grace Gifford, the evening before his execution in the jail chapel, "which did much to ignite public sympathy for the rising". This collection of devoutly Catholic poems includes "I see his blood upon the rose", which has become a standard text in Irish schools. This addition with a Gaelic inscription on the front free endpaper, and a Catholic prayer inscribed to"Pappy" laid in. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Tl. stärker berieben, papierbed. durchgeh. stärker gebräunt, ges. Buchblock eselsohrig, letztes Bl. Mit unterlegtem Einriss.

S. schuf das (unvollendet gebliebene) Oratorium für Soli, Chöre und Orchester in den Jahren 1916 bis 1917 nach einer eigenen Dichtung. - Die Signaturen entstanden wahrscheinlich nach einer Lesung des Jakobsleiter-Textes durch Wilhelm Klitsch am 21. Mai 1921, einer der letzten Veranstaltungen des Vereins für musikalische Privataufführungen (den Schönberg im November 1918 gegründet hatte, der seine Konzerttätigkeit aber aufgrund finanzieller Schwierigkeiten 1921 wieder einstellen musste). Alban Berg schrieb nach der Aufführung: "Jakobsleiter war herrlich. Klitsch hat wirklich unerhörtes geleistet und Fähigkeiten gezeigt, deren ich ihn nie für fähig hielt. ...Besuch war sehr schlecht, und Schönberg sehr deprimiert darüber."
