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a little marked, internally rather clean and fresh; provenance: from a Estonian library, with stamps on title, withdrawn.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

        Photo Album]: New England Women, Including Librarians

      Massachusetts 1916 - Oblong octavo. Measuring 5.5" x 7". Textured leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains a total of 151 images (90 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs and 61 cyanotype prints), measuring between 1" x 1" and 3.5" x 4.5". Rubbing on the boards else very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by Florence. M. Osborne from Wellesley, Massachusetts between 1907 and 1916. The album documents home life as well as travel throughout the area and including Canada. A sizable number of the early photos are cyanotypes that depict the natural beauties of New England such as ponds, beaches, and gardens, as well as landmarks and town buildings. There are 24 photos from a trip to Quebec showing horse drawn carriages, cobblestone roads, artistic street views, and photos of Montmorency Falls. A trip to Quincy, Massachusetts shows photos of the monument to Abigail Adams Cairn, as well as Penn's Hill and a water tower. A section of the album entitled "autumn" shows portraits of the family posing around the house in fancy dress, including a photo of Osborne dressed in a large, fashionable hat. There are also photos of various rooms in the Wellesley Free Library, which was of interest to the Osborne family, notable Florence's father Weston W. Osborne who was a contributor to the library's acquisition funds. The album switches to sepia tone and black and white photos around 1909 starting with a hike up Point Allerton Hill. The album continues with visits to more New England points of interest including Nahant, where they photographed Senator Lodge's house. Two photos of a group of young women are captioned, "Junior members of Lynn Public library staff," and are accompanied by two slips of paper listing each woman's name. The album goes on to show the library's reading room and the stairway to the main floor. The final 30 photos are laid in (likely to be mounted and captioned at a later time) and show women around the house, decorated Christmas tables, and with family pets.An interesting accumulation of images depicting Wellesley, Massachusetts and the surround area with a generous selection of cyanotypes.

        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. .

        Brabibor Debeljkovic (JUI6039)

      - Branibor Debeljkovic né en 1916 à Pristina, Serbie.

Branibor Debeljkovic est mort en 2003, à Montréal, ou il s?était retiré chez son fils.

        Diary account of the Dardanelles campaign.

      1916 - Army Book 136. Manuscript in pencil. 8vo. Original linen covered printed boards. 23 September 1915 - 1 April Stevenson departed Liverpool for the Dardanelles on HMT 2810, which was the Olympic sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic. Passing Gibralter they soon came across a life boat full of French sailors, whose ship had been sunk by a German submarine. They took the crew on board and immediately commenced pursuit of the enemy submarine: ?About 4pm hostile submarine sighted. The siren was blown several times and was the most eerie and dismal sound we ever heard. It seemed almost as though the ship was uttering a cry of despair. Gun on fore suddenly fired & boat swung right round almost in our lengthand heeled right over so sudden was the turn Gunner on aft gun then fired and submarine made off when we were right round we were sull speed ahead up med. again so submarine could have caught us. Very noticeable no excitement but considerable curiosity. It is believed a torpedo had been fired but missed as boat swung round.? There's a detailed description of Lemnos, which Churchill felt was an ideal launching site for an attack on the Dardanelles, and much speculation among the men over their final destination. On October 7, they disembarked on W beach ?along a 'Pier' which consisted of several boats joined up? and soon settled into trenches. Stevenson's experience of trench warfare is dreadfully monotonous and many of the entries report the ongoing movements of Turkish troops, shelling attacks, moving between trenches, the occasional bath in the ocean. He regularly reports the death and injuries of fellow soldiers, often describing the manner of their death ?shot while on sentry?, ?killed while on a fatigue party . heavily shelled by shrapnel?, ?badly wounded by premature burst of catapult bomb? and records his thoughts on them: ?His loss to the Regiment as a soldier was bad enough & his equal as a pianist will never be found again.? and ?he was a good chap full of life and go and will be sadly missed.? There are lighter moments too - ?Important event occured tonight. 1st issue of rum. It's not the quantity but the quality. Gee but it's good.? ?No uncommon sight to see dead lying about & feel hands protruding from side of trenches . The gruesomeness gradually wore off as we became war stained. We are getting hardened already. The brute in man is easily discernible on service the callousness of individuals being very pronounced. Suppose squeamishness is not good for fighting.? He also notes that some of the men were beginning to suffer from dysentery and lice and provides brief, though detailed, descriptions of shelling attacks on either side - noting the (in)accuracy of their artillery. The diary concludes with an offhand comment that sums up so much of what we know now about the Great War, ?Passed a regiment who said they were straight out of England. Poor devils don't know what they are in for.? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

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.

One of these photos shows the building of a bridge across Elbe by German soldiers. Another photo shows them working at a switchboard as part of the early signal corps. Civilians are seen throughout the album including Sudeten Germans also known as the "Bohemian Germans" who would later become part of Czechoslovakia. There are a few women represented in the photos, one shows two officers entertaining dates, another is a small photo of a nurse in full uniform.

        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]

      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.
