        The Silver Spoon

      New York: Moffat, Yard. 1916. First. First edition. Publisher's dummy, printing the preliminary matter and the first few pages, with all other pages blank, near fine, with remnants of the dustwrapper laid in. Although not signed, Reginald Wright Kauffman's own copy with a single pencil correction in the text. Neither OCLC or the Library of Congress record copies of this title, and we are tempted to conjecture that it was never published. From a large collection of books we recently purchased from his library. Kauffman was born and lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, although he also maintained homes in Switzerland and Bath, Maine. After graduating from Harvard in 1900, he wrote dozens of stories, mysteries, children's books, and non-fiction titles. He was the editor of the Bangor, Maine Daily News from 1941-1947. His novel The House of Bondage was widely praised, specifically by Emma Goldman, as the first serious attempt to explore the problem of women and prostitution. .

        Spectra: A Book of Poetic Experiments

      NY: Mitchell Kennerley. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1916. First Printing. Hard Cover. Inscribed by Emanuel Morgan on the ffep. One of only 660 published. Publisher's light gray paper covered boards with black lettering and decoration on covers, black lettering on spine. Published by the American poets Arthur Davidson Ficke and Witter Bynner under the pseudonyms of Anne Knish and Emanuel Morgan. Irritated by such new poetic schools as the Imagists, the Futurists, and the Vorticists, Bynner invented the spoof school of "Spectrism" and Ficke joined him in the hoax. They concocted a batch of Spectrist poems (with the help of ten bottles of scotch), Bynner writing as Emanuel Morgan and Fiske as Anne Knish. Kennerley, in on the hoax, published the book in the fall of 1916. Ficke designed the cover and, as Anne Knish, wrote a solemn (and delightful) Introduction. They invented biographies for the Morgan and Knish, and the book was praised by such critics as Edgar Lee Masters, John Gould Fletcher, Eunice Tietjiens, Alfred Kreymborg, and in Reedy's Mirror. Additional poems were published in Poetry, Reedy's Mirror, and The Little Review. After the hoax was exposed in April of 1918, the critics retaliated by insisting that the Spectra poems were better than anything written by Bynner or Ficke. They set out to satirize the high seriousness of "Imagism," "futurism," and the pretensions of literary movements in general, but the hoax was taken seriously by the public, the press, and more than a few poets. This is a presentation copy inscribed on the front blank leaf in Bynner's hand "For Ladd Haystead / these laughs and others / from / Emanuel Morgan / Santa Fe / Fiesta Time 1926." . Head and heel of spine are rubbed and slightly chipped, light wear to covers and tips, a couple of faint spots on front cover near bottom edge, pencil notation by former owner about edition on rep, else unmarked, square and clean. VERY GOOD. . 12mo 7" - 7½" tall. xii, 66 pp. Signed by Author .

By 1900 he had emerged as a leading illustrator and was constantly commissioned by publishers.

The etchings and lithographs he made of French military life within the war zones provide an important and lasting record of these momentous times” (Connie Peters).

        BIOLOGIE DER ETHIK [WARMLY INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO ISRAEL ZANGWILL]

      Leipzig : B. Elischer, 1916 - 1st Edition. Original Boards. 8vo. 224 pages ; 20 cm. In German. Title translates into English as, "Biology of Ethics. " This copy is inscribed by Nordau to Israel Zangwill in August 1922 on the first page, "to my (dear) friend Israel Zangwill, (fondly) yours, M. Nordau. Paris August 19th 1922." Zangill, Nordau, and Herzl were chums; a recent article on Zangwill in the Times of Israel noted that "Zangwill made the jump into journalism and at the same time began his involvement with Jewish emancipation. He met and became fast friends with his fellow writers, Theodor Herzl and Max Nordau, even hosting Herzl in London at the turn of the century" (August 28, 2015) . Max Nordau (1849-1923) was a co-founder of the World Zionist Organization. He was a political Zionist, not a cultural or religious Zionist, having ceased being an observant Jew at eighteen, instead becoming a "militant naturalist and evolutionist, " and making his fame with Die Conventionellen Luegen der Kulturmenschheit, first published in 1883. Also at eighteen, he started his career in journalism, on the staff of the Pester Lloyd. While condemning modern culture and politics, the situation of the Jewish people was never far from Nordau's mind. He met Theodor Herzl in 1982, and soon after began discussing the possibility of a Jewish state with him. He was vice president of the First through Sixth Zionist Congresses, and president of the Seventh through Tenth. (EJ, 2007) "Zangwill was a British author at the forefront of cultural Zionism during the 19th century, he was a close associate of Theodor Herzl. He later rejected the search for a Jewish homeland and became the prime thinker behind the territorial movement. " (Wikipeida, 2016) SUBJECTS: Ethics. Evolutionary. Some browning. Smudges to the words "dear" and "fondly" in the inscription. Oveall about very good condition. (SPEC-42-25) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A most interesting book, partly scientific, partly lyrical (the author, a distinguished physician, includes samples of his poetry) which moves from a discussion of early angling books, through the characteristics of the ideal angler, to the discovery of a new species of trout at Lake Sunapee, NH, and from there to the ancestors and lines of evolution of the Salmonid race. A rare and sought-after work, and the first book published by The Angler's Club of New York With 10-line inscription to J.S. Judge on flyleaf, beginning, "To the Fisher who baskets the whim whams & whacks/ Of our highest grade imbecile income tax/ So patient, so Knowing, so wise & so straight, / I send, with my best, this package of bait./ But whether you angle for taxes or fish ..."

        Bulletin de la Société des Etudes Indo-Chinoises de Saigon, années 1911-1914,

      Saigon, imprimerie Rey, puis imprimerie Ardin, puis imprimerie Portail, 1911-1916, - 7 tomes reliés en 2 volumes in-8 de 51, 133, 133, 77 pp. et de 121, 87 et 151 pp., illustré de quelques planches hors texte et 1 carte dépliante en couleurs, reliures papier modernes, dos lisses ornés de filets dorés, pièces de titre, toute les couvertures conservées. L'année 1914 fut publiée en un seul tome, pour les raisons que l'on devine. La parution de ce bulletin, débutée en 1883, fut très irrégulière, variant de 1 à 4 numéros par an, et recourant à de multiples imprimeurs. Nombreux articles en tous genres, chansons et contes, parmi lesquels nous retiendrons par exemple: Mémoire laissé à la postérité comme expression d'adieux par Mai-Than-Công, Le nouveau Kouang-Toung (86 pp.), Trois petits livres traduits du cambodgien en français par Adhémar Leclère, De Saigon au Tonkin par la rivière de Canton (G. Noll - 86 pp.), Monographie de la province de Stung-Treng, Les quatres pattes du chat, conte cambodgien, La canne annamite bambou, Monographie de la province de Kompong Chhnang, etc. Ensemble parfaitement préservé malgé la médiocrité du papier. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
