        LA DIANA. Nuova rassegna mensile.

      Napoli,, 1916.. In-8 gr., mz. tela coeva, conserv. brossure orig., pp. 216. Il volume raccoglie l'annata completa del 1916 (Anno II) - composta da 12 numeri in 10 fascicoli - di questa importante rivista letteraria. Ben conservato. La rivista, diretta da Fiorina Centi e poi da Gherardo Marone, uscì a Napoli nel gennaio 1915 e fu pubblicata fino al marzo 1917. Nel n. 11/12 del 1916 una nota avvertiva che il “Comitato di Redazione avrebbe diretto la rivista per tutto il periodo della guerra avendo indistintamente tutti i suoi collaboratori soldati e perciò distratti da più immediate cure” e sarebbe uscito “in numeri doppi a date non prestabilite". Era il penultimo fascicolo, prima della sospensione nel marzo 1917. Della rivista il Marone fu il principale animatore; vi firmò parecchi interventi volti a definire la linea culturale del periodico, che si caratterizzava tra l'altro per la volontà di sprovincializzare la cultura italiana e per una matrice nettamente antidannunziana. Un suo articolo intitolato “La barra”, pubblicato nel primo fascicolo, sanciva la contiguità della "Diana" con il movimento futurista, ma non senza ambiguità; caratteristica della rivista, in realtà, fu sin da subito un certo eclettismo, che permise la presenza nelle sue pagine di intellettuali anche molto lontani tra loro. Punto di forza della "Diana" era in effetti l'ampia e prestigiosa rosa di collaboratori, tra cui figuravano scrittori importanti come Bontempelli, Borgese, Folgore, Govoni, Marinetti, Onofri, Rebora, Saba, Sbarbaro, Soffici e soprattutto Ungaretti, che nel 1916 pubblicò nella rivista alcune delle poesie raccolte nello stesso anno nel suo libro d'esordio: "Il porto sepolto". Simpatia e interesse per la "Diana" dimostrò anche B. Croce, che vi pubblicò nel 1916 due articoli.” Così Diz. Biografico Italiani,LXX, p. 656 - Salaris “Storia del Futurismo”, p. 82.

        Green Branches

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1916. 'JS' Bound by 'AS' [BINDING]. STEPHENS, James. Green Branches. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1916. First American Edition. Limited to 500 copies. Octavo (8 3/16 x 5 11/16 inches; 208 x 145 mm.). 32 unnumbered leaves printed on one side only. Bound in 1922, stamp-signed "A - S 1922" in gilt on rear turn-in. Full dark green levant morocco, covers decoratively tooled in gilt with a framework of flowers and stems surrounding a gilt ruled border which in turn surrounds another gilt border with similar floral tools in the corners and top and lower edges. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled with the same floral design in compartments. Gilt ruled board edges, and wide turn-ins with triple gilt rules and the same gilt flower ornaments in the corners, all edges gilt. Minimal darkening to spine. A very fine example. Although we have been unable to ascertain the identity of "A - S" this binding is most likely by a student of one of the great binders of the early twentieth century. It is unusual inasmuch as all of the six spine panels have been decoratively tooled in gilt - but with no lettering. James Stephens (1880-1950) was an Irish novelist and poet. By the early 1900s James was increasingly inclined to socialism and the Irish language and by 1912 was a dedicated Irish Republican. He was a close friend of the 1916 leader Thomas MacDonagh, who was then editor of "The Irish Review" and deputy headmaster in St Enda's, the radical bilingual school run by P.H. Pearse and would be manager of the Irish Theatre, and spent much time with MacDonagh in 1911. He produced many retellings of Irish myths and fairy tales. His retellings are marked by a rare combination of humor and lyricism -Deirdre (1923) and Irish Fairy Tales (1920) are often especially praised. He also wrote several original novels including The Crock of Gold, Etched in Moonlight, and Demi-Gods based loosely on Irish fairy tales. The Crock of Gold in particular has achieved enduring popularity. Stephens began his career as a poet under the tutelage of George William Russell, 1867-1935, the Irish writer, editor, critic and poet who wrote with the pseudonym "Æ". His first book of poems, Insurrections, was published in 1909. Green Branches contains three poems (The Autumn in Ireland: 1915; The Spring in Ireland: 1916 and Joy be with us) was written just before The Easter Rising (also know as the Easter Rebellion), an armed insurrection in Ireland during Easter week. Stephens's influential account of the 1916 Easter Rising, The Insurrection in Dublin, describes the effect of the deaths by execution of his friend Thomas MacDonagh and others. Stephens lived between Paris, London and Dublin. During the 1930s he was a friend of James Joyce, and they mistakenly believed that they shared a birthday. Joyce, who was concerned about his ability to finish what later became Finnegans Wake, proposed that Stephens assist him, with the authorship credited to JJ & S (for "Jameses Joyce & Stephens", but also a pun on the popular Irish whiskey made by John Jameson & Sons). The plan was never implemented, as Joyce was able to complete the work on his own.

        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 .

Her father¿s family were precision instrument makers (telescopes, opera glasses, miners¿ lamps) and had lived in England since the early nineteenth century. When she was six weeks old, the family moved to London, settling first in Kilburn and then later in Bayswater. Although not an observant Jew by birth (there were few Jews and no synagogue in Derby), Arthur Davis embraced Orthodoxy and, having mastered the Hebrew language, devoted his leisure to Jewish scholarship. In 1892, he published a study of the neginot (cantillation marks) in the Masoretic text of the Bible, and in the next decade, working with Herbert Adler (1876¿1940), a lawyer and nephew of Chief Rabbi Hermann Adler (1839¿1911), prepared what became the standard British edition and translation of the mahzor (festival prayer book). He transmitted his enthusiasm for Hebrew to his daughter Nina and, most unusually, gave her and her older sister, Elsie, an intensive Hebrew education, personally teaching them every day. While still in her teens, Nina began publishing translations of medieval Hebrew poetry in the Anglo-Jewish press. She also contributed to her father¿s edition of the mahzor. Israel Zangwill (1864¿1926), the best known Jewish writer in the English-speaking world at the time and, like her father, a member of the Kilburn Wanderers (the circle that formed around Solomon Schechter (1847¿1915) in the 1880s), encouraged her and provided her with an introduction to Judge Mayer Sulzberger (1843¿1923), a central figure in the Jewish Publication Society of America, which published her collection Songs of Exile by Hebrew Poets in 1901. On October 23, 1901, Nina married Redcliffe Nathan Salaman (1874¿1955), a physician whom she had met four months earlier at the New West End Synagogue. (It was, literally, love at first sight - they were engaged only ten days after setting eyes on each other.) After living in Berlin for several months, while Redcliffe completed advanced training in pathology, they returned to London, where he assumed the directorship of the Pathological Institute at the London Hospital. However, tuberculosis forced him to leave medicine, and after three months of recuperation in Switzerland, he and Nina settled in the country, in the village of Barley in Hertfordshire. Family money (ostrich feathers and London real estate) having relieved him of the need to earn a living, they lived comfortably with their six children (one of whom died in childhood) and numerous servants in a thirty-room country house. Nina Salaman continued to pursue her interest in medieval Hebrew poetry, while at the same time supervising her children¿s education, overseeing nannies, tutors, and servants, and, as the local squire¿s wife, entertaining the vicar, hosting garden parties, and helping the village poor. Despite Barley¿s distance from London, she maintained a kosher home (a matter of greater concern to her than to her husband) and Sabbath observance. For the festivals, the family traveled to London, where they stayed with one of Redcliffe¿s numerous siblings and worshiped at the New West End Synagogue. She took personal responsibility for the Hebrew education of her children until they left for boarding school, especially that of her eldest son Myer, who she hoped would become a rabbi. Barley¿s proximity to Cambridge brought Salaman into close contact with Israel Abrahams (1858¿1924), reader in rabbinics at the university since 1902 and, like Zangwill and her father, one of the Kilburn Wanderers . . .
