        THE SHADOW-LINE [complete in seven issues of The English Review]

      1916. London: The English Review, September 1916 - March 1917. Seven consecutive issues, in original blue-grey printed wrappers. First Appearance of this novel about a young man taking over the captaincy of a ship in the Far East -- Conrad's third autobiographical work, following THE MIRROR OF THE SEA and SOME REMINISCENCES. (Actually, an American appearance was completed first -- complete in the September and October 1916 issues of Metropolitan Magazine.) Dent's UK edition came out in March 1917 (substantially altered from this English Review version), followed a month later by Doubleday Page's US edition (from Dent's early proofs, which did NOT have those substantial changes).~The March 1917 issue also includes the first appearance of D.H. Lawrence's short story "Samson and Delilah"; this would not appear in book form until 1922, in his book ENGLAND, MY ENGLAND.~The seven issues are in very good-plus to fine condition: the December issue has minor edge-wear of the rear cover, the January issue has some wear of the spine, the March issue has a 5-cm closed tear at the bottom of the front cover (nothing missing), but the other issues are close to fine. Quite uncommon as a complete set. See Cagle A21a and Roberts (Lawrence) A23.

        [A Small But Highly Significant File of Correspondence Relating to the Film Version of His Novel, THE DEEMSTER]

      Heath Brow, Hampstead Heath, 1916. Comprised of one typed letter, signed (13 pages), two autograph letters, signed (3 and 7 pages), an autograph note, signed, and two related items, three with envelopes. Quarto, octavo, and 12mo, all but one item (a related retained carbon), very good or better. In 1916, the American company, Arrow Film Corporation, undertook an adaptation to the screen of Caine's highly popular 1887 novel, THE DEEMSTER. Of special import is the fact that Caine's son, Derwent Hall Caine, then in the US, was actively involved in the project, and played the lead role of Daniel Mylrea - Derwent appeared in at least seven films prior to embarking on his career as publisher and Labour Party politician. Howell Hansel directed the film, which is formally credited to screenwriters Edfrid A. Bingham and Charles A. Taylor (but was, in large part, by A. D. Levino). The present archive records of correspondence records in detail the degree of Hall Caine's own participation in the adaptation, and includes: a) a remarkable typed letter, signed, from Hall Caine, 13 pages, quarto, with extensive manuscripts corrections and additions, to his son Derwent, c/o The Arrow Film Corporation, New York City, dissecting the scenario of THE DEEMSTER, scene by scene, in reference to "General Plotting of the Story," "Motive of the Quarrel," "The Love Interest," and "Minor Suggestions," etc, and offering "suggestions for the consideration of the Company as far as they are still practicable...." This letter is accompanied by a clean carbon of a retyping of the letter, likely intended to circulate within the company; b) an autograph letter, signed, from Caine to A. D. Le Vino, of the Arrow Film Corporation, Hampstead Heath, 28 August 1916, 3pp, octavo, referencing the above letter and congratulating him "...on the Scenario of THE DEEMSTER. It is good indeed. I thought it short. I wrote a long letter making suggestions (addressed to my son care of your Company) & I have since cabled suggesting a few bright, winsome scenes at the beginning to develop Dan's charm & make the people love him before he is plunged in the tragedy. I trust the end as in the book can be followed. But an alternative happy end might be also be taken in case of absolute need..."; c) an autograph letter, signed, from Caine to A. D. Le Vino, of the Arrow Film Corporation, Hampstead Heath, 29 August 1916, 7pp, octavo, dealing extensively with the theme and the details of the story and the production, reading in small part: "It was very good of your President to promise to take again any scene that seemed to require altering. There are a few ... that seem to me to do that, but I feel that some might be added to give depth of emotion to the greater scenes. In my long letter to my son I have indicated these scenes -- the greater scenes, particularly, between Dan & Mona, & Dan & the Bishop. Anything you can do to deepen & heighten the emotion in these scenes will add greatly to the effect of the film. If you can indicate, without offence, that the story of the Deemster is, in effect, the story of the parable of the Prodigal Son, I think it will help the public to follow & sympathise with it. … I should like you to do all you can to develop the death end & to bring it to a high level of spiritual exaltation. It seems to me a little hurried in the scenario. … On secondary points -- could you by any mechanical manipulation of cut film convey the sense of the phantom ship in the scenes of Dan's isolation when he passes through the fishing fleet? Could you introduce the collie dog (if he is a good actor) in the scenes of plague. ... Could you have the dog in the last scene expressing its dumb sympathy with Dan? And Dan (who has Mona beside him) touching the dog's head with a grateful hand? ... Pray grant me your indulgence in making these suggestions. I am very anxious that both your company, you yourself & my son should have a great[?] success with this film." Finally by way of a lengthy postscript Caine adds: "... Do you remember Rossetti's poem & picture of the Blessed Damozel, which shews the girl in heaven looking down on her lover on earth? Do you also remember Mr. Belasco's last scene in the Darling of the Gods where the lovers are seen united on their way to heaven? If so, you will grasp my meaning..."; d) an autograph note, signed, one page, 12mo, Hampstead Heath, 17 August 1916, with envelope, from Caine to the war- time Postal censor, asking for rapid clearance of his mail as it "consists of nothing but instructions for the making of a cinema film ..." - the envelopes that are present each bear censor inspection labels; d) a retained carbon typescript letter, 2pp., from Derwent Caine to "Dear Father," 31 July 1916, quarto, on poor pulp paper stock and thus somewhat chipped and delicate, forwarding LeVino's scenario, asking for Caine's specific reactions and advice about details and the overall interest and success of the adaptation, etc. He notes: "However, I must tell you that we are starting work this afternoon, and naturally a great many scenes will be taken before you will have a chance to see it [the scenario]. But Dr. Shallenberger, the president of the company, says that if you suggest a new beginning to the story, which to us seems at present a little weak, he would take whatever number of scenes required fresh, in order to get Dan placed as more of a gentleman coming down a little more gradually to the fisher life than at present is in the scenario." He indicates the scenario ("only finished a couple of days ago") is being rushed by the first steamer, and the pencil postscript notes that he also included some promotional material for the company's last film (not present); and e) an autograph note, 1 1/2pp., octavo, on letterhead, from Mary Hall Caine, evidently to Arrow Films, enclosing a photograph [not present] of Caine to be used for promotional purposes. The correspondence affords a detailed glimpse into the intimate involvement of a novelist in the film adaptation of one of his books, material the nature of which, for this period, is highly uncommon.

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."

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. First edition. Very Good +. A Very Good+ to Near Fine copy with very slight rubbing at the spine ends and a few spots of soiling to the final pages, but unrepaired and otherwise in very attractive condition. The author's first novel, a semi-autobiographical work, that laid the groundwork for his masterpiece, "Ulysses." This novel is more accessible than some of his later work. It tracks the physical, emotional and psychological growth of a young Joyce as he searches for his voice and his path in life, culminating with the decision to pursue his art abroad: "I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race." "It is a mosaic of jagged fragments that does altogether render with extreme completeness the growth of a rather secretive, imaginative boy in Dublin. The technique is startling, but on the whole it succeeds." -- H. G. Wells. Very Good +.

        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. Ten volumes, small quarto. Original illustrated wrappers. 20 illustrated plates (some in colour) to each volume, with an additional vignette in the text in each. A superb set, some very minor rubbing at the extremities of some volumes, with the occasional trivial mark, but all fresh, intact, and in excellent condition. First edition, complete as published in the original monthly parts, 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 superb condition, 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." (IWM Somme web-site).
