        Goliath and David, Poems (Association copy), 1st printing, 1916

      London: Privately Printed at the Chiswick Press, 1916. First printing. Paperback. Very Good. First edition of author's second book, published in 1916 in very small number. 8vo, plain red wraps, 20pp, about very good copy with some tiredness to the edges, faint soil, most minor paper loss at spine ends, with bookplate of Percy Withers (1867-1945) to verso of front wrap. Minor association copy: both Withers and Graves were alumni of Somerville College (Oxford), and while Withers made his living as a medic and GP, he had literary ambitions and was friendly with A. E. Housman, Yeats, Edmund Blunden, Max Beerbohm, William Rothenstein, John and Paul Nash, and Alice Meynell, and thus had plenty of chance to interact with Graves, but it is not clear that they figured strongly in each other's lives.

        Bullets and Billets. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

      Grant Richards, [1916]. 8vo., First Edition, with a portrait frontispiece (original tissue guard present), illustrated title, 17 plates and numerous illustrations, all by the author, in the text, some mild spotting to text and fore-edges (rather heavier on half-title and a few leaves); original red pictorial cloth, upper board and backstrip blocked and lettered in black, upper hinge starting (exposing webbing but binding wholly sound), a good copy. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON HALF-TITLE. Bairnsfather's first book, and the only one written and illustrated by him and published during the Great War, provides a light-hearted account of his experiences as an 'Old Contemptible'. It covers arrival France in 1914, life in the trenches in 'Plugstreet Wood' (including the notorious Christmas Truce'), the birth of 'Old Bill' and 'Fragments', and his blighty one received during the first gas attack at Second Ypres (April 1915). The sequel 'From Mud to Mufti' appeared in 1919. This is arguably Bairnsfather's most iconic title, containing several of his best-known cartoons including 'Chuck us the Biscuits', 'Shut that blinkin' Door' and, of course, 'Old Bill' himself. Signed copies are scarce. Holt, p.244.

        The Book of the Homeless. (Le Livre des Sans-Foyer).

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1916. 160p, illustrations, facsimiles. 13"x10". First edition. Bluish green cloth back and gray paper boards; titling in gilt on the front cover and spine. Portfolio of bluish green cloth sides and gray paper board. Printed by D. B. Updike at the Merrymount Press. The colophon states: "Of this book, in addition to the regular edition, there have been printed and numbered one hundred and seventy-five copies deluxe, of larger format. Numbers 1-50 on French hand-made paper, containing four facsimiles of manuscripts and a second set of illustrations in portfolio. Numbers 51-175 on Van Gelder paper." This is copy 37/50 copies deluxe on French hand-made paper signed by D.B. Updike, with the facsimiles, and with the portfolio of twenty two prints. With the introduction by Theodore Roosevelt. With original contributions from many of the leading artists and writers of the day, all solicited by Wharton to create a book to help finance her war efforts on behalf of the French refugees streaming into Paris; including Rupert Brooke, Paul Claudel, Jean Cocteau, Joseph Conrad, John Galsworthy, William Dean Howells, Thomas Hardy, Henry James, W. B. Yeats, George Santayana, Igor Stravinsky, Léon Bakst, Max Beerbohm, Charles Dana Gibson, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Rénoir, Auguste Rodin, and John Singer Sargent. Wharton was disappointed that Rudyard Kipling did not contribute. The book was a success at publicizing her campaign for the homeless. What was an equal success was the auction after publication of the original art work and manuscripts. "It was undoubtedly the most prestigious of the memorial books produced during the war and received excellent press coverage and reviews. The New York Times Book Review observed that its famous contributors 'have given their best' " (from Shari Benstock's Edith Wharton: A Biography). For a fascinating account of the production of the Book of the Homeless, see Alan Price's "The Making of Edith Wharton's The Book of the Homeless." A former library copy with marks professionally removed or reduced. Bottom cover rubbed; minor spotting of the end papers; still a very good copy of this rare deluxe printing with the very rare portfolio of prints in occasional foxing in very good condition. Photographs on request. [Garrison: D1.1.a]

        El Descubrimiento de si mismo. Cartas a Julio que tratan de cosas muy importantes para los artistas

      Tarrasa, La Industria- Morral & Co. 1916 - 83 páginas. Rarísima y desconocida primera edición de este libro fundamental de Joaquín Torres-García. Esta edición es absolutamente desconocida. Solo se conocen otros tres ejemplares, uno en la Biblioteca Nacional de Cataluña, otro en la Biblioteca Municipal de Tarrasa, y un tercero en el archivo de Cecilia de Torres en Nueva York (la tirada fue de 300 ejemplares). El Archivo del Museo Torres-García y la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid no tienen ejemplares de esta edición. Esta rareza ha hecho que hasta hace muy poco se considerara la primera y única edición la de 1917 en Gerona, con la famosa cubierta realizada por el artista. La presente edición de 1916 posee una cubierta diferente de línea modernista. Tal como apunta en el colofón , el libro terminó de escribirse en su casa de Mon Repós en Tarrasa el 15 de junio de 1916. De ahí que esté impreso en dicha localidad. Este es un libro absolutamente fundamental en la trayectoria del artista. Torres-García presenta en este libro por primera vez el giro que dio su arte y su pensamiento en 1916. Con la llegada a Barcelona de los artistas extranjeros huyendo de la Guerra Europea (Los Delaunay, Charchoune, Picabia, Barradas), el arte de Torres-García se aleja de la estética Noucentista y se acerca a posiciones más vanguardistas. En este libro anima a los artistas buscar su arte en si mismos y a proponer arte más moderno y personal. Es su primer libro escrito en castellano (los anteriores están en catalán), lo que confirma que su distanciamiento del noucentismo no se refiere solamente a un sentir estético, sino personal. Las críticas recibidas desde las posiciones más tradicionalistas a los frescos del Salón de Sant Jordi y sus diferencias con Eugenio D'Ors le animan a buscar nuevos horizontes, que a la larga le llevarán a Nueva York en 1920. Julio R. Payro, el destinatario de estas cartas, fue un periodista argentino con el que el artista compartió una gran amistad. Payró le consiguió el encargo de los frescos para el pabellón de Uruguay en la gran exposición internacional de Bruselas en 1909. Posteriormente escribió varios textos acerca del artista, destacando el publicado en Madrid en 1934 junto a Guillermo de Torre en una de las primeras monografías publicadas sobre Torres-García.

        Autograph letter signed "D.M." to the American pianist, educator, composer, and arranger Livingston Gearhart

      "A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, [Milhaud's] music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. "Gearhart (1916-1996) is probably best known for his hit arrangement of the classic 'Dry Bones' and his 'Session Series' of skills-building books. Gearhart attended the Curtis Institute of Music. Subsequent studies in France included composition with Nadia Boulanger, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud and piano with Robert Cadadesus and Isodor Philipp. During 1941 to 1954, the two-piano team of [Virginia] Morley and Gearhart performed over 2000 concerts throughout the US and Canada in addition to recording for Columbia Masterworks and Decca Records. Gearhart also made numerous TV and radio appearances on the Fred Waring Show, for which he wrote as staff arranger... In 1955 Gearhart joined the University of Buffalo Music Faculty, retiring to Professor Emeritus status in 1985." 1 page. Folio (ca. 279 x 215 mm.). N.d. In English. Milhaud very enthusiastically thanks Livingston for his "kind collaboration," and will send a 2-piano version of some of his Songs as soon as it is photocopied. He includes greetings for Livingston's wife, Virginia Morley, for whom his Song arrangements are presumably also intended. He will come in December, and hopes to see Livingston often. "10000000 thanks. You acted very wonderfully and I jumped on my desk and made a 2 pianos version of three numbers of my Songs which I intended to do for months... I think you will like those little pieces. The Russian-River-Pianist asked me only the rights of the 1st performance and no exclusivity. You will be able to play 'his' piece after January if you wish... I am too glad to send you new old pieces because you [and Virginia] are both artists that I love and admire..." Slightly worn; minor edge tears; creased at folds and corners; tape repairs to central fold of blank verso with minor remnants of former mount to upper margin.

        Aqueduct and Subway Engineer and His Projects on the Catskill Aqueduct, the Hudson River Siphon and New York City Subway Construction 1910-1916

      1916. Hardcover. Very good condition. Personal photograph album of Horatio Seymour, the great-great-great grandson of President John Adams and the great nephew of New York Governor Horatio Seymour (1810-1886). He was born in Michigan in 1883 and educated at Yale. The album is made up of 104 photographs he took of his engineering projects from 1910-1916. The first part of the album reflects his work as inspector for the Board of Water Supply for New York in the construction of the water supply for New York City known as the Catskill Aqueduct and the Hudson River Siphon. Work commenced in 1907 and completed in 1916. The Hudson River Siphon was a tunnel built below the Hudson River (at 1140 feet below sea level) at Breakneck Mountain to funnel Catskill water to the citizens of NYC. There are 26 photographs dating from 1910, 1911 & 1913 of East Shaft Compressor Plant, Hudson River Siphon, Aqueduct in Open Cut, West Portal - Breakneck Tunnel, Mixing Concrete for Shaft #10 Lining (with workers). Some photographs of fellow contractors and engineers are identified. Seymour was next employed as assistant engineer for the Public Service Commission, New York State in charge of subway construction from 1912-1915. The 27 photographs show the construction of Mosholu Parkway, Bedford Park Station, Jerome Avenue Elevated and the White Plains Avenue Elevated in Brooklyn. On one interesting page in the album, Seymour created a hierarchical chart of identified photographs of the engineers employed at the "Public Service Com. Engineers on Construction of Route #16, Sec. #2". The remaining photographs are of his family vacations of 1911, 1912, 1916 including fishing on several Canadian Lakes, and trips by ship to Kingston, Jamaica, and the Panama Canal. Album 11 x 7.25", black thick paper covers, 64 leaves with photographs (the rest blank), photographs are 5.5 x 3.3", glue mounted mostly two per page with handwritten captions. Cover is rubbed at edges/corners and spine head/foot shows wear with one small chip at upper spine corner. Very interesting.

        Mountain Interval

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1916. First edition, first state. Hardcover. This is the first edition of Frost?s third published book, and Frost?s first book for which the U.S. edition takes precedence, both A Boy?s Will and North of Boston having been first published in Great Britain. ?Mountain Interval, which appeared in November 1916, offered readers some of his finest poems, such as ?Birches,? ?Out, Out--,? ?The Hill Wife,? and ?An Old Man?s Winter Night.? (ANB) The volume opens with the poem ?The Road Not Taken.? It was in 1916 that Frost was made Phi Beta Kappa poet at Harvard and elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. This copy is in good plus condition. First state is confirmed by repetition of the sixth line on p.88 and the word 'Come,' instead of 'Gone,' on p.93. (Crane A4, p.21) Condition is good plus. The blue cloth binding remains square and tight with wear to the spine ends and corners, mild spine dulling, and a scattering of small stains to the front cover. The contents remain clean, age-toned but with no previous ownership marks or spotting. Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England. When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career. There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities. Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming. Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children ? ?the place to be poor and to write poems? ? that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet. The manuscript of A Boy?s Will was completed in England and accepted for publication by David Nutt on 1 April 1913. A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost?s second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which ?Frost?s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.? Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst ?launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever ?subjects? he pleased at a congenial college? and ?barding around,? his term for ?saying? poems in a conversational performance.? (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life as ?the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century? with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961). Bibliographic reference: Crane A4.
