        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.

      Gallot, imprimeur éditeur, Auxerre, 1916. Un volume in-4° (19,2 x 28, 8cm), demi-reliure cartonnée façon cuir, de couleur verte, avec coins idem, dos lisse avec lettrage doré (auteur et titre) , couverture initiale conservée , en tête: une brève présentation des collaborateurs de l'ouvrage suivie d'une introduction sur l'AVALLONNAIS (pp.V-XXIV). L'ouvrage proprement dit compte 352 pages, dont in fine une biographie avallonnaise et une table des matières . On trouve in-texte de très nombreuses illustrations (croquis d'édifices, details d'architecture ou autres, paysages ). Et l'on trouve aussi 7 plans dépliants dont 6 en couleurs (parmi ceux-ci, un grand plan -48 x60 cm- de l'arrondissement d'AVALLON).Le court texte liminaire NOS COLLABORATEURS se termine par ces mots: "Les dessins, plans et cartes occuperont une place considerable dans ce volume. Selon notre pensée, ils doivent pour l'avenir en constituer la partie la plus importante, eu égard aux édifices disparus depuis lontemps, ou ruinés et même démolis"... A la fin de notre livre, la pagination passe sans raison explicable de la page 344 à la page 351. Tout ce qui est annoncé dans la table des Matières est pourtant bien présent dans l'ouvrage. Alors, erreur à l'atelier d'impression, erreur du relieur, véritable manque? En tout cas, il s'agit d'un ouvrage devenu très rare et en TRES BON ETAT.

As such this is a fine association to Pound's rare work on Gaudier-Brzeska - of the 1,000 sets of sheets printed, 200 were used for the American issue, 100 were only bound up in 1927-28 and 250 were reissued by Laidlaw and Laidlaw in 1939, meaning that only a maximum of 450 copies could conceivably exist in the original state seen here. The rear free endpaper bears some notes, presumably Hind's hand.

        The Allies' Fairy Book

      1916. The Deluxe Edition"How Beautiful I Think Your Illustrations""One of Three Over-Copies"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. The Allies? Fairy Book. With an introduction by Edmund Gosse C.B. and illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [n.d., 1916].Edition DeLuxe Limited to 525 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being "one of three over-copies". Quarto (9 11/16 x 7 3/8 inches; 246 x 187 mm.). xxii, 121, [1], [4, blank] pp. Twelve color plates mounted on heavy brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards printed in red, and twenty-four drawings in black and white. Publisher's blue buckram, front cover and spine pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, decorative end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Corners slightly bumped, covers a little soiled, otherwise an excellent copy.Three of the tipped-in color plates (frontispiece, facing p. 18 & p.94 have white borders and are from the smaller format first trade edition. The most probable explanation is that the publisher decided to bind up this "one of three over-copies" but was short of three of the color plates which they substituted with the smaller ones from the trade edition."His book for 1916, The Allies' Fairy Book, published by Heinemann as a contribution to the mood of patriotism and cooperation between the Allies, is likewise composed of images that thrill and inspire, but do not terrify. Where in Grimm, Rackham happily includes illustrations of people battering each other to death or hanging by the hair and caught in brambles alive or half dead, this kind of image is not dwelt upon in The Allies' Fairy Book... even though some of the stories are as red in tooth and claw as any of their type and certainly would have allowed a violent interpretation. Reports coming back from the Front, eye-witness accounts of devastation, violation and butchery, were quite enough to suggest to Rackham and his publishers that at this time the Allies could be spared violent images with their family reading at home." (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham. p. 109)."When The Allies' Fairy Book was published, [Edmund] Gosse wrote to Rackham (6th November 1916): 'Will you think me impertinent if I tell you how beautiful I think your illustrations... their variety, and ingenuity, and the delicacy of your fancy, and the romantic ardour of your mind, were never so humble a degree - in a work so charming'" (Hudson, p. 104).The tales, from their nation of origin, include: English: Jack the Giant-KillerScottish: The Battle of the BirdsWelsh: Lludd and LlevelysIrish: GuleeshFrench: The Sleeping BeautyItalian: Cesarino and The DragonPortuguese: What Came of Picking FlowersJapanese: The Adventures of Little Peachling, The Fox's Wedding and The Tongue-cut SparrowRussian: FrostSerbian: The Golden Apple-tree and The Nine Pea HensBelgium: The Last Adventure of Thyl UlenspiegelLatimore and Haskell, pp. 45-46.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1916. The first colour illustrated edition, early reissue of the first edition with the Detmolds’ illustrations. With 16 superb illustrations in color by Maurice & Edward Detmold. Small 4to, publisher’s bright red cloth lettered in gilt on spine, the upper cover gilt-lettered and pictorially gilt-decorated featuring Riki Tiki Tavi, t.e.g. xii, 314, [2 ads] pp. A very handsome copy, the text and cloth both bright and fresh, just a bit of very minor expected age mellowing. ONE OF THE MOST DESIRABLE EDITONS OF KIPLING'S FAMED JUNGLE BOOK, With illustrations by both Edward and Maurice Detmold. To this day, these illustrations are treasured for their power and sensitivity. They are evocative of an age gone by but represent some of the finest work created during the new renaissance of English book illustration at the turn of the century. Copies are now quite elusive. The Jungle Book represents a collection of Kipling’s best loved stories for children. The first stories are built around the premise of a human child lost in the jungles and raised by wild animals. Among the noted characters are Mowgli the child, Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear. The beloved tale of Riki Tiki Tavi is also among these enchanting stories.

        Vázlatok a Hadifogságból. Sketches From the Prison of War. Piestschanka. POW camp Peschanka, near Chita, Siberia, c. 1916-1917.

      1916. 14 mounted plates in pencil, ink and colour wash, 2 of which are stuck to the outsides of the portfolio's protective boards with cloth ties. Various sizes, but mostly ca. 170 x 130 mmmm. Signed and captioned in English and Hungarian. Rare survival of a collection of sketches from the Russian POW camp in Peschanka, Siberia, all executed by an evidently accomplished, otherwise undocumented Hungarian artist (and soldier in the Austro-Hungarian army) who captured the conditions in and around the camp during the later years of the First World War. Thám's caricature-like style is marked by clear, precise outlines reminiscent of the work of Olaf Gulbransson and Eduard Thöny. The two larger sketches on the cover boards (measuring ca. 170 x 220 mm) show self-portraits of the artist, at work at oil paintings (one a landscape, the other a nude). The leaves within show prisoners climbing the bunk bed or resting in their crowded cots, marching through a snowed-in camp carrying heavy buckets, playing chess, etc.; some are captioned "Coming from the American Y.M.C.A. Kitchen", "The Red Cross library", or even show ladies in fur coats with an officer "at the exhibition", while a few others have Easter Greetings themes. - Peschanka is near Chita in the Transbaikalia region, on the Trans-Siberian Railway, 6035 kilometres from Moscow. While during the Great War conditions in the POW camps on the whole were vastly superior to those during WWII, due to the efforts of the Red Cross and inspectors from neutral countries, the situation in the Siberian camps was notoriously poor, and about a quarter of the 2.1 million Austro-Hungarian soldiers which Russia held as prisoners or war did not survive. - Browned due to paper, with occasional edge flaws, but well-preserved.
