        BROOK AND RIVER TROUTING: A MANUAL OF MODERN NORTH COUNTRY METHODS. By Harfield H. Edmonds and Norman N. Lee. Smith Settle De luxe edition.

      Smith Settle. Otley, West Yorkshire. - (1916) 2003 4th edition. Edition limited to 60 sets. Ppxiv,106. Colour plates of flies, tipped-in b/w photographs. Full goatskin, matching slipcase. Two volumes, one of text and one containing flies, presented together in one slipcase. A very fine set with slight marks to the slipcase. Leslie Magee's copy. One of a de luxe edition limited to 60 sets, 50 numbered, for sale, and 10 lettered, hors commerce. This is lettered copy G, originally belonging to Leslie Magee who contributed the introduction to this edition. The publisher's note on how to care for the book, originally loosely laid in, has been taped to the first blank end-paper and signed "Leslie Magee, July 2003." The volume of text is a new printing of the 1997 Smith Settle facsimile edition, on high quality paper and with the sepia photographs tipped-in rather than printed. It has a subscribers list and a limitation page, and contains the new introduction by Leslie Magee. The second volume contains 36 specimen flies together with examples of the materials required to tie them, displayed in ten mounts. The flies were tied by Stuart Bowdin of Nelson, who has signed the limitation page. Both volumes are handsomely bound in full dark-brown goatskin, gilt-lettered and with raised bands, and presented in a buckram and leather slipcase. The 1997 edition mentions this de luxe edition as though it was produced in that year. However the flies were five years in the tying; hence the later date of this edition. The whole edition sold out before publication and is now very hard to find. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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 +.

        Franz Werfel's Holograph letter to Heinrich Mann

      - One page handwritten letter in ink on bifolio. Size: 156 × 203 mm. Signed and dated in Prague, on December 31, 1916. Franz Werfel's autograph letter to Heinrich Mann. Werfel proposes Heinrich Mann to meet Mimi Ederer, who - according to Werfel - has read and admires Mann's books, and would like to meet him in person. The letter dates on the last day of 1916, while Werfel was on a short leave ("nur auf kurzen Urlaub in Europa") in Prague during his service on the the Russian front. Franz Werfel (1890-1945) was an Austrian-Bohemian Jewish author. His first book of poems was published in 1911, and soon after that he became member of the Prague Circle of German-speaking Jewish writers, whose members were Franz Kafka, Max Brod and Egon Erwin Kisch. In 1912 Werfel moved to Germany, where he established friendship with the most eminent German-speaking writers and intellects, his relation to Heinrich Mann is probably also dates at this point. During World War I he served as a telephone operator in the Austro-Hungarian army on the Russian front. After the War he settled down in Vienna, published his novels, and became one of the most prominent and best-selling author of the time. His masterpiece "The Forty Days of Musa Dagh" appeared in 1933 based on the true events of the Armenian Genocide by the Turks during World War I. After the Anschluss, the German annexation ofAustria in 1938, he was forced into exile, first to France and finally across the Pyrenees together with Heinrich Mann and other refugees, to the United States. He died in Los Angeles in 1945. Mimi Ederer is mentioned in Grete Fischer's autobiography as her handsome classmate in secondary school in Prague. Grete Fischer (1893-1977) was an emigrant writer in the UK, and during her early years in Prage was close friend with Franz Werfel and Egon Erwin Kisch (the latter also new Mimi Ederer, and mentions her in his correspondence with his family). (Bibl.: Fischer, G.: Dienstboten, Brecht und Andere. Zeitgenossen in Prag, Berlin, London. London: Walter-Olten, 1966. pp. 63-66.; Kisch, E. E.; Polá?ek, J.[ed.].: Briefe an den Bruder Paul und an die Mutter 1905-1936. Berlin: Aufbau, 1978. p. 108 and 190.]. One page handwritten letter in ink on bifolio. Size: 156 × 203 mm.

        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."

      E. Ponsonby Ltd, Dublin, 1916. 1st edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the limitation page, this being no 139 of only 200 copies. A beautifully produced book about the men of 'D' Company of the 7th Royal Dublin Fusiliers, particularly those who died at Suvla Bay in the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign of the First World War. There are eight watercolour sketches by Lieutenant Drummond Fish, with tissue guards, and numerous photographs, including a remarkable 'Who's Who' of 300 Pals. The cream dustjacket is a little rubbed, with some light nicks at the extremities, and is extremely scarce in itself. In his Foreword, Lieutenant-General Sir Bryan T. Mahon writes, ' No more gallant battalion ever left the shores of Ireland...this heroic band was unexcelled in the British Army for bravery, dash, discipline, and a sense of duty.' As they left Dublin, street lads were singing 'A credit to the nation, a thousand buccaneers/ A terror to creation are the Dublin Fusiliers'. The Pals, mostly from professional backgrounds, suffered terrible losses at Suvla Bay between 7 August and 29 September 1915, and this book is a glorious record of their exploits.

        Dorfkarneval ist aus" (so die Künstler-Beschriftung auf dem Keilrahmen verso). Öl auf Leinwand, 75 x 100 cm, monogrammiert unten rechts, nicht datiert (vermutlich 50er oder frühe 60er Jahre). - Schlichte Rohholzleiste.

      Schnell (1916 Wuppertal - 1986 Berlin), hauptsächlich als Schriftsteller bekannt, gehörte zur Gruppe der Berliner "Malerpoeten" (u.a. G.B. Fuchs, Zeidler, Meckel, Mühlenhaupt). Das (im Vergleich zu Schnells anderen Bildern) ungewöhnlich großformatige Gemälde geht vermutlich auf Wuppertaler Kindheitseindrücke zurück, - ähnlich denen von Else Lasker-Schüler, eine Generation zuvor, in ihrem Schauspiel "Die Wupper".- Guter Zustand - Versandkonditionen vorbehalten.

Also included here is a ninth log-book volume: Scoresby, William: The 1806 Log Book Concerning the Arctic Voyage of Captain William Scoresby. Whitby, Yorkshire: Caedmon of Whitby, 1981, ISBN 0 905355 24 5. An Eberstadt catalog of 1952 notes the following about the Explorer Club set: "Three hundred copies printed and plates destroyed; all copies permanently deposited in institutions, except for three presented to individuals: Dellenbaugh, Bartlett, and Stefansson. Although perhaps the most important work on whaling and early far-northern exploration ever to achieve print, apparently the desire of the patron, the late James B. Ford, that no copy should ever come on the market, has until now been fulfilled. The only record of the work is an appraisal made in 1937 by a qualified person, placing its value 'at a minimum of one thousand dollars.' The log-books, describing fourteen voyages into the Arctic seas from 1786 onward, are invaluable records of early northern navigation, whale fishing, and original exploration. Scoresby was the most successful whaler and ice navigator that ever lived; a foremost proponent of the Northwest Passage; inventor of the top-gallant 'crow's nest,' the ice drill, and much whaling equipment; and, with his son a leading scientific observer of the polar regions into which on many successive voyages he pushed farther than man had ever before ventured." This note documents the great rarity of this set. No previous ownership marks.

        Presentation to Mrs. John Fowle, from the President and Committee of the "Art Sale" at Messrs. Bennett's 3rd and 4th December, 1915

      (1916). 8vo, (18.5 x 12 cm). A fine calligraphic manuscript on eight leaves of thick card, the first four leaves beautifully illustrated and illuminated in colour with highlighting in gold, the remaining leaves comprising a list of members of the presentation committee. An accomplished Arts and Craft binding of tan morocco, spine with raised bands, the compartments blank but for a date label at the foot of the spine, both boards edged with a double gilt ruled border featuring alternate gilt flowers and inlaid green leather leaves along with a simple gilt tooled recurring motif across the main area, the upper board with an elaborate gilt tooled floral device to the centre with small inlaid red and green leather panels, the lower board with simpler central circular tooled border surrounding an inlaid red leather panel featuring the initials "H.F.". Some scuffing with loss to the leather of the upper board, some mild wear to the extremities, slight weakening at the front hinge, else in very good condition. The initials on the binding are for Héléne Fowle, a Belgian woman who had married and settled in Ireland. After the outbreak of the First World War many Belgians were displaced from their homeland and found refuge in England and subsequently Ireland. Fowle, along with Edward White, set up an organisation to raise money and support for the refugees - Fowle becoming President and White the Treasurer of what came to be known as the Committee for Dealing with the Interests of Belgians in Ireland. Their activities included street collections as well as canvassing for other donations of practical items such as clothes. Their enterprises became more sophisticated in time, including the events such as the art sale which prompted the production of this manuscript. Held in Bennett's Dublin sale room, lots included numerous valuable items along with canvases donated by the Irish artists John Lavery and William Orpen with the promise of a portrait by each artist to the winning bidder of the respective lots. The sale was evidently successful, raising in the region of £2,500, the proceeds being equally split between the Belgium refugees and a similar charitable organisation founded to support Irish prisoners of war on the continent. Héléne Fowle was awarded an MBE for her services in the 1918 New Years Honours list. Joseph Tierney was a Dublin based artist and illuminator, he was heavily involved in the Irish Arts and Crafts scene. He is best remembered for his work in churches, typically for stained glass windows and altars, although he also illustrated several books in the 1920s in collaboration with George Cogan. A unique and exquisitely crafted production.

      (Photographs New York) 1916 - 23 black leaves in use, 27 leaves blank [50 unpaginated leaves]. 31 b/w images (some sepia-toned) of the MARIE under construction in 1916. Following, 19 b/w photographic images by Edwin Levick (with his name and NY stamped to bottom right corner of each photograph) of the SUNSHINE on the water and its impressive interior. Most images of the MARIE 5-1/2" x 3-1/4". Levick images 8" x 10". Oblong format: 10-1/2" x 13-3/4" Edwin Levick was a famous boating photographer, most well-known for his many images of years of America's World Cup races, operating prolificly from the 1910s to the 1940s. Though the first pictures in this book are not attributed to him, it is presumed he was the photographer. The first 31 images follow the construction of the powered boat MARIE, from a simple wooden outline of the hull to completion. The last 19 images are of the luxurious SUNSHINE, of it elegantly gliding on the water and its sumptuous interior rooms, from the kitchen to the staterooms and the lifeboat deck. Though no information was able to be found on the SUNSHINE, we can assume these pictures were taken sometime in the early 1920s. Significant wear to covers (rubbing & chipping to edges of binding). Black leaves somewhat delicate, with light chipping to edges. Black flexible pebbled leatherette album covers, bound by black cord tie. Gilt "Photographs" stamped to front cover [Attributes: Hard Cover]
