Old news clipping regarding Lincoln's 125 Birthday and New England Cavalry facsimile advertisement laid in between pages 190-191 resulted in a brown shadow stain. Cloth binding protected by mylar jacket. Dornbusch I MN. This copy, owned by a relative of soldier(s) from the 1st Regiment, contains several short personal hand written notes in text and roster section. Two added "Orders" were placed inside the book. On the front paste down is a printed copy of Gen. Washington's General Order, Aug. 3, 1776 & Gen. McClellan's General Order, September 6, 1861. Written underneath the order in pencil - "This was in John Hoblitt's Knapsack." Next to the note is a question in pencil - "Who had it?". W. Stevens Abbott name is written in pen on the front paste down next to the order. On the right front flyleaf is the bookplate of Sydney C. Kerkis. A pencil inscription written underneath the bookplate reads, "John Hoblitt, Corporal, Co. "D" 21 years old. Died of Disease 11/20/1861 - There were Three Stevens, Four Abbotts and Two Hoblitts in the Regiment." The second added "Order" is located before page 1. This is a two page printed copy of "Lieut. Col. C. P. Adams' Last Order." Adam's order is loose and contains some pencil underlining and a hard to transcribe note - "I ga??? McClellans f??? at Beverly Post gar." An interesting note on the last page of Chapter 30 - "The First Minnesota at Fredericksburg" (page 275) reads: "Soon after this time Papa was mustered out transferred to Washington D.C. to take charge of Secy. Stanton's private printing - enlisting (for that purpose) in regular army as U.S. Hospital Steward." The "Roster" section contains several notes, check marks, underlining, etc. Some of the notes refer to relatives in the 1st Regiment. The 1st Minnesota Regiment was one of the first to volunteer for service. Governor Ramsey is credited for being the first Governor to volunteer troops for the Union. He happened to be in Washington D.C. at the time of the outbreak of the War. The 1st Minnesota Regiment suffered heavy causalities during its three year service.

        Die Grundlage der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1916. 8vo (23.2 x 15.8 cm). 64 pp. Contemporary quarter crimson calf over marbled boards. Gilt title on the spine. Original printed wrappers bound in.l The first description of Einstein's "general theory of relativity"and the first dealing with gravity, not to be confused with his 1905 introduction of the more limited "special relativity". This is the official "Sonderdruck" (offprint) from the "Annalen der Physik", Band 49, printed by Metzger & Wittig in Leipzig, with their number 314 on the title page verso (i.e. the true first edition with the pages numbered [1]-64). It includes a preface and an index that are not present in the Annalen-version. According to Weil, "This separate edition is printed on good, strong paper, the wrappers are of strong material too (163 x 243 mm) and it is described now as "t h e o r i g i n a l e d i t i o n" of this classic paper. ... There are several anastatic reprints of it". The rear wrapper lists seven other Barth publications, nearly all on physics and written by Wien, Planck, and Wiener, ending with Wiener, 1909, and Ziehen, 1916. There is also a little known later (1919) reprint, not listed in Weil, which is also dated "1916". However, in that edition the rear wrapper publication list ends with Lorentz (1919), and Wien (1919)! A clean copy, very slightly trimmed, otherwise unaltered. It is rare to see a copy with the contents and wrappers in such a good state. Horblit, 26c; Weil, 80a; PMM, 408.

Well-preserved copy bound in publisher's hand-painted silk boards, all edges gilt and in handpainted buckram portfolio by Kohgyo Terazaki. Portfolio weakly marked of use, the book itself near mint. '... fruit of my travels, extending for some ten years, in Central China, during which I took more than one thousand photographs of important cities, towns, commercial and industrial centres, noted historical places and sights, ancient monuments and architectures, and what not that may be found in the Yangtse Valley...In this book are arranged, one after another, the grand and majestic sights and scenes of the Yangtse basin from its upper district of Passhu down to Chingchow and Nanking, in such an order and fashion as to equally appeal to the profound interest of those who are already acquainted with China and of those who are not. Furthermore it has been my effort and hope to give thorough knowledge of geography, history and economic conditions of Central China, that is watered by one of the largest rivers of the world, and where a civilization entirely inherent to the Chinese people has been developed since time immemorial.I wish to invite special attention to the cover design of this album. It is from the brush of Mr. Kohgyo Terazaki, a Japanese artist of great distinction, he himself being a great scholar of things Chinese and an extensive traveler in the great continent which has so many things of interest and import yet to be exploited' [from the preface].

A wartime letter by Mata Hari in which she tells him about her life, her friends, and about Paris: "Me voilà déjà presque deux mois en voyage et il est vrai je ne vous ai pas encore donné de mes nouvelles. C'était un peu de votre faute parceque un jour que j'étais venue du consulat pour ces papiers inévitables, vous m'aviez reçu un peu brusquement. Peut-être étiez vous énervé ; ou ennuyé, soit - j'ai cru qu'il serait plus sage de ma part de ne pas venir inutilement vous déranger et voilà la raison pour laquelle je suis partie sans vous dire adieu. Tant mieux si je me suis trompée et si vous le désirez je serai toujours heureuse de vous écrire de temps en temps. Me voilà à Paris et comme vous voyez descendue au Gd. Hôtel. Ce n'est pas ce qu'il y a de mieux mais c'est central et j'ai trop d'essayages à faire pour ce que je habiterais plus loin. J'ai le grand bonheur jusque ici d'avoir mes amis en vie malgré qu'ils sont au front depuis le premier jour de la guerre et en première ligne. Quand ils sont en congé je leur suis tout ce que je puisse être, comme femme, et quand ils n'y sont pas, je suis la "marraine". D'abord je me suis amusée des marraines parceque il y a des ridicules, mais au fond il y a quelquechose de bien gentil, de bien Français, et voilà, que moi aussi je le suis devenue. [...] L'atmosphère de Paris est toujours Parisienne, il y a l'imprévu et on a le sourire, sans savoir pourquoi. On a envie d'être gracieuse, aimable, parceque on l'est envers vous. Je pense sérieusement à revenir vivre ici, mais je n'ose en parler encore au Baron v d C. [Cappelen, one of her lovers] Je sais que je lui ferai beaucoup de chagrin et alors j'attends". - Her border-crossing and powerful connections would see her executed as a spy the following year. - On Grand Hotel stationery; light toning; together with a period photograph of her in costume.

        "Ein Traum". Typed manuscript signed ("Franz Kafka"). [Prague, 1916].

      1916. Folio (338 x 211 mm). 2½ pp. on rectos only of a bifolium and a single sheet. With six autograph emendations (including the insertion of the word "und"). Signed typescript of Kafka's short story "Ein Traum" ("A Dream"). "Josef K. träumte...": Kafka's eerie evocation of a dream, in which Josef K. walks on a beautiful day in a cemetery, only to be confronted by his own freshly-dug grave. Although the use of the character "Josef K." suggests a connection with Kafka's novel "The Trial", "Ein Traum" does not obviously conform to the structure and narrative viewpoint of the novel, and seems always to have been a distinct work. The piece first appeared in the collection "Das jüdische Prag", published in Prague by the editors of the Zionist journal "Selbstwehr" early in 1917. It is apparent that the present, previously untraced typescript is the one sent in by Kafka for this purpose: not only does the recorded provenance go back to the editor of "Selbstwehr", Siegmund Kaznelson, but the text of the typescript conforms precisely with the variants of the "Das jüdische Prag" version (notably "anderen" for "andern" on f. 2, lines 22f.). Two other typescripts of the story, one known only from a photocopy, are recorded by the editors of the "Schriften" (Drucke zu Lebzeiten, Apparatband, S. Fischer, 1992, pp. 356ff.): as those, the present version bears minor typographical corrections in Kafka's hand; the paper size of the present typescript is very close to that of their T1. - With printer's annotations ("½ fett Petit", corrected to "Einfache Petit") and number "3" in pencil at upper margin of p.1, as well as a note of publication in "Selbstwehr. Das jüd[ische] Prag". Provenance: Submitted by Kafka to the Zionist periodical "Selbstwehr", at the time edited by Siegmund Kaznelson (1893-1959). Kaznelson was married to Lisa Weltsch, whose cousin Felix was a close friend of Kafka's and was to serve as editor of the "Selbstwehr" from 1919 to 1938. Presented to an unidentified collector by Kaznelson in Berlin, March/April 1936 (note in Hebrew at foot of manuscript); last in a distinguished Israeli collection. Extremely rare: no comparable Kafka typescript is recorded in international auction records of the past four decades.

        A Handbook of Arabia. Volume I: General. Volume II: Routes. London, H. M. Stationery Office (Frederick Hall, Oxford) and (vol. 2) Admiralty War Staff, Intelligence Division, [1916]-May 1917.

      1916. 8vo. (3)-708, (2) pp., XV pp. of plates. With four folding maps within pouch inside lower cover. 519, (3) pp., IX pp. of plates. Lacks the map, but with a different, supernumerary map within pouch inside lower cover. Modern (vol. 1) and original (vol. 2) blue cloth with giltstamped cover and spine titles (vol. 2 with closing fore-edge flap). Only edition of this rare, secret Naval Intelligence Handbook, compiled by D. G. Hogarth, Keeper of Antiquities at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (and close friend of T. E. Lawrence) for the British Admiralty's new Naval Intelligence Division, intended for the exclusive use of British officers operating on the Arabian Peninsula during the Great War. Although the information contained was classified as confidential, it could "in certain cases be communicated to persons in H.M. Service below the rank of commissioned officer", though officers exercising this power were warned to impart such data only with "due caution and reserve". As the introductory "Note" informs the reader, "The sources from which this work has been compiled include native information obtained since the outbreak of the war [...] Separate chapters are devoted to each of the great districts of Arabia [...] After the area of the territory under review has been defined, its physical character is described unter the subsections of Relief and Climate. Then follow social and political surveys of the district, the former usually arranged under the sub-headings of Population, Life and Appliances, Products and Trade, Currency, and Weights and Measurements, the latter describing the system of Government, Recent History, and Present Politics. The last section of such a chapter is purely geographical and is devoted to the Districts of the territory [...] In a composite chapter, such as that on the Gulf Coast, dealing with several independent territories, the same general arrangement, when practicable, has been followed for each area [...] The plates at the end of each volume have been chosen to illustrate the varieties of country which are characteristic of Arabia". The second volume is devoted "mainly to detailed routes, preceded by two chapters on methods of transport and lines of communication [...] Chapters have been incorporated on Meteorological Observations, Hygiene and Disease, and Vocabularies". All four maps of the first volume (Districts and Town; Orographical Features; Land Surface Features; Tribal Map) are present as called for; the "Key Map of Routes" in the second volume has been replaced by an orographical map of Palestine and Trans-Jordan (1933). While the first volume (I. D. 1128) has been rebound to style (lacking the half-title noting the confidential character of all information contained), the second volume (C. B. 405) is preserved in its original binding as issued, bearing also the copy number "Copy 117" in gilt on the upper cover. A Note of Confidentiality calls attention to "the penalties attaching to any infraction of the Offical Secrets Act". Stamps on flyleaf and pastedown trace its provenance to the Royal Central Asian Society, founded in 1901, and the book remained on the shelf of that Society's secretary when it was renamed the "Royal Society for Asian Affairs" in 1975. This ownership is cancelled in ballpoint, with a note "Sold to Mr. M. Graham" (i.e., Murray Graham, British collector and exploration agent in Arabia, d. 2008). Acquired from UK trade. OCLC 29922535, 775016994. Not in Macro.

        Two photograph albums of a British WWI soldier in the Palestine Campaign. Palestine and Egypt, 1916-1918.

      1916. Two albums: 116 and 116 (together 232) black-and-white photographs (vintage prints), mostly c. 8 x 6 cm, set in window pages (square and round windows). Meticulously captioned throughout in white and yellow paint. Two photograph albums belonging to a British medical officer serving in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign during the latter part of the First World War. While a few of the images show the fading typical of private photo collections of the type, the majority has retained surprisingly crisp contrast, and many contain fine, well-differentiated detail in spite of the extreme lighting conditions under which they were taken, indicating an unusual proficiency of the photographer in exposing and developing his films. Edward Guest, who has signed his name to both inside front covers, served in the 2/1st East Anglian Field Ambulance, part of the 54th Division's Royal Army Medical Corps in the Territorial Force. The first album offers "photographs of the Suez Canal Zone. Ap[ri]l 1916 to Xmas 1916"; the second "contains views of the advance made by the British across the Sin[ai] desert into Palestine 1917-18". The albums are inscribed "Book 2" and "Book 3", respectively; a former "Book 1", which probably contained photographs of army training in Britain, is not preserved with the set. Among the diverse subjects are the Canal and its environs, the officers and men of the Field Ambulance, "light railways running to outposts", trenches, fortifications, and tent camps (with scenes of camp life), an Indian camel corps and transport camels used as ambulances, fishing from pontoon bridges, as well as views of the desert, an expedition into Sinai, shell-shocked men in Gaza, the ruins of shelled buildings, "Turks amo' train after naval gunnery", camping in a dried-up wadi, soldiers' graves in the desert, "laying telegraph wires" (by camel), "making a railway cutting", a railway accident, a cannon captured from the Turkish army, irrigation pumps and vegetation in Palestine, a "Beduin of Palestine", "Arab girls of P[alestine]", humongous desert insects, market scenes and merchants, grilling camel flesh, and ultimately, street scenes in Jerusalem, views of the city, the Mosque of Omar, and Jericho. - The 54th division was moved to the Egyptian Expeditionary Force under General Murray in 1916 and garrisoned the southern part of the Suez Canal. It later joined in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign, suffering heavy losses in the Second Battle of Gaza and fighting in the successful Third Battle of Gaza under General Bulfin. By the end of 1917 General Allenby's forces had taken Jerusalem.

Depuis les années 1960, c'est aussi un journal d'investigation qui révèle nombre d'affaires scandaleuses.Pour lhistorien Laurent Martin, ce journal très attaché à la protection des sources d'information des journalistes représente « une forme alternative de presse qui na guère déquivalents en France et dans le monde »Son nom fait malicieusement allusion au quotidien L'Homme libre édité par Georges Clemenceau, qui critiquait ouvertement le gouvernement de lépoque. Ce journal (en français familier, ce « canard ») dut alors subir la censure, et son nom fut changé en LHomme enchaîné. Sinspirant de ce titre, Maurice et Jeanne Maréchal décidèrent dappeler leur propre journal Le Canard enchaîné.La première série, faite avec des moyens limités, se termine au cinquième numéro.

Tirage époque papier argentique .s.d ( 1916 ). Epreuve argentique: 11x 19 cm. montée sur cartonnage présentation vert : 17,5 x 27 cm.cachet à froid sur le cartonnage . C. Motti . RARE.Nota: la collection de Victor Cessole a été donné à la ville de Nice, le 19 mars 1933, au musée Masséna. Il y a donc fort peu de documentsoriginaux en mains privées, car seuls quelques papiers de famille ou personnels et ouvrages réservés à ses proches ont été distraits de cette magnifique bibliothèque.( cf. articles de journaux époque. ) . Ici photo originale le représentant en Alpiniste ( studio C. Motti à Grasse ). Le Chevalier Victor Spitalieri De Cessole , famille originaire de Barcelonnette, ayant acquis le Comté de Cessole en Piémont au XVIII ème siècle.Le Chevalier Victor de Cessole ( 1859-1941 )" Ce nom de Victor de Cessole, né à Nice le 20 décembre 1859, est connu d'un petit nombre des spécialistes : alpinistes, bibliophiles, historiens. Ce personnage discret, aux idées d'avant-garde, a cependant doté sa région d'un équipement promis à connaitre une grande expansion : les sports d'hiver. En 1889, il rejoint le Club alpin français (CAF) de Nice, puis découvre les sommets aux alentours de Saint-Martin-Vésubie. Le mont Clapier, la cime du Gélas et la cime de la Malédie sont rapidement vaincus. Vient alors la systématisation dans la conquête des sommets des Alpes-Maritimes et de l'Argentera, suivie d'hivernales à partir de 1895. Accompagné d'un guide (le plus fréquemment Jean Plent) dans ses expéditions, il réalise de nombreuses premières. Président du Club Alpin Français, section des Alpes Maritimes, durant 32 ans, il est l'auteur de 7200 clichés pris sur le terrain avec un matériel lourd et encombrant. Toutes ces vues, reproduites parfois dans la revue du CAF, mais le plus souvent inédites, présentent chacune un grand intérêt. Deux pôles principaux se dégagent de l'action de Victor de Cessole : le création des refuges ainsi que l'introduction du ski dans le Haut-Pays Niçois.Il crée en 1909 le "Ski Club des AlpesMaritimes", et organise la même année un concours de ski à Turini Camp d'Argent avec la participation du 6ème Bataillon de Chasseurs Alpins. il sera aussi l'initiateur en 1930 de la création des secours en montagne dans le département niçois. Homme d'une grande bonté et d'une humanité sans faille, il s'éteint à Nice le 23 janvier 1941 ayant légué en 1933 sa précieuse bibliothèque au Musée Masséna." ( histoire du ski dans les Alpes Maritimes.) Victor de Cessole recevra de nombreux honneurs. Il est notamment fait officier de la Légion d'honneur en avril 1936. En hommage à l'œuvre du Chevalier, un pic de 2 915 m d'altitude dans le Mercantour, gravi par ce dernier en 1901, et alors anonyme, porte son nom.Un boulevard porte également son nom à Nice Nord.Une course ski - Alpinisme dans le Mercantour porte son nom " le Trophée Victor de Cessole ". parfait état.

        History of the First Regiment Minnesota Volunteer Infantry 1861-1864. With maps and illustrations

      Easton & Masterman, printers, Stillwater, Minn 1916 - First edition, 8vo, pp. [1], 508; frontispiece portrait of Gov. Alexander Ramsey, 5 other portraits, 1 plate showing 3 portraits (including Christopher B. Heffelfinger - see below), 4 plates of monuments, 2 folding maps, and 1 map in the text; original blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine; cracking in the cloth in the top half of the upper joint; hinges cracked; all else very good and sound. This copy with an important inscription: "James Ford Bell, Jr. from Grandmother Heffelfinger, August 14, 1916." James Ford Bell, Jr. was the eldest son of the founder of General Mills, and what is now the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota. James, Jr. was known locally as the CEO of Red Owl Food Store chain, and was also a noted conservationist. His "Grandmother Heffelfinger" was the wife of Christopher B. Heffelfinger, one of the authors of this book, who from 1861 through 1864 served in Company D of the famous First Minnesota Infantry Regiment, rising in rank from sergeant to captain shortly after the Battle of Gettysburg. After serving the full term of his three-year enlistment, Heffelfinger was mustered out at Fort Snelling in May 1864. After a brief appointment as a relief agent in the United States Sanitary Commission in 1864, he re-enlisted in April 1865 and was appointed a major in the First Minnesota Regiment of Heavy Artillery. Heffelfinger died in 1915 while this book was about to go to press, although he did read through the manuscript and made suggestions "which have been adopted in the text as it now appears." Searles, Taylor, Heffelfinger, and two others (also deceased) were the members of the "Coville Commission" who had charge of the preparation of this history. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A very good copy, dustjacket art pasted in at front endpapers. An extremely early outing for our Jungle Lord, as this is only the third novel to feature the character Tarzan. Unlike the later entries, this title has no list of other works by Burroughs at the end. From humble beginnings would come great things, as dozens of later Tarzan stories would prove. In time Burroughs hero would become one of the best loved characters in all of modern literature.
