        L'Appel du Sol

      1916Paris, Calmann-Levy, 1916. 115 x 191 mm, 302 pp. Reliure à la Bradel, papier vélin à coin. Pièce de titre grenat, tête dorée, couvertures et dos conservés. EDITION ORIGINALE, après 10 exemplaires sur Hollande. Joint une lettre autographe signée de l'auteur [à Rachilde] : " [...] de ma pièce, qui est mauvaise et de la vôtre, qui est admirable. [...] Le "Vendeur de Soleil" est une des choses les plus puissantes que je connaisse dans sa sobriété, il évoque toute la misère humaine, avec le réconfort et le vide de l'illusion. C'est d'une ironie féroce, et qui fait vivre toute la douleur et le néant...". Adrien BERTRAND : Né à Nyons, il rejoint très tôt Paris, publie deux volumes de vers et fonde à vingt ans la revue "Les Chimères". Antimilitariste, il rejoint les troupes sans sourciller et se conduit même en héros lorsqu'il tue six Allemands croisés par hasard. Blessé, en Lorraine, par un éclat d'obus, il s'éteint doucement, mais résiste assez pour terminer "L'Appel du sol", prix Goncourt 1916. Il s'éteint le 18 novembre 1917. Ce titre fait parti de notre catalogue "ECRIVAINS MORTS A LA GUERRE" disponible en version électronique sur simple demande.

        Meine Erlebnisse in Deutsch-Südwestafrika, 1913 - 1916. Tagebuchblätter.

      Bonn, Schergens, 1916. - Original-Broschur, 8°, 112 Seiten, 1 Karte, Frontispiz und 16 photographische Abbildungen, Einband abgegriffen (s. Bild), Schnitt fleckig, sonst gutes Exemplar. Vorwort: Im Juni 1913 fuhr ich nach Deutsch-Südwest-Afrika zum Besuch meiner Kinder, die auf der Farm Lievenberg bei Otjimbingwe wohnen. Am 1. August 1914 stand ich reisefertig zur Rückfahrt nach Deutschland. Durch Ausbruch des Krieges wurde ich daran gehindert. Es blieb mir nichts anderes übrig, als abzuwarten, bis der Krieg beendet sei oder eine Gelegenheit zur Rückfahrt sich biete. Während dieser Wartezeit hatte ich reichlich Gelegenheit den Gang der Dinge in unserer Kolonie zu beobachten und das Ergebnis in meinen Tagebüchern niederzulegen. Meine frühere Sympathie für das Burenvolk habe ich dabei völlig eingebüßt und deshalb beschlosssen, durch Veröffentlichung eines Teiles meiner Tagebücher den Raubzug der Buren durch Deutsch-Südwestafrika in das richtige Licht zu stellen.

        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." Composer Biographies on Hal Leonard Corporation online.. 1 page. Folio (ca. 279 x 215 mm.). N.d. In black ink. 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 photostated. 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.

        Photograph Collection Documenting the 13th Cavalry Regiment on the Mexican Border

      Columbus, New Mexico, 1916. Photographs. Very Good. A collection of 10 photographs showing F Troop of the 13th Cavalry Regiment on the Mexican Border in the vicinity of Columbus, New Mexico sometime between 1912 and 1921. Photographs are backstamped, "Fox-Tone/Print/Fox Co./San Antonio, Tex." A unique collection of scarce photographs showing early 20th century cavalry life on the Mexican border. The 13th Cavalry was assigned to the Army's El Paso Border Patrol in 1912 and headquartered at Columbus, New Mexico. Its patrol area covered about 65 miles of the border between the towns of Noria in the east and Hermanas in the west. The regiment was truly a field unit, and no buildings were constructed for its use until late in 1914. F Troop was initially stationed at Culbertson's Ranch on the Mexican border, fifty miles south of Hachita, however by early 1916 it had relocated to Columbus to join with the Headquarters and six other regimental troops. On 9 March 1916, Pancho Villa launched a surprise raid on Columbus with a force of well over 500 horsemen in an attempt to steal money, supplies, horses, and arms for his revolutionary Army of the North. Although the Villistas were initially successful, the 13th Cavalry and armed townsfolk soon repulsed the Mexicans who retreated back across the border to what they presumed to be a safe haven. Unfortunately for the Villistas, two of the regiment's troops (as in company-size cavalry units and not individual soldiers) disregarded the standing rules of engagement and charged into Mexico in hot pursuit, caught the fleeing force after a chase of fifteen miles, and inflicted heavy casualties upon it. Within a week, General Pershing (who had been stationed at El Paso) organized an expeditionary force of 10,000 including the 13th Cavalry and launched an eleven-month campaign 350 miles deep into Mexico. Although Villa was not captured, Pershing's force destroyed the operational capability of his army and secured the border. Following the expedition, the 13th Cavalry returned to its garrison in Columbus. Five of these photographs show F Troop in various mounted formations. Two of the photographs show the troop's mules and supply wagon, and one photograph shows the troop engaged in mounted marksmanship training. The collection includes two additional Real Photo Postcards of I Troop of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, which patrolled the border between El Paso and Presidio, Texas.

        BIOLOGIE DER ETHIK [WARMLY INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO ISRAEL ZANGWILL]

      Leipzig : B. Elischer, 1916. 1st Edition. Original Boards. 8vo. 224 pages ; 20 cm. In German. Title translates into English as, ?Biology of Ethics. ? This copy is inscribed by Nordau to Israel Zangwill in August 1922 on the first page, ?to my (dear) friend Israel Zangwill, (fondly) yours, M. Nordau. Paris August 19th 1922.? Zangill, Nordau, and Herzl were chums; a recent article on Zangwill in the Times of Israel noted that ?Zangwill made the jump into journalism and at the same time began his involvement with Jewish emancipation. He met and became fast friends with his fellow writers, Theodor Herzl and Max Nordau, even hosting Herzl in London at the turn of the century? (August 28, 2015) . Max Nordau (1849-1923) was a co-founder of the World Zionist Organization. He was a political Zionist, not a cultural or religious Zionist, having ceased being an observant Jew at eighteen, instead becoming a "militant naturalist and evolutionist, " and making his fame with Die Conventionellen Luegen der Kulturmenschheit, first published in 1883. Also at eighteen, he started his career in journalism, on the staff of the Pester Lloyd. While condemning modern culture and politics, the situation of the Jewish people was never far from Nordau's mind. He met Theodor Herzl in 1982, and soon after began discussing the possibility of a Jewish state with him. He was vice president of the First through Sixth Zionist Congresses, and president of the Seventh through Tenth. (EJ, 2007) ?Zangwill was a British author at the forefront of cultural Zionism during the 19th century, he was a close associate of Theodor Herzl. He later rejected the search for a Jewish homeland and became the prime thinker behind the territorial movement. ? (Wikipeida, 2016) SUBJECTS: Ethics. Evolutionary. Some browning. Smudges to the words ?dear? and ?fondly? in the inscription. Oveall about very good condition. (SPEC-42-25)

A near fine copy. housed in a fleece-lined, blue cloth slipcase."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.

      Toronto: McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, 1916. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding/no dust jacket. Signed. A presentable copy of Lucy Maud Montgomery's eighth book.

The title poem "The Watchman" was read at Montgomery's funeral. One of the more difficult of her books to obtain in decent condition. Signed by L. M. Montgomery on the front free endpaper. There is just a trace of rubbing to the spine, and very scattered foxing. Blue cloth binding stamped in gilt which has darkened. Very Good binding / no dust jacket.

The rarest or second rarest since 1900. The lettering is always an issue on 1916s , i guess they were rationed on the gold leaf in 1916, however the front board has very good gilt for a 1916. The spine is faded and no dot after the year which is correct. Small name to first page corner. The boards are very good a small lifting of the cloth for 1cm by 3cm on the front if being picky and a dot mark to the rear boards but they are nice. Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy! Amazingly clean inside including the yellow pastedowns and photoplate. Minimal foxing. No restoration. A lovely book. Rare,

        The Watchman and Other Poems

      Toronto: McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, 1916. First Edition. Hardcover. Good+. xii, 159 p. Green cloth hardcover has ring mark on front board, minor discolouration. Pencil signature of former owner on front endpaper. Ink marks on Acknowledgments page. Minor soiling within. The only volume of poetry that Lucy Maud Montgomery produced. This was her first work published by Canadian publisher McClelland, Goodchild and Stewart, and she was probably attracted to them because of their willingness to issue a collection of her poems. M.G.&S. may have agreed to publish this book as a way of luring her away from her Boston publisher, who had refused even to consider this project. All these poems were previously published in magazines.

        Goliath and David.

      London: Chiswick Press,, [1916]. Octavo, pp. 20. Original plain red wrappers. Wrappers a little creased and faded to edges, a few faint spots to contents. An excellent copy. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Graves's father to Henry Newbolt (1862-1938), the English poet and writer, on the title page: "Sir Henry Newbolt, from his admirer the author, via his father Alfred Perceval Graves. March 9th, 1917. Captain, 3rd Batt., Royal Welch Fusiliers." At the time of publication, February 1917, Graves was recuperating from bronchitis, first at Somerville College, Oxford, and then at Harlech, where he wrote to Sassoon, who had helped him edit and distribute the book, on 26 March 1917: "Dear old Sassons, please forgive my not writing: it has been one of the worst symptoms of my late collapse that I haven't been able to make up my mind to start or finish the most pressing things, and the correspondence about Goliath and David has been most exacting." At the start of the First World War, Newbolt and other leading British writers were recruited into the War Propaganda Bureau (WPB), which was formed to help maintain public opinion in favour of the war effort. Two hundred copies of this early privately printed work, the author's second publication, were produced in late 1916 and distributed early in 1917.

With 16 plates and external fold-out map. Good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Only slightly foxed. Probably the author's own copy with underlining and annotations with penciled, manuscript corrections throughout the book Brockbank was born into a wealthy Mancunian Quaker steel family in 1870, and was educated at Cambridge. He made several trips to the Middle East in search of the ?Holy Land? of the scriptures, on this occasion spending ?exactly five weeks and a day under canvas in the Desert of the Exodus and Arabia, and during the time covered 400 miles on camel and 700 miles on horseback?, from Port Said to Jerusalem. Despite Brockbank?s evangelicalism ? he founded a working-class chapel, Ivy Cottage, at Didsbury in 1893 which still thrives today ? his diary-form narrative is more chattily descriptive than preachy, and is much enhanced by the plates from the author?s own photographs. An interesting and well-produced privately-published travel journal.

        W B Yeats: Signed Quotation from one of his Poems

      1916 - Autograph album containing numerous autographs including a signed quotation from W B Yeats: "Only the wasteful virtues earn the sun" W B Yeats April 25 1916. The quotation is from Yeats' own poem 'Responsibilities,' 1914 and is DATED ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE EASTER RISING, which only lasted for six days. At the time of the Rising, Yeats was staying at Iles Farm, Far Oakridge, near Stroud, Gloucestershire, the home of the artist William Rothenstein (later Sir William). Yeats knew personally many of the leaders of the Rising and wrote the poem 'Easter 1916' a few months later. Below this is a quotation from Ben Johnson, dated on the same day, by Lalla Vandervelde, wife of the Belgian statesman Emile Vandervelde. Lalla Vandervelde organised séances and had met Yeats through their mutual interest in spiritualism. According to Yeats' biographer R F Foster they 'had a dalliance.' Her memoirs are entitled 'Monarchs and Millionaires' (Thornton Butterworth, 1925.) The third inscription on the page is a quotation from Dante by Percy Dearmer, author of The Parson's Handbook and musical editor of The English Hymnal (1906) and Songs of Praise (1926). The last signature on the page is of the novelist John Galsworthy, signed at Far Oakridge, where he was a frequent guest of William Rothenstein. Other signatures in the album date from 1895 to 1920 and include Tita Brand and Violet V Boucher, actresses; Field-Marshall George Stuart White, VC, hero of Ladysmith, awarded the VC during the Indian Mutiny; Theo Marzials, eccentric poet, one page poem; Eugen Sandow, strongman; Max Beerbohm, cartoonist, with a drawing of the prime minister; Horace G Hutchinson, golf writer; Emile Vandervelde, Belgian statesman; a drawing by J Maurice Rothenstein (son of William and later a director of the Tate Gallery) is loosely inserted; and there are several inscriptions from soldiers wounded at Mons, Cambrai and Ypres. The album is bound in brown cloth with an ornate gilt cover, patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. Front hinge is cracked else condition is very good. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
