        Scarce Autograph Letter Signed, in German, on small 8vo stationery card, "Sköien near Kristiania," n.d. but most likely late 1916

      - Important for its art association, in our letter Munch requests a subscription to the new art magazine "Das Kunstblatt" which published an article about him in its first issue. At the end of our art association letter, he signs in full, "Edvard Munch." Translated in full, "Dear Sir, I would like to subscribe to Kunstblatt [Art Journal] for one year and would like to start my subscription with the first issue. Respectfully, Evard Munch Sköien near Kristiania." "Das Kunstblatt" is a German art magazine, published in Weimar by Paul Westheim from 1917 until 1933. It was an important and influential periodical on contemporary art. The first issue came out in January of 1917 and in it was an article on Munch written by Gustav Schiefler, with whom Munch had a correspondence over a long period of time, from 1902 to 1935. Schiefler wrote the authoritative catalogue of Munch's graphic work, "Verzeichnis des Graphischen Werks Edvard Munchs bis 1906) (published in Berlin in 1907). Munch's request to "start my subscription with the first issue" suggests that he was writing just before the publication of the first issues which was in January of 1917, hence the date of this letter being late 1916 or possibly very early 1917. That, in addition to his having purchased and moved into his home at Ekely at Skoien near Kristiania in 1916. Munch bought the Ekely property at Skoien (or Skoyen) on the outskirts of Oslo which was, at the time, called Kristiana. It was called Kristiana and spelled with the "K"from 1877 until 1925 when it became known as Oslo. He lived at Ekely for the rest of his life. It was also in 1916 that the decorations for the University Aula were completed, at which point Munch began to have large outdoor studios built on his property for his large paintings. According to Wikipedia, Munch built onto Ekely to the point of it being a nearly self-sufficient estate. Munch letters are scarce. Sehr geehrter Herr Ich möchte gern auf Kunstblatt für ein Jahr abonnieren und möchte auch gern der Abonnement schon erste Monat anfangen. Mit vorzüglicher Hochachtung Edvard Munch Sköien n Kristiania ------ Dear Sir, I would like to subscribe to Kunstblatt [Art Journal] for one year and would like to start my subscription with the first issue. Respectfully, Evard Munch Sköien near Kristiania. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed ("Theodore Roosevelt"; 2 holograph corrections)

      1916 - In blue fountain pen ink on printed Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y. letterhead, February 3, 1916. 10" x 7". 2 separate pages (recto only). With the original typed mailing envelope, with a 2 cent stamp and postmarked New York, with Rangoon censor stamp and Rangoon backstamp of March 19, 1916. Very good. To Mr. L.H. Mosier, Esq. American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, Burmese Department, Pyinmana [Burma]. "My dear Mr. Mosier:-- Thank you for that very interesting account of your tiger experience. You ask me three questions: First, - Can I believe the Story? Most emphatically, yes! You tell it with convincing truthfulness. Any man experienced both in men and in animals, and any writer of his own ('his own' holograph addition) adventures, will realize that your story is true, from your account. Second. You ask me do I believe it can be accounted for without acknowledging supernatural intervention. Most emphatically, yes! It does not even suggest anything supernatural. Indeed, the part that you consider most wonderful is by no means the most wonderful part. You describe the tiger as fleeing from you when a number of your friends and yourself ran after him, just subsequent to his killing the buffalo calf. There is nothing extraordinary in this. On the contrary, I think that probably nine times out of ten, - certainly twice out of three times, - the ordinary tiger or lion, under such circumstances, would have acted exactly as this beast acted. It was, of course, a dangerous thing for you to do, simply because there was the one chance in ten, or one in three, that the tiger would not behave as his kind ordinarily do behave. But, where I have been in Africa, I have often known natives, when several of them were together, to run up and scare a lion from his freshly killed prey. Third, - You ask me if I believe it to be a miraculous intervention. For the reasons above, I do not think there is anything miraculous about it. The really extraordinary fact was the fact that the tiger repeatedly came back to the remains of the calf, even after he had been so terribly shot. This also is not unparalleled, although very rare. Thanking you, I am, Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt." An experienced big-game hunter, former President Theodore Roosevelt responds to the first hand account of a Burmese tiger hunt and his own knowledge and expertise. Roosevelt had already made his yearlong African hunting and scientific expedition (March, 1909-March, 1910) and had explored the River of Doubt on a seven-month, 1,500 mile expedition in S. America (October, 1913-May, 1914). He had also published a number of books on the subject: Life Histories of African Game Animals and Through the Brazilian Wilderness (both 1914). Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), author, statesman, and explorer; 26th President of the United States (1901-09). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Androcles and the Lion, Overruled, Pygmalion

      New York: Bretano's, 1916. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of the first American edition, first printing, of these three Plays in book form in the Publisher's original green cloth (modest rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, slight loss to the spine label but with "Androcles" and the balance of the often sun-faded spine label remaining quite bright) in a Very Good example of the quite scarce dust jacket (general wear and tear, staining and some surface loss to the spine, tide mark to the lower spine and lower panels adjacent to the spine tail); a collection of three Shaw plays, including his famous Play "Pygmalion" which first reached the stage in 1913 and features Professor Henry Higgins who bets with a fellow scholar that he, Higgins, could train a poor flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her proper English and manners including by changing her pronunciation to that used in England's High Society. Shaw's Higgins character was inspired by a number of British professors of phonetics including Alexander Melville Bell, Alexander J. Ellis, Tito Pagliardini, and, most importantly, by the cantankerous Henry Sweet. The work was adapted by Lerner and Lowe for a stage musical titled "My Fair Lady" which then provided the basis for the 1964 film of the same name starring Audrey Hepburn (whose singing voice was provided by Marni Nixon) as Eliza Doolittle, Rex Harrison as Professor Henry Higgins, Stanley Holloway as Alfred P. Doolittle, Wilfrid Hyde-White as Colonel Hugh Pickering, Gladys Cooper as Mrs. Higgins, and Jeremy Brett as Freddy Eynsford-Hill (whose singing voice was provided by Bill Shirley). The film won eight Academy Awards ("Oscars"), including those for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director. George Bernard Shaw won the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature for his work "... marked by both idealism and humanity, its stimulating satire often being infused with a singular poetic beauty". This first American edition in book form was published prior to the publication of the first UK edition and, in our experience, copies of this TRUE FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM COMPLETE WITH THE DUST JACKET are SURPRISINGLY SCARCE.

        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." 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. A unique collection of scarce photographs showing early 20th century cavalry life on the Mexican border.

        Woodrow Wilson Protests the Sinking of Lusitania & Threatens to Break Diplomatic Relations – About a Year Before America Enters WW I

      Washington, D.C. 1916 - Signed Pamphlet. Address of the President of the United States Delivered at a Joint Session of the Two Houses of Congress, April 19, 1916.Washington, D.C., ca April 19, 1916. Bound in blue cloth boards with titled spine with several blank leaves. Spine cracked but binding intact, very minor marginal tear to title page, other pages lightly toned with a light vertical crease but clean overall. 7 pp., 5 3/4 x 9 in. "Again and again the Imperial German Government has given this Government its solemn assurances that" passenger ships would not be subject to sudden attack without any warning, "and yet it has again and again permitted its undersea commanders to disregard those assurances with entire impunity. Great liners like the Lusitania and the Arabic and mere ferryboats like the Sussex have been attacked without a moment's warning, sometimes before they had even become aware that they were in the presence of an armed vessel of the enemy, and the lives of non-combatants, passengers and crew, have been sacrificed wholesale, in a manner which the Government of the United States cannot but regard as wanton and without the slightest color of justification."Wilson resolved "to say to the Imperial German Government that if it is still its purpose to prosecute relentless and indiscriminate warfare against vessels of commerce by the use of submarines, notwithstanding the now demonstrated impossibility of conducting that warfare in accordance with what the Government of the United States must consider the sacred and indisputable rules of international law and the universally recognized dictates of humanity, the Government of the United States is at last forced to the conclusion that there is but one course it can pursue; and that unless the Imperial German Government should now immediately declare and effect an abandonment of its present methods of warfare against passenger and freight carrying vessels this Government can have no choice but to sever diplomatic relations with the Government of the German Empire altogether."Historic BackgroundBerlin responded with revised instructions to its U-Boat commanders not to sink passenger vessels without warning. However, in January 1917, Germany resumed unrestricted submarine attacks. After news that Germany had invited Mexico to declare war on the United States (the notorious Zimmerman Telegram), on April 2, 1917, Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. Congress obliged him three days later.TranscriptionGentlemen of the Congress:A situation has arisen in the foreign relations of the country of which it is my plain duty to inform you very frankly.It will be recalled that in February, 1915, the Imperial German Government announced its intention to treat the waters surrounding Great Britain and Ireland as embraced within the seat of war and to destroy all merchant ships owned by its enemies that might be found within any part of that portion of the high seas, and that it warned all vessels, of neutral as well as of belligerent ownership, to keep out of the waters it had thus proscribed or else enter them at their peril. The Government of the United States earnestly protested. It took the position that such a policy could not be pursued without the practical certainty of gross and palpable violations of the law of nations, particularly if submarine craft were to be employed as its instruments, inasmuch as the rules prescribed by that law, rules founded upon principles of humanity and established for the protection of the lives of non-combatants at sea, could not in the nature of the case be observed by such vessels. It based its protest on the ground that persons of neutral nationality and vessels of neutral ownership would be exposed to extreme and intolerable risks, and that no right to close any part of the high seas against their use or to expose them to such risks could lawfully be asserted by any belligerent government. The law of nat. (See website for full description)

      London: St. Catherine Press, 1916. Gilt polished buckram, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Light foxing, a number of insertions (see below), otherwise a very good, bright copy. First edition (five hundred copies were printed). With the July 1916 ownership inscription on the front free endsheet of Sir Lees Knowles, 1st Baronet. The printed dedication by Douglas for this work is "To His Friend L-K This Breathless Catalogue." Knowles has signed that page again, and tied his name to the initials with asterisks. Affixed to the front free endsheet is a typed label, "With the Author's Compliments," as well as a small press clipping about "Games of our boyhood," captioned in ink by Knowles. Affixed to the front and rear endsheets, along with their manuscript envelopes, are two fine autograph letters, signed, from Douglas to Knowles, Battersea 22 July 1916 (2pp. closely written on folded quarto lettersheet, affixed in front) and Capri 1 July 1916 (one full closely written page on quarto lettersheet, folded, in the back). The book was published in July. In the earliest letter, from Capri, ca. 250 words, Douglas writes in part: "I hear that my little book on games is out - or nearly so. I told them to send you a copy. I hope you will like it. Of course, there may be a little further delay, but I don't think so. Capri is very quiet. The War is doing them a lot of good. Bankruptcies all around. They are losing their swelled heads." He gives an account of several mutual friends, and continues: "There are hardly any foreigners -- a few Russians. Many hotels closed up. A great peace has descended upon the place. Birds plentiful ...." He indicates he is writing, "...but get on awfully slowly." He closes, "with kind regards to Lady Nina Yours sincerely Norman Douglas." The later letter, from Battersea, ca 150 words, states, in part: "I am glad you liked those copies of the book -- they are only samples; of course you are going to have as many copies as ever you care to possess ... I have not seen the book at all - know nothing as to how the binding, paper, etc etc turned out. I hope they put in the little dedicatory page to you?" The second half of the letter is occupied with news of mutual friends and such. He closes again, "Kind regards to Lady Nina. Yours ever Norman Douglas." Knowles (1857 - 1928) was a barrister, military historian and conservative politician. At times, he commanded different battalions of the Lancashire Fusiliers. He endowed the Lees Knowles Lectureship on military science at Trinity College, and among his many publications was THE BRITISH IN CAPRI , 1806 - 1808 (London: John Lane, 1918). Laid in are several clippings, including a review of this book from the MANCHESTER GUARDIAN, and tipped in is a receipt for two copies from W.H. Smith made out to Knowles. Douglas's assertion in the letter that he had not even seen the book at the time this copy was sent to Knowlton suggests that if there is an actual inscribed presentation copy from Douglas to Knowles, it will be later than this copy.
