(SUTHERLAND, Abby A.)
Ogontz, Pennsylvania: Ogontz School, 1916. 7/21/2015. Very Good. First edition. Tall octavo. 177, [3]pp. Illustrated with tipped-in gelatin silver photographs. Embossed white calf. Silk-lined endpapers. A couple of small scrapes on the boards, modest dampstain in margins of the first several leaves, the white boards predictably a bit soiled, a very good copy of a very elaborately prepared woman's school yearbook, with a separate portrait of each student tipped-in with signatures in facsimile, as well as other images of noted faculty, the campus, group shots, and activities. Otherwise blank pages in the rear for engagements, marriages, births, and deaths! The Ogontz School was an exclusive girl's college which used the estate of Jay Cooke as its campus. In the following year, 1917, the formidable headmistress Abby A. Sutherland (pictured in the book), purchased another track of land and moved the school (that year was also notable as Amelia Earhart joined the Senior Class, although she did not graduate). As deluxe a yearbook for a woman's college as we've seen.

Toroczkai-Wigand, Ede
Táltos, Budapest, 1916. First edition. Initials printed in red. In original illustrated hard paper. 29, (3) p. and 16 plates. In this work Toroczkai-Wigand gathers his knowledge on Transylvanian architecture and culture. Written in the dialect of Székely Land. He also formulates his own artistic ideas and identifies its sources with sixteen full page illustration of architectural drawings in the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style. Ede Toroczkai-Wigand (1869-1945) was a Hungarian architect and designer of decorative art. The thoughts of John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts Movement had a major influence on him. Toroczkai-Wigand had the idea that art, architecture, folk customs and language is a complex structure and this complexity and "holism" reflecting in the unique character of his works. Beside being a prolific architect and designer, who was awarded at many international exhibitions (Paris, 1900; Torino, 1902; St. Louis, 1904), Toroczkai-Wigand published bibliophilic books, partly on his art and partly about the art, architecture and the folk tales of the Székelys in Transylvania. In these publications he combined the content and the typography of the print into a special unity, in the manner of the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style.

Sterling, George
San Francisco: A.M. Robertson, 1916. This eclectic collection of verse is split into four parts. The first consists of 33 of the fantastic poems for which Sterling was so famous, followed by three poems on the Panama-Pacific Exposition and four personal poems, and concluding with 43 poems on the then-ongoing First World War. An Oakland contemporary of Joaquin Miller and Jack London, George Sterling (1869-1926) later became one of the first residents of Carmel and a leading supporter of the poetry of fellow bohemian Robinson Jeffers. Sterling is said to be the inspiration for two Jack London characters: Russ Brissenden in Martin Eden (1909) and Mark Hall in The Valley of the Moon (1913). Inscribed and dated in the year of publication by Sterling to Mary Elizabeth Fenn on the front flyleaf, with Fenn's bookplate on the front pastedown. Small octavo. Original green cloth binding, with gilt stamping. In the scarce dust jacket, which is a touch browned with just a hint of edgewear. Better than very good. Very good in Very good jacket.

PANKHURST, Adela.
Melbourne: The Women's Peace Army, 1916. Melbourne: The Women's Peace Army,, 1916. Second Edition. Octavo. Original buff printed wrappers. Spine ends chipped, wrappers a little soiled, book block edges spotted and contents evenly toned, overall a very good copy. First in book form, second overall, of this notably rare influential pacifist manifesto by the exiled and youngest daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, first published as a pamphlet of the same length the previous year. OCLC locates just four copies of the 1916 edition, all in Australia (National Library; State Library of NS Wales; University of Adelaide; Australian Defence Force Academy). The 1915 edition is markedly more common (eighteen listed on OCLC, six of which are outside Australia). Adela Constantia Mary Pankhurst Walsh (1885-1961) was the third daughter of Richard and Emmeline Pankhurst. Though her political views were at first aligned with her mother's and sisters' — at eighteen she was the youngest of the early members of the WSPU — Adela's criticism of her oldest sister Christabel's increasingly militant tactics while leading the organisation soon lead to irreconcilable differences. She was branded "a very black sheep" by Christabel, who is also quoted as saying "one of Adela is too many" in the middle sister Sylvia's memoir The Suffragette Movement. Although efforts were at first made to occupy her time elsewhere — a gardening course paid for by her mother, and a governess position attained in Switzerland — her family still viewed her and her socialist opinions as dangerously divisive to the cause.

[Moscow, 1916]. 10x6,5 cm. Fine, previous owner's ink stamp on the back side. From the collection of art critic Alexander Zavolokin (1951-2008). Extremely rare, survival of the time. The exhibition "Magazin" was organized by Vladimir Tatlin in 1916 in Moscow. It was held from March 19 to April 20 at Petrovka, 17, in the premises of a former store. Its exposition included 95 works, among the artists - L. Bruni, M. Vasilyeva, I. Klyun, V. Pestel', L. Popova, A. Rodchenko, N. Udal'tsova, A. Exter, V. Yustitsky, S. Dymshits-Tolstaya. One of the most important exhibitions of the early avant-garde. Tatlin exhibited reliefs and counter-reliefs, Bruni - reliefs, Popova, Udal'tsova and Pestel' - cubist works, Klyun - cubo-futuristic and alogical, Rodchenko - objectless compositions and graphics. For Rodchenko, the exhibition was a debut in the avantgarde movement Kazimir Malevich also participated in it, not with suprematist but cubo-futuristic works. By arranging this exposition, Tatlin intended to intercept the championship from Malevich (shortly before that in Petrograd, Malevich's Suprematist works created a splash at the "Last Futuristic Exhibition of Paintings "0, 10" ") and tried to demonstrate his influence on the exhibitors through their works: Bruni's "three-sided reliefs», according to Rodchenko's testimony, was a «broken barrel from under the cement and a glass punched by a bullet». Malevich and his followers were invited, but with the condition - do not exhibit suprematist works. The condition was met, but Malevich appeared on the opening with "0, 10" inscribed on his f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Winston S. Churchill
London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd., 1916. Third edition. Hardcover. This is an extraordinary copy – likely the best surviving example - of the Shilling Library edition of Churchill's first book. Bibliographically the third edition (after the first of 1898 and the second, Silver Library edition of 1899), this edition was billed as a “cheap edition” during the First World War - a momentous time for Churchill which saw him serve both in the Cabinet and on the Front. This edition is a small, attractive book measuring 6.25 x 4.25 inches, bound in a bright blue cloth with blind rule bordered front cover, gilt-printed spine, and illustrated endpapers. Six maps are retained from the first edition, and there are 383 pages of small type. The edition was diminutive and fragile, and surviving copies typically show pronounced wear, soiling, and toning. This copy is extraordinary first and foremost for retaining the extravagantly rare original dust jacket, which is printed in black and light yellowish on thin, white paper and features a striking black-and-white half-tone photograph of Churchill on the front face. We know of only four surviving dust jackets. This copy is by far the best of these four known examples, both the cleanest and the only one that is nearly complete. Losses are negligible - a .25 x 1 inch irregular chip at the upper front face, fractional chipping to a maximum depth of .125 inch at the base of the spine, and incidental loss the corners. The lower spine of the jacket carries two price reduction stickers, one atop the other, both obviously contemporary to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joyce, James
New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. First edition. A Near Fine copy with bright gilt on the spine and clean boards, minor wear at the crown. With slight separation at the final page, otherwise in excellent condition internally. 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. Near Fine. Near Fine.

(Photographs New York): 1916. Ca. 1916 - 1925. 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". Black flexible pebbled leatherette album covers, bound by black cord tie. Gilt "Photographs" stamped to front cover. Significant wear to covers (rubbing & chipping to edges of binding). Black leaves somewhat delicate, with light chipping to edges. Item #41500 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.

Graves, Robert
London: Privately Printed at the Chiswick Press. First edition of author's second book, published in 1916 in very small number. 8vo, plain red wraps, 20pp, about very good copy with some tiredness to the edges, faint soil, most minor paper loss at spine ends, with bookplate of Percy Withers (1867-1945) to verso of front wrap. Minor association copy: both Withers and Graves were alumni of Somerville College (Oxford), and while Withers made his living as a medic and GP, he had literary ambitions and was friendly with A. E. Housman, Yeats, Edmund Blunden, Max Beerbohm, William Rothenstein, John and Paul Nash, and Alice Meynell, and thus had plenty of chance to interact with Graves, but it is not clear that they figured strongly in each other's lives. Very Good.

No handwriting, no torn pages or dog ears. Immaculate. Ever New Stories for Children. A compilation of four of the stories from the Children's Red Book series (1908) and the Children's Stories That Never Grow Old book (1908), and also containing the four stories that were added to the series in 1915. Illustrated in color by John R. Neill. 6" wide, 7 3/4" tall, 1 1/8" thick. Editor: Mary Stone. Tan hardcover with color paste-on illustration on front cover, and a blank back cover. Blank endpapers. This book is extremely rare. It must have had a very limited printing, or perhaps it was never even released for publication and the only copies that remain are publisher's proofs. I haven't been able to research it very well because I could only find one of Neill's bibliographies that included this title. There are no records of it having ever been sold at auction (except for this one). Worldcat has only three copies listed worldwide; all three are in university special collections.

Harrison in an edition of 250 copies for distribution to noteworthy African sportsmen and other luminaries, including Theodore Roosevelt and Sir Alfred Pease." - Czech page 57. Harrison went on safari to Rhodesia in 1908 where he hunted with Finaughty's son. He met the old man and was given copies of the Rhodesian Journal where Finaughty recorded his escapades from 1864-1875. One chapter of the Rhodesian Journal was missing and is missing from the book. This one in the original brown boards, some soiling, with paper labels intact. Interior very good, no markings, foxing, or damage.

In the winter of 1866, he began hunting for ivory in Mashonaland and during the next five years is credited with killing over five hundred elephants.

Pelican Press, Romney Street, 1916. cream paper wraps inside gray paper d.w.with black lettering in decorative border. Printed in the 17th century Fell type at the Oxford University Press. Designed by Francis Meynell (founder of the Nonesuch Press) and Stanley Morison. An extremely rare, collectable item in near fine condition. In Stanley Morison's memorial lecture he writes "In July 1915 Pope Benedict had made an appeal to the nations to end the war. Francis seized on this to form his guild in order to make propaganda against the war he had always opposed. All its pamphlets were designed by Francis and issued from his house in Romney Street. The guild had a grand name but it never had more than seven members, two of them being Francis and Stanley Morison. 'I doubt' said Francis many years later, 'whether propaganda has ever had such fine printing and so little effect'." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Roccatagliata Ceccardi, Ceccardo (musica di Guido Dall’Orso; illustrazioni di Pipein Gamba)
s.l., s.i.e., (Genova, I.G.A.P., la stamperia), 1916, Prima edizione. Lieve abrasione al dorso e piega lungo l’asse centrale del volume, per il resto un ottimo esemplare, fresco e pulito. Libretto per una riduzione scenica tratta da Cervantes su testo di Roccatagliata e musicato da Guido Dall’Orso, andato in scena al Teatro Carlo Felice di Genova il 4 marzo 1916. Le illustrazioni in rosso di Pipein Gamba accompagnano il testo. L’opera fu stroncata dalla critica. Montale, all’epoca non ancora ventenne, cercò di sollevare dalle responsabilità Roccatagliata, i cui versi gli parvero superiori alla musica, nella sua recensione al «Mameli» di Leoncavallo, pubblicata sul Piccolo a fine aprile: «Abbiamo constatato, e purtroppo anche recentemente, quanto poco giovi a un mediocre musicista il gentile soccorso di una trama di dolci e canore sillabe [siano pur esse dettate dalla Musa al maggior Poeta e barocco, che l’Italia ha da molti anni prodotto». Rarissimo, soprattutto in queste condizioni. Montale, Il secondo mestiere, p. 893 in 16° oblungo, brossura illustrata; conserva il pergamino protettivo, pp. [44]. Prima edizione.
