Merritt, A[braham]
The letters have usual fold creases and some light rumpling, but,. except 24 May 1916 letter which has marginal loss at upper left. corner, all are in very good to fine condition. A detailed calendar. is available upon request. (#111986). A revealing look at Merritt as he went about his day job as newspaper editor for a major national weekly. Merritt's newspaper career began when he was 18 as a cub reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer. He wound up as assistant editor, then editor, of THE AMERICAN WEEKLY, a sensationalistic Sunday supplement for the Hearst newspapers. It had a circulation of about 7,500,000 copies while Merritt worked there, a hugely successful figure for that time (or this), which was touted on the paper's letterhead as the "Greatest Circulation in the World." His writing style in these brief business letters is breezy, slangy and hard as nails, the voice of the typical American newspaperman of this period, when the city newspaper was a glamorous thing, mythologized in countless Hollywood movies. (Among other heroes who worked for a newspaper in this period was Clark Kent.) In his spare time, Merritt managed to write and publish half a dozen novels that won him a reputation as "the greatest fantasy writer of modern times" (Bleiler, Supernatural Fiction Writers, p. 836). Since then, "in the fields of science fiction and fantasy there is probably no other great reputation of the past that has suffered as much as that of A. Merritt" (ibid.). Harre also worked as a journalist off and on, in between writing a handful of novels (including two that were … [Click Below for Full Description]

La Guardia, Fiorello [1882 - 1947].
1916 - 1941 1916 - LaGuardia, or "Little Flower," is widely regarded as one of the best mayors in New York City history, whose tenure redefined the office. He was the 99th mayor of the "Big Apple", serving his populace from 1934 - 1945. For those twelve years, the 5 foot 2, sometimes belligerent, chief executive dominated life in New York City as if he was 7 foot 2. Unlike many politicians today, he fulfilled many of his pledges, especially the ferreting out of corruption in the city's government. Such earned him a reputation for placing the city's interests ahead of political considerations, and in the same vein, although technically a Republican, he worked closely with the New Deal administration of President Franklin Roosevelt to secure funding for large public works projects. These federal subsidies enabled New York City to create a transportation network the envy of the world, and to build parks, low-income housing, bridges, schools, & hospitals. Furthermore, he achieved the unification of the city's rapid transit system, a goal that had long eluded his predecessors, and he reformed the structure of city government by pushing for a new City Charter. He presided over construction of New York City's first municipal airport on Flushing Bay, later to become his namesake. As a result of all his efforts, LaGuardia's psychological effect on New York City was nothing short of profound, restoring faith in city government by demanding excellence from civil servants. Many politicans today could learn from his example, and we, the American people, would be fortunate to have such a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Présentation extensive de cette plantation d'hevea brasilliensis, située dans les environs de Bandung (Java Ouest), fondée onze ans auparavant et dirigée par un Français. L'organisation de la plantation, les méthodes de culture, le processus de fabrication et de conditionnement du caoutchouc, les divers aménagements de la plantation, la construction de villages (kampung) indigènes, les diverses expérimentations dans la culture de l'hévéa menées sur la plantation et les rendements obtenus sont présentés avec la plus grande rigueur. Les photographies originales qui ornent ce rapport - curieusement édité mais sans doute tiré à très petit nombre - constituent une sorte de reportage sur la vie d'une plantation dans les Indes néerlandaises du début du XXe siècle. Quelques corrections et ajouts manuscrits, fort probablement de la main de l'auteur, tout au long du texte. Très bel exemplaire..

GRANT, Madison
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1916. First edition. A sound, very good copy with some light wear and a tiny hole at the edge of the first few leaves. A small note appears on the front pastedown in the hand of George Sarton: "from Mrs. Backlund, Cambridge, Mas. 1805. G.S." Below this is the ownership signature of Ashley Montagu and a small note in his hand: "Presented to me by George Sarton. A.M." A fascinating association. The most prestigious award of the History of Science Society, the Sarton Medal, is named after George Sarton, as one of the founders of the modern era in the history of science. He defined much of its content, suggested the basic questions and methods, and produced several books which are still worth consulting. He founded the journals Isis (in 1912) and Osiris (in 1936), and wrote extensively for them. He was, incidentally, the father of the poet and novelist, May Sarton. M.F. Ashley Montagu, a world-renowned anthropologist, was the foremost integrator and interpreter of sciences, and also became the most significant generalist of the 20th Century. He was also the editor of Studies and Essays in the History of Science and Learning Offered in Homage to George Sarton (New York, 1947). His association to this volume is particularly significant, as it must have influenced his first book, Man's Most Dangerous Myth: The Fallacy of Race, which demolished for the majority of his colleagues everywhere the scientific credibility of the concept of race.

Fortunino Matania
1916. Print. New. Fortunino Matania. Lithograph print by Fortunino Matania on Paper. SIGNED PRINT. Size: 15" x 10" (381mm x 254mm). One of a series of 12 artist proof signed prints produced for the Sphere & Tatler in 1916, 'With the British Army on the Western Front'. (The communication trench is the place which affords the opportunity for the display of all the sporting qualities of the British soldier. Much has already been written about these trenches and the various ways they are constructed. A guide is always required by a stranger entering these mazes. Unpleasant surprises crop up at many points. The sniper is a constant danger, and cover from the enemy's bullets scanty. In the drawing I show one of these trenches through which I myself passed. It is a long double wall of sand-bags from 3 feet to 4 feet high. The height of the sand-bags renders it advisable to proceed in a stooping fashion, bent almost double. Many of these trenches cannot be used during the day; in others you may even lead a pony through without undue danger. Outside in all directions there is the horror of war in full display. I saw the body of a horse which was slowly decomposing and sinking into the earth, yet it could not be removed, because it was certain death for anyone to attempt to remove it. An officer said to me, "If you are tired of life, try to reach it," and yet the body was only a few yards away. Soldiers are passing and repassing, perspiring, laughing, joking and teasing one another, whilst every now and then the noise is drowned by a voice, "Keep your head down, you d-----d fool" - F … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henri BARBUSSE
Flammarion, Paris,, 1916. 8vo., First Edition, endpapers spotted, page margins browned as usual; contemporary cloth, gilt back, a few gatherings sprung, two or three leaves chipped at fore-edges (not affecting text) else a very good copy of a notoriously fragile work. With the index at end as is proper. First edition of the greatest French novel of the Great War and winner of the Prix Goncourt.'No war book in any language, with the exception of 'All Quiet on the Western Front', has had the sale of 'Le Feu' (Falls, 'War Books').'Under Fire' is the spirit of the infantry war in France, the letter and the spirit of reality' (Henry Williamson, referring to the title of the English edition).It was published simultaneously in three states: two private limited issues (33 copies on Japon and 165 copies in holland) and the trade edition as here. The fact that the trade edition was issued as a flimsy paperback means that it is scarcely ever found in really good condition. At least here it is complete and has been preserved in a [private] cloth binding of the period.Very scarce.Falls, p.263.

TARBELL, Ida M.
(1916). TARBELL, Ida M. SIGNED LETTER TO SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MCADOO, 1916, REFUSING A POSITION ON THE TARIFF COMISSION. One page, one side, 8 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches, blue personal stationery with Tarbell's address. Typed. Letter creased horizontally and vertically, two corners slightly creased. Overall very good condition. In this letter, dated December 30, 1916, Tarbell graciously declines the Secretary's proposal (via Wilson) that she serve on the Tariff Commission: "...I hope that you know that I do consider it a privilege and an honor ... I am not physically fit to undertake the work. I have held very confining positions for years, and recently have had to vary my work ... It only means, however, that I have had to seek a change of work, not that I am retired. As a matter of fact I was never working harder." Tarbell proposes that she might aid the Commission by "interpreting it to the public ... through my professional channels." She makes reference to her tariff work of a few years past, which left her "in a rather anarchist mood on the subject ... Still, if I do attempt to write or talk again on the subject, I shall, for the sake of the cause, sink my anarchism and be wise as a serpent." Tarbell's THE TARIFF IN OUR TIMES was published in 1911, and made investigation of how the tariff system benefited businesses rather than the public., Very Good
