Robert Frost
Mountain Interval Robert Frost New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1916 First U.S. edition, in dust jacket Condition: Very Good plus Jacket Condition: Very Good This is a jacketed first edition, first state of Frost's third published book - Frost's first book for which the U.S. edition takes precedence. "Mountain Interval, which appeared in November 1916, offered readers some of his finest poems, such as "Birches," "Out, Out--," "The Hill Wife," and "An Old Man's Winter Night." (ANB) The volume opens with the poem "The Road Not Taken." It was in 1916 that Frost was invited to deliver the Phi Beta Kappa poem at Harvard's Commencement (almost 20 years after he had dropped out) and was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. Condition is compelling, approaching near fine in a very good dust jacket. First state is confirmed by repetition of the sixth line on p.88 and the word 'Come,' instead of 'Gone,' on p.93. (Crane A4, p.21) The blue cloth binding is tight and beautifully bright and clean, with vivid spine and front cover gilt. Trivial wear is confined to extremities, with small bumps to the upper corners. The contents are likewise impressively clean. Mild differential toning to the pastedowns and endpapers corresponds to the jacket flaps. The ghost of an erased name and "Dec 1919" date on the front free endpaper is the only previous ownership mark. Spotting is primarily confined to the page edges, with only incidental intrusions into the blank inner margins. Dust jacket condition is impressive. Minor loss is confined to the spine ends and corners, to a maximum … [Click Below for Full Description]

Creighton, J.E., editor [Josiah Royce--Festschrift]
New York: Longmans, Green & Co, 1916. The binding of this blue leather-bound book is exceptionally attractive and makes me wonder if it was perhaps Royce's personal copy; he presented it "With Love" to L. P. Jacks shortly before his death. Lawrence Pearsall Jacks had been Royce’s student at Harvard and wrote his obituary for the "London Journal" the same year that this festschrift was published. There is a small scuff on the spine not affecting the bright gilt lettering; blue marbled endpapers; top edge gilt. [Please see multiple images of actual book.] Many interior leaves are toned but all are crisp and clean; there are two tiny tears at the top edge of page 285. Frontispiece portrait and one other of Royce at age twenty; bibliography assembled by Benjamin Rand; 294 pages. "It is interesting to note that these papers, although contributed by [those] who in some form acknowledge a debt of gratitude to Royce, many of whom have been his pupils, are largely critical as well as appreciative. It is doubtless true that although we may adopt labels like 'Idealism,' 'Pragmatism,' and 'Realism,' for rough classificatory purposes, yet philosophy does not tend to develop in this country in the form of closed schools. The influence of a teacher like Professor Royce, great as it has been and is, does not lead to the literal adoption of his doctrines, but manifests itself in stimulating and promoting the spirit of inquiry and of universality through which his own philosophy has been developed. This, indeed, has everywhere been characteristic of the influence of great philosophical teach … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alan Seeger
1916. Seeger, Alan. POEMS. With an Introduction by William Archer. 8vo cloth. NY: Scribner's, 1916. BAL 17433; Seeger's important first book was published posthumously in an edition of 3,000 copies. About fine in the rare dust jacket which is damp-stained along the bottom edge. Copies of this key World War I title in dust jacket are extremely rare. [LR] Originally priced in 1972 at $1500.00 The Dorothy Sturges - Mary Elizabeth Hudson copy, with their miniature engraved bookplates. A penciled note on the front free endpaper indicates that D.S. received the book in January 1917, as close to the publication date as any collector could wish for. Folded and laid into the book were five pages of typescript consisting of a three-page version of "An Ode in Memory of the American Volunteers Fallen for France 1914-1915-1916." This is apparently the last poem Seeger wrote, and it is the last one included in Poems. The published version carries the note: "To have been read before the statue of Washington and Lafayette in Paris on Decoration Day, May 30, 1916." Archer's introduction mentions the circumstances surrounding the writing of the poem and the fact that Seeger was not given leave from the front to attend the celebration and read this piece which he was asked to write. A carbon typescript copy of a two-page letter from Seeger to a Mr. Prince, probably a journalist for The New York Herald, is also present, folded with the poem and inserted into the book. It reveals Seeger's bitterness because he wrote the poem and was not allowed to read it. Seeger's letter concludes: "If you do … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Maritime Photograph Album]. Levick, Edwin - Photographer.
(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.

Joyce, James
New York: Huebsch, 1916. Hardcover. First Edition. Very Good. First edition, first printing. Original publisher's blue cloth, blind-stamped front cover and gilt spine. A tight and clean copy with some rubbing to edges and spine ends, and some toning to spine. Internally fine and free of any marks, writing or bookplates. A very good copy of the author's first novel. Housed in a custom folding case. Slocum & Cahoon A11. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is Joyce's first novel and is virtually a complete rewrite of his abandoned novel, Stephen Hero. The semi-autobiographical text was first published serially in twenty-one monthly installments in the British literary magazine The Egoist from February 1914-September 1915. It was first published in book form in 1916; this copy precedes the first English edition by two months. Partially due to readers' critical reactions, many British publishers initially rejected Portrait, so it was first published in the United States. The plot tells of Stephen Daedalus, whose name alludes to both the Christian martyr Saint Stephen and the Greek mythological inventor Daedalus. It is a Künstlerroman, a subset of the bildungsroman genre, specific to the development of young artists. The novel is written in third-person with the spirit of first-person in Joyce's characteristic style of free indirect speech; Joyce's writing style matures along with Daedalus' own consciousness so that the sophistication of the narrator's voice mirrors the protagonist's level of awareness.

Hancock, H Irving
Altemus, 1916. Probably more accurately described as VG-/G+. This uncommon book from a very uncommon series looks rather good. The exterior has little wear to it--a slightly bumped upper front corner, lightly bumped head and heel of spine without fabric damage, a front panel that looks almost new (see photo). The book does have a slight lean. The interior is free of writing and other marks, with only a very few random small stains, none of which affect the text; pages are lightly toned but very flexible; the front hinge is strong, the rear hinge (see photo) has the paper over it torn, exposing the fabric hinge; that rear hinge is holding but tender. The jacket looks pretty good, with a tiny chip at the head of the spine and color wear on the front fold as well as on both sides of the spine; at the base of the front gutter, there is a 2-1/4" closed tear (it is not taped on either side of the jacket) with folds that cross the entire width of the front panel. The rear panel has what at first glance appears to be water damage, but the reverse side of the jacket shows no water damage, nor does the rear panel of the book show any such damage; I really do not know what that discoloration is from. A flawed book and jacket, but still very presentable and quite uncommon. [Attributes: Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Altemus, 1916. Best described as VG-/VG-. This last book in a very uncommon series looks good in spite of a slight lean and lightly bumped head and heel of spine--the front panel looks almost new, there is no fabric damage from the bumps, spine looks barely worn, there are no worn edges. The interior is clean--there is an inked quotation on the front paste down, an inked name on the FFEP, and a partially scratched out (only slight paper damage) name at the bottom of the FFEP. Paper is very flexible, there are no stains of any sort in the text, hinges are strong (paper over rear hinge is tearing but the hinge remains strong. The jacket looks quite good with small chips at the head and heel of the spine, a larger chip at the top of the rear panel, and several short (1/2" or less) closed edge tears with folds and several thin scrapes on the front panel (see photos).

Robert Frost
Mountain Interval Robert Frost New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1916 First U.S. edition Condition: Good plus This is the first edition, first printing, first state of Frost's third published book. Mountain Interval is Frost's first book for which the U.S. edition takes precedence, both A Boy's Will and North of Bostonhaving been first published in Great Britain. "Mountain Interval, which appeared in November 1916, offered readers some of his finest poems, such as "Birches," "Out, Out--," "The Hill Wife," and "An Old Man's Winter Night." (ANB) The volume opens with the poem "The Road Not Taken." It was in 1916 that Frost was made Phi Beta Kappa poet at Harvard and elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. This copy is in good plus condition. First state is confirmed by repetition of the sixth line on p.88 and the word 'Come,' instead of 'Gone,' on p.93. (Crane A4, p.21) Condition is very good plus. The blue cloth binding remains square and tight with deep, unfaded color and bright gilt. Notably, there is no fading or dulling to the spine, which is unusual for an unjacketed copy. We note only wrinkling and light wear to the spine ends, and a few spots of trivial staining and scuffing to the covers. The contents retain a crisp feel. Spotting appears primarily confined to the endpapers and page edges. The sole sign of previous ownership is the illustrated bookplate (featuring a book press) of Spruill and Sue Cook affixed to the front pastedown. The couple ran "Cook's School of Speech and Dance" in Texas and Spruill was also a college drama and English instructor. … [Click Below for Full Description]

17TH TERRITORIAL REGIMENT
1916. Journal du 17e Territorial. Roneographed newspaper. Folio. 4pp. Some darkening to lower portion of first page. Verdun, 1 April, Rare. OCLC lists copies only at the BNF and IWM. Printed in an edition of 150 copies, the paper is the usual jumble of jokes, songs, citations and promotions. Dated 1 April 1916, this issue appeared during the second phase of the Battle of Verdun, the longest battle of WWI, in which the 17th participated. It also fought at the Battle of Artois in October 1914. Both battles featured on the regiment's flag.CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) From the outset of hostilities, the French began producing newspapers in the trenches. In part they provided an immediate service as a way to disseminate information and a boost to morale, but they were also a reaction to the national press. The 17th were no different in this respect, the first issue of L'echo des Tranchees was printed on 30 November 1914. These publications were not meant for distribution beyond the trenches themselves, they were also produced by front-line soldiers, rather than officers, and so provide a fascinating insight into the morale and mindset of those soldiers at war.CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) This issue was printed before censorship controls were brought into effect. As a result of mutinies in 1917, General Petain ordered a stricter control of content. L'echo des Tranchees ran until at least May 1917. WWI historian Stephane Audoin-Rouzeau estimates that over 400 separate publications were produced by French soldiers in the trenches. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Winston S. Churchill
Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd, 1916. The Story of the Malakand Field Force Winston S. Churchill London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd., 1916 Third edition, in dust jacket Condition: Near Fine Jacket Condition: Very Good plus 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 incidenta … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOYCE, James
JOYCE, James A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. 8vo, blue publisher's cloth with lettering in blind to upper cover and lettering in gilt to spine; pp. [iv], 299, [i]; cloth a little rubbed at edges and corners, and particularly to head and foot of spine; internal front hinge tender; else a very good copy, internally very clean. First edition. Originally appearing serially in twenty-one monthly instalments in the British literary magazine The Egoist, Joyce's semi-autobiographical text was first published in the US, after UK printers refused to accept the liability of printing the text due to reader's critical reactions. The exact number of copies is unknown, but it is estimated that fewer than one thousand were produced. This copy precedes the first English edition by two months. The stream-of-consciousness narrative describes the protagonist Stephen Dedalus' spiritual journey through his Jesuit education to adulthood. Joyce had originally intended the novel to be published under the title Stephen Hero , but abandoned the work in 1907 when it was half finished, to begin a complete revision of the text and its structure. In 1911 Joyce flew into a fit of rage over the continued refusals by publishers to print Dubliners and threw the manuscript of Portrait into the fire. It was saved by a "family fire brigade" including his sister Eileen.In 1917 H. G. Wells wrote that "one believes in Stephen Dedalus as one believes in few characters in fiction." A sound copy of the author's first novel. #2103921

This beautiful and ephemeral publication celebrates the emergency train, a tram with the red cross symbol at the front. The lithograph shows this train approaching military personnel and civilians gathering at the evakuatsionnyi punkt (evacuation point) outside a train station. We were not able to find out what exact event was commemorated with this lavish and beautifully designed ephemeral publication.Provenance Verso neatly inscribed in pencil tarskoe poezd (the Tsar's train).#2097183

The traveller-missionary George Hunter travelled to China in 1889 under the auspices of the China Inland Mission, remaining there (with the exception of one visit to his native Scotland) until his death. During this time he travelled widely throughout China and Central Asia, becoming well-versed in many of the languages of the region. The present work was undertaken in the course of his studies of Turki, and is a translation of a Turki manuscript of the Qissas al-anbiya, which 'contained seventy-one articles dealing with the creation, the lives of the prophets, and ended with an account of the death of Mohammet and incidents regarding his disciples' (M. Cable and F. French George Hunter (London: 1948), p. 58). From this, Hunter 'selected for our translation the New Testament period as we thought this would be the most interesting and useful for our readers' (p. [iii]).
