Condition Report:Pen & Ink Drawing: Pen and ink drawing on paper of an Ogre by Arthur Rackham that was used on page 86 in The Allies Fairy book, first published in 1916. The pen and ink drawing on offer is the actual picture that was then reproduced on page 86. The paper measures approx. 54mm x 68mm, the drawing approx. 37mm x 46mm. Small pencil annotation to lower right (does not affect picture). Photo numbers 1 to 4 show the pen and ink drawing that is for sale.

Rabet, M.
1916-1918. Hardcover. Fabric pastedown on cloth. . Very Good. Oblong, 13.5 by 20 cm. 33 leaves, drawings only on rectos, with two per page on 25 leaves, and eight full page cartoons. Cartoon captions are in French, and the venom is directed at Kaiser Guillaume (Wilhelm II), the Crown Prince, Bethmann-Hollweg, his generals and admirals such as von Tirpitz, von Bissing, von Zeppelin, Turkey and other Central Powers. The caricatures are masterful miniatures. Rabet captures the essence of his target's facial features with a panache of the accomplished caricaturists, and the illustrations truly stand on their own, even without the captioned short dialogues accompanying the drawings. We don't have information about the artist, M. Rabet, but we can comfortably appraise the artwork as professional level. Light wear.

1916. W.B. YEATS Reveries Over Childhood and Youth With the AUTHOR'S SIGNED PRESENTATION at the head of the front fly leaf: 'Aleck Sheppeler [sic] from WBYeats April 19. 1916.'. This is the hardback First Trade Edition published by The Macmillan Company, New York in 1916. (First Trade Edition is used in the traditional manner, so please be assured that this copy is the First Impression). With a colour frontispiece 'Memory Harbour' by Jack B. Yeats and a note on this by the author printed on the facing tissue guard. A further two portrait illustrations of the author's mother and father are also included. A rather nice association copy, presented to his mistress seven days before publication date. Schepeler is primarily remembered as Augustus John's mistress and one of his chief models from 1906 to 1908. His drawings of her are often considered amongst his best work. Born in Russia in 1882, Alexandra 'Alick' [sometimes, as in this case, 'Aleck'] Schepeler was raised in Poland. She later settled in London, where she worked as a secretary at the Illustrated London News for over fifty years, and it was there that she met Augustus John. John mentions his fascination with her in his autobiography, Chiaroscuro (1952): 'I was at this time principally occupied in drawing and painting a subject, Alick Schepeler, to whose strange charm I had bowed. I made many drawings of Miss Schepeler who, of Slavonic origin, illustrated in herself the paradox of Polish pride united to Russian abandon.'. Schepeler was also a lover and friend of Wyndham Lewis and other writers and artists notably W.B. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hi, This lot is an Original 1916 Wisden Paperback with facsimile spine. This is in Very Good condition, the only two things to note is a small rubbing to the front cover on the right and the spine is a slightly different colour to the book. Other than that is is magnificent and a very rare year. The covers are clean, nice and tall. They are nice and bright yellow too. A nice new spine with text has been added , it is neat and tidy but not an exact copy of an original Wisden. Excellent inside with clean pages and tightly bound. Tip top. New spine professionally added which makes the book readable and stops it falling apart. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Fear God and Take Your Own Part is a collection of articles Theodore Roosevelt wrote, largely for Metropolitan Magazine, some six years after he left the presidency. The title is another way of saying that a nation must have the power and will for self-sacrifice as well as the power and will for self-protection. In the book, Roosevelt, who also wrote extensively on the outdoors, vigorously sets forth the "principles of true Americanism" that still reverberate throughout the nation today.

MacLean, Dr. Annie M.
New York; Chicago: Macmillan; McClurg, 1910; 1916. First editions. Both books in original publisher's cloth bindings with titles to spines and front boards. The former in VG+ condition with some sunning to spine and offsetting to rear board. The latter Near Fine, with the slightest bumping to extremities and early ownership inscription to front endpaper "C.W.B.M. [Christian Women's Board of Missions] Millersburg, Ohio Oct. 1918." Internally both copies clean, square, unmarked, and complete, with Wage-Earning Women retaining the two folding charts to the rear. A pair of important and ground-breaking studies on the conditions of working women in the United States and its national and international impacts. Annie M. MacLean was a cutting-edge sociologist whose work focused on the conditions of working women in the United States. Immersive in her work, she was a contributor to Jane Addams' Hull House and the settlement house movement as well as an investigative researcher who took on a variety of jobs to study the treatment and conditions women experienced. In 1907-1908, MacLean supervised a major study on behalf of the YWCA, using a staff of 29 women sociologists surveying a total of 400 companies employing a total of 135,000 women in more than 20 cities (Fish). The result was Wage-Earning Women, a data-driven survey on women's labor and labor conditions the likes of which had never before occurred in the U.S. And it took into account a wide array of situations in which women functioned: industrial work, office labor, seasonal farming. MacLean's work ushered in a new era, wher … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gilbert, Eleanor [Ann Rosenblatt]
New York & London: Funk & Wagnalls, 1916. First edition. Original green publisher's cloth binding with gilt to spine and front board. Just about Fine, with the smallest bumps to lower front corner and extremities of spine. Internally bright and unmarked; complete, including folding chart and rear appendix. The only first edition on the market without damage or ex-library marks; rarely found in this condition. An important book assisting the rising "modern" woman on succeeding in home life and business life to be a well-rounded individual. A compact and effective compendium of practical advice and encouragement for working women. While acknowledging that men continue to maintain power in business, Gilbert aims "to bring intimately to woman's attention the modern methods used by men to achieve great success in business, which she can apply in planning her own future." Women were increasingly recognized as members of the workforce -- studies in the same year through the YWCA had begun providing data, while advertisements and pop culture hailed the advent of the flapper and the 'modern woman' -- and Gilbert encourages their pursuit of financial independence. She also supports the growing notion that a woman needn't choose just one version of life. "I am convinced that you, the typical American business woman can be happy and successful both in business and as a many-sided, interesting woman." Education rates were, after all, rising for girls in America. Women's incomes were growing. And women began marrying later because financial precariousness was a decreasing concern.

Hi, Here we have a rare 1916 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 21st Wisden Hardback and the most expensive of the 20th Century. The rarest or second rarest since 1900. I have been agornising over which of two 1916s to keep as they are both in such amazing condition but to sum up this Wisden is as nice as the one I own in my master set. The lettering is always an issue (if you like shiny gold leaf) 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 , small line mark to the corner at the top of the front board but other than that , nice clean boards. Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy!

FROM THE PREFACE In writing this book I have tried to record those facts which have proven of service to me in the treatment of diabetes. For the benefit of my patients it has seemed well worth while to summarize my work with them during the last eighteen years and I have honestly tried in these pages to let the 400 fatal cases tell their useful lessons to the 600 living. ELLIOTT PROCTER JOSLIN M.D. 1869 - 1962 was the first doctor in the United States to specialize in diabetes and was the founder of todays Joslin Diabetes Center. Dr. Joslin was involved for seven decades in most every aspect of diabetes investigation and treatment save for the fact that he did not discover insulin. Following the Toronto groups blockbuster discovery of insulin in 1921 and the groups disbanding several years later Joslin became effectively the Dean of diabetes mellitus. In the mid 1920s Joslin in his mid 50s took the reins as the world spokesman for the cause of diabetes. He was the first to advocate for teaching patients to care for their own diabetes an approach now commonly referred to as DSME or Diabetes Self-Management Education.

Lieut. C. [Clarence] Lininger
Various location in Mexico, 1916. Envelope or Cover. Very good. Although two previous U.S. experimental airmail flights occurred in 1911, it wasn't until 1916 during the Pancho Villa Punitive Expedition that the first real U. S. airmail service was begun by the Army's 1st Aero Squadron and its eight JN-3 Curtis-Jenny aircraft. The unit, based at San Antonio, Texas, arrived in Columbus on 15 March and deployed to Pershing's base camp at Casas Grande, Mexico on the 19th. High winds, poor maps, lack of repair parts, and severe terrain hampered their deployment, and it took the squadron a full week to re-assemble in Mexico, where it was soon found that the airplanes lacked the power to fly high enough to reconnoiter the mountains where Villa's force was hiding. Further, sand and dryness damaged engines and propellers, and it became apparent that the planes would soon become inoperable. So, the commander, Captain Benjamin D. Foulois, limited their use to transporting communiques and mail until all were no longer flyable. (See Gilnes, "In Pursuit of Pancho Villa" in Air Force Magazine, July 1991 and SWilkins, "Genesis of the Jenny" at HistoryNet.com) As noted in Volume 4 of the American Air Mail Catalog (AMMC 92), "On March 19 the 1st Aero Squadron began flying its eight planes between Columbus and points in Mexico, [transporting] mail and military command dispatches. . .. It is possible . . . to ascertain . . . if a particular letter was flown . . . from the field to Columbus, [it will bear] a Columbus postmark between March 19 and April 20."
