Nijinsky, Waslaw [Vaslav]. (1889-1950) [Nijinsky, NEE de Pulszky, Romola. (1891 - 1978)
1916. Autograph letter composed in the hand of Romola Nijinsky on behalf of Waslaw Nijinsky and signed by Waslaw Nijinsky. 2 pp (recto/verso), dated 30 September, 1916 and addressed to Frederick Herman Martens (1874-1932). On stationary for The Biltmore in New York, translated from the French, in full: "Dear sir, I just now received your letter from the 23rd, and I appreciate your lovely offer to dedicate your book to me. I accept with pleasure, and I hope that in attending the rehearsals of my new works, you will have the occasion to discover new perspectives on modern ballet./ With best remembrances,/ W. Nijinsky".  Signed letters from Nijinsky, are of the utmost rarity. Signed by Waslaw Nijinsky himself, the present letter is in the hand of Romola de Pulszky, the Hungarian heiress and dancer in Diaghilev's corps de ballet, who won the affections of Waslaw Nijinsky on the company's 1913 sea voyage to South America, and by the time they landed in Buenos Aires, had convinced him to marry her. Upon receiving the news of the marriage, Diaghilev cabled Nijinsky to inform him that he was dismissed from the company. Severed from his personal and professional ties with the ballet, Nijinsky began his famous struggle with mental illness. Though he rejoined Diaghilev for the world tour from which the present letter was penned, he retired in 1917 when he was diagnosed a paranoid schizophrenic."For the first US tour, earlier in 1916, Diaghilev had succeeded in having Nijinsky released from his internment for mental health problems, and though he arrived on that tour later than the res … [Click Below for Full Description]

1916. Octavo. Measuring 9" x 6". String-tied paper album. Contains 17 sepia toned or black and white albumen photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" and 3.5" x 4.5", with captions in Czech. Very good album with detached pages, lacking the front and rear wrappers with near fine photographs. A modest but interesting photo album kept by a Czech soldier on the Russian Front during the First World War. The photos show soldiers posed in uniform, ruins of cities, and civilian refugees fleeing their war-torn towns. One of the photos is captioned, "funeral on the Russian Front," and shows a crowd gathered around a grave site while the coffin is being lowered. Another image of an abandoned trench reads, "here we gave up." Crowds of refugees are seen in two photos with the caption, "evacuation." Crumbling bridges and other structures are photographed in some of the later pictures as well as men on horseback and an official speaking to a line of uniformed men. The Czech soldiers formed their legions voluntarily during the war in hopes that helping the Allies would ensure independence for Bohemia, Moravia, and Hungary. A nice collection of WWI photography depicting the Russian Front from the Czech perspective. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

GOBLE, Leroy T., and Gilbert B. Seehausen
[Chicago, 1916. A collection of 60 large gelatin silver photographs by Chicago ad-man Leroy Truman Goble. The collection features outstanding images of nude women both in the studio and outdoors, along with several other portraits of women, and of actors dating from the early days of Chicago's Sawyer Goodman Theater. A prominent figure among Chicago's literary and theatrical circles, Goble had developed close friendships with almost everyone involved in the Chicago literary renaissance, including Carl Sandburg, Sherwood Anderson, Floyd Dell, Vachel Lindsay, Ben Hecht, and John Gunther. *Chicago Tribune* journalist and author Harry Hansen wrote a special memorial tribute to Goble in 1946. As noted by Hansen and others, Goble also was an important collector and an accomplished amateur painter and photographer. An active member of the Caxton club and Chicago Camera Club, in 1922 Goble served as president of the Chicago Camera Club alongside of Gilbert B. Seehausen (then Treasurer), a fellow photographer in the advertising business who later won acclaim for his use of modernist and avant-garde elements in portraits for *Esquire* and other magazines. Included in the collection are eight portraits of Goble, four of which were taken by Seehausen (including one signed by Seehausen in ink). The collection consists of 50 photographs neatly mounted on thick paper portfolio sheets, and 10 loose photographs all of a nude female model. Modest silvering to a few prints at the edges, overall near fine. The prints range in size from about 7" x 9" to 10" x 13". Most are black and white, incl … [Click Below for Full Description]

The photo album features a full family of grandparents, parents, and children living together. A large amount of the photographs are artistically cut into shapes such as circles, diamonds, and rectangles with rounded corners. There are several pictures of the small town they lived in with dirt streets and open fields. Most of the photos feature the family standing together smiling in front of their home or visiting different locations like the beach and the city. Some of the locations include Cherry Beach and Walpole Island in Canada, Algonac Michigan; and Chicago. Several pictures are of the woman making silly faces and running around the woods. Some pictures are of the women playing baseball with makeshift bases and outfits. There are also pictures of a woman with her hair down and out of a bun, dancing around in a small park.

Likely St. Petersburg, 1916. Black-and-white albumen photo print (vintage), measuring ca. 148 x 157, mounted on a piece of backing paper, matted, glazed and framed (448 x 405 mm). A formal portrait photograph of the four Grand Duchesses of Russia, taken in 1913 for the Romanov Tercentenary and signed by all four and dated "1916" at the bottom. The sisters were very close and frequently signed letters to family relations as "OTMA", rather than use their individual names. - Olga (born 15 November 1895), Tatiana (10 June 1897), Maria (26 June 1899) and Anastasia (18 June 1901), the daughters of Emperor Nicholas II of Russia and his consort, Alexandra Feodorovna, were the most famous princesses of their day. Signed photographs are extremely rare, as they were all executed by Bolshevik revolutionaries at Yekaterinburg on 17 July 1918, aged 22, 21, 19, and 17, respectively. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1916. 'JS' Bound by 'AS' [BINDING]. STEPHENS, James. Green Branches. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1916.First American Edition. Limited to 500 copies.Octavo (8 3/16 x 5 11/16 inches; 208 x 145 mm.). 32 unnumbered leaves printed on one side only. Bound in 1922, stamp-signed "A - S 1922" in gilt on rear turn-in. Full dark green levant morocco, covers decoratively tooled in gilt with a framework of flowers and stems surrounding a gilt ruled border which in turn surrounds another gilt border with similar floral tools in the corners and top and lower edges. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled with the same floral design in compartments. Gilt ruled board edges, and wide turn-ins with triple gilt rules and the same gilt flower ornaments in the corners, all edges gilt. Minimal darkening to spine. A very fine example. Although we have been unable to ascertain the identity of "A - S" this binding is most likely by a student of one of the great binders of the early twentieth century. It is unusual inasmuch as all of the six spine panels have been decoratively tooled in gilt - but with no lettering. James Stephens (1880-1950) was an Irish novelist and poet. By the early 1900s James was increasingly inclined to socialism and the Irish language and by 1912 was a dedicated Irish Republican. He was a close friend of the 1916 leader Thomas MacDonagh, who was then editor of "The Irish Review" and deputy headmaster in St Enda's, the radical bilingual school run by P.H. Pearse and would be manager of the Irish Theatre, and spent much tim … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOYCE, James.
London: The Egoist Ltd., London,, 1916. Inscribed to his fellow author Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine in gilt and in blind to front cover. Custom brown morocco-backed slipcase, black morocco labels; with chemises for book and accompanying material (see below). Small area of surface rubbing at centre of front cover, gilt lettering a little faded as often, front inner hinge with superficial crack discreetly refurbished but holding firm. An excellent copy, unusually fresh for an inscribed Joyce. First edition, UK issue. Inscribed on the front free endpaper to the author Frederick Britten Austin, with Austin's note "signed for me F. Britten Austin" followed, in Joyce's hand, "by James Joyce Paris 1.1.39". The English writer Austin (1885-1941) published various short story collections, chiefly on military, maritime, and supernatural themes. Austin was a friend of Stuart Gilbert (1883-1969), who had befriended Joyce when offering his help with the French rendering of Ulysses, and who subsequently published a study of Ulysses in 1930 and a collection of Joyce's letters in 1957. It was probably through Gilbert that Austin solicited Joyce to inscribe the book for him. Joyce inscribed the book in unhappy circumstances, exhausted by illness, and drained by the task of making the final corrections to Finnegans Wake. The same day he inscribed the book, New Year's Day 1939, he wrote to Livia Svevo: "Finalmente ho finite di finire il mio libro. Sono già tre lustre che pettino e ripettinto la chioma di Anna Livia" ("I have at last finished finishing my book. For three lust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lovis Corinth wird am 21.7.1858 in der Stadt Tapiau in Ostpreußen (heute Gwardejsk, Russland) geboren. Bereits auf dem Gymnasium in Königsberg wird sein Interesse an der griechischen und römischen Mythologie sowie an den christlichen Geschichten der Bibel geweckt. Ab 1876 besucht Lovis Corinth die Kunstakademie in Königsberg, er studiert bei Otto Günther, der ihn mit der Weimarer Freilichtmalerei bekannt macht. 1880 wechselt er auf die Münchner Akademie. Arbeiten der Münchner Zeit belegen seine Orientierung an der naturalistischen Malweise des Kreises um Wilhelm Leibl. 1883 reist Lovis Corinth mit seinem Vater nach Italien, 1884 ist er für drei Monate in Antwerpen, wo er Malunterricht bei Paul Eugène Gorge nimmt. 1884-1887 studiert Corinth in Paris an der Académie Julian. Anschließend reist der Künstler nach Berlin, wo wohl 1887/88 das erste Selbstporträt entsteht, dem im Laufe der Jahre zahlreiche weitere folgen werden. 1891-1899 lebt Corinth als freier Maler in München, er gehört dort der Sezession an.

B. Schott's Söhne, Mainz and Leipzig, 1916. First edition. Quarto. Rebound in black cloth, with front wrap mounted on front board. Small book label of collector Herbert Boyce Satcher on the front board, else near fine. Tipped to the page facing the first page of music is an Autograph Musical Quotation (approximately 6" x 10") Inscribed and Signed by Korngold in 1936. Korngold's second opera, written when the Austrian musical prodigy and composer was 19 years old (as a child he had been praised by Gustav Mahler, Artur Schnabel, and Richard Strauss). Korngold went to Hollywood in 1934 to adapt Mendelssohn's music for *A Midsummer Night's Dream*, and returned to score Michael Curtiz's *The Adventures of Robin Hood* (1938). Fortuitously, he arrived back in Hollywood just before the Nazis annexed Austria, and, being Jewish, decided to stay in America, where he spent the rest of his life. Korngold won an Academy Award for *Robin Hood* and it was the first of several films scored by him, directed by Curtiz, and starring Errol Flynn, including *The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex* (1939) and *The Sea Hawk* (1940). After WWII he returned to classical composition, though today he is generally considered, along with Max Steiner, the father of film music. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

1916. This set is still bound in the original leather bindings from the Victorian Era (late 1800's). The leather bindings have generalized wear and cracking. The internal hinges are all strong, in that the leather is not structural to the binding strength, but there is external cracking and splitting, especially along the hinge area of the bindings, with some spine lift along the hinge areas, some of which can not be seen in the pictures, and along the spine extremities. The hinges are all strongly attached. This set has a lot of generalized wear and cracking but is still a nice antiquarian library set bound in leather. These are the original bindings.

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).

Original terracotta cloth, titles in brown to spine and front board. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Jacket sunned at spine and flap folds, some nicks, chips and tears, spine of binding a little cocked and just lightly rumpled, top edge dusty, touch of foxing to endpapers. A very good copy, tight and sharp-cornered. First edition, first impression, presentation copy from the author to the publisher, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Grant Richards, novelist and patron of letters. Thomas Burke". Examples in the jacket are rare and we have not been able to trace another inscribed copy. Grant Richards's first novel, Caviare, was published in 1912, followed by seven other novels between 1913 and 1935. Queen's Quorum describes Limehouse Nights, a collection of fourteen short stories, as "a work of high literary art [that] became a classic overnight"; for Grant Richards it was "a critical and financial success despite... risqué allusions" (ODNB). These "risqué allusions" are remarked on by Paul Newland in his study The Cultural Construction of London's East End: "Burke's Limehouse tales also echo the 'Yellow Peril' discourse of the fin de siecle. They re-engage with anxieties concerning urban degeneration, immorality, imperial decline, miscegenation and the increased political and sexual freedom of women.

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.

Russolo, Luigi
Edizioni Futuriste di Poesia, 1916. First Italian Edition, preceding all others. A book length expansion of the musical theories first put forth by Russolo in a 1913 manifesto to fellow Futurist composer Francesco Balilla Pratella. Text in Italian. Perhaps the earliest treatise on the use of noise as an element in modern music, and one that would come to influence countless musicians and movements, including John Cage and Pierre Schaeffer. Very Good in wrappers. Light foxing and toning to the wrappers and endpapers, with faint tidemarks to the some pages.

Romanova, Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, Grand Duchesses of Russia].
Likely St. Petersburg, 1916. Black-and-white albumen photo print (vintage), measuring ca. 148 x 157, mounted on a piece of backing paper, matted, glazed and framed (448 x 405 mm). A formal portrait photograph of the four Grand Duchesses of Russia, taken in 1913 for the Romanov Tercentenary and signed by all four and dated "1916" at the bottom. The sisters were very close and frequently signed letters to family relations as "OTMA", rather than use their individual names. - Olga (born 15 November 1895), Tatiana (10 June 1897), Maria (26 June 1899) and Anastasia (18 June 1901), the daughters of Emperor Nicholas II of Russia and his consort, Alexandra Feodorovna, were the most famous princesses of their day. Signed photographs are extremely rare, as they were all executed by Bolshevik revolutionaries at Yekaterinburg on 17 July 1918, aged 22, 21, 19, and 17, respectively. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Edwards, J Gordon (director); William Shakespeare (play); Adrian Johnson (screenwriter); Theda Bara, Harry Hilliard, Glen White (starring)
Fort Lee, NJ: Fox Film, 1916. Vintage bifold program for Los Angeles' Clune's Theatres' two day 1916 engagement of the 1916 silent film starring Theda Bara, now lost, with a striking four color exterior and interior composite of five black and white studio still images. Clune's Theatre opened in 1909 and was located in Los Angeles at 107 W. 5th and 453 S. Main streets, seating 1000. The date of the theatre's demolition (to make way for the Rosslyn Hotel) is unclear, with some sources saying as early as 1915, others 1917. As this program features a 1916 film, the latter is apparently correct, making "Romeo and Juliet" one of its' last features. In 1916 film studios were celebrating the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and both Fox Film and Metro Pictures had each been vying to release their version of "Romeo and Juliet." Metro Picture's version, directed by John W. Noble and Francis X. Bushman, and starring Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Baye, was released just three days prior to the Fox Film version. Bushman would later claim when he saw Fox's version he was startled to see intertitles from his version used in the Fox version and that William Fox had spies working at Metro steal them. Theda Bara, who played Juliet, was a popular silent film star whose femme fatale roles earned her the nickname "The Vamp" and made more than 40 films between 1914 and 1926, most of which were lost in the 1937 Fox vault fire. Director James Gordon Edwards was Fox Film's premiere director and would direct all of Fox Film's big budget spectacles, including all of Theda Bara's films … [Click Below for Full Description]
