FRANCISCO DE GOYA Y LUCIENTES
Calcografía Nacional, Madrid, 1916. Materia: Colección de Aguafuertes. Goya. Los Proverbios. Arte. Publicación: Madrid, Real Academis de San Fernando, 1916. 6ª edición. Descripción: La estampa Disparate de carnaval, de la que no se conserva dibujo preparatorio, pone de manifiesto la vinculación de la serie con los carnavales. La escena acaece a ras de suelo y presenta el enfrentamiento jocoso entre dos personajes disfrazados ante una multitud de variopintas figuras. El hecho de que a la izquierda un religioso sea objeto de chanzas y un militar ?identificado por su colback- aparezca tumbado, quien sabe si dormido o borracho, en el centro del grupo, revela el carácter subversivo del carnaval. Técnica: Grabado al aguafuerte. Medidas del papel 31 x 45 cm. Tinta sepia y negra. Tirada limitada a 50 ejemplares. Esta edición esta muy bien impresa, papel fuerte, limpio y de gran calidad. Conservación: Ejemplar muy limpio y bien conservado. PBS1

FRANCISCO DE GOYA Y LUCIENTES
Calcografía Nacional, Madrid, 1916. Materia: Colección de Aguafuertes. Goya. Los Proverbios. Arte. Publicación: Madrid, Real Academis de San Fernando, 1916. 6ª edición. Descripción: La estampa Disparates, 16, Las exhortaciones, pertenece a una serie que Goya comenzó en 1815, siendo fiel reflejo del contexto histórico y personal del artista que, finalizada la Guerra de la Independencia, vio derrumbarse parte del mundo progresista con el que de algún modo se había identificado. Es previsible que trabajase en ella hasta 1819, momento en el que el cambio de signo político, el triunfo del general Rafael Riego, trajo consigo la proclamación de la Constitución de 1812 y un ambiente de esperanza donde la atmósfera opresiva de los Disparates estuviera fuera de lugar. Inacabados e incompresibles, rompieron con la por entonces versión oficial y propagandística que el resto de los grabadores mostraban en sus estampas, tiempos de adulación personal a Fernando VII. Técnica: Grabado al aguafuerte. Medidas del papel 31 x 45 cm. Tinta sepia y negra. Tirada limitada a 50 ejemplares. Con marca de agua: José Guarro Catalunya. Esta edición esta muy bien impresa, papel fuerte, limpio y de gran calidad. Conservación: Ejemplar muy limpio y bien conservado. PBS1

FRANCISCO DE GOYA Y LUCIENTES
Calcografía Nacional, Madrid, 1916. Materia: Colección de Aguafuertes. Goya. Los Proverbios. Arte. Publicación: Madrid, Real Academis de San Fernando, 1916. 6ª edición. Descripción: El título que tanto Beruete como Camón Aznar dieron a la estampa, Disparate matrimonial, puede que se ciña mejor a la escena ya que siempre ha sido vista como símbolo de la indisolubilidad del matrimonio. La prueba de estado antes de la aguatinta y punta seca, conservada en la Fundación Lázaro Galdiano (Madrid), permite observar la crudeza de los rostros de las personas que rodean a este ser doble y comprobar el parecido que tiene con las Pinturas Negras (Bozal, 2002), así como su conexión con el mundo del carnaval como una figura con dos caretas (Glendinning, 1998). La composición de la estampa se relaciona vagamente con el motivo del dibujo preparatorio Disparate desordenado, pero no es posible establecer un vínculo definitivo entre ambas imágenes. De ser así, la única figura que Goya ha mantenido es un gigante señalando a la multitud. Técnica: Grabado al aguafuerte. Medidas del papel 31 x 45 cm. Tinta sepia y negra. Tirada limitada a 50 ejemplares. Esta edición esta muy bien impresa, papel fuerte, limpio y de gran calidad. Conservación: Ejemplar muy limpio y bien conservado. PBS1

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 and not some nth impression/reprint). 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 ot … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cangiullo, Francesco
Edizioni futuriste di Poesia (Tipografia A. Longobardo & C.), 1916. Rarissima edizione originale. Ottimo esemplare, freschissimo e integro alla copertina (minime fioriture all'interno). Non comune così. Libro d'artista capolavoro assoluto del paroliberismo figurativo. L'autore, geniale napoletano arrivato al futurismo dalla gavetta nella canzone ilare campana, con questo libro arriva ad esiti figurativo-concettuali di chiara portata dadaista -- indipendentemente da quanto andavano elaborando i veri e propri dadaisti in Francia e in Svizzera, proprio in questi anni.

[Women in Medicine] Newsome, Edith
London: The Scientific Press, 1916. First edition. Very Good +. Scarce first edition of a Red Cross manual designed both for emergency workers and women in the home. Original publisher's cloth binding titled in red on spine and front board. Boards a bit rubbed and soiled, corners bumped. Faint offsetting to the endpapers. Inscribed by Edith Newsome on the front pastedown: "With the Author's Compliments, Edith Newsome." Another hand has added beneath it in pencil, "16. 10. 23," suggesting that this was presented in the year of publication. A scarce book institutionally and in trade, OCLC reports only 11 copies in libraries, this being the only one currently on the market. Edith Newsome's first major work on nursing, produced after she realized that her Red Cross lecture series could not provide complete enough information to train "those who have so nobly responded to the 'call of duty'; to do all that is in their power to tend and succour the brave men of our nation by proving themselves valuable and intelligent helpers." Indeed, Newsome's work was released two years into World War I -- the first modern war, which brought with it a horrifying number of previously unknown injuries and ailments. In addition to professional nurses, women enrolled to assist as Volunteer Aid Detachments (VADs) because there simply were not enough women with medical educations to serve the nation's need. The present work is a stirring acknowledgement of this. Comprehensive in training VADs and new nurses in field operations, it also contains information for women in the home, who confronte … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRANCISCO DE GOYA Y LUCIENTES
Calcografía Nacional, Madrid, 1916. Materia: Colección de Aguafuertes. Goya. Los Proverbios. Arte. Publicación: Madrid, Real Academis de San Fernando, 1916. 6ª edición. Descripción: La obra muestra una multitud desordenada en la que destacan las figuras disfrazadas de gato de quienes podrían ser dos personajes vestidos de religiosos en un bautismo felino. Al fondo, una figura deforme, que recuerda a Napoleón, se aproxima al grupo; y en la parte superior, una mujer y un niño parecen iniciar un vuelo diabólico. En esta imagen, donde rige la confusión, el único personaje que parece guardar silencio es el anciano que se encuentra sentado leyendo, cuya cabeza destaca en el conjunto por su luminosidad. Una vez más nos encontramos ante una escena carnavalesca en la que los hombres disfrazados se burlan de las jerarquías. Técnica: Grabado al aguafuerte. Medidas del papel 31 x 45 cm. Tinta sepia y negra. Tirada limitada a 50 ejemplares. Con marca de agua: José Guarro Catalunya. Esta edición esta muy bien impresa, papel fuerte, limpio y de gran calidad.

Franchi, Raffaello
Ferrante Gonnelli Editore, 1916. Edizione originale. CON DEDICA Fioriture alla copertina, interno fresco e pulito; nel complesso un ottimo esemplare pregiato da importante invio autografo dell'autore al pittore Bacci: «A Baccio M. Bacci | Raffaello Franchi» Rarissima opera prima. Franchi fu uno dei protagonisti della scena culturale italiana del primo Novecento: fiorentino, sbocciò nel capoluogo toscano appena in seguito a «Lacerba» (sulla «Forca», per la precisione), divenendo rapidamente motore di alcune tra le più innovative esperienze editoriali, dall'«Italia futurista» a «Solaria» passando per «La Raccolta», «L'Enciclopedia» e «Il Baretti». Fu apprezzato scrittore e critico d'arte. -- «La produzione lirica del Franchi, che appartiene tutta alla sua giovinezza, è caratterizzata da poemetti in prosa e da frammenti, intesi, questi ultimi, nel genuino senso della parola e non secondo quel gusto dell'epoca che aveva elevato il frammento lirico a genere letterario. L'influenza dell'opera di Dino Campana appare a quest'altezza quanto mai significativa, e lo stesso Franchi ebbe a dichiarare: "I Canti di Campana stanno agglutinando e fortificando la nostra atmosfera"» (DBI) Cammarota.

Das Urteil sei "zwar klein, aber es ist auch mehr Gedicht als Erzählung, es braucht freien Raum um sich und es ist auch nicht unwert ihn zu bekommen", es könne sich nur auswirken mit "ganz freien Raum um sich" (zitiert nach Dietz). - Unbeschnitten. - Titel und Brosch. gering lichtrandig, sonst guterhaltenes Exemplar.Dietz 31. - Hemmerle S. 20. - Raabe 146, 4. - Göbel 253.

Campana, Dino
1916. Componimento poetico autografo firmato. Due brevissimi strappi alla piegatura, uniforme brunitura, ma ottime condizioni di conservazione. Sulla base delle informazioni che si ricavano dal carteggio di Campana, la prima testimonianza, seppur parziale, della poesia «Domodossola 1915» è contenuta in una cartolina postale autografa inviata da Campana a Emilio Cecchi l'8 aprile 1916, da Lastra a Signa: il poeta risponde a Cecchi, che gli chiedeva alcuni suoi componimenti, trascrivendo alcuni versi del testo, e specificando: «così comincia una poesia nazionale che continua in un rude canto popolare [...] Nessuna di queste cose è ancora completa» (Lettere di un povero diavolo, p. 151). Nello stesso mese di aprile, Campana scrive anche a Mario Novaro, sempre da Lastra, inviandogli una versione integrale di «Domodossola» e sollecitandone la pubblicazione: «Stampi subito, se può, se no potrebbe anche apparire in qualche fesso giornale (numero unico?) avendola scoperta un mio vecchio amico d'Università a Bologna» (ivi p. 153). Il vecchio amico a cui fa riferimento Campana è Federico Ravagli, responsabile dei giornali goliardici bolognesi «Il Papiro» e «Il Cannone», a cui il poeta aveva fatto avere la poesia. La velata minaccia sortì il suo effetto: nel maggio 1916, sul numero XXII,53 de «La Riviera ligure» (pp. 529-s), Novaro pubblicò infatti il componimento con l'intestazione «A M. N. | Domodossola 1915». -- Risale a questi anni, stando al racconto dettagliato offerto da Gabriel Cacho Millet, il nostro testimone manoscritto. È importante rimarcarlo, dal momento che, dopo la pub … [Click Below for Full Description]

[California]. [Railroads]
[Chicago, 1916. Very good.. [12]pp. Original pictorial self-wrappers, stapled. Small contemporary publisher's notice affixed to front wrap. Light wear and dust soiling. Rare promotional for the Salt Lake Route by rail to Los Angeles, and for the attractions of the city itself, published circa 1916. The text touts the population and commercial growth of Los Angeles from the turn of the 20th century, its many attractions, and year-round seasonability. The last leaf provides a summary of ways to arrive on the West Coast via the Salt Lake Route through Las Vegas from Chicago, Minneapolis, and Denver, and prints a full-page map of the route and intermediate stops across Utah, Southern Nevada, and Southern California. The Salt Lake Route was operated by the Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, whose line between the two cities was completed in 1905 under the ownership and direction of Montana mining baron William A. Clark, and as a result it was also known informally as the "Clark Road." With many photographic reproductions of Los Angeles and its attractions just after World War I, including many of the grand Southern California resorts of the day. Not in OCLC.

La belle amitié de Segalen et Farrère "Mon Colonel.Vous êtes certainement informé du point exact où en est la question qui nous tient si fort à coeur ; je me permets cependant de vous la réexporter telle qu'elle nous apparait d'ici, à Charles et moi. La marine, malgré des conclusions médicales positives, refuse (et m'en avise par voie officieuse, mais sûre) toute réintégration ; et suggère qu'une demande venue de la Guerre, lui fournisse l'occasion d'une mutation qui est d'ailleurs très désirée par notre ami. Une telle démarche pouvant seule mettra fin à une situation d'attente et d'observation durant laquelle la volonté de tenir ses promesses et d'être désigné pour le feu n'a subi en Charles aucun démenti, - je viens vous demander, comme témoin de l'état réalisé par lui, s'il convient : -d'attendre indéfiniment une solution [...]. -si ces démarches ont été faites, si la Guerre, pressentie par l'un de ses amis doit le réclamer à la Marine (et dans ce cas si une lettre officielle et Charles demandant de passer au plus tôt avec son grade, à la Guerre ne serait pas opportune & aurait quelque chance de recevoir une réponse [)]. Charles a accueilli le refus de réintégration, - malgré la peine profonde qu'il en a pu sentir - avec une maîtrise parfaite [...]".Avant de risquer une nouvelle demande, Segalen et Bargone souhaiteraient avoir les conseils du général Jouinot-Gambetta.

ELGAR, Edward 1857-1934
1 page. Quarto. Dated February 2, 1916. On stationery with "Severn House, 42, Netherhall Gardens, Hampstead, N.W." printed at upper right and "Telegrams: - Siromoris, London. Telephone: - 4771.P.O.Hampstead." at upper left corner. A short and direct statement, all the more interesting as Elgar never completed an opera: "I have no plans regarding opera & have no intention of writing one at present." Quite browned; slightly worn; creased at folds and slightly overall; central fold splitting at left margin. Best-known today for his Enigma Variations, Elgar's "abundant invention, largeness of vision, and strength and singularity of musical character place him high among European Romantic artists and at the peak of British music of his time. He drew inspiration from the culture and landscape of his own country, resourcefulness from the study of his continental colleagues; and contributed to all the major forms except opera, creating a significant body of symphonic literature, the finest oratorio by an Englishman, and in his popular music a style of direct national appeal." Diana McVeagh in Grove Music Online. Elgar began to sketch an opera called The Spanish Lady in 1932 but died before it could be completed.

MILHAUD, Darius 1892-1974
1916. 1 page. Folio (ca. 279 x 215 mm.). N.d. In English. Milhaud very enthusiastically thanks Livingston for his "kind collaboration," and will send a 2-piano version of some of his Songs as soon as it is photocopied. He includes greetings for Livingston's wife, Virginia Morley, for whom his Song arrangements are presumably also intended. He will come in December, and hopes to see Livingston often. "10000000 thanks. You acted very wonderfully and I jumped on my desk and made a 2 pianos version of three numbers of my Songs which I intended to do for months... I think you will like those little pieces. The Russian-River-Pianist asked me only the rights of the 1st performance and no exclusivity. You will be able to play 'his' piece after January if you wish... I am too glad to send you new old pieces because you [and Virginia] are both artists that I love and admire..." Slightly worn; minor edge tears; creased at folds and corners; tape repairs to central fold of blank verso with minor remnants of former mount to upper margin. "A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, [Milhaud's] music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. "Gearhart (1916-1996) is probably best known for his hit arrangement of the classic 'Dry Bones' and his 'Session Series' of skills-building books. Gearhart attended the Curtis Institute of Music.

Bynner, Witter & Arthur Davison Ficke]
Mitchell Kennerley, New York, 1916. First edition. 66 pp. 12mo. INSCRIBED. Inscribed on ffep by Bynner as Emanuel Morgan, to his Santa Fe friend, Mirandi Masocco: "Reflecting the year of her birth, Hal fondly presents Mirandi to that old fake, Emanuel Morgan." (Hal was Bynner's nickname.) A fine copy of this volume of verse which represents one of the more well-known literary hoaxes from the beginning of the twentieth century. Having published three books of verse to some success, Witter Bynner (who had helped to publish Pound's first book of poems) "contrived a literary hoax to spoof such poetic trends as Imagism and Vorticism. Together with his friend Arthur Davison Ficke, Bynner fabricated the 'Spectric' school of poetry. Adopting the pseudonyms Emanuel Morgan and Anne Knish, Bynner and Ficke published parodic poems that some took quite seriously, although others recognized the burlesque inent behind such lines as 'Then you came--like a scream/Of beeves.' Formally, Bynner's Spectra poems resemble his prior work, but they distingish themselves in their tone and range of subjects." (Encyclopedia of American Poetry). The volume generated a good deal of praise in the literary world until the hoax was revealed two years later while Bynner was delivering a lecture and was asked point blank whether or not he was Morgan and Ficke was Knish, which he confirmed. See Smith, William Jay. The Spectra Hoax (Middletown, CT, 1961) Decorated boards. Small pale stain to spine, otherwise fine, in slipcase. With a photo laid in of Bynner, A.D.
