Watanabe Seitei 渡辺省亭
Tôkyô: Okura Shoten, Okura Yasugorô, Taishô 5 [1916]. [BIRD AND FLOWER] Watanabe Seitei 渡辺省亭. SEITEI KACHŌ 省亭花鳥. Tôkyô, Okura Shoten, Okura Yasugorô, Taishô 5 [1916]. Brown cloth clasped portfolio, 28.2 x 38 cm. A complete collection of the 22 color prints, the preface and table of contents page, 24 sheets in all, with a colophon label on the inside of the rear cover. A wonderful production in color woodblock of the work of the important artist Watanabe Seitei (1851-1918). Okura Shoten was also the publisher of Seitei's other two books, the 3 volume SEITEI KACHO GAFU of 1890-1 and the KACHO GAFU of 1903, but this portfolio is by far the rarest of all his works. Prints from the series are seldom seen and much prized, complete sets like this one are vanishingly rare. Overall the condition of the covers is quite good and the prints are well printed. The heavy paper on which the prints are mounted are a bit toned but the prints themselves are quite good and clean, with wonderful colors and impressions. A cornerstone of any Japanese bird and flower collection. Enclosed in a custom clasped cloth box.

Silk-lined endpapers. A couple of small scrapes on the boards, modest dampstain in margins of the first several leaves, the white boards predictably a bit soiled, a very good copy of an elaborately prepared woman's school yearbook, with a separate portrait of each student tipped-in with their signatures in facsimile, as well as other images of faculty, the campus, group shots, and activities. Otherwise blank pages in the rear are provided for engagements, marriages, births, and deaths! The Ogontz School was an exclusive girl's college which used the estate of Jay Cooke as its campus. In the following year, 1917, the formidable headmistress Abby A. 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). As deluxe a yearbook for a woman's college as we've seen.

John Wisden
Hi, This lot is an Original 1916 Hardback Wisden . Scarce. It is in Excellent condition. In fact it is as good as my own. I am quite lucky at the moment to own such beautiful WW1 Wisdens. This book has wonderful front gilt, the spine gilt would normally be described as faded but it was never on the book in the first place so it has nice gilt but without the gold leaf on top (as per normal). Barely a mark to the boards which are tall and clean. The pages inside are amazing, so very white without a spot, the yellow paste downs are excellent , a tinge of darkness to the top of the right hand page with an ink name tidily written and birth and death above Trumper obit title. I had to compare it against my own and it was a tie. A treat. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

JOYCE, James.
New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. First edition, finely bound Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, burgundy endpapers, gilt edges. Couple of spots to prelims, an excellent copy in a fine binding. First edition, first printing. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialisation of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. So it was Huebsch that undertook the true first publication. He would send from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK in February 1917. Whilst the number of copies issued in America is undetermined the number could not have been large since he had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April.[Attributes: First Edition]

Christopher Mathewson (August 12, 1880 - October 7, 1925), nicknamed Big Six , The Christian Gentleman , Matty , and The Gentleman's Hurler , was a Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher, who played 17 seasons with the New York Giants. He stood 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) tall and weighed 195 pounds (88 kg). He was among the most dominant pitchers in baseball history, and ranks in the all-time top 10 in several key pitching categories, including wins, shutouts, and ERA.[1] In fact, he is the only professional pitcher in history to rank in the top 10 both in career wins and career ERA, if taking 19th-century pitchers' statistics into account.[2] Otherwise, both Mathewson and Walter Johnson would hold that distinction.[3] In 1936, Mathewson was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its first five members.

Grant, Madison
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1916. First edition of The Passing Of The Great Race by Madison Grant. Octavo, xxi, 245pp. Blue gray covers, title in gilt on spine, title with gilt emblem on front cover. First edition with Scribner's Device on copyright page. Top edge gilt. Bumped lower for edge, residual mark on back panel. Complete with two foldout tables, a chronological table and four foldout color maps of Europe. An excellent copy of this influential work on eugenics. First published in 1916 by American eugenicist Madison Grant, this work expounds the theory of Nordic superiority and argues for aggressive eugenic programs. This book was translated into German in the early 1920s and published by J.F. Lehmann Verlag. It was part of a collection of 50 odd books that were produced by Lehmann and offer the "building blocks" for what history would come to know as the Nazi party. Lehmann was an early supporter of Adolf Hitler, with gift inscriptions in other books from Lehmann to Hitler noting the important "building blocks" that these publications represent. (Ryback, 110) In a note from Hitler to the author in 1929, Hitler thanked Grant for writing the book, calling it "his bible." (Black, 2003, 259pp). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

JOYCE, James.
London: The Egoist Ltd., London, 1916. 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.

(p.3). A rare manual, printed for the use of officers serving in the Mesopotamian Campaign of the First World War. It largely concerns lower Mesopotamia, but also contains valuable information on Eastern Arabia and the Persian Gulf. The first chapter is a history of the region, from the British expedition to Mohammerah in March 1857 to the start of WWI. After outlining how Britain won a monopoly over trade in the Gulf in the 19th century, it stresses the challenge posed to her superiority by Turkish and German advances. It then details the political relations between the Ottoman Empire and Mesopotamia, Kuwait, Al Hasa, and Najd. The following seven chapters ? geography, population, resources, military, maritime, administration and communications ? primarily focus on Mesopotamia, giving a highly detailed account of a landmass covering much of present-day Southern Iraq and part of the Khuzestan Province of Iran. There are also important sections on the strength of the Turkish army and navy. Four appendices follow the main text. Appendix A ?Note on t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Muir, John
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1916. First edition of this work by Muir. Octavo, original green cloth, color pictorial cover label, lettered in white, top edge gilt. Edited with an introduction by William Frederic Bade. Illustrated with several plates from photographs, including a frontispiece portrait with tissue guard; map. Fine in the rare original dust jacket, which is in near fine condition. Uncommon in this condition. In 1867, John Muir, age twenty-eight, was blinded in an industrial accident. He lay in bed for two weeks wondering if he would ever see again. When his sight miraculously returned, Muir resolved to devote all his time to the great passion of his life -- studying plants. He quit his job in an Indiana manufacturing plant, said good-bye to his family, and set out alone to walk to the Gulf of Mexico, sketching tropical plants along the way. He kept a journal of this thousand-mile walk and near the end of his life, now famous as a conservation warrior and literary celebrity, sent a typescript of it to his publisher. The result is a wonderful portrait of a young man in search of himself and a particularly vivid portrait of the post-war American South. Here is the young Muir talking with freed slaves and former Confederate soldiers, pondering the uses of electricity, exploring Mammoth Cave, sleeping in a Savannah cemetery, delirious with malarial fever in the home of strangers at Cedar Key, traveling to Havana, Cuba, and sailing to San Francisco Bay. Once in California, Muir promptly set out for Yosemite Valley -- 200 miles away. There Muir found his destin … [Click Below for Full Description]
