Women in Medicine] Newsome, Edith
The Scientific Press, London, 1916. 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 confronted infection, illness, or injury and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rosenthal, Elias; Theodore Dreiser
New York. In 1916, Theodore Dreiser's autobiographical novel "Genius", which among other topics, examined traditional and modern views of sexual morality, was deemed blasphemous and obscene by the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, and banned. This pamphlet, written by Elias Rosenthal, defends Dreiser's banned work with specific reference to the overreactions of vice societies to the work: "This brings me down to the action of the locally organized vice society in Cincinnati, which discovered in Theodore Dreiser's "The Genius" seventy five passages which it considered "lewd",and seventeen "profane", all of which when examined proved to be nothing more than accurate comments on passing phases of life. . what is needed is some strong bug powder, not for the purpose of sterilizing the book, but of dispersing its assailants." The New York Society for the Suppression of Vice threatened to prosecute the publishers on similar grounds. Sml. 8vo pamphlet, (nd) ca. 1915, 8pp. Original yellow wraps; no title at spine, with one horizontal fold and address and canceled stamp at rear cover, o/w very good. Addressed to George Nathan "of the Smart Set", founder and editor of the American Spectator and good friend to Dreiser and Ernest Boyd. OCLC: 29902821. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

[Jihad]
Berlin, 14. XI, 1916. Folio (469 × 314 mm). 3, (1) pp. Promoting jihad: official policy. The diplomat, orientalist, and historian Max von Oppenheim (1860-1946) had published a memorandum as early as 1914 on "revolutionizing the Islamic territories of our enemies", i.e. trying to persuade religious leaders in the Muslim world to call for a Holy War against colonial powers such as Britain and France. Allied to this was a campaign to try and radicalize Muslim prisoners of war (a mosque was even erected in one camp, Wünsdorf - the first ever built in Germany) through printed matter, such as the camp newspaper "El Dschihad". Circulation began on 5 March 1915, with editions produced in Arabic, Russian, and - the largest print-run - Tartar (reaching 91 issues, the last published on 22 October 1918). Similar newspapers, under different names, were also issued in Georgian, Hindi, and Urdu. The only holdings outside Germany located by WorldCat are at the Hoover Institution (Arabic, Russian, and Tartar editions) and the Library of Congress (Russian edition). Not in COPAC. - Toned due to paper stock; two small wormholes at head; creased where previously folded. - ZDB-ID 2079196-3. OCLC 643380726.

Valentin de Pedro
Buenos Aires Araujo Hnos Colección Sarmiento #1, 1916. In-8. 32p. Wrappers. Inscribed by the author to Eugenio C. Noe, witn Noe Ex-Libris. Authors first book. Rare. Valentín de Pedro (Tucumán, 1896-Buenos Aires, 1966) was a journalist, novelist, theatrical author, essayist and occasional poet. He lived in Madrid from the end of the 1910s until 1941, this year in which he was able to return to his native country after suffering the excesses and aftermath of the Civil War. He witnessed in the first person the resistance of the republican militias to the siege of the Spanish capital by Franco's troops and their triumph over Madrid at the end of March 1939. Given his affiliation with the CNT and his rants on Against the military rebellion published in Confederate newspapers such as El Sindicalista, CNT or Castilla Libre, the author is arrested in April 39 and taken first to Las Salesas prison and then to the death row gallery of the dreaded Porlier prison , where he spends several months. There he will live bitter days in the midst of a climate of tremendous misery and desolation, and will coincide with a series of personalities from the political, literary and journalistic fields that formed an important part of the Spanish intellectuality of the time. Upon his return to Argentina, the writer is given the task of recording his experiences of the war and his passage through the prisons of Franco. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

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.

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.

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.

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]

[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]

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.
