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]

JOYCE, James.
New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind. Housed in a dark blue flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery. Cloth lightly rubbed at extremities with a few tiny marks. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing, and a very attractive copy of Joyce's first novel. 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. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, first published on 29 December 1916. He sent from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April. Slocum & Cahoon A11.

JOYCE, James.
New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind lettered front cover. Housed in a blue morocco backed slipcase and chemise. Very slight rubbing to ends and corners, two very minor white marks to front board, otherwise all sound and bright and generally in excellent condition. First edition, first printing, a lovely copy from the library of Alfred A. Knopf (1892-1984), a titan of American publishing, with his bookplate to the front pastedown, and the later bookplate of collector John Stuart Groves. Due at least in part to the hostile reaction to its serialization in The Egoist, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, on 29 December 1916. He reserved from his print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies originally issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March 1917 and called for a second printing by April.

Signed by the author and with an original colored pencil and ink drawing of the hills of Ireland on the title page, "George Russell A.E." In near fine condition.

Pages are very clean with slight foxing and little to no markings and foxing. Contains Black and White Illustrations. Overall in very good condition. 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.

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.

[2], iv, 211, [1]blank pp. Simla, Government Monotype Press, (issued 19th of February) ?The political situation in Baghdad and Mesopotamia is intimately concerned with that in the Persian Gulf? (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]

Kansas City, Mo, 1916. Still very good.. Folding map, 17 x 17 inches. Color printed. Original printed wrappers. Light wear and soiling to wraps. A couple of short separations along foldlines; a pair of minor nicks at lower right corner of map. Small patch of adhesive staining at upper left; light tanning. An unrecorded real estate plat map and promotional for Noble County published in 1916 for distribution by the First National Bank in Perry, the county seat. The county lies north of Stillwater, near the northeastern corner of the state. The present map shows each township, platted and shaded in one of three colors, delineates state highways and railroads running through the county, and locates schools and post offices. A short text on the inside of the front wrapper hails the fertility of county land for agriculture, recent oil discoveries, and plentiful transportation links, and encourages potential land buyers to visit the bank for more information. "Noble County is one of the best agricultural Counties in Oklahoma. The total area of the county is about 675 square miles. Less than half of this land is in cultivation. Buffalo, Bressie, Carson, Oto and Missouri townships were parts of the Ponca and Oto Reservations and a large share of the land in these townships is still Indian allotments. This land is gradually being sold and made into fine farms and will soon all be in the white man's possession." The reservations of the Ponca and Oto-Missouri Indians were alloted and opened for sale in 1904. An attractive World War I-era real estate map for rural Oklahoma … [Click Below for Full Description]

Muir, John
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 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 destiny … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

The reports include information on the design and technical specifications for the railroad’s buildings, bridges, and related structures, progress of construction, and expenditures. In 1924 the AEC was reorganized as the Alaska Railroad Commission. That the set was in the personal library of Judge James Wickersham, esteemed Alaskana bibliographer and collector, makes a particularly desirable set.
