MORGAN, Emanuel and Anne Knish [pseud. Witter Bynner and Arthur
Mitchell Kennerly, 1916. First Edition. Small 8vo. Original printed boards. Covers rubbed with some damping. Internally near fine with damping only faintly continuing to first few leaves. Good overall. INSCRIBED by Witter Bynner to Karl Shapiro: "Emanuel Morgan / has asked me to / send Karl Shapiro / this stray copy / of Spectra which / has turned up / in my house. / So here it goes, / with greetings / from / Witter Bynner / Santa Fe / March 11 / 1953." An excellent association of this infamous poetic hoax, inscribed by Witter Bynner to Karl Shapiro. Shapiro served as Poet Laureate at the Library of Congress, the same entity which administers the Witter Bynner Prize, given each year to two poets selected by the current Poet Laureate. A satire directed at the experimental "isms" invented and championed by Ezra Pound from 1912-1915, Imagism & Vorticism, SPECTRA instead was mistaken as that which is was attempting to mock: a new verse movement.

1916. This is a 435p report to Ameerican military authorities on Russian army organization and combat in 1915. The report was written by an American army officer who was on the battlefields and had daily contact with Russian army officers. Mounted in the typescript are over 200 period photos, drawings and fold-outs of Russian weaponry, soldiers, equipment and battlefield positions. There is a detailed index, but no indication of who wrote the report and no title page. The report is bound in a brown fabric-like cloth with leather spine and corners. It measures 8x13, is 2 1/4 in. thick. There is a two inch chip off the spine bottom.Following are a few excerpts from the report. "The officer told me he got most if his information from prisoners. The Germans told us everything they knew immediately. Probably because Russian prisoners were tortured and hoped to avoid such treatment."."The spies were mostly Jews. Against their poor training the Russiand made a poor showing."."Their system of transporting a machine gun on a cart is very superior to ours in which we use mules to transport the guns"."One of the tricks the Russians used was to build a fire between the Russian and German lines. then soak the ground in oil and light it when the enemy attacked. This would illuminate the enemy position"."All the cities and towns behind the lines were filled with whores. Periodically they were rounded up and shipped to the interior. But they seemed to get back rapidly using troop trains." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cultivó la Astronomía, la Filosofía y las Ciencias naturales. Era una conciencia autónoma, y, por ello, sus contemporáneos le miraron con ojos de hostilidad, considerándole como un temible heterodoxo.

JOYCE, James
New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. 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.

[DANCE]. GENTHE, ARNOLD; DUNCAN, ISADORA
New York: Arnold Genthe, 1916. framed. Very Good. EXQUISITE ICONIC PHOTOGRAPH OF ISADORA DUNCAN BY ARNOLD GENTHE. "In the early 20th century, a new form of dance was emerging, one fostered by periods of experimentation in European cities and transferred to American stages by impassioned personalities led by Isadora Duncan. As this new, modern dance both challenged and influenced other dances from ballet to vaudeville, the lines between these forms became blurred allowing for a cacophony of creative expression. The dance world was expanding and changing in a myriad of ways, and nowhere was that more evident than in New York City, where high and low dance shared the same urban space and exchanged ideas and inspiration. Modern dance, as with other modernist movements of the time, sought new forms with which to express the spirit of modern times, and as Duncan phrased it, to express 'the free spirit, who will inhabit the body of the new woman; more glorious than any woman that has yet been... the highest intelligence in the freest body.' 

"As modern dance developed and evolved, dance photography also began to develop, influenced by photographer Arnold Genthe (1869-1942), who utilized his signature style to capture dancers 'in the free movement of the dance.' ... Genthe avoided posed photographs, choosing to capture his subjects in an unobtrusive manner, the better to express the essence of a human being. This same principle he applied to his dance photography. Here it was not just the soul and spirit of the dancer he sought to capture, but the motion of the dance, those ' … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson; Illustrated by Ray F. Coyle
John Henry Nash, 1916. Illustrated by: Ray F. Coyle. Quarto. Hard Cover. Limited Edition, numbered 53 of 165 copies. Attractive printing of Cobden-Sanderson's influential treatise on book making, this by John Henry Nash. This is among the finest printings of The Ideal Book, as Nash had a sensibility in printing that was sympathetic to Cobden-Sanderson's. Bound in delicate laid paper over boards with a wraparound printed title label; paper at joints is splitting as is common. Accompanied by a later edition printed by students and faculty at University of Oregon, John Henry Nash Fine Arts Press (1933), and limited to 50 copies of which this is #29; this copy is bound in marbled paper over boards and titled in gold on the spine, quite a lovely edition that by no means looks to be student work; both housed in a clamshell. Very Good binding. [Attributes: First Edition]

Keller, Helen
Wrentham, Mass: November 5, [1916]. 2 pp. 4to. "How dark and empty the world would be without her!" A touching testament by Keller to the importance of her teacher and life-long companion, Anne Sullivan [Macy]. "My teacher and I thank you, not only for your sympathy and friendship, but also for your beautiful understanding of our affection for each other. My life has lived in hers so long that when I am away from her even a few days, I feel quite adrift. So you can imagine how anxious I have felt during her illness. I have wondered what would become of me if anything happened to her. How dark and empty the world would be without her! I should be left without purpose, prospect or horizon. I cannot make friends lightly or part with them lightly, then how impossible it would be for another woman to fill the void in my life that Mrs. Macy has filled all these years! You will be glad to hear that she is much better now ... She is planning to go up to Lake Placid the end of this week ... When she leaves, I am to go home with my mother to spend at least part of the winter...." In 1887, twenty year old Anne Sullivan, freshly graduated from Boston's Perkins Institute for the Blind, was hired as tutor to 7-year-old Helen Keller, thus beginning a fabled 49 year relationship which saw the two scarcely apart. When Keller graduated from Radcliffe in 1904, they moved together to a farmhouse in Wrentham, Massachusetts, where this letter was composed. One of their frequent vistors was John Albert Macy, a young instructor at Harvard, whom Sullivan would marry. Sullivan fell seriously ill in … [Click Below for Full Description]

1916. Condition: Acceptable. "A limited edition of thirty-five portfolios each containing twelve hand-pulled proofs has been issued, of which this is No. 29." Signed below by Walter Henry Cassebeer. Cassebeer was an architect and important figure in the Rochester cultural scene, but was also regarded as an avid artist, bibliophile, horticulturist, and historian. He designed several churches in and around Rochester, as well as some of the landscapes of Durand Eastman Park. This particular copy includes 10 of the original 12 prints, with #1 (Main Street Looking West) and #3 (Blast Furnace, Charlotte) missing. The prints are all signed and dated in pencil by Cassebeer, and remain in very good condition. There is light dampstaining to the interior text, including the title and signature pages. The original gray binding, with the title on a paper label, has light wear and scuffing, along with dampstaining to the back cover. A relatively scarce collection.

No. 5.A." printed at lower inner corner. With titling and composer's signature to upper margin of first page of music.

"Gradually he came to be recognized as one of the leading musical figures in Munich, working as composer, conductor and teacher. His reputation was sealed in 1903 when he was appointed Königlicher Professor at Munich, where his pupils included Furtwängler and Heger." "Although Schillings's earliest efforts at composition were concentrated towards songs, chamber and orchestral music, opera remained his major preoccupation."

(Photographs New York): 1916. Ca. 1916 - 1925. 23 black leaves in use, 27 leaves blank [50 unpaginated leaves]. 31 b/w images (some sepia-toned) of the MARIE under construction in 1916. Following, 19 b/w photographic images by Edwin Levick (with his name and NY stamped to bottom right corner of each photograph) of the SUNSHINE on the water and its impressive interior. Most images of the MARIE 5-1/2" x 3-1/4". Levick images 8" x 10". Oblong format: 10-1/2" x 13-3/4". Black flexible pebbled leatherette album covers, bound by black cord tie. Gilt "Photographs" stamped to front cover. Significant wear to covers (rubbing & chipping to edges of binding). Black leaves somewhat delicate, with light chipping to edges. Item #41500 Edwin Levick was a famous boating photographer, most well-known for his many images of years of America's World Cup races, operating prolificly from the 1910s to the 1940s. Though the first pictures in this book are not attributed to him, it is presumed he was the photographer. The first 31 images follow the construction of the powered boat MARIE, from a simple wooden outline of the hull to completion. The last 19 images are of the luxurious SUNSHINE, of it elegantly gliding on the water and its sumptuous interior rooms, from the kitchen to the staterooms and the lifeboat deck. Though no information was able to be found on the SUNSHINE, we can assume these pictures were taken sometime in the early 1920s.

[DANCE]. GENTHE, ARNOLD; DUNCAN, ISADORA
New York: Arnold Genthe, 1916. framed. Very Good. EXQUISITE ICONIC PHOTOGRAPH OF ISADORA DUNCAN BY ARNOLD GENTHE. "In the early 20th century, a new form of dance was emerging, one fostered by periods of experimentation in European cities and transferred to American stages by impassioned personalities led by Isadora Duncan. As this new, modern dance both challenged and influenced other dances from ballet to vaudeville, the lines between these forms became blurred allowing for a cacophony of creative expression. The dance world was expanding and changing in a myriad of ways, and nowhere was that more evident than in New York City, where high and low dance shared the same urban space and exchanged ideas and inspiration. Modern dance, as with other modernist movements of the time, sought new forms with which to express the spirit of modern times, and as Duncan phrased it, to express 'the free spirit, who will inhabit the body of the new woman; more glorious than any woman that has yet been... the highest intelligence in the freest body.'

"As modern dance developed and evolved, dance photography also began to develop, influenced by photographer Arnold Genthe (1869-1942), who utilized his signature style to capture dancers 'in the free movement of the dance.' ... Genthe avoided posed photographs, choosing to capture his subjects in an unobtrusive manner, the better to express the essence of a human being. This same principle he applied to his dance photography. Here it was not just the soul and spirit of the dancer he sought to capture, but the motion of the dance, … [Click Below for Full Description]

It also includes the poems "Christmas Trees," "In the Home Stretch," "Birches," "Snow," and "The Bonfire," among others. Throughout the volume, Frost grapples with how the choices of the past ultimately shape the future. "The Road Not Taken," the first and most famous poem of the collection, sets up this paradigm with the narrator's decision of which direction to take after reaching a fork in the road - a metaphor for decisions made along the road of life. While he had previously established his talent for verse with his first two poetry collections, Mountain Interval solidified Frost's status as a master poet.
