Hi, This lot is an Original 1916 Wisden Paperback with facsimile spine. This is in Very Good condition, the only two things to note is a small rubbing to the front cover on the right and the spine is a slightly different colour to the book. Other than that is is magnificent and a very rare year. The covers are clean, nice and tall. They are nice and bright yellow too. A nice new spine with text has been added , it is neat and tidy but not an exact copy of an original Wisden. Excellent inside with clean pages and tightly bound. Tip top. New spine professionally added which makes the book readable and stops it falling apart. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

SITWELL, Edith; Wilfred Owen; Nancy Cunard; Aldous Huxley; Iris Tree, and others.
Oxford: B. H. Blackwell, 1916-21. 6 volumes, octavo. Publisher's cloth-backed pictorial paper boards, vols. 2-6 with titles to printed spine labels, vols. 3-5 with pictorial endpapers, vols. 1-3 untrimmed and partly unopened. Extremities bumped and worn, rubbed, lightly soiled, vol. 1 with light foxing; still a very good set. Boards illustrated by Futurist Gino Severini, C. W. Beaumont, and Vorticists William Roberts and Lawrence Atkinson. First editions, first impressions, the sixth volume with "presentation copy" embossed on the title page. Very scarce complete set of Edith Sitwell's annual anthology, her first serious venture as poet and editor. "A modernistic venture that aroused the ire of conservative critics. Her own poems published in Wheels occasioned even more negative responses, especially 'The Mother', which served as the lead poem in her first published collection, The Mother and other Poems (1915)" (ODNB). In addition to the Sitwell siblings, the anthology's six cycles include work by Nancy Cunard, Iris Tree, Aldous Huxley, and Wilfred Owen (the 1919 fourth cycle is dedicated to his memory, preceding the 1920 first edition of his poems edited by Siegfried Sassoon), among others. Only 500 copies of the first volume were printed (followed by a second edition, in red cloth, also of 500 copies), 750 for the second, 1000 for the following two, but Fifoot notes that the printers and publishers' records of the print run for the last two volumes were either lost or destroyed.

[California]
Los Angeles: Automobile Club of Southern California, 1916. Very good.. Folding map, 44 x 22.5 inches. Original printed wrappers. Light creasing and wear to wraps. A few small chips along left map edge. Minor loss along one fold line, slightly affecting map image. The first edition of this rare and detailed map of roads across California, issued by the Automobile Club of Southern California in 1916. In addition to minutely delineating the major and minor auto routes, the map shows geographical features, topography, and rail lines, as well as locations of club branches and information offices. The California state highway system, though inaugurated in 1896, began its first period of sustained growth and construction during the 1910s, after the passage of the State Highways Act in 1909. This map was published while a second bond issue was being considered (and eventually approved) by the state legislature for the completion of the system. This map therefore provides a detailed and fascinating view of an early, major state highway system nearing completion. The second edition, issued the following year, is more common. Of the present work we locate only two copies, at Harvard and the Huntington.

Eagle Pass, Tx: Guide Print Co, 1916. Very good.. [14]pp. 16mo. Original printed wrappers, stapled. Minor wear to covers, light chipping to lower edge. Internally clean. An ephemeral work that prints regulations for automobile traffic in Eagle Pass, Texas, a border town slightly southwest of San Antonio on the Rio Grande. Many of the rules address cars for hire in town, and attempt to govern fares for various common trips, including to locations in Mexico. It should cost fifty cents for one passenger to cross into Piedras Negras, for example, and much more to various mining and ranching operations in the area. Other rules discuss mandatory hand signals and tail lights, and attempt to organize "jitney" services in town. Not in OCLC.

Texas]: Trlica, John P., photographer
Jno. P. Trlica, Granger, Tx, 1916. Panoramic photograph, 8 x 31 1/2 inches. A few short tears and nicks in the edges. Noticeable foxing on verso, minor surface wear, some soiling. Overall good plus. An interesting yard-long photograph of the members of a Texas-based fraternal organization for Czech immigrants, taken by notable Czech- Texan photographer John P. Trlica who was himself a member of the same organization. The title of the photograph is printed in Czech, but indicates that the image features the members of the seventh congress of the Slovanska Podporujici Jednota Statu Texas (SPJST) in Galveston in 1916, essentially a state convention for the organization. A handful of women, likely the wives of some of the members, are shown at right edge of the image. A first-generation Czech-Texan, photographer John P. Trlica was born in Hallettsville, Texas in 1882. After working as a cotton picker, a salesman, and a bookkeeper for a general store in his late-teens and twenties, Trlica grew fascinated with the camera in the first decade of the 20th century. Each summer between 1909 and 1915, he attended the Eastman Kodak traveling school, and then ran his own studio until 1922, at which time he sold the business and opened a general goods store in Granger. Unable to shake the siren call of the photographer's life, Trlica opened another photography studio in Granger two years later, and found much more success with this second incarnation. The present photograph carries the hallmarks of a photographer in the early years of his craft. Some of the figures at left appear a bit bl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bilateral old folds otherwise very good. Intelligence Division War Office, Corrected and Printed for the Admiralty War Staff, February An signed relic of Shackleton's wartime service. The recipient, Elizabeth Dawson-Lambton, was a major benefactor of the Endurance Expedition, with a glacier on the Weddell Sea named in her honour. Sir Ernest Shackleton's Endurance Expedition departed for the Antarctic continent on August 4th 1914, as the dark clouds of the First World War were gathering. Having received special dispensation from the Admiralty not to abort the mission in favour of war work, the crew remerged in June 1916 to a world much changed. As if the epic ordeal they had been through in the south was not enough, after a brief reprise back home, the majority of the crew immediately enlisted for military or naval service. Shackleton's superior leadership skills and experience in frozen conditions made him a perfect candidate to join the British Expeditionary Force campaign against the Bolsheviks in Archangel and Murmansk. The Arctic Russian frontier brought Allied troops into contact with harsher and more extreme conditions than any other theatre of the war. Shackleton's appointment as a temporary Major to the Syren force not only boosted morale considerably, but he also brought invaluable expertise to the job of organising winter supplies and equipment, and the use of sledges … [Click Below for Full Description]

[EINSTEIN, ALBERT]. SCHWARZSCHILD, KARL
Berlin: Verlag der Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1916. First edition. RARE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF KARL SCHWARSCHILD'S DISCOVERY OF THE FIRST EXACT SOLUTION TO THE FIELD EQUATIONS OF EINSTEIN'S GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY -- A SOLUTION THAT PROVIDED THE KEY TO PREDICTING THE ORBITS OF PLANETS AND SATELLITES. By the end of 1915, Albert Einstein had published the final version of the field equation of general relativity (the "Einstein Field Equation", or EFE), which relates distributions of matter and energy to the geometry of the spacetime surrounding those distributions. A key remaining task was developing solutions to the equation -- i.e., descriptions of specific spacetime geometries that, when associated with specific distributions of matter and energy, satisfy the EFE. This was no trivial task. The EFE actually represents, in a highly compressed notation, ten separate second-order differential equations. "As differential equations, [the EFEs] are extremely complicated; the Ricci scalar and tensor are contractions of the Riemann tensor, which involves derivatives and products of the Christoffel symbols, which in turn involve the inverse metric and derivatives of the metric. ... The equations are also nonlinear .... It is therefore very difficult to solve [the EFE] in any sort of generality ...." (Sean M. Carroll, Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity, 2004). A solution to the EFE takes the form of a "metric tensor" (or "metric" for short) -- a mathematical description of a particular spacetime geometry. The metric can be … [Click Below for Full Description]
