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 means, as it should, that this is a first Trade impression/printing). 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 very clean copy internally. The black mounting paper holding the tipped on frontispiece is detached which is not unknown, in both American and English editions, due to the fragility of the paper. Bound in its original grey paper boards, the upper one with a design by Thomas Sturge Moore, and buff coloured cloth spine, as issued. The top edge is trimmed, while the fore and bottom edges are untrimmed. A few slight marks on the upper board and the spine is a little browned but a near fine, very firm copy. Loosely inserted is a newspaper clipping concerning Alick Schepeler. Complete with its cardboard slip case, with a printed title label on one edge. It looks like it has the same grey paper as on the book but this is a poor example which is rather worn, with fading and darkening and has some loss of a little over one inch from one edge. However it has fulfilled its purpose of keeping the book protected, and to find one with the book appears to be a rare occurrence: I can't trace another! Wade 112.

Strub, Heiri
128 x 90,5 cm, Zustand A. Heinrich Strub (1916-2014) war der Sohn des Meteorologen und basel-städtischen Grossrats Walter Strub (1882-1938) und dessen Frau Margrit, geb. Saxer (1886-1970). Er wuchs im kommunistisch geprägten Elternhaus in Riehen auf. Von 1934 bis 1938 absolvierte er eine Schriftsetzerlehre in der Buchdruckerei Stobel in Basel. Daneben gestaltete er Bühnenbilder wie zum Beispiel für die Scheinwerfer, eine 1935 gegründete Basler Agitproptruppe. Von 1939 bis 1942 besuchte er, unterbrochen von Aktivdiensteinsätzen, die Kunstgewerbeschule in Basel und erhielt Unterricht bei Alfred Soder, Theo Ballmer, Georg Schmidt und Arnold Fiechter. 1943 erfolgte die Heirat mit Liselotte (Lotti) Arnold (1919-2013), Tochter Olga kam 1950 zur Welt. Arbeit fand er in diesen Jahren bei der National-Zeitung als Setzer und bei der Basler Druck und Verlag AG als Gestalter von Plakaten. Im Oktober 1944 gehörte Strub zu den Gründungsmitgliedern der Partei der Arbeit (PdA) in Basel. Als kommunistischer Parteigänger konnte Strub für sich und seine Familie in der Schweiz nicht die nötige Existenzgrundlage erwirtschaften, was ihn 1957 samt Familie zur Emigration in die DDR veranlasste. 1971 kehrten sie nach Basel zurück. Beim wöchentlich erscheinenden Parteiorgan Vorwärts wirkte Strub bis 1981 als Lokalredaktor für Basel und Region, und ab 1972 sass er für die PdA im Grossen Rat des Kantons Basel-Stadt. Am 22. April 2014 starb er im Alter von 97 Jahren an seinem Wohnort Basel.

Most of the photos feature the family standing together smiling in front of their home or visiting different locations like the beach and the city. Some of the locations include Cherry Beach and Walpole Island in Canada, Algonac Michigan; and Chicago. Several pictures are of the woman making silly faces and running around the woods.

In 1993 the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for their indirect observation, and only in 2015 they could be finally observed directly.

First offprint in the original wrappers, of this important paper by Einstein about electromagnetism. Condition: Wrappers minimally dusty, otherwise very well preserved copy. Rarity: According to Weil early offprints of Einstein's papers may also be qualified as original and also highly collectable editions, however they were printed in a certain, but still small print run for commercial use (mainly to sell them to fellow natural scientists): „No doubt, the first appearance in a periodical is the „original edition", but I have to leave it open for collectors, librarians and others to decide whether these offprints in wrappers, mostly with a printed title on them (especially in the »Sitzungsberichte der Königlich Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften«) are also „original editions". These offprints are printed from the same setting as the text, but often with new pagination." (p. 4).

Letterpress on machine paper, in original publisher's brochure on brown stock with black title printing. True author's presentation offprint in the original wrappers, of Einstein's obituary for Austrian physicist and philosopher Ernst Mach.

Rarity: Present copy is imprinted „Überreicht vom Verfasser" (presented by the author) on the upper right corner of the first page, which indicates it's utmost rarity, as author's presentation offprints of Einstein papers, from any journal or any period, were printed in a small print run for the use of the author only.

The recipient was the artist Norman Wilkinson who was a British artist who was primarily a marine painter, but also an illustrator, poster artist, and wartime camoufleur. Wilkinson invented dazzle painting to protect merchant shipping during the First World War. Firbank's scarce second novel with only 500 copies issued. Albert Rutherston (formerly Rothenstein) contributes two B/W illustrations to the book. The frontis is reproduced in colour on the wrapper front panel to striking effect. Scarce with such attributes. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

The author's copies with his annotations to the fly leaves, "Rain Before Seven" with a portion of a printed wraparound band loosely inserted showing press reviews. Publisher's cloth, four volumes ("The Road to Nowhere", "Shepherd's Warning", "Dead Reckoning" and "The Evil that Men Do") still with their d.w.'s, some loss to edges, particularly to two of the heads of the spines, "Rain Before Seven" with light wear to the top of the cloth spine. A remarkable set of Leadbitter's own copies of all six of his novels. With the exception of "Rain Before Seven", in which he has only noted the date of publication in America, Leadbitter has listed on the fly leaves the dates the novels were begun and finished plus revision and final publication dates, and in two cases noted early drafts under different titles. Leadbitter had a distinguished career as a civil servant, and his novels, written in his 20s and early 30s, have been largely forgotten. [Attributes: First Edition]

Erfurth, Hugo (1874-1948).
Dresden, 1916. 10 x 7,3 cm (Fotografie); 19,8 x 13,2 cm (Unterlagekarton). Mit einer handschriftlichen Widmung von Georg Gelbke aus dem Jahr 1918 an Frau Christa von Wiebalin am unteren Rand. Hugo Erfurth (* 14. Oktober 1874 in Halle (Saale); † 14. Februar 1948 in Gaienhofen) war ein deutscher Fotograf. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Porträtfotografen seiner Zeit. Georg Hermann Gelbke (* 12. September 1882 in Rochlitz, Sachsen; † 17. März 1947 in Dresden) war ein sächsischer Maler und Grafiker, der viel in Ostpreußen wirkte. Georg Gelbke stammte aus einer patriarchischen Arztfamilie und studierte an der Kunstakademie Dresden, wo er auch Richard Birnstengel kennenlernte, mit dem ihn viele Gemeinsamkeiten verbanden. Seine Studienreisen führten ihn nach Böhmen, Paris, Korsika und Dalmatien. Ein kunstsinniger Gutsverwalter bei Dresden ließ seine Töchter von Birnstengel und Gelbke im Zeichnen unterrichten, mit der Folge, dass beide eine der Töchter heirateten und damit verschwägert wurden. In einem Haus in der Nähe des Dresdner Hauptbahnhofes befanden sich Tür an Tür ihre Ateliers. Gelbke war nach 1930 mehrmals zu Gast in Nidden, wo Birnstengel ein Haus hatte und die beiden gemeinsame Werke, vor allem Winterbilder der kurischen Landschaft schufen. Seine Lieblingsmotive fand er in den Fischerdörfern auf der Nehrung. Ein Teil dieser Gemälde ist heute in den Archivbeständen des Kulturhistorischen Museums der Hansestadt Stralsund zu finden, der andere Teil befindet sich in Privatbesitz. Georg Gelbke war Mitglied im Deutschen Künstlerbund. Erfurth, Hugo (1874-1948). Portrait of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wildemann, Anneliese (1. Hälfte 20. Jahrhundert)
1916. Pinsel in Schwarz, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf festem gelblichem Karton, rechts unten signiert und datiert ?Anneliese Wildeman 13.?. 28,4:25,6 cm. Insgesamt nicht ganz frisch. Provenienz: Hans-Franck-Archiv, Berlin. Der dekorativ-phantasievolle Entwurf dokumentiert, daß diese Künstlerin, über die weiter nichts bekannt ist, mit dem Pinsel gekonnt umzugehen wußte. Sie fand u.a. Erwähnung in einem Artikel der Monatshefte für Kunstwissenschaft, IX. Jahrgang 1916 (liegt nicht vor). Die Herkunft des Blattes läßt vermuten, daß Anneliese Wildemann ein Bühnenbild für ein Stück von Hans Franck entwarf, der 1914-1921 als Dramaturg für das Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus und als Leiter der angegliederten Düsseldorfer Theater-Akademie, später Hochschule für Bühnenkunst, tätig war.

Yizkor Book in Yiddish published by Poalei Tziyon in New York 1916. This book was published by Poalei Tziyon (Workers of Zion)* in 1916 to commemorate fallen comrades and others, some who had settled in Zion, then Ottoman Palestine. This book is notable for memorial pages mentioning Moshe Barsky, who, at age 18, was the first Kibbutz casualty of the Arab-Jewish conflict on Degania Aleph, the first Kibbutz. The book cover is in rough condition, and is well worn, with possible moisture exposure. The white graphic on the cover is partially intact, and spells 'yizkor' with tears dropping from it. The binding is in good condition and the interior pages are in very good condition, with beautiful illustrations, portraits and silver ink on black printing. The book is entirely in Yiddish. *an organization Poale Zion (also spelled Poalei Tziyon or Poaley Syjon, meaning "Workers of Zion") was a movement of Marxist-Zionist Jewish workers founded in various cities of Poland, Europe and the Russian Empire in about the turn of the 20th century after the Bund rejected Zionism in 1901.

Andersen, Hans Christian; Clarke, Harry (Illustrator)
New York: Brentano's, [1916]. Clarke, Harry. First Edition. First American edition, quarto size, 320 pp. Hans Christian Andersen's (1805-1875) "Fairy Tales" have been beloved by both children and adults ever since they were first published, with some tales appearing as early as 1835. Often containing a moral story clothed in fantasy, but less dark than the Grimms' tales, they have been translated into 125 different languages and many of the stories have been adapted to stage and screen. One only has to give the names for the stories to infuse our minds: Thumbelina, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, The Snow Queen, and many more. This version is illustrated by Irish artist Harry Clarke (1890-1931), who was apprenticed to his father, the head of a large firm of stained glass artists, in 1906. An accomplished glass artist whose work can be seen in both secular and religious settings, Clarke's illustrations can be compared to that of Aubrey Beardsley, Kay Nielson, and Edmund Dulac, taken up during the tail end of what was considered the Golden Age of Illustration; his work is often imbued with a sinister atmosphere also exemplified by Beardsley. "Fairy Tales. . ." was published shortly before Clarke's career-making work for Edgar Allan Poe's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination"; the highly detailed drawings take on an almost psychedelic quality, far ahead of their time, and their eerie beauty still fascinates today. ___DESCRIPTION: Full original grey cloth titled and illustrated in black to the front board and spine, with an oval-cut paper illustration mounted to the … [Click Below for Full Description]
