[Arizona]
Phoenix: F.W. Bower & Richard T. Belcher, 1917. About very good.. Rolled map, 40.5 x 16 inches. Previously folded, with minor wear along old folds and one separation repaired with tape on blank verso. Light toning. This detailed 1917 blueprint map depicts the Verde and Black Canyon copper mining districts in Arizona from Clarkdale and Jerome south to Phoenix. It shows the locations of dozens of mines in this region of Yavapai and northern Maricopa Counties, and delineates the path of the proposed Prescott & Phoenix Short Line Railroad. The route was planned to connect Santa Fe Rail system spurs that went to the mining areas from Ask Fork with Phoenix via a new line from Mayer. Not coincidentally, the compiler of this map, F.W. Bower, hailed from Mayer and was a published booster of mining and rail projects in his area in contemporary industry periodicals. The route had been surveyed from 1910 to 1915, but never built. A scarce depiction of railroad and mining activity north of Phoenix during the late 1910s. Not in OCLC.

"As a rule," wrote O'Shea, the founding editor, in the preface of that first edition, "encyclopedias are apt to be quite formal and technical.

Benn, Gottfried, Schriftsteller (1886-1956).
An den Literaturwissenschaftler Walther Killy (1917-1995) mit Tinte: "Haben Sie vielen Dank für Ihren Besuch. Ich hatte mich sehr gefreut, Sie kennen zu lernen; seit ich das Vorlesungsverzeichnis vom Winter 53/54 las, interessierten Sie mich. Unsere Unterhaltung war mir wirklich interessant. Hinsichtlich der Sache, wegen der Sie kamen, schlage ich - um nicht sofort abzusagen - vor, dass wir uns mit Herrn Prof. K. zu Dritt über die Möglichkeit des Themas und die Richtung, die es nehmen könnte, unterhalten. Ich mag ja Prof. K. menschlich und literarisch so gern, dass ich mit Vergnügen einen Dialog mit ihm abhielte. Aber auf der anderen Seite bin ich innerlich und äusserlich etwas müde und gehe nicht mehr in die Öffentlichkeit. Also wir wollen sehn. Bitte, wenn Sie einverstanden sind, arrangieren Sie diese Zusammenkunft: bei Prof. K., in Ihrem Seminar oder bei mir oder wo es Ihnen passt [...]" - Killy lehrte 1951-61 an der FU Berlin. - Sehr schöner Brief.

Holmes, Jr., Oliver Wendell
1917. Rare autograph letter signed by and entirely in the hand of Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. Dated November 18, 1917, the letter is on Holmes' Supreme Court of the United States letterhead and addressed to Howard Jacobs. The letter reads, "Dear Sir, A visit to Harris & Ewing and inspection of their proofs left me unable to believe that any of those shown me correspond to the one I sighted this morning. Therefore if you are willing to adhere to your kind offer, I should be greatly obliged if you would get them to send me a proof of the one you identify. I want half a dozen, but I want to be sure I get the same. O.W. Holmes." In very good condition. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age 90, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history.

1917. Quarto. Measuring 9" x 10". String-tied paper boards. Contains 125 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 3.5" x 5.5", with captions in Czech. Album is very good with creasing and edgewear with near fine photographs; additionally present are 46 real photo post cards on similar subject matter. A wonderful collection of battlefield and encampment photographs taken by a Czech-Slav soldier while stationed in Prague during the First World War. Many of the images capture Czech troops in group photos, on horseback, and in their camps around Prague, and on the Russian and Italian Fronts. The Czechs are frequently seen in trenches and on lookout duty peering over the stone walls and ancient ruins used for fortifications. Religious ceremonies were a big part of their camp and makeshift outdoor churches were constructed with alters for worship. One photo shows rows of troops facing an altar with their guns set up behind them. There are also photos of funerals and burial sites throughout the album. The landscape of the countries the soldiers traveled is displayed in snapshots of monuments, religious sites, historic homes, and the nature and flora of the area. He also captured images of the local people, usually on the road while fleeing towns or returning to their homes. A small panoramic photo shows the troops on a field looking out in the distance, presumably awaiting the enemy. One photo shows two men practicing hand-to-hand combat with swords drawn and another shows a man looking over a trench wall with his gun drawn. The Czech … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROBBINS, C.A. "Tod"
John Lane Company, New York, 1917. First edition. Fine in lovely near fine example of the dustwrapper with a tear on the rear panel, tiny nicks at the extremities, and with old tape repairs professionally removed leaving shadows only on the inside of the jacket. Housed in an attractive, albeit loosely-fitting clamshell case. Creepy crime novel about a team of circus freaks: Tweedledee, a midget, Hercules, the strong man, and Echo, the ventriloquist, who commit heinous crimes. Filmed twice by MGM, as a silent in 1925 and remade as a talkie with Lon Chaney as Echo and Henry Earles as Tweedledee in both versions. Victor McLaughlin played Hercules in the silent version, Ivan Linow in the talkie. In the classic Tod Browning cult film *Freaks*, also based on the Robbins story "Spurs" that was clearly derivative from *The Unholy Three*, Earles reprised his midget role, there was a strongman named Hercules, and a few other freaks were thrown into the mix. Rare in jacket, and never seen in this condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

PEYTON, Fountain
R.L. Pendleton, Washington, [DC], 1917. First edition. Small octavo. 24pp. Stapled beige printed wraps. Frontispiece portrait of Aldridge in the role of Othello. A few short chips at the edges of the slightly oversize wrappers, else very good or better. A very scarce early work on Ira Aldridge, a pre-eminent African-American Shakespearean actor, who was honored with a memorial plaque at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, and who gained international recognition on the London and European stages. Although Aldridge made his debut in New York City in the role of Rolla in "Pizarro," he found opportunities for a black actor very limited in the United States. In 1824, he emigrated to England, and attended the University of Glasgow for a time. He returned to London in 1825 and made his debut as Othello at the Royal Theatre in 1826. According to this sketch: "The better critics agree that Mr. Aldridge was one of the greatest Othellos. Edmund Kean (the renowned English actor) supported a like opinion by choosing him as Othello to his Iago at Belfast, Ireland." Aldridge continued to work in England, Ireland, and on the continent for the next four decades until his death in Poland in 1927. This brief sketch of his career by Peyton highlights Aldridge's African background (disputed by later biographers), the prejudices he faced, and the many roles he portrayed. Fountain Peyton was a graduate of Howard Law School Class of 1890 and was involved in the Board of Education in Washington, DC for a number of years. Additionally, R.L. Pendleton is listed as an African-Americ … [Click Below for Full Description]

T. S. Eliot
London: The Egoist Ltd, 1917. Prufrock and other observations by T. S. Eliot First edition of the author's first book; From the library of John Rodker, poet and founder of the Ovid Press, and one of Eliot's early publishers London: The Egoist Ltd., 1917. First edition. 40 pp. Bound in publisher's stiff wraps printed in black. From the library of Modernist poet and publisher John Rodker, with laid in typed correspondence between Rodker's daughter Joan and a British bookseller regarding the sale of some of Rodker's books, with an attached list including Prufrock. Rodker was a friend of Eliot's, and is best known for founding the Ovid Press. Though this endeavor was short-lived (1918-20), its roster boasted a who's who of Modernist luminaries, publishing hand-printed works by Eliot, Ezra Pound, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Wyndham Lewis, Edward Wadsworth, Clive Bell and Roger Fry. In 1922, Rodker worked with The Egoist Press to publish the first London edition (or, more precisely, the second impression of the first edition) of James Joyce's Ulysses. Very Good. Covers toned, with light wear at spine ends and creasing to the rear cover. Small smudge to verso of title page. Hinge exposed at page 24. Light crease and smudging to top corner of pages 37 and 40. The titular poem was first published in a 1915 issue of Poetry: A Magazine of Verse, then here as part of this twelve-poem pamphlet. It is seen as a pivotal moment in which poetry shifted from late 19th-century Romantic verse and Georgian lyrics, catapulting toward Modernism.

Benn, Gottfried, Schriftsteller (1886-1956).
An den Literaturwissenschaftler Walther Killy (1917-1995) mit Tinte: "Haben Sie vielen Dank für Ihren Besuch. Ich hatte mich sehr gefreut, Sie kennen zu lernen; seit ich das Vorlesungsverzeichnis vom Winter 53/54 las, interessierten Sie mich. Unsere Unterhaltung war mir wirklich interessant. Hinsichtlich der Sache, wegen der Sie kamen, schlage ich - um nicht sofort abzusagen - vor, dass wir uns mit Herrn Prof. K. zu Dritt über die Möglichkeit des Themas und die Richtung, die es nehmen könnte, unterhalten. Ich mag ja Prof. K. menschlich und literarisch so gern, dass ich mit Vergnügen einen Dialog mit ihm abhielte. Aber auf der anderen Seite bin ich innerlich und äusserlich etwas müde und gehe nicht mehr in die Öffentlichkeit. Also wir wollen sehn. Bitte, wenn Sie einverstanden sind, arrangieren Sie diese Zusammenkunft: bei Prof. K., in Ihrem Seminar oder bei mir oder wo es Ihnen passt [...]" - Killy lehrte 1951-61 an der FU Berlin. - Sehr schöner Brief.

Seton, Julia, M.D.
Edward J. Clode, 1917. [a very nice copy, minimal shelfwear, light age-toning to edges of text block; jacket has a handful of tiny edge-nicks, very slight paper loss at top right corner of front panel, tiny closed tear and associated short creasing at the left end of the upper edge of the front panel]. This occult-tinged metaphysical romance represented one of the few attempts to incorporate, in a fictional format, the tenets of the "New Thought" movement. New Thought (sometimes referred to as "Law of Attraction") is a spiritual movement with its roots in metaphysical beliefs; its origins can be traced back to the 18th century, although its principal progenitor through the middle of the 19th century was one Phineas P. Quimby, who believed in the power of "mental healing," primarily through the use of hypnotism (or mesmerism, as it was then called). He may or may not be considered the "founder" of the New Thought movement (opinions differ), but in any case his writings and teachings were very influential in its growth, and by the early 20th century there were already numerous offshoots and ancillary organizations -- one of which, the Church of the New Civilization, was founded and led by none other than Julia Seton, M.D. (then known by her married name, Julia Seton Sears; she divorced the Rev. Sears in 1914). Like most religions, there was a fair amount of mumbo-jumbo involved, e.g. this bit, from the book's "Introductory": "This book was born on the table lands of revealed human experiences; it is the consciousness of God in the human soul, worked out in true, natural, idea … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOYCE, James.
London: Egoist Press,, 1917. FIRST UK PRINTING - PRESENTATION COPY Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to upper board in blind and to spine gilt. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contents browned, spine cocked and severely sunned. Very good. So-called second edition; the first edition to be printed in the UK. This edition was preceded by the English issue of the Huebsch edition of 1916. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the half title page, "To George and Mary Slocombe James Joyce Paris 7. i. 926"; George Slocombe was an English journalist writing for the American papers. He also wrote a book called The Heart of France - Parisian, provincial & peasant, etc (1934). He reviewed Ulysses when it came out, and he is listed by Joyce as one of the select recipients of a press copy. Joyce's inscription usually appears on the front free endpaper; in this copy, however, that space is occupied by the inscription of the book's first owner, Allan Ross Macdougall, an American in Paris, friend and later biographer of Isadora Duncan. Presentation copies of this printing are rare and examples with such interesting Parisian provenance are exceptional in all regards. Slocum & Cahoon A12 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

ANDERSON, Corporal Paul G.
Washington, D.C, Virginia, 1917. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 12" x 7". String-tied textured black cloth over stiff paper boards. Contains 450 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 3.5" x 6", with captions. Very good album with chips, tears, and rubbing with near fine photographs. A photo album kept by Corporal Paul G. Anderson around 1915 that follows him throughout his training with the United States Marine Corps, as well as including photos of his friends and family. The early photos are a collection of family snapshots and candids with friends posed around the family home, many of whom are female. Snaps from a camping excursion show the camp and its inhabitants, girls eating ice cream, two women on a pile of sticks ("beavers and their dams"), and various photos of Anderson with other uniformed soldiers ("friends in the U.S.M.C"). The photos from the Marine Corps, which number about 70, are scattered throughout the album and feature drilling and training photos as well as candids of soldiers. Photos include two men with guns ("steady there!"), another of three men in a row with rifles on their shoulders ("preparedness"), as well as one soldier attacking another on the ground ("this is no joke! Honest!"). Anderson later visited Washington, DC while training in nearby Virginia. Further photos show nurses with their unit standing at the medical station, soldiers posing with cannons, men in military vehicles ("the Kaiser's equals"), and various soldiers standing at a makeshift bar ("wonder if pop is gotten here?").

France, 1917. Oblong quarto. Measuring 12.5" x 10". Black leather photo album. A collection of 244 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 3.5" x 6", some with captions. A good only photo album with detached pages, with very good or better photographs affixed to stiff black paper. An album containing photos of a marina taken around 1915 as well as photos taken by a seaman in World War I. The early photographs show a group of men working on a large ship, both docked and at sea, including images of passing ships, men at the ship's wheel, and one of an unnamed lighthouse. After a break in the album, the second half shows service with either the Marines or Navy during World War I as part of the 1st American Expeditionary Force to France on the *U.S.S. Seattle* in 1917. They were docked at Port St. Nazaire in France, seen here, and were the first American troops in France. According to historian, Fred Baldwin, "The USA had joined the war, fighting alongside the Allies, and chose Saint-Nazaire as one of their most important entry harbors to France and Western European battlefields. Between 1917 and 1919, almost 198,000 troops and a daily average of 4,000 tons of material transited through Saint-Nazaire." These pictures show the first U.S. troops marching through St. Nazaire, local women working for the war effort, and a photograph captioned "U.S. aeroplane." Depicted are French troops (here dubbed "Frenchies") as well as French children. A few pages show German prisoners with captions like, "glad to talk to we Americans," "well … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mitchell, Margaret] Perrett, Louise; Sarah K. Smith
The Reilly and Britton Co, 1917. First Edition. Blank book-style yearbook (largely still blank) belonging to Elizabeth Floding with numerous inscriptions and well wishes from various students and faculty, including a four-line Gellett Burgess poem written to Floding by Margaret Mitchell: "I never saw a purple cow, I never hope to see one, I'll tell you one thing anyhow, I'd rather see than be one! Ha! Ha! Margaret Mitchell." Additional ephemera also laid in, including a piano recital program and various small photographs. "Gone With the Wind" writer Mitchell attended private girls' school Washington Seminary in Atlanta Georgia, where presumably Floding was a classmate.
