        ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING WITH WATERCOLOR, SIGNED]

      [Np 1917 - Approximately 22 x 11 cm, in contemporary mat (the latter 35.5 x 25 cm). Mat edgeworn and somewhat dust darkened, with a few minor spots, but generally very good. A charming period drawing, inscribed as a gift to his model, Hildegarde Hirsch on the mat: "To Hildegarde on her sixteenth birthday. Rockwell." There is also a small 'H' in the lower right foreground of the image in his hand. Hirsch was a performer with the Ziegfeld Follies, and was both Kent's model and his lover. "The reference to 'sixteenth' birthday is facetious, as there is evidence that she was in her 20s when they met and may have been married and separated prior to the relationship with RK" - Stanley, REDISCOVERING ROCKWELL KENT. The drawing was published, without color, in the November 1917 issue of VANITY FAIR. GROLIER (STANLEY) 9.

        Vyatskaya glinyanaya igrushka v risunkakh: raskraska risunkov ruchnaya, yachnymi kraskami, tochno skopirovannymi s podlinnikov (Clay Toys from the Region of Viatka. Drawings hand-coloured by the Author, colour in egg, exact reproduction of the originals)

      Alexei Ivanovitch Denchine, Moscow 1917 - Small quarto. Title-page with limitation on verso, 21pp. of Russian text lithographed in sepia from the author's calligraphy. Cover illustration and fifty tipped-in plates of terra cotta toys, hand-colored by Denchine and heightened with gold. The plates are numbered 1-51. First edition of the first monograph on one of the most famous symbols of Russian folk art. Despite a stated limitation of 300 copies, it is likely that fewer were actually produced considering the amount of work required for each copy. The graphic artist, painter, illustrator and author Alexei Ivanovitch Denchine (or Den'shin) (1893-1948) exhibited paintings from the age of seventeen; he participated, along with Kandinsky, Rodchenko and others, in the great travelling exhibition of 1921. A great rarity of Russian book art. Original green wrappers, first side illustrated in lithography with pasted illustration hand-coloured by the artist, stab-sewn with a thick multi-colored cord. Some minor soiling and wear to wrappers, else an extraordinary copy, which retains its original board slipcase, with hand-decorations. (Lévèque & Plantureux, p. 42).

        OTTOMAN EMPIRE WALL MAP / WORLD WAR I WITH MSS. ADDITIONS:] NOUVELLE CARTE GÉNÉRALE DES PROVINCES ASIATIQUES DE L'EMPIRE OTTOMAN (SANS L'ARABIE) DRESSÉE PAR HENRI KIEPERT, BERLIN 1883. CHEMINS DE FER D’APRÈS L’ÉTAT DE 1917.

      Berlin: Dietrich Reimer (Ernst Vohsen), . 1917 - Chromolithograph, dissected into 24 sections and mounted upon original linen, contemporary manuscript additions in red and blue crayon, original sellers label of Simon Schropp & Co. Berlin affixed to verso (Very Good, some minor toning; clean tear to linen along one of the panel seams, since repaired), 93 x 156 cm (36.5 x 61.5 inches). A unique example of the very rare 1917 edition of a colossal map of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey, the Levant and Iraq, originally composed by the eminent German cartographer Heinrich Kiepert, but updated to become the finest general map of the region available during World War I, importantly with extensive contemporary manuscript additions highlighting key garrison towns, or possible military targets, in the ongoing war, likely added by a Central Powers officer. This is a unique example of the finest general map of the Near East and most of the Middle East available during World War I, being the ultimate edition of Heinrich Kiepert’s gargantuan masterpiece. The work depicts the heart of the Ottoman Empire, including Turkey, the Levant (modern Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan) and Iraq; plus, adjacent regions, including parts of Persia (Iran), Egypt and the Caucuses. Considered to be by far and away the era’s most detailed and accurate geographical overview of the region, the first edition was compiled in 1883 by the foremost authority on the cartography of the Ottoman Empire, the German geographer Heinrich Kiepert, and is here significantly updated to 1917, taking into account the partial construction of the famous Bagdadbahn (Istanbul to Baghdad Railway) and the Hejaz Railway, which connected Damascus to Medina (here partially shown). This edition of the Kiepert map is especially interesting and important, as it was made specifically to be used as a strategic aid by Central Powers commanders during World War I. The war in the Near and Middle East was heavily determined by geographic variables, and perhaps no other map better showcases these factors, providing a panoptic overview all in one place. The present example features extensive contemporary markings in red and blue crayon highlighting key garrison towns and potential military targets, likely added by a German or Turkish officer. We are not aware of another example of the Kiepert map with wartime manuscript markings, making this a rare example of the best regional map of World War I, bearing direct evidence of wartime use.

        Taccuino originale. The History of the Belle and le Bestie (Beauties + Beasts)

      , , . Taccuino originale a china con disegni a matita,  intitolato "The History of the Belle and le Bestie (Beauties + Beasts)". Il primo disegno è datato "31 luglio 1917" mentre l'ultimo reca la data "Xmas 1918". Firmato all'ultima pagina di testo "Jess". Il taccuino è composto di 48 disegni a matita datati e altrettante pagine scritte in inglese a china con calligrafia fitta e minuta. "Si tratta di una descrizione della vita di Jessie e di Cesarina, le Belle, a Cereseto e a Torino dal 31 luglio 1917 al dicembre 1918. I personaggi sono solo persone della famiglia Gualino: oltre al "bel Riccardo", ci sono i genitori e il fratello di Cesarina Ermanno con la divisa (sono anni di guerra), la sorella Edmea, il Maestro Egidio Visca, altre amiche e la bella ospite, Berta Angeli. Soltanto alla fine dell'album, nel dicembre 1918, compaiono due uomini con gli occhiali, definiti da Jessie "artisti" ricevuti con rispetto da Riccardo e Cesarina. Gli altri protagonisti sono "le Bestie": Toy (il bianco cane maltese di Riccardo), gli alani, i pavoni, i daini, le papere, i gatti, i maiali,  e un piccolo topo, che rallegrano la vita campagnola delle Belle di casa  e che danno spunto al racconto. Jessie illustra un viaggio per l'America di Cesarina con partenza da Genova, un doppio a tennis con il parroco, l'ascolto della musica attorno a un tavolo, le prove dalla sarta, l'acquisto delle scarpe, dei cappellini, e una passeggiata delle due Belle in via Roma e in attesa del tram. Due pagine le dedica a sè stessa con cinque scherzose caricature e mentre beve il tè." (da "Jessie Boswell", a cura di Ivana Mulatero, Bolaffi editore, catalogo dell'esposizione tenutasi alla Sala Bolaffi di Torino nel 2009, dove sono pubblicati tutti i disegni del taccuino, pag. 241-251). Cm 12x21,5 . pp. 96. . . Da "Cesarina Gualino e i suoi amici" a cura di Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco e Beatrice Marconi: "Jessie Boswell arriva a Biella nel 1906, su invito di sua sorella Gertie che ha sposato Venanzio Sella, fondatore dell'omonima banca. Nel 1913 entra in casa Gualino, come dama di compagnia. Studia pittura con Felice Casorati e Mario Micheletti e nel 1923, all'età di 42 anni, espone per la prima volta a Torino alla Promotrice delle Belle Arti. Fa parte (per pochi anni) del Gruppo dei Sei. Dotata (a ricordo di tutti) di spiccato humor, di una buona cultura umanistica e artistica, svolge un ruolo più importante di quello inizialmente assegnatole. Anima le serate e suona per gli ospiti il pianoforte (si è diplomata alla Royal Academy of Music di Londra nel 1901), ritrae i padroni di casa, i loro figli, gli interni della casa, organizza i balli, le feste e le recite con i ricchi costumi che i Gualino hanno acquistato nei viaggi in Russia e in Romania. Il 16 aprile del 1928 lascia casa Gualino, e si dedica esclusivamente alla pittura, mantenedosi con lezioni di pianoforte. Con Cesarina è subito amicizia, il linguaggio musicale le unisce, Jessie impara a danzare e Cesarina a dipingere e ad amare gli inglesi.

        A very large photograph, captioned on the matt: 'Group of the Australian Electrical Mechanical Mining and Boring Company. Taken in Flanders in June 1917'

      Visible image size 400 x 550 mm, recently replaced in its original deeply-recessed glazed wooden frame with gilt fillet, complete with the original captioned matt (external dimensions 660 x 800 mm). The sepia-toned original vintage gelatin silver photograph is in fine condition; the white ink caption is a little smudged, but still quite legible; the frame is a little rubbed at the extremities and chipped near one corner; overall, it is a very impressive piece. Given the date there is little doubt that this was taken in the Messines sector, where the engineers had their most famous success with the series of enormous mines detonated before the attack on 7 June 1917. The original caption also notes that 'this group is only 100 strong and yet has been awarded any number of gallantry medals including a DSO, 3 DCMs, 2 MCs and 7 MMs'. The DSO was awarded to the Commanding Officer, Major Richard Victor Morse, on 3 June 1917; he is seated in the centre of the front row. A copy of a letter from Morse to the Controller of Mines, Second Army, dated 12 June 1917, is in the Australian War Memorial collection. The final paragraph may help put this particular image in its true context: 'I also wish to draw your special attention to the very good work of the N.C.O.'s and men ... These men have for the past 18 months carried out their duties under very extreme conditions, and in keeping the supply of power for the front line work, constantly repairing cables under heavy shell fire, and have shown faithfulness to their duty by working weeks in the line without taking relief, and unduly long hours on duty, in the many instances of Engine room and line troubles'.

        New Victor Records Jass Band and other Dance Selections.

      Victor Records. 1917. Poster in tones of brown, black and orange 33 x 21 inches (84x53cm) archivally backed with a one inch wide section down the right edge reattached (a small area of the lower right margin missing) and two short tears at the lower edge minimised. Scene of couples dancing in a ballroom, with orchestra playing. Tunes listed are Dixieland Jass Band, Livery Stable Blues, Poor Butterfly and Allah's Holiday. Bottom right are the initials 'RW'. A facsimile letter from the Victor Talking Machine Company to Victor Dealers reads in part: "The Jass Band is its own best advertisement to people who have heard it but for those who have not, we have had the enclosed poster prepared. Given the best possible display you have at your disposal, this new poster, featuring the first Jass Band selection and one other excellent dance record, will develop a very considerable volume of business for all our Dealers. The Jass Band is a novelty. It is the newest and the noisiest thing in the cabarets. Coming just at the end of the winter season it will carry the dancers merrily along into the summer months and like all musical novelties, it means the beginning of another special 'run' of business." Little did the Victor company know just how long that 'run' would last... We have found only one holding at Tulane University in the Hogan Jazz Archive.

        APPLEY DAPPLY'S NURSERY RHYMES

      1917. London: Frederick Warne and Co., n.d. [1917]. Original green-grey boards lettered in red, with front cover pictorial onlay. First Edition (first or second printing, indistinguishable from each other, which came out in October and November 1917). The third printing did not come out until 1919-1920; it is distinguishable from the earlier two, because for the third printing "Ltd." was added to the publisher's name on the front cover and title page.~Most of these rhymes are Beatrix Potter's own, but also included is "You know the old woman who lived in a shoe?". She first did illustrations for that rhyme as early as 1893, and she and Warne planned a volume of illustrated verse soon after PETER RABBIT made such a hit in 1901-1902. However it kept getting set aside for other volumes, and then Norman Warne died in 1905, and the project was dropped for a dozen years -- when in 1917 Fruing Warne asked her for another story and she did not have one. (Five years later there would be another volume of rhymes, CECILY PARSLEY'S NURSERY RHYMES.)~This copy has the binding's lettering in red (others have it in dark green -- no precedence). Condition is near-fine (just a hint of wear at some corners). Covering the front paste-down illustration is the large bookplate of Ula Pegatha Dashwood Howard (who was baptized in Hampton Hill in August 1909); the front paste-down illustration is different in the third printing, but we know that this unseen illustration is in the earlier state because of the lack of "Ltd." elsewhere. Linder pp 225-229 & p. 430; Quinby 23.

        A Glance at the Life of Ira Aldridge

      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-American printer in period directories. Exceptionally uncommon combination: a biography of a black actor by a black author and published by a black printer. OCLC lists four copies (Emory, Northwestern, University of Illinois, and the Library of Congress). [Attributes: First Edition]
