Justice B. Detwiler
New York City: Gordon-Detwiler Institute of New York Inc, 1917. Very good to near fine. This 187 page English/French language book, Soldiers French Guide, is extremely rare. Also, it appears to be a slightly abbreviated version of the "Soldier's French Course" book by the same author and publisher. The 203 page course book is readily available elsewhere. Very good to fine condition with a few minor blemishes on the covers. No slipcover available. The first page appears to have the number 15 on it, written in pencil. It has a slight tear as well. All other pages are unmarked but with yellowing and a few moisture (?) stains. From the author: NOTE: - Every Soldier should master the thirty lesson French Course contained in this book and when he does so he will have a thorough foundation knowledge of the French language. I conscientiously believe that there is not another French Guide on the market at any price which so thoroughly meets the requirments of United States Soldiers going to France as this volume.

New York: Macmillan, 1917. Fine in dust jacket in original very good box. First edition. Our Hawaii Charmian London (Mrs. Jack London) New York: Macmillan, 1917 Hardcover in publishers 0riginal blue cloth with cover design and lettering in gilt; xiv, 345 pages with four pages ads at rear; frontispiece and 15 full-page plates from photographs, colored map. First printing of the first edition of Charmian's second book (after "Log of the Snark"). This book is in very fine condition in the original dust jacket that came with this book when published in 1917 in the original publisher's box. The dust jacket is in very good condition with some closed tears, the largest being at the upper left corner of the rear panel of the dust jacket, about one inch. Some corner wear also, but the jacket is far above what is encountered when a dust jacket does show up on this book. The box is very good with some wear and seam splits and corner and edge wear from being 100 years old. That this box survived at all intact is a wonder. One long side of the box has an edge crack as shown. The box is sturdy but fragile. This book is extremely uncommon to encounter in the publisher's box. Few have survived. Those that have survived will be in poor boxes. A couple of factors would be responsible for such scarcity: World War where the market for fiction books was damaged, the fragile nature of the box, as most people threw away dust jackets as Jack London once wrote to his public (let the true beauty of book show) and a low printing of the book. Two original photos of Jack and Charmian in very good condi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gandhi, Mohandas Karamchand.
(Bombay, printed by G. N. Kulkarni, at the Karnatak Printing Press 434, Thakurdwar [.], published by S. G. Banker, M.A., 34, Choupatty Rd.), 1917. 8vo. (2), 4 pp. Original printed wrappers, lacking rear wrapper cover. The only known copy of Gandhi's first printed discussion of his strategy of passive resistance. A recently-unearthed survival of a highly important document, wholly unknown to researchers of Gandhi's life and works. The present pamphlet - among the earliest concerning Gandhi to have been printed in India following his arrival there in 1915 - was plainly seditious enough to warrant its suppression by the British authorities, probably explaining its low survival rate. We have been unable to trace any mention of it in the authoritative Gandhi bibliography by Pandiri, nor is it held in the National Library of India or any other institutional library worldwide. Even the printing press which produced it seems to have been decommissioned immediately: we can find no trace of any other publication printed by G. N. Kulkarni (only later publications by his son M. N. Kulkarni). - The preface openly criticizes the "repressive policy" of the British Raj and notes the rising tide of "Passive Resistance": "We, therefore, publish a translation of a Gujarati letter written to a friend by Mr. Gandhi in the hope that the views of such a tried hand at Passive Resistance as Mr. Gandhi undoubtedly is, might help us all in coming to the right decision and taking the proper course of action." Casting further light on the circumstances of its printing, the preface is signed by Umar Sob … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rackham, Arthur
South Hampstead [London]: 1917. Rackham, Arthur. Original sketch printed to recto only, dimensions: about 7" by 4.5" A wonderful original drawing by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939), done in simple, flowing lines, depicting a Civil War-era soldier carrying a flag which seems to be flowing in the breeze; beneath which Mr. Rackham wrote two lines from the poem "John Brown's Body", thus: "John Brown's body lies a-mouldering / in the grave / BUT HIS SOUL GOES MARCHING ON". Beneath is written "with kindest regards [space] Arthur Rackham". The sketch is on letterhead with the printed address of 16, Chalcot Gardens, South Hampstead N.W., with the numeral "3" written next to the address, and the date writted above of "3.4.17" - since Mr. Rackham presumably used the British convention for dating, we assume this means "April 3, 1917". Arthur Rackham married in July of 1903, and although they began their life together at another address (3, Primrose Hill Studios), they "shortly" moved to the "attractive, unusual, high-gabled house" at 16, Chalcot Gardens, which had two studios - one for Mrs. Rackham, an artist in her own right, and another for Arthur Rackham. In 1917 Arthur Rackham was 50 years old and was known as "the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period" (n.b., from "Arthur Rackham, His Life and Work", by Derek Hudson), having had many of his best-known illustrations already published, including those in "Peter Pan" and "Alice in Wonderland"; in 1917 his illustrated version of "The Romance of King Arthur" would be published.

[Midwest U.S.]: [ca. 1913-1917]. Oblong small 4to. Commercial string-tied album in black textured wraps. 58 cyanotype (11" by 8.25") and 55 gelatin-silver prints (most 9.5" by 7.25", some 6" by 3.5" or smaller); four of the latter apparently perished. Adhesive-mounted recto and verso on black paper sheets. Very good. Some glue-bleaching to cyanotypes' edges. Many pages cleanly detatched from from perforated tabs, but photos remain clean. Very good. Album of storage tanks, agitators, and other liquid-related metal machinery photos compiled by the manufacturer, which - judging by the locations of most of its clients - was located somewhere in the Midwestern United States. Majority of the photos show a single piece of equipment, captioned with its order number, destination (e.g. "National Ice Cream Co., San Francisco"), the product name (e.g. "Deep Upright Closed Tank"), shipment date, dimensions, and other relevant notes; several images show the product installed in its destination factory, but most appear to have been taken before shipment. Many clients were ice-cream and other dairy processing plants, and the majority were American; but a few were international, including the Nestle plant in Switzerland and a Cuban brewery. Among the American non-dairy plants were the Coors brewery in Colorado, a Perth Amboy chemical plant, and a California paint manufacturer. Two images depict a dozen salesmen posing at the tank factory, and others show factory workers in motion. Likely assembled as a salesman's book (or perhaps company archive), with its many cyanotypes a striking vernacu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Numbering in pencil to lower right corners. The preface, "Die vereinfachte Studier- und Dirigier-Partitur" (The simplified score for study and conducting), explains the experimental layout of the score, which is basically a short score. First leaf slightly worn, with very small triangular tear and paper clip mark to blank upper margin, but in very good condition overall.

JOYCE, James.
London: Egoist Press, 1917. Octavo (180 x 123 mm). Contemporary green quarter calf, titles to spine in gilt, raised bands to spine, green and gilt marbled paper sides, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, pale green book marker, marbled endpapers. Spine faded, slight rubbing to extremities, faint toning to margins, short closed tear to fore edge of first blank; a very good copy indeed. First edition to be printed in the UK, the so-called second edition, preceded by the English issue of the US edition. Joyce's first novel was originally published in book form by Huebsch in New York in 1916. Due at least in part to the hostile reaction to its original serialization in The Egoist (from February 1914 to September 1915) no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. Harriet Shaw Weaver, the proprietor of the Egoist Press, therefore purchased and bound "not more than 750" sets of the US sheets, and issued them under the Egoist imprint. She then issued the present edition using sheets printed in the UK. Slocum & Cahoon A13. [Attributes: First Edition]

Eliot, T. S.
London: The Egoist Ltd., 1917. First Edition. 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 soiling 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. A nice copy of this fragile production with a great association between two very important figures in the Modernist movement. Very Good.
