        OUR HAWAII

      New York, 1917. Original cloth, rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Titlepage defective. Good. Tipped in are eighteen original photographs of Charmian. A presentation copy inscribed by Charmian: "In sweet recollection of wonderful friendship between Vladimir and Charodeyka - you and me." This book describes the life of Jack London and his wife, Charmian, in Hawaii from 1907 to 1915. A fine association copy, enhanced by a number of original photographs of Charmian, including a portrait inscribed: "To Sam From Charmian." On page 278 there is a lovely reference to Russian-born American Vladimir and his wife, describing how he once virtually singled-handedly saved the entire crew of the barquentine Klikitat off Maui. He adopted the name of his ship, "Sam Johnson," as Americans could not cope with his Russian name, and his wife became "Pearl." Of the few presentation copies of this book to appear at auction, this copy has by far the most touching inscription, and no others are enhanced by so many original photographs. The photographs range from tomboyish outdoor snapshots of Charmian to more lady-like studio portraits.

        Souvenir de St. Pétersbourg. Privates Photographien-Album.

      wohl St. Petersburg, o. J. (ca 1917 - 20 mittelformatige lose eingesteckte und 8 sehr kleine Original-Photographien (diese eingeklebt) auf 10 Kartontafelblättern. Kl. 8° (Format ca. 15,5x18 cm), Jugendstil-Broschureinband mit Kordelbindung und handschriftlichem Titel. Historisch bemerkenswertes Photoalbum das wohl von einem französischen Militär, der auf einem Photo auch mit abgebildet ist während der Bürgerkriegszeit zusammengestellt wurde! Gruppenbild einer Frauenmalklasse - belebte Szenerie auf dem Bahnhof von Skuratovo bei Tula und Novomoskovsk (das Bahnhofschild ist in Kyrillisch abgebildet!) - Abbildung einer verunglückten Lokomotive - Badene nackte Kinder in einem Teich - 2 Portraits eines mit Orden ausgezeichneten russischen Beamten - Weißgardist mit Freundin - Gruppenphoto mit vier französischen Militärs - Gruppenphoto mit mehreren Weißgardisten beim Klettern - Ein Weißgardist in einer Felswand kletternd - Ansicht über einen See hinweg ev. auf eine Villa, auf dem See 2 Ruderer, auf Holzstämmen ein Mann - Portrait eines ev. Weißgardisten, mit Kosakenmütze (?), Patronengurt und Dolch, weitere Portrait- und Gruppenphoto sowie kleinformatige Portraitphotos. - Die Orts-Zuschreibung haben wir dem handschriftlichen Titel entnommen, das Bahnhofsphoto aus der Nähe von Tula deutet aber auch auf andere Orte in Rußland hin. - Nach der Oktoberrevolution 1917 wurde zwischen Deutschland und Sowjetrussland zunächst im Dezember 1917 ein Waffenstillstand und am 3. März 1918 der Friedensvertrag von Brest-Litowsk geschlossen. Damit war der Erste Weltkrieg an der Ostfront beendet und die Situation veränderte sich: Aus Verbündeten wurden Feinde. So landeten bereits drei Tage später britische Truppen auf russischem Territorium. Es folgten weitere Invasionen französischer, amerikanischer, japanischer und griechischer Truppen in verschiedenen Regionen des ehemaligen Russlands zur Unterstützung der Weißen Armee bei der Restauration und zur Wahrung bzw. Erweiterung von Einflusssphären. (Quelle: Wikipedia). - Unser Album scheint von einem französischen Mitglied der französischen Armee, die gegen die Bolschewiki auf seiten der Weißgardisten kämpfte, zu stammen. Sehr seltenes Photodokument! - Der Einband rissig und beschabt, die Photos meist ausgeblichen oder gedunkelt, die kleinformatigen Photos stark gedunkelt, teils mit leichten Klebspurresten an den Passepartouträndern. Formate der mittelformatigen Photos ca. 7,5x11 cm.

Original, illustrated Hardcover (half cloth with prison-cell-door illustration on front board. Unusually Excellent condition ! Only the spinelabel slightly rubbed. The binding and the frontcover especially excellent. Extremely Rare in this collectable condition ! Frongoch internment camp at Frongoch in Merionethshire, Wales was a makeshift place of imprisonment during the First World War. Until 1916 it housed German prisoners of war in an abandoned distillery and crude huts, but in the wake of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, Ireland, the German prisoners were moved and it was used as a place of internment for approximately 1,800 Irish prisoners, among them such notables as Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith. They were accorded the status of prisoners of war. Another of the prisoners was the future Hollywood actor Arthur Shields. It is a common misconception that Éamon de Valera was also imprisoned at Frongoch. During this time de Valera was held at Dartmoor, Maidstone and Lewes prisons. The camp became a fertile seeding ground for the spreading of the revolutionary gospel, with inspired organisers such as Michael Collins giving impromptu lessons in guerrilla tactics. Later the camp became known as ollscoil na réabhlóide, the "University of Revolution" or sometimes "Sinn Féin University". With the appointment of Lord Decies as Chief Press Censor for Ireland after the Rising in 1916, Decies warned the press to be careful about what they published. William O'Brien's Cork Free Press was one of the first papers he suppressed under the Defence of the Realm Act 1914 (DORA regulations) after its republican editor, Frank Gallagher, accused the British authorities of lying about the conditions and situation of republican prisoners in the internment camp. (Wikipedia) The camp was emptied in December 1916 when David Lloyd George replaced H. H. Asquith as Prime Minister. The local school Ysgol Bro Tryweryn now stands on the site of the former camp but a commemorative plaque stands nearby, with inscriptions in Irish, Welsh and English.

        LJUBLJANA: Laibach 1917.

      - Detailed water-colourr drawing shows the Kolodvorska ulica leading from the main train station to the old city center. The cathedral and the hill with the castle are visiable in the background. Names of the restaurants and shops are marked clearly, also are recognisable all the buildings. The drawing was made in 1917, during the World War I, one year before the dissolution of Austria-Hungary. A year later the region joined the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The part shown of the drawing was a new part of Ljubljana, when the city expanded itself beyond the city walls in the direction of the main train station after the devastating earthquake of 1917. The time after the earthquake until 1910 was also named the "rebirth of Ljubljana". New parks, squares and monuments were built, the city got canalisation, trams and telephones. 436 new buildings were built and about 100 buildings were rebuilt and enlarged. Code: 62793

        Role portrait photograph as Le Chevalier des Grieux in Massenet's opera Manon, full-length. Signed in full, inscribed, and dated Buenos Aires, [June] 1917

      Ca. 205 x 114 mm. Slightly worn and soiled; foxed; some silvering and staining; remnants of adhesive to verso. . Caruso gave three performances in Manon at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires commencing on June 26, 1917. "The winning quality of the sound, the tender mezza voce (particularly in the early years), and his phrasing, based on a rare mastery of legato and portamento, enabled Caruso to sing the French and Italian lyric repertory as well as lighter operas. In addition, his noble, incisive declamation, his broad, generous phrasing, and his vigor in dramatic outbursts made him a notable interpreter of Verdi as well as of French grand opéra. In this repertory his performances were characterized by the irresistible erotic appeal of his timbre allied to a temperament as warm and vehement as his voice. His numerous recordings, now faithfully remastered on CD, not only made him universally famous, they also did much to encourage the acceptance of recording as a medium for opera." Rodolfo Celletti and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.

        PANAMA CANAL RAISED-RELIEF MODEL: Aeronautical View of the Panama Canal.

      - A fascinating raised-relief model showcasing a bird’s eye view of the Panama Canal, made shortly before this marvel of engineering was opened to revolutionize global shipping. This wonderful raised-relief model of the Panama Canal depicts the channel, dams, reservoirs and locks, as well as the surrounding landscape in great detail. As noted "A careful study of the model will give all the most important facts and figures relating to the greatest achievement of modern time The Panama Canal." In spite of the title ‘aeronautical’, the scene is actually captured from an imaginary suborbital perspective, and certainly well beyond the limits of contemporary aviation. That being said, the captured perspective is quite precise and accurate, as stated "The Model had been made by information furnished by the Isthmian Canal Commission at Washington, D.C, and is therefore authentic." The map, designed by the New York cartographer C.P. Gray, depicts the canal after its final plan had been decided and it was nearing completion, but before it was operational. Working from the Atlantic (left) to the Pacific (right), the canal’s entrance in the Caribbean Sea can be found at Limon Bay and the port city of Colon. At the head of the bay, the Gatun Locks were to lift ships 85 feet (26 metres) up to Gatun Lake, a giant manmade reservoir newly created by the adjacent Gatun Dam. The main shipping channel, delineated by a white line, navigates the lake’s many islands (former hilltops) as it proceeds to the Culebra (or Gaillard) Cut, which is broken thought a broad hill 95 metres (312 feet) in height. Ships were then to descend though the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks before entering the Pacific Ocean near Panama City. The recently relocated Panama Canal Railway skirts the left side of the canal, while a rich and mountainous jungle landscape surrounds the channel on either side. The plan is precisely faithful to what was inevitably constructed, save for the four massive proposed fortifications (two each to be constructed at either end of the canal). Such designs came to be seen as too menacing and unnecessary, and the U.S. inevitably established a far more modest naval and army presence. Moreover, America’s entry into World War I in 1917 ruled out such enormous expenditures. Perhaps sensing the unrealistic nature of the fortifications, the model’s text cautions "The fortifications shown are only proposed." Besides the aforementioned commentary, the text panel of the model features a list of key historical dates for the region and the canal project’s history. It also details a host of fascinating statistics regarding this engineering marvel. The Panama Canal is certainly one of the greatest and most consequential feats of engineering in world history. Over the last century, by allowing ships travelling between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans to traverse the Panamanian Isthmus, it has saved immeasurable amounts of time, money (and lives), sparing vessels from the long and treacherous voyage rounding South America. The idea for a trans-isthmus canal was not new, as it had first been proposed by Emperor Charles V in 1534. However, it was not until the 19th Century that such a feat was considered to be practically possible. By that time, the word’s great powers were well aware that whomever built and controlled any such canal would be conferred with immense political power and commercial advantage. The French were the first out of the gate. Ferdinand de Lesseps, who had successfully completed the Suez Canal in 1869, ran a venture that proceeded to build a canal across the Panamanian Isthmus in 1881. This plan envisaged a sea level canal, like the Suez (ie. without locks), that involved cutting a channel straight through the low mountains and dense jungle. This project was plagued by mass corruption, technical problems and rampant disease amongst the workers. It failed spectacularly in 1894. The Americans moved in to aggressively to full the vacuum, buyin

        MESSAGE DU PRESIDENT WILSON LU AU CONGRES DES ÉTATS UNIS D'AMERIQUE LE 2 AVRIL 1917

      Paris: Impremerie des Journaux officiel, [1917].. Broadside, 37 x 25½ inches. Printed in two columns. Small areas of paper loss in upper and lower margins from hanging, else very good. French broadside printing of President Wilson's address to Congress asking for a declaration of war against Germany. ^After years of insisting on neutrality, the sinking of the Lusitania and the infamous Zimmermann Note scandal persuaded Wilson that the time for action was at hand. On April 2, 1917, before a special joint session of Congress, Wilson asked for a declaration of war against Germany, and America entered World War I. Wilson's speech, known as "The world must be made safe for democracy" speech, would be a defining moment of his presidency, and America entering the war would, in turn, be the beginning of the end of the World War I. ^In the speech, printed here in French on a large sheet and no doubt hung in the streets of Paris, Wilson began with a harsh condemnation of German unrestricted submarine warfare and a review of the reasons neutrality was no longer possible. He then continued: ^"With a profound sense of the solemn and even tragical character of the step I am taking and of the grave responsibilities which it involves, but in unhesitating obedience to what I deem my constitutional duty, I advise that the Congress declare the recent course of the Imperial German government to be in fact nothing less than war against the government and people of the United States; that it formally accept the status of belligerent which has thus been thrust upon it; and that it take immediate steps, not only to put the country in a more thorough state of defense but also to exert all its power and employ all its resources to bring the government of the German Empire to terms and end the war.... ^"The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be satisfied when those rights have been made as secure as the faith and the freedom of nations can make them.... ^"It is a distressing and oppressive duty, gentlemen of the Congress, which I have performed in thus addressing you. There are, it may be, many months of fiery trial and sacrifice ahead of us. It is a fearful thing to lead this great peaceful people into war, into the most terrible and disastrous of all wars, civilization itself seeming to be in the balance. But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried nearest our hearts for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments, for the rights and liberties of small nations, for a universal dominion of right by such a concert of free peoples as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world itself at last free. To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is privileged to spend her blood and her might for the principles that gave her birth and happiness and the peace which she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other." ^A remarkable relic of the war to end all wars.
