A few brownspots to frontcover. Etchings clean and fine.. Max Svabinský (1873-1962) was a Czech painter, draughtsman, graphic artist, and professor in Academy of Graphic Arts in Prague. Svabinský is considered to be one of the more notable artists in the history of Czech painting and produced significant work during the first half of the 20th century. He was relatively unusual among modernist artists in that his work was accepted by the communist regime; this was due at least in part to his having formed his artistic personality prior to 1900, prior to the advent of cubism

        Ritual of the Grand Temple Daughters of Elks of the Improved, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the World. Organized September 9, 1913 Hampton, Va

      Norfolk, Va.: Press of the Guide Publishing Co., Inc.. 1917. First edition. 12mo. 23pp. Flexible cloth over card wrappers. "Key of Pass Word" tipped in. Modest creases and wear, about very good. Kelley founded the Grand Temple Daughters of Elks, an auxiliary of The Improved Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the World, a fraternal organization founded by a Pullman porter, Arthur James Riggs, and Benjamin Franklin Howard, who were both members of another fraternal organization who discovered that they shared a dream of forming an Elks organization for people of color. The Elks is the largest predominately black fraternal organization in the world. Whether Emma V. Kelley is related to the novelist Emma Dunham Kelley, who for years was thought to have written two of the earliest novels by an African-American woman (Megda 1891 and Four Girls at Cottage City 1895), is undetermined but an important question. Little is known about the latter Kelley, who has recently been a subject of much speculation as to her true race. Long thought to be a light-skinned African-American author, new (and from what we've read not entirely convincing) research has attempted to remove her from the pantheon of black writers. If the novelist and this namesake who founded a black women's fraternal organization were determined to be the same person, or even merely related, it would have enormous bearing on the debate. At any rate, rare in its own right: OCLC locates no copies; we've located a 1926 history of the movement by the same author, also published in Norfolk. .

      William Briggs, Toronto , 1917, - PRATT, E.J. Studies in Pauline Eschatology and Its Background. Accepted bythe University of Toronto as a Thesis for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Toronto : William Briggs, 1917. First Edition. Pp (2),3-203,(5),+ 3 fldgcharts. 8vo, green cloth. Laakso A22, Watters p.828, Rhodenizer p.391, Laugher p.456. Not in O'Dea. See David G. Pitt's E.J.Pratt: The Truant Years,1882-1927 (1984), pp.152-156, 241, from which the following is taken : "[.] a model of logical, orderly, scholarly discourse, carefully documented,fortified with voluminous and impressive charts and tables, and attractively and lucidly presented. [.]."But not surprisingly, the book had little appeal for the public at large and most of the 500 copies printed went unsold. For years afterwards Pratt was to be painfully reminded of his lost investment by frequently encountering copies, priced at a few cents each, amongthe promiscuous piles of unwanted tomes heaped on the remainder tables ofToronto book shops. It was not until January 1932 that Ryerson Press (sucessor to William Briggs) finally disposed of its remaining stocks in a mannergraphically suggested by the following correspondence between Pratt and Ryerson's editor, Lorne Pierce : \Dear Ned: The stock department are loath toconsign your Pauline Eschatology to the Eschatological incinerator withoutyour written say so. Will you please me good enough to give me your written authority. Sincerely yours, Lorne Dear Lorne, You are most welcome to consign these Eschatological monstrosities to the everlasting flames where they should have gone in the first place. I burned some fifty copies of them seven years ago and the house has remained hot ever since. I calculate thattwenty tons of coal was saved thereby. This is your authorization to give them a hasty and fiery dispatch. Ned. Fine. Rare. 1,500.00 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Vampire of the Continent

      The Jackson Press, New York 1917 - Second American edition. Translated by George Chatterton-Hill. Pictorial cloth. Light dampstain at the bottom of the text pages, thus about very good in very good pictorial dustwrapper with a corresponding stain, some small chips, and some very near professional reinforcement of the folds. Not about vampires at all, but a polemic attempting to demonstrate the insatiable greed of Great Britain for Empire. However, the striking illustration on both the front board and repeated on the dustwrapper, of a winging vampire sinking its claws into a nude woman, is among our favorites. We've never seen the book in jacket before. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"O du mein zermartertes Land | O, ihr meine totwunden Brüder und Schwestern | sagt, habt Ihr nicht einmal den Frieden gekannt, | war das nicht noch gestern? | Du Himmerl, jetzt ein Spiegel voll Blut | Ihre Meere, ohne die eilenden Schiffe | Ihr Häuser und Hütten ohne das Lachen | Ihr Kirchen mit dem verschütteten Gott | sagt mir, wann hat euch der Friede verlassen, | war das nicht erst gestern?

        Locked Out" in The Forge, Number Two.

      Philadelphia Colonial Press February, 1917 - Square octavo. 52, (2)pp. Contains the first appearance of "Locked Out," which had only previously seen print in The Bouquet, a magazine compiled by Frost's children in 1914. This poem was not included in the first edition of Mountain Interval but was added to its contents for the 1930 Collected Poems (see Crane, A14). Little is known about The Forge; based on the "Editorial Flourish" that introduces this number, its editor presents a rather unusual take on its mission: The Forge, he says, "has no purpose and is beyond price," adding later that it is also "not dependent on subscribers or contributors." Given this particular stance, however potentially ironic, it would suggest that this magazine did not enjoy a long life. In 1950, Frost sent a copy of this issue to librarian and editor Edward Connery Lathem at Dartmouth with the suggestion that it be added to the collection of Frost that Lathem was building there. Frost closes a letter that he enclosed with that copy by noting "It's a rarety (sic) I think. One of the editors sent it to me lately." This is a very fine copy, likely untouched by the mail or a subscriber's hands. (Crane A14). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
