        Recollections of a California Pioneer

      The Neale Publishing Company, New York 1917 - Written after the author had passed 88 years of age, this important early work follows his decision as a young man to leave his home in the East to seek gold in California in 1850.

        The Innocents: A Story for Lovers

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1917. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (with the required "Published October, 1917" and the "F-R" code --- light rubs to the spine ends and board corners, front board's upper right corner lightly tapped, minor mark to the closed page block's upper edge, the front free endpaper is signed "Sinclair Lewis" and there dated, but we do not represent or warrant it to be the author's signature), without the scarce dust jacket; an expanded version of a tale that earlier had been serially published in the Woman's Home Companion magazine, and the last of Lewis' novels published by Harper & Brothers. After contracting with Harcourt, Brace for then-future works, Lewis produced the full novel in order to fulfill his contractual obligations to Harper. Under these circumstances, Lewis did not produce his best work and the book was not a success. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humor, new types of characters." Of him, H.L. Mencken wrote: "[If] there was ever a novelist among us with an authentic call to the trade ... it is this red-haired tornado from the Minnesota wilds." Copies of "The Innocents" in its first edition, first printing are rather uncommon to the market as befits an unsuccessful book, and copies in a condition as nice as is this copy are more uncommon still. A Near Fine to Fine copy. SCARCE.

Also included, a bust length engraving of Wilson.From 1914 through 1917, as Europe plunged into war, the United States remained neutral, profiting from the largest share of neutral trade. Tensions with Germany accelerated until on April 2, 1917 Wilson, who had tried to keep us out of war, went before Congress with a heavy heart and requested that they declare war. Though most of the nation approved of his decision, southern business interests led the opposition to our entrance into the war. In this letter on "The White House" embossed stationery to Richard H. Edmonds, Editor of the "Manufacturers Record", a periodical devoted to the industrial and commercial interests of the South, Wilson responds tactfully to concerns about the war.

        Entwurf für ein Glasgemälde mit Wappen der Familie von Mülinen (auf Karton). Darstellung des Ritters Caspar von Mülinen mit dem Tod (nach dem Totentanz von Niklaus Manuel Deutsch).

      1917 1917 - 46 x 32 cm, Eine kleine Stelle Farbe abgelöst, ansonsten sehr dekoratives Totentanzgemälde. Auf der Rückseite handschriftliche Widmung des Malers an «Elisabeth und Hans von Mülinen, zur freundlichen Erinnerung, Bern Mai 1918 E. v. R. Das Glasgemälde hängt im Berner Münster. Auf dem Totentanz-Fresko von Niklaus Manuel wurde das Wappen des Ritters Caspar v. Mülinen (1481-1538) über dem Herzog (Caspar war vermutlich das Modell) positionniert, ebenso das Wappen des St. Katharinenordens und des Ordens vom Heiligen Grab. Sohn des Hans Friedrich und der Barbara von Scharnachtal, Erbin der Herrschaft Brandis. ? 1500 Verena von Diesbach, Tochter des Ludwig von Diesbach. Ab 1500 Grossrat und 1500-06 Schultheiss von Burgdorf, 1509 Landvogt von Grandson, 1510-15 Landvogt von Orbe-Echallens, ab 1517 Kleinrat (1527 entsetzt). M. wurde als begabter Unterhändler mit Gesandtschaften nach Savoyen, Ferrara (Emilia-Romagna) und Montferrat (Piemont) betraut. 1506 unternahm er eine Jerusalemfahrt, wurde dort zum Ritter geschlagen und trat 1516, obschon der Rat von Bern es ihm verboten hatte, in den Dienst von Hzg. Ulrich von Württemberg ein. M. vertrat bis zur Niederlage bei Pavia 1525 die franz. Interessen. Obwohl er ein Gegner der Reformation war, nahm er 1526 als Berner Vertreter am Glaubensgespräch in Baden teil. 1527 wurde er wegen seiner unnachgiebigen Haltung in Glaubensfragen aus dem Rat verstossen. Die Familie von Mülinen sind ein Aargauer Rittergeschlecht aus Mülligen AG, später habsburgische Ministerialen in der Schweiz. Seit dem 15. Jahrhundert zählen die Mülinen zum bernischen Patriziat. Einige Familienmitglieder führten den hochadeligen Titel eines Reichsgrafen von Mülinen. Das Geschlecht ist 2008 im Mannsstamm ausgestorben.Der früheste bekannte Namensträger ist Peter von Mülinen (? 1287), Schultheiss von Brugg. Sein Sohn Berchtold (? 1344) erwarb 1301 oder 1311 die Herrschaften Kasteln und Ruchenstein. Henmann (? 1421) wurde 1407 Burger von Bern und ab 1414 Herr zu Schinznach. Hans Friedrich (? 1491) erwarb durch seine Heirat mit Barbara von Scharnachthal die Herrschaft Brandis und begründete damit den Berner Zweig. Unter den Großen der Familie sind zu nennen neben Caspar von Mülinen, der Historiker Nikolaus Graf von Mülinen (1760-1833), der auch als Befreier Nidwaldens bekannt ist und 1811 die Schweizer Geschichtsforschende Gesellschaft mitbegründete; weiters Nikolaus' Vetter, der Diplomat Bernhard Graf von Mülinen (1788-1851), Teilnehmer am Wiener Kongreß, aber auch Nikolaus' Urenkelin Helene von Mülinen (1850-1924), die als bedeutende Frauenrechtlerin den ersten Berner Frauenverein gründete. 2500 gr.

        No. 27 | Der letzte Streitpunkt"]. Originalzeichnung, signiert "KAW".

      O. O., [wohl 1917]. - Tusche, Aquarell und Deckweiß. 220:218 mm (Bildausschnitt) auf 266:250 mm. Sauber ausgeführte Karikatur, die Lenin, einen Bauern, einen Soldaten und einen Proletarier zeigt, die den in einer Ecke hockenden Zar Nikolaus II. angreifen. Ihres Sujets wegen dürfte die vorliegende Zeichnung zur Zeit der Februarrevolution entstanden sein. Wilke dürfte die Zeichnung für die humoristische Zeitschrift "Die Muskete" geschaffen haben, für die er 1905-1918 tätig war. Sollte sie dort erschienen sein, so unter einem anderen Titel als dem, der auf vorliegendem Blatt auf der Verso-Seite von anderer (?) Hand notiert wurde, da die Abbildungsverzeichnisse der Jahre 1916-1918 keine von ihm unter diesem Titel veröffentlichte Zeichnung anführen.

Este hecho, junto con el prólogo titulado «Advertencia a los hombres que lean este libro para niños», dio lugar a que la obra fuese erróneamente encasillada en el género de la literatura infantil. Cuando en 1917 se publicó la edición completa, compuesta por 138 capítulos (Editorial Calleja, Madrid), quedaba claro que Platero era un texto adulto, aunque por su sencillez y transparencia se adecuara perfectamente a la imaginación y al gusto de los niños" - Contiene 323 páginas incluyendo índice - Rústico original - Hoja de respeto posee leves manchas de pegamento - Timbre de dueño anterior - Muy buen estado

      1917. 4to. Original vellum-backed portfolio. Gilt frontcover. Pictorial etched title-page, signed in pencil by the artist + etched contemt-leaf (Sexnam Listv.) and 6 original etchings, all numbered 9/50 (= no. 9 of 50 copies) and all signed by the artist in pencil. 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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;ve located a 1926 history of the movement by the same author, also published in Norfolk. .

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]
