        Munition Drawings. From the Collection Presented to the British Museum by His Majesty's Government.

      Country Life, 1917. - Large folio [32 x 24 inches]. Consisting of title sheet, contents sheet and six tinted lithographs numbered I - VI in a stiff paper portfolio as issued. The 6 lithographs are: I. The Giant Slotters. II. Mounting a Great Gun. III. Moving Heavy Gun Tubes. IV. The Night Shift Working on a Great Gun. V. Night Work on the Breach of a Great Gun. VI. A Coring Machine at Work on a Big Gun Tube. A small tear to the edge of the front cover otherwise an excellent copy. Bone was the first Official War Artist, being appointed in May 1916. His major contribution was the two volume collection' The Western Front' and 'With the Grand Fleet'. Less well-known were these very large lithographs, probably published in relatively small numbers and obviously intended for framing. The quality of the reproduction is superior to the book versions of his drawings and they rarely turn up for sale. It is believed that only two series were issued, this one and the companion 'With the Grand Fleet', also offered for sale.

        PATIENT PERIODICAL in THE VASSARION, Volume Twenty-nine.

      1917 - MILLAY, Edna St. Vincent. "THE PATIENT PERIODICAL," in THE VASSARION, Volume Twenty-nine. Poughkeepsie, NY: Vassar College, 1917. Illustrated. Small quarto. Two parts bound as one: 204,[28]; 55,[1] pp. Black paper with a simulated leather texture, title printed in white on spine, an owl device which incorporates the year is stamped in silver gilt on upper board. Vassar-designed bookplate with student signature, a member of the class of 1918, on recto of frontispiece. Binding is sound though chipped at crown, superficially rubbed along joints, and worn through just at the tips of corners. Text and photos are clean. This is the Vassar College yearbook for the class of 1917. Printed on p. 59 are the lyrics to "The Patient Periodical," Millay's winning entry in the Class Song Contest of 1916 for which she wrote both the words and music. Millay's senior portrait appears on p. 80; and there is an informal picture of her on p. 27 of the second part in which she is identified as Vincent, her familiar name. Millay's name also appears as a member of the Tree Ceremonies Committee (p. 53), as a cast member of "The Locked Chest" (p. 122), and as President of the Spanish Club (p. 168). Millay, a scholarship student at Vassar, began her studies at the age of twenty-one. While there, she studied literature and languages, and wrote and appeared in several plays for college productions. She had trouble obeying the rules and regulations meant to protect young Vassar students and was very nearly barred from graduation but for the intervention of faculty and students. After garduation, and before the year had ended, Millay began her successful and very public career by publishing Renascence and Other Poems and moving to New York City. [a]

        Wallpaper Sample Folio

      Germany, 1917. German wallpaper book featuring Art Nouveau or Jugendstil era wallpapers, with base papers presented in sets with suggested borders and/or complementary papers. No company name given. Date stamped on FEP. The thick folio is comprised with well over 100 sets of paper, or full panels, with sets including up to a half dozen other papers cut in small dimensions. These small swatches are every bit as interesting as the large samples, and the combinations implied should also have interest for what they have to say about decorative taste of the era. The patterns contained herein offer an intriguing mix of those that would widely be regarded as dated today and others that are very much akin to papers currently available. It is impossible to generalize about these papers which include stripes, florals, , geometrics, and combinations of these. Perhaps one point that can be distilled is that a certain formality tends to pervade the papers notwithstanding the languidity thought to characterize Art Nouveau, but this merely demonstrates that tastes did not move in lockstep with heralded fashionable movements when it came to domestic decoration. Over 13 inches tall and 9 inches across, the folio is in very good state of preservation. There are two papers which are torn with only small portions remaining by the spine, and it is possible other papers have vanished, although it should be apparent the total amount of loss can not much exceed that which has occurred since the binder is quite full. Soome light shelf wear and rubbing to the boards which are a patterned paper paste-down.

        [Album with 12 Chinese watercolours].[China, 19th century]. Oblong album (23.5 x 33.5 cm) with 12 delicate gouache and watercolour paintings on so-called rice paper (each ca. 19 x 28 cm), mounted on the album's leaves, each painting framed with strips of blue silk ribbon backed with paper attached at the corners. Embroidered binding (1917 or earlier), green braided ties.

      An album with 12 vibrantly coloured "pith paintings" showing Chinese junks and other boats, each mounted on a verso (so that the book opens from what in a western book would be the back). Chinese texts appear on the flag of the first boat and stern of the fifth. Pith paintings, often depicting scenes from daily life, flowers, birds or butterflies, were most popular from the 1830s to the end of the century. Parts of the image are painted with a thick layer of gouache (some parts matte and some parts glossy) that sits on the surface of the velvety paper while the watercolour soaks in, giving a distinctive texture and three-dimensional quality. Typically small and fragile, these subtle watercolours were created for the export market to meet the increasing demand for inexpensive souvenirs. There was a flourishing trade in the miniatures, until they were superseded by the less expensive picture postcard. They are painted on what is usually called "rice paper", now sometimes "pith paper", which is neither paper nor made from rice. It is a thin layer of pith cut with a knife from the plant Tetrapanax papyriferum, related to ginseng.With small tears or holes in a few paintings, mostly in the corners and affecting only the open water or sky of the background, some indentations in the paper across the sky, occasionally touching the rigging of a boat, minor spotting, first album leaves and paste-down with marginal waterstains, overall in good condition. A lovely album of brightly coloured Chinese pith paintings of boats.

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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Goose and Teal

      1917 - Frank Weston Benson (1862-1951) was an American Impressionist artist, and a member of the Ten American Painters. He began his Studies at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1879, under Otto Grundmann, and later studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. Upon return to America, he would become an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1888 Benson gained favorable attention in his first showing with the Society of American Artist in New York, with a piece that suggested the influence of academic Realism rather than Impressionism. By the early 1890s he began using his family as subjects; Benson later recalled having realized at the time that ¿design¿ was the most important component of painting. Consequently, works of the period provided evidence of a greater interest in patterns, silhouette, and abstract design. Late in his career, Frank Benson returned his boyhood interest in ornithological illustration. Following the 1913 Amory Show, Benson quietly moved to revolutionize the field of American sporting art. His rendering of wildlife, hunting, fishing, and camping infused the field with heightened artistic sensitivity, and reinvigorated a tradition- burdened field. Historical accounts indicate that Benson¿s teenage bird studies were extremely realistic. We can infer that they were similar to works by Alexander Pope (American, 1849-1924) and Louis Agassiz Fuertes (American, 1874-1927). Those painters concentrated on painting objects with precision. Each blue jay painted by Fuertes had exactly the same color tones and patterns. This is realism in the sense that twelve jays in a cage look precisely the same. In contrast, Benson¿s artistic training brought him to realize that a viewer¿s experience of a jay¿s appearance varies with the tint of light cast by the sky, whether the jay is front lit or back lit, and the background. Furthermore, Benson realized that we did not perceive the precise feather pattern of a bird at a distance of 20 feet. Benson had learned that our eyes perceive light, not objects, and he introduced that realization into the sporting art field. Other artists such as Roland Clark, A. L. Ripley, and Richard Bishop quickly followed his lead. In 1915 he first exhibited etchings of wild fowl, to popular acclaim. After 1920 Benson turned increasingly to the depiction of landscapes featuring wild life, an outgrowth of his interest in hunting and fishing, from then on producing a steady and profitable output of etchings and watercolors in this vein. At the request of fellow artist and conservationist Jay Norwood ¿Ding¿ Darling, Benson designed the second Federal Duck Stamp on 1935. Etching, 9 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches
