        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1917 - 1917 Wisden Original Hardback fine condition

      1917. I was very tempted to give this 1917 original hardback 10 out of 10. A can t really find any fault with it. The front and rear boards and the spine are in absolutely immaculate condition. The gilt to the front board and the spine is extremely bright and completely unrestored. Front and rear yellow pages are in almost new condition. The hinges are extremelystrong and the book has an unopened feel to it. The contents are in as new condition. It would be very difficult to find a better copy - perhaps it should really be a 10! We hope to list over the next few weeks a number of fine pre-war publisher s hardbacks including issues for the 1890 s and the First World War and several years from the 1860 s and 1870 s all in fine condition. Please keep a look out for them.

        Lion Cachet - Jaarbeurs Utrecht.

      DE EERSTE JAARBEURS IN NEDERLANDReclame affiche voor de eerste Nederlandse Jaarbeurs te Utrecht in 1917. Kleurenlithografie ontworpen door Carel Adolph Lion Cachet (1864 ?? 1945). Afm. 102 x 69 cm. Gedurende de Eerste Wereldoorlog verloor Nederland zijn internationale handelscontacten, zodat het na enige tijd op zichzelf was aangewezen. Er kwamen tal van industrieën met produkten die voorheen geïmporteerd werden, wat een opbloei van de binnenlandse handel tot gevolg had. Hierdoor ontstond behoefte aan een centraal punt, waar binnenlandse handelscontacten gelegd konden worden. In 1917 wordt door de Vereeniging Nederlandsch Fabrikaat de eerste Jaarbeurs in Nederland georganiseerd. De keuze viel op Utrecht als vestigingsplaats vanwege de centrale ligging. De beurs werd gehouden in barakken op het Janskerkhof en het Vredenburg en in de gebouwen van de fruithal en de graanbeurs op het Vredenburg.Hoewel verkoop en détail verboden was, werd het grote publiek in de gelegen-heid gesteld de laatste dagen van de beurs te bezoeken. De organisatoren vonden het bij het karakter van de jaarbeurs horen, dat zij gehouden werd in de straten en op de pleinen van de stad. Een commissie voor vermakelijkheden zorgde tijdens de beurs voor ontspanning en vermaak. Utrecht veranderde tijdelijk in een stad vol vertier: optochten trokken door de stad, etalagewedstrijden zorgden voor fraaie vitrines en 's avonds was er theater en muziek. De beurs trok in 1917 al 150.000 bezoekers.Lion Cachet, de ontwerper van het affiche, werd na zijn opleiding tot onderwijzer aan de Amsterdamse Kweekschool, tekenleraar aan diverse scholen in Amsterdam. Daarna ontwikkelde hij zich tot een all-round kunstenaar; hij batikte, was houtgraveur, ontwierp behangselpapier, tapijten, sieraardewerk, meubels, bankbiljetten, affiches, was boekbandontwerper, en maakte complete ontwerpen voor het inrichten van salons op Nederlandse passagiersschepen. Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Ja, ich wußte bis dahin nicht einmal, daß Sie überhaupt existiren, also gänzlichst unbeeinflusst, weder pro noch contra, ich weiß bis heute [.] nicht, wie Sie im realen Dasein aussehen, habe niemals ein Bild von Ihnen gesehen. Ich halte Sie für einen der allerwertvollsten, innerlichst männlichen, nüchtern-gediegensten, selbstverständlichsten, aus natürlichen, überschüssigen, geistig-unbewußten Kräften heraus funktionirenden Künstler, der mehr, viel mehr kann als er will; also das 'Genialische' im Manne [.] 'Egmont' ist Ihre Rolle; aber auch 'Wallenstein'. Ich spüre in Ihnen den ewig in der Erinnerung fortlebenden Eichen-starken 'Ludwig Gabillon'! Überlassen Sie doch die sogenannten 'Liebhaber' den 'Lieb-habern'!!!

        War Drawings.

      London: Published by Authority of the War Office by Country Life Limited and George Newnes Limited,, 1917–8. Edition de Luxe. Signed Proofs from the Collection presented to the British Museum by His Majesty's Government. Folio. 6 light card fascicules each containing a loose contents leaf and 10 signed proof lithographic prints. Housed in a black cloth solander box. Total 60 plates. Wrappers of parts split to spines, edges nicked and frayed. Some edges of plates browned or a little dusty, plate xvii with a repaired tear to the right margin, plate li with small chip to lower margin and small tear to left margin, lix and lx with creasing and small tears to left margin. First edition, first impression. The Edition de Luxe was limited to 50 sets with each of the 60 lithographic proofs signed by Muirhead Bone in pencil, and with his embossed monogram, approx. size 530mm x 395mm. In 1916 William Rothenstein, a friend of Bone and a fellow member of the Society of Twelve, proposed that an artist should be sent to the front to record the War, Bone was chosen for the task. He arrived in August, 1916 at the height of the Somme Offensive and toured the Southern battle-fields working rapidly in various media - pencil, pen, charcoal and chalk - sending back over 150 finished drawings by October. "He recorded mostly life behind the lines illustrating the settings for war rather than battle scenes – the work of the medical services, encampments, soldiers of duty, soldiers marching, landscapes and ruined towns...The detail and accuracy of Bone's drawings provided an authentic, eyewitness record of the immense logistic efforts of the Somme, one that proved immensely popular and resulted in more artists being commissioned." [IWM Somme web-site]. Bone has been described as one of the greatest British draughtsmen and the composition of these "masterly lithographs" [DNB] is a clear confirmation of that judgement. Very rarely encountered complete, the lithographs having often been sold off individually, no sets traced at auction in the last 20 years.

        CATHERINE HERSELF [Winifred Herself]

      [CAMBRIDGE, nd. Ca.1917). First Edition. Quarto. WINIFRED HERSELF is actually the working title for "Catherine Herself". Original carbon typescript, ribbon bound into three gatherings: 1-153, 158-337 and 340-527 pp. several endleaves to the second gathering detached, torn and frayed; gaps in collation noted above a consequence of detached leaves now absent; wanting at least one leaf at end; some other creasing and fraying but in all a very good and clean draft of James Hilton's precocious first novel, here still bearing its preliminary working title. According to Kunitz & Haycraft, Hilton wrote this novel when he was a 17 year old undergraduate at Christ's College, Cambridge and it was published in 1920 by T. Fisher Unwin, a year before he graduated. In all probability, apart form the character name change, this typescript represents a text which is at variance from the published form. In spite of the interruptions in collation, this is an important manuscript from the very earliest days of a career that included the later substantial successes. Housed in a gray cloth clamshell with blue morocco spine label gilt.

        Towards the Goal. With a Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt.

      London: John Murray. 1917. ROOSEVELT'S COPY, Inscribed by the author. First edition. 8vo. Publisher's pink cloth with paper labels, faded to spine, light edgewear and bumping to spine, very good indeed.Internally clean, occasional trifling spotting. Inscribed by Mrs Ward to President Roosevelt, who wrote the foreword. A passionately written plea to America to join the First World War before it is too late. A fine association. Mary Ward was asked by Theodore Roosevelt to write a series of articles to explain to Americans what was happening in Britain during the War. The United States originally pursued a policy of non-intervention, avoiding conflict while trying to broker a peace. Woodrow Wilson unsuccessfully tried to mediate a settlement and was under pressure from former President Roosevelt who denounced German acts as "piracy". A breakdown in official relations was announced in February 1917, and following a submarine attack on seven US merchant ships, America entered the Great War in April.

        Into the Dead Heart, The Cruise of the Avocet, Ooldea and In the Far North-East.

      Adelaide: W.K. Thomas, 1914-, 1917. Duodecimo, four books bound together in contemporary quarter roan with gilt lettering; with a total of 83 photo plates (some folding), with original printed wrappers bound in. An outstanding collection of Australian ornithology and central desert travel narratives by pioneering conservationist and Aboriginal advocate Samuel Albert White (1870-1954).White is remembered as an intrepid traveller of the central Australia and for his collaboration with Gregory Matthews on the definitive ornithology reference The Birds of Australia. Born in Adelaide, White served in South Africa and upon his return participated in several major overland expeditions, including a journey to Alice Springs by camel in 1913 and the Musgrave and Everard ranges in 1914. White later accompanied expeditions to Cooper Creek, the Nullarbor, and the Finke River; he later played a prominent role in the creation of South Australian national parks.As reflected in these books, White sought the companionship of the central desert Aborigines and advocated their welfare in the public arena. In particular, Into the Dead Heart contains significant ethnological description of the desert tribes, including anecdotal descriptions of the author's interactions with individual Aboriginal people. Another work within this bound collection titled On the Flooded Murray River contains a sub-chapter titled "Native Art and Rock Shelters. An old camping ground visited". Here White records an excursion to a Victorian rock art site, complete with a large folding plate comprising images of the cave, its art, and the author's companions Messers. Zeitz and Bellchambers.These four books are originally from the collection of surgeon and South Australian resident Dr. Edward Angas Johnson, and have been inscribed to him by Captain White. The front endpaper bears the bookplate of Adelaide city council alderman Charles R. F. Glover, an assiduous collector of Australiana and ethnological artefacts.Details of the four titles are as follows:Into the Dead Heart. An Ornithological Trip through Central Australia. 1914, 154 pp., 26 full-page photo plates.The Cruise of the Avocet. In Search of Skuas and other Things. [1916], 68pp, 15 full-page photo plates, all ornithological in nature.Ooldea, on the East-West Railway, On the Flooded Murray River.

        CATHERINE HERSELF [Winifred Herself]

      [CAMBRIDGE, nd. Ca.1917). First Edition. Quarto. WINIFRED HERSELF is actually the working title for "Catherine Herself". Original carbon typescript, ribbon bound into three gatherings: 1-153, 158-337 and 340-527 pp. several endleaves to the second gathering detached, torn and frayed; gaps in collation noted above a consequence of detached leaves now absent; wanting at least one leaf at end; some other creasing and fraying but in all a very good and clean draft of James Hilton's precocious first novel, here still bearing its preliminary working title. According to Kunitz & Haycraft, Hilton wrote this novel when he was a 17 year old undergraduate at Christ's College, Cambridge and it was published in 1920 by T. Fisher Unwin, a year before he graduated. In all probability, apart form the character name change, this typescript represents a text which is at variance from the published form. In spite of the interruptions in collation, this is an important manuscript from the very earliest days of a career that included the later substantial successes. Housed in a gray cloth clamshell with blue morocco spine label gilt.
