        Yoshiwara keisei shin-bijin awase jihitsu kagami = Yoshiwara Courtesans: A New Mirror Comparing the Calligraphy of Beauties

      Tokyo: Custom Emaki Image Publishing Society; Jichuan Hong Wen, 1917. Original. Hardcover Accordion Fold. Fair. The color scroll image, while separated cleanly between the 8th/9th panels, is in Good/VG- condition with excellent color, and unmarked pages. Panels 9/10 (back-to-back) have a small tear/chip at upper outer corner, not affecting the image at all. Light age toning to page edges. Front cover is detaching, and paper covering the board is soiled and worn. Back cover is detached, and the paper detached from the board but present and chipped/soiled/torn. Ex-lib. sticker on lower front cover; bookplate inside back cover; presentation note (not from author/artist) in pencil on publication page.. Green paper/boards. Front cover has illustration and Japanese calligraphy. Accordion fold. Four pp. opening text (calligraphy), followed by 15 panels containing one continuous image, beautifully colored, of Japanese "beauties." 3 pp. text at end, followed by publication information. In spite of its condition, a beautiful continuous scroll of Japanese courtesans from Yoshiwara, the oldest/largest "red light" district in Tokyo. Prostitutes, courtesans, and Geishas all lived in the district, although with strict divisions among them. The women are portrayed in beautiful, colorful kimonos playing instruments, writing, serving tea, reading scrolls, doing art work, and more. Each panel contains faint calligraphic script in grey print, with red stamps/marks. The entire panel would look stunning when framed, thus showing its beauty in entirety. The artist is Kitao Masanobu (pseudonym for Santo Kyoden), a famous writer and artist of the Edo period. A scarce find.

        Bau- und Kunstdenkmäler Thüringens. 7 Abteilungen (41 Lieferungen) in 14 Bänden. Vollständige Reihe des gesuchten thüringischen Inventars.

      Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1888-1917. - Quart. Zeitgenössisches, goldgeprägtes Halbleder mit marmorierten Bezügen, Vorsätzen und Schnitt. Vollständiges Exemplar mit allen Kunstdruckbeilagen (siehe jedoch den Hinweis zur Kollation im untenstehenden Kommentar). Die Einbände an den Kanten gering berieben, insgesamt von hervorragender Erhaltung. Erste Ausgabe der maßgeblichen Bestandsaufnahme thüringischer Bau- und Kunstdenkmäler. Erschien über einen Zeitraum von dreißig Jahren verteilt auf insgesamt 41 Lieferungen, welche wiederum in sieben, den historisch gewachsenen oder modernen Verwaltungseinheiten entsprechenden Abteilungen angeordnet wuden: I. Großherzogtum Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach, II. Herzogtum Sachsen-Meiningen, III. Herzogtum Sachsen-Altenburg, IV. Herzogtum Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, V. Fürstentum Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, VI. Fürstentum Reuss Älterer Linie, VII. Fürstentum Reuss Jüngerer Linie. – Da die einzelnen Lieferungen des Werkes nicht chronologisch ihrer planmäßigen Nummerierung entsprechend erschienen, sondern jeweils erst in teils weit auseinanderliegenden Jahren abgeschlossen wurden, sind vollständige Exemplare selbst einzelner der genannten Abteilungen schwer auffindbar. Geschlossene, vollständige und einheitlich gebundene Exemplare der gesamten Reihe wie hier vorliegend sind eine Rarität. – Im Vergleich mit der Kollation der Einzellieferungen scheinen in den Vorstücken der sieben Abteilungen unseres Exemplares zunächst einige Seiten zu fehlen, jedoch ist dieser scheinbare Fehlbestand auf redundante, also wiederholt inkludierte (Gesamt-)register der Einzellieferungen zurückzuführen. Natürlich machte es für den Vorbesitzer keinen Sinn, diese mehrfach beizubinden. Das Werk kann daher guten Gewissens als komplett gelten. 25000 g

        AN ORIGINAL WARM MATTE-FINISH PORTRAIT OF THE GREAT ACTOR HAROLD LLOYD INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY HIM TO THE AMERICAN AUTHOR MARY ROBERTS RINEHART

      [circa 1917]. [circa 1917]. - [circa 1917]. [circa 1917]. Fine. INSCRIBED BY HAROLD LLOYD TO THE MYSTERY WRITER MARY ROBERTS RINEHART & SIGNED BY LLOYD - sc An original 13-1/2 inch high by 10-1/2 inch wide matte-finish gelatin silver photograph of the great Hollywood silent film comic actor. Depicted in three-quarter profile from the chest up against a soft matte-black background. Dressed in a dark suit and tie with round wire-framed glasses beneath neatly combed hair, Harold Lloyd looks toward the unseen camera, and consequently the viewer, with a gentle smile. Inscribed in silver white ink diagonally across the bottom left: "Mary Roberts Rinehart - / A great artist - / Sincerely / Harold Lloyd". The "R" and the "n" in "Rinehart" are faded. The edges of the borders were unevenly cropped to fit an old frame. A fine superb photograph with a strong inscription and autograph. Harold Lloyd (1893-1971) ranks alongside Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the great comedians of the silent screen era. His nearly 200 comedy films, made between 1914 and 1947 span both the silent era and that of the talkies. He is quoted as saying, in reference to his career and the persona he created: "There is more magic in a pair of horn-rimmed glasses than the opticians dream of, nor did I guess the half of it when I put them on in 1917."Considered as the American Agatha Christie, Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876-1958) was an influential mystery writer who is considered the "founder" of the "Had-I- But-Known" school and was considered the originator of the phrase "The butler did it", though she never did use that phrase. Bob Kanes cites her costumed criminal "The Bat" as the inspiration for "Batman". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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

      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.

        IVORY TOWER

      New York Charles Scribner’s Sons 1917 - First edition, consisting of only 1500 copies, far scarcer then the English issue. 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, with the scarce original dustjacket preserved. 357 pp. A fine copy of the book with just a bit of mild bumping to the corners, the scarce jacket is generally complete but with evidence of old repairs and some loss and separation, now protected wrap-over cover, and there is some light fading to some portions of the cloth where light shown through breaks in the dustjacket. VERY SCARCE IN DUSTJACKET. First Edition, consisting of only 1500 copies, of James’ posthumously published unfinished novel. James was writing the novel in 1914 but stopped work on it due to the outbreak of the war. With such a momentous event occurring, he felt that the novel no longer represented contemporary life. The novel is a brooding story of Gilded Age America. It centers on the riches earned by a pair of dying millionaires and ex-partners, Abel Gaw and Frank Betterman, and their possibly corrupting effect on the people around them.

        An Inquiry into the Nature of Peace and the Terms of its Perpetuation.

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1917. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spine gilt, double frames to boards in blind. Pencil underlining throughout. Spine slightly darkened, extremities a touch rubbed. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing of Veblen's treatise on peace, how it may be achieved and retained, as well as the possible effects of perpetual peace on society. Presentation copy inscribed by Veblen on the front free endpaper: "To Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt, Thorstein Veblen." Nordfeldt (1878?1955) was a Swedish-American artist who painted two portraits of Veblen, both now lost. Nordfeldt studied art in the U.S. and Europe. Between 1903 and 1907 he lived in Chicago, depicting Chicago landmarks and scenes, and it was most likely during this period that he also painted Veblen's likeness (Tilman, Thorstein Veblen, John Dewey, C. Wright Mills and the Generic Ends of Life, p.142).

At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells). "From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914). Dale 34. Footnote: Not to be confused with another book of the same title [WAIN, Louis. RACKHAM, Arthur. SMITH, H. Officer. GLADWIN, May, et al. Cats At Play. London: John F. Shaw, n.d. [c. 1900-1904]. This edition is unrecorded and scarce, with no copies in institutional holdings worldwide, and not noted in the Wain or Rackham bibliographies. Small quarto (9 5/8 x 7 1/8 in; 245 x 180 mm). 160 pp., with advertising as endpapers. Illustrated throughout in black and white and color, with fifteen drawings by Louis Wain, and an unrecorded text drawing by Arthur Rackham (so initialed) on page 40. (see DB 02471).

        Mitteilungs-Blatt des Verbandes der sozialdemokratischen Wahlvereine Berlins und Umgegend. 12. Jahrgang, Nr. 1, 1. April 1917 bis Nr. 53, 31. März 1918.

      (Seywald 680). Um das Mitteilungsblatt herum formierte sich die innersozialdemokratische Opposition der Sozialdemokratischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft von Hugo Haase, Georg Ledebour und Wilhelm Dittmann, die sich an den Ostertagen 1917 im Thüringerischen Gotha zur Unabhängigen Sozialdemokratischen Partei Deutschlands (USPD) erklärte und fortan mit der sog. Mehrheitssozialdemokratie von Fr. Ebert, Ph. Scheidemann und Eduard David in Konkurrenz stand. In der Nr. 5 resümiert Karl Kautsky die Gründungskonferenz der USPD, in dem er sich gegen den Vorwurf der MSPD wendet, man habe die deutsche Sozialdemokratie gespalten: ?[...]. Was man als die Spaltung der deutschen Sozialdemokratie bezeichnet, das vollzog sich nicht in Gotha, das wurde vorher vollbracht, und zwar nicht von der Opposition. Ihr weitaus größter Teil hatte vielmehr stets energisch seinen Willen bekundet, in der Partei zu bleiben, in ihrem Rahmen den oppositionellen Kampf gegen die im Parteivorstand kulminierende Richtung zu führen. Es war diese Richtung, die, dank den Machtmitteln, über die sie unter dem Belagerungszustand verfügte, mit der Opposition dadurch fertig zu werden suchte, daß sie sie aus der Partei ausschloß. Will man das eine Spaltung nennen, dann wurde sie von der Mehrheit vollzogen.? Einband wellig und fleckig. Einzelne Nummern altersbedingt gebräunt, insgesamt guter Zustand dieses seltenen Jahrgangs des ?Mitteilungs-Blatts? der sich formierenden USPD. Einzelnummern zeitgenössisch eingebunden. Papier altersbedingt gebräunt. Einband stärker fleckig und gewölbt.

        The Mississippi Valley in British Politics.

      Cleveland, OH: the Arthur H. Clark Company,, 1917. A study of the trade, land speculation, and experiments in imperialism culminating in the American Revolution. 2 volumes, octavo (237 x 153 mm). Contemporary blue half morocco, raised bands gilt to spines, compartments lettered or decorated in gilt, blue moiré cloth sides ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Colour map frontispiece to each volume and 2 further maps. Contemporary bookplate of Francis A. Hardy and Mary Parry to front pastedowns. Pale marking to morocco of volume 1, extremities lightly rubbed, head of rear joint of volume 2 discreetly restored, front inner hinges superficially cracked but sound, tan-burn to endpapers from turn-ins. A very good copy. First edition of this important study, which received the Loubat Prize for 1918 and was reviewed favourably on publication by O. G. Libby, who considered Alvord "completely successful in maintaining his thesis that the Mississippi valley at a critical period in our history was again and again a determining factor in British politics. The part played by William Pitt, George III, Lord North, Shelburne, Hillsborough, Dartmouth, and a host of lesser lights is carefully dissected ? Here, too, we meet among the large group of Americans the familiar figures of Washington, Sir William Johnson, Franklin, Jeffersen, and Patrick Henry ? The separate topics dealt with have more than once been presented in detail by various writers but nowhere have they been in combined in a single treatment so as to bring out their relative importance in the whole scheme of colonial policy" (The Mississippi Valley Historical Review, Vol. 4, No. 1, June 1917, p. 131). "Alvord was one of the most erudite and creative of that school of American historians whose work was inspired and guided by the frontier theory of Frederick Jackson Turner. He continued the search for the spirit of the American frontier ? This search took the mid-western scholar to England for research in the papers of Lord Shelburne, a close contemporary and colleague of Benjamin Franklin and a major directing force in the success and expansion of the American empire of private property. Alvord's ringing endorsements of the ideas and visions that animated the land speculators vividly illustrates how important their conceptions have been in shaping the ethos of the continuing American Revolution" (Hall and Hall, The American Empire and the Fourth World, p. 361).

He soon became a cult figure for Irish republicans. His writings, speeches and poems became widely popular during the subsequent violent struggle for Irish independence and in subsequent decades. Patrick Pearse was the son of James Pearse, a Unitarian stonemason from Birmingham who moved to Dublin and established a successful business on Great Brunswick Street later renamed Pearse Street. James Pearse married his second wife Margaret Brady. His great aunt also named Margaret and his schooling at Westland Row CBS, gave Pearse a life long love of the Irish language and influenced his Irish nationalist outlook. As a teenager Pearse joined the Gaelic League and in his early 20s became editor of its newspaper An Claidheamh Soluis. His heroes were Cuchulainn and rebel leaders such as Wolfe Tone and Robert Emmet. Pearse was also a devout Roman Catholic. He studied in the Royal University of Ireland and studied law at the King's Inns, Dublin before becoming a barrister. In the early 1900s, Pearse set up St. Enda's School in south Dublin where boys were taught in both the English and Irish language while a St. Ita's had similar aims for girls. He believed that schooling in the Irish language would ensure its survival and the Irish language was inseparable from Irish nationhood. However the project led to financial difficulties while many parents who sent their children to the school were disturbed by Pearse's radical nationalist ideas. Several former students fought against British rule in later years. Pearse's activities came to the notice of radical Irish republicans in Ireland and the U.S. By 1913 Pearse was a leading member of the IRB and the Irish Volunteers. He shared political platforms with the nationalist John Redmond MP leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party and supported the campaign for Irish Home Rule. A Home Rule bill was passed by the House of Commons in 1914 but was shelved following the outbreak of the Great War the same year. The majority of the volunteers joined the British Army and fought in the conflict. Pearse lost faith in Home Rule and with other IRB leaders plotted a rising against British rule. Pearse gave a famous oration in 1915 at the graveside of veteran Fenian Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa declaring that ' Ireland unfree shall never be at peace.' On Easter Monday, 24 April 1916, a rump of the Irish Volunteers joined forces with radical socialist James Connally's Irish Citizens Army militia and captured the GPO and other buildings in Dublin . Pearse read the Proclamation of the Irish Republic which declared Ireland to be an independent republic. A week of bloody fighting followed before the rebels surrendered to British forces in Dublin . Pearse and his fellow prisoners were treated with hostility by many Dubliners for the death and destruction of property caused during the Rising. He and fourteen others including his brother Willie were court martialled by General Maxwell and sentenced to death. Pearse was executed at Kilmainham Jail on 3rd May, 1916. Subsequent to the executions, Irish public opinion swung in favour of Irish republicanism and in the election of 1918, Sinn Fein candidates, many of whom had fought with Pearse in 1916, eclipsed the Home Rule orientated Irish Parliamentary Party. The outcome of the Irish War of Independence and Irish Civil War that followed was the partition of Ireland and not the fully independent Irish republic that Pearse had envisioned. (Source: Ask about Ireland)Séamus (James) Fitzgerald (21 August 1896 23 July 1972) was an Irish politician. He was elected unopposed as a Sinn Féin Teachta Dála (TD) to the 2nd Dáil at the 1921 elections for the Cork East and North East constituency. Fitzgerald was born in Cobh (then known as Queenstown) in 1896. He joined the Irish Volunteers in 1914 and was mobilised in Cork in preparation for the Easter Rising in 1916. When the Rising failed to spread beyond Dublin and some other limited actions, Fitzgerald and many of his Cork comrades was interned in Britain. After the amnesty for prisoners he rejoined what had now become the Irish Republican Army (IRA) in Cobh and also became active in the Sinn Féin party. He was elected a member of the town's first republican Urban District Council (now Cobh Town Council) at the 1919 local elections and was elected chairman at its first meeting. He opposed the Anglo-Irish Treaty and voted against it. He stood as an anti-Treaty Sinn Féin candidate at the 1922 general election but was not elected. He joined Fianna Fáil in 1926 shortly after its foundation and was to remain a prominent member of the party in the Cork area for the next 50 years until his death. He was elected to the Irish Free State Seanad in 1934 and served until it was abolished in 1936. He stood in several elections for that party in both Cork East and Cork City but was only successful on one occasion when elected to the short-lived 11th Dáil as a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála (TD) for the Cork Borough constituency at the 1943 general election. He lost his seat at the 1944 general election. Fitzgerald owned a local business in Cobh and was an active member of the local Chamber of Commerce as well as Cork Harbour Commissioners (now the Port of Cork Company). He held several directorships in local companies. Séamus Fitzgerald died in 1972. (Wikipedia)

        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.
