        To Turn the Tide. The Goals of President Kennedys First Legislative Year, as Revealed in His Statements and Addresses from His Election Through the 1961 Adjournment of Congress. Mit einem Vorwort von Carl Sandburg und einer speziellen Einführung von Präsident Kennedy.

      235 Seiten 8, gebundene Ausgabe mit Schutzumschlag, sauber und frisch, auf dem Vorsatz Signatur des ehemaligen US-Präsidenten. Beiliegend ein "Certificate of Authenticity" der McDuff Company. John Fitzgerald Jack Kennedy (* 29. Mai 1917 in Brookline, Massachusetts - + 22. November 1963 in Dallas, Texas), aufgrund seiner Initialen auch JFK genannt, war von 1961 bis 1963 der 35. Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten und Mitglied der Demokratischen Partei. Kennedy war der jüngste ins Amt gewählte und der insgesamt zweitjüngste US-Präsident (nach Theodore Roosevelt, der als Vizepräsident nach der Ermordung William McKinleys automatisch ins Präsidentenamt nachrückte). Zudem war er der bislang einzige Katholik in diesem Amt. Die Hintergründe seiner Ermordung 1963 sind bis heute umstritten.

      Das Selbstverständnis des von der amerikanischen Regierung mitfinanzierten Verlags wurde so formuliert: "Der Verlag sieht seine Aufgabe darin, dem breiteren Publikum Werke hervorragender Autoren in deutscher und fremder Sprache im Original und in Übersetzungen zu billigen Preisen zugõnglich zu machen. Er hofft damit zum internationalen Verständnis und zur politischen Emanzipation beizutragen." Das charakteristische Verlagssignet, zwei expressionistisch ausschreitende Männer mit einer wehenden Fahne, zeichnete Hans Richter, der Ende 1917 den Auftrag erhält und es auf Briefpapier des Zürcher City Hotel skizzierte.

        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].. 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. <p>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."<p>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".

        EZRA POUND HIS METRIC AND POETRY

      New York: Knopf, 1917. Rose boards, stamped in gilt. Top edge dusty, spine typically lightly sunned, foxing to verso of portrait and offset to title, as usual, otherwise a very good copy of this fragile title, in the plain wrapper (with small, old internal mends). First edition of Eliot's anonymously published second book, superintended by John Quinn as a promotional for LUSTRA. According to Gallup, one of one thousand copies printed -- however, the frequency with which copies turn up - particularly in light of the attrition rate one would expect for a book so delicate - can't help but suggest the edition may have possibly been a bit larger.

        ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DELIVERED AT A JOINT SESSION OF THE HOUSES OF CONGRESS APRIL 2, 1917

Publisher's flexible green leather with gilt title on the front cover, [4], 30 pages. The text of Wilson's Declaration of War against Germany, SIGNED by the President and dated 1922 on the front free end paper. Wilson had been reelected just a few months before this speech in large part for his having kept America out of the European war, but Germany's unrestricted submarine warfare could no longer be ignored. In this speech Wilson made a profound break with traditional American foreign policy by presenting a Progressive view of foreign policy that national interest alone cannot guide American policy, that "The world must be made safe for democracy.

        Six Months in Politics by "West Country Miner.

      [London:] Harrison and Sons,, 1917. [This Book is printed for the Private Record of the Recipient only.] Quarto (245 x 182 mm). Original beige cloth, covers with blind rule border, spine lettered gilt. Frontispiece portrait of Lord Kitchener, "drawn specially for 'The People' by E. Huskinson. (Reprinted from "The People," June 4th, 1916)" and four photogravure plates. Inscribed "P. A. O'Brien With the compliments of The Author 6.XI.19" below the limitation statement and dated March 1917 beneath "West Country Miner." Covers splashed with oil paint flecks, joints, corners and spine ends rubbed and worn, inner hinges cracked but firm; a very good copy. First and only edition of a collection of articles dedicated to "that Great Nation who strong through suffering bore single-handed at Verdun the death-bleeding Burden for her backward Allies - backward through no lack of Will for Service, but from their Failure to Prepare for the Struggle - I, conscious of its imperfections, venture humbly to offer this Record of Endeavour as evidence of the Yearning of the British Common People to Suffer with La France until at length, through that Sacrifice and Service in which she has set so inspiring an example, we Achieve Emancipation from World Slavery to combat which, tools of Peace laid aside, we gripped ourselves to Endure to Victory or Death." The author, a self-styled "West Country Miner", recounts his political adventures during the First World War, seeking to support Lord Kitchener over Lloyd George, and reprints much of the correspondence published at the time in various political journals and newspapers. Loosely inserted is a carbon copy of a letter sent to the recipient of this copy, P. A. O'Brien of Constancia Consolidated Inc., in Nicaragua, in which the "West Country Miner" described the book as "a record for my friends of the motives that suddenly impelled me into effort in an entirely new direction." Also loosely inserted is a single printed sheet, extracted from "The World's Work" of July, 1918, entitled Lord Kitchener and Mr. Schwab. The volume ends with the reprinting of a poem by Laurence Binyon, entitled "Kitchener", originally published in the Evening Standard of March 15, 1917.

        Mark Twain's Letters

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1917. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good +. A Fine copy of this two-volume set of Mark Twain's Letters, the same being arranged and commented upon by Albert Bigelow Paine, and being one of 350 sets of this Large Paper Edition, illustrated. Chemised and slipcased, the Volumes are in Fine condition with each volume showing a mild bump / binding defect to its front board's upper right corner. Volume II lacks the tissue guard to its frontispiece. The set wears a Very Good or better example of the rare dust jackets which, being oversized (as issued), in addition to water spotting to the spine panels, show some wear and tear to the portions which overlap the board edges and spine ends. Each dust jacket also shows some additional edge tearing with some of the tears stabilized by archival tape applied to the verso. The two-volume trade edition was bound in red cloth and copies of it are, in our experience, far from common. Copies of this Limited edition -- bound with a cloth spine and paper-covered boards -- of which only 350 were issued, are quite scarce indeed and copies in their original dust jackets (in any condition) are somewhere between being as scarce as hen's teeth and RARE. An EXCELLENT SET OF THE 350-COPY LIMITED EDITION IN THEIR ORIGINAL DUST JACKETS which are, in our experience, RARE INDEED.

        Scrapbook-diary documenting two years spent by a female singer performing for U. S. soldiers stationed in France during World War One. Compiled by Beulah Chase Dodge.

      France, 1917-1919. This large 12? x 14? scrapbook contains 100 pages chock-full of diary entries, photographs, official documents, programs, postcards, pamphlets, letters, newspaper clippings, menus, travel vouchers, schedules, dog tag, autographs of Queen Marie of Romania, and more. The contents are in very nice shape. The handwriting is small and dense but legible. The pages are starting to brittle and have edge-wear that affects the text in a few pages. The first two leaves are disbound; all of the rest have had their binding holes reinforced and been reinserted into the album. The album cover has minor wear. Ms. Dodge, who was originally from Syracuse, New York singer and performed in the theater around the turn-of-the-century while she was in her twenties and thirties. When it became clear the United States would be sending soldiers overseas to fight in World War One, she volunteered her services to deploy along with them as a YMCA worker where she and her group, The Liberty Quartet, performed in tents and in the open wherever doughboys were assigned. This is a treasure trove of material with detailed notes about almost all of the attached ephemera and Dodge?s writing provides exceptional insight not simply into the life of an American female service worker deployed with the American Expeditionary Force, but one who performed for the doughboys, often close to the frontlines. While Dodge?s narrative is without doubt the heart of this album, highlights of its other contents include * Dodge?s YMCA National War Work Council international identification certificate and U.S. YMCA dogtag; * Dodge?s Armee Americane Ordre de Service and several YMCA Movement Orders; * Dodge?s Authorization to wear the War Service Chevron; * An ?Official Citations? card presented by the 2nd Division; * Dodge?s Certificate of Release and Honorable Discharge Certificate; * Dodge?s passport; * Photographs of The Liberty Quartet; * Seven photographs of the ?Y? Girls Baseball Team playing a game; * Many photographs of soldiers and service workers; * Two photographs of Dodge singing for soldiers on atroopship heading home; * The pamphlet, ?Experiences in a Camp Canteen? containing reminiscences of the service workers who opened the first YMCA canteen in France; * A YMCA Songbook; * Dodge?s colorful luncheon place card autographed by Romania?s Queen Marie; * French bread ration tickets and ; * Victory editions of the Paris edition of the New York Herald and the Continental edition of Daily Mail. Very scarce. Detailed journals of World War One YMCA or Red Cross workers for even short periods of time are uncommon, and 100-page diary-scrapbooks documenting two-years spent by a female YMCA entertainer traveling throughout France to entertain doughboys are simply otherwise non-existent. As of 2016, nothing similar is for sale in the trade nor listed in OCLC, and there are no auction records for similar items at ABPC, Rare Book Hub, or WorthPoint.

        Autograph letter signed

      1917 - FROST, Robert. Autograph letter signed. Amherst, Mass: January 6, 1917. One sheet of laid paper (10 by 6-1/2 inches), folded once to make four pages, written on all four pages. $2800.Lengthy, four-page autograph letter signed by Frost to his friend Robert von Moschzisker, Pennsylvania Supreme Court judge and legal author, regarding improvements Frost was making to his "little old farm house"&#157; and making arrangements for an upcoming visit.The letter, penned entirely by Frost, reads in full: "Amherst Mass. January 6 1917. Dear von Moschzisker: We too have deserted the high places for the winter. We have come to Amherst to profess Poetry till next June (no later). And it was well we had Amherst to come to, because we had about driven ourselves out of our house in Franconia by the building operations we had set going in it. The changes we are making in the house are mostly on the inside: they hardly show on the outside""not at all from the front: our object has been to keep it what it was, a little old farm house: but we had ripped up floors and moved windows and doors till we hadn't any where to lay our heads or sit down to read a book. So, as I say, it was a mercy that we were asked to come to Amherst just when we were. I tell you all this about the house because I saw that Mrs. von Moschzisker looked worried when I told her we were going to make it more habitable. You can assure her we have saved it about as it was. "The book came when I was in the middle of moving and a dozen other things. I haven't had time for it yet. I shall be sure to have a lot of pleasure out of it. A friend of yours edited the one you sent a year ago. As it happens a friend of mine, John Erskine, edited the one you send this year. I notice one omission on your part: you failed to write your name on the fly leaf of the book where I should like to have had it. "Now as to when we were thinking of visiting you. I spoke of January 28th. That still seems the best date. I shall have engagements on both sides of Philadelphia at Baltimore and at Princeton just before and after the 28th. Elinor will be with me.

Covers splashed with oil paint flecks, joints, corners and spine ends rubbed and worn, inner hinges cracked but firm; a very good copy. Frontispiece portrait of Lord Kitchener, "drawn specially for 'The People' by E. Huskinson. (Reprinted from "The People," June 4th, 1916)" and four photogravure plates. Inscribed "P. A. O'Brien With the compliments of The Author 6.XI.19" below the limitation statement and dated March 1917 beneath "West Country Miner." First and only edition of a collection of articles dedicated to "that Great Nation who strong through suffering bore single-handed at Verdun the death-bleeding Burden for her backward Allies - backward through no lack of Will for Service, but from their Failure to Prepare for the Struggle - I, conscious of its imperfections, venture humbly to offer this Record of Endeavour as evidence of the Yearning of the British Common People to Suffer with La France until at length, through that Sacrifice and Service in which she has set so inspiring an example, we Achieve Emancipation from World Slavery to combat which, tools of Peace laid aside, we gripped ourselves to Endure to Victory or Death." The author, a self-styled "West Country Miner", recounts his political adventures during the First World War, seeking to support Lord Kitchener over Lloyd George, and reprints much of the correspondence published at the time in various political journals and newspapers. Loosely inserted is a carbon copy of a letter sent to the recipient of this copy, P. A. O'Brien of Constancia Consolidated Inc., in Nicaragua, in which the "West Country Miner" described the book as "a record for my friends of the motives that suddenly impelled me into effort in an entirely new direction." Also loosely inserted is a single printed sheet, extracted from "The World's Work" of July, 1918, entitled Lord Kitchener and Mr. Schwab. The volume ends with the reprinting of a poem by Laurence Binyon, entitled "Kitchener", originally published in the Evening Standard of March 15, 1917. Copac locates a single copy, at the London School of Economics; Not found in OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Dubliners. Second printing, April 1917.

      Huebsch, New York 1917 - 288 S. Orig.-Leinenband. Nachdem vierzig Verlage die Publikation aufgrund moralischer Bedenken abgelehnt hatten (das englische Recht sah die Bestrafung von Druckern und Verlegern obszöner Literatur vor), erschien das Buch schließlich 1914 in London bei Grant Richards. Die Auflage betrug 1250 Exemplare, von denen 746 einen Käufer fanden. Die Druckbögen der restlichen 504 Exemplare verkaufte Richards dem New Yorker Verleger B. W. Huebsch für eine amerikanische Ausgabe, die - mit entsprechendem Titelblatt versehen - 1916 erschien, zeitgleich mit der Erstausgabe des Romans "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man". Bei unserem Exemplar handelt es sich um den zweiten Druck der "Dubliners" (den ersten vom amerikanischen Neusatz). Das hintere fliegende Vorsatzpapier wurde entfernt und das hintere Innengelenk ist teilweise aufgeplatzt. Auf dem vorderen Vorsatzpapier wurde ein mit Tinte geschriebener Name entfernt und die letzten 6 Blatt haben einen kleinen Eckabriß (weit außerhalb des Textes). Außerdem ist das Papier ab S. 193 deutlich gebräunt und S. 257/8 hat am oberen Blattrand eine kleine Fehlstelle. Der Einband ist an den Gelenken und den Deckelkanten etwas berieben, am Rücken hat das Leinen oben und unten jeweils geringe Fehlstellen. Trotz dieser Gebrauchsspuren handelt es sich um ein insgesamt noch ordentliches Exemplar der 2. Auflage von Joyce' erster Buchveröffentlichung, einer Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten über Einwohner Dublins, die heute als Meilenstein moderner englischer Prosa gilt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With original hand coloured paper wraps bound in thisbook. With illustrations by George Antoine Rochegroose, a French historical and decorative painter and then wood-engraved by Barbant. Les Fleurs du Mal or The Flowers of Evil, is an entire volume of poetry by the eminentFrench author CharlesBaudelaire. It was first published in 1857 and a pioneering and important work inboth the symbolist and modernist movements. Thematically this poemdeals with decadence and eroticism. It issegregated thematically into six sections. Through this work Baudelaire conveys his ideas of the changing nature of beauty in a modern, industrialising,society. This particular work of Baudelaires has great significance due to its initial reception. Originally both the author and publisher were prosecuted as this work was viewed as an insult to public decency. Baudelaire was fined 300 francs from this prosecution. Charles Baudelaire was an eminentFrench poet of the nineteenth century. Most notably, Baudelaire is credited withcoining the term 'modernity' to designate the ephemeral, yet fleeting experience of life in an urban metropolis.
