        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Vitznau, 30. April [um 1917/18].

      1917. 4 SS. 4to. Ausführlicher Brief an die Schriftstellerin Grete Meisel-Heß, bezüglich deren Werkes "Die Bedeutung der Monogamie" (Verlag Eugen Diederichs, Jena 1917) und der Schauspielerin Gemma Boic (1883-1914), die sich 1914 das Leben nahm: "Eben habe ich die letzte Zeile Ihres Buches: Die Bed. D. Monog. gelesen und fühle das Bedürfnis Ihnen zu sagen, dass es wirklich in jeder Weise ausgezeichnet ist. Aber nicht dies alleine ist der Grund meines Briefes, der, was die Zustimmung Ihrer Ansichten anbelangt, sicher viele Brüder hat, sondern eine kleine Anmerkung die Sie über Gemma Boic machten. Ich kannte dieses unglückliche Mädchen, wir waren Schülerinnen einer sehr verehrten Mozartspielerin in Wien und Frl. Boic suchte mich auf Grund dieser Bekanntschaft in Berlin auf, um sich mit mir über ihre Pläne auszusprechen. Sie war damals schon irgendwo engagiert gewesen und klagte mir, dass sie schwer weiterkomme. Ich hörte mit grosser Teilnahme zu, denn mich interessierte das temperamentvolle Geschöpf, dann schwankte ich lange ob ich mit meinem Rat herausrücken sollte. Endlich überwand ich meine Schüchternheit, die mich bei solchen Anlässen leider immer überfällt und ich riet ihr sich mit allem Eifer auf das Erlernen - der deutschen Sprache - zu werfen [...] Die Folge war, dass Frl. Boic sich aufs Tiefste gekränkt von mir zurückzog und nie mehr etwas von mir wissen wollte [...] Leider, leider, wollen gerade die Talentiertesten nichts davon hören, dass man arbeiten, arbeiten und wieder arbeiten muss. Ja, sie halten es sogar für ein Zeichen von Untalentiertheit, wenn man arbeitet. Ihnen, verehrte Frau, brauche ich das Törichte dieser Gedanken, nicht auseinanderzusetzen [...] Als die Brochüre über sie erschien, wurde sie mir von einem Herrn mit höhnischen Worten zugeschickt, der mich ungefähr beschuldigte, Frl. Boic ins Unglück getrieben zu haben. Hat sie derartiges geäussert so war sie geistig anormal, denn ich hatte sie gänzlich aus den Augen verloren und nie habe ich in meinem ganzen Leben Talente unterdrückt [...]". - Gefaltet und etwas knittrig. - Durieux debütierte 1901 in Olmütz und war 1903-11 eine der ersten Schauspielerinnen Max Reinhardts in Berlin. Danach spielte sie am Lessingtheater und am Berliner Kgl. Durieux war in zweiter Ehe bis 1926 mit Paul Cassirer verheiratet, ging nach dem Machtwechsel 1933 auf Auslandstournee, ließ sich später mit ihrem dritten Mann in Agram nieder und spielte noch kurz vor dem "Anschluß" in Wien und Prag. Nach der Deportation ihres Manns durch die Gestapo für die jugoslawischen Partisanen tätig, lebte sie von der Herstellung von Puppen für das kroatische Marionettendrama. Durieux kehrte 1952 an deutsche Bühnen zurück, wurde Mitglied des Bremer Theaters und spielte an den großen Berliner Bühnen. Nach ihrer ersten Filmrolle 1953 war sie seit 1957 auch für Rundfunk und Fernsehen tätig und erhielt zahlreiche Auszeichnungen in Ost- und Westdeutschland, darunter 1967 den Professorentitel.

        War's Echo.

      London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1917. Small octavo. Original green wrappers, titles and illustration in dark green. With the dust jacket. Endpapers spotted but an excellent copy in jacket that is a little spine tanned and somewhat chipped around the edges. First edition, a remarkable survival in the dust jacket, of this rare collection of First World war poems by Ronald Gurner (1890-1939), a schoolmaster of Marlborough School, where one of his pupils had been Charles Sorley. At the outbreak of the war he joined up and was gazetted in the 8th Battalion, Rifle Brigade. In May 1915 he was posted to France, having been transferred to the Divisional Cyclist Company. He went on to become Intelligence Officer to various Brigade in the 14th Division. He first saw action at Arras, where, on 10 April 1917, as cmpany commander in an advanced position, he rallied his men to hold out against counter attacks. Badly wounded in the arm, he was eventaully rescued and later awarded the Military Cross. After convalescing he was appointed as a War Office Censor and at the end of the war resumed his teaching career at Marlborough. He later became headmaster of the Whitgift School in Croydon but ran into debt and suffered increasingly from the psychological effects of the war. He took his own life in May 1939. His book is fairly well represented institutionally, with OCLC listing 17 copies worldwide, but appears to be rare in the trade.

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Spine panel slightly faded, spine rolled and starting but text block tight, endpapers lightly toned. A very good copy. The so-called second edition, and the first edition to be printed in the UK. It was preceded by the English issue of the Huebsch edition of 1916. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialisation of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws, so Huebsch undertook the true first publication in the US. He send around 750 sets of American sheets for issue in the UK in February 1917; it was preceded by the US issue in December 1916.

Roworth, 1917. 8vo., First Edition, with a full-page plan; strongly bound in contemporary red buckram, backstrip lettered in gilt, uncut, ORIGINAL WRAPPERS PRESERVED, a near fine copy. A PRESENTATION COPY FROM SIR JOHN (LATER VISCOUNT) SIMON TO MAJOR A W H JAMES WITH THE FORMER'S SIGNED HOLOGRAPH INSCRIPTION ON FRONT WRAPPER. A FINE AND RELEVANT A.L.s FROM SIMON TO JAMES IS MOUNTED ON REAR ENDPAPER. The letter is written from HQ, Royal Flying Corps, where Simon served briefly on Lord Trenchard's staff during WWI. Major James has noted the context in a neat hand on inner wrapper: 'Immediately after the trial John Simon came out to HQ, RFC, France, and was attached under instruction to my squadron, No. 6, at Abeele. I had known Simon when I was at Cambridge, and he and Ernest Burge had a hunting box at Huntingdon. John Simon, whom I got to know very well later, in the same mess at HQ. RFC, and later in the H. of C [House of Commons] was intrigued to meet someone who knew his client, Malcolm, well. John Allsebrook Simon, KC, 1st Viscount Simon (1873-1954) is one of only three British politicians to have served as Home Secretary, Foreign Secretary [under Churchill] and Chancellor of the Exchequer. In the sensational trial of Lieutenant [Douglas] Malcolm of the Royal Artillery for the murder of Anton Baumberg [Count de Borch], Simon led the Defence. After the summing-up by the Judge [Justice McCardie] the Jury retired and after twenty-five minutes' absence returned a verdict of 'Not Guilty'. RARE, AND IN THIS CASE CONTEXTUALLY UNIQUE.

        ["No. 27 | Der letzte Streitpunkt"]. Originalzeichnung, signiert "KAW". O. O., [wohl 1917].

      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.

        Umfangreiche Sammlung von 265 Sonderdrucken und selbständig erschienenen Abhandlungen zur Herpetologie.

      Verschieden Druckorte, verschiedene Verlage, 1917 - 1975. Mit einer Vielzahl von Tafeln, Verbreitungskarten und Textabbildungen, die einzelnen Arbeiten mit einem Umfang von 2 - 380 Seiten. Unterschiedliche Formate von 8° (22 x 15 cm) bis 4° (30 x 21 cm), unterschiedliche Einbände, geheftet mit oder ohne Umschlag, Rückenbroschur und bedruckte Orig.-Broschur. Adler I, S. 98-99; Schirner \"Die Veröffentlichungen von Robert Mertens\" S. 12 - 104. - Professor Robert Mertens (1894-1975), war ein deutscher Zoologe und Herpetologe. Nach seinem Studium war er seit 1919 zuerst Assistent, ab 1920 Kurator für Herpetologie, ab 1934 Leiter der zoologischen Sektion und von 1947 an Direktor des Senckenberg Museums in Frankfurt am Main. Mertens war nicht nur einer der bedeutensten Herpetologen seiner Zeit, sondern auch einer der produktivsten aller Zeiten. Die Liste seiner wissenschaftlichen Publikationen umfasst nahezu 800 Arbeiten, darunter auch 13 Buchpublikationen. - Die angebotene Sammlung enthält neben einer Vielzahl kleinerer Aufsätze, auch große und bekannte Abhandlungen wie: Famile der Warane 3 Bde., Die Inselreptilien..., Die Warn- und Droh-Reaktionen der Reptilien, Die Amphibien und Reptilien Südwestafrikas, Die Amphibien und Reptilien von El Savador, Herpetologische Ergebnisse einer Reise nach der Insel Hispaniola, Herpetologische Ergebnisse einer Reise nach Kamerun, Die Ampibien und Reptilien der Inseln Bali Lombok Sumbawa und Flores - und viele mehr. Einige Arbeiten mit handschriftlicher Widmung von Mertens oder dessen eigenhändiger Signatur. - Wenige Arbeiten mit kleineren Gebrauchspuren, Randläsuren oder kleinen Einrissen. Insgesamt sehr guter Zustand. - Eine so umfangreiche Sammlung der Arbeiten von Mertens ist sehr selten. Sie selbst zusammenzustellen, würde viele Jahre in Anspruch nehmen und sicher ein Mehrfaches des hier gefragten Preises kosten. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        A SON OF THE MIDDLE BORDER

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1917. Reprint. Hardcover. Both hinges cracked and repaired. Good copy with a great association. Decorated cloth. Illustrated by Alice Barber Stephens. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Garland to Albert Bigelow Paine, "the biographer of Mr./O possum and Mr./B. Crow, and others./From his admiring/friend- and family./H. Garland/Jan. 1918./The year of the/End of the great war." There are also a handful of notes and corrections to the text (including the spelling of Paine's name on p. 419!) presumably in Garland or Paine's hand. Laid in are two 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" original photographs--one a fine portrait of Garland and the other of Garland's Wisconsin residence--each INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Garland to Paine. Wonderful association material of two significant turn-of-the-century literary figures, both of whom used the American West as subject material. Paine, of course, is known also as Mark Twain's biographer.

        Romance of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table, The

      1917. One of 500 Copies, Signed by Arthur Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. MALORY, [Sir Thomas]. The Romance of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table. Abridged from Malory?s Morte d?Arthur by Alfred W. Pollard. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Macmillan and Co., 1917.Edition de Luxe. Limited to 500 copies (this being copy No. 128), numbered and signed by the artist. Quarto (11 1/8 x 8 7/8 inches; 282 x 226 mm.). [2, half-title], [2, limitation leaf], [iii]-xxiv, 509, [1, blank] pp. Sixteen mounted color plates, with descriptive tissue guards, and seventy drawings in black and white.Publisher's full vellum over boards pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine, top edge gilt, others uncut. Upper corner of front board expertly straightened, light soiling/marking to spine and back cover. Overall a very good copy of a hard to find title. Housed in a fleece-lined, blue cloth slipcase."The Romance of King Arthur (1917) was another wartime book, commissioned, like the Allies' Fairy Book, to reflect - and cash in upon - the nations' mood of patriotism,and martial endevour. In preparing for the commission, Rackham turned to his own copy of Beardsley's Morte D'Arthur and, following the pattern of the Beardsley version, drew square and rectangular chapter heardings to be set at irregular intervals up and down the page. As in Beardsley, these have a stark black and white appearance, though Rackham cannot resist the occasional wryly humorous touch such as a barking dog or a jester's head. The closest Rackham comes to Beardsley, however, is in his illustration of Sangreal, a flaming lidded chalice carried by an attenuated golden-haired white-robed maiden. This homage to Aubrey is based closely on Beardsley's own angel in The Achieving of the Sangreal, the frontispiece to Volume Two of Morte D'Arthur."(James Hamilton. Arthur Rackham. A Biography. pp.111-112).Latimore and Haskell, p. 47. Riall, p. 130.

        A PRINCESS OF MARS

      A. C. McClurg & Co., Chicago 1917 - Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xii [xiii-xvi] 1-326 [327] [328: blank], five inserted plates with illustrations by Frank E. Schoonover, original dark brown cloth, front and spine panels stamped in orange. The first book of the Mars series. Burroughs' first published story (written in 1911) and his only story to originally appear under a pseudonym. The story first appeared under the byline "Norman Bean" (he had intended that pen name be "Normal Bean") as a six-part serial "Under the Moons of Mars" in a Munsey magazine, THE ALL-STORY, February-July 1912. This novel preceded the first publication of "Tarzan of the Apes," published in the October 1912 issue of THE ALL-STORY. This popular novel inspired numerous writers and influenced the space faring sword and raygun stories as well as influencing scientists and filmakers. ".this pioneering account of John Carter's magical transmission to the the planet Mars and his subsequent baroque adventures established a new template for fiction set on other planets, developing such imaginative spaces as arenas for exuberantly uninhibited tales of exotic derring-do . Although it hardly qualifies as science-based speculative fiction, Burroughs's account of Barsoom was enormously influential in pulp SF, standing at the head of a rich subgenre of 'planetary romances' whose evolution was carried forward by such writers as C. L. Moore, Leigh Brackett, and Ray Bradbury." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-194. Made into a feature film in 2012 as "John Carter."
