        Art, its principles and practice as applied to modern life, 20 lectures

      New York: Ross Studios, 1917. Book. Very Good. Soft cover. 1st Edition. Rare and complete collection of Parson's monumental lecture series, 1st edn, softcover, some wear and soiling to paper cover booklets (occasional creasing),100 illustrations mentioned are not included here for some unknown reason (separate folio?). Discussions over architecture, interior decoration, period furnishings in twenty listed parts, 522pps. Wikipedia: Frank Alvah Parsons was born April 1, 1866 in Chesterfield, Massachusetts. In 1901, after a period of European travel, Parsons moved to New York City where he pursued a degree in Art Education from Columbia University, graduating in 1905. He began teaching at the New York School of Art (later Parsons The New School for Design) during the 1904-1905 academic year. At that time, the New York School of Art was primarily an institution for the instruction of fine arts. Parsons became co-manager of the school in 1907, and in 1911, became the school's director/president. Innovations Parsons introduced include the addition of departments for costume design, interior decoration, and commercial illustration (these departments would eventually become known as Fashion Design, Interior Design, and Graphic Design, respectively). Parsons reincorporated the school as the New York School of Fine and Applied Art in 1911. In the public imagination, Parsons became inextricably linked to the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. Through relentless speaking engagements and print publicity undertaken on school's behalf as shown here, Parsons raised the institution's profile on an international level. He also found the time to serve as a mentor and guide to many students, including William MacDougal Odom and Van Day Truex, both of whom would later serve as presidents of the school. In addition to administering the New York School of Fine and Applied Art, Parsons continued teaching and often lectured at museums, universities, organizations, and private clubs throughout the United States and Europe. Sold as a lot.

        La Fonte. Antologia mensile d'avanguardia letteraria. Da anno I Â- n. 1. Catania 24 febbraio 1917 a anno I - n. 5/6 Catania 15 ottobre 1917.

      Stab. d'arti grafiche Scuderi, 1917. 6 nn. in 5 fasc., cm 27,5 x 21, pp. 68 (totali). Tutto il pubblicato (?) di questa rara rivista letteraria catanese diretta da Rodolfo Di Mattei.(Cfr. Bonuzzi, Le riviste italiane nell'ultima fase) Caratterizzata da una veste essenziale, raccoglieva una notevole varieta' di contributi letterari. Priva di presentazioni o programmi (compaiono pochissime note della redazione), apre il primo numero con un componimento di Lionello Fiumi (acquazzoni suburbani) . Questo fatto, unito alla presenza di componimenti di autori come Caioli e Marone (fondatore de la Diana), farebbero pensare a una certa vicinanza al neoliberismo, seppure la presenza di una brevissima lettera dal fronte di Marinetti (...ora il futurismo e' la guerra...), alcune poesie di Buzzi (Quei dell'olivo) e un lungo componimento di Carlo Carra', dimostrano un generale interesse anche per il futurismo. Il secondo numero presenta l'importante poema di Tristan Tzara, Circuit total par la lune et par la couleur, giunto probabilmente in Italia tramite Raimondi e pubblicato in seguito, nel 1918, sul n. 3 della rivista Dada (A.M. Ruta, Fughe e ritorni: presenze futuriste in Sicilia, p. 288).  Nello stesso numero, viene pubblicato anche un brano tratto da 'Le solitudini stellate' del poeta armeno Hrand Nazariantz nella traduzione di Mario Garea mentre un'altra poesia dello stesso autore verra' inserita nel n. 4 con la traduzione di G. P. Lucini. Nei numeri a seguire troviamo componimenti di Telesio Interlandi, Licenza ordinaria; Titta Rosa, Giardino decadente; Arabeschi sui tappeti; Filippo De Pisis, Marzo. Notte; Il segreto; Alberto Viviani, Breviario, Cecco Velluto; Giuseppe Villaroel, Oleografie, Serenata triste; Nicola Moscardelli, Gioielleria notturna... ITA

        183 photographs and real photo postcards of La Romana, Dominican Republic, and the 15th Marine Regiment, c. 1917

      Santo Domingo, R.D.: Fotografa Mañon, 1917. Very Good. 70 photographs and 113 real photo postcards of La Romana, Dominican Republic, c. 1917, removed from original album, which had been assembled by Russell G. Weiss (1906-1995) when he was a boy. In 1990 he and his wife, Grace Kurtz Weiss (1911-2000), looked through the album and wrote a statement about it that was attached to the inside of the front cover and which accompanies the photographs. His father, Paul Beers Weiss, was a pipe fitter for Central Romana Sugar Mill. Russ lived there for 7 or 8 years as a child and is the child seen in a few of the photographs. The city of La Romana was founded in 1897 as an oil town. After 1917 with the construction of a large sugar-mill the economy shifted to sugar production. The United States occupied the Dominican Republic from 1916 to 1924. The 15th Marine Regiment operated out of La Romana. Some Marines from that post joined a baseball club sponsored by the local sugar company, which played against other Dominican squads and occasionally against traveling teams from Puerto Rico. The photographs and real photo postcards offered here include many views of life in La Romana. Other locations shown include Castillo de San Jeronimo; Hiquey; Carcel de la Fortaleza; Quisqueya; Malecon in Santo Domingo; Higueral; Seibo; Port-au-Prince; the San Isidro Estate; the Receptoria in Santo Domingo; an exposition in Santiago, Cuba, and San Juan Hill; and the ruins of Columbus' palace and other ruins in Santo Domingo. There are also photos of the Marines stationed in La Romana, Santo Domingo, and Port-au-Prince; an amphibious plane; the sugar mill; and the port of Romana. The Marines are seen both in uniform and in casual situations including swimming, cave exploring, and playing baseball. There is one view captioned "Place Where Marines Were Ambushed." Produced variously by Fotografa Manon in Santo Domingo, R.D., and by a photographer attached to the Marines (identified as Hoenes, U.S.M.C.). Some have captions added by the photographer, others had typed captions in the albums which have been housed with the photographs, and other have no identification. In Very Good Condition: some of original black album paper remains on back of both photographs and real photo postcards, but does not cover any identifications because none were written on the backs; occasional light soiling on images. A remarkable collection documenting life in the Dominican Republic and the activities of the U.S.M.C. in and around the town of La Romana in the period 1916-1920.

        A Handbook of Arabia. Volume I: General. Volume II: Routes.

      London, H. M. Stationery Office (Frederick Hall, Oxford) and (vol. 2) Admiralty War Staff, Intelligence Division, [1916]-May 1917. - 8vo. (3)-708, (2) pp., XV pp. of plates. With four folding maps within pouch inside lower cover. 519, (3) pp., IX pp. of plates. Lacks the map, but with a different, supernumerary map within pouch inside lower cover. Modern (vol. 1) and original (vol. 2) blue cloth with giltstamped cover and spine titles (vol. 2 with closing fore-edge flap). Only edition of this rare, secret Naval Intelligence Handbook, compiled by D. G. Hogarth, Keeper of Antiquities at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (and close friend of T. E. Lawrence) for the British Admiralty's new Naval Intelligence Division, intended for the exclusive use of British officers operating on the Arabian Peninsula during the Great War. Although the information contained was classified as confidential, it could "in certain cases be communicated to persons in H.M. Service below the rank of commissioned officer", though officers exercising this power were warned to impart such data only with "due caution and reserve". As the introductory "Note" informs the reader, "The sources from which this work has been compiled include native information obtained since the outbreak of the war [.] Separate chapters are devoted to each of the great districts of Arabia [.] After the area of the territory under review has been defined, its physical character is described unter the subsections of Relief and Climate. Then follow social and political surveys of the district, the former usually arranged under the sub-headings of Population, Life and Appliances, Products and Trade, Currency, and Weights and Measurements, the latter describing the system of Government, Recent History, and Present Politics. The last section of such a chapter is purely geographical and is devoted to the Districts of the territory [.] In a composite chapter, such as that on the Gulf Coast, dealing with several independent territories, the same general arrangement, when practicable, has been followed for each area [.] The plates at the end of each volume have been chosen to illustrate the varieties of country which are characteristic of Arabia". The second volume is devoted "mainly to detailed routes, preceded by two chapters on methods of transport and lines of communication [.] Chapters have been incorporated on Meteorological Observations, Hygiene and Disease, and Vocabularies". All four maps of the first volume (Districts and Town; Orographical Features; Land Surface Features; Tribal Map) are present as called for; the "Key Map of Routes" in the second volume has been replaced by an orographical map of Palestine and Trans-Jordan (1933). While the first volume (I. D. 1128) has been rebound to style (lacking the half-title noting the confidential character of all information contained), the second volume (C. B. 405) is preserved in its original binding as issued, bearing also the copy number "Copy 117" in gilt on the upper cover. A Note of Confidentiality calls attention to "the penalties attaching to any infraction of the Offical Secrets Act". Stamps on flyleaf and pastedown trace its provenance to the Royal Central Asian Society, founded in 1901, and the book remained on the shelf of that Society's secretary when it was renamed the "Royal Society for Asian Affairs" in 1975. This ownership is cancelled in ballpoint, with a note "Sold to Mr. M. Graham" (i.e., Murray Graham, British collector and exploration agent in Arabia, d. 2008). Acquired from UK trade.

        Manuscript - Oil Claim Documents with Large Coloured Map of "Father of Trinidad Oil", Randolph Rust

      Trinidad, 1917. [Trinidad], 1917. Guayaguayare Oil Claim Documents involving "Trinidad's Father of Oil" Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust and two British companies. One (1) signed agreement for land purchase off Guayaguayare Bay 17 December 1917, and one (1) accompanying large colour survey plan of the parcels of land; together with one (1) signed letter rescinding the agreement in 1919. All three contained in the solicitor's original envelope annotated in manuscript. Documents are made in London; text is in English. Agreement: Qto. 3 pages, string-tied, featuring a ten-shilling revenue stamp, purchasing Directors' and Secretary's original signatures, and red seal. Map: Single leaf measuring approximately 47 x 41 cm, also signed by purchaser's Secretary, folded to fit the envelope. Very good, original condition. Guayaguayare Bay is prominent in the history of Trinidad's oil industry, being the site of the first commercially viable wells drilled in Trinidad, performed by Randolph Rust and Lee Lum in May 1902. Today it remains the primary center in the petroleum industry and is home to a significant portion of Trinidad and Tobago's gas and oil reserves. The present agreement, dated 17 December 1917, constitutes an agreement for the sale of land at Guayaguayare in Trinidad, the buyer being interested in drilling oil. The seller is Graham Wells & Co. Limited, the buyer Roper River Land & Minerals Co. The distribution of company shares is also outlined. The seller's Directors and Secretary have signed the agreement and the map, the latter of which delineates several plots of land for purchase along the bay, and also shows Trinidad leasehold regions. Interestingly, the purchaser is in fact entering into "a covenant with Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust - the original vendor of the said claims", so stated in Clause 2. An enclosed letter, dated 1 December 1919 states that the Roper River corporation withdrew from the agreement as they had not requested extraction rights in the allotted time frame. The company's interest in exploiting the region for oil had not waned, however, as evidence shows them pursuing an alternate method for staking a claim in Trinidad petrol. (Efforts made in 1918 for a take over of Trinidad Dominion Oil Ltd., by the Roper River Land and Mineral Co., are also revealed in a collection of documents held by The National Archives which contains original correspondence from the Colonial Board of Trade Office relating to Trinidad.) The accompanying large colour map of Guayaguayare Bay delineates 17 acres owned by Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust which formed part of the parcel intended for purchase by Roper River Land & Minerals Co.. It also shows land owned by Lee Lum, and other persons listed in the document. Trinidad's oil drilling pioneer Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust (1854-1930), known as "the father of the oil industry in Trinidad and Tobago," played a primary role in this transaction and is named several times. Herein Rust is guaranteed indemnity against all claims and demands, and also granted a fee of £1000 along with 500 shares and the title of Director in the purchasing company. Randolph Rust had been drilling for oil in the La Brea area since 1893. in Guayaguayare Rust discovered a generous 25 acres of land yielding pools of petroleum. At the same time oil was also discovered in the Guayaguayare region in 1895 by John Lee Lum who found seepage on his property and brought him a sample. Together Rust and Lee Lum founded the Guayaguyare Oil Company in 1902. Excerpts from the manuscript: [Article 1.] "The Vendor Company will if and when requested by the Purchaser Company grant or procure to be granted or assigned to the Purchaser Company certain prospecting or other rights and options... 'the said Claims'... in and over certain blocks of land at Guayaguayare in the Ward of Mayaro in the Island of Trinidad... indicated upon a plan marked C..." [Article 2.] "... the Purchaser Company which has a nominal capital of Two hundred and Fifty Thousand Pounds divided into Five hundred thousand shares of Ten Shillings each." "... enter into a covenant with Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust the original vendor of the said claims..." "... to indemnify the said Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust from and against all claims and demands in respect thereof..." "... to pay the said Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust the sum of One Thousand Pounds... payable by the Purchaser..." "...Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust is the registered holder of five hundred shares in the Purchaser Company be appointed a Director of the Purchaser Company..." End excerpts. London born Randolph Thomas Hammond Rust (1854-1930), known as "the father of the oil industry in Trinidad and Tobago," first arrived in Trinidad in 1881, then employed in banking. His adventurous disposition led him in a different direction however, and he was soon off to British Guiana, journeying up the Mazaruni and Essequibo rivers in search of gold. Unfortunately, he contracted blackwater fever in the jungle while opening up the goldfields, and subsequently returned to Trinidad. Also in 1881, he met an American by the name of Henry Trowbridge, with whom he founded the firm, Rust Trowbridge and Company, their headquarters situated on Almond Walk in Port of Spain. They were general commission agents, merchants insurance and shipping agents, importers and exporters and wholesale dealers in provisions. Randolph Rust's interest in oil was triggered by the development of the industry in the United States. He was also encouraged by the early explorations of Walter Darwent, who in 1866 had drilled the first well on the Aripero estate in Oropouche. In 1893 Randolph Rust began drilling for oil in the La Brea area. In 1895, oil was discovered at Aripero, oil leaking onto the forest floor from a pipe which was piercing the ground surface. Investigations discovered that this was the old well of Walter Darwent. In Guayaguayare, after a difficult journey from Port of Spain by train, horseback and corial paddling up the Pilote river, he discovered to his amazement, the astonishing sight of 25 acres of land comprising puddles of asphalt and pools of petroleum. At around the same time, Rust met John Lee Lum who owned the adjoining property at Guayaguayare, and who showed him a sample of oil that he had found there on his property. The two soon decided to join forces for oil exploration. They acquired the Aripero estate, and obtained a concession over some 50 square miles at Mayaro/Guayaguayare, the early efforts being financed mainly by Lee Lum. After five unproductive, heart-breaking years, Rust finally found financial support in Canada with the firm Hiram Walker and Sons of Walkerville, Ontario and the Oil Exploration Company of Canada was created. Operations commenced at Guayaguayare on 30th May 1902, the first well drilled and oil struck one month later on 2nd July. The following years, their endeavours were met with some success but innumerable setbacks, from shipping issues to inaccessibility of terrain, lack of a proper geological guide and insufficient financing. Undaunted and ever-faithful to Trinidad and his vision for the island's potential oil revenue, Ralph Rust is nonetheless revered as the first oil pioneer of Trinidad, and also respected as a sage businessman, Councilor, Mayor of its capital city, founder of the Scout movement, and commissioned officer of the Trinidad Light Infantry Volunteers, which he commanded for the duration of the first World War. Years after his death, his unfaltering faith has finally been vindicated, and his vision finally realized. Roper River Land and Minerals Co., Ltd. was registered March 15th, 1903, to acquire the undertakings of The Empire Goldfields, Ltd., and the British South-West African Land and Mining Co., Ltd., both acquisitions being completed in 1906. The consideration was £3,000 cash and 100,000 fully-paid shares. The company's Directors were H. T. Walker, A. Matheson, and D. G. Macfie. Its properties comprised concessions covering 6,234 square miles with mineral lights over 5,890 miles in the Roper River Country, Northern Territory of South Australia, and the Subusubu (Tomento) concession, area 3,750 acres, on the Ankobra River, 45 miles from Axim, Wassau district, Gold Coast Colony. By 1910 the Australian Concessions were forfeited by the Australian Government. An interest was also held in an expedition to Northern Nigeria. The authorized capital is £250,000, in 500,000 shares of 103 each; 259,157 shares are issued, 100,000 credited as fully paid and 159,157 issued credited as 7s. 3d. pa : d and 2s. called, making 9s. 3d. paid. Shareholders were offered one share credited as 7s. 3d. paid for every old fully-paid share held. In May, 1906, 399,950 shares credited a3 7s. 3d. paid were offered for subscription on behalf of the R. R. Syndicate, Ltd. (the vendors and promoters); the subscription of 160,000 was guaranteed by the vendors. Bankers: Parrs Bank, Ltd. Auditors: Carnahy, Harrower, Barham & Co, Solicitors: Mayo, Elder & Co.

Actively opposed to the first world war, Goldman and Berkman were arrested in July, 1917, and charged with conspiring against the draft. This document encompasses a legal brief calling for the charges to be dropped. Goldman and Berkman defended themselves in the trial however; though they did take up similar points of defense as that laid out by Weinberger in this self-published book. Weinberger (1888-1944) was the son of Hungarian immigrants. He obtained his law degree studying nights at New York University Law School while he worked during the day as a stenographer. He was admitted to the bar in 1908. A staunch believer in civil liberties, Weinberger defended many aliens, immigrants, anarchists, and other radicals, including Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, whom he believed had been deprived of their rights. He also developed an expertise in copyright law, representing many writers, including Eugene O'Neill. Subjects: World War, 1914-1918 - Draft resisters - United States. Trials (Conspiracy) - United States. Draft - United States.

        Autograph manuscript (unsigned).

      No place, undated [after 1917]. - Five 4to and one 8vo sheets. 4 1/5 pp. Rare manuscript, written entirely in Doyle's hand. At the head of the first sheet, it is entitled "General Outlines of first lecture". Doyle begins by discussing the fundamental import of the questions addressed by spiritualism in the western world: "This subject which we have met to consider is far the most important in the world. It is one which ultimately concerns the fate of every one of us. There is a certain natural impatience that so huge and engrossing a question should be raised at a time when so many mundane problems seek a solution, but there are two very good reasons for this / 1. Unless we get the spiritual lessons while still under the influence of war shock we may relapse into pre[-] war materialism. 2. These religious questions are at the base of all things, and no permanent reconstruction is possible until you get a permanent base. Therefore mundane problems really depend upon the spiritual ones. Let me say at once that I speak with all humility. It is true that I have studied the matter for 34 years, that I have had a wide personal experience of investigation and that I have some knowledge both of science and possibly of detection. But granted all that, I know how complex the matter is. I speak of my own experiences and my own conclusions and I give you my reasons for the faith - or I would rather say the knowledge - to which I have attained I appeal to you would I not be a stock and a stone if I were not convinced of spirit return - if I not know it - and if I did not devote all that is in me to getting other people to know it. Look at what it means. See how the shadow of death thins away until it is no longer a dark cloud but rather a sun-tinted haze. It is a grand support for a man who is in danger [.]". Doyle cites several examples, including: "There is immensely interesting dialogue, which is reported a verbatim by a stenographer, between Dr. Hodgson after his death, and his friend & collaborator Hyslop, who has now joined him, but was then alive. Mrs. Piper was the medium. Hodgson was using her mechanism, and was speaking direct to Hyslop, giving reference after reference to things between them which were unknown to Mrs. Piper [.] talking of his death he said 'It is delightful to go through the cool ethereal atmosphere [.] [of] this life and shake off the mortal body [.] It is all so much better than I anticipated'. He recommended prayer as an expansion of the soul [.]". - With deletions and corrections in Doyle's hand. Doyle publicly announced his belief in spiritualism, which was strengthened by his son's wartime death in 1917. He expended a great deal of time and money to advance spiritualism - often lecturing as part of his efforts in this regard. This lecture manuscript offers fascinating and profound insight into Doyle's thoughts on the matter to which he was so devoted. - Age-toning, fold wear, and file hole at upper left of each page, otherwise very good. Accompanied by letter from James Lowe certifying authenticity of the manuscript.

        Group of 23 pen-and-ink satirical cartoons relating to training camp life during the First World War

      1917 or 1918 1917 - The illustrations are done by a confident, proficient hand, with a balance of economy and detail. We assume an amateur did these drawings, but they could certainly pass for the work of a professional. The piquancy of the humor is somewhat blunted by our not knowing the officers who are being lampooned, but we can still appreciate the intended gentle levity and esprit, and additionally, the snapshots into the past. While the drawings are cartoons, the people depicted are recognizable types, and the imagery is generally vivid. Here one would scarcely have a sense of the perils that lie ahead for the recruits, and pranks, minor infractions and all around high jinks are very much the rule. The cards generally measure 112 by 138 mm, oblong, (a few are slightly smaller) and they were once mounted in an album, as evidenced by the abrasion the the center of each card's back. The cards are of a heavy stock, with ruled borders and a band of blindstamped veined lines providing something of a frame to each of the images.
