London, Charmian (Mrs. Jack London)
New York: Macmillan, 1917. Fine in dust jacket in original very good box. First edition. Our Hawaii Charmian London (Mrs. Jack London) New York: Macmillan, 1917 Hardcover in publishers 0riginal blue cloth with cover design and lettering in gilt; xiv, 345 pages with four pages ads at rear; frontispiece and 15 full-page plates from photographs, colored map. First printing of the first edition of Charmian's second book (after "Log of the Snark"). This book is in very fine condition in the original dust jacket that came with this book when published in 1917 in the original publisher's box. The dust jacket is in very good condition with some closed tears, the largest being at the upper left corner of the rear panel of the dust jacket, about one inch. Some corner wear also, but the jacket is far above what is encountered when a dust jacket does show up on this book. The box is very good with some wear and seam splits and corner and edge wear from being 100 years old. That this box survived at all intact is a wonder. One long side of the box has an edge crack as shown. The box is sturdy but fragile. This book is extremely uncommon to encounter in the publisher's box. Few have survived. Those that have survived will be in poor boxes. A couple of factors would be responsible for such scarcity: World War where the market for fiction books was damaged, the fragile nature of the box, as most people threw away dust jackets as Jack London once wrote to his public (let the true beauty of book show) and a low printing of the book. Two original photos of Jack and Charmian in very good condi … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRETON André
1917. Fine. circa 1917-1918, 22,3x27,6, une feuille sous chemise et étui. - A remarkable autobiographical poem by André Breton dedicated to Guillaume Apolinnaire, entitled ""December"", [] in black ink on laid paper, composed in 1915. Our manuscript was written between March 1917 and the beginning of 1918 . An essential poem of the pre-Dadaist contemporary of the author, it is part of a coherent set of seven manuscript poems by Breton (referred to as Coll.X. in André Breton's Complete Works , Volume I of La Library of the Pleiades, Gallimard, 1988, 1071). These poems, from his youthful writing, are carefully calligraphed in black ink on watermarked laid paper. This set was sent to his circle of friends and writers, including Valery, Apollinaire, Theodore Fraenkel, and his brother André Paris. It was later published in his first collection, Mont de Piété , which appeared in June 1919 at the publishing house Au sans Pareil, newly founded by his friend Rene Hilsum. The exact dating of this set of autograph poems is determined by the writing of the last poem of the collection (""André Derain""), composed March 24, 1917, which offers a terminus post quem absolute. In addition, an older version of the poem ""Age"", dedicated to Leon-Paul Fargue, appears in our collection under its original name ""Poème"". Dated by the author of February 19, 1916 - the day of his twenty years - and created 10 days earlier according to his correspondence, it was renamed and reworked only for its publication in July 1918 in The Three Roses . In all likelihood prior to the publication of this last … [Click Below for Full Description]

SATIE Erik & AURIC Georges & DUREY Louis & HONEGGER Arthur & COCTEAU Jean & APOLLINAIRE Guillaume
Paris: Lyre et Palette, 1917. Fine. Lyre et Palette, Paris 1917, 24x32,5cm, broché. - Invitation program for the piano concert given on 6 June 1917 by Erik Satie, Georges Auric, Louis Durey and Arthur Honegger Lyre et Palette, Paris 1917, 24 x 32,5 cm, original wrappers Rare first edition of the original invitation programme for the very first concert of the future ""Groupe des Six,"" given on 6 June 1917. This exceptional document announces the first avant-garde concert produced in the workshop of the Swiss painter Emile Lejeune at number 6 on Rue Huyghens, in Montparnasse, with works by Erik Satie, Louis Durey, Georges Auric, and poems by Jean Cocteau and Guillaume Apollinaire. It was the first of a long series of memorable productions that would follow until 1920, sometimes presented under the title ""Société Lyre et palettes,"" combining music, poetry readings and modern painting exhibitions (of Modigliani, Picasso, Matisse or even Kisling). The musical pieces were performed by their young composers and Erik Satie himself, who had just celebrated success with Parade, composed with Jean Cocteau and Picasso. This concert gave Satie the idea of forming this group of composers and he called them ""Les Nouveaux jeunes"" - the beginnings of the future ""Groupe des Six,"" formed in 1920 by the poet Jean Cocteau. Small tears and signs of folding on the margins of the programme, a missing segment at the top of the first board. This four-part concert is comprised as follows: ""Pièce en trio"" by Georges Auric, Hélène Jourdan-Morhange and Félix Delgrange; ""Carillons"" by L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Carl Van Vechten
New York: 1917. un volume in-12, cartonnage éditeur. Édition originale, publiée sans dust jacket. Envoi a. s. : Pour Monsieur Erik Satie, with the profound admiration of the author, Carl Van Vechten. Dans Interpreters and Interpretations, Vechten a consacré une étude amusante à Erik Satie (pp. 243-266) - mêlant quelques mots français à l'anglais. Fumiste - peut-être - mais il a fait quelque chose. Peut-être le premier article international à la gloire du musicien... Selon son biographe Edward White, Carl Van Vechten (1880- 1964) fut une des figures les plus exceptionnelles de la culture américaine de la première moitié du XXème siècle. Auteur de romans satiriques admirés par F. Scott Fitzgerald ou Sinclair Lewis, reporter culturel au New-York Times, spécialiste du théâtre moderne, de la musique et de la danse contemporaines, Van Vechten était aussi le pygmalion de la milliardaire Mabel Dodge pour l'organisation de ses sélectes soirées artistiques de l'Armory Show des années 1913-1920. On y faisait goûter l'art moderne aux Américains en leur montrant un Nu descendant l'escalier en leur jouant des mesures du Sacre du printemps. Très lié avec Gertrude Stein, Vechten s'occupa de promouvoir son œuvre outre-Atlantique - Gertrude Stein en fera son exécuteur testamentaire. Dans les années 30, le critique d'art devint un photographe portraitiste renommé, admiré par Edward Steichen et Man Ray. C'est d'ailleurs pour cette activité que Vechten est célèbre aujourd'hui. Il a laissé nombre d'images iconiques des artistes et acteurs qu'il fréquenta, Anna May Wong, le dramaturge Eugène O'Ne … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tolstoy, Leo. (Count Lyof N Tolstoi)
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1917. works of Leo Tolstoy. Octavo, six volumes, bound in three quarters morocco, gilt titles and gilt ruling to the spine, top edge gilt. In very good condition. Widely considered the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the human spirit. Tolstoy’s genius is seen clearly in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle—all of them fully realized and equally memorable. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual’s place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as the Iliad: "To read him . . . is to find one’s way home . . . to everything within us that is fundamental and sane." "There remains the greatest of all novelists--for what else can we call the author of War and Peace" (Virginia Woolf). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Some soiling to flyleaves. Octavo 251 pp "Margaret Skinnider was born in Scotland around 1893. Her mother was Scottish and her father was originally from Co. Monaghan. She trained as a teacher in Glasgow and taught mathematics there until 1916, when she resigned to take part in the Easter Rising in Dublin. She also worked in the campaign for women's suffrage and was a member of the Women's Social and Political Union in Scotland.

Rackham, Arthur
South Hampstead [London], 1917. No binding. Near fine. Rackham, Arthur. Original sketch printed to recto only, dimensions: about 7" by 4.5" A wonderful original drawing by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939), done in simple, flowing lines, depicting a Civil War-era soldier carrying a flag which seems to be flowing in the breeze; beneath which Mr. Rackham wrote two lines from the poem "John Brown's Body", thus: "John Brown's body lies a-mouldering / in the grave / BUT HIS SOUL GOES MARCHING ON". Beneath is written "with kindest regards [space] Arthur Rackham". The sketch is on letterhead with the printed address of 16, Chalcot Gardens, South Hampstead N.W., with the numeral "3" written next to the address, and the date writted above of "3.4.17" - since Mr. Rackham presumably used the British convention for dating, we assume this means "April 3, 1917". Arthur Rackham married in July of 1903, and although they began their life together at another address (3, Primrose Hill Studios), they "shortly" moved to the "attractive, unusual, high-gabled house" at 16, Chalcot Gardens, which had two studios - one for Mrs. Rackham, an artist in her own right, and another for Arthur Rackham. In 1917 Arthur Rackham was 50 years old and was known as "the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period" (n.b., from "Arthur Rackham, His Life and Work", by Derek Hudson), having had many of his best-known illustrations already published, including those in "Peter Pan" and "Alice in Wonderland"; in 1917 his illustrated version of "The Romance of King Arthur" would be published.

The first printing, as is this copy, is differentiated from the later printings by the absence of the dedication-page to Hulbert Burroughs. E.R.

All subsequent McClurg printings have the dedication page. Jack metamorphizes into Korak the Killer after moving into the African jungle. Heins ST-1; Zeuschner 485.

1917. Complete! Pages all intact with good color. Bindings very good. Some cover flaws--see photos. Price reduced! This is a rare, rare antiquarian find for the vintage book collector. I don't even see single volumes listed frequently, much less all 8 volumes. 1917 was THE VERY FIRST YEAR this iconic encyclopedia was was published. At first, it was known simply as The World Book; the term Encyclopedia was added later. The first publisher was the Hanson-Roach-Fowler Company. The first editor was Michael Vincent O'Shea, a prolific writer and professor of English at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. I actually purchased these over 40 years ago while living in Madison, and always wondered if there was some connection there. World Book Encyclopedia is still being produced and in 2017 celebrated it's 100th anniversary! The pages have good color and are not yellowed; there aren't tears or bent pages. There is some discoloration and wear on the covers; some more than others. A couple of the spines are missing small amount of cover material, but you can see from the photos it isn't extensive. There is one edition for which the color appears to be different; I don't know why this is the case. There are lots of black and white photographic plates and drawings, some some colorized plates and drawings; even some fold-out illustrations. The subject matter and topics are vintage early-20th century. Theodore Roosevelt was president; World War I was raging; modern medicine was in its infancy and penicillin had not yet been discovered. The auto and biplane were new. The United States C … [Click Below for Full Description]

New York: Aroysgegeben fun M. Yankevich, 1917. First American Yiddish edition. Hardcover. g- to vg-. Ocatvo. 7 3/4x 5 1/2". 94pp. Half black pebbled cloth over burgundy paper boards, with hand-painted gilt lettering on the front cover. The original illustrated blue wrappers with black lettering, featuring a photo-portrait of Herzl bounded by the American and "Zionist" flags, are bound in. This scarce publication is believed to be the very first Yiddish-language edition of Theodor Herzl's seminal work "Der Judenstaat", to have been published in America. It is also the first fully accurate, literal and unabridged Yiddish translation to have been published. There is no publication date listed, but an original sale price of 30 cents is given. Includes a custom half-title page handwritten in gilt lettering preceding the bound in wrappers. In this foundational Zionist work, which has become among the most important and significant works in modern Jewish history, Herzl famously advocates for the creation of a Jewish state, preferable in Palestine, as a means to overcome anti-Semitism and persecution. This edition which is believed to have been published circa 1917, was printed in multiple U.S. cities including Philadelphia, Boston and New York, all at around the same time, by various different Yiddish-language publishers, each the same text and blue wrappers. In the case of New York, at least two different publishers are known to have released this edition, including Abba Katzenellenbogen (16 copies on OCLC), and the scarcer M.

Wrappers, the front cover blind-embossed with the logo of Wilhelmwerk. The graphic designers and advertising directors Carl Ernst Hinkefuss (1881-1970) and Wilhelm Deffke (1887-1950) were among the most innovative figures to emerge in Germany in the period around the first World War. Collaborators in the years 1915 to 1920 at their partnership, Wilhelmwerk, they focused especially on trademark and branding design, developing new ideas and styles for the corporate logo that remain influential today, exemplified in their book “Handelsmarken und Fabrikzeichen” of 1917. Cover slightly dusty, back browned in places. Overall, beautiful copy, inside clean and fresh. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

McManus, Geo.
The Saalfield Publishing Co, 1917. [moderate edgewear to covers, internally Fine except for the expected and inevitable age-toning to the pages]. (cartoon strips and panels) A remarkably well-preserved example of this rare vintage coloring book (OCLC reports only four library holdings), containing mostly undated reprints of George McManus's newspaper comic strip, "The Newlyweds," generally considered the first American "family" strip. Created by the then 20-year-old McManus for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World in 1904, the strip ran for twelve years, at various times as both a daily and Sunday feature; when McManus left the World for the New York American (a Hearst paper), he began a new strip called "Their Only Child" ("a perfect clone," in the words of one historian), while "The Newlyweds" continued in the World, drawn by Albert George Carmichael. Dating the strips in the book would be a major research task, not helped by the mishmash of dates provided: the 1917 date is on the front cover; the title page reads: "Copyrighted 1907 by the Press Publishing Co."; and several of the individual color strips bear a 1916 copyright date, also credited to the "Press Publishing Co. (N.Y. World)." All appear to all be Sunday strips, although some are in B&W (for "coloring-in" purposes, I suppose) and others in color, and despite McManus's sole by-line on the title page, Carmichael's work is also well-represented. (On quite a few, either McManus's or Carmichael's signature is visible; generally speaking, the color versions appear to be by Carmichael and the B&W ones by McManus.)
