         Ardours and Endurances

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company Publishers, [1918] - Octavo. Original blue boards, titles gilt to spine and imprint to front. Spine dulled, a few faint marks to cloth, frontispiece creased and torn by the author himself (and reattached by the owner with note), otherwise sound and internally clean, a very good copy. Photographic portrait frontispiece. First US edition, first printing, fulsomely inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper with an eight-line poetic quotation from "The Full Heart" (printed p. 65). From the library of Lois Walcott Kellogg (1894–1944), wealthy heiress to the Charles P. Kellogg manufacturing fortune through her mother Emma Lois Kellogg, and daughter of Supreme Court Justice Pierrepont Isham. The portrait frontispiece has been torn out and scrunched up by the poet, latterly reattached with the annotation in Kellogg's hand to the blank recto, "Torn out by R.N. at Morristown in a fit of disgust – quite affected!", and additionally teasingly annotated the handsome portrait itself "'The Flapper's Delight'". The rear endpapers bear in pencil (likely in Nichols's hand) a pointedly modernist reading list comprising works by D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster, Dorothy Richardson, and Virginia Woolf. Kellogg has also noted beneath that these are "books recommended by R.N." and notes that in the text, of the "marginal notes three are by R.N. while reading aloud" (see pp. 113–14). Kellogg hosted Nichols in Morristown, New Jersey, just after the end of the First World War. Laid-in are the first two pages of an incomplete autograph letter from Lois Kellogg, dated December 1918, which relate to her mother the experience of having the poet to stay: "The poet is returning after tea and I'll have time for a line to you. It has been a most perfect week-end! Can you imagine a timid, erratic, quite conceited, shell-shocked poet being drawn out and coaxed along by Aunt Jane with her wonderful tact and humour and that irresistible chuckle? Of course Robert Nichols is nothing but a very young & very self-centred but exceedingly brilliant and charming human – he takes all kinds of 'poetic-licence'. The way American ovation is going to his silly young head makes me weep – he is such a nice boy and a really gifted writer. The sooner he goes back to England the better, for now his head and his purse are swelling (he has become quite commercially interested in the Hearst Magazine for which he is this minute attempting to finish a clever but purely popular article) and after he has made enough money off us he will go back home to his sick father and his wounded brother and all the rest of them too tired of war to make such a fuss over him and perhaps he may get sobered down a bit". There is also a contemporary photograph laid-in showing Nichols posing with a young girl. This US edition, published in the year after the UK first, includes a new introduction by Nichols. Hayward 333 (UK edition); Reilly p.236. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

         Poems. Now first published edited with notes by Robert Bridges Poet Laureate.

      London: Humphrey Milford, 1918 - Octavo. Original cream cloth-backed blue boards, spine lettered in black on a paper label. With the original glassine. Gift inscription to front pastedown. Trivial nicks to tail of spine, some minor foxing within, but an excellent copy, with the fragile glassine only a little creased and bearing a few tiny chips at the edges. Superb. With 2 photogravure portraits and 2 double-page plates. First edition, with the rare glassine jacket, one of 750 copies only, of which the bibliography states 50 were given away prior to publication (it took until 1928 to sell them all). Trade copies were issued in a plain paper jacket priced at 12s. 6d., but this original unpriced glassine may well designate one of the 50 copies issued prior to sale. Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) published very few poems in his lifetime and destroyed many of his early writings in a crisis of faith – he had been received into the Roman Catholic faith by Cardinal Newman himself in 1866, and in 1868 made a bonfire of his juvenilia. It was only decades after his death that this "sensitive, handsome, and almost complete small edition" (ODNB), collected and largely designed by Hopkins's friend and admirer Robert Bridges, was published. Contemporary reviews were mixed though some were stridently positive, such as Theodore Maynard: "A shy mid-Victorian priest, writing while Tennyson, Swinburne and Patmore led their various schools, was more modern than the most freakish modern would dare to be. He is the last word in technical development". Sales were slow and it had only just sold out by 1930, when "a second edition was called for by the poetry public who were demanding new, difficult poetic voices. Advocated especially by I. A. Richards, F. R. Leavis, William Empson, and Michael Roberts, so that his poems appeared in general and modernistic anthologies, followed by university and school syllabuses, Hopkins had suddenly become a popular modern poet". Notwithstanding the long time coming, this single volume now ranks as one of the most important in influential poetry collections published in the century. Dunne A38; Hayward 335.

         Précieux manuscrit + Calligrammes Edition originale dans une reliure coffret d'artiste

      mercure de France 1918 - Dans une présentation scénographique sous coffret d'artiste, Manuscrit d'Apollinaire, Edition originale de Calligrammes. Précieux manuscrit de premier jet de Guillaume Apollinaire écrit sur le front de la guerre "au bois des butes" APOLLINAIRE Guillaume. Poème autographe manuscrit de dix vers dont deux rayés écrit au front de la Guerre de 14, au Bois des Buttes en 1916 sur une demi-page in-12 quadrillée : En première page : "La Tranchée en première ligne Les éléphants des pare-éclats (Qui garde le mystère insigne) (Du long regard des guetteurs las) Une girouette maligne Le long regard des guetteurs las Qui veillent le silence insigne Et lorsque l'Officier de quart Visite le poste d'écoute La sentinelle au long regard." Au dos, cinq mots manuscrits également de la main d'Apollinaire, certains illisibles "pelles, pioche .". A côté, écrit de la main de Jacqueline G.APOLLINAIRE : "Ce petit poème de G. APOLLINAIRE, écrit au Front, Bois des Buttes, en 1916". Ces quelques vers, modifiés en partie, ont été repris dans CALLIGRAMES "Du coton dans les oreilles". page 172 de l'édition originale Provenances : Jacqueline G. Apollinaire Jacqueline Kolb épouse de Guillaume Apollinaire le 2 mai 1918. Elle offre ce poème manuscrit à son médecin, Jacqueline G. Apollinaire avait également offert à ce médecin les œuvres complètes d’Apollinaire La pléiade édition de 1959 avec cet envoi : « heureuse de voir entre vos mains ce livre que j’aime, vivez longtemps cher Docteur, pour la lumière des autres ! Signé Jacqueline G .Apollinaire. Jacqueline Apollinaire est décédée en 1967. (La librairie en fait l'acquisition lors de la mise à la vente par les descendants de ce médecin) Les manuscrits d'Apollinaires de premier jet en main privé sont bien évidemment d'une insigne rareté. Apollinaire Guillaume Calligrammes Edition originale 15 avril 1918 parfaite condition. Calligrammes Paris Mercure de France 1918 - 205 pages Broché. Très bel exemplaire de l'édition originale avec l'achevé d'imprimer à la date du 15 avril 1918. Cet exemplaire est d'une grande pureté avec un papier non brulé, les caractères bien frappés d'imprimerie ayant laissés leur reliefs bien marqués. Présentation scénographique sous coffret d'artiste grand luxe à plusieurs niveaux, conception et réalisation Julie Auzillon. Le contenu du coffret n'est pas visible immédiatement. Il faut manipuler l'objet, se saisir de chaque élément, pour l'appréhender pleinement et découvrir ce qu'il renferme. Le lecteur est invité à ce rituel de consultation, comme une introduction visuelle et tactile à l'ouvrage. Au premier coup d'œil, on découvre un imposant volume, recouvert d'un papier japonais gris chiné. Deux volets aimantés, sur lesquels dansent les lettres du titre nous invitent à ouvrir la boîte. Ces volets se déploient alors comme deux plateaux de consultation et rendent visible le contenu : une feuille de papier. Cette précieuse feuille est glissée entre deux plaques de plexiglas. On peut s'en saisir pour la regarder de près, face arrière, en transparence. Elle est fabriquée à la main par Julie Auzillon, selon la technique traditionnelle japonaise, avec la fibre de kozo. La composition graphique abstraite en noir et blanc est réalisée lors de la fabrication et non pas imprimée. Ainsi, il s'agit "juste d'une feuille de papier". Comme Apollinaire dessine avec les lettres, suscitant l'imagination visuelle, on peut imaginer des formes dans les courbes abstraites du papier. Sous cet élément, on découvre l'édition originale de Calligrammes, tel un tableau visuel magnifié par un cadre de papier japonais violet. De part et d'autre, des poignées de papier permettent de le retirer facilement de son logement pour le consulter. C'est alors que sous l'ouvrage, tout au fond, dans un dernier compartiment, métaphore doublement symbolique du trésor caché, et de la profonde tranchée de 1914 dans laquelle il a été écrit, nos yeux se posent sur une très précieuse feuille de papier, glissée [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Ardours and Endurances

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company Publishers,, [1918]. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles gilt to spine and imprint to front. Photographic portrait frontispiece. Spine dulled, a few faint marks to cloth, frontispiece creased and torn by the author himself (and reattached by the owner with note), otherwise sound and internally clean, a very good copy. First US edition, first printing, fulsomely inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper with an eight-line poetic quotation from "The Full Heart" (printed p. 65). From the library of Lois Walcott Kellogg (1894–1944), wealthy heiress to the Charles P. Kellogg manufacturing fortune through her mother Emma Lois Kellogg, and daughter of Supreme Court Justice Pierrepont Isham. The portrait frontispiece has been torn out and scrunched up by the poet, latterly reattached with the annotation in Kellogg's hand to the blank recto, "Torn out by R.N. at Morristown in a fit of disgust – quite affected!", and additionally teasingly annotated the handsome portrait itself "'The Flapper's Delight'". The rear endpapers bear in pencil (likely in Nichols's hand) a pointedly modernist reading list comprising works by D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster, Dorothy Richardson, and Virginia Woolf. Kellogg has also noted beneath that these are "books recommended by R.N." and notes that in the text, of the "marginal notes three are by R.N. while reading aloud" (see pp. 113–14). Kellogg hosted Nichols in Morristown, New Jersey, just after the end of the First World War. Laid-in are the first two pages of an incomplete autograph letter from Lois Kellogg, dated December 1918, which relate to her mother the experience of having the poet to stay: "The poet is returning after tea and I'll have time for a line to you. It has been a most perfect week-end!... Can you imagine a timid, erratic, quite conceited, shell-shocked poet being drawn out and coaxed along by Aunt Jane with her wonderful tact and humour and that irresistible chuckle? Of course Robert Nichols is nothing but a very young & very self-centred but exceedingly brilliant and charming human – he takes all kinds of 'poetic-licence'... The way American ovation is going to his silly young head makes me weep – he is such a nice boy and a really gifted writer. The sooner he goes back to England the better, for now his head and his purse are swelling (he has become quite commercially interested in the Hearst Magazine for which he is this minute attempting to finish a clever but purely popular article) and after he has made enough money off us he will go back home to his sick father and his wounded brother and all the rest of them too tired of war to make such a fuss over him and perhaps he may get sobered down a bit". There is also a contemporary photograph laid-in showing Nichols posing with a young girl. This US edition, published in the year after the UK first, includes a new introduction by Nichols.

         World War One photograph album kept by a member of the 502nd U. S. Army Ambulance Service (U.S.A.A.S)

      France, 1918. Album. Very good. This 11" x 7" leather album contains approximately 125 b/w photographs ranging in size from 2.5" x 1.75" to 5.74" x 8". Almost all of the photos are attached with corner mounts and can be removed. About 30 of the photos show drivers posing alongside their "cars" (ambulances); all but four or five have been autographed. The other images are of scenes and equipment; almost all of these have been captioned on the reverse. Three pieces of ephemera are included: a leave slip, and two troop ship berthing assignments (presumably one from the trip over and one from the return). Highlights include: 30 or so ambulance and driver photos along with a group photo of the entire section; Section members working on and cleaning their vehicles; German prisoners, captured German artillery, and a downed German airplane; The temporary grave of Charlie Waterhouse (presumably a member of the section); Several drivers posing with an ambulance that had been damaged by shrapnel; Evacuating gas attack casualties; and Loading a blanket covered cadaver into the back of an ambulance as most of the detachment watches at attention (probably a member of the section, possibly Charlie Waterhouse, as military ambulances are not used to transport the dead.). The 502nd was the second of three ambulance sections raised from members of Philadelpia's Stoneman's Fellowship, a philanthropic, fraternal organization that provided first aid and ambulance service. Its commander was 1st Lt. Donald Hathaway (the signer of Schubert's leave slip). The 502nd arrived in France and served in the defense of the Aisne River, at Chateau-Thierry, the Aisne-Marne offensive, the Meuse-Argonne offensive, and he Woevre Sector offensive, supporting the 2nd, 26th, 28th, 42nd, and 79th Divisions at various times. Three members of the section were killed during the war and 16 were wounded. Following the Armistice, the 502nd served in occupied Germany and Strasbourg until it returned home in May, 1919.

         Figure Studies] "In Central Park." [Manhattan]1918.

      Manhattan, New York: 1918 - Original pencil drawing. Signed and dated in the image. Titled and dated on the support sheet. 10 x 13.9 inches. Clean one inch tear not affecting the imageProvenance: Part of a portfolio of original works given to the collector Natalie Williams on June 1, 1937 by Wall. Natalie Williams, was the sister-in-law of the Texas collector N.C. Matthewson of Marshall, Texas, and both were owners of the Made-Rite Company. She was a patroness of artists and an art donor to Texas A & M University.Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region.Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson.Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

         Über Gravitationswellen" in Preußische Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin, Sitzungsberichte 1918, pp. 154-167

      Akademie der Wissenschaften, Berlin 1918 - 1918 FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF EINSTEIN'S MOST SUBSTANTIAL PAPER ON GRAVITATIONAL WAVES, THE FIRST WITHOUT ERRORS & THE FIRST IN WHICH HE CORRECTLY PREDICTS THE EXISTENCE OF GRAVITATIONAL WAVES & THEIR EFFECT (Steinicke, Einstein, AN 326 7, 2005). "The existence of gravitational waves is one of the greatest predictions of general relativity" (Calaprice). In 1916, Einstein "presented the tools of tensor analysis that allowed him to derive the general field equations for gravity as a property of non-Euclidian spacetime" (Calaprice, Einstein Almanac, 48). He then used "a simplified version of his field equations? to predict the existence of gravitational waves" (Wenner: History of Science). Though the paper was unquestionably seminal, it contained serious flaws and errors in calculation. The translation of the title of the 1916 paper all but gives away the problem: "Approximate integration of the field equations of gravity". Einstein said that he solved the field equations approximately because he considered small deviations from the exact solutions something you would do in order to treat fluctuations. By his 1918 paper, the one offered here, Einstein understood that those fluctuations were in fact themselves the gravitational waves. In this 1918 paper, Einstein corrects the errors in his 1916 paper, deriving for the first time his famous 'quadrupole fomula' determining that quadrupole sources (but not monopole or dipole sources) could radiate gravitational waves, and - significantly -- also calculating the energy carried by gravitational waves. Einstein begins the 1918 paper honestly: "? since my exposition of the subject-matter at that time was not sufficiently transparent and furthermore blemished by a regrettable error in calculation, I have to return to the matter here one more time (Einstein, 154). He goes on to make clear that "One of the defining characteristics of gravitational waves is that it does not have a "dipole" character as the electromagnetic radiation (for example, light). In dipole radiation, the signal you "see" is due to charges moving to and fro. But gravitational waves are not like that (that is, being due to mass densities moving back and forth)" (Adami, Einstein's Struggles with Gravitational Waves, 2017). Rather than his 1916 approach, Einstein here derives the quadrupole formula for gravitational radiation by solving linearize field equations with a source term, a solution suggesting that the wave amplitude is proportional to the second time derivative of the quadrupole moment of the source - a result that, as long as the wavelength is much longer than the source size 'R', is entirely accurate for all sources. Einstein had found that "the radiation must have a quadrupole moment, so that density is compressed in one direction, and expanded in the orthogonal directions. It is precisely this feature of the radiation that decades later would confirm Einstein's prediction of the existence of gravitational waves. While it remains a source of contention, some historians of science have argued that given the errors in the 1916 paper, 1918, rather than 1916, should be celebrated as the year Einstein discovered gravitational waves. It was, after all, the first year he got it right. CONDITION & DETAILS: Berlin: Akademie der Wissenschaften.

         LES MAMELLES DE TIRESIAS. Drame surréaliste en deux actes et un prologue.

      Edition SIC, Paris 1918 - EDITION ORIGINALE illustrée de 7 compositions hors texte de Serge Férat dont le frontispice repris en couverture. Partitions musicales de Germaine Albert-Birot. Exemplaire du tirage courant. ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ C'est dans le texte de présentation de cette pièce que fut employé pour la première fois par Apollinaire le terme surréalisme : " Quand l'homme a voulu imiter la marche, il a crée la roue qui ne ressemble pas à une jambe. Il a fait du surréalisme sans le savoir". Donnée pour la première fois le 24 juin 1917, la pièce fit scandale : les cubistes virent dans les décors et costumes de Serge Férat une caricature de leur travail, et Apollinaire fut accusé d'irrévérence pour son texte sur le thème très sérieux de la repopulation. Le volume fut imprimé en janvier 1918 par Levé à Paris, maison qui tirait également la revue de Pierre Albert Birot SIC dont le numéro de février présente le livre et en reproduit trois illustrations. > Bon exemplaire en bel état, sans rousseurs [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
