Muir, John
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1918. First edition of this collection of two dozen of Muir's essays documenting his travels throughout the American West between 1873 and 1902. Octavo, original gray cloth lettered in white, pictorial cover label, top edge gilt. Illustrated with 12 plates. Edited by William Frederic Bade. In fine condition. Laid in is an original manuscript leaf from Muir's "My First Summer in the Sierra" which reads, "...out their immense arms in what would seem most extravagant gestures, there is a majesty& repose about them that precludes all possibility of the grotesque, or even picturesque, in their general expression. The main branches..." In fine condition. Originally published in 1918, this brilliant collection of letters and magazine articles spans nearly thirty years of Muir's writing. Here is Muir caught in a snowstorm below the peak of Mount Shasta; interviewing the one remaining miner in a Nevada ghost town; bathing "clean as a saint" in the Great Salt Lake, and sparring with Mormon elders; exploring the forests of Puget Sound, and climbing Mount Rainier; peering into the Grand Canyon, "a collection of stone books covering thousands of miles of shelving, tier on tier." "Muir's writing has survived for a century because he was not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve. He didn't hunt or fish in the wilderness, sell trees or snag nuggets, and thus in a sense he has only been freshened for us by the passage of time" (Edward Hoagland). Kimes 351; BAL 14777.

[Ballets Russes] Diaghilev, Sergey Pavlovich. (1872–1929) [Pergolesi, Giovanni Battista. (1710–1736)] [Wassenaer, Count Unico Wilhelm van. (1692–1766)]
1918. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Bound collection of 6 concertinos for 4 violins, viola, cello, and basso continuo in score, copied from a manuscript at the Conservatoire de Paris, as prepared for and subsequently inscribed by Sergei Diaghilev. Long attributed to Italian Baroque composerÂPergolesi, these pieces are a famous case of reattribution within the canon of classical music, having been identified in recent decades as the work of the Dutch composer and statesman Count Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer. Half a century before this musicological consensus had been established, Diaghilev wrote his opinion in an inscription on the cover of the present manuscript (translated as follows from the French):"In my opinion, only the sixth (last) concertino was composed by Pergolesi. The others are of different authors who have nothing in common with him. I believe the autograph score does not exist, and that the copy at the Conservatoire de Paris is the sole known copy that belongs to . These works are found in no library in Italy. It is especially strange that they are not to be found in Naples. The quality of the music of these three concertini is very unequal, and one recognizes Pergolesi solely in the last part of the last concertino, which was composed wholly by him (the Adagio movement, recalling his serenades, etc.). S. Diaghilev, 1918."["À mon avis, il n'y a que le 6me (dernier) Concertino qui est composé par Pergolesi. Les autres sont de différents auteurs, qui n'ont rien de commun avec lui. Je crois que le partition autographe n' … [Click Below for Full Description]

New Jersey, 1918. Softcover. Near Fine. Small oblong octavo. 8.25" x 5.75". Cord tied tooled flexible suede wrappers. Small stains on the front wrap, else near fine, images are about fine. Scant but informative captioning. Approximately 107 gelatin sliver images. Various sizes, perhaps an average are 5" x 3", with some both larger and smaller. Several images captioned in Merchantville, New Jersey in 1915 identifying Archer Joe Moorhouse and others, mostly with horses; several over images are of shore resort Stone Harbor also dated in 1915 identifying Captain Ed Kelsal. Other images in 1918 feature soldiers and a military parade, possibly in Philadelphia. A few images in the middle are dated in 1912 and are noted as N.E. Maryland, possibly the Chesapeake Bay. It seems the majority are of a fairly rustic farm, possibly in Merchantville, featuring an elderly couple, with firearms at the ready or in evidence. The images are particularly well-composed, pleasing, and tidy album featuring southern New Jersey.

Planck, Max [Translated by H. T. Clarke and L. Silberstein]
Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1918. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE FIRST SEPARATE PRINTING OF THE ENGLISH VERSION OF MAX PLANCK'S FAMOUS NOBEL PRIZE ADDRESS. The wraps are housed in a custom clamshell case, gilt-lettered at the spine. Max Planck was awarded the 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics (received in 1919)"in recognition of the services he rendered to the advancement of Physics by his discovery of energy quanta" (Nobel Prize Committee). After studying the problems of radiation processes, Planck grew interested in the problem of the distribution of energy in the spectrum of full radiation. "Experimental observations on the wavelength distribution of the energy emitted by a black body as a function of temperature were at variance with the predictions of classical physics. Planck was able to deduce the relationship between the energy and the frequency of radiation" (Nobel Prize Portal). "When a black body is heated, electromagnetic radiation is emitted with a spectrum corresponding to the temperature of the body, and not to its composition. Calculating the form of the spectrum using then-known physical laws gave an unreasonable result; the radiation in the high-frequency area of the spectrum became infinite. Max Planck solved this problem in 1900 by introducing the theory of "quanta", that is, that radiation consists of quanta with specific energies determined by a new fundamental constant, thereafter called Planck's constant" (ibid). In his speech, Planck said: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clearheaded science, to the study of matter, I can tell you … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, second state with the illustrations printed on text paper. [The first state of the first printing has the illustrations on glossy coated paper. As Willa Cather objected to the glossy paper, the balance of the first printing was printed on the same paper used on the text pages. It is thought that 2,500 copies were printed on coated paper and that only 1,000 copies were printed on the same paper as was used for the text.] This copy is somewhat askew and shows rubbing the the spine ends and board corners as well as mild damage to the spine panel, a few margin tears (not affecting the text), prior owner's signature in pencil to the half title, and a couple of stray marks to the rear free endpaper's verso.

BOSWORTH, JAMES
Hereford; Watkins and Wright, Printers, May 19, 1821, 1918. The only recorded copy. Not found on OCLC or COPAC. Skillfully washed, chivally backed and repaired at the folds and edges; in fine condition.. Broadside advertisement and poem, 53.5 x 42 cm, with a caption title in six types of various sizes, followed by a 57-stanza poem printed in three and four columns, surrounded by an ornate typographical border. A rare and unusual general merchant advertisement cast in the form of a broadside ballad, and an interesting example of advertising directed to the working class of the British Industrial Revolution. James Bosworth was a prominent Hereford merchant who used innovative methods to market his extraordinary array of goods and services - his Museum of Curiosities - and was notable for his pioneering role in tailoring and marketing consumer goods to the working class. His large format advertisements, which appeared in the Hereford Journal as well as separately, as here, began in the 1820s and were repeated for at least 20 years. The only similar example recorded is in the Sept. 29, 1841 issue of the Hereford Journal, which was noted by Alison Toplis in The Clothing Trade in Provincial England 1800-1850, who did not locate a copy of this 1821 example: "The Bosworth advertisement . . . was one of the rare examples of advertising targeting the working-class consumer . . . He had regularly supplied overseers of the poor with ready made clothing since the 1820s.

In-4 p., mz. tela coeva, 33 fascicoli di pp. 8/12 ciascuno + 1 numero speciale, con illustrazioni in b.n. nel testo. Di questa importante rivista settimanale - organo centrale della gioventù socialista tedesca - pubblicata il mercoledì (i primi 12 numeri) e poi ogni sabato, offriamo la rara prima annata completa: dal n. 1 (27 novembre 1918) al n. 35 (23 agosto 1919) + il Numero Speciale (di 16 pp., con copertina a colori) pubblicato il 1° Maggio 1919. La numerazione subisce un “salto”: dal n. 17 (19 Aprile 1919) si passa al n. 20 (10 Maggio 1919), ma la rivista è completa poiché i nn. 18 e 19 non vennero pubblicati editorialmente. Su questo periodico apparve in originale anche un breve scritto di Rosa Luxemburg (sul n. 2, 4 Dicembre 1918) dal titolo “Die Sozialisierung der Gesellscahft” (”La Socializzazione della Società”) - “one of Luxemburg’s fullest discussion of the nature of post-capitalist society”. Esemplare ben conservato.

"Now that the vote has been given to the women of New York they are charged with the duty of participating in the activities of government, including those of political parties. The intimate relation between government and parties, the influence of political organizations on the character of our national, state, and local government cannot be over stated.To be really a factor in these important matters, a new voter must enroll in the party of her choice, take her place in its organization, do her part at the primaries as well as at the general elections."

Schiavonetti, N[iccolo].
1918. Brompton: June 19, 1810. Oblong 12mo, beautifully written in copperplate script on one side of the page, bordered in black. Very good. § A sad but interesting association item, being the thanks (in the third person) sent by Schiavonetti to Benjamin West on the death of his brother Luigi, the engraver of Blake's The Grave illustrations and perhaps the most renowned commercial engraver of his day. West was of course the famous American artist, founder (with Reynolds) and second president of the Royal Academy. The Schiavonettis would have been well known to him; the note reads: "Mr. N. Schiavonetti respectfully returns thanks to Benjamin West Esq. for the last mark of respect paid to the remains of his lamented brother." Luigi died on June 7, 1810, leaving unfinished his work on Stothard's Canterbury Pilgrims, which was completed by Niccolo to compete with Blake's monumental engraving on the same subject.

Baracke, Die
Bando, [Selbstverlag], 1918. 388 S. 4°, Priv.-Leinenbd. Bando war ein japanisches Kriegsgefangenenlager während des Ersten Weltkrieges auf Shikoku, der kleinsten der vier japanischen Hauptinseln. Knapp 1000 deutsche und österreichisch-ungarische Gefangene waren hier interniert. Der Großteil der Internierten bestand nicht aus Berufssoldaten, sondern aus Reservisten und Freiwilligen. Bando galt als ?liberales Lager mit krerativem Gefangenenleben.? Ausdruck davon war die Lagerzeitung ?Die Baracke?, deren zweiter Band (von drei) hier vorliegt. Charakteristisch sind die überwiegend in Sütterlin handgeschriebenen Beiträge, zahlreiche Handzeichnungen aus dem Lagerleben, einige nachcoloriert. - Auf dem Einbandrücken ist irrtümlich ?Die Baracke, 1.? gedruckt, tatsächlich handelt es sich um den zweiten erschienenen Band. - Sehr gut erhaltenenes Expl.

[Chicago]: E.G. Renesch, 1918. Photographically-illustrated lithographic broadside, approximately 16 x 20 inches. Minor surface wear. Near fine. Framed. A handsome photo-collage showing the African-American soldiers and officers of the Eighth Illinois Regiment who fought in France during World War I. The upper portion is composed of two angled photographs showing hundreds of African-American soldiers with two oval portraits of commanding officers Col. Franklin H. Denison and John R. Marshall inset in the corners. Though they were also African Americans, both Denison and Marshall are depicted as light-skinned in the present portraits. The lower portion is a small-format panorama showing several hundred more soldiers from the Eighth Illinois. The text at middle, just below the caption title, provides background on the unit and its commanders: "The Regiment was mustered in the U.S. Volunteer Service as the Eighth Infantry, 370th U.S. National Guard, Illinois U.S. Volunteers. On June 28th, 1898, officers were commissioned by Governor John R. Tanner, then Governor of the State of Illinois. The first commander was John R. Marshall who commanded the Regiment and saw service during the Spanish American War in Cuba. He was placed on the retired list January 1st, 1914, and was succeeded by the present Commander, Colonel Franklin H. Denison, January 12th, 1914, who is at present Commanding Officer in France.

Muir, John
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1918. First edition of this collection of two dozen of Muir's essays documenting his travels throughout the American West between 1873 and 1902. Octavo, original gray cloth lettered in white, pictorial cover label, top edge gilt. Illustrated with 12 plates. Edited by William Frederic Bade. In fine condition. Laid in is an original manuscript leaf from Muir's "My First Summer in the Sierra" which reads, ".out their immense arms in what would seem most extravagant gestures, there is a majesty& repose about them that precludes all possibility of the grotesque, or even picturesque, in their general expression. The main branches." In fine condition. Originally published in 1918, this brilliant collection of letters and magazine articles spans nearly thirty years of Muir's writing. Here is Muir caught in a snowstorm below the peak of Mount Shasta; interviewing the one remaining miner in a Nevada ghost town; bathing "clean as a saint" in the Great Salt Lake, and sparring with Mormon elders; exploring the forests of Puget Sound, and climbing Mount Rainier; peering into the Grand Canyon, "a collection of stone books covering thousands of miles of shelving, tier on tier." "Muir's writing has survived for a century because he was not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve. He didn't hunt or fish in the wilderness, sell trees or snag nuggets, and thus in a sense he has only been freshened for us by the passage of time" (Edward Hoagland). Kimes 351; BAL 14777.

DUNSANY, Edward Plunkett Lord.
Boston: The Four Seas Company, 1918. Small octavo, pp. 32. Original green boards, titles in black to red paper label to front board, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Negligible rubbing to spine ends, a couple of spots of soiling to boards, occasional fingermarks to lightly foxed contents; nevertheless a very good copy. First edition, first printing, one of 500 copies only. Presentation copy, touchingly inscribed by the author to the front free endpaper, "To the one of our family who had faith in me. Alice H. S. from Dunsany, July 1919", and his manuscript correction to the text on page 14, adding to the margin the words "compared with" to the line "his knowledge is to be compared with a whole people". The recipient was Dunsany's cousin Alice Holroyd Smyth, née Ponsonby, (d. 1945) who was friends with a number of those in his literary circle, including the poet Oliver St. John Gogarty. She is described in family accounts as a "very eccentric intellectual" who "wrote the chess problems for The Field in addition to quite good poetry" and held extended correspondence with a number of local members of the IRA during the Anglo-Irish War. Nowadays is an essay refuting the notion that "poetry is dead" first delivered by Lord Dunsany at the Poet's Club in London in July 2012 (Joshi, p. 174). Two passages, emphasising the merits of poets, have been highlighted in this copy in pencil by Holroyd Smyth. S. T. Joshi, Critical Essays on Lord Dunsany, 2013.
