        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

      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. First edition in original wraps; the wraps are housed in a custom case, gilt-lettered and tooled at the spine and on the front board. 4to. (Wraps: 10 x 7.25 inches; 250 x 181mm).

      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]

        Photo Album of the 222nd Aero Squadron

      [England, 1918. Very Good. Oblong quarto. 7.5" x 10.25". Quarter morocco over coarse pebbled cloth. Contains 95 black and white gelatin silver photographs adhesive mounted both sides. Photos measure from 1.5" x 3" to 3.5" x 5.75"; about 10 of them appear to be commercial. Album good: board edges and corners heavily worn with losses; front board mostly detached; many leaves detached. Leaves toned with occasional foxing, photos generally very good or better.A wonderful hand drawn title page introduces this album by a member of the 222nd Aero Squadron. The 222nd formed in December 1917 at Scott Field in Illinois, moving to Garden City, New York the following February. It arrived in England in March 1918, and some of the men were sent to France on November 5, 1918 but for the most part the men stayed and trained in England. The album's compiler likely was in France as there are a couple of large commercial photos from France.A good number of the images show wrecked planes. There are aerial photos, group shots including one of the band, and a number show planes in flight. Others show the men chumming it up, working at a typewriter, and one shows a man piecing aerial photos together. A few are hand tinted. The leaves are also embellished with several other drawings including a downed German plane, falling bombs, ribbon-wrapped propellers and more.Exceptionally artful and interesting view of an earlyu aero squadron.

        THE QUANTUM THEORY OF LINE SPECTRA

      Kopenhavn/Kristiania: Bianco Lunos Bogtrykkeri, 1918. 36 and 37-100 pp. Uncut and largely unopened. Original grey wrappers printed in black. Seperate Copy printed in upper left hand corner of front wrappers. Slight fraying to edges and spine of wrappers; some minor browning. Presentation copies inscribed by Bohr on front wrapper of part I: "Herrn Professor Dr. E. Gehrcke, Hochachtungsvoll vom Verfasser". The 2nd part with a stamp "Fra Forfasser". Both parts marked Bohr 1918 in ink in old hand. Bohr´s revolutionary atomic theory, based on Planck´s quantum theory, laid an entirely new foundation for our understanding of the processes within the world of matter. Bohr was not a prolific author - the process of writing was for him a difficult and painful one - and his 'Quantum Theory of Line Spectra represents perhaps his most sustained effort set forth all of the aspects of his atomic theory. "By 1918 Bohr has visualized, at least in outline, the whole theory of atomic phenomena ... He at once started writing up (in the present paper) a synthetic exposition of his arguments and all the evidence upon which they could have any bearing; in testing how well he could summarize what was known, he found occasion to check the soundness of his ideas and to improve their formulation. In the present case, however, he could hardly keep pace with the growth of the subject; the paper he had in mind at the beginning developed into a four-part treatise, publication of which dragged over four years without being completed; the first two parts appeared in 1918, the third in 1922, and the fourth, unfortunately, was never published" (DSB). - Part 1 and 2 only of the rare offprint edition, part 3 (18 pp.) missing, see below. Ernst Gehrcke (1878-1960) spent most of his scientific career on the relation between electricity and gasses, this basic research being important for the later development of gas-filled light bulbs and tubes. He is most well known as opposing the general theory of relativity as outlined by Einstein in 1916. Most discussion thereon can be found in German newspapers around 1920, culminating in a paper of Gehrkes hand DIE MASSENSUGGESTION DER RELATIVITATSTHEORIE as late as 1924. The title sounds a bit outlandish, Einstein having been awarded the Nobel prize for 1921. Maybe this is the reason Bohr did not send Gehrcke an offprint of the 3rd part in 1922. Alicke 269/65.. First Edition.

        [Portrait of a Man in a Derby Hat] "Madison Ave. Car." 1918

      Manhattan, New York: 1918. Original color crayon drawing. Signed, titled and dated in the image. Titled and dated on the support sheet. 7.1 x 5.4 inches. Provenance: 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.

        Lackalbum des Ober-Maschinisten P. Opitz auf der M. S. Emden zu den deutschen Kolonien im Pazifik und China sowie nach Japan, mit ca. 175 Original-Photographien und 4 handschriftliche Tagebücher.

      1912-1918. - Format des Photoalbums ca. 28x36 cm, mit 175 Original-Photographien auf 23 Kartontafeln montiert, davon 4 lose beigelegt, gelackte Holzdeckel mit Lederrücken, Format der Tagebücher ca. 17,5x11 cm, Ganzleinenbände der Zeit, ca. 480 Blätter. Teils getonte Photographien. Die oft privaten, teils aber auch professionellen Aufnahmen überwiegend im Format 10 x 14 cm. Auf den Trägern zahlreiche Legenden in deutscher Sprache. Gezeigt werden deutsche aber auch chinesische Soldaten (u.a. General Weh Tsin He mit seinen Nordtruppen), erschossene Rebellen, alte Bauten, Einheimische, Landschaften, deutsche Kriegsschiffe, Szenen im Hafen etc. Unter den erwähnten Orten: Tsingtau (17 Ansichten der Stadt, Gebäude, Hafenanlagen und militärische Bauten), Lauschan (4 Aufnahmen), Shanghai (Public Garden, Customgetty, Chinesenviertel, Iltisdenkmal), Taitschingkung, Hongkong, Nangking, Port Arthur, ca. 20 Aufnahmen von Japan (Kobe, Nagasaki etc.), Neuguinea (u.a. Neu-Mecklenburg dazu viele Aufnahmen von Eingeborenen), etc. Am Ende mehrere Photos von deutschen Kriegsschiffen (MS Emden, Scharnhorst, Gneisenau, Nürnberg, Königin Louise, aufgelaufene deutsche Kreutzer und die Emden in der Tsingtau-Werft etc., die letzten beiden Tafeln mit querformatigen Photographien aus Ägypten bestückt. Auf einem Mannschaftsphoto ist der Maschinist Opitz mit abgebildet (als Mitglied der SMS Graudenz, die u.a. beim Gefecht an der Doggerbank teilnahm und auf der Opitz am 22.XI.1914 auf diesem Photo abgelichtet wurde, also kurz nach seinem Abschied von der Emden). Meist ausführlich von privater Hand mit Tinte unterhalb der Aufnahmen beschriftet. Dazu: ein handschriftlich geführtes, engbeschriebenes Tagebuch des Obermaschinisten P. Opitz das seine Zeit auf der MS Emden ab 1912 bis zum 21. 7. 1914, also 2 Monate vor der Versenkung der Emden im Gefecht bei den Kokosinseln am 9. November 1914 dokumentiert. Opitz ging 2 Monate zuvor von Bord und entging dem Untergang. Neben oft täglichen Eintragungen zum Alltag an Bord auch zahlreiche Aufzeichnungen interessanter Begebenheiten die Opitz während der Fahrt der Emden zu den deutschen Kolonien im Pazifik machte. Diese ab 1913 unternommene Reise führte zu den Inseln Yap und Neuguinea, wurde dann jedoch von Unruhen in China unterbrochen. Der Kreuzer wurde auf den Fluss Jangtse beordert und beschoss dort erfolgreich Forts der Aufständischen. Außerdem leistete er Geleitschutz für deutsche Handelsschiffe. Im August 1913 wurden vor Hankau, 500 Kilometer flussaufwärts, mehrere Schiffe von Rebellen beschossen. Vizeadmiral Maximilian von Spee befahl die Emden zur Unterstützung dorthin. Nach Beschießung des Forts Tung-Lin-Chan trat auch dort wieder Ruhe ein. Nach einer Japanreise mit der Scharnhorst und dem Torpedoboot S 90 lag die Emden Ende 1913 in Shanghai. Im Februar 1914 wurden die Kessel und Maschinen der Emden ein letztes Mal in der Werft von Tsingtao überholt. Am 28. März 1914 kollidierte der Kleine Kreuzer beim Auslaufen zu einem Gefechtsmanöver mit dem Torpedoboot S 90. Viele dieser wichtigen Erlebnisse werden in dem Quartheft immer wieder angeschnitten. Die weiteren 3 Tagebücher beschreiben seine Zeit zur See von 1914 bis 1918. Der erste Band ca. zur Hälfte beschrieben, alle anderen Bücher voll ausgefüllt. Eine aussergewöhnliche schriftliche und photographische Dokumentation eines Ober-Maschinisten der auf der M.S. Emden stationiert war. Etwas angestaubt, Schrift selten gering verwischt, insgesamt gut. Die Kanten des Albums etwas bestoßen, die Deckel leichter kratzspurig.

        TEXT BEGINNING WITH "NOS AUTEM GLORIARI OPORTET. . ."

      Italy [perhaps Perugia], ca. 1280. Based on the number of fine initials present here, as well as the high quality of the illumination, there is no question that this leaf comes from a particularly sumptuous Missal. Although an exact workshop or artist identification has thus far eluded scholars, the delicate style and high quality of the decoration suggest that both the scribe and the artist were working in Perugia, and were clearly of high caliber. The attention to detail, the artful molding of the figures, and the confident application of paint are thoroughly excellent. According to Voelkle and Wieck, this leaf and its sister mentioned in the Breslauer catalogue are unusual Missal specimens in that the large initial marking the Introit actually illustrates the Gospel reading for that day. In our case, the Introit initial depicts Joseph of Arimathea laying the body of Christ in his own tomb, recounting a scene from the Passion described in Mark 14:32-72 and 15:1-46. According to this passage, it was Joseph who asked Pilate for the body of Christ, bought linen in which to wrap the corpse, and "laid him in a sepulcher which was hewed out of a rock." (Mark 15:46) Although the artist has depicted the scene in finer surroundings than suggested by Mark--with arches and candles, set upon a gold ground--he has stayed true to the Word by depicting an uneven, rocky surface under the smooth, stone tomb. The smaller historiated initial features the prophet Jeremiah in half length and holding a book, marking the beginning of the Epistle reading from the Book of Jeremiah. This leaf comes from the distinguished collection of Bernard Breslauer (1918-2004), the legendary bookdealer whose excellent private collection of Medieval manuscript leaves, early printed books, and fine bindings spoke to his experience and discerning eye. His collection was sold in two sales in 2005 by Christie's for more than $4,000,000.. 365 x 245 mm. (14 3/8 x 9 5/8"). Double column, 25 lines in a fine gothic rotunda. Rubrics in red, four one-line initials in red or blue with contrasting penwork, two two-line initials and two four-line initials painted pink and blue, with green and orange highlights and beautifully gilt, all but one initial with wing-like extenders at the head and tail, A FIVE-LINE HISTORIATED "I" with a prophet holding a book on a gilt ground, with extenders as elsewhere, AND A FIVE-LINE HISTORIATED "N" DEPICTING THE ENTOMBMENT OF CHRIST, the scene on a gold ground and the initial in pink on a blue ground with white penwork, with extenders. Voelkle and Wieck, "The Bernard H. Breslauer Collection of Manuscript Illuminations," no. 59. Gold with two negligible chips on one of the lesser initials, text a little faded on verso, three tiny round wormholes, other very minor imperfections, but IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION, the paint fresh and perfectly preserved, and the gold glistening. Based on the number of fine initials present here, as well as the high quality of the illumination, there is no question that this leaf comes from a particularly sumptuous Missal. Although an exact workshop or artist identification has thus far eluded scholars, the delicate style and high quality of the decoration suggest that both the scribe and the artist were working in Perugia, and were clearly of high caliber.
