WHITMAN, Walt (1819-1892); Marcel Gaillard (illustrates)
from the press of François Bernouard, 71, Rue des Saints-Pères, Paris, 1919. First Separate Edition of one of the three major poems of 1855 (with "I Sing the Body Electric" and "Song of Myself") merged in the first edition of Leaves of Grass, with plates designed and engraved on wood by Marcel Gaillard, limited to an edition of 250 numbered copies (this, no. 56) on Verge d'Arches paper. Royal 8vo (279 x 229mm): [38]pp, with 16 plates. Faint speckling to covers, else a virtually pristine example (partially unopened). Myerson H63.1.a. In this, its final version, "The Sleepers" runs 184 lines, in free verse, divided into eight sections. Whitman's speaker has a vision of wandering through the night, viewing the sleeping bodies of various people around America. He sees both the wretched and the peaceful, entering, in turn, each sleeper's dreams: a girl waiting for her lover, a dead body interred, a swimmer torn by waves and rocks, President Washington at war, and Whitman's mother meeting a Native American woman. He dreams the dreams of various nationalities, of student and teacher, master and slave. Gaillard's (1886-1947) woodcuts are expressionist and powerful. "Here, the poet is the one wakeful presence in a sleeping world, 'bending with open eyes over the shut eyes of sleepers.' This is the essence of Whitman's perspective. Others are at rest; he is restless. Others sleep together; he wanders alone. In sleep, others are all body and no consciousness; he is all consciousness, a floating eye recording the world from outside." (Matthew Aucoin, composer of "Crossing," an opera ba … [Click Below for Full Description]

San Francisco: San Francisco Examiner, 1919. Still very good.. 96pp. Original printed wrappers. Light foxing and minor wear to wraps. Portions of two rear leaves for notes and annotations torn out. Light foxing to initial leaves and light tanning throughout. Only edition of this scarce Bay Area directory, published by the San Francisco Examiner in 1919. The work lists San Francisco, Oakland, and East Bay office buildings, fronted by brief descriptions of each city or region, and provides extensive information about postal rates and mail regulations. The preponderance of the publication is occupied by the directory, once again divided by region, which runs the gamut from asbestos installers to yeast manufacturers, with Christian Science practitioners and sausage makers in between, with several lined leaves for annotations at the rear. This appears to be a test run of the publication, with all advertising spaces either blank or filled with promotions for the Examiner, and the paper apparently did not see fit to continue their efforts beyond this edition. We locate just one other example of the very scarce and slightly odd directory, at the Sutro Library.

New York: The Master Key Institute, 1919. This set of seven books is in excellent condition considering age. These donated books are NOT ex-library. The gold gilt has faded on covers and spines but is still noticeable. All books contain a 1919 copyright date except for book six which contains a copyright date of 1927. The books seem to be part of a set bought new at the same time. Please note that all volumes of the book except for volume 6 are copyright date 1919. Volume 6 has a 1927 copyright date. They appear to be from one set of books. Please see pictures. The Master Key System is a personal development series of 7 books by Charles F. Haanel (1866-1949) that was originally published as a 24-week correspondence course in 1912, and then in book form in 1916. The ideas it describes and explains come mostly from New Thought philosophy. (Wickipedia) The Master Key System must be looked at within the context of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The New Thought philosophy was in full swing with many books and magazines publishing the new beliefs for a seemingly ravenous audience. Based on Christian Science as espoused by Mary Baker Eddy, the Christian Scientists and many New Thought-ers held firmly to the belief about what Jesus Christ said about the powers available to each and every person. "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going … [Click Below for Full Description]

Foreword by]: Zapletal, Florian; [Joyce, James]; [Masaryk, Tomas Garrigue]; [Hasek, Jaroslav]
Alois Hynek, V Praze [Prague], 1919. First edition. In contemporary half cloth with gilt embossed title on the spine. Panels covered with marbled paper. Marbled edges. Decorated endpapers. XXI [1] 263 [1] p. The black book of the arch-traitors to Austria-Hungary, listing nearly 1400 persons including James Joyce, Tomá? Garrigue Masaryk, Jaroslav Ha?ek, and Edvard Bene? A 1917 directory compiled by the Austrian intelligence services, republished as anti-Austrian propaganda publication in the newly established Czechoslovak state. Published first by the I&R Presidium of Police in Prague (Präsidium der k. k. Polizeidirektion Prag) in 1917, the alphabetical directory includes the brief biographies and portraits of people accused of engaging in treasonous activities against the Austro-Hungarian Empire during WWI. The list features two of the future presidents of the First Czechoslovak Republic, Tomá? Garrigue Masaryk (1850-1937) and Edvard Bene? (1884-1948), as well as the author of The Good Soldier ?vejk Jaroslav Ha?ek (1883-1923), among others. Besides, it also includes James Joyce (1882-1941), listed as "politically suspicious" person living in Zürich. Most probably, Joyce was put on the list because the Tyrolean censors were unable to determine his origin and his actual occupation when monitoring his correspondence with his sister Eileen, who was living in Prague at that time. The present edition of the directory was published in 1919 as an anti-Austrian propaganda publication to represent the poor performance of the Austrian intelligence services.

Arthur Gray
1919. An excellent example of the beautifully-produced first printing of the first edition. Original pictorial hardback in its matching original dust jacket. 9 inches by 7 inches. The dust jacket is in very pleasing condition, clean and bright with some light wear, and a small chip to the top of the spine (see picture). The book itself is in similarly attractive condition with just the lightest hint of bumping to the corner-tips and spine-ends. Binding sound and square. Internally clean and bright. Signature of R A Hill to front endpaper. An unusually fine example. Arthur Gray (1852-1940), served as Master of Jesus College Cambridge from 1912 until his death. Sharing the fashionable donnish predilection for the supernatural, he published two ghost stories in university journals in 1910. This inspired a Cambridge Review poem in 1911 suggesting that they were the work either of M R James or A C Benson. The 1919 Heffer edition collected all the Gray ghost stories that had appeared up to then.

Da Traven nach Kräften versuchte seine Identität und Herkunft zu verschleiern ist sein Lebenslauf nicht offiziell dokumentiert sondern " nur " anhand einiger Forschungsergebnisse belegt. > siehe auch den Eintrag bei Wikipedia zu B.Traven. Ein sehr seltenes Büchlein das Kurzgeschichten erhält und als eine der ersten literarischen Veröffentlichungen B.Travens gilt, erschienen in dem von ihn geleiteten anarchistischen, revolutionären Verlag " Der Ziegelbrenner " der vor Allem ab 1917 als Herausgeber eines unregelmäßig erscheinenden Heftes mit gleichnamigem Titel in Erscheinung trat.

Wilson, Woodrow; David Lloyd George and Georges Clemenceau
1919. Rare large format of this famous photograph of the The Big Four, or the Council of Four, which refers to the four top Allied powers of World War I and their leaders who met at the Paris Peace Conference in January 1919. From left to right they are: David Lloyd George of Britain, Premier Vittorio Orlando of Italy, Premier Georges Clemenceau of France, and President Woodrow Wilson of the United States. Boldly signed by Lloyd George, Clemenceau, and Wilson. While there were more than twenty Allied nations that met at Paris Peace Conference, the Big Four were the leading architects of the Treaty of Versailles which was signed by Germany on June 28, 1919. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 23.25 inches by 20.5 inches. An exceptional piece, rare and desirable signed. While the Paris Peace Conference involved 32 nations, (twenty of which were Allies), the Big Four met informally 145 times and made all major decisions before they were ratified and were leading architects of the Treaty of Versailles which was signed by Germany; the Treaty of St. Germain, with Austria; the Treaty of Neuilly, with Bulgaria; the Treaty of Trianon, with Hungary; and the Treaty of Sevres, with the Ottoman Empire. At one point Vittorio Emanuele Orlando temporarily pulled out of the conference because Italian demands were not met, leaving the other three countries as the sole major architects of the talk, referred to as the "Big Three". The Italian delegation returned after 11 days. This photograph was likely signed during those 11 days, hence lacking Orlando's signature. [Attribute … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Wisden
Hi, Here we have a rare 1919 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. In my opinion the rarest 20th Century Wisden Hardback. The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to both the front and the spine. The boards are excellent, the bok seems a bit warped but a heavy book on top should cure that , a bobbling line to the front cover to the right with a slight knock to the right of the front board. Inside the hinges are very good, very tightly bound. The yellow pastedowns are good, it looks like a bookplate has been removed from the first page, you need to look close but I would say it has been. HD Swan to the right yellow page. Internally very good, Minimal foxing. Nice photoplate. Couple of pages have dog ears. A lovely book, a few niggles but still fabulous. Rare,

Altenberg, Peter, Schriftsteller (1859-1919).
"Lebensführung. (für das neue Buch 'Vita ipsa')". Der Text erschien aber dann in "Mein Lebensabend" (1919): "Beethoven sagte kurz vor seinem Tode: 'Ich halte mich für den unglückseligsten aller Menschen!' Ich glaube bestimmt, daß Franz Schubert und Hugo Wolf ganz Dasselbe empfanden. Von minderen Geistern gar nicht zu sprechen. Selbstmord-Kandidaten ohne die geringste Fähigkeit dazu! Morgens erwachen, sich waschen, sich umziehen, irgend etwas unternehmen, ohne Ehrgeiz, ohne Bedürfnis, auf die Wanduhr ängstlich blicken, bis es 10 Abends wird, aber es wird so bald nicht. Es fehlen Zündhölzchen, Seife, Cigarretten. Es fehlen wichtige Wäschestücke und Alles Alles muß bezahlt werden. Dabei gehen zugleich im Inneren die schrecklichsten und eigentlich stets dieselben Dinge vor. 'Wozu denn das Alles?!?' Das 'Personal' in unserem Hotel denkt an alle diese Dinge nicht. Sie arbeiten von 6 Morgens bis 11 Nachts. Und ihre Gespräche sind biblisch einfach. Nie eine besondere Aufregung über irgend etwas Besonderes. Immer nur nichtige unwichtige Kleinigkeiten. Und immer die gute Laune fleißiger von sich völlig abgelenkter Menschen. Aber Beethoven sagte vor seinem Tode: 'Ich bin der unglücklichste aller Menschen!' Wahrscheinlich dachten ganz Dasselbe Franz Schubert, Hugo Wolf etc. etc. Wie merkwürdig belohnt sich 'innere Bedürfnislosigkeit'. Aber belohnt sie sich denn wirklich?!? Keineswegs. Man tappt im Dunkel seiner eigenen Tage, bis es irgendwie zu Ende geht. Das Nicht-Bedenken ist ein ununterbrochenes Denken über das Nicht-Bedenken alles seines Sein's!!" Abweichend dazu heißt es in der Dr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Onchi Kōshirō 恩地孝四郎
1919. Onchi Kōshirō 恩地孝四郎. [Abstract Oil Painting]. Oil painting approx 41 x 32 cm in image size, an abstract(ish) still life with an apple, done while Onchi was quite young in about 1919. It is signed by him and is quite unusual in its embrace of abstraction (with a hint of the very influential Mr. Cezanne). Not for the fact of the abstract image itself, but rather for the medium. Oil paintings by Onchi are by no means common as he largely abandoned the medium by the 20s. Nor are his abstractions unknown, as he frequently created woodblock prints in an abstract mode and is, indeed, credited with the first fully abstract print in Japan [AKARUI TOKI] which appeared in his TSUKUHAE magazine number V in 1915. Nor is Cezanne's influence on the Japanese art world through his still lifes unknown, either. But this painting, combining oil and abstraction and a bit of Cezanne, makes for a remarkable piece, both historically and aesthetically.

BELL, Vanessa
c?, 1919. 240mm in diameter. Watercolour on glazed paper covered card. A concentric design in blue and black. Some wear and cracking to the surface. Mounted and framed. The pattern shows strong stylistic similarity to plates designed by Vanessa Bell for the Omega Workshops, founded by members of the Bloomsbury Group and established in July 1913. Omega closed in 1919, after a clearance sale, and was officially liquidated on 24 July 1920. The same aesthetic imbued Charleston, East Sussex, the country home of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant.

One of the earliest publications on rocketry and space flight, and the most influential and important of Goddard's scientific papers . The short treatise offered detailed mathematical proof that solid propellant rockets were capable of boosting modest instrument packages into the upper atmosphere. Determined to underscore the serious nature of his work, Goddard relegated his notes on the possibility of achieving spaceflight to the end of the paper, and he covered the possibility of multistage rockets and high-energy liquid propellants in appendices.

WILSON, Woodrow)
G. Felici, Roma, 1919. Oblong folio. Red morocco decorated and titled in gilt. Modest rubbing, mostly along the spine, else near fine. A wonderful collection of 29 large gelatin silver and gold-toned gelatin images, each measuring approximately 9" x 6.5", mounted on thick card, concerning Woodrow Wilson and his visit to Italy in 1919. Handwritten title page in ink, and three additional internal pages lettered in ink. Each image is neatly captioned in ink. Most of the images depict Wilson and other notables riding in Fiat touring cars, a few are of a small fleet of the cars unoccupied. Wilson spent six months, roughly the first half of 1919, in Europe for the Paris Peace Conference, becoming the first U.S. President to travel to Europe while in office, and the first to visit the Pope. The title page dates to Wilson's arrival in Rome on 3 January 1919. The first section depicts Wilson's triumphant arrival parading in Rome (nine images); the fleet of automobiles lined up outside a Fiat dealership or showroom in Rome (two images); Wilson's Tour of the Monuments of Rome in his Fiat Cars (12 images); and his arrival at the Vatican on January 4th (six images). Whether this album was prepared as a gift to Wilson, or perhaps issued in very small numbers for Fiat automobile officials we do not know, although we can find no other copies in *OCLC* or any other library catalog, including all of the major European databases.
