        Black Star Line, Inc., Unredeemed Stock Certificate Dated October 18, 1920

      New York: J. Meyers Inc, [1919]. Marcus Garvey founded the Black Star Line in 1919 as a part of his Back-to-Africa movement, selling stock at Universal Negro Improvement Association conferences. The purpose of the Line was to provide transportation of goods and people to Africa, though due to mismanagement, the poor condition of the ships purchased, and J. Edgar Hoover's infiltration of the company which led to a mail fraud charge (the ship depicted on a Black Star Line brochure was not technically owned by the company yet), the Line ceased to operate early in 1922. In 1920, however, the Line appeared to be a success with the very rapid purchase of the SS Yarmouth, a former coal boat active during World War I which the company renamed the SS Frederick Douglass and outfitted with an all-black crew and a black captain, sailing for the three years of the Line's existence between the United States and the West Indies. Thompson, acting as Vice President as of August, 1920, failed to procure the Orion, which had been chosen for the company's first transatlantic trip. In 1922 a jury indicted Garvey for mail fraud for which he was sentenced to five years in prison. By the time the Line ceased to run, no ships had made it as far as Africa. Pictorial stock certificate (22.75x27.75cm.) printed within green decorative border; recto fully accomplished in manuscript, verso text blank. Previous folds, a couple of short tears to extremities, the largest at bottom edge with minor subsequent creasing, else a Very Good example. Certificate no. 26668 providing two shares costing $5 apiece to a Mr. Newton D. Bacote, dated October 18, 1920, and signed by Jeremiah Certain (?) as Secretary-Treasurer and Orlando Montrose Thompson as President (though in reality Thompson was only Vice President). Pressure-stamp applied to certificate dated 1919.

        North of Boston

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1919. Second American Edition. Hardcover. This is the second American edition of the author?s second published book, a striking limited edition published in 1919, four years after the American first trade edition. Opening with the famous poems ?The Pasture? and ?Mending Wall,? North of Boston bolstered Frost?s newly minted literary reputation and precipitated his return to the United States from England. In 1919, the American publisher issued this second and limited edition of 500 copies. The binding featured a dark green linen spine over lighter green, paper-covered boards with a gilt-stamped spine and gilt front panel with title and author printed in black. The contents feature fourteen illustrations by James Chapin and are printed on heavy, watermarked, laid, linen-rag paper with untrimmed fore and bottom edges. A dust jacket was issued on heavy, dark green laid paper with gilt print on spine as well as the front cover, within a gilt rule frame. The edition is lovely, but proved fragile, the jacket particularly brittle, the paper-covered boards of the binding easily scuffed and soiled. This copy is very good in a poor dust jacket. The binding remains tight and square with only minor wear, but nonetheless showing minor bumps to the lower front corners and light scuffing and soiling to the covers. The contents are clean and bright with a crisp feel, showing no spotting or previous ownership names. The page edges, including the untrimmed fore and bottom edges, are clean with only mild age-toning. The dust jacket is noteworthy for having survived and has done its job protecting the binding, but suffered in the process. There is a full front hinge split, as well a detached front flap with chipping along the flap fold. We note moderate chipping to extremities to a maximum depth of .75 inches, and the spine and front cover gilt is faded, legible on the front face, barely so on the spine. The dust jacket is now protected and stabilized beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England. When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career. There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities. Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming. Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children ? ?the place to be poor and to write poems? ? that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet. The manuscript of A Boy?s Will was completed in England and accepted for publication by David Nutt on 1 April 1913. A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost?s second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which ?Frost?s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.? Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst ?launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever ?subjects? he pleased at a congenial college? and ?barding around,? his term for ?saying? poems in a conversational performance.? (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life as ?the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century? with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961). Bibliographic reference: Crane A3.3

      London: Constable & Co. Ltd, 1919. - "Never did Old Poems Appear so Gayly Bedecked than Some British Ballads "RACKHAM, Arthur. Some British Ballads. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co. Ltd, n.d. [1919]. Limited to 575 numbered and signed copies by the artist, this being copy no. 137. Quarto (10 7/16 x 8 5/8 inches; 265 x 218 mm.).

Corners very slightly bumped otherwise a near fine copy in a handsome binding."Several of the Ballads in this book are based on the great work of Francis James Child " (Note)"Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures . one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920)."Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book—Mr. Rackham’s paintings or the ballads themselves" (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).

        South The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914 - 1917

      London: William Heinemann, 1919. First edition, first impression. Hardcover. Very good condition. Shackleton's classic voyage to the Antarctic, where ice crushed the ship "Endurance", and a small party of the crew traveled 800 miles in an open boat to South Georgia to secure rescue. Miraculously, every man survived. The account of Shackleton's amazing story of survival during the "Endurance" expedition. Being published on wartime paper, there is the usual uniform browning of the page edges found in the first impression but a much better than average copy. The silver gilt is very bright making this a desirable copy. Small 4to, (xxi) 376 pp, color frontispiece & 87 b&w printed photographic plates, folding map at the rear. Original blue cloth with silver gilt title and silhouette of "Endurance" trapped in the ice. Cloth very lightly rubbed at spine ends and edges, cover corners rubbed and two small light marks on front and slight toning of blue on lower foredge corner, overall a bright copy.

      London: Andrew Melrose, Ltd.. ND (1919). 1st edition. hb. Royal 8vo, pp. xxi, 183. All plates are present as is the folding map placed at the end of the book. . Davis (1884-1967) was an English-born Australian explorer, navigator and one of the most experienced Antarctic seamen of the heroic era. King and the Australian explorer Douglas Mawson, became friends during Shackleton's 1907-1909 expedition and Mawson later recruited Davis to be captain of the "Aurora" on the 1911-1914 Australian Antarctic Expedition. This volume contains Davis's account, with a history of the ship from its construction in 1876. Much of the expedition narrative consists of brief entries by date, different than Davis's log, later published as "Trial by Ice" in 1999 (see Rosove p. 97). Our offering is an exceedingly scarce copy of the first edition (Rosove 87.A1.b), not only because it is a variant binding (described by Rosove as "far scarcer than the primary one"), but because it carries with it the publisher's original dust jacket. It is bound in orange cloth with black stamped lettering and a stamped design of the "Aurora" to the front board. The spine lettering is in gilt. The front board is a bit bowed and the extremities of both boards show light wear. The cloth is remarkably clean, although the foredge of the text block shows some foxing. There is a former owner's unobtrusive name and date to the front free endpaper. The frontispiece tissue guard is present and quite intact, although the top inch of the gutter of the title page is torn. The plate facing page 108 is slightly split at the gutter. The dust jacket has been laminated. It is intact, but shows creasing, edge rubbing and some small loss to the spine ends. .

        Drakula: roman [Count Dracula: a novel], volumes I and II (complete).

      Prague: NakladatelstvÍ Emila Šolce 1919 - Octavo (18.5 × 13 cm). Two volumes bound together in quarter cloth with paper-covered boards; title printed to spine; 3-447, [1] pp. Original wrappers perished; title page mounted on separate leaf and restored to margins; lacking the half-title preceding the second volume and the last leaf of volume one (pp. 287-88) has been supplied in facsimile. A few smaller tape repairs and stains throughout; overall still a good copy of a scarce title generally encountered in poor condition. First Czech edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula, one of the earliest translations of the novel, preceding the French and Italian translations. Given the novel's affinity with the former Austro-Hungarian lands and Eastern Europe in general, it is an understandable choice. Judging from the scarcity of this edition, the novel was quite popular. The translation was originally published in two volumes, here bound as one, and featured an unattributed wrapper illustration showing Dracula as a gloomy old man. In his recent survey of early Dracula translations, Simone Berni notes that "the 1919 edition was quite similar to a present-day paperback: it was rather poor and printed on low-quality paper. No hardcover copies are known. The copies we have are extremely fragile and the paper is so deteriorated that they cannot even be leafed through" (57). We are unable to find further information about the translator, apart from the fact that he was involved with the Esperanto community and was apparently active as a translator into Esperanto. For comparison with other editions see Berni, Dracula by Bram Stoker: The Mystery of the Early Editions, 2014, as well as the Melton bibliography (accessible online), which does not cite the present edition. KVK and OCLC only show the copy at the Czech National Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Il reconnaît l'influence majeure de LE NOTRE. Il est connu pour sa collaboration avec son frère, le peintre et décorateur Paul Vera. Il renouvele la conception française dont il sentait le déclin depuis les années 1840, et introduit le style moderne qui a perpetué la tradition française. Il était un défenseur de jardin à la française, avec des dessins géométriques strictement basé sur des lignes et des carrés à la place des formes curvilignes de l'Art Nouveau. Dans la conception urbaine, il a souligné l'importance d'inclure les arbres comme des éléments architecturaux, qui, pensait-il améliorer la santé physique et mentale des résidents.

        Collection of Letters from POW British Navy Soldier to Welsh Nurse

      Döberitz, Germany: 1915-1919 - [WWI] Collection of Letters from POW British Navy Soldier to Welsh Nurse Döberitz, Germany: 1915-1919. 41 pieces of WWI correspondence: 25 hand-written postcards, 14 hand-written letters, 1 Easter card, 1 photographic postcard of soldier Roberts. All written from William F.J. Roberts, a member of the Royal Navy Division of the British Army, a prisoner of war in Germany, to Kathleen Touzel Wynne-Edwards, a nurse from North Wales, UK (with the exception of one letter, which was written to Kathleen from Roberts' father.) Most written on Kriegsgefangenensendung "prisoner of war mail" postcards or letterhead issued by Döberitz, a few on blank paper, mostly written in pencil with the others in ink. Generally very good, with some toning and soiling, a few with tears to edges. William F.J. Roberts was a member of the Royal Navy Division of the British Army during World War I. The group notably participated in battles at Antwerp in 1914 and Gallipoli in 1915. Roberts was captured by the German Army following the Seige of Antwerp in 1914 and subsequently became a prisoner of war. He was detained at Döberitz, a military training camp in Germany that later housed POWs, and he endured the length of the Great War there. From September 6, 1915 - February 16, 1919, Roberts wrote to Kathleen Wynne-Edwards (née Touzel), a devoted and patriotic nurse from North Wales. In addition to their correspondence, Kathleen sent Roberts care packages containing food, clothes, and cigarettes. Additionally, she helped find correspondents for Roberts' fellow prisoners and assisted in war-relief efforts on the home front. Kathleen continued to write to Roberts through the war's end in 1918, her devotion not wavering even after getting married to John Wynne-Edwards in 1916 and giving birth to two daughters. In addition to chronicling the correspondence between a POW and a nurse, this collection of letters demonstrates the decomposition of romantic conceptions of war and the subsequent disillusionment that shaped the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s-1930s. Roberts is hopeful in his earliest letters to Kathleen, asking for cakes, clothing and cigarettes, and telling her of his pre-war civilian life. As his imprisonment extends, Roberts becomes less concerned about the food parcels Kathleen sends and more about the emotional sustenance of their friendship and communication. As the war continued well beyond its intended duration, soldiers on both sides became increasingly convinced that WWI would serve no purpose, leading to an increased disparity between the presentation of the war on the homefront and trench reality. Döberitz, a military training camp in Germany, was first used as a site for militaristic purposes in the 18th century. After the outbreak of World War I, a temporary prisoner of war camp was erected on the outskirts of Döberitz. By 1915, the complex included two newly erected buildings to house the increasing number of POWs. Before the war's end in November 1918, Döberitz would house more than 30,000 prisoners from seven different nations. Related People: Roberts, William F. J. - English soldier of the Royal Navy Division Wynne-Edwards, Kathleen Violet M. (née Touzel) - Welsh Red Cross nurse Roberts, J. - father of William F. J. Roberts Wynne-Edwards, Lieutenant-Colonel John Copner - married Kathleen Touzel in 1916 I. 1915 1. Roberts, William F.J. Four handwritten postcards and three handwritten letters addressed to Kathleen Touzel, from September 6 - December 26, 1915. In these letters, Roberts briefly introduces himself by referencing his involvement in the 1914 Seige of Antwerp and his home in Gloucestershire, England, where he resided with his parents. He also profusely thanks Kathleen for her parcels and makes several request for socks and other clothing items. 2. Roberts, J. One handwritten letter to Kathleen Touzel, December 15, 1915. J. Roberts writes to Kathleen to thank her for the kindness and devotion she has shown his son William F.J. Robe
