        World War One Photograph Album - Navy Band Member aboard the U.S.S. Iowa and in France

      Philadelphia, Norfolk, Atlantic Ocean, and France, 1919. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album is approximately 11.5" x 7.5" and contains almost 120 photographs ranging in size from approximately 2" x 3" to 6.5" x 10". The photographs document the daily life of a Navy tuba player during World War I as a member of U.S.S. Iowa band and also during a deployment to France, probably during 1919. A few of the images are Real Photo Post Cards taken by one of the band members. The photographs are in nice shape; many are captioned on the front and some (probably most) are captioned on the reverse. (Several have loosened, and their captions are visible.) A band program and two printed poems by W. E. Wing about naval life in Tidewater are laid in. One of the poems has a manuscript explanation of the naval terms used in the verse. The Iowa, an old battleship that had be decommissioned in 1914, was brought out of mothballs and re-commissioned in 1917 when the U. S. entered the war. She was initially berthed at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and served as a receiving ship, but by November she had relocated to Norfolk, Virginia where she patrolled the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay and also served as a training ship for the Atlantic Fleet. Photos include one of John Philip Sousa (he came out of retirement to serve in the Navy during war), formal shots of the band posed in front of the Iowa's main guns, many of the band in concert and on parade (both afloat and ashore), other U. S. and foreign vessels, life aboard ship (mess time, scrubbing decks), recreation (baseball and football games, swimming), a Navy band playing on board a troopship headed for France, a Navy band in France (visiting Reims, a destroyed tank, and American graves), and the Navy's NC-4 seaplane that was the first aircraft to successfully fly non-stop across the Atlantic in the spring of 1919. Overall, this is an attractive collection of photographs documenting WWI wartime service in the U.S. from a seldom seen perspective. No doubt, quite scarce.

        Échos de mon atelier.

      Paris: imprimé à la main par Raymond Duncan, 1919 - Octavo, 24 pp. Single quire sewn in original buff card wraps printed in black. Wraps faintly toned and a little creased at extremities. An excellent copy. One woodcut illustration in the text, vignette to rear wrap and prelim leaf. First edition and only edition. This pamphlet, a manifesto in effect of the author's philosophy of "actionalism", was hand-printed by him, using a typeface of his design. At the time it came off the press, Raymond Duncan, elder brother Isadora Duncan, was running the Akademia with his wife Penelope in Paris. They had previously lived in Greece in the manner of the Ancient Greeks, in a villa outside Athens. Their Akademia, based on the model of Plato's Academy, offered free courses which reflected Duncan's multi-disciplinary creative output; like his sister he was a dancer, but he was also a poet, a philosopher and an artist. In 1955 Duncan featured in Orson Welles's documentary on Saint-Germain-des-Prés, as part of the series "Around the World with Orson Welles". A scarce title, OCLC lists only three copies.

        Photographs of the North Russian Relief Force. April 1919 to October 1919. General H. deV. Sadleir-Jackson's Brigade." Approximately 100 snapshots, mounted and captioned in ink. Typed order bearing the ink stamp "Russian Relief Force" dated 9 September 1919 laid down

      1919 - Photographs measuring 6 x 4 inches and smaller. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (8 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches). RARE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE NORTH RUSSIAN RELIEF FORCE 1919. A rare survival from a distinguished World War One veteran. Born in India, Nightingale was educated at Rugby and Sandhurst and joined the Royal Fusiliers in 1910. He survived the landing on V beach (Cape Helles, Gallipoli) April 25th, 1915, and the following year he was awarded both the Military Cross and the Legion D'Honneur for his services. Nightingale subsequently served with the 46th Battalion Royal Fusiliers in the North Russian Relief Force, part of the invasion of Russia by the English, Irish and the Americans. The operation was conducted under the command of General H. de V. Sadleir-Jackson.Arriving in Archangel on 5 June 1919, the 46th proceeded along the Dvina River to Osinova where preparations were made for an attack on rail and river transport. The objective was to repel the Red Army from their established positions and generally improve the position of the White Russian forces. The hope was that the NRRF would be able to subsequently withdraw without significant casualties. In addition, smaller raids on Red Army positions were carried out to the south, partly to destabilize them, partly as reconnaissance. Nightingale was in command of the Borok Column on the right bank of the Dvina River for the August 10 offensive.The first photos are of the H.M.T. "War Summit" & H.M.T. "Pretorian" chugging through the Arctic Ocean and White Sea in Midsummer, June 1919 on its way to Archangel. They were billeted at Troitsa and among the many images of the town and its surroundings is one of where the mutiny of Dyer's Battalion took place. Equally, there are shots of Russian batteries, Allied defenses, company headquarters and regimental aid posts, as well as images of the Dvina River, Yaroslovskoe and Selso. A page is devoted to "Col. Davies Headquarters at Commencement of Action Aug 10th" and shows how the British troops organized themselves in the Selmenga Forest, namely with three shots of "Piccadilly Circus (Selmenga Forest) with Shaftesbury Avenue and Regent Street."The attack commenced at noon and, despite the difficulty of the terrain, was successful. We know that Borok (Nightingale's objective) was reported captured, along with 80 POWs, by eleven o'clock that evening. Nightingale was evacuated in late September.This is not only a record of the battle but includes many poignant personal touches too. Namely, there are several shots of men with whom he served and the Russians with whom he stayed. The captions not only name the men in each photograph, but in many cases reveal their fate: "Lt Taylor (killed Aug 10th) Lt Grant (wounded Aug 1st) Capt. Driver (killed Aug 10th)."The album also includes a typed order - dated September 9, 1919 - which is a reminder that, despite the success of the August attack, the Russian Civil War was ongoing and would ultimately be won by the Bolsheviks. "You will send one platoon to SELMENGA to hold the SELMENGA BRIDGE and the beach road to GORODOK. The enemy are known to be in force in the vicinity of BOROK and GORODOK and may attempt an outflanking movement ? The platoon remain in position there, and will withdraw when Captain de Miremont with the GORODOK Infantry comes through there tonight ? The Platoon should form a right flank guard to Captain de Miremont from SALMENGA to PLESS."The photographs of Russia occupy the first half of the album, the rest is devoted to Nightingale's time in Ireland with the 7th Cadet Battalion. Despite his distinguished service in the military, Nightingale's fate was a melancholy one. He died in 1935, reportedly either by suicide (using his own revolver) of from alcoholism. Contemporary gray cloth, ms. title to upper board, upper joint wearing but holding nicely Photographs measuring 6 x 4 inches and smaller. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (8 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches)

        [Photo Album]: Two Photo Albums: New England Family, Boating, and the U.S.S. Shenandoah

      Providence, Rhode Island. 1919-1926; 1926-1929. Two photo albums. Oblong quartos. Measuring 7" x 11". String-tied black textured leather over flexible paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 778 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs between the two albums, measuring between 2.5" x 3" and 5.5" x 8", some with captions. Both albums are very good with rips and tears on the boards; the later album's rear board is detached but present, with near fine photographs.Two photo albums kept by a member of the Parsons' family in New England between 1919 and 1929 mostly in Rhode Island and Connecticut. The albums contain a massive amount of photos, nearly 800, all capturing the upper middle class family, who made their money in the brass industry, through the decade of the 1920s. The family were avid boating enthusiasts and the album is full of photos of a variety of boats and small ships, as well as of people posing on and around them. Most of the vessels are named in the album including sailboats named Swift Wind and Resolute, as well as Mischief and the H.M.S. Wraith. These photos also show men in the rigging of the ships repairing and working on them as well as ships on land being built and painted. A variety of family members of all ages can be seen enjoying the excursions from grandma to the (obviously well-beloved) family dog. One group of photos shows the family on a trip to Quebec and includes the family boat, Nada, as well as photos of the various waterways. There is also a sketch of a sailboat laid-in, drawn on letterhead, which reads, "on board the Pontiac." Also documented throughout the album are a number of births in the family with photos of chubby newborns with their nurses, mothers, and fathers. Later in the album there are a number of photos of the USS Shenandoah which was the first of four U.S. Navy rigid airships. The 14 photos show the Shenandoah "tied up to the USS Patoka" docked in Newport in August of 1924. Patoka was the first ship used as an "airship tender" and in 1924 an "experimental mooring mast" was added to the oiler as well as a variety of accommodations for the crew of both the oiler and the airship. These photos show the Shenandoah moored in Newport shortly after the mast was erected. To test the mast and airship the Shenandoah flew from New Jersey to California and then continued on to Washington State, making it the first airship to fly across North America. A little over a year after it was constructed the airship was caught in a storm over Ohio and crashed.Also included in the album are obituaries for Phineas F. Parsons and Edmund Hayden (E.H.) Parsons, who appear to be the patriarchs of the family. Both men had ties with the brass industry. Phineas, the elder Parsons, who died at age 91 was a well-regarded member of the jewelry community with a career spanning over 60 years. E.H. died around the same time as his father after being "suddenly stricken" with an illness at 73. He spent 30 years in the brass trade before retiring to take over Locust Farms in Warwick. One photo shows the family on "Gramp's Birthday" on the farm in 1922.An interesting look at a New England family in the 1920s with an emphasis on the boating culture of a Rhode Island. .

        Histoire de Minoutchehr selon Le Livre des Rois.

      1919 - Illustrée par Michel SIMONIDY. Paris, Piazza, 1919, in-8, plein maroquin bleu, plats encadrés d'un décor mosaïqué géométrique orientaliste, dos orné et titré à 4 nerfs, gardes plein maroquin bordé de cinq filets dorés et d'un décor géométrique orientaliste, contregarde tissé de motifs géométriques, tranches dorées, sous étuit papier reliure bordé de maroquin bleu signé, 184 pages complétées d'une double suite. (E. Maylander). Exemplaire nominatif (Jean Lindet numéro J), un des 25 exemplaires sur Japon avec deux états des illustrations. L'histoire du roi Minoutchehr constitue le septième chapitre du Shahnameh, Le Livre des Rois écrit par le poète Firdousi vers l'an 387 de l'hégire. Première grande œuvre de la littérature persane, ce fameux poème épique est considéré en Iran comme le livre national par excellence, au même titre que L'Illiade peut l'être en Grèce. La traduction en français, due à Jules Mohl (1838-1878), membre de l'Institut et professeur au Collège de France, est la meilleure de celles qui ont été faites dès le XIXe siècle, époque où Le Livre des Rois commença à être apprécié en Europe. Cet ouvrage est illustré de 49 compositions en couleurs rehaussées d'or et d'argent de Michel Simonidy : 1 frontispice, 10 hors texte, encadrements, en-têtes, lettrines et culs-de-lampe. Élève du célèbre maître pompier Léon Bonnat, ce peintre orientaliste d'origine roumaine (1870-1933), fait ici la preuve de ses talents de paysagiste, d'animalier et de peintre de nus. Ses compositions dépeignent tour à tour danses enfièvrées, langueurs des harems, caravanes, paysages nocturnes, combats d'animaux, charme sauvage des femmes et grandeur des princes. Cet exemplaire est enrichi d'une aquarelle à pleine page (22.4 x 16 cm) représentant une magnifique odalisque dansant à demi-nue ceinte aux hanches d'un saro, elle reléve son voile lumineux et laisse apparaître une magnifique chevelure noire ébéne. Ex-libris de Lalau pour H. Mareus. La préciosité du style orientaliste et le raffinement extrême de la reliure du maître E. Maylander constitue pour ce livre un écrin merveilleux. Livres

        Carrousels et Baraques.

      4to. Original cream buckram-backed pictorial white boards with original crimson ribbon to fore-edge; containing 3 unstitched quires (pp. 4; 12; 8, as issued), printed on handmade paper, with engraved text and illustration printed in grey together with 6 fine wood-engravings printed in colour on China paper, each mounted-at-large on cream card, and housed within a folder at the rear; an exceptionally fresh copy, both internally and externally, with all the plates in immaculate condition. First edition, limited edition. One of only 110 numbered copies on papier de Chine, of which this is example number 87. Forty additional copies were issued with the text vignettes coloured by hand. Edgard Tytgat (1879-1957) was a Belgian painter, printmaker, etcher and watercolorist who illustrated many books including Little Red Riding Hood and The Magic Flute. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels where he forged friendships with other future artists including Rik Wouters and Fernand Verhaegen. His style is impressionist, often described as naïve, and is imbued with a gentle poetry. In his preface to this work Tytgat recalls his fond memories of local village fairs in his homeland: "Pour mieux sentir les charmes dans les moeurs et les coutumes de son pays, il faut en être exilé. Ainsi mes quatre années véçues à Londres, me font miroiter en souvenirs, toutes les étincelles des perles sur le velour noir et des petites glaces aux mille et un reflets ornant les carrousels et baraques de mon village...".

      8vo., (210 ? 138 mm), pp. 57, [1]; printed in red and blue; uncut in the original publisher?s boards.Limited edition (500 copies printed, this being no. 3), designed by Leopold Fuchs, after which the types were destroyed. This copy contains 53 original colour illustrations, (finished to varying degrees), some of them erotic, one below each epigram, by the Expressionist artist Erich Büttner, who has also removed the title-page (noting on the stub: ?Was einst der Herr von Goethe bewitzelt hat nun ein Maler ausgekritzelt?, quasi ?What once Goethe poked fun at a painter has now scribbled out?), decorated the endpapers and painted over the covers. A pencil note, by Büttner, below the colophon reveals that this copy was made as a Christmas present for the bibliophile Emil Tuchmann in 1927. Büttner (1889-1936) was a member of the Berlin Secession, producing portraits of fellow artists George Grosz, Lovis Corinth, Arno Holz, and Heinrich Zille. He also designed book plates, notably Albert Einstein?s in 1917. Rodenberg, Deutsche Pressen, p. 408 (the first of Banas & Dette?s ?Hölderlin-Drucke?, 1919-22).

        British Economic Mission to Serbia. Technological Section. General Report.

      Foolscap folio. Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt ('Confidential - Advance Copy'); many parts of typed carbon-copied reports, several with signature of the Llewellyn at the end, others signed by other members of the mission, with one ink and wash plate of locomotives, three large folding maps in ink and watercolour, one large folding colour-printed lithographic map of the of mining activities in Yugoslavia, two statistical folding tables, photographic illustrations of agricultural machinery of three leaves, one plate of sections of sewage drains, 6 plates of river ports and depictions of the rail-river transport interface and a large folding plan of Split and surroundings; only light wear to binding, endpapers a bit browned, a few short marginal tears to folds of the maps, otherwise in very good condition. This unique, impressive tome was compiled after the First World War in order to assess the damage and explore the possibilities of the reconstruction and development of Serbia and its neighbouring countries, which were to form Yugoslavia. 'The Mission was sent in two contingents, of which the first had already returned, the object of the Mission being to investigate commercial conditions generally in Serbia and also reconstruction problems in engineering and public works, transportation, agriculture, timber, mining, town-planning, and sanitation. The official members of the Mission included no direct representative of any specific business interest. The first contingent of the Mission was, however, accompanied in an unofficial capacity by a representative of the Levant Company and a representative of the Associated British Manufacturers. The Mission was not intended to take the place of private initiative, but it is affording any facilities in its power to representatives in Serbia of British firms ... The Economic Mission to Serbia was sent out in two contingents. The first contingent consisted of (1) Mr. E. C. D. Rawlins, Commercial Secretary for Serbia and Greece; (2) Lieutenant-Colonel C. E. Jordan Bell, R.E., War Office; (3) Mr. F. A. Llewellyn, Office of Works; (4) Mr. W. Trask, nominated by the Federation of British Industries. This contingent was accompanied in an unofficial capacity by ... Mr. A. E. Tabor, of the Levant Company, and Captain T. G. Mapplebeck, of the Associated British Manufacturers. The second contingent consists of (1) Mr. F. A. Llewellyn, Office of Works; (2) Captain E. C. Foot, Forestry Corps of Canadian Army; (3) Mr. G. E. Farrar, Office of Works; (4) Mr. C. L. K. Foot, ex-Manager of Government Stock Farm at Alington; (5) Mr. F. H. Cerrito, Office of Works; and (6) Mr. G. W. Tully, Office of Works (Scottish Branch). Mr. Rawlins was in charge of the Mission attached to it. Mr. F. A. Llewellyn has since been in charge' (Sir H. Greenwood in Hansard, 15 July 1919 vol. 118 cc186-8). Not much else is recorded about that British mission, apart from the cornucopia of information presented here on the economics, infrastructure, ethnic mix, as well as spas, nutrition and food production, topography, navigability of rivers, the increased responsibility of women in the workplace and a British assessment of the psyche ('temperament') of the inhabitants. .

        Il poema dello spazio

      Facchi 1919 (ma finito di stampare il 10 novembre 1918) collezione diretta da Maria Ginanni, 8°, br., pp.139 - (5), firma di appartenza, ritratto f.t. dell'autrice di Arnaldo Ginna. Brossura con grafica di Arnaldo Ginna. Maria Ginanni, moglie di Arnaldo Ginna, fu la più carismatica del nutrito gruppo femminile dei futuristi e direttrice della importante collana "L'Italia Futurista". La Ginanni non sposò le istanze più estreme del protofemminismo ma si limitò a scrivere bei libri, fra cui il presente, in cui si limitava ad esprimere, cercando di darle dignità, la sensibilità femminile, un "romanticismo cerebrale" non condiviso da tutti i futuristi. Nonostante la moderazione dell'autrice è possibile leggere alcuni commenti maschilisti a penna, probabilmente coevi, di un possessore che critica l'autrice e che la incita a rimanere in cucina, a fare la calza (e altro) a dimostrazione di quanto fossero moderni certi temi nell'Italia degli anni '20. # Prima edizione.
