        [Photo Album]: U S S Huntington World War I

      France, 1919. Near Fine. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 7" x 11". String-tied olive green cloth over paper boards with "Pictorial Log U.S.S. Huntington" stamped on the front board. A photo album containing 159 sepia toned photographs, many printed as real photo postcards, most measuring 3.5" x 5.5", some with captions. A very good album with worn edges and fading with near fine or better photographs. A photo album kept by a sailor on the U.S.S. Huntington during the last year of World War I beginning in 1917. The album begins with an eight page handwritten log giving a brief account of the activities on the ship including maintenance off the coast of Norfolk after returning from France which involved coaling and refreshing the paint before setting off for New York and eventually going to England. The photos show the Huntington and other vessels the crew encountered on their journey across the Atlantic including a "Jap destroyer." The Huntington was one of the first ships to experiment with the use of observation balloons and seaplanes. There are photos of various seaplanes "launched from the Huntington" and with a couple captioned "hoisting aboard a wrecked plane," as well as of a crew used for a rescue mission of a larger vessel. A shipfitter on board, Patrick McGunigal, was the first person to earn a medal of honor during World War I after he rescued someone from a balloon crash. The ship docked at Brest, France, which was used during the war as a rest camp for sailors to recuperate after the long voyage to the continent. There are a few photos of ships sporting "dazzle camouflage," which worked "not by offering concealment but by making it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed and heading." The album continues until 1919 with photos of the Panama Canal and Saint Augustine, Florida.An extensive collection of photos showing an American sailor's tour of duty during World War I.

        North of Boston, an author's presentation copy with a lovely, signed gift inscription from Frost and further signed by him on his frontispiece portrait

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1919. Second, limited American edition and first illustrated edition. Hardcover. This is an author's presentation copy of the second American edition (and first illustrated edition), and is both inscribed and signed by Frost. A lovely inscription entirely in Frost's hand is inked in black eight lines on the recto of the second blank endpaper preceding the half title: “For Louise Coolidge Carpenter | from | Robert Frost | who | as early as the year 1918 | recognized by certain | signs the artist in her.” Frost signed in the lower right margin of the frontispiece portrait by Chapin: “Robert Frost”. Louise Coolidge Carpenter (1901-1995) was born in Framingham, Massachusetts to U.S. Senator Marcus A. Coolidge and Ethel Warren Coolidge. Louise was a painter, explaining the author's reference to “signs of the artist in her”. Although we are unaware of their relationship, it must have been sustained; Frost's inscription implies that he knew her as early as 1918, a full decade earlier than her 1928 marriage to Donald Fell Carpenter (1899-1985), who would later become the first civilian Chairman of the Military Liaison Committee of the Atomic Energy Commission. Originally published in England in 1914 and the U.S. in 1915, North of Boston opens 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. The edition was beautiful, but fragile. This author's presentation copy is in good condition, sound, but showing age, wear, and, perhaps, the well-handled regard in which it was held by the recipient. The binding remains square and tight, but soiled, with overall scuffing to the boards and spine and a small, whitish stain to the lower front cover. The contents are fully intact, all illustrations and tissue guards present. Moderate spotting appears at the endpapers, the blank versos of some illustrated plates, and the untrimmed page edges. Frost's inscription and further frontispiece portrait signature remain distinct with no appreciable fading. Iconic American poet Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963) was the quintessential poetic voice of New England. Ironically, Frost was born in San Francisco and it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children – “the place to be poor and to write poems” – that catalyzed his recognition. A Boy's Will was completed in England, published by David Nutt in 1913. A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the 1914 English publication of Frost's second book, North of Boston, 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 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 his final decade and a half 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

        Dame im Kaffee mit aufgestütztem Arm vor leerem Glas.

      - Radierung in Braun, 1919, auf Velin, links unten signiert. 20,8:14,3 cm. – Verso mit Resten alter Montierung. Literatur: Rosenbach 87, außerhalb der Auflage von 100 Exx. Sehr guter Abdruck mit vollem Rand. Der aus jüdischer Familie stammende Berliner Maler und Graphiker Lesser Ury brach 1879 eine begonnene kaufmännische Lehre ab, um sich in den 1880er Jahren an verschiedenen Orten und an maßgeblichen Kunstakademien der Zeit auszubilden: Düsseldorf, Paris, Brüssel und schließlich München sind die Stationen, nachdem er 1885 bei der Berliner Kunstakademie eine Ablehnung erfuhr. 1887 kehrte er in seine Heimatstadt zurück und stellte unter anerkennender Kritik erstmals 1889/1890 in der Galerie von Fritz Gurlitt aus. Adolph Menzel (1815-1905) förderte ihn, auch mit Max Liebermann (1847-1935) war Lesser Ury anfangs sehr freundschaftlich verbunden, bis es wenig später zum rivalisierenden Zerwürfnis kam. Lovis Corinth (1858-1925) konnte den Künstler schließlich 1914 an die „Berliner Secession" holen, die Galeristen Paul Cassirer und Heinrich Thannhauser stellten ihn 1916/1917 aus, 1922 zeigte die Secession eine 150 Gemälde umfassende Schau. Das druckgraphische Werk Lesser Urys hatte sich schon um 1920 in Sammlerkreisen seinen Platz erobert.

        Treasure Box.

      [London: for the author, 1919] - Octavo, 16 pp. Original plain blue wrappers. Housed in a custom blue morocco backed-slipcase and matching chemise. Wrappers split along spine and slightly marked. A very good copy. Vignette title page and one line-drawing by Nancy Nicholson. First and only edition, one of 200 copies printed. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to "Ivor Gurney, from Robert Graves" on the front wrapper verso. A superb association copy, linking two poets profoundly influenced by their experiences in the Great War. Until Gurney's collected letters were published in 1991, it was not clear whether the pair had ever met in person, though Gurney was known as an admirer of Graves and set several of his poems to music. They probably first met in the year Treasure Box was published, at the house of fellow veteran John Masefield at Boar's Hill, Oxford, where Graves was lodging with his wife while reading for a degree in English at St John's College. Treasure Box was his first book of poetry after demobilisation. Three years later Gurney was committed to the City of London Mental Hospital in Kent, and remained there until his death from tuberculosis in 1937. Higginson A4; see Carder, Songs of Graves's and Gurney's Friends, in Gravesiana: The Journal of the Robert Graves Society, vol. IV, no. 1 (2014). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Moon and Sixpence. A Novel.

      London: William Heinemann, 1919 - Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered and blocked in black. Housed in a custom green flat-back box. Tips bumped, contents lightly toned. An excellent copy in unusually bright cloth. First edition, first impression, first issue. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to Prince Albert I (1848–1922), "The Prince of Monaco with the author's affectionate regards. October 1919". A few years after this copy was inscribed, Maugham separated from his wife and settled permanently in the Riviera with Gerald Haxton, buying a villa on Cap Ferrat, where he entertained guests including Winston Churchill, Noel Coward, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, T. S. Eliot, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, and Virginia Woolf (Baxter, p. 147). The Moon and Sixpence, though ostensibly about Gaugin, "contains a great deal of autobiography: Maugham's protagonist Strickland leaves his wife and family and goes off to another country in order to live free of convention and to devote himself to his art" (Rothschild and Whiteman, p. 130).

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,

Darstellungsgröße ca. 36:24 cm, Blattgröße 45,8:29 cm. – Mit Wischspuren von Druckerschwärze in den Rändern, in den oberen Ecken Reste von Spuren einer alten Montierung. Literatur: Katalog: Neuerwerbungen". Hamburgischer Künstlerclub. Hamburgische Sezession. Hamburger Moderne, ZEBRA. Hrsg. Von Dr. Ina Ewers-Schultz. Hamburger Sparkasse, 2005, S. 42 mit Abb., S. 143 mehrere Abb.; Rump/Bruhns, der Neue Rump, Lexikon der bildenden Künstler Hamburgs. 2. Aufl. Neumünster/Hamburg, 2012, S. 173. Der Bildhauer, Zeichner und Graphiker Paul Hamann führte ein bewegtes Leben: von 1910-1914 besuchte er die Landeskunstschule in Hamburg bei dem Bildhauer Richard Luksch (1872-1936), in dieser Zeit bekam er die Gelegenheit, eine Assistenz bei Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) zu absolvieren. 1914 wurde er zum Kriegsdienst eingezogen und war als „Mappenzeichner" an die Ost- und Westfront geschickt. Nach dem Krieg ließ er sich als freischaffender Künstler in Hamburg nieder, 1919 gehörte er zu den Mitgründern der Künstlergemeinschaft „Hamburgische Sezession", der er bis zu ihrer Auflösung 1933 angehörte. Er war außerdem Mitglied verschiedener anderer Künstlervereinigungen in Hamburg und arbeitete als Lehrer an der Landeskunstschule. Er schuf abstrakte Holzschnitzereien, Kleinplastiken, Porträts und lebensgroße Skulpturen – meist weibliche Akte – für Gärten und Parks. Nur wenige seiner Frühwerke haben den Krieg überlebt. 1920 heiratete er seine Schülerin, die Malerin Hilde Guttmann (1898-1987). 1924 folgte die Gründung der deutsch-französischen Freundschaftsgruppe „Groupe artistique franco-allemand". 1926 entwickelte Hamann ein neues, schonenderes Verfahren zur Abnahme von Lebendmasken mit dem Ziel, damit eine Galerie von Porträtbüsten bedeutender Zeitgenossen zu schaffen. Am Ende seines Lebens war die Sammlung auf 96 Arbeiten angewachsen. Darunter befanden sich z. B. Lebendmasken von Bertold Brecht (1898-1956), Gustaf Gründgens (1899-1963), Jean Cocteau (1889-1963), Man Ray (1890-1976), Renée Sintenis (1888-1965) u.a. Bis 1926 lebte das Künstlerpaar abwechselnd in Hamburg und Worpswede, Dann zogen sie nach Berlin. Hamann hatte Kontakt zur „Novembergruppe", eine enge Verbindung bestand zu Ernesto de Fiori (1884-1945), Hermann Haller (1880-1950) und Renée Sintenis. Auf Einladung des Diplomaten Sir Harold Nicolson (1886-1968) hielt sich Paul Hamann mehrmals für längere Zeit in London auf. Wegen des jüdischen Hintergrundes ihrer Familien ging das Paar im April 1933 nach Paris, hier verkehrten sie im Kreis von Jean Cocteau und André Gide (1869-1951). 1936 zogen sie weiter nach London und eröffneten ein Atelier in West Hampstead. Hamann war Gründungsmitglied der „Free League of Culture (FDKB)" und Mitglied des „Hampstead Arts Council". 1940 wurde Paul Hamann, wie viele deutsche Flüchtlinge, auf der Isle of Man in ein Internierungslager gebracht. 1941 trennte sich das Ehepaar und Paul Hamann gründete in London eine private Kunstschule. 1950 wurde der Künstler englischer Staatsbürger. Von 1953 an besuchte er mehrmals seine Heimatstadt Hamburg und versuchte vergeblich, als Dozent an der Landeskunstschule zu arbeiten. Hamburg sprach ihm eine lebenslange Rente zu. Paul Hamann ist mit seinen Werken in der Londoner Nationalgallery, Berliner Nationalgalerie, der Hamburger Kunsthalle, im Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte und dem Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg vertreten.

        SVENSKARNE I TEXAS I ORD ACH BILD; Swedes in Texas in Words & Pictures 1835-1918 Volume I & II.; Ett Historiskt-Biografiskt Arbete Samladt och Utgivet af Ernest Severin. Redigeradt Och Utarbetadt af Dr. Alf. L. Scott Pastor T. J. Westerberg.

      Red. J. M. Ojerholm, 1919. Historic photographs, text in Swedish language. 604pp.; 605-1209pp. Two volume set. Maroon cloth boards faded, a few spots to fore-edge of both vols. Clean tight set, no names, no writing. Although the text is in Swedish, the 100's of photos, the organization by community, and the 1000's of names make this 2 volume set more than a very valuable rare Texas book; this book is an important resource for those interested in the settlement of early Texas by immigrants from Sweden. Swedes comprise one of the largest of European ethnicities in Texas. Swedish names abound throughout the state both in family and place names. Virtually every walk of life was filled by people of Swedish origins and they have been among the most successfully prosperous groups from the earliest days of their arrival. it is a useful tool for those wishing to trace the family history of their Swedish/Texan forebears. The first volume begins with a general history of Texas and the role of Swedes in forming the new nation/state. It goes on to describe the general business, agricultural, and social aspects of Texas. It is significant that foremost among the chapters are those about educational and religious practices. The communities covered in Volume 1 are: Austin, Palm Valley (Eastern Round Rock), New Sweden, Brushy (old Round Rock), Georgetown, Taylor, and Hutto. Volume 2 continues with coverage of the communities of: Decker, Ericsdale, Jonah, Elroy, Kenedy, Manor, E. Sweden, W. Sweden, Brady, Melvin, Ft.Worth, El Campo, Dallas, Waco, Lund, Type, Kimbro, Manda, Ganado, Crosby, Elgin, Louise, Galveston, Olivia, Temple, Swedonia, Bishop, Swensondale, Lyford, San Antonio, Houston. The final pages of this massive work are dedicated to showing the "Service Flags" of various communities of Swedes who served in the just-ended WWI. These include the rank, company, and location and years of service. GOOD.
