        Autograph letter signed in full to the noted Czech-born Austrian architect Adolf Loos

      1/2 page text to recto with floor plan (by Loos?) in pencil to verso. Small octavo, 215 x 132 mm. Dated Mödling, near Vienna, February 7, 1919. Schoenberg's name and address handstamped in purple ink to upper left corner. In German (with translation). Schoenberg suggests an answer to the "call" of the French writer Henri Barbusse for his pacifist "Clarté" movement. He suggests times that he would be available for a possible meeting: "Dear Herr Loos, in my opinion we should react to Henri BarbusseÂ’s call that was in the papers of February 5. Ideally, the three of us: you, Kraus, and I. Would you like to discuss that with me?..." Creased at folds and overall; hinged at upper edge with archival tape. . Unpublished (except for the incipit on the website of Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna). Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a famous early modern architect. “Kraus” is probably a reference to the writer and journalist Karl Kraus (1874-1936), a friend of both Loos and Schoenberg. Henri Barbusse (1873-1935) was a French writer, quite famous in his time; he founded the “Clarté” movement in 1919 together with Romain Rolland.

        NITRO [Cover Title] / "From One Good Friend to Another" [Title Page]

      Nitro, WV, (ca. 1919). Very good. Oblong 12mo. Black cloth album with painted titles. 45 leaves containing more than 100 photographs adhesive mounted both recto and verso. Many captioned. Light shelf/edge wear, toning to a few images, lettering of title faded, one or two photos loose. Binding started, but sound. Very good. A small but remarkable photo album from the first year or two of the founding of Nitro, WV. A true "Boom Town," Nitro was built from nothing with a government mandate to produce much-needed gunpowder for AmericaÂ’s WWI mobilization after it became clear America faced a severe production shortage. Congress passed the "Deficiency Appropriations Act" on October 6, 1917, part of which ultimately provided for the construction of Nitro. The name was selected by the Ordnance Department and referred to a chemical (nitro-cellulose) used in production of the gunpowder. Ground was broken in Dec. 1917, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), less than a year later the war had ended, and so too had the need for Nitro's extensive production facilities. By the end of 1918, the plant had been declared surplus and by the end of the following year the entire site (including the town) had been transferred to the Charleston Industrial Corporation. The album here offered details this transition from war effort to private enterprise and reveals a close and vibrant community. Images include homes (both interior and exterior), community events (picnics, sales, etc.), construction, transportation, schools, recreation, and the surrounding landscape. Postwar optimism abounds both in the subjects of the photos as well as in the warm, casual tone of the captions. A rare slice of Americana at the dawn of the Jazz Age.

        My Man Jeeves

      London, George Newnes, Limited, [1919]., 1919. FIRST EDITION, first impression [Butler and Tanner Printers]. Octavo, pp. 251 + 2 ads. Publisher's red cloth, titled and decorated in black to spine. A used copy showing some acceptable wear and soiling, cheap paper toned as usual, bookplate to pastedown, stained to inside gutters. Remains a respectable copy. 'My Man Jeeves' introduced the world to affable, indolent Bertie Wooster and his precise, capable valet, Jeeves. Some of the finest examples of humorous writing found in English literature are woven around the relationship between these two men of very different classes and temperaments. Where Bertie is impetuous and feeble, Jeeves is cool-headed and poised. McIlvaine A22a

Zu Jahodas Tod ließ Kraus ein Gedicht zu seinem Andenken erscheinen; der Verlag wurde vom Sohn Martin Jahoda bis nach dem Tode Kraus' weitergeführt.

The Mellstock Edition, a deluxe edition limited to 500 copies signed by the author on a preliminary leaf in Volume 1. Initially discussed as early as July 1914, the start of World War I halted production and the actual publication did not begin until December 1919.

At Stinsford his grandfather was a founder of the church "quire," the group of musicians who played for services; the churchyard contains the remains of both Hardy's wives, Emma Gifford Hardy and Florence Dugdale Hardy, as well as Hardy's heart, the rest of his body having been interred in the Poets' Corner at Westminster Abbey.

Besides the many fine examples of famous prints, there are many which have never previously come under my observation -- a fact which in a measure attests to their rarity.". First Edition.

        Photograph Album Documenting American Industrial Espionage in Siberia, 1918-1919

      Siberia, Russia, 1919. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album appears to have been prepared by a YMCA worker and contains 20 pages of 81 3"x4" black and white photographs. All are captioned. Bound with a leather thong, no cover. Very little wear to the album pages. All of the photographs are in very nice shape. Following the Bolshevik revolution during World War One and Russia's subsequent peace treaty with the Central Powers, America's access to its only significant source of platinum, a metal urgently needed for the production of airplane engines and "liberty" motors, was cut off. The Soviets confiscated all of the known platinum stocks within the country and major black market supplies soon became prohibitively expensive. To fill the shortfall, the Commerce Department arranged for a somewhat shadowy American fur trader operating from a business office in Riga, George L. Preston, to receive a "commission" as a Colonel in the Red Cross and lead a humanitarian mission to provide YMCA supplies to members of the Czech Legion who were moving west along the Trans-Siberian Railway. In actuality, Preston had heard of the platinum requirement and suggested to the government that he would be able to obtain what was needed from as yet unconfiscated stocks from small mines in the Ural Mountains as well as a secret stock-pile at Ekaterinberg (now Sverdlosk) that were in areas controlled by the anti-Bolshevik New Siberian Army. Preston assumed control of the relief train in Vladivostok and traveled west along the railroad avoiding both Soviet and German agents while exchanging either cash or cans of Boston baked beans for the precious metal. When the train reached Ekaterinberg, Preston was able to make his final surreptitious purchase from a local banker. Throughout the trip, Preston was hailed for his humanitarian work and treated as an important dignitary. He served as the reviewing officer for Czech and Siberian parades, and at Ekaterinberg, he was one of the first westerners to be shown the house where Czar Nicholas and his family had been executed. While at Ekaterinberg, Preston was secretly informed his real mission had been discovered and that the Soviets were planning traps to capture the train. Hurriedly, the train returned to Vladivostok where Preston turned over the platinum to the Consul General who in turn transferred it to the Admiral in charge of the U.S. fleet in the port. Preston booked passage on another vessel to the United States and upon arriving, traveled to Washington where he filed his official report. Immediately after, he traveled to his home in Campello, Massachusetts to visit his family. Within 3 hours of his arrival there, Preston mysteriously died, purportedly of exhaustion and stress. Photographs include: Colonel Preston and the staff of the "American Mission; Soldiers of the Czech Legion and the New Siberian Army; Stations, facilities, and bridges along the Trans-Siberian Railway; The relief train; " A Czech Legion armored train; Bolshevik prisoners; A pet brown bear; Refugees and peasants; The house where Czar Nicholas and his family were executed; and much more. Certainly unique and exceptionally scarce.

        THE ARROW OF GOLD

      1919 - A Story Between Two Notes. London: T. Fisher Unwin, (1919). Original dark green cloth, with dust jacket. First English Edition of this novel set in 1870s Marseille, a port Conrad knew well from his earliest days as a seaman (in France 1874-1879) -- thus English was not his second language but his third. The English edition of this tale was published four months after (and including corrections made by Conrad too late for) the American edition. Unwin published three of Conrad's first four books (1895-98), but then no others until this one -- which explains why only those four works are cited on the rear panel of the ARROW jacket.~This copy does not have the "A" in the p. 67 headline (other copies have the "A" present or slipping). This volume is just about fine (a hint of wear at the spine-head); the quite uncommon dust jacket is very good, with some edge-wear at the extremities and some browning of the spine, but with NO restoration of any kind.

        Sweden's Laureate: Selected Poems of Verner Von Heidenstam [Signed / Ingraverat]

      Yale University Press, 1919, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: very good, First editionA Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (some surface rubbing to the boards, rubbing to the board corners, bump and minor wrinkling to the upper leading corner of each board), in a Very Good example of the scarce dust jacket (modest edge wear and a few small edge tears, fold line at the bottom of each panel and the spine tail, tiny closed concertina tear and nearby tiny indent, light sunning to the spine, some foxing), SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM on the title page and ALSO SIGNED BY CLARE BOOTHE LUCE on the front free endpaper. Swedish Poet and Novelist Verner Von Heidenstam, known for the joy of life shown in his prose and poetry, won the 1916 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his significance as the leading representative of a new era in our literature". The leader of his generation of Swedish Poets, and ranked among the masters of Swedish Literature, von Heidenstam regenerated Swedish Poetry, abandoning the then-prevalent realistic school of Swedish Poetry and its gloomy works, and introducing imagination and the value of appreciating beauty for its own sake. Thus, at the ceremony held to present the Prize to von Heidenstam, the noted Swedish critic Sven Söderman stated: "In the constellation of original artists who regenerated Swedish poetry at the end of the last century, Verner von Heidenstam was the most brilliant star. He was the leader of the generation of poets of 1890; he was the first to set forth in theory and also to realize in his works the ideal of new Swedish generations."Söderman also noted that von Heidenstam's first poetic work, "Vallfart och vandringsÃ¥r" (1888) ["Pilgrimage: The Wander Years"], "...marked an epoch in the modern literature of Sweden. In truth it gave the final blow to the realistic school, enemy of all imagination, which was then dominant in Sweden and which since 1880 had darkened literature with its sadness and its gloom. This was the first manifestation of a new poetry in which free individuals, led only by the logic of their imagination, worshipped beauty for its own sake. " (The book herein described includes work from "Vallfart och vandringsÃ¥r" (1888) as well as from "Dikter" (1895) [Poems] and from "Nya Dikter" (1915) [New Poems], presenting approximately one-fourth of the work presented in those three volumes.) The interior of the book is in superior condition with the leaves being quite clean and bright. A number of leaf-pairs remain uncut at the bottom, indicating that the book likely has not been read -- certainly not in its entirety. Having a notable Provenance, this copy belonged to editor, playwright, journalist, ambassador, socialite, and U.S. Congresswoman (representing Connecticut) Clare Boothe Luce and carries her elegant possession signature to the front free endpaper. Signed copies of von Heidenstam's work in any language and in any edition are extraordinarily scarce. In our experience, his signed books are among the scarcest of all those of the Nobel Prize in Literature winners. On our most recent check, the auction records revealed no signed copies of Verner von Heidenstam's works in any language appearing at auction in the past 39 years, beyond which the records do not go. A Very Good copy of this quite scarce assemblage of Verner von Heidenstam's works, being only the second book of von Heidenstam's work to be published in English translation, having an excellent Provenance, and having been SIGNED BY THE PRIOR OWNER, CLARE BOOTHE LUCE and, most notably, SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE.
