        Set of 93 large silver gelatin print photographs, striking and unusual views centering around Peking and a few in the Gobi Desert, taken and compiled by an American Marine

      Beijing, 1919. Peking and Gobi Desert Large Silver Gelatin Photographs Lively Funeral Procession Executed Criminals Horse Marines Mounted Detachment 1919 Beijing, 1919. Set of 93 large silver gelatin print photographs, striking and unusual views centering around Peking and a few in the Gobi Desert, taken and compiled by an American marine serving in China under Major E.L. Bigler as part of the famous "Horse Marines." Photographs measure approximately 14 x 8 cm, with exception of two smaller photographs measuring approximately 11 x 6,5 cm, and two panoramic views measuring 29 x 9 cm, mounted to black cardstock leafs, with manuscript captions. Leafs tattered and chipped, otherwise in Very Good Condition. Highlights of Peking, including two exceptional wide angle landscape views, include foreboding structures and great icons dating to antiquity, ceremony and tradition related to death, tangible symbols of tradition and spirituality, public death sentencing and display, royal palaces, images of extreme poverty, marble carved monuments, and the remaining presence of foreigners following the First World War. In addition, some rare scenes captured far in the Gobi Desert include nomadic Mongolians and their yurt encampment. Finally, five (5) graphic photographs show capital punishment for petty crimes, including a decapitated head hanging in a tree, and one unsettling war scene of an executed soldier who appears to have been scalped. Some of the images feature, among other things: • A spectacular and lively funeral procession • Statues on the road to the Ming Tombs • Marco Polo Bridge constructed in the Jin Dynasty • Views of Summer Palace • Ruins of the Old Summer Palace • Temple of Heaven • A caravan of white mourning carts struggling on a muddy road • The Great Wall • The Five Pagoda temple in Western Hills • Locals on Hatamen Street • Statues of pagan deities • The tomb of a Tibetan Buddhist Lama • The Austrian Legation Headquarters (Austrian Consulate in Beijing) • A winter scene in the Northern Hills The photograph and caption of Major Epamindondas Lawrence Bigler (1870-1963), China Marines serves to date the images quite precisely. He served twice in China, the first time as 1st Lieutenant from at least 1910 to 1912, and the second time, after achieving the rank of Major for the Peking Horse Marines, serving in Peking for a short period in 1919. (The captions in the album title him as "Major Bigler"). Further research is warranted to ascertain if he was then posted elsewhere in China. Please Note: Scenes of Decapitation Cannot be Shown Here If you would like to see additional images please contact us through the template and we will send you a link. Serious Inquires Only Please . Very Good.

        The War Poems

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. Small octavo. Original red cloth, printed labels to spine and front board. Spine faded, and title label tanned and slightly scuffed, ends and corner gently bumped, faint fading around board edges but still some vividness to the cloth sides, mild toning to some leaves, but on the whole a sound copy in very good condition. First edition, first impression, signed by Sassoon in pencil on the title page, of Sassoon's key poetical statement on the war. This collection includes many of the author's war poems as well as 12 previously unpublished pieces. Signed copies of this definitive title are, for some reason, very scarce indeed - we have only ever handled one. This copy comes from the collection (though without ownership inscription) of Rolf O. Barber, a schoolteacher at Oundle who tutored Sassoon's son George. He developed a friendship with the poet and possessed a number of signed and inscribed Sassoon books.

        Life: The Seventeenth Grove Play of the Bohemian Club. SIGNED

      San Francisco: The Bohemian Club, 1919. First edition. Wraps. Very Good. 8vo, printed stapled wrappers, pp. 60, [3]. Signed on the front flyleaf by Harry Leon Wilson, Domenico Brescia, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Warren S. Palmer. Signed at the rear of the book by William H. Smith, Joseph S. Thompson, Xavier Martinez, James Hopper, Sam Hume, Antoine de Vally, George Sterling, Ulderico Marcelli, Edwin Henry Lemare, and two others we have been unable to identify. Wraps tanned and creased, two short tears at the spine, about very good. / In the summer of 1919 Sergei Rachmaninoff was invited by his friend Sir Henry Heyman to accompany him to the Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, California, and to attend the closing festivities of the Bohemian Club's encampment there. The weekend was marked by a Friday night "entertainment," directed by William H. Smith, and on Saturday, the final night of the season, the more formal Grove Play, "Life," written by Harry Leon Wilson and with music by Domenico Brescia (featuring what might well be the first time a set of chromatic cowbells was used as a symphony instrument). To commemorate the event, the playscript and musical notes were printed privately for members, with a complete cast list for both the Grove Play and for the "Cremation of Care," the pageant that had opened the season several weeks earlier. (The "Cremation of Care" would ultimately become standardized, but in 1919 it was written by Charles Caldwell Dobie and featured music by Edwin H. Lemare). / The signatories include novelist and playwright Wilson (he would go on to popularize the term "flapper" in his novel BUNKER BEAN), the author of the play; -- Brescia, the composer, best known in posterity for his chamber music compositions, who would return to the Grove with a second production in 1926; -- Rachmaninoff, distinguished guest; -- Palmer, President of the Bohemian Club and General Manager of the Northwest Pacific Railroad; -- Smith, long-time member and frequent director of Bohemian Grove productions; -- Thompson, president of the Pacific Electric Manufacturing Corporation, who would write the 24th Grove Play ("Wings"), produced in 1925; -- Martínez, a Mexican-born artist and bohemian who would be named to represent California in the Hall of Fame at the World's Fair of 1940; -- Hopper, a French-born writer, novelist, and college football coach (he led Nevada to its first-ever win over Stanford, in 1900), who was also a close friend of Jack London's, famously contributing his football jersey for use as a flag on the Snark for one notable voyage out of San Francisco Bay; -- Hume, a theater technician who had been the organizer of the first exhibition of stagecraft in the United States; -- de Vally, Belgian-born San Francisco voice teacher and recording artist, director of the San Francisco Grand Opera Company, and president of the SF Musicians' Club; -- Sterling, celebrated in Northern California as one of the greatest American poets (his poem "The Wine of Wizardry" has been called "the greatest poem ever written by an American author"), a significant figure in bohemian literary and artistic circles, and in the development of the artists' colony at Carmel (like Hopper, he was also friendly with Jack London; he was additionally mentored by Ambrose Bierce, and would himself later mentor Robinson Jeffers); -- Marcelli, Ecuadorean-born composer and conductor, founder of the Rico Marcelli Symphony Orchestra, who wrote six Grove Plays, the first in 1920, the last in 1961, and who, as a conductor, made his mark leading the orchestras in silent film houses for Tivoli and Grauman throughout the teens and 20s; -- and Lemare, British-born organist and composer (he composed the Friday night event), called "the most highly regarded and highly paid organist of his generation" as well as "one of the most important composers of the late Romantic English-American Organ School." A scarce and attractive piece of ephemera commemorating a highlight from the early days of the Club.

      New York: E.P. Dutton and Company. Hardcover. 357 pages. Index. Twenty-one black and white illustrations including a tissue-protected black and white frontis portrait of author. Seven maps. "In the following pages I speak of Russian affairs with the experience of an observer who has lived from early boyhood among the Russian people and has shared with them their joys and sorrows... Since her collapse, Russia has become the focus of social unrest throughout the world. Bolshevism - a foe more deadly to our civilization than German Militarism - cannot be effectively combated unless we understand the circumstances of its origin and working, indissolubly connected with the so-called Russian Revolution - a Revolution that has still to justify its name... The questions that have been put to me so often will rise to the readers' lips - What is Bolshevism and Why did the Russians succumb to its influence?. This book answers these questions in full." - from Preface. Text divided into the following sections: Slavdom, The Tatars, and Autocracy; Democracy, 'Socialism,' and 'Freedom'; Russia at War; Kornilov and the Cossacks. Prior owner's details, dated 1919, upon front free endpaper else unmarked. Small hole in cloth near top of joint between backstrip and front board. Binding intact. A sound copy. . Good. 1919.

Nacque con l?'intento di essere ?"letteraria?", in polemica contro ogni avanguardia, con una ricerca dello stile che proponeva in Leopardi prosatore il modello di riferimento.. Delle particolari iniziative vanno ricordate: ?"Il testamento letterario di Giacomo Leopardi - Pensieri dello Zibaldone scelti, annotati e ordinati in VI capitoli da La Ronda?" (mar.-apr.-mag. 1921); una discussione intorno al Pascoli, provocata dal giudizio riduttivo di Benedetto Croce, cui il periodico sostanzialmente si associa (cfr. nov. e dic. 1919, con interventi di Cecchi, Bacchelli, Gargiulo, Angelini, Soffici, Pietrobono); la pubblicazione di ?"Scritti inediti?" di C.
