      Amsterdam: De Hooge Brug, 1919. First edition. Other. Mankes, Jan / Cachet, Lion. WIJDEVELD, H.TH. Wendingen. Maandblad voor bouwen en sieren van Architectura et Amicitia. 2de jaargang juli en augustus 1919. Houtsnijdersnummer/Houtsneden nummer. Omslag ontwerp R.N. Roland Holst.Citaat uit Wendingen:Bij de reeds vijf en twintig jaar oude houtsneden van de Bazel en Lauweriks door R.N. Roland Holst: ...?Nu de houtsnede in Holland, -en in Holland waarlijk niet alleen,- nieuwe triomfen viert, acht ik het een voorrecht er op te mogen wijzen, hoe voor vijf en twintig jaren reeds de toen nog jonge architecten de Bazel en Lauweriks de eersten waren, om de houtsnede naar haar eigen aard en naar haar welbegrepen karakter toe te passen. Deze bouwkundige met zoo groote begaafdheden voor ?t decoratieve element, uitstekende handwerkslieden in de eenvoudige beteekenis van ?t woord, rijke philosepheerende geesten bovendien, zij hebben een serie houtsneden gemaakt die niet gemakkelijk te overtreffen zal zijn, kleine meesterwerken zijn ?t van xylografische kunst. Bovendien bezitten deze houtsneden dat stille en zuivere, vaak juist die kunstuiting eigen, die nog onopgemerkt bleef, en alleen in eigen warmte zich koestert, en bevrediging vindt. En hoe vèr zij met dezen schoonen arbeid hun tijd vooruit waren, het blijkt nog uit een andere eigenschap hunner houtsneden. Zij toch waren voor vijf en twintig jaren, toen Holland nog alleen oog had voor de impressionistische schilderijkunst, de eersten (die naast en met den architect J.H. de Groot als theoreticus), de waarde van het geometrisch systeem onderzocht, begrepen en toegepast hebben...?

        Cinderella

      London: William Heinemann, [1919]. - The First of Arthur Rackham's Two Great Silhouette BooksEdition de Luxe, in the Original Dust Jacket[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. Cinderella. Retold by C.S. Evans and Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [1919].Edition de Luxe. Limited to 850 copies, numbered and signed by the illustrator, of which this is no. 502 of 525 copies on English handmade paper. Large quarto (11 3/16 x 8 15/16 inches; 284 x 225 mm.). 110, [1, printer?s imprint], [1, blank] pp. Mounted color frontispiece with color pictorial border and tissue guard. Three double-page silhouette drawings with color, one single-page silhouette drawing with color (not included in the trade edition), thirteen single-page silhouette drawings without color, and thirty-six silhouette drawings in the text. Title with color pictorial border.Original quarter tan buckram over green boards pictorially stamped and lettered in black on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Pictorial end-papers in green and white. A near fine copy with just the mildest of offsetting from some of the illustrations to the text. In the original green dust jacket printed in black to match the boards (jacket slightly chipped/torn at extremities and flap-folds)."Rackham gave his talk to on Silhouettes to the Art Workers' Guild in November 1919, the month in which Cinderella, the first of his two great silhouette books, was published. Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty differed from Rackhams' preceding books in relying almost wholly for their effect on silhouette. It is immediately clear that Rackham is a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humour by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going. Silhouette books, even with additional colours had lower production costs than their colour plate equivalents, and so were an attractive option both for publishers and customers in the uncertain post-war market." (James Hamilton. Arthur Rackham, A Biography, p. 188).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 49-50. Riall, pp. 134-135.Hamilton, p. 189

        THE SCOTTISH BEEKEEPER Volumes 1-79 Inclusive1919-2002

      The Scottish Beekeepers' Association, 1919. A virtually complete run from the inception of the magazine in 1919 through to 2002 i.e. 84 years: The Official Organ of the Scottish Beekeepers' Association.. The early issues are particularly rare and all with their original printed paper covers. Seemingly missing just five montly parts: - December 1951, Jan 1990, Feb & Nov 1991 and Dec. 2002 (we have had a very good look through and may have missed one or two other absent months, but this was all we found). The year 1964 is duplicated - one set of 12 months is bound and not particularly good examples and the duplicate set are loose in their original parts and very good. The first 30 or so years are tastefully and well bound in modern half black cloth with hand-marbled paper boards and cream end papers, a couple of years are sewn together but unbound (the spines of the bound volumes have not been blocked and the presence of a few sewn but unbound years indicates that the binding of this run was not completed - a few boards and sheets of matching marbled paper are also included in this set). Generally in very good condition, a few years in the late 1950s are somewhat worn to the edges, but these are the exceptions rather than the rule. It is unlikely that more than a handful of the early original monthly parts survive and therefore complete runs such as this are likely to be extremely scarce.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 4to.

        Verbannte [Exiles]

      Rascher & Cie. Zurich: Rascher & Cie.. 1919. The first German edition of Joyce's play Exiles and the first of his works to be published in translation in any language. One of 600 copies printed, Slocum & Cahoon D44. Joyce was living in Zurich at the time and he paid for the publication of this book out of his own pocket. This copy is inscribed by the author: "To J.R. [sic] Watson, Jun / with grateful regards / James Joyce / 8. ix. 1919." J.S. Watson, Jr. was at the time the co-owner of the modernist literary journal The Dial, which he bought from Martyn Johnson with his friend and fellow Harvard graduate, Scofield Thayer. Watson became president of the magazine and Thayer became its editor. The "grateful regards" refers to a gift of $300 that Watson had sent Joyce earlier in the year at the urging of Thayer, who had himself sent Joyce $700. These sums bailed Joyce out of dire financial straits, allowed him to settle a court case against him, and helped him support the theater group that he had associated with in Zurich, the English Players. In 1920 The Dial published a piece by Joyce, and in 1921 Thayer was one of his most ardent and influential supporters in the censorship case in New York against Ulysses and its publication in the Little Review. A notable association copy of Joyce's first translation. Pages browned and acidified, and covers strengthened at all the edges and spine with tape, with a hole cut in the spine for the title to show through. The first blank, on which the inscription appears, is also strengthened at the edges with tape. Fragile, and a candidate for de-acidification, but a significant association copy from a critical point in Joyce's life and career. . First Edition. Softcover.

        The Song of Arthur

      n.p.: n.p., n.d.. Typescript. Very good. Four volume typescript, approximately 8 inches by 10 inches. Individual original typewritten or carbon copy pages are bound with string into cloth and printed paper boards, with typewritten labels. Unpaginated; the four volumes are a little over 6 inches thick. Nearly every page has additions, corrections and strike-outs in either the author's hand, that of his daughter, or an unknown hand. Two copies of Fowler's 1919 forerunner work, 'Scenes from the Morte d'Arthur', written under his pseudonym Alan Seymour, have been cut up and incorporated into the typescript and also bear manuscript corrections. We understand that this set is one of a very small number--probably no more than five--of copies made up for submission to publishers, and may very well be one of only a couple of copies surviving. According to his biographer, Brian Stableford, 'The Song of Arthur' was his life's work. It was just finished when a bomb destroyed the manuscript in 1941. Wright spent much of the rest of his life recreating it. It was unpublished at his death in 1965. In 'The Song of Arthur', Wright intended to incorporate the whole body of Arthuriana into a single work of blank verse. Volume one commences with Book One, 'Merlin', and volume four concludes with Book XXIV, 'The Death of Arthur'. Some of the books are bound out of order, e.g., 'The Riding of Lancelot' (Book VIII) follows Book IX ('Tristam'). Light wear else in very good condition.

        One of Theodore Roosevelt&#39;s Last Signed Letters

      New York, 1919. Theodore Roosevelt signed this typed letter on 3 January 1919, three days before his death in the early morning of 6 January 1919. The short letter, on Kansas City Star letterhead, is to the father of Major Clyde E. Winterton expressing appreciation for sharing a letter from his son that described combat in the final days of World War One during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. Perhaps, Roosevelt&#39;s response was so brief as a result of his extreme emotional distress over the loss of his son, Quentin, in the war. The letter has been trimmed at the margins. An accompanying newspaper clipping notes that this letter from Roosevelt was one of the last that he wrote. A transcript of the letter that Winterton&#39;s father sent to Roosevelt is also included. (This letter was found laid in to a scrapbook kept by Winterton. The scrapbook is being sold separately.). Signed by Author. Letter. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

His first education was at Dalkeith and in Edinburgh, after which he was sent to the newly founded St John's Wood School of Art in London. His stay there was only brief, since on the death of his father he sought the guidance of Joseph Wolf. It was his commission in 1887 to illustrate Lord Lilford's Coloured Figures of the Birds of the British Isles, for which he painted some 268 watercolours, that established his reputation. He illustrated numerous sporting and natural history books, including his own [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Souvenir From Washington State Prison by Eugene Barnett [Cover from title: Souvenir From Washington State Penitentiary By 9414]

      Walla Walla: by the Author, n.d.. Eugene Barnett was one of eight I.W.W. members convicted of murder in the wake of the 1919 Centralia Massacre. He was released in 1931, having served a little less than eleven years of his twenty-five year sentence. During his incarceration, Barnett continued to agitate on behalf of the Wobblies, writing songs, poems and short stories in addition to producing hundreds of cartoons. Many of these are reproduced in this little hand-made book, self-published by Barnett in his spare hours, using the facilities of the prison print shop. Proceeds went home to support his ailing wife and children. & & That Alice Stone Blackwell, the prominent Boston feminist, would have been among Barnett&#39;s supporters comes as no great surprise, as the I.W.W. agitated far and wide in support of the Centralia prisoners, all eight of whom were at worst guilty of nothing more than self-defense, and more likely were simply random victims of vigilante justice. Surprise (or lack of it) aside, such relics of the first generation of Wobblies are in our experience vanishingly scarce, and this must rank as one of the choicest I.W.W. items we have handled.& & As the pamphlet has been catalogued under a variety of titles by WorldCat institutions, and there appear to have been at least three printings (one much later), it is difficult to state with certainty the number of OCLC holdings of this title. The correct number is probably two (UC Berkeley & Oregon); but possibly four (adding N&#39;western & WSU); other listings appear to be for a much later (1940) reissue under the variant title Nature&#39;s Woodland Bowers. No date (not later than 1928). 16mo (16.5cm x 12cm). Original pictorial wrappers, [60pp]; illus. [WITH] Original picture-postcard, reproducing on recto Barnett&#39;s original composition "Why Don&#39;t You Unite?," addressed in ink to Alice Stone Blackwell, with a note of 12 lines thanking her for her check and expressing hope that she received "the souvenir booklet;" dated June 5, 1928. Condition of pamphlet is Good, with edge-chipping to cover wraps; postcard Near Fine.
