        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'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'western & WSU); other listings appear to be for a much later (1940) reissue under the variant title Nature'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's original composition "Why Don'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.

        Industry and Trade, A Study of Industrial Technique and Business Organization; and of their Influence on the Conditions of Various Classes and Nations,

      - First Edition, xiv, 875pp thick large octavo, spine lettering a little dull [as in every copy] but a very good copy in original cloth, London, Macmillan, 1919. * Keynes, 80. "It represents the fruits of Marshall's learning and ripe wisdom on a host of different matters. The book is a mine rather than a railway like the Principles, a thing to quarry in and search for buried treasure. It contains the suggestions, the starting points for many investigations." J. M. Keynes in Memorials of Alfred Marshall (1925) * Industry and Trade, Marshall's second masterpiece, (after Principles of Economics) finally appeared in August 1919. It was a magisterial, largely factual, consideration of trends in the British and international economy and of future economic prospects. * "The present volume is a study of industry and trade; with special reference to the technical evolution of industry, and its influences on the conditions of man's life and work " Marshall's opening to preface. Within its comprehensive range it includes sections on industrial leadership; mass production; growth of factories; dominant tendencies of business organization; applications of scientific method; scientific management; marketing &c and gives an academic and scholarly overview of the theory (and history) behind the development of manufactures in Britain. * "Alfred Marshall was the dominant figure in British economics (itself dominant in world economics) from about 1890 until his death in 1924. His specialty was microeconomics - the study of individual markets and industries, as opposed to the study of the whole economy To make economics dynamic rather than static, Marshall used the tools of classical mechanics, including the concept of optimization. With these tools he, like neoclassical economists who have followed in his footsteps, took as givens technology, market institutions, and people's preferences. But Marshall was not satisfied with his approach. He once wrote that "the Mecca of the economist lies in economic biology rather than in economic dynamics." In other words, Marshall was arguing that the economy was an evolutionary process in which technology, market institutions, and people's preferences evolve along with people's behaviour." - New Palgrave.

Apropos this presentation, the two women saw eye-to-eye on French culture, both complaining that the Americans around them never seemed to "assimilate the intellectual side of French life" (Lee, page 273).

      1919. Paperback. 1. GAZE,HAROLD. THE SIMPLE JAGGAJAY. Melbourne, Aukland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington and London: Whitcombe & Tombs Limited, [1919]. 4to (7 3/4 x 10 1/4"), wraps, color plate on cover, string ties, mend on title, slight bit of foxing, near Fine. Illustrated by Gaze with 2 tipped- in color plates (plus color plate on cover repeated in-text), 1 tipped-in black and white plate and 8 pen and ink drawings in-text (one full page) all featuring a strange animal called a Jaggajay (a cousin of the Billibonga Bird), an Alligator and an elf named Mite Merry. The story is told in verse. This is one of 3 titles in the Mite Merry Series. Gaze was born in New Zealand and except for a short stint at art school in London, he was largely self-taught. He eventually moved to Pasadena where he did some work for the Disney Studio. Although he didn't illustrate a large number of books his work is distinctive and wonderful. Holden in Golden Age p. 80 notes about the books in this series that "by Australian standards these titles were milestones in the history of children's book production. Their large quarto format and pleasing typography and layout were indicative of the publisher's understandable enthusiasm and belief that a major new talent had arrived." Marcie Muir notes that "After Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, the artist who dominated the fairy genre in Australian children's books was Harold Gaze " (Hist. Aust. Child. Bks. p77). See Muir Bib. 2699 This is a great copy of a rare book.

      London: Welbecson 10 sm. folio volumes filled with biographies and fine photogravures of famous horses. In uniform bindings of brown cloth w/ white cloth spines & teg. All have lightly sunned spines and moderately foxed text & plates. The 1st volume (1919-1923), #198/600 copies, has a soiled and spotted spine, fraying at top. The 1924 volume is called volume 1, and the rest are numbered successively. #716/1000. 1925: 583/1000. Spots on spine, a little bowing to boards. 1926: spots on spine, covers soiled, and the brown cloth is separating from the white in the rear. #423/1000. 1927: spots on spine. #156/1000. 1928: both coveras bowed, spots on front cover. #371/1000. 1929: #124/1000.

The photography, and the printing of the photos, is quite excellent. Each photo-plate has an onionskin interleaf.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Illus. by W.A. Rouch photos.

        Some British Ballads

Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co. Ltd, n.d. [1919].First trade edition, later issue. Quarto (10 x 7 3/8 in; 257 x 187 mm). 170, [2] pp. Sixteen full color plates mounted on gray paper with tissue guards, twenty-four black and white drawings. Publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettered.

Loosely inserted between two of the preliminary leaves is the original Constable & Co., request card which has left a small rectangular mark on the two facing pages."Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures . one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920)."Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book—Mr. Rackham’s paintings or the ballads themselves" (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).

        Exposition du Systême du Monde.Paris: De l'Imprimerie du Cercle-Social, l'An IV [1796]. First edition.

      A very copy, with the very rare errata leaves, of Laplace's classic work on the origin and formation of the solar system in which he first stated his celebrated 'nebular hypothesis.' <br/><br/>&#10087;Sparrow, Milestones of Science 123; Honeyman 1919.<br/><br/> "One of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed." (DSB). "An elegant, non-mathematical classic on astronomy. It is in this work that Laplace introduced one of his most notable contributions (although he himself did not take it very seriously at first) -- the so-called nebular hypothesis, which provided a conjectural account of the origin of the solar system. This remained through the 19th century the most widely accepted view on the subject" (PMM 252). <br/><br/> "The two-volume work consists of five books. Book I begins with what any attentive observer may see if he will open his eyes to the spectacle of the heavens on a clear night with a view of the whole horizon. Book II (...) sets out the 'real' motions of planets, satellites, and comets and gives the dimensions of the solar system. Book III is a verbal précis of the laws of motion as understood in eighteenth-century rational mechanics, with special reference to astronomy and hydrostatics. In Book IV, Laplace in effect summarized his own work in gravitational mechanics. (...) Only Book V contains material that Laplace had not written up in technical form or presupposed. It gives an overview of the history of astronomy and concludes with the speculation since called the nebular hypothesis and another on the nature of the universe in outer space". (DSB). <br/><br/> As mentioned in the 2004 Christie's sale of the library of Jean-Louis Mosès: "A pair of errata leaves was added to very few copies [not present in the Mosès-Barrillot copy]". Both of these errata leaves are present in our copy. We can find no copy in the auction records having the errata leaves.. 8vo (203 x 125 mm), two volumes bound together in one contemporary French half calf with gilt spine, red and black morocco labels, and vellum corners, initials to title and old/contemporary inscription to verso, a fine copy, pp. [1-7] 8-314, [4:index], [2:errata]; [1-5] 6-312, [4:index], [2:errata]

        The Russian Committee for Escaped Military Officers in Rotterdam. 1918-1919

      Rotterdam: , 1919. Landscape quarto. Cord-tied in the original letter-press card wraps. 41 mounted original photographs, neat calligraphic captions in Cyrillic. Wraps a little rubbed, soiled and spotted but sound, photographs with some marginal fade or oxidation, but overall very good. No other copy traced, the letter-press cover-title suggests a published item, the manuscript captioning a very small-scale issue. Fascinating visual record of relief services for Russian officer refugees in Holland. By the end of the First World War thousands of Russian prisoner-of-war escapees and deserters were scattered in cheap lodging-houses throughout Rotterdam and Schiedam, many with very little desire to be repatriated. The images collected here show a well-organized attempt to provide comprehensive assistance for them. Group portraits show two of the committees for the assessment of cases, with a number of individuals identified in the captioning; there are also individual portraits of the head of the committee, the secretary, the heads of the Economic and Accommodation Departments. Other images show the processing of new arrivals, undergoing interview and receiving an issue of civilian clothing; there are views of the boot and clothing workshops, the dentist&#39;s surgery, the doctor&#39;s office and emergency room, the dining room, temporary church, the classrooms of the secondary school, the blacksmith&#39;s shop and the carpentry, electronics and mechanical engineering facilities. An extremely intriguing glimpse into relief efforts in the aftermath of WWI.

      1919. A Story Between Two Notes. Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1919. Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition, first state. Because no American periodical would serialize it, THE ARROW OF GOLD was published there about four months before (and lacking many of Conrad&#39;s last-minute changes made in time for) the London edition. This copy is in the first state (actually comprised of the identical first and second printings), with only 20 books listed opposite the title page -- THE SHADOW LINE having been omitted; the second state (comprised of the identical third and fourth printings) lists all 21 and also has several minor alterations in the text.~Included is the very scarce dust jacket (scarcer, in our opinion, than the jackets for several earlier American Conrad titles such as VICTORY and WITHIN THE TIDES). The jacket is unusual on two counts: it is pictorial (well... a picture of a red arrow), unlike all but one of the other DP&Co Conrad jackets; and it includes on its verso a biographical sketch of Conrad (including a full-length portrait).~The volume is in near-fine condition, with the merest hint of shelf-wear. The jacket is good-to-very good (chipped at top and bottom of the spine, affecting "TH AR" at the top and with a few internal reinforcements; the top edge of the jacket intrudes into the author&#39;s name on the front panel, as we have seen on other examples.

Dark-green buckram, gold-stamped title label on spine (extemities rubbed, edges bumped), bound with other publications of vol. 71, nos. 1 and 2. Provenance: Gerald F. Fitzgerald; New York University, General library (old bookplate to inner cover, small ink stamp to general title of vol. 71). A good ex-library copy, without library stamps to Goddard&#39;s publication. ---- <br><br> DSB V, 433; Honeyman sale 1521; Van Riper, Rockets and Missiles, 29. - First edition. "Goddard published his first major work in 1919. A sixty-nine-page treatise titled &#39;On a Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes.&#39; It was a serious technical study of how two-stage, solid-propellant rockets could be used to lift scientific instruments high into Earth&#39;s atmosphere, and ended with brief discussions of liquid-propellant rockets and the possibility of sending a rocket to the moon. Funded and published by the Smithsonian Institution, Goddard&#39;s pamphlet-sized work oozed respectability. The argument was dense, the writing dry, and the pages studded with equations and tables of data. It was, in other words, a model of respectable scientific writing, and it addressed an important scientific problem: how to gather atmospheric data from altitudes higher than the seven miles balloons could reach" (Van Riper)..
