        Omstandig en waaragtig verhaal van veele gepleegde en nooit gehoorde diefstallen: als voornamentlyk aan de zeer beruchte goude tafel, nevens veele hoog-gewaardeerde oudheden en dierbaare sieraaden, van aloude tyden af in 't Hooge Autaar van St. Michiels kerke te Lunenburg geplaatst en bewaart, als mede aan veele andere der voornaamste kerken te Hamburg, Bronswyk enz. en een groot aantal huisbraaken, listige en behendige ontsluiting van welgesloote huizen en gewelfde kelders, allerwegen in Duitsl.

      4°, (8)+377+(17) pag., Geillustreerd met frontispice en 17 prenten waaronder 3 uitslaand. Originele half leren band. Goed exemplaar. C0019."Buijnsters pag. 15-16 en 35 (noemt per abuis 20 prenten); Heinrich Conrad, Das Juden-Buch des Magisters Hosmann, Stuttgart 1919; Buisman 1677 (noemt per abuis 20 prenten); Scheepers 902; Waller 1242. Hosmann was predikant (Consistorial- und Stadt-prediker) in Zell, de residentie van de hertogen van Brunswijk-Lüneburg. Centraal in zijn boek staat de brutale kerkroof uit maart 1698 waarbij de gouden tafel (het gouden hoogaltaar) in de Michaelskerk te Lüneburg werd gekraakt. Het was de meestercoup van een stel boeven onder leiding van Nickel List alias jonker Johann von der Mosel die al lang Neder-Saksen onveilig gemaakt hadden. In zijn in 1700 te Braunschweig en Hamburg verschenen 'Fürtreffliches Denck-mahl der Göttlichen Regierung bewiesen an den uhralten höchstberühmten Antiquität des Klosters zu S.Michaelis in Lüneburg' beschrijft Hosmann de speurtocht naar de dieven, hun arrestatie, proces en berechting. Als predikant was hij belast met de stervensbegeleiding van de gevangenen en behalve als een detective roman leest het verhaal ook als een getuigenis van Gods wrekende almacht. Een aantal bendeleden was joods ( een van hen Jonas Meyer ) en als zwarte draad loopt de jodenhaat van Hosmann door het verhaal. In deze Nederlandse vertaling zijn de versjes onder de portretten getekend D. Schelte, Amsterdams dichter en juwelier (1639-1715). Buisman suggereert dat hij wellicht ook de vertaler is. Het boek is een van de vroegste Nederlandstalige misdaadverhalen in proza. Herdrukken zijn niet verschenen. De illustraties betreffen vooral portretten van de dieven (waaronder meerdere joden), maar ook een grote prent van het galgenveld van Zell met de restanten van 14 terechtgestelden en 2 platen van de zogenaamde gouden tafel. In het voorwoord deelt de uitgever Hendrik Schelte nog mee dat hij een register aan het boek heeft toegevoegd met de namen en ontdekte echte namen van de misdadigers zodat rechters in Nederland in de toekomst konden nazien wat bepaalde booswichten die hun in handen vielen, voor die tijd al hadden misdaan."

        Diary of an American soldier in France.

      1919 - Manuscript in ink. Portrait photograph laid down to rear pastedown. 16mo. Original red straight-grained cloth, rubbed and soiled. 72pp. 21 July, 1918 - 11 April, A laconic and ill-tempered account of service overseas by Sgt. Emil A. Ruettger of Indiana. Ruettger?s daily records are often darkly humorous and focus predominantly on the bad weather, ?damn poor chow? and the letters he writes to and receives from his sweetheart, Olive Keyser (?O.K.?), who is likely the young lady standing beside him in the tipped in photograph at the rear of the diary. His reports of daily life give an insight into the attitudes of Allied Forces at this stage in the war, sailing from Southampton to Le Havre and then travelling by train or foot towards Western Front, where in early November he joins the action in the Battle of the Sambre: ?Tues 5. Heavy fighting. Nothing to eat. Two Gerry planes downed.? Ruettger doesn?t think much of Europe as he passes through towards the front line: ?Strange country. Women look wild? ?Tasted wine, damn sour. Eats are few.? And even the proclamation of ?Gee! Wha [sic] a pleasure to live in peace. I hope we move back? of November 11th 1918 is quickly followed days later by ?Cleaning this filthy town of manure human and cattle. To hell with France.? Ruettger?s consistent references to Miss Kayser makes for a touching narrative; his fear that ?Haven?t heard from Olive. Wonder if she is sick ordropped me. Gee hope not? were unfounded as the 1920 census tells us that Emil and Olive were married shortly after he returned to the United States. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM CONTAINING NEARLY TWO HUNDRED SIXTY ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS, REAL PHOTO AND COLOR-PRINTED POSTCARDS DOCUMENTING A UNITED STATES RADIO SERVICE TRIP TO ALASKA FROM MARE ISLAND TO SEWARD IN 1919]

      [Alaska, 1919. 215 silver gelatin photographs, varying sizes, plus 15 photo post cards and 28 color printed post cards. Oblong quarto. Black leatherette album. Light scuffing to covers and light edge wear. Photos mounted directly on black card stock. Several photos loose, some mild fading to a few images. Very good. A fascinating photograph album compiled by a U.S. Navy engineer, a member of the service expedition to the American naval radio stations in Cordova and Seward in Alaska in the summer and autumn of 1919. The party travelled to Alaska from the Mare Island naval base near San Francisco on board U.S.S. Saturn and at first worked on construction and renovations of the Mile 7 (Eyak) and Mile 14 (Hanscom) naval radio stations, parts of the Cordova Station located along the route of the Copper River and Northwestern Railway. After that the working party constructed cottages at the Naval Radio Station in Seward on the Kenai Peninsula. The first photograph in the album is a group portrait of the members of the "Radio Party at Childs Glacier" near Cordova, taken by a prominent Alaskan photographer and a resident of Cordova, Eric A. Hegg (1867-1947). These are followed by a series of views of the Cordova radio stations at Mile 7 (several general views, including the flooded grounds, a bridge washout, the surrounding mountains, a nearly waterfall, a flume for domestic water, and Lake Eyak) and at Mile 14 (including a work party, wood crib and radio towers, a picture of the station taken from the top of one of the towers, several views of cottage construction and completed houses, and the engine and operation buildings). Several photos show the Copper River and Northwestern Railroad: a trestle bridge at Cordova, another bridge at Childs Glacier (with distant and close up views), the railway out of Cordova, the party on a train at Mile 50, and others. There are also views of Cordova (of 1st Street, the wharf, Cordova Bay, the group members "in front of Kenney Holdens in Cordova"), McKinley Lake, Scott Glacier, and Sheridan Glacier. Photos of the expedition in Seward begin with a large group portrait of the party members taken in the city. A number of images depict the naval radio station (including a general view of the grounds, a closer view of the radio tower, and different stages of construction dated 24th of September, and 1, 3rd, and 17th of October 1919). Other images show views of Seward and its environs, "Haymaking in Alaska", a copper mine in Latouche, cabins near Roosevelt Lake, U.S.S. Saturn near Seward, and the party members on board. Included in these are photos showing the "black gang" of the ship, and party members having meals, hiking, doing laundry, crossing a glacier stream, and watching a boxing match; several members are named in captions. Also included are a number of photos of the Alaska Railroad, its engines and railcars, and portraits of the group onboard. Real photo postcards depict a part of Prince William Sound, the wreck of S.S. Olympia from December 1910, two winter scenes in Cordova and Childs Glacier by John E. Thwaites, the Mariposa wreck, views of Cordova and Mile 7 by C.F. Rosswog, and of Seward. Color printed postcards show views of Seward, Petersburg, the Treadwell Mines, Skagway, Juneau, Valdez, and the Muir Glacier. A thorough and substantial photograph album documenting the development of early naval radio communication in Alaska just after World War I.

        The Economic Consequences of the Peace.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1919 - Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered and double-ruled in gilt, double ruling continued along boards in blind. With a newspaper article about the significance of Keynes's book from the suffragette journal The Common Cause, dated 16 January 1920, tipped-in to the front pastedown. Spine rolled and faded, ends bumped, extremities gently rubbed with a faint few marks to boards, endpapers lightly tanned, overall a very good copy. Contemporary gift inscription, "M.D.S. from J.L.S. Xmas 1919", to front free endpaper. First edition, first impression, of Keynes's second book which established his reputation as a political economist, inscribed from John Leofric Stocks to his wife, the British social reformer and economics lecturer Mary Danvers Stocks. Keynes resigned from his position as principal representative of the British Treasury at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, in protest of the heavy reparations demanded from Germany. The Economic Consequences of the Peace was written directly afterwards as a condemnation of Allied policy: Keynes would continue arguing against the reparations in his 1922 book, A Revision of the Treaty. The newspaper article laid-in was written for The Common Cause one month after The Economic Consequences of the Peace was published, and its title, "All You Can Squeeze Out of a Lemon and a Bit More", refers to Sir Eric Geddes's promise to his Cambridge electorate to extract the harshest possible reparations from Germany. The piece provides a detailed account of each chapter of Keynes's book before asking, "what has all this to do with a feminist paper? In reply to such a question we would refer our questioners to p. 127 of Mr. Keynes's book, where they will find a graphic account of the last General Election. It was the election at which women voted for the first time; and it was the election at which the citizens of this country with no uncertain voice gave Mr. Lloyd George his mandate for the Peace Conference it is clear that we who voted in the general election of 1918 gave our representatives an impossible task. The destinies of Europe were, for the moment, in our hands, and we failed Europe because we knew next to nothing about her economic capacities, next to nothing about her economic needs Mr. Keynes' book has taught us something at last, and the moral of our dissertation upon it is this: where two or three women voters are gathered together that book should be in their midst. It will teach us to think internationally, and it will teach us to think in thousands of millions". There is no accredited author, but it is possible that it was written by Stocks herself, as her name, "M. Stocks", is written in pencil at the end of the article. Baroness Stocks (1891–1975) graduated with a First Class degree from the London School of Economics, campaigned vigourously for women's rights, and was a member of Millicent Fawcett's National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS). She lectured at her alma mater from 1916 to 1919 and at King's College for Women from 1918 to 1919, and she also taught economic history at Oxford. Her husband, John Leofric Stocks, was a British philosopher who held academic posts at the universities of Manchester and Liverpool. Fundaburk 9981; Mattioli 1807; Moggridge A 2.1.1.

        The Desert Trail. With the Light Horse through Sinai to Palestine. By Scotty's Brother

      Department of Repatriation, Adelaide 1919 - 1919 (second edition)/ 1919. Octavo, viii (last blank), 90 (last blank) pages with 26 illustrations (after photographs, on 14 leaves, versos blank) plus a double-page folding map. Original wrappers with a vignette silhouette of a Light Horseman on the front cover; bottom corner lightly bumped throughout; trifling signs of handling; essentially a fine copy with a contemporary ink signature (M.T.B. Tapp?) on the inside front offsetting slightly onto a blank portion of the title page. A cross-check of the signatures of all First World War Australian servicemen (and one female nurse) with the surname Tapp produced no match. Charles Duguid (1884-1986), a Scottish-born doctor, was appointed captain in the Australian Army Medical Corps, Australian Imperial Force, in February 1917. 'He treated casualties in the Middle East (March-July) before returning to Australia in a hospital ship. His AIF appointment terminated on 5 October' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). The book was written in honour of 'Scotty', his brother William George Duguid. He was an original member of the 8th Light Horse Regiment, and served in Gallipoli, but had transferred to the 3rd Light Horse when he was killed in action on 19 April 1917, near Aseifiyeh. The author's foreword recounts in pathetic detail the circumstances of his death. This classic war memoir went through four editions in less than six months; in spite of that, this title is elusive, and fine copies of the true first edition are utterly rare. In forty years, we have not had a copy of the third edition (and the State Library of South Australia does not have that edition either), but the following information, not at all well-known, has been gleaned from copies of the other editions we have handled. The second and fourth editions are identified as such on the front cover (which also states 'Proceeds in Aid of Light Horse Memorial', replacing a small printer's device on the first edition cover). The first edition has the acknowledgements on page iii, and no testimonials; the second edition has a testimonial from Blackburn VC on page iii, with the acknowledgements on the verso; the fourth edition has testimonials from Blackburn VC and 'A Permanently Incapacitated Light Horseman' on page iii, with the acknowledgements on the verso. The fourth edition has approximately 40 more pages than the first two editions merely because it has been set in larger type. Some idea of the rapidity with which these editions appeared may be appreciated from the following: the Blackburn testimonial is dated 10 February 1919, the other testimonial is dated 6 March 1919, the State Library of SA has a copy of the fourth edition signed and dated by the author on 2 June 1919, and the processing date of the State Library's first edition is 29 April 1919. Read it and you'll understand why it struck a chord. Dornbusch 387; not in Fielding and O'Neill; Trigellis-Smith 263.

        [Photo Album]: Women in College

      Massachusetts. 1919-1921. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 7" x 10". Stapled black cloth over stiff paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 262 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 6" x 8", some with captions. Very good album with some chips and tears on the boards and leaves, with near fine photographs some with fading.A photo album compiled by a young woman attending college in Massachusetts beginning in 1919. From street signs it appears she went to Fitchburg Normal School, now Fitchburg State University, in North Central Massachusetts. Many of the photos show the women posed around campus with one photo of the four women huddled together smiling which reads, "fresh freshman," another shows them climbing a sign for Pearl Hill Road. They also visited friends, both men and women, at Harvard. Two photos show members of Fitchburg's girls' basketball team with a caption which reads, "Rah, Rah, Rah!" and another which reads "the victorious five 3 cheers!" Many of the photos show the women posing and being silly with such captions as: "naughty, naughty," "why Vera!," and "asleep at the switch." The women are seen in fashionable outfits, school uniforms, and hats throughout the album. One particularly intriguing image shows a woman, her hat in hand, passionately kissing a female schoolmate with a caption that read: "you mouthwatering Sappho." The women in this set of photos are flirty and smiling and posing on a bridge in a wooded area. After graduating the complier became a school teacher in 1921 and there are photos of her with her class of younger girls posed in a school yard and during a school play. Other photos include family snapshots and vacation photos featuring one of the women posed in her new car and another of a woman with a baseball bat.An compelling collection of photos focusing on a woman's time in college and her relationships with her classmates. .

        World War I mail from a German Prisoner of War held at the American prison camp at Krasnaya-Retchka, Siberia during the Allied intervention in Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution

      Vladivostok, Siberia, 1919. Unbound. Very good. Envelope only, no letter. The envelope is addressed to Anna Raumgarten, Altona-Elbe, Germany. The return address reads, "Prisoner of war Mail / Vladivostok / Siberia / American prison camp / Martin Prigge / No. 326." It bears a small steel circular postmark that reads, "U.S. Postal Agency Siberia, Oct 2 10 AM 1919," and a type C-5 Unit Censor handstamp that reads, "A. E. F. Siberia / Censored / Sig ............." The censor stamp has been initialed in red ink. The envelope is in very nice shape. In November 1918, a company of the U.S. 27th Infantry Regiment assumed control of the Russian prison camp at Krashnaya-Retchka (Red River) which was located about 10 miles southeast of Khabarovs. The company was augmented by command and medical personnel, with Lieutenant Colonel Morrow serving as the camp commandant. Morrow found camp conditions to be abysmal and camp records nearly non-existant. Two-thirds of the 2,000 Germans, Austians, and Hungarians held in the camp were officers. 1,800 of them were incapcitated to varying degrees by influenza, about 450 badly so. The Americans immediately began to reorgainze the camp and set the prisoners to work using Russian supplies and equipment to build barracks, establish a boiler plant, install water and electrical systems, create a mess hall and hospital, begin barber and laundry operations, organize an orchestra and athletic teams, and much more. Almost needless to say, the prisoners were overjoyed to be treated humanely. Later during the intervention when the 27th Infantry was reassigned to Verkhne-Udinsk, one thousand prisoners volunteered to fight alongside the unit against any and all forces without pay. Not much is known about Prigge, however other cards and envelopes he sent from various Russian prisoner of war camps exist dating back to 1915. While the Allied intervention in Russia was all but forgotten in the West, it remained an open wound in the mnd of Soviet leadership throughout the Cold War. This remarkable envelope documents one of the least known facets of that conflict. All mail related to the American intervention in Siberia is scarce. Mail from the prison camp at Krashnaya-Retchka is rare as are signed examples of the C-5 censor stamp. Van Dam's Postal History of the A.E.F. notes only eight extant examples of American prison camp mail from Siberia, all of which are preprinted official POW cards. For more information about the American prisoner of war camp see Wolfhounds and Polar Bears in Siberia by John M. House.

        The Works of Thomas Hardy.

      London: Macmillan & Company, 1919-20. The Works of Thomas Hardy, signed limited edition. Octavo, thirty-seven volumes, bound in contemporary three quarters dark blue morocco, gilt tooling and titles to the spine. The Mellstock edition, limited to five hundred copies. In near fine condition. A very nice attractively bound set. Thomas Hardy was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth. He was highly critical of much in Victorian society, especially on the declining status of rural people in Britain, such as those from his native South West England. While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, therefore, he gained fame as the author of such novels as Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). During his lifetime, Hardy's poetry was acclaimed by younger poets (particularly the Georgians) who viewed him as a mentor. After his death his poems were lauded by Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden and Philip Larkin.

"Yes I met Stephen Crane ...". Harris, writes to a fan of his magazine (PEARSON'S): "...Yes I met Stephen Crane in London when I was doing the 'Saturday Review.' Harold Fredericks brought him to me. I had already read 'The Red Badge of Courage.' and thought highly of it. We got to know each other pretty well till he married and went into the country. "You ask me why I have not written abut him. Because I have not yet finished writing about men of the first cclass whom I have met. Those of the second and third class must wait for my autibiography. "I don't know who publishes 'The Open Boat' and 'The Black Riders.' Perhaps I can get Hamlin Garland to write something on him for the magazine ..." Never one to miss a chance, Harris adds: "I wonder if you could get us some subscribers in you community ...".
