Knut eventually bought the Cannery and later opened the Hovden Cannery now the site of the Monterey Bay Aquarium "Knut Hovden, an ichthyologist and graduate of the National Fisheries College in Bergen, Norway, came to the United States in 1904. He was soon recruited to work for Frank E. Booth who operated a large cannery in Monterey. In 1916, Hovden established a cannery of his own, the K. Hovden Company. Every visitor to the Monterey Bay Aquarium will notice a curious sign near the entrance that says, "Portola Sardines." The Portola brand of sardines was the trademark of the K. Hovden Company, which, by 1941, was the largest sardine canning company in Monterey during the time that Monterey was the largest sardine canning port in the world. The cannery was located on the corner of Ocean View Avenue and David Avenue in Monterey.

        Das Sozialprodukt und die Rechenpfennige. Glossen und Beiträge zur Geldtheorie von heute [ First Edition ] Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. Separat-Abdruck aus Band 44, Heft 3

      Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. Separat-Abdruck aus Band 44, Heft 3, 1 brochure in-8, Verlag von J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck), Tübingen, 1918, pp. 627-715 Edition originale. Très rare exemplaire du tiré-à-part. Etat moyen (couverture abîmée et débrochée, nombreuses annotations de Georges-Henri Bousquet). Dans cette étude, Schumpeter évoque notamment la création du pouvoir d'achat par les banques et le rôle capitalistique de la monnaie (Cf Perroux, La Pensée économique de Joseph Schumpeter, 23). Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978), qui fut notamment professeur aux facultés d'Alger et de Bordeaux, était juriste de formation initiale (docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"). Mais il reste surtout connu comme un économiste proche de Pareto (son maître en sociologie) et de Schumpeter, ainsi que comme un islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje. On peut signaler que le Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l'Analyse Economique écrite par Joseph Schumpeter à la fin de sa vie. Les deux hommes se connaissaient personnellement depuis une première rencontre à Vienne en septembre 1923. A cette époque, G.-H. Bousquet fut présenté à Joseph Schumpeter, à Vienne, par Paul Lazarsfeld. Comme Bousquet le raconte lui-même : "A ce moment, Schumpeter avait 40 ans. Il était alors totalement ignoré en France, mais connu aux Etats-Unis où il avait été invité à professer quelque temps, et en Angleterre, où il avait eu également l'occasion de se faire entendre". Les deux hommes, qui deviendront amis, se rencontreront beaucoup plus longuement en 1933-1934 à Harvard, où Schumpeter sera devenu professeur. Georges Bousquet y effectuera en effet un long séjour de recherche, financé par la fondation Rockfeller. Toute sa carrière, Georges Bousquet sera fasciné par l'oeuvre de Schumpeter, qu'il fera notamment découvrir, tant par ses articles que par les discussions, à l'économiste François Perroux. Allemand

Diese völlige Zersetzung der völkischen Ordnungskräfte bewirkte, daß grundsätzlich jeder bauen konnte, was, wo und wie er wollte. Das Jahr 1918 brachte dann die zügellose Entfesselung aller kulturfeindlichen Kräfte. Der J u d e gewann bestimmende Macht über das kulturelle Schaffen in Deutschland. Er verdrängte das Arteigene und förderte das Artfremde. Er benutzte auch die Kunst als Mittel, um das deutsche Volk seelisch zu zermürben und in fremdrassiges Denken hineinzuzwingen. Die Bau-Unkultur, die mit dem Schlagwort "Neue Sachlichkeit" propagiert und trotz der eindeutigen Ablehnung durch das Volk doch ausgeführt wurde, war nichts als ein Versuch, dem deutschen Volk den Kulturwert der arteigenen Heimat zu nehmen und ihm den jüdischen Kulturbolschewismus aufzunötigen. Bauten wurden damit zum Kampfmittel der bolschewistischen Weltrevolution. Die Zerstörung des aus der Gemeinschaft gewachsenen Bildes der alten Heimat durch die Bauanarchie des liberalen Zeitalters ist äußeres Symptom einer schwersten völkischen Krankheit: das deutsche Volk war ein Volk ohne Ordnung, ohne Autorität und ohne Weltanschauung geworden."

        Etienne Dinet effectue une réplique

      - 1 lettres autographes signées 3 pp. 1/4 In-4 (petit) 12/04/1918 bon Intéressante lettre d'Etienne Dinet écrite d'Algérie, dans laquelle il se justifie de vouloir effectuer une réplique d'un tableau existant, en le comparant avec un tableau de M. Allart. « La seule raison pour laquelle j'ai exécuté cette réplique fut une recherche d'effets nouveaux, dans la couleur et dans l'exécution. Ainsi, la robe bleue et argent est remplacée par une robe rose et or ; la jeune fille à coiffure noire, qui tend une fleur, est remplacée par une négresse âgée, à turban bleu, etc. Enfin, l'exécution des figures, sacrifiée à la recherche de l'effet (qui lui aussi est assez fortement modifié), est beaucoup plus sommaire, à tel point que, dans son ensemble, la toile de M. Allart parait être l'esquisse de la vôtre — votre tableau demeure donc l'oeuvre originale, à tous points de vue, et particulièrement en raison de son importance et de son exécution poussée à fond, d'après nature. » Elève de Galland, Bouguereau et Robert-Fleury. Il se fixe en Algérie et se tourne vers la peinture orientaliste. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        L'Institut français d'archéologie orientale du Caire dans la tourmente.

      - 2 lettre autographe signée et lettre dactylographiée signée 8 In-4 et in-folio 14 - 20 août 1918 En-têtes de l'Institut français d'archéologie orientale. Agrafe et trombone. pliures Correspondance relative à la mission que Foucart souhaite confier à son correspondant et aux difficultés que rencontre l'Institut français d'archéologie orientale du Caire en temps de guerre. «Vous vous doutez que l'été est dur ici. Vous en avez passé un, m'a-t-on dit. Mais, voici le second. La situation l'exige, et politiquement et financièrement, car tout le budget, saccagé par la guerre, repose sur notre imprimerie. Vous vous imaginez le tracas que nous donnent les questions de papier, d'encre, de combustible, d'envois aux auteurs. Mais je ne regrette pas ma peine devant les résultats matériels et français acquis durant ces trois ans [.]. C'est donc un devoir, pour l'Institut français du Caire, dans le domaine qui le concerne, et pour sa part, de s'efforcer de maintenir une production scientifique non pas simplement égale mais, si possible, supérieure à celle qu'il donnait avant la guerre. Non seulement il ne saurait être question d'un ralentissement de notre activité, malgré l'excuse apparente des difficultés matérielles, mais nous devons encore opposer aux publications paraissant en pays ennemis tout ce qu'il est en notre pouvoir de publier en fait de travaux du même ordre. Il s'agit, en somme, d'arriver à un résultat, dont les données peuvent sembler à première vue inconciliables : développer et intensifier plus que jamais nos publications, au moment même où les circonstances rendent particulièrement pénible le simple maintien de ce qui était, en temps ordinaire, le rendement normal de l'activité scientifique de notre Institut [.]». Egyptologue, directeur de l'Institut français d'archéologie orientale du Caire (1915-1928). Il dirige d'importantes fouilles dans la région thébaine et à Louxor. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photo Album]: Early 1900s California Family

      1918 - Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11.5". Blue cloth over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 37 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3" x 3" and 5" x 7" without captions. Slightly bowed front board and worn edges else very good with near fine photographs. The album begins with seven photos from an early 1900s wedding which took place in a lush garden. The photos show the bride and bridesmaid walking down the aisle, the exchange of vows, and a toast of the bridal party around a large table. A final photo from this section shows the newlyweds in a bridal suite sharing a loving embrace. Following the wedding the photographs document the family life of the couple until roughly 1918 with photos of children, friends, and extended family posing around family homes and farms. One photo shows a bustling city street, another shows a family in a field posing around an early automobile. Interspersed throughout the album are portraits of the family including one of a pretty young woman holding a fan. Laid in next to a large photo of a cottage is a note that reads, "in the summer of 1918 I went to LA to take a 3 month class in show card writing and lived in an apartment at 1240 S. Fremont St. with my Aunt Pearl - these are some of the places we visited." This note is followed by photos of car journeys and day trips to a beach with photos of two young women in bathing costumes posing in the water. A commercial photo of two women posing as Mack Sennet bathing beauties is also included. The end of the album shows photos of the family working on a farm as well as a child on a bicycle and girls holding a basketball. An interesting collection of an American family in the early 1900s including farm life and a turn of the century wedding.

        Small archive regarding a heroic young 3rd Infantry Division soldier including a gruesome description of hand-to-hand fighting in the two most important turning-point battles of World War One

      Marne River and the Argonne Forest, 1918. Unbound. Very good. This grouping consists of two combat letters, a French Croix de Guerre, and one newspaper clipping. The earliest letter, dated July 25, consists of four pages and is enclosed in an envelope postmarked with an indistinct flag cancelation from APO 2 (Paris). The second letter, written from a Base Hospital and dated 31 October 1918, has seven pages and is enclosed in an envelope, dated November 5, from APO 798 (Meaves-sur-Loire). The Croix de Guerre has a bronze star affixed to its ribbon. The newspaper clipping recounts Wild's action at the 2nd Battle of the Marne. Everything is in very nice shape except the envelopes which are worn and have scrapbook paper remnants affixed to the reverse. Wild enlisted in the Army in February 1918 and was assigned to the 3rd Division's 38th Infantry Regiment. On July 15, 1918, the German army launched a massive assault along the Marne River not far from Chateau-Thierry in an all-out effort to drive through Allied lines and capture Paris. The key crossing point was at the village of Mezy and the only thing that stood in the way was the 3rd Division's 38th Infantry. "On July 15, 1918, the 38th Infantry . . . successfully defended its position on the Paris-Metz railroad, 200 yards from the River Marne, against six German attacks. It was the last great offensive of the German Army and the first fight of the 38th Infantry in World War I. Initially, the Germans succeeded in driving a wedge 4,000 yards deep into the 38th Infantry's front while the U.S. 30th Infantry on its left and the French 125th Division on its right withdrew under heavy pressure. With the situation desperate, the regiment stood and fought. The two flanks of the 38th Infantry moved toward the river, squeezing the German spearhead between them and exposing it to heavy shelling by the 3d Division artillery. The German Army's offensive failed. With this brave stand the 38th Infantry earned its nom de guerre Rock of the Marne. General John J. Pershing declared its stand 'one of the most brilliant pages in our military annals.'" (Stewarts's American Military History, Vol. 2, 2005) On that day, during eight hours of intensive German bombardment, casualties in the 38th mounted, so with shells bursting around him, Wild volunteered to brave the shrapnel on foot and retrieve additional desperately needed stretchers and first aid supplies from caches in the rear. For this he was personally recognized by General Pershing. He modestly recounts the action in his letter of 25 July: "I never thought I would get over here and be right in the midst of this terrible war. . . . The night of the fifteenth of July the Germans sent over the heaviest barrage fire ever known on the Western front. We were digging trenches . . . when Fritz opened fire and we crawled down in our trenches on the double. A continual bombardment was kept up for eight hours . . . but we pulled ourselves together and stood the test. . . . The Germans crossed the river Marne on pontoon bridges but were quickly driven back. . . . We were moved on to another sector [where] we drove the Germans back about three kilometers where we held the front line until we were relieved. . . . It was the greatest experience of my life. . . . Our regiment is going to have the Croix de Guerre attached to its colors for the bravery of the troops. We were highly praised by French officials of high ranks, but I am sorry to say that we lost good men in the battle." Within days of saving Paris, the 38th was again thrust into battle along with other regiments of the 3rd, 28th, and 32nd Divisions. The Americans force-marched to Chateau Thierry in driving rain, many without food or sleep for two days. There at about 0430 on the morning of the 18th, the Americans led the Allied advance behind a rolling artillery barrage. The attack took the Germans by surprise; instead of typical trench warfare, the aggressive attack relied on direct charges, eventually driving the Germans from their positions. By the 22nd, the battle was over, and the will of the German army had been shattered. Although the war would continue for another four months, Chateau Thierry was its turning point. As German Chancellor Georg Hertling later noted, "We expected victory in Paris by the end of July. That was on the 15th. By the 18th we knew all was lost. The history of the world played out in three days." In his second letter, Wild recounted his part in the battle: "I have had some terrible experiences since I came over here. No one knows what the boys are going through. . . . We try to do our duty cheerfully even though it is gruesome at times. . . . My duty has been the cause of me killing three Germans that I know of. One I killed with my bayonet and two with a hand grenade. Of course you are shooting at them almost incessantly but we never know if we kill them unless you get near enough to use our bayonets and hand grenades. It is terrible to see the enemy so near that you see the blood lust in each other's eyes. I killed my Germans at Chateau Thierry. We were ordered to take a nest of machine guns that were situated in a shell torn house. I was put in charge of a squad of men and the Lieutenant attacked from one direction and I from another. We advanced . . . with bayonets fixed and in thrusting position. . . . We crept cautiously along the sides of the house and just as we reached the door a German walked right out . . . onto the point of my bayonet before he realized we were there. . . . [I pushed] my rifle forward giving him full benefit of the cold steel at the end of it. His blood poured out and down the stock of my rifle and onto my hand. It seemed to send me mad and just at that moment the Lieutenant gave the order to charge. We went into the house and threw hand grenades into every room, shutting the door before the grenades exploded and opening them after. . . . They did their work well. Too well for the Germans who had their machine guns trained . . . on Americans. . . . Not a German came out of that house alive." An amazing first-hand account by one soldier of heroism and bloody hand-to-hand fighting in the two battles that turned the course of World War One. As of 2018, nothing anywhere close to this is for sale in the trade, nor listed in OCLC; neither are there any remotely similar auction records listed at ABPC nor the Rare Book Hub.

Die Engländer rückten auf aleppo vor und unterbrachen die Bagdadbahn. Die noch 1100 Mann starke "Deutsche Abteilung bei der VI. Osmanischen Armee" in Mesopotamien, mit dem ihr zugeteilten "Austro-ungarischen Autogruppenkommando Türkei 2" war damit von Konstantinopel abgeschnitten. Die Truppen mussten, um der Gefangennahme zu entgehen, auf dem Landmarsch quer durch Kleinasien, von Mossul, über Mardin - Diarbekir - Mesere - Malatia - Siwas, nach Samsun am Schwarzen Meer verwiesen werden. Am 29.10.2018 verließ die deutsche Abteilung Mossul am Tag darauf rückten die Engländer dort ein. Zur Unterstützung wurde der deutschen Abteilung aus den von Syrien an die kilikischen Taurus zurückgesandten deutschen Truppen die "Siwas-Expedition" entgegengesandt. Unter Führung des bayerischen Hauptmanns d.L., Freiherr von Perfall, traf diese Hilfsexpedition mit den mit Betriebsstoffen, Bekleidung und Verpflegung beladenen Kraftwagen von Bosanti über Nigde-Kaisarije Anfang November 1918 Siwas ein. Gemeinsam setzen von da an die deutsche Abteilung und die Siwas-Expedition ihren schweren Marsch über Tokat - Amasia nach Samsung fort. Zwei Monate nach dem Abmarsch von Mossul, am 1.1.1919, erreichte die letzte Karawane der deutschen Abteilung Samsun. Nahezu 1400 km haben die braven Truppen zurückgelegt, durch Steppen ohne Wege und über Straßen und Brücken, die diesen Namen kaum verdienten. Durch die Gluthitze Mesopotamiens, durch die Wildnis Kurdistans, durch Schnee und Eis der armenischen Berge, durch feindliche Stämme und gut bewaffnete Räuberbanden hatten sie sich an das Schwarze Meer durchgekämpft. Am 12.1.1919 verließen sie mit dem Handelsdampfer "Kerkyra" der Deutschen Levante-Linie Samsun, am 14. Januar trafen sie auf der Reede von Haidar Pascha (Konstantinopel) ein. Am 27.2. lichtete "Kerkyra" erneut die Anker. Durch das Mittelmeer, die Meerenge von Gibraltar, den Golf von Biskaya und den minenverseuchten Kanal führte Kapitän Barber die ihm anvertrauten Formationen sicher in die Heimat zurück. Am 23.3.1919 traf "Kerkyra" vor Wilhelmshaven ein. Was die Truppen in Mesopotamien gesehen, was sie auf ihrem abenteuerlichen und mühseligen Marsch durch Kleinasien und auf langer Seefahrt erlebt und erlitten, ist in den folgenden Bildern festgehalten." - Illustrierte Bücher, deutsche Truppen in Kleinasien im Ersten Weltkrieg, Rückmarsch aus der Türkei in die Heimat, Deutsche Abteilung bei der VI.

      1918 - 48 original watercolours (including title-page) each with author's monogram, captioned in German and dated. Oblong 8vo. A little shaken in the original grey cloth album but otherwise fine, inscription ?Walter Reichard Berlin Hufelandstrasse No. 39? to rear pastedown. 48ll. Astrakhan 1914-1918. [With:] Two large hand-coloured drawings by Reichard measuring 200 by 250mm. 1917 & A wonderful watercolour album by a German internee, one of the most accomplished we have handled. These 48 beautifully realised images provide a deep insight into life in Astrakhan province on the north shore of the Caspian Sea. They were painted primarily between 1914-16, a particularly interesting time in the Russian Empire with Revolution and subsequent withdrawal from the First World War. Encompassing the Kalmyk steppe, the Volga and Akhtuba Rivers, Reichard'svivid, intimate pictures combine a strong use of colour with a delicate touch. The album opens with a classic image of a Kirghiz rider on horseback at dusk, which also serves as a title leaf. There are images of Yenotayevsk and Bolkhuny, which are followed by a suite of fifteen images depicting life among the Kalmyks and then another fifteen of the Kirghiz. These images are of enormous ethnographic interest including ten individual portraits, two family portraits, as well as group portraits of clergy, fishermen and travellers. There is a depiction of a local ceremony ?mädchentag?, another of female dancers, and water carriers. In addition, there are some spectacular landscapes of Bolkhuny, the steppe, the Volga at sunset as well as frozen over in winter. The album rounds out with portraits of Russians, Ruthenien and Galitzian refugees, a Tartar veterinarian, and even a Persian longshoreman. Founded in 1742, Yenotayevsk is the oldest settlement in the Astrakhan province. At around 1880, it was turned into a camp for political exiles and so was a natural home for internees in the First World War. Bolkhuny is a village in Akhtubinsky district, Astrakhan. It's on the Akhtuba River, a tributary of the Volga. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A study in hospital efficiency: As demonstrated by the case report of the second two years of a private hospital

      s.n, 1918. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Bound in publisher's blue cloth. No date, presumed ca 1918. Hardcover. Fine binding and cover. A crisp, fresh copy. Clean, unmarked pages. 179 p. Folding chart on index of cases combined with statistical tables using anatomic and pathologic classification of diseases and operations in pocket in back. <br> Dr. Ernest Amory Codman was an influential proponent of the "End Result Idea." "The 'Idea' was simply the premise that hospital staffs would follow every patient they treat long enough to determine whether or not the treatment was successful, then learn from any failures, and how to avoid those situations in the future. Surprisingly controversial at the time, the "Idea" was the basis for the Hospital Standardization movement founded by the American College of Surgeons, and the precursor to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH)." - American College of Surgeons, Ernest A. Codman, MD, FACS (1869-1940). Codman worked at Massachusetts General Hospital "as Surgeon to outpatients in 1899, and from 1902 to 1914 was an assistant visiting surgeon at the hospital." (Ibid). Codman printed End Result Cards and gave them to his patients to track demographics, follow up on the care given, and track long term outcomes. From 1913-1915 Codman taught at Harvard Medical School as a lecturer. He passionately advocated his End Result Idea in speeches to the Boston Medical Society at the Boston Medical Library in 1915. The presentation led to his dismissal from Massachusetts General Hospital and his resignation from the Standardization of Hospitals Committee, much to the chagrin of Drs. William and Charles Mayo. Codman controversially attacked the seniority based system at MGH and advocated transparency in admitting and addressing medical mistakes in the course of treatment to avoid repetition and increase the quality of care. Codman self-published this book A Study in Hospital Efficiency, to promote his End Result System. He provided a review of 337 of his patients discharged between 1911 and 1916, and recorded and published 123 errors. An important book advancing the quality of medical care by a hero of American medicine. <br> Provenance: This copy came from the library of Edward D. Churchill (1897-1972), M.D. Churchill was a Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Chief of Surgical Services at MGH.
