The English student's journal.
Seitosha 1904-1909, Tokyo - 22 issues, illustrations throughout, an incomplete set; edges worn, paper browning, some issues annotated, some bindings reinforced by staples, vocabulary lists and news supplement laid in to many issues. The English Student's Journal was published twice a month and dedicated to providing a "light, breezy, and chatty little paper" through which students of English could study. It offered short news items, witticisms, and curious facts, often with an imperialist and nationalistic bent. Of particular interest is its essay club section, in which readers were encouraged to submit short essays in return for prizes. In these essays we see glimpses of daily life among the educated Japanese, with illness, draft dodging, and the state of the economy finding representation often. Diet Library only in OCLC.

Whom should I meet but Hodgkinson carrying S.W. films to New York Wolf. The remainder is a rambling declaration of his feeling towards Charmian: My Woman, I wish I did not suffer from doing by thousand words each day. Because then I should tell you that you are my dearest possession, you are my one possession that counts for anything. Incidentally, you count for everything. All the space of words occupied by all my books would not furnish the details of the account that makes you so count with me. Wolf. The book is in great shape with minor wear to the boards. The pages are clean with light wear to the edges. There is NO writing, marks or bookplates in the book. A wonderful copy in collector's condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Our Poultry and All About Them: Their Varieties, Habits, Mating, Breeding, Selection and Management for Pleasure and Profit
London.: Hutchinson.. No date. Ca. 1904.. BOUND IN TWO VOLUMES. 36 color plates, black and white plates and in-text illustrations 442(818)pp, 11 x 9 1/4 inches, leather spine and corners with cloth-covered boards (hardbound). Covers extremities quite rubbed, light soiling to covers, a number of plates are loose, a few have soft corner creases or an occasional short edge tear; overall very good, clean condition with bright color plates. A 1904 announcement from Hutchinson describes Weir's volume as "The greatest work on poultry ever projected." It states that the book is to be published "in 13 fortnightly parts" and further observes of the author: "Mr. Harrison Weir's life-long experience as a breeder, exhibitor, and judge of poultry entitles him to the foremost place as an authority on the subject. His new book "Our Poultry," is the work of a practical man whose labours as an artist and journalist have received universal recognition, and it is no exaggeration to say that his illustrations far surpass in beauty and fidelity any pictures of poultry that have been published...; this work can certainly be called his magnum opus." Who's Who (Macmillan) in 1905 observed in their profile of Weir: "'Our Poultry and All About Them,' the writing and illustrating of which occupied his attention for upwards of 20 years, [is] for its size...unique as the work of one man, author and illustrator, there being over 600,000 words of letterpress, 37 (sic) richly printed coloured pictures, and over 350 black and white drawings..." Weir's two-volume work is relatively uncommon in a complete state, as it was issued in installments to be bound when the series was complete. This set has been bound without a title page or table of contents (presumably issued with one of the parts) and there is no index (the latter likely as published). Some of the curious features, which might be described as comprising an appendix to the volumes, include Curatives and Medicines derived from poultry; Shrove Tuesday Customs involving Poultry; Cock-Crowing; Spurs; Poultry Markets; Superstitions and Omens; Proverbs, Axioms, Sayings, Etc., followed by a Glossary. .

FINE AND EXTENSIVE HERBARIUM OF BRITISH PLANTS
n/a, n/a 1904 - A superb and extensive collection of herbarium specimens of British Plants with over 650 species represented; approximately 100 of these are supported with original watercolour illustrations, and a few with original b/w photographs of specimens or habitat. Each specimen is displayed in a separate card folder (size approx. 38 x 51cm folding to 38 x 26cm.), carefully sewn in place with white thread; and generally protected with an inserted sheet of blotting paper; each with a printed species label to which location and date have been added in manuscript and occasionally the collector's initials. The illustrations are painted or inserted onto the inside front fold opposite the dried plant and vary somewhat in quality, with some highly accomplished. The specimens were collected mainly between 1904 and 1910 with a few later specimens around 1913, with a further adjunct collection of specimens around 1932. We are not sure who the main collector was, but all collections appear to be made by the "J" family as there are a few references to E. V. J.; E. M. J.; D. R. J.; and E. S. C. J. The centre of collection is focused around Canterton in Dorset, but collections were made all over England and Wales inlcuding: Salisbury Plain, Corfe Castle, Snowdon, Bramshaw, New Forest, Lulworth, Sedge Moor, Rakes Brake[?], Ramsey, Swanage, Cheddar, Yarmouth, Coombe Bissett, Sheepstor etc. and in Cornwall - Kynance, Goonhilly Downs etc; and in Wales - Snowdon and Cefn Rocks. To give an impression of the scope of this extraordinary collection there are at least 24 orchid species represented as follows: - bog orchid, New Forest Aug 1906 (supported with a contemporary b/w photograph presumably of the collected plant); broad-leaved helleborine, Cadman Road, Aug. 1903; marsh heleborine, Sennen (W. Cornwall), July 1919; white helleborine, White Parish Hill, June 1906; common tway-blade, Canterton, July 1904; heart-leaved tway-blade, near Llyn Anafon, July 1910 (N.Wales); bird's nest orchid, Binstead Hill Wood, June 1906; commony lady's-tresses, nr. Brook Pond, Sept. 1903; large-flowered lady's tresses, New Forest 1905; green-winged Orchid, Canterton, May 1904; military orchid June 1909 (initialled W. M. J., no location given); Orchis ustulata (burnt orchid), Whiteparish Hill, June 1906; early purple orchid, Canterton, May 1903; spotted hand orchid (O. mascula), Canterton, June 1908; Marsh Orchid, (O. latifolia), New Forest , May 1912; Pyramidal Orchid, Lulworth, 1906; butterfly orchid, New Forest, June 1906; great butterfly orchid, Buckcharm, June 1905; fragrant orchid; nr. Rhydymwyn, July 1910; green frog orchid, The Leeta, Mold, N. Wales, June 1903; bee orchid, Lulworth, June 1904; spider orchid, Swanage, April 1910; and Fly Orchid, Bentworth, June 1906. The specimens in their folders are contained within a six-shelf stained pine cabinet, adapted to the purpose; to the the lip of each shelf in manuscript are lists of plant families, though these only partly relate to the specimens on that shelf. The cabinet is a little bruised and worn, and the key to the lock missing, but the contents and specimens are in excellent condition, a few folders dusty to the outside. An extraordinary collection, containing many rare species, a testimony to a bygone Britain before the introduction of intensive farming and the wholesale loss of wildflower meadows.

Bindings in overall fair to good, interior in near to fine condition. About the Illustrator: James Jacques Joseph Tissot (1836 -1902) was born at Nantes. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Ingres, Flandrin and Lamothe, and exhibited in the Paris Salon for the first time at the age of twenty-three. In 1861 he showed The Meeting of Faust and Marguerite, which was purchased by the state for the Luxembourg Gallery. His first characteristic period made him a painter of the charms of women. Demi-mondaine would be more accurate as a description of the series of studies which he called La Femme a Paris. He fought in the Franco-Prussian War and, falling under suspicion as a Communard, left Paris for London. Here he studied etching with Sir Seymour Haden, drew caricatures for Vanity Fair, and painted portraits as well as genre subjects. Sometime in the 1870s Tissot met an Irish divorcee, Mrs. Kathleen Newton, who became his companion and the model for many of his paintings. Mrs. Newton moved into Tissot's household in 1876 and lived with him until her suicide in the late stages of consumption in 1882 at the age of 28. It was many years before he turned to the chief labor of his career, the production of a series of 700 watercolor drawings to illustrate the life of Christ and the Old Testament. He disappeared from Paris, whither he had returned after the death of Kathleen Newton, and went to Palestine. In 1896 the series of 350 drawings of incidents in the life of Christ was exhibited in Paris, and the following year found them on show in London. They were then published by the firm of Lemercier in Paris, who had paid him 1,100,000 francs for them. (Over 500 related drawings, watercolors and oils are now in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.) After this he turned to the scenes of the Old Testament, upon which he was still engaged at the abbey of Buillon, in the department of Doubs, France, when he died. American Edition de Grand Luxe.

Ein weiterer Mitbegründer der Kronberger Malerkolonie, J.F. Dielmann (1809-1885), mit dem er freundschaftlich verbunden war, riet ihm in Düsseldorf weiterzustudieren. 1881-1887 setzte er seine Studien an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie bei E. von Gebhardt (1838-1925) und E. Dücker (1841-1916) fort. 1888-1890 folgte ein Würzburg-Aufenthalt. Anschließend legte er an der Königlichen Zeichenschule in Berlin die Prüfung als Zeichenlehrer ab. 1891/92 hatte er eine erste Lehrestelle in Halle/Saale. 1892 wurde er als Lehrer an die Staatliche Kunstschule Berlin berufen, 1898 folgte die Berufung zum Professor, 1915-1930 war er dort Direktor. Zwischen 1915 und 1939 unternahm er zahlreiche kleinere Reisen nach Kronberg. 1898 war er Mitbegründer der Berliner Sezession, deren Ausstellungen er regelmäßig beschickte. 1919 wurde er Mitglied der Preußischen Akademie. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er eng mit Max Liebermann (1847-1935) zusammen und wird zum Kreis um L. Corinth (1858-1935) gezählt. Philipp Franck, der eine grundlegende Reform des Zeichenunterrichts in Preußen durchsetzte, verfaßte hierzu zwei Handbücher für den Zeichen- und Kunstunterricht.

Goulding., London 1904 - Transfer lithograph in black printed on fine laid paper with the watermark O.W.P & A.

There were two states of this lithograph, of which there were only twenty-three life time impressions.The sitter was Beatrix Whistler, his wife. Whistler plainly stated in a letter to the Ways, this lithograph and La Belle Dame endormie were drawn on the evening of 22nd of September 1894,making them among the most precisely dated images in his lithographic oeuvre.When Whistler received the proofs of La Robe Rouge in early October 1894, he ordered up to twenty impressions, saying that he might wish to touch the stone during an anticipated visit to London.This lithograph was also published in The Studio magazine in 1895 in an edition of 3000 copies. The image was transferred from the original stone to supplementary stones in preparation for the large machine-printed edition that Thomas way pulled for The Studio.Image size 188 x 155 mmSheet size 380 x 267mm (14 7/8 x 10 inches) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

[Photo Album]: Teen-age Girls Attending the "Queen's School" in Bangkok, 1968 [hand-titled]: "Happiness is Together with All Friends"
Small quarto. Plasticized white paper over flexible boards. 111 black and white photographs. Most are about 2.5" x 3.5", a few larger. Slight soiling to the boards, images are mostly fine, many with ink signatures, but for the most part not obscuring the images. Dated from the inscriptions (in Thai). Each photograph is a portrait of a young girl or group of young girls, apparently prepared as a friendship album for one of the students. After the handwritten title page ("Happiness is Together with All Friends") is a drawing of an orchid, and the single word "Farewell," perhaps this was prepared as a going away album for the lone western (possibly American) girl pictured in the album. The girls, in school uniforms, miniskirts, bathing suits, and other typical late 1960s fashion, are almost all are in Western style clothing. The students are depicted engaging in a variety of activities, playing basketball, baseball, posing with a Jaguar XKE, with pets, with a guitar, on the beach, with a bicycle taxi, etc. Also laid in is a New Year's card, most of the text handwritten in Thai. A nice period vernacular album of adolescent girls engaged in a wide range of activities. The Thai inscriptions in the album indicates that this album depicts girls from the Queen's School. Queen Saovabha Phongsri took a particular interest in the education of women, and in 1904 established the first school for girls in Siam; the "Rajini School" or Queen's School in Bangkok. .
