        Original costume design for Tchaikovsky's opera The Queen of Spades [Pikovaya Dama (Pique Dame)] by the noted Russian artist Alexandre Benois for the character of the Kaufmannstochter (the Merchant's Daughter) in Act I, scene 1

      Pique Dame, in three acts, op. 68, by Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky to a libretto by Modest Tchaikovsky and the composer after Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin's novella (1833) was first performed in St. Petersburg at the Mariinsky Theatre on December 7/19 1890. "The entire opera was composed in Florence in 44 days of frenzied inspiration (30 January-14 March 1890), the composer freely supplementing his brother's text at the dictate of his hectic muse. By mid-June the orchestration was complete and the opera had been submitted to the theatre and to Tchaikovsky's publisher Jurgenson. The inordinate speed of composition was matched by an unusually tight construction and a quality of imagination unmatched in its way in the whole of Russian opera. The composer's many letters to his brother librettist abound with expressions of happy amazement at his own powers of disciplined invention: 'Either I am horribly mistaken, Modya, or the opera is a masterpiece' was the final verdict - one which the international operatic audience has ratified. Earlier he had written 'I am so far firmly convinced that The Queen of Spades is a good, and mainly, a very original piece, speaking not from the musical point of view but in general'." Richard Taruskin in Grove Music Online. Benois is considered a seminal influence on modern ballet set and costume design. "In 1901, [he] was appointed scenic director of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, the performance space for the Imperial Russian Ballet. He moved to Paris in 1905 and thereafter devoted most of his time to stage design and decor. During these years, his work with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes was groundbreaking. His sets and costumes for the productions of Les Sylphides (1909), Giselle (1910), and Petrushka (1911), are counted among his greatest triumphs. Although Benois worked primarily with the Ballets Russes, he also collaborated with the Moscow Art Theatre and other notable theatres of Europe." Wikipedia. Watercolour, ink, and gouache on wove paper. 312 x 244 mm. Signed by the artist in full and dated 1941 in pencil at lower right. With pencilled notes in Benois's hand including "N 64" in red pencil to upper right corner. Slightly worn, soiled, and creased; remnants of adhesive to corners of verso.

A few plates with faint brownspots, but in general clean and fine. ¶ First edition of this important French circumnavigation. As British, American and Dutch voyages began solidifying their interests in Australia, Hawaii and New Guinea, the French government sought to secure the religious freedoms and rights of French residents in the South Pacific. Voyages such as that of Jules Dumont d'Urville in the 1820s had already collected vast amounts of knowledge of the area, and the French government were hoping to secure its economic opportunities. Having sent out two voyages already, that of the Astrolabe and the Bayonnaise, the French began drawing plans for a third expedition. The original route planned was designed to complement that of Hyacinthe de Bougainville, re-establishing French influence of the Indo-China area. Laplace's prime objective was to re-establish French influence in Indo-China, to 'show the flag in the area. He was also asked to gather information that may be of use to merchants, such as customs, harbour regulations, conditions of entry and market information. On 30 December 1829, Laplace departed Toulon with a crew of 177 aboard La Favorite. (John Dunmore).The beautiful aquatint plates, made by and under the surveillance of Sainson, depicts views of landscapes towns, ports, cities etc. from Manilla, Madras, Australia, Singapore, Macao, Rio de Janeiro, India, Philippines, China, New Zealand etc."This valuable work, full of importent scientific information, was published by order of the French Government. It is accompanied by an "Album Historique", or Atlas of Views etc., seventy-two beautiful plates, proof impressions on India paper, which are perhaps the finest series of plates to any of the pictoresque voyages, etc." (Sabin).BMC (NH) II,604. - Sabin, 38985.

        Pride and Prejudice

      London : Richard Bentley A good to very good copy of an early Richard Bentley edition of Pride and Prejudice newly rebound in half leather with marbled boards. The binding, with gilt-lined raised bands to spine, is in fine condition. Page edges marbled. New endpapers. This copy lacks a letterpress title page or series title page; having only a black and white frontispiece and vignette title page dated 1833.; and additional title page dated 1833. The vignette title page was re-used in later editions during the 1830's-50's, retaining its 1833 date. This means that this book was published before 1860, but it is not possible to pin the date down further. The contents are in very good clean condition. The frontispiece and vignette title are a little spotty (as usual) and there is a small stain to the bottom outer corners of both. Text pages have the occasional light spot - most obvious in the bottom margins of pp circa p 244.

        THE SAVAGE. By Piomingo, a Headman and Warrior of the Muscogulgee Nation

      Knoxville: Republished at the "Scrap Book" Office, 1833. 324pp. Original sheep. Spine chipped and worn, hinges cracked, front board nearly detached, foxing throughout. Withal in decent condition. In a cloth case, leather label. Robinson's essays are written in the guise of the thoughts and debates of a Creek sage named Piomingo. Much of the text consists of arguments between whites and Piomingo over differing philosophies, making this a fascinating view of the Noble Savage and a satire on contemporary mores. First published in Philadelphia in 1810, it was evidently popular enough to go through several editions, of which this frontier-ish printing in Knoxville, at the time of Indian removal, is both exotic and notable.

        Notes on Chinese mediaeval travellers to the west.Shanghai, American Presbyterian Mission Press; London, Trübner and Co., 1875. 8vo. With numerous Chinese characters and 3 wood-engraved illustrations in text. Contemporary blind- and gold-blocked cloth.

      - Cordier, Sinica, col. 2667; Couling, p. 64. First separately published edition of a work on Chinese travellers from the 13th century, by the Baltic physician and sinologist Emil Bretschneider (1833-1901). "His writings both on botany and geography are extremely valuable" (Couling). The book is divided into four chapters, each devoted to a different Chinese traveller or voyage to the west. Bretschneider starts each chapter with a brief introduction, followed by a translation of Chinese sources including many Chinese characters. The first chapter describes the travels the Taoist monk Qiu Chuji (1148-1227) to Persia and India in the years 1221-1224 to meet the Mongol Khan. The second chapter narrates the journey of a Mongol embassy to western Asia, and chapter three is an "account of Western countries", written by an envoy of the Chinese Jin dynasty around 1220. He describes the customs and culture of the "Mohameddans" he meets in the west, probably describing the city Herat in Afghanistan. The last chapter describes the travels of the Khitan statesman Yelü Chucai, who served Genghis Khan, to present-day Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.Presentation copy, with a note by the author to "V. Gauvain" in ink on first flyleaf. Title-page with some faint water stains, otherwise in very good condition.

        Kiyoko zuga [= Representation of Nagasaki harbour].[Nagasaki, ca. 1880?]. A large watercolour painting of Nagasaki harbour (image size: 49.5 x 87.5 cm), probably on mulberry bark paper, with one large Asian ship, more than a dozen small Asian boats, and a steam boat in the background, all rendered following Western conventions of perspective. In a passe-partout in a modern wooden frame painted gold (95 x 125 cm), behind glass.

      A large watercolour painting from the Meiji period showing Nagasaki harbour viewed from the city, looking across at the Papenburg (Dutch for Pope's mountain), named for the many Catholic martyrs who were thrown off the peak. A large Asian ship in the harbour (15.5 cm tall in the painting) forms a focal point in the painting, while the masts of another appear in the foreground at left. Several more Asian sailing ships appear far in the background and there are many small rowboats in the foreground and background. Of special interest is a steamboat sailing into the harbour in the background left, with two smokestacks.Ochiai Yoshiiku (1833-1904) belonged to the group of woodcut artists known as the Utagawa school, and is therefore also known as Utagawa Yoshiiku. He studied with Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), who had studied with Tokokuni I (1769-1825), who took charge of the group when its founder, his teacher Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814), died. The Utagawa school is known for mixing Western traditions, especially Western perspective, into traditional Japanese styles. While most of Ochiai's work remained faithful to the traditional manner, the present painting shows a nearly pure Western perspective. This combined with the fact that his name also appears transliterated in the Latin alphabet may mean this painting was made for a European patron.With a few wrinkles in the paper slightly affecting the mountain at the right, the sky near it and the sail of the large ship, but otherwise in fine condition. A lovely and unusually large Japanese watercolour painting, showing Nagasaki harbour with many ships and boats.
