        MAGIA BLANCA Y MAGIA PRIETA

      Striking three-color relief print (the black block is a relief etching on zinc; the red and green are relief engravings on metal) depicting a magician conjuring an angel on the left (magia blanca), and and a rather wicked looking winged mermaid beside a burning human skull on the right (magia prieta). 6.75 x 8.75 inches, probably the cover design for a book that was never published. A prolific printmaker, illustrator, and political cartoonist, Posada (1851-1913) was a highly influential Mexican artist. According to a biography from Stanford University Library, "Posada knew his intended audience well; most were poor, illiterate and enjoyed the sensational aspect of any story. Using well-known symbols, and with an uncanny journalistic sense, Posada was able to identify a hierarchy of interests for the common man: family, work, neighborhood, government, disasters, religion and the supernatural." Although he created thousands of book illustrations, he is best known for his calaveras-images of human skulls and skeletons used in celebration of the Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos). "Because he worked mostly within a commercial sphere, much of Posada's work has been lost, and he died in obscurity. [He] was rediscovered, however, by the Mexican muralists of the 1930s, and since then interest in his surviving works has steadily increased" (Gale Biography in Context). The name of the printer with whom Posada was closely associated, Antonio Vanegas Arroyo, appears at the lower right of this print, and Posada's own name is on the lower left. One small chip to the lower margin, slight crease to lower right cover, else fine condition.

        Portrait of an unknown man.

      Full-length portrait of an unknown man with an umbrella under his arm. Typical profile portrait by caricaturist and watercolor portrait painter (an unfortunate art thief) Richard Dighton. His father Robert Dighton,had been a clever social satirist. Signed on the verso in pencil: 'Richard Dighton / 5 Hugh Street (West) / Eccleston square'. It is, therefore, possible to date the drawing between 1851 and 1852, when the artist lived at that address in Cheltenham. [see THE ILLUSTRATORS. THE BRITISH ART OF ILLUSTRATION 1800-2014, p. 9].""Richard Dighton published his first etching in 1815. By 1828 he had created over one hundred works of art in this medium. At that date he ceased etching and moved to the provinces, settling in both Cheltenham and Worcester. Over the next twenty years Dighton worked mainly as a watercolor portraitist. After 1835 he again produced original prints, this time in the medium of lithography. As accomplished portrait painter and etcher, Dighton exhibited at the Free Society of Artists from 1769 until 1773. In addition, he periodically exhibited at the Royal Academy. Dighton used his subtle style to produce a great number of humorous portraits of the leading figures in English society. In awkward poses and with ruddy faces, Dighton satirized lawyers, military officers, actor, and actresses who were seen about town. He also did a series of amusing portraits of Oxford professors and country gentlemen, which display the same subtle sense of humor typical of his caricatures. In 1806 the British Museum discovered that Dighton had been stealing prints from their print room and selling them on the open market. An art dealer by the name of Samuel Woodburn had purchased a copy of Rembrandt's ""Coach Landscape"" from Dighton for twelve guineas. Supposing it may be a copy, Woodburn took the print to the British Museum to compare it with their impression; upon which he discovered that their copy was missing. Upon investigation Dighton confessed that he befriended the museum officials by drawing portraits of them when he visited the museum. This relationship allowed him the freedom to steal prints from the print room and remove them from the museum in his portfolio. He then proceeded to supplement his artists' income by selling the pilfered items to the art trade. Although he had somewhat questionable morals, Dighton remains an important English caricaturist who brought the profession a refreshing subtlety and quiet wit. Ironically, many of Dighton's caricatures and some of his original drawings can now be found in the print room of the British Museum. [http://www.heatons-of-tisbury.co.uk/dighton.htm]

        PHOTOGRAPHIC RESEARCHES AND MANIPULATIONS:; INCLUDING THE SUBSTANCE OF THE AUTHOR'S TREATISE ON DAGUERREOTYPE

      NY: Holman & Gray, Printers, 1851. First edition. 8vo., 15 pp. Stitched into the original printed wrappers. The bottom tip of the leaves extend beyond the trimmed edge are lightly creased. There are small remnants of a brown paper affixed to the blank rear wrapper. A near fine copy. In 1850, the Rev. Levi Hill announced his "discovery" of producing a daguerreotype in color, which he called a "Hillotype," Between the years of 1850 and 1856 when he published his treatise, there was considerable controversy as to whether he really had discovered a color process or was simply a fraud. According to Eder, the "Hillotype" was nothing more than a daguerreotype with color painted upon it. John Towler, editor of Humphrey's Journal [previously the Daguerreian Journal] wrote in 1865, when Hill died "He always affirmed to this writer that he did take pictures in their natural colors, but it was done by an accidental combination of chemicals which he could not, for the life of him, again produce!" Today, evidence seems to indicate that Hill did indeed produce daguerreotypes from life in natural colors. This short pamphlet was prepared by Hill to promote his forthcoming work on the daguerreotype in natural color; the Hillotype. It includes 4 pages in which he defends the authenticity of his color process, while fending off offers to buy it. The remainder of the text reproduces the table of contents and notices of the press. Given the length of time until the publication in 1856 of; A TREATISE ON HELIOCHROMY... it would appear that Hill continued to improve upon his process. In the interim, in 1851, Hill brought out what may be called the second edition of his, A TREATISE ON THE DAGUERREOTYPE; it has a similar title to our pamphlet, PHOTOGRAPHIC RESEARCHES AND MANIPULATIONS: INCLUDING THE AUTHOR'S FORMER TREATISE ON DAGUERREOTYPE, and is in substance largely a manual of the conventional daguerreian process. When his, A TREATISE ON HELIOCHROMY was finally published in 1856, the price of the book was an exorbitant $25.00, resulting in poor sales. A rare pamphlet, with WorldCat locating only the following copies; New York Public Library, Yale and American Antiquarian Society. Roosens and Salu No. 2879.

        Soldat från ett bayerskt alpregemente. (Sappör.)

      Olja på pappannå. Ej signerad. 19 × 31 cm. Proveniens enligt påskrift a tergo: "Tillhör Fru Blenda Sundström / målad av professor J C Boklund 1851". Anteckningen förefaller ifylld senare och avser säkert Blenda Lundström (1869-1924), konstnärens dotter. Johan Christoffer Boklund var född på Kulla Gunnarstorp i Skåne och kom som 15-åring till Lund, där han fick undervisning i litografi och arbetade med planscherna till Sven Nilssons fauna. Vid Köpenhamns konstakademi var han elev till J. L. Lund och 1837 kom han till Stockholm och Konstakademien. 1846 reste han med sin elev J. F. Höckert till München, och stannade där i åtta år innan han med ett stipendium fortsatte till Paris.Denna friska studie är utförd under hans Münchenår, säkert under någon av hans sommarresor i Bayern och Tyrolen.Boklund återvände till Sverige i december 1855, blev lärare vid Akademien och utnämndes till professor. Många ytterligare ämbeten tillkom. Han är inte minst känd för att ha ingått i kretsen kring Karl XV som kungens närmast betrodde konstrådgivare och -lärare, samt föreståndare för hans tavelsamling."Boklunds konstnärsskaps karaktär framstår klarast i hans historiska genretavlor och tyrolerbilder", skriver Nordensvan, som uppskattade hans "måleriska hållning, omsorgsfulla behandlingssätt, delikata penselföring och koloristiska charm". Ett av Boklunds tyrolermotiv, Hemvändande meranskyttar, stod vid hans död ofullbordat på staffliet.Talrika soldater befolkar Boklunds historiemåleri, om än ofta i 1600-talsdräkt, och bland hans bevarade teckningar finns åtskilliga studier i blyerts av samtidens militärer i detaljrikt återgivna uniformer. Det förvånar inte att han under sina vandringar velat dokumentera den ovanliga sappöruniformen, och gjort det ovanligt ambitiöst med en vacker antydan om landskapet i bakgrunden. Ämnet passade dessutom tidens fascination för folkliv och traditionella dräkter.Sappörer var soldater som utförde lättare befästningsarbeten och konstruerade vägar och broar (samt demolerade motsvarande konstruktioner när de tillhörde fienden). Yxan och förklädet var karakteristiska för deras dräkt, och förekommer än idag i vissa ceremoniella uniformer.

There is minor to moderate foxing to many of the plates. Part VI has some water staining. Howes S183. Sabin 77849. Field 1379: "Schoolcraft's work was intended to be a great encyclopedia of information relating to the American Aborigines. Schoolcraft had but little learning and no scientific training ... the work contains a vast mass of really valuable material. A very large number of beautiful steel engravings, representative of some phase of Indian life and customs, are contained in the work, but the most valuable of its illustrations are the drawings of weapons, domestic utensils ... and every form of antiquities ... The six volumes contain 336 full-page plates, representing thousands of scenes and objects named. " The illustrations are by Seth Eastman (1808-1875), some after sketches by Schoolcraft, R.H. and E.M. Kern and others. Eastman graduated from West Point in 1829 and was sent to Fort Crawford, then Fort Snelling. He was transferred back to the Academy, spending the years 1833-9 teaching military draftsmanship. He studied painting for 5 of those years with the eminent Academy artist Robert W. Weir. He spent the next 7 years primarily at Fort Snelling, subsequently was transferred to Texas. During that time he carefully studied the Indians in the vicinity, especially the Sioux and the Chippewa, and learned their languages. From 1850-1855 he executed the illustrations for Schoolcraft's work under orders from the War Department and produced illustrations for works by his wife, Mary Henderson Eastman "Dahcotah" (1849), "American Aboriginal Protfolio" (1853) and "Chicora" (1854). First edition of this seminal work..

        TRUE STORIES FROM HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY

      Boston,: Ticknor, Reed and Fields, 1851.. First Edition, First Issue. B.A.L.7655. 12mo,, publisher's original decorated red cloth, enclosed in a morocco slipcase box. Uncommonly fine and fresh being the Henry W. Poor copy (of Standards & Poor) with his attractive bookplate. Minor edge tear to the bottom of the title page and a little light rubbing only. UNCOMMON HAWTHORNE FIRST EDITION. This collection of stories compiled many works that had stood the test of time which Hawthorne wished to offer at an affordable price in a single attractive volume so that everyone could enjoy them. It is comprised of the whole "History of Grandfather's Chair", which is complete in three parts. "Grandfather's Chair" was a pioneering example of historical nonfiction for children. Framed by a narrative in which Grandfather tells four Hawthorne grandchildren the adventures of the old English chair on which he sits, it traces the founding of Massachusetts from the Puritan settlement of Salem and Boston through the Revolutionary era. The "substantial and homely reality" of Grandfather's fireside chair unifies these "true stories," since individuals associated with the founding of the republic ranging from Anne Hutchinson to George Washington are somehow made to sit in, own, or act within the hearing of this sturdy oaken artifact. The biographical stories are of: Benjamin West, Sir Isaac Newton, Samuel Johnson, Oliver Cromwell, Benjamin Franklin and Queen Christina.

        Histoire naturelle générale et particulière des mollusques terrestres et fluviatiles .

      Paris, J.B. Ballière, 1820-1851 - 4 vols, folio (415 x 273 mm), with 248 engraved plates, 247 printed in colours and finished by hand and one key plate; a little minor foxing, a fine copy in an outstanding binding of contemporary red-brown half morocco and marbled boards, spines elaborately gilt, gilt edges. First edition, Large Paper copy of one the most beautiful conchological works. ‘Posterity is grateful to Férussac for some of the most beautiful and accurate coloured figures of non-marine molluscs ever published’ (Dance). It is also the last and one of the finest examples of French colour-printing by Langlois, the printer responsible for some of Redouté's finest work. This work had a long and complicated publishing history, with the result that few copies are found complete. The first 28 parts, by André Férussac, appeared between 1820 and 1832, containing 162 plates and 128 pages of text. In 1838 another six instalments were issued by Deshayes. The death of the publisher and departure of Deshayes to Algeria again brought the work to a halt. In 1848 Baillière acquired the stock and plates and convinced Deshayes that a work of such beauty and scientific importance could not remain unfinished. Eight more instalments were published. Deshayes is responsible for the greatest part of the text and the 85 plates which were inserted amongst the 162 plates of Férussac. The colour-printing and hand-colouring were executed under the supervision of Langlois and after his death by his pupil and successor, Geny-Gros. The plates were drawn by the finest natural history artists in France at the time: Bessa, Huet, Prêtre, Prévost, and Riocreux. Baillière in his ‘Avertissement de l’éditeur’ tells how as a consequence of the 1848 Revolution the most outstanding natural history artists could not find employment, apart from this work.

        Longue et très belle correspondance de Mme de Lamartine.

      - 41 lettres autographes signées 111 In-8, in-12 et in-16 1851-1862 et sans date La plupart des lettres ornées d'un monogramme gaufré (dont celui de Lamartine). bon Superbe correspondance amicale de Mme de Lamartine à son secrétaire intime, qui éclaire de manière indirecte, privilégiée et inédite, les sombres années et l'entourage intime du poète. De cette profonde amitié, Charles Alexandre consacra un ouvrage, paru en 1887 : Madame de Lamartine. Au fil de ses lettres, elle évoque les visites d'amis (en particulier d'Henri de Lacretelle), les vendanges à Milly et Saint-Point, ses voyages, ses nombreux soucis de santé (la calligraphie de ses dernières lettres témoignent de sa dégradation), le long travail de correction des épreuves de son mari dont elle revoie les textes, etc. Elle évoque aussi ses relations avec le poète. Quelques extraits : 2 janvier 1855. «Avant-hier, Mr Adam nous a apporté le buste en marbre et plusieurs de nos amis sont venus le soir l'admirer chez nous. Nous cherchons à l'éclairer le mieux possible pour le soir, il faut renoncer à le regarder le matin, notre cottage est trop petit pour qu'on puisse avoir lumière et distance, mais le soir il fait un très grand effet. Vous viendrez le voir bientôt n'est-ce pas ? [.]. Le travail a été incessant – et va recommencer pour la Constituante qui n'est pas encore en volumes. Le 1er seul a paru. Les 3 autres sont à revoir [.]. Une maison de Paris qui avait acheté 400 pièces de vin nouveau excellent, n'a pas l'argent comptant. Mr de L. [Lamartine] a refusé de les voir sans payement. Tout est rompu. Sans doute il pourra vendre très bien ce vin là, mais en attendant, il a des payements qu'il avait échelonnés sur la somme qu'il devait recevoir ces jours ci. Ecrivez moi le plus souvent que vous le pourrez, rien ne me fait plus de plaisir que de recevoir vos lettres. Croyez-le [.]». «M. de L. parle de partir le 25, lundi de la semaine qui vient. J'espère avoir fait les corrections au moins pour l'exemplaire que je garde et j'espère aussi être mieux portante pour écrire plus nettement celles que je donnerai à l'imprimeur. Il me faudra bien quelqu'un à Paris pour revoir les épreuves qui seront très difficiles à tirer. Mais il faudrait quelqu'un aussi poète que vous et aussi minutieux que le grammairien. Je ne pourrais pas confier à lui une épreuve il en ferait de la très mauvaise prose [.]». 1862. «Oui, vous avez bien raison, il aurait fallu de Platon. Mais comme l'article entier est sur lui, j'espère qu'on ne prendra pas en mauvaise part la phrase qui si évidemment se rapporte à lui. Oh qu'il serait utile de laisser revoir ! Un mot de plus ou de moins changerait tout. Un jour à Monceaux j'ai eu la chance de voir avec lui une épreuve. Je suis tombée sur un mot, un seul, qui était des plus fâcheux. Je le lui ai dit. Il en est convenu et j'ai substitué une épithète exacte et sans inconvénient. Je lui ai fait observer que je lui rendais service ! Mais il continue la même chose, et ce n'est que de loin en loin que je puis entrevoir par hasard, ou par supercherie quelque chose. C'est si fort une volonté de sa part qu'il donne ses épreuves à porter tout de suite à Jean, au lieu de les donner le soir à un commis qui passe devant l'imprimerie. J'en suis désolée. Si je pouvais seulement causer avec lui sur ce qu'il écrit, je le convaincrais souvent de l'inconvénient de mots qui lui sont échappés. Il est de même pour son portrait. Il a fait faire, l'été passé, un dessin pour la gravure ; il ne l'a laissé voir pas même à Val. Et voici venir une belle gravure aussi peu ressemblante et aussi prosaïque que toutes les autres. Je lui ai reproché de ne pas m'avoir consultée – dirait-il vous pouvez penser que je ne m'entends pas en littérature qui n'est pas mon métier, comme tu dis, mais tu conviens que j'ai du goût en peinture et que je suis même un peu du métier. Pourquoi m'exclure quand, par une petite observation de moi, j'aurais mi le doigt sur le défaut ainsi que je le fais maintenant que [Attributes: Signed Copy]
