        Fine studio sized sepia profile full length portrait by photographer /sculptor Adam Salamon.

      Paris 1860 - Original Portrait by Adam-SalomonRayer, Pierre François Olive (1793-1867). Sepia-toned portrait photograph of Rayer in middle age, by Antoine Samuel Adam-Salomon (1818-81). 275 x 212 mm. Paris, circa 1860. Minor damage at corners due to removal from mounting, traces of former mounting on verso.Excellent, rare , and good-sized portrait photograph by Adam-Salomon of the dermatologist and pathologist Rayer, author of the classic Traité théorique et pratique des maladies de la peau (1826-27; G-M 3989). The photograph is typical of the work of Adam-Salomon, who originally worked as a sculptor, but turned to portrait photography under the influence of the Munich photographer Franz Hanfstaengel. Adam-Salomon's antique poses, making much use of light and shade to give painterly effects, were inspired by Classical sculpture and painting and incorporated expensive fabrics and settings. He also favoured heavy retouching of the negatives, for which he was criticized by some contemporaries. He was, however, much admired for the imposing character of many of his portraits . . . Some of those hostile to photography, such as Lamartine, were persuaded to consider it as an art by the work of Adam-Salomon. He founded his studio in Paris in 1859, working on reproductions of works of art as well as portraits of the rich bourgeoisie, and he proposed working on a portrait gallery of European notables. He was made a member of the Société Française de Photographie in 1870 and received the Légion d'honneur the same year ("Antoine-Samuel Adam-Salomon," Answers [internet reference]).The photograph shows Rayer dressed in brocade vest and frock coat and standing in front of a classical pillar or column, with a velvet-draped table next to him on which are stacked two old books. This rare photograph was purchased in an auction that contained a few items owned by Rayer's descendants.

        VILLAS ON THE HUDSON. A COLLECTION OF PHOTO- LITHOGRAPHS OF THIRTY-ONE COUNTRY RESIDENCES.

      New York: D. Appleton, . 1860 - Three preliminary leaves, thirty-one photo- lithographic plates (most with two tints), twenty-one floor plans. Oblong folio. Original gilt-lettered cloth, rebacked in three quarter calf. New endsheets. Minute wear to extremities, first two leaves creased, titlepage creased with vertical repair through center, occasional marginal tears. Minute foxing, primarily on architectural plans, as usual. Save for the slightly stained image of H.L. Atherton's manse, photo-lithographs remain clean and bright. Very good. In a cloth case, leather label. This book is the first large-scale use of photo-lithography in the United States, a medium which did not come into general use for another two decades. Its views are based on photographs made by A.A. Turner of large homes along the Hudson from upper Manhattan Island to Dobbs Ferry, mainly summer or pleasure homes of wealthy New Yorkers, and often exhibiting extravagant or playful architecture. The villas are remarkably lavish and some show considerable whimsy. Turner took the pictures in 1858 and 1859, and this lavish work appeared on the eve of the Civil War. All of the views have at least one additional color, and most have two (either brown or green, or both) applied by stencil, with the picture inside a gilt printed border. The images have a slightly surreal quality which adds to the appeal of this remarkable book. HITCHCOCK 1275. TRUTHFUL LENS 173. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 62.

        CORRIDA DE TOROS

      Paris L. Turgis ca. 1860 - EXTREMELY RARE SUITE OF HAND-COLOURED LITHOGRAPHS ON BULLFIGHTING. A complete suite of six large hand-coloured original lithographs by Gustave Doré. 45.5 by 61.4 cm, Each plate with the running title 'Corrida de Toros', individual captions in Spanish and French and with 'G. Doré del. A fine set with occasional evidence of age. FIRST ISSUE AND VERY RARE, A SUITE OF IMAGES ON BULL FIGHTING AS SEEN AND CHRONICLED BY GUSTAVE DORÉ. In Corrida de Toros, Doré captured the strength and movement of the bull, the tension, the danger in the ring - it almost seems as if the bull has a chance, not just at survival but of actually conquering the men on foot and horseback who are supremely annoying it to rage. Doré appears to sympathize with the bull and the tragedy of bullfighting rather than the glory of the fighters. &#145;The French artist, Gustave Doré, was born in Strassburg in 1832. In 1848, he moved to Paris where it was noted that "his facility as a draughtsman was extraordinary." He was a prolific worker whose talents and creations are greatly valued to the present day. Doré&#146;s first illustrated story was published when he was only fifteen years old. His talent was evident even earlier, however. At age five he had been a prodigy troublemaker, playing pranks that were mature beyond his years. Seven years later, he began carving in cement. Subsequently, as a young man, he began work as a literary illustrator in Paris, winning commissions to depict scenes from books by Rabelais, Balzac, Milton and Dante. In 1853, Doré was asked to illustrate the works of Lord Byron. This commission was followed by additional work for British publishers, including a new illustrated English Bible. A decade later, he illustrated a French edition of Cervantes's Don Quixote, and his depictions of the knight and his squire, Sancho Panza, have become so famous that they have influenced subsequent readers, artists, and stage and film directors' ideas of the physical "look" of the two characters. Doré also illustrated an oversized edition of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven", an endeavor that earned him 30,000 francs from publisher Harper & Brothers in 1883. Doré's English Bible (1866) was a great success, and in 1867 Doré had a major exhibition of his work in London. This exhibition led to the foundation of the Doré Gallery in Covelant Bond Street. After an illness, he died in January of 1883.
