She clutches a packet of Chirishi [toilet paper] in her right hand. She is on her back, spread wide and open, he penetrates her fully-exposed vagina revealing his penis half-way inside her. He clutches her around the back of her neck with both arms, holding her Kimono firmly. He is flushed and pink-faced in ecstasy. . 6. A man makes love and enjoys two women. His penis penetrates the closest woman and sucks her nipple, while inserting his fingers into the vagina of the second. Both women have exposed vagina's. All three display very bright red-pink-flushed faces in fits of sexual passion. * VERSO OR BACK SIDE OF THE ALBUM: . 7. A naked woman is on her back, spread-eagle, right leg held up by his left arm.

Love fluids flow from her vagina. Their Kimonos are pulled up to their hips, revealing their genitals. She is clutches him tightly holding his Kimono fast. Her face is brightly flushed pink. A white cockatoo observes from his cage. . 11. A night scene, the man has secretly entered his lover's room, he uses his Kimono to block out the lantern light. Holding a lighted candle in his left hand, he sheds light to reveal the sight of the couple's love-making. She is on her back, knees spread wide revealing her naked vagina, he sits on his knee, fully penetrating her vagina, which flows love-fluids. He holds her firmly with right hand. She is locked in a passionate grip behind her neck, eyes closed lost in ecstasy. His face and neck are pink-flushed with sexual passion. Her Kimono is thrown open, her bright-red under Kimono above her pubic area. . 12. The last scene is a classic of Japanese erotica. A man visits his beloved and favorite prostitute.

He sits back resting against the door jam near naked as his Kimono is pulled off his shoulders. His penis penetrates her vagina as he suddenly notices a person just outside the doorway. . Just beyond the open sliding doors is an unashamed young prostitute, who is voyeuring the couple making love, which greatly excites her. Pulling her Kimono up over her back and on all fours, reveals her naked rear end and vagina. She reaches under and between her legs with her right hand, masturbating her vagina with her fingers. Her whole body is a sexually excited pink-flush. . *** . EXCELLENT AND HIGHLY SKILLED PAINTING TECHNIQUE AND DESIGN: . This adorable and charming miniature album is a very solid, with excellent color and fine detail, executed by a first class artist. Much attention has been paid to the facial details, sensual facial expressions, the elaborately designed Kimono, rooms, their design and art work, and every facet of common life during the mid-19th century Japanese culture. The book reflects the average person, and their dwellings, costume, coiffeur and erotic social customs. . *** EROTIC ART BANNED BY THE SHOGUN: From the Tokugawa period [1604], the Shogun banned erotica in all forms. This was an effort to demonstrate to foreign missionaries and foreign traders [i.e. Dutch merchants in the Nagasaki] that the Japan and the Japanese were a high-cultured people, not a "base people or culture" by prohibiting erotic books and paintings from their culture. . Being illegal, these books mostly circulated privately or "underground," being passed around discreetly. Artists either avoided signing their erotic woodblock-printed books and prints, or signed them with some ironic anti-political or anti-Shogunate name. Nevertheless the public could easily identify the painting style and know the artist's name. Many artists were jailed for either erotic art production or anti-Shogunate political satirical books and prints. . Regardless, substantially large number of anti-Shogun and erotic works were popularly circulated in society continually down to the modern period. Erotica in Japan is an ancient art form, continuing for millenum. . *** SIZE AND FORMAT: The album is small, commonly called "Mamebon" or "Bean Book" in Japan due to its miniature size. This kind of miniature book was easily concealed in the Kimono sleeve and joyfully carried around and jshared among friends, loaned or sold in the street. . *** REFERENCES: LANE, Richard.: IMAGES FROM THE FLOATING WORLD: THE JAPANESE PRINT, INCLUDING AN ILLUSTRATED DICTIONARY OF UKIYO-E. .

        A screen of the four seasons, mountains and water, or, Living live through the four seasons

      1860. Toshin. Handscroll, measuring 10 3/4 by 331 inches (273x8407mm). An elegant makimono-e painting in sumi ink and color wash on paper by 83-year-old artist Toshin. Handscrolls are meant to be viewed right to left in sections, traveling arms-length by arms-length through the continuous landscape. This painting takes the viewer through each of the four seasons in a mountainous landscape, dotted with buildings and tiny figures and crossed by roads and rivers. It opens with a green spring bustling with travelers. Summer is blown in with a driving hail storm before gentling into autumn, where a full moon glows overhead. The journey ends in winter with a pristine snowscape. Calligraphic text at the beginning and end of the scroll give the title, artist, and year, and explains that the scroll is "after a painting by Hojo Bokkei, copied by Kakusenro Sesson." A few of the seams in the paper are beginning to come unglued, otherwise this lovely painting is in near fine condition. Housed in a wooden box, chipped to one corner.

      [Japan 1860], n.p. Large sheet, 96 x 1m 44cm., gouache,very clean work no worming or other condition issues, painted on 16 joined sheets of Washi paper to make one large sheet,fine water-color painting. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL PAINTED ART WORK *** *** *** . . FROM JAPAN'S OLDEST MYTHOLOGY KOJIKI & NIHON SHOKI . . . THE ORIGINS OF THE EMPEROR . . . OTOHIME GYO RETSU ZU: . . . PROCESSION OF OTOHIME, DAUGHTER OF THE SEA GOD . . *** OTOHIME is a goddess in Japanese mythology and is featured in the Kojiki as well as Nihon Shoki. Also known as "Luminous Jewel". A Japanese goddess, the beautiful daughter of the sea-king Ryujin. She married Hoori and gave birth to a son after which she turned into a dragon. . * Per the Japanese text brushed on the verso upper left corner: "239 ban, [dated] Ansei 7th, Kanoe-Saru-doshi, 2 gatsu jojun [end of February], OTOHIME GYO RETSU ZU" . English: "#239, [dated] Ansei 7th, monkey zodiac year, end of Feb.: [1860] . * PAINTING TITLE PER VERSO: "THE FIGURE OF PRINCESS OTOHIME'S PROCESSION, THE DAUGHTER OF THE SEA GOD" . "Toyotama-hime" [Japanese for "Lady Bountiful Soul"], better known as Otohime, is a goddess in Japanese mythology and is featured in the Kojiki as well as Nihon Shoki. She is the beautiful daughter of Ryujin, the "God of the Sea." . *** A STUNNING ORIGINAL POLYCHROME GOUACHE PAINTING: . This original color watercolor painting shows the lively procession of OTOHIME and her hand maid. She is followed by a flag and umbrella bearer. Also following is a man with a pair of deer antlers [good omen], a man with a small red offering table with peaches, the Wind God and his thunder-drum. Another flag bearer, his helper, followed by two others, one holds a staff, the other an offering of golden egg. . The items carries are symbolic good fortune and wealth in terms of deer antlers, peaches and the golden egg represent ancient Chinese [also used by the Japanese] of omens of good fortune and good luck. . *** THE PAINTING: . Per the Japanese brushed text on the verso, there is a number found, meaning this panel of several was part of a larger work, per the chronology found in Clark [see below]. . This panel of several paintings was part of a restoration of Zojo-ji [temple] in Shiba. In 1859, KANO Toei & Kyosai "participates in a repair project at the Zojo-ji temple." See Clark. . Although Kyosai had officially left the Kano school in 1854, by participating in the restoration of Tokugawa's family temple in Shiba, he was showing loyalty to the Tokugawa family a good reason to volunteer his skills to the temple. It is also noteworthy that his mentor [Kano Toei] also participated in the restoration, and in all likelihood Kyosai joined his master in a sign of respect and loyalty to him. . Based on this chronology, it is clear Kyosai was one of the painters who worked at Zojo-ji temple along with his mentor and master teacher, Kano Toei. It was not uncommon at this time for schools to volunteer teachers and students to do temple restoration, and art work, painting, replacing or enhancing paintings and large murals. . This item's date matches the restoration dates for the Zojo-ji temple, which began in 1859 and continued into 1860. . This panel was unused, in the restoration, it may have been a precursor to the final painting which was actually used in the restoration project. It matches the scenes found in Zojo-ji temple restoration. The work is the exact style of others painted by Kyosai and his genre. The caricatures of the people in this painting reflect Kyosai's style exactly, the theme of his eccentric humor, expressing his love for creativity and the joy of painting. . It is entirely within Kyosai's bizarre character to undertake and devote himself to such a project as illustrating the famous myth of OTOHIME in more than 200 deluxe, extra large-size format paintings. . This restoration project could also have been a 'paying job' for Kyosai as at that time, he did not seem to be employed but in 1858 he began to design "Kyoga [crazy pictures]. It was in 1857 he married Okyo, the daughter of a Rimpa painter Suzuki Kiitsu, but Okyo died in 1859, and he remarried Tose, who died in 1860. . It is more than likely Kyosai being a Buddhist, he felt it was his religious obligation to do pennants by contributing to and drawing Buddhist or such traditional images as a way to placate the loss of his wife... . *** THE STORY OF OTOHIME, DAUGHTER OF THE SEA GOD: . Because this work was part of the Zojo-ji temple restoration, it can not be considered a commercial painting, one that was casually drawn and put on the market for sale. This was part of a commissioned restoration, financed by some benefactor to the temple, and most likely supported by the Tokugawa family. . ONE OF JAPAN'S EARLIEST AND MOST FAMOUS MYTHS: . The story of OTOHIME, DAUGHTER OF THE SEA GODD is one of Japan's oldest and most famous myths, known to all Japanese. Treasured as one of the most important in the ancient pantheon, it is found in the earliest writing about the origin of Japan and the Emperor, in the KOJIKI and the NIHON SHOKI. . This kind of larger paper illustrated story would take months to complete, by It would also take devotion to the subject and focus, with responsibility to produce a good number of paints daily. This was something Kyosai could and would do ! . *** THE ARTIST/PAINTER: This work is unsigned, which is expected as part of a larger series of paintings. If this was the work of Kyosai, it falls entirely within the dates during his period of work, produced when he was 29 years old. . The caricature in the faces and fluid bodies in motion, the "flowing" style are his. Although there is no signature, and it is a true reflection of Kawanabe's work, we are attributing it to him. . Another convincing point is that this kind of painting and meticulous style is also found in his famous instructional showing various 'schools' of painting in his KYOSAI GADEN. See below. . *** WHO WAS KAWANABE GYOSAI/KYOSAI: [1831-1889]: Kawanabe Kyosai was a superb artist, in the words of a critic, "an individualist and an independent, perhaps the last virtuoso in traditional Japanese painting". . Living through the Edo period to the Meiji period, Kyosai witnessed Japan transform itself from a feudal country into a modern state. Born at Koga, he was the son of a Samurai. His first aesthetic shock was at the age of nine when he picked up a human head apart from a corpse in the Kanda river. . After working for a short time as a boy with Utagawa Kuniyoshi, he received his artistic training in the Kano school, but soon abandoned the formal traditions for the greater freedom of the popular school. During the political ferment which produced and followed the revolution of 1867, Kyosai attained a reputation as a caricaturist. His very long painting on Makimono" [scroll] The battle of the farts" may be seen as a caricature of this ferment. . He was arrested three times and imprisoned by the authorities of the Shogunate. Soon after the assumption of effective power by the Emperor, a great congress of painters and men of letters was held at which Kyosai was present. . He again expressed his opinion of the new movement in a caricature, which had a great popular success, but also brought him into the hands of the police this time of the opposite party. After this time, he changed his name from Kyo [crazy or wild] to any one of 19 other "Go" [studio names] he used. However after the police jailed him, he avoided use of "Kyo" but returned back to it with three other "GO" that used the same character "Kyo" [crazy & wild], such as #7 "Baiga Kyosha," #10 "Kyosai, #12 Kyosha Gaishi, #16 "Shosho Kyosai" Quoted from Roberts below, see that reference for more details. . Kyosai is considered by many to be the greatest successor of Hokusai, as well as the first political caricaturist of Japan. His work mirrored his life in its wild and undisciplined nature and occasionally reflected his love of drink. *** . REFERENCE: . More on OTOHIME: * KAWANABE Gyosao [ later known as Kyosai]: Is well collected by world museums . KYOSAI GADAN: 1887, 4 vol. set]: In this work, he outlines and exhibits a wide variety of "styles" of painting. In this work there are several examples of this kind or school of painting. * Wikipedia stated about this book: "The most important work about Kyosai's art and life was written by himself: Kyosai Gadan, or "Kyosai's Treatise on Painting", half autobiography and half painting manual. * WESTERN APPRECIATORS: Many westerners came to visit Kyosai, and their memoirs about the artist are valuable. The two important ones, both rare, were: Émile Étienne Guimet, Promenades Japonaises, Paris, 1880. * Josiah Conder: "Paintings and Studies by Kawanabe Kyosai," Tokyo, 1911. Conder was a serious student of Japanese art; after some initial rejections, he was accepted as Kyosai's pupil, and accompanied him for ten years until the master's death. * Timothy Clark, Demon of painting: the art of Kawanabe Kyosai, p.186 chronology, and the drawing #21, p.58 is very similar to the pose found in our painting of OTOHIME [Toyotama-hime], both in pose, facial quality, hair style and the general perspective. * ROBERTS, Laurance P.: A DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS: PAINTING, SCULPTURE, CERAMICS, PRINTS, LACQUER, p.100, stated of him: [Kyosai] "...was marked by a wild, eccentric humor...caricatures of full of fantasy and invention..." * [KAWANABE KYOSAI MEMORIAL MUSEUM]. KAWANABE KYOSAI DOKU HON. * OTOHIME: Nihon Jinmei Daijiten [Toyotama-hime]. Tokyo: Shogakukan. 2012. . *** .

        Palaeontology or a Systematic Summary of Extinct Animals and their Geological Relations.

      Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black, 1860. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (215 x 138 mm). xv [1], 420 pp., folding table, several text illustrations. Bound without half-title and publisher's advertisements at end. Contemporary three-quarter morocco, spine with 5 raised bands and gilt lettering, marbled edges, marbled endpapers (some rubbing to boards and extremities). Provenance: illegible signature to title-page. Internally generally a fresh and clean copy. ----FIRST EDITION. Richard Owen's Palaeontology defines, describes and classifies all the fossil animal forms then known, and discusses the origin of species, commenting on the theories of Buffon, Lamarck, the then anonymous author of Vestiges of Creation, Wallace and Darwin. Richard Owen's career as an outstanding paleontologist began when he was cataloging the Hunterian Collection of human and animal anatomical specimens which had passed to the Royal College of Surgeons in London. His public lectures on anatomy were attended by Darwin, and he was entrusted with the classification and description of the fossil vertebrates sent back by Darwin from the Beagle voyage. He was responsible for coining many of the terms now used in anatomy and evolutionary biology, including the word 'dinosaur'. Very Good.

Frei übersetzt: - An Herrn Frant. Sebl, Bruder eines Vereins. Lieber Bruder. Deinen netten Brief habei ich eben erhalten und ich beeile mich, Dir zu antworten. Die Sache ist so: Wir haben jeden Mittwoch zwischen 1/2 8 und 10 Uhr Versammlung Sup:. Cons.: (?) in meinem Atelier. Am Dienstag Abend gibt normalerweise unsere Arbeit. So ist sehr Schwer sich das einzurichten - aber wie ich eben erfahre, denke ich, daß unsere Arbeit am Dienstag weg fällt. Darüber schreibe ich gerade dem Bruder Moucka. Er wird es wissen, weil, wie mir telegraphierte Bruder Dr. Thein, er bis jetzt für unsere Arbeit am Dienstag nicht eingeladen hat. Dann könntest Du den Vortrag anstatt für Mittwoch - für Dienstag 7-8 Uhr bekannt machen, aber sicherheitshalber, bitte ich dich, informier dich bei Bruder Moucka, er wohnt Valentinska Nr. 7 Prag II. Aber er hat kein Telefon, dann könntest Du ihm erreichen, wenn Du jemanden hinschicken würdest, am Mittag - etwa zu 1 Uhr, in der Regel kommt er nach Hause zum Mittagsessen. Ich komme auf jeden Fall nach Prag am Dienstag, und hier erfahre ich, ob die Arbeit gibt oder nicht. Köntest Du mir bitte am Montag Nachmittag telegraphieren, dann brauche ich nicht umsonst vom Bahnhof nach Hause gehen, dann könnte ich ganz gut um 7 Uhr in Atelier des Meister Mary sein. Letztemal habe ich aufmerksame Zuhörer gehabt. Ich hoffe, daß den es bischen, wenigstens bischen geholfen hat. Anderes habe ich den für das zweitemal versprochen. So bitte ich Dich, teurer Bruder, richte das bitte so ein, wie sich das einrichten läßt, sonst musste ich am Mittwoch nur für eine halbe Stunde, weil die Zuhörer (Hochschulstudenten?) früher nicht zusammen kommen können und ich muß wieder um 7 1/2 Uhr auf der Versammlung sein. Daß sich unser Vereinigung (mit Ital.) schon vollgezogen hat und daß wir uns zugeneigt zu Brüdern Südslawen haben zur gemeinsamen Arbeit, vielleicht wirds Du schon wissen, wenn nicht, erfährst Du sicher bald. Es grüßt Dich aus dem Herzen Bruder: ergeben Mucha - Dabei: eigenhändig adressierter, frankierter gelaufener Briefumschlag. .

        Spinale Kinderlähmung. Monographie.

      Zweite umgearbeitete und vermehrte Auflage. - Stuttgart, J.G. Cotta'scher Verlag, 1860, VIII, 204 pp., 14 getönten lithogr. Taf., Pappband der Zeit. Die erste Monographie über dieses Krankheitsbild von Jakob von Heine (1800-1879). "Erst in dieser stark vermehrten zweiten Auflage, unter Bekanntgabe von vielen neuen Methoden und Erkenntnissen erhielt dieses klassische Werk den Titel "Spinale Kinderlähmung", da er den Sitz der Krankheit im Rückenmark annahm, wenn er sich auch noch nicht auf Sektionsergebnisse stützen konnte. Er teilte das Leiden ein in das akute (primäre) und das chronische (sekundäre) Stadium und unterschied sehr wohl die cerebrale (spastische) Hemiplegie von der spinalen Lähmung, die er "Paralysis infantilis spinalis" nannte. Ferner führte er sehr genaue Temperaturmessungen an den verschiedenen Körpergegenden durch und stellte dabei Unterschiede der Hautemperatur zwischen der gesunden und gelähmten Seite fest auch das Zurückbleiben im Wachstum entging ihm nicht. Ebenso wies er schon auf das epidemische Auftreten hin, ferner auf die Kontrakturen und die anderen Fehlstellungen...." "..namentlich die zweite aus dem Jahre 1860, deren reicher Inhalt nur in Stichworten angedeutet werden konnte, sind als wahre klassische Werke zu bezeichnen nach ihrer Lektüre wird man es voll und ganz verstehen (...) das die Bezeichnung einer der schlimmsten Plagen, welche Kinder und Erwachsene befallen kann, mit dem Namen des deutschen Orthopäden Jacob von Heine (1800-1879) als 'Heine-Medinische Krankheit' verbunden bleiben wird. Ferner war Jakob Heine wahrscheinlich der erste in Deutschland welcher die orthopädische Gymnastik in seinem Institut bei Cannstatt einführte.""In 1940 Heine (1799-1879) gave the first description of acute anterior polyomelitus in a slender monograph of 78 pages. "Twenty years later (1860) in a much enlarged edition Heine gathered again his rich experiences, announcing many new methods and observations. He called his new monograph "Spinale Kinderlähmung" as he assumed the seat of the disease to be in the spinal cord --- These tow monographs by Heine, especially the second of 1860 ... must be considered true classics ... "Valentin After a brief account of the acute or primary stage comes a detailed description of the second or paralytic stage with numerous clinical histories of the different forms of paralysis, followed by sections on etiology and pathologic anatomy, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment, especially by orthopaedics means. The 29 lithographic figures illustrate deformities and apparatus. The book contains numerous references to the literature. (Fischbein et al)Valentin, Gesch. d.

Contemporary cloth over marbled boards, spine with floral gilt decoration and gilt lettering (extremities little chipped and rubbed, minor chipping to hinges and spine ends, corners bumped).

Still a very good copy of this work. ----Freeman 672 (2nd edition); PMM 344b and Horblit 23b (both first English ed.). THE RARE FIRST GERMAN EDITION OF "THE MOST INFLUENTIAL SCIENTIFIC WORK OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY. Its publication aroused world-wide criticism and controversy, both religious and scientific" (Grolier/Horblit). The whole edition of 1250 copies was sold on the day of publication. Though the work was initially prompted by observations, made during his travels aboard the Beagle from 1831 to 1836, of the biology and geology of isolated islands, Darwin spent nearly 25 years after his return to England accumulating evidence and considering his theory before publishing. "Although the theory of evolution can be traced to the ancient Greek belief in the 'great chain of being,' Darwin's greatest achievement was to make this centuries-old 'underground' concept acceptable to the scientific community by cogently arguing for the existence of a viable mechanism -- natural selection -- by which new species evolve over vast periods of time. Darwin's influence on biology was fundamental and continues to be felt today" (Garrison-Morton 220). Erste deutsche Ausgabe, übertragen vom großen Paläontologen Hch. Gg. Bronn (1800-1862), der "trotz der Verschiedenheit der Meinung der erste war, der, die eminente Bedeutung von Darwin's Buch richtig einschätzend, demselben in einer vorzügl. Übersetzung die weiteste u. rascheste Verbreitung verschaffte u. dadurch nicht wenig beitrug zu dem raschen Siege der Theorie" (ADB III, 360). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

"Defining nursing as 'helping the patient to live,' Nightingale 'introduced the modern standards of training and esprit de corps, and early grasped the idea that diseases are not 'separate entities, which must exist, like cats and dogs,' but altered conditions, qualitative disturbances of normal physiological processes, through which the patient is passing. While she did not know the bacterial theory of infectious diseases, she realized that absolute cleanliness, fresh air, pure water, light, and efficient drainage are the surest means of preventing them" (Garrison-Morton, History of Medicine, p. 773). "A disciple of the pioneer statistician Adolphe Quetelet, Nightingale supported all of her writings with statistical evidence; a chart on page 78 of the Notes shows the number of women employed as nurses in 1851-- some of them as young as five years of age!"

One of the most important Burton titles, considered by many to be his best piece of writing. Burton travelled with Speke on their second journey together in order to found the "Jebel Kumri", or the "Mountains of the Moon." They made a brief examination of Lake Tanganyika, but with failing health they were forced to return to Kazeh to recuperate. Following this, Burton sent Speke off by himself to investigate a large lake. Speke became convinced that this was the source of the Nile; a conclusion disputed by Burton which led to their falling out and, probably, Speke's mysterious death. This work contains Burton's first attack on Speke in print. Penzer pp67-68. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Three legal documents reporting the sale of a female slave and her child

      Taylor County, Kentucky, 1860. Unbound. Very good. Three one-page Taylor County, Kentucy documents regarding the sale of two slaves, Ann and her son John, as part of an inheritance lawsuit following the death of their owner, James F. Campbell of Taylor County, Kentucky. All three documents are in nice shape. After James F. Campbell, a farmer in Taylor County, Kentucky, died in 1854, his wife, Melinda, and their two children moved in with her father Rezin H. Davis, also of Taylor County. Davis was appointed as guardian of James and Melinda's son, Alfred T. Campbell. Alfred T.'s other grandfather, Alfred Hazelwood, was appointed as the administrator of James F.'s estate. There was friction between the two families regarding disposition of the estate, and Davis won a judgement on behalf of Alfred T. against the estate administered by Hazelwood, and the Circuit Court directed two of the slaves belonging to the estate, Ann and her son James, be sold and that the proceeds go to Davis on behalf of Alfred T. Two of the documents, signed by D. J. Hotchkiss, are promissary notes addressed to George W. Montague, a commissioner of the court. The first, dated 14 November 1859, promises to pay "the sum of Seven Hundred & Eighty Dollars - with interest from this date, being the purchase money for a Negro woman named Ann & her Child named John." Apparently the court found the price paid to be insufficient and directed that Ann and John be sold at auction. In the second document, dated 2 April 1860, Hotchkiss promises to pay Montague "the sum of Nine Hundred * Sixty One dollars with interest therein from this date being the purchase money for a Negro woman named Ann & child John." The third document is an official court document, signed by Montague, reporting that "he did . . . expose to sale to the highest bidder . . . said Slaves Ann & John and D. J. Hotchkiss being the highest bidder for said slaves Ann & John became the purchaser . . . at the sum of Nine hundred and Sixt one Dollars." A telling group of documents that drives home the fact slaves were no more than property to be bought and sold like any other commodity in order to raise money or settle debts.

        Set of Twelve Chinese Junks and Barges.

      c 1860 - A set of twelve Chinese Junks and Barges: Watercolour and gouache studies on pith paper, edged in blue silk ribbon. Framed and glazed in hand-made gold leaf reeded frames. The vessels depicted include variants of the traditional flat-bottomed Junk, the similar but European-hulled Lorcha, State and pleasure barges, and a large floating duck house. Pith came into use for painting to satisfy the increasing demand for small, inexpensive and easily transported souvenirs, following the massive growth in the China Trade in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. Paintings in oils, on board and canvas were costly and difficult to carry home. Earlier and more prestigious export watercolours had often been on a larger scale and painted on fine Chinese paper or on paper imported from Europe. The albums of pith paintings (and later the little glass-fronted boxes) were inexpensive, light, easy to pack and gave the pictures some protection on the long voyage home. Because many were sold in albums and hence protected from the light, they retain their bright colours to this day. Pith comes from the central column of spongy cellular tissue in the stem of a small tree called Tetrapanax Papyrifera, native to south-west China. It has had a variety of uses, some going back many centuries. At the imperial court both men and women wore coloured flowers made from pith in their hair. For use in painting, it is cut by hand with a knife into thin sheets from short lengths of the spongy tissue. Cutting is highly skilled and the constraints of the process mean that the finished sheets for painting seldom, if ever, measure more than about 30cms by 20cms. The sheets are dried, trimmed and used for painting without any further processing. Because of the nature of pith and its cellular structure, the gouache used by the Chinese sat on the surface and produced a bright and even sparkling effect. Very fine detail could be achieved but pith did not lend itself to the flat wash of colour favoured for European watercolours.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Oldenburg, 12. II. 1860. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Umfang- und inhaltsreicher Brief. - „[.] Stephan von Österreich gehörte zu den berühmtesten Mineralsammlern des österreich-ungarischen Reiches, dessen Interesse an den Mineralen bereits mit fünf Jahren erwachte. Nach seiner politischen Ausbildung am Königshof von Wien unternahm er ausgedehnte Erkundungstouren durch das Reich und nutzte während dieser Zeit jede Gelegenheit, berühmte Mineralmuseen und bekannte Mineralfundorte zu besuchen, um seine Sammlung durch eigene Funde oder Käufe zu erweitern. 1845 ehrte der bekannte Mineraloge Wilhelm Ritter von Haidinger seine Bemühungen um die Mineralogie mit der Benennung eines wichtigen Silberminerals und -erzes nach ihm als Stephanit. Die mineralogische Sammlung Stephans von Österreich enthielt bei seinem Tod 1867 rund 20.000 Proben und wurde auf den für damalige Verhältnisse enormen Wert von 300.000 Mark geschätzt. Nach Stephans Tod ging die Mineralsammlung auf das Haus Oldenburg über und wurde bis zu deren Verkauf 1888 an den Unternehmer Carl Rumpff weiter ausgebaut. Nach dessen Tod 1889 wurde die Sammlung schließlich an das Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin übergeben" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde.
