        Michael RUPPE (1863 Schäflein-Salzburg 1951), Sorrents gebaute Natur, 1902

      - Michael RUPPE (1863 Schäflein-Salzburg 1951), Sorrents gebaute Natur, 1902 -- Technik: -- Aquarell auf Papier, unten rechts signiert, bezeichnet und datiert: "M. Ruppe Sorrent. 1902. ". -- Maße: -- 46,8 x 30,6 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, im Rand minimal gebräunt. -- Beschreibung: -- Michael Ruppes künstlerischer Werdegang war von vielen Hindernissen begleitet. Er wurde 1863 als Sohn eines Bergbauern im kleinen Dorf Schäflein im Gottscheer Land (heute Slowenien) geboren. Bald übersiedelte er mit seinen Eltern nach Wamberg und besuchte zuerst die Volksschule in Nesseltal und später die Gottscheer Fachschule für Korbflechterei. Zu seinem Glück entdeckte sein Professor für Zeichenkunst, Julius Hofholzer, seine künstlerische Begabung und brachte ihm methodisch das Zeichnen bei. In Wien versuchte er, auf der Kunstakademie zu studieren, wurde aber wegen der nicht ausreichenden Anzahl an Naturstudien abgewiesen. Nach einem Aufenthalt in Südtirol, wo er Figurenschnitzerei lernte, bewarb er sich an der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule. Diesmal mit Erfolg. Nach der Ausbildung ließ er sich als Bildhauer und Maler in Salzburg nieder. Wie so viele andere Künstler ließ sich auch Michael Ruppe von der Landschaft Kampaniens verzaubern, die mit ihren dramatischen Küstenabschnitten als einer der schönsten Landstriche Italiens gilt. Jacob Philipp Hackert, Oswald Achenbach, Louis Gurlitt wie auch Thomas Ender, einer der wichtigsten Vertreter des Wiener Biedermeier und Landsmann Ruppes, pilgerten über mehrere Jahrzehnte an die Küste Italiens und hielten ihre atemberaubende Schönheit in ihren Werken fest. Die Italiener selbst fanden im Golf von Neapel ebenfalls ihre Inspirationsquelle und gründeten dort die sogenannte Scuola di Posillipo, deren wichtigster Schüler Giacinto Gigante war, und die bis heute als eine der fortschrittlichsten Schulen Italiens auf dem Gebiet der Landschaftsmalerei gilt. Die sturmgepeitschten Klippen und jähen Abgründe, die dunklen Täler und verwunschenen Grotten der Küste bei Neapel berührten den Künstler auf zweierlei Weise. Einerseits wirkte auf den Bildhauer Ruppe die natürliche Topographie der Gegend wie ein Meisterwerk eines Bühnenkünstlers. Andererseits träumte der in bergigem Land groß gewordene Künstler seit seiner frühesten Kindheit vom Leben am Meer. Hier, in dieser paradiesisch anmutenden, sonnenverwöhnten und fruchtbaren Küstenlandschaft am Fuße des Vesuvs wurde sein Traum wahr und unser Blatt ist ein begeisternder Ausdruck seines künstlerischen Könnens, das sich hier entfalten konnte. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [Portfolio]: Tahiti

      Lima, Peru: Courret Hermanos. [1863-64]. First edition. Quarto. String-tied quarter calf and cloth portfolio titled in gilt ("Tahiti."). The portfolio holds 16 different mounted albumen prints of Tahiti, each image is 4.75" x 6.25" (12 x 16 cm), mounted on a 9.5" x 12.5" (24 x 32 cm) sheet. Some repair to the spine of the cloth portfolio, some small splits in the folds, very good, the images are fine with slight soiling on some of the mats (one image displays some damage but only as copied from the negative). Each print bears a blind stamp on the mat: "Courret Hermanos Fotografos Calle Mercaderes 197 Lima," and is accompanied by an autograph notation in pencil identifying the scene on the verso of the individual mats. Among the earliest photographs of Tahiti preceded only by the limited work of Gustav Viaud who arrived one year before. Courret was a French-born photographer who arrived in Peru in 1860, and formed his own studio with his brother in 1863. He left Lima in September of 1863 to visit Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands. One can follow his itinerary in the contemporary notices that appeared in Le Messager de Tahiti, the local newspaper published weekly in Papeete. He left Tahiti in March of 1864 and returned to Lima, worked in his studio as a photographer, and sold the photographs of Tahiti individually and in groups.This collection includes views of the capitol city of Papeete with Europeanized streets, government buildings, single story homes, a small dock with dugout canoes, native huts, native children dressed in white assembled seated in the forecourt of a building (perhaps a church), several views of the harbor with sailing vessels, a waterfall, and street scenes.Rare. Courret's images of Peru and surrounding South American countries appear in the marketplace (nine auction records in the last 14 years, all for single images), but even single images of his Tahitian views are exceptionally uncommon. OCLC locates a single similar portfolio (Getty Museum) with only seven prints (under the title Views of Tahiti, noting that the title was devised by the cataloger); absent from both Kroepelien, Tuimata and O'Reilly and Reitman, Bibliographie de Tahiti et de la Polynesis Francaise; Trehin, Tahiti (pp. 40 - 55). . A remarkable portfolio of rarely seen images. .

        Perhaps the only known letter of JEB Stuart to the Confederate Congress showing his love of horses and commitment to the Cavalry, he explains that he heard from his commanders son " General W.H.F. Lee " regarding an " ?urgent letter on the subject to Gen. R. E. Lee "

      Virginia, April 16, 1863. 7.75" x 10". "War date Letter Signed, ""J.E.B. Stuart,"" 2 pages, 7.75"" x 10"", ""Hd. Qrs. Cavalry Division, Army of Nor Va.,"" April 16, 1863, to the Hon. Muscoe Russell Hunter Garnett (1821-1864), a Virginia Representative to the Confederate States Congress concerning pending legislation concerning the cavalry and the care of horses. Body of text somewhat light, but featuring a strong, bold signature by Stuart, spine fold partly separated, minor separation to one horizontal mailing fold, else fine condition.The letter, which was hand delivered to Garnett by Robert E. Lee's oldest son, Gen. W.H. F. ""Rooney"" Lee, reads in full: ""I understand from Brig. General W.H.F. Lee that you have signified a desire to aid in any legislation needed for the Cavalry service - if we would state succinctly what is wanted. Availing myself of your kind offer I submit the following through his kindness for your consideration. An Act providing for remuneration for Cavalry horses permanently disabled by wounds or rendered permanently unserviceable by accident received when the owner is in the immediate execution of an order - or unavoidably captured by the enemy. The question to be determined by a board to be composed of 3 officers of the Regiment to be designated by the Colonel as the 'disabled horse board' or upon the order of a General officer. extension of the law, authorizing military courts, to each Army Corps or Department, so as to include a Division of Cavalry attached to a grand army - as absolutely necessary to ensure speedy trial and justice, and preserve discipline. (See copy of urgent letter on this subject to Gen. R.E. Lee, April 9th, 1863). A Veterinary Surgeon to each Brigade of Cavalry, to be selected and appointed after thorough examination into his qualifications, with the rank of Major. The amount of saving in horse flesh to the Confederacy by a competent Veterinary Surgeon to each Brigade would be incredible. I assure you that no greater service could be rendered the cavalry of the Provisional Army than the passage of such laws as embrace the foregoing.""A resolution concerning provisions for veterinary surgeons for the cavalry had already been introduced in the Confederate Congress on April 4, 1863. However the Congress went into recess on May 1, not meeting again until December 7, 1863. Within a week, the Confederate Congress said once again ""That the Committee on Military Affairs inquire into the expediency of providing by law for the appointment of a veterinary surgeon, with the rank of captain, to each brigade of cavalry, the appointment to be made upon due examination before a board of at least three colonels of cavalry."" In addition, the Congress ""Resolved, That the Committee on Military Affairs inquire into the expediency of amending the law establishing a military court for each army corps, so as to authorize a similar court to commands of cavalry composed of two or more divisions. Resolved, That the Committee on Military Affairs inquire into the expediency of so amending the law abolishing regimental commissaries as to except the cavalry regiments from it operation."" (Journal of the Confederate Congress, April 4, 1863, 6:292; December 14, 1863, 6:530). It would appear that the issue died in committee as no mention of further action on the matter was recorded. Due to increasing manpower shortages as the war dragged on, it is likely that it proved impossible to find qualified personnel to fill the positions. This is believed to be the only known J.E.B. Stuart field letter addressed to the Confederate Congress in private hands. It was purchased from the descendants of a Union soldier who had captured it during the Fall of Richmond in 1865."

        W. Alvin Lloyd's Southern Rail-Road Map, 1863

      Mobile, AL: W. Alvin Lloyd (Lith. By W.R. Robertson, Mobile), [after June 20]1863. Lithographed map on thin paper, 16 1/2 x 21 1/2 inches, with light pink, yellow, and green coloring, delineating the railroad systems of the Confederacy, with Texas included in the Atlantic Ocean under the Carolinas, and a large inset of Charleston in the peninsula created by the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Hundreds of towns serviced by the railways are included. Parrish & Willingham 6182 locates three copies (Huntington, Virginia State Library, Virginia Historical Society). OCLC adds two copies (Duke, Virginia). Folds flattened, paper gently toned with a few insignificant spots, wash color faded. A beautiful copy. The main map depicts the rail network of the Confederacy as far west as Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri, with an inset at lower right continuing the map into Texas. Hundreds of towns serviced by the railways are shown, and tiny stars indicate the locations of forts, coastal batteries and other military installations. At the top of the map a rather curious inset depicts the vicinity of Charleston, South Carolina. The publication date can be narrowed to the latter half of 1863, as the map omits from the Confederacy the western part of Virginia, which seceded from Virginia and rejoined the Union on June 20 of that year. The map is remarkable for having been published in Mobile in mid- or late 1863, at a time when the Federal blockade drastically reduced shipping in and out of Mobile Bay. The export of cotton was all but shut down by 1863, and the supply situation became sufficiently dire that food riots erupted in April and again later that year. In fact, only one other map was published in Mobile during the Civil War, being an 1863 plan of the siege of Vicksburg. The map is printed on very thin paper and bears fold patterns consistent with its having been tipped into a pamphlet or booklet. However, there are no other signs of binding, and this writer believes this impression was separately issued (The thin paper may simply have been poor-quality Confederate stock, and the map could have been folded for filing.) In 1864 Lloyd seems to have published a new edition, as we find the following notice in the Richmond Sentinel for January 9 of that year: ?"We have received from W. Alvin Lloyd, Esq., of Mobile, a copy of his Railroad Map for 1864. It is well executed and is represented to be very accurate. As the name of every station is distinctly marked upon the map, it will aid materially all having business over the roads, military, gentlemen, &c.?" Muddying the waters somewhat, the title page of Lloyd?'s Southern Railroad Guide (Atlanta, June 1864) advertises the inclusion of a ?"new railroad map.?" That work is extraordinarily rare, however, and it has not yet been possible to compare that map and the one offered here. It remains unclear whether this ?"new?" map is identical to ours, to the 1864 map mentioned by the Richmond Sentinel, or is another production altogether. In any case, Lloyd?'s map is very rare, with Parrish & Willingham and OCLC locating a total of eight examples, of which none are in Alabama institutions. There is no record of the map having previously appeared on the market. W. Alvin Lloyd and W.R. Robertson Before moving on to Mobile, Lloyd seems to have been in New Orleans, where in 1857 he published W. Alvin Lloyd's Steamboat and Railroad Guide. Little biographical information on Lloyd is available, but the Richmond Examiner for January 8, 1864 offers the following grisly episode: ?"We take occasion here to correct the report, which we published some time ago, that Mr. Lloyd was dead, having been killed in a street fight in Mobile. The facts are these: A party of Yankees living in Mobile, infuriated by Mr. Lloyd?'s exposure of them, attacked him in the street, and in the affair he received nine pistol wounds, some of them very severe, which disabled him and confined him to his bed for several weeks…. He is still in a crippled condition, being on crutches.?" Lithographer W. R. Robertson also produced the aforementioned map of the siege of Vicksburg by T.S. Hardee (Mobile, 1863) and the plates for S.H. Goetzel?'s Rifle and Infantry Tactics. He is not listed in Peters?' America on Stone. References Parrish & Willingham, Confederate Imprints, #6182 (examples at Huntington, Virginia State Library, Virginia Historical Society). OCLC adds examples at Boston Athenaeum, Duke, Harvard, North Carolina, and Virginia. A Google search yields another example at the North Carolina State Archives. Not in Modelski, Railroad Maps of the United States; Phillips, List of Maps of America; Rumsey; or Stephenson, Civil War Maps. Neither Americana Exchange nor Antique Map Price Record lists any examples having been offered for sale.

        [CONTEMPORARY COPY OF A MANUSCRIPT LETTER FROM GEORGE M. WILLING TO THE EDITOR OF THE UNITED STATES RAILROAD AND MINING REGISTER, DESCRIBING EXPLORATIONS IN ARIZONA AND PROPOSING A MINING COMPANY TO EXPLOIT THE GOLD AND SILVER OF THE REGION]

      [Washington, D.C. (but copied in Philadelphia)]. 1863.. [6]pp. of manuscript on the rectos only of six folio sheets. With original mailing envelope. Horizontal folds. Very good. An interesting pair of documents, being contemporary copies of an original manuscript on the potential of mining in Arizona, sent by George M. Willing to Thomas S. Fernon, editor of the UNITED STATES RAILROAD AND MINING REGISTER. Willing's letter was comprised of two parts, a description of "Dr. G.M. Willing's Discoveries of Gold and Silver Mining in the New Territory of Arizona," and a plan for forming a company to mine in the territory. Having been unsuccessful during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush a few years earlier, George Willing led a party of prospectors to Arizona in the early 1860s. Willing would later become notorious in Arizona history for his role in the frauds of James Reavis, the so-called "Baron of Arizona." Despite the tarnishing of his reputation in Reavis' schemes, Willing did do significant work in searching for gold and silver in Arizona, as is documented by this report. Fernon has attested at the conclusion that the present document is an actual copy of Willing's original report and proposal, made in December 1863, just a few months after Willing sent Fernon the originals. The first three pages describe the location and qualities of several areas examined in Arizona, including in the San Juan Mountains, the "La Plata District," and along the "Unka Weep River." The areas described are all ravines with nearby rivers, which would facilitate Wiling's hydraulic mining plans. Following the three pages describing the discoveries Willing appends a three-page "Proposed Plan of Operations" in which he spells out his plans for mining in Arizona. He calls for $100,000 to pay the expenses of fifty men for two years, and argues that it will be cheaper and more efficient to outfit the company in California, rather than east of the Rockies. Willing contends that Indians would not be a concern, and that "the company will have protection from the government troops on the whole route and in the occupancy of the country." He goes on to describe in detail his proposed hydraulic mining operations, comparing the potential of the region to that of the Quartz Hill mines in Colorado. An early and interesting report on Arizona mining.

        3 autograph letters signed to Archibald Smith plus 4-page mathematical autograph manuscript

      Cambridge, 1863-68. Three Mathematical Autograph Letters, Signed, Plus a Four Page Autograph Mathematics Manuscript Cayley, Arthur (1821-95). (1) Autograph letter signed (?A. C.?) to Archibald Smith (1813-72), written in the margins of an autograph letter signed from Smith to Cayley. 1 page. London, 9 August 1863 [date of Smith?s letter]. 280 x 226 mm. (2) Autograph letter signed to Smith. 3 ?" 1/2pp. Cambridge, 14 November 1866. 180 x 112 mm. (3) Autograph letter signed to Smith. 3pp. Cambridge, 19 October 1868. 180 x 112 mm. (4) Autograph manuscript (originally enclosed with Cayley?s 19 Oct. 1868 letter). 4ff., tied with linen tape. 412 x 257 mm. N.p., n.d. [1868]. Together 4 items. Very minor marginal tears in nos. (1) and (4), otherwise very good. Exceptionally rare mathematical correspondence from Arthur Cayley, one of the founders of the British school of pure mathematics, consisting of three autograph letters, all containing mathematics, plus an extensive 4-page mathematical proof written on four extra-large legal sheets. These are the first mathematical letters or manuscripts by Cayley that we have seen on the market in over forty years. Cayley was the author of over 900 papers covering nearly every aspect of modern mathematics; his greatest contributions were his development of the algebra of matrices, his work in non-Euclidean geometry and n-dimensional geometry, and his contributions to invariant theory. A large number of mathematical constructs bear his name, including Cayley?s theorem (group theory), the Cayley-Hamilton theorem (linear algebra), Cayley?s formula (graph theory) and the Cayley-Klein model (hyperbolic geometry). Cayley?s correspondent was Archibald Smith, who helped to found the Cambridge Mathematical Journal in 1836 and made significant contributions to the study of magnetism and the Earth?s magnetic field. Both Cayley and Smith were alumni of Trinity College, Cambridge and both subsequently entered Lincoln?s Inn to study law, with Smith being called to the bar in 1841 and Cayley in 1849. Cayley remained in the legal profession until 1863, at which time he left the bar to take the newly established Sadleirean professorship of pure mathematics at Cambridge. It is evident from our letters that Smith and Cayley had a cordial relationship based on their shared love for mathematics; Smith apparently was in the habit of sending Cayley mathematical problems and requesting his help in solving them. Letter (1) contains both Smith?s query and Cayley?s response; in it Smith asked Cayley to give him "a simple construction for the following problem. Given three points in a plane to draw the straight line such that the sum of the squares of the perpendiculars shall be a minimum." Cayley responded by writing his solution in the margins of Smith?s letter: "Considering the points as material points of equal mass, then taking the origin at the C. G. it is easy to show that the required line is the principal axis of least moment. E.g. if the three points be an isosceles base [...] less than 60° required line is [parallel] to base?"if greater than 60° it is [perpendicular] to base?"if equal 60° or triangle is equilateral there the position is indeterminate. The construction for the principal axes depends of course on finding the axes of an elliptic. A. C." In letter (2), dated 1866, Cayley gave the solution to another of Smith?s mathematical queries; ?it comes out easily & prettily enough.? Cayley stated the problem and solution as follows: "Given two lines A, B & a point O, to draw from O to the lines A, B two lines of [equal] length & enclosing a given [angle] . Imagine the line A rigidly connected with O and let it revolve round this point thro? the given [angle] , so as to assume the position A?. Then if P be any point in A and P? the corresponding point in A?, it is clear that OP = OP? & [angle] POP? = . . ." In letter (3), dated 1868, Cayley enclosed the four-page autograph manuscript listed above under no. (4), containing ?a solution, such as I have been able to obtain, of your problem, but the solution is I am afraid in a form which will not be of any use to you. May I send the problem?"of course in your name?"to the Educational Times; it is very likely that you will so obtain a solution of it in a more practical form; and at any rate, the problem, qu? problem is an excellent one.? In the manuscript Cayley stated the problem as follows: "Considering any two circles O, O? and taking M, M? the corresponding points in the line OO?, let the angles MP, M?P? be respectively , ?" where is a variable angle; it is required to find the envelope of the line PP?." Cayley?s solution covers four folio pages and includes several equations and two diagrams. Biggs et al., Graph Theory, ch. 3. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.

        [Portfolio]: Tahiti

      Lima, Peru: Courret Hermanos. [1863-64]. First edition. Quarto. String-tied quarter calf and cloth portfolio titled in gilt ("Tahiti."). The portfolio holds 16 different mounted albumen prints of Tahiti, each image is 4.75" x 6.25" (12 x 16 cm), mounted on a 9.5" x 12.5" (24 x 32 cm) sheet. Some repair to the spine of the cloth portfolio, some small splits in the folds, very good, the images are fine with slight soiling on some of the mats (one image displays some damage but only as copied from the negative). Each print bears a blind stamp on the mat: "Courret Hermanos Fotografos Calle Mercaderes 197 Lima," and is accompanied by an autograph notation in pencil identifying the scene on the verso of the individual mats. Among the earliest photographs of Tahiti preceded only by the limited work of Gustav Viaud who arrived one year before. Courret was a French-born photographer who arrived in Peru in 1860, and formed his own studio with his brother in 1863. He left Lima in September of 1863 to visit Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands. One can follow his itinerary in the contemporary notices that appeared in Le Messager de Tahiti, the local newspaper published weekly in Papeete. He left Tahiti in March of 1864 and returned to Lima, worked in his studio as a photographer, and sold the photographs of Tahiti individually and in groups.This collection includes views of the capitol city of Papeete with Europeanized streets, government buildings, single story homes, a small dock with dugout canoes, native huts, native children dressed in white assembled seated in the forecourt of a building (perhaps a church), several views of the harbor with sailing vessels, a waterfall, and street scenes.Rare. Courret's images of Peru and surrounding South American countries appear in the marketplace (nine auction records in the last 14 years, all for single images), but even single images of his Tahitian views are exceptionally uncommon. OCLC locates a single similar portfolio (Getty Museum) with only seven prints (under the title Views of Tahiti, noting that the title was devised by the cataloger); absent from both Kroepelien, Tuimata and O'Reilly and Reitman, Bibliographie de Tahiti et de la Polynesis Francaise; Trehin, Tahiti (pp. 40 - 55). . A remarkable portfolio of rarely seen images. .

        An original Matthew Brady photograph of Ulysses Grant, the horse-lover, posing with Cincinnati, his favorite mount

      n.p., n.d.. 10" x 8". "Mounted albumen, 4"" x 2.75"" on its original 10"" x 8"" mount bearing the imprint ""Brady"" and ""Washington"" just below a photograph of Ulysses Grant standing next to his favorite horse, Cincinnati. Identified on the verso in pencil: ?Gen Grant and Mount Cincinnatus.? Light dampstains, mild foxing and toning to mount with some minor chips and tears which do not affect image.Grant was a great admirer of horses, and became an adept rider at an early age. At West Point he excelled at horsemanship and gave an impressive jumping display at his graduation. During the Civil War, Grant had several mounts, including Kangaroo?"a thoroughbred who was found emaciated on the battlefield of Shiloh and Jeff Davis?"whom he acquired on the Mississippi plantation of Jeff Davis' brother, Joseph. Following the Battle of Chattanooga in late 1863, Grant travelled to St. Louis, where he received a summons from a gentleman, who himself unable to ride due to illness and a great admirer of the general, offered his own horse, a son of Lexington, who at the time was the fastest four-mile thoroughbred in the United States. Grant graciously accepted the horse, and named him Cincinnati. Cincinnati (c. 1860-1878), who stood seventeen hands high, soon became Grant's favorite horse, and it was on this mount that he rode to Appomattox to negotiate Lee's surrender. Grant allowed only two other people to ride him: Admiral David Ammen (who had saved Grant from drowning as a boy), and Abraham Lincoln, who rode Cincinnati daily while at City Point in 1865. The present photograph was likely taken in late 1863 or early 1864, but before March 1864, when Lincoln commissioned Grant a Lieutenant (3 star) General (note that the saddle blanket only bears two stars in this image)."
