        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Le Verrier"). O. O., 21. V. 1869 [?].

      1869. ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An den Physiker Jules Antoine Lissajous (1822-1880). - Le Verrier war 1845 die Berechnung der Planetenbahn des Neptun gelungen, die er durch Beobachtungen von Störungen im Umlauf des Uranus ermittelt hatte. Auf diesen Berechnungen aufbauend, beobachtete im Jahr darauf Johann Gottfried Galle erstmals den Planeten am Okular seines Teleskops auf der Berliner Sternwarte. "Später versuchte Le Verrier mit der gleichen Methode, Bahnstörungen des Merkur (Periheldrehung) zu erklären, postulierte die Existenz eines Planeten innerhalb der Merkurbahn und nannte diesen Vulkan. Astronomen in aller Welt versuchten, diesen Planeten zu finden, jedoch ohne Erfolg. 1915 bewies jedoch Albert Einstein mit der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, daß sich die Bahnstörungen allein durch das Schwerkraftfeld der Sonne erklären lassen" (Wikipedia). Neben seinen Forschungen zur Himmelsmechanik ging Le Verrier auch "als Erfinder der Wetterkarte in die Geschichte ein. Er baute auf telegraphisch mitgeteilten Daten eine Wettervorhersage auf, erstmals für den 19. Februar 1855, 10 Uhr, für Frankreich, die er der Pariser Akademie der Wissenschaften vortrug. In der Folge entstand der meteorologische Dienst in Frankreich" (ebd.). Sein Name ist einer der 72 auf dem Eiffelturm verewigten. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des "Observatoire Imperial". - Mit kleineren Randläsuren und einem kleinen Fleck am unteren Blattrand. - Die Verso-Seite von Bl. 2 mit kl. Registraturetikett, hs. Numerierung "120" und mit dem verschlungenen Monogrammstempel "LS". - Selten.

        Art Supplement to Appletons' Journal. - The Beach at Long Branch.

      Appleton. 1869. - Wood engraving, fold out Art Supplement to Appletons' Journal 1869, 13 x 19 1/2 inches on sheet size 15 1/2 x 21 inches. Paper loss to lower left corner (just affecting very edge of image), multiple folds as issued, upper horizontal fold line has been backed with Japanese paper, a few short edge tears at lower edge; overall good, clean condition. The prominent late 19th century American artist Winslow Homer worked as an illustrator for Harper's Weekly and other illustrated journals from the 1850s to the mid 1870s, his designs being rendered as wood-engravings. Homer's superior artistic abilities were recognised in this elaborate foldout "art supplement" about which the magazine wrote: Mr. Winslow Homer.gives us a picture of the ease and pleasurable abandon which accompany life at Long Branch. On the beach, more than anywhere else in the world, society throws aside its dignity. Men and women make children of themselves. Those in the water give themselves up to sport, frolicking with each other and with the waves, thoughtless of fashion and its formalities. . . . Our artist suggests an old poetic thought in the letters drawn [the artist's initials], by a young girl, in the sand." This lovely image is in the American Art collection of the Brooklyn Museum.

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. An interesting collection of 8 original postcard photographs, 5 of which - including one from Josephine Baker - are signed and/or inscribed to Marthe Doryans, dancer and actress of the Folies Bergère who somewhat later appeared in the Jean Renoir film, La Chienne.  4 of the photographs by the celebrated photographer most closely associate with the the Parisian Caberet, Walery, and are each signed in ink additionally by him.  <br>Established in 1869, the Folies Bergère was at the height of its fame and popularity from the 1890s' Belle Ã?poque through the 1920s'Années folles. Baker was most noted as a singer, while in her early career she was a celebrated dancer. She was given the nicknames the "Black Venus" or the "Black Pearl", as well as the "Créole Goddess" in anglophone nations, while in France she has always been known in the old theatrical tradition as "La Baker."<br style=""><br style="">

        2 Eigenh. Brief m. U. Wien, 3. Juni und 2. Juli 1869.

      1869. Zusammen 2 SS. auf 2 gefalt. Doppelbll. 4to. Beide Briefe an Wilhelm Schaup (1838-1899): "In Folge Ihrer geneigten Bestellung erlaube ich mir anzuzeigen, daß ich in circa 3 Wochen einen schönen Flügel der gewünschten Gattung zur Verfügung stellen werde, und zugleich die Versicherung zu geben, daß ich es gewiss als Ehrensache betrachten werde Ew Wohlgeboren ein besonders schönes, gelungenes Instrument zu liefern [...]" (Eigenh. Brief mit U., Wien, 3. Juni 1869). "Auf Ihre sehr geschätzte Zuschrift vom 28/6. ist es mir leider sehr schwer eine befriedigende Antwort zu geben. Bösendorfer's Instrumente aus damaliger Zeit sind im allgemeinen gut und solid gearbeitet, und kann ein solches nach mäßiger Benützung und sorgfaltiger Behandlung leicht noch 300 bis 350 fl werth sein, es kann aber auch durch Einwirkung äußerer Umstände, allzu vieles und starkes Spielen (namentlich Walzer), und Unkenntnis des jeweiligen Stimmers kaum mehr einen Werth von 150 fl repräsentieren. Hinüber ein endgültiges Urtheil abzugeben ist mir ohne es gesehen zu haben natürlich ganz unmöglich, so sehr es mir zum Vergnügen gereiche würde, Ew Wohlgeboren in dieser Beziehung bestens dienen zu können [...]" (Eigenh. Brief mit U.; Wien, 2. Juli 1869). - Wilhelm Schaup kaufte 1858 ein kleines Brauhaus und wurde damit zum Begründer der Großbrauerei Zipf in Oberösterreich. Durch technische Modernisierung konnte er die Firma zur größten oberösterreichischen Brauerei machen. Er gründete ein Betriebskrankenhaus sowie eine Betriebskrankenkasse und richtete einen Unterstützungsfonds ein. 1870-93 war er als Mitglied der Fortschrittspartei, dann der Vereinigten Linken Abgeordneter zum Reichsrat. - Nach einer Lehre als Orgelbauer bei Friederici in Hildesheim trat Ehrbar als Praktikant in die Klavierfabrik Eduard Seuffert ein, wurde bald Geschäftsleiter und leitete seit 1855 selbständig die Fabrik. "Er machte erstmals Gebrauch vom Gußrahmen im Klavierbau und bekam seit 1862 eine Reihe von internationalen Preisen für seine Fabrikate. Im franzisko-josephinischen Wien führte Ehrbar einen namhaften Salon und machte sich um die Förderung junger Künstler verdient. 1876/77 ließ er durch Joseph Weninger ein Palais erbauen, in dem sich ein großer Konzertsaal befand" (DBE, Saur). Zu Ehrbar vgl. auch MGG VII, 1105 und X, 1917.

        L'Art Arabe d'après les monuments du Kaire depuis le VIIe siècle jusqu'la fin du XVIIIe. Paris, Morel, [1869-]1877.

      1869. 1 volume of text (4to) and 3 vols. of plates (large folio). Text: 1 bl. f., title leaf, viii, 296 pp., 1 bl. f. With 34 lithogr. plates (all with tissue guards) and 73 text illustrations. Half morocco with giltstamped title to gilt spine. Spine rebacked. Plate volumes all with half title, title, list of contents and a total of 200 engraved plates (130 of which are chromolithographs and 48 tinted lithographs). Plate volumes bound uniformly with text volume in giltstamped half morocco with cloth covers. Very scarce first edition of this splendid, unsurpassed standard work on Islamic art. Prisse d'Avennes spent many years in Egypt after 1826, first as an engineer in the service of Mehmet Ali. After 1836 he explored Egypt disguised as an Arab and using the name Edris Effendi; during this period he carried out archaeological excavations in the valley of the Nile. In 1860, Prisse d'Avennes returned to France with a wealth of documentation and drawings, which he subsequently had reproduced by specially trained draughtsmen and published in this monumental set. "'Arab Art', however, is more than a monument to the author's tenacity, skill, and devotion. For the historian of architecture, it is a precise source, a unique documentary record [...] On an entirely different level, Prisse d'Avennes has provided today's architects, designers, artists, and illustrators with some of the finest examples of measured drawings, pattern details, and illustrations of selected aspects of the built environment of a medieval Islamic city. But 'Arab Art' is not merely an exercise in architectural description. Prisse d'Avennes writes about and records in the plates art forms ranging from elaborately decorated tiles to carpets and fabrics, to Korans and illuminated manuscripts. His text examines how these objects were made and the way they were used, and describes the value placed on them by contemporary society. The result is that his book offers invaluable glimpses of aspects of Arab life as they were viewed by a sympathetic West European" (preface to the 1963 London edition). - Beautiful, complete set (the last copy sold at auction was incomplete). Text and plates uncommonly clean and in an excellent state of preservation throughout, in contrast to the known copies in libraries and in institutional possession. Ibrahim-Hilmy II, 138-140.

        Lake Pepin Fish-Chowder, in Letters to General Spinner

      H.D. McIntyre & Co., 201 William Street, New York 1869 - First edition. 141, [2, ads] pp. 1 vols. Small 8vo. Fishing in Minnesota, 1869. A series of letters on the glories of Minnesota fishing from this former Civil War officer to Gen. Francis E. Spinner (1802-1890), who served as Treasurer of the United States under Presidents Lincoln, Johnson, and Grant. First printed in Porter's Spirit of the Times to meet a growing post-war market of tourists and travelers eager to find the best fishing spots, Gibbs' little book spread the word about the joys of fishing Minnesota's lakes and rivers. It has never been re-printed, and is now rare on the market."And many learned about Minnesota fishing in the late 1860s when ex-Civil War Officer Oliver Gibbs wrote a series of letters to General Spinner, then United States treasurer, that were printed in The Spirit of the Times and later collected into a volume called Lake Pepin Fish-Chowder [?] Railing against the 'pot fishers' who netted fish by the wagonload, Gibbs promoted fishing with rod and reel" (Sheehy). Great content and fine story-telling, a neglected work from a formative time in American sport. Bruns G45 "Rare"; Phillips 135; Litchfield 46; Cf. Colleen J.

Questo raro lavoro (pubblicato in 57 parti) è il risultato di un lungo viaggio di esplorazione intrapreso dall'ornitologo tedesco M.Th. von Heuglin (1824 - 1876). Spirito avventuroso e autodidatta, Heuglin abbandonò un lavoro impiegatizio per iniziare un incredibile viaggio di esplorazione nell'Africa di Nord - Est e sulle coste del Mar Rosso, fino a Capo Gardafui. Il ricco materiale raccolto e descritto nella sua opera, servì da autorevole riferimento per i successivi lavori sull'argomento. Heuglin descrive 948 specie di uccelli, presenti nella vasta area considerata. Opera stranamente non posseduta dalla collezione Bradley Martin.

        PHINEAS FINN, THE IRISH MEMBER

      First Edition, in Two Volumes, Large 8vo. 9 x 6.5 inches. Vol 1. viii + 320 pp. Vol 2. viii + 328 pp. Sadleir in his bibliography of Trollope says 'First Editions of Phineas Finn in the original Virtue binding are scarce, and copies in fine state are very rare indeed'. The reason for this rarity is, of course, that shortly after the book was published, James Virtue went out of general publishing altogether and disposed of his copyrights to other firms. That of Phineas Finn was taken over by Strahan. There is no reason to think that Virtue printed in the first instance a short number for his first edition; what happened was that before he had time to sell many copies, he disposed of the copyright and was consequently debarred from putting the balance of his printed sheets on the market.Sadleir's book was published in 1928, and if a fine copy of P.F. was described as rare at that time, it can only have become more so in the 80+ years since.

        Manifest Kommunisticheskoj partii. [Geneva, Louis Czerniecki, 1869].

      1869. 8vo (117 x 186 mm). 23, (1) pp. With original printed title label on front flyleaf. Contemp. red half cloth with gilt title to cloth on front board. In green custom-made morocco-backed slipcase with chemise. First edition of the first Russian translation of the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels' groundbreaking work of communist propaganda, "undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all Socialist literature, the common platform acknowledged by millions of working men from Siberia to California" (preface to the 1888 edition). In the words of the British economist Harold Laski, the Manifesto is "admitted by every serious student of society to be one of the outstanding documents of all time". It also constitutes an early sum of Marx' and Engels' ideas, later to become known under the heading of 'scientific socialism': "[L]e manifeste renferme en puissance la quasi-totalité des idées élaborées par ses deux auteurs dans leurs ouvrages ultérieurs et qui, dans leur ensemble, représentent ce qu'ils appellent le socialisme scientifique; la seul exception importante est la théorie de la plus-value" (Andréas, p. 1). - This first Russian translation was prepared by the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin, "who despite being one of Marx and Engels' most pronounced opponents in the working class movement, saw the great revolutionary importance contained within the Manifesto" (note to the preface of the 1882 Russian translation). Due to state censorship, publication in Russia was out of the question. The printer, Louis (Ludwik) Czerniecki, was a Polish emigré who had come to Switzerland via London with the Russian revolutionary democrat Alexander Herzen. His Polish printing press served the Free Russian Press, in especial Herzen's paper "Kolokol" ("The Bell"), the Russian emigrants' leading organ of the time. Prior to this translation, the only bits of the Manifesto to reach Russian readers were a single sentence in the radical St. Petersburg journal "Sovremnik" (12/1858), reminiscent of the Manifesto's famous final sentence, and a paraphrase of the beginning of Section I that appeared as an introduction to a German-translated article in "Zagranicnij Vestnik" (6/1864). Neither of these publications cited their source. Unbeknownst to either author, it would be Russia where the Revolution heralded by the Manifesto would finally take place, under the leadership of their disciple Lenin who did not discover Marxism until after Marx's death (but who was later to prepare his own translation of the Communist Manifesto). - Engels, in his preface to the 1888 English edition of the Manifesto, stated in twofold error that "the first Russian translation, made by Bakunin, was published at Herzen's 'Kolokol' office in Geneva, about 1863; a second one, by the heroic Vera Zasulich, also in Geneva, 1882". In fact, Bakunin's version appeared in 1869, and the 1882 translation, with a preface by the authors, is by Georgi Plekhanov. Neither Marx nor Engels appears ever to have owned a copy of this Russian translation. Shrewdly, it was issued without wrappers or title page, with no mention of place or year, editor, printer, or translator. The printed title label present in our copy is also confirmed in the single other copy available for comparison (Geneva). Extremely rare: the only known copy in private hands; only three other copies are known in libraries worldwide (Bibliothèque de Genève; Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the Central Committee of the CPSU; Russian State Library/Gos. Biblioteka Imeni Lenina; photocopies in the Andréas and Feltrinelli collections). - A bit of wear to extremities. Binding very slightly loosened; gutter of flyleaf and first leaf inconspicuously reinforced. All in all very well preserved. Andréas 54. OCLC 717010404 (Bibliothèque de Genève, BGE Brsl 954/10). Rubel 70 (note, "1859" in error). Marx-Engels Erstdrucke p. 15, note 1. Cf. PMM 326.

      Erlangen Ferdinand Enke 1869 - 8°. Mit zahlreichen Holzschnitt-Illustrationen und 17 Tafeln in Stahlstich und Lithographie . HLdr. mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel. [Hrsg. Pitha/Billroth: Handbuch der allgemeinen und speciellen Chirurgie, Bd. I, 2 Abtl.]. " Theodor (Christian Albert) Billroth, der geniale Chirurg, als Neffe des Physikus zu Stettin, Wilhelm Frierich B. (der sich wesentliche Verdienste während der Cholerazeit erwarb), auf Rügen 26. April 1829 geboren, besuchte 1848 bis 1852 die Universitäten zu Greifswald, Göttingen (hier besonders von dem alten Baum für die Chirurgie angeregt) und Berlin und wurde auf letzterer 1852 Dr. med. mit der Dissertation »De natura et causa pulmonum affectionis quae nervo utroque vago dissecto exoritur« Nach einer wissenschaftlichen Reise, die sich nach Wien und Paris erstreckte, war er 1853 bis 1860 Assistent in B. v. Langenbeck's Klinik zu Berlin, habilitierte sich bei der dortigen Universität 1856 als Privatdozent, wurde 1860 als Professor ord. und Direktor der chirurgischen Klinik nach Zürich berufen und blieb in dieser Stellung bis 1867, seit welcher Zeit er in gleicher Eigenschaft an der Wiener Universität wirkte. Mehrfache, 1862 und 1864 an ihn ergangene Berufungen nach Rostock und Heidelberg, sowie diejenige als Nachfolger v. Langenbeck's nach Berlin (1882) lehnte er ab. 1870 nahm er freiwillig Anteil an dem deutsch-französischen Kriege und war namentlich in den Lazaretten von Weissenburg und Mannheim thätig. Auf B.'s energisches Betreiben wurden das »Rudolfinerhaus«, eine Lehranstalt für weltliche Krankenpflegerinnen in Wien, sowie das Haus der K. K. Gesellschaft der Ärzte ins Leben gerufen; dagegen gelang es ihm trotz vielfacher dahingehender Bemühungen nicht, den Bau einer neuen chirurgischen Klinik durchzusetzen. Bis zum Frühjahr 1887 völlig gesund und leistungsfähig, von ausserordentlicher körperlicher und geistiger Rührigkeit und bewundernswerter Vielseitigkeit erkrankte er jetzt zum ersten Male an einer schweren Lungen-Entzündung mit so bedeutender Herzschwäche, dass damals schon sein Ableben befürchtet wurde. Doch genas er und konnte noch 1889 seinen 60. Geburtstag, sowie 1892 sein 25jähriges Wiener Professorenjubiläum unter zahlreichen, von allen Seiten dargebrachten Ovationen begehen. Indessen nahm die seit der Erkrankung zurückgebliebene Herzschwäche stetig zu, sodass B. vielfach seine Berufsthätigkeit unterbrechen musste. Am 6. Februar 1894 trat der Tod dieses weltberühmten Chirurgen in Abbazia ein, der von der ganzen Welt als ein schwerer Verlust tief betrauert wurde. Am 9. Februar wurde B. in Wien »unter fürstlichen Ehren« bestattet. Am 16. Februar veranstaltete die K. K. Gesellschaft der Ärzte in Wien eine Trauerfeier zu seinen Ehren, wobei Albert die Gedenkrede hielt; am 7. November 1897 wurde im Arkadenhofe der Wiener Universität sein Denkmal enthüllt. B. wird mit Recht als ein Stern erster Grösse, als ein Chirurg von universeller Bedeutung gefeiert. Was ihm seine wissenschaftliche resp. geschichtliche Bedeutung giebt, ist in erster Linie die Betonung von der Notwendigkeit der streng anatomisch-mikroskopischen Richtung und die Pflege der pathologisch-anatomischen Forschung, die er auch als die einzig rationelle Basis für den Fortschritt und das Gedeihen der praktischen Chirurgie ansah. Unter seinen Schriften finden wir namentlich aus seiner Erstlingszeit eine grosse Reihe darauf bezüglicher Veröffentlichungen, unter denen als die bedeutendsten die Untersuchungen über Wundkrankheiten gelten müssen, die ihren dauernden Wert wegen der darin betonten und bethätigten Prinzipien behalten werden, trotzdem sie in ihren Ergebnissen z.T. als überholt gelten müssen. Seinen Hauptruhm verdankt B. dem Ausbau der Eingeweidechirurgie, die er dank den Fortschritten der Anti- und Asepsis um die erste vollständige Kehlkopfexstirpation (1874) und die erstmalige glückliche Pylorusresektion (1881) (bei einer 43 jährigen an Pyloruscarcinom leidenden Kranken) bereichert hat. Über die erstgenannte Operation hat sein dam [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [INGRES]. La Semaine. Dessins faits à Rome par J. Ingres en 1813. Donnés à E. Gatteaux. Gravés par W. Haussoulier en 1869.

      Paris, Imprimerie A. Salmon, 1869. album in-4, 8 planches. Relié maroquin janséniste vert bouteille, dos à nerfs, dentelle intérieure dorée, tranches or, doubles gardes de papier cuve. (Gruel). Titre imprimé en rouge, non illustré, et 7 planches tirées sur Chine appliqué (10 x 14 cm à la cuvette, montées sur papier fort). Chaque sujet est l'allégorie d'un jour de la semaine. Ces sept dessins avaient été données par Ingres à son ami Édouard Gatteaux (Paris 1788 - 1881), sculpteur et graveur de médailles. Ce dernier, de nombreuses années plus tard, les confia au peintre et graveur Haussoulier. William Haussoulier (Paris 1818 - 1891), élève de Delaroche, avait exposé au Salon de 1845 "Fontaine de jouvence", une toile qui a enthousiasmé Baudelaire. Cette suite n'a été tirée qu'a un petit nombre d'exemplaires, réservés aux amis de Mr Gatteaux. (Fonds Français XIX°s. tome X, p. 140, n°7). - Mention à la mine de plomb sur le titre : "offert à Mr Alfred Léo par l'auteur. H. Haussoullier". Est jointe à l'exemplaire une belle lettre autographe signée du même Haussoullier, 2pp. in-8 sur papier de deuil, datée d'Auteuil, 27 février 1870, destinataire inconnu (probablement A. Léo nommé plus haut). Il offre l'exemplaire à son destinataire de la part de Mr Gatteaux. "Maintenant, quant à la question financière, elle n'existe pas. Mr Gatteaux a fait graver ce petit recueil pour le donner à ses amis et aux admirateurs du talent de son ami Mr Ingres...". - Intérieur du volume très frais, menus frottements aux charnières et aux nerfs.

        Le 26 Octobre

      Paris: Depot Central Chez Madre, 1869. First edition. 12mo, 32 [1] pp, contemporary or early rebind in brown percaline with red leather spine label lettered in gilt; original orange wraps, bearing a printed title pastedown to front panel, preserved and bound in. Edition unstated, but according to Noel, one of 900 copies printed. A second edition was produced later the same year, incorporating a response to the text by Keratry. Inscribed by Grousset at the title page to "Jules Richard"; the title page bears a "timbre imperial" stamp. Near fine. A manifesto by Grousset, who was at the time the editor of Le Marseillase, following the elections that May which would lead to the dissolution of the house. Grousset would soon after the publication of this work become a member of Paris Commune, and after its fall was deported to New Caledonia, where he would eventually escape. During his time away from France Grousset spent some time on the west coast of the US, and the southern Oregon coast would become the setting of his dystopian tale Le Cinq Cents Millions de Begum, which would eventually be published under Jules Verne's name. Grousset was unable to publish under his own name at the time due to his involvement with Paris Commune, and the publisher Hetzel had Jules Verne rewrite it. The book was the first to be published under Verne's name in his lifetime that struck a pessimistic note about the future of human technology, and the book anticipated the development of long range missiles. Verne and Grousset would go on to write a couple of books together, and Grousset would also write several other science fiction tales under pseudonym. The inscription may be M. Jules Richard, the military historian - if so, a minor but fascinating Paris Commune association, as that Richard published the first biography of Cluseret, also a member of the Commune.

      [Paris], Hôpital St-Louis, 1869. [1] feuillet de titre, 32 feuillets forts numérotés, dont 16 avec dessins sous serpentes demi-chagrin vert foncé, ex-dono doré sur le plat supérieur: "A MR.LE DR HARDY SON ÉLÈVE DÉVOUÉ ARTHUR DE MONTMEJA" 1869, 1869, in-8, [1] feuillet de titre, 32 feuillets forts numérotés, dont 16 avec dessins sous serpentes, demi-chagrin vert foncé, ex-dono doré sur le plat supérieur: "A MR.LE DR HARDY SON ÉLÈVE DÉVOUÉ ARTHUR DE MONTMEJA", Manuscrit de parasitologie que Montméja destinait à son maître, l'éminent dermatologue de l'hôpital Saint-Louis Alfred Hardy (1811-1893); sur les 32 feuillets, la moitié comprend un dessin à la mine de plomb, figurant divers parasites du corps humain représentés sous grossissement et accompagnés d'une légende manuscrite à la plume (puce de l'homme, rouget, pou de la tête, pou du corps, pou du pubis, demodex folliculorum, végétations des follicules, favus, etc.) Les autres feuillets forts sont restés vierges; sur certains, Montméja a commencé à tracer le cadre et le cercle dans lesquels un spécimen de parasite aurait dû être figuré. Environ une soixantaine de feuillets blancs est placée entre les feuillets forts; peut-être devaient ils recevoir un texte manuscrit. Au moment de la confection de ce manuscrit, Arthur de Montméja venait juste de collaborer à la célèbre Clinique photographique de l'hôpital Saint-Louis (1868) avec Alfred Hardy; désigné chef du service photographique spécialement créé, il dirigea l'atelier où furent réalisés les premiers clichés et il fit paraître cette publication illustrant les pathologies de la peau. C'est à son maître qu'il comptait adresser ce manuscrit, certainement demeuré inachevé en raison des nombreuses activités de publications auxquelles il était occupé à l'époque. Montméja fut chef de clinique ophtalmologique; après avoir travaillé pour la Clinique d'Alfred Hardy, il publie, avec Jules Rengade et Désiré-Magloire Bourneville, la Revue photographique des hôpitaux de Paris (1869-1872), célèbre pour ses clichés représentant les maux et les pathologies du corps humains les plus rares et les plus spectaculaire. Propriétaire du château de Rouffilac (Carlux, Dordogne), il décède en 1910. Manque au dos. Quelques rousseurs pâles, une petite tâche en marge de 2 feuillets

        [ORIGINAL PEN AND INK DRAWING OF FORT D. A. RUSSELL, WYOMING TERRITORY, 1869]

      Fort Russell, Wyoming Territory, 1869. Single sheet of heavy gauge paper, 8 x 11 inches. Three tiny punch holes near the top edge, a few pinholes at top left corner. Very good. A beautifully-executed ink and wash drawing of Fort D. A. Russell, Wyoming Territory, near present-day Cheyenne. It is titled, "Ft Russell. from the South." Fort Russell was established in 1867 to protect workers building the Union Pacific Railroad, and was named in honor of David Allen Russell, a Civil War general killed at the Battle of Opequon. The post remained a key fort throughout the various conflicts with the Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes of the region over the decade after its establishment. Little is known of the artist, who signs the drawing, "A. F. Alden, Del. Aug. 1869." She was evidently the sister of the post surgeon, Major Charles Henry Alden, who was stationed at Fort Russell for three years, 1868- 1871. Very likely she was visiting her brother, possibly at the time of the opening of the transcontinental railroad in the summer of 1869. Her eye for detail was extraordinary. The drawing shows the fort from the south, a dense cluster of buildings situated on a ridge, proudly flying an American flag at center. A visually evocative historical work from the American West. HEITMAN, HISTORICAL REGISTER, p. 155.

        Eurasian Eagle Owl (Le Grand Duc). Watercolor with black chalk.

      France 1869 - The work of Edouard Travies-the French "Audubon"-represents a pinnacle in French ornithological illustration, and his Eurasian Eagle-Owl is a major work of nineteenth-century ornithological art. His images of birds are considered to be among the finest ever produced, and original works such as this one are exceedingly rare. Travies's work is so highly valued for the remarkable aesthetic sensibility, scientific accuracy, and attention to holistic detail (both compositionally and ecologically) he was able to attain while granting his subjects a striking sense of character and individual charm, a unique combination rarely achieved in the portrayal of natural history as a pursuit bent on detail and scientific accuracy. This superb watercolor of the Eurasian eagle-owl-whose population numbers are now roughly half that of its American counterpart, the great horned owl-is a testament to Travies's incredible skill and artistry as he masterfully captures the magnificence of this fierce predator reigning supreme over the vastness of its domain. Travies had visited this subject a decade earlier in his iconic Les Oiseaux Les Plus Remarquables Par Leurs Formes et Leurs Couleurs, published in Paris and London ca. 1857. This extremely rare and highly prized ornithological text promised to represent the most remarkable birds in "varied scenes of their mores and habits" and contained 79 lithographed plates originally issued in serial form without title or text. Intent on creating complete representations, the artist had rendered the backgrounds fully, incorporating foliage, flowers, butterflies, and architectural features, as well as incidental details such as dogs or figures hunting. However, the eagle-owl's great size (it is one of the largest living species of owl) and preference for remote variegated habitats among rocky, mountainous regions, coniferous forests, or steppes, and ranging across essentially all climates and environments on the Eurasian continent, seems to have posed a particular problem for Travies, who, in his earlier attempt, placed the owl in somewhat awkward isolation relative to its surroundings. The particular compositional problem of rightfully rendering the large predator seems to have remained with the artist for 12 years after Les Oiseaux's publication, until the masterful solution articulated in the present work. In this brilliantly composed watercolor, the artist creates a harmonious balance between his subject's striking features and the majestic landscape it calls home. The composition poignantly turns on the eagle-owl's intimidating orange eyes which Travies captures with remarkable depth and beauty through careful modulations of color and tone. The distinctive ear tufts, extending upward like a crown, bring a sense of nobility to the bird and point to its aristocratic French name, "Le Grand Duc." The eagle-owl is, nevertheless, a fierce predator, and Travies knowingly articulates its strong, deadly talons clenched tight around a cliff-laden perch typical of the song posts used to mark its territory. In striking contrast, the bird's feathers are extremely soft to keep it warm in a variety of climates; along with short, broad wings, this velvety plumage allows the bird to silently and agilely descend upon its prey. The artist evokes this texture by allowing the white ground to come through and deftly handling his materials, mixing subtly variegated watercolors in browns and tawny buff with sparse, swift lines of black chalk to create dimensionality in the owl's plumage and add definition to its bold patterning. The animal's regal grandeur is matched only by the expansive and rocky mountainous landscape that occupies the bottom third of the picture space, while the soft gradations of blues and pinks cast by a sun hovering on the horizon bring balance and poignancy to the vibrant orange of its eyes. A magnificent study in contrasts, Travies's representation of the Eurasian eagle-owl is a poetic, unparalleled depic [Attributes: Signed Copy]
