        View of the Acropolis from the Musaeum Hill from The Acropolis of Athens (Plate 1)

      London: S.F. Ellis, 1870 Oval, 7½ x 9 ½ in. Carbon print on original mount. Some minor browning. Fine condition. This photograph is the first view from W. J. Stillman's, The Acropolis of Athens, a series of 25 photographs taken in 1869 and published together the following year. The 25 photographs open with four longer views of the Acropolis, eventually spiraling in toward the Parthenon. Scholar Andrew Szegedy-Maszak notes that this well-known first photograph in the series "exemplifies [Stillman's] pictorial practice." The Athenian Acropolis, one of the most famous landmarks of Ancient Greece, has been an important cultural and religious location since the 3rd millennium BCE. The most prominent building on the Acropolis, the Parthenon, was constructed between 447 and 438 BCE as a temple to Athena, although it eventually went on to serve as both a Christian church and a Muslim mosque. In this photograph, one can see a bell tower that was added by the Christian Franks in the 13th century. It was torn down only five years after Stillman's work was published. An eccentric personality who excelled in many fields, including painting, art criticism, photography and journalism, Stillman held ties with preeminent art theorist, John Ruskin, and co-founded the first serious American art journal, The Crayon. When Stillman took up his most important photographic endeavor, The Acropolis of Athens, the aesthetic and philosophical positions he had formed in his earlier career as an artist greatly influenced the composition of his photographs. As a reviewer reported in The Atlantic about one of Stillman's earlier works, "the points of view are chosen with the fine feeling of an artist.".

        126 Extra-Beilagen, deutsch-französischer Krieg 1870 - 1871, aus Würzburger Stadt- und Landbote

      - 126 Extra-Beilagen zum deutsch-französischen Krieg 1870/1871. Kartondeckel (8°), eingelegt 126 Ein-Blatt-Drucke verschiedener Formate (min. ca. 11x17). Die Stücke waren ehedem alle oben zusammengenäht, ca. ½ sind lose aber chronologisch stimmig. Teils mit Läsuren, Flecken, sonst gut. Ca. 2/3 der Drucke datieren auf August und September 1870. Die Drucke („Extra-Beilage" genannt) lagen meist dem „Würzburger Stadt- und Landboten" bei (dazu kommen solche der „Bayerischen Volks-Zeitung", der „Neuen Würzburger Zeitung und Anzeiger" und ca. 1x des „Würzburger Journal"). Die Stücke sind teils nicht separat datiert, es ergibt sich jedoch eine klare Chronologie von 7. August 1870 (Blatt 1 ganz unten) bis Ende März 1871 (Blatt 123 ganz oben). Dazu lose beiliegend (und ehedem nicht angenäht) Extra Beilage mit Inhalten von Telegrammen vom 17. und 18.7.1870, „Extra-Beilage Nr. 233" mit „Fest-Programm zur Feier des Friedensschlusses" am Sonntag den 5.3.1871 und Doppel des Blattes „Friede" (zum 1.3.1871). Die Inhalte der Beilagen gehen oft auch Berichte damaliger Nachrichtenagenturen (oft „Wagner’s tel. Corr.-Bureau") und offizielle Nachrichtenverlautbarungen (durch Telegramme u.ä.) zurück. So berichtet Blatt 1 von Folgen der Schlacht bei Wörth, Blatt 123 von der erwarteten Rückkehr des 27. bayerischen Landwehrbataillons (welches „noch heute" in Würzburg eintreffen soll).

        JECKYLL, Thomas (1827?81). Architect; Designer of Whistler's Peacock Room

      - Autograph Letter Signed ?T. Jeckyll? to ?Ionides? [probably one of Alexander ?Alec?' Ionides? four siblings]. 4 pages 8vo, 5 St Georges Terrace, Queen's Gate, Saturday morning n.d. [probably 1870, the date of his commission for 1 Holland Park]. Jeckyll is perhaps best known for being the original designer for what has come to be known as Whistler?s famous Peacock Room. It was a commission for the industrialist Frederick Richards Leyland?s house in Prince?s Gate, London and was Jeckyll?s last interiors project. Whilst executing the scheme for the dining room in 1876, Jeckyll consulted Whistler about his plans for the painted shutters and doors. Whistler, who was working simultaneously on other elements of the house, commandeered the project and continued his elaborate decorative scheme into the dining room. Jeckyll became unwell around this time and was unable to finish the project. He went mad and eventually died in an asylum in 1881, which is perhaps a reason that some consider him to be ?among the least understood and most tragic Aesthetic Movement figures in England? (Soros, Arbuthnott, Thomas Jeckyll, 2003). In this letter Jeckyll writes about the decorative tiles intended for the Billiard Room of 1 Holland Park, London, also discussing cost and expense. In 1870 the collector Alexander Constantine Ionides commissioned Jeckyll to design several rooms for this residence, notably the Billiard Room which was in the Anglo-Japanese style and was inset with Japanese paintings. ?Alecco wrote me [. . .] to look at some tiles at Wilsons and to buy them to go round the brass grate in the Billiard room if I thought well of them [. . .] they asked me £44.00 for them; and, at last, £35 when I told young Wilson who it was wants them - they [. . .] and will want repair [. . .] I do not know if Alecco has any idea of [. . .] price [. . .] Can you tell me whether your brother would be surprised at my spending £35 [. . .] till the tiles are settled I cannot finish my design for woodwork of chimney piece and the men are waiting. Tell me if in my place you wd buy the £35 worth because I have been half spoiling the work hitherto for sake of saving little sums [. . .] I really do not know Alecco's ideas abt expense.? The Victoria and Albert museum holds a perspective design for 1, Holland Park?s Billiard Room in its collections. The house was destroyed in the Second World War. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        United States Capitol

      Fine Large-format Photograph of the Capitol. This dramatic photograph of the United States Capitol shows the building ca. 1870, after the completion of the new dome and the extensions. The view shows the east side of the building, as seen from the northeast. There are signs of construction evident in the image, and a number of people and two horse-drawn carriages are visible. The photograph was taken within a few years of 1867, when the cheek blocks beside the Senate steps were installed. The photograph shows the rails for a street car system, for which termini were constructed on the Capitol grounds. Thomas Jefferson insisted the legislative building be called the "Capitol" rather than "Congress House." The word "Capitol" comes from Latin and is associated with the Roman temple to Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill. The name, which followed the example of Virginia's House of Burgesses' "Capitoll" authorized in 1699, signified the national aspirations for a republic steeped in the ancient Roman virtues of citizenship and self-government. During the Civil War some objected to continued construction of the building, but Lincoln insisted it continue, saying, "If people see the Capitol going on, it is a sign we intend the Union to go on." On March 4, 1865, Lincoln delivered his Second Inaugural Address from the East Portico, visible here, declaring, "With malice toward none, with charity for all ..." The U.S. Capitol is, apart from the Statue of Liberty, the greatest symbol of America and perhaps the nation's most famous and most important single building. Albumen print, mounted. 15 1/2 x 9 1/2 in. Mount darkened, some darkening and minimal surface wear to image, but generally in very good condition.

        Abraham Lincoln] Yours truly. A. Lincoln

      1870 - Steel-faced copper plate with a photogravure of Lincoln: 11 1/2 x 9 inches; image: 8 x 6 inches. Head and torso portrait of Lincoln in 3/4 profile with facsimile signature This photogravure of Abraham Lincoln is a reversed image of a photograph taken in 1858 by Alexander Hesler, to which a beard and facsimile signatuve have been added. Hesler took several excellent photo portraits of Lincoln in the days before he became President. The prints made from this plate clearly, were produced to meet the demand for portraits after the assassination, (though we have been unable to locate an example of the print). It is in any event, this is a fine memorial portrait of the President, emphasizing his calmness and seriousness.

He soon became an expert in counterfeiting cases. The U.S. Secret Service was created in 1865 to combat counterfeiting, which accounted for one-third of the currency then in circulation. It also investigated crimes from bank robbery and murder to illegal gambling. Kennoch (whose name was often given as "Kennock" in the books and newspapers of the day), served until his death at 46 in 1887. His obituary noted that he "was probably better acquainted with counterfeiters, their ways and haunts than any other detective in the country." Hiram C. Whitley, Chief of the Secret Service under U.S. Grant, called Kennoch one of his "ablest" agents in his autobiography. Kennoch maintained extensive photographic files containing annotated cartes de visite of fugitives, criminals and other wanted men and women. Many of the photographs are annotated with names and aliases of the perpetrators and wanted criminals, crimes committed, and conviction and arrest dates. Most are annotated with the locations and names of their photographers. This is an extraordinary archive documenting the life of a federal law officer and the criminals he tracked for more than fifteen years in post-Civil War America. In addition to the enormous photographic holdings, the collection includes many manuscripts, relics, and ephemera from Kennoch's dramatic career. This tremendous collection, reflecting American financial, social, criminal, business, and photographic history, offers limitless research and exhibition possibilities. Please inquire for details.

      Paris, Charles Tanera, 1870.. Small folio 37x24 cm. Pp. xxi, 75 (verso blank), (5) (verso blank). Plus 10 double-page leaves of plates tipped-in at end with a total of 30 engraved illustrations. Printed on fine laid paper with manufacture's armorial watermark.

In fine condition. Excellent, very wide-margined copy. ~ French edition. Extremely rare. Dürer's famous treatise on the fortification of towns, villages and castles, was published in 1527 as "Etliche Unterricht, zur Befestigung der Städte, Schlösser und Flecken". Translated from the German by Alexandre Ratheau who contributed an extended introduction which examines Dürer's work in historical perspective. Ratheau is also responsible for the fine illustrations in the book, engraved and printed in Paris. "The book goes beyond being an instruction manual on the design of a fortified city. Dürer's plan was functional, pragmatic, and socially responsible, and the purpose of its design was to improve the status and lifestyle of German artisans." - Tessa Morrison: "Albrecht Dürer and the Ideal City" (Parergon 2014).
