        Processions.

      China ca 1870 - A set of 12 watercolour and gouache studies on pith paper, framed by blue silk ribbon, all mounted, some slight browning and small splits; overall an attractive and vibrant set. Chinese export watercolours of the highest quality. 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 water-colours 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.

        Lutherdenkmal Album. Das Lutherdenkmal zu Worms. Album.

      Worms, Holzamer, ohne Jahresangabe (um 1868-1870). - Imperial Folio. (ca. 72x55 cm), 21 Photographien auf 16 Kartons, photographiert von Hof-Photograph Carl Holzamer. Kartonformate ca. 52 x 69 cm. Photod / Images: from 35 x 46 cm to 29,5 x 40 cm to 12 x 22 cm (in different sizes / in verschiedenen Formaten). Cloth folder. Leinwandmappe mit Lederrücken mit Deckelprägung. Worms around 1868 - 1870. Der Rücken stärker eingerissen, der Einbandbezug etwas fleckig, die Ecken und Kanten mit leichten Stoßspuren, innen sauber und frisch. Alle Kartons mit Blindstempel des Photographen. Rechte untere Ecke mit Fleck. Sehr seltene Mappe mit Original-Photographien vom Lutherdenkmal in Worms, photographiert vom Hof-Photographen Carl Holzamer vor 1870. 1870 erschien eine Mappe mit Holzstichen nach diesen Photographien. Diese Mappe weltweit nicht in Bibliotheken nachweisbar und wohl nur in sehr geringer Auflage erschienen. Das Lutherdenkmal in Worms wurde zu Ehren des Reformators Martin Luther von Ernst Rietschel (Gesamtentwurf sowie die Statuen Luthers und Wyclifs) geschaffen und am 25. Juni 1868 enthüllt. Neben dem internationalen Reformationsdenkmal in Genf gilt es als weltweit größtes Reformationsdenkmal. Historisches Hauptmotiv zur Errichtung des Denkmals war neben dem Thesenanschlag 1517 Luthers Rolle auf dem Reichstag zu Worms von 1521, als er vor Kaiser Karl V. seine Thesen verteidigte. Neben Rietschel, von dem der Gesamtentwurf stammte, waren unter anderem seine Schüler Adolf von Donndorf (Statuen von Waldus, Savonarola, Reuchlin, Friedrich dem Weisen und Magdeburg), Johannes Schilling (Statue der personifizierten Stadt Speyer) und Gustav Adolph Kietz (Statuen von Hus, Melanchthon, Philipp dem Großmütigen und Augsburg) und der Architekt Hermann Nicolai, ein Schüler Gottfried Semper’s, an der Gestaltung des Denkmals beteiligt. Es wurde in der Kunstgießerei Lauchhammer gegossen. Rietschels Lutherstatue im Zentrum des Denkmals war für die Lutherdarstellung im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert prägend und wurde für zahlreiche Lutherdenkmäler in Mitteleuropa und Nordamerika nachgegossen.(wikipedia.de) Die Photographien zeigen: Gesamtansicht des Denkmals, Medaillons, Dr. Martin Luther, Bibelübersetzung und Lutherpredig, Johann Wiklef (Wiclef), Philipp der Großmütige, Johann Reuchlin, Friedrich der Weise, Die protestierende Speyer, Augsburg mit der Friedenspalme, Savonarola, Die trauernde Magdeburg, Petrus Waldus, Johann Huss und Philipp Melanchthon.

        Contributions to the Theory of Natural Selection. A series of essays.

Published in 1858, Wallace?s essay ?On the Tendency of Varieties to Depart Indefinitely from the Original Type?, published beside excerpts from an essay by Darwin, established him, with Darwin, as the co-founder of the theory of natural selection. Although Wallace describes himself in the preface as the ?independent originator? of the evolutionary theory, he was not in competition with Darwin. ?I have felt all my life that Mr Darwin had been at work long before me, and that it was not left for me to write ?The Origin of the Species? I have long since measured my own strength, and I know well that it would be unequal to that task?. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Reconnoitring in Abyssinia. A Narrative of the Proceedings of the Reconnoitring Party, prior to the Arrival of the Main Body of the Expeditionary Field Force.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1870 - Octavo. Original red diagonal-ribbed cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt, decorative black frame to front board enclosing decorative gilt octofoil, similar frame in blind to rear, all edges gilt, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Housed in a custom blue slipcase. Contemporary prize inscription from Lonsbury College, commercial college in Upper Clapton, to front free endpaper verso. Spine faded, minor rubbing to headcaps and corners, sides very slightly darkened, with a few trivial marks, mild spotting to margins of frontispiece and a few other plates, upper outer corner of pp. 123-6 creased, the text unaffected. An excellent copy. Tinted lithographic frontispiece after Rolfe, finished by hand as issued, 9 similar plates, large linen-backed folding lithographic map to rear, 2 wood-engravings to the text. First and only edition, uncommon: nine copies traced in UK libraries, just five other complete copies traced in commerce in the last 50 years, this a remarkably clean and fresh copy from the celebrated travel library of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the front free endpaper. Wilkins "commanded the Royal Engineers throughout the Abyssinian expedition of 1868, where the difficult terrain required engineering skills of the highest order. He was mentioned in dispatches by Lord Napier of Magdala for his 'invaluable and important services', and was appointed aide-de-camp to the queen, with the rank of colonel in the army" (ODNB). His engaging account is attractively illustrated with lithographed views of Aden and the Eritrean coast on the outward journey, in addition to several Abyssinian scenes. Bruce 4748; Fumagalli 308.

        The Acropolis of Athens, Illustrated Picturesquely and Architecturally in Photography

      London: F.S. Ellis, 1870. Folio. Title page illustrated with a mounted photograph. 25 mounted carbon print photographs (images approx. 7 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches, or the reverse). Publisher's green cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt, expertly rebacked to style with green moroccoThe best 19th century photographs of the Acropolis: one of 100 copies printed.Stillman's The Acropolis of Athens "may be considered a precursor of the twentieth-century modernist photobook in that self-expression is deemed as important as making a record. Stillman's title determines the book's tone -- the Acropolis is 'illustrated picturesquely and architecturally in photography', with the artistic side of the enterprise being placed before the documentary ... [Stillman's] work is nominally in a straightforward nineteenth century topographical mode, fulfilling the brief of documenting the Parthenon and Erecheum, but it also functions as a conscious vehicle for the photographer's artistic ambitions. Stillman takes us on a tour of the Acropolis in 25 well-executed and richly toned photographs that transport us from far to near, beginning with distant views that place the hill and its monuments in context, and ending with close-ups of statue fragments" (Parr and Badger).Stillman, born in Schenectady, New York, trained as an artist under Frederic Church; travelling to England and Europe in the 1850s, he became an important member of the Pre-Raphaelite circle, befriending Rossetti, Millais and others. It was around this time that he also took up photography. Following the Civil War, Stillman was named U.S. Consul to Crete, but fled to Athens during the Cretan Revolt. In the winter and spring of 1869 he began photographing the Acropolis. Encouraged by others, he privately published his work, with the carbon print photographs printed by the Autotype Company of London. Contemporary advertisements reveal that only 100 copies were published at the price of $25 (with images subsequently offered for sale individually at $1).The work is quite rare on the market, with only a single example in the auction records.Truthful Lens 155; NYPL 223; Parr and Badger, The Photobook, I:p. 68; Frederick N.

        SPIRIT LIFE OF THEODORE PARKER, AS NARRATED BY HIMSELF, THROUGH THE MEDIUMSHIP OF MISS ELIZABETH RAMSDELL

      Printed for the Author, Boston 1870 - Bound in brown textured cloth with blind rule lines stamped on boards and title in gilt on front board (7 7/8" X 5") 84pp. A scarce first edition in near fine condition that shows very little corner or edge rub, just a bit dusty/dingy at text block edges. Front fly has top right 1 1/4" triangle torn away and previous owners A. A. Fales ? signature on it. The spiritualist movement was born out of dissatisfaction of churches not doing enough to support the rights of the individual, especially when it came to womens rights and slavery. Many early spiritualists who purported to talk to the dead were also women (ie. The Fox Sisters and Cora Scott), this gave them a platform to espouse ideas in a very public forum that would be even more controversial if attributed to themselves. In this volume Miss Parker who was a dress maker from Minn. was channeling the abolitionist, tem free thinking preacher Theodore Parker. Parker who eventually refuted the bible as strict doctrine, beleived that ones relationship with god is personal and individual. He was adamently anti-slavery, publishing an argument "John Browns Expedition Reviewed" , which justified the right of a slave to kill his "owner". He helped found "The Boston Vigilance Committee" which actively hid slaves and refused to send them back to southern owners. A scarce volume as W/C shows only 4 copies of this printing.

      1870. On offer here is a very rare 1870 Wisden still in it's original wrappers and in very good overall condition. As can be seen from the photographs, the front and rear wrappers are a little marked - mainly foxing. A facsimile spine has been added to the book in recent times. That repair was not carried out by me, but I suspect that at one time the book was rebound in hard boards and at some stage the book has been taken out of the boards and a facsimile spine attached. Internally, the title page and the first few pages have some foxing as do the last couple of pages but otherwise the contents are in excellent, clean, unmarked condition - most unusual for a book of this vintage. Overall, a really nice example.

This is the illustrated 322,433 pg . version that was released in 1870 following the publication in Spain the year previous and this leather spined with brown cloth hard cover is identical to that of the Spanish binding however provinance provided with this book shows a receipt for binding work and this complete and slightly spotted or soiled novel is the only French version I have seen up for sale . Originally , there were three editions: one economical, without illustrations; another one in small format, with a few illustrations; and a third one in a bigger in-octavo format and richly illustrated. It is the last edition that is now very popular among book collectors. Especially popular are first editions of his best known novels as this one is not only his most famous but this particular version contains almost 25% more text from Jules Verne masterpiece! For more than a hundred years the mistranslated English versions were the only versions until 1998's Butcher edition annotated from the French original.

Bierce has marked the beginning and end of p. 263, the Psalter of Jesus, "Jesus help me overcome all temptations to sin, and the malice my ghostly enemy..." <br> Ambrose Bierce was an important American writer and journalist. One of his most notable works is the satirical Devil's Dictionary. Bierce served in Union Army's 9th Indiana infantry during the Civil War, seeing action at Philippi, Rich Mountain, Shiloh, and Kennesaw Mountain. In 1871 Bierce married Molly Day (shown in the included photo). They separated after Bierce discovered love letters written to her by an admirer, resulting in their divorce in 1904, and earning Bierce the epithet, "Bitter Bierce." Interestingly, although brought up in a fervent Revivalist church and to a devout family, Bierce was a consistent agnostic (atheist?) throughout his life.

        Albumen photograph of wheat harvest with steam-powered thresher and thirteen laborers

      W. Caswell, Photographer, Grand Forks, Dakota 1870 - Photographer's stamp on verso: "W. Caswell, / Photographer, / Grand Forks, Dak.". 1 vols. Boudoir-style, image: 4-1/2 x 7-5/8 in. mounted on card. Little is known of William Caswell, save in 1877 he formed a partnership with Simon Duffin in Winnipeg, having previously operated out of Duluth, Minnesota and Grand Forks. This photograph, with Caswell's Grand Forks stamp dates from the 1870's, the era of Dakota Territory "bonanza" farms, heavily reliant on steam power: "On the bonanza farms opened up in the Red River Valley of the North in the seventies, portable steam engines for threshing were used from the beginning. To have relied upon horse power for threshing would have crippled the large-scale farming operations" (Wik, "Steam Power on the American Farm, 1830-1880") An early image from the first days of steam-powered grain harvesting in the Dakota Territory - the steam engine (on the left) is powering the thresher (in rear, behind stacked grain). Photographer's stamp on verso: "W. Caswell, / Photographer, / Grand Forks, Dak.". 1 vols. Boudoir-style, image: 4-1/2 x 7-5/8 in. mounted on card

        [FAR EAST] Puteshestviye v Ussuriyskom Kraye, 1867-1869 gg. S kartoy Ussuriyskogo Kraya [i.e. Travels in the Ussuri Region, 1867-1869, with a Map of the Ussuri Region, by N. Przhevalsky, Member of the Imperial Russian Geographical Society]

      St. Petersburg: Izdaniye avtora, 1870. [4], ii, iii, 297, [2], 58, [1] pp. Octavo. With a folding chromolithographed map at rear. Modern (period style) half calf with marbled papered boards; spine with raised bands and gilt lettered title. Margins slightly cut, otherwise a very good copy. First edition of the first book by major explorer of Central Asia Nikolay Przhevalsky (1839-1888), an account of his first travel to the little known Ussuri krai in the Russian Far East annexed to the Russian Empire in 1858 with the signing of the Treaty of Aigun. In 1867-1869 Przhevalsky went up the Ussuri River from Khabarovka, followed its tributary Songacha River up to Lake Khanka, surveyed its western and southern shores, and went down the Suifen River to fort Novgorodsky, the southernmost settlement in the Ussuri region (Posyet Bay of the Japanese Sea). He then went on a strenuous journey north to St. Olga Bay not by steamer as it was common, but along the shore of the Sea of Japan, following less penetrable forest paths, and visiting Vladivostok (then a village with no more than 500 people) and Nakhodka among others. From St. Olga Bay Przhevalsky went by land to the mouth of the Tadusha (Zerkalnaya) River, crossed the Sikhote-Alin mountain range, and returned to the Ussuri River following her tributaries Fudjin (Pavlovka) and Ulukhe. In 1868 he conducted more surveys of Lake Khanka and assisted in suppression of Chinese gangs robbing Russian villages on the Suchan River. Przhevalsky compiled the first comprehensive description of the Ussuri region, clarified the shape and geographical position of Lake Khanka, performed topographical survey of the area between Nakhodka and Tadusha River, and mapped the eastern slopes of the Sikhote-Alin mountain range. He discovered a new mammal species (black hare) and castor aralia tree (Kalopanax septemlobus). The book contains a detailed descriptions of the Ussuri region's geography, climate, fauna and flora, life and occupations of native inhabitants and Russian settlers, agriculture, industries and trade. The map shows the Ussuri region up to the Chinese and Korean borders, outlining Przhevalsky's route and marking main cities, Russian, Cossack and Chinese villages, military posts, and telegraph stations.

        Moveable] Fröhliche Stunden

      - Quarto. Circa 1870's. A monumental German-printed movable in original cloth backed blue gilt paper covered boards with large full-size inserted color cover illustration. Fifteen superb color printed scenes with ornate and rather complicated moveable pieces controlled by one pull tab, with several hinge points on each movable entity (up to 3-5 per example) including sledder that travels down hill as the pull tab is dragged down, rocking baby, girls washing doll in well, egg hatching, sawing wood, and much more. Most in workable condition and all parts appear to be present. An unrecorded movable. We can find no record of this book. The title page reads: "Frohliche Stunden. Ein unterhatendes Bilderbuch mit ziehbaren Bildern fur die Liebe Jugend." Overall quite nicely preserved, given the nature of movables, printed on fragile paper. The binding is fully intact and internally quite clean and bright. Some minor restoration needed to bring all movables in working order. Most scarce thus.

        JAPANESE HAND-COLORED EARLY ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM.

      - [Japan 1870's-1880's, Kashima/Ogawa]. Wood covers, very good 25 hand-colored albumen, each image: ca. 26 x 21, laid down on stiff accordion album leaves, edges gilt, some hinges weak or mended, all images strong, clear, not faded. RARE ! *** *** *** . . . ORIGINAL HAND-COLORD PERIOD PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM . . . *** This is a lovely collection of finely hand-colored albumen images. The images are from western, and southern Japan, from Nikko down to Osaka, and Nagasaki. Albums of these places are not common in the Japanese photographica genre. Thou many are not signed nor identified by their negative numbers, this is clearly the work of some of Japan's excellent and celebrated photographers. . It is entirely possible, this is one of a group of photograph albums covering Japan, this being a second volume, the first probably covered Yokohama and the Tokyo area. . The album begins where the first volume most likely left off. Regardless this is an excellent example of early Japanese photography. . *** The photographers are questionable, however saying this, we have identified some in Bennett [see below] by their negative numbers. Namely #746 attributed to Kashima or Ogawa Kazumasa. Number 454a attributed to Kusakabe; #54 attributed to Ogawa Kazumasa ad Ogawa Sashichi. . * THE NEGAVTIVE NUMBERS: A good portion of these images have negative numbers, most of which are not listed in Bennett. It is a well known fact, that a good number of Japanese negatives were sold, loaned borrowed and exchanged between both foreign and Japanese photographers and photograph studios from the 1860's onwards. Therefore the exact photographer who took the photograph is commonly in question. Though there has been a lot of research and efforts to identify negative numbers, each photographer and photographic studio enhanced, changed or altered the original negative at will to create a system that would match his own needs. This left complete chaos in the field for those of use who would like to truly identify the actual person responsible for taking the photograph. . * This album contains a good number of unidentified photographs, but skillfully taken and composed with a keen eye, we identify: . FROM THE FRONT: 1. Unknown view of a large river with a bridge and lumberyard in the foreground. There is no negative number, it was likely taken near Yokohama or Tokyo along a large river with low hills in the background. Several small boats ply the river. The bridge seems to be built of steel, indicating a Meiji period work. . * 2. [Osaka] Castle and large moat, unidentified, with low mountains in the background. Nicely done with a keen eye. This is confirmed to be Osaka castle, a very similar view is found and is illustrated Zannier [see below] on p.61 as "Moats Osaka" by Felice Beato. . * 3. Typical street scene, a single electric pole in the immediate foreground, with 2-3 other poles in the deep foreground, a few wires go to businesses. A large number of people, rickshaw pullers are in the street, a large majority of people face the photographer who must have been on a very tall ladder, causing a commotion, nevertheless the image is very clear and no loss of focus during exposure. This must be dated around the late 1870's-1880's with the advent of electricity. A small fleck of the photo surface lacking, else clean, a touch of over done red as common in the early Meiji period. . * 4. Numbered in the negative: A382 Tennoji Pagoda, Osaka. This shows a nice two-sided perspective of the pagoda and the background temple building. . * 5. Numbered A 420 Kasuga at Nara. Shows a lovely pathway with four deer, many stone lantern on both sides of the road, thick forest trees. This exact image is found in March, see below, on p.112. . * 6.Numbered A 415 Nigetsudo at Nara. Shows the stone steps up to the shrine, with is stunning architecture. A few people freeze during the photographing. Beautifully composed. . * 7.Numbered 75 Nara Park. This shows a pavilion with three people looki
