        Tri portreta tatar. [Three Portraits of Tatar People].

      Astrakhan early s 1870 - 3 albumen prints pasted on original cards, printed captions below, two bearing photographer's credit; two prints have minor scratches. Dimensions: app. 15 x 10.5 cm Three early portraits of the Tatar people taken by Vishnevskiy (fl.1860s-90s) that are likely to have been included in his album Astrakhan published in 1873. Working in his studio in Astrakhan from 1861, he was one of the first to produce photographic albums with views and characters of the province. Vishnevskiy presented one of such albums to Aleksandr II during his visit to Astrakhan in 1871 and in return received a diamond ring from the Tsar. Vishnevskiy's studio was a successful business, which after his death was run by his wife up until 1911. Being an important historical record, Vishnevskiy's portraits and views of Astrakhan constitute a significant part of the collection of the State Astrakhan Historical Museum.

        A Journal of a Tour of Discovery Across the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, in the Year 1813. Second edition.

      Sydney: Gibbs, Shallard & Co. 1870. Duodecimo, 46 pp.; in a neat old binding of half calf and marbled boards, with the original printed front wrapper bound in. The scarce second edition of this Australian exploration classic: the original account of the first great feat of Australian inland exploration. A series of previous attempts had failed to find a path into the hinterland and for twenty-five years the formidable barrier of the Blue Mountains had locked the settlers out of the interior.A landholder in the Parramatta district, Blaxland set out in 1813 to conquer the Blue Mountain barrier and seek out new pastures to the west of the ranges. With his companions Lawson and Wentworth, he finally accomplished his mission on 31 May 1813, sighting rich lands from the summit of the mountain later called Mount Blaxland. From the top they could see forests and grasslands capable of supporting the colony's herds for the next thirty years. Surveyor George Evans, on direct instructions from Macquarie, followed the path blazed by Blaxland and broke through to the magnificent pastures of the Bathurst Plains; within a year William Cox had completed his road to the new territories. By 1815, a settlement had been made at Bathurst.The first edition of this book is one of the great Australian rarities - about a dozen copies are known, and its value is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This second edition was published by Blaxland's son because, as he noted, copies of the first edition were "no longer to be had". 34 years later Blaxland's grandson was to publish a third edition (Maitland, 1904) because by then "the two previous editions [were] no longer obtainable" Provenance: Private collection (Sydney). Neat repair to upper corner of front wrapper.

        PORTRAIT OF BOY WITH THE U.S. CAPITOL BUILDING IN BACKGROUND. [title supplied]

      [Washington, DC] 1870 - Original watercolor, charcoal and chalk drawing on canvas, 24.5 x 29.5 in., glazed and framed. Signed by the artist. The young boy is well dressed in a double-breasted suit and bow tie, with button-up boots. He stands on a tiled terrace, one hand one a balustrade, the other tucked into his jacket pocket staring determinedly off into the distance. Through the surrounding trees and shrubbery is a view of a small fountain and the Capitol Building on a slight hill. Oscar Robert, born in Copenhagen, Denmark emigrated to the United States around 1864 and settled in Washington, D.C. where he remained for the rest of his life, according to a brief biography in Virgil McMahan's "The Artists of Washington, D.C. 1796-1996," [Wash., DC: 1995]. He worked in oils, watercolor and crayon. During the late 1880s he shared a studio and gallery with Earl Keyser. Boyd's 1887 Directory for Washington lists their gallery at 307 7th St. NW. McMahan states that this portrait is the only one of his works known. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.

        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.

        Arm for the Right; or, the Invalid's Last Appeal

      The author, [Haverhill, Mass. 1870 - First edition. Broadside. Approximately 12" x 9". Modest but pervasive chipping and tears confined to the margins, good or better. Twenty-one stanzas of verse and two paragraphs of explanation from a lady of Haverhill, Massachusetts, who here stands up in verse for her right to salubrious peace and quiet in the face of the repeated cacophonous depredations of the Haverhill Rifle Club---or as she has it in her note, "It is now nearly nine months since I have been obliged, let me be ever so sick and helpless, to leave my room or bed at a moment's warning, and flee before the Rifle Club, in order to save my life and reason. And this has been done repeatedly when I have not been able to sit up more than five or ten minutes during the day after leaving the carriage. I should have entered a complaint at the commencement, but the Police Judge, the protector of the public peace and the town representative of Justice, was at the head of this outrage, and could not sustain the cause of right and humanity without involving himself in the overthrow." That Smith's outrage should find vent in verse is of course curious but not perhaps atypical of her time---certainly the ringing sentiments suit themselves to lyric: "Beneath the dark banner Of vice they're arrayed, And on Guilt and Injustice Their footsteps are stayed. Shouting in triumph, As onward they go, To inflict on the helpless New suffering and woe." Smith appears to have published a similarly gloomy collection of verse, Haverhill in Eclipse (Newburyport, 1870) and another scarce broadside aimed against local corruption, A New Year's Address to the True Hearted Citizens and Voters of Haverhill. OCLC notes two locations for this rare appeal. [Attributes: First Edition]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1870 - 1870 Wisden Original Wrappers

      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.
