        Album with Sixty-Three Original Photographs Including Twenty-Six Original Very Early Photographs of Diamond Mining in Colesberg Kopje (Later the Big Hole, Kimberley)].

      1870 - Ca. 1870. Folio (ca. 30x24,5 cm). 35 stiff card leaves (16 blank). With 26 albumen prints of various size (two identical), including one large folding panorama of Colesberg Kopje ca. 9,5x40,5 cm (3 ¾ x 16 in.), ten large images ca. 13x19,5 cm (5 ¼ x 7 ½ in) or slightly smaller, four panoramas ca. 7x20,5 cm (2 ¾ x 8 in.), and eleven small photos ca. 6x9,5 cm (2 ¼ x 3 ¾ in.). One image signed in negative "H. Gros." With 37 small period private photos. Original dark violet full sheep album with raised bands and gilt tooled borders; moiré endpapers, all edges gilt. Album rubbed and worn on extremities, hinges with cracks; some images slightly faded. Overall a very good album. Interesting collection of early historically important photographs of diamond mining in Colesberg Kopje, now known as the Big Hole of Kimberley - one of the largest open mines excavated by hand. The album relates to the fist years of the Colesberg Kopje diamond rush in the 1870s, when a camp of tens of thousands of diggers spread around the hill in less than a year. The album contains several excellent images of the mine, showcasing its depth and infrastructure, including a large folding panorama overlooking the mine with its wooden ladders and wire nets on the surface, and the tent camp town in the background. A large photo shows half naked native mine workers, with shovels and buckets; two white miners are standing on the left. Three nice panoramas show the tent camp town around the Kopje, with bull carts, prospectors, and native workers; there is also a nice street view of the first wooden settlement, with grocery shops and the sign of the "Vine Hotel" clearly seen in the foreground. Two group portraits show a party of well dressed white prospectors or business owners, posing next to a tent with a label of "F. Edglington & Co., 52 Old Kent Road, London". There are also images of white settlers posing in front of the stone houses, apparently one of the first in the area. Nine small photos show humorous posters dedicated to the life on the mine and titled "How they do it in Colesberg Kopje". Among the topics touched are: "The Pleasures of travelling in the disputed territory," "Our "admirable" post office," "The season," "Native Labour" et al. The album also contains 37 period family photos, including cabinet portraits of family members and images taken on Madeira and St. Helena. Overall an important photo collection of the beginnings of diamond mining in South Africa. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collection of Forty-Four Original Photographs of India, with Views of Temples, Mosques and Palaces in Delhi, Agra, Lucknow, Bombay, Fatehpur Sikri, Benares, et al.].

      1870 - Ca. 1870. With forty-four albumen prints ca. 16x20,5 cm (6 ¼ x 8 in), mounted on original leaves, disbound from an album. All but three images with the studio's blind stamp "Frith's series" in the left lower corners, more than half captioned in negative. Over twenty with additional period manuscript captions on the mounts. Some mounts with minor tears and chipping on extremities, several images with creases, but overall a very good collection. Attractive collection of classical architectural photos of India from the studio of Francis Frith, mostly known for his views of Egypt and the Middle East, as well as for his extensive archive of photos of over 7000 British towns and villages, "the only nationally important photographic archive of its kind still in private hands" (Francis Frith Collection online). Sharp and detailed, the images show some famous examples of the ancient Hindu and Mughal architecture in India: Delhi (the palace, Qutub Minar tower, mosques of Jama Masjid and Moti Masjid, tombs of Humayun and Mirza Jahangir, Alai Darwaza gateway et al.); Agra (the gateway and mausoleum of Taj Mahal, Sikandra, zenana in the Agra Fort, Itmad-Ud-Daulah's Tomb et al.); Lucknow (Qaisar Bagh complex, the Residency, Asfi mosque of the Bara Imambara complex, gate of the Hosseinabad Bazaaret al.); Bombay (stone carvings in the Elephanta and Ellora caves et al.); Fatehpur Sikri (the palace, Tomb of Sheikh Salim Chishti); ancient Hindu temples of Benares and Bendrabund et al. Several photos give an excellent insight into 1870's India, i.e. Panorama of Bombay taken from Mazagaon Fort, pyramids of cotton sacks loaded in the Cotton Green suburb of Bombay; a bull-driven "Hackery", or a view of Delhi taken from the top of Jama Masjid. Overall a very good collection. Francis Frith "is noted for his studies of the Middle East and for establishing the largest photographic publishing firm in the 19th century. He was one of the founder-members of the Liverpool Photographic Society in 1853 and he exhibited portraits and landscapes to much critical acclaim. He made three trips to Egypt and the Holy Land between 1856 and 1860. Although Frith was not the first European photographer to visit Egypt, his work was wider in its geographical scope and more systematic in its coverage than that of, for example, Maxime Du Camp. Frith photographed most of the key monuments several times, combining general views with close studies of their significant details and broader views of their landscape environment. The clarity of his images proved to be of immense value to archaeologists. The photographs are also often powerfully composed, revealing an understanding of the poetic qualities of light that gives them lasting aesthetic value. Frith's earlier experience as a printer proved useful in the commercial exploitation of his photographs. They were exhibited widely, sold through print dealers and issued in serial form to subscribers. In 1858-60 he published Egypt and Palestine Photographed and Described by Francis Frith, the first of a series of magnificent albums containing mounted albumen prints accompanied by letterpress commentaries. In 1862 he also produced a limited edition of The Queen's Bible, illustrated with his photographs of the Holy Land. He had set up his own publishing firm in Reigate in 1859 and he specialized in picturesque scenes for the rising tourist market. Through his shrewd exploitation of the picture postcard the firm quickly became the largest of its kind in the 19th century. The business remained in the Frith family after his death and was wound up in 1971. Material salvaged from the premises was later reissued as the Francis Frith Collection" (Ray McKenzie; Grove Art Online).

        Goethe&#39;s Hermann and Dorothea

      New York - Stroefer & Kirchner, 1870. New York - Stroefer & Kirchner, 1870 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully illustrated Goethe&#39;s Hermann and Dorothea. Bound in cloth with elaborate gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. With a pictorial nameplate to the front pastedown. Hermann and Dorothea is an epic poem written between 1796 and 1797. It is set around 1792 at the beginning of the French Revolutionary Wars, when French forces under General Custine invaded and briefly occupied parts of the Palatinate. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749 1832, was a German writer and polymath. Goethe&#39;s works span the fields of poetry, drama, literature, theology, philosophy, humanism, and science. His magnum opus, lauded as one of the peaks of world literature, is the two-part drama Faust. Goethe was one of the key figures of German literature and the movement of Weimar Classicism in the late 18th and early 19th centuries; this movement coincides with Enlightenment, Sentimentality, Sturm und Drang, and Romanticism. The author of the scientific text Theory of Colours, his influential ideas on plant and animal morphology and homology were extended and developed by 19th century naturalists including Charles Darwin. He also served at length as the Privy Councillor of the duchy of Weimar. Wilhelm von Kaulbach, 1805 1874, was a German painter from Bad Arolsen, Waldeck. Kaulbach&#39;s was a beauty-loving art. He is not supreme as a colourist; he belongs in fact to a school that holds colour in subordination; but he laid, in common with the great masters, the sure foundation of his art in form and composition. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The front hinge has failed. There is significant wear to the extremities, including significant bumping and rubbing, with loss to the cloth, and with a section missing to the spine. There is discolouration to the front board and spine. Internally the pages have slight browning to the page edges, with scattered spots. There are institutional labels to the front free-endpaper and an institutional blindstamp to the title page. Overall the condition is good only..

        Observations on the Geology and Zoology of Abyssinia, made during the Progress of the British Expedition to that Country in 1867-68.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1870 - Octavo. Original green sand-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, blind panels to the boards, terracotta surface-paper endpapers. Just a touch rubbed, front hinge just started, front free endpaper slightly scuffed, light toning, a scatter of foxing, but overall a very good copy indeed. Folding tinted lithographic frontispiece, and 8 other lithographic plates, 6 of them hand-coloured ornithological studies transferred to stone by Keulemans from his own drawings, and printed and coloured by Trap of Leiden, also a folding coloured lithographic geological map, 4 wood-engraved plates and a number of illustrative vignettes to the text. First edition. Educated at the Royal School of Mines and the Bergakademie in Freiberg, Blanford joined the Geological Survey of India in 1854. "Late in 1867 he was attached to the Abyssinian expedition and accompanied the troops to Magdala, making large collections, both geological and zoological. Work on these occupied much time after his return to India in October 1868, and brought him to England on six months' service leave; the outcome was his valuable book, Observations on the Geology and the Zoology of Abyssinia" (DNB) In 1871 he was back in India and began his most important surveying appointment, the India-Persia Boundary Commission. In connection with this work he visited Baluchistan, Tehran, the Alborz mountains, and the Caspian Sea. He returned to England through Russia and Moscow in September 1872. The rigours of this survey left him weakened in health, he eventually retired in 1882 and settled in London. He died in 1905. A very superior copy with the armorial bookplate of Sir Hugh Clifford - British Resident at Pahang, 1896&#150;1900 and 1901&#150;1903; Governor of North Borneo, 1900&#150;1901; Governor of the Gold Coast, 1912&#150;1919; Nigeria, 1919&#150;1925, and Ceylon, 1925&#150;1927; Governor of the Straits Settlements and British High Commissioner in Malaya f1927-30 - and later book-ticket of Humphrey Winterton to the front pastedown.
