        La Terre, Etudes geographiques. Le jeu de globe

      Nuremberg: Ch. Kapp, circa, 1870. Puzzle globe, standing 210 mm. tall, the globe sliced into six horizontal sections, the two poles present each as a full slice, the two tropics divided into four equal sections, and the two equatorial slices divided into six, each section with a printed descriptive note pasted on the upper side and a detailed map of one of the land masses on the lower (therefore describing the five continents on the upper and mapping them on the lower), the whole completed with a black enamel base and turned knob at the top, 23 pieces in total (including the base), some rubbing but in remarkably fine condition; complete with the original engraved timber box, dimensions 125 x 210 x 170 mm., paper label "Etudes geographiques" to the lid, and the printed instructions pasted on the interior. "La plus grande îles est Nlle Hollande…" An exceptionally attractive puzzle globe, unusually fine and complete with its original box. The colourful printed label to the box designates this as 'Etudes geographiques', but it is described on the globe itself as simply 'La Terre'. A printed note on the globe confirms that the maker is Charles Kapp of Nuremberg, although the French captions strongly suggest that it was made for the export market. Not a great deal is known about Kapp - he is not, for instance, recorded in Tooley's Dictionary of Mapmakers - although he is thought to have been active from around 1860. We have not handled another Kapp globe before, nor, indeed, have we ever handled a comparable puzzle globe. It is certainly of considerable rarity, and the survival of such a globe, particularly in such exemplary original condition, marks this out as one of the more striking cartographic pieces that we have offered. One of the exquisite aspects of this puzzle is that each of the sections of the globe also features printed images to top and bottom: each of the five major regions, that is, has its own highly decorative cartouche and a regional map. The cartouche for "Océanie", for example, describes the region as the fifth part of the globe, and one which embraces all of the islands to the south-east of Asia. The cartouche further comments that Nouvelle Hollande is the largest of the islands, although the two figures flanking the cartouche are evidently depictions of men from the Pacific islands. Similarly, the map of the region shows the China Sea in the north-west right through to New Zealand in the south-east. "Nouvelle Hollande" is shown in some detail and with reasonable accuracy. The original box has had some neat minor repairs but is generally in excellent condition, although one of the two original brass hooks has long since snapped. The printed label on the lid depicts a scholar in a frock coat showing a table globe to a boy and a girl, while, at the teacher's left hand, are what appear to be the disassembled parts of a puzzle globe. The original printed instructions, tipped onto the underside of the lid, explain the process of assembling the globe, and assure the enthusiast that once the pieces are assembled with 'un peu d'exactitude l'une sur l'autre, vous veriez le dessin le plus parfait d'un globe de la terre.'.

        Autograph letter signed to "My dear Uncle

      1870. <p>Hooker, Joseph Dalton (1817-1911). Autograph letter signed to one of his uncles (&#147;My dear Uncle&#148;). 3pp. N.p., August 30, 1870. 112 x 92 mm. Trace of former mounting along central fold, a few minor spots, but very good otherwise.</p> <p>From Joseph Dalton Hooker, the eminent British taxonomic botanist, plant geographer, and supporter of Darwinian evolution, who served as director of Kew Gardens (succeeding his father, William Jackson Hooker) from 1865 to 1885. His correspondent might have been William Jacobson (1803-84), Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford, who had married Hooker&#146;s aunt, Eleanor Jane Turner, in 1836. Eleanor was the younger sister of Hooker&#146;s mother, Maria Turner Hooker; both were daughters of banker and botanist Dawson Turner (1775-1858). Hooker had no living uncles on his father&#146;s side. </p> <p>Hooker&#146;s letter reads as follows: </p> <p>"Very many thanks for your kind letter. My Liverpool plans are not yet choate, like many other scientific matters, and I rather dread the fatigue and bother of a huge meeting, at a huge town.</p> <p>"I must however show myself at Huxley&#146;s address, which will no doubt be brilliant, & I hope to stay at Dawson&#146;s for the remainder of the 1st week & then return to Kew & quiet.</p> <p>"Frances [Hooker&#146;s wife] has given up the notion of going. My best love to Aunt and Cousins. Yrs. affectionately Jos.D. Hooker."</p> <p>Hooker refers here to the 40th annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, which was held in Liverpool in 1870. Hooker&#146;s good friend Thomas Huxley (1825-95) was President of the BAAS that year; his presidential address, on the abiogenesis controversy, was delivered before the Society on Sept. 14. &#147;Dawson&#148; refers to Hooker&#146;s uncle, Dawson William Turner (1815-85), headmaster of the Royal Institution School at Liverpool and author of several works on education. </p>

        Flying Squadron on the Derwent River

      Hobart 1870 - Stereoscope, card mount measuring 175 x 83mm., both images in excellent condition, blank rear face flecked. Rare stereoscopic photograph of the Royal Navy "Flying Squadron" on their visit to the Derwent River in January 1870. The Flying Squadron, under the command of Rear Admiral Hornby, was a travelling display of British naval supremacy which visited Sydney and Melbourne before arriving in Hobart on 2 January 1870. Although unarmed, the fleet played a role in asserting British naval power in the farther corners of the empire. This remarkable stereogram, captured from Government House overlooking the Derwent River, depicts five of the fleet vessels at anchor. This image is attributable to Hobart-based commercial photographer, grocer and entrepreneur Samuel Clifford (1827-1890). Clifford arrived in Tasmania from London in 1848 and quickly established himself as an industrious photographer and associate of innovative Hobart based stereographer Thomas J. Nevin. Clearly, Clifford was well established commercially before the visit of the Flying Squadron: an advertisement in the Tasmanian Almanac for 1869 boasts over 1,000 photographic views for sale available in album, cabinet and stereogram formats, including a deluxe suite celebrating the visit of the Duke of Edinburgh to Hobart in 1868. Although unsigned, and although this actual image does not appear to be otherwise recorded in Australian institutional holdings, Clifford was certainly the most prominent photographer associated with the visit of the Flying Squadron to Tasmanian waters, and the style of the present image accords well with known photographs by him. The collection of Sir William Crowther donated to the State Library of Tasmania, for example, contains several early photographs of the Flying Squadron by Clifford Samuel from a number of vantage points including Government House, the Domain, Rosny and Hobson's Bay. By the same token the pencil note to the rear, although partially obscured, appears to be in the same hand as at least one other similar scene (compare, for example, the inscription to the lower margin of the image in the Crowther collection also taken from the hillcrest at Government House).

        Corsaire Triplex

      Ancienne Libraire Furne, c., Paris 1870 - Quarto, engraved title in red and black, extensively illustrated; a bright fine copy in the original lavishly decorated pictorial cloth with bevelled boards, all edges gilt. A fine copy of this beautifully illustrated deluxe edition of Corsaire Triplex, in which the daring heroes Armand and Robert Lavarède travel to Australia and the Pacific on the "Karrovarka", an electric floating fortress This delightful story, with its uncommon Australasian theme, is by the French adventure writer Paul d'Ivoi, and is part of a series of works published as the Voyages Excentriques. The series was intended to capitalise on the tremendous fascination with the works of Jules Verne, and certainly makes a striking visual comparison with the glorious editions of Verne published around the turn of the twentieth century. This work was written by "Paul d'Ivoi", actually the writer Paul Deleutre (1856-1915). Deleutre came from three generations of writers, beginning as a journalist writing for Le Journal Des Voyages and the newspaper Le Matin. In time he become one of the most successful writers of juvenile adventure novels, and ultimately published some 21 volumes for this series. Deleutre's work is famous for its adventurous plots and fast pace, even when compared with the novels of Jules Verne. Cosaire Triplex follows the story of Robert Lavarède who flees to Australia and meets the "Corsaire Triplex", although many of the plot devices are now considered variations on Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. In his novels, Deleutre's heroes often circumnavigate the globe and dive under the sea on fantastic futuristic machines and use modern technology including cinematography, the telephone and submarines. The work is lavishly illustrated with many engravings, some full page, and a further 8 full paged tinted lithographs all by Louis Tinayre (1861-1941). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Original Watercolor Design for Beaux Art Ceiling

      [NP but probably Syracuse, NY: , ND but ca. 1870-90] [NP but probably Syracuse, NY. ND but ca. 1870-90]. Watercolor on laid paper, 19 x 13", of ceiling design for large rectangular room; soft gray ground with soft pink overlay in lattice motif, elaborate center medallion of light blue, dark blue, gold and pink with shell motif on either side of central pendent, six quatre foil medallions, one at each end and two on each side, in gray, light blue, and dark rose; the side borders in gray with 10 rosettes in light and dark pink highlighted with 10 small roundels of deep rose highlighted with blue strapwork. folded in middle with small closed tear at one end of fold, paper a bit age-toned at extremities, else fine with colors bright and fresh. Although the work is unsigned, it was purchased from the estate of the widow of Archimedes Russell together with his leather wallet diary for 1863 and other personal letters now in the Kroch Library at Cornell University. It is on paper identical to other architectural drawings by Russell at the Kroch Library. Other architectural watercolors by Russell in the collections of Syracuse and Cornell are not signed, and it appears he did not sign many of his works. Archimedes Russell, 1840-1915, was born in Andover, MA and first trained with well-known Boston architect John Stevens. In 1862 Russell relocated to Syracuse and apprenticed with Horatio N. White. By 1868 Russell was working for himself and was in demand. He took Melvin L. King as a partner in 1888. The firm that Russell established in 1868 continues to this day, known as King & King. It is the oldest architectural firm in the state of New York. Russell designed some 850 structures in and around Syracuse for the next 45 years. He served as professor of architecture at Syracuse University and built many of that institutions important buildings.He built a number of structures at Cornell University, including McGraw Hall Tower and Hiram Sibley Hall which houses Cornell's School of Architecture. This is a lovely architectural drawing in a pleasing color palette from one the most important American architects of the 19th century.

      . 2den forögede Udgave. Köbenhavn: Fr.Wöldikes Forlag 1870. 24 s. med 24 tegninger af Pietro Krohn, skarne i trae af F. Hendriksen og C. L. Sandberg. Indbundet i det originale dekorerede kartonnagebind.<br>Et meget rent og velholdt eksemplar, med meget lidt slitage, lagt i en smuk nyere bogaeske med skindtitelfelt. * Fire ar efter udsendelsen af försteudgaven af denne berömte klassiske börnebog, udsendte Wöldikes Forlag denne udgave - den anden eller som nogle kalder den "den anden försteudgave". Forfatterne var staerkt utilfredse med förste udgaven fra 1866, der ligeledes var udgivet af Wöldikes Forlag. Den malte kun 17x9 cm. og var illustreret med handkolorerede litografier. Toppen var efter engelsk forbillede skaret rundt, sa bogen nemmere kunne puttes i en julesok. Teksten til den nye udgave blev foröget og aendret en hel del, ligesom bogen fik nyt omslag, nyt format og nye illustrationer. Denne udgave, af denne ultimative danske julebog, udkom ogsa kun i et oplag. Traeklodserne til illustrationerne var i 1875 blevet udlant til Frenckell och Son i Stockholm i forbindelse med udgivelsen af en svensk udgave af bogen under navnet "Lille Ottos Julehelg". Men, som ofte, nar det har med svenskerne at göre, gik det galt, trykkeriet braendte og dermed traeklodserne..

Halbleinen der Zeit, 8°. - Sehr seltene Schrift, in kleinster Auflage publiziert zur fünfzigjährigen Wiederkehr der Errichtung des Rosengartens auf der Pfaueninsel auf der Havel. - Vom Verfasser Ferdinand Jühlke signierter Titel, mit dessen vierzeiligen eigenhändigen Widmung: "Seinem lieben Freunde Herrn Dr. Schlapp in Erfurt zur fr(eundlichen) Erinnerung an den Verfasser !" - Johann Bernhard Ferdinand Jühlke (* 1815 in Barth; 1893 in Potsdam) war deutscher Gartenbau-Lehrer und Gartengestalter. Er zählte zu den Initiatoren der ersten internationalen Gartenbauausstellung in Erfurt im Jahr 1865. Er lehrte an der Königlichen Landwirtschaftlichen Akademie in Eldena bei Greifswald als akademischer Gärtner. Dort bildete er Studenten im Obstbau, in der Obstverwertung, im Baumschulbetrieb sowie in Aufzucht, Neuzüchtung und Verbreitung von für die klimatischen Verhältnisse Pommerns geeigneten Obst- und Gemüsesorten aus. Im Jahr 1866 berief der preußische König Wilhelm I. Ferdinand Jühlke als Nachfolger von Peter Joseph Lenne zum Direktor des Königlichen Preußischen Hofgartens und Leiter der Königlichen Landesbaumschule und Gärtner-Lehranstalt nach Potsdam. Jühlke gestaltete neben den Königlichen Preußischen Gärten und Gartenanlagen der Aristokratie auch Stadtparks und städtische Plätze. Die Pfaueninsel auf der Havel bei Potsdam mit ihrem Landschaftsgarten gehört heute zur Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg und steht seit 1990 zusammen mit den Schlössern und Parks von Sanssouci in Potsdam und Glienicke in Berlin als Weltkulturerbe auf der Liste der UNESCO. Bereits 1821, mit Beginn der grundlegenden Umgestaltung der Pfaueninsel durch Lenne, war eine umfangreiche private Rosensammlung angelegt worden. Zwischen Schloss und Kastellanhaus wurde ein Rosengarten gestaltet, die erste Einrichtung dieser Art in Preußen. - In frischer und sauberer Erhaltung.
