Biller, Werner Berg: Holzschnitte, Klagenfurt, 2001). Das innige Verhältnis der beiden Figuren hier erinnert an Bergs Darstellungen der Beichte, ein Thema, das er später einige Male aufgegriffen hat.

        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.

        Peters Juul.

      . 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..

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.

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. 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&#39; 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.

        Warp and Woof

      London - Smith, Elder and Co., 1870. London - Smith, Elder and Co., 1870 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A Victoriannovel by Harriet Parr, who wrote under the pseudonym Holme Lee. Many of her books went through more than one edition, and several were also published in America. At least one was picked up by the Leipzig firm of Bernhard Tauchnitz, which specialized in inexpensive English-language paperbacks for travelers. Aiding Parrs success was the fact that she was a favorite author of the founder of Victorian Londons largest lending library, Charles Edward Mudie, to whose sense of decency her fiction strictly conformed with its depictions of shy maidens and their decent love problems. The title is a reference to weaving and cloth-making, indicating the wholesome nature of the work. Condition: In a half-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally smart, with just some light rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are mainly bright and clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Original Watercolor Design for Beaux Art Ceiling.

      ND but ca 1870-90], [NP but probably Syracuse, NY - 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.
