        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.

        Cloth made from the bark of trees by the South Sea Islandes. Sammlung von Tapa-Textilien.

      o. J. (ev. um 1870-1880).. 15 einmontierte Orig.-Stoffproben auf 15 Blättern und diverse freie Blätter. 8°, blindgeprägter Ganzledereinband der Zeit.. Das Wort Tapa stammt ursprünglich aus Tahiti von wo aus Cook als erster Europäer den Stoff mit nach Europa brachte, Anders Sparrmann hatte in seiner ersten schwedischen Ausgabe über Cooks Reisen Tapa-Proben abgebildet. Der Stoff wird aus Rindenbast vom Papiermaulbeerbaum gewonnen und dient in der Südsee nicht nur für Kleidung genutzt sondern auch für andere Zwecke wie Schlafunterlagen, Vorhänge und Decken etc. In Polynesien werden Tote zur Aufbahrung in verzierte Tapa-Stoffe gehüllt oder wertvolle Geschenke in Tapa verpackt überreicht. Auf den Tonga- und den Fidschi-Inseln waren aufwendig verzierte Tapa-Tücher ein bedeutendes Ausstattungsdetail der königlichen Zeremonien und Feste. Die Stoffproben unseres Exemplars sind jeweils am Ende der Stoffbrobe, oder wenn etwas größer, mittig hinten in den Falz der Seitenlagen montiert. Alle Proben sind recht gut erhalten. Das ganze wurde in einen Notiz-Lederband eines schottischen Buchbinders oder Papierhändlers namens James Miller Oban gebunden (kleiner Firmenaufkleber auf dem vorderen Innendeckel). Oban hatte in den 1870er Jahren ein Geschäft für Notizbücher, Alben und Zeitschriften. Auf dem Vorderdeckel ist ein aufmontierter, handschriftlich mit Tinte in Englisch verfasster Einbandtitel geklebt, der zeitlich ebenso in diese Periode fallen könnte. Ein unikales Büchlein von privater Hand sauber zusammengestellt! Ohne weitere schriftlichen Erklärungen. - Die Kanten des Einbandes etwas beschabt, die Ecken gestaucht, innen schach gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten. Selten! - An excellent collection of 15 pieces of Tapa cloth, likely from the latter quarter of the 19th century. the bookseller whose stamp is affixed to the front pastedwon, "James Miller Oban" mainstained a shop in Scotland that specialized in selling albums and journals in the 1870s. Although there is no indication of who collected the samples, the manuscript tittle to the journal confirms they are from the "South Sea Islands". Tapa clith is an indigenous fabric made in various forms in many of the Polynesian Islands and has long fascinated the explorers who visit there. Anders Sparrman even included examples of the cloth he collected in the first Swedish edition of his account of Cook's voyage. A wonderful collection presenting a variety of designs of Tapa cloth in an edxcellent state of preservation. - The above manuscipt title has been penned on a paper label affixed to the recto of the front board. The album has light shelf-wear.

        Moore's Irish Melodies

      London - William Mackenzie, 1870. London - William Mackenzie, 1870 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An illustratedcollection of the poems of Thomas Moore. Including Lalla Rookh, The Song of Hercules to His Daughter, Merrily Every Bosom Boundeth, and many more. In the early years of his career, Moore's work was largely generic and had he died at this point he would likely not have been considered an Irish poet. From 1806-1807 Moore dramatically changed his style of writing and focus. Following a request by a publisher he wrote lyrics to a series of Irish tunes, in collaboration with John Stevenson, which were published in several volumes. Moore became best known for these Irish Melodies which were enormously popular containing songs such as The Minstrel Boy, The Last Rose of Summer and Oft, in the Stilly Night. Several examples of his music, such as Farewell! But Whenever You Welcome the Hour are available online. Illustrated throughout with numerous vignettes and a frontispiece of the author.

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..
