        Hand-Painted Tintype of an African-American Girl

      1870. (PHOTOGRAPHY). Hand-Painted Tintype of an African-American Girl. Pittsburgh, circa 1870. Large original tintype portrait, almost completely hand-painted, measuring 6-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches; framed, entire piece measures 15 by 12-1/2 inches. $2500.Original full-length hand-painted tintype portrait of a young African-American girl, dressed in Sunday best, posing at an open gate.“African-American clients merely wanted to have their likenesses preserved for future generations. Thus, it is only now, more than a hundred years later, that these photographs represent a vital part of African-American history. One recognizes the trappings of artifice but is inspired nonetheless by the enthusiasm and positive spirit inherent in these portraits” (Willis, 3). Tintypes (aka “melainotypes” or “ferrographs”), themselves, are a distinctively American invention, a modification of the ambrotype, made on black japanned sheet iron. This lovely portrait was found in a Pittsburgh-area home.A few tiny surface abrasions. Extremely good condition.

His interests shifted to matters of financial policy. He advocated lower tariffs (except for items produced in his district) and was an avid crusader for hard money.

        Trient. Italienische Landschaften.

      1870. Cromolitografia applicata su cartoncino di cm 33x26. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Scheda bibliografica tratta da Wikipedia. Rottmann was born in Handschuhsheim (today a part of Heidelberg) on 11 January 1797. There he received his first drawing lessons from his father, Friedrich Rottmann, who taught drawing at the university in Heidelberg. He formed himself chiefly through the study of nature and of great masterworks. In his first artistic period, he painted atmospheric phenomena. After gaining prominence with Heidelberg at Sunset (a water color), and Castle Eltz, he settled in Munich in 1822 and devoted himself to Bavarian scenery. Here his second period began, and in 1824 he married Friedericke, the daughter of his uncle, Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell, who served as an attendant at court.\rThrough this connection, he made the acquaintance of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, who in 1826/27 sponsored his travels in Italy in order to widen his repertoire, which up to that point consisted solely of domestic, German, landscapes. In Italy, Rottmann made sketches for the 28 Italian landscapes in fresco which he was commissioned to paint in the arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich. The cycle, completed in 1833, gave visual expression to Ludwig's alliance with Italy, and raised the genre of landscape painting to the height of history painting, the preferred mode of the King's other great commissions for monumental painting. The frescos unfortunately deteriorated under climatic influences. The cartoons for them are in the Darmstadt Gallery.\rIn 1834 Rottmann traveled to Greece to prepare for a commission from Ludwig for a second cycle; one might mark here the beginning of his third period. At first also intended for the Hofgarten arcade, the 23 great landscapes were eventually installed in the newly-built Neue Pinakothek where they were given their own hall.\rOf his easel pictures, Ammer Lake and Marathon are in the National Gallery, Berlin; The Acropolis of Sikyon and Corfu in the Pinakothek, Munich; others in the Schack Gallery, Munich, and in Karlsruhe; and seven in the Leipzig Museum.\rCarl Rottmann died on 7 July 1850 in Munich, aged 53 of undisclosed causes. He is buried in the Alter Südfriedhof in Munich.

In 1848, he moved to Paris where “his facility as a draughtsman was extraordinary.” He was a prolific worker and his subjects were usually religious or historical. He died in January of 1883. His grand and magnificent style is a perfect complement for Cervantes heroic tale. This massive tome is one of our favorite printings of the Spanish classic and, because of the weight of the text block, is usually found broken and loose. This copy is as sturdy as one could hope for and is very handsome too. A great compliment to any fine library and a must for the collector of 19th century illustrated books.

At the top details about the drawing and the owner of the work, Nándor Pollacsek, a representative of the Synagogue on Aréna Street, Budapest (today Dózsa György Street), who kept it at his private apartment. Underneath in the second section elaborating on the theme, claiming that it was Joseph who saved the people of the world, including the Arabs, during the famine in Egypt. It goes on to say that the Arab leaders, especially the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem (Mohammed Amin al-Husseini?), an ally of Hitler, are threatening the Jewish refugees in Palestine and nobody should be surprised if during this "contemporary famine" the world would stay passive just as they did when Jewish people were mass murdered. The third section written vertically along the left edge two quotes from the Bible: "and the famine was over all the face of the Earth." Gen. 41:56, and "And the famine was sore in the land." Gen. 43:56. Signed Lakos Alfred 30/X. 947 under section two. This paper folded vertically in the middle.

On Darwin's embossed letterhead (Down, Bromley, Kent, S.E.) with "Bromley" crossed out and changed to "Beckenham" in Darwin's hand. To Philip Lutley Sclater, who has been reading the proofs of Darwin's "Descent of Man", describing the ornithologist William Henry Hudson (1841-1922) as "a hater of evolution": "I will most gladly accept your kindness. I look at the delay caused as nothing comparatively to the great benefit. I never expected or hoped for many criticisms, but I still hope you will point out any serious error, whatever trouble this may cause to my Printers. I suppose I shall soon receive Revises, but Messrs Clowes [the printers of The Descent of Man] sometimes delay the 2d proofs till 23 of a whole vol. is corrected in first proof. - Mr Hudson's paper is very interesting & it pleases me to see so staunch a hater of evolution a little staggered at the end of his paper [.] I will not now waste quite so much time in trying to find every name quoted in some book; so you will doubly help me". - One of the earliest known examples of the use of the term "evolution" in the Darwinian sense, pre-dating its first appearance in print in "The Descent of Man".

        Original study for The Sirens

      1870. BURNE-JONES, Edward. Large original study for The Sirens. No place, circa 1870. Colored chalks on brown paper, handsomely matted and framed. Image measures 14 by 18 inches; entire framed piece measures 19 by 25 inches. $16,500.Splendid original chiaroscuro colored chalk drawing, a large preliminary compositional study for The Sirens.Burne-Jones, leading painter and designer of Victorian England and among the most important of the Pre-Raphaelite artists, is best known for his collaborations with William Morris, for whom he designed stained glass and tapestries and illustrated some of the Kelmscott Press publications, including the magnificent 1896 Kelmscott Chaucer. Of his own haunting work he stated, “I mean by a picture a beautiful romantic dream, of something that never was, never will be— in a light better than any that ever shone— in a land no-one can define or remember, only desire— and the forms divinely beautiful” (Chilvers, 79-80). This beautiful work is a preliminary compositional study for The Sirens, which Burne-Jones began to paint in 1870 but, despite many attempts over two decades, was never able to finish. The allegory of shipwreck does, nonetheless, appear in other of his works, including The Voyage to Vineland (stained glass window) and The Holy Grail (tapestry). A pastel [circa 1875] in a Spanish private collection and a watercolor [circa 1875] in the South African National Gallery are both reminiscent of this drawing. Exhibited: Mass Gallery (1967); Piccadilly Gallery (1971); Grolier Club (1971). Provenance: Virginia Surtees; Hartnoll and Eure; Kenneth A. Loft; Frederick R. Koch; Sotheby’s.A lovely original work, wonderfully framed.

        Paris 1870-1871 (title from spine)

      Bound album containing eight portfolios of 12 etchings each, for a total of 96 original etchings, half of the images by Martial-Potémont, the other half by his contemporaries, all pertaining to the upheavals in Paris in 1870-1871, with most of the images printed on full-page sheets of Japanese paper (sheet size approx. 12" x 17", image sizes varying), and with some smalller images mounted on sheets. Some of the portfolio title pages with creases and small tears. Scattered foxing and soiling throughout, mostly minor, but several images more severely affected. Folio. 3/4 leather and boards, raised spine. Rubbing to extremities, some minor leather loss along spine, soiling and areas of fabric loss to back cover. Paris 1870-1871. A spectacular album comprised of numerous complete portfolios of etchings by Martial-Potémont, Maxime Lalanne, Edmond Yon, F. Pierdon, and Léopold Desbrosses, all important French graphic artists from the late 19th century. Martial-Potémont is perhaps the most well-known of the group: a prolific etcher, his work was primarily published and distributed by Alfred Cadart, a leading print publisher in Paris in the second half of the 19th century. He was also a friend of the Barbizon artist Charles-François Daubigny, and exhibited at the Salon de Paris from 1846 to 1882. His comprehensive work, L'Ancien Paris, comprises 300 etched views of the city. The etchings included in this album depict specifc aspects of the turmoils in Paris along with related incidents and themes, and provide a comprehensive and detailed overview of the events of 1870-1871 and their effects on the city and its inhabitants. Many of the images also contain significant textual context and information. A significant archive, rare to find assembled in one collection. The portfolios included in the present album are as follows: Souvenirs Artistiques du Siège de Paris 1870-1871 by Maxime Lalanne; Paris Pendant la Siège, Paris Incendié, Paris Sous la Commune, and Les Prussiens Chez Nous, all by Martial-Potémont; St. Cloud Brulé! by F. Pierdon; Paris et Ses Avant-Postes by Léopold Desbrosses; and Aujour de Paris Aprés la Guerre by Edmond Yon.

        Corsaire Triplex.

      Paris: Ancienne Libraire Furne, c. 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 fortressThis 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).

        A collection of 17 broadsides, 2-page publications, and pamphlets.

      Guatemala: Various publishers/presses, 1870–79. All items folio. For Guatemala the 1870s were years of a Liberal government and 19th-century Liberal reforms: confiscation of Church property and the concomitant excloistering of nuns and monks, improved sanitation, improved supervision of food handling, economic reforms, securing a free press, bringing telegraphy and the railroad to the nation, and improving the police force and public education.    The decade began with the 1871 overthrow of Vicente Cerna Sandoval's Conservative regime and then saw other military actions including the putting down of the 1872 attempted coup d'etat by the recently ousted Conservatives; and because that failed plot was supported by the government of Honduras, Guatemala went to war with its neighbor.    The collection touches on war, politics, reform, public health, and reaction to reform. The 1870s saw changes in the printing industry in Guatemala; printing could be done on thinner paper and this collection bears witness to that, with some chipping at edges, some brittleness over all, and some items damp-damaged with loss of blank areas (only). Over all, good to very good condition, with a very few exceptions.

        THE LUCK OF ROARING CAMP and Other Sketches

      1870. [the handsome "Blairhame" copy] Boston: Fields, Osgood, & Co., 1870. Original terra cotta cloth. First Edition. This is Harte's third and best-known book, one which he spent the rest of his life unsuccessfully trying to equal. These tales had originally appeared in the Overland Monthly, of which he was the first editor; the title story had appeared in 1868 in its second issue ("under publisher's protest... The religious press called it 'immoral,' California papers thought it 'singular,' but Eastern critics went headlong into eulogies" [K&H]). The volume also includes such Harte throbs as "The Outcasts of Poker Flat," "Miggles" and "Mliss"; an additional tale, "Brown of Calaveras," would be added to the (later in 1870) second and subsequent editions.~This copy is in terra cotta "FL" cloth (with a texture similar to laid paper); Blanck cites copies in fine-pebbled "C" cloth in green, purple and terra cotta, but had seen "FL" copies only in green and purple. It is in close-to-fine condition (scarcely any wear, but the spine gilt is not quite as bright as it could be). This is an American classic, increasingly difficult to find in collectible condition. Blanck 7246; a Johnson High Spot ("The first stories written by a westerner about the westerners in the western vernacular, the earlier western writers being so afraid of being called 'unliterary' that they ignored the crude but powerful material at hand"). Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase, this copy bears the small leather "Blairhame" bookplate of the noted collector Mrs. J. Insley Blair.

      - WorldCat (2 copies); not in Mendelssohn. A rare primer of the Bantu dialect Ndonga or OshiNdonga, spoken by the Ovambo people in the kingdom of Ondonga in what is now northern Namibia and southern Angola, still spoken today by some 1 million people. It was published by the printing office of the Finnish Literature Society in Helsinki and many of the texts are Christian. Finnish Lutherans set up a mission in Ondangwa, seat of the kings of Ondonga, in 1870, and the present primer was probably intended both to help Finnish missionaries preparing for life in Africa learn Ndonga and for them to use in Ondonga to teach the natives to read and write their own language and to promote Christian ideas.In very good condition, with only very slight browning.
