        NOTEBOOK OF FELICE BEATO & RAIMUND VON STILLFRIED PHOTOGRAPHS.

      [Japan, n.d. ca. 1871-1883]. Notebook mounted sepia tone photographs, two basic sizes: smallest: 108 each 8.5 x 5 cm, largest: 8 each: 14 x 12 cm., all very good, strong, clear non-faded images, first photo has small tear balance fine. This is a rare collection of Stillfried & Beato photographs. Mounted in a lined paper notebook, no covers, 17.5 x 21 cm., soiled first blank & back cover pages, contents quite clean. Each page has about 6 small images per page, and other pages have a combination of one large with about 3 smaller sized photos, [22 pages] with photos, balance are blanks. A famous photograph is found on page [15], showing four Japanese men pushing a cart ladened with several bails of rice. This is illustrated in to common reference books: Hugh Cortazzi et al: JAPAN CAUGHT IN TIME, photograph 27, attributed to Von Stillfried, in a color version. It is also illustrated in ONCE UPON A TIME, page 79 again in color, but this time with the number 563 in lower right corner, attributed to Felice Beato. Beato had been an early Yokohama photographer in Japan from 1869-1877. The great fire of 1866 had destroyed a large number of his negatives, so he spent a year working diligently to replace all he had lost. Exhausted by 1868, he began to look for other business; in 1877, he sold his stock and archives to Von Stillfried. Therefore this collection has that distinct look of Beato's works, with some likely Von Stillfried added images. The images were available for purchase by foreigners who visited Yokohama and bought some memorial photos, most of which were put into handsome lacqu- er albums. A few other foreigners who had less money to spend just bought selected photos and put them in their own albums, ergo what we have here. Old pen captions read: A memorial of a visit to Yokohama, and a tour of Japan. Entra- nce to a temple; Burial ground; Views of sacred mountain [Mt. Fuji] 9 photos; Street scent in native town; Yokohama; In the rice fields; Silk weaving room; Picking tea leaves; Views of Yokohama; School for Japanese children; Seminary for young ladies [actually a house of prostitution!]. In the interior [native street scenes]; View of Yokio [sic for Tokio]; Railway terminal; the river; Views of Yokohama:rail- way station; gentleman's house. Nagasaki: Town of Nagasaki; seaport town; in the mountains; town hall of Yokohama; Rail- way between Yokohama &c; Then the captions end. Other photos show Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni; waterfalls, leisure boats with Geisha, Kyoto pagoda; Photos of Japanese girls in elab- orate Kimono costume; A street scene with rickshaw pullers before a great merchant's business [dye shop]. More Japanese women, one in a Western dress, others in Kimono; view of a Japanese temple; Japanese coolies being served wine by two women; Women in winter Kimono and scarf; View of Yokohama city and bay from the bluff; women musicans, rickshaw puller and children; girl having her coiffeur done; Various sellers with "yoke" type carriers on their shoulder; one carries load on her head; girls with umbrella; male coiffeur, basket sellers. The great bronze Buddha at Kamakura, temple scenes, Japanse women with dolls; mother and baby; then the very famous photo of pullers of rice bails; children musicians play Shamisen, another plays the Koto. Waterfalls [Nikko], girls sleeping under Futon; Street with many rickshaws before the theatre. Children entertainers and acrobats,girls playing string games; others drink tea; another group of three sing, others play the Shamisen, another musical group play the Tsutsumi drum,Shamisen, and flute. A child studying by oil lamp. Views of Yokohama harbour and the bay with a large number of grand sized Kuro-fune or "Black ships" which were the earliest of sailing vessels to visit Japan. Most have three large sail masts. Antoher shows the quay in Yoko- hama with its stone lanterns; the last shows a very low in the water type sailing ship with center smoke stack, flying the Japanese flag. The last page shows a man with a Japanese head on a box, perhaps a magician, next to that is one show- ing two Japanese criminals with large wooden stocks on their necks, the last shows a Japanese carpenter with a hoe-like tool plaining wood. An exciting work, showing a wide variety of Japanese life, and two famous ports and their environs. People who catalogue Japanese photos do not always give credit to both Beato and Stillfried for some photographs, but rather naively cite just one photographer. Due to the nature of the transfer of the Beato business to Stillfried, there is always a question, as to which person took the photo or made a reprint of it. Nevertheless, this collection is early and quite rare ! A large number of these are not found in the reference books, perhaps they were taken prior to the fire and are thus quite early. See ONCE UPON A TIME: VISIONS OF OLD JAPAN: PHOTOGRAPHS BY FELICE BEATO AND BARON RAIMUND VON STILLFRIED for excellent background information. Beato went to Japan in 1863 where he and Charles Wirgman founded the first Egnlish-language Japanese magazine: JAPAN PUNCH, which later became the FAR EAST, enhanced with actual photographs tipped in. Beato was the first foreign person to establish a photographic business in Yokohama. See also [Helene Bayou]: FELICE BEATO: Et L'ecole de Yokohama for many other excellent photos, and Yokohama Kaikoo Shiryo Kan comp.: F. BEATO BAKUMATSU NIPPON NIHON SHASHIN SHU for other valuable photos and details. Color scans can be sent by email. .

        Unique Collection of 44 aquarelles for stained glass windows, 5 armorial blueprints, sketch and gouache, 2 original paintings, 12 documents (letters, exhibition catalogues, celebratory programs from various decorative arts associations), and 79 original silver gelatin and albumen prints from the estate of German ornamental painter and stained glass designer Heinrich Friedrich Johann Adels [SIGNED]

      NP ND, Oldenburg - Unique collection of 44 fully rendered aquarelles for stained glass windows, with 21 signed or initialed by the artist and dated, 5 armorial blueprints, sketch and gouache, 2 original paintings, 12 documents (letters, exhibition catalogues, celebratory programs from various decorative arts associations), and 79 original silver gelatin and albumen prints from the lives of German ornamental painter and stained glass designer Heinrich Friedrich Johann Adels (1871-1955), and his father Friedrich Wilhelm (1845-1914). Heinrich Adels' father - Friedrich Wilhelm Adels - was a renowned painter from Oldenburg where he taught art to students such as Johannes von Wicht (1888-1970) who, later on, became a successful artist in the United States. Together with Wilhelm Mohrmann (also a native of Oldenburg), Friedrich Wilhelm Adels was involved in the painted decorations of the somptuous Grand Ducal Court Theatre built by architect Gerhard Schnitger (1841-1917).His son Heinrich Adels attended the Kunstgewerbeschule (School of Arts and Crafts) in Düsseldorf where he earned high honors. Following this, he applied to study at the Royal Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin where he was accepted. Among his teachers were Otto Lessing (1846-1912), a prominent German Historicist sculptor whose work largely shaped the appearance of Berlin in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and professor Ernst Ewald* (1836-1904). Heinrich Adels won a 1st and a 2nd prize in the 1891/1892 academic year.After graduation, he settled in Munich until 1893, and came back to his beloved Oldenburg as a talented painter, graphic and stained glass artist.A preeminent member of the Oldenburger Kunstverein, Adels took part in numerous artistic projects, predominently murals and stained-glass windows for private and commercial installations.During WWI, he was wounded at the front in 1915, and returned to Oldenburg after his demobilisation. There, he resumed his artistic activities which were soon to be caught up in the turmoil of economic crisis following Germany's defeat.He remained in Oldenburg until his death in 1955, at the age of 84.Today, only a few of his spectacular stained-glass windows remain in some of the oldest houses of his native city.The Collection:1) The aquarelles:The 44 aquarelles of stained glass designs predominantly include both the fin-de-siècle and art nouveau (Jugendstil) styles, and are dated from 1905 to 1929 (mainly 1905 to 1912). They display abstract, geometric, floral, fruits, sceneries, a monumental fountain, and other patterns, including armorials with crowns, crosses, lions, eagles, swords, etc.Five of the aquarelles are mounted on heavy cardstock, and 21 are signed or initialed by the artist, and dated.Their size varies from 5 1/4 x 3 1/2" to 16 x 13".2) The armorials:A series of 3 armorial blueprints on transparent paper, one sketch in pencil, and one gouache on heavy cardstock.Two of the three blueprints are for the execution of the same coat of arms "Bulling 1321." The remaining blueprint seems to have been for the execution of the armorial handpainted in gouache.The striking 8 x 7 1/2" gouache is on a 10 1/4 x 10 1/4" heavy cardstock.The 8 1/4 x 7 1/4" original sketch in pencil is on a 13 x 9 3/4" heavy cardstock.These blueprints and gouache are attributed to Heinrich Friedrich Johann Adels.3) The original paintings:- An 8 x 13 1/2" gouache on wooden board. The painting is unsigned and depicts a sad looking tree apparently long dead and weathered by the years. A few patches of green in the background are the only signs of a nature not completely dead. During our research, we have been unable to determine if this painting was executed by Heinrich Adels or his father.- A 11 1/4 X 14 3/4" oil on canvas being a close-up of a woman sleeping. Only her face, her right arm tucked behind her head, and the upper part of her chest are visible. The black, white and grey colors used for this painting create a pale luminosity and a variety of shadows suggesti [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Bancroft's Tourist's Guide, Yosemite, San Francisco and Around the Bay, (South)

      San Francisco: A.L. Bancroft & Company, 1871. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. 314 pp. Published just two years after the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, which enabled easier and faster travel westward, this pocket travel guide to Yosemite was published "for the ordinary use of the average tourist". In the Preface (dated June, 1871) they point out the merits to this more concise, economical version and go on to state "In a new and fast-growing State, like ours, where railroad companies sometimes lay nearly a league of track a day, it is simply impossible that any publication should remain perfectly accurate in every particular, even for twenty-four hours after its first issue" and offer their thanks in advance to "any traveler, railroad, stage or saddle-train agent, or hotel manager" who submits later information or corrections. Per Currey, pages [7]-71 comprise a guide to Yosemite Valley and the Calaveras, Mariposa, and "southern" giant sequoia groves; it also describes northern routes to the valley with rates for hotels, livery, and guides. The book was reissued in 1872, this is the first 1871 edition. ***DESCRIPTION: Original green cloth with a blind-stamped ruled border on both boards, gilt lettering on the front and spine, 16 mo size (approximately 6.25" tall), pagination: (1)-256, (i)-lviii (publisher's ads), with an additional ad being pasted onto the rear pastedown ("Joseph Gillott's Steel Pens of the Old Standard Quality"). ***CONDITION: Overall in very good condition, with a strong, square text block and solid hinges, the entire volume is free of prior owner markings, it is in the original binding and with all 58 pages of ads in the rear as called for by the bibliographies; a professional restorer has strengthened the binding by inserting new boards and putting the original cloth binding over them, so the binding is now strong and sturdy (name of restorer available upon request); the binding does show the original damp-stains. Note that internally the volume has old damp-staining to the flyleaves and title page, minor damp-staining to the next several pages, with a similar pattern at the rear, with the majority of the text pages being clean and bright. ***CITATION: Cowan pg. 33, Currey 5. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Art of H. Anglada-Camarasa. A Study in Modern Art. [Buch, mit zusätzlicher Originalzeichnung].

      4, 88 S. u. 48 Taf. (1 davon als Frontispiz), Priv.-Pgt. d. Zt. m. gold. Rückenpräg., Kanten tlw. etw. berieben, winziger Riss im Fusssteg des Frontispiz, vereinzelt etw. stockfl. gutes Ex. EA. 1 von 500 Ex. Auf Deckpapier des Frontispiz eine signierte Original-Bleistiftzeichnung (Hüftbild einer Frau, ein Kleinkind tragend, vor Landschaft 16 x 11 cm, unten in Tinte signiert) montiert. Mit Widmung des Künstlers auf Fusssteg des Frontispiz (Muy respetuasamente / a la Senora Dr. O. Salzmann / H. Anglada-Camarasa). - Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa (1871 in Barcelona - 17. Juli 1959 in Pollença) war ein katalanisch-spanischer Maler des Postimpressionismus und des Jugendstils. Anglada Camarasa studierte Malerei an der Escola de Belles Arts de Barcelona (Schule der Schönen Künste in Barcelona) bevor er 1894 nach Paris zog, wo er zunächst unter sehr einfachen Verhältnissen lebte, bevor seine Kunst um die Jahrhundertwende Anerkennung gewann. 1901 eröffnete Anglada Camarasa ein eigenes Atelier in Paris und lehrte später auch an der Académie Vitti. Er nahm an einer großen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil, gewann mehrere internationale Preise und erlangte vor allem in Italien Erfolg. Er war mit russischen Avantgardekünstlern wie Gorki, Meyerhold und Kandinsky befreundet. Der dekorativ-ornamentale Stil seiner Frauenporträts aus der Zeit vor 1914 weist hingegen jedoch deutliche Parallelen zu den Werken von Gustav Klimt auf. 1914 bis 1936 lebte Anglada Camarasa auf den Balearen. 1936, zu Anfang des Spanischen Bürgerkriegs, musste der bekennende Republikaner und Freimaurer ins Exil nach Südfrankreich gehen, 1948 kehrte er jedoch auf die Balearen zurück, wo er 1959 auch verstarb.

Jhs.). - Erste Ausgabe. - Dinse 548. - Kainbacher I, S. 115. - Embacher 249f. - Gerhard Rohlfs (1831-1896) gehört zusammen mit Barth und Nachtigal zu den größten deutschen Afrikaforschern und trug wesentlich zur Erforschung der Sahara, Libyens und des Sudan, jedoch auch der westlichen und mittleren Provinzen Marokkos bei. - Vorliegende Ausgabe beschreibt seine Forschungsreise nach Tripolis und die von dort aus unternommene Reise nach Kyrenaika im östlichen Libyen und der Oase des Jupiter Ammon (heute "Oase Siwa") in den Jahren 1868-1869. - Rohlfs "wendete sich, um den bisher noch nicht von ihm besuchten östlichen Theil der großen Wüste kennen zu lernen, nach dem alten Culturlande der Cyrenaica. Er fuhr von Tripolis nach Benghasi, untersuchte die Ruinenstätten der Pentapolis und drang auf wenig begangenen Karawanenpfaden südwärts nach den Oasen Audjila und Djalo vor. Dann zog er am Nordrande der Libyschen Wüste hin, zunächst nach der Oase Siwah mit ihren merkwürdigen Resten antiker Bauwerke, und dann weiter nach Aegypten. Dabei stellte er als Erster das Vorhandensein eines ausgedehnten Depressionsgebietes fest, das erheblich unter den Spiegel des Mittelmeeres herabsinkt. Daneben lernte er auch die an Einfluß stetig zunehmende mohammedanische Brüderschaft der Senussi kennen, welche sich bemüht, die Welt des Islam durch Verschärfung des religiösen Fanatismus vor den Einflüssen der europäischen Cultur zu bewahren. Im Mai 1869 traf er wohlbehalten in Alexandrien ein und kehrte rasch nach Deutschland zurück" (siehe ADB 53, S. 440ff). - Einbände etwas berieben und gering bestoßen. Rücken mit Resten einer Bibliotheks-Nummer. Innen von sehr guter Erhaltung, vereinzelt minimal stockfleckig.

        After all, not to create only : recited by Walt Whitman on invitation of managers, American Institute, on opening their 40th annual exhibition, New York, noon, September 7, 1871

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. 8vo: vii,[1],[9]-24,[2]pp. Original dark green FL cloth over beveled boards, upper cover stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, plain paper end papers. (BAL notes two bindings, "no sequence established." Ours is binding B, apparently the scarcer of the two. Binding A was of flexible FL cloth (green or terra-cotta). Virtually pristine: fine, bright copy, enclosed in a purpose-made chemise and quarter morocco slipcase. BAL 21405. Wells & Goldsmith, pp. 15-16. Myerson, p. 180-182. First book edition (or second, according to Meyerson) of a poem originally published in broadside format. "This little book, reprinting Whitman's poem that was commissioned for the Managers American Institute Exhibition in New York in 1871, was printed by Roberts Brothers in Boston, and stereotyped by John Wilson and Son in an edition of 2,000 copies; at least 300 copies remained unbound as late as 1889. Whitman eventually retitled the poem "Song of the Exposition" and included it in Leaves of Grass. He issued the book in two different colored bindings, initiating a pattern he would follow with others of his last books--to give readers a choice between dark green and dark red. . . . He was proud of this little book, talking about how "wonderfully neat" it was: "How healthy the print!--the big clean type!" And he found particular significance in the cover: "This is my design--I conceived it." (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) According to Myerson, in 1889 David McKay (then Whitman's publisher) took remainder sheets of the original issue and had them bound in cloth. The first issue flexible cloth binding is common; the second-issue binding in boards is scarce. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine.

        聯邦志略 [Renpō shiryaku]. Summary on the United States.

      Tokyo: Kōsa Rōsōkan 江左老皂館 [Yorozuya Hyōshirō 萬屋兵四郎]. 明治辛未 [1871].. Complete in 2 volumes. Volume I: 5 coloured woodblock maps, including one double page coloured map of the world, a map showing the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, another showing the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and a map of the United States. Volume II: 37 maps, two with outline handcolour. Black and white woodblock illustrations in the text in both volumes. Folded sheets 1-47. Volume II: 1-48 + 1. Patterned yellow paper binding soiled in places, lacks title labels. Traditional Japanese 4 hole stab binding. 26 x 18cm. Presented in modern Japanese cloth covered case with toggles. This influential work on the geography and customs of the United States was first published under the title 美理哥合省國志略 [Meilige he sheng guo zhi lue] in Chinese in Singapore in 1838 by American missionary, E.C. Bridgman writing under his Chinese name of Pi Zhiwen 裨治文. With the hope of removing the uncivilised image of the United States, Bridgman had begun writing this book in 1836 and finished it at the end of 1837 with the help of a Chinese man called 梁植 [Liang Zhi]. Following its publication this work became the educated 19th century Chinese persons standard reference for all related to the United States. There are still disputes among the academics with regard to how many Chinese editions of this book exist. However the majority of scholars agree, that besides the first 1838 edition, the other editions are the 1844 Hong Kong edition titled 亚墨利格合众国志略 [Yamolige he zhong guo zhi lue] and the 1861 Shanghai edition 大美联邦志略 [Da mei lian bang zhi lue]. In 1861 the first Japanese edition was published in Shanghai and it immediately proved very popular running to a further six editions over the following 13 years. Mitukuri Genpo 箕作元甫 (1799-1863), an interpreter for the Edo government was responsible for the Japanese reading marks in the text, rendering the Chinese text more readable for the Japanese readership.

        The History of England. From the accession of James the Second.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1869–1871 - 8 volumes, octavo (170 x 115 mm). Contemporary red calf, green labels lettered in gilt to spines, gilt decorations to spines in compartments, gilt frames to covers, marbled endpapers and edges. Minor rubbing to extremities, spines uniformly a little faded, top edges dust toned, a couple of small scratches to covers, tiny abrasion to front cover of vol. VI; an excellent set. An attractively bound set of Macaulay's history. "The first historical work deliberately designed to outsell the best-selling novel of the day, Macaulay's book immediately fulfilled its author's aspiration. His colourful style and stirring power of description secured for the History a success such as no historical work in the English language had had since Gibbon. Each volume sold about one hundred and fifty thousands copies within a month of its publication, and the numerous reprints and translations into almost every literary language have perpetuated Macaulay's ideas almost to this day" (PMM 328).

        After all, not to create only : recited by Walt Whitman on invitation of managers, American Institute, on opening their 40th annual exhibition, New York, noon, September 7, 1871

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871. First Edition. Cloth. Fine. 8vo: vii,[1],[9]-24,[2]pp. Original dark green FL cloth over beveled boards, upper cover stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, plain paper end papers. (BAL notes two bindings, "no sequence established." Ours is binding B, apparently the scarcer of the two. Binding A was of flexible FL cloth (green or terra-cotta). Virtually pristine: fine, bright copy, enclosed in a purpose-made chemise and quarter morocco slipcase. BAL 21405. Wells & Goldsmith, pp. 15-16. Myerson, p. 180-182. First book edition (or second, according to Meyerson) of a poem originally published in broadside format. "This little book, reprinting Whitman's poem that was commissioned for the Managers American Institute Exhibition in New York in 1871, was printed by Roberts Brothers in Boston, and stereotyped by John Wilson and Son in an edition of 2,000 copies; at least 300 copies remained unbound as late as 1889. Whitman eventually retitled the poem "Song of the Exposition" and included it in Leaves of Grass. He issued the book in two different colored bindings, initiating a pattern he would follow with others of his last books-to give readers a choice between dark green and dark red. . . . He was proud of this little book, talking about how "wonderfully neat" it was: "How healthy the print!-the big clean type!" And he found particular significance in the cover: "This is my design-I conceived it." (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) According to Myerson, in 1889 David McKay (then Whitman's publisher) took remainder sheets of the original issue and had them bound in cloth. The first issue flexible cloth binding is common; the second-issue binding in boards is scarce. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        1871 EXQUISITE Charles Lyell Geology EVOLUTION Darwin Fossils + Provenance

      London : J. Murray, 1871. - 1871 EXQUISITE Charles Lyell Geology EVOLUTION Darwin Fossils + Provenance “Amidst the vicissitudes of the earth's surface, species cannot be immortal, but must perish, one after another, like the individuals which compose them. There is no possibility of escaping from this conclusion.” Charles Lyell, Principles of Geology Charles Lyell was the most important geologist during the 19th-century. He is most-remembered for his work ‘Principles of Geology’ which popularized uniformitarianism concepts. He helped explain earthquakes and volcanoes through means that had yet to be considered. This book is known to have been a major influence on Charles Darwin and his theories and was notable for being the first book to use the term ‘evolution’ in context of biology. This Murray edition of Lyell’s landmark work is filled with over 600 detailed wood engravings and is beautifully bound in decorative leather. Item number: #1286 Price: $599 LYELL, Charles The student's elements of geology London : J. Murray, 1871. Details: • Collation complete with all pages: [xx], 624 o Illustrated with over 600 wood engravings • Binding: Fine leather; tight & secure • Provenance: Armorial Bookplate – Sir David Salomons, Bart. o Sir David Salomons, 1st Baronet (22 November 1797 – 18 July 1873) was a leading figure in the 19th century struggle for Jewish emancipation in the United Kingdom. He was the first Jewish Sheriff of the City of London and Lord Mayor of London. o In 1851, he stood as a Liberal candidate at a by-election in the Greenwich constituency, and on 28 June he was elected as one of the constituency's two Members of Parliament (MPs). o He was not permitted to serve in the House of Commons, because he had not taken the oath of abjuration in the form established by Parliament. However, he did not withdraw quietly: instead he took the oath, but omitted the Christian phrases, and took his seat on the government benches. o He was asked to withdraw, and did so on the second request, but he returned three days later, on 21 July 1851. In the debate that followed, Salomons defended his presence on grounds of having been elected by a large majority, but was eventually removed by the Sergeant-at-Arms, and fined £500 for having voted illegally in three divisions of the House. o When the law was eventually changed in 1858, Lionel de Rothschild became the first Jewish MP to legally take his seat, having been elected in 1857. In the 1859 general election, David Salomons was re-elected for Greenwich and served as the constituency's MP until his death in 1873. o His country house Broomhill north of Tunbridge Wells is now preserved as the Salomons Museum. • Language: English • Size: ~7in X 5in (18cm x 13cm) Our Guarantee: Very Fast.

        The Adventures of a Woman in Search of Her Rights

      1871. Illustrated Anti-Suffrage Tale of a Woman in "Search of Her Rights" Claxton, Florence [1839-1879]. The Adventures of a Woman in Search of Her Rights: Containing Nearly One Hundred Original Drawings by the Author, Which Have Been Reproduced in Fac-Simile by the Graphotype Process of Engraving. Boston and New York: Lee & Shepard, [1871]. [1], [16] ff. Content is a series of illustrations with caption texts. Oblong octavo (8" x 13-1/4"). Stiff full-color pictorial boards, recent pebbled-cloth spine, advertisements (for household products) to verso of rear board, text re-cased. Light soiling, moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear and chipping to corners, light toning to margins of interior. An attractive copy of a scarce title. $1,850. * Later edition. Trained by her father, the painter Marshall Claxton, Florence Caxton enjoyed a successful career as a book and magazine illustrator. She was the first woman to produce a woodblock cut for publication. She often worked alongside with her sister, Adelaide, who was also trained by her father. Both sisters had similar styles, and sometimes worked together, often caricaturing British society. First published in London the 1860s (in an undated edition), The Adventures of a Woman in Search of Her Rights, a satirical view of the role of women, was Florence's last book. The protagonist pursues a traditional male education centered on the writings of John Stuart Mill, which destroys her looks. Since she is now ugly, she must make her way as first a lawyer, then a politician and finally a doctor. Failing at all three professions, she emigrates to the United States and marries the polygamous leader of the Latter Day Saints, Brigham Young. The last two illustrations are of a letter to "Mrs. Brigham Young," and an attractive young woman rising from her slumber, who says: "Thank goodness it's only a midsummer night's dream and I'm not emancipated."

        Patent of nobility donated by Emperor Franz Joseph I (1830-1916) to Wasa Ritter von Stoikovics (Kubin, Hungary 1808-?) for his loyal services at the siege of Ofen (Budapest) in 1849.

      Holy Roman Empire, Vienna d.d. 8 March 1871. Full purple velvet, front cover decorated with gold embossed imperial coat-of-arms. Good condition. 37x28 cm. Silk endpapers, 8 pages on vellum. Printed decorative margins, text handwritten, with a hand painted coat-of-arms in colour and the original signature of Franz Joseph I. The imperial wax seal is attached by the gold cloth rope of the binding, in a disc shaped wooden case. The seal is cracked. This patent of nobility confirms the handwritten letter of 10 June 1850, which conferred the status of Knight (Ritter) to the recipient. Wasa Stoikovics served the Austrian Empire as soldier and became 'oberstleutenant. He deserved his nobility in the year 1849 at the defense of the Festung Ofen and was decorated with the Order of the Iron Crown third class, which also meant that he recieved the noble title of Ritter. 21 years after recieving this order, the nobility and his coat of arms are confirmed with this patent of nobility. The siege of Ofen took place from 4-21 May 1849. 5000 soldiers in Austrian service fought against 30.000 rebellious Hungarians who tried to take over the Festung during the War of Independence which followed the Hungarian revolution of 1848. The couragious but small army withstood the vigorous attacks for 17 days. Ofen is the German word for Buda, the western part of Budapest. Wasa Stoikovics is also mentioned to command the Theiszer Kron- und Gross-Kikindaer-Districts-Freiwilligen-Battalion in Italy in 1859. The order of the Iron Crown originally was a Napoleonic order, but was reestablished as an Austrian Order of the same name after the fall of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1815. H191

        Atlas d'anatomie pathologique. Texte par M. Lancereaux. Atlas par le Dr. Lancereaux et M. Lackerbauer. (2 volumes).

      Paris, Victor Masson et Fils, 1871 - Paris, Victor Masson et Fils, 1871; 2 volumes in-4 : 1 vol. de texte in-4 (265 x 183 mm), XI, 552 pp., 51 figures dans le texte et 1 atlas in-4 (268 x 190 mm), (4) pp., 60 planches accompagnées chacune d'un feuillet explicatif, (3) ff ; (table) ; demi-chagrin à coins rouge de l'époque, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, quelques traces de frottement, une coiffe supérieure endommagée, quelques rousseurs, très bon état. Seule édition, assez rare. Le but des auteurs était de proposer un atlas d'anatomie pathologique plus pratique et moins onéreux que ceux de Cruveilhier et de Lebert. Le but de Lancereaux était aussi de fournir une étude actualisée et, bien que concise, la plus complète possible, avec l'aspect macroscopique et histologique des lésions, la corrélation anatomo-clinique, des notions étiologiques et pathogéniques, et le diagnostic différentiel. Le volume de texte comporte l'étude des principales lésions, classées par appareil et par organe. Lancereaux expose les observations anatomo-cliniques correspondant aux lésions illustrées sur les planches de l'atlas. Cet atlas comporte 60 planches lithographiées en couleurs par Lackerbauer, avec plusieurs figures par planches, illustrant fidèlement les lésions macroscopiques et histologiques. Cet ouvrage fut très bien accueilli ; il fit l'objet de longues et élogieuses analyses dans les principales revues médicales françaises, et il fut traduit en anglais en 1880. Il fut couronné à la fois par l'Institut (Prix Monthyon, 1872) et par la Faculté de médecine (Prix Châteauvillard, 1874). Certaines observations sont novatrices ou ont été remarquées (cf. références ci-dessous). Etienne Lancereaux (1829-1910) devint médecin des hôpitaux et professeur agrégé de médecine à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. Il fut membre de l'Académie de médecine (président en 1903). C'était un adepte de la méthode anatomo-clinique. Il n'obtint pas la chaire d'anatomie pathologique qu'il souhaitait et qui fut attribuée à Charcot, infiniment moins expérimenté que lui en histopathologie. Charles Robin, titulaire de la chaire d'histologie, n'hésita pas à affirmer : "Il n'y a que cette brute de Lancereaux qui sache l'anatomie pathologique, nous allons nommer Charcot qui n'y connait rien." Peter Lackerbauer (1823-1872) fut un illustrateur scientifique et médical très renommé. Il avait déjà dessiné les planches du traité danatomie pathologique de Lebert.
