Frantiek Kupka, dit François Kupka, né à Opo no, Bohême orientale, le 23 septembre 1871 et mort à Puteaux, Hauts-de-Seine, le 24 juin 1957, est un peintre tchèque comptant parmi les pères de l'abstraction avec Vassili Kandinsky, Gino Severini, Piet Mondrian, Kasimir Malevitch et Robert Delaunay.Durant les quatre-vingt-cinq années de sa vie, il aura vu de nombreux bouleversements de l'art, du symbolisme au pop art, en passant par l'impressionnisme, le cubisme, et bien sûr l'art abstrait, mais il aura toujours voulu garder son indépendance, sa liberté par rapport à tous les grand -ismes de l'Art. Bien qu'il soit un pionnier de l'abstraction, il refusera toujours l'appellation d'artiste abstrait, et s'en expliquera ainsi : « Ma peinture, abstraite ? Pourquoi ? La peinture est concrète : couleur, formes, dynamiques. Ce qui compte, c'est l'invention. On doit inventer et puis construire. » Merci de nous contacter à l'avance si vous souhaitez consulter une référence au sein de notre librairie.

      Lee, Shepard and Dillingham, Boston 1871 - (viii), 244 pages; Clean and secure in original green cloth binding with gilt lettering and gilt image of a baseball and a baseball bat at spine. Faint inscription in pencil on first blank "S.F. Sweetser / from / M. Warren" An attractive example of this scarce baseball novel.

        The First Flight. (All plain sailing)

      London: J. McQueen, 1871. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by William Summers. Second issue of this fine print (first published 21 October 1867) from the 'McQueen's Steeple Chasings' series.A charming period piece. Very much of its time, all the animation in this plate is reserved for the spectators. The jockeys are depicted as completely impassive "there is more animation in a Sovereign's Escort of Life Guards trotting down the Mall on a wet morning than can be found in... Summers' engraving of these supposedly thrilling scenes" (Charles Lane Sporting Aquatints and their Engravers , vol.II, p.76). Lane presents this as a fault, but it is also what gives this image its charm, everything is beautifully observed, and the aquatinting is technically excellent, the landscape is finely realised and the crowd is full of incident but at the centre of the scene are these almost surreal figures passing through as if in a dream. Little is known of either Neville (Lane lists this and one other racing plate by him), or the engraver William Summers.Lane British Racing Prints p.143.

        Pianta del Palazzo Peretti alla Terme Diocleziane, restaurato, nelle pitture, per ordini di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Principe Don Camillo Massimo. Dall’Artisto Cav. Prof. Annibale Angelini; 1871 e 1872

      - Oblong folio (350 x 450 mm). With 32 watercolors of high quality by Annibale Angelini delineated from the original frescos. Original red pebbled cloth (shaken), upper cover with the crowned monograph of Prince Camillo IX (Vittorio Emanuele) Massimo. In excellent unrestored state. An important discovery. This album of watercolors is the only surviving record of the once spectacular frescos and interiors of the elegant garden Casino Felice of the Villa Peretti Montalto alle Terme (later known as the Villa Massimo), built for Sixtus V by famed Roman architect Domenico Fontana. After centuries of neglect, the Villa, its two palaces, and its lush gardens were destroyed in the 1880s in order to make way for the central railroad station in Rome, the Roma Termini. The long-lost frescos of the Casino Felice are of the greatest interest to scholars of Renaissance Italian art: among the artists were C. Nebbia, F. Rosselli, D. Cresti (called il Passignano), G.P. Severo, L. Mainardi and G. Stella. All iconographic depictions of the these frescos survive only in the present album of watercolors. Situated on the highest point in Rome (on the Esquiline Hill overlooking the Diocletian Baths), the Villa Peretti Montalto was the palatial home of Cardinal Montalto Felice Peretti (b. 1521) who became Pope Sixtus V in 1585. Construction of the Villa and gardens continued unabatedly until the Pope died in 1590. The 160-acre Villa became the largest and most luxurious ever built within the Aurelian walls. The Pope’s ambitions knew no bounds. In order to provide fresh water for the palace and its vast gardens, fish ponds, fountains, fruit trees, and cypresses, Sixtus commissioned Fontana’s brother Giovanni to engineer and build an aqueduct fifteen miles long (!) which came to be known as the Acqua Felice. Despite the tragic destruction of the Villa, and the complete lack of documentation of its art and architecture, the present manuscript allows us, for the first time since the 19th-century, to study and partially reconstruct the pictorial decoration of the interiors of the Casino Felice. The existence of the present manuscript was discovered by Patrizia Tosini in the archives of the Massimo family, but the manuscript itself was presumed lost (Tosini, 2015). The Villa Peretti Montalto had two palaces. The Casino Felice, the favored residence of Sixtus and the subject of the present manuscript, was built first (1578-1581), while Peretti was still a Cardinal. Then, as Pope, he authorized his sister Camilla Peretti to build the Palazzo alle Terme (1586-1588). The Casino Felice was situated on an elevated place in the gardens, and consisted of three floors. Although it was the smaller of the two palaces, it was more secluded, and Sixtus preferred to stay there according to Fontana.The present manuscript was created by Annibale Angelini in 1871-1872 for the then owner of the Villa Peretti Montalto, Prince Camillo IX (Vittorio Emanuele) Massimo (1803-1874). Angelini (1810-1884) was Prof. de Geometria, Propet. et Ottica nell'Accad. di S. Luca (Perugia). It was his intent to "restore" the Casino Felice, but as we can see from his watercolors in the present album, this would have taken years. Angelini’s patron, Vittorio Emanuele Massimo, died the following year and the project was abandoned. By 1888 the Casino Felice was completely destroyed. Vittorio Emanuele had long been interested in the history of his beloved Villa; in 1836 he published the single most important monograph on its history, the Notizie istoriche della villa Massimo alle Terme Diocleziane. The text describes the layout of the Casino Felice in some detail, and a floor-plan of the 1st floor was given (plate V, p. 137), but no illustrations of the frescos or interior decorations have ever been published. Based on solely on Massimo’s descriptive text, a theoretical reconstruction of the interiors of the Casino Felice was proposed by Sigrid Epp and Rita Torchetti, who in addition offer a possible [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1871. 1 p. in ink, on recto of half lettersheet (126 x 183 mm). Oversize cloth folding case. The eminent chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur writes to an unidentified recipient, addressed simply as "Monsieur", requesting some changes in an unspecified manuscript (evidently of a partially biographical nature). "Monsieur, Je vous serais obligé d'accepter toutes ces corrections qui ne changent rien à la force de vos arguments, mais qui en diminuent le ton un peu irrité. Surtout ne dites pas: 'puisque M. Pasteur n'a jamais voulu prendre un brevet'. C'est une erreur. J'en avais pris un et même je m'étais occupé de la btion [?] en vue d'y trouver un gagne-pain pour ma famille, après la guerre, pendant la commune, à un moment où l'effondrement de notre chère France paraissait irrémédiable". - With a two word insertion, and several words at the conclusion inked through. - Very faint creasing at corners, tiny pinhole touching descender of one letter, otherwise very good.

        Journal of the Legislative Council of Prince Edward Island, Anno Tricesimo Quarto Victoriae Riginae, First Session of the Twenty Fourth General Assembly

      E. Reilly & Co., Herald Office, Prince Street, Charlottetown [PEI] 1871 - 359 pages; Tan library buckram, spine with full-length dark leather label lettered in gilt; marbled endpapers and text-block edges. With the engraved bookplate of the U. S. Department of State, paper library label mounted to the base of the spine, small oval State Department accession stamp on the verso of the title page, card pocket mounted to the rear paste-down endpaper; red ink Surplus-Duplicate stamp on the front free endpaper (certifying that this copy is properly de-accessioned from government ownership). This volume is clean and well preserved, with other library marks than those mentioned above -- (no perforations, stamps in the interior, etc.) There are a few pencil notes, and marks, but these are highly interesting and suggest that this copy had a particularly interesting role in the history of its time -- the final years during which Prince Edward Island was still resisting pressure to join the new Dominion of Canada. The residents of Prince Edward Island may have been isolated by maritime geography, but they were united in taking pride in their Island and its legislative independence from 1851 onward. Even so, with the Charlottetown Conference of 1864, PEI had been the site of the first meeting which eventually led to the eventual adoption of the Articles of Confederation and the creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867, making the Island in some respects the birthplace of the idea of Canada. Despite this founding status, Prince Edward Islanders did not find the terms of union with Canada favorable in 1867, and its legislature choose to remain a part of Great Britain and Ireland at that time. The reasons were mostly economic. PEI was wholly dependent on agriculture and fisheries, with products exported mostly to the United States of America and Europe and the UK. Canada had a similar profile, mostly devoted to agriculture, and with ample fisheries of its own. Locals feared that entering the newly-created Canada's complex structure of tariffs and regulations would force islanders to purchase all the goods they needed from Canada, send their taxes to that Dominion's government. But, on the other hand, the economic realities of their size and relative isolation, along with the Dominion's regulatory structure, would offer them almost nothing in return. PEI was relatively densely populated; the island, virtually without minerals, had to support a population of about 90,000. The unique complications of the ownership of the limited amount of land was also a factor. Under the historic land grants from the Crown, nearly the whole Island was owned by absentee proprietors who had no willingness to sell land to their tenants, the actual residents of the Island. The new Canadian Dominion government certainly wanted to add PEI to its Dominion. And for various reasons, the British Crown also wanted PEI in the Dominion, if only to uncomplicate their obligations with regard to the defence of their North American territory. The Dominion government sweetened the terms of union to PEI in 1869, but the local legislators still resisted becoming Canadians. A new interested party inserted itself in the discussion in the form of a delegation sent to PEI in 1868 from the Congress of the United States seeking to reistablish trade reciprocity. The heart of the matter was the crucial issue of fisheries. Briefly, after the initial creation of the Dominion of Canada, regulations and tariffs in the ports of Nova Scotia and Halifax had the effect of sending most United States fishing vessels working the waters of the northeast to PEI and Charlottetown, in order to buy and sell their catch, secure provisions (especially fresh water, salt and provisions for the crew) as well as necessary repairs. This vast increase in trade was making various PEI residents rich, and their Canadian neighbors resented this, to say the least. The British Crown issued regulations which closed this advantage to PEI, and this, understandably, proved hightly unpopular. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Most of the slaves are referred to as "mulata" or "criolla" indicating that they are of mixed blood. The contract ends with an agreement that the sellers are no longer liable for the slaves, indicating that any future issues or illnesses are now the responsibility of the new owner. It is signed by both parties, and bears what appears to be the official stamp of the Cuban notary public.

        Les parcs et jardins crées et executés par F. Duvillers. La première partie.

      Paris, chez l’auteur 1871 - Les parcs et jardins crées et executés par F. Duvillers. La première partie. Paris, chez l’auteur, 1871. Folio. (8) + 80p. With 40 engraved plates. Publisher’s cloth-backed printed boards. An impressive record of forty private and public gardens laid out by the author, a Belgian architect and landscape designer. They date from 1838 to 1870, and are in the landscape or ‘paysagiste’ style prevalent in France in the mid-19th century. Formal elements continue to be evident in the lay out of ‘potagers’ and fruit gardens, and in the use of’avenues’ and canals. Extensive notes on planting are provided in the text. Among institutional schemes are those for the Ecole de botanique, Paris, the botanical institution of M. Poiloup at Vaugirard and an innovative garden with pavilions for a ‘Maison de santé des deux sexes’ in the rue de Picpus, Paris; public gardens and parks include the Jardin de l’Etoile intended for’bals, concerts, fêtes publiques, de jour et de nuit’ at Passy, the main square and public gardens in the town of Koutaïs in the Caucasus (modern Kutaisi in Georgia) and gardens with a promenade for the town of Montélimart. Among private patrons are Salomon de Rothschild (park at Suresnes) and Baron d’Herlincourt (Château de Belan-sur-Ource). Noticeable during this period is the more functional organisation of land layout. A second volume was published in 1878. Dedicated to Leopold II, king of the Belgians; some ten heads of state subscribed to its publication. A well preserved copy, the binding carefully restored. See Racine, Boursier-Mougenot & Binet, The Gardens of Provence and the French Riviera 1987, p305 (this volume only referred to). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
