        THE PHOTOGRAPHIC WORLD

      Philadelphia: Benerman & Wilson, 1872. First editions. 4tos., variable paginations, each issue calls for a mounted photographic plate which is missing in 4 issues: Vol. 1, No. 7; Vol. 2, Nos.14, 15, 16. Decorated stiff wrappers. 2 volumes (23 issues). Each volume is housed in a newly-made clamshell box. Volume 2 is lacking Issue No. 23. One issue with a replacement front wrapper; the front wrapper is detached on three issues, and a few issues have chips or tears to the wrappers; the others, with a few exceptions, are very good and mostly unopened. Issue No. 21, September 1872 contains an albumen portrait of George Armstrong Custer in buckskin and red kerchief by James A. Scholten. Between 1864 and 1870, THE PHOTOGRAPHIC WORLD, edited by Edward L. Wilson, was published as supplement to THE PHILADELPHIA PHOTOGRAPHER. It became an independent journal in 1871, and was absorbed in January 1873 with THE PHILADELPHIA PHOTOGRAPHER. The year 1871 is designated as Volume 1. The original photographs were made by G.W. Wilson, F. Grasshoff, Suddards & Fennemore, T.T. Sweeney, Wm. Kurtz, Jones & Stiff, Dinmore & Wilson, E. M. Klinedinst, J. A. Scholten, J. Landy, et al. A complete run, save the missing Issue 23 of November 1872. Appended to each issue is THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES. Edited by Edward Wilson and published by Scovil Manufacturing Company, New York. The paginations vary and the numbering sequence extends that of THE PHOTOGRAPHIC WORLD. The publishing history is rather complicated and obscure for this serial. Walter Koelzer, in Photographic and Cinematographic Periodicals No. 18700 states, "Between 1864 and 1870 published as a supplement of THE PHILADELPHIA PHOTOGRAPHER. Became and independent journal between 1871 - 1872, and merged finally in January 1873 with THE PHILADELPHIA PHOTOGRAPHER. 1871 is called Volume 1"

        LES EVANGILES DES DIMANCHES ET FETES DE L'ANNÉE Three Volumes (Royal Presentation Copy); PRESENTATION COPY inscribed and signed by Queen Margherita of Savoy, Queen-Consort of Umberto I, of the Kingdom of Italy, dated 1884

      Bachelin - Deflorenne, Paris, France 1872 - IN FRENCH. Three magnificent quartos, measuring 11 3/8" x 8 3/4". contemporary brown tooled morocco, sectioned and ruled in blind, five raised hubs (six compartments), gilt edge, royal blue watered silk doublures. Elaborate gilt dentelles to insides of front pastedowns.Signed presentation copy on fly-leaf of first volume (dated 1888) from Queen Margherita, Queen-Consort of (her first cousin) Umberto I, King of Italy, who reigned from 1878-1900. The first and second volumes comprise the text of the Gospels ornamentally printed with brilliant and beautiful borders, and enriched with exquisite illuminated miniatures, which were select pages from celebrated manuscripts throughout Europe, ranging from the tenth to the sixteenth century, in brilliantly colored and gilded facsimile. The third volume is the Appendices. Some scattered foxing to part of this third (Appendices) volume, and minor rippling to the section with pasted-on photographs, and to a thirteen-page section of Volume I, -- certainly neither obtrusive nor image-compromising.Superbly colored by means of Henri Leon Curmer's pioneering chromolithographic technique which involved first photographing, then hand-coloring these powerful and storied images. Actual copies of nearly 80 miniature photographs of his engravings (lacking three) are affixed to pages of Volume III, and opposite, on the recto, a poem, or (frequently) a biblical quote. This Third volume is dated 1864, and features illustrative texts describing each manuscript, correlating them by page number to their place in the first two volumes, and in-depth articles about these famous illuminators, materials used etc., for Curmer was a true scholar and master of the lithographic arts. Curmer also gives his nod of gratitude in this third volume by listing all of his subscribers to this magnificent and brilliantly executed creation, including their name, title, country of origin, subscriber number, how many sets ordered, etc. At the end of the volume (III) are copies of Jost Amman's "Eygentliche Beschreibung aller Stände auff Erden", followed by Hans Holbein's 41 starkly stunning images comprising his (1538) Dance of Death woodcut series. Finally d'Aligny's copies of Simon Vostre's marginals (the key term "marginal" emphasizing little relation of these bordering miniatures, to the heart and soul of the book in which they appeared). This 1872 printing of the first two volumes was published posthumously by the firm of Bachelin-Deflorenne of London, a branch of the Paris concern, which purchased Curmer's "whole stock and copyright of his principle publications in Chromo-lithography" (The Athenaeum No. 2217, Apr. 23, 1870) from the widow Mrs. Curmer. The Athenaeum went on to say: "These Chromo-Lithographs.are undoubtedly the richest and finest of the kind ever published". The work was thusly advertised in The May 2nd, 1870 issue of THE BOOKSELLER, (then "the" magazine of the bookselling trade -- published in London since 1802): "Two Vols, 4to. Bound in morocco, rich gilt ornaments on sides, gilt edges.This most magnificent work is illustrated with a great number of Miniatures, printed in gold and colors, reproducing the finest paintings of celebrated manuscripts, viz: Le Lilvre d'Heures du Cardinal Grimani, les Heures de Bedford, &c., and numerous Borders, all in Chromo-Lithography, forming a kind of Encyclopaedia of the art of Miniatures during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It is, besides, illustrated with a great number of Wood-engravings, &c., after Wiercx, and other artists." The cost then, for a comparable publisher's copy in 1870, with the optional morocco, with case, was £36, which converts to around $3107 ($4180) in today's currently); the book was enormously costly to create.

        Kashi naika tekiyo [trans.: Essentials of the Principles and Practice of Medicine]

      Some woodcuts in the text. 22 vols. Small 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. [Japan]: 1872-75. First edition in Japanese of one of the two most important medical works by Henry Hartshorne, his Essentials of the Principles and Practice of Medicine (1st ed.: Philadelphia, 1867). Hartshorne (1823-97), a Quaker, took his medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania and was active during the cholera epidemic in Philadelphia in 1849. He later served as a field surgeon during the battle of Gettysburg. He held various professorships, including one at the University of Pennsylvania, and was active in women's rights, American Indian rights, education, public health, and philanthropy. Hartshorne was highly esteemed in Japan and his two most important books - the other being A Conspectus of the Medical Sciences (1869) - were promptly translated into Japanese. In 1893, he moved with one of his daughters to Japan and was active in missionary work. He also made notable efforts to prevent the traffic in opium. The translator was Kohei Kawada (1836-1905), a physician and author of several medical books. He held several high medical posts in the Japanese government's medical institute. This is a complete set in twenty-two volumes. Complete sets in nice condition are rare. Fine set. &#10087; D.A.B., IV, pp. 368-69.

A detailed map of the state of Victoria. At the time of printing, Victoria was a relatively new colony, established in 1851. The discovery of gold near Ballarat and Bendigo a few months later set off one of the largest gold rushes in history, as settlers poured in to seek their fortunes. The map reflects the colony?Äôs source of population and wealth, showing how settlements cluster around the gold fields.The map was commissioned and overseen by Alexander Skene and the Hon. J. J. Casey. Alexander Skene was a Scottish surveyor who had a prominent role in land distribution and regulation in Australia. The Hon. J. J. Casey was the Commissioner for Victoria at the time, a colourful figure who went on to become Minister for Justice. A contemporary newspaper reports in 1878 that Casey had complained that someone without a title had preceded him into dinner at the Paris Exposition Universelle, and had told the Prince of Wales himself that Victoria should be given more land. While his manner may have been distasteful, Casey?Äôs claim was built on a solid foundation. Gold exports from Victoria enabled Britain to clear all foreign debts by the end of the century, and the explosion in population, particularly in Melbourne, meant that it was one of the most successful new colonies. However, the growth in population also initiated demands for agricultural and political reform, policies aided by the accurate surveying and mapping of Victoria, and the ultimate aim of this map.We could trace only two institutional copies of this edition, in the National Library of Australia and Cambridge University Library. 1310 by 1990mm. (51.5 by 78.25 inches). NLA MAP RM 1945.

        LES EVANGILES DES DIMANCHES ET FETES DE L'ANNÉE Three Volumes (Royal Presentation Copy); PRESENTATION COPY inscribed and signed by Queen Margherita of Savoy, Queen-Consort of Umberto I, of the Kingdom of Italy, dated 1884

      Paris, France: Bachelin - Deflorenne, 1872. Second Edition. Leather_bound. Very Good. Henri Leon Curmier. IN FRENCH. Three magnificent quartos, measuring 11 3/8" x 8 3/4". contemporary brown tooled morocco, sectioned and ruled in blind, five raised hubs (six compartments), gilt edge, royal blue watered silk doublures. Elaborate gilt dentelles to insides of front pastedowns.Signed presentation copy on fly-leaf of first volume (dated 1888) from Queen Margherita, Queen-Consort of (her first cousin) Umberto I, King of Italy, who reigned from 1878-1900. The first and second volumes comprise the text of the Gospels ornamentally printed with brilliant and beautiful borders, and enriched with exquisite illuminated miniatures, which were select pages from celebrated manuscripts throughout Europe, ranging from the tenth to the sixteenth century, in brilliantly colored and gilded facsimile. The third volume is the Appendices. Some scattered foxing to part of this third (Appendices) volume, and minor rippling to the section with pasted-on photographs, and to a thirteen-page section of Volume I, -- certainly neither obtrusive nor image-compromising. Superbly colored by means of Henri Leon Curmer's pioneering chromolithographic technique which involved first photographing, then hand-coloring these powerful and storied images. Actual copies of nearly 80 miniature photographs of his engravings (lacking three) are affixed to pages of Volume III, and opposite, on the recto, a poem, or (frequently) a biblical quote. This Third volume is dated 1864, and features illustrative texts describing each manuscript, correlating them by page number to their place in the first two volumes, and in-depth articles about these famous illuminators, materials used etc., for Curmer was a true scholar and master of the lithographic arts. Curmer also gives his nod of gratitude in this third volume by listing all of his subscribers to this magnificent and brilliantly executed creation, including their name, title, country of origin, subscriber number, how many sets ordered, etc. At the end of the volume (III) are copies of Jost Amman's "Eygentliche Beschreibung aller Stände auff Erden", followed by Hans Holbein's 41 starkly stunning images comprising his (1538) Dance of Death woodcut series. Finally d'Aligny's copies of Simon Vostre's marginals (the key term "marginal" emphasizing little relation of these bordering miniatures, to the heart and soul of the book in which they appeared). This 1872 printing of the first two volumes was published posthumously by the firm of Bachelin-Deflorenne of London, a branch of the Paris concern, which purchased Curmer's "whole stock and copyright of his principle publications in Chromo-lithography" (The Athenaeum No. 2217, Apr. 23, 1870) from the widow Mrs. Curmer. The Athenaeum went on to say: "These Chromo-Lithographs...are undoubtedly the richest and finest of the kind ever published". The work was thusly advertised in The May 2nd, 1870 issue of THE BOOKSELLER, (then "the" magazine of the bookselling trade -- published in London since 1802): "Two Vols, 4to. Bound in morocco, rich gilt ornaments on sides, gilt edges...This most magnificent work is illustrated with a great number of Miniatures, printed in gold and colors, reproducing the finest paintings of celebrated manuscripts, viz: Le Lilvre d'Heures du Cardinal Grimani, les Heures de Bedford, &c., and numerous Borders, all in Chromo-Lithography, forming a kind of Encyclopaedia of the art of Miniatures during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It is, besides, illustrated with a great number of Wood-engravings, &c., after Wiercx, and other artists." The cost then, for a comparable publisher's copy in 1870, with the optional morocco, with case, was £36, which converts to around $3107 ($4180) in today's currently); the book was enormously costly to create.

        Création dun centre mondial de communication par Hendrik Christian Andersen (2 Bände in einem Band), IN FRANZÖSISCHER SPRACHE

      Der Titel in rot-schwarz gedruckt und mit einer Vignette, auf der Rückseite mit einem Widmungsblatt mit einer Heliogravüre (Lichtdruck), mit 25 Heliogravüren (Lichtdrucken) auf Tafeln (9 doppelblattgroß und 5 doppelblattgroß zum Ausklappen), einschließlich der nicht im Inhaltsverzeichnis genannten Tafel:"A World Centre" zu Beginn des 1. Teils, mit 123 Heliogravüren (Lichtdrucken) im Text (9 ganzseitig), einschließlich der nicht im Inhaltsverzeichnis genannten von Athene, Apollo und Herakles, [6], xv, 128 (unpaginiert), 102 Seiten, 32x45, grünes illustriertes und goldgeprägtes O Ln, Schönes, im Einband frisches und festes unbeschnittenes Exemplar dieses seltenen und sehr gesuchten Titels, lediglich innen teilweise braunfleckig. Erste französische Ausgabe von Andersens Vision einer utopischen Weltstadt. FIRST FRENCH EDITION OF ANDERSENS VISION OF A UTOPIAN WORLD CITY. Hendrik Christian Andersen (1872 - 1940) was a Norwegian-American sculptor, painter and urban planner. He was born in Bergen, Norway, and emigrated as an infant with his family to Newport, Rhode Island. As a young artist, he mingled among Newports wealthy elite, and spent some time as Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitneys art teacher. At the age of 21, Andersen travelled to Europe, eventually settling in Rome. There he pursued his artistic interest in monumental classically inspired pieces, believing that they stimulated in the viewer a desire for self-improvement. He devoted much of his time designing a perfect World City, filled with art, which would motivate humanity to achieve a near Utopian state. His urban planning philosophy is evident in his 1913 "A World Center of Communication". This enormous tome (the text weighed over ten pounds) was written with Ernest Hébrard and grew out of Andersens earlier writing, "The Fountain of Life". Central to the work was Andersens belief that art, more specifically monumental Beaux-Arts architecture, could bring about world peace and international harmony. The plan called for the creation of a central world capital. In his words, the city would be "a fountain of overflowing knowledge to be fed by the whole world of human endeavour in art, science, religion, commerce, industry, and law and in turn to diffuse throughout the whole of humanity as though it were one grand, divine body conceived by God, the vital requirements which would renew its strength, protect its rights, and enable it to attain greater heights through a concentration of world effort.Evident in the treatise is Andersens philosophy that art could change humanity and produce perfection. While roundly criticized by urban planners of the time for its political naïveté coupled with an over emphasis on the monumental, the work demonstrates an appreciation of the political and social conflicts necessitated by the rampant nationalism of the early 20th Century and sought to use art to bring about an Utopian world. Andersens view of the power of art and architecture to transform society can be seen as a precursor to similar concepts advanced later in the 20th Century by a variety of urban planners including Le Corbusier in his Contemporary City.In 1899 Andersen met Henry James the American expatriate writer. Although James was almost 30 years his senior the two developed a close relationship that was to last until James death in 1916. While the precise nature of the relationship is still unclear and may always be sothe two actually met on just a few occasions, and then for only brief periods of timethey exchanged numerous letters, which evidence a close, loving, homoerotic bond. Despite such affection, James lost patience with Andersen when the sculptor tried to interest him in the grandiose plans for the "World City". James warned Andersen that he was slipping into megalomania with his plans for the "World City". Andersen bequeathed his home, studio, papers and more than 400 pieces of his work to the Italian Government. The home in Rome has been renovated and now is the museum Museo Hendrik Christian Andersen located at Via Pasquale Stanislao Mancini, 20 (piazzale Flaminio).The book is in two parts. The first deals with the history of the city and monumental architecture, and seeks inspiration in classical and contemporary notions of city planning - Paris and Washington DC feature prominently. The second part details Andersens imaginary urban landscape, complete with works of art, for the World City. Olympic stadia, galleries for the arts and sciences, as well as government buildings are all outlined, and placed upon a defined grid plan with an emphasis on a grand central avenue acting as the axis of the city.

OBrosch. 24x16 cm. - KEIN REPRINT! -- unbeschnittenes Exemplar, Ebd. fleckig, Buchrücken beschädigt, S. papierbedingt gebräunt, Klammerung gerostet, Bindung locker. -- Mehmed Talât, bekannt als Talât Bey oder Talât Pascha (* Juli 1872 in Kardschali/Provinz Edirne, heute in Bulgarien 15. März 1921 in Berlin), war Innenminister und Großwesir des Osmanischen Reichs und Führer der Jungtürken. Talât ordnete als Innenminister am 24. April 1915 die Verhaftung armenischer Intellektueller in Istanbul an, was den Völkermord an der armenischen Bevölkerung im Osmanischen Reich einleitete. Talât entstammte kleinen Verhältnissen und repräsentierte eine soziale Aufsteigerschicht, die mit der Jungtürkischen Revolution von 1908 im Osmanischen Reich an die Macht gelangte. Talât Pascha war Freimaurer und als solcher erster Großmeister der Großloge der Freien und Angenommenen Maurer der Türkei. Er war pomakischer Muslim und entstammte einer Bektaschi-Familie. Talât Pascha lebte vom 10. November 1918 bis zu seinem gewaltsamen Tod unter dem Namen Ali Sai in Berlin. Ein deutsches U-Boot brachte Talât, Enver, Cemal Pascha, Doktor Nazim, Bahaettin S,akir und Cemal Azmi in der Nacht vom 2. auf den 3. November 1918 nach Odessa. Am 15. März 1921 erschoss Soghomon Tehlirian Talat Pascha in der Hardenbergstraße in der Nähe seiner Wohnung. Tehlirian war Mitglied des geheimen armenischen Kommandos Operation Nemesis, das die Täter des Genozids an den Armeniern verfolgte und tötete. Er wurde im folgenden Mord-Prozess vom Vorwurf eines Tötungsdeliktes freigesprochen. Talats sterbliche Überreste wurden am 25. Februar 1943 durch das Hitlerregime unter militärischen Ehrenbezeugungen von Berlin nach Istanbul überführt und dort am Abide-i Hürriyet, dem Denkmal der jungtürkischen Revolution von 1908, beigesetzt.
