        Meriyasu orikata [trans.: Technique of Manufacturing Jersey].

      Many woodcut illus. in the text. 35 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: 1873. First edition in Japanese of what seems to be a translation of Illustrated Instructions of Setting up and Running the Bickford Family Knitting Machine (eds.: 1868 & 1872). The "Dana Bickford Family Knitter," manufactured in Brattleboro, Vermont, was a small knitting machine which could be operated by women. The text was translated by Shigeki Nishimura (1828-1902), an educator and leader of the Meiji Enlightenment in Meiji period Japan. The text describes how to operate the machinery and the illustrations depict the machine, its parts, and the variations of woven fabrics. The final leaf provides a list of Japanese manufacturers of jersey. This is the first book on manufacturing jersey to be published in Japan and marks the beginnings of an industry which became very important to the economic success of the country. Fine copy. WorldCat locates only the National Diet Library copy. .

        [Little Egret] Herodias Garzetta

      [London: by the Author, 1873. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.Wolf and H.C.Richter, printed by Walter. A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood) Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his Preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case; every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 261.

Exceptionnel ensemble jalonnant des derniers chapitre de la vie de l’explorateur. Nous le trouvons à Phnom Pen, déclinant une invitation à découvrir Angkor, trop investi dans son travail et jugeant prématuré, pour lui, cette expérience. Il apprend nuit et jour le pali et prépare une grammaire comparée indochinoise, livrant quelques trouvailles avec exaltation. Il exprime enfin son désir de faire partie d’une "Société asiatique ? ou orientale ? ou bien ??? qui puisse me preter son influence et m’ouvrir son bulletin [.] L’administration locale n’a pas assez de suite dans les idées pour que je puisse aller au bout sans publier quelque mémoire ou travaux partiels de nature à prouver ici que je fait oeuvre utile". Depuis Hong-Kong, l’année suivante, à bord de l’Hooghly, il annonce à sa mère la naissance de sa deuxième fille Marguerite Georgette (car le parrain, par tradition le commandant de bord, se prénomme Georges). "De toutes mes aventures de voyage, celle-ci est bien la plus singulière". Installé à Shangaï avec les siens, il s’inquiète de l’accueil public de son "Voyage en Indochine" et donne des instructions pour la publication en feuilleton de ces prochaines notes de voyages (il veut 20 centimes la ligne). Récit de campagne de guerre, ou exploration scientifique du Tibet, les négociations en cours avec la Chine en déciderons. Garnier est dans l’incertitude et la gène financière.Les affaires reprennent 2 mois plus tard. Il est officiellement accrédité pour une mission scientifique, en réalité politique, au Tibet. Il s’agit en fait de contrecarrer les "intrigues anglaises en faveur des mahométants". Garnier donne ses instructions parisiennes tout azimut. Il à enfin reçu son livre. A propos de Delaporte (préfacier) : "L’Amiral le placera sous mes ordres dans le cas ou nous nous rencontrerons au Yu-Nan. S’il trouve que j’ai fait bien de la misère aux membres de la commission du Mekong, qui sans moi n’aurait jamais rien produit. que va-t-il dire du paradis que je lui ménage !" Il reçoit aussi l’appel de Dupré lui offrant une situation, "à designer moi-même", en Cochinchine.Depuis la citadelle de Hanoï, voici l’original du premier ordre, sur une feuille à en-tête, barré, du Cabinet du Gouverneur, qu’il adresse au corps expéditionnaire : "Marins et soldats, En vous envoyant au Tong-King sauvegarder les intérêts de la civilisation et de la France, l'amiral gouverneur vous a fait une faveur et donné une preuve de confiance. Vous méritez l'une, vous justifierez l'autre." Une septieme lettre, non signée et de toute apparence reportée par un tiers à la main, est adressée à son compagon Luro, administrateur des affaires indigènes à Saïgon, il lui fait le récit des évennements : ". J’expédie en bloc tous les hauts fonctionnaires du pays à Saigon pour qu’ils ne se croient pas obligé de soulever les populations contre moi et je reste toujours avec ma province sur les bras" et l’appel à lui : "Avec toi, tout marche comme sur des roulettes, mais vrai ! je ne peux pas tout faire. Je n’ai pas le temps de t’expliquer le pourquoi du comment. Dis à Philastre que je n’ai pas tort et que j’ai tendu aux Annamites la perche le plus longtemps possible. Je la leur tends encore, s’ils veulent de ma convention commerciale puisque je dis que je rendrai Hanoi au roi dans ce cas, ce qui fait hésiter encore beaucoup de gens qui sans cela se rallieraient à moi. Ou il ne fallait pas m’envoyer, ou je ne pouvais agir autrement. Viens, viens, viens, il y a beaucoup, beaucoup à faire ici [.} Ouf ! Voila ma 3° nuit. Adieu ou plutôt au revoir" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Patinage á roulette, roller skating - Jack Abeillé.

      Gewassen tekening met waterverf, kleurkrijt en dekwit op velijnpapier door Jack Abeillé (1873 Varenne-Saint-Hilaire), getiteld "Salade de Saison / Le sport de la mode: Voulez-vous ruiker (?) mademoiselle?"' Gesigneerd en gedateerd (19)09 rechtonder. Formaat ca. 32,5 x 24 cm.Deze tekening komt uit de verzameling van Charlotte von Prybram-Gladona.Charlotte, habituée van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te München en trouwde op vierentwintigjarige leeftijd met de Weense edelman Albin von Prybram-Gladona. De echtelieden ontmoetten elkaar tijdens de danslessen die Albin, twintig jaar ouder dan Charlotte, nam om fit te blijven (!). Zijn familie onderhield nauwe banden met Einstein, Schweitzer, Rilke en Thomas Mann, terwijl hij Johannes Brahms kende als 'Onkel Jo'.Toen Charlotte en Albin vlak voor het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog verhuisden naar Parijs, verkochten zij noodgedwongen het leeuwendeel van hun meubelcollectie. Dat stelde hen echter wel in staat zich over te geven aan hun passie voor tekeningen, die beduidend minder plaats innamen. Het echtpaar keerde in 1969 terug naar Oostenrijk en vestigde zich in Salzburg. Albin overleed vijf jaar later, terwijl Charlotte er de hoge leeftijd van 92 bereikte.Prijs: € 600,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        L'ILLUSTRAZIONE ITALIANA - Dal n. 1 del 14 dicembre 1873 al n 12 del dicembre 1962 - TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO - 150 VOLUMI IN RILEGATURA RAFFINATA ED ELEGANTISSIMA PELLE ROSSA CON TITOLI IN ORO E FREGI - NON MANCA ALCUN NUMERO DELLE 120.000 PAGINE TOTALI, Milano, Treves poii Garzanti, 1873

      Questa prestigiosa e documentatissima rivista, autorevole testimone di 90 anni di STORIA E CULTURA ITALIANA, nasce il 14 dicembre 1873 con la testata "NUOVA ILLUSTRAZIONE UNIVERSALE" e conclude questa breve esperienza con il numero del 31 dicembre 1876. Dal numero del gennaio 1877 prende il titolo definitivo de "L'ILLUSTRAZIONE ITALIANA" che viene mantenuto fino al numero 12 del dicembre 1962, quando CESSA LE PUBBLICAZIONI. Fino al 1950 la cadenza era settimanale e dal gennaio 1951 GARZANTI ch aveva sostituito TREVES nel 1939 cambia le frequenze che diventano mensili. Dopo 20 anni - nel 1981 - l'editore GUANDA tenterà una nuova uscita che cocluderà nel 1996 , senza minimamente avvicinare i fasti e la enorme importanza della storica rivista. Mentre LA DOMENICA DEL CORRIERE (1899 - 1989) era letta da una ben definita fascia sociale e considerata la rivista del "POPOLO" con le magistrali copertine del mitico BELTRAME , questa ILLUSTRAZIONE ITALIANA fu notoriamente LA RIVISTA DELLA BORGHESIA E DEL CETO MEDIO - ALTO - graficamente assai curata con carta patinata ed incisioni realizzate con tecniche di avanguardia e di numerosi ed autorevoli scritti con firme importanti e sopratutto immagini (notevolissimo il contenuto iconografico) di avvenimenti, personaggi regnanti ed uomini di stato, vedute, opere d'arte, costruzioni, movimenti culturali. La evoluzione storica italiana qui trovò ampio palcoscenico - spazio ed informazioni - anche con le due guerre mondiali ed il ventennio del regime fascista. Notevole la documentazione di 90 anni di pubblicità con foto ed illustrazioni che costituiscono una ricchissima fonte di studio e di analisi sui fenomeni delle reclams. Il capitolo dei grandi collaboratori scrittori va sottolineato dalla presenza di GIOSUE' CARDUCCI, GRAZIA DELEDDA, LUIGI PIRANDELLO, GIOVANNI VERGA, GABRIELE D'ANNUNZIO ed ancora in epoche più recenti . da EUGENIO MONTALE, ELIO VITTORINI, SALVATORE QUASIMODO, RICCARDO BACCHELLI, ITALO PIETRA, NICCOLO' GIANI, SERGIO SOLMI e tantissimi altri. La libreria Ferraguti è onorata di proporre questa collezione oltre che per i "contenuti" anche e sopratutto per la estrema eleganza delle rilegature e le immagini interne ed esterne. La prestigiosa collezione potrà essere PROTAGONISTA in saloni di FONDAZIONI BANCARIE - STUDI NOTARILI E LEGALI - CENTRI CULTURALI, rappresentando un insieme assolutamente UNICO E RARO PER IL PANORAMA CULTURALE ITALIANO.

        Slave-catching in the Indian Ocean. A record of naval experiences.

      London, Longmans, Green & Co. (colophon: printed by Spottiswoode & Co.), 1873. - 8vo. VIII, (4), 503, (1) pp. With 8 steel-engraved plates including the frontispiece (the 5 signed ones engraved by Pearson) and a folding map of the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and the Gulf, hand-coloured in outline (lithographed by Edward Weller). Red cloth. First edition (only edition until a 1968 facsimile) of a very detailed and well-illustrated account of a British naval campaign to suppress the East African slave trade in the years 1868 to 1870, published only eight years after the end of the United States' Civil War and the abolition of slavery there. Slavery was not outlawed in the Ottoman Empire (which at the time of publication included Egypt and what is now Iraq) until 1882, and in Iran and most of the Gulf States not until the 20th century. The author, Captain Philip Howard Colomb (1831-99), was Commander of the HMS Dryad from 1868 to 1870 and led the campaign. He operated primarily in and around the Gulf, Oman and Zanzibar and captured seven slave ships during those two years. The illustrations show the Dryad and some of the slave ships, individual and group portraits of slaves encountered during the campaign, and views of ports where slave trading occurred. One of the group portraits was engraved after a photograph made by one of the Dryad's officers and other illustrations after drawings by other officers. The map ("The slave trading waters of the Indian Ocean") shows the Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Red Sea and the Gulf, including Madagascar and the other islands. The first chapter relates Colomb's voyage to Aden, where he took command of the Dryad, and the next two chapters provide extensive background information to place the account of the campaign in context. Colomb's account of his own campaign includes chapters on individual regions (Bombay, Muscat and Oman, the Gulf, Madagascar, Zanzibar, etc.) and on various topics (slaves on board ship, the slave market, etc.). Colomb was promoted to Admiral after his retirement from active duty. The book is sometimes mistakenly ascribed to his younger brother, John Charles Ready Colomb. - With very minor foxing in the folding map and the page facing it, but otherwise in fine condition. Garrick, "Indian Ocean, post-exploration", in: Speake, Literature of travel and exploration (2003), pp. 608-610. WorldCat (4 copies). Zeitschrift für Ethnologie 5 (1873), p. 117.

Im Besonderen aufgrund der von ihm visionär gestalteten Landschaftsparks in Muskau und später in Branitz gilt Pückler-Muskau heute als genialer Landschaftskünstler, der in der Umsetzung seiner gestalterischen Konzepte seiner Zeit in mancher Hinsicht voraus war; vor allem seine durch großflächigem Umpflanzungen geschaffenen \"Blickachsen\" gelten als zukunftsweisende Elemente moderner Parkgestaltung. Eine Schwester im Geiste fand der \"Parkomane\" in seiner neun Jahre älteren Ehefrau Lucie von Hardenberg (1776 - 1854), Tochter des preußischen Staatskanzlers und Reformers Karl August von Hardenberg (1750 - 1822), die Pücklers Leidenschaft teilte und rückhaltlos unterstützte. Popularität erlangte Pückler ferner durch seine ausgedehnten Reisen, insbesondere in den Nahen und Mittleren Osten, dessen Kultur und Lebensweise er wie kaum ein anderer Zeitgenosse studierte. Sein Versuch, die Quellen des Nils zu erforschen, führte ihn 1838 bis in den Sudan, bis er südlich von Khartum schwer an Malaria erkrankte und den Rückweg nach Europa antreten mußte. Pückler blieb der morgenländischen Kultur ein Leben lang verbunden, so ließ er sich gern in orientalischer Tracht abbilden. Der zwischenzeitlich nahezu vergessene Pückler ist heute als Landschaftsvisionär, nicht zuletzt aber auch aufgrund seines unkonventionellen, bisweilen als tollkühn bezeichneten Lebenswandels, mit dem er die strenge - oft vorgespiegelte - Sittlichkeit seiner Zeit- und Standesgenossen konterkarierte - so ließ es sich im Einvernehmen mit Lucie von dieser scheiden, um in England eine begüterte neue Ehefrau zur weiteren Finanzierung seiner Landschaftsprojekte zu suchen - , wieder wesentlich stärker in den Blickpunkt des öffentlichen und kulturellen Interesses geraten. Der Fernsehsender Arte widmete ihm am 1. und 9. März 2015 eine einstündige, mit Spielszenen angereicherte Dokumentation. Originalausgaben von Pücklers Briefen, Schriften und Reiseberichten die er unter den Pseudonymen \"Der Verstorbene\" und \"Semilasso\" veröffentlichte, sind heute nur noch selten anzutreffen. Buchrücken etwas aufgehellt, Kapitale und Gelenke partiell etwas berieben; bei Bd. 6 zwei Seiteneinrisse fachmännisch geschlossen.

        Arses Batantae, Sharpe (Large Frilled-necked Flycatcher)

      London 1873 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country&#146;s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, &#147;A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.&#148; For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While in Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented &#147;Birds of Asia&#148;. &#147;The Birds of New Guinea&#148; was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the &#147;The Birds of New Guinea&#148; , and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's &#147;Birds of Paradise&#148; (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the &#147;The Birds of New Guinea&#148;, which, like the &#147;Birds of Asia&#148;, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Arses Batantae, Sharpe, measures 21.5" x 14.5" and is in mint condition. Commonly called Large Frill-necked Flycatcher or Monarch, these birds are expertly hand-colored: the male on the lower leaf in black and white with a blue eye-circle and beak, the female in the middle in black and white, holding a bug, and a juvenile on top with rufous coloring, black face and blue eye ring.

        Lady of the Last Century (Mrs. Elizabeth Montagu): A

A Lady of the Last Century (Mrs. Elizabeth Montagu): Illustrated in her unpublished letters; collected and arranged, with a biographical sketch, and a chapter on Blue Stockings. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1873. First edition. Extra Illustrated with forty-eight engraved plates (many mounted to size). Octavo (8 9/16 x 5 1/2 inches; 217 x138 mm.) . xvi, 372 pp. Bound by Morrell (stamp-signed on verso of front end-paper) ca. 1880 in three quarter dark blue crushed levant morocco over blue marbled boards ruled in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. A fine copy.The extra-illustrations include engraved portraits of Elizabeth Montagu, Queen Elizabeth I, David Garrick, George Montagu, Edmund Burke, William Pitt, Sir Philip Sidney, Edward Montagu, Thomas Gray, William Shakespeare, James Stanhope, Benjamin Franklin, Sir Joshua Reynolds, George Spencer, William Hogarth, Hester Piozzi, Hannah More, Samuel Johnson, Alexander Pope, Horace Walpole Francis Bacon and others.Elizabeth Montagu (1718-1800) was a British social reformer, patron of the arts, salonist, literary critic, and writer who helped organize and lead the Blue Stockings Society. Her parents were both from wealthy families with strong ties to the British peerage and intellectual life. She is sister to Sarah Scott, author of A Description of Millenium Hall and the Country Adjacent. She married Edward Montagu, a man with extensive holdings, to become one of the richer women of her era. She devoted this fortune to fostering English and Scottish literature and to the relief of the poor. In 1760, George Lyttleton encouraged her to write Dialogues of the Dead, and she contributed three sections to the work, anonymously. It is a series of conversations between the living and the illustrious dead and works as a satire of 18th century vanity and manners. In 1769, she published An Essay on the Writings and Genius of Shakespear. In it, she proclaims William Shakespeare the greatest English poet and, in fact, the greatest poet of any nation. She also attacks Samuel Johnson's Preface to Shakespeare from 1765 for not having gone on to praise Shakespeare's plays enough. While Johnson had dealt with text, history, and the circumstances of editing, Montagu wrote instead about the characters, plots, and beauties of the verse in Shakespeare and saw in him a championing of all things inherently English. When the book was initially published anonymously, it was thought to be by Joseph Warton, but by 1777 her name appeared on the title page. Johnson, for his part, was estranged from Montagu at this point. (Wikipedia).

        Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

      James R. Osgood, 1873 First American edition, with the jellyfish design on the front board. Octavo, original rust colored cloth. With "The End" printed on page 303, illustrated with 109 plates, including two maps, with jellyfish on the front board, and the incorrect use of the word "Sea" in the title on front board. Although the reason for the scarcity is unknown, it is speculated that most of the Osgood copies were destroyed in the Great Boston Fire. Some of Verne's fiction has also become a fact: his submarine Nautilus predated the first successful power submarine by a quarter century, and his spaceship predicted the development a century later. The first all-electric submarine, built in 1886, was named Nautilus in honor of Verne's vessel. The first nuclear-powered submarine, launched in 1955, was named Nautilus, too. The film version was produced by Walt Disney in 1954 and directed by Richard Fleischer, won an Oscar for its special effects. Some wear on top of spine, but not recased and one of the best copies seen in recent years. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Firsts Magazine featured a blue copy of this edition on its cover in 1996, running an article raving that this is the "rarest milestone title in the science fiction genre, since it is known only by a handful of extant copies, perhaps 10 to 15." However, based on our experience, this is an exaggeration of its rarity. Still it is certainly a rare and important first US edition, especially in this condition. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.

        Vier Wochen französischer Geschichte, Rochau 1852, HOFBIBLIOTHEK

      Rochau A.L. von, 1810-1873 - Vier Wochen französischer Geschichte, Rochau 1852, HOFBIBLIOTHEK WITTELSBACH-franz. Staatsstreich vom 2.Dezember 1851 Vier Wochen französischer Geschichte; 1. December 1851 - 1. Januar 1852; von A. L. von Rochau Avenarius & Mendelssohn ; Leipzig Kl. 8°, 18x11 cm., Hln., 166 S., gering stockfleckig. SEHR SELTEN, PROVENIENZ: HOFBIBLIOTHEK WITTELSBACH. Die Zweite Französische Republik (französisch: Deuxième République française) ging aus der Februarrevolution hervor. Ihr Beginn war der 25. Februar 1848. Nach einer kurzen Phase des Nebeneinanders von linken und liberalen Kräften setzten sich vor allem nach dem Juniaufstand 1848 die gemäßigten Liberalen durch. Als im Dezember 1848 Louis Napoleon Bonaparte die Präsidentschaftswahlen gewann, verstärkten sich die antirevolutionären Tendenzen noch einmal. Nach dem 2. Dezember 1851 und tiefgreifenden Verfassungsänderungen zu Gunsten des Präsidenten bestand die Republik nur noch auf dem Papier, ehe am 2. Dezember 1852 das zweite Kaiserreich ausgerufen wurde. Das Regime des Bürgerkönigs Louis Philippe war letztlich an der Lösung der sozialen Frage gescheitert und daran, der Forderung nach politischer Partizipation nicht entsprochen zu haben. Das Regime hatte die Hungersnöte von 1846 und 1847 vergleichsweise gut überstanden und die Regierung konnte sogar 1846 die Wahlen gewinnen. Der Hauptgrund für das Scheitern war die unnachgiebige Haltung in der Wahlrechtsfrage. Die politische Unbeweglichkeit kam hinzu. Dieser Unmut machte sich in der Februarrevolution Luft. Der Versuch des Louis Philippe scheiterte, den Revolutionären mit der Ernennung von Adolphe Thiers noch entgegenzukommen. Dieser musste daher am 24. Februar 1848 abdanken und ins Exil gehen. In der ersten Phase der Revolution und Republik bis zum Zusammentritt einer Nationalversammlung am 4. Mai 1848 gab es eine provisorische Regierung unter Alphonse de Lamartine, an der alle oppositionellen Kräfte von den republikanischen Liberalen, über linke Demokraten (Radikale) bis hin zu den Sozialisten beteiligt waren. Von Beginn an war die Entwicklung geprägt vom Gegensatz zwischen den bürgerlichen Liberalen auf der einen Seite und den von Arbeitern und kleinen Handwerkern unterstützten Sozialisten auf der anderen. Die Regierung führte sofort einen Zehn- bis Elfstundentag ein und erlaubte die Bildung von Gewerkschaften. Vor allem der sozialistische Minister Louis Blanc sorgte für die Einrichtung von Nationalwerkstätten zur Beschäftigung der Arbeitslosen vor allem in Paris, was dem proklamierten &#132;Recht auf Arbeit" (droit de travail) entsprach. Damit war allerdings nicht die Einrichtung von Korporativen verbunden, wie sie die Sozialisten wollten, vielmehr bestand der Kompromiss innerhalb der Regierung darin, öffentliche meist unproduktive Arbeitsmaßnahmen zu finanzieren. Das Privateigentum war damit nicht in Frage gestellt. Die Maßnahmen selbst waren nur wenig wirksam. Die Zahl der Arbeitslosen stieg weiter an und die Kosten führten zu inflationären Tendenzen. Wahl zur Nationalversammlung und Juniaufstand Barrikadenkampf in der Rue Soufflot, Paris, 25. Juni 1848 (Juniaufstand) In der Wahlrechtsfrage setzten sich die Linken stärker durch. Mit Erklärung vom 4. März 1848 wurde als erstes Land in Europa das allgemeine Wahlrecht für Männer eingeführt. Die Zahl der Wahlberechtigten stieg damit von 250.000 auf 9 Millionen. Die Wahlen zur Nationalversammlung vom 23. April 1848 zeigten, dass die Mehrheit zwar die Monarchie ablehnte, aber für einen eher gemäßigt liberalen Kurs und nicht für eine sozialistische Republik plädierte. Etwa die Hälfte der 900 Sitze fielen an die gemäßigten Befürworter der Republik, nur etwa 200 an die radikalen Demokraten und Sozialisten. Hinzu kamen weitere 200 Abgeordnete für die Dynastie Orleans und noch einmal 40 Legitimisten, also Anhänger der älteren Linie der Bourbonen. Nach der Wahl löste sich die provisorische Regierung auf. An ihre Stelle trat eine exekutive Kommission. Dass die sozialen Konflikte nicht ge [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Paradisea Minor [Lesser Bird of Paradise]

      [London: Daniel Giraud Elliot, 1873. Lithograph by J. Smit after Joseph Wolf, hand-coloured by J.D. White, heightened with gum arabic. A magnificent image from Elliot's Birds of Paradise, painted by Joseph Wolf, "without exception, the best all-round animal artist who ever lived' (Sir Edwin Landseer). Ornithological illustration reached its zenith during the golden age of lithography, and this image is from that great era. Even today, with all of the excellent methods of colour reproduction available, the beauty of hand-colouring cannot be equalled. Joseph Wolf is pre-eminent among the ornithological artists of the day: he was the first bird artist to fully understand and use the new freedom of style that lithography allowed. The lithographic crayon suited Wolf's drawing style, transforming his soft expressive lines and subtle suggestions of movement into a printable image. His work set a new standard in life-like representations and Wolf's skill at capturing the essential character of his subjects also breathed life into the stiff "bird on a perch" portrayals so characteristic of bird art of the day. The plates in Elliot's Monograph of the... Birds of Paradise , "almost as magnificent as the birds they portray, were the fruits of Elliot's considerable wealth, Wolf's great artistry and both men's profound knowledge and love of birds" (Dance). Elliot writes in the preface "The drawings of Mr. Wolf will, I am sure, receive the admiration of those who see them; for, like all that artist's productions, they cannot be surpassed, if equalled, at the present time. Mr. J. Smit has lithographed the drawings with his usual conscientious fidelity, and in his share of the work has left me nothing to desire... In the coloring of the plates Mr. J.D. White has faithfully followed the originals; and in the difficult portions where it was necessary to produce the metallic hues, he has been very successful." Cf. Anker 131; cf. Dance, The Art of Natural History , 1978, p.132; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 95; cf. Nissen IVB 296; cf. Wood p. 331; cf. Zimmer p. 207.

        [Grey Heron] Ardea Cinerea

      [London: Taylor and Francis for the Author, 1873. Lithograph, coloured by hand and finished with gum arabic, by J. Gould & H.C. Richter, printed by Walter. A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood) This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered... it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf.Nissen IVB 372; cf.Sauer 23; cf.Wood p. 365; cf.Zimmer p. 261.

        Shusui seizosho. Kagaku shokei fu koori no koto [trans.: Manual of Rectified Spirits].

      Some woodcuts in the text. 35 folding leaves. Small 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: 1873. First edition in Japanese of what we believe to be a translation of Henry Hartshorne's The Family Adviser and Guide to the Medicine Chest. A Concise Hand-book of Domestic Medicine (1868). 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.

        Post Route Map of the State of New York and Parts of Vermont Massachusetts Connecticut New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Also the Adjacent Portions of the Dominion of Canada

      Washington, 1873. Engraved map on two sheets, period hand-colouring in outline, sectioned and linen-backed at a contemporary date. Two insets of Long Island and a portion of Canada. Sheet size: 56 3/4 x 64 inches. Housed in a contemporary brown cloth slipcase, title stamped in gilt on the covers. Provenance: John Henry Devereux, 1832-1886, President of the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis Railway (name stamped in gilt on the slipcase). Rare official Post Route map of the State of New York and vicinity, owned by the Civil War General in charge of all Union railroad lines and the President of a major railroad company following the war. Nicholson, who was responsible for setting up the topographical department of the Post Office during the Civil War, went on to serve as the official Topographer to the Post Office for 22 years. His maps focus on the postal routes and, naturally, towns, as well as political boundaries and railroad routes. Lakes, rivers and other waterways provide the only topographical detail. The postal routes are colour-coded to indicate frequency with which they are used (e.g., black for six times per week, blue for three times per week), with rail routes differentiated by cross-hatching. The distance for each route segment is also indicated. The map includes a legend and an inset table of distances between post offices. The official Post Office Department logo and motto ('With Celerity Certainty and Security') is also present. Nicholson's maps were originally published between 1866-1876, but it was essential to keep updating them, and to this end the map also includes a printed note "The Service on this diagram brought up to date of", followed by a space in which a manuscript date has been added. The relationship between the Post Office and the railroads began very early. The first known contract was in 1832, just two years after the maiden voyage of the nation's first steam locomotive, for transport of mail between Philadelphia and Lancaster, PA. On July 7, 1838, an act of Congress declared all rail routes to be postal routes, and the railways rapidly became the backbone of the postal system. While these maps were distributed throughout the Post Office Department, it is not clear how often these early issues of the maps were given or sold to non-governmental users, like the present. Devereux, the original owner of this map, was the President of the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis Railway at the time of publication. He had served in the Civil War as the officer in charge of all the Union rail lines, eventually achieving the rank of General. Phillips, p. 517 (1881 issue); Cf. Virginia W. Mason.

        Patinage á roulette, roller skating - Jack Abeillé.

      Gewassen tekening met waterverf, kleurkrijt en dekwit op velijnpapier door Jack Abeillé (1873 Varenne-Saint-Hilaire), getiteld "Salade de Saison / Le sport de la mode: Voulez-vous ruiker (?) mademoiselle?"' Gesigneerd en gedateerd (19)09 rechtonder. Formaat ca. 32,5 x 24 cm.Deze tekening komt uit de verzameling van Charlotte von Prybram-Gladona.Charlotte, habituée van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te München en trouwde op vierentwintigjarige leeftijd met de Weense edelman Albin von Prybram-Gladona. De echtelieden ontmoetten elkaar tijdens de danslessen die Albin, twintig jaar ouder dan Charlotte, nam om fit te blijven (!). Zijn familie onderhield nauwe banden met Einstein, Schweitzer, Rilke en Thomas Mann, terwijl hij Johannes Brahms kende als 'Onkel Jo'.Toen Charlotte en Albin vlak voor het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog verhuisden naar Parijs, verkochten zij noodgedwongen het leeuwendeel van hun meubelcollectie. Dat stelde hen echter wel in staat zich over te geven aan hun passie voor tekeningen, die beduidend minder plaats innamen. Het echtpaar keerde in 1969 terug naar Oostenrijk en vestigde zich in Salzburg. Albin overleed vijf jaar later, terwijl Charlotte er de hoge leeftijd van 92 bereikte.Prijs: € 600,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).
