        The Literary Works of Sir Joshua Reynolds

      London: Bell and Daldy, 1873. Victorian set of the writings of eighteenth-century English painter Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792), the first president of London's Royal Academy of Arts, and the leading society portraitist of his era. In his discourses, Reynolds lays out a classic Enlightenment vision of the nature of art and the role of the artist: "there is a nobleness of conception, which goes beyond any thing in the mere exhibition even of perfect form; there is an art of animating and dignifying the figures with intellectual grandeur, of impressing the appearance of philosophic wisdom, or heroic virtue." This collection also includes a life of Reynolds, some of his occasional writings, an annotated verse translation of Fresnoy's Art of Painting, and a reference guide to the major painters. From the library of the great American portraitist, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), who like Reynolds courted and immortalized the leading social figures of his day in the grand manner. In 1874, the date of his ownership signatures, the young Sargent was just launching his artistic career in Paris. A very good set, with wonderful art historical provenance. Two octavo volumes, original blindstamped green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, publisher's advertisements printed on endpapers and first and last pages of both volumes. Frontispiece portrait in Volume I. Bookplate of John Singer Sargent to both pastedowns, Sargent's signature and "Christmas 1874" inscribed in both volumes. Light rubbing to bindings, paper hinges split.

        Großherzog Johann und seine Zeit, 6 Bde., Hofbibliothek Wittelsb

      Mühlbach Luise, 1814-1873 - Großherzog Johann und seine Zeit, 6 Bde., von Luise Mühlbach (1814-1873). Hofbibliothek Wittelsbach. Kl.8°, sehr schön in orig. Hldr., gliedert sich wie folgt: 3 Bde. Andreas Hofer, Berlin 1859, 306, 342, 393 S., plus 3 Bde. Erzherzog Johann und Metternich, Berlin 1860, 340, 330, 314 S. Sehr guter Erhaltunszustand, kaum gebräunt. ALLE 6 BÄNDE MIT HANDSCHRIFTLICHEM BESITZEREINTRAG VON MARIE LUISE VON WITTELSBACH. Marie Therese von Österreich-Este (1849–1919) Marie Therese Henriette Dorothea, auch Maria Theresia (* 2. Juli 1849 in Brünn; † 3. Februar 1919 auf Schloss Wildenwart/Chiemgau) war Erzherzogin von Österreich-Este, Prinzessin von Modena und von 1913 bis 1918 die letzte Königin von Bayern. Andreas Hofer (* 22. November 1767 am Sandhof bei St. Leonhard in Passeier in der damaligen Grafschaft Tirol; † 20. Februar 1810 in Mantua, Italien) war Wirt im Gasthaus „Am Sand" – daher auch als der Sandwirt bekannt. Darüber hinaus war er auch als Viehhändler tätig. Als Anführer der Tiroler Aufstandsbewegung von 1809 gilt er als Freiheitskämpfer gegen die bayerische und französische Besetzung seiner Heimat. Vor Ort wird Hofer – insbesondere von der deutschsprachigen Bevölkerung – oft mit zahlreichen Denkmälern als Volksheld und auf verklärte Weise auch als Nationalheld geehrt. Klemens Wenzel Lothar von Metternich Klemens Wenzel Lothar von Metternich (eigentlich Clemens Wenceslaus Nepomuk Lothar Fürst[1] von Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein; * 15. Mai 1773 in Koblenz; † 11. Juni 1859 in Wien) war Diplomat und Staatsmann im Dienste Österreichs. Im Jahr 1809 wurde er Außenminister. Seit 1813 stieg er zu einem der führenden Staatsmänner in Europa auf und spielte vor allem auf dem Wiener Kongress eine führende Rolle bei der politischen und territorialen Neuordnung Europas nach dem Sturz von Kaiser Napoleon I. im Sinne eines Gleichgewichts der Mächte. Als politischer Ausgestalter der Heiligen Allianz stand Metternich als führender Politiker der Restaurations- und Biedermeierzeit für das monarchische Prinzip und bekämpfte die nationalen und liberalen Bewegungen besonders in Deutschland und Italien. Luise Mühlbach, Pseudonym für Clara Mundt, geb. Müller (* 2. Januar 1814 in Neubrandenburg; † 26. September 1873 in Berlin) war eine vielgelesene deutsche Unterhaltungs-Schriftstellerin. Ihr Gesamtwerk umfasst 250 Bände. Mehrere ihrer Bücher wurden ins Englische übersetzt und besonders auch in den USA gelesen. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed.

      This entrepreneur first became a successful Chicago grain broker before becoming one of the founding members of the Chicago Board of Trade, but his Wall Street speculations made him a wealthy man in New York, where his plentiful and good-humored letters published in newspapers across the country earned him wider fame and the moniker "Uncle Rufus." ALS, 4pp, 4¼" X 7", New York, NY, 1873 September 2[4?]. Addressed "To his Excellency / The President of the U.S." (Ulysses S. Grant). Fair only. Though fairly legible for the most part, the letter is heavily age toned and worn, spotted and soiled. Despite rough condition, this letter is an outstanding example of the bold and popular style of "Uncle Rufus," and was penned just a few days after the stock market crash of September 18, caused by excessive speculation in Northern railroad construction that followed the Civil War -- a trend of which Hatch was a leading proponent. This "Panic of 1873" hit Hatch himself hard; his reputed $1 million worth dropped by nearly 75%, though he supposedly made good on his $600,000 indebtedness. This panic marked the start of the "Long Depression" -- two decades of a weak, uncertain economy. Hatch here advises the president -- who he knew personally, having taken him, members of his cabinet and 300 other guests on a 2-day round-trip New York/Newport cruise aboard the new steamer owned by the Pacific Mail Steamship Company which Hatch served as director not long before -- what to do in this new crisis: "I beg leave respectfully to submit the following proposition for the financial relief of the country. 1st In order to prevent inflation, 2ndly To prevent any advance on the Gold prime and 3rdly To prevent any disturbance in Exchanges between the United States and Europe, and 4thly That our exports may continue. Deposit $10,000,000 Gold & $10,000,000 Greenbacks in New York banks. Receive joint clearing house receipts as security. The Security is good. Loan any part of the $44,000,000 Greenbacks on any government bonds at par on $10,000 multiplied. The people have paid 100 on the [ ? ] upon which this proposition in based. When the Government needed $2000,000.000 as a military necessity the banks were trusted from $50,000,000 to $150,000,000 why not trust them now to the extent of $20,000,000 to save the country from financial ruin?" Signs off "Respectfully," large and bold. President Grant did not take Hatch's advise, instead contracting the money supply, which caused interest rates to rise and worsened the situation for those such as Hatch who were in debt. A fascinating and scarce piece.

By making proper allowances for the Italian rendering of northern names, Mr. Major has identified the most important places mentioned in the narrative of Zeno.[and he] has appended to his Essay, a " Description of Greenland in the Fourteenth Century," by Ivar Bardsen, in which facts are stated that tend to corroborate the statements of Nicolo Zeno."

      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. .

      [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.

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.

        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.
