        Burmese subjects A group of costume studies of Burmese of men and women from various ethnic groups.

      - 16 original watercolours, heightened with body white, each signed M.T. Hla, lower right, each c.21 x 15.5 cm. in uniform mounts, bearing a contemporary seller's label of Smart and Mookerdum, Rangoon. This fascinating group depicts 8 pairs of men and women from 7 different ethnic groups, comprising the Padaung, where the woman is depicted wearing the characteristic brass neck rings, the Shan, Chin, Kachin, Palaung, Karen, and two different pairs from the Taung Yo people. The Burmese artist, Maung Tun Hla (1874–1946) was an early pioneer of the Western style of watercolour. At the beginning of the 20th century, he received inspiration and guidance from a visiting British artist, Sir Gerald Kelly (1879-1972), whose great reputation was, itself, to become based on his depictions of Burmese people and landscape. Kelly was later elected President of the Royal Academy. Hla, who always signed his works M.T. Hla, also went on to achieve great success in his own country, his works hanging in the grandest hotels, their popularity with Burmese and British patrons earning him a great fortune. Such figure studies as this group of 16, were outside any tradition previously known in Burma, and correspond more to the Western ethnographic interest in such subjects. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Dieyerie tribe of Australian Aborigines

      W.C. Cox, Adelaide 1874 - Octavo, 51 pp., early ink owner's name on title and first page (Wm. Tomsett of Queenstown 1874) in a modern binding. First edition, and an important account of the customs of the Dieyerie tribe (now more commonly "Diyari" or "Diery") of the area around Cooper's Creek north of Adelaide. It is based, the author notes, on 'a sojourn of over nine years in the Dieyerie country, and constant intercourse with the tribe, having familiarized me with their language, and their manners and customs'.Samuel Gason joined the South Australian Police force in 1865 at the age of twenty three and was stationed at Lake Hope. He was promoted to Mounted Constable Second class the following year. One of his most difficult tasks while at Lake Hope was negotiating with local Aborigines who were taking sheep from graziers, a conflict he seems to have managed with good sense. His tenure included the heavy flooding of 1870, during which he reported the deaths of 17 Aborigines. In 1871 Gason was transferred to Barrow Creek, where he witnessed the attack on the Telegraph Station.Gason's work was considered a most useful amateur contribution, and was used in the later compendium The Native Tribes of South Australia (Adelaide, 1879). A few spots, paper repairs to final two leaves; very good. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Behm Murderers: Trial and Conviction of Rosentine and Moody, for the murder of Abraham Behm; With an Account of All the Executions that Have Taken Place in Dauphin County

      Harrisburg, PA, 1874. Softcover. G- (Well-worn cover edges; top cover has torn off and is present; spine material is missing; pages are generally clean; a possible re-binding candidate.). Tan wraps, 56 text pp., plus many ad pages. On the cover: "The Behm Murderers. Trial, Conviction, Confessions and Execution of Rosentine and Moody. Executed at Harrisburg, July 9, 1874, with a full account of All the Executions in Dauphin County since 1797." It's almost difficult to believe that the central Pennsylvanians of the late 19th-century actually paid 25 cents for copies of this booklet, but evidently they did. No National Enquirer existed for them at the time. The main feature here are the details surrounding the murder of cabinet-maker Abraham Behm of Londonderry township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, on November 14, 1873. The murderers were African American men, Lewis Rosentine and John Moody. We can read of the murder, the trial, the sentence, both suspects' confessions, and the execution. No vital piece of information is left untold. Details are also provided for the previous executions of Charles M'Manus and John Hauer (1798); James M'Gowen and James Jamison (1806); James Loudon (1818); Benjamin Stewart (1824); Courtland Charles Johnson (1854), Simon Green (1856), and Henry Hulzinger (1859). The text is accompanied by more than a dozen full-page ads for businesses in the area around the capital city of Harrisburg. Could be of interest to historians and genealogists alike. Please note that this is a copy of the original publication, and not a paperback reprint, e-book, or print-on-demand title. As such, it is rare.

        May du Maurier

      "Albumen print, original mount. 34 x 27.5 cm. Inscribed and signed on the mount by Cameron: "From life, registered photograph, copy right, Julia Margaret Cameron, Freshwater, Sep. 1874." Very good condition. This is an unrecorded portrait by Julia Margaret Cameron, the foremost British portrait photographer of her time. "How masterly ... are her straightforward, truthful portraits, which are entirely free from false sentiment." "It is they which have made her work immortal in the annals of photography" (Gernsheim). "After receiving a camera as a gift, Julia Margaret Cameron began her career in photography at the age of forty-eight. She produced the majority of her work from her home at Freshwater on the Isle of Wight. By the coercive force of her eccentric personality, she enlisted everyone around her as models, from family members to domestic servants and local residents. The wife of a retired jurist, Cameron moved in the highest circles of society in Victorian England. She photographed the intellectuals and leaders within her circle of family and friends, among them the portrait painter George Frederick Watts, the astronomer Sir John Herschel, and the Poet Laureate Alfred, Lord Tennyson. She derived much of her subject inspiration from literature, and her work in turn influenced writers" (Getty Museum) Cameron declared that "My aspirations are to ennoble Photography and to secure for it the character and uses of High Art by combining the real and Ideal and sacrificing nothing of the Truth by all possible devotion to Poetry and beauty." In September 1874 illustrator and novelist George Du Maurier, his wife, and his daughter May came to Cameron's home at the village of Freshwater on the Isle of Wight and sat for portraits. This image is unrecorded in Cox and Ford, Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs, which lists four portraits from the occasion (nos. 213-215 and 940). Cameron quotes Du Maurier as saying that her photography "charms me." Provenance: George du Maurier, and by descent.".

        A collection of 11 photographs including 8 superb photographs of Castillo San Marcos, the oldest military structure in the continental United States and 3 of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine first built in 1565 and rebuilt in the 1790s

      Eleven albumen prints (6 x 8 in.), mounted and captioned in a contemporary hand. Very good condition. This remarkable collection of early Florida photographs documents two of the most important early structures in Florida history: the fort Castillo de San Marcos and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. Built in 1672 the fort is the only extant 17th-century military structure in the continental United States. The church, located in the oldest parish of the United States (founded in 1565), was built in the 1790s. The eight photographs of Castillo San Marcos are: 1. Interior of Fort St. Marco. South West Corner showing entrance to Indian Prison. Old Well in the foreground. St. Augustine. Fla. 2. Interior of Fort St. Marco Showing entrance to Chapel. St. Augustine. Fla. 3. Interior of Fort St. Marco. Southeast Corner showing entrance to Dungeons. Chapel on the left. St. Augustine. Fla. 4. Fort St. Marco. South Front. Showing Drawbridge and Moat. St Augustine. Fla. 5.

Anastatia island, and Lighthouse in the distance. St. Augustine. Fla. 8. South Front from Parapet Fort St. Marco. Showing Drawbridge and Moat. St. Augustine Fla. The three photographs of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine read: 1. Catholic Church. St. Augustine. Fla. 2. Catholic Church. The oldest church on the continent of America. St. Augustine. Fla. 3. Catholic Church. St. Augustine. Fla. Protecting St. Augustine Florida (the oldest continuously occupied European settlement within the United States and near the site of Ponce de León's first landing in 1513) the Castillo San Marco was built while the Spanish Empire controlled Florida. Construction of the masonry fort began in 1672 after a devastating raid on the city by the British privateer Robert Searles. Over the centuries, Spain, Great Britain, the United States, and the Confederate States of America all controlled the fort. Several times over the course of its history the fort was used as a military prison. During the American Revolutionary war, the prisoners included Christopher Gadsden, the Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina and a delegate to the Continental Congress. Beginning in 1862 the United States used the fort as a military prison for Native Americans for several decades. One of the images shows the jail that was used for their confinement while another shows dungeons that were presumably used for the same purpose. In later years members of Geronimo's band of Apache warriors, including women, children, and Geronimo's wife were imprisoned. Ledger Art, a prominent art form among Plains Native Americans, began at the fort. Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine is located in the oldest parish in the United States, having been founded in 1565. In 1586 Francis drake destroyed the first church, built in 1565. In 1566 Martín de Argüelles was born in the parish, the first recorded birth of a child of European ancestry in what is now the continental United States. DATING. The photographs showing the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine allow us to date the entire group, which are on identical mounts and have captions in the same hand. Due to the presence of a side chapel built in 1873, the absence of the rectory built in 1875, and the presence of a stonewall destroyed in 1875 we ascribe a likely date to the series of ca. 1874. The photographs display consistent tones, dimensions, mounts, inscriptions, and aging across the collection. These images appear to be unrecorded. We have made a comprehensive online survey of photographic collections of the time and place, consulted the Library of Congress's digital archives, and queried area historical societies.

        Illustrations of China and its People

      Sampson Low, Marston, Low and Searle, London 1874 - (18 1/2 x 13 3/4 inches). 222 collotype photographic illustrations on 96 plates. Publisher's maroon morocco-grain cloth, front covers with large pictorial designs and letters blocked in gilt, bevelled boards, expertly rebacked to style, blue endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in two red morocco backed boxes. Provenance: Ladyman (booklabel in vols II-III), Hugh Lupus, 1st Duke of Westminster (1825-1899) Thomson's China: the first large-scale photographic documentation of China and a visual encyclopedia of its lands and peoples. Born in Edinburgh in 1837, it is believed that Thomson learned the photographic arts in his school years in that city. He first travelled to the far east in the late 1850s or early 1860s to visit his brother in Singapore, settling in Penang in 1862 at the age of twenty-five and opening his first photographic studio. However, studio photography did not interest him nearly as much as travelling the streets and countyside to capture the peoples and places he encountered. Between 1862 and 1868, Thomson travelled in Singapore, Ceylon, India, Siam, Cambodia, and Vietnam. In 1868, he arrived in Hong Kong: "it was a new beginning both in his life and his work . His fascination with the culture of China, the immense size of the country, and the opportunity it offered him to chronicle unexplored regions, all intensified his desire to travel there" (White, p. 17). Making four distinct journeys between 1870 and 1872, Thomson explored South China, Foochow and the River Min, Formosa, North China, Peking, Shanghai and the Yangtze. Returning to London in 1872, he shortly thereafter began work on the present work -- his most ambitious project. "My design in the accompanying work" Thomson writes in the Introduction, "is to present a series of pictures of China and its people, such as shall convey an accurate impression of the country I traversed as well as of the arts, usages, and manners which prevail in different provinces of the Empire. With this intention I made the camera my constant companion of my wanderings, and to it I am indebted for the faithful reproduction of the scenes I visited, and of the types of races which I came into contact." The selected 222 images were published on 96 plates, being collotypes produced from Thomson's original albumen photographs. "His imagery ranges from strict documentary to the picturesque, from an elegant straightforwardness to a photographic lyricism. His eye was that of the quintessential Victorian traveller, an incisive flaneur wandering the streets of exotic lands, and an educated geographer. His motivation for photographing was to capture the essence of these unforgettable and never-before-photographed regions, and to obtain permanent records for visual delectation, instruction and verification" (White, p. 8). "This ambitious work . was the first photographic survey of the Chinese nation, providing portraits, street scenes, monuments and landscapes. It was the first travel book to be successfully illustrated with photomechanical facsimiles of albumen prints replicated in the recently perfected collotype process" (Truthful Lens). "The photographs taken on these journeys form one of the most extensive photographic surveys of any region taken in the nineteenth century. The range and depth of his photographic vision mark Thomson out as one of the most important travel photographers" (ODNB). Mixed issue, with the first two volumes identified on the title as the second edition, and the final two volumes being the first edition. Cf. Stephen White, John Thomson: A Window to the Orient (New York:1986); Goldschmidt & Naef, The Truthful Lens 168. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Epileptikern. In diesem "lebenden pathologischen Museum", einmalig in der Geschichte der Neurologie, fand er die reichen Quellen seiner neurologischen Fallbeschreibungen. Das Werk ist ein Klassiker der Neurologie, in der auch die epileptischen Krankheiten breit abgehandelt werden. An excellent idea of Charcot's work is gained by persual of his Lecons, dealing with teaching on nervous disorders. The Salpétrière offered Charcot a source of case material that was unique in the history of neurology. The present book is clinically oriented and deals with such topics as hemiplegia and spinal lesions, etc. cf. G.M. 4556; Hirsch-H. I, p.886 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1874 - 1874 Original Front Wrapper Incredibly Rare

      1874. On offer here is an 1874 Wisden that has it's original front wrapper together with a facsimile spine and rear wrapper. After the 1875 and 1864 and perhaps the 1869, 1874 is the rarest of all Wisden and I think only one has been offered for sale on Wisden Auction before. This copy retains it's original front wrapper but as will be seen from the photograph it has areas of darkening and discolouration and the bottom right hand corner has been restored. The first few pages also have areas of discolouration but in my view these do not detract from the book itself. The discolouration lessens so that by the time you reach page 11 there is no trace. The remaining contents are complete, original and in very nice condition. The last page has the remains of a sellotape mark to it. The spine and facsimile rear cover have been very sympathetically done and are in fine condition. Overall this is a very presentable copy of a very rare book. If a prospective purchaser would prefer I could have the book rebound by Scriveners Bookbinders in Buxton, Derbyshire who do a fabulous job of rebinding Wisden in a variety leather and cloth bindings. Don't hesitate to ask for details.
