         Swanston Street Looking North]. Instantaneous Views of Melbourne.

      Caire. No date. (circa1875)., 11 Royal Arcade, Melbourne. - Albumen print laid down onto card with gold lined borders. Captioned in gold ink: Fine Art Photograph. N.J. Caire/11 Royal Arcade/Melbourne/Instantaneous Views of Melbourne. Three very tiny chips at edges, lightly creased in a few places. These creases are more apparent in the image of the photograph than to the naked eye. Photograph measures 15 x 20cm. A very interesting view of Swanston Street. The Princes Bridge Hotel which soon after this photo was taken, changed its name to Young & Jackson after Henry Young and Thomas Jackson took over the licence in 1875, can be seen in far left of the image, Melbourne Town Hall is to the right while the eye is drawn down Swanston Street by the horses, carts and a few pedestrians that take up the central section of the photograph. N.J. Caire described by Jack Cato in "The Story of the Camera in Australia" as "an aristocrat of the camera" was from his youth affected with "the madness of photography". His established his first studio in Adelaide in 1860 moving to the then gold field town of Clunes in 1870 before opening a studio in Melbourne in 1876. Given that this photograph still shows the sign of the Princes Bridge Hotel, on what became Young & Jackson, it seems likely this photograph predates the opening of his studio in Melbourne.

         [GREAT GAME: MONGOLIA & TIBET] Mongoliya i strana tangutov: Trekhletneye puteshestvie v vostochnoi nagornoi Azii [i.e. Mongolia, The Tangut Country, and the Solitudes of Northern Tibet, Being a Narrative of Three Years' Travel in Eastern High Asia, by N. Przhevalsky of the Russian Staff Corps, Member of the Imperial Russian Geographical Society/ Edition of the Russian Geographical Society]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. of V.S. Balashev, 1875. 2 vols. ix, 381, [1 - errata]; [4], 2, 29, [2], iv, 176, 55, 36, 114, iv, ii pp. Large Quarto. With 31 chromolithographed plates and two large folding chromolithographed maps at rear. Contemporary quarter leather with gilt lettered titles on the spine and blind stamped decorative borders and corners on the boards. Owner's name written in ink, and numbers written in red pencil on both title pages, another owner's name written in ink on verso of the title page to vol. 2. Spines cracked on hinges, but repaired, minor foxing of the text, maps with a minor tear each, otherwise a very good set. First edition. Official account of Przhevalsky's first travel to Central Asia in 1870-1873, which made him world famous. Accompanied by only three men, he first explored the eastern frontiers of Central Asia, travelling from Kalgan (Zhangjiakou) as far as Duolun and Dalai Nuur Lake. During the next, major part of the travel, he explored the Ordos Plateau formed by the Ordos Loop of the Yellow River, crossed the Alashan section of the Gobi Desert and the Alashan range of the Nan Shan mountains, entering Marco Polo's little known ''country of Tanguts''. There he surveyed and mapped Lake Kokonor (Quinghai), discovered the Quaidam (Tsaidam) Basin west of the lake, and crossing the Burkhan Buddha range of the Kunlun Mountains, traversed the Tibetan plateau, going as far as the upper reaches of the Yangtse River. Due to the lack of resources the party had to turn back being about 850 km from Lhasa; Przhevalsky returned to Urga via the central part of the Gobi Desert which hasn't been visited by a European before. The expedition altogether went for over 11,800 km, produced first thorough descriptions of the Gobi, Ordos and Alashan Deserts, the Quaidam (Tsaidam) Basin and the Tibetan Plateau, mapped over twenty mountain ranges and seven new lakes; assembled voluminous zoological and botanical collections. The book consists of two volumes: the expedition account (v.1), and results of scientific observations (v. 2), the latter contains articles about the region's climate, birds, fish, and reptiles. The description of Mongolian and Tibetan flora which was planned to compile the third volume of the book was instead published as the first part of the series of Nauchnye Rezultaty puteshestviy N.M. Przhevalskogo v Tsentralnoy Azii… (i.e. Scientific Results of N.M. Przhevalsky's travels in Central Asia…; SPb., 1889). Chromolithographed plates depict mammals, birds, fish and reptiles; detailed chromolithographed map published on two large folding sheets represents the ''Route survey [executed] during the Travel of Przhevalsky in the Eastern Asian Plateau in 1871, 1872 and 1873''. The book was awarded with the Gold medal of the Russian Geographical Society (1874), a diploma of the International Geographical Congress in Paris (1875), prestigious Founder's Medal of the Royal Geographical Society (1879), and others; it was quickly translated into major European languages.

Poland, an officer who served under Major Reno at the Little Big Horn and was erroneously reported as "Killed In Action" when severely wounded in the back.

One month later, the Commissioner of Indian Affairs called for the use of troops against those Indians. Also signed by Lieutenant William Badger, a close friend of Custer who survived the Black Hills Campaign. His son Tom, who filled out the body of this document, became General Custer's personal secretary in 1876 and was killed at Little Big Horn.

By and large an excellent, early Japanese photographic album. Photographed by the most famous and outstanding foreign photographer of the period, Raimund Von Stillfried. With 15 large color photo examples of portraits, posed photos of ten Japanese women including one of a young woman with breast exposed, 3 of Japanese men, of the 8 smaller black and white photos, 6 of women, and a pair of Samurai-warriors, rickshaw coolies & women, palanquin & a woman.

      - Size leather bound album: 31 x 25 cm. Size photographs 24 x 17 cm., 29 x 18,5 cm. and 19,5 x 18,5 cm. Total 95 photographs: 52 signed J. V. (James Valentine), 40 signed G. W. W.

In the front and back part of the binding some damp stains, but not affecting the albumen prints. Some fading, in general good tonal range. ** James Valentine (1815-1879) was a Scottish photographer. Valentine's of Dundee produced Scottish topographical views from the 1860s, and later became internationally famous as the producers of picture postcards. About 1860, he decided to emulate the success of George Washington Wilson in Aberdeen in selling topographical view photographs. In 1866 Valentine carried out his first Royal commission and received the Royal warrant in 1867. His organisational and presentational skills were essential in the rapidly expanding and thriving concern which opened a large printing works at 152 and 154 Perth Road, Dundee. ---------------------------------- George Washington Wilson (1823-1893) was a pioneering Scottish photographer. After studying art in Edinburgh and London, Wilson returned to his native city of Aberdeen in 1849 and established a business as a portrait miniaturist catering to the wealthy families of the North East of Scotland. After some years of mediocre success, Wilson ventured into portrait photography in 1852 setting a portrait studio with John Hay in 25 Crown Street in Aberdeen. From there, aided by his well-developed technical and commercial acumen and a contract to photograph the Royal Family while documenting the building of Balmoral Castle in 1854-1855, he established himself as one of Scotland's premier photographers working for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1860.

         Auftreten in München des weltberühmten Athleten Holtum, sogenannten Kanonenkönigs. Bekannt durch die Pariser, Londoner und Leipziger illustrirten Zeitungen, Herr Holtum spielt und jonglirt mit 20, 30 und 60pfündigen Kanonenkugeln, wie ein Knabe kaum mit Orangen zu spielen vermag. Zum Schlusse dieser ausserordentlichen Produktion wird Herr Holtum eine wirkliche Kanone mit einer 20 pfündigen Kugel vor den Augen des Publikums laden und auf das Commando: \"Feuer\" die Kugel mit den Händen auffangen. Zu diesem fast unglaublichen Experiment ladet Herr Holtum alle wissenschaftlichen Männer Münchens ganz ergebenst ein, die Kanone und Kugel genau zu untersuchen.

      München, 11. Juli (1875). Plakat auf rosa Papier. Mit einem Holzschnitt. Blattgr.: 86 x 58 cm. Auftritt des legendären Kraftakrobaten und \"Kanonenkönigs\" John Holtum (1845-1919), der mit der Hand eine aus einer Kanone abgefeuerte Kugel auffangen konnte. Bei der ersten Vorführung des Tricks 1872 im Londoner Holborn-Theater hatte er einen Finger seiner linken Hand eingebüßt. Der aus dem dänischen Hadersleben stammende Holtum wanderte mit 15 Jahren nach Amerika aus, wurde Goldgräber in Nevada, dann Mitglied eines Circus in San Francisco und kam schließlich 1870 zurück nach Europa. Seine außergewöhnliche Nummer machte ihn zu einem Star im europäischen Zirkus; seine körperliche Attraktivität bescherte ihm eine Unzahl weiblicher Bewunderer. Einige dieser \"Groupies\" unterzeichneten gar eine Petition, die Holtum vom Fangen der Kanonenkugel abhalten sollte, auf das sein makelloser Körper nicht Schaden davon nehmen möge. Holtum heiratete aber eine schöne Kunstreiterin und ließ sich nach dem Ende seiner Karriere in England nieder. - Holtum setzte eine hohe Prämie für jeden aus, der ihm seine Aufführung nachmachen könnte; probiert haben es 161 starke Männer, die aber allesamt versagten. 1880 wurde er dafür in Leeds gar angeklagt, da einer der Probanden, Elijah Fenton, den Versuch nicht unbeschadet überstand: \"The first to try to catch the ball was Mr Fenton, but when the cannon was fired it struck him on the head and knocked him down. He was conveyed to the Infirmary, where it was found that his skull was fractured, and that he had received injuries to the nose\". - Eine Faltung angerissen. Versand D: 5,00 EUR
