        HONG KONG ISLAND PANORAMIC B.W. ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH.

      Hong Kong n.d. ca. 1875, n.p. A very large b. w. album photo. photo size: 64.3 x 21.3 cm., mounted on boards 67.3 cx 25.6. cm., very good, some minor fading in the center, folded in. the center with cotton tape on the verso, no major defects.. A LOVELY LARGE & EARLY PANORAMIC VIEW OF HONG KONG C.1875 This is a very rare and quite early panoramic view of Hong Kong Island. * The photograph was taken from Kowloon across the harbor showing the outline of the mountains, the peak and the city of Victoria [central area], with the waterfront, and center left is the anchorage and Wanchai. A large sailing brig is at anchor just near Wanchai. * THE PHOTOGRAPH: The photograph is composed of three photographs, aligned and laid down on a stiff board. The center has a vertical cut to the photographs, and folds backwards with a cotton tape supporting the two halves. At some earlier time when the photographs were laid down, their appears to have been another cotton tape on the recto over which the photographs were affixed. That tape has broken, thus leaving the folded photos to be separated now. This is normal for very large panoramic photographs of this early period. * THE COLOR OF THE IMAGES: The three photographs were taken with a panoramic type camera, that actually took a large width photograph. After taking three such photographs, the photographer mounted the three photos by aligning one over the other then gluing them down on the stiff board. It is therefore necessarily true that each photograph was taken consecutively, but due to the chemical developing process, ambient temperature, time of day and differences of exposures, and other physical factors, each photograph has a slight variation in color and density so that they are not perfectly matched, which was the norm of the period of the 1870's photography. * THE IMAGES: Each image is exceptionally clear, save for the far right image has a small skiff in motion and is blurry, otherwise all photos are clear, with strong images and little fading. The center photograph was taken with some different setting or at a different time of day and is therefore somewhat less dense in color, but is nevertheless still sharp and clear. The photo at the far left was also taken at a different time of day, perhaps in the late afternoon as it is darker the the others. All of this is entirely normal for panoramic photographs. * THE CONDITION: The photos are all in very good or better condition, as issued, with albumen surface which is quite intact. There are a few very small spots at the upper area or the sky, these are not greatly distracting or obvious. The mat board has a few small & old foxing spots, and a slight wave to the board but the wave matches when the two parts are folded face to face. It was very common for leaves of photo albums of this period to have this sort of form. The edges are gilt and its is likely this photo was removed from some center hinged photo album. So it was meant to be folded in the center from day one. There is a small flaw in the negative in the far right photograph which is unknown but not something that happened after the photos were mounted. By and large these are excellent photographs, no fading. If there was any fading, it would be an overall issue. Strong images otherwise. *** THE VERSO: The verso has four albumen photographs: [from the left] 1. A large image of what can be India or that area, showing people wearing Sarongs, 27 x 18.5 cm. very clean sharp image. This view shows a number of people surrounded very very tall bamboo thickets and a road paved with stones leading down to the water. The water appears to be a very slow-moving river with no current whatsoever. * 2. Unidentified location, a waterfront on the water, with "Eastern Telegraph Co." [a British firm established 1860] at the left, Frank Azzopardi & Co., Ship Chandlers & Stevedores, 21.3 x 16.8, very good, solid image, with s touch of hand-color of red on a small flag found on the stern of a ship. * 3. Two small photographs, 10 x 7.2 cm. showing the ship's company of a naval vessel rowing two launches. According to the uniforms, these could possibly be American or British in nature from the 1870's. In the lower photo at the top is what appears to be a sailor on watch duty, he has a utility belt with pistol, and looks down at others on a catwalk with a large cargo net used for support and rigging for marines. The sailors wear both white uniforms, as well as blues for work and as part of the deck or ['black'] crew who do jobs that would otherwise soil their uniforms. They all wear white hats. *** It is this cataloguer's impression that this pair of album leaves were pulled from some sort of a 'cruise book' commemorating the voyage of some early naval vessel's cruise in foreign waters, recording for memory a historic journey, this was a common feature of most world navies and still is ! * NOTE ON OUR PHOTOGRAPHS OF THIS PHOTOGRAPH We have tried our best to make photos, but the first image we post "cover.jpg" to our website is slightly different that the other two we post due to the fact that this was photographed in full sun, so it looks more grey than brown tones, the brown tones are true and a correct reflection of the actual color. When we used the flash this left a bright mark on the photo so we have elected not to use that kind of photo. *** Color scans can be sent by email.

        [Wood County, Ohio county atlas, printed within:] Historical Atlas of the World Illustrated: giving histories and maps of all the countries in their geographical, statistical, and commercial aspects, together with a complete history of the original surveys of the United States, with a special map showing lands surveyed by Government. Constructed by A. Keith Johnston, H.D. Rogers, Edw. Weller and other eminent geographers; compiled and editied [sic] by Charles H. Jones, assisted by Theodore F. Hamilton

      Chicago: H.H. Hardesty & Co, 1875. Folio. (19 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches). Historical Atlas section: title, 4pp. preliminaries, pp.7-88 text; 7pp. wood-engraved illustrations, 1 folding chromolithographed map, 40 hand-coloured lithographic maps (13 double-page). Wood County, Ohio section, printed on verso of the text and map to the preceding: 1p. 'Index to Wood County', [27]pp. of text; 11 uncoloured lithographic plates with views of 22 properties in Wood Co., 1 double-page hand-coloured map of the county, 2 hand-coloured maps of Ohio and surrounding states, 6 hand-coloured town-plans (2 double-page). Publisher's black half roan over brown cloth-covered boards, the lower cover blocked in blind, the upper cover in gilt and blind An extraordinary 19th century American atlas: an Ohio county atlas published within a stock atlas of the world, with the county maps and views printed on verso of stock atlas sheets. The inspired idea of combining county and national atlases seems to have been a particular favourite of the publishers Hardesty & Co. Between 1875 and 1882 they published nine different variations on the same theme, combining the Historical Atlas of the World with atlases/histories/trade listings for the counties of Defiance, Fulton, Wood, Monroe, Lawrence and Putnam in Ohio; Jay and Wells in Indiana; and Wood & Pleasants (in one vol.) in West Virginia. The two works are truly inextricable: views and text from one are published on the backs of the maps in the other. For instance: the double-hemisphere world map from the Historical Atlas has the first two pages of the History of Wood County on the verso and the double-page map of Wood County has maps of Newfoundland on one recto and Canada, etc. on the other. To attempt to unite the two, the publisher has numbered the Ohio county content with fractions, so that the page numbering is consecutive. The Historical Atlas is a fine example of its type: a majority of the maps are of the Americas (including 12 of one or more of the individual States), and the colouring is attractive and colourful. The Wood County section includes much valuable information from an historical viewpoint and a number of charming views of the houses and farms of the prominent members of the community. "Despite their limitations and inaccuracies, nineteenth-century county atlases nonetheless preserve a detailed cartographical, biographical, and pictorial record of a large segment of rural America in the Victorian age" (Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, p. 424). Ristow, who devotes an entire chapter to the 19th century production of county atlases, makes no mention of such a combined atlas. We have never encountered another in this format.

      London: Taylor and Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co, 1875. Hand-coloured lithograph by Gould and William Hart, printed by the Mintern Brothers. Very good condition. A beautiful print from Gould's "Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia."

It is his last full-scale work. Gould prepared the first twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the work was finished posthumously by Sharpe. A broadside "Address to the Subscribers" of The Birds of New Guinea issued by Sotheran and Co. announced: "With respect...to the Birds of New Guinea , we have the pleasure to announce that, having purchased the entire stock and copyrights of Mr. Gould's Magnificent series of Works, we have made immediate preparations for completing those left unfinished; and having retained the services of Mr. Gould's entire staff of artists and colourists, we are confident that the work will be as well performed as during the life of the Author. Mr. Hart...will superintend the whole of the illustrations as heretofore; while the letterpress will be edited by Mr. Bowdler Sharpe, of the British Museum, whose name will be sufficient assurance that nothing will be wanting in this department."

Stitched stiff wrappers, very good, usual wear. to corners/edges, contents very clean,15 vol. set,411 double. page illustrations by color-tinted woodblocks, title slips a. bit worn as usual, each bound in a different color. COMPLETE. JAPAN'S MOST FAMOUS ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF COMIC CARICATURES This is a monumental work of art! It is probably the most famous of Hokusai's illustrated books. The main feature of this book is an encyclopedic demonstration of Hokusai's great ability in depicting all things Japanese found in daily life. . SUBJECTS OF THE MANGA: People, fauna, flora, landscape, the past, grotesque, technical, architecture, forerunners: . Covering a host of figures, animals, flowers, birds, landscapes, people, miscellaneous items, historical figures, Buddhist and Shinto temples, religious icons, military arts, Samurai, famous Japanese sights, Japanese and Chinese deities, architecture, a host of fish, landscapes, great and common people at their work, horses, humorous figures and a host of other sketches to tickle the imagination. Some of the illustrations are pastel colored in pink and light blue, the outlines are all are done in Sumi-black. * A wealth of superb art and excellent examples of Hokusai's best drawing and painting skills. Of all books ever done in Japan, it is this set that has captured the imagination of its viewers more than any other single book. It has also portrayed Japan to the world in graphic terms that anyone can understand. * The Manga has always been the most desirable & collectable of all of Hokusai's books. Seldom found in its complete state of 15 matching volumes. Each volume addresses a different aspect of Japanese life, the themes are highly creative and his unique ability to express humor is widely appreciated as his gift to the world at large. * He has always been the most ingenious of all Japanese artists, expressing a true native ability to record the essence of Japan and the Japanese character. The pictures of a giant octopus pouncing on a lonely spectator, the elongated limbs of his humorous characters tickle one's fancy. Chopsticks protruding from a man's nose...zany! * An important reflection of Japan, Japanese culture and daily life before the advent of Western influence.

Plates slightly stained before binding; spine and corners a bit rubbed; very good or better. Arguably the best and certainly the most enduring work on American numismatics ever written. Sylvester Sage Crosby began gathering information for his magnum opus in the late 1860s. Nominally the head of a committee of six appointed by the New England Numismatic and Archaeological Society to publish a work on early American coinage, he soon found himself alone in that pursuit. Not only was the research and composition of the work done almost entirely by Crosby, ultimately he also had to publish it. "It is truly the keystone to any library of American coinage." --Eric P.

I: "Empfangen Sie in aller Eile meinen wärmsten Dank für das werthvolle literarische Geschenk, durch dessen gütige Übersendung Sie mich neuerdings auszeichneten und erfreuten. Gleichzeitig aber kann ich nur aufrichtig bedauern, Ihrem Wunsche nach zwei Karten für die morgige Herrenhaus Sitzung trotz meiner eifrigsten Bemühung nicht nachkommen zu können, da nach Versicherung unseres Präsidialbureaus, wo die Eintrittskarten ausgegeben werden, seit zwei Tagen auch nicht das kleinste Plätzchen mehr verfügbar ist [.]" (Br. v. 18. März 1868; gemäß einer beiliegenden alten Antiquariatsbeschreibung an einen Dr. Jacques). - II: "Seit dem Tage, an welchem Sie und Herr Professor v. Egger mir die Ehre Ihres Besuches und Ihrer für mich so schmeichelhaften Aufforderung erwiesen, war ich von den verschiedensten Dingen so sehr in Anspruch genommen, daß sich bisher noch keine ganz freie und zu poetischen Conceptionen geeignete Stunde einfinden wollte [.] Um nun die Vorbereitungen zu der beabsichtigten Vorstellung für das Walther-Denkmal nicht zu beirren, bin ich zu der rechtzeitigen Anzeige bemüßigt, daß ich die mir freundlichst zugedachte Aufgabe eines Prologs oder dergleichen zu lösen wohl kaum in der Lage sein werde [.]" (Br. v. 20. Januar 1875). - III: "Indem ich auf Ihr so eben erhaltenes, sehr geschätztes Schreiben sowohl im eigenen, wie im Namen meiner Frau den wärmsten und verbindlichsten Dank abstatte, beeile ich mich in deren Auftrage die Versicherung auszusprechen, daß sie, schon um des edlen Zweckes willen, es sich zur besonderen Ehre und Freude rechnen würde, das ihr so freundlich zugedachte Amt einer Lady Patroneß bei dem für den Schriftsteller-Wittwenfonds beabsichtigten Concerte zu übernehmen [.]" (Br. v. 28. November 1875). - Der Brief von Auerspergs Witwe Marie v. 6.

        FUGAKU HYAKKEI: THE HUNDRED VIEWS OF MT FUJI

      [Nagoya 1875, Tohekido]. Blue stitched stiff wrs.,3 vol. set. woodblock printed on hand-made paper, very good,leaf 15 from. vol. 2 lacking, else contents complete, clean, clear images,. in tones of grey, Sumi, black, indigo blue, 164 x 24 cm.RARE. HOKUSAI'S MOST CELEBRATED BOOK ON SACRED MT. FUJI Perhaps Hokusai's [1760-1849] most famous work in book form, illustrating a profusion of views of Mt. Fuji from all perspectives. This was also the prototype for his great color print series on Mt. Fuji. A delightful & impressive work, used as a standard for over a hundred years by artists, designers and collectors. This monograph is devoted to Japan's most sacred Mt. Fuji in all its glory, portrayed in various seasons and as seen by common folk as they go about their daily lives & occupations. * The volumes are 22.5 x 15.5 cm., with 25+25+25 double folded leaves or 150 pages in all, with illustrations of Mt. Fuji on 144 of the pages, 6 pages of Japanese text. The history of the various editions are complex, suffice to say that the work was originally issued in two volumes [it could be that the whole work was simply bound within two covers]. Then there were basically two main editions: the first being published in 1834-5, and reprints of this the first edition in pink covers called "FALCON FEATHERS," later ones in yellow covers. Another in 1875, in black stiff covers. The contents in all cases identical, the size varied by only a few centimeters, essentially all are identical. * The introduction consisting of the first two pages in volume one were actually written by Hokusai. * The work is marvelous, and shows how Mt. Fuji was portrayed in the life of the Japanese. How in the spring time people sat outdoors and viewed the cherry blossoms with Mt. Fuji in the background. The theme is how Mt. Fuji was always present in their daily lives as a background. The artistry and skill of Hokusai is without parallel, he illustrated using his keen ingenuity at drawing skills. He put the sacred mountain in the picture in a myriad of ways. The mystical quality of Mt. Fuji is illustrated and conveyed by his acute composition, insight and visionary-like avant-garde skills which were head and shoulders above most all other artists of his time. Hailed as perhaps Japan's greatest artist of the 19th century. All of his original woodcut books are rare and of great value. * REPRINT EDITION: The 1948 reprint edition was an exact woodblock-printed edition of the earlier edition and has all of the same pages and illustrations found in earlier editions, with a paper Chitsu or folding cover, nicely done, good registry, color, the exact same size as earlier editions. * AN ENGLISH TRANSLATION: If you are interested in the English translation of each page of this set, please inquire with us for this title. It is a superb work, giving valuable insight to the texts found in this stunning work. It bears the title: FUGAKU HIYAKU-KEI: ONE HUNDRED VIEWS OF FUJI BY HOKUSAI.

        [Steam Locotmotive] An original ink and watercolour drawing of an American steam locomotive

      [United States, 1875. Original pen, ink and watercolour drawing on wove paper of a Mogul type locomotive, all within original ink ruled border, signed by the artist on the rail at the far right side. An expertly rendered drawing of one of the most powerful locomotives from the golden age of steam locomotion in the United States. The first American-built locomotive, the Best Friend, came into service in 1830. Lomomotive production reached its zenith in the decade following the Civil War, at the time of the present drawing. This "mogul" type locomotive is shown with cowcatcher and a 2-6-0 wheel configuration (2 small wheels at the front and six large driving wheels in the rear), a large headlamp with an American eagle emblem on its side, a wooden cab on which is neatly written "Mogul" and a riveted fire box below the boiler which shows a B within a six-pointed star within a circle. This powerful Mogul type locomotive was used primarily as a freight engine and was produced by the Baldwin Locomotive Works and Brooks Locomotive Works. The artist of the present drawing, G. H. Cushman, has signed his work at the bottom right on the rail.

Tavernier, original Japanese velum printed in black. First edition. Limited to 250 copies of which this is one of 236 numbered copies printed on Holland paper. A pessimistic vision of the future in which the ruins of Paris, destroyed two thousand years before by an apocalyptic cataclysm, are discovered by an expedition from Nouméa in Caledonia. Nearby a modest city inhabited by a group of semi- savages who speak a language similar to French is discovered. The description of the society of its inhabitants offers Franklin the chance to ridicule the ancient and recent customs of the French. The government of Nouméa funds the excavation and restoration of the city of Paris to its former glory and the archeologists from the three principal Nouméan Academies (Arts, Humanities and the Sciences) make funny misinterpretations of many of the artifacts they find (a similar, much later satire in the same vein is Robert Nathan's THE WEANS).

        Ceres

      Britain 1875 - Classically inspired competition design for a plaster wall, executed en grisaille in blue and grey tones. The design is centered on an oval image with a depiction of the Roman earth goddess Ceres, seated on a chariot drawn by a griffin. The imagery generally reflects Ceres¿s role in Roman mythology as the goddess of grain and agricultural fertility. The oval is surrounded by four roundel male heads, two wreathed in wheat, two in grape leaves. In each corner, young men in togas perform agricultural tasks, perhaps intended to represent four of the 12 minor gods who assisted Ceres with agricultural tasks (e.g. Insitor who sowed, and Obarator, who plowed). Below the oval a pair of cornucopias are filled with agricultural produce, and above is a sheaf of wheat. Ceres also holds a torch, emblematic of her association with the Roman tradition of the Eleusinian Mysteries. The whole is in a classical border with rosettes in the corners and center. The offered Ceres work is accompanied by a handwritten card that probably is a section of the mat it was originally framed with. The label states this was an entry "In Competition for the prizes of the Worshipful Company of Plaisterers [sic] London." A surviving fragment of a paper label shows part of the artist¿s name, and his or her age, 21. The Worshipful Company of Plaisterers is a plasterers¿ trade guild based in London that was chartered in 1501, and continues as the British association for plasterers and dryline (drywall) finishers today. The organization ran art student competitions as early as 1875. Insofar as the title on the label accompanying the Ceres work is also the same as the title of the prize as reported in 1875 (both wall designs), it may be presumed that Ceres was another work entered in that competition, or one shortly before or after. Condition: Generally very good with the usual overall light toning and wear. Tape residue verso from where formerly hinged. Fragments of original entry label affixed upper right. Competition title label, presumably from former matting, later affixed lower margin. Note: As a large artwork, extra shipping charges may apply.

        The Narcissus: Its History and Culture.

      L. Reeve & Co.,, London 1875 - 8vo (24.5 x 16.5 cm) Original cloth boards with gilt title and author on spine and Narcissus on cover, spine slightly sunned. Marble end papers. Collation: [ix]-xvi [1]-95pp + 48 hand-colored, lithographic plates. Excellent study on the genus Narcissus with beautifully executed lithographic plates by Burbidge with contemporary hand coloring. This is a very good copy in original cloth. "Burbidge, Frederick William Thomas (1847&1905), horticultural writer and explorer, was born at Wymeswold, Leicestershire, on 21 March 1847, the son of Thomas Burbidge, farmer and fruit grower, and his wife, Mary Spencer. He was educated at village schools and entered the gardens of the Royal Horticultural Society at Cheswick as a student in 1868, proceeding in the same year to the Royal Gardens, Kew. Here he showed skill as a draughtsman and was partly employed in making drawings of plants in the herbarium. Leaving Kew in 1870 he joined the staff of Garden magazine where he stayed until 1877, writing under the pseudonym Veronica. He also wrote for The Floral Magazine. During this period he published a number of works including Cool Orchids and How to Grow Them (1874), [Narcissus: Its History and Culture(1875)]and Cultivated Plants, their Propagation and Improvement (1877). These works drew much appreciation from contemporaries including Gladstone. Many of the plates included were drawn by Burbidge himself.In 1877 he was sent by the nursery firm James Veitch & Sons as a collector to Borneo. He was absent for two years, during which time he also visited Johore, Brunei, and the Sulu Islands. He brought back many remarkable plants, especially: pitcher plants, such as Nepenthes rajah and N. bicalcarata; orchids, such as Cypripedium laurenceanum, Dendrobium burbidgei, andAërides burbidgei; and ferns, such as Alsophila burbidgei and Polypodium burbidgei. The chronicle of his journey was published in 1880 as The Gardens of the Sun, or, A Naturalist's Journal on the Mountains and in the Forests and Swamps of Borneo and the Sulu Archipelago. The first set of the dried specimens brought back by him numbered nearly a thousand species, and was presented by Veitch to the Kew herbarium. Sir Joseph Hooker named the scitamineous Burbidgea nitida 'in recognition of Burbidge's eminent services to horticulture, whether as a collector in Borneo, or as author of Cultivated Plants, their Propagation and Improvement, a work which should be in every gardener's library' (Botanical Magazine, 1879, tab 6403). Though of only moderate ability as a cultivator, Burbidge was noted for his horticultural writings and expert draughtsmanship." ( G. S. Boulger, rev. Alexander Goldbloom- ODNB) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
