        Bosporus mit Istanbul, im Vordergrund der Großwesir Hüseyin Avni Pasha in einer Kutsche, von Reitern begleitet, umgeben von einer Menschenmenge.

      O. O., 1875.. Öl auf Holz. Signiert und datiert 1875.. Der in Regensburg geborene Pferde- und Schlachtenmaler, Illustrator und Schriftsteller Lang war Schüler von Karl Steffek in Berlin, Friedrich Voltz und Franz Adam in München und Adolf Schreyer in Paris. "Da die größeren Bestellungen nach dem Kriege bisweilen ziemlich lang warten ließen, so benutzte Lang die unfreiwillige Muße zu neuen Nachlesen und Excursionen nach Frankreich und seinem lieben Paris, oder nach Ungarn und zu den Donaufürstenthümern, wobei ein längerer, sehr fruchtbringender Aufenthalt in Constantinopel und ein Abstecher nach Griechenland erfrischenden Wechsel boten [...] wobei dem Maler und Beschauer die fesselnde Abwechslung von morgenländischen Trachten, Eselfuhrwerken, Kameltreibern, Melonenhändlern, von goldglänzenden Wagen, verschleierten Weibern zu statten kam - eine sinnbethörende Lebensmannigfaltigkeit, welche mit den blauen Uniformen, Raupenhelmen, Tornister- und Gewehrreihen. mit Pulverdampf und Granatwölkchen gefällig und anregend contrastierte. Man sah um so deutlicher, mit welcher Bravour Lang in Krieg und Frieden zu Hause war und die schwierigsten Stoffe als echter Künstler bewältigte. Ebenso wohlthätig überraschten die Bilder vom Bosporus" (ADB Ll, 551). - Boetticher 1.2, 803, 13. Vgl. Thieme/Becker XX, 317. Rosenberg, Münchner Malerschule, S. 50. Pecht, Geschichte der Münchner Kunst, S. 411. ADB Ll, 547ff.

        Craspedophora Mantoui, Oustalet (Mantou's Firebird)

      London 1875 - 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 about to meet with the country’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, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While is Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented Birds of Asia. The Birds of New Guinea 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 Birds of New Guinea, 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 Birds of Paradise (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the Birds of New Guinea, which, like the Birds of Asia, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Craspedophora Mantoui, Oustalet, measures 22" x 15" and is in mint condition. This lithograph shows the bird commonly known as Mantou's Riflebird or Brujin's Riflebird, perched on a branch. This bird is expertly detailed and colored, with multiple shades of indigo, violet, pink, turquoise and yellow. The detailing of the feathers is precise, from the small marks on the head and body to the elaborate yet well defined tail. This bird rests on a branch among leaves and berries, placing it within its natural New Guinea environment.

Dynamically illustrated, one bird is shown resting while the other is mid-flight, allowing for the fine detailing of the wings to be fully appreciated. The precise lines define the feathers and plumage of these Arfak Drongos and give them dimension. They are positioned high among the trees with well detailed foliage around them and birds flying in the distance.

        King Leopold II of Belgium signs a letter of state announcing the birth of his nephew, Prince Albert, later King Albert I. Leopold was considered one of the most brutal colonial rulers of all time for his policies in the Congo, in contrast to Albert, who spent all of World War I at the head of his army, and led the Allied offensive that recovered the Belgian coast

      Manuscript Letter Signed, "Leopold", one page, 6.75" X 8.75", written to the Bolivian President [Tomas Frias], announcing the birth of Prince Albert Leopold on the 8th of April, 1875. Folds, one inch tear in blank left margin, light marginal soiling, else fine condition.Leopold II, King of the Belgians, succeeded his father [Leopold I of Belgium] to the throne in 1865 and remained king until his death. Outside of Belgium, he is chiefly remembered as the founder and sole owner of the Congo Free State, a secret private enterprise scheme to extract rubber and ivory which was responsible for the death of an estimated 5-15 million Africans. King Albert I, born Albert Leopold Clément Marie Meinrad in Brussels, was the younger son of Philip, Count of Flanders, and succeeded his uncle, Leopold II of Belgium, on the throne on December 17, 1909. At the beginning of World War I, Albert resisted the German advance and held them off long enough for Britain and France to prepare for the Battle of the Marne (September 6 - 9, 1914). He led his army through the Battle of the Yser and at the end of the war back into its own territory. He re-entered Brussels to a hero's welcome. King Albert I was killed in a climbing accident at Marche-les-Dames, in the Ardennes region of Belgium near Namur.

        Recueil d'ornements et de sujets pour etre appliques a l'ornementation

      1875. CLAESEN, Charles. Recueil d'ornements et de sujets pour être appliqués á l'ornementation des Armes. Illustrated with a lithographic title and 40 lithographic plates, 6 being chromolithographs, including one double-page plate ("34 & 35") in full colour, and 5 plates folding. Large 4to., 352 x 268 mm, bound in recent three-quarter maroon morocco over contemporary Belgian pebble-grained cloth boards, later leather lettering piece on upper cover. Liège: chez Charles Claesen, [ca. 1856-58]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First printing of one of the most splendid illustrated books on gun decoration, illustrated throughout with gold-printed chromolithographs, copperplates and black and white lithographs, all documenting elaborately ornamented guns from the Renaissance through the Victorian era. The highly detailed ornament incorporates images of hunting dogs worked into the designs, as well as fowl, foliage, stags, scroll vines, etc. The delicately-detailed lithographs and copperplates reproduce gun-ornament on metal for the cock and side plaques, and on wood for the stocks and barrel fore-ends. The work was issued by the Belgian lithographer and later illustrated book publisher, Charles Claesen, who was active as a lithographer at Liège beginning in the early 1850s. He later founded his own publishing firm in 1893, the Societé C. Claesen & Co., which closed in 1898. "Dominating the production of Belgian architectural books in the late nineteenth century were the titles issued by Charles Claesen of Liège, successor to D. Avanzo et Compagnie. The latter firm had by the 1840s garnered a large market for such large-format issues as the Grands prix d'architecture: Projets couronnés par l'Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de France of 1842, a market that Claesen was further to exploit. Claesen personally kept up with and soon implemented the various improvements in the means of book (re)production as they were developed. Thus, if his typical issues of the 1860s were volumes of engraved plates (like his Spécimens de la décoration by Michel Liénard of 1866), those of the 1870s were collections of lithographs (like his Motifs de décoration extérieure et intérieure of the 1870s" (Alfred Willis, Belgian Architectural Book Publishing from the Nineteenth Century towards the Twenty-First). In Muquardt's Bibliographié de la Belgique 1857 it is recorded that already by 1857 the first two series of this publication were complete and available for purchase as single plates. He then states that an "ouvrage complet sera composé de 50 pl., et formera 4 séries annuelles qui se réunissent en 1 vol. ou se vendent séparément." Claesen never realized his plan of publishing the complete series of 50 plates; this volume containing 40 plates represents the full and final number of plates that he published on the subject. Volume rebacked, overall, a beautiful copy. PROVENANCE: M.A. Crowther with his ex-libris (possibly the early twentieth-century English author of books on English religion and social sciences); Edmond L. Lincoln with ex-libris. Thiébaud 205-206 ("Ouvrage couronné à l'Exposition des arts industriels de Bruxelles, 1856, et admis dans l'enseignement de l'Académie des beaux-arts de Liège").

        Four U.S. Infantry Photographs

      [Circa 1875]. Four black and white photographs, each measuring 6.75" x 4.5", mounted on stiff cardboard, measuring 6.5" x 5.5", with three holes in the left margins indicating they might once have been contained in a photo album. Two of the photos are somewhat faded at the edges, the mounts toned and with scattered spots, overall very good. The photos depict several groups of soldiers at their camp. Two photos show formal images of men posing before the camera and in full uniform. One has 34 men outside by tents standing and seated, several with pipes in hand and two mugging for the camera by posing like boxers, while the other photo is of a smaller group of six men with their rifles leaning together at the center. The other photos capture a group of soldiers holding a blanket and tossing another soldier in the air while others watch. The final images is of eight smiling men in various states of undress, in long underwear and one shirtless, lounging in a tent in a very relaxed and friendly manner with a black soldier at the center leaning next to a white soldier with casual ease.Our research suggests these photographs are of enlisted men from the 1st Regiment, U.S. Infantry taken in 1875 or shortly after, based on what appears to be uniformly worn five-button Sack Coats (first issued in 1874) and post-Civil War style forage caps (1872) and infantry insignia (1875). Despite a number of names written on a sign (seen in two of the photos), we have not been able to identify the particular company or any individual soldiers. We suspect a more careful examination of military records might yield more positive results. Still an interesting collection of original 19th Century photos including an endearing image of racial tolerance and companionship.1 .

        Gymnocrex Plumbeiventris (Grey-bellied Rail)

      London 1875 - 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 about to meet with the country’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, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While is Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented Birds of Asia. The Birds of New Guinea 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 Birds of New Guinea, 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 Birds of Paradise (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the Birds of New Guinea, which, like the Birds of Asia, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Gymnocrex Plumbeiventris, measures 14.75" x 21.5" and is in mint condition. The birds illustrated, commonly called Grey-bellied Rail's, are expertly hand-colored in shades of copper, brown and grey. The fine lines and detailing on this engraving is evident as the patterns and feathers on the rail's body are well defined. This Grey-bellied Rail is shown in a dynamic posture, pulling food from the ground. Two other Grey-bellied Rails are seen among the rocky background.

        Journey Across the Western Interior of Australia

      London: Samson, Low, Marston, Low & Searle, 1875. Octavo, frontispiece portrait, eight plates and a large folding map, 30 pp. publisher's advertisements dated February 1875, bookplate; an attractive copy in the original gilt-decorated green cloth. Warburton crosses from east to west. First edition of Warburton's enthralling narrative of his expedition from the Telegraph Line to the west coast, which won the race to cross the continent from east to west.Warburton beat Ernest Giles to the honour, but at a terrible cost. In the harsh Great Sandy Desert his expedition deteriorated into an endless search for water; within a few months half their camels were dead; provisions were low and much of their equipment had been lost; they could only travel by night in the intense summer heat. Warburton was blinded in one eye and so weak that he had to be carried prone on his camel. They reached the Oakover River just in time but even here they faced starvation and had to eat stewed camel hide while waiting for relief to arrive.As a result of the extreme hardship and malnutrition that he experienced, Warburton was unable to prepare his journals for publication. The scientific results were edited and arranged by eminent naturalists of the day, including Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker and John Gould, while the text of Warburton's journals was edited into a narrative by H.W. Bates of the Royal Geographical Society.
