        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, (1875). Aus zwei Teilen zusammengesetztes Plakat, der schmale obere Teil auf lilafarbenem Papier mit Adresse des Veranstalters Francois Loisset. Blattgr.: 88 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". - Tls. etwas knittrig. Eine Faltung gerissen. Bücher de

        Christian Martyrs; Reign of Diocletian Rome A.D. 303

      Dore Gallery, London 1875 - Print. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 24" x 32.25" This stunning scene is based on the celebrated painting by the famous French artist Paul Gustave Dore. This engraving, titled "Christian Martyrs, Reign of Diocletian Rome AD 303", depicts a gruesome scene in an amphitheater in Rome. Lions feast and prowl over the corpses of the martyrs, some still clutching crosses in their hands. The seats of the amphitheater are empty and in shadow. Above the martyrs, angels look down with tenderness and compassion, come to bear off the spirits of the martyrs. The print is in very good condition with minor cracks along margins. Mounted on linen. The print was engraved by Herbert Bourne and published by Fairless and Beeforth, Dore Gallery. Paul Gustav Dore was a French artist, printmaker and illustrator. He became one of the most famous illustrators of the 19th century with his detailed illustrations for the English Bible. His work also appeared in the Illustrated London News. This is a beautiful example of his work.

Sämtliche Graphiken unter Passepartout und von Dreher (1875-1932) signiert.

Die Mappe weist außen Flecken auf, kleine Einrisse an den Umklappen, insgesamt aber gutes Exemplar. Good copy with 10 handsigned graphics. Richard Dreher wuchs als ältestes von fünf Kindern in ärmlichen Verhältnissen in Dresden auf. Als er 14 Jahre alt war, begann er eine Lehre bei einem Dresdener Lithografen. 1892 wechselte er zu einem Berliner Lithografen und wurde später Retuscheur bei einem Fotografen. Während dieser Zeit beschäftigte er sich vermehrt mit Kunst und lernte 1895 Gerhart Hauptmann kennen. Bei einem Aufenthalt in Hamburg entschied er, sich nur noch der Kunst zu widmen. 1903 nahm er an Kunstausstellungen in Berlin und Dresden teil. Im folgenden Jahr zog er mit seiner Familie nach Rockau, wo er hauptsächlich Elblandschaften malte. Er nahm weiterhin an Ausstellungen teil und erhielt 1908 den Villa-Romana-Preis des Deutschen Künstlerbundes. Der einsetzende Erfolg ermöglichte es Richard Dreher, mit seiner Familie ein Jahr in Florenz und in Forte dei Marmi in der Nähe von Pisa zu verbringen. Auch danach stellt er weiter mit Erfolg aus, zum Beispiel bei der Galerie Ernst Arnold und bei Paul Cassirer. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg unternahm er Studienreisen nach Dänemark, Südfrankreich, Rom und in die Toskana. Er kaufte 1915, nachdem er ein zweites Mal geheiratet hat, ein Haus in Elbersdorf. Weil er keinen Militärdienst leisten musste, konnte er sich auch während des Krieges weiter mit der Kunst befassen. Nach Kriegsende ging er 1919 als Professor für Malerei an die Kunstakademie Dresden und unterrichtete dort unter anderem Wilhelm Lachnit und Otto Garten. 1924 fuhr er erneut auf Studienreise nach Italien. Dreher zog sich zunehmend aus gesundheitlichen Gründen aus der Öffentlichkeit zurück. Von 1927 bis zu seinem Tod 1932 wohnte er im Wasserpalais des Pillnitzer Schlosses. (Quelle: Wikipedia)

        Munia Forbesi (Forbes's Munia)

      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 able 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 in 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 “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 “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, Munia Forbesi, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. Commonly called Forbes's Munia, these birds are expertly hand-colored in rich shades of brown with black heads and under the tail feathers. These birds are illustrated perched on stems with delicate delicate flowers that one bird nibbles on. The precise lines and detailing on these birds defines their feathers and their coloring gives them added dimension.

        The Last Journals of David Livingstone, in Central Africa from Eighteen Hundred and Sixty-Five to his Death. Continued by a Narrative of His Last Moments and Sufferings, obtained from his faithful servants Chuma and Susi

      New York: Harper & Brothers , 1875 541+[4 ad] pages with frontispiece portrait, 2 maps (including folding pocket map), 21 full page and 25 smaller illustrations. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") issued in green cloth with gilt lettering on spine and gilt pictorial on cover and spine with blind stamped rule to cover edges, edges beveled. Edited by Horace Waller. First published in London by John Murray in 1874. 1st American edition. Dr David Livingstone (19 March 1813 1 May 1873) was a British Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society and explorer in central Africa. He was the first European to see Mosi-oa-Tunya (Victoria Falls), to which he gave the English name in honour of his monarch, Queen Victoria. He is the subject of the meeting with H. M. Stanley, which gave rise to the popular quotation, "Dr Livingstone, I presume?" Perhaps one of the most popular national heroes of the late-nineteenth century in Victorian Britain, Livingstone had a mythic status, which operated on a number of interconnected levels: that of Protestant missionary martyr, that of working-class "rags to riches" inspirational story, that of scientific investigator and explorer, that of imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader and advocate of commercial empire. His fame as an explorer helped drive forward the obsession with discovering the sources of the Nile River that formed the culmination of the classic period of European geographical discovery and colonial penetration of the African continent. At the same time his missionary travels, "disappearance" and death in Africa, and subsequent glorification as posthumous national hero in 1874 led to the founding of several major central African Christian missionary initiatives carried forward in the era of the European "Scramble for Africa." Condition: Shelf wear, head and heal of spine rubbed, frayed and chipped, slight rubbing along front hinge, small sticker removed from pack pocket else a very good copy. . First American Edition. Original Cloth. Very Good. Royal octavo.
