        Head of Yellowstone River

      L. Prang and Co, Boston 1876 - Chromolithograph, on original card mount. Image size: 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches. Framed. Provenance: Zaplin Lampert Gallery (label on verso of frame). Thomas Moran's finest published work and a masterpiece of American chromolithography. This stunning view is based on Thomas Moran's work during Ferdinand V. Hayden's 1871 expedition to northwestern Wyoming, the first survey of what would become Yellowstone National Park. During that summer, Moran laid the basis for some of his most famous works rendered in watercolor, oil and here in chromolithograph. This series of fifteen plates, published in a portfolio titled The Yellowstone National Park and the Mountain Regions of Portions of Idaho, Nevada, Colorado and Utah , were the first to adequately depict the spectacular scenery of Yellowstone, and have long been considered the most skillful and striking prints of the park. Indeed, these images helped define the American West for much of the public. Louis Prang was the greatest color-printer of his day, and he declared this work his masterpiece. At the time of its production in 1876, it was certainly the most elaborate and successful work of chromolithographic printing undertaken in the United States. Printed on card using numerous lithographic stones to give incredible depth of color, the intended result was to give the prints the appearance of the original paintings. A contemporary review in The Nation declared the prints to bear remarkable likeness to the original watercolors, "an accuracy which we do not think could have been surpassed in any country." The review continues by praising Moran's artistic sense, "the boldness and facility of the drawing are really impressive." Another reviewer termed the work "a genuine triumph of American graphic art." Moran himself praised Prang's efforts, writing to him in 1876: "It is in every respect a most sumptuous & magnificent work.It seems to me that Chromo-Lithography has, in your hands, attained perfection so skillfully have you reproduced every shade and tone of color of the originals." The work's publication marked "the beginning of [Prang's] dominance of the finest American chromolithographic work in the last quarter of the century" (Reese). Bennett concurs, writing, the book is "marvelously reproduced.hand work could never give the effect of perspective and distance achieved in the towering scenes reproduced here." McClinton declares Prang's work to be a "monument of American bookmaking" and the "prints have never been surpassed as examples of the best American chromolithography.unexcelled among illustrations of the Far West." Kinsey aptly sums up Moran's efforts: "Had he done nothing else, Moran would be remembered for this series, which remains a landmark in publishing history."

        Benedetta Ernestina Maria, Prinzessin von Modena. Nach einem Gemälde von Rosalba Carriera (1675-1757), Staatl. Kunstsammlungen Dresden.

      . Pastell und Aquarell, über Kohle, mit Deckweiß gehöht, auf beigem Zeichenkarton. 56,9:45,8 cm. Provenienz: Nachlaß Friedrich Schmöle.. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann Fr.Ph. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Laut einer überlieferten schriftlichen Anmerkung der Künstlerin war sie in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878). Die vorwiegend als Porträtmalerin tätige Venezianerin Rosalba Carriera hatte die Technik der Pastellmalerei insofern weiterentwickelt, als sie Porträts schuf, die ganz dem Zeitgeschmack des Rokoko entsprachen und sich großer Beliebtheit erfreuten. Der nahezu unbekannten Mathilde Schmöle gelang es mit diesem Blatt auf hervorragende Weise Carrieras Darstellungsmittel nachzuempfinden, wie eine elegante, jedoch zugleich bescheidene Erscheinung und lebendige Ausdruckskraft der Gesichtszüge.

Wolff's collation calls for an extra prelim in volume one not present here (with no signs of removal), cloth very faded and worn at the spine and edges, with some rubbing and soiling, Massingham's labels on upper boards, with related bookplates, internally good. First edition of this rare collection of fiction, edited for posthumous publication, with a memoir of the author, by William M. Rossetti and F. Hueffer. Wolff comments that the "death at nineteen of this brilliantly versatile and precocious artist and novelist, son of Ford Madox Brown, and brother-in- law of William Michael Rossetti and Francis Hueffer, deeply distressed the boy's father and all the brethren of the pre-Raphaelite movement. Both his books are rare." WOLFF 880.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia

      Glasgow: privately printed, n.d. but, 1876. Octavo, photographic frontispiece, eight lithograph plates and four folding lithograph maps and another map in the text; fine bright green original cloth, gilt. A presentation copy from the editor, James R. Napier, to A.G. MacDonald (dated 7August 1876).Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Cadell. They were searching for suitable sites for settlement on the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory). The expedition departed from Newcastle, New South Wales calling at Brisbane and travelling on to Cape York Peninsula. From Cape York it crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Liverpool River, surveying that river and exploring the coast for about one hundred miles east and west of it. The expedition then returned to Burke Town on the Albert River, at the head of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and passing through Cadell Strait, and along the west coast of the Gulf, remaining some time at Maria Island… It discovered the entrance to the Roper River, from the Roper it returned to the Liverpool river, thence sailing westwards to Mount Norris Bay, Adam's Bay, and Victoria River, in search of fuel, food and water. The Notes outline the discoveries of the voyage including the entrance to the Roper River. These notes - which provide the only public account of the expedition - were compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. A beautiful copy of a very rare book.

        "French Creek Canyon, Black Hill, D.T.," a watercolor showing the sheer canyon walls, from top to bottom, with the boulder-strewn stream below amid stands of pine and hardwood. Black Hills, Dakota Territory, 1875 or 1876

      Original watercolor, 9 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches, title, as above, written below the image, inscribed on the verso (visible in the frame): "To Col. Charles Bird / Adjt. 23rd Infty. / With compliments of / J.E.H. Foster / Lt. 3d Cavalry / Feby 12th 1876." The watercolor itself was probably painted in July, 1875, or soon thereafter (given the absence of snow, it was almost certainly accomplished before the 1875-1876 winter set in, i.e., before the 12 February 1876 inscription), when Foster was engaged under Col. Richard I. Dodge in exploring and mapping French Creek. Foster (1848-1883) entered military service toward the end of the Civil War and earned his commission as a 2nd lieutenant in 1873 (for a short biographical sketch, see "Encyclopedia of Frontier Biography," vol. I, p. 511). Col. Charles Bird (1839- 1930), the recipient, served in the Civil War, receiving notices for gallant and meritorious service at Fredericksburg, Spottsylvania, and Petersburg, beginning the conflict as 2nd lieutenant and ending as a colonel and regimental commander. In 1876 he was in the West serving as Regimental Adjutant of the 23rd Infantry and he continued his long service in the army until 1902 when he retired as a brigadier general. Fine. Matted glazed and framed (some scuffing to the frame). (#6004) An attractive, on-the-spot rendering of a site central to the events leading up to Lt. Col. George A Custer's fatal 1876 expedition. Painted in the summer of 1875, by an officer with the 3rd Cavalry, a topographical surveyor and draughtsman and a competent watercolorist, who served in the Black Hills Expedition during the summer of 1875, under Col. Dodge. It was the discovery of gold at French Creek during Custer's Black Hills expedition in the summer of 1874, and its official confirmation during Dodge's expedition in 1875, that set the Sioux on a rampage that led to the Great Sioux War of 1876 and Custer's defeat at Little Big Horn. Today the portion of French Creek depicted here is part of the 2200 acre French Creek Natural Area. At the time of the painting it was the site of two Black Hills Expedition encampments, Custer City and Camp Harney. Col. Dodge and his men, including Lt. Foster as his topographical officer, left Camp Jenny, on Beaver Creek, on June 9th, 1875, and reached Harney Peak at French Creek on June 13th. Four days later Dodge sent a telegram to General Crook: "Harney's Peack, June 17. Gold has been found in paying quantities on French Creek. Custer's report is confirmed in every particular." Once released to the press, the news brought the arrival of more gold seekers, aggravating the situation with the Sioux. On July 10, 1875, a note from Foter informed Dodge that "signs of Indians were everywhere in the vicinity he was surveying ... on July 15 Dodge pronounced as more than acceptable another map, by Second Lieut. Foster, of a scout he had just completed ... building on the work of Bourke, he and his two subalterns were on course to produce a visualization of the Black Hills topography that he thought would equal in merit any simialr image extant" (Wayne Kin's "Col. Richard Irving Dodge: The Life and Times of a Career Army Officer," U. of Oklahoma Press, 2006, pp. 206-211). In December 1875 the Sioux were ordered to return to the confines of the reservation by the following January 31st; they chose to ignore the deadline and the Great Sioux War ensued. The presentation inscription on this watercolor is dated barely two weeks after the deadline and must have been made shortly before Foster departed camp with his unit to fight the Sioux. Foster's artistic talents were also employed during the 1876 campaign. On June 12, 1876, five days before the Battle of the Rosebud and a week before Little Big Horn, First Lt. John G. Bourke, also of the 3rd Cavalry, wrote: "Lieut. Foster, 3d Cavalry, has made a series of creditable, rough pencil sketches of points of interest along the route: it is his intention to send them to 'Harper' Weekly' for publication" ("Diaries of John Gregory Bourke," edited by Charles M. Robinson, 2003-2010, vol. I, p. 308). Foster fought heroically on the Rosebud: "Captain Henry's battalion was soon exposed to heavy enfilading fire that was only checked by a brilliant charge made by Lieutenant Foster ... at the head of his platoon" (Henry R. Lemly "Fighting the Indians," in "The Papers of the Order of Indian Wars," edited by J.M. Carrol, Old Army Press, 1975, pp. 13- 18). We have been unable to trace any of Foster's sketches in "Harper's Weekly," but his work is included in the collections at the Museum of Nebraska Art.

        Daniel Deronda

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1876. Four Volumes. First book edition. Contemporary half-calf & green cloth, all edges marbled, spines titled in gilt on panels of red. The inner front covers of all four volumes bear the decorative armorial bookplate of Joseph Needham, M.B., Assistant Professor of Anatomy, University of Aberdeen [the father, we believe, of the noted 20th century British scientist Joseph Needham]; all volumes also bear the binder's ticket from A. Brown & Co., Aberdeen. Splitting along the lower rear hinge of Volume 1, moderate scuffing and wear to the leather corners and edges, some inner hinges are cracking, but all are intact; in general quite a handsome set, the spines titled in script. This copy conforms to the first issue as described in Sadleir 813a; all four volumes have the initial signature of 4 leaves, not 6 as in the second issue. Also (though not mentioned by Sadleir) the misprint is present on page 83 of Volume I: ("reponsive" for "responsive"). It is bound without the erratum slip in Volume III, and without the final ad leaf in Volume IV. Half-title leaves are present in all 4 volumes. The book was first issued in paperbound parts, and most bound copies which surface are comprised of those parts bound-up; this copy is the first book edition, not bound from parts. An attractive copy of this significant novel.
