        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."

        Department of the Interior General Land Office. Geographical and Political Atlas of the States and Territories of the United States of America in which the Public Land Surveys are now in operation. S.S.Burdett Commissioner

      General Land Office [printed in New York by Julius Bien, lithographer], Washington, D.C. 1876 - Expertly bound to style in dark brown half morocco over period plain paper covered boards, original brown morocco label on the upper cover Provenance: Richard J. Oglesby, U.S. Senator from Illinois (name in gilt on morocco label on upper cover) The first official United States atlas of public lands in the American West: a roadmap to western migration and homesteading: with important provenance to Senator J. R. Ogelsby, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Lands. The General Land Office was founded in 1812 as an independent government agency responsible for the surveying and disposition of land in the public domain. Prior to the Civil War, much of the attention of the GLO was fixed on the settlement of such land east of the Mississippi which had resulted from military bounties and cessations by the original thirteen states. The end of the Civil War, the Homestead Act, the completion of the Trans-Continental Railroad and the military campaigns against Native Americans in the West (with resulting treaties that transferred land ownership to the United States), together engendered an incredible increase in westward settement and expansion. Newly-admitted states and newly-created territories west of the Mississippi were primed for settlement. Between 1866 and 1876, the GLO surveyed over 200,000,000 acres of land in the public domain for settlement in New Mexico, Idaho, Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming and elsewhere. As the official surveyors of these remote areas, and with access to military information, the maps of the General Land Office were far and away the most accurate and detailed of the western states and territories published to that time. Indeed, these large-scale official maps became the basis for future maps of those regions by commerical cartographers. In 1876, the GLO, headed by S.S. Burdett, published the present atlas containing 18 maps (on 19 sheets, California being on two sheets), showing the regions of the United States with newly surveyed and plotted public lands. The maps were composed by the chief draughtsman in the GLO, Charles Roeser, Jr. The maps are done on a large scale and are consequently very detailed. Chromolithographed by Julius Bien, each map is colour coded to clearly depict land plotted for settlement, the locations of the general land offices, Indian territories, county divisions, towns, rivers, roads, railroads, etc. Although the GLO had issued individual maps of the United States to accompany their annual report in 1866 and 1868, the Geographical and Political Atlas of the States and Territories was the first atlas to be published by the department.

        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.

      London: Ward, Lock & Tyler, 1876. Verne, Jules. TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA. London: Ward, Lock & Co, [1876].

Each section has its own frontispiece, title page, table of contents, and separate pagination. According to the ad found on the verso of the first title page, this volume was part of a long Jules Verne reprint series done almost exclusively in pictorial wrappers, with only two titles billed as being also available in cloth as a "Double Volume." Super eye appeal, especially for a book which is nearly 140 years old.. Decorative Cloth. Fine.
