SAVILL, John Eden
1876. The uniform series, in watercolour and pencil on brown paper, are matted behind glass in modern frames; visible image size is 240 × 338 mm in all instances. The brown paper has darkened over time, possibly caused by the original card mounts, or exposure to light; apart from a few trifling surface marks to the plain upper portions of two items, and a few tiny light spots (possibly caused by impurities in the old mounts), the paintings are in fine condition. Three of them are signed 'J. Eden Savill' (and two of these are dated 1876); the fourth painting is unsigned. John Eden Savill (circa 1847-1920) 'was an Englishman who had a short but successful career in South Australia as a racehorse owner and trainer, culminating in his horse winning the 1882 Melbourne Cup. He arrived in Adelaide sometime before 1871, when he was, as "Cerberus", drawing political cartoons for "The Portonian", a weekly satirical newspaper, and was also exhibiting his artwork. Shortly after his 1882 triumph with "The Assyrian", Savill and family left for England' and he did not return to Australia (Wikipedia, providing ample substantiation). His identity and activities were not known to Joan Kerr when she published her comprehensive 'Dictionary of Australian Artists' in 1991. That same year, the only example of his work to appear in the even more comprehensive records of Australian art auctions was offered by Christies Australia - in May (unsold at $1500-2000), and again in September, when it sold for $1650, with a reduced estimate of $1000-1500. That painting, 'Australian Kangaroo Hunt', was simil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scott, James Renat, F.S. A
J R Scott, F.S.A, London. This rare book is 1st edition of a privately printed and published book of 1876; it is a fascinating record of a particular and ancient family, now widespread throughout the English-speaking world. Its incredibly heavily researched and fascinating contents include:1. Origin and antiquity of the name of Scott. 2.Origin of the Family of Scott of Scot's Hall. 3.Particulars connected with the earlier history and descent of the Scott Family. 4. Description and Memorials of Brabourne Church, Kent. 5.History of the Royal Manor of Brabourne, Kent. 6. Biography of the family of Scott of Scot's Hall, Kent. At one time the family owned vast amounts of land in the South East of England. There was a time when one could "ride from Scot's Hall to London without leaving Scott property," a journey of over 50 miles and the house was well-known to Samuel Pepys. Bonhams, the auctioneers, say that they only know of 8 copies and those are all in public collections, amongst them: the National Library of Scotland, the Royal Collection and Balliol College, Oxford some American Universities also have a copy. It is unknown how many copies were originally printed. It's a large and very heavy book of some 266 pages with an appendix of another 82. It is beautifully illustrated with small prints, coats of arms, etc. This copy has wear to all edges and corners. There is only the lightest of foxing and that is occasional but some of the pages have worn and age-darkeneed edges. There are one or two pencilled annotations only and a tiny pencil sketch of woman's face - 20th century. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leopold Voss, Leipzig, 1876. 4to (255 x 195 mm). vii [1], 165, [3] pp. With 21 mount photo-mechanical plates ("Lichtdruck") on 19 leaves; 2 lithographed plates (1 in color); wood engravings in text. Original publishers printed boards and cloth spine (boards rubbed and age-toned, cloth at joints partly split and frayed, corners slightly scuffed). Text and plates little age-toned, occasional foxing (some plates stronger). ---- Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall, 20 (for 1st ed.) FIRST GERMAN EDITION. "Nasmyth was brought up in an artistic family, made a fortune as a manufacturer and inventor, and retired to take up astronomy. He built his own 20" reflector in 1842 (inventing the Nasmyth focus in the process), and began to concentrate on lunar studies. Nasmyth brought photography to the aid of selenography in an unusual manner. Since photography was not yet advanced enough to take photographs of lunar details, Nasmyth constructed plaster models based on visual observations, and then photographed the models. For this book, the photographs were then printed by the arduous Woodburytype process, perhaps the most faithful method ever devised for the reproduction of photographs. The Woodburytype has no grain whatsoever, because it does not use cracks or dots to reproduce tone. Instead, a relief mold is made of the image in lead, so that the areas of dark tone are deep and light tone shallow. Ink suspended in gelatin is cast in the mold, and the resulting print produces contrast by the thickness or thinness of the ink" (Ashworth). - Visit our website to see more images!

Neville, who wrote under the name Neison, published the first observer's guide to the moon written in English, and it is still one of the best. It contains a wealth of detail on more than 500 named features, as well as a map in 22 sections, to the scale of 24" to the moon's diameter. The map is not entirely original, being based on that of Beer and Mädler, but it is much easier to use than the original. In addition to the map, there are several enlarged drawings of craters of special interest, such as Gassendi and Maginus, and five chromolithographs to show the effect of changing illumination on the lunar landscape (Ashworth). - Visit our website to see more images!

With Portraits, Making A Complete Rogues' Gallery, by Phil. Farley, Detective. Published by the author in 1876. This is a first edition hardcover book measuring about 9" x 6" with 638 pages. The date on the copyright page is 1875 and the date on the title page is 1876. The title page also says Author's Edition, which means that Philip Farley published the book himself.

The Woodburytype has no grain whatsoever, because it does not use cracks or dots to reproduce tone. Instead, a relief mold is made of the image in lead, so that the areas of dark tone are deep and light tone shallow. Ink suspended in gelatin is cast in the mold, and the resulting print produces contrast by the t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Carroll, Lewis (Dodgson, Charles)
London: Macmillan and Co, 1876. Henry Holiday. Hard Cover. First Edition. Very Good. Illustrated by Henry Holiday. First edition, first printing, with "baker" on page 83 and a single leaf of publisher's advertisement. Publisher's decorative light tan boards with illustrations by Holiday in black, lettered in black. A very good copy, with some wear and light fraying to spine ends, corners lightly worn, some faint evidence of an early glue repair to the lower spine, otherwise a bright, sturdy and fresh attractive copy. In this poem, Carroll returns to the setting of "Jabberwocky," the nonsense poem that was published as part of his 1872 novel Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There. Specifically, "The Hunting of the Snark" tells the story of ten sailors, each of whose name begins with the letter B, who are in search of a fearsome creature known as the "snark" which they fear may be an especially dangerous sort known as a "boojum." Like "Jabberwocky," this poem is filled with fantastical adventures, impossible scenarios, and gibberish words. [Attributes: First Edition]

NEW YORK CITY, HAVENSTAD IN DE TIJD VAN GROTE EUROPESE IMMIGRATIE"New York from Bergen Hill: Hoboken", fraaie grote houtgravure vervaardigd door Robert Loudon naar een tekening van Thoman Sulman, uitgegeven in 1876 als "extra supplement"? bij de Illustrated London News.? Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 49 x 115 cm (lijst: 70 x 140 cm).1876, 12 jaar na het einde van de Burgeroorlog, is het jaar dat de Verenigde Staten haar honderd jarig bestaan vieren. In dat zelfde jaar patenteert Alexander Graham Bell zijn uitvinding: de telefoon. New York City groeit door de grote stroom immigranten sterk en heeft inmiddels ruim een miljoen inwoners.Hier zien we New York City vanaf Bergen Hill, New Jersey en kijken we uit over Manhattan, Brooklyn en Queens. Het Central Park krijgt vorm temidden van de stedelijke uitbreiding richting Upper East Side en Upper West Side. New York is een drukke haven met een grote verscheidenheid aan boten in de rivier de Hudson en de East River. Inmiddels zijn twee torens aan de weerszijden van de East River gebouwd, het zijn de pijlers van de Brooklyn Bridge die in 1883 geopend wordt.The Illustrated London News was 's werelds eerste, wekelijks verschijnende, ge?llustreerde krant. De illustraties zijn afdrukken gemaakt van houtblokken van ongeveer 13 x 30 cm. Bij de grotere afbeeldingen, zoals deze van New York, werden een aantal houtblokken aan elkaar geschroefd waarop de kunstenaar een tekening maakte. Vervolgens werd het geheel weer uit elkaar geschroefd en konden verschillende graveurs tegelijkertijd het hout bewerken. Het houten blok werd daarb … [Click Below for Full Description]
