Page titled Planches, list of contents, title and a total of 200 engraved plates, 130 of which are chromolithographs and 48 tinted lithographs. Bookplate of Arnold & Janetta Whitridge at top right of title pages. Beautifully bound, morocco spines with gilt lettering, with 'pinhead' cloth covers. The plates in an extremely clean state of preservation, with bright unfaded colors. Very scarce first edition of this splendid, unsurpassed standard work on Islamic art. Prisse d'Avennes spent many years in Egypt after 1826, first as an engineer in the service of Mehmet Ali. After 1836 he explored Egypt disguised as an Arab and using the name Edris Effendi; during this period he carried out archaeological excavations in the valley of the Nile. In 1860, Prisse d'Avennes returned to France with a wealth of documentation and drawings, which he subsequently had reproduced by specially trained draughtsmen and published in this monumental set. "'Arab Art', however, is more than a monument to the author's tenacity, skill, and devotion. For the historian of architecture, it is a precise source, a unique documentary record. On an entirely different level, Prisse d'Avennes has provided today's architects, designers, artists, and illustrators with some of the finest examples of measured drawings, pattern details, and i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Omohundro, J.B. [i.e. "Texas Jack"]
[St. Louis]: Globe-Democrat Job Print, 1877. Letterpress handbill, 9 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, printed on yellow paper. Minor edge wear and dust-soiling. Near fine. A rare handbill advertising an early stage performance of John Baker "Texas Jack" Omohundro and his troupe in St. Louis. The playbill announces a Saturday matinee performance by Texas Jack, as well as "The Great Chief and Scout Donald McKay and His Warm Spring Indians!" This is followed by a performance of Omohundro's wife, "The Peerless Morlacchi, Miss Maude Oswald," along with a "full Dramatic Company, in the great Border Drama Texas Jack in the Black Hills!" The handbill ends with notice of a Friday evening "Benefit of Texas Jack Prior to his departure for the Plains" on May 11. Texas Jack was a legendary figure of the American Old West. Born in Virginia, he moved to Texas and became a cowboy before serving as a scout for J.E.B. Stuart's Confederate forces during the Civil War. After the war, Texas Jack turned to buffalo scouting and hunting, befriended "Buffalo Bill" Cody, fought in skirmishes with Native Americans, and led buffalo hunts with various royalty and celebrities, including the Grand Duke Alexis in 1872. That same year, Texas Jack and Cody performed in the melodrama, THE SCOUTS OF THE PRAIRIES in Chicago, in which Texas Jack became the first actor to perform cowboy-style rope tricks on the stage. He married Italian-American dancer and performer Giuseppina Morlacchi the next year and continued to hunt the Great Plains and perform in Wild West shows on the East Coast until his early death at the age … [Click Below for Full Description]

TAGORE, Sourindro Mohun (Saurindra Mohana THAKURA).
[4], xii, 163, [1 blank] pp.Second (expanded) edition of a collection of 44 numbered songs, each devoted to a different realm in the British Empire, first published to celebrate Queen Victoria's assumption of the title Empress of India on 1 January 1877. Tagore wrote the verses in Sanskrit and adapted the music from national songs of the various realms. Each song appears on the versos set in Devanagri type with the music in a pioneering Indian notation (explained in the 6-page "Elementary rules for the Hindu musical notation"), and on the facing recto transcribed in roman type with the music in the Western notation. Sourindro Mohun Tagore (1840-1914) came from one of the leading artistic families in Calcutta. Well versed in traditional Indian music from his youth, he became a patron of Bengali and Hindu music but also studied Western music and became an internationally known musicologist. Tagore promoted and further developed new Indian musical notation systems introduced by Kshetra Mohan Goswami.In fine condition. The binding in very good condition, with only minor wear, mostly at the extremities. A fascinating work, especially interesting for its pioneering Indian musical notation and its images of Indian music instruments, produced in Calcutta.l WorldCat (5? copies); for Tagore and his musical notation: M.

[Nevada]. [Railroads]
[Carson City, Nv, 1877. Good plus.. 246 leaves. Oblong octavo. Original quarter cloth and marbled boards. Spine and edges somewhat worn; text block cocked. Internally clean. A fascinating manuscript receipt book that documents the types and amounts of freight carried by the Virginia & Truckee Railroad during the first half of May 1877. The railroad, completed in January 1870, was built between Virginia City and Carson City to serve the mines of the Comstock Lode, and carried a vast amount of freight between the hub of the Nevada mining boom and the state capital. At the peak of the bonanza in 1876 and 1877, twenty-two V&T locomotives and 361 freight cars transported over 400,000 tons of freight per month, running thirty to forty-five trains per day. The present register dates to the latter portion of this period, and well demonstrates the variety and volume of materials that were hauled along this twenty-one mile section of track. The railroad carried lumber, coal oil, ore bags, tin ware, flour, butter, liquor, cigars -- in short, everything that was needed to keep the Comstock boom towns booming. Each leaf of this log, which contains over 245 entries for the period of May 1st to the 17th, registers the type of freight being shipped, its weight, its consignee, its place of origin, the V&T car number that carried the load, and the total charges for the shipment. An excellent document of this Nevada railroad that played a critical role in the state's mining industry.

BEM, Elizaveta Merkurievna (illustrator)].
Felten Skt. Peterburg ; 1878, 1877. Two landscape portfolios (27.7 x 35 cm). Complete with 12 unnumbered plates and 8 lithographed plates accordingly, loose as issued. Both in publisher's illustrated wrappers; small marginal tears, spine of "Sketches from Children's Lives" split. Two early series of illustrations 'in silhouette' technique by one of the most celebrated Russian illustrators of children's literature. A silhouette portrait was brought to Russian by French artists in the XVIII century and gained tremendous popularity at the court of Catherine II. The traditional method of creating silhouette portraits was to cut them from lightweight black cardboard, and mount them on a pale background. Elizaveta Bem (1843 – 1914), who completed her studies at the Drawing school of artists encouragement in Saint Petersburg, developed her own approach to this traditional art. She used lithography – a technique that allowed her to achieve maximally detailed depiction of her subjects. Her first album titled simply "Silhouettes" was published in 1875 at the lithography studio of Il'in, her uncle. Encouraged by its success, Bem created "Sketches from Children's Lives" two years later, which was followed by many more albums in the same technique. For her work Bem received multiple awards at Russian, as well as international exhibitions. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

BREUIL, Henri, Mary BOYLE and Dr. E.R. SCHERZ.
X, 31, [1 blank], [1], [1 blank] pp.First edition of a work on the so-called "White Lady", a painting on a rock face near the foot of Brandberg mountain in Namibia, written by the French archaeologist Abbé Henri Édouard Prosper Breuil (1877-1961), with a presentation inscription to his collaborator Mary Boyle. The present copy is one of the 100 signed copies (no. 90) on rag paper. The rock painting was excavated in 1918 by Reinhard Maack and is today believed to have been made around 2000 years ago. The present text deals with the presumed origin of the painting and the researchers' excavation methods. It is usually assumed that the painting shows some sort of ritual dance, and that the "White Lady" is a (male) shaman, but the painting has long been an archaeological dilemma. It was Breuil who coined the name "White Lady" and suggested a relation to paintings at Knossos (Crete). The coloured plates show the entire "White Lady" as well as details, followed by photos of the researchers and the rock painting.With on the half-title a presentation inscription by the author to Mary Boyle his life-long companion, who collaborated in the writing and publication of the book. Today, her technically competent translations, her contemporary monographs as well as hundreds of her coloured petroglyph and rock art drawings are recognised as foundational to modern rock art research. A few faint stains, otherwise in very good condition.

[Diary] [Women's Social History] Manda Smith
Waterloo, Iowa, 1877. Small pocket diary measuring 2 x 4". Comprised of 55 handwritten pages and two inserts (a one page purchase order and a tiny, homemade ledger of 9 pages); 65 pages of content in all. Ownership signature and bookseller's stamp to front endpaper. Tracking her days across the year of 1877, Manda Smith can give researchers insight into the family and social lives of women who worked to support themselves and assist their families. Though we've been unable to locate Manda Smith and determine her exact age, the prose and content of this diary suggest that she is in her late teens or twenties -- a young woman still living at home with family, attending Sunday school, taking singing lessons, and attending meetings at the local lodge with aunts, uncles, and cousins who live nearby. As a resident of Iowa, Manda was living at an exciting time in the state's political history, as the women's suffrage movement began to take root. It's likely that further research could determine if some of the community meetings she mentions attending were related to the movement -- certainly she was interested in temperance, as she mentions Drunkard Meetings and their role in the community. But for Manda, employment takes up the bulk of her days. She reports on working at a nearby mill in Waterloo during certain times of year; and all year long, she takes in knitting and sock-making to support herself. In addition to noting the days she knits and mentioning her projects, she also keeps a small, hand-stitched ledger tucked into the journal; this 9 page piece tracks the project … [Click Below for Full Description]

FILLMAN, SCOTT
N.P.: 1877 & 1878., 1877 & 1878. N.P.: 1877 & 1878., 1877 & 1878. First edition. Unpublished, enclosed in decorative boxed sleeve.Two original 1877 and 1878 manuscript diaries handwritten by Scott Fillman of Reidsville, North Carolina. Scott, the son of a successful tobacco plantation owner, was 13 years old when he wrote in the first diary and in both of the diaries he details life living on his father, William's plantation. Casual research finds this note regarding the family: "William Fillman of Reidsville North Carolina came to this region about 11 years ago and bought 800 acres of land near Reidsville. He has sold about half of the property and does not personally attend to the cultivation of the balance as he built a house in the village and is mainly dealing in tobacco." We also note that Scott married Cornelia Scales and they had a son Scott Jr. who was born in 1911 but sadly died 9 years later in 1920. Throughout the journal are mentions of weather, daily work to include cutting wood, shelling corn, cutting sprouts off potatoes, driving cows, feeding hogs, watering flowers, cleaning the cellar and woodshed, washing dishes, regulating the dining room, reading, writing, playing ball, visiting neighbors, attempting to sell goods in town, etc. Working the tobacco fields as well as cutting, curing, housing the tobacco are a constant presence in the diary as well as harvesting and hauling brick. Some snippets include: 1877 "13 years old. I attended a dance the night before. Saw them dance the 'Old Year' out and the 'New Year' in.
