Ein weiterer Mitbegründer der Kronberger Malerkolonie, J.F. Dielmann (1809-1885), mit dem er freundschaftlich verbunden war, riet ihm in Düsseldorf weiterzustudieren. 1881-1887 setzte er seine Studien an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie bei E. von Gebhardt (1838-1925) und E. Dücker (1841-1916) fort. 1888-1890 folgte ein Würzburg-Aufenthalt. Anschließend legte er an der Königlichen Zeichenschule in Berlin die Prüfung als Zeichenlehrer ab. 1891/92 hatte er eine erste Lehrestelle in Halle/Saale. 1892 wurde er als Lehrer an die Staatliche Kunstschule Berlin berufen, 1898 folgte die Berufung zum Professor, 1915-1930 war er dort Direktor. Zwischen 1915 und 1939 unternahm er zahlreiche kleinere Reisen nach Kronberg. 1898 war er Mitbegründer der Berliner Sezession, deren Ausstellungen er regelmäßig beschickte. 1919 wurde er Mitglied der Preußischen Akademie. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er eng mit Max Liebermann (1847-1935) zusammen und wird zum Kreis um L. Corinth (1858-1935) gezählt. Philipp Franck, der eine grundlegende Reform des Zeichenunterrichts in Preußen durchsetzte, verfaßte hierzu zwei Handbücher für den Zeichen- und Kunstunterricht.

        Porträt Marie Grünewald, Ganzfigur auf einem Stuhl sitzend.

      1877 1877 - Bleistift, auf Velin, rechts unten datiert „1877", auf Untersatz montiert und dort bezeichnet „Marie Grünewald / war mit Math. Loretz in Weimar bei Preller". 24:16,7 cm. Provenienz: Nachlaß Friedrich Schmöle. Die schriftliche Anmerkung der Künstlerin läßt den Schluß zu, daß Mathilde Schmöle in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878) war. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann F.P. 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. Über die Mitschülerin Marie Grünewald sind keine weiteren Informationen überliefert.

        THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, or What Alice Found There (PRESENTATION COPY) Alice in Wonderland

      [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]. THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, or what Alice Found There. London: Macmillan, 1877. Early Edition, published five years after the first edition. PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO THIS NEPHEW, inscribed on the half-title: "Bertram James Collingwood/ from his affte. Uncle/ the Author/ August. 7. 1878." Original cloth, all edges gilt. GOOD only, having endured old and inexpert attempts at repair to the spine and inner hinges which appear to have been accomplished during the 1920s if not before. There is some smudging to the last eight pages but the covers are relatively clean. While not glistening with eye appeal, this is an important copy having been presented to one of the author's two beloved nephews (the other became his biographer). Bertram James Collingwood [1871- 1934] shared his uncle's love for mathematics and logic (illuminating letters between the two which discuss these subjects can be found in various institutions). When Dodgson made his funeral arrangements, he arranged for Bertram to receive (in 1898) that portion of his library related to Mathematics, Science, and Medicine. Like his uncle, Collingwood became a professor and had a brilliant career at University (Cambridge) but, unlike his uncle, he was a fanatical sportsman and is best known today for having donated the "Collingwood Cup" which is still the championship trophy for Irish University Football, celebrating its 100th birthday in 2014. While we have seen numerous copies of the author's inscribed books, those actually presented to members of his family are highly uncommon, especially in original cloth. In a splendid new quarter-morocco slipcase.

      To Bertie, British theater producer and entrepreneur Bertie Alexander Meyer (1877-1967), Christie writes that she would be fine giving her novel "Ten Little Niggers" "a new lease of life. I don't know what production difficulties there are or if it 'dates' - Anyway talk it over with Edmund Cork [Christie's agent] ...." She signs, "Agatha." This comment suggests that she is writing during the period 1939-1943 as "The Little Niggers" was published as a novel in 1939, with the U.S. edition being called "The Little Indians." Her first foray into adapting one of her novels into a play was with this title, it eventually being performed in the West End in 1943 under the title "And Then There Were None." In 1944, the show opened on Broadway under the title "Ten Little Indians" and in 1945 the American film premiered as "And Then There Were None. The West End premiere was presented by Bertie Meyer at the St. James Theatre. He managed the German Theatre in London, became business manager for Charles Frohman, managed the Queen's Theatre, and in 1913 became business manager of the Globe Theatre. He managed many theaters in London during his life, and in 1930, the Cambridge Theatre was built for him. In addition to these references, Christie mentions her agent, Edmund Cork, as the person to whom Meyer should speak. "He arranges all these things and knows far more about my affairs than I do."

        Floral Designs for the Table

      1877. PERKINS, John. Floral Designs for the Table; being Directions for its ornamentation with leaves, flowers, & fruit. With Classified lists of suitable plants, berries, and leaves, and twenty-four original coloured designs. 38, [2] pp. Illustrated with 24 chromolithographic plates. Title printed in red and black. Oblong 4to., 208 x 330 mm, bound in publisher's gilt decorated cloth, endpapers renewed. London: Wyman & Sons, 1877. |~||~||~||~| Only edition of a rare Victorian manual for floral table decoration, containing 24 lithographic designs for floral table settings. Perkins is described on the title page as the "head gardener for twenty-nine years to the late and present Lord Henniker." Chapters and illustrations are devoted to tables for dinner, luncheon and breakfast in various seasons, a cricket luncheon table, a wedding breakfast table, a "harvest home, dinner, or supper table," a hunt breakfast and a Christmas dinner. Each table setting is meticulously organized with numbered settings left blank for lamps, vases, confectionery, etc. (the actual place settings were arranged around these central decorations). Perkins describes the plants used and the details of their disposition, and the preliminary matter includes lists of plants which produce berries and ornamental leaves, as well as "generic" plants suitable for decoration. The decorations are marvelously ingenious and varied, ranging from star clusters composed of thistle leaves with roses at center - "the emblem of England centrally placed on the emblem of Scotland" for an appropriate dinner or luncheon; to a Christmas-like wreath of ferns surrounding smaller wreaths with begonias and chrysanthemums for a winter breakfast. One dinner table has the word "Welcome" spelled out in ivy and geraniums. Plants are appropriate for the occasion: stag's horn fern, hare's foot fern and foxgloves for the hunt table, mistletoe, small apples, fine-leaved ivy and winter cherries for Christmas, and so forth. Altogether the book evokes the warm and well-fed upstairs-downstairs world of the English country house. The illustrations defy verbal description and must be seen. Half-title a bit soiled, one or two small marginal tears, binding somewhat soiled, edges rubbed.

        Slave Trade. No. 4 (1877). Correspondence Respecting the Seizure of Slaves on board the "Rokeby" and "Koina" by her Majesty's Ship "Rifleman".

      London, Harrison and Sons, 1877. - Folio (210 x 320 mm). 16 pp. Cloth-covered spine. Rare documentary material on the interception of the ships and the seizure of slaves on board. British-operated ships continuously carried hajjis between Jeddah and ports in the Gulf, and the steamers were often used for the transport of slaves, sometimes with the cognizance of the captain. "The system of issuing tickets by the agents of British vessels at Jeddah without any name being inserted thereon, and the absence of passenger lists, no doubt render it extremely difficeult for the masters of ships to ascertain whether any of their passengers are slaves; and [.] it is one which cannot but place the gravest obstacles in our way in the suppression of the Slave Trade [.] The majority of the inhabitants of the Hedjaz and Yemen, from highest to the lowest, are interested in the Slave Trade, domestic slaves being a matter of necessity, servants not being procurable, what few there are bad [.] The Mahommedans consider the institution of slavery to be one of mutual benefit, and the slaves are geenrally the best dressed and best fed members of the household [.] It is very difficult to make any Mahommedan consider that slavery is a crime. He usually contends that the negro is recued from barbarism, and is taught the Mahommedan religion, and on that ground he defends the system; and indeed, he regards himself somewhat in the light of a missionary, and thinks he is extending his faith. The question is, therefore, beset with some difficulty [.]". - Occasional edge repairs. OCLC 872281698 (Internet resource only). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The West End premiere was presented by Bertie Meyer at the St. James Theatre. He managed the German Theatre in London, became business manager for Charles Frohman, managed the Queen's Theatre, and in 1913 became business manager of the Globe Theatre. He managed many theaters in London during his life, and in 1930, the Cambridge Theatre was built for him. In addition to these references, Christie mentions her agent, Edmund Cork, as the person to whom Meyer should speak. "He arranges all these things and knows far more about my affairs than I do."

        Certificate awarded to an Australian winemaker at the 1877 Metropolitan Intercolonial Exhibition, Sydney

      Sydney: printed by S.T. Leigh, 1870 but dated, 1877. Colour lithograph with manuscript additions, 490 x 370 mm., a few closed tears and a little foxing, good condition overall. Honourable mention for a full bodied wine. Uncommon relic of Australian winemaking in the 1870's, a certificate awarded at the Sydney Intercolonial Exhibition of 1877 to winemaker Conrad Sohninger of Orange for his 'full bodied white wine'.For Australian agriculturalists, especially those who produced goods for ready export (such as winemakers), the Intercolonial exhibitions were an opportunity to reach hitherto inaccessible markets. The Melbourne Intercolonial Exhibition of 1866-1867 had been a great success, and the decision to stage a similar event in Sydney from 1870 onwards was motivated (in part at least) by rivalry between the two colonies.The grand spectacle of public exhibitions arose from precedents in England and Europe, as revealed in a Sydney Morning Herald of October 1870: 'This exhibition was called into existence under the auspices of the Agricultural Society of New South Wales, and it has proved a splendid success. It has been to this colony what the Great Exhibition of 1851 was to England - what the Exposition Universelle of Paris was to France in 1862. It has attracted large numbers of people from all parts of New South Wales, and also from other colonies of Australasia.'.

        Caldwell's Illustrated Historical Centennial Atlas of Washington Count

      1877. CALDWELL, J.A. Caldwell's Illustrated Historical Centennial Atlas of Washington County. By J. A. Caldwell. 228 pp. Illustrated with over 100 maps and views. Tall folio, 445 x 355 mm, bound in original publisher's boards, rebacked in black cloth with a red cloth label. Pittsburgh: Otto Krebs, 1876. |~||~||~||~||~| An impressive example of nineteenth-century American naive bookmaking at its very best, engraved, lithographed and printed by Otto Krebs, the prolific illustrator of Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania during this period of great industrial and agricultural growth in the region. There are five large maps; one each of Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, two of Washington County, one of Pennsylvania and one of the United States. There are also 44 maps of towns and villages, 31 maps of townships. However, the most intriguing element of the atlas is the presence of over 228 views of farms, factories, stores and churches which offer a unique vision of all aspects of life in 19th century Pennsylvania. Pastoral scenes of rolling farm country populated by farmers, men and women in horse drawn carriages, churchgoers, sheep, cows, and all elements of agricultural industry enliven these quintessential lithographs of nineteenth-century Americana. Uncommon in US institutions, with only 9 recorded in OCLC. Most copies having been segmented for the attractive individual views and framed separately. Subject to a facsimile edition in 1976. With several small professional paper repairs to margins, but still a very good copy of a book rarely found in acceptable condition.

        Caldwell's Illustrated Historical Combination Atlas of Clarion County,

      1877. PENNSYLVANNIA - CLARION COUNTY. Caldwell's Illustrated Historical Combination Atlas of Clarion County. By J. A. Caldwell. 230 pp. Illustrated with over 100 coloured lithographic maps and views. Tall folio, 445 x 355 mm, bound in new black cloth with the original gilt-lettered cover pasted on. Pittsburgh: Otto Krebs, 1877. |~||~||~||~||~| A spectacular example of nineteenth-century American bookmaking. The atlas, engraved, lithographed, and printed by Otto Krebs, is noteworthy for the presence of over 170 coloured lithographic views of farms, factories, stores, churches and bustling street scenes which offer a unique vision of all aspects of life in nineteenth-century Pennsylvania oil country. Nowhere is the Pennsylvania oil boom better illustrated than in the lithographed collage representing Beaver City where we find Emanuel Lutheran Church, a country church, literally surrounded on all sides by oil wells. Other illustrations showcase farms operating as oil producing centers or specific wells famous for their depth or production. Of further note are railroad scenes, printing shops, as well as ads for various services and educational institutions. Less than 250 copies of this atlas were printed. Most copies have been dismembered, and individual views framed for separate sale. A unique document of nineteenth-century American rural architecture. Rebacked and some internal wear, but overall an acceptable copy of an extremely rare book.

        Pictures of Life and Character in New York

      1877. [NEW YORK]. AVERELL, G.W. (lithographer). Pictures of Life and Character in New York. [20] ff., each with full-page lithograph on recto and advertisement on verso. 4to., 303 x 260 mm, bound in original publisher's brick-red cloth, embossed and gilt (somewhat worn), preserved in a black cloth case. New York: Averell, N.D. (advertisements dated 1877). |~||~||~||~||~| Probable First Edition. The New York Historical Society copy bears an advertisement on the rear paste-down for "Cash assets, Jan. 1, 1878" -- the present copy, unsophisticated in the original binding, never had advertisements on the paste-downs; and yet internally there are two different advertisements dated May 1877 -- thus preceding all recorded copies by six months. This is a charming and rare depiction of New York social life and customs in the late nineteenth century. The plates cover a wide range of subjects, including Fulton Ferry, Castle Garden, Jewish tailors and life on Chatham Street, a boarding house on Seventh Avenue, an opium den in Chinatown, horse racing, a walk in Central Park, unsavory characters, beggars, and street vendors throughout the city, and more. The advertisements offer similar documentation of city life during the 1870s, with goods and services such as tobacco, music boxes, optical instruments, suspenders, pianos, carriages, varnishes, hair tonic, printing materials, kid gloves, steam boat voyages, perfumery, champagne, chocolate, billiard tables, relief from sea-sickness, and much more. Traces of damp throughout, first blank torn along gutter margin, but an excellent, unsophisticated copy in original condition.

        Cartas á la dona. Noticias exactas detalladas de la Exposició universal de Filadelfia en 1876 y d'un viatxe pels Estats-Units

      Nova-York [New-York]: Estampa de John Smith 4to. 285 pp., illus.. 1877 The first book printed in Catalan in the United States" (according to the title-page) => but really printed in Barcelona. Arus (1845?-91), a Catalan playwright and writer for newspapers and other periodical publications, acted here on a request from Arturo Cuyas, the compiler of a highly successful 1876 Spanish-English dictionary that is still in print and the editor of the first Catalan magazine in the United States, La Llumanera (1874?-81), a weekly that dealt with everything except politics. Cuyas wanted Arus to supply a "chronicle" of the Philadelphia International Exposition for publication in his magazine, and had J. Garriga, a representative of La Llumanera, send him writings and documents, content and detail, that Arus, who himself never visited the Exhibition, then transformed into a series of 13 "letters" in verse form addressed to Cuyas and signed "Pau Pi y Pla." From their basis in simple "noticias" of the United States, of Philadelphia in particular, and most especially of the wonders of the Centennial Exhibition, the letters => flower into a social and literary study of customs, satirically comparing the those of United States with those of Catalonia. Following several introductory sections, each page of text of the letters is printed within one of a number of => illustrated wood-engraved borders, and each carta is illustrated with one or more comic cut(s), roughly one-third-page in height, highlighting points in the text. The title-page statement that "illustrat ab preciosos dibuixos dels primers artistas catalans" is borne out by the list on pp. 9 and 10 of the => some 70 illustrators who supplied the wood-engraved illustrations and borders. The title-page labels this "Tomo I" but the second volume never appeared. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate => only three U.S. libraries reporting ownership. Late 19th-century quarter red leather with red textured paper sides, round spine with modest gilt tooling and lettering; boards rubbed. Text variably foxed as are the copies with condition statements in the few Spanish library OPACs reporting ownership. From a disparate variety of points of view, a volume => fascinating to contemplate.
