        Le Guide du Carrossier

      Paris: ca. 1880. Album of 47 maquettes of fancy carriages and sleds, including one water color of a ceremonial “traineau”* ; the others printed in lithographs and carefully hand-colored (some heighted with gold or silver). A few signed by Lagard*2. The finished maquettes were reproduced in the monthly issues Le Guide du carrossier et les équipages Å• Paris, Revue de la construction des voitures et des automobiles (1880-1900) *3 . The publisher was Brice Thomas *4. These illustrations picture examples of excessively decorated luxury carriages (carrosse France, Luxuswagenbau. Germany) driven by wealthy Europeans in an era before the automobile . The album includes six highly decorated sleds (traineau. France; schlittern. Germany). The watercolor “traineau” unsigned, from the early 19th century, is essentially 2 a ceremonial sleigh used by the wealthy society to appear in a winter festival. The sled is modeled on a baroque style of traineau shaped as a slipper, decorated with cupids. Not only are the maquettes beautiful in their own right, but they are clearer and sharper than the final photographs that would appear in the semi-monthly periodical. Before the automobile was invented , horse and cart were necessary but could also be a luxurious means of transportation. Driving in the private carriage unfolded in the 19th century as never before and sparked a boom in Luxuswagenbau. New wealthy strata of society at that time developed a large mobility and need for representation. (Furger. Introduction) Notes: *1. The ceremonial traîneau was first created as a means of winter sporting for the pleasure of the European royalty and aristocracy in the 17th and 18th century. Far from having a purely utilitarian purpose, these fabulous vehicles were used throughout Europe in parades and races. “Parade sleighs came into fashion in the Renaissance and remained in vogue until the French Revolution.” No expense was spared in the construction of sleighs, which were executed by leading court artists and sculptors, and no detail was overlooked, as even the upholstery and blankets were lavishly decorated and the horses were outfitted with silver, feathers, and jewels … A further interesting aspect of 18th century “traîneau culture” was that it enhanced the woman’s role in court ceremony…the occupant of the sleigh would be female “the real center of the event was the lady…in which she displays in the most magnificent attire her wealth and beauty…the head covered with diamonds…she appears as a Venus in her vehicle, and is conscious of the admiration of thousands of people.” (Hobbs) *2 Lagard, Luce André (Lagarde ?) was an important designer of carriages, especially for Le Guide du Carrossier, 66 Rue Abbatucci, Paris, France. He was awarded the Class XIV. The Hub Medal of Merit," for best design and working drawing of a One-horse Cab adapted for public use in cities.” (Hub, 1880) *3 Le Guide du Carrossier later La Carrosserie française : publication spéciale traitant de la construction des voitures et de la sellerie-harnais: paraissant tous les deux mois. 1859-1913. Montly, bi-monthly Le Guide du Carrossier described and pictured luxury carriages as well as vehicles for transport and public service. It employed carefully drawn illustrations with practical information followed by dimensional measurements for all necessary parts to major construction including énchantillons. It printed details for painting saddlery and harnesses, and it recounted the historical and commercial history of the different body types. The carriages were drawn to scale in outlines, shaded in black and printed in colors (as here). *4 Thomas, Brice (Pierre-Brice-Marc-Antoine Thomas) was born in Friaize , a small town of Eure et Loire ( 28) , July 16, 1820. From the age of 13, apprenticed to a cooper as a 3 wheelwright. He was a mechanic during the early Tours de France. Called to military service, he served in the artillery and learned elementary and descriptive geometry, mathematics and industrial design. According to an article in The Hub, In 1858, Thomas founded Guide du Carrossier as well as a school for the instruction of young men who were ambitious to occupy responsible positions within the carriage and later automobile manufacturers. He is author of Traité de menuiserie en voitures,..[Privatedly printed: 1870] (Hub, 1913). Reference: Furger, Andres:Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts, Band 1: EquipagenHandbuch.

        Photograph album of Sydney, NSW, New Zealand, Fiji, Victoria.

      Ca. 1880.. A photographic record of a trip to Fiji, New Zealand, Sydney, the Blue Mountains & Victoria, ca. 1880, by an American, we believe. The nicely designed album of albumen photographs has the photographs mounted in an accordian-style, the album opening in two directions, with the photographs mounted on both sides of the linen coated boards. None of the photographs have photographer's names on the images, and most are hand-captioned, but some have printed captions most likely garnered from a photographer's letterpress. The album begins with photographs by the Dufty brothers in Fiji, with 15 views (8x5 1/4") including a composite photograph British Colonists & Natives in Fiji; Hall in Government House, Lavuka (sic) (wonderful tribal art); Levuka, looking towards the North; a Fiji settlement (native community); cotton plantation; Halfrontes Residence Loma Loma Vanua Balavuk Fiji; "Dakin" Savu Savu Bay, Vauna Levu (2 small Caucasian boys sitting in front of their grass home); The King's Canoe (many Fijians on board); Native Trading Canoes on the Beach Levuka; Looking towards the South Dr. Brower's House; the Common outrigger dug out with sail (2 Caucasian men); taro patch & 4 cartes de visite of a bathing scene, natives, a lawyer Fiji & Wallace Island New Caledonia. There are 8 large New Zealand views (7 1/4 x 5 1/4") and they include New Zealand Scenery No. 1 Harrison's Cove, Milford Sound, With the Government the Steamer Luna, and the yacht Jessie Nichol at anchor; Dart River on Martin's Bay Track; Tooth Peak Mts.; Jollie River Pass; Mt. Blowhard (with 3 children seated in foreground); Kawarau River; Mt. Cook; Naseby, N.Z. (this image is located in the Museum of NZ photographic collection as C.014137, although the title "Naseby in '79" and Burton Bros Dunedin is trimmed off). We were only able to identify one photograph amongst the many displayed on the most excellent digital collection of the Museum of New Zealand photographic collection. The New South Wales & Victoria portion of the trip has 6 large views (8x6") including The Craggs at the Entrance Harbor (sic) of Sydney, Australia. "33" in lower left corner; Mountain scenery in the Interior above Sydney, "43" in lower left corner (2" closed tear) Victorian Views, The Yarra, from the Botanical Gardens Bridge Looking toward Richmond; The Old Cement Works, Schnapper Point; Scene from the North Shore, Sydney Harbour; St. Leonard's Township from the Hill, an oval photograph, possibly by Nicholas Caire? Then follows a collection of 21 photographs of Sydney, most likely by Alexander Brodie. They are stereoscopic view size images measuring 3" square, mounted panoramically. There are 7 of Sydney harbor, Governor's residence; 4 botanical garden scenes, 2 of the Heads, 4 unidentified harbor views; 3 of the Blue Mountains including the Zig Zag. The view of Pyrmont Bridge appears to be the same as one held in the Mitchell Library (Digital Order No. a602005). Nicely bound in a brown cloth album decoratively stamped in black with the gilt title "Card Album" on both the front and back covers, 11 x 8 1/4". Both the photographs and the album are in very good condition.

"Alfredo Leonardo Edel, semplicemente conosciuto come Alfredo Edel (Colorno, 15 maggio 1856 ? Boulogne-sur-Seine, 16 dicembre 1912), pittore, costumista e illustratore, nacque nei pressi di Parma proveniente da una famiglia di origine alsaziana. Alcuni membri della sua famiglia erano artisti: il padre Leopoldo era un pittore dilettante, il fratello Vittorino un figurinista e la sorella Adele dipingeva professionalmente, ma soprattutto la famiglia si vantava della discendenza da Giuseppe Naudin, celebre miniaturista, maestro di pittura della duchessa di Parma Maria Luigia d'Austria, divenuto in seguito alla fine del Ducato di Parma, regio pittore di Vittorio Emanuele II. Ebbe una brillante carriera artistica ricca di riconoscimenti sia come pittore ed illustratore e soprattutto come costumista teatrale della Scala di Milano dal 1880 al 1890. Collaborò con i maggiori teatri d'Europa, essendo un'artista estroso e creativo, considerato tra gli innovatori del teatro italiano di fine secolo. La sua attività variava dalla lirica ("Otello" di Verdi, 1887; "La Bohème" di Puccini, 1897; "Veritas et Amor" di Pizzi, 1904; "Don Carlos" di Verdi, 1912), balletti ("Excelsior", 1881; "Sport", 1899; "Rosa d'amore", 1900; "Bacco" e "Gambrinus", 1905), circo ("Barnum", 1889-90), pantomime ("Little Bo Peep" e "Robinson Crusoe", Londra 1892) e alla extravaganza ("Neptune's Daughter", Londra 1906). Muore a Boulogne-sur-Seine vicino a Parigi il 16 dicembre 1912 ed è sepolto nel cimitero locale". "Virginia Ferni Giordano (Torino, 1849 ? 1934), cugina delle omonime cantanti comasche Carolina, Virginia e Vincenzina, fu artista precocissima, esibendosi già all?età di sette anni in un repertorio di canzoni spagnole e suonando il violino. Esordì a teatro nel 1876 a Siviglia nel ?Faust?, ed ebbe una carriera intensa che la vide calcare le scene in Spagna, in Italia, in Russia e nell?America del Nord e del Sud. Cantante prediletta di Alfredo Catalani, di cui interpretò le prime esecuzioni de l??Edmea?

        Ariost`s Rasender Roland. Illustrirt (illustriert) von Gustav Doré. Metrisch übersetzt von Hermann Kurz, durchgesehen und herausgegeben von Paul Heyse * G A N Z L E D E R - E i n b a n d v o n J o h a n n e s G e r b e r s H a m b u r g 1925

      Breslau, Verlag von S. Schottländer, um 1880. - Vollständige Ausgabe in prachtvollem, signiertem Handeinband von Johannes Gerbers (Hamburg 1925): echter Ganzfranzband, geheftet auf fünf Bünde, dunkelbraunes Maroquin-Leder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 32 x 41 cm) mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, großer Deckelvignette (Malerei auf Pergamenteinlage), Linien-Dekoration der Deckel (Linien in Blinddruck, Filetendruck in Handvergoldung), reicher Innen- und Stehkantenvergoldung, handgestochenem Kopfband, Lederhäubchen, Ganzgoldschnitt und Pergamentspiegel. X+636 Seiten, mit Frontispiz und 88 Tafeln sowie zahlreiche Textillustrationen (Holzstiche) auf kräftigem Velinpapier. - Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung, signiert von Gerbers auf der hinteren inneren Einbanddeckelseite; Schuber mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren, sonst tadellos. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München. - Äußerst aufwendige Kunstbuchbinder-Arbeit in sehr guter Erhaltung. - Deutscher Meistereinband, Liebhaber-Einband, Luxuseinband, Ganzleder-Handeinband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei im 20.Jahrhundert, illustrierte Bücher, Prachtausgabe, italienische Rinne Literatur der Renaissance, Ludovico Ariosto, italienisches Versepos Orlando furioso Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 2000 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Islands of the World

      - This beautiful set of two schoolgirl or schoolboy manuscript maps depicts the various islands of the world. The first map includes the British Isles, Sardinia, Iceland, Ceylon, Sicily, Corsica, Cuba, New Zealand, Anglesea, Madagascar, Candia, Newfoundland, Isle of Man, Balearic Islands, Haiti, Long Island, Tasmania and the Isle of Wight. The second map features Sumatra, Borneo, Mauritius and Bourbon, Madeira, Galapagos, Long Island, Prince Edwards Island, the Canary Islands, Cyprus, New Guinea, Jamaica, Java, Trinidad and Socratra Island. Both maps are beautifully colored in pink. The maps are in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfolds. Minor toning and foxing at places with some edge wear. Second sheet includes rip near top. The maps date to circa 1880 and were most likely made by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study.In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. This map is a lovely document that straddles the line between art and geography. Map Set. Two maps. Pen and ink with watercolor. Each sheet measures 7 x 8.5".

While the illustrations are simple line scaled drawings and straightforward lithography, the elaborate fountains, with their seraps, dolphins, cranes, acanthus and other Beaux Arts detailing, are visually arresting and make this an extraordinary trade catalogue. There are other George Smith catalogues to be found on OCLC First Search, but none are this particular one or in this large a format, and the total number of Smith catalogues in book form is also not large. (Other catalogues, presumed slightly earlier, can be of a fuller line offered by the company.) Soiling on the blue paper pastedown. Some looseness of the hinge. General wear.

        Islands of the World

      Map Set. Two maps. Pen and ink with watercolor. Each sheet measures 7 x 8.5". This beautiful set of two schoolgirl or schoolboy manuscript maps depicts the various islands of the world. The first map includes the British Isles, Sardinia, Iceland, Ceylon, Sicily, Corsica, Cuba, New Zealand, Anglesea, Madagascar, Candia, Newfoundland, Isle of Man, Balearic Islands, Haiti, Long Island, Tasmania and the Isle of Wight. The second map features Sumatra, Borneo, Mauritius and Bourbon, Madeira, Galapagos, Long Island, Prince Edwards Island, the Canary Islands, Cyprus, New Guinea, Jamaica, Java, Trinidad and Socratra Island. Both maps are beautifully colored in pink. The maps are in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfolds. Minor toning and foxing at places with some edge wear. Second sheet includes rip near top. <br><br>The maps date to circa 1880 and were most likely made by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study.<br><br>In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. This map is a lovely document that straddles the line between art and geography.

        Official Map of the Territory of Arizona.

      New York: The Graphic Company, 1880. - Single sheet, (32 ¼ x 27 ¾ inches). Table of Distances to front pastedown. Fine folding duotone lithographed map with printed color in outline, laid down on cartographic linen in 35 sections (some toning). Original publisher's brown pebbled cloth gilt (a bit edgeworn). Provenance: With the inkstamp of Frederick Hodges to front pastedown. With inkstamp of "W. B. Walkup & Co., Framers, Map and Chart Mounters, 540 Clay Street, San Francisco." From the important cartographical library of Warren Heckrotte, his sale, Rare Cartography, Exploration and Voyages, Part II, December 3, 2015, Lot 133. "LARGEST SCALE MAP OF THE TERRITORY" (Streeter) First edition. Large and important map of Arizona as the mineral boom was taking hold, with mining districts designated through outline coloring as well as the counties and Indian reservations, with military telegraphs also shown. There is the Seal of the Territory with signature in plate of J.C. Fremont, Governor. Distances are indicated along the roads. Tombstone, founded a few years earlier, is prominent on the map, with its own district designation, but farther south Bisbee, founded the year the map was published, does not make an appearance. On the inside of the front cover is mounted a leaf of text, titled "Table of distances from and to Different Stations in Arizona Territory to Accompany Official Map." Paul Riecker, a nationally renowned civil and mining engineer, drew this map from his previous topographical survey of California and Arizona as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is the first official map of the Arizona Territory. Riecker led an early exploration party across the Colorado Plateau and was among the first to make contact with the Havasupai at the Grand Canyon. Paul Riecker sued for homestead rights, thereby creating the origins of Riecker's Addition. He built the first houses north of the railroad tracks in Tucson in 1880. In 1896, Paul Riecker mapped Pasadena, California, and laid out Inglewood and Redondo Beach, California. He was also involved in the Panama-Nicaragua Canal controversy as one of the original surveyors of the Nicaragua Canal route. Phillips Maps, p. 123. Streeter 526. Graff 1204. Rumsey 2980.

        Original tegning med siddende sydeuropæisk dame: Carolina.

      1880 1880 - Usigneret. 25x19,5 cm. I træramme [28x23 cm.]. * Simon Simonsen tilsluttede sig ligesom faderen Niels S. den gruppe af kunstnere, der i tiden mellem de to slesvigske krige kaldtes kosmopolitterne eller europæerne. Godt opmuntret af det københavnske kunstakademi tilegnede han sig en glat og naturalistisk tilforladelig malemåde og et motivvalg, der oprindeligt, især appellerede til et internationalt, aristokratisk publikum. Heri er han beslægtet med Otto Bache, men S. nåede aldrig Baches popularitet og anerkendelse. På et område kunne S. dog måle sig med Bache, i dyreskildringerne, specielt skildringerne af jagthunde. Især hundehvalpe malede S. med en indtagende charme, som ganske vist ligger langt fra vort århundredes opfattelse af kunst, men som den fordumsfrie beskuer også i dag kan have fornøjelse af at se på.

        The Trumpet Major. A Tale.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1880 - 3 volumes, octavo. Original red diagonal-fine-ribbed cloth, front covers with pictorial design in black (encampment and mill, from a drawing by the author) and lettered in black, rear covers blocked in blind with two-line border to vols. I-II and three-line border to vol. III, spines gilt and black with design of standard, sword and bugle, cream endpapers. Housed in a dark red leather entry slipcase. Extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, spines darkened and gently rolled, rear covers of vols. I-II slightly marked, portion of light wear to head of front cover of vol. III, very occasional light spotting chiefly restricted to margins and endleaves; subtle restoration of free endpapers vols. I and III along gutter, though vol. I with remnants of old adhesive evident on contents leaf and verso of title-page and rear pastedown rather soiled, upper outer corner of vol. I sig. G3 reattached; vol. II with effaced ownership inscription to front pastedown, inner hinge starting at head, surface-splitting to foot of rear joint and old repair to head. A very good set. First edition in book form of Hardy's great novel of the Napoleonic war, written to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Trafalgar. The story was first published in slightly bowdlerized form in Good Words, Jan&#150;Dec 1880, with the book edition published on 26 October 1880 "in an edition of 1000 copies" (Purdy), though sales were slow and 250 sets of sheets were eventually remaindered to W. Glaisher, wholesale bookseller, in 1882. Volumes I and II represent Purdy and Sadleir's binding variant A, the original state, with the two-line border to the rear covers and the full stop between Smith and Elder in the spine-imprint centred rather than on the base line; volume III bears the three-line border and the base-line full stop indicative of scarcer variant B, a secondary binding dating from the Glaisher sale. The triple-decker format was largely adopted for sale to lending libraries, meaning that sets retaining the original cloth in anything approaching collectable condition are uncommon; this set comes from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of the first volume: an excellent association.

Yellow pictorial cloth, 2 vols.. 418+522p., with 15 albumen photographs,1 folding reprodution. map, spine splits, only a few copies with photos, co-publi-. shed by Kelly, Yokohama, 15 x 24 cm. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. A MOST IMPORTANT EARLY BRITISH PRIMARY RESOURCE ON JAPAN An important primary source, written by the former editor of the "Japan Herald," the "Japan Gazette," "Far East," "Nisshin Shinjishi" among several other publications, the author was especially qualified in reporting the news. This current work is his most exhaustive account of both foreign and Japanese activities in Yokohama from its early opening in 1858 back to 1789. * During this 21 year Period, history was made, for Japan was now open to the West, and the flow of ship and goods made Japan aware of her backwardness. Printed in Yokohama at the author's private printing office, this work covers the author's personal observations of the arrival of Lord Elgin, Mr. Alcock, Japanese experiences with foreigners, murdered Russians, assassinations of foreigners, the murder of Mr. Henry Heusken, Mr. Oliphant and rebel Satsuma forces, Ohara Mission, account of Choshu forts cannon attacks upon foreign vessels, Sir Harry Parks, life in Yokohama, trade, start of "Japan Times," Chamber of Commerce, &c. * This work also covers "The King of Liu-kiu's own Story. * Perhaps the most comprehensive early resource on Yokohama & foreigners there done during this period. * All editions were identical in this aspect, and the contents are identical. A contemporary insight to Yokohama life. ALWAYS RARE ! * NOTE ON THE PUBLISHER, PRINTING LOCATION OF THIS WORK: On the verso of the title page it states: Vol.1: "Printed at the Private Printing Office of the Author, No.16, Yokohama, Japan." . Vol. 2: "Printed at the "Japan Gazette" Office, no.70, Main Street, Yokohama, Japan." . While the title page states at the bottom, "London, Trubner & Co., Yokohama, Kelly & Co 1880, 1881" this book was only published in Yokohama, but distributed by Trubner in London. The publisher "Kelly" is referring to a later change in that publisher's name to "Kelly & Walsh." . Regardless of the above irregularities, the book was clearly privately printed in Yokohama at John R. Black's office. A very rare and early Yokohama printing in English. *** Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not always be the exact photo of the copy in stock for sale at any given time.
