        The Transval of New York

      New York: Johnson & Co, 1880. Map printed in colours, (sheet size:17 x 54 inches), (splits at folds expertly sealed), [with:] a 29pp. pamphlet "The Transval of New York" (New York: Johnson & Co., 1880), small 8vo (6 3/4 x 4 3/8 inches), original pebble-grained cloth-covered boards. A fine map of the region now largely Washington Heights of Manhattan; from 130th Street to Inwood Hill Park, the Henry Hudson Bridge and the northern-most tip of Manhattan Island that Viele proposed to call the Transval in reference to the valley-like gorge that runs through the area. The name never stuck and little or nothing came of Viele's proposal that this would be an excellent terminal port for lumber and grain traveling via the Erie Canal. A canal, similar to that shown on the map, was finally dug in 1923. Much of Viele's map, as with many 19th century maps of Manhattan, was "as planned" or hoped for rather than "as existing". What were there in fact were the substantial homes, designated in black on the map, of prosperous New Yorkers, who enjoyed the spectacular views of the Hudson and many of the north-south running avenues that form the axes of the present community. Viele's pamphlet gives an entertaining and detailed history of the region and a particularly good account of the Battle for Fort Washington, which, though Washington's men lost, was a valiantly fought encounter, worthy of greater renown in the annals of that war. General Viele had a distinguished career. A descendent of an old New York Dutch family, he graduated from West Point, served in the Mexican War and the Civil War, was Engineer-in-Chief of the Central Park and Prospect Park developments and served a term in Congress. Jackson, The Encyclopedia of New York City.

        Framed Original Humorous Watercolor by Randolph Caldecott entitled "Telling the Tale"

      NA. Fine. The watercolor depicts a humorous scene in which an old duffer in a plaid suit has three young ladies in his thrall while man in the background, a self-portrait of Caldecott himself, is nodding off. The palette is of muted light colors, and the painting is pleasingly both impressionistic and detailed. N.d., circa 1880. The watercolor itself measures 24.5 by 20 cm, and in the frame, 32 by 36 cm.

        Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de la flore et de la pomone de l' Ile de Java peints d'après nature par Madame Berthe Hoola van Nooten. Troisieme edition

      Brussels and Leipzig: Librairie Européenne C. Muquardt, 1880. Folio. (22 x 15 1/4 inches). Half-title, title, dedication to the Queen of the Netherlands and foreword in French, parallel text in French and English. 40 chromolithographed plates by P. Depannemaeker after Hoola van Nooten. Expertly bound to style in red half morocco over contemporary light green glazed paper-covered boards, titled in gilt on flat spine Third, and improved edition of this magnificent display of spectacular Javanese fruits and flowers, their bright colours ideally suited to the then new technique of chromolithography. 'Europeans who beheld these plants for the first time... could not but have been moved to wonder and amazement' ("Oak Spring Flora") Berthe Hoola van Nooten (1840-1885), a latter-day Maria Sibylla Merian, produced the present work as a heroic response to circumstances which left her on Java, a widow in her early twenties with a family to support and little money, certainly not enough to pay for her family's passage home to Belgium. 'Aware of the vogue in Europe for exotic flora, she decided to take advantage of her enforced exile and put to use the skill at flower painting that she had no doubt acquired as a girl. Thus she prepared forty magnificent plates for Fleurs, fruits et feuillages choisis de l'Ile de Java ... [van Nooten] was clearly a more than competent artist, for the splendid tropical plants, with their lush foliage, vividly coloured flowers and exotic fruit, have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics. The reader's eye is immediately captured by the dark leaves, shown furled or crumpled or partly nibbled away by insects, the delicately rendered details of the follicles and seeds, and the heavy clusters of flowers that cascade down the page. The excellent reproduction of the artist's drawings in the form of chromolithographs lends an added tactility to these striking images' ( Oak Spring Flora ) The work consists of a lithographed dedication (in rhyme) to the Queen of the Netherlands. This is followed by a preface in which the author hints at the tragic personal circumstances which led her to seek a publisher for the work, and the forty plates, each of which is accompanied by detailed text in French and English giving a description as well as occasional information on the plants' culinary, medical, religious and other uses. The plates depict a mixture of indigenous, naturalised and introduced plants and include shrubs, flowering trees and, perhaps the most striking of all, 16 portraits of plants with edible fruits: pomelo, rambutan, mangosteen, custard-apple, bread-fruit, mango, bananas, star-fruit and papaya amongst others. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 103; Landwehr 80; Nissen BBI 93; Oak Spring Flora 87; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3025.

        Les Baisers précédés de mois de mai. Poème. Mit zahlreichen Stichen in doppelter Suite [Text Französisch].

      Rouen: Lemonnyer 1880. XXV, 106 Seiten, 48 Seiten. Meisterhafter Ganzlederband der Zeit (signiert `Victor Barbou`) mit vergoldeten fünffachen Fileten und Eckfleurons, ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung, sehr reicher Innenkantenvergoldung, marmorierten Vorsätzen und Kopfgoldschnitt, Groß-Oktav, 25,4 x 1 (minimal bestossen oder beschabt, Gelenke leicht beschabt, innen im Rand ganz gering braunfleckig, sonst innen sauber, insgesamt sehr schönes Exemplar) Erste Ausgabe in dieser Form, eines von nur 200 numerierten Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe. Hier vorliegend Nummer 116, eines der 100 Exemplare auf `Whatman`. Typisches und luxuriöses Beispiel französischer Bibliophilie. Erstmals erschien der Band 1770. Tatsächlich enthält er zwei Texte: zuerst eine neue Übersetzung des Klassikers `Die Küsse` aus der Feder des Johannes Secundus (N. Evaerts), danach eine Reihe von Gedichten aus der Feder Dorats im typischen Geschmack des 18. Jahrhunderts. Die Illustrationen, gestochen u.a. von De Longueil, stammen von Charles Eisen. Alle liegen hier im doppelten Abdruck vor, wobei der Plattenton der Abzüge etwas differiert: die erste Suite der Kupfer resp. Textkupfer ist schwarz gedruckt, die Extrasuite in leichtem Rötelton. Dorat (1734-1780), von Beruf zuerst Advkat, später Musketier, verfasste zahlreiche Werke, darunter Gedichte, Tragödien und Komödien, sowie etwa 100 Fabeln. - Barbier I, Sp. 378 (für die Erstausgabe) - Cohen/Ricci, Sp. 308 f. (ebenfalls für die EA) - Vicaire Sp. 284 (für vorl. Ausgabe. Danach müßte es sich beim vorliegenden Exemplar um eines der nur 50 Exemplare auf China handeln, denn nur diese haben die doppelte Suite. Der eingetragenen Nummer nach und auch nach Beurteilung des verwendeten Papiers handelt es sich aber wirklich um ein Exemplar auf Whatman-Bütten, wenn wir auch kein Wasserzeichen erkennen konnten. Entweder hat der Vorbesitzer sein Exemplar mit der zweiten Suite getrüffelt, oder der Verleger ist, abweichend von seinen Angaben im Subskriptionsprospekt aus dem Vicaire offensichtlich seine Angaben entnommen hat, von seiner ursprünglichen Planung abgewichen).

        SPEAKING PUZZLE BOX

      MOVEABLE. SPEAKING PUZZLE BOX. No pub. information, circa 1880. This is a Victorian cube puzzle in the original box - but this puzzle is different. Each of the 6 cubes makes a different sound when a string is pulled. The box is very large, measuring 16 1/2" wide x 11 3/4 " deep and 6 " high - in fine condition with metal clasps. The box is covered with printed chromolithographed paper and the top of the box features a brightly colored rooster and other chickens on the farm. Inside the box are six large cubes - each is 5" on a side. Like other cube puzzles of the era, the child can make 6 different scenes. Unlike any other puzzle, EACH OF THE CUBES MAKES A DIFFERENT SOUND when the string on each of the cubes is pulled (one string is missing) Laid-in are the six original large chromolithogrphed scenes that the child uses as guide to assmble the puzzles (the plate on the cover is the sixth scene). This is a glorious puzzle, extraordinarily rare.
