        Die römische Campagna mit der Via Appia.

      1880 1880 - Öl über schwarzer Feder, auf Malpappe, rechts unten bezeichnet, datiert und signiert "Via Appia 23 April 1880 HThom(a)". 34,8:53,5 cm. Mit kleinen Retuschen. Provenienz: Sammlung Simon Ravenstein, Frankfurt a.M. Literatur: H. Thode, Thoma. Des Meisters Gemälde, Stuttgart/Leipzig, DVA, 1909, Abb. S. 156 unten. In Begleitung seiner Frau Cella Thoma (1858-1901) und im Auftrag seines Sammlers und Förderers Charles Minoprio aus Liverpool, einem gebürtigen Frankfurter und wichtigster Mäzen Thomas in dieser Zeit, brach Thoma im März 1880 zu seiner zweiten Italienreise auf. Minoprio, der 1879 sein erstes Landschaftsbild von Thoma erworben hatte, hatte für sich und seine Freunde bei Thoma ca. zehn italienische Motive in Auftrag gegeben. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

      Im Selbstverlag des Verfassers - In Commission bei Woldemar Urbau in Leipzig Erscheinungsjahr 1880 - Format Groß8° - 1. und Einzigste Auflage , ( Entered according to Act of Congress in the Southern District of New York by W. Heyne Jan. 1873 ) II S. + 99 S. + 1 S. + 50 Tafeln mit Seidenhemdchen + jeweils 2 S. Text erläuternder Text dazu ,Originalganzleinen mit Deckel - und Rückentitel, etwas gelockert , 2 Einbandkanten stärker bestoßen, Erhaltung 2 += Peter Bernhard Wilhelm Heine (* 30. Januar 1827 in Dresden; † 5. Oktober 1885 in Kötzschenbroda[1], heute Radebeul; auch William Heine) war ein deutscher Maler, Schriftsteller und Reisender,Heine studierte an der Dresdner Kunstakademie und bei Julius Hübner, anschließend ging er zu Studienzwecken für drei Jahre nach Paris. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Dresden arbeitete er als Theatermaler und Kunstlehrer. Wegen seiner Teilnahme an den Aufständen 1848/1849 musste er, unterstützt durch Alexander von Humboldt, 1849 nach New York fliehen, wo er am Broadway ein Atelier eröffnete. Auf Einladung des Archäologen und Diplomaten Ephraim George Squier bereiste er 1851 auch Lateinamerika, vertrat Squier, bis dieser nach ihm eintraf, als Konsul, und dokumentierte und malte viele einheimische Pflanzen (Wanderbilder aus Centralamerika, 1853). Zurück in Washington, D.C. traf er Präsident Millard Fillmore und Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry und schloss sich im Jahr darauf Perrys Expedition nach Japan an. Als Mitglied in dessen Stab gelang es ihm, von dem damals noch für Ausländer gesperrten Edo viele Zeichnungen zu machen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach New York wurden diese und viele andere 1855 veröffentlicht. Es folgten seine Erinnerungen Reise um die Welt nach Japan (2 Bde., Leipzig, 1856), denen später (1859) noch ein 3. oder Supplementband unter dem Titel Die Expedition in die Seen von China, Japan und Okhotsk (Leipzig,1859) folgte. Kurz darauf erschien als separates Werk noch "Japan und seine Bewohner" (Leipzig, 1860), das ebenfalls auf Erfahrungen und Studien im Zusammenhang mit dieser Reise beruht.In Berlin erreichte Heine 1860 die Einladung, als Reisemaler die preußische Eulenberg-Expedition nach Ostasien mitzumachen. Während dieser Reise traf er in Jokohama den nach Europa zurückkehrenden russischen Revolutionär Michael Bakunin nach seiner Flucht aus Sibirien.Zurück in den USA wurde Heine einer der Forty-Eighters, der wegen der 1848er Revolution geflohenen Europäer, die im Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg meist auf Seiten der Unionstruppen teilnahmen. Heine war als Landvermesser (Ingenieur-)Hauptmann der Potomac-Armee und stieg 1865 bis zum Brigadegeneral auf. Zwischendurch veröffentlichte Heine 1864 sein Hauptwerk, Eine Weltreise um die nördliche Hemisphäre in Verbindung mit der Ostasiatischen Expedition in den Jahren 1860 und 1861 (Leipzig, 2 Bände). Nach dem amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg wurde er Konsul der USA in Paris, später in Liverpool.Schließlich kehrte er 1871 nach Dresden zurück und schrieb sein letztes Buch Japan, Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Landes und Seiner Bewohner (Berlin, 1873–80). Um 1880 ließ er sich in Niederlößnitz in der Augustusstraße 7 (heute Käthe-Kollwitz-Straße 24) nieder. Ab 1883 wohnte er in der Meißner Straße 45 (heutige Hausnummer: 269) in Kötzschenbroda. Dieser letzte Wohnsitz Heines wurde zwischenzeitlich abgerissen= Quelle Wikepedia

Pilsach, einer der treuesten Freunde des Meisters, 1873 aus privaten Mitteln zusammenbrachte, wurde er aller Not enthoben.

      [Claremont, N.H.: Simeon Ide, 1880.] - 12mo., (6 4/8 x 4 3/8 inches). Original brown cloth decorated in black, lettered in gilt (lightly faded). Provenance: with the ownership inscription of Geo. O. Ide, Chicago, Ills. On the front paste-down and on the verso of the front free endpaper; with the bookplate of James S. Copley on the front paste-down, his sale, Sotheby's New York "Magnificent American, Historical Documents", 10th May 2011, lot 1059. First edition. RARE.

Frémont. It includes "President" Ide's own narrative of the Bear Flag Revolt and its aftermath in a letter he wrote to Senator W. W. Wambough before his death in 1852.

        Photograph of a doubles lawn tennis match, with 2 observers and a large brick building and "penny-farthing" high-wheel bicycle at right

      n.p., 1880. Albumen print mounted on card. Image 24 x 17.5 cm. Light spotting to mount and image, slightly faded. A fine early image of a doubles lawn tennis match, the players wielding flat-topped wooden racquets. With an intriguing pencil notation beneath the image, "H.F. Chaffee." One Herbert Fuller Chaffee, born in 1865, achieved great success managing a Bonanza farm on North Dakota only to perish with the sinking of the Titanic. The young man in the foreground of this photo, staring directly into the lens, bears a close resemblance to a known image of Chaffee. This photo was possibly taken when Chaffee attended Oberlin College in the late 1880's.

        On a Fourth State of Matter" [A Letter to the Secretary] in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Volume 30, 1880, pp. 469-472

      First edition of Crookes' paper "On a Fourth State of Matter." This is the first edition of the paper's appearance in the Proceedings; in 1880 the paper appeared in Nature. "In 1879, the English physicist Sir William Crookes, while considering the properties of matter in electrical discharges, suggested that these gases are the fourth state of matter" (Eliezer, The Fourth State of Matter, 155). "With his thorough grounding in the experimentally difficult art of vacuum physics, Crookes laid the foundation for the fuller investigation by J. J. Thomson of the behavior of radiant matter in the discharge tube…[Writing in 1879 in a different paper], Crookes wrote, "In studying this Fourth state of Matter we seem at length to have within our grasp and obedient to our control the little indivisible particles which with good warrant are supposed to constitute the physical basis of the Universe" (Crookes, Nature 20, 1879). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of James Clerk Maxwell's proposal for measuring the ether, a critical prelude to Michelson-Morley's great 'failed' experiment -- a work that set "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry" [and] ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Lightman, 130). In this paper, Maxwell argues "that the velocity of the earth with respect to the ether alters the velocity of light by a quantity depending on the square of the ratio of the earth's velocity to that of light which he described as 'quite too small to be observed' (Staley, Einstein's Generation, 46). "Michelson did not accept this impossibility and started thinking of detecting the effect" (Soni, Mechanics and Relativity, 286). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of an 1880 paper by Huggins entitled "On the Photographic Spectra of Stars." In 1876 the author presented "a preliminary note on the subject of this paper, together with a diagram of the spectrum of Vega compared with that of the sun." (Proceedings 30, 1879, 20). The invention of a more perfect driving clock by Grubb enabled Huggins to resume his work with greater success. Herein, Huggins describes "the special apparatus and the methods of working which have been employed" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison & Sons. Complete volume. 8vo. 8.5 by 5.5 inches (213 x 138mm). [ix], 1, [599], 1, [vi], 3. Ex-libris with two stamps on the title page and no exterior markings whatsoever. In-text illustrations throughout. Handsomely rebound in half calf over aged marbled paper boards, gilt-lettered at the spine. Five gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine; each compartment gilt tooled. Marbled text block. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition in every way.

        On the Photographic Spectra of Stars" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Volume 30, 1879-1880, pp. 20-22

      First edition of an 1880 paper by Huggins entitled "On the Photographic Spectra of Stars." In 1876 the author presented "a preliminary note on the subject of this paper, together with a diagram of the spectrum of Vega compared with that of the sun." (Proceedings 30, 1879, 20). The invention of a more perfect driving clock by Grubb enabled Huggins to resume his work with greater success. Herein, Huggins describes in greater detail "the special apparatus and the methods of working which have been employed" (ibid). "In 1868, English astronomer Sir William Huggins (1824-1910) was the first to apply spectroscopy and the Doppler shift (described elsewhere) to estimate the motion of the Solar System relative to the stars. He found that the Earth was receding from Sirius by about 29 miles per second after compensating for the effect of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. Huggins did not determine how much of the proper motion was attributable to our Solar System and how much to the star" (Wenner Collection). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of James Clerk Maxwell's proposal for measuring the ether, a critical prelude to Michelson-Morley's great 'failed' experiment -- a work that set "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry" [and] ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Lightman, 130).

        Suite of manuscript material relating to 'Birds of New Guinea' and 'Birds of Asia.'

      London & Maidstone: dated between 4 September 1879 & 23 December, 1880. Four single sheets; including two printed receipts from Gould, 13.5 x 21 cm, both completed in manuscript, one with internal revenue stamp and signature of Gould, old folds, some chipping and small tears to edges; purchase order from Maidstone Museum, 12.5 x 16 cm, printed in red and completed in manuscript; and a fourth on Gould's letterhead, 20 x 12.5 cm, address printed in blue at head, manuscript date and "with Mr Gould's complts. & thanks" in a secretarial (?) hand. Four interesting pieces of ephemera regarding the sale of Gould's monumental Birds of New Guinea and Birds of Asia to the Maidstone Museum in 1880. Included is a "with compliments" slip on Gould's personal letterhead, and, on one of the receipts, Gould's unsteady signature acknowledging payment; he died only three months later, and both of the works being discussed here were completed by R. Bowdler Sharpe.The four documents track the sale of the two works to Maidstone Museum in Kent, still recognised as a prominent natural history museum, and then curated by the expert on South American birds and keen ornithologist, Edward Bartlett. The first two pieces in this collection are orders payable raised on the banker Drummonds, ordering the two works then in preparation, the Birds of Asia (1850-1883) and the Birds of New Guinea (1875-1888). One of these orders has an inland revenue stamp and record of moneys received, with Gould's shaky signature.The third document is a purchase order from the Borough of Maidstone, dated 11 August 1880, authorising the payment of nine guineas, signed by various local dignitaries.The fourth, which effectively completes the transaction, is on Gould's letterhead, and is evidently the note forwarded to Maidstone, "with Mr Gould's compts. & thanks": this is in a neat and legible hand, and given the nature of the signature of Gould for the receipt of monies on the same day, must be secretarial.John Gould (1804-1881), started out as a London taxidermist, and in 1823 was appointed to the staff of the Zoological Society of London. Gould's career really began with the publication of two works, his Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains (1831-1832) and The Birds of Europe (1832-1837). His magnificent Birds of Australia began to be published in London in 1840, less than two years after he had first arrived in Hobart. Gould's work on birds was followed by his equally monumental work on the mammals of Australia.Now reverently known as the 'Bird Man', manuscripts relating to his career have long been assiduously collected.

        Suite of manuscript material relating to 'Birds of New Guinea' and 'Birds of Asia.'

      dated between 4 September 1879 & 23 December, London & Maidstone 1880 - Four single sheets; including two printed receipts from Gould, 13.5 x 21 cm, both completed in manuscript, one with internal revenue stamp and signature of Gould, old folds, some chipping and small tears to edges; purchase order from Maidstone Museum, 12.5 x 16 cm, printed in red and completed in manuscript; and a fourth on Gould's letterhead, 20 x 12.5 cm, address printed in blue at head, manuscript date and "with Mr Gould's complts. & thanks" in a secretarial (?) hand. Four interesting pieces of ephemera regarding the sale of Gould's monumental Birds of New Guinea and Birds of Asia to the Maidstone Museum in 1880. Included is a "with compliments" slip on Gould's personal letterhead, and, on one of the receipts, Gould's unsteady signature acknowledging payment; he died only three months later, and both of the works being discussed here were completed by R. Bowdler Sharpe.The four documents track the sale of the two works to Maidstone Museum in Kent, still recognised as a prominent natural history museum, and then curated by the expert on South American birds and keen ornithologist, Edward Bartlett. The first two pieces in this collection are orders payable raised on the banker Drummonds, ordering the two works then in preparation, the Birds of Asia (1850-1883) and the Birds of New Guinea (1875-1888). One of these orders has an inland revenue stamp and record of moneys received, with Gould's shaky signature.The third document is a purchase order from the Borough of Maidstone, dated 11 August 1880, authorising the payment of nine guineas, signed by various local dignitaries.The fourth, which effectively completes the transaction, is on Gould's letterhead, and is evidently the note forwarded to Maidstone, "with Mr Gould's compts. & thanks": this is in a neat and legible hand, and given the nature of the signature of Gould for the receipt of monies on the same day, must be secretarial.John Gould (1804-1881), started out as a London taxidermist, and in 1823 was appointed to the staff of the Zoological Society of London. Gould's career really began with the publication of two works, his Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains (1831-1832) and The Birds of Europe (1832-1837). His magnificent Birds of Australia began to be published in London in 1840, less than two years after he had first arrived in Hobart. Gould's work on birds was followed by his equally monumental work on the mammals of Australia.Now reverently known as the 'Bird Man', manuscripts relating to his career have long been assiduously collected.
