        Souvenir de Karlsbad

      Decorated Cloth. Very Good. N.d., circa 1880. 11 by 7 cm. Comical leporello, with ten panels of color illustration with somewhat racy, ribald humor mostly depicting men and women taking baths. It is known that the same leporello was sold at different resorts using different names. Still, it is a scarce item, and one hardly likely to find its way into a library back when given its risque, racy content. Dating is based on fashions, including men's hairstyles and women's physiques, which are shown in the buff, as well as the Renaissance-style endpapers. Light soiling and wear.

        Arpophyllum giganteum

      Henry John Elwes (1846-1922) was a British botanist, naturalist and author, celebrated for his travels throughout Asia, including the Himalayan Mountains, with the Geographical Section of the British Association and noted for his collection of lily specimens. In 1880 Elwes published a spectacular collection of prints depicting various species of one of the world's favorite flowers, the lily.The ?Monograph of the Genus Lilium? is the result of a collaborative effort, the organization and text by Elwes and the images by renowned botanical illustrator Walter Hood Fitch. Although Fitch's drawings for Elwes' ?Genus Lilium? were the last great works of his career, in his lifetime, Fitch produced nearly 10,000 illustrations.This hand-colored folio size lithograph, Arpophyllum giganteum, measures 17.5? x 12.5? and is in excellent condition with cropped edges. This flower, commonly known at the Hyacinth orchid, is colored with rich green stems and leaves and vibrant purple flowers, each expertly detailed.

        Chinesisches Ahnenportrait.

      China, um 1880. - Papier, Seide bemalt. 166:100 cm. Alt auf Leinen aufkaschiert. Farbenprächtige Darstellung eines älteren Beamtenpaars der späten Qing-Dynastie in Zeremonialgewändern. Die Hutzier des Mannes, anscheinend ein Silberfasan, weist auf den (hohen) fünften Rand in der chinesischen Zivilbeamtenhierarchie hin. Beide thronen in streng repräsentativer Frontalität - der Mann auf Tigerfell - unter einem weit gerafften Vorhang. Die realistisch durchgeformten, ungewöhnlich kleinen Köpfe und die flächig-dekorativ ausgestalteten Körper erscheinen vor ungestaltetem Grund, um die Wirkung voll auf die Dargestellten zu konzentrieren, während sich der ganze Reichtum chinesischer Dekorationskunst im unteren Bereich entfaltet, wo ein Fliesenboden mit ornamentalen und figürlichen Motiven (Blumen, Früchte, Tiere) eine breite abschließende Bordüre bildet. Die reiche Bildsymbolik (u. a. Lotosblüten, Fledermäuse, Kraniche, Granatäpfel) verweist auf Glück, langes Leben, Fruchtbarkeit usw. - Ahnenporträts waren wichtige Objekte der Verehrung im Rahmen des chinesischen Ahnenkults. "Die farbenprächtigen, aufwändig gestalteten Ganzkörperporträts [.] wurden anlässlich der Neujahrsfestlichkeiten hervorgeholt und [.] in der Empfangshalle des Hauses aufgehängt [.] Auf diese Weise wurden die Ahnen zurück ins Haus eingeladen und auch wieder verabschiedet" (Noda, S. 192). - Überstehende Leinwandränder mit Läsuren; stellenweise unbedeutend knittrig. Eine Stelle mit winziger Farbabplatzung. Eingerollt. Vgl. Noda, Renate. Grab- & Ahnenkult. In: Gold und Jade. Sensationsfunde aus chinesischen Herrschergräbern. Kat. Kunsthalle Leoben, 2007, Kat.

        Tibetan Blockprints / Undated Tibetan Buddhist Religious Texts, circa 1800s

      Unknown: Unknown, 1880 Date undetermined [probaby 19th century] / place undetermined [probably Mongolia]. 26 parchment leaves, 3.5" tall x 8.75" long, block printed on both sides (except for two), with some hand annotation [also undated]. At least one of the leaves has an embossed watermark in Cyrillic [Russian] characters. Marginal age-toning, some leaves with moisture stains not affecting the legibility of the text. Previous owner was told they these came from a Mongolian monastery in which Tibetan Buddhism was spoken and, of course, written. There are four separate sets of folios [leaves] and at least 2 full texts among them, most likely all being prayer texts used in daily liturgies, read or chanted during Buddhist services. Their size and length appear to be that. Two sets of these folios may or may not be complete books - those who have looked at Tibetan numbering systems will know that difficulty - but two texts are very clearly complete books. There are 26 folios (leaves) in all, with writing on both sides (except for two), hence 50 pages of actual text. There were clearly several hands at work in these; see scans. L103

Zweibrücken, den 16 Januar/18 November 1881". Emil [Von] Schlagintweit (1835-1904) was a German scholar who in this work collected the travel notes of his brothers, the explorers Hermann (1826-1882), Adolf (1829-1857), Eduard (1831-1866), and Robert (1833-1885), who travelled throughout India and adjacent countries, in particular Nepal and Tibet. Emil remained in Germany, but it is thanks to him that the observations made by his brothers were compiled and published. The work is richly illustrated with scenes of daily life, and views of cities and old or important buildings. Some light spotting, mainly in the margins of volume 1, otherwise a fine set.

        Glaspressstein-Knopf-Sammlung. Vermutlich aus Gablonz in Böhmen.

      ca 1880 - HLdr-Vertretermappe, 300 Knöpfe eingenäht, Mappe fleckig, Knöpfe etwas angeschmutzt In handbeschrifteten Feldchen eingenäht, meist nach Farben getrennt. Jablonec nad Nossou (Gablonz an der Neisse, Sudentenland) in der heutigen Tschechei (1930 waren dort 86 % deutschsprachig). Der Begriff ?Böhmisches Glas? ist eigentlich ein Sammelbegriff und umfasste nicht nur Böhmen, sondern auch Mähren und den gesamten Schlesischen Raum. Böhmische Rohware wurde teils in Nürnberg und Schlesien veredelt, umgekehrt wurde aus Mangel an Rohware auch Glas aus den Mährischen Höhen durch nordböhmische Glasschleifer veredelt. Es wird vermutet, daß in Böhmen seit dem 11. Jahrhundert kontinuierlich Glas erzeugt wurde. Sein Ruhm und sein eigenständiger Stilcharakter beginnt jedoch erst in der zweiten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhunderts. 6000 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
