        Baudelaire Photograph

      1880. BAUDELAIRE, Charles. Portrait for La Galerie Contemporaine by Etienne Carjat. Woodburytype print with artist's information printed on mount, 225 x 185 mm, matted and framed in polished dark wood. [Paris: Carjat, ca. 1862; published in La Galerie Contemporaine in 1878]. |~||~||~||~| |~||~||~||~||~| A literary photographic masterpiece. "Among the many nineteenth-century portraits, Carjat's Baudelaire has become an outstanding icon" (Icons of Photography). This carbon print was published posthumously in the popular anthology La Galerie Contemporaine; it is widely recognized as a literary photographic masterpiece, and has been continually reproduced down to the present day. "While portraits by Nadar strongly emphasize the poet's vain, foppish side, Carjat depicts the forty-one-year-old in the pose of a lonely intellectual who, bothered by all this picture-taking business, looks into the camera with an impatient and distrustful expression. Yet this very picture was to become the most renowned of all Baudelaire photographs" (Icons of Photography). Etienne Carjat (1828-1906), photographer of Daumier, Verlaine, and Rimbaud among other luminaries, created this brilliantly cast portrait of Baudelaire, perhaps the single most famous photograph of La Galerie Contemporaine and one of the finest literary photographic portraits of the nineteenth century. In fine condition. Victoria & Albert Museum, Guide to Early Photographic Processes, p. 91 and plate 30. Newhall, The History of Photography, p. 70. International Center of Photography, Encyclopedia of Photography, p. 99. On the Art of Fixing a Shadow, p. 101, plate 76. Langer, Icons of Photography, p. 55.

        Lilium tigrinum

      London 1880 - 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, Lilium tigrinum, measures 21.75” x 15” and is in mint condition. This lily, commonly known as the Tiger Lily, is richly colored with a pale stem but vibrant green leaves and decorative red-orange flowers and stamen. The flowers are illustrated in many states of bloom. In addition to the flower, sections of the bulb and root and a sketch-like drawing of the plant in its entirety add a scientific aspect to this magnificent lithograph.

        Museo Español de Antigüedades bajo la dirección del Dr. D. . con la colaboración de los primeros escritores y artistas de España.

      Madrid, José Gil Dorregaray-Fortanet, 1872-1880 - Gran fol. (44 x 32 cm.) 9 tomos (de 11) encuadernados en 8 vols. en cartoné de época, lomos lisos, doble tejuelo verde. Infinidad de litografías y cromolitografías a toda plana. La revista artística más significativa de la época. Publicada por entregas o números como toda publicación periódica, resulta hoy prácticamente imporible de encontrar completa. El presente ejemplar consta de 9 tomos (a excepción del primero y el último, el 1 y el 11). Palau: “Esta suntuosa obra destinada al estudio de la arqueología española, tanto en la Edad Antigua como de la Edad Media, con interesantes monografías de los principales arqueólogos del país.” “El Museo Español de Antigüedades supuso, pese a su breve vida –entre 1872 y 1880– una interesante experiencia en el panorama de las publicaciones de la época. Dirigida por Juan de Dios de la Rada y delgado acogió las intervenciones de F. Fita, Amador de los Ríos, Vilanova y Piera. Su apariencia monumental remitía a las grandes publicaciones europeas del siglos XIX. Los diferentes números incluyeron una incipiente parte gráfica donde destacaba el uso de los grabados, la litografía y la cromolitografía. La presencia de estos procedimientos testimonia cómo se prefirió la calidad sobre la cantidad y se recurrió, por tanto, a la litografía y al caro procedimiento de la cromolitografía. Varios dibujantes y pintores contribuyeron en esta parte gráfica. En otras ocasiones fueron los propios autores quienes aportaron los dibujos. En la obra se hacía una defensa acérrima de la Historia, defenciendo su importancia, intentando promover esta incipiente concienciación. Intentaba vincular el conocimiento de la Historia con el progreso de las naciones. Destacaba su defensa y positiva valoración de la arqueología como fuente histórica. El Museo Español de Antigüedades se convirtió en referencia, dentro de un escaso panorama gráfico. En cualquier caso, su aportación resulta ejemplar de la creciente importancia y demanda que iba tomando la parte gráfica.” [González Reyero, La fotografía en la arqueología española, pp. 375-376] Palau, 186474 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Sie ist die Tochter von Paul Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1879-1956), dessen Vater Paul der Sohn von Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy war! Paul Mendelssohn-Bartholdy der Ältere hatte 1867 zusammen mit Carl Alexander von Martius im Berliner Vorort Rummelsburg die Gesellschaft für Anilinfabrikation mbH gegründet, die 1873 zur Actien-Gesellschaft für Anilin-Fabrication (Agfa) wurde. Paul Mendelssohn Bartholdy der Jüngere wurde, wie sein Vater auch, Direktor der Agfa, ab 1925 dann der I.G. Farben, und leitete unter anderem die Produktion von Fotoplatten im Berliner Agfa-Werk. Cecile, das einzige Kind von Paul und Johanna Mendelssohn Bartholdy, wurde am 8. Juni 1933, gute vier Monate nach der Machtergreifung durch die Nationalsozialisten, in Berlin geboren. 1933 wurde Paul Mendelssohn Bartholdy aus dem Direktorenamt bei der I.G. Farben gedrängt. Die Brüder Paul und Otto gingen noch 1933 zusammen mit ihren Familien ins Exil. - Paul Mendelssohn-Bartholdy was the youngest son of the founder of the Agfa company, Paul Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1841-1880). Like his father he promoted in chemistry. He became a director at Agfa and from 1925 onwards at I.G. Farben, the company that was as combination of Agfa, Bayer and BASF. In 1921 he married Johanna Nauheim, a British citizen, in London. In 1927 they moved to their new villa in Berlin-Tiergarten (Rauchstrasse 17). They had a daugher in 1933, Cecile. In 1933 he was forced by the nazis to resign from his position at I.G. Farben. He emigrated to Switzerland and with the help of the artseller Justin Thannhauser he managed to bring his art collection to Basel. But in Basel many works were sold and it is unclear if this was ordered by Thannhauser or Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. The collection included eight works by Van Gogh, five by Picasso and work from Renoir, Monet, Rousseau, Braque and Matisse. Most pictures ended up in the USA. From Basel he moved on to London, but after his wife died in 948 he returned to Switzerland. He died in 1956 in Basel-Riehen.

        Meadow Lark (Sturnella Neglecta)

      Great Britain:: Original Watercolor,, [c.1880-1900].. Matted in Rag Board. Fine/ . Fine original watercolor on gilt-edged watercolor card, with new year greeting stamped in gilt on verso. (12 x 15.8 cm). Matted in Rag. Condition: Fine, with minor aged paper remains to verso corners from previous mount. Penciled on verso: (JI.A) Meadow Lark (Sturnella Neglecta) Brown Back Yellow breast. All the more alluring by want of attribution, this vivid watercolor of a Western Meadowlark was painted not by a professional artist, field naturalist or explorer but by an amateur, or armchair, traveler/naturalist /painter; quite plausibly a young Victorian gentlewoman who would have learned the art of nature painting, as was the custom, and whose inspiration would have come from her estate's fine collection of grand natural history color plate volumes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The work is clearly stylized by a primitive eye, yet executed with an accomplished and refined hand; the technique is learned. The resulting composition is one of dramatic charm.

        Aunt Louisa's Coloured Gift Books

Stamped pictorial front board with gilt lettering. With Kronheim prints. A wonderfully illustrated children's Bible. Scarce. Joseph Martin Kronheim was born in Magdeburg, Germany on 26th October 1810. He moved to Edinburgh, via Paris, when he was 22 before becoming established in London around 1846. In 1850, Kronheim acquired a license to operate the Baxter process and adapted it, using zinc blocks instead of wood blocks. This, however, resulted in a flatter finish. He then turned to lithography for a short time, but soon returned to printing by the Baxter process. Condition: The binding is firm. The pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and small closed tear. There is a small ink inscription on the front endpapers. Overall the condition is very good. The plates are very bright..
