        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]

      "Illustrated with One Hundred Grand Compositions by Gustave Dore".

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.

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 contents of the Sketch of Johnson County originally appeared in The Iowa City Republican and were later published as a pamphlet by the Iowa City Board of Trade for the use of "all citizens desirous of furthering the interests of Johnson County and vicinity." The Iowa State Press was founded by Richard H. Sylvester in 1860 as a weekly Democratic newspaper. John P. Irish became editor in December 1864 and later took over ownership. Irish moved to California in 1882, and A.J. Hershire bought the business later that year. It is unclear when the Press began issuing the Annuals. As of October 2014 OCLC notes five institutions holding copies, all of which are dated between 1880-1886. The Annuals contain ornately detailed engravings by well-known artists. They contain lunar calendars, general and historical articles, the names of local government officers, voter information, and many advertisements of local businesses.

        Garfield?s signed copy of the 1880 <I>?Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland?</I> ? the year he was elected President

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below: Book, ?Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland January, 1880,? soft cover, 78 pages plus 269 page Appendix ?Development of the American Oyster,?, 5.5? x 9?. Annapolis: Maryland Republican Print., 1880. Signed ?J.A. Garfield? on the cover. Illustrated with charts and diagrams including ten plates ?Development of the Oyster.? Attached to the last page is a fold-out 21.5? x 36.5? United States Coast Survey color map, ?Coast Chart / Chesapeake Bay? (slight tear). Light soiling at the top and right edges of the cover. Foxing on the fore-edge.Housed in a custom blue-cloth covered clamshell case with ?Report of the / Commissioners / of Fisheries / of Maryland? stamped in gilt on a blue leather label at the top of the spine and, on lower portion, also in gilt, ?James Garfield?s / Signed Copy / 1880.? On January 13, 1880, the month this report was issued, U.S. Representative James A. Garfield was elected to the U.S. Senate for the term beginning March 4, 1881. On November 2, 1880, Garfield was elected President. At that moment he was a member of the House of Representatives, Senator-elect, and President-elect. On November 8th, he resigned from the House and on December 23rd, after the Electoral College met, he declined his January 1880 election to the Senate. On March 4, 1881, he was inaugurated President.

        (1) Electric Lamps. Letters Patent for an Invention of "IMPROVEMENTS IN ELECTRIC LAMPS, AND IN THE MATERIALS EMPLOYED IN THEIR CONSTRUCTION." [British Patent] No. 4933. + (2) Electric Lighting by Incandescence (Royal Institution of Great Britain. Weekly Evening Meeting, Friday, March 10, 1882. (Offprint). (3) Original handwritten letter, signed "J.W. Swan", to "G.S. Bruce Esquire", dated "June 8/85".

      [London, Eyre and Spottiswoode], 1880, 27th November + 1882 + 1885 (1): 8vo. Unbound. With a recent, discreete paper spine. A few smaller tears to extremities. 4 pp. + 1 plate (showing electric light bulbs].(2): 8vo. Original self-wrappers. Stitched at spine. Near mint.(3): 4 pages 8vo.. Scarce original printed patent for the seminal invention that is the incandescent light bulb. Though usually erroneously ascribed to Thomas Edison, it was in fact Joseph Swan who invented the light bulb and ended the dark ages. - Here sold together with the extremely scarce offprint of Swan's 1882 speech on his seminal invention as well as a highly important and interesting autograph letter on the same subject, namely "the new filament or "Artificial Silk" as I have been calling it", in which Swan also confirms his priority in invention and warns against letting the withsent speciman fall into the hands of lamp makers. Swan first publicly demonstrated his incandescent carbon lamp at a lecture for the Newcastle upon Tyne Chemical Society on December 18th 1878. However, after burning with a bright light for some minutes in his laboratory, the lamp broke down due to excessive current. By 1879 Swan had solved the problem of incandescent electric lighting by means of a vacuum lamp and he publicly demonstrated a working lamp to a larger audience. He was not completely satisfied, however, as there were still some fundamental problems attached to it that would make it impossible to consider the invention completed. By 1880, however, he had finally reached perfection. The striking improvements consisted in the carbonised paper filaments being discarded in favour of "parchmentised" cotton thread. Finally, he deemed his milestone invention worthy of filing a patent, and on that memorable day of November 27th 1880, he was granted that most important British Patent No. 4933, "Electric Lamps", marking man's final conquest of darkness. "My invention relates to electric lamps in which is produced by passing an electric current through a conductor of carbon so as to render it incandescent, said carbon conductor being enclosed in an air tight and vacuous or partially vacuous glass vessel.It is well known that the practical efficiency of the kind of electric lamp above described has hitherto been impaired by the want of homogeneity and compactness in the carbon conductors, and by the imperfection of the contact betwixt it and the metallic conductors which convey the electric current to it. I have found that an exceedingly solid, homogenous, and elastic form of carbon, peculiarly adapted for the formation of arches, spirals, or other forms of conductor for electric lamps, can be produced from cotton thread which has been subjected to the action of sulpuric acid of such strength as to cause a similar kind of change to take place in the thread to that which takes place in the bibulous paper in the well known process of making vegetable parchment." (Lines 6-19 in the present patent).From the time of his patent, Swan began installing light bulbs in homes and landmarks in England. His house, Underhill on Kells Lane in Low Fell, Gateshead, was the world's first to have working light bulbs installed. In 1881 he founded his own company, The Swan Electric Light Company and began commercial production of his light bulb.The invention of the light bulb is a turning point in the history of mankind, like the wheel or the invention of the printing press. As McLuhan put it in his groundbreaking main work, "a light bulb creates an environment by its mere presence." (p. 8). It does not have content in itself, as e.g. a newspaper, but it is a medium with a social effect strong enough to change the way we think, act, and behave. A light bulb enables people to create spaces during nighttime that would otherwise be enveloped by darkness. Electric light is "pure information" - a medium without a message. "Whether the light is being used for brain surgery or night baseball is a matter of indifference." Both activities, he explains are in some way the content of electric light, as they could not exist without the light. The medium that is electric light shapes and controls the scale and form of human association and action. The question of who the actual inventor of the light bulb was has been greatly debated ever since those crucial years of 1879-80. Working on the invention at about the same time as Swan, but independently, was Thomas Edison. In America, Edison had been working on copies of Swan's original light bulb. Though Swan had beaten him to this goal, Edison obtained patents (November 1879) for a fairly direct copy of the Swan light, and started an advertising campaign that claimed that he was the real inventor. Swan, who was less interested in making money from the invention, but who had still established the first commercial manufacture of incandescent light bulbs, agreed that Edison could sell the lights in America while he retained the rights in Britain. They soon agreed, however, to work together.Following his successful laboratory experiments in 1878, Swan let two years pass before taking steps to patent his invention. It might be difficult to understand why Swan did not make more haste and let Edison beat him to it, but the answer seems to be fairly clear: "the principle of the carbon lamp had long been known. The fact that he had made this principle workable, was not in Swan's opinion capable of sustaining a patent." (The Pageant of the Lamp, p. 28). The patent that he saw fit to take out was that for the step in the process which made the light bulb perfectly functional and ready for commercial launch - only then did it make sense to take out the patent. In principle, Edison's earlier patent contains nothing new. Only with the patent by Swan, the true inventor of the light bulb, is the incandescent light bulb presented for the first time in it fully functioning form. Edison and Swan, both practical men, soon agreed to more or less simultaneous discovery of the light bulb, and they decided to cooperate. "As it was, the two inventors took the sensible view. Litigation would only have squandered their energies and resources; and in 1881 they wisely combined forces, their respective English companies being merged into the Edison & Swan United Electric Light Company Limited." (The Pageant of the Lamp, p. 29). "When the inventors united in a combination which gave them a virtual monopoly, it was Swan's parchmentised cellulose which glowed in the fine lamps of Edison and Swan." (The Pageant of the Lamp, p. 31).The Savoy in London, was the first public building in the world lit entirely by electricity. Swan supplied about 1,200 incandescent lamps, powered by an 88.3 kW (120hp) generator on open land near the theatre. The builder of the Savoy, Richard D'Oyly Carte, explained why he had introduced Swan's electric light: "The greatest drawbacks to the enjoyment of the theatrical performances are, undoubtedly, the foul air and heat which pervade all theatres. As everyone knows, each gas-burner consumes as much oxygen as many people, and causes great heat beside. The incandescent lamps consume no oxygen, and cause no perceptible heat."[15] The first generator proved too small to power the whole building, and though the entire front-of-house was electrically lit, the stage was lit by gas until 28 December 1881. At that performance, Carte stepped onstage and broke a glowing lightbulb before the audience to demonstrate the safety of Swan's new technology.THE INCLUDED LETTER reads: "I herewith send a specimen of the new filament or "Artificial Silk" as I have been calling it. It is as you are probably aware produced on the same principle as silk i.e. from a liquid which solidifies immediately after emission from aperture. Made thick it is very like silk-worm gut -- made thinner it is like hair. Very superior carbon filaments can be produced from it. I do not wish any of it to go into the hands of lamp makers. Therefore please return the specimen together with the lamp to the stand at the EXn (i.e. exhibition). I have told Howard Swan who has charge of my stand at the Exhn to let you have the Miner's Safety Lamp. I was the first to propose this application of the incandescent lamp & the first to actually make such a lamp. Very truly yours, J.W. Swan."

        Lilium martagonvar dalmaticum

      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 martagonvar dalmaticum, measures 21.75? x 15? and is in excellent condition with small foxing marks.This lily, commonly known as the Martagon or Turk's Cap Lily, is richly colored with a green stem and leaves which rise to lush purple and pink colored flowers and buds with yellow stamen. This lithograph is extremely well detailed and portrays the flowers naturalistically. The addition to the flowers alone, sections of the bulb and root and different variations of the flower are also illustrated, giving this lithograph a scientific influence.
