Lederschnitt-Einband aus braunem Kalbsleder mit vier intarsierten weiß-blauen Rautenwappen von P. Attenkofer, k. Hofbuchbinder, München.. Prachtvolle Wiedergabe des berühmten Manuskripts von Hans Ostendorffer, gefertigt 1541 bis 1544, das die Turniere der Jahre 1510 bis 1518 darstellt, aufgezeichnet durch den Wappenmeister Hans Schenk. Es wurde im 30jährigen Krieg verschleppt und nach seiner Rückführung durch Kronprinz Ludwig im Jahr 1816 von Fr. von Schlichtegroll neu herausgegeben und durch die Brüder Clemens und Theobald Senefelder in Lithographie abgebildet. "Die damals hergestellten Exemplare sind seit Jahren vergriffen und die Steine abgeschliffen, so dass ich eine neue Facsimile-Ausgabe nach dem Original angefertigt habe, welche den vielen Interessenten, die bisher vergeblich nach einem Exemplar gesucht haben, willkommen sein wird." (Der Herausgeber im Vorwort). Das Werk ist König Ludwig II. von Bayern gewidmet. Das Verzeichnis der Turnierenden benennt deren Namen und ihre Devisen - darunter zahlreicher bayerischer Uradel. Die Tafeln sind im Gegensatz zu der Ausgabe von Schlichtegroll nicht zusammengesetzt. Sie sind hervorragend farbenprächtig handkoloriert und ausdrucksvoll mit Silber gehöht. Der aufwendige Einband lässt auf ein Dedikations-Exemplar für das Haus Wittelsbach schließen . - Innen bis auf einen kleinen Einriss in der Falttafel tadellos frisch erhalten, der Rücken mit kleiner Fehlstelle.

        Original cartoon: "A Two-legged Camel", pencil, ink and wash on paper, signed ("Tho Worth/80/New York")

      New York, 1880 - Thomas Worth (1834- 1917), "Uncle Tommy" as he was known to all his acquaintances and friends, sold his first comic sketch to Nathaniel Currier in 1855; he was to become one of the most popular of Currier & Ives's artists. He specialized in comic and caricature work--one of his "Darktown Comics" lithographs sold 73,000 copies--but also did racing and sporting scenes, as well as other subjects. In addition, he illustrated Dickens's Old Curiosity Shop, and contributed to "Judge" and other periodicals. He was a careful craftsman, often revising his work until he had achieved the best possible effect, and was noted for his enormous personal charm 13-3/4 x 11 inches. The caption: "Mr. Johnson, leaving his office for his country home loaded as usual, meets a French Dressmaker" [who says] "Ah Monsieur Johnson--I catch you just in time, here are three new dresses for Madame, you will carry them very careful and not muss them.". Old folds, else near fine. Peters, Currier & Ives, I, p. 70 et seq

        Album of Botanical Watercolours Devoted to Edible and Medicinal Flowering Plants Native to Europe and North America.

      - Circa 1880. Album of watercolours devoted to edible and medicinal flowering plants native to Europe and North America. Contains 52 images hand drawn and painted onto 14 leaves. Ten of these are named in manuscript, in both English and Latin, and also classified by and 'Plant Tribe' Crown Folio, padded diamond-embossed and gilt tooled green leather boards. A large volume with thick gilt-edged leaves. Fraying to boards, otherwise very good condition, internally clean and bright. This album is very heavy, weighing 8 pounds when packed, please keep this into consideration for international shipping. A pleasing artistic work, indicating a unique study, by an unidentified watercolorist who had a special interest in wild flowering plants useful in medicine and cuisine. Many of these are were used by colonial settlers and Indian tribes in North America. Some were associated with superstitions and folklore. Highlights include a splendid drawing of a purple orchid, and a vivid red poppy, followed by numerous other cherished iconic flowers, such as the rose, daisy, water lily, Scottish thistle, sunflower, and a full page illustration of the ever popular foxglove, or digitalis. Beautiful watercolours at the beginning of the volume, all of which are identified, include the Primrose, Viola, Geranium, Veronica, Cinquefoil Potentilla, Caltha palustris (Marsh Marigold), Geum urbanum, and Stitchwort. Among the plant groups represented and named here, all of which are herbaceous flowering plants, are Violaceae, Ranunculaceae, Primulaceae, and the Geum.
