        Album of Photographs from the Second Afghan War

      Murree: John Burke (Late Baker & Burke),, c.1880. Landscape folio (337 × 445 mm) Contemporary burgundy half morocco, brown morocco-grained boards, gilt rules to spine bands, and edges of spine and corners, all edges gilt, white moiré effect endpapers, lacking the rear free. 33 mounted albumen photographs, the majority c.230 × 290 mm , a few slightly smaller formats, captioned, and numbered according to Burke's catalogue of 1884. Some what rubbed and stained, cloth a touch faded, some blank leaves added at the rear where a number had been removed, mounting leaves lightly browned and with some marginal fingersoiling, the prints themselves in the main retaining a good deep violet-sepia tone, just a few showing some fade or discolouration at the margins. At around seventeen years old John Burke travelled out to India as an assistant apothecary to the Royal Artillery, but he spent very little time in the service before forming a partnership with William Baker, a retired sergeant of the 87th Regiment, in a photographic studio; "the first commercial photographers in Peshawar and in the North-West Frontier … [ranking] among the earliest war, news and landscape photographers in the Indian subcontinent … [becoming] over the next decades the first photographers to work in large areas of northern British India and the independent feudal realms of Kashmir and Afghanistan" (Khan, From Kashmir to Kabul, p.11). Outside of the extensive archive of the photographs themselves, they left little record of their lives, taking a prominent place "among the finest forgotten photographers of the British Raj". Whatever the reason for the work of their studio so often being passed over in favour of better-known photographers, Bourne and Shepherd for example, it is not due to any technical or aesthetic shortcomings; "THe chemicals and procedures they used have aged better than those of many others … [and] the rich composition of their images is immediately apparent. In their time, they won many of the top photography awards in competitions throughout British India". Burke's work was also far more widely published in Graphic and the ILN than that of any of his competitors. This excellence has not been lost on genuine connoisseurs of Indian photography, one of the first modern publications of Raj photography Worswick and Embree's The Last Empire … - based on Worswick's pioneering collection, now at the Getty Research Institute - included more photographs by Burke and Baker than by any of their contemporaries. "Burke accompanied the Peshawar Valley Field Force, one of three British Anglo-Indian army columns deployed in the Second Afghan War (1878-80), despite being rejected for the role of official photographer. He financed his trip by advance sales of his photographs 'illustrating the advance from Attock to Jellalabad' … Burke's two-year Afghan expedition produced an important visual document of the region where the strategies of the Great Game were played out" (BL on-line cataloguing). Thirty images in this album can be identified in the BL India Office Select Materials photo album 487, the remaining three, showing a view of Mackeson's Bridge, and two in the Landi Kotal Pass, have been traced in the 1884 catalogue of Burke's work. Armorial bookplate of Stewart-Mackenzie of Seaforth, to the front pastedown. Colonel James Alexander Francis Humberston Stewart-Mackenzie, 1st Baron Seaforth, was educated at Glenalmond College, Harrow, and Sandhurst, commissioned 1867 into the 9th Lancers. He served for over thirty years, retiring as the regiment's colonel. During the Second Afghan War he saw action at Maidan, Killa Kazi, Kabul, Sherpur and Kandahar, wounded, MiD twice. Subsequently he served as military secretary to Sir Mountstuart Grant Duff, Governor of Madras, 1886-8. Some wonderful images with a splendid association.

        Fourteen Months in Canton

      London.: Macmillan.. 1880.. Black and white line illustrations, 444pp + 43 pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. Some light spotting, half title diagonal crease. Little wear extremities, upper cover creased, 19th century inscription front free endpaper. Good copy of a scarce title. The author whose husband John Henry Gray, was at the time of the book?'s publication Archdeacon of Hong Kong, was resident in Canton for the 14 month period between April 1877 and May 1878. Archdeacon Gray had been Chaplain to the British community from 1851 until he left Canton in 1878. Their residence must have been in the parsonage to Christ Church, Shameen, in the British concession hard by the Chinese City, opened after the Anglo-French China War of 1860. Mrs Gray was stimulated by what she saw around her. Her lively, detailed letters to her mother which form the text of this book give a fascinating picture of China and the Chinese in Canton and surrounding areas at the time. That Mrs Gray was unusually open minded is immediately evident on reading these letters, and not surprisingly she found herself to be rather one of a kind in European circles, remarking as she does to her mother in one letter: "I have not mentioned my early morning ramble in the city to any of the European community. I fear they may think me strong-minded; and what is the use of speaking of these things to those who take no interest in the manners and customs of the singular people among whom they dwell?" Archdeacon Gray was the author of Walks in the City of Canton, published in Hong Kong in 1875, and of the two-volume China, A History of the Laws, Manners, and Customs of the People, like Mrs Gray?'s book also published by Macmillan in London in 1878. He was therefore very knowledgeable about Canton and the Chinese people, and his knowledge of the city must have been very useful to his wife. She is, however, an important, though neglected, writer in her own right. A charming, female eye-witness account. (JH, 2014). .

        Views of Nizhniy-Novgrorod.

      s 1880 - 13 albumen prints (from app. 11 x 15 cm to 16 x 22 cm): 3 by Dmitriev, 9 by Karelin, photographer's credits printed on all cards apart from one; fair tonal range, some spotting to cards, repaired marginal tear to one card. Collection of views by two award-wining photographers - Dmitriev (1858 - 1948) and Karelin (1837 - 1906), who almost single-handedly created an image of XIX century Nizhniy-Novgorod. By the mid-19th century, Nizhny-Novgorod was firmly established as the trade capital of the Russian Empire. The all-Russia industrial and art exhibition was held in Nizhny Novgorod in 1896. Other industries gradually developed, and by the dawn of the 20th century it was a first-rank industrial hub as well. Henry Ford helped build a large truck and tractor plant (GAZ) in the late 1920s, sending along engineers and mechanics, including future labour leader Walter Reuther Famous writer Maxim Gorky was born there in 1868. During his lifetime, the city was renamed Gorky following his return to the Soviet Union in 1932 on invitation of Joseph Stalin. The city bore his name until 1991. During that time, the city was closed to foreigners to safeguard the security of Soviet military research. An end to the "closed" status of the city has accompanied the reinstatement of the city's original name in 1990.

        A book from the James Garfield library, name and date-stamped one month before winning the Presidential election and undoubtedly used in his short term. An incredible Presidential book rarity

      "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 rare 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 scarce books is described below:The Agricultural Progress of The Nation in Cheapening the Food of America and Europe, examined by Samuel B. Ruggles; Henry Bessey, Publisher, New York 1880. Tall folio, 31 pps. With a 19 page appendix and a tipped-in, hand colored, fold-out map of the United States on back free end paper. Stamped, ? J.A. Garfield / Oct 6 1880? on the front free end paper. Light scuffs and soiling to exterior. Interior toned with foxing and minor worming to endpapers, else near fine condition.In October, 1880, James Garfield was a Congressman from Ohio and the Republican candidate for President. He would win the presidential election one month later. This book of facts and figures would have held great interest to Garfield. In a speech he delivered to the House of Representatives in 1869 regarding census information, Garfield declared, ?The developments of statistics are causing history to be rewritten. Till recently, the historian studied nations in the aggregate, and gave us only the story of princes, dynasties, sieges, and battles...Now statistical inquiry leads him into the hovels, homes, workshops, mines, fields...and all other places where human nature displays its weakness and its strength. In these explorations he discovers the seeds of national growth and decay, and thus becomes the prophet of his generation...? Garfield no doubt would have noted the reference to the impending presidential election on page 21, ?It would be idle to expect any wholesome and efficient legislation on the subject of our agricultural necessities during the feverish excitement of the present season, when the nation is passing through the periodical and constitutionally recurring quadrennial distemper attending the genesis of a President, so utterly demoralizing and distracting the swarms of partisan politicians of every grade and stripe hovering around, and some of them actually finding their way into,...the forty-eight legislative halls between the two oceans. When the present heated term shall have passed away...the farmers of our country...might do wisely to...examin[e] the immense agricultural statistics...They might also...much facilitate the proper distribution of the great bodies of agricultural immigrants, now landing weekly by tens of thousands in our seaports, forming, historically, a part of what a far-seeing political writer of our age so grandly depicts as ?the great procession of nations, incessantly crossing the Atlantic, with the solemnity, dignity and certainty of a providential event.??"

      c. 1880 - Hand-coloured albumen print. Very good tonal range and in good condition, numbered and titled in negative. Dimensions: 262 by 202mm. Kusakabe was the great Japanese commercial photographer of the nineteenth century. There is a direct relationship between the work of Beato, Stillfried and Kusakabe which is the culmination of a cross-cultural view of Japan during the period. It is probable that Kusakabe began as Stillfried's operator, eventually buying his stock when the latter departed from Japan in the mid 1880s. He operated his own firm until 1912, when he disappeared from view. Kusakabe's speciality was his penetrating studio portraits of the Japanese sitter.

Ogni tavola conservale veline originali. William Hogarth (1697-1764) fu non solo il più famoso pittore del Settecento inglese, ma anche il creatore di una scuola satirico-moralista anglosassone, dimostrando ai suoi concittadini che come strumento di satira il pennello o la matita sono più efficaci della penna. Dotato di forte personalità e di indiscutibile talento, introdusse nelle sue opere un piacevole e sferzante senso caricaturale che mise in ridicolo le follie, gli abusi, le stravaganze, le cattiverie della società anglosassone del suo tempo. Il presente "Complete Works", con tavole incise da grandi artisti dell'Ottocento inglese, raccoglie il "corpus" della sua produzione artistica, con accurati testi di riferimento ad opera di James Hannay (1827-1873) e John Trusler (1735-1820). 7000 gr.
