        Street Incidents

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881. 4to. (10 5/8 x 8 inches). [4], 45-100pp. 21 woodburytypes, each with printed caption and red ruled border. Publisher's green pictorial cloth, decoratively stamped in gilt and black (expertly recased) "The first photographic social documentation of any kind" (Gernsheim). Thomson's photographs in Street Life in Londonand the present Street Incidents , and the commentary upon the images by Thomson and Adolphe Smith, depict a London in which life is a harsh and continuous struggle. The characters on view here are familiar to us more from Dickens' novels or from an idea of the Whitechapel of Jack the Ripper than from any nostalgic image of a strait-laced or patrician Victorianism. Thomson and Smith are, however, sympathetic to the objects of their study and seem intent on cataloguing the variety of types to be found rather than attempting any Barnum-like freakshow. As Thomson himself writes: "The precision and accuracy of photography enables us to present true types of the London poor and shield us from the accusation of either underrating or exaggerating individual peculiarities of appearance."It is "a pioneering work of social documentation in photographs and words ... one of the most significant and far-reaching photobooks in the medium's history" (Parr & Badger).This copy the second abridged issue, with variant title (i.e., renamed Street Incidents ) and complete with 21 plates and text leaves numbered 45-100. The history of the production of this issue is not well known. However, internal evidence, when compared to the first edition of Street Life , which contains 36 photographs and text leaves numbered 1-100, reveal that Street Incidents comprises everything from Street Life , both text and photographs, following page 44. The only changes would appear to be additional plate numbers below the captions, as well as page numbers above the images. It would seem likely that the publisher had a remainder of the latter portion of Street Life , and re-issued what was available with a new title, without credit to Thomson, as a new work.The images in Street Incidents comprise: A Convict's Home; The Wall Worker; Covent Garden Labourers; Halfpenny Ices; Black Jack; The Cheap Fish of St. Giles; Cast-iron Billy; Worker's on the "Silent Highway"; The Street Fruit Trade; The London Boardmen; The Water-cart; "Mush-Fakers" and Ginger-Beer Makers; November Effigies; "Hookey Alf" of Whitechapel; The Crawlers; Italian Street Musicians; The Street Locksmith; The Seller of Shell-fish; Flying Dustmen; Old Furniture; The Independent Shoeblack. Cf. Hasselblad 42; cf. Gernsheim, p. 447; cf. Truthful Lens 169; cf. Parr & Badger I:p.48.

        Album of theatrical photographs, prints, original art and clippings relating to the career of French stage actor Clément-Just

      [Paris], 1881. 14 albumen and 3 salted paper prints (10-1/2 x 8 in.) mounted on album leaves, most of Clément-Just in costume, 5 cartes-de-visite and 3 cabinet cards of Clément-Just, all signed ("C. Just") and many captioned on the mount with title of play and date, with 3 original watercolor sketches and numerous prints. Oblong folio. Album leaves worn, some separated at the gutter, photographs generally fine and unfaded, some imperfections in the developing processes or deteriorations to a few prints, album worn, covers detached. With binder's ticket of Deschamps, Paris on front pastedown. Personal Scrapbook of French Stage Actor Clément-Just The personal photo album and scrapbook of the celebrated 19th-century French stage actor Clément-Just, with striking vintage albumen and salted paper print photographs of the actor in costume, all signed by Clément-Just and many captioned with the name of the play and the theater where it was performed. Clément-Just specialized in historical costume dramas, plays with titles such as Mazarin, Henri II, La Prise de Pékin, La Chouanne, Jeanne D'Arc and Monte Cristo, and the photographs are noteworthy for their elaborate display of costume. Clément-Just is nearly unrecognizable from photograph to photograph as he undergoes extreme changes in costume, make-up and hair style. Laid-in to the album is a collection of contemporary French theater newspaper clippings concerning Clemént-Just's career, including an 1875 issue of Paris-Theatre which is adorned on its front page with a cliché print of the actor.

        Cobwebs and Cables

      London: Religious Tract Society, n.d. (not after 1881). FIRST EDITION. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. 8vo. viii, 365 pp. With woodcut illustrations in the text. Original publisher's cloth, gilt extra.1881). Original publisher's cloth, elaborately decorated with spider webs on front cover and spine (slightly leaning)RARE FIRST EDITION. THIS IS THE ONLY COPY ON THE MARKET. PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR. Hesba Stretton (1832-1911) was the nom de plume of Sarah Smith, a very popular (and very prolific) English author of religious books for children. The name Hesba came from the initials of her siblings. She was the daughter of a bookseller (sic!). A tangled web of misery and trouble, this captivating story describes a man's decision to sin out of desperation to serve the one he loves. "It soon becomes clear that one lie from a "truthful" man is more hurtful than all the lies of a liar. Those who yield to its power engage in an intricate path of falsehood-an entangling maze-that ever deepens as one lie builds upon another. As you wrestle with the characters in this engaging drama, rest assured that your confidence will grow, not in man, but in our loving, forgiving God." (SOURCE: Reprint edition, preface). INSCRIBED: "For our cousin Annie Hope, with Lizzie and Hesba Stretton's love. Christmas, 1881." The delightful Victorian "spider-web" bookbinding is a joy to behold; we anticipate that we will forever regret selling this particular rare book.

Soule (1815-1891) penned the line 14 years earlier in the title of his editorial in the Terra Haute, Indiana, "Express.? John Babson Lane Soule was later Professor of Ancient Languages in Blackburn University, Illinois, for eleven years, then pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago. After seven years in this position, he resigned, and retired from active public duties.There have been newspaper reports as early as 1890 attributing the advice to Soule. The August 17, 1890, edition of the ?Los Angeles Times? reports that ?an old timer at the Chicago club? said the ?advice to young men, ?Go west,? so generally attributed to Horace Greeley was not original with him ... It all came about this way: John L.B. Soule was the editor of The Terre Haute Express back in the 50?s and one day in ?51, if I remember right, he and Dick Thompson, afterward secretary of war [actually Hayes Navy Secretary] were covering in the former?s sanctum. Thompson had just finished advising Soule to go west and grow up with the country and was praising his talents as a writer. ?Why, John,? he said, ?You could write an article that would be attributed to Horace Greeley if you tried.? ?No, I couldn?t,? responded Mr. Soule modestly. ?I?ll bet I couldn?t. ?I?ll bet a barrel of flour you can if you?ll promise to try your best, the flour to go to some deserving poor person.? ?All right. I?ll try,? respond Soule.""He did try, writing a column editorial on the subject of discussion ?" the opportunities offered to young men by the west. He started in by saying Horace Greeley could never have given a young man better advice than that contained in the words, ?Go west, young man.? Of course the advice wasn?t quoted from Greeley, merely compared to what he might have said, but in a few weeks the exchange began coming into The Express office with the epigram reprinted and accredited to Greeley almost universally ... The New York Tribune came out editorially, reprinted The Express article, and said in a foot note: 'The expression of this sentiment has been attributed to the editor of The Tribune erroneously. But so heartily does he concur in the advice it gives that he indorses most heartily the epigrammatic advice of The Terre Haute Express, and joins in saying ?Go west, young man, go west.??The ?Boston Daily Globe,? November 3, 1907, begins an article, ?When John L. Soule of Terre Haute wrote the famous words popularly attributed to Horace Greeley, ?Go west, young man, and grow up with the country,? it was obvious that he considered the West a land of opportunity: a new and all but unknown region well suited to youth and industry...?Photocopies of the two articles are present.

        Large archive of original art, sketches, studies and notebooks by Max Weber and Helaine Blum

      Very good, in general. Large archive of original art, sketches, studies and notebooks by Max Weber and Helaine Blum. The collection documents the working student-teacher relationship between the two artists - with many of the notebooks having been used in Weber's lessons to Blum. The works by Weber, both sketches and finished, show his move from the abstraction prevalent in his early work to his later representational style. Blum's work included here encompasses her lesson notebooks as well as sketches and studies used in preparation for her sculptural work. In addition, the collection includes 2 notebooks ascribed by Helaine Blum to George Grosz, and a large oil portrait by Blum's daughter Maryann, as well as two books on art given by Weber to Blum; one with an intimate inscription, the other with his notes and extra-illustrated with original sketches. Max Weber (1881-1961) immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 10. He travelled extensively before returning to New York to become integral to the Cubist movement in America. Helaine Blum (c. 1910-2010), was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to a wealthy family. She travelled extensively throughout Europe before finally settling in New York to focus on painting and sculpture, under the tutelage of Max Weber and William Zorach. Her relationship with Weber became particularly close - the two corresponded for decades on matters personal and professional, including their thoughts on art, creativity, travel, and social and religious issues (primarily Judaism). Blum enjoyed tremendous success as a sculptor, producing bronze busts of the great luminaries of her day, including Albert Einstein, Linus Pauling, Max Weber, and David Ben-Gurion. A brief inventory of the collection follows.  Max Weber: 16 sketchbooks with studies, sketches and teaching notes; approximately 131 loose works, including still lifes, nudes and figure studies, and abstracts, executed in a variety of media (graphite, charcoal, watercolor); 13 portraits done in a variety of media, including one portrait of Helaine Blum; 5 framed pieces, including abstracts and still lifes. Helaine Blum: 5 sketchbooks, some of which were used during lessons with Max Weber; approximately 91 loose works, including street scenes, still lifes, figure studies, landscapes and sketches used in preparation for her bust of David Ben Gurion, executed in a variety of media (oil on board, graphite, charcoal, watercolor); 3 framed pieces. George Grosz: 2 sketchbooks, one with approximately 51 sketches, the other with 38 pages of drawings and sketches Maryann Blum: large oil portrait of George C. Marshall Weber, Max. Essays on Art. [New York] : [Printed by William Edwin Rudge], 1916. First Edition. Original illustrated wraps; pp. 77. Inscribed by the artist, "To Helaine with love eternal from Max." Yapp edges lightly wrinkled and chipped, otherwise fine. Einstein, Carl. Negerplastik. Munchen: Kurt Wolff Verlag, 1920. First Edition. Illustrated paper over boards, cloth backstrip, lettered in black; pp. xxvii (text), [3], 108 b/w plates. Boards a bit scuffed and scratched. With Max Weber's ownership signature on the FFEP and his handwritten notes and sketches in the margins. Also includes a laid-in sketch by Weber with his notes. A fascinating look at a sculptor's engagement with his medium, its variety and history, Weber comments on 35 of the sculptures shown here -- "how elemental!!!" he says of one, "more real and living expression than the style of Brancusi or even Modigliani" he remarks of another. He also sometimes echoes the images with a sketch of his own, or subjects them to careful scrutiny, as indicated by measurements or lines breaking the piece up into smaller parts. Most of his notes are in the wide margins, with a few penciled direct on the image.

With binder's ticket of Deschamps, Paris on front pastedown. 14 albumen and 3 salted paper prints (10-1/2 x 8 in.) mounted on album leaves, most of Clément-Just in costume, 5 cartes-de-visite and 3 cabinet cards of Clément-Just, all signed ("C. Just") and many captioned on the mount with title of play and date, with 3 original watercolor sketches and numerous prints. Oblong folio. Personal Scrapbook of French Stage Actor Clément-Just. The personal photo album and scrapbook of the celebrated 19th-century French stage actor Clément-Just, with striking vintage albumen and salted paper print photographs of the actor in costume, all signed by Clément-Just and many captioned with the name of the play and the theater where it was performed. Clément-Just specialized in historical costume dramas, plays with titles such as Mazarin, Henri II, La Prise de Pékin, La Chouanne, Jeanne D'Arc and Monte Cristo, and the photographs are noteworthy for their elaborate display of costume. Clément-Just is nearly unrecognizable from photograph to photograph as he undergoes extreme changes in costume, make-up and hair style. Laid-in to the album is a collection of contemporary French theater newspaper clippings concerning Clemént-Just's career, including an 1875 issue of Paris-Theatre which is adorned on its front page with a cliché print of the actor.
