        Three photographs (each approximately 160 x 120 mm or the reverse) of Anna Pavlova, all inscribed and signed in 1929 to Mimi Mattin

      - The photographs are mounted together, behind glass and recently reinserted in the original frame; apart from some silvering-out around the margins, the entire package (external dimensions 295 x 650 mm) is in excellent condition. All three portraits have '"Ross" Verlag' in the negative. Two of them are credited to 'd'Ora, Paris' (Dora Philippine Kallmus, 1881-1963); one is definitely 'Anna Pavlova, in costume for the solo "Christmas", before 1929' (from online sources), and the other is almost certainly from the same sitting. The third one carries the credit 'Portrait by Lafayette, London'; taken in August 1927, it depicts Pavlova with Jack the swan draped around her neck. The recipient, Mimi Mattin, was a 'Life Member of the Adelaide Repertory Theatre Society, Actor, Costume Designer, Director, Producer, Costume Co-ordinator, Costume Maker, Wardrobe Mistress, Coordinator' who is mentioned in 122 events in the AusStage database.

        Ensayo sobre la interpretación de la escritura hierática de la América Central

      Imprenta y Fundicion de Manuel Tello, Madrid 1881 - [8]+xxi+113+[5] pages with xx leaves of plates of which number XX folds out. Elephant folio (18" x 12") bound in quarter red leather with six raised band compartments lettered and decorated in gilt over marbled boards. Translated by Juan de Dios de la Rada and Delgado. First Spanish edition limited to 200 copies of which this is number 141. This Spanish-language translation of Rosny's essay on hieroglyphic writing is from the Codex Troano, which was named for a previous owner, Don Juan Tro and Ortolano, a professor of Spanish palaeography. In his prologue to this book, Juan Rada and Delgado endorses Rosny's assertion that the Maya codex purchased by a Madrid museum in 1875 and named Codex Cortesianus is truly part of the same book as the Codex Troano, which was discovered in Spain in the 1860s By Brasseur de Bourbourg. The two fragments were reunited in 1888, and the whole is now known as the Madrid Codex. The reconnected manuscript consists of fifty-six leaves, with writing on both sides. Its date has been disputed, with most scholars believing that it was executed late in the Post-Classic period but before the Spanish invasion. With the formation of the Societe Americaine de France established in 1857, primarily with the enthusiasm of Braseur de Borubourg and a small number of scholars and among them was Leon Louis Lucien Prunol de Rosny (1837-1914), a student and later professor in the School of Oriental Languages who did extensive research on the language and writing systems of the Far East. Rosny’s special concern was Japanese, but also studied, Chinese, Korean and the languages of Southeast Asia. His distinguished career included the important position of director of the Ecole des Hautes Estudes (Sorbonne). Equipped with a comparative background in languages and writing systems held by few other students of Maya writing, Rosny approached the problem of decipherment with considerable rigor. His background allowed him to recognize the mixed nature of the Maya system, in which he identified “figurative,” “idiographic” and “phonetic” signs. He also understood the problems in using Landa’s alphabet, but nonetheless asserted its basically syllabic nature. Only a handful of his original decipherments have stood the test of time, most conspicuously his clever elucidation of the Cortesianus (1883) and Persianus (1887) Codices. The story of the Paris Codex or Peresianus is evocative of Latin America’s image abroad. One day in Paris, Rosny ran across this manuscript while looking into a “basket of papers in a neglected part of the library. The twenty-two-page document, bearing the name “Perez” (a library staff member who worked on this codex in 1859), had disappeared before Jose Perez found it. Rosny published a colorful and historic study entitled Codex Peresianus, Manuscrit hieratique des anciens iondiens de l’Amerique centrale conserve a la Biblioteque Nationale de Paris. Scholars prefer to use the name Paris instead of Peresianusto avoid any confusion with a codex known as Codice Perez (The Book of Chilam Balam opf Mani). Condition: Corners badly bumped, spine bands rubbed, some rubbing to edges, plate XX partly detached some edge tears to end papers else a good copy, internally very clean.

        GRAUW, DE--- 'Genealogie van het geslacht De Grauw', [door A.A. Vorsterman van Oyen], manusript, 4°, 160 pag., gekalligrafeerd, gebonden in rood marokijnen band met goud opdruk.

      Fraai boek met getekende titelpagina door J.M. Lion, d.d. 1881. De gekalligrafeerde tekst is gepubliceerd in de jaargang 1886 van het 'Algemeen Nederlandsch Familieblad'. De tekst is echter in dit manuscript aangevuld in een andere hand (die van mr. Joan Muller, zoon van dr. H.C. Muller) met gegevens tot ca. 1950. Daarbij ook kritische opmerkingen over de tekst van Vorsterman van Oyen. Als deze bijvoorbeeld schrijft dat Pieter de Grauw (1825-1868) 'secretaris-administrateur was van H.K. Hoogheid Prinses Marianne' schrijft Muller in de marge 'Wat hiervan te denken? Lijkt me grandiose humbug, of had hij misschien als ondergeschikte een 'zekere' relatie tot deze zeer beruchte, wellustige dame??'. Diens zoon, ook een Pieter de Grauw (1860-1896) huwde volgens een aanvullende aantekening te Blitar (N.O.I.) in 1887 met Emilie Mathilde Douwes Dekker (1861-1919), dochter van Jan Douwes Dekker en M.L.A.E. Bousquet. Hun zoon Francois Pieter (1888-1953), ongehuwd en 'minderwaardig' was de laatste mannelijke naamdrager van 'onzen tak'. Zijn zuster Josephine H.D. de Grauw (1889-?) huwde in 1914 mr. Gerardus Cornelis Douwes Dekker (1876-1944), zoon van Engel D.D. en Theodora Chr. Heyning. Gertrude H.C. de Grauw (1860-1937), nicht van Francois Pieter en Josephine, huwde in 1885 met dr. H.C. Muller (1855-1927). Het familieboek kwam daardoor in bezit van afstammelingen van deze dr. Muller. Dr. H.C. Muller was bevriend met Multatuli.M11864

        Victorian Album of Original Mounted Zany Caricatures Done in Pen-and-Ink, Some Watercolors, with Numerous Miniatures

      1881. Full Morocco. Very Good. A fun house mirror into Victorian society, with over 300 clippings creating a collage of organized chaos on many of the pages. In our view, the arrangement of the imagery augments the irreverent spirit of the caricatures. 4to. 27.5 by 22 cm. Unpaginated, 73 pages of visual content, with all rectos used and some versos, with, by our count, a total of 309 separate mounted pieces with original artwork. Of these, 50 are colored. Not all the mounted illustrations are caricature, but the overwhelming majority are, and the cumulative effect of the album is an exuberant playfulness. The sheer number of caricatures crammed into these pages gives one the sense that a broad swath of Victorian society, bourgeois and noble, has come in for skewering. MPs, operagoers, jockeys, young and old lovers, musicians, minstrel performers, etc. etc. -- no one is spared. The miniatures, although not great in number, pack an outsized wallop, as well as speak the skill of the artist The artwork appears to us to have been done by a single person, a gifted amateur, about whom we know nothing with certainty. The strongest clue about him is a piece that states "School of Medicine Liverpool". Yet only a few of the clips near this appear to be poking fun at doctors and patients. The album is most definitely scrappy, but while this can be meant pejoratively, here the scrappiness of the album contributes to its charm, for the chock-a-block imagery on the page truly acts like a kaleidoscope -- hence, again, the fun house analogy above. Undoubtedly viewers will find similarities to Tenniel, du Maurier, Leech, and we can comfortably assume that "Punch" magazine was not unappreciated by this artist. The dating is based on one entry on the fourth page, "My diary 1881". We would assume that much of the artwork might have been done prior to this, later than this, or both, but the 1881 helps anchor the album, and we would add, much of the dress and styles exhibited in the album would reinforce this dating, loosely-speaking. To return to the question of the amount of color, there is some subjectivity in our categorization. We didn't include as colored pieces with what we thought, given the drawing, was a trivial amount of color. Also, we would note that the pieces were of widely varying size and shape, and there were some larger pieces that read as more than a single work of art, or were within themselves, a montage of sorts. As to the color quotient, when we do a page count assessment, we come up with 15 pages that read as color. Either way, the color quotient falls in the range of 16 to 20 percent, which is in line with our subjective impression leafing through the pages.

Original Hardcover, recently beautifully rebacked with gilt lettering on spine. Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. Few small library stamps (discarded). Also with a contribution by Darwin in the section "Letter to the editor" (Darwin responds to an article "Leaves injured at Night by free radiation" - James Clerk Maxwell FRS FRSE (13 June 1831 – 5 November 1879) was a Scottish scientist in the field of mathematical physics. His most notable achievement was to formulate the classical theory of electromagnetic radiation, bringing together for the first time electricity, magnetism, and light as manifestations of the same phenomenon. Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism have been called the "second great unification in physics" after the first one realised by Isaac Newton. With the publication of "A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" in 1865, Maxwell demonstrated that electric and magnetic fields travel through space as waves moving at the speed of light. Maxwell proposed that light is an undulation in the same medium that is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena. The unification of light and electrical phenomena led to the prediction of the existence of radio waves. Maxwell helped develop the Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution, a statistical means of describing aspects of the kinetic theory of gases. He is also known for presenting the first durable colour photograph in 1861 and for his foundational work on analysing the rigidity of rod-and-joint frameworks (trusses) like those in many bridges. His discoveries helped usher in the era of modern physics, laying the foundation for such fields as special relativity and quantum mechanics. Many physicists regard Maxwell as the 19th-century scientist having the greatest influence on 20th-century physics. His contributions to the science are considered by many to be of the same magnitude as those of Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. In the millennium poll – a survey of the 100 most prominent physicists – Maxwell was voted the third greatest physicist of all time, behind only Newton and Einstein. On the centenary of Maxwell's birthday, Einstein described Maxwell's work as the "most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton". (Wikipedia)

Schelle's Critique Concerning the Violins in the Exhibition of Vienna in the Leipsig "Neue Zeitschrift fur Musick, No. 52, 1873". Includes erratum slip tipped in at rear. "George Gemünder (1816-1899) was a German-born violin maker who worked in the United States. Gemünder was born at Ingelfingen, in the kingdom of Wurtemburg. With his brother August & others, he pioneered the construction of quality violins in the United States. He was a pupil of Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume in Paris, & moved to the United States in 1847, establishing himself in Boston. In 1851 his violins won a medal at the World's Fair in London. In 1852 he moved to Astoria, now part of New York City. Vuillaume, & other European makers violin makers often applied chemicals to their instruments to produce a pseudo-antique look & some believed a desirable tone quality. However, Gemünder felt that wood so treated would soon lose its resonance & render treated instruments worthless. Gemünder succeeded in making excellent violins without chemical treatments. His violins are highly regarded for their volume, power, balance, & overall tone, & have been favorable compared to the work of the best old masters. He was unusually successful in the model & finish of his instruments, & especially the varnish. He so faithfully reproduced the distinctive characteristics of old Italian violins that those made by him are not infrequently mistaken for genuine Cremonas. One called the 'Kaiser', finished in 1873 & sent to the Vienna exhibition, was pronounced an Italian violin of the classic period by judges who thought it impossible to produce so fine a tone from a new instrument. Gemünder also received medals from exhibitions held in Paris (1867), New York (1870), Vienna (1873), Philadelphia (1876 'hors concours'), Amsterdam (1883), Nice (1883-1884), London (1884), New Orleans (1884-1885 'hors concours'), & London (1885). He wrote a book called George Gemünder's Progress in Violin Making (Astoria, New York, 1881), to which he prefixed an autobiographical sketch."

        Ensayo sobre la interpretación de la escritura hierática de la América Central

      Madrid: Imprenta y Fundicion de Manuel Tello, 1881 [8]+xxi+113+[5] pages with figures, drawings (some in color) and xx leaves of plates of which number XX folds out. Elephant folio (18" x 12") bound in quarter red leather with six raised band compartments lettered and decorated in gilt over marbled boards. Translated by Juan de Dios de la Rada and Delgado. First Spanish edition limited to 200 copies of which this is number 141.This Spanish-language translation of Rosny's essay on hieroglyphic writing is from the Codex Troano, which was named for a previous owner, Don Juan Tro and Ortolano, a professor of Spanish palaeography. In his prologue to this book, Juan Rada and Delgado endorses Rosny's assertion that the Maya codex purchased by a Madrid museum in 1875 and named Codex Cortesianus is truly part of the same book as the Codex Troano, which was discovered in Spain in the 1860s By Brasseur de Bourbourg. The two fragments were reunited in 1888, and the whole is now known as the Madrid Codex. The reconnected manuscript consists of fifty-six leaves, with writing on both sides. Its date has been disputed, with most scholars believing that it was executed late in the Post-Classic period but before the Spanish invasion.With the formation of the Societe Americaine de France established in 1857, primarily with the enthusiasm of Braseur de Borubourg and a small number of scholars and among them was Leon Louis Lucien Prunol de Rosny (1837-1914), a student and later professor in the School of Oriental Languages who did extensive research on the language and writing systems of the Far East. Rosny's special concern was Japanese, but also studied, Chinese, Korean and the languages of Southeast Asia. His distinguished career included the important position of director of the Ecole des Hautes Estudes (Sorbonne). Equipped with a comparative background in languages and writing systems held by few other students of Maya writing, Rosny approached the problem of decipherment with considerable rigor. His background allowed him to recognize the mixed nature of the Maya system, in which he identified "figurative," "idiographic" and "phonetic" signs. He also understood the problems in using Landa's alphabet, but nonetheless asserted its basically syllabic nature. Only a handful of his original decipherments have stood the test of time, most conspicuously his clever elucidation of the Cortesianus (1883) and Persianus (1887) Codices. The story of the Paris Codex or Peresianus is evocative of Latin America's image abroad. One day in Paris, Rosny ran across this manuscript while looking into a "basket of papers in a neglected part of the library. The twenty-two-page document, bearing the name "Perez" (a library staff member who worked on this codex in 1859), had disappeared before Jose Perez found it. Rosny published a colorful and historic study entitled Codex Peresianus, Manuscrit hieratique des anciens iondiens de l'Amerique centrale conserve a la Biblioteque Nationale de Paris. Scholars prefer to use the name Paris instead of Peresianusto avoid any confusion with a codex known as Codice Perez (The Book of Chilam Balam opf Mani). Condition:Corners badly bumped, spine bands rubbed, some rubbing to edges, plate XX partly detached some edge tears to end papers else a good copy, internally very clean.

        INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT HARRISON. NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER . EXTRA. THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1841.

      [Washington. March 4, 1881]. - Broadside, 24 x 19 1/2 inches, printed in five columns. Matted, well suited for framing. Previously folded, with a couple of small separations along old fold lines. Slight marginal paper loss along top edge, not affecting text. Some dust soiling at edges and along folds. About very good. The very rare first printing of William Henry Harrison's inaugural address, the longest in United States history and what many believe caused his death after only thirty- two days in office, the shortest tenure of any American President. On a cold and wet March 4, 1841, newly-elected President William Henry Harrison famously delivered this address without coat or hat. Harrison took well over two hours to deliver his anti- Jackson, pro-Whig agenda, the longest speech ever for the occasion. In the days following the address and inaugural balls, Harrison caught a cold, which developed into pneumonia and pleurisy. He died on April 4, 1841, becoming not only the shortest-serving President, but also the first to die in office. We locate only five surviving examples of this broadside extra, with none at the Library of Congress.

        Victorian Album of Original Mounted Zany Caricatures Done in Pen-and-Ink, Some Watercolors, with Numerous Miniatures

      , 1881. 1881. Full Morocco. Very Good. A fun house mirror into Victorian society, with over 300 clippings creating a collage of organized chaos on many of the pages. In our view, the arrangement of the imagery augments the irreverent spirit of the caricatures. 4to. 27.5 by 22 cm.Unpaginated, 73 pages of visual content, with all rectos used and some versos, with, by our count, a total of 309 separate mounted pieces with original artwork. Of these, 50 are colored. Not all the mounted illustrations are caricature, but the overwhelming majority are, and the cumulative effect of the album is an exuberant playfulness. The sheer number of caricatures crammed into these pages gives one the sense that a broad swath of Victorian society, bourgeois and noble, has come in for skewering. MPs, operagoers, jockeys, young and old lovers, musicians, minstrel performers, etc. etc. -- no one is spared. The miniatures, although not great in number, pack an outsized wallop, as well as speak the skill of the artist The artwork appears to us to have been done by a single person, a gifted amateur, about whom we know nothing with certainty. The strongest clue about him is a piece that states "School of Medicine Liverpool". Yet only a few of the clips near this appear to be poking fun at doctors and patients. The album is most definitely scrappy, but while this can be meant pejoratively, here the scrappiness of the album contributes to its charm, for the chock-a-block imagery on the page truly acts like a kaleidoscope -- hence, again, the fun house analogy above. Undoubtedly viewers will find similarities to Tenniel, du Maurier, Leech, and we can comfortably assume that "Punch" magazine was not unappreciated by this artist. The dating is based on one entry on the fourth page, "My diary 1881".We would assume that much of the artwork might have been done prior to this, later than this, or both, but the 1881 helps anchor the album, and we would add, much of the dress and styles exhibited in the album would reinforce this dating, loosely-speaking.To return to the question of the amount of color, there is some subjectivity in our categorization. We didn't include as colored pieces with what we thought, given the drawing, was a trivial amount of color. Also, we would note that the pieces were of widely varying size and shape, and there were some larger pieces that read as more than a single work of art, or were within themselves, a montage of sorts. As to the color quotient, when we do a page count assessment, we come up with 15 pages that read as color. Either way, the color quotient falls in the range of 16 to 20 percent, which is in line with our subjective impression leafing through the pages.
