        The Grand Canon at the Foot of Toroweap Looking East

      - A wonderfully detailed chromolithographic view by William Holmes and Thomas Moran from Clarence Edward Dutton’s sweeping series "Tertiary History of the Grand Cañon District" published by Julius Bien in Washington in 1882. This print measures 20” x 33”. These magnificent, large-scale panoramic views were included in Clarence Edward Dutton’s "Tertiary History of the Grand Cañon District", a publication that has elicited superlatives from every critic, and is certainly worthy of Francis Farquhar's description of it as "one of the greatest if not the greatest of all Grand Canyon books." Originally published in 1882, Dutton’s definitive work was commissioned as a study of the region’s geology and issued by the fledgling U.S. Geological Survey. Today it is admired as much for its stunning views, contributed by noted artists Thomas Moran and William Holmes, as for its scientific merit. Most of the views were the work of Holmes, an artist-cum-geologist who managed to transmute the rocky strata of the site into golden panoramas that continue to startle viewers as no other canyon art ever has. Although photography had been developed forty years before, and many photographers like Timothy O’Sullivan had already been to the Grand Canyon to take pictures, Holmes’s precision in drawing was able to do what the photo technology of the time could not -- cut through the haze and glare to reveal the canyon in perfect focus, with all of its strata together giving a glimpse of its history more revealing than any picture. Holmes’s imagery expressed visually Dutton’s notion that the Grand Canyon was “a great innovation in modern ideas of scenery, and in our conceptions of the grandeur, beauty, and power of nature.” Overall this print is in very good condition with some light foxing/staining and a few very small tears along edges.

        The Temples and Towers of the Virgen [Grand Cañon District Atlas Sheet IV]

      Julius Bien & Co, [New York] 1882 - A fine image from "one of the grandest publications of the scientific explorations in the American West", by arguably one of the greatest American topographical artists who recorded this important era of westward expansion This magnificent image is from the atlas volume of the official government report of the first great geological survey of the Grand Canyon. The team assembled to carry out the survey included some outstanding talents: Clarence E.Dutton, the scientist; Jack Hilliers, the photographer, and William Henry Holmes and Thomas Moran as artist-topographers. Holmes had already taken part in the Hayden survey of 1872-1877, and after serving with the Geological survey from 1880-1884, he turned to Ethnology and Anthropology, becoming chief of the Bureau of American Ethnology in 1902. From 1930 to 1932 he was director of the National Gallery of Art. The intention of the survey of the Grand Canyon was strictly scientific, but as Dutton writes in his preface, "I have in many places departed from the severe ascetic style which has become conventional in scientific monographs." This is also true of Moran and Holmes: both were clearly inspired by their subjects. As Wallace Stegner wrote in his introduction to the 1977 reprint of the whole work "Later specialization has eliminated from scientific publications most of the elements that make The Tertiary History so charming. No report written as this one is written would now be published by any government bureau. No illustrators like Moran and Holmes would be permitted to illustrate it. A great book. The Tertiary History has kept its value precisely because it does not specialize". Cf. Francis P.Farquhar. The Books of the Colorado River & the Grand Canyon (Los Angeles: 1953) 73; cf. W.B.Reese & G.A.Miles Depicting America (New Haven: 1992) 40. Tinted lithograph by Julius Bien & Co. (Small tears to original fold and a repaired tear in the left margin).

        General Robert C. Richardson, Jr.'s 4-Star General Flag!

      n.p., n.d. Flag, 51? x 38?. Two sided, gold-fringed flag of red with four white stars embroidered on each side. Fine condition. Gen. Robert C. Richardson, Jr. (1882-1954) commanded the U.S. Army, Pacific (Hawaiian Department) during the height of World War II in 1943 until his retirement in 1946. During that time he was also named Military Governor of Hawaii and Commanding General of U.S. Army Forces in the Pacific Ocean Areas. During his Hawaiian command, Gen. Richardson oversaw the construction in Fort Shafter on Oahu of what is now called Richardson Hall in a remarkably short time of 49 days. Known as the "Pineapple Pentagon" during the war, it has remained the planning and operational support centers for soldiers of the U.S. Army, Pacific, since 1944. In 1944, Richardson went to Saipan to review Army troops and present awards. He did this without first consulting with Gen. Holland Smith, USMC, who had operational control there, and who became angry with Richardson. Ric

Born in Manchester and educated in Cheshire, in 1811 he purchased an estate near Chorlton,and the first edition of his great work was published in 1819. Although he left papers for a revised edition, access was not allowed to them by his family, so Thomas Helsby had to produce his revised edition independently. This is a VERY HEAVY set.

        Handwritten Unpublished Poem with an original cabinet photograph

      Denver, CO 1882 - American writer best known for his children's poetry and humorous essays. Exceptional unpublished signed poem, titled "My Thirty Second Birthday," 1 page, 8.5 x 4.75 inches, four stanzas. Written on the back of a restaurant check made out to Fields for $3.00 at the Hotel Brunswick in Denver, Colorado, on August 31, 1882. This humorous poem was created on the spot for his friend Corporal Raymond, who accompanied Field to the restaurant in celebration of his 32nd birthday -- and then picked up the check for $3.00, in small part, consisting of the 2nd and 4th verses: "The gallant Corporal Raymond said 'Who dares to send an order here?' Yet by the living and the dead - And by the hairs of this proud head, if it be Field - there's difference there! So Corporal Raymond paid the bill - Three dollars! Blush O muse, to say - Three dollars for the juice of still - And meats he took to make his fill - So fritter man their gold away!" Accompanied by an original cabinet photograph taken on that memorable day by Charles Bohm, depicting Eugene Field, Corporal Raymond, and two unidentified people posed in a studio setting, possibly unique. The poem has three horizontal folds, several small smudges, and a light strip of uneven toning on the right edge. Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Leipzig 3rd September 1882 - 4pp manuscript letter in German dated Leipzig 3rd September 1882. ENGLISH TRANSLATION. "Leipzig, September 3, 1882 Dear Mr. Tuckett: This morning I received your valuable communication for 'Greece'. I am thanking you for this in the most heartfelt manner, as well as for the proposed additional help in the new project. I give you the assurance that I will take the same care of it as I did with the two volumes Palestine & Syria and Lower Egypt, so that all the support I get in that matter will result in my thanks and goodwill. From the two mentioned volumes you will have realised how much I am aiming at giving this Oriental enterprise a solid and scientific foundation for which I want to raise interest among eminent specialists, in order to gather the best possible material. Besides that, two of my colleagues and me, naturally each on his own, will travel in that country in order to be able to give in the book, if possible, firsthand information about each place gathered on location. When the manuscript has thus been finished I will have it typeset and send proofs to all the gentlemen who helped, asking them to revise the text again and meticulously. Please excuse me for having informed you about the production of these volumes in such detail. I felt the need to give - specially to you - a rough idea about that. I don't know yet whether I will come to Euboea myself; nevertheless, with your permission and referring to you I will try to get interest in the handbook as well from your friend Capt. Mansell in Chalkis. [in English:] Ever yours sincerely Karl Baedeker. Today at lunchtime I received a letter from Sparta written by a colleague who has been travelling since last autumn; I will have a passage from it copied. The accident, survived just by chance, is not without interest." This letter written by Karl Baedeker gives an interesting insight to the workings of the Baedeker company and the detailed attention they devoted to their guide-books. This letter was written a year before the first Baedeker on Greece was published in 1883. The last part of his Oriental enterprise.

      [Bermuda. ca. 1882]. - Sixteen leaves, containing thirty-one mounted photographs, each approximately 7 x 9 inches. Oblong folio. Contemporary black cloth, neatly rebacked and recornered with contemporary black morocco, gilt. Light wear and soiling to cards. Images generally crisp and clean. Very good plus. A handsome 19th-century photo album which includes the work of one of the great photographers of Bermuda. Three of the images have been definitely attributed to N.E. Lusher - the first, showing the construction of a gangway to a docked vessel at St. Georges; the eighth image, showing a shaded crossroads; and the charming ninth image of a black woman and a young boy seated in a donkey cart. The remainder of the album includes a number of images of Bermuda subjects which are of a similarly high quality which suggest that they are all the work of Lusher. Lusher apparently worked as a professional photographer from 1882 onwards, and is known for a wide range of work. His success more or less tied in with the explosion of tourism to the island that followed the first visit of Princess Louise to Bermuda in 1883. The images in the present album offer a good selection of the best of his work. They range from the reportage of the dock scenes, to the topographical images of the lighthouse and other island locations, to the true art of landscape photography, to the whimsy of images which feature the local inhabitants. Eighteen of the photographs have been identified as images of Bermuda, while the remainder show unidentified American coastal towns, possibly Nova Scotia, including an image of a coastal fortification, possibly in Halifax. The Bermuda images include a view of the docks at St. George's; a view of the town of St. George's; a stone quarry; royal palms on the road to Paget; a donkey cart; Gibb's Hill Lighthouse; a field of Easter lilies; and stalactites, possibly in the Crystal Cave.

        Catalogue of the Collection of Pictures, works of art, and decorative objects, the property of His Grace the Duke of Hamilton, K.T. Saturday, June 17, and Monday, June 19, 1882, and the following day [Five Portions complete].

      Christie, Manson & Woods, London 1882 - 234 pp. + plates. 8vo. Cloth. Hardback. Illus. with 77 monochrome carbon print photographic plates. Two versions of this catalogue were produced, one without plates, and this, the illustrated version, with carbon prints by James Craig Annan (1864-1946), son of the Scottish photographer Thomas Annan. Annan was only 18 when he produced this series of prints (uncredited) for the spectacular Duke of Hamilton sale. There were 2213 lots auctioned over fifteen days in five sections which brought in 397,000 British pounds! In addition to the paintings offered, which could have easily formed their own museum -works by Botticelli, Breugel, Da Vinci, Durer, Fra Angelico, Giorgione, Holbein, Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyke, Veronese, and more- there was French furniture, Asian bronzes and lacquers, Sevres and Desden porcelain, and decorative objects in profusion. Photographs were somewhat new to illustrating auctions and "this is an early use of photography for a sale catalogue," according to William Buchanan in his "J. Craig Annan. Selected Texts and Bibliography," (Oxford. 1994), p. 137. Annan would go on to become an important British pictorial photographer and one of its master photogravure printers, contributing both his own work and gravures for other British photographers to Stiglitz' Camera Work (the January 1914 issue -no. 45- was devoted entirely to him). Scarce, especially in such beautiful condition and in such a fine binding. Buchanan 1. A near fine copy, rubbing on verso of plates, plates numbered in pencil.
