        Fine Motif Samples for Silverware of Aesthetic Period Bird and Flora Designs

      Birmingham, circa 1882-1890. The private working volume of a prolific and most talented Birmingham silversmith, containing over 260 silver engraved rubbings on paper, of designs to be etched onto jewellery, silver tableware, etc., approximately 17 pictorial engravings from a book, 12 pencil drawings, and one illustrated magazine print advertisement for Fattorini and Sons of Bradford in West Yorkshire retained for design reference. Each rubbing is made on its own paper clipping, and mounted to 25 leafs of an 1880 annual diary made by White & Pike, a lithography and book making firm in Birmingham. Rubbings vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 2 x 2 cm, and the largest 7 x 11 cm. Rubbings mounted to the first four leafs are made in purple wax, while the majority are made in charcoal. Also containing a few manuscript annotations of specific client purchases, some of whom were jewellers and manufacturers of silverworks, also in Birmingham. Together with 4 photocopy leafs, loosely placed within the volume, outlining the particulars of a patent granted in 1930 to Tiptaft Limited of Birmingham for the production of decorative plaques, possibly suggesting the firm's connection to the volume. Folio. White & Pike's diary, featuring numerous advertisements of contemporary firms in the precious metals trades, and other businesses. Volume measures approximately 21 x 33 cm, green cloth boards titled in gilt to front. A generous example of Victorian silver etching works. During the Aesthetic Period (1880-1901), when beauty and freedom of spirit prevailed over social-political themes, in literature, fine art, music, and other art forms, a sense of fun and insouciance returned to jewellery and table wares. Sterling silver pieces made in Birmingham became quite popular at this time. Engraved motifs such as those presented here were used to decorate vases, tea caddies and sugar bowls, serving platters, candlesticks, bangle bracelets, lockets, brooches, watch fobs, jewellery boxes, fine furniture embellishments, and so much more. A rare survivor from a silversmith's shop in Birmingham, historic Warwickshire, now known as the West Midlands, the present volume has survived in excellent form, and now serves to memorialize Victorian era styles of ornamentation for precious metals, in particular the English attraction to the fabled bird. The volume, a White & Pike's Diary for the year 1880, was first used in 1880 to record the silversmith's sales and services rendered to his Birmingham clients, as manuscript entries are made on specific dates throughout the volume. Clients include private names such as one Mr. Abbott who may have been a manufacturer of musical instruments as he also purchased silver by weight "for snaps, mouthpieces, and plates". Other repeat private clients appearing in the accounts include Walton and Dewson. The silversmith frequently served other professionals and firms from various trades working with metals and jewellery, for example: •Phillips & Pearce - listed in Harrod's Special Directory (1880 First Edition) as dye sinkers, tool makers, stampers and piercers with a shop at 131 Barr Street in Birmingham •Mr. Phillips himself, who purchased silver to stamp into beads •Tool makers Cashmore & Morton who purchased red gold in one instance •Clock and watch makers Grimmett & Finning / Grimmet & Co., and co-owner Mr. Grimmett •Peers & Co. - The 1880 Kelly's Directory of the Watch & Clock Trades lists Peers Edgar & Co. as a manufacturer of best gold-cased chains and jewellery, situated at 264 Icknield Street, in Birmingham •Mr. Sanders who purchased silver to saw-pierce into names •Hickman who brought in 39 earrings and 19 brooches to renew •Clutterbuck who bought 42 blanks to stamp in dies sent Based on the sales entries, some of the items manufactured and sold to retail clients included women's brooches, bracelets, locket dies, and earrings, whereas to other men in the trade and manufacturing of silver artifacts, he sold beads, blank silver pieces for stamping, and silver to turn into coils. The volume was subsequently re-purposed as a private catalog, to retain sample engraved rubbings on paper clippings, which have been pasted over the earlier accounts records. Owing to the private financial notes throughout the volume, this was most likely the silversmith's private working volume, kept in the shop. A more aesthetically pleasing catalog of designs would have surely been presented to his clients. Also intended for personal reference only, a large printed advertisement leaf for Fattorini and Sons of Bradford in West Yorkshire was retained, and annotated in pencil "keep this" - evidently for design reference. Interestingly, the advertisement illustrates designs for cigarette case, one of which is similar to a rubbing found on the previous leaf with the same shaped shield at its center. Oblongs, cameos and roundels, the silver plate etched motifs are rather intricate and refined, the work of a skilled and passionate silversmith. Many of the designs feature birds, a scant few of these having a Far East influence with delicate fans incorporated in the composition, and some resonating with the local appreciation for the birds of England. Flora and leaf patterns are also abundant, and combinations of birds in gorgeous botanical flourishes. [Bird motifs were especially popular in the 1890s and into the turn of the century. Victorians were deeply inspired by nature, and they especially loved birds, which represented hope, freedom, and rebirth. Swallows were typically the first bird to land on a ship when nearing land, and thus came to represent a safe return.] A few designs standout as rather unique and must have been special orders, including one which highlights the Albert memorial clock erected in Belfast in 1869, a round cut scene hand drawn of horse drawn closed carriage complete with a bugler, and a small roundel of a sail boat. One of the cigarette case designs features sand dollars, also fitting for a period during which seaweed collecting and seaside retreats were popular. The 17 copper engraved leafs also suggest that the silversmith produced copper engraved plates for book printers, or at least made the engraved plates for one book which illustrated several birds. Finally, one loose leaf placed in the volume carries rubbings of monogram initials. This may be the working volume of James Walter Tiptaft who founded "J.W. Tiptaft & Son" in 1882. Tiptaft of Birmingham operated from 1882 until 1940, the founder and his son being advertised as ironmongers, jewellers and medallists, over the years. On 14 January 1880, the first manuscript entry was made in the present volume. James Walter Tiptaft was by this time already active in Birmingham. In 1881 he was known to have 2 employees working for him, and may very well have begun compiling this volume for easy reference. James Walter Tiptaft was born in January 1848 in Welford, Northamptonshire, and died sometime after 1900. According to the census of Birmingham, by 1871 he was employed as an "ironmonger's assistant" and residing with his brother Edward at No. 6 Louisa Street. He married Elizabeth Smith in July 1872 in Dudley, Worcester. By 1878, and possibly earlier, the couple had moved to Birmingham. At 33 years old James W. Tiptaft appears in the 1881 census of Birmingham, Warwickshire, his trade being "ironmonger employing 2 men," residing at 12 Spring Hill with his wife Elizabeth, together with his parents William Kea Tiptaft and Ann James (née Atkin) Tiptaft (1821-1892), and also his brother Robert Tiptaft. In 1882, he founded "J.W. Tiptaft & Son." The 1901 census of Birmingham shows James W. Tiptaft living at 129 City Road, with his wife Elizabeth, son William, and nephew Percy N. Burton who is described as 20 years old, ironmonger, worker, born at Birmingham. James Walter Tiptaft's father was William Keal Tiptaft (1824-1893), born in Houghton, Leicestershire, and died in Birmingham, Warwickshire. He was a classical and commercial teacher, later a schoolmaster until at least age 47. In an uncommon turn of events, it seems that in his later working years, he joined his son James in ironmongery. Having moved from Leicestershire, the 1881 census of Birmingham lists him as an "ironmonger's assistant." James and Elizabeth had at least one child, William J. Tiptaft who was born circa 1884 in Birmingham. At age 17, he was also a ironmonger, having learned the trade from his father. He too married a woman named Elizabeth. They had a son they named William. Online sources state that James Walter Tiptaft went into partnership with his son Norman in 1909, however contemporary directories, trade mark registries, and genealogies available online only produce the record of one son, William Tiptaft. Further research is warranted. The mark registered with the Birmingham Assay Office in 1886, 1892, 1906, 1923, and in 1934, for J.W. Tiptaft himself was "J·W·T" whereas in October 1914 for J.W. Tiptaft & Son Ltd. the mark registered was simply "JWT" with no dots or periods. James Walter Tiptaft also entered his mark with the Chester Assay Office from the address of 25 Northampton Street, Birmingham, on the 30th April 1904. His private address at the time of the Chester registration was 22 Whately Road, Handsworth, Staffs. In 1940, Tiptaft Limited was still listed in Kelly's Directory, and also the London Post Office Directory, as a medallist ("Medals and badges in gold, silver and bronze for sports, societies and clubs; Contractors to H.M. Government"), the London address being 22 Hatton Garden. Later the same year the firm was sold to and incorporated with S. Blanckensee and Son Ltd.. S Blanckensee & Sons Ltd. was founded in Bristol in 1826. In September 1863 the firm moved to Birmingham where it established its first registered mark, and established a shop on Great Charles Street. Solomon (Abraham) and his son Aaron, traded as Blanckensee & Son, Jewellers. In the 1931 Kelly's Trade Directory the firm is listed as makers of regimental, naval, and R.A.F. badges, crests and brooches, In 1941, as medalists.

        Autograph Manuscript, signed ("Rose Hartwick Thorpe"), two stanzas from "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight"

      Grand Rapids, Mich, 1882. 24 lines, fair copy, in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 8vo. Accompanied by a 2 pp. ALS from Thorpe, conveying the ms in response to the recipient's request. Both in fine condition. 24 lines, fair copy, in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 8vo. "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight". Two stanzas from the immensely popular popular song, in its day, about a young girl during the Protectorate who saves the life of her Cavalier lover from a sentence of death" She has reached the topmost ladder, o'er her hangs the great dark bell; Awful is the gloom beneath her, like the pathway down to hell. See! the ponderous tongue is swinging; 'tis the hour of curfew now, And the sight has chilled her bosom, stopped her breath, and paled her brow. Shall she let it ring? No, never! Her eyes flash with sudden light, As she springs, and grasps it firmly: "Curfew shall not ring to-night!" Out she swung,-- far out. The city Seemed a speck of light below,-- There twixt heaven and earth suspended, As the bell swung to and fro. And the sexton at the bell-rope, old and deaf, heard not the bell, Sadly thought that twilight curfew rang young Basil's funeral knell. "Still the maiden, clinging firmly, quivering lip and fair face white, Stilled her frightened heart's wild throbbing: "Curfew shall not ring tonight!"

        A fine photogravure portrait of Florence Eleanor Booth (1861-1957), wife of Bramwell Booth, Second General of The Salvation Army

      The high-quality sepia-toned photogravure is printed on stiff card (external dimensions 217 x 255 mm, image size 139 x 190 mm). The wide margin beneath the image is inscribed and signed in ink: 'Yours, affectionately Florence E. Booth. The grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Gal[atians] VI 18'. Apart from light creases to two corner tips, the item is in fine condition. Florence Eleanor Soper became a Salvation Army convert in her late teens; in October 1882, 'shortly after her twenty-first birthday, Captain Florence Soper married Chief of the Staff Commissioner Bramwell Booth' (official Salvation Army website). They were married for forty-seven years and had seven children. Shortly before her first child turned one, Florence became involved in the Women's Social Work aspect of The Salvation Army, 'and by the time she relinquished leadership of the WSW in 1912, this spare time ministry of a single rescue home had expanded to more than forty social work centres, of varying types, spread across' England. On the death of his father, Salvation Army founder and General William Booth, in August 1912, Bramwell Booth succeeded him as the Second General, and 'as Mrs General Booth, Florence had to move on to other duties'. This charming portrait appears to date from about this time.

Im breiten Rand mit einigen wenigen Fleckchen, leicht knitterfaltig. Der Maler, Bildhauer und Radierer Max Klinger wird am 18.2.1857 in Leipzig geboren. Er studiert in bei Karl Gussow in Karlsruhe und an der Berliner Akademie. 1879 ist er im Atelier von Emile Wauters in Brüssel tätig.

Beim neu gegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund ist Max Klinger Vizepräsident neben Max Liebermann, Fritz von Uhde und Harry Graf Kessler. 1906 wird er Vorsitzender des neuen Villa-Romana-Vereins für das Atelierhaus in Florenz. Ein Grundcharakteristikum der Kunst von Max Klinger ist der Symbolismus mit antik-mythologischen und christlichen Bezügen und Inhalten. Zu seinen malerischen Hauptwerken zählen "Kreuzigung" (1890), "Christus im Olymp" (1897), "Die griechische Geisteswelt" (1909 für Leipzig als Aulagemälde der Universität, zerstört). In seinem bildhauerischen Werk orientiert sich Klinger an der neu entdeckten griechischen Polychromie und er verwendet farbige Steine, so bei "Die neue Salome" (1893) und "Kassandra" (1886-1895). Als sein Hauptwerk gilt hier die monumentale Statue des sitzenden "Beethoven" (1886-1902, Leipzig, Neues Gewandhaus). Den bedeutsamsten Teil des künstlerischen Werks von Max Klinger stellt sein grafisches Werk dar. Es zählt zu den besten Leistungen der deutschen Grafik der Neuzeit, sowohl was das Technische, Künstlerische und Narrative angeht. Max Klinger setzt die Technik der Radierung und der Aquatinta in jeder Hinsicht meisterhaft ein und entwickelt sie weiter. Es entsteht ein umfangreiches Werk von Radierfolgen. Max Klinger stirbt am 4.7.1920 in Großjena bei Naumburg.

        Essai sur L'histoire Naturelle des Vertebres de la Province et des Departements Circonvoisins: Vertebres Anallantantoidiens (Poissons et Batraciens)

      Marseillie: Marius Lebon, . First edition. 1882 - Pp. (7), 8-425 (3, index); 44 text-figures (line-drawings and halftones of fishes and frogs). Publisher's original reddish cloth over marbled boards, the spine is lettered in gilt and with blind-stamped panel lines, original marbled endpapers, sm 4to (10 x 6.5 inches; 255 x 170 mm). This work provides a natural history of the fishes and amphibians inhabiting the southern provinces of France. Jean Marius Francois Reguis (1850-1908) studied pharmacy at the School of Medicine in Marseille where he studied under Charles Lespes, Antoine-Fortune Marion, Alphonse Derbs, and Edouard Marie Heckel. After finishing his education, he moved to Meyrargues in southwest France to begin his studies on the batrachians, reptiles, birds, mammals, anthropology, invertebrates, botany, and geology of the area. He later joined the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille when he began writing a 16 volume encyclopedia on the natural history of southern France. Between 1876 and 1904 he published numerous monographs and journal articles on these topics, but they were never formally organized into his encyclopedia. This book appears to be one of the volumes in Regius' proposed encyclopedia. This volume has long tables of the species Regius described in the volume. Due to the extreme scarcity of the work, this volume was likely published in an edition of 500 copies or less. All of his published works are very hard to find. Regius died in 1908 after a lifetime of studying zoology, mycology, and botany of southern France. This volume is warmly inscribed by the author to F. Letarte of Paris, dated July 30, 1882. Later from the library of ichthyologist J. Bohlke with his small name stamp at the bottom of the title page and the dedication page. A rare regional work that seldom comes up for sale. The spine is sunned which has caused the leather to turn into golden tan, the title is fully readable on the spine, the text is clean and unused with some pages uncut and unopened; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.

The story was cut from ten scenes to five, each placed on 3?x5? paper cards.

        Africana; Or, the Heart of Heathen Africa. Native Customs and Beliefs. [Volume 2: Mission Life.]

      London: Simpkin Marshall & Co., 1882 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original diagonal-ribbed dark yellow cloth over bevelled boards, spines and front boards lettered and decorated in gilt and black, rear boards ruled in blind, brown floral endpapers, binder's ticket (Jackson's Works, Aberdeen) to rear pastedowns. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Spines a touch sunned and bumped, tips lightly rubbed, small section of darkening to cloth at upper outer corner of vol. 1 front board, a small portion of cockling below, faint scuffing and a light score-mark to vol. 2 rear board, a few other trivial marks, these flaws minor: an excellent, fresh copy. Wood-engraved frontispiece, 8 similar plates, illustrations to the text. First edition of this important account of Malawi, from the celebrated travel collection of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the half-titles. Macdonald (1850-1929) arrived in the Shire Highlands in July 1878 as the first ordained minister of the newly-established Church of Scotland mission at Blantyre. During his tenure the mission assumed control of what Macdonald himself referred to as "civil jurisdiction", and became implicated in numerous abuses, including routine corporal punishment of any locals suspected of stealing mission property, leading to death in one instance and the flogging of an entirely innocent individual in another, and the large-scale expropriation of land "partly to forestall Portuguese claims to the sovereignty of the Shire Highlands" (Morris, An Environmental History of Southern Malawi, p. 53). Macdonald and others were recalled by the Foreign Mission Committee in 1881, and he spent the rest of his life as a parish minister. Despite the circumstances of his tenure, considered disreputable even by the standards of the day, his account is considered a "pioneer ethnographic study of the Yao" (ibid.) in a remarkably sympathetic vein.

The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find.

        Carte autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka. Désirs laconiques : "si vous saviez ce que je demande au ciel"

      - [Paris] (circa 1882), 11,5x9cm, un carton et son enveloppe. - carta di autografo prezioso firmato il Bristol la figura dell'autore e la direzione per la sua casa 83 rue Dulong, destinatari della famosa contessa Potocka, dove è stato uno dei più forti "Macahabés" o "amore morto" . Ben al di là del gioco d'amore della letteratura popolare in mostra contessa popolare, Maupassant sentiva una vera passione per questa musa che ha ispirato diversi personaggi le cui Christiane Andermatt a Mont-Oriol, e la baronessa Fremines nel nostro cuore. Queste piccole schede grigie iniziale Maupassant utilizzato per lo scrittore di messaggistica istantanea di solito quasi distrutte dopo la lettura. A volte, tuttavia, trasformando un appuntamento, una preghiera casta scivola al dedicatario dichiarazione licenziosa e quindi mantiene questa lettera d'amore improvvisato. "Resta inteso, signora, ma che ora? Undici un'ora a mezzogiorno? Io prego per voi mattina e sera. Se tu sapessi quello che chiedo il cielo? Mi scusi, signora, bacio le mani. Maupassant. " Françoise Mobihan descrive splendidamente l'appartamento di 83 Dulong strada Maupassant vissuto 1881-1884 e in cui ha vissuto il suo primo successo sociale: "Tre pezzi cucina, affitto di 450 franchi. Stanco di trambusto della Rue Clauzel e l'area Breda, Maupassant inizia in silenzio, con la Batignolles, la sua graduale migrazione verso ovest di Parigi e dintorni della classe media. L'indirizzo è nuova ma familiare a terra: Gustave, il padre si trasferì due mesi prima cinquecento metri di distanza, a 72, boulevard des Batignolles, di fronte al collegio Chaptal al quarto piano di 83 rue Dulong, in un piccolo edificio. pietra, le sue tre camere silenziose e luminose, la strada e cortile, consentendo Guy a scrivere a un ritmo sostenuto le sue colonne e le notizie - la Maison Tellier, Mademoiselle Fifi ... - un primo romanzo - una vita - e organizzare per i suoi amici, colleghi e conquiste, sposati o no, spesso intrattenimento serale frenetica Nay, come quella che ha portato al suo essere girato nella mano e curato dal suo portiere scrittore alla moda, molto occupato - .. si alza 'a dieci- sette inviti al giorno - Guy prima di assumere un cuoco, e in novembre 1883 un valletto, François Tassart, 27 anni, che lo accompagnerà nei suoi viaggi, e sarà dedicata ai tragici giorni della casa Dr bianco. pile di libri e Overgrown "ingombra di cianfrusaglie come un piccolo boudoir amante" 5 - secondo amico Maizeroy - questo appartamento sarà una sfida permanente per la sua esperienza. 5 Gil Blas, 3 luglio 1882. Citato da Marlo Johnston, Guy de Maupassant, Fayard, 2012, p. 414. 3 Nella parte inferiore dell'edificio, all'incrocio Cardinet, con treni sfrecciano della stazione Saint-Lazare alla Senna e la Normandia. Dalla sua finestra, il ragazzo sembra probabile. Esattamente come volontà Georges Duroy in Bel Ami (1885), la parte superiore della sua piccola stanza di Rue Boursault, dall'altra parte dei binari ". - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Précieuse carte autographe signée sur un bristol au chiffre de l'auteur et à l'entête de son domicile du 83 rue Dulong, adressée à la célèbre Comtesse Potocka, dont il fut un des plus fervents "Macchabées" ou "morts d'amour". Bien au delà du jeu d'amour littéraire en vogue dans le Salon très prisé de la Comtesse , Maupassant éprouvait une véritable passion pour cette muse qui lui inspira plusieurs personnages dont Christiane Andermatt dans Mont-Oriol, et la baronne de Frémines dans Notre Coeur. Ces petites cartes grises aux initiales de Maupassant servaient à l'écrivain de messagerie presque instantannée généralement détruites après lecture. Parfois cependant, au détour d'un rendez-vous, une chaste prière glisse vers la licencieuse déclaration et la dédicataire conserve alors ce billet doux improvisé. "C'est entendu, Madame, mais à quelle heure ? Onze heure ou midi ? Je prie pour vous matin et soir. Si vous saviez ce que je demande au ciel ? Permettez, madame, que je baise vos mains. Maupassant." Françoise Mobihan décrit admirablement l'appartement du 83 rue Dulong où Maupassant vécut de 1881 à 1884 et dans lequel il connaitra ses premiers succès mondains : " Trois pièces cuisine, loyer de 450 francs. Fatigué de l'agitation de la rue Clauzel et du quartier Bréda, Maupassant amorce discrètement, avec les Batignolles, sa migration progressive vers l'ouest de Paris et ses quartiers bourgeois. L'adresse est nouvelle mais le terrain connu : Gustave, son père, a emménagé deux mois plus tôt à cinq cents mètres de là, au 72, bd des Batignolles, en face du collège Chaptal. Au quatrième étage du 83 rue Dulong, dans un petit immeuble en pierre de taille, son trois pièces calme et lumineux, sur rue et cour, permet à Guy d'écrire à un rythme soutenu ses chroniques et nouvelles - La Maison Tellier, Mademoiselle Fifi... - un premier roman - Une vie - et d'organiser pour ses amis, confrères et conquêtes, mariées ou non, des soirées souvent animées. Voire mouvementées, comme celle qui lui valut d'être blessé par balle à la main et soigné par sa concierge. Écrivain en vogue, très sollicité - il reçoit jusqu'à dix-sept invitations par jour - Guy embauche d'abord une cuisinière, puis, en novembre 1883, un valet de chambre, François Tassart, 27 ans, qui l'accompagnera dans tous ses voyages et lui sera dévoué jusqu'aux jours tragiques de la maison du docteur Blanche. Envahi de piles de livres et « encombré de bibelots comme un boudoir de petite maîtresse » 5 - selon l'ami Maizeroy -, cet appartement sera un défi permanent à son savoir-faire. 5 Gil Blas, 3 juillet 1882. Cité par Marlo Johnston, Guy de Maupassant, Fayard, 2012, p. 414. 3 En bas de l'immeuble, au carrefour Cardinet, passent les trains qui filent de la gare Saint-Lazare vers les bords de Seine et la Normandie. De sa fenêtre, Guy les regarde sans doute. Exactement comme le fera Georges Duroy, dans Bel Ami (1885), du haut de sa petite chambre de la rue Boursault, de l'autre côté de la voie ferrée."
