        Porträt Herr Mayerhofer, Brustbild im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts.

      - Kohle, teils gewischt, auf bräunlichem Velin, aufgezogen, rechts unten monogrammiert, bezeichnet und datiert „W.P. fec München 1885 / München Wilhelmine Pfauser fec. 1885", verso auf einem montierten Papier bezeichnet „Dies hier ist Herr Mayerhofer zu München / ein aus gezeichnetes Modell der Akademie. – Wilhelmine Pfauser fec. / München 1885 / G. Mayerhofer legte seine Hand nach der Sitzung auf den Scheitel und Stirne der Zeichnerin und sagte „Sie sind eine Künstlerin! So sehe ich aus" – !". 45,4:32,9 cm. In den Ecken etwas unfrisch und mit Nagellöchlein. Hervorragend realistisch und lebendig erfaßtes Bildnis eines älteren Mannes, eine Akademieübung, das auf eine nicht unbeträchtliche Begabung der Zeichnerin hinweist. Da über die Urheberin des Blattes weiter nichts bekannt ist, ist anzunehmen, daß sie nach dem Besuch der Akademie nicht weiter künstlerisch tätig war.

        Ananga-ranga; (Stage of the bodiless One) or, The Hindu Art of Love. (Ars amoris indica.) Translated from the Sanskrit .

      Cosmopoli, MDCCCLXXXV for the Kama Shastra Society of London and Benares, and for private circulation only,', 'Reprint 1885 - In 1873, Burton prepared an anonymous literal translation of the Kama-Shastra or The Hindoo Art of Love, of which only six copies were printed. It was planned to reissue the work in 1885, but only proofs appeared before plans for publication were abandoned. However, no less than three reprints appeared soon after, all bearing the date 1885.This copy, printed on thick, watermarked paper, conforms to Penzer's description of the first reprint edition, being 'slightly broader than the subsequent reprints', though he had not personally seen a copy of this edition. Burton's Kama Shastra Society and its quasi-scholarly publication of erotic material served as the model for Leonard Smithers' later Erotika Biblion Society. 8vo (190 × 120 mm), pp. xvi, 144. Small diagrams to text. Partially uncut in early twentieth century half morocco. Bookplates of F.P. Richardson and Charles S. Dixwell, together with the latter's inkstamp. Spine faded, but an excellent copy. [Penzer, An Annotated Bibliography of Sir Francis Burton, pp. 171-173.]

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade) ...

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company,, 1885. With one hundred and seventy-four illustrations. Octavo (214 × 164 mm). Publisher's original half morocco, marbled edges, gilt rules to covers, spine lettered gilt with gilt decorated compartments, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece (second state, with the imprint of the Heliotype Printing Company and with "Karl Gerhardt, Sc." added to the finished edge of the shoulder), illustrated throughout with 173 text illustrations after E. W. Kemble. Spine sunned, extremities and tips worn, covers a little scuffed, some foxing and marks to contents. An excellent copy. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the publishers to Daniel Whitford, Clemens's lawyer: "To Daniel Whitford, with regards of the publisher, Chas. L. Webster. New York, February 21st, 1895." Daniel Whitford, attorney for New York firm Alexander & Green, acted for Webster & Company and was also retained by Clemens several times. He acted for Clemens in the highly publicised lawsuit over the dramatisation of the Prince and the Pauper by Abby Sage Richardson. In 1890, Clemens and the producer, Daniel Frohman, were sued by Edward H. House, who claimed that Richardson's adaptation was plagiarised from House's dramatisation of the novel, written for Clemens years before. Frohman paid House from Clemens's royalties to prevent the closure of the play; in turn, Clemens sued Frohman for his royalties (amounting to five or six thousand dollars) in 1894. More bibliographical baloney has been written about Huckleberry Finn than any other American publication. Only three substantive changes were introduced after the first printing: at p. 13 the erroneous page reference "88" was changed to "87"; at p. 57 the misprint "with the was" was corrected to "with the saw"; and at p. 9 the misprint "Decided" was corrected to "Decides". This copy has all these in first state. The frontispiece was printed separately and inserted at random, and has no relation to the order of the printed sheets. Copies in the original half morocco binding are the least often met with. Less than two weeks before publication, the publisher Webster announced that he was binding 20,000 copies in cloth, another 2,500 in sheep, and 500 copies in half morocco. Webster's own copy, also half morocco, was dated by him as having been received from the binder on 26 November 1884. At some stage it was realised that the Uncle Silas illustration on page 283 had been mischievously tampered with. The offending leaf was cancelled and replaced by a new printing of the plate in cloth copies. In this copy, the illustration is in second state.

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885 Illustrated with 174 illustrations by Edward Windsor Kemble. First edition, with many of the first issue points, including: cancel title leaf with the copyright notice dated 1884 (second state), the illustration "Him and Another Man" listed as page 88 on page 13, "with the was" on page 57, page 283 in the third state with a straight fly on a cancel leaf, third state page 155 with the final five larger than the first, page 161 lacking the signature mark, leaf 238 pasted under the terminal endpaper, frontispiece in the first state with the tablecloth visible and with Heliotype Printing Company imprint. Publisher's decorative green cloth, with an illustration of Huck Finn to the front panel in green and gilt, lettered in green and gilt, pale peach endpapers. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor fraying to the spine ends and corners, bright spine, clean panels, minor tear to the front hinge, otherwise sturdy spine, short closed tear to the frontispiece and title page, otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a very bright and clean copy, free of any repairs or restorations. BAL 3415. This copy of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of the first American editions issued in a green cloth binding. Other bindings for this title include blue cloth, library (sheep) binding, and deluxe (half morocco) binding. While most copies of Huckleberry Finn in all binding variants have a third state title leaf, as "no copy of the published book has been seen, or reported, with the copyright notice dated 1885," this copy has the second-state title page - a cancel leaf that preceded the third-state conjugate leaf, indicating that it may be an earlier issue than the copies with the title leaf in the third state. Additionally, this cloth bound copy contains the definitive issue points on pages 13 and 57, as well as nearly all of the issue points found in cloth copies, with the exceptions of pages 155 and 283; notably, page 283 is usually found in the third state in cloth bindings, and the uncorrected illustration with the curved fly is found almost exclusively in the sheep-bound copies and BAL notes that "no examined copy of the published book has the defaced plate" indicative of the second state. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a pseudo companion novel to Twain's highly successful The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876); although both are set in the antebellum South, Tom Sawyer is the tale of a young boy's mischievous adventures, while Huckleberry Finn involves a disenfranchised youth's moral dilemmas about social conflict. Huckleberry Finn is a youth who runs away from his alcoholic father and befriends Jim, a run-away African-American slave seeking freedom in the North. The dialog of the text features local dialects drawn from Twain's experiences living in the South. When it was first published in the United States in 1885, Huckleberry Finn was highly scrutinized and was banned by several libraries. Interestingly, the text was banned not for its saturation of racist vocabulary and prejudiced world-views, but for its depiction of criminal, lower class white Americans. Although it continued to be challenged in the 20th century for its depiction and treatment of African-Americans, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn remains one of the Great American Novels. Indeed, Ernest Hemingway proclaimed that it was the beginning of American literature: "There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.". Illus. by Kemble, Edward Windsor. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Sitting Bull Photograph c.1885

      D.F.Barry, Birmarck, North Dakota, no date. (c.1885). First Edition. Not Relevant. Very Good Condition. Albumen photograph of the famous Sioux Chief standing in a studio setting, taken by the well known photographer D.F. Barry of Bismarch, North Dakota. Whilst not detailed, it is likely that this photo would have been taken whilst Sitting Bull was at the Fort Yates, Standing Rock Agency on the South / North Dakota boundary, where he had returned, along with 186 of his tribe, in 1881 following his self imposed exile in Canada following the fight at the Little Big Horn in June 1876 and the death of General Custer together with a large portion of his troops. Whilst at the agency, Sitting Bull briefly went on tour with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and made a significant income from performances, selling photographs and autographs to the crowds, though reputedly giving much of his money away to the poor and homeless. He might reasonably be described as the first "celebrity" Indian due to his popularity on the tour, whilst still feared by the authorities in the form of the Agent at Fort Yates and some elements of his tribe, an issue which would ultimately lead to his murder in 1890. The photograph features Sitting Bull in a full headdress of feathers, whilst holding a war club in his left hand. On the original D.F.Barry mount, with imprint and title in the lower margin, and pictorial imprint on the reverse. Image 5.5 x 3.75 inches, mount 6.5 x 4.25 inches. The image is creased horizontally at the centre, causing the surface of the print to break. There is no loss however. Originally from the library of Harry & Connie Lockwood, Cincinnati, Ohio, and sold at auction Thursday 4th November 1999. Quantity Available: 1. Category: General Custer; Inventory No: 188467. .

First edition of this tale of rags to riches and the subsequent downfall of its protagonist.

Chemise & slipcase - Fine.. xix, [1 (blank)], 444 pp. Text in French. 4to. Scarce Red-Cross volume, of which OCLC records 5 institutional holdings [none in the US], inscribed to Dr Joseph Gardner, a prominent Indiana citizen and early friend/benefactor of Clara Barton, as well as patron of the recently-formed American Red Cross [founded in 1881, and of which Barton was president when this volume was inscribed]. Barton had a long-standing friendship with the Gardners, with her one-time sectetary Enola Lee, becoming the 3rd Mrs. Joseph Gardner. In 1893, Dr. Gardner donated a large plot of his land in Indiana to the American Red Cross, which Barton envisioned becoming a central-states headquarters/warehouse for the organization. All was to come to naught however, as the plot was never developed & ulitmately sold to settle back taxes, et al. Such was to later cause Barton problems, however, as she was accused of financial malfeasance, which ultimately contributed to her 1904 retirement from the Red Cross. Cf. Cavinder, MORE AMAZING TALES OF INDIANA, pp. 79 - 80. Early inscribed Barton material is somewhat uncommon in the trade. We are pleased to be able to offer this volume, documenting the friendship between these two civic-oriented individuals.

Fine, attractive copy of this beautifully illustrated book, masterfully incorporating his drawings with the text, in style of Johannot. Leloir (1853-1940) was one of the true professionals in the history of French illustration. Books with his designs appeared over five decades. Working by preference with stories laid in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, he was at pains to make his costumes as accurate as possible. It was his celebrity in this field, indeed, which led Douglas Fairbanks to bring him to Hollywood as artistic director of The Iron Mask (1929). His illustrations are abundant, precise, and objective." -Ray, French Illustrated Books.As for A Sentimental Journey, one of his masterpieces, Ray observes that "every episode in Sterne's short text finds its appropriate visual commentary."

        Songs of Innocence; WITH: Songs of Experience

      Edmonton, London: William Muir, 1885. First color reproductions of William Blake's illuminated Songs of Innocence (1789) and Songs of Experience (1794), preceded only by the hand-colored copies printed by Blake himself. Startlingly vivid and direct, these short visionary lyrics include "The Lamb," "Night," "The Chimney Sweeper," "The Clod and the Pebble," "Ah! Sunflower," "London," and "The Tiger": "When the stars threw down their spears, / And watered heaven with their tears, / Did he smile his work to see? / Did He, Who made the lamb, make thee?" Few nineteenth-century readers had any sense of how Blake's poems were originally presented, each text etched within a vividly hand-colored image in the technique Blake called "illuminated printing." In 1884, William Muir set out to produce a series of color reproductions of Blake's illuminated works, beginning with Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. Working in lithography, he printed fifty copies of each volume, which were then colored by hand in imitation of Blake's originals. For Songs of Innocence, Muir followed the example of the Pearson copy (originally presented by Blake to Flaxman), and for Songs of Experience, the Beckford copy. This set comprises number 49 of Songs of Innocence and number 32 of Songs of Experience, both copies signed and numbered by Muir, and marks an important step in the popular and critical recognition of Blake's originality. Fine bright copies of landmarks in English Romanticism. Two large quarto volumes, measuring 9 by 11 inches, original blue-grey wrappers with white paper spines, manuscript titles, tissue guards, uncut. Prefaces in both volumes; 33 hand-colored lithographs in Songs of Innocence, including colophon; 28 hand-colored lithographs in Songs of Experience; general title to both works in Songs of Experience. Light edgewear to wrappers of both volumes, Songs of Experience disbound. Housed together in custom chemises and half-morocco slipcase.
