        S/W Originalabzug, Russolo und Vantongerloo im Café zeigend. [ca. 11 x 14,9 cm].

      Rückseite mit hds. Bleistift-Titelei in franz. Sprache. - An den Kanten leicht berieben. - Luigi Russolo (1885 - 1947) veröffentlichte 1913 das musikalische Manifest "L'arte dei rumori" (Die Kunst der Geräusche). Ausgehend von dem Geräuschpegel moderner Großstädte und Maschinen, setzte er sich mit der Behandlung von Geräuschen in der Musik auseinander. Zudem entwickelte er diverse Instrumente zur Geräuscherzeugung: Der "intonarumori" ("Geräuscherzeuger") war eine Zusammenstellung verschiedener Kästen mit Schalltrichtern, die speziell behandelte Membrane zur Erzeugung verschiedener Geräusche beinhalteten. Ihr Höhepunkt war das Russolophon 1924. Keines der Instrumente blieb nach dem 2. Weltkrieg erhalten. Vantongerloo, (1886 - 1965), übersiedelte 1928 nach Paris. Er trat ebenso wie Russolo der kosmopolitische Künstlervereinigung Cercle et Carré (dt.: Kreis und Quadrat die 1929 gegründet wurde) bei, die nur ein Jahr bestand, aber eine nennenswerte Ausstellung organisierte. Gründer waren der Zeichner, Dichter und Kunstkritiker Michel Seuphor und der Maler Joaquín Torres García, die in Reaktion auf die Omnipräsenz des Surrealismus beschlossen hatten, Künstler konstruktivistischer Tendenz zu vereinen. Cercle et Carré förderte die neuen Entwicklungen und Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der Abstrakten Kunst. Während ihres kurzen Bestehens gab die Gruppe drei Ausgaben der gleichnamigen Kunstzeitschrift heraus. Die einzige, von Seuphor organisierte Ausstellung der Gruppe fand im April 1930 in der Galerie 23 in der Pariser Rue La Boétie statt. Die Ausstellung gilt als die erste internationale Gruppenausstellung für Abstrakte Kunst. (Zitat).

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. First American edition. Near Fine. A beautiful copy in the publisher's green cloth, stamped in black and gilt. Contains the three first printing points: "Huck Decided" on p. 9; "Him and another Man" listed on p. 88; and "with the was" on p. 57. The other leaves were assembled at random and have no bearing on whether a copy is first or second printing, although variant states exist. A very nearly Fine copy with bright gilt and a tight page block. Very slight wear at the spine ends and corners and a small ding at the top of the front board. Without repair or work of any kind. On the whole, an excellent copy of the book that Hemingway claimed was the source for all modern American literature and "the best book we've had." BAL 3415. MacDonnell, 31. "We are also presented with a chapter from an unpublished work by the writer, detailing the adventures of a Southwestern boy a quarter of a century ago, which places before us in vivid colors the rough, hilarious, swaggering, fighting, superstitious ways of the bygone raftsmen. Rude, sturdy, unflinching, and raw though the picture is, it is likely to stand a long while as a wonderful transcript from nature, and as a memorial of the phase of existence which is described that will not easily be surpassed in the future.

        CONGO FREE STATE: DER CONGO-STAAT UND DAS FREIHANDELSGEBIET.

      Lithography in colour, 53 x 40,5 cm (20.8 x 15.9 inches) (Good, soft folds with tiny tears, light foxing). - Gotha: Justus Perthes, April 1885. One of the first separately issued maps of the Congo Free State and its free-trade territories, made by the Gotha Geographical Office for the German trade in the colonies in Africa. - This rare separately published map shows the Congo Free State, a state in Central Africa from 1885 to 1908, which was in personal union with the Kingdom of Belgium under Leopold II. The state was founded in early 1885 at the Berlin conference. The map, published in April 1885, shows the newest boundaries of the Congo Free State (green), stations of the Congo Company (cities underlined with red), and free-trade territory in the Congo Basin (beige). Other colours show the German, British, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian colonies, as well as the Sultanate of Zanzibar. According to the text on the left-hand side the author, Hermann Habenicht, based the map on the latest available information from official sources. The borders of the Congo Free State were marked, as issued on March 5 in the Belgian magazine Le Mouvement Géographique. The magazine was founded a year before to promote and documented Belgian colonisation of Congo. The German free trade territories are marked according to the newest information, published a month before, on March 3 in Deutscher Reichsanzeiger, the official newspaper of the German government. The north border of the Congo Free State on the map differs from the maps before. The author set the north border much lower, following the (false) discovery by the Russian explorer Wilhelm Junker (1840 –1892) rather than the new survey by Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904). Junker claimed the river Uele (Welle) was joining the river Chari in the north, which flows to the Lake Chad. Stanley on the other hand correctly established the Uele joins the Mbomou River at Yakoma. The cartographer Hermann Habenicht was at the same time also making a draft for a 10 sheet wall map of Africa. Hermann Habenicht (1844-1917) was a German cartographer, active in the Gotha Geographic Office. Schooled by a famous map-maker August Petermann since he was 15 years old, he soon took over the drafts for map reliefs for publications such as Stielers Hand-Atlas, and eventually specialised for non-European cartography. In 1885, the same year as this map, Habenicht started working on a 10 sheet wall map of Africa, which was published the following year with a title Justus Perthes’ Spezialkarte von Afrika. Habenicht was a teacher of Hermann Haack, one of the most influential German map-makers of the 20th century.

        THE WORLD'S GREATEST IMPORTING ESTABLISHMENT. MAIN BARNS OF THE HOLBERT HORSE IMPORTING CO. A.S. HOLBERT, PROPRIETOR. GREELEY, DELAWARE COUNTY, IOWA. [caption title]

      Milwaukee, WI: The Gugler Litho. Co, 1885. Color lithograph, 19 x 27 in. image, on a 24 x 32 in. sheet. The several barns of the Holbert Horse Importing Company are shown, the roofs and walls lettered with advertisements for their services as importers of Percherons, Belgians, and English Shires, as well as suppliers of draft, coach and hackney horses. In the yard in front of the barns groups of horses stand with their red shirted trainers, potential buyers in top hats and bowlers peruse the stock. A nice bright image. Aaron B. Holbert (1853- established his horse breeding and importing business in Greeley, Iowa in 1878. The enterprise grew to have an international reputation in the field of breeding and selling registered horses in the United States. [see Capt. John Merry's "History of Delaware County, Iowa," [Chicago: 1914], v.1, pp.281-2] Henry Gugler and his son Julius joined the firm of Henry Seifert in Milwaukee in 1872, taking charge of the lithography department and bringing the first steam power press to Milwaukee, according to Jay Last in his "The Color Explosion: Nineteenth-Century American Lithography," [Santa Ana, CA: 2005], pp.88-9. They formed their own firm of H. Gugler & Son in Milwaukee in 1878, and when Henry died in 1883, Julius and his brothers created Gugler Lithographic Company. No listings found on OCLC.

        The Water-Babies: A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1885. New Edition, with one hundred illustrations by Linley Sambourne. Square octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt titles and illustrations to spine and front cover, publisher's device blocked in blind to rear cover, black coated endpapers, gilt edges. Text within single ruled frame. With 100 illustrations. Bookbinder's ticket to rear pastedown. Spine lightly faded and gently rolled, slight rubbing to extremities, most notably at spine ends, short scratch to front cover, inner hinges cracked but holding; a very good copy. First edition with Sambourne's illustrations. Inscribed by the author's widow, Frances Eliza Kingsley, on the half-title, "Frederick Thorne, in memoriam Charles Kingsley, Dec. 1885, F.E.K.". Charles Kingsley died in January 1875, Frances continuing to publish his works, including four volumes of pious selections from his writings. The Water-Babies was first published in 1863 and initiated the first golden age of children's books in England: he "was the first writer in England, perhaps the first in the world, except for H. C. Andersen, to discover that a children's book can be the perfect vehicle for an adult's most personal and private concerns … it was quite different from anything else written for children … in a small space, it managed to discover and explore almost all the directions that children's books would take over the next 100 years" (Carpenter, Secret Gardens).

        CONGO AND THE FOUNDING OF ITS FREE STATE: A Story of Work and Exploration

      London Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington 1885 - 2 volumes. First edition. Illustrated with a profusion of black and white illustrations throughout, both full-page and in the text as well as with fold-out maps including large folding maps in the pockets of the rear of the books. 8vo, publisher’s elaborately decorated pictorial brown cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt and black on the covers and spines. xxvii, 528; x, 483, Index, 32 ads. pp. A very handsome and bright set of this elusive first edition, very well preserved indeed. Some very minor evidence of age or use, but unusually pleasing set of these heavy well produced books. THE SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF STANLEY’S IMPORTANT AND POPULAR WORK ON THE FOUNDING OF THE CONGO FREE STATE. This two-volume work of exploration, history, and socio-political-economy is the result of Stanley's expedition up the Congo River in1879-84 and his attempts to re-open the interior for King Leopold of Belgium. From this journey came the establishment of the Congo State, the first free commericial state in Equatorial Africa. Henry Stanley was one of the most popular figures of the 19th Century. Adventurer, explorer and rescuer-- the public could not get enough of this romantic figure. In true Victorian style, this volume highlights his greatest achievements, his rescues of LIvingstone and Emin Pasha and his aid in establishing the Congo Free State. Sets of this important work in original cloth have become exceeding difficult to obtain. First English editions are now especially elusive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        OLD-WORLD IDYLLS. [with] AT THE SIGN OF THE LYRE

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co, 1885, 1886. n. These are aesthetically appealing volumes by a poet of the Aesthete School, described by Day as a "genteel bureaucrat" who specialized in "the graceful insouciance of 'vers de société' rather than the 'flowers of evil'" favored by others of his cohort. Specifically, Henry Austin Dobson (1840-1921) wrote light, witty verse that reflected his fascination with the 18th century; Day notes that "he could write heroic couplets with much of Pope's conversational ability" and "could reproduce the elaborate French stanzas" of triolet, ballade, and rondeau with a finesse matched by few Englishmen. Dobson's extensive knowledge of the 18th century was so respected that DNB says "any publisher intending to reissue an eighteenth-century work went to Dobson for an introduction." We have been unable to identify the binder "S. E. H.," but that artisan's taste and talent are self-evident here in a binding with which most professionals would be quite satisfied.. 159 x 102 mm. (6 1/4 x 4"). Two volumes. VERY ATTRACTIVE DARK GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT (stamp-signed "S. E. H. February 23, 1907" on front turn-ins), covers bordered by double gilt rules with tulip cornerpieces, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments tooled with gilt curls and tulips, gilt titling, turn-ins with plain and decorative gilt rules and volute cornerpieces, brown silk endleaves, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. In a (slightly rubbed) suede-lined and morocco-lipped marbled paper slipcase. Lyre with engraved frontispiece and endpiece. A few spots of faint foxing to the two plates, faint browning at edges because of paper stock, otherwise A VERY FINE SET, clean and smooth internally, and in lustrous, unworn bindings.

        Collection of gift books with fringe bindings

      Various, 1885. A collection of approximately 80 gift books and gift cards with fringe bindings, bound in paper wrappers with chromolithograph images, many over gilt backgrounds, the majority of them very good with occasional condition issues, including worn fringe, a few with water stains, and chipping and loss to spines. The collection includes approximately 36 books (i. e. more than 4 pages). Many with original printed paper folders and one in the original clamshell box. Accompanied by an assortment of 45 fringed cards for holidays and for mourning. A few titles duplicated but under different imprints. The use of silk fringe in the binding of gift books was a short-lived fad at the end of the 19th century. This collection serves as an excellent survey of this publishing phenomenon. A complete list of titles is available on request, as well as a medium-long story about how the collection came about.

        (Broadside): Enlightened Party. October 1, 1885

      Fitchburg, Mass.(?). 1885-1887. First. Approximately 9" x 14.5". Old folds with neat professional reinforcement at the folds on the verso, small chips and tears in the margins, mostly at the corners, a sound and very good example. Interesting political broadside from a little-known and relatively short-lived progressive party that was interested in printing money in order to buy land for poor people between the towns of Fitchburg and Leominster in order to make it a single city. The dating of the broadside is a little confusing: dated in 1885, but then mentions meetings in 1886 and 1887, the one in 1887 seemingly anticipates a meeting in October of 1887. One statement notes: "Our party point and plan is to improve, strengthen, and build up the government and remove the burden of taxes from the people, and ever stand ready to receive any good move come before them, and have women a chance to vote."

        Eighd. Signatur auf s/w Cabinettphotographie. [Hochformat, ca. 16,5 x 11,2 cm].

      Milano (Mailand), Guigoni & Bossi, o. J. [um 1885?]. Mit dem Prägestempel \"Proprieta Riservata\". - Rückw. Bleistift-Notiz (\"Die herrliche Duse\"), Gbrsp., eine Ecke bestossen. - M. Guigoni & E. Bossi leiteten ein Portätstudio am Corso Victor Emanuele 13, welche sich auf Kinderporträts, Persönlichkeiten der Musikszene und Politiker spezialisiert hatte. Sie kaufen das Fotostudio von Icilio Calzolari 1888 für 30.000 Lire, und produzierten Cartes des Visites, Cabinettphotographien und Silberabzüge. International bekannte Schauspieler, Sänger, und Komponisten, die nach Mailand kamen, um an der Scala und anderen Theatern aufzutreten, liessen sich in dem Studio ablichten: so auch Giacomo Puccini, Nellie Melba, Joseph Joachim, Eleonore Duse und Pietro Mascagni. Sie waren bis in die zwanziger Jahre des 20. Jahrhunderts tätig. (Zitat) - Duse, (1858 - 1924), war als \"Die Duse\" neben Sarah Bernhardt und Mrs. Patrick Campbell eine der großen Theaterschauspielerinnen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Ihr Spiel war subtil und wenig theatralisch und gilt als wegweisend für das Moderne Theater... Gegen Ende 1883 bot der sizilianische Schriftsteller Giovanni Verga Cesare Rossi die Inszenierung des Volksstücks \"Cavalleria rusticana\" an; Vergas Novelle diente später als Vorlage für Pietro Mascagnis gleichnamige Oper \"Cavalleria rusticana\" (1890). Im Gegensatz zum konservativen Rossi begeisterte sich die progressive Eleonora Duse sofort dafür und übernahm spontan die Rolle des Bauernmädchens „Santuzza“. Die Uraufführung am 14. Januar 1884 in Turin wurde ein großer Erfolg für das Schauspielerensemble und die Duse. Am 11. Mai 1884 gastierte die Gruppe in Mailand... Wegen ihres großen Könnens wurde Eleonora Duse, so wie ihr nachfolgend weitere große Darstellerinnen wie zum Beispiel die Garbo, bereits zu Lebzeiten überschwänglich „die Göttliche“ genannt. George Bernard Shaw, selbst Theaterkritiker, stellte sie, nachdem er ihre Interpretation der „Kameliendame“ gesehen hatte, sogar über ihre Rivalin Sarah Bernhardt. Sie wurde von zahlreichen Malern, unter anderen auch Franz von Lenbach und John Singer Sargent, verewigt und von Schriftstellern wie Rainer Maria Rilke, dem sie 1912 in Venedig begegnete, und dessen Freund Hugo von Hofmannsthal verehrt. Als erster Frau widmete ihr das Time Magazine am 30. Juli 1923 zur Vorankündigung ihrer Amerikatournee eine Titelgeschichte. (Zitat) Versand D: 7,00 EUR Autograph; Musik; Signatur; Theater

        A tree-peddler's sample book containing a large collection of colour fruit and botanical specimen plates]

      [Rochester, N.Y.] 1885 - 82 pochoir and chromolithographic plates, many with the Mensing & Stecher imprint, but also including Dewey, Horticultural Art Journal, and other imprints. Many plates with pencil annotations of prices. Contemporary black morocco, rebacked A Mensing & Stecher "tree-peddler's" sample book with fine color plates of fruit varieties. German-born Frank A. Stecher (1849-1916) first set up in business in Rochester in 1871 with Charles F. Muntz and Anton Rahn. They specialized in chromolithographic fruit plates, the first to do so in Rochester. In 1874-5 Muntz left the firm and J.D.A. Mensing became a partner. Three years later Rahn left. "Late in 1886, Stecher bought out Mensing and the firm became Stecher Lithographic Company. Stecher. was a leader in the chromolithographic industry in Rochester. An 1888 guide to the industries of Rochester noted that the firm employed 100 people and had machinery valued at $125,000" (K.S. Kabelac `Nineteenth-Century Rochester Fruit and Flower Plates' in The University of Rochester Library Bulletin (1982), vol.XXXV, p. 103). The Mensing & Stecher imprint is on many of the plates, which include both pochoir and chromolithographic examples. Cf.

        Collection of gift books with fringe bindings

      Various 1885 - A collection of approximately 80 gift books and gift cards with fringe bindings, bound in paper wrappers with chromolithograph images, many over gilt backgrounds, the majority of them very good with occasional condition issues, including worn fringe, a few with water stains, and chipping and loss to spines. The collection includes approximately 36 books (i. e. more than 4 pages). Many with original printed paper folders and one in the original clamshell box. Accompanied by an assortment of 45 fringed cards for holidays and for mourning. A few titles duplicated but under different imprints. The use of silk fringe in the binding of gift books was a short-lived fad at the end of the 19th century. This collection serves as an excellent survey of this publishing phenomenon. A complete list of titles is available on request, as well as a medium-long story about how the collection came about. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
