        [Poster] Kathryn Kidder as Wanda in "Nordeck."

      Buffalo: The Courier Lith. Co., 1885. First edition. A very good copy, restored at top edge, text banner affixed to bottom (Condition B+).. Three portraits of the young Belle Époque actress Kathryn Kidder, flanked by four full length photographs of her in costume, taken by Napoleon Sarony, the greatest photographer of the American theater. Frank Mayo and John G. Wilson's play, based on "Vineta, the Phantom City" a translation of a novel by E. Werner, opened in 1884 in Chicago with Laura Don as Wanda, but when Don left for California, Kidder was given the role as the play moved to New York and Mayo went all out to promote her. Kathryn Kidder (1867-1839) was born In Newark or Evanston, Ill (various reports) and was privately educated until she attended the North Western Female College (where Emma Willard received her degree). Her early rise was described in 1885 at the time of this poster: "Frank Mayo meantime had heard of this promising pupil, and at once hunted her up, with a view to offering her the character of the Countess Wanda in his play of 'Nordeck.' After a careful study of the character and its possibilities, she accepted Mr. Mayo's offer, and spoke of the character to a friend in these words: 'It is a part I would have chosen if I had been consulted, and given my choice; and, whatever the future may bring, much shall be ascribed to the very fortunate opportunity afforded me in the character of the lovely Countess Wanda.' This character in 'Nordeck' is indeed lovely, as Miss Kidder says. The author has suggested a character that is quite ideal, and the young actress has clothed it with life and naturalness while portraying the romantic possibilities of the creation with all the enthusiasm of a young girl in the first flower of fulfillment. And it is not too much to say that the character of Wanda is due largely to Miss Kidder's efforts, whether unaided or otherwise; for her lines allow rather than demand the character that she portrays. Miss Kidder is tall, with a bright rather than simply beautiful face, a figure that is willowy and lithe, and motions that are at one and the same time impetuous and graceful. She realizes and feels as well as looks the young and impulsive character..." (Folio, Boston, vol. xxvii, June 1885, pp. 222-3). Afterwards she followed this with several Shakespeare seasons, playing Ophelia, Desdemona, Hermione and Perdita, Lady Macbeth, then Madame Sans-Gene; further Shakespeare revivals and old English comedy; School for Scandal, The Rivals, The Country Girl, then Salambo of Flaubert, and following this several modern plays, including The Embarrassment of Riches (Wallack's); The Woman of Impulse (Herald Square); and The Glass House." She had her own production company, wrote 'The Heart of her husband a domestic drama in three acts and two scenes', helped fund-raise for Women's Suffrage, and was married to Louis Kaufman Anspacher, an American playwright and director. Rare. OCLC and other databases show no copies of this nor any other posters for Nordeck nor for Kidder. The Library of Congress has an archive of her scrapbooks of news clippings relating to her stage career 1883-1909 and the NYPL has a promptbook of her play.

        Lansium Domesticum [Langsat or Duku]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, 1885. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from some light foxing. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Hoola Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. The Langsat or Duku is a fruit tree that is commonly found in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. This elegant print depicts the tree's fruit, which Hoola Van Hooten describes as being "wholesome and refreshing, pleasant to the taste and slightly aromatic." Still in her early twenties, Berthe Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, where he died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature , the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4. "Van Nooten was clearly more than competent, for the splendid tropical plants? have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics." (L. Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora p.330) Cf. Nissen BBI 931; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3025; cf. L. Tongiorgi Tomasi An Oak Spring Flora 87.

        Poinciana Regia [Royal Poinciana]

      Brussels: C. Muquardt, 1885. Chromolithograph, by P.Depannemaeker. Very good condition apart from some very minor foxing. A fine example of the spectacular botanical work by Berthe Van Nooten, from 'Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java'. Native to Madagascar, the ornamental Royal Poinciana tree is widely cultivated in tropical countries for its stunning bright orange and flame-red blossoms. It is also frequently referred to as the Flamboyant Tree, so-called because of its large, colourful flowers. Still in her twenties, Berthe Hoola Van Nooten had accompanied her husband to Jakarta (Batavia), capital of Java, from Belgium where he soon died. She was left with debts to pay and a family to support. With great ingenuity, she managed to get a selection of her paintings chromolithographed and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature , the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4. "Van Nooten was clearly more than competent, for the splendid tropical plants... have been depicted with great skill. She managed to accentuate the splendour of each species by adopting a style that combined great precision and clarity with a touch of neo-Baroque exuberance, revelling in the rich forms and colours of the tropics."

      , 1885. 1885. [JAPANESE FAIRY TALE SERIES] Kobunsha. THE FIRST 13 VOLUMES OF THE JAPANESE FAIRY TALE SERIES. This set of the series was published by the Hasegawa family when they were known as Kobunsha, working from an address in Minami Saegicho, Tokyo, their first address. The series began in 1885, printed on plain, uncreped paper and hence a bit larger than the creped versions, approximately 18.1 x 12.3 cm. The very first issues of the first few volumes had romanized Japanese language titles and no series volume number. Later volumes from the series had romanized titles first, as do several of the volumes from this set: NEDZUMI NO YOME-IRI (#6), KOBUTORI (#7), YAMATO NO OROCHI (#9) - MOMOTARO, URASHIMA and KACHIKACHI YAMA seem to be quite early appearances as they do not have "englished" titles as in later printings. Indeed, the first volume MOMOTARO, without any indication of a series number, is very early, indeed. The first illustration in THE CUB'S TRIUMPH (#12) is of a norimono with a moveable flap that, when lifted, reveals the fox cub within. All of these are early printings from the 1880s and very difficult to assemble as a set as such. They all have a bit of cover and content wear and some edgewear, as well. The plain-paper back cover of #4 is edge chipped and has been laid down. The collection is housed in a custom clamshell box.

        Manuscript letter book Brown and Bolton Company and F. M. Brown and Company. Textiles

      F. M. Brown & Company, New Haven 1885 - quarto, letter copy book from the days when business and personal letter often had manuscript copies on thin paper in a book. The covers are detached but present. 496 page book of letter copies- only a few unused pages. There is an index at the front where names of correspondents are listed for each letter page. Moste letters near the front are signed "Brown & Bolton Co." while toward the back half they are signed "F. M. Brown & Co." While we don't know much about Brown and Bolton, The F. M. Brown company advertsed textiles and other imported goods a bit later in the 1890's. Most letters are business letters with some about unpaid bills and threats to blacklist the person for failure to pay, a small number appear to be personal letters - one about children misbehaving another about getting a crayon portrait made. There are pencil notes from a previous owner on the front free endpaper stating that the book belonged to D. S. Gamber (name difficult to read) who worked for Brown and Bolton, but we did not spot his signature with that name in the contents. The binding is poor due to detached covers, the contents generally good, many pages are also detached, some with frayed edges, browning, corners folded, but overall, contents are a good collection of business letters from a purveyor of textiles in the 1880's USA. Note: due to size and weight, overseas shipping may be more expensive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Pl. 120 Ukiuki

      published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington 1885 - An extremely detailed hand-colored lithograph of a native Hawaiian flower by Mrs. Francis SInclair, published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington in 1885. Overall this print measures 10.4X14.5". This print is of superior quality, and in good condition with bright crisp paper and radiant coloring. Isabella McHutcheson moved to Hawaii after her marriage in 1863 to her cousin Francis Sinclair. Their family were the first European settlers to live on the island of Ni`ihau. Isabella was the niece of Elizabeth McHutcheson Sinclair who had famously bought the island of Niihau from King Kamehameha IV for $10,000 in gold in 1864. Isabella was born in Stirling, Scotland in 1840 and from a very young age she showed a real artistic proclivity. Part of her childhood was spent in New Zealand where she first acquired an interest in botany as well. During the years that her husband Frank ran the family ranch, Isabella Sinclair occupied her time collecting botanical specimens, painting watercolor sketches of the plants, and preparing a collection that eventually became a book: "Indigenous Flowers of the Hawaiian Islands." She took a specific interest in the plant life of the Waimea and Olokele regions which she compared to the New Zealand species she was familiar with. She painted a series of watercolors and identified each specimen with its botanical name (provided by Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker), natural habitat setting, Native Hawaiian name and blossoming period. This book was the first in existence to feature color plates of Hawaiian flowers and plants. With 44 color plates in all the book was an exquisite cross section of Native plants. Some foxing/staining and creasing. Some additional marks and tape residue in margins.

        Castle of Chillon

      M. Knoedler & Co, New York 1885 - Original copper printing plate, etched by L. Gautier, 17 13/16 x 25 15/16 inches, image: 14 3/4 x 23 7/8 inches. A very rare original printing plate: a view of the famous Swiss castle on the shore of Lake Geneva. The artist has captured here a timeless quality of the Castle and its surroundings. Much favoured by the Romantic movement in the 19th century, the Castle was made famous by Byron's "The Prisoner of Chillon," the tale in verse of Francois Bonivard, who tried to introduce the Reformation to Switzerland. He was chained to a pillar in the dungeon from 1532 to 1536: "Chillon! thy prison is a holy place And thy sad floor an altar, for 'twas trod, Until his very steps have left a trace Worn as if thy cold pavement were a sod, By Bonnivard! May none those marks efface! For they appeal from tyranny to God." Chillon, an excellent example of an early medieval fortress, was nearly pulled down for its stone in the 1860s. The castle, commanding the narrow passage between Lake Geneva and the sheer wall of mountains, was always a staging point on the road to Italy. The first fortress was built on the tiny, rocky islet at the edge of the lake in the 9th century. It was enlarged several times and the building pictured in the present image is mostly the 13th century work of Duke Pierre of Savoy. The plate is titled 'Castle of Chillon' and includes the imprint "Original Etching by L. Gautier," "Published by M Knoedler & Co 170 Fifth Avenue New York" and "Imp. Eudes."

Binding somewhat worn, bumped and chipped; slightly shaken. Slightly foxed; occasional paper imperfections. Not located in OCLC.The Birmingham Musical Festival took place on August 25-28, 1885, and included the premieres of Dvo ák's The Spectre's Bride, Gounod's Mors et Vita, Frederic Cowen's Sleeping Beauty, Charles Villiers Stanford's The Three Holy Children, and Alexander Mackenzie's Violin Concerto, Op. 32. Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924) was a British composer, teacher, and conductor. "A prodigiously gifted musician of great versatility, he, along with Parry and Mackenzie, did much to forge the new standards of the so-called ?renaissance' in British music at the end of the 19th century. As a composer he brought a technical brilliance to almost all genres, though success in opera, in which he aspired to excel, generally eluded him until the end of his life. In spite of his stature as a composer (particularly in the province of church music), he is perhaps best known as a teacher of several generations of British composers who passed through his hands at the RCM and Cambridge University."

Large octavo, pp366. Illustrated throughout. Internally clean save for the occasional thumbmark, portrait is creased with an old (discreet) repair to rear. Binding features raised bands to spine with gilt titles and decoration, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.

In addition, the portrait frontispiece has the tablecloth, or scarf, clearly visible. The contentious 'bulging fly' plate (p.283) was only included in publisher's leather copies and is therefore not pertinent to cloth copies. A fine copy of a rare printing. Blanck [3415].

The difficulties which have presented themselves in the territories ceded to the United States by Mexico relative to the rights pertaining to real estate have been exceedingly great. There are many questions arising under Mexican laws in said territories yet unsettled and innumerable ones must necessarily arise by virtue of the increase of trade, of progress, and of the transfer of property within the present domain of the Republic of Mexico" (Preface).

      1885. Hi, This lot is an 1885 Original Paperback Wisden. It has the Original Spine Paper without any Restoration. It is in Very Good Condition for the year and was in my set for a long time. The spine paper is excellent, just some minimal wear the corners. The book is very tightly bound, the covers are nice and bright and clean, the only downside is an inch crack to the spine paper but the book is still very tightly bound. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. Minimal spotting. Tiny rounding of cover corners with minor thumbing. No restoration and a great Wisden.

Dame Wiggins Of Lee And Her Seven Wonderful Cats: A Humorous Tale Written Principally By A Lady Of Ninety. Edited, With Additional Verses By John Ruskin. And With New illustrations By Kate Greenaway. With Twenty-Two Woodcuts. London: George Allen, 1885. Deluxe Large-Paper edition, with additional verses by John Ruskin and additional illustrations by Kate Greenaway. Large quarto (8 1/2 x 6 12/16 in; 217 x 168 mm). iv, [4], 20, [1] pp. Twenty-two woodcuts, pp. 3,4,8, and 9 by Kate Greenaway. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettered with gilt-stamped vignette. Bookplate of T.R. Young. A very fine copy.Originally published in 1823, here as a facsimile reprint with four additional verses and illustrations by Ruskin and Greenaway respectively."Ruskin's mood revived the idea of their collaboration on a book. Dame Wiggins of Lee and her Seven Cats was an early nineteenth century children's story which Ruskin believed had the right mixture of lightness and reassuring elements to merit reprinting. He had the woodcut illustrations of the 1823 edition republished, in line only, so that readers could colour them, and added four original verses to explain how the cats were educated. Kate provided four crude pencil sketches for the new verses. Her work was slight, and certainly out of keeping with the original heavy-lined woodcuts; nevertheless, Ruskin, in his euphoric mood, decided that the drawings were 'exactly right, and don't want a touch more.' He refused to alter or sharpen her lines, and, moreover, declared that if she could draw cats like these, she could forget his previous attacks on her rat-like dogs and cats" (Engen, p. 128).This special large-paper (quarto) edition was issued on Whatman paper in an edition of just 400 copies.Schuster & Engen 64.1e.
