        A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

      Berlin,: W. Hagelberg, 1886.. Colour printed card, 115 x 166 mm., with pull-out tab which opens a booklet of eight black & white scenes with captions; a little creasing, and one view with a short tear, otherwise in very good condition. Very scarce Christmas souvenir of the Colonial and Indian Exhibition of 1866, depicting scenes from the Empire including two scenes featuring Australian Aborigines: "Family of Victorian Aboriginals in Native Hut" and "South Australian Forest Scene".Following the appearance of the first Christmas card in 1843 in England, Victorian society enthusiastically embraced the new fashion of exchanging cards. Souvenir cards such as this were collected for ladies' albums, and it is because of that hobby that these ephemeral curios have survived. This rare example was printed by Wolff Hagelberg, one of Europe's leading fine art printers. Hagelberg owned a large colour printing company in Berlin which published books and a vast range of postcards and greeting cards. This example, produced specifically for sale at the Exhibition in South Kensington, would have been handled by his London representative, A. Angermann.Early Christmas cards are very rare and highly sought-after, particularly any that illustrate Australian images.

        DEMOS

      1886. [an unusually fine set] A Story of English Socialism. In Three Volumes. London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1886. Original brown cloth decorated in dark brown. First Edition of Gissing&#39;s third novel to be published, which consisted of 750 copies.~By the time Gissing wrote DEMOS he was no longer a socialist. He gave no encouragement to optimistic hopes for popular government, whose critic he had become. By 1886 Gissing&#39;s working-class was anarchic, illiterate, befuddled, bestial, incapable of education (either by self-help or state-help), and motivated by greed and envy of the rich and the powerful. [S&C] ~DEMOS was a popular novel, published a month after the Trafalgar Square Riot of 8 February 1886 had awakened the public&#39;s fear of "the mob"; it was the first of his writings to achieve much in the way of success, going into a second edition (one volume) the same year. This was also the first of five novels to be published by Smith Elder who, by buying Gissing&#39;s copyrights outright, profited notoriously while passing along very little to the author. DEMOS was the only Gissing novel to have been published anonymously -- "both to attract the curiosity of potential readers (most of whom would not have heard of Gissing) and to emphasize the novel&#39;s controversiality" [Halperin].~This set is bound identically to the "a" (earliest) copy described by Coustillas -- with (on the spines) a comma after "Smith" and a round-topped ampersand. This is an unusually fine set: there is a small droplet-mark on one front cover, one endpaper is slightly cracked, and there is light foxing to a few leaves in each volume, but all three volumes are clean and bright, with scarcely any wear at all. Gissing three-deckers simply do not turn up in much better condition (especially since the vast majority went straight to lending-libraries). Though George Gissing did not become one of the "giants" of Victorian fiction, he is nonetheless today regarded as the supreme master of late-Victorian realism. Coustillas A3.1.a; not in Sadleir; Wolff 2544; Collie A4a; Spiers & Coustillas G1. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case.

        Roma - Ponte Cestio prima della Riforma 15 Agosto 1886.

      Sei straordinarie foto originali su doppia pagina (cm. 40x55 su cartoncino con didascalia di cm. 54x74) + 2 su una sola pagina, che mostrano il ponte prima della demolizione di 2 arcate. Antonio D?Alessandri (L?Aquila 1818 - Roma 1893) insieme al fratello Paolo Francesco (L?Aquila 1824 - Roma 1889) fu titolare di uno studio fotografico a Roma. Lo studio, intestato ?Fratelli D?Alessandri?, ebbe sede prima in Via del Babuino, poi in via del Corso e, infine, in Via Condotti. Fu tra i più affermati nell?Italia dell?Ottocento e per molti aspetti segnò in modo significativo la storia della fotografia italiana. Annota Silvio Negro, in uno dei suoi scritti sulla storia della fotografia a Roma, che il laboratorio dei fratelli D?Alessandri fu certamente il primo studio professionistico aperto nella Capitale; in tale circostanza don Antonio, come sacerdote cattolico, fu costretto a chiedere una specifica dispensa per esercitare liberamente il mestiere di fotografo, dispensa che l?autorità ecclesiastica gli concesse a patto di non ostentare sul lavoro l?abito ecclesiastico. L?appartenenza di don Antonio al clero, insieme all?indiscusso talento tecnico e artistico, favorirono il successo dell?impresa. I due fratelli ottennero infatti per primi i permessi per entrare in Vaticano e ritrarre il Pontefice Pio IX con la sua corte. Fu la grande Mostra della fotografia romana, tenuta nel 1952, a cura di Silvio Negro, a mettere in luce il ruolo centrale svolto dai D?Alessandri per la conservazione della memoria storica romana e a far conoscere a un grande pubblico il loro lavoro.
