        Eighd. Signatur auf Photographie-Postkarte. [ca. 13,4 x 8,7 cm].

      Alt auf Karton montiert. - Wigmann, (1886 - 1973), studierte 1910-1911 in Hellerau bei Émile Jaques-Dalcroze und bei Suzanne Perrottet rhythmische Gymnastik, fühlte sich dort jedoch künstlerisch unbefriedigt: Wie Suzanne Perrottet suchte auch Mary Wigman nach von Musik unabhängigen Bewegungen und selbständigem Körperausdruck. Danach hielt sie sich in Rom und Berlin auf. Auf Anraten des Malers Emil Nolde trat sie 1913 in Rudolf von Labans Schule für Kunst auf dem Monte Verità in der Schweiz ein. Laban war wesentlich an der Entwicklung des modernen Ausdruckstanzes beteiligt (Labanotation). In München zeigte sie ihre ersten öffentlichen Tänze Hexentanz I, Lento und Ein Elfentanz. Sie blieb während des Ersten Weltkrieges in der Schweiz bei Laban als dessen Assistentin und unterrichtete in Zürich und Ascona. 1917 bot sie in Zürich drei verschiedene Programme, unter anderem mit den Tänzen "Der Tänzer unserer lieben Frau", "Das Opfer", "Tempeltanz", "Götzendienst" und "Vier ungarische Tanze nach Johannes Brahms". Dieses Programm führte sie erneut 1919 in Zürich und später in Deutschland auf. Erst die Aufführungen in Hamburg und Dresden brachten ihr den großen Durchbruch. Mary Wigman ist von vielen namhaften Fotografen tanzend und in Portraits aufgenommen worden, darunter Hugo Erfurth, Charlotte Rudolph, Albert Renger-Patzsch und Siegfried Enkelmann. (Zitat)

        A Treatise on Beverages, or, The Complete Practical Bottler. Full Instructions for Laboratory Work with Original Practical Recipes for All Kinds of Carbonated Drinks, Mineral Waters, Flavorings, Extracts, Syrups, Etc.

      xxv, 818 pp. 8vo. This edition, issued in the same year as the original which was self-published by the author, is the same in all aspects save the presence of ads before and after the text (the edition offered here lacks them). An industry guide to the production and bottling of carbonated beverages and other related products, written and published by a chemist with thorough knowledge of the bottled beverage industry. Illustrations of industry equipment throughout text. From the introduction: 'The author, having traveled in various parts of the globe, has handled all kinds of machinery and manufactured all sorts of beverages, and having acquired a great deal of practical information and experience, he has concluded to take upon himself the task of gathering together all the practical hints, suggestions and points, pertaining to the subject.' Various technologies that were, at the time, cutting-edge science are discussed in detail. The current giant in the bottled carbonated beverage industry, Coca-Cola, was originally released in 1886, and did not begin bottling its product until 1891. This was, then, a very timely publication, released amid a flurry of competition between fledgling companies to gain a firm foothold in what is now a multi-billion dollar industry. Includes over 400 illustrations throughout text. Includes sections on: Water; Carbonic Acid Gas; Carbonating Apparatus; Bottling; Dispensing Carbonated Beverages; The Laboratory; Natural and Artificial Mineral Waters; Carbonated and Saccharine Beverages. The last section includes two chapters related to alcoholic beverages, the second of which discusses the fermentation of various types of beer.Keywords: CHEMISTRY BEVERAGES DRINKS CARBONATED SOFT DRINK CHEMIST BOTTLER BOTTLED SODAS MINERAL WATERS FLAVORINGS EXTRACTS SYRUPS COCA-COLA COKE PEPSI INDUSTRY RECIPES BREWING FERMENTATION BEER ALCOHOLIC ALCOHOL Hinges just starting.

His premature death removed one of the brilliant French dermatologists (Pusey A : The history of dermatology, pp. 119-120).

        KIDNAPPED

      1886. [an attractive 1st issue copy] being Memoirs of the Adventures of David Balfour in the Year 1751. [London:] Cassell & Company, 1886. 1 page undated ads plus 16 pp ads dated Apr 1886. Original green cloth. First Edition, first issue. In mid-18th Century Scotland, 17-year-old David Balfour is cheated out of his inheritance by a greedy uncle, who has him kidnapped and shipped to the Carolinas; with numerous challenges Balfour manages to get back to Scotland to fight to regain his property and his name. Stevenson began KIDNAPPED early in 1885 "partly as a lark, partly as a pot-boiler" (according to himself); he finished it in Spring 1886, having interrupted it part way through to write DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. He had accepted Sidney Colvin's suggestion to cut short the novel and leave the rest for a sequel (which he did, with DAVID BALFOUR / CATRIONA, in 1893).~This is a copy of the first issue (with "name his business" on p. 40, "nine o'clock" on p. 64, and "Long Islands" on p. 101). The ads also are in the first (April) state (some first-issue copies have the July ads that are present in the second issue). This copy's color is green, one of several used without priority.~This is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any soil or wear (a few tiny specks in the cloth, light foxing on a few leaves); the original endpapers are not cracked, and the gilt lettering on the spine remains rather bright. We seldom see the first issue in much better condition. Beinecke 378; Princeton 31 (copies 1-4).

        Methodus de conscribendis epistolis, ... secundum veram artis rationem tradita ...Cologne, heirs of Arnold Birckmann, 1570. Small 8vo (15.5 x 10.5 cm). Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, traces of thong ties.

      Adams M76; Bibl. Belg. M89; CLC M65; Jacoby, Georg Macropedius (1886) 11b; USTC 675855; VD16 L404. The second Cologne edition of two of the most important sixteenth-century textbooks on the art of letter writing, by Macropedius (along with two smaller works) and Hegendorf, often published together. Georgius Macropedius or Joris van Lancvelt (1487-1558) devoted a lifetime of hard work to teaching in the schools of the Brethren of the Common Life. By 1510 he had begun teaching at Bois-le-Duc and his Asotus, the first of the Latin School plays for which he is best known today, was composed there. Mascropedius was ordained as a priest and went on to teach at Liege (ca. 1525-1529) and Utrecht (ca. 1529-1556). In addition to the twelve plays, he published Latin School songs and textbooks on grammar, dialectic and prosody (two of these smaller works are included in this edition).With an early owner's name struck through on the title-page, a couple marginal annotations and a few brief passages underlined. Ten lines of a sample letter concerning theology on P1v have been marked for cancellation and a blank slip pasted over them, but the text can still be read through the slip. With a tear along the fold of the title-page and a few small and mostly marginal worm holes, very slightly affecting the text in 2 quires, but otherwise in good condition, with the title-page slightly dirty and the corner of one leaf torn off, not affecting the text. It is nearly untrimmed, with an occasional deckle preserved. The binding is wrinkled, with a few small tears and lacking most of the ties.

        William Notman - Builder's Photograph of CPR Steam Locomotive No. 401 at Montreal New Shops in 1886

      Montreal, QC: W. Notman, 1886. Good. Notman photograph of CPR Steam Locomotive No. 401 [also renumbered as CPR 1300 & CPR 3100 after rebuilds] with tender, both freshly minted at the Montreal New Shops in 1886. Albumen photographic print (14 inches tall x 21 inches wide), mounted onto heavy card (22 inches tall x 28 inches wide), with "W. NOTMAN. PHOTO" stamped in blind onto card mount under photo at bottom right . The 401 (2-8-0) was built by Canadian Pacific Railway Company, New Shops, Montreal, Quebec, September 1886. The builder's plate "1048" is also stamped with "Montreal 1886", the side running light is also painted with "401". It was scrapped March 1922 after 35 years and 6 months of service. Ref. CPRsteam dot org. Image and card mount with fading and toning, two large vertical tone lines from cedar backing boards used in original framing, framer's notes in pencil and more prominent toning verso. An undocumented Builder's Photo, with no record of this Notman CPR 401 image found in any current online reference, nor in the current database at the Notman Photographic Archives, nor in their old database, nor in their old paper indexes housed in the McCord Museum at McGill University, the primary depository for the Notman fonds. Most certainly an image taken and mounted by the Notman Studio (card mount blind stamped under photo at bottom right "W. NOTMAN. PHOTO") and possibly, by W. Notman himself, for as Stanley G. Triggs notes in Dictionary of Canadian Biography "Notman's personal authorship of photographs produced by his studio is rarely documented, but whenever it is the same style is evident, characterized by simplicity and economy, tending to starkness in some cases and even to abstraction in others. Notman had the ability to extract the essence of his subject through his choice of viewpoint, light, and line, and he was able simultaneously to describe it accurately and to provoke in the viewer an emotional response to it. ... On the other hand, because Notman photographs also accented realism and authenticity of dress or equipment, they constitute a valuable social record." in addition, with regards to the number of other potential photographers in his employ at the time "... [staff] including photographers and painters, their apprentices and assistants, bookkeepers and clerks, receptionists and secretaries, dressing-room attendants, and printing, dark-room, and finishing personnel.... reached a low of 25 in 1886 before climbing back to 38 by 1892." i.e. operating with just 25 employees only 2 years prior to the date of this image and quite possibly, increasing the likelihood that this image may have been taken by W. Notman. An interesting photograph, documenting the advances of the industrial age by the best and "... the first Canadian photographer with an international reputation." Nora Hague.

        Life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Life of Longfellow) with Extracts from his Journals and Correspondence (Large Paper edition - 3 volume set)

      Ticknor and Company, Boston, MA 1886 - B&W Illustrations; SIGNED EDITION. This is the Large Paper Edition, limited to 300 copies, twenty-five of which are reserved for England. This copy is #5 - for America. Three Volume Set. This set includes, tippedth-in three handwritten and signed letters by Samuel Longfellow to the publisher (Ticknor) regarding possible changes to be made for either an updated edition or a new edition of the book. It is likely that this set was the property of the publisher as a working copy. The set is in overall Very Good+ condition and was likely issued without dust jackets. The covers of the books have some edge wear and rubbing along with some ground-in dirt. Volume two has had the front spine joint professionally repaired where it had cracked. The text pages are clean and bright. The foredge and bottom edges of the book are untrimmed. The front inner hinge of Vol. One is cracked. The inner hinge of vol. Two has been repaired. Two of the letters have been tipped-in and one letter and a lithograph portrait of H. W. Longfellow have been laid-in. This is a unique copy which shows the true effort put into the detail (almost to the point of nitpicking) of a book so lovingly compiled. Samuel Longfellow was the younger brother of H. W. Longfellow and a clergyman and hymn writer in his own right. "Samuel Longfellow was born June 18, 1819, in Portland, Maine, the last of eight children of Stephen and Zilpah (Wadsworth) Longfellow. His older brother was the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He attended Harvard College and graduated in 1839 ranked eighth in a class of 61. He went on to study at Harvard Divinity School, where his classmates included Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Samuel Johnson, with whom he would later collaborate in his hymn writing. He is considered part of the second-generation of transcendentalists; after becoming a Unitarian pastor, he adapted the transcendental philosophy he had encountered in divinity school into his hymns and sermons. Longfellow served as a pastor in Fall River, Massachusetts (1848) , Brooklyn's Second Unitarian Church (1853) , and Germantown, Pennsylvania (1878-1882). After his older brother's death, Longfellow published a two-volume biography of him in 1886. He wrote the book while living at his brother's former home, Craigie House in Cambridge, Massachusetts." ; Signed by Editor [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De vogelwereld. Handboek voor liefhebbers van kamer- en parkvogels. Met driehonderd afbeeldingen in chromolithographie.

      - Groningen, J. B. Wolters, 1886. Folio (36.8 x 27.3 cm). Two title pages, 274 [xvi, 156; (ii), 100] pp; 48 [26; 22] large, chromolithographed plates. Publisher's decorative full cloth with gilt and black embossing on the front board, gilt title on the front board and spine. Bevelled edges. Yellow endpapers.= Perhaps the most sumptuous of the late-19th-century Dutch bird books, with fine illustrations in full colour by J. Bungartz, G. Lübbert and C. t' Felt. The first part deals with wild birds, including parrots, etc., the second with poultry and other domesticated birds. The plates are very beautiful and therefore a complete copy, such as this one, has become very rare. Nissen errs in listing 27 plates for the first part; plate numbering jumps from 20 (the last of the exotic birds) to 22 (the start of the indigenous birds). Boards a bit soiled, edges, in particular spine ends, rubbed. Some light spotting throughout, thumbing in the lower margins, otherwise a very good copy. Nissen IVB, 686. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
