        A Victorian Era Original Paper Crafts Album with Exceptional Furniture and Flower Still Life Examples

      OFFERING: A ca. 1887 original paper arts album with exceptional furniture and flower still life examples. The album was done in New York by Miss Rogers, a Froebel kindergarten teacher trainee, principally using paper folding, but with ornamental examples that use also multiple other Froebel paper craft 'occupations', including paper plaiting, cutting, interlacing, drawing, and painting. Examples and series are mounted on thirty card leaves that open in concertina format with mounts on both sides of the leaves, some with captions in pencil. Highlighting the album are the ornamental paper art works that integrate all her skills, including splendid examples of a Morris chair, with painted wood armature and folded paper and plaited paper cushions, a chaise longue in the Moorish style, with painted frame, folded paper cushions, plaited paper feet, and cut paper fringes, and a still life of Oxeye daisies in a painted terracotta flower pot decorated with freehand drawn snails, with folded paper flowers, and cut paper petals and stems. PROVENANCE: The Froebel album with ownership signature on the front pastedown is believed to have been done at the New York Seminary for Kindergartners by Miss Antoinette C. Rogers [1865-1938], (born and buried in Watertown, NY) who began teaching kindergarten at her own school in New Haven in 1889. Kindergarten-Primary Magazine cites a celebration for her 10th year of kindergarten in 1899. The training consisted of one year of course work and one year of practice teaching and she is believed to have studied with co-founder, Maria Kraus-Boelté. The album received a grade of A+. By 1911 Antoinette C. Rogers was so prominent in the field that she was President of the Froebel League of New York City (Yearbook of the Association for Childhood Education International, 1911, v. 18, p.19): her school is cited by the 1914 U.S. Government Education Bulletin for Kindergarten in the United States. RARITY: Although a good number of these Froebel method albums were made, original examples in good condition now rarely appear for sale. SIZE: 11 x 9.5 inches (279 x 241 mm) PAGINATION: 52 leaf sides have mounted series or examples, including nine ornamental. Some leaves have handwritten pencil captions. FORMAT: Light blue cloth board concertina portfolio with plain pastedowns and folding card leaves reinforced at the spine and fore-edges with grey cloth tape. CONDITION DETAIL: Leaf Mount 27 with offset toning, a few other examples with light offset toning / Card Leaves: some soiling, five leaves with some foxing or spotting at an edge / Portfolio Album: slight edgewear, rubs, corners bent in with wear / Upper Cover: top edge showing board in one area, some color fade, showing as white dots and lines / Lower Cover: two abrasion spots, some minor stain spots / Spine: crown and foot push-ins, minor joint tears, rubs, some soiling / Closure Ribbon: Very Good, light wear / Concertina Binding: Very Good, leaves reinforced with cloth tape at spine and fore-edges. FRIEDRICH FROEBEL [1782-1852]: In recent decades, Fröbel's play-based, integrated curriculum, designed to develop an appreciation in young children for harmony in Nature and the unity of all things has been extensively studied and written about with more than 13,000 scholar citations. It is now understood that the Froebel method's influence on education, literature, art, etc. has been wide-ranging. "My educational method offers to its pupils, from the beginning the opportunity to collect their own experiences from things themselves, to look with their own eyes and to learn to know by their own experiments, things and the relations of things to each other, and also the real life of the world of humanity." [Marenholtz-Bülow, Reminiscences of Friedrich Froebel, p. 226] FOLDS OF BEAUTY: are the principal part of Froebel paper folding and are based in large part on crystalline structures. Using the traditional blintz fold (a modern term, now widely adopted), initiated by folding four corners of a square to the center of the paper, numerous variations are possible. Other geometric shapes such as hexagons, octagons, etc. can also be used to make the folds. The Froebel variations is a term applied to use of the pinwheel (windmill) and it is estimated that more than 500 variations are possible. Froebel also has been passed down in the folding literature via the three dimensional Froebel star, often used for Advent star Christmas decorations. CHRONOLOGY: 1837: Froebel opened the Anstalt für Kleinkinderpflege [Institute for Fostering Young Children] in Bad Blankenburg, Thuringia, Germany. He renamed it Kindergarten (Children's garden) in 1840. / 1855: Among early commentators in English was Charles Dickens on paper cutting observed in a kindergarten; "By cutting paper, patterns are produced in the Infant Garden that would often, though the work of very little hands, be received in schools of design with acclamation." [Dickens, Infant Gardens, Household Words, July 1855] / 1856: The first kindergarten in the United States opened with teaching in German in the private home of Margarethe Meyer Schurz in Watertown, Wisconsin. / 1860: Elizabeth Peabody, "drawn to Froebel's emphasis on encouraging development in young children through play, gardening, group songs and games", intensively studied his methods. In 1860 she opened the first English language kindergarten in the United States in Boston, Massachusetts. (Patricia Cantor, Elizabeth Peabody) / 1868: The first kindergarten training school was established in Boston by Matilda and Alma Kriege. Matilda Kriege studied with Baroness von Marenholtz-Bülow, a patron, disciple and authority on Froebel. / 1873: Maria Kraus-Boelté [1836-1918]) came to the United States in 1872. Previously, she had trained in Hamburg for two years with Luise Froebel, and first worked and then directed the London kindergarten established by Bertha Ronge (sister of Margarethe Meyer Schurz). In 1867, she returned to Hamburg and taught training courses there, and subsequently, in Lübeck. She opened the New York Seminary for Kindergartners in 1873 with her husband, John Kraus, an advocate for the value of kindergarten who had previously worked at the U.S. Bureau of Education. The school became an influential center for the teaching of kindergarten in the United States. 1873: William Harris, superintendent of the St. Louis Public Schools, opened the first public kindergarten in the United States at the Des Peres School with Susan Blow as head teacher. Susan Blow had studied in New York with Maria Kraus-Boelté. / 1898: By 1898 there were 3,000 kindergartens in the United States with an enrollment of approximately 200,000 children.

        Kyosai gadan [Kyosai's Account of Painting]

      Iwamoto Shun 1887 [Meiji 20], Tokyo - Two parts in four volumes. Woodblock printed in colors. 'Part I gives Gyosai's thoughts on painting; part II, a life of the artist by his pupil Baitei Gaso. One of the novelties of the book is the introduction of a synopsis in English (of a kind) of the Japanese text. The artist's ability to reproduce any Japanese style is remarkable and alarming.'--British Library catalog. Kyosai (1831-1889) was one of the great Meiji-era artists. This book presents both a history of Japanese art as well as Western influences on the island nation. His guide to painting is crudely translated into English. In order to make his points, Kyosai reproduces works by several centuries of famous artists, with a breadth of styles from realist, romantic, primitive, refined, and grotesque (to apply Western labels). The printing is rather crude, giving the art an urgency and conveying Kyosai's passion for art and the history of art. It is rare that an artist is so able to take advantage of the severe limitations of a medium and turn them into an advantage. It reminds your humble cataloguer of the mimeograph revolution in poetry (again, a Western reference, for which I apologize), where poor printing quality emphasized the poets' need for self-expression and the desire to break new artistic ground. Kyosai gadan is a truly magnificent illustrated book, filled with goblins, courtesans, and chickens. Hillier & Smith 1980, 147. First edition (first printing). Four volumes near fine in wrappers with paper labels; bound with green thread. Folding case good only, with old tape repairs on the inside joints; the title written in ink on the spine, and the loss of both bone ties. Previous owner's chop in each volume. A presentable copy of a scarce and important book. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Song of Songs. With 26 etchings from designs by Edmond Hedouin and Emile Boilvin. From designs by Bida.

      Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott Co., 1887. 25 cm x 32 cm. 47 pages. 21 illustrations in black and white. Original hardcover. Excellent condition extremely rare edition (no.129 of 250 copies only) with only very minor signs of external wear. The Song of Songs also known as the Song of Solomon, Canticles, or the Canticle of Canticles, is one of the "scrolls" (megillot) of the Writings (Ketuvim), the last section of the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible. It is also the fifth book of Wisdom in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. In Sephardic Jewish tradition, the Song of Songs is read every Friday night for the divine loving union they see in it; Ashkenazim chant it on the Sabbath during Passover, marking the beginning of the grain harvest and commemorating the Exodus from Egypt.nScripturally, the Song of Songs is unique in its celebration of sexual love. It gives "the voices of two lovers, praising each other, yearning for each other, proffering invitations to enjoy". The "daughters of Jerusalem" form a chorus to the lovers, functioning as an audience whose participation in the lovers' erotic encounters facilitates the participation of the reader.nJewish tradition reads it as an allegory of the relationship between God and Israel. Christian tradition, in addition to appreciating the literal meaning of a love song between man and woman, has read the poem as an allegory of Christ and his "bride", the Christian Church.

        "The Palace of Pleasure" from Faust. Original set design for a production at the Empire Theatre, London, 1895. Signed and dated by the artist "Wilhelm inv. del 1895" at lower right. From the important collection of dance historian George Verdak (1923-1993)

      An attractive, carefully executed, elaborately detailed design. Pitcher (most commonly referred to as Wilhelm) worked as a set and costume designer for ballets, pantomimes, comic operas, musical comedies, and Shakespearian and other theatrical productions. He is perhaps best-known for his work for the Empire Theatre in London from 1887 to 1915, where he designed both sets and costumes for numerous ballets, many of which starred Adeline Genée (she performed the skirt dance at the Empire Theatre in 1899 in "Round the Town Again"). He also contributed a number of articles to The Magazine of Art, including one entitled "Art in Ballet" in 1895. "Wilhelm was one of the most prolific stage designers of his day... For 20 years before World War I he was (in all but name) artistic director of ballet at the Empire Theatre, London. He wrote the scenarios and co-ordinated choreography, music and design into a coherent whole, ahead of similar concepts by the great choreographer Michael Fokine at the Diaghilev ballet. Wilhelm had great taste and his costumes were designed with strong attention to detail... His designs seem superficially charming, but are actually very practical, perfectly depicting in watercolour the fabrics he wanted the makers to use as well as indicating the character for which the design was intended." Website of the Victoria and Albert Museum "The legend of Faust has been a recurringly popular theme in dance. In 1723 John Rich presented his ballet pantomime The Necromancer or the History of Dr Faustus at the Lincolns Inn Fields theatre in London and during the 19th century there was a rash of Faust-inspired ballets... [including] Lanner's Faust" with music by M. Lutz and E. Ford, performed at the Empire Theatre in London in 1895. The Oxford Dictionary of Dance, p. 163. Verdak, noted ballet dancer and choreographer, was an important collector of historical documents and works of art relating to the dance, assembling a large and important archive over many years. After dancing with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and other companies, he became artistic director of the Indianapolis Ballet Theatre and professor of Dance at Butler University. While Wilhelm's costume designs are held in various public collections, his far more intricate set designs are not widely held and are rarely offered on the market.. Executed in watercolour and body colour on paper. 295 mm. x 380 mm. (11-5/8" x 14-7/8"). Three light vertical folds; 35 mm. tear to lower margin; remnants of old matting and glue to outer edge of mat; laid down to mat board. Provenance: The George Verdak Collection.

        A collection of six nineteenth century photograph albums containing nearly 300 portraits (cartes de visite and cabinet cards) of three generations of the Hawkins and Robertson families: Annie Griffith Roberts, her first husband Dr James Hawkins, her second husband, Dr Edward Bruce Robertson, and Oriana, one of the children of the second marriage

      The Robertsons came to Australia in 1887; Oriana married into the Moodie family of 'Wando Dale', Coleraine, Victoria. Of primary importance are the approximately 50 portraits featuring prominent members of pioneering Western District pastoral families: the Camerons of 'Dunan'; the Edgars of Pine Hills; the Gardiners of Nangwary; the McConochies of Konongwootong; and the Trangmans of Burswood. The photographs are contained in five full-leather quarto albums, and an attractive arch-topped six-panel folding panoramic frame (for cartes de visite) in full morocco.

        The Song of Songs. With 26 etchings from designs by Edmond Hedouin and Emile Boilvin. From designs by Bida.

      Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott Co. 1887 - Sprache: English 25 cm x 32 cm. 47 pages. 21 illustrations in black and white. Original hardcover. Excellent condition extremely rare edition (no.129 of 250 copies only) with only very minor signs of external wear. The Song of Songs also known as the Song of Solomon, Canticles, or the Canticle of Canticles, is one of the "scrolls" (megillot) of the Writings (Ketuvim), the last section of the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible. It is also the fifth book of Wisdom in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. In Sephardic Jewish tradition, the Song of Songs is read every Friday night for the divine loving union they see in it; Ashkenazim chant it on the Sabbath during Passover, marking the beginning of the grain harvest and commemorating the Exodus from Egypt. Scripturally, the Song of Songs is unique in its celebration of sexual love. It gives "the voices of two lovers, praising each other, yearning for each other, proffering invitations to enjoy". The "daughters of Jerusalem" form a chorus to the lovers, functioning as an audience whose participation in the lovers' erotic encounters facilitates the participation of the reader. Jewish tradition reads it as an allegory of the relationship between God and Israel. Christian tradition, in addition to appreciating the literal meaning of a love song between man and woman, has read the poem as an allegory of Christ and his "bride", the Christian Church.

        Collection of 57 albumen prints by Charles T. Scowen, Lala Deen Diyal, and other photographers. Mounted on cardboard and with contemporary handwritten captions.

      India, 1886-1887. - Measurements of prints mainly between ca 155 x 195 and 225 x 280 mm. Cardboard measurements 285 x 359 mm. In stable leather box with brass snap-lock; covers and sides gilt; top with gilt lettering "Indien 1886-87". Collection from the possession of the Austrian Imperial ensign Ferdinand Bublay, who was later to take part in the second circumnavigation of the world by the corvette "Fasana" (1893ff.). Contains 9 photos of Sri Lanka (Colombo, Kandy, Anuradhapura), 6 of Bombay (with the temple of Karli), 6 of Jaipur (and Amber), 3 of Delhi, 15 of Agra (of which 6 show the Taj Mahal), 4 of Lucknow, 1 of Benares, 6 of Calcutta, 5 of Darjeeling (and the Himalaya), as well as 2 pictures of natives (without precise location). Among the largely unsigned photographs are also several which can be attributed to important artists. At least three of the Ceylon photos are by Charles T. Scowen (fl. 1873-90); another of Jaipur is signed by Lala Deen Dayal (also: Diyal; 1844-1911); two others can be attributed to him due to his characteristic negative numbers. - Scowen arrived in Ceylon early in the 1870s, where he built up a successful studio within a few years. "His photographs have been judged technically and compositionally superior to the work of other British photographers working in the area. His prints show the natives at home and at work as well as the natural beauty of the island and its plant species" (National Galleries of Scotland). His pictures of the island are to be found in many important collections, among them the British Library, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Getty Museum, and the New York Metropolitan Museum. - Deen Dayal probably learnt the photography trade at the Thomason Civil Engineering College in Roorkee in 1863. After working for several years as an engineer and draughtsman in Indore, he in 1874 began his activity as a professional photographer (photo portraits of the Viceroy and the Prince of Wales, e. g.). His company remained one of the most important in India up until his death. "Much of this pre-eminence was accounted for by the sponsorship of both Europeans and Indians in high places: he was chosen to accompany Sir Henry Daly on his tour of the Bundalkund Agencies and in 1882 travelled through central India with Sir Lepel Griffin. The most important of these patrons however was the Nizam of Hyderabad who in 1884 appointed him state photographer and paved the way for his similar employment by a number of Viceroys" (Janus Archive Catalogue, Cambridge Univ.). - Very well preserved throughout in the original reddish-brown or purple, occasionally also slightly yellowish tone; virtually no signs of fading.

        Correspondance manuscrite d’un militaire en Afrique, le sous-lieutenant Pierre LEGRAND.

      - Environ 50 lettres manuscrites, 1887-1892. Lettres de Pierre Legrand, militaire au premier régiment des chasseurs d’Afrique et fils du général Frédéric Legrand (1810-1870), à sa mère et son amie Jeannette, restées en France, sur ses années au Mali et au Sénégal. Les lettres sont écrites de villes du Sénégal et du Mali, Saint-Louis, Bamako, Kayes, Bafoulabé, Kangaba au bord du fleuve Niger, puis, à partir de 1892, de Cotonou (Bénin). La région est un ancien comptoir portugais qui vient d’être cédé à la France en même temps que Porto-Novo. Il voyage en particulier sur le mythique paquebot Sénégal, lancé en 1870, qui effectuait les liaisons France-Sénégal dans les années 1880 avant d’être affecté à des traversées sur la zone Egypte-Syrie. Cette correspondance permet de suivre l’évolution du protectorat français sur une vaste région de l’Afrique de l’ouest, d’abord le Sénégal, puis le Mali – établissement du protectorat par le général Gallieni en 1880 - et enfin la région de Cotonou (actuel Bénin) à partir de 1883. Sous-lieutenant, il décrit, dans les différents campements, les difficiles conditions de vie, la chaleur (« te représenter ton fils à l’état de homard »), les problèmes d’approvisionnement, la puissance des fleuves à traverser, le mal qu’il a à supporter l’éloignement de sa famille. Il demande à sa mère de s’occuper de plusieurs tâches d’intendance pour lui et de fournir son vestiaire.On retrouve à l’occasion les préjugés raciaux habituels de l’époque : il compare la région à une « succursale de Charenton. On a recruté 150 nègres à qui on a donné un équipement plus ou moins grotesque, des petits chevaux, ils ont l’air de singes », « Voilà le protectorat de la France sur le Sénégal ».Il se montre critique du formalisme des gradés face à des populations qui ont des codes différents et à qui on ment : « Le Commandant préside, il parle, son interprète traduit les mensonges et les jocrisseries, les idioties qu’il débite ».Important ensemble de lettres pendant la colonisation en Afrique.Lettres au format A5, sur papier ordinaire. 1 télégramme conservé.On joint quelques documents coloniaux de la famille sur papier à en-tête, dont une lettre du colonel de Mentegue ( ?) au général Legrand datée de juillet 1870, une lettre d’Alger du général La Marlière à un député pour appuyer un changement d’affectation de Pierre Legrand en 1886 et une lettre du major Lassala (Alger, mai 1898), adressée à Pierre Legrand avec mention de son travail sous les ordres de son père, le général, en 1869.

        ENZO MANFREDINI. Raccolta di disegni preparatori per cartoline.

      Preziosa raccolta di 52 bellissimi disegni originali firmati del pittore Enzo Manfredini preparatori per cartoline + 5 disegni originali su carta + 20 cartoline a stampa di caricature sempre di Enzo Manfredini. ENZO MANFREDINI nacque a Modena il 30 giugno 1887 e perseguì gli studi classici; alla vigilia della laurea a Torino abbandonò l'idea della professione e si stabilì, dietro consiglio di Marinetti, a Parigi. Nel 1913 la capitale francese aveva un Atelier Manfredini aperto a "publicitè, dessins, affiches, illustrations", attivo e ricco di commissioni; gloria e quattrini gli fornivano i principali quotidiani e periodici francesi (Le Journal, Petit Parisien, Le Rire, Le Sourire, Pêle-Mêle e altri) che si disputavano i suoi disegni. Difficile oggi trovare le due raccolte che egli pubblicò fra il 1917 e il 1918, l'una edita da Andrea Salmon, l'altra da Andrea Vauxcelles. A Parigi dunque, che lo proclamò il più completo ed originale dei caricaturisti moderni e dove divenne amico di Amedeo Modigliani, si svolse quasi interamente la sua attività di illustratore. Quanto invece possiamo testimoniare è la grande rilevanza che la cultura e la critica francese, inglese e spagnola diedero alla sua attività caricaturale e la considerazione che per lui ebbero quale innovatore di stile.
