        Columbian Emerald] Chlorostilbon Angustipennis

      by the Author, [London 1887 - Hand-coloured lithograph by H.C. Richter, printed by Hullmandel & Walton. Heightened with gum arabic. Wove paper. Very good condition. A beautiful image, heightened with gold iridescence, from 'A Monograph of the Trochilidae or Family of Humming-Birds', John Gould's 'masterpiece, [which]. must ever remain a feast of beauty and a source of wonder. an incomparable catalogue and compendium of beauty' ('Fine Bird Books'). 'There is no one appreciative of the beauties of nature who will not recall. with delight the time when a live humming-bird first met his gaze. The suddenness of the apparition, even when expected, and its brief duration, are alone enough to fix the fluttering vision on the mind's eye. The beautiful nests of humming-birds. will be found on examination to be very solidly and tenaciously built, though the materials are generally of the slightest - cotton-wool or some vegetable down and spider's webs' (Alfred Newton in ' The Encyclopedia Britannica 1911, vol. 13, p.887). The Hummingbird family includes members that are the smallest birds in the world. The largest measures no more than 8 1/2 inches and the smallest 2 3/8 inches in length. They are confined to the American continent and its islands, but are wide ranging within this limitation, with over 400 different species covering an area from the fuchias of Tierra del Fuego in the south to the althaea bushes of Toronto gardens in the north. The present image is from the work of which Gould himself was most proud. Hummingbirds remained a fascination for him throughout his professional life, as evidenced by his collection of 1500 mounted specimens, which were exhibited in the Royal Zoological Gardens in Regent's Park, London, in 1851 as part of the festivities surrounding the Great Exhibition. The exhibit proved a great success, with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert numbering among the 75,000 visitors. Cf. Anker 177; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p.101; cf. Nissen IVB 380; cf. Sauer 16 & 29; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 258.

        Untersuchungen ueber die Ausbreitung der elektrischen Kraft.

      8. Mit 40 Figuren im Text. VI S., 1 Bl., 295 (1) S., HLdr. d. Zt. m. etw. Rückenverg., goldgepr. Rückentitel u. dreiseitig marmor. Schnitt. Erstausgabe. - 1887, acht Jahre nach Maxwells Tod, wurde von Hertz der experimentelle Nachweis für die Faraday-Maxwellsche Hypothese, daß elektrische Wellen durch den Raum gesendet werden können, in Angriff genommen. Die zwei Haupterfordernisse hierfür waren (a) unter der Annahme, daß solche Wellen existierten, eine Methode, mit der sie erzeugt werden konnten, und (b) eine Methode, sie festzustellen, wenn sie einmal erzeugt waren. Das erste Problem konnte Hertz leicht lösen. Er benutzte dazu die oszillatorische Entladung eines Kondensators. Das Empfangsproblem war viel schwieriger, weil man damals Ströme, deren Stärke sich mit solch hoher Geschwindigkeit änderte wie bei diesen Wellen, nicht registrieren konnte. Hertz benutzte dazu eine Erscheinung, die so alt war wie die Elektrizität selbst: den elektrischen Funken. Indem er die elektrischen Wellen einen Funken in einer Entfernung erzeugen ließ, die zwischen Oszillator und Funkensprung jede Verbindung ausschloß, und indem er den funkenerzeugenden Apparat (Oszillator) so bewegte, daß sich die Länge des Funkens veränderte, bewies er eindeutig den Durchgang von elektrischen Wellen durch den Raum [...] J. J. Thomson hielt die Ergebnisse für einen der wunderbarsten Triumphe experimenteller Geschicklichkeit [...] (Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 678f.). - Einband etw. berieben, sonst schönes Exemplar. - PMM 377 Borst 3947 Honeyman 1668 Sparrow, Milestones of Science 101 Neufforge 533.

      Braunschweig: Schwetschte Und Sohn. 1887. First Edition. Cloth. 8vo; aprox 400 pages; First edition. Original boards. 8vo. Geiger (1848-1919), was a German literary historian and a "fervent adherent of assimilation. Son of Abraham Geiger, he studied at his father's Hochschule in Berlin and concluded his academic studies with a dissertation, presented to Leopold yon Ranke, on the attitude of Greek and Roman authors to Judaism and Jews. In 1880 he was appointed professor of German literature and cultural history at Berlin University. Geiger was a versatile scholar, editor, and translator. His major contributions were to Renaissance, Humanism, and Reformation studies, German-Jewish history, and research on Goethe. Even when treating the first and last subjects he remained particularly conscious of the Jewish aspect.Â… Founder and editor of Zeitschrift fuer die Geschichte der Juden in Deutschland (1887-92), he also wrote Geschichte der Juden in Berlin (2 vols., 1871), Die deutsche Literatur und die Juden (1910), and numerous articles on German Jewish history.Â… he also wrote on Goethe's relationship to Jews and Judaism. Geiger edited his father's Nachgelassene Schriften (5 vols., 1875-78) and other works; he also wrote a biography of his father, Abraham Geiger, Leben und Lebenswerk (with others, 1910).Geiger was a vigorous exponent of liberalism and Reform Judaism and an opponent of political Zionism. In 1911, in his birthday letter to the kaiser, he courageously protested against the social discrimination to which German Jews were subjected. From 1909 he edited the leading Jewish newspaper, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums. His unpublished works include a projected edition of the correspondence of Leopold Zunz" (Rudolf Kayser in EJ).

        Fine Photograph of "Sapphire Pool Biscuit Basin".

      [1887]. 1887 - Fine albumen print, mounted on archival matt (5 x8 inches; 11 x 14 inches), of the Sapphire Pool Biscuit Basin, number 23 pencilled lower left-hand corner of the matt. Provenance: from the library of William E. Hofman, his sale Christie's 3rd December, 2010, lot 343 A magnificent view of the crater of celebrated Sapphire Pool Biscuit Basin in Yellowstone National Park, by official Yellowstone Park photographer Frank Jay Haynes. "Excelsior was once the largest geyser In the world. However, the last known major eruptions occurred during the 1880s, when there were numerous eruptions up to 300 feet. The violent eruptions of the 1880s may have caused damage to the siliceous sinter lining, allowing gas leakage and the loss of thermal energy. No observed eruptions were known until 1985 when it erupted for two days. However, it only obtained a height of 20-80 feet. Since its eruptive activity in the 1880s, Excelsior is now a productive thermal spring, presently discharging 4050 gallons per minute. Numerous vents boil and churn the water within the crater, covering it in a dense layer of steam." (Yellowstone National Park online). Yellowstone, was the world's first national park, and "is situated mainly in Wyoming and extends into Montana and Idaho. It was established in 1872 by Congress, primarily because of its geysers, but also because of its remarkable assemblage of wildlife and unusual natural features. The "national park idea" pioneered at Yellowstone eventually spread worldwide. In the United States, Mackinac Island National Park (now a Michigan state park) was established in 1875 and Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks in 1890. (Yosemite had been a California state park since 1864.) Yellowstone remains the "mother park" in the U.S. national park system, which by the 1990s included 376 sites. The celebrated photographer Haynes was first hired as the official photographer of the Northern Pacific Railroad and "given his own travelling studio in a converted rail car, Haynesproduced numerous famous images of the railroad's construction projects and of sites along its route. He held that position for nearly three decades. He also was appointed in 1884 as Yellowston's official photographer and sold materials from a store in the park itself. He retired in 1916. His images of Yellowstone are among his more important and dramatic imagery" (see Dorothy Sloan, Western Americana,10/18/2006, lot 254). "Boasting about three-quarters of the world's geysers (of which Old Faithful is the most famous) and over half of the thermal features, it also has one of the globe's most spectacular canyons, one of North America's most celebrated waterfalls, and more than 225 permanent waterfalls higher than fifteen feet. It has the premier wildlife sanctuary (and the top three trout-fishing streams) in the continental United States. Unmatched in the variety and number of its megafauna, the park shelters the world's largest concentration of elk and is one of the last remaining strongholds of the grizzly bear in the coterminous states. It is the only site in the United States (and one of only two in the world) where a wild bison herd has survived continuously since ancient times. At the center of the largest relatively intact ecosystem in the North Temperate Zone, its hundreds of lakes, creeks, mountains, and valleys survive in essentially pristine condition. As in all major parks, Yellowstone's administrators debate the appropriate forms of intervention to protect this delicate ecosystem and strive to balance the competing claims of public access and wilderness preservation" (see Aubrey L. Haines, The Yellowstone Story, 1996; James Pritchard, Preserving Yellowstone's Natural Conditions: Science and the Perception of Nature, 1999).

        Neun Blatt unveröffentlichte Kaltnadelradierungen zu Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra: "Don Quijote".

      (Vier Blätter im weißen Rand etwas fleckig, wenige kleine Randeinrisse, insgesamt recht gut und klare Abdrucke. Selten.) Jedes Blatt unter dem Bild links in Bleistift als Vordruck bzw. Probedruck bezeichnet und numeriert sowie rechts signiert. Mit dem großen Portrait von Sancho Pansa und dem für die Folge vorgesehen Titel, der den Ritter auf einer Denkmalsäule zeigt, sowie zahlreichen bewegten Darstellungen aus dem Roman."Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste.Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der Wolfsschanze entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist. Das Werk stellt den Diktator jenseits der offiziellen Propaganda apathisch und zusammengesunken mit leerem Blick dar. (...) Zu seinen Schülern zählte unter anderen Rudi Lesser." (vgl.
