        [Photo Album]: Victorian Photography of the Maryland Area

      Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia. 1888. Two volumes. Oblong small quartos measuring 7" x 10.5". Both albums are half leather and brown cloth with "album of photographs" stamped in gilt on each of the front boards. Contains 73 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5" x 4.5" and 4.5" x 7" with captions. Good only with worn edges and waviness with some spotting on the second album with near fine photographs.Two photo albums kept by Oakland, Maryland native Edward S. Buckley, Jr. between 1887 and 1889. The albums detail his family and their home with images depicting the family representing four generations posed on the porch of their cottage as well as places they visited outside of Maryland. One photo shows the view "from the back porch of Oakland Cottage in September of 1888" which features a little patch of crops growing in the yard and an expanse of land beyond it. There are also portraits taken of family and friends posed around the cottage throughout the album which imply Buckley was an amateur photographer and enthusiast. One such photo shows a woman in a corseted dark dress standing on the porch of the cottage looking demurely at the camera, another shows a man in a suit with a hat and cane looking off into the distance. The natural beauty of the area is seen through the photos including one of the Youghiogheny River as seen from "County Bridge, Oakland." They also visited Eagle Rock and were photographed on the rock in fashionable hats and clothes. Fort Pendleton in Maryland is also photographed with images of the hills and trees of the area. Buckley traveled into Pennsylvania and West Virginia as well and photographed Semple's Hill in Aurora, West Virginia and a farm in town. Besides hiking, the family indulged in leisure activities which involved garden parties and musical entertainment. One photo shows the family in a parlor with a man playing banjo and another shows a woman outside playing a guitar. The second album, titled "In Memoriam," primarily focuses on the houses that they stayed and lived in including Mount Stony, a large home in the White Marsh Valley. These photos show the exterior of the estates as well as images of the interior depicting the parlors, dining areas, and bedrooms.A wonderful collection of relatively early amateur photography of Maryland and its surrounding states with a focus on nature and stately homes. .

Small 8vo (14.5 x 8.5 cm). Title-page printed in red and black. Later marbled wrappers.

      Ferchl, p. 224; KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Brüning 1331; Ferguson, Some early treatises on technological chemistry (1888), pp. 24-34 . Second copy located of the 1660 edition of a popular and influential practical manual by Andreas Helmreich, on the preparation of black, coloured and metallic writing ink and dyes (the metallic inks especially for writing on wood), the etching of marble and metals (copper, brass, tin, iron and steel, with special reference to etching armour and weapons), gilding and silvering (including the gilding of the edges of books), colouring parchment, paper and feathers, making sealing wax and glue, and other materials used for art and writing, including recipes and minute details of the preparation of the materials. Books of a similar nature with the title Kunstbüchlein appeared already in 1499 and reappeared in a new form by 1535, but Ferguson notes that Helmriech's work owes little or nothing to them, has only two or three recipes similar to those in Boltz's 1547 Illuminirbuch and is largely original. All editions are rare and we have located only one other copy of the present 1660 edition, in the library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.With some minor restorations to the gutter margins of the title-page and with several small stains, and the whole somewhat dog-eared, very slightly browned and with occasional foxing and a marginal chip at the head of the dedication (perhaps removing an owner's name?), but the book is complete including even the 2 final blank leaves, and nearly all the leaves are in good condition. A rare and important work, giving a detailed account of the preparation of inks and of etching, as practiced in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Original brown diagonal-ribbed cloth, titles to spine gilt, Emin Pasha's khedival tughra and name in Arabic gilt to front board, brown coated endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece with tissue guard, one similar plate, folding colour map to rear. From the celebrated library of the Fermor-Hesketh baronets with their Easton Neston library shelfmark label to the front pastedown. Very light rubbing to extremities, faint marking to front board, the lower outer corner bumped, folding tear to map stub, the image unaffected, a few gatherings roughly opened along the top edge, but otherwise a largely unopened copy in excellent condition. First edition in English, others copies noted in plain cloth lacking gilt decoration. Appointed Ottoman governor of Equatoria in 1878, the German-born scientist Eduard Schnitzer, known as Emin Pasha, was largely unknown in Europe outside specialist circles in Europe until 1886, when Scottish explorer Robert Felkin (author of the introduction to the present volume) received and published a selection of correspondence confirming that he still held the beleaguered province and requesting help. He had been stranded in the region since the Mahdist revolt in 1881, though was still able to sent letters to Zanzibar via Buganda, and his cause aroused considerable sentiment in Britain owing to the recent death of General Charles Gordon, leading to the formation of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition (1887-9) under the command of Henry M. Stanley. At the time of publication Emin Pasha had yet to be "rescued" by Stanley so had "no idea that these letters are being published in their present form" (Introduction). First published earlier the same year, in German, as Emin-Pascha, eine Sammlung von Reisebriefen und Berichten Dr. Emin-Pascha's.

        Étude clinique sur la fièvre du goitre exophtalmique et comparativement sur les fièvres spéciales a quelques autres névroses

      Paris, Ballière et fils, 1888, in-8, 127 pages, broché, couverture imprimée, Première édition de cette thèse sur le goitre exophtalmique, parue la même année que l'édition de Lyon, chez J. Gallet. Le goitre exophtalmique se caractérise par la présence d'un goitre proéminent ainsi que d'une saillie des yeux. Ce sont, par ailleurs, les symptômes de la maladie de Basedow. La médecine clinique décrit cette triade symptomatique à partir des années 1830 : le goitre, l'exophtalmie et les palpitations. Vingt ans plus tard, le développement de la chirurgie thyroïdienne transforme le goitre exophtalmique en une maladie spécifique à la glande thyroïde. Plusieurs médecins, dont Graves, Basedow ainsi que Charcot, étudièrent ce phénomène thyroïdien. Henry Bertoye, ex-interne des hôpitaux de Lyon, fut l'élève de Joseph Renaut. Exemplaire non coupé. Envoi signé de l'auteur à l'attention du docteur Carrier sur la page de faux titre. Cachet ex-libris du docteur Carrier sur le plat supérieur et la page de titre.

        Four Page Autograph Letter Signed, written to Michael Anagnos when Keller was Seven Years Old

      - Four page Autograph Letter Signed ("Helen A. Keller"). Four leaves, each approximately 7" x 9" painstakingly lettered in pencil on rectos only. Old folds from mailing, a couple of folds have been lightly and professionally strengthened on the versos.One of the earliest letters written by Keller, when she was just seven years old, sent from her Tuscumbia, Alabama home to Michael Anagnos, the Director of the Perkins Institute for the Blind. Anagnos had sent Anne Sullivan to Tuscumbia to teach Keller how to speak, read, and write. It was only the previous summer that Anne Sullivan had arrived at the Keller home to begin working with the young deaf and blind girl. Within a few months of working with Sullivan, Helen's vocabulary had increased to hundreds of words and simple sentences. Sullivan taught Helen how to read Braille and raised type, and to print block letters.This letter, dated "May 3rd, [1888]" is published in full in Keller's autobiography *The Story of My Life* (p.154-155), which features a selection of her letters written between 1887 and 1901. Later in the same month that she wrote this letter, Keller left for Boston to study at Perkins, where she would stay until 1894. The earliest of Keller's letters are mere sentence-long fragments. This is the eleventh letter (including fragments) published in *The Story of My Life*, and the third that she wrote to Anagnos. As the text of her autobiography displays, it is one of the first fully realized letters that she had written. The full text of the letter, in large block print, as follows:Tuscumbia, Ala. May 3d.Dear Mr. Anagnos,I am glad to write to you this morning because I love you very much. I was very happy to receive pretty book and nice candy and two letters from you. I will come to see you soon and I will ask you many questions about countries and you will love good child.Mother is making me pretty new dresses to wear in Boston and I will look lovely to see little girls and boys and you.Friday teacher and I went to a picnic with little children. We played games and ate dinner under the trees and we found ferns and wild flowers. I walked in the woods and learned names for many trees. There are poplar and cedar and pine and oak and ash and hickory and maple trees. They make a pleasent shade and the little birds love to sing sweetly up in the tree. Rabbits hop and squirrels run and ugly snakes do crawl in the woods. Geraniums and roses jasmines and japonicas are cultivated flowers. I help mother and teacher water them every night before supper. Cousin Arthur made me a swing in the ash tree. Aunt Ev. has gone to Memphis. Uncle Frank is here. He is picking strawberries for dinner.Nancy [inserted here in another hand are the words "a doll"] is sick again. New teeth do make her ill. Adeline is well and she can go to Cincinnati Monday with me.Aunt Ev. will send me a boy doll. Harry will be Nancy's and Adeline's brother.Wee sister is a good girl. I am tired now and I do want to go down-stairs. I send many kisses and hugs with letter.Your darling child,Helen A. KellerA truly remarkable letter from the seven year old Keller who served and still serves as an inspiration for generations of Americans. Keller's papers, including most of her early letters, are held in the Archives of the Perkins School. This is a rare exception. The only Keller letter of this vintage or earlier of which we are aware in the marketplace, is a considerably shorter letter sent to Alexander Graham Bell in November, 1887 (also published in *My Life*), which sold at Christie's for $41,125 in 2001.

        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.

        Eighd. Signatur auf s/w Cabinettphotographie. [Hochformat, ca. 16,5 x 11,2 cm].

      Mit dem Prägestempel "Proprieta Riservata". - Rückw. Bleistift-Notiz ("Die herrliche Duse"), Gbrsp., eine Ecke bestossen. - M. Guigoni & E. Bossi leiteten ein Portätstudio am Corso Victor Emanuele 13, welche sich auf Kinderporträts, Persönlichkeiten der Musikszene und Politiker spezialisiert hatte. Sie kaufen das Fotostudio von Icilio Calzolari 1888 für 30.000 Lire, und produzierten Cartes des Visites, Cabinettphotographien und Silberabzüge. International bekannte Schauspieler, Sänger, und Komponisten, die nach Mailand kamen, um an der Scala und anderen Theatern aufzutreten, liessen sich in dem Studio ablichten: so auch Giacomo Puccini, Nellie Melba, Joseph Joachim, Eleonore Duse und Pietro Mascagni. Sie waren bis in die zwanziger Jahre des 20. Jahrhunderts tätig. (Zitat) - Duse, (1858 - 1924), war als "Die Duse" neben Sarah Bernhardt und Mrs. Patrick Campbell eine der großen Theaterschauspielerinnen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Ihr Spiel war subtil und wenig theatralisch und gilt als wegweisend für das Moderne Theater... Gegen Ende 1883 bot der sizilianische Schriftsteller Giovanni Verga Cesare Rossi die Inszenierung des Volksstücks "Cavalleria rusticana" an Vergas Novelle diente später als Vorlage für Pietro Mascagnis gleichnamige Oper "Cavalleria rusticana" (1890). Im Gegensatz zum konservativen Rossi begeisterte sich die progressive Eleonora Duse sofort dafür und übernahm spontan die Rolle des Bauernmädchens Santuzza. Die Uraufführung am 14. Januar 1884 in Turin wurde ein großer Erfolg für das Schauspielerensemble und die Duse. Am 11. Mai 1884 gastierte die Gruppe in Mailand... Wegen ihres großen Könnens wurde Eleonora Duse, so wie ihr nachfolgend weitere große Darstellerinnen wie zum Beispiel die Garbo, bereits zu Lebzeiten überschwänglich die Göttliche genannt. George Bernard Shaw, selbst Theaterkritiker, stellte sie, nachdem er ihre Interpretation der Kameliendame gesehen hatte, sogar über ihre Rivalin Sarah Bernhardt. Sie wurde von zahlreichen Malern, unter anderen auch Franz von Lenbach und John Singer Sargent, verewigt und von Schriftstellern wie Rainer Maria Rilke, dem sie 1912 in Venedig begegnete, und dessen Freund Hugo von Hofmannsthal verehrt. Als erster Frau widmete ihr das Time Magazine am 30. Juli 1923 zur Vorankündigung ihrer Amerikatournee eine Titelgeschichte. (Zitat)

        Art and Artists of Our Time (6 Volume set)

      Selmar Hess, New York; (1888) - Small Folio. In six volumes. Originally produced in parts, then produced in a small 3 volume edition. Clarence Cook was not only the first but also the foremost art critic of the last part of the 19th Century. While Europeans were disdainful of American art, he was able to show how Whistler and Gardiner were the equals of the best of Europe's artists. He founded a Pre-Raphaelite organization and led in the "Truth in Art" movement. Besides 188 full page engravings, there are hundreds of smaller ones which provide the reader with the best contemporary account of the contemporary art movement in the late 19th Century and providing for the first time examples of why America's finest artists were the equal to any others on the world stage. Rarely found complete in the six volume set. Bound in publisher's brown cloth decorated in black, lettered gilt, spines black and gilt, silk like endpapers, all edges gilt, volume one with a bit of rubbed white paint(most likely from being against a white painted shelf wall). All volumes in beautiful condition with light spots of wear, chipping to head of volume five. Very nice.

        Photographic portrait of the young Annette Kellerman, Marrickville, 1888.

      Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format (mount 103 x 65 mm); verso with contemporary inscription in ink 'Annette M. Kellerman, Marrickville 1888'; no photographer's imprint; the albumen print is lightly rubbed, with scattered mottling in the negative; the gilt-edged mount has been trimmed along the bottom edge. A hitherto unknown family photograph of the young Annette Kellerman (1886-1975), swimmer, aquatic performer, film star, and icon of Australian womanhood. Annette Marie Sarah Kellerman was born in Marrickville, Sydney, on 6 July 1886. This clearly identified studio portrait was probably taken in late 1888, when Annette was about two and a half years old. She is posed - a little stiltedly - reclining, one leg tucked underneath the other, on a low chair covered with a fur rug. Because of a weakness in her legs caused by rickets, Annette would soon have to wear painful steel braces. She would learn to swim, at the age of 6, in order to strengthen her legs, but would go on to become one of the most famous endurance swimmers - and highest paid entertainers - in the world. From 1907 she enjoyed a spectacularly successful career in the USA, both in vaudeville and on the silver screen, as the self-dubbed 'Australian Mermaid' and 'Diving Venus'. She is regarded as the first woman to appear nude in a Hollywood film (Daughter of the Gods, 1916). In addition to her performances, it was her popularising of the one-piece bathing costume for women - somewhat scandalous attire in its day - as well as her outspoken advocacy for physical fitness, which helped ensure that she became one of the most infamous and instantly recognisable women of her time. In recent years Kellerman has been the subject of two major Australian exhibitions. In 2011 the National Portrait Gallery staged an exhibition on her life and career, Indecent Exposure. In 2016 the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (Sydney), which now houses most of the Annette Kellerman Collection - the performer's own memorabilia - staged the exhibition Million Dollar Mermaid: Annette Kellerman. Photographic and other paper material from the Kellerman Collection now resides in the State Library of New South Wales.

        November Boughs [Presentation Copy]

      Philadelphia: David McKay, Publisher, 23 South Ninth Street, 1888 [but 1891]. First Edition. Cloth. Fine. Tall, thin 8vo: 140,[2]pp, with portrait in the text but no frontispiece photograph inserted (as issued). Original dark green V cloth, beveled covers, spine titled in gilt, upper cover stamped in gilt with tile and Whitman's facsimile autograph, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, wove end papers, laid front fly leaf. "These sheets are probably the 400 copies printed in May, 1891. . . . It seems probable . . . that after Whitman's death his executors had these sheets and the remainder of Good-Bye My Fancy [a copy of which we also have on offer] bound in uniform, but separate, bindings." (BAL 21430, printing 3). With occasional underlining and marginal commentary in pencil on first 18 leaves. Book plate of Virginia bibliophile Christopher Clark Geest to front paste down. Inscribed on front fly leaf to Courtney Lemon (his stamp in blue ink to title page) in 1902 by Whitman executor Horace Traubel: "To / Courtney Lemon / with heartfelt / remembrances & with / peaceful joy from Horace Traubel," with note in Traubel's hand beneath inscription, "W. W. assisted with g[reen] binding of N. Boughs for distribution among his friends. It was never printed for the market." A superb survival with fine association, square and tight, cloth clean with bright gilt, pages fresh and unmarked. Myerson A12.I.c. "One of the most remarkable things about Whitman is that as his health deteriorated, he increased his publishing activity. Part of the reason was his new circle of friends in Camden and Philadelphia . . . most importantly, Horace Traubel, trained as a typesetter and an active publisher and printer his whole life. He became Whitman's close friend and disciple when he was a teenager, and, as he grew up, he became Whitman's emissary to the Philadelphia/Camden printing and publishing community. . . . During the last four years of Whitman's life, from March 1888 to Whitman's death in March 1892, he recorded his daily conversations with Whitman (now published in nine volumes of well over 5000 pages), among which are detailed publication histories of Whitman's last books. The first book we have this record for is November Boughs, Whitman's attempt once again to merge poetry and prose in one book . . . [W]hen Traubel asked him when he was going to bring it out, Whitman's response was telling: "it will come out, and before long, God willing, and you, Horace Traubel, willing: for I shall need you to help me through with this expedition. . . ." Traubel would now be his lifeline to ongoing publishing activity, and it turned out he was more than up to the task. The book contains 64 poems and a lot of prose, including "A Backward Glance O'er Travel'd Roads" and an essay on Elias Hicks. The poems are striking reflections on old age, and everything about this book . . . suggests a kind of November of the soul, the self heading into winter and death. Whitman worried about the binding of the book, ordering Traubel to make changes in the lettering when he saw the first sample. . . . For the third printing, bound after the poet's death, his executors moved to a deep green cloth . . . " (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman) N. B.

        [PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM] Australie. Ph. François 1888

      Nineteenth century photograph album, oblong folio (270 x 380 mm), original half dark green morocco over green pebbled cloth, the upper board lettered in gilt Australie. Ph. François 1888 and both boards with double gilt rule, spine with raised bands and gilt ornament, marbled endpapers, with [51] albumen print photographs by various Australian commercial photographers of the 1880s, nearly all in format 210 x 160 mm (a few smaller), mounted recto and verso of [24] album leaves of thick card, many with contemporary pencilled captions in French beneath the image, the majority of the remainder with inscriptions in the negative, including 12 individual and group portraits of Australian Aborigines by Nicholas Caire, Charles Bayliss and Charles Kerry, views of mines in Ballarat and Bendigo and scenes of wool transports on the Murray River; all of the photographs are in fine condition, and are strong prints with rich tonal range; the album leaves are free from foxing; housed in the original green pebbled cloth slipcase. An important album compiled by a distinguished French scientist. The French naturalist Philippe François visited Victoria and New South Wales during 1888 on his way to New Caledonia and the New Hebrides, where he was to carry out research into coral reefs in the region. He returned to Paris in 1891, but was to make a second voyage to complete his study in 1893-5. From these expeditions François brought back to France important collections of natural history specimens and ethnographic artefacts. He bequeathed the majority of these to French public collections: the natural history specimens to the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle; a collection of skulls from Malekula to the Sorbonne; and ethnographic objects to the Musée ethnographique du Trocadéro(these now reside in the collection of the Musée du quai Branly, along with other photographs collected byFrançois). In 2002, the Paris auction house Tajan sold a group of ethnographic artefacts collected byFrançois in New Caledonia and the New Hebrides, which had remained in the possession of his family. The subjects of the photographs in this album are as follows: Melbourne (5); Ballarat (5); Bendigo (1); Fernshaw (3); Aboriginal man at Lake Tyers by Caire; Aborigines at Maloga Mission on the Murray River by Caire (5); scenes along the Murray River (8); Sydney (17); New South Wales Aborigines by Bayliss (4); Port Darwin Aborigine by Kerry; Barron River Aborigine by Kerry (the image on which indigenous artist Brook Andrew's 1996 work, Sexy and dangerous, is based).
