        [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.

His findings on these subjects were published as "The Industries of Japan" in 1889. "But as there can be no doubt that the nature of a country, the historical and social development of its inhabitants, and their relations to other nations, are the basis upon which the form and substance of its commercial and industrial, as well as its intellectual life are unfolded, it seemed advisable first to publish this present work." (From the preface). With the exception of the historical material included all of the information in the book is based on the author's own observations and researches during his time in Japan.

        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.

      xxv, 818 pp. 8vo.

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.

        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.
