An authoritative manual on chromolithography in 1885 (Colour and Colour Printing, by W. D. Richmond) asserts the need for at least nine separate stones to achieve such richness, but in fact the number of stones used was often more than twenty. ~ Provenance: From the library of C. P. Mulder, renowned collector and international heraldry authority, with his charming armorial bookplate,"Nil Desperandum", to first free endpaper. For a complete catalogue of Mulder's library, from which we offer a considerable number of items, see: C. P. Mulder: "Catalogue of Works on Orders, Decorations and Medals in the Library of C. P. Mulder" (Rotterdam, 1988). See also: C. P. Mulder & A. A. Purves: "Bibliography of Orders and Decorations" (Copenhagen, 1999).

        The Eruption of Krakatoa and Subsequent Phenomena.

      London; Harrison and Sons, 1888. - FIRST EDITION. Quarto. [2], xvi, 494 pp. Double-page chromolithograph frontispiece with tissue guard, taken from 6 crayon sketches made on November 26th 1883 by Mr W Ashcroft of Chelsea depicting the changing colour of the sky in London at sunset. 443 numbered plates of which 21 fold-out, plus figures in text. Original maroon cloth with gilt titles to spine and blind borders and decoration to boards. Primrose yellow endpapers. Spine and part of upper board heavily sunned. Bumped to upper corners with associated minor creasing to textblock; edges rubbed. Upper joints starting and two splits to lower joint, one approx 1-inch and the other very minor. A little scattered foxing and toning. Report of the Krakatoa Committee of the Royal Society, recording the many effects of the violet eruption which peaked on 27th August 1883, killing more than 36,000 people and destroying most of the island and its archipelago. Seismic activity was reported for several months in one of the most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. Subsequent temperatures fell, weather patterns remained unsettled for several years with abnormally high rainfall in America, high winds, acid rain and spectacular sunsets as depicted in the frontispiece. This was naturally of great interest to the Royal Society and a Committee was formed to study the phenomenon and record the many reports received by them - this comprehensive work is the fruit of their labour. Scarce, especially so in the original publishers cloth. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Nuevo Plano de Montevideo con el Trazado de los Boulevards

      A rare late 19th century chromolithograph city plan of Montevideo, Uruguay, published by Jaume Petit, showing French architect Norbert Maillart's proposed urban renewal plan for the city with Boulevard del Norte and Boulevard del Sud highlighted in red, centered around Montevideo Bay, depicting the city in great detail from the barrio of Atahualpa in the north down to modern-day Playa Ramirez in the south and from Barrio Castelar to Victoria, divided into 18 sections with each block numbered and locations throughout the city identified. Mounted upon original linen and folded. 8vo. folded, approx. 25-1/2 by 29 inches. Original green cloth portfolio cover. Some minor staining to covers and verso of linen not affecting map. Montevideo (Lit. Italo-Oriental for O. Basigaluz) n.d. (circa 1888). At the time of publication of this map, the developed portions of the city of Montevideo were limited to those areas enclosed by Boulevard General Artigas, although the map does depict some communities and farmland outside of the city. The Boulevards del Norte and del Sud were proposed by Maillart in the style of the great European-style boulevards such as the Champs-Elysees. Latin America was enamored with French culture at the end of the 19th century, and similar urban renovation projects were being undertaken in several other major cities including Mexico City and Buenos Aires. Montevideo was in the midst of an economic boom, but shortly thereafter a global economic collapse hit Uruguay, and particularly Montevideo, especially hard, and all plans for urban and civic development were halted. The Boulevard del Norte and Boulevard del Sud were never constructed, making this map a particularly rare example; as of November 2017, WorldCat does not show any listings for this title.

The diaries cover the periods of both marriages and the death of her first husband. Marguerite Lloyd (1873-1941) Marguerite Lloyd was born at Cincinnati, Ohio, 26 April 1873. She was the daughter of Major Harlan Page Lloyd (1838-1913) and Harriet Raymond (-1890). Marguerite's mother was the daughter of John H. Raymond, LL.D., who was one of the organizers, and a president, of Vassar College. Marguerite's father, Harlan, was born in Angelica, Allegheny County, New York. He graduated Hamilton College in 1856 and was admitted to the New York Bar at Albany in 1861. Harlan Page Lloyd began his military career as a private in the 24th New York Light Artillery on August 30, 1862. Military life suited him well and he rose up through the ranks to sergeant in November 1862, 1st sergeant in January 1863, and was discharged for a promotion to 1st lieutenant of the 22nd New York Cavalry in February 1864. With the 22nd, he fought hard with his men at Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, and earned his final promotion to captain in December 1864. While campaigning with Sheridan and acting as an aide to Custer during the Shenandoah Campaign, he was wounded in the lung. Determined to finish his service towards the end of the war, he continued to fight until he mustered out with his men at Winchester, Virginia on August 1, 1865. At one time he was promoted to major but there are no records of the promotion. After the war, Harlan Page Lloyd formed a legal practice in Cincinnati in partnership with Alphonso Taft, the father of President William Howard Taft. The firm was called Taft & Lloyd. In January 1883 the future President William Howard Taft became a partner with Marguerite's father under the firm name of Lloyd & Taft. Lloyd was the only law partner that the future president ever had. The firm lasted for several years, breaking up in March of 1887 when Taft was appointed by Ohio Governor Joseph B. Foraker to the position of judge of the Superior Court of Cincinnati.Major Lloyd married Marguerite's mother in Poughkeepsie, New York in June 1869. Together Major Lloyd and his wife had at least two children: Raymond and Marguerite Lloyd.Marguerite is found living on Southern Avenue in Cincinnati in the 1880 Census, which matches the inscription inside her 1889 Diary. Besides her parents and her brother Raymond, the family also had two live in servants. The diary for 1888 contains entries showing that Marguerite attended the Ogontz School for Young Ladies, an elite and prestigious school in Philadelphia that operated for a century, from 1850-1950. Marguerite Lloyd became engaged to broker Howard Robinson Benedict of New York City in March 1896. The couple was to be married in November of the same year. However, on July 1st Benedict contracted pneumonia and about July 18th he came down with peritonitis and blood poisoning. Knowing he would not live long, he asked Marguerite to marry him immediately on his death bed, which she did. They married at 10:30 A.M. on July 21st and by 6:20 P.M. he was dead. Benedict lived in New York City at 14 East Seventeenth Street. The couple was married in the presence of Benedict's brother, James H. Benedict, Jr., and Benedict's sister-in-law, Mrs. LeGrand L. Benedict. His burial was put off until his parents could return from Europe.Howard Benedict was the son of James H. Benedict, whose brother, the banker and yachtsman Elias Cornelius Benedict (1834-1920), was a good friend of President Grover Cleveland (1837-1908). It was on E.C. Benedict's yacht, the Oneida, that Cleveland had his secret surgery to remove a cancerous growth from his jaw in 1893. One of E.C. Benedict's sons, Frederick Hart Benedict, married the daughter of Standard Oil founder and Florida developer Henry Morrison Flagler (1830-1913). James H. Benedict and his brother E.C. were in business together for many years. In 1888, Howard R. Benedict formed a broker's partnership with his brother James, Jr., and they went into business at 48 Exchange Place. LeGrand was admitted to the firm in 1893.Marguerite married a second time on 18 October 1899 to Rufus B. Cowing, Jr. Cowing was born 12 December 1869, in New York City. He was an attorney. The couple is later found living in Glen Ridge, New Jersey in the 1910 Social Register. She and her husband were still living there in the 1930 Census. Cowing's father, of the same name, was a Judge of the Sessions Court in New York. Marguerite and Rufus had at least two children together: Dorothy Benedict Cowing born on 7 August 1900 and Rufus Balch Cowing, born about 1903. Marguerite Lloyd Cowing died in 1941. She was buried in Rosedale Cemetery, in Orange, Essex County, New Jersey. Description of the Diaries: The 1888 diary contains entries dated September to December, when she was attending the prestigious women's school in Philadelphia the "Ogontz School for Young Ladies." The entries mention some of the early teachers and principals of the school, such as Harriett A. Dillaye, Frances E. Bennett, and Sylvia Eastman. Marguerite discusses her classmates, their activities, the lectures (topics and the speakers) they attend, visits to Philadelphia to go shopping, or walks over to Shoemaker Town (in Cheltenham Township near Ogontz) just outside of Philadelphia, where they go to buy fruit. In 1889, Marguerite was still attending the Ogontz School and after Christmas break (1888) she takes a train back to Philadelphia from Cincinnati to begin school again. She finishes the spring semester, goes home to visit family during the summer and returns to Ogontz in the fall for school. The 1890 diary begins in January when she returns to school at Ogontz, she remains at school until April when she is called home due to her mother's illness. Her mother never recovered and died on April 30th. After the funeral, Marguerite stays in Cincinnati until late May when she returns to Ogontz to pack her things, and return home to Cincinnati to be with her father. She and her father, take a train to New York City, stopping at various places to visit family and friends, finally arriving at New York City where they take a steamer to Liverpool, England and vacation in Europe for an extended stay, visiting England, Scotland, Holland, Germany, France, Italy, Luxemburg, before heading back to England, and then home to Cincinnati in the fall. Marguerite apparently does not return to school at Ogontz, she stays at home and helps care for her father, who is now alone. Raymond, her brother was attending Yale University, which is where the 1890 diary ends. Rather than attend school; she takes some private lessons in music, French, and studies English literature on her own. The next diary is for the year 1892. In the summer she makes a trip east to New York, then later in November, Marguerite goes to Europe again, this time staying in Germany for an extended period, where she studies piano and voice in Dresden. Much of the diary, before her travels to Europe, is taken up with everyday activities in Cincinnati, spending time with friends, family, taking lessons, etc. The 1894 diary finds her traveling to New York, and then up to New Haven, to visit her brother who apparently appears was still studying at Yale. She joins her father in New York, who was already east on business. The entries reveal much about her life in Cincinnati, her friends, family, studying French, music, lectures, etc. She also makes another trip to Europe, returning to Germany in the early summer, and remains from late June to October in Europe (also visited England again). She traveled with her father and a woman she calls "mother," although her biological mother died in 1890. This was perhaps a grandmother, or second wife of her father? Not clear. In April of 1894 her diary notes for the first time a "Mr. Benedict, a young lawyer"who later became Marguerite's first husband. Marguerite's 1895 diary begins to mention Howard R. Benedict, her future 1st husband, more often as they begin to spend more time together when she is in New York. Marguerite traveled there at least once a year, sometimes more. She goes east again in February to New York City and the Philadelphia areas. She made another trip in the summer to upstate New York and New York City, both times spending more time with Benedict. There are many entries on her everyday activities while at home and while traveling The 1896 diary begins with Marguerite and Benedict spending New Year's Day together. In the spring she makes a trip to Baltimore to visit a friend and to Washington, visit her aunt and uncle. Marguerite marries Howard R. Benedict on his deathbed in July. Marguerite receives a diamond engagement ring from Benedict in January and the plan was to marry in November, but when Benedict became ill in early July and his doctors told him he would not live, he sent for Marguerite, who was still in Washington, and they were married on the morning of July 21st. Benedict died later that evening. Marguerite fell into a depression, speaking of feeling "blue" several times. She remained in New York with the Benedict family and also spends time with her aunt and uncle in Washington. She returned to Cincinnati at the end of the year for the holidays. There are no diaries for 1897 and 1898, but there is one for 1899. Approximately three years after her husband's untimely death, in January 1899 Rufus B. Cowing's name is first mentioned. Rufus and Marguerite strike up a relationship and in October they marry. An entry in November states it was the couple's anniversary, so perhaps they likely met in November of 1898. There is much in the diary concerning her daily life, as a newly married couple, something she never experienced in her first marriage. She remains in the New York area, and eventually the couple moved to Glen Ridge New Jersey. The 1900 diary notes the birth of Marguerite's daughter Dorothy Benedict Cowing, born on 7 August 1900 at 5:15 p.m. The diary entries describe her life as a newlywed and a new mother. The 1901 diary continues regularly until about September and from September to December there are not many entries. Marguerite is now married and the mother of a daughter. Overall, the entries in Marguerite's ten diaries provide insight into the life a woman born into a wealthy and prominent family, one which allowed her to study and travel abroad. Her life was freed from the type of cares and menial labors of most women of her time, there was no housekeeping or chores to do, her family had servants to take care of those matters. She was a woman with an intellectual curiosity, who studied languages, literature, and music, and was prominent in the social circles of Cincinnati, with an extensive circle of family and friends in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.
