        Journal of H.M.S. Enterprise,

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, Limited,, 1889. on the expedition in search of Sir John Franklin's ships by Behring Strait. 1850-55. Edited by his brother, Major-General T. B. Collinson (Royal Engineers). Octavo. Original blue-grey pebble-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt stamp of a lookout in the crow's nest on front cover, patterned endpapers. Chromolithograph frontispiece of HMS Enterprise in the ice, 6 folding coloured maps, photogravure portrait of Collinson. A couple of slight scratches to front cover, old splash stain on spine (almost imperceptible), touch of foxing to fore-edge and internally. A very good bright copy. First edition of one of the most important works in the literature of the Arctic; this copy in a variant binding that differs from that in dark blue cloth having the front cover gilt-blocked with a lookout in a crow's nest rather than crossed banners lettered "Enterprise for Franklin" (ours matching the Brooke-Hitching copy). "In 1849 Collinson was appointed to command an expedition for the relief of Sir John Franklin, by way of the Bering Strait; he himself had command of the Enterprise, and with him was Commander Robert Le Mesurier McClure in the Investigator. The two ships sailed together from Plymouth on 20 January 1850 but unfortunately separated in the neighbourhood of Cape Horn and did not meet again. The Enterprise passed Point Barrow, Alaska, on 21 August, but the ice forced Collinson to return south and winter in Hong Kong. In 1851 he was again hampered by ice and in 1852 was frozen in at Cambridge Bay for the winter. In 1853 the Enterprise was caught in the ice at Camden Bay, and there passed a third winter. She reached Point Barrow on 8 August 1854, after being shut up in the Arctic, entirely on her own resources, for upwards of three years. Of the many who had searched for Franklin, Collinson came closest to the place where the expedition had ended. Collinson's addition to geographical knowledge on this Arctic trip was very considerable, and would have been tantamount to the discovery of the north-west passage, had this not been already actually achieved by the men of the Investigator. The Royal Geographical Society awarded him its gold medal in 1858, but he had expected some official reward and was mortified by the scanty acknowledgement his service received. He never again applied for employment under the Admiralty, though he acted on commissions on the naval defence of the Great Lakes, and of the United Kingdom generally" (ODNB).

By the bright waters now her lot is cast. Joy to the happy soul thy bark hath past. The rough sea's foam. Now the long yearnings of thy soul are stilled Home, home, thy peace is won, thy heart is filled. Thou art gone home." According to an old note on the verso, Holmes was a friend, co-worker, and neighbor. Includes postcard of Nightingale's home.

        Chinese Artwork - Large Painted Scroll - Empress Longyu

      China, 1889. A very rare original painted portrait of Chinese Empress Long Yu, made between 1889 to 1908, when she was married to Emperor Guanxu. Vivid artistry and lovely colours depict the Empress as being rather young, presumably in her twenty's. She is seated on a throne and dressed in exquisite court attire, further adorned with pearl jewellry and a royal headdress. An original work by an unidentified Chinese artist, coloured paint on brown paper, rolled into a scroll and prepared for wall display on certain occasions. A round dowel wrapped in Chinese printed cloth is affixed to bottom for weight. The upper wood mount, with string for hanging, is captioned in paint by the artist, identifying the subject of his work, in Chinese, as being 'Empress Long Yu, wife of Emperor Guanxu'. Scroll measures approximately 182 x 63 cm. Minor wear to edges, otherwise in Very Good, original condition. Suitable for hanging display. Any original image of Empress Long Yu is exceedingly scarce. Empress Xiaodingjing (1868-1913), better known as Empress Dowager Longyu, personal name Jingfen, was the Empress Consort of the Guangxu Emperor, emperor of the Qing dynasty and imperial China. She is best remembered for signing the abdication documents in 1912 on behalf of Puyi, the Last Emperor. On 26 February 1889 Empress Xiaodingjing was married to the Guangxu Emperor (1871-1908, personal name Zaitian), becoming his Empress immediately after the wedding. The wedding ceremony was an extravagant and spectacular occasion. Immediately after the Guangxu Emperor's death in 1908, Empress Dowager Cixi appointed Puyi, a nephew of the Guangxu Emperor, as the new emperor. Empress Dowager Cixi died the following day. Empress Dowager Longyu did not have any children with the Guangxu Emperor, and so she adopted the infant Puyi as her child. Although her predecessor Cixi had decreed before her death that the Qing imperial court would never again allow women to serve as regents, Longyu remained the leading figure in the Qing government and was consulted on all major decisions. However, because she was inexperienced in politics, in the first few years of Puyi's reign, the emperor's biological father, Zaifeng (Prince Chun), served as the regent for Puyi alongside the general Yuan Shikai. On Yuan Shikai's advice in the fall of 1911, Empress Dowager Longyu signed an abdication on behalf of five-year-old child Emperor Puyi. The Qing dynasty came to an end in 1912 and was replaced by the Republic of China. Within a few months after the fall of the Qing dynasty, on 22 February 1913, only 45 years of age, Empress Dowager Longyu died in Beijing of an illness. She was the only Chinese empress whose coffin was transported from the Forbidden City to her tomb by train. . Very Good.

        Manuscript Letter - ALS Regarding Unannounced African Exploration Plans and Preparatons for His Grand Exhibition in Vienna

      London, 1889. Manuscript signed letter by Emil Holub dated 8/9, the day before leaving London for Vienna, therefore penned on 9 August 1889 as he was just beginning preparations for his grand exhibition in Prater Park which opened in May 1891. His correspondence describes the magnitude of the collection to be displayed, mentions the books which he was currently working on, and reveals little-known plans for another expedition to Africa. 8vo. 2 pages in a fine cursive hand. Double leaf letterhead with Holub's home address printed to top right margin, 55 De Beauvoir Road in London, watermarked 'Jordan Superfine', and measuring approximately 12 x 20 cm. Minor separation at bottom of fold, otherwise in very good condition, an important correspondence for any Africana collection. The recipient of this letter is Erwin Arnold, renowned journalist and poet, also Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Telegraph, who arranged the journey of H.M. Stanley to Africa to discover the course of the Congo River, on behalf of the proprietors of the Daily Telegraph in conjunction with the New York Herald. [Stanley named a mountain after him.] In this correspondence, Emil Holub divulges his plans for a most ambitious fourth expedition to unexplored regions of the Congo and South Africa, specifically to Matoka in the Congo and some uncharted regions inhabited by the Mashukulumbe people. Owing to an extended bout with malaria and other diseases contracted in Africa, and possibly also financial struggles, Holub did not undertake the expedition. He did, however, in 1891, present a spectacular and highly successful scientific exhibition of over 13,000 specimens collected during his 10 years of African travels. Holub also refers to the making of his book, which would be published in Germany the following year, and the loss of 18 of his personal diaries which were taken by tribal men from his camp at the village of Galulonga in August 1886. Excerpts from the letter: "I have given up the idea to cross the A. [African] Continent from South to Luanda or to Zanzibar...." [footnote] "... at present not difficult to perform as the traders coming from South and the Central coasts with whom you may travel, meet on the Zambezi," "...for the sake of an exploration of the northern Matoka and the Mashukulumbe - countries which have not been visited by Europeans before." "The scientific results of the expedition... researches and collections in Natural History and ethnology might turn out to be the largest brought out from Africa by any expedition. These objects fill 154 cases and will take at least 18 months of time to have... everything ready for an Exhibition." "It was my intention to deal of every one of the branches of science to which I have devoted my labour during the journey in a separate volume, but the loss of 18 of my diaries at Galulonga makes this for some of these branches difficult." End Excerpts. Having travelled extensively in south central Africa gathering varied and valuable natural history collections, Holub returned to Austria in 1887 with an enormous collection of great scientific interest, with mammals, birds, ethnographic specimens, and much more. Indeed, this was the largest exhibition of African artifacts and animals at that time in Europe. Beginning in May of 1891, in Prater park, Vienna, Holub exhibited his monumental collection of some 13,000 specimens gathered on his expedition of 1883-1886, as well as those previously gathered in the 1870s, drawing the attention of numerous men of science, as well as the public. One year later the collection was transferred to Prague. The collection was later distributed amongst museums, scientific institutions and schools. At the same time as he was preparing for the exhibition, and at the time of this letter, Holub was writing his second book of travels (a German work describing his explorations in Africa 1883-1887), publishing papers for various societies and journals, and lecturing in Austria, Germany, England and France. In 1890, Hobul published a two-volume work titled "Von der Capstadt ins Land der Maschukulumbe: Reisen im südlichen Afrika in den Jahren 1883-1887" [From Cape Town to the Land of the Maschukulumbe: Travels in southern Africa in the years 1883-1887]. Explorer Emil Holub (1847-1902) was eminently qualified to undertake travel in the Africa of his day. He was a doctor of medicine, a zoologist, a botanist, a hunter and taxidermist, an artist and cartographer, an avid collector of specimens and, above all, a keen observer. Where Livingstone broke new ground Holub followed to consolidate, to record, to add detail to the broad canvas painted by his eminent predecessor. He first arrived at the Cape in 1872. Dr Holub accumulated funds to allow him to make his three long expeditions from 1873 to 1879, by treating patients on the diamond fields. He collected a large number of ethnological specimens which were exhibited in Vienna after his return to that country in 1879. Emil Holub's compelling ambition was to follow in the footsteps of Dr Livingstone and, specifically, to reach Luanda by way of the Zambesi valley and across Angola. That he failed in his principle objective does not diminish his stature as a traveller-explorer nor, indeed, the fascination which modern readers will derive from his meticulous accounts of the journeys, the third of which took him to the upper reaches of the Zambesi River. He returned from his second trip to Southern Africa (1883-1887) with numerous collections which he displayed at an African Exhibition in Vienna in 1891 and in Prague in 1892. This was the largest Exhibition of African artifacts and animals at that time in Europe, and to this day probably the largest of its kind in Central Europe. It took 72 railroad cars to transport the exhibits from Vienna to Prague which included 513 stuffed, wild animals, 2,300 stuffed birds, 3,000 snakes and thousands of plants. In addition, there were replicas of African Villages to admire in their original size, complete with life-size models of African warriors. Most of the archaeological and anthropological items were donated after the exhibition by Holub to various museums around the world - they can be seen today in St. Petersburg, London, Madrid and Copenhagen. A total of 580 institutions world-wide received material from Holub. Holub is perhaps the best-known of Czech explorers, and made vast contributions to public understanding of Africa in the latter half of the 19th century. . Very Good.

Fowler probably began his career in this field as a sales and subscription agent...Beginning in 1887 Fowler concentrated on Pennsylvania. Over a twenty-year period ending in 1906 he produced more than 200 lithographs of towns in that state. The great majority identify the publishers as T.M. Fowler and James B. Moyer.

"The novel is a characteristic Twainian amalgam of fantasy and fun, observation and satire, that both amuses and provokes powerful reflection as it confronts the customs of olden times with the brash values of the New World" (Lacy, 478). This title is Twain's first collaboration with illustrator Dan Beard. "Since Twain enthusiastically approved every drawing in the novel, it should be read as a full collaboration between the author and artist" (LeMaster & Wilson, 64).

        Discusses Unannounced Exploration Plans and his Colossal Vienna Exhibit

      Manuscript signed letter by Emil Holub dated 8/9, the day before leaving London for Vienna, therefore penned on 9 August 1889 as he was just beginning preparations for his grand exhibition in Prater Park which opened in May 1891. His correspondence describes the magnitude of the collection to be displayed, mentions the books which he was currently working on, and reveals little-known plans for another expedition to Africa. 8vo. 2 pages in a fine cursive hand. Double leaf letterhead with Holub's home address printed to top right margin, 55 De Beauvoir Road in London, watermarked 'Jordan Superfine', and measuring approximately 12 x 20 cm. An important correspondence for any Africana collection. The recipient of this letter is Erwin Arnold, renowned journalist and poet, also Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Telegraph, who arranged the journey of H.M. Stanley to Africa to discover the course of the Congo River, on behalf of the proprietors of the Daily Telegraph in conjunction with the New York Herald. [Stanley named a mountain after him.] In this correspondence, Emil Holub divulges his plans for a most ambitious fourth expedition to unexplored regions of the Congo and South Africa, specifically to Matoka in the Congo and some uncharted regions inhabited by the Mashukulumbe people. Owing to an extended bout with malaria and other diseases contracted in Africa, and possibly also financial struggles, Holub did not undertake the expedition. He did, however, in 1891, present a spectacular and highly successful scientific exhibition of over 13,000 specimens collected during his 10 years of African travels. Holub also refers to the making of his book, which would be published in Germany the following year, and the loss of 18 of his personal diaries which were taken by tribal men from his camp at the village of Galulonga in August 1886. Excerpts from the letter: "I have given up the idea to cross the A. [African] Continent from South to Luanda or to Zanzibar...." [footnote] "... at present not difficult to perform as the traders coming from South and the Central coasts with whom you may travel, meet on the Zambezi," "...for the sake of an exploration of the northern Matoka and the Mashukulumbe - countries which have not been visited by Europeans before." "The scientific results of the expedition... researches and collections in Natural History and ethnology might turn out to be the largest brought out from Africa by any expedition. These objects fill 154 cases and will take at least 18 months of time to have... everything ready for an Exhibition." "It was my intention to deal of every one of the branches of science to which I have devoted my labour during the journey in a separate volume, but the loss of 18 of my diaries at Galulonga makes this for some of these branches difficult." End Excerpts. Having travelled extensively in south central Africa gathering varied and valuable natural history collections, Holub returned to Austria in 1887 with an enormous collection of great scientific interest, with mammals, birds, ethnographic specimens, and much more. Indeed, this was the largest exhibition of African artifacts and animals at that time in Europe. Beginning in May of 1891, in Prater park, Vienna, Holub exhibited his monumental collection of some 13,000 specimens gathered on his expedition of 1883-1886, as well as those previously gathered in the 1870s, drawing the attention of numerous men of science, as well as the public. One year later the collection was transferred to Prague. The collection was later distributed amongst museums, scientific institutions and schools. At the same time as he was preparing for the exhibition, and at the time of this letter, Holub was writing his second book of travels (a German work describing his explorations in Africa 1883-1887), publishing papers for various societies and journals, and lecturing in Austria, Germany, England and France. In 1890, Holub published a two-volume work titled "Von der Capstadt ins Land der Maschukulumbe: Reisen im südlichen Afrika in den Jahren 1883-1887" [From Cape Town to the Land of the Maschukulumbe: Travels in southern Africa in the years 1883-1887]. Explorer Emil Holub (1847-1902) was eminently qualified to undertake travel in the Africa of his day. He was a doctor of medicine, a zoologist, a botanist, a hunter and taxidermist, an artist and cartographer, an avid collector of specimens and, above all, a keen observer. Where Livingstone broke new ground Holub followed to consolidate, to record, to add detail to the broad canvas painted by his eminent predecessor. He first arrived at the Cape in 1872. Dr Holub accumulated funds to allow him to make his three long expeditions from 1873 to 1879, by treating patients on the diamond fields. He collected a large number of ethnological specimens which were exhibited in Vienna after his return to that country in 1879. Emil Holub's compelling ambition was to follow in the footsteps of Dr Livingstone and, specifically, to reach Luanda by way of the Zambesi valley and across Angola. That he failed in his principle objective does not diminish his stature as a traveller-explorer nor, indeed, the fascination which modern readers will derive from his meticulous accounts of the journeys, the third of which took him to the upper reaches of the Zambesi River. He returned from his second trip to Southern Africa (1883-1887) with numerous collections which he displayed at an African Exhibition in Vienna in 1891 and in Prague in 1892. This was the largest Exhibition of African artifacts and animals at that time in Europe, and to this day probably the largest of its kind in Central Europe. It took 72 railroad cars to transport the exhibits from Vienna to Prague which included 513 stuffed, wild animals, 2,300 stuffed birds, 3,000 snakes and thousands of plants. In addition, there were replicas of African Villages to admire in their original size, complete with life-size models of African warriors. Most of the archaeological and anthropological items were donated after the exhibition by Holub to various museums around the world - they can be seen today in St. Petersburg, London, Madrid and Copenhagen. A total of 580 institutions world-wide received material from Holub. Holub is perhaps the best-known of Czech explorers, and made vast contributions to public understanding of Africa in the latter half of the 19th century.
