        A fine collection of four late 19th century original photographs of scenes in Hong Kong.

      Hong Kong, [circa 1890]. - 4 albumen prints, 190 x 725 mm and 205 x 270 mm, all mounted on contemporary paper (285 x 40 mm) with manuscript titles in French. "Hong-Kong / Panorama général": a fine, large-scale panorama embracing all of Victoria, the capital of Hong Kong, from the perspective of the harbour. The scene is centred upon the concentration of major buildings along the grand quayside of the Praya, including the City Hall, the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank Building and the Hong Kong Hotel, the six-story building featured in the centre-right of the panorama. Notably, the hotel seems to still be in a partially-completed state, as construction of the edifice was not completed until 1892, a detail which helps to date the photograph. Numerous boats can be seen plying the harbour in the foreground, evidence that Hong Kong was one of Asia's busiest ports. Victoria Peak rises above the city, and the thin white line shown ascending the mountain, above City Hall, is the famous Peak Tram. This funicular railway was completed in 1888. - "Hong-Kong / La Rade prise de Bowen Road": an engaging view looking down upon Hong Kong harbour from the perspective of Bowen Road. The line of the celebrated Peak Tram, completed in 1888, is shown running up the slope of Victoria Peak, while numerous ships ply the harbour in the background. Bowen Road was named after George Ferguson Bowen, who served as the 9th Governor of Hong Kong from 1883 to 1885. - "Hong - Kong / Anniversaire de la naissance de la Reine": this fascinating view captures the pageantry of the celebration of the birthday of Queen Victoria. Spectators are shown observing vast lines of troops as they fire an armed salute in honour of Her Majesty, while tall ships decorated with banners are moored in the harbor, in the foreground. Queen Victoria (reigned 1837-1901) personified the British Empire, and her birthday (May 24th) was celebrated annually throughout Britain's colonial possessions. Another example of the same photograph, entitled in manuscript, "Queen's Birthday Parade Hong Kong," can be found in the collections of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (accession no. 86.140.310). - "Hong-Kong / Une Rue dans la ville Chinoise": this photograph captures an interesting street scene in Hong Kong's traditional "Chinatown", otherwise known as the Wan Chai District, located to the east of Victoria. While Victoria had a more "anglicized" appearance, befitting the centre of British colonial administration, Chinese modes of building construction, signage and ways of life prevailed in Wan Chai.

        CHRISTOPH COLUMBUS LOGBUCH als Geheimschrift von mir selbst, für meinen Sohn Diego, vom 3ten August 1492 an, geführt und mit Schildereien und Karten versehen worden. Aufgefischt von..

      Dusseldorf: Verlag von Felix Bagel, 1890. 1st Edition. Publisher';s original elaborate vellum 3-D binding mimicking the ocean floor, composed of cast sand embedded with sea shells & sea weed, with a circular medallion attached by thongs with a seal on the underside. Publisher's box with lithographed paper title onlay to lid. Book - Nr Fine to Fine. Inside corners of lid reinforced, right strip of lower box missing, but otherwise this rare box is in very good condition.. Only publication of this tour-de-force of artistic bookmaking, an elaborately illustrated calligraphic diary in rhyming couplets purporting to record Columbus’s dicovery of America. Written to Columbus’s son, Diego, the diary begins with a scrawled note, written amidst a turbulent storm that overtook the Niña on February 14, 1493. The note begs the discoverer of the volume not to disclose its contents and to bring it to the King of Spain. Should anyone doubt the authenticity of this work because it is written in German, Columbus explains in one of the couplets that he wrote the volume in a foreign language in order to further conceal its contents. The extraordinary binding, created to look like the book had been sitting on the ocean floor for centuries, is unlike anything else of the period and is a wonderful bookbinding coup. Artist, author and eccentric designer Karl Maria Seyppel (1847-1913) created several other books of this sort, two alleging to be original Egyptian documents printed on paper replicating papyrus.

        Veterans of the Little Big Horn Photograph c.1890

      D.F.Barry, Superior, Wisconsin, no date. (c.1890), 1890. First Edition. Not Relevant. Very Good Condition. Photograph of Surviving Members of Custer's 7th Cavalry. An interesting photograph, likely taken during a series of events and speeches marking the ten-year anniversary of the Battle of Little Big Horn held at Fort Custer in 1886. The picture, taken on the front steps of a large home, shows an ornately dressed officer seated at the centre surrounded by five additional soldiers, eight women, and one male in civilian dress. The man at the centre is likely Lieut. Andrew Nave of the 7th Cavalry. Other identifiable officers are Jonathan Merrill, Capt. S. Barcer, Lieut. Maron and Lieut. Brennan. Among the women is Mrs. J. McDougall, likely the wife of Capt. Thomas McDougall, one of the officers to whom Custer sent desperate messages in his final moments. Thirteen of the subjects and their positions are identified on a small slip of paper accompanying the photograph. While still in residence in Bismark, North Dakota, Barry went to Fort Custer to capture scenes from the large anniversary gathering of veterans of the Little Big Horn. The present picture was likely reproduced from the original plate after Barry settled in Superior, Wisconsin in 1890. The label on the reverse identifies the artist as D.F. Barry. Photographs of ALL noted Indian Chiefs. Photographer. 1812 Tower Ave. Superior, Winsconsin. Barry often made reproductions of earlier works and constant strong sales afford him an influential position in his adopted city. Most popular was his series of Indian Chiefs, including such notables as Chief Gall. Little John, and Sitting Bull. A lovely photograph, from an important western photographer. Superior, Wisconsin. c.1890. 7 x 5 inches. Blindstamped and written attribution in lower portion, contemporary paper label on verso. The B of Barry has passed straight through the print. Clean. Very good. Quantity Available: 1. Category: History; General Custer; General Custer. Inventory No: 188468. .

        The Golden Bough A Study in Comparative Religion

      London and New York: Macmillan and Co.,, 1890. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, titles gilt to spines, mistletoe design to front boards gilt, dark green coated endpapers. Frontispiece to volume I. Contemporary gift inscriptions to first blank of Vol. II. Minor wear to tips, cloth a little rubbed with the odd faint mark, light foxing to endleaves, some pencilled annotations to text, small tear to rear free endpaper. An excellent set. First edition of Frazer's groundbreaking study of comparative religion. "Frazer's true subject is nothing less than humanity's long upward struggle towards an understanding of itself and the world. In Frazer's view that movement towards the light began in earliest times with the priest?king employing magic to compel the gods to do his bidding, followed by a religious stage in which humans admit their powerlessness and now beseech rather than command the gods. Thus for Frazer religion is a necessary stage in mental evolution, but one that is based on mistaken premisses; it has now in turn been superseded by a world-view based on rationality: positive science. In focusing on the pattern of the dying and reviving god that lay at the heart of the religions of the ancient Mediterranean, while never mentioning Christianity, Frazer was more than a little disingenuous. In truth he was engaged all the while in a covert campaign against religion in general and Christianity in particular and may perhaps be seen, along with H. G. Wells, as the most important exponent of secularism in the twentieth century" (ODNB).

        Christoph Columbus Logbuch, als Geheimschrift von mir selbst, für meinen Sohn Diego, vom 3ten August 1492 an, geführt und mit Schildereien und Karten versehen worden.

      - Aufgefischt von C. M. Seyppel. Bagel, Düssdeldorf (1890). 2 Bl., 39 S., 2 Bl. mit zahlr. Abbildungen im Text. 4°. Pergamentband mit anhängendem Siegel Columbus'. In neuer Schachtel mit aufgezog. Orig.-Vordertitel der Orig.-Schachtel. – So vollständig mit dem Siegel und den Muscheln und Tang selten. – Im Gegensatz zu seinen 'Mumiendrucken', die polemisch antisemitisch waren, ist dieses Buch eher harmlos-amüsant. Es ist von großer Seltenheit, wahrscheinlich zur 400. Jahrfeier der Entdeckung Amerikas entstanden. So schöne Exemplare wie dieses kommen fast nie auf den Markt. – Pergamentband durch den angeblichen Aufenthalt im Meere stark wellig, mit Sand verunreinigt, darauf Muscheln, Seegras und Seetang; der Vorsatz ebenfalls versandet, die Seiten des Buches durch den Aufenthalt im Wasser etwas wellig und grün.

      1890 - 364 pp Paris.

Bon exemplaire non rogné, en reliure postérieure. Vicaire V, 876. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
