        TOH DAI DAI SENSOH E ZU: TOH DAI WAR OF 1868 OR THE BOSHIN WARS, AKA: UENO BATTL

      [Tokyo 1890 Miyake]. Nine matching Oban woodcut prints,in an. accordion folding folder, neatly rebacked, each print ca. 25. x 37 cm., folds open to 223.5 cm., very clean, no defects,. lovely polychrome color printing. RARE FIRST & ONLY EDITION. This stunning and complete nine panel print series is more than RARE within the genre of Japanese prints, they are IMPOSSIBLE ! * We are fortunate to have acquired this complete and marvelous work by the master UTAGAWA Yoshitora aka: Gountei [flourished 1850-1880] was an Ukiyo-e painter and did many fine prints of foreigners in Yokohama, with considerable naive charm. His works are widely collected by world museums and institutaions. With the Yoshitora's alternate or "studio name" of Nagashima Mohsai found on two panels [#4 & 9] in a white signature cartououche. * This lovely work covers the Boshin War of 1868, also know as the Ueno or Todai War. * BOSHIN WAR: This is the largest and most famous battle scene of the Ueno war designed by Yoshitora, and is surely the most complete view of the battle ever printed in nine complete panels. It is spectacular and exceedingly RARE to find it complete and preserved in such a clean and flawless state. * The Boshin Senso [war], "War of the Year of the Dragon" was a civil war in Japan, fought from 1868 to 1869 between forces of the ruling Tokugawa Shogunate and those seeking to return political power to the imperial court. The war finds its origins in dissatisfaction among many nobles and young samurai with the Shogunate's handling of foreign-ers following the opening of Japan in 1854 by Commodore Perry, the prior decade. An alliance of southern Samurai and court officials secured the cooperation of the young Emperor Meiji, who declared the abolition of the two-hundred-year- old Shogunate. Military movements by imperial forces and partisan violence in Edo led Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the sitting Shogun, to launch a military campaign to seize the emperor's court at Kyoto. The military tide rapidly turned in favor of the smaller but relatively modernized imperial faction, and after a series of battles culminating in the surrender of Edo, Yoshinobu personally surrendered. The Tokugawa remnant retreated to northern Honshu and later to Hokkaido, where they founded the Ezo republic. Defeat at the Battle of Hakodate broke this last holdout and left the imperial rule supreme throughout the whole of Japan, completing the military phase of the Meiji Restoration. * Approximately 120,000 men were mobilized during the conflict and of these about 3,500 were killed. In the end,the victorious imperial faction abandoned its objective to expel foreigners from Japan and instead adopted a policy of continued modernization with an eye to eventual renegotiation of the Unequal Treaties with the Western powers. Due to the persistence of Saigo Takamori, a prominent leader of the imperial faction, the Tokugawa loyalists were shown clemency, and many former Shogun leaders were later given positions of responsibility under the new government. * The Boshin War testifies to the advanced state of moderni- zation already achieved by Japan barely fourteen years after its opening to the West, the already high involvement of Western nations, especially Great Britain and France in the country's politics, and the rather turbulent installation of Imperial power. Over time, the war has been romanticized by Japanese and others who view the Meiji Restoration as a "bloodless revolution," despite the number of casualties. Various dramatizations of the war have been made in Japan, and elements of the conflict were incorporated into the 2003 American film The Last Samurai. * The work is a series of nine matching panels in vertical Oban format, each with a number i.e. 1-9, with two title cartouches, the first on page 1, the second on page five. Of historical importance, was the actual burning of Kaneji shrine, known then as the most important Buddhist Temple during the Tokugawa Shogunate. It was rebuilt, but this image is perhaps the most original remaining relic of the former glory and true nature of the actual shrine. [Liberally quoted from Wikipedia] * The battle was conducted during a rain storm, and the prints show the streaks of ran falling in silver giving realism to the overall work. The sky area has been delicately mica dusted to give a shimmering starry effect. The two forces are uniformed in greatly differing ways: the Imperial soldiers are in "modern" Western style uniforms, with back packs and rifles with bayonets drawn, while the Imperial opposition were in traditional Samurai warrior uniform, sporting their famed Samurai swords. In panel seven, the Imperial forces were being over-run by the opposition soldiers and they began to commit suicide rather than be killed or captured. One view shows an Imperial Samurai disemboweling himself in the traditional posture with his sword and cutting his jugular, while another uses his toe to shoot himself in the head. A dramatic insight to the brutality of this war. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: L. Roberts: DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS, p.204. - * General Sadahide References: K.

        The Principles of Psychology

      New York: Henry Holt. FIRST EDITION. Original hardcover cloth. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, IN ORIGINAL CLOTH of William James's masterpiece, the foundational work in establishing psychology as an experimental science. "The Principles of Psychology, which appeared in 1890 after twelve years in the making, is undoubtedly his magnum opus. James was an established Harvard professor and a psychologist and philosopher with an international reputation when Principles was published, but the book alone guaranteed him permanent renown. Since psychology and philosophy were not distinctly separated in 1890, Principles is not only a textbook in experimental psychology but also a landmark contribution to the philosophy of psychology or the philosophy of mind. Discussions of the mind-body relationship and of free will, for instance, accompany explanations of brain functions and of physiological optics. Principles, a massive study that occupies two volumes and twenty-eight chapters, is absorbing for the philosopher and the psychologist alike. Russell called Principles 'the most delightful and readable book on its subject,' a sentiment that many modern thinkers still hold" (Myers, William James: His Life and Thought). The true first printing, first issue: with "Psy-chology" hyphenated in ads facing title pages and the misprints: "the seat of intellectual power" instead of "not the sole seat of intellect" (Vol.1, p.10, l. 9-10) and "object of some absent object of sensation" instead of "object of some absent sensation" (Vol.2, p.101, l.20). New York: Henry Holt, 1890. Octavo, original green cloth. Two volumes. Light rubbing to cloth, but cloth exceptionally clean; nearly invisible reinforcement to vol. I front hinge. Occasional smudges to text but text generally very clean. RARE, particularly in such good condition in original cloth.

        [ORIGINAL TYPED DESCRIPTION OF A TRIP TO YOSEMITE IN 1889]

      [N.p., 1890. Formerly string-tied, now lacking the string and the leaves loose (but all present). A bit of light soiling and edge wear on the first leaf. Else near fine. An interesting and lengthy account of a late 19th-century exploration of Yosemite, describing the adventures of the author and his cohorts as well as Yosemite's history, development, and natural wonders. The first eight pages of the work seem to have been drawn directly from an 1888 publication entitled YOSEMITE: WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO DO, written by journalist George MacKenzie (under the pseudonym of Lewis Stornoway). Following that portion the text becomes a first-person narrative, describing the anonymous author's ten-day trip through Yosemite in early May 1889. He recounts his adventures in the park, hiking among various groves, climbing, relaxing in camps and the other accommodations they enjoyed, etc. His adventures are described in great detail and in an engaging manner. There are descriptions of several magnificent waterfalls (including Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls), the "Signal Fire," Glacier Point, and the various innkeepers and other denizens of Yosemite at the time, providing valuable information about the colorful people who populated the park in that era.

Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley reportedly asked, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" Stanley is also known for his search for the source of the Nile, his work in and development of the Congo Basin region in association with King Leopold II of the Belgians, and for commanding the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition. He was knighted in 1899. Stanley travelled to Zanzibar in March 1871 and later claimed that he outfitted an expedition with the best of everything, requiring no fewer than 192 porters. But in his first despatch to The New York Herald he stated that his expedition numbered only 111. This was in line with figures in his diaries. Bennett had delayed sending Stanley the money he had promised, so Stanley had been obliged to borrow from the US Consul. This 700-mile (1,100 km) expedition through the tropical forest became a nightmare. His thoroughbred stallion died within a few days after a bite from a tsetse fly, many of his carriers deserted, and the rest were decimated by tropical diseases. Some 21st century authors suggest that Stanley treated his indigenous porters quite well in contemporary terms, helping to refute his reputation for brutality. But statements by contemporaries paint a very different picture, such as Sir Richard Francis Burton's claim that "Stanley shoots negroes as if they were monkeys". Burton wrote this in a letter to General C. G. Gordon, who replied that killing in self-defence was permissible. "These things may be done," he wrote, "but not advertised." On the subject of self-defence, Stanley wrote: "We went into the heart of Africa uninvited, therein lies our fault, but it was not so grave that our lives [when threatened] should be forfeited." Stanley found Livingstone on 10 November 1871 in Ujiji, near Lake Tanganyika in present-day Tanzania. He may have greeted him with the now-famous line, "Doctor Livingstone, I presume?" It may also have been a fabrication, as Stanley tore out of his diary the pages relating to the encounter. Neither man mentioned it in any of the letters they wrote at this time. Livingstone's account of the encounter does not mention these words. The phrase is first quoted in a summary of Stanley's letters published by The New York Times on 2 July 1872. Stanley biographer Tim Jeal argues that the explorer invented it afterwards as part of trying to raise his standing because of "insecurity about his background". (Wikipedia).

        [title in Hangul character, translated as: Luke's Gospel].

      [Seoul: Sammun Ch'ulp'ansa] 12mo (21.5 cm; 8.5"). 60 ff.. 1890 As Darlow and Moule explain, this is "a revision of J. Ross' version (. . . i.e. the version by Ross, John Macintyre and Saw Sang Yun of the 1882 edition), in which 'an attempt [was] made to remove all Chinese expressions.' This [later] revision affected only the orthography." The Korean Bible Society at its website says that the revision was the work of Henry Appenzeller (1858?-1902), an American Methodist missionary, and gives the publication data. Appenzeller, Horace N. Allen, Horace G. Underwood, William B. Scranton, and Mary F. Scranton (mother of William) are widely credited with introducing Protestant Christianity to Korea beginning in 1885. John Ross, whose version of Luke Appenzeller revised, was associated with the U. P. Church of Scotland Mission at Mukden (i.e,, Shenyang), Liaoning Province, in northeast China, but never travelled to Korea. 1890 seems to be the year when books of the Bible were first printed in Korea; the earlier printings of the Scriptures were done in China or Japan. => Thus, this is one of the first printings of the Bible in Korea. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). => Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC locate only the B.F.B.S. copy at Cambridge. Stitched in original green patterned paper; wrapper sunned at edges and spine. Pencilled English identification to front cover and title-page; with shelf mark also to former. Very good.

        LITTLE ROCK PAINT & COLOR WORKS, MANUFACTURERS OF ARKANSAW TRAVELER READY MIXED PAINTS. PURE WHITE AND BLACK, AND ANY DESIRED SHADE [caption title]

      Little Rock, 1890. Old folds. Some minor discoloration and wear. Very good. Advertising circular for Little Rock Paint Works, with twenty-five different paint chips affixed displaying some of the available shades of pre-mixed paint. Most of the chips are a variant on an olive green, although there is a bright red, a teal, several browns, and a nice mustard color as well. The top of the sheet has an illustration of the Arkansas Traveler by artist John Cameron. Printed on the verso is a formula for calculating how much paint is required to cover a desired surface. Accompanying the circular is a trade card featuring the company's "Iron Clad Paint. For railroad, barn, bridge and roof painting. Mixed ready for use and warranted." A sample of five chips in shades of brown is affixed to the sheet, and the verso contains a notice to the trade offering special prices for large orders. Little Rock Paint Works applied for bankruptcy in December 1893 but seems to have survived, as it appears in Little Rock directories as late as 1897. An interesting piece of ephemeral advertising.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. »Christian«.

      Ohne Ort und Jahr [Breslau 7 IV ] 1890 - 8°. 4 Seiten. An den späteren Schauspieler Friedrich Kayssler (1874-1945). Er schickt Geburtstagswünsche für seinen Lebensfreund, welchen er kurz zuvor, achtzehnjährig, kennen gelernt hatte und dessen erste schriftstellerische Versuche er kritisch betrachtet. Morgenstern gibt somit zugleich Einblicke in seine eigenen, frühen poetologischen Überlegungen. »[.] indem ich in die große Festposaune, in die ja wohl schon männiglich gestoßen wurde, aus vollem Herzen ? wenn auch verspätet ? hineinblase, was bedeuten soll, daß selbiges Dir alles Gute wünscht [.] ich hoffe, jeder deiner folgenden Geburtstage möge vom heutigen angefangen ein Markstein auf der Bahn deines Glückes und einer großen Zukunft sein. Ich scherze nicht! Du hast ganz die Veranlagung zu einem bedeutendem Menschen, ich erwarte nur noch den Zeitpunkt, wo der allmächtige Funke berauschender Jugendleidenschaft, unzähmbaren Wissenstriebes und Thatendranges in dir eingeschlagen hat es hat noch gute Wege bis dahin, aber je später um so stürmischer! [?] Was machst du denn für reizende Geschichten? Herzlichen Dank dafür und zugleich die Bitte, deine noch schlummernden Gedanken immer mehr zu verkörpern. Der Gedanke, den Du hier zum Ausdruck brachtest, ist großartig. Du bedauerst, daß Du das Kindliche des Stils hier nicht anbringen konntest. Wozu? Ist die Idee groß, so laß es auch die Worte sein, ja ich versichere Dich, es wirkt die Art der Märchenerzähler auf die Dauer ermüdend, schreibe richtig so weiter wie in dieser Erzählung. Und Märchen? Sind es denn solche, auch im weitesten Sinne des Wortes? Meiner Ansicht nach kaum; es sind tiefe wunderbare Gedanken in gleich seltsamer Gewandung. Nur zeichne Dein nächstes Bild als blasse, krasse Wirklichkeit d. h. nicht als Traum. Denn es ist ja an sich schon ein Traum, der da als Geschichte erzählt wird -. Doch nimm Dirs nicht als Tadel überhaupt gestatte mir völlig freie Kritik ohne davon gekränkt zu werden! So will ich dir gleich eine Probe davon geben. d. h. für die Zukunft: Werde nicht zu mystisch, hast du aber einen neuen originellen Gedanken, so sprich ihn auf alle Fälle aus! [.]« ? Morgenstern wollte zunächst ebenso wie sein Vater bildender Künstler werden, schrieb sich aber für das Studium der Nationalökonomie in Breslau ein. Erst 1895, fünf Jahre nach diesem vorliegenden Brief, erschien sein erster Gedichtband. ? Etwas gebräunt. Faltenbrüche mit Transparentpapierstreifen fachmännisch hinterlegt. ? Briefe von Christian Morgenstern sind selten, so frühe wie hier, vor seiner schriftstellerischen Laufbahn geschrieben äußerst selten. Jugendbrief aus der Breslauer Zeit 1.000 g gr.

        Photo Album with Sunken Inset Silk Panels with Chromolithographic Images of a Bluebird and Wild Roses (on front), and Just Roses on Back

      Full Morocco (excepting silk panel). Near Fine. A gorgeous brown morocco binding with on both the front and back, large silk panel centerpieces, blindstamped gilt ruling surrounding the panels, gilt border detailing inside and raised bands. N.d., circa 1890. (There is an inscription dated 1890, Belfast, written in German, on the FEP.) Folio, 37 by 31 cm, and 8.5 cm thick. With 30 thick card leaves with photo or carte de visite slots, one to four, on the rectos and versos. Most of the slots are filled with photos from the 1870s to 1890s, some from Switzerland, others, from Ireland, and all are portraits. While we might assume all the people portrayed are related, and some of the people clearly appear multiple times, this would have been a large family, as was commonplace back then, with looks running all over the gamut. One commonality is the severity of expression, but that was also a norm for posing back then. The album is very heavy, weighing over 12 pounds. A few minor abrasions to the leather, and other light wear. Still a magnificant binding.

Recueil de 80 chansons (paroles et musique) de Paulus établi par l'éditeur Clochard en 1890, soit l'intégralité de son répertoire à cette date. Chaque livraison est précédée d'une grande lithographie en couleur signée Faria illustrant le thème de la chanson. Jean-Paul Habans, dit Paulus, (1845-1908) est un des grands chansonniers populaires de la fin du XIXe siècle. Aimé du public pour sa verve et son entrain, il déploie son art dans des textes d'inspiration cocardière. « Dans son cas on ne saurait parler précisément de "répertoire" mais d'airs, de refrains qui eurent le don de plaire à tous les publics quand l'adéquation entre la musique, les paroles et les gestes se réalisait. Aussi, au lieu d'attacher le mot "répertoire" à Paulus ou d'insister pour parler de "répertoire Paulus" il serait plus juste de spécifier qu'il s'agit de pièces musicales telles qu'interprétées par Paulus. Vers 1900 - Paulus a chanté pendant plus de trente ans, renouvelant son répertoire continuellement -, (on comptait) plus de 200 chansons créées ou chantées par Paulus. » (Yves Sinigaglia, Du Temps des cerises aux feuilles mortes).

        Heiliger Michael. "Tavola della Biccherna". Einbanddecke im Stil der Sieneser Renaissance.

      Siena, ca. 1890 - 1900.Zwei, mit breitem Lederrücken (ca. 4,5 cm) verbundene reliefgeschnitzte, reich vergoldete und punzierte Holzdeckel mit 6 (von 8) aufgebrachten Buckelrosetten, gemalten floralen Bordüren und aufwändiger Deckelmalerei mit einer Heiligen - Darstellung und Wappenmalerei mit Textfeld. Einbandnachahmung im Stile der Sieneser Rechnungsbucheinbände von dem Sieneser Maler und Restaurator Icilio Federico Joni (1866 - 1946), einem der berühmtesten Fälscher von Kunstwerken und Haupt einer ganzen Fälscherschule, die sich vor allem auf die Sieneser Malerei spezialisiert hatte. Bei den "Tavole della Biccherna", von denen 18 heute noch bekannt sind, handelt es sich allerdings um freie Neuschöpfungen im Stil der Einbände, die die "Magistratura finanziaria della Repubblica di Siena", die sogenannte Biccherna vom 12. bis zum 18. Jahrhundert für ihre Rechnungsbücher benutzte. Dabei war es üblich, die alle sechs Monate neu berufenen Finanzbeamten in besagten Holzeinbanddecken mit ihren Wappen, Heiligenfiguren, Kontorszenen und meist auch zugehörigen Texten zu ehren. - So waren über die Zeit einige Hunderte Tafeln entstanden, die sich später immer mehr auch zu selbständigen Gemälden entwickelten. Mit der vorliegende Einbandecke geht Joni also auf ein Vorbild zurück, das noch ganz im Kanon des nutzbaren Buchschutzes und Schmucks steht: Auf dem Vorderdeckel ist der "Seelenwäger", der Erzengel Michael dargestellt auf reich mit Punkt - und Kreispunzierungen geschmückten Grund. Hochaufgerichtet mit dem Lanze, Heiligenschein, in kostbarer römischer Rüstung mit Knieplatten nach Engelsgesichtern, Schuppenpanzer und Pfauenaugenflügeln steht der Erzengel über dem niedergeworfenen Teufel in Gestalt eines sich zu seinen Füßen windenden Drachens, die Seelenwage des jüngsten Gerichts in seiner Linken haltend. Die vier angrenzenden Felder sind mit breiten floralen, gepunzten Bordüren auf Schwarzgrund gefüllt, in den Ecken sind die erhabenen Buckelrosetten aus geschmiedetem Messing aufgebracht. Alle Register sind durch in den Kalkgrund gedrückte Lochpunzen begleitet. - Der Rückdeckel folgt demselben Muster, im Mittelfeld sind ein großes und fünf kleine Wappen in erhabenem Kissenrelief dargestellt. Es sind Wappenschilder bekannter italienischer Familien mit dem folgenden Text: "Questo è (i)l nome di quello spettabile cittadino Cuno Q. Riccio Altoviti Camarlengo dell offitio di Biccerna per tenpo (!) di mesi sei da kalende luglio a kalende genaio anno domini 1475", also angeblich von einem wohl tatsächlich existierenden "Camerlengo" einem Verwalter der Sienneser Biccherna. Die Tafeln sind insofern interessant, da Joni hier die Biccherna expressis verbis nennt und die Tafel auch explizit datiert "1475", womit er dem kritischen Begutachter Kriterien zur Nachprüfung überlässt. - Von den 8 Messingbuckeln fehlen jeweils eine auf dem Vorder - und Rückdeckel, mit einigen Gebrauchsspuren, die teilweise auch von dem Fälscher selbst zur Erhöhung der beabsichtigten Authentizität dem Objekt beigebracht wurden: Lederrücken an Kapitalen eingerissen, die Deckel mit mehreren Abplatzungen der vergoldeten Punzenstege, einigen kleineren Abriebstellen der Malerei, wobei das meist zu glatte und leuchtende Gold des Grundes durchscheint, das es im 15. Jahrhundert noch nicht gab und das danut die künstliche Alterung aufdeckt. - Die Deckel wie üblich mit vertikaler Durchbruchstelle und entsprechenden Fehlstellen, jedoch kaum Bildverlust; der hintere Deckel etwas stärker betroffen. Die Heiligendarstellung mit kleinen Abkratzungen (im Gesicht, im Gewand), sonst in sehr guter Gesamterhaltung. - Vgl. Hellmuth Helwig.
