        [Photo Album]: 1890s India Snapshots

A collection of 44 sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs inserted into white cardboard mounts measuring between 3.5" x 4.5", without captions. The photographs are near fine with occasional creasing in a very good photo album with spotting, chips, and tears. A photo album comprised of Victorian-era snapshot photographs of a family, probably the family of a British officer residing in India in the 1890s. These images depict upper middle class British life in the Nagfur region of Central India among the native Indians with a woman in mosquito netting playing with monkeys, numerous group photos of Indian men, and the family's dogs. One section of photographs show the group, along with turbaned men, swimming and lounging by a lake, while another shows them on horseback. An early collection of snapshot photography with interesting scenes of the interstices between Indian and British culture during the Raj. .

      Chicago: Kurz & Allison, 1890.. Color lithograph, 19 1/2 x 26 inches. Matted and framed. Near fine. A dramatic rendering of the first major battle in the Civil to involve African-American troops, the attempted storming of a Confederate fort near Charleston, South Carolina on July 18, 1863. Col. Robert Gould Shaw was killed along with fifteen other officers and nearly 300 of his men. The print shows the Union troops charging the ramparts of Fort Wagner, charging into the oncoming Confederate rifle and cannon fire. A Union officer, likely intended to be Shaw, stands atop the first rampart, sword held high, the flag waving boldly next to him. Union ships float off the coast in the background, shells bursting above them. Robert Gould Shaw (1837-1863) came from a wealthy Massachusetts family noted for upholding reform and abolitionist causes. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, Shaw distinguished himself in combat, surviving the bloody battles of Antietam and Cedar Mountain. After the Emancipation Proclamation was passed in 1863, Massachusetts Governor John Andrew organized the army's first black volunteer unit, the 54th Massachusetts. Despite his initial refusal, Shaw was ultimately persuaded by his family, to accept the command. Sent to fight in the Union effort to seize the border islands of the Carolina coast in the late spring of 1863, the regiment proved its valor that summer by holding off Confederate troops at James Island, South Carolina. "Two days later [July 18, 1863], on Morris Island, Shaw proudly volunteered his regiment to lead the assault on the impregnable Fort Wagner, the first step in an offensive on the Confederate stronghold of Charleston, South Carolina. When the Fifty-fourth charged the fort, 272 were killed, wounded, or captured. One of those who fell was Shaw, leading his African-American troops in battle. Although the assault failed, the bravery of the Fifty-fourth proved the ability of black troops, and in death, the young Shaw was ennobled as a martyr to freedom and as a symbol of enlightened sacrifice" - ANB. he soldiers of the 54th impressed Shaw with their dedication and valor, which they demonstrated during the Fort Wagner assault. Shaw was buried with his troops by the Confederates in a mass grave on the site of the assault. Shaw and his troops are the subject of one of the most celebrated works of public sculpture in the United States, Augustus St.-Gaudens's Shaw Memorial, on the corner of the Boston Common nearest the State House. Shaw's leadership of the regiment is best known to many people today through the film "Glory" (1989), which culminates in the attack on Ft. Wagner and Shaw's death. A dramatic portrayal of this important historical moment. BLOCKSON 111.

        Weiblicher Akt, um 1890. Schabkunst auf Bütten, 29 x 17 cm (Plattenmaß), 44,5 x 32 cm (Blattgröße), unten links typographisch bezeichnet, unten rechts mit dem DVK Stempel.Singer 271/III. Leicht fleckig im weißen Rand.

      . 0 S.. Für Klinger war die Druckgraphik über seine ganze Schaffenszeit hinweg ein entscheidendes Medium, das ihm immer wieder zur Findung neuer Bildideen diente. Bei diesem Blatt wandte sich Klinger der Schabkunst zu. Das Charakteristikum und der Reiz der Schabkunst besteht darin, dass das Licht mit einem Schabeisen in den zuvor aufgerauten Plattengrund eingearbeitet wird. Das Dargestellte wird gleichsam ans Licht gebracht, während die dunkle Tonalität ein bestimmendes Moment des Bildes bleibt. Diese ästhetische Wirkung nutzt Klinger hier virtuos aus. Der Frauenkörper scheint sich aus dem schwarzen Grund heraus zu materialisieren, wodurch er eine erscheinungshafte Qualität aufweist. Zugleich gewinnt die Figur durch den kraftvolle Körper, die Haltung und Gestik eine klassische Zeitlosigkeit. Damit realisiert Klinger sein künstlerisches Anliegen, bedeutungsvollen tradierten Formen eine lebendig-gegenwärtige Präsenz zu verleihen. Aus einer solchen Neuschöpfung des überlieferten Idealität speist sich die symbolische Intensität dieses Werkes.

        How the Other Half Lives

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1890. Studies Among the Tenements of New York. Octavo. Original blue-grey cloth, spine lettered in gilt and dark blue, front cover in dark blue, drab brown endpapers. 43 illustrations (18 halftones from photographs by the author). Spine sunned but an excellent copy. First edition, a variant binding to that illustrated in Parr & Badger (The Photobook: A History) with no priority assigned. How the Other Half Lives is the most important work of the Danish-American social reformer and pioneering documentary photographer Jacob August Riis (1849-1914). "His book is about the tenements of New York: the overcrowded slums of the Lower East Side that were home to boatloads of immigrants who had come to the United States to seek a better life. It is a book about the American Dream, its flipside at least. Riis charts the rise of the tenement and the slum landlord, and takes us by means of colourful and highly charged language into the various ethnic communities that inhabited the Lower east Side - Italian, Chinese, Jewish, Black... it is one of the most important photobooks ever published. It represents the first extensive use of halftone photographic reproductions in a book. These reproductions are rough, to say the least, but it is the beginning, not of a photographic genre, but a photographic attitude, an ethos - humanist documentary photography - in which the photographic social document is employed to bear critical witness to what is going on in the world" (Parr & Badger).

        Hunting in the Dakotas. Collection of 35 photographs of outdoor scenes, including views of hunters and their game bag; goose hunting in dugout blinds in stubble of a harvested field; hunting dogs; and views of landscapes and farms

      [Twin Lakes, No. Dakota 1890 - 35 mounted albumen photographs, 15 captioned in pencil. 5 x 7 inches, on gilt-edged card mounts 8 x 10 inches. Outstanding group of photographs documenting bird hunting in the Twin Lakes area of north central North Dakota (northeast of Bismarck) in the late nineteenth century. Scenes include several of the hunters and their arrayed bag of geese, ducks, grouse, and snipe; turf houses and barns; a wooden farmhouse on the prairie; the hunters' tent camp and wagons; and the narrow stretch of ground between the Twin Lakes. One of the most interesting views shows two hunters standing in dugout pits in the stubble of a harvested field with a long line of decoys behind them; this photograph is the only one to identify the hunters by name (Cummings on the left and Dr. Booth on the right); a second, uncaptioned photograph shows the two men from a different angle, with one of the dogs. The "Lunch" photograph shows a circle of four men and their dog seated in the high grass eating (one hunter taking a pull at a small dark bottle) beside their wagon and tethered horses.Other captions note: "1 afternoon bag, 3 men, 88 geese, 4 varieties"; "Our dogs, 4 pointers 1 setter"; "Duck slue in No. Dakota"; "Mixed bag, ducks, geese, snipe, plover"; four hunters and their dog with their bag of "Sharp tail grouse, ducks, and snipe"; "Rex on point"; the wagon carrying the party of six, titled "grouse hunting"; and other untitled photographs of the same group of men. Several of the wide view photographs are reminiscent of the sporting illustrations of A.B. Frost.A few of the photographs are quite faded, but even in these the scenes can still be discerned.A substantial group of images of sporting life from Dakota frontier. Generally very good (ten photographs quite faded) 35 mounted albumen photographs, 15 captioned in pencil. 5 x 7 inches, on gilt-edged card mounts 8 x 10 inches [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      N.P.: (France), n.d. ca. 1890. The album paper is embossed, "Secail Fils" "Paris". A lovely and elegant album of embossed oblong sheets, highlighted in gold, and featuring original painted illustrations, designed as an exercise in instruction or self- instruction in botany. Although we only have initials to go by, this has quite a feminine feel to it and was probably a young girl's student work, such as was often produced in 19th century France.Each leaf is framed with decorative embossing, partially gilt on verso and recto. The versos contain ink manuscript text instructing in botany - the first page begins with the title, " Notions de Botanique" and includes the sub-heading, " Organes de nutrition: racine - tige - feuilles." The pages opposite, recto, contain original drawings with inked captions for the lessons opposite. From cellular tissue and basic root, we move on to various types of roots, such as Racine Bulbeuse. Various types of stem are described and illustrated in color. Then leaves, flowers, and various classifications of vegetation from truffles to lichen and ferns. The study concludes with text and illustrations of fruits and seeds. The original colored drawings are petite and range from 9 to 22 per page. Both the handwriting and the little drawings are done with grace and great care.Oblong album (23.5 x 34 cm.); 14 ff. with gilt title, all leaves with gilt and blind embossed borders; with 209 small hand-colored botanical illustrations on 13 rectos and penned manuscript description on versos.

Quarter red cloth with marbled boards, rubbing to edges, light wear to corners, light foxing to endpapers, inscription to front endpaper. Some light patches of foxing to text, outside margin of two pages in Soldiers Three have slight damage from a label (appears to be an original binding flaw).

Each of these titles had a total Indian issue of 3000 copies.

        Original Sketchbook of Jewellery Design.

      [c.1890?] 279 largely hand-coloured designs on tissue paper or card, tipped in to a square-ruled note book. Orig. black cloth. Stationery label of L.&D. Grebel, Paris.A wonderful collection of jewellery designs, probably French. The highly detailed designs, largely in colour, are of ornamental combs, bachelor buttons and possibly brooches. The sketches for the decorative heads of combs are elegantly uncomplicated often with a floral design or with the addition of a dove or dragon. The other, largely circular designs, are distinctive in style with the continual inclusion of animals, cherubs, floral patterns, and musical instruments. The more unusual sketches have an air of the fairytale about them; cherubs riding dragonflies, doves, snails and cats; violin-playing crickets and cello-playing mice.
