Their first book had been all about women; the second book should be all about men. Accordingly they set to work selecting certain types that pleased them; they wrote a fresh collection of pleasant essays and presented the reading public with "Wits and Beaux of Society". The one book is as good as the other; there is not a pin to choose between them. There is the same bright easy, gossiping style, the same pleasing rapidity. There is nothing tedious, nothing dull anywhere. They do not profess to have anything to do with the graver processes of history -- these entertaining volumes; they seek rather to amuse than to instruct, and they fulfill their purpose excellently. There is instruction in them, but it comes in by the way; one is conscious of being entertained, and it is only after the entertainment is over that one finds that a fair amount of information has been thrown in to boot. The Whartons have but old tales to tell, but they tell them very well, and that is the first part of their business." (Preface).Katherine Thomson (1797–1862) (née Byerley, also as Mrs A. T. Thomson, pseudonym Grace Wharton) was an English writer, known as a novelist and historian. She was the seventh daughter of Thomas Byerley of Etruria, Staffordshire, a nephew by marriage and sometime partner and manager of the pottery works of Josiah Wedgwood. She married, in 1820, the physician Anthony Todd Thomson, as his second wife. During their residence in London, for some of the time at Hinde St

        Delia Bathing and Celia's Doves.

      Vizetelly & Co. [1890], London - Exquisite full morocco inlaid binding signed in rear turn-in, "The Garret." A striking binding in the manner of the Guild of Women BInders or the closely allied Hampstead Bindery, featuring Nouveau-style wandering stems with onlay green leaves and terminating in red onlay flower designs, orange onlay designs, elaborate gilt fillet on both covers, spine and dentelles. A wonderfully conceived binding and no doubt the work of an experienced binder, perhaps executed by Guido Bruno (1884-1942), known as "the Barnum of Bohemia," who worked out of an establishment in NYC called, "The Garret" (note same spelling). It was known that for a fee, tourists could observe "genuine Bohemian" artists at work there, and in 1916, the New York Times reported a fire at the premises which destroyed art treasures, rare manuscripts and books. Translated by H. G. Keene. Illustrated with copper engravings after C. Eisen. Limited to 1000 Copies, 250 for Sale in the U. S., and Numbered #3. Some foxing throughout, occasionally heavy. Binding is near fine. A rare and splendid example of early 20th Century bookbinding.

        Circa 1890 - 1930s Collection of Photographs, Correspondence and Paper Ephemera of Dr. Adolf Marcuse & Family, German Military Physician During World War One (with) a Letter Referrng to Albert Einstein

      Germany: Not Published, 1890. Photographs: All loose images, with about 65 photos directly relating to World War I, with about 8 student cadet photographs, some dedicated to Adolf Marcuse and including a couple of men with faces bearing bandages on their faces, probably from dueling; images of nurses, Augusta hospital 1914, doctors, nursing staff and guards at army hospital, interior views of wounded men on wards, real-photo postcard views of bombed areas in Lille and other areas, snapshot of wounded men in field trench being examined; some regiments, places, dates recorded on backs; at least one image of Allied soldiers being marched or guarded by German troops, possibly British & French men. With a group of 1/2 dozen of women violinists, some with several copies, we assume these are Eva Katschinsky (who married Marcuse) and one photo postcard signed from another female violinist to her, with a couple of men with stringed instruments. With a photo-postcard signed from a gentleman expressing thanks to A. Marcuse; also about 200 pieces of family + friends portraiture, school photos including group images and others inscribed to Marcuse, a few travel and formal occasion images, dinners, graduations, fun amateur dramatic events in costume, parties, architecture, perhaps of family homes, a few group images of women, at a hospital or clinic and one with Dr. Marcuse also, a variety of formats for these, from posed studio portraiture done in Germany circa 1890 - 1935 to snapshots, real photo postcards and more, sizes vary; many of these are identified or dated or have photographic studio imprint; and a much later souvenir photo from the Georgian Bay Line with A.Marcuse & family on board one of the line's Great Lakes cruise ships, circa 1950s. Correspondence: 1914 letter Berlin, from Fridhof Frankel; 1915 letter from a friend in the Corps Zastrow; a 1917 postcard to Eva with the stamp of musical composer Professor Issay Barmas and 1917 short letter on mourning paper also from Barmas, a few postcards to Marcuse until circa 1931 Berlin and a few other personal notes from friends. Also a 4-page typed letter dated January 1939 Amsterdam from 'Gunther' presumably a nephew, to "Lieber Onkel Adolf" regarding his attempts to leave Holland and emigrate to the United States, with much hope placed on his friendship with a Mrs. Perleberg and Mrs. Lumley - who, with their connections and with his own to Albert Einstein he may somehow acquire a scholarship or position at Princeton - with alternative plans possibly to England - Einstein & his influence in this case mentioned several times, his name being regarded as particularly influential. Miscellaneous: a four-sided camp newspaper, "Der Stacheldraht Weihnachtszeitung fur das Feldlazarett 397" printed on pale green paper, with the pencil name of Marcuse, printed Frankreich, OU. im Jahre des Heils 1917 with poetry, information on the doctors at this field-hospital, camp entertainments - the military hospital depicted in this collections' photos; 4 printed amateur or student theater and music broadsides, two of which list the polar explore Fritz Loewe as one of the participants in 1910 and 1912, the other sheets for musical performances. Also listing Fritz Loewe is a large broadside sheet 12 3/4" x 16 1/2" giving the individual subjects for the students of the Provinzialschulkollegium Berlin summer studies program; a (9) page typed and side-sewn paper, "Richard Wagner und seine Meister-Sanger" with corrections and a handwritten commentary at the final page; several 'zeugnis-heft' or school report cards for Adolf Marcuse for the years 1894 - 1903, with 4 similar loose broadside-style printed zeugnis report sheets from the Stadtische hohere Schule zu Montjoie 1903-1904, and 25 additional zuegnis 1904 - 1912 for A. Marcuse from the Konigliches Joachimsthalsches Gymnasium, also broadside style sheets, these reporting on his work in the schools; several dozen pages of manuscript poetry, all signed by Adolf Marcuse, mostly dated 1910 - 1927; a booklet with the name of Adolf Marcuse on the cover, with theater and drama-related writings in manuscript, about 30 pages; a small booklet, perhaps done for school drama class with the name of Eva Katschinsky on the cover, with a (16) page play written in pencil; a musical manuscript, lyrics & staff notation, 5 bars initialed A.M. in 1913; several newspaper clippings referring to and publicizing musical performances, with the commonality of the musical performance career of Eva Katschinsky, violinist; group of about 30 unused bookplates of Adolf Marcuse, with a owl-globe-open book in a circle, name with a stylized nouveau floral surround, printed black on cream paper stock and a billing notice form the Privat-Klinik Bethesda Berlin to Hrrn Dr. Med. A. Marchuse for 'wife & child' evidently for a hospital stay in 1913, perhaps for a childbirth; several postally-used postcards or otherwise identified, mostly scenic, travel related German locations, a pamphlet "In Memoriam S.G. Rosenbaum" with a photograph of S.G. & Francis F. Rosenbaum Jr. in 1928; in very good condition. NOTE: Adolf Marcuse - this is not the astronomer of the same name, who died in 1930 - although there is a certain resemblance, perhaps they were related; it appears from some of the later snapshot photographs that some of the family members may have served in the American military in WWII, some parts of the family may have come to the U.S. to settle; others who were friends of the family, as Fritz Loewe, were certainly Jewish and either fled or were killed in Germany. Condition: Some wear & rubbing, soil; paper ephemera usually with old fold lines, darkening; the photos and other materials in good to very good condition.. Manuscript & Photography . Not Bound. Very Good.

        Harper's Bazaar 1890. FULL YEAR BOUND VOLUME

      New York.: Harper Brothers.. VOLUME 23.. 1890.. Massive volume; three-quarter leather binding 16 x 11 inches; 1052 pp. Fifty-two lavishly illustrated issues; 32 featuring a Supplement. Of great interest are the 24 tipped-in folded patterns for clothing: women's garments, young girls' garments; dolls' costumes, etc. These are bound into the volume, and all are in very good condition. Copious illustrations of women's and young girls' clothing are featured in the newspaper; these include tennis blouses, formal evening wear, riding habits, gowns for various occasions including weddings; also shawls, hats, embroidery patterns and more. Several newspapers have short marginal tears (repaired with archival tape); one cover was soiled in the mail. Abrasions to exterior: spine edges and corners of covers; overall very good condition. ITEM WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 20 LBS: WE WILL QUOTE EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES. The rear page of each issue of the newspaper features captioned cartoon images (6 x 4.5 inches or so); many of these depict African-American characters whose verbal exchanges are rendered in dialect. There are other cartoons featuring Chinese characters. The newspaper's extensive single and double-page illustrations focus on costumes of the day, but others reflect wider-ranging interests. These include a bird's eye view of Rome, bicycling, the deck of an Iron Clad (ship) photographed from the mast of another vessel, art work by various artists including Alice Barber (Stevens) whose Harmony in a Virginia Cabin depicts an African-American family, a full-page illustration depicting a female photographer, illustrations of theatrical interest, etc. Loads of full-page illustrations of British royalty and English historical subjects make clear the Anglophile leanings of the publisher and no doubt the bulk of the newspaper's readers. A small mailing label on the front cover of the newspaper identifies the subscriber to the publication as Jacob Kamm of Portland Oregon. Kamm, a prominent businessman in 19th century Portland, founded the Oregon Steam Navigation Company and was heavily involved in real estate in the city. His estate was valued at over four million dollars at the time of his death in 1912. The volume is in very good condition, tight and attractive in its binding. Uncommon in such good condition. .

        Mädchen vor dem Anna-Altar in der Stadtpfarrkirche in Rattenberg in Tirol.

      - Öl auf Holz, rechts unten signiert „O. Piltz" sowie zusätzlich auf der rechten Grabplatte „O. Piltz München". 54,5:36 cm. Gerahmt. Vermutlich um 1890 auf einer Studienreise nach Tirol entstanden. Literatur: Wohl identisch mit Bötticher Nr. 63 „Vor dem Hochaltar", aus der Sammlung Adolf von Liebermann, versteigert in Berlin, bei J.M. Heberle, 12.03.1894. Vergleichsliteratur: C. Bantzer: Hessen in der deutschen Malerei. Hrsg. Von A. Baeumerth. Marburg, Hitzeroth, 1993, S. 85 f., Abb. des Gemäldes „Taufe in der Kirche zu Cappel". Piltz war Schüler von Graf St. von Kalckreuth (1820-1894) an der Kunstschule in Weimar. 1870 hielt er sich in Willingshausen auf, mehrere Aufenthalte in Kleinsassen/Rhön sind ebenso belegt. 1882 erhielt er dort den Professorentitel. 1889 siedelte er nach München über, wo er 1893 der Münchner Sezession und dann der Künstlergenossenschaft beitrat. Piltz malte vornehmlich ländliche Genreszenen und Kinder und schilderte Leben und Bräuche bei Jung und Alt auf dem Lande, in Dörfern und kleinen Städten, dem Treiben der Jugend besondere Teilnahme widmend. Sein Bild „Turnunterricht auf dem Lande", 1872, wurde auf den Weltausstellungen in Berlin und Paris gezeigt. Der dargestellte Anna-Altar befindet sich im Knappenschiff (1718) der Pfarrkirche zum Hl. Virgil (erbaut 1473-1507 als zweischiffige Anlage) in der „Nothburgastadt" Rattenberg in Tirol. Das Altarbild stammt von Jakob Zanusi (1679-1732), Engel (1702) und Statuen (1718) von Meinrad Guggenbichler (1649-1723) aus Mondsee.

        [Persian musicians, a painter, a pipe smoker, a gymnast, a bread baker and others].[Paris?], [ca. 1890]. Imperial 4to (32 x 26.5 cm). 27 (of 28) costume drawings in coloured gouaches and gold on paper (12.5 x 10 to 22 x 17.5 cm), mounted in an album. French gold- and blind-blocked red textured cloth (ca. 1890), with a count's crown above textura initials "F.F." on the front board, with the stationer's ticket of Édouard Hautecoeur in Paris.

      An album made in Paris for a count ca. 1890, containing 27 of an original 28 costume drawings in coloured gouaches, several highlighted with gold, on paper. Although there are some variations in size and style they appear to form a fairly consistent series and may have been drawn by a single artist. They appear to be Persian/Iranian rather than Indian or Turkish, but could also be mixed. Most show women, including musicians (playing two different kinds of long-necked lute and a drum) , a painter at her easel, a woman spinning thread, a dancer, a woman doing a cartwheel or hand-stand, two holding or serving drinks. A drawing has been removed from one page but the album otherwise appears to be complete. All drawings are mounted on or loosely inserted before the front and back of the first 10 leaves, with the rest of the album unused. A few drawings show faint offsets from the drawing(s) on the facing page and a few show minor smudges, or faint marginal stains from the adhesive used to mount them. The binding is slightly worn but also very good. A lovely series of Persian/Iranian costume drawings.

        Hedda Gabler [in Norwegian]

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandels Forlag, 1890. First edition. [iv], 236 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original gray cloth, blocked in gilt, a.e.g. A fine copy. Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) grew up in miserable poverty in Norway. He managed to make a living as a free-lance journalist by the time he was in his mid-twenties, finally earning money for all his efforts. From there he went on to write for the theatre, and even managed a small theatre and became director of the National Theatre in Oslo, all the while writing his plays and poetry. Hedda Gabler is "possibly his most frequently performed play in the modern theatre . . . Ibsen's influence on the whole course of modern drama may be indicated by the inclusion of his plays in the repertoire of every avant-garde theatre of his day.".

      Incisione all'acquaforte, mm 390 x 315 (misurati alla battuta del rame). Firma e lugo d'esecuzione (Roma) in basso a destra. Esemplare n. 17 (di 25). Edoardo Del Neri (Gorizia 1890 - Roma 1932), figlio di Clemente, anch'egli pittore, fu allievo all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Vienna e poi a Monaco, dove si specializzò nella grafica. Nel 1912 partecipò alla I Esposizione italiana di xilografia a Levanto, nel 1914 alla Biennale di Venezia. Nello stesso anno si stabilì definitivamente a Roma dedicandosi alla grafica e alla pittura, di questi anni si ricordano le illustrazioni per il "Decamerone" edito da "L'Eroica". Nel 1925 gli venne commissionata la decorazione del padiglione italiano all'Esposizione Universale di Parigi. Nel corso della sua carriera artistica toccò varie correnti, dal Secessionismo, al Novecentismo, fino ad accostarsi, negli ultimi anni, al Futurismo. Rif. bibl.: Martelli, p. 74.
