Splendid examples of lace (merletti in Italian) in the form of bed and chair canopies, parasols, fans, tablecloths, bed coverings, trims, and accessories are illustrated in the catalog. Using large negatives and contact printing, the photographer presents the ornate lace segments in sharp and crisp detail. Most of the subjects are displayed flat against a dark background, though a few, such as a parasol and a fan, are shown as complete objects. The Testolini company was a large retailer of Italian textiles and lace in Venice during the late nineteenth century. Expanding into Venetian glass, in 1910 his firm absorbed the Compagnia Venezi - Murano (CVM). In 1920 Testolini merged with Pauly & Co., which is still in business.

First-Edition of the "Repertoire Chromatique. Solution raisonnee & pratique des problemes les plus usuels dans l'etude & l'emploi des couleurs. Vingt-Neuf Tableaux en Chromos representant 952 teintes differentes & definies groupees en plus de 600 gammes typiques". - - " .... system that can perhaps be described as the invention of the color chart." Kunihiko Sugiyama, Color Circles: Who invented color circles - - Charles Lacouture (1832-1908) " was a French botanist, Jesuit and professor of physical and natural sciences at the Ecole Saimt-Clement in Metz. While admiring the work of Michel-Eugene Chevreul (to whom the book is dedicated; see entry in chapter 4), he found it wanting in several respects and hoped to fill its gaps in his own color system. His goals were to improve on color nomenclature, established a theory from a number of fundamental facts, show typical color ranges in charts, and consider possible applications for the system. - - Lacouture's work is divided into four books and 29 colored tables. The tables are colored by chromolithography. Full colors are printed as solid surfaces, and whitened colors, as lines of different thickness on white paper. The gray scale and blackened colors are obtained by printing (or over-printing) lines of black ink at varying line width. Secondary and tertiary colors are obtained by over-printing one primary color with another at right angles or a primary color with curved lines. - - The charts in the book were printed with lines from 1/12 mm to /12 mm in width. The are best viewed from a certain distance to obtain mixture of the components. Lacouture wrote that his are the first color charts produced by this method and credits the chromolithographer M.G. Severeyns with the artistic work. - - While using a four-ink printing method, Lacouture's system is meant to be a system of color perceptions. The chromatic circle is derived from three primitive colors red R, yellow J, anbd blue B, located at the corners of an equilateral triangle. They are defined by wavelengths R = 700 nm; J = 580 nm, and B = 470 nm. The intermediate hues orange ( = 597 nm), green (VE = 526 nm), and violet (V = 400 nm) are placed on a second triangle, with always one intermediate hue interspaced, the whole system in form of a circle of flower petals , affording a general view of the hue arrangement (rose synoptique). Complementary colors as represented by the appropriate wavelengths are placed diametrically opposite in this figure. The six chromatic principal colors are toned with white (BL and black (N), .... - - Lacouture described the three primitives as equidistant, or equally estranged, from each other. He took all the other colors from which they derive; thus, "true green" is equally distant from the blue and yellow from which is derived. He defined tones as the degree of chromatic intensity of a given color. Nuances (hues in our termninolgy) describe the degree of chromatic parentage of a color. The gray scale has five grades between black and white. .... - - Lacouture viewed his color tables as representing color standards (types). For this purpose, he selected pigments resulting in colors free from any trace of the other two. Regarding tone, he stated that they must be absolutely pure (franc), not whitish, or grayish, or blackish. But he was aware that any three pigments represents only approximations of perfect primitives. .... - - Lacouture did not discover any new facts about color order. His book is a labor of love and that shows earnest striving for clarity of relationship and standardization. His figures represent a novel approach to the problem of economical atlas coloration..."

With a total of 126 etchings by Champollion after Raphael Collin, (39 of these consisting of a frontispiece and 12 full-page plates, all in three states, and 87 being 29 text vignettes, each in three states). A Large Paper Copy. Half title printed in gold; prospectus bound in at rear. Vicaire V, 392; "Bibliothèque Henri Petiet" VIII, 150 (this copy). Spine faintly sunned, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY with only the most trivial of imperfections, the text and plates entirely clean, fresh, and bright, and the binding lustrous and unworn. This is a deluxe edition of Longus' pastoral romance, offered here in outstanding condition and in a handsome binding produced by the most famous name in French binders of the period. Working at first by himself and then later with his son, Jean Marius Michel (also called Marius Michel the elder, 1821-90) produced distinguished work in the prevailing historical style for two decades, beginning in Paris in 1849, and he published important books on the history of binding as well. The firm came to even greater prominence when the son, Henri François Marius Michel (1846-1923) began producing bindings in a the completely new and original "Flore Ornamentale" style. The present binding is in the classical mode of Marius Michel the elder and perhaps by him, although, given the date of publication, he would have had to do this binding in the final year of his life. Whoever performed the work, it is characterized, like other bindings from the firm, by a remarkable elegance of design as well as the highest level of technical execution. Our volume is typical of the books collected by French art dealer and bibliophile Henri Petiet (1894-1980). An early champion of Picasso and Matisse, Petiet was much influenced by the great collector Henri Beraldi (1845-1931), and displayed the same taste and discrimination in his purchases. He was especially fond of luxuriously produced limited-run works like this one in signed bindings by all the great artisans of the period--Bozerian, Canape, Carayon, Cretté, Cuzin, Kieffer, Legrain, Maylander, Noulhac, Simier, Thouvenin, Trautz-Bauzonnet, and (as here) Marius Michel.

        Lepidoptera Indica.

      London, L.

Publisher's red gilt pictorial cloth, top edges gilt. Very fine copy of this scarce work on the butterflies of India. It embodies the results of twenty-five years continuous study and research of the subject by the authors. The work contains full descriptions of the families, genera and species, their life histories, structure, variety of form, habitats, and geographical distribution. The plates are by J.N. Fitch, E.C. Knight and F.C. Moore and contain 5000 figures depicting over 1600 species. "Moore entered the doors of entomology by way of his artistic abilities. Dr. T. Horsfield (1777-1859), long associated with the East India Museum, required someone capable of doing natural history drawings, and, through an introduction, Frederic Moore obtained the post. Thus began a lifetime association with the Indian Lepidoptera. 'Lepidoptera Indica' was the last of the great works that flowed from his pen; at the time of his death six volumes had been published... after Moore's death the remaining volumes were completed by C. Swinhoe (1836-1923). Swinhoe had worked closely with Moore and was an expert lepidopterologist. Like Moore, most of his collecting had been done in India and adjacent territories, and he was well qualified to continue this great work"(P. Gibert. Butterfly Collectors and Painters p. 78).//In the 'Bibliographia Lepidopterologica' by W. Junk published in 1913, the work of Moore and Swinhoe is the most expensive work offered in the catalogue priced at M. 1500. It is followed by Hübner's 'Sammlung Europäischer Schmetterlinge' priced at M. 1200. The last copy we have sold of this book is 17 years ago and was priced fl. 60.000 (about 28.000 Euros).//Provenance: Signature of Mr. Kikumaro Okano on inside frontcover, Japanese stamp of his name on title-pages.//Nissen ZBI, 2879.

        Albumen photographs of a rabbit shooting party c. 1890.

      Australia: 1890 - Nine photographs approx. 6 1/4 x 4 3/8" mounted on slightly larger stiff card. The views show a group of men obviously enjoying their day out in the bush. The location is unknown, but there is a rather large lake, and the town has a goodly collection of stone buildings, approximately sixteen properties, with some two story homes and a couple of elongated buildings. There is an affectionate view of the shooting party, four men reclining on the ground next to their tent with their border terrier (?), smoking and smiling, a skiff on a lake behind them; the town view with a main street; a bush scene with a lake and a fellow standing beside his tent; a view of gum trees, with a seated man taking aim, a border collie & a lake behind him; a detailed view of the tent, with two shotguns perched in front; two bush scenes and two beside the rather large lake. A bit of light scattered foxing otherwise quite bright.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Johann Orth").

      Birstein, 20. II. 1890. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Das an Johann Weissenböck, den Verwalter von Schloß Orth bei Gmunden, gerichtete Schreiben schließt direkt an Orths Brief vom 1. II. 1890 an, in welchem er Weissenböck befohlen hatte bestimmte persönliche Objekte nach London zu senden die als Fracht für den später spurlos verschwundenen Dreimaster "Saint Margareth" bestimmt waren. "Danke recht sehr für Ihre Briefe vom 26/I, 1/II und 13/II sowie für die mit dem Letzteren angesagte Sendung. Ich anerkenne sehr die Ordentlichkeit und Gewissenhaftigkeit, womit sie alle bestellten Gegenstände verpackt und ausgewiesen haben. Nur bezüglich des Bettzeugs haben Sie mich nicht recht verstanden. Ich schrieb nämlich nur mein Bettzeug u. meinte damit jenes meines Bettes in Schloß Orth. Sie aber schreiben mir, Sie hätten sich nicht getraut von meinem Bette den Polster zu nehmen. Ich ersehe daraus daß Sie überhaupt nicht mein Bettzeug, wie befohlen, sondern jenes von Linz geschickt haben. Nun aber sind - wie Sie wissen müssen - die Sachen aus Linz für die neuen Mietwohnungen bestimmt und war es ganz unrichtig meiner Weisung nicht zu entsprechen. Mein Bett, nämlich jenes in welchem ich in Schloß Orth geschlafen habe, soll jetzt leer bleiben. Sie werden mein Bettzeug, bei dem eben der Polster vorhanden ist, an die gleiche Adresse jedoch Eilgut schicken; dagegen werde ich das irrthümlich gesendete Linzer Bettzeug nach Gmunden zurücksenden. Da aus solchen Mißverständnissen große Auslagen hervorgehen, erwarte ich daß Sie in künftigen Fällen bei entstehenden Zweifel sich vorher anfragen, nöthigenfalls telegraphisch [.]". - Stärker angestaubt und fleckig und mit kleinen Einrissen in den Faltungen; Bl. 1 recto links oben mit rotem Farbstift numeriert "6".
