        Photograph Album of a Trip to England

      Oblong folio. Leather over flexible boards with blank black paper leaves. An album with 419 mounted photographs, 57 unmounted photographs, and one drawing. Many different sizes and processes, mostly gelatin-silver prints with a few cyanotypes. Photographs are mostly near fine, a few have creases or small damage, some are a bit oxidized, overall very good; the boards are near fine. The unmounted photographs are mostly captioned on the verso, perhaps the mounted ones are as well. Undated but circa 1890-1895. Perhaps slightly more than a dozen of the images are cabinet card portraits or commercial images, the rest are originals. Several of the unmounted images have the stamped back mark of Rev. Leonidas E. Coyle of Bridgeton, New Jersey, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church (also laid in is an interesting stamped label from a grocery and dry-goods store, presumably where the album was purchased). Most of the images are from a journey to England. The album begins with shipboard photos, but the major subject in England is churches and church ruins (Lincoln, Chester, Tintern Abbey, and many others), occasionally leavened by a small child or stodgy-looking clerical gentleman. The quality of the photographs are generally quite accomplished. Perhaps the last quarter of the album consists of portraits of young children with hoops, tennis gear, reading, canoeing, throwing a ball, with false mustaches, dressed as a soldier, with dogs and cats. Many seem quite pensive. Perhaps because of the fidgety nature of children, the childhood photographs seem of a lower artistic quality, but many are still quite charming. .

        A SELECTION OF 150 PLATES FROM SOWERBY'S THESAURUS CONCHYLIORUM OR GENERA OF SHELLS

      Sowerby, London 1890 - Superb collection of fine hand-coloured lithographic plates. A collection of plates with no title page or letterpress leaves (as with all copies) - title taken from the spine. Date of publication suggested by the British Library which possesses two issues with different plates. This copy, despite the title, has 149 lithographed plates of which 148 uncoloured (plates as follows: Murex 1-25; Matica 2-3; Calyptraedae 1-9; Tridacna 1-6; Fasciolaria 1-4; Pyrula 1- 3; 6, 5; Fuscus 1-14; Haliotis 1-13,19; Trophon 1-3; Pleropoda 1-2; Delphinula 1-2; Siliquaria 1-2; Planaxis 1-2; Oliva 6; Mitra 2-24, 26-28; Sigaretus 1, 3; Pleurotomaria 1-2; Phasianella 1-2; Janthinei 1-2; Natica 1, 4-9; Nerita 1-6; Helicinidæ 10,12-13; Gastrochoena, 28, 29 - Ficula - 1 unnumbered plate; Terebra 4 plates; voluta 3 plates [last uncoloured]). Bound in the original publisher's maroon cloth binding, with gilt lettering to the spine with shell vignette; binding very good with a little general wear and rubbing, cloth slightly nicked at head/tail of the spine and corners. Contents clean and tight, original pale yellow coated end papers, plates a little toned, nick on the bottom edge of Matica plate III; plates numbered in mansucript pencil to the top right corners. A very good copy of this very rare collection - see bibliographic note. (Bibliographic note: we can find no record of this collection, ever having been sold at auction. All copies listed on Copac are bound without a title page or letterpress. The list of the plates in the Leeds University copy does not match the contents of the Durham University Library copy and both are different to our copy. It is as if this title was bound up from spare plates, or perhaps the customer was able to influence the selection of plates. This title is not catalogued in Freeman's British Natural History Books.)

        Album of 89 original pen and ink drawings, probably used as the illustrations to captioned cartoons, all but a few signed in lower margins, the album lettered "Jllusztrációk 1890-1900 Cserépy 1"

      Budapest, 1890-1900. The drawings average about 7 x 5 inches; the album is 11-1/2 x 9 inches. . Original 3/4 calf, black cloth sides, spine perished, covers worn, a few minor tears without loss to the album's pages not affecting the mounted drawings, which are in fine condition . Pasted on the first page of this intriguing album is the cover of a 1900 art exhibition and the page listing this artist, his Budapest address, and the number of his exhibition entry. The drawings are carefully and competently executed, and are mostly of middle-class urban situations, generally involving two individuals in conversation, the settings suggesting that these are drawings for cartoons: smug waiter to irate diner, stage-door johnny to actress, street-vendor to prospect, petitioner to official, etc. Over 35 of the drawings show figures with unflattering, stereotyped anti-Semitic Jewish features, as was unfortunately not uncommon at that time in Europe and elsewhere. A fascinating glimpse of Hungarian turn-of-the-century life, and prejudice

        The Gentle Art of Making Enemies

      London: William Heinemann. 1890. First. First English edition, and the first authorized edition, containing a letter from William Heinemann stating the facts of the case, one of only ten special copies. Near fine in slightly chipped, publisher's brown, gilt-decorated wrappers, bound into similarly decorated, near fine brown morocco by Zaehnsdorf in 1925. Housed in a custom quarter-morocco slipcase with cloth chemise (the latter not shown in illustration). Inscribed by Whistler to his publisher: "William Heinemann - Publisher, Philosopher & Friend!-- [author's butterfly signature] Chelsea. Oct. 1890." Whistler's details of his libel suit against the critic John Ruskin, who in an 1877 published review of Whistler's painting "Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Falling Rocket" had written: "I have seen, and heard, much of Cockney impudence before now; but never expected to hear a coxcomb ask two hundred guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public's face." (What would Ruskin have made of Jackson Pollock?) The lawsuit nearly ruined both parties -- ultimately the artist was awarded a single farthing in damages and the court costs were split. Whistler had counted on many artists to stand witness at the trial but most declined, fearing the impact on their reputations. For the last several years of his life Heinemann's residence served as Whistler's home when he was in London. An extraordinary association. .

        A handsome oil portrait, signed by the artist, of Washington Irving.

      New York, circa 1890. - A fine portrait of Irving after a famous photographic portrait that proliferated during the author's final years. The genesis of the photograph is not certain, but it was believed to have been taken circa 1850 by John Plumbe, sometime associate of Mathew Brady. Brady is known to have sold copies of the portrait in various sizes at his studio. 27.5 x 21.5 inches in a simple (and probably original) wooden oak frame. On the back of the canvas are the large neat block letters identifying the subject. Charles A. Gray was born in Iowa in 1857. He painted portraits of Presidents McKinley and Garfield and playwright Eugene O'Neil, among others. This copy of the popular image of Irving was undoubtedly made to sell in his gallery. Gray made similar copies of other prominent American literary figures, including Harriet Beecher Stowe.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Giverny par Vernon, Eure, 20. II. 1890.. 8vo. 1 p.. To the art critic and collector Philippe Burty (1830-1890), confirming receipt of his contribution towards the purchase of Edouard Manet's painting "Olympia", which had caused an unprecedented outrage at the 1865 Paris Salon: "Mon cher Burty. Pour la bonne regularite je vous informe que j'ai recu de Mr Paul Gallimard les 25 que vous l'avez charge de me remettre pour votre souscription a l'achat de l'Olympia de Manet. Mes remerciements. Bien cordialement votre". - Seven years after the death of the artist, following a public subscription organized by Monet, the French government acquired Manet's pivotal and scandalous nude "Olympia", now displayed at the Musee d'Orsay, Paris. Paul Gallimard (1850-1929) was a renowned collector of French impressionists.

        Zum Zeitvertreib fur brave Knaben & Madschen Ein Ziehbilderbuch

      Verlag Braun & Schneider, Munich 1890 - Unpaginaged. 33 x 25 cm. Cover title, a pop-up book with eight full-page chromolithographed plates, each with a movable tab to set the scene in motion. The poems describing each plate are captioned: Die Gouvernante, Der Billardspieler, Der Schmetterlingsfanger, Der Gratulant, Der vergessene Hausshlussel Der durstige Kasperl, Der genfangene Turko, and Der Apfeldieb. "There is little doubt that the most elaborate and ingenious movables ever produced were those of the German Lothar Meggendorfer (1847-1925) made during the 1880s and 1890s.the mechanisms and operations of Meggedorfer's books - not to mention the originality of the figures -- are far superior to any others published before or since. The devices that operated the various figures in his books consisted of a series of inter-connecting cardboard levers sandwiched between the coloured illustration on the front of the oblong leaf and the dummy pasted behind it. The animated limbs and heads were cut-out models on the front of the picture, and moving the tab set the whole scene in motion [see: HAINING, Movable Books, pp.65-73]. Overall a clean copy with all tabs functional. Orig. publisher's pictorial boards colored in red, black and blue with cloth backstrip renewed. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cabinet Portrait Gallery Reproduced from Original Photographs by W.&D. Downey

      Cassell and Company 1890-1892, 1894, London - Hardcover. Four volumes of a five volume series. This set is missing Volume 3. Nonetheless, the remaining volumes hold a fascinating array of photographs of many of the luminaries of the time. Each volume contains 36 black and white portraits accompanied by a brief, adulatory biographical piece. Subjects are drawn from many spheres of British society and culture, with an emphasis on royalty, the aristocracy, the stage, and the arts. Among those included are Oscar Wilde, the Prince of Wales, Thomas Hardy, Sarah Bernhardt, Frederic Leighton, G. Bernard Shaw, and Czar Nicholas II. These are ex-library volumes with the bookplate of the City of York Public Library affixed to each volumes front pastedown. In what was probably an effort to discourage readers from taking photographs, the library applied an unobtrusive but visible embossed stamp to the margins of the photos, not affecting the portrait itself. Despite these factors the photographs are still interesting and attractive. Bound in brown cloth with floral borders to front boards and titles in gilt to front and to spines. Some bumping and rubbing, remains of small white stickers at spine bottoms, but otherwise in quite good condition. Some hinges are loose but holding. Save for the small embossed stamps, the photographs are in very good condition. Each volume is 95-96 pages. PHOTO/092608. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hand-colored lithograph 19 1/2” x 17” framed, framed to museum specifications in uv plexiglass and mounted with archival materials Frohawk was born in Norfolk, the youngest son of Francis William Frohawk. His career was spent creating paintings for private commissions, for periodicals and books, and his talents were diverse, he worked in oils, watercolors, lithography and wood engraving. Birds and insects were his two main interests in life and his drawings and paintings were largely devoted to these two subjects. Frohawk became a member of the British Ornithologists' Union in 1895 and a Fellow of the Entomological Society in 1891 (electing him a Special Life Fellow in 1926). During his long career, over 1,000 of his drawings were reproduced in books about birds. In addition, he provided illustrations for the Field Magazine (1881 onward), the Encyclopedia Britannica (illustrations of birds and reptiles), the British Museum Catalogue of Fishes and Proceedings of the Zoological Society. 80 of the artist’s original watercolors of birds are in the collection of the Natural History Museum, London.

        Autograph manuscript notebook of field experiments, 1890-91, 1891-92, and 1892-93. 130 leaves.

      1890-93 1890 - Raulin, Jules (1836-96). Champ d’expériences. Manuscript notebook. [130]pp., with diagrams and charts. N.p., 1890-93. 214 x 172 mm. Original embossed boards, cloth backstrip, some wear at spine and edges, a few leaves loose. Minor fraying at edges but very good. Scientific notebook written by plant physiologist Jules Raulin, who studied under Pasteur at the École Normale Supérieur and served as Pasteur’s first laboratory assistant at the school. Raulin collaborated with Pasteur on the latter’s investigations of fermentation, oxidation and silkworm disease; he also pursued his own research on the chemical role of minerals in plant nutrition, which led to important advances in agriculture. In 1876 Raulin was appointed professor of chemistry at the Faculté des Sciences in Lyon, and in 1883 he founded the École de Chimie Industrielle (School of Industrial Chemistry), where he spent most of his research time on agronomy and silk production. He was the first to identify the role of zinc in plant nutrition, and his experimental studies of the mold species Aspergillus niger led to the development of the nutritive medium known as Raulin's fluid. The present notebook contains extensive notes and diagrams detailing Raulin’s agricultural researches in the early 1890s, including information on soil chemistry, fertilizers, pest control, etc. At the end of the notebook are several pages devoted to silkworm culture.
