        Firenze Queen of the Turf 1890 by Glenelg dam Florida. Owned by J.B. Haggin Esq

      Boussod Valadon & Co, successors to Goupil & Co, New York, Paris, London and The Hague 1890 - A fine hand-coloured portrait of a filly whose prize money totalled $112,471 between 1886 and 1891. She won 47 of her 82 starts during this period. "Firenze was a small filly bred by Dan Swigert in 1884. She was sired by Glenelg out of the mare Florida, by Virgil. James Ben Ali Haggin purchased Firenze for $2,600. Small in stature, she grew to only 15 hands, but her racing presence was large. At 3 Firenze won all the major stakes for fillies and at 4, 5, and 6 she was named Champion Handicap Female. As champion filly or mare for four consecutive years, Firenze raced against colts 69 times and beat them regularly over all distances. She beat the mighty Hanover at 1 1/4, 1 1/2, and 1 3/4 miles; beat Kingston twice, and gave The Bard his only defeat of 1888. Rider, trainer, racing official, and Hall of Fame member James McLaughlin knew such great fillies as Miss Woodford, Imp, Beldame, Artful, Pan Zareta, and Regret, but claimed that Firenze was the best of all." (National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame). Photogravure, coloured by hand, by Goupil & Co., after Stull.

        ALBUM DE BOTANIQUE.

      N.P., (France) 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. Original leather backed pebbled cloth album with the decorative intials , M.P. embossed on upper cover; covers scuffed, soiled and faded; some evidence of old damping on covers NOT affecting interior; original moire endsheets; manuscript in ink on versos, watercolor or gouache illustrations with penned captions on rectos; with original blue cloth ribbon marker; album leaves very clean, with just some dusting at edges.

        Fete Foraine

      Paris: A. Capendu. Wraps. Very Good. Scarce juvenile title celebrating French carnival. N.d., circa 1890.Small folio-sized, 31 by 25 cm. 16 pp., including wraps. Vivid chromolithographs, whose artful juxtapositions aid in transporting us back to the nineteenth century carnival and to see the kinetic energy and color of such occasions through a child's eyes. Here is the wonderment without the grime and sordidness that was surely the underside of peripatetic productions. The illustrations bring to life "les Animaux Savants", the wild animals, the organ grinder, the souvenir vendors, Punch and Judy, the minstrel band, the jugglers, the balancing acts, Indianqs, the monkeys, balloons, and then such innocent fun as cycling. No copies located on OCLC. Light soling scattered.Minor roughness by the spine.

        Privately assembled album of natural history drawings and lithographs from the library of the natural historian Francis Day

      Kenilworth House, Cheltenham: circa, 1890. Quarto, a privately assembled album of 123 engraved and lithographic plates of which 23 are skilfully hand-coloured, front pastedown endpaper with label of the Day family bequest to the Cheltenham Public Library; a very good copy indeed in later nineteenth-century half calf, expertly rebacked. Private album of Francis Day. A remarkable volume of 123 natural history illustrations, many unpublished, from the personal collection of the ichthyologist Francis Day (1829-1889) with his working notes on many of the images. Most of the images are proofs before letters, and in the absence of descriptive text it would require a good deal of further research and specialist knowledge to accurately identify all of the species; however, given Day's interest in the subcontinent and the Indian Ocean, no doubt many are from the region. Several of the ornithological proofs are signed by the accomplished engraver Charlotte Gray (daughter of the respected conchologist Maria Emma Gray and step-daughter of prolific naturalist John Edward Gray, the zoological keeper at the British Museum who worked with Charles Darwin and many others). The album reflects the wide interests of Day, appointed as Inspector-General of Fisheries in India and Burma in the mid-Victorian era, who was widely respected as for his knowledge of the natural history of the subcontinent. The album includes mammals, quadrupeds both familiar and exotic, birds, fish, insects, crabs, arachnids and insects. Of special interest are highly detailed lithographs detailing the highly unusual nests built by tropical birds. Significantly, a good number of the plates in the collection are by the eminent London based natural history publisher Treuttel, Wurtz and Company. Some of the plates are published as early as 1822, but Day evidently used them as the basis for his own observations, with frequent annotations in his hand regarding habitat and differences between specimens, making this an interesting working archive. The plates include five magnificent lithographs of Australian birds, some of which are beautifully hand-coloured. The Australian ornithology plates comprise a magnificent raptor (here captioned the 'Australian Fishing Eagle') followed by three magnificent hand-coloured lithographs illustrating an Australian owl, a frogmouth and a brush-turkey. Also hand-coloured in warm coppery tones is the unfortunately named Troglodyte Beach Rail, a native waterbird of New Zealand. In this collection both the brush-turkey and Troglodyte Beach Rail are included in duplicate (as coloured and uncoloured plates). The Australian lithographs were produced for the Transactions of the Linnean Society, but some are certainly Day's own proofs of the published images (were these plates in fact ever published?). A ticket on the front paste-down notes that this album was presented to the then Cheltenham Public Library by the "Misses Day, as a memorial of their late father". A full listing of the contents of the album is available upon request.

      . 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.

        Telephone Despatch Co. (Bell?s Patents)...List of Subscribers Connected With the Central Office Exchange System

      Boston: Telephone Despatch Co., n.d. [c. 1890]. Original printed wrappers; 52 pages; minor wear; inscribed by the company manager. One of the earliest Boston phone directories, listing about 800 subscribers, most of them commercial enterprises, especially banks, insurance companies and railroads. Not all of the subscribers are listed with numbers, although by this time the front wrapper requests that ?Subscribers will confer a favor by using the numbers, as possible, in calling for connections, viz.: 286 for 94, naming your own number last.? Apparently others supplied the operator with the name of the subscriber who they were trying to reach. A few years earlier, this company employed the first female operator (boys and young men were found to be too rambunctious for this task), and by 1900 only women would be employed in that capacity. Ten offices are listed, ?always open, day or night.? As high-tech as this system was for its time, even the most primitive automation had yet to be deployed.

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

      1890-93. <p>Raulin, Jules (1836-96). Champ d&#146;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.</p> <p>Scientific notebook written by plant physiologist Jules Raulin, who studied under Pasteur at the École Normale Supérieur and served as Pasteur&#146;s first laboratory assistant at the school. Raulin collaborated with Pasteur on the latter&#146;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&#39;s fluid.</p> <p>The present notebook contains extensive notes and diagrams detailing Raulin&#146;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.

Vermutlich um 1890 auf einer Studienreise nach Tirol entstanden.

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.

        The golden bough. 2 vols., original cloth

      London: Macmillan, 1890. London: Macmillan, 1890. <p>Frazer, James George (1854-1941). The golden bough. 2 vols. xii, [2], 409, [1]; [6], 407pp. Frontispiece in Vol. I. London: Macmillan, 1890. 227 x 145 mm. (uncut). Original cloth, Vol. I front cover a bit spotted, spines a little dull. Edges a bit frayed, but very good. Bookplate of Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944) in both volumes.</p><p>First Edition of Frazer&#146;s classic comparative study of mythology and religion. Frazer&#146;s work was not only &#147;a foundational text for the new discipline of social anthropology, shaping the issues around which the discipline would develop, but its impact was felt just as powerfully in philosophy, theology and psychology, in the social disciplines of sociology and politics and in literary and art criticism. The roll call of those who were influenced by or responded to The Golden Bough includes many of the most prominent and radical thinkers of the period, including Malinowski and Durkheim in social anthropology, Bergson and Ryle in philosophy, Freud in psychology and Spengler and Toynbee in philosophical history. . . . Equally, the search for the ritual and archetypal significances of works of art, initiated in the 1890s by Jane Harrison and Gilbert Murray, who applied the methods of The Golden Bough to classical literature, was to culminate in the mid-century in some of the most important of modern approaches to the study of English literature in the work of such critics as Wilson Knight in Britain and Northrop Frye in North America&#148; (Craig, p. vii). This copy is from the library of noted author and literary critic Arthur Quiller-Couch, editor of the monumental Oxford Book of English Verse. Craig, &#147;Introduction,&#148; in Frazer, The Golden Bough (2010 reprint of the 1890 ed.), pp. vii-xxvi. Printing and the Mind of Man 374. </p>
