        Flowers of the Holy Land - Blumen aus dem Heiligen Land. Herbarium mit zahlreichen privat eingebundenen Orig.-Photographien einer Reise nach Palästina 1907.

      Ohne Ortsangabe (wohl Jerusalem), ohne Verlegerangabe (wahrscheinlich American Colony), o. J. (um 1890-1900, die Photographien von 1907).. 16 kartonierte unnumerierte Tafelblätter mit Trockenblumen und zahlreichen Original-Photographien sowie einer handgezeichneten Karte auf dem Frontispiz verso. 8° quer (Format ca. 20,5x27,5 cm, Orig.-Halblederband mit Blindprägungen auf schweren, Olivenholzdeckeln.. Hier die große Ausgabe der bekannten Jerusalem-Erinnerungsalben, die mit schönen Trockenblumen-Arrangements ausgestattet wurden. Mit teils oppulenten Arbeiten in detailverliebter Kleinarbeit von Hand hergestellte Motive, wie beispielsweise ein Füllhorn, der türkische Halbmond, ein großer Blumenstrauß, ein Anker und die al Aqsa-Moschee mit der Goldkuppel etc. Mit vielen privaten Original-Photographien einer Reise durch Palästina! Auf dem Titelblatt eine kleine Panoramaansicht der Altstadt, mittig die al Aqsa-Moschee, gegenüber den Trockenblumen immer eine Photographie mit Ansichten von Ausgrabungsstätten, weiter hinten eine Ansicht der Bahntrasse der Bagdadbahn mit einem betenden Soldaten am Gleisrand, eine Gruppenaufnahme der rastenden Reisegruppe bei Samaria, am Ende dann auf zwei Seiten acht Photographien mit einigen Landschaftsaufnahmen und Photos von Jerusalem, u.a. auch vom Bahnhof dort. Insgesamt sind 21 Photographien mit dem Format ca. 9x11,5 cm und besagte Panoramaufnahme die aus zwei zusammengesetzten Photos ein Format von ca. 8,5x18,5 cm aufweist. Mit einer hübschen, gekonnt gezeichneten Buntstift-Tuschezeichnung mit den eindrucksvollsten Gebäuden der Region. Durchgehend wurde alles mit älterer Tinte und einer weiteren Hand mit blauer Tinte beschriftet. Interessant ist hierbau auch die sehr genaue Bezeichnung der verschiednen für die Blumenbilder verwendeten Blumennamen, die der Vorbesitzer mit dazugeschrieben hat! Der Einband wird wohl, wie auch bei den kleinen Alben aus Olivenholz hergestellt worden sein. Unser Exemplar hat auf beiden Deckeln hübsch ornamental farbig verzierten Intarsieneinlagen, auf dem Hinterdeckel steht Jerusalem (darunter nochmal auf Hebräisch). Auf dem Vorderdeckel ein blindgeprägtes Kreuz umrahmt von vier kleinen Kreuzen. - Der Lederrücken mit älterem Nummernaufkleber, oben und unten und auch mittig etwas rissig und berieben, dadurch in der Bindung etwaws gelockert, aber nicht lose. Die Deckel mit vereinzelten Bruchspuren (ohne daß der Deckel stark angebrochen wurde), teils etwas bekratzt. Durchgehend gebräunt, teils etwas fingerfleckig, einige wenige Trockenblumenbilder mit Absprengseln und teils angebrochenen Pflanzenteilen. - Das Titelblatt ist im unteren Berich, auf dem der Verlegername normalerweise sichtbar ist, die Panoramaphotographie montiert. Nach einem Exemplar der UNCA Library, das auf der Homepage auch abgebildet wird, gehen wir davon aus, daß es sich um ein Exemplar der American Colony in Jerusalem handelt und der Verfasser F. (Frederick) Vester sein muß. Vester war Sohn eines deutschen Missionars der nach Jerusalem ausgewandert war, er heiratete in die Familie Spafford ein, die wiederum die American Colony in Jerusalem gründeten. Diese war eine Gruppe sogenannter christlicher Utopisten, die in Handarbeit, ev. nach Vorbildern ähnlicher Alben, diese Blumenbilder-Alben schufen und sie an Touristen verkauften. Bei einem Vergleich mit einem Exemplar der UNCA Library konnten wir feststellen, daß es Überschneidungen in den Arbeiten gibt, es aber auch, wie in unserem Fall Motive gibt die nur bei einem der Exemplare auftauchen. Unser Bild mit der al-Aqsa-Moschee kommt im Exemplar der UNCA Library beispielsweise nicht vor! Insgesamt eine sehr dekorative Handarbeit von unikalem Charakter!

        LIVERPOOL: Original Signed & Dated Watercolour with Verso Presentation:] Presented to A.W. Drake in memory of his son Frank S. Drake "the Steble Fountain" and view of Public Offices Dale St., Liverpool, 8th Nov./ 90 Arthur Cox.

      1890 - 1890. Watercolour ca. 44.5x34 cm (17 ½ x 13 ½ in). Watercolour under glass in a period elaborate molded gilt wood frame. A very good watercolour. The original frame with signs of wear but still in very good condition. Watercolour not examined out of the frame. This attractive watercolour by Liverpool artist Arthur Cox shows a smog filled industrial Victorian Liverpool at the end of the 19th Century. "Towards the end of the 19th century, this was the only undeveloped portion of land between St George's Hall and the buildings in William Brown Street. In 1877 Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Fell Steble offered £1000 (£80,000 as of 2014) to the Improvement Committee of Liverpool City Council towards the erection of a fountain on the site. Steble had been Mayor of Liverpool from 1845 to 1847. The fountain was designed by Michel Joseph Napoléon Liénard and was unveiled in 1879. The casting from which the fountain was derived had originally been designed for the Paris Exposition of 1867. At the opening ceremony in 1879 the mayor turned the fountain on with a silver key presented by Steble, but the water pressure was low and the effect was "dismal". The water was pumped by a steam pump in the basement of St George's Hall, and the noise from this tended to disrupt the proceedings in the courts above. The steam pump was later replaced by an electric pump. The fountain was restored in 1992 when the Tall Ships' Race came to Liverpool" (Wikipedia).

      London - Macmillan and Co., 1890. London - Macmillan and Co., 1890 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A great collection of Kingsley's works in a decorative binding that will look beautiful on any shelf. Bound in half leather and marbled paper-covered boards with gilt lettering and decoration. Six Volumes. This collection contains Two Years Ago, Yeast, Alton Locke, Hypatia, Westward Ho, andHereward the Wake. With A. J. Combridge & Co. bookseller labels to the front pastedown. Kingsley is still remembered as a children's writer, mainly for The Water-Babies. Westward Ho! and Hereward the Wake, like The Water-Babies, have been frequently reprinted and adapted, and have survived, a little precariously, as juvenile classics. Alton Locke has retained a more specialised academic readership as a Victorian social-problem novel. Literary criticism has become more tolerant of Kingsley's eccentricities of form and vivid incoherence, if not of his outlook on race, class, and gender -ODNB. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is only mild wear to the extremities, with just mild rubbing and edge wear with slight loss, and with sunning to the spines. Internally the pages have browning to the edges and very occasional foxing, prominent to the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is very good..

        ANDAMAN ISLANDS, INDIAN OCEAN]. [Two Original Watercolours of the Andaman Islands, Titled on Verso]: 1) Ross Islands from the Aberdeen District Officers' House, Port Blair; and 2) Government Rest House, Mount Harriet - Port Blair.

      1890 - Ca. 1890s. Two watercolours on paper, each ca. 14x22,5 cm (5 ½ x 8 ¾ in). Period manuscript captions in pencil on verso. Later matting. A very good pair. Interesting original watercolour views of Port Blair, the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands (India) and the centre of the infamous penal colony during the British rule. Apart from an unsuccessful attempt to establish a colony on the islands in 1789, Britain hadn't risen territorial claims to the Andamans until the 1850s. In 1858 a British penal colony was set up for dissenters and independence fighters from the Indian subcontinent. Since 1972 the Andaman and Nicobar islands were administered by a chief commissioner at Port Blair. The infamous Cellular Jail was constructed in Point Blair in 1896-1906. Drawn in the midst of the colonial period, the watercolours present interesting views of the Andaman Islands, including "Government Rest House" - summer headquarters of the British administration located on a beautiful Mount Harriet, the third highest peak of the islands. Another watercolour is taken from the Aberdeen District Officers' House and has a great view of the Ross Island where the British administrative headquarters were settled. The artist, Sir Hastings Hadley D'Oyly, 11th Baronet of Shottisham (succeeded in 1921) lived and served in the British India. He gained the rank of Captain in the service of the Bihar Light Horse and later served as a deputy commissioner of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

        Oeuvres Choisies de Massillon

      Paris - Garnier Freres, 1890. Paris - Garnier Freres, 1890 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leatherbound volume with marble paper covered boards and marble paper pastedowns. Jean Baptiste Massillon (June 24, 1663 - September 28, 1742) was a French Catholic bishop and famous preacher, Bishop of Clermont from 1717 until his death. His popularity was probably because in his sermons he lays little stress on dogmatic questions, but treats generally of moral subjects, in which the secrets of the human heart and the processes of man's reason are described with poetical feeling. He has usually been contrasted with his predecessor Bourdaloue, the latter having the credit of vigorous denunciation, Massillon that of gentle persuasiveness. Besides the Petit Carme, a sermon which he delivered before the young king Louis XV in 1718, his sermons on the Prodigal Son, on the small number of the elect, on death, for Christmas Day, and for the Fourth Sunday in Advent, may be perhaps cited as his masterpieces. His funeral oration on King Louis XIV is only noted now for the opening sentence: Dieu seul est grand. But in truth Massillon is singularly free from inequality. His great literary power, his reputation for benevolence, and his known toleration and dislike of doctrinal disputes caused him to be much more favourably regarded than most churchmen by the philosophes of the 18th century. This volume is in French. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including fading to the spine and rubbing to the boards. Internally the pages are slightly age-toned with the occasional handling mark and odd spot. Overall the volume is in good only condition..

        The Tragic Muse

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1890. London: Macmillan and Co., 1890 First English edition. Three volumes. One of 500 copies. Publisher's dark blue cloth, lettered in gilt, black coated endpapers. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, bright gilt, former owner's inscription to the front pastedowns, scattered spotting, otherwise bright and fresh pages, upper covers have evidence of bookplate removal, spines slightly starting at front hinge of Volume I, otherwise sturdy and intact spines. Overall, bright and attractive, in unsophisticated original cloth. Edel & Laurence A34b. Originally published serially in seventeen installments in the Atlantic Monthly from January 1889-May 1890, The Tragic Muse was Henry James' longest novel to date. The plot tells of two aspiring artists, painter Nick Dormer and actress Miriam Rooth, who endeavor to find both artistic and commercial success. The large cast of characters that encounter Nick and Miriam throughout the text comprise a panoramic view of nineteenth century English society. James originally offered The Tragic Muse to Macmillan, but was dissatisfied with their offers. Accordingly, the first edition of this text was published on June 7, 1890, by Houghton, Mifflin, and Co., and was followed by this first English edition on June 28th of the same year. Notorious for heavily editing his serialized stories before book publication, James naturally made many revisions to The Tragic Muse, and his dual publication lead to slightly different revisions in the American and English editions. Notably, the use of punctuation, specifically commas, varies significantly in the Atlantic Monthly, Houghton, and Macmillan editions, with the heaviest use in the Atlantic Monthly and lightest in Macmillan. As James was known for using commas sparingly, this first English edition most closely mirrors the author's natural writing style.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
