      1890. DITTRICH, Max. DER DEUTSCH-FRANZOSISCHE KRIEG 1870 UND 1871. Gedenk- Blatter in Wort und Bild an die Ehrentage der deutschen Nation. Dresden & New York: Druck & Verlag von H. G. Munchmeyer, [1890]. Profusely illustrated with color lithographs and wood-engraved text illustrations. 86pp., plus illus. 17 3/4 by 22 3/8 inches (45.5 x 55.2 cm.). Oblong folio, brown cloth, interlaced border stamped in black to boards, title and decoration stamped in gilt to upper board. This is a near contemporary account of the Franco-Prussian war, which resulted in the establishment of the Third Republic of France and the German Empire, produced in Germany. It is illustrated with 25 full-page lithographs depicting military actions; 24 of which are in brilliant color. The text pages have printed borders and numerous wood-engraved illustrations showing supplementary action and portraits of prominent people and leaders on both the French and German sides. The paper has toned at the edges and is brittle, showing several short tears and some chipping; the title page is torn in half, but both pieces are present. The volume is dampstained along the fore-edge, affecting the text and some of the plates. Two of the plates have closed tears which enter the image. The volume lacks the spine, although both boards are attached to the text block by the sewing cords; the cloth is moderately stained, and the gilt has dulled. This is an interesting historical item with impressive chromoliths; it is offered as is.

        Lover or Friend?

      1890. first edition. Home Life or Work Life?The Eternal Question for WomenThe Victorian AnswerCAREY, Rosa Nouchette. Lover or Friend? In Three Volumes. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1890. First edition. Three octavo volumes (7 1/8 x 4 1/2 in; 180 x 113 mm). [4], 324; [4], 310; [4], 309, [1] pp. Publisher's original half brown cloth over patterned cloth boards. Gilt lettered spines. Publisher's original design gray printed endpapers. Spines very slightly cocked, otherwise fine.OCLC/KVK record only nine copies of the first edition in library holdings worldwide. ABPC has no auction records for any edition of Lover Or Friend? as far back into the past as 1923.A prime example of "safe fiction" for girls of the 19th century, which is to say highly conservative with an emphasis on the domestic duties of women, which take precedence over all other considerations and responsibilities.A very popular novelist in her time but now long forgotten, Rosa Nouchette Carey's ambition was "to try to do good and not harm by my works, and to write books which any mother can give a girl to read" (as cited by Black, Notable Women Authors). As such, the question Lover or Friend? - a suggestive title suggesting more than it delivers - aims at the latter, safely navigating the young female reader away from potential indelicacies to rest ashore a pure land not without its own difficulties, and it is there that the book still speaks to women stepping into the modern world yet fettered to the old, and frustrated. Juggling the roles of wife, mother, and working woman remains as much a daily struggle for women in 2011 as it was in 1890, though Carey's answer, concentrate on the domestic front, retreat from the other, may rankle 21st century feminists.Carey practiced what she preached. Though she enjoyed writing, she kept it a friend, not a lover."I do not think that I have known any author who has made her writing - the real work of her life - so secondary a matter as has Rosa Carey. She has so consistently lived her religion, so to speak, that family duty and devotion to its many members have always come first" (Helen Marion Burnside, as cited by Black)."Rosa Nouchette Carey (1840–1909), novelist, was born at Stratford-le-Bow, London, on 24 September 1840... As a child she told stories to her younger sister, and in this way created the plot of her first novel, Nellie's Memories (1868). The publisher's advertisements suggest that it sold over 52,000 copies. It was followed by many other novels, marked by pious tone, domestic subject matter, and a large number of rather unmemorable characters, which were staples of the market in safe fiction for girls during the last third of the nineteenth century..."Yet, gushing and unpretending as her work is, she does depict the frustrations of such women with some sympathy, exploring the pains of living up to high ideals and the psychic cost of self-abnegation..."Carey's literary career got going... in her late twenties. After the death of her mother in 1870 Carey and her remaining unmarried sister went to keep house for a widowed brother and look after his children; after the sister married and went to live in Kirkby Stephen, Westmorland (which provided a setting for some of Carey's fiction), the brother died and Carey was left in charge of the children. "As well as writing thirty-three three-volume novels, she was on the staff of the Girls' Own Paper, for which she wrote eight serials. She does not seem to have moved in literary circles, although she was a close friend of the novelist Ellen Wood (Mrs Henry Wood). The poet Helen Marion Burnside, who also worked for the Girls' Own Paper, lived with her from about 1875, and edited The Rosa Nouchette Carey Birthday Book (1901). When Carey's sister was widowed she returned to keep house for the two authors. Rosa Carey died of lung cancer at her home, Sandilands, Keswick Road, Putney, London, on 19 July 1909" (Oxford DNB)

        Costumes de la Suède et de la Norvège.

      Stockholm. ca. 1890. Portfolio 22 x 16,5 cm. Card boards 21 x 16 cm. Actual photos 9 x 6 cm. 15 hand coloured albumen photographs, laid in loose in a cloth portfolio. Blue blind stamped cloth portfolio with title in gilt at the front board. Printed yellow frame around the photographs. Mounted title below each photograph. Some wear to the spine of the portfolio. Ties missing. Slight browning to the card boards. Guard papers missing, a little residue at the verso where the guard papers were attached. Photographs in fine condition.. The photographs are very nicely coloured. Six depicts soldiers, six swedish folk costumes, three laplanders and one depict norwegian folk costume (Hardanger). In the late 1850s the firm Eurenius & Quist was formed and became one of the earliest professional photo studios in Sweden. The firm had almost instant success and was ready to take advantage of the "carte-de-visité" craze of the 1860s. The partnership probably ended in the late 1880s, whereafter Quist continued by himself. All the photos in the present portfolio are marked with Qusit onlly, which make it probable that it was published in the late 1880s or early 1890s

        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 "JllusztrciUk 1890-1900 CserEpy 1"

      Budapest 1890 1900 Budapest, 1890-1900. The drawings average about 7 x 5 inches; the album is 11-1/2 x 9 inches. . Original3/4 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

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, Potsdamer Str. 134 c, 24. I. 1890. Gr.-8°. 2 Seiten. Doppelblatt. Etwas verspäteter Dankesbrief für Glückwünsche und Geschenke zum 70. Geburtstag: »[...] Meine hochverehrteste gnädigste Frau, [Danziger] Goldwasser und Verse und heute erst meinen Dank dafür [...]. Daß Sie meiner freundlich gedacht, war zu liebenswürdig, um so liebenswürdiger als ich Ihnen durch meine Kritik über Fräulein Schanzer's 'Jungfrau von Orleans' Veranlassung zum Mißfallen gegeben hatte. Aber ich darf sagen, ich habe vor drei, vier Monaten die Scharte auszuwetzen gesucht, als Frau v. Bülow in Ibsens 'Gespenstern' auftrat. Ich glaube, daß sie (Frau v. B.) mehr dazu angethan ist, eine moderne kluge Frau, als eine mittelalterliche Glaubensheldin darzustellen. [...]«. - Empfehlungsformel und Unterschrift an den Rand geschrieben, wie so oft. - Fontanes Vorliebe für »Danziger Goldwasser« offenbart sich u. a. in einem Tischgespräch des alten Stechlin, der nach dem Mittagsessen diesen Liquer einem Cognac vorzieht. - Die Schauspielerin Marie Schantzer (1857-1841) heiratete den Musiker Hans von Bülow und wurde dessen zweite Ehegattin. Fontane besprach Schillers »Jungfrau« am 5. VIII. 1880 und Ibsens »Gespenster« am 29. IX. 1889 in der »Vossischen Zeitung«. - Stellenw. leicht fleckig. Geringe Knickfalten, Mittelfalz etwas verfärbt. - Fontane erhielt eine Unmenge von Glückwünschen zu seinem 70. Geburtstag und schrieb hunderte von Dankes- und Antwortbriefen. Der hier vorliegende ist bis dato unbekannt, unveröffentlicht und nicht im HBV verzeichnet. Bei Roland Berbig, Fontane-Chronik, S. 3078 aufgeführt: »F[ontane] rechtfertigt seine Kritik an der Schauspielerin Marie Schanzer in Schiller 'Jungfrau von Orleans' [...], die der Adressatin missfallen hat«.
