        Lebende Bilder

      Munich: Verlag Braun & Schneider, 1890. Hardcover. Orig. publisher's pictorial boards colored in a multitude of colors, black cloth spine. Very good. Unpaginaged. 32 x 24 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: Herr Stabel, Die Jungser Kochin, Der Klavierspieler, Der Schreiber, Der Herr Magister, Der Tyroler Sanger, Fritzchen und der Kakadu, & Das naschafte Katzlein. "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, very slight rubbing to extremities, bookseller label, paste-down front endpaper of Brunnquell & Rohde, Milwaukee, WI.

        In Darkest Africa

      Charles Scribner's, NY 1890 - or the Quest, Rescue and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria. 1890 NY Two volumes: 429 and 472 pp. Edition de luxe limited to 250 numbered copies signed by Stanley. 6 etchings, 150 woodcut ill, 3 folding maps. Stanley was interested in establishing a British Protectorate in East Africa and at the same time trying to rescue the Governor of the Equatorial Province in Egypt. Stanley arranged to travel up the Congo and then to Albert N'yanza, a horrible, hazardous journey. Eventually reaching his goal, during the equally perilous return trip Stanley discovered the Mountains of the Moon (Ruwenzori) and a new lake that he named Lake Albert. Only slightly over 1/3 of the original group returned alive. This is considered one of the greatest accounts of travel writing, especially of African exploration. Printed on thick deckle edged paper and bound in half gilt black leather over thick gilt vellum boards. The set is in usually nice condition, the leather showing very little wear, the raised spine bands show no wear and the corners only the tiniest bit of wear. The vellum boards are lightly soiled but much cleaner than usual. The text block is fine. Overall a solid VG+ to near fine set. See pictures on our website. DeLuxe Ltd to 500 numbered/signed copies.

        The Poetical works of Thomas Moore. Reprinted from the early editions, with explanatory notes, &c.

      London: Frederick Warne, [ca. 1890-1900?]. London:: Frederick Warne, [ca. 1890-1900?].. Small 8vo. xii, 675 pp. Frontispiece portrait, illustrations. Original full black blind-stamped morocco, spine bands and decorative gilt-spine, all edges gilt, with �FOREDGE PAINTING� stamped on the spine foot. Near fine. �Naughty but nice,� erotic fore-edge painting. The painting is set within an oval, surrounded by a dull-mustard yellow wash and black-lined outline framing of the scene. The view depicts a male and woman copulating (apparently in a waiting room or a living room), with a person�s head poking in through the door and showing their �shock� of the event depicted. The presence of the �FOREDGE PAINTING� stamping on the foot of the spine is usually indicative of a painting that is contemporary with the binding. This binding is clearly the original for the volume, but the painting is suggestive of ca. 1990s, thus it seems probable that the gilt-stamped titling for the painting was added later.

Cet ouvrage constitue le tome 60 de la "Bibliothèque scientifique internationale". Fernand Lagrange (1845-1909) étudia les exercices physiques en fonction de la physiologie organique, et non de la mécanique, ce qui était novateur pour l'époque. Intérieur portant des rousseurs

        Niagara Falls: Thirty-Six Fine Views from Negatives Made Especially For This Work

      Unpag. volume containing 36 leaves of collotype plates depicting views of the Falls, many in winter, including Prospect Point, Horseshoe Fall, Cave of the Winds, the American and Canadian Falls, whirlpools, Dufferin Islands, bridges, and the Falls under snow and ice. Ink stamp and pencil notation to front endpaper. 4to. Cloth, bumped corners, professionally repaired with cloth tape along spine and to endpapers. N.p. (Niagara Falls?) n.d. (circa 1890's). Together with two photographs on cardstock from H. F. Nielson, "Manufacturers of all kinds of paper & glass views of Niagara Falls" Tourism to Niagara Falls became popular in the 19th century, and by the middle of the century was the main industry in the area. The first suspension bridge over the Niagara River was built by Charles Ellet in 1848, and supplanted by another suspension bridge in 1855. After the Civil War, the New York Central Railroad advertised Niagara Falls as a vacation and honeymoon destination, and as a result, the first railway bridge was constructed in 1886. The first steel archway bridge, the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge, was completed in 1897. It still carries cars, trains, and pedestrians through Canadian Customs Border Control today. As of June 2017, WorldCat locates two holdings in North American institutions.

        Hedda Gabler. [Skuespil i fire akter]

      København [Copenhagen]: Glydendalske Boghandels Forlag (F. Hegel & Son), 1890. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. First Printing of perhaps Ibsen's "most frequently performed play in the modern theatre." (PMM) In Danish (then the literary language of both Denmark and Norway). Small 8vo: [4],236pp. Publisher's green cloth (copies were also identically bound in red, brown, and grey, no known priority), front cover elaborately blocked in gilt and black, back board with blind-stamped borders and central publisher's logo, floral patterned endpapers, gilt edges. A brilliant copy, barely rubbed to spine ends. PMM 375. First trade edition, preceded by twelve copies printed in London, in Norwegian, "under a well-intentioned illusion that this was necessary for copyright protection." (PMM) Published on December 16, 1890, although the play only premiered on January 31, 1891, at the Königliches Residenz-Theater, in Munich. Together with The Lady from the Sea and Rosmersholm, Hedda Gabler forms the Munich trilogy (Ibsen lived in Munich when he wrote them.) The heroines, Ellida, Rebecca, and Hedda, are all determined women, but only Ellida is able to achieve freedom from the consequences of her past actions. Hedda, who, as the play opens, has just married the dull academic Tesman to avoid a spinster's life, realizes that she has trapped herself in a life of impossible tedium, with suicide as her only way out. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Dirty Jim

      [Hampstead, London]: , 1890. "Dirty Jim" A Fine Original Pen, Ink and Watercolor for Little Ann GREENAWAY, Kate, artist. "Dirty Jim". Original pen, ink and watercolor drawing for "Little Ann". Signed with initials at lower left. No date, no place [Hampstead, London, 1883]. Landscape (10 x 8 3/8 inches; 254 x 213 mm.). Image size: 4 3/8 x 3 1/2 inches; 111 x 89 mm. This fine watercolor appears on page 24 of Little Anne. London, 1883. "There was one little Jim, 'Tis reported of him, And must be to his lasting disgrace, That he never was seen With hands at all clean, Nor yet ever clean was his face. His friends were much hurt To see so much dirt, And often they made him quite clean; But all was in vain, He got dirty again, And not at all fit to be seen. It gave him no pain To hear them complain, Nor his own dirty clothes to survey: His indolent mind No pleasure could find In tidy and wholesome array. The idle and bad, Like this little lad, May love dirty ways, to be sure: But good boys are seen To be decent and clean, Although they are ever so poor." "From early 1883 onwards, Ruskin became the most important influence in Kate's life. He wrote to her "My dear Kate... when can you come and see Mountain Spring? Another year, you must come for the snow drops; but it must be a year of bright frost, not black rain... April would be best but I want to be sure of you, and I know you cannot command your time in the chances of book work - so I'll fit my plans to yours." ...Meanwhile she was bust preparing her next book, encouraged by her recent financial success. In late January Evans sent a cheque for £287.17.6d., marked 'half profit in 76,403 copies of those books in print' - which included recent German editions of the Birthday Book and Mother Goose. She accepted Evans's suggestion and planned to illustrate fifty favourite childhood verses by Jane and Ann Taylor, for a book she called Little Ann and Other Poems. Kate Greenaway arrived at Ruskin's home, Brantwood on April 10th, 1883. ...she left , not a fortnight, but nearly a month later, feeling she knew Ruskin the man - an enigmatic figure with piercing blue eyes, a caressing voice and the limitless charm that helped her to overcome her timidity and her desire to return to London. He made every possible effort to make her comfortable, and flattered her by listening to her ideas on art, nature and life... Kate wandered freely about the grounds, drawing flowers or the dancing children of Coniston Hall; her work only occasionally encouraged by Ruskin. Although he had 'all kinds of plans in my head for her', he sank back into a growing moodiness that Kate noticed but tried to ignore." Because of these strained silences, when her visit ended Ruskin was doubtful of its results. He wrote in his diary: 'May 8 Tuesday... Kate Greenaway went home yesterday - I fear not much wiser for her visit. But Kate could only recall her ecstatic happiness at Brantwood, as she wrote to Lily Evans how she regretted leaving... While waiting for news of Ruskin's lecture, Kate accepted further commissions. Austin Dobson, who was by this time a great admirer of her work, persuaded her to illustrate two poems he had written that had been inspired by her children. Their collaborations appeared twice, in the January and the May issues of the Magazine of Art, the latter being a full page verse description of Kate's inimitable world, with Greenaway children scattered in the margin... Kate also worked daily on Little Ann and the year's Almanack, all the while looking out for a letter from Ruskin... but it was Stacy Marks who gave her the assurances that Ruskin now failed to offer. He wrote to thank her for Little Ann, which he thought was 'on the whole, I might say entirely, your best book..." (Rodney Engen. Kate Greenaway. A Biography, pp. 86-104). One of the few artists to gain true celebrity from illustrating children's books, Kate Greenaway was one of the most influential illustrators of her age. Greenaway, along with Randolph Caldecott and Walter Crane, revolutionized illustration. Popular in both Europe and the United States, Greenaway has remained highly sought after, even among contemporary children's book collectors. (Vic Zoschak).

      Schubert & Sudhoff, "Michael Bapst von Rochlitz" in: Neues Archiv für Sächsige Geschichte XI (1890), pp. 86-88; ad 1: Brüning 612; VD16, B300; ad 2: Dürling 462; VD16, B296. First edition of a medical and alchemical recipe book intended for use at home, combined with the first edition of its sequel, devoted to poisons. As a medical amateur, Bapst based his recipe book mostly on other authors and stated in a later publication that he had not time to test all his prescriptions, and therefore "it may well have happened that now and then there be some mistakes" (Schubert & Sudhoff). If thereupon the reader would discover any incorrect recipe, this would be entirely the original author's fault. Since the book could be consulted for such diverse matters as nose-bleeding, tooth-ache, the taming of leopards, fishing, invisible writing and giving copper the appearance of silver, this is entirely understandable. In his second volume Bapst followed up on the formula of the first book and gave advise on spider stings, driving out wolves, bites of lions, fishing bait, killing bats, diarrhoea in chickens, preserving fruit and meat, fishing frogs and a great deal about worms.Michael Bapst (1540-1603) was a Protestant preacher in Mohorn in Saxony, and published numerous books containing medical and alchemical recipes. He considered himself an authority on alchemistic matters but at the same time copied recipes prepared by other authors. In a posthumous publication from 1605 even he finds one of his recipes against cramp - eating lice on bread - too bizarre: "Let him who fancies it try it; I myself would rather be excused" (Schubert & Sudhoff). With the coloured bookplate of Johann Georg von Werdenstein (1542-1608) and an owner's inscription of Maria Catharina von Haslang (1611-1679). Binding slightly loose, with a small shelfnumber pasted on the front. Browned throughout with some spots, a woodworm hole in 7 leaves near the second title-page, the front endpaper loose; in good condition.

A very fine and important photographic survey of the Dutch East Indies. An invaluable historical, social, political and cultural resource brought together for Otto von Bismarck. Most of the images bear the blind-stamp of Woodbury & Page, but also included are photographs of other photographer, mainly of ethnographic interest. Walter B. Woodbury (1834-1885), a Mancunian by birth, is the earliest known photographer of the Dutch East Indies. Aged 18 Woodbury emigrated to Australia in the hope of making his fortune in the Australian gold-fields. However, he was sidetracked by his passion for photography and became one of the leading expo-nents of the wet-plate process. He went on to hone his skills whilst living in Melbourne and, in 1854, won a medal at the Melbourne Exhibition which resulted in his decision to turn to photography professionally. Whilst in Melbourne he met his future associate, James Page, another British expatriate photographer, and both agreed to leave Australia in 1857 for Batavia and established their studio, Woodbury & Page, in the same year. After mastering the use of wet collodion plates in tropical conditions, Woodbury & Page went from strength to strength. Their work was acclaimed in The British Journal of Photography who reported that it was the first "to show the beauties of tropical scenery ever introduced to [England]" (BJP, 18 September, 1885, p. 596) and, in 1859, their photographs were marketed in England by Negretti & Zambra (scientific instrument makers to the Queen). After a short spell back in the UK, Woodbury returned to Java in 1860 and travelled extensively throughout the central and west of the country with Page and his brother, Henry James Woodbury (1836-1873). By 1861 the studio was moved to new premises and renamed Photographisch Atelier van Walter Woodbury where it remained until the company was liquidated in 1908. In 1863 Woodbury returned to England with his Javanese wife and, for the next 12 years, went on to invent prolifically (taking out patents for, amongst other things, optical kaleidoscopes, photographic apparatus and even musical railway signals). His breakthrough came with his patent for the Woodburytype in 1864, the photomechanical printing process which became the most commonly used method to illustrate fine books between 1870 and 1900. Comprising views in Batavia and western Java, including: a group portrait of seated Javanese officials from Serang, Banten; a mosque at Banten; the Governor General's Palace, images around Buitenzorg, a moun-tainous city to the south of Batavia (which, by the end of the nineteenth century, was one of the most developed and westernized cities in Indonesia). Other images are from west Java, including Bandoeng, Tjitjalengka, [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Journal of Charlotte Cleveland describing her voyage from London to Launceston, 9 April - 4 August 1852.

      A hitherto unknown manuscript copy of Charlotte Cleveland's famous journal, apparently commissioned by her daughter Edith, probably between 1890 and 1900. Late nineteenth century notebook. Small octavo, original black cloth card covers (now detached); manuscript in ink on ruled paper, pp [1], 1-117, [4], 118-140; first page inscribed in ink in the hand of Charlotte Cleveland's daughter, Edith (later Mrs. J.W. Debenham) 'My Mother's journal of journey from London to Launceston 1852', with a modern inscription beneath in pen which traces the line of ownership of this copy from Edith to her daughter, Jessie Debenham (later Mrs. John Stephen Macrae); page 1 of the manuscript titled 'A Narrative of a voyage from London to Port Philip (sic)'; the last of the 4 unnumbered pages between 117 and 118 with an apologetic note by the copyist, who identifies herself as Mrs. Wellford, explaining that she has inadvertently forgotten to number them; the journal is complete and extremely well preserved. Charlotte Cleveland, née Barry (1819-1884), who emigrated to Launceston in Van Diemen's Land with her husband William Charles Cleveland on the Mermaid in 1852, was a significant Tasmanian colonial artist. A number of her works in pencil or pencil and wash have survived. These views of buildings and landscapes in Launceston, Hobart and other locations are acknowledged as being historically important, perhaps none more so than her sketch of the Signal Station on Windmill Hill, which is the only known depiction of the building. The artist lived in Launceston from 1852 until 1864, then in Melbourne until 1877; she then returned with her husband to Launceston, remaining there until her death in 1884. The original of Charlotte Cleveland's ship board journal, kept during her outward voyage in 1852, remains in private hands. Clifford Craig, in his article Charlotte Cleveland 1819-1884 : an early Tasmanian artist, published in Papers and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Tasmania, volume 100, 1966, notes that Charlotte's original journal was (at the time his article was published) in the possession of her grandson, A.H. Weedon, of Tatana, near Launceston. LINC Tasmania (as part of the Launceston Manuscript Collection) holds a photocopy of the original manuscript. It has been transcribed by Gill Morris and published as The Journals of Charlotte Cleveland (Friends of the Library, Launceston 2006). The diary of William Cleveland is held in the Mitchell Library.
