        Original Photograph

      Ruder Photographer, NY 1890 - Original photograph, 5-3/4 x 4-3/8 inches, mounted on grey board, 8 x 12 inches, within triple rules, some sunning to top inch of board on which photo is mounted, lacking tissue guard was was previously affixed, photograph is fine. This is a handsome image of the pianist and composer, seated on a rocker on a proch most likely in the country, reading a book. The tree outside the porch and the light colored and light-weight dress indicates summer. Amy Beach (1867-1944), composer and pianist , showed her musical precocity early on; by four, she was composing waltzes. her mother, a talented singer and pianist, undertook her daughter's first musical education; later she studied Ernst Perebo, Junius W. Hill and Carl Baermann. During the winter of 1881-1882, Hill taught her harmony, 'the only formal instruction in music theory she ever received. l[NAW] At the age of 16, she debuted with the Boston Symphony Orchestra as a pianist and, finding favor with critics and public alike, continued to give recitals. Her marriage in 1885 to Dr. H.H.A. Beach, a distinquished surgeon and colleague of Dr. Oliver Wendell olmes, considerable altered the course of her career. her husband appreciated and supported her music but disliked her performing in public. With his encouragement she focusted on composing, teaching herself the priciples of musical composition. Her Mass in E Flat major for vocal quarter, chorus, orchestra and organ, was first performed in 1892 by the Handel and Haydn Society with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It was the "first work by a woman performed by this oldest and most conservative of American choral organizations." [NAW] remarkable for any composer, all but three of her 150 works were published. She also sought to encourage other woman in music, founding in 1926 and serving as first President, the Association of American Women Composers. [THE BOOK OF WMEN'S FIRSTS] Highly regarded throughout her career, Beach's music fell into oblivion after her death; new recordings in the 1970's reawakened interest in this fine composer and musician.

        Ladies' fencing and gymnastics in Victorian West London - album of material assembled by gymnastics teacher Katherine Woodward, including original illustration by Alice B. Woodward, photographs, programmes, newspaper cuttings.

      London: London, from her address at 129 Beaufort Street, Chelsea; as well as Alexandra House, Kensington Gore; Fulham Congregational Lecture Hall and St Johns Mission Hall, Chelsea,, 1890-7. Quarto brown cloth album (287 × 243 mm), bevelled boards, with embossed panel, in black and oxidised gilt to the front board, ownership inscription 'Katherine Woodward' inked to the front pastedown. Around 60 items neatly laid down both sides of the 24 card leaves of thick card-stock. A detailed listing of the contents below. A little rubbed and soiled, skilful restoration at the spine and corners, hinges professionally repaired, album leaves browning and a touch brittle, the contents with some spotting, mild fading and mottling of the photographs, occasional soiling, but overall very good Intriguing personal album of material assembled by gymnastics teacher Katherine Woodward, including original illustrations by Alice B. Woodward, photographs, programmes, newspaper cuttings, the items dating from between 1890 and 1897. Katherine Woodward came from a prosperous and highly-cultured Victorian family in West London. Her father Henry Bolinbroke Woodward (1832-1921) was Keeper of Geology South Kensington, and editor of the Geological Magazine from its commencement in 1864 until the end of 1918; and her sister was the well-known illustrator Alice B. Woodward (1862-1951), who worked on both children's and scientific books, several pieces of original artwork being included here. The present assemblage gives a marvellous insight into a key period in the progress of the emancipation of British women, the connection between physical exercise and education being emphasised by a page of illustrations of Royal Holloway College, and a magazine article on 'How Women May Make Money ?As Teachers of Athletics' (see section VIII below). Woodward began her involvement in physical culture by attending Miss Stuart Snell's ladies gymnasium at Alexandra House, Kensington Gore (see the related programme, newspaper cuttings, and eleven original photographs), and as section IX shows, she was soon in search of work as a teacher of gymnastics. A number of later items relate to her employment as director of the Girls' Drill Classes, Fulham Congregational Lecture Hall and St John's Mission Hall, Chelsea, where she showed herself to be 'an accomplished gymnast', having 'very kindly given her services voluntarily'. At the same time - see items I and III - she had set up her own gymnasium at the family home, 129 Beaufort Street, Chelsea. I: Two original design drawings in black ink, presumably by Alice B. Woodward, each on a 130 x 210 mm piece of card, being attractive decorative headers for 'Fencing Lessons' and 'Gymnastic Lessons' at Woodward's own venue, 129 Beaufort Street, Chelsea, and each with a "trophy" f relevant equipment, and a banderolle with the motto 'Strength & Grace'. II: Exquisite original ink drawing by 'A[lice]. B[olingbroke]. W[oodward].' of a lady fencer, 130 mm high, accompanied by a manuscript poem - presumably by Katherine Woodward and apparently unpublished - titled 'Feminine Fencers', beginning: 'In the distant lands

        "Arriving by Boat"

      [London]: , 1890. An Original Arthur Rackham Pencil Drawing To The Other Side? RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "Arriving by Boat" [n.d., n.p., ca. 1890]. Original pencil drawing. Image size: 8 1/2 x 5 inches: 215 x 127 mm. Matted, framed and glazed (frame size: 16 3/8 x 12 3/4 inches; 423 x 323 mm.). In the foreground is a small row boat docked by some steps. One man with a hat and coat on is sitting in the boat and there is a man on the dock holding what might be some fish. One woman is bending down to look at the fish and another woman is climbing the steps. In the background, sketched, are group of people up on the quayside. In our opinion it is quite possible that this pencil drawing was a preparatory sketch for Rackham's first (and rarest) published book: To The Other Side. With Illustrations by Arthur Rackham & Alfred Bryan. London: George Philip & Son, 1893. The text of this book is in the form of a travel brochure, starting with embarkation on the Majestic in Liverpool, sailing to New York, traveling the Eastern seaboard north to Niagara, Boston, Toronto, etc.: then to Chicago: then via St. Paul and Winnipeg to the Pacific, including visits to Yosemite, British Columbia, etc. Rackham's fifteen illustrations, all black-and-white line drawings, were mostly done after photographs (or from other published sources) of Yosemite (two views), San Francisco's Chinatown, Salt Lake City, New York, miners, cowboys, scenes aboard the Majestic, inside a Pullman car, etc., etc. Provenance: from the artist's family. Exhibited at 'The British Art of Illustration' 26th November - 20th December, 1991 (no. 223).

        Lebende Bilder [Living Pictures]

      München [Munich]: Verlag von Braun & Schneider, 1890. Lothar Meggendorfer's "Lebende Bilder" [Living Pictures] Eight Fantastic Hand Colored Moveable Plates [MOVABLE BOOK]. MEGGENDORFER, Lothar. Lebende Bilder [Living Pictures] von L. Meggendorfer. 15. Auflage.München [Munich]: Verlag von Braun & Schneider, [ca. 1890]. Fifteenth German Edition. Folio (page size: 11 7/8 x 9 1/8 inches; 301 x 232 mm.; Board size: 12 7/8 x 9 3/8 inches; 327 x 238 mm.). [1, foreword], [2-18] pp. Eight hand-colored lithograph plates with movable parts (included in pagination), each with a tab to set the scene in motion. Original color lithographed pictorial boards with black cloth backstrip. Small rectangular booksellers label on rear turn-in (Brentano's New York). Inner hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, all of the movable parts in perfect working order. A spectacular copy of this rare title. According to OCLC the earliest edition that we can locate is 6. Auglage (ca. 1890) - there are very few copies of any of the original Braun & Scneider editions listed - we believe this 15th edition to have also been published around 1890. "Meggendorfer's reputation today is based almost solely on his ingenious mechanical picture-books for children. These he began to design during the late 1880s, and many of these books went into multiple German editions besides translations into English, French, Italian, Spanish, Bohemian, Hungarian, and Russian. Deservedly, he is considered the creator and chief innovator of moveable toy books, and his printed works are eagerly sought after by collectors of historical children's literature. He produced books with moveable figures, transformation pictures segmented into three parts and thus interchangeable, books with pop-up designs, rotating wheels as well as four-panel slat pictures which change the illustrations through movement, and simply funny picture books for children that would certainly make them laugh and generally contributed to some educational benefit" (Justin G. Schiller's Introduction to The Publishing Archive of Lothar Meggendorfer. "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 Meggendorfer's books-not to mention the originality of his figures-are far superior to any others published before or since. The devices that operated the various figures in Meggendorfer's 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" (Haining, Movable Books, p. 65). The Plates: 1. "Herr Staberl" (Mr. Staberl) 2. "Die Jungfer Köchin" (The Spinster Cook) 3. "Der Klavierpieler" (The Piano Player) 4. "Der Schreiber" (The Writer) 5. "Der Herr Magister" (The School Master) 6. "Der Tiroler Sänger" (The Tirol Singer) 7. "Frikchen und der Kakadu" (Frikchen and the Cockatoo) 8. "Das naschafte Käklein"
