        "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.

        Pre-Conversion Letter By Brigham Young's (Twice-over) Future Father-in-Law

      A scarce early letter from the father of two of Brigham Young's plural wives. It discusses a period of his life that is virtually unknown (see Gilman Bigelow Howe's Genealogy of the Bigelow Family in America (Worcester, 1890). As Susa Young Gates (a granddaughter of Nahum Bigelow and daughter of Brigham Young and Lucy Bigelow Young) wrote in his only known biography in the Juvenile Instructor (April 15, 1891): "Little can be told of the early life of Nahum Bigelow--leaving behind him no record except in the hearts of loving descendents. From that record--halting and imperfect as it may be and is--the following sketch can be made." she goes on to speak of the background from other family oral traditions, but little of an historical note exists. After moving from Mt. Carmel, Illinois to nearby Lawrenceville, he was married in 1826 to 16 year old Mary Gibbs who was 24 years his junior. After the birth of Mary Jane and Lucy, he moved his family to Hancock County where he was converted to Mormonism some time after 1835. The family removed to Nauvoo in 1843 and after the murder of Joseph Smith they trekked to Winter Quarters, Indian Territory (near today's Omaha in 1847. The two daughters were to become plural wives of Brigham Young. The letter is written to his brother, Noah (1783-1850), an itinerate preacher who was interested in land speculation in Mount Carmel, Illinois. Nahum writes: "Dear Brother, I take my pen to write a few lines….after losing all hopes of hearing from you again….the lots you purchased ought to be in no danger….they [do] have to be disposed of soon. He writes that he has a son and a daughter [twenty-one months old]. Seal hole affecting a few letters and repaired fold tears with no loss of text.

The publisher's binding was blind-stamped brown cloth, lettered on the spine, with yellow endpapers; the plates follow the text and map is at the title-page, all hinge-mounted with linen (the two copies in the State Library of Tasmania, and the Royal Society of Tasmania's copy are thus). The map is a standard Tasmanian government issue (drawn by Leventhorpe Hall, 1884) and in his introduction Hull thanks the Tasmanian Minister of Lands for supplying it, but not all copies in public collections have one (those in the National Library, State Library of Victoria and Queen Victoria Museum, Launceston do not). Some copies of the book were bound privately for institutions. .

        A bound collection of coloured botanical specimen plates

      Rochester, NY: M. Brunswick & Co, 1890. Octavo. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches). 129 colour pochoir or chromolithographed plates, bound accordion style with the plates generally mounted in rows of three, joined by cloth ribbons, each row joined by a second row of three so that six plates are visible on each opening. Bound to style in black morocco. Housed in a black cloth box.A very fine tree-peddler's sample book from M. Brunswick & Co.This album has a greater number and variety of plates than usually encountered: in the pomological section there are depictions of 25 kinds of apples, 3 pears, 7 cherries, 7 plums, 1 apricot, 2 peaches, 26 berries and currants, 6 grapes, 2 vegetables; the horticultural section includes 22 trees, flowering shrubs or climbers, 12 roses and other flowering plants and more."Mina (or Minnie) Brunswick (1849-1925) is listed in the Rochester city directories as a producer of fruit plates or nurserymen's plates from 1888 through 1920. Her first advertisement, in the 1889 directory, reads in part: 'M. Brunswick & Co., (Formerly with D.M. Dewey), Manufacturers of Hand Painted Fruit and Ornamental Plates. All of Mr. Dewey's artists have been retained by us' ... Brunswick, by the 1910s, appears to have been the last producer of hand-painted (stencilled) plates in Rochester." (Kabelac).Nearly all the plates include the Brunswick imprint, which suggests that this album was sold ready-made. The more usual practice was for the salesmen to make up his sample-book from individual plates from a number of different publishers. The album can be dated approximately from dates in the descriptions of a handful of plates between 1888 and 1893, which is consistent with the firm's starting date.Cf. Karl Sanford Kabelac, "Nineteenth-Century Rochester Fruit and Flower Plates" in The University of Rochester Library Bulletin (1982) vol. XXXV, pp. 93-114; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona65.

        Oysters, And all about them. Being A complete history of the titular subject, exhaustive on all points of necessary and curious information from the Earliest Writers to those of the Present Time, with numerous additions, facts, and notes..

      London and Leicester: John Richardson & Co.,, 1890 A very good copy of the 1st and only edition of this work in 2 volumes with an inscription by the author in Vol I. Vol I published 1890; Vol II published 1891. A comprehensive and exhaustive work on oysters covering history, varieties, cultivation, cooking etc. The author originally intended to complete the work in a single volume, but gathered so much material that this was not possible. There is a small slip at the beginning of Vol II which explains this and why the pagination and chapters run continuously through the work. This copy is in the original blue decorative cloth bindings with gilt and black titles to the front boards and a black lined illustration, and gilt titles to the spine. The bindings are both bright and clean with some pulling to the spines and light wear to corners and edges including joints. Both have the original endpapers which are unmarked. There is an ownership signature to the reverse of the fep of both volumes and the author's inscription: 'With the author's kind regards June 1891' to the top of the title page to Vol I. Contents are very clean: there is a little spotting to foredge in both volumes. A very scarce work.

        In Darkest Africa or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin Governor of Equatorial (2 volumes)

      Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington Limited, London 1890 - (xvi),(1)-529 & (xvi),(1)-472 Pp. Two steel-engraved portrait frontispieces, two photogravure plates on India paper, mounted, 36 wood-engraved plates on India, mounted, 6 etchings by M.G. Montbard signed by the artist in pencil. First edition, edition de luxe, number 90 of 250 copies signed by Stanley. Stanley's famous account of his expedition to relieve Emin Pasha (Eduard Schnitzer), the beleaguered governor of equatorial Sudan, contains some of his most celebrated writing, especially his account of the tortuous 450-mile passage through the dense Ituri rain forest. Stanley's dealings with Emin Pasha, who proved singularly resistant to being "rescued", his abandonment of his own rear column and his wider motives for his mission have all come under suspicion then and since, but the book remains a classic of African exploration. 4 coloured maps and plans; the 1 larger folding maps mounted on linen. [I folding map missing] Original dark brown half morocco, japon on bevelled boards with the title, flag of Emin Pasha and Stanley's signature to the upper boards gilt, gilt lettered spines, top edges gilt First edition, edition de luxe, number 90 of 250 copies signed by Henry Stanley.
