Mason/Millard gives an account of the circumstances which led to the faint state of the Shannon plates.

        Occupation of Mashonaland. Views by W. Ellerton Fry. N.p., 1891. Der Titel stammt vom Vorderdeckel des Albums, das Datum stammt vom Copyright-Schild am Innendeckel: ". Copyright and registered at Stationers' Hall, London, England . 20th October, 1891." Folio (47 x 30 cm).

      - London 1891. 154 Original-Photographien auf 41 starken Albumblättern, jedes Photo mit montierter gedruckter Beschriftung. Goldschnitt. Die Größe der Photos ist meist 14 x 19 cm, ausgenommen die 5 Panorama-Photos, welche 14 x 38 cm messen. Original-Halblederband (leicht berieben), vereinzelt am Rand etwas stockfleckig, ein schönes, dekoratives Album mit hervorragenden Photographien. Ein wundervolles Dokument afrikanischer Geschichte! ? Enthalten sind die ersten Photographien der Ruinen von Zimbabwe, die ersten Aufnahmen von der Entstehung von Fort Salisbury, dem heutigen Harare, zahlreichen Aufnahmen der Gebiete zwischen Mafeking und dem heutigen Harare, zwischen Limpopo und Zambesi. Die Dokumentation zeigt aber auch zahlreiche Abbildungen von Einheimischen und ihren Dörfern, sie zeigt auch die Ausmaße des Kolonialtrupps sowie das Leben der Beteiligten. Looking for 'a few paying gold reefs' and with a concession granting him rights to minerals, Cecil J. Rhodes formed the British South Africa Company which sent its heavily guarded Pioneer Column north to exploit the land between the Limpopo and Zambezi rivers in 1890. The Column, consisting of 192 prospective miners, with the famous hunter Frederick Courtney Selous as guide, and 500 troopers of the newly formed British South Africa Police Company, established a camp, Fort Salisbury, at the site of present day Harare. 'An album was produced of 154 of W. Ellerton Fry's original whole-plate photographs, which form a comprehensive record of the historic trek of the Pioneer column from Mafeking to Fort Salisbury in 1890.' William Ellerton Fry (British, 1846-1930) was born in Somerset and emigrated to South Africa in 1872. He worked briefly as a farmer, trader, and prospector, before taking a post as secretary and computer at the Royal Observatory in Cape Town. He held the post for nearly twenty years, eventually attaining the position of Assistant Astronomer Royal. When the Mashonaland Pioneer Column was being formed, Fry was was appointed the Chief of Survey Department and Official Photographer of the Pioneer Corps with the rank of Lieutenant. In addition to preparing a detailed map from the Macloustie River to Fort Salisbury, he took the first ever photographs of the ruins of the city Zimbabwe in August 1890.

Folio. vi, [ii], 76pp, [8]pp (contents, last blank), 12 numbered full-page colour plates (Plate I is the illustrated title), 3 other coloured plates (dedication page and two titles for poems), all with tissue guards; 8 poem-title pages printed in monochrome on the text paper, all text pages with decorative border. Original gilt- and blind-decorated cloth over bevelled boards, extremities a little rubbed but bright and clean, all edges gilt. The book has been expertly repaired: the usual problem of perished gutta-percha binding meant that several pages/plates were loose in the binding, but none were adversely affected, with the gilt edges in very good condition. The front hinge has been strengthened with Japanese tissue. Offsetting on the limitation page (the first leaf), a little occasional light marginal spotting, the plates clean and bright. Very good. ***Ferguson 12516. .

        NEW LIGHT ON DARK AFRICA: Being the Narrative of the German Emin Pasha Expedition, its Journeyings and Adventures Among the Native Tribes of Eastern Equatorial Africa, the Gallas, Massais, Wasukuma, etc., etc., on the Lake Baringo and the Victoria Nyanza

      London: Ward, Lock, and Co., 1891. First Edition in English, translated from the German by H. W. Dulcken, Ph.D. Profusely decorated with a frontispiece portrait and 32 full-page plates, over sixty illustrations in text from designs by Rudolf Hellgrewe, and a large coloured map in a pocket at the end of the volume. Large, thick, royal 8vo, bound in the publisher's original beautiful red-clay coloured cloth with lettering and pictorial decorations on the upper cover and spine in gilt, black, blue-gray and white, glossy black endpapers. xviii, 597 pp. A very bright and attractive copy, and unusually so, quite fine and fresh, the cloth especially handsome with no fading and very little evidence of use or age, the text very clean and solid, inner hinges sometime neatly reinforced matching the colour of the cloth. FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT BOOK, SELDOM FOUND IN FINE CONDITION. THE VERY ELUSIVE WRITTEN ACCOUNT OF THE EXPEDITION LED BY GERMANY'S COUNTERPART TO HENRY STANLEY. It presents the story of the journey to find Emin Pasha on the Upper Nile, by approaching from Africa s East coast. Peters followed Pigott in exploring the Tana river and gained notoriety by his political activities to secure influence in the interior. Although the expedition was avowedly formed to aid in the Emin Pasha relief effort, the intent was also to extend the sphere of German influence in Uganda and Equatoria. This expedition was not sanctioned by the German government and was regarded by the British authorities as a filibustering exploit. Reaching Uganda in early 1890, Peters concluded a treaty with Kabaka Mwanga II of Buganda in favour of Germany. This roused the British ire and occasioned their effort to counteract his activities, and to gain further control over both Kenya Colony and Uganda. The book is most impressively illustrated, particularly regarding the battles waged between the expedition and hostile tribes.

        Tess of the D'Urbervilles: A Pure Woman

      Published by James R. Osgood McIlvane & Co., London: 1891. 3 vols. This is the very rare First edition First Issue of this classic novel by Thomas Hardy, with Chapter XXXV printed mistakenly as XXV on page 199, volume II. This error was corrected for the second issue and so is only present in the first issue, making this set of books just one of 1000 copies and all the rarer and more special. Bound in a contemporary binding of red half calf by Mudie, and housed in a modern red slipcase, these books are in lovely condition. the books are lacking the initial blank page in volume II and the final blanks in volumes II and III, and there is a neat ink inscription to the front free endpapers of each volume reading 'J. E. Ferguson'. There is gold gilt lettering and detailing to the spines with black roan labels and the initials J. E. F. at the foot os the spine. There is some minor rubbing and fading to the spines, especially the edges, but otherwise the bindings are nicely preserved and in lovely condition. There is only a little age spotting to the pages inside but apart form this the pages are remarkably clean, bright and free from damage. In all, the books are in Very Good+ to Near FIne condition. Overall, this is an exceptional and rare set of First edition, first printing copies of this classic piece of literature and would be an important addition to any collection, not to mention a great investment. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like any further information regarding these special volumes.

        A House of Pomegranates

      Sm. London: James R. Osgood McIlvaine & Co., 1891. Sm. 4to, (8), 159pp., pictorial title-page, 4 plates, and numerous illustrations and decorations in text by Ricketts and Shannon. Original pictorial cloth gilt, covers spotted and a bit discoloured, later ink inscription and two bookplates. In a blue quarter morocco slipcase. First edition, 1000 copies printed, this copy signed at the front by Ricketts and Shannon. We can find no record of other signed copies. Although Wilde remained effusive about the decoration of his book (and defended it from public criticism), the printing of Shannon's four plates had been difficult. As a result of some fault in the printing process, a dusty deposit appeared on each plate, which was only noticed after the book was bound. Unfortunately the solution - wiping each plate with a flannel - removed the surface of the print and left the images rather faint, and in some cases, almost invisible. Also the binding has proved over time to be very susceptible to soiling and spotting. This copy is about average or better than most copies. Turn of the Century, 6.

        No. 878. Minnekahta Block, Hot Springs, Black Hills, South Dakota

      Photograph. Albumen photograph measures 9 ¾" x 6 ½" on buff mount with title in the negative. Mount measures 10" x 6 ¾". This photograph was acquired with others credited to the frontier photographer W. R. Cross, but does not have his imprint. Photo taken circa 1891. This image depicts the Minnekahta Block viewed from atop a nearby hill, with a view of the Gillespie Hotel which burned in 1932, a large building located where the historic Hotel Evans still stands, and smaller store fronts. Photograph is in very good condition with light rubbing, light soiling and very light blue ink affecting photo; mount has light wear to all edges and a pinhole on top edge, and light soiling on verso. With good contrast this image shows the growing town Hot Springs. Detailed, one can distinguish that some of buildings were constructed of Lakota sandstone obtained from quarries outside of town. A train is also visible telling of the town's growing popularity for its scenery and mineral springs. "In 1890, the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad extended a branch from its main line running through Buffalo Gap to Hot Springs. The next year, the Burlington constructed a branch into Hot Springs from its main line, which ran through Edgemont to Deadwood" (City of Hot Springs). By 1892, Hot Springs, the "City of Healing Waters", was accessible from all directions by rail. William Richard Cross (1839-1907) was a photographer of the Nebraska and South Dakota frontier. He acquired a gallery in Hot Springs around 1888, photographing the growing town, Native Americans living at the nearby Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and the spectacular scenery of the Black Hills. .

Of the 17 plates that make up A Book of Drawings, nine are signed by the artists in pencil (including Joseph Pennell, Selwyn Image and two signatures by Louis Wain, whose drawing, "A Night in Town", also printed on the rear of the Smoking Concert Programme pasted in, is thought to be his first published "multi-cat caricature").

These include cartoons which feature caricatures of Davies and the other guests. Davies's daughter, Eleanor, referred to here as Queenie, is mentioned due to her well-regarded recitation of Dobson's poetry on his behalf. Eleanor went on to be the first woman to fly across the English Channel and to have "looped the loop" in an aircraft. These articles are accompanied by the signatures of four attendees, all reputable judges, John C. Day, R. Bramwell Davis, Sir Francis Jeune, and T. T. Bucknill.

        Lawn-Tennis

      Paris, Tresse & Stock 1891 - In-8, percaline bradel à coins, 44 pp, couvertures conservées. Envoi. 3 lettres autographes reliées dans le volume. Edition originale du premier texte de fiction français sur le tennis. Lawn-Tennis est une pièce de théâtre dont l'auteur lié avec Antoine se proposait de faire jouer en public. Malgré le réseau qui liait Gabriel Mourey à Guy de Maupassant, Debussy, Jules Bois, Paul Adam avec lesquels il avait travaillé et publié des poèmes ou des pièces de théâtre, son projet initial fut victime de la censure; un cours universitaire donné cette année-là à la Sorbonne a traité longuement de cette affaire. En effet la lettre-préface de Antoine annonce bien à Mourey qu' ¿il se produit un incident curieux et dont je ne connais pas d'exemple, c'est-à-dire que votre pièce possible à la représentation entre intimes n'est pas jouable devant un public¿. Les comédiens eux mêmes furent effrayés et redoutèrent la fermeture, sur un scandale, du célèbre Théâtre-Libre. Antoine, tout en faisant pression sur Mourey, dénonce ¿cette hypocrisie toute Britannique spéciale au gens assemblés qui, individuellement, commettent un tas de saletés sans la moindre vergogne et qui rechignent aux vérités trop nettes.¿ A la fin de la pièce, Camille étrangle son amie Elaine qui vient pourtant de lui avouer son amour alors qu'elle est liée à un homme dont elle est enceinte. Cet homme, Dick, apparaît dans la dernière scène joyeux, agitant sa raquette, disant ¿c'est à vous de servir¿, tel Escamillo aparaissant triomphant à la fin de Carmen. Exemplaire exceptionnel et unique rendu encore plus précieux par l'envoi à l'éditeur Stock et trois lettres autographes signées de Mourey. La première, datée du 3 juin 1892, adressée à Stock faisant référence à une somme due à Lanier, l'imprimeur de l'ouvrage, nous donne la preuve que, en réalité, ce livre a été imprimé à compte d'auteur (ce qui a pu contribuer à son extrême rareté). La deuxième lettre datée du 22 Juillet 1889 est adressée à Savine. Elle concerne la préface donnée à Mourey pour les poèmes et ballades de A. C Swinburne par Guy de Maupassant: ¿cet homme exquis m'a même promis de la faire passer dans quelque grand journal, supplément du Figaro par exemple. Ce serait un bon coup pour la vente. Acceptez donc, c'est un livre à audaces et bien moderne, mais qui ne risque point pourtant de prolonger votre séjour à Sainte-Pélagie.¿ La troisième lettre datée du 18 Décembre 1889, écrite à l'encre rouge, cite Rosny et annonce la préparation par Mourey d'une traduction de poèmes de Edgar Poe [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Umfangreicher eigenhändiger Nachlass von über 60 Briefen und 88 postalisch gelaufenen Postkarten an die eigene Familie und besonders an die Nichte Käthe Uphues in Sassenberg. Bis auf wenige Ausnahme mit der Signatur des Künstlers als Joseph oder JUphues. Der westfälische Bildhauer wurde 1882 Meisterschüler von Reinhold Begas, für den er auch von 1885 bis 1891 als Gehilfe im Privatatelier arbeitete. Ab 1892 machte er sich selbstständig. 1899 erhielt er den Titel Professor und wurde Mitglied der Berliner Secession. Um die Jahrhundertwende zählte er zu den erfolgreichsten Bildhauern Deutschlands mit Aufträgen in Berlin, Wiesbaden, Potsdam usw. Seine guten Beziehungen zum deutsche Kaiserhaus waren für seine Karriere förderlich. In der vorliegenden Korrespondenz findet sich sowohl der Künstler als auch der Familienmensch Joseph Uphues und so stellt diese Sammlung nicht nur eine kunstgeschichtlich und historisch einmalige Fundgrube dar, sondern ist ein Zeitdokument besonderen Ranges.

      Diverse Orte, 1891 - 1910. unterschiedliche Größen. Ein- bis vierseitige Briefe auf unterschiedlichen Papieren in Klarsichthüllen in Ordner. Teils farbige, teils lithographische Postkarten mit hauptsächlich topographischen Ansichten. Ganz überwiegend in tadelloser Erhaltung. Aus Düren schreibt Uphues wohl 1891 an \"Mein liebes Mütterchen! Seit 8 Tagen bin ich schon hier in Düren um das Bismarck Denkmal aufzustellen welches heute in 8 Tagen um 12 Uhr enthüllt werden soll. (...) Ich wohne bei Herren Philipp Schoeller in einem Schloß (...) Die Leute die mindestens 50fache Millionäre sind tragen mich förmlich auf Händen ...\" Im Nachsatz dieses Briefes schreibt Uphues \"Meine neue Adresse ist: Berlin Wilmersdorf Pfalzburger Str. 86.\" Diese Aussage korrigiert das in der Dissertation von Brigitte Kaul: `Joseph Uphues. Ein Bildhauer im wilhelminischen Zeitalter und sein Werk` angegebene Umzugsdatum von 1894. Ebenfalls aus Düren schreibt U. am 15.5.1900: \"Erst hatte ich drei Wochen eine Familie aus Düren in Berlin von denen ich die Büsten zu machen habe, dann kamen Schoellers 14 Tage nach Berlin (...) und mußte dann mit Schoellers von Berlin nach hier fahren um einige Sachen auszustellen. (...) Nun ist auch noch das Dumme, daß ich bei meiner Rückreise nicht kommen kann, da ich schon am 16. nach Wiesbaden muss wo ich eingeladen bin die Festspiele in Gegenwart des Kaisers bei zu wohnen die bis zum 23. Mai dauern.\" Zwei Jahre später aus Berlin: \"Ihr glaubt nicht wie ich an allen Ecken und Kanten angebettelt und angepumpt werde. (...) Es sind eben sehr schlechte Zeiten und die meisten Bildhauer hier haben nichts zu thun da muß man schon seinem Schöpfer danken daß man Arbeit hat und muß auch etwas opfern\". Aus \"Nordernei\" schreibt U. am 31.7.1903: \"Ende August gehen wir auf drei Wochen nach Paris wo ich etwas zu thun habe.\" Am 31.3.1904 aus Berlin: \"Ich weiß nicht ob ich euch geschrieben habe, daß am 1. Oktober die Enthüllung von meinem Friedrich dem Großen in Amerika stattfinden soll. Anfangs Mai wenn der Kaiser zurückkommt wird es festgestellt werden ob und wann ich hingehe. (...) da am 1. Mai in Wiesbaden die Festspiele sind wohin ich jedenfalls wenigstens zum ersten Tag hingehen werde und dort auch den Kaiser sehe, vielleicht kann ich dann die Sache mit ihm besprechen.\" Am 28.8.1904 trifft Uphues ein schwerer Schicksalsschlag: \"...als ich zwei Tage hier war bekam ich ein Telegramm daß Herr Schoeller an Lungenlähmung plötzlich gestorben sei. (...) Es ist für uns nach allen Richtungen hin der größte Verlust der uns treffen konnte. Hätte er noch einige Jahre gelebt dann wäre ich von allen Sorgen befreit gewesen.\" Am 4.3.1905 aus Berlin: \"Ich bin jetzt an drei Stellen mit aufbauen der Denkmäler beschäftigt, das große Kaiser Friedrich Denkmal für Charlottenburg das große Moltke Denkmal am Königsplatz und das Schiller Denkmal in Wiesbaden.\" Am 4.5.1905 aus Berlin: \"Die Friedrich Enthüllung in Charlottenburg dürfte gegen den 30. Mai sein. Der Kaiser bestimmt den Tag noch. (...) Morgen abend, Freitag fahren wir nach Wiesbaden zur Schiller Enthüllung.\" Sehr interessant ist auch die folgende bisher nicht beschriebene Verbindung: \"Wir waren heute vor 8 Tagen in Neu-Kaliss beim Geheimrath Bausch ...\" Im Februar 1908 macht die Familie Uphues eine Ägyptenreise. Davon zeugen besonders drei ausführliche Briefe auf dem Briefpapier der Nile Company: \"Dann sind wir nach Kairo gefahren, das stellenweise unvergleichlich schön und großartig ist aber auch eben so unvergleichlich verkommen und gräßlich.\" Am 28.8.1909 berichtet U. von folgendem Ereignis: \"Am Sonnabend ist hier der große Zeppelin Tag und wird ganz Berlin auf Stützen stehen. Da wir um die selbe Zeit durch Bitterfeld fahren wenn der Zeppelin dort abfährt so ist es nicht ausgeschlossen, daß wir ihn schon auf der Fahrt nach Berlin sehen können, da der Ballon den selben Weg nehmen muß. Um 5 Uhr sind wir in Berlin und um 5 Uhr hat Zeppelin sich beim Kaiser in Berlin angemeldet.\" 60 Briefen liegt eine vollständige Deskribierung bei. Die 88 Postkarten sind alle mit Briefmarke gelaufen, nicht deskribiert und teilweise schwierig zu entziffern. Weiterhin beiliegend einige Briefumschläge mit ausgeschnittenen Briefmarken, ein Foto des Grabmals von Joseph Uphues sowie die Dissertation von Brigitte Kaul. Versand D: 6,00 EUR

Ogni opera fu messa in vendita separatamente, quindi va considerata tipograficamente autonoma, ma essendo i volumi comunque contrassegnati numericamente, l'unitarietà della raccolta, almeno limitatamente ai volumi I-XXXV, va considerata un fattore di grande rarità.
