        Dame in wallendem Kleid

      um 1891 um 1891. Bleistift auf festem Papier, unten links signiert und bezeichnet: "Fritz Burger Paris", 45,6 x 31,4 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Als Fritz Burger 1891 in Paris ankam, war er schlecht gerüstet für die leichtfüßigen und lichtdurchfluteten, ornamentalen Gebilde der Art Nouveau. Die dunkle Erdenschwere seiner Münchner Lehrer Karl Raupp, Nicolaus Gysis und Ludwig von Löfftz hatte wenig mit Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec oder Alfons Mucha gemein. Doch gerade deren lithographische Kompositionen hatten es Burger angetan und so tauchte er sehr schnell seine Bilder ebenfalls in das Licht der Moderne und wurde bald zum wichtigsten Lithographen der Zeit im deutschsprachigen Raum. Ob Burger Alfons Mucha, der 1889 nach Paris kam, während dessen Studienzeit in München kannte, muss vorerst offen bleiben, es liegt aber nahe. Allerdings scheint der Münchner die erotische Spannung, die sich durch die Werke seiner Zeitgenossen zieht, nicht in seiner Bilder integrieren zu wollen. Die schlichte Eleganz eines John Singer Sargent scheint seiner Kunstvorstellung eher entsprochen zu haben. Das vorliegende Blatt verkörpert genau dies. Unsere Zeichnung beweist aber noch einen weiteren Einfluss, der sich wohl ebenfalls maßgeblich über das Medium der Druckgraphik manifestierte. Der in Paris zu jener Zeit gefeierte Schwede Anders Zorn hat gerade in seinen Radierungen durch eine raffinierte Schraffurtechnik von Licht durchflutete Oberflächen gestalten können, die die Blätter zu monochromen, impressionistischen Werken macht. Dessen mal eng beieinander, mal weit von einander entfernt liegende Linienbündel ähneln dabei stark Burgers auf unserer Zeichnung verwendeten Linienführungsstil, auch wenn bei ihm der teilweise hohe Abstraktionsgrad, das Sich-Auflösen des Objekts in den Linien, keine Rolle zu spielen scheint. Dafür offenbart die Zeichnung noch eine weitere Bedeutungsschicht, die über die bloße Wiedergabe des Gesehenen hinaus geht. Die Striche weben wie züngelnde Flammen ein dichtes Netz als Hintergrund und räumliche Verortung, um die Figur schließlich wie in einer Mandorla einzufangen. Das weiße, wallende Gewand vermag Burger mit wenigen Strichen in seiner ganzen Schwere perfekt einzufangen und der ausbreitende Gestus weckt wiederum Erinnerungen an die Symbolik der Schutzmantelmadonna. Das verhaltene Anklingen dieses kunsthistorischen Kontextes ist besonders interessant, auch wenn er sicherlich nicht religiös konnotiert ist. Ob bewusst oder unbewusst eingeflossen, lässt sich heute nicht mehr bestimmen, aber in jedem Fall zeigt dieser Aspekt, mit welch subtilen Details selbst eine vermeintlich spontane Bewegungsstudie aus ihrer Zufälligkeit herausgehoben werden kann. Die sich ergebenden Assoziationen verleihen der Zeichnung jene bedeutungsvolle Würde, die das Augen an die Darstellung fesselt.

        Ueber einige neuere Forschungen im Gebiete der Anatomie des Centralnervensystems

      Leipzig, Thieme, 1891.. 23 x 15cm, etwas fragile Originalbroschur, unbeschnitten, alter Namenszug auf Titel, Fadenheftung locker, 64 S.. Waldeyer (1836-1921) war Ordinarius für Anatomie bzw. Pathologische Anatomie in Breslau, Straßburg und Berlin. In dieser hier erstmals in Buchform vorliegenden Arbeit (im gleichen Jahr in Band 17 der Deutschen Medizinischen Wochenschrift erschienen) faßt er alle Ergebnisse der in den Jahren zuvor durchgeführten Untersuchungen der Neurohistologie zusammen in der programmatischen Aussage, dass "das Nervensystem (...) aus zahlreichen untereinander anatomisch wie genetisch nicht zusammenhängenden Nerveneinheiten (Neuronen) besteht", und dass "die Achsenzylinder sämmtlicher Nervenfasern (...) sich als direkt von Zellen ausgehend erwiesen (haben). Ein Zusammenhang mit einem Fasernetzwerke bzw. ein Ursprung aus einem solchen findet nicht statt". Er prägt hier den Begriff Neuron! - GARRISON/M. 1369, NORMAN 2173.

        SPEECHES

      Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1891. First Edition. Hardcover. Neat repairs to the front hinge and spine. Upper half of front cover darkened. Very Good or better copy of a scarce title. Original printed boards. A scarce collection of eleven speeches prefaced by the comment: "These chance utterances of faith and doubt are printed for a few friends who will care to keep them." Holmes served as chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court from 1899 until 1902 when he was appointed to the United States Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt, a position he held until his retirement in 1932. Holmes became famous for his liberal interpretations of the United States Constitution and was known as the "Great Dissenter" because of his disagreement with the views of his colleagues on the Court. His lectures on common law at the Lowell Institute in Boston, collected as THE COMMON LAW (1881), are considered a classic of legal writing. Speeches in this book include "Harvard College in the War" and "The Use of Law Schools." This copy with the bookplate of John Wesley Churchill on the front pastedown and his presumed pencil name on the front endpaper. Also on the front pastedown is a small bookplate presenting this book to the Churchill Memorial Room.

        EPIMACHUS ELLIOTI - Black Sicklebill

      London 1891 - This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph from Richard Bowdler Sharpe’s outstanding work “Birds of Paradise" is in excellent condition, measures 14 ¾” x 22” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. Richard Bowdler Sharpe conceived of the idea for his exquisite work ‘Birds of Paradise’, published from 1891-1898, as a supplement to John Gould’s ‘Birds of New Guinea’, published in London from 1875 to 1888, was left incomplete on Gould’s death in 1881. The task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. The birds of paradise were so strikingly beautiful that Sharpe later issued what amounted to a sequel of this work, focusing on the most colorful and exquisite subjects. Sharpe’s Birds of Paradise are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. All of the bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        NORTH AGAINST SOUTH

      1891 - A Tale of the American Civil War. With Numerous Illustrations. New and Cheaper Edition. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1891. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black. Early English ("New and Cheaper") Edition of this adventure tale taking place during the American Civil War. This is the tale of the antagonism between Burbank (an anti-slavery Northerner now living near Jacksonville, Florida) and Texar (a pro-slavery Southerner); Texar winds up kidnapping Burbank's daughter and hiding her in the Everglades, and Burbank heads off in search of his daughter -- all as the Civil War rages around them.~The first English edition came out in December 1887 (though dated 1888). Sampson Low would always issue a "New and Cheaper Edition" two or three years later, in a similar but slightly smaller binding, but with the same crisp illustrations.~This copy is very good (recased in its original binding, with the original pale yellow endpapers which are reinforced at the joint). The front free endpaper bears the inkstamp of the original owner, and its verso bears an 1893 gift inscription to him. This is a Verne title that we seldom see. Taves & Michaluk V033.

        1891 Une Famile d'artistes: Les Ozanne C. AUFFRET FIRST

First EditionIn FrenchBound in paper with gilt letteringNicolas Ozanne (1728-1811) was one of the artists in the Ozanne family. He was a French draughtsman, engraver and marine engineer. He was a precocious draughtsman and at the age of ten was working at the Arsenal in Brest. In 1750 he was named drawing-master of the Gardes du Pavillon Amiral et de la Marine in Brest. Entrusting his appointment to his younger brother Pierre Ozanne (1737-1813), he was called in 1751 to Versailles to participate in the publication of the series of drawings and engravings entitled the Voyage du Roi Louis XV au Havre en 1749. He made contact with Parisian artists and the engineers and high functionaries of the Ministere de la Marine. In 1755-6 he had the chance to accompany Joseph Vernet to southern France when the latter painted his views of the Ports of France for Louis XV. He received the appointment of Dessinateur de la Marine in 1756 and published the Marine militaire ou recueil des differents vaisseaux qui servent la guerre (Paris, 1762), a volume of didactic engravings. He was also named maritime instructor to the princes of the royal family and in 1769 became Inginieur Ordinaire de la Marine. He produced numerous drawings, watercolours and engravings, among them two views of Paris (Navigation de barques et chalands sur la Seine devant les Tuileries and Les Chantiers du quai de la Grenouillre, lors de la construction d'un grand navire; both pen and black ink and black wash) now in the Musee Carnavalet, Paris. He is best known for his countless maritime drawings (views of French ports, naval battles, illustrated treatises on naval construction), some published as prints, the originals of others housed for the most part at the Musee de la Marine, Paris, and the Cabinet des Dessins, Musee du Louvre, Paris. Condition: The binding is firm. The outer hinges are starting slightly. There is some wear to the extremities, including some bumping and some rubbing. The front inner hinge is slightly strained and there are amorialbookplates on the pastedowns. Internally the pages are generally clean with some browning to the edges and some mild intermittant spotting which is mostly towards the front of the book. Some of the pages have been reinforced. There is also some mild offsetting from some of the plates, and the previous owner hasfixed some pages from another book on the Ozannes into the text. Overall the condition of the book is very good.
