        [Poster]. Frederick Warde / The Great Forum Scene in "Virginius."

      Cleveland: W.J. Morgan & Co. Lith., 1892. First edition. A very good copy, restored at the edges, some uneven toning (Condition B+).. Large, three panel poster, with the central image showing the great Forum scene, in which Virginius stabs his daughter in order to save her from being given as a slave to Appius Claudius, flanked by smaller panels of Virginius alone with his daughter. Frederick Barkham Warde (1851-1935) English born American actor came to America in 1874, joined Edwin Booth's company. and In 1881 formed a touring company of his own. "Warde represented a specific type of touring actor popular at the end of the nineteenth century. Purveyors of an old-fashioned tradition of acting and a well-worn repertory, these traveling tragedians carried familiar material far and wide into the American provinces... His classical productions were particularly admired by provincial reviewers. Indeed, it was Warde's scholarly approach to Shakespeare's plays that distinguished him from other second-rank tragedians of his day. In 1892 he formed a three-year partnership with Louis James, another actor who had found his greatest success outside New York City, and appeared in eighty-six cities with a familiar classical repertory," (Kristan A. Tetens. "Warde, Frederick Barkham" ANBO anb.org/articles/18/18-01210.html). This poster was most likely produced shortly before or at the beginning of this period. As one reviewer wrote a few years later: "Most playgoers have seen Sheridan Knowles' Virginius often, but can never grow tired of the play when in the hands of so efficient a company as Mr. Warde's. The Virginius of Frederick Warde seems to grow every year in strength, and the performance last night was simply magnificent. Mr. Warde's impersonation was grand 'and not a word or a gesture of his was lost by the audience who throughout were in the closest sympathy both with the actor and the man... It would be difficult to improve on Mr. Warde's scenic mounting of Virginius. Not only are the smallest details accurately attended to, but some remarkably fine stage pictures are given. For grand effect the scenes in the forum and the Roman camp have never been surpassed at this theater" (Los Angeles Herald, Volume 45, Number 131, 19 February 1896 p. 7). Warde "was one of the first old-style tragedians to make the leap into the brave new world of motion pictures. In 1912 Warde directed and starred in Richard III, the first feature film adaptation of a Shakespearean work. His subsequent films included a much-acclaimed King Lear (1916) and nine other feature-length movies, including screen versions of Silas Marner (1916) and The Vicar of Wakefield (1917).... If Warde lacked the spark of genius that would have catapulted him into the first rank of American tragedians, he nevertheless represented a tradition of acting that had a profound and long-lasting influence on the American theater outside the cosmopolitan centers of the East," (ANBO). Rare. Posters and photographs of Warde are scarce. We could locate no copies of this poster. The Library of Congress' Theatrical Poster Collection has a few later color posters for Runneymede and one black and white of Warde and Louis James. The Folger has two photographs: a portrait and one in costume as Rinaldo. There is a cabinet card at Berkeley. His film performances are available on DVD at Kino and The Thanhouser Collection.

        Dahlien.

      - Farbholzschnitt, auf Japan, im Stock monogrammiert „HR (ligiert)", links unten betitelt „"Dahlien"", rechts unten bezeichnet „Orig. Entwurf. u. Schnitt v. Heine Rath; Handgedruckt a. d. Nachlass von Erna Nachtigall". Darstellungsgröße 26,8:5,3 cm, Blattgröße 29,2:37,7 cm.- Verso an den Ecken Reste alter Montage. Heine Rat begann sein Studium 1892 an der Berliner Kunstakademie, von 1900 bis 1904 arbeitete er als Meisterschüler Carlos Grethes (1864-1913) in Stuttgart. Nach einer Zeit in Berlin und Werder/Havel und mehreren Reisen, unter anderem nach Skandinavien, Island, Spanien und Nordafrika, erhielt er 1913 eine Berufung an die Stuttgarter Akademie auf den "Lehrstuhl für Holzschneidekunst". In das erste Jahr der neuen Tätigkeit fiel der Beginn des 1. Weltkriegs, unter dem er – obwohl vom Wehrdienst zurückgestellt – physisch und psychisch litt. Ein vorhandenes Herzleiden verschlimmerte sich und er ist mit erst 47 Jahren in Stuttgart verstorben. Am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts hatte in Europa eine neue Blüte des Holzschnitts eingesetzt. Zahlreiche Künstler nahmen sich der traditionsreichen, aber rund dreihundert Jahre ins Abseits gedrängten Drucktechnik wieder an. Die meisten dieser frühen Protagonisten sind heute weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten. Auch Heine Rath ist – selbst unter Fachleuten – nur wenigen ein Begriff.

        [KOREA] Ocherki Korei, sostavleno po zapiskam M.A. Podzhio, s prilozheniyem karty poluostrova Korei [i.e. Sketches of Korea, Compiled from the Notes of M.A. Podzhio, with a Supplement of a Map of the Korean Peninsula]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. of E. Yevdokimov, 1892. xvi, 391 pp. Octavo. With a folding lithographed map at rear. Contemporary brown quarter leather with cloth boards and gilt lettered title on the spine. Previous owners' inscriptions on the title page and front free endpaper, library stamps on the front free endpaper and verso of the title page, binding rubbed on extremities, overall a very good copy. First and only edition. Very rare. One of the earliest comprehensive descriptions of Korea in Russian, compiled by a Russian diplomat and Orientalist Mikhail Podzhio (1850-1889). He served in the Asiatic Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1873-75), the Russian Imperial mission in Beijing (1876-79), and later in the office of Rear Admiral Stepan Lesovsky (1817-1884), Commander of Russian Pacific fleet in 1880-1884. The book is based on Podzhio's diaries and private notes, original Chinese and Japanese sources studied during his service in the Far East, and ''all available books, articles and correspondences, which appeared in print in the last thirty years, mostly in foreign languages'' (Preface). The completed manuscript of Podzhio's work was lost by the associated of the Russky Vestnik magazine in 1885, and this book is based on the other variant recovered after Podzhio's death in 1889. The book contains geographical overview of Korea, describes its administration, court system, social classes, education, industries and trade, religion, family life, architecture, dress, food etc.; separate chapter is dedicated to the history of Christianity in the country. For the first time in Russian historiography the author analysed the trade treaties between Korea and China, the United States, Great Britain, Germany and Russia, ratified in the late 1870s - early 1880s. Podzhio was the first Russian Orientalist to believe that Japan-Korea Treaty of 1876 (which is considered an unequal treaty for Korea) was on the opposite of a positive civilizing influence for the country. The book also includes one of the earliest publications in Russian of the full text of the Japan-Korea Treaty of 1876, Treaties with China (1883), and Russia (1884, with the supplement for the Rules of Russo-Korean trade, and two special protocols). The detailed map of the Korean peninsula at rear was compiled by the author. Later he worked as a diplomat in Berlin, Belgrade, and Teheran, where he died in 1889 at the age of 39. Overall an important early Russian work on Korea. It was translated into German shortly after the Russian publication (Wien-Leipzig, 1895), and into Korean in 2010 (Roshia oegyogwan-i parabon kŭndae Han'guk. Seoul, 2010). Only two paper copies found in Worldcat (Library of Congress, University of Chicago).

        1891 ????: ?????? ????????? ?????? ? ?????? ????????? ??????????. [St. Petersburg's City Public Administration in 1891. Reports of the City Council and Other City Agencies].

      Tipografia Shredera S.-Peterburg 1892 - Octavo (24.3 x 15.5 cm), two parts in 1 vol. CCXLVI pp., including title, with 12 plates (1 double page), 1 folding plan and a large folding map of Saint Petersburg; 598 pp. with 1 folding table; owner's inscription to title, closed tear to large folding map. Original publisher's pictorial cloth. A fine example of an annual report of the city council and other Saint Petersburg institutions that provides a wealth of statistical and financial data, including population of the city, urban development and construction, important decisions implemented by the council and a financial report for the year. At the end of XX century Saint Petersburg was the largest city in the Russian Empire. Like other large European cities that faced a rapid development it started to struggle with a growing number of urban problems: housing, transport, public health, which were turning critical in the absence of an effective management. A solution for such large scale problems required not only a consistent urban policy and substantial investments, but also changes in the relationships between the state, the city authorities and citizens. Pressure for changes prompted Alexander II to conduct a major reform in 1870, under which the central government delegated responsibility for the urban development and general administration of cities to the local councils. The report offered here shows the results of the work of the city council 21 years after it assumed the responsibilities for managing the city. Of special interest is the financial part showing the revenues, the largest part of which came from taxes on property, trades, crafts and enterprises located in the city, and expenditure. All the real estate property that belonged to the ministries and members of the Imperial family was freed from taxation. As Saint Petersburg was the capital of the Russian Empire and, hence, home to the Imperial family and all the central government agencies, it was struggling to fill the city budget.

        Bismarck kommt!, aus der Reihe:"Politischer Bilderbogen" Nr.1

      (aufgefaltet ca. 50 x 64 cm), gefalteter Bilderbogen ORDENTLICHES EXEMPLAR, außen leicht unfrisch, die Knickkanten stellenweise fast unmerklich hinterlegt "Die zentrale Aussage des Bilderbogens läuft auf die Verächtlichmachung von Parlament und Regierung hinaus. Die 'Judenbörse' mitten im Reichstag, Chaos, Rauferein und das feige Verhalten der meisten Parlamentarier beim Auftreten Bismarcks denunzieren die Institution und das Parlament insgesamt. Bismarck wird als Repräsentant des von Regierungspolitik und Judentum bedrohten und vom Parlament im Stich gelassenen Bauernstandes präsentiert. Dass nur die Antisemiten, als Schutzmacht der Bauern, den 'Reichsgründer' freudig empfangen, rückt sie in eine politische Nähe zum Exkanzler, die es in Wirklichkeit nicht gab. Wie viele andere Parteien und Verbände des 'nationalen Lagers' versuchten auch die Antisemiten vom Bismarck-Kult zu profitieren, um sich politisch aufzuwerten und Respektabilität zu verschaffen." (Thomas Gräfe, "Antisemitismus in Gesellschaft und Karikatur des Kaiserreichs. Glöß' Politische Bilderbogen 1892-1901") Die Reihe erschien in 33 Folgen zwischen 1892 und 1901. Der Verlag schreibt dazu: "Dieser Bogen hat Aufnahme im Bismarck Minusmuseum zu Schönhausen gefunden. Er schildert mit drastischem Humor Bismarcks Eintritt in den Reichstag, wo eine grauenvolle Panik ausbricht". - Eines der Blätter bezeichnet "S. Horn" (sonst nicht weiter nachweisbar, sicher das Pseudonym des Zeichners), die Texte erschienen anonym, werden aber verlässlich dem Dresdner antisemitischen Schriftsteller Max Bewer zugeschrieben.

Being part of the artistic group "Donkey's Tale", Zdanevich collaborated with the leading avant-garde artists of his time, being especially close to Mikhail Larionov and Nataliya Goncharova. Together with his brother and another fellow artist Mikhaïl Le Dentu Zdanevich discovered and actively promoted the art of the Georgian painter Niko Pirosmani buying many of his works. Unlike his more famous brother, Kirill remained in Russia after the Revolution. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Versailles.

      - Farbholzschnitt, auf Japan, im Stock monogrammiert „HR (ligiert)", links unten signiert und datiert „Heine Rath 10", rechts unten bezeichnet „Eigen-Handdruck". Darstellungsgröße 25,2:41 cm, Blattgröße 27,7:41,8 cm. Verso im Unterrand bezeichnet "22 (13 - 22); 1.6. [19]17 H. Rath Versailles 448".- Verso an den Ecken Reste alter Montage. Heine Rat begann sein Studium 1892 an der Berliner Kunstakademie, von 1900 bis 1904 arbeitete er als Meisterschüler Carlos Grethes (1864-1913) in Stuttgart. Nach einer Zeit in Berlin und Werder/Havel und mehreren Reisen, unter anderem nach Skandinavien, Island, Spanien und Nordafrika, erhielt er 1913 eine Berufung an die Stuttgarter Akademie auf den "Lehrstuhl für Holzschneidekunst". In das erste Jahr der neuen Tätigkeit fiel der Beginn des 1. Weltkriegs, unter dem er – obwohl vom Wehrdienst zurückgestellt – physisch und psychisch litt. Ein vorhandenes Herzleiden verschlimmerte sich und er ist mit erst 47 Jahren in Stuttgart verstorben. Am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts hatte in Europa eine neue Blüte des Holzschnitts eingesetzt. Zahlreiche Künstler nahmen sich der traditionsreichen, aber rund dreihundert Jahre ins Abseits gedrängten Drucktechnik wieder an. Die meisten dieser frühen Protagonisten sind heute weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten. Auch Heine Rath ist – selbst unter Fachleuten – nur wenigen ein Begriff.

      [Indian Territory, near present-day Vinita, Ok.], 1892. 44pp. in Cherokee (titplepage in Cherokee and English). on eleven unfolded, unbound leaves (6 x 8 inches). Several leaves toned, small chips at margins, light dampstaining to a few leaves, else very good. A scarce imprint from what was likely the "third and last press made for printing with the Sequoyah syllabary" (CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA, cited in Foreman). Amory Nelson Chamberlin represented his family's third generation of missionaries to the Cherokee, operating from a church in Pheasant Hill, near what is now Vinita, Oklahoma. "Mr. Chamberlin devoted all his time to teaching, preaching, translating books, hymns and parts of the Bible and to any other service which promised to contribute to the mental, moral, spiritual and social development of the people who came under his influence. In order to promote his work to the best advantage he had repeatedly requested a hand-printing-press and finally through the headquarters of the missionary society the press was purchased and sent to Mr. Chamberlin....The page issued from this press was about the size of a post card but the number must have been legion. Tracts, programs, religious articles composed by him, passages of scripture and hymns he translated were set in type and printed by his own hand" - CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA. Scarce, not in Hargrett.
