        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.

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.

        The Yellow Wall Paper [in] New England Magazine: An Illustrated Monthly. New Series, Vol. 5. Old Series, Vol. 11. September. 1891 - February, 1892

      New England Magazine Corporation, Boston, Mass 1892 - First edition. Royal octavo. 824pp. Illustrated. Rebound in buff colored buckram with applied paper label. Library label inside each board and the library name in ink on titlepage, one leaf (not part of The Yellow Wall Paper) smudged, but a tight very good or better copy. The first appearance of the famous short story, contained complete in the January, 1892 issue of New England Magazine, seven years before it appeared as a separate volume in 1899. The classic short story of psychological terror, of a discontented wife and mother who weaves a fantasy of repressed creative longing and sexuality out of the wall paper in her room.Ythis story of a woman's mental breakdown trapped in traditional marriage roles was inspired by Gilman's own life experience: it is "one of the most reprinted of all psychological horror stories . This feminist horror tale is Gilman's only work in the genre, but it is enough to ensure her an important place in its history." (Sullivan, p. 171). A nice copy of the first appearance, which unlike the 1897 edition, is illustrated. [Attributes: First Edition]

FIRST EDITION!"This book, dedicated to Charcot, is one of PIERRE MARIE's (1853-1940) most important contributions. It consists of thirty-eight lectures given at the Faculty of Medicine during 1891. Marie discusses normal anatomy, clinical symptoms and particularly the underlying pathology of many forms of spinal cord disease. In the preface he states that he has not tried to cover all such diseases, but only the more usual forms, and those he has tried to treat in a complete manner. The many illustrations are useful adjuncts to the descriptions of such conditions as insular sclerosis (multiple sclerosis), infantile paralysis (anterior poliomyelitis), tabes, ascending paralysis, and familial degenerative changes."

        THE SHORTER CATECHISM WITH PROOF TEXTS.

      [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.

        EPIDEMIOLOGICAL MAP / MAP OF 1892 RUSSIA CHOLERA EPIDEMIC: ????? ?????????? ??????? / No. 18. ????? ??????????? ????? ??????????????? ?????? ?? ???????? 1892 ?. [Map of the Russian Empire / No. 18. The General Overview of the Routes for the Spread of Cholera in the Epidemic of 1892].

      Lithograph in 2 colours (Very Good, some light toning along old folds), 36 x 41.5 cm (14 x 16.5 inches). - [St. Petersburg, circa 1893]. An extremely rare epidemiological map depicting the spread of the 1892 Cholera Epidemic across Russia, printed in Russian Cyrillic, lithographed in St. Petersburg shortly after the outbreak. This extremely rare map depicts the spread of the Russian Cholera Epidemic of 1892, which officially claimed 267,800 lives. The map is one of only a handful of Cholera maps to have been printed entirely in Russian Cyrillic, and was lithographed in St. Petersburg not long after the outbreak by C. de Castelli. The map embraces the western two-thirds of the Russian Empire, extending eastward just past Lake Baikal. The Russian Cholera Epidemic of 1892 was part of the Fifth International Cholera Pandemic (1881-96), and as shown here by a series of red arrows, the epidemic first entered Russian territory from Persia. From there it travelled across the Caspian Sea, through the Caucuses and then up northwestwards across the Steppes to infect Kiev, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Warsaw. Next, the epidemic wheeled eastwards, travelling across Siberia, almost as far as Irkutsk. Russia was especially vulnerable to Cholera due to the great poverty and low hygienic standards of many of its rural areas and urban slums. Moreover, the Tsarist regime’s implementation of health standards and medical systems was irregular and often not well coordinated. Russia had also suffered greatly during both the Third (1852-60) and Fourth (1863-75) International Cholera Pandemics. The horrendous catastrophe motivated the Russian authorities to call a Cholera Conference, held in St. Petersburg in December 1892, during which new medical regimes were agreed. Nevertheless, the epidemic in Russia continued into 1893, killing a further 30,000 people. Cholera maps printed in Russian Cyrillic are extraordinary, and the present work is extremely rare – we cannot trace even a reference to the map, let alone the location of another example. It was evidently extracted from an unidentified book or portfolio that featured a series of other like epidemiological maps (of which the present map is No. 18). The only other map from this series we have ben able to trace is a map of the Russian Influenza Epidemic of October 1889 to March 1890, in the Collection of the Library of Congress (No. 50 in the series). The Rise of Cholera as a Global Pandemic - It is not a coincidence that Cholera spurred the development of some of the first sophisticated works of medical cartography, as the disease quickly rose to become a global scourge by the early mid-19th Century. Cholera, a highly contagious gastrointestinal disease, incubated in pools of warm, contaminated water and spread by human contact. It had its origins in India’s Ganges Delta, where it had been a recurrent epidemic since ancient times. Traditionally, the disease’s spread had been limited to the Indian Subcontinent. However, in 1817, Cholera began to spread rapidly across Asia, carried initially by itinerant merchants and British soldiers. As shown on the present map, the First Cholera Pandemic (1817-24) began in Jessore, Bengal, near Calcutta, and within seven years would spread to infect hundreds of thousands of people from the Mediterranean to China. By 1818, Cholera had spread across India, affecting Bombay, and by March 1820 it had reached Siam, and then a couple months later the Philippines. By 1821, it had spread to Oman, in the west, and down to Java, Indonesia, in the southeast, and up to parts of China, in the northeast. By 1822, Cholera had spread as far as Japan, in the east, and Persia, Syria and the Caucuses, in the west. The following year, it reached as far as Astrakhan, Russia (on the Caspian), in the north, and as far as Zanzibar and Mauritius, off of Africa, in the south. For reasons that are not fully established the First Pandemic was stopped cold in 1824. It is theorised the that disease played itself out in most of the warmer regions, while the exceptionally severe winter of 1823-4 killed

        Original design for an 1892 Christmas card

      (Birmingham, England), 1892. Gaskin, Georgie. An original pen-and-ink drawing for a Christmas card designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family, together with a printed version of the card. Hodson, an important collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts, was a good friend of both William Morris and Georgie and Arthur Gaskin. Dated 1892, the card is illustrated with an elaborate grapevine design, reminiscent of the works of the Kelmscott Press, with children and birds incorporated into the pattern among the vines. The card is signed G. C. France: this was Georgie's maiden name, before she married Arthur Gaskin, a teacher and artist who produced woodcuts for the Kelmscott Press. Both Gaskins studied at the Birmingham School of Art, were strong proponents of the Arts & Crafts movement, and embraced the style and ideas of William Morris. Georgie and Arthur Gaskin were also well-known for their elegant handmade jewelry; Georgie designed the jewelry, and her pieces often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in the border of this Christmas card design. Drawing pasted on thick card, which is roughly trimmed; otherwise, the drawing and print are in fine condition. (Drawing measures 8 1/4 by 5 3/8 inches on a board that measures 8 1/2 by 5 11/16 inches; print is 7 1/8 by 4 15/16 inches on an 8 3/8 by 5 1/2-inch piece of card).
