        Aborigines from Meston's Wild Australia troupe performing a staged corroboree, Sydney, 1893

      Albumen print photograph, 155 x 205 mm, laid down on its original album page, blind stamped lower left Kerry & Co. Photo 308 Geo. St. Sydney; the albumen print is in finecondition. A rare and important image taken on a theatre stage with an elaborately painted backdrop of exotic tropical scenery. The men are part of Archibald Meston's Wild Australia troupe, a company comprised of Aboriginal men from North Queensland which the Queensland journalist and entrepreneur Meston brought to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne for performances in late 1892 and 1893. In January 1893 they performed at the Bondi Aquarium in Sydney, and the photograph we offer here was probably taken at this time, either by Kerry himself or one of his employees. Other images are known from this series which show the same group of performers in front of an identical backdrop. They are posed in a tableau representing a fight between Aborigines armed with spears and Queensland rainforest shields, and an Aboriginal police tracker armed with a rifle; the presence in those photographs of the rainforest shields with their distinctive designs confirms the North Queensland (and thus Meston) connection. Archibald Meston had previously been associated with the notorious enterprise of R.A. Cunningham, who took a group of Aborigines from North Queensland to Europe and North America in the 1880s (for a full account of this tour, see Roslyn Poignant,Professional savages : captive lives and western spectacle, New Haven : Yale University Press, 2004). In spite of his association with Cunningham, Meston was later appointed Southern Protector of Aboriginals for Queensland, a position he held from 1898 until 1903 (see Gael Newton, RA Cunningham’s Australian Aboriginal international touring company, in Artonview, National Gallery of Australia, no. 45, Autumn 2006, p 42).

        Stories from Homer. With twenty-four illustrations from Flaxman's designs. Twenty-second thousand.

      London:: Seeley and Co., 1892.. Small 8vo. x, 307 pp. Color illus. Full modern chocolate brown morocco, five raised bands, gilt spine title, all edges marbled. Fine. With a beautiful painting of two lovers in a scene called “The Cock Fight,” [also called “Young Greeks attending a Cock Fight,”] painted by Clare Brooksbank, signed with her initials in the bottom left-hand corner, after an 1846 “Neo-Grec” painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904). The original is in the Musée d'Orsay. “Gérôme portrays a couple of near-naked adolescents at the foot of a fountain. Their youthfulness contrasts with the battered profile of the Sphinx in the background. The same opposition is found between the luxuriant vegetation and the dead branches on the ground, and in the fight between the two roosters, one of which is doomed to die.” – Jean Leongerome.

With folding engraved portrait of the dedicatee (the Antwerp city physician Joh. van Buyten) by Arn. van Westerhout after Car. E. Biset, and 36 mostly folding engraved plates by P. van Sickeleers. Contemporary vellum.

      Myko Libri 2050; Nissen, BBI 1892; Pritzel 8947; Stafleu & Cowan 13.012; cf. Willebrands & Van 't Hoog (eds.), Traktaat van de kampernoeljes, genaamd duivelsbrood (Hilversum 2006). First edition of the earliest Dutch monograph on fungi, by Franciscus van Sterbeeck (1630-1693), a Flemish clergyman, botanist and mycologist. Clusius had done research on fungi at the end of the 16th century, and published the results as part of his Rariorum plantarum historia in 1601. However, Clusius's original manuscript for this part, together with his 87 original drawings, had been lost. Accordingly, the publisher had to use other (and rather inaccurate) illustrations for the 1601 edition. Afterwards, the lost manuscript reappeared, and Sterbeeck used it as a basis for his own work, adding much new material. All species of toadstools and mushrooms are treated in detail, with descriptions of their natural history, as well as their gastronomic and medical properties. The work includes observations on wild growing fruits, nuts, roots, herbs etc. Of special interest are the remarkably fine plates, realistically illustrating a large number of fungi and wild fruits. Lacking the frontispiece and the 10 leaves of the Index at the end. Binding slightly soiled and damaged. The author presented this copy in 1682 to the Capuchin Friars of the monastery at Tervuren near Brussels. A rare and beautiful book.

        The Nature of Gothic A Chapter of the Stones of Venice

      London/Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1892. Limited First Edition. Limp Vellum. Very Good. One of 500 copies, all on paper, printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith, and published by George Allen, with a preface by William Morris. 8vo (8" x 5.5".) [1], iv, [1], 127, [1] pp. Elaborate woodcut border on opening page; nine 10-line woodcut initials & numerous 6-line ones, 19 architectural figures in the text, two Kelmscott woodcut devices (front and back). Original limp vellum, yapped edges, spine lettered in gilt, page edges untrimmed. Handsome printing of the chapter from Ruskin's The Stones of Venice. Pages unopened except for the first two leaves. Bookplate of Noel Ledbrook Griffith. John Ruskin (1819–1900) had a strong influence on William Morris and the arts and crafts movement. One can assume that this work must have been an important one for William Morris, who stated in the preface, "In future days [this work] will be considered as one of the very few necessary and inevitable utterances of the century." "This chapter of The Stones of Venice, which Ruskin always considered the most important in the book, was first printed separately in 1854 as a sixpenny pamphlet. Morris paid more than one tribute to it in Hopes and Fears for Art." (Sparling). "This chapter of The Stones of Venice (1853) had previously been reprinted as a 4d. pamphlet by F.J. Furnivall on the occasion of the opening of the Working Men's College in 1853. Cook and Wedderburn, in their Library Edition of Ruskin's Works, add the following bibliographical note: 'The Kelmscott edition was set up from the 1886 edition of the complete work, and some misprints which crept into that issue are repeated.'" (Peterson). From the collection of John Carrol Collins.

It was published as a book in 1883 under the title Le Avventure di Pinocchio: Storia di un burattino (History of a Puppet), and quickly became a best-seller ...

        UN CAS DE RUPTURE. Album d'épreuve, reliure signée

      Paris, Ancienne Maison Quantin, 1892 - [UN CAS DE RUPTURE. Illustrations page à page par Eugène Courboin.] [Paris, Ancienne Maison Quantin, 1892.] 1 volume in-4 (32 x 24,5 cm) de 59 feuillets comprenant 103 dessins pleine page dont 7 tirages photographiques contrecollés (épreuves identiques à ceux tirés à part sur papier vélin). Soit un ensemble de 96 dessins différents tirés en héliogravure. Reliure de l'époque demi-maroquin rouge à la bradel, dos lisse, auteur et titre dorés. Reliure signée E. CARAYON. Excellent état. Infimes marques à la reliure. Intérieur frais. PREMIER TIRAGE. ALBUM UNIQUE CONSTITUÉ DE TIRAGES A PART DE L’INTÉGRALITÉ DES ILLUSTRATIONS DU VOLUME (à l'exception des illustrations de couverture, du faux-titre et du titre, qui n'ont pas été rassemblées ici). SUPERBE ILLUSTRATION D’EUGÈNE COURBOIN. Ce volume a été publié sous la direction artistique d'Octave Uzanne et achevé d'imprimer le 25 octobre 1891. L'édition a été tirée à 1.050 exemplaires dont 1.000 exemplaires sur papier vélin de cuve (avec 50 ex. sur Japon). Les dessins ont été héliogravés sur cuivre pat Th. Fillon et tirés en taille-douce par Lemercier. Il s'agit ici d'un album unique constitué vraisemblablement soit par un amateur, soit par l'imprimeur Quantin ? soit par une personne proche de l'illustrateur (Uzanne ?) ou autre. Il contient donc 103 tirages, tous en noir sur vélin de cuve (le même papier que le tirage définitif), dont 7 tirages photographiques sur papier citraté ayant servi au tirage en photogravure définitif (héliogravures). Ces tirages photographiques n'étant par nature (étant peu stable dans le temps) jamais conservés. Par ailleurs, il faut constater que le tirage à part des illustrations de Courboin permet de voir certaines illustrations dans leur ensemble quand le tirage définitif avec le texte autour en occulte une partie souvent non négligeable. La page 2 de cet album (qui correspond à la page 2 du livre) est composée avec le texte contrecollé, justifié, prêt à être photographié pour la photogravure définitive (voir photo). Ensemble unique. Un cas de rupture a été publié par Alexandre Dumas fils en 1854. "Un Cas de rupture. Il fut écrit pendant un séjour. forcé de l'auteur dans la prison où l'on enfermait les gardes nationaux qui avaient oublié leurs billets de garde, vous savez bien, le fameux « Hôtel des Haricots ». On y lit des variations — qui ne rappellent en rien Silvio Pellico — sur le régime cellulaire; c'est enlevé de verve. Alexandre Dumas fils, cependant, n'autorisa jamais la réimpression de cette fantaisie — ou du moins il ne l'a autorisée que très tard, il y a deux ans, quand la maison Quantin entreprit de faire du Cas de rupture une publication artistique — un peu encombrante et d'un format bors de proportion avec la donnée de cette bluette." Bulletin du Bibliophile, 1896, p. 60. Très bel ouvrage à la mise en page novatrice et avant-gardiste dirigé par Octave Uzanne. TRÈS BEL EXEMPLAIRE UNIQUE EN JOLI DEMI-MAROQUIN DE L’ÉPOQUE.

        Travels Amongst the Great Andes of the Equator

      London: John Murray,, 1892. With maps and illustrations. Second edition. Quarto. Original green cloth over bevelled boards, titles to spine gilt, decorative border to front cover and spine gilt, to rear cover in blind, edges untrimmed, brown coated endpapers, pocket to rear pastedown. Frontispiece, 19 plates, black and white illustrations to the text and 4 maps, 3 of them folding, 1 in pocket to rear pastedown. Spine gently rolled and toned, wear to extremities, restored bump to spine, top edge dust toned; a very good copy. Second edition. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper verso, "With the kind regards of the author, Edward Whymper, Oct. 11, 1905", the recipient's ownership inscription beneath, "A. McNicoll". In 1904 Whymper named a mountain in Yoho National Park, Canada, "Mount McNicoll", after David McNicoll, the Vice-President of the Canadian Pacific Railway; the recipient of this work is potentially a relative of David McNicoll. Whymper undertook a number of lecture tours in Canada from 1900 onwards to promote tourism on behalf of the Canadian Pacific Railway, including in 1905, when "he was injured in a train crash, after which he began to experience memory loss, failing eyesight, and fainting spells" (ODNB). This work is often considered Whymper's magnum opus. Whymper "travelled in 1879–80 to Ecuador with his former Matterhorn rival J. A. Carrel and the latter's cousin Louis Carrel, to test the physiological effects of low pressure at high altitudes and the phenomenon of 'mountain sickness'. They twice climbed Chimborazo (20,498 feet), the highest mountain in Ecuador, and other peaks including Cotopaxi (19,613 feet), an active volcano. Whymper also surveyed the area and collected over 8000 zoological and botanical specimens" (ODNB). The book combines a popular account of his ascents with his detailed scientific observations.

        Berdan's United States Sharpshooters in the Army of the Potomac 1861-1865

      The Price-McGill Company, , Minnesota 1892 - NAP indicates this is a first edition. We believe this copy to be signed by one of the sharpshooters. Across the top of the dedication page is a signature in pencil "B.F. Billings - 12 Fisth (?) Av Waltham Mass". Laid in the book is a pamphlet titled ".Roster. of Company "F" First Regiment. U. S. Sharpshooters. Berdan's E. F. Jackson. On page 5 among the privates is an entry for Billings, B. F., P.O. Waltham, Mass. Wounded at Hanover Court House, May 27, 1862; transferred to Medical Department; Discharged, Dec. 23, 1862. After it is some sort of pencil correction perhaps "Dn for U.S.U. 1866". The same hand has placed a "D" beside most of the entries (for deceased?). This pamphlet was printed by The Tuttle Company, Rutland, VT. As for the book, both hinges are split and mostly separated and the pages near the hinges are separating, up through the table of contents in the front and page 546 to the end in the rear, although in the rear the string binding is still attached to the pages. The green cloth covered boars are a bit bumped and rubbed at the edges. the titles are illegible on the spine and most of the gilt is rubbed out of those in the front. The outline of the prone sharpshooter can still be seen here. The pages that have not separated are tight, clean and unmarked. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent, & Co. Limtd, 1892.. Octavo, pp. [1-17] 18-293 [294-296: ads], inserted frontispiece, other illustrations in the text, original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in yellow-green. First edition. A "creepy" tale of black magic and witchcraft in early eighteenth-century Northamptonshire, loosely based on the story of Elinor Shaw, the last person burnt in England for the practice of witchcraft. The narrator is the victim of mesmerism and hallucinatory horrors, one of which is a gigantic blue dragon that materializes in the air. Wright has read, but claims not to have been influenced by Harrison Ainsworth's THE LANCASHIRE WITCHES (1849), which, although "useful as an exponent of the old beliefs of Lancashire," is "too long, and the characters are anything but sharply cut." Wright apologizes for the portions of his story that "are necessarily of a somewhat creepy nature," but he hopes that "mingled with the more serious features of the southern narratives," he has caught something of their spirit, "a quaintness, a naivety, a sly humour, that makes Northamptonshire in respect to these ancient and exploded theories, far and away the most interesting county in England." Bleiler (1978), p. 213. Reginald 15674. Wolff 7332. Spine panel darkened, spine ends and corner tips worn, outer joints mended, damp stain on front cover, a sound, good copy with tight and clean interior. A rare book. (#149386)

        THE SILVER DOMINO; OR SIDE WHISPERS AND LITERARY

      London: Lamley and Co., Exhibition Road, 1892.. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1-3] 4-365 [366: blank] [367: printer's imprint] [368: blank], original pictorial black cloth, all panels stamped in silver, white endpaper with floral pattern printed in gray. First edition, first printing. An anonymously published, ill-advised, savage attack on her critics, publishers, and the Victorian literary establishment which alienated almost all her professional contacts. Corelli, who believed in female superiority and her own genius, "enjoyed a period of great literary success from the publication of her first novel in 1886 until World War I. Corelli's novels sold more copies than the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling, although critics often derided her work as 'the favorite of the common multitude.' ... Mackay began her career as a musician, adopting the name Marie Corelli for her billing. Eventually she turned to writing and published her first novel, A ROMANCE OF TWO WORLDS, in 1886. In her time, she was the most widely read author of fiction. Her works were collected by Winston Churchill, Randolph Churchill, and members of the British Royal Family, among others. Mackay, who famously had little time for the press, faced criticism from the literary elite for her overly melodramatic writing. In THE SPECTATOR, Grant Allen called her 'a woman of deplorable talent who imagined that she was a genius, and was accepted as a genius by a public to whose commonplace sentimentalities and prejudices she gave a glamorous setting.' James Agate represented her as combining 'the imagination of a Poe with the style of an Ouida and the mentality of a nursemaid.'" - Wikipedia. "A key book in her career ..." - Wolff 1478. Her parodies include "Byron Loquitur," an account of the Silver Domino's encounter with the ghost of Lord Byron. A bright, very good or better copy. A lovely copy. The first printing is rare.

        Francesca BERTINI original signiertes Foto der "Diva des italienischen Stummfilms" original signed photograph

      8,5 x 13,5 cm tadelloser Zustand , near mint conditionLebenslange Echtheitsgarantie. Lifetime authenticity guarantee.Francesca Bertini (eigentlich Elena Seracini Vitiello * 11. April, nach anderen Quellen 5. Januar 1892 in Florenz ? 13. Oktober 1985 in Rom) war eine italienische Filmschauspielerin. Sie galt als die Diva des italienischen Stummfilms. Bertini war die Tochter einer Schauspielerin, wurde vom neapolitanischen Volkssänger Arturo Vitiello adoptiert und wuchs somit in Neapel auf, wo sie als Elfjährige ihre ersten Bühnenauftritte hatte. 1904 zog die Familie nach Rom, wo sie weiter Theater spielte und die Firma Film d?Arte Italiano Pathé auf sie aufmerksam wurde. Ab 1910 trat sie im italienischen Film auf, anfangs vor allem in auf weniger als 15 Minuten Spieldauer gerafften Verfilmungen klassischer Theaterstücke. Davon sind bis heute noch einige handkolorierte Shakespeare-Verfilmungen von Gerolamo Lo Savio oder auch Ugo Falena, mit dem sie in den frühen 1910er Jahren eng zusammenarbeitete, erhalten geblieben.Von 1912 bis 1915 bei der Celio Film und mehr noch von 1915 bis 1919 bei der Caesar Film wurde sie zum Filmstar und zur unbestrittenen Diva des italienischen Films aufgebaut. Unter der Regie von Baldassarre Negroni spielte sie 1912/13 in Lagrime e sorrisi, Histoire d'un pierrot und La maestrina ihre ersten wichtigen Rollen. Sie entwickelte sich zu einer markanten und starken Schauspielerpersönlichkeit mit oftmals aggressiv-leidenschaftlicher, aber auch zurückhaltender Darstellung innerlich widersprüchlicher Frauenspersonen. Bertini spielte sie mit natürlicher Gestik. Gemeinsam mit Gustavo Serena schuf sie 1915 ihren heute wohl bekanntesten Film, den in Neapel spielenden Klassiker des Verismo Assunta Spina, in dem sie eine leidenschaftlich liebende Frau zwischen zwei Männern spielt. Weitere wichtige Rollen hatte sie in La signora dalle camelie (1915), Odette (1916), Fedora (1916), Malìa (1917), La Tosca (1918), La donna nuda (1918) und La serpe (1919). In den 1920er Jahren zog sie sich zunehmend aus dem Filmgeschäft zurück. Am 8. August 1921 heiratete sie den Schweizer Bankier Paul Cartier. Nur sehr gelegentlich nahm sie Filmangebote wahr.1976 konnte Bernardo Bertolucci sie für die Rolle der Schwester Desolata in seinem Epos 1900 gewinnen. Der von Gianfranco Mingozzi gedrehte Dokumentarfilm L'ultima diva: Francesca Bertini (1982) ist eine Interview-Dokumentation der 90-jährigen Schauspielerin.Francesca Bertini starb im Alter von 93 Jahren und wurde auf dem Cimitero Flaminio der Hauptstadt Rom beigesetzt.[(Quelle: Wikipedia).

        The Catholicos of the East and his People.

      London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge,, 1892. Being Impression of Five Years' Work in the Archbishop of Canterbury's Assyrian Mission; an Account of the Religious and Secular Life and Opinions of the Eastern Syrian Christians of Kurdistan and Northern Persia (known also as Nestorians). Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered and decorated in gilt and black, brown coated endpapers. Folding map frontispiece, wood engravings to the text. Joints and extremities rubbed, spine darkened, very faint soiling overall, small bump to fore edge of both boards, fore edge spotted, internally clean. A very good copy. First and only edition of this important account of the Church of the East, uncommon in the original cloth. In 1886 Maclean (1858–1943) travelled to Urmia in Iranian Azerbaijan as the first head of Archbishop Benson's mission to the Assyrian Christians, "which had as its purpose not conversion, which its statutes forbade, but the strengthening of faith and religious practice" (ODNB). Despite opposition from Persian authorities, Maclean oversaw the establishment of a Syriac press and numerous schools for clergy and laypeople. He returned to his former parish at Portree, Skye, in 1891, co-authoring the present account and also writing an important grammar of Syriac (1895), followed by a dictionary (1901). In an address to the Lambeth Conference in 1908 he suggested that the Church of England was concerned not only "to restore these ancient Churches for their own sakes, but also one may confidently hope that in the future they will be able to do what we Westerns cannot do – they will be able to appeal to the Moslem mind" (cited after Taylor, Narratives of Identity: The Syrian Orthodox Church and the Church of England, p. 125).
