        Photographs of Views of Sydney, 1842. From sketches by John Rae, M.A

      Sydney: Charles Potter, 1893. Large oblong album of 27 original photographs mounted on card with letterpress title-page; some moderate foxing of the card stock (not affecting photographs), otherwise very good condition, bound in gilt lettered full dark blue morocco by the Government Binder. Rare and sumptuous album of early Sydney prepared at the artistic pinnacle of Government printing and binding.John Rae (1813-1900), a talented amateur artist, was actively involved in the use of photography, and as early as 1855 gave two lectures on the subject at the Sydney School of Arts. Several of Rae's early drawings are thought to have been done with the aid of photography, an interest he shared with his friend John Skinner Prout.The Sydney Morning Herald mentions in September 1855 that Rae had recently built a camera obscura on the roof of his house "Hilton" in Darlinghurst. In 1900 the Bulletin praised his keen artistic perception and considered his collection of views of Sydney as one of the best extant.This fine album, prepared by the Government Printer, consists of 27 full-page photographs of these earlier Sydney watercolours. It is recorded that these sketches were sent to the Calcutta Exhibition in 1883 and to the Centennial International Exhibition in 1888 and gained much favourable comment.The views include: Macquarie Street, Bent Street, Hyde Park, George Street, York Street and Rushcutter's Bay.

        Aux Indes et en Australie dans le yacht le "Sunbeam".

      Alfred Mame et fils, Tours 1893 - Quarto, with many illustrations, some taken from photographs, gilt edges, attractive in original ornate pictorial cloth. The splendid first French edition, which puts the English edition of 1890 quite in the shade. It is scarce - and is not in fact recorded by Ferguson - although almost half the book is devoted to the Australian portion of the voyage.Lord and Lady Brassey made several cruises around the world in their yacht Sunbeam. Lady Brassey's account of their earlier voyage published in 1879 was very popular and went through numerous editions. Her last voyage was undertaken in 1886-7: she died before the cruise was completed and her grieving husband completed her work for publication. He later authorised this French version, which was translated by Gaston Bonnefont.The many fine plates and illustrations are after designs by R.T. Pritchett, and engraved by Whymper, Cooper and Pearson. There are almost too many to comment on - more than 200 in total - but the work is particularly rich with nautical scenes, as well as charming vignettes ranging from street scenes to details of Australian and Pacific natural history.

        Traité De Lithographie Artistique

      Paris, published for the author by Soci?t? des Imprimeries Lemercier et Journal l'Artiste, in French, 1893 Recognized after publication as, "by far the best book known on the technical side of lithography." [Curtis, Some Masters of Lithography, p. 179] and described in context of the history of printing as, "the first technical manual on artistic lithography since the pioneering (1822) work of Englemann" [Cates & Hitchings, Color Revolution, p. 22], the treatise espouses making lithographs directly on stone and provides a nonpareil exposition including use of crayons, papers and stones. The section on making color lithographs by the 4-inks process, which uses separate stones for 4 primary colors (red, yellow, blue, black), is illustrated with a suite of progressives that is thought to be the most complete illustration of the 4-inks process in a book to that time, with the finished color lithograph, proofs for the 4 stones and the key line drawing, believed the first published with a progressives set. The subtractive RYB primary color technique, greatly refined since its first development by Le Blon, achieved widespread recognition after publication of the 1891 Toulouse-Lautrec poster, "Moulin rouge: La Goulue". "La Goulou exploited Duchâtel?s printing process." [Jobling & Crowley, Graphic Design, p. 81] The method was also used by Duchâtel for another illustration, "Femme Prête à Sortir" by Lunois, among the earliest color lithographs by an artist made from a stone drawing with the 4-inks process, for a book. EDITION NOTE: The first edition, limited to 200 unnumbered examples, preface by Leonce Bénedité, plates printed by Lemercier, text by E. Capiomont, each wrapper side decorated with a different commissioned Henri Patrice Dillon lithograph signed in the plate. AVAILABILITY: Rare and a worldwide institution search finds 17 holdings for the first edition, including Harvard, Library of Congress, the National Library of France, British Library, NY Public Library, Grolier Club, Boston Athenaeum, Newberry Library, and the Metropolitan Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art and Rijksmuseum. EDOUARD DUCHÂTEL: A key figure in the development of modern color lithography as an artistic medium during the Belle Époque, Duchâtel took advantage of the technical advances made by Jules Cheret and the more sophisticated color theory systems developed by James Clerk Maxwell, Charles Blanc, and Robert Steinheil that made possible accurate reproduction of auxiliary colors without hand coloring. As essayeur of the celebrated Lemercier printing department, ("Lemercier surpassed in quality all other printers of chromolithographed plates." [Twyman, History of Chromolithography, p. 230]), he was instrumental in assisting artists with making proofs, including for Redon, Carrière and Fantin-Latour. André Mellerio in "La lithographie originale en couleurs", p. 25 described him as, "the artistic heart of the firm." Duchâtel wrote and illustrated the text, commissioned the original lithograph prints that demonstrate possibilities for the artistic lithograph medium and supervised the production and self-published the work, for its intended readership of artists & printers. "Duchâtel taught many leading French print artists how to make lithographs." [Pennell, Lithography and Lithographers, p. 166] ILLUSTRATIONS: 13 plates by Duchâtel demonstrate technical aspects of lithography, focusing on the possibilities available to artists with the use of different papers, crayons, stones, etc. and featuring an important suite of six lithographed plates, which are believed to demonstrate more completely than any prior publication the subtractive color process that uses a separate template stone for 4 primary colors. There are also 12 original lithographs that demonstrate artistic lithography, each signed and inscribed to Duchâtel in the plate, each printed on a different paper. The artist lithographs were commissioned from: E. Bertrand, Félix-Hilaire Buhot, Henri Patrice Dillon, Dulac, Henri Fantin-Latour, Fauchon, Fuchs, Camille Lefèvre, Alexandre Lunois, Paul Maurou, Eugène-Louis Pirodon and Vogel. FORMAT: Distinctive pasted marbled paper boards, octavo sewn with handmade, 'heathered' endpapers, the spine with a mounted black morocco leather lettering device with title stamped in gold leaf, preserve the original fragile paper wrappers, each side decorated with a different b/w Dillon lithograph. CONDITION: Good, the interior without cockling and cleaner & brighter than customary, for the work was often heavily used and some of the papers it was printed on were subject to heavy foxing. Pages: slight scattered foxing; clean, except many pages with slight spotting in top margin, a few with top edge toning. / Wrappers: expertly mounted on lightweight card stock of a complementary color, upper side with wear near crown and a chip near bottom corner with some loss, top fore-edge corner neatly excised, the Dillon lithograph unaffected, title preserved in full, but with loss of 12 characters from the limitation statement, retaining "première édition à 20", from, "première édition à 200 exemplaires"; a short pencil note on excellent condition of Plate V on the rear; lower side excellent, light soiling, scattered foxing. / Covers: Very Good, slight edgewear, sides with light linear abrasions / Lettering Device: Fine / Gilt: Fine. / Binding: Excellent. SIZE: 316 x 250 mm (12.44 x 9.84 inches). PAGINATION: Complete, 52 pages + 25 plates, 7 lithographed b/w plates with 24 figures + suite of six progressives including the black ink key line drawing + 12 lithographs on different papers, 9 b/w, (3 mounted, the Buhon, Dillon and Vogel), and two tinted, one color. SECOND EDITION: A 2nd edition, expanded & revised, with different title, "Manuel de lithographie artistique" and different illustrations, was published in 1907 by Minot. ADDITIONAL REFERENCES: D. Druick, Bulletin 19, NGC, A Note on the Large Bathers Colour Lithograph, appendix, p. 15. Twyman, History of Chromolithography. Wittrock, Toulouse-Lautrec, pp. 35-36. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

      Dresden, 24. X. 1893.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "In Beantwortung Ihrer geschätzten Zuschrift danke ich Ihnen im Voraus für die freundliche Beachtung welche Sie in Ihren Werken meinen Opern zutheil werden lassen [...] Den Klavierauszug zu Thusnelda schicke ich Ihnen in [den] nächsten Tagen direct zu.

        Fasana 1893-1895 III Australie. Photograph album of New South Wales & Victoria, including Five portraits of Aborigines

      Ca 1893.. A photograph album commemorating the visit of the Austrian screw steam sloop "Fasana" to Australia. In 1893, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este (1863-1914), heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, traveled the world, recovering from tuberculosis. Franz Ferdinand's place in history is secured by him being in the wrong place at the wrong time - his assassination by a Serbian nationalist precipitated World War I. Science was the journey's official purpose and Franz Ferdinand traveled on the torpedo ram cruiser "Kaiserin Elisabeth", one of Austria's then most modern ships. It seems possible that the Fasana may at some time been accompanying Franz Ferdinand on part of his journey. The Fasana remained in the East Indies through at least February 1894. The album is composed of 50 albumen photographs on numbered card leaves. The first 22 photographs are of Sydney, Blue Mountains & 2 aboriginal portraits by Henry King. The following 28 photographs are of the city of Melbourne, other parts of Victoria & aboriginal portraits by J. W. Lindt. Image size 8 x 6" mounted on cardboard album leaves 15 x 12 1/2". Album oblong 4to (16x 13"). Medium green cloth with title "Fasana 1893-1895 III Australie" in white on the front board. Cloth a bit dusty, the first two leaves a bit soiled on the margins. The first photograph with some abrasion on the image and a bit sunned. One or two others a bit lighter, the balance very dark and in very good condition. The first photo is of a ship in Sydney harbor - this is not a signed King photo, and is likely to be a picture of the Fasana - she attracted quite a crowd, sitting on the banks. The five portraits of the Australian aborigines are striking. 1. Aust. aborigine [climbing tree]. King 1430; (Trove locates it only at the Powerhouse Museum) 2. No title (studio shot of three aboriginal women and baby) (likely by King, with 'J4' in the image, no other number) (Trove locates it only at the SLV). The Lindt portraits - 3. "Coontajundra [man] & Langingubble [woman] Workii tribe NT Australia"- evocative and affectionate portrait of a couple, both with traditional scarring. (Lindt 2140) (Trove locates it only at the SLV); 4. Workii tribe NT (Lindt 2139) (Trove locates it only at the National Gallery of Australia) 5. Australian Aboriginals 9. (Likely by Lindt, but unnumbered). This composition poses a man with a spear, a woman seated with a boomerang and a dead kangaroo at their feet, along with another boomerang. (Trove locates it only at the SLV). The New South Wales photographs include numbered photographs by King- Manly, Sydney from North Shore, Neutral Bay, Sydney from Sholl Cove North Shore; Sydney Harbor from Botanical Gardens, Bondi Bay, King St. looking East from George, General Post Office, George St. looking south from Bridge, University Medical Hall, Hyde Park, The Austral (sinking), Zig Zag railway, NSW, Orphan Rock, Lovette Leap, Australian Gum Trees Kammbla Valley, Katoomba Cascade, Katoomba Falls and two portraits of aborigines (see above). The Victorian photographs include numbered and unnumbered photographs by Lindt - Victoria- Fitzroy City from Cascade Tower, (city of Melbourne), Collins St from Watson's Imperial Hotel, Melbourne Collins St from Bourke St (w trams), Grand Hotel from Parliament, Victoria Parade (trams and Commercial Hotel), Melbourne Exhibition Building, Melbourne Town Hall Organ (then one of the largest in the world), Melbourne Parliament House, Melbourne Law Courts (w. Bank of NZ, buildings, Collins & Queens St), Melbourne, Broken Hill Chambers, Queen St. There are also some charming snapshots (4x3") of (Boys swimming in the Yarra, perhaps near Abbotsford, as there is also a photo of large building, possible Abbotsford Nunnery), Valley with houses outside of Melbourne, same valley with a large water wheel), Healesville from Edgecombs Tower, Fernshaw, one mile bend, Fernshaw, Morley's track, Fernshaw (?) river near Surveyors camp, (bush shot), Morley's track, (bush shot), Mathinna Falls upper cascade, (waterfall), (bush shot) (ferns in garden), and the aboriginal portraits (see above). An interesting album, volume III of a suite, which unfortunately, are not present here.

        Essays on Vegetarianism

      London: The Vegetarian Publishing Office,, [1893]. Being a collection of articles contributed to "The Vegetarian". Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, foliate border to boards in blind, pale yellow endpapers. Spine rolled and a little faded, tips bumped and a little worn, small ink annotation to front pastedown, some stains to boards, hinges starting; a very good copy. First edition in book of this eloquent collection of articles, originally contributed by Hills to The Vegetarian, an independent magazine founded by him in 1889, and to which Gandhi subscribed and also contributed. Hills (1857?-1927), a director of Thames Ironworks and a humanitarian and philanthropist, was the first President of the London Vegetarian Society, a breakaway branch set up in 1888 by some of the more radical members of The Vegetarian Society, originally founded in Manchester in 1847. The origins of the London society lay partly in a resurgence of interest in vegetarianism in London during the latter half of the 19th century, with the first London vegetarian restaurant set up in 1876. Ten years later, there were 12 vegetarian restaurants in London, which "had the advantage of being both cheap and respectable" as well as being safe places for women to go alone (Spencer, p. 275). Hills, a great advocate for raw food and a former athlete, was also anxious to "break the image the public had that meat was essential for muscular energy" (ibid., p. 278). He founded the Vegetarian Cycling and Athletic Club and was President of the London Vegetarian Rambling Club. Scarce - OCLC locates just four copies: British Library, Cambridge, National Library of Scotland, and the National Library of New Zealand.

        Otserki naschego poreformennogo obshcshestvennago chozjajstva. [Russian, i.e.: Studies of Our Post-Reform Economy].

      S.-Petersburg, A Benke, 1893. 8vo. Bound with the original printed green front wrapper in a beautiful green half calf with gilt lettering to spine. Front wrapper brownspotted. Bottom 3 cm. of p.1-2 cut off, shaving a few lines off. A few underlinings to the first leaves. XVI, 353, (1) pp. + 29 tables, numbered I-XVI (with a,b,c's: IIIa-b, IVa-h, Va-c, VIa-b, VIIa-b, Xa-bXIIIa-b), on 16 leaves, 12 of which folded, most of them large + 2 leaves of explanation in between.. The exceedingly scarce first edition of Danielson's groundbreaking work on the Russian economic development, which is widely considered the bible of Russian liberal economic thought. Danielson here proposed a way for the Russian economy to consolidate itself without foreign money by - highly controversially - claiming that capitalist industrialization was possible without any change in the political system and emphasizing and defending the peasant class, which so many socialists of the time readily proclaimed doomed. Danielson's economic philosophy was not only pioneering in contemporary Russian economics, it also anticipated many solutions to problems that still face some of the Third World countries today.Danielson famously stated: "The problem facing us could have been summed up in the following terms: What should we do to bring our industry up to the level of Western industry, in order to prevent Russia from becoming a vassal of more advanced countries, and at the same time raise the living standards of the people as a whole? What we did, instead, was to identify large-scale modern industry with its capitalist form, thus reducing the problem to the following dilemma: To what should we sacrifice our cottage industries - to our own capitalist industry or to English industry? When the issue was presented in this way - and this is how it was presented - our cottage industries were doomed and we began to propagate our own capitalist industry". [The present work, pp. 390-91]."[Danielson] reasserted that Russia allegedly lacked foreign markets and reaffirmed that furthering large-scale industry - that it, capitalist development - was prejudicial to Russia's interests. He further condemned the policy of industrialization based on "outrageous protectionism" and suggested that it was still possible for Russia to go back to reliance on agrarian communes and artisanal production. In sum, he believed that Russia could avoid becoming "a tributary of more advanced countries" and that it could foster a non-capitalist, state-controlled industrialization that would increase both productivity and welfare" (Spulber, "Russia's Economic Transitions", p. 43)."[The present work] was written at the suggestion of Marx himself. Danielson made every effort to emphasize the differences between himself and the economic publicists who "defended the people's cause from a narrow peasant point of view". [He] lost no opportunity to refer to the authority of Marx and Engels, even quoting from his private correspondences with them. Nevertheless, there can be no possible doubt that Danielson belonged to the legal Populists". (Walicki, A History of Russian Thought, P. 432).Danielson is often compared to Vasily Vorontsov and the two are considered the major exponents of narodnik economics. Danielson, however, should be distinguished from Vorontsov in regard to the factors that cause underconsumption: contraction in the purchasing power of the popular masses (and not the inability of capitalists to consume the surplus value). Danielson's analysis therefore falls into the school of underconsumption theory, initiated during the classical era of Political Economy by Sismonde de Sismondi. "According to Danielson, capitalist development reduces the number of workers (formerly self-employed craftsmen, small manufacturers, farmers or even laborers) through rapid increase in productivity. This leads to an ever smaller number of workers handling an ever larger mass of means of production, and accordingly also the number of mass consumers, since it marginalizes all those who are being pushed into the industrial reserve army, depriving society of their purchasing power. Crises therefore emerge as a result of contraction of the internal market and of popular consumption." (MILIOS, "Tugan-Baranowsky and effective Demand", p 4.). Danielson's analysis of the contraction of popular consumption linked his theory of crises with the Theory of Relative Pauperisation, thereby adopting a version of the "absolute immiseration" thesis.Danielson - initially a self-proclaimed Marxist - translated Marx's "Das Kapital" into Russian just two years after the first German edition appeared (thus being responsible for the first translation of the work into any language) and corresponded heavily with Marx and Engels up until the end of their lives. He was their primary source of information on the economic situation and development in Russia. While Danielson's research progressed and his own economic philosophy developed, he moved away from the popular Marxist economic doctrine, however, and eventually the famed Marx-translator became the influential critic of Marxism.The theory of Danielson's "Studies of Our Post-Reform Economy" represents "the first attempt to pose and find solutions to problems that still face some of the Third World countries today". Danielson he was "the first to realize that economic backwardness creates its own specific problems, and that underdeveloped countries not only should not but cannot model their development on that of the advanced countries of Western Europe. (Walicki, "A History of Russian Thought", p. 434)

        Military Costumes in Old Japan

      1893. OGAWA, K. Military Costumes in Old Japan. 34 pp. Illustrated with 15 black-and-white plates reproducing photographs taken by K. Ogawa. Folio, bound in paper wrappers bound Japanese-style, side-sewn with new blue ribbon, in new cloth box. Tokyo: K. Ogawa, [1893]. |~||~||~||~| Fifteen black and white plates reproducing photographs taken by K. Ogawa, under the direction of Chitora Kawasaki of Ko-yu-kai (Tokyo Fine Art School), showing military costumes from the Fujiwara through Ashiga periods (the 10th through 16th centuries). Ogawa Kazuma (1860-1929) was one of Japan's premier nineteenth-century photographers. Introduced to photography in 1873 while at missionary school in Tokyo, he is one of the most celebrated early Japanese photographers and a founder of the first Japan Photographic Society. He spent three years in the United States learning portrait photography; thus he is considered the first Japanese photographer to study abroad. "In 1894 he began copperplate printing, which enabled the simultaneous printing of type and photographs for the first time" (History of Japanese Photography, p. 356). As the preface states, other photographs in these volumes were supplied by the Englishman William Kinimond Burton (1853-1899) and Kajima Seibei (1866-1824); both of these men were instrumental in the development of photography as a commercial art form in Japan. A two-page preface precedes the plates and a brief, descriptive text is printed below each photo. The half-tone illustrations appear on rectos only and were printed by the National Chemigraph Company of St. Louis. Covers show general, light soiling and a bit of wear at corners, else clean. Very good copy overall.
