        Autograph letter signed.

      Château Malrome near Bordeaux, ca. 1893. - 4to. 1¾ pp. Yvette Guilbert and Aristide Bruant are referenced in this letter to his friend, writer and art leader, Andre Marty. "The book could not be better. Yvette wrote me a very kind note. As for the two "japon" proofs, they are admirable. Do your best to request them. Geffroy and you know better than I what to do. Keep my copy of the lithograph I will pick it up when I come back and send me the clippings relative to our book. And these eight to Bruant". Signed, "Yours truly and my best regards to Mrs. Marty, H. de Toulouse Lautrec". - An exceptional letter making reference to his two greatest celebrities depicted in posters, Yvette [Guilbert] and [Aristide] Bruant. Lautrec did a complete set of illustrations for a book on Guilbert, and here he tells Marty how Guilbert was quite pleased. At the time of this letter, Lautrec was at the peak of his productivity. He unfortunately died in 1891 from syphilis and alcoholism. Letters signed with such a full bold signature, "H. de Toulouse Lautrec" are rare and most desirable and one talking about his work, more so. Some damage to edges. - Toulouse-Lautrec refers to Yvette Guilbert (1865-1944), French cabaret singer and actress epitomizing La Belle Époque, and Aristide Bruant, (1851-1925), French cabaret singer, comedian, and nightclub owner. Toulouse-Lautrec's famous posters immortalized both singers. Bruant is now perhaps best known as the man in the red scarf and black cape featured in Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec popular poster.

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

      Tours: Alfred Mame et fils, 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.

        Masque mortuaire en plâtre à patine

      1893 - J.-M. Charcot : Masque mortuaire en plâtre à patine brune. Patine doré jaune d’ictère. Hauteur: 31 cm largeur 20 cm. Charcot est mort le 16 août 1893 au lac des Settons au cours d’un voyage d’agrément entrepris pour se reposer d’une période harassante de travail avec deux de ses élèves et amis, Isidor Straus et Debove. Il est terrassé par un œdème du poumon et meurt quelques heures après la crise. Ses amis sont désarmés, choqués, par la brutalité de cette attaque. Le masque a été réalisé par Charmet le matin même de l’arrivée du corps à Paris, le 19 août 1893. Debove avait demandé à Brouardel, le père de la médecine légale française et élève de Charcot, des conseils pour réaliser ce masque. Celui - ci lui suggéra immédiatement Charmet. Il voulait en cela suivre les exigences d’authenticité du Maître. Brouardel lui avait dit « si tu demandes aux autres, ils appelleront naturellement Richer », ce à quoi Debove avait rétorqué qu’il voulait avoir un masque du maître tel qu’il avait été et non pas un artefact embelli et magnifié. Paul Richer, neurologue, professeur aux beaux - arts était le « plasticien » de l’école de la Salpêtrière. Quand Charcot avait voulu se faire élire à l’Académie – la coutume étant qu’un médecin s’y présente, auréolé, parmi ses titres et travaux, de publications artistiques, littéraires, témoignant d’une sensibilité humaniste – c’est vers Richer qu’il s’était tourné pour écrire ses deux publications sur le grotesque, le difforme dans l’art. La neurologie française était alors la première du monde et Charcot, le médecin le plus éminent sur cette terre, le tsar, les tycoons américains, les premiers multimilliardaires, le sultan de l’Empire Ottoman, tout le monde se pressait chez lui. La bataille faisait rage autour du vieux maître, pour prendre sa succession, Déjerine, Pierre Marie, ennemi s mortels à la Faculté, Alix Joffroy à Sainte - Anne, Brissaud en embuscade . Debove et Straus quoique amis personnels de Charcot était de « petits » élèves. Il fallait faire vite. Brouardel sensible a leurs inclinations véristes, dépêche à sept heures du matin, le corps à peine arrivé à l’hôtel particulier du Maître, 217 Boulevard Saint - Germain , un jeune mouleur, Charmet qui travaillait pour l’Institut de Médecine Légale de Paris. Le moule est réalisé. Paul Richer arrive, on lui dit qu’il est trop tard. Il en sera tiré trois exemplaires, deux avec cette patine doré pour Debove et Straus, un pour la Faculté avec une patine orangée imitant la chair. Le moule fut ensuite brisé et placé dans la petite chapelle Charcot au Cimetière Montmartre, à côté de la porte de bronze verdi. Debove à sa mort léguera le sien à la Salpêtrière, il est toujours visible dans une petite vitrine à la Chapelle. L’autre fut conservé longtemps dans la famille d’Isidor Straus avant de réapparaitre aujourd’hui. Le troisième, d’abord à la Faculté, fut transporté au Musée d’Histoire de la Médecine. Les vœux de Debove et Straus sont exaucés : nous avons devant nous le maître tel qu’il fut en réalité. Avec cette bouffissure très XIXe siècle du visage, les cernes marqués, les plis, les yeux vides, comme un acteur de théâtre japonais mort à soixante - huit ans, juste un an avant le début de l’affaire Dreyfus qui fera basculer la France dans une autre époque.

        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.

      London and New York: Macmillan and Co. 1893. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH in original cloth of Hertz's collected papers on electromagnetic waves; the foundation for wireless communication. "By inducing the waves to produce an electrical spark at a distance, with no apparent connection between the oscillator and the spark gap, and by moving the sparking apparatus so that the length of the spark varied, Hertz proved beyond question the passage of electric waves through space" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 377).Originally published in German in 1892, the collected edition gathers together Hertz's important journal publications from 1887-1892 with the addition of an introduction in which Hertz surveys and analyzes his work of the past five years.

        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.

        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.

        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.
