        Mme Abdala - Le Café Concert

      L'Estampe originale 1893 - - L'Estampe originale, Paris 1893, 31,5x43cm, en feuilles. - Estampe originale d'Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, de la série Le Café-Concert éditée par les Publications de l'Estampe Originale. Très rare et belle lithographie faisant partie des 500 épreuves originales tirées sur vélin par l'imprimerie d'Edouard Ancourt. Portrait signé Toulouse-Lautrec de Mme Abdala, grande figure du comique burlesque et artiste d'une grande modernité. Montorgueil la qualifie dans sa préface à cette série d'estampes d'« étoile de première grandeur ». Il la décrit en ces termes : « elle s'est exercée à la folie dès qu'elle a eu l'âge de raison. Tout ce que rêvent les petites filles qui tirent la langue, louchent, se fendent la bouche, s'agrandissent les paupières, elle les a faites. Elle a pris le contrepied de l'art féminin : elle met son charme à s'enlaidir ». Véritable ode au café-concert, cette série réalisée par Toulouse-Lautrec et Henri-Gabriel Ibels capture l'essence de la vie parisienne et le dynamisme de ses nuits. Les planches étaient accompagnées d'un pamphlet de l'écrivain Georges Montorgueil chantant les louanges de ces établissements injustement méprisés, qu'il qualifie de « toniques pour la vie moderne ». Bien loin de l'atmosphère empesée des salles de théâtre ou de concert, ces lieux du « sans-gêne » prennent un essor considérable à la Belle Epoque et lancent des artistes d'une remarquable modernité. Les deux peintres dressent ici le portrait des vedettes de cabaret les plus célèbres de l'époque, dans le mouvement de leur « chorégraphie épileptique » ou la grâce de leurs poses. Les grands noms des cafés-concerts, dont Jane Avril, Yvette Guilbert - devenue muse de Toulouse-Lautrec - ou Aristide Bruant apparaissent sous des traits francs et assurés, inspirés des gravures sur bois japonaises. En filigrane, l'influence de l'impressionnisme est également palpable - le style prenant un élan à la fin du siècle. Toulouse-Lautrec figure d'ailleurs régulièrement au salon des Indépendants depuis 1889 et y livre sa vision du Tout-Paris, allant des salons de la haute société aux bordels de la capitale en passant par les cabarets dont le Moulin Rouge, pour qui il réalise une affiche restée célèbre. Autre maître de l'affiche et du dessin, Ibels aura plusieurs collaborations avec les éditions de l'Estampe Originale, dont une série de dessins sur le cirque et réalise en parallèle de nombreuses illustrations pour des journaux populaires, dans un style vigoureux et incisif. Rare estampe en parfait état de conservation, qui renvoie aux fastes du "Paris by night fin de siècle". [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original print by Henri de Toulouse, from the series Le Café-Concert published by the Publications de l'Estampe Originale. Very rare and beautiful lithography is one of the 500 original proofs drawn on vellum by Edouard Ancourt's printing press. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

De koning van Pruisen was met 20.000 man Nederland binnengevallen om de belediging te wreken die de patriotten zijn zuster Wilhelmina, de vrouw van stadhouder Willem V, hadden aangedaan door haar op weg naar Den Haag bij Goejanverwellesluis tegen te houden en terug te sturen naar Nijmegen. Begin december kregen de gevangenen die de ontberingen en zware mishandelingen hadden weten te overleven, toestemming om naar huis terug te keren. Onder hen was jonkheer Alexander Philip van der Capellen, de commandant van de vesting Gorinchem. Hij overleed twee dagen na zijn vrijlating. Op 14 augustus 1788 werd het boekje in Amsterdam verboden en op 9 januari 1789 te Haarlem.

        Morte Darthur.] The Birth, Life and Acts of King Arthur of his noble knights of the round table, their marvellous enquests and adventures, the achieving of the San Greal and in the end Le Morte Darthur, with the dolorous death and departing out of this world of them all. The text as written by Sir Thomas Malory and imprinted by William Caxton. now spelled in modern style. With an introduction by Professor Rhys and embellished with many original designs by Aubrey Beardsley.

      London: Dent, 1893 - 2 volumes, large square octavo (240 x 190 mm). Contemporary full vellum over bevelled boards by Cedric Chivers of Bath for Bumpus of London, gilt panelled spines with hand-painted art nouveau-style lettering and scrolling floriate motifs, below which, on a field of gilt dots, an overall pattern of stylised roses and rose leaves (volume I) and tulips and tulip leaves (volume II), sides with two-line gilt border enclosing a frame of hand-painted intertwining roses and rose leaves (volume I) and intertwining tulips and tulip leaves (volume II), both on a field of gilt dots, panel on each front cover with a hand-painted scene taken from Beardsley's designs, back covers with three-line gilt panels, top edges gilt, untrimmed, three-line gilt turn-ins, floriate endpapers. Some shallow scratches and light abrasions to bindings, customary general pale toning internally, slight offsetting from plates to letterpress. A very good set. Gravure frontispieces, 18 full page wood engravings (including five double-page), numerous text illustrations, and approximately 350 repeated designs for chapter headings and borders, all by Aubrey Beardsley. First Beardsley edition, one of 1,500 copies on ordinary paper; another 300 were printed on Dutch handmade paper. This copy in a bright and spectacular example of a "vellucent" binding, by Cedric Chivers of Bath, unsigned but a characteristic example of this style. Chivers invented a way to treat vellum so that it became translucent ("vellucent"): the cover design would be painted on a separate sheet and then a thin sheet of this translucent vellum would be laid over it; gilt tooling would then be applied over the top of this. In his catalogue of Books in Beautiful Bindings (c. 1905), Chivers describes the Beardsley Morte D'Arthur as "bound in whole vellucent from a design by the illustrator of the book. A figure panel enclosed in a floral border". The hand-painted cover illustrations for this set reproduce two of Beardsley's designs, volume one depicting "How Four Queens Found Launcelot Sleeping" (p. 184) and volume two "The Achieving of the Sangreal" (frontispiece). "Commissioned by British publisher J. M. Dent in 1892 and first published in twelve monthly magazine instalments between June, 1893, and mid-1894, Aubrey Beardsley's Morte Darthur was one of the most original and certainly one of the most controversial of the nineteenth-century artistic reinterpretations of Malory. Although his illustrations for the Morte established Beardsley as the voice of the 1890s, he was until that time largely an unknown young artist La Morte Darthur proved to be an immediate sensation upon publication and the impact of Beardsley's Arthurian illustrations was tremendous Today, Beardsley's illustrations for the Morte, which constituted almost half his lifetime's artistic output, survive as the first example of modern Arthurian book illustration; and they remain arguably the best experimental visual reinterpretation of the Arthurian world. With their bold lines, strong visual themes, and numerous memorable but unconventional details, the Morte 'pictures' (which is how Beardsley himself referred to them) created an important – although admittedly idiosyncratic – symbology and iconography. Often shockingly overt in their sexuality and eroticism, the illustrations rejected the aesthetic of the Pre-Raphaelites who were Beardsley's original mentors and offered a revisionist and parodic treatment of their medievalism. Ultimately, Beardsley went far beyond his original intention to 'flabbergast the bourgeois' of his day; he also challenged generations of readers and artists to view Arthurian society through his own modernist lens" (Barbara Tepa Lupack, Illustrating Camelot, 2008, Chapter 4). A masterpiece of book illustration in a striking binding. Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England from 1790-1914, 314. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Poems. Printed After the Original Copies of Venus and Adonis, 1593. The Rape of Lucrece, 1594. Sonnets, 1609. The Lover's Complaint.

      Kelmscott Press, Middlesex 1893 - A rare example in the original vellum binding with no major defects. The original string ties are in nice condition (couple of tiny nicks). The vellum is toned to a nice even yellow-white. Vellum can sometimes take on odd distortions, but this copy has simply wrapped (and yapped) evenly around the textblock as one would hope. Vellum boards curl up a little when not tied down. Nice in the hand for reading. Original gilt on spine still bright. Armorial bookplate with some spotting from the paste glue underneath (and offsetting mildly to the opposite blank). Book has only a touch of foxing to the bottom edge of the textblock (very minor) and a couple of stray spots -- a very bight and clean copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Alfred, Lord Tennyson and His Friends. A Series of 25 Portraits and Frontispiece in Photogravure from the Negatives. Reminiscences by Anne Thackeray Ritchie. With an Introduction by H. H. Hay Cameron.

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1893 - Folio (454 x 375 mm). Original full vellum, titles to front cover gilt, green coated endpapers, edges untrimmed. Boards very lightly soiled, minor wear to very tips, foxing to prelims and endmatter; an excellent copy. Frontispiece designed by W. A. Smith, and 25 plates, all with captioned tissue-guards printed in red. First edition, limited issue, number 10 of 400 copies, this apparently a rare deluxe issue bound in full vellum and additionally signed by Henry Herschel Hay Cameron on the limitation page,"H. H. Hay Cameron". This work was collaboration between Henry (1852–1911), Julia's youngest son, and the novelist Anne Thackeray Ritchie (1837–1919). There are four photogravures of Alfred Tennyson, including the 1865 photograph he is said to have liked best, dubbed The Dirty Monk. Other subjects include Tennyson's wife and sons, Julia Margaret Cameron herself, Anne Thackeray Ritchie, Robert Browning and Charles Darwin, among other social and literary figures. Cameron (1815–1879), and Tennyson (1809–1892), had a close friendship, and "in 1860 her friendship with Tennyson had prompted her to move to Freshwater, on the Isle of Wight; she took the house next to his" (ODNB). Tennyson, despite being described as "a reluctant model", was persuaded to sit for her on many occasions after she took up photography in 1863, when her daughter, Julia, gave her a set of photographic equipment (ODNB). Cameron was later invited by Tennyson to illustrate his "Idylls of the King and other poems", published in 1874. "Cameron's photographs demonstrate a psychological intimacy and intensity that is compellingly modern" (Parr & Badger, vol. 1, p. 69). The majority traced at auction are found in the original gilt decorated cloth, no other signed copies have been traced, and just one other copy has been traced (appearing at auction in 1994) in a vellum binding. As few as only the first ten numbered copies were thus bound, and certainly not many more, since auction records show that the earliest numbered copy, number 18 (which appeared in 1974), was bound in the usual cloth.

There is a large sectional folding map of Bay County, Florida issued by Bay County Land & Abstract Company Panama City from April 15, 1921. The map shows various land marks such as post offices, small towns, ferry lines, highways, and more. Point Donalson can be seen on the map next to long point and in between Saint Andrews Bay and East bay. There are also two hand drawn maps of a couple lots in block 12. The small map shows how the lots would back up to St. Andrews bay. There are 18 subdivision plat maps from 1912 to the 1950s. Five plates feature a close up view of the houses while the rest of the plates illustrate the full view of Point Donalson. A small map version of Point Donalson is printed on the last page of the printed brochures. There are four stapled, professionally printed eight page brochures titled "Point Donalson The Beauty Spot on St. Andrew's Bay Parker, Florida" with the printed name of H.V. Roelof's Parker, Washington County, Florida on the next to last page. One section reads, "for years real estate men have been trying to buy this property. We intend to live here ourselves, and knowing the propensity of real estate men to sell to any and every one who has the price, we have not until now disposed of any of it. A few choice residence sites will be sold to desirable people who wish to make summer, winter, or all-the-year-round homes away from the cold winters and hot summers." The brochures include information about the type of people the Donalsons wish to sell their homes to and as said before feature a small map of the location. Many of the documents are business related and there are several letters regarding to the selling of lots from Thomas Sale to Mrs. Logan Bleckley (Anne D. Bleckley) and vice versa. One of which explains how the original copy of the Resolution for the property hadn't been found but a copy had, "Will wonders never cease? How does paper evaporate inside a court house? And isn't the Clerk who copied the missing Resolution in the minutes of the County Commissioners responsible for the fact that it was not duly recorded along with the (also necessary) proof of advertising?" The Resolution was found on November 22, 1958 only three weeks after it went missing. The Resolution for the property as well as proof of advertising in the newspaper is paper clipped to Mr. Sale's letter. The resolution states the family members who own the land and where, "Whereas, it has been made to appear that Logan Bleckley, Jr. Anne D. Bleckley, Henry W. Pearce, Lorna D. Pearce, William G. Donalson, James A. Donalson and Stella W. Donalson, as the owners of certain lands in Section 24, Township 4 South, Range 14 West known as Point Donalson." There is also a ledger book measuring 12" x 7.5", listing accounts of the property heirs including Anne Bleckley, from 1925 to 1956. Most of the land was divided as equally as possible, giving each child a section of Point Donalson. The houses were designed to look mostly the same and follow the same structures as all the others. A couple letters discuss the building limitations in Point Donalson. All lots had to be considered residential housing with a possible garage and separate housing for servants. The ground floor had to be within 1400 square feet with an overall housing value of $7,500.00 or more. Asbestos siding or concrete block was necessary and no temporary housing such as tents or trailers were permitted.

        The Chronicles of Barsetshire:] The Warden; Barchester Towers; Doctor Thorne; Framley Parsonage; The Small House at Allington; The Last Chronicle of Barset.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1878—1893 - 6 works in 8 volumes, octavo (187 × 123 mm). Recent red crushed half morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, red cloth sides, gilt titles to spines, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Illustrated bookplate to front pastedowns. An excellent, clean set. With wood-engraved frontispieces by F. A. Fraser. An attractively bound set of the collected Chronicles of Barsetshire. Trollope was famously never published in a complete uniform edition and Chapman and Hall's collected Chronicles of Barsetshire, which was originally published in 1878, is the nearest attempt at a collected edition, aside from the Chapman and Hall and Ward, Lock and Co.'s cheaply produced editions. This set is a reissue of the 1878 edition."The history of [Chapman & Hall's 1878 collected edition of the Chronicles of Basetshire] is not without interest. Trollope himself was very anxious that his Barsetshire novels should be brought together in a uniform series. Originally the venture was to comprise only six volumes, for he did not himself regard The Small House as one of the Barsetshire set; but he consented to its inclusion at the urgent request of Chapman & Hall" (Sadleir p. 245).

      Der ungarische Künstler Sándor Bortnyik (1893 - 1976) war einer der bekanntesten Vertreter der Künstlergruppe ?MA?. In seinen vom deutschen Expressionismus und französischen Kubismus geprägten Arbeiten unterstützte der Avantgarde-Künstler auch die Kommunistische Partei (Kommunisták Magyarországi Pártja). Nach der Niederschlagung der ungarischen Räterepublik im August 1919 emigrierte Bortnyik mit Kassák und anderen ?MA?-Künstlern nach Wien. Anfang der 20er Jahre stellte Bortnyik in der Berliner Galerie ?Der Sturm? aus und wohnte einige Jahre in Weimar, wo er enge Verbindungen zum Bauhaus hat. 1928 gründet der inzwischen nach Budapest zurückgekehrte Bortnyik die Schule für Werbegrafik ?Mühely?, auch ?Das kleine Bauhaus? genannt.

The archive is related to the selling and development of land in the Point Donalson subdivision in Florida. Ephemera has small tears and some spotting else near fine with near fine photographs measuring between 7" x 5" to 3" x 3" with modest foxing and edgewear.A substantial account of the Donalson family's heritage and involvement with the creation of Point Donalson in Parker, Florida. Several photographs, newspaper clippings, letters, and government documents illustrate the lives and struggles of creating Point Donalson during the 1950s. There is a small pack of 10 black and white snapshot photos taken in the 1950s at Point Donalson showing the early phases of development. Some of the photos are of Crescent Beach and various other parts of the property being constructed. The beach is a long curved plot of sand on a lake with trees and bushes all around it. Though there are a few picture of the area, there aren't any full scale pictures, only maps. There is a large sectional folding map of Bay County, Florida issued by Bay County Land & Abstract Company Panama City from April 15, 1921. The map shows various land marks such as post offices, small towns, ferry lines, highways, and more. Point Donalson can be seen on the map next to long point and in between Saint Andrews Bay and East bay. There are also two hand drawn maps of a couple lots in block 12.

        Tabès et paralysie générale

      Paris, Steinheil, 1893, in-8, 160-[4] pages et 10 planches, exemplaire broché, Édition en librairie, peu courante, de la thèse de Jean Nageotte (1866-1948). Elle fut très remarquée à l'époque, notamment par Babinski qui devait signer avec Nageotte, quelques années plus tard, un ouvrage de la plus haute importance ; Hémiasynergie, latéropulsion et myosis bulbaires avec hémianesthésie et hémiplégie croisées (1902), dans lequel les deux neurologues décrivent le syndrome de Babinski-Nageotte, conséquence d'une lésion bulbaire unilatérale d'origine syphilitique. Dans le présent ouvrage, Nageotte établit que l'origine du tabès ne se situe pas dans les neurones médullaires, comme on l'admettait à l'époque, mais dans une lésion des cordons postérieurs. L'auteur affinera cette notion par la suite en montrant que la lésion initiale se situe au niveau des "nerfs radiculaires", que d'autres auteurs ont pérennisé sous la dénomination de "nerf radiculaire de Nageotte" (racines dorsales). Cette découverte fut longtemps controversée avant de s'imposer définitivement. Bon exemplaire, non coupé, avec ses 10 planches finales de vues microscopiques du système nerveux. Dos consolidé.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Naulakha, Brattleboro, Vermont, 20. XII. 1893. - 8vo. 2 pp. To the American author William H. Rideing (1853-1918): "[.] I am in receipt of yours of the 18th instant suggesting a 2000-2500 w[ord] article for the Companion. Now that I have seen some of the mothers of the youths who read the paper I may perhaps be able to come nearer to its demands. It is very difficult for me to invent notions but I find in my notebooks the story of a young apprentice in the repairing shops of the E.I.R. [East Indian Railways] our Great Indian railroad. We will suppose he is 18 or 19 - sketch the life of the railway community and a railway town in India (Bengal) and make him mend and bring in, on one piston, a broken down loco. in flood time, as he is travelling to a volunteer rifle match. The tale would introduce the country-bred white of the Indian RR's - a parsee engine driver and so on - all the difference that there is between an American + an Indian line. I should prefer 3500 w[ords] to turn in but if you find that does not meet your approval kindly let me know and we will try something else. I used to know something of our Indian railway line. It’s community apart. Very many thanks for Sir E[dwin] Arnolds Jungle Life series. I am doing a set of tales on the same subject more or less for St Nicholas, giving the Jungle people’s views of mankind [.]". - Kipling's works of fiction include "The Jungle Book" (a collection of stories which includes "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi"), the "Just So Stories" (1902), "Kim" (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift". Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date.

The map shows the distribution of the archaeological sites of the area of Viatsk northeast of Kazan. The first volume is devoted in its entirety to Ural and Altai cultures. The rapid development of archaeology in Russia and some sensational finds had led to the establishement if the Imperial Archaeological Commission in St. Petersburg in 1859. Count Aleksei Uvarov re-organized the Imperial Archaeological Society in Moscow five years later, which he directed until his death in 1884. His widow Praskovia took over the directorship and continued in his footstepsfor for the next 30 years. We were able to locate copies at Cambridge, Harvard and Dumbarton Oaks only.
