        Lecons de Violon.

      1895 1895 - Poster for Violin and music lessons. Paris: Chaix 1898. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1899. Plate no. 175. Indrammet på syrefrit karton i lys eg med anti-reflektivt glas med en UV beskyttelse på 70 %. * Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art.By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Europe in China. The History of HongKong from the Beginning to the Year 1882.

      London.: Luzac & Co.. 1895.. vi + [3] + 575pp + xipp, index, 19th century full morocco binding recased with backstrip laid down, modern endpapers, gilt dentelles. Presentation plate laid down front paste down, "Presented to Mr. George Thomas Crook by His Brother Journalists, on the Eve of his Departure form the Colony, April 6th, 1898". From the library of Arthur Hacker. The seminal history of Hong Kong covering the period 1841 - 1882. Although the author, E.J. Eitel was a controversial figure, he, for example left his position as Governor Pope-Hennessy's private secretary under a cloud, in this history he makes every effort to represent Hong Kong's history as fairly as he could, including the achievements of Pope-Hennessy's period as Governor. Eitel was judged harshly by many of his peers, no doubt his German background being a good part of the reason for this, together with his reported lack of personal warmth, however there is no denying he was a good scholar. In more recent years this history has criticised for its colonial viewpoint however it is important to remember that it was written when views of the world and in particular the part colonialism played where very different to today. This copy has a particularly interesting provenance as it was given as a gift to George Thomas Crook (1873 - ?) on his departure from Hong Kong in 1898. Crook was an English journalist who worked at the Daily Press in Hong Kong from January 1895 until his departure. Prior to his arrival in Hong Kong he had worked at the Birmingham Daily Mail (1886-94)and on return to England worked at the Daily Mirror and Daily Express. An attractive presentation plate is laid down on the upper pastedown signed by 12 "brother" journalists in April 1898. These journalists whose signatures appear hailed from a variety of newspapers include: T. Cowen [Thomas Clark Cowen], who worked in the Far East from 1893. He was on the staff of the Hong Kong Telegraph, reported on the Sino-Japanese and Spanish-American Wars and joined the Japan Times in 1906. G.C. Cox (Hong Kong Daily Press, staff 1893 - 1898); Jabez Potts on the staff of the Daily Press (Hong Kong) between 1898 - 1904?; Chesney Duncan, who had a distinguished career in East Asia working as a journalist on many of the best newspapers of the day, including the Hong Kong Telegraph, Japan Gazette, Shanghai Mercury, China Mail, Daily Mail (for whom he was special correspondent during the Boxer Rebellion), Times of Malaya and China Republican. A social activist he was took a leading role in the Sunday Labour Ordinance movement to abolish unnecessary labour on Sunday. The resulting legislation was used as a model when it was passed in other British Crown Colonies. He was also the awarded gold medal for his services during plague epidemic in Hong Kong, 1894. Colin McDonald Smart, China Mail (Hong Kong), staff at 1898. Thomas H. Reid joined the staff of the China Mail (Hong Kong) in 1892, he also served as The Times Hong Kong Correspondent for 3 years in the 1890s, reported on the Spanish American War leaving East Asia in the first years of the 20th century. An attractive and particularly interesting copy of the standard history of 19th century Hong Kong. .

        [Cendrillon]. Les Mandores. Autograph musical manuscript excerpt of a ballet divertissement from act 2 of the composer's opera Cendrillon. Piano reduction. With an autograph note signed in Massenet's hand on a separate leaf: "Quelques mesures manuscriptes du 2e acte de "Cendrillon" (1898) Paris 3 Nov. 1910."

      "Les Mandores" is part of an extended ballet divertissement in the second act of Massenet's opera Cendrillon. It is not included in Massenet's original manuscript piano-vocal score, dated 1895 (Bibliothèque nationale de France, département Bibliothèque-musée de l'opéra, RES-563); there, the "2-ème entrée" of the divertissement ("Le Fiancés") is immediately followed by "Le Rigodon du Roy," counted as "3-ème entrée." In the first edition "Les Mandores" appears as the "3-ème entrée" (pp. 172-75) and another new movement, "La Florentine," as the "4-ème entrée" (pp. 176-79); the "Rigodon du Roy" is renumbered as the "5-ème entrée" (starting at p. 180 ). The autograph manuscript at the Bibliothèque nationale is also notated on one side of the leaf only, is on the same paper as the present manuscript, and carries engraver's marks in the same hand. System breaks and page breaks match those of the first edition; pagination, however, does not. It appears that Heugel prepared, or at least planned, an earlier edition based solely on the manuscript in the Bibliothèque nationale, but as the premiere was delayed by several years, the publisher apparently put the project on hold. In the interim, Massenet added the new entrée (and made other changes as well), necessitating changes to the pagination of the printed score.. Folio (350 x 270 mm). Modern maroon morocco with marbled boards. 4 pp., notated in ink on 20-stave music paper with blindstamp of H. Lard-Esnault Ed. Bellamy sr, Paris on one side of the leaf only. A fair copy of a piano reduction of "Les Mandores" in A major, 3/4 time. Tempo: "Assez Modéré (sans lenteur)"; metronome mark: "120 = [quarter note]." Autograph note to upper left corner of p. 1: "3 ème entrée." Several erasures. Cautionary key and time signature for continuation after final double bar (D minor, 12/8 time). System breaks and pagination marked up in pencil in an unknown hand, both matching pp. 172-75 of the first edition of the piano-vocal score published in Paris by Heugel in 1899. The markup, as well as the cautionary key and time signatures at the end, allow for the conclusion that the present copy is part of the engraver's copy of the opera. All leaves guarded and with early horizontal crease; slightly browned; small stain to final blank page. In very good condition overall.

Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt, German (1895 - 1957)Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt is one of the most famous and revered 20th century dog artists. He was born in 1895 in Leipzig , Germany and died in Munich in 1977. He studied at the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts, where he became a student under the artists Theodor Hagen and Lionel Feininger. He rejected a professorship in Weimar and went to Munich in 1918, where he decided to work entirely on animal engravings.In 1926 he held his last exhibition in the "New Secession." He was a staunch individualist who rejected the offer of a professorship in Weimar because he valued his independence too much. The only thing he wanted was to continue depicting his beloved dogs, cats and other animals.His work has been published by the Hanfstaengl Publishing Company in Munich since 1917. His engravings are still published today at the printing shop in Munich - formally Franz Hanfstaengl, Munich . All etchings are still printed on 300lb hand made acid-free paper, printed by hand from the original copper plates, using the same directions as given by the artist himself.

        Majors and Minors: Poems by Paul Lawrence Dunbar

      Toledo, Ohio: Hadley & Hadley, Printers & Binders, (1895). First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo, 148 pages, frontis portrait w/ tissue guard. Publisher's original gray cloth lettered in gilt on the upper cover. Blanck/ Bibliography of American Literature 4917. Moderately rubbed & soiled, corners bumped, text lightly toned mostly in the margins. African American poet, novelist, playwright, & essayist Paul Laurence Dunbar's second book. Presents poignant poetry with a variety of themes and in several styles. The more ambitious poems, those written in standard English, are under the heading "Majors," and the more superficial works, in African American dialect, as "Minors."Dunbar was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1872 to parents who had been slaves in Kentucky. His first poetry was published at age 16 and he died in 1906, just 33 years old. In the preface to his "Book of American Poetry," friend & fellow author James Weldon Johnson, who was also executive secretary of the NAACP, writes:"Paul Laurence Dunbar stands out as the first poet from the Negro race in the United States to show a combined mastery over poetic material and poetic technique, to reveal innate literary distinction in what he wrote, and to maintain a high level of performance. He was the first to rise to a height from which he could take a perspective view of his own race. He was the first to see objectively its humor, its superstitions, its short-comings; the first to feel sympathetically its heart-wounds, its yearnings, its aspirations, and to voice them all in a purely literary form."

The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche.

        3 Prints of Terrier dogs

      Signed lower in pencil in each print. 16 x 13-1/4 inches. Fine. Signed lower in pencil in each print. 16 x 13-1/4 inches. Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt, German (1895 - 1957) Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt is one of the most famous and revered 20th century dog artists. He was born in 1895 in Leipzig , Germany and died in Munich in 1977. He studied at the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts, where he became a student under the artists Theodor Hagen and Lionel Feininger. He rejected a professorship in Weimar and went to Munich in 1918, where he decided to work entirely on animal engravings. In 1926 he held his last exhibition in the "New Secession." He was a staunch individualist who rejected the offer of a professorship in Weimar because he valued his independence too much. The only thing he wanted was to continue depicting his beloved dogs, cats and other animals. His work has been published by the Hanfstaengl Publishing Company in Munich since 1917. His engravings are still published today at the printing shop in Munich - formally Franz Hanfstaengl, Munich . All etchings are still printed on 300lb hand made acid-free paper, printed by hand from the original copper plates, using the same directions as given by the artist himself.

        Prince Zaleski

      Boston, Roberts Brothers. 1895, 1895. First US Edition of the author's first book. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's blue grey cloth with some slight toning to the spine panel. Titled in gilt to spine and in black to front board with publisher's 'key' monogram in black to rear board. Internally bright and clean with Beardsley designed title page and front board decorations. A lovely copy of a scarce book. 'Matthew Phipps Shiel (his surname was originally spelled Shiell) (21 July 1865 ? 17 February 1947), was a prolific British (or perhaps more accurately West Indian) writer of fantastic fiction. He is remembered mostly for supernatural and scientific romances. His work was published as novels, short stories and as serials. A recently discovered scandal (involving, allegedly, his twelve year old stepdaughter; a resounding victory for Victorian morality) perhaps explains why his literary output suddenly dwindled in 1914.'

L'ouvrage est écrit dans la droite ligne de l'enseignement donné à la Salpêtrière par Charcot dont l'auteur fut l'élève, et dont il défendra la thèse par opposition à ses deux autres élèves, Freud et Babinski. En effet, Charcot définit l'Hystérie sous l'aspect de quatre stades : la période épileptoïde, la période du clownisme, la période des attitudes passionnelles et la période terminale avec souvent des hallucinations, stade qu'on observait sous hypnose. Gilles de la Tourette essaie donc de "reconnaître à l'hystérie des lois d'évolution [et] et un déterminisme particulier" et d'en faire "une maladie vraie, stable dans son incohérence qui est plus apparente que réelle". Étude bilan de l'enseignement dispensé à la Pitié. Bien complet du portrait frontispice à l'eau forte signé Desmoulin. De nombreuses figures en noir dans le texte, dessinées par Paul Richer, illustrent le propo de la thèse. Bel exemplaire. Dos passés, très légers frottements aux coiffes et aux coins. Cachet ex-libris du Dr Carrier de Lyon. (Following Charcot, p. 139-140) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journal des Goncourt

      - Paris- Bibliotheque Charpentier 1895 - A very attractive nine volume set of this work bound by Louis Conard. Complete in nine volumes. The comprehensive journals of the Goncourt brothers, Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, both French naturalism writers and collaborative sibling authors. The Goncourt brothers formed a partnership that is often viewed as unique in literary history. The brothers wrote their books together and did not spend time apart during their adult lives. They were only parted by the death of Jules in 1870. They are known for their literary work and for their diaries, which offer an intimate view into the French literary society of the later 19th century. The Goncourt brothers' career as writers began with an account of a sketching holiday together. They published books on aspects of 19th century French art and society, dismissing the vulgarity of the Second Empire in favour of a more refined age. They also published six novels of which one was based on the true case of their own maidservant, Rose Malinger, whose lived a double life. On his death, Edmond de Goncourt bequeathed his entire state for the foundation and maintenance of the Academie Goncourt which still awards one of the most important literary prizes in French Literature. Condition: Uniformly bound in half crushed morocco bindings by Louis Conard and original paper wraps bound in. Externally, very smart with some light rubbing and bumping. Internally, firmly bound. Pages untrimmed, age toned due to paper used but generally clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photograph Album of 19th Century Czech Chemist in Mexico]: Nas domov v Mexiku. 1895. ["Our Home in Mexico"]

      - Oblong octavo. Measuring 10.5" x 7.5". Period morocco album titled in gilt on the front board: "Nas domov v Mexiku. 1895. [Our Home in Mexico]". Album contains 52 gelatin silver photographs, each image 7.5" x 4.5", and each captioned in Czech. A trifle rubbed at the extremities, the album is near fine, the images are fine.An excellent photographic album kept by a Czech chemist who specialized in the production of dynamite (his business card is laid in to the album describing himelf as "Chimiste de la Dynamite Nobel") who had emigrated to Mexico from Prague. From the photographic evidence in the album it appears that Jelinek settled somewhere in central Mexico and established a chemical laboratory specializing in explosives, presumably in support of the mining trades. The domestic photographs are quite interesting and illustrate the European furnishings of a well-to-do established household. They also include some striking portrait images of the couple transformed from stodgy European fashions to classic Mexican finery complete with silk rebozo for the lady and a sombrero for the gentleman. Also included are rooftop panoramas of the unmistakably Mexican town (although it is unidentified). Other images include local domestic help, and one image of a map of Mexico on the wall.There is a section of the album devoted to showing what the makeshift explosives laboratory looked like (it occupied the upper floors of a building, probably the building within which they were domiciled). An additional loose, boudouir-size cabinet photograph by R. Barajas depicts Jelinek's grave, indicating that he died in Mexico on 1 October 1897. The images are of excellent quality, and are useful in illustrating the lives of the expatriate Czech couple living in Mexico in the late 19th Century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
