        Kiepert's grosser Hand-Atlas Statistischer Text von Dr. Paul Lippert und M. Busemann. Dritte Auflage.

      Berlin: Geographische Verlagshandlung Dietrich Reimer, [c. 1895]. - Folio, (20 1/8 x 13 1/8 inches). 45 double-page chromolithographed maps. Handsome binding of modern half green morocco, original publisher's green cloth boards, gilt. Provenance: With the bookplate of Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), his sale, Sotheby's, October 18, 2005. Third edition, first published in 1893. Includes 45 beautifully chromolithographed double-page maps, showing the current political boundaries throughout the world. This atlas features several interesting maps of the Americas and Australia. One map of the United States delineates the various states and territories with colored outlines, but incorrectly identifies Alaska as a state rather than a territory. A map of the "Continent of Australia and New Zealand" identifies the various regions as "Englische Colonien," "Französische," "Niederländische," "Portugiesische," and "Deutsche." Another shows "Eastern North America" with insets of the "Northeastern States" (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland) and Niagara. Kiepert is widely recognized as one of the more important scholarly cartographers of the second half of the nineteenth century. He was particularly interested in the historical geography of the classical world as well as the Ottoman Empire, "where Kiepert travelled numerous times, gathering enough data to produce several major maps of the Ottoman world between the 1840s and 1890s. Kiepert was also responsible for some of the first detailed ethnic maps of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Balkan Peninsula. In the course of many years, he compiled maps of much of the rest of the world as well, in addition to cartographic materials for schools "Kiepert's maps are almost invariably clear and easy to read, and they are as accurate as the scholarship of the day permitted. His maps of the historical geography of the classical world have inevitably come to seem a bit old-fashioned in light of later research, but his maps of the Ottoman Empire and surrounding countries remain extraordinarily valuable records of conditions in the period when they were compiled" (University of Chicago Map Collection online).

        Tänzerin mit erhobenem, nach rechts gespreiztem Bein und nach rechts gewandtem Kopf.

      . Bleistift und Aquarell, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten monogrammiert "JM". 17,7:12,8 cm. Verso: Figurenskizze. Bleistift. Mit Lichtrand rundum.. Jeanne Mammen zählt sicher zu den schillerndsten Künstlerpersönlichkeiten unserer Zeit. Als Tochter eines wohlhabenden Kaufmannes wuchs sie frei von finanziellen Sorgen ab etwa 1895 in Paris auf. Wohl gefördert von ihrem Elternhaus begann sie dort das Studium der Malerei 1906 an der Academie Julien. Zur Weiterbildung ging sie 1908 nach Brüssel an die Academie Royale des Beaux-Arts und 1909 an die Scuola Libera Villa Medici in Rom. 1911 kehrte sie schließlich nach Paris zurück und veranstaltete schon im darauffolgenden Jahr eine erste Ausstellung ihrer Werke in ihrem Atelier. Darüber hinaus nahm sie an den Ausstellung der "Independants" in Paris teil. Bei Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges mußte sie mit der durch Beschlagnahmung aller Besitztümer durch die Franzosen mittellos gewordenen Familie das Land verlassen, kam erst nach Holland, 1916 nach Berlin. Hier suchte sie mit steigendem Erfolg durch Illustrationen, Modezeichnungen oder etwa Kinoplakate für die Ufa ihren Lebensunterhalt zu bestreiten. Schließlich wurde sie Mitarbeiterin der Zeitschrift "Simplicissimus" und anderer satirischer Blätter wie die "Lustigen Blätter", "Uhu" und "Ulk". Diese gesellschaftskritischen und satirischen Zeichnungen und Aquarelle, Milieustudien, Szenen aus Bars und von Kleinkunstbühnen, Bordellen und der Straße brachten ihr in der zweiten Hälfte der 20er Jahre wachsendes Ansehen und ein ausreichendes Einkommen. Schon zu Beginn ihres Schaffens ist die Fokussierung auf Frauendarstellungen festzustellen, ebenso wie die Beziehungen zwischen Mann und Frau, aber auch die zwischen Frau und Frau. Eine Ausstellung im November/Oktober 1930 in der Galerie Gurlitt folgte. Ein Jahr zuvor hatten ihr sicher ausreichende Verkäufe eine Reise in die Sowjetunion ermöglicht. 1933 wurde diese vielversprechende Entwicklung durch die Nationalsozialisten abrupt unterbrochen. Die Folge war die totale Abkehr von der vorherigen Malweise, von einer an die Figur gebundenen, zarten, gestisch freien und Tendenzen der Neuen Sachlichkeit verarbeitenden zur von Picasso beeinflußten kubo-expressiven Kunstauffassung - das war ihre Art des Widerstands gegen die Nationalsozialisten und deren offizielle Kunstpolitik. Zugleich begann sie als Plastikerin zu arbeiten. Die Zeit nach 1933 brachte bald den Verlust ihrer Verdienstmöglichkeiten durch Verbot oder "Gleichschaltung" der Zeitschriften; für die "angepaßten" hätte sie ohnehin nicht arbeiten wollen. So suchte sie sich etwa mit Bücherverkauf - umherziehend mit einem Karren - über Wasser zu halten. Nach dem Krieg entstanden aus Mangel an Farben Materialbilder aus Draht und Kordel. Ab 1949 entwarf sie für das existentialistische Kabarett "Die Badewanne" Kostüme und Bühnenbilder. Erste Ausstellungsbeteiligungen fanden schon 1945 statt. Reisen, die sie sich endlich leisten konnte folgten. Künstlerisch ist bald die allmähliche Annäherung an die Abstraktion zu beobachten.

        Red, Blue and Yellow Parrot Set Against Foliage.

      1895 - Oil on board. Signed and dated lower left. 28.5 x 38.5 cm approx. Framed. A beautiful oil painting by the renowned German artist Joseph Wolf (1820-99). Joseph Wolf was the finest wildlife illustrator and painter of the Victorian era. His work transformed the portrayal of animals in nature and inspired a new generation of artists. From 1848 Wolf was working for the British Museum and became the choice of illustrator for numerous explorers and collectors. The majority of his work hung in stately homes and royal palaces around Britain, yet remained almost unknown to the general public as he avoided selling through galleries. '[Wolf was] without exception, the best all-round animal artist who ever lived' (Sir Edwin Landseer, eminent Victorian animal painter). Whether creating a charcoal sketch or a dramatic oil painting, he had a unique talent for capturing the very essence of an animal. Unlike his contemporaries, Wolf painted wild creatures in their natural setting. By revealing their moods and behaviours, he allowed us to glimpse the reality of their everyday lives. His work paved the way for the wildlife art and illustration of today. (NHM Online). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Japanese Children

      Tokyo.: [Tokyo Toyodo].. No date. Ca. 1895.. 10 double-page color lithographs, plus 8 (unpaginated) pages of text at the rear. Bound accordion style with paper-covered boards and color pictorial cover label. Boards are detached with paper loss at the corners, small area of light dampstaining at the lower left corner. Interior in very good condition. The publisher's label has been removed from the rear paste-down. The text relating to the last image in the book states that "when the war between Japan and China was at its height, playing at soldiers was all the rage with boys." This suggests a date of publication shortly after 1895, following the first Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895 and preceding the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. There were apparently different editions of this work, with different covers and variant images. The first image in this edition is of two children, one reading, one writing. The text states that "This picture takes us back to the days when education in Japan was, for the mass of the people, a matter of private effort, the present extensive system of government schools, subordinate to an Education Department, dating only from 1871." The other images are: girls playing battledore and shuttlecock; boys flying kites; the Doll's Festival; children playing kotoro kotoro in Ueno Park; boys on bamboo stilts; boys in a procession; children playing in a stream; boys wrestling (sumo). A series of quite lovely woodblock prints. .

        A WOMAN OF THE COMMUNE

      1895 - A Tale of Two Sieges of Paris. London: F. V. White & Co., 1895. 16 pp undated ads (paginated as the end of the book). Original rose-mottled cloth. First Edition. This is one of Henty's historical tales for adults, rather than for boys, which is why it is not published by his usual publisher Blackie.~This is a very good-plus copy: the spine is a little faded and the gilt lettering does not stand out well against such light-colored cloth, and there is a small mark near the bottom of the front cover; that said, there is very little actual wear, and the brittle original patterned endpapers have only minor cracking. These Henty tales for adults are much scarcer than his tales for boys. Newbolt 65.1. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
