        Whitehall

      London - Seeley and Co., 1895. London - Seeley and Co., 1895 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An historical and architectural study of the Palace of Whitehall, which was destroyed by fire in 1698. With many engraved illustrations throughout. The Palace of Whitehall (or Palace of White Hall) was the main residence of the English monarchs in London from 1530 until 1698 when all except Inigo Jones's 1622 Banqueting House was destroyed by fire. Before the fire it had grown to be the largest palace in Europe, with over 1,500 rooms, overtaking the Vatican and Versailles. The palace gives its name, Whitehall, to the road on which many of the current administrative buildings of the UK Government are situated, and hence metonymically to the central government itself. On 10 April 1691, a fire broke out in the much-renovated apartment of the Duchess of Portsmouth that damaged the older palace structures, though apparently not the state apartments. This actually gave a greater cohesiveness to the remaining complex. However a second fire on 4 January 1698 destroyed most of the remaining residential and government buildings; the diarist John Evelyn noted succinctly the next day, Whitehall burnt! nothing but walls and ruins left. Condition: In a green cloth binding with gilt lettering to the front board. Externally smart, with some minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and mainly clean, with just some foxing to the endpapers and the odd spot throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella The Catholic

      London - George Routledge and Sons, 1895. London - George Routledge and Sons, 1895 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A history of the reign of Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon, the Spanish monarchs who reigned from 1469 to 1516. The title of Catholic King and Queen was bestowed on them by the Pope Alexander VI in 1496, for defending Catholic dogmas within their realms. They married on October 19, 1469, in the city of Valladolid; Isabella was eighteen years old and Ferdinand a year younger. Their marriage united both crowns under the same family. Although many historians, like John Elliot argue that the unification of Spain can essentially be traced back to the marriage of Ferdinand and Isabella newer historical opinions recognize that under their rule Spain was still a composite monarchy. Castile and Aragon would remain largely separate entities for decades to come. The court of Ferdinand and Isabella was constantly on the move, in order to bolster local support for the crown from local feudal lords. With engraved frontispiece of Christopher Columbus. Condition: In a half-calf binding. Externally smart, with some light wear to the extremities and spine. Internally, firmly bound. Prize bookplate to front pastedown.

        Damaskus

      1895. Aquarell auf Papier, unten links bezeichnet und datiert: "Damaskus. 5. April 95.", unten rechts monogrammiert: "MR", 32,6 x 24,2 cm. Das 19. Jahrhundert hat in seiner teils paradoxen Vielfältigkeit nicht nur einen biedermeierlichen Nationalismus hervorgebracht, sondern auch eine unstillbare Sehnsucht nach dem Exotischen und Fremden, nach all dem, was scheinbar aus den Märchen und Geschichten heraus zu Fleisch und Stein geworden ist. Dieses Verlangen nach einem exotischen Garten Eden, den die Andersartigkeit des Orients von allem europäischem Sein so wirklich erscheinen ließ, wurde für viele Künstler zum Markstein ihres Schaffens. War die Ägyptomanie der napoleonischen Ära noch von einem wissenschaftlichen Interesse überfangen, konzentrierte sich der Orientalismus seit etwa 1850 auf ein imaginiertes Lebensgefühl, das gerade in seiner mysteriösen Fremdheit erhalten bleiben sollte, wenn auch in einer domestizierten Form als Fata Morgana des westlichen Blicks. Angefeuert von den süßlich-glatten Salonbildern Jean-Leon Geromes über die lediglich arabisch verkleideten Genrebilder westlicher Prägung eines John Frederick Lewis bis hin zu den lichtdurchfluteten und stärker den wirklichen Gegebenheiten angenäherten und dadurch auch raueren Bildern des Österreichers Leopold Carl Müller erstreckt sich das Orientbild des 19. Jahrhunderts. In dieser Tradition bewegt sich auch Max Rabes, der als Vielgereister besonders im Orient jene Atmosphäre fand, die sein Gemüt und seine Bilder belebte. Unzählige Reisen in diese Gegend haben ihn Land und Leuten angenähert und so hat er für sich auch nie das Verdikt des "Orientmalers" gelten lassen. Die lackierte Reinheit, mit der das Fremde dem Salonpublikum schmackhaft gemacht wurde, entsprach nicht seinem Bestreben, ein Gefühl für die spezifische Beschaffenheit von Land und Leuten zu entwickeln und zu transportieren. Und so finden sich zwar auch in seinem Werk Porträts und Genrebilder des Orients, doch sind diese nicht als Ansichtskarten für ein schaulustiges Publikum zu verstehen, sondern vielmehr als ehrliche Auseinandersetzungen, als ein Verstehen-Wollen des Anderen. Unser Aquarell bezeugt neben Rabes' Gespür für atmosphärische Stimmung sein verinnerlichtes Verständnis für die Architektur und die Kultur des Orients. Mit wenigen, schnellen Pinselstrichen vermag er Licht, Leben und Architektur in ein präzises Gefüge zu überführen, das nicht etwa idealisiert, sondern von der erlebten Umwelt zu berichten weiß. So werden die Personen im Vordergrund nicht zu stilisierten Exponaten einer exotischen Welt, sondern reihen sich als schemenhafte Ornamente in die architektonische Konstruktion ein. Sie beleben nicht, sondern sind integraler Teil ihrer Umgebung. Die Gebäude werden dabei in ihrer Eigenart summarisch und doch korrekt erfasst, ohne dass Rabes sich in einer überrealen Detailfülle verliert, wie man es von den Salonmalern des späten 19. Jahrhunderts gewohnt war. Max Rabes hat diese vom "Sonnenbrand erfüllte Straße"in Damaskus in ein außergewöhnliches Abbild eines ursprünglichen Orients verwandelt, in dem derjenige, der das Fremde sucht, selbst der Fremde ist.

Jean-Marie Raphael LeJeune out of the back room of a church on the Kamloops reserve between May 1891 and Dec. 1905. Intended primarily for the local Aboriginal audience, most of the content was written in Chinook jargon with some translation into English and French. At its peak, The Wawa had a circulation of about 2,000 copies and was read as far away as France.& An important 19th century British Columbia newsletter, the Kamloops Wawa. The Kamloops Wawa was a multi-lingual publication written in English, French and Chinook Jargon.& Chinook jargon, a trade language (or pidgin) was once spoken by an estimated 100,000 people along the west coast from Oregon to Alaska. With more than 100 Aboriginal languages spoken in the area, it was one of the most diverse linguistic regions in the world. Chinook jargon evolved as a way of bridging the communication gap created by this diversity.& Derived from various Aboriginal languages, and later English and French, this jargon was widely spoken by natives, traders, and settlers, but could not be easily translated to written form. As a means of bringing literacy to Aboriginal people, Catholic missionaries in the late 1800s developed a phonetic shorthand that could accurately represent the jargon.& Eventually, most of the native population learned to speak English, and Chinook jargon fell into disuse. The language may have disappeared altogether had the written legacy of the Catholic missionaries not remained. The Wawa, which is Chinook jargon for &#39;chat&#39;, is an important record of that legacy.

First and Second volume (complete). Manchester, On hundred copies privately printed for Viscount Julian Smithson M. A. and friends, 1884. [1895-1900 ?

Très belle impression sur beau papier vergé de type Hollande. Exemplaire en grande partie non coupé, non rogné, comme neuf, tel que paru. A noter seulement le bas des dos légèrement grignoté par un rongeur un tantinet érotomane mais pas criminel. Rien de grave donc. Couvertures de brochage imprimées en rouge et noir sur papier satiné en très bon état, à peine salies. Volumes solidement brochés. TRÈS RARE PREMIÈRE ÉDITION ANGLAISE IMPRIMÉE A 100 EXEMPLAIRES SEULEMENT. Cette édition suit en tous points, y compris dans le tirage limité à 100 exemplaires, l'édition donnée en français par Alcide Bonneau et Isidore Liseux en 1882 dans le Musée Secret du Bibliophile. De figuris Veneris (On the figures of Venus) is an anthology of ancient Greek and ancient Roman source texts on erotic topics, discussed objectively and classified and grouped by subject matter. It was first edited and published by the German classicist Friedrich Karl Forberg in 1824 in Latin and Greek as critical apparatus to his Antonii Panormitae Hermaphroditus, a reprint of Hermaphroditus. It was later published as a separate work and translated into various languages. It concludes with a list of 90 sexual positions. De figuris Veneris has been translated as into English as Manual of classical erotology, into French as Manuel d&#146;érotologie classique by Alcide Bonneau (one French edition was illustrated by Édouard-Henri Avril) and into Spanish as Manual de erótica clásica. It contains : Foreward Of Copulation Of Pederastia Of Irrumation Of Masturbation Of Cunnilingues Of Tribads, Tribad Of Intercourse with Animals Of Spintrian Postures, Spintrian Enumeration of the Erotic Postures. The work of Venus may be accomplished with or without the help of the mentula (virile member). If with the mentula, the friction of this organ, in which friction the whole pleasure consists, can be effected either in the vulva (female organ), in the anus (arse-hole), in the mouth, by the hand or in any cavity of the body. If without the mentula, the vulva may be worked either with the tongue, with the clitoris, or with any object resembling the virile organ (Manual of Classical Erotology, 23). Nous avons lu dans un catalogue ancien que ces deux volumes sortiraient de l'officine de Charles Carrington, alors à Bruxelles. Chose impossible en 1884 si l'on fait naître Charles Carrington en 1867 ! (il n'aurait eu que 17 ans ! - possible cependant si comme d'autres sources l'affirment, Carrington nait en 1857 ! Si tel était le cas, l'impression serait alors antidatée et serait plus probablement de la période 1907-1912 (Carrington est à Bruxelles). La traduction de l'ouvrage serait de Smithson. Nous pensons que la similitude entre l'édition Liseux de 1882 et cette édition anglaise datée 1884 est trop évidente pour en faire une édition des premières années du XXe siècle. Nous pensons donc que ces deux volumes ont bel et bien été imprimés en 1884 à très petit nombre, comme indiqué. Nous lisons ailleurs la date donnée de 1899 pour ces deux volumes. Autant dire que personne n'est d'accord sur l'histoire de cet ouvrage. BEL EXEMPLAIRE, BROCHÉ, TEL QUE PARU, D'UN LIVRE TRÈS RARE POUR NE PAS DIRE INTROUVABLE. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
