        "Tavolette di Biccherna" By Icilio Federico Joni - Republic of Siena & Revolution and Freedom

      Siena, Tuscany, circa 1895. An original exquisite and pictorially symbolic Biccherna styled "tavolette" (wood book cover), coloured with tempera and mineral paint, hand crafted by famous Italian Sienese painter Icilio Federico Joni, who is especially remembered for his masterful reproductions of the medieval Biccherna covers. Slightly re-purposed for the early nineteenth century, the boards are bound portfolio style with a leather spine for paper manuscripts as opposed to vellum, and further feature integral document pocket to each board, and an elegant floral patterned mint green satin lining. Also with a separate satin covered folder loosely placed within, bearing a metallic monogram 'MRS' fixed to upper corner, and containing four uninscribed double leafs. Volume measures 30,5 x 22 x 2,5 cm. The Archives of the State of Siena holds a collection of original wood covers from the thirteenth to seventeenth centuries, currently displayed in the Palazzo Piccolomini, Museo delle Tavolette di Biccherna [Museum of Biccherna Tablets]. Having entered some of the most important book collections worldwide, including those of Borghese, Hoe and Wilmerding, Joni's nineteenth century tavolettes are in their own right exemplary works of high art, and are classified as some of the most valuable book covers today. In the late nineteenth century, Icilio Federico Joni (1866-1946) so skillfully reproduced Siena's original 'Tavolette della biccherna' that one could not easily differentiate between his work and earlier original. To perfect his craft, Joni studied written accounts of the medieval covers before meticulously creating his own. A highly celebrated self-professed forger, in 1932 he published an autobiography to describe his work, titled, "Le memorie di un pittore di quadri antichi" [Memoirs of a Painter of Antique Pictures]. In 1936 an English edition appeared, titled "The Affairs of a Painter." Joni essentially created an exclusive revival of the Tavolette di Biccherna, and produced an exceptionally symbolic motif with this example. Rendering a theme of prosperity, political grandeur, nobility and the artistry of the Middle Ages, he captured the essence of his city's ancestral legacy, while also memorializing the pivotal revolution of 1355. On the front board is a painting of "Pax", the Roman goddess of peace, sitting on her throne and holding an olive branch. One of three shields underneath the scene, albeit chipped, appears to read "LIBERTAS" (Freedom), which is reminiscent of the deposition of the Noveschi mercantile-banking oligarchy, and the foundation of a democratic government and civilian council, and is consistent with the theme depicted on the rear board. [Pax is Latin for Peace. In Roman mythology Pax was the goddess of peace, equivalent of the Greek goddess Eirene. Pax was first worshipped during the rule of Augustus. She had a magnificent temple (sanctuary) on the Campus Martius which was built by the emperor Vespasian and called the Ara Pacis, and another temple on the Forum Pacis. Pax was depicted in art with olive branches, a cornucopia and a scepter. A festival in her honor was held on January 3rd. The daughter of Jupiter and Justice, Peace was often associated with spring.] The manuscript text to the rear cover is in the medieval Siena dialect and commemorates the insurrection of 1355 which overthrew the Government of the Nine. Drawing from thirteenth and fourteenth century covers, this one reads: "Justa[?], e L'Entrata, e L'Escita, de la General, Gabella del Magnifico Comuno di Signa AD 1355" (Orders[?] & Income & Expenses of the General Gabella of the Magnificent City of Siena, 1355 AD). Also interesting to note, the text mentions the Gabella. Whilst commonly known that the Biccherna made painted wood covers in which to preserve the city's official ledgers, the artist may have been drawing attention to the lesser known fact that the custom was also practiced by the other financial judiciary of Siena - the Executors of the Gabella. [Ministeri del Tesoro e della Finanza Biccherna e Gabella: Ministries of the Treasury and Finance Biccherna and Gabella: The Gabella was responsible for collecting and managing gabelles, a form of taxation. The Biccherna was responsible for the administration of public revenues.] In keeping with custom, five coats of arms are depicted, three of which are illustrated with dragons, possibly representative of specific nobles from the district "Contrada del Drago" [Dragon] who served a term in the ministry of finance. Traditionally, the painted wood covers made in the Middle Ages for the financial accounts of the two Sinese magistracies Biccherna and Gabella, were inscribed in manuscript to date and denote its contents. Every six months a term ended, each of the Provveditori and Esecutori being replaced, and new registers begun. It was at this time that the boards of the retiring official would be painted, often bearing his family's arms and those of his colleagues, some allegory, or a notable event from his term, political or otherwise, depending on the era. These traditions are beautifully manifested in Joni's work. The Republic of Siena was a state originating from the city of Siena in Tuscany, in central Italy. It existed for over four hundred years, from the late 11th century until the year 1555. In 1286 the Nova government was established to rule Siena. The Nova was backed by the Noveschi, a political party formed by the noble families that sat on the council. Eventually, the Noveschi Party grew to include not only include members of the Nova council, but many prominent noble families of the city. Under the guide of the Nova and the Noveschi, Siena grew in both economic and militaristic dominance, enjoying a relatively trouble-free period of wealth and urban development. It also saw a surge in the arts during the rule of the "Government of the Nine" (1287-1355). Siena was one of the earliest and most important banking centers of Europe and Italy. While every city had an office for recording revenue and expenses, Siena was unique in that its officials gave special attention not only to the documents, but also to the books in which they were kept, in particular the covers. Beginning in 1257, wood covers were made to protect vellum manuscripts, the earliest being illustrated with scenes of important financial overseers (provvedditori) or men who were privy to the secrets of the clergy (cameralingo), the coats of arms of these men, and sometimes depicting secrets known only to select officials. Allegorical, religious, and mythological scenes soon became popular, and by the mid-fifteenth century, covers were reflecting current events such as a monarch's coronation, natural disasters, grand celebrations. Although leather was used even earlier in bookbinding and eventually was the material of choice, wood was chosen for its weight, most often for the keeping of vellum manuscripts, in order to prevent the parchment from buckling. They were most often fastened with clasps and adorned with ivory or metal work. The tavolette (wood covers) of the Biccherna and Gabella were painted by a prominent artist. Alas, the Black Death Plague of 1348 decimated three fifths of the population. Some ill-fated financial enterprises and political turmoil also made room for a revolution. Subsequently, in 1355, with the arrival of Charles IV of Luxembourg in the city, the population rose and suppressed the government of the Nova council and expelled any family associated with the Noveschi Party. They established the Governo dei Dodici (Government of Twelve) being a government of twelve representatives of the people, assisted by a council of twelve nobles with a popular majority. This was to be short-lived, however, being replaced by the Quindici (Fifteen) reformers in 1385, the Dieci (Ten, 1386-1387), Undici (Eleven, 1388-1398) and Twelve Priors (1398-1399) who, in the end, relinquished the city's seigniory to Gian Galeazzo Visconti of Milan in order to defend it from the Florentine expansionism.

        Autograph letter signed. Paris, 18. XI. 1895.

      1895. 4to (210 x 133 mm). 2 pp. In French, to an unidentified friend: "[...] It seems that my wife missed you when she passed through Aix. We should have written you; but this voyage wasn t decided on until right at the last moment; and my wife thought she would always find you. What does she write me? That you complain about me because I am not answering your letters? If that were so I would have to be excused, because I am truly a poor man, burdened down with work and whose head is getting impassive. But truly, I am an innocent criminal, for I don't recall having received a single letter from you that I didn't answer. Let's pass the...sponge, shall we? My wife, who is impassioned of Rome, had a crazy desire to return there. [As for] me, I stayed [here] at my work. My Rome is tough going for me; and besides that, nothing exists which can totally absorb me. It will start appearing in The Journal toward December 20th; but you won't have the volume [the work in book form] until the first days of May. I have my pardon, don't I? And I send you the most affectionate of presses of the hand". - Won over to social humanitarianism toward the latter part of his life, Zola wrote the cycle, "Les Trois Villes", which no longer reflected a naturalistic perspective. When Zola wrote this letter, he had already published "Lourdes", the first novel in the trilogy and was still working on its sequel, "Rome", which would later be followed by "Paris". He had, the year before, visited the Italian capital to research for the novel, and had returned to Paris with voluminous notes about what he saw and heard. Madame Zola, who had accompanied him on this excursion to Italy, took more pleasure in the trip than he did. She found it easier here than in France to bask in his reflected glory, and she could imagine that Roman society was ignorant of the double life he was leading, whereas she was sure that all her friends in Paris knew. After this first visit she returned regularly on her own for several years running; it was an arrangement that allowed the estranged couple a semi-separation acceptable according to the conventions of the time.

        Autograph musical quotation signed ("N R-Korsakov") and inscribed. No place, 11. VIII. 1895.

      1895. 1 page, oblong 8vo, framed and glazed with a portrait of the composer (overall size: c.430:325 mm). Fine autograph musical quotation of the "Polacca" from act 3 of the opera "Christmas Eve", comprising the opening four bars notated in piano score in dark brown ink on four staves, inscribed ("Allegro non troppo alla polacca ... Polski from 'The Night before Christmas'") to the young composer and critic Evgeny Ottovich Gunst. - Rimsky-Korsakov's "Christmas Eve" was premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg on 10 November 1895. The plot centres on Vakula the Smith, who can only marry his beloved Oksana, she says, if he brings her the slippers of the tsaritsa (ie Catherine the Great). In Tableau 7 (Act 3), Vakula arrives at Catherine's court and finds a group of cossacks singing her praises in this "Polacca". Rimsky included this movement in his Orchestral Suite derived from the opera, as number 3. The eighteen-year-old dedicatee, Evgeny Gunst (1877-1950), later wrote a book about Rimsky-Korsakov and Wagner; his own musical legacy as a composer was only discovered in 2009. - Some browning, probably from the mount.

First published in French in 1839 and 1840, the collection includes essays on the Borgias, Martin Guerre, Mary Stuart, and Beatrice Cenci, as well as modern criminals such as the poisoner Antoine Derues and the assassin Karl Ludwig Sand. Most notable is the historical account of the Man in the Iron Mask, a real prisoner of the Sun King whose plight would inspire the final chapter of Dumas's d'Artagnan romances: "The imagination is fired at the thought of that enforced dumbness, of that lifetime of reflections which the features did not betray, of that isolation for forty years confined within double walls of stone and iron." A fine deluxe set, splendidly bound. Eight octavo volumes, contemporary full plum crushed morocco gilt, boards ruled in gilt, raised bands, spine compartments elaborately tooled in gilt with a fleur-de-lis motif, top edges gilt, other edges uncut.

        Manifeste du Parti Communiste. Paris, (Em. Pivoteau for) Ère Nouvelle, [1895].

      1895. (2), 36 pp. Original printed wrappers. Stored in red morocco-entry papered slipcase with red half morocco chemise, gilt lettering to spine, custom-made for André Bréton. Extremely rare first separate French edition of this seminal historical document. Published by "L'Ère Nouvelle", the first French journal devoted to Marxist philosophy and analysis, this is a revision (by Engels) of the translation, by Marx's daughter Laura Lafargue, which had first appeared in "Le Socialiste" (29 August through 7 November, 1885). It constitutes the monumental first independent publication in French of Marx's and Engels's groundbreaking work of communist propaganda, "undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all Socialist literature, the common platform acknowledged by millions of working men from Siberia to California" (Preface to the 1888 edition). The present copy has an outstanding provenance: it is from the personal library of André Breton, the founder of surrealism, who from this present work drew much inspiration for his own Manifesto - the "Manifeste du Surréalisme" (1924), his magnum opus with which he founded the movement that came to dominate art, literature, and politics of the following decades. This first publication in book form of the "Manifesto" was immensely influential in spreading Communist thought throughout France and plays a dominant role in the history of French Marxist thought. - Spine repaired; some slight edge and corner defects as well as chipping to first and last few leaves (restored in places).

        The New Man: Twenty-Nine Years a Slave Twenty-Nine Years a Free Man

      York, Pennsylvania: P. Anstadt & Sons, 1895. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo. Complete with all 176 pages and frontispiece. See Work p. 311. Sound original binding with intact hinges. Clean pages. Lightly toned endpapers. Owner's info inside front cover. Minor wear to cover. Exceptionally well-written escaped slave autobiography. "Henry Clay Bruce, brother of the first black U.S. Senator Blanche K. Bruce, a Republican, was born into slavery in Virginia to parents owned by Lemuel Bruce. He spent the first years of his life in Virginia before he and his family were sold to Jack Perkinson in 1844, and were taken to Chariton County, Missouri. There Mr. Bruce was rented out as a laborer and also learned to read. Before and after his new master moved him back to Virginia in 1847, he worked at a variety of positions as a rented slave laborer, including tobacconist, rail splitter, and eventually farm hand supervisor. In 1864, Henry Bruce encountered some trouble due to his literacy. The master of Henry's fiancée opposed the couple's marriage because he was concerned that Henry's ability to read and write might spoil his slaves. Henry and his wife risked a great deal when they successfully escaped their masters and fled to Kansas that year. Once in Kansas, Bruce found work as a bricklayer, and several years later the couple bought a house. Mr. Bruce would remain in Kansas for many years, owning several businesses, running unsuccessfully for public office, and serving a term as an elected doorkeeper for the state senate. In 1881, Henry's brother Blanche secured him a job at the post office and he and his family moved to Washington, D.C., where he would spend the remainder of his life." from Scarce, as of 2016, there are two examples (one recased) in the trade, no auction records at ABPC or Rare Book Hub, and only microform editions held by instituions per OCLC.

      Marks Skt. Peterburg 1895 - Large 4to (41.6 x 32 cm), XVIII, 332, [4] pp., parallel text in Russian and English, with 50 plates by Gustave Doré for Paradise Lost. Original publisher's cream cloth richly decorated in colours and gold on upper cover, calf spine embossed and gilt, green silk page-marker with a small metal embossed tag in the shape of a book, small area of loss to plate 49. Beautiful production of the Russian translation of this famous epic poem illustrated with 50 plates by Gustave Doré. Rare in such fresh unrestored condition. Gustave Doré's romantic style of illustration, supremely imaginative and richly detailed, was ideally suited to literary subjects. His wood-engraved illustrations for John Milton's Paradise Lost, recounting mankind's fall from the grace of God through the work of Satan, were among his finest and most dramatic works. Here they accompany a Russian translation by A. Shulgovskaya with the original text in English printed in the footnotes. It took two years for the Saint Petersburg leading publisher Marks to prepare the Milton's masterpiece for publication, and the first edition finally came out in 1878. Marks was hoping that "the Russian public will receive the book with at least a fraction of that love and affection that I have invested in it. Starting work on this edition I don't count on its global success; and I know that I won't be even able to cover my costs for another several years. But it only proves that there are still idealists in this world, who are ready to work without hope for receiving any benefits in near future". It seems that Marks's romantic doubts were unsubstantiated, as in 1895 he published this amended and significantly expanded second edition. Its large format, thick expensive paper and luxurious illustrated binding make it one of the most beautiful publications that came out in Russia at the turn of the XIX century.

Marbled boards and endpapers, gilt ruling to edges of leather on boards. Bindings gilt stamp signed by MacDonald Bindery in New York. Frontispiece illustration with tissue guard in each volume.

These volumes contains the major prose works of Stevenson; later volumes in the series (not offerred here) gathered his "Letters and Miscellanies" and "Poetry and Ballads." James MacDonald (1850-1920) was born in Scotland and trained there as a bookbinder. He immigrated to the United States in 1873 and began working with William Matthews, a leading American bookbinder. By 1880 he had established his own business - The Macdonald bindery which quickly gained a reputation for skilled and beautiful work. According to the Boston Evening Transcript for May 22, 1912, Macdonald purchased the entire works of the famous Club Bindery from the estate of Robert Hoe. [The Club Bindery had closed in 1909 and the staff had moved to Cleveland to the Rowfant Bindery.] For several decades The Macdonald Bindery produced truly fine bindings for themselves and others.

Ford's pre-Raphaelite-inspired drawings (many dozens of them) bring these true stories of historical valor to life. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Fine/Good to Very Good. Illus. by Henry J.

      1895Paris, Librairie de l'art indépendant, 1895. Broché, 174 x 233 mm, 134 pp. Petites fentes au dos, exemplaire solide. EDITION ORIGINALE. UN DES 480 EXEMLAIRES NUMEROTES sur papier Vélin (après 10 Japon impérial et 20 Chine). Supercherie littéraire magistralement orchestrée par Pierre Louys, qui inventa Bilitis, la rivale de Sappho sur l'île de Lesbos, et traduisit ses pièces saphiques qu'il aurait découvertes sur les murs d'un tombeau souterrain où reposait l'amoureuse de Mnasidika ! Le secret dura que quelques semaines : " titre simple d'une convention subtile pour qui sait que Bilitis n'exista jamais" (Camille Mauclaire, Mercure de France, Avril 1895). Le succès fut à la hauteur du scandale, Nathalie Barney et Renée Vivien en firent leur livre de chevet, Claude Debussy fit, en 1897, une adaptation musicale de trois chansons de Bilitis.

      Paris, Rueff et Cie, (1895-1897) (ii), iv, 346 pp. Folio. Quater red chagrin, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered, uncut. Illustrated with 10 photographs, 43 wood engravings, and 50 large coloured plates. All published (5 fascicules) of this rare and monumental work. No copy recorded in the cat. Bibliothque Nationale. The work was realized trhrough the combined effort of the best dermatologists of that period in France. Together with over 20 entries in G&M. The unsurpassed chromolithographs in this work were made by Lemercier, the unrivalled master. The aim of this work was to provide a diagnostic tool with suggestions for a rational treatment of the various cutaneous diseases. The material presented was based on the rich collection of the museum of l'Hpital Saint-Louis, the finest in the world on the subject. The Muse, founded in 1866 started with the modest collection Devergie of watercoulours and photographs. By 1895 the collection became the most important in the world. The most important part of the collectiom are the MOULAGES (three demensional coloured mouldings). The master mouleur was M. Baretta, a highly gifted artist. His first moulage was created in 1867, and the end of 1894 he had created 1800

        My Climbs in the Alps and Caucasus.

      De luxe edition, one of 24 copies on Japan paper, signed by Mummery, of which 20 were for sale, this being copy no. 12. Tall 8vo. pp. xii, 360; lithographed frontispiece, 10 photogravure or other plates, illusts. to text; some spotting at front and rear, else very clean, very good in the original half pigskin by Zaehnsdorf, leather lettering pieces to spine, t.e.g.Mummery pioneered the ridges and difficult pinnacles of the Alps. His list of climbs is remarkable, including the first ascents of the Grepon, the Zmutt Ridge of the Matterhorn, and the Charmoz, with Alexander Burgener; Mummery later led the Duke of the Abruzzi on the Matterhorn, again along the Zmutt Ridge. He also pioneered guideless climbing, making the first such ascent of the Brenva Ridge on Mont Blanc. Two chapters relate Mummery's climbing experiences in the Caucasus. He died in 1895, aged 40, while reconnoitring Nanga Parbat in the Himalaya. Mummery's own account of his climbs went through several editions, all but the first posthumous, and in common with other mountaineering classics the first edition was issued in this de luxe form, printed specially on Japan paper, and signed by the author. Mummery's book rarely comes onto the market in this de luxe version.

      1 brochure in-8 oblong, E. Roger & Cie, 52 rue des Dames, Paris, s.d. [ circa 1895-1896 ], 30 pp. Très rare catalogue témoin des premiers véhicules Roger (catalogue lég. plié, très bon état par ailleurs). Brillant polytechnicien, Emile Roger (1825-1898) découvre à Mannheim les véhicules produits par Carl Benz. Distributeur exclusif de la marque allemande en France, il y développe fortement la marque, en participant notamment à l'Exposition Universelle et en étant primé à la 1ère course Paris-Rouen (1894). Mais il oublie de plus en plus de mentionner le nom du partenaire allemand sur son matériel et ses catalogues, et leur collaboration se termine bientôt. Mais le présent catalogue reste un témoignage remarquable des origines de Mercedes. As can be read on the Daimler site, "after taking a look at the Benz Patent Motor Car designed by Carl Benz, French engineer Émile Roger recognized the magnitude of this invention early on. In the spring of 1888 he acquired the sole distribution rights for Benz vehicles and engines in France and by doing so paved the way for the establishment of an international sales organization".
