Matsuzaki U-ichi
1895. <p>[CREATIVE PRINT MOVEMENT] Matsuzaki U-ichi. <b>Untitled "EIGHT VIEWS OF NAGASAKI"</b> 8 oblong ôban size prints, tipped onto sheets and overlain by English and Japanese bilingual descriptions of the scenes depicted. The sheets are 30.5 x 38.2 cm. Matsuzaki [1895- 1972] did these prints in the early 1950s. He had attended Tôkyô Bijutsu Gakkô and was an art professor in Nagasaki through and after the Pacific War. An almost unheard of group of lovely landscape prints of a city devastated by the atom bombing, which is mentioned but the effects of which are never depicted. If one didn't know by the text, one might think it a pre-War production and, indeed, perhaps it was, and unpublished, was repurposed for a much different audience. Just a guess, but may bear more research. The prints and folders are in very good condition, despite their apparent fragility.</p><p><br /></p>

MATHER, John A.
John. A. Mather, Titusville, Pennsylvania, 1895. (10 x 13 1/4 inches). Letterpress title, 2 preliminary leaves of text. 12 photographs, printing-out paper prints, each linen backed as issued, with Mather's caption in the negative. Publisher's dark blue cloth, covers bordered in blind, upper covers lettered in gilt. Important photographic record of the early days of the U.S. Petroleum Industry. The work was made and published by the pioneer photographer of the Pennsylvania oil fields, John A. Mather. The first oil well in the United States was drilled by E. L. Drake in Oil Creek, Pennsylvania, near Titusville, in 1859. On the 29th of August oil was struck. John A. Mather, a recent English immigrant and aspiring photographer, heard of Drake's discovery and the ensuing oil rush, and moved to Titusville in October 1860. He set up a gallery, built a floating photo studio and over the next forty years compiled an exhaustive photographic record of the growth of the oil industry. Mather's photographs rarely turn up in the marketplace. The photographs in the present work were printed in 1895 from earlier negatives. Most photographs are identified and dated in the negative. Mather's photographs serve up a visual narrative of this transitional period, documenting the rapid growth of the region from 1864-1880s, when it emerged as the first site of substantial oil wealth in the United States. Mr. Drake is shown along with his first oil well. Mather also depicts the early days of Titusville. The Oil Exchange Hotel is set amidst rolling hills marked with numerous erector-set-like vertical … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mann, Thomas, Schriftsteller und Nobelpreisträger (1875-1955).
An den Verleger Kurt Desch über das Buch des Emigranten Jonas Lesser (1895-1968) "Thomas Mann in der Epoche seiner Vollendung" (München 1952): "[...] gewiss habe ich seinerzeit Ihren Brief erhalten und Dr. Lesser sogleich von Ihrer grundsätzlich bereitwilligen Haltung tröstliche Mitteilung gemacht. Noch mehr freut es mich nun, dass Sie meine recht hohe Meinung von dem Buch teilen und es verlegen wollen. Es ist das ein generöses Wagnis, das mir keinen geringen Respekt einflösst. Aber wer weiss, vielleicht greift das Publikum zu. Aus Leipzig schreibt mir Dr. Hans Mayer, dass von seinem Buch über mein Werk in vier Wochen 12 000 Stück verkauft worden sind. Lesser, der sich so sehr danach sehnte, seine getreue Arbeit veröffentlicht zu sehen, wird gewiss mit Ihren Vorschlägen einverstanden sein, und ich segne den Vertrag [...]" - Im beiliegenden gedruckten Waschzettel wird Thomas Mann zitiert: "Im Gegensatz zu gewissen bedeutenden Arbeiten, die mein Werk hauptsächlich unter dem gesellschaftskritischen Gesichtspunkt würdigen, richtet diese all ihr Augenmerk auf die rein künstlerischen Eigenschaften, Erfindungen, Neuerungen, Eigentümlichkeiten - und zwar mit einer Akribie, Um- und Einsicht, Sensitivität für das sprachliche Detail, die Wortfügung, den technischen 'Witz', die nach meiner Erfahrung etwas Einzigartiges darstellt". - Das erwähnte Buch von Hans Mayer ist "Thomas Mann.

A group of interrelated short stories, "running through many of them, though not always immediately relevant, is a consistent mythological pattern involving the Lake of Hali, Carcosa, the mystery of the Hyades, and the King in Yellow, which is a mind-destroying book and also a tattered personage of supernatural power -- all symbolic of Death and the land of lost souls" (Bleiler 364, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction).

Heathfield Park Lawn Tennis Club, London, 1895. Folio ledger book. Approximately 172 pages, with many additional printed insertions. Contemporary quarter burgundy roan over cloth, with printed or stamped label. The binding is worn and displays modest dampstaining but is sound and good, interior is near fine. A bound manuscript and print account of the formation and history of an early London tennis club. The ledger contains minutes, details of meetings, elections and rule making, reports in the ledger signed by various officers of the club, and brackets for tournaments (including ladies' singles, ladies' consolation, and mixed-doubles tournaments). There are over 30 excellent scrap elements neatly tipped into the ledger at the appropriate places: mostly printed ephemera including nicely printed compilations of rules, lists of officers, a large folded broadside of club by-laws, invitations to fancy dress balls, financial reports, autographed letters from correspondents, accounts, and dance cards. The Heathfield Park Lawn Tennis Club was formed in 1888 by Emil Ernst, William Knight, Major R.P.B. Rodick, Dr. Edward E. Barret, and William Whitaker, and based at Willesden Green in North West London. These records date from the formation of the club until 1895. By 1892, several women were elected both into membership and as officers of the club. While tennis in its many iterations has existed since the Middle Ages or earlier, the modern version was established in 1872. The first lawn tennis club was organized at Leamington Spa in 1874, and the All England Lawn Tennis Club establi … [Click Below for Full Description]

SONNAVILLE, Louis de, S.J.
De nieuwe muziekleermiddelen van het systeem-Sonnaville.[Leiden, Johannes Eggers, ca. 1895]. 25 items in 1 box. All items in a green half cloth box (37 x 29 x 4 cm) which opens at the front and can be closed with cloth strings, with a letterpress title-label mounted on top. Very rare, more or less complete collection of all the materials regarding the method for learning music developed by Louis de Sonnaville, as sold by the Leiden music seller Johannes Eggers. Since the box contains all the items advertised by Eggers, thereby including booklets aimed at parents as well as teachers, and the items are numbered according to his advertisements, it is probable that the box was originally compiled as a showcase and was not used for teaching.De Sonnaville was director of music at the Willibrordus Gymnasium at Katwijk, a function in which he led five music teachers and an orchestra and choir containing almost half the school. He had noted that most of his pupils had been given piano lessons at home, which had led to a dislike of the instrument. De Sonnaville set out to develop a system for music education particularly aimed at children. A large part of the method therefore consisted of visualisations and games, the most famous of which is the piano-lotto, a variant of a lottery game. Starting with the completion of his method in 1889, he was very active in its promotion, gaining support of prominent pedagogues and musicians including Johanna Veth, Catharina van Rennes, Willem Kes and Willem Mengelberg, who was himself a pupil of De Sonnaville. However, as De Sonnaville kept improv … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lippincott Company [Morrison and Gibb, Printers, Edinburgh], 1895. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Richards, Frank; Bedford, F.D.. Twelve volumes (complete), octavo size, total pp. approximately 3,100, one of 150 copies on hand-made paper. Tobias George Smollett (ca.1721-1771), a Scottish author, was known for his "picaresque" novels (stories which depict the adventures "of a roguish, but 'appealing hero', of low social class, who lives by his wits in a corrupt society" (n.b., quote from Wiki). His best-known novels are included in this set, such as "Roderick Random", "Peregrine Pickle", and "Humphrey Clinker"; while perhaps less read today than in the past, his works influenced such major authors as Charles Dickens and mention of him pops up in Thackeray's "Vanity Fair" and Eliot's "Middlemarch". The editor of this set, George Edward Bateman Saintsbury (1845-1933) was a well-known literary critic and historian, with his work covering a wide range of topics: French literature, English literature, and Poetry, in addition to providing numerous articles for the ninth edition (1875-1889) of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. The illustrations (other than the frontis in Volume I) by Frank Richards (1863-1935), known mostly as a landscape and figure painter, working in both oil and watercolour; he was elected as a full member of the RBA (Royal Society of British Artists) in 1921.

FARLEY, James Conway
Richmond, Virginia, 1895. Two very rare portrait photographs taken by James Conway Farley, now recognized as America's first prominent African-American photographer, taken at his studio in Richmond, Virginia. Both are cabinet cards in fine condition (measuring 3.25" x 5"), with blind stamped borders and the studio name printed in maroon: "Jefferson Art Gallery, 523 Broad Street, Richmond, Va." Each portrait is of the same unidentified young woman wearing a different fashionable dress and hat. She appears to be in her twenties, and possibly of mixed race. Both photographs were likely taken not long after Farley opened his studio, "The Jefferson" in 1895. A historically important, scarce survival.
