        Harper's Bazaar 1896. FULL YEAR BOUND VOLUME

      New York.: Harper Brothers.. 1896.. Massive volume; three-quarter leather binding 16 x 11 inches; 1100 pp. Fifty-two lavishly illustrated issues including Supplements. Of great interest are the 23 tipped-in folded patterns for clothing (on light-weight paper): these are for women's garments, young girls' garments; etc. Except for two that are loose, these are bound into the volume, and all are in very good condition. Copious illustrations of women's and young girls' costumes are featured in the newspaper; these include bicycling costumes, formal evening wear, sporting costumes, gowns for various occasions including weddings; also shawls, hats, embroidery patterns and more. Emphasis is placed on sport for women: side saddle horseback riding; crewing (rowing); basketball; golf; etc. Greatest emphasis, however, is placed on bicycling, with numerous illustrations depicting a woman and her "wheel"; considerable advertising aimed at this new market, eg. a full page article by Martha McCulloch-Williams endorsing Fibre Chamois with four illustrations of costumes by Redfern; also a multi-page article on "The Making of a Woman's Bicycle," and more. Full-page illustrations of costumes by M. Felix and House of Worth. Several pages in the December 12 issue are duplicated and/or bound out of sequence. There are several short marginal tears (repaired with archival tape). Abrasions to exterior: spine edges and corners of covers; overall very good clean condition. ITEM WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 20 LBS - WE WILL QUOTE EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES. The rear pages of each issue of the newspaper feature captioned cartoon images (6 x 4.5 inches or so) focusing on class-centered faux pas as well as African-American, Irish or Chinese characters whose utterances are rendered in dialect. The newspaper's extensive single and double-page illustrations focus on costumes of the day (many by Felix and Worth) but other features reflect wider-ranging interests: these include profiles of Helen Keller and Harriet Beecher Stowe and fiction by Octave Thanet. Illustrations of theatrical interest include illustrated product endorsements offered by Lillian Russell and Sarah Bernhardt. Loads of full-page illustrations of British royalty and English historical subjects make clear the Anglophile leanings of the publisher and no doubt the bulk of the newspaper's readers. The volume was part of the library of Jacob Kamm of Portland Oregon. Kamm, a prominent businessman in 19th century Portland, founded the Oregon Steam Navigation Company and was heavily involved in real estate in the city. His estate was valued at over four million dollars at the time of his death in 1912. The volume is in very good condition, tight and attractive in its binding. Uncommon in such good condition. .

      Albumen photograph. Measuring 6" x 7.5" on 10" x 12" cardstock mount. Stains on the edges of the mount, ink numbers and date (Sept. 22, 1896) at the bottom of the image, slight indented line on the right hand side, the image is otherwise very near fine.

In the foreground is a young woman with a box camera, another plays the guitar oblivious to the girl behind her pretending to cut her hair with scissors. Another holds a ceremonial sword, while two girls, arm-in-arm, turn away from the camera. A series of ink numbers above the date, might indicate some sort of code; we haven't cracked it. Cheerful and prosperous looking teenage girls, acting like teenage girls in the early days of snapshot photograph. .

Feininger invites van Ostayen to join him and his wife on Boxing Day. "The five pictures have not arrived yet, but we mustn't wait for them in offer to be able to welcome you - Because of the pitiful state of transportation it is very uncertain now when they will arrive. We wish you a non too dreary Christmas.in the strange Big City! Only a very easy spirit would talk of 'Merry' now." Feininger signs in full, "Lyonel Feininger." An original woodcut showing a church or cathedral in the upper left corner on this golden yellow sheet of onion skin paper. The woodcut is also suggestive of the Bauhaus 1919 Manifesto cover.

        Symbolic Logic, Part 1, Elementary, with Envelope, Card, and Counters

      , 'presentation copy' is done with a circular blindstamp on the title page. There is a single card with counters housed in an envelope, but not the pamphlet which is absent. There are 7 grey and 8 red counters as opposed to the 4 red and 5 grey mentioned in Williams, Madan, Green pg 197. Also, these counters are a little larger at 3/4" as opposed to 1/2", so this seems to be a different issue of the game. The envelope is dated 1896

        Studies of Western Life

      New York: The Albertype Co.,, 1896. With descriptions by Granville Stuart. Oblong octavo. Original brown cloth, silver lettered on front cover, string ties, floral patterned endpapers. 12 leaves of plates. Neat ownership inscriptions at head of title page. An excellent copy. First published in 1890, this edition, with the copyright dated 1896, is apparently unrecorded in Copac and OCLC. An important work in the formation of the mythical status of the American West. Charles Marion Russell (1864-1926), known as "The Cowboy Artist" is, along with Frederick Remington, one of the great artists of the "Wild West". "The other significant event of 1890 [in Russell's life] was the publication of Studies of Western Life, an inspiration of Ben Roberts, a saddlemaker friend of Charlie's in Helena... Printed in Brooklyn and copyrighted by Roberts, Studies of Western Life was an attempt to cash in on Charlie's rising fame as the Cowboy Artist and the general public's steadily mounting interest in the Wild West [but] there is no evidence that Charlie ever made any money on the project" (John Taliaferro, Charles M. Russell: The Life and Times of America's Cowboy Artist, 2003, pp. 84-85). The descriptive letterpress is by another big figure of the West, the pioneer, cattleman and one-time vigilante Granville Stuart (1834-1918). Studies of Western Life is cited in the bibliography of Dee Brown's The American West (1994).

      - Radierung, 1896, auf Velin. 32,7:38,5 cm. Breitrandiger Abdruck, Knickfalte in der linken unteren Ecke geglättet. Obwohl Delteil selbst ein talentierter Künstler war, ist er bis heute in erster Linie als Verfasser des mehrbändigen Werkes „Peintre-Graveur illustré", bekannt, ein Nachschlagewerk über französische Graphiker. Bei der dargestellten Malerin könnte es sich um die US-amerikanische Malerin des Impressionismus Lilla Cabot Perry (1848 Bosten – Hancock/N.H. 1933) handeln, die von 1889-1898 die Sommer in Giverny in der Nähe von Claude Monet (1840-1926) verbrachte, der großen Einfluß auf ihr Werk ausübte. Die bei Wikipedia abgebildeten Porträts der Künstlerin aus unterschiedlichen Jahren unterstützen diese Annahme.

        Autograph Note Signed "G. Bonvalot" to André Liesse, with the Original Envelope with Postal Stamps].

      Lyon 1896 - Lyon, 20 February 1896. Octavo (ca. 18x11,5 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper with printed letterhead "Quai de la Charite, 3". With the original envelope inscribed by Bonvalot, with Lyon postal ink stamps. Both the letter and the envelope are mounted in a paper folder (ca. early 20th century) titled in ink "Bonvalot, explorateur français". Two newspaper clippings with Bonvalot's portraits are also mounted in the folder on the opposite side. The folder is worn at extremities, with a tear on the hinge, but the letter and the envelope are in very good condition. A short note by Pierre Gabriel Édouard Bonvalot, French explorer of Central Asia and Tibet. Bonvalot writes to André Liesse, a French Journalist and economist, thanking him for his "precious information" and asking about a forthcoming meeting with M. De Chambrice. By the time when this note was written Bonvalot had already become famous after his expeditions to Russian Central Asia in 1880-82 and 1886 (Pamir, Alai and Karakoram Mountains), and to Tibet in 1889-1890 when he crossed Asia from Chinese Turkestan to the French Indochina through the Tian Shan Mountains, the Tarim Basin, the Lop Nor and the Tibetan Plateau. The letter is supplemented with two newspaper clippings with the portraits of Bonvalot, one of which shows him with Prince Henri of Orléans (1867-1901) who accompanied Bonvalot during two of his travels to Central Asia.

        Sketchbook of 19 pages of pencil and pen and ink sketches and captioned cartoons, all signed by initials S.B. and dated (January to April 1896)

      London, 1896. 1 vols. 5-1/2 x 8 inches. Black pebble-grained cloth, slightly rubbed, faint waterstaining to topmost margin, else very good. Original Late Victorian Cartoon Sketchbook An amateur production, but quite a nice one. The artist, residing at 170 Loughboro Road, Brixton, was heavily influenced by the work of the great comic artist Phil May, and comes quite close to May's spirit and technique, particularly in his depiction of sandwich men with incongruous signs (an ugly man advertises "The Ladies Idol", a hungry one, a remedy for overeating.) Of particular interest is the drawing of an extremely nondescript woman standing in front of a St. James Theatre board advertising "A Woman of No Importance", Wilde's play having opened two years earlier.The drawings, most of them captioned cartoons in the style of Punch, deal with such subjects as music hall comics, Cockneys, female fashions, drunks, sport (a one-eyed, one-legged player is asked "I thought you'd given up football" and replies "I had to for a time, but I'm all right again now"), weddings, street accidents, children, and rich Americans ("I reckon I and the gals are just going to give this hyar London Season fits.")UNIQUE AND DELIGHTFUL.

        Thus Spake Zarathustra

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1896. First American edition of the author's magnum opus. Octavo, original green cloth. The first edition is of legendary scarcity as it was reported that sales of the title sold just 257 copies before June 30, 1897. An excellent copy with some light fading to the front cloth. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.Friedrich Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most famous and influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. With blazing intensity and poetic brilliance, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force.

        "Oria am Luganosee" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 81x71cm; unten rechts signiert; verso vom Künstler auf dem Klebeetikett handschriftlich betitelt; um 1930

      . [Maße in der schlichten Holzleiste 88x78cm.] Otto Pippel gehört zu den bedeutendsten Impressionisten im süddeutschen Raum. Als Sohn deutscher Eltern, die nach Lodz ausgewandert sind, tritt Pippel 1896 mit dem Vorhaben, Innenarchitekt und Dekorationsmaler zu werden, in die Kunstgewerbeschule Straßburg ein. Er muß das Studium allerdings kurz darauf unterbrechen, da er für vier Jahre in die russische Armee eingezogen wird. Danach nimmt er 1905 sein Studium in Karlsruhe bei Friedrich Fehr und Julius Hugo Bergmann wieder auf, wechselt aber 1907 an die Dresdner Akademie zu Gotthard Kuehl. Im folgenden Jahr unternimmt Pippel eine Reise auf die Krim und entschließt sich 1909 in Planegg bei München seinen festen Wohnsitz zu wählen. Noch im selben Jahr bereist er Paris und wird durch die französischen Impressionisten bestärkt, die Licht- und Eindrucksmalerei weiterzuentwickeln. 1912 schließt Pippel sich der "Luitpoldgruppe" an und stellt zum ersten Mal eine kleine Winterlandschaft im Münchner Glaspalast aus. Seit 1915 ist er regelmäßig in der Galerie Brakl in München mit Ausstellungen vertreten. Bei Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges wird er eingezogen. Nach dem Krieg kehrt Pippel in sein Haus in Planegg zurück, wo er bis zum Ende seines Lebens bleibt und ein umfangreiches Werk schafft. Als glänzender Techniker der Farbe malt Pippel wundervolle Landschaften, Stillleben und Stadtveduten, aber auch die Figurenmalerei beherrscht er in perfekt impressionistischer Manier. Vor allem seine Münchner Motive, wie der Hofgarten, der Englische Garten und der Hirschgarten, sind berühmt geworden. Otto Pippels Werke befinden sich heute in der Städtischen Galerie im Lenbachhaus ("Das Undosabad in Starnberg" und "Großstadtstraße") sowie in der Städtischen Galerie Rosenheim ("Am chinesischen Turm", "Sommer" und "Kammermusik")..

        Eigenh. Postkarte mit U.

      München, 24. IV. 1896.. 1 S. Qu.-8vo.. An den Musiker Camillo Horn: "Brief und Zeitung habe ich vor einigen Tagen erhalten. Die Verzögerung meiner Antwort haben die Osterferien verschuldet, welche ich, trotz des schlechten Wetters, auf dem Lande verbrachte um wieder einmal reine Luft zu atmen. Ihrem Wunsche im Betreff des Herrn Gura, bin ich mit Vergnügen nachgekommen. Gestern sprach ich Herrn Gura und bat ihn Ihre Wünsche zu berücksichtigen; er sagte mir auch, dass mein Sohn bereits darüber mit ihm sprach und Gura nächstens gesonnen sei, nach Einsicht der Werke Ihnen zu schreiben. Bisher sei er sehr stark durch nothwendigste Correspondenz in Anspruch genommen gewesen, dass es ihm nicht möglich war Ihnen zu antworten. Ich zweifle nicht daran, dass er unseren Bitten nicht ein freundliches Entgegenkommen gewährt [...]". - Der Vater von Richard Strauss wurde in München Gitarrist bei Herzog Maximilian in Bayern. Später wirkte er bis 1889 als Erster Hornist in der Kgl. Bayerischen Hofkapelle und war anschließend bis 1896 Lehrer an der Akademie der Tonkunst.
