        A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION - Alma-Tadema.

      A DIFFERENCE OF OPINIONStaalgravure uit 1897 naar het schilderij (Opus CCCXXXIX) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Gesigneerd in potlood door Alma-Tadema en de graveur. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 34,4 x 20,3 cm.Het gekibbel tussen geliefden was een populair 19de-eeuws onderwerp dat zich kon afspelen in iedere gewenste historische periode of setting, in de Klassieke Oudheid, middeleeuwen, 18de-eeuw of in de moderne tijd.De mannelijk figuren in werken van Alma-Tadema hebben veelal een tamelijk emotieloze lichaamsuitdrukking, In A Difference of Opinion wijkt de man, die zijn geliefde van iets tracht te overtuigen, daar van af.Alma-Tadema verwerkte veelvuldig archeologische vondsten in zijn voorstellingen. In 1860 was men begonnen met het opgraven van Pompeï en leverde sindsdien een schat aan kunstvoorwerpen en informatie. De bronzen cherubijn met een gans die in deze voorstelling het waterbekken siert, staat thans in het Museo Nazionale te Napels.Prijs: 1.650,- .

        The Science of Political Economy, by Henry George, Author of ?Progress and poverty?.

      New York and London: Continental Publishing Co. 1897 - Folio, (261x195mm); XIV, [15]-214 p.- // Encuadernación en tela con tejuelo; canto superior guillotinado y dorado, resto de cantos sin guillotinar; principalmente intonso; muy buen papel verjurado. Tejuelo perdido parcialmente, cofia y pie rozados. Pequeña fractura de punta inferior en interior de contraplano trasero.- // Proc.: De la biblioteca del periodista Samuel Selwyn Chamberlain (1851-1916), con dedicatoria autógrafa del hijo del autor.- // Muy buen ejemplar de la reducidísima impresión privada y preliminar de la última obra del economista, periodista y filósofo Henry George (1839-1897). George, a cuyas ideas se ha denominado "georgismo", fue un liberal muy peculiar. Empecinado defensor del libre comercio, simultáneamente lo fue del "impuesto único", (.) sostuvo que los bienes naturales (la tierra, el petróleo) deberían estar o nacionalizados (nadie debía arrogarse beneficios por lo que no había producido), o fuertemente gravados sobre la parte de su valor que no correspondiese a mejoras. George consideraba que el origen de la pobreza estaba en que, en un mercado libre, la mayor parte de la riqueza creada por los avances tecnológicos se acumulaba en manos de los propietarios, como renta emanada de un valor atribuido a los recursos naturales en sí, al margen del valor correspondiente al trabajo realizado con ellos. El punto de partida era que la economía política es una ciencia necesaria, (.): "Son muchos los hombres que no son deshonestos si se confiesan ignorantes en materias como la astronomía, la química, la geología, o la filología, pero pocos serían honestos si dijeran ser ignorantes en economía política. Aunque lo admitan e incluso lo proclamen, realmente no lo sienten. Muchos dicen que no saben nada de economía política -de hecho muchos no conocen el significado de ese término. Sin embargo, esos mismos hombres sostienen, con la mayor de las convicciones, opiniones sobre asuntos como las causas que afectan a los salarios, los precios y los beneficios, los efectos de los aranceles, la influencia de la maquinaria que ahorra trabajo, la función y la naturaleza del dinero, las razones de las "épocas de bonanza" y de las "malas rachas", etcétera. Los hombres que viven en sociedad siempre tienen algún tipo de teorías político-económicas -buenas o malas, correctas o incorrectas. El modo de asegurarse de si esas teorías son correctas, y si no lo son, de sustituirlas por otras teorías verdaderas, es mediante una investigación sistemática y cuidadosa como la que me propongo en este trabajo." Y se lo proponía porque, como figura en el prefacio de esta tirada en un texto ausente de la primera edición oficial, (.), "so I have thought it the most useful thing I could do to drop as far as I could the work of propaganda and the practical carrying forward of the movement to do this." Y, de hecho, su escritura su prolongó al menos desde 1891 hasta 1897.(.) New York Journal, la revista en la que publicaba habitualmente, fue publicando como homenaje "The Science of Political Economy" en el punto en el que George la había dejado. Con el fin de proteger la autoría de Henry George, su familia, encargó a Continental Publishing hacer una impresión de tirada muy corta, privada y no venal, reservando los derechos a la viuda, Annie C. George. El ejemplar que ofrecemos de esta reducidísima impresión privada, preliminar y no venal (solo localizamos tres ejemplares en bibliotecas de Estados Unidos -uno incompleto- y ninguno en Europa) posee una aclaratoria dedicatoria autógrafa del hijo de Henry George al regalárselo al periodista y editor de prensa Samuel Selwyn Chamberlain: "This volume, one of a very small edition, printed solely for copyrighting purposes (.)".- // Refs.: No localizamos ninguna mención a esta edición, salvo la existencia de dos ejemplares en la Library of Congress, uno de ellos con solo las primeras 56 páginas.

        Grasset, Eugene - Extravagance.

      Lithografie uit 1897 ontworpen door Eugène Samuel Grasset, uitgegeven door G. de Malherbe. Afm. (afbeelding): 130 x 30 cm. Grasset (1845 - 1917) was een Zwitsers grafisch vormgever die in Parijs werkte tijdens de Belle Epoque. Voordat hij faam maakte met lithografieën, experimenteerde Grasset met keramiek en ontwierp hij meubels en behang. Vanaf 1877 weidde hij zich geheel aan de grafische vormgeving en illustreerde boeken, ontwierp kalenders en covers voor tijdschriften, en legde daarmee de basis voor het vervaardigen van prachtige gelithografeerde affiches. Grasset wordt gezien als een pionier van de Art Nouveau.Het blad komen uit de serie Dix Estampes Decoratives (caracteres de femmes, fleurs emblematiques) uitgegeven in een oplage van 750 stuks. In "Extravagence"' wandelt een schone dame door een veld dieprode celosia"s en gunt zichzelf een beetje extravagantie: een lorgnet en een waaier, beide niet echt essentieel bij het wandelen door de natuur. Prijs: € 2.450,- (incl 21% BTW, excl. lijst).
