        Lecons de Violon.

      Poster for Violin and music lessons. Paris: Chaix 1898. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1899. Plate no. 175. Indrammet på syrefrit karton i lys eg med anti-reflektivt glas med en UV beskyttelse på 70 %, 1895. Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art.By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche.

        Sur Une Substance Nouvelle Radio-active, Contenue Dans La Pechblende...

      Paris, 1898. First Edition. Hard Cover. 4to. pages 175-178, P. Curie, S. Curie, presentee par M. Becquerel. [Bound with:] Sur une nouvelle substance fortement radio-active, contenue dans la pechblende. Paris, 1898; FIRST EDITION, pages 1215-1217, 4to; P. Curie and Mme. Curie and G. Bemont, presentee par M. Becquerel. [Bound with:] Sur le spectre d'une substance radio-active. Note de E. Demarcay.Paris, 1898; FIRST EDITION, page 1218, 4to. Published in: Comptes Rendus Hebdomadiares des Seances del'Academie des Sciences. Paris, 1898, volume 127; original black and white paper covered boards, with printed label on front panel; 4to, 144-209 pp. [second title page] 1180-1302 pp. Minor wear at extremities, otherwise a fine copy of these rare and important works. The Curies discovered radium shortly after their discovery of the radio-active substance polonium, both found in pitchblende (uranium ore). Polonium was so named after Mme. Curie's native country, Poland. Radium was estimated by Mme. Curie (in 1898) to have a probable atomic weight of 226.2 and was about two million times as radio-active as uranium (Printing and the Mind of Man, 394). Radium has found many uses in medicine and industry. In1903 the Curies and Becquerel were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics; Becquerel's work was instrumental to the Curies" discoveries.The above paper "Sur le spectre d'une substance radio-active" by Demarcay, confirmed the Curies' discovery of the presence of radium in pitchblende. Marie (Maria Sklodowska) Curie (1867-1934). Chemist, physicist, Professor at the Sorbonne, discoverer of the elements radium and polonium. Madame Curie succeeded her husband, Pierre Curie, as professor of physics at the Sorbonne in Paris, in 1906, thus becoming the first woman titular professor at Sorbonne. She founded the Radium Institute in Warsaw, in 1913; she visited the United States in 1921 and was presented with a gram of radium-salt by President Warren G. Harding. Madame Curie was the only person to receive the Nobel Prize twice - once in physics,in 1903 and again in chemistry, in 1911. She was nominated for membership in the French Academy of Science in 1911, but was rejected by one vote, because she was a woman. The Curie (unit quantity of radon in radio-active equilibrium with 1 gram of radium) was named in honor of Marie and Pierre Curie. Madame Curie was a pioneer in the use of radio-activity in medicine, i.e. in treating cancer. This brave, brilliant and diligent lady research scientist ultimately gave her life for her work; she died of leukemia, caused by over-exposure to radio-active substances, at Haute Savoie, France, on July 4, 1934.Norman 545.

        THE KLONDYKE NUGGET. By S.F. Cody

      Belfast, Ireland: David Allen & Sons, 1898. Chromolithographic poster, 20 x 30 inches. Losses and tears along bottom edge, not affecting image; several small tears at other edges. Some light soiling. Image bright and fresh. Promotional flyer for a local theatre pasted to right edge. Good plus. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the 19th century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867-1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them are perhaps true), including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby; Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, plays the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. The poster shows Cody at the center, surrounded by an angry mob wielding guns. To the left are four other figures, including Lela and an Indian on horseback. An advertisement for the Clarence Theatre in Pontypridd is pasted to the right side of the sheet, dated Monday, Dec. 19, indicating that the play runs through the week.

This is in better conditon than the previous 3 They sold for : Oct 2010 @ £8500 - Nov 2011 @ £7700 - Feb 2013 @ £8950.
