        Red Star Line / New York - Antwerp (circa 1899)

      Sackett & Wilhelms Litho & Ptg. Co., New York - Vintage Poster, in a large format, by Henri Cassiers. "The Red Star Line", an American-Belgian shipping company founded in Philadelphia, 1871, had become the third largest transatlantic passenger carrier by 1906. Cassiers worked for the company over 25 years, designing their advertising posters, postcards & menus. His distinguished theme of brightly dressed peasants is clean and precise; the colours are flat and bright. This poster has never been folded and has had several edge tears professionally repaired.(see photos) The largest repaired tear extended about 4.5 inches into the center left border,is difficult to see in the photos. Small chips & creases remain around the border outside of the framing area and there are several amateur tape repairs along one edge on the back. Overall, an excellent example of early 20th century lithography and 'shipping art' by this noteable Belgian artist. It must be said that the paper used with this poster is now, somewhat fragile. Every caution will be taken to ship this delicate item securely. Gentle handling and proper archival framing is recommended. Other photos available if required. Inquiries welcome.

        Portraits of Native Americans.

      Chicago: Privately Printed, 1899. - 32 fine colortypes of portraits of Native Americans (7 portraits each 8 4/8 x 5 4/8 inches; and 25 each 11 x 8 inches), each SIGNED AND INSCRIBED on the verso by Burbank. Preserved in a modern pocket binder. Provenance: with Swann Galleries, 16th of June, 2005, lot 271 A UNIQUE COLLECTION OF BURBANK'S PORTRAITS OF NATIVE AMERICANS, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED AT LENGTH BY HIM ON THE VERSOS, including Series A, 1-21, published privately in 1899 as "The Burbank Indian portraits; a collection of portraits of noted Indian chiefs and warriors". Burbank was the nephew of Edward Ayer, historian of Native-American cultures and owner of one of the largest libraries on the subject. The bibliography of his collection became the first comprehensive treatment of the literature of Native Americans. As president of the Field Columbian Museum he commissioned his nephew to create portraits of the leading Native Americans of the time. Burbank became one of the most prominent painters of Native Americans and it is said he produced the only painted portrait of Geronimo taken from life. The paintings are ethnographically correct and are often the only surviving record of the sitter. Beginning in 1897, Burbank lived and painted among the tribes, eventually completing more than 1200 works documenting at least 125 of the nation's tribes in a variety of media. The reproductions offered here are significant for the autograph notes added by Burbank on the versos of the prints. He humanizes his subjects and makes them real. In a lengthy description of Geronimo he notes that "he was most kind to animals and a kindly husband to his sick wife." He goes on to describe how Geronimo took on some his wife's duties, including keeping the house in order."With his first commission to paint Geronimo from life, Burbank travelled to to the reservation of Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Once a feared warrior, Geronimo was no longer a threat but was becoming a symbol of the plight of the Indian, by then relocated and confined to reservations. When he met Geronimo and asked to paint his portrait, Geronimo replied "one dollar" and offered Burbank a photograph of himself. Burbank had to explain through an interpreter that he wished to paint the chief, not purchase a photograph of him, and after several compromises between artist and subject, Geronimo conceded; thus began a friendship that allowed Burbank to paint several portraits of Geronimo from life; he was the only artist ever allowed to do so" (Waechter "The Art of Elbridge Ayer Burbank from the Harold and Bonnie Julsen Collection" page 8). In speaking of Chief Kicking-Bear of the Sioux tribe he says, "He wanted me to live with him the remainder of my life. When he was in Washington D. C. the Smithsonian took a plaster cast of his whole body on account of the perfect form of it." Together, an important archive containing insights on the American Indian by one the greatest portraitists of the time. Burbank's portraits now reside in some of the most august institutions in America: Art Institute of Chicago American Museum of Natural History Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library - Yale University Butler Institute of American Art C. M. Russell Museum Harvard-Diggins Library Hearst Art Gallery, St. Mary's College Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site - National Park Service Luther Burbank Home & Gardens Museum of the America West Newberry Library Peabody Museum of Archeology and Ethnology - Harvard University Phoenix Art Museum Rockford Art Museum Smithsonian American Art Museum

        Tennen Moyo Kagami

      1899. TENNEN, Kaigai. Tennen Moyo Kagami (A Mirror of Patterns by Tennen). Edited by Yamada Geiso (Yamada Geisodo Zoban). Five volumes. Contains a total of 187 full-page colour plates. Folio, 370 x 255 mm, original and/or early stitched Japanese wrappers, laid into protective chemise and beige cloth folding box with tan title-label on spine. Kyoto: Unsodo, [1899]. $ 15,000.00 The Tennen Moyo Kagami is a celebrated "pattern book" which was extremely popular from around 1890 to 1930. The "nishiki e" style woodcuts offer polychrome Kimono designs and motifs meant for use on other textiles, etc. There are several portrayals of complete kimonos, folded over a hanging pole, or stretched flat across the page. However, most of the coloured woodcuts offer traditional motifs for kimono sleeves or lower parts of the kimono. The subject matter includes: small animals, flowers, bamboo, birds, butterflies, Japanese fans, maple leaves, landscape river and mountain scenes, and abstract geometric designs. Japanese Pattern Books encompassed everything from "source books for artisans, commercial concerns manufacturing textiles, pottery, lacquered goods, fusuma and the like, to the fine-art book produced with lavish colour prints" (Hillier p. 978). Hillier refers to Tennen as "one of the most adept of pattern-designers" apart from Sekka. The Moyo Kagami by Kaigai Tennen and Kamisaka Sekka's Momoyogusa represent the most outstanding types of their kind ever issued. Both books are virtusoso examples of colour woodblock printing, produced by the most prolific and, according to Hillier, the most expert publisher of the Japanese "pattern book." Some soiling to covers, several of the interleaved protective tissues torn, a few missing. A few creases to ca. a dozen pages, otherwise, a finely preserved, subtly coloured, copy of a book normally found in heavily used and worn condition. Few copies survive intact and in nice condition. Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, pp. 978, 982.

Postmarked Beauvoir, Miss., May 18, 1899. Col. Edward Palfrey (1830-1901) was President of the Board of Governors of the Louisiana Historical Association from 1893 until his death. Col. Palfrey is mentioned in the letter here offered.Black-bordered because four months earlier, on September 18, 1898, President and Mrs. Jefferson Davis?s youngest child, Varina Anne ?Winnie? Davis, had died at the age of 34. Born in 1864, Winnie had become known as ?Daughter of the Confederacy? for her appearances with her father on behalf of Confederate veterans? groups.In full, ?Your?s has been received and I wish I could feel that an examination of my husbands papers would shed a little light upon the diplomatic relations of the Confederate government with foreign nations, but every paper Mr Davis had of much importance was seized except those which accidentally fell into the hands of an ignorant young man in Richmond who gave them out as autographs to many of his friends, and I have forgotten his name. I think Mr Slidell lost none of his papers, and it is more than probable if you would apply to Medme [sic] La Comtesse de St Roman 76 Ave Kleber Paris she might be able to help you. It is my happiness to know that the more our Confederate archives are investigated the more hightly [sic] the character of those who were the authors of them will appear. I shall go to New Orleans in Feb or March then if I can find any one fitted for the task I will have Mr Davis? papers indexed. Mr Davis was greatly astonished at Mr Bigelow?s statements in the book he wrote and said the facts were most astonishingly perverted. ?Col Ambrose Dudley Mann transcribed his very exact and reliable memory of our diplomatic relations with England in a kind of diary or resumé of his long and useful as well as honorable diplomatic career, and left the task of editing them to my daughter now deceased ?" We always hoped his son would administer upon his effects and transmit the immensely valuable Mss to us as we should cheerfully have surrendered the profits to him, but he died I believe without making any use of his father?s legacy to the world and I do not know where they could be found, or where to find his wife who may know something about them.? In a postscript, Mrs. Davis adds ?It has occurred to me that if you will write to Col Palfrey of the Louisiana Hist. Soc. he can probably put you in communication with some of Duncan Kenners relations who might find his papers for you. It is worth the trial.?The book Mr. Bigelow wrote was ?France and the Confederate Navy, 1862-1868: An International Episode,? by John Bigelow, published in 1888. He wrote about the construction in France and England of warships for the Confederate Navy, the movement of Confederate ships in European waters, and, in general, Confederate activities in Europe. Lincoln had appointed Bigelow American Consul in Paris in 1861, progressing to Chargé d?Affairs, and, in 1865, U.S. Minister to France, serving until 1866.Ambrose Dudley Mann (1801-1889), John Slidell (1793-1871) and James M. Mason were Confederate Commissioners to Europe. Slidell?s daughter Marie married French nobility becoming the Countess de Saint-Roman. Sent by President Davis, Duncan Kenner (1813-1887) arrived in Paris in early 1865 to approach the governments of England and France with an offer. In exchange for recognition, the Confederacy would abolish slavery. Kenner met with Slidell and Mason. Representatives of the French government informed Kenner that France would accept the deal provided that England would do the same. England refused."

Her grand entrance in THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE SEVEN KINGS (1899) marks the earliest appearance of a female felon in a series of short stories. In ten connected tales Madame Koluchy, as the guiding genius of a sinister secret society, as 'the brain that had conceived and the body that had executed some of the most malignant designs against mankind that the history of the world has ever known,' proves herself 'the compleat criminal': kidnapper, blackmailer, bank robber, and murderer -- although it should be noted that Madame Koluchy's attempts at murder were consistently foiled by a young scientist-detective named Norman Head." - QQ 27.

SUMMARY: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children's novel written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Denslow. Originally published by the George M. Hill Company in Chicago on May 17, 1900, it has since been reprinted numerous times, most often under the name The Wizard of Oz, which is the name of both the popular 1902 Broadway musical and the well-known 1939 film adaptation. The story chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz, after being swept away from her Kansas farm home in a cyclone. The novel is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture and has been widely translated. Its initial success, and the success of the 1902 Broadway musical which Baum adapted from his original story, led to Baum's writing thirteen additional Oz books. BACKGROUND: Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919), better known by his pen name L. Frank Baum, was an American author chiefly known for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work). William Wallace "W. W." Denslow (May 25, 1856 – May 27, 1915) was an American illustrator and caricaturist remembered for his work in collaboration with author L. Frank Baum, especially his illustrations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Denslow was an editorial cartoonist with a strong interest in politics, which has fueled political interpretations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. CONDITION: Condition is Fair/Good.
