        PHOTO ALBUM WITH PHOTOGRAPHS & PHOTOPRINTS FROM THE SECOND BOER WAR

      - Gloucester Regiment Memorabilia. 1899-1900. Album with original photographs of the Second Boer War, showing the main Boer military commanders, battlefields, artillery, British Army in parade, and everyday life of British prisoners of war in a camp near Pretoria; supplemented with group portraits of the British officers and residents in India. Oblong folio (23x30 cm) with 35 gelatin silver photographs, including 26 larger ones (15x20 cm) and 9 smaller ones (12x18 cm) mounted on 20 stiff card leaves. Photos identified: either signed, dated and captioned in negative, or with typewritten captions mounted underneath. Binding: restored recently in red half morocco using the original cloth boards, leaves with all edges gilt, and with gilt tooled spine and moiré endpapers. Some images slightly faded, but overall an excellent album. Important collection of original photographs of the Second Boer War (October 11th, 1899 - May 31st, 1902). The album was evidently compiled by an officer of the First Battalion of the British Army Gloucester Regiment, which saw active service during the war, in particular during the Battle of Ladysmith (October 30, 1899) and the consequent Siege of Ladysmith (October 3, 1899 - February 28, 1900). The photo collection starts with a collective portrait of the officers of the Gloucester Regiment"s 1st battalion taken in Ladysmith shortly before the war (September 29th, 1899). At the end of the album 7 photos related to the regiment"s early service in India, and include both official and family portraits. In the core of the album it contains a number or portraits of distinguished Boer leaders and military commanders, including Petrus Jacobus Joubert (1834-1900), Lucas Meyer, Louis Botha (1862-1919), Daniel Jacobus Erasmus (1830 - 1913), General Snyman, and Pieter Arnoldus Cronjé (1836-1911). There are 5 important photographs showing 155 mm cannons [Creusot Long Tom field guns] which were used by Boers during several war operations - in this case during the Sieges of Ladysmith and Mafeking. Amongst them one take of a Long Tom being unloaded at a railway station and transported to Ladysmith, another cannon in action, being used by the people of Pieter Arnoldus Cronjé at Mafeking, and others showing the moving of cannons across the river pulled by Boer oxen. Another impressive photo shows Boers at Mafeking posing next to a Maxim-Nordenfelt Gun. There is also a group of sharp collective portraits of different Boer commandos, including that of a "Hollander Corps O.V.S." under command of Russian General Yevgeny Maximov (1849-1904); and the trenches of Boksburg Command at the Battle of Colenso (December, 15 1899). Several photographs of the war areas include a general view of Elandslaagte (after the famous Battle of October, 21 1899), Nicholson"s Kop (one of the grounds of the Battle of Ladysmith), Pretoria Commando Camp at Laingsnek; images of bridges and railways destroyed with dynamite (across Wasbank River and Tugela River) et al. Later photographs show "Raising of British flag in Pretoria" (June, 5th 1900), and a monument to the Gloucester Regiment men fallen at the fight near Rietfontein and the Siege of Ladysmith. There is also a group of good images showing everyday life of British POW in Waterval war camp near Pretoria. Amongst the final photos there are 5 large and 2 small group portraits taken in India in 1897-1898 from the Gloucester Regiment and relatives. Many photos in the album were taken by important local photo studios, both Boer (J. Van Hoepen, Stoel & Groote) and British (Spratt Photo, Barnett & Co). Location/localizacao: 5-1-A-1

        The Writings of Mark Twain, Autograph Edition (25 volumes)

      The American Publishing Company, Hartford, Conn - Complete in 25 volumes. Published from 1899 to 1907, with all but the last five volumes in the first year. Volumes XXIV and XXV were actually published by Harper, though maintaining The American Publishing Company imprint. Limited edition of 512 copies, with 500 being numbered, and 12 lettered copies reserved for the author. This set is letter "B." Volume I is signed "S. L. Clemens / (Mark Twain)," and is also signed at the end of the introductory critical essay by writer Brander Matthews. A Short manuscript letter signed is laid in on Hotel Earlington letterhead addressed to "Bliss" and assumed to be Frank Bliss of The American Publishing Company and the driving force behind the production of this first "Writings." In the letter, Clemens discusses his desire to "present a nice set to Mrs. Clemens brother, Gen. Langhorne." Volume III (A Tramp Abroad, Pt. I), includes an original manuscript leaf in the hand of Clemens and with some corrections, from this title. Volume X (The Gilded Age, Pt. I) is signed in pencil by co-author Chas. [Charles] Dudley Warner, on the limitation page, and includes three original manuscript leaves laid in; two in the hands of Clemens, and one in the hand of Warner. Signed by at least 17 illustrators, including Peter Newell; T. de Thulstrup; Frederick Dielman; E. West Clinedinst; E. H. Garrett; J. G. Brown; Karl Gerhardt; Charles Noel Flagg; E. W. Kemble; F. M. Senior; Frank T. Merrill; Dan Beard; Frank V. DuMond; F. D. Opper; J. Allen St. John; C. D. Weldon; and F. Luis Mora. Original deep burgundy Moroccan leather covers with the first 21 bound and tagged by Haddon & Co. Binders. Although XXII and XXIII are perfectly matched, they do not show the Haddon tag. Volumes XXIV and XXV, are near perfectly matched, though the texture of the leather is slightly pebbled. Raised spine bands divide spines into six compartments. Gilt ruled decoration and lettering, with more elaborate ruling outlining the inside edges of the covers. Top edges are gilded, and others remain un-cut. Most of contents remain un-opened, and that which has been, was done very skillfully. Marbled end leaves. Set title page emblem in each volume designed by Tiffany and Company, and engraved by W. H. W. Bicknel. Lacking plate that is called for adjacent to page 242, "The King," in Volume XVI (A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court), though there is no appearance that this was ever bound in. All other plates are collated and present. This set has been expertly and beautifully restored by Jack Papuchyan of Papuchyan Bindery (H & H Book Services) in Glendale, CA. Volumes I, II, IV, VIII, XI, and XIII have been rebacked, though retain original covers. There is a very slight granular effect to these spine covers. Scattered scuffs, rubs, and other light damage to covers have been repaired. All covers are completely original. All volumes are tight, and save for a couple of very light smudges on the front free end leaf of Volume I, the contents remain in Fine condition. Although the numbered sets are seen occasionally on the market, as of May, 2017, there are no lettered editions available, nor are any lettered editions seen in auction records reviewed for the past 100 years.

        THE CONJURE WOMAN

      1899. [a handsome copy] Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1899. Original brown cloth decorated in black, white and orange. First Edition of this Afro-American writer's first book, a series of seven dialect stories about incidents of slavery, told as reminiscences by an old black gardener. Examples are "Po' Sandy," "Mars Jeem's Nightmare" and "Sis' Becky's Pickaninny." Later in the same year, Chesnutt's biography of Frederick Douglass was also published. Chesnutt, who grew up in Fayetteville NC and ultimately returned there as a school principal, was actually mixed-race: his paternal grandfather was a white slaveholder, and though he claimed to have more white than black ancestry (and could probably have "passed" for white), he identified himself as a black man -- or "colored" in the language of the time.~This is a fine copy (book-sticker of the original bookstore in Brooklyn). Neither in the Blockson catalogue nor in Thornton (though both list the 1900 printing). Pioneer that he was, in recent years Chesnutt has become a very highly-collected author.

      1899. Crayon sur papier Fin XIXème - Début XXème, 21 x 27 cm (31 x 47 cm avec carton). - Crayon sur papier Fin XIXème - Début XXème, 21 x 27 cm (31 x 47 cm avec carton). - Disegno a matita originale, montato su scheda cartone. Firma timbro firma dell'artista nell'angolo in basso a destra del lavoro, e la firma timbro del laboratorio sul retro. Molto bella condizione. Provenienza: studio dell'artista, fa riferimento al catalogo Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny nato nel 1861 e morto a Parigi nel 1932, è un importante pittore francese. Ha iniziato la sua carriera con artisti d'avanguardia come Vincent van Gogh e Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Con Émile Bernard, egli è l'inventore del cloisonnisme. Dal 1884-1893, Louis Anquetin continua ad esplorare nuove opportunità introdotte dal rilascio di Impressionismo in pittura francese. Dal 1893, dopo un lungo confronto con i "vecchi maestri", egli adotta una pittorica pregiudizio che schiererà il movimento artistico in generale, e portare via dai suoi amici. Abbagliato dalla arte barocca e la sua forza creativa, così pensa i suoi amici d'infanzia sono stati coinvolti in un percorso che porta alla morte della pittura. Crede in un "quadro perfetto", che si incarna nelle re-ricordare le lezioni di Michelangelo e Rubens, tra gli altri. Il suo lavoro diventa più convenzionale, ha sostenuto un ritorno al business, offrendo a riflettere sulle condizioni a priori di ogni possibile forma d'arte secondo le regole della prospettiva e dell'anatomia, come praticato dai maestri XVI e XVII secolo. Lasciando solo alcune opere che possono essere descritte come monumentale, Anquetin gira prolifico con i suoi numerosi studi e bozzetti, che ha ritenuto che il progetto è stato "un mezzo molto potente mezzo di espressione" fondamento obbligatoria di tutte le arti plastiche. Lavorare volontariamente il conto alla rovescia del suo tempo, Louis Anquetin reso possibile l'esistenza di una figurazione moderna originale. Con la sua ostinazione e la sua passione per la pittura, ha infatti impedito è completamente chiuso la strada alla grande tradizione occidentale. Si possono ammirare le sue opere in numerosi musei prestigiosi come il Musée d'Orsay e il Louvre di Parigi, San Francisco e Detroit, il Museo dell'Ermitage di San Pietroburgo, la National Gallery e la Tate Londra, ecc.

        THE WIFE OF HIS YOUTH

      1899. and Other Stories of the Color Line. With Illustrations by Clyde O. DeLand. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1899. Original salmon cloth decorated in red. First Edition of Chesnutt's second book -- his second and last collection of short stories, following THE CONJURE WOMAN earlier the same year (a year which also saw his biography of the abolitionist Frederick Douglass published). These nine "stories of the color line" describe the difficult situation for the mixed-race American -- a situation Chesnutt knew well: he was mixed-race, white enough to pass as such, but he chose not to do so (though it is worth noting that in his books, neither Chesnutt nor his publishers revealed his race).~Chesnutt would go on to write just three more books, all novels with the same theme of race relations, ending in 1905 (in which year he was one of the American writers invited, as representing his literary era, to Mark Twain's 70th birthday party). Chesnutt lived until 1932, unfortunately long enough to see his writing relegated to "old-school" and "pandering" status by the Harlem Renaissance; however, beginning in the 1960s he has been hailed for his courage and ability in breaking new ground in his writings about post-Civil War race relations.~The ornate binding design is by "BWT" (so initialed; the TBR Newsletter notes but is unable to identify this artist). This copy is just about fine (very slight sunning of the spine as one would expect with this salmon-colored cloth, but essentially no wear or soil).

        Otto Greiner: Ufer bei Sirmione am Gardasee (Originalzeichnung)

      1899 - Pastellkreiden und Bleistift auf Papier. 32,3 x 23,0 cm. Links unten bezeichnet: „Sirmione Nov. 99“. Verso: Blick von einer Anhöhe über den Gardasee. Provenienz: - Galleria Carlo Virgilio, Rom. BIOGRAFIE: Otto Greiner (1869 Leipzig - 1916 München) Otto Greiner verwendete die Zeichnung nahezu unverändert für den Hintergrund seines Gemäldes „Prometheus“ von 1909 (heute National Gallery of Canada, Toronto) Otto Greiner absolviert zunächst eine Ausbildung zum Lithographen in seiner Heimatstadt Leipzig, bevor er dank eines Stipendiums 1888 an die Kunstakademie nach München geht. Eine dort gezeigte Ausstellung mit Werken Max Klingers wird für ihn zum Schlüsselerlebnis und weckt in ihm den Wunsch, den bereits weit über die Grenzen Deutschlands hinaus bekannten Künstler persönlich kennenzulernen. 1891 sucht er ihn in Rom auf, freundet sich mit ihm an und genießt bald seine Unterstützung. Ihre Verbindung wird von der Kunstkritik oft als Lehrer-Schüler-Verhältnis ausgelegt, eine Deutung, gegen die sich jedoch beide Künstler verwahren. Wie vor ihm die Deutschrömer, so findet auch Greiner in Italien seine zweite Heimat. Seit 1898 lebt er dauerhaft in Rom, übernimmt Klingers ehemaliges Atelier in direkter Nachbarschaft zum Kolosseum und genießt innerhalb der deutschen Künstlerkolonie großes Ansehen. 1915 zwingt ihn indes der Eintritt Italiens in den Ersten Weltkrieg zur Rückkehr nach München, wo er 1916 an den Folgen einer Lungenentzündung stirbt. Obwohl Greiner seiner künstlerischen Veranlagung nach eher Graphiker und Zeichner ist, versucht er sich vor allem auch als Maler zu profilieren. Seine monumentalen Gemälde greifen meist mythologische Sujets auf und zeigen vornehmlich Akte in südlicher Landschaft (z.B. „Odysseus und die Sirenen“ (ehemals Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig), „Herkules bei Omphale“ (Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart) oder „Prometheus“ (National Gallery of Canada, Toronto)). Unzählige Studien in Feder, Kohle, Rötel, Gouache und Farbstift bezeugen nicht nur ungemeine Akribie bei der Vorbereitung, Aneignung und Bewältigung der Bildmotive, sondern auch stupendes handwerkliches Können und wohlüberlegten Einsatz zeichnerischer Mittel. Wie kaum ein zweiter Künstler seiner Zeit findet Greiner daran Gefallen, den menschlichen Körper in kompliziertesten Ansichten darzustellen, weshalb in seinen vortrefflichen Bildnis- und Aktzeichnungen die Essenz seines Künstlertums gesehen werden kann.

Beautifully bound by H. Philippe.“In 1896 and again in 1897, Montmartre BohemiansÂ… organized the Fête de la Vache Enragée, a festival which parodied the traditional Fête du Boeuf Gras associated with Mardi Gras festivities. Instead of celebrating the fatted calf, a symbol of plenty, the Fête de la Vacche Enragée was dedicated to the poorÂ… For the festivities, [participants] organized a dancing parade through Montmartre, which they dubbed ‘La Vachalcade” (Venita Datta). Journalist Georges Montorgueil devotes a large portion of La Vie à Montmartre to the poor, the Fête, the dance, and “la veilleuse de nuit.” Vidal captures MontmartreÂ’s architecture, daily life, religion, politics, the art world, music, dancing, cabarets, and nightlife. Text in French. Original illustrated paper wrappers, featuring La Vachalcade, bound in. Fine condition, beautifully bound.

        The Free Harbor Contest at Los Angeles, An Account of the Long Fight Waged by the People of Southern California to Secure a Harbor Located at a Point Open to Competition

      Los Angeles: Kingsley-Barnes & Neuner, 1899. First Edition. 8vo, pp. 211, [1], illustrated with photographic views and portraits, 5 maps (one double-page). Decorated green cloth with some soiling and insect damage, a few pages with short tears to the upper margin, but overall very good. Cowan p. 684. Willard (1866-1914) was a Los Angeles booster who began his career as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, became secretary of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce in 1891, and started the magazine The Land of Sunshine in 1894. Here he provides a detailed account of the legal battles over the location of the Port of Los Angeles, which set city officials against the financial might of Collis Huntington and the Southern Pacific Railroad. "Huntington built a long wharf in Santa Monica to compete with the existing facilities at San Pedro. He then from 1890 attempted to obtain federal funds to improve the Santa Monica port, and impose a monopoly, at the expense of the San Pedro port. Los Angeles took Huntington to court over the issue. The Chamber won and made Los Angeles a "free" harbor, independent of the influence of the Southern Pacific Railroad" (Wiki). Dawson 80:. #77: ''The Free Harbor Contest is an important book on two levels; first, it outlines the history of the harbor critical to the financial development of Los Angeles and the Southern California region, and second, it documents a classic struggle between the interests of the people of Southern California versus the monopolistic power of a large corporation.''.
