         Contadina.

      1900 - Alcide Davide Campestrini nacque a Trento nel 1863 e morì a Milano nel 1940. Frequentò l’Accademia di Brera ed ivi fu insegnante. Nato a Trento nel 1863 fin dall’infanzia manifesta spiccate attitudini per la pittura. Dopo aver frequentato la scuola di disegno nella città natale si trasferisce a Milano, dove frequenta l’Accademia di Brera. Fu allievo di Raffaele Casnedi, Francesco e Ambrogio Borghi, ma suo maestro elettivo e grande ammiratore, oltreché amico, fu Giuseppe Bertini. A solo 24 anni ottenne la nomina a professore della R. Scuola d’arte applicata all’industria del Castello Sforzesco. Alla cattedra accede dopo alterne vicende. Campestrini, infatti era fuoriuscito nel 1881 dal Trentino a causa della sua renitenza alla leva nell’esercito austriaco; questo episodio venne risolto grazie all’intervento del marchese Emilio Visconti Venosa, garibaldino, all’epoca presidente dell’Accademia di Brera, che fece concedere a Campestrini il permesso di ritornare nella terra d’origine. Ma la sua città d’elezione fu sempre Milano, dove la sua attività coglieva i maggiori successi e dove partecipò alle più importanti esposizioni. Nel 1894 fu nominato socio onorario dell’Accademia di Brera, dove teneva pure il corso di figura. Oltre che ritrattista e paesaggista, il Campestrini si meritò gran fama nella pittura storica e nella decorazione di ville, palazzi di cui ricordiamo quella del Teatro Sociale di Trento. Firmato al verso, segni di restauro, si vende in cornice.\r Formato: Olio su tela di cm 33x44. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

         Ten Little Niggers

      Bo-Peep Series 1900 - 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. An uncommon edition of this classic racist nursery rhyme. Complete with twelve colorful lithographs (one double-page) along with music and lyrics. Old, neatly done, thread and paper reinforcement to the spine. Minor wear and light soiling; faint dampstain at the top margin of several leaves The song was originally written in 1868 by Septimus Winner as a minstrel number, titled "Ten Little Injuns." A year later, Frank Green re-wrote the lyrics as "Ten Little Niggers," in which a number of "nigger boys" meet unusual, violent deaths, one-by-one. In 1875, the McLoughlin Brothers first published Green's version as a children's book, and the song became a very popular nursery rhyme. In 1894, McLoughlin revised the lyrics so that rather than dying, the last "nigger boy" grows up, marries, and lives a happy life with his wife. (see Anderson, "Ten Little Niggers: The Making of a Black Man's Consciousness.") This edition of the rhyme includes the revised lyrics with illustrations of the marriage and the happy couple. Rather scarce; as of 2016, OCLC shows no copies of this edition held by institutions, ABPC and Rare Book Hub show no auction records, there is one copy for sale in the trade.

         THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD OR UNDER THE TYRANNY

      London: Lawrence and Bullen, Ltd., 1900.. Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii] viii [1] 2-293 [294: printer's imprint] + 24-page publisher's catalogue dated "Spring Season, 1899" inserted at rear, original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, edges untrimmed. First edition. A science fiction novel in which the protagonist, Gerald Pierce de Lacy, is sent three hundred years into the future by occult means. The world of 2174 is an authoritarian dystopia ruled by the Chinese who possess weapons of mass destruction (including something that might be a disintegrating ray) and a huge fleet of flap-winged airships of great speed and power. The Chinese empire is attacked by rebel forces based in Antarctica, the hidden headquarters of their leader, England's King Arthur. The insurgents are soundly defeated and the king is killed in a battle fought with fantastic weapons. "Yet this nominal victory for the Chinese marks the beginning of the downfall of their empire, for the rest of the world rises in rebellion. The English fleet destroys the Chinese capital, and eventually the empire falls ... [Lenore, King Alfred's daughter becomes] Queen of England, or, as the book title has it, Queen of the World. De Lacy would be Lenore's consort, but he is snatched back to the nineteenth century ... A curious work. Similar to the work of George Griffith, but superior in many ways. It is hack work done by a good writer who has dashed off a thriller hastily without worrying about loose ends, inconsistencies, or clarity." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1607.

         THE FOX-WOMAN ..

      Philadelphia & London: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1900.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-308 [309-320: ads], frontispiece with illustration by Virginia H. Davisson, title page printed in red and black, original pictorial white cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and purple, rear panel stamped in red (binding signed "H"), t.e.g., other edges untrimmed. First edition. A presentation copy with initialed inscription by Long on the front free endpaper: "Das heist vergiss-mein-nich" (This means forget-me-not). Exotic romance of Americans in Japan; the title character is a beautiful but heartless femme fatale associated with the Fox Woman legend referred to as the "vampire-girl" - in short, the flame-haired variant of the vamp. No transformations; but Japanese victim succumbs to atavism under her fascination, has "a lust for warm and flowing blood," biting his prey. An evil dwarf features prominently in the story. Part sensational romance, part serious study of cultural conflicts, art vs. life, and the nature and destiny of souls. The author is best known for his short story "Madame Butterfly," dramatized in collaboration with David Belasco, later made into the famous opera by Puccini. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Not in Reginald (1978). Wright (III) 3388. Stamping on spine panel faded, mild dust soiling to rear panel, a very good copy. A very nice copy of a rare vampire novel. (#136802)

         Sketchbook with 45 scenes, mostly landscapes and views, mostly rendered with color pencils

      1900. Cloth Binder. Very Good. Lovely country landscapes, panaromas and cottages drawn by a sure hand with a real Impressionistic panache. N.d., circa 1900, based on the kind of album binder used. 4to. 27 by 19 cm. Most of the illustrations are done directly on the paper in the album, with some loose or attached via slits in the backing paper. And the vast majority are most of the page or one to a page, with a few pages with two illustrations. Place captions or short titles abound, although they are not always fully readable. There are mountain views, bridges, rivers, lakes, churches, gardens, streams, forests, groves, winter and summer views, and unnumerable cottages. There are also drawings of a few bouquets and flowers, and four drawings of butterflies. Finally, there is a black and white drawing of sailboats. A particular effective technique was Atkinson's use of a black pencil to provide an almost painterly sheen as well as provide some depth and motion. Wear to the cloth cover.

The photographs are all in nice shape, some with a little light scuffing. The album has some minor wear. One of the photographs clearly shows a sign for the Hagemeister Brewing Company, a pre-prohibition Green Bay brewery established in 1890. 27 of the photos show men and boys hunting with rifles and dogs. Three show two men logrolling. The other photographs show houses, a lake, children with deer, dogs, family members, flowering bushes, horse-drawn buggies or carts, and the building with the Hagemeister sign.

      [Mexico City, 1900. 124 silver gelatin photographs, each 3 1/4 x 4 1/4. Oblong octavo. Black cloth album, slightly rubbed and scratched, bookseller's label on rear pastedown. Photos mounted directly to black card stock, with tissue guards. A few photos lightly faded or with slight mirroring, but mostly sharp, clean images. Very good. A lively and well-composed vernacular photograph album containing over one hundred twenty pictures of Mexico City and the surrounding areas. Evidently from an early 20th-century American vacation, the album depicts a wide variety of street scenes, landscapes, architecture, and events. The photographer's recorded journey begins outside Mexico City in a small town, and the album contains several of the local buildings, including a restaurant, some religious edifices, and the railroad station, where the traveling party's train awaits. An image of Mexico City from the hills above announces their arrival, and there are a myriad of busy street scenes, including outdoor markets, restaurants and storefronts. There are also photos of the city landmarks, such as the Cuauhtémoc statue, the Paseo de la Reforma, the Caballito monument, Zocalo, the Catholic cathedral and other religious buildings. Further photos show gardens, street trams, hotels and other architecture. The group attends a bullfight, of which there are a series of photographs, and travels out to the canal district, Xochimilco. In the final section of the album the party has traveled back out into the nearby countryside, and there are photos of the train journey, town architecture, and gardens, as well as a view of the volcano Popocatépetl. A cohesive and engaging photograph album, showing Mexico City and the vicinity at the turn of the 20th century.

         THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD OR UNDER THE TYRANNY.

      London: Lawrence and Bullen, Ltd.,. 1900. original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, edges untrimmed.. Offsetting to free endpapers with the upper right corner of the front. free endpaper clipped, former owner's label pasted to front free. endpaper (dated 1899), corners a little soft, spine a little faded,. mild soiling to edges, a very good or somewhat better copy. A scarce. book. (#139159). First edition. A science fiction novel in which the protagonist, Gerald Pierce de Lacy, is sent three hundred years into the future by occult means. The world of 2174 is an authoritarian dystopia ruled by the Chinese who possess weapons of mass destruction (including something that might be a disintegrating ray) and a huge fleet of flap-winged airships of great speed and power. The Chinese empire is attacked by rebel forces based in Antarctica, the hidden headquarters of their leader, England's King Arthur. The insurgents are soundly defeated and the king is killed in a battle fought with fantastic weapons. "Yet this nominal victory for the Chinese marks the beginning of the downfall of their empire, for the rest of the world rises in rebellion. The English fleet destroys the Chinese capital, and eventually the empire falls ... [Lenore, King Alfred's daughter becomes] Queen of England, or, as the book title has it, Queen of the World. De Lacy would be Lenore's consort, but he is snatched back to the nineteenth century ... A curious work. Similar to the work of George Griffith, but superior in many ways. It is hack work done by a good writer who has dashed off a thriller hastily without worrying about loose ends, inconsistencies, or clarity." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1607.
