      A collection of 15 woodcuts showing various stages of the steel making process. A few tiny holes to the later pages and rear cover, otherwise in excellent order. A striking collection. Scarce. No copy located on Worldcat or COPAC. Viva Talbot (1900-1983) was a talented amateur artist who specialised in wood engraving. She knew many of the prominent wood engravers of the 1920s and 1930s, including Robert Gibbings, from whom she may have had some tuition. Her father, Benjamin Talbot (1864-1947), was the inventor of the Talbot Tilting Furnace which transformed the open hearth method of producing steel. He was involved in iron companies in Middlesbrough and Stockton and hence Viva, unusually for a woman of that era, had access to the steelworks. Viva Talbot married Thomas Nussey in 1941, and within a few years she became Lady Nussey when Thomas inherited a baronetcy from his father. Viva's work remained largely undiscovered until 2006 when Dr Joan Heggie of the University of Teesside came across her steel making woodcuts in the British Steel Collection at the Teesside archives. These works and others by the artist became the subject of an exhibition at the Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough in 2010.

        The Burlington Route Runs Daily Through Trains Between Chicago, Peoria, or St. Louis.

      Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad / Rand, McNally & Co. Chicago. No date. Early 1900s? - Color map, 27 3/4 x 44 inches on sheet 29 x 45 1/2 inches. Was originally issued as a wall map on rollers, which have been removed to have it professionally mounted on linen. Vertical tear across the centre of the map, neatly joined in the main body of the United States, but visible in the lower centre area of ocean, other minor repaired edge tears, toning to edges and light toning to a band along the bottom of the map. Professional restoration has made it an eminently displayable map. There are three attractive engraved vignettes at lower left, showing the interiors of the cars: "Interior View of Pullman Palace Sleeping Car Running on the Burlington Route"; "Interior View of Burlington Route Passenger Chair Car"; "Interior View of Burlington Route Dining Car." The vignettes suggest a late 1800s date for the map. The wall sized map shows the Burlington Route with its extensive connections. An interesting independently issued railroad map.

      (Paris?) N.P. n.d. (ca. 1900). A tradesman's sample album with lovely examples, shown in original photographs, of elaborate passementerie of the sort perfected by the French over the centuries. Here the examples, displayed mostly one to a photograph, are most likely intended as applications to furnishing. Most are tassels with highly complex interweavings of silk or similar threads forming amazing ornamental forms. Some rosettes and braids are also displayed as part of the "guirlande" that would have held the tassels. There are also a few illustrations are of what appear to be tie-backs. The items have stamped stock numbers on the mounting boards; some show this number within the photograph itself. The samples are quite exquisite; not all are shown to advantage by the photographer, but composition and intricacy of execution is evident in all. Oblong post-bound album (27 x 18 cm); 52 original photographs mounted on heavy card stock + 3 loose photographs, two of which are duplicates. Original leather backed album with pebbled boards and metal binding posts; scuffed; small tear at joint between backing and boards on upper cover; mounting card stock most often browned or foxed, but photos usually clean, with some exceptions: first photo soiled, at least six of the photos are quite faded, more from the photographic process, itself, than from exposure within the album; all plates have stamped numbers or, in a few instances, a number placed within the photograph; some plates have penned notes next to the numbers. One of the laid in loose plates is heavily creased. .

The collection includes designs for: 1) An Art Nouveau silver inkstand with lamp. 2) A 5 piece silver writing set. 3) An Art Nouveau floral lamp. 4) An elaborate Rococo Revival lamp with a pink glass shade. 5) A Rococo Revival lamp with a green shade. 6) A pair of Art Nouveau silver picture frames. 7) A trio of Art Nouveau silver picture frames. 8) A Rococo Revival silver bowl.

        Turner & Ruskin

      1900. First Edition . WEDMORE, Frederick, editor. Turner & Ruskin. An Exposition of the Work of Turner from the Writings of Ruskin. London: George Allen, 1900. Two volumes. Folio (11-1/2 by 15 inches), contemporary three-quarter crimson crushed morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. $4800.First edition of this collection of renowned English art critic John Ruskin's writings on contemporary Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner—whom he held up as the ideal landscape painter—with photogravure frontispieces and 89 folio photogravure plates finely reproducing the works by Turner that are the subjects of Ruskin's critical essays. From the collection of Indian Maharaja and cricketer Ranjitsinhji Vibhaji, with his bookplates and owner signatures, very handsomely bound by Birdsall.""Turner raised landscape-painting to an elevation it had never before reachedÂ… He taught artists to look at Nature from his point of view"" (James Dafforne). ""No landscape-painter has equaled Turner in range, in imagination, or sublimity"" (Monkhouse). Renowned English art critic John Ruskin found many of his artistic ideals embodied in the work of J.M.W. Turner, and he devoted many pages of his masterpiece, Modern Painters, to demonstrating just how Turner was able to arrive at the inherent truth of a scene, where other contemporaries (and predecessors) failed. He famously argued that Turner 'is the only painter who has ever drawn a mountain, or a stone' (Modern Painters, Volume III). These two splendid folio volumes bring together Ruskin's writings on Turner, with fine photogravure reproductions of the Turner paintings under discussion. Many of the photogravures are after works from Ruskin's own extensive collection. Bookplate and owner signature (dated 1923) of Ranjitsinhji Vibhaji, English cricketer and Maharaja Jam Sahib of Navanagar from 1907 until his death in 1933. ""Ranjitsinhji's sporting rise was swift, testimony to his mastery of the art of batsmanship. Within five years of first playing seriously [i.e., by 1900], he had become the world's leading batsman and forced a general reappraisal of tactics"" (ODNB). Ranjitsinhji also represented India at the League of Nations later in life.Fine condition. An impressive set.

        Two Large Native American Photographic Portraits

      1900. (RINEHART, Frank A.). Two Large Native American Photographic Portraits. [Omaha: F.A. Rinehart, 1896]. One image measures 12-1/2 by 15-1/2 inches, the other 13 by 16 inches; both mounted on glass and framed together in old wooden frame; entire piece measures 33 by 20-1/2 inches. $15,000.Two splendid large photographic portraits of Native American (Sioux) chiefs—Chief Hollow Horn Bear of the Lakota Sioux, on the left, and Chief Afraid of Eagle, of the Oglala Sioux, who participated in the Battle of Little Bighorn, on the right—by renowned photographer Frank A. Rinehart. Both images are vintage enlarged negatives (internegatives) that would have been used by Rinehart or his studio for producing large prints, and show remarkable detail, clarity, and fine tonal gradation.In 1898 Smithsonian ethnographer James Mooney arranged for the Indian Congress to coincide with the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Omaha so that the delegates could serve as a living ethnographic museum for the Exposition. Photographer Frank A. Rinehart, the Exposition's official photographer, was commissioned to do portraits of some of the 500 Indian delegates, ""many of the most famous Indians of the day. Rinehart and his assistant and successor, George Marsden, made exquisite prints from the negatives of the Indians"" (Mautz, 179). Rinehart's series of stunning photographs constitutes one of the most impressive visual records of Native Americans at the turn of the century.""Hollow Horn Bear (1851-1913), Lakota chief and diplomatÂ… was born in the year the Lakota people signed a treaty of peace with the United States at Fort LaramieÂ… In 1868 another treaty was signed with the United States, which, from the government's point of view, ended hostilities and concentrated the Lakota on a large reservation in present-day South Dakota, with additional hunting territory beyond. From the Lakota standpoint, the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 was a peace treaty that recognized the Lakota as a sovereign nation and guaranteed a perpetual land base that could not be reduced except by cession approved by three-fourths of the adult males of the Lakota nationÂ… Although Hollow Horn Bear recognized the necessity of adapting to the new way of life on the reservations and of living in peace with the U.S. government, he was a strong advocate of Lakota interests. At negotiations regarding remaining tribal lands in the 1890s and the early 1900s, for example, Hollow Horn Bear was repeatedly delegated to speak for his tiospaye and others, to insist that the government could not force land cessions upon the Lakota but must obtain the consent of three-fourths of the men as required by the 1868 treaty. Although he was not able to prevent the government from violating the 1868 treaty because a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1904 legitimated treaty abrogation, Hollow Horn Bear's presence at the negotiations clearly pushed the agreements in the direction of Lakota interests. Without his presence, things would have been much worse for the Lakota peopleÂ… Hollow Horn Bear became a fairly frequent visitor to Washington, D.C., at least by Lakota standards. He attended the inauguration of President Theodore Roosevelt and visited with Presidents William Howard Taft and Benjamin Harrison. In 1913, while ill, he attended the inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson. Hollow Horn Bear died in Washington shortly after the inaugurationÂ… He was memorialized by the U.S. Postal Service in 1922 when it issued a stamp with his image. Hollow Horn Bear was a strong and perceptive leader among the Lakota people during the most traumatic period in their history—the transition from an independent native society to an indigenous nation struggling for survival within an encompassing industrial state. Hollow Horn Bear's skill and wisdom helped the U.S. government to see the point of view of the Lakota people and the Lakota people to see that some of the new ways could help them survive as Lakota"" (ANB). Afraid of Eagle was a Chief of the Oglala people, and he was present at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876, where General Custer met his demise. Bit of spotting and crackling to negatives, chiefly near edges; old wooden frame showing some scratches and wear, exceptionally good condition. Very scarce and desirable.

        Life of Rekhmara

      1900. First Edition . (EGYPT) NEWBERRY, Percy. The Life of Rekhmara. Vezîr of Upper Egypt under Thothmes III and Amenhetep II (circa B.C. 1471-1448). Westminster: Archibald Constable, 1900. Tall quarto, original half brown cloth, tan paper boards. $6800.First edition of preeminent Egyptologist Newberry's pioneering work on his excavation of the Theban Necropolis, praised as certain to ""shed a flood of light on the nature and methods of internal administration under the Pharaohs of the 18th century. Rekhmara was governor of Thebes and vizier of Upper Egypt in the reigns of Thothmes III and Amenhetop II."" This exceptionally important presentation/association copy is inscribed in the year of publication by Newberry to his then assistant, fellow Egyptologist Howard Carter, who would later discover the Tomb of Tutankhamen: ""To my old friend Howard Carter. With the author's sincere respect. 10/12/00"" [with a flourish]. Containing 22 full-page plates, plans and hieroglyphics, including four folding and two double-page, in scarce original boards.Renowned Egyptologist Percy Newberry first traveled to Egypt in the early 1890s, where he ""was placed in charge of the expedition which began work on the famous tombs of Beni Hasan and afterwards on other sitesÂ… Newberry, as a free-lance, carried out a survey of the Theban Necropolis (1895-1901) and later superintended a number of excavations, and advised on many others including those of Howard Carter"" (DNB). Newbury had planned to publish the principal Private Tombs, but the projected series began and ended with The Life of Rekhmara"" (Dawson, Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 36:101) On publication of this influential pioneering work, Newberry was praised for introducing evidence certain to ""shed a flood of light on the nature and methods of internal administration under the Pharaohs of the 18th dynasty. Rekhmara was governor of Thebes and vizier of Upper Egypt in the reigns of Thothmes III and Amenhetop IIÂ… We learn that Rekhmara judged both in civil and criminal cases, that he had to attend to the assessment and payment of taxes, as well as to the levying of troopsÂ… In a group of interesting scenes the occupations of Rekhmara in his position of steward of the Temple of Amen are depicted. As such, he had to superintend all buildings devoted to the god, as well as the revenues that accrued to the god's vast estates. Of about equal importance to that of these documents is a wall-painting representing the receipt of the taxes of Upper EgyptÂ… Such are a few of the results to be gleaned from this important work"" (Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute 30:18). ""The text from the tomb of Rekhmara at ThebesÂ… is one of the best known of Egyptian secular inscriptionsÂ… It was first published in 1900 by Newberry, The Life of Rekhmara, pls. 9 and 10, and his version is still of value"" (Faulkner, Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 41:18). Newberry's translation of the king's instructions to the vezir cites the king exhorting him ""not to be 'mild, but severe in his orders'; not to be partial to the cause of the rich, or to make the slightest distinction between the wealthy and the poor, 'for every man is as every man'"" (34). With 22 full-page plates, plans and hieroglyphics, including four folding and two double-page, along with an in-text map, full-page genealogical table and in-text illustrations. Recipient Howard Carter, a friend and colleague of Newberry, worked alongside Newberry on several key excavations in Egypt, and co-authored with Newberry, Maspero and Davis the seminal 1904 work, The Tomb of Thoutmôsis IV. The discovery of Tuthmosis' tomb led to a period of immensely fruitful excavations, culminating in Carter's 1922 discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen.Text and plates quite fresh, inner paper hinges reinforced, slight edge-wear and a bit of foxing to original boards. A most desirable extremely good presentation copy with a highly memorable association.
