        The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine - Vol. LX : New Series Vol. XXXVIII, May-Oct. 1900 (Increasing Human Energy by Nikola Tesla)

      New York / London: The Century Co. / Macmillan & Co., Ltd, 1900. Hardcover. Good. The first publication of Nikola Tesla's photographically illustrated work "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, With Special Reference to the Harnessing of the Sun's Energy" and with "Illustrated by the Writer's Electrical Experiments, Now First Published" stated both immediately under his name at head of title and in the table of contents. Three-quarter leather with brown cloth over boards, large 8vo (9-5/16 inches tall), pp. viii (index to Vol. LX), 960, 86 (ads), illustrated throughout. Six consecutive issues, all bound with front covers - but lacking back covers and terminal ads from all except the final issue. Volume leather dry and worn, joints completely cracked, both hinges stregthened with an archival linen repair, light ex-library with a library rubber stamp to foot of text block edge, front pastedown and "withdrawal" stamp to ffep, text block slightly toned, marginally trimmed with an occasional soil spot or repaired tear noted. Both the Tesla article and it's front cover (Vol. XL No. 2) are clean and unmarked. An important and long essay by Tesla, who presents here (pp. 175-211) the first practical telautomation, many new energy-related experiments and muses "The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes with the poet..." - most certainly an uncommon genius, within an uncommon man.

        STEEL MAKING WOODCUTS

      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.

        Scrapbook compiled by members of the Vivian family throughout the 19th century.

      - n.p. c1800-1900. Solid folio (48x30cm) half calf (rebacked); some 120 leaves of blue paper packed both sides with ephemera, prints and news clipping, and many extra inserts. It won't take as long to go through this as it took the two or three or four generations of Vivians to compile it but still, it'll take a while. A cavalcade of the 19th century as lived by the privileged. On the first page are tickets for prestigious seats at the coronation of George IV - more elaborately produced as security against forgery than a banknote it looks to me. On the last page are programmes and menus for the 1902 South African dinner of the 3rd Scots Guards and the catalogue of the band's instruments sold by auction at the end of the dinner. In between, the adventures, pre-occupations and fancies of the Vivians. There were plenty of Vivians, well to do Vivians, and more than one George - the name that reappears on European travel ephemera in the 1820s and 30s - but the places and dates defy coincidence and let us identify George as George Vivian 1798-1873 of Claverton Manor, painter and artist of luxurious books of views of Portugal, Spain and Italy, member of the Society of Dilettanti, and big-wig in the English art world - he was one of the commissioners for the new parliament. I took photos of some early pages and stopped before it got out of hand. In those pages you can see: the tickets to George's coronation; one of three quarto size broadsides printed in Hyde Park during the peace celebrations in 1814; a mock 1823 banknote issued by Self & Co. of Threadneedle Street promising to give the most superior haircut in Europe or forfeit one hundred pounds; an 1823 Florentine theatre bill; a folio four page catalogue in French and English of goods sold by Couture, perfumer and liquorist of Florence; a Spanish bill for a Donizetti opera and a Catalan diligence ticket from the 1830s; an 'extraordinary gazette' from Madrid announcing the death of Ferdinand, a handbill for Donizetti's Anna Boleyn and a broadside sonnet to Queen Isabel II; a collection of illustrious continental visiting guards that surprised me with the variety and sophistication of printing and card stock; the first part of a long broadside programme for Victoria's coronation - the rest on the following two pages, followed by the similar programme for the wedding of Victoria and Albert; a large 1836 bill of fare for a Berlin restaurant - sorry, wrong page, a bill of fare for a French restaurant facing a papal certificate for a relic and a sketch of a masquarede parade; some English visiting cards, a group invitation from Vivian, Lord Sandwich, Mr Hope and Lord Redesdale to The Stadium at Cremorne House (this was de Berenger's sporting club - see The Morning Post, July 16 1836, for an account of the splendid fete champetre), an invitation to privately view Strawberry Hill and a sketch of a woman; a large 1835 ticket of residence for St Petersburg.

        PHOTOGRAPHIC SAMPLE ALBUM OF PASSEMENTERIE.

      (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. .

Zij is noodzakelijk aan alle huismoeders. De Milanaise zuivert, versterkt en verschoont het haar der kinderen en der groote menschen. Zij is zonder nadeel en zonder het minste gevaar. De Milanaise geeft buigzaamheid, glans en schoonheid aan het haar en belet het haar der jonge meisjes te breken.?'Albert Émile Artigue (1850-1927) was schilder, graveur en lithograaf.

        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.
