        Hand Tinted Photograph [Tintype]

      1900 - Full plate tintype photograph (7 1/4" X 10") of William and (his wife) Susannah Carney, the Sergeant wearing his Medal of Honor. Scratched on the back: "Sgt. Wm. Carney, 54th Mass. Vols. 1900" (the date might be 1901). Left side corners clipped, flaking of the emulsion around, and to, his right leg and shoes, surface craquelure, the tin wavy, else very good condition, the image fantastic. Rare. The Emancipation Proclamation (Jan. 1, 1863) officially authorized recruiting black soldiers for the first time in the Civil War, so in March, William Harvey Carney joined the, all black, 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, commanded by 26 year-old Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. Because of Carney's education and leadership skills (he had studied to be a Preacher) he quickly rose to the rank of Sergeant. In July, the 54th Massachusetts was sent to James Island, South Carolina, where, on July 18, Shaw offered to lead the charge against Fort Wagner (the attack on Fort Wagner was depicted in the film Glory). During the battle Shaw and his flag bearer were pinned down beneath the parapet of the fort. Trying to rally his men forward, Shaw and the flag bearer fell, both mortally wounded. In that moment, Carney became both sides of his African-American hyphen. He seized the colors, prevented the flag from touching the ground, struggled up the parapet and, though wounded in the legs, chest, and arm, planted the colors at the top of the rampart. Despite his wounds and the heavy gunfire around him, Carney was able to keep the flag aloft, though he, and the rest of the 54th Massachusetts, remained pinned down until reinforcements arrived and the shredded unit was able to withdraw. Struggling back to Union lines while still carrying the colors, Carney collapsed saying: "Boys, the old flag never touched the ground." He spent the next 11 months recuperating, but was never fit again, and because of his wounds, he received an honorable disability discharge in June, 1864. Carney's Medal of Honor citation reads: "When the color sergeant was shot down, this soldier grasped the flag, led the way to the parapet, and planted the colors thereon. When the troops fell back he brought off the flag, under a fierce fire in which he was twice severely wounded." Most Civil War Congressional Medals of Honor were awarded decades after the action, and some African-Americans received theirs before Carney, but his was for the earliest battle and he is unanimously acclaimed (Google away) as, "the first African-American Medal of Honor winner." The National Archives puts it plainly: "Sergeant William Carney of New Bedford, MA, became the first African-American awarded the Medal of Honor for most distinguished gallantry in action?" And Historynet states it just as clearly: "William H. Carney, transcended good to become great, and was the first black U. S. soldier to earn the Medal of Honor.".

        Versi., , .

      , - Mm. 200 x 150, cc. 104 (pagine numerate, alcune cassate e altre ritagliate dall'Autore verosimilmente nell'ottica della definizione di un'uscita a stampa. Dall'indice delle poesie posto in fine non risulta alcuna mancanza di testo). Al frontespizio compare la seguente dedica: "Alla gentile Signorina Emilia Galateo perché non abbia ad affaticarsi nel ricordar cose, degne forse d'esser pietosamente dimenticate. Pisa 1900. Versi. Ugo Ghiron". Grafia chiara e perfettamente leggibile. Legatura coeva in mezza tela con titolo ms. su etichetta al piatto anteriore, tagli rossi. Segni del tempo alla legatura. Nel complesso ben conservato. Ugo Ghiron (1876-1952) nacque a Roma e lì fece i suoi studi ginnasiali, trasferendosi poi con la famiglia a Pisa, dove compì gli studi liceali e universitari, laureandosi in lettere. Pisa era all'epoca un centro intellettuale molto vivo, ricco di fermenti culturali e di cenacoli di giovani talenti; Ghiron, che aveva presto manifestato la sua vocazione poetica, si dimostrò, però, sin dall'inizio, autore solitario e appartato, estraneo alle poetiche più moderne. Nel 1908 pubblicò presso la casa editrice Bemporad di Firenze, la prima raccolta di liriche, Vita, con una calorosa prefazione - in forma di lettera all'editore - di G. Mazzoni. In seguito pubblicò vari volumi di versi (Le rime della notte, 1913; Le visioni di Atropos, tq20; Gli aquilotti e le rondini, 1923; Tristezze, 1925), ispirati a un vivo senso di bontà e di giustizia, dei quali trascelse il meglio nel volume Poesie (1932). Scrisse anche apprezzati libri per ragazzi: Dolci canzoni, Palermo 1915; Piccoli canti, Torino 1921; Sussurri, ivi 1921; Il libro dei piccoli, Palermo 1923. Questa interessantissima raccolta di versi verosimilmente inediti fu realizzata proprio a Pisa al termine degli studi universitario. Di seguito i titoli delle 24 poesie: Tempesta, Per monaca, Invito notturno, Chiesa fiorentina, Spagnuola, Vecchio castello, A un mandarino cinese in porcellana, Alba, Partenza, Avamposti, Mons gloriae, S. Maria della spina, All'amico di Sarzana, Il poesta e la poesia, Cristianesimo, All'autore di un sonetto di quindici versi, Nostalgia, In memoria di mia sorella, Saluto Valdostano, Io temo, Desiderio, Piazza de' Cavalieri, Rimorso, Fantasia satanica.

        Salvage Operations. The Floating of H.M. Battleship "Howe

      London: J.D. Potter, , 1900. Octavo. Original moderate brown diagonally combed cloth, title gilt to the front board, panels with elaborate scrolled foliate corner-pieces in blind to both boards, brilliant yellow surface-paper endpapers. Half-tone frontispiece and 7 other similar plates, 14 plans and sketches, 5 of them folding. Just a little rubbed, head and tail of the spine a touch crumpled, some foxing to the bound in plans on plain paper, but overall a very good copy indeed. First edition, uncommon just 7 locations on Copac The Admiral-class battleship HMS Howe was commissioned in 1889 and joined the Channel Fleet a year later. On 2 November 1892, due to faulty Admiralty charts, Howe ran aground on the Pereiro Shoal off Bispon Point while attempting to enter Ferrol harbour, Spain. Salvage operations were extremely complex, but with exemplary skill the feat was finally completed on 30 March 1893. The book describes in close detail the procedures carried out by the designated salvage squadron under the command of Rear-Admiral Edward Hobart Seymour, R.N., second-in-command of the Channel Fleet. The author who was Flag Captain aboard Seymour's flagship, HMS Anson, describes the initial incident, the arrival of the salvage steamers, the various methods employed to stop the leaks, several unsuccessful attempts to pump out the ship, the eventual improvement in buoyancy and the employment of collision mats, each of the four attempts to haul Howe into deeper water the last finally meeting with success, the docking of the battleship for temporary repair, and finally her safe return to England. The ship was paid off and sent to Chatham for repairs at a total cost of £45,000. She emerged from the dockyard in October that year and joined the Mediterranean Fleet where she remained until December 1896 when she became the flagship at Queenstown. She went into reserve in 1904, was sold in 1910, and broken up in 1912.

      - Daems & Vandewiele, p. 59 (1 copy); VKlaversma & Hannema 1178; STCN (same copy as Daems, lacking frontispiece); WorldCat (2 copies, including that in Daems). Very rare sixth edition of a Dutch translation of the 1636 Amsterdam Pharmacopoea. Unlike the original Latin edition, the Dutch translation not only lists ingredients, but also provides recipes to prepare the medicines. The numbers for quantities, as the publisher notes in the foreword, are spelled out to avoid any (potentially fatal) problems arising from typesetting errors.The original Latin Pharmacopoea Amstelredamensis, the first Dutch pharmacopoeia, with recipes for nearly 200 medicines, was compiled anonymously by Nicolaes Tulp (1593-1674) by order of the city of Amsterdam, to serve as an official legal standard for the correct preparation of numerous medicines. Several cities in the southern Low Countries and Germany, and even London, had produced pharmacopoeias before any Dutch city and Tulp based his on those published in Augsburg, Cologne and London.With a few contemporary annotations in the margins and the bookplate and stamp of Rimerius Gerardus Posthumus on the flyleaves. Some browning and spotting, still a sound and complete copy of a rare book.

Reliure de l'époque demi-maroquin rouge à coins, dos à nerfs, relié sur brochure (non rogné). Les couvertures en couleurs sont toutes conservées en parfait état. La reliure a été exécutée sur un exemplaire broché qui était neuf. Jolies reliures très fraîches. A noter quelques très légères retouches à quelques coins (à peine visible). Intérieur parfait, sans aucune rousseur, y compris en ce qui concerne les suites sur papier de Chine. Tirage de tête à 50 exemplaires sur papier vélin de cuve contenant une suite complète des fumés tirés sur Chine. Bien complet de toutes les couvertures requises ainsi que du frontispice à l'eau-forte en couleurs livré aux abonnés (relié en tête du premier volume). L'illustration est profuse, en noir dans le texte et en couleurs hors-texte. Avec 8 grandes planches dépliantes coloriées au pochoir, de très nombreuses vignettes tirées en noir ou en vert d'eau. Cette très jolie revue éphémère, qui ne dura qu'une seule année, de janvier 1900 à janvier 1901, est consacrée aux fêtes, aux bals (Quat'zarts, Internat, etc.), carnavals de Nice, etc. L'ensemble est richement illustré de 400 compositions par Louis Morin. Louis Morin (1855-1938) est un artiste connu pour ses caricatures et ses illustrations le plus souvent gaies et remplies d'humour. On peut par certains côtés rapprocher son trait satirique de celui d'Albert Robida ou d'Adolphe Willette, ses contemporains. Il fonde la Société des dessinateurs humoristes en 1904. Il illustra également quelques livres. Il avait son atelier parisien rue Lepic. Il fut l'un des grands illustrateurs du Montmartre 1900. "Cette revue ne sera ni pessimiste, ni réaliste, ni grave, comme la plupart de ses consœurs. L’art n’est-il pas un jeu, le jeu des bons esprits, qu’il faut ranger au nombre des choses pas bien sérieuses dont parle Renan ? La fantaisiste revue des Quat-Saisons tâchera d’y jouer légèrement, pour le passe-temps des gens décidés d’y jouer légèrement, pour le passe-temps des gens décidés à lutter contre le spleen qui nous envahit,et à arrêter le moins possible leur pensée sur les misères de la vie laide que nous font les lois, les préjugés, les modes et le snobisme" (Louis Morin). Référence : Carteret IV, 294. Provenance : Ex libris gravé Henri Lafond (1894-1963) présent dans chaque volume. La bibliothèque Henri Lafond a a été dispersée (12 juin 2015) après plus de 50 années d'endormissement. Les exemplaires n'ayant pas bougé pendant cette longue période.

        Album photographique - Souvenir de la campagne de Chine 14 août 1900 - 18 septembre 1901

      Exceptional album gathering a total of 57 original photographs in prints and argentic contemporary vintage. These photographs were made between 1900 and 1901 by the military doctor Henry Coullaud (1872-1954).Contemporary binding in half blue percaline with corners, smooth back mute, plates of flowery paper, a red label presenting Chinese ideograms was laminated on the first board.The Chinese calligraphy on this label, as explained by Professor Denis Coullaud, is the name of the doctor: "" In Kou-Lou, the wonderful hand that makes the spring ". Thus one could translate a Chinese inscription whose characters stood out in black on the crimson background of a narrow vertical banner. It was called a "pagan". On a beautiful spring morning of the year 1900, this present was brought in great pomp, preceded by a nasal music of a clarinet, accompanied by the small sound of a small flute, and rhythmic tambourine. The Wang family, whose patriarch had successfully operated on the cataract, thanked the physician-major Coullaud. The Chinese had translated its name by phonetic approximation, drawing the two characters "kou" and "lou". (In Pr. Denis Coullaud, The Wonderful Hand That Makes Spring , 1992).Each photograph was annotated (place and legend) by the photographer who also wrote a dedication on the back of the title page of the first album: "To my sister, loving memory of his brother Henry, Bordeaux October 25, 1901".A young military doctor weary of garrison life in the metropolis and dreaming of adventure, Henry Coullaud asked the Ministry to leave for the Chinese Campaign. His request accepted, he embarked on August 19, 1900 on the Alexander III in the 1st battalion of the Regiment of Foot infantry.The beginning of the album contains photographs of the crew of the Alexander III. Several shots then represent the stopovers made by the crew: Port-Saïd, Djibouti, Singapore and finally the harbor of Ta-Kou reached forty-two days after the departure of Marseille. This first part, concerning the actual crossing, consists essentially of port photographs and several photographs representing the Djiboutian population. It is a precious testimony to the beginning of the development of the then capital city of the French Somali Coast.A second part concerns the different Chinese cities in which Dr. Coullaud practiced: Tong-Kou, Tien-Tsin, Pao-Ting-Fou, Ting-Tcheou (Tin-Tjô), Cheng-Feng, Sou-Kiao, Si-Gnan -Shien and Tai-To. His photographs, of a raw realism, offer us a vast panorama of the life in China, at the same time of Sino-French relations but also of the urban and rural life of the natives. It includes the official activities of the French delegation: scenic tours, artistic performances organized (theater, parade acrobats or Chinese orchestra overflowing with French flags on the occasion of July 14), military journals and official photographs mixing senior dignitaries Chinese and French graduates, etc. Some clichés also depict the impartiality of the judicial machine in the midst of the Boxers' revolt: Chinese police in archaic uniform, insurgent heads exposed in cages in the public square, but also fivefold capital execution.The amateur photographer also gives pride of place to historical monuments, realizing views of cities, pagodas, towers, gates and other walls. But what seems to fascinate the young doctor above all else is the life of the street. We note several shots of women with tiny feet bandaged, a few years before the prohibition of this millennial erotic mutilation. Coullaud also immortalises the daily life of the little people, through country scenes and small trades (barbers, washing machines ...), but also those of notables and even mandarins solemn poses.Through this unique album, important testimony to ethnological value, Major Henry Coullaud gives us an overall view of Chinese life at the turn of the twentieth century.14 août 1900 - 18 septembre 1901 Album : 24x19cm, photographies : formats divers 1 album relié

        [Photo Album]: S.S. Bremen, Paris and London

      Paris, London, 1900. Good. Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 11". String-tied olive cloth over paper boards with "Paris 1907 London" printed on the front board. Contains 51 sepia toned gelatin silver photographs with some captions measuring between 2" x 3" and 4.5" x 6.5" affixed to stiff black paper. A good album with loose pages, toning, and lifting cloth with near fine photographs.A photo album kept of a transatlantic journey on the German vessel S.S. Bremen which made stops in Paris and London before returning to the United States in 1905. The vessel built in 1896 was part of the Hamburg America Line and used the same route as the Titanic would a few years later. The album shows many of the crew and passengers posing around the ship with photos of crew members lounging and reading on the upper deck, crew members posing with a woman, and other vessels they passed on the water. Once in Paris the photographs show the streets and crowds of the city. Roughly ten photos show the group at a horse race presumably the Paris Grand Prix at Longchamp with photos of the stands and the crowd in beautiful dresses, huge feathered hats, and men in tuxes. Created by the Societe d'Encouragement in 1863, the Paris Grand Prix was the leading "flat race" showcasing the "best home-bred three-year-olds" until it was surpassed in 1920 when the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe began. After Paris the company stopped in London shown here in photographs of cobblestone streets and busy town centers before returning to the Bremen and returning home. It is assumed that the photo album was put together later than the trip as the book reads "1907" while the few captions that are present read "1905."An interesting look at sea travel and upper middle class events during the early 1900s.
