      - 14 août 1900 - 18 septembre 1901 , Album : 24x19cm, photographies : formats divers, 1 album relié. - album eccezionale con un totale di 57 fotografie originali sulle stampe all'albumina e argento antico. Queste fotografie sono state scattate tra il 1900 e il 1901 dal medico di Henry Coullaud (1872-1954). Il legame del tempo a metà per angoli calico blu, indietro liscia muto, piatti fioriti carta, un'etichetta rossa con i caratteri cinesi è stato laminato sul primo piatto. calligrafia cinese su questa etichetta, come ha spiegato il professor Denis Coullaud figura il nome del medico: "" A Ku-Lou, meravigliosa mano che rende la primavera ". Così si potrebbe tradurre una scritta cinese i cui personaggi spiccava nero contro il fondo cremisi di un banner verticale stretta. E 'stato chiamato un "pai-pien". In una bella mattina di primavera nel 1900, che questo è stato portato in pompa magna, preceduta da una musica twangy un clarinetto, è stato accompagnato sul suo grandine un ottavino, e ha dato tamburello ritmo. La famiglia Wang, il cui patriarca era stato operato con successo per la cataratta, e ha ringraziato il personale medico Coullaud. I cinesi avevano tradotto il suo nome per approssimazione fonetica disegnando i due personaggi "Ku" e "Lou". "(In Pr. Denis Coullaud, La mano rende meravigliosa primavera 1992). Ogni istantanea è stato annotato (luogo e leggenda) del fotografo che ha anche scritto una dedica sul retro della pagina titolo del primo album, "A mia sorella, affettuoso ricordo di suo fratello Henry, Bordeaux 25 Ottobre 1901". Giovane medico militare stanco della vita di guarnigione in Francia e il sogno di avventura, Henry Coullaud ha chiesto al Ministero di partire per il Paese della Cina. La sua richiesta concesso, ha intrapreso 19 agosto 1900 Alessandro III nel 1 ° battaglione del reggimento di fanteria de Marche. L'inizio dell'album contiene fotografie dell'equipaggio del Alexander III. Diversi colpi poi rappresentano le fermate effettuate dall'equipaggio: Port Said, Gibuti, Singapore e infine il porto di Ta Kou raggiunto quarantadue giorni dopo la partenza di Marsiglia. Questa prima parte, riguardante l'attraversamento stessa, è costituito principalmente da porto fotografie e diversi colpi che rappresentano la popolazione Gibuti. Si tratta di una preziosa testimonianza circa la precoce sviluppo della città allora capitale del Somaliland francese. Una seconda parte riguarda le diverse città cinesi in cui il Dr. Coullaud esercitata: Tong-Ku, Tientsin, Pao-Ting-Fou, Ting Chou (Tin-tjo), Cheng-Feng Su-Kiao, Si-Gnan -Shien e Tai-To. Le sue fotografie, un crudo realismo, ci offrono un vasto panorama della vita in Cina, sia delle relazioni sino-francese, ma anche della vita urbana e rurale dei nativi. Essa mostra in particolare le attività ufficiali della delegazione francese: escursioni panoramiche, organizzati arti dello spettacolo (teatro, acrobati parata o di un'orchestra cinese sovrastata con bandiere francesi in occasione del 14 luglio), riviste militari e fotografie ufficiali di miscelazione dignitari funzionari cinesi e francesi, etc. Alcune immagini ritraggono anche l'imparzialità della macchina giudiziaria in piena Boxer Rebellion: cinese uniformi della polizia arcaiche, le teste degli insorti esposte in gabbie nella pubblica piazza, ma l'esecuzione quintuple. Il fotografo dilettante mette in mostra anche i monumenti storici, realizzando vedute di città, pagode, torri, porte e altri muri. Ma quello che sembra affascinare soprattutto il giovane medico, che è la vita in strada. Nota diverse immagini che mostrano le donne con piccoli piedi fasciati, un paio di anni prima che il divieto di questa antica mutilazione erotico. Coullaud coglie anche la vita quotidiana della gente comune, attraverso scene rurali e piccoli commerci (barbieri, vestiti ...), ma anche i significativi e anche mandarini le pose solenni. Attraverso questo album unico, importante testimonianza di valore etnologico, maggiore Henry Coullaud ci dà una visione d'insieme della vita cinese a cavallo del ventesimo secolo. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Exceptionnel album regroupant au total 57 photographies originales en tirages albuminés et argentiques d'époque. Ces photographies ont été réalisées entre 1900 et 1901 par le médecin militaire Henry Coullaud (1872-1954). Reliure de l'époque en demi percaline bleue à coins, dos lisse muet, plats de papier fleuri, une étiquette rouge présentant des idéogrammes chinois a été contrecollée sur le premier plat. La calligraphie chinoise sur cette étiquette, comme l'explique le Professeur Denis Coullaud, figure le patronyme du médecin : « "A Kou-Lou, la main merveilleuse qui rend le printemps". Ainsi pouvait-on traduire une inscription chinoise dont les caractères se détachaient en noir sur le fond cramoisi d'une étroite banderole verticale. Cela s'appelait un "paï-pien". Par une belle matinée de printemps de l'année 1900, ce présent fut apporté en grande pompe, précédé par une musique nasillarde d'une clarinette, qu'accompagnait le son grêle d'une petite flûte, et que rythmait un tambourin. La famille Wang, dont le patriarche avait été opéré avec succès de la cataracte, remerciait ainsi le médecin-major Coullaud. Les Chinois avaient traduit son nom par approximation phonétique, en traçant les deux caractères "kou" et "lou". » (in Pr. Denis Coullaud, La Main merveilleuse qui rend le printemps, 1992). Chaque cliché a été annoté (lieu et légende) par le photographe qui a également rédigé une dédicace au verso de la page de titre du premier album : « A ma s

        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.

Approximately 100pp. The album contains 220 gelatin silver photographs, most 3" x 4", tipped in and with about a third of the album pages empty.

The album begins with views of the local railroad station and many images of the group's large house in the woods (possibly a boarding house), along with log cabins, out buildings, a wood-planked path to the lake, the lake house, and dock. The surrounding forest is heavily featured. There are a number of interesting group photos showing members posing on rocks and logs or relaxing at their house and campsites. Many photos show successful hunters and fishermen/women proudly posing with their trophies and engaged in food preparation. Photos of the small train station show signs that read "Pleasant Lake" and one of the loosened photos of a fisherman has a Lausinburg, New York address on the reverse, confirming the images were taken in the Empire State.An attractive visual record of turn-of-the century outdoor leisure activities of wealthy New Yorkers.

        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.

        HAUNTING HAND-COLORED PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG AFRICAN-AMERICAN IN A PULLMAN PORTER UNIFORM

      A large, 15 x 12 inch portrait photograph with contemporary color of either crayons or pastels, with added charcoal, c.1900. The photograph was mounted to a cardboard backing when made; the backing board is acid and shows the ghost of a transfer which reads (in reverse) in pencil, 3rd (and) Williams. Aside from a few very minor scratches that do not penetrate the surface, and a small dampstain to one tip, this is a very fine example. Since this photograph has been entirely colored with turquoise blue background, brown skin-tones, and charcoal for coat and hat, we surmise by the weight of the base paper that this was initially a bromide print. The hand-colored and painted photograph has been with us since daguerreian times and continues to be made today. The variety of processes and applications is almost as endless as with "straight" black & white photography. See Heinz and Bridget Henisch THE PAINTED PHOTOGRAPH 1839-1914.14222.

A collection of 111 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver snap shot photographs affixed to white cardboard pages, with a few loose photos laid in.

A photo album featuring a large amount (approximately half) of the images set on a Canadian ranch in the late 1880s or early 1890s. The images include the stables, what appears to be someone operating on a sick (or possibly dead) horse, ranch hands in full "cowboy" dress complete with hat and lasso atop their horses, breaking horses, as well as trick riding, and one amusing photo of a man, a dog, and a hose. One particularly wonderful photograph shows a bucking horse with a rider. The album also contains a parade in Quebec City with hundreds of people lining the road and several photos of building and two photos showing the town circa 1880. The latter part of the album show images from a trip to Europe with town of Lourdes in Southern France, include the old fort and the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. Also show are various images of the Alps along with stagecoaches, glaciers, Matterhorn, and mountain goats can be seen. A few photos show the St. Gotthard tunnel entrance, the third largest road tunnel in the world, under construction, it was completed in 1881. A fascinating look at life on a Canadian ranch as well as an excursion to Europe for a mix or business and pleasure.
