        38 photographies originales de Jerusalem

      [ - 38 photographies albuminées Jérusalem, [circa 1900-1910], , 38 photographies albuminées (en moyenne 220x280 mm), demi-chagrin aubergine, plats en bois d'olivier sculpté, Album de photographies réalisées autour des années 1900-1910 par le département photographique, créé en 1897, de l'American Colony, durant l'âge d'or de sa production . Dans l'esprit de la première production des photographes de la Colony (Elijah Meyers, Fareed Naseef, les frères Lind et Furman Baldwin), les 38 photographies mélangent des points de vue atypique de la ville de Jérusalem et de sa région, des monuments archéologiques, historiques et religieux, mais surtout, des scènes de vie des habitants de la Colony : 11 photographies d'ateliers d'hommes et de jeunes garçons travaillant le cuir, le ferronnerie, le dessin et la gravure, l'ébénisterie, le cuivre, la fonderie et la filature et 1 photographie d'une école de jeunes filles. Le département photographique a toujours produit une double production : des photographies "domestiques" et d'autres "commerciales". Bien que la production photographique de la Colony soit importante et rapidement semi-industrielle, les clichés de la première période, avant la première guerre mondiale, sont peu courants (voir l'état de la donation "Eric and Edith Matson" à la Library of Congress). Mais, l'importance du présent document réside peut-être dans le fait que la fondation de l'American Colony (un groupuscule d'américains chrétiens, rapidement rejoints par des européens) coïncide avec le rachat des terres de Palestine ottomane à partir de 1882 et la fondation en 1897 par Hetzel de l'Organisation sioniste mondiale : en d'autres termes, il rejoint, chronologiquement, l'histoire de l'expansion des colonies juives sur le territoire Palestinien, avant la création de l'État d'Israël. Sur la photo de l'atelier de dessin, on note un panneau "Fondation Alphonse de Rothschild ". Un moment de l'histoire, en photographies, du Moyen-Orient conçut et fabriqué sur les terres de Jérusalem, la trace des nouveaux occidentaux en Palestine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sister Carrie

      1900 - DREISER, Theodore. Sister Carrie. New York: Doubleday, Page, 1900. Octavo, original red cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6000.Exceptionally rare first edition of Dreiser’s controversial first novel.According to biographer W. A. Swanberg, Dreiser “seemed to have had no inkling that he was creating a revolutionary work. He wrote with a compassion for human suffering that was exclusive with him in America. He wrote with a tolerance for transgression that was as exclusive and as natural” (De Grazia, 101). He was aware, however, that others would find the novel controversial. Even before it was submitted he had made attempts to revise, or “clean up” his novel, at the urging of his first wife, Sarah Osborne White, “Jug.” With her help and that of his good friend Arthur Henry, he made many changes and cut an estimated 36,000 words from the manuscript. Franklin Doubleday, who was alarmed when he returned from Europe to find that his firm had taken the work, “went on to publish Carrie, but on his own terms. He personally edited the proofs and insisted to Dreiser that all the profanities be removed and certain ‘suggestive’ passages altered… The much-laundered Carrie became spotless; worse-yet, as Dreiser’s biographer Richard Lingeman has said, Carrie’s cheap-looking binding and lettering ‘would have been more appropriate on a plumbing manual.’ Frank Doubleday carried out the terms of the contract for Carrie in the most minimal way possible, ‘in the hope that it would not attract much notice” (DeGrazia, 103). Because of the alterations Sister Carrie avoided court prosecution but Dreiser felt it was “stillborn.” The expurgated text made Carrie’s motivations incoherent, and bad reviews killed the novel on its first publication. Dreiser was deeply affected by these struggles and did not publish another novel for ten years. H.L. Mencken spearheaded the novel’s critical reappraisal, and it came to be recognized as a groundbreaking and influential novel of American realism and naturalism. As Sinclair Lewis said of Dreiser in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech in 1930, “without his pioneering, I doubt if any of us could, unless we liked to be sent to jail, seek to express life, beauty and terror” (Parker & Kermode, 2). Doubleday’s records indicate, “the first edition consisted of 1008 copies, of which 129 were sent out for review, 465 were sold, and the balance, 423 copies, were turned over to [remainder house] J. F. Taylor & Company” (Orton, Dreiseriana, 17). This first edition is extremely rare. In 1929 Vrest Orton wrote that Sister Carrie “is much scarcer than is generally supposed… A book printed in 1900 to the number of only 1008 copies, nearly half of them remaindered (everyone knows the fate of remainders) leaving only 546 actually sold to the trade, is, in 1930, a very scarce book. In the course of 30 years, any edition of 1000 copies of a novel will, for the most part, become lost, destroyed or worn out. And most copies that do exist, will not do so in a very good state” (Orton, 18). McDonald 28-32. Orton 16-19. Owner inscription on half title.Scattered foxing and soiling to text as often, inner paper hinges split, closed tear to final leaf, light wear to sound original cloth. A very good copy. Extremely rare and desirable. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Art Nouveau poster - Milanaise.

      Lithografie, reclame affiche voor Milanaise haarpoeder, kleurendruk met goud, vervaardigd te Parijs rond 1900 door Albert Émile Artigue.Ook in Nederland en Vlaanderen wordt voor dit roze poeder reclame gemaakt: "De Milanaise doet Luizen, Neetelen, Pellekens, Vuiligheid en ziekten der Schedelhuid verdwijnen. 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. Van 1875 tot 1901 exposeerde hij regelmatig in de Salon de Paris en de Salon des Artistes Français en in München in 1901. In 1890 kreeg hij te Parijs een eervolle vermelding .Het affiche Milanaise werd gemaakt in de hoogtijdagen van de Art Nouveau. De sierlijke lijnen, frisse pastelkleuren en weelderige motieven in de weergave van sensuele vrouwen, werden de iconen van het fin de siècle. De natuur wordt gezien als belangrijkste inspiratiebron, gracieus gestileerde planten en bloemen worden ervaren in ongemengde kleuren in vlakken die duidelijk door lijnen van elkaar zijn gescheiden.Prijs: € 2.150,- (incl. lijst).

        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co. 1900 - Longmans, Green, & Co., London, 1900. First edition, first printing. British first edition, first printing of Churchill's fourth published book. The leaf advertising the second impression of The River War [one side] and Seventh Thousand of The Malakand Field Force [the other side] is present as are the 32 pages with 50,000-10/99 [last page]. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria is the first of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armoured train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria contains 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900. It was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Churchill returned from South Africa in July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election".

Neben Luftakrobaten, Kunstreitern und Clowns konnten auch 23 "lebende Ungeheuerlichkeiten" aus aller Welt bestaunt werden. Darunter befand sich etwa Cora McNeal als "Das magnetische Weib".

        PHOTO ALBUM OF CHINESE EXECUTION, BEHEADING AND PUNISHMENT: A GROUP OF 38 ORIGIN

      [China 1900-1912, Various Publishers]. Brown cloth album,. ribbon tied, spine, 23.1 x 13 cm., gold stamped cover title,. brown deckle-edge pages, very good, clean condition, 38. various photos & photo postcards, color and black & white.. A GRIZZLY & STUNNING GROUP OF REAL & COLLOTYPE PHOTOS A stunning collection of bizarre and unusual images, seldom found. There were probably thousands of images of all walks of life of China done from about 1890-1945. While we have been an antiquarian Asian specialist dealers for 50 years, we have seen very few images of this subject, and never had an album with such a rounded and cohesive group on the subject of punishment, beheading and torture. . The Chinese legal system demanded severe punishment for heinous crimes, crimes against Confucianism and the state. The government exacted retribution in the most severe form of social and legal justice. . The most serious crimes such as harming one's parents or family members meant certain death, even dismembering called "LINCHI," where the criminal is cut into small pieces. This would mean his soul would never come to rest. . Beheading was the usual punishment for pirates, thieves and major crimes. The "cage" was for less severe crimes but often meant slow death by being suspended in the "cage" by one's neck until dead. The "cage" was used mostly on women for severe crimes, it could mean death or a very uncomfortable time. The "cangue" was for minor crimes and was used commonly for both men and women. *** TECHNIQUE OF THE IMAGES: The album consists of some 38 individual original photographs in silver gelatin type images, standard photographs, hand-colored photographs, colored collotype photos and printed color collotypes. We have indicated the graphic technique with each description of the individual images. . SIZE: By and large most images are "postcard" size, give or take a few millimeters. Most are postcard format, that is on stiff card, with blank mailing address on the verso. . CONDITION: Each item is in very good or better condition. Where there is a condition issue, we point that out. If nothing is stated then it is in "very good or better condition." * DATES: A few of the cards are dated. We believe the earliest is from about 1900-1912. Some have postal dates, or written dates, others for example when Chinese wear the long braid queue, that indicates an image from just before or no later than 1912. *** A LIST OF EACH CARD, ITS CAPTION AND TITLE: Not all cards have a title. Where there is not title we have attempted to put an appropriate title to indicate the subject. Most cards that have captions are in English, then followed by French, German and Russian. . TITLE/CONTENTS OF EACH CARD: . 1. English caption: "CHINESE COURT OF JUSTICE." This shows two criminals performing "Kow-Tow" by humbling themselves on their knees bowing down to the seated Magistrate, who is a Mandarin. He wears his official robe, sports sunglasses, wears the typical black hat, and review the charges at his desk. His deputy stands to his left, along with four other Imperial guards. Two of which each hold a long paddle to whip the criminals should they get out of hand. A scribe is seated to the Magistrate's right, brush in hand. The Imperial banner is in the background. The card is printed in collotype color. The verso states: "M. Sternberg & Co., Hongkong. There is a penned Chinese greeting on the verso and a signature, else clean. Color collotype. . 2. English caption at the bottom: "EXECUTION OF 'NAMOA' PIRATES AT KOWLOONG [sic] for Kowloon." Eight British officials have witnessed the beheading of 12 Chinese Pirates on the beach in Hong Kong. Original silver gelatin photograph. . 3. Another b.w. photograph of the same as #2 above, in post card format. Original b.w. photograph. . 4. Another per above #2, 3 above, right, left corners broken away, lesser quality, same photograph. Published by M. Sternberg, Hong Kong. Black & white collotype photograph. . 5. English caption at the bottom: "THE HIGH EXECUTIONER. NOTE HIS HAPPY SMILE." Shows the High Executioner standing by his desk of justice'. He holds a very long beheading sword in his left hand [toward the camera] other officials look on. Original b.w. photograph. . 6. The High Executioner [same man as above] readies his next victim, he forces the convicted man into position. Several officials and onlookers observe. Original b.w. photograph. . 7. The Chinese peasant executioner stands behind two bound and kneeling convicted men in the dirt street. A mob of people are present, on the right are a number of foreigners in summer straw hats, as well as 2 groups of 5-6 U.S. Navy sailors in white uniforms looking on. This indicates the location to be a "Port of Call" for the American navy, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tientsin and other "Treaty Ports." Most likely this is a scene in Hong Kong or Canton b the looks of the light clothing on the Chinese. Adjacent to the U.S. sailors are a group of Chinese onlookers on both sides of the street. Some wear a long queue of braided hair. This indicates a date of before 1912. Original b.w. photograph, a bit faded & grainy. . 8. English caption at the bottom: "BEHEADED IN MANCHURIA." This shows a scene of many Chinese soldiers, many of which hold rifles or swords. The Executioner is about to swing his very long sword and behead the convicted who is on his knees, blindfolded and has his shirt pulled off his shoulders. With a semi-circle of military onlookers. B.w. collotype. . 9. English caption: "IN CHINA." This early photo shows four Imperial Guards holding down the convicted man; one pulls his long queue of hair two others hold his arms while the fourth holds the sword just above the mans neck. There are two other Imperial Guards looking on. A large mob has gathered in the dirt covered street looking on curiously. There are a number of foreign men and women standing behind the first rank of Chinese slightly in the Background, including what appears to be foreign military men. This card is old, ca. 1900-1905, with rounded corners. Original b.w. photograph, a bit faded. . 10. English caption: "EXECUTION IN CHINA." This is a matching card to item #8. It shows a muddy dirt road with water and tire tracks, and the torso of the above beheaded man laying in the middle of the road. A very large number of Chinese and one foreigner stands to the immediate left foreground with a bow tie and white suit and straw hat. Many of the Chinese hold round fans, its hot, most likely Canton or Hong Kong. One Chinese in the immediate foreground faces away from the camera with a very long braided queue. Circa 1900-1905. Original b.w. photograph, same series and fading as item #9. . THE RAREST OF ALL PHOTOS IN THIS ALBUM: 11. A beheaded person, with many deep large gashes cut into his hip, legs arms. He is bound on two pieces of board with bamboo strips like a hog going to market. There is a thick and long pole at the uppermost part, so that two Chinese may carry him like any other baggage. His legs and arms are folded to make this parcel as small as possible. There is no head whatsoever. This is a special kind of torture and punishment, called "LINCHI," where the criminal is cut into pieces. A grizzly original b.w. photograph, about the same bit of fading per #9, 10, similar series.. . 12. The Chinese army with rifles drawn and pointing at blind-folded prisoners. There are four convicted sitting on the weeds. Three foreigners wearing sport jackets, white pants and straw hats look on, while other several soldiers including one officer with a very long sword looks on. Original b.w. photograph, a touch of fading at both margin sides with a small amount encroaching into the image, ca .2mm on each side, else excellent sharp clean image. . 13. English caption: "A PAIR WHO PAID" 2.1 [February 1901]. This grizzly photograph shows two beheaded heads resting on rocks looking at the camera. They are bloody. There is a monogram reading "cp' at the lower right corner. Original b.w. photograph, a bit of very minor fading else sharp image. . 14. A Chinese pirate is captured and being held by Imperial Guards. In the immediate left background can be seen a Mandarin official wearing the typical conical hat. In the foreground is a guard holding the convicted. The convicted has no shirt and has what appears to be a large breast with a long nipple, and a beard. It looks like a man, he has no shirt on, and is being held fast. Original b.w. photograph. This is the smallest of the group, 7 x 11.4 cm., it is too small to fit into the slits and was mounted with the usual antique photo 'corners.' . 15. English caption: "NANKING CHINA 1911." This shows a group of Chinese soldiers look at four decapitated bodies on the ground. The closest Chinese soldier has a large white cloth, and he is wiping the blood from a very long sword. Ten other Chinese army men look on, one has three medals on his left chest, and he wears long leather boots, and is most likely an officer as his hat is different from all others. The convicted are bound in ropes and blindfolded. Original b.w. photograph. . 16. A close-up photograph of two beheaded torsos and the grizzly detached heads. The convicted is tied with a heavy rope around his neck and arms. Original b.w. photograph, likely from the same series as #15 above. . 17. English caption: "AGRESSION STOPS THIEVING IN CHINA." This shows a tripod of bamboo holding a head, below which is a decapitated body in the street. Many Chinese onlookers observe the scene. Original b.w. photograph, grainy quality, slight discoloration to right one-half.. . 18. "REVOLUTIONARIES AND HANKOW." Shows five men bound and tied to a large post.

Collotype b.w. photograph. . 22. French caption: "EXECUTION D'UN PIRATE CHINOIS." "EXECUTION OF A CHINESE PIRATE." This shows an ethnic minority clothed man holding a very long sword. In front of him is the beheaded torso of a man who has his arms tied behind him. There are several other Chinese women and children in the background. Collotype b.w. photograph. . 23. English caption: "READY TO BE BEHEADED." "Photo by Denniston & Sullivan." This shows a Chinese man with another pulling his braided queue. The convicted is on his knees, and another Chinese is pulling his rope-bound hands as the convicted man faces the ground. Many Chinese onlookers observe the scene. A Chinese official seems to defer to a higher officer off to the side as many people look to him for the signal to behead the criminal. In the background is one foreign man wearing a suite and had smoking a cigar. Published by Denniston & Sullivan, Series 2, No 92 on the back. Blue [blue ink used rather than the standard black] collotype photograph. . 24. English caption: "ROBBERS BEING BEHEADED AT TIELING." This shows a circle of eight beheaded robbers. Each has no shirt and is face down in the dirt. A large circle of Chinese on lookers take in the grizzly scene.

There is a Hong Kong 4 cent postage stamp on this card and it is cancelled, with "06" date on it. Collotype b.w. photograph. . 27. The same as 26 but in color collotype. . 28. French & Russian captions: "A LA TORTURE." "THE TORTURE." This shows a prisoner man held fast a by Chinese guard who holds a rifle and has a belt of a ammunition around his waist.

This shows four Chinese male criminals all in large wooden "cangue" around their necks. two on the outside are standing, two on the inside are seated. The center left seated man has a paper attached to his "cangue" stating: "600." We presume it means that amount of days he is sentenced for.

The verso states: "The Hongkong Pictorial Postcard Co., P.O. Box, No. 4." Followed by: "1072:06," meaning no. 1972, printed 1096. At the far right corner is "170389."

This shows a man in the background being held in a wooden cage, his neck is clamped so he is suspended by his head. He stands on a cross board. If the Magistrate orders no cross board is allowed and the man hangs to death by the head bone and jaw. In this case he is just caged. There is a Chinese board with his crime attached to the left side of the cage. In the foreground is a pony with his master and two young men looking on. There is a Chinese text at the top stating this example is near the Great Wall of China. Collotype b.w. photograph. . 31. English caption: "CHINESE IN DEATH CAGES." This shows six wooden cages with six men suspended by their head, feet dangling. They appear to be dead or near dead, Each has a haunting look on his face.

Sternberg, Hongkong. Printed in color collotype photograph. . 34. English caption: "THE MOST HORRIBLE WAY OF EXECUTTING [sic] CRIMINALS IS THE 'LINCHI' CUTTING INTO PIECES.

RARE!. This is a wonderful and quite rare album. It shows the German contingent sent to China to join in the defense of foreign embassies in Peking during the 1900 uprising of the siege of the Boxers. The work begins with the group aboard the S.S. Strassburg from Bremen, and their landing in the German colony of Tsingtao, Tsingtau. From there, it was a long trek down to Peking in the snowy winter. Classic photos posed for the camera & history [4 in all]. Arrival in China with more classic poses of the German troops before Chinese sights and in a temple where they were stationed. One shows large wooden cases of their supplies stacked up in the temple garden with the commanders posing for a lovely memor- ial photos. Well taken photographs by the group's photograp- hic officer, nicely composed and carefully taken, these are NOT tourist snap shots ! These average two photos per page. * A group of German military men pose before a wide variety of Chinese pagodas and sights, some in long capes, spiked helmets, with Chinese officials ! Their arrival in Peking during a heavy snowfall in 1900 is documented by a series of superb & rare photographs from the Summer Palace where the lake is frozen ! Magnificent but frozen Peking sights, architectural views, palaces, Germans on the move with horse and carts through the snow as they deployment on orders to defend the foreign legations. Inside a legation taking lunch [tiffin]; outside two or three Chinese Boxers were executed hands bound they lay face down in the snow. More photos of travel along the way, wonderful Chinese scenery & buildings, architecture, snowed in barracks, their visit to the Great Wall in the dead of winter with snow sprinkled all over, a passage through Chinese villages and towns with long columns of German troops. One comic and lovely image of a German dressed in Chinese clothes, another in a Chinese garden. A German celebration, Chinese and German open-air trial where the accused Chinese are on their knees before a magistrate, Germans playing badminton, leisure time in a garden, soldiers packing medical supplies on horses, and German headquarters &c. * PEKING: A lovely series of photos showing the great sites of Peking and the Imperial Palace, large battalion of German soldiers on parade, another shows them marching to a great hall, destruction of Chinese buildings, superb views of fine Chinese architecture, lakes, bridges, bas-reliefs, the Great Buddha with soldiers taking a memorial snap shot.

Interiors of the Forbidden city, Temple of Heaven, Emperor's throne, the great walled city, Germans guarding Chinese buildings, Japanese Embassy, Chine- ese gates and walls showing Chinese children saluting a German officer. Magnificent temples and Fu-dogs, Germans playing tourists taking commemorative photos before many great sights. Fascinating photographs of ordinary Chinese who mug for the German camera with a German officer standing in the background, pagodas, Chinese officials, and photos of the German cemetery with tribute paid to fallen comrades. Huge temple guardians, stone bride & others. * A final pair of photos grace the last page the upper shows a large contingent of Germans on parade as they are reviewed by their officers on horse-back, the lower shows them aboard a train, in preparations for departure back to Germany, thus ending the album. The remaining five pages are blank. * This album is an excellent example of the German contingent in China during the historic Boxer Rebellion [1900-1901]. It is also a primary record of what they did, where they went, acting as tourists during free moments. Recording photos of the great and small wonders in China, the people and their exotic culture. * This excellent album is in remarkable condition, with tissue guards over each page intact, all are photos neatly laid down and centered, their condition is flawless. While the images have some degree of fading, they are nevertheless still clear and sharp photographs taken by an officer with an excellent Leila [German ?] camera. This bright officer had the great foresight to record this great adventure showing himself and his comrades-in-arms on their sojourn through China to Peking. We thank him for leaving this superb album for posterity. * Color scans can be sent by email.
