        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."

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.

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. Three others have a tag of some sort, but the writing is illegible. The card is a color collotype, with purple, blue, red, white and yellow color. 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."

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.

        [Photo Album] Views of Mexico

      Mexico City: C. B. Waite, ca 1900. Oblong folio, 31 x 26 cm, consisting of a photograph album with 51 b/w (albumen print) photos, 20 x 13 cm. The photos depict life in Mexico; included are architectural photos, photos of tradesmen, street scenes, parades, and railroads. Waite (1861 - 1927) moved from a studio in El Paso, TX, to Mexico City in 1896 and remained there until sometime around 1916. His extensive output is characterized by an eye for what was considered traditional Mexican. Although somewhat later than Briquet, his photographs are much more difficult to find. This is confirmed as well by the scarcity of library holdings - only the Bancroft has more than a small handful - and the situation is the same at auction, where apparently no album of his is recorded as having appeared to date. The present album is in very good condition; a few of the photos show some fading, but other wise this is a superb collection of Waite's work. The album as well is in excellent condition.

        Phra Malai (probably).

      Thailand around 1900. A folding manuscript, (leporello, concertino style, accordion style) in original painted brown boards, imitating wood. 670 x 140 mm. With a total lenght of ca. 1450 cm. 94 leaves (188 pages) on thick khoi paper. Cambodian script in black ink. 2 leaves with many corrections. Containg 22 fine coloured miniatures arranged as pairs of paintings at the ends of two pages. Each painting measuring ca. 28 x 18 cm. and runs on two pages each (12 on one side and 10 on the other side). Text in five lines, sometimes between paintings. Well preserved and complete.. "From the early 19th century the didactic account of the monk Phra Malai who journed to heaven and hell was the most prevalent subject of illustrated Thai manuscripts. It is not clear why examples of this story are so rare from the 18th century and before, for it had apparantly been known in Thailand for many centuries. The Phra Malai story derives from a Pali language text thought to have originated in Sri Lanka. A Thai verse setting was composed in the first half of the 18th century by the poet Prince Thammathibet. Other Thai versions of it are anonymous, and hence hard to date. Pali language texts, from Tahiland and other south-east Asian lands such as Burma, Cambodia, and Laos suggest that it may have been composed as early as the 15th or 16th century by learned monks in northern Thailand." (Henry Ginsburg: Thai Manuscript Painting p. 72)

      [c.1900?] - Ink, pencil & watercolour on thin paper, with Crane?s illustrated signature at lower left corner. Mounted on cream card. 22 x 28.5cm. A baby boy holding a rattle sits on a cushion alongside two dogs and a host of toys. He is in front of a globe with imaginary locations including the Bay of Milkolia and Lollipopolis. Mother (to the left) and father (to the right) overlook the globe and child from above. The title, Babylolia, illustrated with playing children runs across the centre of the image. An unrecorded illustration by the influential and prolific children?s book illustrator Walter Crane, 1845-1915. Neither the BL or Copac record this title. In addition, the Ashmolean and the Whitworth Art Gallery, both of which hold significant Crane collections, can find no reference to a publication or drawing by Crane under this title. It is likely therefore that this was a personal drawing given as a gift to celebrate the birth or birthday of a friend or relative?s baby.

        Paris, Blick über Dächer am Montmartre auf Sacré-Coeur".

      - Farbradierung und Mischtechnik, um 1900, auf bräunlichem Kupferdruckpapier, signiert. 59,5:44,7 cm. Vom Künstler als &#132;épreuve l&#146;artiste" bezeichnet. &#150; Mit Blindstempel in der rechten unteren Ecke. An den Seiten und oben auf die Plattenkante geschnitten, hinterlegte Knickfalte rechts unten außerhalb der Darstellung. Héran war als Graphiker sehr experimentierfreudig. Er hatte damit erst 1896 begonnen und konnte bis 1914 bereits ein &#140;uvre von 183 Blättern vorweisen. &#132;In Paris hat sich Herrmann den Sinn für die feine, delikate &#130;facture&#145; angeeignet; das springt auch in seiner Graphik hinüber. Er ist keinesfalls ein Tüftler und Pedant. Aber es beliebt ihm nicht, seine wohlverstandene Zeichnung und Modellierung durch einen ruddeligen Vortrag zu paralysieren. Im Tiefdruck pflegt er besonders die kalte Nadel und die Schabkunst: für die letztere bedient er sich sehr oft der durch Sandgebläse gekörnten Platten. Sie tragen einen Charakter, der zwischen jenen der Sandpapiermanier und dem eigentlichen gewiegten Mezzotint liegt, nicht so weich und sanft wie diese, nicht so unausgeglichen und zufallsreich wie jene. Dann hat er auch viel mit der Kreide auf Stein gezeichnet" (zit. aus: H. W. Singer, Die moderne Graphik. 2. Aufl. Leipzig, 1920, Ss. 134/135).

Das Pendel und der Schlüssel liegen lose bei, ebenso ein loses kleines Teil ( ein kleiner abgebrochener Ast oben an der Uhr ). Die Uhr ist nicht richtig funktionstüchtig, das Ziffernblat ist etwas fleckig, die Uhr teils berieben bzw. teils etwas oxydiert. Wohl um 1900 herum gefertigt. ( Gewicht 3000 Gramm ). Die Uhr steht auf einem schwarzlackiertem Holzsockel, dieser verso handschriftlich beschriftet ( unleserlich ), der Holzsockel stärker berieben sowie mit kleiner Beschädigung.

Er übernahm nach dem Tod seines Vaters 1901 die Firma Conrad Felsing in Berlin. Ein Teil des Geschäftshauses wurde von Willibald Felsing an den Optiker und Instrumentenmacher Oskar Messter vermietet, der hier das erste Berliner Filmstudio einrichtete. Hierdurch erlangte Felsing Kontakte mit der Theater und Filmwelt, was später auch seiner Nichte Marlene Dietrich nutzte, die ihn Onkel Willi nannte. Das Schaufenster der Firma neben dem Hotel Adlon, ganz in der Nähe vom Brandenburger Tor, war weitbekannt und in jedem Baedeker als ein Wahrzeichen von Berlin aufgeführt. Hier pendelte eine Weltuhr.mit der zentralen Anzeige der Zeit in Berlin - hierum acht kleinere Zifferblätter mit Angabe der Zeit in London, New York, San Francisco, Tokio, Bangkok, Karatchi, Teheran und Moskau. 1924 gründete Willi König und Willibald Albert Conrad Felsing aus dem \"Zentralverband der Deutschen Uhrmacher\" die Firma \"Markenuhr GmbH\". Als Marke wurde ZentRa verwendet bzw. übernommen. 1927 wurde daraus die \"ZentRa Garantiegemeinschaft e.V.\" gegründet. Ab 1940 war die Firma an den Fertigstellungsarbeiten der A. Lange & Söhne Beobachtungsuhr Kaliber 48 beteiligt. Die Firma Conrad Felsing blieb bis zm Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs in ihrem Geschäft in der Straße Unter den Linden in Berlin bis zur Zerstörung tätig. <<< ( Pic erhältlich // webimage available ) Versandkostenfreie Lieferung Felsing, Conrad Felsing, Uhr, Uhrmacher, Berlin, Kaminuhr, Tischuhr, Liebespaar, Google, Marlene Dietrich, Mouray, Johann Felsing, Willibald Felsing
