        Paeonia Mountain. A Collection of 50 Choice Varieties

      1900. [JAPANESE PEONY CATALOGUE]. [Yokohama Ueki Kabushiki Kaisha]. Paeonia Moutan, a Collection of 50 Choice Varieties. Illustrated with 25 full-page chromolithographs, printed on rectos and versos of 13 leaves. Copyright leaf at end. Oblong folio, 300 x 410 mm., bound in original blue Japanese ripple-grained paper wrappers with lithographed paper label on upper cover, stab-stitched with yarn ties. Yokohama: [ca. 1900]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| A fine copy of one of the special nursery sample catalogues issued by the Yokohama Nursery Company, a consortium of Japanese nursery owners who dominated the lucrative market of flower export at the height of the Western vogue for Japanese gardens. Earlier catalogues from the Nursery (notably their Maple catalogues) used pochoir (stencil-coloured) illustrations; the present catalogue, showing the stunningly bright blossoms of various different species of peonies, makes effective use of the full range of tones offered by chromolithography. The flowers are shown close up, most life-size or larger, against a background of green leaves and pale green sky; the effect is extraordinarily dreamlike. Two varieties are shown in each lithograph; each has a small rectangular caption with the catalogue number in Arabic numerals, and the name of the flower in Japanese with English transcription or Latin name. The copyright or colophon leaf at end, entirely in Japanese except for the words "copyright reserved," may supply the date. The Nursery issued catalogs until about 1922, which are collected as much for their aesthetic beauty as for the detailed evidence they provide of flower and exotic plant imports at the turn of the century. Individual trees (including bonsais) and shrubs from the Yokohama Nursery can still be found in the Arnold Arboretum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and among the cherry tree plantings in Washington, D.C. This is a spectacular example of one of the rarer flower catalogues issued by the Nursery. Two small abrasions to lithograph no. 35-36, tiny marginal tears to lower edge of first plate; corners a trifle bumped, some fading to covers, else a fine, bright copy.

        Tales of the Wonder Club. By "DryasDust"

      [London]: Harrison and Sons, 1900. First edition. Illustrated by John Jellicoe and Val Prince after designs by the author. 3 vols. 8vo. In publisher's gilt-stamped plum cloth. Spine of first volume faded to brown, corners bumped, but overall a bright, tight set. Dryasdust Horror A classic collection of tales of the supernatural, first issued here by "Dryasdust", then later, in 1903, under the name of M.Y. Halidom. "M.Y. Halidom, itself a pseudonym, without doubt, is also a 'pen-name' of 'Dryasdust', whose 'Tales of the Wonder Club', a rare and much-sought fantasy book, was the source of much speculation as to its author, at the turn of the century. The problem has never been satisfactorily solved and the talented author is an unknown, even today. There is little room to doubt that it is someone of importance in the literary world" (Wolff)In 2005, British businessman and writer Alexander Huth (1838-1914) was identified as the author of Tales of the Wonder Club under his psuedonyms "Dryasdust" and "M.Y. Halidom".

        Mr. Dooley on the Convention." Original manuscript of this humorous piece concerning McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt and the Convention of 1900

      [New York], ca. 1900 - Written at the time of the 1900 Presidential Convention, this amusing piece, in "Mr. Dooley's" Irish dialect, deals with the prospect of Theodore Roosevelt's nomination as McKinley's vice-president, which time has shown to be an epochal event in American history. Mr. Dooley lightheartedly notes that, "'Tis well known that Mack was agin Tiddy fi vice-president. Th' las' thing he said to Mark Hanna when he laid down his thrunk at th' deepo was: 'Above all things don't put Rosenfelt on th' ticket - I wudden't fi all th' money in th' wurruld have yr rip this bright an' gallant leader fim' th' sarvice in his native state an' condim him to a horrible existence in Washington fi four years an' give him no chanst fi further priomotion -'" He continues discussing the appearance and attitudes of TR, and his reluctance to be nominated, ending with his strong suspicion that McKinley wanted him all the time. (A year later, of course, McKinley was assassinated and TR was President). Finley Peter Dunne (1867-1936) had a distinguished editorial career on a number of newspapers, including William C. Whitney's Morning Telegraph, which led the Whitneys to become his patrons, and subsidize him as they might a son. Most of his "Mr. Dooley" sketches appeared between 1893 and 1905, by which time, having received more than a million Whitney dollars, and no longer needing the income from his pen, he virtually ceased to write. A large factor in Dunne's success was his use of Irish dialect, behind which he could amusingly conceal his very real outrage at the wrongs of the times. He has been called America's greatest humorist after Mark Twain. A significant manuscript Written on fourteen 11 x 8-1/2 in. pages in pen and (mostly) pencil, with numerous corrections. Light soiling to first and last page, a few bits of minor marginal fraying, else fine

        Dessins d'Ornementation Plane en Couleurs. Art Nouveau

      Paris: Guerinet, [1900]. FIRST EDITION. VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Folio (50 x 35cm; 20 x 14 inches). Loose as issued, in an original illustrated wrapper for Part 2 with the number and price altered; this inside a modern portfolio of cloth and boards with a printed label; title and preface leaves, two leaves listing plates and 32 chromolitho plates with some 120 designs. COMPLETE. The first plate list leaf is dusty and a bit frayed for some reason, the rest is in excellent shape. On versos of several plates appears a former owner's unobtrusive ink-stamp: "F.R. Wooldridge. One of the scarcest and grandest of all French Art Nouveau pattern books, and indeed of any such work published from the mid 19th century up to the 1930's. Issued in two parts, this large folio suite is justly considered to be one of *the* contemporary collections and presentations of Art Nouveau designs during its apogee, a dazzling array that is not only important as a historical artifact, but is simply a joy to behold. Beauclair's "Dessins" were beautifully printed in gold and colors, not in Paris but in Stuttgart by Hoffmann, at that time one of the pre-eminent printers of chrmolithography. The work was issued simultaneously in both French and German, thereby becoming a great inspiration to artists and designers internationally. Whereas stylized flowers, vines, leaves, and other natural forms are in abundance, Beauclair asserts that simple copying from nature has been abandoned. Bauclaire's brief but significant preface is tantamount to a manifesto of Art Nouveau. This is an early publication Beauclair's career, which continues for another half century. - These images have been frequently reproduced, always unsatisfactorily. No copy in NYPL, and yet ten images (all from said reproductions) appear on their website.

Heath Robinson title.A Robinson title rarely seen in commerce."Mr. Heath Robinson's numerous decorations and illustrations display much charm and delicacy of execution, and they proclaim him a most worthy disciple of the modern school of penmen" (The Strand, reviewing The Poems of Edgar Allan Poe)."In the Poe drawings he embraces the [modern] style completely, not just as a follower of fashion, but adapting its sinuous outlines and rich textures to achieve a fine balance between illustration and decoration. In this book his experiments in composition and in the balancing of solid areas of black and white come to fruition, and in drawings such as those to 'The Bells' or 'the Haunted Palace' he had added to Beardsley's decorative values of line and contrast a feeling of rhythmical movement and grace" (Beare).Beare 17a.

      Basel: Niclaus Brillinger, 1900. Reprint of the 1567 edition. 3 double-page maps, 5 large woodcuts in the text. [12], 246, [6]pp. 1 vols. Folio. Modern vellum, covers a little bowed and soiled. Title-leaf repaired at inner margin and outer corner restored; final leaf likewise repaired at inner margin; text moderately darkened and occasional marginal foxing. Fine Facsimile Facsimile reprint of the Basel, 1567 edition of Herberstein's rare and early 16th-century Moscow travels from - which itself was the second edition in German of the original Latin RERUM MUSCOVITICARUM COMMENTARII (Vienna, 1549). Baron von Herberstein was Ambassador from Emperor Maximilian I to the Grand Prince Vasiley Ivanovic in 1517. It wasn't translated into English until 1851-1852, when it appeared as NOTES UPON RUSSIA, BEING A TRANSLATION FROM THE EARLIEST ACCOUNT OF THAT COUNTRY ... with Notes and Introduction by Richard Henry Major (London, Hakluyt Society, 1851). One salient feature of the Basel 1567 edition is the three striking double-page maps which enhance its interest.

        A volume of 48 Noshi-Gami (Noshigami), mainly color-printed copper and wood engravings

      Tokyo, Late Meiji Period (ca. 1900). IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. 4to. 240 x 200 mm. Contemporary wrappers with calligraphic inscription on front cover. 48 samples on 48 color-printed leaves Unique and highly curious hand-made Japanese book containing 48 samples of Noshi-gami, a gift-wrapping paper on which a good-luck Noshi (a white and red knot) is printed. A Noshi-gami is attached to a gift to express "good wishes." Our volume contains both copperplate and woodblock printed Noshi-gami made by Kadoya Dyeing Workshop in Tokyo. Noshi-gami were paper festoons for a formal gift. Originally the noshi were decoratively folded paper with a strip of dried abalone inside, an element symbolizing a happy occasion; in some instances strips of yellow paper were substituted for the abalone. Today, the noshi and mizuhiki string are often printed on the paper itself, as here. A typical noshi is composed of a narrow piece of yellow paper, which is a substitute for noshi-awabi, folded in a special way in a piece of white-and-red paper to form a hexagon. Very often, a noshi is replaced by a "Noshi-gami", a piece of paper on which an image of noshi is printed, or the word "no-shi" in Hiragana (the Japanese syllabary) are printed. (SOURCE: Louis Frederic, Japan encyclopedia, Harvard, 2002; Ajio Fukuda et al., Nihon Minzoku Daijiten, Tokyo, 2000. See also National Diet Library Newsletter No. 131, June 2003). For obvious reasons examples such as this are quite uncommon.

        Ladies' Dress Shoes of the Nineteenth Century

      1900. GREIG, T. Watson. Ladies' Dress Shoes of the Nineteenth Century. Illustrated with 22 full-page chromolithograph plates (frontispiece + 20 numbered plates + "finis"), depicting 63 (i.e. 64) pairs of ladies' shoes. Folio, 442 x 282 mm, bound in original publisher's red glazed boards with gilt title and illustrations of shoes. Edinburgh: D. Douglas, 1900. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a fine, complete copy, of one of the most eccentric Victorian books ever published. Most examples have been broken up by the print trade on account of the full-sized chromolithograph plates of ladies' shoes from the Victorian era. Attesting to the rarity of the complete set of plates, we draw attention to the fact that the New York Public Library sold reproductions of their copy of Greig's "Ladies' Dress Shoes;" although the fidelity of the reproductions is good, they do not compare to the vibrancy of these original chromolithographs. Almost nothing is known about the author and owner of this eccentric collection of Ladies' shoes. "Seeing his outstanding collection of shoes age and crumble, Greig commissioned a book to document the lot, to which he added meticulous notes about the former occupants" (Smithsonian, Design for Daily Life exhibition). Rebacked in matching red cloth.

        Fabrica de mosaicos hidráulicos de Quintana Hnos., México

      1900. [TILE CATALOG]. Fábrica de Mosaicos Hidráulicos de Quintana H[erma]nos. One text page. Illustrated with 115 chromolithographic plates. 8vo., 252 x 175 mm, bound in publisher's cloth-backed illustrated boards. México: Quintana Hermanos, ND. A catalogue of Mexican tiles from the factory of the Quintana Brothers, about which little seems to be known. The catalogue illustrates a wide array of mosaic tiles and borders including smooth and carved tiles, imitation marble and granite tiles, etc., all together representing a wide spectrum of geometrical and ornamental design. As well as being a particularly handsome design book, and an indication of the high level of sophistication in Mexico at the time, it is an excellent example of turn-of-the-century Mexican chromolithography. A very good copy.
