        AUTOBIOGRAPHICA, WITH A GOSSIP ON THE ART OF PRINTING IN COLOURS

      N.P. Privately printed, 1900. large folio. publisher's half brown morocco with cloth-covered boards, spine gilt, top edge gilt. (ii), 32, (2) pages, 5 plates. First edition, one of a few copies printed by Vaughan's son in memory of his father (St Bride Catalogue p.921). This copy is inscribed by Vaughan on the front free end paper. W.E. Vaughan 1825 - ca. 1900) was a Brighton print dealer, the largest dealer south of London in the last half of the 19th century. His reminiscences deal with his business and the aesthetic aspects of hand-coloured prints. The five prints are excellent chromolithographs of famous 18th century prints. Levis, page 185-186, states that "this volume is quite rare. I have never seen but one copy." On page 32 is listed an obituary notice that appeared in The Times: "Collectors of coloured prints will hear with regret of the death of Mr. W.E. Vaughan, the well-known print dealer of Brighton, which occurred last week. There are few connoisseurs who have not added to their stores from his large and curious stock, and his pleasant room has been visited by most of the notables of the reign. Descended from a good old Welsh family, Mr. Vaughan had yet to fight his way up from a humble station. A gilder by trade, he early followed the bent of his taste for Bartolozzi's work, and every penny he could spare was spent on the master of stipple. At that time Vaughan had few competitors, and it was not until late years that he startled the sale-rooms by giving what was then the unheard-of price of £70 for a coloured engraving of 'Miss Farren.' He lived to have bid more than double that sum for similar prints. Mr. Vaughan's judgement was so good than in any disputed point his opinion was frequently accepted as conclusive by the presiding powers at the London sale-rooms, and as his character was as high as his eye was correct, purchasers of his stock always got good value for their money. Quick in sympathy, of gracious manner, and with a mind stored with an extroardinary variety of knowledge, Mr. Vaughan will be long remembered and regretted by all lovers of the subject to which he devoted his uncommon taste and high integrity." Boobplate on front pastedown. Minor rubbing along edges.

        Pencil Sketch of the artists Mother. Head and shoulders and in side on profile. c1905.

      - Beautiful Pencil Sketch of the artists Mother? Head and shoulders in side on profile. Measures 25 x 17.5 cm [and 46 x 35 with mount]. Very Good Condition. Not signed. But his inimitable style and guaranteed genuine. Dates to about 1900-1905. From the date of a similar image of his brother published in the 1906 "Studio" Art publication. * The artist died tragically be self inflicted wounds after a serious depression brought on by loss of eyesight in his later years in 1937. He was renowned for his magnificent animal paintings and illustrated an edition of Kipling's "Jungle Book" and also "The Fables Of Aesop". in the early 20th century. Also a number of fantasy and outlandish natural history images were produced by him. Influenced by the Japanese School of the late 19th century. A sketch similar was done of his brother Maurice who also died tragically in his youth he committed suicide in 1908 by taking poison. The sketch of his brother was illustrated in an issue of "The Studio" in 1905/6 and an example is sent with this image and we therefor date this to a similar period. This is believed to have been bought from Abbot and Holder sometime in the 1970's by an art lecturer and modern art historian at the Courtauld Institute in London. John J. Gibson.

        Toxemia Explained + A Stuffed Club + Philosophy of Health (1900-1929) (The Works of Dr. John Henry Tilden) (64 piece set)

      J.H. Tilden. 1900 - 64 piece set. The collected work of Dr. John H. Tilden. Including: 1) Toxemia explained: the true interpretation of the cause of disease. (1926, 1st ed. Bound in publisher's boards, with Tilden's photo mounted on front.); 2) The Stuffed Club, vols. 1-10 & 14-15; published 1900-1925 (12 volumes bound in cloth); 3) Philosophy of Health; vols. 22-24, 26, 29 & 30 (published 1922 - 1929). Stable bound, in original wrappers in 51 parts. 12 volumes of the Stuffed Club are bound in cloth. Generally they have good bindings and covers. Two volumes have weakened gutters. Gold Club embossed on front covers. Minor marginalia. John Henry Tilden (1851 - 1940) was an American doctor now best known in circles of alternative healthcare for his criticism of pharmaceutics and for his theory explaining disease via his theory of "toxaemia". Tilden thought that self-intoxication through eating the wrong foods, overeating, the consumption of too many drugs or stimulants, and emotional and mental stress resulted in impaired health. In many ways, Tilden's arguments were ahead of his time. His prescriptions for moderate and healthy eating are echoed in modern dieticians and nutritionists. Tilden's book, Toxemia Explained contains his theory of metabolic disease caused by harmful bacteria resulting from poor health habits. Tilden published the Stuffed Club, a magazine devoted to promoting his naturalistic and dietary medical treatments. The magazine was later renamed the Philosophy of Health magazine. (And lastly "Health Review and Critique.") This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Back wrapper has tear. First three leaves far from pristine. Book broke into two sections. Marcus Hast was a London cantor and composer. He was born at Warsaw in 1840.

        Fleurs des champs

      s.d. (circa 1900), 26,8x59cm, une feuille. s.d. (circa 1900), 26,8x59cm, une feuille. - Lithograph laminated on cardboard. About 1900. It is part of a series of four symbolic female representations, called Flowers , which includes Flowers of the Mountain, Flowers of the Fields, Flowers of Water and Flowers of Greenhouse . Signed lower right in the stone. According to watercolors exhibited at the Salon des Artistes from 1893 to 1941. Elisabeth Sonrel, born in 1874 in Tours, studied at the Beaux-Arts in Paris in the studio of the painter Jules Lefebvre. An artist with Symbolist affinities, she draws her inspiration from Renaissance painting, notably in the style of Botticelli for this series as well as for the series Seasons . Realized in a typically Art Nouveau style, the Flowers are part of a trend inherited from the pre-Raphaelites of the second half of the 19th century, who like to represent the woman against a backdrop of luxuriant vegetation. The curved lines that frame the representation blend in with the abundant floral decoration, and the silhouette, an allegory dressed in the antique style, is detached from a rural landscape surrounded by daisies, blueberries, gold buttons and yarrow. This type of lithographic series ( Flowers, Seasons) played a decisive role in the spread of Art Nouveau, and the graphic arts of that contemporary were declined in posters, almanacs and newspapers.   - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lithographie contrecollée sur carton faisant partie d'une série de quatre représentations symboliques féminines, intitulée Fleurs, qui regroupe Fleurs de montagne, Fleurs des champs, Fleurs des eaux et Fleurs de serre. Signée en bas à droite dans la pierre. D'après des aquarelles exposées au Salon des Artistes de 1893 à 1941. Elisabeth Sonrel, née en 1874 à Tours, étudie aux Beaux-Arts de Paris dans l'atelier du peintre Jules Lefebvre. Artiste aux affinités symbolistes, elle puise son inspiration dans la peinture Renaissance et notamment dans le style de Botticelli pour cette série ainsi que pour la série Saisons. Réalisées dans un style typiquement Art Nouveau, les Fleurs s'inscrivent dans une tendance héritée des préraphaélites de la deuxième moitié du XIXe  siècle, qui aiment à représenter la femme sur fond de végétation luxuriante. Les lignes courbes qui encadrent la représentation se fondent dans le décor floral foisonnant et la silhouette, allégorie habillée à l'antique, se détache d'un paysage champêtre, entourée de pâquerettes, bleuets, de boutons d'or et d'achillées. Ce type de séries lithographiques (Fleurs, Saisons) eut un rôle déterminant dans la diffusion de l'Art nouveau, les arts graphiques de cette époque étant déclinés en affiches, almanachs et journaux.     une feuille

        Autograph Letter Signed, "Jph. Conrad," to Doubleday, McClure and Co representative James MacArthur

      "The Pent" [Stanford near Hythe], 1900. 4 pages. 12mo. Old folds, minor toning. 4 pages. 12mo. ON LORD JIM, AGAINST AUTHOR PHOTOS, AND BEGINNING "TYPHOON" A terrific, unpublished Conrad letter, being a reply to James MacArthur, the London representative of the American publisher of Lord Jim, expressing ambivalence about that novel; making clear his distaste for author photographs; and mentioning that he's begun work on "Typhoon." In part: "I am glad you think well of Jim from samples. I am in such a state of muddle about it myself that I have given up thinking. Moreover what's done can not be undone. As to your request you must really pardon me. I haven't a photograph-and-a photograph anyhow is a beastly thing even if I had one. If the public wants a photograph let them have it of course but I should think any sort of photograph would do. I have no objection but I won't have anything to do with it. I really think too much of my prose to throw photographs into the scale in which public favours are weighed. Indeed I have not forgotten the pledge; I keep that pleasure before me. I've just started a short story (a real one this time-not an incipient novel) and when I've murdered that I shall appear and claim the lunch...." The first American edition of Lord Jim was published October 31 by Doubleday, McClure and Company, though its serialization in Blackwood's was not complete until November. The American edition did not include a photograph of the author. The "short story" Conrad refers to would have been the novella "Typhoon," which he began in mid-September and finished in January 1901, though which did not begin to appear in Blackwood's until the following year (Najdez p 306 & p 311). Scottish born James MacArthur (1866-1909) founded and co-edited the New York magazine Bookman from 1894-1899, for which he had favorably reviewed Conrad's first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895. His tenure with Doubleday was brief; in London as the publisher's representative in 1900, MacArthur returned to the U.S. in 1901 and took a position with Harper's, on behalf of which he would later correspond with and solicit material from Conrad.

        Académie d'homme 2.

      Original pencil drawing, heightened with ink (mixed). Signature stamp of the artist's signature in the lower right corner of the work, and signature stamp of the workshop at the back. This drawing is part of a series of ten studies for Bertin to 1920-1925. Very nice condition. Provenance: the artist's studio, referenced to catalog Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition. You can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay or the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc.. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        The Baths of Caracalla - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, 1900.

      Heliogravure naar het schilderij (Opus CCCLVI) van Lourens Alma-Tadema, uitgegeven in 1900 door Arthur Tooth & Sons. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 75,6 x 47 cm.Dit werk kwam tot stand in het jaar dat Alma-Tadema in Engeland werd geridderd. The Baths of Caracalla werd zijn belangrijkste schilderij voor de zomertentoonstelling van de Royal Academy in 1899.In The Times schreef een recensent dat dit prachtige ?jewel-like work? archeologisch geheel correct is. Alma-Tadema baseerde zich daarvoor op een in 1897 verschenen boek over de ru?nes en opgravingen in Rome, waarin de magnifieke zuilen en de marmeren boot (in het midden van de afbeelding) in de Thermen van Caracalla, nauwkeurig werden beschreven.Alma-Tadema zelf zei over dit werk: ?It does seem to me that The Baths of Caracalla does show the different sides of my art, does exhibit its best qualities at their best... The picture, like much of my recent work, is a picture of ancient Rome as it was, and for this work of reconstruction I have had to get my information mainly from archaeological drawings. I was occupied with the picture for two years, and when it came back to my studio from the Academy I found that it wanted some altering and I worked at it again for some time with help of pencil drawings and models.?De kollossale zuil in de voorstelling moet gezien worden als een symbool van onvergankelijkheid, uittorenend boven de zorgeloze fratsen van de badende figuren.Inspiratie voor de voorstelling haalde Alma-Tadema vermoedelijk uit een gedicht van Alfred Lord Tennyson: ?A Court, compact of lucid marbles, bossed with the lengths of classic frieze, with ample awnings gay, betwixt the pillars and great urns of flowers, the muses and graces, grouped in threes.Prijs: ?4.150,- (incl. lijst).

        Chinoiseries / Costumes d'Antan

      (France / China 1900 - Octavo. (22)pp. Album of Chinese landscapes in original watercolors, facing depictions of women's antique costumes painted on silk, interleaved with tissue. "Chinoiserie" refers to European art characterized by imagery of a romanticized China, a notion that similarly underpins the genre of costume books, which presented foreign fashion through a European lens. It appears that the brightly-colored landscapes in this album were done later than the silk paintings, most likely by a Western artist. Included are market scenes, depictions of boats on a river, and pagodas. These European stylings contrast with the depictions of Chinese fashion opposite them, bringing a stark juxtaposition of East and West not often seen in costume books. The delicate paintings of costumes on silk are done in a much more traditional Chinese style. Great attention is paid to details, such as the knotted red and green silk cords worn around the women's waists, floral hair ornaments, and the subtle patterns of their loose-sleeved robes. One woman carries a basket of flowers, another poses beside a deer, and one is dressed as a warrior with a sword, in a jacket and loose trousers, tying on her knee guards. The costumes are colored in soft shades of blue, pink, and green. Very fine in soft gilt-titled white calf with raised bands on the spine, blind-tooled with decorative rules. Housed in a flannel-lined box. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Housed in a custom blue quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Contemporary globe-shaped advertisement for the book and various newspaper articles about the voyage and Slocum's life laid in. Spine slightly darkened, small mark to upper tip of front cover, some speckling to rear cover, internally fresh. An exceptionally nice copy. Half-tone frontispiece, 64 illustrations. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to American Polynesian ethnologist and diplomat William Churchill, and his wife Llewella, on the front free endpaper: "To Genl and Mrs Churchill in kind recollection of our meeting in Samoa 1896 and again New York this April 5th 1900. Joshua Slocum." A fascinating association copy for this "classic account of a small boat voyage" (Toy): William Churchill (1859-1920) was appointed American consul general to Samoa in 1896, in which capacity he hosted Slocum when he made landfall there on 16 July 1896, a meeting Slocum records in this book: "There was a lady's hand in things about the consulate at Samoa. Mrs Churchill picked the crew for the general's boat, and saw to it that they wore a smart uniform and that they could sing the Samoan boatsong, which in the first week Mrs Churchill herself could sing like a native girl" (p. 154). Churchill was a brilliant scholar, and was acknowledged as the foremost authority on Polynesian culture by local chiefs and foreign missionaries alike, but was widely considered an ineffective administrator, and was recalled in the lead-up to the Second Samoan Civil War (1898-9) as his reports were considered overly sympathetic to tribal concerns. Churchill suffered a nervous breakdown as a result, but during his recuperation wrote his most famous work, Polynesian Wanderings (1912), which analysed the languages of the Polynesian peoples and demonstrated that they had originated in Indonesia.

Dies ist Nummer 394." - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung.

        [Petit livre de Priere]

      S.l. (France), n.d. (ca. 1900). Very good. 8vo. 72 pp. numbered in pencil in upper corners, of which 3 numbered pages are blank; front and back of the textblock are padded with unnumbered blank leaves. Contemporary French "repousse" binding in the Art Nouveau style: large interlocking leaves and flowers, with gilt fillets; comb-marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, smooth spine unlettered. A volume of great charm and considerable bibliographical interest: the binding was executed in the "Cuir-cisele" (cut leather) manner. Cuir-cisele is a decorative technique in which a knife is used to cut a low relief design into the leather binding. The positive forms are left intact while the negative space has been cut away. "On the leather surface we see a design, sometimes simple, sometimes elaborate, which is not impressed on it with stamps or dies, but worked freely and directly by the craftsman by means of a simple pointed tool, blunt or sharp. In this simple way he either cut, scratcched, or merely engraved by pressure the outline of his decorative design; very often he would then stipple the background with some other simple tool, so as to make the contours of his design stand out more clearly" (SOURCE: E.P. Goldschmidt, "Some Cuir-Cisele Bookbindings in English Libraries" in: The Library, Fourth Series, Vol. XIII, no. 4, March, 1933, p. 337). The text is likewise curious: the pages were created by means of lithography, and colored throughout with watercolor by an expert hand. No title-page was ever bound herein. The entire production seems to have been a very personal one. The prayers include: Prière pendant la Sainte Messe / Prière pendant l'Offertoire / Préface commune / Mémoire des vivants / Mémoire des défunts / Oremus / Messe de mariage. In excellent state, suitable for exhibition and study.

Bookseller ticket of Monsieur Hautecoeur to front paste-down. 6 leaves toward rear with horizontal discoloration along top edge, occasionally just touching text of the running title. An overall VG - VG+ item.. 25 leaves of stiff hinged card stock, with a ~3-3/4" [9.6 cm] x 6" [15.2 cm] albumen photograph to each side [i.e., 50 total], each housed within a ornamental border printed in blue. Running title: Exposition Universelle de 1900. Each image captioned underneath [in French]. Album oblong format: 6-3/8" [16 cm] x 9" [23 cm]. "The Exposition Universelle of 1900 was a world's fair held in Paris, France, from 14 April to 12 November 1900, to celebrate the achievements of the past century and to accelerate development into the next. The style that was universally present in the Exposition was Art Nouveau. The fair, visited by nearly 50 million, displayed many machines, inventions, and architecture that are now nearly universally known, including the Grande Roue de Paris Ferris wheel, Russian nesting dolls, diesel engines, talking films, escalators, and the telegraphone (the first magnetic audio recorder)." [Wiki]. This album one, no doubt, of a number of commercially produced photograph albums documenting the Exposition. The volume contains, primarily, general exterior views of the major exposition buildings including the Grand Palais, Petit Palais, the Eiffel Tower and many of the numerous Palais des Nations. A rather scarce item.. we don't find this specific album recorded on OCLC, though 2 OCLC records list Albert Hautecoeur Exposition photo ablums, each in a single copy [the first, with 18 leaves, at the CSL (Sutro) and the second, as part of a pair of albums with 76 images total, at the Getty].
