      1900. 2¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten mit dem Ausdruck seines Bedauerns, sich nicht früher "mit den von Ihnen gestellten Fragen" beschäftigt haben zu können: "Jetzt habe ich dieses wohl gethan, vermag es aber nicht mich über den Werth oder Unwerth von Kunstschulen u. Akademien bestimmend auszusprechen, da ich diese ganzen Verhältnisse zu wenig kenne u. nie in der Lage war mich mit einer mir sehr fern liegenden Lehrtätigkeit zu beschäftigen. Ich glaube jedoch dem 'Freund' in dem Artikel über 'Hauptschulen' mich in vielen seiner interessanten Ausführungen mit meiner Meinung anschließen zu können [...]". - Alexander Frh. von Gleichen-Rußwurm - der Sohn von Schillers Enkel, dem Maler Ludwig von Gleichen-Rußwurm, und somit Schillers Urenkel - hatte Kontakt zu u. a. Heinrich Mann und Friedrich Lienhard, "bemühte sich, die idealistisch-humanitären Ideen der Klassik weiterleben zu lassen, und war Biograph sowie Interpret Schillers. Er schrieb Dramen, Gedichte, Romane ('Vergeltung', 1902; 'Tragödie der Schönheit', 1914; 'Feinde ringsum', 1915; 'Die Macher und die Macht', 1915), Novellen sowie kulturphilosophische und kulturhistorische Abhandlungen; sein bekanntestes Werk ist 'Sieg der Freude. Eine Ästhetik des praktischen Lebens' (1909). 1880 stiftete er zusammen mit seinem Vater die Papiere des Schillerarchivs zur Gründung des Goethe- und Schiller-Archivs in Weimar" (DBE). - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr.

        Photo Album]: Nainital India Summer Resort 1890s

      India 1900 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 11". Brown leather with gilt detail. A collection of 23 sepia toned photographs measuring between 4.5" x 6" and 6" x 8", some with captions, as well as one postcard. Photographs are very good or better with some waviness and faint spotting in a very good minus album with worn corners, a page detached but present, and lacking the spine. A photo album depicting the summer retreat of Nainital, India, located in the lake district of Uttarakhand near the mountain of Nanda Devi Massif, during the 1890s. The album shows the trip up to the region with large photos of the Indian landscape showing the lakes and mountains of Nainital. There are photos of British tourists at the resort, complete with handwritten captions identifying each person in the group photo, as well as native Indians and the Nainital bazaar. These photos were taken after the town was rebuilt in the 1880s after falling victim to a "landslip." Not only is the region known for its natural beauty and as a way to beat the brutal Indian summer, it is also renowned for its prestigious educational institutions, one of which is shown here captioned as "Girl's School in Nainital." A modest but interesting collection of a British summer holiday in the mountains of India with relatively large images.

        Die Englische Baukunst der Gegenwart. Beispiele Neuer Englischer Profanbauten.

      Leipzig and Berlin: Cosmos 1900 - First edition. First livraison only (of four). Folio. vi, 68 pp. Publisher's russet cloth backed portfolio, printed text to the upper cover, flaps detached but present, the text block in plain card wrappers. 27 magnificent large photographic plates of contemporary architectural subjects captioned with the name of the architect to the lower right corner. Wear to the edges of the case and the card wrappers of text, the contents otherwise very good. Published in four livraisons between 1900 and 1902, predating Muthesius' most famous architectural survey "Das Englische Haus" - the first edition of which appeared in 1904-5. Providing a wonderful record of British buildings built in the late years of the 19th century, this first part roughly comprises the opening third of the text and the first quarter of the illustrations of the full complement. The photographic subjects include interiors and exteriors of several London private residences, but also workers' homes in Port Sunlight and public buildings such as offices, shops, educational establishments and libraries in places such as Newark, Glasgow, Leicester, Birmingham and Chester. Apparently much scarcer than "Das Englische Haus", Worldcat shows only one copy and Copac another three.

        Speeches and Addresses of William McKinley.

      New York: Doubleday & McClure, 1900. First edition. Octavo, presentation binding original three quarters leather. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page in black ink as president, "For Hon. Elihu Root, with sincere regards, William McKinley." The recipient Elihu Root served as the Secretary of War under both McKinley andRoosevelt. He moved frequently between high-level appointed government positions in Washington, D.C.and private-sector legal practice in New York City. For that reason, he is sometimes considered to be the prototype of the 20th century political "wise man," advising presidents on a range of foreign and domestic issues. He was elected by the state legislature as a U.S. Senator from New York and served one term, 1909-1915. Alfred McCoy argues that Root was the first "foreign policy grandmaster" in American history, and that Root more than any other figure is responsible for transforming America into a world power. According to McCoy, Root devoted his time as Secretary of State and as a Senator to ensuring that the United States would have a consistent presence in world affairs, and Root helped to establish the Special Relationship between the United States and Great Britain. Root helped to ensure that powerful business interests and the intellectual elite supported an interventionist foreign policy. Root was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1912 as a result of his work to bring nations together through arbitration and cooperation. A remarkable association copy. William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897, until his assassination in September 1901, six months into his second term. McKinley led the United States in the Spanish-American War, raised protective tariffs to promote American industry, and maintained the nation on the gold standard in a rejection of inflationary proposals.

        Right Whale, (Plate 65).

      Vienna: Gerold & Son, ca. 1900. Color lithograph. I just love this image - the happy old fellow cavorting in Arctic seas, with no idea of the trouble he's about to encounter. Gerold & Son were an old Austrian printing firm. Between 1880 and the 1920s they produced "Hartinger's Wall Plates for the Education in Natural History," a series of zoological and botanical chromolithographs designed for educational use in schools. This delightful image by Joseph Fleischmann shows a right whale, floating impossibly high in the water (for educational reasons, I'm sure) with a whale boat bearing down and the mother ship in the distance. As befits its subject, the lithograph is huge, measuring 28 x 38 1/2 inches. Very good condition.

        Fleurs des champs

      1900 - - s.d. (circa 1900), 26,8x59cm, une feuille. - 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. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] 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.

The album shows snapshots of well-dressed ladies and gentleman exploring California with train rides, boating, and beach visits, complete with sun hats and parasols, as well as photos of men at a shooting range. The pictures seem to be taken by a talented amateur photographer who posed friends. Photos include those of ladies playing guitar and mandolin, the group posing while applying makeup, combing a man's hair, and shaving another man's face, and one risque photo of two young ladies, one of whom is revealing a finely turned ankle. There are also group photos of people posing by cliffs and in wooded areas.

        Speeches and Addresses of William McKinley.

      New York: Doubleday & McClure, 1900. First edition. Octavo, presentation binding original three quarters leather. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page in black ink as president, "For Hon. Elihu Root, with sincere regards, William McKinley." The recipient Elihu Root served as the Secretary of War under both McKinley andRoosevelt. He moved frequently between high-level appointed government positions in Washington, D.C.and private-sector legal practice in New York City. For that reason, he is sometimes considered to be the prototype of the 20th century political "wise man," advising presidents on a range of foreign and domestic issues. He was elected by the state legislature as a U.S. Senator from New York and served one term, 1909-1915. Alfred McCoy argues that Root was the first "foreign policy grandmaster" in American history, and that Root more than any other figure is responsible for transforming America into a world power. According to McCoy, Root devoted his time as Secretary of State and as a Senator to ensuring that the United States would have a consistent presence in world affairs, and Root helped to establish the Special Relationship between the United States and Great Britain. Root helped to ensure that powerful business interests and the intellectual elite supported an interventionist foreign policy. Root was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1912 as a result of his work to bring nations together through arbitration and cooperation. A remarkable association copy. William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897, until his assassination in September 1901, six months into his second term. McKinley led the United States in the Spanish-American War, raised protective tariffs to promote American industry, and maintained the nation on the gold standard in a rejection of inflationary proposals.

Richly decorated by Jugendstil Artist Melchior Lechter'woodcuts on Japan paper. One of 400 copies. Slight creasing to corners and shelfwear. Otherwise tight copy in wraps.

        Een schoone historie en miraculeuze geschiedenis van den ridder met de zwaan. Die te Nymegen in Gelderland te scheep kwam, by het geleide van eene zwaan, uit den landen Lilefoort, hetwelk men zegt te wezen: Ryssel, Douway en Orchy, gelegen in Vlaanderen. Amsterdam, B. Koene, [ca. 1820].

      "4º: A-E 4, 20 ongepagineerde bladen, titelvignet met de afbeelding van een gans (of een eend?) en drie houtsneden in de tekst Oorspr. papieren omslag Boekenogen (herdruk) p.131 Q; Forum IV, 1900; Mateboer 612, 614 (andere vingerafdrukken); Muller 693; Saalmink II, p.1738; de Vries 140; Waller 776 Boekenogen, Eene schone ende miraculeuse historie vanden Ridder metter Swane [..] (Leiden 1931); Debaene, De Nederlandse volksboeken. Ontstaan en geschiedenis van de Nederlandse prozaromans, gedrukt tussen 1475 en 1540 (Hulst 1977)"."Volksboekje, grotendeels in gotische letter gedrukt, waarin de middeleeuwse legende van Helias de zwaanridder wordt verhaald. Tijdens zijn avonturen wordt Helias vergezeld door een zwaan die in werkelijkheid zijn broer is. De oudst bewaarde druk van de 'Ridder metter Swane' dateert van 1651, maar uit de daar achterin geplaatste approbatie, gedateerd Brussel 2 februari 1547, valt af te leiden dat er een zestiende-eeuwse druk moet hebben bestaan. Deze approbatie is in de latere drukken steeds herhaald, zo ook in deze negentiende-eeuwse uitgaaf, alleen is abusievelijk in plaats van 1547 als jaartal 1543 vermeld."

        Manuel et catalogues officiels de la section de Ceylan. Avec cartes et illustrations.

      - Colombo, George J. A. Skeen, Imprimerie Nationale, Ceylan, 1900. 8vo. Original colour printed boards with green cloth back-strip, illustrated insides of the boards; pp. xxiv, 166, [2, blank], all pages within printed red double-fillets, with a fine photogravure frontispiece, tinted in green, after a photo by Henry Cave with tissue guard, two colour-lithographic maps, 24 plates after photos, numerous photographic illustrations in the text; extremities minimally rubbed, a few negligible spots here and there, light toning to maps, otherwise a fine copy. Very rare first edition of the official exhibition catalogue of Ceylon at the Paris World Fair of 1900, lavishly produced and illustrated by George Justin Athelstan Skeen, the Ceylon Government printer from 1881 to 1906, who exhibited his own products at the fair. One section of the Sri Lankan fair stand was devoted to photography, and all photographers exhibiting contributed to the book: Cane (author of Golden Tips), Skeen, A.W. Andree & Co, and A. W. A. Plate & Co., as well as Andree & Sligh Ltd, the latter being responsible for the colour printing of the binding. The company applied the then pioneering three-colour printing technique to be used soon afterwards in A. & C. Black colour books. Of course the main focus of this volume is tea production and export; however, all other aspects of Sri Lanka are described and illustrated, from ethnography and society, infrastructure and agriculture, commerce, art and natural history, with some impressive scenes of elephants working, being washed and in the wild. We were able to locate copies at Harvard and in France only; not in COPAC. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
