        Jugendstil design: original design from Vienna. "Holz- und Brandmal-Vorlage". Very large plates.

      - Jugendstil design: original design from Vienna. "Holz- und Brandmal-Vorlage". Very large plates. Vienna, Bier & Schöll, ca. 1900. 19 very large sheets (56 x 38 cm), numbered, with unique design. All but one in full colour, four with an identical, plain copy added (not counted), one tinted (for a total of 23 plates).l Each sheet shows a different, Jugendstil - or Art Nouveau - style design for applied art, such as a clock frame, wall or door decorations, leadlights, etc. The orientation is vertical. The Viennese firm Bier & Schöll specialized in applied art, and was active from the late 1800's until the 1920's. One plate is from another firm, Clement, Tournier & cie., in Geneva. The illustrator's logo, "P.P.", is stylized in the form of an Art Deco figurine. It's possible that the Geneva firm was the successor of Bier & Schöll. A very attractive set of fine, large plates.

        [TORRES STRAIT] Muralag man, Prince of Wales Island

      Circa 1900. Photographic glass magic lantern slide, 82 x 100 mm, no photographer's imprint, remnants of a contemporary label inscribed 'Warrior, Prince of Wales [Island] Pacific costume'; in fine condition. The subject wears a headdress of the type known as dari, and poses with his bow and arrow - a weapon used in Melanesian cultures but not, of course, by Australian Aborigines. This striking portrait may be attributed to either of the studios of O. Watson or St. Austell (Richard Nicholas), both active on Thursday Island in the early years of the twentieth century.

        Othmar Brioschi: Frühling in der römischen Campagna (Originalzeichnung)

      1900 - Pastellkreiden, Farbstifte und Bleistift auf Papier. 33 x 46,5 cm. Links unten signiert und bezeichnet: „O. Brioschi. Rom” BIOGRAFIE: Othmar Brioschi (1854 Wien - 1912 Rom) Als Sohn eines italienisch-österreichischen Theatermalers absolviert Othmar Brioschi eine der Familientradition entsprechende Ausbildung in München. Dort besucht er zugleich die Akademie, um sich in der Figuren- und Landschaftsmalerei fortzubilden. Zurück in Wien arbeitet Brioschi zunächst bei seinem Vater und tritt als Student der Akademie in die Meisterklasse für Landschaftsmalerei ein. 1882 ermöglicht ihm die Verleihung des großen Staatspreises einen zweijährigen Aufenthalt in Rom, wo er ab 1885 ständig wohnt. Unter den deutschsprachigen Künstlerkollegen genießt Brioschi hohes Ansehen und erhält 1905 eine Professur an der Accademia di San Luca. Die Stimmung der römischen Landschaft ist das zentrale Thema von Brioschis Kunst. Für seine minutiös ausgeführten Zeichnungen verwendet er bevorzugt getönte Papiere, seidig schimmernde Graphit- und Farbstifte sowie helle Aquarell- und Gouachefarben. In seinen vom Spätimpressionismus beeinflussten Ölgemälden setzt er die Farbe in pastosen Flecken nebeneinander und steigert so deren Leuchtkraft, wodurch das Licht zum primären Ausdrucksträger des Bildes wird. Obgleich sich Brioschi an topographische Vorgaben hält, erscheinen seine meist menschenleeren Darstellungen aufgrund gestreckter Formate, eigenwilliger Perspektiven und unkonventioneller Bildausschnitte nur mittelbar der Realität verpflichtet. Fast muten sie wie symbolistische Traumlandschaften an, die den Betrachter zu meditativer Versenkung einladen. Den Höhepunkt in Brioschis Schaffen bildet ein 1898 im Auftrag von Erzherzog Franz Ferdinand entstandener Zyklus mit 17 Ansichten aus dem Park der Villa d’Este in Tivoli. Elegisch und mystisch zugleich wirken seine Zeichnungen mit Motiven aus den weltberühmten Gartenanlagen, die schon in früheren Jahrhunderten Künstler aus ganz Europa inspiriert haben. Das in der vatikanischen Druckerei als bibliophiles Mappenwerk vervielfältigte Kompendium begründet Brioschis Ruf als einer der hervorragendsten österreichischen Landschaftsmaler in Italien um 1900.

        The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation [Fertilization] in the Vegetable Kingdom [Uncut]

      London: John Murray, 1900. Second Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. 8vo: viii,487,[1]pp, with one diagram, 109 tables. Original publisher's standard green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, black end papers, book plate on front paste down. As with first edition, spine title spells "fertilisation" with a "z," while title page uses an "s." The text of this edition remains unaltered up to p. 370, where the addition of a large footnote necessitated resetting of the remaining pages. A truly superlative example, completely uncut (unopened) and virtually pristine. Freeman 1260. Second Edition, fifth impression. Meant as a complement to "Fertlisation of Orchids," but "too technical and too detailed to command a wide sale." (Freeman) N.B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

      - N.d., circa 1900. The pen and ink drawing is 11 by 18 cm, oblong. Depicted are a few skaters in the foreground, one woman brought to her knees, and a sketchy crowd in the background. Not to be mistaken for the automaker industrialist who lived during the same time, the English artist Ford is best remembered for illustrations in the popular Andrew Lang colored fairy book series. Besides doing illustrations for books by Scott and Kipling, among many others, Ford did free-standing painting, some of which today hangs in museum collections. Matted. Light soiling by the edges.

        [Hawaiian fishes: seven rare publications with full-colour illustrations]

      Honolulu, various publishers including the Honolulu Aquarium, ca. 1900-1930. Seven items, as follows: one large, oblong atlas (30.0 x 22.7 cm) with photographic frontispiece, two text leaves, and 20 full-colour plates of Hawaiian fish. Printed wrappers; [AND] two small booklets and four (16.0 x 10.7 cm) colour printed envelopes acting as ‘postcards'; all six with leporello (concertina) full-colour fish and fishery printings (12 or 18-22 images each - on rectos and versos; one with an extra-full colour postcard loosely inserted). One booklet oblong (12.5 x 17.5 cm) with only 12 images and versos blank, in full green cloth with large pictorial gilt front cover and title "Hawaiian Fishes", the other booklet measuring 17.2 x 12.5 cm, with blue cloth boards, large gilt vignette on the front board and title "Fishes of Hawaii".= The first item is a special edition, probably published in very low numbers, by a Honolulu-based company supporting the Honolulu Seawater Aquarium. It contains a photoprint of the newly founded aquarium and, by permission of the U.S. Fish Commission, it includes the fine full-colour plates for David Starr Jordan and B. W. Eigenmann's rare report on the fishes and fisheries of the Hawaiian islands, published in 1902 in 250 copies only. All other items are also related to the Honolulu Aquarium. ‘The Aquarium was built in 1904 by Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Cooke on land denoted for the purpose by Mr. James B. Castle' (from the introductory texts). All items are meant for identification of the most popular and colourful fish in the aquarium, and as a souvenir of the visit to the aquarium. None is dated, but of the four envelopes, the oldest states, in the right top corner ‘Postage 1 cent without message', two slightly younger ones have ‘1 cent' replaced by ‘1½ cent', and the most recent one simply states ‘place stamp here'. Some light wear, the first item with some light damp staining at the outer top edge; one leporello partly torn at fold, otherwise a very good, unmarked set. All items are rare, especially in such a good condition. Dean I, p. 651 (for Jordan & Eigenmann).

Nach seinem Abschluss war er in verschiedenen Anstellungen als Musiklehrer tätig, verdiente damit jedoch zu wenig Geld. So verlegte er sich auf die Malerei, mit der seine wirtschaftliche Lage auch nicht viel besser wurde. Daher begann er für den Münchener Kunsthändler Jakob Anger zu arbeiten, der ihm regelmäßig für einen Hungerlohn Bilder abnahm. Der Schwerpunkt von Thomassins Schaffen waren bäuerliche Genreszenen und Küstenlandschaften.- Verso schwacher Stempel und alter Aufkleber der Galerie Hermes (Frankfurt und Wiesbaden) sowie Auktions-Inventarzettel vom Auktionshaus Dorotheum.- Aus der Sammlung Häusler, Kiel.

In recent half dark blue morocco with raised bands, gilt titles to spine and green cloth boards, top edge gilt, original pictorial cloth bound in at rear.

Winston Churchill's personal account of the first five months of the Boer War, which includes impressions on the Relief of Ladysmith, and also the story of WSC's capture, and dramatic escape from the Boers. He was captured while a military reporter, but fled his prison camp and travelled almost 300 miles to Portuguese Lourenço Marques in Delagoa Bay, with the assistance of an English mine manager. His escape made him a minor national hero for a time in Britain, though instead of returning home, he rejoined General Buller's army on its march to relieve the British at the Siege of Ladysmith and take Pretoria. He was one of the first British troops through, and in fact, alongside his cousin the Duke of Marlborough, was able to get ahead on horseback to demand and receive the surrender of 52 Boer guards from the prison camp.

        Presentation album of photographs by J.H. Lithgow, Launceston, Tasmania, 1900

      Oblong quarto, half morocco over gilt lettered cloth boards (rubbed, lower board discoloured), front paste-down with calligraphic manuscript presentation inscription 'Mr. & Mrs. R.W. Hart. With sincere wishes for their Happiness and Prosperity, from Mr. & Mrs. J.H. Lithgow. 17.4.1900'; containing [24] toned carbon print photographs in format 150 x 200 mm, mounted recto and verso of 12 album leaves of thick card, all with calligraphic captions beneath the image; scattered mild spotting to the mounts, the carbon prints all fine or near fine. J.H. Lithgow, a professional chemist in Launceston, was a talented amateur photographer and a member of the Northern Tasmanian Camera Club. Lithgow produced this highly artistic and breathtakingly beautiful album of his own photographs - all of them superb toned carbon prints of Tasmanian scenes (with the exception of the last, a Glenelg seacsape) - to present to the prominent Launceston couple, Mr. and Mrs. R.W. Hart, possibly on the occasion of their marriage, in April 1900. The colour of the prints alternates between various shades of blue, green, sepia and grey, and the subjects include the Salmon Ponds; New Norfolk; the Derwent; the Lachlan; Russell Falls; Collins Falls; Lady Franklin's willows; Quamby estate, near Launceston; Corra Linn; hop picking, and a fox hunt. Chris Long, in Natural Colour Photography in Australia 1895-1960 (an appendix to Gael Newton'sShades of Light online)notes that in 1907 Lithgow, in partnership with F.E. Burbury, acquired the first autochrome plates to arrive in Australia. The album of Lithgow's photographs we offer here is a magnificent example of pre-Federation amateur photography in Australia.

        [NEW GUINEA; MISSIONARY] Dictionnaire de la langue de Roro-Mekeo

      Unpublished manuscript. Undated, but circa 1900. Small quarto size notebook, 230 x 180 mm, bound in heavy boards covered in hessian cloth, the upper board with the blind stamped crest of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, Issoudun, front paste-down with a printed map of France laid down, manuscript title page (almost detached) 'Dictionnaire de la langue de Roro-Mekeo. J.M. Vitale Miss. du S.C.', unpaginated, containing approximately [200] leaves with manuscript entries in magenta ink recto and verso; Father Joseph Vitale's dictionary of Roro and Mekeo, Austronesian languages spoken by the indigenous people of Yule Island (the site of the Sacred Heart Mission) and the adjacent mainland on the southern coast of New Guinea; the pages divided into three columns and arranged alphabetically, with the French words and phrases in the left hand column and their equivalents in the centre and right hand columns; the binding has virtually disintegrated but the work is apparently complete, contained within the boards as a series of disbound quires; the pages are remarkably clean and well preserved. The Sacred Heart Mission at Yule Island was established in 1885, and Father Vitale was among the first group of missionaries to arrive there, working with the native Roro and Mekeo speakers both on Yule and at nearby stations from the 1890s until his death in 1947. His dictionary, which was never published, dates to the first generation of contact that the Roro and Mekeo people had with Europeans. It is very much a 'frontier' work, compiled in the field under trying conditions, and it records these languages as they would have been used prior to any external influence. A manuscript of paramount importance in the field of Austronesian linguistics.

        La lune à un mètre : Souvenir de l'Exposition 1900

      [Paris : Exposition Universelle, 1900]. Lithograph on tinted paper laid down on board, as issued; circular format, diameter 400 mm; a couple of surface marks and tiny amounts of paper loss at the right edge, otherwise fine; mounted in a glazed frame. A striking souvenir "poster" produced for the Exposition Universelle held in Paris between April and November, 1900. The design is based on an image from the groundbreaking film by Georges Méliès, La lune à un mètre (1898), more famously known by its alternative title Le rêve d'un astronome (The Astronomer's dream).It was used to advertise one of the most popular attractions at the exhibition, a powerful telescope known as La grande lunette. Constructed specifically for the exhibition by Paul Gautier, the telescope was the centrepiece of the Palais d'Optique, andwas advertised under the rubrique La lune à un mètre (The moon from a distance of one metre). With the aid of this telescope, views of the moon's surface were displayed on a giant screen; these images were produced by the astronomers Maurice Loewy and Pierre Henri Puiseux as a series of large photographs which were printed for the public in stereoscopic and carte de visite format. The Exposition Universelle, which received 50 million visitors, was a showcase for the technology of the present and future. This poster celebrates marvellous advancements in both science (La grande lunette was the world's largest refracting telescope) and the arts (by drawing its design from the most recent of inventions, the motion picture).

      - Bircher A 4515; VD 17, 23:000295W (3 copies); not in Balsiger; Berlin Kat.; Jammes, Cabinets de curiosités; Murray; Sloos, Warfare and the age of printing; for Faulhaber: DSB IV, pp. 549-552. Very rare first and only edition of a catalogue of military and other instruments, models of machines, plans, etc., that Faulhaber displayed in the "Kunstkammer" in his house in Ulm. Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635), taught mathematics at Ulm, where his family moved around 1461, after serving as vassals of the Abbot of Fulda. He became the most important of the "Cossists", mathematicians concerned with algebra. After publishing his first arithmetic text, Faulhaber founded his own school in Ulm in 1600, which grew into an internationally famous educational institute for higher mathematical sciences. He later added an artillery and engineering school. Descartes came to study with him, and Faulhaber had a lively contact with Kepler. Applying mathematics to military engineering, the building of fortifications and the art of fire-arms, Faulhaber was also much in demand as fortification engineer, receiving commissions from the King of Sweden and many others. He published a large number of mathematical works, mostly in German, and invented a number of instruments and machines.Two different readers have checked off items in the catalogue, perhaps indicating those in their own collections.In very good condition.

        LORD JIM

      1900. [a fine copy] A Tale. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1900. Original light green cloth decorated in black. First Edition of Conrad's fifth (and many would say his greatest) book, the psychological study of a mariner trying to recover his lost honor. Conrad planned to write only a short story when he began LORD JIM, with an eye toward forming a volume consisting of it, "Youth" and "Heart of Darkness"; however, once he got going, the story lengthened into six times its conceived size, and of course it had to become a book unto itself.~Published in an edition of 2,105 domestic copies in October 1900, LORD JIM was bound up without an ad catalogue -- so copies do not "vary" by ad date, like the later YOUTH. This is a remarkably clean copy, with virtually no wear and scarcely any soil -- FINE, other than some light foxing on the first few leaves, and on the page edges; there is a faint endpaper signature dated "Xmas 1900". We find LORD JIM to be the toughest of Conrad's first editions to find in fine condition. Cagle A5a.1.
