        Mimic War

      New York: Edgar O. Clark, n.d., ca. 1900. Complete set of twenty-five six inch chromolithographed cardboard soldiers nailed to their wooden stands, in the original box and with the original fold-up tent. The uniforms represent the Spanish-American War. Here is a cannoneer, with foot soldiers, a naval contingent and the requisite marching band. One soldier bears a resemblance to Roosevelt himself. We note only three creases on the twenty-five soldiers; otherwise they are in fine, as new condition, each securely nailed to their original wooden bases. The tent has had a minor repair to the tab which keeps it upright, with a few old pinholes there suggesting a pin was used to close it before the tab was repaired. Overall a fine set in its original box with the lithographed cover. The box does have a couple of tears and lacks a small piece of the lid flap on one end else it is in very good condition. Beginning about 1857, sets of toy solders were produced on strips or sheets, to be cut out and assembled by the purchaser. About 1890, though, a process was developed to adhere lithographs to board, then nailing the feet to a small wooden block, making for a sturdy play set. Though McLoughlin Bros. was the leader in cardboard toy soldiers, Sowdon and Clark (and after Sowdon's death, Edgar O. Clark alone) was practically the only small firm to surpass McLoughlin's quality. Sources suggest only a few sets were issued, making them significantly rarer than their McLoughlin counterparts. Fine.

        Fleurs et photographies de Terre Sainte.

      - Jéruzalem, Boulos Meo, [N.D. (ca. 1900)]. Oblong folio (29.2 x 40.6 cm). Mounted photos. Bevelled, polished olive wood panels with carved vignette and wooden inlays. Later red morocco spine with gilt title.= The work consists of thick boards with, mounted, and captioned large full colour photos (sheet size 30.4 x 23.0 cm, actual photo size 25 x 18 cm) of towns and other places in the Holy Land, and still lifes of real, dried, flowers from nearby localities. The colours of the flowers are beautifully preserved. The photos show Jaffa, Jeruzalem, Bethlehem, and many other places. This is a very rare, large size copy of a work published in various editions by Boulos Meo. "a family of Italian origin that came to the Holy Land with the Crusades. Boulos Meo opened a shop near the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem in 1872, supplying souvenirs, photographs and postcards to an ever-increasing number of tourists. Books, pairing photographs of sacred places with collages of dried flowers from the sites on the facing pages, were popular in the late 19th century. Bound in olive wood, a material often used by the local craftsmen to make mementos, the albums combined views of the Holy Land with tangible elements of the earth. The Boulos Meo business later served as a cafe and a source for antiquities and Persian rugs, remaining open until 1994." (The Alexander Museum of Postal History and Philately: alexandercollection website). With a large, handwritten dedication to Sir Reginald Wingate Pascha, dated 3 juin 1818. "Sir Francis Reginald Wingate, 1st Baronet GCB, GCVO, GBE, KCMG, DSO, TD (1861-1953) was a British general and administrator in Egypt and the Sudan" (Wikipedia). Some wear to the panels with the inlay partly perished; some light foxing, but usually clean. A very good copy, with an interesting provenance. This edition should not be confused with the usually later editions, which also have olive wood panels and dried flowers, but measure only 11 by 17 cm, or even smaller, and are with or without photographs. This copy is of a very unusual, sumptuous size and we could not trace any other copy in the market. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - 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.

      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.

        [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).

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. Trivial spotting to prelims else internally clean; outside unmarked. A fine copy. 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.
