        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.

        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.

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]

        Photo Album]: Photo Album of Victorian America, with larger images

      1900 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 9.5" x 10". A collection of 35 collodion prints all measuring roughly 7.5" x 9.5", without captions. The album is lacking the front and rear boards with near fine photographs with some modest edgewear. A photo album containing large prints revolving around a New England mansion at the turn of the century. Although the home is not identified it was clearly owned by a wealthy family as seen by a photograph of a parlor with an extensive art gallery full of what look like significant works of art. The home itself can be seen in photographs throughout the album displaying the grounds, which include a log cabin, and a large front porch complete with hammocks. One photo shows a group of well-dressed men seated in rocking chairs and another shows one lady reading while another sews. There is a group photo of people sitting on the low branches of a tree and posing by the log cabin. A wonderful collection of large photographic prints displaying the stately grandeur of an early 20th Century American home. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
