        Heath's Oddities

      Various, including Soffe, Spooner, Brookes, Treager, London - A collection of whimsical caricature plates created by the Heath brothers. N.d., circa 1820s and 30s. Folio, 36.5 by 28.5 cm. 68 mounted hand-colored caricature and humorous plates, including title page. As the two brothers had similar styles and many of the plates do not credit the artist, we do not always know who did what. Included are two complete series, "Spirited Subjects" and "Flowers of Loveliness", and a number of partial series and other miscellaneous prints. Who would not be smitten with "Spirited Subjects", in which bottles, glasses and other bar paraphernalia are animated into people? Perhaps ever slightly more convention is "Flowers of Loveliness", in which human subjects are in some way likened to flowers, or the flowers are somehow worked into the illustration in an imaginative manner. Other series drawn upon include "Music Pieces", "Newspapers", "First of September" and "Sporting Oddities". Quite a few plates not identified with a series have a sporting subject, and most often, shooting is the sport. Yet the subject matter ranges widely, taking in politics, culture, society, etiquette, etc. The red crushed morocco, which dates to about 1900, has gilt ruling, lettering and simple decoration. There are a few abrasions along the board edges, and typical edgewear, but overall, it is a handsome luxurious binding. The plates are mounted on heavy card stock, which adds to the luxuriance of the album, together with the gilt edging to these thick leaves.

        Tintype Photograph of the First African-American Medal of Honor Winner

      Full plate hand-painted tintype photograph of William H. Carney and his wife Susannah Carney, with the Sergeant wearing his Medal of Honor. Measuring 7.25" x 10". Scratched on the back: "Sgt. Wm. Carney, 54th Mass. Vols. 1900" (the date may be 1901). Left side corners clipped, flaking of the emulsion on and around his left leg and shoes, with some surface craquelure, and waviness to the tin, else very good condition.The Emancipation Proclamation (January 1, 1863) officially authorized recruiting black soldiers for the first time in the Civil War. That March, William Harvey Carney joined the all black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, commanded by 26 year-old Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. Because of Carney's education and leadership skills (he had studied to be a Preacher) he quickly rose to the rank of Sergeant. In July, the 54th Massachusetts was sent to James Island, South Carolina, where on July 18, Shaw offered to lead the charge against Fort Wagner (the attack on Fort Wagner was depicted in the film Glory). During the battle Shaw and his flag bearer were pinned down beneath the parapet of the fort. Trying to rally his men forward, Shaw and the flag bearer fell, both mortally wounded. In that moment, Carney seized the colors, prevented the flag from touching the ground, struggled up the parapet and, though wounded in the legs, chest, and arm, planted the colors at the top of the rampart. Despite his wounds and the heavy gunfire around him, Carney was able to keep the flag aloft, though pinned down until reinforcements arrived and the shredded unit was able to withdraw. Struggling back to Union lines while still carrying the colors, Carney collapsed saying: "Boys the old flag never touched the ground." He spent the next 11 months recuperating, but was never fit again, and because of his wounds, he received an honorable disability discharge in June, 1864.Carney's Medal of Honor citation reads: "When the color sergeant was shot down, this soldier grasped the flag, led the way to the parapet, and planted the colors thereon. When the troops fell back he brought off the flag, under a fierce fire in which he was twice severely wounded."Most Civil War Congressional Medals of Honor were awarded decades after the action, and while other African-Americans received theirs before Carney, his was for the earliest battle and he is unanimously acclaimed as "the first African-American Medal of Honor winner." The National Archives puts it plainly: "Sergeant William Carney of New Bedford, MA, became the first African-American awarded the Medal of Honor for Most distinguished gallantry in action..."A wonderful image. Rare. .

        Two Months in Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Jan. 18th to April 1st 1900.

      New York: , 1900. Quarto (260 × 199 mm). Contemporary red half morocco-grained skiver, marbled boards and endpapers, title gilt to the spine, raised bands, gilt devices to the compartments, top edge gilt. 85-page manuscript in a neat and highly legible hand, pages feint-ruled in pencil within border in red and blue ink; 8 mounted original photographs, 7 of them half-plate albumen prints from the studio of J.F. Coonley, captioning in the negative, the other a small snapshot; further illustrated with a number of halftone illustrations clipped from a guidebook, including a folding panorama of "Nassau from the Hotel Colonial", a number of images of shipboard life on the S. S. Saratoga on the voyage out, and a couple of views of New York to conclude. Minor wear to tips, albumen print mounted as the frontispiece a little chipped with some loss, text leaves lightly browned, but overall excellent An illustrated manuscript travelogue by dime novelist and "Prophetess of the proletariat", Laura Jean Libbey, describing her holiday in Nassau, undertaken from 18 January to 1 April 1900, with her friend Amelia. Libbey (1862–1924) was a prolific writer producing 82 novels, many of which were first published in serialised form in papers such as The New York Family Story Paper, The Fireside Companion, and the New York Ledger. "She was so prolific and popular with readers that she had several stories running at the same time in different story papers". Indeed "at the peak of her publishing career in the 1880s and 1890s Libbey claimed to earn between $60,000 and $75,000 per year. Her earnings enabled her to live most comfortably and to take numerous foreign tours", including a nine month grand tour of Europe and Egypt in 1892. Written in six chapters this is a comprehensive and highly readable account which provides extensive details about the attractions ("we paid a visit to the Phosphorescent Lake which can only be seen to advantage on a dark moonless night"); accommodation, ("we were driven to the Marine Villa, a pretty boarding house situated directly on the bay"); food ("the bananas formed my most favourite vegetable when fried in batter"); history (Nassau was "galvanized into life during the war of Rebellion when it became the head quarters of the blockade-gunning fleet"); geography ("The island is formed entirely of coral rock and the layer of soil upon it is so thin that it is wonderful that any vegetation can find nourishment"); industry ("the plant called Sisah ... when dried is made into bundles and then baled and sent North by steamer to be made into robes"); and customs of the people of Nassau ("at other times the society is rather mixed ... it is not considered quite "the thing" for ladies to attend the entertainments"). Libbey, amongst her accounts of many day trips, details visiting a sea garden; "we left our yacht and entering a little boat with a piece of glass set in the bottom were slowly rowed back and forth, looking down through the transparent water to the white sandy bottom on which were growing the most beautiful corals and seaweeds while big conch shells moved about among their roots and bright coloured fishes darted through their branches". Libbey also occasionally offers a more personal and less positive reaction to the city, "the cockroaches which infest the whole place were my greatest dread". The photographer Jacob Frank Coonley (1832–1915), who provided a number of the photographs which Libbey uses, moved to Nassau c. 1889.

        Snow in Iwashimizu-Hachiman Shrine. Kyoto. - Iwashimizu Hachimangu Yuki. - Schnee am Iwashimizu-Hachiman-Schrein. Kyoto. (Original Farbholzschnitt)

      Der Holzschnitt ist in einem guten bis sehr guten Zustand und ohne Mängel. Er zeigt eine wunderschöne Schneeszene, und ist sowohl in Japanischen Kanji (linker Rand) als Iwashimizu Hachimangu Yuki beschriftet, als auch auf Englisch am unteren Rand als Snow in Iwashimizu-Hachiman Shrine. Kyoto (Schnee am Iwashimizu-Hachiman-Schrein, Kyoto). Der Holzschnitt ist an zwei kleinen Punkten links und rechts oben auf einer etwas größeren, leichten Pappe fixiert. Das am oberen Rand an diese Pappe leicht angeklebte Passepartout hat an den beiden Seitenrändern verschiedene japanische Schriftzeichen. In den linken und rechten unteren Ecken des Passepartouts sind schwache Wasserränder sichtbar (siehe Abbildung), die jedoch keine Auswirkungen auf den tadellosen Holzschnitt haben. Asano Takeji (1900-1999), der auch als exzellenter Bildhauer herausstach, ist dafür bekannt, mehrere Serien von Drucken von Kyoto und Umgebung produziert zu haben. Die Signatur des Künstlers Takaji ga ist in der unteren rechten Bildecke zu finden. Der Druck trägt das rechteckige Siegel des Herausgebers Unsodo am rechten Rand, sowie die Bildhauer/Drucker-Siegel von Okura/Shimmi. Der Druck selbst ist undatiert, stammt aber vermutlich aus den 50er Jahren. Es ist bekannt, das Okura (der Bildhauer) in den 1950ern für Unsodo arbeitete. Shimmi, der Drucker, bestätigte Mitte 2000, dass diese Drucke aus den sehr frühen Ausgaben (gemeint sind vermutlich die Drucke der 50er Jahre) des Herausgebers stammen. Der Druck trägt außerdem das Gei-Wasserzeichen (gei ist das erste Kanji im Namen des Herausgebers Unsodo) in der oberen linken Ecke. Der Holzschnitt ist auf einem älteren, handgemachten Papier gedruckt. (Freie Übersetzung aus dem Englischen, siehe: http://www.jaodb.com/db/ItemDetail.asp?item=30910 Asano Takeji wurde 1900 in Kyoto geboren. Er unterzog sich einer langen und intensiven Kunstausbildung an verschiedenen Kunstschulen in Kyoto, die er 1923 abschloß. Einer seiner Lehrer war Tsuchida Bakusen. Im Gegensatz zu manchen anderen seiner Künstlerkollegen war Asano auf hohem technischen Niveau wenn es um die technisch-handwerkliche Umsetzung eines künstlerischen Entwurfs ging. Asano starb im Jahr 1999 im Alter von 99 Jahren. (zu Asano Takeji siehe: Merritt, Helen und Nanako Yamada: Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975, published by University of Hawaii Press, Honolulu, o.J.)

"His appearance and South American travels made him the model for Charles Gould in Nostromo, the greatest novel by his friend Joseph Conrad. (He had been prompt to hail the Polish-born novelist, and their friendship extended from 1897 until Conrad's death in 1924. The essay 'Inveni portum' is a moving obituary.)

        Fleurs de serre

      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 the style of Botticelli for this series as well as for the series Seasons . Made in a typically Art Nouveau style, the Flowers are part of a trend inherited from the pre-Raphaelites of the late 19th century who like to represent the woman against a backdrop of luxuriant vegetation. The curved lines that frame the representation blend into the flourishing floral decoration. The silhouette, an allegory dressed in the antique, stands behind the laurels, carrying at her side of daisies, blueberries, buttons of gold and yarrow. This type of lithographic series Had a decisive role in the spread of Art Nouveau, the graphic arts of that contemporary being declined in posters, almanacs and newspapers.environ 26,8x59cm une feuille

        Autograph letter signed.

      Bozen-Gries, 4. V. 1900. - 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. With autogr. envelope. To Betti Figdor in Obermais (Meran), cancelling a meeting due to his rheumatism: "Seitdem ich Ihren werthen Brief erhalten habe ich mich immer gefreut Sie sehen und begrüssen zu können. Leider hat mir aber mein Übel, ich leide an Fussrheumatismus, einen Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht. Ich wage es nicht einen grösseren Ausflug zu machen, und muss daher auf das Vergnügen verzichten [.]". - The Hungarian-born linguist and traveller Vámbéry set out from Constantinople in 1861 disguised as a Sunni dervish under the name of Reshit Efendi, journeying from Trebizond on the Black Sea to Tehran in Persia, where he joined a band of pilgrims returning from Mecca and spent several months with them travelling across Central Iran. He proceeded to Shiraz, through Ispahan, and in 1863 reached Khiva, Bokhara, and Samarkand. He returned to Constantinople in 1864, having maintained his disguise throughout this time. This was the first successful journey of its kind undertaken by a European through Armenia, Persia and Turkestan, which were then hermetically closed to westerners, and since it was necessary to avoid suspicion, Vámbéry could not take even fragmentary notes, except by stealth. His "Travels in Central Asia" were published in 1865 and made him an internationally renowned celebrity. In 2005 de-classified files in the Public Record Office (then the National Archives) revealed that Vámbéry had been employed by the British Foreign Office as an agent and spy whose task it was to combat Russian attempts at gaining ground in Central Asia and threatening the British position on the Indian sub-continent. In London, Vámbéry was acquainted with Bram Stoker, who claimed him as his consultant and inspiration for "Dracula".

        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.
