INSCRIBED TO CUNNINGHAME GRAHAM. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Conrad on the front free endpaper: "To R.B. Cunninghame Graham, affectionately from the Author." Conrad's superb novel of the east, inscribed to a cherished and influential friend, R.B. Cunninghame Graham sometime, M.P., rancher, author, aristocrat and socialist, upon whose knowledge of South America Conrad drew while writing Nostromo. "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.) He contributed elements to Etchingham Granger, the central character in The Inheritors (1901), by Conrad and F. M. Hueffer" (ODNB). In 1899, Conrad had initially intended to dedicate the volume of stories containing Heart of Darkness to Cunninghame Graham, but when published, as Youth and Other Stories, that book was dedicated to Conrad's wife Jessie. Conrad later dedicated Typhoon to Cunninghame Graham. "A particularly sustaining friendship was with R. B. Cunninghame Graham, the aristocratic socialist and adventurer" (ibid).

        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.

      - "Indian summer in upper Bavaria" original oil painting on wooden panel approx48,5x64,5cm; lower right signed "W.Georgi" and dated "Sept. (19)12" [Dimensions of the wooden frame 66,5x80,5cm.] Der Maler und Graphiker Walter Georgi war zusammen mit einigen jungen Malerkollegen der Münchener Akademie sowie verschiedenen Illustratoren der Zeitschrift 'Jugend' Gründungsmitglied der Münchener Künstlervereinigung 'Scholle'. Für die Pariser Weltausstellung 1900 hatte er einen Raum des deutschen Pavillons mit einem fünfteiligen, dekorativen Fries-Zyklus ausgestattet, für den er mit der Goldmedaille ausgezeichnet wurde. Während seiner Mitgliedschaft in der Künstlervereinigung 'Scholle', die er bereits 1905 als Erster wieder verließ, dominierten volkstümliche, teilweise romantisch idealisierte Alltagsszenen und Bildnisse, die er in dekorativer Art und teilweise monumentaler Größe wiedergab. 1908 folgte Georgi einem Ruf als Professor an die Karlsruher Akademie, wo er bis 1919 lehrte. Seine Malerei blieb auch nach seinem Austritt aus der 'Scholle' zunächst stilistisch wie inhaltlich eng mit dem dekorativen, lebensfrohen Münchener Malstil verbunden. Zu Beginn des 1. Weltkrieges hielt sich Walter Georgi zeitweise in der Bretagne auf. 1916 fand im Leipziger Kunstverein eine Ausstellung von Kriegsbildern statt. Er entwarf in dieser Zeit u.a. Plakate für die Zeichnung von Kriegsanleihen.

      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.

      Sussex, England: circa late 1940s-early1950s. Oil on Winsor and Newton's "Rathbone" Canvas board. 16 x 12 inches. Signed lower right. Osmond was born on 6 May 1900 in Orford, Suffolk, the son of the Rev. Percy Herbert Osmond (a clergyman with the Church of England) and his wife, Agnes Paulina (née Sadler), and grew up in Surrey where his father was appointed to the vicarage of Ewshot, near Farnham, in 1906. Osmond was educated privately and, from 1917, studied at Regent Street Polytechnic, earning his Art Teacher's Diploma and a Diploma in Art History in 1924. He taught part-time at Hastings College of Technology, Sussex, and at Hornsey College of Art whilst exhibiting his work, primarily painting in oils and illustrations in wash and line. Osmond was married to Constance M. Biggs, a sculpter who also exhibited at the Royal Academy, in 1927 and turned freelance in 1928, contributing illustrations to Hutchinson' Pie and to books, including a Reader's Library edition of Black Beauty (1932). He began writing and illustrating his own books in the early 1950s, the first of which, A Valley Grows Up, was published by the Oxford University Press in 1953. It went on to win the Carnegie Medal for the year's most outstanding children's book in 1954. That same year, Osmond began writing and illustrating the Animals of the World series for Oxford University Press (1954-57) which were widely praised for their depth and detail. Osmond subsequently wrote and illustrated a wide variety of books, including From Drumbeat to Tickertape (1960), a study of communication, The Artist in Britain, from the eighth to the twentieth century (1961), and Exploring Fashions and Fabrics (1967). He continued to produce popular books on animals and the peoples of other lands as well as illustrating The Thames Flows Down (1957), written by his wife under the pen-name Laurie Osmond. Osmond was a member of the Society of Industrial Artists and the Society of Authors. His death was registered in Lewes, E. Sussex, in 1981. (

        Illustrations of the botany of Captain Cook's voyage round the world in H.M.S. Endeavour in 1768-71. Australian plants.

      - London, printed by order of the Trustees of the British Museum, 1900-1905. Three parts in three. Folio (47.5 x 31.5 cm). Title and 102 pp., followed by 320 lithographed plates (numbered 1-318, 41A, and 45A) and three folding maps. The plates are photolithographic reproductions of original engraved proof plates by F. P. Nodder, James Miller, J. F. Miller, and John Cleveley that were never published. The set is bound in uniform black buckram with gilt lettering on spine, reading: "Cook's First voyage. Australian plants", and the plate numbers contained in each volume.l One of only 300 sets produced, being the first published edition of nearly all the botanical illustrations by Banks and Solander on Australian plants. This set is the first substantial selection made from copper plates engraved under Joseph Banks' direction between 1772 and 1784. The botanical specimens collected during Cook's voyage were carefully depicted in watercolour by several artists, both during and after return of the expedition, under supervision of Banks and Solander. Between 1771-1784 18 selected engravers made at least 743 engraved copperplates of superb quality from the completed watercolour drawings. However, for various reasons Banks never got to publishing these plates and after his death they were bequeathed to the British Museum. It took until 1901 before the museum published a first selection of these plates, though a few of them had been used to illustrate other books. The present publication, with identifications by J. Britten, represents the first appearance of most of the images and is a magnificent overview of the first botanical study of Australian plants. Published in three parts (in 1900, 1901, and 1905), each part consisted of text and plates, though the page numbers of the text followed up on each other. In this copy, all text has been bound together at the start of the first volume, preceded by one general title page dated 1905 (this is the title page of part III). The title pages for parts I and II were left out, as per the instructions of the binder: after completion of the publication, the set was meant to be bound like this and the titles of parts I and II were only meant for temporary use. Bindings with only some light shelf wear, contents mostly very clean. Nearly all plates without foxing or spotting, only a few plates (mainly towards end of part III) with some scattered spotting. A very good set. Nissen BBI, 74; Mitchell Library, 934; Stafleu & Cowan, 295. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
