Most photographs 5" x 7". Oblong 4to. 3/4 leather album, professionally repaired. N.p. (various cities in Mexico) circa 1900. Homer Scott, born in 1880, was a founding member of the American Society of Cinematographers in 1919, but in his early years he made several trips from El Paso, Texas into Mexico to photograph both sides of the Mexican Revolution. During one trip he was arrested and nearly executed as a spy before being released. He took photographs for several publications including the New York Herald, founded the Scott Photo Company, and worked with the Mexican War Photo Postcard Company. Charles Burlingame Waite was originally from California, and worked briefly in El Paso before moving to Mexico in 1896. He opened a photography studio in Mexico City that remained in operation until Waite left Mexico in 1913. During those years Waite photographed archaeological and scientific expeditions, contributed to periodicals and tourist guides, and worked on commission for a number of business. He became best known for his photographs of landscapes and daily life, which were widely distributed as postcards.

        Savrola. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania.

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900 - Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine and within single frame to front board gilt. Housed in a custom blue cloth flat back box. Spine slightly toned, a couple of light marks to contents, endpapers and edges slightly foxed. An excellent copy in bright cloth. First edition in book form, first printing, of Churchill's only novel, his third published book, but the first he undertook to write, and the second he completed. Churchill's melodramatic tale of liberal revolution in an autocratic Mediterranean state was originally serialised in Macmillan's Magazine between May and December 1899. This edition, published in 4,000 copies on 1 February 1900, preceded the UK issue by twelve days, possibly as US law required a foreign-authored book to be manufactured in America to ensure copyright protection. "Whether they deem it a key indication of Churchill's innermost philosophy and political morality or just a yarn, Savrola continues to exert a grip on devotees of the canon" (Langworth). Cohen A3.1.a; Langworth pp. 38-41; Woods A3(a). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Duplex grammatice artis isagoge ab eodem multis nuper locupletata schematibus, .[Paris], Ambrosius Girault (colophon: Paris, printed by Nicolai Savetier for Ambrosius Girault, 25 July 1525). Small 4to (20 x 13.5 cm). With a large woodcut device on title-page, about 25 woodcut "Lombardic" initials plus about 10 repeats, and about 20 line fillers. With the device, all initials and line fillers richly coloured by hand with extensive use of gold, four lines of text on title-page, nearly all paragraph marks and some capitals gilt. Black sheepskin (ca. 1900).

      - Bibl. Belg. P317 (IV, p. 714: 1 copy); Moreau III, 887 (2 copies). Richly and beautifully hand-decorated copy of a very rare edition of a Latin school grammar by Pierre de Ponte (1475-1539). The decoration goes beyond mere colouring and the application of gold. Some of the initials have flowers or figures painted in that do not seem to be present in the printed initial, so that two initials that were probably printed from the same block sometimes appear different in details of form. Born at Bruges, De Ponte was blinded at age three but became a school teacher at Paris. The title-page calls him caecus Brugensis (the blind man of Bruges). His Latin grammar distinguished itself by its methods and scholarly qualities, teaching children by questions and answers in prose, with examples taken from classical authors. The first part treats Latin grammar and the second part Latin syntax. Only two other copies of the present edition are known.Title-page with a faint early owner's inscription. Some restorations and water stains in the title-page and it and the following leaf somewhat browned, but the rest of the leaves are in very good condition. The binding has cracks in the hinges and scuff marks mostly at the corners, but is still good. Very rare edition of a classic Latin school grammar, beautifully coloured and decorated with extensive use of gold.

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.

        Fine Binding- Riviere] In Memoriam, A. H. H.

      M. F. Mansfield; At the Sign of the Unicorn [1900], New York; London - Tall 8vo. A wonderful binding by Riviere in full brown goatskin, both covers tooled in gilt with a unique all-over heavy gilt design consisting of a border of a fillet and intertwining gouges, with stems formed by gouges and fillets issuing inwards with closed flower heads. As well, there are twelve magnificent open flower-heads running longitudinally at the center. The central panel of twelve flower heads is most aesthetically pleasing. The spine is divided into six panels with gilt compartments, lettered in the second and dated at the foot, the others with stems and small flower-heads, the edges of the boards tooled with a repeated dot, the turn-ins with two gilt fillets, marbled endleaves, top edge gilt, the others untrimmed. The bindings is signed with Riviere's gilt pallet on lower front turn-in; as well, there is an inked pallet of Henry Sotheran on the top front fly, who may have commissioned the binding from Riviere. The binding is fine. An unusual and scarce publication, the colophon reads: "Of this Edition Five Hundred Copies were Printed by The Bankside Press and are Offered for Sale by M. F. Mansfield, New York, September, MDCCCC", and beneath this is an ink inscription "This is No.8 of 100 copies reserved for Great Britain."

      - "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. Kleiner Literaturhinweis: Paul Kühn, Maler Walter Georgi, in: Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration, Bd. 21, Darmstadt 1907/08, pp. 283-299; Willy Frank, Walter Georgi - Karlsruhe, in: Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration, Bd. 27, Darmstadt 1910/11, pp. 185-193; Hartfried Neunzert (Hg.): Walter Georgi 1871 - 1924, Ausstellungskatalog Neues Stadtmuseum Landsberg am Lech 1994.

        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.

      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. (

      Seiten etwas fingerfleckig,sonst GUTES EXEMPLAR. Reklameprospekt, in dem die Sensationen dieser Schaustellung zeichnerisch in Szene gesetzt wurden. Hierzu gehörten unter anderem "riesige zahnbewaffnete Thiere und Mammuths", die "Riesen-Affin" Johanna als "intelligentestes Tier der Welt" sowie eine "Ausstellung dressirter Amphibien". Neben Luftakrobaten, Kunstreitern und Clowns konnten auch 23 "lebende Ungeheuerlichkeiten" aus aller Welt bestaunt werden. Darunter befand sich etwa Cora McNeal als "Das magnetische Weib". Befähigt durch "wunderbare elektrische Eigenschaften" hob sie drei Personen auf einem Stuhl just durch Berührung mit der flachen Hand an. Auch Billy Wells, "Der hartköpfige menschliche Amboss" genannt, zählte zu den Ungeheuerlichkeiten. Dank einer "höchst sonderbar entwickelten Hirnschale" konnten Zuschauer auf seinem Kopf massives Gestein mit einem Schmiedehammer zerschlagen. Ebenso sorgte eine "bärtige Dame" bereits um 1900 mit ihrer ausgeprägten Gesichtsbehaarung für Aufmerksamkeit.
