        Figurengruppe mit vier präparierten Fröschen mit Hockeyschlägern.

      Um 1900. - Format ca. 14x20x5 cm. Kurioses Objekt aus vier präparierten echten Fröschen, davon 2 mit Miniatur-Hockeyschlägern ausgestattet. Auf ein Holzstück montiert. Das Präparieren von Fröschen ist ein komplizierter Vorgang und war im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert in England sehr in Mode. Begeisterte Anhänger, Frösche so zu präparieren, daß sie absurd anmutende menschliche Situationen darstellen, waren u.a. Charles Darwin und Queen Victoria. Bizarre frog taxidermy. 4 stuffed dancing frogs, two with a hockey stick mounted on a woodblock. The amphibians have been preserved through taxidermy and then posed in the human scenario of a hockeygame. Taxidermy became a big trend in the late 19th century and was particularly popular in Britain. Charles Darwin and Queen Victoria were known to be fans. Amphibian taxidermy is considered to be extremely difficult and even today's practitioners tend not to attempt work on the slimy creatures.

        Académie d'homme 6

      Original ink drawing and pencil sketch overleaf. Signature stamp of the artist's signature in the lower right corner of the work, and signature stamp of the workshop at the back. This drawing is part of a series of ten studies for Bertin to 1920-1925. A small asymmetric lack of origin, otherwise very good condition. Provenance: the artist's studio, referenced to catalog Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition. You can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay or the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc.. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        The Winning of the West. Daniel Boone Edition with Roosevelt manuscript. Four volume set.

      Four volume set; 5 folding maps, 102 plates. Here, #2 of only 200 sets in the original grained green morocco which has reverted to brown at the spines; floral gilt corner devices, raised bands, gilt titled spine. Top edge gilt; others deckled. Ruled & floriated dentelles; remarkably preserved red suede end & fly sheets. One page folded legal leaf in Roosevelt's hand mounted following colophon reveals his editing wasn't reflective but done as he wrote (lined through words here bracketed): "The attitude of the British gradually changed from one of passive to active hostility. In 1792 and '93 they still (united) [to keep] the Indians to make [at] peace with the Americans, provided always there were no such concessions made to the latter as would endanger the British control of the fur trade. But by the beginning of 1794 the relations between the Great Britain and the United States had become so strained that open war was threatened; for the advisors of the king, relying on the weakness of the young Federal Republic had begun to adopt towards it that tone of brutal insolence, which [backed by] reflected well the general attitude of the British people toward all Americans, and which finally brought on the second war between the two nations. The British officials in Canada were quick to reflect the tone of the home government, and, as always in such cases, [some of them] the more zealous and belligerent went a little farther than they were authorized. On February 10th Lord Dorchester, Governor of Canada, in an address of welcome to some of the chiefs from the tribes of the north and west, said speaking of the boundary, [speaking of children, since my return, I find no appearance of a line] "Children since my return I find no appearance of a line remains; and the manner in which the people of the United States push on and act and talk [on this]....I shall not be xxx surprised if we are at war with them in the course of the present year; and if so a line must then be drawn by the warriors....we have acted in the most peaceable manner and borne the language and conduct of the people if the United States with patience; but I believe our patience is almost exhausted." (1) [At the Nor that] Of course such a speech, delivered to such an audience, was [merely incitement to war a direct] more than a mere incitement to war; it was a direct appeal to arms. [P] Nor did the [incitement] encouragement given the Indians end with words; for [Simcoe] in April, Simcoe, [who was in command in upper Canada, went to] the lieutenant-governor, himself built a fort at the Miami rapids, in the very heart of the hostile.... (1). Rives' Life and Times of James Madison, III, 418. A verified copy of the speech, from the archives of the London Foreign Office. The authenticity of the speech was admitted at the time by the British minister; yet, extraordinary to say, not only British, but American historians, had spoken of it as spurious."

        Pair of Chinese Door God Paintings.

      No date. Ca. early 1900s? PAIR OF PAINTINGS, each on a sheet of board 24 x 15 inches. Some light abrasions, overall light soiling, overall good to very good displayable condition. Verso of the board shows signs of their having been previously framed. These are beautiful examples of vintage Chinese folk art painting, well executed with a great sense of movement and attention to detail in such touches as the silvered highlights. The custom of placing these images to ward off bad spirits from a dwelling or business dates back to the effectiveness of two T'ang era generals in ridding their Emperor of a troublesome ghost. An estimation of date might be the early 1900s. A bold, colorful pair.

      George Q. Cannon & Sons, Salt Lake City 1900 - 520pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Brown cloth with the title gilt on the front board and on the backstrip. Decorative blind stamped borders to boards. Very good. Mild rubbing to the corners of the boards with minor nicks to the cloth. Private non-lending library ink stamp on the pastedowns and endsheets and nine times through the text. Eight multiplication problems in ink on the recto of the front flyleaf. James Stephen Brown (1828-1902) was a member of the Mormon Battalion who crossed the west and reached California in 1847. He was with James Marshall when he discovered gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848, which would lead to the California Gold Rush nearly a year later (it took a while for this information to reach and disseminate across the rest of America). Brown was also a successful missionary in the South Pacific and one of the early settlers on the Little Colorado and was an early missionary to the Navajo and Hopi. "Before his death he wrote an interesting sketch of his life which was published in book form under the title 'Life of a Pioneer, being the autobiography of James S. Brown' in which interesting work the details of Bro. Brown's life are depicted in a way calculated to inspire faith and confidence in the great Latter-day work, to which Bro. Brown devoted his life's strength and energy." - Andrew Jenson 'L.D.S. Biographical Encyclopedia' This highly readable memoir is a surprisingly uncommon. Flake/Draper 900. Graff 426. Howes B849.

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."

        Contadina.

      1900 - Alcide Davide Campestrini nacque a Trento nel 1863 e morì a Milano nel 1940. Frequentò l’Accademia di Brera ed ivi fu insegnante. Nato a Trento nel 1863 fin dall’infanzia manifesta spiccate attitudini per la pittura. Dopo aver frequentato la scuola di disegno nella città natale si trasferisce a Milano, dove frequenta l’Accademia di Brera. Fu allievo di Raffaele Casnedi, Francesco e Ambrogio Borghi, ma suo maestro elettivo e grande ammiratore, oltreché amico, fu Giuseppe Bertini. A solo 24 anni ottenne la nomina a professore della R. Scuola d’arte applicata all’industria del Castello Sforzesco. Alla cattedra accede dopo alterne vicende. Campestrini, infatti era fuoriuscito nel 1881 dal Trentino a causa della sua renitenza alla leva nell’esercito austriaco; questo episodio venne risolto grazie all’intervento del marchese Emilio Visconti Venosa, garibaldino, all’epoca presidente dell’Accademia di Brera, che fece concedere a Campestrini il permesso di ritornare nella terra d’origine. Ma la sua città d’elezione fu sempre Milano, dove la sua attività coglieva i maggiori successi e dove partecipò alle più importanti esposizioni. Nel 1894 fu nominato socio onorario dell’Accademia di Brera, dove teneva pure il corso di figura. Oltre che ritrattista e paesaggista, il Campestrini si meritò gran fama nella pittura storica e nella decorazione di ville, palazzi di cui ricordiamo quella del Teatro Sociale di Trento. Firmato al verso, segni di restauro, si vende in cornice.\r Formato: Olio su tela di cm 33x44. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.
