         Typed Letter Signed ("Booker T. Washington, Principal") to Mrs. Romaine Wade, declining her request to help find domestic servants, and expressing a preference that his graduates stay in the "Southland"

      Tuskegee, 1901. 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Old folds. 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Washington replies to a Mrs. Wade in Santa Barbara, California, who had evidently sought help finding domestic servants: "Referring to your letter which has just been received, I am very sorry to say that I am unable to assist you in the matter of securing such domestics as you desire. Although we have a great many young women taking our course in domestic science, none of them seem disposed to leave the school at this time in the term to take up work in other directions. However, we rather urgue upon our graduates to remain in the South after completing their course as we believe the Southland offers greater opportunities for their usefulness among their own people."

         VIEWS OF THE NORTH CHINA AFFAIR. [Photographed During the Boxer Rebellion, 1900]

      - Tokio 1901, Yamamoto. Oblong album, color pictorial stiff wrs., purple silk ties, mild/faint center fold, a remarkably clean, bright copy, 58p., 40 large photos 26.5 x 20 cm., 21 smaller photos ca. 12.5 x 8.5 cm., album size 39 x 26.5 cm. with a total of 114 b.w. photogravures. *** THIS IS A VERY RARE BOOK, WORLDCAT ONLY LOCATES 3 COPIES ! * THE BOXER UPRISING 1900 This work documents the results of the Boxer Uprising of 1899-1900, where in anti-foreign sentiments reached a boiling point. Several foreigners were killed, mostly missionaries, later when foreign embassies were besieged some diplomats were also killed. This resulted in the combined efforts of these foreign countries who teamed up to suppress this rebellion. This rebellion was mostly limited to North China where it began in Shandong province under German control and spread Westward across Northern China through Beijing. * This work shows historic photographs of the foreign troops occupying Beijing [Peking], China. Good photographs of these troops in and around the Forbidden City, namely those from Japan, Russia, France, America, and Germany. * What makes this graphic work important, is that it shows a good part of the Palace and other Forbidden City buildings as the were before the troops actually damaged or pillaged these historic sights. Each country garrisoned their troops in a select group of old buildings, hither to unseen by commoners and especially never by any foreigner. It is a superb look at the inner world of the Emperor of China. * THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Yamamoto Sanshichiro was a Meiji era photographer, born in 1855 in Okayama [Japan]. From 1882 to about 1897 he had a photographic studio in Tokyo. Later when news of the Boxer Rebellion swept the world, he quickly went to Peking to photograph the historic activities of foreign troops in the capitol, including the Japanese. After photographing the aftermath in Peking, he finally settled down in Tianjin and opened his third photographic studio. * CONDITION: This work is truly an excellent copy, externally and internally. There is a very tiny bit of edge wear at the lower right [a tiny chip loss] and upper left front corners. The purple silk ties are bright, solid and very clean. There is a very slight hint of where this book was probably lightly folded in half but not hard and there is a mild hint remaining. From about the middle onwards there is not much evidence of this at all. By and large, we feel this work is an excellent copy. There is NO damp or other condition issues with this item. Overall exceptionally clean and solid throughout. This is a very RARE book has seldom been found let alone in such lovely condition. A REMARKABLE COPY ! See photographs posted to our website from this copy. * RARITY: Worldcat only locates three copies in the world. This is indeed a very RARE book ! See reference below for more information. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: The author/photographer was noted for photographing and publishing two other superb photographic books on China: "Peking" published in 1906, and his stunning "View and Custom of North China" in 1909. * EDITION: This is the FIRST and ONLY SMALL EDITION of this book. * REFERENCE: Please see worldcat: r/oclc/25266060&referer=brief_results * Yamamoto Sanshichiro is amazingly NOT FOUND in any of the 3 Terry BENNETT books: . History of Photography in China 1842-1860, vol. 1, 2009 . History of Photography in China: Western Photographers 1861-1879, vol. 2, 2010. .

Premier édition en français de cet important ouvrage publié en Russe, entre 1835 et 1838, dans la revue des Mémoires scientifiques de Kazan. Lobachevsky est considéré (avec Bolyai) comme le fondateur de la géométrie non Euclidienne. C'est en 1826, qu'il présente pour la première fois ses conceps sur la géométrie non Euclidienne à l'université de Kazan. Cet article ne sera pas publié et il faudra attendre 1829-1830 pour que sa théorie soit pour la première fois publiée sous le titre "sur les fondations de la géométrie". Et donc entre 1835 et 1838 qu'il publie ses "Nouveaux principes de la géométrie avec une théorie complète des parallèles" en Russe qui est considéré comme étant sa meilleure publication sur la géométrie non Euclidienne.

In this work the fundamental notions of geometry are discussed in detail: adjacency, cuts and the definition of the notions of the notion of point connected with them, lines, surfaces, and also the basic theorems on perpendicular straight lines and planes, relations in triangles, linear and angular measures, measuring of areas, an others. Starting from more general fundamental premises (compared with earlier works), a theory of parallel straight lines is constructed in detail. The fundamental equations of the imaginary geometry are introduced. As a whole, in this work Lobachecsky establishes the precise axiomatic foundations of geometry and defines the principles of its logical development, accompanying them with the corresponding foundational results in each of the fields he considered"], Kline [p. 873 : "He presented his views on the foundations of geometry in a paper before the department of mathematics and physics of the University in 1826.

The first was entitled " On the Foundations of Geometry" and appeared in 1829-30.

The Unkindo catalog from 1902 indicates that, though this work was slated to run to three volumes, only one had been published by then. The 1915 Unsodo catalog does not include the title so it is unclear whether volume three was ever finished. With beautifully printed color woodblock prints.

         Sonntag vor den Thoren von Paris.(Bucolique modern).

      - Farbholzschnitt, 1901, auf Bütten. Darstellungsgröße 26:39 cm, Blattgröße 32,2:45,4 cm, auf Untersatz montiert. Literatur: Lutz-Brissonneau 271. Erschienen im Verlag der Gesellschaft für vervielfältigende Kunst, Wien. Von 1862-71 lernte Lepère in der Werkstatt des reproduzierenden Holzschneiders Joseph Burn- Smeeton (tätig in Pairs um 1840/60), nahm Zeichenunterricht bei Horace Lecoq de Boisboudran (1802-1897) und bildete sich nebenher als Maler aus. 1870 stellte er im Salon Landschaften und Stilleben aus. Seit 1872 arbeitete er in Ateliergemeinschaft mit dem Graphiker Henri Pierre Paillard (1844-1912). Seit 1876 entstehen vor allem Holzschnitte und Radierungen, ab 1881 war er leitender Illustrator bei „Monde Illustrée" und bereiste verschiedene Regionen Frankreichs. Er gilt als Erneuerer des Holzschnitts. Gemeinsam mit Charles Maurin (1854-1914) und Henri Rivière (1864-1951) entdeckte er den japanischen Holzschnitt und die ursprünglichen Techniken des Farbholzschnitts. Er nimmt die Originaltechniken – Holzschnitt mit der Richtung der Holzfaser und Schnitt mit Taschenmesser – wieder auf, die eine ganz besondere Sensibilität für die Qualität des Materials erfordern.

         C????? ?? ?????-????????, ???-????? ? ? ????? ????? [The Tale of Tsarevich Ivan, The Fire-Bird and Grey Wolf].

      Exped. Zagotovl. Gos. Bumag. Skt. Peterburg 1901 - Folio (32.5 x 25.5 cm). 12 pp., chromolithographs throughout, some of these full-page. Original chromolithographed wrappers, protected by cardboard wrappers. An exceptionally fine example of this beautiful children book, finely illustrated in colour. Rarely found in such a nice, unrestored condition. Over a four-year period Bilibin illustrated six tales using as backgrounds the typical Russian countryside and buildings: dark and luscious forests and meadows, blue ribbons of rivers, colourful medieval building, ancient monasteries and wood huts. He strove to create an artistic whole for the series by careful layout and design. He placed the illustrations within intricate frames of his own design, employing a variety of decorative motifs that imitate wood carvings and poker-work; and he selected and drew the ornamental lettering used on the cover and at the beginning of each tale. The books were released as thin, large-format publications in stiff wrappers and illustrated with colourful high quality chromolithographs. Bilibin's style has been frequently imitated and his approach to book design, where everything is subordinated to a single artistic concept, was very influential in the history of Russian book design (Golynets, pp. 6-7; 13-15).

         Schönheit aus dem Feuer: Fliesenkunst aus acht Jahrhunderten von Wolfgang E. Weick und Gabriele Koller

      Deutscher Kunstverlag. Der Katalog enthält den Bestand an Fliesen, den das Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Dortmund Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts von dem Schweizer Archäologen und Kunstwissenschaftler Robert Forrer erwarb und bietet damit einen Überblick über die Geschichte der europäischen Fliesenkunst.Forrer hatte in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts begonnen, Fliesen zu erwerben und zu erforschen. 1901 erschien seine Publikation »Geschichte der europäischen Fliesenkeramik vom Mittelalter bis zum Jahre 1900«, ein lange Zeit gültiges Werk, dessen Grundlage Forrers eigene umfangreiche Fliesensammlung bildete. Die 1903 nahezu komplett erworbene Fliesensammlung Forrers bildet heute den Kern eines großen Sammlungsbestands an historischen Fliesen im Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Dortmund. Beginnend mit Fliesen aus dem 12. Jahrhundert, die zu den frühesten Beispielen der europäischen Fliesenkeramik überhaupt gehören, gibt die Sammlung einen Einblick in acht Jahrhunderte europäische Fliesenkunst bis hin zu den Anfängen des Jugendstils. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf Fliesen des Mittelalters und der Renaissance. Höhepunkte der Sammlung bilden frühe Relieffliesen des Rheinlandes, inkrustierte Fliesen des französischen Mittelalters, spanisch-maurische Fliesen sowie farbenprächtige Fayencefliesen der Renaissance aus Italien und Frankreich. Den Siegeszug der weiß-blauen niederländischen Fliese bis ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein spiegeln zahlreiche Fliesenbeispiele aus verschiedenen europäischen Länder wider. Der vorliegende Katalog enthält einen einführenden Textteil und mit 350 Objekten den Gesamtbestand in Einzelbeschreibungen und Abbildungen.
