Boissonnas, Fred
Rizarios Foundation 178 pp. Selections from the thousands of plates taken by Boissonnas between the years of 1903-1920 both preserve the Greece that was and express the photographer's love and respect for Greece and the Greek people. Full-page plates draw the viewer into the lives of individuals and groups and the times of the past with detailed and varied tableaus of some of the following: Parthenon and Acropolis; marketplaces in Kalvrita, Paramithia, Andritsena and Ionnina; men, women and children in both candid and posed photos (with the typical daily dress and the costumes of the time) in the villages and countryside; street scenes and neighborhoods in Athens in 1920; butcher shop; village well; architecture; Edessa; Crete cafe 1913; interiors and exteriors of homes and yards with the family members (including the Priests); bridges; Spinalonga Island; Keramita, Thesprotia; washerwomen at the lake; Corfu; Ios at Homer's Grave; Greeks at work and play; prison; soldiers during the Balkan Wars 1913; boating, sea and harbor life; and festivals and dancing. Of particular importance are the plates of the thousand-year-old Monestaries of Mount Altos (the importance of this area and the dramatic changes since then are exhibited in the current Nicholas Basbanes book, "Patience and Fortitude"). Boissonnas biography and the accompanying captions for the plates are in dual languages of English and Greek.

Photogravure portrait of the author, on india paper, mounted, 174 fine chromolithographed plates (26 views of whole trees, 148 botanical drawings of leaves and other details), all by J. Goffin fils after Rodrigues, 1p. printed facsimile of a document signed by 24 members of Second Congreso Cientifico Latino Americano, occasional half-tone illustrations. Unbound as issued in original green cloth portfolios by Carabin-Schildknecht of Brussels, the cloth grained in imitation of cayman, alligator or snake skin, the upper covers with large onset red cloth panels elaborately blocked in gilt with an overall art nouveau design by Francois Wissaert of Brussels, incorporating the title, author's name and an emblematic scene featuring Amazonian Indians, cloth ties. A fine copy of one of the two greatest works on the palm trees of Brazil, illustrated with spectacular semi- abstract images of almost 150 species. The plates divide naturally into two groups: the first smaller group is of views of entire trees, often in their natural setting. These have a naive immediacy and vitality that is charming. The second much larger group of detailed drawings follow the correct guidelines for technical botanical drawings, but, mainly as a result of the need to fold the large leaves to be depicted, they achieve a wonderful semi-abstract status that recalls the photographic work of Man Ray, or painterly images from artists ranging from Georgia O'Keefe to Victor Vasarely.

Photographically illustrated. Hefty octavo, xiii,[1],319,[1]+[3]ad pp. Gray/Blue cloth stamped in black and gilt, Top Edge Gilt. Rubbing and light soiling at spine and cover, leaving some wear to gilt, else basically flawless. Near Fine. The true first edition, in a rather exceptional state of preservation, of People of the Abyss, perhaps the scarcest of London's ventures into social investigative journalism. In 1902, posing as an out-of-work sailor, he "went underground into the belly of the beast" - the slums of London's East End - where, living on the street and working odd jobs, he was accepted by the locals and was able to collect the experiences retold here. Widely lauded and reprinted still as an activist socio-political masterpiece, it also deeply affected London himself, who said: "No other book of mine took so much of my young heart and tears as that study of the economic degradation of the poor."

Fictionalized - with dialogue and some characters - but obviously heartily researched, Robert Devoy is Sosey's account of the incident of October 18, 1862, in Palmyra, Missouri, when ten Confederate prisoners were shot (by Federal prisoners)in retaliation for the presumed murder of a local Union man. For this act, General John McNeil became known as the "Butcher of Palmyra" and was denounced in newspapers both in the Union states and in other countries. Confederate enlistments, and reenlistments, increased after the massacre. More at: civilwarstlouis(dot com).

Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], 1903. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. approximately 14 1/8 x 31 1/8 inches. approximately 17 1/4 x 35 1/2 inches. The pass for the lead made by Gabriel over the very recognizable "Shovel-nose". Mors, the driver behind Gabriel, had limited success in these races, this 70 horse power chain-driven car being the exception. There is some confusion as to the actual number on the car during this race, with some records indicating #6 rather than #168 as shown. This was Fernand Gabriel's only win in a career that lasted until 1923. He was killed during an RAF air raid on Paris in 1943. The 1903 Paris-Madrid race is infamous in racing history.

Other oddities included one car whose transmission became stuck in reverse and was driven that way for 25 miles. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Tennis. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the be … [Click Below for Full Description]
