        Vincent van Gogh. 40 Photocollographies d'Après ses Tableaux et Dessins.

      Amsterdam Versluys 1904 - Portfolio, beige halflinnen, gedecoreerde platten, katoenen touw, compleet met 40 platen. fine condition . Allereerste uitgave met reproducties Van Gogh.!! Een zeer zeldzame boek Van Gogh 40 Photocollographies d?apres ses tableaux et dessins. Het is de eerste uitgave die verscheen over de kunstenaar. Het boek is uitgegeven door Versluys in Amsterdam rond 1904. Het boek is bijzonder omdat het verscheen voordat Van Gogh (1853 ? 1890) beroemd werd. De interesse in het werk van Van Gogh ontstond pas na zijn dood. De eerste tentoonstellingen in het buitenland vonden plaats in 1905 en 1906 in Berlijn, Hagen, Hamburg en Wenen. In Nederland was er een klein groepje kunstenaars dat interesse in Van Gogh had en in 1891 na zijn dood tentoonstellingen organiseerde. Een photocollographie wordt gemaakt met behulp van een gelatine plaat. Het is een traag drukproces waarbij 200 afdrukken wel een uur vergen. De techniek is geschikt voor kunstdrukken omdat schaduwpartijen goed worden weergegeven. Na 2000 afdrukken is de plaat versleten. 0 g.

        Harrie Kuyten (1883-1952) - Signed Oil, Still Life with Geraniums.

      Mid 20th Century - DescriptionWe are proud to present a stunning still life by the highly sought after Dutch artist Harrie Kuyter. This interior still life is painted with bold, impasto brushwork typical of the Impressionist influence present in Kuyter's work, and features vibrant hues. The painting is excellently presented in a later dark wooden frame. Signed. On board. ConditionIn general the appearance is excellent. The varnish is clear and even, and the paint layer is stable and sound. There are some tiny retouching visible under UV light, mainly to the petals of the right hand flower and to the orange book. There are some minor spots of surface dirt typical for a painting of this age. There is an area with thin passages of paint above the flowers - this may be due to light surface abrasion, or it may be intentional by the artist. The frame is in good condition.Biography The paintings of Harrie Kuyten has fetched high sums of money at Christie's Auctioneers and other auction houses in the Netherlands (please see above photos for similar examples). Harrie Kuyten was a Dutch artist born in Utrecht, full name Henricus Johannes Kuyten. He was an engraver, lithographer, woodcutter, draughtsman and painter who belonged to the Bergense (Bergen) School of Dutch artists. He studied at the Akademie voor Beeldende Kunsten (Academy of Fine Arts), Antwerp from 1904 to 1905 and was awarded a Royal Scholarship for three years. After travelling around several countries he settled in Amsterdam in 1914. Later on, having stayed in Austria, Hungary and Paris, he lived in Schoorl. His work is influenced by the Impressionists, as seen in the use of colour and brushwork in the present painting, and the French Fauvists. He painted harbour views, landscapes, cityscapes, animals, still lifes, interiors, self-portraits and nudes. After travelling around several countries he settled in Amsterdam in 1914. Later on, having stayed in Austria, Hungary and Paris, he settled down at Schoorl. He was a member of Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam, and the Onafhankelijken (Independents), Amsterdam.

        Japanese title.] A Humorous Diplomatic Atlas of Europe and Asia.

      1904 - Tokyo: Yoshijiro Yabuzaki, 1904. Chromolithograph, sheet 495 x 560mm. A variant of the Frederick W. Rose 'octopus' map of Europe, extended to include more Asian states, including India, Tibet, China, Korea and Japan, with a title in Japanese and English, an English description top left and a longer Japanese text under the map. It was drawn by a student at Keio University on the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 so, of course, the focal point of the map is the 'Black Octopus' of Russia. One of its tentacles reaches down to Port Arthur in Manchuria, which was Japan's first target of the hostilities. Ohara gloatingly writes 'The Japanese fleet has already practically annihilated Russia's naval powers in the Orient. The Japanese army is about to win a signal victory over Russia in Corea and Manchuria'. SOUCACOS: p.178.

        Italian Villas and Their Gardens.

      New York: The Century Company, 1904. First edition of Wharton's classic treatise on "Italian garden-magic." Quarto, original dark green cloth, top edge gilt. With 45 full-page plates, including 26 illustrations by Maxfield Parrish (15 in color), seven in-text and 19 black-and-white photographic illustrations. In very good condition with some light rubbing and wear. A nice example. Edith Wharton's Italian Villas and Their Gardens, a seminal work on garden design, is a testament to the passionate connoisseurship of one of America's greatest writers. A comprehensive look at the history and character of Italian garden architecture and ornamentation, the book explores more than seventy-five villas, capturing what Wharton calls their "garden-magic" and illuminating the intimate relationship between the house, its formal gardens, and the surrounding countryside. "...Parrish illustrations, in trademark dreamy, fairy-tale style--seems to dislocate these legendary gardens from time altogether" (Forbes).

Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), was born in Pittsburgh and in 1868 settled in Paris to study art, where she fell under the influence of Courbet, Manet and Degas, who invited her to exhibit with the Impressionists, which she did in 1879, 1880, 1881 and 1886. Degas became a close friend, and portrayed her on several occasions; she bought Impressionist paintings for herself and her family, and tried to get other Americans to do so.

        Orthodontia and Orthopaedia of the Face.

      Philadelphia and London, J.B. Lippincott Company, 1904, 8, 517, (1) pp., 760 Abb., 44 Tafel, Leinenband d.Ut. First Edition - "Jackson was one of the early advocates of continuous pressure"!"In 1887 before the New York Odontological Society, Victor Hugo Jackson (1850-1929) presented a simple device for the regulation of teeth, which he termed a crib. Although he had used other apparatus prior to this time, and applications in design had been used, this term is now associated with D. Jackson's name and that type of appliance has become known as the Jackson crib.The "crib" is designed as an anchorage attachment for plates of various kinds, "this anchorage was gained by extending a spring wire on the lingual and labial sides of the teeth near the gums in some cases including all of the teeth, in others only a part of the arch the spring in the labial and lingual sides was connected by passing wires over the arch at the junction of the teeth. Later I (Jackson) devised the Jackson System. The anchorage is secured by spring-clasp attachments and partial-claps supporting the base-wire, to which any form of spring can be added". (Preface of the Orthodontia and orthopaedia of the Fac. (1904). In appearance Jackson's crib resembles the devices of Dealabarre, Schange, Evans, Lachaise and Atkinson, although these were used principally to open the bite.The following are the Claims made of the system. 1. Ease of construction and alteration. 2. Firm anchorage. 3. Occupation of little space in the mouth. 4. Cleanliness.Jackson was one of the early advocates of continuous pressure in preference to intermittent force as brought forth by Farrar.""In 1904 Dr. Jackson brought all of his material that had been published in various journals together and published his book entitled: Orthodontia and Orthopaedia of the Face." B.W. Weinberger, Orthodontics, an historical review of its origin and evolution, II (1926), pp.720-736"1887 - 1890: Erste gelötete Drahtapparaturen finden wir bei Victor Hugo Jackson, der Halte-, Verbindungs - und Drahtelemente durch massive Zinnblöcke verbindet, und sie als sog. "Crib" (Krippe) bezeichnet. Diese Geräte baut er selbst allmählich zu einem Universalgerät aus, welches später u.a. durch George B. Crozat (um 1919/1920) wieder aufgegriffen und in zierlicherer Form vervollkommnet wird." Frank Möller, Geschichte der Kieferorthopädie

        In Unknown Africa. A Narrative of Twenty Months Travel and Sport in Unknown Lands and among New Tribes.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, Limited, 1904 - Octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles and vignettes to spine and front cover gilt, top edge gilt. Foxing to edges and prelims, maps spotted and offset, the very occasional spot to text. A very good copy. 2 colour plates of giraffes, approximately 200 half-tone photographs to the text, many full-page, 2 folding maps. First edition, scarce variant binding, other copies noted in blue cloth with the front cover lettered and decorated in black rather than gilt. Following a successful hunting trip in Abyssinia, Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) travelled to British East Africa in 1902 in order to find a specimen of a five-horned giraffe recently discovered by Sir Harry Johnston. He pursued impala, rhinoceros and lion on the Athi River, crossed the Tana and lived among the Kikuyu, successfully hunting elephant, then collecting trophy kudu and lion on the Baringo plain. He eventually found a five-horned giraffe on the outskirts of Masai territory. Reviewing the work in the Geographical Journal, Harry Johnston praised its descriptions and photographs of big game as well noting that "from a geographical point of view also Major Powell-Cotton's journey is a remarkable one. He covered a little new ground north of the explorations made by Macdonald and Austin, and south and west of the journeys of Wellby and Donaldson-Smith". Czech p. 226. [Attributes: First Edition]
