      1906. 1st Edition. Framed and Matted 9 1/2 X 12 inch etching on paper by Hermann Struck of a Jew reading Torah, signed by Struck in the lower margin. Not dated, but probably from early 20th century (1900-1910) . “Hermann Struck (1876 1944) was a German Jewish artist known for his etchings… Hermann Struck (Chaim Aaron ben David) was born in Berlin. He studied at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts. In 1904, he joined the modern art movement known as the Berlin Secession. In 1900, Struck met Jozef Israëls, a Dutch artist, who became his mentor. Both were recognized as leading artists of their time. In 1908, Struck published ‘Die Kunst des Radierens' (‘The Art of Etching') , which became a seminal work on the subject. It was a textbook that offered both theory and practical instruction. Struck's students included Marc Chagall, Lovis Corinth, Jacob Steinhardt, Lesser Ury and Max Liebermann… In 1899, upon completing his studies at the Berlin Academy, he was banned from teaching there because he was Jewish…. Struck did commissioned portraits of Ibsen, Nietzsche, Freud, Albert Einstein, Herzl, Oscar Wilde and other leading figures of the time. ” (Wikipedia, 2017) Some wear to frame. Not examined out of frame. Etching is in Very Good Condition. (PAINT-1-8) .

This example is finely bound and is extra-illustrated with two autograph letters signed by Charles Dickens. The first letter is to Sir John Bowring.

Bowring was a travel writer and the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. Published in Letters of Charles Dickens: 1836-1870, p 180. The second letter is from London, June 13, 1848, to Edward Davis.

Charles Dickens is generally considered the greatest writer of the Victorian period. His works are characterized by attacks on social evils, injustice, and hypocrisy. "His imaginative freshness, his deep and sincere tenderness and pity, his whole-souled humor that is seldom sharpened into wit, his superabundance of creative energy, have built a deathless niche in the temple of fame for Charles Dickens" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 184).

First edition. Financed by an inheritance received in 1893, Charcot's French Antarctic Expedition initially intended to search for Nordenskjà ld, from whose Antarctic expedition there had been no word in the spring of 1903. However, on reaching Buenos Aires and finding that the Swedish expedition had returned safely, Charcot continued to the Palmer Archipelago and the Graham Land Coast. There, in spite of damage sustained by the Français, the expedition succeeded in discovering 620 miles of new coasts and islands, making an accurate map of the Graham Land Archipelago, undertaking numerous scientific observations, and assembling extensive collections of zoological, botanical and geological specimens. The work was issued in two bindings: printed wrappers and morocco-backed boards, with the printed wrappers bound in; the present copy is a very fine example of the latter binding, and the pictorial wrappers are in very fresh condition.

Illegally printed broadside. 4to, nine lines of text; evenly a little browned, short marginal tear; otherwise fine. This Announcement, published by Polish revolutionaries, tells us that they freed tonight ten political prisoners, who had been sentenced to death, held by the Tsarist army in the infamous Pawiak prison in Warsaw (built from 1829 to 1835), concluding the the triumphant note 'they shall live in freedom'. The daring and life-saving deed had been carried out with stolen uniforms, and forged typewritten documents demanding the prisoners to be handed over. This event was celebrated throughout the Polish underground; however, printed documents of that kind could mean deportation to Siberia for the holder and are of greatest rarity. This item was exhibited at Kontrol, an art event-cum-exhibition organized by Poland Street Underground in London, November, 2009.
