        Handgemaltes Quartettspiel. Unseren Freunden Emil u. Emma Lang gewidmet. 25 x 4 aquarellierte Federzeichnungen auf Spielkarten.

      1910 - 1910. 8,3x7,8x12 cm. 100 Spielkarten in handbemalter Pergamentbox mit Titel und Widmung auf dem Deckel, auf der Unterseite signiert und datiert. Ganz in der Tradition der Wiener Werkstätten gehaltenes Quartettspiel von feinster graphischer Raffinesse, mit Witz und Ironie gezeichnet und meisterhaft aquarelliert. Ein kleines Meisterwerk des schweizerischen Jugendstils, das den Vergleich nicht zu scheuen braucht. Die 25 Themen sind: Blumengebinde, Jahreszeiten, Damenrockmuster, Spiele, Hofpersonal, Gesangsformationen, Die Künste, Blaues Porzellan, Skurrile Herren, Rock-Lätschen, Frauenrollen, Göttinnen, Wehwehchen, Blumen, Kinder, Berner Mädchen, Häuser, Schuhe, Hauspersonal, Männertypen, Himmelskörper, Alte Kulturvölker, Blumenknaben, Spielzeug, Initialen der beschenkten Familie Lang. - Emil Lang war der Besitzer der Berner Buchhandlung und des Verlags A. Francke. - Der weitgehend unbekannte und vergessene Schweizer Illustrator und Grafiker Florentin Garraux (1859-1950) wuchs in Solothurn auf und führte von 1889 bis 1927 in Moutier ein Epicerie-Mercerie-Geschäft. Daneben zeichnete er Postkarten und Gebrauchsgrafik, die zum Teil auch gedruckt wurden. Der grösste Teil seines Werkes besteht aber aus Originalarbeiten, die er auch aus Werbegründen seinem Kunden- und Freundeskreis schenkte. Einzig 1909 und 1915 zeigten das Kunstmuseum Bern und das Kunsthaus Zürich einige seiner Arbeiten. Die letzten Jahrzehnte lebte er in Bern und Langenthal. Seine Arbeiten veränderten sich vom französischen Jugendstil zum Stil der Wiener Werkstätten, später zum Art-Déco-Stil. Viele seiner Motive stammen aus der Mode. Garraux beherrschte die ornamentale Wiedergabe von Kleidern auf kleinstem Raum. Absicht der Bilder war natürlich auch, seine Kundschaft zum Kauf exklusiver Mode zu animieren. - Nur wenige Erwähnungen im Brun, Schweizer Künstlerlexikon Bd. IV S. 138, Bénézit und Thieme Becker.

Some foxing to endpapers, else a fine copy. The pictorial front panel. of the dust jacket is neatly tipped into the gutter fold of the front. endpapers. A very scarce book. (#151702). First edition. The author's first novel. Visiak's "best work shadows SF, horror and fantasy modes, employing speculative metaphysics in a manner similar to the fiction of his friend David Lindsay. In stories of this sort, the consensual word is argued -- sometimes in passages of considerable length - - as being an expression of the dream world, or world of archetypes. Such texts do not easily fit into template definitions of the various genres of the fantastic ... THE HAUNTED ISLAND is clearly fantastic, and engagingly deploys ghosts and magic in a tale of pirates set on a mysterious island in the 17th century." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 987.

      No place, no date, ca. 1910-15, no publisher. Color folding. map, opens up to 35 x 49 cm., folds down to 21 x 17 cm.,with. English inset key to numbered places, nicely executed.. This lovely map shows the Russian Quarter at the upper left, with a color key to the roads, various towns, railways, light railways, arable land, groves, rivers, main roads and principal buildings to the right. The "New Town," was desig- gned and layed out by the Japanese as its foothold in the area, shows the main streets with Japanese names, with their rail head of the South Manchuria Railway from Mukden and Dairen, which continues as the Kirin-Changchun line of Chin- ese Government Railways. The South Manchuria Co. Light rail- way to Taochiatun & Shihpiling off to the right. Below this is the old [Chinese] townof Shang-fou Ti. The map scale is 1/15,000. Nicely executed, this map shows the source of conflict between the Japanese vs. the Chinese and Russians. During this time there was great controversy about the Jap- anese control of the various railway lines, and the Chinese continued to sabotage the Japanese railways in a form of protest against Japanese occupation and harsh rule in China and especially in North China and the Manchurian area. The map shows how the Japanese isolated their "new town" above the river in a stratigic move away from the old Chinese town in an effort to protect their assets and new rail head. The key to places shows a large number of Japanese governmental and commercial interests, as well as a Bank of Chosen the Japanese name for [Korea]. A very good and obscure example.

      [Bermuda, 1910. Oblong folio. Contemporary three-quarter pebbled leather and cloth, gilt. Spine neatly repaired in matching calf. Gift inscription penciled on a front blank. Images generally crisp and clean. Very good. In a red cloth clamshell box, gilt leather label. A fascinating collection of early 20th-century photographs of Bermuda, from one of the noted local photographers of the era, William Weiss. Most of the photographs are stamped by Weiss's photography studio in the negative, and those that are not stamped are very likely also Weiss compositions. William Weiss was a commercial photographer active in Bermuda from about 1902 until his death in 1925. Many of the images here are iconic representations of Bermudian locations, also appearing later in reproductions, both monochromatic and in color, and on postcards. Some locations or subjects are identified in the image negative. The identifications within the images include the "Hotel Frascati," "Joyce's Dock Cave," "Date Palms" (two copies), "Cannon Rock," "A Fisherman's Home," "Whalers in Harbor," "Bananas," "H.M.S. PSYCHE in Dock," "Oldest House," "Devil's Hole," "Paw Paw," "Victoria Park," "Cedar Ave.," "Coral Rock," "Sperm Whale," "Screw Palm," "Swinging Bridge," "Royal Palms" (two copies), "Khyber Pass," "St. George's," "South Shore" (two different views), "Coca Nut Palm," "Gibbs Hill Light House," "Rock Quarry," "Lily Field," "Hamilton Harbor," "Tom Moore's House," "View from Gibbs Hill," "Ordinance Island," and "Rubber Tree." Eleven images feature human subjects, usually at work or utilized for reasons of perspective against architectural backgrounds. Of those photographs with human subjects, six contain images of people of color, including a delightful image of a older man playing a banjo while three children stand beside him, accompanying him on the triangle, snare drum, and tambourine, respectively. Determining an exact date for the album is a bit difficult. The image of the HMS Psyche in dry dock in Hamilton, Bermuda was taken in 1902 or 1903, after Weiss's arrival in Bermuda, but before the Psyche shipped out of Bermuda for service in Australia in December of 1903. So it is not logical that any earlier date could be assigned to the album than 1902. The album itself is stamped from the Bay City, Michigan studio of the photographic firm of Harman & Verner, which according to David Tinder's DIRECTORY OF EARLY MICHIGAN PHOTOGRAPHERS closed shop in 1911. As a result, it is fairly reasonable to assume that the album was assembled between 1902 and 1910, and probably nearer the earlier date. An exceptional assemblage of early Bermudian photography by one of the early masters of the art on the island. Together these images provide a rich picture of life in Bermuda, of the hardscrabble life of the inhabitants set against the beauty of the landscape, the harbor, the sea, the flora, the architecture, and more.

Vietnam] and that region. * KOREA: Korea was occupied and declared a Japanese protectorate in the 1905 under the Eulsa Treaty, and officially annexed in 1910 through the annexation treaty. Japan's involvement in the region began with the 1876 Treaty of Ganghwa during the Japanese called the "Joseon" period. * Korea continued to ruled by Japan for some 35-years as part of the imperialist expansion from 22 August 1910 to 15 August 1945. Japanese rule ended in 1945 upon the Japanese defeat in World War II. * TAIWAN: Between 1895 and 1945, Taiwan was a dependency of the Empire of Japan. The expansion into Taiwan was a part of Imperial Japan's general policy of southward expansion during the late 19th century. * As Taiwan was Japan's first overseas colony, Japanese intentions were to turn the island into a showpiece "model colony". As a result, much effort was made to improve the island's economy, industry, public works and to change its culture. Japan's control ended in 1945 like that of Korea. *** The key, shows a scale 1:8,744,000, miles and kilometers, railroads and canals. * The map is done in nice colors, with each province separated in red, rivers in black, international borders in red and yellow. * An excellent turn of the century map, nicely done, in excellent condition. * Color scans can be sent by email.

        [Photo Album]: The Goings on at Briarcliff College

      New York. 1910-1911. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". Black textured cloth over paper boards. Contains 87 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 5" x 7", without captions. Album is very good with some edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by an unnamed woman while she was attending Briarcliff College in Briarcliff Manor, New York from 1910 to 1911. Briarcliff College was originally founded as Mrs. Dow's School for Girls in 1903 at Briarcliff Lodge and by 1933 had become a junior college. The album shows the year of 1910 to 1911 with photos of the women participating in a cooking class, various theatrical performances, and posing around the campus. The theater was a huge part of the women's time at the college and featured many historic reenactments using Native American scenes and Middle Eastern costumes. One photo shows the women in various costumes, some of them dressed as men, clowns, and one in black face, with a hand drawn poster that says "Roasted Puppies" in the background. The women are also shown enjoying the seasons from ice skating in winter to picnicking in spring. One photo displays the women as a group playing mandolins and guitars. Another photo shows a small group of girls sitting in a field with rifles in the foreground.A nice collection of photographs representing a women's college in 1910 displaying the creativity and quirkiness of its students. .
