        La spedizione nel Karakoram e nell'Imalaia occidentale: 1909. Illustrata da Vittorio Sella.

      Zanichelli, Bologna, 1912. 2 v. (XIX 471 110 p. [33] c. di tav. [20] c. di tav. ) 27 cm m. perg. Filippo De Filippi nacque a Torino il 6 aprile 1869. Dopo essersi brillantemente laureato a soli 22 anni (4 luglio 1891) in Medicina e Chirurgia presso la Regia Università degli Studi di Torino si occupò per qualche anno di fisiologia e chimica biologica specializzandosi in istituti scientifici tedeschi ed austriaci. La prima esperienza come membro di una spedizione extraeuropea Filippi De Filippi la maturò nel 1897 anno in cui fu chiamato dal duca degli Abruzzi ad unirsi al gruppo che si sarebbe diretto al Sant'Elia (5514 m) in Alaska. Ciò che si conosce di questo viaggio culminato con la conquista della cima della montagna proviene principalmente dalla relazione stesa dallo stesso De Filippi e pubblicata nel 1900 da Hoepli con il titolo La spedizione di S.A.R. il Principe Luigi Amedeo di Savoia Duca degli Abruzzi al Monte Sant'Elia (Alaska). Nel 1909 prese parte alla spedizione del duca al Karakoram di cui questo volume è la relazione. Ancora oggi a distanza di un secolo il toponimo "Ghiacciaio De Filippi" ricorda a chiunque consulti una carta della regione del K2 la partecipazione ed il ruolo svolto dal Nostro in quella che è forse la più celebre delle spedizioni di Luigi Amedeo di Savoia. Segue la suite dei "Panorami e carte" con 18 grandi panorami in 17 fogli e 3 carte geografiche a colori il tutto custodito in una cartella in mezza pergamena con piatti in carta decorata. PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo bellissimo viaggio organizzato dal Duca degli Abruzzi nel 1909 sul massiccio pakistano del Karakorum e relazionato da Filippo De Filippi che partecipò alla spedizione. Sul K2 la comitiva italiana scoprì la via di salita lungo lo sperone est della montagna che è ancora oggi chiamata "Sperone degli Abruzzi". La vetta della celebre montagna non fu conquistata in quell''occasione (lo sarà solamente nel 1954 durante un'altra spedizione italiana quella guidata da Ardito Desio) ma il Duca degli Abruzzi e i UsatoBuono Anno pubblicazione: [1912].

        La spedizione nel Karakoram e nell'Imalaia Occidentale 1909. Relazione illustrata da Vittorio Sella

      Nicola Zanichelli, 1912. 2 parti in un vol. in - 8° grande (267x200mm), di cui la prima di testo, di pp. XIX, 471 + (4), 110, (6) di "Relazioni scientifiche"di Federico Negrotto Cambiaso, Domenico Omodei, Vittorio Novarese, ecc. Solida legatura editoriale m. pergamena con titolo in oro al dorso e piatti in cartone a decori floreali e a entrelac in bianco su fondo rosso. Sguardie decorate. Circa 200 immagini fotografiche in b.n. intercalate n.t. e 33 tavv. fotografiche f.t. (di cui una all'antiporta, con il K2 dalla cresta meridionale dello Staircase), il tutto da fotografie originali prese in loco da Vittorio Sella. Stampato su carta appositamente fabbricata dalla Cartiera Italiana di Torino; tavole fotoincise su rame e stampate da Neisenbach, Riffarth e C. di Berlino; le carte geografiche furono disegnate e stampate dall'Istituto Geografico Militare di Torino. Etichetta del tempo della libreria Casanova di Torino. Perfetto stato. Prima edizione (non è presente, come spesso avviene, il raro fascicolo di allegati, che doveva comprendere 18 grandi panorami in 17 fogli e 3 carte geografiche a colori, il tutto più volte ripiegato),dell'importante resoconto della spedizione al Karakorum del Duca degli Abruzzi, che, nel 1909, accompagnato dalle guide di Courmayeur Joseph e Laurent Petigax, Joseph Brocherel e César Ollier, tentò infruttuosamente di ascendere per primo sulla vetta del K2. Pur non arrivando alla vetta, il Duca degli Abruzzi salì sino ai 7.500 m del Bride Peak, altezza mai raggiunta sino ad allora dall'uomo. "Ancora una volta mi affido al Dott. Filippo De Filippi, mio compagno di viaggio, per la relazione completa della mia ultima spedizione. Gli sono riconoscente di aver accettato l'incarico, e spero che il rinnovato ricordo delle emozioni provate sia valso a rendergli meno gravoso il lavoro. La storia particolareggiata delle nostre peripezie darà conto delle difficoltà e degli ostacoli che ha incontrato la spedizione, meglio della succinta esposizione che ne ho potuto fare nelle mie conferenze al Club Alpino ed alla Società Geografica. La carta del ghiacciaio Baltoro unita a questo libro venne composta e delineata all'Istituto Geografico Militare di Firenze dai panorami fotogrammetrici, sussidiati da osservazioni col teodolite, eseguiti durante la campagna dal Ten. di Vascello Marchese Federico Negrotto Cambiaso.. Mi auguro che questo libro, colla efficace scorta delle bellissime illustrazioni di Vittorio Sella, riesca a comunicare ai lettori l'impressione profonda che fece su di noi la natura grandiosa nella quale vivemmo per pochi mesi. Il nostro lavoro non sarà stato inutile se potrà riuscire di qualche aiuto ai futuri esploratori di quelle lontane regioni" (dalla prefazione del Duca degli Abruzzi stesso). Il De Filippi (Milano, 1814 - Hong Kong, 1867) fu naturalista, allievo dello Zendrini a Pavia, professore di zoologia a Torino e, nella stessa città, direttore del Museo Zoologico (di cui arricchì straordinariamente le collezioni) e membro dell'Accademia delle Scienze. Senatore dal 1865, morì a bordo della corvetta "Magenta" in prossimità di Hong Kong. Si occupò di zoologia generale, di ittiologia, elmintologia, erpetologia, geologia, mineralogia, anatomia comparata, embriologia, sostenendo inizialmente la tesi già altamente obsoleta della generazione spontanea, che presto ritrattò. Tra i primi introduttori italiani del darwinismo, con la celebre conferenza dell'11 gennaio 1864 "L'uomo e le scimmie", più volte ripubblicata e destinata a scandalizzare il mondo scientifico italiano, ancora impreparato alle rivoluzionarie tesi dell'evoluzionismo, dette importanti contributi allo studio dello sviluppo dei Trematodi. Perret, 1657: "Ouvrage très rare, et très recherché pour l'exceptionnelle qualité des photographies de Vittorio Sella". Yakushi, F71a. Neate, F - 26. Italiano

Then, too, he was really more attached to truth than the poets are; for the latter do violence to their own stories in order to make them probable; but he by announcing a story which everyone knows not to be true, told the truth by the very fact that he did not claim to be relating real events" (Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Book V:14).Lattimore and Haskell, pp. 38-9.

Contrary to the practice of his peers, Kuhnert distinguished himself by sketching tropical animals in the wild, not in zoos. He made pictures by sketching, etching, watercolor, and oil painting. Kuhnert is considered one of the most important German animal painters of his time. As he was not a professional hunter, it often took a great deal of effort to track down his subjects.

        Henry Bing: Strassenszene (Originalzeichnung)

      1912 - Tusche, Farbstift und Deckweiß auf Papier. 30 x 23,5 cm. Rechts unten signiert. Biografie Henry Bing (1888 Paris - 1965 Paris): Der französische Lithograf, Zeichner und Maler Henry Bing zählt bereits mit 17 Jahren zu den Mitarbeitern der beiden Münchner Zeitschriften Jugend und Simplicissimus. Innerhalb eines guten Jahrzehnts werden sie knapp 900 Werke des Künstlers veröffentlichen und damit seinem Namen einen hohen Bekanntheitsgrad verschaffen. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass sich von ihm weder eine Porträtfotografie noch Informationen zu seiner Ausbildung erhalten haben. Spätestens ab 1905 lebt Bing in der bayerischen Kunstmetropole und findet als Stammgast im Café Stefanie, einem beliebten Treffpunkt moderner literarischer und künstlerischer Kreise, Anschluss an die Schwabinger Bohème. Neben den Einnahmen aus der Publikation seiner Karikaturen in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus lebt er vom Verkauf der Originale. Diesen übernehmen ab 1912 die renommierten Kunsthändler Franz Josef Brakl und Hans Goltz. Der Erste Weltkrieg, den Bing als französischer Staatsbürger in deutscher Haft verbringt, bereitet seiner Künstlerexistenz ein jähes Ende. 1920 kehrt er nach Paris zurück und handelt fortan als Galerist für Klassische Moderne mit Werken von Henry Rousseau, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani sowie Chaim Soutine. Bings frühe Beiträge in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus orientieren sich stilistisch und inhaltlich an den Karikaturen älterer Kollegen, vor allem denen Rudolf Wilkes. Bald entwickelt er jedoch eine eigene Handschrift und entdeckt die Außenseiter der Gesellschaft als Thema für sich. Vagabunden und Bettler, Tagelöhner und Fabrikarbeiter, Dienstmägde und Marktfrauen, aber auch Künstler, Literaten und Vertreter der Demi-Monde, oft angesiedelt in der Welt der Kaffeehäuser und Varietés, werden zu Bings bevorzugten Motiven. Seine meist auf wenige Figuren reduzierten Szenen bringt er vorzugsweise mit Tusche und Farbstift flott zu Papier, wobei er die physiognomische Erscheinung der Modelle stark vereinfachend überzeichnet, um den jeweils dahinterstehenden Menschentypus freizulegen. Hierbei bleibt stets das empathische Auge des Künstlers spürbar. Denn ungeachtet der satirischen Stoßrichtung der Darstellung, die in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus durch eine Textpointe zusätzlich unterstrichen wird, ist Bing nie verletzend. Vielmehr wirbt er um Verständnis und Sympathie für all jene, die das Schicksal an den Rand der Gesellschaft gedrängt hat. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photograph Album Documenting Life on the Sac & Fox and Colville Indian Reservations

      Oklahoma and Washington, 1912. Photograph Album. Very good. 33 photographs mounted in a 16-page album that measures 7" x 10". The cardboard album cover is stamped with a snakeskin design that Ms. Stephens has personalized with her name, monogram, and titled, "Photographic Miscellany." The photographs measure 2.5" x 4.25". All are captioned and protected by tissue protectors inserted between the album's leaves. An unaddressed letter from Ms. Stephens used to forward the album to a friend or family member is laid in. It is signed with her monogram and bears the return address of the U. S. Allotment Service, St. Mary's Mission, via Omak, Washington. The album, letter, and photographs are all in nice shape. Four photographs show images of the Sac and Fox Reservation in Oklahoma. Two photographs show boys and girls at the reservation school; one is of a windstorm at the school farm, and one is of Dolly Bigwater and two of her children. The other 29 images are of the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington, which was home to a number of tribes including the Chief Joseph Band of the Nez Perce. Those photographs show the Almira-Nespelem Stage, the stagecoach aboard a Columbia River ferry, Siwash Indians including two named Klooch and Mak-It (at the time "Siwash" carried no derogatory connotation but was simply a Chinook Jargon term used to denote a member of a northwestern tribe), "Indian Camp Nespelem" including its Hee-Hee House, tepees, preparation for a dance, a war dance, a native herald mounted on horseback, rodeo contests, horseback racing, etc. Although none of the photographs show Ms. Stephens, several show her two Allotment Service co-workers, Faustus P. Hardesty and Lewsor Smaerts, at work and relaxing in and by their two tent home-offices at Camp Nespelem. The Allotment Service was created by the now-discredited Dawes Act of 1887 to replace the failed reservation system, lift Native Americans out of poverty, and assimilate them into American society. After reservations were surveyed by the Allotment Service, adult male tribal members and married women were allotted 160 acres each for their own personal homestead. When the allotments had been completed, remaining reservation land was auctioned off to white homesteaders. From its inception, the act was decried by many as an attempt to steal tribal lands. Regardless of intent, over time it became clear that for many reasons, the program was more detrimental than the reservation system and it was finally completely abandoned in 1948. These images of Allotment Service workers living and working among Native Americans are exceptionally scarce. As of 2016, there are no similar collections in the trade and no auction records are listed at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows only three similar albums are in institutional collections; two at Yale and one at Princeton.

        Aesop's Fables

      1912. Charles Folkard's Aesop's FablesEdition DeLuxe Limited to Two Hundred and Fifty CopiesTwelve Superb Color Plates and Numerous Black and White IllustrationsFOLKARD, Charles, illustrator. Aesop's Fables. London: Adam & Charles Black, [1912]. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 250 numbered copies, signed by the publisher (of which this is number 138). Quarto (10 x 7 1/2 inches; 253 x 191 mm.). xx, 209, [1, blank], [2, advertisements] pp. Twelve full-page tipped-in color plates, each one mounted on thick brown paper stock with descriptive tissue-guards. Numerous black and white illustrations throughout the text. Publisher's white cloth, front cover and spine pictorially decorated in color and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Minimal soiling to covers, some light foxing to end-papers, otherwise a near fine copy.Charles James Folkard (1878-1963) was an English illustrator. He was born in Lewisham, South London and worked for a period of time as a conjuror after attending a show at the Egyptian Hall in London. His artistic talent became evident when he began designing his own programmes for his magic shows. He contributed humorous drawings to Little Folks and the Tatler, and received his breakthrough in 1910 when he entered the gift book market with The Swiss Family Robinson. In 1915, he created Teddy Tail, a popular cartoon character who ran in the Daily Mail newspapers for decades. In 1911, he created seventy-seven drawings and eight watercolor plates for Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio, a volume which remained the definitive edition and in print for decades. The Children's Shakespeare and Grimm's Fairy Tales were published the same year and represent his first work for the publishing firm of A & C Black. The partnership lasted twenty-seven years. His next works for the firm were Aesop's Fables (1912), The Arabian Nights (1913), and Ottoman Wonder Tales (1915), a work that evokes the style of Persian manuscripts.After World War I, Folkard continued to produce arrays of books for the firm of A. & C. Black including Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes (1919), British Fairy and Folk Tales (1920), Songs from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (1921), and The Magic Egg (1922). His masterpiece The Land of Nursery Rhyme (1932) was praised for its watercolor and gouache depictions of Old King Cole, The Queen of Hearts, and other nursery rhyme favorites.In his later years, he produced several volumes for the Children's Illustrated Classics series published by Dent including Roger Lancelyn Green's anthology The Book of Nonsense, by Many Authors (1956). The volume included his imaginative study A Nonsense Miscellany, a seaside scene that incorporated Baron Munchausen, Struwwelpeter, and a variety of characters from the works of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear.

Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant - garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re - remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition.

Signature du cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur droit de l'œuvre, et signature du cachet de l'atelier au verso. Louis Anquetin, grâce à son amitié avec le critique d'art Gustave Geoffroy qui fut nommé administrateur des Manufactures Nationales, obtint trois commandes de cartons pour les Gobelins, la "Bourgogne" en 1911, un tapis "Les cygnes", et en 1912 "La Normandie", tapisserie. Très bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencée au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant - garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti - pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re - souvenir des leçons de Michel - Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle. Ne laissant que quelques œuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques. En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses œuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint - Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc. une feuille
