        Photo Album - Views of Peking, Silk Factories, Buddhist & Civilian Customs

      China, 1930. Peking (Beijing), circa 1930. Album of photographs from a visit to Peking featuring unique views of the Summer Palace, as well as special attention to Buddhist and civilian custom. Contains 43 photographs, including 1 large photograph by White Brothers, mounted with corners onto black cardstock leaves separated with webbed tissue guards. Oblong 8vo. string-tied cloth album measuring approximately 32 x 23.5 cm. Photographs vary in size, most measuring approximately 14 x 8.5 cm, and the largest 24,. x 18.5 cm. Very Good Condition, excellent crisp images. With a keen eye for capturing the essence of indigenous life in China's long-standing cardinal city, interest in this album is three-fold and presents splendidly uncommon scenes from nearly a century past. The foreigner evidently held a special appreciation for Buddhist custom, seizing the unique opportunity to observe monks gathering at temples and performing an exercise in a temple courtyard. Photographs of the ascetic monks are quite uncommon for the period. At the Yonghe Temple (Yonghe Lamasery, or popularly "Lama Temple") he also photographs the urn-like structure in its courtyard. Shrines and deity statues and other motifs depict various aspects of the nontheistic religion or Dharma. Striking photographs also capture the routines and craftsmanship of regular civilian families as they wash door panels in the river, travel on the city's canal system in sampans, and on mules in outlying regions, for example. Especially fascinating is an elderly man constructing a sampan by hand, a modest funeral procession transporting a covered sedan, women and children working at a silk reeling factory, and a street juggler. [In the early 1930s, the Bank of China turned its attention to domestic production. Yarn, flour and silk consisted of China's three major industries, accounting for eighty percent of the total industrial loans.] An unusually thorough sojourn through the Summer Palace provides pleasingly ambient views of the courtyards, bridges and waterways, ancient architecture, pavillions, and famous arches. The album begins with a lovely view of the Dragon Wall at Winter Palace, the most famously known of only nine dragon walls in all of China. [Winter Palace is situated west of the northern gate of Beijing's Forbidden City.] Some other views include: • A terracota warrior statue on the road to the Ming Dynasty Tombs • Two Chinese junks on a river • The Lingxing Gates and Circular Mound Altar at the Temple of Heaven • A tall ornamental marble pillar as those found in the Forbidden City • A large sepia photograph shows the wear of time as the ruins of a stone and brick structure over water is being consumed by trees encroaching upon it • The entrance gate and the White Dagoba on Qionghua Island in Beihai Park (northwest of the Forbidden City) SS Mongolia (1922) was a steam turbine-driven twin-screw passenger-and-cargo ocean liner launched in 1922 for the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O) for service from the United Kingdom to Australia. Her sister ship was SS Manchuria. For most of her career she plied the India-China-Australia route. Later she was renamed the SS Europa and sailed around New Zealand and then as a cruise ship in the Caribbean. She was scrapped in 1963. White Brothers - The photographers of the copyrighted photograph are twin brothers born in Cooranbong, New South Wales, Australia, Herbert Clarence White (1896-1962) and James Henry White (1896-1954), sons of William C. White who in 1894 led the Australian Union, and his wife Ethel May (née Lacey) of Tasmania. When the twins were four years of age the family returned to California, being largely influenced by their grandparents, Ellen G. White and James White - founders of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church - especially Mrs. Ellen White who inspired and facilitated their careers in publishing and photography very early on. Having grown up in St. Helena, California, next to their grandmother Ellen G. White's Elmshaven home, and with equipment provided by her, together Herbert and James operated a print shop they called "The Elmshaven Press." Their endeavours taught them the printing trade and also paid for their academy and college. Upon entering college they moved their operation to Angwin, where it eventually became the Pacific Union College Press. Seemingly inseparable, both men lived and worked for several years in China, in missions, photography and publishing. James was a missionary in northern China, serving with his wife Margaret from 1921 to 1929. He also became a professional photographer in this time, travelling through China with his brother. Herbert arrived in China two years later than James, and managed the "Signs of the Time" publishing house in Shanghai, China, from 1923 to 1929. During this time he, too, became a professional photographer. In later years he made public lectures and operated his own business H.C. White Publications in Riverside, California. Together they published the following photographic work before leaving China: "Romantic China: An album containing forty-two photographic studies of China's historic monuments and charming beauty spots complete with descriptive and historical notes," Shanghai: Browhite Arts, 1930. Herbert earlier published, "Peking the Beautiful: comprising seventy photographic studies of the celebrated monuments of China's northern capital and its environs complete with descriptive and historical notes. With an Introduction by Hu Shih, former professor of philosophy at the National University of Peking." Shanghai: Commercial Press, 1927.. Very Good.

An den namentlich nicht genannten Musikhistoriker Otto Erich Deutsch betreffs biographischer Daten zur Beziehung zwischen Michail Bakunin und Ferdinand Kürnberger bzw. Detailfragen zur Geschichte des Sozialismus bzw. Anarchismus: "Tengoborski, Ludw. (1793-1857) war ein russischer Ekonomist [!] und Staatsmann. Als ökonomischer Experte und Beirat hat er in den 1830 und 1840-ger Jahren verschiedene Aufträge im Dienste der russischen Diplomatie versehen. Er hat viele Bücher und Artikel in deutscher und französischer Sprache verfasst, in denen er die ökonomische Politik des Zarismus verteidigt. Er ist speziell einige Mal gegen die Polen-Unabhängigkeit auftgetreten. Im Jahre 1848 wurde er als [!] Mitglied des russischen Staats-Rats ernannt [.]" (Br. v. 3. III. 1930). - Der sozialistische Schriftsteller und Historiker Nikolajewski veröffentlichte u. a. eine biographische Darstellung von Jenny Marx (1931; vgl. Emig A1159) sowie gemeinsam mit Otto Maenchen-Helfen eine Biographie über Karl Marx (vgl. ebd. A1276). - O. E. Deutsch (1883-1967), ehedem Kunstkritiker der Wiener Tageszeitung ‘Die Zeit’ und Assistent am Kunsthistorischen Institut der Universität Wien, erwarb nach der Rückkehr aus dem Ersten Weltkrieg eine Buchhandlung, gliederte ihr einen Verlag an und war seit Mitte der zwanziger Jahre als Privatgelehrter und als Bibliothekar der Musiksammlung Anthony van Hoboken in Wien tätig. 1938 nach Großbritannien emigriert, gab er den ‘British Union Catalogue of music published before 1800’ heraus, erwarb die britische Staatsbürgerschaft und war als Gelehrter und Dozent in Cambridge sowie am British Council tätig. Nach Österreich zurückgekehrt, wurde er Mitglied des Zentralinstituts für Mozartforschung am Salzburger Mozarteum, dessen Vorsitz er 1962-65 gemeinsam mit Bernhard Paumgartner und Alfred Orel innehatte.

        A collection of 18 personal New Year greetings etchings and drypoints by Troy Kinney 1916-1937

      1930 - A grouping of etchings and drypoints of various dancers created by Troy, and used by Troy and his wife Margaret as New Year greetings. The earliest, 1916, depicts a pre-Revolutionary couple in a minuet style dance. Through the years the portrayals included ballerinas, mythical satyrs, classical and whimsical risqué ballerinas, Russian dancers and exotic dancers. For a number of years, following the move to Connecticut, a whimsical ballerina was portrayed doing various household chores from chopping wood to stoking a fire. Several signed in pencil. Some with brief New Year greetings. The only indication as to the recipients is a "Dear Anna & Nat" at the base of one card. Each measures approx 5 ½" x 4 ½". Some mounted or with mats. Troy Kinney ((Kansas City, 1871 - Falls Village, Connecticut, 1938) was most notable for his works portraying dance performers, fanciful subjects, and classically styled nudes. He worked with dance performers, including Ruth St. Denis, Anna Pavlova, and Sophie Pflanz among others. He co-authored with his wife the books "Social Dancing of Today" and "The Dance: Its Place in Art and Life", for which he traveled throughout the world to study various dance styles. It remains to this day one of the most comprehensive works on the subject. Kinney's original drypoints and etchings are now included in the collections of the Library of Congress, Washington, DC., the Chicago Art Institute, the Cleveland Museum and the New York Public Library.
