      - Paris, Alphonse Lemerre, 1870. In-12 reliure de maroquin et de box, dos et première moitié verticale des plats de maroquin cerise, box de la même couleur sur la deuxième moitié, séparé par un listel de maroquin et 2 filets à froid, titre doré en long, petit fer à la clé de sol répété deux fois sur le maroquin du premier plat, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, sous étui bordé de maroquin (rel. Creuzevault), (2) f. de faux-titre et titre, 38 p., (1.) f. d'achevé d'imprimer, (1) f. bl. Edition originale de premier tirage, imprimé sur papier vélin teinté, à l’adresse d’Alphonse Lemerre sur la couverture. L’un des meilleurs recueils de Verlaine, qu’il édita à compte d’auteur. Imprimé en en juin 1870 en pleine guerre franco-prussienne à un tirage limité à 590 exemplaires, le livre ne fut mis en vente qu’en 1872 après les événements de la Commune de Paris auxquels Verlaine participa et à sa fuite de Paris pour échapper à la répression qui s’en suivit. Composé de vingt et un poèmes, ce célèbre recueil fut inspiré à Verlaine par sa passion pour Mathilde Mauté de Fleurville, qui n’avait que 16 ans quand il la rencontra en juin 1869 et qu’il épousa le 11 août 1870. Verlaine en dit lui-même dans ses ‘Confessions’: "Victor Hugo me disait à son retour en France: ‘C’est une fleur dans un obus’. Je ne sais si c’est bien vrai, mais toujours est-il que j’ai, dès l’origine, gardé une prédilection pour ce pauvre petit recueil où tout un cœur purifié s’est mis ". (Carteret, II, 418. Van Bever & Monda, ‘Bibliographie de P. Verlaine’, p. 13-14. Vicaire VII, 991). Quelques petits accrocs de papier restaurés en marge de quelques pages. Bel exemplaire, avec ses couvertures et dos conservées, dans une intéressante reliure de Creuzevault. 2800 € [Attributes: First Edition]

        Album di 40 fotografie originali raffiguranti aborigeni dell'Australia

      Album in piena pelle contenente 40 fotografie stampate all'albumina formato 'carta de visite' (105 x 65) mm ,con al verso impronta di vari studi fotografici, circa 1870. Le foto raffigurano aborigeni dell'Australia, Nuova Zelanda delle isole Fiji, Nuova Caledonia, Samoa, ecc.. Di seguito l'elenco di quelle identificate. 8 fotografie eseguite dai fratelli Dufty con alcuni annotazioni a matita al verso : - Salomon Islander - Fijian - Santo Woman - Ralan Woman - Fijiman 4 fotografie di James Bragges tra cui una raffigurante Renata Kawepo Tama - Ki - Hiku Rangi 4 fotografie di John Paine raffiguranti aborigeni a mezzo busto con tatuaggi incisi sul dorso 1 di Tho. E. Price 1 di Herbert raffigurante 22 foto presumibilmente degli stessi fotografi o loro collaboratori ma senza impronta dello studio al verso Edward Henry Dufty (1850-1905), figlio del fotografo di Bath Francis Dufty e sua moglie Martha (nata Stow), lasciò l'Inghilterra per l'Australia nel 1865 con il fratello maggiore Francis (Frank) Herbert. Mentre era in Australia, Edward ha lavorato come fotografo itinerante a Victoria. Insieme a suo fratello Walter, che arrivò in Australia nel 1871, Edward si stabilì in Nuova Caledonia nei primi anni del 1870, dove i due fondarono uno studio di ritratti. I loro fratelli Frank e Alfred si stabilirono nelle isole Figi dal 1871. Nel loro studio a Noumea, Edward e Walter dedicarono molta attenzione a fotografare gli indigeni Kanak della Nuova Caledonia. Dopo il 1875, quando Walter lasciò la Nuova Caledonia per l'isola di Norfolk, Edward continuò a dirigere lo studio Noumea da solo; l'impronta dello studio sui ritratti della fine del 1870 porta il suo nome da solo. James Bragge nato in Inghilterra, si è trasferito in Nuova Zelanda quando aveva circa trent'anni. Ha aperto uno studio fotografico e ha anche scattato fotografie sui viaggi in tutto il paese. Il prodotto di questi serve come un record dello sviluppo del paese in questo momento. Nella sua prima infanzia la professione di Bragge era quella di un ebanista. Fu solo con il progresso della tecnologia che nei primi anni Sessanta fu in grado di dedicarsi alla fotografia. È difficile accertare come abbia sviluppato le sue capacità nella fotografia. Simile a molti fotografi, ha iniziato come fotografo di ritratti in studio. Più successivamente ha viaggiato intorno all'isola del nord più bassa, con la sua camera oscura contenuta in una carrozza trainata da cavalli. Ha viaggiato in piccole città e ha scattato foto delle location, alcune delle quali includevano la popolazione locale. Sembra che abbia realizzato delle cartoline dalle foto e le abbia vendute ai cittadini. A loro volta mandavano queste cartoline al loro parente in Inghilterra, come una specie di curiosità di come era la Nuova Zelanda. La sua abilità fotografica è molto evidente nelle numerose foto scattate durante le spedizioni Wairarapa. William Main afferma nel suo libro, Bragge's Wellington e il Wairarapa, "Le scene di strada del 1869 non sono rare, ma quelle piene di persone sono". [4] Questo potrebbe spiegare l'interesse per le fotografie di Bragge. Una grande varietà delle sue foto includeva persone, alcune delle quali erano addirittura ritenute di Bragge stesso. "Era il 1876 quando Bragge attaccò per la prima volta una camera oscura mobile a un cavallo, e cavalcò verso nord verso il Wairarapa, scattando foto lungo il percorso: luoghi come Danniverke, Norsewood ed Eketahuna, dove enormi distese di terra venivano ripulite e ponti stradali e gli insediamenti erano in costruzione.Le foto di Bragge erano immediatamente popolari tra il pubblico di Wellington, che le vedeva come rappresentanti del progresso e oggi sono preziose testimonianze del processo di insediamento. "[5 John Paine (1833-1908) è nato in Inghilterra. Lavorò come fotografo attorno a Tamworth dal 1869 al 1874. Paine sposò Mary Baker a Waterloo Sydney nel 1874. Nel 1875 fondò uno studio fotografico al 96 Elizabeth street, Waterloo, Sydney, pubblicizzando le viste della città e delle Blue Mountains in vendita. Nel 1879 espose all'esposizione internazionale di Sydney dove vinse una medaglia d'argento. Ha fotografato le strade della Federazione del Commonwealth nel 1901. Le sue fotografie del Pacifico si riferiscono al viaggio dell'HMS Espiegle. Paine diede istruzioni alla fotografia a un sottufficiale e conduttore di marinaio, e lasciò a bordo una macchina fotografica e dei piatti asciutti. (SMH 4 ottobre 1883 p.6) Thomas Edward Price nacque a Builth, Breaconshire, nel Galles, in Inghilterra, nel 1844, e accompagnò i suoi genitori a Melbourne, Victoria, nel 1852. Arrivò in Nuova Zelanda nel 1863 e si sposò nel 1894 con Annie, figlia del signor WD Meares, (sic) di Canterbury, nel Kent, in Inghilterra. Il signor Price fu nominato alla Commissione della pace nel 1890. W. Lindt nacque in Germania nel 1845 , all'età di diciasette anni scappò di casa in una nave danese. Arrivò in Nuova Guinea dove subito rimase affascinato dagli indigeni e dal loro stile di vita. I suoi viaggi lo portarono a Grafton nel distretto di Clarence River nel New South Wales, dove divenne assistente di Wagner, il fotografo locale, il cui studio acquisì nel 1868. Fu ora che i suoi interessi antropologici e fotografici lo spinsero a ritrarre gli aborigeni .Nel 1885 aderì alla spedizione per l'annessione della Nuova Guinea sud-orientale e venne nominato fotografo ufficiale, su incarico speciale di Sua Maestà Graziosa. Lindt possedeva la giusta combinazione di qualità per questo lavoro: una scrupolosa attenzione ai dettagli, la competenza tecnica e la qualità duratura delle sue stampe, una mentalità scientifica che aiutava le sue osservazioni Non aveva difficoltà a imporre la sua volontà ai selvaggi, che si atteggiavano volentieri, spesso in quadri complessi, per il "malocchio", poiché così la telecamera appariva inevitabilmente alle menti primitive. Nel 1889 tornò a nord, visitando l'isola di Bega nel gruppo delle Fiji, dove realizzò fotografie sensazionali

"Lebanon was the centre of Arabic lexicography in the nineteenth century. In 1867-70 the celebrated dictionary "Muhit al-Muhit" by the distinguished scholar Butrus al-Bustani was published, compiled in the modern arrangement. In the introduction the author stated that the Arab world needed a dictionary so arranged, and the "Qamus" [of Fairuzabadi], for all his popularity was hard to use because of its rhyme arrangement. He therefore took the material of the "Qamus", and supplemented it from other lexicographers, using post-classical authors for some of his examples. This dictionary was highly praised by Arab scholars, and its fame eclipsed that of another dictionary written during the same period "Aqrab al-Mawarid" by Sa'id al-Sartuni".(John A.

        A Collection of Three Early Views of Canton (Guangzhou) Landmarks.

      This is an excellent group of early photographs of cultural landmarks in Canton (Guangzhou), by Lai Fong, China's foremost 19th century Chinese photographer. Guangzhou, often called the City of Five Goats based on the legend that five beings with five goats brought bunches of grain to the local people blessing them for eternity with fertility and prosperity, has always held an important role in the history of China. It was the capital of three local dynasties: the Nanyue, Southern Han, and Southern Ming. The city's harbor was one of the starting points of the Marine Silk Road. This collection of photographs by the great 19th century Chinese photographer Lai Fong, whose work is distinct for its artfulness and high quality, offers early photographic views of three of Canton's most revered landmarks: the Hall of 500 Louhan, the Pazhou Pagoda, and the Zhenhai Tower. Hall of 500 Louhan of Hualin Temple LAI, FONG, Canton. No. 317. Wa Lum Temple. Canton, ca. 1870. Albumen print, mounted. 8 ¼ x 10 ½. Printed letterpress caption on verso: "No. 317. - ..." This is an important photograph by Lai Fong of the original Hall of 500 Louhan (Arhat) at Haulin Temple. According to legend during the 6th century Bodhidharma, a revered Buddhist monk, preached Buddhism from an alter he set up in Xiguan. In 1655, Zongfu, a Zen master, built a temple at this location that he named Hualin. The temple was divided into several halls. The most impressive hall was the Hall of 500 Louhan, which contained 500 gold painted life-sized statues of monks each with their unique characteristics. Buddhist tradition gives accounts of groups of 16, 18, or 500 luohans who were commanded by Buddha to await the coming of Maitreya, the Future Buddha. The original sculptures photographed by Lai Fong were destroyed. The Hall of 500 Louhan was rebuilt in 1997 and remains one of Guangzhou's great cultural landmarks. Pazhou Pagoda LAI, FONG, Pazhou Pagoda No. 289. Canton, ca.1875. Albumen print, mounted. 8 ¼ x 10 ½ inches. Printed letterpress caption: "No. 289. - Pachao Pagoda, Canton. This pagoda is near to Whampoa, it is nine stories in height and has been built for a great number of years ...." This is an early photograph by Lai Fong of the Pazhou Pagoda, which was referred to as the "Pillar of Pazhou" during the Qing Dynasty. The Pazhou Pagoda was built during the Ming Dynasty as a Buddhist landmark on an island on the southern bank of the Pearl River close to Guangzhou's two other ancient pagodas, Chigang Pagoda and Flower or Hua Ta Pagoda. The Pazhou Pagoda was used as a guide for merchant ships traveling on the Marine Silk Road. Zhenhai Tower LAI, FONG, Zhenhai Tower, No. 260. Canton, ca.1875. Albumen print, mounted. 8 ¼ x 10 ½ inches. Printed letterpress caption: "No. 260. - Pagoda, Canton. This place of worship is built on the walls of the city and is Five Storey in height... " Lai Fong's early photograph of Zhenhai Tower, or the Five-Story Pagoda, offers a unique view of the tower and the old city wall, an important Guangzhou landmark. Zhenhai Tower was built during the Ming Dynasty by Zhu Liangzu in an effort to subdue an omen. Once called the First Tower of South China, Zhenhai Tower was one of old Guangzhou's most famous monuments. The tower's elevated location provided a spectacular view of the city. The tower is now the Guangzhou Museum which houses over 5,000 years of relics and documents related to Guangzhou's history. Zhenhai Tower is one of the tallest and oldest buildings in Yuexiu Park. 3 Albumen prints, mounted. 8 ¼ x 10 ½ inches. Printed letterpress captions versos.

        Photograph View of Rome from the Tiber River with Castel Sant'Angelo and Saint Peter's Basilica

      Rome, c. 1870 14 x 9 in. Albumen print, on original mount. Short closed tears and some foxing to mount, image in fine condition. A fine 19th century photograph of landmarks of Rome. This early photograph, looking south over the Tiber River toward Castel Sant'Angelo and then further on to the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica, captures a view of some of Rome's most important landmarks. This vantage point had been popular with painters from the beginning of the 19th century. Painters Alexander Brullov (1826), Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1826-28) and Rudolf Weigmann (1834) all produced images of this scene, and photographers later adopted the popular view for tourist photographs like the one seen here. The invention of photography radically expanded the viewer's access to far away places. As 19th-century American photographer Marcus Aurelius Root described,"What, heretofore, the traveler alone could witness, ... even the humblest may now behold, substantially, without crossing his own threshold." Saint Peter's Basilica, arguably the most important Christian landmark in the world, is traditionally considered to be the final resting place of St. Peter. Castel Sant'Angelo, also known as Hadrian's Tomb, was a mausoleum commissioned by Emperor Hadrian in 135 CE.
