        [CHINA, VIETNAM AND SINGAPORE] 米僊漫遊画乗 Beisen Manyu Gajo [i.e. Beisen's China Travel Album]

      Tokyo: Jihei Tanaka, 1890. 2 vols. 16x23 cm (oblong large octavo). Vol. 1: t.p., 28 leaves, with 16 double-page and 17 singlepage woodblock illustrations in text.; Vol. 2: 28 leaves, with 19 doublepage and 13 single-page woodblock illustrations in text. Text and illustrations within single border. Original Japanese fukuro toji bindings: brownish paper covers with hand coloured woodblock vignettes and titles on the front covers; leaves sewn together with strings. Ink manuscript kanji on the bottom edges and back covers of both volumes. Red ink stamps on the first illustration in each volume. Covers and title labels slightly rubbed and soiled, otherwise a very good set. First and only edition. Attractive collection of views of Far East and South-East Asia, from Japan to Singapore, depicted by noted Japanese artist Kubota Beisen (1852-1906) during his eight-month voyage to the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1889. The book was originally intended to be published in one volume, but due to a high public demand, the second volume was published the next year (1890). Since the volumes were published separately, with a one-year gap, the complete set is scarce. The views show Kiyomi beach (Shizuoka prefecture, Japan), Nagato Bakan (Shimonoseki, Japan), Shanghai (Suzhou Creek, East Gate market, and others), Guangdong, Hong Kong (including the town of Kowloon), mountains of Annam, Mekong River; there are also portraits of Chinese soldiers, prisoners, women with children, rickshaws, palanquin carriers, barbers, opium smokers, actors (and an interior of a Chinese theatre), house boats, local birds and animals, Vietnamese villages, and a series of views of Singapore (the harbour, several street scenes, a market, a group of hunters with a killed tiger), et al. Each volume houses the first page of the printed pink wrappers and a table of contents, the first volume also has a calligraphic title page page and a one-page introduction. The front cover of the fukuro toji binding of each volume is decorated with the image of a steamship under Japanese flag sailing in a bowl of water. ''Kubota Beisen is one of the most celebrated artists of Modern Japan. ...unlike the works of so many artists from that city, his creations are characterized rather by bold design and lightness of touch that by elegance and elaborate finish. We may say that he is the first painter in the Japanese style who has freed himself from the fetters of the old rules.'' (The Far East: An English Edition of the Kokumin-No-Tomo).

        Gustav Adolfs torg med gamla operan och Gustav II Adolfs ryttarstaty, Jakobs kyrktorn i fonden. Vaktstyrka från Svea livgarde.

      Blyertsteckning. Osignerad. 20 x 26 cm. Proveniens: Thure Boltenstern (f. 1890), äldste son till Fritz von Dardels dotter Amélie. Med notering av denne a tergo: "Att denna teckning [...] är utförd av F. von Dardel (1817-1901) intygas av konstnärens dotterson T. M. Boltenstern". Teckningen torde vara utförd tidigt under konstnärens militära karriär, i slutet av 1830-talet eller början av 1840-talet. Han har uppenbarligen haft befäl över en högvaktstyrka från Svea livgarde på Gustav Adolfs torg: I förgrunden syns en puka och ett par bajonettförsedda vapen lutade mot vapenställ motsvarande dem som än idag finns framför högvaktsflygeln på Stockholms slott. Fritz von Dardel som var född i schweiziska Neuchâtel anlände till Stockholm våren 1835 från Skåne (Vendes artilleriregemente) och gick in vid Andra livgardet. Han övergick till Svea livgarde 1837 och tjänstgjorde vid regementet i 27 år.På Gustaf Adolfs torg hade det länge funnits en fast vaktstyrka, ett "Corps de Garde" bemannat av en befälhavare och ett antal meniga. Vaktstyrkor av detta slag stod för ordningshållningen i Stockholm och fanns på flera håll i staden, bl. a. på Östermalmstorg och Södermalms torg. Som regel bemannades de av Svea livgarde på grund av dess permanenta förläggning till huvudstaden. Under Gustav III:s regering skall den fasta vakten på Gustav Adolfs torg ha dragits in och ersatts med en postering i det nyuppförda operahuset, som dock endast var bemannad under operaföreställningar.Bebyggelsen på bilden tyder även på att teckningen är utförd före de nybyggnader längs torgets norra sida som bl. a. inbegrep Hotell Rydberg (1857). Gustav III:s operahus revs dock först 1892 för att ge plats åt det oskarianska operahuset, som invigdes 1898.Svea livgardes officerskårs stiftelse äger en samling akvareller av Fritz von Dardel med anknytning till hans tid vid regementet.

        TRAVELS IN AFRICA DURING THE YEARS 1875-1878. [with,] TRAVELS IN AFRICA DURING THE YEARS 1879-1883. [with,] TRAVELS IN AFRICA DURING THE YEARS 1882-1886. Translated from the German by A.H. Keane, F.R.G.S.

      London and Philadelphia: Chapman and Hall, 1890, 1891, 1892. 3 volumes. First edition in English of each volume, a complete set of the work. Extensively illustrated with hundreds of illustrations, many being full page, charts and maps throughout all volumes and with a large folding coloured map in the second and third volumes. Large, thick 8vo, each volume in the uniform publisher's original green cloth, ruled in black on covers and spine, pictorial vignettes on the upper covers, spines lettered in gilt. viii, 582; viii, 477,2 ads; viii, 586 pp. A rare complete set of this cornerstone work. The volumes in varied condition as this work was published and sold over time. Volumes II and III are very handsome, fine copies with old unobtrusive Gloucestershire Hartland library numbers on the lower quadrant of the spines, internal labels at the pastedowns and free flies, but otherwise, are exceptionally bright and clean copies of these scarce volumes. Volume I is a near very good copy with the cloth still bright but with some light rubbing along the edges and extremities caused by use or by shelving, the hinges reinforced neatly with binders' tape, the text a little shaken but still quite clean and fresh, this volume without the folding map. AN IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION SET COMPLETE. Junker remained continuously in Equatorial Africa from 1875 to 1886, leading extensive expeditions from bases in Khartoum and Lado. He was a leisurely traveler and careful observer. His main objective was to study the people with whom he came into contact, and to collect animal and plant specimens. His explorations are extensively recorded in this work, first published in Germany in 1889. Junker charted the course of the Congo and its tributaries during his decade in Central Africa. His investigations of the Nile-Congo watershed successfully combated the then popular hydrographical theories and established the identity of the Welle and Ubangi. Born of German parents in Moscow, he was influenced in his desire to explore Africa by Schweinfurth who drew his attention to the lands south of the Libyan desert, "a region at that time ... still shrouded in the veil of an awe-inspiring mystery". His fascination with the region led him to make three expeditions over a period of eleven years and he is recognised as one of the great African explorers. Junker received the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1887.

        The principles of psychology

      New York: Henry Holt, 1890. James, William (1843-1910). The principles of psychology. 2 vols. [2], xii, 689; [2], vi, 704, 8 (adverts.)pp. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1890. 218 x 142 mm. Original olive cloth, gilt-lettered spines, light wear, a few tiny splits in spinal extremities. Light toning, minor offsetting on Vol. I title, but a very good set. First Edition, later impression. James's textbook of psychology represents one of the first attempts to treat psychology as a natural science in which the mind is conceived of as being subject to both Darwininan evolutionary principles and to acts of will. "The book presents, in masterly language, a wealth of naturalistic observation about human behaviour and conscious experience . . . It makes clear that psychology concerns, and is of concern to, the lives of individual people. It is exploratory, not consistently scientific in spirit, and arrives at no coherent theory of psychology. However, it widens horizons and raises issues that have, in the twentieth century, been approached scientifically. It raises many issues that still challenge scientific enquiry" (Oxford Companion to the Mind, p. 396). The Principles was printed from stereotype plates so that only one edition exists, with numerous printings all made from the original set of plates. The first impression can be distinguished by the reading "the seat of intellectual power" in Vol. I, p. 10, lines 9-10, and by the reading "object of sensation" in Vol. II, p. 101, line 20.

        The Principles of Psychology

      A foundational work of modern psychology and thought in its first printing of only 1000 copies. Two volumes - covers rubbed, spine ends bumped, top edges a bit dusty, miscellaneous pencil notations in the text. Withal, a very sound and internally clean set which is probably Near Fine but I'll conservatively call it Very Good. Both volumes with a contemporary owner signature dated one month(October, 1890) after publication, and later bookplates of Harvard psychologist Henry Wechsler. "Twelve years in the writing, The Principles was, and in many ways still is, a document unique in the history of human thought. Its author was not only completely conversant with the psychological literature in English, but with that in French, German, and Italian; and, as a result, The Principles presented the discipline for the first time as a truly international endeavor. James was also an artist, with the artist's eye for shading and detail, and one of the English language's truly great prose stylists. In The Principles these characteristics combined to yield some of the richest descriptions of human experience, human behavior, and human nature ever to appear in a work of non-fiction...Of all James's contributions, however, there are three for which he has been especially famous in the history of psychology: his analysis of the stream of thought, his characterization of the self, and his theory of emotion."(Wozniak)

        IN DARKEST AFRICA, or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria

      London and New York: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington for Charles Scribner's Sons, 1890. 2 volumes. Edition de Luxe. One of a limited edition of 250 numbered copies signed by Stanley on the reverse of the half-title. With 6 etchings and 150 woodcut illustrations and 3 folding maps. Each of the etchings are signed in pencil by the artist. Large 4to, contemporary three-quarter brown morocco and with vellum covered sides, gilt lettered on the spines, gilt lettered and with gilt flag vignette on the upper covers, t.e.g. and all edges untrimmed. xv, 529; xi, 472 pp. Index in each volume. A lovely example of this rare set, the bindings unusually fresh with the morocco and vellum in an especially good state of preservation, extremely fresh and clean internally. Only a light bit of aging to the vellum, quite unusual in this condition. VERY SCARCE LIMITED EDITION OF ONE OF THE PRINCIPLE WRITINGS OF ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPLORERS OF THE DARK CONTINENT. "By 1885 Stanley had become deeply interested in the schemes of Mr. (afterwards Sir) William Mackinnon, chairman of the British India Steam Navigation Company, for establishing a British protectorate in East Equatorial Africa, and it was believed that this object could be furthered at the same time that relief was afforded to Emin Pasha, governor of the the Equatorial Province of Egypt, who had been isolated by the Mahdist rising of 1881-1885...Instead of choosing the direct route Stanley decided to go by way of the Congo, as thereby he would be able to render services to the infant Congo State, then encountering great difficulties with the Zanzibar Arabs established on the Upper Congo" (EB). Stanley and Tippoo Tib, the chief of the Congo Arabs, entered into an agreement for the latter to assume governorship of the Stanley Falls station and supply carriers for the Emin relief expedition, and then travelled up the Congo to Bangala together. They parted ways at Stanley Falls and Stanley started his trip toward Albert Nyanza, leaving a rear-guard at Yambuya on the lower Aruwimi under the command of Major E.M. Barttelot. Stanley's journey to Albert Nyanza became a hazardous 160-day march through "nothing but miles and miles, endless miles of forest" that claimed the lives of over half of Stanley's men from starvation, disease, and hostility of the natives. Finally upon the arrival at Albert Nyanza, Stanley achieved communication with Emin but was troubled by the non-arrival of his rear-guard. He retraced his steps back to Yambuya to find that Tippoo Tib had broken faith, Barttelot had been murdered, and the camp was in disarray and only one European was left. Stanley again set out for Albert Nyanza, where Stanley, Emin Pasha, and the survivors of the rear-guard began the return journey to Zanzibar by way of Uganda, a trip during which he discovered the Mountains of the Moon (Ruwenzori), traced the course of the Semliki River, discovered Albert Edward Nyanza and the great southwestern gulf of Victorian Nyanza. Of Stanley's original 646 men, only 246 survived. This account of his adventures was wildly popular and published in six languages. This particular edition is extremely scarce in such excellent condition.

        A Musical Box Photograph Album

      n.d. - Late 19th or early 20th century Olympia photgraphic album with music box. Publisher's quarto embossed brown cushioned leather boards clasped with a brass clasp at fore-edge, the opening of which is intended to trigger the music box, later respine, minor edgewear and a little scuffing here and there, essentially very good indeed, strong and bright. Gilt and green patterned endpapers. Internally clean and bright. With ten heavy card die cut chromolithographed album pages accepting between 1 and 4 photographs (no photos are present), each page is heavily decorated with a full colour depiction of a different sporting endeavour or other. Cricket, archery, baseball, curling, lacrosse and lawn tennis are all present, with the occasional foray into fox hunting and snowshoe racing. Bright and colourful, with some interesting insights into accepted uniforms for turn of the century sporting events. The music box is fully operational and charmingly melodic with the minor details that a single link in the gear release linkage has been replaced by a small piece of wire and that the linking trigger bar is no longer attached to the clasp which means you have to give it a slight tug to play the jaunty tune.which will be instantly recogniseable to anyone who didn't grow up on Joy Division and The Sisters of Mercy but is a bit of a mystery to me. The mechanism is protected by a hinged glass door and the winding key is present and secured to the side of the movement (which I think is a clockwork 1 tune 55 note model). The keyhole is in the centre of the rear board. That rather jumbled foray into mechanical engineering was intended to suggest that everything is present and correct and the music box component plays very nicely. Altogether a charming object, Olympia apparently produced several variations on this album, with and without the music box from the 1890's onwards.they were produced in Germany, a detail that has been carefully scratched out on the title page presumably from someone who had some reason to be resentful towards Germany in the early to mid 20th century, which admittedly doesn't narrow it down at all. A fascinating item, and the kind of thing we don't normally trip over. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hustak och kyrktorn i Genua.

      Akvarell. Signerad och daterad: "W. v. Gegerfelt / Genua 1890". 31,5 × 18 cm. Vacker akvarell med välbevarade färger. Proveniens: Beijers klassiska vårauktion, 25-27 april 1990 (katalog 40), nr 374 (utrop 20,000 kr.) Landskapsmålaren Wilhelm von Gegerfelt var mycket berest och gjorde studieresor till Tyskland, Frankrike, Holland och Italien. Han uppehöll sig flera år i Düsseldorf (1867-72) och hade därefter sin bas i Paris fram till 1885. Gegerfelt representerar jämte Alfred Wahlberg övergångsskedet mellan Karl XV-tidens akademiska och romantiska landskapsmåleri och den frambrytande friluftsrealismen hos opponentrörelsen på 1880-talet. Han hörde själv till friluftsmålarnas skara och arbetade sedan han återvänt till Sverige i en liten hästdragen ateljé på medar om vintrarna för att komma naturen riktigt in på livet. Han skickade även ritningarna till sin elev Prins Eugen, så att han kunde beställa en liknande åt sig själv. Gegerfelts italienska motiv hör till hans färgmässigt friskaste och är ofta från Venedig, som han besökte första gången 1880 med Carl Skånberg och Georg Pauli.
