They show costumes, genre scenes and trades, which Geissler drew during his extended stay in St. Petersburg from 1790 to 1798.

Item Description: Pencil and watercolour (36.5 x 54.3cm) with touches of white heightening and gum arabic. Numbered '4.49'. Superb original watercolour with fine contemporary provenance for John Gould's Birds of Great Britain. Henry Constantine Richter (1821–1902), one of the most notable natural history illustrators of the nineteenth century, produced numerous lithographs of birds and mammals, mainly under the employment of John Gould. Gould stated in his book Birds of Great Britain, from which this plate is taken, that 'Whimbrels usually arrive in England in the early part of May, and disperse themselves along our coasts, particularly those of the eastern counties; they are then on their passage northwards: but a few remain to breed on the moors of Scotland, and perhaps on the northern parts of England'. In the image the male is depicted in the foreground with a female behind. Frederick DuCane Godman (1834 – 1919) was an English lepidopterist, entomologist and ornithologist. He was one of the twenty founding members of the British Ornithologists' Union. Along with Osbert Salvin, he is remembered for studying the fauna and flora of Central America. Gould.

Item Description: Pencil and watercolour (36.5 x 54.3cm) heightened with white and gum arabic. Numbered '4.37'. Superb original watercolour with fine contemporary provenance for John Gould's Birds of Great Britain. Henry Constantine Richter (1821–1902) was a zoological illustrator who produced numerous lithographs of birds and mammals, mainly under the employment of John Gould, an English ornithologist. Gould employs two illustrations of plovers in his book Birds of Great Britain, from which this plate is taken, to show that 'A greater transformation in the garb of birds does not exist than occurs in the spring and autumnal plumage of this bird. It is in the spring that the Grey (Black-bellied) Plover with its fine black breast flies over the eastern parts of England en route for countries further north.' An adult bird is depicted in winter plumage with a young bird born earlier in the year. Frederick DuCane Godman ( 1834 – 1919) was an English lepidopterist, entomologist and ornithologist. He was one of the twenty founding members of the British Ornithologists' Union. Along with Osbert Salvin, he is remembered for studying the fauna and flora of Central America. Gould.

Item Description: second part of XIX c. Pencil and watercolour (35.3 x 53.0cm) with touches of white heightening and gum arabic. Numbered '4.58'. Superb original watercolour with fine contemporary provenance for John Gould's Birds of Great Britain. Henry Constantine Richter (1821–1902) was a zoological illustrator who produced numerous lithographs of birds and mammals, mainly under the employment of John Gould, an English ornithologist. Of the sandpiper, Gould observed in his book Birds of Great Britain, from which this plate is taken: 'How much pleasure have they lost who have not seen this nimble and elegant species tripping over the pebbly bottoms of our rivulets or the greensward fringing the river-banks, or witnessed how it imparts life to the scene in the neighbourhood of the glassy Highland loch!'. He regarded the arrival of the sandpiper in mid April with special interest, for it 'gives an additional zest to the anticipation of a forthcoming summer'. In this image the male and female of the species are depicted with a nest of young and an egg. Frederick DuCane Godman ( 1834 – 1919) was an English lepidopterist, entomologist and ornithologist. He was one of the twenty founding members of the British Ornithologists' Union. Along with Osbert Salvin, he is remembered for studying the fauna and flora of Central America. Gould.

Item Description: The Author 1840-, London, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph, 510 x 350 mm, very good, framed with text verso. A striking image of the Long-billed White Cockatoo, Licmetis Nasicus: this is an original hand coloured lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia. John Gould's great contribution to ornithology was his lavish series of colourplate folios and his serious scientific interest in Australian birds. The Literature of Australian Birds by Whittell lists 102 books and scientific papers by Gould on the subject. 'What of Gould's own role and his historical place in relation to the ornithology of Australia? Gould's enterprise flourished in the era of extensive collecting of birds and the description of species. There is no doubt that he had a brilliant natural talent for the recognition of new species characters in birds and therefore the science of avian systematics (taxonomy) involved with describing and naming bird species. This he linked with both expertise in taxidermy and an ability to capture the field character of birds in rough sketches? Although many of Gould's systematic placings have not been preserved by modern research, a remarkable number of his names have survived and some of the forms he found puzzling remain so today. Nothing can detract from this gargantuan achievement that ranks highly in the world's ornithology' (McEvey). Birds of Australia is a great tribute to Australia and was one of Gould's most successful projects. 'Only 250 copies have been printed, and the drawings have been effaced from stones; of these, 180 were subscribed for, the remaining seventy the author proposes to issue upon the original terms, with the exception, that five or more parts shall be delivered in the course of each year instead of four; the delivery to commence on the 1st of January 1849' (Prospectus).

A companion volume to Werner Graff's "Es Kommt der Neue Fotograf," an early and highly influential study of experimental film published to coincide with the 1929 Film und Foto exhibition in Stuttgart. Illustrated with numerous photographs, film stills, and film strips, with photographic reproductions by many of the important avant-garde artists of the era, including Man Ray, Duchamp, Leger, and Richter himself. A fascinating book from several perspectives. Not only one of the first books to attempt to characterize early avant-garde filmmaking, but a lushly produced volume, with hundreds of stills from various early experimental films, speaking not only to concept but also to technique and method. The stills selected by Richter include not only strips and stills of the films discussed, but also rare images of candid on-set images of the filmmakers at work.Fine in an Near Fine, exceptionally sharp example of the scarce dust jacket, with only a bit of horizontal creasing on the jacket spine panel to note.

In German. 164 pages loose in old folder. Highly technical writings, mathematical equations and analysis, graphs, charts etc. Signed Hilly Richter 24 January, 1942. Entitled "Auftriebs verteilung Richtung flugeltiefe auf grund der theorie der dunnen Profile," relating to theories of lift distribution and flight direction. The folder labeled "Rakete Theorie". Clearly, the date of the manuscript would put in squarely in the period of World War II and the great German advances in aeronautics. Civilian and military efforts in the field of rocketry in all other nations combined paled in comparison with the strides made in Germany, where the first A-4 was tested with complete success on October 3, 1942. The very first A-4 rocket reached an altitude of 50 miles and flew a distance of 120 miles. The A-4, later renamed V-2, would go on to lay the cornerstone of modern rocketry. Fascinating World War II relic and collectible of significance. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Signed by Author. German Language. Bookseller Inventory # 000025B

Zum ersten Mal in der Editionsgeschichte wurden auch die amtlichen Schriften in breiter Auswahl in eine Ausgabe Sämtlicher Werke aufgenommen. Die bedeutenden Briefwechsel mit Schiller und dem Komponisten und Berliner Musikprofessor Carl Friedrich Zelter (beiden hat Goethe selbst Werkcharakter beigemessen) sind ebenso enthalten wie die berühmten Gespräche mit Eckermann. Darüber hinaus wird eine Vielzahl weiterer Briefe und Gespräche in den Bandeinführungen und Kommentaren herangezogen. Goethes Werke erscheinen in dieser Ausgabe, im Unterschied zu bisherigen Goethe-Editionen, nach den jeweiligen Epochen seines Lebens und Schaffens geordnet. Die Ausgabe vereint jeweils in einem Band, was nach entstehungsgeschichtlichen Bedingungen, nach thematischen und strukturellen Gemeinsamkeiten, aber auch hinsichtlich der zeitgenössischen Rezeption zusammengehört. So wird im Rahmen eines Bandes die "wechselseitige Erhellung" unterschiedlicher Werkschichten sichtbar, die auch Goethe selbst wichtig war: von Dichtung und Naturwissenschaft, literarischer Produktion und theoretischer Reflexion, von Akten des Schreibens und autobiographischer Selbstdeutung. Für den Kommentar ergeben sich daraus neue Möglichkeiten, solche Zusammenhänge sichtbar zu machen. Neue Wege geht die Ausgabe auch mit dem dargebotenen Text: Sie vertraut nicht mehr der Ausgabe letzter Hand, sondern bemüht sich, auf bessere frühere Drucke oder die Handschriften zurückzugehen. Auch vom Konzept der Ausgabe her lag diese Entscheidung nahe. In Textgestalt, Anordnung und Kommentar entsteht so ein farbiges und historisch differenziertes Goethe-Bild, das sich der neuen Begegnung und aktuellen Aneignung anbietet. Eine Ausgabe, die - von besten Sachkennern betreut - sowohl den neuesten wissenschaftlichen Standard repräsentiert als auch leserfreundlich angelegt ist.[Die Bände liegen angenehm in der Hand und sind köstlich anzusehen!] 16000 gr.

Item Description: Francis C. Richter, Philadelphia, 1914. Hardcover. First edition. 306pp., illustrated from photographs. The front fly lacking, with some erosion to the cloth at the spine ends, and a little foxing. A well-worn but sound, good copy of this classic baseball book with a nice association, Inscribed by Richter to his son: "To my dear son Francis C. Jr. with the best wishes of his father. Francis C. Richter. Philadelphia Pa. March 14, 1914." As a writer, Richter was an influential force in the early development of the game. Beginning with the *Philadelphia Day* in 1872, then the *Sunday World* and *Public Ledger*, he was the first to set up a separate sports department for any newspaper. Richter was instrumental in the formation of the original American Association in 1882 and helped to place the Philadelphia Athletics in it. The next year he helped to organize the Phillies in the National League and started *Sporting Life*, a weekly newspaper, which became a great force in baseball. In 1907 he was offered the presidency of the National League but turned it down. He edited the *Reach Guide* from its inception in 1901 to the 1926 volume, which he completed days before his death. A splendid association copy. #314522. Bookseller Inventory # 314522

Item Description: Hullmandel & Walton -48, 1840. Original hand-coloured lithograph. Dimensions: 500 by 330mm (20 by 13 inches). From the "Birds of Australia". JOHN GOULD 1804 - 1881 John Gould is widely considered the grearest and most ambitious of all Victorian ornithologists, combining both artistic skill and beauty and anatomical accuracy. Following in the great tradition of Natural History illustrators, such as Barraband and Audubon, Gould enlisted the services of some of the most notable ornithological artists, including Edward Lea, Joseph Wolf and his own wife Elizabeth to compile the most outstanding and comprehensive bodies of work in this field. Comprising of eighteen major works he illustrated the birds of the world, from Asia, New Guinea, Europe, and Great Britain to the Families of Toucans, Trogons and Hummingbirds. Perhaps the most important and valuable of his works is the "Birds of Australia", published in London 1840 - 48, with a supplement issued 1851 - 69, from which this work is taken. A contemporary viewer said of this work "Great as is the excellence of Mr Gould's former publications, there can be no doubt that the present work exceeds them all, both in an artistic and scientific point of view. Whether the dignified repose of the Eagle, the pert Malurus, the restless Parrakeet, or the lean and anxoius Wader, he is equally successful in his efforts". Indeed still today the work is noted as his most accomplished, inparticular the plates depicting parrots and cockatoos have propelled this work into becoming the most valuable of Gould's publictions. Aside from its value it is the most complete and comprehensive ornithological work on Australia ever completed, an incredible feat considering the continent had only been discovered seventy years previously. It was a direct result of the labours of Gould and his assistants, that well over three hundred new species were added to the existing list of birds know to inhabit Australia.
