Album with Original Illustrations, many featuring pioneers versus Indians, from the 1860s mostly

by Ezekiah (?)

Quarter Morocco. Paper pastedown on boards. . Good. 8vo. 24 by 19 cm. With 29 full page drawings, all done with pencil, and often color pencils or crayons. In our view, ten read as fully colored drawings, and another twelve have partial coloring (just a detail, or just one color used, or dominated by black pencil), and the remaining seven are entirely done with black pencil. There is a handwritten, in thick blue pencil or crayon, numbering of the leaves, going from 1 up to 39, but skipping some... Read more

Silhouettes Militaires.  De la Révolution et du 1er Empire

Silhouettes Militaires. De la Révolution et du 1er Empire

by Brisquet

NA. Very Good. An magnificent collection of 20 military costume mixed media oil paintings that were once part of a major French collection of militariana. N.d., 1830 to 1860 -- these were nostalgic portraits created during the reigns of Louis Philippe and Louis Napoleon (Napoleon III). Brisquet, the artist, apparently was set-up on the esplanade by les Invalides, certainly a logical place for a creator of military-related bric-a-brac to set up shop, so to speak, and seek to sell his wares. A variety... Read more

Monogram and Crest Album with Watercolors

Monogram and Crest Album with Watercolors

by Errington, Jane (?)

Full Morocco. Very Good. Comparatively late "augmented" monogram album, with monograms and crests worked into winsomely naive watercolor illustrations often. By late, we mean circa 1910 to 1920, based on the depictions of automobiles from that era as well as airplanes, whereas the augmented, more special monogram albums we have come across before are virtually always squarely Victorian era. 8vo. 23 by 18 cm. 47 leaves with visual content. (Also some blank leaves. All illustrations are on rectos.)... Read more

[Faux Book] Fine Folk Art Box with Folk Art Vignettes of a House and Floral Designs

[Faux Book] Fine Folk Art Box with Folk Art Vignettes of a House and Floral Designs

Very Good. Circa 18th century, probably intended as a tobacco box. Dimensions: 16 by 10 by 3.5 cm. The house probably represents a plantation house, abd the plant fronds on each side, tobacco leaves. On the other side is a plant that resembles a typical folk art etched design. The spine has etched bands. The staining of the edges is suggestive of marbling, whether or not this effect was intended. The lid, which fits on very snugly, opens to a shallow well. The top of the open lid is convex, and... Read more
