Alfred C B Fletcher KEEP MOVING 1932 First Edition Signed By Illustrator Gregory Orloff Antique Round-The-World Voyage Plates Decorative Binding

by National Book Auctions

May 31, 2015, 12:00 PM GMT

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: Keep MovingAuthor: Alfred C. B. FletcherPublisher: Laidlaw BrothersCity: ChicagoYear: 1932Printing Information: Signed EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xviii/281 pagesWidth: 6.5" Height: 9.25"Book Details: "In "From Job to Job around the World" I gave an account of a tramp trip I made in my early twenties. The present volume is a brief record of some of my later travels made at a time when economy was less of a necessity and when a reasonable amount of comfort was obtainable. Happily, however, I have thus far evaded, with few exceptions, the misfortune of travelling in common luxury; and my various peregrinations, although often on the more or less beaten paths, have been devoid to a pleasing degree of the uniform features of the average conventional tourist." (Author's foreword)Chapters on such topics as "A German Christmas in France," "The Land of the Mikado," "Mingling with the Chinese," "Uncontaminated Sumatra" and "Economy in Europe."Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed first edition. The inscription on a blank preliminary page reads "In remembrance of long / friendship to Mary and Leroy / Goble / from Gregory Orloff.""Gregory Orloff (1890-1981) was born in Kiev and began his early art training with painter Vyacheslav Korenev at the Kiev Academy of Art. He continued his studies in the United States, first at the National Academy of Design in New York with Charles Curran and Ivan Olinsky, and subsequently with Karl Buehr at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he absorbed his teachers’ preferences for figurative subjects, leisure themes, and the coloristic and decorative effects of Impressionism. Recalling his academic training, Orloff later stated that he had “to unlearn and undo what I had acquired.Orloff made his mark in Chicago in the mid-1920s, exhibiting portraits and scenes of daily life with the Chicago Society of Artists, of which he was a member; the progressive Chicago No-Jury Society of Artists; and at the venerable annuals of the Art Institute of Chicago (1925–35); and other venues. Orloff’s early reputation rested largely upon his work in portraiture, which critics praised for showing a keen perception of subjects. He soon found the genre stultifying, however, and set his sights on more complex compositions in a variety of media.” (http://www.chicagomodern.org/artists/gregory_orloff/)This antique volume is bound in quarter black cloth. The spine and front cover have gold labels with black lettering. The front and rear cover have black paper-covered boards with multi-color decorative patterns. The book shows light shelfwear. The binding is firm. The volume has gold endpapers, with textured flyleaves. The pages are clean and without markings. This work is handsomely illustrated with plates and decorations by Gregory Orloff. A photo portrait of the author with a captioned tissue guard appears opposite the foreword.For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States. For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states. Within those parameters, the shipping cost for this lot will be: $4.50

Patrick Caulfield, Group of 6 Screenprints, 1968-1978

by Auctionata US

June 6, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: Group of 6 color screenprints on wove paperUK, 1968-1978Patrick Caulfield (1936-2005) – British printmaker and painterCrucifix, Lamp and Pines, Rose Bottle, Signature Pots, SausageEach signed and titled in pencil Each numbered in pencil lower left, from various edition sizesPublished by L. Waddington Prints, London Cristea 8, 42, 44, 45, 53Various dimensions and conditionsEstimate $1,000-$1,500Interested in the everyday, British artist Patrick Caulfield is best known for his hard-edged, color-blocked screenprints. Depicting innocuous interior scenes and domestic objects such as lamps and bottles, Caulfield’s print manage to capture a sense of exotic playfulness from the ordinary. By using unnatural colors and sharp black lines, Caulfield evokes imagery from advertising as a form of critique typified by Pop Artists. “Crucifix” (1968) is numbered as an artist’s proof and measures 27 7/8 x 36 7/8 inches. Three creases left margin with scuffing, scattered mild foxing verso. “Lamp and Pines” (1975) is numbered IX/XIII and measures 30 3/8 x 40 3/8 inches. Creases in all four corners, scuffing, scattered mild foxing verso. “Lamp and Pines” (1975) is numbered XI/XIII and measures 30 3/8 x 40 3/8 inches. Four tears, dings, foxing on the right and scuffing. “Rose Bottle” (1975) is numbered XII/XIII and measures 30 ½ x 40 ½ inches. Three tears, scuffing, scattered mild foxing verso. “Three Signature Pots” (1975) is numbered XI/XIII and measures 30 ½ x 40 ½ inches. 3 tears, dings, scattered mild foxing verso. “Sausage” (1978) is numbered 10/14 AP and measures 30 ½ x 40 ½ inches. Crease bottom margin, dings Patrick Caulfield (British, 1936-2005)Born in London, renowned printmaker and painter Patrick Caulfield studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London. His early work is typified by flat, color-blocked images of everyday objects, while in his mature years he displayed a variety of artistic styles. Caulfield’s work was included in the seminal 1964 exhibition, “New Generation” at London’s Whitechapel Gallery. Major retrospectives of his work were held at the Serpentine Gallery, the Hayward Gallery, and the Tate Gallery in London over the course of his life. Caulfield was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1987, for his show The Artist’s Eye at the National Gallery, in which he curated an exhibition of his favorite paintings.

(32.4 x 24.8 cm.)Overall dimensions: 13 ¾ x 10 ¼ in. (34.9 x 26 cm.)Very good condition Estimate $1,200-$1,800Known for depicting simple objects against stark backgrounds, Donald Sultan’s works can be seen as abstracted still lifes. Often using the same motifs, this exquisite suite of lips is no exception. Both seductive and sinister, each print features lips pressed against a surface with two on white backgrounds and the others on black. Executed in 1989, this set of four aquatints on BFK Rives with original slipcase are each signed, titled, dated and numbered thirty-three from an edition of one hundred. Printed by Crommelynck and published by Art Multi, Paris, this portfolio was published on the occasion of the book “Donald Sultan – Appoggiatures” by Philippe Sergeant. With full margins and deckled edges, the sheets are loose as issued. The sheets measure 12 ¾ x 9 ¾ inches. Each in overall good condition with no evidence of tears, toning or repairs. Donald Sultan (American, b. 1951)Growing up in the Appalachian Mountains, painter, printmaker, and sculptor Donald Sultan earned his BFA from the University of North Carolina in 1973 and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1975. He was awarded the Creative Artist Public Service grant in 1979 after moving to New York four years earlier and gained prominence as a member of the New Image movement in the late 1970’s. His first solo exhibition was with the Artists Space in 1977 in New York, and his work soon gained international critical acclaim with exhibitions worldwide. Using both abstract and representational imagery, Sultan became best known for his large-scale still life and landscape paintings made of industrial materials in a minimalist style. His works are held in the collections of the Tate Gallery, National Gallery of Australia, and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among many others. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Paca, William

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: Paca, William. (1740-1799) Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland. Paca was elected to the First Continental Congress in 1774 and served until 1778, when he was appointed Chief Justice of Maryland. In mid-May of 1776, the people of Maryland passed a resolution prohibiting their delegates from voting for independence; however, the restrictions were withdrawn in June and Paca and the other delegates from Maryland voted for the Declaration of Independence. Paca is rare.Autograph letter signed ("Wm Paca"), 2 pages (single sheet), 9 1/4 x 7 in., no place, April 20, 1784. To General Smallwood, Mattawoman (Maryland), regarding attending the first meeting of the Society of the Cincinnati and other news. Moderate soiling and scuffing; some fading to ink, not affecting legibility. Paca writes, in part: "I am just now obliged with your's notifying the first Monday in May for the Meeting of the Society of the Cincinnati and I hope I shall have the pleasure of accompanying you to Philadelphia on that Business....You have heard I presume of the affair of Sir Robt Eden's signing clandestinely a number of Patents affixing the Seale to some of those....The offense is a very serious one & for which he will certainly be prosecuted.... I was rejoiced to read your letter as it assures me that you are not dead; for so you have been reported...." Sir Robert Eden (1741-1784) was the last Royal Governor of Maryland. William Smallwood (1732-1792) was a Major General in the American Revolutiuon. He joined Washington's Army (July 10, 1776) in New York, as commander of the Maryland Battalion; actively engaged in the battles of Brooklyn Heights and white Plains, after which Congress appointed him Brigadier General for his gallantry. Smallwood won new laurels for action at Camden, receiving the thanks of Congress. In September, 1780, he was appointed Major General, but after the removal of General Horatio Gates, he refused to serve under Baron von Steuben.The Society of the Cincinnati was organized May 10, 1783, before the Treaty of Peace was signed and before the British evacuated New York. The Society was established with a charter stating three purposes: to preserve the rights and liberties for which its founders had fought, to promote the national honor and "dignity of the American Empire," and to reinforce the "cordial affection" among its members by providing aid and assistance to them and their families when in need. The first military beneficial society, The Cincinnati worked to influence Congress for pensions for surviving Revolutionary veterans. Original membership was limited to those officers who had served a minimum period with the regular (Line) American Army or Navy; or with the French forces under Rochambeau or deGrasse; those who had served to the end of the War as a Line Officer, resigned with honor after at least three years of service, and/or had been rendered supernumerary, or honorably discharged after three years of service (today, descendants of original members may also become members). George Washington served as The Cincinnati's President General from its inception until his death in 1799. Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000 Remember When Auctions, July 18, 1998, lot 47; personal papers of William Smallwood.

by National Book Auctions

May 31, 2015, 12:00 PM GMT

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $100 - $250

Description: Title: Egypt: Descriptive, Historical, and PicturesqueAuthor: Georg Ebers - Georg Moritz Ebers, German Egyptologist and novelist, discovered the Egyptian medical papyrus, of ca. 1550 BCE, named for him (see Ebers Papyrus) at Luxor (Thebes) in the winter of 1873–74. Now in the Library of the University of Leipzig, the Ebers Papyrus is among the most important ancient Egyptian medical papyri. It is one of two of the oldest preserved medical documents anywhere—the other being the Edwin Smith Papyrus (ca. 1600 BCE). (Courtesy of Wikipedia)Translor: Clara Bell - Clara Bell, nee Poynter, was an English translator fluent in French, German, Danish, Dutch, Italian, Norwegian, Russian, and Spanish, noted for her translations of works by Henrik Ibsen, Balzac, Georg Ebers, Huysmans, Maupassant, and others. She was educated in France, where she became fluent in French and German; she did not acquire her knowledge of the other languages until after her fortieth birthday. She spent most of her life in London.Bell was born in Westminster to architect Ambrose Poynter and Emma Forster; her brother was Sir Edward Poynter, a director of the National Gallery. She was a distant relation of Edward Burne-Jones and Rudyard Kipling. She was married to banker Robert Courtenay Bell (1816–1896) with whom she had six children, one of whom was Charles Francis Bell, who oversaw the Fine Art Department of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.Under the direction of George Saintsbury, Bell, Ellen Marriage, and Rachel Scott were responsible for translating the vast majority of Balzac's Human Comedy into English, superseding earlier translations that had generally been regarded as stilted. The low pay that translators received at that time required Bell and her colleagues to complete work quickly, but her translations have nonetheless been noted for their close adherence to the source texts, and their high degree of readability.(Courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Cassell & Company, LimitedCity: LondonYear: 1880/1883Binding Style: HardcoverNumber of Volumes: 2 Full Set: YesWidth: 12.5" Height: 15.25"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This antique folio set is bound in blind-stamped brown cloth over beveled boards, with stamped gilt lettering and elaborate pictorial designs offering Egyptian motifs.

16000 Prague 6, Czech Republic

Description: JAN SAFARÍK (1886-1914) CARNIVAL IN PARIS After 1909, France (Paris) This work offered for auction is very special due to the number of this artist's works that have been preserved from his time in Paris and due to his later history. Having arrived to Paris after deserting the army in Bosnia, his star shone brightly on the Parisian art scene, though only briefly. After his successes at the Salon exhibitions in 1910, 1911, 1913 and 1914, he disappeared and nothing is known about his later work or life. Last year, his birth city of Prostějov organized an exhibition commemorating his mysterious disappearance. Oil on canvas, mounted on a mahogany panel. Signed on the left at the bottom: J.Šafařík.

Shipwreck Cannon Ball from HMS Ramillies

by TimeLine Auctions Limited

May 29, 2015, 10:00 AM BST

Brentwood, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £100 - £150

Description: Sunk 1760 AD. A large iron 32lb cannonball from HMS Ramillies (ex HMS Royal Katherine) with custom-made wooden display stand and nameplate. HMS Ramillies was an 84-gun ship of the line, launched in 1664 at Woolwich, London as HMS Royal Katherine, named after Catherine of Braganza. The name was changed in 1706, after a re-fit in Portsmouth to carry 90 guns, in commemoration of John Churchill's victory at the Battle of Ramillies the same year. The ship took part in several naval actions in the Second and Third Anglo-Dutch Wars, the War of the Grand Alliance and the Seven Years War. She was wrecked at Bolt Head, Plymouth, Devon on 15th February 1760, where only twenty sailors and one midshipman survived from the crew of 850, and subsequently broken up. A painting of the ship by Vale entitled 'The Royall Katherine command[e]d by John Earl of Mulgrave in the Second Dutch Warr' is in the collection of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London (acquisition number BHC3606). The cannonball has lost some mass in removal of the superficial marine accretion and now weighs 26lb. 12.6 kg, 23cm including stand, (9"). Recovered by vendor from the wreck site, 1980s.

Condition Report: Fine condition.
