HOKUSAI, Katsushika..
Japan. Single sheet print, Aizuri [blue] print, Oban size, ca 37.7 25 cm., surface dusty, back of corners scotch-taped, old center fold, clear, good color,superb registry, in-block signature.

This print is cited in C. Terry: HOKUSAI'S 36 VIEWS OF MT. FUJI, and illustrated as print #14, with text on p.66-67. We quote from that text: "Yoshida was a stopover town on the famous Eastern Coast Route [Tokaido], which led from Edo to Kyoto. It was located in what is now the city of Toyohashi. This print is linked by its subject and its color scheme to the scene at Koishikawa. In particular, these are the only two pictures in this series in which Hokusai made any attempt to portray beautiful women, a favorite subject with earlier Ukiyoe artists. * The attempt, one will note, was fairly routine, for Hokusai did not share Utamaro's and Kiyonaga's ability to make the great beauties of the day seem alive and enticing. As a rule, he put too much emphasis on their clothing and the incidentals that surrounded them. Furthermore, a comparison of these two prints with the similar one shown [as TEMPLE OF THE FIVE HUNDRED ARHATS-GOHYAKU RAKAN-JI] reveals that Hokusai was far more interested in the appearance and the antics of the ordinary mob..." * A lovely view of Mt. Fuji from the inside of a Tea House. A very emaciated old man is about to beat a lobster & crush it for cooking, while two travelers look on. Three beautiful women look at Mt. Fuji in the distance while accepting tea, and resting as are others. At the far left is a palanquin and its bearer, also taking a break, while smoking a long pipe as he mops the sweat from his head. This work is typical of Hokusai's great ability to capture the moment and its action. The work is done mostly in hues of blue ergo the name "Aizuri-ban" or "indigo print." The sparse use of red or any other bright color makes this work pleasing to the eye. * The tea house is in a pale yellow with very little other color. Mt. Fuji in the distance is shown with a lot of snow on it, with a touch of dark blue below. The sky and clouds accent the outline of the beloved and sacred mountain. The key-block was printed in dark blue, rather than the traditional black. * A very famous print by an equally famous artist. * Color scans can by sent by email.

BOVET, Giovanni. [Aka:JOACHIM BOUVET].
Padova MDCCX [1710], Giufeppe Corona. Original vellum, very clean, solid, 97p., Italian text,10.5 x 17 cm., Ad inftanza di Alvife Pavino. FIRST ITALIAN EDITION

AN EARLY PRIMARY JESUIT MISSIONARY ACCOUNT OF CHINA 1710 Father Joachim Bouvet [1656-1730], was a French Jesuit and missionary to China. ** Extracted from the Catholic encyclopedia: * "[Fr. J. Bouvet was a] "Jesuit missionary, born at Le Mans, France, died at Peking, China, 28 June, 1732. * He was one of the first Jesuits selected by Louis XIV for the mission in China. Before setting out for their destination, he and his associates were admitted to the Academie des Sciences and were commissioned by that learned body to carry on astronomical observations, to determine the geographical positions of the various places they were to visit, and to collect various scientific data. The little band, after being provided by order of the King with all necessary scientific instruments, sailed from Brest, 3 March 1685, with Father Fontaney as Superior. After spending some time in Siam, they finally arrived in Peking, 7 February, 1688. They were favorably received by the Emperor the famous Khang-hi, who retained Father Bouvet, together with Father Gerbillion, near his person and made them his instructors in mathematics. While engaged in this work, the two Fathers wrote several mathematical treatises in the Tartar language which the Emperor caused to be translated into Chinese, adding the prefaces himself. So far did they win his esteem and confidence that he gave a site within the palace enclosure for a church and residence which were finally completed in 1702. * In 1679 he [Emperor] sent Father Bouvet back to France to obtain new missionaries and made him the bearer of a gift of forty-nine volumes in Chinese for the king. These were deposited in the Royal Library, and Louis XIV, in turn, commissioned Father Bouvet to present to the Emperor a magnificently bound collection of engravings. * In 1699 Father Bouvet arrived a second time in China, accompanied by ten missionaries, among them men of great ability, such as Fathers de Premare, Regis, and Parrenin. Khang-hi honored him further with the title of interpreter to his son, the heir-apparent. In 1700, with four of his fellow missionaries, he presented a memorial to the Emperor, asking for a decision as to the meaning attached to the various ceremonies of the Chinese in honor of Confucius and their ancestors. The Emperor, who had taken a keen interest in the controversy regarding the ceremonies, replied that they were simply civil usages, having no religious significance whatsoever. * The memorial, together with the Emperors reply, was published in the "Gazette de Pekin" but failed to allay the excitement then raging in Europe over the question. From 1708 to 1715 Father Bouvet was engaged in a survey of the empire and the preparation of maps of the various provinces. He was a man of great energy and ability, and of simple, unselfish piety. For nearly fifty years he shared all the labors of the missionaries and was engaged from time to time in various scientific works. During this long period, chiefly on account of his services to the Emperor and the favor he enjoyed with him, he did much to advance the interest of Christianity and to facilitate the entrance and the labors of his fellow-missionaries. * His Chinese name was Petsin. * Besides his works on mathematics, Father Bouvet was the author of "Etat present de la Chine, en figures gravees par P. Giffart sur les dessins apportes au roi par le P. J. Bouvet" (Paris, 1697); "Portrait histoique de l'empereur de la Chine" (Paris, 1697). The library at Le Mans contains a collection of his manuscripts including a Chinese dictionary." ** End of citation from Catholic Encyclopedia. * CONDITION: The original vellum binding is in lovely condition, with penned author's name and title with a decoration on the spine. The binding is solid and has little wear anywhere and must be described as "excellent plus." The pages are clean, and white with little foxing evident, 5 leafs [10 sides] are discolored and darkened but they are not brittle or other- wise damaged, a clear and solid copy of a very RARE BOOK. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: John Lust: WESTERN BOOKS ON CHINA PUBLISHED UP TO 1850, -no. 465 refers to the French edition of 1699. * H.

[Dutch Military Uniforms] Huzaren (caption title). [ORIGINAL CHROMOLITHOGRAPH PRINT]. - [Brunings, Peter Frederik].
[Brunings, Peter Frederik].
's-Gravenhage, Ewings, ca. 1880.
Original single-sheet chromolithograph of exceptionally fine quality. Overall size 24 x 16.5 cm, printed on heavy paper. Bearing at foot the legend "Huzaren". Fine. - - Beautiful and exquisitely produced chromolithographic plate from a highly acclaimed work. It depicts two officers of the Third Hussars Regiment. The first is a mounted Standard Bearer, the second is a Sergeant. The scenery is that of an inner yard of a caserne. A lovely plate with rich, dense colours and excellent gloss, beautifully heightened in gold. An authoritative manual on chromolithography in 1885 (Colour and Colour Printing, by W. D. Richmond) asserts the need for at least nine separate stones to achieve such richness, but in fact the number of stones used was often more than twenty. The plate is in its original state; one margin is yet untrimmed, with the original stab-holes. First and only edition of Brunings' hallmark series of Dutch military uniforms of the 2nd half of the 19th century. (Lipperheide 2260; Colas 464).
