Artist: Clinton Loveridge
Medium: Oil on Board
Year: c1845
Dimensions: Frame measures 12" by 8.25"

Details/Condition: This original piece features a Hudson River Valley style oil on board by renowned artist Clinton Loveridge.

The trees show the beauty of fall, with various hues of orange and yellow. This small piece is framed in a wide wooden frame.

Clinton Loveridge (1824-1915) documented the New England landscape throughout his career. He was known for his paintings of cattle and sheep, but the White Mountains were also a common subject matter, as were the farmlands of his birthplace, Troy, New York. Active in Albany during the late 1850s, Loveridge settled in Brooklyn in 1867, joining an active arts community in the burgeoning area. He was one of many artists who gathered at Annesley and Vint's, an artist supply store and only commercial gallery in the city at that time. (courtesy of Vose Galleries, Defining A Nation: Painting of Nineteenth-Century America)

Title: Camoe Главное (The Chief Thing)
Author: Nikolai Evreinov

Printing Year: 1921

Condition/Details: Bound in the original paper wrappers, this antique volume is one of Evreinov's later published plays, written in Russian. The volume has been stored in a library-issued paper case.

Nikolai Nikolayevich Evreinov (Russian: Николай Николаевич Евреинов; February 13, 1879 - September 7, 1953) was a Russian director, dramatist and theatre practitioner associated with Russian Symbolism. Evreinov argued that the role of theatre was to ape and mimic nature. In his estimation, theatre is everything around us. He pointed out that nature is full of theatrical conventions: desert flowers mimicking the stones; mouse feigning death in order to escape a cat's claws; complicated dances of birds, etc. He viewed theatre as a universal symbol of existence. The director sought to reinvigorate the theatre (and through it life itself) through the rediscovery of the origin of theatre in play. He was influenced by the philosophies of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and Bergson, and, like Meyerhold, the aesthetics of symbolism and the commedia dell'arte (particularly in its use of mask and spontaneity). His plays include the monodramas The Presentation of Love (1910) and In the Stage-Wings of the Soul (1911), the tragi-farce A Merry Death (1908, based on Alexander Blok's The Puppet Show), and The Chief Thing (1921); the last two of which were heavily indebted to the commedia. Based on Maxim Gorky's The Lower Depths (1902), The Chief Thing provided Evreinov's one international success, was done on stage and screen in France as La Comedie du Bonheur and was staged on Broadway in 1926 by Theater Guild with Harold Clurman and Edward G. Robinson. According to Spencer Golub, The Chief Thing play provides a "compendium of Evreinovian aesthetics and devices" and features Harlequin "as death-defier and life-transformer". (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: The History of the Life of Tamerlane the Great
Translated by: L. Vane, Esq.
Printing Year: 1753

Condition/Details: Rebound in red boards, this antique volume is a scarce biographical work of Tamerlane the Great, a 14th century conqueror, with "an exact and authentic account of his birth and family, his wars with the Muscovites, the King of China, the famous Bajazet Emperor of the Turks, and The Soldan of Egypt, his conquest of Persia, and the other remarkable actions of his life. Wrote at his own command, by his favorite Alhacen, a learned Arabian." This early work was translated into English by L. Vane, Esq.

Timur (8 April 1336 – 18 February 1405), normally known as Tamerlane in English, was a 14th-century conqueror of much of western and central Asia, founder of the Timurid Empire and Timurid dynasty (1370–1405) in Central Asia, and great grandfather of Babur, the founder of the Mughal Dynasty, which survived until 1857 as the Mughal Empire of India. Born into the Mongol Barlas tribe who ruled in Central Asia, Timur was in his lifetime a controversial figure, and remains so today. He sought to restore the Mongol Empire, yet his heaviest blow was against the Islamized Tatar Golden Horde. He was more at home in an urban environment than on the steppe. He styled himself a ghazi yet some Muslim states, e.g. the Ottoman Empire, were severely affected by his wars. A great patron of the arts, his campaigns also caused vast destruction. Timur told the qadis of Aleppo, during the sack of that newly-conquered city, "I am not a man of blood; and God is my witness that in all my wars I have never been the aggressor, and that my enemies have always been the authors of their own calamity." (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: Quotations from Chairman Mao
Author: Mao Tse-Tung
Publisher: Central Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (Beijing)
Printing Year:

Condition/Details: Bound in later brown printed wrappers with red and black lettering, this volume is a rare edition of the second most printed book in the world after the Bible. It is estimated that 5 billion copies were published between 1964 and 2009, the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. It contains extracts from Mao's speeches and published essays and was originally intended for high-ranking military officials, those in red vinyl binding for brigade teams of up to eight men and used for nightly study sessions. Copies in printed wrappers were issued first because there were delays in manufacturing the more durable red vinyl bindings.

An unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Mao in September 1971 was attributed to Lin Bao, Mao's designated and constitutional successor and comrade-in-arms. To eradicate his name from modern Chinese history, owners were ordered by the government to tear out Lin's printed endorsement at the front of every copy of "Quotations," so that the majority of surviving copies are so mutilated. All copies of the "Little Red Book" published from 1971 onwards omitted these pages. This copy is, however, complete as printed.

The book is illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Chairman Mao. The volume shows minor external age/wear, with solidly bound, age-toned pages. The book measures approximately 4" x 5 1/2" and contains 250 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50

Title: Official Souvenir Program, Pennsylvania State College versus University of Pittsburgh
Publisher: Department of Athletics, University of Pittsburgh
Printing Year: 1927

Condition/Details: Bound in pictorial wrappers of four football players, this antique volume is a scarce souvenir program from the Penn State versus University of Pittsburgh football game, held at Pitt Stadium on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1927. According to the program, Penn State at the time had won seven games and lost one game in 1927, and Pitt had won seven games and tied one. The program includes many black and white photographs, with pictures of the coaches Jock Sutherland (Panthers' coach) and Hugo Bezdek (Nittany Lions' coach), and original advertisements, including a color advertisement for Gulf Refining Company on the rear wrapper. This was the 30th game played between Penn State and Pitt, when Pitt won 30 to 0.

Once considered one of the most important college football rivalries north of the Mason-Dixon line, this intrastate rivalry was deemed the biggest annual game for both schools for a large part of their histories. The game often had regional and national implications with the winner often claiming Eastern college football supremacy and its respective Lambert-Meadowlands Trophy. The rivalry began a slow death in the 1990s when the schools left the ranks of college football independents and chose to join different conferences. Penn State accepted an invitation to join the Big Ten Conference while Pitt's football program joined the Big East Conference where the majority of the school's athletic programs already participated. The conference affiliations of the two previously independent football programs resulted in fewer scheduling opportunities. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

This volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with clean pages. The book measures approximately 7.75" x 10.75" and is unpaginated. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
