Details/Condition:"Scrimshaw is the name given to handiwork created by whalers made from the byproducts of harvesting marine mammals. It is most commonly made out of the bones and teeth of sperm whales, the baleen of other whales, and the tusks of walruses. It takes the form of elaborate carvings in the form of pictures and lettering on the surface of the bone or tooth, with the engravings highlighted using a pigment, or small sculptures made from the same material. The making of scrimshaw began on whaling ships between 1745 to 1759 on the Pacific Ocean, and survived until the ban on commercial whaling. The practice survives as a hobby and as a trade for commercial artisans" (courtesy of Wikipedia). This whale tooth scrimshaw by Brook Delagarza features the image of a whale carved into the tooth. Upon the carved image is an illustrations of two large sailboats, one small rowboat filled with people, one whale tail sticking up out of the water and one whale partially exposed being harpooned by the members of the small rowboat.

The letter is dated May 1909 and reads: "Indeed it is long since we met and I have again and again been on the point of writing to you, but daily thought you would appear and report about yourself. I went to Boston last month for a visit of ten days, and since my return, have been more than usually busy - not with my writing, alas! but with purely practical matters. But my visit to Boston refreshed and rested me and I came back in good shape to put my shoulder to the wheel again. I finished my essay on Freedom before I left - fairly to my satisfaction - and shall be delighted to read it to you , whenever you have time to come and listen to it. I am glad you have been busy, and hope you will get through your examinations successfully and feel that you can take up your life with courage and spirit. I have not seen Miss Lampter for a long, long time, and hardly know what is happening to her. I may go away in June, but do not expect to leave for the summer month July - so we shall certainly meet, more than once, I hope. Indeed these Spring days are enchanting. Where does such beauty come from? and where does it go, alas! Call me up over the telephone, when you have leisure to come and see me, and believe me, as always, sincerely, your friend, Josephine Lazarus."

Lot 7362

$70
This lot features four volumes of bound early magazine compilations which house issues from The Art Journal published by George Virtue (London). As was a popular practice during the 1800s and early twentieth century, individual magazine issues were bound together in single hard-cover volumes. The four compilations featured in this lot include all the issues for the years 1886, 1887, 1888 and 1889. These books are large format with elaborate one-quarter leather bindings with marbled paper-covered boards, decorative gilt embossing along their spines, full gilt page edging along the 1886 and 1887 volumes, and raised bands. Each volume contains an index and is profusely illustrated with high quality engravings printed on heavy stock, single-sided along with an occasional color plate.

The Art Journal, published in London, was the most important Victorian journal on art. It was founded in 1839 by Hodgson & Graves, print publishers, 6 Pall Mall with the title The Art Union Monthly Journal, the first issue, 750 copies, appearing in February of 1839.

Hodgson & Graves hired Samuel Carter Hall as editor, assisted by James Dafforne. Hall soon became principal proprietor, but, unable to turn a profit on his own, the London publisher George Virtue purchased into Hall's Art Union Monthly Journal in 1848, retaining Hall as editor. Virtue renamed the periodical The Art Journal in 1849.

As editor, Hall exposed the profits that custom-houses were earning by importing old masters, and showed how paintings are manufactured in England. Simultaneously, The Art Journal became notable for its honest portrayal of fine arts, but its opposition to fake and misattributed Old Masters, such as a Raphael or a Titian, affected the market in such works adversely.

The early issues of the Journal strongly supported the artists of The Clique and after 1850 it became associated with opposition to the emerging Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB), which Hall considered to be a reactionary movement. Its articles attacked the PRB and its supporter John Ruskin. The most notable essayists included: R. N. Wornum, Thomas Wright, F. W. Fairholt, Edward Lewes Cutts, and Llewellynn Jewitt.

After Hall's retirement in 1880, the journal changed its position, faced with strong competition from the Magazine of Art and the changing public taste influenced by Impressionism. However, it was unable to retain its position and ceased publication in 1912.

The publication has been referred to, at various times, as London Art Journal and Art-journal. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)
