Muybridge, Eadweard 1830-1904.

Animals in Motion.

Date. 1918 4th imp..

London, Chapman Hall. Oblong 4to, [9 1/2 x 11 1/2ins]. Pp. 264 + Approx, 3,919 photographs (Chronophotography.), covering (approx) 34 different animals in 132 characteristic motions. Signed portrait print of Eadweard Muybridge opposite title page. Scattered spots throughout, mostly in margins.

Muybridge's photography of horses in motion began in 1872 at Leland Stanford's stock farm in Palo Alto. After one year of intense photography in 1877-8, Muybridge's work continued here intermittently until 1881. Muybridge and Stanford were close acquaintances at the beginning of this partnership. However, this particular business association is said to have started because Stanford wanted to settle a bet around whether all four of a horse's hooves left the ground at speed; something Muybridge's single shot motion photographs of 'Occident' - one of Stanford's trotters - proved correct. Nicks to outer edges not affecting images. Covers loose. Rare copy...... £200.00

Whilst stationed at the Khyber Pass Edward Hardman met Captain Kenneth Burrell, a man who hadn't planned on an army career but rather hoped to set up a photographic studio back home in Liverpool, England. Hardman and Burrell decided to go into business together and in 1923, they acquired 51a Bold Street in Liverpool's fashionable commercial centre. Starting the business was difficult, and Hardman resorted to selling and repairing wirelesses to subsidize the studio. Eventually it gained a reputation for being the place for anyone with distinction in Merseyside to be photographed by Burrell & Hardman. His house and studio, at 59 Rodney Street, was taken over by the E. Chambré Hardman Trust to conserve his work, which was later transferred to the National Trust...... £65.00

From 1840, he studied in Paris for five years in the Cauchoix photographic studio before opening a photography and optician shop in Venice at the beginning of the 1850's . He soon became famous for inventing camera lenses, especially one that produces panoramic views. His first catalogue, including 160 architectural views, was issued in 1855. At this point, his closest assistants are Giuseppe Bresolio (Bresolin?), Fortunato Antonio Perini and Carlo Naya. During the 1860's Carlo Ponti offered an album of about 20 views of Venice, entitled "Ricordo di Venezia". The albums are all different and indicate that clients could choose the photographs to be bound up or if preferred loose in a portfolio. In 1866 he was appointed optician and photographer to the King of Italy Victor-Emmanuel II.

Local playwrights were encouraged to mount Western-style operatic and musical productions that had appeal to a growing middle- and upper class sophistication. The Teikoku Gekijo Kaisha (Imperial Theatre Company), had seating for 1700, was founded in 1910 with the purpose of building Japan's first Western-style theatre and producing the country's first non-Japanese theatre programs. The result was the Teikoku Gekijo (Imperial Theatre, also known as the Imperial Garden Theatre), completed in 1911 on land in the Marunouchi district across from the Imperial Palace plaza. Many of the Imperial Theatre's earliest productions were translations of foreign operas, plays and musicals. A translation of Hamlet, written by Tsubouchi Shoyo and produced by the Bungei Kyokai (Literary Arts Society) in 1911, was the theatre's first complete work performed on the theatre's stage. The Magic Flute, produced in early 1912 with an all-Japanese cast, was the theatre's first operatic performance.
