LAOCOON ENGRAVED REZZONICO, Carlo Castone della Torre di.
Discorsi accademici del conte … segretario perpetuo della R. Accademia delle Belle Arti.
First and only edition of an exquisite little product of the Bodoni house: Count Rezzonico’s reflections on the fine arts, including a dissertation on the techniques of woodcut and engraving. The Neo-Classical aesthetics that inform this work are reflected in the illustrations, masterfully executed by the painter, engraver and stucco artist Benigno Bossi. Perhaps the most remarkable is the depiction of the marble Laocoon, which had been made by Lessing the symbol of the aesthetic autonomy of poetry and painting.
NEUHAUSS, Dr. Richard.
Microphotographs of snow crystals and ice structures,
Dr. Richard Neuhauss (1855 –1915) was an anthropologist and doctor of tropical medicine, who took a world tour in 1884. He had a broad interest in scientific photography, which he used for academic purposes, and in 1894, alongside his professional work, he became the director and editor of the Photography Rundschau, a German journal for amateur photographers. As an anthropologist he spent time between 1908 and 1910 in German New Guinea. His interests also extended to botany and flight. After the outbreak of the First World War, he directed a disease station in Berlin-Lichterfelde, where he was to die of an infection.
