"Summer at the Beach" is the theme for our July featured sale items, starting with four rare mid-19th-century tinted lithograph views of the Virgin Islands when they were still the Danish West Indies. At the seashore, we gather sea shells and catch butterflies from Albertus Seba's famous 18th-century cabinet of curiosities. As dusk falls, we explore the starlit summer skies with a vintage Rand McNally celestial globe. Our sale items also include two engravings of mythological scenes after the Mannerist painter Hendrick Goltzius featuring a centaur and a dragon. Surf on over to https://www.georgeglazer.com/wpmain/featured-sale-items/ for more details!

The Wall Street Journal featured our W. & A.K. Johnston/ Kittinger 30-inch Floor Globe in the article “The Gentleman Cave: How to Create a Tastefully Macho Room.” (Photo and text from the article shown here.) This huge globe — on a bold, impressively carved stand — makes a major statement in a library, entrance hall, or executive office. The one in the article was quickly put on hold, but we have another impressive 30-inch globe from the same period, discounted through 7/15/18 to $27,500 (pictures and description available upon request).

We don't usually post sold items, but this 18th-century print after the Flemish painter David Teniers, titled "Philosopher Laughing at Magick," intrigues us. It might be presumed that the fantastical creatures and supernatural forces associated with alchemy and magic that surround the philosopher — a man of reason — are described in the book that he is reading with a bemused and skeptical smile on his face. The title of the print states that the philosopher is laughing at magic, but its overwhelming presence in the print makes his relationship with mysticism and the occult somewhat ambiguous. Is he instead an alchemist or fascinated by the theories of alchemy?

Lots going on in this antique moonlit view of the 1884 Montreal Winter Carnival! A huge ice palace with a procession of men with torches, visitors, and horse-drawn sleighs, and inset views of tobogganers on a steep hill and ice skaters in festive costumes. The print is highlighted with glitter, giving a snow blown effect. On sale now: http://www.georgeglazer.com/news/features.html?tab=2

A scarce decorative advertising broadside from the 1860s is currently on loan from the George Glazer Gallery to a temporary exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York. New York on Ice — currently on view until April 15th — is an entertaining look at the history of ice skating in the city (lower right in the installation photo). The print is featured in a section on the skating craze in the mid 19th century, when the Central Park Lake drew huge crowds of New Yorkers of all ages and social classes. The broadside advertises skating equipment sold by a Lower Manhattan sporting goods store in a playful composition that is over three feet wide. Also available after the exhibition closes at a special sale price --

We also offer a fashion satire from the 1820s masquerading as a still life, and a map of Africa published by the Homann Heirs in 1806.

Along with Billie Jean King, Bobby Riggs and Jack Kramer are the main characters in the new movie "Battle of the Sexes," starring Emma Stone, Steve Carell and Bill Pullman, that tells the story of the televised match King played against Riggs in 1973. 25 years earlier, Riggs and Kramer were international tennis stars competing against each other, as shown in this vintage 1948 poster from our gallery. #battleofthesexes #bobbyriggs #jackkramer #tennis https://www.georgeglazer.com/wpmain/product/tennis-posters-world-championship-1940s-jack-kramer-pancho-gonzales-bobby-riggs/
