Now that your 'Verlobung' [engagement] is officially announced I must offer you my warmest congratulations and hope that the greatest event in your life, will be productive of the greatest possible happiness", adding that "As your marriage is not to be till next year, I hope we shall see you in England before that time, & that Bernhard may also be tempted to come over", ending "Aunt Alix sends you her best love & with ours to your dear 'Geschwister' [brothers & sisters] . your devoted 'Uncle Bertie' ", embossed monogram AE within the Garter, Marlborough House, 4 sides 7" x 4½" in crisp condition It is said that Charlotte was the only one in her family who chose her own spouse, Bernhard III of Saxe-Meiningen.

         Spy cartoon & autograph of W. G. Grace, "Cricket" [with] autograph. "no cricketer, living or dead, has ever approached him"

      Vanity Fair, London 1877 - Spy cartoon of the eminent Victorian cricketer, with a cut signature of Grace. Impressive full length portrait of Grace, putting on his right hand glove, his bat tucked under one arm, wearing a colorful hooped cap and sash. His beard carefully trimmed and a quizzical expression on his face. William Gilbert Grace (1848 - 1915), was an British amateur cricketer considered to be one of the greatest players of the game and known by all as W. G. (also the Doctor, the Champion, the Big 'Un, and the Old Man). The Guardian said of Grace: "Dr. William Gilbert Grace was by common consent the greatest and most attractive figure that ever appeared on the cricket field. In his all-round mastery of the game, in the length of years during which he stood far above all rivals, in the amazing sum total of his cricketing achievements, and by no means least of all in the popular interest he excited, no cricketer, living or dead, has ever approached him, and it is doubtful if any ever will. For many years he held the record for the highest individual score. The most remarkable year of Dr. Grace's career was 1895, when he was 47 years of age. In that season he scored a thousand runs before the end of May, completed his hundredth century and finally scored 2,346 runs. (The Guardian, obituary Monday 25 October 1915).Printed for "Vanity Fair" magazine supplement, color chromolithograph, 10 1/2 x 16" [with] nicely signed autograph "W. G. Grace" in black ink and underlined, approximately 4 1/2 x 1 1/2". The caricature with a shallow quarter inch crescent chip at right edge and faint damp stain which is completely obscured by archival mounting. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

         Architecture in Ancient Rome - Alma-Tadema, 1877.

      ARCHITECTURE IN ANCIENT ROMEEts uit 1877 van de hand van Leopold L?wenstam naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXXI) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gemonogrammeerd door Alma-Tadema. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 18 x 17 cm.Op Architecture in Ancient Rome werken hoog op een steiger drie Griekse beeldhouwers aan een kolossaal beeld van Apollo. Samen met Sculpture (en nog een derde, Painters) vormen ze een serie over de kunsten in de Oudheid.De serie etsen werden vervaardigd voor publicatie in het kunsttijdschrift The Art Journal. De schilderijen waarnaar de etsen gemaakt zijn, waren bij uitzondering gemaakt op koperplaten, die wellicht afkomstig waren van de etser. Nadat de prenten gepubliceerd waren, kreeg Alma-Tadema ze onder ogen en was niet tevreden met het resultaat. Alma-Tadema had al eerder een conflict gehad met etser L?wenstam over de kwaliteit van diens werk. De schilder was nauwkeurig betrokken bij het reproductieproces en stuurde dit veelvuldig bij. Alma-Tadema gaf aanwijzingen in de hoop dat de prentmaker hieraan kon en wilde voldoen. Met zijn perfectionistische instelling zat de schilder in een lastig parket, hij bleef immers afhankelijk van de kwaliteit en inzet van de etser en de uitgever en kon niet volledig zijn eigen koers varen.Dat Alma-Tadema zich moet hebben neergelegd bij het resultaat van de etsen van L?wenstam, blijkt uit het feit dat beide prenten niet alleen verschenen in The Art Journal, maar?zoals de exemplaren hier te zien?ook als losse uitgaven (en voorzien van een monogram) werden verkocht.Prijs: ?750,- (incl. lijst).

         Set of six original pencil drawings of the crab Daphnella Brachyura

      1877. WEISMANN, August. Set of detailed anatomical drawings of the crab, Daphnella Brachyura. [Lake Bodensee, Austria], 1877. Six original pencil drawings on stiff paper, the largest measuring 12 by 8-1/2 inches, the smallest 6-1/2 by 4-3/4 inches. $1800.Six intricate pencil drawings of the crab Daphnella Brachyura used to produce the five plates in Gruber and WeismannÂ’s 1877 monograph, Ueber einige neue oder unvollkommen gekannte Daphniden.Neo-Darwinian and one of the founders of the science of genetics, August Weismann, is perhaps best known for his theory of “germ plasm,” forerunner of DNA theory, in opposition to the prevailing doctrine of the inheritance of acquired traits. Germ plasm, he contended, is not affected by anything the body learns during its life, and therefore has no information to pass on to the next generation. This came to be called the “Weismann barrier.” In his capacity as professor of zoology at the University of Freiburg, Weismann published numerous memoirs on insect embryology, small crustaceans and hydrozoa (DSB). This series of intricate anatomical pencil drawings of the crab specimen, Daphnella Brachyura, taken from Lake Bodensee (Constance) in Austria, is finished and keyed, ready for the engraver. They were used to produce the five folding plates that illustrate Gruber and WeismannÂ’s Ueber einige neue oder unvollkommen gekannte Daphniden (1877). According to the authors, Daphnella belongs to the group Brachyura, which included the majority of Crustacea, although more recent discoveries suggest that this specimen resembles the classification Anomura, characterized by a stunted fifth pair of legs. “The fifth pair of legs is generally weak, not fit either for walking, swimming, or grasping food or preyÂ… I am not aware that any function has ever been assigned to the fifth pair of legs in this section of the Anomura, though in another family, the Lithodidae [stone crabs], where the fifth pair of legs are slender, chelate, and folded in the branchial chambers, they may be used to keep the branchial clear of parasites and thus be of advantage to the animal” (T.R.R. Stebbing). Two drawings contain manuscript notations in German. Two drawings contain manuscript notations in German. Extremely good condition.

Blanford, a member of the Geological Survey of India, during 1876-77. Blanford, who joined the Survey in 1855, was a deputy Superintendent, and worked in a number of locations in India, including Orissa, the Rajmahal Hills, Raneegunge and Malwa and the Central Provinces.

Contemporary blind-tooled brown cloth, with metal clasps, gilt title on front board, gilt edges.

      - NCC (2 copies); cf. C. Boschma, "De historische tentoonstelling van Friesland in 1877" in: De vrije Fries LVII (1977), pp. 17-32; for Matthijsen and Ringler see: photographen.nl. Album containing 37 photographs (including 1 repeat) of the Historical exhibition of Friesland held in the royal palace of Leeuwarden in the summer of 1877, giving a valuable display of the exhibition and its historical artefacts. The well-received photos were made by the, Leeuwarden-based, female photographer Gerarda Henrietta Matthijssen (1846-1879) by request of Antiquarian Cabinet of Friesland, upon which she was allowed to call herself royal photographer. The photos were apparently also sold together in a limited issue album as we could locate two other copies: one in the library of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam and one in the collection of Tresoar, Leeuwarden.One of the three loosely inserted leaves with photographs, contains a manuscript owner's inscription of another Leeuwarden-based photographer, Hendrik Anthonie Karel Ringler (1846-1879).Some minor thumbing on the title-page and some occasional foxing throughout, not affecting the photographs, otherwise in very good condition. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities, otherwise good.

         John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1877 - 1877 Original Wisden Rebound with Covers

      1877. This 1877 Wisden was rebound a little time ago in brown boards with a green leather spine and corners. The original wrappers have been preserved and are in excellent, unrestored, clean condition. There are are one or two small marks to the front and rear boards. The spine has the title and year in gilt and an old owner's initials at the base of the spine. Internally, the book is in fabulous condition. The wrappers are complete, unrestored with just the odd tiny mark. The remaining contents are complete, original, unmarked and in fine condition. I suspect that the book was rebound quite some time ago and as a result the original contents and wrappers have been brilliantly preserved. A really nice example.

         Autograph letter signed ("Napoléon").

      Apparently Camden Place, Chislehurst, Kent, [1. V. 1877]. - 8vo. 1 page on bifolium. In French, to "mon cher Général" whom he invites to England to speak with him about the turn that events will take. A meeting is about to be held in Camden where the general will meet among others Raoul Duval (French politician, 1807-1893). On the eve of this meeting Napoléon IV would like to take the advice of the most influential and powerful men. Napoléon IV does not want to give an official character to this little reunion in order not to harm certain people but still he asks the general to show this letter which could be taken for a convocation rather than an invitation. Napoléon IV ends his letter by sending his regards to the general's wife and sons as well as to the general himself, asking him to arrive in England on the 5th or 6th May. - On headed paper "Camden Place, Chislehurst".

      San Francisco: Morse's Gallery, 1877. First edition. original burgundy cloth lettered in gilt. Expertly rebacked and refurbished, preserving original cloth, interior with minimal brown spots and foxing. Quarto (covers). 11 albumen prints, approx. 88 inches altogether when opened, each photo approximately 8 by 7.5 inches, mounted on linen and accordion folded This iconic panorama, 360 degrees, of San Francisco was created by Muybridge the summer of 1877 and consists of eleven photographs.

The panorama was photographed from the tower of the unfinished residence of Mark Hopkins, the railroad king, at California Street hill, now known as Nob Hill.

         Architecture in Ancient Rome - Alma-Tadema, 1877.

      ARCHITECTURE IN ANCIENT ROMEEts uit 1877 van de hand van Leopold Löwenstam naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXXI) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gemonogrammeerd door Alma-Tadema. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 18 x 17 cm.Op Architecture in Ancient Rome werken hoog op een steiger drie Griekse beeldhouwers aan een kolossaal beeld van Apollo. Samen met Sculpture (en nog een derde, Painters) vormen ze een serie over de kunsten in de Oudheid.De serie etsen werden vervaardigd voor publicatie in het kunsttijdschrift The Art Journal. De schilderijen waarnaar de etsen gemaakt zijn, waren bij uitzondering gemaakt op koperplaten, die wellicht afkomstig waren van de etser. Nadat de prenten gepubliceerd waren, kreeg Alma-Tadema ze onder ogen en was niet tevreden met het resultaat. Alma-Tadema had al eerder een conflict gehad met etser Löwenstam over de kwaliteit van diens werk. De schilder was nauwkeurig betrokken bij het reproductieproces en stuurde dit veelvuldig bij. Alma-Tadema gaf aanwijzingen in de hoop dat de prentmaker hieraan kon en wilde voldoen. Met zijn perfectionistische instelling zat de schilder in een lastig parket, hij bleef immers afhankelijk van de kwaliteit en inzet van de etser en de uitgever en kon niet volledig zijn eigen koers varen.Dat Alma-Tadema zich moet hebben neergelegd bij het resultaat van de etsen van Löwenstam, blijkt uit het feit dat beide prenten niet alleen verschenen in The Art Journal, maar?zoals de exemplaren hier te zien?ook als losse uitgaven (en voorzien van een monogram) werden verkocht.Prijs: ?750,- (incl. lijst).

         Autograph postcard initialed

      1877. Signed. WHITMAN, Walt. Autograph postcard, initialed by Whitman. Camden, October 2, 1877. Original postcard measures 5 by 3 inches); handsomely window framed with portrait, entire piece measures 18 by 12-1/2 inches. $4500.Original autograph postcard to fellow poet Edward Carpenter: “Camden, New Jersey, US America. Oct 2 [1877]— I merely write to say at once that your letter & the postal or[der] have both been safely rec’d.— The books (to the address given) will be sent immediately.— I am well for me— H[erbert] G[ilchrist] is at John B[urroughs]’s on the Hudson— Mrs. G[ilchrist] is ill in bed— Harry [Stafford] is well— Will write more fully soon. Thanks & love, WW.” Framed together with a portrait of Whitman.On October 2, 1877, Whitman wrote this postcard to his friend British poet Edward Carpenter, whose best-known poem ""Towards Democracy"" clearly shows Whitman's influence, informing him of a shipment of books, probably copies of the second printing of Two Rivulets. Two Rivulets had first appeared a year earlier, ""partly as my contribution to our National Centennial,"" and was reissued in September of 1876. Whitman's reference to Herbert Gilchrist's visit with John Burroughs took place at ""Slabsides,"" Burroughs' ""hermit's retreat"" on the banks of the Hudson. Herbert's mother, Anne Gilchrist was one of Whitman's greatest admirers. Her appreciative article on Leaves of Grass was praised by William Rossetti as ""the fullest, farthest, and most eloquent,"" and Whitman thought there was ""no eulogium so magnificent."" In December of 1877 she wrote a friend that she was still recovering from ""a somewhat severe operation (under ether) to cure an injury received at the birth of one of my children"" (Kaplan, 366). Harry Stafford was Whitman's ""young man,"" whom he had met ""at the Camden print shop, where Whitman saw Two Rivulets through the press"" (Kaplan,359). Postcard lightly embrowned, expert repair to vertical tear. Very desirable Whitman item with revealing content.

The last few pages of this section include an "Analysis of Vowels and Consonants," written in double columns in English and Masquerier's reformed language.Masquerier began his career in his native Kentucky as a printer and lawyer before moving east where he promoted the communistic vision of Robert Owen, applying in 1842 to join the "Communist Society" sponsored by the British utopian Goodwyn Barmby, and finally joining radical publisher George Henry Evans's National Reform Association. Among Masquerier's many radical schemes, most of which are delineated in the present work, was a proposal he made to the architect of Central Park Frederick Law Olmstead to convert 80 acres of land just outside New York into a self-sustaining community powered by windmills.
