         Pompeji, Via di Nola.

      1884 1884 - Aquarell über Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, links unten signiert und datiert "AKips 84", verso bezeichnet „Pompei". 22:30 cm. Auf beigefügtem altem Untersatz mit roter Tusche bezeichnet „Reg. VII. INS.IV. Decvmanus Major. Via di Noja.". Nach dem Besuch der Lehranstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums in Berlin, setzte er seine Ausbildung bei dem Historienmaler E.J. Schaller (1841-1887) fort. Er führte zuerst dekorative Malereien in Schlössern und Privathäusern aus. Studienreisen durch Italien, Griechenland und Kleinasien folgten von 1883-1885. Ein Panorama von Pergamon, das er zusammen mit M.F. Koch (1859-1930) gemalt hatte, stellte er neben seinen aquarellierten Landschaft- und Architekturstudien 1886 auf der Gr. Berliner Kunstausstellung aus. Die Nachbildungen pompejanischer Wandmalereien, die vom Berliner Kunstgewerbemuseum erworben wurden, brachten ihm den Ruf an die Berliner Porzellanmanufaktur ein, wo er bis zu seinem Rücktritt 1908 als künstlerischer Leiter wirkte. 1893 folgte eine weitere Reise nach Italien. Kips Spezialgebiet war die Porzellanfliesenmalerei in ihrer Verwendung als Wanddekoration. Bis zu seinem Tod 1910 beschickte er erfolgreich zahlreiche Ausstellungen und ist heute mit Landschaftsaquarellen in mehreren deutschen Museen vertreten.

The frontispiece is a view of Shoshone Falls on the Snake River. The introductory remarks indicate that the text has been divided into twenty-six sections for easy reference, including a history of the Northwest Territory; missionaries and immigration; a description of Idaho Territory's physical features, climate, soils, and natural resources; the "state of society in the Territory," biographical sketches of prominent citizens, and public schools; the native peoples and animals; and "miscellaneous historical matters." In the section entitled "Primitive Inhabitants," the native tribes of the area are listed, with a brief description of each: "The Pend d'Oreilles are peaceable, industrious, and, in the main, self-supporting. Many of them have adopted the dress, and, in a measure, the customs and habits of civilized people.The Kootenay's are an indolent, thriftless people, too cowardly to fight, too indolent to work, and many of them too lazy to hunt.The Shoshones are well supplied with good horses, and warmly and decently clad, with the single exception, dirt." And so forth. There is an extensive section on the Nez Perce, encompassing the Nez Perce War and efforts to relocate the tribe to a reservation. This work contains a remarkable group of lithographs illustrating ranches, houses, and properties in the Territory, making it a tremendous visual resource for the American West. HOWES I2 "aa".

         Raven, The

      1884. Once Upon a Midnight Dreary, While I Pondered, Weak and Weary…"The First separate American and first edition illustrated by Gustave Dor? Probably the Finest Example Extant in the Plain Dust Jacket and Publisher's BoxDOR?, Gustave, Illustrator. POE, Edgar Allan. The Raven. Illustrated by Gustave Dor?. With comment by Edmund C. Stedman. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. First separate American edition and first edition illustrated by Dor?. Large folio (18 1/4 x 14 3/8 inches: 463 x 365 mm.). 14, [2], [19]-23 pp. Title-page illustration by Elihu Vedder. Twenty-six magnificent full-page plates by Gustave Dor?, all but the first and last with captioned tissue-guards. Publisher's gray cloth pictorially decorated in gilt and black, spine decoratively lettered in gilt and black, rear cover with pictorial design in black. Al edges gilt, brown coated end-papers. An absolutely mint and pristine copy. Probably the finest example extant in the exceptionally rare plain paper dust jacket and the publisher's blue paper printed box (slightly worn at edges) housed in a blue cloth clamshell case.Gustave Dor?'s final work.In 1884, Dor? produced 26 steel engravings for an illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s gloomy classic “The Raven.” Like all of his illustrations, the images are rich with detail, yet in contrast to his earlier work, particularly the fine lines of his Quixote, these engravings are softer, characterized by a deep chiaroscuro appropriate to the mood of the poem. We can see in the plate depicting the first lines of the poem, the haunted speaker, “weak and weary,” slumped over one of his many “quaint and curious volume[s] of forgotten lore.” and also the raven tapping, “louder than before,” at the window lattice.By the time Doré’s edition saw publication, Poe’s most famous work had already achieved recognition as one of the greatest of American poems. Its author, however, had died over thirty years previous in near-poverty. A catalog description from a Penn State Library holding of one of Doré’s “Raven” editions compares the two artists:The careers of these two men are fraught with both popular success and unmitigated disappointment. Doré enjoyed phenomenal monetary success as an illustrator in his life-time, however his true desire, to be acknowledged as a fine artist, was never realized. The critics of his day derided his abilities as an artist even as his popularity soared.One might say that Poe suffered the opposite fate—recognized as a great artist in his lifetime, he never achieved financial stability. We learn from the Penn State Rare Collections library that Doré received the rough equivalent of $140,000 for his illustrated edition of “The Raven.” Poe, on the other hand, was paid approximately nine dollars for his most famous poem.

         Von der Hofoper". Eigenh. Manuskript mit U.

      O. O. u. D. - 17 SS. auf 17 Bll. 8vo. Textvorlage des (wie von alter Hand vermerkt) in der "Österreichischen Rundschau" (II, Nr. 19) abgedruckten Aufsatzes: "In der ersten Zeit der jetzt wirkenden Direktion war die Hofoper den Bühnen ein Vorbild. Ihre Leitung hatte eine unbezähmbare Arbeitslust. Während kurzer Frist wurde eine bedeutende Zahl von Werken neu studiert, die Opernliteratur wurde durchgearbeitet, der Spielplan aufgefrischt. Ein neuer Geist war eingezogen [.]". - Robert Hirschfeld war als Musikkritiker u. a. für die "Wiener Zeitung", das "Neue Wiener Tagblatt" und die "Neue Freie Presse" tätig, redigierte die Programmbücher der Philharmonischen Konzerte und regte im Volksbildungsverein die Veranstaltung von Volkskonzerten mit klassischem Pogramm an, die er acht Jahre auch selbst leitete; 1884 begründete er die Renaissance-Abende zur Pflege des a-capella-Gesanges (Alte Musik) und die Jugendkonzerte. "Er zählte auch zu den Mitbegründern des Wiener Konzertvereins. Von Herbst 1913 bis zu seinem bald darauf erfolgten Ableben war Hirschfeld fachlicher Beirat und Schulinspektor des Salzburger Mozarteums, sollte dessen Musikfeste vorbereiten und dessen Musikschule reformieren. Hirschfeld, verheiratet mit der Wiener Hofopernsägerin (Sopran) Emma (Emmy) Karlona (1868-?), war Mitglied in verschiedenen Kommissionen des Kultus- und Unterrichtsministeriums sowie in Kuratorien u. a. der Wiener Musikakademie und (seit 1898) der Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Österreich" (Österreichisches Musiklexikon, s. v.).

         Raven, The

      1884. Once Upon a Midnight Dreary, While I Pondered, Weak and Weary…"The First separate American and first edition illustrated by Gustave Doré Probably the Finest Example Extant in the Plain Dust Jacket and Publisher's BoxDORÉ, Gustave, Illustrator. POE, Edgar Allan. The Raven. Illustrated by Gustave Doré. With comment by Edmund C. Stedman. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. First separate American edition and first edition illustrated by Doré. Large folio (18 1/4 x 14 3/8 inches: 463 x 365 mm.). 14, [2], [19]-23 pp. Title-page illustration by Elihu Vedder. Twenty-six magnificent full-page plates by Gustave Doré, all but the first and last with captioned tissue-guards. Publisher's gray cloth pictorially decorated in gilt and black, spine decoratively lettered in gilt and black, rear cover with pictorial design in black. Al edges gilt, brown coated end-papers. An absolutely mint and pristine copy. Probably the finest example extant in the exceptionally rare plain paper dust jacket and the publisher's blue paper printed box (slightly worn at edges) housed in a blue cloth clamshell case.Gustave Doré's final work.In 1884, Doré produced 26 steel engravings for an illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe?'s gloomy classic ?"The Raven.?" Like all of his illustrations, the images are rich with detail, yet in contrast to his earlier work, particularly the fine lines of his Quixote, these engravings are softer, characterized by a deep chiaroscuro appropriate to the mood of the poem. We can see in the plate depicting the first lines of the poem, the haunted speaker, ?"weak and weary,?" slumped over one of his many ?"quaint and curious volume[s] of forgotten lore.?" and also the raven tapping, ?"louder than before,?" at the window lattice.By the time Doré?'s edition saw publication, Poe?'s most famous work had already achieved recognition as one of the greatest of American poems. Its author, however, had died over thirty years previous in near-poverty. A catalog description from a Penn State Library holding of one of Doré?'s ?"Raven?" editions compares the two artists:The careers of these two men are fraught with both popular success and unmitigated disappointment. Doré enjoyed phenomenal monetary success as an illustrator in his life-time, however his true desire, to be acknowledged as a fine artist, was never realized. The critics of his day derided his abilities as an artist even as his popularity soared.One might say that Poe suffered the opposite fate—recognized as a great artist in his lifetime, he never achieved financial stability. We learn from the Penn State Rare Collections library that Doré received the rough equivalent of $140,000 for his illustrated edition of ?"The Raven.?" Poe, on the other hand, was paid approximately nine dollars for his most famous poem.

         The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

      - London: Chatto & Windus, 1884. 8vo, xvi, 438, (2), 32 pp. Illustrated. Original red cloth with gilt titles, pictorially stamped in black. Small booksellerÕs ticket on front pastedown, inscription dated December 22, 1884 (month of publication) on half-title. Small faint dampstain on upper cover, equally faint spotting on rear cover, printing flaw on page 132, a handsome copy. First English edition, first state (with the October 1884 publisherÕs catalogue), preceding the American edition by four months. This copy is bound with staples, while others were bound more conventionally with string. While there is no priority between the two, it is quite difficult to find staple-bound copies in desirable condition today as the ill-conceived English experiment with staples proved very unsatisfactory. The English Chatto & Windus edition was published during the first week of December 1884, with copies then being advertised as available and for sale. The copyright for the American edition was filed at about the same time, but copies were not actually issued until four months later. BAL 3414. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Decret zufolge - ich von Sr. Hoheit dem Herzog Ernst von Sachsen-Altenburg zu höchst dessen Kammervirtuos ernannt bin [.]" (Köln, 5. VII.

Rubinstein zu bestellen + Sie um Überlassung der Partitur zu Rubinstein's Romance + Caprice für einige Tage zur Durchsicht zu bitten, da mir Rubinstein, mit dem ich das genannte Werk in Wien gespielt, sagte, daß er die Partitur nicht mehr besitze sondern Ihnen gesandt habe [.]" (1. II. 1872). - "Hierdurch ersuche [ich] mir umgehend [.] das Pendant-Quartett zu Rubinstein's G moll Streichquartett [.] zu senden [.] Es liegt mir sehr daran, das Quartett umgehend zu erhalten, da Rubinstein demnächst hieher kommt + ich ihm bei dieser Gelegenheit das bereits mit meinen Quartettgenossen studierte G moll Quartett privatim vorspielen [.] möchte [.]" (16.

Zu seinem engeren Freundeskreis zählten Edvard Grieg (dessen ihm gewidmetes Streichquartett Heckmann 1878 in Köln uraufführte) und Max Bruch, "den er in violintechnischen Fragen zu den Violinkonzerten beriet" (Friedrich Frick: Kleines Biographisches Lexikon der Violinisten.

         Die Canalisation von Berlin. Im Auftrage des Magistrats der Königl. Haupt- und Residenzstadt Berlin entworfen und ausgeführt von James Hobrecht. Nebst einem Atlas in Gross-Folio mit 57 Tafeln.

      . Berlin, Verlag von Ernst & Korn, 1884, 4°, (6), 330 pp., mit Abbildungen und Tabellen. Erste Ausgabe! - James Friedrich Ludolf Hobrecht (31. Dezember 1825 in Memel - 8. September 1902 in Berlin) "war ein preußischer Stadtplaner und für Berlins ersten perspektivischen Bebauungsplan, den Hobrecht-Plan von 1862 verantwortlich. Als Stadtbaurat organisierte er ab 1885 die Einführung der Stadtentwässerung und machte sich damit um die Gesundheit der Berliner Bevölkerung verdient. - - Nach einer landwirtschaftlichen und Bauingenieurausbildung legte er 1858 die Wasser-, Wege- und Eisenbahnbaumeisterprüfung ab und wurde im selben Jahr als Regierungsbaumeister bei der damals für Baufragen zuständigen Königlichen Polizei (Baupolizei) angestellt. Ab 1859 wurde er Leiter der Kommission zur Ausarbeitung des Bebauungsplans der Umgebungen Berlins. Eine Inspektionsreise 1860 nach Hamburg, Paris, und nach London und in andere englische Städte diente dem Kennenlernen des neuesten Entwicklungsstandes für das Vorhaben eines modernen Kanalisations- und Entwässerungssystems. Der von ihm maßgeblich entwickelte Bebauungsplan der Umgebungen Berlins, der so genannte Hobrecht-Plan, sah als Fluchtlinienplan ein Konzept von Ring- und Ausfallstraßen für die Städte Berlin und Charlottenburg sowie umliegende Gemeinden vor. 1862 trat der Plan in Kraft, der bis heute eine Grundlage der Berliner Bebauungs- und Verkehrsstruktur bildet. - - Als ihm zum 15. Dezember 1861 gekündigt wurde, wechselte er nach Stettin. Er ließ hier unter anderem ein Trinkwassernetz erbauen und projektierte ein Kanalisationssystem, das ab 1870 verwirklicht wurde. - - Mit Unterstützung seines Bruders Arthur Hobrecht, der 1872 Berliner Oberbürgermeister wurde, und des Arztes Rudolf Virchow wurde er 1869 mit der Umsetzung seiner Pläne einer Kanalisation für Berlin mit 12 Radialsystemen betraut. In jedem dieser 12 Gebiete gab es eigenständige unterirdische Kanäle und Abwassersammler, die zu jeweils einer Pumpstation führten. Von dort wurden das Hausabwasser und das Regenwasser über Druckleitungen nach außen zu den ebenfalls neu angelegten Berliner Rieselfeldern gepumpt. Diese von 1873 bis 1893 fertiggestellten Radialsysteme machten Berlin damals zur Stadt mit der modernsten Entwässerung und zur saubersten Stadt der Welt. Neben Stettin und Berlin half er Potsdam und etwa 30 weiteren deutschen Gemeinden sowie Moskau, Tokio und Kairo bei der Abwasserbeseitigung." wiki - - First Edition! James Hobrecht (1825-1902) was responsible for the construction of the Berlin sewers. - - Garrison & Morton No.1624
