         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. III. 1876). - Robert Heckmann, einst Violinschüler von Ferdinand David am Leipziger Konservatorium, bereits als Violinvirtuose Deutschland und die Nachbarländer, wurde 1872 in Köln seßhaft und bekleidete daselbst bis 1882 das Amt des Konzertmeisters im Gürzenich-Orchester; wenige Jahre vor seinem Tod wurde er auch Konzertmeister im Orchester des Bremer Stadttheaters. 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. Books on Demand, 2009, S. 198). - Kleinere Gebrauchsspuren; der Br. v. [November od. Dezember 1884] aus Glasgow mit ausgerissenem linken Rand und dieser lose beiliegend). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         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

         An Archive of Over 100 significant Letters and Documents in the Period 1907-1919 of One of the Earliest Telephone Companies In Ohio

      The collection contains 125 pieces of original correspondence including both TLS (Typed Letters Signed) and ((LS) Letters Signed. What began as a small electrical shop for the repair and manufacture of telephone equipment in 1884 as the north Electric Works grew to become the North Electric Company in 1889. By the early 20th Century the company became one of the most prominent manufacturing business in Ohio employing over 300 workers. After being in business for over a century, the business first was taken over by Ericsson and the by IYTY. These letters pertain to the problems stemming from a patent for the automatic ringing mechanism, switch boards and operators as well as dealing with their manufacture under Canadian Parents which became know as the Telechronometer Co. The big change ended the flat-rate system and introduced meters which could measure the length of calls and, of course, increase the cost to the consumer. For the next sixty years, the telephone company became a monopoly enforced by patent, licenses, bonds, under the Bell and AT&T trademarks.. Quarto.

An indispensable guide for ships navigating the southern coast of China at the end of the nineteenth century. The decades worth of data compiled here describe coastlines, depths, island formations, anchorages, tides, weather etc. We can find no bibliographic record for previous volumes and OCLC lists only one copy of both this edition and the 1874 edition. Some scattered foxing, overall a very nice copy of a book that most often would have found itself used to pieces on board a ship.

         Autograph Letter Signed from Czechoslovak Independence Movement Leader and Future President EDUARD BENES

      - BENES, EDUARD. (1884-1948). Czechoslovak statesman; president from 1935-38 and 1946-48. ALS. ("Eduard Benes" and "E.B."). 2¼pp. 8vo. Paris, August 27, N.y. [between 1916 and 1918]. On stationery of the Czechoslovak National Council. To French Anthropologist Dr. Arthur Chervin. In French with translation. "I have tried to find a map of Serbia, but I am sorry that I have not found anything of the sort you want. I do not have a general staff map, and what I have here is not detailed enough. But in a week I will receive a German atlas where I hope to find the maps you are looking for. If you could wait a little longer, I would be very glad to make this atlas available to you. I am sorry that I cannot help you at this very moment. With my very best wishes, I am yours respectfully. - P.S. Surely you know that in the book by [Louis] Niederle La Race Slav there are references, obviously not quite sufficient, that might be of help to you." During World War I, Benes emerged as one of the leaders of the Czech independence movement, which sought autonomy from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, of which it had long been a part. In 1915, Benes traveled to Paris to garner foreign support for the movement, forming the Czechoslovak National Council there in 1916. For two years he served as the organization's secretary as well as minister of the interior and foreign affairs for the provisional Czechoslovak government. Upon the declaration of Czech independence signed by Benes in 1918, he became the new country's first foreign minister, a position he held until 1935 when he replaced Tomás Masaryk as president. Much of his presidency was spent in exile because of the nation's dismemberment under the terms of the Munich Pact concluded between Great Britain and Germany. During World War II, he headed a provisional government in London, returning home at the war's end to become president for the second time in 1946, holding office until shortly after the Communist takeover two years later. Chervin is the author of Bolivian Anthropology, Some Skulls of Estonians and Military Anthropometry. In excellent condition and uncommon in ALS and from this period. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be requested. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Journal of Indian Art and Industry

      1. INDIA. Journal of Indian Art and Industry. Volume 1 through Volume 9 Number 72.Bound in 9 Volumes. Illustrated with 925 plates of which 435 are chromolithographs. Folio, bound in later cloth with the original wrappers bound in. London: W.Griggs: 1884-1900.The present set comprises the first nine volumes of the Journal of Indian Art. The series, printed in 17 volumes between the years 1884 and 1917 under the patronage of the Indian Government, combined essays of leading scholars, such as George M. Birdwood and John Lockwood Kipling, with photo- and chromolithographic illustrations of pottery, metalwork, jewelry, architectural details, tapestries and textiles, many with gold and silver overprinting. The journal, especially the early issues, outlines a series of debates that occurred in the latter half of the nineteenth-century pertaining to colonial art history and the differentiation between "industrial" and "traditional" arts in India. This set represents the highpoint of the art of chromolithography. Most sets went into institutions, and when they do appear on the market tend to reflect that, with the plates often stamped and the sets seriously defective. This set has survived in remarkably good condtion, with the plates bright, fresh and unstamped.. Indispensable from anyone interested in Indian art. The set is fundamentally complete, but it is possibly lacking two plates from no 16 (inlay/sandlewood carving, and pottery and lacquerware) , and 33 (lacking plate 12, so has only 18 plates, but there is an extra unnumbered plate, leaving the plate count correct). However, number 15 calls for 12 plates but has 15 plates, of which one is a duplicate. In sum, it is possibly lacking two plates but has three additional plates.

Jules Le Petit: printed justification; Bernard Breslauer. *** first edition, l’exemplaire de t?te, printed on vellum for the author’s wife with the etched vignettes in three states, extra to the regular paper edition, in-octavo, in 110 copies of which 10 on Holland, 40 on Japan and 60 on Whatman. In 17 letters the author instructs a novice book collector in the art of forming a bibliophile’s library. The focus is naturally French, with chapters on collecting early French literature, the classics, and modern writers. Le Petit emphasizes the need for a bibliographical reference library, explains how to choose the correct edition, delves into association and signed copies, and in the last two chapters briefly surveys bookbinding and binders. He devotes a paragraph to Lortic (1822-1892), one of the most gifted modern binders, an especially skilled finisher, if controversial for his sometimes heavy use of gold. In 1884 Lortic ceded his atelier to his two sons Marcellin and Paul, who worked together until 1892, and whom Petit commissioned to execute the present binding.
