Brahms, Johannes. (1833-1897) & Speyer, Edward. (1839-1934)
A rare document in the history of classical music: the surviving 1811 program of the Napoleon Festival in Erfurt, formerly owned and treasured by Johannes Brahms, and presented by the composer to his friend Edward Speyer on October 3, 1895. The program bears Brahms' inscription and signature in ink along the full height of the left margin: "Herrn Edward Speyer zur frdl. Erinnerung an Meiningen 1895 (auch ein Musik- und ein Napoleon-fest! | Johannes Brahms." (To Mr. Edward Speyer, in friendly remembrance of Meiningen 1895--itself a music and Napoleon festival! Johannes Brahms.) The program gives the full concert program on page one, followed by three pages providing the details of the performers, including directors, instrumental soloists and orchestra players, soloist singers and chorus members. Paper, watermark "B", 4 pages, single bifolium, 8.75 x 14.25 inches (22.5 x 36.5 cm) folded. Foxed and stains, creasing with small tears at edges, but autograph very bright and clear and otherwise in fine condition. We have not traced any other examples of this program appearing in the trade or in any library holdings. The present copy, enhanced by the extraordinary inscription, is a great rarity indeed. The circumstances of the present inscription, following Brahms' attendance at a music festival sponsored by the Duke of Meiningen, where the senior composer's music was performed alongside that of Bach and Beethoven, are described by Max Kalbeck, friend and biographer of the composer:We owe a particularly vivid picture of the Meiningen days, as reflected in the person of the celebri … [Click Below for Full Description]

All edges gilt. First edition of a very fine hand-coloured copy. this work on Chinese art and costume "originated in the activities of Henri Leonard Bertin, secretary of state, 1762-1780, who had responsibility for the Comagnie des Indes and French Jesuits in Peking. He was a generous supporter of the Jesuits and got two Chinese converts to take science courses in France. On return to China, they produced some 400 drawings of arts and crafts, thus moving outside the usual missionary interests" (Lust). Breton de la Martiniere's work is much sought after on account of the quantity and quality of its beautiful illustrations. This is one of the rare copies with all the plates hand-coloured. The 108 hand-coloured plates vibrantly record the broad range of Chinese society, especially tradesmen. Particularly interesting are the numerous depictions of itinerant salesmen and craftsmen with ingenious methods of transporting their inventories and machinery. Unfortunately not in very good condition and incomplete, but the 70 coloured plates are magnificent!.

MILITARIA - JAVA]. [TAYLOR, Thomas William?].
1811. 2 ll with manuscript text, 36 blank ll, [1], IV, 64 pp, 3 blank ll, 16 ll with manuscript text, 193 blank ll.Only copy located of the first (and only separately published) edition of a poem printed in Kolkata, celebrating the British Army’s invasion of Java in 1811The anonymously published account was written by Captain Thomas William Taylor (1782-1854), who witnessed the attack. He dedicated the present copy in a manuscript inscription to his "friend and cousin" Arthur Howe Holdsworth (1780-1860), an English merchant and politician. A manuscript map of Batavia, Weltevreden and surroundings with notes was tipped in before the title-page, titled "Plan for squire Holdsworth to read the Gazette by P.T." and in a different hand in pencil "Col. P. Taylor". The map was drawn after the descriptions in the printed text and as the notes suggest made by Taylor for the dedicatee Holdsworth.The present copy was rebound slightly later, in between 144 blank leaves, on which a great amount of manuscript additions were made by an unknown, slighlty later hand. These additions include 4 poems about other British battles: a poem about William Wallace (ca. 1272 - 1305) who commanded the Scottish against the British in the First Scottish War of Independence; a vow of guerrilla fighters; a poem about the Whiteboys (a secret Irish organisation: some members joined the 1798 rebellion against the British) and a laudatory poem about Russia’s resistance to Napoleon’s 1812 invasion.We have located no other copy: it is not in the online catalogues of the National Library or the University Library … [Click Below for Full Description]

Königliche Hoheit, da meine angeborene Liebe zum Seewesen, die Sie nicht tadeln, mich immer in neue Bedrängnisse versezt. Ein Mann der beiden Königen sehr angenehm war und, außer mehreren Übersetzungen römischer Dichter auch (mit Encke's Hülfe) ein recht nüzliches astronomisches Wörterbuch [1841-48] herausgegeben hat, der Postdirector [Joseph Emil] Nürnberger [1779-1848] zu Landsberg [a. d.

Es hat derselbe, in der heißen Sehnsucht einmal durch die Gnade Ew. Kön. Hoheit im Seedienst gebraucht werden zu können, für sich nautische Astronomie studirt; er besizt dabei 3 lebende Sprachen, französisch, englisch und italienisch und hat eine sehr sorgfältige Erziehung genossen. Vieljährige Freundschaft mit dem Vater lässt mich die Bitte wagen, dass Ew. Königl.

Geglättetes Leder d. Zt. mit Rückenvergoldung, Deckelfileten und Goldschnitt Mit vielen Einträgen reich gefülltes, über fast zwei Jahrzehnte geführtes Stammbuch, in den Beigaben eher nüchtern, aber interessant durch die teils auch in Osteuropa erfolgten Einträge. Der Eigner war wohl ein Kaufmann, der auf seinen Geschäftsreisen vielerlei Bekanntschaften, darunter nicht wenige von Damen, gemacht hat. Der wohl interessanteste Beitrag darunter stammt indessen von dem kaum bekannten Laienkupferstecher Gustav Zocher, der ein Freund von Richard Wagners Vater, Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Wagner (1770-1813), und von Richard Wagners älterem Bruder Albert (1799-1874) gewesen ist. Zochers Eintragung ist am 13. August 1801 in Leipzig erfolgt, und als Beigabe hat er einen seiner sehr seltenen Kupferstiche in das Album montiert. Er zeigt die Reste einer alten Burganlage. Zocher, geboren 1776 als Sohn eines Goldstickers, führte in Leipzig ein Handelsgeschäft und übte die Kupferstecherei nur zum Zeitvertreib aus. Weiterhin eingetragen haben sich der Fabrikant Leopold Seitter aus Brünn, ein Friedrich Bernhard Stolberg aus Leipzig, Mitglieder der Familie Hähnel, vielleicht die Familie, aus der die berühmte Sängerin Amalie Hähnel (1807-1849) hervorgegangen ist, sowie Mitglieder der verschwägerten Familien Ruppert und Kleinert aus Leipzig.

With 4 engraved frontispieces and 104 other engraved plates (8 folding), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand. Contemporary richly gold-tooled dark green grained morocco, gold-tooled spine, boards, board edges and turn-ins, gilt edges, with the name of the binder on spine: R.P. CHILLIAT. XXXVI, 144; [4], 172; 188; [4], 220; [4], XXIII, 236; [4], 234, [4] pp. A rare complete set of Breton's lively description of China during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (ruled 1736-1795), with 108 beautifully coloured illustration plates. The first four volumes were originally published alone in 1811 and the last two volumes added as a supplement in 1812. The images cover the whole range of Chinese society. They show military, ceremonial and traditional costumes, weaponry, means of transport, arts and crafts, implements, toys and other objects of everyday life, but also means of punishment and execution. The majority of the plates were based on original drawings in the private collection of the French Secretary of State Henri Léonard Jean Baptiste Bertin (1719-1792).

The book is bound in contemporary calf, red leather label which reads "Der weg zu Christo"; some light rubbing to binding; paper stock is brown with age, fore edges a bit fragile in places; a very good copy.First American edition, originally printed in Goerlitz, Germany in 1624. This American edition of Boehme's mystical text was printed at the Ephrata Cloister by Jacob Ruth and is one of only two titles produced by this printer at the Cloister press. K.J.R. Arndt gives Ruth's dates as 1794-1878 but provides no other information about the biography of the printer and his relationship to Ephrata.This question is of interest because the engraved images in this book are all unsigned and are apparently re-engravings of plates form an earlier edition published anonymously in Leiden in 1730, which contains five plates. If Ruth re-engraved these plates it demonstrates a very sophisticated skill with the burin and familiarity with the creation of fine lines, tonality, and readily recognizable symbols. The engravings are not only fine work but early examples of the art form produced in the Pennsylvania German community of the period.Shaw & Shoemaker 22416.

Edward Jenner
1811. JENNER, EDWARD Inventor of the smallpox vaccine. 4 page letter entirely in his hand. April 8th, 1811. Important content on how his smallpox vaccines saved millions of lives around the world. Edward Jenner's invention of his vaccine is arguably the most significant contribution ever made in the history of medicine. Jenner created a new and safe way to prevent the spread of the disease through vaccination by demonstrating that, by intentionally infecting people with the relatively mild cowpox, it was possible to achieve immunity to the deadly smallpox virus. Although his discovery was met with resistance as well as acclaim, Jenner persevered, fighting vigorously for the cause of vaccination throughout his life. Jenner's confidence in his smallpox vaccine has certainly been vindicated posthumously. In the twentieth century alone smallpox killed more than 300 million people, three times the number of deaths from all the century's wars combined. Jenner may have saved more human lives than any other person in history. Jenner writes in his hand: "The advantages derived from the universal adoption of Vaccination throughout the Company's Settlements in India are represented to me as immense. Millions have been already saved from an untimely grave who would have been sent there by the ravages of the Smallpox." Jenner writes of his goal "to spread Vaccination over the Globe." India was in dire need of Jenner's vaccine. The number of smallpox cases in India represented over half the total cases in the whole world. Before millions of lives could be saved, many hurdl … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Broadside)
Ephrata: Samuel Baumann, 1811. Broadside. 405 x 330 mm., (16 x 13 inches). Watermark "A K" for Abraham Keller. Title and two columns of text in German, with a central woodcut image of Adam and Eve, the Tree of Knowledge and the Serpent; all enclosed with a typographical border. Folded; with some paper repair to upper right corner and at the margin of the center fold; the entire broadside expertly backed with Japanese paper. 'Adam and Eve' broadsides were among the most popular of all Pennsylvania German broadsides. They were printed by many printers in numerous editions, but primarily in German. Walter Boyer attributed the popularity of 'Adam and Eve' broadsides to the quality of the graphic image, the broadsides wide distribution and its expression of Christian values." This Ephrata printing by Samuel Bauman is the earliest example of the 'Adam and Eve' broadside and includes all the elements that were used in later examples printed by other Pennsylvania German printers. This includes the sixteen-stanza poem printed in two columns, the central woodcut of Adam and Eve, the use of fig leaves to cover the genitalia of both figures, and the serpent offering the apple to Eve. Research by Alfred L. Shoemaker has identified twenty-nine separate issues of this form of broadside by fourteen different printers. In Walter Boyer's essay "Adam und Eve im Paradies" he describes the Adam and Eve broadside printed by Samuel Baumann in 1811. At the base of the woodblock the initial "R & W S" are carved into the block and Boyer makes the reasonable assumption that they … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Given the strong Brazilian interest in Smith's work one can better understand why the first Portuguese translation of Wealth of Nations appeared during 1811-12 i Rio de Janeiro. This is a partial translation, with the omission of Book V and half of Books I and IV. The translator's preface makes clear that Wealth of Nations was translated and studied as a doctrinal blueprint, to promote the liberalisation of economic relations between Portugal and her most important colony, fostering in this way the independent development of the Brazilian economy."

London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Reese, Orme, and Brown, 1811. First trade edition, with substantial additions. 4to, modern brown quarter morocco period style, marbled paper boards, dark brown morocco spine label, gilt rules and lettering. Frontis portrait engraved by Caroline Watson after a miniature by John Comerford, after a portrait by George Romney. The first trade edition of the work of Irish poet Mary Tighe (1772-1810), whose popular poem Psyche, or the Legend of Love, was privately printed in an edition of 50 copies in 1805 and circulated in fair copy manuscriipts. She died in 1810, and this volume was posthumously compiled and edited, probably by her husband Henry Tighe, with the addition of over 35 previously unpublished poems, including 20 sonnets. Psyche, an allegorical poem in Spenserian stanzas based on the story of Cupid and Psyche, had demonstrable influence on the Romantics. This edition contains the fine engraved frontis portrait by Caroline Watson (1761-1814) after the portrait by Romney. Some light foxing; frontis portrait offset on the title-page; fine copy.
