        [Op. 72]. Fidelio Oper in Zwey Aufzugen Nach dem französischen bearbeitet von F. Treitschke... Clavierauszug. Pr. 20 frs No. 1136. [Piano-vocal score]

      Bonn: N Simrock [PN] 1136, 1815. A very early edition of the piano-vocal score of the third version, issued less than a year after the first edition. Hirsch IV, 1138. Hoboken 2, 322. New Kinsky p. 450. The third version of Beethoven's only opera (originally entitled Leonore) was first performed May 23rd 1814 in Vienna. For this revision, the libretto of the first version, by Sonnleithner after Bouilly, was reworked by the poet G. F. Treitschke, and Beethoven made numerous changes to the score, including a new overture (now known as the Fidelio overture). The first version had premiered November 20th 1805; it was not a success, and Beethoven had made drastic cuts for its revival on March 29th 1806 before withdrawing the work altogether. "From the somewhat servile echoes of French and German light opera in the opening numbers, he [Beethoven] moved on to find an increasingly individual and elevated voice..." The New Grove Vol. 2, p. 383.. Oblong folio. Marbled boards with black leather title label gilt to spine. [1] (title), [2] (blank), [3] (cast list and table of contents), 4-159, [i] (blank) pp. Title lithographed. Cast, contents, and music engraved. Early numbering in manuscript ("73") in black ink to upper outer corner of title. Binding slightly worn. Minor bleeding; margins of several leaves with very light, scattered foxing and soiling. A very attractive copy overall.

        Oficio de la Semana Santa

      [Madrid?]: Imprenta del Norte, 1815. First edition thus. 10 vols. in 6, quartos [23.5 x 16.5 cm]. Beautifully printed, all in Latin with occasional liturgical directions in Spanish, of the masses for Holy Week, incl. Palm Sunday. The size of the lettering is large enough that the books must have been for altar use by the priest-celebrant. Palau [199404] records the set but notes that he had not seen it complete; he gives the location of the printers as Madrid, but there is no indication of this on the title-pages; a bookseller's ticket from Barcelona is pasted in one volume. OCLC records only one complete set, in the National Lbrary of Spain, and only one other partial set in a German library: none have appeared at auction. The volumes are in impeccable condition, fresh and clean, in a superb period marbled calf binding with gilt tooling, spines with red leather title labels and other gilt tooling. Fine set of this quite rare imprint.

        The Heroine, Or Adventures of Cherubina, by.

      London: Printed For Henry Colburn. 1815. - In three volumes. Third edition. (First published in 1813 as The Heroine, Or Adventures of a Fair Romance Reader.) Tall 12mo., cont. half calf, marble boards, leather spine labels, (xx), (21)-220; (ii), (1)-240; (ii), 252pp. Summers p.354 and Wolff 316 citing the first edition, Not in Sadleir. Bookplate on front pastedowns o/w a fine copy. "Inevitably, the ludicrous excesses of Gothic fiction invited satire. In contrast to Jane Austen's subtle ridicule of Gothic readers and Radcliffean heroines in "Northanger Abbey," Barrett's "The Heroine" is a merciless frontal assault on every form of Gothic nonsense from the delicate palpitations of Mrs. Radcliffe and her school to the crude sensationalism of the Gothic bluebookers and horror hacks. What Henry Fielding had accomplished in debunking the moral seriousness of Richardson, Barrett would do to the supernumerary horrors of the Gothic novelists. Barrett's sense of farce is vitriolic, his narrative method, brutal and corrosive mockery, his avowed purpose, the extermination of the Gothic virus itself. Yet, "The Heroine" is more than simply an extended sneer at 'the Salinas, Evelinas and Malvinas who faint and blush and weep through four half-bound octavos.' This is coherent parody in the best Aristophanic tradition. It sets out to laugh an audience back into its senses and the burlesque Gothic is so good as to be almost indistinguishable from the real Gothic itself at many points. Not a single feature of Gothic absurdity evades Barrett's irate eye, from wild rhetoric to place and character names. (Frank: First Gothics p. 21-22) Eaton Stannard Barrett [1786-1820] Irish writer, author of poetry, political and other satirical work. Born in Navan (though some sources give Cork) educated at Wandsworth near London where he was considered "something of a genius for writing and putting on a play." While he trained to be a lawyer he was not called to the Bar, but instead became a literary and political journalist. In 1807 using the pseudonym "Polypus" he published All the Talents: A Satirical Poem a "verse satire on the Whig-dominated government. The poem went through 19 editions in a year and Barrett followed it with three more political satires. Later Barrett turned to satire on the culture of the "decadent upper classes." In 1811 the Minerva Press published his "The Metropolis; Or A Cure for Gaming." In 1813 he published the above work as "The Heroine; or Adventures of a Fair Romance Reader" which was revised the next year under the title above and went into several editions.

Altogether GOOD CONDITION. +++ . \" As soon as he finished his medical studies in 1812, the Englishman Henry Holland (1788-1873) started on a journey lasting several months, the account of which he later published, with twelve engravings based on his own drawings. In his prologue, he emphasizes that he will not only describe archaeological sites and monuments, but also focus on the current situation in the country, because: The interest which the world now takes in Greece, refers not merely to ancient times, but regards also the future condition of a people who are again resuming a national character, and whom time and political changes may again raise to perfect independence. Holland sailed from Sicily to Zacynthos, where he was able to collect demographic and economic information on the rest of the Ionian Islands as well. When he reached the territory of Ali Pasha, he went first to Arta and then stayed for some time in Giannina. There, as a physician, he had the opportunity to become well acquainted with the infamous Pasha’s contradictory personality and to write on his administrative abilities. Holland was impressed too by the commercial and intellectual dynamism of Giannina’s inhabitants. He then continued on to Thessaly, visiting the monastic community at Meteora and the town of Tyrnavos. While in Larissa, he became acquainted with the Greek doctor, erudite and philosopher Ioannis Vilaras, whom he admired. After a short visit to Ambelakia, Holland reached Thessalonica, and wrote on life and commerce in that populous city. He then travelled to the Sporades islands, and subsequently went to Lamia and Thermopylae. He spent Christmas of that year in Delphi. Then, after visiting Livadeia, where he stayed in the home of Logothetis, a wealthy man of the community, he ended up in Athens, where he stayed for a month. In continuation, in the winter of 1813, Holland travelled to the Peloponnese (Corinth, Nemea, Mycenae, Argos, Tripolis, Patras). He then moved northwards. In Preveza he met with Ali Pasha once more and then reached devastated Souli. He visited various towns in Albania (Delvinaki, Argyrocastro (Gjirokastër), Tepeleni, Apollonia, Himara, Buthrotum (Butrint) and Aulona (Vlorë). Among other features of his chronicle, of special interest are the descriptions of the church of St Demetrios in Thessalonica, Dion, Lamia and Hydra, all quite rare for the era, as well as Holland’s most interesting observations on Athens. Holland then returned to England. In 1840 he became physician to the King. He travelled extensively in Europe and visited America six times. Holland died on his eighty-sixth birthday. The descriptions of the natural landscape, the numerical data he provides on various populations and their commercial and economic activities, and above all his capacity for insightful observation make Holland one of the most important travellers in the years that preceded the Greek Revolution.(from Travelogues/Travellers\'views).+++ 21,3 x 27,3 cm, 1,7 kg. +++ Stichwörter/Key -words: Reisebericht Griechenland Greece Travel account archeology Archäologie Antike Ionische Inseln Albanien Thessalien Mazedonien Versand D: 5,50 EUR

While he is remembered mostly for his music, he also wrote books on astronomy, religion and geometry. RARE.

Die beiden Kupfertafeln zeigen ein Porträt des Ritters und eine Ansicht der Burg von Jagsthausen, die beiden Aquatinten veranschaulichen die Hand und ihre kunstvolle Mechanik. Mechel, der den Auftrag hatte, die Hand zu zeichnen, zerlegte diese dazu, war aber später nicht mehr in der Lage, sie richtig zusammenzusetzen, ein Finger blieb steif und konnte nicht mehr repariert werden. - Kleiner Namensstempel auf Umschlag.

        The Works.

      London: John Murray,, 1815-9. 7 volumes, small octavos (155 × 93 mm). Contemporary tree calf, spines in compartments with gilt rules and titles direct, speckled edges. Half titles in volumes 1-6. Spines a little darkened, extremities rubbed, cracking to joints but all holding, some minor spotting within but on the whole a very good set. First editions of Byron's first collected works complete as published up until 1819 (the seventh volume here completing Childe Harold's Pilgrimage). The first four volumes were printed together with "In Four Volumes" to their title pages in 1815, the fifth volume in 1817 with the title page amended "In Five Volumes", the sixth in 1818 amended "In Five Volumes", and the seventh in 1819 but without like amendment. It is very unusual to have sets in contemporary bindings comprising each instalment of Murray's ever-growing Works of Lord Byron present each in its first printing thus. This set is handsomely presented in a contemporary binding of full tree calf, and has in each volume the contemporary armorial bookplates of the Scottish Halkett family of Pitfirrane Castle. These volumes contain, in order: Childe Harold's Pilgrimage: Cantos 1 and 2; The Giaour, The Bride of Abydos; The Corsair, Lara; Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte, Poems (including "Lines inscribed upon a cup formed from a skull"), Hebrew Melodies (including "She walks in beauty" and "The destruction of Semnacherib"); The Siege of Corinth, Parisina, Poems (including "Stanzas for Music"); The Prisoner of Chillon, Manfred , The Lament of Tasso; and Childe Harold's pilgrimage: Cantos 3 and 4.
