SPOHR, Louis 1784-1859
Leipzig: Bureau de Musique de C.F. Peters [PN 1864], [1825]. Folio. Disbound. Violino primo: 1f. (title), [i] (blank), 4-13, [i] (blank) pp.; Violino secondo: [1] (blank), 2-7, [i] (blank) pp.; Viola: [1] (blank), 2-7, [i] (blank) pp.; Violoncello: [1] (blank), 2-7, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Somewhat browned and foxed; fingering in pencil to Violino primo part; "8" in contemporary manuscript in ink to upper right corner of title. First Edition. Göthel p. 118. "The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled Quatuor brillant), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online. Item #28114. [Attributes: First Edition]

BUSBY, James.
Australia: R. Howe, Government Printer, 1825. Small quarto, with a folding table, some light browning; a fine copy, complete with the errata leaf, in contemporary polished half-calf over marbled boards, bumped, sympathetically rebacked, with most of the original spine laid down, lettered and decorated in gilt. Fine copy of the iconic work on Australian wine, in the preferred "quarto" format. Only very rarely seen on the market: this is the first book on Australian wine, the first book on wine to be published in Australia and the first book to carry the imprint "Australia" on the title page. This copy corresponds with the special issue in quarto format on thicker paper identified by the bibliographer Ferguson - though it has been convincingly argued that the difference between copies is not so much a question of issue as of the particular materials, especially paper, available to the publisher at the time. By 1825 the publishing industry in Sydney was mature but still slight of build, and certainly still subject to the vagaries of supply.James Busby, the father of Australian viticulture, was born in Scotland in 1801; he emigrated to New South Wales in 1824 after visiting the Bordeaux region of France where he studied methods of viticulture. He published his Treatise very shortly after his arrival in the colony. Five years later he published his Manual of Plain Directions that was aimed at small settlers whom he hoped would be able to "enjoy their daily bottle of wine, the produce of their own farms". Busby received a grant on the upper Hunter River, which he named "Kirkton", … [Click Below for Full Description]
