WAGNER, Richard 1813-1883
1842. WBV 243. Largely unpublished (less than half the text appears in the Sämtliche Briefe, Vol. 2, pp. 74-75).Wagner's letter to his friends in Paris was written shortly after leaving the city in April 1842. His two and a half years there are frequently referred to as the "years of starvation," as he struggled to find success and scraped together a living as an arranger and music critic. While living in Paris he completed Rienzi and worked extensively on Der fliegende Holländer, the two operas that were key to his early success and to securing his position as Kapellmeister in Dresden.Wagner writes in his autobiography about bidding his three friends farewell: "Great, even overwhelming was our emotion at parting from our poor, faithful friends Anders, Lehrs, and Kietz. ... [Kietz] pressed upon me, despite all protestations to the contrary, yet another five-franc piece, just about the substance of his own fortune at that moment; he also stuffed a package of good French snuff for me into the side compartment of the coach in which we at last were borne away across the boulevards and to the city gates, of which we this time saw nothing, for our eyes were blinded with tears." Wagner: My Life, p. 216.Among those referred to in the letter:- Meyerbeer played a prominent role in the acceptance of Wagner's opera Rienzi for production in Dresden which, to a large extent, motivated Wagner to leave Paris for Dresden - Wilhelm Fischer (1789-1859) was a choir director and stage manager at the Hoftheater in Dresden - Ferdinand Heine (1798-1872) was an actor, theatre director, … [Click Below for Full Description]

On the 13th of Nov., 1840, I was at a place called Fulton City, on the upper waters of the Mississippi river, waiting for the descent of some steamboat in which I might take passage. About day-break the next morning a boat was hailed, and I went on board. The bustle of embarkation was hardly over before I learned that the boat was owned and principally manned by Mormons, being called Nauvoo. It moreover carried Joseph Smith, Jr., in the character of passenger; although in the reality he was chief director of the whole concern. It appeared that among the multitudes drawn together at the Mormon settlements in the west, were a number of individuals more or less acquainted with navigation.

London: Chapman and Hall, 1842. First edition, first issue, with p. [x] misnumbered xvi, etc. [12], 308; vii, [i], 306, [6, ads]pp. 2 vols. 8vo. First edition of Dickens' brilliant, unflattering, and controversial (especially in America) account of his travels in America, along with De Tocqueville's Democracy in America one of the most famous and important accounts of the new republic from a period which seemed fascinated by the new nation's experiment. Dickens was less than enchanted by what he saw, yet nevertheless dedicated his book to "...those friends of mine in America, who, giving me a welcome I must ever gratefully and proudly remember, left my judgement FREE; and who, loving their country, can bear the truth, when it is told good humouredly, and in a kind spirit" Smith II, 3.

Charles Dickens
1842. For sale is a rare First Issue of the First Edition set of American Notes for General Circulation, by Charles Dickens. Published by Chapman and Hall, London, 1842. Two Volumes. Complete. All of Smith's First Issue points here present. Bound in the publisher's original horizontally-ribbed brown cloth, with decoration in gilt to the spines, and in blind to the boards. Externally they remain in most pleasing order; the cloth and tooling exceedingly crisp and fine. Predictable extraneous rubbing and marking in places, and the odd small nick and split to the hinges; these, however, remain very firm. Internally, aside from the odd spot, they are as clean and fresh as one could hope for. Overall, this is a rare title, and possibly the cleanest we have handled. The original bindings are a joy to see, and this set could not come more highly recommended. [Attributes: First Edition]

Factory Island, Grand Bassa, [Liberia], 1842. Envelope or Cover. Very good. This three-page stampless folded letter measures 16" x 10" unfolded. It is datelined, "Factory Island, Grand Bassa / July 13th 1842". It is addressed to Benjamin Coates in Philadelphia and bears an octagonal "6" arrival handstamp. The letter is intact; however, splits are starting along several folds. Otherwise in very nice shape. Wesley Johnson was a member of the Young Men's Colonization Society of Pennsylvania and served as the governor of its Grand Bassa Colony in Liberia until his organization merged with the American Colonization Society in 1838, after which he became the Superintendent of Liberia's only high school under the patronage of the Ladies' Liberia School Association of Philadelphia. Benjamin Coates was a wealthy Philadelphia merchant, the Vice-President of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society, and a strong proponent of colonization. (For more information, see the Annual Report of the American Colonization Society for 1845 and Lapsansky-Werner's "Back to Africa: Benjamin Coates and the Colonization Movement" in the Spring 2007 edition of Quaker History.) In his letter Johnson discusses the high school: "The Ladies Liberian High School of which I am to be the supporter factotum and universal agent engrosses all my attention at present.

DORR REBELLION] DOGERTY, Roger [pseud. Effingham Lawrence?]
n.d., ca. 1842, Providence. Lengthy poem "dedicated to the three tail Bashaw of Tripoli, and all the Barbary Powers," recounting the history of the Dorr Rebellion from a Dorrite's perspective, albeit unflatteringly. The rebellion of middle class citizens of Rhode Island, led by Thomas Wilson Dorr in 1841 and 1842, turned out to be an unsuccesful bid to expand enfranchisement in the state--at the time voters were required to be white, male, and own at least $134 in property. Attributed to the Louisiana politician Effingham Lawrence, later known for holding the shortest tenure in Congress, from March 4 to March 5, 1875 (see Susah H. Graham, "Call Me a Female Politician" (2006), p. 204, citing the inscription on a copy of this poem). SABIN 80868. Octavo (23cm.); publisher's brown pictorial side-stitched wrappers; 8pp. Wrappers a bit chipped and worn at extremities with brief splitting at previous horizontal fold, light soiling to both wrappers, else a Good or better copy of a quite fragile item.

Some volumes are signed by the publisher on front endpaper. The key is lacking, and the rather sturdy glass may - or may not be - an old replacement. However, it is rare to find such a delicate juvenile item from this period so complete and relatively undamaged. A most charming item.

[Dreams]
Philadelphia: W.W. Weeks, 1842. Good.. 86pp. 12mo. Stitched; wrappers presumed lacking. Lightly dampstained throughout, lightly worn. A fun and rare little volume, comprising an alphabetical listing of terms and their interpretations as to significance in one's dreams. For example, "Roast meat. To dream you eat roast meat, signifies that you are fallen into sin and gluttony"; "Kite. To dream of your seeing a kite showeth you shall be in danger of thieves and robbers"; and other such signs of positivity such as dreaming of eyebrows, eating broth, or frogs. The dream book is followed by a list of spells and charms, and the questionable science of fortune telling with cards -- herein referred to as "cardiology." A rare work in any edition, we find that this edition is unrecorded. A single copy of the 1840 edition at AAS; a single copy of the 1841 at the University of Delaware, and two copies of the 1843 edition in OCLC. All three recorded editions include a folding plate, which is presumed lacking here.

GADE, Niels W. 1817-1890
1842. 1 page. Oblong quarto, 229 x 179 mm. Notated in black ink on pre-printed 12-stave paper. 13 measures for oboe and piano, with "Allegro mod[era]to" at head. No watermark. Inscribed by the composer "für das Album der Madme. Dreyschock mit der [?] freundlich errinerung" ["for the album of Madame Dreyschock with permission and friendly remembrance"] and signed Niels W. Gade. The oboe line is divisi in the last two measures, suggesting an excerpt from a larger orchestral work. Slightly worn, soiled, and creased; small tears at upper and right margins repaired with tape to verso. Danish composer and conductor Niels W. Gade caught the attention of Mendelssohn with his First Symphony (1842), allowing him to move to Leipzig and serve as assistant conductor of the Gewandhaus. He was appointed as Mendelssohn's successor there but was forced to leave at the outset of the Danish-Prussian Wars. Back in Copenhagen, he set out to revitalize musical life, solidifying the Musical Society (Musikforeningen) and establishing the city in the model of German cultural centers. Gade soon became the leading musical figure in Denmark and conducted a number of premieres of major works. Elisabeth Dreyschock (1832-1891) was a singer and wife of Raimund Dreyschock (1824-1869), assistant concertmaster of the Leipzig Gewandhaus. An attractive example. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Den kalligraferede titel og de 2 kalligraferede deltitler er rigt ornamenterede, den ene med en håndkoloreret tegning, alt udført af forfatteren selv. ¶ Ungdomsarbejde af Erik Bøgh. Erik Nicolai Bøgh (1822-1899), forfatter, dramatisk forfatter, teaterdirektør (Dagens Nyheder) , feuilletonist, redaktør, visedigter etc.<br>Som forfatter og visedigter havde Bøgh en udviklet evne for "Udspekulerede finter og ordleg, der ganske vist blev tilstrækkeligt beundrede og erindrede i et par menneskealdre, gjorde det ofte ud for den dybere sympati med emnerne. Størst talent havde han ubetinget for visedigtning hvor han byggede videre på den tradition han som lille havde mødt i bedstefaderens hus (P.A. Heiberg, Rahbek, Abrahamson etc). Erik Bøgh var i besiddelse af en folkelig slagfærdighed og et barokt lune der har gjort at adskillige af hans viser har holdt sig til vore dage: En lille bitte Mand, Den Skønne gaar ind i sit attende Aar, Det var en Aften paa Tivoli og Du skønne fortryllendes Kjesten."(DBL).

Choiseul Gouffier
Palais Aga dEski-Hissar/Fete Turque, anno 1842, Choiseul-Gouffier, size of the leaf: 49x33 cm.. Marie-Gabriel-Florent-Auguste de Choiseul-Gouffier (27 September 1752, Paris - 20 June 1817, Aix-la-Chapelle) was a member of the Académie Française and the Choiseul-Gouffier family, French ambassador to the Ottoman Empire from 1784 until the fall of the French monarchy and a scholar of ancient Greece. Right from his studies at the collège d'Harcourt, he had a passion for antiquities. He was particularly marked by frequent meetings with Jean-Jacques Barthélemy, author of Voyage d'Anarcharsis, who he met at the home of his cousin the duc de Choiseul. Another friend was Talleyrand, with whom he participated in court intrigues and by whom he was dissuaded from taking up the religious life. In 1776, he left for Greece on board the frigate Atalante, commanded by Joseph Bernard de Chabert, marquis of Chabert, who was interested in astronomy. With painters and architects in tow, Choiseul-Gouffier thus visited the south Peloponnese, the Cyclades and other Aegean islands, then moved on to Asia Minor. The journey had also had a political goal - explaining the situation in the Aegean between the Ottoman Empire and Imperial Russia. On his return he published the first volume of his Voyage pittoresque de la Grèce, which was a great success and facilitated his intellectual and political career. He became a member of the Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres in 1782, then a member of the Académie française in 1783. He was ambassador to Constantinople from 1784 to 1791, taking advantage of this chance to discover Greece. In Constantinople he gathered about him a semi-formal academy where gentlemen engaged in recording the beauties and treasures of the city gathered. Choiseul-Gouffier visited Athens, where he coveted the Parthenon's metopes, obtained a firman, as Elgin did later, to remove antiquities from the Acropolis, and sent to France a part of the Parthenon frieze which w

Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
John Owen, Cambridge, 1842. First edition of Longfellow's collection of poems published in support of the United States anti-slavery efforts. Small octavo, bound in full pebbled morocco by Bradstreet's with gilt titles and raised bands to the spine, inner dentelles. Presentation copy, inscribed by Longfellow on the half-title page, "Rev. R. C. Waterston from the Author." The recipient, Reverend Robert Cassie Waterston, was a noted Unitarian clergyman of Boston, the majority of his library is now housed in the Massachusetts Historical Society. In near fine condition. Bookplate. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Longfellow, very conscious of his public persona, published this collection of poems in support of the United States anti-slavery efforts even though he feared it would hurt him commercially. At the time of publication reviews were mixed. Contemporary critics, however, have noted that Longfellow's use of language and vivid imagery throughout the poems anticipated Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin which later helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War.

Zt., mit reicher Blindprägung und Vergoldung, die losen Blätter mit Goldschnitt. - Sehr schön ausgestattetes Album mit ca. 45 Einträgen aus Bärenwalde, Dölau, Greiz, Plauen, Schleiz und anderen Orten. Das Stammbuch eines Angehörigen der Thüringer Familie Schilbach, die in Greiz bis 1930 eine Wollwarenfabrikation betrieb, gegründet vom Kommerzienrat Heinrich Schilbach senior (1828-1905). Die Firmengebäude sind bis heute erhalten und zeugen von der einstigen Bedeutung der 1850 gegründeten Firma, also zur Zeit des vorliegenden Stammbuchs. Ein Eintrag hat die Großmutter des Eigners, eine Wilhelmine E. Schilbach, 1843 angefertigt, wohl Wilhelmine Ernestine Schilbach, geborene Lorenzin (1777-1859). Da sich einige Mitschüler des Eigners eingetragen haben, ist anzunehmen, daß er zur Zeit der Anlegung des Albums etwa zehn bis 15 Jahre alt gewesen ist. Laut eines maschinenschriftlichen Deckblattes soll es sich bei ihm um Wilhelm Eduard Karl Schilbach (1830-1913) handeln, Sohn des Heinrich Eduard Schilbach, geboren 1806 in Greiz.

"For the purpose of creating, in the South portions of the state particularly, an impression unfavorable to the Constitution to be submitted to the People," opponents of the regular Rhode Island government falsely claim that "a provision in the Constitution cuts off the right of fishery.
