        Etruskische und Kampanische Vasenbilder des Königlichen Museums zu Berlin

      Berlin: Verlag von G. Reimer, 1843. Imperial folio, measuring 21 x 14.5 inches, contemporary calf over marbled blue paper boards, raised bands, spine compartments decorated and lettered in gilt. Letterpress title, descriptive text, and register, followed by thirty color lithographed plates (twenty-five single-page and five double-page) numbered I-XXX, and five monochrome plates (one single-page and four double-page) lettered A-E. Small circular library label of Honoré T.P. Joseph d'Albert, 8th Duc de Luynes, affixed to base of spine. Lightest shelfwear, corners repaired, one bifolium of text embrowned (pp. 41-44), occasional faint foxing. First edition of Eduard Gerhard?'s massive survey of ancient Etruscan and Campanian vase paintings in the museums of Berlin, illustrated with thirty brilliant color lithographs in terracotta, red, and black. Head archaeologist at the Royal Museum of Berlin, Gerhard was a co-founder of the first international archaeological society, Instituto di Corrispondenza Archeologica, and a tireless cataloguer and classifier of antiquities. This volume reproduces the scenes found on ancient vases found throughout Italy, featuring the legends of Ariadne, Hercules, Achilles, Aegisthos, and the Calydonian hunt, among others; particularly moving is the image of Aeneas carrying his father Anchises out of the ruins of Troy (XXV). The oversized color plates are strikingly sharp and vivid, as though just printed. This copy from the library of Honoré d?'Albert, 8th Duc de Luynes, noted nineteenth-century French archaeologist and collector of antiquities; his illustrated catalog of his own collection, Description de Quelques Vases Peints Etrusques, Italiotes, Siciliens et Grecs, appeared in Paris in 1840. Luynes would later donate his ancient vases to the Cabinet des Médailles at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Text in German. Brunet II, 1551. A very good copy of a stunning book.

        Autograph note signed in full ("Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy) relative to the composer's incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone

      1 page. Oblong octavo (173 x 81 mm.), cut from a larger sheet. Dated Leipzig, July 14, 1843. Written in brown ink in German cursive with proper names in Latin script. In German (with translation). Relative to the engraving of the score and parts of Antigone . "I request Director Ringelhardt to have the score and parts of my music to Antigone given to Mr. Kistner for engraving." . Written during Mendelssohn's residency in Berlin, during which time he retained close ties to Leipzig and continued conducting at the Gewandhaus. He composed the incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone in 1842-1843, and Ewer in London published the first edition of the piano-vocal score in 1843; Kistner's edition did not appear until 1951. "The composer began work in 1841 on music for the choruses of Antigone. His own classical studies held him in good stead: using the translation of J.J.C. Donner, scrupulously faithful to the original metre, Mendelssohn rendered the strophes and antistrophes of Sophocles' choruses with syllabic settings for double male choir accompanied by an orchestra, occasionally resorting to a recitative-like style of declamation. The parts of the principal characters were left as spoken dialogue, or set as melodrama, with the orchestra accompanying the spoken text... Though opinion varied about Mendelssohn's music (Schumann viewed the score as ?'half opera, half tragedy?'; The Times, ?'too modern, and at the same time not modern enough?'), Antigone was widely performed and used as a model for later classical revivals. In 1845 alone, it achieved 45 performances at Covent Garden; the same year, it was satirized in Lortzing's comic opera Der Wildschütz, another sign of its popularity." R. Larry Todd in Grove online Friedrich Sebald Ringelhardt (1785-1855) was the director of the municipal theatre in Leipzig from 1832 to 1845; Carl Friedrich Kistner (1797-1844) was Mendelssohn's publisher in Leipzig.

        A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas.

      London: Chapman & Hall 1843 - First edition, first issue, Gimbel's second state (Smith's first state) with the title page printed in blue and red and "Stave I" to page [1], with much of the text corrected. Finely bound in full green calf by Riviere (Bayntun), with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting red and black morocco title labels lettered in gilt, spine compartments decorated with holly leaves in gilt, boards with decorative modern red, black, and green morocco onlay with gilt circular devices, boards and board edges ruled in gilt, gilt turn-ins, green marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Near fine, with a hint of rubbing to the spine ends, minor toning to the spine, spine cracked and holding at the title page, light staining to the bottom edges of the last few leaves of the text block, otherwise clean interior. Smith II, 4. This copy of A Christmas Carol primarily conforms with what Gimbel calls the second state of the first edition. Specifically, it has the title page printed in red and blue and dated 1843, the half-title and title page verso printed in blue, and the preferred state of page [1] with "Stave I." The text has most of the corrections found in the second and third editions, although a few points are uncorrected. A Christmas Carol is a classic Victorian novel about the cold-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who has little compassion for others, even at Christmastime. The text, which is divided into five "staves" instead of chapters to keep with A Christmas Carol's musical theme, tells the story of how Scrooge is transformed after being visited by three specters- the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future. Notably, A Christmas Carol was so popular that it inspired Dickens to write four subsequent novels, each of which is similarly marked by a strong moral and social message, the transformation of a hardened character to a more caring individual, and, of course, the holiday season. The series, now known collectively as The Christmas Books, also includes The Chimes (1845), The Cricket on the Hearth (1846), The Battle of Life (1846), and The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain (1848).

        Typed Letter Signed as President with holograph correction, on White House stationery, 1 page 4to folded sheet, Washington, D. C., October 14, 1905

      President Roosevelt writes to Judge George C. Holt (1843-1931), nominated by Roosevelt and confirmed as US District Judge in New York to discuss the politics of a district attorneyship. The President also makes reference to William Howard Taft (1857-1930) 27th US President and 10th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who served at the time as Secretary of War; Elihu Root (1845-1937) who served as Secretary of State at the time of our letter; William Henry Moody (1853-1917) Attorney General when Roosevelt wrote this letter then Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in December 1906. Roosevelt writes, "Whitney has written Secretary Taft a strong protest against Morris. If you are willing, as this district attorney-ship is a very important matter, I shall ask you and Judge Townsend to come on here early in November...when I can have Secretary Root and Attorney General Moody here...." Roosevelt crosses out "here" and hand writes, "to meet you," above. He wants to find out what Root and Moody think." Signed in a strong hand, "Theodore Roosevelt." The reference to Judge Townsend is likely to William Kneeland Townsend whom Roosevelt promoted in 1902 to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Horizontal fold.

      Lavigne, Paris 1843 - In-8 de XIX-(2)-522 pp., demi-chagrin, dos orné à nerfs, tranches dorées, garde de moire blanche (reliure de l'époque). Précieux exemplaire de lecture sur lequel André Malraux a laissé quelques mots sur le faux-titre « Le brocart des frusques de Contes d'Hoffmann. A. Malraux ». Ces mots sont tirés du roman Le Temps du mépris publié en 1935, chapitre III : « La dedans se balade un carnaval de partisans barbus, ils ont dépouillé les popes de leur chasuble et se sont en quelques heures taillés dans le brocart des frusques des contes d'Hoffman ». Malraux a longtemps refusé la réédition de son ouvrage, partagé entre le désir d'apporter un document politiquement efficace et celui de faire oeuvre de création originale. Le héros du roman, emprisonné par les nazis, utilise pour ne pas sombrer dans la folie de l'enfermement sa rêverie contrôlée, où se mêle le fantastique et la réalité très crue. « Pages parfois d'un rare beauté (.) entrechoquement de réalisme et de surréalisme, de poésie et de brutalité » (R. Jouanny, notes du Temps du Mépris, Bibliothèque de la Pléiade). Quelques annotations au crayon en marge. Premier tirage des 10 planches hors texte, et des vignettes dans le texte par Gavarni gravées sur bois par Brevière et Nouvion. Chaque gravure est protégée d'une serpente rose. Rousseurs. Vicaire, IV, 158.

        Narrative of a Voyage Round the World, Performed in her Majesty's Ship Sulphur, During the Years 1836-1842, Including Details of the Naval Operations in China, from Dec 1840 to Nov 1841

      London: Henry Colburn, 1843 2 volumes. xxxvii+[2]+387+[8 ad] pages with frontispiece, woodcuts in text and 7 steel-engraved plates; vi+[2]+474 pages with frontispiece, woodcuts in texts and 10 steel-engraved plates. Royal octavo (9¼x5½") in publisher's original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt covers decorative blind stamped. First Edition.In 1825, Edward Belcher accompanied Frederick William Beechey's expedition to the Pacific and Bering Strait as a surveyor. In 1836. he commanded a surveying ship on the north and west coasts of Africa and in the British seas. Belcher took up the work which Beechey had left unfinished on the Pacific coast of South America. He was on board the bomb vessel HMS Sulphur, which was ordered to return to England in 1839 by the Trans-Pacific route. Belcher made various observations at a number of islands which he visited, having been delayed by being dispatched to take part in the war in China in 1840. On 26 January 1841, the then Commander Belcher landed on Possession Point at the north shore Hong Kong Island and made the first British survey of Hong Kong harbor. After the war's end in 1842 he reached home and for his services was made a Knight Bachelor in the following year. He was then engaged in HMS Samarang, in surveying work in the East Indies, the Philippines, Geomun-do (Port Hamilton) and other places, until 1847. In 1852 Belcher led the last and largest Admiralty expedition to rescue Sir John Franklin. He was also to look for his former surveying officer in Hong Kong, Richard Collinson, and Robert McClure, whose ships had not been seen after entering the Bering Strait. He did a great deal of sledge exploration, rescued McClure and abandoned four of his five ships in the ice. He had five ships: Assistance (Belcher), Resolute (Henry Kellett, second mate George Nares), the steam tenders Pioneer(Sherard Osborn) and Intrepid (Leopold McClintock) and the depot ship North Star (William Pullen). Belcher and one tender were to enter Wellington Channel, where Franklin was thought to be, while Kellett was to go west to Melville Island and look for Collinson and McClure. North Star was to stay at Beechey Island as a supply base. He left the Nore in April 1850. By early winter Assistanceand Pioneer were frozen in at Northumberland Sound to the north of Wellington Channel while Resolute and Intrepid were frozen in off Melville Island (Arctic)?"the first ships this far west since William Edward Parry in 1819. A great deal of exploration was done by man-hauled sledges. In April 1853 Leopold McClintock and others left the Resolute on sledges and returned 105 days later, having covered 1,400 miles and discovered Prince Patrick Island. Another party went west and discovered Robert McClure, whose ship was frozen in at Mercy Bay. Belcher went north by sledge and found a channel at the northern tip of Devon Island, hinting that Franklin might have used it to escape to Baffin Bay. When the ice broke up that summer, he pushed his ships up Wellington Channel and became trapped again. By February 1854 Belcher was becoming increasingly worried about the safety of his ships and men. In April he ordered Kellett to abandon his ships and return by sledge to North Star. Belcher abandoned his two ships in late July. Aided by two ships that showed up at Beechey Island (Phoenix and Breadalbane), the whole party returned to England. Belcher went through a court martial, which was automatic for any captain who had lost a ship. He was exonerated, but his sword was returned to him 'without observation'. He never again received an active command. Curiously Resolute broke free of the ice and drifted all the way to Davis Strait, where it was picked up by an American whaler.Condition:Some staining and wear to covers, spines a bit faded, ends chipped and worn, rear joint of Vol. I with chipping and loss; hinges repaired at endpapers, some light foxing and occasional mostly marginal damp staining within, the three folding maps which should be loose in a pocket not present; overall good, uncommon in the original cloth.

Includes 11 autograph letters in Garcia's hand, ephemera relative to his 100th birthday celebration at the Hotel Cecil in London, and autograph letters of Joaquina Garcia (Manual I's second wife), Eugénie Garcie née Mayer (wife and pupil of Manuel II), etc.

      AUTOGRAPH LETTERS OF MANUEL GARCIA II - 1 p. Octavo. To Auber, "Directeur du Conservatoire Royal de Musique, Paris." On personal letterhead with embossed initials "EG" (Eugenie Garcia) to upper left corner. Written from 6 rue Chabanais, with date of 1843 added in another hand. With integral address leaf. Garcia apologizes for his absence from Paris, etc. - 2 pp. Octavo. Dated [London,] January 4, 1851. To the English pianist and conductor [Charles] Hallé. In French (with translation). Hallé's protegée, a certain Miss Dawson, who "has the gift of a lovely voice," has delivered what was presumably a letter of introduction from Hallé. Garcia asks if he may place his own pupil, Mathilde Graumann, in Hallé's care. "Permit me to make a request of you: knowing the powerful influence you have in the musical world in Manchester, I ask you to be so kind as to take under your protection one of my good pupils, Miss Mathilde Graumann. This young person, blessed with a remarkable talent and a distinguished appearance, has just had a great success in Leipzig and would very much like to be heard in concerts that you conduct." Creasing and short tears at folds; small tear to lower edge; minor foxing, soiling, and wear; pencil annotation to upper blank margin of recto. Garcia's "Mémoire sur la voix humaine, presented to the Académie des Sciences (Paris, 1841), was the foundation of all subsequent investigations into the voice, and his invention of the laryngoscope (1855) brought him world fame. His Traité complet de lÂ’art du chant (1840–47) remained a standard work for many years. He was a professor at the Paris Conservatoire (1847–50), and at the RAM, London (1848–95); he spent the latter half of his life in England... His pupils included Jenny Lind, Hans Hermann Nissen, Erminia Frezzolini, Julius Stockhausen, Mathilde Marchesi, Charles Bataille and Charles Santley. " James Radomski and April Fitzlyon in Grove Music Online. Soon after their inception in 1858, "the Hallé Concerts became Manchester's leading musical event; Hallé conducted them, often also appearing as piano soloist, for the remaining 37 years of his life. His programmes were adventurous and he engaged leading soloists of the day." Michael Kennedy in Grove Music Online. Mathilde Graumann married the Italian baritone and singing teacher Salvatore Marchesi in 1852, the year of her single stage appearance, as Rosina, at Bremen. "In 1854 she began to teach, in Vienna, Paris, Cologne and again Vienna. In 1881 she founded her own school of singing in Paris, where her pupils included Emma Calvé, Gabrielle Krauss, Nellie Melba, Sibyl Sanderson, Emma Eames, Katharina Klafsky, Selma Kurz, and her daughter Blanche Marchesi. She retired in 1908. She published numerous sets of vocal exercises, mostly under the title LÂ’art du chant, with various opus numbers, from the 1850s onwards, and an Ecole Marchesi: méthode de chant théorique et pratique (Paris, 1886; Eng. trans., 1896, 1903) as well as a book of memoirs." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online. - 3 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Signed in full. To an unidentified male correspondent. Dated February 22, 1868. In French.

Creased at folds; light wear; minor pencil annotation to upper left corner of first page. A rare early document of the famed Garcia family. An arrangement with Pierre François Laporte, manager of the King's Theatre in London, prevents Joaquina's young daughter, Pauline Garcia (later Pauline Viardot), from appearing in another concert unless the hall is specified. "We returned this morning at 3 o'clock, and in order not to make you wait for a reply, it is I who take up a pen for my daughter who is still sleeping... we cannot commit ourselves for any concert where the public pays, except for the concerts which are given at the little hall of the Opera, because Laporte takes half for himself, and he authorizes the Italian singers to sing only in this location. Otherwise my daughter certainly would have taken pleasure in doing something which would be agreeable to a Belgian lady, especially for Miss Meurts, but for the moment this pleasure is forbidden to her, unless you gave your concert in a particular hall! In which case Pauline would be able to sing one or two pieces. You will see." Soprano Maria Joaquina Sitches (stage name Joaquina Briones) was the second wife of celebrated tenor Manuel Garcia and mother of three of the most famous singers of the nineteenth century: Maria Malibran (1808-1836), Manuel Garcia the Younger (1805-1906), and Pauline Viardot (1821-1910), whom this letter concerns.

        UTILITARIAN, / By Eclipse / [wood engraved illustration, 4 1/4 x 6 inches, of a bridled stallion being led a groom] / This horse has been bred with an eye to the useful qualities for the road / [followed by 27 lines of text describing the horse, setting out terms for him to stand at stud, and describing his pedigree] Signed in type at the end "John H Cocke, March, 1843 "

      Winnsville, Fluvanna County, (VA): John H. Cocke, 1843. Broadside, 17 1/2 x 12 inches, employing a large bold type for the one-word first line in the head and a smaller bold type for the second line; the wood engraving is not signed. The horse stood at Cocke's Fluvanna County, Virginia, plantation, Bremo, on the James River. Not in American Imprints. Not in Hummel or his "More Virginia Broadsides." OCLC locates two copies (Virginia State Library, Virginia). A little light foxing, but a lovely example of a scarce Virginia stud broadside. (#5355) John Hartwell Cocke (1780-1866), whose ancestors first appeared in Virginia shortly after the settling of Jamestown "inherited a fortune as well as refinement and native ability from his forebears, and after attending William & Mary College (1794-99), he chose the life of a country gentleman at 'Bremo' in Fluvanna County, to which he removed about 1803 … progressive and prescient in all things, he promoted new agricultural methods, the founding of agricultural societies, the development of waterways and steam navigation, and various public improvements. During the War of 1812, [as a newly minted brigadier general] … he commanded the Virginia soldiery guarding Richmond … slavery he denounced as a curse to commonwealth and nation … a friend to popular education, he sponsored sounder primary and secondary school systems … his contribution [to the development of the University of Virginia] was subordinate only to that of of Thomas Jefferson and Joseph C. Cabell … conscientious, tenacious of opinion, boldly independent, and devoid of partisanship, sectarian or regional … he was a zealous reformer … the causes which he supported indicate him to have been one of the most remarkable Virginians of his generation in power of foresight, a pioneer of modern social reform" (DAB). For amplification of Cocke's military service, see the "War of 1812" item in this list.
