LISZT, Franz 1881-1886
1845. Octavo. 2 pp. of a bifolium. In black ink. Addressed to "Hochgeehrter Herr," almost certainly the German tenor Heinrich Vogl (1845-1900) who, together with his wife, soprano Therese Vogl (1845-1921), became famous for their performances of Wagner's works. Liszt is quite upset about Vogl cancelling his performances of Wagner's Tristan. He asks if it would be possible for Vogl and his wife to come to Weimar to perform this "wondrous work" before the end of the current season, June 20th to June 24th, and mentions that Baron Loën would also like him to do so. Finally, Liszt asks that Vogl kindly respond to his letter. Slightly worn and soiled; creased at folds; partially separated at central fold. In very good condition overall. Apparently unpublished. In a letter Liszt wrote to Adelheide von Schorn in Rome on May 17th, he recounts that Tristan was to be performed in Weimar on May 15th and 19th. The Vogls did not come to Weimar for these performances but, rather, remained in Munich, presumably due to the death of their child. See La Mara (English): Vol. II, no. 167. In a letter dated May 24th, Liszt wrote to Carl Gille in Jena, reporting that the Vogls had replied to the present letter explaining that they would not be able to get a leave of absence in late June and that their performances in Weimar would have to be postponed until the next season. See Williams: Franz Liszt Selected Letters, no. 728.

So besuchte er Nordamerika, den Nahen Osten und zahlreiche europäische Länder. - Mit Ansichten v.

Rothbart Georg
Johann Adam Stein, Nürnberg, 1845. Covers minimally soiled and rubbed, some foxing on the paper. Rothbart, Georg. Das Luther-Zimmer, eines der Pracht-Zimmer in dem nach Director Carl Heideloffs Angabe von dem Architecten Carl Görgel wiederhergestellten Fürstenbau auf der Veste Coburg. - La Chambre de Luther au vieux Chateau de Cobourg, une des Chambres de Parade des anciennes Batisses princiers récemment restaurées à fond. Nürnberg, J. A. Stein, 1845. (6) pages title and foreword by Heideloff, 5 pages French and German text. With 5 engraved plates after G. Rothbart with the original tissue guards. Stitched as issued in the publisher's grey cardboard portfolio with printed label on front cover. Paste-downs covered with reddish paper. Oblong folio (300 x 390 mm). Covers minimally soiled and rubbed. First and only edition. A highly interesting museological plate book documenting the restoration efforts and documentation by the artists and architects Heideloff, Görgel and Rothbart at the ducal structure in the fortress of the Veste Coburg between 1837 and 1864. The centre of their rebuilding project was the so-called Reformation- or Luther-room, to commemorate Martin Luther's stay there in 1530. Completely adorned in neo-Gothic style, the whole room was put on the stage as an authentic piece of interior decoration as seen by Luther himself. Only in the beginning of the 20th century with changing standards in museology the whole structure was rebuilt and the book now can be qualified as an original source document for the study of art history and museology.

Charles Dickens
Chapman and Hall, 1845. I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world. Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo! Here we offer an absolutely gorgeous, matching, finely-bound set of early and first editions of Charles Dickens' classic Christmas books, beginning with perhaps the most wonderful novel ever written, A Christmas Carol In Prose (Being a Ghost Story of Christmas), and proceeding through The Cricket on the Hearth, A Fairy Tale of Home; The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In; The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain, a Fancy for Christmastime; and The Battle of Life, A Love Story. Each novel is of the original London publisher Dickens engaged and each includes all the original pages and illustrations, including Christmas Carol's 4 hand-colored plates. Christmas Carol is an 1845 stated 12th "edition" (a term that was then used the way "print run" would later be used) published by Chapman and Hall; Cricket is an 1846 stated 16th edition by Bradbury and Evans; Chimes is a stated 1845 10th edition, by Chapman and Hall; Haunted Man is an 1848 first edition by Bradbury and Evans; and Battle is an 1846 first edition by Bradbury and Evans. The set is finely-bound in 3/4 calfskin over marbled boards that are gilt-impressed and ribbed on the spine, with publishing date noted at the base, maroon placeholding ribbon, and gilt going all the way around the text blocks (to keep dust out), marbled endpages, and each bo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leopardi, Giacomo
Firenze, Felice Le Monnier, 1845 - 1846, Collezione completa delle Opere in prima edizione. Edizione originale de «La Ginestra», de «Il tramonto della Luna» e del «Saggio sopra gli errori popolari degli antichi». Alcuni fascicoli con leggere bruniture, nel complesso esemplari più che buoni, in barbe. Al frontespizio di ciascun volume timbretto «Ing. A. Verga» e firma del possessore. L’edizione delle opere di Leopardi ebbe immediato successo, tanto che i primi due volumi furono subito ristampati in tirature successive e sono oggi assai rari in prima edizione. In particolare, poi, al primo volume, che accoglie i «Canti», appaiono in edizione originale (i.e. in prima stampa assoluta) «La Ginestra» e «Il tramonto della Luna», scritte dal poeta nel 1836, poco prima di morire. L’edizione fu curata da Antonio Ranieri «secondo l’ultimo intendimento dell’autore»: in particolare, il testo dei «Canti» è dato a partire dall’esemplare Starita 1835 su cui Leopardi lavorò assiduamente, inserendo numerose modifiche e correzioni, fino agli ultimi istanti della sua vita. E anche la collocazione dei due inediti, alla fine della raccolta, rispecchierebbe le intenzioni del poeta. La forma attuale del libro, quella che tutti conosciamo, si è dunque cristallizzata qui per la prima volta. -- Tipograficamente identici ai primi due, nel 1846 uscirono il terzo e il quarto volume delle «Opere». Al terzo volume compaiono in prima edizione gli «Studi filologici», un’esaustiva raccolta degli scritti leopardiani di argomento filologico curati da Pellegrini e Giordani, in cui il poeta si misura con i class … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIXON, Frederick Robert
Adelaide: F.R. Nixon, 1845. In later wrappers, very good condition. Oblong quarto, 12 original full page etchings; attractively bound into later wrappers and housed in a solander case by Aquarius. Nixon's rare suite of twelve etchings: the very first South Australian illustrated book to have been published. These simple and delicate views depict an Adelaide very much in its infancy. Wide unsealed streets are almost deserted save for small clusters of local Aboriginal people and the odd settler. This series of views provides important documentation of the first buildings and the complexion of the city before the sweeping changes brought about by the gold rush. Frederick Robert Nixon (c.1817-1860) was appointed an assistant surveyor for South Australia in 1837 and in 1841 became superintendent of emigrant working parties. He was a self-taught artist and whilst in Adelaide became well known as a draughtsman. He also taught himself etching techniques which he used to self-publish this Twelve Views in Adelaide and its Vicinity in 1845: 'Of considerable historic interest today, the twelve views reveal skill in composition and an understanding of etching' (Frank Cusack in J. Kerr (ed.) Dictionary of Australian Artists). The suite of twelve etchings cost one guinea and was favourably received by the local press: 'he deserves the greatest credit for his industry, perseverance, and skill... the etchings are superior as works of art, and accurately as well as pleasingly depict the scenes which they represent' (South Australian). Nixon also appears to have tried to market his book i … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FRENCH COURT].
468 pp.One of the earliest (fourth?) and rarest editions, with a false imprint (but probably the second edition by the original publisher), of an infamous collection of memoires or reputed memoires from the reign of King Henri III of France, and an uncommonly ferocious satire of the manners and mores of the court and especially of Henri III and his mother Catherine de Medici, including rather sordid details. The discourse on Catherine de Medici is a violent pamphlet against the Queen, accused of all evils, including responsibility for the religious wars. It may have influenced Alexandre Dumas's portrayal of some of these events and royal family members in La Reine Margot (1845), which centres on the Saint Bartholomew's Day massacre of 1572, two years before Henri III ascended the throne.Jean Elzevier in Leiden produced the first edition in 1660, using for the first time the false imprint “Cologne, Pierre Marteau” to hide his own identity and that of the author(s) of this “chronique scandaleuse”. This and the other editions discussed here are in 12mo format and the others copy “Cologne” and “Pierre Marteau” from the false imprint of the first edition. Two pirated editions appeared already in 1660 (if their dates are not false): Willems attributes one to Adriaan Vlacq in The Hague and Rahir the other to Jan Janssonius in Amsterdam. Two more appeared dated 1662. Definitive attributions of all these editions to their printers will require more detailed typographic analysis. The present edition is not in Willems or Rahir and we have located only 7 other copies, rarer than the o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Second English edition, published a year after the Harper and Wiley editions. An account of the The Texan Santa Fe Expedition, a commercial and military expedition to secure the Republic of Texas's claims to parts of Northern New Mexico for Texas in 1841.

Lamar, in an attempt to gain control over the lucrative Santa Fe Trail and further develop the trade links between Texas and New Mexico. The expedition proved to be a bit of a disaster, with the Texans taken prisoner and relations between the United States and Mexico deteriorating. Kendall was an observer for a New Orleans newspaper.
