        Autograph letter signed "G. Verdi" to an unidentifed correspondent

      1 page of a bifolium. Small octavo (ca. 158 x 99 mm.). N.d. [Paris, mid-late 1850s?]. On stationery with Verdi's monogram ("G V") embossed at head. In French (with translation). "I mustn't get involved in the Spezia affair. It is therefore impossible for me to deliver the other letter to Royer... " Slightly worn and soiled; creased at central fold and very slightly overall. Verdi is undoubtedly referring to Maria Spezia-Aldighieri (1828-1907), who sang Violetta in the triumphal 1854 production of La Traviata at the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice. (The disastrous première, which featured Fanny Salvini-Donatelli as Violetta, had taken place at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice on March 6, 1853). Spezia later reprised the role at the Théâtre-Italien in Paris, La Scala, and other Italian theatres. French theatre manager and librettist Alphonse Royer (1803-1875) was the director of the Paris Opéra from 1856 until 1862, when he was appointed Inspecteur-général des beaux-arts. On September 22, 1856, Verdi signed a contract with the Paris Opéra to produce a French adaptation of Il Trovatore (Le Trouvère). He resided in Paris throughout the autumn until shortly after the première of Le Trouvère at the Opéra on January 12, 1857. At the same time Spezia was being considered for performances in Paris. It is thus plausible that Verdi wrote the present letter during this Parisian sojourn.

Bis 1856 waren Lassalle und die "Rote Gräfin" ein Paar, blieben aber auch danach in engem Kontakt, u. a. trafen sie sich 1862 mit Garibaldi. Sophie von Hatzfeldt wurde zwei Jahre später zur Nachlassverwalterin des bei einem Duells tödlich verletzten Ferdinand Lassalles. - Umschlag fleckig.

        De la Democratie en Amerique (Presentation copy)

      Pagnerre, Paris 1850 - Revised, corrected and augmented with a comparative examination of democracy in the United States and Switzerland, and an appendix. Text in French. Inscribed by the author: "à Mr. Courbis offert par l'auteur AT." Bound in a contemporary French binding of green quarter morocco over paper boards, marbled end-papers. Two volumes bound together in one, collating: viii, 512; viii, 476. Binding with slight chipping at the head of the spine, otherwise in excellent condition. Besides the present example, only one other inscribed copy of this 1850 revised edition can be found in the auction record, selling for 11,875 euro in 2013.De Tocqueville's seminal work on American government, first printed the same year in Paris. De Tocqueville, a French aristocrat, visited America between 1831 and 1832, ostensibly to study the penal system, although his interest was considerably broader. It seems logical that France would look to America as a beacon of hope for a successful democracy. After France embraced the goals of equality and democracy in 1789 at the start of the French Revolution, it found itself first in a dictatorship under Napoleon and then in one constitutional monarchy after another during the years following. De Tocqueville's astute observation of several aspects of American society and culture provides an invaluable lens of foreign perspective on our young nation's political growth. Democracy in America was an immediate and sustained success. Almost from the beginning it enjoyed the reputation of being the most acute and perceptive discussion of the political and social life of the United States ever published. Whether perceived as a textbook of American political institutions, an investigation of society and culture, a probing of the psyche of the United States, or a study of the actions of modern democratic society, the book has maintained its place high within the pantheon of political writing. "No better study of a nation's institutions and culture than Tocqueville's Democracy in America has ever been written by a foreign observer; none perhaps as good."

        A List of Persons from Nantucket Now in California, Or on Their Way Thither; Including the Names of the Vessels in which They Sailed, the Time of Sailing, and of Their Arrival There; Also Persons Returned, etc.

      Jethro C. Brock, Nantucket 1850 - First edition. 24 pp; ad printed on inside front wrapper. 24mo (4 x 2 5/8 inches). An important and rarely encountered work documenting the migration from the whaling center of Nantucket to the gold fields of California during the year 1849. Eberstadt described it as, "An exceedingly rare work, of which no other copy has passed through our hands. Contains considerable contemporary data of value to a study of the gold rush and the vast emigration of 1849. Among the prominent persons recorded are the pioneer editor Ferdinand C. Ewer, and Dr. C. F. Winslow. There is also a list of individuals who died en route to California and in the mines" (Eberstadt). In total information on 650 individuals is recorded. "The News of gold being discovered in California reached Nantucket's shores in late 1848. There, as in the rest of the country, the lure of riches took a strong hold. By the end of 1849, more than five hundred Nantucket men had ventured West to seek their fortunes. The toll on the whaling industry, both for the island and on the whole, was marked. More than forty-two whaleships were withdrawn from the industry for the specific purpose of being refitted to carry goods and passengers to the goldfields. In addition, numerous whaleships in pursuit of oil were lured away by gold and many men deserted their vessels midway through the voyage to seek gold" (Downey, "Consequences of California Mania," Historic Nantucket, Vol 48, no. 3, p. 25-26).

        The Vernon Gallery of British Art - Volume 1 With 50 + signatures

      Published for the Proprieters. National Gallery, London. Printed by Bradbury and Evans, London 1850 - Published for the Proprietors National Gallery, London. Printed by Bradbury and Evans, London in we believe 1847. An elephant folio which measures around 27" x 20" and weighs over 40 pounds. Bound in half polished burgundy leather over marbled boards. The leather is rubbed along the seams and the extremities, which are bumped at the corners and spine ends. However given the size and age of this book the binding is is very nice condition with both inner and outer hinges still strong. With raised spine bands and decorative tooling to the spine. With 74 full page plates in almost fine condition. No foxing, perhaps the odd soil/ fingermark to the edge, but much nicer than normally found. Each is protected by a tissue guard which is actually regular paper and not tissue. This is one of the largest and heaviest books we have ever handled, it is not possible to ship it overseas. I am unsure as to the exact bibliographical information on this title. However, it was issued in a much smaller volume with 66 plates and as an equally smaller volume with 50 plates also. This is not to be confused with either of those volumes, and is at least twice as large with 74 plates. There was a copy that sold at auction in London some time ago that suggests that there was a volume issued with the signed proof plates. This is assumed to be that state. More than 50 of the plates are signed in the lower right corner in pencil by the engraver. Each print has a small blindstamp from the Printmakers Association. An approximate list of the more than 50 signatures is H. S. Beckwith (2) J. C. Bentley ( 5) F. Bacon (2) R. Staines L. Stocks Robert Wallis (2) J. Cousen (8) E. Challis (2) J. T. Willmore T.

        Early Victorian Life

      [Melbourne, George Robertson & Co., circa 1890s]. Oblong duodecimo, a leporello comprising 12 postcard-size chromolithographs. Original blue pebble-grain cloth bordered in blind and lettered in gilt on the front cover, but lacking the original ribbon ties; covers lightly worn, mottled and marked; in good condition (internally fine). A scarce souvenir of rural Victoria at the end of the nineteenth century. The chromolithographs include 'Natives spearing Kangaroo', 'Alluvial Diggers', 'A Stampede', 'Yarding Cattle', 'Old Man Kangaroo at Bay', and 'A Buck Jumper'. The last one is curious - and inaccurate - to a fault; it depicts a rustic homestead and a couple of outbuildings, surrounded by post-and-railing fences, with the caption: 'Innamincka, Coopers Creek. Where Bourke [sic] the Explorer died'. Arthur Esam (1850-1934) looks good for the artwork.

        The Germ, thoughts towards Nature in Poetry, Literature and Art ... [continued as:] ... Art and Poetry, being thoughts towards Nature, conducted principally by artists

      London: Aylott & Jones [parts 1-2]; Dickinson & Co. [parts 3-4], 1850. 4 parts [all published], 8vo. 4 etched plates by William Holman Hunt, James Collinson, Ford Madox Brown and W.H. Deverell (one double-page). With the original front and back wrappers bound in (parts one and two front wrappers with overlays correcting the title, part four front wrapper with overlay correcting the date). Full green crushed morocco by Douglas Cockerell in 1903, the covers each divided into 24 square panels, with an elaborate floral pattern in gilt with red morocco inlays, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with a repeat floral decoration in gilt with red morocco inlays, green endpapers, gilt turn ins, top edge gilt. Expert repair to top and tail of spine.A complete run of the literary organ and manifesto of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood: in a fantastic binding by Cockerell.Established in 1850 at the beginning of the Pre-Raphaelite movement by its founding members Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and William Michael Rossetti, The Germ sought to circulate the creative work and radical ideas of the Pre-Raphaelites as expressed in poetry, literature and art. In their own words, printed at the end of each issue, their mission was: "With a view to obtain the thoughts of Artists, upon Nature as evolved in Art this Periodical has been established. Thus, then, it is not open to the conflicting opinions of all who handle the brush and palette, nor is it restricted to actual practitioners; but is intended to enunciate the principles of those who, in the true spirit of Art, enforce a rigid adherence to the simplicity of Nature either in Art or Poetry."Each issue included an engraving, poetry and historical or critical essays (on subjects, for example, such as early Italian artists, whom the group emulated). After two numbers, the magazine's title was changed to the more literal Art and Poetry: Being Thoughts towards Nature Conducted Principally by Artists (with overlays issued to the subscribers of the first two numbers to correct the title, as on the present example). In spite of Rossetti's ambitions and enthusiasm, the magazine sold poorly and ceased after but four numbers (January, February, March and April 1850), with only 106 copies of the final number sold.This original edition was the only one to contain original etchings. This copy bound in a fantastic binding by Douglas Cockerell and illustrated in his "Fine Bookbinding in England", in Holme's The Art of the Book: A Review of Some Recent European and American Work in Typography, Page Decoration & Binding ("The Studio" Limited, 1914), p.80.Hartnell & Eyre I, 19-21; Fredeman 72.1; Ashley IV 163-165; Tinker 1828.

        Poems

      Chapman and Hall, London 1850 - Preferred edition for the inclusion of Browning's lovely "Sonnets from the Portugese" (not in the first edition). A Near Fine copy in the original publisher's cloth, spines a bit faded, slight nick at the top of the front joint on volume two. Front hinge of volume one just starting, front hinge of volume two closed, otherwise a clean, bright set.Praised by journalist Harriet Martineau as an "immense advance" in original poetry, Browning's two volume set was immensely popular immediately following its release. Browning increased her commitment to using literature to produce social change, composing works for this collection that were "sentimental yet politically-charged and heaving with genuine empathy" (British Library). Drawing attention to social inequity that resulted from English economic policy in pieces like "The Cry of the Children," her poem "The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's point" further addressed the real life tragedies experienced by black women forced into the American slave trade. Other poems, including those in praise of George Sand, considered the challenges women writers confronted within a patriarchal culture. In this collection, Browning "anticipated Virginia Woolf's theory of the androgynous mind; the notion that the creative mind flourishes when a balance between the female/feminine and male/masculine is achieved. It entails being unconscious of, and thereby unrestrained by, biological sex" (British Library). Near Fine.
