        Memoria instructiva de los derechos y justas causas que tiene el gobierno de los Estados-Unidos Mexicanos, para no reconocer ni la subsistencia del privilegio concedido á Don José Garay para abrir una vía de comunicación entre dos océanos Atlántico y Pacífico por el istmo de Tehuantepec, ni la legitimidad de la cesión que aquel hizo del mismo privilegio á ciudadanos de los Estados-Unidos de la América del Norte. La pública el Ministro de Relaciones.

      The quest for a faster route from the Atlantic to the Pacific than via the Roaring 40s was the cause of many a 19th-century Arctic expedition and numerous "schemes" for various canals across the Isthmus of Tehuantec, Nicaragua, and Panama. The gold rushes in California (1849) and Australia (1851) spurred not just interest but demand for a faster route. On 1 March 1842 President Santa Anna granted José de Garay (1801-58) a concession "para construir una vía de comunicación en el Istmo de Tehuantepec." But as with all of these canal schemes, politics, money, nature, and technology posed insurmountable obstacles until the 20th century. This pamphlet of 1852 lays out the case that the Ministry of Foreign Relations presented to the public and the investors in the Tehuantepec project for cancelling Garay's concession and thus nullifying the investment in it by U.S. citizens and banks. One suspects that the terms of Santa Anna's pre-gold rush grant looked to be a major obstacle to the Mexican government's maximally benefitting from the proposed link between the oceans once many, many more people and much more cargo were travelling west; hence the obvious expediency of nullifying Santa Anna's generosity -- not that any alternative plan came quickly to fruition.

        [Notes, annotations and references, used as source material for an important article on Abel Tasman, published in 1887].[Amsterdam, Batavia, etc., ca. 1883-1887]. 2 single-leaf letters, 3 postcards and 40 leaves and slips, many pasted up on 6 leaves of a discarded printed catalogue. Kept together by a small contemporary folder with "Tasman" written on the front in Dozy's hand.

      Notes, annotations and references in Dutch by Charles Marius Dozy (1852-1901), used as source material for his important article on Abel Tasman (1603-1659), the Dutch explorer most famous for his Pacific voyages of 1642 and 1644, the former including the discovery of the island of Tasmania, named after Tasman. Together with two original letters and three pre-stamped postcards by well-known archivists and librarians in the Netherlands and in Batavia in the Dutch East Indies (now Jakarta, Indonesia), sending notes about relevant documents in their collections. Dozy published his article using many of these notes as, "Abel Janszoon Tasman", Bijdragen tot de taal-, land- en volkenkunde van Nederlandsch Indië, 36 (1887), pp. 308-331. It revealed a great deal of new information about Tasman's life and served as the foundation for much later scholarship.Some browning and Dozy apparently made a cut into one leaf and stopped when he realized that it also had notes on the back, but the collection is generally in very good condition.

Moore sent her instead this edition. Please ask for more images. George Augustus Moore (24 February 1852 21 January 1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family who lived at Moore Hall in Carra, County Mayo. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Émile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann, and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. George Moore's family had lived in Moore Hall, near Lough Carra, County Mayo for almost a century. The house was built by his paternal great-grandfatheralso called George Moorewho had made his fortune as a wine merchant in Alicante. The novelist's grandfather was a friend of Maria Edgeworth, and author of An Historical Memoir of the French Revolution. His great-uncle, John Moore, was president of the short-lived Republic of Connacht during the Irish Rebellion of 1798. The novelist's father, George Henry Moore, sold his stable and hunting interests during the Great Irish Famine, and from 18471857, served as an Independent Member of Parliament (MP) for Mayo in the British House of Commons. George Henry was renowned as a fair landlord, fought to uphold the rights of tenants, and was a founder of the Catholic Defence Association. His estate consisted of 5000 ha (50 km) in Mayo, with a further 40 ha in County Roscommon. In 1868, Moore's father was again elected MP for Mayo and the family moved to London the following year. Here, Moore senior tried, unsuccessfully, to have his son follow a career in the military though, prior to this, he attended the School of Art in the South Kensington Museum where his achievements were no better. He was freed from any burden of education when his father died in 1870.[13] Moore, though still a minor, inherited the family estate that was valued at 3,596. He handed it over to his brother Maurice to manage and in 1873, on attaining his majority, moved to Paris to study art. It took him several attempts to find an artist who would accept him as a pupil. Monsieur Jullian, who had previously been a shepherd and circus masked man, took him on for 40 francs a month.[14] At Académie Jullian he met Lewis Weldon Hawkins who became Moore's flat-mate and whose trait, as a failed artist, show up in Moore's own characters.[13] He met many of the key artists and writers of the time, including Pissarro, Degas, Renoir, Monet, Daudet, Mallarmé, Turgenev and, above all, Zola, who was to prove an influential figure in Moore's subsequent development as a writer. While still in Paris his first book, a collection of lyric poems called The Flowers of Passion, was self-published in 1877. The poems were derivative, maliciously reviewed by the critics who were offended by some of the depravities in store for moralistic readers and was withdrawn by Moore. He was forced to return to Ireland in 1880 to raise 3,000 to pay debts incurred on the family estate due to his tenants refusing to pay their rent and the drop in agricultural prices. During his time back in Mayo, he gained a reputation as a fair landlord, continuing the family tradition of not evicting tenants and refusing to carry firearms when travelling round the estate. While in Ireland, he decided to abandon art and move to London to become a professional writer. There he published his second poetry collection, Pagan Poems, in 1881. These early poems reflect his interest in French symbolism and are now almost entirely neglected. In 1886 Moore published Confessions of a Young Man, a lively and energetic memoir about his 20s spent in Paris and London among bohemian artists. It contains a substantial amount of literary criticism for which it has received a fair amount of praise, for instance The Modern Library chose it in 1917 to be included in the series as "one of the most significant documents of the passionate revolt of English literature against the Victorian tradition." During the 1880s, Moore began work on a series of novels in a realist style. His first novel, A Modern Lover (1883) was a three-volume work, as preferred by the circulating libraries, and deals with the art scene of the 1870s and 1880s in which many characters are identifiably real. The circulating libraries in England banned the book because of its explicit portrayal of the amorous pursuits of its hero. At this time the British circulating libraries, such as Mudie's Select Library, controlled the market for fiction and the public, who paid fees to borrow their books, expected them to guarantee the morality of the novels available. His next book, a novel in the realist style, A Mummers Wife (1885) was also regarded as unsuitable by Mudie's and W H Smith refused to stock it on their news-stalls. Despite this, during its first year of publication the book was in its fourteenth edition mainly due to the publicity garnered by its opponents. As with A Modern Lover, his two next novels, A Mummers Wife and A Drama in Muslin, were banned by Mudie's and Smith's. In response Moore declared war on the circulating libraries by publishing two provocative pamphlets Literature at Nurse and Circulating Morals. In these, he complained that the libraries profit from salacious popular fiction while refusing to stock serious literary fiction. Moore's publisher Henry Vizetelly began to issue unabridged mass-market translations of French realist novels that endangered the moral and commercial influence of the circulating libraries around this time. In 1888, the circulating libraries fought back by encouraging the House of Commons to implement laws to stop 'the rapid spread of demoralising literature in this country'. However, Vizetelly was brought to court by the National Vigilance Association (NVA) for 'obscene libel'. The charge arose due to the publication of the English translation of Zola's La Terre. A second case was brought the following year in order to force implementation of the original judgement and to remove all of Zola's works. This led to the 70-year-old publisher becoming involved in the literary cause. Throughout Moore stayed loyal to Zola's publisher, and on 22 September 1888, about a month before the trial, wrote a letter that appeared in the St. James Gazette. In it Moore suggested it was improper that Vizetelly's fate be determined by a jury of twelve tradesmen, explaining it would be preferable to be judged by three novelists. Moore pointed out that the NVA could make the same claims against such books as Madame Bovary and Gautier's Mademoiselle de Maupin, as their morals are equivalent to Zola's, though their literary merits might differ. Because of his willingness to tackle such issues as prostitution, extramarital sex and lesbianism, Moore's novels were initially met with disapprobation. However, as the public's taste for realist fiction grew, this subsided. Moore began to find success as an art critic with the publication of books such as Impressions and Opinions (1891) and Modern Painting (1893)which was the first significant attempt to introduce the Impressionists to an English audience. By this time Moore was first able to live from the proceeds of his literary work. Other realist novels by Moore from this period include A Drama in Muslin (1886), a satiric story of the marriage trade in Anglo-Irish society that hints at same-sex relationships among the unmarried daughters of the gentry, and Esther Waters (1894), the story of an unmarried housemaid who becomes pregnant and is abandoned by her footman lover. Both of these books have remained almost constantly in print since their first publication. His 1887 novel A Mere Accident is an attempt to merge his symbolist and realist influences. He also published a collection of short stories: Celibates (1895). In 1901, Moore returned to Ireland to live in Dublin at the suggestion of his cousin and friend, Edward Martyn. Martyn had been involved in Ireland's cultural and dramatic movements for some years, and was working with Lady Gregory and William Butler Yeats to establish the Irish Literary Theatre. Moore soon became deeply involved in this project and in the broader Irish Literary Revival. He had already written a play, The Strike at Arlingford (1893), which was produced by the Independent Theatre. The play was the result of a challenge between Moore and George Robert Sims over Moore's criticism of all contemporary playwrights in Impressions and Opinions. Moore won the one hundred pound bet made by Sims for a stall to witness an "unconventional" play by Moore, though Moore insisted the word "unconventional" be excised.[24] George Moore lived at No. 4 Upper Ely Place at the start of the 20th century The Irish Literary Theatre staged his satirical comedy The Bending of the Bough (1900), adapted from Martyn's The Tale of a Town, originally rejected by the theatre but unselfishly given to Moore for revision, and Martyn's Maeve. Staged by the company who would later become the Abbey Theatre, The Bending of the Bough was a historically important play and introduced realism into Irish literature. Lady Gregory wrote that it: "hits impartially all round". The play was satire on Irish political life, and as it was unexpectedly nationalist, was considered the first to deal with a vital question that had appeared in Irish life. Diarmuid and Grania, a poetic play in prose co-written with Yeats in 1901, was also staged by the theatre, with incidental music by Elgar. After this production Moore took up pamphleteering on behalf of the Abbey, and parted company with the dramatic movement. Moore published two books of prose fiction set in Ireland around this time a second book of short stories, The Untilled Field (1903) and a novel, The Lake (1905). The Untilled Field deal with themes of clerical interference in the daily lives of the Irish peasantry, and of the issue of emigration. The stories were originally written for translation into Irish, in order to serve as models for other writers working in the language. Three of the translations were published in the New Ireland Review, but publication was then paused due to a perceived anti-clerical sentiment. In 1902 the entire collection was translated by Tadhg Ó Donnchadha and Pádraig Ó Súilleabháin, and published in a parallel-text edition by the Gaelic League as An-tÚr-Ghort. Moore later revised the texts for the English edition. These stories were influenced by Turgenev's A Sportsman's Sketches, a book recommended to Moore by W. K. Magee, a sub-librarian of the National Library of Ireland, and had earlier suggested that Moore "was best suited to become Ireland's Turgenev". The tales are recognised by some as representing the birth of the Irish short story as a literary genre. In 1903, following a disagreement with his brother Maurice over the religious upbringing of his nephews, Moore declared himself to be Protestant. His conversion was announced in a letter to the Irish Times newspaper. Moore remained in Dublin until 1911. In 1914, he published a gossipy, three-volume memoir of h

        SMITH'S ILLUSTRATED ASTRONOMY, Designed for the Use of the Public or Common Schools in the United States

      New York: Cady & Burgess, 1852. Hardcover. Good. Illustrated with numerous original diagrams (frontispiece, with 28 full-page plates and a textual illustration). New York: Cady & Burgess, 1852. Tenth edition. In his preface, Smith writes "It has been the object of the author of this little manual of Astronomical science, to present all the distinguishing principles in physical Astronomy with as few words as possible; but with such occular demonstrations, by way of diagrams and maps, as shall make the subject easily understood." This visual approach made Smith's Illustrated Astronomy the most popular American astronomy book of the 19th century, and it remains one of the most historically and artistically important manifestations of astral iconography. Quarto. The original pictorial paper-covered boards have been expertly rebacked with a new black morocco spine. Some occasional mild soiling to the contents, with the typical minor offsetting opposite the plates. The boards are shelfworn and soiled, with a minor scratch to the front panel and a few small stains.

        Letters of Percy Bysshe Shelley. With an Introductory Essay by Robert Browning.

      London: Edward Moxon, Dover Street 1852 vi, [1], [1 blank], 165, [2], [1 blank] pp. - 8 pp. (List of Books). Ganzleder Handeinband mit reicher Vergoldung, Octavo, ca. 197 x 124 mm. (Einband minimalst berieben, erste und letzte Blätter braunfleckig, sehr schönes Exemplar) Contemporary olive morocco (203 x 133 x 17,5 mm), spine with five raised bands, panelled and lettered in gilt, richly gilt with gilt fleural tools and lines, boards with gilt line panels. Top edge gilt, burgundy endleaves. Bound by Riviere & Son, and signed on upper turn-in.. This is the first edition of the Browning Essay. Edward Moxon bought twenty three letters at a Sotheby & Wilkinson sale, 12 May 1851. The vendor of these letters was the bookseller William White who had obtained them, with other items including Byron forgeries, from `Major George Gordon de Luna Byron`, also known as DeBibler, who claimed to be the illegitimate son of the poet Byron by a Spanish lady. The son of Sir Francis Palgrave realised that Letter XXI to William Godwin from Florence was cribbed from a letter to his father.\"An ingenious forgery perpetrated by an impostor, claiming to be the [natural] son of Lord Byron. Two genuine letters, which happened to be in Moxon`s hands, were included. The fraud was discovered, to the chagrin of Browning and Moxon, who at once destroyed all obtainable copies of the book\" (Granniss).The two genuine letters in the present volume are No. V to Sir James Henry Lawrence, August 17, 1812 (= Ingpen #186; de Ricci 186) and No. XXIII to Keats, Pisa, July 27, 1820 (= Ingpen #484; de Ricci 484).\"One of the most ingenious literary forgeries of modern times is recalled by a rare work which a London bookdealer now is offering for sale for $375. It is an octavo volume published in 1852 by Moxon and entitled `Letters of P. B. Shelley, with an introductory essay by Robert Browning. Browning really wrote the introduction, but not one of the twenty-five letters in it is by Shelley. These letters purported to have been sent by Percy Bysshe Shelley, the eminent English poet, to various of his friends. They were clever imitations of his hand-writing, and bore the postmarks of cities in which it was known that Shelley had resided. The book made a sensation. Browning`s preface is one of his most admired pieces of prose writing. Moxon sent copies of the work to a number of distinguished literary men, among others Lord Alfred Tennyson. Francis Turner Palgrove, son of Sir Francis Palgrove, the historian, was at the time a guest of Lord Tennyson. He picked up the book one day and opened it at a letter from Shelley to Godwin, his father-in-law, which seemed strangely familiar to him. He read on and found that the letter was a plagiarism of an article which his father had contributed to the Quarterly Review in 1840. Moxon, when informed of this discovery, said that he had bought the letters at a public sale, and that they seemed authentic. The handwriting appeared genuine, the seal was Shelley`s and the addresses bore the stamp of the Post Offices of the italian towns where Shelley had lived. It happened that, at the same sale, the poet`s son, Sir Percy Florence Shelley, had bought other letters of his father, which were of a private and personal character. These letters were found to be at utter variance with well-known facts. Moxon at once suppressed the book, the auctionneer said that the letters had come to him from a bookseller named W. White. White, in turn, said that he had bought them from an unknown woman who claimed to have received them from Fletcher, Lord Byron`s servant. Further search revealed that behind this unknown woman was the forger, George Gordon Byron, alias De Gibler. This adventurer bore a striking resemblance to Lord Byron, had assumed his name, and had passed himself off as Byron`s natural son. He almost succeeded in palming off on a publisher some unedited remains of Lord Byron. As soon as the facts about the letters became known he disappeared (...)\" (New York Times, February 26, 1911: \"Shelley`s forged letters. Rare copy for sale in London, the work of G. G.

Her work has been reevaluated by modern scholars and there has been great interest in Freudian interpretations of her work, particularly "Goblin Market" which is often regarded as symbolic of repressed female genius. Frances Polidori Rossetti (1800-1886) was the daughter of Italian exile Gaetano Polidori and sister of John Polidori, and author of "The Vampyre" and Lord Byron's physician.

Each illustrated with woodcuts by A. Henning, H.G. Hine, Gavarni, et. al. 13 vols. 16mo. A Choice Little Batch of David Bogue. One of the most popular publishers of mid-nineteenth-century English humor was David Bogue, of 86 Fleet Street. Master of the handy illustrated format (exemplified by the books in this choice selection), Bogue and his stable of writers and illustrators - which included George Cruikshank, A. Henning, H.G. Hine, Horace Mayhew, Gavarni, and many others - delighted the English public by tweaking the noses of contemporary snobs, bores, toadies, flirts, gluttons, etc., and exploring the 'natural history' of English fauna. This delightful collection of his publications includes: (1) Reach, Angus B. The Natural history of "Bores". 1847. Illustrated by Hine. (2) Reach, The Natural History of Humbugs. 1847. Illustrated by Henning. (3) Reach, London on the Thames; or, Life above and below Bridge. London: Published at the Office of the Puppet Show, [1847?]. Illustrated by Hine, Gavarni, et. al.

      Kralik, Richard, Schriftsteller (1852-1934). 8 eigenh. Postkarten, 7 davon mit U., 7 eigenh. Briefe mit U., 8 Manuskripte, 3 Kuverts. Eine Postkarte undatiert, sonst Briefe und Postkarten von 9. X. 1913 bis 16. XI. 1919. Manuskripte undatiert. Verschiedene Formate. Zus. ca. 101 Seiten. - Adressiert an (und aus dem Nachlass von) Joseph Eberle, Redakteur bei der Reichspost und Herausgeber der katholischen Zeitschrift "Schönere Zukunft" 1884-1947). Manuskripte zur Veröffentlichung in der Reichspost, bei welcher Eberle den Bereich "Allgemeine Kultur und religiöse Fragen" leitete. (7. IX. 1919:) "Es gibt keinen Autor, der nicht von einem mißwollenden Leser hingerichtet werden könnte dagegen hilft keine Vorsicht. Als ich vor Jahren meine apologtischen Gespräche über Religion in Jos. Mosers "Schul- u. Elternztg." veröffentlichte, erhielt Moser auch von einem Ordenspriester, der mich aber wiederholt in gedrückten Kritiken überschwenglich gelobt hat, bedenkliche Briefe, so daß mir nachträglich die Herausgabe in Buchform verleidet war. Und nun sagte mir vor kurzem Seminardirektor Gustav Müller, ihm habe ein Priester gesagt, daß er noch jetzt diese alten Kapitel bei Predigten u. sonst sehr gut gebrauchen könne. Ich habe dann bei Moser auch eine Psychologie ("Welt und Seele") kapitelweise erscheinen lassen da würden mir aber die Bedenken über diese Arbeit zu arg und ich brach die Veröffentlichung plötzlich ab, um nicht Ärgernis zu erregen" Weiter Bezug zur Flucht von Joseph Görres, Publizist (1776-1848). - Sonstige Briefe zu bestimmten Zeitungsartikeln oder der Position Kraliks gegenüber der Reichspost, etc. - Postkarten: (Undatierte Postkarte:) Verschiebung einer Gralsitzung (Anm.: Kralik gründete die katholisch-nationalistische Gesellschaft "Gralbund" mit der Zeitung "Der Gral") - (undatierte Postkarte:) Einladung zu einer Gralsitzung am 6. XII. 1916. - (Postkarte 16. XI. 1918:) "L[ieber] fr[eund] Ich rate dir, in der Anzeige des neuen Titels zu sagen, daß nicht eine Wandlung in den Anschauungen über die Staatsform, sondern der Umstand ausschlaggebend war, daß derzeit eine "öst.-ung. Monarchie" als Reichsgebiet nicht existiert, sondern nur verschiedene Teilstaaten, von denen wir allerdings hoffen, daß sie auf föderativem Wege wieder zu einem Bunde einigen werden, dessen Benennung wir aber nicht vorgreifen wollen. - Ich habe heute wieder ein paar Artikelchen geschrieben [...]" - (1. IX. 1919:) "Ich beug mich geknirscht vor dem Wauwau Von der Hohen Schule von Stockerau und flehe, man spreche mich endlich frei Von meiner verbrecherischen Bahrbahrei". - Manuskripte: Alle Manuskripte sind auf der Rückseite eines alten Manuskriptes verfasst worden, welches unvollständig und unzusammenhängend ist (hauptsächlich Geschichtliches). Die Seitenangabe bezieht sich auf die relevanten Seiten, d. h. 10 S. = 10 Bl.) - 1. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Werke zur Literaturgeschichte. "[...] Wenn Gott, der Vater, Christi, die Welt geschaffen hat, so ist auch die ganze Welt ihrem Wesen nach christlich, d. h. katholisch. Darum steht Christus auch in der Mitte der Weltliteratur [...] Alles dient nur dazu, die christliche Kultur zu schmücken und auszugestalten. [...]"(10 S.) - 2. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Literarische Vereinigungen. Kommentare zu Idunna, Leogesellschaft, Wiener Literarischer Verein, viel über den Gralbund. "[...]Ich sah nicht etwa die Katholische Literatur als "auch" zulässig an, sondern als den Gipfel, die Krone, die Vollendung aller Literatur sie sollte nicht bloß geduldet, sondern in ihrer alles überragenden Bedeutung sowohl von Katholiken wie Nichtkatholiken anerkannt werden. [...]" (10 S.) - Beiliegend Buchseiten über die Geschichte Wallensteins. (24 S.) - 3. "Zur Revision der deutschen Geschichte und Kultur vom süddeutsch-österreichischen Standpunkt. Neue Beiträge von Dr. Richard Kralik. " II. - Geschichtliche Abhandlung, die mit einem Aufruf gegen die Entente endet, die das katholische Österreich "an Haupt und Gliedern" zerstören will. (10 S.) - 4. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Meine wissenschaftlichen Werke. Geschichte." In erster Linie Abhandlung über seine eigenen Geschichtsbücher. (12 S.) - 5. Die erste Seite fehlt, daher titellos. Kommentar zum ersten Weltkrieg und zu Kaiser Karl I. (4 S.) - 5. "Kulturelle Gedanken zu den Wahlen" Eine Ermahnung, die Wahlen ernstzunehmen. (6 S.) - 6. "Zum Jubiläum des hl. Hieronymus" Abhandlung über den Hl. Hieronymus mit Kommentar auf die Gegenwart (5 S.) - 7. "Allgemeine Geschichte der Neuesten Zeit. Eine Selbstanzeige von Dr. Richard Kralik" Abhandlung über die Entwicklungen der letzten Jahrzehnte, darunter v. a. Bismarck, welchen er stark verurteilt: "[...]Nicht die Begeisterung für deutsche oder preußische Größe hat seine Handlungen beseelt, sondern der Haß gegen das katholische, das habsburgische Österreich.[...]" (11 S.) - 8. "Legitimität. Von Dr. Richard Kralik" Beitrag hauptsächlich zum bereits geschehen ersten Weltkrieg: "[...] Aber - aber - die nichtlegitimen Einflüße und Störungen waren es, die verfassungsmäßige Fortentwicklung gestört haben. Also nicht Schwäche und Irrtum in der legitimen Handhabung der Gesetze, sondern Bosheit, Verbrechen und Verrat haben die organische Entwicklung der österreichisch-ungarischen Verfassung aufgehalten. unmöglich gemacht und zum Scheitern gebracht. Bis zum letzten Augenblick haben sich die Nationalitäten Österreichs als loyal bekannt und ihre Mitarbeit am Verfassungswerk zugesagt. Der Verrat kam von außen, von den Ententemächten und ihrer lebhaften Propaganda [...]" Weiter Kommentar zum Kommunismus und seinem Widerspruch zur Natur. (13 S.) - 9. "Das Unfehlbarkeitsdogma. Von Richard Kralik" Abhandlung über die päpstliche Unfehlbarkeit und dem Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil von 1870. Dabei Verurteilen der Bischöfe, die dem gegenüber skeptisch waren (und Verurteilung Bismarcks). Der katholische Theologe Ignaz von Döllinger (1799-1890) wird ebenfalls stark kritisiert. (20 S.) - Richard Ritter Kralik von Meyrswalden war katholisch-konservativer Kultur- und Literaturhistoriker, Dramatiker und Lyriker (vgl. ÖAW). Nanuskripte auf den Rückseiten stets mit einem blauen Buntstift durchgestrichen. Auf den Vorderseiten öfters Korrekturen durch eine fremde Hand (vermutlich von Eberle). Öfters sind Textpassagen korrigierend mit anderen Textpassagen überklebt, dadurch Klebspuren. Die äußeren Seiten jeweils immer leicht angestaubt. Sonst gut erhalten.
