Schneider, Sascha, Maler und Bildhauer (1870-1927).
An den Maler Max Klinger (1857-1920). Klinger hatte bei der Mäzenin Marie Meyer in Freiburg ein Stipendium für Sascha Schneider erwirkt. An diese richtet sich Klingers Nachschrift: "Gestern wurde in meiner abwesenheit ein brief hier ausgetragen, welcher Ihren werten namen zum absender hatte; zugleich soll die adresse für den eingeschriebenen Brief nicht genügt haben. Ich vermute nun, daß das schreiben an Sie, geehrter herr, zurückgehen wird, wenn nicht schon gegangen ist. Würden Sie nun wohl die freundlichkeit haben und Sich nochmal bemühen. Meine genaue adresse ist: Alex. Schneider, Gerokstr. 9. part. p: a.: Bildhauer Möller. Was das stechen anlangt, so sehen Sie mich nicht mehr so verzweifelt als ich bei Ihnen war, wenigstens habe ich die überzeugung gewonnen, daß ich bei genügender frist und wohlangebrachtem fleiße mir diese technik wohl noch aneignen werde. Ich werde nächstens so frei sein und Ihnen einige proben der ersten versuche einem Briefe beizulegen. In der hoffnung daß Sie Sich wohl fühlen, was bei dieser jahreszeit durchaus nicht phrase ist und den besten empfehlungen an Ihre werten angehörigen, denen ich für die reizende aufnahme noch verbindlichsten dank sage [...]" - Nachschrift von Max Klinger auf Seite 4: "Verehrte Frau Doktor! Ich hoffte Ihnen schon vorgestern Antwort wegen Schneider sagen zu können. Leider erhielt ich eine falsche Adresse - der Brief Schneiders besagt den Rest. Ich muss nun mal recherchieren, damit das Geld nicht doch verloren geht. Sobald ich Antwort von Schneider habe setze ich Sie in Kenntniß [...] M.

A. S. Waugh
London: Edward Stanford, 1857. [Hillary, Edmund.] Lieutenant-Colonel A. S. Waugh & B. S. Hodgson. 'Papers relating to the Himalaya and Mount Everest.' An article in the complete issue of Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society of London, no. IX, April & May, 1857. London: Edward Stanford, 1857. First edition. 8vo. pp. 329-364 [article at pp. 345-351]; some staining, good in the original printed wrappers. Signed to the front wrapper by Ed Hillary. Ownership inscription of Michael Ward to first leaf of text (doctor on the 1953 Everest Expedition). This article describes the naming of Mount Everest, and is signed by the first man to climb the mountain. Waugh's notice, just 2pp. long and dated Dehra, March 1st, 1856, marks the beginning of the Everest story in Britain. In this brief article, Waugh informs fellows of the RGS that the Survey of India's peak XV "is higher than any other hitherto measured in India, and most probably it is the highest in the whole world." He continues: "I was taught by my respected chief and predecessor, Colonel Geo. Everest, to assign to every geographical object its true local or native appellation. I have always scrupulously adhered to this rule, as I have in fact to all other principles laid down by that eminent graduist. But here is a mountain ... without any local name that we can discover ... I have determined to name this noble peak of the Himalayas 'Mont Everest.'" There follows a second notice in which B. H. Hodgson suggests that Everest does have a local name - Devadhunga - which should be adopted. In the discussion following the re … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean Martin CHARCOT
Paris, 1857. In-4° relié, 55 pages. Très rare thèse d'agrégation ratée de l'illustre neurologue. Son échec explique que tiré à petit nombre pour le Jury et quelques invités, elle ne fut jamais publiée. Il devra la repasser, avec succès, mais sans gloire, trois après, avec l'appui de Rayer qui siégant au Jury, lui avait déjà permis de gagner confortablement sa vie en le recommandant comme médecin de famille auprès du banquier Benoit Fould. En attendant de passer professeur après l'agrégation, il s'était déjà constitué une clientèle mondaine et fortunée dans son cabinet, Cité Trévise. Se contentant le plus souvent de prescrire, selon le précepte "Primum non nocere", de la belladone, du bromure, des élixirs et des cures qui contribueront fortement au succès de la station de Lamalou-les-Bains, il épargnera en quarante années de pratique, tout en dépensant sans compter, un capital de plus de deux millions et demi de francs. Le 13 novembre 1861, Charcot et Vulpian ont été promus chefs de service des deux services de médecine générale de la Salpêtrière, qui est appelée depuis 1837 Hospice de la Vieillesse-Femmes et dépend depuis 1849 de l'Assistance publique de Paris. S'inspirant des méthodes de Rudolf Virchow, il installe un laboratoire où il accueille les travaux de Duchenne de Boulogne, et procède au premier recensement systématique des pathologies de ses patientes17, son "musée pathologique vivant". - - - - - "Le 17 avril 1857, Charcot, jeune médecin du ?Bureau Central', présente sa thèse au concours d'agrégation.

Trollope, Anthony
London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1857. Rare first edition of one of Trollope's most important novels with "tattooed" for "tabooed" on page 269, line 24 in the second volume. Octavo three volumes bound in three quarters morocco over marbled boards, elaborate gilt tooling to the spine in six compartments within raised gilt bands, red and green morocco spine labels lettered in gilt, all edges speckled red. Without the half-title to volume one or advertisements. In very good condition. Barchester Towers is the second novel in Trollope's series known as the "Chronicles of Barsetshire". Among other things it satirises the antipathy in the Church of England between High Church and Evangelical adherents. Trollope began writing this book in 1855. He wrote constantly and made himself a writing-desk so he could continue writing while travelling by train. "Pray know that when a man begins writing a book he never gives over", he wrote in a letter during this period. "The evil with which he is beset is as inveterate as drinking - as exciting as gambling." In his autobiography, Trollope observed "In the writing of Barchester Towers I took great delight. The bishop and Mrs. Proudie were very real to me, as were also the troubles of the archdeacon and the loves of Mr. Slope". When he submitted his finished work, his publisher, William Longman, initially turned it down, finding much of it to be full of "vulgarity and exaggeration." Recent critics offer a more sanguine opinion, "Barchester Towers is many readers' favorite Trollope", wrote The Guardian, which included it in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Flaubert, Gustave
Michel Levy Freres, Paris, 1857. Original green wrappers and glassine jackets with minor chips to extremities of the spines, a rare survivor. True first, with dedication to "Senart," collating [iv], 232; [iv], [233]-490: complete, with half titles and titles as well as publisher's catalogue to rear of Volume I. Internally clean and bright. An exceptional copy of Flaubert's unequaled novel, which ushered in the age of modernism. Housed in a custom marbled slipcase with half morocco and marbled chemise. Flaubert's Emma Bovary rapidly gained notoriety for seduction and suicide following the novel's release and surrounding obscenity lawsuit in 1857. It would take another thirty years before the English edition of Flaubert's masterwork was translated and brought to Britain by Eleanor Marx-Aveling, daughter of Karl Marx, who aimed to give the English "a chance of reading. and seeing for themselves whether there is even the slightest foundation for this charge of immorality" (xii). Today, the novel is considered a masterpiece. "Madame Bovary is first and foremost a major milestone in the development of modern and, eventually, modernist fiction, as it introduced or intensified such developments as authorial 'impersonality', free indirect narration and a willingness to delve thematically into the banality and vulgarity of contemporary life" (Sayeau).

NY, 1857 Published by ROBERT CARTER & BROTHERS Binding: HARD BACK RED Size: 4.50X6.50 203 Pages Overall Condition is: FAIR ORIGINAL TEXT BLOCK TIGHT SOME PENCILING READING COPY contains the poem: The Star Spangled Banner with Introductory by Chief Justice Taney. Binding is starting to separate. Reading Copy Only. died 1843 The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States of America. The lyrics come from Defence of Fort McHenry ,[1] a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. Francis Scott Key wrote new words for a well-known drinking song, To Anacreon in Heaven, to celebrate America's recent victory over the British. However, only in 1931, following a twenty-year effort during which more than forty bills and joint resolutions were introduced in Congress, was a law finally signed proclaiming The Star Spangled Banner to be the national anthem of the United States. The Star-Spangled Banner was recognized for official use by the Navy in 1889 and the President in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931 (46 Stat. 1508, codified at 36 U.S.C. 301), which was signed by President Herbert. presently in the Library of Congress a copy, one of only five known to have been made by Key, is the earliest of four dating from the period 1840-1842 near the end of his life. Scarce I believe this to be one of the earliest books printed cont … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Southern Women's Education] Lizzie M. Solomons
South Carolina, 1857. Manuscript friendship book compiled during the academic year 1856-1857 at Orangeburg Female College of South Carolina. Comprised of 36 pages in a variety of hands, signed by women students and teachers of the schools, in addition to 9 inserted pieces. Bound in an ornate pebbled leather and gilt Album of Beauty, with all edges gilt and featuring engravings of young women throughout. Ownership signatures of Lizzie M. Solomons to front endpaper and rear pastedown. According to her own contributions to the album, Lizzie's family was from Spartanburg and she was enrolled at Orangeburg. Throughout, she is referred to by teachers as Mary (likely Elizabeth Mary) and by her cohort of friends as Cuttie. The present album is a unique example of the relationships of educated women from two different early Southern seminaries -- one highly conservative, and the other which would in a decade become absorbed into the state's first historically black college. Both Spartanburg and Orangeburg Female Colleges were early examples of women's seminaries in the South. For the former, the maintenance of a Southern cultural identity was a cornerstone; and the President's inaugural address emphasized the specific role of female education in the South: "Women were expected to be good mothers...without proper education, he lamented in his talk, women were susceptible to corruption. Education provided the solution to maintaining a proper Southern Culture" (Richmond). Of Orangeburg, a bit less is known. But approximately a decade after Lizzie's enrollment in the college, … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Edition. LW C8. Searle 650. Raabe 372. LC Catalog 246. Hoboken 10, 15. Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major was first performed February 17, 1855 in Weimar with Liszt as soloist and Berlioz conducting. The work has received its fair share of criticism, but also has a number of prominent defenders: "There is much to be learned from a study of its original, cyclic form, which shows conclusively the absurdity of saying that Liszt's music is formless. The work breaks new ground. For while it falls into four quite distinct movements, which are are nonetheless thematically linked, it is played without a break, the entire Concerto unfolding more than twenty minutes continuous music. Bartók regarded it as 'the first perfect realization of cyclic sonata form, with common themes treated on the variation principle'-the 'variation principle' being, of course, Liszt's own technique of the 'metamorphosis of themes'." Robert Collet: Franz Liszt The Man and his Music, p. 260.
