        Manuscrit autographe : Deuxième partie du roman "Catherine d'Overmeire. Etude"

      1860 - Manuscrit autographe de 58 feuillets in-folio (de formats divers), foliotés de 69 à 126, repliés en liasse, s.d. (circa 1859-1860). qq. petits accrocs à qq. ff., mais bon état par ailleurs Manuscrit autographe provenant du fonds de l'éditeur Edouard Dentu, chez lequel l'édition originale du roman fut publiée en 1860 (Vicaire, III, 698) ; on relève les noms des typographes apposés au crayon sur les feuillets. Le manuscrit est très abondamment corrigé et annoté par Ernest Feydeau, avec de nombreuses additions marginales, des passages biffés, de nouvelles rédactions contrecollées sur les versions antérieures. Il contient l'intégralité de la seconde partie (sur les 4 composant l'ouvrage), correspondant aux pages 159 à 288 du premier Tome, dans l'édition Dentu. L'ouvrage d'Ernest Feydeau (ami de Gustave Flaubert, père de Georges Feydeau) lui valut une défense de Sainte-Beuve (Lettre sur la morale et l'art, Le Moniteur, 20 février 1860) ) et un éreintement par Barbey d'Aurevilly (Les Oeuvres et les Hommes. Les Romanciers) qui mérite d'être cité : "Déjà M. Sainte-Beuve l'avait ondoyé sur le front byronien de Daniel, mais aujourd'hui il l'a tenu sur les fonts de baptême de la publicité, dans la personne de Catherine d'Overmeire, et il a répondu, à haute et intelligible voix, de son talent devant les hommes et devant Dieu" [. ] "Catherine d'Overmeire n'est pas une idée comme Fanny, mais de l’art pour l’art, un conte pour un conte, c’est le récit d’une séduction que rien, à coup sûr, n’empêche d’être vraie. En d’autres termes, c’est cette vieille et éternelle histoire, toujours vulgaire et toujours nouvelle, d’une femme séduite, enlevée et trahie par un homme, et que le romancier le moins éloquent, le moins pathétique et le moins habile, pourra toujours recommencer avec une inépuisable chance de succès, tout le temps que les hommes seront ce qu’ils sont, à si peu d’exceptions près, — de vrais jeunes gens jusqu’à la tombe. Née d’une séduction, Catherine d’Overmeire est victime d’une autre. Seulement, une fois parfaitement déshonorée, elle est épousée par un moraliste plein d’ampleur, qui n’y fait pas tant de façons, et qui tient la faute de la jeune fille bien moins pour une honte que pour un malheur."

        (Plastischer Schul-Atlas für die Erste Stufe des Unterrichts in der Erdkunde. Enthaltend die Karten Deutschland, Europa, Asien, Afrika, Nord- und Süd-Amerika und Australien, nebst einem Ideal-Bild der physisch-geographischen Verhältnisse. Im Relief geprägt und ... in Farben gedruckt).

      . B. Dondorf, Frft. ca. 1860. Zweimal 8 gleiche Kartenblätter (22,5 x 27,5 cm) in Steinstich mit Vignetten und Legenden, ein Satz reliefgeprägt mit physischen, der zweite Satz plano mit politischem Farbdruck. Die Reliefkarten unter braun bezogene Holzrähmchen gesetzt, die zweidimensionalen in einen Papierumschlag eingelegt. Zusammen in stabilem, neuerem Klappkasten aus grau gestrichenem Holz. Die politischen Kartenblätter etwas knitterig und wasserfleckig, wenige Randeinrisse. Auch die Kartenrähmchen teilweise fleckig, an der Rückseite Aufhängespuren. Einige Bergspitzen der Reliefs berieben, wenige kleine Oberflächenläsuren. Gutes Exemplar. - Vermutlich die vierte Ausgabe des ersten und bis 1876 einzigen reliefplastischen Weltatlanten. Ravensteins Prototyp erschien 1839, nach Espenlaub noch mit zweidimensionalen Reliefzeichnungen. Erst die zweite Ausgabe von 1849 war plastisch von topographischen Modellen abgeformt. Stich, Prägung, Druck und Verlag übernahm der Frankfurter Spielkartenfabrikant Bernard Dondorf. Ravensteins Reliefkarten wurden in einem Klappkasten aus dünner Pappe mit Deckeltitel ausgegeben. Beide sind hier nicht erhalten, doch gestatten die mit jeder Auflage aktualisierten politischen Angaben eine recht genaue Datierung. So ist in unserem Exemplar bereits das 1854 gegründete Nebraska Territory verzeichnet. Oregan, das 1859 Bundesstaat wurde, wird aber auch noch als Territory bezeichnet. Daher ist dies sehr wahrscheinlich die vierte Auflage, da die dritte 1854, letze, fünfte Auflage, 1865 erschien. (Da es sich um ein fragiles Machwerk handelt, das obendrein pädagogisch genutzt wurde, sind nur wenige Exemplare nachweisbar). Espenhorst, Petermann's Planet II, p. 1108 mit Illus. 41.2..

Series/Title: Presumed unserialized actor print with four principal actors and their roles. HxW 9.8 x 7.2 inches each panel. Triptych in chuban tate-e. Date: No date seals. Believed to be about 1860. Style of signature suggests that the work dates from the artist's young manhood. Signed: Yoshitaki. Publisher: No publisher seals. Colors: Superb colors, neither much faded nor too vibrant. Two shades of green, medium blue, purple, rust-red, orange, black, and a touch of yellow and ochre. Condition: Exceptionally clean. No wrinkles, no holes, and almost no soiling. Margins are fully trimmed. Lovely laid [?] paper. Unbacked. Almost no tape residue to the back. Very Good Plus to Near Fine as to impression. The lines are mainly clean and clear. Probably early pulls from the block. Subtle use of bokashi as well as kara-zuri or gauffrage, especially in the tree leaves, the hanging lanterns and a kimono collar. Overall rated Very Good Plus. Comments: Yoshitaki was born Nakai Tsunejiro (Kojiro) in Shimizucho in Osaka in as the eldest son of a paste merchant. From age 12 to 15, Yoshitaki was a student of Nakajima Yoshiume (1819-1879), who had studied under Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861). His earliest prints were published when he had barely entered his teens. Yoshitaki was purportedly the most prolific designer of woodblock prints in Osaka from the 1860s to the 1880s, producing more than 1,200 different prints, almost all of kabuki actors.

        Two Cased Half-Plate Tin Type Portraits of Philadelphia Abolitionist and Women's Rights Advocates Sarah Moore Grimke, Margaret Jones Burleigh, and Abby Kimber

      [Philadelphia?. circa 1860]. Two half-plate tin types of Female Abolitionist and Women's Rights activists from Philadelphia. One is a group portrait, with Margaret Jones Burleigh seated on the left, Sarah Moore Grimke seated on the right, and Abby Kimber standing between them. Mounted in one-half of a leather case, tarnish on the mat, but the image is just about fine. The second is a seated portrait of Abby Kimber holding a small photo album with metal clasp on her lap in one hand, and with the other arm rested on a table. Her cheeks have been slightly tinted in the image. Mounted in one-half of a leather case, slight tarnish on the mat, but the image is fine.Abby Kimber taught at her father's Kimberton School in Chester County, outside of Philadelphia, which advocated the absence of authority. She was a very active abolitionist, and was, among other positions, the president of the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society, on which she served with Lucretia Mott. She was a delegate to the London World Anti-Slavery Convention in London in 1840, which, according to an essay by Kathyrn Kish Sklar in The Abolitionist Sisterhood: Women's Political Culture in Antebellum America, "occup[ies] an important place in the history of American women because it was there that Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton first met and conceived the need for a separate women's rights movement... There Stanton was transformed by her contact with Mott and other American women delegates to the convention. In her memoirs Stanton lovingly named them: Emily Winslow, Abby Southwick, Elizabeth Neall, Mary Grew, Abby Kimber, Sarah Grew, and Lucretia Mott."Margaret Jones Burleigh, according to Gay Gibson Cina in Performing Anti-Slavery: Activist Women on Antebellum Stages, was unusual at the time for maintaining an (reasonably) open relationship with Mary Grew (who was herself the president of the Pennsylvania Woman Suffrage Association), who she notes (in quoting a contemporary historian) "devoted to Grew with that affection passing the love of men which many of these anti-slavery women manifest toward one another."Sarah Moore Grimke was an important abolitionist, but more importantly a towering figure in women's rights. Born in South Carolina but opposed to slavery, she eventually moved to Philadelphia with her sister Angelina, after they had both become Quakers. The sisters were leading abolitionists and teachers, founding a school at the Raritan Bay Union, a utopian colony in New Jersey, where they taught the children of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. More particularly, Sarah became a leading advocate of women's rights, she was invited but could not attend the Seneca Fall's Convention. Her 1838 Letters on the Equality of the Sexes, and the Condition of Women later formed some of the arguments that fueled the writings and teachings of Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Lucy Stone.Our research indicates that these seem to be previously unknown images. Unlike daguerreotypes where each image is unique, tin types were reproducible. However, the fact that these are previously unknown, and relatively large format images, would tend to suggest that they are likely unique. Provenance on request. .

        Autograph Letter Signed, to J. Hogarth

      [England Frame: 37.5 x 39.6 cm; letter: 17.5 x 12.5 cm.. ca. 1860?] Manuscript letter from the critic and artist to publisher and art dealer Joseph Hogarth, starting out, "I have brought you back your Lewis's, with thanks for loan of them," and continuing with a discussion of the Ruskin etchings Hogarth "may have — any of them — whenever you like" although Ruskin will "neither raise nor lower" the prices. (The list of etchings described as being enclosed has not been preserved here, but => the letter makes it clear that Ruskin would really prefer to keep them if he can't "exchange [them] for Durers.") The presentation offers the letter framed and matted alongside the envelope portion reading "Mr. J. Hogarth [/] Haymarket [/] J. Ruskin" and a portrait of Ruskin taken from a D. Appleton & Company publication. Three items as described above, in 20th-century black wooden frame, frame lightly scuffed with mat clean and well cut; Ruskin items age-toned but otherwise unblemished.

        Comforts of Bath, The

      London: , 1860. - The Complete and Scarce 1860 Hand-Colored ReprintROWLANDSON, Thomas. The Comforts of Bath. [London, 1860]. Reprint edition, complete and scarce. Oblong quarto (10 5/16 x 12 5/8 in; 261 x 322 mm.). No text or title, as issued. Twelve hand-colored aquatint plates with gray wash borders after Rowlandson, each one aperture mounted onto a paper sheet. Average plate size including gray wash borders 6 3/8 x 8 11/16 inches; 162 x 221 mm.).Bound ca. 1900 by Riviére & Son (stamp signed on lower turn-in) in full crimson morocco. Covers with double gilt rules, front cover lettered in gilt, spine with two raised bands lettered and bordered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, dark green coated end-papers. Ex libris S.P. Lohia with his circular bookplate on front paste-down. Short tear (neatly repaired) on top margin of sheet containing plate 6. A very fine set, the plates as fresh and clean as one could hope for.The first edition of 1798 was designed to illustrate Anstey's New Bath Guide, and according to Tooley, is "one of the rarest of Rowlandson items." This reprint in excellent facsimile was published about 1860; apart from difference in the texture of the paper they can be recognized by the absence of the Fores imprint. Never issued with text." (Abbey, Scenery, 40, note).This series of watercolor drawings gives us Rowlandson's visual satire on the activities at Bath, whether bathing, gaming, dining, sitting for a portrait, enjoying a concert, dancing or romancing. In each drawing, the figure of the rotund visitor to the Bath, reminiscent of Humphry Clinker's fussy Mr. Bramble, provides one point of view from which to view the scene, while Rowlandson gives us an outsider's view as well.Abbey, Scenery 40 (1798 edition); Tooley 408.

        From the year baseball stepped forward as the national sport: Lincoln, the ?Rail Splitter,? is depicted as a victorious player in the first identified reference of baseball as the ?NATIONAL GAME? but also can be considered the start of the tradition of sports metaphors in American politics

      n.p., n.d.. 17.75" x 13.5". "Lithograph, (attributed to Louis Maurer). The National Game. Three ?Outs? and One ?Run.? Abraham Winning the Ball. (New York: Currier & Ives, 1860), 16"" x 11.75"" in. Expertly restored and cleaned, backed with archival issue with only scattered light soiling, else fine condition. The print portrays three candidates holding baseball bats inscribed with their respective political positions -- ?fusion? for John Bell of the border state Constitutional Union party; ?non-intervention? (on the slavery issue) for Stephen Douglas, a northern Democrat; and ?slavery extension? for John C. Breckinridge, a southern Democrat. Lincoln?s bat is a rail, labeled ?equal rights and free territory.? He is also raising a ball, signifying that he was the winner. The words in each figure?s text bubble contain the baseball slang of the era. Bell thinks that it is ?very singular that we three should strike ?foul? and be ?put out? while old Abe made such a ?good lick.?? Douglas explains: ?That?s because he had that confounded rail, to strike with. I thought our fusion would be a ?short stop? to his career.? Breckinridge, holding his nose and turning away, proclaims: ?I guess I?d better leave for Kentucky, for I smell something strong around here, and begin to think that we are completely ?skunk?d.?? Lincoln has the last word: ?Gentlemen, if any of you should ever take a hand in another match at this game, remember that you must have ?a good bat? and strike a ?fair ball? to make a ?clean score? & a ?home run.?? The image is widely known from reproductions made from a copy at the Library of Congress, but the contemporary print is scarce. "

        Ferdinand von Schill s Zug und Tod im Jahre 1809; 343 Seiten mit einem Porträtfrontispiz Schills, einer grenzkolorierten Karte und vier ausfaltbaren Plänen in Kupferstich; originaler marmorierter Pappband (18x12cm) F. A. Brockhaus Leipzig 1860

      - [Ecken und Kanten dieser seltenen Biograph eines Schillschen Kampfgenossen und Weggefährten bestoßen, sonst gut.] Georg Bärsch, Dr. der Philosophie, kgl. Preuß. Geh. Regierungsrath und Rittmeister, hanseatischer Major, ein trefflicher deutscher Patriot, der Geschichtsschreiber der Eifel, geb. zu Berlin 30. Sept. 1778, † 1866, trat 1806 in die preußische Armee und focht 1809 der Kühnsten Einer im Husarenregimente des Majors von Schill gegen die Franzosen, die er mit wahrem Ingrimm haßte. Nachdem er dem unglücklichen Schicksale seines Chefs in Stralsund 1809 zufällig entgangen und gleich den übrigen Officieren seines Regimentes zu unfreiwilliger Muße verurtheilt worden war, trat er, ein eifriges Mitglied des Tugendbundes, in engen Verkehr mit Scharnhorst, Ribbentrop u. A., um die Reorganisation der Armee und die Volkserhebung von 1813 vorzubereiten. B. war der Erste, welcher 1813 den Krieg mit den verhaßten Unterdrückern und zwar auf eigene Faust begann. Mit einem bewaffneten Bauernhaufen jagte er am 17. Febr. 1813 eine französische Colonne von 400 Mann bei Pyritz in schmähliche Flucht und sprengte am 20. Febr. 1813 an der Spitze von 30 Kosaken in die noch von den Franzosen besetzte Hauptstadt Berlin, den größten Enthusiasmus erweckend. Dieser in der Uniform eines preußischen Husarenofficiers unternommene, an Tollkühnheit streifende Handstreich erregte indessen mächtig den Zorn des Königs – der Krieg war noch nicht erklärt und der Aufruf Friedrich Wilhelms III. erging erst am 17. März 1813 – und B. konnte sich ihm nur dadurch entziehen, daß er mit den Kosaken von Tettenborns nach Hamburg zog und dort in die hanseatische Legion eintrat, worin er zum Rittmeister und Major befördert bis zum nächsten Jahre verblieb. Der Minister von Hardenberg berief indessen 1814 den Patrioten wieder in preußischen Dienst, zunächst zur Organisation der Landwehr in den Rheinlanden zu Aachen, dann unter Gneisenau in Coblenz. Ende 1816 verließ B. den Kriegsdienst und trat in die Verwaltung über. [Quelle: ADB]

        Elemente der Psychophysik. 2 Bde.

      . Leipzig, Verlag von Breitkopf und Härtel, 1860, 8°, XIV, 336, XII, 572 pp., 2 Halbleinenband der Zeit, mit Rückenvergoldung und Rückenschild; St.a.Tit.; frisches Exemplar.. First Edition. - Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-1887) "founded the science of psychophysics, which applies the laws of mathematical physics to the physiology of sensation. In his Elemente der Psychophysik, Fechner placed the methodology of this new science on a sound footing by developing three of its basic methods: the method of limits (just noticeable differences); the method of constant stimuli; and the method of average error. 'His greatest contribution was his creation of a scale of sensation, a scale that measured sensation as something different from the stimulus so that the relation of the magnitude of the stimulus to the magnitude of the consequent sensation could be determined. That determination came to be known as Fechner's law..., the rule that the magnitude of the sensation is proportional to the logarithm of its stimulus [S = C log R]. Theretofore there had been no strictly objective measurement, and the new scientific psychology, just ready to be founded, hailed this achievement as its warrant and safe-conduct" Herrnstein & Boring, Sourcebook in the History of Psychology, p. 67 - "In effect, a major portion of Elemente is a handbook on experimental design, the most comprehensive treatment of that topic before R. A. Fisher's 1935 Design of Experiments" (Stigler, History of Statistics, p. 244; pp. 242-254. - Garrison-Morton 4972; Norman 771

        Two Cased Half-Plate Tin Type Portraits of Philadelphia Abolitionist and Women's Rights Advocates Sarah Moore Grimke, Margaret Jones Burleigh, and Abby Kimber

      [Philadelphia?. circa 1860]. Two half-plate tin types of Female Abolitionist and Women's Rights activists from Philadelphia. One is a group portrait, with Margaret Jones Burleigh seated on the left, Sarah Moore Grimke seated on the right, and Abby Kimber standing between them. Mounted in one-half of a leather case, tarnish on the mat, but the image is just about fine. The second is a seated portrait of Abby Kimber holding a small photo album with metal clasp on her lap in one hand, and with the other arm rested on a table. Her cheeks have been slightly tinted in the image. Mounted in one-half of a leather case, slight tarnish on the mat, but the image is fine.Abby Kimber taught at her father's Kimberton School in Chester County, outside of Philadelphia, which advocated the absence of authority. She was a very active abolitionist, and was, among other positions, the president of the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society, on which she served with Lucretia Mott. She was a delegate to the London World Anti-Slavery Convention in London in 1840, which, according to an essay by Kathyrn Kish Sklar in The Abolitionist Sisterhood: Women's Political Culture in Antebellum America, "occup[ies] an important place in the history of American women because it was there that Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton first met and conceived the need for a separate women's rights movement... There Stanton was transformed by her contact with Mott and other American women delegates to the convention. In her memoirs Stanton lovingly named them: Emily Winslow, Abby Southwick, Elizabeth Neall, Mary Grew, Abby Kimber, Sarah Grew, and Lucretia Mott."Margaret Jones Burleigh, according to Gay Gibson Cina in Performing Anti-Slavery: Activist Women on Antebellum Stages, was unusual at the time for maintaining an (reasonably) open relationship with Mary Grew (who was herself the president of the Pennsylvania Woman Suffrage Association), who she notes (in quoting a contemporary historian) "devoted to Grew with that affection passing the love of men which many of these anti-slavery women manifest toward one another."Sarah Moore Grimke was an important abolitionist, but more importantly a towering figure in women's rights. Born in South Carolina but opposed to slavery, she eventually moved to Philadelphia with her sister Angelina, after they had both become Quakers. The sisters were leading abolitionists and teachers, founding a school at the Raritan Bay Union, a utopian colony in New Jersey, where they taught the children of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. More particularly, Sarah became a leading advocate of women's rights, she was invited but could not attend the Seneca Fall's Convention. Her 1838 Letters on the Equality of the Sexes, and the Condition of Women later formed some of the arguments that fueled the writings and teachings of Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Lucy Stone.Our research indicates that these seem to be previously unknown images. Unlike daguerreotypes where each image is unique, tin types were reproducible. However, the fact that these are previously unknown, and relatively large format images, would tend to suggest that they are likely unique. Provenance on request. .

        CATLIN THE CELEBRATED INDIAN TRAVELLER AND ARTIST, FIRING HIS COLT'S REPEATING RIFLE BEFORE A TRIBE OF CARIB INDIANS IN SOUTH AMERICA.

      London: Day & Son, [ca. 1855-1860]. - Hand-finished color-printed lithograph, drawn on stone by J. M'Gahey of Chester after George Catlin, printed by Day & Son, within a lithographed thin single-line border printed in ochre, with lithographed title printed in black beneath. Sheet size: 14¾ x 19 inches. A few repaired tears. Very good. An excellent and rare color lithograph featuring George Catlin firing a Colt repeating rifle. When the United States Senate rejected an 1852 bill proposing the purchase for the nation of George Catlin's "Indian Gallery," the artist was bankrupted and lost virtually all of the paintings and drawings that he had used in his exhibitions. In order to raise funds Catlin proposed an expedition to market Samuel Colt's firearms. Colt was eager to publicize his new revolving pistols and rifles and to have them adopted by the United States Army, and he commissioned Catlin to "paint a series of twelve pictures showing Colts being employed in the field. The terms of their agreement are unclear, but Catlin completed the order by 1857, and the Colt Patent Fire- Arms Manufacturing Company subsequently used the paintings in its advertising" (Dippie). "Six of the paintings were turned into lithographs, but few sets seem to have been made" - Miles & Reese. ^The set, all drawn in Catlin's distinctive style, show the artist using Colt firearms in the wilds of both North and South America. The plates were printed in London by Day & Son, the best known British lithographic printers of the period; Catlin's images were drawn on stone by J. M'Gahey of Chester, England. These prints are not in any of the standard bibliographies, and the only other recorded holdings are in the Colt Firearms Collection (Connecticut State Library in Hartford), the Amon Carter Museum, Yale University (the Paul Mellon set), and the Wadsworth Athenaeum. ^Text beneath the image reads: ^"It having been reported by one of my party that I had a Medicine Gun, which would fire all day without reloading, the Men, Women & Children, assembled in front of the Chief's Lodge to get a sight of it, - when I found it necessary to make an exhibition - and arranged a target at a suitable distance whe[re I to]ok my position / in front of the crowd rapidly discharging all the chambers, and cocked the piece for a continuation, but the chief advanced and assured me they were all satisfied, and I had better save my powder and balls, as I might want them, on a very long journey." REESE & MILES, AMERICA PICTURED TO THE LIFE 69. Dippie, CATLIN AND HIS CONTEMPORARIES: THE POLITICS OF PATRONAGE (1990).
