        Bound Volume of Handbills for Musical Performances at two German theaters: W. Diehm's Forsyth Street Conzert-halle and Steuben Haus in New York City

      [New York]: Lauter & Becker. 1860-1862. Octavo. Quarter calf and marbled papercovered boards. Text in German. Spine perished, both boards detached, modest foxing and small chips and stains, particularly on the last couple of handbills, overall good or better. The volume contains 46 handbills for German musical comedies and light operas, as follows: 40 handbills printed rectos only for Wilhelm Diehm's Forsyth St. Conzert-halle (hand-numbered 2-41; apparently one is lacking) and six handbills printed rectos only for Steuben Haus in the Bowery (hand-numbered 42-47). Each show seems to have run for a week or two, and as they run consecutively, one can be reasonably certain that Steuben Haus suceeded the Forsyth Street Conzert-halle. The proprietor of Forsyth Street is listed as Nathaniel Rosenbaum, but Steuben Haus was founded and run by Sixtus Ludwig Kapff, a Wuerttemberg revolutionist who was forced to flee to the U.S when the 1848 movement was crushed. He served briefly in the Union Army before returning to New York City to found his theater. During the 19th Century, New York had the third largest German population of any city in the world, and musical theatre played an important role in the immigrant population's community, and one imagines even more so during the Civil War. Perhaps because of the language barriers, surprisingly little research has been done on the subject. A nice volume of ephemeral handbills that helps illustrate the vibrancy of the German musical theatre in daily immigrant life. .

        Autograph Note / Page from Book, Signed and Inscribed to His First Wife by THEODOR HERZL, the Founder and Leader of the First Organized Zionist Movement

      - (1860-1904). Hungarian-born, Austrian Jewish writer; founder and leader of the first organized Zionist movement. ANS. ("Th. Herzl"). ¼p. 8vo. N.p., July 25, 1887. An inscribed page removed from a book. In German with translation. "Miss Julie and Helene Naschauer, my excellent listeners." Herzl wrote for the Tageblatt through the fall of 1887 and in the following year published his second collection of essays, The Book of Folly. In 1889 Herzl married Julie Naschauer, almost 10 years his junior. Though their marriage was not a happy one it produced three children and endured until his death a decade and a half later. As Paris correspondent for the influential Neue Freie Presse, Herzl observed French anti-Semitism close at hand during the infamous Dreyfus Affair - the 1894 arrest, conviction and exile of an innocent French-Jewish army officer whose trial Herzl covered for the newspaper. During this period Herzl wrote a drama about Jewish-Christian relations called The Ghetto becoming convinced of the need to establish a Jewish homeland. His most influential work, The Jewish State published in early 1896, was a practical argument and outline for the realization of such a nation. The first Zionist congress convened in Basel in 1897 and established the World Zionist Congress under Herzl's direction. Darkly written on a browned excised flyleaf. A lovely association item in very good condition. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be necessary. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. musikalisches Albumblatt mit Widmung, Notenzeile und U. ("HLeonard").

      Utrecht, 4. März 1860.. ½ S. Gr.-8vo.. Vier Takte aus seinem 4. Konzert. - Leonard befand sich zu jener Zeit (und das schon seit 1852) mit seiner Gattin, der Sängerin Antonia Sitches de Mendi (geb. 1827, eine Nichte von Manuel Garcia) auf Konzertreisen durch Europa; 1866 ließ er sich bleibend in Paris nieder. "Seit 1866 wandte Leonard sich mehr und mehr der Kammermusik zu und widmete ihr bis etwa 1881 seine Haupttätigkeit in Konzerten und Salons. Gleichzeitig beschäftigte er sich mit der Methodik und verfaßte seine didaktischen Werke, in denen er die berühmte Methode Leonard' für Violine aufstellte [...] Die Pariser Stellung Leonards war so gesichert, daß er 1879 das Angebot des Brüsseler Konservatoriums zurückweisen konnte, die Meisterklasse zu übernehmen, die Vieuxtemps und Wieniawski bis vor kurzem geleitet hatten" (MGG VIII, 630). Zu seinen Schülern gehörten u. a. Henri Marteau und Paul Viardot.

        Du traitement de l'ectropion cicatriciel. Thèse de doctorat en médecine.

      Paris, Rignoux, 1860. - 1 vol. in-4 (253 x 198 mm), 100 pp., 3 planches (dont 2 dépliantes), demi-basane chagrinée verte (reliure moderne), plats recouverts de papier marbré, envoi de l'auteur, bel exemplaire. Importante thèse de chirurgie plastique, soutenue à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. L'auteur était interne des hôpitaux. Sur la page de remerciement figurent notamment, parmi ses maîtres, Jobert de Lamballe et Denonvilliers. Cazelles rapporte et illustre une observation de Denonvilliers, avec sa technique novatrice de plastie (plastie en Z). Une gravure illustre cette observation, avant et après l'intervention. Certains auteurs font remonter l'origine de la plastie en Z à 1837 avec la description de Horner (transposition d'un seul lambeau triangulaire) alors que Mc Carthy estime que la description de la véritable plastie en Z est due à Berger (1887). La plupart des auteurs ayant traités de l'historique de la plastie en Z attribuent cependant l'invention du procédé à Denonvilliers. R.H. Ivy, qui s'est particulièrement intéressé à ce sujet écrit : "In the light of our investigations, it is believed safe to conclude that Denonvilliers recorded in 1854 the first performance of a Z-plasty." Il précise que la description complète et l'illustration du procédé opératoire ne se trouvent que dans cette thèse de Cazelles : " Cazelles mentions that Denonvilliers performed at the same session the same triangular-flap switching operation to lower the right corner of the mouth as he had done on the depressed outer angle of the eye." Emile Honoré Cazelles, né à Nimes, délaissa assez rapidement la médecine, au profit de la philosophie et de la politique. Il fut l'un des vulgarisateurs, en France, des doctrines de Stuart Mill. Il devint conseiller d'Etat et directeur de la Sûreté générale. T.J.S. Patterson, Zeis Index, 1053 ; Boyes, On the shoulders of giants, p. 52 ; R.H. Ivy, Who originated the Z-Plasty, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, 1971, 47, 67-72 ; D. Montandon, Plastic and reconstructive surgery of the orbitopalpebral region, 1990, p. 11 : "Denonvilliers, who is usually considered the initiator of the procedure (Z-plasty), published his first report in 1854. Thanks to the thesis of Cazelles (1860), the technique of Denonvilliers became popular in ophthalmic plastic surgery." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

When first established in 1859 by James Cutting, the Gardens were devoted solely to marine life. In the spring of 1860, it undertook a change in direction with the inclusion of zoology, as is already evidenced in this broadside, which advertises kangaroos, bears, monkeys, rats, as well as several species of birds and reptiles. The Gardens was acquired by P.T. Barnum in the summer of 1862 and closed in 1863, its holdings relocated to Barnum's museum in New York. The contents of forty tanks are listed here, as well as fourteen cases holding zoological life. Posting open hours of 9 A.M. to 10 P.M., with a daily fish-feeding at 11 A.M., the broadside warns patrons to "always look through that part of the glass nearest the object" in order to prevent dizziness. OCLC locates only four similar items.

        Manuscript - HMS Donegal - French Intervention in Mexico

      England 1860 - United Kingdom, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, 25 August 1860 - 12 May 1862. Manuscript logbook kept by an ambitious and diligent officer onboard the HMS Donegal, one year of which was served under the command of Arctic explorer and Admiral Sherard Osborn, conveying British troops and guns to Mexico for the War of the French Intervention. Qto. 63 pages. Volume measures approximately 19 x 23 cm. Indication of moisture to some leaves, otherwise in very good condition, bound in marbled paper wrappers representative of the period, labeled to front. Featuring one year's service in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean on HMS Donegal commanded by Sherard Osborn, together with HMS Sans Pareil and HMS Conqueror, recording daily, and sometimes hourly, the ship's course, the choice and changing of sails, coaling and loading, the order of the day, and any unusual events, this chronicle of life at sea was penned by an unidentified Royal Navy Officer whose rank appears to be that of 'Master.' In November 1861 HMS Donegal was one of a number of ships transporting troops to Mexico, and in February 1862 she assisted the recovery of equipment and stores from the wreck of her sister HMS Conqueror. Two thirds of the volume, 40 pages, document the vessel's movements under the direction of Captain Sherard Osborn, 19 pages of which pertain to the French Intervention in Mexico. Numerous other ships are named throughout, mainly British but also Spanish and French. Contemporary to the start of the American Civil War, the officer also makes note of American vessels in the Gulf of Mexico including the frigate USS Potomac attached to the Gulf Blockading Squadron. From May 1861 to June 1862, Admiral Sherard Osborn commanded Donegal in the Gulf of Mexico. On 24 July 1861 she returned to England with 36 military invalids and 6 convicts from the Gibraltar garrison, as well as three naval invalids from the St. Jean d'Acre. Returning for service in the Caribbean, on 5 November 1861 she was passing Antigua, and on the 10th Puerto Rico. On 16 December 1861 she was anchored at Port Royal in Jamaica where many other British vessels were present. From there she sailed to Bermuda, and on 24 December she was "steaming through Caicos passage." Always on the move, by the 1st of January 1862 she was moored and coaling at Bermuda, from where she also supplied HMS Nile with guns, etc. On 22 January she enters the Port of Havana in Cuba, staying there for one week, then proceeding to Vera Cruz fro provisions, then back to Havana, and so forth. The volume ends on the voyage from Bermuda to England in May. Excerpts from the manuscript: 18 May 1861.

        The Mill on the Floss

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons 1860 - The complete set of this highly sought after work from prolific author, and pseudonym for Mary Ann Evans,George Eliot. First edition. Sadleir 816a; Wolff 2060. With one page of the original publishers' catalogue to the rear of volume three, and two volumes featuring their original half titles. Like other novels by George Elliot, The Mill on the Floss articulates the tension between circumstances and the spiritual energies of individual characters struggling against those circumstances. The two main themes of the novel, growing up and falling in love, lend themselves to amusement, but it is stunted growth and frustrated love that are emphasised. Commentators have often focused on the constant rejection of Maggie's talents and mannerisms by her family and society. Even the cultural norms of her community deny her intellectual and spiritual growth, according to Elizabeth Ermarth, They are norms according to which she is an inferior, dependent creature who will never go far in anything, and which consequently are a denial of her full humanity. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original publishers' cloth bindings, with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed, with wear and loss to the extremities and spines. Chipping to the head and tail of spines. Light damp staining to the boards, and sunning to the spines, as well asone front board. Three joints are starting, and all hinges are tender. Internally, generally firmly bound, with instances of spotting, and handling marks. Tide marks to volume ones endpapers. Bookseller ink stamps to the front pastedown of two volumes. Overall: GOOD ONLY. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Clark, D.D. at Albany, N.Y. - January first - 1868 by General Stephen Van Rensselaer." Tipped in at inner edge of one leaf (the other is loose) is a two page letter signed from Stephen Van Rensselaer to Clarke dated 1 Jan., 1868, headed "Manor House", with his printed monogram, 8 x 5 inches, folded twice, short tears to two folds, else fine. The text is in a secretarial hand, which perhaps isn't such a pity. as Ms Clark was confused about which Van Rensselaer gave the book to her father. It has to have been Stephen Van Rensselar IV (1789-1868), one of the largest land-holders in New York, the son of the distinguished War of 1812 general and politician Stephen Van Rensselaer III (1764-1839). IV found himself involved a the 30 year Anti-Rent Wars when the estate was divided. Van Rensselaer IV writes "Dear Doctor, Among the many books I have overlooked, this one I send is the most artistic & beautiful in design & in execution. The title alone renders it somewhat inappropriate, as never has God's enchanted sun shine beamed more fully upon a family, than upon yours.Your, aged friend, S.V Rensselaer" ( the text body, in a secretarial hand, is in sepia ink, the signature in black ink). In pencil lightly on the back of the tipped in leaf is "This book belongs to Eliza W. Clark" >>> Biblical calligraphed texts with fancy illustrated borders, illustrated and decorated initials (some in gilt).

        [Photo Album]: William Zay Family

      [Mansfield, Ohio. circa 1860-1890]. Small thick quarto, approximately 5.5" x 6.75". Contemporary full morocco, both boards with an elaborate design in deep relief, brass clasps with etched designs, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, printed moire endleaves. Very good with moderate rubbing. A nicely made album of family portraits, containing 27 original albumen photographs laid into the slots. Most are identified with small captions in pencil (two empty slots are also captioned). Moderate fading to some photographs, scattered soiling and tears to the margins, five photos have partially shifted in their slots, overall good or better. The photographs document the life and family of William Zay, a German-born immigrant and photographer from Mansfield, Ohio, from the Civil War through 1890. They include a portrait of the young Zay in uniform, when he served in the 99th Ohio Volunteer Infantry (he was promoted to first lieutenant in 1864), and later portraits of Zay, his wife Flora, and their children (Nellie and Clara). Also included are portraits of Zay's brother Frederick (an artist and photographer who worked in partnership with William), and related family. After the Civil War, Zay became a successful photographer, and it is likely that this album was made at or for his studio. A unique piece of Midwestern Americana. .

        The Colored Fruit Book: For use of Nurseymen.

      Rochester, N.Y.: D.M. Dewey, 1860. - 4to., (11 2/8 x 9 inches). 64 chromolithographed and stencilled plates (many plates with expert repairs to verso and mounted on guards, some plates quite thumbed). Contemporary half black morocco, gilt, red morocco lettering-piece on the front cover, rebacked preserving the original spine, extremities worn). Provenance: with "H.H. Washburn" [?travelling seedsman] gilt stamped on the front cover; early pencilled ownership inscription on front free endpaper, and title-page. A travelling seedsman's custom-made sample catalogue assembled from stock plates, including examples produced by Dewey, but also plates lithographed for him by Kellogg of Rochester. "As Rochester's gardening flourished a local bookseller with an interest in the subject, D.M. Dewey, began to collect and publish coloured plates of fruit, flowers, shrubs, and fruit-bearing or purely ornamental trees. Selections of these plates sold by Dewey and others from the 1850s to the last decade of the century were usually bound into pocket-sized books about ten by six inches with stout leather covers, often stamped with the name of the nursery or the salesman offering the plants portrayed within. Dewey also recognised the wider appeal of the coloured plates described by Charles van Ravenswaay as 'an innovation in American popular art' ("A Nineteenth-Century Garden", 1977, page 20.). Their polychromic attractions were extended to a larger audience in small selections from a larger-sized series presented in decorative bindings, . the earliest plates were simple watercolours, but later, as the demand grew, the technique of theorem paintings coloured with the help of stencils was used to multiply the number of copies as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Later still engraved or lithographed outlines were coloured by hand, and finally chromolithographs printed in colour began to replace more laborious procedures, though some of these were finished by hand too. Most of these processes involved the labour of teams of artists and colourists, one or two of whom went on to establish themselves as rivals to Dewey, though none achieved the same success" (Oak Spring Pomona 64).
